Opinion: Have You Had Just About Enough of All This Blatant White Privilege — Kreb Talk

From white people verbally and physically assaulting cops and living to talk about it, to rich white people getting busted cheating to get their kids into college, to school districts around the country “whitewashing” history and history books, to the mainstream media painting violent white criminals as angels, have you had just about enough of […]

via Opinion: Have You Had Just About Enough of All This Blatant White Privilege — Kreb Talk

Yes, you are seeing a growing number of white millennial women daytime television co-hosts whose only credential is their white privilege of being born to high-level political fathers. Please see Jenna Bush, Meghan McCain, and Abby Huntsman (I’m sure there are others). No, don’t adjust your television set; yes, you are witnessing white men committing all types of crimes in broad daylight and totally getting away with the crimes or getting a slap on the wrist. The chairs once reserved for Black analysts and commentators on CNN and MSNBC during the Obama campaigns and presidency, has grown almost completely white in less than three years. They couldn’t wait to get those blackies out there. Don’t adjust your television set; yes, white liberal/progressive television networks, channels, programs, personalities, etc. are pretending that Black voters don’t matter and don’t absolutely own the Democratic party. I’m starting to believe that white liberals/progressives rather lose to conservatives than give Black Democrats their due respect. In fact, in part because of their own internal bickering and naivety, we have the current douche bag in the white house. So, until they undo that screw up with impeachment or a successful election, hold all these so-called liberal/progressive white people suspect by paying no attention to their words, little attention to their actions, and all attention to their patterns and you might discover that most of them enjoy and embrace their white privilege more than they care about your Black ass or doing what’s right for the nation.

 

I could not agree more if I tried! I am so glad to see this from you because it needed saying because it is so damn true, it ain’t even funny!

There is just about nothing worse than a so-called white liberal/progressive because they believe that they have transcended to some higher plane and so cannot get called out on their ‘white privilege’ shit! They can and I will call them out on it because their shit does indeed, stink! They are no better than the unapologetic racists who have no problem prancing down the goddamn streets in hoods and sheets sporting Confederate flags and showing off their guns. They are one and the same. We have never had any friends among the whites because they are all hellbent on continuing to make sure that their white privilege exists and the only way they can do that is to continue to make sure that our lives are deemed, meaningless and downplay the vile, vicious shit they do while constantly portraying us as worse than monsters when there cannot be a more monstrous creature slithering among us than the whites.

And we as descendants of slaves need to get up off the “sit back and believe we have friends” bullshit couch and act like we fucking know. Our list of enemies is long and it will never be shortened and at the very top of that list is the white male and female parasite and anything they hatch. Their ‘white privilege’ depends upon us stuck in slavery and that means that every statistic that tells the story of how descendants of the original slaves are doing in this shithole is fucked up! It is ALL done by design and they are not going to ‘give up’ their coveted ‘white privilege. It has stood them well and so they’ll not give that shit up without a fight, but at the same time, we don’t have to embrace the foul ass shit they stand for and do to us. Call their shit out every single chance you get! Don’t let up on those fuckers even for a nanosecond. I don’t and I could care less about what they think. We don’t fucking like the shit we are made to suffer because of them, but that don’t matter to them because they benefit from our suffering. They benefit in keeping the status quo of white privilege alive and well. And as long as they get to reap the benefits from that, we will continue to get our ass kicked.

Absolutely love it and make no bones about it when their shit gets fried, toasted, oven roasted, flooded, covered in igneous rock and shook to pieces. I refuse to play the hypocrite and pretend that I am not filled with absolute glee when I see those parasites moaning and wailing over some busted up house that’s half way down the goddamn street with only the toilet still standing. They can sit on that and take a shit while moaning and wailing over the loss of their precious possessions because that is the very substance of their parasitic life. They are the very ones who have caused these catastrophic storms and climate change to occur and yet they act like the shit should just bypass them and head on over to the ‘hood’. Well, it’s not just heading on over to the ‘hood’, it’s fucking their shit up six ways to Sunday and I am loving it! Your white privilege cannot stop Mother Nature in her tracks. You cannot pay Mother Nature off with credit cards to stop fucking up your shit! You gentrify cities left and right and then expect to continue to reap the benefits of every goddamn thing that’s upscale, nice and some more shit, but you will continue to pay for the vicious shit you do. And I will continue to showcase your fucked up shit as it gets fucked up! Count on it!

Ho Hum! Another Mass Shooting By A White Man

stephen paddock

 

 

You know, this is becoming quite redundant and actually, I have not read one report, article or blog on this most recent mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas. I only read several headlines since you cannot miss them if you tried.

From what I gather, another upset ‘white’ man went on a killing spree and shot up a bunch of people at some country music venue. Imagine that! And I am quite sure the usual tired talking points were expounded upon on channel after channel with reporters attempting to look as somber as possible while inwardly, they were all but shaking with glee to have something to report on other than the recent destruction of Puerto Rico by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Puerto Rico, with your woes, step aside especially since Mr. Bankruptcy himself, President Donald Trump, has blamed the island nation for its woes claiming that, well…read it for yourself.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble..

Puerto Rico is “suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt?” Is he serious? The entire U.S. is “suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt” and this fool wants to concentrate on that when the people of Puerto Rico are dealing with no food, water, access to electricity, telephones; the whole nine yards. Donald Trump is ALL heart! And please note the sarcasm.

