And Now…Wendy Williams Has Been ‘Forced’ To Apologize To Gays! For The Love Of !!!!!!!

 

I wish to hell you worthless gay motherfuckers would FORCE me to apologize for what I am about to write. Yeah! I wish you would!

Wendy Williams Faces Backlash After Appearing To Make Light Of Amy Harwick’s Death

Just days after tearfully apologizing for making comments about the LGBTQ+ community, Wendy Williams is facing criticism for appearing to make insensitive remarks about the death of Amie Harwick.

But no one is really focusing on that as much as everyone is focusing on this.

[Wendy Williams] began talking about celebrating Galentine’s Day — an unofficial holiday where women celebrate each other — and took note of the men in the audience who were clapping.

“If you’re a man and you’re clapping, you’re not even a part of this,” Williams said. “You don’t understand the rules of the day. It’s women going out and getting saucy and then going home. You’re not a part.”

“I don’t care if you’re gay. You don’t get a [menstruation] every 28 days. You can do a lot that we do, but I get offended by the idea that we go through something you will never go through,” she said before she stirred the pot. “And stop wearing our skirts and our heels. Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves?… Lookie here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are. No matter how gay.”

What the hell did she say that was wrong!!! That was not a question because she said nothing wrong!

What man gets a period? What man has ovaries, fallopian tubes, a uterus, a cervix, etc.; you know, what makes a woman, a woman? Women have the ability to carry a baby to full term, give birth and then nourish that baby even when the baby is not inside her womb, but is lying next to her heart as she feeds the baby from her own breasts and so to you transgenders and other fags out there, where is your ability to do ALL of this? The only thing you degenerates can do is take some growth hormones, have your dick tucked, put on some make-up, a dress and some high heels and then strut around telling everyone to call you a ‘she’. Hell if I will! Playing grown up dress-up is childish and dumb as hell. As little girls, we played with our mother’s makeup, put on her high heel shoes and tugged on her dresses that dragged the floor, but you miserable excuses for men have taken that to a whole other level and are actually forcing everyone to take your comical looking ass, seriously.

You’ve got everyone in this rotten Sodom and Gomorrah called Amerikkka bending over backwards for you insane deviants. It is also stated in the Hebrew Bible and in the Quran that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God because of their rampant homosexual behavior (namely, sodomy). Sodomy was a crime and now you deviants engage in that every chance you get and you want someone to recognize and agree with your debauchery and respect it. Count me the fuck out! I will never call you debauched creatures, women, because you’re not.

Make ME apologize! I wish you would! Because if you wait for an apology from me, you’re as good as dead because you will turn blue first and drop dead!

And  that goddamn piece of shit Obama that finally showed us a clean pair of heels as he exited the White House propped your damn asses up to the point whereas he had the White House lit up in rainbow colors when the Supreme Court granted you deviants the right to get married. You have no fucking idea how truly ludicrous and ridiculous two men and two women look, standing somewhere while a ‘marriage’ ceremony is being performed. And then you deviants have the nerve to look outside the ‘marriage’ to find some female to act as surrogate or some sperm bank to enable you to fulfill your ‘yearning’ for children. How fucked up is that shit? If your damn deviant nature was legit, you’d have no need to get surrogates to carry babies that you men cannot. You lesbians would have no need to head to sperm banks and come away with some stranger’s sperm in order to insert it into your female ‘spouse’ in order to procreate.

But we are ALL supposed to tread lightly because, all of a sudden, since you’ve been dragged out of the closet and emboldened by the fact that Amerikkka could no longer hide her true nature in that this country was founded by sexual deviants, it is now all the rage for everyone that was ‘in’ the closet to ‘come out’. All white men are sexual deviants and you sick perverts are not happy unless you’ve got everyone onboard with your sick and twisted shit. Get some fucking psych help because you are all insane!

The only reason a white man will have sex with a female is for the purpose of procreation and to pretend that his ass is not homosexual. Just look at what’s occurring with the Boy Scouts and with the Catholic Church. And let’s not forget why Jeffery Epstein was ‘suicided’. His trial would have lifted the lid off the most powerful homosexuals in the world; presidents, senators, judges, lawyers, Wall Street thugs, CEOs of banks, hospitals, colleges and universities and the list is endless and you fucking know this, hence why Jeffrey Epstein had to be ‘suicided’. but I damn well know that the deviant shit that was taking place did not just cease with Epstein’s murder. Anyone with more than two brain cells connected and working should know that the vile ass, perverted shit you were doing, you are still at it because your fucking asses are just too sick, twisted and deviant to quit that shit!

Unfortunately, Wendy Williams is not the first Black woman who was ‘forced’ to apologize for telling the goddamn truth about you lousy ass gays. Vivica Fox was made to apologize as well as Jennifer Holliday. In my blog, “I Will NOT Apologize To Faggots!” I highlighted the truly ludicrous reasons why these worthless assed gays took offense to comments that were not offensive or even aimed at them.

The homophobic accusations came after Fox and some of her dancers were asked if gay guys go to shows during an appearance on “The Breakfast Club.”

“Hell no,” she said. “They dance for women… it’s called the ultimate girls night out.”Vivica Fox.

What the hell did Vivica Fox say that was offensive? That her dancers dance for women because it’s the ultimate girls night out? Are you fucking serious?

Get this in your goddamn stupid, crazy heads, gays! You are NOT girls. You are NOT women. You are NOT ladies no matter how ridiculous you tart yourselves up to try and look like us. You will NEVER be us and the fact that you cannot deal with that shit is on YOU, not on anyone else.

And seriously people, you need to cut that apology shit out because it only emboldens them to ever more heights of lunacy since they are already offended over every trifling remark that is not even about their sorry, hating asses. And yes, I said, “hating” because they HATE on REAL women because they can’t BE REAL women. How sick is that??!!! Yeah, think about it. It is more sick than a motherfucker and this shit is running for president. That fag, Pete Buttigieg, is running on the Democratic ticket for president. And I gotta say, his last name is very apropos.

Not to mention, what was supposedly a gift from god, I cannot look at in the same way because the gays have taken over the rainbow. And so to show just how much havoc they have wreaked, I wrote a poem bemoaning why I can no longer look at a rainbow the same way I used to when I was a child.

Rainbows, Once So Beautiful!

Rainbows, once so beautiful
are now defiled by man.
When I look up at a rainbow
it is as beautiful as a rusted can.

If a man wants a dick all in his ass
then go at it tooth and nail
but did you have to defile such beauty
as you lick the ass of a male?

