There has been a lot of talk and controversy in the United States about “Illegal Aliens.” Let’s look at this issue from a different standpoint. When you think about this topic the true illegals are those that Colonized Africa, The Americas, India, The West Indies aka The Caribbean and Australia. At what point in history were Europeans invited to steal other people’s lands, destroy their culture and enslave the people already living there? Never! Europeans took all these lands by force, forced their religion onto people, brainwashed and subjugated them. Then to add insult to injury Europeans claimed they “discovered” these countries and continents. Europeans claimed to bring civilization to these lands! Obviously nothing could be further from the truth as all colonized countries had their own civilizations which in some cases were much more developed that any in Europe.
Parts of what we now know as the Southwest United States were part of Mexico. Through Manifest Destiny plus outright greed and violence Europeans annexed these territories in the name of their European God. When the white man set foot in the Americas they had the Bible and the Indigenous peoples had the land. Now the white man has the Land the the Indigenous peoples have the Bible along with all the poverty, disease, self-hate and destruction that came with Euro-Centric Christianity.
Entire Native American tribes were given blankets infected with small pox or just plain shot and murdered just so the so-called Settlers could steal their land! Millions of Africans were stolen from Africa and sold into Slavery to benefit the slave-owners. Both Native Americans and Africans were stripped of their cultures, religions, way of life because we were deemed to be “savages and heathens.”
Read about the Indian schools established in the 19th & 20th Centuries where Native American children were sent to learn the way of the white man. At least now many Native Americans are returning to their roots including their own religious beliefs. African Americans are looking to Africa and our African belief system as opposed to the white-based Christianity we’ve been spoon fed that said we were the “cursed children of Ham.”
Dear Colonizers, European Imperialists, Evangelicals and Fundamentalists while you worship your white god today at your white church please explain to me how you can do so after pillaging and ruining countless lands where you did not belong? Stealing resources and murdering peoples whose skin color and religion differed from yours.
How do you justify the KKK, the Christian Right or the Christian Identity Movement and the American Nazi Party? And the idiot racist, sexist, moron who currently illegally occupies the “White House.” Guess it really is the white now. Black people being only 12% of the population you know that we did not vote him in there. The venom that 45 spews from his gutter, these words in not said in a vacuum. Most people of color know that what he says is really what many white Americans actually think!
Also why are over 90% of serial killers and mass murderers white men? People of European descent demonized Muslims, Blacks and Hispanics as lesser races or more violent but even a cursory look at history shows the opposite. Yes white America look in the mirror and see that the true Illegals look just like you!
Europeans and white Americans spent centuries raping, stealing, pillaging, stealing people and natural resources from all the above mentioned continents then complain that those people whose lands were set to ruin are immigrating to America and Europe. That’s a case of the pot calling the kettle Black.
By the way, I’d happily take mine and Stephen’s financial equivalent of the 40 Acres and a Mule that we were promised after slavery plus the accumulated interest to resettle in a land where we would be welcomed and celebrated. Lord knows America is not that place.
