…is almost coming to an end.
There are soooooooooo many people on the right who are poking fun at the left for making fun of their “candidate”, Donald Trump because we are SCARED of him. Yes. Trump is scary. But does that mean that I am laying awake at night, wondering what my life is going to be like IF this modern-day Hitler gets into the White House???
I’ve been preparing myself behind the scenes for a Trump presidency. Well…the possibility of a Trump presidency, meaning, for a year??? Well… ALL YEAR. Contemplating for a year. But now, behind the scenes, I’ve been acting. I heard Mile Pence say that his family came to the United States in 1924. Mike Pence, by Republican/Conservative standards, is a REAL American. My family was here AT LEAST 100 years before Mike Pence! What does that make them??? By the time Pence’s trashy ancestors arrived at Ellis Island, my paternal AND maternal great grand parents were already owners of the tobacco plantations that THEIR parents had farmed AS SLAVES. In North Carolina. Land that still remains in my family to this day. Am I ***NOT*** a “real American” because my skin is black??? LMAO!!! I laugh at the right with their secret code and dog whistles, blowin’ to Jethro and Susie Mae and Cletus and Mildred. Signaling the end of an era. Calling for the white right to end the golden age of civil rights and equality. Are our rights REALLY based in civility and are we REALLY, truly equal??? Only time will tell.
Not that I’m trying to sit back and see where this all goes. I mean, I will be sitting back and observing but that doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be working towards doing what I have to do to ensure that going forward, MY family is still here, surviving, thriving and prospering for ANOTHER 100 years after I’m gone. And to that, I would like for others to do the same. Black. White. Latino. Work. Learn. Adapt. Ascend.
I don’t want to go off on a tangent, so I’m going to shorten it and end on a point: Pray for this that and the other city/state/country is not enough. I’m sure that there are people in Charlotte who were praying for the All Star Game. Their prayers were dashed today. Terrorist attacks keep right on happening EVEN THOUGH we keep right on praying. You need to DO. Do more. BE more. Organize. Energize. Of you’re still breathing, then it’s still not too late.
