There’s a Stranger in the House

I take a moment from Madinina Kiss, to address a concern that will affect all Americans: The effects of the Executive Order attempting to ban certain groups of people from entering the United States.

I guess as an African- American woman, I should be sitting back with some popcorn and a glass of wine and watch this horrific movie we are calling “The United States of America”.  Contrary to popular belief, like the ones in office, we, as Black People, stand for justice, civil liberties and freedom.  I mean we had to fight for it ourselves, right?

When there was a cry to our Great Nation that #BlackLivesMatter, we were ridiculed, and mocked us by saying #AllLivesMatter? Really?   Yet hee we are defending not only Black Lives but Gay Lives, Women Lives, Muslim Lives, Womb Lives all because The Nation would not listen.

Now we are facing immigration ban issues, among other things, targeting the Muslims, (and not to mention that there is the threat to women’s reproductive rights that is about to set us back 50 years), we all forgot one group of people: The Native Americans.

We, as “Americans”  are standing on stolen property.  Fighting for equal rights while we are forgetting the ones who truly deserve “equal” rights, not tribunal sovereignty. Turning away innocent people will not change 9-11.  It will not bring back the loved lost, not=r erase that horrific day from our memories.  So why is our new President, so hell bent on condemning those who took no part in the acts of terrorism?  Who are themselves looking to escape from the suffering of those countries? Did we forget that our country was based on the same principal? Were not our “founding fathers” seeking religious freedom?  and yet here is a man, who is unconstitutionally seeking undo the foundation of what he claims “Makes America Great!”

Since he wants to put up borders, why not tear down Ellis Island, and return the Statue Of Liberty to France?

Please remember: IF YOU ARE NOT A NATIVE AMERICAN, YOU ARE AN IMMIGRANT.  If you came to the U.S. against your will, you are an immigrant.

17 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.  18 He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing.  19 And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt.

Never Forget Whose Land We are Occupying,