But as usual, I digress. I chalk it up to getting older.

Back to the ‘disgruntled white mass murderer’. Let me guess! He was ‘mentally ill’. His mommy didn’t change his diapers often enough when he was a baby. His daddy walked out on them just when he needed a father figure the most. He was bullied in school. He could never get the pretty girls. He was a loner. His dog died and he became bereft and drifted about. He had loads of money and did not know what to do with all of it and so he bought himself an armload of eye candy who took him for everything he was worth and so he decided to take his anger out on others. Am I getting hotter?

But I am sure the media is not calling this ‘white’ man, a terrorist or a thug. Oh! No way! Those designations are for Muslims and Blacks. This man just needed some meds and some counseling and he’d of never done this deed. I am also guessing that he’s dead and so no explanation is to be forthcoming from him and the news is ripe with speculation and innuendo. Every CNN reporter, MSNBC reporter, ABC, NBC, CBS and so forth and so on are going on and on about this poor man’s mental state at the time of this mass shooting. “Oh what terrible, horrible life this man must have led to lead him to do something of this nature!” We have got to do something about the lack of available slots for the mentally ill!” “We need more background checks…yep…background checks would have stopped this!” Sigh!

For the love of !!! Give me a damn break! No amount of background checks in the world would have stopped this mass shooting just as it will not stop the next and the next. There are so many guns in the hands of Americans that there is just no way to disarm the people of this country. The NRA will not stand for it. And there will be shouts that by disarming ‘mentally stable’, law-abiding Americans this will cause only criminals to have access to guns. We’ve heard it all before and we shall hear it again. But you know what? I’m not one bit upset by this most recent mass shooting because I am still reeling from the murder of Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Aiyana Mo’nay Stanley-Jones,  Sandra Bland, Walter Scott, John Crawford, Philando Castile, Freddie Gray, Keith  Childress, Bettie Jones, Kevin Matthews, Michael Noel, Leroy Browning, Roy Nelson, Miguel Espinal, Nathaniel Pickett, Tiara Thomas, Cornelius Brown, Jamar Clark, Richard Perkins, Michael Lee Marshall, Alonzo Smith, Anthony Ashford, Dominic Hutchinson, Lamontez Jones, Rayshaun Cole, Paterson Brown, Christopher Kimble, Junior Prosper, Keith McLeod, Wayne Wheeler, Lavante Biggs, India Kager, Tyree Crawford, James Carney III, Felix Kumi, Asshams Manley, Christian Taylor, Troy Robinson, Brian Day, Michael Sabbie, Billy Ray Davis, Samuel Dubose, Darrius Stewart, Albert Davis, Salvado Ellswood, George Mann, Jonathan Sanders, Freddie Blue, Victo Larosa III, Spencer McCain, Kevin Bajoie, Zamiel Crawford, Jermaine Benjamin, Kris Jackson, Kevin Higgenbotham, Ross Anthony, Richard Gregory Davis, Curtis Jordan, Markus Clark, Lorenzo Hayes, De’Angelo Stallworth, Dajuan Graham, Brandon Glenn, Reginald Moore, Nuwnah Laroche, Jason Champion, Bryan Overstreet, David Felix, Terry Lee Chatman, William Chapman, Samuel Harrell and the list is endless. These Black people were killed by KKKops and they were unarmed, some of them were mentally ill and posed no threat to anyone, some were killed by police who were engaged in high speed chases which had nothing to do with who they killed and not one KKKop that murdered any of the aforementioned has been charged with a crime but I am quite sure that ALL mainstream media reporters have now jumped on the KKKops aka ‘first responders bandwagon, praising them to the high heavens for rushing to the scene of this mass shooting. But what mainstream media reporter has given any attention to these people who were murdered? HA! That’ll be the day! This is mass murder. Oh indeed, it is! But you see, mass murder of Black people by racist KKKops is just business as usual. Nothing to see here. Move along.

But now that we’ve come to Mr. Misunderstood Mentally Ill Affluenza, well we’ve just got to make excuses for his heinous crime. It is not his fault. He is a victim of ‘white privilege’ and us Black folks had just best be glad that we don’t suffer the effects of this most serious of privileged afflictions. No, I will not be getting out the purple crepe and the black armbands, nor will I offer up any stupid, useless ‘prayers’ because so long as ‘whites’ continue to worship their guns even as they sit up in church with them strapped to their side, mass murder of ‘innocent’ people will continue and don’t they know it. You people are so deranged and depraved that you don’t even care that you’re probably next. You’ve got your gun strapped to your hip and you’re badass. No, you’re not! You’re stupid! And you’re a fool if you believe that that gun will protect you because you’ll be hit when you least expect it, just like the 59 who got whacked by a murdering, privileged ‘white’ terrorist. When have I ever tread lightly for your sake? It hasn’t happened and don’t hold your breath waiting for me to do so for if you do, you’ll be just as dead as those 59 country music concert goers in Las Vegas; Sin City. Go figure! And while you’re at it, figure out that you will die by that which you so love, your damn guns! Oh, and before I forget, I hear tell that you now want guns with silencers. I sincerely hope you get your wish, silenced!

Another Day, Another Blog Fight!

 

I just cannot let things go. And I know that I cannot go on a one woman ‘set the record straight’ crusade, but on the other hand, I just gotta call out mess when I see it. And so, without further ado here is another chapter in my never ending quest to awaken the brain dead.

