“Attorney Michael F. Cockson, Would You be Content To Receive A Settlement Check In The Amount Of $724.15? Hell No, You Wouldn’t Hence Why You Are Suing Your Own Damn Clients Because You Want More Than The $6 Million Dollars Awarded To You In Attorney’s Fees!!!”

 

For a few days now, I have been receiving comments, purportedly from class members of a class action lawsuit that resulted in tenants renting slum properties from two slumlords in Minneapolis, MN who were not licensed to rent their slum properties. Steve Frenz and Spiros Zorbalas teemed up to run a scam on the City of Minneapolis, MN when the City of Minneapolis, MN ran ‘The Slumlord of Minneapolis’, Spiros Zorbalas, out of Minneapolis by stripping him of his rental licenses on ALL rental properties in Minneapolis, MN.

Then along comes Steve Frenz who told the City of Minneapolis, MN that he had purchased ALL of the properties that had been previously owned by Spiros Zorbalas. The City of Minneapolis, MN then approved rental licenses for the properties that had been owned by Spiros Zorbalas. However, the fact of the matter is that Spiros Zorbalas still owned the rental properties that Steve Frenz claimed he now owned, thus making his rental licenses, null and void. Meanwhile, thousands of mostly low income minority tenants were paying rent to live in vermin and rodent infested buildings that were substandard to say the least in that many had no heat, no hot water, crumbling stairs, unsecured mailboxes, bedbugs and the list is endless.

The City of Minneapolis, MN ‘claimed’ to have no knowledge of the fraud being perpetrated by Spiros Zorbalas and Steve Frenz. Enter Attorney Michael F. Cockson, who was initially contacted by Inquilinxs Unidos, a renters’ union out of Minneapolis, MN that helps immigrants with housing and other issues they face. Attorney Michael F. Cockson, a partner at the law firm, FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402 agreed to take the case on behalf of Inquilinxs Unidos. However, after learning of the scope of tenants who were adversely impacted by unclean and unsafe building conditions, Judge Mary Vasaly upgraded the case to class action status and said that all former and current renters were to receive ALL rent payments that they had made to Steve Frenz, The Apartment Shop LLC and various other holding companies that Frenz had started up to hide the fact that Spiros Zorbalas still owned the properties that he was acting as front man for.

The case was eventually settled for $18.5 million which was relegated to the coffers of the Settlement Administrators, BrownGreerPLC, located in Richmond, VA, which was to get in excess of $300,000 to send mailings to class members and to mail out checks to class members. Commonbond and another company was named as recipients of checks that should have been relegated to class members and only to class members. See here for details.

However, Attorney Michael F. Cockson was not happy with 25% of the settlement funds awarded to him by Judge Mary Vasaly and so sued his own clients in the Court of Appeals for 32% of the class action settlement funds. Now originally, he would have received over $6 million dollars from a case that he took because he wanted to “Give a voice to those who could not speak for themselves” and to “compensate them for their living conditions” and yet as of today, the appeal for more in Attorney’s Fees for Michael F. Cockson’s greedy ass is still in ‘briefing’ status with the Court of Appeals.

After I blogged about this on June 14, 2019, four days later, the Settlement Administrators called and told my cousin that the settlement checks had been mailed out on June 17, 2019. Below is a copy of the settlement check that my cousin received as his share of the $18.5 million dollar class action lawsuit.

 

So, even though my cousin paid thousands upon thousands in rent to rent an apartment that had multiple safety issues and code violations and was not even licensed to be rented, he received $724.15 while Attorney Michael F. Cockson, a partner at the law firm, FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402 is suing my cousin and all other members of this class action lawsuit that he initiated on behalf of his clients for more in Attorney’s Fees than what Judge Vasaly approved for his greedy ass. Michael F. Cockson wants more than the over $6 million that has already been taken from his poor, misused and abused clients who had been shitted on by the likes of Spiros Zorbalas and Steve Frenz. This greedy bastard, Attorney Michael F. Cockson would sue a roach if it crawled across his shoe and demand even more in Attorney’s Fees if he knew he could get away with it and since it is quite obvious that in his opinion, his clients in this case are the equivalent of roaches, that is what he is doing.

People who were already shitted on by slumlords while living in slums are now to be shitted on by the attorney who agreed to take this case in an attempt to obtain compensation for those who had been wronged and instead of attempting to right those wrongs, Attorney Michael F. Cockson has joined with Steve Frenz and Spiros Zorbalas in doing more wrong to those who are likened to roaches.

Attorney Michael F. Cockson is a PARTNER in the law firm, FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402 and so we know that he is not leaving his opulent downtown Minneapolis law office and heading to a slum. The man is extremely wealthy and yet he is committing a grave injustice against people who still have no voice since they don’t have a voice they can use to push back against what their own sheisty attorney is doing to them. How this sheisty bastard sleeps at night is a complete and utter mystery to me, but then again, he is white and so that right there explains it. They don’t give a shit for making things right. They don’t give a shit for leveling the playing field for those who are poor and whose rights are trampled on, daily. Those like Michael F. Cockson will take a case, not because they want to attempt to make people whole who have been misused and abused, they take those cases because they can attempt to make themselves look good by pretending concern for the poor and downtrodden while at the same time, leaving them peanuts while they walk away with millions and then are still dissatisfied by the millions they are initially awarded. Those greedy bastards then turn around and sue their own clients for more of their settlement monies for why else is my cousin’s settlement check a mere $724.15 and Attorney Michael F. Cockson’s initial take is over $6 million? How is that justice by ANY stretch of the imagination?

And so for those of you who had questions and concerns, I have cleared up as much of this mess as I can. For further clarity on this class action lawsuit, I suggest that you contact those who are responsible for why you have so many questions and concerns and so once again, I will post their contact information below.

Power Of The Black Collective — changingthenarrative

I am a dark skin black woman who was born in the UK and was raised in the USA. I moved back to the UK and have been living in the UK since 2006. I do not identify with being American or British because neither of the two respect or honor black people and wish […]

I am so lucky to be raised in USA because it has opened to eyes to see how black people in the UK are treated and we are NOT treated better than black people in USA. We are systematically kept from connecting with each other and realizing our potential as well as knowing and learning from each other.

via Power Of The Black Collective — changingthenarrative

This bears repeating!

“We are systematically kept from connecting with each other and realizing our potential as well as knowing and learning from each other.”

And by this, she means that we are SEGREGATED from each other! Never mind being ‘segregated’ from the whites. I’d love that! I wish we’d always been ‘segregated’ from the whites. If we had, we would not be where we are now. Segregation was more helpful for us than we will ever know.

What does segregation mean?

the enforced separation of different racial groups in a country, community, or establishment.

the action or state of setting someone or something apart from other people or things or being set apart.

Because we allowed ourselves to fall for the whites’ shit in supposedly ‘desegregating’ us from them, what we allowed to happen was the fact that we ‘segregated’ ourselves from one another. After that, we became enemies. Where once we looked out for one another, now we no longer are willing to help pull each other up. We look at one another as enemies instead while the whites sit back in glee and watch us crash and burn.

