In Memory Of The Charleston, South Carolina Mass Church Shooting Victims By A Racist Terrorist!

A Nation That Has Never Let Love In

In a land that time has forgotten
 there lives a people of a much lighter hue.
 They rock back and forth on the porch
 and sip from a bottle of Mountain Dew.

But in this land that time has forgotten,
 there are others with a dark skin tone
 who simply try and go about their business.
And they just want to be left the hell alone.

Though innocent of any wrong doing,
 since they never asked to be here,
 they worshipped the god of another
 who said believe and never know fear.

So, on a hot southern night in June
 in the old weeping willow tree,
 the birds became quiet as the grave
 and no hum could be heard from a bee.

Hate slithered right up to the door
 of a church and was welcomed inside,
 where there was prayer and love everywhere.
And hate was welcomed with arms open wide.

But little did they know what was in their midst.
Or maybe in fact, they actually did
 know that life for them was at an end.
And that hate would close the coffin lid.

He hated them for the color of their skin
 over which they had no control.
They sat innocently around in a circle
 as hate filled them with many a bullet hole.

Oh god, where were you for these people
 who prayed and stayed true to their faith?
Are they truly in heaven with your son
 or is each just a lost and lonely wraith?

I cry for these souls of the south
 who never knew anything but hate,
 from those who taught them their religion.
But it was all just some worthless racist bait!

For they failed to teach it to their own.
If not, then why are these people dead?
They were killed by a son of death and hatred
 who believed that their blood would not flow red.

And to this day, hate must surely live on.
I hear the cry that the south will rise again.
And the statues and the flags that are still in view
speaks of a nation that has never let love in.

A year later, Charleston families still reeling from church shooting

Many were surprised when Nadine Collier stood in a South Carolina courtroom a year ago and said she forgave the young white man who had just killed her mother and eight other black churchgoers in a racially motivated attack.

Collier’s sister, the Reverend Sharon Risher, recalls wondering how she could so readily absolve Dylann Roof, 22, the man accused of opening fire during a Bible study on June 17, 2015, at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston.

I can only shake my head over the fact that Nadine Collier ‘forgave’ that racist terrorist for killing her own mother and the other churchgoers. I am going to keep this respectful because this is in remembrance of these people who were murdered for no reason because the color of their skin was no reason to kill them. There was no way they could hide that. They could not cover it up or chop it off or pretend to be another color just for a few hours. They were indeed, born with a dark skin tone and for that, they had to die? No, they had to die because this nation is steeped in hatred and shall forever remain so!

My only hope is that these people who worshipped their god, found some…..some…..damn! I don’t even know what they could have found! And so, I shall leave it at that!

History Has Taught You Nothing!

history book

I refuse to shed another tear.
Not one more tear will come
though I try to feel the pain
I am completely numb.

The ties that used to bind me
are no longer strong and true.
I have cried too many times
and I am tired, I’m done, I’m through.

How many times I’ve poured my heart
into writing about our plight
while we lie down and crawl
and never put up a fight.

We are gunned down and choked to death
and we just march and sigh.
But what we fail to realize
is that they want us all to die.

You cannot grasp or understand
that your life will never matter.
And regardless of what you do
like a mirror, your dreams, they’ll shatter.

You tell yourself that if you play
by the rules of those that hate,
somehow, someway, you’ll get by
if only you’ll assimilate.

Adopt their customs, accept their god
and believe the lies they tell.
History has taught you nothing
for they have deceived you well.

You Blacks Just Make Me Sick!!!!

Not ONE knew NOT to turn their back on THAT white shit???!!! Seriously???!!! For the love of ......!!!!!
Not ONE knew NOT to turn their back on THAT white shit???!!! Seriously???!!! For the love of ……!!!!!

You are punks and snot-nosed kids
since you lie down and take their shit.
You’re not worthy of Father’s Day.
Black boys, you’re too unfit.

You say that you’re a man?
Prove it and I’ll believe.
A man would fight, not run.
He wouldn’t cry on his mama’s sleeve.

Three punks got shot in church
by a boy with shit for brains.
Did they sit and sing a hymn
as the fear ran through their veins?

They never did a thing
to protect their queens that died.
But they welcomed in the fold
one they know has always lied.

