Black Lives Matters – Doesn’t

| June 30, 2020

Black Lives Matters – Doesn'tThe country is being burned and cowed by the violence of the Black Lives Matters (BLM) movement, since this political special interest group has been infiltrated and subverted by seditious bad actors seeking to create mayhem in the name of social equality.

During the day, I stream disturbing news accounts, but in the quiet of the night, I recall what I experienced as a young boy in 1965.

Those memories of me sitting beside my mother and watching the nightly news accounts on our old B&W television are vivid even to this day.

One might find it hard to believe it possible, given the technology of the day. The resolution was poor and scratchy, and then there were those darn fiddle-forever antennas.

Yet we bore witness to history in the making and were forever changed by the experience.

An Ugly Thing to Witness

Together, my mother and I witnessed the beatings, the dogs, the fire hoses, and the steadfast courage of those marchers in shocked silence.  It was a naked and ugly thing to behold, though some would argue, it was necessary to soften the heart of a nation.

What we saw was that the only violence being done was to the marchers.  Yet, they bravely stood and took it, and would not yield any predicate to their abusers.

It was an odd duality, being sad on the one hand and inspiring on the other.  How each who born witness in a similar manner, was affected was unique, so I can only speak to my impressions.

What the marchers showed me is that only the high road offers true equality.  Although following it is not easy, the high road does offer an upside – no traffic congestion.  Perhaps because it demands a profound understanding.

You can never forget the past, but it will repeat itself if you do not forgive it.

And so this is how this childhood impression, ironed itself into my memories and why those old, grainy B&W images forever creased the fabric of my life.  No doubt, countless others of my age were likewise moved by the courage of the marchers, and so a good and noble multi-generation process was this way set in motion.

The marchers also showed us that violence and arrogant rage is not how you make a difference.

This is why Black Lives Matters – doesn’t.

What Does Matter

Rather than focus backward one what doesn’t matter, let’s use a focus forward on what does —measurable progress.

You now have a beginning point in this timeline, set in 1965.  The next point in the timeline is 2020, and a Daily Mail headline says it all., 5 February 2020
Tuskegee Airman Charles McGee, 100, honored by President Trump during State of the Union as his proud great-grandson and budding Space Force cadet stands by his side

President Donald Trump honored one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen at his State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

General McGee and Great-Grandson

Charles McGee who is 100-years-old, flew more than 135 combat missions during World War II, attacking targets in Italy and helping support the rescue of 1,000 prisoners of war in Romania.

Mr Trump signed a bill promoting Charles McGee from Colonel to Brigadier General and earlier on Tuesday pinned the stars onto his shoulders during a private ceremony at the Oval Office in the White House.

True social change requires generations, and by the grace of years, I’ve lived to witness a profound and magnificent generational shift across these span of years.

With my own eyes, I’ve watched blacks go from the back of the bus to the front of the rocket.

Wow!  Wow!  Wow!

The Future of Race Relations

Next up, I hope to witness the freeing of blacks from the Democrat plantations, these so-called inner-cities, low-income housing projects.  These are desolate places where black families are methodically divided and made dependent on a vote for handouts lifestyle.

Who can show the way?

In the State of the Union address, Patriots witnessed General McGee and his great-grandson standing proudly together.  In that vision, there is a wise imperative — the restoration of black families.

As for Black Lives Matters, they got their fifteen minutes of fame and blew it up, along with a few major American cities.

The time has come for Black Fathers Matter (BFM).