All you need do is take a look around and see why ‘desegregation’ was not a good thing for Amerikkkan descendants of slaves because for those of you who grew up in the 70s and early 80s, tell me how many Black prostitutes, homeless people and drug addicts did you see? I can honestly say that when I was growing up, I never saw a prostitute or a homeless person. In fact, it was when I was almost an adult was when I first became aware of drugs and that was in the mid 80s when I heard about crack. I had only heard of weed once before I was married and my ex-husband’s friend asked him if he could smoke some weed in our house and I said, “Hell no! We don’t allow smoking in here!” The first I heard about weed was when I found out that my baby sister had been smoking it with her boyfriend, but even then I didn’t even know what it was. That’s how clueless I’ve always been about illicit drugs and why I am SO against drugs, it ain’t even funny.

Maybe because I am from a small town and not a big city is why I was never bombarded with all of the horrors that can be found in big cities. Yes, my baby sister did eventually take up crack, but that was after I was gone from the home and so no, crackheads were certainly not streaming past me every single day. I had to hear by way of a long distance telephone call that my sister was on crack and I’m like, “What’s that?” Nowadays, who the hell can say that? We allowed the whites to introduce that shit into our communities and it was to get us to fall apart in more ways than one and that is exactly what happened.

When we were segregated from the whites and had our own communities, we were the better off for it. There were no whites in my neighborhood and we all got along. Neighbors looked out for the children of their neighbors. Backyard barbecues became neighborhood barbecues, but that does not happen now and do you know why? Look where we’re at? In HUD housing slums. In inner city hovels owned by slumlords that do nothing but collect the rent and take it back to their gated communities. When I was growing up, Black people owned their own homes, businesses and invested in one  another.

A sad fact is that the Black people of yesteryear who were school teachers, lawyers, doctors, business owners and well-paid factory workers are either elderly and ailing or dead and what’s out here now can’t even read, “See Dick and Jane run!” Now how sad is that? There is no such thing as an inner city education. There is no such thing as a two-parent household. There is no such thing as a mother going to school when the teacher sends home an adverse report card on their child. If I brought home a report card that didn’t look right, my mother made it her business to be over at the school getting to the bottom of why because I was always a straight A student, on Honor Roll and some more shit! Likewise, I was the same way with my son, but that cannot be going down with what I see happening with Black children today. And how I know this is because I have ridden city buses when school was let out and the Black children on those buses were screaming, cussing, yelling, fighting and carrying on. That would not have been going on in my day. That wasn’t even going on in my son’s day, but it sure as hell is going down today.

What in the world do you think is going to come out of that? Certainly not another Maya Angelou, nor another Frederick Douglass, Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, Alice Walker, Octavia Butler, Alex Haley and I could go on and on. But there will be none to follow them if our children are allowed to drop out of school or be herded from a classroom straight into a prison cell simply because we are aiding and abetting the white man in his continued enslavement of our minds, our bodies and our souls. We were better than what we are becoming. We were never, as a people, down for disrespecting our bodies, flaunting our wares to all and sundry, taking up the perversions of the sick whites who are a given when it comes to debauchery, sadism, masochism and all things perverted and unnatural. That was never who we were and I damn sure as hell refuse to take that shit up and neither should you. If you have to stand alone, then stand alone, but it is much better to stand alone than to descend into the depths of depravity which is where the white man can be found; lasciviously salivating over ALL that is perverse, deviant, warped, twisted and sick. And that is what the whites want for us. Just look around you because it is ALL around you! Black rappers are mostly gay. The Black man is becoming emasculated right before our very eyes. Beautiful Black women are being encouraged to mate with white parasites and they are doing so and what they are helping to produce is not even entirely human. For what could be brought forth from whites when all you need do is look around at what is going down with this planet to see what makes whites tick; greed, death, disease and destruction. That is all you will get from whites and the proof is what you see each and every day when you open your eyes. They promote nothing but evil, wars and hatred because that is what they are. But that was never us and it is certainly nothing that we should be having anything to do with or even get next to.

If there is to be any segregation, then segregate yourselves from your mortal foe; the white man. But never segregate yourselves from each other. Come together and get back to understanding that we must find what we once shared. We have got to reach out and help one another because we only have enemies outside of our kind and our kind are those of us who are Amerikkkan descendants of slaves. No one on this planet has the background that we do and no one can understand us like we can understand each other if only we will open our eyes, our hearts and our minds to the fact that we need to get it together, my people! I truly hope that we can. Prove me right, I beg you!

Because Your Ass Is White! A Re-post

Standing on the corner,
I’ve got these drugs for sale.
I turn a teacher into a ho
and I send her straight to hell.

Don’t put the blame on me.
I’m just a businessman.
I’m trying to make a living
the only way I can.

You don’t hate the motherfuckers
that sell you alcohol.
It’s all the same thing
but I’m the one who takes the fall.

My time on this here corner
maybe short, but it ain’t sweet.
I got the cops all on my ass
until I’m just a piece of meat.

I must represent my gang
so don’t cross onto my turf.
Respect the line that’s drawn.
I’m just another serf.

The white man says to me,
“nigga, keep your nose clean!”
as he steals my crack and money
and kicks me in my spleen.

I ain’t got a fancy office
like the thugs on Wall Street.
But I got to live somehow.
Everybody needs to eat.

So, I shot a motherfucker.
And a child got in the way.
I didn’t set this shit in motion.
You know who called the play.

I’m on the evening news
I took a bullet to the head.
I’m just a motherfucker
lying in the morgue, dead.

The shit won’t stop with me.
That just ain’t how it works.
They gone keep those drugs coming
because of all the perks.

How you think I got the drugs?
Did you ever wonder why
I can get a gun and drugs
and make your ass so high?

I was low on the totem pole
and I always knew the score.
Get your head from out your ass.
You know why I was poor!

I was born to be a loser;
to end up dead or in the pen.
You know the goddamn truth.
I was never meant to win.

Blame me for the corruption
that comes down from the top.
You know who calls the shots
and who protects a dirty cop.

But it’s convenient to blame me
for the violence in the hood.
And ignore the burning cross
or the Aryan Brotherhood.

You can turn and look away
from what it’s all about
because in your little white bread world,
you’ll get yours without a doubt.

There ain’t no hungry bellies,
nor are there crack hos on the prowl.
You’ve got the sweetest little setup
while the rest of us live foul.

You sit nicely in the pew
on a fine Sunday morning.
You smile and pay your tithes.
You’ve got no reason to be mourning.

Your brother, he ain’t dead
from a drive by in the night.
You don’t live that kind of life
because your ass is white!

This one bears repeating because it is just as true today as the day I initially wrote it back in April of 2015. What the fuck has changed? Not a goddamn thing except that the situation has gotten worse. Whites commit crimes and are considered “too important to jail,” and yet that shit has never been stated when it comes to descendants of slaves. Whites put ALL of this shit in motion and then sit back and exclaim over how Black people are having to survive. We were set up from the beginning of our fucked up existence in this cesspool of crime and corruption perpetrated by the whites and yet we are the ones who are behind bars; millions of us while whites get off scot-free on every criminal act they commit.

Since slavery, which continues to this very day, we have stood not one goddamn chance in what the whites have turned into a shithole what with their fucking fracking, nuclear waste dumps, cancer causing weed killer, GMO garbage that’s passing for food these days and the fucked up list is endless and yet they continue to pat themselves on their depraved backs like they’re doing everyone a goddamn favor. There is no such thing as healthcare. There is no such thing as a great standard of living for millions. There are homeless tent cities all across this cesspool. Plagues are making a comeback and will only get worse seeing as how entire towns have been flooded and their drinking water that was already loaded down with toxins has been made even more toxic by the fact of flooded waste treatment plants.