I was reading a blog post titled, “Is The Media The Real Enemy of America?… Take a Closer Look…” and I took exception to some of what I read and I posted a comment. And as usual, things deteriorate after I comment. I wonder, why is that? I really don’t. I know why. That was rhetorical, of course. But before I digress any further, this is what I took exception to.

Reince Priebus, White House chief of staff, firmly suggested we take seriously Trump’s authoritarian statement of the media being the enemy of America. In actuality, these journalists who Trump so routinely lambasts, the result of his fantasy notion of a dark covert operation enacted to depose him as the reigning king, are in fact, not our enemies at all.

Seriously? “The media is not our enemy?” I almost broke down and wept over this little jewel. Since when has the media spouted anything other than recycled garbage? The media, as we know, is owned, lock, stock and barrel by a few corporate moguls who are quite determined that the American populace should remain clueless and unaware of what is really going on. We have been fed fake ass news for decades. It is only with the advent of the internet that we have been able to, thanks to alternative news sites, get some idea of what is actually going down. The ‘mainstream media’ has never been our friend and for once, Trump was right, the media is our enemy!

Below is the comment that I posted to the blog.

This entire post is absolute hypocrisy and an absurdity. The media is anything but fair and balanced. The media is owned by a handful of corporate moguls. There are no independent, unbiased newspapers, TV news shows and the like and I just love the last sentence:

“we must discern between what our country has always stood for since the day our forefathers set foot on our golden shores, as opposed to Trump’s vision of America”

You mean when some men and their women who were fed up with paying taxes in England embarked on a journey to find another land to lay claim to, kill off the majority of the original inhabitants and then go in search of free ‘slave’ labor to build up said stolen land? Is this what you meant by ‘our forefathers set foot on golden shores’? Because my forefathers were slaves and this shore was not so ‘golden’ to them since the ‘forefathers’ you speak of were themselves, slave-owning hypocrites who loudly spoke of ‘living as free men rather than die as slaves’ all the while brandishing a whip over the heads of their slaves. Talk about hypocrisy, this is the very definition.

I have never seen so many ‘white’ people up in arms over what epitomizes them in all my days. Trump is every single last one of you if you were to be honest. Look in the mirror, Trump is staring right back at you! And this is why when you look at pictures of the protests, hardly any ‘Black’ faces are in the crowds. We deal with all of you ‘Trumps’ on a daily basis and see no need to protest Trump. What would be the point? He is everywhere we turn and not just in the Oval Office.

———————————————————————————

Of course, all hell broke loose after that! And below is the response to my comment.

Since you have chosen to turn my blog into a racial issue, I feel it only fair to respond. I do have to ask first. Is this what you always do? Sounds like maybe. Contrary to your belief, I do not see Trump when I look in a mirror. I see the opposite or I would not be so adamant in my stance against virtually everything he stands for. It would appear to me, since you have lumped me under your single myopic category of “all white people”, perhaps you are the one who needs to spend some time in self-reflection. You’ve made your racial overtones quite obvious even though the intent of the article had nothing to do with racism. Yes, I fully understand there were slaves in early America, just as there were in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe, but to hear you explain yourself, every white person alive today is somehow responsible for these atrocious sins of the past. I agree the actions of our forefathers were inhumane in this respect and it makes me quite ill to think that any human, anywhere, possessed such a high level of immorality as to enslave another human, regardless their color. Did you realize that many of the Irish were also held as slaves? Some of them were my relatives so I guess I should lash out at people living centuries later as well. But I won’t though. I am astute enough to realize these people had nothing to do with that, and I am certain if I were to ask them, they would agree how horrible it was.

I prefer to think the world has moved forward since those days, but some people can’t seem to get past things that happened way before they were even born. Our forefathers were wrong. So was the rest of the world at that time. Despite the fact, they came to America to escape what they could no longer contend with in their countries of origin, and yes, because of the historical times they lived in, slavery was an unfortunate part of that. It took many years to right the wrong of slavery, and many “white people” died in the battles for their unconditional freedom. In fact, most of the soldiers who gave their lives for the abolishment of slavery were white.

I served in the military for 14 years and fought side by side with people of all colors. We had each other’s backs and we never questioned where we individually came from, what our religion was, or where our ancestors were born. None of that mattered. We were simply people, united together for the same causes. We had no vision of black versus white. Most veterans don’t, but I’m sure you never served so you probably don’t realize that.

As far as the media goes, as I have written about before, they all lean either left or right which is why it is so imperative to read more than one sources take on something before determining an educated appraisal of the truth. They all report about the same things so it shouldn’t be all that difficult for you to do.

Please. Next time you choose to respond to one of my blogs, how about staying on topic and not taking things where they were never intended to go. Trump does that.

And just so you know, I, or anyone else for that matter, cannot change the color of our shoreline.

Peace to you and yours. And I truly mean that.

————————————————————————————————————

And the blog author did not finish there. Another post was put up titled, “Racial Tension in Trump’s America. What Are You Going To Do About It?” and I got an honorable mention. I am feeling quite humbled. I am such an inspiration to many, it would seem. I just love it.

In a previous blog, I made reference to America’s golden shores as being the landing place of our forefathers, using a description I have heard repeated many times throughout my 65 years, not giving the phrase a second thought. However. America’s forefathers were not the focus of the blog, and it had not a thing to do with our shoreline. It was about the media. Who to believe. Who not to believe. It’s a question on all of our minds.

