Trump Believes That America Is Clean And Every Other Country Is Dirty And So That Is Why Climate Change Will Not Impact America. Someone, ANYONE, PLEASE Get A Straight Jacket For That Man! Right Now!

I am almost in tears thanks to the absurdity of having someone who should be sitting in the corner of a classroom with a dunce cap on his head, facing the wall but who instead is president of the United States of America. When faced with questions about the climate change report released by his own Administration, Donald Trump responded by saying, “I don’t believe it!” When questioned further on the report, Trump stated that “America is clean, but every other place on earth is dirty. That’s not good.” And apparently, this is why, in his mind, America will never have to act on climate change.

Trump’s own Administration released a dire and massive report on how climate change is going to affect each and every single American and yet, Trump has stated that he does not even believe in the report his Administration just released. How is that even possible? Does the man even know what planet he is on? If you can stand watching this short video, I would advise you to watch it because only by seeing it, will you believe it.

 

The man has clearly gone beyond ‘idiot’ status and is in “The Outer Limits!” And so let me recall to mind some examples of the havoc that climate change has wreaked so far. The next video is the devastation that Hurricane Michael brought to areas of Florida.

As I am sure many of you can recall, Mexico Beach, Florida and Panama City, Florida were all but wiped out and those areas still have not recovered and ‘recovery’ in some cases is years down the road thanks to a horrific hurricane, Hurricane Michael.

Here is Ellicott City, MD this year. This area had just reopened after having gone through a ‘thousand year’s flood in 2016 and another thousand year’s flood occurred this year. Someone, send this to Trump!

And not to be left out, we come to the Midwest.

Even the folks who study charts and graphs as they relate to flooding at the University of Wisconsin-Madison were flooded out along with their charts and graphs and stats. Both were sent floating down the street.

Let us not forget Houston, TX. It was called, an historic flood and judging from the video, it was.

So, as you can see, despite that Trump thinks America is just “too clean” to ever be affected by climate change, that is just simply not the case. When we are all floating down the goddamn street along with Trump’s stupid ass, I guess we will finally realize that despite that great “American exceptionalism” we’ve been told that we possess, climate change will affect us in a big ass way and no amount of paper towels is going to clean up the mess as that is what Donald Trump threw at the people of Puerto Rico.

Donald Trump has already insulted Haiti and African countries by calling them, “shitholes” and now he has insulted every country on the planet by stating that “they are all dirty” and, apparently, ripe for climate change.  How anyone can take this fool seriously is a complete and utter mystery to me. And let us not forget the recent wildfires that have plagued many cities in California that sent thousands fleeing for their very lives. Never before seen anomalies have occurred and Trump just thinks that Californians need to take “rakes and rake the fires on outta there.” Listen to this nitwit and you’re a dead person.

 

 

Many people died while trying to escape these fires. Many were elderly and infirm and some had no cars and even those who had cars, died sitting in traffic.

 

Even inmate firefighters lost their lives fighting these fires. Some celebrities like Kim Kardashian hired their own ‘personal’ firefighters to save their homes. But how many of us can do that?

If climate change is not taken seriously, there is going to be massive loss of life. And I don’t care how much hate you have in your so-called ‘heart’ for those not of your complexion, fires don’t discriminate. Ask the people of Paradise, CA.

And so, I’ll finish this with pictures of the flooding that has occurred all across America that proves America is not so clean that America can’t be fucked up by climate change. Another fact, hurricanes don’t discriminate either. I would think on that if I were you.

 

 

jjjjj

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“WHY?”

I am like a star that refuses to shine,
or you could liken me to a plant
that just won’t grow,
worn out from endless battles
fought over my skin.
  Is there no final curtain call
on a show that will never end?
These are my burdens of despair,
drooping my shoulders
and graying my hair.
Cops still shooting us down,
drugs plaguing what’s left
of hoods yet to be gentrified.
Siren-filled nights,
as gunfire brings home,
a message of cruelty,
inhumanity and torn apart lives.
I look for answers,
but all I have is one question,
“WHY?”

