George Floyd, We Failed You!

George Floyd, We Failed You!

 

George Floyd, we failed you.
You sighed and then went still.
We also failed Tamir Rice,
and all the rest on their list to kill.

Poor Michael Brown lay in the sun,
but his body cooled so fast.
And Trayvon’s ghost still roams the night,
for being Black, he was harassed.

Eric Garner, we failed you too.
What is there left to say?
They choked the life right out of you.
And no one was made to pay.

Oh we get upset and burn some things,
and then we quickly get over the pain.
They call us all “bad thugs,”
but why you are dead, they can’t explain.

They always blame the victim,
for acting out of rage
“Our anger should be doused!”
So says the wise old sage.

Something’s wrong with that old sage,
He does not speak the truth.
A man is dead who did no wrong.
He was buried while in his youth.

Twelve, eighteen and twenty-two,
and on and on it goes.
These are the average ages
of Black bodies laid out in rows.

The funerals never stop.
And the buckets of tears are shed.
The lines are out the door,
but no one says what needs to be said.

Peace will never be ours to know
in this country built by slaves.
When have they ever cared for us,
these primates out of caves?

Never think the day will come
when they’ll stop the killing spree.
The time is now for you to act!
You are a slave, you are not free!

In Minnesota, where protests began this week after the death of Mr. Floyd in Minneapolis police custody Monday, Gov. Tim Walz pleaded with residents to obey an 8 p.m. curfew. Mr. Walz said he was fully mobilizing the state’s National Guard after a night of rioting and violence, leaving open the possibility of requesting federal troops; forces from other states had also been readied to deploy to Minnesota.

“Gov. Tim Walz pleaded with residents to OBEY an 8 p.m. curfew.”

 

Obey! Obey! Obey! That is what the fuck we have been doing for over 400 years in this shithole; obeying the fucking white man! Our ancestors heard that same shit from slave owners. “Slaves obey your masters!” “Til that land!” “Grow that crop!” “Pick that cotton!” “Build the White House!” “Clean my clothes!” “Get on your knees wench!”

The whites even claim that shit in their fucking BUYBULL. “Slaves obey your master!” But who were MADE to be slaves in Amerikkka? Who are the descendants of slaves in Amerikkka? We are! George Floyd was a descendant of slaves in Amerikkka! And look what the fuck they did to him; the same as what they intend to do to us all. You have only to look at the history of this shithole to see that the whites have no intentions of ever letting us forget that we are still SLAVES! George Floyd is not the only Black man to have had to plead for his life to a white piece of shit that was put in a uniform for the express purpose of killing us. Eric Garner was not the first and George Floyd will not be the last.

And yet that piece of filthy, racist, bottom feeding, scum sucking slime that sits his debased, engorged ass inside the White House had the unmitigated gall to call us “THUGS!” when his ass is the biggest damn thug of all, along with those who wear badges and uniforms throughout this shithole and who are also stationed all across this godforsaken planet, fucking people up just because they can. Donald Trump has said that white supremacists are “good people.” Donald Trump also stated that the whites who went to the state capitol in Michigan with assault rifles were just tired of being in quarantine and should have the right to get haircuts.” But let that have been some Black men toting guns around town and showing up at state capitols demanding to be let out of quarantine and their Black asses would have been shot so full of bullets, they’d ALL have looked like Swiss cheese on a slab in the morgue and don’t you ALL fucking know this! No National Guard was called out on those hate groups that took guns and rifles to the state capitol in Michigan. No curfew was placed on them. Why is that? The president condoned that shit, but let Black people have a problem with getting murdered for no goddamn reason by dirty, racist kkkops and we’re the “THUGS?” Fucking seriously???? Look at this shit in the video! You know as well as I do what would have happened to them if they had been Black! They’d ALL be dead; riddled with bullets from SWAT teams from ALL over this shithole! The laws that the whites put on the books don’t apply to them, they fucking apply ONLY to us! This shithole should still be on FIRE from when Michael Brown was shot and killed and his body lay out in the blazing sun, uncovered for hours! This shithole should have been ablaze up til now! Look at the blatant hypocrisy! Look at the blatant and outrageous racism and hatred directed at us for having the audacity to have had our ancestors dragged over here by the ancestors of the vile shits that are still murdering us to this day for something their ancestors put into play! FUCK.THEM.ALL.

