$6.4 Million Dollars

Freddie Gray10

Case closed!

Baltimore officials approved a $6.4 million deal Wednesday to settle all civil claims tied to the death of Freddie Gray.
Gray suffered a fatal spinal injury while he was transported in a Baltimore police van in April.

The settlement does not “represent any judgment” on the guilt or innocence of the six police officers charged in the case, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said. “This settlement represents an opportunity to bring closure to the Gray family, the community and the city.”

Six point four million dollars
and you can’t spend a cent.
After attorney’s fees,
that money’s all but spent.

You are dead and buried.
They put a price on the how you died.
If there had been no witnesses,
again, they would have lied.

It’s cold comfort to you
that your family’s getting paid
by the City of Baltimore,
when in a coffin, you were laid.

And still, nothing’s changed.
The same shit is going down.
We protest another murder
of the Black and of the Brown.

We are all just refugees
 with no place to run.
They’ve got us hemmed in,
down to the last one.

Oh, we march down the street
like they did in sixty-three.
Dr. King and all the others
marched on Washington, DC.

Did it change things for you?
Oh that’s right, you can’t talk.
We’ll print another protest sign
and then we’ll take a walk.

Rest easy, Freddie Gray.
We shall surely make you proud.
Can’t you hear the pleas and cries
erupting from the crowd?

This time, it’s going to work;
this marching thing we do.
There’s no reason why it shouldn’t.
Ain’t that what we said to you?

So, the mayor of Baltimore says that, “It’s closure time!” Ain’t that a bitch? The coffin lid was ‘closed’ on Freddie Gray back in April. He has already gotten his ‘closure’. Can’t get more ‘closure’ than dead ‘closure’. What the fuck else is left? Oh right! The BIG payday. And who is going to get the bulk of the $6.4 million? The attorney and the ‘tax man’. What the Caucasoid giveth, he make sure you give it right back to his ass! Yep! Freddie Gray can rest easy now. Everything is cool. Mayor Rawlings-Blake made a statement and that statement is to all her ‘thugs’, uh…all of her constituents that ‘rioted’ that it is time for ‘closure’. See? Freddie Gray is happily silent over his $6.4 million dollar payout, his family’s lawyer can smile all the way to the bank and the City of Baltimore will get the majority of the payout back in taxes. All’s well that ‘ends’..uh…closures well!

Baltimore takes aim at liquor stores after Freddie Gray riots

baltimore1

Many of the stores do not meet zoning laws and Baltimore needs alternatives, such as grocery stores to improve impoverished neighborhoods, Rawlings-Blake said.

“I do not believe it is appropriate for the city to provide money for these non-conforming liquor stores to rebuild as liquor stores in these locations,” she told a news conference in the Park Heights neighborhood, which city officials say has the highest concentration of liquor stores in Maryland.

Nearly 400 businesses across Baltimore, about 40 of them liquor stores, were damaged or destroyed in rioting after the April 27 funeral of Gray, a 25-year-old black man. He died of spinal cord injuries allegedly suffered while in police custody.

About two dozen liquor outlets are thought to be in residential communities for which they are not properly zoned.

Dr. Leana Wen, Baltimore’s health commissioner, said the African-American majority city of 620,000 people had twice the per-capita number of liquor stores for other cities of the same size.

There is a one-block stretch that has at least four liquor stores.

A large number of businesses damaged in the April unrest were owned by Korean-Americans, who operate many family-run stores and liquor outlets.

Well, well, well, ain’t that some shit! The goddamn shit had to be burned down before the city officials would get off their ass and figure out that these liquor stores were not even zoned for the areas in which they operated. Who the fuck was paying who off to look the other way? So, the city is saying that they had no idea that these liquor stores that HAD TO BE LICENSED did not belong where they were located?????!!!!! Seriously? For real! Get the fuck outta here! So, tell me AGAIN, who are the goddamn thugs? The city officials of Baltimore that were paid under the table to look the other way over zoning laws or the goddamn Korean liquor store owners that were paying the city officials of Baltimore to look the other way while setting up illegal liquor stores on every goddamn corner in Baltimore? Who are the goddamn thugs now?

