I Spit On YOUR Celebrations!

 

Independence Hell!

 

Why should I love a country that has never accepted me?
I’ll never wave your goddamn flag and pretend that I am free.

I spit on your celebrations and I will never play your games.
Don’t think I’ll kiss your ass while my people are in chains.

You hypocrites make me sick with your pretensions and your lies.
Then you drape yourselves in sheets and have the nerve to moralize.

You celebrate your freedom while destroying the homes of others.
Independence is only for you as the rest of the world discovers.

Your bombs that burst in air are now destroying all mankind.
As the empire marches on, the world gets redefined.

What bravery you display by the dropping of your drones.
And you littered foreign lands with innocent peoples bones.

Celebrate the fourth and forget the shit you’ve done.
When your bombs are busy bursting, we know you’re having fun.

Fuck this 4th of July bullshit!!

What the hell is there to celebrate? Kops murdering innocent women in their sleep? I guess we’ve ALL forgotten Breonna Taylor. Is she here to ‘celebrate’ the 4th? What about Sandra Bland? What about Aiyana Stanley-Jones? Renisha McBride? Tanisha Anderson? Yvette Smith? Miriam Carey? Shelly Frey? Darnisha Harris? Malissa Williams? Alesia Thomas? Shantel Davis? Rekia Boyd?  Shereese Francis? Tarika Wilson? Kendra James?

And what about Kathryn Johnston who was 92 when she was killed in a botched “no knock” drug raid by Atlanta police that was revealed to be based on false information. Officers broke down her security gate and without warning entered her home. They MURDERED A 92 YEAR OLD BLACK WOMAN!!! 92 years old!!! Most of us don’t even see 65 and yet Kathryn Johnston made it to 92, only to be murdered by the same type of shit that is still in evidence today because that same type of shit, MURDERED BREONNA TAYLOR just this year!!! What the fuck is there to celebrate???!!!

Alberta Spruill also died after police conducted a “no knock” raid at her home in error. Officers broke through her door and threw a concussion grenade while Spruill, a city employee, was getting ready for work. She died of a heart attack two hours later. The kops breaking down Alberta Spruill’s door caused that Black woman to have a heart attack and for what? Another “no knock” raid that wasn’t even about her. The kops got the shit wrong AGAIN! But in reality, they more than likely did NOT get the shit wrong, they are hell bent on killing us, that is goddamn obvious!! But’ I’m supposed to be in the mood to celebrate some 4th of July goddamn nonsense bullshit???!!! Not fucking ever!!!

From 7 to 92 years of age, Black girls and women have been dying at the hands of racist kops and you sick, white fucks think that I’m going to celebrate YOUR bullshit?!! Are you stupid, depraved lunatics for real??!!! I don’t give a damn about your lame ass attempts to act like you’ve been protesting our deaths at the hands of your fucked up KKK kin! Fuck YOU! And fuck your pretending ass bullshit! I’m not buying your fake ass attempts to get us to believe that you’ve changed from the racist filth you’ve ALWAYS been. You’ll never change because your ass defines RACISM.

All the fuck I see on my reader is some celebrate America’s independence bullshit! Fuck that! You fucking whites are running to the beaches, the bars, the barbershops and some more shit dragging COVID-19 all over the goddamn place and so we are supposed to join with you in celebrating the fact that you feel that no one can tell you what the fuck to do while you spread COVID-19 to us all? Seriously???!!! Fuck YOU and YOUR 4th of July fucking bullshit whites! Drop fucking dead already…ON THE 4TH OF JULY!!!!

“Dear Former Black Students, I Fucked Up As Your Teacher!”

 

Black people, apparently, are under the assumption, that if we talk white, have a white sounding name or if we don’t have a white sounding name, then use initials, that once we get hired, we’ll be fine. Well, that’s not the case and this here former Black teacher named, “Lauren,” wants her former Black students to know that she fucked up as your teacher because she was trying to teach you to conform to the racist system the whites have established as a way to walk among white supremacists without them taking any notice of you since you fit in so well.

I Was A Black Teacher In A Majority White School. Here’s How I Failed My Black Students.

From the ages of 22 to 24, I was a teacher. I taught professional communication at a high school in an affluent, mainly white suburb of Houston. The school had over 3,500 students, and about 6% of them were Black, and of the over 200 teachers, only about five of us were Black (excluding coaches and security guards).

Many Black folks, myself included, were taught to adopt professional whiteness if we wanted to succeed in the professional world. This meant we had to speak, look, dress and act in a way that aligned ourselves more toward whiteness. The fact that this is understood yet seldom discussed is internalized white supremacy. And not only did I abide by it, but I taught it to my Black communication students. I thought I was giving them the tools to success when, in reality, all I was offering were steps on how to conform to a racist system.

It is sad that I have to say this, but it seems that there were too many Black students taught by teachers like this one because never in all my born days, have I heard so many ‘white’ sounding Black folks. Their mannerisms and airs would be comedic, if it wasn’t so tragic.

Some of us just don’t get it. It does not make a rat’s ass worth of difference if you change your name to Chad, walk around in loafers, khakis, your button down shirt is tucked inside your khaki pants, and you’re somewhere talking about, “How awesome! I would also like a double espresso latte, to go please.” Fuck that! You’re NOT white! You can try and adopt as many mannerisms of the whites as you can and your Black ass will still get the same treatment that Tyrone and Tameka get. And quite frankly, I have more respect for Tyrone and Tameka because they at least understand and keep it real because they know that their lives are not going to improve if they simply try and conform to what they think the whites want from them. The whites want us broke and dead; that includes ALL of us, even you pretentious bougie Black motherfuckers like this piece of shit “Lauren,” who after having fucked up her former Black students, now want to issue a lame ass apology that is too little, too late. She just now got an awakening and wants to set the record straight.

I was teaching you how to get by, but we should have been brainstorming ways to get free. Black folks will think we’ve found a way around the system while continuing to play by the system’s rules. It’s what we’ve done for generations, and that’s exactly what the system needs us to do for it to continue undisrupted. That’s what I was doing to you, and I’m sorry.

Heifer don’t get the shit twisted, YOU’VE been trying to find “a way around the system while continuing to play by the system’s rules.” YOU’VE “done that shit,” but there are millions of us who refused to stoop that goddamn low. We knew the score. We knew better. When your ass was standing somewhere telling young impressionable Black students to “act as white as possible,” there were those of us who were staying true to who we are and were refusing to try and assimilate. What the hell for? We knew that shit would be a wasted effort and there ain’t shit about whites that I would try and emulate because then I would have to be something that’s found underneath hell. And that’s not something I’d ‘aspire’ to. The whites think that shit is cute because they crawled from underneath hell anyway and they need to be sent back and carry with them, shits like this here “Lauren,” who fucked her Black student’s minds up and now, years later, wants to “offer up an apology,” by way of the Huffington Post. Bitch, shut the fuck up because you are still at it. You must be in a place in your life that you are so comfortable that this lame ass shit won’t bother your current position. Let me guess, you’re married to some rich white dude and as long as you play his Black slave bed wench to the fucking ‘T’, your ass is in the lap of luxury. I bet I’m not far off.

This bitch done fucked up some impressionable minds and now that their brains are damn near useless because they thought that by pretending to be something they’re not, the system of white supremacy should be accepting them, but isn’t. And they’re sitting somewhere wondering if they need to put on a different color shirt to go with their khakis or if their loafers aren’t ‘white’ enough for whites or if their speech is not ‘posh’ enough for whites. They’re wondering just what the fuck is it? Why haven’t they been accepted into the whites’ fold? They are just not understanding that that shit is just not possible. They were born the wrong color, according to the whites. And this bitch just reinforced their need to keep at it when she was spouting bullshit about what they needed to do to conform and be accepted by the whites.

