I was among those who believed in the so-called "American Exceptionalism" but I now realize that I never wondered "Exceptional in what?". I have heard and saw the countless cries and sorrows of many black people in America, unfortunately, my reality of America was only that of a Soldier who took pride in believing in the core values that guided the Society that I had the honor to be part of for fourteen years of my twenty years in America: The Military. Our society can learn and benefit a great deal from the Military even though it is sometimes misused by those in power.
Going back in the civilian life as so-called black us citizen since my retirement gave me the opportunity to experience what people who look like me experienced under our "American Exceptionalism". It could be summarized in one well-known word: Injustice. It would not be a problem if the consequences of what is being done was against me affected me. While those with power, privileges, and money come after me for money, the obvious victims are by beloved children.
When it became clear that the made-up abuses stories about me didn't work, everyone rushed to take my children hostage claiming that I was an abusive father to my own children. For me this was lower than dirt and so ignoble that I chose not to engage. To date, I keep asking for one single piece of objective evidence of poor parenting and no one has been able to present it. They even refused to admit or consider unsolicited written notes from firsthand witness account of my exceptional parenting skill. Yet, everyone is now claiming to be protecting my children while using their position of authority to extort everything that I earned from my retirement to the point that I had no other choice but to relinquish the custody of my beloved daughters, and I now have to live my apartment so that they can have the money that they are after.
As I was packing everything today, I came across the following notes. These clearly depict a different picture from that of violent father that few are desperately trying to portray about me. I get heartbroken when I read these messages knowing that my children did nothing to anyone, yet they are the victims of a few despicable worthless creatures. These notes were sent to me when I was homeless as a result of these unsubstantiated accusations. Read it for yourself and contrast that desperate attempt to paint me as violent person. These notes from my daughters are forever engraved and etched in my heart.
"I love you , you are the best Dad Maddie could ever have. You fill my heart with Joy. Love, Maddie". My perpetrators have constantly requesting for me to be sent to jail just because they don't receive their money on time. Whether I die or go to jail today, I know that my children love me, and they know that I will forever love them even beyond the grave. My love for my children will not serve as the pedestal upon which some despicable worthless creatures have to use my children as sacrificial lambs.
The truth, facts, and evidences will speak for me. My work will vindicate me. The truth always comes to light and time is always on the side of the Truth. Those who are bitter and greedy will be consumed from inside by their own vices. I will not dim my light to please those trolling in the darkness. I will keep holding my name and that of my daughters to the highest and noblest standards. The imposters of my name on the other hand will be consumed by the living energy carried by the notion and meaning of my name.
Everything that's going on in our country today is truly a reflection of our exceptionalism. Unfortunately, we as a nation are exceptional in injustice. History teaches us that "We The People..." was not written by the black nor were they invited to write the declaration. Back then black were still slaves and it was legal. I can care less about any injustice on myself because being born in Africa gave me a VIP access to all sorts of injustices from the dominance of foreign powers. My heart bleed for my children who must grow without the presence of their loving father. That is a tiny piece of My Black Reality of the American Exceptionalism. There are praising notes regarding my parenting sent to me by the same creatures that are accusing me today. As promised, everything will be revealed very soon!
