excellent reads on our real America

and today the subject matter of this piece has made for a dangerously divided America. I do remember watching that woman in Arizona wagging her finger in President Obama's face. Like he was a child! Oh, but by the fates, she is lucky I was not an advisor to the President. I would have been the "angry black man". She would have been put in her place right then and there. And yes because of decorum, I probably would have lost my job.

I am, after some decades on this planet, so goddamn sick of white people in America feeling they are superior to any other person of colour, African-American specifically, on this planet. The father of her then BFF, "who had always been kind" to the author of this piece, spoke a universal truth believed always by millions of white Americans. That genetically and culturally they are "superior" to any race whose pigment is their target.

I also believe without equivocation, that the Filipino wife was humiliated or not still believed she and her mate were superior to the African-American also. Racism is poisonous and causes cultural rot. Rita Moreno found that out when she uttered an "inconvenient truth" about cross-cultural racism among people of colour.

It's as primitive a racial matter as the survival of the tribe. To me, it's a key in understanding racist and ideological thoughts, actions concerning race among millions of white Americans. In Africans or the Caucasian, Spanish speaking, Native to the land Peoples'-Nations, racism or the rot currently or historically have not been conquered and methinks, never will.

I sure hope I'm wrong and we work our way through this conundrum of superiority and inferiority. Based on the pigment of one's skin or lack thereof.

73 years of this shit personally. The history of the American racial divide keeps filling volumes. I hope we get it together if we want our democracy to continue to thrive. Because hate is a rot also.
