I am not a big conspiracy person. I think, for instance, that man really did land on the moon, that Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK all by his lonesome, and that all the Jews who worked in the Twin Towers were not given a secret phone call not to report to work that day.
Having said that; I have been reading some shit lately that have been really unnerving me. And it has to do with our military and the people fighting the war for us in Iraq. One of the stories I picked up thanks to some other bloggers in the AfroSphere, had to do with how the government is lowering the standards to recruit people into the armed forces; and how more and more white supremacist gang members for instance are signing up. Then, as it turns out, recruiting for African Americans in the Army is dropping big time. Memo to all brothers in Iraq, watch your back! You ain't Pat Tillman, and you see where he ended up.
And speaking of Pat Tillman; I read about how he might have been really killed in Afghanistan, and how the Army might have covered it up. Frankly, that scares the shit out of me. I mean if Pat Tillman, a genuine American hero by all accounts, can be a victim of fratricide, all because he allegedly was against the war in Iraq; then who isn't in danger? I mean all bets are off in this bitch and that scares me.
And let's not forget about our friends at Blackwater-the name alone sends chills up my spine-You know Blackwater don't you? Dick Cheney's private little freaking Army down in Virginia. Which I swear if Congress gets out of line he is going to turn them loose on Washington. They call themselves a "professional, military,law enforcement security company", but that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. They have been known to do all kinds of shady shit in Iraq, and they are growing. Right now they are the most powerful mercenary army in the world, and if I was the leader of a country like say, Cuba; I would be very worried right about now. Why? Because the folks at Blackwater could overthrow your Third World ass quicker that you can say, cigar. Jeremy Scahill, in a brilliant You Tube piece (don't ask me to link it, just google Jeremy Scahill) calls Blackwater a shadow army, and he is right.
So what if these guys-Blackwater -decided, for instance, that a certain segment of the population (Yes woozie here it comes) were to get out of line? What if all of a sudden, they decided there were too many Michael Vicks, too many out of control inner city gangs, and Barry Bonds just can't be allowed to break that record? Couldn't they just declare Martial Law on all black folks? They could call all the Blackwater boys home from Iraq to control all the blacks here. Hey, have you seen the racial makeup of Blackwater? So don't go laughing just yet. The shit could happen I promise you.
This is why I get so worried when I see my peeps acting up, cause I know that there is always that other army ready and waiting to put our asses in check. I can hear Dick Cheney now to the Blackwater CEO: "Hey there buddy this is Dick. Yeah, it's time to put operation "Colored Control" in place. Yeah, we just can't let this go on any longer. We are losing our country to these people. Besides, we don't even need them for sports anymore. The Japanese are getting really good at Baseball, and the Eastern European players are getting better than they are at basketball." OK that may be a bit far fetched, especially for a guy who doesn't believe in conspiracies that much, but hey, you never know. As a matter of fact,I think they have already kidnapped poor Colin Powell. And has anyone seen Condi lately?