My time in any school that I have ever attended did NOT prepare me for a goddamn thing! Not one school. What I learned, I learned on my own, by trial and error and I’m still at it today. I don’t care how many degrees Black people manage to earn, we are still only going to make it but so far and even those who become millionaires or even billionaires find themselves sitting behind bars(Bill Cosby, anyone?) whenever the whites decide that they’ve gotten too big for their britches. And meanwhile, they’ve got to do whatever the white man says in order to remain on the level that they been allowed to get to by the whites.

Take LeBron James, for instance, his damn sell-out ass is somewhere talking about how Colin Kapernick deserves an apology from the NFL since no one else had the balls to lose their damn job for taking a stand for what they believed in. A halfbreed had to come along and show those scared shitless coons that play pro sports how it’s done. And now, because it has been deemed a la mode to screech that “Black Lives Matter,” now those Black, scared, punk ass bitches are finding their voice, but was quiet as cat piss when Kapernick was getting black balled by the NFL. Shut the fuck up LeBron James. Don’t nobody need to hear from another scared ass sell-out! That’s what’s wrong with shit now, there are too many goddamn sell-outs and not enough Malcolm Xs to make a damn bit of difference and the whites know that shit! Those Blacks that got them some green ain’t thinking about those of us who are slinging burgers and dealing with COVID-19 while having no medical insurance. They don’t give a shit how many of us end up dying on the streets at the hands of racist kops just so long as the white man don’t turn in their direction and fuck their shit up!

And for the bitch that is now apologizing to her former students, karma is coming for your ass. Count on it because your lame ass, too goddamn late apology, ain’t fucking cut it!

Three Cops Fired After Threatening To ‘Slaughter’ Black People!

 

 

Well, it seems that the protests worked. Those pictures of Black folks hugging cops certainly did the trick.

‘We are just gonna go out and start slaughtering them’: Three cops fired after racist talk of killing black residents

Sitting in his patrol car in Wilmington, N.C., Officer Michael “Kevin” Piner predicted Black Lives Matter protests would soon lead to civil war. “I’m ready,” Piner told another officer, adding that he planned to buy an assault rifle.

We are just going to go out and start slaughtering them fucking niggers,” he said. “Wipe ’em off the fucking map,” Piner said of African Americans. “That’ll put ’em back about four or five generations.”

The two then complained about black officers on the force, calling one a “piece of shit” and complaining that another was “sitting on his ass” during the protests. “Let’s see how his boys take care of him when shit gets rough, see if they don’t put a bullet in his head,” Piner said.

Moore, who also was hired in 1997, called him[Piner] to describe a recent arrest of a black woman, repeatedly calling her a racial slur.

“She needed a bullet in the head right then and move on,” Moore said of the woman. “Let’s move the body out of the way and keep going.”

Later, while complaining about a black judge whom Moore called a “fucking nigger magistrate,” Moore added.

Now if that shit ain’t the Klan, what the fuck are they? That’s supposed to ‘Protect and Serve’ American descendants of slavery? And then people have the nerve to wonder why I am not at all impressed by some whites standing at a protest. This would be why. That Klan shit that made those statements are family members, friends and acquaintances of what’s been out on the streets, pretending solidarity with American descendants of slavery and yet I am supposed to believe that whites have suddenly changed from the vicious, depraved, deranged, blood thirsty shits they’ve always been? Not fucking ever! Re-read the above quote and then get back to me on how I am supposed to take whites at face value just because the media shows me some pictures of them standing shoulder to shoulder with some Black folks.

And so what? They have been fired from THAT police department, but that does not mean that they cannot get rehired at another police department in another state. The police chief said he would consult with prosecutors about potential criminal charges against the three men, and would ask them to review whether any of the former officers had shown bias toward criminal defendants in the past.

Oh, we can well believe that “bias toward BLACK criminal defendants,” was shown. Just ask the Black woman who was arrested by Moore. If she can still communicate, I am pretty sure that she is still complaining about her injuries as a direct result of having been arrested by a member of the Klan.

And we are not fucking shit up over here even though we know that we are NEVER going to get from underneath the system of white supremacy. When shit like this comes to light, can you just imagine what does not? How are we expected to stand a snowball’s chance in hell of having any chance at living in this shithole when we’ve got that shit on our asses, daily? We are not expected to and that is why we are dying on the means streets of every city in this shithole.

Those Klan motherfuckers, when confronted with taped evidence of their racism, denied being racist. WHAT.THE.FUCK. Even though they admitted that they were the ones speaking, they still denied that they were racist. So, as you can see, they are also lunatics. And I have often stated that whites are so rabid in their insane hatred of us that they are beyond hope and those racist shits just proved what I’ve said to be only too true!

How can we march through the streets with the relatives of that? How can we pay for meals for what would say that? How can we hug those stomp down, flaming racist KKK members in uniform? First, we buy them breakfast!

 

Seriously???!!!

 

 

After paying for their breakfast, we can’t help but hug them! For the love of!!!!

Black people!!! Why the hell are you falling for this shit???!! What is wrong with you??? That shit is why George Floyd’s family is burying him and you want to ‘hug’ THAT shit???!!! I’m fucking done!

You want to hug Michael “Kevin” Piner who said, “We are just going to go out and start slaughtering them fucking niggers,” he said. “Wipe ’em off the fucking map?” Yes indeed, go on up to Michael “Kevin” Piner and hug him. Go ahead and buy him breakfast. That’s what you’ve been doing to these loathsome, monstrous creatures that only want to “slaughter you fucking niggers” is what he said. But because a few cops take a knee and walk down the street with you, that makes you believe that cops are our friends now, is that about right? And then I have the nerve to wonder why American descendants of slavery, of ALL the groups over here in this shithole, have made NO gains whatsoever. I take to task some Australian piece of shit for his comments on the protesters when I should just be appalled and outraged over the fact that we fucking NEVER learn. We still want to believe in the ‘goodness’ of our oppressors when there is not a gnat’s ass worth of goodness in not one single white piece of shit who marched with Black protesters; NOT ONE!

This is what the kops do to us and you want to hug them and buy meals for them for this??!!!

Does it look like those racist thugs in blue uniforms are going to get up off our necks, backs and every other part of our body? But yet, you want to hug this shit! You want to ‘believe’ in the ‘goodness’ of this shit! Seriously???!!!

And this!

Does this look like kops give a shit about you? Do you think those kops don’t have the full ‘blessing’ of the whites in this shithole to continue doing that shit? If those whites who are protesting what whites did to George Floyd gave a damn, what happened to George Floyd would not have happened. Countless Black lives have been lost due to the whites intense hatred of us and that is NEVER going to change, no matter how much some of you Black people think that it is!!! Get your shit together!

And this!

But because those racist shits take a goddamn knee,

Those bastards are practicing what Chauvin did to George Floyd and yet Black people think that that is some fake ass show of ‘solidarity’ with them for what went down on a Minneapolis street. For the love of !!!!!!

 

…your Black ass is satisfied that they are down with us! Are you fucking stupid Black motherfuckers for real? But you want “Justice! Stop the racist police!” According to you, there is ‘justice’, there is no racist police since you’re hugging them and impressed with a few of them taking a damn worthless ass knee. You demand so very little and since you demand so very little, so very little is what you are going to get from the whites, along with their continued knee on your neck, along with their bullets piercing your flesh, along with the funeral marches to cemeteries, along with more marching and more protesting because you believe in the ‘goodness’ of some damn no account whites who marched beside you in the recent protests.

But you better believe this!

“We are just going to go out and start slaughtering them fucking niggers,” he said. “Wipe ’em off the fucking map,” Piner said of African Americans. “That’ll put ’em back about four or five generations.” – racist former Klan Kop Michael “Kevin” Piner

“She needed a bullet in the head right then and move on,” Moore said of the [Black]woman [he arrested]. “Let’s move the body out of the way and keep going.”

Later, while complaining about a black judge whom Moore called a “fucking nigger magistrate,” Moore added.

Keep believing in the ‘goodness’ of whites and just like Michael “Kevin” Piner said, “that’ll put us back about four or five generations.”

