Well, I for one, am not getting out my dusty ass, lame ass protest sign. Sorry Alton Sterling, but since it did not work for Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley-Jones, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, Sandra Bland, John Crawford, Ezell, Ford, Akai Gurley, Rumain Brisbon, Jerame Reid, Artago Damon Howard, Jeremy Lett, Thomas Allen, Charly Leondeu Keunang, Naeschylus Vinzaint, Tony Robinson, Anthony Hill, Bobby Gross, Frank Shepherd, William Chapman, David Felix, Brendon Glenn, Kris Jackson, Spencer McCain, Albert Joseph Davis, Samuel DuBose, Christian Taylor and on and on it goes, it did not work for you or for those who will be added to this list.
If I tweet about it, that should do the trick. If I post my outrage about what happened on Facebook, that will make a difference. But I chose to only write a poem about what happened to you and so I am just as much to blame for what is going down as the people I call out. I am a ‘do nothing’ hypocrite just like we all are. We sit back and we watch this go down every single day and we do nothing because marching does nothing, lighting up Twitter and Facebook and penning poems, does nothing. I am aiding and abetting in what has been happening to Black people all across this murderous hellhole and so no, I do not sit on my sanctimonious ass and call everyone else out without including my ‘do nothing’ ass in with the lot of you!
And hoping that Alton Sterling rests in peace is like suggesting that Alton Sterling has gone to a ‘better place’ Get real! The man is as dead as a doorknob and he damn sure got no peace here and he is expected to get some restful slumber while awaiting the rapture? AGAIN!!! Get real!!!!
But wait for it! The “GASP!” Justice Department has been called in. Yep! That’s gonna help! I gagged on that lie! Oh yes I did! The ‘officers’ are on ‘paid leave’ pending, once again, not a goddamn thing and so, nothing to see here folks. Move it along! Just ask the KKKops that murdered Freddie Gray and ALL the others!! And as always, this is just another fucking day in paradise!
Although this one is pretty much self-explanatory, I will just add that though there are a few, and I do mean few stories about progress that some Negroes have made, the fact remains that this is no time to be celebrating because the majority of us are fucked up and just a glance around will make that fact, quite obvious.
I was pretty much torn over what to post about this month and I see no reason to attempt to put together some feel good shit because nothing ‘feels’ good to me, not at all. Too much nasty shit has gone down and the murder of Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Renisha McBride, Aiyana Jones, Sandra Bland, Walter Scott, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and there are so many others are still too raw for me, emotionally speaking, to post any uplifting stories about Negro history during what the ‘whites’ have designated, “Black History Month.”
I will leave it up to others to showcase the ‘feel good’ shit of Negro history and if any inspiration should strike me, you’ll be the second to know.
I remember waking up and I didn’t know where I was. Somebody told me that I was shot, shot twice by the fuzz.
I had been walking down the street, holding a bag of chips to eat. I heard a popping sound, felt the burn in my side. I fell to the ground with eyes open wide.
I heard him yelling in my ear, “Nigga, don’t you move!” He shot me for no reason, I guess he was in the mood. My mama, she is crying, she don’t know what to do. Don’t let this happen again; they could do this shit to you.
I’m not a gangsta or a thug, but they got off with just a shrug. They say I’ll never walk again, not in Massa’s slave pen.
So, go to Massa and wail and whine! Beg that heartless, soulless swine to stop filling us with lead until we are maimed or dead!
Does this sound familiar? It should! This has happened times too numerous to count and since we just finished celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day, let us take a moment and consider what accomplishments and strides we have made towards ending police brutality, racism, mass incarceration, income inequality, abject poverty, rampant unemployment, a school-to-prison pipeline, low economic achievement, gentrification, discrimination and segregation, not to mention voting rights. Are we good? Those protest signs that beg ole Massa to give us a goddamn break and get his boot off our necks are working, are they not? Heard of any police shootings of unarmed Black people lately? Heard of any strange hanging incidents in jail cells of young Black women who had everything to live for? Heard of any Black children getting shot while playing in a park? Heard of the gutting of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by the Supreme Court? Heard Obama say that he is mad as hell over the murder of little Black children by racist cops? HA! That’ll be the day!
So, how are we doing? We have come so far since the days of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his merry band of protesters, have we not? You still printing signs? Why? We have come SO far! Surely there is no need for more protest signs. Surely. Yeah! Wake me when your signs and your walking shoes actually accomplish something. Until then, continue on as though it is not your blood that is flowing down every street in this shithole called, AmeriKKKa! Because if you were THAT concerned about all of the issues in the aforementioned paragraph, believe me, the last thing you’d be doing about them is marching with a dusty lame ass fifty-year old protest sign!
