Why I Did NOT ‘Celebrate’ Juneteenth

 

 

So, what exactly is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth

[jo͞oːnˌtēːnTH, ˌjo͞onˈtēnTH, jo͞o:nˈtē:nTH]

a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.

So when you look at why Juneteenth is celebrated and you look at what emancipation means, tell me, American Descendants of Slavery, how are you free, liberated, unshackled, unyoked, uncaged, unbridled and unfettered?

When the protesters were in Minneapolis going the fuck off, those who are descendants of the racist shits that enslaved our ancestors were busy spying on the mostly Black protesters via drones, spy planes and spy helicopters in order to arrest people who were supposedly, liberated. But we know that we are not liberated because the protesters were protesting because a Black man was detained and murdered for no reason. So, what were you celebrating on Juneteenth? That you enjoy enslavement? That you enjoy being spied on by the same government that dragged your ancestors here to become slaves for them? Did you celebrate Juneteenth because the whites are championing that day as though there is some meaning to it for us because if you are, then you are so stupid that you could actually be made to believe that shit don’t stink.

As long as the whites are telling you to ‘celebrate’ some bullshit, why…there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Black History Month…well, there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day…why there you go. Those days have no meaning for us. Those days are the whites’ way of saying, “Look, I’ve given you much to celebrate. Now go out and buy shit and shut the hell up because that is all that we owe you. Fuck reparations. You’ll get a few days in which to celebrate what you think are freedoms.” And you know what, most of us do just that. You accept so little and will rejoice over a turd handed to you, especially if you are being told that that turd has special significance to you.

Whites are flaming liars, thieves, criminals and murderers; that’s what they’ve always been and that’s what they always will be. You cannot expect whites to do shit that would make a gnat’s ass worth of real difference in your life. They will talk shit to you and hope that you continue to buy it and eat it and you do and so why would they feel pressured to actually do anything of substance; anything of meaning? They wouldn’t.

When you celebrated Juneteenth, did it put any money into your pocket? Did it give you health insurance? Did it cure your diabetes since you have diabetes because of poor diet because you work minimum wage jobs and cannot afford the proper foods with nutrients needed for a healthy body? Did it move you out of a crime infested neighborhood that is wracked with gang violence? Did it close down the liquor store in your neighborhood owned by a foreigner brought over here for the express purpose of further reducing your time spent on this planet above ground? Did celebrating Juneteenth get the bank to approve a home loan for you? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you approved for an apartment in a nice section of town? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you into college? What was the purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth? There was none and the whites know this. The purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth was all for the whites. It had absolutely nothing to do with you since the whites know that whatever bone they toss you, you will run with it, be thankful for it and don’t question why the whites are hyping up some piece of shit ‘day of emancipation’ that never took place, because make no mistake, we are still slaves. We are still slaves in every way.

Look around you. What group in this country is in the worst possible condition? The group that was hellbent on celebrating Juneteenth, that’s who. What the fuck do you have to celebrate? American descendants of slavery are the poster children for homelessness, income inequality, mass incarceration, abject hunger, childhood poverty, high school drop-out rates out of the ballpark, inadequate or no health care, high mortality rates for Black women, babies and children and for both Black men and women, high mortality rates from being murdered by cops. And statistically speaking, we are at the bottom, economically and so disadvantaged, it has been stated that Black household wealth stands at $7.00. We have no real and true wealth; no tangible and intangible assets.

But that was not always the case. Whites destroyed everything we ever built for ourselves, from our homes to our institutions to our movements and so why do you think that they have no problem with us ‘celebrating’ Juneteenth, Black History Month and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day? It is because that is ALL we are to have. And for most of you, that seems to be enough!