Why would you turn your back
on an enemy that you know?
What the hell is wrong with you
when you will pray with your mortal foe?

You Blacks just make me sick
with your stupid, foolish ways.
You allow the enemy in
and wonder why you dig more graves.

You live in a state of hate
and the street names say it all.
They raped and lynched our ass
and for their bullshit, you still fall.

But you say that you’re a man
born of kings from the Ivory Coast.
And yet, it takes just one white shit
to make every Black ass, toast!

I sincerely hope that you stupid Black motherfuckers are enjoying Father’s Day even though it does not pertain to you. How in the hell did three so-called Black men, do not a goddamn thing but sit in a prayer circle and not only let six women get shot, but allow themselves to get shot dead? Were they just sitting there waiting on an epiphany from god or were they waiting on god to intervene and knock the goddamn gun out of this little white shit’s hand? Black motherfuckers make me want to puke when all they ever talk about is how they ain’t going out like some punk ass bitch and that is exactly how they go out! You motherfuckers don’t look at the goddamn news? You don’t know that your ass is on every fucking body’s hit list from skinhead cops to your average garden variety bigot? When are you going to figure out that it has been open season on our ass since the first white foot stepped said foot in Africa and was ALLOWED to drag us the fuck over here? And why would that be? Because Blacks are such MANLY MEN? Hell if that’s so! I don’t give a goddamn if the enemy has to fuck up several million of us with their goddamn guns, if the enemy is in my country of birth, damn it if he is going to take it the fuck over AND steal my motherfucking people and enslave them!

And yet Black people are always somewhere attempting to point to how smart the people of Africa are. I fucking can’t see it! If the Africans were so goddamn smart, would the whites be over there owning every goddamn thing and would they have had the ability to distribute AIDS and every goddamn thing else over there? The white bastards have not taken over China. Russia told the Nazis to fuck off! But Africa and Australia have been taken over by the whites when there was a majority Black population in both and we like to think that we are SO goddamn smart? Yeah! Put that stupid shit to rest ’cause it so ain’t true! That much should be obvious even to a blind man that’s been planted! And you stupid motherfuckers are still walking around saying, “We still believe that prayer changes things!” For real? So, will prayer take us back to BEFORE those nine people got whacked by a ‘son of the confederacy’? I didn’t fucking think so!

“It has been tough, it’s been rough, some of us have been downright angry, but through it all God has sustained us and has encouraged us. Let us not grow weary in well-doing,” said the Rev. Norvel Goff, a presiding elder of the 7th District AME Church in South Carolina.

Yep! Spoken like a REAL man! “God is gonna sustain and encourage us to keep getting our ass kicked,” so says the presiding elder. “Sweet GEEZUS! I believe! Oh what faith, I have!”

Gag me with a goddamn spoon!

Happy Father’s Day Malcolm X, to you and ONLY you! To hell with you Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and all the rest of you pansy-pants snot-nosed crybabies because you never could get your act together. Thanks to you, we got so many Black MEN now, it is ‘unreal’ and that is a fact because it is just NOT reality! Now you stupid lily-livered Black motherfuckers, suck on that! You’re NOT men, you’re fucking crybabies! So cry into those goddamn buckets that I have placed in front of you for your sad ass tears!

…And Here Are The Buckets!

buckets1

The gospel of peace is what was preached
 but into his pants, for a gun, he reached.
You thought you were safe inside hallowed walls
 but no matter where you go, hate slithers and crawls.
Hate does not listen to sermons and hymns.
You cannot fight from whence hate stems.
It is learned and it is carried forth
 to the east, the west, the south and the north.
You try to escape from the hatred of terrorists
 just as you’ve run from the slavers and the rapists.
You sought out their god to take away your pain.
And you trusted in their god, but your trust was in vain.
Now, we are weeping for the trust they displayed
 in a white youth who was racist as well as depraved.
A mother, a sister, a daughter, a husband; all are dead
 and here are the buckets for the tears, we will shed.
There is no need to take a gun to church
 or to empty purses and pockets to search.
Did not god protect and save his own
 from an attack by a terrorist that was homegrown?

