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.

 

Our Death Is All They Seek!

Our Death Is All They Seek!

 

To finally get some peace, he had to die out on the street,
killed by hate and racism from every white man we still meet.
For over four hundred years, we have been screaming out our pain,
and little did we know that our screams were all in vain.

The world is finally listening, but what good will that do us?
We marched to sit up front, but now we’re underneath the bus.
The ‘leader’ of this country stood and told us we are “THUGS!”
And then he told his gangsters to stomp us like we’re bugs.

We own no tanks or missiles, nor drones to take a stand.
We’re tired and poor and cursed in this white man’s stolen land.
Our death is all they seek and so we’re off to bury the dead.
Because to them we lack humanity, though our blood is also red.

Why must we bear the blame for a crime we didn’t commit?
To this day, it seems we’re slaves and to their will, we must submit.
We are a people without a country; we are clouds in a savage storm.
blown away by white supremacy, a system they can’t reform.
One day, there’ll be a reckoning that we won’t live to see
for those of us alive today, are still yearning to be free.

It is a sad ass shame that the only way those of us who are descendants of slaves who were dragged over here to ‘serve’ the white man AND white woman’s every whim, can expect to get any peace from them is by being murdered at their hands. There are too many times that we have trudged through a cemetery to bury our dead and some racist kop was never indicted or even fired from his duties of murdering us.

Poor Black people, who mostly cannot even afford life insurance, have to make use of crowd funding or either some ‘celebrity’ will come forward to pay for the funeral expenses. From cradle to grave, we are to forever hand the white man some money while he is busy killing us since many Black women’s babies die in childbirth in this supposedly, First World Nation. What sense does that make? And even if we make it to our teenage years, we are still murdered for merely coming home from a store, carrying iced tea and skittles. Our children cannot even play in a park without getting shot dead. We cannot drive down the street without getting pulled over and shot for complying with the orders to produce our identification. We cannot sleep in our beds without kops beating down the door and shooting us as we lay deep in slumber and yet, none are held accountable for what they do to us.

And now, another Black family, the family of George Floyd, is about set to bury him because he went into a store and was accused of trying to purchase items with a counterfeit bill, and I have heard that even that was a lie. But even so, was that any reason for a racist kop to murder him, casually as though he was merely a bug to be squashed on the sidewalk? As if that is not bad enough, a stomp down, flaming racist, draft dodging bigot has the nerve to order the U.S. military to ‘put us down’ when he was scared too shitless to even join the very military he has called out on us. What sense does that make?

But you whites want to write blog after blog about how ‘woke’ your ass is now! You ain’t woke. Your funky, filthy ass racist petticoat is showing and the world is now denouncing the shit that you’ve been subjecting us to for hundreds of years in this shithole. You haven’t been struck by a ray of conscientiousness. You don’t even have a conscience to berate you, for if you did, would our situation now be making headline news all across this godforsaken planet that you have managed to fuck up? Hell no, it wouldn’t.

You whites think that you’re doing something by showing up at a protest with a sign stating, “Black Lives Matter!” Our lives have never mattered to you and don’t you think for one damn second that I am buying your flaming lies now! So save it! I’m not buying your sudden displays of solidarity when you are why GENTRIFICATION has driven us into homelessness. You are why we are incarcerated by the millions. You are why we are dumb as shit because while you are funding private schools with our money, public schools don’t even have computers or enough books in them and this you know. We are the faces of the jobless, the hungry and the homeless and the disparities in healthcare is obscene and dangerous and is causing our demise at a faster rate than yours. We don’t have any hopes of longevity and most don’t even want to live long, hopeless, racism filled lives of despair!

You whites have shitted on us from the time our ancestors were dragged ashore and you are still shitting on us and telling us that we are to blame for crime in the inner cities; that we are to blame for not having land and wealth to hand down to our sons and daughters. How the hell can we hand a damn thing down to anyone when you made damn sure that you owned it ALL because you damn well owned our ancestors that you claimed were only three fifths of a human? How the hell did you expect us to overcome that shit? YOU DIDN’T. So don’t now turn around and act like you are just getting hit with an epiphany. You know what the fuck you’ve been doing to us and you’re not about to stop that shit now. Shove that fake ass solidarity shit up your pale asses because I am having none of it!

 

How the hell did that man, George Floyd, deserve that? But that is ALL too familiar to us! And you dirty, filthy, racist whites know that this has been going down for centuries. You know this because racists like that piece of shit are YOUR family members and you know your own damn family because you’re one of them. So don’t now claim that you had no idea about ANY of this shit because you’re a goddamn liar! Fucking flaming, racist hypocrites! I despise you ALL!

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!

That THUG In The White House Has The Unmitigated Gall To Call Those Protesting The Death Of George Floyd, Thugs! Seriously??!!!

The draft-dodger-in-chief and the world’s number one THUG had the audacity to take to Twitter and post this!

There would be NO need for a “memory of George Floyd” if those THUGS in blue uniforms had not killed the man for no goddamn reason other than the fact that the system of white supremacy upholds that shit and Donald ‘THUG’ Trump embodies that vicious and brutal system of white supremacy and so how dare his depraved, racist ass speak on who are thugs when there could be no greater thug on this planet than this entire piece of shit, racist shithole called, Amerikkka!

I am fed the fuck up with whites telling us that we have to go about remembering our dead, PEACEFULLY! Of course the whites want our asses to be peaceful because that way they can continue to operate their fucking businesses and the same with those immigrants whom they allowed to come here and climb on top of us because make no mistake, the business owner of Cup Foods that called the Klan on George Floyd was NOT an American descendant of slavery, but was in fact someone whom the whites had welcomed over here from elsewhere. Since there is mosque located on the ground floor of Cup Foods, more than likely, the owner of Cup Foods is probably from the Middle East somewhere and they hate our guts as well. They don’t even associate with American descendants of slavery.

I just looked up the owner of Cup Foods and voila! I was right. The owner is Mahmod Abumayaleh, who stated that many times customers come in with counterfeit money and don’t even know it’s counterfeit. He stated that if he had been in his convenience store at the time George Floyd was in there, the police would not have been called. And so I guess that it just wasn’t George Floyd’s lucky day in that Mahmod Abumayaleh was not there to tell the clerk that there was no need for police involvement, however, that is cold comfort to George Floyd since he is cold and lying on a coroner’s slab in the morgue having an autopsy performed on him so that more lies can come out as to how he died. I am pretty sure that we are going to be told that George Floyd was already dead BEFORE Officer Klan Chauvin even placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck. I mean, they’ve told countless lies already as to what occurred, in that George Floyd resisted arrest and had to be manhandled. Well, another store owner handed over a video that shows just the opposite of the kops’ lies.

