No Doubt: They Treat Us Harsher Than their Own
October 31, 2015
Allah (G-d) Most High says in the Qur’an: 4.135, O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts)…”and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice.”5:8
Even their own Bible says:
Evidently the Christian rulers of America did not get the memo. It is clear and there is no doubt that from the its very beginning, they have treated us Harsher Than Their Own.
Over 100 years ago, the slave, Julia, told white America, “You look like G-d in the face, but act like the devil in your hearts.” Frederick Douglass also said: “You claim the religion of Christ, to be Christ like, and you claim to be the teachers of Democracy for the whole world, but your behavior is such that would shame a nation of savages.” Yes, I Am Your Brother: Understanding the Indigenous African American Muslim.”
Their Child-Our Child
So we knew this all along, but now after two decades mass incarcerations that have devastated African American communities, it is clear that there was no justice in the criminal justice system. When the video of the South Carolina police officer forcibly throwing a young black teenage girl from her chair and dragging her across the floor went viral I made the point that never, in your wildest dream, could you imagine an officer doing a white child like that.”
Now white Americans parents cannot imagine their children spending decades behind bars for their drug abuse. The New York Times reports today that, in light of whites exploding heroin use, “…White Families Seek Gentler War on Drugs.”
The article notes reluctance among some to even use the word “junkie” now, and points out: “When the nation’s long-running war against drugs was defined by the crack epidemic and based in poor, predominantly black urban areas, the public response was defined by zero tolerance and stiff prison sentences. But today’s heroin crisis is different. While heroin use has climbed among all demographic groups, it has skyrocketed among whites; nearly 90 percent of those who tried heroin for the first time in the last decade were white.
“…now using their influence, anger and grief to cushion the country’s approach to drugs, from altering the language around addiction to prodding government to treat it not as a crime, but as a disease.
The Justice Department, under President Obama’s influence, is also preparing to release roughly 6,000 inmates from federal prisons as part of an effort to roll back the severe penalties issued to nonviolent drug dealers in decades past. There are going to come out with disintegrated families (sons who have had no authority in their lives waiting to take the father’s place in the cell), no jobs, no voting rights, and stigma from preventing them even getting jobs. The two decades that some of them have spent in prison I suppose just gives that generation of whites a little head start.
Where’s all that harshness now that there people are being addicted and imprison. No, let’s have a more forgiving attitude now. They’ve got all kinds of excuses for their wickedness, their hatred and their greed but everybody else is the devil. They’re a bunch of hypocrites.
G-d you’ve got to bring justice; you’ve got to make this thing fair. If we believe in a G-d of Justice, let’s prepare ourselves for that. I have no doubt He’ll make it right, if I do my part. And let’s not let the leadership of today’s world take us to hell with them and disqualify us.
