We Can’t Make America Great Again — From Queen to Queens

Today has been difficult for me. Last night as I watched the midterm election results pour in, the hope and joy I felt of the possible restoration of America as I once knew it was quickly replaced by a deep sadness. I, like many people last night, expected a “blue wave” or the overwhelming election […]

via We Can’t Make America Great Again — From Queen to Queens

 

Every single word is right on point! I could not have said it better if I tried. Even though this stolen nation was never great, this young lady brings home her point.

And I will admit, I didn’t even bother voting. I had too much to do. I have not been blogging lately because I have been out in the trenches taking poor sick people to appointments, to grocery shop, to pick up their children from daycare and the list is endless because so many are living in ‘food deserts’ and public transportation is a joke that isn’t at all funny.

While those of you who were standing in line voting, hoping that whites would get their collective act together and disassociate themselves from who and what they are, there were those of us out there doing what we can with what we have because we know ‘whites’. We don’t want to, but we do. Those of us who are descendants of slaves have been on the receiving end of racism, bigotry, prejudice, hatred and violence since our ancestors were dragged here and only through the advent of technology has the world been made aware of our plight in Amerikkka, not that it’s done us any obvious good, nor will it. We have to help one another. No politician on the local, state or national level is going to do a damn thing about a damn thing besides line their pockets by continuing to sell us out since they are owned by corporations and we ALL know how corporations are treating their ‘workers’.

I have heard that women made inroads in the political field  and the LGBTQ community did likewise. Well now, ain’t that just something. Every other ‘group’ will always make headway but those of us who are descended from slaves, we best sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because a white supremacist’s bullet has our name all over it and the murder of us by them is sanctioned by a government that will never truly be a representative government to us because if we have to be declared ‘citizens’ by amendments to the Constitution, then what does that tell you? I’ll give you a hint. Several prominent politicians and wannabe politicians have made statements in essence saying that “slavery was the best era in Amerikkkan history.” The sad fact of the matter is, what has changed? With three million Black men and women locked up in cages, slavery never went anywhere. It just morphed into the Prison Industrial Complex. Every person who is a descendant of slaves is on lockdown every goddamn day and don’t we ALL fucking know this. We’d better fucking make sure every goddamn light on our vehicles is in functioning order because if not, we are going to be pulled over and nine times out of ten, shot for “failing to comply with orders barked at us by a member of the Klan.”

Who the hell is going to do a damn thing about the school-to-prison pipeline? No member of congress is. We have got to go into our schools and mentor our children. Take those smartphones away from them and put a book into their hands. Who is going to open the prison doors and free our brothers and sisters? No member of congress is. We have got to become lawyers and defend our own in a system set up to send us straight to prison because many of us are too poor to afford a good attorney and so we end up with a public defender. Who in unholy hell thinks that a white parasite paid by the ‘state’ is going to do a damn thing to help a descendant of slaves stay out of jail over some bullshit ass charges? Are we even helping our elderly neighbor get to a doctor’s appointment or asking her if she needs to be taken to the grocery store or to run an errand? There is plenty that we can do. It does not have to be anything big. We don’t need a big, huge church building and a 501c exemption. Churches aren’t the answer. Religion isn’t the answer because if it was, would the shit that’s going down today, be going down if religion is the answer? Hell fucking no! The money that the Reverend, Bishop, Pastor, Rabbi and the like take from the blind, the stupid and the gullible all goes where? You see ANY evidence of church funds helping out the community? Oh, they’ll dole out some expired canned goods, but that’s about it. Why is homelessness so problematic when we have palaces of worship all across this godforsaken country doing fuck all about it? I wish to hell I thought I’d step foot inside one of those palaces of hypocrisy and sit up and listen to dog shit from a pedophile or another hypocrite who is preaching at me about sin and who is, after church service, fooling around on his wife with one or two of the ushers.

Black folks, despair is for those who have no hope. As long as there is someone in need in the ‘Black community’, there is someone who could come to their assistance. Why can’t that ‘someone’ be you? To sit somewhere and moan about the outcome of an election is foolish. You should have known that whatever the outcome, the same problems that existed before the election would continue to exist. Politicians don’t care about us. And you can see that whites are so damn stupid and filled with hatred that even after voting, they have no home to go back to or if they do, they don’t even have dental coverage or adequate health insurance, but that’s fine because according to those fools, ‘white supremacy’ is going to take care of ALL of their issues. Just ask those white folks down in Florida who are still reeling from Hurricane Michael. Many of them are homeless, fucked up and would still vote for Trump if only they could have gotten to a polling place because hate TRUMPS everything, including sickness, homelessness, joblessness and hunger.

So, Black folks, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and realize that if we don’t get our act together, we will never thrive. We should never look to a politician of ANY stripe to help us because since when have they ever??!!! Get real! What you need to do, you won’t do and if you continue down this path, expect despair, hopelessness and death. It need not be this way, but until we understand that looking out for one another is our only hope,  we will continue to be disappointed on ‘Election Day’ and every day thereafter.

Finally, I’ll leave you with a little poem I wrote for Election Day 2016. I titled it:

I Voted!

I voted……..in my sleep.
 Stood in line with the other sheep
as we were prodded, one by one.
Oh I voted, but I voted for none.
Yes, into that voting booth, I went,
made my mind up to some extent.
I threw my ballot on the dirty floor,
said I’d never vote for a war whore.
 And that no bigot would get my vote,
I’d rather drown in a goddamn moat.
The security guards escorted me out,
told me I was crazy, without a doubt.
 But that’s okay because I had my say
on the 6th of November; election day!
Don’t do as I did and vote in your sleep,
head out the door like good little sheep.
Cast your vote for your favorite clown,
and I’ll sit back and watch as you drown
in piles of shit that they fling your way,
because you voted on election day!

So now you can say that you voted FOR the pile of shit that those politicians will heap on your plate. Not me, never that. Not again. I learned my lesson.

