Black Lives Matter: The Internal Problems of a Troubled Community

Black Lives Matter: The Internal Problems of a Troubled Community


iCan'tBreathe

“I Can’t Breathe”, by Giulia Tassi.

We could’ve lawyered up. I don’t like the idea of my community being “The Riot People”. When Prop H8 passed, the LGBTQ community didn’t riot, the law professionals of their community rallied together and worked hard to influence legislation to win their right to marry. They changed the world! When anything happens to the Jewish community, post-WWII, their opposition is decimated with formidable political power. The Jews learned the hard way what happens to a marginalized group, surrounded by enemies and too few allies in government. They learned their lesson well and made up for it in spades! We Blacks need to do the same, but without destroying the hopes and dreams of shop owners.

The African-American community benefitted greatly from an African – American, or rather, a Kenyan-American POTUS for eight years. I raise this distinction for there is a significant difference between a Black person of Trans-Atlantic Slave ancestry that served in bondage in the antebellum South and a Black person of African history whose ancestors were never enslaved in that particular trade era for they didn’t lose their identities. The latter can draw pride of place from their specific country for their history was never wiped out. You can’t know who you are unless you know where you come from. That disconnect is the root of African-American’s lack of a sense of self worth and disunity. With that said, the difficulty in unifying and pooling our resources contributes to our lack of fixing our internal problems that would allow us to meet the help of outsiders half way out of our poverty en masse. Regardless of such obstacles, I feel this is the time to pull up our socks and solve this issue once and for all.

If this little boy shows an interest in science fiction, cartoons and comics at the age of 12, he will be bullied and guilt tripped into acting white through the age of 15, by the Dozens. 15 years old is when young Black men are changed to scary. Don’t let the Dozens and mean girls coerce you away from your goals! Fight the stigma! Strive toward the scientist, engineer or writer and all of the other wonderful things comic books and other geeky interest inspire you to be!

 

We can demand changes in our community, but attitudes from the Red State tax payers won’t change unless there is a clear trajectory that we will be able to repay their investment and pay for the upkeep of said changes ourselves with the upcoming generation (Gen Z) and maintain a healthy tax base. Everything decays. Obsoletion occurs. How will we not be seen as a money pit by the white and Asian tax payers whose high salaries fund our communities in addition to their own? Right now, the Right sees the redistribution of their wealth to a community they don’t admire as resources taken away from the repair of their roads and amenities. They can see Black leaders, but what of an educated constituency?  Like many problems in society, an oppressive Herd mentality gestates among the cool kids in a group’s formative years that is toxic to the fringe societies of geeks, nerds, art kids and other misfits who later do well in life. The consensus of African-Americans who have advanced in life cite an added guilt trip attributed to the fringe cliques in the 7th -12th grades by the so-called “cool kids”: cultural betrayal. Misery sure loves company. When will Blacks stop calling the geeks and nerds of their communities “White” for doing well in school thus preventing them from succeeding? When will the Dozens stop bullying those who chomp the bit and push ahead so much that these traumatized achievers don’t return to the Black community once they graduate from college and start their bright careers? All geeks and nerds are bullied by their communities, but only Blacks call our dweebs traitors. Geeks and nerds blossom late and get rich in STEM fields. Don’t chase away that tax base!

-If we are granted this wishlist mentioned by the agro guest of Marketplace’s, Make Me Smart, how are we going to maintain the resources given or upgrade them once they’re obsolete?

There are Black led law firms as depicted in CBS’s The Good Fight. I came across one as I researched probate lawyers in 2019. Simmons & Simmons of Greenville, Mississippi can help you and I am sure there are many others. Just think, if there were a community of these firms with pooled money funded by wealthy donors looking for a tax shelter, there would be no need for riots. Justice will be served through the Judicial system as it should, with significant power on the community’s side.

It’s frightening living in the Black community in times of strife of this nature. It can make reporting to work very uncomfortable because you don’t know if everyone hates you for what your community is destroying. I am very grateful to all of the corporations that have publicly offered their support of Black and Brown communities with PSA’s. Thank you very much. It means a lot.

Despite the very show of corporate and civil support for the Black and Brown communities, there is still darkness in the opposition brooding in the form of our current President of the United States. Donald Trump has emboldened the shadows among his constituents who use social media to organize their hatred. A recent misunderstood decision by Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg gives a platform to Trump’s dangerous rhetoric. The controversial post is left in tact in an effort to show the world what this madman is planning so they can prepare to counteract him, no to condone him. Zuckerman’s tactic is still risky, for although it is advantageous to know your enemy’s strategy, it is also dangerous for there are militias waiting for an excuse to wipe out marginalized communities and will use the presidents’s rhetoric as a greenlight. They can and will do so one fell swoop in merely a night. Blacks only make up 6% of the population. Undereducated and disparate, we don’t stand a chance! My only comfort is that the Hispanic community, which the militias will target next, is much larger, unified, and knows how to fight a revolution and win. They’ll avenge the Black community in their own preservation efforts should their defenses succeed.

Colin Kaepernick offered to pay legal fees of arrested rioters. Now imagine a well managed mutual fund for victims of police violence and other civic resources the Black and Brown community needs.

