The Devils Within

by A.B. Wilson Jr.

The acts of terrorism on September 11 were horrific. My deepest sympathies go out to those who lost family members and friends. It truly was a very tragic day. I have see the American Flag every where now. There are signs saying United We Stand. Where all this love and unity before September 11, 2001? It was nonexistant. I still question if America will ever truly be United. I believe the our current President is the wrong person for the job at this time because I don't believe is sincere about really make the United States of America truly united. I feel Bush and his administration is more concerned about finding and killing the people responsible for the terrorist acts instead of trying to heal this country. It is a typical response by White American males. White American want to remain in total control of this country financial structure and the power structure of this country. White American males want to maintain a dominant presence all over the world.

What most White Americans are afraid to say is that the wealthy right wing conservative White males in the country have caused most of the problems in the world. It is the hypocrisy of the white males that creates the massive dislike from Moslems in the Middle East. These feelings have been clear since the Iranian hostage crisis, but this country never seems to see the Devils within America.

The terrorist acts of September 11, 2001 were horrific, but not less horrible than many of the acts of terrorism that were committed by some very ugly Americans. The acts committed by the Mafia, the KKK, NeoNazi groups, and para military groups were extremely horrific. There are many devils within this country. When members of these groups killed innocent people with drugs or bombing of churches or government facilities we did not hear our leaders talk about a war. We did not hear our so-called criminal justice system try to bring these hateful and terrorist groups to justice. These group still exist.

The FBI in the late 1960s and the early 1970s ended the Black Panther Party, but organized crime and white supremist hate group, and right para-military groups still exist is a major reason why the event of September 11, 2001 were caused the inept National Security of this country and the pathetic criminal justice system that spend more time racially profiling African Americans than going after the real criminal. The people behind the attack on America see the hyocracy of a Nation that is suppose to be a democracy and has freedom and justice, but still is marred by the stain of all those violent groups that marginalize people.

In a truly United America the terrorist acts of September 11, 2001 never would have happened. America has never been united. This is the United States that at one time was segregated by law and lynchings were legal in many states. There is racial profiling by many police departments. The terrorist in the Middle East are very wrong for what they did, but the United States is still very wrong for their actions is harboring the many devils within. When the leadership in this country gets rid of white supremist hate groups and neoNazis, and busts up organized crime and para-military and end the right-wing hatred then America can truly be united.

The real issue the obsession of white America is to stay in control over the darker people of the earth. White American males have always been obsessed with the intellect of the capacity of Black Americans to have control of their owns lives. White males have supressed and marginalized people of color and thus the failure of protect and external attack took place. A war will not solve the problem, total unity will. The elimination of hate groups, criminals, and para-military groups are the way to start.

I still have questions about this government's commitment to total unity. Those Devils within will cause problems. These American Devil are equally to blame for what happen on September 11, 2001 as Arabs that the administration wants to go to war with. The war needs to be directed in a different direction.
