MY SIDE OF THE RACIAL DIVIDE – PART 2

RACE RELATIONS AND POLITICS BETWEEN BLACKS AND MEXICANS INSIDE LOS ANGELES

By Ronald Chatman A.K.A. O/G MADD RONALD1

FOR THOSE THAT DON’T KNOW, THE STREETS OF LOS ANGELES ARE RULED BY PRISON POLITICS.

THE ISSUES OF RACE ARE BECOMING CRITICAL TO THE INHABITANTS OF THE CITY.

THE BARRIER OF LANGUAGE HAS BECOME A MAJOR OBSTACLE AMONG THE CITIZENS OF THE CITY OF ANGELS.

IT IS ALMOST AS IF YOU ARE NOT BI-LINGUAL YOU DON’T BELONG HERE.

THE BLACK AND MEXICAN PEOPLE ARE COMPARIBLE TO THE MUSLIMS AND JEWS FIGHTING FOR CONTROL OF THE GROUNDS OF ISRAEL OR PALESTINE.

WE ARE TWO SEPARATE CULTURES BOTH CORRUPTED BY EUROPEAN CONQUEST. ONE WITH DESCENT AND LINEAGE TRANSCENDING FROM THE DARK CONTINENT OF AFRICA, THE OTHER FROM A RICH HISTORY OF AZTEC, MAYAN, SCHUMACK AND OTHER TRIBAL CIVILIZATIONS WERE OPPRESSED BY EUROPEAN VOYAGERS.

BLACK HISTORY WAS CORRUPTED BY SLAVERY FROM EUROPEANS THAT CONQUERED THE LAND THAT RIGHTFULLY BELONGED TO THE NATIVES OF NORTH AMERICA AND USED THE SLAVE LABOR OF THE BLACK RACE TO HOMESTEAD AND BUILD ON IT.

THE NATIVE TRIBES OF WHAT IS NOW CALIFORNIA AND MEXICO WERE OPPRESSED BY EUROPEAN CONQUEST ALSO, AND THEIR LAND WAS ROBBED OF ALL OF ITS RICHES.

THE INDIGINEOUS ANCESTORS OF THE MEXICAN PEOPLE WERE IMPRISONED WITHIN THE WALLS OF THE GREAT MISSIONS OF CALIFORNIA AND ENSLAVED IN THE NAME OF CHRISTIANITY.

THE OPPRESSION OF BLACKS AND MEXICANS IS INFLICTED ON EITHER RACE OF PEOPLE BY THE OPPOSING.

THE STREETS OF LOS ANGELES ARE NO SAFER THAN THE STREETS OF IRAQ.

THE WORLD IS A GHETTO AND THE WARS OF THE WORLD ALWAYS TAKE PLACE AMONG THE PEOPLE OF THE GHETTO.

IF YOU ARE NOT FROM LOS ANGELES DON’T GO TO THERE THINKING EVERYBODY IS ON SOME PEACEFUL SHIT BECAUSE YOU COULD NOT BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.

IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD OF WEST ADAMS NEIGHBORHOOD ROLLIN 20’s BLOODS ARE AT WAR WITH THE CRIPS, AND THE HISPANIC GANGS 18ST, MID CITY 13, AND A/T/C 13.

SO DON’T COME TO WEST ADAMS, LOS ANGELES THINKING WE ARE ON SOME TRUCIN SHIT BECAUSE THAT’S A GOOD WAY TO GET CARRIED OUT BY THE MEAT WAGON WITH A HEAD FULL OF LEAD.

THE TRUCE WAS AMONG THE GANGS OF WATTS BACK IN 1992, THAT DIDN’T GOVERN ALL OF THE GANGS OF SOUTH CENTRAL L.A.

EVEN THOUGH RACE RELATIONS ARE DETERIORATING BETWEEN BLACKS AND MEXICANS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WE ARE STILL CAUGHT UP IN A CYCLE OF TRIBALISM AND GENOCIDE AMONG OURSELVES.

OUR TWO RACES ARE FIGHTING FOR CONTROL OF THE GROUND WE WALK ON. WE ARE WILLING TO TERMINATE ONE ANOTHER IN THE NAME OF ETHNIC CLEANSING. SHOULD THE DAY COME WHEN ONE OF THESE TWO RACES DESTROYS THE OTHER, THE VICTORIOUS WILL THEN TURN THEIR GUNS ON EACH OTHER, BECAUSE MEN ARE WAR MONGERS AND IT IS IN OUR NATURE TO FIGHT. THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH ARE BASED ON WAR, ALPHA BEGAN IN WAR AND OMEGA WILL END IN WAR.

THE WORD COMES FROM BEHIND THE WALLS OF MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISONS LIKE PELICAN BAY AND IT IS PUT INTO ACTION WHEN IT IS HEARD WITHIN THE STREETS. THERE IS A LOT OF TROUBLE IN THE MEAN STREETS OF L.A. SO IT IS NOT HARD TO FIND AND IT’S NOT HARD TO GET INTO.

RACISM HAS A LONGER ARM THAN THE LAW. BELIEVE IT OR NOT THE MAJORITY OF OUR RACIAL HATRED BEGAN IN THE PRISONS, NOW OUR KIDS ARE EXPRESSING IT IN SCHOOL FROM DAY TO DAY. THE GANGS OF LOS ANGELES OPERATE AS SOVERIGN NATIONS IN A MILITARILY OCCUPIED ZONE. CIVILIANS ARE NOT EVEN INNOCENT ANYMORE BECAUSE RACE HAS BECOME THE ISSUE AT HAND.

