It's About the Content Of Our Character

CONVERSATIONS ON RACISM

There's a smile in there somewhere, because the website is 90 % finished

I am hopeful over the coming weeks to share my own feelings about the shameful subject of Racism in America. To me, Racism is about Power and instilling Fear. Rape is about power and about Fear. Some may  say, that is from the radical fringe. But think on this if you will. The act or use of racism is exerting power over another for private selfish gain. And yes, our religious and political leaders play this sicken game as well. Then come their attempts to justify, that grows into bigotry, but human guilt will not be denied, it is inexorable. Thus, prejudice appears with its ugly form resulting in American's version of Apartheid - political and religious policy of racial segregation based on skin color from Africa, not all of Africa, 
just the regions of Sub-Saharan Africa.  

   The video on this site is 15 years old and it's 54 min in duration, however, if one is able to spare the time, the information given is as if Mr. Rutstein wrote a script for this
time in 2012. If you're fortunate to watch this video twice, I promise you will recognize 
our present day political and religious leaders engaged in a self-serving ideology to suppress and ignore the humanity of a people whose ancestral roots is Africa, as all humanity. A bitter reality for some. The powerful have, and are still, doing absolutely all to maintain the Status Quo of inequality. Unfortunately the words used to justify or deny the ugly truth of bigotry and prejudice is telling. Now bigotry and prejudice cuts both ways. An affect born of racial conditioning, assisted by our educational system. 

   Over the next week I hope you are able to devote an hour of your time to view the video. Keeping in mind the activity of racial prejudice disregards the humanity of a people. This is about human feelings. Governments deal with policy and make laws, presently our government is unable, as well as, unwilling to root out this self-serving platform of racist greed. Therefore, it is up to you and me, community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and block by block, initiated by individuals who have an interest in such things. We can do this, we must do this for the health and well being of our children and grandchildren. We must prepare them for the challenges of global and cultural competition in the world's market places. Quite frankly this is more than a 
15 minute sound bite. This is introspection for each of us, and that's hard work, more importantly, what will we do with what we learn. It is really up to us what kind of world 
we leave for the history books. Will we lay down on the job or will we stand for the truth we know?  

    Now, the content of our character, and a Virtue to ponder: Trustworthiness. 

   "You are a guardian of the seeds for the world to come. All that has gone 
before and all that is yet to come is within you. Through you passes humanity's 
saving fire. You are running in a relay. This is the moment you have been 
chosen to hold the torch. You cannot refuse to run".  -Tolbert McCarrol.
  
   We all have our own stories, this is mine. As it is said, "God willing and the creek don't rise". I'll be back Tuesday to share more of my story. Remember May Day, start something new. Thank You for your time and attention. I Am  Sandra Rembrandt
