American Workers 3/5 Human Beings

Updated on February 17, 2017

The need for a All Lives Matter Coalition

All lives matter doesn’t mean Black Lives don’t matter; likewise, all lives matter doesn’t mean only white lives matter. All lives matter means all lives matter. All lives matter means that Native Americans struggle for respect of their ancestral land matters. It means that undocumented children brought to America by their parents lives matter. It means those believers of similar or opposing religions lives matter. All lives matter means that humanity matters. Is there a difference in the blood of Iranians, North Koreans, as opposed to Americans and Israelis? All lives have the same blood flowing in them, and need the same clean air to breathe. All lives require healthy food, safe water and a safe environment to grow. Safe environment is what gave rise to Black Lives Matter. In African-Americans, there’s continuous struggle to survive a hostile environment due to political and economic neglect. The very people sworn to protect and help African-Americans from predators have become predators themselves.What compounded their anger is the indifference displayed by other Americans. Cell videos after videos, showing unprovoked attacks by police, brought no help from fellow Americans or their political representatives.

“What is indifference? A strange and unnatural state in which the lines blur between light and darkness, dusk and dawn, crime and punishment, cruelty and compassion, good and evil. What are its courses and inescapable consequences? Is it a philosophy? Is there a philosophy of indifference conceivable? Can one possibly view indifference as a virtue? Is it necessary at times to practice it simply to keep one's sanity, live normally, enjoy a fine meal and a glass of wine, as the world around us experiences harrowing upheavals? Of course, indifference can be tempting -- more than that, seductive. It is so much easier to look away from victims. It is so much easier to avoid such rude interruptions to our work, our dreams, our hopes. It is, after all, awkward, troublesome, to be involved in another person's pain and despair. Yet, for the person who is indifferent, his or her neighbors are of no consequence. And, therefore, their lives are meaningless. Their hidden or even visible anguish is of no interest. Indifference reduces the other to an abstraction.Elie Wiesel

Certainly, Police officers lives matter, like Muslim-Americans, Jewish-Americans and all other Americans. An attack on any group of Americans is an attack on all Americans. This must be the goal and rally call for an All Lives Matter Coalition. And not allow some small group of misinform or even worst, white supremacy menaces, define what all lives matter means. All lives matter means, all lives matter.

America represents only three hundred million of the worlds’ six billion people. However, we set the tone for how industries, governments and human beings should interact. We have gone to war to free others from dictators, genocide and human bondage. Millions have come to our shores for freedom and a better way of life. When America’s report card is viewed, our pros clearly outnumber our cons. However, what we detect today is a decline in positives, due to our affirmation for greed and accumulation of things. Over the last two hundred years, we have affirmed a system that allows us to have unrestricted accumulation of things without any moral or ethical judgment.

The result is a system that sees human beings only as property for the accumulation of things. The truth is that American capitalism sees everyone as 3/5 of a human being. That’s why they can close plants with no regard for the workers, families, businesses and communities since they are properties who are no longer needed in the accumulation of wealth. White Workers lives don’t matter, like slaves and undocumented workers after they’re finished being used. Black people understand the system better then anyone, since they have never been considered human beings in America. Consequently, that’s why they are a bellwether of human rights in America. Furthermore, that’s why African Americans have and will be in the leadership role for human rights in America. All Lives Matter is an out growth of the Black Lives Matter movement, not an antagonist too.

.“Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.” — J.K. Rowling,

All Lives Matter must be a Coalition and a unifying force for all America; a force that will re-establish our faith in each other and ability to create a new self-governing America. Dr. King said, “With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.”