Sometimes, I am so filled with despair over the suffering that is relentless, that it suffocates me. To have a heart that hurts so much to the point that it makes me want to just scream. Why are we devolving into debased creatures who can kill each other without even blinking? And it begs the question for those who believe in evolution, “Did we ever really ‘evolve’?” When I look around, I can honestly say, “No, we did not!” For surely, what we see is irrefutable proof that we certainly did not! And if anyone should be so disturbed as to believe that these were ‘mercy killings’…..just don’t even go there.

The blog that preceded this one is partly responsible for this post and then, add this into the equation and my heart is heavy with despair!

Homeless men are being gunned down on the street in Las Vegas

The video is chilling. James Edgar Lewis is sleeping under a Las Vegas freeway when a dark-colored SUV passes by. Seconds later, a man wearing a dark top emerges from the vehicle and shoots Lewis twice in the head before fleeing.

There is no struggle, no fight. Lewis never even appears to wake up.

“It’s basically an execution,” said Lt. Dan McGrath of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

This is the second such killing in the Las Vegas area.

On January 29, Brian Clegg was shot and killed, also while sleeping, in front of a business on a busy street.

Two lost souls sleeping on the streets, with as many horrors and problems that entails and then,  finally, from sheer exhaustion, more than likely, finding some relief in sleep, only to be shot dead.

I look for answers,
but all I have is one question,
“WHY?”

Death!

Death, is not a sweet kiss,
nor is it a deep, gentle sigh.
Death, is a struggle for life,
but we lose… and so we die.

I cannot recall how many times I have heard, “He was in his death throes.” And they have been defined as “sudden violent movements that people sometimes make when they are dying.”

The will to live is so strong, but death will have the ‘final’ say.

Break Free!

break the chains

For something in me was just never satisfied.
I would sit on the porch and stare at the mountains,
convinced that there was something, something calling to me,
beseeching me to “Come, come and drink from overflowing fountains!”

There is another world out there beyond the tall green mountain trees.
No telling what destiny will find for you to do if only you will wander,
wander away from the safety of boredom and the mundane,
and fling yourself into timelessness that only youth can squander.

And so I fled, I fled from the stagnation and strangulation of my nine to five;
and I lived, I lived as only the truly free can live, free from the bonds of society,
free to make my own rules and for this I was punished, held accountable.
 For those who wield the whip will never let the slave break free from his chains of slavery!

Each day, we are reminded in many different ways that life is just too short. We hear of a loved one who is seriously ill. We hear of horrors occurring daily to others in our neighborhoods and around the world and yet, each day, we go to the daily grind so that we can afford to go ‘home’ and what….’live’? Ask yourself this question, “What does it mean to ‘live’? I don’t mean to suck in air and release it. Are you doing what you truly love or are you doing what you NEED to do just to survive? Are you just going to work so that you can keep up the payments on that house and car and maybe, at the end of the week, you can sit down and have a beer and consider yourself lucky? Is this all you want out  of, dare I say, ‘life’? Is this all there is to ‘life’? Working to make someone more money while you give that same person the money that you ‘earn’ so that you can keep a roof over your head and sit in hours of traffic and think and dream about what it would be like if you could do just what the hell you want? We are all stifled and oppressed by what we have allowed. We have allowed others to tell us how to ‘live’ and if our doctor ever gives us the ‘bad’ news that it’s almost over for us, the only reason we kick up a fuss is because it is expected of us and because we fear the unknown.

Life is to be lived, not merely gotten through. Think about it. Are you living life or are you just waiting until your number is up? And when it is, will you smile and say, “At least I lived,” or will you say, “Damn, in a few more years, I promised myself that I was going to live!” Think about it. Live your life, don’t just go through the motions!

