The Islāmic-Posture towards Sex-Crimes & the Damage they cause

Standard

Sadly, we as Human-Beings now dwell in a Globalized-World of Hyper-Sexualization. Sexuality/Sex is literally everywhere, much like Oxygen-From Trendy-Hashtags (like: “#WordPorn”, “#FoodPorn”, etc.)…to “That’s what she said.” Jokes thus popularized by a Hit-Sitcom called “The Office”…to Reality-TV Shows like “Pawn Stars”: a Pun-Play/Spinoff of the Word “Porn Star”…to Music/Songs like “W.A.P. (W.et A.ss P.ussy)” by Cardi B & Megan The Stallion: I can literally mention Socio-Cultural References All-Day. The Point, however, is that this is clearly a Prophetic-Manifestation of Muhammad (Peace be upon him). He mentioned directly, that there will be Persons from his Ummah/Nation (Muslims & Non-Muslims alike) whom’ll perpetually attempt to justify any/all Manifestations of az-Zinā/THOTery & more specifically he detailed that Homosexuality is what he fears for his Ummah mostly.(al-Bukhārī; Abū-Dāwud; al-Kabā’ir/The Major-Sins, adh-Dhahabī) Unfortunately, there’s so/too many Muslims whom actually think/feel that this Reality is exclusively reserved for Non-Muslim/Muslim-Minority Nation-States.

Well, News-Flash/Reality-Check…I’ve some Gruesome-News for you:

a. KSA/Saudi Arabia is the Only-Place in the World, that I’ve ever traveled to, where I was personally approached by Male&Female-Prostitutes (Broad-Daylight…within al-Makkah…via Hajj-Pilgrimage-Season) back in 1426, A.H./2005, C.E.: I was 24 (Islāmic-Calendar)/23 (Gregorian-Calendar) when this occured.

b. In Egypt: Transformer-Surgeries (Artificial Medical-Transformation from Male2Female/Female2Male) is literally 💯% Secularly-Legal & Religio-Approved by al-Azhar University: one of the most Famous-Centers of Islāmic-Academia within the Muslim-World.

c. Bangladesh is literally the only Muslim-Country which has Prostitution as being Secularly-Legal.

d. Tunisia is the only Muslim-Country which has secularly-legalized Muslim-Women to “marry” Non-Muslim Men.

e. I personally know Muslim Porn-Stars.

f. Porn-Culture, Sexual-Abuse (via Child-Molestation, Rape, Sexual-Predatism, Sexual-Harrassment/Misconduct, etc.) are Things which’re extremely widespread amongst Muslims.

These Aformentioned-Examples are Potentially-Endless. Now, this is dreadfully important, as it’s Purpose is to drag our Heads out of the Sand & see our World: Societies, Environments, Communities, etc. as they truly are. And the Pathetic-Reality is that we’re really Fucked-Up.

Why even discuss this?!!!

I know, for a Fact, as I was even authoring this, that this could probably one of the most Controversial-Things which I’ve ever personally committed to Pen&Paper. However, as a Muslim-1st, Chaplain-2nd, I literally exist both professionally & personally to do/be the following: a. To be an Embassador-Of-Empathy. b. To make the Uncomfortable comfortable. This Article, via the Mercy-Of-Allah, will manifest exactly that: Empathy&Confrontation, as per the Hyper-Sexualized Atmosphere which our Global-Humanity has suffered immensely from. I honestly do expect to receive: Text-Messages, Phonecalls, Direct-Mesages, etc. pontificating/claiming that I’m being “2-Direct, 2-Explicit, taking the Subject 2-Far” & so on.It’s going to be very obvious, to those whom actually know me: I write to unearth Uneasiness. I’m committed to getting under Peoples’-Skin, because I’m doing so via Islāmic-Principle: “Truth is Truth, regardless of whom/where it comes from.”. Furthermore, this is validated, via the Statement of Muhammad (Peace be upon him), “Speak truthfully, regardless of whether it rubs People wrongly.”.(al-Bayhaqī)

Let’s now take a Break from this, and explore the actual Categories of Sex-Crimes, which al-Islām deems Mahrūm/Islāmically-Prohibited, via at-Tanzīl/Revelation.