The dykes are on the loose
chasing rainbow-draped cunts.
With tongues drooling and panting
I don’t want to hear your grunts.

You tarnish the rainbow’s image
with your filthy, nasty ways.
I wish you’d all stayed in the closet,
all you vile and disgusting gays!

But what’s even sicker is that all of this shit; this homosexuality shit is now infecting the Black community thanks to mass incarceration. Black men are incarcerated in record numbers and when they get out of prison, many are bringing AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases to Black females since it has been stated that Black females are now the most AIDS infected group in Amerikkka. Go fucking figure. And so here’s another poem that elicited a lot of attention when the Supreme Court decided that two men and two women could get married. That shit sounds as ridiculous as it looks when taking place.

I Miss The Days When Men Were Men

I miss the days when men were men
but the tables have been turned.
A man is now so feminine,
he wants a bra some woman burned.

Feminine is now quite masculine.
What a topsy-turvy world.
Just thinking of this perversion
only makes me want to hurl.

The claim is that they fought
for civil rights for gays.
And that Blacks should be quite happy
giving the high court’s ruling, praise.

Not so fast, this shit ain’t cute.
Being gay is an orientation.
It is not a civil right
to display your aberration.

What sex act you perform
should not be granted such distinction.
Nor be held up as a victory.
It only leads to man’s extinction.

You cannot procreate your seed
when it’s shoved inside a man.
Nor can a woman bear a child
by engaging in sex with Ann.

You’re on the road to hell,
you deviant queers and freaks.
And as you head for wedded blitz
know that your ass of sulfur reeks.

So come at me demanding an apology, I wish you would. You think your ‘feelings’ are hurt now? You ain’t seen nothing yet! I ain’t the one to play with! Try me! I’m not Wendy Williams. I’m not Vivica Fox. I’m not Jennifer Holliday. If you didn’t know, now you know!

When Confronted With Legislation About A Vasectomy Bill, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz Says, “YIKES!”

 

Ted Cruz does NOT want the government controlling the reproductive organs of men, but he has no problem with the government controlling the reproductive organs of women, hence his railing against abortion when women get pregnant thanks in part to the reproductive organs of men, but it is a case of “Yikes!” when the government proposes vasectomies for men in an effort to control a man’s role in reproduction.

Ted Cruz takes aim at Alabama vasectomy bill: “YIKES!”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took aim at legislation recently introduced in Alabama by a state representative that would, if passed, make it mandatory for certain men to get vasectomies – a bill that comes in response to legislation passed last year that seeks to ban abortion in the state.

“Yikes,” Cruz wrote in response to the bill on Twitter on Sunday morning. “A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything…literally!”

The bill would require men to get a vasectomy after the birth of their third child or when they reach 50 years of age; whichever comes first. Alabama state Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D), introduced the legislation in response to Alabama legislation that prohibits women from seeking and obtaining abortions even in instances of rape and incest. And of course, Sen. Ted Cruz was all FOR the legislation aimed at restrictions on women’s reproductive control over their own bodies, but when it comes to men, well now, that’s a different story. According to Ted Cruz, the government does not have a right to regulate a man’s reproductive system because, uh….well…because…he’s says so.

So you white women who voted for the likes of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, who can grab you by your pussy at any time, and also to the white women who donned pink pussy hats and marched in what you considered to be, a protest against Donald Trump, whom you elected to the presidency, get your pink pussy hats out again and go march in front of Ted Cruz’s office in protest of his obvious double standards when it comes to the government legislating women’s bodies while not having the authority to legislate men’s bodies. These are the worthless, misogynistic shits that you gave birth to and so hop to it.  But you won’t because these very same assholes uphold the system of ‘white supremacy’ from which you benefit. And you will screech and wail about how you should have the right to do to your body what you will, but that screeching and wailing ceases when it may affect the system of white supremacy. You’ll shut the fuck up then.

Also, I have covered this issue before and I am going to do something that I have never done and that is to include an entire blog post here and not just post a link because, FINALLY, someone got the memo.

WHAT ABOUT PLANNED FATHERHOOD?

 

I am going to be a mother
but I am just too young.
The father of my child
just stung me with his tongue.

He told me it was my fault.
Protection was for me to use.
How can I tell my family?
Their love for me, I’ll lose.

Oh where can I turn?
What help is there for me?
I heard about Planned Parenthood,
but will they help me out for free?

What services do they offer?
Should I seek advice from them?
Will they blame me for this shame?
Am I the guilty or the victim?

Answers, I need now
before it is too late.
The man can walk away
and leave me in this state.

Where’s the judgment on his ass?
What about Planned Fatherhood?
It takes two to make a baby!
That should be clearly understood!

I am getting real tired of this double standard bullshit! It would seem that Planned Parenthood is all about the ‘female’ role in the making of a baby because the female is the one whose life is going to be turned upside down no matter what she decides to do with the baby. If she decides to have the baby and she is either underage or single, she is going to have to figure out what to do and society will look at her as the slut who couldn’t keep her legs closed while the man who had a hand in this, as usual, gets to strut away like a peacock, on to the next.

If she decides to get an abortion, this is frowned upon because “Oh my goodness! I am just so self-righteous and the good book(Bible)that is burning up in my sinful hands due to all MY sins, tells me that I should stone this fallen woman, this slutty, whore who is no better than she should be! My stars! Back in my day, sluts weren’t running loose, opening their legs to every Tom, Dick and Harry that wished to crawl between them. We wore chastity belts until marriage! What is this sinful world coming to?”

Yep, that about covers the ‘christians’ view of an unwed mother-to-be. Nothing whatsoever is said about the ‘father’ who most definitely had a hand in the reason why the female is pregnant. No one is planning to defund ‘Planned Fatherhood’ because in reality, ‘Planned Parenthood’ is all about the ‘female’ in the equation and don’t we ALL know it. Planned PARENTHOOD, my ass! Planned MOTHERHOOD is what it’s ALL about!

Oh, there are probably some pamphlets about the ‘male’s role in conception’ in the offices of Planned Parenthood, sitting somewhere collecting dust on a shelf in the basement, but the primary focus is on care for the female if she decides to carry the child to full-term or with help in aborting the ‘fetus’.

And now, we have many a republican blow-hard threatening government shut-downs over de-funding Planned Parenthood, but would the same hell-raising antics be displayed if this was all over an agency called, ‘Planned Fatherhood’ where the male’s reproductive role is the primary focus? Of course not! Those hypocritical conservative bastards would sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up! But women’s rights and agencies that help women with regards to reproduction is always up for grabs and great for capturing headlines and getting the so-called ‘christian right’ all up-in-arms.