Man Is The Worst Landlord!

earth-1

No more thoughts run through my head
of killing fields and of the dead.
I have become immune to the suffering
of all the addicts who aren’t recovering.
I immerse myself in fun and games
as I ignore the world as it goes up in flames.
For why should I put forth an effort
when I’d rather traverse a hot and arid desert
than think of man as he withers and dies
from all his atrocities, wars and lies?
No plague could be too severe;
no earthquake would I fear.
For man is the worst landlord.
And upon his death, this world could be restored.

We all know that ‘man’ is the worst landlord for this planet. For what has man done but his damn best to destroy it?Would that man could destroy himself without destroying what was once a paradise that could have sustained us all. Now, we have greed, hatred, intolerance, endless, senseless wars and fake ass assertions that we are ‘good’ and seek only peace and prosperity for all when nothing could be further from the truth. We shoot each other every single day and if we are not shooting and killing each other in our own neighborhoods, we are suiting up to shoot and kill people in their neighborhoods across the sea and absconding with everything that’s not nailed down. We can’t even contain our arrogance and thirst for blood on a local level; we must spread our evil, far and wide.

I just read that there is an earthquake advisory for Southern California and that the East Coast is under a massive storm watch thanks to Hurricane Matthew and as far as I am concerned, the two should just meet up and put paid to this shithole; once and for all. Wiping AmeriKKKa off the map would go a long way towards restoring this planet to some semblance of what it was before ‘mankind’ decided that bombs and missiles and drones and bullets and wars led to peace, prosperity and freedom. And don’t even bother throwing a fit about all the people that would die if such a calamity struck this shithole because since when have we gave a damn about all the havoc that we have wreaked not only here in AmeriKKKa, but worldwide? Fuck this shithole!

Hold Up! Wait A Damn Minute! Why So Many Weapons, Feds?

warzone in AmeriKKKa

 

Take a look at this, AmeriKKKan citizens!

Report: FDA, Smithsonian, other fed groups gathering war arsenals

A new report by American Transparency, a nonpartisan watchdog that compiles data on public expenditures, indicates the militarization of ordinary American life goes well beyond law enforcement and regular citizens.

67 federal agencies during the fiscal years 2006 to 2014 amassed stockpiles of guns, ammunition and military-style equipment to the tune of $1.48 billion.

The Department of Veterans Affairs, which spent $11.7 million on military equipment.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Small Business Administration (SBA), Smithsonian Institution, Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, United States Mint, Department of Education, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and many other agencies purchased guns, ammo, and military-style equipment.”

Overall, American Transparency estimates there are more than 200,000 non-military federal officers and security personnel not attached to the Pentagon, which is a force larger than the Marine Corps, with its 180,000 personnel.

“The recent growth of the federal arsenal begs the questions: Just who are the feds planning to battle?” the author of the report, Adam Andrzejewski, wrote for Forbes.

Yeah, it begs the question, “Just who are the feds planning to battle?”

Uh, if I had to guess, I would guess, US! We the PEOPLE of these fucked up states of AmeriKKKa!

False flag attack after false flag attack has been staged and/or engineered for the benefit of continuing to bring to light the need for AmeriKKKans to be disarmed while the feds continue to amass an arsenal that will be used on the disarmed Amerikkkans.

At first, I was wailing and moaning over all the recent shootings in the news and over the not so recent shootings, but I am done with all that shit after having read this report. The feds are, as usual, up to no good and are attempting to disarm Amerikkkans by constantly pointing out how violent and gun happy we are while the government had no problem arming the nations KKKops with military equipment from overseas warzones. And now, to find out that the Food and Drug Administration, the Small Business Administration, the Smithsonian Institution, the Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, United States Mint, Department of Education, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, National Institute of Standards and Technology and many other agencies are racking up “$313,958 on paintball equipment, along with $14.7 million on Tasers, $1.6 million on unmanned aircraft, $8.2 million on buckshot, $7.44 million on projectiles, and $4 million on grenades/launchers,” is extremely telling of how hypocritical the shits in congress are when pretending to stage sit-ins over assault weapons bans while knowing all the while that every federal agency from the Institute for the Relief of Beehive Control to the Buffalo Institute on Bison Safety has amassed a shitload of goddamn paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers for the express purpose of controlling and killing our ass when the shit hits the fan in a big ass way!

