When Unity Is The Only Solution

On January 20, 2017 America watched Donald J. Trump become the 45th President of the United States of America.  On the same day, America watched the 1st Black President, Barack Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama, ride off on Marine One to bring an end to a historic Presidency.

As I watched everything unfold, my mind began to think about what we must do as Black people to move forward under this new administration.

I started to think about how fragmented we have become.  There are so many things that separate us now.  Social status has become even more powerful than racism, because we now don’t work together simply because one person may have more money than the other.  We are now defined by where we live. The church has also become a place that treats the haves differently than the have nots. What has caused such a disturbance between people who look alike? What is it that makes us act as if we are not attached to the same history that once had us all bound together collectively?

During a time when racism was obvious, black people were treated the same by our oppressors. It did not matter how well you spoke.  It did not matter how well you dressed.  It did not matter who you worked for, and it certainly did not matter what church you belonged to. All of us were called niggers.

America is still calling us by this negative term.  It became brutally obvious to me when I watched then, Vice President-elect Mike Pence shake every hand that he could, and even went on the row right behind President and First Lady Obama, but never shook their hands. In my opinion, Vice President Pence was calling them out of their names. He was sending a message to so many with his actions.

So now that President Trump is in office, what are we going to do?  Are we going to ignore the White House? Are we going to bad mouth every Black person who makes the decision to talk to the President? Are we going to keep allowing these political parties to separate us?

If we are going to participate in politics, we must first learn more about the political processes.  We have to know more about who we are voting for. We need to know who is truly on our side, and not just talking. There are politicians who we continue voting for, but never see the changes that they claim to be fighting . We must work to hold these individuals accountable. If we can’t, then we must find candidates who will work in the best interests of our people.

We can no longer allow Democrats, Republicans , church denominations, or social status to separate us from each other. We are prime examples of divide and conquer. Black men are separated from black women. Black families are falling apart at a rapid rate. Our neighborhoods are run down because we are no longer neighbors.

The time for unity is now!

You are my brother. You are my sister. There is NOTHING that will cause me to treat you less than I would myself. We must learn to treat each other better, while operating in excellence.

We have yet to see if this will be the worst President for us to have as Black people.  To this date, we do know that we have seen some very difficult times in this country. The difference between then and now is how we worked together to get through those tough times, and terrible people. We can do it again.

Unity amongst our people is the only solution. It has been tried, and tested. I believe that if Black people can come together as one, we will be the most powerful nation within this nation, and an unstoppable force.

The time is now.
