Why I Have NEVER ‘Celebrated’ Juneteenth And Why I NEVER Will!!!!! A Re-post

So, what exactly is Juneteenth?
Juneteenth

[jo͞oːnˌtēːnTH, ˌjo͞onˈtēnTH, jo͞o:nˈtē:nTH]
a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.
What does emancipation mean?
emancipation

[əˌmansəˈpāSH(ə)n]
NOUN
the fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation.
“the emancipation of feminist ideas”
synonyms:
freeing · liberation · liberating · setting free · release · releasing · letting loose/out · setting loose/free · discharge · unchaining · unfettering · unshackling · untying · unyoking · uncaging · unbridling · freedom · liberty · manumission · disenthrallment

the freeing of someone from slavery.
“the early struggle for emancipation from slavery”

So when you look at why Juneteenth is celebrated and you look at what emancipation means, tell me, American Descendants of Slavery, how are you free, liberated, unshackled, unyoked, uncaged, unbridled and unfettered?

When the protesters were in Minneapolis going the fuck off, those who are descendants of the racist shits that enslaved our ancestors were busy spying on the mostly Black protesters via drones, spy planes and spy helicopters in order to arrest people who were supposedly, liberated. But we know that we are not liberated because the protesters were protesting because a Black man was detained and murdered for no reason. So, what were you celebrating on Juneteenth? That you enjoy enslavement? That you enjoy being spied on by the same government that dragged your ancestors here to become slaves for them? Did you celebrate Juneteenth because the whites are championing that day as though there is some meaning to it for us because if you are, then you are so stupid that you could actually be made to believe that shit don’t stink.

As long as the whites are telling you to ‘celebrate’ some bullshit, why…there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Black History Month…well, there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day…why there you go. Those days have no meaning for us. Those days are the whites’ way of saying, “Look, I’ve given you much to celebrate. Now go out and buy shit and shut the hell up because that is all that we owe you. Fuck reparations. You’ll get a few days in which to celebrate what you think are freedoms.” And you know what, most of us do just that. You accept so little and will rejoice over a turd handed to you, especially if you are being told that that turd has special significance to you.

Whites are flaming liars, thieves, criminals and murderers; that’s what they’ve always been and that’s what they always will be. You cannot expect whites to do shit that would make a gnat’s ass worth of real difference in your life. They will talk shit to you and hope that you continue to buy it and eat it and you do and so why would they feel pressured to actually do anything of substance; anything of meaning? They wouldn’t.

When you celebrated Juneteenth, did it put any money into your pocket? Did it give you health insurance? Did it cure your diabetes since you have diabetes because of poor diet because you work minimum wage jobs and cannot afford the proper foods with nutrients needed for a healthy body? Did it move you out of a crime infested neighborhood that is wracked with gang violence? Did it close down the liquor store in your neighborhood owned by a foreigner brought over here for the express purpose of further reducing your time spent on this planet above ground? Did celebrating Juneteenth get the bank to approve a home loan for you? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you approved for an apartment in a nice section of town? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you into college? What was the purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth? There was none and the whites know this. The purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth was all for the whites. It had absolutely nothing to do with you since the whites know that whatever bone they toss you, you will run with it, be thankful for it and don’t question why the whites are hyping up some piece of shit ‘day of emancipation’ that never took place, because make no mistake, we are still slaves. We are still slaves in every way.

Look around you. What group in this country is in the worst possible condition? The group that was hellbent on celebrating Juneteenth, that’s who. What the fuck do you have to celebrate? American descendants of slavery are the poster children for homelessness, income inequality, mass incarceration, abject hunger, childhood poverty, high school drop-out rates out of the ballpark, inadequate or no health care, high mortality rates for Black women, babies and children and for both Black men and women, high mortality rates from being murdered by cops. And statistically speaking, we are at the bottom, economically and so disadvantaged, it has been stated that Black household wealth stands at $7.00. We have no real and true wealth; no tangible and intangible assets.

