A LOSING GROUP, OR SOMETHING LIKE IT: WHAT HAVE THE WHITE POPULATION REALLY LOST?

“Seems more about control than identity.”


White Nationalist, Neo-Nazi, KKK, Alt-Right, skinheads; whatever you want to call them. There have been this idea that the White population is losing out here in America. Do I personally believe the hype when I look at the social, economic, political, and educational gaps, no. But I am a man who looks at things in life from a very practical stance. So in order for me to argue against the point of what a White man has lost, let’s look at the perspective of the man upset. This is where there is this uncomfortable feeling because I know it’s ridiculous. The White man’s unfair history in America, but nonetheless, I am taking a firm observation of what could be seen as lost. So, here goes nothing.

The United States gained its Independence from Great Britain in 1776, and the Constitution was drafted up in 1788. During this entire time, the men who sat around the table making the decisions for the future direction of the country were all White males. The Declaration and the Constitution were supposed to be affirmation that this land belonged to the American Whites, well those in a much higher position, and everyone else would be taking the lead of them. United States Declaration of Independence.jpgSo with the ending of slavery in 1865, which was a result of Abraham Lincoln signing the Emancipation Proclamation, there was now a new shift in America. Now, these men and women who were once property, were now in a position to work, vote, and attain education. A move that a lot of White men and women deemed a setback to their own progress.

You might ask, how so? Well, even the poorest of White men and women still had the upper hand over Black people during that time in America. This was not done to make them feel this was their country, it was done to keep a tightly knit system together. Those White Image result for jim crowmen and women making decisions didn’t care about the poorest of White people just as much as they didn’t care about Black people. Yet, in keeping with that tightly knit system, Jim Crow came out of slavery ending. Now what’s interesting, is that outside of the South, a lot of people never really knew the lengths to which Jim Crow had a certain fear instilled in a group of people. But nonetheless, it allowed even the poorest and uneducated White men and women a position over their Black counterparts.

Jim Crow held on for nearly 100 years until Black people felt pushed to a point of nothing to lose. The Civil Rights Movement had started earlier, but the height of the movement during the 1950’s and 1960’s saw a threat once again to that White establishment of control. Related imageNow don’t get me wrong, there were quite a few White men and women who fought with the movement and some even died themselves. Yet there was still a loud voice coming from the White community regarding ending Jim Crow. Jim Crow eventually ended, yet the fight did not and has not stopped. Which leads us until today. Now there are these conversations again from White men and women on what has been lost.

Now, that I have done a brief overview of American history. Here is what has alleged to be lost. Jobs are being taken from Whites. Wrong, corporations have removed these jobs and taken them overseas to save pennies, by other White men and women in power. Education is being high-jacked from White men and women. Wrong, as a matter of fact the Black community are constantly pushing ways to get more of our children to go to school each year. Foreigners are being accepted into top Ivy League schools, but not pushing out Whites. More so being accepted by predominantly White institutions by White people. Well, what about voices not being heard. Well, yet again not true. When Trump won, there was a large population of White conservatives who voted not just him, but a whole system of White right leaning men.

And that’s what brings me to the real aspect of what could be lost. See, former president Barack H. Obama lead this nation for 8 years. People say he caused this mass hysteria, but not true. See, the relationship Image result for barack obamabetween Black and White in America has been one of a dog owner and dog. We love our dogs because they obey us. We give them a treat and they roll over and perform tricks. That’s until dogs start to demand the same treatment as the owner. Now the owner remembers a time when you had to roll over and fetch treats. And that feeling is now gone and being lost. Because White people still lead the pack in wealth, education, politics, and the list goes on. But what is a feeling of going away is control, and to add to it, competition.

