The problem the Native Americans had was that the various tribes did not work to protect each other until it was too late. This is the same problem that practically every other colonized place experienced from the Americas to Africa. If we set back and allow what plans the present leaders have to play out without opposing at least parts of it, once they are done with them they will then turn their sights on us.Peace and Blessings Family,
I just don't know how one can substantively do this.
Fight for another's child, when their own child is being shot down mercilessly in the street?
How do you do it? Is there a guide, manual, book of instruction on this?
Is it easy to do and only I am struggling?
How do I put aside my own pain, loss, devastation, to focus on your pain, loss, and devastation?
It's not that I do not care about your baby, but must I do it while I'm trying to hold my own child's blood in his body, hand over the wound, blood spilling out, looking in his eyes ... knowing no one cares about his life ... no one but me ... how can I?
Am I even in any position to do so, given my own emotional, physical and mental trauma.
Where has the care been for all of my children that have died and are dying?
Where are the people, marching, petitioning, fighting for my children?
I want to care with my whole heart ... but how?
How much heart does one have to give, when that same heart is already broken.
What of self-preservation, is it real, what is the mechanism to ignore it?
What is one to do. Am I being selfish.
How do you psychologically manage this.
Is it all meant to be this way, knowing in advance this challenge would be present.
Is it a divide and conquer campaign (put in place since the invent of racism) to defeat us all.
If anyone has answers, please share.
We have to remember that their true focus is on making sure the US remains a majority White nation. If you look at their actions through that lens, you will see why they are so focused on certain issues like abortion (white women are not having enough babies) and immigration (Too many people of color entering the country). The true danger to White supremacy is population demographics. If it changes enough, then another group will have the numbers to create a majority. They deathly fear that those who end up outnumbering them will do to them, what they have done to others.
So in the end, though I know most of the time other ethnic groups rarely come to our aid, I still feel the need to make sure that I give some aid to them. We have to look at the whole picture, and understand that keeping a present buffer between us and the White Supremacists in power in the long run works to our benefit until we can eject them out of power.
