For All Points-Of-The-View.
THE SLAVE TRADE
IS A MOST PAINFUL AND POIGNANT PART OF WORLD HISTORY,
YET THE PEOPLE WHO SUFFERED AND DIED
HAVE NO REMEDY TO END THE CAPTIVITY OF THEIR PROGENY!
CNN spotlighted Kamala Harris, Senator of California regarding feelings about Reparations. In the interview she said, she would not give Black people money. Does this former prosecutor understand that Reparations is for the CRIME against Blacks who were kidnapped from the shores of Africa and forced to leave out of the Elmina Castle – out of the “Door of no Return” to board ships that took them into the “Four Corners of the Earth” into a Slave Trade? This enslavement was specifically in place to make Europeans wealthy and prosperous off the backs, blood, sweat, and tears of Slaves and their descendants from one generation to another for hundreds of years. To date, this matter has not been resolved in the governments that promoted this crime against human beings.
Kamala Harris, like Clarence Thomas, and Barack Obama are the worst to represent descendants of Slaves in government, in court, or in life. Harris’ own words prove her to be joined with White Supremacists who sustain suppression of descendants of Slaves. Obama did not say that he would not give Blacks money. He said, “I’m not the president of Black America”. For good reason he never came close to using these words while campaigning for the presidency of the United States.
Harris said she won’t give Black People money, but as a prosecutor she knew how and when to secure money for herself and with whom to be lenient. And it wasn’t Blacks, for she came to fame being hard-nosed on Blacks to please the powers-that-be. Unfortunately for descendants of Slaves this is how Blacks stay in government, term-after-term doing absolutely nothing to make us FREE or to bring us out of the Ghetto, impoverishment, and inferior schools.
We have never suffered sufficiently in this American society. The FBI put drugs in Black neighborhoods to ensure a Ghetto of brain-dead descendants of Slaves. Police left an unlocked boxcar full of guns in our neighborhood to ensure that the Blacks would commit a crime, get incarcerated, and kill other Blacks. Thus, descendants of Slaves are using and dealing in drugs, killing each other, and attending inferior schools only to dropout in the teenage years when an education is most dire for their young lives. Neither do descendants of Slaves have a chance in Big Business. Those who do have degrees face a glass ceiling that is a prohibition for Blacks moving up the ladder in this White Supremacist nation. For this injustice Reparations must be paid to descendants of Slaves.
Native Americans received Reparations, Japanese received Reparations, and the US government assisted the White Jews in obtaining Reparations from Germany. So why is Kamala Harris so dead set against giving Reparations to descendants of Slaves when the Holocaust of the Slave Trade lasted for hundreds of years even unto this present captivity. Do not descendants of Slaves deserve restitution for all that we have lost during these horrific years in another man’s land: liberty, our identity, language, and country of origin. And lest we forget, our forebears were denied an education but were ironically forced to believe in the JC, man-god, of the ENSLAVERS, which is the most ridiculous thing ever heard of.
Our forefathers were never paid for this injustice and persecution and never paid for their back-breaking grueling labor forced upon them in the Plantation Mansion and for clearing wooded areas and brush for farming and harvesting cotton, cane, and other produce to sustain healthy Enslavers and their families. How can White America disregard the Slave labor that was for their prosperity – Slave labor that enabled their country to rise into a wealthy United States of America at the expense of a long and hard Slave Trade in human beings?
Kamala Harris is experienced in prosecution and justice being served for all manner of crimes, but it would appear that this cruel Slave Trade is not slated for justice to be served. Of all people in government Harris should be the one leading the way in the attainment of Reparations. But she is like the Whites who do not see color but yet are aware of the injustices that prevail against descendants of Slaves but do nothing to end the oppression of this group that has always suffered the most.
Those who serve in Congress speak the same rhetoric about injustice, the poor, medical insurance and free education for all, every campaign - even higher wages and upgrading the infrastructure. But unfortunately descendants of Slaves naively eat this stuff up. And they keep voting for these candidates every single election, be it for president or for Congress and nothing changes one iota. Impoverishment, inequality, racism, discrimination, and great oppression continue to hurt descendants of Slaves, but who cares - certainly not Kamala Harris. She, like others, no doubt acts for the White Privileged who fall on hard times to work in their favor, for I know nothing she has done for descendants of Slaves. She talks a good game, but her actions, like most campaigners, are void.
In that our forebears were forcibly brought to these shores, Descendants of Slaves need a voice and a representative to speak in our favor. We need Kamala Harris to pursue charges and litigation for the criminal acts against Slaves and their descendants. We need Reparations for the deaths of the Slaves at the hands of Enslavers, for maiming, beatings, for the free labor, and lawful restraining of millions of Black Slaves who were kept in animal-like conditions in summer and in winter without proper clothing, without shoes, and without proper nutritious foods for sustenance given the day-to-day hard labor forced upon them.