And even with knowing that the kops have already begun with the lies, people who look like George Floyd should just continue to march, peacefully through the streets at allotted times and on allotted days until the white man tells them, that’s enough? Seriously??!!! They’d better not ground capitalism to a halt especially since Donald Trump just ordered the reopening of this vile shithole that coronavirus had put on lockdown.

So what??!! A goddamn AutoZone was burned to the ground. So what??!! A new apartment building was burned to the ground; those damn buildings are insured and so the rebuilding can start right away. There is no ‘rebuilding’ of George Floyd. There is no amount of insurance that can bring George Floyd back to life. And how BIG of the owner of Cup Foods to state that he “has offered to pay for Floyd’s funeral expenses.”

But as of yet, no charges have been filed against ANY of the THUGS IN BLUE UNIFORMS that took the life of George Floyd. I see, Donald Trump did NOT call those THUGS exactly what they are, GOVERNMENT SANCTIONED THUGS, and he won’t. We are to sit back and twiddle our thumbs and wait on the slow ass process of the criminal injustice system to do not a goddamn thing! The criminal injustice system is quick to dish out punishment and death to us, but when their no account asses have been found to do some filthy, dirty ass, horrendous shit, we are to sit and wait for the slow ass cogs of the law to start turning. To hell with that shit!

I have posted blog after blog after blog after blog about what American descendants of slavery have to go through in Minneapolis, MN. Every single group of immigrants, even illegal ones crawls over here and climbs right on top of us, just as they do everywhere else in this shithole built by our ancestors while we suffer abject poverty, homelessness, hunger and get shot dead or choked to death by dirty ass racist kops every goddamn day! Enough is a fucking nough!

AGAIN, as long as American descendants of slavery just accept our plight and accept us getting murdered, daily and accept having whites call the kops on us because they refuse to leash their dog or because they don’t like us having a barbecue or because they don’t want to see us taking a nap in the common area of a college dorm that we are paying tuition at or because they don’t like to see us in the pool or because they don’t like to see us doing our job of inspecting homes for fire codes and the goddamn list of the like is endless, everything is cool. But the minute we start fucking shit up, that’s when thugs like Trump get to talking about shooting us down like animals because some goddamn no account businesses are getting fucked up! TO.HELL.WITH.THOSE.GODDAMN.BUSINESSES.PERIOD. I wish the fuck I was in Minneapolis because damn it if I would take the shit lying down. Fuck you whites who sit back on your asses and watch this shit go down and look the other way or talk about how ‘violent’ the protesters are when you say nothing about how depraved, blood thirsty and racist you and those who look like you are. You are those kops that did that to George Floyd and so fuck each and every single one of you! I’m not beholden to any of you motherfuckers for shit!

I am glad Metro Transit had to shut the bus service and the light rail down. I am damn glad that 24 Target stores had to close their goddamn doors. I am glad that shit is happening because the only thing that gets the attention of the whites is when their shit is affected; when their fucking businesses are dealt with. And the infuriated protesters have been dealing with that shit!

Over four hundred years of rage is raging on the streets of cities in states all across this fucked up country and I just wish that shit would continue into perpetuity because that is what needs to happen. Damn some goddamn peaceful protesting shit! Does it look like we get any goddamn peace from you filthy ass, debased, savage, vicious, murdering white devils? Hell fucking no! And so why should we continue to march down the goddamn street doing the same thing we’ve been doing for countless decades? Ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., what peaceful protesting gets you. Oh, he can’t answer you because the government, backed by THUGS like Trump had him assassinated. You could not get more ‘peaceful’ and ‘dreamlike’ than Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and still you lousy, motherfucking whites killed him and yet you expect us to continue in that vein? Not bloody likely, as you’ve seen for the last few days. Like I stated before, I just wish the protesters would continue despite Trump’s vile threats. And if a Black person had stated what Trump did, their fucking tweet would have long since disappeared and don’t we ALL fucking know this. Double fucking standards much? I’m damned tired of the shit we have to face every single day over something that is not our fault. We did NOT drag our asses over here. We did NOT immigrate here. That shit is not on us or our ancestors and you pasty assed motherfucking whites know who that shit is on, but yet you blame us, day in and day out for what YOUR goddamn worthless, lazy, rotten ass ancestors put into play. We are fucking tired of being recorded dying on the mean streets of this shithole and told to “go about effecting change, PEACEFULLY!” Shove that shit up your pasty assholes, whites! It’s about time you got a taste of your own goddamn foul ass medicine!

 

AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN!

We dance this dance again,
so move over Eric Garner.
A new video is in town;
another Black man is a goner.

March again and protest.
Where is justice? Where is peace?
There is no hint of either.
Sit down! This shit won’t cease!

Paste another face on a shirt.
Go out and scream your pain.
Blow dust off an old poster.
Let your tears blend with the rain.

Yes, here we go again.
The same writing is on the wall.
Nothing much has changed.
Black lives matter to none at all.

You really can’t see the truth?
Seriously, must you be so dense,
to think that you can change
what has never made any sense?

Our bodies don’t mean shit
to the ones you protest to.
We’ve never, ever mattered
and you know that this is true.

But still, you beg them to care.
You plead to be left alone.
They’ll walk with you for a day
And then, you are on your own.

You see, we are here on sufferance,
and have overstayed no welcome,
that was never extended to us.
We’re just an object for their venom.

Now, protest all day long.
Take it to the streets.
Stand shoulder to shoulder,
with those who wear the sheets.

Give it another month or two,
and you’ll be doing this yet again;
the very definition of crazy,
expecting justice from white men.

We Is Dead Meat To Them!

Alton Sterling, he bit the dust,
down in ole Baton Rouge.
He weren’t looking for no whores
of the like in “Moulin Rouge.”

I hear he was selling CDs,
trying to become a businessman.
But just like Eric Garner,
he needed another plan.

And now, another gentle giant
was felled by the slave patrol.
You have got to understand
that the white man is in control.

So, pick up your protest sign,
and get to marching down the street.
I know your shoes are worn out
as is your tired and aching feet.

But this is how you effect change,
like they did in Dr. King’s day.
Just ask him how that worked.
Damn! He can’t talk no way!

Dr. King was all peaceful like
as he took to the streets of hell.
He said, “I gots me a dream
and they shot him dead as well.

Oh, but things is different now.
They let you riot and go berserk
but then they say, “Alright, you’re done!”
And around your neck, that chain, they jerk!

We’re all Massa’s boys and girls.
We sing and we dance for him.
But if we got no talent at all,
then we is dead meat to them.

I wrote those two poems in 2015 and 2016 and yet they still apply today. Tell me, what the fuck has changed? But yeah! We are supposed to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up about the continuation of this shit! I don’t blame the protesters for going the fuck off. I just wish I was there with them. I wish the shit that they are doing, they’d NEVER stop doing it, but alas, my wish is in vain because this has ALL happened so many times before and it will happen again.

