Coronavirus has lanced open the scabbed womb of America’s past in numerous sectors. From a historical perspective, African-Americans collectively should proceed with extreme caution in any life threatening national event situation.
Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Texas and other states are proceeding with re-opening their respective cities irrespective of facts the virus has not ebbed or flattened the contagion curve.
All four governors of the states mentioned have not proven to be friendly to African-American agendas’ via antithetical laws producing denial public policy they support, introduce, or perpetuate. All four are ardent GOP partisans. All four governors continue to be instrumental in voter suppression tactics.
Brian Kemp’s felonious act of stealing the Georgia governors office is like filthy rags thrown in face of Georgia voters. He is using ‘Coronavirus Petri Dish Politics: Establishing the Baseline Re-open Policy on the Backs of Blacks’.
Update: Kemp’s re-open edict hinted President Donald Trump, a key ally from whom Kemp has taken his cues on how to deal with the virus, was on his side. Nope, hold your horses. Here’s Trump on Wednesday (April 22, 2020) night — just hours after he had, according to a source, called Kemp to express his support for the reopening decision. Trump has since quickly thrown the Georgia governor under several buses.
Be forewarned, cities in Georgia and elsewhere with large populations of African-Americans. The giant collectors of data (social media) are awaiting these reopen dates to establish and collect baseline data for sale to a broad spectrum of analytics companies and governments worldwide.
Everyone has the same topical information on the highly infectious nature of this contagion. The response by African-Americans to re-opening will be parsed in-depth. Tom Burrell author of ‘Brainwashed’, suggests too many blacks seem ‘bred to be lead’. I beg to differ, but the suggestion should intrigue many to look deeper inside their own consciousness.
Warning signs and red flags should be waving fast and high. Do not fall for the temptations to do unnecessary routine activities. If you should patronize any businesses, patronize certified black own businesses. How many black businesses received the stimulus loan/grant infusion? Once again, America must double down on recommitting to patronize black business or else. There are too many non-black businesses that are dependent and successful because of overwhelming, re-directed black patronage they continue to receive. The rate of commerce and retention of what is generated from commerce in the black community is a fiscal embarrassment. Self-denial mindsets if not challenged to change, will eventually contribute to the black economic collective being regarded as impotent, with no unifying relevance. If the black community won’t show love and equity in itself, whom else deserves that love?
One constant argument against slavery repair or reparations is the cost. Most white and wannabe white politicians argue paying reparations would be an insurmountable commitment from a fiscal cash outlay position. COVID-19 mandated an ability to find and allocate funding executable through the CARES Act, to the sum of $2.2T (trillion) and growing. The pus scab on the womb mandating slavery repair has been rhetorically debated with false narratives and false equivalencies.
The accrued repair costs for investments made by slaves was a capital investment. The capital return translates into stock with dividends that should have been placed in trust for the descendants. These past due market instruments are critically past due. Presently those past due notes inherited by the slaves descendants is a national debt.
This method of fundamental business is the American way of creating wealth. It’s time for America to reconcile its books. This is accrual accounting at its best. This nation of “In God We Trust”, a nation built on biblical principles, is now at a real moment of atonement. Either America is a “hypocritic secular state” or it must atone now.
A meaningful conversation focused on enumeration must take place. COVID-19 has forced America’s hand divulging America can do whatever its political will dictates by any means necessary.
Last, But Not Least
For the record,
I am expecting the 40 acres and a mule promised to my ancestors, plus interest. That promise to them is part of the generational wealth to be passed down through our family’s generations. My grandfather had brothers who fell victim to the Tulsa race massacre of 1921 which took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921. Mobs of white residents attacked black residents and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Murder has no statute limitations. Where is the present day moral outrage about families that currently benefit from that human atrocity of murder and economic plunder of a complete community?
The city of Tulsa is an oil town that should have long ago financially repaired the families viciously attacked for being black. In essence that was a terrorist attack based on hate. In legal terms, a hate crime.
Why haven’t the U.S. court system along with the International Court of Justice sought justice in the Tulsa terror attack, just as they did with Nazi Germany and Muammar Gaddafi?
I will pause here to return on this subject in upcoming posts’, but the hate crime victims and their families have experienced quantum denial of due process. This dismissive imposition is obvious selective prosecution, depending on what, where, and who murders who.