And in the end, that is the fear that is slowly being exposed. See, America created this superiority mind frame in a group of people. And superiority is not only a supreme view of self, but ultimate control over someone or groups of people. And when the command is not followed, there must be punishment. Yet the underlying issue with the word superior, is the control factor. People don’t aim at trying to control dogs because we are more superior than the dog. A dog can’t build a nuke, a dog can’t shoot a gun, or fist fight. So we have nothing to fear, let them run wild because a cute little treat will calm them. But when a group is made to feel superior and that construct is broken down they feel worthless. Which is why this ideology of an all White America is actually ridiculous. Because superiority extends itself to control and commands. Without a minority group serving as a buffer in the middle, slowly but surely that control and command turns on itself. America has created a problem for itself, and will just have to deal with the fact that a psychological ugliness was designed to control, not just minorities, but White people as well.

ROME IS BURNING: THE RAPID DECLINE OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

Image result for trump administration

“Everything is starting to fall.”


Since President Donald J. Trump have been elected in November of 2016, he has consistently been in the news. And now there’s a new story, adding to the already mass media hysteria. This time it’s for two incidents: the first being the Neo-Nazi/White Nationalist march in Virginia and now the firing of his Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. This now the third person who has publically been fired or stepped down from the Trump administration. The first being his former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, then his Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, and now Steve Bannon. Now the question is, whose next on the list of people stepping down. And will it eventually get to the president of the United States?

Well, there are key people who have been in the news that could be next in line to be removed from their positions. The next could be the United States Secretary of Education Betsy Devos. She has taken criticism because of her stance on how Image result for devoseducation should be dealt with in public schools. One of her stance that people took issue to was student choice programs. She felt that students should be able to use tax payer money as vouchers to attend private schools. A move that could hurt a lot of good educators. Because what parent wouldn’t want their child to receive a good education. But since we have more public than private schools it would a lot of students who don’t qualify for certain schools as well.

She also drew criticism from the Black community stating that HBCU’s were the model for choice schools. Crazy statement to make considering Black people had no choice but to create HBUC’s because we were not allowed to go to school with Related imageWhite students. And within this statement she made similar claims of leaving it up to the states in whether public schools could use federal tax dollars to discriminate against certain students from certain demographics. So she could be next on the list to be removed from Trump’s administration. But is there anyone else on the list? In my opinion, Vice President Mike Pence position is fine and attorney general Jeff Sessions; as well as Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. The next after Devos will be Trump’s son-in-law, and the duty his daughter serves.

See, Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who not only serves as Trump’s Senior Advisor, but he’s also the husband of Ivanka Trump. Ivanka is Donald’s Advisor in the White House, which is a serious conflict of interest. Jared Kushner comes from a prominent real estate family, and his role as Senior White House Advisor Related imagemakes his role a conflict of interest with his family  business. He also came under attack for his meetings with Russian officials during Trump’s presidential run. Now his daughter Ivanka came under criticism for him appointing his child as his advisor before she stepped down as the face of her own jewelry brand. Both of these people being forced to step down could cause Trump to falter. Not to mention another advisor to Trump Kelly Ann Conway. He could begin to make even more vital mistakes.

And in the end, I feel this is how the government plans on getting Trump out of office. Break down everyone he has appointed. Then the people he trust most, force them out. Now he’s surrounded by nothing but government people he does not know, nor does he want to communicate with on any level. He’ll be gone, andRelated image Pence could step into his position, with Paul Ryan as the acting Vice President. New faces would come into play, and America would go back to business as usual. Which is what the system was supposed to have been, but Trump won. And he should really buckle down, otherwise we could see another president forced out for the first time in almost 20 years since Bill Clinton was impeached.

A NATION IN LIMBO: HOW SATISFIED ARE YOU WITH THE PRESIDENCY IN AMERICA SO FAR

Image result for donald trump president

“Only 15% into the term, yet so many problems.”