And as usual, when Black people go the fuck off and with GOOD GODDAMN REASON, we are always labeled, “THUGS” by the white establishment. This is what ‘our’ so called, ‘president’ thinks of American descendants of slavery. But when white males go on killing sprees, they are merely labeled, “mentally ill.” And if the Muslims get to fucking shit up because they get goddamn tired of the shit done to them by the whites, they are labeled, “terrorists!” Oh, the hypocrisy and double standards are glaringly obvious. The biggest THUGS and criminals and terrorists on this goddamn planet are WHITES and you fuckers are indeed, insane, but your insanity, you gladly embrace; fucking deranged sociopaths!

“Go rot in hell Trump! and take ALL white motherfuckers with you!”

 

 

 

 

 

George Floyd! Where Do I Begin?

Like Eric Garner, he said, “I can’t breathe!” And like Eric Garner, his family now has to plan his funeral.

 

 

First of all, I was sitting in my favorite recliner reading yet another ‘whodunnit’ and for those of you who would like to know the name of this particular ‘whodunnit’, the book’s title is “A Poisoned Season,” by Tasha Alexander. But as usual, I digress. However, the title of this book is very apropos especially since it would seem that when it comes to American descendants of slavery, every season is a ‘poisoned season’.

My cousin came in and hit me with the news that yet ANOTHER Black man was murdered in Minneapolis, MN by white kops.

Police in riot gear fire rubber bullets and tear gas at thousands of protestors demanding the arrest of four Minneapolis cops involved in the death of black man George Floyd

Minneapolis cops in riot gear last night fired rubber bullets and tear gas at thousands of defiant protesters who took to the streets to demand justice for George Floyd, the black man who died after a white officer was filmed kneeling on his neck during his arrest.

Demonstrators carrying placards reading ‘I can’t breathe’ and ‘Justice 4 Floyd’ surrounded a police precinct Tuesday night after the disturbing video of 46-year-old Floyd begging the cop to stop before falling unconscious was shared online.

Now, right out of the gate, set the scene. It is July 17, 2014 and Eric Garner is standing on a New York City street selling loose, untaxed cigarettes when he is confronted by NYPD and even though he asks them to leave him alone, he ends up in an illegal chokehold that results in his murder. Eric Garner’s final words were, “I Can’t Breathe!” The kop who murdered him, Daniel Pantaleo was NOT fired from the NYPD until August 19, 2019. It took that long for the police commissioner to decide that what Daniel Pantaleo did to Eric Garner warranted his being fired. And remember, that bastard, Pantaleo was still on the clock and received hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money while whites were trying to decide if he should be fired, at the very least.

NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo fired over 2014 Eric Garner chokehold death August 19, 2019 / 8:34 PM / CBS/AP Officer fired over Eric Garner death New York City’s police commissioner has fired a police officer involved in the 2014 death of Eric Garner.

“In this case the unintended consequence of Mr. Garner’s death must have a consequence of its own,” said O’Neill. “It is clear that Daniel Pantaleo can no longer effectively serve as a New York City police officer.”

Now let that marinate and resonate with you for a minute while I continue.

We ALL should remember Tamir Rice. Tamir Rice was playing with a toy gun in a park and someone called the kops on him and within two seconds of the racist white kops pulling up on Tamir Rice, he was dead; shot multiple times. He was twelve years old. No one was held accountable for his death. His family settled a lawsuit and all is well, only I am quite sure that Tamir Rice doesn’ think so, but since he is not up to thinking, being all dead, who the fuck cares, right? I mean the protests ceased. Everyone went back home and got back to fighting one another on Facebook and Twitter. All’s well that ends well. Tamir Rice’s murderer went on to get himself rehired by another police department. All’s well that ends well.

The KKKop That Murdered 12-Year Old Tamir Rice Has Been Rehired By Another Police Department In Ohio

“Timothy Loehmann will work as a cop in the village of Bellaire, OH, population 4,000, police Chief Richard Flanagan announced. “He’s not quitting on being a police officer. He made a decision that’s going to stay with him the rest of his life,” said Flanagan. “Like anybody else, if you make a mistake, someone’s got to give you a second chance, give someone opportunity. There is no worry, I stand behind this officer.”

Does anyone remember Freddie Gray? He was minding his business in Baltimore, MD when the kops pulled up on him, harassed him and then murdered him. Not one kop is currently serving any time in prison for his murder. When Freddie Gray was murdered by kop, I posted this poem:

Freddie Gray, they severed your spine
and now you lie in a box of pine.
The neighborhood put up a shrine.
BLACKLIVESMATTER, where is your sign?
And if you ever step out of line
they gone jail your ass, that pink-assed swine!

Freddie Gray can’t rest in peace
cause kops killing us, ain’t gonna cease!

Did they cease?

Now, you also remember, since it just happened recently, the kops murdering Breonna Taylor, who was shot eight times as she lay sleeping in her own home. Breonna Taylor was only 26 years old and was a frontline worker, working as an EMT saving lives during a pandemic. The kops showed up at her door for no reason because the person that they were on the hunt for had already been arrested. Unfortunately for Ms. Taylor’s boyfriend, because the kops had no reason to barge into their home is irrelevant, he is in prison on charges of shooting at kops that had no business in his face to begin with. As for Ms. Taylor’s death, she is just considered ‘collateral damage’ in the eyes of the whites. All’s well that ends well.

Next we come to Ahmaud Arbery, a case whereas Mr. Arbery 25, was murdered on Feb. 23, 2020 and the WHITE suspects were arrested on May 7, Gregory and Travis McMichael, but only after public outrage. All’s well that ends well.

The names of those murdered by kops that got off scot free just keep on coming; Sandra Bland, Jamar Clark, Philando Castile, Michael Brown, Alton Sterling, John Crawford, Aiyana Stanley-Jones was 7 years old when she was killed by a single bullet to the head. As officer Joseph Weekley walks free, another community is demanding answers about the increasing militarization of law enforcement. All’s well that ends well.

If I continued in this vein, I would be at it for the next 30 years and so we come to George Floyd; another Black man murdered by racists in blue uniforms in Minneapolis, MN. I guess killing Jamar Clark and Philando Castile was just not enough for the Minneapolis kops. Over an alleged suspicion of a forged check, a man lost his life. I have not seen the video but I could not help but see a picture of George Floyd lying on the ground with a white kop’s knee on his neck. He told the kop that he could not breathe right up until he stopped breathing. An ambulance was called and the body of George Floyd was taken to a hospital where it was pronounced, dead. Four kops that were involved have been fired. What good does that do when we ALL know that as was the case with the kop that killed Tamir Rice, he simply got hired at a different police department? And so, again. what the hell does firing those racist, bottom feeding, scum sucking pieces of filthy shit, do? It does nothing!

