Commentary: David had to go after Goliath

The living dead wants to roll us back to Jim Crow laws and a subordinate position in American life.

I know you have been reading between the lines but let me be more explicit. We have elected a President, Congress and an Attorney General and it is high time to strike back against the Neo-Confederates in Texas and the nation. This is a unique opportunity to put the Neo-Confederates on their heels and backs.

When President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland in 2016 for the Supreme Court, Moscow Mitch (McConnell) and the Republicans refused to give him a hearing on the basis that 2016 was a presidential year. Now, the cornerstone that was rejected is the chief law enforcement officer in America. Garland indicates that he has not forgotten his humble beginnings with this SANKOFA “never forget” moment.

“I come from a family where my grandparents fled anti-Semitism and persecution … the country took us in and protected us, and I feel an obligation to the country to pay back, and this is the highest, best use of my own set of skills to pay back.”

The Justice Department’s initial mission was to thwart and corral the white supremacists such as the Ku Klux Klan that were trying to roll back emancipation after the southern states and Texas were defeated. They started strong but failed when federal troops and bayonets were pulled out of the South.

Chapter II begins with President Joe Biden and . Atty. General Garland

Garland is clear about a straight-line trajectory from the white supremacist Oklahoma bombing in 1995 that killed 168 Americans, including nine babies. The trajectory should start from the bombing and attack on Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1921 that killed hundreds of people. This race massacre was incited by city officials that deputized and armed low intelligence white citizens to attack the Black community.

Garland is proud of his Jewish heritage and cannot be hoodwinked. The same forces that sought to wipe Black people out are the same forces that wanted a final solution by the death of all Jews. Many of the Neo-Confederates that participated in the January 6 Capitol insurrection wore T-Shirts that argued for death camps like Auschwitz and Dachau to be re-established.

The murderers of James Byrd belonged to a white supremacist prison gang. No stone can be left unturned. Every white supremacist and sympathizer suspected of past or future criminal activity must be profiled and the full weight of the law must be applied. There are hundreds of U.S. attorneys in Texas. The Klan and its sympathizers must not be permitted to revive.

Few Klansmen and their business and civic sponsors have ever been arrested for their crimes of terror. For what it is worth, there was a KKK Act of 1871.

The people need arrests, convictions, long jail sentences for racially inspired crimes, not just wolfing and smoke.  Our local acting Southern District Attorney is Jennifer Lowery. Call her and tell her that Goliath left David no choice.

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
