Black America & the Rising Tide of Color Facing European Borders

“…whether they advance sword in hand or in the more insidious guise of beggars at our gates, pleading for admittance to share our prosperity. If we continue to allow them to enter they will in time drive us out of our own land by mere force of breeding.”

~ T. Lothrop Stoddard; The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy

Over the past few weeks, there’s been a continued discussion among Black Americans, as to whether we should support our Haitian brothers and sisters being held in open air concentration camps, at America’s southern border. The fact that this is even a question shows just how menticidal we’ve become, due to our collective reliance on colonial borders, for a sense of national identity. We’ve allowed these lines of European demarcation to divorce us from our historical memory, by dismembering our body into anatomical parts, that are only known by the sheets — we call flags — that cover them.