Of Dr. King, we are just so proud. That man, he always drew a crowd. He paved the way to a much brighter day. His dream is alive in every way.
Tamir Rice is here to tell his story. And Sandra Bland has no need to ever worry, that her life will be snuffed out in a cell, because Dr. King, he rang the freedom bell.
Michael Brown is in college where he belongs. Eric Garner is in church singing spiritual songs. Walter Scott is still driving down the street. Freddie Gray is sitting down to a meal to eat.
They all owe their lives to Dr. King. He said, “Let freedom ring! Let freedom ring!” On the mountaintop, he saw through space and time. And yet, they killed him while he was in his prime.
We thank him for the debt he willingly paid, and for all the sacrifices he and his family made. But what we will never know for certain, is how he would react when they finally raise the curtain, on a show that is a tragedy of the darkest kind, and where Blacks are still left so far behind. This play will not have a happy ending, for its ending is just like its beginning.
Behold, the face of slavery is still Black. And as in days of old, we are under attack. But a man had a dream for which he died. Was it all for naught? I’ll let you decide!
I am posting this a little early because I want you to take some time to reflect on the question I posed. “Was it all for naught?” If Black people have made so many gains in the decades since the Civil Rights Movement, then where are they? If we as a people have ‘moved’ forward, then where are the results? #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Give me a break! If we as a people had moved, there would be no need for the #BLACKLIVESMATTER Movement, now would there? The incarceration rate for Black men is off the charts. Millions of Black people live in deep poverty and a ridiculously high number of them are Black children. Millions of Black people are jobless, homeless and hungry and lack healthcare. But here we are, about to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. Celebrate what, I ask you? Tell me! What is there tocelebrate? Staggering unemployment figures for Black youth and young adults? A homelessness epidemic? Mass incarceration? A school-to-prison pipeline? Out-of-control racist KKKops brutalizing and murdering unarmed Black people? Grand Juries that refuse to hand down indictments on racist thugs with badges? Gun violence in Black communities that are so impoverished as to be likened to 3rd world nation conditions?
And yet the ‘whites’ sit back and gleefully point the finger at what is going down in communities of color and point to how ‘violent they are when they know why. Whites know that this is all done by design, but it is so easy for them to live in their little ‘white bread’ world and hurl invectives and “I told you sos” when ‘whites’ are hell bent on gentrifying neighborhoods that once housed Black people because the suburbs was once the place to be if you were ‘white’. You sit somewhere with your holier-than-thou attitudes as though your shit don’t stink. You shamelessly and callously wish death on a group of people who were not responsible for being dragged to this hellhole you call, America. You strut around like proud peacocks, puffing your chests out and pretending that you’re not rotten filth when you are actually worse than that. And you have theunmitigated gall to pretend to acknowledge Dr. King with your phony ass displays of righteous indignation over the brutal treatment he received at the hands of ‘whites’. You have the nerve to speak his name, to post his “I Have A Dream” speech as though you ever did a thing to help bring his dream to fruition. You’ve done everything possible to see to it that his dream was never realized and you are not fit to read his name, much less speak it. Why you have not burst into flames upon speaking his name is a complete and utter mystery to me because all that should be left of you is ‘white’ ash!
The only thing I can say to the ‘whites’ is this, “If it were up to me…if it were up to me!!!”
#BLACKLIVESMATTER, tell that to Tamir Rice! Go to that child’s grave and stand over him and tell him that “BLACKLIVESMATTER!” If he could, he would rise up and slap the goddamn shit out of you! And if he didn’t, I would!
“The outcome will not cheer anyone, nor should it,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said. He blamed the shooting on a “perfect storm” of human error and miscommunication.
Let me get this straight! Twelve-year old Tamir Rice was playing with a toy gun in a park and someone called the police and three seconds after the KKKops arrive, Tamir Rice was shot and killed. Now, the County Prosecutor is calling this a “perfect storm” of human error and MISCOMMUNICATION???!!!
First of all, the only human at the scene was Tamir Rice because that piece of Klan filth that murdered him was NOT human. How can it be called ‘human’ when it killed a child? Oh, that’s right! To the ‘whites’, Tamir Rice, being Black was only three-fifths human and so there you have it folks! Nothing to see here! Move it along! A thing was killed! A possession! A slave! The slave patrol was dispatched because a slave got out and was found playing. This was against the law and was punishable by death. So it was written hundreds of years ago and so the very same law remains in effect to this very day. What the fuck has changed?
