As I read this article, this statement jumped out at me; "When we talked about a new majority, if our new majority doesn't have a vision for white folks who've been locked in poverty generationally, then we're never going to quite get there." Kudus to Me Ben for diagnosing the malady, but the cure is still left lacking. Until the mis-education of the White man is remedied, the elitist mindset of the impoverished segment of the majority population is addressed, change is next to impossible to accomplished to the degree the Founders envisioned for themselves and their Posterity. Why do I say this? When one returns and rereads the Preamble of the One Founding document that stipulates the intent of the Founders, it becomes chystal clear that the plans for this Land was for the purpose of exploitation the many and enrichment for The Few.
There's a scriptural passage which states "My People Are Lost For Lack Of Knowledge!" (Hosea.4:6) When things happen in the world of politics and economics, especially when they continue to happen with marvellous
consistency, then they are being made to happen and are meant to happen. A piece of ancient wisdom
which the Romans sumerised in two words pregnant with meaning: Cui Bono? Or, as we would
say today when trying to unravel some political mystery: Who stands to benefit. To unravel this current enigma of who benefits from the way things are today requires the study of a bit of History; not his story but those documents which has been suppressed. Lets start with the text of the Papal Bulls of Pope Nicholas-V in 1541. then meander down through the50 years or so to the establishment of the authority under which Christopher Columbus debarked from Spain, known as the Doctrine of Discovery. Here you'll find within these documents to the names and faces of the relevant beneficeries of this alleged Apostolic Sanctioned Authority to either enslave impoverish, or annihilate all Pagans, Saracens and Heathens who resisted conversion to Christianity. Thus you have the foundation for the Crusades and the Inquisition. the invasion of Ireland, Wales and Scotland by the Roman Legions.
What I wish to shed light upon is the manifestation of some of the evidence The Rev. Jeremiah Wright must of alluded to when uttering the remarks that drove the wedge between himself and his now most esteem Church member. But there's more; so much more, but for a later time. So let me close by asking; Is there a profound misunderstanding today of MLK's message by those of us who were suppose to have benefitted from the Dream he proclaimed? Were we to seek the equality he spoke of by the destruction of our own? Was equality to be found in with-in the illusion of invading establishments of businesses and spending your money where you weren't welcome? Who really benefitted from these efforts of civil disobedience? Who owned the Businesses that went "belly-up" for the lack of support? Walk around the south-side of Chicago and see what once use to thrive in Black neighborhoods and answer Who Benefitted from your own lack of Knowledge of who you are as a People? Yet It has all happened before and continues to happen. Greenwood Oklahoma is an earlier example; The Sit of Black Wallstreet.