Depraved white parasites have doomed us all with their killer technology that is aimed at killing the vast majority of us and our only saving grace is the fact that the shit cannot remain up and running thanks to the hundreds of storms and tornadoes that are busily tearing that shit down. I can only hope the storms continue.

But know this whites, as you try and take us out, millions of you are going first. Millions of you will lose what you have stolen. You have seen to it that we have nothing to lose and that is exactly why I laugh when I see your shit fucked up and floating down the river. I laugh when I read the reports that state that capitalism has been ground to a halt thanks to flooded rivers that once made it possible for your products to make it to consumers. I laugh when I can only see the roofs of your palatial homes because Mother Nature decided to re-gentrify your shit with water. She’s moved your ass out of the way to make way for water. I laugh when I see pale asses sitting up in tents waiting on some federal funds from the Trump Administration and if you ever receive any funds, you’ll more than likely have been hit with yet another storm and Trump is going to get tired of bailing even your pale asses out. Just ask those who live in Puerto Rico.

And yeah! Drugs have made their way into rural areas, upscale areas and other areas that were not saturated with drugs since whites originally dumped massive amounts of crack and other drugs in Black communities and watched the shit unfold. Now the shit is unfolding in your communities and you ain’t hardly happy about that shit. Neither were we when you saturated our neighborhoods with that shit, but your nasty ass didn’t even blink over it. And I’m not even blinking over your plight. Now, you’ve got hungry bellies, growling and some more shit since your beloved racist Trump cut the hell out of the food stamp program but because he stands for exactly what you are, you still support him even though he would not even spit on your ass if it was on fire to help put it out.

Thankfully, the day has come that more and more whites are finally reaping what they have been sowing for hundreds of years. You could turn and look away at one point in time, but not anymore. That shit’s now your problem to deal with. Sink, motherfuckers, sink into that lovely brown water that’s flooded a great deal of this shithole and it shall continue because your ass is white!

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not Bloody Likely!

 

On a blog I posted in April of 2018, titled, “Americans Are Too Stupid To Realize That America Is A Fake Ass Disneyland! Smoke and Mirrors, People! Smoke and Mirrors! Read The Comments On This Article And Get A Damn Clue,” a comment posted on that blog made me sit and think for a spell. Below is the comment from qnubian528.

“People who aren’t from America had always see US “the big apple,the land of the thousand opportunities!”
That’s bullshit! What I always understood isn’t country of thousands opportunities,where “inequality” is a host,you can’t call civilize country where its own people can’t have free access on healthcare,but you can have free access to guns or every accessories that can kill human being!
Wow America country of thousands opportunities one of the bullshit I’ve ever heard!”

This bears repeating: “civilize country where its own people can’t have free access on healthcare, but you can have free access to guns or every accessories that can kill human being!”

That is so indicative of what this fucked up country stands for, it ain’t even funny. And millions do not have access to free healthcare and for those who do have access to healthcare, that healthcare is substandard. Only the rich can get great healthcare. The rest of us are dealing with healthcare that is comparable to what passed for healthcare in 1810 since what the fuck has changed as it relates to healthcare since? More women, especially Black women are dying in childbirth in what is supposed to be a ‘developed’ country than ever before, but in all actuality is more like a third world country. How in the world are people dying from childbirth in America? That makes no sense whatsoever, not unless it is ALL done by design and then it makes perfect sense.

And what about the shit that’s always on the news, the fact that yet another American has gone on a rampage and murdered multiple people and after the fact, law enforcement then finds a stash of assault weapons, multiple rounds of ammunition and enough guns and ammo to kill thousands. Meanwhile, the shooter’s mental health is questioned.

But now it is time to celebrate why hundreds of thousands of Americans have died in so many wars, I’ve lost count. It is time to celebrate the fact that this country loves war. America is in love with war and don’t say that it is not because if America was not in love with war, why then in the year 2019, is this country STILL at war and STILL trying to find some country to be at war with? War is ALL this country has ever known. The first ‘illegal’ colonizers warred with the Indians for this land and that set the standard; if you want something, go to war. If you want someone else’s land, go to war. If you want to build the country on the backs of another continent’s people, battle those people for their people, subdue them and then take the people from that continent. If you want some country’s oil, go to war and kill them and take over their oil. If you want an American company to be able to strip another country of its natural resources, go to war against that country. For whatever contrived reason, this country MUST be at war.

However, I refuse to celebrate war because that is exactly what we are doing when we celebrate Memorial Day. We are honoring, not a need for people to have died in wars, we are honoring the fact that people fought in elective wars. And what does ‘elective’ mean? It means we ‘chose’ to go to war. We did not have to, but because this nation is a nation of warmongers and war hawks, this is why we celebrate war. Don’t hand me that bullshit about how we are honoring our ‘war dead’ since they did not have to die. They did not have to suit up and be sent to foreign shores to die over an elective war; a war of choice. It has been stated that this country has been at war for over 220 of its 242 year history. This is what we are celebrating and believe me, that is nothing to celebrate. You people are sick and twisted who go around celebrating this shit with parades and cookouts and some more shit!

People don’t have free healthcare because our money is being spent on killing people and claiming what’s not ours to claim. We glorify guns and screech about the 2nd Amendment as if that is the only Amendment that’s worth a damn! All other Amendments pale in comparison to the 2nd Amendment especially seeing as how the 13th Amendment did not abolish slavery for if it did, there would not be over 2.3 million Black slaves sitting all up in prisons on bullshit drug charges, slaving away making shit for free to be sold by corporations and quite frankly, the 1st Amendment don’t mean shit either since what the hell is free speech these days when people can be jailed for publishing the fact that this shithole committed untold war crimes and crimes against humanity and free speech is being curtailed even as I type this? If some platform that I use to get my message out has a problem with my message, then my message gets shut down. And we all know that only whites own the platforms that people use to be heard. The news coverage is brought to us by white faces. Those who own the networks are all white. Those who own the newspapers and magazines are all white. Every media platform is owned by whites and whites have long been known for re-writing history to gloss over the vile ass shit they do and they are at it to this very day. And of course, whites are behind the celebrating of war with this Memorial Day celebration bullshit whereas we celebrate people who have died fighting in elective wars by hosting parades, throwing cookouts and watching baseball games. So go to a parade, munch down on a hotdog and then attend a baseball game, but don’t forget to take advantage of all those Memorial Day savings at the few remaining brick and mortar stores or better yet, order some plastic shit on Amazon and demand that it get to you the same fucking day because you’re celebrating war!

This bears repeating! “”Americans Are Too Stupid To Realize That America Is A Fake Ass Disneyland! Smoke and Mirrors, People! Smoke and Mirrors!” And I am quite sure that there are thousands of stupid ass Americans who will be lined up at Disneyland and at Disney World to celebrate war! And when Disneyland and Disney World close for the evening, that fake ass Cinderella will drag her tired ass to Motel 6 until her ‘magical’ shift begins the next day. Don’t fucking think about that or about the fact that those workers at Disneyland and Disney World are living like shit! Their lives are certainly not the stuff of dreams, but of nightmares of food insecurity, no healthcare, back breaking work, long hours in the heat and rain, motel living quarters and thankless Disneyland patrons.

