Refuge not Refuse

This democratic government of the United States of America is blatantly showing us that it is okay to seek asylum in the United States as long as you are not Black. This is an egregious act of racism and hate that our government is actively engaging toward the Haitian immigrants in Texas and we cannot sit silent while these families, people, human beings, are treated as if they are unworthy trash. These people escaped a destroyed island in the middle of the ocean where an American citizen is accused of murdering their President. Where the United States has yet to provide aid in support of rebuilding the destruction left behind from natural disasters and the loss of leadership. Haitians are human too and they are not even asking or attempting to flee further into the United States, no, they are simply asking to be taken to a detention center and given a court date to plead their cases for asylum. The response from our democratic government is to put these vulnerable people on an airplane and promptly return them to the dangers they worked so hard and risked their lives to escape. This democracy was founded by immigrants, people escaping persecution in search of a better life. And while we failed miserably in the earliest of years trying to establish this American government, and this failure continues into today, we have the opportunity and ability to always do better. As I sit in my seat as Kristen M. Curry, CEO of UnseenXS, a direct descendant of a Mayflower passenger and a direct descendant of the 14th president of these United States, I stand strong in my assertion that this country, this government, this administration, and the people who call themselves American citizens have, can, and NEED to do better. We have to protect the vulnerable and offer refuge to those seeking it. In the words of Emma Lazarus that are inscribed on our great Lady Liberty:

"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" (November 2, 1883)

The Financial sector represents the epitome of oppression:

Where do we stand as coronavirus tops the headline news with attacks on the minority community? Where is our direction as national guards are called into United States cities anticipating a verdict of injustice? Economic inclusion is not just police reform, but financial reform is needed as billionaires invest in lowering their taxes. Where are the stakeholders for the underprivileged in this country? Government seeks dominance around the world to push critical race theory utilizing federal grants and gun control.

Can we count on our government, whose pipeline is to legalize marijuana, have the capitalist mandates, or advocate the people's interest? Beyond corporate spending, tax rates, and unemployment, when will we advocate for personal savings, bonds, EFT, and dividends for the overarching population. Is the fear of the individual to ascertain financial objective a graver effect than legalizing marijuana? We need to get back to putting financial capital in the hands of the human because voting is not solely at the ballot box. However, it begins at the cash register.

It then moves into affordable housing where individuals can create jobs, stimulating a community where the industry has betrayed the culture that is becoming extremely divided. Financial stability for the individuals will not just slow crime but will develop a healthy future that implements opportunity. Because we are only as free as our finances, American's s do not mind rule of law; they seek more freedom, not just a low-interest rate but removed oppression in the financial sphere.

The Financial sector represents the epitome of oppression where minorities are subjected to more so than police brutality. The unhidden racism that aligns within the financial sector is the Achilles heel of racism within the United States. Financial racism infrastructure needs to be broken up. Until the financial racist infrastructure collapse, then we can dispose of its counterparts. However, as long as the racist financial structure still in place, then the conventions of the minds of Babylon to advocate subsidiaries; will continue to miss the mark ending the pinnacle aspect of tearing down the real racism structure.
