It’s Time to Look Beyond the Labels
September 24, 2015
Eid Mubarak. This is blessed holiday for Muslims and we wish all people a blessed day. We love all the descendants of Adam, and it seems that that is one of the things lacking from the recent Republican debates and dialogue. They seem to be lacking good Christian values—not rhetoric but practice. None of those who are covering themselves in the mantle of Christian Conservative values seem to asking themselves “What Would Jesus Do?” If they did they would discover that he would do the same thing Muhammad would do. Yet they would disqualify a Muslim from public leadership. It seems like some of them are following a white racist Jesus instead of an honored prophet of G-d.
Too often people hide their wickedness under the cover of a righteous label. The real test is, do they accept the inherent dignity of all of the Children of Adam? Or are they still holding on to the old slavemaster teaching that African Americans don’t have the same human origin? It’s tyranny on the life of the poor and oppressed when people have this exaggerated view of themselves. I, for one am not impressed by their perceived stature, but we should not think that they are not dangerous.
The slave master is as damaged by slavery as we were. They had to compromise the best of Christian values to justify their enslavement and mistreatment of African Americans. They had to compromise the best aspirations of the Founding Fathers for the promise and destiny of this country. It was our struggle that brought them back to those values and they just can’t take that. These same Founding Fathers found much of their inspiration from Islam for the Constitution. Those who think that Islam is incompatible with American life and future are simply uninformed. Unfortunately they have formed an unholy alliance with the media. I have yet to see the media describe the horrible murderous acts of whites as terrorism. I have yet to see the media reference the long history of domestic terrorism against African Americans in this country.
They isolate these incidents and excuse the behavior of the sociopaths and psychopaths among their people. And when they do acknowledge their wrongs its on false and immoral basis.
Recently, Rini Sampath, a brown skinned East Asian, and student body president at the University of Southern California, was walking back from a friend’s apartment, when someone leaned out of a fraternity house window, shouted: “You Indian piece of s—!” and hurled a drink at her. “Once his fraternity brothers realized it was me, they began to apologize,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “This stung even more.”
In New York, tennis star James Blake was slammed to the ground, handcuffed and wrongfully arrested after a plainclothes police officer mistook him for a fraud suspect. A former NYPD officer recognized him and told the active duty officers who he was before he was released. Families of other victims of police abuse rallied demanding apologies and justice from the city.
The thing that both of these attacks have in common, beside the demented mentality and diseased heart of the perpetrators is that both aggressors apologized when they found out who the victim was—Like, “we thought you were just a regular nigger. We would have discriminated against you on a much higher scale had we known. We got special discrimination for special niggers.”
The only reason I can see why they insist on hiding their true feelings behind hoods, and badges and flags is that they’re cowards. They don’t have the courage to just come out and say “I am better you than you.” They know they can’t back it up. If they weren’t cowards, they’d take off the hoods and the masks and get in the ring. Strip down to their shorts, none of that fakery, and see what they’ve got against a Jack Johnson, a Muhammad Ali or a Floyd Mayweather. Let’s see where the superiority lies. Or let them compete in establishing civilization for thousands of years like in Egypt, or let them compete in establishing religious freedom and cooperation like in Muslim Spain. Or develop yourself a complete system of knowledge like Algebra or Astronomy.
It’s time to look beyond the labels. I’ve got news for you. When you’re in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and you need a blood transfusion into those venom filled veins in your body, you may care where the blood comes from but your body won’t. When that corrupt heart of yours stops ticking, and you try to replace it, your body won’t care where it comes from. And in spite of all the power and wealth you boast of now, when you leave this earth and the bugs are crawling over your corpse in the grave, you won’t even have the power then to raise your hand and flick the bug off. Prophet Muhammed said in his last sermon: “All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action.”