So, it took the riots after the police murder of Freddie Gray, to figure out that Korean-owned liquor stores were operating without proper zoning permits? Eh? What’s that? You didn’t fucking know? Like hell you didn’t. You fuckers were paid to look the other way until the shit hit the fan. Now, who is gonna start an investigation into the shenanigans of the city officials of Baltimore that are duly sworn in to uphold the laws, regulations and dish out permits to legally operating businesses? Start with mayor coonhead’s office and go on down the goddamn line until you weed out all of the elected thugs that were taking bribes and kickbacks for looking the other way. Yeah! Start with the head coonhead, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. Since her ass was next in line to Sheila Dixon when she had to step down as mayor due to getting herself indicted for embezzlement, fraud and some more shit, then that obviously means that the corruption apple didn’t fall too far from the Baltimore city council tree.

There is a one-block stretch that has at least four liquor stores.

FOUR LIQUOR STORES IN ONE BLOCK? Well ain’t that a bitch! Four goddamn liquor stores in one block; all owned and operated illegally by the Koreans. Hey Koreans!!!! How fucking many of you motherfuckers was living next door to the liquor stores that you opened up, eh? No hands?? Of course not! But you filthy ass motherfuckers bring your fucked up ass over here and promptly open up liquor stores, ILLEGALLY in Black neighborhoods. Why the fuck did you fuckers not open up illegal liquor stores in your own neighborhoods, eh? Why the fuck did you worthless ass bastards not open up liquor stores in white neighborhoods, eh? Because you filthy ass foreigners wouldn’t have that shit in your neighborhoods and the whites in their fucking gated ass communities wouldn’t stand for your shit because they want to see a white face behind the counter when they’re drunk and buying their bourbon and scotch and driving it back down the goddamn road and up a damn tree, but not before sending another poor motherfucker into a ditch.

BALTIMORE HAS TWICE THE PER-CAPITA NUMBER OF LIQUOR STORES FOR OTHER CITIES OF THE SAME SIZE!

Twice!!!! Again, I say, TWICE!!! What’s wrong with that picture? That ain’t a goddamn problem is it? Here we have a majority Black city that has TWICE the per-capita number of liquor stores for other cities the same size and many of the KOREAN-OWNED liquor stores were not even zoned for the neighborhoods that they set up shop in! And again! The city of Baltimore is just figuring this all out, thanks to those people that were called, thugs, for pointing this fact out to all and sundry! So, once AGAIN! Who are the goddamn thugs? Here is a fucking hint! It ain’t the rioters. The goddamn thugs are the elected city officials of Baltimore and the goddamn Koreans that paid the city officials, under the table, to look the other way so that they could continue to do a lucrative illegal business in neighborhoods all across the city of Baltimore and then take their ill-gotten gains and go back to Koreaville, MD. And hell no, I’m fucking NOT politically correct! If your ass is reading this and you are Korean, bring your ass on up in here and crap a goddamn attitude over this! I fucking dare ya!

So, the Koreans ain’t getting no financial aid to re-open their liquor stores. Fucking sob, sob, sob! And if you worthless motherfuckers really think that I am actually crying real tears of sorrow for your filthy ass, then believe this, you’re getting some goddamn federal and state money to re-open your illegal liquor stores! I am glad your shit got fried, toasted and oven roasted! Now suck on that and fucking kiss my ass, but only from a goddamn distance!

And Mayor coonhead Rawlings-Blake! I can only hope that somewhere, some law enforcement agency is digging deep into the shit that I know your coonhead ass is up to. I can only hope that your ass gets thrown in prison and that you get to become Big Bertha’s bitch!

Not All Of Us Have Sold Out!

 

black sellouts and the slave patrol

I cry my brothers and sisters

For those who will never see tomorrow.

Copious tears I shed for my people;

blood red tears, they reflect my sorrow.

 

The sheen of the darkest flesh

will never stand the test of time.

Its glow fades with each day

When the mournful tune of death’s bell will chime.

 

Must I look upon stark evil;

The depraved that have no soul?

And those who look like me

Walk hand in hand with the slave patrol.

 

Not all of us have sold out

nor have we taken Massa’s bone.

We stand proud and shake our head

because selling out, we don’t condone!

I wrote this poem for the piece of shit that posted a picture of the filth that killed Freddie Gray and titled it, “This is racism?! You goddamn right, it is racism! Black people have been separated and pitted against each other since having been dragged the fuck over here, so don’t even fucking act like you don’t know that the house slaves were pitted against the field slaves and this continues to this day.