But that was not always the case. Whites destroyed everything we ever built for ourselves, from our homes to our institutions to our movements and so why do you think that they have no problem with us ‘celebrating’ Juneteenth, Black History Month and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day? It is because that is ALL we are to have. And for most of you, that seems to be enough!

And yet, when the protests were raging, all we heard from the whites and from the Black misleaders was, “Look! They are burning down their own neighborhoods!” What fucking neighborhoods do we own? Black people don’t own shit! The lone Black barbershop on the corner is nothing to screech about because, HELL! In Baltimore, MD, Black people have taken to doing curbside barbering. Those goddamn foreigners that the whites have over here on expired visas own that shit that was burned to the ground. If you look at the news out of Minneapolis, there was some Somali man standing there talking about how he owned this and that and was going to help the burned out community. SERIOUSLY??!! How did his tree climbing ass, crawl down from a tree in Somalia, fly the fuck over here and own some damn businesses when Black people, who were born here and are descendants of slaves, have to operate a ‘curbside’ barbershop and yet the whites and the Black misleaders want to exclaim that we are burning down our own damn businesses? What businesses? Yeah! Go do your research and get back to me on that. American descendants of slavery are doing so poorly because it is by design. Whites know why! And they intend on keeping that status quo the same for why else is every other group that comes over here, given every advantage in the world to build up shit, while our shit gets torn down by the whites who spy on us, constantly? They spy on us to make sure that we don’t get any ideas that we are ever going to get ahead because they make damn sure that they nip that shit in the bud before it can even get off the goddamn ground.

But we can happily celebrate Juneteenth because it does NOTHING for us! It is not supposed to, but we are satisfied because Amerikkka, this fucking year, celebrated Juneteenth with us. Ain’t that some shit??!! Indeed, it was!

—————————————————————————————————-

I published the above blog post last year this time and now this year, the whites have decided to make Juneteenth, a federal holiday. What the hell for? What difference will it make in the lives of those of us who are descendants of slavery? Will it improve our unemployment statistics? Our low wage job statistics? Our incarceration statistics? Our dying at the hands of government sanctioned thugs statistics? Our homelessness statistics? Our school-to-prison pipeline statistics? Will it stop Black women from dying in childbirth along with their babies? Will it stop gentrification? Will it stop evictions due to job loss? What will this so-called ‘holiday’ do besides put more money into the coffers of the whites?

Biden signs bill making Juneteenth a federal holiday

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden signed legislation Thursday establishing a new federal holiday commemorating the end of slavery, saying he believes it will go down as one of the greatest honors he has as president.

Juneteenth is just another federal holiday for the whites. It’s just like Memorial Day! “Go out and buy some shit because a sale is on! Great reduction in prices and so shop til you’re broke!” Never mind the fact that you’re more than likely broke already, but the whites can always drum up more ways to make sure that you are.

And as usual, the same Judas Goats are foaming at the mouth over another table scrap thrown from Massa’s table. Just look at those Black fools.

And there they are; the usual suspects, beaming and some more shit over shit!

The sight of them just makes my stomach turn! As I have already stated, Black people will celebrate a turd thrown to them by the whites so long as it comes with bells and whistles and lacks substance of ANY kind. So go ahead and celebrate another turd the whites have given you, but as for me, I don’t eat shit!! I’ll leave that to the rest of you!!!

“I Immediately Let Out A Yell And A Sigh Of Deep Relief!”, Hannah Drake Wrote After Joe Biden Was Declared, President

So, Hannah Drake, let me ask you something. Are you still yelling and sighing a sigh of deep relief now that Joe Biden has been elected? Tell me, what’s changed, Hannah Drake?

Biden just announced a new plan to throw billions at small businesses. Ain’t that great? Is this not what you were sighing a deep sigh of relief and yelling about?

Biden announces a new plan to narrow the racial wealth gap including $100 billion more in federal contracts to small businesses and rules to end housing discrimination

The White House on Tuesday announced a new plan to narrow the racial wealth gap.
It aims to help small businesses access federal contracts and to address housing discrimination.
Biden announced the measures on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre.
See more stories on Insider’s business page.

President Joe Biden’s administration on Tuesday announced new measures designed to narrow the racial wealth gap and build wealth in Black communities.

