Dear white people,
Most of you in America disregard the facts of how you all came to be on American (your name not ours) soil. Let me refresh your memories.
Before 1492 there were no whites on American soil, that’s right no whites. When you did show up you killed the people who welcomed you and helped you to survive in a strange land. You stole their land all of the resources, gold, oil, water, coal, gas and other natural minerals and divided them amongst yourselves. You killed millions of men, women and children and claimed their home land as your own.
Well, the last time I checked the laws that you have imposed on our land and the people who were here (and still are), taking anything by force that does not belong to you and killing the people to whom it does belong to is theft and murder.
I know what you’re saying, “I didn’t steal anything, I worked for what I have”, news flash that does not make the initial crime committed go away. You say, “Well, that was my great, great, great grandfather or grandmother who perpetrated the crimes.” That may be true, but you inherited the spoils of the deeds and now you feed your livelihood and that of your families with these same stolen goods. No one has been prosecuted, tried, convicted or served any time for any of the crimes against the sovereign peoples of this land. Instead you have enslaved them, destroyed their families, stomped on their culture, kidnapped, tortured and killed their men, women and children without even a glance in their direction to see the carnage and mayhem you created. SHAME ON YOU!!
Now you actually have the nerve to call this land, your land with no bill of sale, treaty, legal patent or legal deed. You have never honored one treaty and all of your false paper work was never signed by anyone other than yourselves, how convenient. How do I know this, our native tongue was not English nor was our written word. Another news flash for you, it takes two or more people to constitute a binding contract, a seller and buyer, you can’t be both, again your law.
I listen to your ramblings of patriotism and rights, what about the rights of the people you stole from and murdered. You all want to sweep this history away, you want us to just get over it and forget about it, and just how are we to accomplish this feat, when it is all around us. We are continually reminded of it on a daily basis. White supremacy, white privilege, white brutality, white lies (pun intended), white history, white destruction, of people of color, all over the planet. How are we to forget and get over it, when we are confronted with white hatred, racism, prejudice, and bigotry constantly?
When we point out your horrendous crimes you say that we are being divisive, harmful, and non-productive, yet, when you uphold all of your destruction it’s for PEACE AND DEMOCRACY. WHAT A MOCKERY.
Here is a lesson that your history teacher did not teach, YOU DO NOT OWN ANYTHING IN AMERICA. Theft does not constitute ownership and until you make restitution, you are a common criminal and should be hunted down jailed, tried, and convicted for crimes against humanity, genocide, rape, and kidnapping. Who should be charged, every one of you who are still profiting from your ancestors dirty deeds. Every one of you whose ancestry traces back to your so called founding fathers, whom you are so proud of touting as the ones who discovered our land, even though we met you on our shores when you got off the boat.
How can you condemn any person of color for not celebrating your religion, saluting your flag, respecting, standing and singing your anthem when all of them were created under your tyranny of death and destruction, just as it is today. All of you, who do not know the second and third stanzas of that song, need to take a serious look at what it says before you condemn those of us who do know.
Those of you who comprehend what your ancestors have done, how they built this system upon lies, and wish to make amends, please summon the courage to have a conversation among your family and friends, and with people of color, so that the healing can begin. We have all been damaged in some way by the constant sources of division that are thrown at us on a daily basis (PTSD). Hatred is a learned behavior. We must come together in One Mind, One Heart and One Spirit. Peace and Love.
