FROM THE GUTTER TO THE PROMISELAND:(POEM)

THE GUTTER IS WHERE I STAND, THE PROMISE LAND IS WHERE I STRIVE TO BE

WITH A MIND FULL OF HOPES AND DREAMS

THAT I WANT TO MAKE REAL AND NOT JUST FANTASY

MY FOREFATHERS MARTIN LUTHER KING JR., MALCOLM X, KWAME NKRUMAH AND JERRY RAWLINGS, DECADES AGO FOUGHT FOR MY PEOPLE AND ME

BUT ALL I SEE IN THE STREETS IS THUGGERY AND GREED

EVEN IF I CAN’T SAVE ALL MY PEOPLE

I WILL MAKE SURE MY FOUR FATHERS DREAMS LIVE THROUGH ME

WE HAVE COME FROM THE SLAVE HOUSE, THE COLONIAL MASTER’S HOUSE, THE CRACKHOUSE AND NOW THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE

AND STILL I GET PROFILED BY COPS AND SECURITY WHEN I LEAVE MY HOUSE

EVEN THOUGH I WORK SMART AND STUDY LIKE AN INTELLECTUAL SPARTAN, YET SOCIETY STILL LOOKS AT ME JUST LIKE ANOTHER TRAYVON MARTIN

JUST LOOKING FOR ANOTHER BLACK MAN TO SHOOT, WALKING WHILE BLACK I GUESS WILL BE THEIR EXCUSE!image

SHOULD “WE THE PEOPLE” OF THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY DEVELOP A MILITIA TO DEFEND OURSELVES AGAINST INSTITUTIONALIZED WHITE SUPREMACY? (BLACK REPORT ESSAY #3)

BY:LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

Should the African-American community consider developing a militia to fight against systematic white supremacy? The question may seem kind of extreme, when you first hear it but not when you study the crimes against humanity inflicted on the African-American community throughout history, from the creation of this nation to now.
The black populace like the white populace obviously have the rights granted to them by the 2nd amendment of the United-States constitution, which states: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” . With that being said, What state or group of people need more security than the African-American people, with the exception of maybe the Palestinian population in Gaza, who are currently suffering in an apartheid state by the Israeli government, several times worst than the South African apartheid of decades ago.

History not only tells an intelligent person what has happened, but how to prepare for what could possibly happen in future and for the African-American people that would mean if we want a black renaissance or a new black wallstreet, we must be ready to defend our rights and freedoms.
In the past whenever there has been a successful black community, it was more often than not destroyed by its white supremacist neighbors, which was the result of not possessing a well-regulated militia to defend their communities. Like the Atlanta race riot of 1906, Greenwood, Tulsa, Oklahoma” Black Wallstreet” (May 31-June 1, 1921, Chicago race riots of 1919, Rosewood massacre of 1923, Washington, D.C race riots of 1919, Knoxville, Tennessee race riots of 1919, New York city draft riot of 1863, and the east St. Louis massacre of 1917. And that is only if you count the African-American community being savagely attacked by their white civilian counterparts and not by government officials and law enforcement officers, who were paid by them with their tax dollars and sworn to protect them, but did the opposite to black people, like the African-Americans, that were led by Martin Luther King Jr. , who got brutality attacked by state and local police, while attempting to register blacks to vote in the freedom March of 1965, in Alabama, or the FBI’S COINTELPRO (COUNTER INTELLIGENCE PROGRAM) the precursor of today’s NSA spying program, which was exposed by NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden. The cointelpro’ s main objective under the supervision of FBI kingpin and racist J. Edgar Hoover was to eliminate the black power movement of the 1960’s, the same way they got rid of Marcus Garvey and the Universal Negro Improvement Association (U.N.I.A) of the 1920’s. They even went as far as to commit illegal acts such as wiretapping MARTIN Luther King, and placed informents in the Nation Of Islam to attempt to find “dirt” on Malcolm X, they even assisted the Chicago PD with the Assassination of Fred Hampton, the deputy chairman of the Illinois chapter of the black panther party.

Of course a lot of things have changed from 1964 to 2014, we have a half-black president, several black billionaires and thousands of black millionaires, but as a collective we are just as poor and vulnerable as we were in the 1960’s. The United States has the largest prison population of any industrialized nation, according to a Washington post article posted on August, 13, 2013, by Elra Klein and Evan Soltas: ” the U.S. prison population is more than 2.4 million. That means more than one out of every 100 American adults is behind bars”. That should not be a surprise to anyone, since the industrialized prison complex is the designated tool to keep the African-American population in check, because race riots are considered too uncivilized and old fashion for today’s white supremacists. The new white supremacist strategy to subdue the African-American community is to use racially bias drug laws like the crack vs. Powder cocaine laws, that have disproportionately harmed the black community more than the white community, by giving low-income blacks harsher sentences than their white counterparts. Another racist discriminating tactic being used against African-Americans and also Hispanics on the east coast, in states like New York have” stop and frisk” laws that violate the United States constitution rights of mostly African-American and Hispanics. In the Washington post article titled “Florida town cracks down on sagging pants problem” by Sarah Ferris, she writes: ” Ocala, a town in central Florida, approved an ordinance this week that tightens the belt for anyone on city-owned property such as sidewalks, parks and pools. Violators could be forced to pay $500 or face jailtime of six months”, and other “cities across the country- including New Orleans, Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, Miami and Jacksonville, Fla-have taken steps to crackdown on the baggy pants problem. ” Yet no government officials are passing laws to stop middle and upper-class white women from wearing skirts so short you can see their butt cheeks or women that wear Capri workout tights, that are so tight you can see every curve on their body. Even today people like author and activist Holly Kearl, are trying to get “street harassment laws”, which pretty much make it illegal to go up to a woman and call her beautiful, and in some of the propaganda videos and photos, they seem to be profiling once again African-American men, and are using this “street harassment” just as another tool to feed the prison industrial complex.

