I Spit On YOUR Celebrations!

 

Independence Hell!

 

Why should I love a country that has never accepted me?
I’ll never wave your goddamn flag and pretend that I am free.

I spit on your celebrations and I will never play your games.
Don’t think I’ll kiss your ass while my people are in chains.

You hypocrites make me sick with your pretensions and your lies.
Then you drape yourselves in sheets and have the nerve to moralize.

You celebrate your freedom while destroying the homes of others.
Independence is only for you as the rest of the world discovers.

Your bombs that burst in air are now destroying all mankind.
As the empire marches on, the world gets redefined.

What bravery you display by the dropping of your drones.
And you littered foreign lands with innocent peoples bones.

Celebrate the fourth and forget the shit you’ve done.
When your bombs are busy bursting, we know you’re having fun.

Fuck this 4th of July bullshit!!

What the hell is there to celebrate? Kops murdering innocent women in their sleep? I guess we’ve ALL forgotten Breonna Taylor. Is she here to ‘celebrate’ the 4th? What about Sandra Bland? What about Aiyana Stanley-Jones? Renisha McBride? Tanisha Anderson? Yvette Smith? Miriam Carey? Shelly Frey? Darnisha Harris? Malissa Williams? Alesia Thomas? Shantel Davis? Rekia Boyd?  Shereese Francis? Tarika Wilson? Kendra James?

And what about Kathryn Johnston who was 92 when she was killed in a botched “no knock” drug raid by Atlanta police that was revealed to be based on false information. Officers broke down her security gate and without warning entered her home. They MURDERED A 92 YEAR OLD BLACK WOMAN!!! 92 years old!!! Most of us don’t even see 65 and yet Kathryn Johnston made it to 92, only to be murdered by the same type of shit that is still in evidence today because that same type of shit, MURDERED BREONNA TAYLOR just this year!!! What the fuck is there to celebrate???!!!

Alberta Spruill also died after police conducted a “no knock” raid at her home in error. Officers broke through her door and threw a concussion grenade while Spruill, a city employee, was getting ready for work. She died of a heart attack two hours later. The kops breaking down Alberta Spruill’s door caused that Black woman to have a heart attack and for what? Another “no knock” raid that wasn’t even about her. The kops got the shit wrong AGAIN! But in reality, they more than likely did NOT get the shit wrong, they are hell bent on killing us, that is goddamn obvious!! But’ I’m supposed to be in the mood to celebrate some 4th of July goddamn nonsense bullshit???!!! Not fucking ever!!!

From 7 to 92 years of age, Black girls and women have been dying at the hands of racist kops and you sick, white fucks think that I’m going to celebrate YOUR bullshit?!! Are you stupid, depraved lunatics for real??!!! I don’t give a damn about your lame ass attempts to act like you’ve been protesting our deaths at the hands of your fucked up KKK kin! Fuck YOU! And fuck your pretending ass bullshit! I’m not buying your fake ass attempts to get us to believe that you’ve changed from the racist filth you’ve ALWAYS been. You’ll never change because your ass defines RACISM.

All the fuck I see on my reader is some celebrate America’s independence bullshit! Fuck that! You fucking whites are running to the beaches, the bars, the barbershops and some more shit dragging COVID-19 all over the goddamn place and so we are supposed to join with you in celebrating the fact that you feel that no one can tell you what the fuck to do while you spread COVID-19 to us all? Seriously???!!! Fuck YOU and YOUR 4th of July fucking bullshit whites! Drop fucking dead already…ON THE 4TH OF JULY!!!!

Racism: In And Against China by Margaret Kimberley, Senior Columnist At Black Agenda Report

First of all, let me start off by stating that I disagree with most of what Margaret Kimberley is saying.

Freedom Rider: Racism In and Against China

The COVID-19 pandemic has resuscitated the old “yellow peril” canard to its fullest extent, revealing deep xenophobia and racist intent against China. Black people must walk a fine line concerning any discussion of the People’s Republic of China at this juncture. The obviously racist acts carried out against African migrants in that country can’t be ignored and are rightly condemned.

Let me focus on this for a minute.

Black people must walk a fine line concerning any discussion of the People’s Republic of China at this juncture.

I would love for Margaret Kimberley to explain to me why “Black people must walk a fine line concerning any discussion of the People’s Republic of China.” Tell me, what do Black people owe the Chinese? We owe them for what? What have they done besides take our money, that we gladly give to them, for fake nails, fake weaves, wigs and extensions and fake ass food? But what are the Chinese buying from Black people? I invite Margaret Kimberley to come on up in here and explain to me why Black people must walk a fine line concerning any discussion of the People’s Republic of China over some supposed racism that the Chinese are decrying.

But while racism exists in China, American racism is being used against China. There is a long history of hatred from the days of the Chinese Exclusion Act, to the demonization of “red” China, and now president Xi Jinping labeled as an authoritarian enemy.

That long history of “American racism’ against China has absolutely NOTHING to do with Black people in America. The Chinese do not even experience racism in America if you put what they claim to experience up against what we are dealing with from the whites and from the CHINESE. Talk about that Margaret Kimberley.

Talk about this! Explain this Margaret Kimberley!

Why do Black people like Margaret Kimberley go to bat for some shits that hate our guts? What is wrong with us? Instead of Margaret Kimberley using her platform to speak on reparations, gentrification, the school-to-prison pipeline, mass incarceration, Black people and COVID-19 contractions and deaths, she wants to wax and wane about the U.S. government’s long standing racism aimed at the Chinese. Well, answer me this question. If the U.S. government is so racist towards the Chinese, then why are there so many wealthy Chinese-owned businesses in the U.S.? How are the Chinese experiencing racism? The Chinese are not the faces of poverty. The Chinese are not the faces of the homeless. The Chinese are not the faces of the incarcerated. The Chinese are not the faces of the gentrified. The Chinese are not the faces of the drug addicted. The Chinese are not the faces of the prostitutes who are prostituting their bodies due to a drug habit. The Chinese are not the faces of the school-to-prison pipeline. The Chinese are not the faces of health care disparities. The Chinese are not the face of income disparities and the list is endless. Black people are and yet, Black people are supposed to “walk a fine line concerning any discussion of the People’s Republic of China?” What the hell for? There is not a damn thing that we have done TO the Chinese. That shit’s not on us and I am seriously trying to figure out why Margaret Kimberley wrote that bullshit.

