“My Side of the Racial Divide Part 2″ By Ronald Chatman 7-1-05

FOR THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW THE STREETS OF LOS ANGELES ARE CONTROLLED BY  POLITICS BOTH GANG RELATED AND RACIAL.
THE ISSUES OF RACE ARE BECOMING CRITICAL TO THE INHABITANTS OF THE CITY.

THE BARRIER OF LANGUAGE HAS BECOME A MAJOR OBSTACLE AMONG THE CITIZENS
OF THE CITY OF ANGELS.

IT IS ALMOST AS IF YOU ARE NOT BI-LINGUAL YOU DON’T BELONG HERE.

THE BLACK AND MEXICAN PEOPLE ARE COMPARIBLE TO THE MUSLIMS AND JEWS
FIGHTING FOR CONTROL OF THE GROUNDS OF ISRAEL OR PALESTINE.

WE ARE TWO SEPARATE CULTURES BOTH CORRUPTED BY EUROPEAN CONQUEST. ONE
WITH DESCENT AND LINEAGE TRANSCENDING FROM THE DARK CONTINENT OF AFRICA,
THE OTHER FROM A RICH HISTORY OF AZTEC, MAYAN, SCHUMACK AND OTHER TRIBAL
CIVILIZATIONS WERE OPPRESSED BY EUROPEAN VOYAGERS.

BLACK HISTORY WAS CORRUPTED BY SLAVERY FROM EUROPEANS THAT CONQUERED
THE LAND THAT RIGHTFULLY BELONGED TO THE NATIVES OF NORTH AMERICA AND
USED THE SLAVE LABOR OF THE BLACK RACE TO HOMESTEAD AND BUILD ON IT.

THE NATIVE TRIBES OF WHAT IS NOW CALIFORNIA AND MEXICO WERE OPPRESSED BY
EUROPEAN CONQUEST ALSO, AND THEIR LAND WAS ROBBED OF ALL OF ITS RICHES.

THE INDIGINEOUS ANCESTORS OF THE MEXICAN PEOPLE WERE IMPRISONED WITHIN
THE WALLS OF THE GREAT MISSIONS OF CALIFORNIA AND ENSLAVED IN THE NAME OF
CHRISTIANITY.

THE OPPRESSION OF BLACKS AND MEXICANS IS INFLICTED ON EITHER RACE OF
PEOPLE BY THE OPPOSING.

THE STREETS OF LOS ANGELES ARE NO SAFER THAN THE STREETS OF IRAQ.

THE WORLD IS A GHETTO AND THE WARS OF THE WORLD ALWAYS TAKE PLACE AMONG
THE PEOPLE OF THE GHETTO.

IF YOU ARE NOT FROM LOS ANGELES DON’T GO TO THERE THINKING EVERYBODY IS
ON SOME PEACEFUL SHIT BECAUSE YOU COULD NOT BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.

IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD OF WEST ADAMS NEIGHBORHOOD ROLLIN 20’s BLOODS ARE AT
WAR WITH THE CRIPS, AND THE HISPANIC GANGS 18ST, MID CITY 13, AND A/T/C 13.

SO DON’T COME TO WEST ADAMS, LOS ANGELES THINKING WE ARE ON SOME TRUCIN
SHIT BECAUSE THAT’S A GOOD WAY TO GET CARRIED OUT BY THE MEAT WAGON WITH A
HEAD FULL OF LEAD.

THE TRUCE WAS AMONG THE GANGS OF WATTS BACK IN 1992, THAT DIDN’T GOVERN
ALL OF THE GANGS OF SOUTH CENTRAL L.A.

EVEN THOUGH RACE RELATIONS ARE DETERIORATING BETWEEN BLACKS AND
MEXICANS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WE ARE STILL CAUGHT UP IN A CYCLE OF
TRIBALISM AND GENOCIDE AMONG OURSELVES.

OUR TWO RACES ARE FIGHTING FOR CONTROL OF THE GROUND WE WALK ON. WE ARE
WILLING TO TERMINATE ONE ANOTHER IN THE NAME OF ETHNIC CLEANSING. SHOULD
THE DAY COME WHEN ONE OF THESE TWO RACES DESTROYS THE OTHER, THE
VICTORIOUS WILL THEN TURN THEIR GUNS ON EACH OTHER, BECAUSE MEN ARE WAR
MONGERS AND IT IS IN OUR NATURE TO FIGHT. THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH ARE BASED
ON WAR, ALPHA BEGAN IN WAR AND OMEGA WILL END IN WAR.

THE WORD COMES FROM BEHIND THE WALLS OF MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISONS LIKE
PELICAN BAY AND IT IS PUT INTO ACTION WHEN IT IS HEARD WITHIN THE STREETS.
THERE IS A LOT OF TROUBLE IN THE MEAN STREETS OF L.A. SO IT IS NOT HARD TO FIND
AND IT’S NOT HARD TO GET INTO.

