I spent about five hours today watching the broadcast on C-SPAN of the 20th Anniversary of The Million Man March (MMM).
I will admit that as a middle-aged white woman growing up in the Deep South, all I heard prior to a few months ago about Minister Louis Farrakhan and The Nation of Islam (NOI) was either soundbites from mainstream media (MSM) or things repeated by others who had listened to soundbites from MSM.
Several months ago, Minister Farrakhan made a statement that he would include information about #cdcwhistleblower and the increased risk of autism from MMR vaccine to African-American males, as part of today’s platform.
Minister Tony Muhammad spoke today about the #cdcWhistleblower, and about the harm that has been done to African-American children and Latino children from the MMR vaccine (and other vaccines).
I am so VERY thankful that the issue of vaccine-injury and the increased risk to susceptible groups is finally being addressed to a very large audience.
So often, it is just us. Preaching to the choir.
Today was monumental.
During his speech today, Minister Tony Muhammad made a statement that the MMR vaccine and other vaccines “have been genetically modified to attack Black and Latino boys.”
I have already received some messages expressing concern about this statement.
I also had some concerns when I first heard this statement from Minister Farrakhan, shortly after he met with Dr. Brian Hooker and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., months ago.
I have examined my own emotional response… as a white, middle-class woman… and I am attempting now to respond to those who also have had an immediate emotional response.
I can’t help but think about the genocide of Native Americans who were wiped out by smallpox, which was intentionally spread to them through blankets that were “gifted to them” by the white soldiers who wanted their land. The atrocities enacted upon Native Americans by European invaders (“immigrants” to the North American continent) have been largely accepted in our modern age. It wasn’t so very long ago, however, that Native Americans were portrayed in the media as “aggressive savages.”
The truth about what happened to many millions of Native Americans is no longer hotly debated by intelligent people, and the role of our white ancestors in the atrocities is now widely accepted as fact.
For some reason, we aren’t there yet with African-Americans.
Could the differing responses be related to our (white) fears?
After-all… We (white Americans) don’t really have much to worry about from the Native American Community. We have successfully contained them. The same cannot be said about the African-American community – and especially not about those highly educated and enlightened members of society, including members of NOI.
There is a big difference.
Could that difference be a contributing factor in why none of the major networks covered today’s #MillionManMarch? The possibility certainly seems plausible to me.
There is still a huge amount of denial by many white Americans about the shameful role our ancestors and our government played in the kidnapping, torture, killing, and subjugation of human beings from African countries – for the furtherance of white wealth.
Growing up in the Deep South, I have heard the following statements all my life:
1. It’s time for them to get over it.
2. It was my ancestors. It wasn’t me.
3. I don’t owe “them” anything.
As I am writing this, I wonder how many of my white friends have preconceived ideas (As I did; based on MSM) about the Nation of Islam and #BlackLivesMatter, and how many of my friends actually took the time today to listen to what was being said in Washington, D.C.
We just cannot continue to believe we are “informed” about each other without spending time listening. That includes listening to things that make us uncomfortable and which go against what we have “always believed.”
Is it true that the MMR and other vaccines are intentionally genetically modified to cause more severe reactions in African-Americans and Latinos?
I don’t know. Neither do you.
What we do know is that there is a senior CDC scientist who admits the MMR vaccine causes autism much more often (236% increased risk) in African-American male children than in their non-black peers.
We also know there are more than 100,000 documents that have been turned over by this CDC scientist, Dr. William Thompson, to Congressman Bill Posey.
We know that Bill Posey has asked Congress to investigate – not only the MMR vaccine and the 2004 study – but the ENTIRE body of work produced by the CDC Vaccine Research Division.
Until that investigation is accomplished, we have no idea of the truth.
I would ask all of my friends and followers who are questioning what to believe, to please remember this… (in the paraphrased words of Tony Muhammad, speaking in Los Angeles against SB277), “The same media you have been listening to about us (or “them”), is the media that has been lying about you and your children’s vaccine-injuries.”
Please help stand for truth, and do not be drawn into spin that divides us.
As Ava Muhammad said today, “Fight for those who fight with you.”
When it comes to vaccine-injuries, and the abuse and fraud at The CDC, this is most definitely a #UniversalFight