If the Chinese are having ANY problems here in America, then they know what to do. If the Chinese are experiencing ANY racism in America, how so? Because no one can drive down a goddamn street without passing by a Chinese restaurant. No one in the few remaining Black communities can NOT drive by a Chinese-owned ‘hood’ beauty supply store because they are on every corner. The Chinese have cornered the market on beauty supply products for Black women and so what the hell else are we supposed to do to help the Chinese? They’ve gotten every single damn dollar from us that didn’t go to rent or the light bill and so, AGAIN, I ask, “What the hell does Black people owe the Chinese?” Not a goddamn thing and I’m about sick and damn tired of hearing that Black people need to tread lightly over some supposed racism aimed at the Chinese when they ALL hold passports and can drag their asses out of here any time they damn well please. No one is holding them back. The thing is, they want to continue to make bank off those Chinese restaurants and beauty supply stores that cater to Black women. They want to continue to make bank off those nail salons that are owned by them and the Vietnamese. And so why did Margaret Kimberley say nothing about the fact that Black people experiencing racism in America is THE problem, not some supposed racism that the Chinese claim to be experiencing? Who was even looking cross-eyed at the Chinese before coronavirus reared its viral head? No one. Everyone was heading inside a Chinese restaurant or were getting delivery from a Chinese restaurant. Black women were heading inside those beauty supply stores in droves which meant that the Chinese were making bank. Are Black Americans making bank from the Chinese? Hell fucking no! Are ANY Chinese frequenting ANY business that is owned by Black people? Hell fucking no! And so, AGAIN….what the fuck do Black people owe the Chinese and why should we give two goddamns over what the Trump Administration has to say about China? Black Americans did NOT call the coronavirus, that “Chinese virus.” Trump did and so don’t now turn around and tell Black people that we must tread softly for fear of appearing…appearing…what? What the fuck have we done TO the Asians? Not a goddamn thing. We have done plenty FOR the Asians because our hard earned dollars also contributed to making those fuckers extremely wealthy.

And as for what the Chinese are doing to the Africans who dragged their asses to China? What’s that shit to do with Black folks in America? That shit’s on them. The Africans need to sit their ass down in their own African countries and get them sorted out and also throw those Chinese motherfuckers out as well as ALL others that are not Black assed, that’s what the Africans need to do and they won’t have to experience racism at the hands of the Chinese in China. They’ve got no damn business over there in the first goddamn place and so I don’t even want to hear about how they are suffering racist shit aimed at them by the Chinese.

Over here in America, the Chinese are racist as all hell towards Black Americans and that shit is on display, DAILY! But what has Margaret Kimberley said about that? Crickets are chirping. The Chinese here in America have nothing but contempt and hatred for Black Americans and that is a fact. I have seen the Chinese kick a Black woman like she was a dog because she was suspected of stealing their cheap ass shit. If she was suspected of stealing their cheap ass shit, then their responsibility was to call the kkkops, not kick the woman to hell and back. That shows nothing but contempt, hatred and disrespect and yet, I’m supposed to “walk a fine line concerning any discussion of the People’s Republic of China?” Ain’t fucking happening. According to ALL reports, Black people are “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths” and where did that shit originate? Why, China, of course. And so we have them and this fucked up government to thank for that since the Chinese boarded planes and with the consent of this fucked up government dripped coronavirus all up in this shithole. And since Black people, for the most part, work menial jobs, who did not think that we would be contracting this virus…and in spades? And yet since the flu and many viruses originate in Asian countries, why should those Asians get off so easily? Why should folks tread lightly for them? No one treads lightly for Black Americans and Margaret Kimberley, you know this. So shut the hell up about us Black folks needing to shut up about what those Chinese motherfuckers have dripped over here and the resulting firestorm. We owe the Chinese NOT a goddamn thing!

Margaret Kimberley, you need to get your head out of your ass over this one because you are clearly in the goddamn dark and so your head must be up your ass! Maybe these pictures taken from this video I posted will help you to come up out of the dark!

That Chinese bastard kicked that Black woman like she was a fucking dog! And Margaret Kimberley has yet to say a damn thing about this. What the fuck do we owe the Chinese and why the fuck should we care what these whites and the Trump Administration say about their Chinese asses? We ain’t fucking been saying shit about those motherfuckers!

And here is more evidence of why Black people don’t owe the Chinese a goddamn thing! We should not even be patronizing their restaurants and stores!

Those yellow bastards are tagteaming that Black woman for suspected shoplifting. Even if she had shoplifted, the police were being called and were supposed to take care of the situation. I don’t know why Black women continue to patronize those yellow dogs.

And again!

I guess this is what a Chinese beatdown looks like. And yet Black people, according to Margaret Kimberley over at Black Agenda Report are supposed to stand in solidarity with THIS shit??!! Not fucking happening! Not with me at least. Fuck them! I don’t care if their shit NEVER reopens! It shouldn’t.

And again!

So yeah, Black folks! Margaret Kimberley at Black Agenda Report wants you to continue to patronize those fuckers and to respect that they are experiencing racism from the Trump Administration because of the “CHINESE VIRUS!” What the fuck virus is it? It came from China and so what the fuck should we call it? The “WUHAN GANG VIRUS?”

And again!

Look at that shit! Was ALL of that necessary over some cheap ass junk in a ‘hood’ beauty supply store? Seriously???!!! Getting choked over what? His suspicion of her stealing some fake ass eyelashes! Ain’t worth shit in those damn stores from what I could see from the video.

And this is what the Chinese motherfucker looks like that took it upon himself to kick a Black woman like she was a dog because he suspected her of stealing that cheap shit of theirs in those ‘hood’ beauty supply stores. If he does not like Black people, and the Chinese HATE Black people, then operate those fucking stores in white communities and see how fucking long they stay in business. The whites don’t want that shit. That’s why those Chinese fuckers don’t open up those shitty stores in white neighborhoods. Where would their customer base be? Exactly!

This is the Chinese bastard that kicked that Black woman and choked her over some cheap ass shit he suspected her of stealing. If that were the case, it was a matter for the police to decide. Not him. He had no right to treat that woman in that manner and only after this happened, were there calls from the neighborhood for Black women to boycott the store this fucker owns. That shit should have been shutdown for lack of Black customers long before this incident. We don’t need those racist Chinese. They need our fucking business.

And this is another reminder of what he fucking did to that Black woman. And he’s damn sure as hell, NOT sorry! He is just sorry someone taped that shit and it went viral!

Seriously!!! And the minute those stores are open, inside them, Black women will go. You fucking NEVER learn.

Never will you learn, and more’s the goddamn pity!

Look at that bastard kicking that Black woman, AGAIN. This is what Margaret Kimberley at Black Agenda Report thinks that we as Black people, should be defending against racism. Really???!!!

The day I defend Asians against racism is the day Donald Trump admits that he is a lying, egotistical, narcissistic, misogynistic, racist, bigoted asshole. So when that happens, then I will step in and decry racism against Asians. Asians ain’t experiencing a goddamn thing they don’t want to experience because if they were, then they could take their rich Asian asses on back to their own countries, but they won’t because they have got it too good over here.