 

POISONED MEAT – You may want to read this BEFORE dinner! — The Most Revolutionary Act

Originally posted on National Addiction News: STORY AT-A-GLANCE Salmonella Newport is strongly linked to dairy cows, which are routinely sold for meat when their milk production wanes. One reason for declining milk production, besides age, is subclinical Salmonella infection, especially S. Newport infection October 4, 2018, the world’s largest meatpacker, JBS Tolleson, recalled more than…

via POISONED MEAT – You may want to read this BEFORE dinner! — The Most Revolutionary Act

 

Chances are, you have eaten parts of that cow, shit and all and likely smacked your lips afterwards. But keep looking at the picture. That filet mignon and Porterhouse and T-bone steak is really worth it, isn’t it? Does this cow look THAT good to you because that cow is why there is a steak on your plate. That cow is why there is hamburger between a bun in your hands. You can disregard some things because you are not at the slaughterhouse to see what happens to your ‘meat’ before it reaches the supermarket. But judging from the above picture, can you really believe that the meat you consume is as safe as it can be? And the cow in the above picture was a ‘dairy cow’ before it was too old or too sick to produce milk and so was then slated to be slaughtered and placed on your dinner plate.

The USDA or United States Department of Agriculture has had its budget cut to the bare bones and so no one is inspecting the meat that you are eating and if you think so, call the USDA and tell them that you would like a tour when they are inspecting meat for human consumption, you will be talking to yourself because they will have hung up the phone. And if they were actually inspecting the meat that you eat, why would there be recall after recall making headlines daily? Ground beef is ALWAYS in the news for recalls and many of you probably wonder why you feel ill after having eaten a medium rare steak. It is because no one is inspecting the meat and they expect that you should understand to cook the meat until it is well done in order to destroy any bacteria that your steak may contain. But since you are not doing this, you are getting sick. Have you not realized yet that no one gives a damn about the state of your health? No corporation is concerned if you are sickened by their product because what are you going to do? Sue them? Yeah, good luck with that. And with only about 4 or 5 companies that mass produce our foods, you are out of choices. Either try and buy local or deal with being sick.

We should all have known where we were headed when our food became slated for mass production. Now, we are all walking toxin factories about to drop dead thanks in part to a system that was put in place to allow for convenience, greed, corruption and the destruction of healthy bodies to feed to Big Pharma. Go and ask a ‘chemo therapy’ patient all about their experiences after a treatment. You’ll turn green and this time, it won’t be because you’ve eaten a medium rare steak, What a great setup they’ve got and we are their victims.

“Bon Appétit!”

Lee Daniels new film….PIMP(Interracial Lesbian Propaganda) — Kushite Kingdom

“The film is coming out November 9,2018.  Be sure to NOT support this film!  Do not give these sick bastards one red cent! Let me know your thoughts on propaganda films of this nature.” – Kushite Prince

Looks like Director Lee Daniels is at it again. Hollywood’s favorite black homosexual director is back with a new film. The man who made black servitude look good(The Butler) and made black degeneracy look artsy(Precious,Empire). He also has a show called Star on FOX. A show that promotes homosexuals,interracial sex, transgenders and cross-dressers. I’ve watched […]

MY take!

Okay, so let me get this straight, it was ALL good when millions of Black people got up in dashikis and African head wraps and went to see a movie about some fictional kingdom in Africa where dwelled The Black Panther. It was “Wakanda Forever” and deemed a great movie because it had an almost all Black cast, came out in February and eclipsed ALL the true Black heroes who had fought against white supremacy their entire lives and who are either dead or behind bars. But now that some gay/lesbian/transgender shit is hitting the big screen in November, we are to boycott that mess. Selective boycotting, anyone?

Well, I was calling for a boycott back when “Wakanda Forever” starring the Black Panther was about to head to theaters everywhere and I was shouted down because the only descendant of African slaves was portrayed as the most heinous shit walking and so how was that beneficial to see what supposedly represented us get murdered for being ‘allegedly’ too vile to live? Killmonger, or whatever his name, was the only one portrayed as a descendant of slaves and look how vile they made his character out to be. I admit, I did not see the movie. I’ve only read about it to the point where I may as well have watched it because you could not escape everyone and his mother writing reviews of that movie.

But now that sweet little Keke Palmer, all grown up now, who I believe got her start in a Tyler Perry movie has turned gangsta ghetto lesbo pimp queen, we are now to boycott. If we are to make a difference, we need to continuously boycott and not just when something makes an individual pissed off because of a certain content. We cannot sustain a movement and bring about change if we are just going to pick and choose what we boycott. That is not how it works. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Either we boycott ALL the shit or we pay our money and watch ALL the shit.

I have never paid a dime to see any of this lame shit’s films. Why would I pay good money to watch Forest Whittaker ask white men if he can remove their damn jacket in “The Butler?” I have never tuned into “Empire” and I hear that’s loaded with homosexuals carrying on with that sickening behavior and I’m damn sure as hell not watching “Star” which I’m sure Queen Latifah has no problem starring in since she finally admitted what everyone already knew in that she is as lesbian as a summer’s day is long. All those Hollywood shits are down with that gay mess. They know what time it is. Either get with the program or get out. And I bet people watch shit with Wanda Sykes in it and she’s married to some white French woman and they have a baby. How is that even possible since two women cannot a baby make?

And quite obviously, Black folks are not sick and tired of seeing this gay shit because if they were, these types of shows showcasing that gay mess would not continuously be in our face! As long as Black folks are willing to sell their soul to the white devil for riches and fame, there will be those who have no problem starring in movies and TV shows that embrace homosexuality in all its forms. They ALL need to be boycotted, but we won’t do it. Apparently, too many like what they see. But you had damn well better believe that that ain’t me.

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell Calls to Cut Social Security, Medicare

 

Actually by doing this, McConnell is engaging in great strategy right before the Midterm elections. You see, by calling for cuts to Social Security and Medicare, this is sure to get the baby boomers in an uproar which will likely lead them to head to the polls in record numbers to vote for Democrats, which will then give the Democrats control of the House. This will in turn aid the Republicans by the time 2020 gets here and Donald Trump is up for re-election because then McConnell and his GOP cronies and Donald Trump can say that they got not a goddamn thing accomplished because Democrats dug their heels in and refused to pass any legislation. That is excellent strategy because why else would you stand up and loudly proclaim your intent to cut Social Security and Medicare a mere two weeks before the Midterms? You wouldn’t unless you wanted the opposite party in control of the House so that then you could claim that the Democratic party was holding up Donald Trump and the GOP from making any headway in passing bills because otherwise, this would be considered, “political suicide.” And even though baby boomers are dying off, there are still enough of them left to vote and make a difference at the polls because if there is one thing baby boomers will do, and that is to vote if they believe that Social Security and Medicare is being threatened.