As has become increasingly the norm in this year of your higher power 2017, one reader chose to hang on the words “golden shores”, using this strictly literary phrase as ammunition for twisting the media related blog into a racial onslaught. Needless to say, I was caught way off guard.

I declare, I seem to catch people off guard all the time! I am SO bad!

This person stated how the golden shores were not so golden for slaves who arrived chained and shackled in the hulls of huge sailing vessels. How can anyone with half a heart disagree? I certainly can’t. Maybe Ben Carson can since he believes these “immigrant” slaves were so full of hopes and dreams they were about to burst. The person’s response did not stop there, as you will read in a direct quote below. All this being said, I can in no way assume responsibility for the sins of anyone’s past.

No, he cannot be responsible for the ‘sins of anyone’s past’ but he can be responsible for when the present is a reflection of the past and there really is no difference between the two. So, I shall just post my response to this.

————————————————————————————————–

Well, I guess I should thank you for the honorary mention but there has been racial tension in America long before Trump stepped foot inside the Oval Office and if anyone is not aware of this, then all they need do is to unbury their head from in the sand. Racist drug policies are responsible for why 2.3 million mostly Black men and women are cooling their heels in ‘for profit’ prisons.

When crack was first introduced into ‘Black communities’ decades ago, there was no hue and cry over this. It was decided that a ‘War on Drugs’ would be declared and those who were addicted would be locked up along with those who sold the drugs. Now, along comes heroin in rural ‘white’ America, and now, the addiction of white folks is a most horrible ‘medical’ epidemic. It is now time for the CDC to investigate and report its findings on what is killing ‘white’ folks all across America; especially in areas that normally are not perceived as problematic, unlike the inner cities. Heroin has been problematic for the city of Baltimore for decades and no hue and cry was raised over this because of who resides in Baltimore; namely Black people. But everyone gets their panties in a bunch when drugs start killing ‘whites’ and don’t lock them up, get them some help.

Everything in America IS about race and there is no escaping that fact, if your head’s not buried in the sand, that is. You cannot escape this. And I also noticed how you go on and on about your military service. I would never, ever thank anyone of any skin tone for their so-called ‘service to this country’ because what service would that be? Heading over to foreign lands to kill people who have personally done you no harm? Operating a drone from thousands of miles away from a target that’s been declared, a ‘bug’ and watching a ‘bug splat’ once that drone has struck its target and those surrounding it which has also included innocent women and children attending wedding parties in Yemen and Afghanistan?

And if anyone is unsure as to why America’s military is still in Afghanistan, then, please feel free to read any one of my many posts about the fact that poppy production has skyrocketed in Afghanistan since U.S. and NATO forces arrived and took over. Please feel free to read my post, “The War In Afghanistan Is Not Over!” and please, don’t stop there.

I suppose you have never heard the word ‘gentrification’ and so you don’t know what that means. Gentrification is when rich ‘white’ folks declare an inner city, that once housed mostly Black folks, to be the new ‘promised land’ for them and so they promptly increase rents by building high-end condos, thus making it impossible for those who used to reside there to continue. Washington, D.C. is no longer known as ‘Chocolate City’ for this very reason. The Black people who used to live in D.C. have had to either become homeless or flee to southern states and I do know that many of them did head south and right into even more deep-seated racism because I am from the south and so I know about this, first hand. The Black people who remain in D.C. are in homeless shelters because D.C. has always been their home and they cannot think of going anywhere else. Besides, what would be the point when gentrification is rearing its ugly head everywhere?

The Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Brotherhood and other skinhead groups did not just start up when Trump was elected. And who instigated the racial tensions that result from Klan marches through main streets in cities in America? If slavery and all it entailed is over and done with, then why was there a need for a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his non-violence stance of marching to gain Civil Rights for Black people? And who shot him? If whites were not so racist and racism was actually annihilated with the so-called ending of slavery, then there would have been no Jim Crow laws on the books. There would have been no ‘colored only’ signs and Selma-to-Montgomery marching, Black church bombings and I suppose Dylann Roof is just a figment of my imagination, but isn’t he the one who went inside a church and shot it up and killed nine Black churchgoers? I do believe this happened long before Donald Trump was residing in the White House. And Tamir Rice was gunned down two seconds after ‘white’ cops showed up as he was playing with a toy gun in a park and yet whites take their children to gun ranges and it has been reported that a white child shot the gun range instructor, but no one shot a white child holding a gun, did they? But I suppose you think that Tamir Rice would have been just fine if he had taken his toy pistol to a gun range. Yeah, I’d buy that.

So no, I’m not the one who is perpetuating racism, bigotry and prejudice. We all know who is but you don’t like what you see when you look in the mirror and that is not on me. You own this and you know it. I cannot deny you a loan because I don’t own a bank. I cannot deny you housing because I don’t own an apartment building. I cannot experiment on you because I am not a doctor. But all of these things happen to us because we, ourselves were owned and as we all know, the slaves were kept dumb on purpose and what has changed because even you must have heard of the school-to-prison pipeline whereas inner city children are being sent straight from the classroom to a jail cell because education in inner cities is sadly lacking and that is why private schools are all the rage among whites who can afford to send their children to those schools, Black people cannot because we are busily fighting against discrimination in the form of loans at banks called ‘predatory lending’ whereas Wells Fargo deliberately steered prime mortgage loan borrowers who were Black to subprime mortgage loans even though they qualified for prime mortgage loans and those who worked for Wells Fargo called the Black customers, ‘Mud people’ and called the bad loans they gave them, “Ghetto Loans.” Now, how is that on us? I could go on and on, but some people, like you, refuse to see what is right in front of you because when you do, you must then acknowledge your role in all of this because believe me, those who enslaved my ancestors, their progeny still have that same mindset today. You are one and the same. And I stand by that statement.

