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!

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’.

BLM Protests – Powerful or Futile? — MazAntigone

‘It is your duty to fortify your own house, so that you may be a house of refuge in times of organisation… and now is the time to Plot, Plan, Strategise, Organise and Mobilise’ ‘We want to see the system that sets up for systemic racism burnt to the ground’ – Killer Mike Killer Mike […]

via BLM Protests – Powerful or Futile? — MazAntigone

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.

 

“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 wish it were true; that the waves of white supremacy came crashing down in the weeks before summer 2020.

In the contemporary […]

via So We’re At Our Tipping Point, But…What About Tawana Brawley? #saytheirnametoo — Whispers of a Womanist

Also from the article:

The contemporary moment, it’s infiltrated attempts to incite action especially, reflect a systemic attempt to extinguish the Nat Turners and Gavin Longs from rising from the fury of racism, white supremacy. The photos depicting white men as saviors and white women as barricades for black men illuminate the most lethal form of violence I have ever seen. Each Twitter posts delineates blacks as bleeding from a systemic wound that continues to twist a knife in our collective flesh. So while the world sees a global fist against racism, I see the psycho political reality that black lives matter when whites say so.

Let me repeat!

So while the world sees a global fist against racism, I see the psycho political reality that black lives matter when whites say so.

Ain’t that the goddamn truth!

The author of this blog gets it! I have long been saying the same thing, but I’m not polite about it. Everyone expresses themselves in their own individual way and I am past expressing myself as though I’m not at this point, damn near unhinged.

Throughout all of this shit that we have been enduring at the hands of our CAPTORS, we are still falling for their shit! I have been bombarded by pictures of Black protesters hugging killer kops as though that is going to solve the issues we face; as though that has wiped the slate clean and the system of white supremacy no longer exists because the world is ‘collectively hugging’ American descendants of slaves after viewing what we have been subjected to since our ancestors were dragged to these shores. Even African countries have piped up and they need to shut the fuck up since not one African country, nation or ant farm has extended to us, a ‘sincere’ welcome since they ALL know that our ancestors were either stolen and/or sold from Africa. And don’t hand me no bullshit about ‘The Ghana Year of Return” because that was some serious bullshit right there.

Also from the original post.

When have we ever seen such a global reaction to a living black person engender national calls for “justice?” To resume a point I made on an earlier post, why does it seem like that black lives only matter when the black person is dead? Additionally, nothing can bring the lost life back, or reverse the resulting trauma—so even the best case scenario fails to alter the intractable devastation of murder.

Answer the question, whites! Answer the question, WORLD!

Why does it seem like that black lives only matter when the black person is dead?

Why do we only garner ‘calls for justice’ when we are dead? Why are we ignored when we are alive and only after our lives were snuffed out on a city street by a kop with his knee on a Black man’s neck for damn near ten minutes, does that even elicit a fake ass hue and cry from the very whites who are responsible for that shit especially seeing as how their family members are doing that shit to us on a daily basis? When I say DAILY basis, I mean DAILY basis because I have not heard one peep from you soulless, depraved, white monsters over yet another murder of us in the same fashion.

Another Man Who Said ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Died in Custody. An Autopsy Calls It Homicide.

SEATTLE — A black man, Manuel Ellis, 33, who called out “I can’t breathe” before dying in police custody in Tacoma, Wash., was killed as a result of oxygen deprivation and the physical restraint that was used on him, according to details of a medical examiner’s report released on Wednesday.

Mr. Ellis died from respiratory arrest, hypoxia and physical restraint, according to the medical examiner’s office. The report listed methamphetamine intoxication and heart disease as contributing factors.

Oh well, nothing to see here folks, move it along! I mean, according to the medical examiner’s report, the kops did Mr. Ellis a favor since those liars are stating that the man was intoxicated due to meth and had heart disease at the age of 33 and so, there! He was already a ‘dead man’ walking before he was a dead man. Manuel Ellis was a dead man when he was a baby and don’t we ALL fucking know this! The ‘color’ of his skin sealed his fate just as it seals every American descendant of slaves fate in this racist hellhole.

But let us hug our enemies because they have been struck, sudden like, with empathy, compassion, ‘humanity’ and thoughtfulness because the world is screeching about the shocking, brutal display of depraved indifference and premeditated murder of a defenseless Black man as he lay underneath the body of a white male parasite with the white male parasite’s knee pressed into his neck.

