A Remake Of Roots…On Memorial Day…REALLY?! Will they ever cease trying to divide us?


Still mad at the White Man.?

Still mad at the White Man.?

On Memorial Day 2016, on a day that was purposely set aside to honor the brave men and women, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their fellow soldiers and country, the heads of the “History Channel” have decided to run a remake of Roots – an American slave movie.  Roots originally aired in 1977, and was based on the family of Alex Haley, the author.

At a time of the greatest increase of racial division in our nation since the 1960’s, the powers at the History Channel unleashes a movie on of one of the darkest divisive racial periods in American history?  They could not do a remake on the Amistad, Glory, or the Tuskegee Airmen? They couldn’t do a movie on Fredrick Douglas, the Buffalo Soldiers, General Hannibal, Madame C.J Walker, or any story about how Black and White Americans joined to combat injustice, slavery, or to ensure freedom in America? Really?  But to do a story on some of these topics or heroes would be counter to the narrative that Blacks in America have always been slaves and that Whites owe them eternally for what some of their ancestors did to some blacks generations ago and that is the “White Man” that is keeping me down”.  Why not do an epic mini-series on the Trail of Tears-the forced removal of the so-called Indian from their lands by the U.S government, the strife between the Irish and the Italians at the turn of the century, or the forced incarceration of the Asian-Americans during World War II? It does not fit their narrative to further divide the two dominate ethnic groups in America – the Blacks and Whites.

The whole world knows by just glancing at the history of America and it’s political and social structure that the matter of slavery and race, regarding Blacks and Whites, is a scab on the nation.  And if they wanted to divide us, distract us, and have us fighting amongst ourselves, the easiest way to do so is to peel back the scab and pour vinegar in it.

Over the past 7 plus years, upon the election of the United States’ first actual African-American, Mr. Barack Obama, the race-baiters and those seeking to divide us and separate us have left no opportunity to dump salt on the unhealed wound of America unutilized.  Every divisive dart to keep Blacks dis-trusting whites, feeling entitled to the wealth of others, and sub-consciously imprinted with the belief they we destined to be 2nd class citizens who are subsequently unable to survive independent the hand of the government, has struck its mark with destructive accuracy.

What I find to be a perverted twist of the insanity of this whole situation is that the Puppet Master, the real director of the chaos and disturbance who seeks to destroy America, has the Blacks in America seeking relief for the past suffering, i.e., White people putting them in slavery, from a government mostly composed of White people, with its political flag-barer a political Party, the Democratic Party, who led the fight FOR slavery up until the official abolishment, with no help from them, who created the Klu Klux Klan, and who’s policies ( along with Liberal Progressives) have further shackled the black American community, both socially and economically, to hardship and crippling governmental dependence, in a nation that still provides the black American community with an estimated $1 TRILLION in annual wealth.  Just imagine if there were not shackles about the ankles and minds of the black-American? As reported by MartinRicard.com in 2013, there were 35,000 Black millionaires in America, nearly 2 million black-Americans owned their own business, and 28 banks were owned by black Americans. Why aren’t these such stories more vociferously reported, humm? Instead, who famed journalist Tony Brown calls, the plantation warriors leave no quarter in attempting to keep as many Blacks mentally chained to the plantation via constant reminders of a period, that at the end of the day, relative to the many centuries and centuries of the existence of Blacks on the planet, as well as on this continent, equates to a minute in time.

The most interestingly over-looked component in stories about the slave trade is the complicitness of Blacks in placing Blacks into bondage and on plantations in America, as well as all over the world.  Though the Media wishes to keep the focus on the dirty hands of some Whites, it seeks to cleanse the hands of the Black accomplices regarding the black-American plight.  If history is to be reported, should it best be reported honestly?  Black-Americans making a profit on the suffering and the economic displacement of other Blacks by keeping the kettle of racial hatred and mis-trust intensely stirred isn’t anything new.  Great pre-1960’s Civil Rights Leader Booker T. Washington prophetically stated, “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

The History Channel could have picked any day other than Memorial Day to air Roots.  It could have chosen to air something historically positive, patriotic, and or uplifting and inspiring.  But it purposefully chose not to.  The heads of the History Channel should be ashamed of themselves for rather than using a day to bring us together to remember why we are so blessed to be united as Americans, to remember the best in us, the great American heroes who gave their lives for the benefit of those to come after them of this country, and for the rest of the free world, to instead choosing to highlight a destructive and divisive period in our nation’s history, to use it for a day of propagandazation of the worst of us, to further divide us for the benefit of only our enemies, whether they be from without or within.  Days such as Memorial Day should be a time for all Americans, no matter our ethnicity, to be reminded of all the reasons we should be proud to be Americans and living in, what is still the greatest nation led by Divine Providence in which we are the only nation to declare in writing that ALL men are created equal and receive our inalienable rights through God, and not man-America.

At the end of the day, we each determine whether we to be free or slave.

The “Choice” Of Trump Or Hillary Exemplifies America’s Moral Decay.

One of my favorite quotes regarding America is by Alexis de Tocqueville, America is great because America is good. If America ever ceases to be good it will cease to be great.  I have to keep in mind that he did not say that America was perfect. Cause it was, and is not. But I do believe in his reference to America being good he meant morally. Though we are not perfect people, we have always sought to be a moral people. Every American and U.S President sought to exhibit strong moral character. From Washington to at least G.W Bush a strong moral code was a dominant part of their character, posture, and persona. And so too as Tocqueville prophetically stated, In the end, the state of the Union comes down to the character of the people”.  The government is a direct reflection of the governed in America.