You titled this post, “Racial Tension in Trump’s America. What Are You Going To Do About It?” and so am I to believe that my comment on one of your previous posts is the reason for this? I am not that naïve.

—————————————————————————————————————————————–

Let me just add that I don’t go looking to get into arguments. I really don’t. And I am not at all trying to be confrontational. What I am tired of is the fact that when we look around us, we cannot help but see that many of our problems stem from the fact that the more things change, the more they stay the same. If ‘white’ people were in fact any different from those they are descended from, would this country be in the condition it is in today? Slavery did not go anywhere. Prison is the new slave pen and cops are the slave patrols because there are millions of Black people locked up behind bars and for what? Because they got high? Because they sold a dime bag of weed? Uh…no! It is because the ‘whites’ still maintain that Black people should toil for nothing. ‘Whites’ still maintain that Black people are not truly human. And why to this very day, do ‘whites’ have a problem with our identity? They cannot figure out if they should call us niggers, negroes, colored, African-Americans or Blacks. Why is that? How many labels or identifiers have the whites had in the past four hundred plus years? We are still dealing with labels and identifiers but we are to believe that we are being treated equally because the ‘whites of today are so different from their ancestors?

Why is that if we have come so far since the first slave ships arrived on the shores of this stolen land? If today’s ‘whites’ are so different from their ancestors, then why has the Klan not disbanded? Why are we still watching Klan members march down main streets in ‘post-slavery/racial’ America? Why is it that every day some ‘white’ cop is beating the shit out of an unarmed Black man, woman and child? Why is it that every single time the U.S. Department of Justice gets off its ass long enough to investigate police departments all across America, the U.S. Department of Justice comes back with a ‘scathing’ report that states what we all know; that the police department investigated was rife with legitmate police brutality complaints, police misconduct, racial profiling and the list is endless and these ‘crimes’ are overwhelmingly against descendants of slaves? Which brings me to another point, if you want to call me something, then call me what I am, a descendant of slaves because that is exactly what I am. But you won’t do that because it reminds you of how I came to be here and you want me to believe that my ancestors immigrated here alongside yours. You’re even trying to re-write history books to include this. Just ask Mc-Graw Hill textbook publishers.

So, yeah…let’s keep spreading the lies that slavery is over and racism exists only because I want to blame all ‘white’ people today for what their ancestors put into play hundreds of years ago. No, I am blaming you for continuing to perpetuate what your ancestors put into play because if you weren’t still doing it, then why is there a school-to-prison pipeline? Why are those cops who are your brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, mothers and fathers killing mine? Why is there gentrification? Why was crack just fine when it was introduced into Black neighborhoods and incarceration was touted as the cure but now that ‘whites’ are overdosing and dying of heroin, that is a medical condition that needs some understanding and rehab? Why are the slave patrols, now known as cops, not found guilty of murder when they kill innocent Black men, women and children? Why are millions of Black men and women sitting in ‘for-profit’ prisons? Why is TV ‘whitewashed’ just as (HIS)tory is? Why are Black people the continued subjects of medical experimentation? Just ask Johns Hopkins Hospital why they are being sued for a lead paint study whereas they only used Black inner city children and this occurred recently? And why did they conduct experiments on Henrietta Lacks’ cancer cells without her knowledge? Why? Because she was a Black woman, but in the eyes of today’s ‘whites’, she was still not human and her relatives are also suing the hell out of Johns Hopkins Hospital. So, don’t give me any bullshit about my throwing you lot in with each other because if you did not belong there, we would not be in the condition we are in today, still enslaved!

And one final observation, why throw in that little message about there having been slavery in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe?

 Yes, I fully understand there were slaves in early America, just as there were in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe

That does in no way negate the fact of slavery in America. I am not in Africa, the UK or Europe,  I am in America and so my scope is limited as to what I can speak of  in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe. So, I guess what you are saying is that since there was enough slavery to go around, why shouldn’t America take it up as well? Oh, we all know the answer to that. America was damn sure as hell not about to take the ‘high road’ and still hasn’t!

Why Attempting To Shut Down The Democratic National Convention Is Too Little, Too Late!

democratic national convention

 

 

The Democratic National Convention will be held in Philadelphia, PA from July 25-July 28.

The 2016 Democratic National Convention is the gathering at which delegates of the United States Democratic Party will choose their nominees for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States in the 2016 national election.

So, got your protest sign dusted off and ready for action? Got your ‘tear gas’ repellant handy? I really don’t know if there is such a thing, but I thought if, just in case there is, you could include it because you are going to need it. Now then, got someone’s phone number memorized so that you can use your one phone call to call them for bail money? Got your insurance card stuffed in your backpack so that if you get beaten about the head by the KKKops, when they finally let you out of jail, you can head straight on over to the hospital and have your injuries checked out?