Remember, whites don’t really need us anymore. They’ve got the Mexicans working the fields and they’ve got the Africans over here who came over of their own free will. We’re just an embarrassment; a reminder of the past that whites have long been trying to whitewash. They’ve even tried putting textbooks out that replaced slavery with IMMIGRATION. “What slaves?” says the whites. “They were ALL immigrants!” That’s the ‘goodness’ of whites.  Their ‘goodness’ just keeps getting ‘better’ for us, does it not? Gentrification, high infant mortality rates, high mortality rates of Black women during childbirth, other disparities in health care, mass homelessness, income inequality, food insecurity, mass joblessness, low wage jobs, no health care, mass incarceration, police brutality, drug addiction, gang violence, brutal murder of us by racist kops, no real Black generational wealth, no tangible or intangible assets, Black net worth around $7.00. Oh the whites have long been slaughtering us just as racist kop Michael “Kevin” Piner said, “We are just going to go out and start slaughtering them fucking niggers,” “Wipe ’em off the fucking map,” “That’ll put ’em back about four or five generations.” -says ALL whites about American descendants of slavery.

Believe in the ‘goodness’ of whites and your ass is grass!

 

Violent or Peaceful Protest? — Levine Lowdown

Violent protest or peaceful protest? This question has been challenged for centuries, and still, people argue and disagree over the most effective way to protest. The recent black lives matter protests around the world following the death of George Floyd highlighted the tension between two sides of protestors. As one side destroyed all objects in […]

via Violent or Peaceful Protest? — Levine Lowdown

First of all, I did what I said I’d never do; I got into it with another blogger on their blog. But in this instance, I must have been too weak to help myself because I have had it with foreigners who sit somewhere in another country and have the nerve to pretend as though they know of our experience here in Amerikkka.

The author of this particular blog lives in Australia. And I should have known right off the bat, that any white Australian speaking on protests going on in the U.S. would take exception because in all reality, the Aborigines should be protesting to get those Botany Bay Penal Colony convict rejects from out of their country.

The whites are always going to go on and on about how peaceful protesting is the means to an end; yeah, our end. Just ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., how well that peaceful protesting worked out for him. He was felled by an assassin’s bullet thanks to Dr. King peacefully protesting which seemed to have lit a spark in the whites who had him murdered for going about things all peaceful like.

Here is my first comment on the article in question:

During the Civil Rights Movement, peaceful protesters were met with violence from ‘the state’, meaning the federal government and on the local level. You don’t remember seeing pictures of hoses and dogs being sicced on peaceful Black protesters? Those people were then jailed for their peaceful protesting. So, why is it okay for the federal government to act violently towards peaceful protesters, but yet, you seem to take umbrage with protesters who turn violent since ‘peaceful’ protesting doesn’t work either? So why don’t you ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., how well peaceful protesting worked out for him. It was ‘peaceful protesting’ that got him an assassin’s bullet.

We have tried it both ways and neither works. The fact of the matter is that American descendants of slavery are damned if we do and damned if we don’t.

I lived in Minneapolis, MN for over a decade and I can tell you that what burned down was NOT owned by American descendants of slavery. Where the majority of the riots occurred is an area known to have a high concentration of immigrants from Mexico, Asia and Africa. One or two stores may have been owned by American descendants of slavery and I know this for a fact because I was in Minneapolis just as recently as this past November. And so I get so sick and tired of people going on and on about how Black people are burning down their own neighborhoods. We don’t own any neighborhoods. We don’t own multiple stores; grocery stores, banks, department stores, etc., and I am sure that you know this.

Until whites want to tear down the system of white supremacy from which they benefit, nothing that Black people do, be it peacefully or non-peacefully is going to make a bit of difference. And I do believe you know this already.

To which the blog’s author responded with:

Yes, MLK was assassinated. But, it was his peaceful protesting that resulting in 4 legislative changes and the introduction of the civil rights act in 1968. Malcom X was not responsible for any legislative change.

I’m not saying that the businesses that were destroyed were necessarily owned by African Americans. However, many African Americans died during the protest not by the police, some businesses were destroyed as you have noted. This whole process is about reconciliation, we in Australia are going through the exact same thing. It’s about reconciling with those who were first, violence is contrary to the action of reconciliation.

You sound defeated. I find that disappointing. We have just witnessed 4 straight weeks of MILLIONS of people around the world leaving their normal life behind to fight for equality. People have abandoned their social media image which society asks them to create, and instead have turned to activism. We have witnessed the power of people to charge more police officers. This is a time of hope that needs to be sustained, I don’t think we should be defeated.

And of course, I took it from there!

Again, I have to disagree with you. Nothing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and crew did, amounted to anything. The Supreme Court gutted key provisions of the Voting Rights Act which is what Dr. King fought so hard for; Black people to have the right to vote and an end to Jim Crow. Many Black people are being denied the right to vote. You haven’t heard of gerrymandering? And Jim Crow never ended, it just morphed into a different way of keeping Black people from entering certain areas of town and certain restaurants, etc. Whites started building ‘gated communities’ and now we have gentrification. And so AGAIN, nothing was accomplished. I am in the states and so I know, first hand what is going down and what has been going down for my over 40 years on this planet.

And the only reason MILLIONS of people are somewhere protesting or whatever they want to call it is not because of some ‘awakening’ but because they are unemployed thanks to COVID-19, have been on lockdown for months and have had it. This was just the perfect storm of mess that coincided. You give people too much credit where none is due. I’m a realist. I see the reality of the situation while you want to believe in ‘hope and change’. We thought we had that with Barack Obama and that got us what? Donald Trump! I rest my case.

Now, I thought that we were finished, but apparently not because the author of the blog responded with this:

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I will never completely understand your oppression and struggles but I will continue to listen and try to learn. I am interested however in your statement that MLK didn’t do anything. Who do you think was responsible for the civil rights act 1968?

I disagree with you on this point completely. You are saying that millions of people were protesting just because they are sick of being in their homes? That explains nothing. That doesn’t explain the emotion on these people’s faces. That doesn’t explain the passion that led some to violence. That doesn’t explain the images of people joining together as one. Sure, maybe a few just wanted to get outside, but this was a huge movement of people joining together. I’m a realist aswell. I don’t think this is all going to fix itself in 5, 10 or 20 years. But, I am an optimistic realist, I think over time change can occur. Barack Obama wasn’t successful because he didn’t have full control of America’s politics. If Joe Biden also has support in the Senate, powerful change can always occur if it is supported by appropriate services.

Apparently, I could not let that stand and so replied:

You seriously lack knowledge of America’s political system. For his first two years in office, Barack Obama could have gotten much completed since both the Senate and the House were in the hands of the Democrats. Nothing got done. It was only after that control had shifted to the Republicans is when Obama claimed to have been stalled when attempting to get anything done.

And just what did the Civil Rights Act of 1968 accomplish? Because when you look at where Black people are today, that Act did nothing. Black people are the poster children for the faces of poverty, gentrification, homelessness, mass incarceration, income inequality, illiteracy, victims of police brutality and the list of the like is endless. An Act does nothing when the same mindset is still there and the same mindset of the whites in 1968 is still very much in evidence today.

And I know that you did not go there with regards to Joe Biden when he is mostly responsible for why American descendants of slavery are overly represented in prisons all across America due to his 1994 Crime Bill. He’s been on an ‘apology tour’ about that. You seriously need to educate yourself before speaking on issues here in America.

And we still weren’t through! His response was:

I’m disappointed this discussion had to go down this route. I thought we were debating some really interesting points and it was very insightful. However, I will not continue if we go down the persona attack route because that has no purpose.

Regardless, sorry I did not know that the first 2 years of Obama’s Presidency he had control of both the Senate and the House. I made the mistake of assuming his second term was the same as his first term. What do you think needs to be done as the first step and then possibly subsequent steps?

I wasn’t talking about the effectiveness of the act, but rather the role of MLK in creating the act. As I’ve said, legislation is only effective when it is supported by services that ensure accountability, enforcement and education.