No more will I shout up and down and rail against the need for assault weapons. I will not call for a ban on assault weapons when the Food and Drug Administration has the ability to not only kill my ass through big pharma and corporate AmeriKKKa by way of food recalls, but at the same time, they are planning to send a grenade up my ass just in case big pharma and my goddamn bad food don’t cut my ass down! We are about to get fucked up!! And if that is not crystal clear to you, I don’t know what it will take to make it so!

For one thing, why is The Department of Veterans Affairs spending so much on paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers to the tune of $11.7 million when veterans are being denied necessary and what could have been lifesaving medical procedures if the wait time had not been so long? The Veterans Administration could have put that $11.7 million to good goddamn use in taking care of those who are supposedly held in such high esteem by the president, congress and the AmeriKKKan people since they are always going on and on about how they ‘thank those who have put their lives on the line’ for this shithole! So, now we know where millions of dollars went that did not go to help veterans who have died thanks in part to receiving no medical care from the VA. It is more important to amass an arsenal to be used against those veterans since the feds have deemed every AmeriKKKan citizen to be a threat to this shithole, even against those who have ‘defended’ it.

So, veterans, still glad you gave up your arms and legs and your mind for a shithole that continues to value weapons over your worthless life?

Why does the Bureau of Engraving and Printing need paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers? Does printing money out of thin air need paintball equipment? I don’t fucking think so! Can a Taser print money out of thin air? Fuck no! Can they use unmanned aircraft to print money? Again, hell no! How about buckshot? Buckshot? What the fuck do those fuckers need with buckshot? To fill your ass with when even the smoke and mirrors of printing fake ass money no longer is able to hold off the masses of starving, homeless people, that’s why and then grenades/launchers will be used to make sure that there are no people to complain and whine about the fact that this shithole finally sank and that there are no lifeboats or jackets.

What is the Social Security Administration preparing for? It is preparing for gramma’s justified rage when her Social Security check is not deposited into her bank account, that’s what it is preparing for! As has been noted in every other industrialized nation, seniors are in the majority and the money is just not there to sustain the demand since world leaders have stolen, pillaged and plundered the money of their citizens. There is no money for the continuation of pension payments. Just ask the pensioners in Detroit, MI, Stockton, CA and in many other AmeriKKKan cities. And overseas, remember the austerity in Greece is so bad that many pensioners are committing suicide and the citizens of France are even now, protesting in a big ass way. And in Venezuela, food shortages are causing some to hunt dogs, cats and pigeons for food. Shut up AmeriKKKans because Fido is now fair game when ‘humans’ are hungry. Hell! Fido will more than likely look good to you in a year or so. You may have even less time than that to get used to the idea of Fido on your dinner plate! You’ll wish Harambe had been shot and placed on your breakfast bar instead!

Why does the United States Mint need paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers? What does it do? Yeah, figure it out and then get a clue! And newsfuckingflash, if there is no gold in Fort Knox, where’d it get to?

What the fuck does the Smithsonian Institute need all that shit for? Oh, that’s right! It’s in Washington, D.C. and that is where folks are going to go when they finally realize just how fucked they are! But they got the shit to handle you motherfuckers and in a most lethal way!

So, yeah! Let ’em take your guns, those goddamn hypocrites because once they ‘unarm’ AmeriKKKa’s citizens, it is game over! The writing is all over the wall. Your ass is grass! This ban on weapons bullshit is just that, bullshit! The reality is that an unarmed AmeriKKKa is an easily controlled AmeriKKKa and hell! The KKKops and the City Council gestapo pigs cannot even control the violence that is going down, unchecked in Chicago, daily. Hell! I even read that the Black folks are getting the hell out of Chicago. And you know it’s bad when Black folks are leaving because we are supposed to be used to inner city violence.