Second, the County Prosecutor, ‘white assed’ Timothy McGinty goes on to say that there was also the problem of MISCOMMUNICATION! How in unholy hell could Tamir Rice have communicated a goddamn thing in the three seconds that it took for the KKKop to gun him down? What could a scared and bewildered child say to a bastard that is pointing a gun at him? Tamir Rice was given NO time to say a goddamn thing! My bad! His skin tone spoke FOR him! It told that Klan bastard that he was of no account because he was not lily-white assed. That was the only communication that filth in blue was concerned with and that is why Tamir Rice is dead and buried and no one shall be held accountable for his murder!
And now, here comes #BLACKLIVESMATTER to the rescue! That ‘movement’ is going to? To? To what? Continue marching up to the doors of Klan headquarters and demand that those racist ass shits inside, open the goddamn door and ‘communicate’ with them on how they are going to stop the mass murders of Black children, women and men ? #BLACKLIVESMATTER is going to do what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and all of the other protesters could NOT do fifty years ago. #BLACKLIVESMATTER is going to yell even louder, march even longer and protest more enthusiastically than ever before and that is going to stop what happened to Tamir Rice from happening to another Black twelve-year old child. Well, isn’t it? Has there been any murders of Blackpeople since #BLACKLIVESMATTER came on the scene? Yes? No? Uh..yes, there have been many, many more murders of Black women, children and men since then. So what does that say for marching and protesting? To me it says, IT’S NOT WORKING! So, what next, #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Why don’t you come on up in here and tell us what your plans are since the protesting you’ve been doing has not put a dent in the murder rate of Black people by racist ass KKKops! Grand Juries all across this shithole are coming back with the same findings; “NOT GUILTY! NOT GUILTY! NOT GUILTY!” And what do you do about that, #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Your members pick up yet another protest sign and march through the streets, clogging up traffic and that is it! Meanwhile, another Tamir Rice travesty is about to unfold. Meanwhile, another Sandra Bland travesty is about to unfold. Meanwhile, another Michael Brown travesty is about to unfold. Meanwhile, another John Crawford travesty is about to unfold. Meanwhile, another Renisha McBride travesty is about to unfold. And there you stand #BLACKLIVESMATTER with your protest signs and your bullhorns, just a shouting to the enemy, begging them to stop killing us. Here is an idea. Stop walking and start crawling to the ‘whites’ and see if that will help. Supplicate yourselves even further and slither across the ground to the ‘whites’ and see if that will get them to change from the vile, filthy, depraved, barbaric and racist shits they are into kind, nice, benevolent, caring and concerned ‘humans’.
So, to the other REAL BAD BLACK FOLKS(I am one too), here in AmeriKKKa, plainly speaking, we are failing our children just as we failed Tamir Rice. The ‘whites’ are not going to stop killing us. They may march with us for a bit and talk the talk but when all is said and done, they will not be the ones to change things for us. We have got to do that for ourselves. How many more years are you going to continue marching and holding signs stating that your life matters? What is the point in that? If you feel the need to tell ‘whites’ that your life matters, then you must already know that to them, your life, does NOT matter! You will never matter to them! You still cannot grasp that? Well, time for another history lesson because you just don’t get it! These are the same worthless shits that stole this land and are still laying claim to it. These are the same worthless shits that massacred the Indians, stole you from your homeland,dragged you over here, chained you into slavery, threw you to the wolves, initiated Jim Crow, experimented on you, denied you the right to vote, still considers you to be only three-fifths human, is moving you out of your neighborhoods by the process of gentrification, better known as ‘making you homeless’ and since laws are being placed on the books in every city in this shithole to basically make it a crime to be homeless, well now, into a jail cell, you go! These ‘white shits’ are also dumbing you down and sending you from school straight into a prison cell.