The Following-Passage is predicated upon al-Kabā’ir/The Major-Sins, adh-Dhahabī:

Any/all Manifestations of az-Zinā/THOTery are, holistically, Islāmically-Punishable via Death-Penalty.

1. The Exceptions to this Islāmic-Precedent are the Following-Sins

a. Masturbation

b. Female-Female Homo-Sex

c. Any/all Manifestations of az-Zinā committed by Prepubescent-Humans (meaning those whom may commit any Acts-Of-Zinā prior to reaching al-Balāghah/Puberty)

d. Marital-Rape

e. Fornication/Pre-Marital Sex (Sexual-Intercourse while never being Previously-Married)

f. Porn-Addiction

2. The Manifestations of az-Zinā which’re Islāmically-Punishable via Death-Penalty, in Order of Most-Severe to Least-Severe

a. Bestiality (Human-Animal/Animal-Human Sex)

b. Necrophilia (Raping a Dead-Person, a Vegetative/Comatose-Person, etc.)

c. Child-Molestation (Sexual-Contact with any Prepubescent-Human)

d. Rape (Marital-Rape not included)

e. Sex-Trafficking/Pimping

f. Male-Male Homo-Sex (Male-Male Sexual-Contact or Males allowing Females to impose Homosexual-Acts upon them)

g. Adultery (it doesn’t matter whether one is Currently-Married or Divorced)

3. Clemency regarding Sexual-Crimes

The Hudūd (Islāmic-Punishments/Penalties) as per Sexual-Crimes can only be imposed upon Free-Persons whom’re Pubescent, Sane, etc. The Enslaved, the Insane, Children/Prepubescent-Persons, etc. get Hadd-Passes, by virtue of the Fact that it can easily be probable/plausible that they were forced to commit such Sexual-Crimes, unless proven otherwise. If one is Insane (Mentally-Disturbed/Ill), a Child/Prepubescent-Person, etc. then there’s no Hisāb/Accountability for them via this regard at all anyway. Also, for Obvious-Reasons: those whom’re Victims of Sex-Crimes (Child-Molestation, Rape, Sex-Trafficking/Pimping, etc.) are completely exempt from any Hadd.

Why all this Effort pertaining to this Subject?!!!

I had revised & republished a Previous-Article that I had wrote, concerning a Muslim Religio-Cleric whom had raped&beaten their own Child to Death (quite literally). Revisiting my own Article, previously published, had sparked a deeper Sense of Valid-Anger towards/against Sexual-Perversion. Revisiting that Article, in lieu of the Emergence of the #MeToo-Era, has compelled me to be that much/even more self-invested in these Issues than I’d ever been prior to that Time in my Life. I personally deem it a Farīdhah/Islāmic-Mandate, upon every Muslim, to be directly/fully engaged in creating Positive-Solutions for the Problems via our World which’re directly caused by az-Zinā. But, sadly, not enough Muslims are courageous, willing, enough to step/stand-up & confront these said Issues.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2013/02/04/rapeisacrimenomatterwhodoesit)

And, there’s a Host of Reasons how/why the Resistance against combating Sexual-Perversion exists amongst Muslims

a. We ourselves have /still personally self-indulge in Sexual-Perversion/Sex-Crimes.

b. We ourselves have been/still are being victimized via Sexual-Pervesion/Sex-Crimes.

c. We ourselves have been/still are being shamed for being victimized via Sexual-Perversion/Sex-Crimes.

d. We ourselves are afraid to bring Awareness to Sexual-Perversion/Sex-Crimes, because of: Opposition, Ridicule/Mockery, Threats/Violence, Alienation, etc.

e. We ourselves think/feel that we want to do something, but are ignorant and/or ill-equipped to do so.

f. We ourselves are overwhelmed, that our Efforts (to actually create Solutions to Problems caused/exascerbated by Sexual-Perversion/Sex-Crimes) are neither respected nor supported.

g. We ourselves don’t give a Shit, because it hasn’t/isn’t happening to us, or it has/is happening to us but we don’t care whether someone/anyone either has suffered or is suffering as we have…I tell People all the Time, “Apathy is worse than Ignorance.”.