Shit is hitting the fan, left and right in major cities all across this shithole and it is only going to get worse and the feds are preparing for the shit to get worse. Where some of you live right now, it’s not happening, but it soon will because like the Black Plague, this shit is contagious and it will leave no one, unaffected.

And so, continue to expect to see more mass shootings because they are necessary to prep this country for the disarming of Amerikkka! The shit is getting too deep to scoop and pretty soon, we’ll all be drowning in shit!

Who are the terrorists? I’ll give you a hint! It’s not ISIS or ISIL or even the Taliban! It’s your own goddamn piece of shit government! ISIS is not amassing billions in paintball equipment, projectiles, unmanned aircraft, buckshot and grenades/launchers to fuck your ass up, the U.S. government is and who is the U.S. government? Why, they are you and me. So that means that those in the U.S. who are working for the feds know exactly what’s up and they aim to launch a missile up your ass when told to do so and make no mistake, they will. And your guns will be no match for unmanned aircraft, projectiles and grenades/launchers. Because you see, we are too busy hating and killing one another over skin tone while the feds are an equal opportunity killer. While we are fighting over the gay rights issue which is a non issue, the feds are preparing to fuck us all up. We are being pointed in a certain direction to get the different groups fighting against each other while the feds are busily making their preparations for what they have put into play. Continue to ignore what is right in front of you and it won’t matter if you’re Black, white, gay or straight, Christian or Muslim; a grenade launcher won’t care about that and neither will any other projectile type missile. You’d better fucking get a clue and I wouldn’t waste any time over getting a clue! This shit ain’t fucking playing with US!

“…And Tomorrow, There’ll Be Another Murder….”

there will be another murder

I am so tired, I almost forget to breathe!
And when it is time to join the dead
will it be because we chose guns
over love instead?

When have you ever picked up a kiss
and killed someone with it?
Did it hurt them when you hugged them?
Or to you, am I just talking shit?

How many times have kind words
planted someone in the ground?
And can you remember the last time
you laughed? Can you remember the sound?

We live like strangers with heads bent low
over smartphones and IPods, just texting
and hashtagging and fussing and fighting!
It’s all just so depressing!

But we display our solidarity
with the murdered on Facebook.
But we don’t even know who our neighbor is.
How do they look?

Have you ever stopped and asked
if they needed something….ANYTHING?
Or do you just assume that they are just like you,
striking out at the people in the world with a scorpion’s sting?
Stuck in their own little world, incapable
of feeling, immune to the suffering and the pain
until the media alerts you to another death;
another life lost, just as these words are….in vain.

Now you can turn away, the cameras have stopped rolling.
The blood has been cleaned up, the crime tape, torn.
And tomorrow, there’ll be another murder;
another senseless waste of human life….to mourn.

Transgender Rights, But No Rights for Black People

American hypocrisy

 

 

 

 

As Margaret Kimberley of Black Agenda Report so succinctly states:

“If you are Black in America, “driving, walking, riding a bicycle, being in a public space at the wrong moment, or even calling the police for assistance” can get you killed. President Obama doesn’t care about that, yet he puts the full force of the federal government behind transgender bathroom rights. “Obama loves to wade in on the side of a small segment of white liberal concern instead of helping the people who love them the most.”

“There is nothing new about people being transgender or using the restrooms they choose. They have been doing so for years. In contrast, black people risk death constantly just because they exist in this society. Driving, walking, riding a bicycle, being in a public space at the wrong moment, or even calling the police for assistance can get them killed. Yet Obama’s FBI doesn’t even maintain a record of killings committed by the police.”

Margaret Kimberley could not be more right!

And as I have been stating over and over again, this president has shown nothing but contempt for Black people in America and yet millions willfully remain ignorant to that contempt and disdain that he displays for them.