And of course, as usual, the whites control the narrative, the script on what was behind this heinous crime. If a Muslim had shot up a ‘white’ sanctuary, he would have been labeled, a terrorist. If a Black man had shot up a ‘white’ sanctuary, he would have been labeled, a thug, but when a racist, white supremacist TERRORIST shoots up a majority Black church, he is mentally ill. I wonder how much money his parents have because if they have a boatload, his lawyer can use the defense that Roof suffered from ‘affluenza’ and therefore, should be remanded into the custody of a psychologist for gentle psychoanalytical treatment and relaxation therapy, whereupon, he shall be released after having been cured in about six months time.

Meanwhile Black folks, get your limp ass protest signs out from underneath the couch, dust them off and head for the streets to continue the marching that has been going on for over 50 years. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and company would be so proud of you for taking up where they left off because they would understand that the only way to obtain justice from the whites is to continue to march and BEG them to grant you peace from the constant attack on your mind, body and soul. And if you think that that will make any difference in your life, ask Dr. King and all the others why they never could stop marching. Can you imagine how many shoes they wore out? No wonder Black people open shoeshine stands, the only thing that’s keeping our feet from touching the pavement is all the shoe polish that’s dripped onto the soles of our shoes, thus providing us with the ability to continue ‘jiving’ down the street to the beat of “No justice! No Peace!” And know this, you’ll get neither! When you finally figure this out, then and only then will you know what to do! But until you realize that your ass is toast, I’ve provided buckets by the thousands for your tears!

“You Rape Our Women And Are Taking Over Our Country!”

dylann roof

“You rape our women and are taking over our country,” so said Dylann Storm Roof, the white supremacy filled TERRORIST that murdered nine innocent people who were hell bent on worshipping the ‘god’ of the white man in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church at around 8pm on Wednesday night and sat in a Bible study group with his victims for more than an hour before opening fire. Dylann Storm Roof has just got to be in Africa. He’s got to be because that is exactly what happened in Africa and is also what happened as Africans were shipped to different countries to become slaves.

Those of us who are descendants of slaves here in America are every shade from palest pale to darkest Black and why would that be? It be from rape! The rape of our ancestors took place in this hell that has been nothing but pure hell for every Black person in AmeriKKKa. And who the fuck was raping whom? The goddamn lily white asses was raping the Black slaves from presidents on down. Goddamn Thomas Jefferson, a stomp down flaming racist, hypocritical slave owning bastard, raped his own wife’s slave sister and begat child after child on her and never did ‘free’ them even though he spoke of “being with one mind resolved to die freemen rather than to live slaves” and “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” all while brandishing a whip over his affrighted slaves.

But along comes a white supremacy filled terrorist talking about who is raping and taking over his country when….let me just take a minute here………………….when not one Black person that is a descendant of slaves is here because we rowed over to AmeriKKKa, got off at Ellis Island, looked up at the Statue of Liberty, read the poem at its base and said, “Yep! This here is the place to be!”

I just cannot wrap my head around this shit! I fucking can’t! And as if what was done isn’t bad enough, Black folks are already speaking of ‘forgiving this piece of shitty filth’. Are you fucking for real??!!!! We never ever fucking learn! We just continue to bend over and take it up the ass! We continue to ‘forgive’ the motherfuckers that are hell bent on exterminating us just as they did to the Indians! We must forgive and we must forget all the senseless murders of Black people thanks to the goddamn white supremacy that IS this hellhole!

https://embed.theguardian.com/embed/video/world/video/2015/jun/19/son-of-shooting-vicitim-talks-video