I do know about the 1994 Crime Bill. I have researched it heavily and understand Biden’s negative impact. My point was that the two options are Trump or Biden. Clearly Trump isn’t going to achieve anything in this area other than take us backwards. If Biden can pass legislation there is a chance change could occur due to his very progressive agenda.

And even then, I could not let him get away with that!

Biden doesn’t have ANY agenda. The man is senile. If you even look at any of his political ads, the man is actually stumbling over his words. His nickname is “Slow Joe.” No one takes him seriously. He is NOT the person to beat Trump. With Joe Biden as the only alternative, Trump is a shoe-in. That is a fact. The Democrats don’t care about winning this election because they stand for exactly what Trump stands for. There is no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. There is no longer any illusion of that.

Have you never stopped to wonder why Black Americans fare so poorly regardless of whether a Democrat or a Republican is at the helm? It is because there is no difference between them. Biden is not progressive and the only reason he was picked as the choice for the Democrats is based off of Biden’s position as Obama’s VP. That is all the Democrats are throwing at Trump. Someone who mumbles, is incoherent, has been groping females for decades and was Obama’s VP. Only older voters are even thinking about Biden as most of the rest of us are sighing and throwing our hands up because there is nothing to vote for.

Most of us are already preparing for the FACT that Trump is going to get re-elected. He has nothing standing in his way. And in fact, if you want to give anyone credit for what’s going down today, give it to Trump. He has made so many whites unhappy since they are also unemployed, hungry and broke, that they are expressing that anger towards Trump. But make no mistake, Trump’s base is still solidly behind him since racism is alive and kicking in Amerikkka and always will be.

Folks, we have got so many Monday morning quarterbacks, it’s ridiculous. How is someone over in Australia going to tell Black people what we need to do in so far as how we go about protesting especially when their shit reeks to the stars and back? Those descendants of convict rejects are sitting somewhere on their pasty asses talking about how peaceful our asses should be when they did not ‘peacefully’ take the land away from the Aborigines and quite frankly, to this very day, treat those people like shit! But yet, this piece of shit Botany Bay Penal Colony reject wants to get all offended when I push back on his attempts to tell us what to do here in Amerikkka. I don’t give a fuck about being polite when someone is speaking on a subject they obviously have no knowledge of whatsoever.

And I don’t even know what he meant by this!

However, I will not continue if we go down the persona attack route because that has no purpose.

How in the hell did I personally attack him? The TRUTH attacked him? Because that’s the only thing I threw at him. Not once did I cuss, throw a fit or even flip out and yet, I still get, “the persona attack route.” What the hell? Dude couldn’t handle what was coming at him, that is quite obvious and so then resorted to lying about ‘personal attacks’. For the love of !! That’s a white person for you! When they can’t best you, they claim you’ve ‘personally attacked’ them, WITH WORDS! For the love of !!!!!

As I have already stated, we have tried IT.ALL. And nothing has worked for us; not peaceful protesting, not violent protesting and this is because the system of white supremacy is going to make sure that ANY protests are going to be met with violence from the government. But it seems that according to some piece of shit over in Australia, the violence displayed by the government is nothing next to some burned out taco trucks and a fire in Target. We should just continue to love dying at the hands of the KKK that makes up police departments all across Amerikkka because some piece of shit in Australia believes everything would be okay if only we peacefully protest and vote in Joe Biden as the next president. Seriously???!!!

It is quite obviously time for me to go back to reading fluff and nonsense. The next book, that I’m getting out now, is Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon.

But first, this is for ‘Australian dude’.

Also from the article:

Killer Mike is a wonderful advocate and I do agree with him that looting/destroying small businesses especially those owned by POC would not be helping the movement.

Okay first, let’s take apart the chart.

The broken windows theory is a criminological theory that states that visible signs of crime, anti-social behavior, and civil disorder create an urban environment that encourages further crime and disorder, including serious crimes. The theory suggests that policing methods that target minor crimes such as vandalism, loitering, public drinking, jaywalking and fare evasion help to create an atmosphere of order and lawfulness, thereby preventing more serious crime.

Broken windows policing is just an excuse to lock up as many Black people as possible on bullshit charges in order to ‘feed’ them to the Prison Industrial Complex which is the new SLAVERY! Black people who are homeless are being fed to the system since loitering has been made a crime and usually Black people are criminalized for loitering simply because they lack a home. Black people are also ticketed for jaywalking. For the love of !!!

Community Oversight.

Many cities have implemented community oversight and yet, why are we still attempting to claim that the answer to police murdering Black people is simply more community involvement when that has not been working, ANYWHERE? Police are still killing Black people with impunity despite some cities with community oversight committees. If it has shown to not work, then why keep at it?

Limit use of force.

How has that been working out? If it has been working, then why are we still talking about the fact that so many kops are guilty of using excessive force to subdue suspects and are in fact, killing the suspects before they can even make it to jail. Cops have become judge, jury and executioner, right on the streets, in broad day light and on camera and so cops limiting use of force is not going to happen with what’s already on police forces all across this racist shithole guilty of using excessive force on American descendants of slavery every damn day.

Independently Investigate and Prosecute.

Really? Seriously? The whites will still make up the ‘independent investigative’ board and will come to the same conclusions that the ‘in house’ investigators come to. What is going to change? Nothing.

Community Representation.

AGAIN, there have been calls for community representation, many times and even with community representation, the shit continues to go down and so therefore, makes community representation, null and void. Whites are NOT going to listen to a group of Black people from their few remaining communities talk about a damn thing as it relates to holding white kops accountable for their out-of-control, rampant abuse and brutality of American descendants of slavery.

Body cams/Film the police

AGAIN, the kops just shut the body cams off whenever they are about to do some dirty shit. Not to mention, why should kops be given the ability to cut off the body cams in the first place? It is for the express purpose of turning those cameras off in order to hide the criminal shit they do. Also, who is monitoring the supposedly ‘monitored’? Those who sit in the offices of police headquarters can just as easily delete anything that they don’t want seen on camera. So body cams are NOT the answer since there are still multiple incidents of police brutality and the police just turn off the body cams and even when bystanders film events of police brutality, the police still get off. Eric Garner’s killer got off and what was done to him was captured on video and the person who captured the murder of Eric Garner on video, himself went to jail while the kop that murdered Eric Garner is free as a  bird. So yeah, outfitting ALL kops with body cams is going to work. 🙄🙄🙄 Serious fucking eye roll!

Training.

Do I really even need to go there? We ALL see what happens when kops are trained; Black people get murdered by them. End.Of.Story.

End for profit policing.

Like that’s going to happen. The criminal INjustice system gets the bulk of its money from victimless crimes. Before Philando Castile was murdered, various municipalities had relieved that man of over $6,000 in tickets from everything from a suspended license to expired insurance to driving with expired tags. The man was stopped so many times, I am sure that he came to expect it every single time he started up his vehicle. Police departments are not going to end quotas for tickets and arrests. Nor will they stop issuing fines or arrest warrants for poor Black people who cannot pay and so go to jail, Nor is the criminal INjustice system going to cease seizing property of civilians (i.e. civil forfeiture). It is too lucrative.

Demilitarization.

Are you serious? With all of the equipment from warzones on the streets today that were used to contain the previous protests and people actually expect police departments ALL across this shithole to give up what they requested and received from the Pentagon? Get real. Those militarized vehicles are not going anywhere. The military style techniques that were recently used on peaceful protesters aren’t going anywhere. I don’t care how many calls there are for a demilitarization of police departments, that is never going to happen. Why…what would they do with ALL of that military equipment? Allow it to sit and collect dust? Yeah! And the ‘toothfairy’ is real.

Fair police union contracts.

“Most states permit police officers to bargain collectively over the terms of their employment, including the content of internal disciplinary procedures. This means that police union contracts—largely negotiated outside of public view—shape the content of disciplinary procedures used by American police departments.”

And so if you believe that that is going to change, then believe this, I’ve got some great beachfront property for sale right smack dab in the middle of Death Valley. It’s gorgeous!

Now I’d like to tackle this!