Where can/does it go from here?!!!

That calls for Ongoing-Conversations amongst ourselves, our Loved-Ones, our Communities/Societies. It equally involves Actual-Work, which is bound to place us in the Crosshairs. And, sadly, most us us are so fearful of facing this. I tell People all the Time, “Courage isn’t the Absence of Fear, it’s the Willingness&Ability to confront Fear.”. That’s precisely what we’re all commanded by Allah to do: face our Fears. If you’ve enough Courage yo join me in this Effort, you know how to reach me and let’s seriously work together to combat this.

MuslimPro’s Islāmophobic-Agenda

Standard

(https://www.vice.com/en/article/jgqm5x/us-military-location-data-xmode-locate-x)

Ironically, one of the most popular Muslimcentric-Apps has been exposed, for deliberately & systematically leaking User-Info. to: Marketers, Brockers, and most sinisterly, Intelligence/Military-Entities. All of this thus detailed, via an article published via Vice. This Exposé clearly indicates just how low Islāmophobes really go.(https://www.latimes.com/business/technology/story/2020-11-23/muslim-pro-data-location-sales-military-contractors)

There’s absolutely 0-Way that this was incidental/accidental…this was Islāmophobically-Methodical. Also, just as equally ironic: the MuslimPro App-Creator is a Non-Muslim Frenchman. The History-Of-Islāmophobia is Mutawātir/Common-Knowledge.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2020/11/03/francethechinaofeurope)

So, via Hindsight, it actually makes Perfect-Sense as per how/why a Non-Muslim from France would be at the Helm of this Religio-App which has literally deceived & setup every single User of this app, including myself. I, personally, without any Hesitation-Once learning of this, I immediately uninstalled that MuslimPro-App. I command, encourage, implore, beg, etc. any/all MuslimPro-App Users to also do the same. It’s crystal-clear what this actually means. Apps such as this, leaking Personal-Information as it does, by design, is an Act-Of-Espionage, Digital-Clarations of War against al-Islām&Muslims. Things like this: the Intersectional-Relationship between Telecommunication & Governance is directly predicated upon the Provisions within the US-Patriot Act. What Allah has chosen to reveal is yet Another-Plot, attempting to extinguish the Light-Of-Allah: Guidance via al-Islām.

as-Suwād fī Amrīkā/Blackness in America

Standard

During the 2020 US-Presidential Election-Cycle, the most Controversial-Election in US-History to date: I was requested to be interviewed, concerning the Effects of this Presidential-Election on Muslims as well as Afro-Americans within the United States. In addition to that, I was interviewed also about the Human-Condition of the Afro-American both historically & contemporaneously.

Interview on the AlArabyTV-Website
Interview on the AlArabyTV YouTube-Channel

(As per the Conditions) there’s many Things which absolutely must always be at the Forefronts of a Discussion such as this to address…the Following-Topics: Colonization, Slavery, White-Supremacy, White-Privilege, the 13th-Amendment: the US-Prison Industrial-Complex, Black-Codes: the Prelude to Jim-Crow & Segregation, War-On-Drugs, Welfare, Crime&Poverty/Poverty&Crime, Hypersexuality, Self-Hate, etc. And these are just Universial-Issues which affect Afro-Americans holistically.

