Like a rainy night in Georgia, crisis all over the world. President Barack Obama must sometimes feel alone, one crisis after another one. First African-American president, no blueprint, no carefully designed plan – only reproduction of the slave masters, the good old boys hindering progress with their propaganda.
Crisis on the border, catastrophe around the world, National Guard troops on the border preventing poor little dark-skinned children like mine from entering the United States. If the children’s skin color was white, and they had blue eyes and blonde hair, would we send them back? Would we stand by and allow racist people to attack them?
When the Little Rock Nine were integrated into Little Rock Central High School in 1957, troops from the 101st Airborne National Guard did their best to protect them from the racist adults screaming, “One N’ down, eight to go.” (Arkansas Gazette, Wednesday, Dec. 18, 1957.)
People from all lifestyles contributed to make America the greatest country in the world. Refugee children crossing the border have nothing to do with homelessness and the injustices in America. The good old boys war created this mess, maintaining authority and power over the poor.
The more things change, the more they remain the same. Every living mother wants a better life for her children. Every child needs to be loved. Skin color and religious beliefs should not matter. There is something for everyone and in the end we all benefit. We will pay taxes and die, so live and let live. Treat people as you want to be treated.
I want my 40 acres and a mule.