I recently tackled the subject of this transgender bathroom mess and fell out with a fellow blogger over it and rightly so as once again, the plight of Black people in this shithole gets equated with some transgender issue that is in reality, a non-issue. Real issues like police brutality against Black people, a school-to-prison pipeline, gentrification, mass unemployment and wage stagnation, voting rights, homelessness, mass incarceration and unmitigated poverty remain back burner issues that will never see the light of day for a ‘fix’ by the Feds. And continued ignorance will be spouted out about how Black people should just shut up already and be thankful that we are no longer seeing ‘Colored Only’ signs and be glad that transgender rights are being highlighted and that we must accept this as a ‘win’ for our corner. Never that! Not on my watch!

When I posted “I Am SO Fucking Fed Up With This Transgender Bathroom Shit!” I never thought that one of my readers would post such a disrespectful comment, but ‘humans’ never cease to amaze me with their thoughtlessness, ignorance, racism and obnoxiousness.

Without further ado, here is the comment in question.

Wow, Tubularsock isn’t much of a fan of intolerance. It wasn’t that many years ago that “Negroes” had their OWN public bathrooms and their very own drinking fountains. And all they did was bitch and complain that these facilities were separate.
They even had “Colored Only” signs. Another sign of a privileged class, Tubularsock guesses.
And all Tubularsock heard from “White” people when he attempted to explain those issues was “just get over it”!
And then the Federal Government made an issue of this intolerance and things started to change.
And all Tubularsock heard from “White” people was why isn’t the Federal Government doing more about important issues. And “. . . just why can’t THOSE “Negroes” just be happy for what they’ve got!”

Years ago a nurse friend of Tubularsock explained that “more babies than you’d think”, she said, are born hermaphrodite and at the time of birth many times the doctor will arbitrarily decide (often without even consulting the parents) which sex that child will be assigned.

Today a hermaphrodite is called an “intersex” birth and 1 in ever 2000 births are “intersex” births.

Standard medical treatment has been to look at the genitals, make an arbitrary decision about the gender and then correct it surgically because they are born with both sets!

But now, many are challenging the ethical basis of surgery, knowing that gender identity is complex, and doctors can sometimes get it wrong, not knowing how a child will feel about their gender assignment when they grow up.

The bottom line is not “just get over it” any more than to tell a black child to “just get over it” because you don’t look like Disney’s Blond Headed Cinderella!

Intolerance is NOT what is needed, knowledge and understanding will bring us together and what this world needs more than anything is LOVE!

And here was MY response of which I am SO fucking proud!

“Tubularsock isn’t much of a fan of intolerance. It wasn’t that many years ago that “Negroes” had their OWN public bathrooms and their very own drinking fountains. And all they did was bitch and complain that these facilities were separate.”

Fuck THAT shit! You can consider me to be an ‘intolerant’ homophobe until the cows come home, go back out and come home AGAIN! I don’t fucking care! I am speaking of MY opinion and only MY opinion and once again, since we have been down this road before, if you take exception to what you see in here, you are free to move the hell along and never come this way again! Do you understand this???!!! I don’t give a goddamn for your fucked up opinion on this issue, nor did I seek it! If motherfuckers want to claim that their sex is not what they want it to be, all well and good. But I am sick to pieces of MY tax dollars going to fund erroneous lawsuits to enable some man who can’t fucking figure out what he wants to be from one day to the next, a new bathroom sign just for his confused ass.

The signs for ‘Colored Only’ were not over some ‘gender’ issue and whether or not we were born with male and female body parts. What we have been subjected to in this shithole from the time our ancestors were dragged over here are far more horrific than is the case with a motherfucker born with male and female body parts, “1 in every 2,000 births.” Every single African that was dragged to this shithole to become a slave, was put through an indescribable hell. There was no “1 in every 2,000” Africans had to go through this. Every single goddamn one of them did and their ancestors to this day are following suit. So don’t you sit on your pink ass and compare what happened to our ancestors and what is happening to us to some “1 in every 2,000 births” of some motherfuckers that are born with both male and female body parts and in fact, I don’t even think that is where the problem lies and you don’t either. The problem lies in the fact that it has now become à la mode to claim that a motherfucker was ‘assigned’ a gender that he/she feels is not theirs. No one has lashed their back, shackled, enslaved, tortured or brutalized them for hundreds of years over their female and male body parts and you know this!