And right on cue, the protests have started. What good does that do? Look at ALL of the Black people who have been murdered by kop over the years and you tell me, what does another protest or march do to stop that shit? What does printing “Black Lives Matter!” signs do to stop that shit? What does engaging with the kops in throwing shit solve? The protesters get sent running with rubber bullets being fired at them along with tear gas and “the show is over, folks.” People are still protesting over what happened to Ahmaud Arbery and while they are doing that, some folks in Minneapolis, MN have taken to the streets once again.

For the folks in Minneapolis, MN, tell me, why are you protesting? Did it matter when you protested against the kop killing of Jamar Clark? Did it matter when you protested the kop killing of Philando Castile?

That is the definition of insanity; doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. What these protesters are doing is pointless.

And again!

Now that you think you’ve done something constructive in the fight against the insidiously corrupt system of white supremacy, you can take your lame asses on home because you’ve accomplished, nothing.

Next!

What the fuck? None of us can breathe!

 

 

Racism, police brutality, whites calling the kops on us just because, is going to continue since everyone is quite well aware that the only thing that’s going to happen is, you’re going to protest for a couple of days and then take your useless ass home. Black assed attorney, Benjamin Crump, will get another high profile ‘kop killing Black folks’ case, take his cut and dole out the rest to the family of the deceased.The family of the latest to die at the hands of brutal, racist kops will settle for 6 million dollars or less and shut the fuck up. Their dead will be buried and then we will be outraged in a few weeks over this same shit occurring and back on the streets with those useless ass signs we will be. What we should be doing, we won’t do because this shithole needs to get fucked up to the point of no return. But since we don’t have the balls to do what needs to be done, we will continue to plead to breathe. And we shall continue to be allowed to die instead. So, take several seats while shutting the fuck up. You look ridiculous!

 

Kops murdering American descendants of slavery…..to be continued…….. because all’s well  that ends well, so says ‘white supremacy’.

Why Amy Cooper’s Name (and Face) Matters More Than Christian Cooper’s — The Human’ish

Because America needs to know what criminal behavior looks like, and who is perpetrating the violence. And it does not matter who Mr. Cooper is (handsome), where he comes from, or how he came to be in the Rambles (bird watching). This story is about Amy Cooper, who didn’t like being told the area’s leash laws, and who disliked even more, the color of the skin beholden to the man telling her to leash the dog. In New York City. In 2020. Which is just breathtaking. […]

via Why Amy Cooper’s Name (and Face) Matters More Than Christian Cooper’s — The Human’ish

Also from the original article:

Amy Cooper disregarded leash laws, she disregarded the human reiterating the leash laws. She threatened his penal livelihood by threatening to call the cops. She then called the cops. And while she is on the phone with emergency personnel, she doesn’t say to them: I wanted to keep my dog off leash in the Rambles and some dude told me not to and tried to feed my dog treats. She fakes an attack, specifies that it is being perpetrated by an African American man, all while choking out her dog. That right there is violence. That right there is racism. The actions that she took were criminal, they were unnecessary, and most of all they were dangerous. And the “apology” that came out afterwards was even more scathing. You should fire your publicist immediately.

As furious as many of us are in the Black community, the man who this racist piece of shit tried to ‘murder by kop’ is already stating that Amy Cooper “should not receive death threats.” Is he for real? Seriously? It sounds as if he has already ‘forgiven’ her since he at least, is still here to give voice to what he believes, thinks and feels and thinks the “death threats” should cease. He is not making “death threats” against that lying, racist white bitch, that’s on whomever is, but that’s not on him. He should just keep his mouth shut about whatever the fuck is aimed at Amy Cooper because believe me, she would NOT be taking to media platforms doing likewise for his Black ass and he should know this.

This is why in the year of no lord, 2020, we as Black people are still getting our asses kicked. We will downplay the most vile shit done to us and call for “unity in the community” as opposed to calling for the shit to get fucked up!

How many of us have to die at the hands of these rabid, racist whites? How many of us are a potential Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Aiyana Mo’nay Stanley-Jones, Philando Castile, Walter Scott, Alton Sterling, Freddie Gray and the goddamn list is endless?

Black men have long thought of white female parasites as something that’s top notch; something to be sought after. Kobe Bryant’s dead ass thought he had something when he married that white bitch that’s now enjoying the fruits of his labor. Scottie Pippen’s ugly ass cannot leave white bitches alone and on and on it goes and so it is no wonder that Christian Cooper is upset about the alleged “death threats” aimed at Amy Cooper’s racist, pasty ass!

Black women, we need to seriously stop caping for these sell-outs. It is quite obvious that us taking to the streets in protest of Black men getting themselves fucked up by whites is not appreciated because ain’t no way in hell, I would be sitting somewhere giving interviews stating that the bitch that tried to get me “murdered by kop” does not deserve “death threats.” Her racist ass receiving “death threats” would not even register with me. Let her deal with that shit since she set the shit in motion, but I’d not say a damn word about whatever the fuck she’s getting as a result of what she initiated when she called the kops and lied on a Black man, knowing full well what would more than likely happen when she did and yet she did it anyway. And her fucking racist ass ain’t sorry! Since she loves calling the kops, she can very well call the kops and report those ALLEGED “death threats.” Since her pasty ass is racist, then she can just accept what comes with that when her ass is outed for the racist she is. To.Hell.With.Her.Racist.Ass. Point.Blank.PERIOD.

And Christian Cooper must seriously need yet another reality check because his Black ass is still above ground when this racist bitch was hellbent on his ass becoming worm food and yet, he wants to wax and wane over her alleged plight of receiving “death threats” when she was trying her damn best to cause his death. That shit right there beats all. For the love of !!!!! White women are no less lethal to us than their male counterparts and why dumb as all hell, Black men like this here Christian Cooper just cannot seem to figure the shit out, just boggles the mind!

What Was Achieved By All The Marching And Protesting By Dr. King And Others?

 

A few years ago, I wrote a poem about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and that poem elicited some comments that basically intimated that Dr. King and all the others who were part of the Civil Rights struggle actually made no gains, period. Now, we can argue over it all day and all night as to whether or not Dr. King and crew were successful in their endeavors, but one thing I would like you to do is to continue reading and decide for yourself. And I will give Dr. King one thing, he tried….. something. Whether or not it was the right thing? You tell me.

Of Dr. King, We Are Just So Proud!

Of Dr. King, we are just so proud.
That man, he always drew a crowd.
He paved the way to a much brighter day.
His dream is alive in every way.

Tamir Rice is here to tell his story.
And Sandra Bland has no need to ever worry,
that her life will be snuffed out in a cell,
because Dr. King, he rang the freedom bell.

Michael Brown is in college where he belongs.
Eric Garner is in church singing spiritual songs.
Walter Scott is still driving down the street.
Freddie Gray is sitting down to a meal to eat.

They all owe their lives to Dr. King.
He said, “Let freedom ring! Let freedom ring!”
On the mountaintop, he saw through space and time.
And yet, they killed him while he was in his prime.

