Broken Down by Demographics

`

Preface: The finest, fair, foolproof method to honestly evaluate humankind involves one, particular demographic; namely, the determination of GOOD or EVIL. This is not about “playing God”; it’s a matter of indulging one’s survival instinct. To appraise a person, based upon far less meaningful characteristics, typically, invites unwelcome discriminatory practices; the type which also necessitate the more in depth blog, that follows…

Up till June 19, 1865, African-Americans, enslaved in Texas, had not even heard of President Abraham Lincoln’s January 1, 1863 Emancipation Proclamation; which, in part, stated ”all persons held as slaves” (within the rebellious states) “are, and henceforward shall be free.” Alas, even honest Abe got bogged down by parentheticals, which in this instance, resulted in ALL not meaning ALL [read full text here].

Leaping forward, approximately a century and a half, to just yesterday, President Joe Biden signed into law the (mostly) bipartisan legislation, which this Saturday and henceforward, shall make June 19th (Juneteenth) a Federal Holiday.

The good news: We actually discovered that the U.S. Senate, in a rare moment of bipartisanship, had unanimously given this proposal their thumbs up.

The bad news: For no good reason, at all, 14 good-for-nothing U.S. Representatives thumbed their noses.

Such naysayers (and the constituents they suck up to), in all likelihood, were not ready to shed their (figurative?) white robes / hoods and brown shirts / swastika emblazoned accoutrements; such butt ugly attitudes and gaudy apparel already situating them on the wrong side of history.

To cut to the chase: When anyone allows society to be broken down by discriminatory demographics (e.g. skin melanin content), the phrase “broken down”, inherently, fleshes out the very conundrum, which has sickened American society; dating all the way back to 1619, when slave trader mariners first came ashore in North America.

Suffice to say, for us to wish African-Americans “Happy Juneteenth”, will serve more as the welcomed, long overdue morale booster than afford a sorely needed curative to the five centuries old bigotry / chronic mental illness that still afflicts our homeland.

Blameworthy, by and large, are the right wing extremist power junkies, who shamelessly prop up their entire, pathetic, political careers by promoting, provoking and prolonging systemic racism; all for the express purpose of pandering to their deplorable voter base.