I’d like Margaret Kimberley to take a look at the faces of the hungry who are lined up at food banks all across this shithole. She will NOT find a single Asian standing somewhere with cap in hand needing all up and down on some free food from a food bank. But is that the case with those who look like Margaret Kimberley? Need I even answer that? I didn’t fucking think so. But Margaret Kimberley thinks that Black folks in America should be overly concerned about some damn Asians and what Trump calls a damn virus. FUCK.THAT.SHIT. And to prove my point, here are some pictures of lines of people trying to get free food because they’re fucking broke!

Find one Chinese motherfucker standing there. I dare you. They don’t need to stand in the ‘bread line’ because thanks to THEIR virus, they’ve got plenty of kung pao chicken and shrimp fried rice to eat in their closed down restaurants. They can ride this virus shit out for years!

Need more proof? I’m always quite happy to oblige!

I don’t see any Asians in that damn food bank line! None! Nor are they considered to be “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths” in Amerikkka! Black people have been given that dubious distinction.
It looks like Black people are also “The Faces of Hunger” since there are many of us standing in the food bank line. I wonder has Margaret Kimberley seen this shit. But I guess even if she has, Black people are expected to feel the Asians nonexistent claims of racism against them. They can leave ANY TIME and take Margaret Kimberley’s stupid, clueless ass with them!

So, it would appear that even those Black folks who claim to be ‘woke’ ain’t ‘woke’ because Margaret Kimberley is not as ‘woke’ as she thinks if she believes that some damn racism that Asians are claiming to be victims of is problematic for them since they were not dragged to America like our ancestors were. Those Asians have prospered in America like Black folks never have and never will and so why we should bite our nails and wail and moan over NO plight of theirs, I will never know because beside us, the Asians don’t have a plight. I’ll save my nail biting, wailing and moaning over the plight of people who seriously have a plight; American descendants of slavery. Don’t get the shit twisted. The sky is not falling on the fucking Asians, but the damn sky sure as hell long since has fallen on our asses…and how!

Asians are kicking our ass in their beauty supply stores as well as choking and body slamming our asses, but they are NOT the faces of racism. They are NOT the faces of hunger. They are NOT the faces of poverty. They are NOT the faces of gentrification. Hell! The Asians are aiding and abetting the whites in gentrification. The Asians are not the faces of mass incarceration. They are NOT the faces of the school-to-prison pipeline. They are NOT the faces of health care disparities. They are NOT the faces of income disparities and just what the hell racism are Asians experiencing? Those bastards are rich. They own business after business after business. They live in their own, insulated, gated communities and so what bad shit are they experiencing? Not a damn thing! I don’t have a gnat’s ass worth of feelings of pity or solidarity with Asians. They don’t have a plight. They are NOT experiencing racism. They are just complaining because a virus that originated in Wuhan, China has made its way all across this planet and now that it has been declared a pandemic, all eyes have focused on China, and in my opinion, rightly so especially since this virus is impacting those who look like me since we are frontline workers. FUCK.THE.CHINESE. They are not to be pitied and they damn sure don’t need any pity from Black people. We shouldn’t even have enough pity to go around, as it is. Who the fuck is pitying American descendants of slavery? No damn body, that’s who and Margaret Kimberley at Black Agenda Report, you fucking know this! Someone, send this over to her stupid ass!

It Took Coronavirus To Get Water Turned On For Poor Black Residents Of Detroit While Rich Whites Party

In one of my older posts, I highlighted the glaring differences in Amerikkka and how there are two Amerikkkas; one for those of us who are descendants of people who were dragged to these shores and one for those who are descendants of those who dragged us to these shores. And so this is a continuation of that blog.

Her water was shut off because of unpaid bills. Then the coronavirus hit.

DETROIT — The cold winter months were grueling for Valaria Griffin. The city of Detroit shut off her water late last fall because of unpaid bills and a broken plumbing valve that she couldn’t afford to fix. Griffin, 55, was forced to rely on donated bottled water to drink, cook and bathe. She used space heaters to warm her home; without running water, the boiler didn’t work.

But now that we have been told to wash our hands and then wash our hands some more, the City of Detroit announced a water restart plan on March 9 to cover the cost of water restoration, limit residents’ payments to $25 a month and defer old water debts until the health crisis is over. The city, the state and the local plumbers’ union are covering the cost of home repairs needed to restore water.

Valaria Griffin owns her home and was working up until she was laid off from her job of 31 years for an insurance company in 2016 and due to her age, has been having a difficult time finding work. Unfortunately, paying bills does not end when a job does because if it did, Valaria Griffin would not be in the position she is in today; unable to get necessary plumbing work done and an inability to keep the water on. Ms. Griffin goes on to say, “You wouldn’t believe this is happening in a country that’s touted as a leader of the free world.”

Unfortunately Ms. Griffin, many of us who look like you can believe it because it is happening to too many of us who look like you. We are the face of poverty and it is ALL done by design. While mostly white spring breakers were busy drinking and partying while stating that “If I get corona, I get corona,” millions of Black Amerikkkans were just trying to survive amidst a pandemic that we take seriously because we have to. We don’t have the money to call up realtors in the Hamptons and head for ‘greener’ pastures. We don’t have the money to call up realtors and head for the desert or the mountains. Whites are taking to running to their second homes or are renting homes where they believe they can hide away from the coronavirus while Black Amerikkkans must stay put, wait it out and hope for the best in third world like conditions. Ever the hopeful ones whites are that we sicken and die by the millions from this virus while they attempt to escape via parties and by distancing themselves.

And according to members of congress and the White House, people only need sit back and wait for their BIGLY, HUGELY, GIGANTIC BAILOUT in the form of $1,200 stimulus checks to be mailed out or direct deposited within a couple of weeks even though the IRS has said, “Not so fast!” You see, thanks to budget cuts, and you all know about the budget cuts that have been going around faster than the coronavirus, what with the entire agency that was supposed to kick in if a pandemic struck having its budget cut so bad that those cuts eliminated the agency in its entirety, budget cuts have also negatively impacted the IRS which has been hobbled. The IRS will most likely not get around to sending out those much needed checks for months, to those of you who have been slated to receive them, that is. You see the technology used by the IRS is from the 1960s and coupled with fewer employees thanks to budget cuts, a tax season underway and now stimulus checks to process…uh…you’re going to be waiting.

Meanwhile, millions of Amerikkkans have also filed or tried to file for unemployment to the point whereas even that call center is sporadically operating, but somehow, this is ALL good news to Wall Street. Stocks are on the rebound even though the unemployment numbers are shooting up faster than the price of stock in Purell.

And I wouldn’t look to the military to be of much use because as coronavirus spreads among the different branches of the military, the military is trying to withhold infection data. Word is that, this data would be a ‘national security threat’ since our ‘enemies’ would know if they could kick our asses over here if they were to be made aware of just how many U.S. military personnel were out on sick leave. Even the Pentagon has not escaped the ravages of coronavirus and so there ya go.