How is it that Harris cannot understand that the Slaves who went through the Elmina Castle doors of no return endured Hell on the “Middle Passage” where they had to live in the hold of ships in their own vomit and excrement. Upon getting to the shores of America they had to sport yokes and chains on their ankles. Then, those who survived the voyage of Hell were forced to walk for thousands of miles to their unwanted livelihoods and oftentimes from that location to other places many miles away.
On the plantations the Slaves were made to breed in order that these babies would grow up and also be Slaves for the Enslavers, their Masters. The children born of Slaves, as well as husbands and wives were mercilessly sold off to other Enslavers, never to be seen again. Yet, Kamala Harris cannot see that there must be justice served for this heinous Slave Trade. Years ago a White lady who was burned by her McDonald’s coffee sued and won $500,000. To say that descendants of Slaves do not deserve Reparations for this kidnapping, enslavement, free labor, death, and misery from watching their children suffer and knowing that they will never be FREE is evil and unfair.
Harris is on record saying, “I believe that a child going without an education is a crime”. That is just another reason why Reparations is due, for Slaves were denied an education. And as a result, for hundreds of years they grew old knowing nothing about themselves, the academics, or the world, as they and their children were left in gross darkness. Hence, this is indeed a crime for which Reparations is due.
Let me be clear; descendants of Slaves are owed the HUMAN RIGHT to be FREE of this Slave State that inhibits self-determination and keeps us in a limbo that prevents economic growth, social justice, and prosperity for descendants of Slaves. We want for our children the opportunity to pursue happiness and to govern themselves. We want to leave behind this White Supremacy that has been the very force that has kept us subjugated and second-class citizens.
Our “Code” is our “Priority”, which is to establish better lives for our progeny in order that they become the privileged in the world to end Third-World suffering. Furthermore, we want to rise above being labeled bywords such as Blacks, African Americans and descendants of Slaves. We are all from many great nations of Peoples and some of us, like myself, are proved to be descended from the Biblical Israelites, as per “Thus Saith the LORD GOD” of Israel. It was HE that cast us into this vicious Slave Trade for our forefathers forsaking HIM for false gods.
“Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand.
“And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.
“Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.
“The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
“And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone. And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:” Deuteronomy 28:32,37,41,49,64,6
Nevertheless, HE has also PROMISED to Deliver us out of the hands of those who hold us captive:
“The LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.” Deuteronomy 30:3
“Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.” Jeremiah 31:10,11
“For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.” Jeremiah 32:42
“…the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them. And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid.” Ezekiel 34:27,28
“Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.” Zephaniah 3:19,20
“For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure,” Jeremiah 30:11
THANK GOD ALMIGHTY
FOR THEN WE WILL AT LAST BE FREE!
It is painful even to think that our children will forever be subjects in this racist country, hence, without further delay, this government that promoted the Slave Trade must pay Reparations to descendants of Slaves. Whites grew to be the wealthiest nations to rule this Earth off the free labor of Slaves. Now, we want our FREEDOM and liberty to grow and fulfill our own dreams of becoming our own rulers, governors, and leaders, and more importantly to worship Our Own GOD – the CREATOR GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Ex.3:15).
Not all descendants of Slaves choose to leave out of this US captivity. They are satisfied with the status quo. However, those who have the great desire to Exodus must have Reparations for our resettlement, and we require the government to expedite our emigration, as it was the United States that ended our freedom and that brought us to these shores, albeit, against our will.
If people and candidates were serious about serving justice for the Slave Trade and not just as a means to gain votes, they would have worked towards discussing Reparations and our FREEDOM before starting their campaigns. And H.R. 40 would not be lying dormant somewhere in the archives.
It may not be realistic, as Harris said, “to change (the US) criminal justice policy”, but descendants of Slaves have waited far too long for equal rights that will never manifest in this country of White Privilege. This American Dream, Pursuit of Happiness, and Values that the powers-that-be tout in these United States sound good and look good on paper, but in reality, these entities have never existed in this country for descendants of Slaves.
The truth of the matter is that the US government does nothing to change the racist attitudes of bigots and instill honesty and integrity in the minds and hearts of the powers-that-be and in the people who control government, institutions, and industries. The real concern in America is to keep this country a White Privileged Nation and forbid inclusion and equity for non-Whites. President Trump did not stutter when he said that he wants to see people coming to America from Norway – not “shithole countries”, and his words spoke volumes for his base.
The government responsible for bringing Black Slaves to America must now give descendants of Slaves our HUMAN RIGHT to be FREE of this captivity. Descendants of Slaves want to take control of our own lives, which has not happened since the start of the Slave Trade. Racism and White Supremacy have extinguished our ability to prosper and secure a Voice or a Representative for our plight in this country that deems itself a “Sweet Land of Liberty”.
The White members of Congress would rather be dead than walk in the shoes of descendants of Slaves. They can watch our suffering and despair but to use their offices and work towards ending our affliction none take the initiative to do.
Kamala Harris should not waste her time campaigning for President of the United States, as her own words are what have caused her to lose the race even before it has gotten started.
