Op Ed: The Monster Explodes – ‘For God’s Sake’

by The Rev. Dr. Britt Minshall

Thank God it’s out in the open. The vast and huge MONSTER that has festered in the American social Meme, “RACISM & WHITE SUPREMACY”, has exploded into full sunlight.

But first, UNEMOTIONALLY, as a Social Psychologist and the Author of The Book of MEME Law (from which this data flows), let’s examine from whence this nasty and harmful movement comes.

It’s quite simple: Meme Law (55 universal precepts that govern Group behaviors) follows the same forces as the rules of physical science, namely: “FOR EVERY MOVEMENT THERE IS AN OPPOSITE and EQUAL MOVEMENT.”  My so called prophesies es, predicting our final outcome, are not mystical, they’re common sense extrapolations from the present, to where this will lead. My reason for 15 years of warnings was to get people acting oblivious to this emerging beast aware of the danger.

The vast main stream of Americans struggled within themselves, as the need for an OPEN SOCIETY, a multilingual, multiracial and multicultural nation was being birthed.  In the beginning large number of especially White people found strong objection to the change.  I can’t tell you how many times I was disowned by my family (1965-1995) for my Civil Rights work.  But, as time progressed and people matured, most whites felt safer as their friends and family did the “unthinkable” of racial intermarrying, adopting across racial lines, helping integrate churches and found friends as the workplaces became integrated. Soon it was not in vogue to be harping the same old White violent rhetoric.

As time progressed, more and more formally excluded people were allowed “IN.” – We became “ALL ONE FAMILY” as women entered colleges, Blacks and Latinos joined the workforce and an entire beautiful potpourri of folk became FRIENDS. The FEAR was melting away!

MOSTLY – BUT; NOT ALL!

Here comes that old MEME Law as “WHITE” position, power and prestige declined year after year, some isolated Whites were filled with FEAR of LOSS [Down with advantage – UP with FEAR]; this opposed to other groups seeing UP with opportunity and DOWN with fear of annihilation. See Diagram:

I have been a voice, speaking to the wind for over 10 years, decrying our badly fractured country. I and others have been called “troublemakers, naysayers” and worse, as we tried to get the civil majority in our country to acknowledge this slow burning WHITE anger that is ruining our world image. In the prior two centuries BLACK people were forced to eat this same anger and suffer.

We can thank Don Trump for supporting these White FEAR FILLED – ANGRY personalities and allowing them entry on the world stage. Among the millions of really GOOD main stream Whites, Blacks and Asians it was a shock, shaking them loose from their apathy.  Unfortunately, it forced us to encounter the ugly anger of the formally “under grounders.” It plagues all of our families!

Everything I presaged about these hate filled monsters has been born out for all to see and has forced our most incompetent chief executive “EVER+++” to show his true “anything but American” values to emerge. (In my 74 years an American I have criticized EVERY Presidents bad policies BUT have never stooped to calling one a universal failure of a human being, a sociopath and a halfwit, but I do now.)

I am actually proud of my own White people, who didn’t give into the hate and have stood in big numbers, validating every prayer I have uttered for us: “Please Lord, make my people take their heads from the sand and riding on the pleasure bus and force them to speak out against this evil!” Now WE have and WE are.

Remember it was said in reference to Adolph Hitler, our President’s hero figure: “All that is required for evil to flourish is for good people to do nothing!”  This is what happened in 1938 Germany as White Aryans turned their back on German Jews, Poles, gays, Blacks and outsiders, after all said they: “What business is it of mine?”

That’s truer now than at any time in America.  I hope these millions of fine decent White people, as well as Blacks, Latinos and Asian American mainstream folks will speak and act consistently together against the evil in America that has manifested itself in the ALT WHITE RIGHT! It’s the RESPONSIBILITY, PRIVILEGE and the BLESSING of ALL Good Americans – For God’s Sake!
