Have We Broken The Chains Of Slavery?

break the chain

Have we broken the chains of slavery?
And before you answer, “Yes!”
Just take a look around.
Give me your wildest guess.

Our children can’t play in parks.
They are shot for being Black.
Black women are hanged in jail,
and the unemployment office is packed.

The homeless on the street
are there because they are poor.
Gentrification took their homes
and shoved them out the door.

The Blacks in Hollywood
are never recognized.
No gains have been made.
Now, can this be denied?

Try and convince yourself
that we have made progress.
And then take your blinders off
 because Black America is a mess!

Since Black History Month is so goddamn short, I thought I’d get an early start.

Now, I would try and post something on Black History Month each and everyday, but y’all know the story. Since I am Black, then that means that I am more than likely caught up in some legal issues and that is why I will most likely not be able to post each day because it shall be necessary for me to tend to my legal issues. And no, I have not robbed the liquor store, burned down a CVS or mugged an old white lady, I am involved in a civil matter that DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!, quite actually was initiated by the criminal act of a ‘white’ woman. Yeah, I know, who would’ve thought! But be that as it may, let me set the record straight. I don’t give a good goddamn about the fact that the mainstream media portrays Black people as the initiator of crimes far and above that of whites when nothing could be further from the truth. The truth of the matter is that white folks don’t get caught up in the legal system or court system because who controls ‘THE SYSTEM’? Exactly! White filth does! So what white filth is going to charge other white filth with a crime? Just ask Mr. ‘Affluenza’ himself, Ethan Couch.

It was a case that captivated the nation, prompting a discussion about wealth and power: A white teenager from a well-off family killed four people in a Texas suburb in June 2013 while driving drunk. At trial, a judge gave the teenager probation after a witness testified that he had suffered from too much privilege — an affliction the witness called “affluenza.”

But since I have a penchant for digressing and getting sidetracked, February, the shortest month of the year, has been designated as Black History Month. Thank you! Thank you white folks! How very ‘white’ of you to do this for us poor Black folks that you continue to fuck up to this very day but at least I get a month set aside, ‘thanks’ to your thoughtfulness, to showcase the gains that have been made by Blacks in this shithole called, AmeriKKKa. And white folks know that there ain’t gonna be any gains, hence the designation of February as Black History Month!

And yes, the gains are embarrassingly few. So without further ado, I shall get started. As of today, January 30th, 2016, Black people have gained uh…..let me think….uh….hmmmm…oh yes, the right to vote. The right to vote for one bigoted asshole after another and as if that wasn’t bad enough, the whites had us thinking that we were voting for a Black man, Barack Obama and he turned out to be just another worthless ass white motherfucker all got up in Black face.

Now, for gain number two. Hold on, I’m thinking. I got it! I got it! Even though this is not occurring here in AmeriKKKa, the shit in Great Britain spawned the vile shits that sailed to AmeriKKKa and Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, was born in AmeriKKKa. The British are making a TV series about Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando and of course, this will give another out-of-work Black actor, a job playing the role of Michael Jackson. The half-hour comedy “Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon,” centers around a fabled road trip in which Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando tried to get home to Los Angeles from New York after the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Joseph Fiennes’ casting as Michael Jackson in a British TV production, is WHITE!

Stop the goddamn presses! What the fuck!! A white motherfucker is going to play Michael, ‘had an Afro at one point in time’ Jackson???!!!!!

Here ends the ‘gains’ of Blacks in ‘white’ AmeriKKKa! Now let me step outside and spontaneously fucking combust AND have my head blast off into deep goddamn space! If that ain’t beyond the end of enough! Goddamn motherfucking jacked up shit, is what it is! But we gone celebrate Black History Month! Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit!!!!

    • Thank you 1EarthUnited, I think because I moseyed on over to Tubularsock’s blog and I couldn’t post a coherent comment because I was in the midst of spontaneously combusting while at the same time my head was propelled by a rocket type expulsion into deep space. Shit prior to this shit has already taken the goddamn cake and the cake can no longer be seen on the horizon. The ship sailed with the cake onboard, goddamn it!

      But I do thank you for your comment. Who needs fantasy when reality is just so goddamn fantastical?

    • You are also correct Dr. Bramhall and I should not have omitted that BIG, HUGE fact especially since I have droned on and on about the ‘gutting of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by the Supreme Court’. My excuse is that with so much shit being flung, sometimes the barrage of it is just too much to handle and my circuits overload and fry! But I do sincerely appreciate my readers taking up the slack when I slack off.

      Bless your heart! So, in reality, we have made NO gains, but we shall celebrate the fact that we are continuously trod on here despite our numerous marches, protests, weeping and hand wringing.

      Thank you for your comment Dr. Bramhall. It was spot on!
