America’s longest war

Photo via CBS News/60 Minutes

May 31,1921 is a day that has lived in the minds of Black America for 100 years. Now, the rest of the world is beginning to come to grips with what it has been like to live Black in America. The Greenwood Neighborhood was one battle in what has been America’s longest war, the war against Black America.

I can already hear the huffing and puffing that I’m making this up, but if you’re not a Black American, the odds are that you’ve never heard of the following incidents linked here. This is by no means a comprehensive list of all the attacks that Black America has suffered. There are many that never get talked about and have been swept under the rug of revisionist history in America. As one former Attorney General said about history, “history is written by the winners, so it largely depends on who’s writing the history.”

This is why the whole argument over Critical Race Theory is laughable. CRT is no ooga booga boogeyman that’s going to destroy America. Look at the Britannica Encyclopedia definition for proof.

Critical race theory (CRT)intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of colour. Critical race theorists hold that the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.

So, CRT isn’t teaching America to hate White people. CRT suggests that we’re all biologically alike and the idea of White America and Black America is something we’ve created that doesn’t exist. The problem with this is that some folks are highly invested in the idea of racial separation, and they will use those divisions to gain/maintain wealth and power in this country regardless of the damage it causes along the way. It’s hard to explain this to people who are incapable of thinking critically on their own and rely on shit peddlers like Mr. Rufo here to do their hard thinking for them.

So, when you damage that “brand” of trying to find peaceful coexistence and make it toxic, what alternative do you leave for those of us who want to peacefully coexist? Bet you didn’t think that far, did you, Mr. Dumbass?

Now, back to what I said is America’s longest war. This whole notion of White supremacy has been a part of this country since Whites came here to colonize the Western Hemisphere. Once again, I know I am going to rile up some people, but the truth isn’t always a pleasant walk through a valley full of lilies in bloom. Whether intentional or not, white settlers imported labor or used indigenous people to do the hard manual labor they were incapable of doing themselves. They had trouble with native crops, so they used Native Americans to grow them. There were rice farms in the Carolinas that were productive because of imported African slave labor with expertise in farming rice.

America’s history has been written to sanitize it of instances that paint the majority in a bad light. The burning of Black Wall Street, Rosewood, and other Black neighborhoods isn’t taught in our history books. The successful coup in Wilmington, NC where a mixed government was deposed with a white supremacist government taking its place isn’t a well known moment in American history either. There are no chapters in American history on Sundown Towns or the Negro Motorist Green Book that explain how travel or even living has been difficult for Black America.

So, consider this whenever you hear people talking about a race war in America. There has been a war ongoing in this country for its entire existence and then some. Not all wars involve guns, tanks, and bombs. The Cold War is a perfect example. Look at those who fear the most by living in a society where we’re all one and the same, and you’ll find those who are active participants in America’s longest war.

America is lucky in that Black America only seeks to exercise our hard earned rights of being American. There’s no movement to exact revenge for the past atrocities committed against us. We only want acknowledgement of the past and a national atonement for how we’ve been wronged and blamed for what’s been done to us. There are still living survivors of this war, and it’s in America’s best interest to end this now before Black America decides to stop turning the other cheek. The last thing this country needs is a very physical and deadly war.

  3. Down stream there was a posting about the cable being cut in Africa due to excessive water causing an avalanche. As the article says:
    “The event would have gone unrecorded were it not for the fact that the slide broke two submarine telecommunications cables, slowing the internet and other data traffic between Nigeria and South Africa in the process.
    And also because of the prescient action of researchers who had lined the length of the Congo Canyon with instruments capable of measuring current and sediment velocities.”

    There’s a reason to spend money on science. We might not be able to understand it, and we do need to ask, and we should be able to get an explanation in plain English. But………at the end of the day, we are stupid if we don’t fund it.

  7. Mo’s lawsuit, Mo’s problems.
    That’s “Mo” as in Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), who was finally served with a lawsuit over the weekend, more than four months after California Rep. Eric Swalwell (D) filed it in an attempt to hold him, and three others, responsible for their roles in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
    Brooks is listed as a co-defendant in the suit alongside former President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Rudy Giuliani. While the others acknowledged receipt of the legal complaint without much fuss, Swalwell’s attorneys had so much trouble reaching Brooks they had to hire a private investigator to serve the papers.
    The private eye seems to have been successful, judging from a tweet Brooks sent Sunday afternoon in which he alleged the process server committed criminal trespass while delivering the documents to his wife.

    While doctors, patients and the organisations that support them are desperate for treatments that can slow mental deterioration, the usefulness of the new drug,aducanumab, is disputed by scientists. Two trials were stopped in March 2019 because the drugs appeared not to work. The manufacturer, Biogen, said the drugs were unlikely to improve people’s memory and thinking.
    But the company later announced that a reanalysis of more patient data from one of the trials involving people who had taken the drugs for longer showed that a high dose could slow the decline of memory and thinking skills and the ability to carry out activities in daily life. It applied to regulators for a licence.

  32. Originally in the Daily Beast: Dems Worry the GOP Will Try to ‘Benghazi’ Jan. 6 Probe

    What animates that perspective for some Democrats is their experience with the last new committee they stood up. In April 2020, Pelosi moved to create an extension of the House Oversight Committee devoted to the COVID-19 outbreak and the federal response. Republicans opposed its creation, saying again that it would be used to attack Trump, and accused Democrats of abusing their power. Ultimately, the GOP decided to put members like Jordan on the committee.

    In the year since, the panel has done some serious investigative work—like looking into federal pandemic loans—but it frequently served as a main venue for each party to go to war over its differing views on the pandemic.

    Republicans are weighing a similar response now. “It’s fair to say we expect Pelosi to pivot to a hyper-partisan select committee, and if she does, it becomes another impeachment trial essentially,” a senior GOP aide told The Daily Beast.