IT WILL BE THE FATE OF OUR CHILDREN TO CARRY THIS BURDEN OF RACIAL HATRED INTO THE FUTURE LONG AFTER WE HAVE ALL KILLED ONE ANOTHER DUE TO OUR OWN IGNORANCE.

EMPLOYMENT IS BECOMING HARDER AND HARDER FOR BLACK PEOPLE IN LOS ANGELES BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF US SPEAK ONE LANGUAGE AND UNDERSTAND NO SPANISH. SINCE THE CRACK EPIDEMIC OF THE 80’s, A GREAT MAJORITY OF BLACK PEOPLE RELENQUISHED THEIR ALL THEIR RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITIES, AND LAND IN EXCHANGE FOR AN ETERNAL NIGHTMARE OF DRUG ADDICTION. AS A RESULT OF THE LOSSES OF LAND ENDURED DUE TO THE PLAGUE OF ROCK COCAINE, IT IS EVEN DIFFICULT FOR BLACK FAMILIES TO FIND ADEQUATE HOUSING IN THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES.

BLACK PEOPLE IN L.A. ARE AT WAR JUST TO EXIST AND RESIDE IN DECENT CONDITIONS. IN ALL TRUE ACTUALITY TWO IMPOVERISHED RACES OF PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND COMMON GROUND FOR THE PROLIFERATION OF A PEACEFUL FUTURE.

ANTONIO VILLAIGOSA HAS BEEN ELECTED THE MAYOR OF LOS ANGELES WITHIN THE LAST FEW MONTHS. HE IS THE FIRST MEXICAN MAYOR OF LOS ANGELES IN 130 YEARS. LOS ANGELES WAS INCORPORATED AS A CITY APRIL 4, 1850 THAT MEANS THERE HAS NOT BEEN A HISPANIC MAYOR IN SUCH A CITY OF GREAT HISPANIC CULTURE PRACTICALLY SINCE ITS BEGINNING. MEXICAN PRESIDENT VINCENTE FOX MADE A STATEMENT IN THE NEWS ABOUT ILLEGAL ALIENS TAKING JOBS THAT EVEN BLACKS WOULDN’T TAKE AND NOW SOME VIEW HIM AS A RACIST. WAS HE SPEAKING THE TRUTH OR WAS HE BEING DEROGATORY? I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON HOW EACH PERSON TOOK IT.

PEOPLE IN HIGH PLACES HAVE TO WATCH THEIR WORDS, BECAUSE ONCE THEY ARE SAID, THERE IS NO TAKING THEM BACK.

ALL GREAT GESTURES OF PEACE MUST BEGIN WITH WAR. IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE PEACE THERE MUST FIRST BE A BLOODY WAR AND A GREAT NUMBER OF LIVES MUST BE SACRIFICED TO THAT WAR. IN ORDER TO APPRECIATE, LAND WE LIVE ON, THE BLOOD OF OUR FOREFATHERS MUST FIRST BE SHED ON THAT SOIL.

The North American Slave Trade BEGAN IN LATIN AMERICA BECAUSE DUMB ASS CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS THOUGHT HE LANDED IN INDIA WHEN HE WAS EXILED FROM EUROPE. THERE ARE MORE DESCENDANTS OF AFRICAN SLAVES SOUTH OF THE MEXICAN BORDER THAN IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

AT WHAT POINT IN TIME DID LANGUAGE AND DARK SKIN BECOME THE DIVIDING ELEMENTS OF OUR TWO CULTURES? I GUESS WE ARE ALL STILL ENSLAVED PSYCHOLOGCALLY.

IN THE KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE IT READS,”BUT THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH; AND SHALL DELIGHT THEMSELVES IN THE ABUNDANCE OF PEACE.” IF THAT IS TRUE WHO SHALL INHERIT THE VAST WASTELANDS OF LOS ANGELES THAT IS BEING FOUGHT OVER BY BLACKS AND MEXICANS AS IF WE WERE THE TRIBES OF ISAAC AND ISHMAEL?

NEITHER OF OUR RACES IS CAPABLE OF ANNIHILATING THE OTHER, IN THE FUTURE WE WILL REALIZE, WE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT EACH OTHER. ONLY THE POOR FIGHT FOR NOTHING AND THE WEALTHY HAVE NOTHING TO FIGHT FOR. ALL I CAN DO IS PRAY FOR PEACE AND PROSPERITY FOR ALL, AS I STAND AS A BLACK MAN ON MY SIDE OF THE RACIAL DIVIDE.

    Wonderful insight. Ignorance will always breed hate. As a young Mexican-American growing up in Southern California, I was at times exposed to this ignorance. You are a inevitably a product of your environment. If you grew up around black people, you will have black friends. The same goes if you grew up with Mexicans, you will have Mexican friends.

    It is unfortunate that the politics of California prisons have spilled onto the streets and have manifested into a black and brown conflict. These conflicts will continue as long as we–as Black and Latino men–can set the example for our communities and show these children how a real man is supposed to conduct himself and take care of his family and community. We must all unite against the common “real” enemies known as poverty, lack of education, and child illegitimacy rates. Only then will these petty street “wars” subside.