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not bloody likely!

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 a 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 us, 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 would ever strike on cue!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing! War is a blessing because we get a day off to attend parades, eat hot dogs, drink beer and be thankful over how ‘free’ we are that we can still board an airplane after having been molested and radiated. We are free!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing! War is a blessing because we get to sit on our fat asses and forget about all the people who were killed by our sons protecting what? Freedom? We don’t have ANY freedom! Try not going through security to board an airplane and your ass will land in jail so fast, you won’t even have time to collect your wallet. Try protesting longer than your ‘permit’ allows and you’ll find your ass in jail so fast, your head will be spinning. Try lounging around on a sidewalk while homeless and see how free your ass is. You’ll be locked up before you can count to two. Try selling some un-taxed cigarettes on a New York street and if you’re a descendant of slaves, you’ll be choked to death and your killer will walk free. Try being a child descendant of slaves playing in a park with a TOY gun and you’re dead, two seconds after the official slave patrols pull up on you! Try driving down the goddamn street and you’ll end up dead, hanged in a Texas jail because you’re a Black woman. Try going to the hospital because you feel ill and you’re Black-assed, you’ll end up in the morgue. Yeah, wars are fought to protect NO freedoms that we go on and on about since we love the illusion of freedom which is why we love Disneyland and Disney World. We love our illusions! War is for other people to fight! But you’re fine because you’ve got a ticket to Disneyland!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing for the warmongers and war hawks who are in bed with the makers of the war weapons(Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Crew), you know who the warmongers are. They are AmeriKKKa’s politicians; Barack ‘Nobel Peace Prize Insane’ Obadroner, KillarE ‘Whitewater scandal Benghazigate Emailgate Big ass Jockstrap’ Clinton, Bernie “I believe in the drone program” Sanders, Combover “Build A Wall to Keep THOSE Illegals Out, Never mind us pink-assed motherfuckers, Indians? What Indians?” TrumpDump! And who makes the war machine possible? Why, our sons and soon…our daughters because the military generals have said that it is high time women saw some combat action. And guess why women are now necessary for the military. Can’t guess? You’re celebrating WHY! The ‘troops’ are dead, dying and committing suicide from being fucked up in the head after having been deployed too many goddamn times! You don’t get that? No, of course you don’t because all you know is that today gave you an excuse to sit back and indulge in too much alcohol, hot dogs and sun! Burn motherfuckers! Burn! Because one of these days, your turn is coming. So, eat, drink and be merry since you don’t really give a damn for the war dead because if you did, the last thing you would be doing in honor of their memory, is eating, drinking and sitting at a goddamn parade!

And when the troops do make it back to America from having whored themselves out to the warmongers and war hawks and they need some anti-suicide help, where is your ass after you finish sitting at the parade grounds, stuffing your face on hotdogs? You are nowhere to be found to man the suicide hotlines for those fucked up in the head soldiers that make it back.

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold, Please!”

The VA, has been swamped with calls since opening in 2007. The volume increased from fewer than 10,000 in 2007 to more than 500,000 last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.

A 2010 calculation by the VA estimates that 22 veterans kill themselves each day. The VA, which has not updated that estimate, says the hotline “rescues” 30 veterans from suicide each day.

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.

So, the people who are trained to deal with potential suicides handle only one to five calls a day? For real? And after having listened to one suicidal former service member, they are out the door and oh what a great day it is, eh? Then, those who are on backup are sitting somewhere looking cross-eyed for lack of training or know-how in dealing with the ’emotional problems’ that they are hearing from the former servicemen. Go figure!

You sit somewhere on your stupid ass and think that “thank you for your service” gets the job done when you know damn well that a fucked up in the head veteran needs more than your worthless ass ‘thank yous’. What the hell are they supposed to do with a “thank you?” Cure their mental illness with it? House themselves with it? Stop drinking because of it? Take it and use it as a prosthetic? You brain dead, dumb as all hell Americans make me sick with your reasoning that you should always be able to take the easy way out. As long as you don’t have to suit up and kill someone you’ve never met, what’s the big deal? Well the big deal is that this is yet another reason why you are going to pay for this shit. This is why your shit is continuously getting flooded and hit with tornadoes and some more shit because you don’t give a damn about anybody besides your own worthless hide. I am SO very glad that millions of you are sitting somewhere moaning and wailing over the fact that life as you know it has ended. And I am SO very glad that millions more of you are soon to join them and so believe me, you have absolutely nothing to celebrate! I guarantee it! Fuck you and fuck your Memorial Day celebrations! They and you are meaningless!

What???!!!! Another Massive Storm System??!! Keep ‘Em Coming Now!

This is going to be another one of my more popular visual posts and so sit back and watch the result of Mother Nature in ALL her destructive glory!

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — An outbreak of nasty storms spawned tornadoes that razed homes, flattened trees and tossed cars across a dealership lot, injuring about two dozen people in Missouri’s capital city and killing at least three others elsewhere in the state.

The National Weather Service confirmed that a large and destructive twister moved over Jefferson City shortly before midnight Wednesday.

And so without  further ado, let’s get started!

This bears repeating, STATES IMPACTED BY MAJOR FLOODING ARE KANSAS, OKLAHOMA, MISSOURI, NEBRASKA, ALABAMA, IOWA AND TEXAS AND CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, THEY ARE ALL REPUBLICAN STATES??!!! Go figure!

Now where is Trump and Pence? Where are ALL the republicans that you guys voted for? What have they done for you lately? Those pictures are clear examples of Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, “MAKE AMERIKKKA GREAT AGAIN!” Amerikkka is looking SO great!

Don’t that shit up there look great??!! Who wants to buy one of those fucked up cars? Who wants to buy the house that went floating on down the river? Who wants to cuddle up in their roofless home tonight? You can get real cozy by just building a fire in the middle of ALL that devastation and toast some marshmallows. S’mores, anyone? And I am pretty sure that the 5G technology that Verizon or T-Mobile or US Cellular or C Spire had managed to throw up is still up and working and not lying in a heap with the rest of the poles and lines.

Was it just a day or so ago that I stated that even as humans are too stupid for words and will embrace their own demise, thankfully Mother Nature to the rescue to help us out??!! “Thank you Mother Nature!” That 5G shit that’s going to kill us is going to have a time trying to get up and running what with you tearing unholy hell out of that shit! Keep it up!

Not to mention, the situation is getting more dire by the nanosecond since it has also been reported that those rich whites who live by the Great Lakes are in for it as well. It seems that since whites are the cause of climate change, global warming or whatever you want to call it, they are finding themselves not immune to the shit they’ve put in play. It would appear that your lakefront homes are going to be “In The Lake Homes.”

Rising Waters: Lake Ontario continues to near record levels of 2017 despite outflow increase. Lakeshore Flood Watch in effect late tonight (Port Bay/Huron, NY). @News_8 @spann @JimCantore @StormHour @StephanieAbrams @wnywxguy @wxbywilliams @JimTeskeNC9

 

As I’ve already stated, even the rich who can afford to live in big, fancy, luxurious homes on the lake are finding themselves caught up in a ‘State of Emergency’ and New York’s Governor Cuomo has dragged his tired ass on up there to reassure his rich constituents that they will have as many sandbags as they need to keep The Great Lakes at ‘bay’. HA! That IS funny! Sandbags against The Great Lakes? I’ll take “The Great Lakes for a thousand Alex!” Hell if I’d bet on some goddamn sandbags.

