SO, WHAT IS WHITE AMERICA REALLY SAYING/NOT SAYING TO BLACK? HOW LONG WILL THE SUFFERING OF BLACK PEOPLE LAST? HOW FORGIVING MUST AN OPPRESSED PEOPLE BE? IF BLACK PEOPLE CANNOT FEEL SAFE IN AMERICA WHERE IS HOME? THE DOMINANT NARRATIVE IN AMERICA READS-“YOU ARE UNABLE TO ASSIMILATE”- “ANYTHING BLACK IS BAD”. “ANYTHING WHITE IS GOOD”. THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE BECOME.”.

EXCERPT (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS- THE DRED SCOTT CASE OF 1857 HAS NEVER LEFT US. WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE. NO APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTH. FOR ANY HUMAN NOT TO FEEL MOVED BY HURT IN THE RECENT SLAYINGS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE, BE THEY WHITE OR BLACK, THEN THEY ARE NOT OF FLESH AND BLOOD. FOR ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE RECENT A.M.E CHURCH SLAYINGS IN SOUTH CAROLINA, I RAS CARDO FROM JAMAICA SAY- WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH TO CONSOLE YOU IN THIS TIME OF GREAT SORROW AND LOSS. I WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW THAT -JAMAICA- STANDS STRONGLY WITH YOU ALL. MY FAMILY, FRIENDS AND OTHERS HOLD YOU IN OUR PRAYERS. YOUR CRIES AND YOUR SORROWS WILL NOT GO UNANSWERED. JAH WILL COMFORT YOU AND WILL SEND HIS WRATH UPON ALL WHO HATE. I WANT YOU ALL TO LISTEN UP TO WHAT WE ALL KNOW IS TRUE:- THE HISTORY OF BLACKS IN AMERICA HAS NOT CHANGED FOR THEIR BETTERMENT SINCE THE DAYS OF SLAVERY. I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE, THAT IT WAS NEVER THE INTENTION OF SLAVE MASTERS TO SET BLACKS FREE ONCE THEY FORCIBLY BROUGHT THEM TO AMERICA AND OTHER PLACES IN THE WEST. ANY WHITE SLAVE MASTER OR THEIR DESCENDANTS CANNOT TRUTHFULLY SAY TO ME THAT THEIR INTENTION WAS TO SET US FREE.. HAD I NOT KNOWN THE TRUE HISTORY OF SLAVERY FROM JAMAICA, I WOULD HAVE BEEN A FOOL IN AMERICA, FOR THE INTENTION OF SCHOOLING IN AMERICA SEEKS TO MAKE BLACK PEOPLE NOT FULLY AWARE OF THEIR ANCESTRAL HERITAGE AND SUFFERINGS. I HAVE HAD TO EDUCATE MANY BLACK BORN AMERICANS ABOUT THEIR HISTORY. SOME CARE TO KNOW, WHILE OTHERS DO NOT SEEM TO GIVE A DAMN. THOSE WHO FAIL TO KNOW THE TRUE HISTORY AS TO WHY THEY ARE HERE AND BLACK, WILL FOREVER REMAIN IGNORANT IN THE SUFFERINGS AND INJUSTICE DONE TO THEM. THE TRUTH OF OUR PAST LIES IN THE TRUE HISTORY. WHITE HISTORIANS WRITE WHAT SUITS THEIR CAUSES AND INTENTIONS, AND THEY HOLD THE MEANS TO THE PRINTING PRESS. TODAY IN 2015- ANYONE CAN SEEK AND FIND THE TRUE CAUSE OF THEIR PROBLEMS. THE POVERTY WHICH OFTEN IMPEDES THE ACCESS OF BLACKS TO GET THE TRUTH IS PERVASIVE. YOU CANNOT TEACH A HUNGRY MAN ANYTHING. YOU HAVE TO FEED HIM FIRST. FOR THE MANY WHITES FROM AMERICA AND THE UK WHO NOW CALL JAMAICA THEIR HOME, IT IS CLEAR TO ME THAT IT IS THE BLACK MAN WHO REMAINS WITHOUT A PLACE TO CALL HOME. DEEP INTO THE FABRIC OF AMERICA ARE THOSE HIDDEN WHO FEEL THAT THEY OWN AMERICA, TO THE EXCLUSION OF OTHERS. THIS BIAS, FILLED WITH HATE, IS WHAT FUELS THEM TO DENY THOSE WHOM THEY FEEL HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE AND NO WAY TO CONTEST THEM. KNOWLEDGE MAY GIVE ONE POWER, BUT EVEN THE FOOL WITH HIS WEALTH WILL SEE DESTRUCTION. MAN IS NOT CAPABLE OF ACTING WITHOUT BIAS, AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH HE MAY TAKE THIS- DETERMINES AND DEPENDS ON HIS LUST AND OBSESSION FOR CONTROL AND DOMINATION OVER ANOTHER AT ALL COST. SUCH IS THE CASE FOR THE PERPETUATION OF HATRED AND RACISM IN AMERICA. BLACKS IN AMERICA NEED TO REALIZE THE TRUTH THAT THOSE