We thank him for the debt he willingly paid,
and for all the sacrifices he and his family made.
But what we will never know for certain,
is how he would react when they finally raise the curtain,
on a show that is a tragedy of the darkest kind,
and where Blacks are still left so far behind.
This play will not have a happy ending,
for its ending is just like its beginning.

Behold, the face of slavery is still Black.
And as in days of old, we are under attack.
But a man had a dream for which he died.
Was it all for naught? I’ll let you decide!

I want you to take some time to reflect on the question I posed. “Was it all for naught?” If Black people have made so many gains in the decades since the Civil Rights Movement, then where are they? If we as a people have ‘moved’ forward, then where are the results? #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Give me a break! If we as a people had moved, there would be no need for the #BLACKLIVESMATTER Movement, now would there? The incarceration rate for Black men is off the charts. Millions of Black people live in deep poverty and a ridiculously high number of them are Black children. Millions of Black people are jobless, homeless and hungry and lack healthcare. But here we are, about to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. Celebrate what, I ask you? Tell me! What is there to celebrate? Staggering unemployment figures for Black youth and young adults? A homelessness epidemic? Mass incarceration? A school-to-prison pipeline? Out-of-control racist KKKops brutalizing and murdering unarmed Black people? Grand Juries that refuse to hand down indictments on racist thugs with badges? Gun violence in Black communities that are so impoverished as to be likened to 3rd world nation conditions?

And yet the ‘whites’ sit back and gleefully point the finger at what is going down in communities of color and point to how ‘violent they are when they know why. Whites know that this is all done by design, but it is so easy for them to live in their little ‘white bread’ world and hurl invectives and “I told you sos” when ‘whites’ are hell bent on gentrifying neighborhoods that once housed Black people because the suburbs was once the place to be if you were ‘white’. You sit somewhere with your holier-than-thou attitudes as though your shit don’t stink. You shamelessly and callously wish death on a group of people who were not responsible for being dragged to this hellhole you call, America. You strut around like proud peacocks, puffing your chests out and pretending that you’re not rotten filth when you are actually worse than that. And you have the unmitigated gall to pretend to acknowledge Dr. King with your phony ass displays of righteous indignation over the brutal treatment he received at the hands of you ‘whites’. You have the nerve to speak his name, to post his “I Have A Dream” speech as though you ever did a thing to help bring his dream to fruition. You’ve done everything possible to see to it that his dream was never realized and you are not fit to read his name, much less speak it. Why you have not burst into flames upon speaking his name is a complete and utter mystery to me because all that should be left of you is ‘white’ ash!

The above is what I also posted along with the poem and next, I am going to post a comment about this particular post and my response.

I’ve always looked at MLK with curious eye because my parent were both Black Panthers when I was growing up and Dr. King was almost forbidden in my house. I only saw him as an on bent knee begging white people for some table scraps and to please not hit us anymore. Though growing up, I’ve come to understand him a bit better and my only thought now about the man is, “praying has brought Black peoples nothing but dirty knees and empty pockets.”

shelbycourtland’s response:

HLJ, this isn’t so much about me revering Dr. King as it is about exposing the blatant and outrageous hypocrisy of the ‘whites’. They are the very ones who go on and on about Dr. King’s ‘dream’ when it is quite obvious that they gave not a damn for the man nor his dream. They spout useless rhetoric each and every time the holiday in his name comes around and that is all they do. And while they are doing this, the continuation of enslavement of Black people continues, the continuation of the Negro status as that of 3rd class ‘citizen’ continues. We aren’t even tolerated in this shithole. We are incarcerated and murdered and yet the ‘whites’ go on and on about how thankful Blacks should be since we are supposedly living in the ‘greatest nation on earth’. I fucking beg to differ with that assessment. Black people are a people without a country. We are enslaved in a system that is corrupt to its core and is filled with racist filth and we are expected to subjugate ourselves to criminals of the worst kind.

Dr. King was but a tool and he was used to put down any attempt at an insurrection, a rebellion or a revolution. The ‘whites’ condoned the actions of Dr. King because he was their namby-pamby house Negro; the same as Barack Obama and all the rest of the coon head sell-outs that bow and scrape to the ‘white’ motherfuckers and lick their boots clean while scrabbling for their table scraps at the same time. I am not giving any accolades to Dr. King because he was no revolutionary, he was a stooge. My poem is a sarcastic and antonymous portrayal of Dr. King. That is why I stated that because of Dr. King, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Michael Brown and Walter Scott and so many others have him to ‘thank’ for their lives. My point is to also show how far we have NOT come even with these so-called ‘movements’ that are merely fake assed props that are put in place to give Black people the illusion that they are actually doing something constructive to put a stop to the genocide of them by the ‘whites’. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Dr. King was just a figurehead, a prop; complete with suit and tie and bible. He was the ‘white’ mans house nigger and he did a fine of job of spreading the ‘white’ man’s propaganda of telling Black people to go about effecting change, all peaceful like. And when his usefulness was over, they fucking killed him just to show that a gun is aimed at us at ALL times because we are still their property! Fuck ’em!

I thank you for your comment.

And another great comment I thought I should add.

Good post. A lot of us at least have some idea of the real deal with him but too many don’t. They could start looking at what really happened with the march on Washington. They should ask themselves why do we only hear of one person from that era? I also think someone else wrote most of his famous speeches? While he stayed with mostly the same approach, Dr. King had doubts about a lot of what he had said earlier before his death.

How long will we keep marching? Those of us who are marching need to stop. When will we get to the “Dream”?

Is this another white Jesus thing? To be fair, there were black Christians who pretty much can’t be criticized but his approach seemed to be pulled straight from parts of the Bible that even those who believe in the BIble find hard to justify(I myself don’t believe in those passages or the books that contained them).

shelbycourtland’s response:

They can consider Dr. King to have been a figurehead, a Civil Rights leader, a scapegoat or what have you, but his sole purpose was to misdirect Black people’s anger away from fucking shit up but instead focused it on ‘peacefully’ marching down the goddamn street of every pothole filled city in this shithole. You don’t hear the ‘whites’ screaming and jumping up and down about setting aside a day in which to honor Malcolm X. And you won’t! Malcolm X was not going on and on about some ‘peaceful’ this and ‘peaceful’ that. He had some harsh words for those vile ‘white’ shits that have firmly planted their boot on our Black ass and refuse to lift it.

Malcolm X was a revolutionary who believed in violent resistance, he believed in getting things done ‘by any means necessary’. That is why he said, “It’s got to be the ballot or the bullet.” The ballot ain’t worked. And we ALL fucking know what it would take but the revolutionaries of the ’60s are either dead or still locked up and so we just dutifully continue with the useless ass marches and protests with signs dating back 50 years when not a goddamn thing is going to change simply because we are holding up a sign. What has #BLACKLIVESMATTER accomplished? Not a goddamn thing!

