BLACK PEOPLE VOTING TODAY
Afrocentric Voters have a Spiritual “ME/WE” orientation to African Tradition’s Right Life Living. This means they will do every reasonable and available thing to help their children, the jobless, the deprived, rejected, starving, the otherwise voiceless struggling, and themselves. Their focus is on those to be served and to avoid the uses politicians want to make of them. They, in contrast to the rich, have no lobby promoting their interests. The parties, especially Republicans, lack moral rightness but are united by money, greed, power, & “faceless” hatred for feigned Colored enemies. Yet, Black Vote Power increases all candidates’ hearing ability. Ones mind is Enslaved when one does not vote or votes without being educated to the real “big picture” of what is going on. These make one a non-contributor to the struggle, like having a temper tantrum for being how one is + contribute to elections of Bad people + accept being ruled by brutish controlling powers–powers using their own “Inside-Out” thinking versions for self-interest and to worsen the poor’s miseries. They institute “SEEMS” right bamboozling measures for self-worship while generating Delusions that blind the public to seeing “the elephant in the room”. Blindness to the obvious is done by presenting attractive but false information that “SEEMS” right–and repeating it until “everybody” accepts it. The un-rich pay for the rich’s benefits, as their own benefits are cut. The two most important reasons for the USA’s history of lynching, mob violence, disfranchisement, unequal distribution of school funds, incarceration, joblessness, inadequate health care, racism, segregation, discrimination, “Killer” police, and the like, is to keep Colored People economically exploitable and for Supernaturals to feel as if they are “superior” to anything.
Pointers I selected from Dr. Mildred Henry’s article entitled: “I AM Voting” are: “Regardless of everything working against them, for Black Americans to be able to vote has been paid for with threats, harm, blood, sweat, tears, and lives. Black people were castigated, tortured, lynched and suffered terrible deaths for just expressing the desire to vote. It was through the power of the vote that we defeated segregationists George Wallace of Alabama, and Governors Lester Maddox and Orville Faubus of Arkansas. If one of the reported leaders of the BLM is an attorney, as reported, he should be well aware of the court battles of Attorney and Chief Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall. As an Arkansan, I watched Attorney Thurgood Marshall and local attorneys like Attorney George Howard, engage in battle on behalf of the Little Rock Nine students’ effort to get an education at Central High School. Mrs. Daisy Bates and the State Press Newspaper (distributed by my mother) espoused the power of the vote to change the segregationist structure in Arkansas. These students (and many others) endured insults, life threats, personal danger, and loss of life to get a competitive education and learn that using the word “Ain’t” was not acceptable in the competitive corporate world.
We fought for a competitive education and the right to vote in order to right the wrongs. If Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth; Fannie Lou Hamer; the Mississippi Freedom Riders; Barbara Jordan, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others had a defeatist attitude or lacked the Courage to go against overwhelming forces, all of us would be less well off.” Dr. Henry said about her family: “We survived in spite of the racists who burned our family cotton gin (3 times) and general store to the ground. Our family provided merchandise, and rides for neighbors to go to town, to register, to vote, to shop, and to conduct business. Comradery existed whereby you picked up and provided a ride to someone walking by the side of the road. We survived in spite of the fact that schools for Black children were closed 3 and 4 months of the school year to work in the cotton fields. We survived in spite of having to walk 10 miles to school while school buses for white children threw dust up in our faces. We survived many adversities in order to be where we are today. I WILLvote.”
As was the policy in ancient Rome, today’s politicians and supporters spend unthinkable money sums on “the Games” they sponsor in hopes of swaying public opinion in their favor, courting votes, and/or disposing of any person or faction they want out of the way—like Black voters. There is no “Black Privilege”—as enables White Privilege to feature getting something for nothing. Hardships ought to prepare one to do extraordinary things for what should be ordinary Right Life Living. jabaileymd.com