First of all, what “Black communities” are Biden talking about? The homeless “Black communities” on Skid Row? The homeless “Black communities” that are in the tunnels underneath Las Vegas? The “Black communities” that are homeless encampments in EVERY SINGLE CITY IN THIS CESSPOOL THAT’S CALLED ‘AMERIKKKA?

“It aims to help small businesses access federal contracts and to address housing discrimination.”

Uh…I hate to be the one to break it to Biden, but “housing discrimination” has already been addressed by way of GENTRIFICATION which led to mass homelessness of Black folks. Problem solved!

Most minority groups, especially African Americans and Indigenous people, experience homelessness at higher rates than Whites, largely due to long-standing historical and structural racism.

The most striking disparity can be found among African Americans, who represent 13 percent of the general population but account for 39 percent of people experiencing homelessness and more than 50 percent of homeless families with children. This imbalance has not improved over time.

So, what I’m not understanding is how is Joe Biden going to throw $100 billion dollars at small businesses and that would help Black Americans because from what I’m seeing, Black folks are not running small businesses, especially since whites just celebrated the fact that they burned down The Black Wall Street and so when we did have businesses, up and running, the whites burned them down. And so now that Black folks are homeless, Joe Biden is going to throw $100 billion dollars to some Asians, Mexicans, Pakistanis, Russians and every other IMMIGRANT and uplift them to ever more heights of prosperity because ain’t no Black businesses in homeless encampments, Joe Biden, which is where the majority of Black folks are living.

But we got some folks like Hannah Drake who are just yelling and sighing in relief that Joe Biden is at the helm of this racist shithole as opposed to Donald Trump because things are just so damn much better for Black folks. Ain’t that right, Hannah Drake? Let’s hear what some Black folks have to say about what a great job Joe Biden is doing.

Biden failing with blacks, military, seen as weak and ineffective

And in another timed for Biden’s trip to Tulsa, Oklahoma, today for ceremonies on the 100th anniversary of the so-called Tulsa massacre, voters 39%-28% said race relations have turned worse since Biden took office.

Black people, for example, generally believe that nothing’s changed since former President Donald Trump left Washington. Some 36% said race relations are “about the same,” slightly more than the 34% who said “better,” and 50% said “life for young black Americans” is the same.

In Tulsa today, Biden is expected to empathize with black people killed in the massacre and offer additional spending programs to aid black businesses.

Biden can take his ’empathy’ and shove it up his wide open asshole because what does his hypocritical, meaningless, non-existent ’empathy’ do to uplift Black people out of homelessness? Not a goddamn thing! But meanwhile, Hannah Drake is still doing this, “I ran outside among the fall leaves and yelled, “It’s a good day to be in America!” – Hannah Drake

The really sad part about that, Hannah Drake, is that there are SO many people who look like you who are outside all day and all night. It’s called, “HOMELESSNESS!” I’m sure they kept real quiet when you was out screeching about how “It’s a good day to be in America!” because, according to you, Joe Biden was elected, president and so that solved all problems for Black folks in AmeriKKKa. Ain’t that just some shit!

Hannah Drake, here are some Black folks that just disagree with you altogether. They think a “good” day would include…well…I’ll just let you read it for yourself.

National Black Power Convention activist predicts a time will come when black Americans will ‘kill everything white in sight’

An activist at the National Black Power Convention warned a time will come when black Americans will “kill everything white in sight.”

“We’re pushing death to white supremacy. Death to capitalism. Death to imperialism. And death to fascism,” an unidentified man said in a video outside a Second Amendment March in Oklahoma.

He also directed his attention to white people.

“Once they die, we must understand that we can never give them the pain that they gave us,” the man said, urging those listening to repeat his words. “So once they get buried … once they are buried, we must bury them, dig them up, and kill them again. Bury them. Dig them up. And kill them again.”

Bury them. Dig them up. And kill them again,” the crowd echoed.

“We are pushing an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a head for a head, and a life for a life,” he continued, speaking to a crowd of several dozen people.

The man also urged those in attendance to push back on “black-on-black crime, fear, and self-hatred.”

