…ok…so I’m not gon’ argue with people about fake history or statues. We all know the south lost; as evidenced by “These United States of America”…
So, I say to their statues, we add a few other statues too. You know, like the nativity scenes of baby Jesus at Christmas–with the wise men, those lil’ sheep and cows, and Joseph and Mary hangin’ around him.
Only these scenes will be different. These scenes will be their southern heroes surrounded by Union and black Soldiers coming to whoop that arse… “Thew the fog!” (like they said in the movie Glory)…lol
If they want to remember history, then it should and needs to be remembered correctly–not as fantasy or some half-told truth. I believe this is the correct way to fight against those who try to create false narratives and divide us. We should stop wasting time, energy and money playing into their game. Change the rules. Return it to your favor. Enough is enough. It’s not a black/white thing. Neither is it a southern thing. It’s ignorance. And ignorance is not bliss. It’s ignorance.
I know and have met people of many cultures and I generally consider them all as friends. If I do have a bad experience with someone, I try hard not to attribute it to the entire group. It’s just that person, or that dude I got a problem with. It’s time to move on past the noise and start solving real problems… replacing bum-ass congress people as we go; regardless of their party. If we could do that, change would truly happen. Agreed?
Ok… that’s my soapbox speech for tonight…now, y’all go to a brother’s website and see some of the other stuff I do 😉 http://www.DanielSpeller.info . Thanks!