Look at that shit and you tell me that Black people could have gotten away with doing that shit! I fucking dare you! George Floyd was doing nothing more than trying to purchase items in a corner store and for that, he was publicly lynched. The man did not even have a gun on him. Eric Garner was standing on a New York City Street armed with just some loose cigarettes when he was choked to death over cigarettes. Tamir Rice was playing with a toy gun in a park and was murdered two seconds after kops showed up. Aiyana Stanley Jones was sleeping in her bed when she was shot in the head by thugs in blue uniforms. Breonna Taylor was asleep in her bed when she was shot 8 times and murdered by thugs in blue uniforms. Sandra Bland was hanged in Texas jail cell because she failed to use the proper turn signal. John Crawford was murdered by thugs in blue uniforms because he was holding a toy gun inside a Walmart. Walter Scott was murdered by thugs in blue because he owed child support. Michael Brown was murdered by thugs in blue because he was suspected of stealing cigars. Jamar Clark was murdered by thugs in blue because of a traffic stop. Philando Castile was murdered by thugs in blue because he was merely OBEYING the order to produce his identification. Freddie Gray was minding his business on a Baltimore street and was murdered by thugs in blue uniforms for merely talking with acquaintances. Amadou Diallo was shot 41 times by those thugs in blue uniforms for merely trying to enter his home. Botham Shem Jean was murdered by a thug in a blue uniform for being suspected of burglarizing his own apartment. Rumain Brisbon was shot to death by thugs in blue uniforms because he was carrying his prescriptions. Akai Gurley was shot by thugs in blue uniforms in a dark hallway in November of 2014 and as of today, no one knows why or has been arrested for his murder. Kajieme Powell was shot and killed by thugs in blue uniforms for allegedly stealing an energy drink, the kkkops lied on him and said that he threatened them when witnesses said the man’s hands were by his side. As of today, no one is in prison for murdering him.

Ezell Ford was lying down when he was shot dead by thugs in blue uniforms and as of today, no one is sitting inside a prison cell for murdering him. Dante Parker was tasered to death by thugs in blue uniforms and as of today, no one is in custody for murdering him. Thugs in blue uniforms claimed that Tyree Woodson smuggled a gun inside a police station and used it to commit suicide. Yeah, that makes perfect sense. Those thugs in blue uniforms claim that Victor White killed himself while handcuffed inside a police car. Yeah, that also makes perfect sense. Yvette Smith was shot by police as she opened the door to them following a domestic disturbance call. The thugs in blue lied on her and said she had a gun. She did not and as of yet, no one is in custody for murdering her. McKenzie Cochran was also choked to death by thugs in uniform and as of yet, no one is in custody for murdering him. Jordan Baker was unarmed when he was shot dead by thugs in blue and as of yet, no one is in custody for murdering him. I could keep this going all damn day long, but the point should be well made; those thugs in blue uniforms are killing Black people because ALL other whites are behind them doing so. Those thugs in kop uniforms have relatives and some of those relatives are standing on the street right now pretending sympathy and empathy for what is going down when they are just as guilty as those they protect by their deafening silence over their racism!

American descendants of slavery, do NOT be fooled by the whites who are now pretending that they give a good goddamn over the murder of George Floyd by racist kops! This shit has been going down since forever and when did ANY whites give a damn enough to call for that shit to cease? Make no mistake, the only reason whites are out there trying to be seen on the streets is because they are out of a job. They are using our protests to fuck shit up because that’s what whites do! They cower behind someone else to do their dirt and then their dirt gets blamed on someone else; namely us.

Those depraved, pasty faced demons are not in our corner. They have never been in our corner and they never will be in our corner. The system of white supremacy is upheld by them because in order for white supremacy to reign, there must be a certain segment of the population for them to ‘lord’ it over and that would be us. When the whites’ shit ain’t somewhere fucked up, you don’t hear a peep from those skank motherfuckers, but now, all of a sudden, they’re out there fucking shit up. It’s because their shit is fucked up! We are not the only ones who are filling out unemployment applications. Those whites are sitting somewhere in line, when they’re not smashing windows out, waiting on some free food from the food bank, as well. Don’t let those white faces in the crowds fool you! They are our mortal enemy and shall forever remain so! Keep your goddamn distance from them as they mean you much harm!

 

 

 

Know Your Enemy!

They make the rules for you to obey.
They hold the cards because they’ve got it that way.

They don’t play fair and they never will.
They break their own rules, but it’s you they kill.

They gave you a number and they gave you a name.
They sold your body and they did it without shame.

They made you a slave for you to clean up their mess.
They destroy your home and they say its progress.

They take your culture and they turn a profit.
They have you bowing and worshiping their prophet.

They try to steal everything you are.
They rule over you and they go too far.

They judge you and they say that’s fair.
They fill your days and your nights with despair.

They will always be your enemy number one.
They hate the beautiful dark ones kissed by the sun.

