Shaun King is one of the vocal leaders in the #BlackLivesMatter movement and has been recently targeted by Conservative media for allegedly being white and not black. Very understandable considering the fact he does look white and not much is given about his background. Personally, I could care less about his supposed race, because race isn’t some tangible thing since people of varying melanin content, which is what race is based off anyways, can reproduce without any problems whatsoever. So race is just a non-existent idea that we give so much credence to as if it were some sacred thing. It shouldn’t be encouraged, but people like Shaun King, Al Sharpton and others encourage the worship of race.
Back to Shaun King, lets say that if he were actually a white person posing as a black person, he would be basically usurping the struggle which blacks have had to hurdle over in order to be seen as human beings. Shaun King also received a scholarship from Oprah Winfrey due to his racial identity as “black”, so if he is white then this is a problem as well considering that scholarship would’ve gone to an actual black student to use for their advancement in life. Yes, he’s done some nice things, but how does lying and lacking honor alleviate that since a black student could’ve used that scholarship? If I were black I know I’d be plenty pissed off that some white person is using a struggle and an identity to benefit himself.
With that all said, Shaun King can do something that will put all of this to rest once and for all: genetic testing. Genetic testing will provide the necessary haplogroup which will 100% show whether or not he is lying and instead of bashing the conservative media he should be getting genetically tested and posting those results online for everyone to see. Wouldn’t it be nice to let those who were suspicious of you and wrote articles condemning you for your alleged full blooded Caucasian ancestry? I know I would if I were in Shaun Kings shoes.
So, how about a genetic test, Shaun King? Prove to us who you claim to be, after all the onus is on the one who makes such claims.
In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years?
In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years? – Stephen Hawking
I’ll do my best to answer this question posited by Stephen Hawking back in 2006.
First and foremost, humanity must recognize it’s kinship by disposing of the idea of race. This very thing is the greatest barrier that plagues our species. We are blind to our close relation to each other and deny the fact that the human race is only one race and NOT an amalgamation of races under the umbrella of the Human genus. Race is nothing but traits produced by evolution within a given environment and nothing more. It’s sadly held in sacrosanct these days all over the world, but it’s a disease and who in their right mind holds a disease as an idol? It’s a disease that infects the mind, blinding human beings of their potential. Potential is destroyed because once you apply that ridiculous label of “white”, “black” and etc. you pigeonhole yourself and everyone inside and outside of your “race” expects you to be something within the parameters of that “races” limited scope. Once you discard “race” like garbage, you are free to wander the landscape before without any borders or restrictions. You no longer have to worry about someone saying “You’re acting white/black/Asian/Hispanic….etc.” because it will no longer matter because it is no longer sacred. Therefore your full potential can be unlocked.
Humanity has always been divided by it’s tribalistic nature and still is tribalistic today, but today people actually want that to remain because it is profitable to them. What they don’t understand is that it’s helping pull our species towards extinction because all of the resources and energy needed to progress humanity is being wasted on petty things like racial division. Despite our divisions we have done amazing things in the areas of science, philosophy, art and so forth. Now, I dare you to imagine what we could do if we were united once and for all as the Human Race. That is the crux of my answer and why it is absolutely important to overcome race all together. Once we discard race we will heave ourselves over the wall that has separated humanity and come together to figure out solutions for everything that ails our species. Everything will come into play once we are united and nothing can stop us but ourselves.
This is how we progress in the universe.
As we progress further into the 21st Century, racial tensions have increased by the simplistic manipulation by the New Royalty aka the politicians of both the Left and the Right and the Race Baiting minions of said politicians. Race is the disease that infests the human mind like a virus running rampant destroying life giving cells on the body. Instead of destroying the body of the host, it destroys the mind of the person and creates the illusion that we humans are different in any way. Except we aren’t different, we are all of the same species. The only thing different is the amount of melanin contained within the flesh of human beings. This is simply superficial, but because we are a superficial species race tends to be held sacrosanct, an idol of worship that a lot of people get on their knees and blindly follow. Race, in other words, is nothing but an illusion created by the powers that be to control the population via forced culture (aka stereotypes) and absolute division. With unity of the human species comes true solutions and power unlike anything we have ever seen.
If humanity were to cast aside their pride and realize the destructive nature of recognizing race, we would be able to solve the problems that afflict this planet because no borders would separate us anymore. We would be united for the common cause of bettering our species. We could finally prove to the universe that we are a species able to overcome our petty, superficial differences. People like David Duke, Saida Grundy, and other race baiting, fear mongering zealots would not be able to profit anymore on keeping humanity divided. We would be too educated afterwards to allow these hateful zealots room in our hearts and minds. We would finally be set free from the shackles that recognizing race puts us in. Our full potential would be used once and for all for everyone and not a select few.
Humanity must once and for all be united as one race, the Human Race! That is who we are regardless of the traits of high melanin content or not given to us by evolution of our species in certain environments. We are Human Beings, not black, white, red, brown, yellow or whatever else. Those superficial labels destroy our species, keeps us divided, and harms people along the way. Racial recognition is an evil that needs to be stamped out like an ember that threatens a forest on a dry, summer day. Today, from here on out, make a commitment to yourself and others that you will no longer see them as one of those superficial labels, but as a fellow traveler on our planet Earth, as a Human Being! Boldly proclaim that we are all Brothers and Sisters of Earth and of one race, the Human Race! This is the revolution we truly need right now!
The current state of affairs between all races in this country are atrocious. The Left have people believing that white people, their supposed privilege and ignorance are to blame the lack of opportunities for blacks while the Right screams, in varying volumes, white genocide. Both are horrificly wrong. If both sides would step down from their lofty towers down to the level of us common folk, they’d realize how wrong they are, but then this would mean they have been lying and reduces the likelihood of getting what they truly want: votes. Creating a division between people establishes a power structure for both Left and Right to maintain via fear. That power structure also allows politicians to keep their careers going while promising change that never comes to fruition. The scapegoats tend to be the party opposite of the one scapegoating. A stalemate is required to keep power while keeping busy with racial strife so that we the people don’t rebel against an inept system if government. The real war isn’t between blacks and whites, but between the politicians and the people. The Left and Right are both villains keeping people divided along racial grounds. This doesn’t progress our society, it only hinders it. Americans of all races need to unite against the behemoth of Left and Right oligarchy that wants a totalitarian system more than freedom and well being for all.
One of my favorite TV shows on these days is Black Sails by far. This past weekend they threw in a zinger that really ruffled the sexually insecure among us by showing that Captain Flint had an affair with Miranda Barlows husband that cost him a place in the Royal Navy and his lover committed to an asylum for “grief”. This apparently, despite the plethora of lesbian action, ruffled the homophobes who watch the show. Seriously, I don’t see the problem. Gods forbid if some reality is thrown into the show. It’s not pushing the so-called gay agenda, you can stop watching show and not contribute to it anymore or you can enjoy the story being told, keyword being story. It’s a story like any other and deserves some attention.
