Dear Ms. Lunelle,
I thought I had at least two more weeks of seclusion left. However, it is almost impossible for me to hide anymore, or to stop my flag from insisting that we hit the streets for teaching and uplifting the spirits of so many.
I would find myself this morning surrounded by several young college students who wanted to know what I thought about Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, and also what I thought about the NAACP opposing his nomination?
My reply was that the NAACP is as bigoted as it gets, and can never miss a beat at race baiting, and has done nothing to advance social vertical mobility for the Black race in over 50 years, just a bunch of grand standing and defending thugs. And that goes for those Black attorneys who oppose the Senator as well. “I believe Senator Sessions will make a great Attorney General,” was my final comment on the subject.
Several more of my babies would stop and ask of me if I was going to post the colors at their schools this year during Black History Month? I told them that they ought to ask their principals and teachers to invite me in so that they could learn something about the Black Confederate soldier, and his family that supported the Confederate cause against an invading army that had orders to take the theater of war to their home place, with plunder, rape and murder the orders of the day.
Ms. Jenna would send me a news article about nine Confederate monuments vandalized in the Confederate section of a cemetery in our State Capitol (Raleigh, N.C.). There is no wiggle room for this, and what Dylan Roof did. It only validates in the minds of people who think like him a sense of justification. And let us not forget what happened to that baby boy in Chicago. My mom used to say that the pot can’t call the kettle black. Now, I understand just what she meant.
It is too bad that the South was not allowed to go its own way. When the Honorable General Robert E. Lee signed that treaty at Appomattox Courthouse, he opened the gates of hell for a lot of Africans who otherwise under the tutelage of their Southern Judeo-Christian families had better days ahead on earth, and in heaven with Jesus Christ.
And, I believe that the example the Southern African would have set for their fellow man would have been glorious for the world to see, and follow, especially as they came out of the world wide economic institution of slavery championed by the Judeo-Christian man who had nothing to fear from him. Only wanting to do right by him, because this African stood by him at every junction since he arrived in bondage.
Later to the delight of a nice grey headed White lady as I stood in the customer service line to pick up a money order that Ms. Jenna sent to me, I would recite the poem, “I Am Their Flag.” The ovation I would get is beyond description. God bless you!
