Exactly! As why they are deemed LOST people who have no vision or history of who they really are and who they can potentially become. In many upon many ways it is homicide and genocide wrapped up in one. Tragic. But!.
Black folks have been a commodity, first as slaves, now as prison issue whose value is in shoveling cash into the ugly belly of the prison industrial beast. We know, 4 of 5 in prison are in for non-violent crime, using drugs. If 4 in 5 were set free, $ billions would be lost. Is it about black folks, per se, or is it always about power, money, resources and theft with incidental genocide thrown in for evil measure on a criminally insane planet? I see the selection of victims as incidental. If you can be used, worked, bled, slaved, and milked for your energy and money, then power/money wants you. There is no power move without a money move. Money is not life’s center but it is survival armor in a soul-less culture.
I have no hopes for any kind of unity. I remember, for one example, when the Black Panthers were showing the film, Battle of Algiers, like it meant something. When I was in Algeria, I spoke with a working man who had fought on the Arab side against the French. He said the French had severely tortured him, pulled out his fingernails, ouch. His side won and so what. He kind of shrugged his shoulders and said he was a poor man before the revolution and was the same now. His conditions hadn’t changed.
The just person rages in the wilderness. To internally walk with the Supreme, to any degree, that’s as good as it gets. Looking at the evidence of thousands of years, don’t wait around. There’s no expectation, IMHO, of any depraved moderate or radical human institutions admitting their religious and political lies out here in 3-D. That goes triple for so-called civilized groups who commit mass genocide in the name of the idols they worship.
Islam, Judaism, and Christianity are all hateful hypocrites, all war-god worshipping cults. Listened more to Farrakhan’s talks to see if I missed something. He’s a separate but equal analogue of white hate preachers with skill in riling people up, the type of guy who angrily blames the Jews if he has a difficult BM. Not enough. Jews seemed to go spiritually downhill after WWII. Their hard-liners think only about survival, babbling about ethics while mistreating Palestinians. As for Christian missionsaries, right, we know! It’s all a social madness cluster-f.
Politics, if worth anything, should improve people’s circumstances. Religion, if worth anything, is about unconditional love. Ideas can inspire. Changing people’s circumstances for the better makes more sense than religious ignorance and political arrogance. More between self and God and doing something positive to help others. What else?
