50 YEARS AFTER ‘THE DREAM’, THE NIGHTMARE CONTINUES

WHITE SKIN AMERICA
By Tom Karlson
*

That White Skin

Another man gone done

He could not stand his ground                

Another man gone

Ah those riflin’

Standin’ your ground

Hoodie baitin’

Black skin huntin’

Legal lynchin’

Terrorizin’

White skinned privileged motherfucker

Judged prosecuted defended juried

Tag teamin’

three card Monty playin’

Strange fruit swingin’

*

A shot to the heart

The dead man’s on trial

The shooter whines

Feared for his life

*

The heads talk

And talk of

Post racial America

A black presidented America

A beyond reasonable doubt America

*

Not a murmur

Of a million stop and frisks

A thousand legal lynchings

The 21st century Jim Crowed prison complex

And never not ever

0f white skin privileged America

*

Another man done gone

He could not stand his ground

Another man done gone

Another man done gone

    i guess i saw it differently.

    this trail has showed that indeed black america is racist too.

    the roderick scott case is a great example of the double standard.

    soon there will be neighborhood watches everywhere as things implode more.

    blacks and whites will band together in their own communities to defend against aggression by criminals of every shape, size and color.

    and the media wont be able to manipulate any group and blame it on racism.

    The US Government does not hate Black Americans. The US government hates all Americans: black, white, yellow, brown, red, etc. etc.

    The policies of the oligarchy have always been to divide and conquer the bulk of the population. Their goal is to keep the working masses at each other’s throat. Institute fear. Promote hatred. Foment violence. Generate Chaos. The media, i.e. paid lackeys, promote and highlight this madness.

    Unfortunately, far too many Americans have accepted this paradigm. The cancer is malignant.

    But there is hope and there is an awakening.

    Slowly the veil is falling to the side and the absolute evil is being exposed. Hopefully, the American people may move on from one issue petty politics to a unified voice for justice in America and throughout the world.

    150 years later, nothing has changed…………….

    In one of the many heavy handed sessions at the July 2013 Aspen Security Forum sponsored by the Aspen Institute, retired CENTCOM chief General James Mattis stated that the “war on terror” has no discernable end and likened it to “the constant skirmishing between [the US cavalry] and the Indians”.

    Once again, 150 years later, nothing has changed……………..the only good injun is a dead injun ………….. A senior military officer dismisses the genocidal war against the free people of the Americas as tit for tat skirmishes.

    Clearly, instituitional racism against the indigenous people of the Americas and the indigenous people of the Middle East is alive and well and virulent as ever.
