What does the statue symbolize? All this anger surrounding the removal of some statues is amazing to me. Do these people realize a woman has lost her life because a person became insanely upset over a statue? How many of them actually knew who Robert E. Lee was before it was decided to remove his statue? Did you celebrate Robert E. Lee’s accomplishments? Did Robert E. Lee have a positive effect on America?
These statues and flags are symbols of hate and separation, so why are they so important to these people? All these symbols that they idolize are symbols of losers. Why do people who believe that they are superior and they are the superior race choose symbols that reflect inferior, sadistic individuals? Well, maybe they are attracted to the sadistic aspect of the individuals. These people carry the Nazi flag but Germans do not idolize Nazism. Hitler is regarded as one of the evilest men to walk the face of the earth and this is the person you choose to align yourself with? I believe this questions their humanity and civility. Ironically, in my opinion, most of these people who are in support of these statues and other symbols of hate are cowards. I remember growing up the Neo-Nazis and Skin Heads being vicious people who were willing to kill and die for what they believe in. These new alt-right people appear to be cowards, many of them crying about getting arrested and claiming to be law-abiding citizens when approached by authorities. I think many of them join these groups to be a part of something because they believe there is no other place in America for them. That’s maybe the reason they idolize Robert E. Lee because instead of dying on the battlefield he surrenders like a coward.
If all your symbols are losers does that mean you are destined to lose? The world is comprised of people of color, so instead of trying to kill us and keep us oppressed, they should give it up because they are outnumbered. Hopefully, the day will come when they realize black people are not their enemy.
With the election of Barack Obama, it was thought that America has made advances on race but are we absolutely sure that country has made advances? Has the election of Obama created more hate groups or White Supremacist Groups? Has the election of Obama created more racial tension in America? I ask these question because after the events that have taken place in Charlottesville Virginia this weekend it seems like there have not been any advancements. As many have stated in was reminiscent of the 60’s.
Obama won the popular vote during each election based on these results this meant that the majority of the country saw past race and voted for whom they believed was the best candidate. The election of Obama was a historical event, I think many people thought this was a huge advancement in race relations in this country but it seems that a small of a fraction of the country was not pleased by this. I do not have statistical data or historical data to back my opinion but it appears to me that the racial tension has escalated with the election of Obama. The killings of unarmed black people seem to have increased but one can argue these killings have always taken place and the introduction of social media has just made us more aware of these incidents. It seems the number of hate groups, Neo-Nazi, White Supremacist and Alt-Right organization have increased or have become more visible since Obama’s election. The election of Donald Trump has also fueled many of these groups, they believe they have an ally in Trump. Trump cabinets would suggest that they do have an ally, his remarks regarding the tragedy in Charlottesville suggest they have an ally. Regardless of who is aligned with whom we must be prepared for whatever is coming.
We all thought the election of Barack Obama meant the pendulum of racism had swung to the side of righteous, equality, and love of all mankind now it seems that the pendulum has swung back to the side of evil, hate, and inhumane thinking. Will the pendulum swing back or are we stuck in evil and hate? If we are stuck will this be the end of America?