Communities surrounding the Great Lakes are preparing for the worst, as the bulging lakes are forecast to set water level records over the next six months. Both state and local government officials have addressed the flood threat. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo traveled to a lakefront community in western New York earlier this week to survey the flood risk.

Yeah Cuomo, you “survey the flood risk” and then drag your impotent ass on back to the governor’s mansion that will also be impacted by severe weather. This shit’s going to get around to affecting your depraved ass, count on it.

And once again, if I seem to be amused by all of this, it is because I am amused by all of this because even though a few Black people are impacted by this shit, by and large, the greater number who are impacted happen to be of the pale-skinned variety. You own this and so just sit back in your tents or hastily erected shelters provided by the Red Cross and reflect on the vile ass shit you’ve done that’s now coming ‘home’ to roost all up your ass! This shit’s not letting up and the sooner you recognize that, the sooner you can get used to living like the original inhabitants of this country lived before your debased ancestors sashayed on over here and stole it from them while you continued to reap what they stole. It ain’t so funny now, is it? You ain’t even begun to get the shit that’s coming for your pale asses. And remember to come on up in here when your internet service gets back up and running and moan, wail and whine as you watch your shit float on down the river; rich and poor whites alike. None of you are going to escape your fucking fate! Count on it! And don’t forget, I am laughing my ass off because I don’t claim to own a goddamn thing. That’s what you arrogant white shits believe. Where is your shit now? What river or lake is it floating down? HA! This is ‘rich’!

“And again, thank you Mother Nature! Ever the equalizer, you are!”

 

The Forgotten Tale of How Black Psychiatrists Helped Make Sesame Street, the children’s television show entranced preschoolers—and helped teach impressionable black kids. — The Most Revolutionary Act

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Photos Getty In the wake of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968, a newly formed group called the Black Psychiatrists of America began to challenge their white colleagues to think about racism in a new way. Its members had been discussing for some time the […]

via The Forgotten Tale of How Black Psychiatrists Helped Make Sesame Street, the children’s television show entranced preschoolers—and helped teach impressionable black kids. — The Most Revolutionary Act

Below is a comment I posted on this article.

“There is no way that Black people, who are mentally ill, can go to whites and expect and receive help because the main reason why many Black people are mentally ill is due to the horrendous racism that we are exposed to, constantly. How then are we supposed to get relief from the very ones who are why we are mentally ill?

When I was in Minnesota, my cousin was seeing white mental health ‘care’ professionals and they filled him so full of poisons, I went to that mental health ‘care’ facility and threw fits. I pointed out the obvious in that the place was filled to bursting with descendants of slaves who had been sent to that facility by the courts which are set up to set up descendants of slaves. I pointed out the fact that there were no Black doctors or therapists on staff and I even filed a complaint with the board. I’ll have you know that the next time I visited that establishment with my cousin, he was asked if he wanted to see a BLACK psychiatrist and a BLACK therapist. There had been none before that time! I refuse to sit somewhere and allow us to get mistreated. If we don’t speak up for ourselves, we will continue to be mistreated and I am having none of it!

He now has to see a Black psychiatrist via Skype since no Black psychiatrist in their right mind would come down here to Hillbilly Hollow, but he requested to see a Black psychiatrist and even though it is via Skype, that is who he is seeing. He requested a Black case manager and that is who he has. His primary care doctor is Black and everyone he sees for his care is Black. We insist upon it and we ALWAYS will. If one refuses to come to us, we come to them or via Skype, but we would have it no other way! And it shouldn’t be any other way! And Black psychiatrists are very much aware of why Black people request them! They know the deal! Just as those depicted in this article knew the deal. It may be a ‘forgotten tale’, but this shit cannot be ‘forgotten’ by us since we still suffer from untold atrocities from being caught up in a system we wanted no part of because we did not immigrate here, our ancestors were dragged here. This shit’s not on us!”

———————————————————————————————————–

American descendants of slaves, I cannot stress to you enough that enough is enough! If we don’t stand up for ourselves, no one else will. We are not here to win a popularity contest and I don’t care who hates my guts, I am going to tell it like it is. When I see fucked up shit, I call it out! If you don’t, you will continue to get shitted on. Get up off that stupid dumbass Facebook and Twitter shit and take a stand against the shit that’s shoved down our throats, daily. You see that I don’t take shit shoved down my throat and you don’t have to either. Whites ain’t fucking playing with us and I ain’t fucking playing with them. You have no idea how much you can accomplish if you simply stand up for yourself and believe me, when you do, you are also helping someone else who looks just like you! Try it! You’ll find out just how right I am. The white devils count on us thinking that we’ve got no choice but to put up with their shit. Show them that you ain’t no punk ass bitch that’ll put up with their racism, prejudice, bigotry and some mo shit! I don’t tolerate their shit and you don’t have to either! To hell with them and their shit!

Why do you think that this article is titled, “The forgotten tale of how Black psychiatrists helped make Sesame Street, the children’s television show entranced preschoolers-and helped teach impressionable Black kids?” It is because everything that we do that’s wonderful is to be ‘forgotten’, overlooked, ignored. The only shit we are to be recognized for is for being criminals and drug addicts, but that’s not who or what we are.

When I lived in Minnesota, I lived in a small town in the middle of no goddamn where that didn’t even have bus service. When I looked at my first electric bill, I noticed that the bill contained a ‘transit tax’. Now, I’m thinking, “What the hell am I paying a ‘transit tax’ for when there is no ‘transit’ out in the middle of this godforsaken nowhere? I picked up the phone and called Metro Transit and asked about that shit. Guess the fuck what! Those worthless white-assed motherfuckers had decided to bring mass transit to the area and after multiple plans and charts and drafts had been drawn up, decided that it just wasn’t feasible to bring bus service to that area. And yet, they continued to charge everyone who lived in that small town, a ‘transit tax’ even though those white fuckers had scrapped bringing transit to the town. Now, this town had mostly white asses in it and yet they were too stupid to look at their electric bill, see that they were paying a ‘transit tax’ and yet there was not a bus or light rail or subway stop any goddamn where! You see, this is how stupid whites really are and yet, they try and portray us as the damn dummies! I screeched and hollered and threatened to go door to door and tell every damn body in that town that they had been paying a transit tax for FOUR, that’s 4 goddamn years for nothing! I told MNDOT(Minnesota Department of Transportation and Metro Transit that I was filing charges of fraud against them for defrauding people out of their money since that is exactly what they did. Guess the fuck what! Transit was introduced to that goddamn city and I was called by the City Administrator and was told that “thanks to you, bus service is being started up and that there was going to be a ribbon cutting ceremony and that I would be requested to speak.” When the bitch found out that I was Black, all that shit changed. The white bitch that they had paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to for her land on which to build the Park and Ride, was featured in the newspaper. The Park and Ride was named for her ass and I was never even an afterthought. But even so, when Metro Transit came in, they took away that goddamn sign with her fucking name on it and put up “Metro Transit Park And Ride.” So the city authorized and paid for, with our tax dollars, a big ass brick sign with her name and ‘Park and Ride’ chiseled on it, all for nothing. Whites are lethal and ferocious in their fucking racism!