Dude said this while at an event that was held to observe the 100th anniversary of the “Black Wall Street Massacre,” where 300 black Americans were killed, and more than 10,000 were left homeless; and all of this was done to them by whites just like Joe Biden.

But Hannah Drake wants us to understand that this guy does not speak for ALL of us; that he certainly does NOT speak for her because as far as Hannah Drake is concerned,

“I ran outside among the fall leaves and yelled, “It’s a good day to be in America!” – Hannah Drake

Hannah Drake, all I can say to that is, you really do “write some shit!”

COVID-19 Vaccine Comes With A Warning Label: Have Resuscitation Equipment On Standby When Administering The COVID-19 Vaccine

Over in the United Kingdom, it has been reported that people have shown an allergic reaction to Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.

UK: 2 people report allergic reaction to Pfizer vaccine

British regulators warned that people with a history of serious allergic reactions shouldn’t receive the new Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine while they investigate two adverse reactions on the first day of the country’s mass vaccination program.

The U.K.’s Medical and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency is looking into whether the reactions were linked to the vaccine. The two people affected were staff members with the National Health Service who had a history of allergies, and both are recovering. Authorities have not specified their reactions.

The medical regulatory agency also said vaccinations should not be carried out in facilities that don’t have resuscitation equipment.

This bears repeating!

The medical regulatory agency also said vaccinations should not be carried out in facilities that don’t have resuscitation equipment.

It bears repeating especially after reading this!

“In the pivotal phase three clinical trial, this vaccine was generally well tolerated with no serious safety concerns reported by the independent Data Monitoring Committee,” Pfizer and BioNTech said.

How in the world can Pfizer and BioNTech get away with stating that there were NO SERIOUS SAFETY CONCERNS REPORTED when “the medical regulatory agency also said vaccinations should not be carried out in facilities that don’t have RESUSCITATION EQUIPMENT since people who have allergies have, apparently, had to be resuscitated after receiving Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine? Not to mention the fact that British regulators have warned that anyone who has had allergic reactions to food or any type of history of allergies, should NOT receive this vaccine and so since that is the case, then what does that mean for people who cannot take the vaccine at all? Especially since we know that FORCED vaccinations are coming down the pike. It is just a matter of time. And so if I have allergies, I am not supposed to take this vaccine. Not to mention, a second dose of the vaccine is needed and yet, no one seems to know how long the vaccine protects a person from the effects of COVID. I mean, each year, we are told to get another flu shot since there is a different strain every year and so since this particular viral illness is supposedly worse than your average, garden variety flu, how long is a person protected after having taken this COVID-19 vaccine? There are still more questions than answers.

Not to mention that I read an article yesterday, stating that our employers CAN MAKE US TAKE A COVID-19 VACCINE! And that is why, like I have already stated, forced vaccinations are coming.

Yes, some Americans may be required to get a COVID-19 vaccine but not by the federal government.

A big question remains: Will Americans be required to get vaccinated?

For some, the short answer is yes, public health and legal experts say. But a mandate is not likely anytime soon, and likely not to come from the federal government. Instead, employers and states may condition return or access to workplaces, schools and colleges upon getting the vaccine and mandate it once the FDA issues full approval, potentially months later.

Oops! There it is! I knew that was coming. So, what happens if an employee has allergies? We already know that some people who have allergies have had to be resuscitated and so they are supposed to just die from having received a vaccine that they were allergic to? We are only at the beginning of this slippery slope and it’s going to get worse from here on out.

It is quite obvious that everyone, simply, EVERYONE is actually quite clueless when it comes to COVID and we ALL know that here in the states the cluelessness is on a whole other level and so with that having been stated, shit is going to hit the fan in an even worse way. In fact, as I type this, Baltimore’s new mayor, Brandon Scott, has shut down indoor and outdoor dining, AGAIN. He is also in quarantine because he has come into contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19. Minnesota leads the nation in the highest percentage of COVID cases and their bars have had their operating hours cut to the point whereas Minnesotans have been flocking to Wisconsin bars and since multiple fights have broken out in those bars, Wisconsin officials have had to mandate that bars in Wisconsin close by 10pm. This shit is off the chain and I for one, am loving it!