So yeah, you remember who initiated GENTRIFICATION! You remember who rendered you HOMELESS. You remember why your children go to bed in a homeless shelter. You remember why you are always the last hired and the first fired. You remember who the faces of the mass incarcerated are. You remember who the faces of the school-to-prison pipeline are. You remember why Black people have no real wealth. You remember who bulldozed our homes and turned them into freeways. You remember who murdered those in the Black Panther Party because they refused to believe that there were some “good whites.” You remember that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., tried that PEACEFUL shit and what did it get him? An assassin’s bullet aimed at him by the white establishment. You remember ALL of this shit and then turn around and look at that white piece of shit that’s shouting, “No justice, no peace!” and you tell them to get the fuck out of your face with their racist bullshit! Whites DON’T change. They are exact replicas of those that dragged our ancestors over here for if not, would we still be dying at their hands, just because, in the year 2020? You know the answer to that!

That THUG In The White House Has The Unmitigated Gall To Call Those Protesting The Death Of George Floyd, Thugs! Seriously??!!!

The draft-dodger-in-chief and the world’s number one THUG had the audacity to take to Twitter and post this!

There would be NO need for a “memory of George Floyd” if those THUGS in blue uniforms had not killed the man for no goddamn reason other than the fact that the system of white supremacy upholds that shit and Donald ‘THUG’ Trump embodies that vicious and brutal system of white supremacy and so how dare his depraved, racist ass speak on who are thugs when there could be no greater thug on this planet than this entire piece of shit, racist shithole called, Amerikkka!

I am fed the fuck up with whites telling us that we have to go about remembering our dead, PEACEFULLY! Of course the whites want our asses to be peaceful because that way they can continue to operate their fucking businesses and the same with those immigrants whom they allowed to come here and climb on top of us because make no mistake, the business owner of Cup Foods that called the Klan on George Floyd was NOT an American descendant of slavery, but was in fact someone whom the whites had welcomed over here from elsewhere. Since there is mosque located on the ground floor of Cup Foods, more than likely, the owner of Cup Foods is probably from the Middle East somewhere and they hate our guts as well. They don’t even associate with American descendants of slavery.

I just looked up the owner of Cup Foods and voila! I was right. The owner is Mahmod Abumayaleh, who stated that many times customers come in with counterfeit money and don’t even know it’s counterfeit. He stated that if he had been in his convenience store at the time George Floyd was in there, the police would not have been called. And so I guess that it just wasn’t George Floyd’s lucky day in that Mahmod Abumayaleh was not there to tell the clerk that there was no need for police involvement, however, that is cold comfort to George Floyd since he is cold and lying on a coroner’s slab in the morgue having an autopsy performed on him so that more lies can come out as to how he died. I am pretty sure that we are going to be told that George Floyd was already dead BEFORE Officer Klan Chauvin even placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck. I mean, they’ve told countless lies already as to what occurred, in that George Floyd resisted arrest and had to be manhandled. Well, another store owner handed over a video that shows just the opposite of the kops’ lies.

And even with knowing that the kops have already begun with the lies, people who look like George Floyd should just continue to march, peacefully through the streets at allotted times and on allotted days until the white man tells them, that’s enough? Seriously??!!! They’d better not ground capitalism to a halt especially since Donald Trump just ordered the reopening of this vile shithole that coronavirus had put on lockdown.

So what??!! A goddamn AutoZone was burned to the ground. So what??!! A new apartment building was burned to the ground; those damn buildings are insured and so the rebuilding can start right away. There is no ‘rebuilding’ of George Floyd. There is no amount of insurance that can bring George Floyd back to life. And how BIG of the owner of Cup Foods to state that he “has offered to pay for Floyd’s funeral expenses.”

But as of yet, no charges have been filed against ANY of the THUGS IN BLUE UNIFORMS that took the life of George Floyd. I see, Donald Trump did NOT call those THUGS exactly what they are, GOVERNMENT SANCTIONED THUGS, and he won’t. We are to sit back and twiddle our thumbs and wait on the slow ass process of the criminal injustice system to do not a goddamn thing! The criminal injustice system is quick to dish out punishment and death to us, but when their no account asses have been found to do some filthy, dirty ass, horrendous shit, we are to sit and wait for the slow ass cogs of the law to start turning. To hell with that shit!

I have posted blog after blog after blog after blog about what American descendants of slavery have to go through in Minneapolis, MN. Every single group of immigrants, even illegal ones crawls over here and climbs right on top of us, just as they do everywhere else in this shithole built by our ancestors while we suffer abject poverty, homelessness, hunger and get shot dead or choked to death by dirty ass racist kops every goddamn day! Enough is a fucking nough!