So, don’t you dare come all up in here with your “nurse said this” and “nurse said that” about some goddamn shits that may or may not have been born with both male and female body parts because I can damn well believe that this is not at the heart of what we are seeing today!

You will not come up in here and downplay the ‘Colored only’ signs that my ancestors had to deal with and this was AFTER the fact of slavery! No one is enslaving motherfuckers who were born with both male and female body parts! No one is going around burning crosses in the yards of motherfuckers born with both male and female body parts. No Ku Klux Klan was formed for the sole purpose of intimidating, lynching and otherwise fucking up those who were born with both male and female body parts!

Don’t you goddamn EVER come back in here and I fucking mean that and I fucking swear that if I see one more goddamn comment from you, it will be deleted and you can rest assured that not another one will appear here, EVER!

If you want to post about how ‘tolerant’ your ass is, then use YOUR goddamn blog for that purpose, but in here, I am all about Blackness! And if you can’t understand that, too goddamn bad! Get ta steppin’, you pink assed motherfucker!!!!

Now then, I wonder what it is that gives Caucasians the right to think they can just overstep the bounds of propriety and just come out and say whatever they damn well please? Oh, that’s right! It’s called ‘white privilege’. Well in here, check your ‘white privilege’ at the goddamn door or I will check it for you and relish doing so! As you can see from the above comment. I have told you time and time again, that I don’t care if I write to my goddamn self, I will not have this shit in my face from Caucasians who have no right to speak on what they absolutely know nothing about.

You have no firsthand knowledge of what it means to be a Black person in AmeriKKKa and for you to come up in here and speak on this as though you are some sort of authority tells me all I need to know about your racist ass! It tells me more than I want to know which is why when you do so, you will get ta steppin’! I don’t give a good goddamn for followers. A damn war is being waged against us and in the midst of battle, the last thing I need to see is a comment of that sort from the likes of you! Shits like you are the reason why I am in the midst of battle. And make no mistake, your professions of “I am not a racist!” don’t cut no ice with me because shits like you sit up and condone what other racists say and do because if you didn’t, maybe so many ‘openly’ racist motherfuckers would no longer consider it to be a la mode to continue to parade down the goddamn street in white sheets. Maybe, it would no longer be business as usual in this shithole of denying Black people, access to good paying jobs, decent health care, a decent education, drinkable water and flourishing neighborhoods. But all we hear about is how bad Detroit and New Orleans and Chicago and Baltimore are doing. Like you don’t know why! But you’re ‘all good’ because you pronounced to all and sundry that “I am not a racist!” Like hell, you’re not! You are the epitome of racism and to suggest otherwise would be a goddamn lie! It is eating you from the inside out and you couldn’t die from it soon enough to suit me!

And yet, you want to sit somewhere on your pink asses and preach to us about LOVE?! Are you fucking serious? Since when have you gone to Ku Klux Klan Central and preached to them about LOVE? Since when did you go to the Aryan Brotherhood and preach to them about love? You know just what the fuck you would get for your worthless ass efforts. But you have no problem coming at me with that bullshit as though you are doing me a favor by telling me about LOVE! Something of which you know absolutely nothing about because if you did, you’d be preaching it to your damn self. But you don’t! Because your damn worthless ass ain’t fucking human. You are no different from the motherfucker that dons a sheet. You are one and the same! I am fighting against your ass the same as I am theirs. You are both two peas in a pod! And you mean, you didn’t have a clue as to what would happen if you spouted your racist ass bullshit to me? Did you fucking think that I was the one to put up with it? Really? Yeah! Bring some more filthy racist ass shit up in here and see just what the fuck you get for your efforts. If you don’t slither the fuck up out of here on your own, I’ll bounce your candy ass on up outta here. Count on it!

Trophy World!

save cecil the lion

They look upon me as though I’m game
like ‘Cecil’ in his kingdom.
They shoot me just for sport;
these men so short on wisdom.

