Racism and the IRS

The reason I want to introduce the IRS into the equation is because I see inconsistencies in our daily lives.  In one stream of conversation, we are talking about people, voting, identification, racism, discrimination, etc.  A new stream is about the IRS and what it is doing to get information on taxpayers.  Very probative stuff.  How do I know?  My client is a tax specialist and I am reading about taxes, tax law, tax enforcement, tax deliverables, tax questionnaires that are all IRS generated.  Why is this relevant?  Because right now, 100,000 households in CA have been sent a head of household questionnaire where they will have to prove their head of household status.  It is going to small business owners that have in-home businesses… it is probative and it is mandatory.  These taxpayers will have to prove who they are – and their status.  Now, let’s go back to voting.  Producing ID is an issue for some about being eligible to vote.  Jurisdictions, geography, convenience.  Then why don’t we all feel the same about adhering to the IRS stuff.  It’s a command… YOU MUST RETURN THIS BY.  It’s not a suggestion – it is a requirement.  Some homes may get audited.  Because the IRS doesn’t trust us… and btw, you do know that the IRS adheres to roman law and not civil law.  You are guilty until proven innocent.

If we are ever going to get anywhere in this great nation of ours – we have to have basic ground rules for what it is we are talking about.  If the white race is going to take on the responsibility – of all the ages – of all the discrimination – like girls not being able to own land, or transfer of ownership of property or money (as in the English and Irish history)… discrimination has gone on through the ages across colors and ancestry.  I’m watching it in Africa right now – along with genocide that no one seems to be noticing… but if we in the United States who are white and want this discussion to stop and go away … we need to make a commitment to make it happen.  At the same time, I want and expect the Black community to give me achievable objectives that I can actually make happen.  Not a blanket statement that I can’t do anything with.  If I am going to assume ownership of racism – I expect to be able to assume ownership to making changes.  In order to do that, I need to know what changes need to be made.  I am not articulate on the subject.  There are going to be multiple sides — the key is coming to a agreeable solution and answer.  If we can’t do that, we’re screwed.
