I cannot believe that the late great John Lewis, a Civil Rights icon, would be among those insisting for a return of Segregation, only this time for white folks, as some form of payback

Congressman John Lewis, a man who represented the state of Georgia’s 5th Congressional District since the late 1980s faced life-threatening danger in his fight for Civil Rights. Arrested at least 40 or more times, his head bashed in by police billy clubs to the point he had a metal plate inserted in his skull, he fought for equality, for civil rights, an end to racism, and a new beginning for all Americans.

108 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

How is it we are now seeing a new call for ‘segregation?’

Wasco, CA 93280, 07-22-2020 Wednesday:  Black Americans most likely would never have received their Civil Rights had it not been for Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Reverend Jesse Jackson, James Clyburn, John Lewis,[i] the Freedom Riders, the students who participated in sit-in’s throughout the South, and countless other known and unknown individuals and groups.  Many more participated in the fight for equality but these five were essential to leading the struggle to bring black men and women equality in a time and place where none existed- even a century after the Civil War’s end freed the slaves, the second one was much more violent and the stakes were enormous.

The fight began with boycotts against various government and pseudo-governmental entities, such as Montgomery, Alabama’s segregated buses- among other things.  Virtually every place in the South made more money off of its black citizens simply because we were the ones riding the buses to and from work, doing the mundane tasks that kept white society moving, and yet, the white segregationists found it impossible to survive.

When we said, ‘we aren’t going to ride your city buses anymore,’ even if we had to walk 10 miles to work and 10 miles back, uphill both ways and in 100-degree weather, both summer and winter (LOL)[ii].  Our determination found insolvency staring white society in the face and so they buckled but not after loads of strife.

Congressman John Lewis, a man who represented the state of Georgia’s 5th Congressional District since the late 1980s faced life-threatening danger in his fight for Civil Rights.  Arrested at least 40 or more times, his head bashed in by police billy clubs to the point he had a metal plate inserted in his skull, he fought for equality, for civil rights, an end to racism, and a new beginning for all Americans.

Although I did not know him personally, I feel as though I did.  I wish I had had the opportunity to have met him and to have told him, “thank you for all you have done.  Were it not for your suffering, your anguish, were it not for you never giving in to overwhelming forces and intolerable fear, we might none of us have ever seen an end to Jim Crow, to segregation, to red-lining, and to inequality.  No, were it not for you, we might not be the business owners we are today.[iii]  For that, we owe you a debt of gratitude.”

Somewhere between Dr. King, the March on Washington, and the advent of black militancy, things went awry.  I understand why we had Malcolm X, why Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale created the Black Panther Party, why Angela Davis and numerous others went down a darker route, because in some places, things were not moving fast enough or the resistance was too great.  Black men and women were putting their lives on the line seeking what white society had long had and the only way to achieve it was through blood, sweat, tears, and sacrifice.

I remember from the time that the split between fighting for Civil Rights and a desire to ‘pay whitey back’ was a destabilizing conflict in the fight for black equality.  I remember my folks at the time telling me of their anguish, that they understood how Dr. King felt.

According to them, he wanted blacks to become more assertive in their struggles for equality but he also feared that if blacks became belligerent and hostile to the existing power order, it might take longer for his dream of ‘little black babies and little white babies growing up together in an atmosphere of peace’ to come about.

This is where we now find ourselves.  For some reason, with the fight for Civil Rights seemingly fulfilled, we are now seeing a regression to the more hostile side of the original fight.

We are seemingly witnessing a demand for a return to segregation, only that blacks, Latinos, and other people of color now want to segregate white people from the rest of society.  Not only is this crazy, it’s also counterproductive, especially when we are on the cusp of attaining equality for all only to lose it as the more vocal and violent side of the struggle- a minority at most- wants payback, which will be the death of the nation and a birth of something new, something no one wants to see.[iv]

God bless, we will meet again tomorrow.

This is a cartoon caricature of me when I was working at a restaurant in Wasco, CA, my hometown.  The up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist Simone did portraits of each of us here at the blog so I hope you like them as much as I, ahem, do.  Ah, well, I joined the Chefs de Cuisine of Greater Bakersfield, ACF, not long after it was chartered and am still a member even though the chapter is no longer in operation.  I began working in foodservice in the late 1960’s, moved from Wasco, CA, to Monterey, CA, and then returned to my hometown in 2004.  I have been a food server, a Mixologist, and am a Certified Cook.  I am equally at home in both the kitchen and behind the bar (and on the floor, too).  My passions are numerous, and my favorite is working in the bakery whenever I have had a chance.

FOOTNOTES:

[i] Some might inquire as to WHY I did not include the name of Al Sharpton in that haloed list.  Look, Reverend Al is little more than a carnival huckster, always out to make a buck.  The man is a loser. Although he claims he was ‘there with Dr. King,’ he was nowhere to be found.

[ii] I enjoy a good joke like anyone else…well, nowadays, only people my age know how to joke without taking everything personal or breaking into crying fits.  And you wonder WHY ET and I are voting for Trump in November.

[iii] My family believes that were it not for the Civil Rights struggle, we might never have had the comfortable life that we have nor would we have been able to enable our employees to have similar lives.

[iv] This is something that will forever damage our country if we give in to the minute minority of overly loud left-wing lunatics.

This is a cartoon caricature of me when I was working at a restaurant in Wasco, CA, my hometown. The up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist Simone did portraits of each of us here at the blog so I hope you like them as much as I, ahem, do. The important thing for us as foodservice business owners is that we protect our identities because in the age of the Cancel Culture, IF Marxist punks leads boycotts against us, it can destroy businesses that have been around for years, if not decades. Ah, well, I joined the Chefs de Cuisine of Greater Bakersfield, ACF, not long after it was chartered and am still a member even though the chapter is no longer in operation. I began working in foodservice in the late 1960’s, moved from Wasco, CA, to Monterey, CA, and then returned to my hometown in 2004. I have been a foodserver, a Mixologist, and am a Certified Cook.
