After The Confederate Flags Are No More...
After The Confederate Flags Are No More... Still There Will Be Lingering, Malignant Social Ills In Our Black Enclaves....
Make no mistake, our white brothers and sisters who are domiciled in the heart of Dixie and love the Confederate flag should have known and understand, given its history and symbolism, why it is an offense to Black folks... and common courtesy should have propelled them long ago to get rid of the Confederate flag and put it to rest for what it represented. If you noticed that I said the folks in the South should have done so on their own because we can never legislate love/empathy by fiat; but due to the deaths of the nine Blacks, in a church, at the hands of a racist and who apparently placed his allegiance in what the Confederate flag stood for, spurred the subsequent, ongoing, clarion call for its destruction. The question I have, notwithstanding the mostly symbolic ridding of the Confederate flag, who, among us, thinks that the many ills - specifically, the Black-on-Black killings - and the other social, malignant cancers in the Black neighborhoods will come to an end?
It is not the disrespectful flying of the Confederate flag that is the cause of our not learning or the disproportionate out-of-wedlock babies or the wanton violence, much of it borne out of gang-related violence for turf to peddle drugs. We Blacks always seem to engage in empty symbolic acts... resulting in what is akin to like consuming Chinese food, but then are left bereft/wanting soon after. Take the famous Million-Man-March, did it prevent the whole-sale slaughter of Black men that happens every weekend around this country - was the Confederate flag the catalyst for such self-hatred? I know my history, whereby there used to be signs that said: dogs and Chinese not allowed - how is it that the Chinese are striving academically... even more so than the White majority; somehow, the Confederate flag, though offensive, do not have the deleterious effect it does on our Chinese brethren, but somehow magically we are going to resolve all our self inflicted wounds that are plaguing the Black precincts.
I have to address the proverbial elephant in the room on account of the Confederate Flag issue, which speciously purports that only where the Confederate flag is flying that there-in-lies chronic racism. I say to you that the Confederate Flag is flying in the hearts of many Whites who reside in Liberal New York, Massachusetts, and California, yet they are rabidly racist; the irony is that they will wax poetic that they voted twice for President Obama... but try getting a high paying job in their law offices or banking institutions - I speak from personal experience. The Al Sharptons are quiet on the subtle but lethal racism of those in the East or California because the former are paid off... so much so that many of these Liberal Eastern/Western racists have convinced these Civil Rights pillars that placing a man's penis where the stench of the human waste comes out is the same as being Black - now, this is and should be more offensive to Blacks than the flying of the Confederate Flag!
As I write, I am trying to see if I need counseling because, as a boy, I used to religiously watch the Dukes-of-Hazard. Who knows what has happened to my psyche because of my exposure of seeing the Confederate flag painted on the General Lee - oops, that name General Lee was that racist military genius who headed the Confederacy - I definitely need counseling. I jest knowing that we have tendencies to place our efforts into these vacuous efforts that are not going to produce anything substantively. I suppose now to that they will be calling for a ban on the country group, 'Lady Antebellum' or ban the Leonard Skinner classic, "Sweet Home Alabama," knowing the reason why the song was composed or banning the classic God-Father movies because one of them referred to Blacks as niggers/animals or banning the Bible because Black folks (Egyptians) enslaved the Jews for some 430 years - incidentally, should our Jewish brothers and sisters be asking for reparations from Blacks in general?
Watch as the slippery slope of the Confederate Flag issue takes hold... because there are growing elements in this country who want to bring this country down. As most of the Blacks in this country are concentrating on the trivial, because of the undue influence of the racial pimps, the other ethnic groups are making rapid, progressive gains in our society. To that end, watch the alliances being forged between the majority and the other minorities, while we Blacks dither and cement our alliances to immorality like, as an ethnic group, having the most Abortions per capita. No matter though, when all of the Confederate flags are no longer flying, our 'salvation' will come: no more Black-on-Black killings; no drive-bys; no scathing academic report cards; and a weaning off government subsidies; no diseases borne out of chronic drug use; and no more unemployment - O Happy Day... sing with me!