Now do you see how fucking racist whites are?!!! Were you ever in ANY doubt because if so, I’ve erased any and all of it! Those racist bastards never publicly acknowledged that I was the reason bus service was brought to that area and they never will, but I got the satisfaction of pissing off multiple whites while at the same time, helping the few Black people who lived in that area have reliable transportation to and from Minneapolis, MN. This is what we can do Black folks when we put our mind to it! And even though we don’t get recognized for our accomplishments and achievements, don’t let that deter you from trying. It has never deterred me and it won’t. Those white bastards want us to give up when we never receive recognition for the great and good things we do, but it ain’t about their awards and shit, it’s about the fact that we don’t give up and we help one another out! So keep on keeping on, but you ain’t going to get it done by sitting all up on Facebook and Twitter. That shit is meaningless. Do something meaningful for a change and you can make a difference! Believe me, I know!

Justine Damond’s Family Agrees To $20 Million Dollar Wrongful Death Settlement While Philando Castile’s Family Had To Settle For $2.995 Million Over His Wrongful Death. Why Was Damond’s ‘White’ Ass Worth More Than Philando Castile???

I would be the biggest liar in the world if I said that I didn’t already know before a settlement had been reached that the family of Justine Damond would receive what amounts to a king’s ransom compared to what Philando Castile’s mother received over the wrongful death of her son because make no mistake, Philando Castile did absolutely nothing wrong but was still shot dead by former Minneapolis Latino Police Officer, Jeronimo Yanez.

Let’s start with Justine Damond’s case.

Justine Damond’s family agrees to $20 million settlement with Minneapolis over police shooting death

The city of Minneapolis agreed to a $20 million settlement with the family of a woman shot dead by a police officer who was convicted of murder, lawmakers announced on Friday.

The settlement came just three days after jurors convicted the former officer, Mohamed Noor, of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the July 15, 2017, slaying of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a dual citizen of the United States and Australia.

So because Black lives don’t matter and white lives do, Justine Damond’s family is to receive $20 million Amerikkkan dollars to take back to Australia simply because she chose to come to Amerikkka; the land of enraged gun-toting nuts and killer cops and expected to live a life free from the perils of a violent society that has been this way from the very minute it was wrested from the Indians. Her expectations were to be that no harm could ever come to her because her ‘white privilege’ would keep her from experiencing any unpleasantness and also the fact that she lived in an upscale area of South Minneapolis thus ensuring that she not rub shoulders with the seedy side of this shithole. Anyone coming to Amerikkka should already know that this hole is the absolute breeding ground for hate, violence and murder. That will never change because that is the very essence of Amerikkka and I don’t know who in their right mind comes here with any other expectation other than what I have noted here because if so, then they are in for a rude awakening or as was the case with Justine Damond, a violent death because everyone is so damn fearful, especially cops who though fearful for their worthless lives, join the police force and then when faced with a loud noise or a Black person, immediately get to shooting because they are just so damn fearful. Here’s an idea. Take that gun off. Take that blue uniform off and go hide in your mama’s basement and shut the fuck up about how fucking fearful you are. That’ll solve that shit right there. If cops were told that they had to give up their patrol cars, give up their guns and walk the beat with only a billy club, they would ALL quit in one fell swoop and don’t we all fucking know this! Those namby-pamby shit their pants, snot nosed cowards can’t even find their balls until they put that gun in a holster on their flabby ass hip. And the rest of us have to pay the price for their scared shitless ass antics either in the form of bodies showing up at the morgue with a cop’s bullet in them or through our tax dollars going to payouts for wrongful death lawsuits. If you had just an inkling of the amount of money that has been paid to the families of people wrongfully killed by cops, the numbers should astound you and yet you sit somewhere taking up for those pigs as though they are doing us a fucking favor when the only favor they could do us is to quit.

And so now we come to Philando Castile’s case.

Family reaches $2.995M settlement in Philando Castile’s death

MINNEAPOLIS — The mother of Philando Castile, a black motorist killed by a Minnesota police officer last year, has reached a nearly $3 million settlement in his death, according to an announcement Monday by her attorneys and the Minneapolis suburb that employed the officer.

The settlement to be paid to Valerie Castile will avoid a federal wrongful death lawsuit stemming from Philando Castile’s death. The 32-year-old elementary school cafeteria worker was killed by St. Anthony officer Jeronimo Yanez during a traffic stop July 6 after Castile told the officer he was armed. Castile had a permit for his gun.

Those racist bastards couldn’t even see fit to give the mother of that slain innocent man the full $3M. They nickle and dimed that man’s death like he was meaningless. And the lawyer received most of that money. They always do. Even when a Black person receives a settlement that wouldn’t even keep an ant colony fed, the attorneys receive their fees right off the top before the money is even handed to the victim.

But why did Justine Damond warrant a $20 million dollar payout and Philando Castile only warranted a $2.995 million dollar payout when both were equally innocent? Neither had done anything wrong. Justine Damond had called the police on a suspected assault outside her South Minneapolis home and she got shot dead for her efforts. Philando Castile was pulled over because according to Latino police officer Jeronimo Yanez, he resembled a ‘wide-nosed’ Black suspect who had robbed a store a few days prior to him pulling over Philando Castile. So, Castile was murdered by Jeronimo Yanez because he was Black and had a ‘wide’ nose. So again I ask, “What the hell did Philando Castile do to cause Jeronimo Yanez to murder him? Not a goddamn thing!

These are the final moments of Philando Castile’s life!

During his trial, Yanez, 29, testified that Castile ignored his commands not to pull out his gun. The officer said he feared for his life. According to squad-car video that captured the shooting, Castile said: “I’m not pulling it out” before Yanez fired seven rapid shots. Castile’s last words after the shooting were “I wasn’t reaching …”

Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, later said Castile was reaching for his wallet.

The squad-car video shows the shooting, but does not show what happened inside the car or what Yanez saw, leaving room for reasonable doubt.

Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, can be heard screaming. The young girl responds by saying, “Mom, please stop cussing and screaming ’cause I don’t want you to get shooted. I can keep you safe.”

As the young girl comforts her mother, the video shows the pair praying, unaware Castile has died.

Philando Castile, even as he was dying was still trying to tell Jeronimo Yanez that he was not reaching for the gun that he had already told him he had a permit to carry. Why would Philando Castile, who had no criminal record and who had a permit to carry a gun and told the officer he had a permit to carry a gun, pull out a gun when the man wasn’t stupid, he knew how fearful cops are when they pull over a Black man? And to say that there was “room for reasonable doubt” meaning that what descendants of slaves say does not matter and will never matter because they were not about to believe what the little girl in the car would say on the witness stand. They were not about to believe what Philando Castile’s girlfriend would say on the witness stand, but if a white motherfucker had been inside that vehicle, they would have taken his/her word for what happened. This shit is just making me shake with rage!

Once again, Philando Castile never asked to be born in this shithole. He did not board a plane and fly here. His ancestors were dragged here and he was making the most of a horrible situation and yet, he was targeted because he resembled a robbery suspect with a ‘wide’ nose? He was pulled over and murdered because he was a Black man with a ‘wide’ nose? And yet there was no “room for reasonable” doubt in that Jeronimo Yanez had no reason whatsoever to “fear for his worthless ass life?” Seriously???!!!

A little girl sitting in a car where seven shots are fired straight into it killing the driver and she sits there while her mother is screaming and she says, “Mom, please stop cussing and screaming ’cause I don’t want you to get shooted. I can keep you safe.”

