Educate Yourself

I’ve felt the last few months I’ve done nothing but repeat myself.  I would tell to my children, “I gain no joy repeating myself.”  My blog postings have suffered greatly for I do not like to repeat myself.  I have been saying the same things since 2000, yet Trump is what it has taken for folks to wake to the mess. 

Today, a young woman made a statement that got me out of my seat to dance for a few minutes, “black savior”.  

 I dance for I had said something offline similar to a friend girl of mine during my evening walk. We were discussing how Black women got what others missed.  Somewhere in the discussion we talked about excuses from Black men.  

I am was a single parent and excuses from Black men, not having it.  Black men were on that same Good Ship Stupid as White people when it came to Barack.  They were expecting Obama to be Jesus for Black people. When the BP oil spill happened in the Gulf, folks blamed him for not stopping the spill.  Folks truly expected Barack to be able to plug the oil spill with his dick.  Just as he couldn’t do that, he couldn’t eradicate the effects of 400 years of systemic racism in USA.  Stay with me folks.

Chicago is no more violent than Baton Rouge, Jackson, MS, Memphis, and several other cities.  It has the same issue seen in other cities, systemic racism. When I type systemic I refer to the direct and the indirect results of it.  Given I am currently healing, I shall end this one by referencing what the young woman said, educate yourself. 

Give to her a follow on Twitter you will not be disappointed.

I am a lover of Fantasy and Science Fiction since childhood. What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