Killer Mike is a wonderful advocate and I do agree with him that looting/destroying small businesses especially those owned by POC would not be helping the movement.

First of all, this ‘Killer Mike’ is NOT a ‘wonderful advocate’. His shirt includes the wording, “Kill Your Masters,” but his actual words state otherwise. ‘Killer Mike’ seems to be under the impression that gentrification is something that the whites plan on implementing when they get to Mars. Whites actually believe that they will land on the red planet some day and apparently, ‘Killer Mike’ believes that then and only then, will the whites implement ‘gentrification’. Other than that, they’re waiting on the rapture to put that shit into play. The reality is, ‘Killer Mike’ is NOT living in reality. He is not living in the ‘real world’.

‘Killer Mike’ said in the video and I quote, “I wanted to see the whole world burn down because I am tired of seeing Black men die!”

‘Killer Mike’ is “tired of seeing Black men die!” Never mind Black women and children, he is only incensed over Black men dying at the hands of cops. Black women and children are on their own. Someone else can be “tired of seeing Black women and children die”  at the hands of racist kops. You see how incredibly insensitive Black men are when it comes to Black women and Black children? We don’t even get included when Black men get “tired.” That, in and of itself, is quite telling.

“I wanted to see the whole world burn down…”

But then ‘Killer Mike’ turned right around and said this. “We need to plot, plan, strategize, organize and mobilize.” Uh…I’ve heard that somewhere before. Oh, now I remember, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and crew tried that already and look where we are, right back at square one in needing to “plot, plan, strategize, organize and mobilize.” Yeah, that worked SO well for us. That is why we are where we are, AGAIN, at square one.

I do agree with him that looting/destroying small businesses especially those owned by POC would not be helping the movement.

First of all, POC or ‘people of color’ are not American descendants of slavery. POC are immigrants. You’re getting the shit twisted. Whatever burned down when the shit hit the fan after what went down in Minneapolis, MN, did NOT belong to American descendants of slavery beyond two stores. The rest were owned by foreigners. I am TIRED of American descendants of slavery continuously grouped in with foreigners/immigrants/refugees who are NOT even in our corner. If some Mexican taco trucks burned to the ground, what’s that got to do with American descendants of slavery? If some African halal meat markets burned to the ground, what’s that got to do with American descendants of slavery? If a Target was set on fire, what’s that got to do with American descendants of slavery? If a new apartment development got burned to the ground, what’s that got to do with American descendants of slavery, especially since we will continue to walk around Minneapolis, MN, HOMELESS even if that development was finished because make no mistake, the faces of the homeless in Minneapolis, MN are American descendants of slavery? And so, come again about what we’d be missing out on with some burned out buildings? Because newsflash! We got no stake in any of those so-called POC small businesses that got destroyed. They were not owned by American descendants of slavery. Even the few homes that American descendants of slavery reside in are not owned by them. They are paying some whites or some foreigner, rent to live in substandard housing.

As far as I am concerned, the shit should still be burning because that is ALL whites understand, loss of revenue; capitalism ground to a halt. Whites understand NOTHING else.  So, we don’t need anymore sellouts telling us what the fuck we need to do about some damn businesses and neighborhoods filled to bursting with foreigners that the whites welcomed over here to help fuck us up even more than what the whites were already doing. Take that fake ass ‘new Black movement’ shit and shove it! We don’t need no more ‘Uncle Toms’ standing around spouting bullshit. If you ain’t about the damn thing, then get to stepping because the last thing we need is to hear about how we are burning down some shit that we don’t even fucking own. Believe me, if the shit had been ours, we would not have been burning it down. It really is that simple. But what these coonheads can’t seem to get is that a people with nothing to lose, will act like it. The sad part is, they refuse to keep the momentum going! And since we refuse to keep the momentum going, don’t be surprised at how quickly you’ll be fired up again when the next video surfaces of yet another white kop murdering a Black person and looking as though he is merely munching on a donut while watching a tire deflate.

 

Black Corrections Officers Are Filing Racial Discrimination Charges Against ‘The System of White Supremacy’ In Minnesota! I’m So Surprised! 🙄🙄🙄🙄

You dumb Black bastards who join up with whites who lock up those of us who look like you, really think that those whites in the criminal INjustice system give a shit about YOUR Black ass? Really? Seriously?

Eight Ramsey County corrections officers of color say they were barred from guarding Derek Chauvin

Chauvin was booked at the county jail the same day he was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.

As Chauvin arrived, all officers of color were ordered to a separate floor, and a supervisor told one of them that, because of their race, they would be a potential “liability” around Chauvin, according a copy of racial discrimination charges obtained by the Star Tribune.

“I understood that the decision to segregate us had been made because we could not be trusted to carry out our work responsibilities professionally around the high-profile inmate — solely because of the color of our skin,” wrote one acting sergeant, who is black. “I am not aware of a similar situation where white officers were segregated from an inmate.”

So let me get this straight, the whites thought that those Black punk ass bitches would do some harm to Derek Chauvin? I just know they could not have thought that because that would not even register with those coons that do the bidding of massa against their own kind. Those Black thugs that act as corrections officers are just as brutal and lacking in any integrity as those white corrections officers. And for anyone to believe otherwise, is foolish.

“Out of care and concern, and without the comfort of time, I made a decision to limit exposure to employees of color to a murder suspect who could potentially aggravate those feelings,” Steve Lydon reportedly said in a statement given during an internal investigation and provided by the Sheriff’s Office. He has since been demoted.

Oh yes, whites are so caring and concerned about the feelings of American descendants of slavery that they are just trying to look out for our feelings when we meet up with another member of the Klan. The Klan makes up the criminal INjustice system and so those Black guards know exactly what they are dealing with and yet, they sign up for those jobs anyway. Lydon knew that he was not sparing anyone’s feelings because those Black guards don’t have any feelings to begin with for if they did, they could not do what they do. There is no way that I could work as a corrections officer and see the shit that the whites visit on Black inmates, day in and day out and not go out of my mind. Those Black corrections officers are no better than their white counterparts.

The whites are going to do what they want to do and to hell with what anyone says. To hell with their own damn laws, which quite obviously, don’t apply to them. They just apply to everyone else, especially seeing as how Lydon was not fired. He was merely demoted. But I am sure that his pay grade is still the same. He is just doing less work. He’s now got his feet up on a different desk.

But let that have been some Black man telling whites that they could not oversee a Black prisoner because they might want to lynch his ass and that Black man would have been fired so damn fast, my head would be spinning.

So, as you can see, things are really changing. The protests and the riots accomplished SO much. Tearing down statues are exactly what was needed since that is the equivalent of putting a bandaid on a bullet wound and expecting the patient to be okay. Really? Whites, we don’t need the ‘least’ that you can do. What you need to do, you won’t do and so just sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up already because there may be some Black folks that are buying your lame ass attempts to get us to understand that you are now taking notice of the shit that you’ve been visiting on our Black asses since forever, but for every one of those who is buying it, there are two of us who are not.

And quite frankly, I am ashamed to admit that there are Black women who are buying the whites bullshit, lame ass attempts at pretending to give a shit about them.

Two Black women actually paid for a meal for some sheriff’s deputy and left this note.

Now ain’t that just some shit??!!!

Sheriff’s deputy is touched by a note left by two black women after an anonymous act of kindness

A Tennessee sheriff’s deputy got a heartfelt surprise after two black women anonymously paid for his meal at Cracker Barrel.

Deputy Jody McDowell thanked the women for their generosity in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

“I want to thank the two sweet black ladies who paid for my breakfast this morning,” he said. “While waiting for a transport to be completed, I decided to have breakfast at a Cracker Barrel near the Nashville airport.”

Accompanying his post was a photo of the note the women left with their act of kindness: “BLM, but so does yours! Thank you for your service. Breakfast paid.”