The worthless ass ‘white’ shits that are marching beside you and who you are marching up to, expecting to get relief from, are the progeny of the same shits that set all of this in motion. What is wrong with you? Are you really that stupid, Black people? Your enemy is the very same government that so-called ‘founded’ this nation, but in reality, stole it, just as it stole YOU! Just as it fucked up the Indians, gave them small pox blankets, introduced them to alcohol, broketreaties, left and right and herded them onto reservations and then scooped up all of the choice land for themselves and they still have it to this day. And yet, there you sit, just wondering why the government does not step in and put an end to open season on Black people in this shithole. It is because the law of the land as pertaining to slaves is still the law of the land today! We are still slaves! Don’t reservations still exist? How are the Indians doing today? Don’t know? Go to an Indian Reservation. You will find out quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry. Don’t know how Black people are faring? Go to Detroit, MI. Go to Baltimore, MD. Go to New Orleans, LA. Go to Skid Row in CA. Go to any damn state in this fucked up shithole! Again, you’ll get a clue; quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry!
Do you still think that the next Tamir Rice will thank you for continuing to do nothing? Because that is exactly what you do when the only thing you continue to do is to pick up yet another protest sign and march and yell at the whites that “BLACK LIVES MATTER!” If that is the case, then why is Tamir Rice dead and no one is being held accountable for murdering him? Get real and cut the bullshit!
When you get tired of dying before your eighteenth birthday and when you’re tired of hearing that you’re worthless anyway, that protest sign, you will put down and the fire in your soul will burn through your body that is four hundred years old.
When you get tired of police brutality and the injustice of gentrification, and when you get tired of the school-to-prison pipeline of no education, that protest sign, you will put down and the marching on tired feet will not be enough to quench the thirst for liberation and you won’t accept defeat.
When you get tired of the National Guard getting called out to stop you and when they fire the shots at your tired, worn-out body, though that’s nothing new, that protest sign, you will put down and you must heed the words of Malcolm X. For no man can continue to surrender to ropes tightened around innocent necks.
And when you get tired of mass incarceration because of the color of your skin and when the cops are on your ass from sun up to sun down, yet again, that protest sign, you will put down and you will listen to the anger in your heart. For no Black man, woman or child can resist the revolution and you must take part.
And when the smoke has cleared and so many lie dead or wounded from the fight and when you think that what you did was all for nothing and that good is never right, that protest sign that you put down, shove it up the white man’s ass and turn around And torch everything in sight; every white man’s asset, burn it to the ground!
When you get tired, my Black brothers and sisters, you will realize that protest signs, marches and hands raised in the air is not enough. When you get tired of hearing that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is to be revered for his non-violent stance of supplicating himself to his enemy and encouraged you to do likewise, you will then realize your only course of action and you will take it. The white man knows this and that is why he is hell-bent on incarcerating you off the streets; that is why he is hell-bent on donning that blue or brown uniform, once he sheds his white sheet, and commences to riddle you with hundreds of bullets. He knows what’s coming. You don’t. Not yet. But you will. Yes, that’s right. He already knows what his fate is and who is going to seal it, but you don’t. Not yet. But you will. And when you do, it is game over for him and he knows that!
I don’t even call it violence when it’s in self defense; I call it intelligence. –
I know, I know! I promised, no more! But I had just one more to belt out and there it is! Merry fucking Christmas from all of us who wouldn’t be in this shithole if our ancestors had been left the fuck alone!
This poem was born thanks to The Militant Negro™. One of his most recent posts really caught at my heart because what keeps happening to the Negro in Amerikkka is just SO goddamn wrong. Yet another Black man that was wrongfully convicted of a crime, spent 27 years in prison. This man was innocent and the white criminal injustice system, because this man was not white, incarcerated him on bogus ass charges and knew it. And yet, even after having spent 27 years in prison and most likely experienced untold brutalities and had atrocities committed against his person, this man actually forgave the shits that got him erroneously convicted. This man could have been sent to death row and put to death and he was innocent. Mr. Donald Eugene Gates is a more forgiving person than I could ever be. You see, when I hear or see stories such as this one, it does not fill my heart with a warm glow. It does not make me want to go to church and thank a non-existent ‘god’ for ‘keeping my spirits up’ because I don’t believe in some ‘god’ that would allow an innocent man to rot in prison for 27 years thanks to pure fucking racism, prejudice, white privilege and slavery. Yes, slavery! Because prison is just the new form of slavery. The slave patrolsare out hassling Black people on a daily basis. The Klan dressed in blue or brown take off their white sheets, don those blue or brown uniforms and commence to busting caps in Black asses. And when they’re not doing that, they are imprisoning Black men, women and children on bullshit charges. They are killing them inside jail and prison walls and blaming it on their mental status. “They committed suicide.” Well there has been a goddamn rash of suicides. And some have even been handcuffed, sitting in the back of a police cruiser and somehow managed to shoot themselves in the head. Then there are the ones that conveniently find trash bags and snuff their lives out. Bullshit!
