Know this Black America. 156 years ago, a mere historical blink of an eye, our

ancestors were violently shorn from the bondage of physical, plantation slavery.

Little did they know they were then headed from that jettisoned plantation to

another, this time an insidious political plantation of Jim Crow, segregation and

day-today discrimination. This a burning injustice that continues to glow as

bright as the midday sun.

Throughout history, it has been evident that political parties must evolve or

perish. Quite clearly, today’s Republican party is in an implosive death spiral of

representing an ever-diminishing demographic of angry, white, elderly males.

That much is a given. However, so too is today’s Democratic party as it refuses

to ditch the likes of hillbilly Joe Manchin or turn-coat, wannabe Republican yet

epic failure, Eric Adams.

We have visited this issue before, the meaningless two-party system that has

dominated US politics for decades now, and it is worth visiting it again. A

pendulum that swings between racist and racist-lite, is nothing more than a

racist pendulum. The litmus test of that then is this – if after years and years

of either Democrat or Republican presidents and administrations, socio-

economic conditions for Black Americans have not improved at all. In fact, they

have markedly worsened with increasingly horrific police brutality, mass

incarceration, and a system that allows the scum of the alt-right to find ground

in the political mainstream. And of course, the dangerous joke that was Donald


Conservative Manchin sees him self as a king-maker in a Senate that tilts ever

so gently in favor of the Democrats. Yet the royal robes he professes to wear

are as see-through as his phony progressive credentials. Don’t be fooled by Eric

Adams either. Originally a strident voice against “stop and frisk” policing, he

has now, unbelievably, reversed his position on that. Like a supposed

“abolitionist” that goes on to embrace slavery, it’s a pathetic as it is dangerous.

All this against the back-drop of mass incarceration of millions of Black African

men being the brainchild of Joe Biden (Democrat) that was signed into law by

then president Bill Clinton (Democrat).

We therefore make a clarion call to genuine progressives in the Democratic

party to bring their energy and vision to us, by migrating from the Jim Crow

Democrats political plantation so as to create our own, stand-out, political travel

blockchain party. We have the right people and technology in place, primed and

ready to strike. Yet there is more still for us all to do to enhance the

movement. Ask yourself this – if the future is digital, how will it be used to

change the world for the benefit of the many not the few, the oppressed and

not the oppressors, the just not the unjust? It is beyond doubt that one day

greatness will be firmly in our grasp. But rather than waiting, can we reach for

that greatness now? Do we have the laser-focus of foresight that allows us to

seize that prize?