Thank you for your comment N.S.

As I have stated before, peruse this content to your heart’s content and then think about the state that Black Amerikkka is in today and you tell me, did ALL of that marching and protesting lead to ANY gains? And if so, how so? Where are they? Black people are more asleep today than than they were in the  60s thanks to dumb ass rap music, pretend beefs among so-called Black celebrities, Youtube madness, Twitter and Facebook mess and the like is endless. There is only moaning and whining coming from Black Amerikkka when Black people do eventually look up and realize how fucked we are that is until another distraction down the pike; another Black Panther Movie or Madea bullshit movie from the likes of Tyler Perry’s faggot ass! That shit, we don’t need. Hell! Damn near half of Black Amerikkka has no idea why today is being ‘celebrated’. Check this shit out!

Just skip to the five minute mark when she says, “The kids are out of school on Monday and we don’t even know why.” Also, her sixteen year old daughter did not even know why she is out of school today. Seriously???!!!! Too busy staring down at shit on a phone, most likely is the reason and the mother is just too dizzy for words.

This is what we have to work with these days and it is quite obvious, that we have nothing to work with. So you tell me, what was it all for? Cluelessness? Ignorance? Gluttony? Youtube channels? Twitter? Facebook?

Black Amerikkka is dealing with rabid racism, gentrification, income inequality, mass incarceration, a school-to-prison pipeline, disparities in healthcare, child poverty, a homeless epidemic, crime infested neighborhoods, drugs and gangs and prostitution that is out-of-control and the list of the like is endless and yet, here we are ‘celebrating’ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. For what? And in less than two weeks, we shall be expected to ‘celebrate ‘Black History Month’. Why? Because I have just described  ‘Black History’ up to present day and so what is there to celebrate? You tell me. I can’t wait.

 

 

Youtubers Are Going Crazy Over New Youtube Rules Coming Out In 2020 Thanks To A Hefty FTC Fine Against Google/Youtube

Apparently, there was some sort of law on the books, COPPA, that was being ignored by Google, the owner of Youtube.

Google to pay $170 million for violating kids’ privacy on YouTube

Google will pay a record $170 million fine to settle a lawsuit filed by federal and state authorities that charged the internet giant with violating children’s privacy on YouTube, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) said Wednesday.

The settlement requires Google and YouTube to pay $136 million to the FTC and $34 million to New York state for violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, or COPPA, by collecting personal information from children without their parents’ consent.

The FTC and the New York attorney general alleged in a complaint that YouTube gathered children’s personal information by using “cookies,” or personal identifiers, that track users online. According to the suit, YouTube earned millions of dollars by using the information to deliver targeted ads to kids.

Also, it has been stated that the FTC will also fine individual Youtubers for each and every single video that they post that is in violation of COPPA, over $42,000. Ouch!

Hundreds of thousands if not millions of people have taken to Youtube to earn a living. If anyone can remember, I posted a blog about multiple Youtubers making videos of themselves eating copious amounts of food for a living and they also encouraged their children to participate. I wonder what is going to happen to those content creators. But I do know one thing, there are many Youtubers whose panties are in a bunch thanks to the fact that Google completely ignored COPPA for years and now that the FTC has caught up with them thanks in part to child advocacy groups, the fur is about to fly starting in January 2020 as the new rules will apply.

People, seriously! Did you honestly think that the gravy train was going to never come to a halt? People had been asking me to start a Youtube channel and speak about the issues on a Youtube channel that I have blogged about. Well, I knew better and that is why I never even thought to start a Youtube channel because I don’t live in the moment. I’m a space woman. I see waaaaaay down the goddamn road and I saw this shit coming. Hell! If people weren’t so dumbed down and stupid, it was right there in front of us all, but because most of us have our heads down, staring at a smartphone and most likely watching a Youtube video, they couldn’t see the forest or the trees.

How could ANY of you think that this technology that we have been encouraged to embrace would be for our benefit? Would better our lives? People have been encouraged not to greater heights of achievements in helping humanity, but have been encouraged to act like jackasses, fools, gluttons, game idiots and assholes. And if anyone says that thanks to Youtube, videos surfaced showcasing outright murders of American descendants of slaves has helped American descendants of slaves, then how so? Because even with video evidence of Eric Garner getting the life choked out of him, what was the outcome of that? Nothing. What happened with evidence of Mike Brown lying in the streets like a dog for hours with not even a sheet to cover him after having been shot dead by a KKKop? Nothing. What happened after video evidence of multiple whites calling the KKKops on American descendants of slaves for barbecuing, selling bottled water, swimming in a pool, doing their job of checking homes for fire code violations, sitting inside a Starbucks and the list is endless? Video evidence of this shit does not matter. It never will. Whites know what the hell they do to us and them seeing video proof of other whites doing the same thing, does not a damn thing. It has changed NOTHING. So who the fuck needs Youtube? Yes, people were making their little coins on Youtube, but as we ALL know, nothing stays the same. The only thing constant is change, so have a backup plan for the backup plan or we’re screwed. And though many of us are trying to ignore the fact, the vast majority of us are indeed, screwed.

I have not been blogging because, once again, I have gone all across America trying to find some other place to live and I am right back, once again, at square one. The shit I’ve seen would curl your toes. I even spent a night in a homeless shelter to see if my suspicions about those shelters was still on point and, yes indeed, they are.

I was in Minnesota and spent a night at The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center
1010 Currie Ave N
Minneapolis, MN 55403
(612) 767-3100

This is what I was supposed to read and I pretended to not understand and so I was given this paper by Salvation Army staff.

This is the back of that.

All ‘guests’ must sign this form.

And if you go to the link, it sounds like the homeless hit pay dirt. Not so fast. The website states that there is a hot meal served. Nope. There was no hot meal served. The site states that this is a place to “begin the healing process.” Nope! When I saw the prison like cot that was supposed to be my bed for the night, I balked. I’m like, “Where is the disinfectant?” None was available. The ‘mattress’ was not even an inch thick. It was clearly older than the ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’ and underneath it was steel. I gingerly sat down on the thing and my legs started screaming because the steel edges of that thing was biting into my legs. I had to get up and sit in my walker. I sat like that for hours until I was so tired, I decided to try and lie down on that ‘thing’. When I tell you that my body hurt everywhere from being on something so hard, it should have been illegal, I am SO fucking not kidding. By the time, I struggled to get up, the cops were coming in the room, bringing in a homeless woman who had been riding the light rail. And in the room, there was four bunk ‘beds’ and so eight people to a room. I saw young and old, Black and white and one Hispanic. I smelled odors that I’d never smelled before. I cannot post pictures because I don’t want the nice ladies who were in my room to be ogled over, but I am telling you if you don’t believe me, I dare you to go, undercover, into one of those so-called ‘christian’ otherwise known as faith-based homeless shelters and tell me that what you found was so very different and better than what I found. The next morning, my cousin came to get me and he burst out laughing because he said that never had he seen bags like those underneath my eyes. He said the bags underneath my eyes were touching my toes. I told him that the women in the shelter told me that clearly I was not cut out for living like that and wondered what I was going to do. I then came clean to them and told them that I had a home, but I couldn’t stand where I was living and was trying to see if I could tough things out and live rough if I had to. They told me to get on the fastest thing smoking back to where I came from and that is exactly what I did. I traded my apartment for a hotel room and then traded my hotel room for a homeless shelter and I am telling you that I now have much more of an appreciation for those who can live rough because I’m telling you, it ain’t easy. It ain’t easy at all.