Lawyers and judicial lawmakers can avert bloodshed altogether when a rogue police officer loses control and attacks someone from a powerful community. When your community is poor, you are powerless against police brutality and other systematic trespasses. To rise above the level of tax draining vermin in the Right’s eyes, we must close the achievement gap in the Black community en masse. No community is fully educated and moneyed (although the Jews and Asian-Americans come close) but we should at least vie for a majority per capita. We can better protect our poor this way, for in a capitalist society, economics, order and defense are tantamount. To be a threat to those tenets is be a target for extermination. To reiterate on a moral tactical standpoint, to riot is to show a lack of evolution in our community and causes. No Justice, No Peace was so 50 years ago. Turn 2020’s riot’s poison into medicine to develop a better strategy. Use the publicity of the current movement to organize our positive leaders, find and galvanize a common identity everyone can be proud of, pool resources and lawyer up!

Awesome peaceful protester at the George Floyd protest in Downtown Oakland. She didn’t need to destroy property to make a potent statement.

 

Out of My Psyche

  • ...and I am so sorry... Despite a tremendous effort, you were defeated. By the smallest of margins and by the technicality of the electoral collage. You missed Wisconsin in your campaign and it cost you dearly. What an upset.  A bigoted demagogue has won the White House and largely because the emerging industries had not reached the regions of White working class voters yet and everyone blamed the establishment. Well, I blame them! Some say you weren’t likable. I like you. Even love you. If anyone is unlikable it’s the White working class that has hatred bubbling right under the surface of their smiling faces. Not all businesses are established by White males. If I were Asian ( which many tech company owners are), I would be afraid to establish a tech firm in Idaho, so where my core employees would suffer under a limited quality of life due to a hostile environment. You did it to yourselves rural America. The “Strange Fruit” you cultivated in the South and Easy Rider lawless in the same region has told every non-Occidental person that it’s not safe to near you. Hillary the Warmonger, the Millennials call you. Part of your defeat was taking an opportunity you saw in the Arab Spring: capturing Quadaffi Muamar Quadaffi, who no one seems to remember was our baddie of the 80's. He may have been dormant, but no were near pacified. He had a yen for for American weapons and dispatched terror cells to acquire them. He was such a threat he ended up in pop culture.  Watch Back to the Future. It was one of Quadaffi's operatives who shot Doc Brown and was the catalyst of the story. TO add to this: by controlling Afghanistan and omitting Quadaffi, we weaken Al Queada/ISIS. They now have no established power to tell the how to establish and hold a caliphate and no established power to secure weapons for them. These were important steps to weaken them to a glorified, international street gang and we're still whittlin them down. However, if we let Putin do whatever he wants (claim bits of Europe that he wants) we're going to have a superpower to deal with on our hands. This corrupt  because big risk politics is complicated) war monger was needed for the good of world security.Thank you third party voters >:(  We took out Destro Cobrala and Zartan, just so Russia can move in an take over the region. If they’re successful, they set their sights on Europe which had been Russia’s ambition since Catherine the Great.  War is not desirable for anyone, but sometimes you have to do a little evil to do a lot of good. I love just about anything Russian. Mikka is Russian. However, I do not like their imperial ambitions.  Putin claims that he does not want the former Soviet empire back, however he has an unhealthy admiration of previous Russian leaders, Peter and Catherine the Great. Catherine the Great vowed that India would be annexed, China humbled and all of Europe will be governed under the scepter of Russia. She tried her best to claim Istanbul from the Turks. To Sultan’s relief, she died before she could fulfill this effort. However, in the modern era it is very possible that Putin will pick up where she left off. NPR reported a few years ago, that scores of men in Russia fell into despair after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Understandable. Yet, it creates a problem from one of the tenets of government: order. What do you with Bezerker personality types? Their energy has to be channeled somewhere or they’ll destroy themselves and others like a live grenade. With so many people in the vast expanse that is Russia, Putin and his populace live in the very real danger a standing army that’s about to bring it’s simmering frustration to a boil. I fear that energy may be unleashed on the Middle East. A region, as a whole. that has not fully recovered from WWI. That is suffering from the lack of the pooled resources of the Ottoman Empire and is in real danger of living under yet another foreign power. This was not the plan of the West. We may want their oil, but we definitely want the Arab states to rule themselves. All we want is their governments to be stable so trade will flow without interruption. Now that Hillary has lost the election, that may never happen. A have friends who feared that Hillary would bring on WWIII. Perhaps. We all know it was going to to happen. However, with Trump giving a looser reign to Putin, instead of the entire West striving to protect the Middle East, the West , with the U.S protecting it as an ally, will have have to save itself from Russia, should the mood strike Putin’s fancy. This is politics. The great quagmire of desires and solutions striving to find order under an elected or unwanted power. It takes a great deal of experience to wield this power well, and the West and Muslim states of the Mediterranean and West Asia has just lost its chance to contain the chaos with someone who someone who was busy at work whittling the problem away, one warlord at a time. Stay in touch, Hillary Rodham Clinton
