Like it or not, we are at war!
Not only overseas but here at home. We are in a civil war! They wanted it, they now have it! And by they, I mean the autocrats who own this country.
This particular war started in the 60's with Vietnam and the Civil Rights Movement. I know, because I was born in 1947 and went through the whole thing from the time I was 18. The Military-Industrial Complex, that Dwight Eisenhower warned us about, decided after the French couldn't win in Nam, why don't we go in there and kick the shit out of those gooks. We have the weapons, all we need is the muscle.
So they proceed to invoke the draft and send all these young men to be slaughtered so they can make the money! Not people like DJT or politicians sons. Oh hell no, they bought their way out with deferments, but poor slobs just out of high school who had no idea what they were getting into, 53,000 +. Men, women, blacks, whites, all from the lower classes.
That's when this CIVIL war started. The wealthy took over the Republican Party starting with Nixon and Halderman, who vilified the blacks as anarchists and the hippies as druggies.
From that day forward, they have done anything, no matter how vile, to divide this country between whites and anyone who isn't.
We as a country are not only at war with each other, but anyone else who isn't a christian, white nationalist.
We have been at war since the foundation of this country, and where has it gotten us? Our police forces are now para-military units that meet any threat to their authority with brutality and deadly force, especially if you are black and male. All blacks are now met with suspicion, no matter who. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, on the street, in their own back yards while talking on the phone, buildings they own, or walking in a park while bird watching. Arrested, shot, killed, smother in broad daylight in front of cameras and witnesses!
When does it end? When they have all the money and you are scrounging for scraps to feed your family or yourself?
Mankind is sowing the seeds right now of our demise, and it will not be long. So revel in your whiteness, your comfort, your privilege while you still can, because all hell is about to cut loose on you, and quite frankly, you deserve it!
And I am a "white male".
I normally say may you find peace, because I really would love to see a time before I die that man can live in harmony with each other, but I know now that will never be in my lifetime!