RACISM HAS A LONGER ARM THAN THE LAW. BELIEVE IT OR NOT THE MAJORITY OF
OUR RACIAL HATRED BEGAN IN THE PRISONS, NOW OUR KIDS ARE EXPRESSING IT IN
SCHOOL FROM DAY TO DAY. THE GANGS OF LOS ANGELES OPERATE AS SOVERIGN
NATIONS IN A MILITARILY OCCUPIED ZONE. CIVILIANS ARE NOT EVEN INNOCENT
ANYMORE BECAUSE RACE HAS BECOME THE ISSUE AT HAND.

IT WILL BE THE FATE OF OUR CHILDREN TO CARRY THIS BURDEN OF RACIAL HATRED
INTO THE FUTURE LONG AFTER WE HAVE ALL KILLED ONE ANOTHER DUE TO OUR OWN
IGNORANCE.

EMPLOYMENT IS BECOMING HARDER AND HARDER FOR BLACK PEOPLE IN LOS
ANGELES BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF US SPEAK ONE LANGUAGE AND UNDERSTAND
NO SPANISH. SINCE THE CRACK EPIDEMIC OF THE 80’s, A GREAT MAJORITY OF BLACK
PEOPLE RELENQUISHED THEIR ALL THEIR RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITIES, AND LAND IN
EXCHANGE FOR AN ETERNAL NIGHTMARE OF DRUG ADDICTION. AS A RESULT OF THE
LOSSES OF LAND ENDURED DUE TO THE PLAGUE OF ROCK COCAINE, IT IS EVEN
DIFFICULT FOR BLACK FAMILIES TO FIND ADEQUATE HOUSING IN THE CITY OF LOS
ANGELES.

BLACK PEOPLE IN L.A. ARE AT WAR JUST TO EXIST AND RESIDE IN DECENT CONDITIONS.
IN ALL TRUE ACTUALITY TWO IMPOVERISHED RACES OF PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO
FIND COMMON GROUND FOR THE PROLIFERATION OF A PEACEFUL FUTURE.

ANTONIO VILLAIGOSA HAS BEEN ELECTED THE MAYOR OF LOS ANGELES WITHIN THE
LAST FEW MONTHS. HE IS THE FIRST MEXICAN MAYOR OF LOS ANGELES IN 130 YEARS.
LOS ANGELES WAS INCORPORATED AS A CITY APRIL 4, 1850 THAT MEANS THERE HAS
NOT BEEN A HISPANIC MAYOR IN SUCH A CITY OF GREAT HISPANIC CULTURE
PRACTICALLY SINCE ITS BEGINNING. MEXICAN PRESIDENT VINCENTE FOX MADE A
STATEMENT IN THE NEWS ABOUT ILLEGAL ALIENS TAKING JOBS THAT EVEN BLACKS
WOULDN’T TAKE AND NOW SOME VIEW HIM AS A RACIST. WAS HE SPEAKING THE TRUTH
OR WAS HE BEING DEROGATORY? I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON HOW EACH PERSON TOOK
IT.

PEOPLE IN HIGH PLACES HAVE TO WATCH THEIR WORDS, BECAUSE ONCE THEY ARE
SAID, THERE IS NO TAKING THEM BACK.

ALL GREAT GESTURES OF PEACE MUST BEGIN WITH WAR. IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE PEACE
THERE MUST FIRST BE A BLOODY WAR AND A GREAT NUMBER OF LIVES MUST BE
SACRIFICED TO THAT WAR. IN ORDER TO APPRECIATE, LAND WE LIVE ON, THE BLOOD
OF OUR FOREFATHERS MUST FIRST BE SHED ON THAT SOIL.

The North American Slave Trade BEGAN IN LATIN AMERICA BECAUSE DUMB ASS
CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS THOUGHT HE LANDED IN INDIA WHEN HE WAS EXILED FROM
EUROPE. THERE ARE MORE DESCENDANTS OF AFRICAN SLAVES SOUTH OF THE
MEXICAN BORDER THAN IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

AT WHAT POINT IN TIME DID LANGUAGE AND DARK SKIN BECOME THE DIVIDING
ELEMENTS OF OUR TWO CULTURES? I GUESS WE ARE ALL STILL ENSLAVED
PSYCHOLOGCALLY.

IN THE KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE IT READS,”BUT THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT
THE EARTH; AND SHALL DELIGHT THEMSELVES IN THE ABUNDANCE OF PEACE.” IF THAT
IS TRUE WHO SHALL INHERIT THE VAST WASTELANDS OF LOS ANGELES THAT IS BEING
FOUGHT OVER BY BLACKS AND MEXICANS AS IF WE WERE THE TRIBES OF ISAAC AND
ISHMAEL?

NEITHER OF OUR RACES IS CAPABLE OF ANNIHILATING THE OTHER, IN THE FUTURE WE
WILL REALIZE, WE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT EACH OTHER. ONLY THE POOR FIGHT FOR
NOTHING AND THE WEALTHY HAVE NOTHING TO FIGHT FOR. ALL I CAN DO IS PRAY FOR
PEACE AND PROSPERITY FOR ALL, AS I STAND AS A BLACK MAN ON MY SIDE OF THE
RACIAL DIVIDE.