Child, the sad part is that we cannot even keep you safe, beautiful little brave one. This little girl is braver than I could ever be because I would be seriously mentally unstable after that. This is why I am enraged. This is why I will never let up when it comes to showcasing the glaring difference in how cases are treated when there is a Black victim as opposed to a white victim. Philando Castile was just as innocent of any crime as was Justine Damond and yet his family received for his murder, $2.995 million dollars while Justine Damond’s family received $20 million dollars. No nickle and diming there for Justine ‘Goldilocks’ Damond.

Philando Castile’s words before he was shot. “I’m not pulling it out!”

Philando Castile’s last words after having been shot seven times. “I wasn’t reaching …”

And the whites say that the taking of your life was only worth $2.995 million while the taking of ‘white’ Justine Damond’s life was worth $20 million and a little Black girl sits in the back seat witnessing murder and in the midst of it all says, “Mom, please stop cussing and screaming ’cause I don’t want you to get shooted. I can keep you safe.”

Tears are streaming down my face because I am so very tired and yet we are expected to get up each day and ‘love’ those who are systematically destroying us as though we are not even human. I am going to keep this one civil because I SO want to unload on these white devils so damn bad, I am aching with the force of having to keep it under control.

Mumia Abu-Jamal wins right to re-open appeals — Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement

“Abu-Jamal’s attorneys will argue against the constitutional violations that unfairly convicted the imprisoned journalist who is suffering from the ravages of Hepatitis C and glaucoma.”

Just as I stated on another blog about this, the man is about to drop dead and so this bit of grandstanding is ridiculous. When it counted, the man should have been granted the right to have his appeals heard, but since he is dying from the ravages of disease, now is the time to grant him the right to have his appeals heard??!!! Seriously??!!! The ‘white’ man is not doing Abu-Jamal any favors with these latest shenanigans. I have seen far too many Black prisoners get out of prison because they are just about dead and so let them out because they are literally dead men and women walking. Fuck this shit!

Let’s ALL thank whitey-pink ass for extending to a dead man walking the right to re-open his appeals. Like that fucking matters since the man is now ravaged by disease and has been the Fed’s incarcerated slave for the last 37 goddamn years. Whitey-pink ass, you’ll never get a goddamn ‘thanks’ from me for a goddamn thing so stick this latest shit up your ass, you bunch of depraved, debased parasites! Fuck you!

The Most Revolutionary Act

https://bit.ly/2GfK0VC

Community activists and leaders from the Philadelphia region will hold a news conference 12 noon, Thursday, April 18 at the Octavius V. Catto Statue on the south side of Philadelphia City Hall to discuss today’s decision by District Attorney Larry Krasner to finally relent to Pennsylvania Common Pleas Court Judge Leon Tucker’s ground-breaking decision which gives political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal the right to reopen his appeals.

By rescinding his appeal, Krasner has removed a major hurdle for Abu-Jamal to eventually be released after 37 years in prison. This is a significant development in Abu-Jamal’s quest for freedom.

Public pressure on Krasner’s office to do the right thing and rescind the appeal gained momentum in early February when Yale Law School students publicly withdrew their invitation to Krasner to deliver a keynote address to their Rebellious Lawyering (Reb/Law) conference. In Philadelphia, activists often confronted Krasner whenever he spoke in public…

James Baldwin – I Am Not Your Negro — The Most Revolutionary Act

I Am Not Your Negro Directed by Raoul Peck (2016) Film Review This documentary is based on the unfinished manuscript of African American author James Baldwin’s book Remember This House. Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson (in the voice of Baldwin), the film explores the history of racism in the United States through Baldwin’s reminiscences […]

via James Baldwin – I Am Not Your Negro — The Most Revolutionary Act

“To ALL you pale-assed parasitic racists out there! I am NOT your Negro! I am NOT your Black! I am NOT your African-American! I am NOT your Colored! You will NOT continue to define who I am. I am NOT your fucked up mentality. And you will NOT continue to hold me responsible for why you motherfuckers are the most deranged and debased psychopaths to ever slither all across this fucking planet! Deal with your shit! It ain’t on us to deal with it. We are sick and tired of your vile shit! So hell no! I am NOT your goddamn Negro!”

And don’t think for one goddamn minute that I am buying the bullshit that you are just too psychotic and deranged to know what the fuck it is you are doing and why. You debased monsters don’t even care about those who fucking look like you and so I am to believe that you could ever give a shit about me? Fuck if I do!

But you sit on your ass and laud Robert F. Kennedy and shed crocodile tears for his dead ass as though he was ‘The Shit’ when in all reality, he was just filthy, stinking shit because you motherfuckers even believe that your shit don’t stink. Well, it’s funky as hell! In fact, your shit is so funky, it would send a skunk, packing!

Yeah! So bring your debased ass on up in here and you will indeed, get a heaping helping of reality because you don’t do reality at all. You’re on some, “I can’t do anything wrong shit because I’m so goddamn benevolent and humanitarian.” Fucking shove that shit up your pale parasitic ass because you are full of it! James Baldwin had to leave this godforsaken shithole in order to get enough peace of mind to continue with his writings because he damn sure as hell could get no peace from the likes of you depraved slugs. And he only came back because he got to thinking of those who look like him who were still over in this shithole getting their ass kicked by the most vile and loathsome worms to ever slither across this planet. But how he got any peace over in France is a complete and utter mystery to me especially seeing as how those creatures over there are just as debased as what’s hatched over here! Ain’t no goddamn where to go to get away from you racist pale-assed parasites, though we fucking try! So, if you think that I am going tread lightly for fear of hurting feelings you don’t even possess, fucking think again! I don’t give a damn if I have ZERO followers, I’m fucking telling it like it is ’cause I fucking keep it real! Fuck you motherfuckers!

And to show how fucking debased you are, this is the latest to come down the goddamn pike!

Police release body-cam video of fatal officer-involved shooting at Charlotte Burger King

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has released video of the moments leading up to and after the fatal police shooting of Danquirs Franklin.

The 27-year-old was shot by veteran CMPD officer Wende Kerl, who has been a part of the department since 1995, around 9 a.m. on March 25 in the parking lot of the Burger King on Beatties Ford Road.

That Black man did not aim a gun at the KKKops, but he was shot dead anyway. And a white female parasite shot him! And didn’t yet another white female parasite shoot and kill Botham Shem Jean in his own damn apartment and claim that he was the intruder in his OWN DAMN APARTMENT, and therefore, deserved to get shot dead by her since he refused to obey her commands for him to leave HIS OWN DAMN APARTMENT??!!!

And Black men, you fucking lie down with that filth when it can kill you just as easily as its counterpart can and it does! Those debased creatures are NOT human and so how you can lie down with what’s underneath shit is a complete mystery to me! Flies wouldn’t even land on that foul ass shit and yet you will! Well, consider yourselves warned! Pay no heed and it WILL cost you your life!

