Now then, I’ve done my part to help send American Muslims to freedom via the Underground Muslim Railroad. This is rich!
Before Trump was inaugurated, where were the ‘Sanctuary Cities’ for descendants of slaves? Where were the shout-outs to us asking if we were being “bullied, discriminated against or attacked for being Black?” Where were the people in ANY state seeking to help us with telephone numbers and websites? But now that Trump is doing what he said he would do, it is now time to protect Muslim immigrants and yet again, overlook the people who have had their asses handed to them every single day in this shithole since slavery. The hypocrisy of the ‘whites’ will never cease to amaze me and for the life of me I don’t know why I continue to be amazed over their blatant and outrageous selective empathy and amnesia.
The ‘whites’ get all empathetic over every other group so long as it is not those of us who have a permanent, dark skin tone and who descended from slaves. They also get amnesia because they just cannot remember what they do to us every single day but will instead, look far and wide to find some cause to support; some stand to take but only if it will not make our lives any easier. “Get those Muslims some help! They are being persecuted and that shit is just not right! We have got to do something about their horrible plight! I call on you one and all to help me get it done!”
But there is only a deafening silence when they view descendants of slaves getting the life choked out of them. There is a deafening silence when they view descendants of slaves getting shot down in every city in this hellhole. There are no shout-outs to these people to make them aware that there is a number to call where they can get assistance in escaping police brutality, racism, bigotry, mass incarceration, a school-to-prison pipeline, gentrification and the list is endless. Oh no! There will be no urgent cries for the Black man, woman and child to head to the nearest Underground Railroad for descendants of slaves because you see, there is no necessity for that to be re-started. There is however, an urgent necessity to start up the Muslim Underground Railroad because they are being attacked from all sides. I hope Trump sends every single Muslim immigrant back to wherever the hell they came from. I hope that he calls for a ban on all immigration to this country because I am sick to pieces of my tax dollars supporting non-English speaking immigrants from every country. I am tired of hearing goddamn accents that I cannot make heads or tails of wherever I go and every single damn time I place a telephone call.
This is the only country that will give a new immigrant, a free interpreter. This is the only country I know that prints applications for everything from welfare sign-up to driver’s licenses in at least twenty different languages and still provides an interpreter. I cannot take my ass to Germany and receive this. I cannot take my ass to Syria and receive this. I cannot take my ass to Iran and receive this.
When I lived in Minnesota, I was so damn tired of seeing my tax dollars going to support Muslim refugees from Somalia, I verbally made that fact extremely well known. I did not turn those people into refugees. I never bombed a damn thing in their country; likewise in Syria, Yemen, Iraq or anywhere else. And yet, the Somalis come here, supposedly with nothing and yet somehow they open Somali businesses by the hundreds. Like I don’t fucking know how! My tax dollars are paying for those businesses. While descendants of slaves who were born here and who paid taxes here are now homeless thanks to getting pink slips due to a dwindling manufacturing base, my tax dollars are not going to fund needed retraining programs for them, my tax dollars are going to house, feed and provide free medical care for Somalis, who by the way, opened up their own health care facilities. My tax dollars are going for other refugees who have come here. My tax dollars were paying for Somalis to open up and operate two Somali malls in Minneapolis, MN which are nothing more than ISIS recruitment centers while the descendants of slaves and the Indians are seeking shelter in homeless warehouses. Meanwhile, again, the Somalis in Minnesota were busily attempting to join ISIS. How the hell is this fair? Those ungrateful ingrates come over here and are given free housing and free every damn thing else and then turn right around and become terrorists just attempting to send a bomb up our ass in gratitude. That’ll show us!
How in the world do we overlook the needs of those who have paid into the system and instead will put our tax dollars to work to build up and support those who have not paid one thin dime in taxes, and yet were given grants to open up businesses that cater to Somalis and only to Somalis…AND…who are also hell bent on joining terrorist groups? And don’t even bother trying to contradict me because I have seen this with my very own eyes since I just recently moved from Minnesota.
And while Trump is at it, I hope he does build that wall between the states and Mexico and send those Mexicans packing because when I moved to where I live now, I was told by a Comcast representative that if I was Hispanic, I would have received a discount on my services because businesses are now catering to the Hispanics. Black folks are not getting a discount. ‘White’ folks, you don’t need a discount but if you did, you’re not getting one because it’s only for Hispanics. Sweet, ain’t it?
Anything that can crawl, slither and wash up on the shores of America is met with open arms while those who have struggled all their lives to live decently and to take care of their families are being shut out because America welcomes and opens her arms for those who have not paid their dues but are rewarded with our tax dollars while we languish in homeless shelters, underneath bridges, in tunnels and in boxes. Those of us who have paid our dues are paying higher prices for internet, cable and telephone services so that those who come here and who cannot even speak the language can receive a discount and who also get free interpreter services.
So, do not expect me to gather with those who are the target of Trump’s immigration policies and initiate a group hug because it is never going to happen. I am to this day, fighting for funding to assist disabled people out of shelters and into homes. I am fighting to re-open stores that once catered to low-income people but were shuttered thanks to gentrification and I don’t have a phone number or a web address to contact to get assistance with doing this because those who I am attempting to help are not Muslim refugees! As far as I am concerned, they can just cry me a river and head back from whence they came and don’t even bother suggesting that I do likewise because goddamn it, I was born here and I speak English, albeit colorfully, but extremely well! And what Trump is doing, I am loving it!
