Republicans and Civil Rights Wars

I can, at last, begin to see
why Trump reminds himself, assiduously,
of Republican Party CoFounder Lincoln.

He believes, as did Lincoln,
it is our time to redress
winnings v. White male supremacy over slavery,
and women,
and children,
and Earth Herself,
and xenophobic racist losings
of the U.S. Civil War.

Except, one critical difference,
While Trump fuels patriotic investment
where Red States once were hate and fear exhausted,
Lincoln sided Republicans
and all his other multi-party Cabinet,
with defining patriotism
by where Blue States
are climates of health and freedom
now growing,
if the Red States would just join with us
in moving on toward
our multiculturally polypathic cooperative rewards,
the spoils of UnCivil Wars long gone.

It seems likely
Lincoln’s Republican remains
are turning black and bluer
in his green-grassed grave.

Dear Donald Yet Again

Dear Donald,

Yes, George Washington was a slave owner.
He also wore a wig.

I suggest you adopt the latter,
and don’t worry quite so much about the former,
because we are not about to Just Say Yes
to becoming your colony of enslaved worker bees.

Or, you might just adopt George Washington’s haircut.
He didn’t bother with the comb-over.

Speaking of comb-overs,
What does the evil of George Washington legally owning people
reduced to economically valued property
have to do with a balanced global view of human rights and violent wrongs
in the year 2017,
heading toward anti-comb-over 2020 revisions?

I’ll take my answer off-line.
If I see you in a wig
I’ll know your answer is
EcoPolitically clueless about health as truth-wealth,
as usual.

OutRageously NotListening Yours,

Your HairDesigner Slave

Trump’s Civil Rights Counsel

If your legal counsel on civil rights
is Jeff Sessions,
then you most certainly learned legal precedent
for validity of crossing your fingers
or your toes
or even just imagine doing so
while denouncing economic and political racism
as evil
and likewise evil,
perpetuating enslavement to fear
and anger
and hate-mongering
among Just Us Good Ol’ Boys,
Locker Room Talkers and Marchers
favoring White elitism,

Well then Jesus,
and Trinitarian SuperDivine MightMakesCapitalismRight Patriarchy Incorporated,
will legally and morally absolve you through immaculate partnership,
naturally and spiritually forgive you,

And you shall remain among the select redeemed
despite your Only White Lives Have Ruled The NestBest
alternative rhetorical fact marketing
required, for now,
with fingers crossed
behind your Counselor’s two-faced lie.

You can no more stand pre-millennial idly by
while a Civil Rights Movement
was, and still is, marching through your capital-investments,
without making a part of the post-millennial problem statement,
any more than you can stand innocently by
while White supremacists
are marching through your massive media exposure
without already having mentored
a source of the racist, and sexist, self-denial of anti-patriotic supremacy,
our extant great trans-millennial ecopolitical problem.

Classism USA

Many U.S. citizens
deny that democratic civility and classism can,
and often do,
co-exist.

These tend to be
those who also deny
the multigenerational inheritance of enslaving racism
in defense of egalitarian beliefs
about dignity and indignities of human life,
where some have access to personal and habitat and economic health
by right,
while others,
often born multigenerationally poor,
have yet to earn their equal health care receiving rights
until they have paid their economic care-giving dues
for another decade or generation
or two
or three
or more,
who knows?

So good to know
we live in a culture
without classism,
and certainly without racism.

We just think,
using that term loosely,
that everybody should live equally
separately
as things have always been since,
well…
back to the days of slavery and Kings,
the way God originally ordained,
after the Paradise Forest of Eden,
of course,
which is all our own damned Original Sin fault.

Nodoby would want to go all the way back
to that radical absence of classism
and racism
ReGenerative Creation Story.

Or,
maybe we would?
perhaps we could?
possibility we multiculturally should?

AntiClimatic Cabinetry

Community organizers
and multiculturing regenerators
and organic whole food farmers
all agree
we tend to end up
back to where historically empowered nutritional voices started.

Look at all these old white men
in their predominantly red meat patriarchal ties.

Is this a cabinet
made of polyculturing organic containers
for regenerate multicultural growth?

Or a funeral
for the not too soon departing
all WhiteHouse?

Not Your Negro

Last night I was mesmerized
by James Baldwin
in a documentary
“I Am Not Your Negro”
in which Baldwin reflects on
Medger, Malcolm, and Martin
who were shot in that order
within six years of each other,
all under age forty,
by guns newer nationalistic leaders of the NRA
would most likely celebrate
for sale and use to hate,
retaliate
for sins of last-class birth.

One picture stands out
among several shocking views.
A Birmingham Alabama protest placard
stating
INTEGRATED SCHOOLS
AND MARRIAGE
IS COMMUNISM.

Both Marx and Engels
would have been surprised to read this,
but perhaps such an obvious display of ignorance
merits no alternative definition,
or even grammar,
having more to do with economics
than monoculturing misuse of supremacist politics.

So allow me
this one much belated try.

Communism is an evolutionary theory
of economic development
assuming competition between those who own
and those who do not
will inevitably lead
to falling aristocracies of hoarded wealth,
regardless of race, color, creed,
gender,
gender preference,
religion,
language,
whether you vote blue,
or red,
or green,
much more black and white not together.

Communitarianism
is a cooperative evolutionary experience
in which co-investment between and among co-owners
leads to optimal quality improvement
of healthy wealth outcomes,
regardless of race,
gender,
creolizing mutually enculturing
as above.

Democratic whole Earth system healthy politics,
both sacred and secular varieties,
support communitarian wealthy co-investing economics,
and vice versa.

But,
neither competitive totalitarian communism
nor cooperative subsidiary ownership
and responsibility
and authority of communitarians
is defined by racial integration,
or libertarianism either, for that possibly unrelated matter,
although these might agree
that continuing freedoms for segregation
and its fossilizing maintenance
prolongs and builds higher walls
between those who have most,
those who have nothing,
and those who worry about joining the latter
by waving placard ignorance
for the former,
too busy hoarding their money
within gated communities
to actually show up,
while quietly financing
our most avid absence of integrity supporters.

Enforcing segregation of races
works about as well as
forced separation of food-chain species,
where eventually everybody starves separately
rather than feeding off
and on
each other
together,
more like an actually healthy community.

Politics of Mental Health v Pathology

My cerebral palsied incontinent AfricanAmerican FetalAlcohol daughter
asked her teacher if she could be her Substitute
while said teacher will be absent next week.

I was asked for my opinion on the wisdom of accepting this offer:

Ivy will rule with Ugly StepMother tyranny.
She emulates President Trump’s style of self v other empowerment.
With her we call it Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
With him we call it Executive Order.

But then,
I can look at the two of them side by side,
and see why that may be why things are as they are.
