Selma Moment

We all remember the march from Selma Alabama to Montgomery on March 25, 1965. Dr. King told the assembled crowd: "There never was a moment in American history more honorable and more inspiring than the pilgrimage of clergymen and laymen of every race and faith pouring into Selma to face danger at the side of its embattled Negroes". The civil rights movement demonstrated what can be done when determination and righteousness meet. When I watch Eyes on the Prize and other civil rights documentaries, I feel good about the accomplishments of those who marched so everyone in America can be free.

My proud moments quickly soured when I examine the movements of today. Black folks seem to be searching for their Selma Moment. Something which defines them as legitimate Blacks who struggles against the wave of racism lead by Mr. Charlie. Black folks need something which explains the lack of accomplishment and outright failure of Blacks compared to other groups today. Blacks have the highest unemployment rate in America due to our lack of skills and a good education. We have the worst schools in the country which contributes to our high unemployment rate. High crime, incarceration, high school drop out rate... I think you get the picture.

How do we as a people deal with our failure? We invent a Selma Moment. White cops killing Blacks is the Selma Moment of today. It was not long ago that the criminal justice system was our Selma Moment. For a while we were blaming Republicans and the Tea Party for our problems. We actually have Blacks wasting time dealing with this non-issue of White cops killing Blacks and White Liberal Progressives endorsing and approving because it keeps our eyes off the prize. According to the Justice department, about a hundred Blacks are killed by White officers each year. The city of Chicago will see a hundred deaths of Blacks in a good month. Do you see how brainless and mindless it is to make White cops killing Blacks an issue when Blacks are killed by other Blacks 93% of the time.

According to the American Free Press, "Over the past 35 years in America, an estimated 324,000 blacks have been killed at the hands of fellow blacks, proving racist White cops are the least of their worries." So lets examine why and how White cops have become the Selma Moment of today.

Black folks do not want to face the truth that Liberal, Progressive, Democrats, both Black and White, have led Blacks folks to failure land, and rather than face the truth about our poor voting choice, it is easier to blame others i.e. White cops. Democrats have run our schools for seventy plus years and we have nothing but poor results. The average inner city high school graduate is three grade level behind the national average. Why isn't the Democratic party doing something about the plight of Black folks? They need Blacks to suffer to keep our vote. They have no desire to fix anything. Their plan is and will continue to be to keep Blacks struggling to find jobs, to keep Black kids in failing schools so they are unprepared for employment or college and to keep Blacks segregated in distressed area with high crime and drugs.

It's time for Blacks to free ourselves from our oppressor: The Democratic Party.

Join the revolution!