And of course, it has been stated that those nine people are with the white man’s ‘god’ now. That is just SO pathetic and just unbelievable! Black people still don’t get it. You never will. This shit is your mortal enemy and has been from day one. The goddamn governor of South Carolina never said a word as she commenced to hypocritically get choked up, about the confederate flag flying atop the state capitol, the very same flag that is depicted on Roof’s license plate. But she is just so overcome with righteous indignation over the brutal murders of nine of her constituents. My bad, of nine of her ‘niggers’ that got themselves offed by a white supremacy filled terrorist for “raping our women and taking over our country”. So, six Black women and three Black men are raping women and taking over the country? Well not any more! Cynthia Hurd, 54; Tywanza Sanders, 26; Sharonda Singleton; Myra Thompson, 59; Ethel Lance, 70; Susie Jackson, 87; the Rev. Daniel Simmons Sr.; DePayne Doctor and of course, Reverend Clementa Pinckney are all dead for ‘raping women and taking over a country’ as they worshipped in the house of the Lawd in Charleston, South Carolina. They worshipped the same Lawd that has now welcomed them into the bosom of his ever loving white family beyond the stars, somewhere high in an unseen paradise that awaits us all. They are there now with their 72 wives. Oh my bad! Wrong religious credentials. They are there living in one of the Lawd’s many mansions and dining at the table of good and plenty, replete from consuming fishes and loaves and sipping the nectar of the ‘gods’! My bad, of ‘god’. Praise be sweet GEEZUS and Lawd, we bow before your heavenly presence in humble submission as our faith has truly been tested beyond the bounds of anything imaginable and at last, we are here! Oh rejoice! Rejoice! And if only the Black people that we left behind could understand that it is all worth it; every single bullet that has entered their bodies, fired from a racist’s gun, every job they’ve been denied based on their skin color, every Black man that was lynched, every Black man that was electrocuted and was innocent, every Black child, woman and man that has been discriminated against, jailed, hosed, bitten by dogs, marched on tired feet, dragged behind pickup trucks, considered three-fifths of a person; it will all become clear why you had to go through this once you enter the pearly gates and St. Peter welcomes you in to god’s loving white embrace. “Oh damn! A white man just came up to me in heaven and told me to clean his shoes. Goddamn! Black folks, never mind, it’s all bullshit! So do as Thomas Jefferson suggested, “live as free men or die slaves!”

My sure ass bet is that we will die as slaves!

And Obama said, “let’s grab a beer!”
We captured him, so let’s all cheer!
The Blacks forgave and that’s just right.
So let’s join hands and we’ll all unite!
Singing, born in the USA, born in the USA!
Altogether now, born in the USA!
Although, if truth beknown, I ain’t from here.
I be’ze from Kenya or Hawaii, it ain’t real clear!”

Forgive my lack of grammatical skills and all. Us slaves bain’t tawt tuh reed n rite reul gude!

Oh and one more thing, I just ‘love’ how MSM keeps saying, “HE ALMOST DIDN’T DO IT!” That should make those nine dead people feel really good about that. Yep! Let’s focus on “HE ALMOST DIDN’T DO IT!”!

Freddie Gray, We Failed You!

freddie gray3

Freddie Gray, we failed you.
It would seem, we always will.
We failed Amadou Diallo,
and all the rest on their list to kill.

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

Eric, 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.

A mother slapped her child,
for throwing rocks and glass and such,
and the media played that up.
At that shit, they always clutch.

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 shithole 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’re a slave, you are not free!

If anyone thinks that the racist cops will be held accountable for Freddie Gray’s death, are you serious? With video proof that Eric Garner was murdered in cold blood, where is the indictment? With video proof of the murder of Tamir Rice, where is the indictment? With video proof of the murder of John Crawford, where is the indictment? And certainly what happened to Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina deserves a mention. What slap on the wrist will that cop get even with being charged with murder? And poor Freddie Gray was just minding his business in what the whites labeled a ‘high crime area’ so he must have been committing a crime, but so far, we’ve yet to know what crime he committed. Oh, that’s right! He fled! Even if I was in a wheelchair, I would have fled as fast as my battery powered seat could get me the hell out of there especially seeing as how Black men don’t seem to fare well when coming into contact with AmeriKKKa’s storm troopers.

And we want to think that the deceased are resting in peace? Get real!

Oh and for the woman that slapped her child, he should have hauled off and slapped some sense into your ass!

Born With A Defect, I Did Not Choose!

chained hands

I heave a cross too heavy to bear.
The burden is the hated skin I wear.

Born with a defect, I did not choose.
My birth mark is this Black and Brown bruise.

It got me shot, for why else am I dead?
I tried to cover it up; I put a hoodie on my head.

In my vehicle, I don’t want to be seen
by the slave patrols on supremacy caffeine.

If I take a walk in the wrong neighborhood,
they gun me down like I’m made of wood.

When they make me the enemy everywhere I go,
the law is on their side and I’m a duck in a row.

These iron chains, I cannot break.
I am still a slave, make no mistake.

They hunt us down and we’ve no place to run.
My hands are in the air; white man, you have won!