So now, white Amerikkka must throw Chauvin to the wolves because he had the audacity to expose each and every single white piece of filthy shit in this shithole for exactly what they are; Derek Chauvins. Not a one of you whites who are screeching and yelling at protests or on blogs or on other platforms that you’ve just now “seen the light,” has a gnat’s ass of worth; you are worthless. I don’t give a damn how much your net worth is, you are worthless, scum sucking, bottom feeding slime! You haven’t seen the light, you’ve not seen a goddamn thing! You just hate for your shit to be broadcast for all the world to see that there is not a damn thing humanitarian or benevolent about your debased, savage, vile, deranged, psychotic, hate-filled pasty asses!

And for Black people to stand somewhere with the likes of you is to court disaster and they look foolish because in less than a month’s time, those same Black folks that are out on the streets, standing shoulder to shoulder with their mortal foe will be doing that same shit again and will be right back to hugging the same kops that would save a dog before they’d save our Black asses!

Look at this shit! It just sickens me!

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!

And the shit continues!

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 !!!!!!

Black folks, are you really that desperate for some fake ass show of support for you from those who hate your guts even as they PRETEND to be mortified over what they ALL seek; which is our death by the most savage and brutal means possible? Why haven’t the whites opened up the prison cell doors and let all of the Black low level drug ‘offenders’ out since that is why the majority of those who look like us are in prisons? But they won’t do that because it is easier for these parasitic slugs to take a knee or hug your desperate Black ass as you seek some semblance of ‘togetherness’ with those debased rejects from who the hell knows where. Whites know their time on this planet is just about up and that is why those creatures have become even more savage, brutal and deadly. And as long as even ONE of those white, monstrous, depraved creatures slithers among us, we are ALL in mortal danger! Why can you not see this? This shit means YOU nothing but harm!

Does this look like kops give a shit about you? Do you think those kops don’t have the full ‘blessings’ of the rest 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!

What about here? Still think the whites give a damn about us? This was at a recent protest for George Floyd. I don’t see any hugging going on between the kop and the Black protester, nor is the kop taking a knee except to take a knee on this Black man to arrest him for peacefully protesting the ‘kneeing’ death of George Floyd.

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???!!!

 

Oftentimes, I seriously despair of Black people ever giving their brains a chance to work, I seriously do!

Do you seriously think those racist goons are running up to this Black nurse who was protesting yet another kop murdering a Black person to hug her? Do you think they were about to ‘take a knee’ in solidarity of her protesting? They arrested her for merely peacefully protesting and yet this woman is somewhere risking her life to save COVID-19 patients. If they were white, they could rot for all I’d care!

 

 

Why does it seem like that black lives only matter when the black person is dead?

 

Black folks, you’d better think long and hard about what the author of the original blog is questioning because it would seem that too many of you have short attention spans. Kops are NOT our friend. We should not be hugging them. We should not consider them to be on our side if they ‘take a damn knee’ all because the entire world is watching this shit go down when the entire world still does NOT give a damn about our plight! All of these displays of fake ass solidarity are just that, displays. They are not genuine. They are not heartfelt and they are NOT REAL! But then, Black people love the illusion of inclusion. Our Black asses can NEVER expect any inclusion in anything dealing with whites! Fuck it! If you want to pretend that ALL has changed since the murder by kop of George Floyd, then by all means, continue the delusion. But don’t say you weren’t warned! Hugging a fucking kop???!!! Are you fucking serious???!!!! Believing that a kop taking a knee’ changes shit???!!! Are you fucking kidding???!!!

Black lives only matter when we are DEAD! And what’s more YOU.ARE.NEXT.POINT.BLANK.PERIOD.

 

 

George Floyd, We Failed You!

George Floyd, We Failed You!

 

George Floyd, we failed you.
You sighed and then went still.
We also failed Tamir Rice,
and all the rest on their list to kill.

Poor Michael Brown lay in the sun,
but his body cooled so fast.
And Trayvon’s ghost still roams the night,
for being Black, he was harassed.

Eric Garner, we failed you too.
What is there left to say?
They choked the life right out of you.
And no one was made to pay.

Oh we get upset and burn some things,
and then we quickly get over the pain.
They call us all “bad thugs,”
but why you are dead, they can’t explain.

They always blame the victim,
for acting out of rage
“Our anger should be doused!”
So says the wise old sage.

Something’s wrong with that old sage,
He does not speak the truth.
A man is dead who did no wrong.
He was buried while in his youth.

Twelve, eighteen and twenty-two,
and on and on it goes.
These are the average ages
of Black bodies laid out in rows.

The funerals never stop.
And the buckets of tears are shed.
The lines are out the door,
but no one says what needs to be said.