Here is an idea republican blow-hards, if you want to stop getting all hypocritically bent-out-of-shape over Planned Parenthood, fetal parts selling, abortions and whatnot, then announce the launch of an historically new concept; that of Planned Fatherhood, placing the emphasis on male contraceptives, male sterilization and male education on birth control and the consequences of going without it. Let’s see how many men line up and head through the doors to take responsibility for their role in the creation of life. Because in here, men don’t get a goddamn free pass, not a bit of it!

http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

Not one man is featured on this site. As usual, contraception or birth control is ALWAYS aimed at the female. Women have come SO far in the year of no lord 2015!

And now that we are all distracted from the REAL issues of child poverty, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass incarceration, a fucked up infrastructure, failed leadership, partisan politics, drone wars, refugee crises caused by U.S., police brutality, Mid East policy fuck-ups, a homeless epidemic, income inequality, low-wage part-time jobs, a shrinking jobs base and a host of other serious issues, we can continue to rail over the funding of Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile, Rome burns.


As you can see, I originally posted this blog in 2015  and here we are, 5 years later, still going around in circles. We are still sitting up listening to and putting up with the double standard bullshit hypocrisy from rich, old white men. They are still dictating to us all just what the hell should happen to our bodies. Regardless of whether or not you believe in a woman’s right to choose, remember this, it does indeed, take two to tango.

Men, get that vasectomy and shut the fuck up! And since Ted Cruz approves of the government  legislating a woman’s rights over her own body, then he should have no problem with the government legislating a man’s rights over his body by mandating vasectomies for men in order to stave off the need for women to seek abortions. If it’s good for the goose, it’s good for the gander.

Time To Celebrate Black History Month AGAIN! Yeah, We Got It Going On!

Black History Holds NO Fame!

Dragged from your native land,
on a floating barge of death.
You built paradise for a thief
who then plundered all the wealth.

Your name was not your own.
You would never again be free.
To know such hate from them,
as they hung you from a tree.

They say that slavery’s over.
Go forth and earn your keep.
And though you labor long,
you’re valued much too cheap.

You were denied so many rights.
And the vote was not for you.
Though many marched and died,
the court bid that adieu.*

Some think you’ve made great strides
in the face of all that’s wrong.
Yet they herd you into prison,
because they hate that you are strong.

Be wary of their smiles,
for they mean you so much harm.
If you’ve a talent, they’ll exploit it.
All over you, they’ll swarm.

They’ll use you and they’ll kill you.
You’re nothing but a thing,
and when your candle’s burned
you’ll feel ole Massa’s sting.

Don’t ever let your guard down,
and it doesn’t pay to trust.
Shield from them your weakness.
Always show them your disgust.

Black history holds no fame.
And it certainly gets no cheer.
Times have never changed.
They still look at you and sneer.

*June 25th 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, removing a critical tool to combat racial discrimination in voting.

Where shall we begin? Let us celebrate the 11% unemployment rate for Black men even though the national unemployment aka jobless rate stands at 3.7% and if your head’s not stuck up your ass, then you know that even that is a damn lie! Break out the champagne Black folks for those of you who can afford a bottle of say, Andre Cold Duck! Clink those plastic cups together and then piss in the wind because it’s all blowing back your way anyway; the shit that keeps hitting the fan, that is.

Next on our celebration list is the shit that is going down in our public education system better known as the ‘school-to-prison pipeline’ if you’re a student of color in these here United States of America where we celebrate Black History Month each and every February. This month is dedicated to showcasing the achievements of Black people in America. We are celebrating each and every single achievement that has not yet occurred but will eventually occur and we are real sure of this happening any day now.

To continue the celebrations, let us look at the child poverty statistics that are sure to impress us during these celebrations of future achievements that we are hell bent on celebrating this month. We are celebrating the fact that ‘child poverty in America is at its highest point in 20 years, putting millions of children at increased risk of injuries, infant mortality, and premature death’. And if that isn’t bad enough, ‘7 million kids still don’t have health insurance’. This is just so worth celebrating, what an achievement! What a dream as opposed to a nightmare. I wonder what that famous man who had a dream, would think of this. I seriously wonder.

But wait! There is more to celebrate this Black History Month! The good news just keeps on coming. ‘Incarceration rate for African-Americans now six times the national average’ is still making headlines among Black prisoners and their mostly white guards and the white slave patrol that arrested them for say, selling loose, un-taxed cigarettes, selling marijuana or crack while completely ignoring the white man that was buying said crack and marijuana from the guilty by birth African-American other wise known as Colored otherwise known as Black otherwise known as felon or prisoner no.1,000,034. White folks, why don’t you just lock up every single Black person at birth? It’ll save you the trouble of doing so later on since many of us will know what it feels like to be shackled just as those we are descended from knew what it felt like. And the beat goes on and we celebrate it.

And ‘here’s the Data That Shows Cops Kill Black People at a Higher Rate Than White People’, now ain’t that a bitch?! Unfortunately, Michael Brown is not here to celebrate this Black History Month with us because he was shot and killed by a cop. Twelve year old Tamir Rice is also not here this year to help us celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop while playing with a toy gun in a park. John Crawford, likewise, is not here to celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop in Wal-Mart while holding a toy gun.  Eric Garner, unfortunately, for him, was selling loose, untaxed cigarettes and that cost him his life and so he will not be joining in the celebrations. Terrance Franklin was shot and killed by cops following a traffic stop and he will not be celebrating ether. Seven year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones was shot  and killed by a cop while she slept and the charge of manslaughter against the cop that shot and killed her was dropped and so, she is not just ‘under-the-weather’, she is underground and therefore, is not able to celebrate this historic month. Let us celebrate on her behalf. Sandra Bland is not here to celebrate with us because she was hanged in a Texas jail cell. So many are not here to witness all of the achievements that we celebrate today that have not as yet occurred. But we are sure that any minute now, we shall achieve….something. Yeah! Wait on it.

Fortunately, I have found yet another statistic that gives us even more of a reason to celebrate Black history month. Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless. We have come so far this February in the year of our Lord 2020, have we not? Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population. Doesn’t that just give you a warm and comfortable, cozy feeling that those homeless people lack? These are achievements that we have here folks! Time to celebrate and to keep the momentum going. Our ancestors would be so proud of where we are today. Don’t you think? Does this not make you aware that BLACK LIVES DO NOT MATTER?!