One thing about me, I am not forgiving and I don’t forget and I sure as hell don’t pretty shit up, tie a nice little bow on it and present it to my readers. Oh no! That is not my way. That is not how I roll. The shit that goes down is filthy. It is vile. It is barbaric and it is happening to people who look like me and the time to be all nice when talking about this has passed. A part of my soul that writes poetry is dead. It died from sheer misery. It died from reading about the atrocities that are committed daily against people that had the nerve to be born with a lot of melanin in their skin. That is a crime? That is punishable by death? Once again, for the motherfuckers that are slow or otherwise dumb as shit, my Black ass and every other Black person that is a descendant of African slaves did not get into a goddamn boat and row the fuck over to this shithole. Don’t think for one goddamn second that I am going to worry about hurting some motherfucker’s feelings when white asses don’t give a fuck for what goes down against Black people in this shithole every single goddamn day. And don’t even act like you don’t notice it.
No indeed, I am NOT Mr. Gates, the forgiving’ for what was done to him. AGAIN, that is not me. And the problem is that we have too many Black people who are just like Mr. Gates; worshipping some white man’s ‘god’ and being all forgiving. What has being forgiving got Black people in this shithole? In the morgue, piled sky high, that’s what it’s gotten them. It has gotten them wall-to-wall inside prison walls enriching corporate assholes; making money for the white man, same as in those good ole days of slavery that never went anywhere. And they are not going anywhere as long as Black people continue to march down the goddamn street with cap in hand to the filthy ass whites, expecting some damn justice. This is going to continue as long as we continue to just print protest sign after protest sign and beg for justice and peace. It is really working out for us, isn’t it?
Mr. Gates is in ill health. Go figure! And what he received in compensation for what he went through was an insult but the really sad part is that even though his life was deemed worthless, Mr. Gates more than likely will never get to ‘enjoy’ the millions he received for being wrongfully imprisoned for 27 years and yet, he forgave those that fabricated evidence that got him wrongfully convicted. And for that, I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry!
As a descendant of African slaves, I want to take this opportunity to welcome Syria’s refugees to America. May you have a better time of it here in America than my ancestors did. And include those of us who are descendants of slaves, as well. I want you to know that even though Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless than white families, we still hope that you fare better than we do. And even though Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population, Syrian refugees, you will promptly step right into housing and what is so great about that is that millions of people are in line waiting on affordable housing to open up. They have been on waiting lists so damn long that many have given up and are homeless. But we have housing available for you, refugees from Syria. Ain’t that sweet?! So, you come right on over here and get at the head of the line, in front of ALL the people that have been waiting for years for affordable housing. Come on over here and we shall roll out the red carpet for you because we have no refugees over here in America. We have no homelessness epidemic here. We have no homeless tent cities in Detroit and in California. We have no Skid Row in Los Angeles because Los Angeles is NOT struggling to manage rising homelessness beyond skid row, now is it?
Homelessness in Los Angeles has spread far beyond the area known as Skid Row. The number of people living on the streets has risen 12 percent in the past two years. And now some parts of the city are struggling to manage big homeless populations they’ve never seen before.
Nope! Skid Row is just a figment of my imagination just as it is a figment of my imagination that homeless people are living underneath Las Vegas. And many are war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and can you believe it? There are homeless children living in these tunnels as well. But refugees from Syria, they welcome you as well.
I want to state how very glad I am that Obama and the other war hawks and warmongers finally deemed it ‘humanitarian’ to host refugees from war-torn countries that were made so by said war hawks and warmongers. Never let it be said that a warmonger does not have a heart even while continuing to make refugees out of innocent men, women and children because these war hawks and warmongers like Obama and John ‘mad dog’ McCain and Lindsey Graham and every other piece of nasty and vile shit that IS the U.S. government is giving up their digs to host these Syrian refugees, are they not? Hell no! They are not! As American citizens, once again, we must overlook our own homeless refugees so that other refugees can come here and thrive and enjoy the good life that is Amerikkka. Never mind that almost two million Black people in Amerikkka call prison, home. Never mind the fact that child poverty in Amerikkka is at its highest point in 20 years, we have more than enough poverty to go around and then some, but we welcome you, refugees from Syria. We welcome you!
Over in Detroit, those poor, mostly Black folks have had their pensions cut thanks to corrupt city managers and criminal politicians, not to mention the massive water shut-offs that could affect 300,000 Detroit citizens.