AGAIN, as long as American descendants of slavery just accept our plight and accept us getting murdered, daily and accept having whites call the kops on us because they refuse to leash their dog or because they don’t like us having a barbecue or because they don’t want to see us taking a nap in the common area of a college dorm that we are paying tuition at or because they don’t like to see us in the pool or because they don’t like to see us doing our job of inspecting homes for fire codes and the goddamn list of the like is endless, everything is cool. But the minute we start fucking shit up, that’s when thugs like Trump get to talking about shooting us down like animals because some goddamn no account businesses are getting fucked up! TO.HELL.WITH.THOSE.GODDAMN.BUSINESSES.PERIOD. I wish the fuck I was in Minneapolis because damn it if I would take the shit lying down. Fuck you whites who sit back on your asses and watch this shit go down and look the other way or talk about how ‘violent’ the protesters are when you say nothing about how depraved, blood thirsty and racist you and those who look like you are. You are those kops that did that to George Floyd and so fuck each and every single one of you! I’m not beholden to any of you motherfuckers for shit!

I am glad Metro Transit had to shut the bus service and the light rail down. I am damn glad that 24 Target stores had to close their goddamn doors. I am glad that shit is happening because the only thing that gets the attention of the whites is when their shit is affected; when their fucking businesses are dealt with. And the infuriated protesters have been dealing with that shit!

Over four hundred years of rage is raging on the streets of cities in states all across this fucked up country and I just wish that shit would continue into perpetuity because that is what needs to happen. Damn some goddamn peaceful protesting shit! Does it look like we get any goddamn peace from you filthy ass, debased, savage, vicious, murdering white devils? Hell fucking no! And so why should we continue to march down the goddamn street doing the same thing we’ve been doing for countless decades? Ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., what peaceful protesting gets you. Oh, he can’t answer you because the government, backed by THUGS like Trump had him assassinated. You could not get more ‘peaceful’ and ‘dreamlike’ than Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and still you lousy, motherfucking whites killed him and yet you expect us to continue in that vein? Not bloody likely, as you’ve seen for the last few days. Like I stated before, I just wish the protesters would continue despite Trump’s vile threats. And if a Black person had stated what Trump did, their fucking tweet would have long since disappeared and don’t we ALL fucking know this. Double fucking standards much? I’m damned tired of the shit we have to face every single day over something that is not our fault. We did NOT drag our asses over here. We did NOT immigrate here. That shit is not on us or our ancestors and you pasty assed motherfucking whites know who that shit is on, but yet you blame us, day in and day out for what YOUR goddamn worthless, lazy, rotten ass ancestors put into play. We are fucking tired of being recorded dying on the mean streets of this shithole and told to “go about effecting change, PEACEFULLY!” Shove that shit up your pasty assholes, whites! It’s about time you got a taste of your own goddamn foul ass medicine!

 

AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN!

We dance this dance again,
so move over Eric Garner.
A new video is in town;
another Black man is a goner.

March again and protest.
Where is justice? Where is peace?
There is no hint of either.
Sit down! This shit won’t cease!

Paste another face on a shirt.
Go out and scream your pain.
Blow dust off an old poster.
Let your tears blend with the rain.

Yes, here we go again.
The same writing is on the wall.
Nothing much has changed.
Black lives matter to none at all.

You really can’t see the truth?
Seriously, must you be so dense,
to think that you can change
what has never made any sense?

Our bodies don’t mean shit
to the ones you protest to.
We’ve never, ever mattered
and you know that this is true.

But still, you beg them to care.
You plead to be left alone.
They’ll walk with you for a day
And then, you are on your own.

You see, we are here on sufferance,
and have overstayed no welcome,
that was never extended to us.
We’re just an object for their venom.

Now, protest all day long.
Take it to the streets.
Stand shoulder to shoulder,
with those who wear the sheets.

Give it another month or two,
and you’ll be doing this yet again;
the very definition of crazy,
expecting justice from white men.

We Is Dead Meat To Them!

Alton Sterling, he bit the dust,
down in ole Baton Rouge.
He weren’t looking for no whores
of the like in “Moulin Rouge.”

I hear he was selling CDs,
trying to become a businessman.
But just like Eric Garner,
he needed another plan.

And now, another gentle giant
was felled by the slave patrol.
You have got to understand
that the white man is in control.

So, pick up your protest sign,
and get to marching down the street.
I know your shoes are worn out
as is your tired and aching feet.

But this is how you effect change,
like they did in Dr. King’s day.
Just ask him how that worked.
Damn! He can’t talk no way!

Dr. King was all peaceful like
as he took to the streets of hell.
He said, “I gots me a dream
and they shot him dead as well.

