We Are Upon The Crossroads

A few thoughts on the aftermath of the Zimmerman trial:

The only relevant thing that came out of this “trial” is something many of us already knew – black life is expendable. To be disappointed in the verdict indicates that one expected a just outcome in the first place. That so many people of all walks of life are disappointed, and by extension expected a just outcome, is comforting in that it holds at bay the complete and utter despair that I would otherwise feel. Non-NeoConfederates in general, and people of color in particular, have been under intensified attack since November 4, 2008. The complete and utter hatred that these people have for us has driven them completely mad, to the point where not only will they block any and all laws that would benefit the American people, they will go out of their way to enact laws that would aggressively harm those citizens – including their own supporters. There is apparently no line they will not cross, no conspiracy they won’t embrace, no level of hell they won’t attempt to subject us to – all in the name of their false supremacy.

I fear that they are creating their own self-fulfilling prophecy. After all, If you continually put it to people that you consider them less than “real” Americans, less than decent people, less than human, and deserving of being shot down in the street with absolutely no consequences whatsoever, what do you think the eventual outcome might be?

If you want a change, you’re going to have to vote – while you still can.

    Yes, we are coming by the millions everyone but the rich you pander to and the feeble minded who do not know any better than to follow you, or those who belong in insane asylums for the crimanlly insane. The rest of us the minorities, the women, the laborer, the middle class, the boomers, the immigrants name us and we are coming for the GOP. It is time for them to go.
