Some of My Best Friends Are Black: The Strange Story of Integration in America

Almost fifty years after Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, equality is the law of the land, but actual integration is still hard to find. Mammoth battles over forced busing, unfair housing practices, and affirmative action have hardly helped. The bleak fact is that black people and white people in the United States don’t spend much time together—at work, school, church, or anywhere. Tanner Colby, himself a child of a white-flight Southern suburb, set out to discover why.

Some of My Best Friends Are Black chronicles America’s troubling relationship with race through four interrelated stories: the transformation of a once-racist Birmingham school system; a Kansas City neighborhood’s fight against housing discrimination; the curious racial divide of the Madison Avenue ad world; and a Louisiana Catholic parish’s forty-year effort to build an integrated church. Writing with a reporter’s nose and a stylist’s flair, Colby uncovers the deep emotional fault lines set trembling by race and takes an unflinching look at an America still struggling to reach the mountaintop.

It appears the United Nations anticipates economic collapse and armed revolt in the United States and they are looking for a few good Peacekeepers with “experience with small arms control, conflict/post-conflict crisis management, and economic recovery”. The U.N. is hiring a “Disarmament, Demobilization, and Re-integration (DDR) officer” for the apparent purpose of disarming American citizens as the “duty station” is New York City, USA. The U.N. defines “disarmament” as “the collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons from combatants and often from the civilian population.” The U.N.’s help wanted ad reads:

These positions are located in field missions of Peace Operations. The DDR Officer typically reports to the head of a work unit or to a senior official responsible for DDR operations in a field location, though this may vary depending on the mission structure. The focus of these jobs is to lead the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of DDR programmes, operations and other related activities in the country or region concerned.

Integrated Approach Needed to Combat Herbicide Resistance

Over-reliance on glyphosate-type herbicides for weed control on U.S. farms has created a dramatic increase in the number of genetically-resistant weeds, according to a team of agricultural researchers, who say the solution lies in an integrated weed management program. “I’m deeply concerned when I see figures that herbicide use could double in the next decade,” says David Mortensen, professor of weed ecology at Penn State.

Isn’t it amazing how things change so fast; only as far back as fifty years ago, segregation and apartheid were the primary racial policies in most western nations across the world, examples being Australia, South Africa and the United States, and through these laws, peace was the primary product. Separate, but equal. However, with the rise of the left wing activists during the 1950’s and 1960’s, this balance of peace between the races was thrown to the gutter in the name of “equality”, and since those dreadful years, rape, murder, race mixing and violence, rose through the roof (just take a look at what happened to South Africa).

Today, it is clear that the damage is done and that this world won’t be able to stand on nationally based “integration” and so-called “equality”, and as such, far more radical steps need to be taken to ensure the peace that the west once had returns; “continental based segregation”. Each continent belongs to a single race, each independent of the violence, rape and race mixing that always occurs when nations are integrated and the races “equal”.

The Western World to the whites.

Asia to the Asians.

Africa to the Africans.

experience the spiritual dimension of consciousness, fully and powerfully and the ego-consciousness aspect will be realigned with this experience.

this means a weaving of the spiritual experience with the incarnation, embodied dimension. in so after, that being can relate to others from a place where the ego has become humble and wise, and no longer unconsciously seeks out the systems of endless desire, birth and death.