    “If I were her, I’d set up the select committee to nearly mirror the deal they negotiated with Katko so we couldn’t do that,” the aide continued. “But I don’t think she’ll be able to resist the urge to make a select committee that gives the minority little to no real power.”


    • Dems should stop worrying about the GOP. Benghazi (one of them) cost Hillary being the President. Dems should do the same and make the GOP pay like Ron’s senate seat and other swing districts. In this case Dems have the truth and videos on their side.

      On the one hand…
      Since Turtle McFuckface and the conned have basically owned the libs in the Senate for most of the 2000’s, the filibuster has been about the only thing that has kept the libs from getting totally smashed.
      On the other…
      Since Turtle McFuckface and the conned have basically owned the libs in the Senate for most of the 2000’s, Turtle McFuckface will totally do away with it the very next time he controls the Senate because it’s more useful to the libs, than him and his conned malfeasants.

      At the very least Manchie could help make the filibuster a true filibuster, and/or breakable by 60% of the ACTUAL vote.

      Won’t make much of a difference though. Since it will go away next time the conned capture the Senate.

    Part of what he’s hoping for is the compromised VRA will be so weak that it doesn’t have the full power needed, and it will be an easy target for extremist right-wing lawyers to go after.

    “The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect…….”

    I’m gonna drop this little issue on our IT guy tomorrow.

  42. Hawks came through after trying to give the game away however it’s one down and three to go

    The best first round series was easily the Clippers & Mavs
    Mavs don’t have much of bench or consistent scoring except for 2 players and it cost them. They gave it a good run but Clippers were the overall better team last two games


  43. I had Falcons season tickets for a while. Believe it or not, I gave them up because that was a lotta party Sundays even for me.

    Anyway, Julio Jones was the most electric Falcon ever. He was highlight after highlight. And I saw Vick a lot too.

    I had courtside at a Hawks Cavs/Lebron game a bout four or five years back. Was standing about six feet away from Julio. He was being so cool and talking with strangers. I didn’t bother him. I snapped a picture but I don’t bother celebrities.

    Anyway, that day at the Hawks he just looked like a normal dude. Then I saw him at training camp with the twins, dude looked like a two story house.

    Thank you Julio. Thank you for every play you made that would make me hug and high five a stranger. Thank you for those consecutive playoff wins against the Seahawks and Packers. Good luck, man. See you at a Hawks game soon.

    • I hate to see him go, but the last mgmt left us broke.

      Also it gets down to one ball and too many alpha male receivers.

      This Fla kid is a beast. On the highlight reels he beats Ga and Ala db’s like a drum.

    • Julio when healthy has been one of the best WRs during his career however I wouldn’t have given him a new contract the last time.
      At his age those nagging injuries just weren’t going away and they haven’t.
      Saying all that I don’t blame Julio for getting all he could because it is his body taking the punishment.
      But as we have seen many times these late career deals such as the last one Julio signed usually don’t turn out that well for the team or player.
      But yes I thank Julio for being a great player and Falcon…. wish him well as a Titan.

  44. My Twitter feed is such an anti-Manchin crap-tsunami today I can’t really think of anything to add that’s remotely original.

    Except maybe…

    Joe is kinda like Dick Cheney and the Vietnam era draft.

    He has “other priorities”.

  45. I don’t care if the whiny wimp wore his pants backwards or not. He looked like a buffoon because he is a buffoon. He is still a threat to our Republic and so are his supporters, also, buffoons.

  46. Posted on the FB by a trumpy friend (and they say it’s not a cult):
    “For all the “Great Researchers” out there in the “Truth Community” who rail against anyone who says President Trump is a “Good Guy” and that he comes from a Godly line, and not an Illuminati one…
    Well, this is for you…SHILLS…
    In 1902, Elizabeth married Friedrich Drumpf, a man from Kallstadt Germany, a few miles away from Germany’s oldest city, Trier, a city founded by ancient Assyrian settlers 1300 years prior to the Romans, who they intermingled with around 6 A.D.
    On 10/11/1905, Elizabeth and Friedrich gave birth to a boy named Fred (33 in gematria).
    Fred Christ Trump married a woman named Mary on 10/11/1936.
    Mary (same name as Jesus mother) gave birth to a boy named Donald (119 in gematria) Trump (88 in gematria)…119 + 88 = 207, or in Gematria, 27 and the Dark to Light Reverse is 72 (3 Days and 3 Nights)…1+1+9 = 11 and 8+8 = 16, and 11+16 = 27 or 72…
    Donald was born under a blood moon.
    Donald was born exactly 700 days before the founding of Israel.
    Elizabeth Marie Christ (Donald’s paternal grandmother) died on 6/6/66.
    Donald J Trump is equal to 888 in gematria (english).
    Jesus is equal to 888 in gematria (greek).
    Donald has 7 family members.
    Donald was elected into office on Prime Minister Netanyahu’s 7th year, 7th month and 7th day in office.
    Donald skipped the 7th debate.
    Donald beat Hillary Clinton by 77 electoral votes because of 7 faithless electors.
    Donald’s first press conference after becoming president was 77 minutes long.
    Donald was exactly 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old exactly 7 hours into his first day in office.
    Exactly 7 months from Donald’s inauguration, a total solar eclipse occurred, the first since before 1776 (which is 888 + 888).
    All these events in Donald’s first year happened in the Hebrew year 5777.
    On 7/7/17, Donald J Trump met with Vladimir Putin for the first time face to face, when Putin was exactly 777 months old to the day in the year 5777.
    The name Donald John Trump means “the ruler of the world, graced by God and a descendant of a war drummer.”
    ALL of this is VERIFIABLE…ALL of this is TRUE…Deal with it Satan…”
