Last year, Ruslan joined us on Community During Chaos to talk about his thoughts on everything going on in 2020. During our talk, he shared his personal revelation about a group of selfish people in power.
“The whole thing that this made me realize is there are people in positions in power, not on some Illuminati stuff, who want to maintain power, flex power, and anytime their power threatened, they’ll do whatever it takes to conserve their power,” Ruslan said.
Ruslan brought up a myriad of points that lead to his conclusion. First was how the country’s COVID mortality rate did not spike at all as the diagnoses rates did. Second, is how America’s racism is ultimately classism using racism as a cover.
“We’ve always had classism. America made it unique with slavery and racism. Out here, you can identify someone’s class based on their race. It’s like a one-up.”
His third point is how the government constantly acted to create legislature and restricting people on what they could do and where to go. While he believes in the pandemic protocols, certain instructions by the government such as to not leave your home Ruslan thinks is too controlling.
Fourth, while the George Floyd protests happened, some police officers and police unions did not want the changes to occur. Fifth, some Christians didn’t and still don’t want to acknowledge racism and/or discredited the movements as communist or Marxist.
“I came from real communism. Stalin isn’t going to be on some black lives matter or white privilege is a thing. That’s not communism fam,” Ruslan explained.
It’s gotten to a point where Ruslan said, some of these Christians describe him and other pro-black Christians with wordage and terms discrediting Martin Luther King Jr.
“This is the first time where I’m like, there are people who don’t want other people to be successful, and so racism and classism and COVID are like tools they use to play with our emotions and gaslight us into thinking we’re somehow crazy.”
