Trump’s Civil War

  
By Sevgi Fernandez

Civil War! We’ve been in one! Race war! It’s been here! We are going to all have to engage in this fight in order for it to end. It WILL get worse before it gets better. They are fearful, they know they have already lost and they will do anything to hold on. The United States is no longer a nation that will be run by the racist white elite. The civil rights movement began what our revolution will finish! We cannot do it divided. We must come together, it can’t just be about individual communities. Natives, Muslims, Immigrants, Blacks, Asians, Christians, LGBTQs, we are all one community that must unite against the hate and oppression. We must garner our power and hold each other up through this most important battle. Losing IS NOT AN OPTION!#TogetherWeStand

White Rage: Poll Finds that Whites, Republicans Are the Angriest Americans, while Blacks, the Victims of Racism are Least Angry

  
January 4, 2016

By: David Love

White people are angry, and a poll says they are the angriest in America. It looks as if white America, collectively, is crying white tears.
According to a new NBC News/Survey Monkey/Esquire online poll about outrage in the country, 49 percent of Americans are angry. But not all anger is equally distributed. It turns out that 54 percent of whites are angry, followed by Latinos at 43 percent, and African-Americans at 33 percent. Further, while 73 percent of whites said they get angry at least once a day, 66 percent of Latinos and 56 percent of Blacks responded the same way.
And women (53 percent) are angrier than men (44 percent), with 58 percent of white women saying they are angry, as opposed to 44 percent of Black and Brown women.
Another revealing result of this study is that Republicans are angrier than Democrats, as 61 percent—as opposed to 42 percent of Democrats—say they are angrier than a year ago. According to the poll, Republicans cite Congress and consumer fraud as the issues that set them off the most, while Democrats point to the police shooting of unarmed Black men.
In addition, the poll reveals a sentiment in the loss of the so-called “American dream,” with a majority of people finding it hard to get ahead and saying they are worse off. Middle-aged Americans were found to be the most pessimistic. Not surprisingly, the least angry were those earning higher than $150,000, while the angriest earned below $15,000.
It is curious that those who should be the angriest, however, are the least angry. That, of course, would be Black people. After all, Black folks are the ones who are hunted down, the runaway slaves who pose a constant threat of insurrection in the mind of whites. Black people are the scapegoated and the criminalized, the repository for white insecurity, the personification of white fear, angst, resentment and rage. And as the identified enemy, we pay the price for it in a variety of ways.
At present, we are witnessing white anger playing itself out in the rise of the neo-fascist xenophobe Donald Trump. The rage is rearing its ugly head in all of its grandiosity and dysfunction in Burns, Oregon, where an armed white militia has occupied a federal building, and vows to stay there for years, and kill or be killed. Exactly what is going on here?
It appears there is a confluence of events and circumstances, with the first Black president, and a nation that is becoming increasingly Black and Brown, particularly because Black and Brown people are soon to be a majority. Things were not supposed to be this way, as the idealized, homogeneous America of the 1950s when Black folks were invisible, except when cleaning white folks’ homes or hanging from a tree, is gone.

In the mind of the angry white man, sharing the nation with people of a darker hue, with those whose native language is other than English, and who are not Christian is unacceptable.
Meanwhile, when Black people, who have suffered for the centuries they’ve been in America, receive even a modicum of justice, just a taste of what has been denied to us, whites respond with rage and a feeling something was taken away from them. In comes the white tears, the hurt feelings, the insecurity, an unwarranted feeling of white persecution, of being aggrieved for something Black folks supposedly did.
As Damon Young wrote in The Root, this irrational fear among whites that they lose out when Blacks gain anything has had dangerous, violent consequences for Black people throughout history. For example, the Ku Klux Klan was a direct response to the political and economic gains of Black people following in the post-Civil War reconstruction era.
“It [has] white people so upset that this still relatively small percentage of the population had made some incremental progress, and so threatened by that thought, that they created a terrorist organization to quell it,” Young wrote.
Fareed Zakaria made an excellent point in the Washington Post—whites are in self-destructive mode. They are killing themselves, with mortality rates rising, as rates of death for Blacks and Latinos are declining steadily. The main causes of death among whites, are suicide, alcoholism, and drug overdoses, brought on by depression, despair and stress, particularly among uneducated whites.
Moreover, this is not being experienced in other countries. Zakaria attributes this to the fact that people of color “might not expect that their income, standard of living and social status are destined to steadily improve. They don’t have the same confidence that if they work hard, they will surely get ahead.” He added that “after hundreds of years of slavery, segregation and racism, blacks have developed ways to cope with disappointment and the unfairness of life: through family, art, protest speech and, above all, religion.”
As the poll indicates, white people are angry and they direct their anger against the least angry, those victims of white supremacy who should have the most to be angry about. Welcome to America.

