The Smallest Giant
The United States is currently trapped in an extremely racist and socially toxic quagmire. The U.S. has been this way since its inception back in 1776. The foundation of the U.S. has and always be racism against Black Americans. For those of you who think that this statement is false, let's run through a list of facts that will shatter your doubts into a thousand pieces. The peculiar institution of slavery was effective because the government convinced the people (through racist propaganda and pseudoscience) that black people were less than human, or three-fifths of a human being. This diabolical philosophy seeped into the minds of white Americans during the 18th and 19th century like a staph infection in an open wound. When human chattel slavery was "abolished" and re-established covertly via the 13th amendment, the oppression against Black Americans went into full overdrive. Jim Crow laws, segregation and the repercussions of slavery should have completely demoralized and eradicated the black American population. However, something miraculous happened: Black America found a way to survive and even thrive!
After the Civil War, many blacks set up shop in Northern cities such as New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Chicago and St. Louis were major relocation hubs in the Midwest and Atlanta had become one of the most prosperous beacons of hope and economic prosperity for black folks who wanted to remain in the South. Then there were other smaller yet prosperous communities such as Rosewood (FL), Tulsa (OK), Knoxville (TN) Harlem (NY) and Allensworth (CA) that often flew under the radar of U.S. historians. The majority of these black towns were often destroyed during race riots in the early 20th century by bitter and jealous white residents.
These white mobs resented the fact that a race of people who they brutally tortured and killed during slavery a few decades ago were able to "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" and become more successful than them! Here lies the primary reason why racism against the black man, woman and child needs to maintain at all costs. The honorable Dr. Francis Cress Welsing brilliantly illustrated how racism is enforced in her classic book "The Isis Papers." For those who aren't familiar with her book, Dr. Welsing stated that the so-called PTBs exercises racism in the nine primary areas of human activity: economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex and war. If you were living under a rock for the past thousand years and suddenly saw this system of racism for the first time, you would probably wonder why such an elaborate and extremely expensive agenda would be used on a race of people who are at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder. Well, apparently J. Edgar Hoover, the former and infamous director of the FBI knew why the oppression of Black Americans was such a priority.
Back in 1956, Hoover ordered the creation of the FBI’s Counter Intelligence Program, also known as COINTELPRO. The “official” reason for its creation was to disrupt subversive groups that were allegedly destroying the fabric of America. In reality, Hoover could give two shits about the safety and well-being of the American public. Hoover’s primary agenda was to infiltrate black organizations and identify the “Black Messiah” that would destroy the status quo and even the social scales. Hoover’s diabolical creation decimated dozens of Black organizations that would have helped to restore stability in the African-American community by reinforcing unity and self-sufficiency. COINTELPRO was supposedly dismantled by the FBI after Hoover passed away back in 1972.
However, its framework and philosophy are still being maintained today. Have you noticed how anybody who even thinks about devising a strategy to help African-Americans gets ostracized? It doesn’t matter what socio-economic status they possess. The best or worst kept secret (depending on your perspective) is that the agenda of subjugating Black Americans will always supersede the everything else in the United States. This is why the opioid crisis keeps getting swept under the rug. Middle and suburban America is getting decimated by heroin and other opium derivatives. But because of the so-called elites’ obsession with making young Black men a part of the prison industrial complex, everything else falls to the wayside. If the U.S. government is enforcing this mentality, should it be any surprise that the country is in its current state? If America wants to truly abide by its ideals and the Constitution, it will stop persecuting the African-American community and let it flourish naturally so that it regain its status as the greatest country in the world.