It is from this incredible web that a challenge to the water shut-offs is emerging. Community organizations have filed a human rights complaint to the United Nations, demanding Michigan state impose a moratorium on the shut-offs. UN experts have already responded critically.
Yes, refugees from Syria, the situation is so bad that citizens of Detroit appealed to the U.N. for help and for their efforts, they got nothing! But when you come to Amerikkka, you will more than likely have running water. You will not be homeless. Your pension will not get cut. Sweet, ain’t it? And the people of Baltimore, MD are experiencing the same thing and they are Black, also. The only thing that you will have to contend with is that pesky ‘terrorist’ thing. Yes, white Amerikkkans fear Muslims or anyone from the Middle East because their government via the media told them to because there are NO ‘homegrown’ terrorists in Amerikkka. When a racist kills a Black person, that is not terrorism. Racists burning down Black churches is not terrorism. Racists lynching Black people is not terrorism. Racists gunning down Black people as they sit in church is not terrorism. A terrorist has been defined as a ‘person or persons of Middle Eastern origin’. The white good ole boys that call themselves the Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Brotherhood, The Aryan Circle and the ‘White Brotherhood Alliance’ and so forth and so on are AGAIN, just good ole boyz having fun. They are not extremist groups. They are protectors of the empire, Amerikkka. They keep us niggaz in our place; these slave patrols alongside the Amerikkkan gestapo pigs. But nevertheless, you won’t have to deal with them, refugees from Syria because they are too busy busting caps all up in Black asses. If you stay out of the South, the Dakotas and Texas, you should be fine; living it up in your nice house with a two-car garage in a nice section of Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine; you know, all the states that have less than a 1% Black population count.
I hear that several of you have already settled in Connecticut. Good for you!
Syrian Refugees Come to the U.S. to Find a Place They Did Not Expect
“Why did they bring us if they didn’t want us?” said the 33 year-old husband and father, recalling his initial reaction through an Arabic interpreter. “We are coming to an open country.” “A country with freedoms,” his wife, 23, said.
“We felt rejected,” her husband said. “We were depressed. How could that be the freedoms that we hear about?”
The couple were driven instead to this Connecticut city of about 130,000 people, joining seven other Syrian refugee families who have come since July. Integrated Refugee and Immigration Services, a nonprofit organization that works with Episcopal Migration Ministries, one of the nine aid agencies contracted with the federal government, had swiftly arranged for their arrival.
Ahhh..don’t feel rejected! At least not until your ass is lying on a slab in the morgue so full of bullet holes, you look like Swiss cheese! Don’t feel rejected until you are driving down the goddamn street, minding your business and a cop stops you and hassles you for no good reason and the next thing you know, you’re found hanging in a jail cell in Texas and word is, “You were depressed, grabbed a handy trash bag and commenced to committing suicide.” “Why oh why did I not put on my turn signal? If I had, I would not be placing this bag over my head and asphyxiating myself!” Do not feel rejected until your children decide to play in a park with a toy gun and the cops arrive and within two seconds, they are lying dead on the ground. Do not feel rejected until you sell a dime bag of weed to a white guy and you get thirty years for that inside a FOR PROFIT PRISON. Do not feel rejected until the unemployment rate for Syrian refugees is in the double digits. Do not feel rejected until you get called, “Mud people,” attempt to take out a conventional loan to buy a house, have excellent credit, qualify for the conventional loan but get steered to a subprime mortgage loan and lose said home and end up homeless solely because you are Black skinned. And thanks Wells Fargo from all the Black people that are out on the street, thanks to your racist ass lending policies.
So, refugees from Syria, you should do just fine because you are not a descendant of African slaves and therefore, Amerikkka SHOULD welcome you! Please step over or on us. It is what everybody else does. Join the pig force and riddle us with bullets or arrest us on bullshit charges. It is what everybody else does. Discriminate against us when the government gives you enough money to open your own business. It is what everybody else does.
And for anybody that has the nerve to think that I wrote this because I hate Muslims, go fuck yourself! I am writing this because I have been volunteering for years too numerous to count and I am sick and goddamn tired of the hopelessness I have seen and continue to see when we don’t help the homeless refugees in Amerikkka; when we don’t help those who are persecuted here in Amerikkka because of the color of their skin. Where is the goddamn assistance for them? These people have been waiting for someone to recognize their plight and do something to help them. Where were the agencies that quickly came to the aid of these Syrian refugees; the ‘Episcopal Migration Ministries’ when it came to helping this man?