So even as Ms. Griffin struggles to wash her hands without water seeing as how she can find no water in the stores and her water is still shut off awaiting repairs, wealthy whites are finding ways to encourage other wealthy whites to keep their chin up during this time of crisis in that they cannot leave their homes and head to Country Clubs, golf courses, spas, Starbucks, gyms, upscale restaurants, Disney World and Disneyland or shop til they drop at the few remaining brick and mortar stores. Whites are going so far as to re-hang Christmas decorations to keep their spirits up while they engage in drinking spirits since, apparently, liquor stores have been deemed, ‘necessary’ entities that need to remain open. Not to mention, whites and their neighbors in their gated communities are posting pictures on their windows to send messages of ‘rainbows’ at the end of this coronavirus crisis and that skiing in Aspen is merely postponed.

And this is just unbelievable!

For the love of !!!!!

While poor Ms. Griffin in Detroit has to deal with this!

Ms. Griffin, this may be cold comfort to you, but no amount of fake money that congress and the White House throws at this virus situation is going to make a difference in the outcome in that nothing will ever be the same, and that will include those who are white as well. They can post videos of their parties, their arrogance in claiming that they “ain’t scared of no corona.” They can try hiding out at the Hamptons and in the mountains and deserts, but they cannot escape their fate. This virus is not just going to impact us. Their asses are impacted as well and that is going to continue because there was no protocol whatsoever in place to deal with this pandemic and that is becoming crystal clear. Even a blind, deaf mute that’s been planted knows that as well. Trump and the Republicans as well as the Democrats could give a rat’s ass about the plight of millions of Amerikkkans, that much should be clearly understood since all they intend to do is throw a few measly dollars at some Amerikkkans while propping up the airlines, the cruise lines, the hospitality industry and the Asians. Oh yes, they are also attempting to prop up the Asians who claim to have lost out on business at Asian restaurants, but if you’re Black and own a business, forget about it!

For all you filthy, debased whites out there, know this, your ass is grass. I don’t give a damn about your picture postings or your Christmas decorations and neither does this virus. Your lord and savior, racist-in-chief Donald Trump wants you to take your depraved asses and sit them up in churches on Easter Sunday. Please…please…do as he says and just sit back and wait for the shit to hit the fan. If you think that this shit is a pandemic now, go sit your ass up in church on Easter Sunday and believe in and pray to YOUR bullshit god that everything is gonna be alright and back to ‘YOUR normal’ in no time flat, I wish you would! And then come on back up in here and leave me a comment to let me know how ‘well’ you’re faring. I’ll be more than happy to post your comment so that others can know just how great things are for you. Yeah! Do me that favor, why doncha!

Time To Celebrate Black History Month AGAIN! Yeah, We Got It Going On!

Black History Holds NO Fame!

Dragged from your native land,
on a floating barge of death.
You built paradise for a thief
who then plundered all the wealth.

Your name was not your own.
You would never again be free.
To know such hate from them,
as they hung you from a tree.

They say that slavery’s over.
Go forth and earn your keep.
And though you labor long,
you’re valued much too cheap.

You were denied so many rights.
And the vote was not for you.
Though many marched and died,
the court bid that adieu.*

Some think you’ve made great strides
in the face of all that’s wrong.
Yet they herd you into prison,
because they hate that you are strong.

Be wary of their smiles,
for they mean you so much harm.
If you’ve a talent, they’ll exploit it.
All over you, they’ll swarm.

They’ll use you and they’ll kill you.
You’re nothing but a thing,
and when your candle’s burned
you’ll feel ole Massa’s sting.

Don’t ever let your guard down,
and it doesn’t pay to trust.
Shield from them your weakness.
Always show them your disgust.

Black history holds no fame.
And it certainly gets no cheer.
Times have never changed.
They still look at you and sneer.

*June 25th 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, removing a critical tool to combat racial discrimination in voting.

Where shall we begin? Let us celebrate the 11% unemployment rate for Black men even though the national unemployment aka jobless rate stands at 3.7% and if your head’s not stuck up your ass, then you know that even that is a damn lie! Break out the champagne Black folks for those of you who can afford a bottle of say, Andre Cold Duck! Clink those plastic cups together and then piss in the wind because it’s all blowing back your way anyway; the shit that keeps hitting the fan, that is.

Next on our celebration list is the shit that is going down in our public education system better known as the ‘school-to-prison pipeline’ if you’re a student of color in these here United States of America where we celebrate Black History Month each and every February. This month is dedicated to showcasing the achievements of Black people in America. We are celebrating each and every single achievement that has not yet occurred but will eventually occur and we are real sure of this happening any day now.

To continue the celebrations, let us look at the child poverty statistics that are sure to impress us during these celebrations of future achievements that we are hell bent on celebrating this month. We are celebrating the fact that ‘child poverty in America is at its highest point in 20 years, putting millions of children at increased risk of injuries, infant mortality, and premature death’. And if that isn’t bad enough, ‘7 million kids still don’t have health insurance’. This is just so worth celebrating, what an achievement! What a dream as opposed to a nightmare. I wonder what that famous man who had a dream, would think of this. I seriously wonder.

But wait! There is more to celebrate this Black History Month! The good news just keeps on coming. ‘Incarceration rate for African-Americans now six times the national average’ is still making headlines among Black prisoners and their mostly white guards and the white slave patrol that arrested them for say, selling loose, un-taxed cigarettes, selling marijuana or crack while completely ignoring the white man that was buying said crack and marijuana from the guilty by birth African-American other wise known as Colored otherwise known as Black otherwise known as felon or prisoner no.1,000,034. White folks, why don’t you just lock up every single Black person at birth? It’ll save you the trouble of doing so later on since many of us will know what it feels like to be shackled just as those we are descended from knew what it felt like. And the beat goes on and we celebrate it.

And ‘here’s the Data That Shows Cops Kill Black People at a Higher Rate Than White People’, now ain’t that a bitch?! Unfortunately, Michael Brown is not here to celebrate this Black History Month with us because he was shot and killed by a cop. Twelve year old Tamir Rice is also not here this year to help us celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop while playing with a toy gun in a park. John Crawford, likewise, is not here to celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop in Wal-Mart while holding a toy gun.  Eric Garner, unfortunately, for him, was selling loose, untaxed cigarettes and that cost him his life and so he will not be joining in the celebrations. Terrance Franklin was shot and killed by cops following a traffic stop and he will not be celebrating ether. Seven year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones was shot  and killed by a cop while she slept and the charge of manslaughter against the cop that shot and killed her was dropped and so, she is not just ‘under-the-weather’, she is underground and therefore, is not able to celebrate this historic month. Let us celebrate on her behalf. Sandra Bland is not here to celebrate with us because she was hanged in a Texas jail cell. So many are not here to witness all of the achievements that we celebrate today that have not as yet occurred. But we are sure that any minute now, we shall achieve….something. Yeah! Wait on it.