Since the presidential inauguration of Donald J. Trump as our Commander in Chief, there has been constant controversy around his presidency. From the comments he’s made that were deemed insensitive, to the link between him and Russia in an alleged tampering with the election. Now, there is even more controversy, this time circling the appointment of the new Communications Image result for trump inaugurationDirector Anthony Scaramucci. The former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer recently stepped down amidst the bringing in of Scaramucci. But it hasn’t been a full two weeks and Scaramucci has already stepped down already himself. The first story came out regarding his filing for divorce, then him stepping down. So now my question is, what will happen next in this administration?

While all this controversy is going on, we still have a nation with high unemployment, and people are becoming frustrated. Yet if Trump can’t shake the Russian controversy, fix the healthcare bill, nor maintain the travel ban, how will he fix employment. He made a statement regarding employment that he would levy tax on corporations shipping jobs overseas of 35% if they weren’t bent on Image result for american unemploymentreturning those jobs home. But with the world moving more in an automated direction, there is no purpose to preserve the industrialization of America. And I don’t know why the United States is stuck on factories anyways. This isn’t the 1900’s, we are in a more tech savvy environment. We need more engineers, managers, operational people, information driven people, and marketers.

But the American population, especially people in select regions don’t want to hear any of it. And a lot of these places for years heavily depended on the factories for a living. Only problem is that there are cheaper methods of building in our world today. And in order for America to stay competitive in the market, we can’t Image result for american factoriesgo back. Still, Trump supporters would say that this is just more liberal bull. That America can bring jobs back. But anyone that knows even a basic understanding
of the market knows this is false. For example, the priceless metals in our cell phone is in countries not indigenous to America. So if America bring factories here making cell phones, then labor drives prices up. Two things would happen: 1) Americans would have to spend more for items that they already struggle paying for now; 2) other countries can outbid America for raw materials.

So what do you do when China wants to make a cell phone. They charge few dollars and hour for labor. Since they do so, they can charges pennies and still Related imagemake a profit to stay in business. It takes $30, $40, and even $50 per hour to raise a family. Can you imagine how much a company wold have to charge for cell phone to recoup what’s lost for American made products just because of labor. So now you’re talking an iPhone made in America would skyrocket. Trust and believe people are buying the Chinese bought product. Because a large part comes down to labor; labor is just cheaper outside of America. Meaning America will have to change from an industrialized to an informational country. We have always been ahead of the curve for so long, and going backward won’t help.

In the end, Trump has made some pretty serious promises. But the biggest is not the healthcare, nor is it the borders. Trying to force company’s hands over jobs is going to be impossible. Because if the government won’t listen to him on the travel ban, then he’s not getting through with the 35% tax on companies. So now it’s a waiting game. People’s fingers are crossed, hoping for something, anything to happen.

THE KINGDOM IS FALLING: HOW AMERICA COULD BECOME NAZI GERMANY

Image result for american congress

“If politicians don’t stand by their word, someone else will.”


We promise to build schools, create jobs, fix the healthcare problems, stop crime, and keep our borders safe. These are the same old words spoken from the mouths of politicians every election cycle. They stand in front of the podium, make promises that will never be delivered. They collect our tax dollars, then tell us to give back to our communities. Then they get elected and you never see them again. This has become all too common, but no matter how much they lie, we continue to follow them. We run out and cast our vote, then wait for things to happen. But nothing of the like transpires. They sit in their comfortable positions and retain the job until the next person comes along.

Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but this madness has to make you stop and think to yourself, “Why vote?” But is there something that could eventually take hold from all of these promises that are never delivered. What about the leadership of a person who is far more sinister than anyRelated image other leader we’ve had past of present. Everyone is going crazy over the presidential election of Donald J. Trump, but is he the real problem. In my opinion, he’s not the real threat. The real threat is the guy who may pop up next. People are getting more and more desperate. Could we see another dictator, this time rising into power in America?