One Black lady told me that she had been in that homeless shelter for a year. I was stunned, STUNNED, I say because I could not make it to night two. She told me that she thought that she was finally going to get an apartment because a social worker had taken her to view an apartment the day before. I told her how happy I was for her and that I sincerely hope that she gets out of there. The next morning, on the loudspeaker, we were told to start packing up to leave at 8:55a.m. I saw multiple women with walkers slowing heading down the hall towards the elevator. Also, one had a leg that was obviously mutilated and it was curved outward and she was struggling to walk. I could not believe that they were putting her out of the shelter for the day to walk around like that. But the other ladies in the same room as myself had told me that it matters not what condition you are in, you are put out. And that the only way that you can stay is to get a slot on the fourth floor. We were on the 3rd floor.

The fourth floor is for those who have an income and who don’t have a problem when the Salvation Army takes 30% of their income and in exchange for really, no better conditions. The women just get to come and go as they please until curfew which I believe is at 8:00pm. They get three meals a day, but they are still sleeping eight to a room on a cot with the same type of ‘mattress’ that I had and they must also use communal bathrooms. There was one bathroom for one entire hallway and I lost count of the rooms along that hallway. There were two showers inside the bathroom with just a filthy curtain over the opening of each. One woman was washing her clothing in one of the sinks even though there were two washers and two dryers in a different area. She had no money to spend on the washers and dryers. The next time you want to put some money into those red kettles outside of Walmart and grocery stores and department stores, re-read this blog because that money is not going into helping the homeless. But don’t take my word for it. Go to one of those Salvation Army homeless shelters in a town near you, that’ll make a believer out of you!

Those places are foul as hell and are worse than prisons. And it’s not just drug addicts and drunks who are homeless. I spoke with a woman who had retired from the Minnesota school system, had a pension and was receiving Social Security and she was still homeless because senior communities claim that she was making $400 over what she could to get housed. Of course she was an American descendant of slaves and so that explains the TRUE and REAL reason why she was sitting all up in a homeless shelter. Whites will make up any excuse to keep American descendants of slaves out on the streets. That poor woman was actually saving up money so that she could afford a hotel room for a week over the holidays so that she could finally have a bathroom to herself and a decent bed. When I left that homeless shelter, I felt two inches tall because I had not been thankful for the fact that though I hate where I live, I had a home to go to and a bed that was not like that in the homeless shelter which was worse than what you’d find inside a prison hell.

And so while those who have been playing games and eating like there was no tomorrow on Youtube for a living and who are now screeching and wailing that the shit’s about to come to an abrupt end, there are people who have already bottomed out and so if you are about to bottom out when Youtube and the FTC demonitizes your channels and close you down, it will be your own fault because you refused to look up to see where you were headed, into homelessness and foul ass so-called ‘faith based’ homeless shelters. The future is now. The future is dark. And we are all fucked!

I don’t think this guy would make it in a homeless shelter. He looks too soft by far. But there he is bemoaning the fact that Youtube is on its way out and Youtube is his source of income.

And here are more who are going to be impacted.

I’d love to know what these ‘professional mukbangers’ are going to do when Youtube becomes defunct.

There are bunches of them.

Youtubers, you have until January 2020 to figure it out! That’s not that far away. Enjoy the holidays!

Here We Fucking Go Again! Black Woman In Texas Killed In her Own Home By A White Cop! (Who Resigned Before He Was To Be Fired)

 

What the hell??!! I’m sitting somewhere dealing with my own problems as they relate to racist ass whites and yet, I’m just finding out about a young Black woman whose neighbor called the police NON-EMERGENCY number for a welfare check on his neighbor whose door happened to be ajar longer than he thought it should have been and the cops arrive and she promptly gets shot dead for being in her own home. Here’s an idea, neighbor who got your neighbor shot dead, next time, mind your own damn business! I wouldn’t call the cops on my next door neighbors if they were going the fuck off because calling the cops will only make a bad situation, lethal.

When will we ever get the message? Don’t fucking call the cops on your goddamn neighbors. If you don’t hear any screaming, yelling, fighting, banging, shooting, then leave your neighbors the fuck alone! And even if you hear ALL of that shit, leave it the fuck alone, Black folks! You fucking should know better! You must want us killed if you call the cops on us!

When I was in Baltimore, MD and my cousin was going through a mental breakdown, I called the ’24-hour mental health crisis line’ and they told me to call the cops. I said, “And get us both shot? No fucking thank you!” They told me to call and ask for “The GOOD cops!” I’m like, “Are you fucking serious??!!! There ain’t no GOOD cops, bitch! Shut the fuck up!” And I hung up and dealt as best I could, but both my cousin and myself lived to see another day thanks to me not taking the advice from that worthless bitch on the phone. But as usual, I digress!

Former Fort Worth Police Officer Aaron Dean Charged With Murder

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The Fort Worth Police officer who shot and killed a woman in her home early Saturday morning has been booked into the Tarrant County Jail and charged with murder.

Bond has not been set.

Aaron Dean, who resigned from the Fort Worth Police Department earlier Monday, shot and killed Atatiana Jefferson in her home while responding to a welfare check this weekend has resigned from the department before he could be fired.

Body-cam video was also released that showed the events leading up to Jefferson’s death. The video shows the officer shining a flashlight into a window and shouting at Jefferson to put her hands up. Not even a full second later, she was shot through the window.

The article also states that the officer who shot her had perceived a threat and drew his weapon while checking her home. He fired once, striking her. He had been with the department since April 2018.

How in the hell was this woman a threat to this racist cop when she was in her own home, minding her business and getting the cops called on her by a neighbor for a welfare check that she obviously didn’t need and could most definitely have done without? She didn’t call the cops reporting a domestic disturbance or an armed intruder and so why would this racist ass cop state that he perceived a threat when Atatiana Jefferson did not even have a clue that racist cops were surrounding her home? She couldn’t pose a threat and that racist bastard fired the shot that killed that woman not even a second after shouting at her to “put her hands up.” And he never even stated that he was a cop. What.The.Fuck. Why should she put her hands up in her own fucking home and how was she supposed to know that a racist cop was barking orders at her when he never even identified himself as a racist cop?

