By Uncited [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsIn the 1878 lawsuit, Standing Bear v. Crook, the U.S. attorney argued that Standing Bear was neither a citizen nor a person, and as such did not have the standing to sue the government. 

Chief Standing Bear was called to testify, becoming the first Native American to do so. He raised his right hand and, through an interpreter, said: “My hand is not the color of yours, but if I pierce it, I shall feel pain. If you pierce your hand, you also feel pain. The blood that will flow from mine will be the same color as yours. The same god made us both. I am a man.”

On April 30, 1879, Judge Dundy agreed, ruling for the first time in U.S. history that “the Indian is a ‘person’ ” and has all the rights and freedoms promised in the Constitution. The judge also ordered Crook to free Standing Bear and his people immediately. [https://history.nebraska.gov/collections/standing-bear-ca-1834-1908-rg1429am]

When did white people get the notion that other people were not persons because of the color of their skin? This idea enabled white people to take everything away from black and brown people.

It’s time for reparations on the behalf of all black and brown people robbed by these white crooks.

The Words We Speak

Critical listening and critical thinking are the key aspects of effective communication. That entails listening and thinking on a deeper level. Most people are thinking about what their response will be when engaged in a discussion, rather than focusing on what the speaker is saying.

talking thinkingEffective communication requires the listener to hear what the other person is saying before they respond. Interrupting the speaker cuts off the flow of thought. Therefore, people should avoid interrupting the speaker. The height of respect is to acknowledge the speaker, hear what the speaker is conveying, and then respond, once the speaker has concluded.

couple-talking
The hardest part of communication is to remain non-judgemental of the speaker and to acknowledge that there may be more than one perspective on a subject or issue. Few people are willing to accept the viewpoints of others without an argument. Although debating an issue is healthy, arguing from a specific viewpoint may not yield a healthy result. Words start wars. But most people use words unwisely, without thinking about the damage words can do. This is evident in relationships between couples, parents and children, friends and associates, and co-workers.

Donald-Trump-The-lying-lie-detector

In today’s political arena, it is clear that people are not cognizant of the damage their words do in their communities and in the world. People are not taught about the power of words. They should learn to use them frugally, ethically, and for the highest good.

When our country’s leadership cares less about lying about their policies, actions, and private endeavors, we the people are in deep trouble because “Follow the leader” is in effect and young people pick up the bad habits of those in charge. This is evident not only in politics but in religion, education, and economics.

Lying is cheating at its lowest level. When young people learn that those in high places get away with cheating, stealing, and lying, they follow suit and the fabric of society suffers. Good people speaking well is a goal that more of us should aspire to.

Midterm Election Wrap-Up

White-WomenContemplate this: What the midterm election showed was:

  1. A large group of eligible voters is uninformed about the importance of their right to vote.
  2. There is a criminal faction among Republicans to disenfranchise voters who may vote Democratic.
  3. White people love white privilege and will do anything to keep it.
  4. Hispanic people do not understand that they are not considered to be white.
  5. We must find a way to wrench the power out of the hands of the White Supremacist Patriarchy that is heavily supported by white women who benefit in ways that people of color will never know or understand.
  6. Only white women can end racism.

Why Did 53 Percent of White Women Voters Go for Donald Trump?

To understand the “white woman story,” we must first acknowledge that white supremacy remains the prevailing force in electoral politics. 

These elections were not aberrations; white women have voted Republican for the better part of the last three decades. Women of color, black women especially, are responsible for the so-called gender gap in electoral politics and form the core of the progressive base.

Some white women face voting pressure from their more-conservative husbands, a dynamic Hillary Clinton acknowledged in her analysis of her 2016 election loss.

Investments in mobilizing newly activated white women must be the frosting atop a cake of much deeper investment in year-round organizing in communities of color – those best poised to lead and drive real progressive change.

Unfortunately, many black people can’t see the forest for the trees because this midterm election is a win for black America because when black people took the house of representatives, we went from being on the menu to [having] a seat at the table.

On November 5, black people were sitting strapped down in the electric chair with the hood over [their] heads, waiting for November 6, when white America would pull the switch to literally legislate black people back into 1856 chattel slavery in real time. But,  once black people took the house of representatives, then, reprieve, good news, the electric chair blew a fuse.

For our victory, instead of talking about black people like we are not in the room, Trump [said] he regrets his heavy tone and will work on taking the bass out of his voice when talking to or about us.

In a war, there are battles. We have not won the war but we won this battle and, in victory, we won breathing room and a 2-year window to re-organize, re-construct, re-formulate, refortify, rejuvenate, regroup and rebuild without being under constant political gunfire from the other side. So, don’t waste it.