I would not go anywhere near the Democratic National Convention for the very reason that it would do not one bit of good. The attendees at this convention already know that there will be protesters there and that extra KKKops have been called in to help with the arrests. The KKKops will be fully prepared to deal with your ass when you show up. Have you forgotten about all of the armored vehicles that are now patrolling the streets of our cities thanks in part to the Department of Defense(DoD) transferring over $4.3 billion of military equipment to the police? That is going to come in handy when they need to control your ass. And control you, they will. This is exactly why we are at this point. Because we have been controlled and we did not care. So now, at this late hour, we want to start showing our outrage over this sham voting system that we have that has been rigged from day one. We want to protest over the fact that we allowed things to disintegrate to what we see today.

Yes indeed, go to Philadelphia and protest. Take your bandanas and wrap them around your face. Take whatever you can with you to keep your eyes from streaming when the KKKops spray them with mace and then tear gas your ass. And then ask yourself on the bus ride home, “What did I accomplish?” No need to ask, I will tell you. Not a goddamn thing, unless you think that getting a misdemeanor and having to pay a fine, is an accomplishment, if you think getting tear-gassed is an accomplishment, getting beaten about the head by the KKKops is an accomplishment. And some reporter might actually capture a picture of you with tears streaming down your face while being hauled, unceremoniously, into a police van and then whisked away to a stinking holding cell with hundreds of others, sitting around one funky ass toilet.

So, yes indeed, take your ass to Philadelphia and protest the entire time over the fact that you failed to act until now and now, you think that by running to Philadelphia where the elites will be holding their “Fuck you over” ceremonies, that they will actually consider why you are outside somewhere, getting your ass kicked by the KKKops  and they will recognize and give a shit over your dissatisfaction with the electoral process in AmeriKKKa.

When you were busy hanging that filthy rag that is a symbol of this nation on Flag Day, when you were busy celebrating Memorial Day, thanks in part to those who will be attendees at this convention since they are the warmongers,  you could have been protesting, en masse, consistently. Only a sustained movement could make a difference. Your sporadic attempts to protest on certain days and at certain events is not going to get it done. And the elites know that you cannot sustain a movement because you’ve got to rush back to your Wendy’s “Can I take Your Order,” $7.25 an hour part-time job, that is, up until they replace you with brand new kiosks. You’ve got to rush back to your retail sales job that is already up in the air because retail stores are shuttering their doors in unprecedented numbers.

You have waited too late to go rushing around to protest because now that your ass is grass, thanks to apathy and complacency that was the rule of the day for decades too numerous to count and the bill collectors are nipping at your heels and you’ve had to move back home with mom and dad because you’ve got student loan debt out the ass and no way of paying it back, it’s now, protest showdown time in Philadelphia. This is not the old west where you can just shoot it out with your enemy in the street and become the biggest gun in the west until somebody faster than you comes along and drops your ass. Newsflash, your ass has already been drop kicked and you’re about to hit the ground. And so now, it is protest time.  Again, too damn late!

Take a look around you. Read the news. How many times have Negroes taken to the streets to protest over the murder by racist KKKops of other Negroes and what were the results? Even more killings of Negroes by racist ass KKKops, that’s the result. But you say, “You’re not a Negro” and to that I’ll simply say, “It does not matter. If you do not belong in the top income bracket, again, your ass is grass, but you just thought that it couldn’t happen to you. Well, it could and it did!” And so now, you want to protest over the direction this country is going. Too late. It is going there and there is nothing that you can do to stop it. When there may have been a point in time to nip this in the bud, we did nothing. And now we think that a hashtag and a Facebook ‘like’ is going to get things done. Well, you may meet up with some of your Facebook friends at the Philadelphia protest, but in the end, every single one of your Facebook friends will be just as fucked as you are; tear gassed and beaten by the KKKops, arrested, jailed, fined and sent back home with their tails tucked between their legs. Just ask those who were once, OWS (Occupy Wall Street).

Regardless of who slithers inside the Oval Office, whether it be Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, this house of cards is going to continue to collapse. Wars will continue. Wall Street will continue its game of smoke and mirrors, jobs will continue to be outsourced, robots will be rolled off assembly lines to take the jobs of ‘humans’, trade agreements will result in more income inequality which will add to the numbers of the unemployed, the homeless and the uninsured until it gets around to affecting US all. Food stamps will be gutted, AGAIN! Funding for other social programs will get cut, again and the soup lines will be endless and more tent cities will pop up. This is the AmeriKKKa that we sat on our ass for decades and waited for. But, you go right ahead and protest now what has already been put into play!

Oh, and before I forget, remember to wear Red, White and Blue on Independence Day. You won’t need to ‘wear’ those colors to your protest at the Democratic National Convention near the end of July because you’ll see those colors, aplenty when the KKKops get through with the disgruntled, FINALLY disillusioned, tired and poor huddled masses of protesters.

 

“Damn, Ted Cruz! You Ain’t Even From Here!!”

candidates for president

Bernie, I wanna vote for you,
but I just don’t feel the BERN!
You said if you don’t get the nomination
then it’s got to be Hillary’s turn!

Hillary, I can’t help but despise.
Your war crimes have me stunned.
You are one foul ass stinking warwhore
and if I slept with you, I’d want a refund.

Dude with the bad comb-over,
to you, I don’t know what to say.
You’re one egotistical piece of shit.
But you as president? That’ll be the day!

Damn Ted Cruz! You ain’t even from here!
How the hell you get away with that?
Canada, come get your native son,
or do you want us to exterminate this rat?

