Many years ago, a young Black man and his six-year-old son were walking along the streets of a one-horse, south-Georgia town, when he accidentally bumped into a White man of similar age, bringing attention to what the times considered an infraction.
Though the Black man profusely apologized and although his White man found no offense in what had happened, a few by-standing White adolescents, goaded the situation by deriding their White brethren for letting the “nigger” get away with his show of disrespect. When the alleged victim of the affront refused to give in to the heckling, another of the young Whites drew a pistol and demanded that the Black man get on his knees and beg them ALL for being so disrespectful of his betters.
Feeling that he could not lower himself in the eyes of the on-lookers, among whom was his young son, the Black man resisted, a confrontation erupted, and the Black man ended up holding the pistol and all onlookers scattering, all but the one who initially drew the weapon and the man who they claimed had been initially assaulted.
“Kill ‘im, daddy!” the little boy urged his father, who stood with the pistol down at his side. “Kill ‘im!!”
Though tempted, the young victor in the melee did what he thought was the right thing and handed the gun to the man whom he had jostled, saying, “Sir, um sorry. I didn’t mean no insult.”
The White man took the pistol and told the Black man and his son leave before things got out of hand.
Later, after mid-night that evening, the Black man and his family woke to shouts from outside and the brilliant glow of an early sunrise, but, instead, the sun still slept beyond the eastern horizon. Throngs of torch-wielding, hooded Klansmen surrounded the house, lit by the cross-shaped conflagration that stood ten feet and marked the location of a heinous invective. Thinking that it would spare his family, the young Black man went out and was quacking pounced upon and dragged to the edge of his yard, where he was clubbed with rifle butts and lynched from a large China Berry tree, while his wife and children looked on in helpless horror. The house was burned, his wife beaten, and the six-year-old son who urged him to kill the White man, was bound, sacked in burlap, and thrown into the Flint River.
As it turned out, the White adolescents had gone to the local sheriff, after the in-town incident earlier that evening, complaining about the Black man and urging his arrest. When the Sheriff refused, saying that no crime and been committed, based on what the other White man had said, the mob took the law into its own hands.
Whenever the law yields to the court of public opinion, it is the mob that will rule.
Today, George Zimmerman is on the run for his life, while the mob, led by the Ku Klux Koloreds’ Grand Dragons, Sharpton and Jackson, are whipping emotions into a frenzy that demands vigilante justice. This is the underbelly of American society, which is why our Founders stood as Titans among most, evidenced by their vision to realize that men … and women … no matter how presumably good and evolved, will forever fall prey to their own emotive ideal – Democracy – mob rule.
No matter how the rest of us might hold the Sanford, Florida situation suspect of having more to reveal, it is not up to us to demand the arrest of someone whom we suspect of deserving such. We are NOT a Democracy, despite such assertive claims of the ignorant, including our teachers. We were blessed by the Founders’ prudent contempt for Democracy and its Democrats, bequeathing us a Republic governed by the Rule of Law, which stands above the klanish demands and nature of the worst among us – the mob.
And, then, there is this President Pretender in the White House who took the opportunity to exploit and ensure that another crisis was not allowed to go to waste, when he most inappropriately intervened with his own fanning of the racially charged flames of the Trayvon case, alleging that, if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon. Are you frigging kidding me?!! Well, Mr. President Pretender, what about those two young White British teens who were recently slain by a Black, while visiting Florida? Would your Phantom son also look like THEM? Oh, wait. I forgot. You’re only half White, and that half is in conflict with that Black half, which should never be seen without its hoodie or in public with its White half. I must admit, you’re a piece of treasure — the kind that comes tapered on each end.
Sadly, Blacks have learned nothing from having experienced oppression and the victimization that they proclaim to be theirs, alone. Despite having been on-the-run, since landing here – having been sold into slavery by other African Blacks – American Blacks have, themselves, become the mob from which they fled for generations, and they will insist on having such right, although those against whom their rage is vented have had and continue having no part in the crimes against [Black] men, as alleged.
Today, ALL men, Black, White, or Green, if they are to die of a violent crime, it is highly likely that the perpetrator will be Black. Despite the ever-rising statistical truths of Blacks being killed by other Blacks, and Whites being killed by Blacks, we allow Blacks, my people, to benefit from slanted reporting and massive denial of reality. Today, Whites have been put on the lam by a system of stilted and one-sided political correctness, where Blacks, my people, are the sole beneficiaries of what they once insisted be shared and not held in reserve for the ruling few, which they now hold in … dare I say … spades.
Is it a wonder that EVERYBODY crosses the streets, when meeting young Black men wearing hoodies, including we Blacks. If there are those knowing of which I speak, it be other Blacks; so, who be you fooling?
I have said this before, and it bears repeating like a social mantra. It is far time that Whites and the rest of us stood up…RISE us…and throw the bullshit flag on these social infractions and tell those like Sharpton and Jackson, and their followers, to take their mongering out back and don’t let the backdoor knob it them where their brains split them. And, if they have not noticed, please take note above that backdoor that, no matter what they profess, there is no sign that relegates that door to them. However, their contemptible behavior begs the consideration of a “No Blacks Allowed” on all of our FRONT doors.
We’re all Americans, owning homage to the rule of law and the decency that most White bend over to oblige. I say, clean it up…or clear out. None of us needs or wants you.
And I hope I didn’t understate my point.
