Just Us: How All Americans can Benefit from the 'Justice or Else' March

Updated on August 5, 2017

With or without?

For All

The Black Christian man’s notion of justice does not include his affinity to Jesus of Nazareth who did not receive that virtue. The Black Muslim man must put aside the actual meaning of Islam, which is submit, to allow for the possibility of justice. What all Blacks, if they are to survive and thrive, need is the recognition of individual rights, a firm understanding of property rights, and a respect for the rule of law. In the two decades since the initial march on Washington, D.C., race relations in America have only exacerbated. Trust in public officials like police has plummeted to new lows. Just because Americans have a man of color within the walls of the White House does not mean that the social involvement of individuals has improved.

New this year, women and children flocked to the nation’s capital to be part of the moment. Whites, browns, reds, and yellows all congregated to listen to the words of leaders such as the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. While speakers addressed the inequality of jobs and therefore income, they fail to see that it is in fact a non-issue. The real issue of course is equality of rights. Men and women (Black or otherwise) have no right to have someone else pay for their healthcare, career, higher wages, or any other value that must first be created. Justice in the eyes of the law is the only thing that Americans have the right to in this country. But more and more (sadly) these rights seem to be eroding in the face of cops high on authority and law on morality. If justice is getting what you deserve, then it is seldom shown by law enforcement. The “Justice or Else” gathering can only offer small nods to movements like Black Lives Matter and pay lip service to organizations of its ilk.

Within the 20 years since “The Million Man March,” Blacks have struggled to accomplish what other races have.The solution to social ills lies in the consideration of reason, individualism and capitalism. With the introduction of just a few elements of freedom within the marketplace, Colored people ought to reap the benefits of such actions. For them to succeed would mean that all of America succeeds. And isn’t that what any march ought to be about? And even more important, “Justice or Else...” what?
