When I think about the title of this blog I have to remember that I first heard this term over fifty years ago during the civil rights era of the 60’s. It seemed that anything that had to do with the subject of the rights of people of color had a symbiotic relationship to the white woman and her struggle to gain equality in a white male based society. The rights of women continue today when it comes to the right to have an abortion of an unwanted pregnancy. In the state of Alabama the female Governor signed into law that a woman can no longer get a legal abortion no matter what the cause of the pregnancy except for extreme medical reasons.
The majority of the legislators who voted for this bill were white men who like most men no matter what their color or beliefs feel a need to control the females of our species’s minds and bodies as much as humanly possible. The history of mankind has always been about the empowerment and the domination of male ego over other men and women in general.
Even though this term is not used anymore by the media the mindset of those who are in leadership roles for the most part, white males still want to cling to power even at the expense of a woman’s right to control her reproductive rights. The struggle continues.
The escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran during our presidential election cycle is a gift to president Trump going forward. News reports of the Pentagon preparing to send an additional 120,000 troops to the area along with an Aircraft carrier group already in place as a deterrent to the Iranians. Iran recently stated that they consider all American troops to be terrorists. If American troops become involved in a combat situation whether in the middle east or even the situation in Venezuela the American people will rally behind the president as they have always done in the past.
This would make all of those who are currently campaigning to replace him practically mute on the national stage. World events will be on the front burner for the president to finally pay attention to or ignore if he so chooses. The investigation of the Russians involvement in his election has gone nowhere after two years of media coverage against him.
Congress’s desire to take down the president has not gone unnoticed by our enemies as they would use this distraction to move forward with their own agendas on the world stage. America’s internal problems must be balanced along with the responsibility of being a world power if we are to survive a society.
