The attempt of this president to resurrect the 1950s by blowing the dog whistle of racial hatred has also brought forth the public ignorance once shown by white America. The hurling of racial slurs, the taunting and harassment of young, innocent Black men, women and children in schools, places of businesses, public events and even in the news media, reveals the depths of white America's bigotry.
Black people (and other minorities) are being shot at, and killed by police officers, in road rage episodes by angry citizens; discriminated against in restaurants, humiliated in the news, and insulted by graffiti-reddened racial slurs on their cars, homes and on public property. This is not new to anyone born before 1950, in fact, it was even worse then, because it was normal, everyday life. However, today, as we return to the yester-years of good ole American racism, our millennial generation is realizing just how barbaric and ill-bred white folks can be.
The difference between now and then is that Martin Luther King Jr., was front and center, along with Malcolm X and the Black Panther Party to challenge these inhumane actions and speak against them. However, today, there is no one person (of the Black community) who the public can look to for strong moral guidance. Instead, there are organizations and groups of Blacks and whites who are resisting the racism and ignorance that spews forth, yet their actions have no actual moral conviction.
Someone has to tell white America how stupid they actually look. Someone has to go to the White House and demand a meeting with Congress, hold a press conference, or take a serious public stand against this throwback of 1950 insanity. It seems the news media are in on it because they are taking these atrocious acts all in stride or as if this display of ignorance is an episode of some reality television show.
Not only are regular citizens acting out of stupidity, but politicians, people of supposed authority and somewhat educated are contributing to the behavior of race hatred as if it is a game to join in. School children, teachers, business owners, and anyone who would at one time been considered a neighbor or friend are removing their civilized mask and throwing on their Klan hoods. Black Americans (and many normal Americans) are astounded at the behavior they are experiencing today. People cannot even watch a football game without the race effect.
No longer can whites claim the moral high ground over anyone in this world, not as long as they spew hatred, support that hatred, or look the other way. Black America has a chance to look them in the face and basically ignore whatever they say, suggest, or advise. White America is in no moral position to say a damn thing to anyone but themselves. And by the way, if you are white and claim to be Christian, put your Bible down. God is not blessing America.
