I am no longer upset with our people as I once was. I have come to understand hypocrisy on a very deep level. There was a side of me that sincerely thought that our people in this country would be the "one people" who would keep things real...considering all that we have been through and the struggle that we've gone through to re-learn ourselves. I even got over the religion thing because I understood the power of belief in the face of not knowing. Like my ex wife. I never got over the idea of someone pissing in my face and then telling me that it's rain. This Rosa Parks thing has kind of pissed me off a little. It's common knowledge that she was not the first to deny a seat to YT people. There were two before her...so why are we allowing the lie about her to flourish. Is it because she had a job and the other didn't? Is it because she was light skinned and the others were not. Is it because she was a member of the NAACP and the other were not? Is it because she had a queeky clean record and the others didn't? A lie is a lie...point blank!!! So in others words, we are now at a point where we are willing to support, promote and allow this lie to be taught to our children because "somewhere in our warped mentality" the other sisters were not WORTHY???? Is this what we are saying? I'm not asking, I'm saying that this is exactly what we're saying! The lie is so great that Rosa is now in the white house and got a military burial...did I get that right?? Are we HYPOCRITES on the highest order or what!?? Is this what we have come down to??? Have we really reached the point where we can't even tell the truth about our own selves to our own people??
