The ideal life is one with dignity and respect to all human kind beings on this planet earth. Where there is more than enough to share, in perspective one could say that it's no need to hoard, harm, or take because of not having and or being enough. However, that is not the real way of the world with a history over 400 years old of oppression of a people in every way imaginable. A 233 year history of oppression in writing within the United States Constitution that contains still to this day although it has been amended over time that is stated as the The Three-fifths clause ( Article I, section 2). Many changes have taken place over the centuries of time yet it appears as if there is no change at all when a person is denied care, services, property, opportunity and the rights of due process, under attack of a citizens arrest and or experimented projects in communities, solely due to the pigmentation of ones skin as we all know black is not a nationality of an indigenous people.
What is the difference of yesterday verses today?
Well some might say that people of the brown, red, yellow pigmentation have come a long way and have made some paths along the way and that would be correct. Yet we are still fighting for the simple rights given and denied to others. Families are still losing sons, daughters, husbands, wives, uncles, aunts, mothers and yes we are still losing our fathers and brothers and why?
One could say that with all the movement has done and continues to do hasn't stop the killings, lynchings and oppression of the indigenous, "black" nationality of people. Many of these stories never make it to the news, and when it does it is national news and those who do shine a light on all injustice in the world and injustice has no pigmentation, race or nationality yet it runs rampant throughout the world as we know it and has been for over 400 years. Will it ever change?
Success starts with me and you as we work together to change this generational curses of injustice that has plagued us for all to long. Imagine a land where peace, harmony, love, appreciation, dignity and the respect of all people. Imagine a world of people that can bring fourth life without the worry, if they are going to get the opportunity to live out and play out a full life without fear because of the pigmentation of their skin. Many will say leave the past in the past however, the past is in our face, families, communities, where now the past has impacted our lives in ways that has made it even harder to achieve the peace dignity and respect we seek as a people.
In a world govern by the written constitution that was written clearly with injustice to others to me is a no brainier as to why the justice and due process system can not fix itself as it is bond to the laws of the constitution. Which simply means that it's doing what the continuation ask of them to due or other wise it would not be a need for the black laws book. I am not going to profess that I am all knowledgeable of the matter however, I can speak from the one having the pigmentation that is targeted more frequently through centuries and I say enough is enough! How many more lives do we have to lose to get the point across? Heck for all I know I or someone I know could become prey to the next form of injustice. So I stand today in solidarity of justice for all. From where I stand all this harms everyone and killing one another is not going to change how a country and its written laws affect it's people even after 233 years of being written and amended as we see some choose to look only at one's pigmentation to determine weather they are worthy of life, a life they themselves did not create so why do they feel so compelled to take the life base on very little as skin pigmentation.
The world history and archaeological research has proven that the beginning of civilization is a woman with pigmented skin. So why are we still after centuries getting away with not serving those with the same pigmentation the rights bestowed upon other's without the pigmentation who by the way technically is our family?
The world is filled with social ills, and other plagues that affects every living being in on this planet. We are working together to ensure a better quality of life for all people not just a chosen few but all people brown, red, yellow, white, "Black". As all lives matter so do Black lives matter too.
As a child born with pigmented skin, I can not recall ever being told that I was not worthy of all the liberties that life has to offer. I and many others that share the pigmentation alike have always been told that you come from a great people one that rule lands and governed the people of the land. At no time have I ever thought of myself as better than anyone however, I always have a sense of pride in who I am and where I come from no matter how much injustice, hate, harm and killings that has taken place to the brown, red, yellow people.
We have always had the belief and strength that continues to drive us in continuing on the mission of the correction of injustice and due process for all within the justice systems and correction facilities. I am not sure if I will live long enough to witness this change in the world and neither did many that have come before me. What I work and pray for is that if I don't see it, that my grandchildren and great grandchildren get to live in a more just world where the pigmentation of ones skin is not the reason for their demise on this planet earth.
My question is why is it when we speak of injustice racism harassment and discrimination, some feel that we are fighting and or against America when this is clearly not the case. Injustice, racism, harassment and discrimination is every where and in everything as it raises it's head more than many wish to really speak upon. Always a very challenging and difficult fight and even if there's a win another fight in the direction happens again and again. Are you tired yet? Do you not love anything or anyone? Is there a desire for change ever?
I am tired of asking why, why, why is the world this way since before Christ. I have had my share of unkind acts toward me directly or indirect as well as have been in a position to care for someone who openly called me the "N" word as I cared for them. I must say God is truly real because he provides a peace that comes in times of discord, injustice, discrimination, harassment toward people. At first when you encounter it, it can appear to throw you off but once you recognize what it is and address it and move on. I began to realize that hate comes from a dark place that is craving the light because for what other reason would it warrant someone to take another's life? In general over my life time I have been blessed with the ability to love those who don't care for me and it's alright. As I pray for them and continue on their lack of good taste in this beautiful person inside and out pigmented brown, red, yellow woman at this point has not stopped my life. I learned that good people come in all pigmentation from albino to the darkest of pigmented skin tone's of brown, red, yellow person's all of whom are genuine caring people once you take the time to get to know them. As when you do you will find that the world isn't that bad and a sense of Utopia can be created among us all were we live in peace and justice for all.
On this Father's Dad week I salute Father's across the world and wish you a blessed Happy Father's Day.
As many will not be here to participate for whatever reason. I wish Father's of pigmentation skin tone brown, red, yellow a safe and blessed Happy Father's day as all our hearts are heavy during this time this year 2020.
Know that you are loved and cared for as my late father and my son, son in love,grandsons, uncles, cousins and many more are of pigmented skin tone brown, red, yellow and I understand and appreciate your being and what it means to the man of families of all pigmented skin tone brown, red, yellow people yesterday and today.
We have always risen above all that tries to taint, kill and destroy us and we do it triumphantly to no end everyday. We build ourselves, families, communities and business in spite of all that attempts to hold us back. We stand together to end injustice here in these great United States of America as we have been standing with you through centuries. The power of knowing who you are is magic in it self and the possibility of true equality in the world appears to be an on going fight we have to face head on holding no punches because we pay for it with our lives.
My American Creed
Copy rights of CADes
" I do not choose to be common. It is my right to be uncommon. I seek opportunity, not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humble and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk, to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole.
I prefer the challenges of life, to the guaranteed existence, the thrill of fulfillment, to the state calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence, nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master, nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid, to think and act for myself, to enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say: This I have done. All this is what it means to be an American."
