Donald Trump is practising White Identity Politics. He is appealing to those who might sympathize to some degree with White Supremacists and Neo Nazis to fight for the idea that white people are starting to feeling like a minority group. I hate to wake The Donald up, but whites have always been a minority when it comes to world population. Europe, the hotbed of white civilization before Columbus, was a very tiny continent in relation to the vastness of continents such as Africa, Asia, the Americas, India, and even Australia. In the days of Marco Polo, Columbus, Captain Cook, and the other “great explorers,” all of whom just happened to be white, so history tells us, they never travelled anywhere that they found white inhabitants. So what did they do, being more technologically advanced that most of the rest of the world, they tried to colonize the world, it was their manifest destiny. That was then, this is now.
White people, while they are in the minority, control most of the money in the world. The Vatican is the richest country in the world, followed closely by the United States of America and Great Britain, not in any particular order. Germany, France, Russia, even Canada rank higher in wealth than most other nations, if you ignore the lucky happenstance for them that most of the oil producers in the world are of other persuasions, the brown races, so-to-speak. So, even though the white races are in the minority population-wise, those white nations control most of the money and POWER in the world. Does this sound like a minority situation to you?
Is that because only the top 5% of the white population controls 99% of that wealth and power? Leaving 95% to feel downtrodden and used, and thus easily convinced that whites need to protect themselves against all other races and nations. It is not people of colour who are keeping most whites down, it is that 5% of people their own colour who are keeping them down. Come on. How stupid can you be? Coloured people are not your enemies, they are your allies. White people, the members of the white elite, are the ones that keep the rest of us down, and I definitely consider myself a white person despite my Metis blood. I am over 50% white, and that is what I must deal with. My European blood may be constantly at war with my Aboriginal blood, but that does not prevent me from seeing that I am downtrodden by whites.
The thing is, it really doesn’t matter what colour my skin is, the skin I wear on my outside does not affect the colour of my spirit, which is essentially colourless. Invisible, to be exact. And that is true for every human species, as well as for every species on this earth. Life is what we all have in common, and our spirits are what we can attribute to our status as living beings. Every living being on the earth has an invisible spirit. Hell, every living being in the universe probably has an invisible spirit. Why think inside the box? Life everywhere is coloured invisible. Even in these crazy times on earth. Especially in these crazy times of Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists and White Identity Politics. The so-called rulers of the world need to keep us divided so they can keep themselves apart from the rest of their species. From the rest of their living relatives.
Why are we so blind?
We are so blind because we do not want to see the truth. Any reason to feel superior to someone else, or something else, is a reason to ignore the facts of our existences. Europe and North America have the highest living standards for all their inhabitants. No matter how little we have, we are better off than Africans or Asians, right? Wrong! Downtrodden is relative, and downtrodden is downtrodden. We can have a better standard of living, a better education system, a better way of live, of course. But we are still not free to feel free. We pay lip-service to freedom, sure, but that doesn’t make us free. As long as we are working for someone else, as long as we are paying homage to someone else, we ARE NOT FREE.
As long as we are not RESPONSIBLE for ourselves, and through ourselves to all other living beings, we are not free. And the more we think we are the stupider we are. We are exactly where the 5% of wealth and power holders want us, and that is our truth. Please open your eyes.