And so let me stop right here and toot my horn, AGAIN! I told you assholes that something was going to come down the pike that was going to make life as you know it, cease and desist and something else was going to take its place and wreak havoc. Lo and behold, not too long after that, COVID-19 to the rescue. I also told you whites that your lives were going to be impacted as well, in a big, HUGE FUCKING WAY! Take a look at this!

In this video, white woman goes berserk.

 

She ain’t hardly happy about the fact that a production crew can come along and set up shop while she’s losing EVERYTHING because new COVID-19 mandates have closed her establishment, AGAIN!

She says:

“I’m losing everything. Everything I own is being taken away from me. And they set up a movie company right next to my outdoor patio which is right over here.”

She then points in the direction of where the production crew has set up shop.

“They have not given us money and they have shut us down. We cannot survive. My staff cannot survive. Look at this! Tell me that this is dangerous. But right next to me is a slap in my face! That’s safe. This is safe?”

Then she starts crying. Oh the power of white woman tears! Will her tears be enough to get her establishment reopened as fast as she would like? Will her tears soften the hearts of those white men who shut her shit down? Will this white woman’s tears stop COVID in its viral tracks so that she can continue to do a lucrative business and life for her just resumes normality; the normality of CAPITALISM flowing smoothly along for whites, Hindus, the Japanese, Somalis, the Russians, the Vietnamese, the Chinese, the Pakistanis; everyone except for American descendants of slavery. Because you see, this is what’s happening to us while the rest of you are focusing on your just desserts; COVID-19.

But wait! Did anyone catch this??!!! “THEY HAVE NOT GIVEN US ANY MONEY!” What???!!! Is this WHITE WOMAN actually screeching in defense of, GASP, SOCIALISM????!!! Socialism? Bad if it could possibly help American descendants of slavery. Socialism? GOOD when white folks need money! Ain’t she a bitch!!! That was NOT a question.

Maryland reports first cold-related death of the 2020-2021 winter season

Officials say the deceased is a [Black} Baltimore City woman in the 60-70 age range. 

Last year there were 50 reported cold-related deaths.

Cold-related illness includes hypothermia and frostbite.

Hypothermia occurs when the body’s temperature falls below 95 degrees Fahrenheit.

Frostbite is the freezing and subsequent destruction of body tissue that may occur when skin temperature is below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

Body parts that are most likely to freeze include toes, fingers, ears, cheeks and the tip of the nose.

She is just the one they KNOW of, but I highly doubt that she is the first and she certainly will NOT be the last. And yet, in the video above, a white woman is screeching and wailing because her restaurant has been closed due to concerns that it could potentially spread COVID-19 while a poor homeless, elderly Black woman in Baltimore, froze to death. She didn’t have to wait for COVID to kill her. She didn’t have to wait and see if Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine would fuck her up and cause her to have to be resuscitated. She died because she was an American descendant of slavery who had already been deemed, worthless and so could just freeze to death. Who would care? Who would be concerned? Everyone has their own issues, right?

One thing I have noticed about this here blog of mine. I remember when I used to write about sunshine, sunbeams and all things bright and beautiful, the comments and ‘likes’ were always forthcoming, but now, since what I write is not about sunshine, sunbeams and all things bright and beautiful, those folks took a hike. But you know what? Regardless of that, this blog of mine gets even more views than it used to get ‘likes’ and comments and you want to know why? Because here, you are going to find the hard truths, truths many of you cannot handle or just flat out, don’t want to see, but you come here, regardless. You know that I am going to hit your asses with my own life experiences. I am NOT going to sugar coat a damn thing and even though, damn near every single one of you feel as though I have in some way, offended your delicate sensibilities, you know that I could give two fucks about that. A gnat couldn’t wipe its ass on the amount of concern that I could drum up about having tread on your non-existent, delicate sensibilities.

So you keep dragging your asses on up in here and I will keep the shit real. You ain’t got to like it. You ain’t even got to read it in its entirety, but I know for a fact, that you fucking just cannot help yourself. So enjoy!

