...Until it sinks in....

Racism (White Supremacy) is mistreatment and domination based on color.

Yes, people of the same color/non-color* mistreat each other on a daily basis throughout the world.

It is correct to describe this behavior as what it is: mistreatment.

On the other hand, Racism (White Supremacy) is a "specific" form of mistreatment that tends to hide in plain sight.

Like on the job.

When a non-white person is asked for their opinion in the decision-making process, only to have their opinion constantly "vetoed" in favor of someone white.

Or the non-white person's authority is repeatedly undermined (by a white person), even when the non-white person is following the rules and guidelines set forth by the company.

Or, when the non-white person receives a reprimand for making a mistake that could have been prevented had they received the same training and assistance afforded to their white colleagues.

The very fact that the overwhelming majority of industry and jobs are dominated and controlled by white persons is Racism.

There is nothing wrong with white people owning and controlling businesses, however, Racism pretends that this majority ownership is simply a natural development in the course of human events. Racism pretends that non-white people had an insignificant role in laying the foundation, literally, for these businesses and industries.

Forty acres and a mule - promised, but not delivered is Racism.

So again, Racism -White Supremacy is a very specific form of mistreatment that says, you're non-white, so you are a candidate for mistreatment and domination based on your color.

ALL mistreatment is incorrect and must be replaced with /justice/.

/JUSTICE/ is:

1. Balance between people,
2. Guaranteeing that no person is mistreated and,
3. Guaranteeing that the person who needs help the most, gets the most help.

/Justice/ is correct.

*White is the non-color i.e. "Colored go to the back of the bus" referred to "people of color"...white people are not colored...

The "State of Georgia" did not execute Troy Davis...

Need evidence?

Ok.

Open a new window or tab.

Go to your favorite online atlas (i.e. mapquest, google earth...) or better, get your globe if you have one.

Locate the "State of Georgia" on the map.

Notice anything?

ANYTHING??

Let me help you.

The "State of Georgia" is simply a landmass on a map (or globe). As such, "The State of Georgia" simply sits there (on the map), day after day, millennium after millennium , doing what ALL "states" (areas of land, trees, rivers) do.

Too simplistic? Too amateurish?
 
Maybe, maybe not.

Let the evidence speak for itself.

Since you're looking at "The State of Georgia" on the map (aren't you?) - ask it this question point blank:

"Did you execute Troy Davis on last night?"

If your map responded in any manner with a yes or no, this exercise is over (for obvious reasons), but my gut tells me that the inanimate object made no response at all....

So what exactly is the point of the exercise?

Glad you asked.

"States" / "countries" / "nations" / "courts" consist of people.

Most of these decision-making people are classified as "white."

The effective majority of these people believe in and practice the religion of "White Supremacy".

I DID NOT SAY THAT THEY ALL DO,  but I DID SAY THAT THE EFFECTIVE MAJORITY DO.

The few that do not are ineffective and statistically  irrelevant as they did not have the power to stop the more powerful white people from executing two people (one "white" and one non-"white") on last night.


"States" (land, trees,& rivers) do not and can not practice non-justice, however, the white people who believe in and practice White Supremacy do.

The first step toward producing /justice/ is recognizing the #1 obstacle in the process.

"Everybody is Racist"

Impossible, and ridiculous -  once you have a real definition for what Racism is and is not.


I could type it out, and later, I likely will, but people would rather watch tv or listen to sermons, speeches, etc so, put this one on  your MP3 player:

The Obstacle To /Justice/ Part I

"If you do not understand White Supremacy (Racism) --- what it is, and how it works --- everything else that you understand, will only confuse you." - Neely Fuller Jr.


Stop.

Read the above quote again.

This time, much slower and preferably out loud.

Why?

Because if you are like most people, you read it, but you didn't really "get it."

I'm equally as guilty.

When I first heard/read the statement, the gravity of those 24 words missed me almost completely.

Why?

Partly because of preconceived notions, but mainly because of ego.

Like many, I assumed I understood what Racism is, after all, I was born and raised in Birmingham, AL...the place where dynamite was used liberally and deliberately to terrorize and murder those that  might upset the status quo.

Little did I know or understand that Racism (being a total System of thought, speech, and action) is exponentially more complex than simply not being able to vote, having to sit in the back of the bus, or having to attend segregated schools.

Sure, most black people will say that they know what Racism is - being the undeniable reality that it is, however, NONE of us truly understand how Racism works.

The evidence?

NONE of us have figured out how to end it.

When you understand how a thing is put together, you also know how to take it apart.

While there are a lot of spokespersons, there are no proven experts on Racism.

Racism is White Supremacy and White Supremacy is Racism and it is THE #1 Obstacle to /justice/  as /justice/ and Racism cannot co-exist.

Stated again:

Racism (White Supremacy) is non-justice, thus /justice/ can not exist while non-justice exists.

Again, this is what /justice/ looks like and without it, /justice/ has not been produced:

1. Balance between people,
2. Guaranteeing that no person is mistreated and,
3. Guaranteeing that the person who needs help the most, gets the most constructive help.

What is Justice?

Succinctly put, /Justice/ is a great idea. Really, it is the greatest idea ever conceived, however, it has(had) one major flaw:

The idea, as popularly stated (i.e. "fairness","moral rightness") , is far too vague for any meaningful and lasting application.

"Justice" is a moving target that differs from one "culture" to the next, and even within the same "culture".

This vagueness allows /justice/ to remain, at best,  unevenly distributed, and at worst, outright denied...just ask Troy DavisUpdate 9/20.

To pin down the moving target that is /justice/, whenever the word /justice/ is used in this blog, I mean the following compensatory definition (as suggested to me by The Compensatory Concept.) :

1. Balance between people,
2. Guaranteeing that no person is mistreated and,
3. Guaranteeing that the person who needs help the most, gets the most constructive help.
 
Presently, /justice/ is only a concept and not the reality.

To bring the concept into reality requires YOUR participation.

Quite possibly, it may be your reason for existence.

/Justice/ Is Correct

"By their very nature, Blogger.com and Blogspot.com may carry offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate material, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. We expect that you will use caution and common sense and exercise proper judgment when using Blogger.com and Blogspot.com..."
I added the italics and the orange color for emphasis.

In a System of Justice, such warnings will be unnecessary, HOWEVER, as we presently exist in a System of Non-Justice, it would be prudent to apply the above suggestion to not only blogger.com, but  EVERYTHING you read, EVERYTHING you see, and EVERYTHING you hear...

/Justice/ Is Correct because  intentionally offensive, harmful, inaccurate, inappropriate, mislabeled, and otherwise deceptive thought, speech, and/or action are all incorrect behaviors.

Why intentionally bring harm (injustice) to another person?