A little before midnight on May 29, emergency personnel responded to a report of a burn victim under the Interstate 394 bridge at Dunwoody Avenue, according to police reports. Miller said police told him that a man walking nearby heard screaming and found his father on fire.
Or this man?
His father was taken to the hospital with burns on about 70 percent of his body, Miller said. The lower half of his body had to be amputated, and he was placed under heavy sedation. He was also put on life support.
Who helped him? His goddamn family didn’t even help him, but we have help for Syria’s refugees. Charity begins at home. Why overlook the people that are living like refugees right here in Amerikkka? What? Are these people less important or less worthy of help because they are not from Syria? These people are fighting a war every day, as well. It is called, “The War To Survive!” And it is a war! Ask any homeless person. Ask any Black person that has buried a loved one because of pure, unadulterated racism. Ask the poor in Detroit who are without running water. Ask the poor in Baltimore who are also without running water. Ask the Black men and women who are sitting inside a FOR PROFIT PRISON for selling a dime bag of weed. Ask the unarmed Black men, women and children who have been killed for no reason; noprobable cause. Ask them about being refugees in a country that never accepted them as human beings, much less as citizens that enjoyed rights. Ask Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Jordan Baker, D’Andre Berghardt Jr., Tanisha Anderson, Rumain Brisbon, McKenzie Cochran, John Crawford, Denzell Curnell, Michelle Cusseaux, Ezell Ford, Akai Gurley, Dontre Hamilton, Jason Harrison, Darrien Hunt, Marquise Jones, Tamir Rice, Ernest Satterwhite, Yvette Smith, Cameron Tillman, Victor White III, Levar Jones, Vernicia Woodard, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, and the goddamn list is endless. I had to stop somewhere but the racist ass pigs in blue or brown sure as hell don’t. But you won’t have to worry about this happening to YOU, Syrian refugees. Your skin does not have OUR deep melanin!
So, don’t bellyache about you coming to Amerikkka and not receiving the kind of welcome you were expecting. Be thankful for what you can get because all of those Black people named in the aforementioned paragraph did not get the opportunity to choose to come to Amerikkka thanks to these filthy white asses over here fucking up their country, their ancestors were kidnapped and dragged over here to become slaves and they and myself are unwanted. But you’ll fare better than they ever did. Count on it Syrian refugees!
Oh, and lest I forget, the Indians would also like to welcome the refugees from Syria because they too, are doing so great! You see, the plight of the Indigenous Peoples of America is so bad that the United Nations sent a special rapporteur, S. James Anaya to lead an inquiry, the first of its kind. What he found was a range of social ills, high rates of poverty, alcoholism, domestic violence and low educational attainment.
According to S. James Anaya, “these are a product of what’s been referred to as intergenerational trauma spanning decades, really centuries, since the founding of the country and before.”
The Indians would just love for some more folks to illegally enter this country that by rights, should be theirs, but that pesky little problem was solved by a little small pox, firewater, beads and genocide by guess who? The same shits that have turned Syria into a bombed-out shell of a country with people fleeing left and right; refugees of course. Whitey white ass just cannot contain his thirst for ALL things material, nor can he contain his blood lust. It must be sated. Indian blood has been spilled by the ton and that did not stop the white’s thirst for blood. The blood of Negro or Black people has been spilled by the ton and AGAIN, this has done nothing to stop the white man’s thirst for blood. Nothing can stop it! This is why you are refugees; people of Syria, and this is also why you are wondering why you are being rejected by the very same white filth that rendered you, homeless. Let’s see how you fare here at ground zero with us Negroes and Indians! Yeah! Read the sign to see how well WE are faring here in AmeriKKKa!
Welcome to Amerikkka! Home of the stupid, the racist and the ignorant! And last but not least, the killers!
Or what, Obama? What the fuck are YOU going to do if China does not stop construction in the South China Sea? What? Are you going to send the CIA/ISIS ‘moderate’ rebels that were ‘vetted’ by John ‘mad dog’ McCain over to China and fuck China up? Are you going to tell NATO to do to China what the U.S./NATO did to Libya? Are you going to declare war on China just as George W. ‘stupid’ Bush declared war on Iraq? Are you going to hype up some propaganda and outright lies against China just as Bush did with Iraq? Are you going to AGAIN, point out that China is a communist country and that her people have no rights? Newsfuckingflash! The U.S. is a goddamn communist country and the people of the U.S. have no goddamn rights! How many rights did Sandra Bland have? Have many rights did Eric Garner have? Have manyrights did Renisha McBride have? Have many rights did Aiyana Jones have? Freddie Gray? Walter Scott? John Crawford? Michael Brown? But you want to tell China to stop construction in the South China Sea but how many goddamn times have you told the racist ass cops to back the fuck up off Black citizens and stop killing our ass? How many times did your former Department of Justice head, Eric Holder step up and go to bat for the Black people that are incarcerated on bullshit charges? And what’s the new coonface doing about the problem of Black mass incarceration? Oh, that’s right! What problem? There ain’t a goddamn problem, not in your motherfucking book. Because you’re looking out for the whites that make a killing off private prisons. How many of them are going to bankroll your ass when you leave the White House?
