“America’s chickens are coming home to roost! We took this country by terror away from the Sioux, the Apache, the Arawak, the Comanche, the Arapaho, the Navajo. Terrorism! We took Africans from their country to build our way of ease and kept them enslaved and living in fear. Terrorism! We bombed Grenada and killed innocent civilians, babies, non-military personnel. We bombed the black civilian community of Panama with stealth bombers and killed unarmed teenagers and toddlers, pregnant mothers and hard-working fathers. We bombed Gadafi’s home and killed his child. ‘Blessed are they who bash your children’s head against a rock!’We bombed Iraq. We killed unarmed civilians trying to make a living. We bombed a plant in Sudan to pay bac for the attack on our embassy. Killed hundreds of hard-working people; mothers and fathers who left home to go that day, not knowing that they would never get back home. We bombed Hiroshima! We bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye! Kids playing in the playground, mothers picking up children after school, civilians – not soldiers – people just trying to make it day by day. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and Black South Africans, and now we are indignant? Because the stuff we have done overseas has now been brought back into our own front yards! America’s chickens are coming home to roost! Violence begets violence. Hatred begets hatred and terrorism begets terrorism.”
Has any song ever been so relevant? Remember when people made fun of me for having this on repeat?
You know what I want? What I really, really want? Garlic bread with cheese. From Pizza Hut. I have yet to find a garlic bread that satisfies me more than that garlic bread, and I’m tempted to go to Pizza Hut right now just for that. Because at least I don’t have to worry that someone’s going to shoot me dead for being a brown, Muslim girl going to go get some garlic bread.
But right now, I’m feeling sorry for hard-working and educated Americans.
“THIS IS AMERICA BITCH”. As I said those words, you imaged a white, aggressive male, probably from a Southern state. Now times that by a bajillion and that’s how many people are now openly using ‘this is America’ to fuel their racism.
“This is America, bitch” now means “This is a land where I can be racist, shoot you, also Mexicans and Muslims get out. My president said so.”