Oh, but things is different now.
They let you riot and go berserk
but then they say, “Alright, you’re done!”
And around your neck, that chain, they jerk!

We’re all Massa’s boys and girls.
We sing and we dance for him.
But if we got no talent at all,
then we is dead meat to them.

I wrote those two poems in 2015 and 2016 and yet they still apply today. Tell me, what the fuck has changed? But yeah! We are supposed to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up about the continuation of this shit! I don’t blame the protesters for going the fuck off. I just wish I was there with them. I wish the shit that they are doing, they’d NEVER stop doing it, but alas, my wish is in vain because this has ALL happened so many times before and it will happen again.

And as usual, when Black people go the fuck off and with GOOD GODDAMN REASON, we are always labeled, “THUGS” by the white establishment. This is what ‘our’ so called, ‘president’ thinks of American descendants of slavery. But when white males go on killing sprees, they are merely labeled, “mentally ill.” And if the Muslims get to fucking shit up because they get goddamn tired of the shit done to them by the whites, they are labeled, “terrorists!” Oh, the hypocrisy and double standards are glaringly obvious. The biggest THUGS and criminals and terrorists on this goddamn planet are WHITES and you fuckers are indeed, insane, but your insanity, you gladly embrace; fucking deranged sociopaths!

“Go rot in hell Trump! and take ALL white motherfuckers with you!”

 

 

 

 

 

As Usual, Black People Have To Show How It’s Done By Walking Off The Job At Amazon

White folks want to always drone on and on about how they take the initiative in order to get things done. Oh you take the initiative alright when it comes to fucking up our lives while we have to take the initiative to fight against you for our right to even exist in this shithole called, Amerikkka. But it is mostly Black people who are having to fight for their right to exist while working at Amazon warehouses where they are expected to fulfill NON-ESSENTIAL orders with many of their co-workers falling ill with coronavirus.

Michigan Amazon workers walk off the job as 3rd coronavirus case confirmed at facility

 

Amazon workers at the distribution center in Romulus, Michigan, walked off their jobs Wednesday at noon in response to the company’s failure to protect the health of its employees amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Recently, two positive cases of coronavirus have been found at the DTW1 fulfillment center and a third was confirmed early Wednesday morning.

Mario Crippen, a leader of the walkout and a worker at the DTW1 fulfillment center, took to the microphone and said the company should not continue to sell non-essential items. However, many essential items are out of stock.

So let me get this straight, Amazon is not making those workers continue to put themselves and their families at risk by working to sell ‘essential’ items, they are keeping those workers on the warehouse floor to send lazy ass motherfuckers some stupid shit that could wait. More than likely those workers’ lives are on the line over sending out nail polish, games, toys and other shit of the like for the ‘shelter in place’ crowd to entertain themselves and their little hellions. I would walk the fuck out too!

How in the world can Amazon state that it is doing everything possible to make sure that its employees are protected and working in a safe environment when not one, not two, but three employees all working at the same facility have tested positive for COVID-19? Spouting useless rhetoric from a form letter does nothing when the health and safety of workers are meaningless to employers as is the case with Amazon.

And AGAIN, I reiterate as I’ve done multiple times, I have NEVER in my life ordered a goddamn thing from Amazon and I never will. I don’t give a damn if I have to go around butt ass naked, never will I encourage the flagrant abuse and contempt for those who must work in an Amazon warehouse by purchasing a goddamn thing from Amazon. But apparently, the rest of this world is filled with brain dead, lazy ass motherfuckers who could care less about anyone so long as their fucking games, toys, nail polish and other stupid shit is heading out of Amazon warehouses and if they contain coronavirus, shut the fuck up! You asked for this shit and now you’re going to get it because it is quite obvious that Amazon doesn’t give a fuck about its customers because those sick employees ‘laid hands’ on those products that are coming to your door via a delivery driver who has touched a package that also probably contains coronavirus and so the spread of this contagion continues.

When will you stupid dumb fucks ever wake up from your hypnotic stupor and get with the program that Amazon workers are not going to be the only ones impacted? When you order shit, that shit you order has the potential to be carrying an extremely lethal contagion and despite what those in the medical field are recommending, I have seen plenty of people touch shit and then touch their faces. Sometimes, it is just a reflex action since some people have been doing that for too damn long and can’t stop now.