But of course, right on schedule, the protest marches have begun. What the hell for??!! Because they have worked SO well thus far! Haven’t they? You still marching and protesting? Why? Has it stopped the murder of us by racist ass KKKops? Hell fucking no! Your lame ass protests don’t mean shit! So don’t even pretend like they do! All the protesting in the world can’t help us! All the great Black writers and their words can’t help us. Black folks like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., having dreams and some more shit can’t fucking help us! Nothing can help us because we are at the mercy of the most godless, depraved, deranged psychopaths to ever slither and that ain’t gonna change! So, fucking save your breath because shouting, “No justice! No peace! Stop the racist police!” ain’t doing a goddamn thing. Wearing out the soles of more shoes ain’t doing a goddamn thing! But go ahead! Waste your fucking time because that’s all you’re doing! But don’t wait for me to join you because I fucking know better! Fuck that shit!

Call Me “Crazy!” But I returned To Baltimore, MD

Baltimore Inner Harbor

 

I know! I know! I said that I would never, ever go back to Baltimore, MD, not after the horrific shit that happened to me and to my cousin, but the truth of the matter is that no matter how horrible things are for you in one place, they can be even more horrible in another place. And where my cousin and I live right now is even worse than Baltimore’s shit. In fact, the reason why we returned to Baltimore, MD is because of where we live now. He was thrown out of the only medical “game” in town and by that I mean that here in Lynchburg, VA, the only medical “game” in town is called, “Centra Health.” They are over every single medical office here in this city. They have the monopoly on the fucked up shit they call ‘health care’. Never come to this city if you want decent health care because these idiots will kill you and that is a fact! If someone actually did research on this shithole burg, they would find plenty of evidence to back up what I have just written about this fucked up mess they call ‘health care’ here in Lynchburg, VA. Hell! Even spellcheck is trying to check my spelling of this damn burg because, apparently, “Lynchburg” is not something that is ‘kosher’, since why would you want to name a city “Lynchburg” in the first goddamn place if you didn’t want to be perceived as racist as hell??!!! Of course, the word from the white parasites that run this shithole burg is that the first white parasite to set up shop here was named John Lynch and so “Lynchburg” was born. HA! Right! It’s because of all the lynching that went on is why this hole is called “Lynchburg.” They even had a lynching tree and the whites here cried all over the goddamn place when the lynching tree was struck by lightning and that was it for that fucked up tree. But as usual, I digress.

Since my cousin was thrown out of the medical system here, we had to go elsewhere for him to receive his medical care and he wanted to go back to his doctor in Baltimore, MD and so we went. In fact, this is our second trip to Baltimore. We went last month because he had a doctor’s appointment and we made another appointment for Monday of this week, but his doctor called us and told us that it would not be necessary for him to be seen so soon since he was doing well. She told us that we were still welcome to come and see her and just have a great time with her talking about our trip and our plans for seeing the sights in Baltimore. Now remember, his doctors here in Lynchburg lied about their reasons for denying him access to their facilities by stating that he “exhibited unsafe behavior towards staff,” and yet his doctor from when we previously lived in Baltimore, MD, not only welcomed him back with open arms, but was quite willing to have us just visit with her. So, who is the goddamn problem? Newsfuckingflash! It’s not my cousin or me! It’s this racist shit here in Lynchburg! And we can’t get out of here fast enough to suit us, goddamn it!

Here I shall post some pictures that we took on this latest Baltimore trip and I fell in love with Baltimore all over again!

Baltimore Inner Harbor by night is just lovely!

And this one!

Beautiful! Just beautiful!

 

And this one as well!

In the mid 90s when I lived here, I was always at the Harbor.

 

I also took a few day time pictures.

The Baltimore Inner Harbor by day

 

And another one by day!

Pretty tree by the harbor in bloom!

 

 

We stayed at the Days Inn Inner Harbor Hotel. It was okay, but I didn’t like the setup whereas the sink was outside of the bath/toilet area.

The tub/toilet is located behind the wall where the picture is and across from that is the sink. Not a great setup at all.

 

At least it had a fridge/microwave. But that was all it had to say for itself. I had some Wyndham rewards points to get rid of since I used to stay at the La Quinta in Bloomington, MN lots of times and now La Quinta is owned by Wyndham and my points switched over to Wyndham. I won’t be staying here anymore.

The microwave was fucked up because the tray didn’t fit and was always bumping up against the microwave.

 

And the decor of the room was not too bright.

I would not recommend Days Inn Inner Harbor Hotel.

 

The ‘motor’ or whatever in the AC/heating unit was carrying on something awful. The only reason we did not request a different room is because the unit that was in the hallway was carrying on equally as bad.

No frills here!

 

Or here!

I finally get around to showing you a picture of where the sink is, outside the bathroom proper. Seriously??!!

But I guess I should not complain!

I would much rather have been here than where the person in this next picture is.

We ‘humans’ find much to complain about and yet, when I went outside and down to the Inner Harbor, I encountered….well…see for yourself.

A homeless man in a wheelchair down by the Inner Harbor

This is exactly what I mean when I say that we ‘humans’ are some real shits when we can sit somewhere and whine because our hotel room is not up to our standards and then turn right around and pass by a homeless person, whose situation is much, much, much worse! And I am not leaving me out in this “we are some real shits” scenario because I pissed and moaned and threatened to go to the Front Desk and complain, but my cousin talked me down from the fucking ceiling. And it did not help that we gave the homeless man some money. He doesn’t need that. What he needs is some mental health care case management, a social worker, some health care and a goddamn roof over his head and I am pretty sure that if I had given up my hotel digs to him, he’d not have complained one goddamn bit! But I am a hypocrite for calling others out when I am just as guilty of being hoity-toity and think my shit don’t stink. It doesn’t because I eat healthy, but that’s beside the point! I am a shameless hypocritical shit for carrying on so about a hotel room when a man is sitting somewhere sick and some mo shit and is uncomplaining while ‘humans’ walk right on by him complaining about their phone needing charging or their fucked up hotel room or about they need their nails done. We are some real sick and twisted shits for not caring about people while we put our stupid asses above those who are the real and true humans who are suffering, mightily. Like this next woman!

A poor homeless woman at the Baltimore Inner Harbor at night.

Yeah! I’m caterwauling over the fact of my hotel sink being outside of the bathroom proper while this woman doesn’t even have a bathroom at all! Again, we gave her money, but what she needs is for people to care enough about others and do something about the seriousness of homelessness over concerning themselves over what’s not up to par for them like a microwave tray banging up against the inside of the microwave or about an AC/heating unit making some fucking noise. And again! I am including myself in this and to show you just how fucking hypocritical I am. I was just relaxing in a bar before heading to the Inner Harbor in order to witness that poor homeless woman slowly making her way around the harbor.

The money we spent on White Zinfandel wine and draft beer could have gone to a homeless person. And I should know better.

And so while we wined and dined, people were out in the streets, with no place to go and no one to give a thought for their well being. But there we sat, just a’swilling drinks while I complained about my room.

My third one! And remember, I gave up drinking til today. And you’ve probably been wondering why my previous pictures were tilted. This would be why.

 

I have said this before and I say it again, “I can’t make you care!” Hell! I am guilty of having a ‘no care’ attitude. But it needs to stop! I need to put the needs of others who are in worse shape than I am in, first. I need to stop with this ‘me first’ attitude. I need to step up to the plate because I am faltering. Yes, we live in a cold, cruel world of people who seem to be immune to the suffering we see all around us on a daily basis and that is a bad way to be. This is why folks shit is flooded out! This is why horrific shit is going down, daily! This is why folks……because we are treating each other like shit and that is going to come home to roost all on our ass! If we continue down this road, there is going to be no hope for us. Bet on that!
