NOW THE TIME HAS COME FOR THIS NATION TO FULFILL ITS PROMISE
August 3, 2015 article Race in America: Meaningful Equality Remains a Distant Dream…by Abdul N. Rad, the NGO Representative to the United Nations Department of Public Information:
“The position of the negro today in America is the tragic but inevitable consequence of centuries of unequal treatment. Measured by any benchmark of comfort or achievement, meaningful equality remains a distant dream for the negro.” - Justice Thurgood Marshall, Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, 438 U.S. 265 (1978)
Neither the end of slavery in the middle of the 19th century nor the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s-70s heralded long fought for and awaited equality for the people this country formerly enslaved. Nor did they bring an end to racism in America. This truth exists along with the seemingly contradictory fact that Americans have twice elected a black man as President. Because of that, many ask, how can anyone possibly believe that racism still exists in America - we have a black President!
Notwithstanding President Obama’s election and re-election this year sadly has underscored the truth that racism is alive and well in America. Most prominent in terms of visibility have been the tragic deaths of mostly young black men at the hands of the police, largely due, many believe, to continued racial profiling - and continuing racism. The tragic deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner are but two illustrations.
We return again to the question of how these events can occur, and be caused by, continuing racism in this country, when a twice elected black president holds America’s highest office. The refusal to accept that racism exists in every-day American society will only continue to perpetuate the unfair treatment. The first step in any recovery or healing process is acknowledging - that there is a problem. It is hard to cure an illness if you are not aware that it exists; it is even more difficult when you are denying its existence altogether.
A commonly held belief prior to the Civil Rights movement was that racism was more prevalent in the south than in the north. Although this belief may have emerged as a result of the seemingly more direct and forthright racism in the south, this alone should not render the belief that racism was or still is non-existent in the north. Rather, the racism in the north was and remains more obscure, and arguably a more dangerous form because of the perception by many that the north is for the most part free of racism. Rather, as Justice Thurgood Marshall sagely understood, “the racism of our society has been so pervasive that none, regardless of wealth or position, has managed to escape its impact.”
In reality, the civil rights movement transformed overt racism into a more invidious form, something which has been interlaced into our pre-conceived notions. One of a million examples: a white female practically (more often than not) automatically clutches her pocketbook or purse more tightly when a man of color is in the vicinity, in comparison to a white male. Or, when a store owner/worker hover over black customers believing they are more likely than whites to steal.
Justice Thurgood Marshall, the lawyer who argued and won the legal battle for racial integration of schools in Brown v. Board of Education (1954) and later became the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, made a similar argument in one of his brilliantly-crafted dissents. In his dissenting opinion in Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, a case that questioned the constitutionality of affirmative action, Marshall outlined the history of blacks. He started his dissent in a manner unlike most judicial opinions. Rather, with great emotion and the evidence of history backing up his stirring dissent, he began as follows:
“Three hundred and fifty years ago, the Negro was dragged to this country in chains to be sold into slavery... the slave was deprived of all legal rights. It was unlawful to teach him to read; he could be sold away from his family and friends at the whim of his master; and killing or maiming him was not a crime.”
He argued forcefully that despite the purported end of slavery following the civil war, it was then replaced by the Jim Crow laws that continued the shameful and shameless notion that blacks are inferior to whites. Those laws were numerous and grew rather than decreased over time. Whether it was segregated schools, the state’s ability to forbid a person of color to marry a white person, or separate facilities for whites and blacks, Jim Crow laws continued to reflect the underlying rationale of slavery - that black people were inferior to whites.
The passing of the 13th Amendment in 1865 marked the end of slavery in America - not the start of equality. So we return to the question many seem to believe is already answered: does racism still exist in America? Unfortunately, and unquestionably, the answer is “yes.” Are we making progress? “yes.” But there is so much yet to be accomplished, so many wrongs to be righted, so many inequalities to be removed.
Personally, I hope that we will one day reside in a society which has unshackled itself from its centuries of racial oppression and inequality. However, centuries of oppression and second-class treatment cannot merely be washed away with the passing of a few acts of legislation nor the removal of the remnants of past segregation. The denial by such a large demographic of the continued existence of racism will only further inhibit our society and restrain it from moving forward. In order for some form of progress to occur, we must each do our part and tend to this wound which was created at the inception of our country.
There is no question that to finally eliminate racism, we as a society must first acknowledge, not deny, that it continues to exist. Then make its elimination from the very soul of our country. Unless and until that is done, the injustices which so many in our society suffer will continue to flourish, leaving a blemish on the country that claims to be a shining model of freedom.
