Trump Nation Has Arrived – Can We Talk?

‘Trump Nation’ has arrived and is now solidly in our faces.  People worldwide are watching as some question, some fume, some rejoice, and some simply ignore.  The problems and issues facing both America and  U.S. President Donald J. Trump are plentiful at best.

For some time now, America has been — and continues to be — on a downward course.  Greed, materialism, and selfishness have become the norm while homelessness, poverty, and racism have joined hands and became visible for all who choose to see.  Reality is that racism, selfishness and greed and the uncaring nature of ‘White America’ were the faire of the day long before Donald J. Trump’s 2017 U.S. Presidential Inauguration.

K thru 12 public education has long been  a cruel joke in many places throughout this nation.  Discrimination, gouging, usury, the absence of common courtesies abound while cruelty and self-indulgence and wastefulness are touted with arrogant entitlement.  The rich crave and take more while the poor get poorer and poorer.

Grown women speak of themselves as “girls” (as a person thinketh, so shall a person be….) while seeking approval, assurances,  and/or acceptance.  Fakeness, pretense and dishonesty abound while people become more and more easily manipulated.  There is an ever-increasing lack of self-respect, knowledge,  and common sense.

BlackParentSpeaks knows virtually zilch relative to our President, Mr. Donald J.  Trump; and, I venture to ‘assume’ that he, likewise,  knows absolutely nothing relative to BlackParentSpeaks.  That said, I offer the following to the readers of this BlackAngryWomen post.

First and foremost, I applaud all who are politically active.  I appreciate all of the protests and protesters who are bent on holding President Trump’s ‘feet to the fire’.  America touts a ‘concept’ of freedom and justice.  People have a ‘legal’ right and a duty to speak out and to take ‘appropriate’ and ‘effective’ action…. (Please, do not ask BlackParentSpeaks to define ‘appropriate’ or ‘effective’.)

Even before Donald J. Trump officially entered the U.S. Presidency race, BlackParentSpeaks voiced that Mr. Trump would likely win if he declared himself a candidate.  The fusion of politics, racism and more — as well as Mrs. Hillary Clinton’s perceived coldness and ‘baggage’, etc. — led BlackParentSpeaks to declare that Trump would win if he ran.

Today, Donald J. Trump is President of the United States of America.

Shortly after Mr. Trump’s victory, BlackParentSpeaks voiced that President Trump would prove to be the greatest U.S. President, in recent history, to unite people both inside and outside of the United States.  Given sufficient time, whether perceived as good or bad, U.S. President Donald J. Trump will prove to be the ‘Great Uniter’.

From the vantage point of BlackParentSpeaks, President Donald J. Trump is viewed as a man of strong  belief and conviction.  He has been shaped and formed by way of his experiences and ‘albeit limited’ interactions and environment.  Although rooted in racism, Donald J. Trump has feasted on the pudding.  Trump is a man who will do it his way unless he is either stopped or fittingly informed, challenged, and convinced otherwise.

BlackParentSpeaks advocates ‘Black Power’ and firmly opposes (‘White’) racism.  BlackParentSpeaks writes firsthand relative to the multitude of debts owed by White America to Black America.  BlackParentSpeaks offers up just a few of the many many many racial evils and wrongs committed by and/or enabled by ‘White’ America.  WE who are ‘Black’ must never forget and WE must not enable ‘White’ America to deny, rewrite or misconstrue, or feign forgetfulness.

BlackParentSpeaks congratulates Donald J. Trump on his U.S. Presidential win; and, BlackParentSpeaks looks forward to expanded activism, mobilization, and unity.  Who knows, perhaps President Trump will step forth from his ‘comfort zone’ and sign an Executive Order that will forthright make initial nontaxable and noncountable-as-income $39,000.00 reparation payments to US who are the Black victims of White America….  Can we talk?

Black Power!

Black & White Oregon and Plagues in America

Race confusion runs amok in America as the disconnect between individuals expands even within easily identified racial and ethnic groups.

BlackParentSpeaks has never been an advocate of segregation or integration as defined and designed by White folk.  BlackParentSpeaks does — and always has — supported ‘Black Power’.

Life was so much simpler when BlackParentSpeaks was a youngster.  Folk were either Black or White.  In other words, if a person was NOT ‘accepted’ as White by ‘White America’, that person was ‘considered’ and identified as Black or a ‘person of color’.

Clearly, I recall some of the multiple discomforts of public school integration here in Portland, Oregon during the 1950s.  Prior to that time, my childhood world was both loving and racially embracing and ‘Black’ schools were inviting and nurturing and educationally fun.

As a third-grader, BlackParentSpeaks was legally forced to ‘integrate’ to a ‘White’ school — namely, Irvington Elementary School in Portland, Oregon.  Although the ‘change’ was without question traumatic for me as a child, it exposed BlackParentSpeaks to up-close and in-my-face racism.  I was hurled into the ‘belly of the beast’ — White racism.

Today, having been both a victim and a survivor of racism — America’s White racism, has ‘helped’ in qualifying BlackParentSpeaks as a ‘truthful’ expert on White folk and racism.

Racism is the greatest impediment to ‘true’ Black success.  And, racism is the greatest impediment to White salvation.  No matter the color or ethnicity of a person, money and material hoarding and possessions do not equate to success nor does such equate to a person’s salvation.

Racism, poverty, homelessness and sub-par housing issues, hunger, health issues and health problems, school and library failures, unemployment and underemployment, gouging and usury, disconnects, selfishness and greed and the ‘rich get richer’ allowances, disrespect and a wanton lack of self-respect,  arrogance and a ‘me and mine’ mindset, are some of the many ‘domestic’ plagues facing local jurisdictions and  this nation.

All questions have answers and all problems have solutions.

Remember Food for ‘Black’ thought:

(a) If you want to die, go to a hospital.

(b) It is often wiser to be proactive as opposed to reactive.  However, it is sometimes better to do and/or say something than to go away and wish later that you had done or said something.

(c)  Click the Donate button at the top right of BlackAngryWomen and donate now if you are so inclined.  Remember to forward BlackAngryWomen posts to others. 

(d)  It is NOT okay for adults to whip or beat children.  Adults should be creative, loving, and patient when motivating and interacting with children.  An adult should never  verbally or physically abuse a child.

(e)  Pick an opportune moment this week and turn off and put out-of-sight your phone for a minimum of 5 to 7 hours.  If you are able to do this, you may experience a true sense of relief and accomplishment afterwards.