Now, on the other hand, Tyler Perry will dress up in drag and put some Black folks to work on another Madea movie and Beyoncé will croon about a Halo for Jay-Z and Jay-Z will rap about niggas while DMX will head back to prison for drug possession, get out on probation again and then go right back in for drug possession. Viola Davis will have no problem getting cast as yet another maid after her role in ‘The Help’ and Forest Whitaker is probably all set to play yet another version of someone’s Butler since every one is well aware that us Black folks are so good at bowing and scraping and being subservient to our ‘betters’.

Finally, I’ve given you many reasons to celebrate this month. The reasons are endless and our achievements that we will watch for some time in the future are making life much better for so many of us and that is why we must enjoy this Black History Month. We have no need to march and protest like those Black people in the 1960s did. We are so past that in this here post-racial America. I mean, what we have here is a post-racial America, is it not? But nevertheless, Dr. King would be so proud as would his stalwart, fellow marchers-in-arms at the progress that we have made since his infamous, I Have A Dream speech. We shall overcome! Uh…what I meant to say is that, “We did overcome!” Now like the good little sheep you are, start celebrating all of this shit!! And look ahead to when the REAL achievements will come because surely they must come!

 

Lawsuits Have Been Filed Over Trump Cutting Food Stamp Benefits….AGAIN!

 

I am pretty sure that those lawsuits are from agencies that help feed the poor and hungry and who are most terribly upset that the poor and hungry are going to starve thanks to Donald Trump’s latest round of food stamp benefit cuts. And as we can see, before Trump is finished, the piddling little safety net that was still in place is going to be gone! So let’s now take a look at who is suing the Trump Administration over food stamp benefit cuts and why.

Slashing Food Stamps Hurts The Poor And Their Supermarkets

A coalition of 14 states, New York City and the District of Columbia, have filed a lawsuit challenging the rule. The lawsuit notes that cuts to the $61 billion food stamp program will have a ripple effect on grocery stores.

WHAT????!!!! The lawsuits were not filed on behalf of the millions who may be impacted by Trump’s cuts to the food stamp program, the lawsuits were filed because of the “ripple effect on grocery stores?” Damn the hungry people; children and all, the focus must be on protecting capitalism and in order to do that, keep those food stamps coming because the corporate bottom line is going to suffer. Children suffering from hunger pangs? Who cares? Mothers needing food to eat in order to go out and work to keep a roof over their children’s head? Who cares? The concern is only for the supermarkets that will take a hit over the loss of those food stamp benefits.

Folks, this is the world we live in today and I for one, don’t mind if the world ends today because I have had it with this shit! People can just starve to death! Never mind that, but the corporate bottom line must be protected at all costs.

I have known hunger and may do so again. I have had to go to work with my stomach growling and I was walking to work with the soles of my $2 sneakers all but gone and one toe had pushed its way up out of the top and yet, there I was, walking to work with just a thin jacket on in the dead of winter and I knew that when I got back home, there was no need to open the freezer or the fridge or even the cupboard as there would be nothing in either one for me to eat and I would have to get up the next day and trudge along. And unfortunately, this is the plight for many, even those who don’t live in America.

I just read a blog about hunger and this lady does not even live in America and she has been hungry for some time. Hunger is no laughing matter! Have you seen the price of ‘food’ lately? This is not the time to be cutting food stamp benefits. People are dying for lack of food. If there are so many charities out there, then why are people still so food insecure? One of the reasons is that in order to access food from food shelves, food pantries and the like, one must first fill out applications and get approved. Did you read that? People must get approved before they can take food home. These charities must process applications to make sure that people are poor enough to make use of their food pantries and food banks in order to take food home. I’m not saying that ALL of them are requiring that people fill out applications, but quite a few insist that people go through an approval process before they can take food with them. There is an all out war being waged against the poor and that war is being ramped up with each Administration serving the rich at the expense of the poor. Donald Trump just recently handed a windfall to already wealthy, rich whites in the form of tax cuts and to pay for those tax cuts for the filthy rich, the abject poor must take another hit.

Why don’t you look up from those damn phones and take a look around at what is happening ALL around the world? Everything is going to hell in a hand basket while you sit there and scroll down a damn smartphone screen that’s taken the place of your brains. We don’t need a plague to turn our asses into zombies. We already are zombies, only we are such dumb zombies that we are not stumbling around trying to chomp on brains because no one has any.  And the reason why we have no brains is because for those of us who can afford to put food on the table, that food is poison. It is toxic to our bodies. Even the soil we use, for those of us who are lucky enough to grow our own food, is toxic because the white man has seen to it that no blade of grass, no soil on any continent is worth a damn. We are ALL walking toxin factories thanks to what whites have set in motion that has caused this planet to become a toxic waste dump as opposed to what it was originally, paradise. Everything that we needed to be strong and healthy was right on this planet but because whites were sent here to destroy us and it, this is the result; a toxic waste dump. Look at who is causing ALL the suffering ALL across this planet. Take a good look! And yet, we want to live by their example. Seriously???!!! The rest of us need not have taken up their sorry ass habits. We should have fought back against them with all that we had. And now, it’s damn late to be attempting to reverse the damage that whites have wrought all across this planet on the Innocent.

Everything with whites is ALWAYS all about the bottom line and to hell with anyone and everyone who is not rich and pasty. Who are ALL the billionaires? Who are the ones who can afford to use their billions to launch a presidential campaign just because they long for relevancy and want to derail the outcome of an election? Who is ALWAYS gutting social programs that help those who have been touted as the beneficiaries of those programs when the whites make more use of those programs than anyone else because they make damn sure that we don’t qualify? And yet we are put on display by the whites as the face of social programs when nothing could be further from the truth. I don’t care how brain dead you are, even your brain dead stupid ass should be able to see what the hell’s going down. And for those of you who still claim not to see this shit, the only thing I can do is “Heave A Sigh!”

 

I Heave A Sigh!

I heave a sigh for the hungry children,
who will go without a meal tonight.
I heave a sigh for the sick, old man,
who’ll be dead before morning’s light.

I heave a sigh for those who are jobless.
And for the ones who are out on the street.
I heave a sigh for those who are in cages
and for whom the word freedom, is obsolete.

I heave a sigh for a world in distress
because the needs of the many aren’t met.
I heave a sigh for the broken and forgotten
and for the homeless Vietnam vet.

I heave a sigh because my pen runs dry.
My voice is silenced by a deafening snore.
I heave a sigh because I don’t understand
why we cannot help the weak and the poor.

…..I heave a sigh!!!