Peace will never be ours to know
in this country built by slaves.
When have they ever cared for us,
these primates out of caves?

Never think the day will come
when they’ll stop the killing spree.
The time is now for you to act!
You are a slave, you are not free!

In Minnesota, where protests began this week after the death of Mr. Floyd in Minneapolis police custody Monday, Gov. Tim Walz pleaded with residents to obey an 8 p.m. curfew. Mr. Walz said he was fully mobilizing the state’s National Guard after a night of rioting and violence, leaving open the possibility of requesting federal troops; forces from other states had also been readied to deploy to Minnesota.

“Gov. Tim Walz pleaded with residents to OBEY an 8 p.m. curfew.”

 

Obey! Obey! Obey! That is what the fuck we have been doing for over 400 years in this shithole; obeying the fucking white man! Our ancestors heard that same shit from slave owners. “Slaves obey your masters!” “Til that land!” “Grow that crop!” “Pick that cotton!” “Build the White House!” “Clean my clothes!” “Get on your knees wench!”

The whites even claim that shit in their fucking BUYBULL. “Slaves obey your master!” But who were MADE to be slaves in Amerikkka? Who are the descendants of slaves in Amerikkka? We are! George Floyd was a descendant of slaves in Amerikkka! And look what the fuck they did to him; the same as what they intend to do to us all. You have only to look at the history of this shithole to see that the whites have no intentions of ever letting us forget that we are still SLAVES! George Floyd is not the only Black man to have had to plead for his life to a white piece of shit that was put in a uniform for the express purpose of killing us. Eric Garner was not the first and George Floyd will not be the last.

And yet that piece of filthy, racist, bottom feeding, scum sucking slime that sits his debased, engorged ass inside the White House had the unmitigated gall to call us “THUGS!” when his ass is the biggest damn thug of all, along with those who wear badges and uniforms throughout this shithole and who are also stationed all across this godforsaken planet, fucking people up just because they can. Donald Trump has said that white supremacists are “good people.” Donald Trump also stated that the whites who went to the state capitol in Michigan with assault rifles were just tired of being in quarantine and should have the right to get haircuts.” But let that have been some Black men toting guns around town and showing up at state capitols demanding to be let out of quarantine and their Black asses would have been shot so full of bullets, they’d ALL have looked like Swiss cheese on a slab in the morgue and don’t you ALL fucking know this! No National Guard was called out on those hate groups that took guns and rifles to the state capitol in Michigan. No curfew was placed on them. Why is that? The president condoned that shit, but let Black people have a problem with getting murdered for no goddamn reason by dirty, racist kkkops and we’re the “THUGS?” Fucking seriously???? Look at this shit in the video! You know as well as I do what would have happened to them if they had been Black! They’d ALL be dead; riddled with bullets from SWAT teams from ALL over this shithole! The laws that the whites put on the books don’t apply to them, they fucking apply ONLY to us! This shithole should still be on FIRE from when Michael Brown was shot and killed and his body lay out in the blazing sun, uncovered for hours! This shithole should have been ablaze up til now! Look at the blatant hypocrisy! Look at the blatant and outrageous racism and hatred directed at us for having the audacity to have had our ancestors dragged over here by the ancestors of the vile shits that are still murdering us to this day for something their ancestors put into play! FUCK.THEM.ALL.

Look at that shit and you tell me that Black people could have gotten away with doing that shit! I fucking dare you! George Floyd was doing nothing more than trying to purchase items in a corner store and for that, he was publicly lynched. The man did not even have a gun on him. Eric Garner was standing on a New York City Street armed with just some loose cigarettes when he was choked to death over cigarettes. Tamir Rice was playing with a toy gun in a park and was murdered two seconds after kops showed up. Aiyana Stanley Jones was sleeping in her bed when she was shot in the head by thugs in blue uniforms. Breonna Taylor was asleep in her bed when she was shot 8 times and murdered by thugs in blue uniforms. Sandra Bland was hanged in Texas jail cell because she failed to use the proper turn signal. John Crawford was murdered by thugs in blue uniforms because he was holding a toy gun inside a Walmart. Walter Scott was murdered by thugs in blue because he owed child support. Michael Brown was murdered by thugs in blue because he was suspected of stealing cigars. Jamar Clark was murdered by thugs in blue because of a traffic stop. Philando Castile was murdered by thugs in blue because he was merely OBEYING the order to produce his identification. Freddie Gray was minding his business on a Baltimore street and was murdered by thugs in blue uniforms for merely talking with acquaintances. Amadou Diallo was shot 41 times by those thugs in blue uniforms for merely trying to enter his home. Botham Shem Jean was murdered by a thug in a blue uniform for being suspected of burglarizing his own apartment. Rumain Brisbon was shot to death by thugs in blue uniforms because he was carrying his prescriptions. Akai Gurley was shot by thugs in blue uniforms in a dark hallway in November of 2014 and as of today, no one knows why or has been arrested for his murder. Kajieme Powell was shot and killed by thugs in blue uniforms for allegedly stealing an energy drink, the kkkops lied on him and said that he threatened them when witnesses said the man’s hands were by his side. As of today, no one is in prison for murdering him.