Fortunately, I have found yet another statistic that gives us even more of a reason to celebrate Black history month. Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless. We have come so far this February in the year of our Lord 2020, have we not? Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population. Doesn’t that just give you a warm and comfortable, cozy feeling that those homeless people lack? These are achievements that we have here folks! Time to celebrate and to keep the momentum going. Our ancestors would be so proud of where we are today. Don’t you think? Does this not make you aware that BLACK LIVES DO NOT MATTER?!

Now, on the other hand, Tyler Perry will dress up in drag and put some Black folks to work on another Madea movie and Beyoncé will croon about a Halo for Jay-Z and Jay-Z will rap about niggas while DMX will head back to prison for drug possession, get out on probation again and then go right back in for drug possession. Viola Davis will have no problem getting cast as yet another maid after her role in ‘The Help’ and Forest Whitaker is probably all set to play yet another version of someone’s Butler since every one is well aware that us Black folks are so good at bowing and scraping and being subservient to our ‘betters’.

Finally, I’ve given you many reasons to celebrate this month. The reasons are endless and our achievements that we will watch for some time in the future are making life much better for so many of us and that is why we must enjoy this Black History Month. We have no need to march and protest like those Black people in the 1960s did. We are so past that in this here post-racial America. I mean, what we have here is a post-racial America, is it not? But nevertheless, Dr. King would be so proud as would his stalwart, fellow marchers-in-arms at the progress that we have made since his infamous, I Have A Dream speech. We shall overcome! Uh…what I meant to say is that, “We did overcome!” Now like the good little sheep you are, start celebrating all of this shit!! And look ahead to when the REAL achievements will come because surely they must come!

 

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.

 

 

This Is Some Straight Up BULLSHIT! The Whites Are ‘Honoring’ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. With A Jail Cell

 

Here we fucking go AGAIN! The whites don’t intend to do shit that matters when it comes to ‘honoring’ what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., died for. This shit that they are doing now is the absofuckinglute end of enough!

An Alabama county is preserving a jail ‘cell’ where Martin Luther King Jr. was last held before his assassination

An Alabama county has passed a resolution to preserve a jail cell where civil rights icon the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is believed to have been held months before he was assassinated in 1968.

The cell, on the seventh floor of what is now the Jefferson County Courthouse in Birmingham, is the only one that was not removed when the building underwent renovations in 1996.

“In order for Jefferson County to truly move forward, we must first recognize our past mistakes, take corrective action, and move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life,” said Jefferson County Commission President Pro Tem Lashunda Scales in a press release.

Seriously????!!!!!! This is all the fuck they can think of to do to honor a man who was jailed because the whites refused to give him a permit to march, PEACEFULLY through the goddamn streets to protest Jim Crow, no rights for American descendants of slaves, slave patrols in government uniforms and some more shit of the like???!!! For the love of !!!!

You deranged, debased, rabid racist whites can take your goddamn jail cell and stick it up your wide open assholes because you ain’t about shit when this is ALL the fuck that you will do for a man who died because you racist motherfuckers ain’t even fucking human!

You will do everything, but the RIGHT thing when it comes to ‘honoring’ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ALL those who lost their freedom and their lives for protesting the foulness and viciousness of the fucking shit you perpetrated and still do on a group of people who are here through no fault of our own! We fucking did NOT row the fuck over here and ask to be set down right smack dab in Nazi headquarters. That shit ain’t on us. That shit’s on you! And so, as usual, you will do the most vile shit that you can think of to ‘honor’ a man who was too good for you worthless debased, doughy assed whites to lick the bottom of his shoes!

You will not see to it that the man’s legacy stands for shit. His legacy in YOUR filthy, yellow eyes is a GODDAMN JAIL CELL???!!!! You think that you’re doing something by keeping a jail cell ‘hot’ for Dr. Martin Luther King JR.????!!!! What??!! You expect him to come back from the dead and walk back into that fucking cell??!!! You deranged fucks are the ABSOLUTE END OF ENOUGH!!! To have the balls of bulls and the arrogance to match is just too fucking much for me!!! I thought that I could not despise you sons-of-bitches more than I already do, but I find that I most assuredly damn well can despise, hate, loathe and detest you demonic monstrosities even more!

The people who look like Dr. King  and who are alive today are over represented in cells that look just like the one you’re claiming to ‘honor’ Dr. King with, you vile rejects from who the hell knows where. There are over two million who look just like Dr. King sitting all up in cells that look just like the one you’re holding on standby for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., you nasty, no account, debased white parasites!

“In order for Jefferson County to truly move forward, we must first recognize our past mistakes, take corrective action, and move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life,”

Recognize past mistakes? You didn’t make no goddamn mistakes! Your fucking white asses were hell bent on subjecting Black bodies to the atrocities that you visited on them and you still are. So if you’ve fucking recognized PAST MISTAKES, then why the hell are you still making them? Because like I’ve already stated, there are millions of Black bodies inside cells that look exactly like that one and why the fuck are they in there if you are all about recognizing past mistakes? You fucking useless, racist ass pieces of shit! Shut the fuck up! You ain’t about shit! Why the fuck you don’t burst into flames when even thinking about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day, I don’t fucking know because you debased hypocrites should be doing that fucking shit!

“In order for Jefferson County to truly move forward, we must first recognize our past mistakes, take corrective action, and move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life,”

Take corrective action???!!! What fucking corrective action did you take because it would seem that I have to keep repeating myself since you clueless, dumb shits ain’t getting it? What corrective action did you take? Was it to put more who look like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in an exact replica of the jail cell that Dr. King sat in? Because that’s what you damn well did, you fucking racist, pasty-assed creatures! That’s what you consider to be corrective action???!!!! Take that and also shove it up your wide open doughy assholes!

“In order for Jefferson County to truly move forward, we must first recognize our past mistakes, take corrective action, and move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life,”

Move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life? What the hell does that mean to you? Oh, I see! It means to embrace American descendants of slaves from all walks of life and incarcerate them because that is exactly what is still happening. From the abject poor Black folks to the filthy rich Black folks, we are ALL sitting up in jail cells that are exact replicas of the one Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was forced to cool his heels in for merely being unable to obtain a permit from the whites to peacefully protest racism, Jim Crow, prejudice, extreme hatred, the inability to vote and some more shit of the like because you debased pasty-assed monstrosities claim to just now get a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life to honor Dr. King by keeping a jail cell handy for some other poor Black schmuck to ogle who will eventually end up in one. Are you fucking serious??!!!!! Get the fuck outta here with your tired ass bullshit, WHITES!!!!

