Black men, be afraid. Be very afraid.
Today’s patterns of black profiling are similar to the annulation of 17 million Jews in Europe. Today’s patterns of bigotry and hatred mirror the purification of the Cambodia Khmer Rouge against 2.5 million dead civilians. Todays pattern of cultural persecution is similar to the Bangladeshi war crimes where 3 million people were killed because of how they voted.
This has also been a painful week of genocide for Americans black citizens. The ongoing saga of African-Americans in the United States draws a direct comparison to the extermination of blacks in Nazi Germany. The sterilization, isolation, incarceration, medical experimentations, brutal torture, segregation and sexual abuse of blacks in Germany follow the same pattern of black genocide in America. This nationalistic trend of black abuse is defined as white ethnocentrism by the United Nations.
The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was adopted by the United Nations in 1948 as a response to the extermination of and Germany’s Final Solution for Gypsies, Jews, and Africans. It took American politicians nearly 44 years to sign the genocide declaration. Why? Because Americans maltreatment of its black citizens was a hypocritical shocking testament of ethnic cleansing as viewed by European nations.
The Civil Rights Congress, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the National Negro Congress separately petitioned the United Nations to act upon the many racist instances of lynching, incarceration and segregation in the United States. After each rejection, the presenters included more government statistics and examples of an established pattern of legal discrimination, and systematic inequalities in the health and quality of life for African-Americans. The petition argued that the US government is both complicit with and responsible for black genocide.
More today then yesterday:
Black men must realize that ethnic cleansing has taken many forms in this country. From the high rate of black infant mortality to the high number of black seniors dying from preventable illnesses. From the high number of incarcerated blacks to the high number of blacks on death row; from the high ratio of blacks who die from treatable tumors to the high number of blacks that die from prostrate, bone, lung and breast cancer; From the high number of blacks who die from misdiagnosed high blood pressure to the high number of blacks who die from preventable strokes and heart disease.
These acts are examples of what the United Nations considered to be an attempt to purposely deny a race the right to exist by killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life that is calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part. Even today, Americans have become culturally conditioned to marginalize black people as second-class citizens.
It is apparent from these unorganized documented patterns of extermination, that black men are endangered of becoming destroyed. Currently, police racially profile one in four black men. Every 28 hours, a black man is either beaten or shot by a police officer in America. With stand your ground laws in 24 states; the number of blacks who are physically abused or murdered by cowboy civilians is expected to multiply every hour. In these same states, there has been a 360 percent increase in private citizens harassing black males without legal authority. Innocent blacks profiled, mistreated, and abused by civilians in jobs, housing, and healthcare mirrors the indiscriminate assassinations by Hitler’s Nazi brown shirts.
This categorization was giving trigger-happy racists a call to arms. Many gun stores in white communities reported an increase in weapon sales. Many civic gun license departments also saw an increase in concealed weapon permit applications. Because the court deemed that you know longer need a badge to kill a black man, every zealot with a gun could validate his or her provoked killing as an act of self-defense.
Just last week, a white woman jumped on a music stage and physically pummeled an old black blues musician. She later said that the musician’s dedication to Trayvon martin offended her. She was defending herself against a verbal discussion of Trayvon Martin’s human rights.. It’s a good thing she did not have a gun. The idea of universal suspicion without individual evidence is what black men in America must constantly fight. Yet this example is evidence that a white woman with a purse may no longer clutch her purse from a black man passing her by on the sidewalk. Without any evidence, her learned behavior says that a black man will undoubtedly steal her purse without provocation. And with this mindset she will use her gun to defend herself against an imaginary threat.
The same applies to that familiar racist sound of a white families car door locking as a black man walking his dog passes by. The same stereotyped suspension will encourage the car driver to perform a racially motivated action because of what he stereotypes as predictable behavior for a car jacking. Instead of the usual click of a car door locking, the victim will hear the sound of a gun’s hammer clicking before the bullet is fired at an unsuspecting pedestrian.
When Emmitt Till and Medgar Evers bodies were mutilated and killed under the ruse of civilian justice, it is the same reason a black man can be killed today. This masochistic cycle is steamrolled by Tea-Party citizens, but is inflamed by new conservative politicians who rebranded racism with the same rude and obnoxious behavior of the old south. In the new South, an innocent Trayvon Martin was killed under the ruse of vigilante justice.
Another judicial court proclaimed the innocence of another killer of black men is allowed to go free. This ongoing judicial consent to murder black men has given legal license for bigots to indiscriminately kill any black man. The court sanctioned murders of black men by police and civilians have triggered a wave of nationalist vigor among American’s white homogenous population. A spiral of escalating racism might be set in motion that will lead to various levels and forms of institutional discrimination against blacks.
The mass media and government aristocrats hide the high-intensity of black-white conflicts in America. The 400-year American fractionalization between whites and blacks has been a significant predictor of current ethnic conflicts. Political scientists assembled a large dataset that concludes American blacks are at risk of being exterminated because of government policies and the complex coalitions of the powerful white elite.
Black repression and intimidation has escalated into a nationalist apparatus forming all modes of bigotry and hate. The political mobilization of right wing organizations has championed the degradation of blacks as a brand of American theology and patriotism. Business lobbyists and high-level politicians oppose any federal support for blacks and reject any level of power sharing with black politicians or black constituents. Corporate powers have considered the election of a black president a reason to marginalize the economic and political power of black citizens into a powerless culture.
The Supreme Court has helped to exploit the unpopularity of blacks in hopes of restoring the ethnocratic regime of states rights to discriminate and segregate. Political elites have mobilized their members and forged corporate alliances based on ethnic similarity. The satisfactory arrangement with different ethnic groups to discriminate is directed by the total exclusion of blacks into an inferior culture of any ethnic group. While the right wing media tried to portray the murderer as a model minority, they forget that black exclusion by other ethnic groups is considered to be an important criterion for citizenship.
These new dynamics highlight a need for a new direction of liberation activism. The social and political opposition to policies designed to narrow and eliminate racial inequalities must be stopped.
The state of race relations in this country is horrendous. It will take more then a conversation about race to discrimination in America.