Then, there’s the Conditions of Muslim Afro-Americans which’re Toxic-Remnants of the Negative Historical-Issues facing Muslim Afro-Peoples holistically & globally, both historically & contemporaneously:

a. The Muslim-Caste System which Muslims have established as an Unwritten-Rule for the Past-Millennium

(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2020/03/16/muslimcastesystem)

b. The Bilāl-Mythos

(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2018/02/04/bilalmoviereinforcesslavenarrative)

c. al-`Asabiyyah (Xenophobia via White-Supremacy/Anti-Black ness) via Muslim Religio-Scholarship

(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2020/09/08/antiblacknessandtextualdistortion)

d. Religio-Rejection of “Black-Lives Matter”

(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2020/06/10/islamophobiaviaxenophobia)

e. Anti-Blackness amongst Muslim Afro-Peoples

(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2019/11/14/muslim-hatemonger)

The Trump-Administration forced People to recognize/acceot the Reality that the “Colorless-America” which was pontificated/claimed&promoted via the Obama-Years was a Complete-Fiction…al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia never vanished from the US-Landscape when Barack Obama was a POTUS, it simply became more covert. However, when Donald Trump became a POTUS it became very overt, and it resulted in the US revisting Tumultuous-Times not seen since the 1960’s, C.E. Moving forward though: it honestly doesn’t matter whom wins Presidential-Elections…I tell People all the Time, “The Dems & the GOP are 2-Wings of the Same-Bird: the Vulture…the United States is a Vulture.” & “Freedom via Democracy is an Illusion.”. Dem-Presidents & GOP-Presidents have come&gone, yet Afro-Americans are still largely an Oppressed-People…manipulated & sold Political Pipe-Dreams by both Political-Parties…urged, pressured in Many-Ways even, to submit their Support/Votes without any such Human-Guarantees in Return…etc. Plato’s “The Republic”, alone, affirms/confirms precisely what I’ve mentioned…keep in Mind that Plato was the Number-1 Student of the Inceptor/Inventor of Democracy: Socrates.

Exposing Muslims whom pontificate/promote Islāmophobia via al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia

Standard

20200610_103750

You don’t have to be European to be a White-Supremacist. Just like you don’t have to be Non-Muslim to be an Islāmophobe. Persons like Assim Al-Hakeem: “Religio-Scholar” Native of the Arab-World via KSA/Saudi Arabia thus undoubtedly prove this: he happens to be both a Xenophobe & an Islāmophobe. Ironically, Persons like him are actually no different than Persons like Said Rageah.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2019/11/14/muslim-hatemonger)

Much like how `Amr ibn-Hishām was nicknamed Abū-Hakm/Father-Of-Judgment/Wisdom, whom was renicknamed Abū-Jahl/Father-Of-Ignorance/Stupidity via Muhammad (Peace be upon him): it’s ironic that the Last-Name of the Person whom is in this Post is al-Hakīm/Wise-Person, when in fact it should be al-Jahīl/Apathetic-Asshole. Islāmophobia & White-Supremacy are both Manifestations of azh-Zhulm/Oppression. And whomever co-signs or is Silent concerning either is a Zhālim/Oppressor, by definition. Being Pro-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia is Islāmophobia, by definition, because the 1st-Being/Created-Thing to be Pro-`Asabiyyah was ash-Shaytān/Satan. And ash-Shaytān is the Ultimate-Islāmophobe.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr)

One may Dare ask how/why do I pontificate/claim such a Stance against Assim Al-Hakeem. I’ll answer that. Firstly though, I’ll thoroughly detail the “Black Lives Matter” Concept vs. the “All Lives Matter” Kalām/Rhetoric.