After instituting a $1.5 trillion tax cut and signing off on a $675 billion budget for the Department of Defense, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the only way to lower the record-high federal deficit would be to cut entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

“It’s disappointing but it’s not a Republican problem,” McConnell said of the deficit, which grew 17 percent to $779 billion in fiscal year 2018. McConnell explained to Bloomberg that “it’s a bipartisan problem: Unwillingness to address the real drivers of the debt by doing anything to adjust those programs to the demographics of America in the future.” The deficit has increased 77 percent since McConnell became majority leader in 2015.

The republicans just implemented a $1.5 trillion tax cut for the rich, increased spending on the military which already has a bloated budget and yet, Mitch McConnell is stating that Social Security and Medicare are what is needed to be cut? Talk about outrageous lies, that right there is one hellacious outrageous lie! And to make it seem even worse, Social Security and Medicare are considered ‘entitlements’. Another play on words since who could be more ‘entitled’ than members of Congress who enjoy designer health care and hundreds of thousands of dollars in the form of a salary FOR LIFE for doing fuck all? You see Mitch McConnell can destroy Social Security and Medicare because he knows that he will never NEED to make use of those programs of which millions of Americans pay into their entire working lives. So how can Social Security and Medicare be considered an ‘entitlement’ by ANY stretch of the imagination when people are paying into both programs? It cannot. But just as ‘liberal’ has been declared, a ‘dirty’ word, so has Social Security and Medicare been given designations as ‘entitlements’ to make people feel ashamed when they apply for the very programs that exist because they worked and put their hard earned money into. Republicans are shameless reptiles when they can attempt to reduce workers into shameful slogs to be used for their agenda and that agenda in this case being that they intend to cause a “Blue Wave” during the Midterms so that they can indeed, point fingers at the Democrats and call them, “OBSTRUCTIONISTS!” This same, tired old playbook never grows old. They just expect the American people to continue to be bamboozled by their shenanigans. And if we continue to fall for this GOP dog and pony show, then we are indeed, fools.

Both parties have tried their damned best to cut Social Security and Medicare for years but since the republicans are now at the helm and people are getting frustrated with “flaming orange 45’s antics,” it is time to up the ante and mix the shit up, thereby allowing for a “Blue Wave” to take the pressure off Trump and the GOP. They know their shit is raggedy and so they are attempting damage control by galvanizing the baby boomers to give seats to the Democrats. Watch what happens. If the Democrats take the House, which is why Mitch McConnell is calling for cuts to Social Security and Medicare, then the GOP is going to jump up and down in political advertisements come 2020 and exclaim that because the Democrats refused to engage in bipartisanship, nothing was accomplished and so vote a straight republican ticket in 2020. And if that happens, you can best believe that we ALL will be sitting out on the streets, dripping typhus and hookworm, which is already making the rounds in homeless encampments and in areas that are so severely poverty stricken to the point, they are likened to a third world country, which is exactly what the politicians in Washington have in store for ALL of U.S. Don’t believe it? Then bookmark this post and if this is all put in motion, try and find a Wi-Fi signal and pull this page back up in 2020 and I will make a believer out of you.

People, don’t fall for the okie doke AGAIN. Don’t play the fool for these politicians who think of you as less than bugs to be squashed on the sidewalk. They don’t care about any of us and that includes white, Black, middle class, poor, homeless; it makes no difference. Left to them, we shall ALL end up the same way; homeless, sick, broke and dead! America is being destroyed by America’s politicians. We don’t need an overfunded military because no outside force is seeking to destroy America. America is being attacked from within. It is an ‘inside job’. America’s politicians are out to feather their nests at the expense of ours. They are corporate-owned and corporate controlled. They fill you with fear about some shadowy bogeyman in Afghanistan or somewhere when in reality, those people just want Americans out of their country. We would not stand for usurpers from another country to come here and take over and so why should they? Those people had nothing to do with your 9/11. Fear mongering is a strategy both political parties have engaged in because it works. They control us by telling us who our enemy is when we have no greater enemy than worthless, corrupt, criminal politicians and that is why they are busy pointing the finger at others, to get the focus off what they are doing to us all. This November, tell them to shove it up their ass! You are not falling for their lies and that Social Security and Medicare are not the problem, are not the reason there is a huge budget deficit and that no, those programs are not ‘entitlements’. They are there for you because you paid for them. Those ‘entitled’ asses in congress need to get voted the fuck out. Those are the ‘entitled’ assholes! Why do you  think they are called, “career politicians?” There should be no such thing since ‘term limits’ should apply to ALL members of Congress. Wake up and vote that shit out!

Trojan Pam-Concealed Weapons are for white people — Kushite Kingdom

 

This is a great video featuring the late great Trojan Pam(Pamela Evans). She explains how concealed weapons are designed to help black people. If anything it’s designed to get more black people killed! Check out the video and let me know your thoughts.

via Trojan Pam-Concealed Weapons are for white people — Kushite Kingdom

 

Bring your white ass to MY neck of the woods and step out of line and I will show you quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry the fucking concealed gun I carry because goddamn it, I was born in the south and we were taught how to shoot a gun damn near before we could walk.

Pamela Evans is absolutely right in that whites put conceal and carry laws on the books especially for them because they are making damn sure that we don’t have the ability to do so since we don’t qualify. In my state, if you’ve been in prison, stalked anyone or been inside a mental health facility, you cannot obtain a conceal and carry permit and so that right there is hindering millions of Black people from legally carrying a concealed weapon.

The psychiatric field is making damn sure that Black people are railroaded into psych wards all over the damn place and we ALL know who is sitting up in prison. And Black people can be arrested for selling bottled water on the streets and so how quick do you think whitey scared ass is going to have us up on some charges of ‘stalking’ when we are merely walking down the goddamn street? Fucking quicker than I can blink and you goddamn well know it!

Those scared shitless ass motherfucking whites would hide underneath their mama’s bed but for the fact that they have given themselves THE RIGHT to carry concealed weapons. If they were not somewhere doing dirt to others ALL the goddamn time, those scared shitless deviants need not fear people, but they know what they have done and they are scared that those whom they done their goddamn dirt to will reciprocate in kind. Black people have never been as deranged, immoral, inhuman, depraved and bloodthirsty as whites will ALWAYS be. You white motherfuckers have no one to blame for walking around being a pansy-pants snot-nosed piece of scared ass shit but yourselves. Go ahead! Carry your fucking guns. They are not going to save your damn worthless pasty ass from what’s to come!