 

The day I pay for some goddamn racist piece of shit’s meal is the day elephants take over Yellow Stone Park. What is wrong with us? Our lives will NEVER matter to the whites and yet we are going to tell a piece of shit, sheriff’s deputy that his life matters when that piece of shit more than likely headed right out of the door and bust some poor Black child in the head for being Black. Because make no mistake, the horrific shit that gets recorded does in no way, showcase just how depraved and brutal those thugs in badges are. There are Black people to this day who cannot be accounted for and it is because they were pulled over by racists in uniforms, shot and their bodies were discarded like yesterday’s garbage and yet, those two Black fools were paying for that piece of shit’s meal and telling him that his ‘life mattered’. Oh he knows his life matters, but what you don’t seem to realize, fools, is that to him, your fucking life don’t matter.

I give up! I just fucking give up!

“Attorney Michael F. Cockson, You Lost The Appeal For More Attorney’s Fees And So Where Is My Cousin’s Class Action Settlement Money?”

 

 

Some of you may know that I published several posts regarding the fact that my cousin was part of an $18.5 million dollar class action lawsuit because he rented from slumlords who had no valid rental licenses in Minneapolis, MN.

Steve Frenz and Spiros Zorbalas teemed up to run a scam on the City of Minneapolis, MN when the City of Minneapolis, MN ran ‘The Slumlord of Minneapolis’, Spiros Zorbalas, out of Minneapolis by stripping him of his rental licenses on ALL rental properties in Minneapolis, MN.

Then along comes Steve Frenz who told the City of Minneapolis, MN that he had purchased ALL of the properties that had been previously owned by Spiros Zorbalas. The City of Minneapolis, MN then approved rental licenses for the properties that had been owned by Spiros Zorbalas. However, the fact of the matter is that Spiros Zorbalas still owned the rental properties that Steve Frenz claimed he now owned, thus making his rental licenses, null and void. Meanwhile, thousands of mostly low income minority tenants were paying rent to live in vermin and rodent infested buildings that were substandard to say the least in that many had no heat, no hot water, crumbling stairs, unsecured mailboxes, bedbugs and the list is endless.

The City of Minneapolis, MN ‘claimed’ to have no knowledge of the fraud being perpetrated by Spiros Zorbalas and Steve Frenz. Enter Attorney Michael F. Cockson, who was initially contacted by Inquilinxs Unidos, a renters’ union out of Minneapolis, MN that helps immigrants with housing and other issues they face. Attorney Michael F. Cockson, a partner at the law firm, FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402 agreed to take the case on behalf of Inquilinxs Unidos. However, after learning of the scope of tenants who were adversely impacted by unclean and unsafe building conditions, Judge Mary Vasaly upgraded the case to class action status and said that all former and current renters were to receive ALL rent payments that they had made to Steve Frenz, The Apartment Shop LLC and various other holding companies that Frenz had started up to hide the fact that Spiros Zorbalas still owned the properties that he was acting as front man for.

The case was eventually settled for $18.5 million which was relegated to the coffers of the Settlement Administrators, BrownGreerPLC, located in Richmond, VA, which was to get in excess of $300,000 to send mailings to class members and to mail out checks to class members. Commonbond and another company was named as recipients of checks that should have been relegated to class members and only to class members. See here for details.

However, Attorney Michael F. Cockson was not happy with 25% of the settlement funds awarded to him by Judge Mary Vasaly and so sued his own clients in the Court of Appeals for 32% of the class action settlement funds. Now originally, he would have received over $6 million dollars from a case that he took because he wanted to “Give a voice to those who could not speak for themselves” and to “compensate them for their living conditions” and yet as of today, the appeal for more in Attorney’s Fees for Michael F. Cockson’s greedy ass is still in ‘briefing’ status with the Court of Appeals.

After I blogged about this on June 14, 2019, four days later, the Settlement Administrators called and told my cousin that the settlement checks had been mailed out on June 17, 2019. Below is a copy of the settlement check that my cousin received as his share of the $18.5 million dollar class action lawsuit.

 

So, even though my cousin paid thousands upon thousands in rent to rent an apartment that had multiple safety issues and code violations and was not even licensed to be rented, he received $724.15 while Attorney Michael F. Cockson, a partner at the law firm, FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402 is suing my cousin and all other members of this class action lawsuit that he initiated on behalf of his clients for more in Attorney’s Fees than what Judge Vasaly approved for his greedy ass. Michael F. Cockson wants more than the over $6 million that has already been taken from his poor, misused and abused clients who had been shitted on by the likes of Spiros Zorbalas and Steve Frenz.

However, Michael Cockson’s greedy ass was stopped in his tracks in trying to collect 32% of the class action settlement in Attorney’s Fees by the Minnesota Court of Appeals because the Minnesota Court of Appeals agreed with the District Court’s decision that granted Michael F. Cockson, 25% in Attorney’s Fees. That greedy bastard, Michael F. Cockson, then petitioned the Minnesota Supreme Court and the Minnesota Supreme Court DENIED his PETITION FOR REVIEW and so the decision of the Minnesota District Court’s decision still stands, your greedy ass was already awarded over $6 million dollars and you wanted more and so the Minnesota Court of Appeals Court said, “FUCK NO!” Now where is my cousin’s goddamn money? Where are your other client’s goddamn money, greedy ass Michael F. Cockson of FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402, Telephone number: 612-766-8425?

The District Court found that for class action settlements the size of this case and in the consumer category, the average, mean,and median percentages ranged from20% to 26% of the common fund. Appellant concedes there is no case law in Minnesota expressly rejecting the use of empirical studies to determine awards of attorney fees. Moreover, we know of no case that prohibits the use of such studies. The district court did not abuse its discretion when it relied in part on empirical studies to conclude that a fee award of 25% of the common-fund settlement in this case was fair and reasonable.

The district court declined to employ the lodestar method, noting its concerns that the lodestar method “create[s] a temptation for lawyers to run up the number of hours for which they [are] paid.”See In re Union Carbide Corp. Consumer Prods. Bus. Sec. Litig., 724 F.Supp. 160, 167-68 (S.D.N.Y. 1989). Appellant concedes there is no legal authority requiring the district court to perform a lodestar cross-check to confirm the reasonableness of the fee award. Because it is within the district court’s discretion to decline to employ a lodestar cross-check,the district court did not abuse its discretion. Affirmed.

 

Below is the final status of the appeal and as you can see, that greedy bastard, Michael F. Cockson, appealed to the Supreme Court for more in Attorney’s Fees after the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the lower court’s decision on his Attorney’s Fees and the Supreme Court DENIED his PETITION FOR FURTHER REVIEW! The District Court’s ruling stands. Your greedy ass was to receive 25% of the settlement and despite your appeals and even your Supreme Court filings, 25% is still what you are to receive and not the 32% that you quite actually, jumped up and down in trying to get. So, where is my cousin’s goddamn money? And for ANY others who were part of this class action lawsuit, get on the phone( 612-766-8425) and call that greedy bastard, Michael F. Cockson, and DEMAND to know when you are to receive the monies that should have been set aside PENDING the out come of his APPEAL for more in Attorney’s Fees than what the judge initially decreed.

 

 

 

Below is the actual outcome of the appeal. The appeal is FINAL. The Minnesota Supreme Court refused to hear the case. The judgment stands.

 

 

 

 

What does the legal term affirmed mean?
Dictionary of Legal Terms. Affirmed. Affirmed – this is a legal term used in the practice of courts of appeal. It means that the court of appeal has concluded that the lower court decision is correct. It will stand as proclaimed by the lower court and enters into force immediately.
Affirmed

 

In the practice of the court of appeals, it means that the court of appeals has concluded that the lower court decision is correct and will stand as rendered by the lower court.

 

 

And then folks have the nerve to wonder why what the fuck is going down in Minnesota is going down? This would be one reason why. This particular lawsuit involved more American descendants of slavery than the lawsuits that Attorney Michael F. Cockson previously took on a pro bono basis and so for this particular case, as you can see, he fought long and hard, FOR TWO GODDAMN YEARS to get money that he should have been glad that his clients received since he supposedly took on the case to give justice to those who had been living like shit in unlicensed apartments. But what does he do? Why, he appeals for more in Attorney’s Fees, thus taking money out of the pockets of his very own clients. What goddamn sense does that make?

