All the Beautiful Things
People who are racist against blacks and other POCs (People of Color) always brag about their inventions and there technology. They love to say that we invented nothing of note, that we would still be living in the dark ages if it wasn’t for them, that we are lovers of violence and strife. But that is not true. People of color are the inventors and keepers of all things beautiful! We are keepers of nature, inventors of dance, music, poetry, and all of the world’s religions were born from us.
We didn’t invent guns, nuclear bombs, cruel systems of slavery, hate based on the color of one’s skin, laws that oppress people, pesticides and pollutants that kill our earth, and a system of hate so cruel that nearly all the world is negatively affected by their standards of beauty. How evil is it to demonize and vilify people for having big noses, flat noses, full lips, dark skin, kinky hair, almond shaped eyes, and full bodies when that is the way God created them? Who are you to call God’s creation, of which he populated majority of the earth with, ugly or unattractive for not having features you deem beautiful?
In the lands that God placed us in, we soared until you came with guns, ships, diseases, and wars. We lived in tune with nature. We didn’t rape it for luxuries but we respected it for nourishing us, healing us, and sheltering us. Perhaps nature is your enemy because even the healing, beautiful, light giving, and life giving sun is dangerous to you. Even when nature gave you a barrier called the ozone layer, you destroyed that too. Your invents, your guns, your bombs, have killed millions of people while our dances, our music, and our food made from the soul has created millions of smiles, encouraged laughter, and created a universal connection among people. Say what you will about out seemingly sexual gyrations but even blond haired German girls are twerking to hip hop. Your music is soulless and depend on beautiful words to evoke emotions. No soul can sit still at the beat of an ethnic drum, however, no words needed. You can feel those beats in your soul from the slow rhythmic beats of the native drum to the fast pulsations of the African drum. It makes your soul dance first and your body is forced to follow.
How can you brag about being superior or bigoted? How can you sit quietly in church on Sunday morning with a white Jesus hanging on the wall? A white lie created to oppress. You are not Christian. Christ was a person of color. He would not hate himself. He would not hate his ancestors. He would not hate his own people. You try to wash the world white to create a fantasy world in which you are the hero but no one believes it except you. That is why you lie about religion, you lie about history, you lie about intelligence, you lie about science, you lie so much yet your guilt remains. It will always be there until you live in truth and admit that you created a disease on the world’s people called whiteness.
You brag about all the material possession you own and the luxuries you have but they would not even be available to you if it wasn’t for our lands. Gold, diamonds, and oil stolen from Africa, American Natives, and Arab lands. You took and continue to take all that is precious from Africa, even its people, and have the nerve to tell people to go back there after you have filled her with oppression, the AIDS virus you created, and talk about it as if it was not whiteness that destroyed her. Africa is our mother but I am not so sure if she is yours. To a child of color, mother is like a god. There is nothing that will start a fight quicker to us than an attack on our mothers because it was she that birthed us, healed us, and feed us. But like an infant snatched away from a mother’s tit too soon, we lost our connection when you took us away. We lost our roots, our language, and our love for our mother. You changed us and her so much that we don’t recognize each other anymore. You tore us from our mother Africa and brought us to your stolen lands that ran with the blood of million that you killed with hate and filthy diseases.
In slavery, you continued to tear families apart. How dare you deny that has to effect on us today? I understand you don’t like talking about slavery because no one wants to talk about their crimes over and over again. But most crimes don’t last 400 years and counting so fuck your minority crime stats. Referring to Satan, Jesus said that “the thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10). That sounds very familiar to what has happened to my people in generation after generation proving that the system of whiteness and racism is of evil and Satan himself.
There are 5 main characteristic of Satan as described in the Bible.
1. The Devil is a Deceiver
If Satan’s primary motivation is destruction, his primary method is deception. Though he comes to destroy, he appears as an angel of light (see 2 Corinthians 11:14).
Was it not you who has destroyed many people and nations in the name of war and acquiring land? Then you turn around and create lies to justify it. You came to Africa for trade and to so called make them civilized and you came to America and would have died if it was not for the natives there, yet you turned on them both. You were no angel of light, you came to destroy and destroy you did.
2. The Devil is a Tempter
One of the names given to the devil in the Bible is “the tempter” (see Matthew 4:3 and 1 Thessalonians 3:5). Satan works in conjunction with the world system and the sinful nature of man to constantly bring temptation into people’s lives.
Was it not you who has tempted so many people with promises of riches and fame only to destroy them? Who tempt the poor with your dead end welfare systems as if it is temporary assistance but it is designed to keep them in poverty? To tempt people into to thinking that if they become more culturally white that you will finally treat them as equals despite their dark skin and ethnic features?
3. The Devil is a Thief
In John 10:10, Jesus referred to the devil as “the thief.” Satan loves to steal from people the things that God has intended for them. He steals joy, hope, life, love, health, and destiny.
Was it not you who have stolen on a global level yet demonize a few black people and label them thieves for the actions of a few? You have stolen even human beings. Like Satan, you steal joy, hope, life, love, health, and destiny from millions and millions of brown, black, red, and yellow people every day.
4. The Devil is a Murderer
Jesus also referred to the devil as a murderer, saying in John 8:44 that “he was a murderer from the beginning.”
No one has murdered more than you. There is violence in the inner cities but I bet no guy named Tyrone has ever had eight bodies hiding in his freezer, walked in a school to shoot every person crossing his path, nor shot up a school full of innocent children. No one black, native, or Arab has done any in-depth studies on men that are serial killers because we don’t celebrate and fascinate over sick minds. You won’t find POCs making shooting targets out of murdered, unarmed kids, you can’t name one black person that became rich or famous for murdering a child, and you certainly can’t name many that are walking around free right now. Please don’t say OJ we believe he did it too and was just as shocked when he got off.
5. The Devil is a Distorter
The devil is not a creator; instead he takes what God has created and perverts it.
As I stated before, you are not true creators. You have stolen most of what you say you created. God has created so great and wonderful things in this world yet you take it and use it for evil, especially the things of nature and his people.
The whiteness in you must be killed. The whiteness in this society needs to be wiped out. You hold on to it so tightly because you feel as if any power achieved by people in color is a threat to your privilege. You are right. It is a threat to the system that was born of racism. If I were chosen first for everything and labeled the smartest, the most beautiful, the most talented, the most valuable; I wouldn’t want it to end either. However, the human in me would cringe if I thought for a moment that all those things came at a price that caused people to be oppressed; caused people their lives, freedom, ability to support themselves; caused fear; or even a moment of hurt and pain, I would gladly earn a higher place in society based on my character rather than my skin.
But…. I wonder if racist are even human or just evil spirits in human form.