Food stamps are being cut AGAIN! The hunger problem in America is about to get even worse as food shelves are already stretched. The programs that help those in need, including children, are being gutted every year and it does not matter if there is a republican or a democrat at the helm of this lopsided, sinking Titanic. The military budget is more important because killing will always remain America’s top priority. And for those who are caught up in a never ending struggle for survival amidst all the lavishness and decadence displayed by the ‘powerful’, who grin at your plight and spit in your face, I heave a sigh and my pen is drained from bemoaning your fate!

…..I heave a sigh!!!

What Was Achieved By All The Marching And Protesting By Dr. King And Others?

 

A few years ago, I wrote a poem about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and that poem elicited some comments that basically intimated that Dr. King and all the others who were part of the Civil Rights struggle actually made no gains, period. Now, we can argue over it all day and all night as to whether or not Dr. King and crew were successful in their endeavors, but one thing I would like you to do is to continue reading and decide for yourself. And I will give Dr. King one thing, he tried….. something. Whether or not it was the right thing? You tell me.

Of Dr. King, We Are Just So Proud!

Of Dr. King, we are just so proud.
That man, he always drew a crowd.
He paved the way to a much brighter day.
His dream is alive in every way.

Tamir Rice is here to tell his story.
And Sandra Bland has no need to ever worry,
that her life will be snuffed out in a cell,
because Dr. King, he rang the freedom bell.

Michael Brown is in college where he belongs.
Eric Garner is in church singing spiritual songs.
Walter Scott is still driving down the street.
Freddie Gray is sitting down to a meal to eat.

They all owe their lives to Dr. King.
He said, “Let freedom ring! Let freedom ring!”
On the mountaintop, he saw through space and time.
And yet, they killed him while he was in his prime.

We thank him for the debt he willingly paid,
and for all the sacrifices he and his family made.
But what we will never know for certain,
is how he would react when they finally raise the curtain,
on a show that is a tragedy of the darkest kind,
and where Blacks are still left so far behind.
This play will not have a happy ending,
for its ending is just like its beginning.

Behold, the face of slavery is still Black.
And as in days of old, we are under attack.
But a man had a dream for which he died.
Was it all for naught? I’ll let you decide!

I want you to take some time to reflect on the question I posed. “Was it all for naught?” If Black people have made so many gains in the decades since the Civil Rights Movement, then where are they? If we as a people have ‘moved’ forward, then where are the results? #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Give me a break! If we as a people had moved, there would be no need for the #BLACKLIVESMATTER Movement, now would there? The incarceration rate for Black men is off the charts. Millions of Black people live in deep poverty and a ridiculously high number of them are Black children. Millions of Black people are jobless, homeless and hungry and lack healthcare. But here we are, about to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. Celebrate what, I ask you? Tell me! What is there to celebrate? Staggering unemployment figures for Black youth and young adults? A homelessness epidemic? Mass incarceration? A school-to-prison pipeline? Out-of-control racist KKKops brutalizing and murdering unarmed Black people? Grand Juries that refuse to hand down indictments on racist thugs with badges? Gun violence in Black communities that are so impoverished as to be likened to 3rd world nation conditions?

And yet the ‘whites’ sit back and gleefully point the finger at what is going down in communities of color and point to how ‘violent they are when they know why. Whites know that this is all done by design, but it is so easy for them to live in their little ‘white bread’ world and hurl invectives and “I told you sos” when ‘whites’ are hell bent on gentrifying neighborhoods that once housed Black people because the suburbs was once the place to be if you were ‘white’. You sit somewhere with your holier-than-thou attitudes as though your shit don’t stink. You shamelessly and callously wish death on a group of people who were not responsible for being dragged to this hellhole you call, America. You strut around like proud peacocks, puffing your chests out and pretending that you’re not rotten filth when you are actually worse than that. And you have the unmitigated gall to pretend to acknowledge Dr. King with your phony ass displays of righteous indignation over the brutal treatment he received at the hands of you ‘whites’. You have the nerve to speak his name, to post his “I Have A Dream” speech as though you ever did a thing to help bring his dream to fruition. You’ve done everything possible to see to it that his dream was never realized and you are not fit to read his name, much less speak it. Why you have not burst into flames upon speaking his name is a complete and utter mystery to me because all that should be left of you is ‘white’ ash!

The above is what I also posted along with the poem and next, I am going to post a comment about this particular post and my response.

I’ve always looked at MLK with curious eye because my parent were both Black Panthers when I was growing up and Dr. King was almost forbidden in my house. I only saw him as an on bent knee begging white people for some table scraps and to please not hit us anymore. Though growing up, I’ve come to understand him a bit better and my only thought now about the man is, “praying has brought Black peoples nothing but dirty knees and empty pockets.”

shelbycourtland’s response:

HLJ, this isn’t so much about me revering Dr. King as it is about exposing the blatant and outrageous hypocrisy of the ‘whites’. They are the very ones who go on and on about Dr. King’s ‘dream’ when it is quite obvious that they gave not a damn for the man nor his dream. They spout useless rhetoric each and every time the holiday in his name comes around and that is all they do. And while they are doing this, the continuation of enslavement of Black people continues, the continuation of the Negro status as that of 3rd class ‘citizen’ continues. We aren’t even tolerated in this shithole. We are incarcerated and murdered and yet the ‘whites’ go on and on about how thankful Blacks should be since we are supposedly living in the ‘greatest nation on earth’. I fucking beg to differ with that assessment. Black people are a people without a country. We are enslaved in a system that is corrupt to its core and is filled with racist filth and we are expected to subjugate ourselves to criminals of the worst kind.

Dr. King was but a tool and he was used to put down any attempt at an insurrection, a rebellion or a revolution. The ‘whites’ condoned the actions of Dr. King because he was their namby-pamby house Negro; the same as Barack Obama and all the rest of the coon head sell-outs that bow and scrape to the ‘white’ motherfuckers and lick their boots clean while scrabbling for their table scraps at the same time. I am not giving any accolades to Dr. King because he was no revolutionary, he was a stooge. My poem is a sarcastic and antonymous portrayal of Dr. King. That is why I stated that because of Dr. King, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Michael Brown and Walter Scott and so many others have him to ‘thank’ for their lives. My point is to also show how far we have NOT come even with these so-called ‘movements’ that are merely fake assed props that are put in place to give Black people the illusion that they are actually doing something constructive to put a stop to the genocide of them by the ‘whites’. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Dr. King was just a figurehead, a prop; complete with suit and tie and bible. He was the ‘white’ mans house nigger and he did a fine of job of spreading the ‘white’ man’s propaganda of telling Black people to go about effecting change, all peaceful like. And when his usefulness was over, they fucking killed him just to show that a gun is aimed at us at ALL times because we are still their property! Fuck ’em!