 

“Black-Lives Matter”, is as valid as “All-Lives Matter”, because #Allah (the Creator/Lord of the Universe) created All-Life/Lives. However, at the Same-Time: if “Black-Lives” don’t matter to those whom benefit from al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia via White-Supremacy/White-Privilege, then saying “All-Lives Matter” is Deflectory-Rhetoric. It summarily means that they know that “Black-Lives” don’t matter via White-Supremacy & don’t care that “Black-Lives” don’t matter.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2018/02/04/bilalmoviereinforcesslavenarrative)

This, of course, is because they’re able to hide under the Filthy-Cover of White-Supremacy, via either: being European, passing for “White” (Russians/Central-Asians, Euro-Latinos, Middle-Eastern Peoples, Mixed-Ethnicity Peoples/”Bi-Racial”, etc.). Also, there’s Good-Ole Coonery via Persons whom’re classified as “Black”, via the Socio-Caste System which the Western-World operates by, based exclusively upon al-`Asabiyyah (via Classism, Ethnocentrism, Colorism, etc.). They attempt to convince People that White-Supremacy isn’t Reality. They also contribute to Self-Hate & Self-Destruction of their own People.

Furthermore, you don’t have to be Afro-American to be a Coon-If you’re Non Afro-American & you co-sign Anti-Blackness, via your Silence and/or your Biases, then by definition you’re a Coon. Oh, by the way: Muslims whom don’t/refuse to stand against White-Supremacy, then by definition, not only are they Muslim-Coons, but most importantly/worse yet, they’re Islāmophobes Assim Al-Hakeem & those like him are most definitely Muslim-Coons. Silence and/or Participation as per al-`Asabiyyah is Islāmophobia by definition. Muslims are Mafrūdh/Islāmically-Mandated to stand against any/all Manifestations of azh-Zhulm/Oppression: Spiritually, Psycho-Emotionally, Primally.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2019/09/23/toxicleadership)

Of course, Persons like Assim Al-Hakeem have, on Numerous-Occasions, spoken against any Forms/Manifestations of al-Jihād (Struggle/Resistance) against Oppressive-Governance/Governments. And, this is because Persons like them are pressured, via their Oppressive-Governments, to command People to be Anti-Dissent. Ironically, Dissent was literally used via Muslims of the Middle-East/Arab-World via the Geo-Political Ancestors of this Region aiding Non-Muslim/Western Powers topple al-Khilāfah/Islāmic-Governance: the Ottoman-Empire during World-War I.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/hujjahagainstsaudiarabia)

Standing against azh-Zhulm is something Allah takes so seriously, that He decided to make azh-Zhulm Mahrūm/Islāmically-Prohibited even upon Himself. And, if/whenever there’s Muslims being Silent/Complicit regarding any Manifestation of Oppression, then this is Islāmophobia, by definition…you don’t have to be Non-Muslim to be an Islāmophobe. In fact, ironically: Muhammad (Peace be upon him stated taught us that al-`Asabiyyah is something which his Ummah/Nation will never abandon.(Muslim, an-Nawawī)

China’s Silk-Road of Blood

Standard

img_20191128_151546_337

This is exactly why the Chinese-Government is oppressing the Uyghur-People, whom’re mostly Muslims, in XinJiang/East Turmenistan. China wants to extend its Global-Reach enomically “By Hook or by Crook”. And, Northwestern-China is literally in the Middle of the Historical Silk-Road. Because of this being the most important Juncture-Point of the Silk-Road, China is willing to bring Destruction to anyone/anything within its Path of Financial-Dominance within the World. This is coupled with the Fact that China is competing to surpass the Western-World economically. All of the Atrocities mentioned about the Chinese “Reeducation-Camps”, the Forced-Relationships governmentally imposed between Non-Muslim/Han Chinese-Men & Muslim/Uyghur-Women are 💯%-True. However, there’s still Muslim-Governments whom still allign themselves with China. And, as Voltaire once stated, “When it come to Wealth everyone is of the Same-Religion.”. I tell People all the Time, “You don’t have to be a Non-Muslim to be an Islāmophobe.”. And, the Fact that Muslim-Governments support China, in spite of these Atrocities against Fellow-Muslims thus proves this undoubtedly.

Saudi Arabia’s Religio-Hypocritial Love-Hate Relationship with Music.