Now it sounds crazy, but when people are desperate they make some pretty crass decisions. Trump was that guy people voted for out desperation. You might ask yourself, why would a country vote a man with no political experience into the White House? Because America for the longest was a leader in manufacturing. We produced automobiles that were the backbone of a nation, as well as coal and other mined minerals. But in this modern era, there is no room for this old school method of growing a nation. We are more in an automated global economy. But what happens to all those people who depended on these industrialized jobs?

I’ll tell you what happens to these people, they lose out. They don’t know how to work a computer, or build anything that is of use in this new time period. So what now, entire regions of the country, mainly the Midwest, depended on these jobs. So here is where Trump steps into the equation. He

says bring back manufacturing jobs from China, and everyone cheers. Yet they don’t understand the global economy. And if they did, they would know that this is impossible. So what happens if he can’t bring those jobs back to the country? And now you have even more desperation from people.

You would think people would rush to learn and understand the new methods. But they are so set in their ways, it’s hard to learn anything new. So what do they do, sit and wait. Hoping something will change, but it won’t. If the wrong person is able to speak, almost in a Hitler esque manner to the people, he could rise into power. Because people are starting to get that desperate, that even a fascist dictator could be leader as long as he stood by his word. And you never want people electing this type of person, just because he’s honest in speech, yet hateful in intentions.

And unlike the continent of Europe, where America and other allied forces intervened. Who would intervene into our crisis? It sounds crazy, but we also never thought Trump would be the leader of the country either. So watching him grace the stage proves people’s desperation. He in my opinionImage result for american divide is not a fascist by any stretch of the imagination. But the idea people would elect him out of desperation leads me to believe we are heading in that direction. And in the end, that’s my discomfort. We like to say oh well, people have to adjust to the new changes in America. But if they can’t and stand behind someone not in the nation’s best interest, we may all suffer.

AMERIREICH: HOW RESTRICTING OUR RIGHTS COULD LEAD TO A NAZI GERMANY

Image result for usa flag

“Do you feel overtaken?”


In the United States today, more than ever before the control over ones language and what is allowed to say and not say has become problematic. And coupled with the inability for those in power to be honest, America could find itself in a world like a Nazi Germany. Now do I think there will be concentration camps and extermination, no. But I do think that certain aspects of the power structure such as disregarding media can happen. Focusing blame on a centralized group of people or ideology can happen. As far as the extermination, the masses will do that to themselves. And with little trust in media, how would you believe anything is really going on.

The people who are elected to power could cause this to happen. When you have people making promises that are not delivered as well as restricting people’s ability to express themselves how they want, it opens the door for bad leadership. People feel like they gave lost their voice and they become desperate. They become  so desperate that they’ll elect someone to office no matter how bad the ideas. As long as the person follows through with their policies, they’ll follow them. While at the same time, you’re given freedoms restricted by previous people in power.

For instance, we have become sensitive to language. Now you have people in charge telling you what you can and cannot say. Then if you go against the grain, you lose everything you’ve worked for in life. This new person comes along and does not restrict language. No matter how bad the language, we stand behind them because they gives us this ability. And while we have this ability, he/she also delivers on his/her promises. They can do no wrong in the eyes of the masses. Yet, what they’re doing really might not be in the best interest of the people. This is how radicals rise to power in civilizations. The previous way creates desperation in people that they’ll vote anyone who aligns themselves with their agenda.

Well why, why would this awful person rise to power. It can’t be all about the language and not holding up their end of the bargain. See, in my opinion, it all boils down to transparency. If you live in a nation where transparency is lacking, then a bad leader can infiltrate. An awful leader infiltrating the system can lead to an even more detrimental society. It will seem like they are for the people, but in reality they have their own agenda that benefits them. Pushing their causes and discrediting media for going against it. And since the confidence in media has diminished, the leader will now have greater control with less checks and balances.

See, in the end, restricting ones’ abilities to live freely while also not holding up your end of the bargain politically, will cause chaos in society. The type of chaos which could lead to a dictator coming into a system. Creating policies that are more harmful than helpful. But transparency is key; key to society rising or falling.