And newsfuckingflash, it ain’t us you depraved parasites got to worry about. You’re committing suicide at record numbers and when your shit hits rock bottom after you lose your damn job, you’re committing murder/suicide and your fucking fucked up in the head offspring are going on shooting rampages fucking your ass up and they will continue because they’ve got your parasitic sludge flowing through their veins. You are nothing more than bloodless, pathological pieces of shit and yet you get to tell others that they are mentally ill? Get the fuck outta here with that blatant, outrageous bullshit! Fucking suck it all you filthy white bastards!

 

A Tale of Two AmeriKKKas

Alexandra Valoras, who committed suicide and residents of Baltimore, MD holding a candlelight vigil for a homicide victim.
A Tale of Two Amerikkkas

 

A tale of two Amerikkkas is about an Amerikkka where one group is just too ‘white privileged’ to want to live while the other Amerikkka is just too destitute, poverty-stricken and saturated with guns and drugs to be able to live. First, we shall start with the ‘white privileged’ group.

White Parents blindsided by daughter’s suicide hope her story helps save others

The home video will look so familiar to so many parents: a sweet little girl singing and dancing her way to her teen years, recognized for achievements outside the home and thoroughly cherished inside it.

But the full story of Alexandra Valoras’ life is more terrifying than familiar. Just weeks after a family ski vacation, the 17-year-old high school junior, straight-A student, class officer and robotics whiz made her bed, tidied her room and walked to a highway overpass in Grafton, Massachusetts. She jumped off the edge.

 

Yes, it was just too much! The pressure of living up to all that she felt was expected of her was just too much for Alexandra Valoras to deal with. She would have been considered a failure if she had ever gone to her parents and told them what she instead, wrote in a journal in that she was just too tired of being their ‘perfect little angel’. “Daddy took me to a concert and I hated it while I had to pretend to love it,” she wrote in her journal. “Just got back from skiing and I hated it.” “Just received another medal for doing something else outstanding.” “Just named ‘honor student of the year’.” “But I am a failure!” “I am lazy!” These are the feelings that poor privileged Alexandra Valoras wrote in her journal that she could not say to her parents and would they have even listened or paid any attention to her words? The words in her journal do not sound as though she felt, “cherished.” But now that she is dead, her parents have finally found her journal, which was in the home the entire time. However, her parents had to find the journal near her body as she lay dead underneath a highway overpass. And Alexandra’s parents are still wondering to this very day, why they had no clue as to what their daughter was going through. So, what? They never heard that it is well within your rights as a parent to know what your child is up to? You are obligated to know what your child is up to. In this day and age of internet bullying, cyber stalking and Craigslist meetups and murders, you’d better sift through your child’s emails, social media accounts and yes, journals and diaries. The day your children have privacy is the day they leave the nest.

Whites are so oblivious to everything around them, including their own family members, that they don’t even know their own children. They are more clued in to other groups whom they hate for whatever reason, than they are to their own family who, like Alexandra Valoras, wrote her true feelings down and her journal,  chronicling her feelings was in her room, waiting to be found, but since her parents simply could not be bothered, she is now dead and they are sitting somewhere wondering, “WHY?” You have only yourselves to blame since you think that giving your children ALL that money and credit cards can buy is what they need and because of this, you will continue to read diaries and journals that showcase your shockingly appalling lack of awareness of what is going on in your own homes. While you think your children’s smiles speak volumes on their mental well-being, you will continue to find your children lying underneath an overpass or hanging from the rafters while you are busy on the phone with your ski instructor making plans for your next ski vacation.

Now the Valoras claim they are on a mission to stop this from happening to other ‘white’ parents who just give their children everything that money and credit cards can buy, but little else. Your country clubs and golf courses and spa retreats come first. When do you have the time to even wonder what your children are doing when you’re meeting Rachel for lunch and then you have a hair appointment and then you’ve got to meet your tennis instructor and then you’ve got to go to the gym and then you’ve got to meet with Sarah for cocktails and dinner at an expensive restaurant and by the time you make it back home, your children should be in bed. And you get up the next day and do the same exact shit with different people and yet it is all so pointless because your children are very much aware that you prefer to spend time with anyone else, anywhere else so long as it is not with them, that is until they have managed to get your attention by achieving an honor and then that is when you take them to a concert, to celebrate that achievement. But then it is back to your selfish, self-serving lifestyle that revolves around you while you are sitting back thinking that your children should feel “cherished” simply because ‘why shouldn’t they’ since they have everything money can buy? Oh, you think your kids are okay because they have every device to play with and their rooms are filled to bursting, but what money cannot buy is what your children are missing, namely their parents undivided attention and love, not just parents who only reward them when they are honored for some achievement. They may as well be a trained seal, performing for you for treats.

Since this is September, which has been designated as National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, I guess this story is to showcase the fact that suicide is now the second leading cause of death for ‘white’ 15 to 24 year olds of both sexes and that ‘white’ teen suicide is now at a 40-year high for young women Alexandra’s age. There is also a list of warning signs you are to look out for.

A person thinking about or threatening suicide or seeking a way to kill themself

Increased substance abuse Feelings of purposelessness, anxiety, being trapped, or hopeless

Social isolation and withdrawing from people and activities

Expressing unusual anger, recklessness, or mood changes

But I don’t believe that this was the case with Alexandra Valoras since she did not display her feelings of purposelessness and hopelessness. She wrote them down. She wanted her parents to find her journal, but instead, she had to leave it where she committed suicide because she knew they’d not be able to overlook it then.

So, white folks! Instead of turning your anger and hatred towards others, maybe you should figure out what is going on in your own households and focus your attention there. It would seem to be the logical thing to do or you will continue to find your children at the bottom of an overpass after having jumped and the journal chronicling their journey to that overpass, lying somewhere nearby.

Next we come to the ‘other Amerikkka where suicide would be understood as a way out, however, homicides are the way out for far too many. But who cares about these statistics? 

‘Neighborhoods are crying out’: Baltimore has highest homicide rate of U.S. big cities

Baltimore had the worst homicide rate among the nation’s 50 largest cities last year and the second-highest violent crime rate overall, according to new data from the FBI.

The grim news was the latest reminder of the sustained cycle of violence that has gripped the city since 2015, when the annual number of homicides soared above 300 for three consecutive years after the unrest that followed Freddie Gray’s death from injuries suffered in police custody.

Baltimore Maryland is a city I know too much about after having lived there for several years in the mid 90s and again recently. I posted a blog a few years back detailing the outrageous horrifying statistics of a city mired in poverty, drug addiction, prostitution, gang violence, drug turf wars and hundreds of homicides a year. I even pointed out the fact that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is headquartered on Mt. Hope Drive in Baltimore, MD and yet, there is nothing that that organization has done to rein in the horrific statistics of a majority Black city. Far too many of Baltimore’s children are the victims of poverty and drug addicted single moms who don’t even know who their father is and if they do, he is more than likely in prison or has been murdered. These children are dropping out of school in record numbers and are being groomed for the ‘school-to-prison pipeline’.

