Parable of the Lovers and Haters

There are those who love themselves, even in the animal kingdom the lion loves being the king. The elephant loves his power. The monkey and gorilla love their antics. Every people should enjoy the right to be themselves. Do you think white people can totally deconstruct their whiteness, their white supremacy, this is a most difficult task even for the most liberal of liberals and radicals as well. Their white supremacy mythology is cunning and vile. It expresses itself when they least expect it, hence they are in total denial about it. For example, liberals will denounce the Confederate flag but support the right of Southerns to maintain their tradition. Tradition of what? Slavery? Total domination of North American Africans? The mythology that they won the Civil War. Denial of the fact that 200,000 North American African troops were decisive is kicking their motherfucking white supremacy asses!

The disarming of the 200,000 African troops led to the rise of the Klu Klux Klan and Jim Crow, legal lynchings and failed Reconstruction that necessitated the Civil Rights Movement and ultimately the Black Power/Black Arts Movement of the 1960s Ah, we did not practice what the American revolution taught us, i.e., eternal viligance! Don't go to sleep. I said in a proverb, "The Devil never goes to sleep, he just changes shifts." We went to sleep and hence now suffer the Myth of Sisyphus, again forced to roll the rock up the hill for it to drop to the ground so me must begin the assent again for eternity. Trust me, there are those whites who are convinced we shall be caught in the Sisyphus mythology for eternity. While selling on Oakland's Lakeshore, a white man said, "Don't you see this is a White supremacy neighborhood. You're not getting anywhere with what you're talking about: How to Recover from White Supremacy." Another white boy passed my stand on Lakeshore and shouted to me, "What year did you go crazy??
