The Hate that will Not Go Away
A few months ago during a diversity training, I listened to an Indian woman explain why several of her friends are planning to return to India ASAP. Basically, her friends who have daughters are allegedly terrified by how the Hip-Hop culture has infiltrated their homes. Even with parental control guides placed on their televisions to prevent and/or control the amount of BET and MTV their children watch, they have found it increasing difficult to steer their impressionable teenage children from "urban-ness" and from downloading Lil Wayne’s latest compact disc. So, the answer is to take their American born children back to where they, the parents, came from.
As I sat there speechless and somewhat surprised by the move. Literally. I got offended - but then I started to think: 'These Indian men and women are doing what they believe to be best for their precious young ladies.' But, I did decide to question & push the issue - and after a little uncomfortable silence here is what the gorgeous Indian woman revealed to the group:
"Many of us are very concerned that our girls will marry outside of the ethic group. We want them to have Indian husbands. However, this American culture is encouraging relations outside of the race in some regards. So, we have decided to ensure that they do not get tangled-up in this thing. May sound silly and drastic, but in our culture you are to marry Indian; and not white, black, or Hispanic. And, we are discovering that are girls are interested in the saggy paint wearing black boys because of rap music influence." (No lie!)
The truth was in the air. There it was! My offense increased just a tidbit. Wow! The power of Young Jeezy. So much for, “once you go black you never go back”. Now it is, ‘hear a rap lyric and you are hooked!’
A consequence of an Indian man getting whipped by the black candy box, and unable to “go back”:
Just recently down here in the Mecca where we blacks live around blacks and whites live among whites (self-induced segregation in Lithonia and Sandy Springs), an elderly evil-filled Indian man paid two BLACK men $10,000 to kill a BLACK woman. His daughter-in-law.
This man some are calling a hateful racist claims that his son was "bringing down the families stock". Well, I guess the stock is profitable, worth a lot, etc. It has to be for a 68 year old man to take such disgusting measures.
I actually can believe that something like this could happen considering the seriousness placed on not 'polluting' the Indian race. I also find it non-surprising because hatred and racism still runs deep in the United States. It does not matter what mixed race man is running for President, and believes he is ‘uniting the races’. Race relations is STILL America's number one problem, and will remain until some white people change their hearts - not their votes! And, when some black people stop pretending that they are not racist too.
What is to be said about the two blood brothers who accepted $10,000 from the Indian hate-monger to kill their sista from a long line of African queens? This woman could have been a distant relative. Her great-great grandparents could have traveled to what is now the United States in the gut of a slave ship with their great-great grandparents. They could have worked together picking tobacco on a salve compound in Virginia. But, this did not mean a thing to these takers of life and morally unconnected fools. They took a life for a little change. Can you believe that? Somewhere down the long line of ancestry those brutal killers who choked and stabbed to death Sparkle in front of her daughter could have been her cousins.
So, I ask:
Who really possesses the most hate? The ruthless Indian killer or the African American killers?