The last two U.S presidential elections the American people and Citizens of the U.S chose a virtual unknown persona who promised “hope and change” and to “fundamentally transform” America. And true to his word, America has undergone the most dramatic social and moral transformation that anyone could have possibly imagined could have been achieved in such a short span of time.  The open expression of Christendom has been blatantly and virtually made vulgar and repulsive by the current U.S Administration from the military, through the religious-based businesses, to the government schools’ bathrooms.  All of the while there has been deliberate silence from the majority of American people. The measures that have been imposed upon the American people by the U.S government such as, redefining “marriage” to include same sex people, the forced inclusion of contraception pills in medical benefits of private businesses, and the liberation of transgender individuals into gender specific bathrooms would have been strongly and demonstratively rebuffed by the American people of some 40 years ago.  Today, too many Americans praise the Lord on Sunday and consciously deny and or ignore His tenets during the rest of the week.  For a nation that was purposefully established on Judeo-Christian principles one would not know that looking at was happening on its streets today.

So the U.S voters find themselves today faced with choosing one of the two presumptive winners of the dominant political Parties, Democrat and Republican, who are both amoralist, whose principles are on the moon, and have exhibited little or no bounds of conscious in order to get what they wanted.  And who would be better suited for a drama TV show than the Presidency of the United States. Neither holds the Constitution as anything more than a minor nuisance.

In the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, we have someone who openly stated that he has NEVER saw a need to ask for forgiveness, i.e., to repent.  Even though just a passive view of his past shows instances when he has attempted to have an old lady evicted from her home, in order to build a car garage.  He has gone to Ireland to attempt to have people removed from their homes by force, so that he could build a golf course. So long as there can be a dollar made, he sees nothing wrong in his actions, even if it’s via the police powers of the government.  It has been exhibited during his run for the Office his propensity to stretch the truth would make Pinocchio blush.  And his grotesque narcissistic personality leaves little room for humility nor grace– as though this nation hasn’t had enough of this type of person these past 7 years.

And as for the presumptive Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton, from the start of her political existence she has left a trail of torched Commandments, in particular the one referring to baring false witness.  Truth can be no greater stranger to this lady if it were never created such a word.  Mrs. Clinton blatantly lied to the U.S Senate regarding the whereabouts of the Rose Law Firm’s documents during the 1996 Whitewater investigation  She lied to the parents and family members of those slain during an attack on the U.S Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, as well as to the American people, when she perpetrated the fraudulent tale of the assault and unrest throughout the Mid-East during that time was all due to an obscure video on You-Tube – as though people in the Mid-East set around watching You-Tube all day. And let’s not forget that she is currently under investigation for lying about having a private email server while she was the nation’s Secretary of State.  If she were to become the president, she would be the first to be under federal investigation as she takes to the oath to faithfully enforce the laws of the nation.  But hey, what truly matters is that my guy or gal wins.  Right?

Back in 2011, the New York Times had an opinion article, If It Feels Right. It referred to a ’08 study of some 240 youths, between 18-24 y/o, 2 out of 3 could not describe a moral dilemma. And outside of extreme cases of murder and rape, the youths had no concept of morality.  These are the people who are driving the political and social movement today.  And with scant push back by those 40 y/o and up along with those grounded in social and moral absolutism that is more identifiable to the founding principles of this great nation the future for us remaining free and prosperous is very bleak.

Lets not blame the politicians for being who and what they are.  The magnifying glass needs to be aimed at those who put them into office and allow them to behave without bounds.  When one sees a child utterly misbehaving and ill-mannered you don’t necessarily solely condemn the child without also looking at the parents.  Thomas Jefferson’s prophetic plea for us to be eternally vigilant over the government has been long dispatched to the waste can.  Too many Americans can better recite the members of the Championship Chicago Bulls Basketball Team than can name 6 Founding Fathers.  So today we have politicians and those seeking the highest public office in the nation openingly demonstrating severe absence of moral integrity and ethical restraints with impunity.  This can only be the result of a voting populous, and the society as a whole, whose moral integrity have been greatly compromised.

I do not mean to imply the nation’s moral decay started in 2008.  But the moral decay certainly produced it’s outcome. History tell us that there is a life cycle for empires. America’s age of moral decline can be measured by the decline in religious affiliation, particularly amongst the nation’s youth and those under 40 y/o.  According to a Pew Research Study, since 2007 those who describe themselves as not belonging to any religious philosophy[the unaffiliated] has jumped to nearly 20%.  Over 80% of them are not seeking religious guidance. Nearly 50% of the “unaffiliated” are under the age of 40.  What maybe most interesting, more of the “unaffiliated” lean heavily democrat.  The disconnection from religion has been growing since the 1970’s, but has accelerated in recent years.  If the people of America become amoral, how can we be expected to care if those who are elected seek Devine guidance? And if the people rejects the tenets of the Judeo-Christian principles that have made the nation the shinning light on the hill for the world, how can we be expected to remain such? We cannot. As Tocqueville realized, “I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors, her ample rivers, and it was not there. I sought for it in the fertile fields, and boundless prairies, and it was not there. I sought it in her rich mines, and vast world commerce, and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power.”

At the end, it is we the people who choses if America shall be good.