I thank you for your comment.

And another great comment I thought I should add.

Good post. A lot of us at least have some idea of the real deal with him but too many don’t. They could start looking at what really happened with the march on Washington. They should ask themselves why do we only hear of one person from that era? I also think someone else wrote most of his famous speeches? While he stayed with mostly the same approach, Dr. King had doubts about a lot of what he had said earlier before his death.

How long will we keep marching? Those of us who are marching need to stop. When will we get to the “Dream”?

Is this another white Jesus thing? To be fair, there were black Christians who pretty much can’t be criticized but his approach seemed to be pulled straight from parts of the Bible that even those who believe in the BIble find hard to justify(I myself don’t believe in those passages or the books that contained them).

shelbycourtland’s response:

They can consider Dr. King to have been a figurehead, a Civil Rights leader, a scapegoat or what have you, but his sole purpose was to misdirect Black people’s anger away from fucking shit up but instead focused it on ‘peacefully’ marching down the goddamn street of every pothole filled city in this shithole. You don’t hear the ‘whites’ screaming and jumping up and down about setting aside a day in which to honor Malcolm X. And you won’t! Malcolm X was not going on and on about some ‘peaceful’ this and ‘peaceful’ that. He had some harsh words for those vile ‘white’ shits that have firmly planted their boot on our Black ass and refuse to lift it.

Malcolm X was a revolutionary who believed in violent resistance, he believed in getting things done ‘by any means necessary’. That is why he said, “It’s got to be the ballot or the bullet.” The ballot ain’t worked. And we ALL fucking know what it would take but the revolutionaries of the ’60s are either dead or still locked up and so we just dutifully continue with the useless ass marches and protests with signs dating back 50 years when not a goddamn thing is going to change simply because we are holding up a sign. What has #BLACKLIVESMATTER accomplished? Not a goddamn thing!

Thank you for your comment N.S.

As I have stated before, peruse this content to your heart’s content and then think about the state that Black Amerikkka is in today and you tell me, did ALL of that marching and protesting lead to ANY gains? And if so, how so? Where are they? Black people are more asleep today than than they were in the  60s thanks to dumb ass rap music, pretend beefs among so-called Black celebrities, Youtube madness, Twitter and Facebook mess and the like is endless. There is only moaning and whining coming from Black Amerikkka when Black people do eventually look up and realize how fucked we are that is until another distraction down the pike; another Black Panther Movie or Madea bullshit movie from the likes of Tyler Perry’s faggot ass! That shit, we don’t need. Hell! Damn near half of Black Amerikkka has no idea why today is being ‘celebrated’. Check this shit out!

Just skip to the five minute mark when she says, “The kids are out of school on Monday and we don’t even know why.” Also, her sixteen year old daughter did not even know why she is out of school today. Seriously???!!!! Too busy staring down at shit on a phone, most likely is the reason and the mother is just too dizzy for words.

This is what we have to work with these days and it is quite obvious, that we have nothing to work with. So you tell me, what was it all for? Cluelessness? Ignorance? Gluttony? Youtube channels? Twitter? Facebook?

Black Amerikkka is dealing with rabid racism, gentrification, income inequality, mass incarceration, a school-to-prison pipeline, disparities in healthcare, child poverty, a homeless epidemic, crime infested neighborhoods, drugs and gangs and prostitution that is out-of-control and the list of the like is endless and yet, here we are ‘celebrating’ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. For what? And in less than two weeks, we shall be expected to ‘celebrate ‘Black History Month’. Why? Because I have just described  ‘Black History’ up to present day and so what is there to celebrate? You tell me. I can’t wait.

 

 

And As The Seconds Tick Away Towards The New Year…- A Repost

 

As I raise my flute in drunken glee,
I look upon what was once a live tree.
So concerned with this planet and global warming,
my resolution to do better can wait til morning.

For tonight, I celebrate with friends and acquaintances,
spreading well wishes and exchanging whispered confidences.
The wrongs of this world, for just one night
can wait a little longer for us to do what’s right.

A sick child with no health care will have to hold on
until I open my bleary eyes to greet the new dawn.
The Black man being dragged by the Ku Klux Klan
should have seen them coming, he should have ran.

Of course I care about the people who have addictions
just like I care about my neighbor who can’t afford her prescriptions.
I know about the homeless who have formed a tent city.
But for just this night, champagne will take away my pity.
And as the seconds tick away towards the New Year,
even champagne cannot stop me from shedding another tear.

I wrote this one because as we celebrate the ringing out of the old and in with the new, I cannot help but believe that more misery, cruelty, suffering, chaos, war and all things of horror, will follow us into this new year and beyond, for what will have changed?

As we head to our parties tonight, break out our party favors and drink our champagne toasts at midnight, wish each other a “Happy New Year,” are we really going to think that this year will be any happier than 2019 or 2018 or 2017? What is going to change to get us to actually mean it when we say, “Happy New Year?” It will be just another year of the same because we won’t change. We will continue in our old ways of ignoring those who are less fortunate. We will pretend as though there are not wars being fought just because. We will never for a minute think that we have aided and abetted in the destruction of this planet through our selfish acts as we scream, “Happy New Year To One And All!” If we really meant that, we’d know it because it would show, but when you look around, does it show? Does it look as though we give a damn about the children who go to bed, hungry? Does it look like we give a damn about the homeless? Does it look like we care about those who are in unimaginable pain because they have no health insurance? Does it look like we are going to start doing something to hold our elected representatives accountable for the way they continuously make the working poor pay for the idleness of the rich? Does it look like the ‘new year’ will bring about a change in the human psyche which seems hell bent on self-destruction? If any of you ponder these questions, I already know what the outcome will be. Exactly how you were in 2017, 2018, 2019 is how you will be in 2020 and on and on it will go until they plant you. Because we are always going to wait til tomorrow to ‘do’ better. Just like each and every year, we are bombarded with ads to lose weight and get in shape and some people actually make a resolution to do just that and then after a month, what happens? Back to square one. We’re pathetic!

And so, I will not say, “Happy New Year!” I will merely say, “Welcome to the rest of your lives!” War, misery, homelessness, joblessness, starvation, income inequality, racism, ignorance, selfishness, arrogance, greed, lust, apathy and complacency and your solutions to getting through all of this; heroin, crack, alcohol, weed, mass murder and suicide.

