An Explanation and Statement to My Brothers and Sisters Who Consider Themselves to be Black.

I would prefer that we all stop identifying, categorizing and dividing ourselves by race and racial colors.
However, this is not the current reality and we have to deal with issues as they actually exist.

First, if we are going to come together as just people and citizens in America, we have to be willing to give up all preconceived notions and attitudes toward each other.

This is asking a lot. But unless we can all do this, and unite without any sense of blame, grievances, prejudices or any negative presuppositions regarding each other individually, uniting as a nation is impossible.

Being unable to unite as a nation, means we all eventually lose as a “house divided”. America simply cannot meet and withstand the challenges we face together as a nation in today’s world if we are in conflict among ourselves. Our competitors and enemies use our dissension to defeat us. While things may not be perfect now, it will be far, far worse under those conditions.

So it comes to our being able to stand together or fall together…to prosper and prevail together or decline and suffer together.  It is our choice and we must make the decision regarding our future as a nation now, or continue as we are now and accept the consequences. Time is critical and will not wait.

For this reason, I have decided to point out some things to my kindred citizens who identify as being “Black”.

There has been, and is being, much presented to my brothers and sisters who consider themselves to be “White” and much effort has been made to make “White” citizens aware of their contribution to the “racial problem”. However, there is the other side of the issue. There is also the “Black” citizen’s contribution to the “racial problem”.

If you consider yourself to be “Black” and have “any sense of blame, grievances, prejudices or any negative presuppositions regarding” people you consider to be “White”, then you are contributing to the “racial problem” in our nation.  Are you “willing to give up all preconceived notions and attitudes toward other “White” citizens without restrictions or qualifications?

In writing the book “The Black and White of Racism”, I realized that there is much about our history together as a Nation that is often not known widely. In particular, there are many aspects relating to Slavery that are not taught or acknowledged today.

For example, Sheldon Stern, who “taught African American history at the college level for a decade before becoming historian at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum (1977-1999) – where he designed the museum’s first civil rights exhibit” noted:

“Failure to educate young Americans about the whole story of Atlantic slave trade threatens to divide our nation and undermine our civic unity and belief in the historical legitimacy of our democratic institutions. Education in a democracy cannot promote half-truths about history without undermining the ideal of e pluribus unum – one from many – and substituting a divisive emphasis on many from one. The history of the slave trade proves that virtually everyone participated and profited – whites and blacks; Christians, Muslims, and Jews; Europeans, Africans, Americans, and Latin Americans. Once we recognize the shared historical responsibility for the Atlantic slave trade, we can turn our attention to “transforming the future” by eradicating its corrosive legacy.”

(Ref: It’s Time to Face the Whole Truth About the Atlantic Slave Trade. History News Network. {Online] August 13, 2007, historynewsnetwork.org/article/41431 .)

So, I decided to point out some factual information to my fellow citizens who still hold on to dividing themselves as “Black”. My hope is that it will help promote the abandonment of the “blame, grievances, prejudices or any negative presuppositions”, that set us apart. If you like we can discuss the issues.

Keep in mind that how we approach another citizen will influence how they will relate to us. Attitude shows, affects and can damage any relationship. A smile often begets a smile in return.

As a final note, my ancestry is what my father called “pre-American Native”. With his help, I forgave and chose to forget in order to become a fully enfranchised, full blooded American Citizen. I have no racial color and am a brother to all my fellow citizens without any hyphenation or qualification.

For this reason, I reach out to you my brothers and sisters, please join me and be free.

  1. Well i get this but again the devil is a liar… Right now america is not ok Waylon!!! You got muslims bombing up america in the name of Allah.

    Folks are self medicating with opiods to stop the pain inflicted by narcissistic and bullying americans.

    Im so proud of my black skin that i am a BLACK AMERICAN im not about to act like my blackness shouldnt be mentioned. All black people lives we NEED NOT be black…. We suppose to be everything else but black now here comes Waylon taking our blackness too.

    The only way to solve this race war is to stop denying it. We have been conditioned, brainwashed and chained by the brain…. I think we should be called what we are, which is African-American.

    Yes we need to get along with each other but really we need to get along with ourselves… So many americans are GROUPTHINKERS AND EASILY INFLUENCED by bullies and narcissitic people that sold they souls to the illumanti.

    Rather we call ourselves americans or black americans the illumanti still exist and thats where the white people comes in again. Everytime we think we getting strong and social the white people comes with the illumanti shit….

    This battle is not black or white its about teams… God side or the devil side. Good vs evil and its so sad the white people wants evil to prevail and good to die young….

    The people in america are so MISERABLE thanks to an all white federal government and an all white judicial system that white people need to just RESIGN FROM LEADERSHIP ROLES. And i bet Americans would get along and live better.

    Right now white people don’t play fair, great deceivers, lie with a clear face, and won’t put the guns down…. White people are powerstruck and sellouts…..

    How can you get along with a narcissistic culture like the europeans that love being bad and commiting the devils work cuz as they say it “where God at!” And im saying “right in front of your face!” And white people mad at God for not saving them from selling they sold to the devil and for planting they seeds on dry land and reaping no harvest…. Well God gave you seeds to grow, common sense to make good decisions and a book of instructions before living earth to follow and since white people couldn’t follow the rules they made MyGod didnt perform MIRACLES to save them from theyselves. Thats so white of white people…. So now they building ROBOTS, CLONES AND PLASTIC PEOPLE like maniacs and MyGod shdh…

    White people need to let go of the past, resign from congress and the federal government and pay back they debts. Then and only then would racism stop being an issue.

    White people dont want to get along…. Thats how come the start wars….. White people so mad at MyGod they motivating and empowering satan and meaning it.

    They sticking to they guns and taking pow…. They hands dirty ass hell and they hate washing they hands literally and metaphorically……. So theres 2-ways to skin a cat.

    Thank you
