ABANDON THEM BOTH

The Republican Party has White Americans fooled every bit as much as the Democratic Party has Black Americans fooled.

Both parties make fools of all who remain loyal to them.

Abandon them both—for the sake of all Americans.

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PENSACOLA’S FIVE-FLAGS DISPLAYS

RESPECT AND APPRECIATE, GENERATION Y

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

During the Great Depression, Marian Anderson was prohibited from singing at Constitution Hall, in Washington, D.C., by the Daughters of the American Revolution—because she was colored.  First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt resigned from the DAR—then arranged for Marian Anderson to sing in front of the Lincoln Memorial, instead.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

In 1940, Hattie McDaniel was a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee for her role as “Mammy” in the 1939 production of “Gone with the Wind”.

Colored people were prohibited from entering the Los Angeles hotel where the awards ceremony was held, but the hotel made an exception for Hattie McDaniel.  It allowed her to attend the ceremony—though she had to sit at a table across the room from the tables where the whites sat.  Hattie McDaniel graciously accepted the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award however, stating that she hoped to be a credit to her race.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

The majority of abolitionists in the 19th century were whites who simply didn’t want blacks around—enslaved or free.

In all Northern states, blacks were segregated from whites—and some, like Indiana, kept blacks out entirely.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo, who was raised in Ohio, encountered some uppity Southern women once—the kind of Southern women who gave all Southern women a bad name.  

They asked her a question about a train’s schedule, and she replied, “That colored lady said…”

“We don’t call a colored woman a ‘lady,'” they interrupted.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo also told me of a restaurant in New York that didn’t take kindly to recent desegregation laws.

The waitress served the black man and his wife—but in the rudest, noisiest manner.

She slammed their plates onto the table, and abruptly walked away.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

My German friend, Mr. Vogel, wanted to register to vote in Alabama, after moving there from Wisconsin.

He was told he’d have to pay a poll tax to register to vote.

“Why?” he asked.

“To keep the niggers down,” was the reply.

Mr. Vogel refused to pay a poll tax for a reason like that—he waited until poll taxes were prohibited, before he registered to vote in Alabama.

 

You can put those BLACK LIVES MATTER signs down, Generation Y.  And you can show some appreciation for the fact that you’ve never truly suffered a day in your privileged lives.  And you can show some respect for your ancestors—and your elders—who have.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo’s Aunt Pearl told of her mother—an orphan in Ohio.

At one point, Aunt Pearl’s mother, Lizzie, was staying with a woman who had three sons.  This woman’s three sons bullied Lizzie, a great deal—verbally and emotionally.

But whenever Lizzie reported this abuse to their mother, their mother accused Lizzie of lying—and sided with her sons, without ever even questioning them.

Eventually, Lizzie was adopted by a more understanding and loving foster mother.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo was actually born in Nashville.

But her father died, not long after she was born.  

Her sixteen-year-old mother, Nonnie, had to take her newborn daughter all the way back home to Akron, Ohio—because she didn’t have the means to raise her by herself.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

Nonnie and Pearl had a sister named Polly.

I have a photograph of my Great-Great Aunt Polly that was taken shortly before she died—she was a beautiful young woman.

Polly died in childbirth—at age eighteen.

Needless to say, her husband was heartbroken.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo was “pro-choice”, and I didn’t agree with her on that point.

But her opinion was completely understandable.

Louise—a beautiful cousin of her husband’s—got pregnant, out of wedlock.

In those days, an unwed woman who got pregnant was often treated like trash—while the man who impregnated her was often treated with impunity.

As was so often the case, in those days, the father of Louise’s unborn child disappeared—and Louise was faced with the stigma every abandoned, unwed mother faced.

Louise panicked, and attempted to abort the child.

She and her unborn child died in the attempt.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

During the War between the Confederate States and the United States—and especially during the “Reconstruction”, a brutal occupation in which the people of the vanquished Confederate States were denied their constitutional rights for twelve years—Southern women, black and white, were brutally raped by Union troops and Union League terrorists, on a constant basis.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

On March 25, 1911, 145 young women—mostly teenaged immigrants who didn’t speak English—burned to death at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company factory in New York City.

Women died in Northern factories often—this was just one of the worst of such tragedies.

In fact, the majority of factory workers in Northern U.S. cities were orphans and unwed women, in those days.

And the factory owners and managers—most of them Jewish men—couldn’t care less.

 

You can put those ME TOO signs down, Generation Y.  And you can show some appreciation for the fact that you’ve never truly suffered a day in your privileged lives.  And you can show some respect for your ancestors—and your elders—who have.

ON IDENTITY, POLITICS, AND HYPOCRISY

The majority of Black (Negroid) Americans are not African Americans—they are Americans of African descent.

Their ancestors were African Americans.

The majority of White (Caucasoid) Americans are not European Americans—they are Americans of European descent.

Their ancestors were European Americans.

The majority of Yellow (Mongoloid) Americans are not Asian Americans—they are Americans of Asian descent.

Their ancestors were Asian Americans.

Same is true for specific nationalities—the majority of politicians who call themselves Indian Americans, like the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley and the Dishonorable Ajit Pai, are not Indian Americans, they are Americans of Indian descent.

Politicians like those two bastards love to identify themselves as people of color when it is politically advantageous to them—and White when it is not.

Yet we’re all people of color—and people of the same color.

Just different shades of it.

Immigrants to the United States can validly call themselves African Americans, European Americans, Asian Americans, or Australian Americans—regardless of their races, ethnicities, or ancestral groups.

But their descendents cannot.

Immigrants to the United States can also validly call themselves Indian AmericansMexican AmericansChinese Americans, etc.

But their descendents cannot.

And the reason American Indians (a.k.a Red People) can validly call themselves Native Americans—anywhere in the Americas, not just in the United States—is that native refers to no specific geographical location.

The American Indians are Native Americans because they are native to the Americas.

Political correctness only pretends to be fair—it is never actually fair.

Americans of African descent are called African Americans, while Americans of European descent are just called whites—more by White Americans than Black Americans.

Indeed I suspect that the term African American was coined by White liberals, in the first place—so they could more easily manipulate, instigate, and exploit Black Americans.

Because that’s all White liberals—the worst of whom are Jews—ever do.

Manipulate, instigate, and exploit everyone else.

Donald Trump is President of the United States.

Yet it’s not President Trump who’s causing so much sociopolitical turmoil and chaos in the United States, it’s liberals—especially White liberals.

These smartphone addicts resist Trump, but do absolutely nothing to officially remove him from office.

These smartphone addicts resist Trump, though if they would have voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primaries—instead of Hillary Clinton—they could have likely prevented Donald Trump’s presidency, in the first place.

And these smartphone addicts do absolutely nothing to prevent the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley’s ascendancy to the Oval Office of the West Wing of the White House—because she censored a flag they didn’t like.

They fell for that—and they just keep falling for it.

A REAL AND LASTING HEALING

“We are living in an age of mandatory ignorance, rigid restrictions of thought and speech, and obligatory social and political lies.  If there is to be a real and lasting healing among races and regions in America, it must be based on a common recognition and understanding of truth.”