Michael F. Cockson settled the case knowing that he had settled the case for $18.5 million and he knew how many people would be involved in this class action case, so why then, would he turn around and basically sue his own damn clients for more of the class action settlement in Attorney’s Fees when he was the one who initially settled the case; agreed to the amount? Only to turn right around and get pissed because the judge disagreed with his bloated litigation costs; because make no mistake, that is what this all boils down to. If you go to https://www.minneapolisapartmentlitigation.com/ and look under ‘documents’, you will see what that bastard was charging for fees that would have eaten up the entire $18.5 million settlement.

If you ever meet an attorney, you can damn sure as hell bet that you are meeting THE most sheisty motherfucker you will ever NOT want to meet! I can honestly say that I have NEVER had honest dealings with ANY attorney. They ALL should be disbarred because they are ALL criminals who should be behind bars for the sheisty shits they are!

Why I Did NOT ‘Celebrate’ Juneteenth

 

 

So, what exactly is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth

[jo͞oːnˌtēːnTH, ˌjo͞onˈtēnTH, jo͞o:nˈtē:nTH]

a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.
What does emancipation mean?
emancipation

[əˌmansəˈpāSH(ə)n]

NOUN
the fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation.
“the emancipation of feminist ideas”
synonyms:
freeing · liberation · liberating · setting free · release · releasing · letting loose/out · setting loose/free · discharge · unchaining · unfettering · unshackling · untying · unyoking · uncaging · unbridling · freedom · liberty · manumission · disenthrallment
  • the freeing of someone from slavery.
    “the early struggle for emancipation from slavery”

 

So when you look at why Juneteenth is celebrated and you look at what emancipation means, tell me, American Descendants of Slavery, how are you free, liberated, unshackled, unyoked, uncaged, unbridled and unfettered?

When the protesters were in Minneapolis going the fuck off, those who are descendants of the racist shits that enslaved our ancestors were busy spying on the mostly Black protesters via drones, spy planes and spy helicopters in order to arrest people who were supposedly, liberated. But we know that we are not liberated because the protesters were protesting because a Black man was detained and murdered for no reason. So, what were you celebrating on Juneteenth? That you enjoy enslavement? That you enjoy being spied on by the same government that dragged your ancestors here to become slaves for them? Did you celebrate Juneteenth because the whites are championing that day as though there is some meaning to it for us because if you are, then you are so stupid that you could actually be made to believe that shit don’t stink.

As long as the whites are telling you to ‘celebrate’ some bullshit, why…there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Black History Month…well, there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day…why there you go. Those days have no meaning for us. Those days are the whites’ way of saying, “Look, I’ve given you much to celebrate. Now go out and buy shit and shut the hell up because that is all that we owe you. Fuck reparations. You’ll get a few days in which to celebrate what you think are freedoms.” And you know what, most of us do just that. You accept so little and will rejoice over a turd handed to you, especially if you are being told that that turd has special significance to you.

Whites are flaming liars, thieves, criminals and murderers; that’s what they’ve always been and that’s what they always will be. You cannot expect whites to do shit that would make a gnat’s ass worth of real difference in your life. They will talk shit to you and hope that you continue to buy it and eat it and you do and so why would they feel pressured to actually do anything of substance; anything of meaning? They wouldn’t.

When you celebrated Juneteenth, did it put any money into your pocket? Did it give you health insurance? Did it cure your diabetes since you have diabetes because of poor diet because you work minimum wage jobs and cannot afford the proper foods with nutrients needed for a healthy body? Did it move you out of a crime infested neighborhood that is wracked with gang violence? Did it close down the liquor store in your neighborhood owned by a foreigner brought over here for the express purpose of further reducing your time spent on this planet above ground? Did celebrating Juneteenth get the bank to approve a home loan for you? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you approved for an apartment in a nice section of town? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you into college? What was the purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth? There was none and the whites know this. The purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth was all for the whites. It had absolutely nothing to do with you since the whites know that whatever bone they toss you, you will run with it, be thankful for it and don’t question why the whites are hyping up some piece of shit ‘day of emancipation’ that never took place, because make no mistake, we are still slaves. We are still slaves in every way.

Look around you. What group in this country is in the worst possible condition? The group that was hellbent on celebrating Juneteenth, that’s who. What the fuck do you have to celebrate? American descendants of slavery are the poster children for homelessness, income inequality, mass incarceration, abject hunger, childhood poverty, high school drop-out rates out of the ballpark, inadequate or no health care, high mortality rates for Black women, babies and children and for both Black men and women, high mortality rates from being murdered by cops. And statistically speaking, we are at the bottom, economically and so disadvantaged, it has been stated that Black household wealth stands at $7.00. We have no real and true wealth; no tangible and intangible assets.

But that was not always the case. Whites destroyed everything we ever built for ourselves, from our homes to our institutions to our movements and so why do you think that they have no problem with us ‘celebrating’ Juneteenth, Black History Month and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day? It is because that is ALL we are to have. And for most of you, that seems to be enough!

And yet, when the protests were raging, all we heard from the whites and from the Black misleaders was, “Look! They are burning down their own neighborhoods!” What fucking neighborhoods do we own? Black people don’t own shit! The lone Black barbershop on the corner is nothing to screech about because, HELL! In Baltimore, MD, Black people have taken to doing curbside barbering. Those goddamn foreigners that the whites have over here on expired visas own that shit that was burned to the ground. If you look at the news out of Minneapolis, there was some Somali man standing there talking about how he owned this and that and was going to help the burned out community. SERIOUSLY??!! How did his tree climbing ass, crawl down from a tree in Somalia, fly the fuck over here and own some damn businesses when Black people, who were born here and are descendants of slaves, have to operate a ‘curbside’ barbershop and yet the whites and the Black misleaders want to exclaim that we are burning down our own damn businesses? What businesses? Yeah! Go do your research and get back to me on that. American descendants of slavery are doing so poorly because it is by design. Whites know why! And they intend on keeping that status quo the same for why else is every other group that comes over here, given every advantage in the world to build up shit, while our shit gets torn down by the whites who spy on us, constantly? They spy on us to make sure that we don’t get any ideas that we are ever going to get ahead because they make damn sure that they nip that shit in the bud before it can even get off the goddamn ground.

But we can happily celebrate Juneteenth because it does NOTHING for us! It is not supposed to, but we are satisfied because Amerikkka, this fucking year, celebrated Juneteenth with us. Ain’t that some shit??!! Indeed, it was!

I Stand Accused!

So, because I put the truth out here and back the truth up with briefcases of receipts, I am perceived as the problem. I have been taken behind the woodshed and been given a piece of a Black man’s mind, by way of email.

Fri 6/19/2020 3:10 PM
From: The Stormy Poet
To: Shelby Courtland
Shelby,
I hope this afternoon bids you well.
I wanted to speak with you privately about something.  I’ve noticed the past couple of posts you made were about black men not caring about black women.
I wanted to ask, do you consider brother like myself, who put it all on the line to combat and fight against systematic white supremacy, in that category?  Your pieces seem to make a sweeping assessment, based on coons and sell-outs that have made it their life’s mission to chase interracial sex over the survival of their people.
I only ask because I have great respect for you and your point-of-view.
I didn’t want to bring this up in your comment section because I know white people follow you–as they do me–and the get off on black male bashing as a form of porn, so I just wanted to pull you to the side and address you in a private setting.
Looking forward to hearing from you, sister.
Much Respect,

 

So consider me to have been “pulled to the side” and “told off” for “black male bashing.”