THE DONALD: WHY HE’S RELEVANT!

Image result for donald j trump

“The things we hate most about him.”

Make America Great Again! This is the exclamation that has been the premise for the 2016 election run for Republican and Presidential hopeful Donald J. Trump. He, over the past year, has what some call made some pretty inflammatory comments. But, if the comments from Donald are so inflammatory, then why has he not slowed down? He is not only still in the race, but has gotten stronger. What is it about Donald Trump that resonates with so many people? Well let’s start off by the comments that have people so upset.

In the beginning, Donald Trump was this fresh, new look into the Republican party. He is a television personality and business executive, not a politician. All the others were career politicians, with the exception of Ben Carson who is a physician. Initially, his comments excited people overall because he was seen as entertaining. But once he ventured into the social, that’s when everything changed. Trump’s comments regarding the Hispanic community as well as Muslims is what got the ball bouncing for the tension. But conversely, Trump gained an even larger fan base.

Well what was it? What has caused people to be on the side of Trump? Well, in my opinion, it’s the same reason why his opponents dislike him. For starters you have society push back against Trump. The communities that he has spoken of the most have protested him since the beginning. Mainly the Hispanic community regarding illegal immigration and his issue with radical Islam. Then he stated he felt more law enforcement is needed in already divided inner cities of Black communities. Now, all the celebrities are coming out as well.

But what is the biggest fear regarding Trump. It can’t be the fear he’s going to harm a lot of people. There is so many steps you have to go through to get anything accomplished in our government, that the odds of him doing what everyone fears is slim. No, our fear lies in the fact that Trump actually is a representation of us. Now you might go us, with everything he has said. But he truly is all of us. So where is the proof of it. I came to this conclusion the more public figures came out.

First with the Hollywood crowd that labeled Trump as a racist. Well hold the phone. Aren’t these celebs in an industry where a movie has a hard time receiving the budget because of the ethnic group in the film. So how can you point the finger at this guy and not address the individuals over here. They judged Trump for his misogynistic comments toward women, but these same people will tell a woman she’s not qualified for a movie role because of her age. It’s like they talk the ultra liberal agenda, but don’t live by it. Speaking of women, even professional athletes have stepped forward. Oddly enough, these same athletes have over 90% divorce rates in their leagues due to infidelity. Or the fact that  these men can’t wait to settle into their hotels whenever on the road, so they can enjoy the local strip clubs. Or our musicians who put together lyrics expressing their own sexual conquest of women.

So why has society become this dishonest. Like I said before, he is actually us. We disagree with what Trump says, but it is not foreign to the ear. Meaning, had he have said Muslims need to be enslaved or placed in concentration camps, there would be more outrage. Why, well this view is foreign to us in America because we don’t live that way anymore. Until it is foreign to the ear what he says, then he or guys like him will always have relevance. You see, Donald Trump is one big mirror. So every time he speaks there is an aspect I see of him in everyone. Instead of saying we all do say these things, and work to fix them, we act as if they don’t exist or never heard of them.

And that is why his presidential run is so strong. News journalists ask questions regarding something that Trump has said or done and get the PC reply. And the reply is so obvious that it’s a lie, his following gets stronger. He is karma for dishonest people. If America was honest with itself, he wouldn’t be around. But for some reason, you can’t get people to see themselves. So he is not what the country does not need, he is a true representation of what America really stands for under the surface. So when he says things I go, oh, ok. There is no real reaction because the outrage is not consistent throughout society.

In the end, even though I am not a Trump supporter, I get the lure. People are frustrated with not only the employment market, but the social landscape of America. People are irritated at how we refuse to not be honest. But most of all, people are mad because they want to be honest, but anything will get you labeled in today’s society. My view is that as long as people talk in soundbites and tip toe around responses there will always be a Trump. He is necessary; whether you like him or not, his presidential run is necessary.