In a post titled, “Sirens Are Our Lullabies,” I penned a poem about how Baltimore’s citizens, especially her children, are not gently falling asleep to the tune of softly whispered lullabies from their parent’s lips, but by the screams of sirens nearby that could only mean one thing, another homicide.

Did you hear that?’: Amid Baltimore’s surge in killings, a faint cry in a locked car

BALTIMORE — No one saw the baby.

She sat in a gold-hued car with tinted black windows as her 26-year-old father lay on the ground outside, dying.

All eyes were on him, another fallen body in a city increasingly defined by them.

In portions of Baltimore, the strobe lights of police cars is as much a part of the landscape as boarded-up homes. But the pace of the killings this year has been stunning as the city struggles to recover from rioting in 2015. As of Friday, 124 people had been slain, including five on a recent day, making Baltimore’s homicide rate one of the highest in the country. It is more than triple Washington’s rate and higher than the homicide rates in New Orleans and Chicago, two places that have become national symbols of gun violence.

A crying baby, sitting in her car seat, oblivious to the fact that her father lay dying mere feet away, unaware of the poverty and unbelievable hardships that she is going to have to face, if she does not get shot dead during some drive-by shooting first. Unlike Alexandra Valoras, who killed herself even as she had everything money and credit cards could buy and two parents in the household who took her on ski vacations and to concerts that she really didn’t want to go to, this little Black baby girl, sitting in her daddy’s car, will never know her father, much less will she have the opportunity to go on a ski vacation or even to a concert. It is highly likely that she will never know the area beyond the derelict neighborhood she and her mother will ‘live’ in. It is also highly likely that she will be raised by her grandmother, if she is still alive, because many young adults in Baltimore are strung out on drugs, either illegal or government sanctioned and grandmothers are left to raise their grandchildren, when they can. Otherwise, they end up in foster care.

Heroin and crack have decimated many cities that house a majority of Black residents and elected officials just shake their heads and bemoan the paucity of good paying jobs that could take the place of drug dealing, thus cutting down on the poverty and homicide rates. They look to the police to incarcerate the problem away. They look to ex-cons to patrol neighborhoods in order to instill a “You don’t want to end up like me,” message into the residents mired in hopelessness, poverty, violence and despair. But is any of this working? Hell no!

Whites, who are probably like Alexandra Valoras parents watch the evening news and exclaim over the violence of “those” people and say to themselves, “At least OUR children don’t have to rub shoulders with those people,” not even realizing that they have more in common with “those” people than they think. The same hopelessness and despair that drove Alexandra Valoras to commit suicide exists in the children of those who live in cities like Baltimore, MD. The only difference is they know that they will more than likely be murdered by simply walking to the store than be a victim of suicide. Commit suicide? What for? It is only a matter of time before they too, will become, a homicide statistic.

So, I say to Alexandra Valoras’ parents, while you are out parading around town, spreading the news that other parents in your shoes should take more interest in what their children are doing, take a moment and stop and consider that what happened to your daughter is in some way, karma, thanks in part to your lack of empathy, compassion and sympathy for those who are born into poverty, hopelessness and despair; the outcasts, those who have been abandoned deliberately by whites who are responsible for why a little Black girl in Baltimore City is in a car seat, mere feet away from her dying father who you think died at the hands of another Black man, but in reality, he is dead because guns and drugs were put into the hands of his killer by those who look like you since Black people do not own the planes and ships to deposit drugs on America’s shores nor do Black people manufacture guns or are members of the NRA that tout lax gun laws to politicians, daily. Those who look like you do. But there you sit in your insulated world thinking that all is right within it, that is until you find your daughter, lying dead underneath an overpass with the pain of having lived with you scribbled in a journal near her dead body. If she finds life intolerable living with you, how do you think it is for us? Something I would think on if I were you because what comes around, as you can plainly see, goes around.

The Brouhaha Over Colin Kaepernick’s Nike Ad

 

Trump’s ‘Deplorables’ as Hillary Clinton so aptly named them, are indeed, ‘deplorable’.

Nike shoes burned, defaced over Colin Kaepernick’s ‘Just Do It’ ad

Kaepernick’s attorney Mark Geragos announced the endorsement deal on Twitter, calling Kaepernick an “All American Icon.” Kaepernick also posted a Nike ad featuring his face and wrote: “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything. (Hashtag) JustDoIt”

About 33 percent of Americans say they are more likely to view a brand favorably if it supports the right for protesters to kneel during the anthem, but they’re outweighed by the 38 percent who said they’re less likely to view the brand in a positive light.

Yet those views can depend on demographics, with the research company finding that Trump voters are most likely to object to brands who support anthem-kneelers. About seven out of 10 Trump voters said they’d spend less money with a brand that supports the issue.

On the other hand, Nike may not be targeting Trump supporters, given that fashion and athletic brands tend to target younger and more diverse demographics.

I worked in corporate strategy at Nike for years. Nike’s most loyal and lucrative core consumer? Black youth. Not the Trump supporter cutting his socks with pruning shears. #NikeBoycott? The company is laughing its way to the bank.

Now I generally don’t go in for brand names, but even I am going to purchase a Nike t-shirt even if this is just a publicity stunt, but then I am no Trump supporter who will soon not be able to purchase a can of beans, much less Nike ANYTHING! When Trump finishes with his base, they will be lucky to have any teeth left in which to bite into an apple, not that they will be able to afford an apple or an Apple product, much less a Nike product. They will not have food stamps, medical coverage or a roof over their heads. All they will have is Trump’s assurance that they are being patriotic because of their blatant racism, prejudice, bigotry and hatred aimed at people who happen to have melanin in their skin. But he will not care when they must find a box and locate a bridge underneath which they must then place said box. Someone, hand them an empty Nike box because maybe then, they can keep at least one sock-less foot dry.

It is quite laughable that a draft-dodging, racist misogynist like Donald Trump, can stand somewhere and drone on and on about what patriotism means and who is disrespecting U.S. military troops when he received five deferments from the military draft during the Vietnam War, including one medical exemption for a problem with his heels. He certainly does not seem to have a problem with his heels now seeing as it has been estimated that Trump has spent 25% of his time in office playing golf and the other 75% on Twitter tweeting about who is badmouthing him and disrespecting him by not taking his tantrums seriously thanks in part to a self-inflated ego.

