There is a precipitous and dangerous chasm that exists in between their truth and their reality.
------------------------------------------------------------
They brought that beacon of light from their alternate universe.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Perhaps best of all, when history is written about the 112th feel good congress, there will be no mention of the revisionist whitewash; but just a feel - good version of lifting the curtain to start each session of congress by reading the sacred and divinely endowed cleaned up version of the constitution.
---------------------------------------------------------------
I guess you’re thinking on that is starting the loop of abuse and victimization at a very young age will allow them to get used to it sooner.

----------------------------------------------------------------
It appears that the sound of their voices from the hills and valleys of the hinterlands, with fading echoes ebbing way over yonder to silent calm still exceed the decibels of their intent. Maybe they had none.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Unlike the mythical bats of yore, these warhawks destroy the host upon which they feed.
---------------------------------------------------------------
We, Black Americans, are not refusing to complain because we are used to the wind in our faces,
but the tide of fate has consumed our dreams and washed us ashore like so much drift wood left to natures whim
-----------------------------------------------------------

About the Author:

I WAS BORN IN MASHULAVILLE, MS. IN 1945, BUT OUR FAMILY RESIDED IN THE NEARBY COMMUNITY OF TRIPLET TOWN, WITH A POPULATION OF LESS THAN 100 PEOPLE. I CONTINUED TO LIVE THERE UNTIL GRADUATING FROM LOUISVILLE COLORED HIGH SCHOOL IN LOUISVILLE MS. IN 1964; WITH VERY FEW JOBS BEING AVAILABLE LOCALLY, I FOUND THE LARGER WORLD BECKONING TO ME TO EXPERIENCE A PART OF LIFE BEYOND MY KNOWN HORIZONS. I DECIDED TO JOIN THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE. DURING MY FOUR YEARS OF SERVING OUR COUNTRY, I ACCUMULATED EVEN MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY OUR SOCIAL AND POLITICAL STRUCTURES WERE SO DIAMETRICAL TO OUR NATIONAL FOUNDING PHILOSOPHICAL IDEAS. BELIEVING THE COLLECTIONS OF MYTH (HISTORY) THAT WE WERE TAUGHT IN SCHOOL TO BE UNTRUE BUT ALSO BELIEVING THAT FAR-FLUNG GEOGRAPHY WOULD ANSWER SOME OF THOSE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS. AS SOMEONE ONCE SAID, "HISTORY IS A FABLE AGREED UPON;" I EMBARKED UPON A QUEST TO FIND THOSE ILLUSIVE ANSWERS TREATED AS SO MUCH TRUTH; A QUEST HERETOFORE NEARLY ALL CONSUMING, CONTINUED UN-ABATED EVEN TO AND ON THROUGH THE DAYS OF THESE WRITINGS. REMEMBERING SO MUCH FROM THE PAST WHILE LOOKING THROUGH THESE CLEARER LENSES INTO THE FUTURE, THE IMAGES AND IDEAS ARE LESS FOGGY. LIFE IS MORE CLEARLY FOCUSED. RETROSPECTION SEEMS TO LIGHT THAT FORWARD PATH. I HAVE WORKED MANY JOBS, RUN SOME BUSINESSES, RAISED A FAMILY AND DEALT WITH PEOPLE FROM MANY WALKS OF LIFE. THESE QUESTIONS OF WHY CAME IN A VARIETY OF FORMS. IN BUSINESS, AS IN ALMOST ALL FACETS OF ACHIEVEMENT, FAVORABLE RESULTS WERE TREATED BY MOST WHO KNEW ME AS MAJOR SURPRISES WHILE I THOUGHT THAT ANYTHING LESS THAN GREAT WAS JUST ACCEPTANCE OF ANOTHER DEFAULT POSITION. MAYBE WRITING THAT LONG PROMISED BOOK IS A START AND/OR MAYBE WRITING A FEW WILL LEAD TO ANSWERS I AND MAYBE YOU HAD ALL ALONG. SINCE RETIRING IN 2006 MY WIFE, ROSE, AND I HAVE LIVED IN TUPELO, MISSISSIPPI AND SOMETIMES SET UP VENDER BOOTHS AND SELL AT LOCAL FLEA MARKETS.