WHO ARE FOREVER FIXATED ON HATE AND THE FEAR OF SEEING OUR PEOPLE RISE WILL CONTINUE THEIR RELENTLESS EFFORTS TO MATERIALIZE THEIR WISHES. DRED SCOTT FROM ST. LOUIS MISSOURI IN 1857 TRIED TO PLEAD FOR HIS FREEDOM FROM SLAVERY, BUT WAS DENIED BY THE COURTS. NOTHING HAS CHANGED- THE COURT DECIDED THAT AN INSIGNIFICANT BLACK MAN AND HIS FAMILY WERE STILL SLAVES AND NOT FREE CITIZENS AS THEY HAD CLAIMED. THIS HELPED TO SHAPE AND CONFIGURE THE CIVIL WAR. THE NEGRO WAS DEGRADED TO SUCH A DEGREE AS TO BE VIRTUALLY NONEXISTENT. FROM A PERSON TO A THING. SLAVERY WAS SO FIRMLY ESTABLISHED AND LEGALIZED IN THE SOUTHERN COLONIES THAT BLACKS HAD NO WAY OUT. TODAY, REGGAE AND RASTAFARI SINGS- NO CHAINS AROUND MY FEET, YET I AM NOT FREE. TODAY, WE SEE WHAT HAS BEEN CALLED- A GOVERNMENT BY THE JUDICIARY. THEY ARE NOW INITIATORS OF SOCIAL CHANGE EXCEPT THE CHANGES WHICH WILL HELP LIBERATE BLACK PEOPLE. THOSE WHO ENSLAVE BLACKS IN AMERICA FORGOT THAT THEIR ANCESTORS HAD TO FLEE FROM THE OPPRESSIONS IN EUROPE AND SEEK REFUGE IN PLACES LIKE THE NEW ENGLAND STATES, AND JAMAICA, AND CANADA. THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE REMINDED OF THAT, BUT THIS IS THE SAME ENSLAVEMENT THEY INFLICT ON OTHERS. FOR EVERY ETHNIC ENSLAVED PEOPLE IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICA, BLACKS SUFFER THE MOST AND CONTINUE TO BE SO. HISTORY CAN RECALL THAT WHEN THE ITALIANS DISCOVERED WHAT WAS BEING DENIED THEM, MEN LIKE – LAGUARDIA- STOOD UP AND SPOKE THE TRUTH FOR HIS PEOPLE. I HAVE SAT AND SPOKEN WITH EVERY CLASS AND RACE OF PEOPLE IN THIS GREAT COUNTRY. I HAVE DETAILED THEIR STORIES. I HAVE LISTENED TO THEIR CRIES. EVERYTHING I HAVE WRITTEN HERE IS TRUE. BLACKS HAVE BEEN IN THIS COUNTRY SINCE THE SEVENTEENTH- CIRCA 1619. TODAY IN 2015 THEIR CONDITIONS HAVE WORSENED. WHITE HISTORIANS LIKE TO WRITE THAT- BLACKS FAIL TO ASSIMILATE INTO THE AMERICAN CULTURE, AND THE REASON THEY WILL GIVE IS THAT BLACKS- DO NOT HAVE THE MENTAL ABILITY TO BE EDUCATED. THEY HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT OUR- IQ- INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENT, AND HAVE USED THE STATISTICAL BELL CURVE TO LIE ABOUT US. TODAY, YOU HAVE PASTORS AND PREACHERS PREACHING THE POLITICS OF HATE, AND THEN WE WONDER WHY WHITE BOYS LIKE- DYLANN ROOF- DID WHAT HE DID. SUCH HYPOCRITES ARE WE. REGGAE AND RASTAFARI SAYS- TELL THE CHILDREN THE TRUTH. THEY LIKE TO USE US FOR EXPERIMENTATION, BUT NEVER GIVING US THE PROPER EDUCATION. THEY WILL NEVER SAY THAT THEY DENIED US ACCESS TO THAT WHICH IS GOOD- YET WE HAVE FAILED TO ASSIMILATE INTO THE CULTURE BECAUSE WE ARE UNABLE TO BE EDUCATED OR ASSIMILATED. EVERY NOW AND THEN WHEN ONE OF OUR PEOPLE  RISES IN ACADEMIA IT IS REPORTED ON AS A BIG SURPRISE IN THE BIAS MEDIA CONGLOMERATES THEY HAVE REPORTING TODAY. NO ONE WILL TRUTHFULLY SPEAK ABOUT WHAT HAS BEEN DENIED US- YET THEY SAY THIS IS THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY. IF YOU CAN MAKE IT HERE THEN YOU CAN MAKE IT ANYWHERE- YEAH, RIGHT, BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO. WHILE OTHER WHITE SKINNED INDIVIDUALS CAN EASILY BLEND AND AVOID DETECTION BY A SYSTEM WHICH LOOKS AT COLOR, THE BLACK SKINNED PERSONS ARE NOT SO LUCKY. FROM MISSISUAGA TO MISSISSIPPI THE STRUGGLES FOR BLACKS IN NORTH AMERICA AND THE WEST CONTINUES. SO, WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE AMERICA? TO BUSINESS AS USUAL? HOW EASILY WE FORGET WHAT WE HAVE DONE TO HURT OTHERS. MAY JAH HAVE MERCY ON OUR SOULS!. (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.