But hell! I digress! What are you going to do about the $1.23 trillion dollars of U.S. debt that China is holding? Crickets chirping over that one. That’s what I thought. So what now? Are you going to disconnect China’s internet service? Are you going to smack China’s General Secretary, Xi Jinping, with your glove and call him out? Choice of weapons at dawn? Are you going to turn the ships away from America that are filled to the brim with cheap Chinese junk? I didn’t fucking think so because there goes Wal-Mart’s, Targets, Kmart’s, Dollar Trees, Dollar Generals, Family Dollars, China Dollars, Bleed A Dollars sales. AGAIN! What are you going to do to the Chinese if they don’t stop construction in the South China Sea?
Oh, you can intimidate, bully and threaten Germany and France and Canada and almost all other countries and nations, but you sure as hell cannot browbeat China with useless ass threats. Just ask Russian president, Vladimir Putin. Yep, with your sanctions against Russia, you sure showed them. Not only did Russia give over when it came to the situation in Ukraine, but Russia has also turned Edward Snowden over to you, hasn’t he and the Russians aren’t over in Syria helping Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad fight your CIA trained ISIS ‘moderate’ rebel terrorists, are they? Yeah! Russia and China, Iran and North Korea are shaking in their boots and worrying what your mentally ill military whores are going to do if you had the balls to order ‘boots on the ground’ in China, Russia, Iran and North Korea! They’re all quaking in mortal terror because America is shit! Pure unadulterated shit!
You see, China and Russia are not just another Syria and Libya and Iraq and Afghanistan and Yemen and Pakistan. Oh no! You can’t just send in your CIA goons to pay off ‘moderate’ rebels, hand them some weapons and then all hell breaks loose. Yeah! That’s the standard norm for countries like Syria, Libya, Iraq and so forth and so on, but that shit is not going to work with China. No, you’ve got to put some serious thought into what you’re going to do if China refuses to listen to you and they’ve already told you to “Fuck off!”
Beijing said Wednesday US President Barack Obama should not get involved in disputes in the South China Sea, after he demanded an end to artificial island building in the hotly contested region.
“The United States should stop playing up the South China Sea issue, stop heightening tensions in the South China Sea and stop complicating disputes in the South China Sea,” Hong Lei, a foreign ministry spokesman, said at a regular press briefing in Beijing.
And this was in response to Obama’s insistence that China cease with the construction of islands in the South China Sea because according to President Benigno S. Aquino III of the Philippines, the South China Sea is disputed territory and even though the U.S. has a military base in the Philippines, that’s not a problem, but China had better not set up shop there.
My bad! Obama did show the Chinese that he meant business.
“Yep, I am going to throw $250 million taxpayer dollars, I mean….contributions to you guys to encourage you to stand up to that really,really mean bully, China. They are such communists, while we are so democratic. We bomb countries for humanitarian reasons. Just ask Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan and I am sure that I have left some sorry ass Middle Eastern country off the list. I would send in the CIA/ISIS guys, but I don’t think the Chinese would fall for THAT. And quite honestly, that is ALWAYS the script for bringing chaos, pandemonium and bedlam to the Middle East. You see, we’re the GOOD guys and never you doubt it! Just ask France! We’re why they just had that really big false-flag ISIS operation go down. The French are bombing the hell out of ISIS now! Soon, we’ll have everyone on board. Gee! This is great! Now if I can just get the entire Asia-Pacific region to go at it, we shall have worldwide chaos, pandemonium and bedlam. And actually, I belong in Bedlam just as soon as the ICC indicts me for war crimes and I get a commuted sentence and then with my connections, I’ll get to do a short stint in Bedlam, come out and make a mint on my speeches. Ain’t life grand?”
And I am to call that lying, hypocritical slithering, corrupt, slimy war criminal sleazebag “president?” Fuck that shit!