Standard

 

img_20190710_171953_322

It’s Patheitically-Ironic, that in a Nation-State whose Religious-Elite are so Hardline against Musical-Entertainment: Saudi Arabia not only has Music-Concerts within KSA, but also is Home to some of the Most-Popular Music-Artists in the History of the Muslim-World as well as the Arab-World, like Muhammad `Abduh for example (not to be confused with the Founder of Salafism in the 1860’s, C.E. of the Same-Name). However, within the Same-Breath: there’s Fatāwā/Religio-Rulings after Fatāwā as per the Islāmic-Prohibitions regarding Musical-Instruments, Musical-Lyrics, Musical-Genres, etc. & ironically the same Musical-Artists within the Realm of the Saudi-Kingdom pontificate/promote the exact Same-Kinds/Types of Music which is condemned via the Saudi Religio-Elite.

Some very important Facts to note, by the Way:

a. Music, via its Entirety, inherently isn’t Mahrūm/Islāmically-Prohibited.

b. The Term which are used via at-Tanzīl/Revelation (The Qur’ān & the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition) to describe the Prohibited-Elements of Music: al-Ma`āzif itself is too often mistranslated as “Music-Holistically/Musical-Instruments Holistically”.

c. The Correct-Meaning/Translation of al-Maāzif is “Instruments of Evil” & more specifically, via at-Tanzīl is “Woodwind/Stringed-Instruments”.(al-Bukhārī, Abū-Dāwud)

d. There’s a Known-Instrument know as ad-Daff: an Arab-Drum…ironically, ad-Daff is Mahlūl/Islāmically-Allowed & by definition it’s literally a Musical-Instrument. So, obviously, Islāmically: there’s absolutely no Way that all Music/Musical-Elements are Mahrūm.(al-Bukhārī, Muslim, Lisān-ul-Arab: Lexicon of the Arabic-Language, ibn-Manzhūr)

Saudi Arabia, just on the Issue of Music itself, is 💯%-Guilty of spreading Cultural-Colonization. Basically, their Premise is to indoctrinate the Entire Muslim-World to conform to their own valid Individual-Urfiyyah. And, of course: the Best-Way to pull this off is to disguise Arabism with the Cloak of al-Islām. In spite of the Fact that al-Islām is a Dīn/Religio-Spiritual Lifestyle & not an Urf/Culture, KSA readily attempts to lay Claim to al-Islām, as though it’s their Personal-Property, which clearly it’s not. And, because of the Fact that Salafism particularly, unique to any/all other Ahzāb (Sectarian/Deviant-Groups) amongst Muslims, the Religio-Puritanical Postures which is pontificated/promoted via Salafism pushes a very Ugly-Precedent/Agenda that if it comes out of/from Saudi, that if Saudi allows it, if Saudi co-signs/supports it, then it’s All-Good.

This includes:

a. Squandering the Wealth of the Muslims (Petroleum which is the Only-Reason as to how/why KSA & the other Gulf-States even matter to the World at all).

b. Collusion with Non-Muslim/Western Powers against Muslim-Countries/Governments, Muslim-Leaders, etc. (in spite of their Hypocritical-Kalām/Rhetoric concerning “Patience&Obedience in regards to Muslim-Leadership/Rulership).(Nawāqidh-ul-Islām/Nullifications of al-Islām, Muhammad ibn-`Abd-il-Wahhāb)

The Psychology Of Islāmophobia

Standard

img_20190709_123113_022

Ever since the Time of Noah (Peace be upon him), being commanded by Allah to confront the 1st Non-Muslims in Human-History: Humanity has always been corrupted via Islāmophobia.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr) However, as per the Modern-World: more than at any Time-Period within Human-History, we’re 💯% enthralled Knee-Deep in the Indulgence of Islāmophobia (Hatred towards/against anything/everything related to the Dīn/Lifestyle of al-Islām). And, because of this, Muslims have been globally pinned against the Wall. Pathological-Fears, which are either Self-Imposed or Socio-Politically Imposed, have tantamount Negative-Effects pertaining to what Muslims think/how we feel about ourselves & Others. Islāmophobia has established Intrapersonal&Interpersonal Inferiority-Complexes within the Minds&Hearts of Muslims worldwide.

