I didn't read it anywhere .... Its just that texts and posts etc. which appear

straight forward by most who read them, seem to be taken out of

context by black people. Often reading into things, what was never meant.

Like I said in another post whenever I thought or felt put out or slighted about

something my mother would tell me to get rid of that *chip on my shoulder.*

Same difference?

I don't spend my time looking for subliminal messages.........................

Yeah we are back to Katsup counting as a vegetable , I post before on folks doing urban gardening on vacant gov't owed lots

This is just some of the creative solutions I meant, when ppl tell you to eat junk grow your own, when they tell you you cant get a bank loan do informal banking called Susu.

Susu Banking System How to avoid Banksters
Practice group economics,
educated your the folks doing at Urban Prep, that do waay better than the national average with 100% graduates bound for Uni for 7 consecutive years.
Take charge of your community vote the bums out install the kind of police force that is responsive to you, it's ridiculous to have yourselves being run roughshod over by folks who could give a good gad damn about you
Yes these things and much much more should be done with or without a Trump presidency , but now it's even more urgent.

but come on man he draws them to his camp like flies to dung, because there is something in his message that they love and that can't be good for folks who look like me, Im sorry.

His message is a big F U to the system which has done nothing for people like you and me except lie ,cheat, and make the rich richer.

Not everything is about racism when white people are involved.

However labeling whitey as the villian is surely not going to help bring us togther.

I never said white folks in general are villains , I am looking at the possible repercussions of Trump presidency and yes whites will suffer especially if he breaks the economy , I am looking at jack booted thugs that will jack the average black or Latino on the street because they felt even more empowered to do so, we have at least one commentator who think that's a good thing.

And yes I want a system change, Hillary wasn't it...not feeling Trump man, and I hope to the Goddess I am wrong and he is the hail Mary we have been looking for all along but his speeches and the company he keeps give me no confidence.

I dont understand your point. You say not all Trump supporters are racists, but white racists were drawn to him.

Is not the same true on the democratic side? Not all people who voted for Hillary are racists towards whites, but she did draw many anti white people to her party. Don't believe me, look at the litany of people cursing and blaming white people for this election.

And you speak of hypothetical jack booted Trump supporters jumping people. Well what about the two videos today of people beating Trump supporters? This isn't hypothetical, its real.

So what is the point of your thread? Yes, racists are on all sides. Yes, hypothetically Trump supporters may attack blacks or Hispanics.

But if you are worried about these hypothetical, how do you think Trump supporters feel about the NON HYPOTHETICAL real violence against them that is happening now?

The Jack booted thugs is in reference to the police, and yes there are a faction of them that are active white supremacist, FBI report from a few years ago.

In 2006, the FBI issued a warning that infiltration by groups such as the KKK into law enforcement agencies could present a security risk.
The up tick in un-armed shootings and arrest in my view is linked to that.
The White Supremacist need not don a hood,all they have to and many did is join the police force.

Rural Alabama Cops Accused Of Mass False Arrests Of Blacks
I post this sometime ago earlier this year, and it's not a one off thing, and it's not hypothetical it's is on going.

Damn straight, Spider!! Food forests! I love it! Now, that is being independent rather than an unthinking consumer of what some would like to advertise down our throats till we choke and die. That is the ultimate of taking personal responsibility. America somehow became convinced all that was old, dope smokin' hippie stuff, the old sit around and sing kumbaya all day stuff. People can think of a million ways why a Food Forest can't/shouldn't be done, but you showed that it can.

If young people take the seeds of ideas that were planted some time ago and grow them, they will be better off. That is why I cannot despair, because of people like you. And Ron Finley, and so many others who show us what is possible.
