Ground Water Sky
Written by: Victor E. Moseley
Founding Statement: There comes a precious moment in time that all life drops the ignorance of superiority. When the ground realizes it needs the water to survive. The tree realizes it needs the ground to hold it in place. The air realizes it needs the tree to replenish the oxygen it desperately needs to create the weather patterns that climatizes the Earth. Responsibilities are intertwined because a living planet depends on every element to function according to its purpose.
Mammals pretend that they’re more sophisticated than any living breathing planet, and thus conclude that liberties can be taken with all three essential elements. The ignorance of mammals I’m afraid is a contradiction of their celebrated intelligence. Intelligence that informs mammals they aren’t required to be simple creatures that fulfill their purpose, but creatures that can take actions harmful to the elements that are dedicated to their stated purpose. Mammals believe such devotion constrains their freedom to live as they please.
This revelation and the antagonistic approach mammals have decided upon against the elements will be simplified in this digital periodical. All the talk of unity will be broken down into useful parts that will be easy to understand and implement. Know this my fellow mammals, all forms of life owe it to each other to care for one another. It’s just that mammals have enjoyed the echo chamber of approval from other mammals because the elements never raised their voice. We now know for certain the elements do have a voice, and they have registered their collective disapproval of the selfish nature of mammals…
Issue 11: On a Wayward Journey?
Skills gained as a result of slavery? Skills gained as a result of brutality? Skills gained as a result of the White ‘Massa’? This is no time for laughter. It is a time to honor the resilience of African slaves and their descendants in America. I will start with the point I’m making and explain it afterwards.
So, the defiance, the gumption, the audacity of African slaves to not just retain their humanity, but keep practicing it under unspeakable cruelty is because of their heritage and strength of fidelity to African principles. Africans and their descendants under slavery knew who they were long before they were enslaved. Africans and their descendants under slavery never sought validation under the White ‘Massa’. In conclusion African Americans descending from African slaves know where they come from and need not look to ‘Republican White or Republican Hispanic or Republican traitorous Black Men and Women’ to recount, recite or revise our history to us. We already know what happened to our ancestors, and we will never distort, dishonor or degrade their legacy given to all of us!
What did Maya Angelo say? ‘When someone shows you who they are believe them the first time’. It can be angering to listen to Republicans and their ilk try their damned best to distort all the atrocities committed by White people in furtherance of slavery in America. What I don’t get is why? Why do some Black people and seemingly a large swath of Hispanics don’t believe them? Do you really think that Republicans are ‘joking around’ when they spit in the face of their history against you?
Do you really believe that these Lost Cause White Christian Nationalist Republicans want to bring you into their party their ‘cause’ as equal members? Oh, sorry, forgive me. They want to bring Blacks, Hispanics and anyone else they deem inferior to them in as subjugates. We are ‘Spirits in the Material World’ indeed.
Hopefully the 2 Black Republicans were duped, yes I’m being kind, but I’m still not offering redemption. It is not surprising to me to see Black folks making fools of themselves for White people. What I don’t get again is why? For what purpose in furtherance of what goal? What were these 2 Black Republicans offered to betray their ancestors? I just need to know why!
If I were one of the citizens of Florida I would ask Governor Ron DeSantis why he is doing this? Why is he perverting the truth of our ancestral Black History in America? Furthermore, why does he hate Florida so much? Does he not understand that Florida will be the ‘punchline’ of jokes for decades if he doesn’t rescind his perversion of Black history? Honestly, I don’t think the Governor of Florida will stop there. I believe wholeheartedly Math will be his next target. I can’t wait to see 9 + 9 = 2 in soon to come revised Math books.
Oh, don’t believe me? Let me remind you of what Republicans have already done. Roe vs. Wade rescinded. So-called Christians can now discriminate according to the U.S. Supreme Court. Governor Abbott of Texas serving up atrocities like an ordinary restaurant menu. Donald Trump praising a lunatic wanna be dictator in Russia as a genius. Auburn University racist former football coach placing a halt to America’s military readiness. Teachers have to stand in front of their class and flat out lie about American History. Women can’t practice their healthcare without fear of political interference. LGBTQ+ and transgender people have to again hide in the shadows for fear of death. Should I go on?
All this lashing out by Republicans is because they are ‘upset’ that they no longer can own the ‘airwaves’ unchallenged. Remember ‘darkened’ O.J. Simpson? Remember every major network newscast filled with images of negative stories about Black people? All those moves are now countered by truthful voices of ‘I beg to differ sir’. I don’t like Fox News, but the major television networks created Fox News because they themselves were biased against the truth!
You see that’s what happens when technology gives people whose voices were never ‘amplified’ the chance to correct the record. The chance to present a totally ‘different’ point of view. In my assessment everybody in America is to blame for the ‘period’ we are in now. What ‘period’ is that you say?
The ‘period’ of truth telling long suppressed can never be so again. Welcome to the ‘age’ of innocence! Now no voice will be silenced by those voices yelling over the top of them drowning them out. Our ‘journey’ has a course now. We know how to respond to distortion. The message is ready. Is there a channel open?
Channel open sir!