Some Black folks have the nerve to think that if they act like whites and do the same dirty shit that whites do, that that is somehow going to make them more acceptable to the whites, they will do whatever it takes to attempt to fit in. They are called sell-outs! I don’t give a goddamn about those white motherfuckers sitting there facing the mug shot camera, they’re a given. Black motherfuckers who are sell-outs are just as guilty as the slave patrols they ride around with and who do filthy shit to try and impress whitey white ass. Newsfuckingflash! Not a goddamn thing you sell-out motherfuckers can do can impress whitey white ass cause he knows he will always take the Nobel Prize for Fucking A Black Person’s Ass up. The Nobel Prize committee is giving out awards in new categories. These no-account coon head prize winners have been considered to have made advancements for Massa! Obama’s got his for being Massa’s Top Male Coon Head Sell-out! Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake received her Nobel Prize for being Massa’s Top Female Coon Head Sell-out! Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, both received Nobel Prizes for being Massa’s Willing and Obliging Bootlickers and their prize is busily collecting dust on shelves propped up by Massa’s table scraps thrown to their sell-out ass! Fuck all y’all filthy sell-out motherfuckers!

And to the son-of-a-bitch that said I’m ‘mad, angry and filled with hate’, you goddamn right! I am SO glad that I leave you in no doubt, motherfucker!

 

 

 

 

Baltimore Is The New Detroit!

water

Baltimore is the new Detroit!
Let the water games begin.
The poor will have no water.
And to the elite, another win.

Their rents are high, their income’s low.
But wait, there’s more to come.
Baltimore, you’re the new Detroit
that’s getting burned by elitist scum!

Twenty-five thousand residents
will have no water soon.
The cops are on their ass
and so is Mayor Coon!

Give a shout out for the Guard
when the water goes off for good.
Lock those goddamn folks up now.
Just go through every neighborhood!

Kick ‘em while they’re down.
They’ll never recover from this
Nor will they riot again.
There’ll be no flush for when they piss.

Those of you who are not Black
what if this were happening to you?
Would you take it up the ass
and just decide that it’s your due?

Crackdown on unpaid water bills will involve 600 shutoffs a week

Turn-offs of delinquent water accounts began on Monday and will center on geographic zones. A call for a moratorium until the billing system is audited.

Baltimore officials plan to disconnect water service to about 600 customers a week as they work through a backlog of 25,000 delinquent accounts.

Starting on Monday, meter technicians began turning off accounts that are at least six months in arrears and $250 past due, said Jeffrey Raymond, spokesman for the Department of Public Works. The average overdue bill, he said, is estimated to be between $500 and $600.

The city plans a regimen of 150 turn-offs a day, Monday through Thursday, or 600 accounts a week.

As if what is going on in Baltimore isn’t bad enough, their problems are about to get worse AND how! SIGH! Here we go! Move over Detroit, it’s now Baltimore’s turn!

To the children of Baltimore, I am so very sorry that your parents are poor and that you are unable at the age of 6 to find a job to pay the water bill. But I am quite sure that pretty soon, child labor laws will become a thing of the past and you can uh…work at…well..uh..I’m sorry, never mind. The jobs are gone!

So Bitch! You Wanna Call The Protesters, “Thugs?”

former mayor Sheila Dixon and present mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake

Baltimore’s mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake had this to say about the protesters.

At a news conference on Monday night, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced that a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew would be imposed for a week beginning on Tuesday. “Too many people have spent generations building up this city for it to be destroyed by thugs,” she said.

Oh yes, Mayor Coon Rawlings-Blake, too many Black bodies built up the city of Baltimore but they don’t own it Mayor Coon. It does not belong to the Black people that are tearing it down. And why the fuck shouldn’t they? They fucking built it. If you want it built back up again, let the white motherfuckers do their own dirty work. They don’t mind doing dirty work. They’re fucking fine with killing Black folks. So let them build this shithole back up! Why should we give a damn? We got no stake in this shithole. You fucking coon sell-out! And might I remind you bitch, why you got the job of mayor in the first goddamn place because I don’t see you as Black at all, you coon faced sell-out bitch!