Now, who the hell else is there to vote for?
Give me a name and I will write it in.
And for the love of all that’s unholy,
I hope these assholes don’t have a twin!

As far as I am concerned, all of the above named should be disqualified and therefore, unable to become president for one reason or another. We ALL know why that warwhore Hillary Clinton should be disqualified. Hell! That warwhore never saw a warmonger she wouldn’t crawl into bed with. Bernie Sanders is just playing a game since he’s already let it be known that “He got Hillary’s back!” if he don’t get the nomination. Comb-over is in it for ego purposes and for entertainment for this Roman circus of presidential ‘gladiators’. Cruz is most definitely NOT qualified at all. For fuck’s sake, he is NOT even a natural born citizen. His ass was born in Canada! So, what I would like to know is this. Where are the ‘Obama Birthers’? Why isn’t Ted Cruz’s birth certificate getting the same microscopic examination that Barack Obama’s birth certificate received? All I hear from the ‘Birther Movement’ is the sound of crickets chirping. “CHIRRRRUP! CHIRRRUP!” What the hell is up with that shit???!! Chirrup up a plausible goddamn response to the question, BIRTHERS!

So, who is left? Why, there is the Green Party candidate, but we didn’t hear a peep out of lamestream media about the other parties  and their candidates. Once again, as usual, the corporations pick and choose the president of the United States and we stand in long lines, hoping that our IDs will gain us access to the voting booth so that we can ‘vote’ for the next president. Get real! You ain’t never elected one single goddamn president and if you think you have, all you ‘Dorothys’ out there,  close your eyes, tap your heels together three times and then wake the fuck up!

We Turn A Blind Eye!

 

eye

Drones strike nearby

Innocent children die

Widowed mothers cry

Missiles cross the sky

Our bloodlust, we satisfy

Treaties, we nullify

Israel, we gratify

Torture, we justify

The truth, we classify

Countries, we occupy

The innocent, we vilify

Murder, we glorify

The media prints the lie

Their bullshit, we gladly buy

The world, we terrify

We don’t question, “Why?”

Silently, we comply

We’ll eat our apple pie

on the fourth of this July

and drink and just get high

since freedom does not apply

And justice has no ally

We turn a blind eye

to the horrors,  we can’t deny.

Recognize yourself in this one? I am sure you do! Now, you can look away from the truth of this one if you want, but the shoe fits and you are wearing it; stupid, clueless Americans! And while I am at it, let me disabuse you of the notion that there is anything, ANYTHING at all exceptional about you, ’cause there ain’t! I do realize that since there is nothing but air in the space between your ears, you’re finding this hard to absorb. Let me make it more clear for you. You are a stupid, useless fuck! You think the world revolves around you because you are an American. Newsfuckingflash, it SO doesn’t and you are simply a piece of shit that just refuses to get flushed down the goddamn toilet despite my many attempts to flush the lot of you, down! You ain’t getting flushed for lack of my trying and that is for damn sure!

 

The United States Government Is Harvesting Organs Of Detainees!

dick with detainees heart

Breaking news! The story that the MSM refuses to cover has been leaked. A former CIA official, who shall remain anonymous for obvious reasons, has come forward with the claim that the U.N. has documented proof that the U.S. has been systematically ‘disappearing’ people from nearly every country on the planet in order to harvest their organs. The claim that these detainees are terrorists is ludicrous and in fact, the Obama Administration has authorized the harvesting of the organs of these prisoners. Dick Cheney is an actual recipient of a heart from a ‘disappeared’ detainee.

With secret prisons or so-called ‘black sites’, the Obama Administration through the use of an executive order has been detaining thousands of innocent people without due process and who have not been charged with a crime. Although, the ‘official’ version has been that these prisoners were on the ‘terror watch’ list, this has never been confirmed. The real reason is that the elites that are opting for a New World Order, in spite of practicing devil worship, have been unable to raise their numbers from the dead and, therefore, have come up with a viable alternative to reducing their dwindling numbers by harvesting organs. They are not going out without a fight. And as many of us are aware, they are the behind the scenes puppet masters.

The U.S. government has long taken the stance that the harvesting of organs is a crime but has that stopped the U.S. from drone striking innocent civilians or invading sovereign nations without just cause or initiating coups to topple democratically elected leaders? The Obama Administration has just announced that Venezuela is a national security threat. Watch what happens next. It is time for regime change and another coup will be attempted. And so the assertion that the United States government is harvesting organs of detainees is not just another conspiracy theory but is in fact, reality.

Updates will be posted as they come in! Stay tuned!

Mr. Robertson, Sell The Car And Keep Walking!

Mr Robertson

 

James Robertson, a Detroit resident was featured in a story about his supposed ‘plight’ of having to walk more than 20 miles a day to get to his job and has been doing this for 10 years. Since his story went ‘viral’, Mr. Robertson has been bombarded with media attention and well wishers have raised more than $310,000 to help him purchase a car. When trying to obtain insurance for Mr. Robertson, the quote for insurance was $15,000 a year in premiums, which is astronomical, but apparently, is considered to be the norm for insurance premiums in Detroit, Michigan. Mr. Robertson earns $10.55 an hour and therefore, could not save for a vehicle and thus began his 20 mile hike to work for the past 10 years.

When all the hype is over and the cameras have been turned elsewhere, Mr. Robertson will be back at square one when the money runs out and his vehicle requires maintenance and the insurance premium comes due.

