Let's Talk About: "El Tren de la Muerte," The Death Train.
Shalam Israel, We are the original Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge, out of 1 West 125th St. Harlem, NYC, since 1969. The HOME OF THE TRUTH! In the Spirit of the Most High, in the name of Christ under Commanding General Yahanna, we have dedicated and hazarded our lives to bringing the 12 Tribes of the nation of Israel back to the Father in spirit and truth. The people of Negro, and Indian descent, scattered throughout North, South, Central America and the West Indian Islands are the Lost 12 Tribes of Israel. Wherever we are; in the ghettos, the barrios, the reservations or shanty towns; on the web, and in our everyday lives we strive to wake up our people.
Roughly 30 years ago, crack cocaine hit the inner cities of the USA like a severe tidal wave and the face of our communities began to change. This initiated a mass exodus of blacks and Latinos out of America's inner cities, into surrounding suburbs and scarcely populated rural areas. With most affluent, and well to do middle class families leaving the city for better housing, jobs, and schools; vacancies where black businesses once stood were reclaimed by Asian Carry-outs, Arab owned deli's, and African lace wig shops, and East Indian 7-11's. Thus the dream of integration in America first became a reality in the communities of the people who had marched on Washington, and begged for a few decades earlier during the civil rights movement.
The next phase in destroying our community's comes in the form of gentrification. With property values at dirt cheap lows, wealthy investors, and real estate developers begin to buy up every stitch of housing and land that's available. Working with state governments, city councils (political and religious leaders), and federal contractors; developers and investors begin the process of raising the cost of living and making it more difficult to afford housing inside of the city.
By knocking down housing projects and cutting city funding for low income housing programs, poor blacks and Latinos are forced to leave the cities to find affordable residencies. Once the poor residents of the city are gone, the investors and real estate developers build everything up, beautify the city, and make a killing selling houses, condos and leasing space to businesses in city neighborhoods that a few years prior were riddled with drugs and violence. Some cities like Washington DC, and New Orleans, have seen this process through to its completion, while others like Detroit, MI, Harlem, NY, and Chicago, IL are at varying stages.
I painted the picture of the destruction of the black and Latino community in American inner cities, to establish the relevance of the "immigration crisis" America claims to be having with Latinos from south of the US border. American media propaganda portrays those fleeing violence and poverty in Mexico and Honduras as some type of evil invading force.
Reminiscent to the underground railroad, by which, blacks in the southern States of pre-civil war USA traveled to escape slavery into the free northern States; making it to the U.S., for many Latino minors means hopping aboard a network of Mexican freight trains called "El Tren de la Muerte," or Death Train. It is called the train of death, because these aren't passenger trains; there are no panoramic windows, seats or even a roof to guard from sun or rain. In order to catch a ride people who travel via Death Train must jump onto a moving freight car. Once aboard, hundreds of men, women and children perch themselves on the roof, cram between the boxcars, or cling to the sides.
Jeremiah 50:33 - Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together[...]
As it has always been with the 12 tribes of Israel, so called blacks and Latinos are being oppressed together on this land we call America.
It is estimated that since 2010 when the media first began reporting on "El Tren de la Muerte," that over 250,000 migrants have risked their lives trying to find their way into America. For those wondering why here is a short list. Mexicans, Hondurans, Salvadorans and Guatemalans are trying to escape from hell where; a reign of terror and violence imposed by organized crime, relentless poverty, lack of opportunities and employment, and weak law enforcement and corruption at the official level. Family businesses close as owners can no longer pay off the criminals who threaten them, and even street vendors have to hand over some of their earnings. Teenagers face a future of gangs, prostitution, and drugs. Sound familiar?
The reality is that life south of the US/Mexico border is like being in New Orleans a day after Hurricane Katrina, Washington DC in 1988 (murder capitol of US), the city of Detroit with the water cut off, and Chicago on the 4th of July weekend (84 shot in 84 hours), all at the same time. To these brothers and sisters trying to make it out, America is the suburbs, and all the
Hondurans, Salvadorans, Mexicans and Guatemalans want to do is get the hell out of the city overrun with drugs and violence.
Isaiah 30:5 - They were all ashamed of a people that could not profit them, nor be an help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach.
The white man's unwillingness to help these immigrants fleeing a virtual war zone is a shame for those risking their lives on the death train. They are unaware that this place cannot profit them, because America would rather shame and slander them, than lend a helping hand.
Unfortunately for most of these refugees seeking asylum in the US, this place is not what Hollywood portrays it to be. The land flowing with milk and honey, where everyone is welcomed and anyone can get ahead, is a figment of the white man's imagination. At the border, these war refugees aren't met with open arms. The scene at the border today is much like the scene of a Mississippi school set to be "desegregated" in 1967. The fear America has of letting these migrants into the country, is the same fear white America had about integrating blacks into their society 50 years ago.
Of those making perilous trip on the death train, an alarming number of the travelers are young children. More than 52,000 unaccompanied minors have been apprehended at the border since the start of the 2014, more than twice last year's total of 24,000. The media has twisted these statistics as a sign of neglect on behalf of these children's parents, when the reality of their situation is exactly the opposite.
Earlier this year, the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees surveyed 404 children from Mexico and Central America who arrived in the United States illegally, and asked a simple question: Why did you leave? The report found "that no less than 58 percent of the 404 children interviewed were forcibly displaced" to a degree that warranted international protection, meaning that if the U.S. refused these children, it could be in breach of U.N. conventions. These people aren't coming here for economic opportunity. They are fleeing for their lives.
Deuteronomy 28:32 - Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand.
The children of Israelites from the tribe of Zebulun, and Issachar are being sent to America in an attempt to save their lives from assured destruction in their home countries. There simply is no power in the hands of these people to protect themselves, or their children, so their last resort is to put them on the death train with the hopes that they turn out alright. This phenomenon is no different than blacks sending their children North on the underground railroad; Cubans sending their children on makeshift rafts across the Caribbean Sea to Florida; or West Indians sending their children to the states to be raised by relatives.
Zephaniah 2:1 - Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;
What we so called blacks, Latinos, and natives in America today must realize is that those Hondurans, Salvadorans, Mexicans and Guatemalans dying in Central America, risking their lives on the death train, and being held at the US border are our brothers. Together, we are the nation that is not desired, who the Most High is calling to gather together.
Let's not forget that it was less than a half century ago, that we were the ones protested against for trying to make a better way for ourselves in this country. Do not allow America to pit you against you brothers, in the name of higher taxes, fewer available jobs, and lower welfare benefits. If we had a proper government, and established leadership in the black, and Latino community, we could go to the border and claim those unaccompanied children as our own, and see to it that their care and well being doesn't become a burden on the American gov't or its taxpayers. That is what the ISUPK was established for.
As for the countries of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala they are simply in the beginning stages of gentrification. The violence and instability caused by gangs and drugs is no different than what occurred in the black and Latino community in America's major cities. The same can be said for the islands of Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. While at one time they were full of violence, gangs, and drugs, the white man cleaned up the portions he wanted for himself, and turned them into tourist resorts. It'll only be a few short years before central America becomes the premiere vacation destination for Europeans living in the Western Hemisphere.