This hunter’s paradise
is hell on earth for me.
And the white man with his gun,
to kill would pay a fee.

Can you see the correlation
between Cecil and my ass?
To the white man, we are animals;
we are in the same class.

Hunting season never closes
for the Black man in this land.
Where is the petition to save me
from death at the white man’s hand?

How can you be so blind
to the trophies in the morgue
of all the Negroes killed
by killer cops gone rogue?

We must save the lion.
 So pass the petition, please.
Send it to my mother,
her heartbreak, it will ease.

You see, her son,  was killed
by hunters shooting game.
They shot him just for sport
and never knew his name.

So, pass the petition, please!
Let’s save a lion or two.
But when it comes to me,
a petition just won’t do.

US, EU: Save Africa’s lions!To US and EU authorities:

As concerned citizens deeply disturbed by the tragic killing of Cecil the lion, we urge you to act swiftly to stop the decline in lion populations across Africa. We call on you to ensure they are classified as an endangered species and ban the import of any hunting trophies that threaten the survival of these majestic animals.

And now, I have a petition!

US, EU: Save Negro lives in America!

As a concerned citizen deeply disturbed by the tragic killings of Negro people in America, I urge you to act swiftly to stop the decline in the Negro population across America. I call on you to ensure they are classified as an endangered species and ban the hunting and killing of Negroes by Caucasians as this threatens the survival of these majestic human beings! I would sincerely appreciate it if you would add the Negro to the endangered species list and act appropriately to put a halt to open hunting season on the Negro population.

signed, Shelby I. Courtland

Anybody else want to sign THIS particular petition? Step right up!

* crickets chirping*

I am getting real tired of this hypocritical shit! Caucasian man with money jets off to Africa, pays a hefty fee, kills ‘Cecil, the lion’ and all hell breaks loose.(Can anyone say, “White privilege?”) “Put that Caucasian motherfucker down and use his own gun to do it!” is basically the cry but when the Caucasian motherfucker hunts the Negro down in America, day in and day out, shoots him/her like they are hunted game, filling up morgues all across America with dead Negro bodies, where are the petitions calling for that shit to cease and desist? You don’t fucking think that the Negro in America is an endangered species? You don’t read the goddamn news? You don’t notice all of the YouTube videos depicting killing chokeholds, Black children getting gunned down in parks, Black women getting mysteriously murdered inside jail cells over a minor traffic infraction? You don’t see any of that, do you? But you do see innocent ‘Cecil, the lion’ don’t you? Because of course ‘Cecil, the lion’ was innocent and all of those hunted down and murdered Negro bodies were somehow deserving of their fate, weren’t they? Yeah! Protect the lions, fuck the Negro! You goddamn pretentious, hypocritical assholes make me want to puke and spit over your goddamn selective ass outrage! Fuck you and fuck your goddamn lame ass petitions!

A Slave Woman’s Lament

slave woman3

I’ve been down so many lonely roads
and I’ve scuffed so many shoes.
I’ve sat on old tree stumps
and I’ve quietly hummed the blues.

I’m just a tired, old woman now
with the wisdom learned from living.
And if you ask for my advice,
take from me what I’ll be giving.

There’s no secret to a long life;
 no magic formula to keep you going.
It’s not about how hard you work.
Just do your best to keep love growing.

I could tell you that it’s easy,
that it’s all a piece of cake.
But you need someone to love
and when he’s gone, it leaves an ache.

You feel it down and you feel it deep.
It hurts to even think.
And when you try and keep it in,
you just might turn to the devil’s drink.

My man, he done left my side
and I want to be with him.
And so I walk these lonely roads,
I wait for the light of day to grow dim.

My eyes have turned so yellow.
No more suffering will they see.
I’m now down to skin and bone.
Soon, no more worries will bother me.

There he is, I can see him.
He’s waving for me to come.
I’ve reached my final resting place.
We’re where the slavers stole us from.

Together, we walk hand in hand
towards the blazing sun.
We cross the burning plains of home.
Our new journey has begun.