Ezell Ford was lying down when he was shot dead by thugs in blue uniforms and as of today, no one is sitting inside a prison cell for murdering him. Dante Parker was tasered to death by thugs in blue uniforms and as of today, no one is in custody for murdering him. Thugs in blue uniforms claimed that Tyree Woodson smuggled a gun inside a police station and used it to commit suicide. Yeah, that makes perfect sense. Those thugs in blue uniforms claim that Victor White killed himself while handcuffed inside a police car. Yeah, that also makes perfect sense. Yvette Smith was shot by police as she opened the door to them following a domestic disturbance call. The thugs in blue lied on her and said she had a gun. She did not and as of yet, no one is in custody for murdering her. McKenzie Cochran was also choked to death by thugs in uniform and as of yet, no one is in custody for murdering him. Jordan Baker was unarmed when he was shot dead by thugs in blue and as of yet, no one is in custody for murdering him. I could keep this going all damn day long, but the point should be well made; those thugs in blue uniforms are killing Black people because ALL other whites are behind them doing so. Those thugs in kop uniforms have relatives and some of those relatives are standing on the street right now pretending sympathy and empathy for what is going down when they are just as guilty as those they protect by their deafening silence over their racism!

American descendants of slavery, do NOT be fooled by the whites who are now pretending that they give a good goddamn over the murder of George Floyd by racist kops! This shit has been going down since forever and when did ANY whites give a damn enough to call for that shit to cease? Make no mistake, the only reason whites are out there trying to be seen on the streets is because they are out of a job. They are using our protests to fuck shit up because that’s what whites do! They cower behind someone else to do their dirt and then their dirt gets blamed on someone else; namely us.

Those depraved, pasty faced demons are not in our corner. They have never been in our corner and they never will be in our corner. The system of white supremacy is upheld by them because in order for white supremacy to reign, there must be a certain segment of the population for them to ‘lord’ it over and that would be us. When the whites’ shit ain’t somewhere fucked up, you don’t hear a peep from those skank motherfuckers, but now, all of a sudden, they’re out there fucking shit up. It’s because their shit is fucked up! We are not the only ones who are filling out unemployment applications. Those whites are sitting somewhere in line, when they’re not smashing windows out, waiting on some free food from the food bank, as well. Don’t let those white faces in the crowds fool you! They are our mortal enemy and shall forever remain so! Keep your goddamn distance from them as they mean you much harm!

 

 

 

Know Your Enemy!

They make the rules for you to obey.
They hold the cards because they’ve got it that way.

They don’t play fair and they never will.
They break their own rules, but it’s you they kill.

They gave you a number and they gave you a name.
They sold your body and they did it without shame.

They made you a slave for you to clean up their mess.
They destroy your home and they say its progress.

They take your culture and they turn a profit.
They have you bowing and worshiping their prophet.

They try to steal everything you are.
They rule over you and they go too far.

They judge you and they say that’s fair.
They fill your days and your nights with despair.

They will always be your enemy number one.
They hate the beautiful dark ones kissed by the sun.

So yeah, you remember who initiated GENTRIFICATION! You remember who rendered you HOMELESS. You remember why your children go to bed in a homeless shelter. You remember why you are always the last hired and the first fired. You remember who the faces of the mass incarcerated are. You remember who the faces of the school-to-prison pipeline are. You remember why Black people have no real wealth. You remember who bulldozed our homes and turned them into freeways. You remember who murdered those in the Black Panther Party because they refused to believe that there were some “good whites.” You remember that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., tried that PEACEFUL shit and what did it get him? An assassin’s bullet aimed at him by the white establishment. You remember ALL of this shit and then turn around and look at that white piece of shit that’s shouting, “No justice, no peace!” and you tell them to get the fuck out of your face with their racist bullshit! Whites DON’T change. They are exact replicas of those that dragged our ancestors over here for if not, would we still be dying at their hands, just because, in the year 2020? You know the answer to that!
