It has been said throughout Black America that Bill Clinton was the first Black President. More than any Democrat before him, Mr. Clinton managed to sweet talk his way into the Black hearts. We accepted him as one of our own. He's a Brotha. More Black Businesses became successful under Bill Clinton's administration than any other. We felt good. We felt safe. And we spent a great deal of money because we felt good and safe. While Bill Clinton failed terribly in other areas - no one hardly noticed because most of his economical strategies worked. Or so they say. Who can tell? What most people don't realize is that the America economy, like the American stock market has everything to do with how people "feel." When people feel good and safe, they spend more money. The economy booms. No rocket science here. The stock market is the same way. In Bush's economy, markets are slower. People are spending less. Because everyone is afraid. The Terrorists will hit any minute now. Folks with money are holding on it, hoping nothing happens. Folks without money are doing everything they can do get it. And anything. But Black people are usually looking for any reason to praise a White person in power anyway. As long as he or she speaks the right words, sings the right song, and goes to the right Churches, we can be seduced into worship and raise of this individual. It might be because we expect a White God to come to save us, it makes perfect sense since the majority of us still worship a White God. Voting is great. Thumbs up for Voting. Exercise your American Citizenship. But what are we voting for? If you're a vegetarian, and the waiter asks you to choose between Beef or Pork, you leave the restaurant. There is no vote. That's just basic common sense. With all our Votes, most Blacks in America are still living successfully below the poverty line. Yet other communities, especially Immigrant communities, can't Vote anyway, and could care less, yet in many cases manage to get things done collectively. The Civil Rights movement introduced the Black mind to the political process of America, in order for us to understand our Human, Civil, and American rights as beings. But everyone is lined up to Vote, and still not having a clue why. So what you can Vote. But you're not "creating" the people you hope to elect. When will we start looking for the Right people, instead of the White people? The process of Voting can only be useful for Blacks in America, if indeed we are "creating" the people who share our self interests. First of all, far too much emphasis is placed on Presidency, when we really should be focused on what's going on at our state and local Government levels. If we were smart as a Nation, we would create a Justice of the Peace for every jurisdiction in Black America, and appoint or "elect" our own officials that deal with local issues that affect us directly. We need Right people, not White people. We've forgotten our tenets. We've forgotten who we should appoint and follow as our Leaders. Those who look after our self interests. We've forgotten our moral code: Maat. We've forgotten our nine cardinal Principles. (1) Right intentions (2) Right thought (3) Right speech (4) Right effort (5) Right action (6) Right living (7) Right reality (8) Right understanding (9) Right wisdom. We worry too much about whether or not this White person is for us, or if this White person is against us. Why is this so important? The most Racist White Man will take your hand if he is falling off a cliff. He will smile at you, hug you and say Thank you. He will praise your name as long as you are still around. It has nothing to do with good. It makes sense to deceive a fool. You helped him survive, you saved his life. His survival, and the entire survival on his Race depends on the fact that you believe he is all powerful, a God and the Ruler of the World. You are a fool for thinking a smile from him changes that. The fight for survival brings blood shed and death. Its a "Race" for Survival. Ironically, we are raised by our parents using the same tactics of Slavery. Some of us still say, how "good" our Mothers have been too us. Despite, the burns, the trips down the stairs, the curling irons, the hangers, the backslaps, the bodyslams. But we love our Mothers. Just like we love White people, despite the Human cruelty. Its seems like an unfair comparison, but its a Real comparison we'll have to deal with. We are programmed to deal with suffering. An abused Cat will still return to its Owner, not just because of love, but survival. The Owner feeds it, cares for it, keeps it safe from outside dangers. But this is because domesticated Cats are broken animals. Programmed for Human interaction. Abuse a Cat in the wild, and they will find your body in different regions throughout the land. We speak about Animal Cruelty about how wrong it is, perhaps because Whites are speaking about how wrong it is. We speak out until we choke on our own saliva. But we will dear to speak about how most Blacks abuse their children. Its this very abuse, that keep us looking for Saviors. Save me White Man, Save me from my crazy Black people, save me from all the Abuse. But we run back to our Mothers forgetting the Abuse. And as Sistah TruetotheCause has told us. "Hurt people Hurt people." But we must realize, we run to White people also, forgetting the abuse. We look for the good in White people, forgetting the Abuse. We fall and stay in love with them, forgetting the abuse. Does a Rape victim heal herself by moving in with her Rapist? Does she look for other Rapists and say, "oh well here's a good one, he looks different than the other Rapists." There's a big wide gap of difference between punishment and abuse. A careful study of African child punishment depicts this. Now....Self Whiteous People are people now in the world who are classifying themselves "White" for Survival to associate themselves with a Race we are "sub-consciously" programmed to believe are in power. We'll have to deal with this also. What we need are Right people. People who understand the mathematics behind right thought and right action. It means knowing when to subtract, and when to add, that's how we come up with a Right Reality. Right people will end Racism in this Country, not White people. Mathematically a "Right" person is positioned to fix a problem. A "Right" person is an Angel, or an Angle, its the same thing, same word- we've only been programmed to read and speak them differently. A Right person fixes a problem as if magic. Because they were "created" for that purpose. Whites are programmed into our minds as Angels. As "Right" people. As the corners, or meeting points between heaven and earth, physical and spiritual. For this reason, we subject ourselves to them. We look to them for guidance. They are Gods, and we who speak against them, are Demons or Devils. But the Devil has been speaking the truth all along. A Right person, is created for the task at hand. With that being understood, is a White person the one who will end Racism, why would he or she end the very system that ensures the survival of their kind and generations to come? That would be like asking Uncle Luke to stop making booty music. Or asking certain Artists to stop making music that degrade Women. Why would they do it, if this is the business that provides their survival? Oh- but there are "good" Rappers out there, that still doesn't change the industry. "Good White people" doesn't change Racism. What changes the system are those who are created and positioned to change the system. The only people on this planet bent on changing the system of Racism in the world are those who are affected directly by it.
