NAACP- FEMALE PRESIDENT RESIGNS- SHE’S WHITE- BUT CHOSE TO BE SEEN AS BLACK- YET AMERICA SAYS- ” BE FREE TO BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE. IS THIS HYPOCRISY OR WHAT? I DID SAY THAT THE PROBLEM IN AMERICA IS NOT WITH THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN. WHY SHOULD THIS CAUSE SUCH A PROBLEM FOR HERSELF, HER FAMILY AND BLACK AMERICANS?

AMERICA- IS THIS WHAT WE HAVE BECOME?

WITHOUT PREJUDICE, MALICE OR HATE. NO APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTH.

AMERICA IS NOT READY, NOR WILL IT BE READY ANYTIME SOON TO MOVE AWAY FROM THE POLARIZATION OF RACE, NAMELY BLACK VERSUS WHITE/WHITE VERSUS BLACK RACIAL ISSUES.

FRANKLY, I AM NOT LOOKING FOR ANYONE TO SUPPORT MY TRUTH AS I WRITE IT, BUT THIS REVELATION IN A WHITE PERSON TRYING TO BE BLACK DOES NOT SURPRISE NOR DOES IT ANNOY ME.

AS A MATTER OF FACT I HAVE SEEN AND LISTENED TO MANY WHITE FOLKS WHO FEEL LIKE THEY WOULD BE BETTER OFF BEING BORN BLACK.

THESE INDIVIDUALS LIVE IN THE SHADOWS IN AMERICA JUST AS HOW  THOSE WHO ARE GAYS HAVE TO COPE WITH THE SOCIAL PROBLEMS THEY KNOW THEY WILL ENCOUNTER IF THEY DISCLOSE THEIR IDENTITY.

WHY SHOULD – A BRUCE JENNER- WHO WANTS TO BE A -CAITLIN- CAUSE SUCH AN UPROAR?

WHY SHOULD A WHITE WOMAN WHO WANTS TO FEEL WELCOMED AND ACCEPTED INTO THE BLACK ORGANIZATION CAUSE SUCH A PROBLEM FOR BLACK AND WHITE SOCIETY IN AMERICA?

LET ME SHARE THIS WITH WHITE AND BLACK AMERICA- LISTEN UP!

WHEN BOB MARLEY FIRST ARRIVED IN MY TRENCH TOWN HE WAS AS WHITE AS ANY CAUCASIAN COULD BE.

THE MOSTLY BLACK YOUTHS THERE WANTED TO HARM HIM BECAUSE THEY DID NOT TRUST ANYTHING WHITE.

MY PARENTS, MYSELF, AND SOME CLOSE BRETHRENS MADE SURE THAT THIS WOULD NOT HAPPEN. IT DID NOT HAPPEN. HE WAS SAFE. HE WAS LOVED. HE WENT ON TO SEND OUR MESSAGES TO THE WORLD OF -ONE LOVE- FOR ALL PEOPLE..

I WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN HIS SAFETY AND HIS LIVITY. WE ALL LOVED HIM. COLOR OF SKIN DID NOT MATTER. HE COME TO A LOVE OF ALL OF US.

I SHARE THAT WITH YOU AMERICA SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THAT WHAT YOUR PUBLIC OUTCRY HAS FORCED THIS WHITE YOUNG LADY TO DO IS TO RELINQUISH THE UNITY AND LOVE SHE MAY HAVE FOR THE PEOPLE IN HER UNSELFISH ATTEMPT TO HELP OTHERS, BY IDENTIFYING HERSELF WITH THE STRUGGLES.

DID NOT WHITES AND BLACKS IN AMERICA MARCH ACROSS THE BRIDGE IN SELMA WITH MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.?

WERE THEY MARCHING WITH HIM BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK OR BECAUSE HE DID SO FOR A CAUSE?

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE CAUSE WAS?

HOW DO YOU THINK INTER-RACIAL COUPLES WHO HAVE SEEN THIS SHOULD FEEL?

HOW DO YOU THINK THEIR CHILDREN WILL FEEL?

ARE WE TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICA OR TO BUILD AND UNITE IT?

IF THE BLACKS IN AMERICA CANNOT SEE THE LOVE IN ALL THIS, AND THE WHITES FAIL TO SEE IT ALSO, THEN WE ARE A LOST NATION.

SO, I RAS CARDO ASKS- WHERE IS YOUR LOVE AMERICA?

FRANKLY, I DO NOT SEE THIS AS AN ATTEMPT BY THE YOUNG LADY TO BE SOMETHING THAT SHE IS NOT.

AS A MATTER OF TRUTH- I DO COMMEND AND LAUD HER ACTIONS. THIS IS A MOST COURAGEOUS LADY. I CAN SEE HER INDEPENDENCE OF THOUGHT AND ACTIONS.

SHE IS NOT LIKE A JELLY FISH LIKE MOST OF US, SHE HAS A  PROMINENT SPINE.

BY HER ACTIONS ALONE , I CAN SEE SOLIDARITY AND FIGHT FOR A CAUSE.

BECAUSE- LOVE -HAS NO COLOR.

IF I WAS THE PERSON TO WHOM THE QUESTION- WHAT RACE ARE YOU?- WAS ASKED, THE PERSON WHO ASKED IT WOULD BE SO GROTESQUELY MOVED TO A REDUCTIO AD ABSURDUM.

SHE SHOULD HAVE TURNED THE QUESTION BACK ON HIM.

SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH THOSE IN AMERICA WHO FEEL THAT THE FREEDOM THAT IS AMERICA,  SHOULD ONLY APPLY TO THEM.

IF THIS YOUNG WHITE LADY WANTS TO BE FREE TO FEEL THE LOVE OF BLACKNESS IN AN ORGANIZATION WHICH ECHOES THE CRIES OF BLACK FREEDOM IN THE STRUGGLES FOR EQUALITY AND JUSTICE, AND THE ENDING OF SEGREGATION IN THIS AMERICA, THEN SHE SHOULD NOT BE MADE TO FEEL THAT WHAT SHE HAS DONE IN THIS REGARD IS WRONG.

THOSE WHO HAVE A  PROBLEM WITH WHAT I HAVE SAID- BE THEY WHITE OR BLACK CAN FEEL WHATEVER THEY WANT TO FEEL.

ANYONE HAS THE RIGHTS TO FEEL FREE IN AMERICA AS LONG AS IT DOES NOT ENCROACH ON THE RIGHTS OF ANY OTHER.

I TRUST THAT THIS LADY AND THE MEMBERS OF HER FAMILY CAN SEE THE LIGHT OF TRUTH TO KNOW THAT AS HUMAN BEINGS ON PLANET EARTH- NO MAN IS AN ISLAND.