Demand Arrests after assault at Trump Rally!

  
ATTENTION:The police allowed a black man to be assaulted on video at a Trump rally and did nothing. My group Together We Stand is active in cases of police racism/brutality. I’m posting the letters going out below. The more signatures we get the better. If you’d like to add your name please leave (add me) in the comments and I’ll do so. Thank you!
Mayor William A. Bell, Police Chief A.C. Roper, D.A. Brandon K. Falls:

I am writing on behalf of Together We Stand, a national and global group dedicated to racial equality and social change. It has come to our attention that an incident occurred in your city of which we are truly concerned.

After watching the video of the African American man who was assaulted at one of Donald Trump’s campaign rally’s in Birmingham, and the subsequent response, we are utterly dismayed.
Is it not against the law for people to physically assault an individual? We demand that an impartial investigation into the identities of the perpetrators be conducted and that arrests be made. You have all the evidence you need, as we are certain obtaining the video which is rapidly spreading across the Internet is quite simple. Lt. Sean Edwards made the statement that the three people were “asked to leave”, which is an unacceptable response, especially from an officer charged with upholding the law. We certainly hope you take the assault of this man as seriously as we do. This is the United States of America and no one is ABOVE the LAW.

We look forward to your timely response.

#Mizzou: To those who dismiss us…..

  
By Paige Julia Fernandez

I am so incredibly disappointed in the United States media for dismissing and blatantly disregarding the voices of the students of color at Mizzou and Yale. From headings such as “Missouri Confirms It: US Campuses Are Sliding into PC Chaos” to “The Most Expensive Day Care in the World” to “The Yale-Missouri Virus is Spreading” to “After Yale and Mizzou we Should Raise the Voting Age to 25” to “Yale, Mizzou, and the death of liberal toleration,” media outlets throughout the United States have successfully managed to belittle the painful experiences of students at Yale and Mizzou. These ludicrous articles accompanied by the senseless interviews taking place on talk shows and discussions on newscasts have all overlooked the real issues of institutionalized racism and the violent threats people of color face every day. Even with thousands of students screaming “our lives are in danger,” these sources (and people throughout the United States in general) continue to overlook the struggles of people of color. This is not a case of “sensitivity,” students are not being absurd or intolerant because they take offense to the racist rhetoric employed by both students and teachers alike, and they are definitely not being irrational or foolish for fearing for their lives. 

I am scared for the state my country, I am scared for my brothers and sisters of color, I am scared for our ability to speak out against racist actions and not receive such a ridiculous onslaught of criticism and so little support. But most of all, I am scared for our lives. 

To the students of color at Yale and Mizzou and other colleges throughout the United States and the world, I hear you. We, students of color throughout the US and the world, hear you. You are valid. Your opinions are valid. Your fear is valid. 

To those who dismiss us: 

We will rise up. We will be victorious.

The 2016 Democratic Party Debate’s Award Winning Racist Tweet

While there were plenty of racist tweets made during the Democratic Party Debate on Tuesday night, we’re going to have to point to former Arizona Republican Party chairman Randy Pullen as the winner…  At least from elected Republicans.  The voters themselves took the racism to another level and maybe we’ll cover that later. After the candidates […]