This is for the poor Black homeless woman who was most likely, damn near 70 years old and who died for lack of a home, leaving her exposed to the elements. What need had she to worry about COVID, a vaccine or someone shutting down her restaurant when she didn’t even have a home from which to escape the elements? But yet, in the above video the white woman says,

“We cannot survive. My staff cannot survive.” Well guess what bitch, a poor Black woman did NOT survive! But it’s ALL about you and your staff, isn’t it? AGAIN, for those who are dumb as all hell, I told you assholes that what comes around, goes around and now this white bitch is screeching about how she cannot survive, her staff cannot survive. Join the fucking club, bitch!! KARMA AND COVID-19 TO THE RESCUE!

 

You’d Leave Jesus On The Street!

A silent night, a lonely night,
no reindeer on the roof.
A winter moon, my eyes behold,
to my homelessness, you are aloof.

No stranger to a manger,
not a hotel bed for me.
They say that Christ was born,
in this same pitiful state was He.

We have so much in common,
just a star to guide the way.
Where are the promised Wise Men
who at my feet, their gifts, should lay?

A pair of socks and toiletries
are all the gifts I need.
For I cannot expect a roof,
since the bank did take my deed.

No hot drink to keep me warm,
a bottle of beer must do.
I can’t help but hate this holiday
because next year, this will be you.

Open your gifts and smile.
At that smartphone, you will stare.
It blinds you to reality
of the poverty, everywhere!

There are so many without hope
and no money to their name.
While your car is filled with gifts
yet your conscience knows no shame.

How can you not remember
whose birth we celebrate?
For just one day in one whole year,
and still, it won’t resonate.

What we have done to those who lack
a home and food to eat,
is testament to the fact
that you’d leave Jesus on the street!

Where are all the goddamn christian charities at? Where are all the goddamn churches at? Where the fuck are all the donations and tithes going when there are people who are out on the streets, dying for lack of a home? Yeah, ask ME for some damn donations and tithes. You’re going to get something alright, but what you’re going to get, believe me, you don’t fucking want it!

 

For Those Of You Who Keep Coming To My Blog Looking For REPARATIONS, They’re Not Here, But If You Find REPARATIONS FOR AMERICAN DESCENDANTS OF SLAVERY, Let Me Know!

For some reason, this blog is getting a lot of attention due to a blog I put up years ago on REPARATIONS. In fact, a former blogger who went by “Kushite Prince” had posted a chart about REPARATIONS and I posted the chart along with a poem. So, I am posting this to save you the trouble of clicking on the former blog by “Kushite Prince,” since it is no longer available. Thanks to COVID-19 and Donald J. Trump, “Kushite Prince” got scared and deleted his entire blog and flew the coop. So, since many of you have tried to click the link to his now deleted blog, this would be why you are being sent to an error message instead. And so I only have this left over from Prince’s blog.

Reparations!

 

Reparations, yes the Jews received; the Japanese as well.

Yet, descendants of the slaves are told to “go to hell!”

The Holocaust was shocking; that is widely understood.

How can we break the chains of slavery? There’s no way we ever could.

Black backs were broke and lashed, and rape was just the thing.

But the Jews, for their misery received what’s due a king.

Internment camps were used to detain the Japanese,

who received compensation soon after their release.

 

Descendants of the slaves are enslaved unto this day.

They are used and abused in every single way.

Why were they never paid for the slavery of the past?

But the Jews are quite rich; indeed, their wealth is vast.

Is it all because of who they are and that their skin’s not Black?

Or is it due to attitudes that slavery’s not a fact?

If you buy yourself a human, you’re a nasty piece of work.

And if you lash his back and maim him, you’re more than just a jerk.

 

The slaves suffered much and they had nowhere to turn.

They were three-fifths of a person; no money did they earn.

A nation took from Indians and built on slavery too.

And with each new generation, their boot will land on you.

Do not speak of recompense, as it blows into the wind.

No descendant of a slave should ever be the white man’s friend.