Being Black In Britain: The Casualties Of The Windrush-Policy & Brexit

Standard

20190401_001010

My Travels via the United Kingdom, the 1st-Time I’ve traveled externally of the United States since 2006, C.E. & my 1st-Traveling within Europe, has given me a Significant Contrasting-Lens to view how Things like: Islāmophobia, Xenophobia, etc. really play-out throughout the UK. Being Visibly-Muslim & African-Descent in the UK is still, I’m sure, is viewed as an Exotically-Foreign Commodity…being African-Descent not so much. However, Opposition to both al-Islām & Blackness may very well be of Equal-Par. Even as I explored the UK for myself I’ve been met with a Tense-Sense of: Xenophobia, Otherism, etc. I saw it within People’s Faces, I felt it from their Vibes…this was just about anywhere/everywhere that I went-It was extremely subtle, covert, indirect, clandestine, etc. but, I knew it when it came my Way, as it approached me. British-People holistically (as per what I’ve observed) possess very Sly-Ways of throwing Shade, in the most Sophisticated-Ways, which kind of explains why there’s so much Sarcasm within British-Humor/Comedy.

The UK particularly, not only fully expresses Disdain towards the Other, but even amongst their own Ethno-Continental/European Counterparts, there’s this seemingly British-Style Posture of Superiority, Exclusivity, Anti-Inclusion/Acceptance, etc. One of the Things which proved this to me is the Fact that, to my Surprise, there were Lots of Interethnic/Interracial Couples: Afro-Euro Couples most commonly, within London particularly/especially. However, I constantly observed Euro-Brits stare, glance, scowl, at these Non-Euro Brit Couples and/or Non-Euro Couples period, as if they were plagued with Jungle-Fever. I mean, I literally saw this every Day I was in the UK. One of the most prominent Displays of Exclusivity I observed was when I went to Stonehenge. Stonehenge was/is actually much more significant than I ever really took it for, in Terms of its Purpose: I learned that the Druids who built Stonehenge used that Stone-Complex to commemorate the Celebration of People transitioning from Life to Death: kind of like a Afterlife-Gateway/Portal if you will. So, as one of the Tour-Guides was telling me Extensive-Details regarding Stonehenge, I had asked whether there were older Stone-Complexes than Stonhenge…her response, “Yes, there’s Stone-Structures all over the World.”. But, then instead of actually mentioning Stone-Structures across the Planet, they only mentioned the Stone-Structures within the UK. By itself, the Statement is apparently quite innocent. But, as per Context, it’s extremely telling as to how they view themselves as the Center of the Universe & this is also just as evident pertaining to how they’ve historically conquered & governed Others.

Even as per the Brexit-Fiasco unfolded, pertaining to the UK being politically turmoiled, whether to remain with or depart from the European Union: the Discourse concerning Anti-Blackness is very much apparent, in spite of the Macrocosmic-Narrative surrounding Immigration in the UK, which was the Genesis of the Friction between the UK & EU initially. Anti-Blackness, in lieu of Brexit, comes into play directly, resulting from Mass-Deportation of African-Peoples whom were allowed to immigrate to the UK via Post WWII, when most of the West-Indies, the Caribbean, as welk as Places within Africa, etc. were British-Colonies & even today are still (politically/economically) shackled to the UK via the British-Commonwealth. Many/most of these African-Peoples being forcibly deported are People who’ve made their Families, Careers, Lives within the UK: so much so that they basically have no Life external of the UK. As a Result, these Deportees are literally forced to start-over in Nations which they’ve probably haven’t been to in Decades.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2016/06/24/britains-break-from-the-eu)

Now, let’s explore how/why the UK possesses this Entitled-Posture to treat those whom were once welcomed to contribute to British-Society, yet are now being viewed as “the Other”. Well…let’s take a Look at the Landscape&Scope of Dominance from the Lens of the Victor/Colonizer: the UK, much like it’s other European-Colonial Counterparts, obviously, had and/or has 0-Problem with conquering, exploiting Non-European Peoples around the World, yet ironically are so bothered if/when the Descendants of these Conquered-Peoples make their Way to their Mainlands/Motherlands…ahhhhh, now all of a sudden these People are “2-Close 4 Comfort”?!!!