You ain’t about honoring shit because that’s what you’re doing; heaping a pile of your shit on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and pronouncing it to be your “YOUR RECOGNITION OF PAST MISTAKES, YOUR CORRECTIVE ACTION, YOUR MOVE FORWARD, YOUR SINCERE DESIRE TO EMBRACE PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF [BLACK]LIFE!” Fucking seriously???!!!! Get the fuck outta here!!!

American descendants of slaves are fucked up to this very day, fifty-two years after the assassination of Dr. King and all your whites ass can come up with to ‘celebrate’ and ‘honor’ Dr. King’s memory is to preserve a goddamn jail cell that you filthy, racist, doughy-assed motherfuckers made him sit up in because he couldn’t obtain a permit from your pasty ass to peacefully march through the streets to protest the rabid racism that you still visit on those who look like him!

How the hell are you going to honor Dr. King when the vast majority of what he was fighting against is still in existence today and you white shits have ramped that shit up. You are busy gentrifying Black neighborhoods. You saturated Black neighborhoods with crack. You locked up the Black crackheads while white heroin addicts are sent to rehab. You sent jobs overseas that used to provide decent wages for Black people. You introduced guns and more drugs into Black communities which then produced inner city gang violence and rampant prostitution and murders. You fucking let loose on Black communities, liquor stores and bad food markets otherwise known as ‘convenience’ stores that sold garbage as food to poor Black people while looking the other way when it came to zoning laws for liquor stores. You allowed the Pakistanis, Hindu cow worshipers from India and the Koreans to come over here and make a killing off killing Black people in their own neighborhoods because you damn sure as hell did NOT allow those motherfuckers to set up shop in YOUR white bread neighborhoods.

And Black folks, remember this?

Protesters Shut Down Convenience Store After Video Shows Owner Kicking Black Woman

Protesters in St. Louis gathered to shut down a convenience store and block the exits after a video emerged of the store’s owner and another employee attacking a woman, prompting people who viewed the assault on social media to actually do something about it.

Around 10 a.m. this morning, Shemika Russell recorded an employee of Gas Mart confronting a woman outside the store. As the woman and the man from the store argued, another man, alleged to be the owner of the gas station, came outside and kicked the woman to the ground.

After the first kicker goes back into the store, the other man, apparently jealous of his boss’ racist kung-fu, decides to join in on the treat-a-black-woman-worse-than-Putin-treats-Trump festivities and kicked the woman again.

“One of the workers, an Arab gentleman, kicked her in the stomach like she was a dog,” said Jermaine, one of the protesters and residents of the community. “So we’re here to shut it down. No more business for these people. They’re going to understand that we feed them. That they live off our community.”

That shit is what I mean by whitey parasite ass deliberately allows that shit to come over here and help his white, filthy ass to fuck us up! That goddamn Arab kicked a Black woman in her stomach like she was dirt! If his ass had kicked a damn dog, he would still be in jail because whites think more of their dogs than they do of ANY American descendant of slaves and you can take that shit to the bank! So fuck those Arabs from the Middle East, those Hindu cow worshiping motherfuckers from India and those goddamn Pakistanis! If the whites want to fuck their ass up, it ain’t no skin off my Black ass! And it shouldn’t be any off yours! I don’t give a damn how many times they drone strike your damn asses! You filthy fuckers ain’t no friends of ours!

All over this blog, I have displayed countless ways that the whites are fucking us over and are using others to come over here and fuck us over and fuck us up and we as American descendants of slaves need to understand that we have NO friends! Their whitey doughy pasty asses are a given, but you damn well had better believe that NO other group is in our corner. Don’t get the shit twisted!

And so fuck you filthy white motherfuckers and fuck your Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebrations! They don’t mean jack shit coming from the likes of you debased, depraved, pasty, doughy-assed lunatics! Die and rot in hell motherfuckers and take your fucking Arabs, Asians, Hindu cow worshipers from India, Hispanics/Latinos and Pakistanis the fuck with you!! To hell with ALL you motherfuckers!!!!

While Poverty Soars, Trillions Spent On Wars In Iraq And Afghanistan Wasted While The Amerikkkan People Are Lied To

Millions of Americans know poverty only too well and yet there are, presumably, states where poverty is more problematic than others. I am quite sure that many would beg to differ.

15 states where poverty is worse than you might think

Developed in 1963, the official poverty rate is based on pre-tax income thresholds related to the cost of a minimum food diet and the number of individuals who depend on that income.
That is unbelievable! The ‘official poverty’ rate based on pre-tax? What the hell??!!! After deductions is what tells the true story, not some before taxes bullshit. None of my paychecks have ever looked good before or after taxes and other deductions and what was there to show for those taxes? Wars! Wars and more wars!
And so we come to this!

Confidential documents reveal U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan

Senior U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the 18-year campaign, making rosy pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence the war had become unwinnable.

“We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan — we didn’t know what we were doing,” Douglas Lute, a three-star Army general who served as the White House’s Afghan war czar during the Bush and Obama administrations, told government interviewers in 2015. He added: “What are we trying to do here? We didn’t have the foggiest notion of what we were undertaking.”

What was the pretext for the war in Afghanistan?

The United States invasion of Afghanistan occurred after the September 11 attacks in late 2001, supported by close US allies. The conflict is also known as the US war in Afghanistan. Its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda, and to deny it a safe base of operations in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power.

Again, America cannot win a war! It does not matter how much military equipment is sent to a warzone, the fact should be clear to ALL by now, that America’s military ain’t shit! And if you don’t believe that, then keep reading.

“If the American people knew the magnitude of this dysfunction . . . 2,400 lives lost,” Lute added, blaming the deaths of U.S. military personnel on bureaucratic breakdowns among Congress, the Pentagon and the State Department. “Who will say this was in vain?”

Since 2001, more than 775,000 U.S. troops have deployed to Afghanistan, many repeatedly. Of those, 2,300 died there and 20,589 were wounded in action, according to Defense Department figures.

“If the American people knew of the magnitude of this dysfunction…2,400 lives lost.” And for what???!!!

The sad part is that Americans are so far removed from wars that we just don’t care. We don’t care that supposedly, healthy specimens of individuals were suited up and sent overseas to fight who or whom and how and why? No one had a clue. And it was most definitely in vain that over 2,400 lost their lives and my guess would be that the numbers are even higher since it is quite obvious that we cannot believe one lying word out of the mouths of our politicians aka warmongers and war hawks and those would include BARACK OBAMA, GEORGE W. BUSH, GEORGE H.W. BUSH and the current reigning lunatic-in-chief, DONALD TRUMP.