 

First of all, the last few blogs of mine have contained what? Lies? Nawww, not a one. Those blogs were truth, absolute truth and nothing but the truth. I have often said on this very blog that if the shit ain’t right, I don’t give a damn who it’s about, I’m going to put it out there and lift the lid off of stinking, maggot coated shit because by doing so, exposing shit to the light of day enables everyone to get a whiff and smell the shit for what it is. I am not about to tread lightly in here if shit is fucked up just because someone believes that some nasty, no account whites will wet themselves over what I write. I have spared NO ONE! Whites are not up in here just a smiling and a grinning over what I write about their pasty asses and you know this. Whites ain’t cracking a goddamn smile when they’re all up in here and you know this. I have thrown my own goddamn mama under the bus because she damn well deserved it and so if anybody thinks that I would have a problem calling shit out when I see it, you must have been dropped on your damn head, several times. And if a Black man has a problem with what I write, I am pretty sure ‘Becky’ will soothe your ‘hurt’ feelings. But whether ‘Becky’ does or not, does not negate the truth of what I say. And I am going to keep saying it. I’m not asking you to ‘like’ shit!

Second of all, motherfucker I never contacted you! You posted a comment to my blog asking to have a ‘private’ word with me about something other than my supposed “Black male bashing.”

 

 

The Stormy Poet In reply to Shelby Courtland
Shelby,

Is there an e-mail address you check frequently? I would like to speak to you privately if that is a possibility.

 

 

I used the email address associated with your WordPress account and this is what I originally sent to you.

Dear T.S.P.,
This is the email address that I use. If you have ever sent me anything via this email address and I have not responded, it is because I did not know that it was from you.
Also, I have ordered some equipment to start doing a podcast and it should arrive, at the latest, on Monday because I am tired of just trying to get what needs to be got out, via WordPress. Shit needs saying and doing and I’m going to take this even further. The time is ripe for it.
Sincerely,
Shelby
To which you responded:
Sister,

It is good to hear from you.  I hope your day has been positive and productive thus far, truly.

I just wanted to reach out to you and make sure I had a good e-mail for you just in case you and I needed to get in contact with one another if, heaven forbid, they take down my website or yours. They’ve been doing a lot of censoring to my material as of late.  In any case, I normally operate out of my tsp@TheStormyPoet.com address, but Mail Chimp has been being an ass lately. When I send stuff to people it goes to their spam folder, so this address is my back up.


In any case, I’m thrilled to hear you’re gravitating over to the podcast realm.  I, personally, think WordPress couldn’t handle you lol.  You’re too savage to be contained to just that platform lol, and I mean that in a good way.  
 
I’ve been doing the podcast thing for a minute, and, if you have any questions about anything, feel free to hit me with them.  I’m more than happy to share what I do know, sister.

Whenever you get your platform up and running, I would love to chop it up with you on your program.  I’ve always wanted to verbally share thoughts and ideas with you.  I believe there are a lot of black people out there who would benefit from out dialogue.  

 
That being said, feel free to hit me up about anything.  I’m always down to help any way I can. I’m wishing you continued success, sister, and may your day be filled with positive vibes.  
One Love & One Justice,
And my response:
T.S.P.,
Thank you so much for your offer of assistance, I am going to need some since I will have no idea what I’m doing. It will be, trial and error.
And you are right, I do believe that WordPress will more than likely shut me down. I am quite surprised that I’ve lasted this long on that site. I’m probably not a threat to them since I only have 515 followers. If I had more than that, I would have been shut down, but I am not perceived as a  threat yet. And you know my content will kick anybody’s ass, eventually because I don’t play. If I see some wrong mess, I’m calling it out and I don’t care if it’s about ADOS acting crazy or the white parasites or those nasty, racist Asians; everybody gets thrown under the bus if I see some mess that needs calling out.
It was nice to hear from, especially since it has been awhile. I miss your ‘kick ass’ posts because I damn near re-blogged them all. But I guess since you’ve been working on your podcast, you’ve not had to to do WordPress as well.
I also look forward to, hopefully, working with you on getting the truth out there and waking our folks the hell up!
Don’t be a stranger!
Shelby
Now, as you can see, even in my email to TheStormyPoet, I alluded to the fact that “you know my content will kick anybody’s ass, eventually because I don’t play. If I see some wrong mess, I’m calling it out and I don’t care if it’s about ADOS acting crazy or the white parasites or those nasty, racist Asians; everybody gets thrown under the bus if I see some mess that needs calling out.”
So what the fuck am I doing that needs someone to “pull me to the side” over? This is MY blog. If a motherfucker don’t like what they see on MY goddamn blog, then just like I’ve said many times before, get the fuck to steppin’! In fact, I made a whole blog on this subject and so this is for the motherfuckers in the back row who didn’t hear me the FIRST GODDAMN TIME!

Never Regret What You Stand For!

 

 

Friendships may come and friendships may go.
But at the end of the day, it is all about you.
Because no matter what people say,
to thine own self be true.

Never regret what you stand for.
And if you find yourself, standing alone,
hold your head high and don’t apologize
for staying true to your principles and for what you don’t condone.

You will not be liked by one and all.
And that is not why you are here.
For no one can live your life for you.
And those you thought were friends will somehow disappear.

So who can you turn to
when your friends have feet of clay?
You’re all that you need
to keep those wolves at bay!

To those of you who are second guessing yourself because you feel the need to conform to the dictates of a fucked up society, don’t! If it is against what you stand for, then stand alone, if you have to. You are not here to please everyone and that can never happen anyway. So please yourself. If what you believe in your heart to be true, then go with it and don’t let anyone make you doubt yourself.

So-called friends will come and go. Hell! Even husbands and wives can come and go, so if that doesn’t tell you that nothing is lasting and that you cannot please everyone, not even the ones who have promised to love and honor and cherish you through good and bad times, then I don’t know what to tell you.  And though people may attempt to beat you down and make you feel bad over your beliefs, pay them no heed because at the end of the day, they must answer to their conscience and you must answer to yours.

I know I am not here to please everyone and I don’t even try. There are many who disagree with my stance on different issues and that’s fine but when I know in my heart that something goes against my principles, I’m having none of it.

And if you come up in here with some crazy mess, know this, I am going to shut it down. You don’t live my life and I don’t live yours. So, don’t even go there with me. I am not the one. Now then, I hope we understand each other. If you cannot put up with what you see in here, then by all means, keep it moving. But I am past fed up with some who think that they are going to come all up in here and takeover. Ain’t happening. If you didn’t know, now you know!

Most of you have your own blogs and if you want to argue against my stance so bad, take it up on your own blog. But I am all about ‘Blackness’, not ‘Blackish’, but ‘Blackness’. Everything else is secondary. So take your cross-eyed mess onto your own blog. Don’t bring it up in here. You are not going to turn my blog into a 3-ring circus. I am respectful when I comment on other peoples blogs and when I see something that I disagree with, rather than get bent out-of-shape, I leave it alone, but I am disrespected on my own goddamn blog and it is not going to continue happening. Am I making myself clear? Because if not, there will be some changes going on all up in here; quick, fast and in a damn hurry!

And so for ANYONE who thinks that they are going to “PULL ME TO THE SIDE!!!!” are you fucking serious? You don’t ‘pull me’ NO goddamn where! You better check yourself! Motherfucker, you don’t pay my goddamn bills and so who the fuck do you think you are??!!! I don’t give a shit for your dead ass podcast or your dead ass blog!

So yeah! Here we have YET ANOTHER PIECE OF SHIT BLACK MAN, who is going to “PULL A BLACK WOMAN TO THE SIDE” for stating the goddamn truth! Just because you don’t like the truth, don’t make it any less, the truth! Get the fuck over it! Deal with it or not, but don’t come here with your bullshit because I don’t hide shit. I PUBLICLY state what the hell’s going down. I don’t have to make Black men look bad; you’re doing a FINE ass job of that ALL on your damn own! If you ain’t about shit, that ain’t on me, that shit’s on you motherfuckers! I was NOT put on this planet to cape for you worthless Black assed motherfuckers when you ain’t worth it! And I will continue to expose the shit you shameless no account, worthless, Black assed motherfuckers do! Count on that! You don’t want to fuck with me because I am most definitely NOT the one! If you didn’t know, now you know!

Fuck YOU!