Whenever you’re the Dominator of any Human-Demographic, particularly/especially if/when you’ve oppressed them, then of course, it makes Sense as to how/why you’d deliberately, purposely/purposefully, methodically, set Social-Political Mechanisms in place to either keep them “in their Place” or to use/drain them of their Potential actualized within your Society & then expel them once donewith them. This is seemingly, most defintely, the Case as per the Climate&Tension surrounding Brexit which is merely yet another Excuse for the UK to put the Lean upon anyone/everyone deemed an “Outsider”, which is simply a Political-Euphemism for Non-Christian/Non-European.

African-Peoples, regadless to where they hail from under the Shadow of the British-Empire (and/or what’s left of it), are simply deemed threatening: not in Terms of Military-Opposition, but more/most importantly, in Terms of them being Historically-Perpetual Reminders of the Fact that the UK as a Global-Power, as well as an Economic-Force, had profitted mightily from Colonization, the Trans-Atlantic Slave-Trade, etc. The Descendants of those whom were oppressed are in many Respects being just as victimized via the Same-Oppressors. So, of course, the greatest Global-Immigration Crisis in Human-History to date-Since the Children of Europe’s Former Colonial-Regions are suffering as per the Proliferation of: Economic-Destitution, Political-Chaos, Religio-Cultural Impossition on Part of European-Powers are now wanting to seek Assylum within Europe’s Borders, then obviously Europe must now “save itself” from being overrun by the Peoples whom have historically/generationally had their Backs broken via the Service of their Colonial-Masters.

And, also, since many of these African-Peoples whom reside within the UK as (Downtrodden, Uneducated, Unskilled) Persons yearing to escape the Poverty & Dead-Ends of their Homelands which were exploited by the UK & whose Hardtimes are mainly the Direct-Result of Colonial-Oppresdion: when they’re too Uneducated to acquire Careers which offer Higher-Standards of Living, when thay’re not Affluent enough to afford Solid-Education leading to Promising Economic-Opportunities, when they can’t afford Private-Properties & must settle for dwelling within the British-Slums which’re Breading-Grounds of/for Criminality, then of course you’re goung to have significant Percentages of these Demographics whom’re: Roadmen/Trapstars, Journeymen/Hustlers, Knifemen/Shooters, Gangsters, etc. & of course Places where these Demographics are mostly concentrated like: London, Glascow, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, York, etc. are going to be Criminalized Hornets-Nests. And, of course, as per the Pseudo-Narrative that the Vast-Majority of British-Crimes are committed by African-Peoples will be readily accepted via the Anglo-Saxon, Welsh, Scottish, Celtic Masses of the UK, allowing themselves to deflect from the Reality that Criminality is never exclusively a Black-Man’s Vice, but rather a Human-Vice.

Instead of actually addressing the Socio-Economic Disenfranchisenent of the UK and/or its Socio-Political Marginalization, Parliament via the Xenophobic Right-Wing Factions of Governence&Government would much rather just point Fingers & shift Blame in a Dishonest-Way. We can/should all agree that there’s 0-Justification to pontificate/proluferate Criminality. At the exact Same-Time though, manipulatiing alarming Crime-Rates also isn’t any Justification to criminalize Human-Demographics & deliberately work towards forcibly expeling/exiling them from the Hone&Life which they’ve made for themselves…what’s being established via this Brexit-Phenomenon is simply an Excuse for the UK, as well as any/all other European-Nations like it to suck People dry of their Personal/Human-Resources for the Good of their Nations, only to repay them with Deportation/Exile, to the exact Same-Places which they once were where these European-Nations have decimated & exploited damn near to Death.