And yet, when the protests were raging, all we heard from the whites and from the Black misleaders was, “Look! They are burning down their own neighborhoods!” What fucking neighborhoods do we own? Black people don’t own shit! The lone Black barbershop on the corner is nothing to screech about because, HELL! In Baltimore, MD, Black people have taken to doing curbside barbering. Those goddamn foreigners that the whites have over here on expired visas own that shit that was burned to the ground. If you look at the news out of Minneapolis, there was some Somali man standing there talking about how he owned this and that and was going to help the burned out community. SERIOUSLY??!! How did his tree climbing ass, crawl down from a tree in Somalia, fly the fuck over here and own some damn businesses when Black people, who were born here and are descendants of slaves, have to operate a ‘curbside’ barbershop and yet the whites and the Black misleaders want to exclaim that we are burning down our own damn businesses? What businesses? Yeah! Go do your research and get back to me on that. American descendants of slavery are doing so poorly because it is by design. Whites know why! And they intend on keeping that status quo the same for why else is every other group that comes over here, given every advantage in the world to build up shit, while our shit gets torn down by the whites who spy on us, constantly? They spy on us to make sure that we don’t get any ideas that we are ever going to get ahead because they make damn sure that they nip that shit in the bud before it can even get off the goddamn ground.

But we can happily celebrate Juneteenth because it does NOTHING for us! It is not supposed to, but we are satisfied because Amerikkka, this fucking year, celebrated Juneteenth with us. Ain’t that some shit??!! Indeed, it was!

Individualism Is a Hoax — The Native Black American

Angered and tired of being the mules for wealthy warmongers, indentured Whites and American Descendants of Slavery (Native Black Americans) ancestors rebelled against the one percent (Bacon’s Rebellion, 1676, Jamestown, Virginia). Since then, classism has been replaced by racism in an attempt to keep Native Black Americans from consolidating resources, materially or socially, for the benefit of their collective uplift and stability. […]

via Individualism Is a Hoax — The Native Black American

Also from the article:

While the institution of slavery sought to annihilate the humanity of American Descendants of Slavery and failed, individualism is achieving what the institution could not – divisive forms of classism has taken root within the group, plus there’s a widening blind spot among Blacks who are generation X or younger. Wealth isn’t being transferred as one generation passes and the next steps into their shoes. Instead we’re seeing generations of poverty or at the most an individual makes it up a rung only to see their fortune stolen or lost by the time the next generation is ready to assume it or some time within the next generation’s lifetime – the fortune is no more, thus, Native Black Americans are the only ethnic group poised to live a worse quality of life than their parents. This is no coincidence. There’s a reason the NBA/ADOS community who have been tricked into thinking in terms of individualism only see their wealth circulate within their community once maybe twice while others see theirs circulate dozens and dozens of times. We’ve been hoodwinked.

True, true and true!

American descendants of slavery today ARE faring worse than those of our grandparent’s generation and those of today’s generation of poverty stricken American descendants of slavery are faring worse because they have lost their collective minds. They believe that Timberland boots, wigs, weaves, fake nails, Nike products; everything has to have a designer label on it is what they should strive for. Even the poorest of the poor Black folks are walking around with smartphones worth hundreds of dollars while many of us are renting when back in the days of our grandparents, they owned their homes, they also were business owners. Entire neighborhoods were filled with Black homeowners who worked in their own businesses and came home to their own neighborhoods. I know this because I lived in such. My hairstylist owned her own home and in back of her home, she had her shop. And every Friday night, every parent of every Black child in town was headed to the Black-owned restaurants to purchase the best and tastiest foods you could ever wish for.

When I became an adult, I danced in every club that was owned and operated by Black people. The whites hated that shit and would send the cops in there to look around and inspect the club owner’s certificates, but in the end, they had to take their damn asses on up out of there even as they had lined up U-haul trucks to haul us all to jail for a “just in case scenario.” Yes, we had to put up with that shit because the whites are ferocious in their hatred of us.

Today, where do we go to eat? Panda Express. Hong Kong Take-out Joints. Chinese All The Way Take-Outs. McDonald’s. Wendy’s. Burger King. Applebee’s. Ruby Tuesday’s. Ole Country Buffet, Panera Bread, Firehouse Subs, Subway, Outback Steakhouse, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns and the list of Asian or Caucasian owned restaurants that we eat at is endless. We don’t even bother trying to keep our money in our few remaining neighborhoods, nor do we try and strive to increase the number of Black neighborhoods. We simply let the Asians and Caucasians come in and run us out when at one point in time, those same neighborhoods had a majority of Black home and Black business ownership. We are steadily losing ground.