Trump’s supporters’ fashion statements all tend to lean to confederate flags, sheets, hoods and guns and so Nike should do well since Nike does not produce what Trump’s supporters need in order to promote racism, hatred, bigotry and prejudice. And as this brouhaha blows over, any decrease in value of Nike stock, will only be temporary and the company is very much aware of this and so there is no nail-biting taking place at Nike. Nike, in fact, expected these events.

Kaepernick’s football career may very well be over, but since his Nike endorsement isn’t, he will not have to worry about sitting underneath a bridge next to a Trump supporter who will be underneath a bridge living in a box or a tent thanks to Trump’s economic policies that have negatively impacted his base while at the same time, handed billions to his corporate cronies. Since racism, bigotry and prejudice trump’s logic and reality in the eyes of Trump’s supporters, the hardships that are coming down the pike they will inevitably face will hit them hard. But maybe they will fall softly, cushioned as they are by the cloud of racism, bigotry and prejudice that surrounds them. I think they shall regret burning their Nike sneakers since “The Farmer’s Almanac” predicts a most seriously cold winter and the Nike corporate brand will continue to be sported by golf pros, NFL pros, NBA pros and of course, everyday, average people like myself.

And for those people who suggest that Trump’s supporters are just fighting back against the status quo; those who have ignored them for decades and refused to listen to their pleas for good paying jobs to feed their families and so forth and so on, other groups are faring much worse, but they have yet to take to the streets in an attempt to terrorize innocent people. Have the Indians, indigenous to this land acted in the manner of Trump’s supporters? Indeed, they have not and yet their plight is a millions times worse than the poorest Trump supporter’s. And what about the poor Black children who are living in squalor in projects or in bedbug ridden homeless shelters? Their parents have not taken to the streets in an attempt to terrorize others. I get seriously tired of excuses being made for people who support Trump because their support of him is based solely on the fact that he emboldens them to act out on their belief that they are ‘white supremacists’. People who are down and out and who wish to fight back against those who they think made them so, would not incorporate racism, hatred and bigotry while doing so, they would include everyone who is also down and out thanks to the very same ‘elites’ who are responsible for the massive wealth inequality we are experiencing. There is no group that is going to be left out of the next Depression, looming over the horizon.

Burning and defacing products is not going to bring lost jobs back. Hating people because of the color of their skin is not going to bring jobs back. Hailing Donald Trump as your savior will not make him your savior because the only thing Trump is out to save is his status in the corporate world and that of his cronies and Trump supporters, you are not in that world and you never will be. Trump could give a rat’s ass about you and your families, but because you are blind to everything beyond your feral racism, prejudice and hatred, you cannot see what is right before your very eyes, but one thing you will do and that is to feel the cold when it bites your ass because no matter how hot it is right now, winter IS coming and so are more budget cuts to social programs that would have helped your racist ass!

Oh, So Now, The Mainstream Media Wants To Talk About The Fact That Monsanto’s Roundup Is In The Food Our Children Eat?

That bowl of Cheerios is killing you and your children. You are eating a bowl filled with a cancer causing carcinogen known as ‘glyphosate’, found in Roundup, a weed killer manufactured by Monsanto-Bayer. The same company that brought Agent Orange to our troops in Vietnam and white phosphorous to Iraq that produces deep, thermal burns. It also kills. Everything Monsanto makes, KILLS!

 

 

Thanks to a recent lawsuit against agribusiness giant Monsanto and the fact that Roundup Weed Killer also kills humans and that a jury has awarded $290 million dollars to a man,(Dewayne Johnson), who is dying thanks to Monsanto’s Roundup, the mainstream media is now ready to add its hypocritical voice to those who have been stalwartly battling against Monsanto-Bayer for decades. All of a sudden, on my main sign-in screen, there appears this headline which I have known about for quite some time now, but for some strange reason, the mainstream media is just now acknowledging this well-known fact.

Weed-killing chemical linked to cancer found in some children’s breakfast foods

A new report found glyphosate, a weed-killing chemical that some health authorities link to cancer, in a number of popular breakfast foods and cereals marketed to children. The study by the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) discovered trace amounts of the most widely used herbicide in the country in oats, granolas and snack bars. Thirty-one out of 45 tested products had levels higher than what some scientists consider safe for children.

Recently, some scientists, doctors and activists around the world have worked to keep glyphosate out of crops due to concerns that it is a dangerous carcinogen.

“A new report,” my ass! “Recently,” my ass! Activists and scientists have been saying this over and over for decades and they were completely ignored until it can no longer be ignored because of the fact of a $290 million award in damages that are to be paid to Dewayne Johnson for Monsanto’s product killing him because if you see a picture of him, you cannot help but notice that he is most certainly, ‘dead man walking’. Of course Monsanto is appealing this, but the fact of the matter is this case has set a precedent and now the hundreds of other cases can go forward. And with Monsanto-Bayer continuously shelling out millions in attorney fees, that will put a dent in the bottom line. In fact, its stock is already taking a beating. However, stock in other companies need to take a beating as well.

But what is extremely sad is the fact that the mainstream media willfully ignored scientific proof that a carcinogen was in the foods we feed our children and only because it could no longer be ignored, mainstream media is now trying to divert attention away from the fact that the truth about glyphosate has been known for several decades and the mainstream media absolutely refused to report on these significant findings because one corporation is not going to throw another one under the bus. They’d rather throw our children under the bus and they have. Another even sadder fact is that the companies whose products contain glyphosate are suggesting that even though they know and have known about the fact that glyphosate is in their products, they are standing behind their products by basically stating that this carcinogenic that is found in their products is so minuscule that it could not have an adverse effect on our children’s health,  or so says the EPA.

“In a statement Quaker said: “We proudly stand by the safety and quality of our Quaker products. Any levels of glyphosate that may remain are significantly below any limits of the safety standards set by the EPA and the European Commission as safe for human consumption.”

Who the fuck do they think they are at Quaker? They don’t get to say what is a safe amount of a cancer-causing chemical that our children can consume. Those arrogant and conceited, unconcerned assholes should also go bankrupt from a massive boycott without end. Any mother or father who will give their children any Quaker product after that statement should be jailed for assisting in the murder of their child. And if that is not bad enough, this is what the maker’s of Cheerios had to say:

“General Mills told CBS News: “Our products are safe and without question they meet regulatory safety levels. The EPA has researched this issue and has set rules that we follow.”

