The Heart Of A Nation


Written By: Colin Bruce Munro Wood - 08/15/2017 - 2:50PM ET

I wish one could take a literal pulse and pressure of the nation's current boiling point status. 

Slavery entered the America's in Jamestown, Virgina in 1619 when a Dutch ship brought the first 20 slaves upon our shores. In case you are already counting...that is 398 years ago. Yes, almost 400 years this issue of blacks being inferior to whites has degraded our Nation's image. 

Accumulating wisdom, shown in what our Nation's Constitution endowed to all persons of the United States as freedom, helped bring about the Civil War and the fight for State's rights. The North pushed for freedom of slaves, and after 5 bloody years, over 7 million slaves were legally freed.

What that did to change the nation's heart was minimal and the battle over white supremacist's rights has endured ever since. 

The 1960's brought about our greatest fights against racism, and supremacy. There were marches, fires, shootings, and the loss of great leaders to help bring about more awareness of the rights of all minorities, especially black individuals at the time. Many marches took place, and it was a time of deep turmoil.

Fast forward to the early 90's, and we entered another short lived era of racial tension with the beating of Rodney King, and the baffling trial that allowed the officers to go free. 

Now, it's 2017, and we are still facing this huge blemish upon American society, that at this time in history should no longer be an issue. For some time, it may have seemed as though racism might not rear it's ugly head in a massive way ever again. Yet, a couple days ago in Charlottesville, Virginia, we have once again seen that this great nation is still battling an ugly scar that continues to break open every so many decades. 

I have previously, on my prior blog, written many articles about the fact that the unyielding power that white supremacy is still enforcing across our country has not melted away since the 1960's drive to rid our country of this ugliness. 

Without getting into my own private feelings and witness to racism, and police profiling, it does grossly exist.

But, in order for the country to truly rid itself of this ugliness over the next couple decades, we must pressure our congressman to put great pressure on all hate groups. 

The African men, women and children who were forced to come to America as slaves never asked for it to happen. Some might say it's been so long, that they shouldn't be blaming white Americans still. That could be true, if these bigoted demonstrations of hate didn't advertise that we are still a nation that judges by the color of skin.

Skin tone. A genetic position determined by a mix of chromosomes. Yet, other than that, we are all human, stand, walk, talk, reason, feel, love, kill and search for a reason to live.

The overtones of hate in America have egregiously caused immigrants and blacks to haven in their own neighborhoods where they feel safe. However, our Government for the people, tends to turn it's back on these neighborhoods, and allows for poverty to set in, due to discrimination that affects every aspect of the minority's life. Whether it be jobs, monetary applications, types of treatment during arrests, and let the list go on. 

No one can convince me that we don't have shadowed indecencies toward minorities in these United States..."UNITED". I think that word means to act as ONE!

May Charlottesville be more than another blemish on American History, but a reminder and a catalyst to increase our battle against hate in our great country! We must band together as a nation of loving people, stretch out our hands, greet one another on the street, talk with one another and listen, and become a team of fighters against the KKK, The Neo-Nazis, and all domestic terrorist groups that set out to harm the true meaning of our Constitution's freedoms!

We must reset the heart of the nation to a new beat, and strengthen it with unrestricted love and acceptance of all who love, and don't hate, and power up together!