“Welcome, To The Rest Of Your Lives! Cheers!”

Trump To The Friends And Family Of The El Paso, TX And Dayton, OH Mass Shooting Victims, “Mental Illness Killed Your Loved Ones!”

So, according to Donald Trump, white supremacy is a mental illness and to cure white supremacy mental illness, treat it like you would if whites only had affluenza,

1.af·flu·en·za
1.a psychological malaise supposedly affecting wealthy ‘white’ young people, symptoms of which include a lack of motivation, feelings of guilt, and a sense of isolation.

And so now we have white supremacyenza, a psychological malaise affecting racist whites, symptoms of which include posting white nationalist manifestos on Facebook, acquiring massive stock piles of assault rifles, hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition due to the belief that white people constitute a superior race and should therefore dominate society, typically to the exclusion or detriment of other racial and ethnic groups and therefore, all other groups should be targeted for annihilation and so get to shooting.

To cure this affliction, the subject should be given a few therapeutic sessions on a couch, some anti-white supremacy medications, a pat on the head and be released back into society, so suggests Donald Trump.

Trump focuses on combating mental illness over new gun-control measures

He outlined a number of possible steps, including so-called “red-flag laws,” that focus on better identifying mentally ill people who should not be allowed to purchase firearms.

“Mental illness and hatred pull the trigger. Not the gun,” said Trump, who did not take questions from reporters.

Inciting racists and fanning the flames of hatred have no impact on why white males have been going on mass shooting sprees or so Trump would have us believe. He is as usual assuming no responsibility for what he has encouraged with his racist rhetoric. To get re-elected, he has stated that members of hate groups were “good people,” even as their actions led to murder when a member of said group used his car to mow down protesters that resulted in one death in Charlottesville, VA. His racist rhetoric at his rallies has promoted discord among attendees resulting in numerous fights breaking out.

Meanwhile, violence across America escalates to the point whereas in Chicago, a hospital had to go on “on bypass” due to the fact that too many people had gotten shot and the hospital could not take in any more gun shot victims.

Chicago hospital stops accepting patients after trauma center is overwhelmed with shooting victims
Chicago’s Mount Sinai Hospital temporarily stopped accepting patients Sunday morning because they were at capacity following a series of shootings, a hospital official said.

The hospital went “on bypass” in the early morning, said Roberta Rakove, Senior VP for External Affairs.

Hospitals use the term “on bypass” when they stop accepting ambulance runs and those ambulances are diverted to other trauma centers. Mount Sinai Hospital is one of five trauma centers in Chicago.

So while folks were getting shot to death in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, multiple people were getting shot in Chicago to the point whereas one hospital was so overwhelmed with trauma victims that it could accept no more. When are we going to understand that we have a serious problem in America? When will the endless rhetoric about mental illness committing mass murder cease and those like Trump and others who make up the GOP start calling it what it is? When is the lamestream media going to call itself out for helping to perpetuate this whacked shit by sensationalizing it? When are we going to realize that all of this so-called mass surveillance of us is being used for other purposes since it damn sure as hell is not being used to stop mass shootings? With cameras everywhere and with the NSA supposedly spying on our every keystroke, one would think that someone, somewhere would have knowledge about this shit before it takes place. Why is it that white nationalist manifestos posted on Facebook and other so-called social media sites are always found AFTER the shooter has killed his targets? Why are our tax dollars being wasted paying for the Department of Homeland Security, The National Security Agency, The Federal Bureau of Investigation and even the Pentagon since they are doing fuck all about stopping these killers that have posted their intent for ALL the world to see? Those government agencies are not dropping the ball on this shit, they are deliberately letting this shit happen. Why else is the Pentagon claiming that it has launched unmanned surveillance balloons only in an effort to locate drug pushers? Why not use that surveillance shit to monitor hate groups?

Pentagon launching drug surveillance balloons over Midwest

The Pentagon is testing the high-altitude, solar-powered balloons across six states, The Guardian reported on Friday.

The balloons were launched to provide “a persistent surveillance system” for narcotic trafficking and homeland security threats, according to a filing with the Federal Communications Commission.

So, while white nationalists are online posting white nationalist manifestos that reveal that they have amassed a shitload of weapons and are about to shoot up some folks, the massive surveillance system installed by the Pentagon is only aimed at locating “narcotic traffickers?” Seriously???!!! They had that shit up in the Midwest while dude was in the Midwest shooting up people in Dayton, OH and they didn’t see dude with a gun since their spy shit can carry sensors and communication gear capable of detecting every vehicle in motion in a 25-mile range beneath the balloon, but cannot detect a guy carrying a high-powered assault weapon? I demand my goddamn tax money back that paid for that shit!

Meanwhile a cousin of two victims who were shot dead in Dayton, OH has a message for Donald “mental illness killed your cousins” Trump!

Unfortunately, his message falls on deaf ears and is only good for soundbites. And soon, if the stock market continues to free fall thanks to Chinese tariffs, even this will no longer be news.

A person who wishes to remain anonymous asked me to post a poem that I wrote and though I had posted that poem for other reasons, they thought that it was fitting for what is going down because people are now extra fearful over going about their daily lives what with hate being spewed, left and right from the halls of congress and especially from the WhiteRight House. I don’t think any poem is going to help matters in this country as things have gone beyond crazy and there will never be anything to approach rationality. However, I will post the poem.

Fear Is Not A Halloween Mask!

Fear is not a Halloween mask,
nor is it a walk through a graveyard.
Fear is waking up behind a dumpster
knowing that you can never let down your guard.

Fear is not ghosts and ghouls in fiction books,
nor is it a jack-o’-lantern’s evil grin.
Fear is having a pain in your side
and a bullet mark on your skin.

Fear is not a witch riding on a broom,
nor is it a cauldron boiling hot.
Fear is looking into the eyes of a killer
right before you’re about to get shot.

Fear is not a vampire biting on a neck,
nor is it a movie about a Nightmare On Elm Street.
Fear is the life you live of desperation,
hopelessness, misery and defeat.

No, we don’t need Halloween
to bring out the fear in our lives.
All we need do is live another day
to know real fear and why it thrives.