But as usual, I digress, there is picture after picture of American descendants of slaves taking the initiative to try and take care of their health and those of their loved ones by refusing to put themselves and their families at risk despite the obvious financial consequences they face. While the whites are running for the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts, Black people are expected to still stand somewhere in a warehouse next to the coronavirus sick just so that they can send out your fucking games and toys for your brats, is that about right? I would ask how do you whites sleep at night, but I know how you can sleep at night. In order for something like this to keep you up, you must first have to have a conscience, a heart, empathy, compassion, a moral compass and humanity and those are ALL the things you whites lack, down to the last one of you. And so what can I expect but what I see from you since I know that you are the most cold sludged (you don’t have blood) parasites ever to slither and crawl across this planet and that is why I don’t have a problem calling you debased rejects from who the hell knows where whatever I damn well please since nothing I could say could hurt your feelings because you must first have feelings in order for them to be hurt and you have none!

Black folks otherwise known as American descendants of slaves, I beg of you to stand in solidarity with one another through these tough times. I know how  tough it is. I know that things are bad for us. Hell! They’ve always been bad for us because just like I read earlier today, “when Amerikkka catches a cold, we catch pneumonia.” That shit is so goddamn true, it ain’t even funny. Please, I beseech you to hang in there. Hold tight to one another, help whenever you can and like everything else that’s been thrown at us, we have managed to get through it. We have always been the face of poverty, strife, suffering, homelessness, hunger, incarceration, drug addiction because the whites would have it no other way, but also remember that through it all, we are still here. Though many of us have fallen, many who paved the way for us to be here today, suffered hell on earth as well. We can but continue to struggle on in the face of hatred from an insane enemy the world will never have firsthand knowledge of as we do. This world’s people only get a taste of the sheer hell that these rabid beasts called, whites’ visit on us. We get the shit, up close and personal.

Finally, though we flounder and some of us will fall there will also be those of us who survive just like we always do and so stand proudly on that strike line. Refuse to be the face of coronavirus, if you can help it. Just like one of you said in the video, you are not the Red Cross, you are not a hero and so therefore, you are not obligated to stand somewhere on a warehouse floor and contract a killer virus just so that you can send some damn nail polish and toys to some parasite that wants you dead anyway. You are not expendable. You are not going to endanger your health and safety and that of your family members for multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos’ ass and those filthy ass whites and some dumb Black folks that helped him get to that status. He nor they are risking their lives on warehouse floors to get non-essential items out and neither should you. Tell them ALL to “Go straight to hell!” Those motherfuckers can just do without, we have to. And fuck all y’all motherfuckers out there that love all up and down on some damn Amazon and act like nothing existed before that goddamn bullshit. You’re all pathetic worms for jumping on the goddamn Amazon bandwagon. Too bad, logic and thought left the building and its place, we now have, apathy, complacency and laziness. More’s the goddamn pity.

This poem is for MY Black folks out there and you know who you are!

When You Get Tired….!

 

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 wrote that poem, as you can see, in 2015 and today, the whole world is in the grips of a pandemic. Take this time to act because as confusion reigns and the government is trying to lock us all down, either our rights will never be regained from this,(the few we have) or we will forage a new path because a new path is what is needed. Look around you, the time is ripe. In multiple states, there are calls for rent strikes. In multiple states, there are calls for strikes, walk-outs, sit-outs and the momentum is building. People are sick of this shit! This is exactly what we needed to happen. Corporations get bailed out to the tune of billions while millions of mostly Black low wage workers are being handed a measly $1,200 if and when the IRS gets around to it. Also, those who are seniors/veterans/disabled are being told that they will have to file a tax return since many of them are so low income, there has been no need for them  to ever file a tax return. The military is fucked up to the point whereas the pentagon is refusing to admit to how many soldiers are actually down with coronavirus. In some states, the doors of jails are opening to release prisoners due to the spread of coronavirus.

Soon kkkops will be falling down with coronavirus. First responders are coming down with this. Even in this dead ass burg, it was announced that a firefighter has coronavirus. Pretty soon, homes and businesses on fire will be burning the fuck up because there’ll be no one to put them out. So, in other words, strike while the iron is hot! The uber rich ain’t circling the damn oceans in their super yachts for nothing or they are sitting in so-called luxury underground bunkers trying to wait this shit out. One goddamn flaming hypocritical piece of filthy shit billionaire had the gonads to post a pic of himself sailing on his yacht talking about, “What a way to escape the coronavirus.” The outcry over that was so damn loud, the filthy fucker took the pic down. They are laughing at us over the fact that they can just escape in their yachts and bunkers and mansions in the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts and leave us all to continue plodding along enriching their pockets as we risk contracting this virus while their shit gets bailed out. Fuck that!

If we fail to take this golden opportunity, we will never forage a new path because believe me, if they ever get a handle on this coronavirus, the shit is still not going to return to ‘normal’ because since the government thinks it has effectively locked us all down, (for our own good according to them) do you seriously think that they won’t up the ante if and when this virus is under control? Exactly!

