I am grateful that I have inherited the survival gene from my ancestors, it is their sacrifice that fuels my fire. May the Almighty bless and keep their Souls. What I mean to say is, I am not going away... not quietly, anyway! -30-

However, when we choose to not suck, but to rise and ascend into our higher nature, we have access to an innate strength and steadfast resilience otherwise known as survival instincts.

But make no mistake. We have passed this way before. Powerful men and women have repeatedly abused their station throughout the history of this Nation. It is the unfortunate nature of mankind. A fair percentage of us suck.

We are about to see if, as a nation, we possess the character and self-respect to dig deep into ourselves where the truth lives. We need hear out, Dr. Ford.

America and the United States Senate were not ready to believe, Professor Anita Hill. I watched EVERY moment of that Senate hearing. I remember!!! Those Senators impugned that good woman’s name and character. She was collateral damage.

What is different this time is that it is the word of a prominent, professional white woman vs the word of an equally respected white man. Professor Ford is not so easily dismissed, marginalized or vilified Again, she is a white woman!

What is clear to me is that none of this is new. Countless lynchings took place during Jim Crow on the say-so of white men. Who, by the way, comprised the totality of every jury that acquitted every white man who was brought to trial.

If you don’t possess the imagination to follow my argument... Cool. But I will not indulge your intention to be obtuse!

Haha! You think having my opinion, perspective or point of view being scoffed at dismissed, or otherwise invalidated by you, is NEW to me?

What the aging white men in the Senate want this time is to ram their choice for the Supreme Court down our throats.

In America, Caucasian men are at the top of the pyramid. What they say goes! Period. Full stop. No matter what or who is sacrificed as collateral damage in the pursuit of whatever it is they want at any given moment.

Mr. Wilson is clearly down and on one knee. His assailant is launching a kick to the head and in case that is not enough to satisfy the bloodlust, there are those in the background poised and ready to step in to do more violence.