Seriously? General Mills is going to quote the EPA which we all know is about as effective as it would be if we took a teaspoon full of water and used it to douse one of the California wildfires. General Mills doesn’t give shit for the safety, health and well being of our children. Boycott the company and run the assholes out of business. If you care about your child and what he/she eats, that is exactly what you would do. Any company that displays such a blatant disregard for our children’s health, does not deserve one thin dime from us. Close them down! The EPA is less than useless and is in fact, in bed with Monsanto-Bayer just as it is in bed with every other corporation that is fouling up the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat for if not, why hasn’t the EPA said a damn thing against hydraulic fracturing also known as ‘fracking’? Because it is in bed with corporations, that’s why.

I don’t give a damn how long Quaker Oats has been in business. I don’t give a damn about some Cheerios being touted as ‘heart healthy’. If the companies that mass produce a product loaded with a carcinogen can willfully ignore the dangers of their product, what else would they do or hide? Boycott ALL corporations that insist that any amount of a cancer causing product in their food is acceptable for our children to eat! For once, stand up and hit back against those that are hellbent on killing our children and ourselves all for profit because that IS what it ALL boils down to, profit over people; shareholder dividend checks over humanity, CEO bonus checks over our health and safety!

Our children deserve a fighting chance and they will not get that chance when they are fighting for their very lives over a cancer diagnosis simply because we chose to do nothing even though we had the information right in front of us that proves those corporations knew their products contain a known carcinogen and yet, placed them on the supermarket shelves for us to purchase and feed to our children. Now, how sick and twisted is that?

And lastly, do you want YOUR children to walk around looking like this? Because this is exactly what they are going to look like if you continue to feed them Quaker Oats products and General Mills products because the same carcinogen that is killing THIS man is in the breakfast foods produced by Quaker Oats and General Mills!

May you live long enough to spend every single dime of the money Monsanto owes you for killing you!

Take a good long look at him! This is what Quaker and General Mills and Monsanto-Bayer has in store for your children and you!

This Is Exactly Why I Got The Fuck Out Of Baltimore!!!! This Shit Goes Down Every Single Day!!

As many of you know, a couple of years ago, I left the Midwest and headed for Baltimore, Maryland. It was my hope to become a part of the solution as opposed to continuing to do nothing about the plight of Black people who have basically been abandoned since anything that counts towards achievements is null and void. Black people are being allowed to fail and it is deliberate. Black people are being pushed to fail and there is no greater evidence of that than in Baltimore, Maryland. And when I saw this article and the accompanying video, it just took me back to Baltimore and re-started my PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) from having lived through not even a year in Baltimore.

Baltimore cop on paid leave after viral video shows him beating a man

A Baltimore cop was suspended with pay Saturday after a viral video showed him beating a man to the ground.

In the video, an officer is seen pushing Dashawn McGrier, 26 up against a wall. McGrier appears to push the officer’s hand away. The officer then repeatedly punches McGrier, who does not appear to strike back.

The punches continue until McGrier lands onto rowhouse steps before finally falling to the pavement. The officer then pins McGrier down. A second officer is present but does not appear to partake in the beating.

This ONE time, we cannot blame this shit on white KKKops! And white folks, don’t even start grinning because like I said, “This is only ONE time that we cannot blame this shit on white KKKops! I did not say, EVERY TIME!”

 

However, I will state this, Black cops are no better than white cops and many of them are just as bad and will fuck other Black people up just for the hell of it. I don’t know whether or not it is their intent to try to impress whitey pink ass or for some other reason; maybe they are just filthy ass dirty cops. But know this Black cops, there is not a goddamn thing  that you could do to impress whitey pink ass because he wrote the book on how to be a lying, deceitful, depraved, corrupt, soulless bastard who will turn on your ass in a New York nanosecond. You Black cops mean no more to a white cop than the Black folks that you beat up, kill or arrest because don’t think for a minute that if some shit was to go down between cops, that they wouldn’t shoot your ass and claim some Black suspect did the deed. It has certainly been done many times before. But back to the subject at hand.

The Black cop in the video is beating the shit out of another Black man. The cop even knows he is being taped because you can clearly hear the man who is taping this state that it is being taped. So, what does that tell you? It tells you that cops have been told that they can do whatever they damn well please and only be relieved of duty pending ‘no investigation’, so just sit back and wait for the public flak to die down, while receiving your full pay and then it is back to busting heads for the sheer joy of getting your fucking jollies off. That is how it goes, folks! That is the system. That is the setup.

If I had walked up to someone and beat them down like that, where would I be? Still in jail if I was unable to make bail and we ALL know this. But with cops? It’s a different story. They get to walk around free as a bird while getting paid for beating someone down to the ground and I saw no provocation, but then they don’t need any provocation. They’ve got those badges and a gun and the “I feared for my life” bullshit excuse that gets them off the hook every time!

When I lived in Baltimore for those few short months which seemed like an eternity, I witnessed this type of shit all the time to the point where it sickened me. The Black people in Baltimore are treated worse than animals being led to slaughter.  Healthcare in that city is a joke, but I am SO not laughing. The food is something to die from. Streets exploded sending asbestos into the air. The public transportation system is so badly managed, it is damn near useless. The bus drivers will not even get out of their seat on the public buses to use wheelchair restraints so that wheelchairs don’t rock back and forth. The people in the wheelchairs have to raise an arm to hold onto the strap above the wheelchair to keep their wheelchair from teetering forward or backward. I never saw such shit in my life. People were shot on buses all the time.

Entire neighborhoods are empty and the buildings are boarded up and then there are the neighborhoods whereas three buildings are inhabited and the rest are boarded up. Then there are those neighborhoods where a Korean liquor store and a Chinese take-out is on every corner and the people look like walking zombies.

And don’t even get me started on the Lexington Market area. A white cop walked by me who looked like he couldn’t have been more than 22 and who had horrible looking tattoos all up and down his arms and who was telling another cop that he will pull over every car with a Black person in it that has decals. He then parked his patrol car on the light rail tracks and when the light rail train approached, the guy driving the light rail had to blow the horn several times before this nasty piece of KKKop shit moved his patrol car out of the way. The shit I have seen and heard would curl your toes.