 

‘Fake’ Religion VS. ‘Real’ Coronavirus

Fake ass christians are flouting city and state COVID-19 directives banning crowds of more than 10 that were put in place in an attempt to rein in the coronavirus pandemic, but as usual, the foolish, brainwashed sheeple take no heed because the fake ass religious bullshit that they have been fed for too damn long has taken root and sent logical thought, fleeing.

A choir decided to go ahead with rehearsal. Now dozens of members have COVID-19 and two are dead

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. — With the coronavirus quickly spreading in Washington state in early March, leaders of the Skagit Valley Chorale debated whether to go ahead with weekly rehearsal.

Sixty singers showed up. A greeter offered hand sanitizer at the door, and members refrained from the usual hugs and handshakes.

Nearly three weeks later, 45 have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or ill with the symptoms, at least three have been hospitalized, and two are dead.

So tell me, who is singing now? And I suppose the fake ass christians are going to say, “It was their time. They are with the lord.” And to that I would respond, “How the fuck do YOU know?” Oh that’s right. Just how you know that there is some magical being beyond the stars that’s sitting somewhere handing down cases after cases of coronavirus just to test us and send some of us to meet this so-called ‘maker’ of ours; this magical being, is that about right?

Let me just clue you dumbasses in on something. If ‘god’ made you, then he also gave you a damn brain which should enable you to have the ability to think for yourselves and if a pandemic has been declared and those who are supposedly ALL in the know as to what to do to protect yourselves tell you to ‘distance yourself from others’ and who also issue ‘shelter in place’ orders, then that is what the hell you need to do. But do you? No! You believe that some magical being is going to protect your ass from your own stupidity in flouting the protocols that have been established to protect not only YOUR stupid ass from contracting coronavirus but also to protect those of us from your stupid coronavirus filled asses.

You don’t give a damn about your fellow so-called ‘humans’ because it is ALL about you and your magical being sitting up in some heavenly paradise awaiting YOUR stupid ass to join him. Go ahead! But you don’t get to take the rest of us out and along with you on YOUR ‘magical’ journey to the ‘rapture’. You don’t get to decide that the rest of us had better believe the bullshit lies spouted from pulpits ALL across this shithole from snake oil salesmen selling you fake ass snake oil in the form of a guaranteed spot in some mansions in the fucking sky with some magical being. If you want to believe in that shit, that’s on your dumb ass, but you don’t get to claim that you’re better than all others and so you get to flout the law and do as you please when we are supposed to be on lockdown.

I knew you damn phony ass, hypocrite nutcases would claim that your ‘religious freedoms’ were being denied you as an excuse to venture out because your damn asses are getting antsy from being cooped up with those little hellions you call kids. To hell with that. Your hellions trying your last nerve is NOT my problem, nor should it be the cause of me contracting coronavirus. You deal with that shit, in your fucking home!

And here we have another bunch of lunatic, religious nutcases that defied COVID-19 orders to lock yourself down; shelter in place!

Louisiana church defies COVID-19 order, holds Sunday services

CENTRAL, La. — Pentecostal preacher Tony Spell didn’t just stand before his congregation on Sunday in defiance of the governor’s order to stay home: He leaped into the pews, paraded, hugged and laid hands on worshipers’ foreheads in prayer.

Across Louisiana, the coronavirus has infected more than 3,500 people and led to 151 deaths as of Sunday, with one of the highest per-capita death rates in the country down the interstate in New Orleans. To limit its spread, Gov. John Bel Edwards banned gatherings of more than 50 people earlier this month and on March 22 issued a stay-at-home order.

And according to snake oil salesman, Tony Spell, “Churches are the last stable community institutions.” Seriously??!!! Oh, I guess, like Trump, he is a “stable genius.” I just cannot make this shit up. Churches are filled with the UNSTABLE! That is a proven fact! How the hell can you believe in and worship that which you have not seen and claim that you have faith in what you cannot see while at the same time, hating your neighbor, who you don’t even want to see???!!!

The claim is that people of ALL stripes and hues ‘worship’ at this snake oil salesman’s church, and yet, they ALL leave and return to segregated communities and so what ‘good’ does going to church do ANY of those hypocrites; those heathens? The Blacks go back to their parish. The whites go back to theirs and the snake oil salesman and his minions go back to theirs, only to come together to practice fake ass shit at the proper time on appointed days. And if ANY of you were getting any benefit from what this snake oil salesman was selling, it would show, but when you look around, is it? Hatred and animosity towards one another abounds in this shithole while these so-called religious snake oil salesmen drone on and on about, what, I don’t know because it is quite apparent that there is no ‘love’ going around because if it were, it would surely be in evidence. I don’t see hide nor hair of that shit and neither do you brain dead hypocrites that’s sitting up in church listening to lies and speaking gibberish and calling it “speaking in tongues.” You sound stupid and you look dumb and ignorant because you are. But at the same time, you are killing people by spreading a virus that is highly contagious. You christian shits are like some Jim Jones shit; motherfuckers sitting up drinking the poisoned kool-aid and dropping dead, but in this case, taking others out with you.

