Black Perspective to “WHITE RAGE, THE HUNGER GAMES, AND THE LACK OF JUSTICE FOR ERIC GARNER” Written by Olivia Cole A. Cole


Mr. T:

I guess its just me who realizes the Black and White problem has a solution that the majority of the American society ignores, or too afraid to admit social integration of Blacks into White society is a failed social experiment.

Great read into the plight of the Black American Experience by a White person with a top eye open. Mrs Cole https://oliviaacole.wordpress.com/2014/12/03/white-rage-the-hunger-games-and-the-lack-of-justice-for-eric-garner/comment-page-1/#comment-2923 ,  even the makers of the “Hunger Games” films exploits American Whiteness and privilege for the “Almighty Dollar.”

Just as White men holding power and wealth through their control power structures (ideologies) and institutional systems have done to the Black Race the past 700 years.

The average White person can not dissociate what their eyes see when they look into a mirror from the influence and power of their white skin. “White privilege” dominance in American and European societies is the reality common white people are socially conditioned to deny in public view. Unless they be intoxicated that is forgivable and permitted.

But it is far worst when a Black person looks into a mirror than denies his Black or Brown skin (race pride) is the root problem to…

Strange Bedfellows

Oppressed people historically seek liberation from oppressive governments. However, oppressed Black people in America today seek  relief from oppression from  the  government of the United states of America. This dichotomy puts Black folks in the position of having to ask for protection from the same source that can and often times is the one doing the oppressing.

Since the end of the civil war, Black people have sought the protection of the Federal government from the pro-slavery attitudes of the governments of the Southern states of the old Confederacy and their like-minded offspring. We have and continue to wrestle and fight for every step towards equality that we have made.

We must be as humble as lambs yet as cunning as serpents in this new millennium. We must not mistake who or what governments are and what they do.  We need to continue  to use the Federal government to block the reactionary policies of some of these states while not being naïve as to the nature and consequence of government overreach.

No permanent friends, no permanent enemies only permanent interest.

These Politicians Ain’t Honest

Wisconsin conservatives and liberal politicians with each perspective supporters find common ground in the proposed new Bucks Arena.

As I have gone on record in the past…both political parties are good at selling failed political, economic, and social pipe dreams to the common people constituency.

The broadening inequality gap between the “haves and have-nots” in America is disgraceful on the international stage of global concerns. Yet both American parties have failed to remedy the shrinking / disappearing middle class and the expanding poverty rate in our Nation.

We the People, divided by our prejudices, allow our tax dollars be used and abused by politicians controlled by the rich and wealthy in our Nation.

How much clearer can it be that both parties in Wisconsin are seeking hundreds in millions of dollars to fund a new professional basketball stadium in light of Governor Scott Walker’s proposed 300 million dollars defunding to the University…

“The family has brought some things from home for her. Not much – just a few things, like a blanket and some pictures,” the family source says.

According to the source, the shock has worn off and the family is still holding out hope that she’ll come out of it. “We love her and want her to recover.”

All this may be true, but what many want to know is how long will…

Mr. T:

Do you have bed partners other than your mate?

Think you are sleeping alone? Think again! You’d be surprised at all of the living things you are snuggling up with at night! According to Philip M. Tierno Jr., director of clinical microbiology and immunology at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, “most people wash their sheets once a week, but many others go 3 weeks to a month without washing their sheets.”

Dr. Tierno says that once a week is the most reasonable, as your body will thank you later. Breathing in the dirt and micro debris held inside your sheets is bad for your health. Your skin cells that you leave in your bed become a meal for mites. These mites accumulate quickly over a short period of time, and not only is their presence unhealthy and disturbing, but their feces that they leave embedded in…

WHITE SLAVERY? A synopsis of the book “WHITE CARGO,” by Don Jordan and Michael Walsh – 2008

The Forgotten History of Britain’s White Slaves in America – The Irish Slave Trade  by Don Jordan and Michael Walsh – 2008

“…the Irish slave trade began when King James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17Th and 18Th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.

My ancestor was brought to this country and sold into slavery along with his three brothers. They came over in chains along with others Scots aboard the John and Sarah and sold at auction. They were part of the 10,000 Scots who surrendered at the Battle of Worcester England in 1651. Cromwell sold all 10,000 into slavery in the Americas and the Barbados. Many of these Scots were bought by highlanders here and freed. Others ran away to the American frontier, and some even made it back to Scotland. The unlucky ones endured the same treatment as other American slaves. I have two degrees in history as well as other degrees in education. I always tell my students that if they take anything away with them from my class it should be that history lies. All history is politically based.
