ANGIE THOMAS – THE HATE U GIVE – 2017
BLACK AND WHITE POST TRAUMATIC SLAVERY STRESS SYNDROME
This novel is a manifesto on black literature, though the author does not know about that. It is vastly inspired by a rap singer she calls Supac and his famous album THUG LIFE, Volume 1 (1994). . .
And wait for the Blacks to be freed from the prisons: there are at the present moment as many Blacks incarcerated in all prisons as there used to be slaves in 1861, and these prisoners all work for private businesses or for their prison administration for a pittance. That is modern slavery. This and that put together, it promises a very difficult wakeup call in a few years, even maybe in just plain one year to all the white supremacists or those who use white supremacy to conquer and consolidate their power.
That’s how Obama won two elections with the majority of all ethnic minorities and a minority of the Caucasian vote: 20 to 25% of it is enough with 90% of Blacks, Latinos and Asians, non-Caucasians of all sorts.
Remember Charlottesville, the modern version of El Alamo.