Look at the reparations chart! Even the Japanese were rewarded or compensated for having been placed in internment camps and they came to this shithole, WILLINGLY. And next, look at the chart at where the Japanese stand today with regards to wealth.

 

 

The Japanese have more wealth than the whites! They sure got back at you bastards for bombing their shit, didn’t they? And I wonder what’s in that sushi you’ve been tearing up? But I don’t want to know bad enough to try some. No thank you! If I had bombed people, there is no way in hell that I would be eating what they were cooking, but you whites love living dangerously, so go right ahead! You’ve been lapping up whatever is in it, anyway!

And ask yourself this question, “Have you EVER seen a homeless Jew? Yeah, I know, you don’t have to think very hard because you haven’t. Now ask yourself THIS question, with the Democrats screeching about Russian interference in the last election, how many HOMELESS Russians have you seen? Don’t need a minute to think on that one do you? Yeah! I know. There are none. Now let me ask you THIS question. How many homeless Hindu cow worshipers who hailed from INDIA, have you seen? You don’t even need a nanosecond to come up with the answer to that one either because the answer is “NONE!”

But let’s get to the clincher. Who built this country? Was it the Jews? Was it the Japanese? Was it those who hail from India? Was it the Mexicans? I’ll give you a hint. On the “REPARATIONS” chart, it’s the group at the VERY BOTTOM! And look where they are on the other chart, at the very bottom in wealth, meaning we have no wealth as descendants of slavery.

Have you seen any HOMELESS AMERICAN DESCENDANTS OF SLAVERY? You are saying to yourself, “Self, they are ALL I do see, that is, when I even deign to ‘see’ them, the unsightly, eyesores they are.” How did that happen and why? It happened because whites made it happen. Why? Ask yourself that question, whites! Ask yourself what you have against American descendants of slavery and why. Go ahead! And I’ll wait a good long time for that response because it should take a good long time to come up with ANY response seeing as how we have done NOT a goddamn thing to you sick ass twisted bastards! But you welcome every single damn group over here and put them over us and then point the finger at us and exclaim about how we don’t try and help ourselves. We have tried EVERY damn thing and what did we get for our efforts? We got our cities burned to the ground. You remember Rosewood, don’t you? You remember the Tulsa Race Massacre, don’t you? You remember that we had The Black Wall Street…and what happened to that? Why, you whites burned it to the ground, killing hundreds and you got away with that shit. What did whites do to the MOVE headquarters in Philadelphia? You bombed that and thought nothing of killing our children. You’ve bombed our churches killing our children. You’ve lynched us, initiated Jim Crow with separate entrances to restaurants, motels, schools; the whole nine yards and still you say, “American descendants of slavery are NOT due reparations.” Well, let me tell you something. The shit that is going down today all across this planet is a direct result of a debt you OWE and you ARE going to pay in one form or another. And since you did NOT want to pay that debt, the easy way, you ARE going to pay that debt, the hard way, but pay it, YOU WILL! Now, you can take that to the bank!

Your shit is going to get so fucked up, you will NEVER recover. California, as I type this is on fire, AGAIN. Hurricanes are churning in the Atlantic. A pandemic is closing your businesses. You are not out in the streets protesting over the death of George Floyd. What the fuck do you care about an American descendant of slavery getting his neck crushed? You’ve done nothing about the shit that you have been knowingly visiting on us for hundreds of years. Your ass is out on the streets, en masse because your ass is terrified that life as you knew it is over. And believe me, it is! You’re about to lose your shit and your shit means everything to you. Your shit is your status symbol and without it, you are NOTHING! That is why your asses are quick to suck on a gun because once you hit “dirt poor” status, it’s UNDER the dirt for you!