Thousands upon thousands of Americans who suited up and who were sent to war zones, made it back and are now wounded and are trying to receive the dubious services of the Veterans Administration and we all know that ANY services received from the Veterans Administration is a joke; just a not so very funny joke since it has been reported that those wounded soldiers who made it back from overseas deployment and who had damn near lost their minds and were suicidal were put on hold by the Veterans Administration when they called seeking help.

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold Please!”

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

In February, an Inspector General investigation revealed that some of the in-coming calls early last year had rolled over to back-up centers and gone to voicemail.

And surprise! Surprise! The original article was taken down and cannot be found online. Go figure! Can’t have the dirty secrets bandied about that America couldn’t give two flying turds about those whom we absentmindedly “Thank for their service.” What the hell does that do for someone who supposedly “put their life on the line” for this worthless ass shithole? Can it feed them? Can it house them? Can it give them the medical/psychological care they need? Can it pay their fucking bills?

But to know that it was ALL for nothing is what the troops who were sent over to Afghanistan are saying. There was no plan. There was no blueprint. There was no exit strategy. We were fed bald-faced lies by ALL presidents that had anything to do with the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and so that also means that whatever we have been told about Libya, Syria, Yemen are also lies, lies, lies and damn lies! Trump even supposedly dropped the MOAB(Mother of all bombs) in Afghanistan and what the fuck did that do? Not a goddamn thing but kill two Afghan camel herders and take money from social programs that are sorely needed seeing as how we are experiencing poverty that’s worse than what was experienced during the first Great Depression because make no mistake, we are in a Worse Depression what with the emergence of Third World diseases in this so-called ‘First World’ nation whereas abject poverty and opulence sit side by side, where tent cities are right in the midst of new construction for luxury high rise condos in Los Angeles, but over in Las Vegas, the homeless are living in tunnels. Coming into Chicago, all you see are tents lined up; endless rows of tents. The same in Baltimore and in any and every city in Amerikkka.

George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump — and their military commanders have been unable to deliver on their promises to prevail in Afghanistan. U.S. officials acknowledged that their warfighting strategies were fatally flawed and that Washington wasted enormous sums of money trying to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation. 

What? Wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” So that they could what? Open a Starbucks? Open a Walmart? Open a Popeye’s Chicken shack? Open a Target? Are they fucking serious? This shithole is collapsing what with an infrastructure that is so damn old that bridges are collapsing, pipes that run water to homes are in pieces. Sinkholes are swallowing up blocks of cars. Entire cities look like war zones. Just go to damn near every state and you’ll find rows of abandoned, falling down buildings, downtown areas that have been abandoned; just row upon row of dilapidated buildings and those assholes wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” The Amerikkkan people are stupid as hell. There you sit with your dumb, fat ass glued to a chair while staring down at a phone that is your whole life while your paycheck is being deducted for shit because “attempting to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation” is not why we are paying taxes. That is not why we have payroll deductions. And yet, all we hear from so-called politicians is that we have no fucking money to help our own citizens who are sitting all up in tents trying to cure their typhus and hookworm. Seriously??!!! What.the.fuck.

“What did we get for this $1 trillion effort? Was it worth $1 trillion?” Jeffrey Eggers, a retired Navy SEAL and White House staffer for Bush and Obama, told government interviewers. He added, “After the killing of Osama bin Laden, I said that Osama was probably laughing in his watery grave considering how much we have spent on Afghanistan.”

Yeah! What did we get for over $1 trillion? And we cannot even believe the bullshit that the U.S. government put out about Osama bin Laden since I read that the man had long since died from kidney failure long before Seal Team 6 arrived on the scene. If Osama bin Laden was deep sixed, then I’ve got a bridge for sale in London.

Keep believing the bullshit! Keep buying the lies and you will continue to look around for somewhere to put up a tent and then find yourself locked up thanks to vagrancy laws being put on the books in every city in this fucking shithole because they got nothing but wars and wars and they don’t even have a clue why the fuck there is a war and what to do in a war or how to exit a war of choice. If veterans cannot even get housed and are dying on the streets, what the hell do you think is going to happen to the rest of us? But go right ahead with your head glued to that phone. I hope your tent comes with a USB port and some electricity. Otherwise, the jail has electricity, but you won’t get to keep your phone while you’re cooling your heels in there after having been swept up in a homeless tent city raid.

Meanwhile, your government has some more lies to tell you about why we are at war in Afghanistan and why U.S. troops are still over in Iraq. By all means, keep believing the shit they spout because you love being lied to.

And so I will leave you with a little poem I wrote for the wannabe soldiers.

War Is Always Such A Blessing!

War is always such a blessing
It never is distressing or depressing.
I know all too well that this is true.
War has been good for me and you.

You proudly give your lives up for the rich.
For us, life never is a bitch.
In a blaze of glory, you go out.
And really, that’s what it’s all about.

The drone operators are so brave
as they send little children to their grave.
Since the world has become our battleground,
the drums of war make a lovely, throbbing sound.

Teach your sons and your daughters about their duty.
And one day, when they are dead, we’ll make a movie.
It will honor their brave and noble deeds.
The wounded, we shall see to all their needs.

Through war, we bring peace unto this earth.
And though you break out in dubious peals of mirth,
the last laugh will always be on you,
for none of what is written is ever true.

When we put a lethal weapon in your hand,
and send you to die in a foreign land,
your life means nothing, you should know,
but you never give pause, you just go.

War is not only just a blessing,
to warmongers, it is also quite refreshing,
that you are so willingly prostituted,
and it’s all because you are just too stupid,
to understand that if it were not for you,
no drone could ever strike on cue!

I don’t know why I wrote that poem because you useless, brain dead Amerikkkans will NEVER take what I wrote to heart! More’s the pity and I pity the world!

 

Wypipo: Standing on the Shoulders of Slaves — billziegler1947

Whites, more specifically “wypipo,” are the beneficiaries of the settler-colonialist system that created the American Empire — the exceptionalist wing of the “special relationship” that a kinship with British imperialism taught to their former colonies in North America. The colonized learn how to become colonizers. Wypipo permeate every cell of that imperial body politic.

Who are the ADOS?

American Descendants of Slavery are uniquely branded peoples. They did not immigrate to the Americas, they were absconded by the usual thievish characters who knew how to get a return on investment. Free hard labor does wonders for a bottom line if you can live with Faustian bargains. What matters is what you can get away with, not whether you redress injustice as deep as centuries of slavery. How much of an ROI did that accrue to ADOS? A trick question, because injustice continues unabated at all levels of society. From neighborhood to nation.

Bill, I was feeling this until I came to the comment that precedes yours. However, this part of your comment makes sense.

“ADOS have always been the victims of this fascist spirit, but I see no fascism among the ADOS. I do hear many falsehoods that play into the hands of our fascist overlords, who are 99.99% white.”