Mr. Robertson, you are probably far more healthy due to all the walking that enabled you to get to and from your job in Detroit, Michigan for ten years. Also, think of all the money that would have gone to paying vehicle taxes, gas, insurance, maintenance expenses and all of the other expenses related to owning a motor vehicle. In other words, corporate America has missed you, Mr. Robertson. Welcome back!

Since you have walked for ten years, your body is fit and in shape to continue and therefore, you would in all likely hood, live longer and I am pretty sure that you are not diabetic and you are certainly not obese, judging from your picture. But all of that is about to change once you get behind the wheel of what someone thinks is an improvement over your current situation. If we can, we all need to follow your example of walking as much as possible. It would go a long way in placing a lid on the number of pharmaceutical drugs that are inside our medicine cabinet.

What I would like to know is why this gift is perceived as a good thing when we are inundated with the horrors of co2 emissions or greenhouse gasses that aid and abet climate change all while the health benefits of walking, flew right out the window? This man should have been hailed as a shining example of what we should all strive for. He has put a damper on corporate profits for the past 10 years and now, he is being reeled in. He has reduced his carbon footprint and now, it is perceived as a really, really good thing to rev up his carbon footprint. Seriously? Will there ever be a general consensus that walking or taking mass transit is better for our planet as opposed to gassing up the vehicle and fouling up the atmosphere? People! For the love of the planet, figure out just what the hell you want! Corporate profits or less greenhouse gasses and healthier people and a healthier planet?

Oh and congratulations are in order, I guess, Mr. Robertson.

 

We Don’t Speak From Our Own Heart!

speak from heart

Must we despair and give into gloom
when fortune’s smile turns sour?
We have raised a flag that’s white.
And from their wrath, we cower.

We copy and paste so many words.
And we pass them down each day.
We don’t speak from our own heart,
instead, we quote whatever they say.

How can our voices ever be heard
if we don’t send them down the line?
We blog because they have silenced us.
They have silenced your thoughts and mine.

If I quote from you and you quote from me
then our story, we shall tell.
There is someone wanting to know
that in fact, we are not for sale.

Who will hear your thoughts or mine
if we allow them all to die?
And when history tells our story
they will hear it from those who lie!

I wrote this because I think it’s a shame that all of us have a brain and we have eyes and we can see what is going on. But instead of spreading each other’s thoughts around, we simply post articles by Michael Snyder or Paul Craig Roberts and a host of others who are purported to be experts on the happenings of today. They already have a wide following because if the blog world is busy re-posting their articles, I am pretty sure that they’ve got their own website that gets loads of attention.

What people need to see, I think, is for those of us who are not paid writers with established websites to post our thoughts. People from all over the world come to our site, not to re-read something that they’ve seen a thousand times over, they want our perspective. But instead, what they get is the perspective of someone else and we are taking their position, even if we agree with it and running with it at the expense of all the other unsung heroes out there. There are so many of us who are gifted and talented with words and poetry and photography and we should desire to spread our thoughts and what is in our hearts all over the internet. How else are we going to counter all of the propaganda that is put out by the ‘lamestream’ media? How else are we going to become a viable entity instead of continuing to enjoy obscurity and in some cases, bemoaning it?

I quite often find myself moving on past those who simply post a short bit from some article they found somewhere and instead, I focus on reading the blogs that are posted by people who tell the story from their own perspective; from their point of view. It is always most interesting and eye opening to know that there are indeed, many of us who are in tune to what’s what. We just have a different way of saying it and yet, when we say it, it never gets heard.

In short, support each other. We all know that things are looking pretty bleak and everyone wants an audience. And for those who say, “I just write for myself.” If that were the case, you’d keep a journal beside your bed and not post it online. But be that as it may, try re-blogging someone else’s post other than Paul Craig Roberts. Re-blog the guy’s blog that you just read and found his point was solid, right on the mark or struck a chord with you. It just may strike one with someone else and so on and on it goes.

Fuck The Fake Media!

Fuck the fake media and fuck their lies.
They’ve an agenda that’s against our very lives.

Their fake ass shit is smoke and mirrors.
They hide the true faces of our killers.

We’re to forget about the war we fight in Syria,
and not think about the shit we stirred in Libya.

Have you forgotten the invasion of Iraq?
Why isn’t the media focusing on that?

They distract us with their instigating shit,
and have us listen to a lie that Holder spit!

We all know that Obama is a puppet.
And Henson’s got himself another Muppet.

Obama never stood for hope and change,
and Muppet Holder loves the New York Stock Exchange.

Now let’s all turn our backs on CNN.
They’re owned by the shadow bogeymen.

When we fight amongst ourselves, it’s what they want,
and that is why they make up shit to taunt,
the people of all races into hate.
Don’t listen and do not take the bait.

If we all march together and as one,
and maintain the momentum, they will run.

Their aim is to divide us into groups.
If we fall for that shit, then we are dupes.

Never trust the media; they are whores,
for the elites that will destroy us with their wars.

The fake ass mainstream media is designed to distract, divide and conquer us. If we are fighting each other, the oligarchy win and they are who the media whores whore themselves out for. If we can learn to come together to fight against those who are behind the scenes of this shit stirring, they lose and that is why they have upped the ante, so to speak. It’s no holds barred. Wake up! Fight, but let’s not fight each other. We need each other and that IS the truth.
