According to Webster: “con·ster·na·tion,” (in context) A state of paralyzing fear.
Why are millions of white folks scared to death of one skinny black man?
A far more important question; “Why are millions of white people afraid of black people in general?
And then there’s the question; “Why are white women afraid of black men?”
All good question, and all questions that I have endeavored to answer.
Concerning our elitist omnipotent (nontransparent), and/or, clandestine commander-in-chief Barack Obama, ..it is (my considered opinion), that folks are afraid of him for the same reason that they’re afraid of anything that goes bump in the night.
Homo sapiens are by nature and by God’s granted free will, an immensely curious lot. We are fascinated by anything and everything that we don’t understand.
According to Webster: “fas·ci·na·tion,” (in context) Intensely interested or attracted.
Albeit sadly, all Homo sapiens aren’t bold enough to venture into the unknown themselves, consequently more often than not when one of us wants to satisfy a curiosity, we employ a surrogate.
According to Webster: “sur·ro·gate,” One that takes the place of another; a substitute.
Thus was born the fable, the urban legend, and/or, campfire stories…
Which of course at this juncture I don’t have time to explore because my purpose today is, to explore the “reality” of what one group of Homo sapiens in America, (black folks), ..have been led to believe about another group of Homo sapiens in America, (white folks), ..and vice versa.
Accordingly, since it is common knowledge that anything and everything anybody could ever want to know is somewhere in cyberspace, I asked Google; “Why are white people afraid of black people?”
..and of course I was pretty much instantly provided with an infinite number of sources…
After seven pages of politically correct rhetoric and bull shit, I conceded that politically correct rhetoric and bull shit wasn’t what I was looking for.
Consequently, I find myself back at square one, ..where the one person I trust to provide me with “actuality” and the truth resides.
(myself – via my common sense).
The study of anthropology provides us with the hypothesis, and/or, the supposition that hominidaes, and/or, humanoids first appeared on our planet…
The Hominidae, also known as great apes form a taxonomic family of primates, including four extant genera:
chimpanzees (Pan) – 2 species
gorillas (Gorilla) – 2 species
humans (Homo) – 1 species
orangutans (Pongo) – 2 species.
The term “hominid” is also used in the more restricted sense as hominins or “humans and relatives of humans closer than chimpanzees”.
In this usage, all hominid species other than Homo sapiens are extinct.
According to Webster: “ex·tinct,” No longer existing or living.
A number of known extinct genera are grouped with humans in the Homininae subfamily, others with orangutans in the Ponginae subfamily.
The most recent common ancestor of the Hominidae lived roughly 14 million years ago, when the ancestors of the orangutans speciated from the ancestors of the other three genera.
The ancestors of the Hominidae family had subsequently speciated from those of the Hylobatidae family, perhaps 15 million to 20 million years ago.
Robots, and/or Humanoids from the Movie I-Robot).
A humanoid, from English human and -oid “resembling”) is something that has an appearance resembling a human being.
The term first appeared in 1912 to refer to fossils which were morphologically similar to, but not identical with, those of the human skeleton.
Although this usage was common in the sciences for much of the 20th century, it is now considered rare.
(More from the Movie I-Robot – definite racism going on).
More generally, the term can refer to anything with uniquely human characteristics and/or adaptations, such as possessing opposable appendage (thumbs) or the ability to walk in an upright position.
As a story is never truly understood unless it’s started from the beginning, I provide you with; …
Abiogenesis or Biopoiesis…
Which is the natural process by which life arose from non-living matter such as simple organic compounds.
The Earth was formed about 4.54 billion years ago. The earliest life on Earth existed at least 3.5 billion years ago, during the “Eoarchean Era” when sufficient crust had solidified following the molten “Hadean Eon.”
The earliest physical evidence for life on Earth is biogenic graphite in 3.7 billion-year-old (metasedimentary rocks) discovered in Western Greenland and (microbial mat fossils) found in 3.48 billion-year-old sandstone discovered in Western Australia.
Nevertheless, several studies suggest that life on Earth may have started even earlier, as early as 4.25 billion years ago according to one study, and even earlier yet, 4.4 billion years ago, according to another study.
Scientific hypotheses about the origins of life can be divided into three main stages: the geophysical, the chemical and the biological.
Many approaches investigate how self-replicating molecules or their components came into existence. On the assumption that life originated spontaneously on Earth, the “Miller–Urey experiment” and similar experiments demonstrated that most amino acids, often called “the building blocks of life”, can be racemically synthesized in conditions which were intended to be similar to those of the early Earth. Several mechanisms have been investigated, including lightning and radiation.
Other approaches (“metabolism first” hypotheses) focus on understanding how catalysis in chemical systems in the early Earth might have provided the precursor molecules necessary for self-replication. (Source, Wikipedia).
Moving ahead approximately 4000 million years we come upon; …
Ardipithecus is a fossil hominine. It is still a matter of debate what was the relation of this genus to human ancestors, and whether it is a hominin, or not. Two species are described in the literature: A. ramidus, which lived about 4.4 million years ago during the early Pliocene, and A. kadabba, dated to approximately 5.6 million years ago (late Miocene).
(No racism here).
Homo is the genus of hominids that includes modern humans and species closely related to them.
The genus is estimated to be about 2.3 to 2.4 million years old, possibly having evolved from australopithecine ancestors, with the appearance of Homo habilis.
Several species, including Australopithecus garhi, Australopithecus sediba, Australopithecus africanus, and Australopithecus afarensis, have been proposed as the direct ancestor of the Homo lineage.
These species have morphological features that align them with Homo, but there is no consensus on which gave rise to Homo, assuming it was not an as-yet undiscovered species.
Homo erectus (meaning “upright man,” from the Latin ērigere, “to put up, set upright”) is an extinct species of hominin that lived throughout most of the Pleistocene, with the earliest first fossil evidence dating to around 1.9 million years ago and the most recent to around 143,000 years ago.
The species originated in Africa and spread as far as Georgia, India, Sri Lanka, China and Java. (Source, Wikipedia).
..and that’s it for today.