So no, we don’t need Halloween to bring out the fear in our lives. All we need do is face another day to know real fear and why it thrives. It thrives because hate thrives. That hate is meant to induce fear. And hate thrives because there are those who incite others to act out on their hate, whether it is to get elected or re-elected or to promote an agenda of an ‘all white Amerikkka’ or for some other reason. Fear is a real part of our lives, the fear of just going to the store to shop for back-to-school items and realizing that anyone can be carrying a high-powered assault weapon ready to aim it at us because Americans are armed to the teeth. The calls for gun control are too little, too late because as I have already stated, Americans are armed to the teeth. And now people are beginning to fear ‘living’ since it is quite clear that hatred kills and hatred is everywhere!

Welcome to AmeriKKKA! Why would you want to come here??!!

Because Your Ass Is White! A Re-post

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not Bloody Likely!

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not bloody likely!

War Is Always Such A Blessing!

War is always such a blessing
It never is distressing or depressing.
I know all too well that this is true.
War has been good for me and you.

You proudly give your lives up for the rich.
For us, life never is a bitch.
In a blaze of glory, you go out.
And really, that’s what it’s all about.

The drone operators are so brave
as they send little children to their grave.
Since the world has become a battleground,
the drums of war make a lovely throbbing sound.

Teach your sons and your daughters about their duty.
And one day, when they are dead, we’ll make a movie.
It will honor their brave and noble deeds.
The wounded, we shall see to all their needs.

Through war, we bring peace unto this earth.
And though you break out in dubious peals of mirth,
the last laugh will always be on you,
for none of what is written is ever true.

When we put a lethal weapon in your hand,
and send you to die in a foreign land,
your life means nothing, you should know,
but you never give pause, you just go.

War is not only just a blessing,
to us, it is also quite refreshing,
that you are so willingly prostituted,
and it’s all because you are just too stupid,
to understand that if it were not for you,
no drone would ever strike on cue!

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

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

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

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

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold, Please!”

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

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

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

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

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

A Letter To My Mother On Her 77th Birthday! Happy Birthday Mother

 

Happy Birthday Mother!

Yes, you brought me into this world;
a squalling little Black baby girl.
You belittled everything I ever did
and you beat me for nothing when I was a kid.

You want me to honor, love and respect you
when what I did was from you, take my cue.
I have never known what love is and I never will.
Not one tear for love will my eyes ever spill.

I’ve been called cold, callous and cruel,
but never have I been called, “love’s favorite fool.”
I know that this should be all about your day,
and it is in its own strange and morbid way.

There is just something that needs saying
because in this town where you live, I’m not staying.
I have come running every time you’ve ever called
and listened to each admonishment on my character, you’ve drawled.

That stops here and now because I don’t need you anymore.
I never really did but I’ve just got to settle the score.
When you talked about me to your acquaintances, that hurt.
But knowing what you are mother, I’m an expert.

I’ve watched you down through the years
send people packing with words sharper than shears.
I’ve listened to you drone on about how great you are
when you are too evil and wicked for hell by far.

You’ve got foul names for everyone you ever meet.
The language you use, the derogatory names, you bleat
to anyone who will come within your reach.
You sit on your ass and search for an invective to screech.

Then you have the nerve to wonder why you sit home alone
and that to this very day, there’s nothing for you to atone.
But your day is coming mother. It may not be here yet,
but then again, you may already be paying your debt.

Your favorite one of us died from drugs years ago
and the man you couldn’t leave hated your ass from the get-go.
Even his friends said he died to get away from you
and this I can believe because I’d do the same thing too.

So sit in your big falling down house and think,
think of all the reasons why you should take to drink.
Believe that you are good and that all others are at fault
And you’ll still deny your evilness when they lower you in that vault.

And lower you they will mother, for we must all go that route.
But don’t you think for one second that your ‘goodness’, I will tout.
You are evil personified and though I may drop dead first,
at least I’ll have the pleasure of knowing that your ass is accursed.

You will lie beside a man who hated you to the end.
Your youngest died years ago and she was a dope fiend.
And yet you blame us for problems we never placed at your door
even though you share the blame because we are what you bore!

I am going to attempt to find the words to convey just what emotions you evoke in me mother; hate, disgust, loathing and yes…pity, for you are so despicable, nasty and hateful that no one wants to come around you and I actually pity you. I spent so many years trying to gain affection from you that was never yours to give because you hate yourself. You loathe yourself for why else would you stay with a man who, when you were pregnant with me, your first baby, threw you a quarter when you told him you were hungry and he said, upon throwing you a quarter, “Here, I wouldn’t want to see a dog hungry.” And yet you thought so little of yourself that not only did you continue to lie with that slug, you brought two more children into this world to be condemned to live with two people who hated each other. We learned to hate as well.

I used to think that the house we lived in was haunted because all of a sudden, everyone inside it would go the fuck off and get to cussing each other out for no apparent reason. I watched on so many occasions, that sperm donor we were supposed to call, “Dad,” come in and beat your ass! Every weekend it was, wasn’t it mother? And what did you do? Why you went to the police station, pressed charges and three days later, your husband…our father was back inside the house. And it was going to be just a matter of time before it happened again and again and again. And yet, you expected us to grow into healthy, mentally strong adults when we had no guidance whatsoever from the likes of you and our sperm donor dad. I sit somewhere posting poems for a sister who you showered with whatever your brand of ‘affection’ can be called simply because she was lighter than myself and my other sister. I remember you making us go to bed when the sun was still out in the summer just because dad hadn’t come home from work and you knew where he was. Like that was our fault. You would get us up in the middle of the night and take us to illegal ‘nip’ joints that sold bootleg liquor just because you saw dad’s car parked there. Small children we were and in our nightclothes and yet you told us to “Go in and find your daddy!” You knew what would happen when we did because any attention from him was better than no attention from him. You were mentally ill then and you still are. We just didn’t know it. We longed for you to leave. We’d have been better off if you had. But no, you had to continue to tell anyone who would listen just how put upon you were, just how long suffering you were. Oh, the pity parties you threw. How I hate you! And though so many of your ‘acquaintances’ have dropped dead, there you still sit, in your misery and hatefulness and spitefulness, you manipulative control freak. The saying is, “You can’t kill the devil!” And ‘they’ must be right because you’re still sitting above ground. The devil doesn’t even want your foul ass and no wonder!

Well mother, I could continue in this vein, but you know what you’ve done. I needn’t display ALL of what you think are your dirty little secrets. But newsflash mother! No one has ever bought that bullshit! No one! So save it! That is why no one comes around you anymore because they don’t want to hear you laud yourself to all and sundry when everyone knows what a miserable piece of shit you really are. Deal with what you are and come to terms with it. The rest of us have. And so with that having been said, “Go to hell mother!” oh and, “Happy Birthday!”