"There is nothing to which prejudice is not equal in the way of perverting the truth and inflaming the passion of men. It represents an invidious social tragedy, a vast and regrettable waste of precious human potential."
Now the time has come for this nation to fulfill its promise…
He who will intellectually lay down his life for his country is a man whom it is not in human nature to despise.
President-elect Donald J. Trump is such a man. A man who is fearless, a man who loves his country…America. A man who loves the American people. A man who cares about the American People that he has vowed to represent.
‘We the People,’ the American people must give President-elect Donald J. Trump our unified and our untiring help-effort and support in order for him to fulfill his prophecy to Make America Great Again.
God Bless President-elect Donald J. Trump
God Bless President Donald J. Trump
Donald J. Trump, an outsider, a non-politician, was the only candidate brave enough, courageous enough and bold enough to attack the cause…the system…the evil, corrupt, rigged, sexist and racist system from which our problems emanate, while seeking a cure for the disease, rather than attacking and treating the effects of the disease as the problem. Trump says, “We will create a whole new system and we will tear this corrupt, rigged system apart. I want to make America great again…America First!!!”
Those are cosmic words…that give ‘We the People,’ a divine promise. God has blessed Donald J. Trump with the presidency and God has blessed ‘We the People,’ with President-elect Trump’s leadership.
WORKING TOGETHER WORKS!!!
Never before in the history of American freedom has this miraculous, glorious, A November to Remember presidential election message been so profoundly sent to friend and foe alike; that with faith in God, we have recaptured the spirit of Liberty and Freedom echoed by our Founding Fathers in action and deed. What time is it? This is America’s time! Under President-elect Trump’s leadership this will be America’s zeitgeist!
This is the reason why the corrupt, rigged, sexist and racist system feels so ungodly threatened. This is the reason the evil, corrupt rigged system has declared war on the will of ‘We the People,’ and on President-elect Donald J. Trump. Every evil, devious and deceitful guise of the multi-faceted system is in play… with the mission being to stop and destroy President-elect Donald J. Trump by any and all evil and foul means available, known and unknown to man.
Thus, Jill Stein is a pawn, and is unwittingly being used. This is another method of the system’s formidable power. By using Jill Stein as a scam, a tool, to open up a Pandora’s Box in order to overturn President-elect Donald J. Trump’s election as the 45th President of the United States of America. Thus, giving him the true power to exercise in action the fulfillment of his verbal assault against the evil, corrupt, rigged, sexist and racist system of white supremacy and control.
The evil corrupt, rigged system is going to fight against Trump and the will of ‘We the People,’ on all levels of life; attitudes, beliefs, behavior, race, gender, color, institution, legal, religious, economic and political. Thus unwittingly and wittingly using Jill Stein, Hillary Clinton and the elite Democratic leaders and Republican leaders who refuse to accept the will of the voters. They will become instigators, agitators, motivators, inspiring all anti-Trump and all anti-will of ‘We the People,’ to come together, organizing people to take to the streets to protest and demonstrate in order to express their discontent with the status quo, hoping to overturn the results of Trump’s election by a process that Hillary called “HORRIFYING” according to the New York Times.
GOD FORBID THAT THIS JILL STEIN SCAM VOTE RECOUNT FRAUD DOESN’T RESULT IN BODILY HARM TO ANY OF OUR FELLOW AMERICANS OR RESULT IN CAUSING THE SUPREME SACRAFICE OF OUR FELLOW AMERICANS…IF IT DOES THE NAME OF JILL STEIN, TEAM HILLARY ELITES WILL BE MORIALLY RESPONSIBLE AND MORALLY TO BLAME FOR SUCH A CATASTROPHY!!!
As reported by the N. Y. Times, Mr. Trump insisted, without offering evidence that the general election has been rigged against him, and he twice refused to say that he would accept its result.
“I will look at it at the time.” Mr. Trump said, “I will keep you in suspense.”
That’s horrifying,” Mrs. Clinton replied. “Let’s be clear about what he is saying and what that means. He is denigrating – he is talking down our democracy and I am appalled that someone, who is the nominee of one of our two major parties, would take that position.”
Mrs. Clinton then ticked off a number of times he had deemed a system rigged when he suffered a setback, noting he had even called the Emmy Awards fixed when his show, “The Apprentice,” was passed over. “It’s funny, but it’s also really troubling,” she said. “That is not the way our Democracy works.” As reported by the NY Times.
Now the Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton sympathizers are practicing the horrifying, anti-democracy acts, actions and deeds that they accused Donald J. Trump of doing. THAT IS NOT THE WAY OUR DEMOCRACY WORKS!!!