Then there is this . . . Who are the 8% of Black men and 18% of Black women that voted RED? Why did they vote that way? Do 46% of Latino men think they are white men? Do 38% of Latino women think they are white? Is any of this relevant?

Down with the WSP

Down with the White Supremacist Patriarchy!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The WSP has wrecked havoc around the planet since its inception. “The first signs of patriarchy were the ancient humans of the Neolithic Era, which encompassed from about 10,200 BCE to between 4,500 and 2,000 BCE, who relied on a system where men were the hunters of a tribe and women the gatherers” [Source].

The idea of ownership and stewardship might have been a good one at the time it was first developed. But the idea has spiraled into a disease all over the planet for non-male, non-white people.

During this time, the realization occurred that it took a male and female to produce offspring. It is theorized that with this realization, these Neolithic men first became aware in their role in paternity. These same men also began to take private ownership over their individual herds.  Prior to this development, the people of the Paleolithic Era had shared both land and supplies. With this new concept of ownership came the desire to have private herds left to the descendants of the owner. Because of this new desire, it became necessary for women to be virgins before marriage and for them to abstain from adultery after marriage so that men could have the reassurance that their offspring were their own (Lerner). With this new control over women began the earliest patriarchal families” [Source].

Here we are in 2018, over 12, 000 years later and NOTHING has changed???

What is wrong with women? Are they simply afraid of men? White women support the White Supremacy Patriarchy. Why? We need to find the answer and change this paradigm, NOW! Black women have known since slavery that they could not rely on being protected by black men. Asian men made laws to drown the first child if it is a girl. This is absolute insanity!

hhfjk

If they are blind to the terror and torment they have caused on the planet, perhaps, it is time women pluck out men’s eyes and feed them to the fish!

Teachers

We need conscious teachers who will teach our girls to be truthseekers and defenders of the rights of all people. We need teachers who will teach our boys to play fair and respect the rights of all people.

If this doesn’t happen soon, the women of the world will lose the fight for equality, equal pay, and respect for their bodies. Meanwhile, white men will continue to marginalize everyone until they are stranded in a sea of irrelevance.

Racism should not exist

neelyfuller1

According to author Neely Fuller, Jr., “racism should not exist.” [Source]

neelyfullerbook1I, Neely Fuller, Jr., the writer/author of these books, like millions of others, have been a long-time Victim of and Servant to Racism (White Supremacy) in all areas of activity. My experiences, observations, and/or studies have led me to believe the following:

  • Racism has done more to promote non-justice than any other socio-material system known to have been produced or supported by the people of the known universe.
  • No major problem that exists between the people of the known universe can be eliminated until Racism is eliminated.
  • The fear, frustration, malice, and confusion caused by Racism, retards or prevents all constructive activity between the people of the known universe.
  • The only form of functional Racism that exists among the people of the known universe is “White Supremacy.”
  • The people who have the ability to eliminate Racism do not have the will to do so and the people who have the will to do so do not have the ability.
  • Regardless of all that has been said or done, the quality of the relationship between white people and black people is and has been a total disaster.
  • Justice is better than Racism.
  • As long as Racism exists, anything said or done by people that is not intended to help eliminate Racism and to help produce justice is a waste of time and energy.

Each and every Victim of Racism should minimize the time and effort spent doing anything other than thinking, speaking, and acting in a manner that helps to eliminate Racism and helps to establish justice.

Each and every person should seek to do this every day, in every area of activity, including Economics, Education, Entertainment, Labor, Law, Politics, Religion, Sex, and War/Counter-War.

The United-Independent Compensatory Code/System/Concept Textbook: A Compensatory Counter-Racist Code

A prime example of the damages of racism is this historical account:

In 1825, barely two decades after winning its independence against all odds, Haiti was forced to begin paying enormous “reparations” to the French slaveholders it had overthrown. Those payments would have been a staggering burden for any fledgling nation, but Haiti wasn’t just any fledgling nation; it was a republic formed and led by blacks who’d risen up against the institution of slavery. As such, Haiti’s independence was viewed as a threat by all slave-owning countries – the United States included – and its very existence rankled racist sensibilities globally. Thus Haiti – tiny, impoverished and all alone in a hostile world – had little choice but to accede to France’s reparation demands, which were delivered to Port-au-Prince by a fleet of heavily armed warships in 1825.

By complying with an ultimatum that amounted to extortion, Haiti gained immunity from French military invasion, relief from political and economic isolation – and a crippling debt that took 122 years to pay off.  [Source]
