Here Dead We Lie

Here dead lie we because we did not choose
     To live and shame the land from which we sprung. – -A.E. Housman

It is the obligation of Americans today to finally, once and for all do away with Apartheid. Black lives really matter. But so do white lives. In order for this country to end apartheid it really doesn’t help to have black people attacking white people on the streets or having white people attack black people under any circumstances. This must not become a war between blacks and whites- we need unity, not disparity.

Right from the beginning I thought that the BLM leaders should have hired their own guards to make sure that neither from either inside or outside there are people who are looters and destroyers that will fall exactly into the plot of Trump’s agenda. People who want to agitate and cause upheaval, they are costly and will ultimately destroy the cause of BLM.

People protesting peacefully on the streets of the United States does make a difference. When white people and black people join forces peacefully they are winning the war against prejudice and hatred.

The fires that Mr Trump stokes are then exact opposite of the peaceful movement. He wants looting. He wants conflict. He wants war. Anyone who saw his RNC Convention and his 3 blond haired, blue eyed, white skinned barbie dolls has to have gotten the message that he wants an America that is all blond haired, blue eyed and white skinned. He will do in the next 90 days whatever he needs to do to cause chaos and to destroy the BLM movement. The leaders of the movement must take command of the protests and protect themselves from the people, both inside and outside the peaceful movement, who will otherwise ultimately overwhelm the cause and derail it.

Hit the streets but keep the peace.

  1. Here, here. LBJ said his desire to end Jim Crow was as much about saving the Southern whites as it was about saving Southern blacks.
