Greetings Brethren,

 

Peace be unto you. There are so many diverse and varied people that walk and crawl upon the land called earth. However there will always be those in every group that see not the Godly sentiment of “no respecter of persons.” Therefore who are dismayed and surprised at statements called out about race? Black, White, Brown, Red and Yellow have often bowed to mere moments of reality as they reveal what the world has rendered to be custom, and tradition.

 

Will They Eat Cake Or Corn Bread?

 

The world is consumed with very little

pity and benevolence for those that have

been used as cannon fodder and tyrannized

for labor, diamonds, gold and land.

 

All of humankind thus have a culture a

ethnic lineage and past. A diverse group

believe that certain things like spirituals

brought on blues and then jazz.

 

Tolerance to some took on a new birth as

peace and good-will to all became in vogue.

Just who could bring all of human-kind

together to love and respect each other?

 

Meanwhile realities cast their lot. Some lived

with a legacy of servitude and race took

hold. The campaign to be superior still lingered

in the hearts and minds of a myriad of people.

 

Inferiority as a complex also loomed ahead

of countless human souls that had been historically

down-trodden. So were the realities of Sam-Bo

and those that stepped and fetched the Ham-Bone.

 

However all did not relish and savor hog

guts, pig feet, pig ears, pig tails, mountain oysters and

hog head cheese as delicacies for all that came

from “The Land of the Blacks.”

 

All these people also could not sing and dance.

Some knew rhythm but missed the beat. A

multifarious number also were black, brown,

yellow and light skin. Some also had good hair.

 

Good hair, bad hair, black, mulatto and brown

as some in sundry times were perceived by many outside

and inside as smart, and suited for house chores

while Black Willie and Nappy head Annie worked the field.

 

Peace and Paradise,

Dr. Carl A. Patton writing for the FreedomJournal Press 11 January 2010 in the year of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