Yes indeed, I would dearly love to know why Peter has such contempt for ADOS when not one of us is responsible for why his beloved sentient beings are being slaughtered for ‘human’ consumption. “In denial much?” would be my response to Peter if I were so inclined to respond to him at all.

There are innocent ‘humans’ on this planet and those who look like Peter are so NOT innocent. In fact, if not for those who look like Peter, this world would pretty much look like it should what with people living at peace with the animals in their own lands; people who had no interest in taking to ships to circle the globe to find wars to start, lands to steal, people to enslave and animals to slaughter in order to decimate the food supply of the natives as in what happened on this land to the Indians. People like Peter are delusional and are hating on the wrong ‘people’ and refuse to place the blame on what is going down where it rightfully belongs.

Bill, I want to ‘follow’ your blog, but I refuse to tolerate that nonsense from the likes of Peter. No one has done anything to him or his beloved sentient beings who was not of his own complexion; certainly not one ADOS. And for him to continually throw us under the bus is absolutely asinine and insane. Why, the man is close to foaming at the mouth in outrage over what he perceives ADOS are responsible for. Someone, give that man some meds! Why we have the system of capitalism is thanks to whites. No other group is to thank for that mess and he knows that! There would be no supermarkets displaying dead animals for sale if it wasn’t thanks to the whites and he knows that as well. He also knows who is responsible for why the oceans are a radiated, plastic filled mess and yet he is throwing everyone in with those who are responsible for why this planet is in the shape that it is in. He is either a complete fool and a moron or he is like I’ve already stated, insane!

The comment that I am referencing in the above paragraphs is this one.

Here’s a paragraph from Dr. Steve Best’s latest post, somewhat relevant. “The past reveals our dark history of genocide, overkill, and boundless plunder, and we are now pushing countless other species to oblivion at an alarming rate. Since the 1970s, in just the last half-century, humans have reduced wild animal populations 60%, and within the next few decades we will obliterate an additional million plant and animal species. To indicate the extent to which one species has usurped the planet on its unending path of destruction, 96% of all mammals on earth are now humans and cattle.”

The discovery of what people are, literally, makes it increasingly difficult for me to be sympathetic to anyone’s race or culture, past, present, and future. Perhaps most of all, our race and culture; I’ll hand you that. Nonetheless, we are all cut from the same DNA regardless of color and social status. We all have a Hitler in us. Every damn last one of us. The trick is in control. Self-governance and I mean governing our tyrannical urges which are the very crux of veganism, the very idea of anarchy: Freedom for all and not just the speciests, which I have zero sympathies for. You might appreciate a recent post on Off Guardian, Reclaiming Your Inner Fascist: https://off-guardian.org/2019/11/23/reclaiming-your-inner-fascist/

To which, the author of the blog responded:

Fascism has been festering in the soil of this continent since Columbus. The genocide of each and every tribe began when word of endless riches spread like wildfire through the empires of Europe — white-skinned, forked-tongue systems offered no quarter, they took few prisoners. They deliberately destroyed entire ecosystems along the way, decimated Plains tribes by nearly driving the Bison to extinction, they actually succeeded in exterminating the Carrier Pigeon for its high fast-food value.
ADOS have always been the victims of this fascist spirit, but I see no fascism among the ADOS. I do hear many falsehoods that play into the hands of our fascist overlords, who are 99.99% white. Zero sympathies for them too.
Thanks for both links, Peter. As always, thanks for reading!

Bill Ziegler, the author of the original blog post was trying to showcase the “settler-colonialist system that created the American Empire and a deranged lunatic attempted to derail his argument by suggesting that “We all have a Hitler in us. Every damn last one of us.”

Excuse the hell out of me, but there is not one single HITLER in any American descendant of slaves. What American descendant of slaves is going around burning crosses in the yards of whites? What American descendant of slaves is rounding up and leading whites into gas chambers? What descendants of slaves have organized armies to carry out the insanity of ridding the world of everyone except those whom Hitler declared, ‘fit to live’ as in “blond, blue-eyed clones?” No American descendant of slaves is running around talking about the master race should consist of people who have deep melanin in their skin, thick black hair and brown eyes.

The lunacy or insanity of whites like Peter is why this planet’s peoples, plants and animals are on the brink of extinction. What other groups roamed this planet in search of peoples to conquer, enslave or kill, lands to steal and plunder and then proceeded to make the world one big experiment in capitalism? WHITES with a HITLER complex, that’s who! Don’t get the shit twisted!

Whites like Peter HATE, and I do mean HATE to take responsibility for their fucking actions and that is why if I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times, vegans are NOT the fucking answer to ALL of our problems. Just re-read Peter Schreiner’s comment and get a clue. He maintains that we ALL have a HITLER in us and he must actually believe that outrageous shit! I could not have a HITLER hiding somewhere in my nature if I tried. American descendants of slaves are at the mercy of shits like Peter and this is why we are getting our asses handed to us because even those who consider themselves to be “enlightened” are on some “We all have a HITLER in us,” bullshit!

He has a goddamn HITLER in his ass! He has a HITLER complex! He, like HITLER, would love to destroy everyone whom he thinks is doing shit to his ‘animals’; his sentient beings and people who have been getting fucked up by those who look like him, be damned with our HITLER complex. Seriously? That fucker is beyond crazy!

American descendants of slaves don’t own slaughter houses. We did not put into play mass food production and display the animals he claims to love in supermarkets all across the goddamn globe. American descendants of slaves are not why the oceans are a radiated mess. We are not responsible for why the oceans are also filled to overflowing with plastic to the point whereas many sea creatures are dying from consuming plastic. We did not invent the first motorized vehicle that has led us to outrageous co2 emissions and wars for fossil fuel. American descendants of slaves are not why there are nuclear power plants pouring radiation into the atmosphere and into the oceans and our food every goddamn day. Who is that shit on? That shit is on those who look just like Peter Schreiner and HITLER!

“We all have a Hitler in us. Every damn last one of us.” – Peter Schreiner

Get your ass some help because you are seriously insane, you goddamn pasty-assed lunatic! But you fucking love animals. Like hell you do! You and those like you are why they are disappearing from this godforsaken planet. Own up to the shit you and yours do because YOU fucking own the shit! Don’t you dare sit on your dough colored ass and claim that ALL groups have a “HITLER” in them just because your ass don’t want to admit that your kind is THE most foul, vicious, depraved, deranged, murdering  pieces of filthy garbage to ever have slithered and crawled all across this planet laying waste to every being and everything it came across! You whites are HITLERS.PERIOD. End.Of.Story. You fucking murdering, debased rejects from who the hell knows where!

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.

Kid influencers: Companies make millions while laws protecting children fail to keep up
Amazon’s Echo Dot Kids puts kids at risk, complaint alleges
New program teaches kids how to protect their privacy online

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!