The sun is going to burn your asses up! And if the sun don’t get your ass, some worse shit than COVID-19 is next on the menu. So you keep on with your irrational hatred of those of us who are here through no fault of our own while you prop up those who willingly CAME here because you let them come here or better yet, crossed an ocean and flew them here for the express purpose of putting them over us just like you did with the Somalis, Ethiopians, Nigerians, Vietnamese and the list is endless. All of those groups are faring extremely well while those who are like me are sleeping on city streets in tents or cardboard boxes. They are in filthy homeless shelters being treated worse than shit. But through it all, we are still here. We are the “in your face” proof that you are evil, personified. There is nothing humanitarian or benevolent about you, whites! You are stinking, maggot coated shit! And you are going to pay for that! So, go right ahead and try and bamboozle some Black folks that “Black Lives Matter” to you with your hypocritical sign holding ass. But you will NEVER fool me, not ever! And there are millions more of us that your lame ass shit will NOT fool! And we are going to watch your shit, crash and burn and crash and burn, it will. Count on it! You see, you’ve only strengthened us because we have been down for hundreds of years, but your white asses are about to join us! And believe me, you are NOT going to want THAT to happen because have you seen the news lately? No? I’ll give you a hint.

More Black Americans are buying firearms. Rising racial tension after the George Floyd protests and the COVID-19 pandemic have triggered fears for their safety.

More Black Americans have been buying firearms and joining gun clubs in recent months, according to the National African American Gun Association (NAGAA).

Damon Finch, the president of an all-black gun club in New York, told Business Insider that he has also witnessed a surge in membership in recent weeks, with Black women taking a particular interest.

The number of Black Americans buying firearms and joining gun clubs has increased dramatically in the last few months, according to the National African American Gun Association (NAGAA).

But NAGAA isn’t the only organization that is witnessing this trend.

Damon Finch, the president of the all-black Hudson Valley Nubian Gun Club in New York, told Business Insider that numbers have “doubled or tripled” almost every time the group holds weekly meetings.  

You see, whites, we ain’t Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whispering some shit that ‘peaceful’ is the way to go. We’re fucking tired of marching with the same, lame ole tired ass protest signs that are over four hundred years old! Oh no! We locked and loaded. And those of us who didn’t know how to use a gun are learning. So keep fucking with us and you are going to learn that though we have been ‘peaceful’ for over four hundred years, that’s about to change! We ain’t fucking around!

And I’ll leave you with a little hint of just how fed up we are!

Pay My Goddamn Claim!

I don’t give a damn about this country.
And hell no! I never will.
So, you say that I should leave.
I’ll leave when you pay my bill.

White motherfuckers owe me.
And the account is way past due.
If the Jews got paid for the holocaust,
why didn’t slavery earn some revenue?

Oh that’s right, I’m a Black sheep.
And not the anointed chosen one.
I’m descended from slaves in the field
And from those kissed by the sun.

What was wrong then is wrong today.
But the shit is still the same.
Forget about hearing me praise this shit.
Just pay my goddamn claim!

I refuse to let this shithole forget who built it. Built on the backs of my ancestors who received not a goddamn dime in payment for services rendered. It’s way past time to pay up. They’re dead, but we’re here to collect. Every goddamn body else can receive compensation for wrongs throughout history except for the slaves and their descendants. Our ancestors did not come here willingly to build this godforsaken shithole and then their descendants get treated like dogs and jailed and killed, indiscriminately. This country don’t mean shit to me and it never will. And I have no problem making that fact, well known. I would never take up arms in defense of this shit. Defend what? The slaughtering of innocent people all over the world? Hell! It started with the Indians and then just continued to present day. What’s changed? Not a goddamn thing! This country started out with blood on its hands and has had no problem with maintaining the status quo ever since. Who are the shits that initiate and instigate this? Oh, yeah! You know! We ALL know! The truth is ugly and that’s why it always gets ‘whitewashed’. Well this is a ‘whitewash’ free zone. And it’s also a bullshit free zone. I don’t pretty shit up. I tell it like it is!

And don’t hand me no bullshit about what’s going down in Africa. I’m in America, goddamn it! Whatever’s going down in Africa, they didn’t drag my ancestors to America and now we have the school to prison pipeline called, the new ‘slavery’? Exactly!

Make sure to read the announcement real good. One hundred and fifty Negroes in fine form, for sale. And today, there are over 2.3 million of them for sale to the prison industrial complex. What the fuck’s changed? PAY OUR GODDAMN CLAIM!

 

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.
