my father had served in WWII and the Korean War. He told me that he was ashamed of people. He told me to NEVER FORGET, a lot of crackers(idiom of the day) did not like Negroes. Why I asked. He said, because you are different from them. I asked how. Because you are a different color. What had this man done, too uppity toward whites was the reason spreading around' the negro' community, to keep that fear factor of the white man active. It took me many years to be unashamed of my color, yeah I became ashamed of my color and when I realized, in my service in Vietnam, fighting rednecks and the VC, and that the white man bled red and was no goddamn superman, I said fuck this shit and became militant as hell for many years. I was angry and full of piss and vinegar and hate. I have moderated because I have found many white people with a conscience on my life's pathways. This is just a short synopsis of the whole incident but it did form a powerful impression and much confusion that took me years to understand.

I got angry today , a friend of mine asked me for a ride. I said Sy where's your car. She said last weekend some white man drove her off the road, her young 3 year old daughter was in the car and she figured he did it because of her HRC sticker. She hit a tree and totaled her car. When she got out she noticed the fuck watching her and then he drove off. The police treated her story with no concern at all. She felt they didn't believe her. The insurance company, probably because of a police reports worded with their skepticism are treating her like she was at fault because of something she did. TRUMP, BANNON, MILLER and DUKE are responsible for she and her daughter almost getting killed.

My father showed me that dead body to show me how evil white racists can be. He said they were evil people that needed to die. And to always be ready to defend ones self against the evil perpetrated by scum like we have in the WH emboldening these assholes that almost killed my friend and her daughter. They are out from under their rocks and have crawled out from the toilets to TRY to get 'their' country all white again. It ain't gonna happen without a lot of death and misery coming on all people.

I'm glad he showed me, no white male has ever intimidated me. My father was a man and made me a man.