Well, at least the African-American community, being American citizens have the “freedom to assembly” giving to them by the first amendment, which states: ” congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. ” But unlike the well armed militias that occupied the Bundy ranch to support white supremacist Cliven Bundy , who even pointed guns at federal government law enforcement , for a man who refused to pay his taxes to the federal government and allowed his cattle to graze on land he did not own, or the right-wing very conservative and many may consider racist teaparty protesters , who were also well-armed and therefore left alone by law enforcement officials and allowed to protest. African-Americans on the other hand when we only try to exercise our first amendment right, we are often met with fierce aggression, like the occupy Oakland protesters, in an article posted on the Guardian.com on July 3, 2013, Eoin Reynolds writes: “Occupy Oakland protesters awarded $1m over police violence during arrests”. What is currently going on in Ferguson, Missouri is several times more severe than the occupy movement, when it comes to police brutality on protesters. In fact the protest of the unlawful killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, who had just enrolled in college, who was gunned down like a rabid dog in the streets, by a suspected white supremacist cop , officer Darren Wilson, did not even get violent until police, with military equipment given to them by the United States government, disrupted mostly peaceful protesters with tear gas and non-lethal weapons and decided to occupy Ferguson, Missouri like the Israeli’s occupy Gaza.

So I will leave with this parting question, should blacks consider creating a militia to combat systematic white supremacy? Once again it may seem a little extreme until you realize there are over a thousand white supremacist militia groups in the United States, in an article published on march 5, 2013 titled” anti-government militias in USA”, by Donna Leinwand Lever of USA TODAY, she writes: ” a report Tuesday by the southern poverty law center finds, the center tracked 1,360 radical militias and anti-government groups in 2012. An eightfold increase over 2008, when they recorded 149 such groups. The explosive growth began four years ago, sparked by the election of President Obama.”

So it would seem if the African-American community wants to thrive and not just be food to be fed to the industrialized prison complex, or be victims to the over 1,000 white supremacist militia groups, THE African-American community is going to have to develop three things, #1 a code of conduct on how to workout issues and do business with each other. #2 goes back to number one as far a business is concerned, but group economics, which will allow us to build wealth, infrastructure and rebuild the horrendous school system, so that we can educate the youth about their history and teach them math,science and new technology, so that they will know they can compete with anyone around the world and will have self-confidence and a knowledge of self and not am inferiority complex. #3 last but not least a militia will not only allow the African-American people to protect ourselves against a system of injustice coming from outside of our community, but will also allow for security within our community , so that we will not have to worry about cops trying to oppress us instead of protect us.image

OBAMA THE GREAT PROFIT! (POEM)

In 2008 Americans falsely we believed we the people elected a bronze skin and hair of wool prophet

turns out big business selected a beastly puppet to help them turn a big profit

Extreme liberals were blind in their unthinking love

Extreme conservatives were blind in their racist hate

And we the American people took the bait as greedy politicians distracted U.S. the sleeping citizen sheep for the elites

who sacrificed our the American people’s fate

just for they could have a meaningless birth certificate debate

While overnight they stripped alway many of our constitution rights

Fast and furiously Tried to take away some of our most tactical guns

while attempting to turn this country into a police state

Making it a crime to be a patriotic whistleblower like snowden

manning or the creator of Wikileaks

While silencing the mainstream media so much they are now meek and will preach whatever the powers that be demand they speak

Forced many to buy affordable healthcare they can barely afford While at the same time struggling to eat

so forget about the American dream of saving money and one day becoming an economic elite

like the middle American belief

If Martin Luther King was alive today

what has become of his I have a dream fantasy would have him crying himself to sleep!

OBAMA CARE: (POEM)

Obama cares for the economic elite

Obama cares for his campaign donors corporate greed

Obama cares for anyone with huge sums of money

even though huge droves of poor minorities voted for him like dummies

That must be why Obama does not care about people living in poverty like you or me

because even if he does nothing that he promises you or me

we will continue to vote for his party religiously!

BEWARE OF THE GREAT SPEAKER! (Poem)

He became a great speaker, and people gave him their minds

He became a hero of the people , and people gave him their love

He became a savior of the people, and the sheeple gave him their freedom!