Lexington Market is filled with people who are nodding on methadone or who are swilling beer and liquor from a liquor store that is located inside Lexington Market. How convenient. I saw how the Koreans just stood back, gazing at their Black customers with looks of raw contempt on their faces even as they took their money and used it to feed, house, clothe and send their children to expensive schools and universities while the poor Black residents are being herded to prison or to Johns Hopkins for experimentation because I saw that too. I saw Black people being injected with anti-psychotic drugs. I even saw a Black nurse stand in line to get her injection. I saw a Black woman pleading with a Black receptionist to ask the doctor, “Why after all these months is she still getting injections? They hurt!” I saw not one white person in line for those injections and every single nurse or doctor that came from the back was white. Something is wrong with that. Something is seriously wrong that is going down in Baltimore, MD and in every city that is predominately Black.

I have never considered myself to be a conspiracy theorist, but something is most definitely NOT right. The only thing that I can say to Black folks is this, “Be on your guard at ALL times. Never think that what someone wants to do to you is okay. Ask questions. Know your rights and even if you are in a two-party consent state, tape the motherfuckers. Maryland is a two-party consent state for a reason; the reason being that the entire state is corruption central. You see, one-party consent states allow for you to tape conversations with just your consent. You don’t need the consent of any other party and so this allows for the politicians and the police in Maryland to get away with so much and they do because it is a two-party consent state. They can imprison you for up to 5 years for taping their ass in Maryland. I know, I’ve been there. I’ve lived there and I would never go back, ever! And I include in this blog, many of the reasons why!

The neighborhood I resided in was considered a ‘nice area’ but I am going to post pictures of what my bathroom ceiling looked like for three months and I was paying over a thousand dollars a month. This is what $1,300 a month gets you in Baltimore, MD.

This is right outside my dining area window. I was supposed to sit and eat and watch dogs shit or so I was told by management.

Again, right outside my dining area window.

I would expect all of the above if I was living in this section of Baltimore, Maryland. But I wasn’t.

Where that Korean guy is standing, there used to stand Black people selling food to other Black people but the whites didn’t want that and so they gave the Koreans the heave-ho at the Inner Harbor, raised the rents at Lexington Market, the Black stall keepers had to leave and were replaced by Koreans now selling ‘soul food’ to Black folks.

This is ALL you see at Lexington Market; Korean-run stall after Korean run stall. All selling some type of ‘soul food’ and Asian food to mostly Black customers.

Some of the Korean stall keepers gave me the ‘evil eye’. Most likely because they knew I was pointing out the obvious.

This Korean bitch actually told me to get away from her stall. And Black people actually give those skanks their hard-earned money? For the love of !!!

Black people otherwise known as descendants of slaves, wake the hell up! No one is our friend! Not even many Black people. Know who your enemies are and treat them accordingly and if other Black people are treating you like shit, they are your enemy as well. Believe me, I know how tough it is out there. I am living through this hell as well, so I know what you are going through. But it took me moving all across the country to finally know where I fit and that is back in my hometown. I know this town like no other and I have found where I can do the most good and that is why I know who my friends are and who my enemies are because I know these people like I know no others on this planet.

I have managed to come back to my hometown and start a volunteer agency of driving people to their doctor appointments and to churches to pick up food to keep them through the month and to drive them to the grocery store. We must get back to community involvement because our communities are what we are going to need when the shit really hits the fan. I have found a piece of land that’s dirt cheap and we are going to plant a garden and it is in a neighborhood that really needs some fresh vegetables. You can start small like I am doing and just go from there.

And finally, if where you live right now is kicking your ass, MOVE! Sometimes, you may not be where you want to be, you just might have to go where you NEED to be! Think about it!

Jury orders Monsanto to pay $290M in Roundup trial

About time! Dr. Bramhall, this one is for YOU! I know how much you loathe Monsanto and their products, you loathe them as much as I do!

A San Francisco jury has found in favor of a school groundskeeper dying of cancer whose lawyers argued that a weed killer made by the agribusiness giant Monsanto likely caused his disease.

Dewayne Johnson was awarded nearly $290 million in punitive damages and another $39 million in compensatory damages.

Johnson’s lawsuit against Monsanto was the first case to go to trial in a string of legal complaints alleging the glyphosate-based Roundup herbicide caused non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

I just hope this Mr. Johnson lives long enough to enjoy at least some of his millions because from the looks of him, he is not doing so well. Not long ago, I wrote a piece when this case was first coming to trial.

Monsanto Squares Off With Man Dying of Cancer in Roundup Trial

This poor man’s doctors did not even think he would live long enough to testify in court as to what caused his illness.

Lee Johnson’s doctors didn’t think he’d live long enough to testify in court that exposure to Monsanto Co.’s Roundup weed killer caused his deadly cancer.

But the 46-year-old is now first in line to go to trial against the agrochemical giant among thousands of people across the U.S. who blame its herbicide for their disease.

As groundskeeper for the school district in Benicia, California, about 40 miles east of San Francisco, Johnson mixed and sprayed hundreds of gallons of Roundup. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, and in July, after chemotherapy and other treatment, his oncologist gave him six months to live.

Monsanto is the same company that developed Agent Orange used in Vietnam to destroy forest cover and crops and since the U.S. Government initially denied the fact that Agent Orange caused health problems in U.S. Servicemen in Vietnam, why would Monsanto acknowledge that Roundup, which is also an herbicide, would cause health problems in human, animal and plant life?

Monsanto’s lying slew of paid whores would say that glyphosate is safe. Does anybody believe that Monsanto would hire people to state that a product they are trying to sell is detrimental to human life? Monsanto claims that it has done extensive research on Roundup and that there are no indications that Roundup is harmful to humans. Bullshit! Let my Black ass go work at Monsanto, do some research on Roundup and speak with my supervisor about some findings that are contrary to other ‘scientists’ at Monsanto who have categorically denied any allegations that Roundup causes serious health issues in humans and I would be fired and escorted out so fast, I’d not be able to collect my personal belongings from my desk.

And if Roundup is compatible with humans, why has it been banned in Germany, France and Switzerland, Sri Lanka, Columbia, El Salvador, Russia, The Netherlands, Mexico and several other countries due to its toxic impact? It has been banned because it is deadly to humans.

“Monsanto, pay those poor sick ass people that you caused to sicken in the first damn place! Americans, grow some damn balls and at the very least, place calls to your no-good politicians to do what other countries who care about their citizens have done; banned Monsanto products!”

Lastly, I am just so thankful that the jury saw through Monsanto’s lies and awarded this man $290 million. May the lawsuits and the awards against Monsanto, continue!

May you live long enough to spend every single dime of the money Monsanto owes you for killing you!
