“Men do not love those who remind them of their sins unless they have a mind to repent—and the mulatto child’s face is a standing accusation against him who is master and father to the child.”-Frederick Douglas (My Bondage and My Freedom)

Frederick Douglass stated:  “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men”, thus providing us with the notion that there is still hope in this world and it starts with that of our youth. I for one believe that what we are witnessing in this modern-day calamity is a product of a crossroad or pinnacle that we have reached in this country that is ushering in that of a new generation as opposed to that of an old guard that has for centuries on end found itself atop a food chain or class system that has provided a certain level of comfort and assured legacy. Let me preference that the white versus black narrative is an old standby answer that is preached to that of the feeble-minded. Civil Rights was achieved through what I deem as the hands of many, all made up of different hues and different backgrounds. This alone is why my blog title can exist and it further highlights the premise that African-Americans and Caucasian-Americans can exist as well as cohabitate, as we are seeing what I deem as Amerikkka’s (not to be confused with America) Nightmare finally coming to fruition.

You may ask yourself whether or not I am concluding that there are two Americas? The answer to that is yes. Post-Civil Rights, we find a new America that is working to become inclusive and tolerant in its young sixty-two years of existence as opposed to that of its predecessor, the Pre-Civil Rights Amerikkka which lasted some four hundred plus years that was baptized in slavery, white supremacy and intolerance. What we seldom highlight is how young Civil Rights is. To believe that this “America” version is going to be suddenly balanced and the void of social injustices is the thought process to that of the naïve thinker. The parents of my generation are in their 60’s, which means we have leftovers from the Pre-Civil Rights Amerikkka that is a product of slavery, white supremacy and intolerance, who are still effecting the social climate of this Post-Civil Rights America. This impedes and retards true social change, as we have an old guard’s mind set in a newfangled world that is accepting of ideologies that were once thought of as being blasphemous. Among those unaccepted ideologies was the idea of bi-racial children existing in the forefront of America culture. We saw for two centuries the refuted denial of Thomas Jefferson fathering children with Sally Hemings who was a slave woman at his Monticello dwellings, only to find out circa 1998 by way of DNA testing done by Dr. Eugene Foster that Thomas Jefferson did in fact father six of her children. Of course this claim was pushed to be refuted again by the Thomas Jefferson Heritage Society, further showing the lengths by which people are willing to go in order to preserve the idea that these said acts could not have happened, especially when a founding father is involved that happens to be of Caucasian decent.  So to state that it was shameful to have a bi-racial child or children Pre-Civil Rights Amerikkka is probably not laying enough emphasis on the magnitude of this so-called social discretion during this era. I liken this to a common phrase that states that this is in fact Pre-Civil Rights Amerikkka’s “dirty little secret”. But much like every secret, what is done in the dark is assured to be exposed into the light at some point in time. What was once an Amerikkka that refuted the notion that African-Americans and Caucasian-American’s could coexist, now finds a Post-Civil Rights America that finds themselves existing for the most part in unison, but most importantly they are cohabitating in unison. I will take it a step further in stating that not only has this Post-Civil Rights America seen cohabitation between that of the African-American and Caucasian American, we have come to find that at least three products of that cohabitation are effecting the social climate in a way yet to be seen. Barack Obama, Jesse Williams and Colin Kaepernick, all products of interracial relationships and all are impacting America in a way that has become a nightmare for those leftovers from the preexisting Amerikkka that wish to hold on to their archaic ideas and belief systems. What was once the “dirty little secret” is now America’s greatest gift in providing a soundtrack to Rodney King’s declaration of “Can we all get along?” What I find amazing is the fact that when we do get along the children that are born as a result of these relationships turn out to be some of the most intelligent and most beautiful people on the planet. From Bob Marley and Alicia Keys to Lenny Kravitz and Grant Hill, all have uniquely impacted the world in a way like no other. This is the secret that the old Amerikkka does not want you to see. They do not want to see the races intermingle because it will spell out their annihilation and imminent doom.  This is their worst nightmare coming true. The bi-racial child. Amerikkka’s true nemesis. #shout out to my nephew who is beautiful and bi-racial