Notice how the whites burned down our cities, burned down our Black Wall Street, infiltrated and disrupted our organizations that were about building us up while at the same time, allowed those organizations that were not about shit to continue to operate to this day, namely the NAACP and the Urban League because we ALL know that if those organizations were about shit, they would have long since had their doors shuttered by the whites. But do you ever wonder why there are “Chinatowns‘ in damn near every major city? “Koreatown” is being raised in Los Angeles as I type this while American descendants of slavery are sitting up in Skid Row trying to eradicate typhus, hookworm and a myriad of other diseases and illnesses that the whites hope they drop dead over. This is exactly what The Native Black American was talking about when he said,

“We are dying because of a racist healthcare system, not because it’s inadequate, but because as individuals we can’t defend ourselves from racism. Name and consider the amount of Black celebrities who’ve complained that they’ve almost died giving birth? Don’t let liberals or conservatives fool you – everyone else is working as a collective and it’s time that we stop getting rolled.”

Exactly! I just posted a comment on one of my blogs only yesterday about a Black woman who had gone to the ER in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and died because she had waited for hours to be seen by a doctor while having chest pains and shortness of breath. This happens ALL too frequently and it is ALL done by design. Nothing whites do is by accident. So if you think that I am going to wail and moan, whine and gnash my teeth over Asians and Caucasians dying thanks in part to their own “parasite” disease, think again. It is no coincidence that Asians and Caucasians have been doing the dying from this coronavirus.

In their endeavors to kill us, they never thought for one minute that something was going to come down the pike and put paid to their racist, filthy existence. You can bet your candy ass that this virus would be having NO impact on world markets if it was only killing American descendants of slavery or FBAs,(Foreign Born Africans) but since this shit is impacting Asians and Caucasians, it is having a disastrous impact on ALL WORLD MARKETS. And with dumb ass Donald Trump and ‘death still walking’ Pence in charge, sit back with a big, huge glass of whatever you like to drink, Black folks, and watch the shit hit the fan for Asians and Caucasians. Both are now crying “Foul” because no one wants to travel by air, ship, rail or bus. No one is eating at Asian restaurants and no one is making reservations at hotels. In fact, Tom Cruise is whining that he cannot even film his latest “Mission Impossible” dumb ass movie over in Italy because they’ve shut that shit down over there. “The Amazing Race” had to quit production because of the coronavirus until further notice and has had to send ALL participants home to self-quarantine. Even the 2020 Olympic committee is sitting somewhere on their asses chewing on their nails and wondering if Japan will still be able to host the Summer Olympics, never mind that Japan should not have been hosting any Olympics what with radiation levels still off the charts over there. Who in their right mind would drag their healthy body over there just so that it could be radiated to pieces thanks to Fukushima?

Asians and Caucasians have lost a TON of money in just a few days time and the losses are going to continue. Yes indeed, CORONAVIRUS, level the playing field. The arrogance of the Asians and Caucasians is NO match for CORONAVIRUS. Already there is chaos in Alabama because some coronavirus patients were supposed to be dumped on their doorstep and they said, “Hell no!” One dude who is a doctor even got himself up in a hazmat suit and stood on side the road to protest bringing coronavirus quarantine patients to his neck of the woods. You ain’t seen nothing yet. The chaos, pandemonium and bedlam hasn’t even begun, but it will.

Dude is smiling now, but I don’t think the smiles are going to last very long. I have to continuously shake my head over the extreme arrogance and conceit displayed by whites. They will never get it until they GET IT!

Thank you Native Black American for yet another spot on post! I hope you have no problem with what I added, but knowing what these Asians and Caucasians have been doing to us for too damn long just got my goat up! Thanks again for a well thought out post! Keep them coming!
