Can someone explain to me how we got here in four months? From March to July it seems that everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. The Coronavirus was supposed to have been something small and insignificant, yet we’re now in July and have lost 130 thousand Americans and counting. The economy is in shambles, unemployment is at an all-time high. Racial tension is at a Civil-War high, BLM Movement vs Systemic Racism, and White supremacy is on display everywhere. Four years ago a famous candidate asked, “What in the hell do you have to lose,” that candidate is now the President,
It really doesn’t matter which Political Party you represent, I think it’s safe to say, we’re in a mess. When we find ourselves fighting over whether we should or shouldn’t wear a face Mask, things are pretty bad. Who would have thought that an American President would be the Drum Major over such a silly fight when he is well aware of the dangers of not wearing a mask.
“I can’t breathe” another year like this could be catastrophic to my health. It seems like I’ve been holding my breath these past few months, apprehensive of what may happen next.
Facts are, Black Americans have been living with that feeling for years. Professor Eddie Glaude Jr. talks about, The Country That Refused To Change. In it, he says, “America’s betrayal of the civil rights movement gave way to urban explosions across the country, declarations of Black Power and interminable debates about the slogan’s meaning”. Meanwhile, Ronald Reagan was giving White Americans justification of their history, their sense of innocence, according to James Baldwin. It’s taken us a long time and a long walk to finally hit close to home.
I have some good news! Whatever happens next, I have faith that it’ll be better than what has already happened. We can’t get any darker than where we’ve been.
Symbolically speaking, America has been pregnant far too long, and now the pain has become excruciating, We all must help deliver THE BIRTH OF A NEW AMERICA. If we do it right, we stand a chance to deliver justice and equality, the understanding that all Black Lives Matter, and more. We can eradicate systemic racism and White privilege, create a new song we all can sing and be proud of. Imagine for the first time all Americans can truly stand proudly and say, “I’m glad to be an American.”
The future is near and 2021 and beyond can be the very best in America. However, if we refuse to change and continue to hold on to the stupidity, we will never experience that bright blue future. Why gamble the future, when we already know what the past has brought us, phrases such as “for Whites only” can truly stay in America’s previous chapters.
There have been so many wonderful words written and spoken about America, THE LAND OF THE FREE AND BRAVE. July fourth is considered INDEPENDECE DAY. The worst thing about all this wonderfulness is that it wasn’t true for Black Americans. The History, the Songs, the Poems, Mottos, Flags and all was written for one race only, Black Americans weren’t considered. So while White Politicians love to quote Freddrick Douglas and Dr. King, they never serve them nor their people. Black Americans were forced to believe in a History of lies which is why we’re in this mess today.
THE BIRTH OF A NEW AMERICA will have some growing pains, but I am hopeful. I believe we are a people of perseverance, faith, and courage. Understanding that everything must be put on the table if we are to grow honesty must be priority.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that” “Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase” “Only darkness can see the stars” “No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for” Our lives begins to end the day we become silent about the things that matter”
If you believe as I do that we are a people of perseverance, faith, and courage then allow that belief to transform into action and vote, donate, sign petitions, educate yourself and protest so that each step…can be a step into THE BIRTH OF A NEW AMERICA.
…Then, we can celebrate OUR GREAT COUNTRY…
