The United States is comprised of more than 3.8 million square miles of territory and over 325 million people. All told its the third or fourth largest country by total land area and the third most populous country.

Its been 241 years, 10 months, and 25 days since this country became a republic. The financial independence of the country came directly from the backs of the only people who did not arrive in the western hemisphere for a better life, but were kidnapped and taken advantage of creating the wealthiest country in the world and realizing this feat faster than any kingdom in recorded history.

It was not just labor that was stolen from Africa, it also included ages old technologies that were graciously employed by Africans who had been terrorized through the middle passage. Despite the disproportionate wealth grab, misappropriation of funds and greed, the USA remains the worlds largest economy by nominal GDP – the number represents 25 percent of the worlds total economy.

Instead of complimenting and appreciating the contributions of these unfortunate people. There is not a single national holiday that shows appreciation for people who has contributed so much for so little.

We seldom discuss the blatant disrespect displayed by European Americans publicly. The only African America who is celebrated with a national holiday is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. whom I don't have to explain to the people in which I direct my communications. Of the ten national holidays the most controversial would by Columbus day named after Christopher Columbus who was an Italian explorer. Columbus is controversial due to his behavior and intentions for travel. He was under contract of the leaders of Spain seeking wealth. He openly spoke of taking advantage of the kindness of the Native Americans. In short he was a two bit pirate seeking booty.

Europeans have a long history of taking advantage of the kindness of people including Native Americans, African Americans and Women and Children. Its time we discuss the problem as it exists.

Many people talk about the American dream, but for most the American dream is to have an equal opportunity and to prosper through hard work determination and initiative. However that is not why most people who reclassify themselves as white come to this place. They come claim something for nothing and we must say in this place if something is not right it must be deemed by the greater community as unacceptable.

Veterans is my second favorite holiday along with memorial day that we celebrated on Monday.

From a social media missive this is what Donald Trump the 45thpresident of the United States had to say about Memorial Day. 

“Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!”

This must end, White Supremacy must end and the ideals of democracy have to be re-instituted.

I applaud today's effort by Starbucks to institute sensitivity training but more must happen, we cannot settle for token changes in leiu of substantive change.  

If you want White Supremacy to stand then get off your lazy ass and earn it, and stop depending on others to do work for your financial benefit. Wake up people spend your money with people who appreciate your patronage.
