After the Presidential election, we all sat riveted to the television, watching the numbers come in determining who would be the United States president. While we voted on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, it was not until Saturday, November 7, 2020, that the official call was made that former Vice President Joe Biden was The 46th President-Elect of the United States of America. I immediately let out a yell and a deep sigh of relief! […]They Live Among Us… — WriteSomeShit
Now, let’s see why the author of this blog “let out a yell and a deep sigh of relief.”
What new legislation would reinforce our knowledge that America did not want any country to give us their tired, poor, and huddled masses yearning to breathe free. In fact, this was now a country where Black people were dying, saying, “I can’t breathe,” and the President defended the very people that had their feet on our necks. Trump worked tirelessly to embolden racists, and when a nation was screaming for justice, he called for law and order, supporting the military mobilizing against innocent people across the country.
I left a comment on the blog in question and here is my comment.
I cannot understand why you are celebrating. You want more immigrants and yet, it is a known fact that American descendants of slavery have had to train their immigrant replacement and go home, jobless. In fact, 60 Minutes did a segment about that and I blogged about it. Ask Robert Harrison if he is celebrating. But I think I know the answer to that. He’s not, because he had to train his replacement from India, was given a severance package that amounted to nothing and was told that he no longer had a job. And yeah, he was a Black man who had a family to take care of. I guess they are sitting up in a homeless shelter right about now.
And tell me, who was president when Eric Garner was caught on tape exclaiming, “I can’t breathe?” Was it Trump? I’ll give you a clue, dude had a permanent tan. Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, Philando Castile, Tamir Rice, and Akai Gurley are just a small sampling of black people who died during President Obama’s watch and what did he do about rampant, out-of-control racist cops murdering Black people? Obviously nothing since you’re speaking of George Floyd, talking about how he couldn’t breathe under the knee of Derek Chauvin. But Obama gets a free pass?
Not to mention, white supremacists were doing what they’ve always been doing even under Obama’s watch and I guess you’ve forgotten about this: avowed white supremacist, Dylann Roof massacred nine Black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, during a prayer service in 2015. That was also on Obama’s watch and what did he do about that? Why he attended one of the victim’s funeral and sang a song penned by a known flaming slave trader by the name of John Newton. The song he screeched out was “Amazing Grace.” Remember that? Over Reverend Pinkney’s dead body?
And why does Biden illicit cheers and tears of joy when millions of American descendants of slavery are still sitting up in prisons thanks to Biden railing for hours on the senate floor stating that Black children were predators who needed to be locked up and thanks to the Clinton/Biden 1994 crime bill, that is exactly what happened. Kamala Harris called herself, “Top Cop” when she was the top prosecutor in California and locked up broke Black mothers for their child’s truancy and laughed about it. Was against the legalization of weed, but is now for it. Seriously? She locked so many Black men up for misdemeanor drug crimes, it should have been a shame and then sent them out to fight wildfires when they had no formal training and many died. But that’s all kosher now, I suppose.
So, it’s time to get out the balloons, confetti and believe that Biden/Harris are going to be what Trump was not. Not one Black person in America was under any delusions BEFORE Trump about racist whites and that those racist whites are not just the ones who march through the streets in sheets and hoods, but are in fact our doctors, lawyers, judges, bankers, CEOS of every single corporation and the list is endless. This did not just become problematic during the Trump Administration. Racism defines America; always has and always will. However, there is not a thing to celebrate and you of all people, should know this.
To which the blog author’s response was this:
I think I was clear that racism is America.
What you made clear was that you celebrated the fact that America is only exchanging one racist for another. To me, that is nothing to celebrate.
So, in essence, this just shows that Black people have been dropped on their damn heads multiple times if they can go out and cheer and shed tears of joy over the system of white supremacy exchanging one set of racists for another. On my blog post titled,
If Kamala ‘Hindu Ho’ Harris Gets Inside The White House, More Hindus Will Take Jobs From True Americans, Not To Mention, We Will All Be Knee Deep In Cow Shit!
….I noted that the shit was going to hit the fan in a big ass ugly way for American descendants of slavery.
