 157 years ago …

in 1863 Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Part of it reads: 
And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self defence, and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for reasonable wages.”

I am not a historian but even I can see, in that one paragraph, two pronouncements that, although legal and part of our heritage, have been ignored for years.  Can we blame our black brothers and sisters for finally running out of patience? In my 87 years I have never seen a time that they have been equal. 

I am sick to death of the white radicals with their cries that “the blacks are taking over”. It's about time that our young nation grows up ! We are world citizens … not a cut off society. With the closing of our borders we've become a boring, childish and uncaring nation whose only interests seem to be the complete absorption of our fragile egos and the almighty dollar.

Come on everybody … let's see some maturity and a showing of understanding and love for ALL the people that we live with. Where is your sense of justice ?  The "have nots" in our country have NEVER been given the chance they deserve and you can rightly put the blame on the white majority. 

Now for those of you who read this and think it's just the ramblings of an old lady maybe this will catch your attention … the WHITE MAJORITY is FADING and fading fast!  Where will you be when we whites are no longer in charge?  

I find it very interesting that the pandemic is making the plight of the underprivileged crystal clear to everyone. They are being hit harder than any other group and it's a wake up call for us all. It's also of interest that, despite what the present administration says, our country, along with the UK and a few others, leads all other countries in the world when it comes to inequality.

This morning, I'm reading comments blaming the 75-year-old man knocked to the pavement and bleeding from the ear and back of the skull and accusing him of setting up the whole thing. One person expresses his suspicion, writing, "How does a person begin bleeding from the ear immediately?" A 20-year-old black Texas State student lies unconscious in a hospital after his skull was fractured by a bean bag shot at his head "not intended for him," the hit not intended for him, the officers reported. I'm viewing this three weeks after my 16-year-old granddaughter collapsed and fell in the family's kitchen, fracturing her skull and temporal bone, bleeding immediately from the ear. She had a brain bleed and was intubated at the hospital because she was having seizures and stopped breathing, her heart in bradycardia. She was transferred to another hospital because her condition was so critical. Fortunately, she regained consciousness quickly, but three weeks later, she still cannot continue regular activities without prompting vomiting, dizziness, and a raging headache. The bleeding from her ear was caused because the temporal bone was fractured in many places and tore the temporal membrane, which meant that she would lose much or all hearing in that ear . . . except that she's already profoundly deaf. Like that older man, but in her case due to her already diagnosed inability to tell when she's falling or fainting, she fell straight back. It sickens me to know that other families are going through this, perhaps with worse results than hers and that some will find a way to blame the people harmed.