Where is Al Sharpton? Where is Jesse Jackson? Where is Attorney Lee Merritt? He has another high profile case to take on. That man, Lee Merritt, never rests because cases of this type just keep piling up on his desk. And I’m sure that Sharpton and Jackson are going to lead the protests. Everyone got their worn out sneakers ready? Got your lame ass dusty as all hell protest sign ready? Got your vocal chords ready to shout, “No justice! No peace! Stop the racist police!”

That beautiful 28-year old woman is dead, shot right in front of her nephew just because her neighbor called the cops for a welfare check and she ends up dead less than a second after a cop barks orders at her to “Put her hands up” in her own damn house. Do you remember that it only took a cop, two seconds to gun down Tamir Rice? Remember him? And what about seven year old Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley-Jones, who was asleep in her home when she was shot by a racist cop who got not a day in jail for killing that innocent child. And what about Michael Brown? Eric Garner? Walter Scott? Freddie Gray? Sandra Bland? I read the other day that cops have murdered almost 800 people since the year started, 32 were women and all the fuck we do is talk about how we are going to take to the streets and protest, AGAIN! The dust hasn’t even cleared from the Botham Shem Jean/Amber Guyger trial and now this! What.The.Hell.

We are sitting ducks and all we can do about this shit is print a sign, get some walking shoes and scream into the night for a night and then when the cops send some tear gas into the air, back to our fucked up homes we go! Damn! That’ll show ’em! No, you stupid fucks! They are showing us and we are just turning the other ass cheek so that they can shoot that one too. I’m fucking done! What more is there left to say??!!! Oh, my bad! We’re ALL waiting on GEEZUS! Yeah! Send your fucking prayers to the family! Tell ’em “God will make a way somehow!” The white man’s god ain’t OUR god! Get out of those fucked up churches that are brainwashing you, idiots! The white man’s ‘god’ ain’t fucking stopped none of this shit! You may as well get to waiting for Santa Claus to do something about this shit if you plan on waiting for the white man’s made up, fairy tale ‘god’. Damn! You Black motherfuckers who believe in that bullshit are straight up dumb as hell! To hell with you stupid motherfuckers!

The Extraordinary Courage of Black People

 

It takes an extraordinary amount of courage to get up every morning knowing that you face an enemy who hates you more than you can ever know and that their hatred of you is so intense,  they are consumed by it. And yet, descendants of slaves do so every single morning…or night, depending on when your ‘day’ starts. As heavy as my heart is every single time I open my eyes, I open them and get up to face the next round of challenges that I must face to get me through another day, to run the gauntlet of whites who bombard me with their unrepentant racism, bigotry, hatred and prejudice because I cannot change the color of my skin.

I shake my head in disbelief when on days set aside to honor Black men and women throughout history who have made the ultimate sacrifice, whites insist on pretending to laud their achievements even as they seek to undermine their efforts by taking us backwards in time. And when we peacefully protest the murder of those who look like us at the hands of racist police, we are viewed as thankless and ungrateful because whites believe that those of us who are in America by virtue of slavery, should be grateful that we are here since it is their belief that if we were in Africa, our plight would be a million times worse. Their arrogant and callous disregard for us never wanes since they refuse to accept us as ‘human’ thanks to their enslavement of our ancestors. We are castigated by them every single day if we cannot take nothing and build upon it. We are held in contempt by them because our slave ancestors had no business to hand down to us. We are held in contempt because we own no land on which to build banks and hospitals, schools and grocery stores.

The whites look to areas in the inner cities where violence is a daily occurrence and where drug deals go down and prostitution for drugs is an epidemic and blame us for what ails our communities as though we have ships and planes to bring drugs into our communities. We are the scapegoats for why cuts to social programs are made as though it is a punishment to us for our existence even though whites make use of social programs more so than we do. We were at one time, self-reliant in the 70s and 80s, owning homes and businesses, but because whites always need a scapegoat and must always have the upper hand, our homes and businesses were taken from us through imminent domain and other nefarious laws that were put on the books to disrupt the social structure of Black communities, nationwide as we were herded into subsidized, substandard government housing in projects and ‘ghettos’. Desegregation was not a win for the Black family. It was a loss and we have been losing from the time our stolen ancestors were dragged ashore.

Our Black brothers and sisters are incarcerated inside the new slave pens and for all those who succumb to death at the white man’s hands, millions more still fight to survive. Many are innocent who have been imprisoned for decades and upon their exoneration, do not hold grudges because we are extraordinary people. Whites know this and they hate us for it. Their slave patrols were formed to round us up for existing and to herd us back to the plantation because whites think we never should have been allowed off the plantation and they have made sure that we know that we never really did. We see bars everywhere we turn. It matters not if we are locked behind actual bars, they are there all the same and they are not invisible to us. They place barriers and roadblocks before us to intimidate us and to keep us from coming together as a community and to realize our own potential.

So that we don’t get any ideas about ‘freedom’, we are shown time and time again that whites will stop at nothing, even murder to make sure that our place is somewhere underneath their boot or the ground. We need only look to the headlines, daily to see examples of ways they use to instill fear in us which is why we are shot dead by their uniformed slave patrols who are never held accountable for their actions against us, including murder. They take to the streets with hoods and sheets and guns to show that they can gun us down anywhere at anytime and that there is nothing that we can do about it, and yet, we survive. We carry on. We keep getting up. We live despite them and in spite of them. Yes, many of our brothers and sisters have fallen, but those of us who live are a testament to the courage it takes to bury our fallen brothers and sisters and live on, carrying their memory to the mountaintop as we look over and see that all is not lost. One day, we shall come into our own.

The white man’s days are numbered. He IS his possessions; his things. And like all man made things, they never survive the test of time.  Their multi-million dollar beach houses are being swept away. They are forced to flee ever inland by the very arrogance that led them to burn this planet up and still expect an ocean view. Their mountain get-away homes are being burnt to the ground. Their island paradises are being covered in igneous rock or are under water. Their businesses are flooded, their SUVs floating down the street, their boats swept out to sea and their very skin is suffering from the effects of a sun that kisses and deepens ours. In this time of heaviness in our hearts for another of our brother who has fallen thanks to the racism, prejudice, bigotry and hatred that defines whites, we shall carry our memory of him to the mountaintop and show him that he did not die in vain. We, who live will continue to get up and face another day of hatred, racism, prejudice and bigotry and we will not be defeated because we are humanity, defined and we have the extraordinary courage of Black people. To ALL my Black brothers and sisters, though our days may seem dark and our nights even darker, believe me, those who persecute us for what we have no control over are going to reap what they have sown in ways never before imagined. Keep the faith throughout these dark time.

I write this to honor ALL my fallen brothers and sisters and to especially honor Botham Shem Jean. I wish you bon voyage, my brother!
