I’m back… and I have my Peculiar Glasses on.I’ve noticed a trend of an obsession among local (Houston, TX) and national white conservative talk show hosts for the topic of “Black People.” You know, why do Black People do this, or why do Black People do that, or Black people should feel this way or that. I find myself looking inquisitively at my radio or TV and asking, “Why are YOU worried about it?”
I mean, unfortunately, we, as Blacks, are self-checked (more on that later). We are not disturbing the pot. According to these very conservatives, “the Mexicans are taking over”, “The Chinese are stealing our technology”, “the Muslims are trying to kill us all…” So why the over flowing obsession to want to talk badly about Black folks? Shouldn’t you be more concerned over what these other guys are doing?
The way I see it, through my “peculiar glasses”, you white conservatives are like junkies hooked on blacks not crack.
Insulting us makes you feeeel gooood. The world could be falling down around you, but if you’re “trippin” on Black people, it’s all good. Well, I say, your are trippin… But if you trip too hard, you just might fall.
Down goes the white man… Down goes the white man… I bet you don’t know why you are so hooked on Black people. The answer is the reason I started writing my blogs… You too, are feeling the effects of American SLAVERY. Oh Yeah. More on that next time.
I am the American-By-Default and I’m watching you through my peculiar glasses. And let me tell ya… I don’t like much of what I see. So I’m going to tell you about it, JUST IN CASE YOU TRY TO FORGET!
I am of African-American descent. As far as I know, my ancestors were African slaves in these United States. Allegedly “Freed” via the Emancipation Proclamation. Then allegedly “Freed” again via the Civil Rights Amendments. And allegedly “Free” today.
I am an “American-by-Default” because unlike most of America (European-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans) whose ancestors came to America by choice – they chose their own settings – , my people, my ancestors, the original “African-American”, DID NOT COME BY CHOICE, BUT BY BRUTE FORCE. As such, I am in a unique position as an “American-by-Default” because my existence here (in the USA) today is the result of others’ doing. The environment I find myself in is not based on my settings or the settings of my ancestors, they were “preset”, like “default settings” by those who meant me and my ancestors NO good.As I sit back and reflect, I find myself in this unique position as the “American By Default.” This position, while it is amass with shit not being the way I nor my ancestors would have planned it, it does afford me the luxury to sit back and look at the rest of America through a peculiar pair of glasses. This “luxury position” allows me sit back and complain about whatever I want, whenever I want and none of you all can tell me shit. Why? Cause I didn’t ask to be here anyway.
If anything negative is going on as it relates to me, it’s your fault. Why? Cause I didn’t ask to be here anyway. If anything positive happens as it relates to me, it happened in spite of you. Why? Cause I didn’t ask to be here anyway.
And don’t even think about criticizing my stance. Since the crimes that have been committed against me, my ancestors, and my kind have been so atrocious in the sight of God, and no amends have ever been attempted to be made, unless and until you 1st come to me with an apology wrapped in a load of financial restitution, you can’t tell me shit. Do I sound pissed? You damn skippy!
Never Again! Really? Then why do we as blacks fall for the tricks and end up “Back in Chains” behind jail cell bars? Huh? Riddle me that!
- SHOULD THIS CRIME GO UNPUNISHED?
It won’t. And America knows it. That’s why she’s so paranoid.