I totally agree…according to the corrupt system which Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton are a part of…It works selectively and conveniently to suit the purposes of the evil, corrupt, rigged, racist and crooked system, under the guise of a so-called fair elective recount of the votes, just to make sure the voting machines are working accurately.
I love America and I love the American People, every race, creed, color, gender and religion and I love and support Donald J. Trump because he cares about America and the American People.
This Jill Stein scam is being perpetuated without taking into consideration that America is suffering through the highest degree of racism and the deepest racial divide in the history of our nation since that peculiar institution, slavery. Along with an incendiary, super sensitive climate, an environment born by the evil, corrupt, rigged, sexist, racist and crooked system that makes wrong right and right wrong. That considers the white woman inferior and owned property and that which considers African Americans, people of color, inferior and owned property of a white male dominant society. The Left-Outs: the white women and the African Americans, people of color which President-elect Donald J. Trump must and will change to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
However, ‘We the people,’ must not be misled; ‘We the People,’ cannot afford the luxury of fooling ourselves in this highly contentious and deeply seeded hatred situation.
The evil, corrupt rigged system, through this Jill Stein voter recount fraud is inspiring more hatred and racism. Organizing public protestors and agitators, public demonstration of Trump haters that refuse to accept the results and the will of the people. This deeply ingrained hatred, bigotry, prejudice and discrimination could and probably will lead to violence unless ‘We the People,’ find some way to prevent it.
President-elect Donald J. Trump is on his ten-city Thank You Tour, which is a great help toward alleviating some of the hostile tension that is in the atmosphere, while promoting harmony and peace in the environment. He is preaching and promoting unity, solidarity and togetherness among the American People… One America!
The President-elect has a God sent opportunity to become a modern day Framer of the United States Constitution, a modern day Founding Father of the United States Constitution by signing his Bill for the Inclusion of the White Women into the United States Constitution and by signing his Bill of Inclusion of African Americans, People of Color into the United States Constitution.
Signing these Bills of Inclusion for the Left Outs, the white women and the African Americans, People of Color will be a divine act of Liberty in granting them THE LEFT OUTS Freedom. Not only will it be historical, but also it will redefine the principles of liberty of these great United States of America; A new nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men and all women are created equal!!!
I pray to God Almighty, that President-elect Donald Trump accepts this God sent blessing and divine opportunity to do so, by signing the Bills of Inclusion.
American Freedom to me signifies more than just words. It also symbolizes the best in humanism, the best in mankind, the best in egalitarianism, the best in choosing the religion of your choice and have that decision respected. The American revolutionary tradition and the custom of Liberty and Freedom developed by the civil war. It is the very essence of Freedom, Liberty, Justice, Equality and Peace, the majestic principles upon which our nation was founded.
However, we boast the self-evident truth while we live and practice, in our daily lives, the self-evident lie.
Such as African Americans, Walter Scott being shot eight times in the back while running away from Officer Michael T. Slager, who was charged with murder…verdict…hung jury; even after Governor Nikki Haley called it outright murder. Also white supremacist Dylan Root goes into a Black Church, church members praying to God with him, and then he shoots and kills nine Black people, confesses to murder and says that he wanted to ignite a race war between white people and black people yet the evil, corrupt, rigged system is trying to find ways to get him off. Even though all he wants to be is a martyr for the cause of white supremacy. He is willing to sacrifice his life for the cause of white supremacy. Plus many more black youths: Travon Martin, Michael Brown, killed with impunity and no consequences.
Now, flip the coin and make Dylan Root black, going into a white church praying and then killing nine white parishioners (white members), America what do you think would happen??? What kind of trial would take place??? Then, take Michael Scott and make him shoot white Officer M. T. Slager eight times in the back as he runs from Mike Scott. America, what do you think the verdict would be and what kind of a trial would take place, if any???
We return again and again and again to the question of how these types of events can keep occurring and be caused by the continuing racism in this country???
The system is the enemy. President-elect Donald J. Trump is anti corrupt rigged system…anti establishment. Now with the help and support of ‘We the People,’ the American people, President-elect Donald J. Trump can and will change the system.
YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW
THE LINGERING SHADOW OF SLAVERY POISONS THE NATION’S MORAL ATMOSPHERE.
We will create a whole new system and we will tear this system apart.” “I want to make America great again.” “America First!!!” President-elect Donald J. Trump
Don’t be misled – ‘WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER’… ‘WORKING TOGETHER WORKS’!!!
Don King Peacemaker…Citizen of the World!!!
“I live for the day that all people will be clothed in dignity.”
“One of the masses from humble beginning’s through life humble existence in the world.”

ACHIEVEMENT AND SUCCESS
