The STRIPES of Healing
This biweekly newsletter will seek to explain the pain and suffering mainly people of color endure through no fault of their own. The dehumanizing excuses our people always seem to elicit from people in power that make our Christian Brothers and Sisters accept their reasoning as if it was uttered by the Almighty. Lastly what I see with my own eyes begs the question from my conscience. “Are we loving or can we really love our neighbor as ourselves”.
Issue 20: How Many Times Republicans Need to Tell You They Don’t See You?
The CROWN ACT ‘Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural hair’ literally was done to protect the rights of Black, Brown and Colored People to express their individuality in styling their own hair. Just getting the details out of the way first will allow us to tie all of it together in this issue. Meditate on this while you read this. How can another race tell a race they aren’t a member of how to conduct themselves? Hold that thought.
Let me explain to White Men and Women why the hair of Colored people is scripture. 1 Corinthians 11:15 ‘But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering’. ‘Hair is a glory’ Republicans. I know all of you will never understand that given that all of you voted against the ‘bill’ in the U.S. House of Representatives. It is typical for the God thumping Bible Party to profess with their mouths how holy they are when their hearts tell the truth.

White Republican men have wished and for the most part were successful in erasing everything about Black people. Republicans have to be vigilant in their historical effort to erase all that Black people knew from Africa, and what they remembered still needed to be monitored and stamped out when it shows itself. Hence 3/5 a White person. White and Black water fountains everywhere keeps ‘those’ people in line. No sitting at the lunch counter. Go to the back of the bus and if no seats are available a Black person must give up theirs to a White person. How many jellybeans in a jar to vote? Pay a poll tax to vote.
Redline communities to keep Black people from buying or renting homes or apartments. Seize lands for public works projects and pay Black owners a third less a White would get for the same land. Discrimination in hiring practices for both public and private jobs. Police neighborhoods in different ways when those needing help are Black or White. Police fear Black people more than they fear White people and this is why that mentality is dangerous. James 1:8 ‘A double minded man is unstable in all his ways’.
Imagine that by what authority White people believe they have the right to tell Black people how to style their hair? Are you still meditating? Let’s continue then with our efforts to reveal the overt ways White people brood and conspire to use authority I believe from Satan to oppress Black people. I mean they did and still go to their churches oblivious to all the atrocities committed in their names to keep White people in power. Why stop now? Republicans are good at oppression, so why stop what’s working?
White people don’t like the way Black people dress. White people don’t like the way Black people greet, mingle and interact with friends and family. They say, ‘Black people get too loud when they gather together’. Black people are gaining in wealth and that needs to be reined in before they taste more freedom than they should be allowed. White people should harass Black people when they go shopping by calling the police on them because the police will automatically believe Whites over Blacks. Black people renting houses need to have the police called on them because as a White person I get to say who looks suspicious or not.
Black people can’t tell me to follow the rules to leash my dog in public, so I’ll call the police and use the White woman damsel in distress with a ‘fear of a Black man’ enhancement to make them hurry. Why do Black people vote Republican when all I’ve clearly written has happened and will continue to happen to Black people. Republicans will always have the mentality that says everybody will conform, bend, cow tow, comply and obey my ideas of normality. I’m the White Republican man and you’re going to obey me, or I will break your will.
Republicans say, I’m going to deny you the honor of God by denying you the right to worship God as you please thus bomb Black churches. Sorry the times have changed. Now I’m going to come in and shoot up your members and defile your churches. Republicans say, I’m going to deny you the honor of God by denying you the right to be educated. Bomb your Historic Black Colleges and Universities.
That’s why I characterized White and Republican as the same because whether you knowingly or unknowingly White people benefit from the hatred the Republican Party has against Black people. That’s why most White people and all Republicans will never understand that whatever mandates you decide Black people should follow will never be accepted by us! What part of Black culture is acceptable to White people? White people don’t get to tell Black and Colored people how to conduct their lives!
Look don’t get me wrong. I’m not here to shatter hundreds of years of indoctrination why White people don’t understand why they’re in the wrong here. I’m writing this so those Black people and Colored people know that Republicans think very little of you. Republicans skin and grin facing you, but snarl and gnash their teeth at you behind your back. Do you get it now Republicans and White people? No matter how hard you try to you cannot erase what makes Black and Colored people unique. I won’t say stop trying because that would make me sound naïve because you’re not going to stop coming after us.
I will say this. Controlling the flow of information completely is no longer in your sole possession. I am a Black man, and I will always call it as it is. Watch me.