Baltimore Mayor Dixon indicted

Baltimore Mayor Sheila A. Dixon was charged yesterday with 12 counts of felony theft, perjury, fraud and misconduct in office, becoming the city’s first sitting mayor to be criminally indicted.. So, who’s the fucking thug Stephanie Rawlings-Blake? The protesters or the former mayor? Go figure bitch!

The case stems in part from at least $15,348 in gifts Dixon allegedly received from her former boyfriend, prominent city developer Ronald H. Lipscomb, while she was City Council president. She also is accused of using as much as $3,400 in gift cards, some donated to her office for distribution to “needy families,” to purchase Best Buy electronics and other items for herself and her staff.

Lipscomb was not indicted in the Dixon case, but he and City Councilwoman Helen L. Holton were charged this week in a separate $12,500 bribery scheme. Both cases grew out of a nearly three-year probe by the state prosecutor into City Hall corruption.

Baltimore Circuit Court grand jury that expired yesterday returned a 31-page indictment of the mayor.

One theft charge involves misconduct in December 2007, when Dixon was mayor. According to the indictment, a Baltimore housing employee purchased Toys “R” Us gift cards to be distributed to underprivileged children during a holiday event. Dixon allegedly gave one of those gift cards to a member of her staff, and five others were discovered at her West Baltimore house when investigators raided it in June.

Among other accusations: In 2004, 2005 and 2006, Dixon solicited gift cards – to Target, Best Buy, Old Navy and Circuit City – from two developers. She then used some of the cards to purchase a PlayStation2 controller, a PlayStation Portable, a Samsung digital camcorder and other items she either kept or gave to staff members as Christmas presents, the indictment said.

Neither developer is named, and the state prosecutor refers to them as Developer A and Developer B. Weiner identified Developer A as Lipscomb.

Another part of the indictment covers lavish presents from Lipscomb, whom Dixon has said she dated briefly in late 2003 and early 2004. Those gifts include a $2,000 furrier certificate that she used to buy a Persian lamb coat and a “burnt umber mink coat”; $3,200 for a New York City trip that included a stay at the Trump International Hotel; a $1,518 plane ticket from Baltimore to Chicago; and thousands of dollars in cash to pay credit card bills amassed during a swanky Chicago shopping spree.

The indictment also alleges that Lipscomb passed Dixon thousands of dollars of cash – some of which she handed off to a staff member in a wad of 40 $100 bills while being driven around the city. The staff member, who is not named in the indictment, deposited the cash into his personal checking account and paid part of Dixon’s American Express bill, the indictment says.

So AGAIN bitch, how did YOU become mayor?

On January 6, 2010, then-Mayor Sheila Dixon announced, following her conviction for embezzlement, that she would resign from office, effective February 4, 2010. Per the Charter of Baltimore City, in the case of a mayoral vacancy, the sitting city council president shall automatically succeed the vacating mayor and serve the remainder of the term.[7] Consequently, following Dixon’s resignation on February 4, 2010, Rawlings-Blake became mayor of Baltimore City.[9]

Rawlings-Blake went on to seek a full term as mayor, and in November 2011, she was elected to her first full term as mayor, receiving 87 percent of the vote in the general election.[

Why didn’t your bitch ass call the former mayor, a goddamn thug? Her ‘thug’ behavior is why your ‘coon’ ass had to step into Sheila Dixon’s ‘mayoral’ shoes because the former mayor of Baltimore, MD, Sheila Dixon, was a goddamn thief; stealing gift cards that were designated for the needy, not to mention, she was giving her LOVER, lucrative city contracts! But when people go the fuck off for good reason over the senseless murder of a citizen of your city, your coon ass instantly labels them a “thug!” But I guess, in YOUR opinion, Sheila Dixon, former mayor of the city of Baltimore, MD, was a goddamn saint??!!

Bitch, sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up! You ain’t got a goddamn leg to stand on! You and probably other members of the city council that worked under Sheila Dixon are fucking guilty. It just wasn’t proven and now, you want to call other people, thugs? Bitch, you got some goddamn nerve! Shut the fuck up!

Baltimore, do what needs to be done! Don’t listen to that sell-out coon head bitch mayor! Her ass ain’t without a goddamn blemish! And what’s more, she fucking knows it! That bitch is the pot calling the kettle, black!