The law needs to shut your asses down because it is quite obvious that you are too starstruck by some make believe, fake ass shit to have any sense about you stupid shits whatsoever. And for those of you who need further proof of how fucked up these so-called christian ‘holy men’ are, read this shit while I fucking weep!

Liberty University’s Jerry Falwell Jr. Gets Holy Hell As Students Fall Sick

 

Falwell partially reopened the school, and now nearly a dozen students reportedly have symptoms.

Jerry Falwell Jr. last week partially reopened his Liberty University ― an evangelical Christian school in Lynchburg, Virginia ― despite the spread of the coronavirus. Now, The New York Times reports that nearly a dozen students have symptoms that could suggest infection ― and Falwell is facing the wrath of both parents and critics.Falwell has been a coronavirus conspiracy theorist, claiming an “overreaction” to the threat is really an attempt to make President Donald Trump look bad.“Impeachment didn’t work, and the Mueller report didn’t work, and Article 25 didn’t work,” he said earlier this month on Fox News, which has consistently given voice to conspiracy theories. “And so maybe now this is their next attempt to get Trump.”

This little shithole burg is as ill equipped to handle a pandemic as a fly is ill equipped to fell a charging bull. But this dumbass, clueless, racist, greedy as all hell snake oil salesman Jerry Falwell Jr., has unleashed a damn pandemic on what amounts to Hootersville. There will be so many deaths from this virus in this burg, the numbers will astound even the most hard hearted. Those of you who know nothing of Lynchburg should know  this, the dumb shits that graduate from nursing school here should never be allowed inside a clinic that’s set up for the express purpose of healing sick gnats, much less do they have  the medical knowledge and tools to aid sick people in healing. The vast majority of Lynchburg residents go outside of Lynchburg to get their medical care because WE know that WE are fucking DOOMED if we get any health care in this shithole burg!

But this fake ass christian conservative Trump asshole eater, Jerry Falwell Jr., has unleashed hell on the residents of Lynchburg, many of which are poor and are destined to succumb to coronavirus. And what’s more, Falwell will be glad because he has ALWAYS been against poor people in Lynchburg. He even raised the rent on a grocery store that was in a high density poverty area that Lynchburg’s poor used to frequent to do their grocery shopping. The grocery store had to close down. He knowingly did this so that Lynchburg’s poor would be in a food desert. And now he wants to screech and shout about how Liberty’s students hand out bags of food and some rags to Lynchburg’s poor. What the hell is that going to do when people are  trying to breathe and can’t because they have been ravaged by the coronavirus? Falwell knew what would happen when he re-opened Liberty University because he is very much aware of the state of ‘health care’ in this shithole burg and who was already dying due to a lack of properly trained medical staff at ALL Lynchburg area medical facilities and that includes both hospitals; Lynchburg General and Virginia Baptist.

If you could see what the vast majority of people look like down here, someone would call for that bastard’s head on a platter because as bad as these people look now, the shit is about to go the fuck off in a horrific way down here. Yeah! This is what religious bullshitters do for you! This is what happens when these christian shits defy orders to put shit on lockdown. The Falwells have ALWAYS been treated as if they are above the law and that is why this scum sucking bottom feeder is getting away with this shit! He is no different from Trump; both are two sides of the same coin. Both called coronavirus a hoax and both claimed that coronavirus was just another setup to cost Trump his re-election bid. Both motherfuckers are insane! And yet, neither is locked up and kept from the public. Both are given a platform on which to continue to fuck innocent people up without any consequences whatsofucking ever.

Those Falwells have had Lynchburg locked down for far too long. This shithole burg is run more like a fiefdom than a city whereas rich whites lock this shit down and no one had better say a fucking word and the vast majority do NOT! Why the fuck do you think that this blog is filled with the fucked up shit that’s happened to me since I’ve been back here? My ass was born here and I am so fucking NOT bragging! In the entire state of Virginia, Lynchburg has the HIGHEST EVICTION RATES! Why is that when we’ve got all of these fake ass conservative christians every goddamn where spouting bullshit?!!! Because they are FAKE, that’s fucking why! And all they care about is money, money, money and the power that comes with having loads of money. They don’t give a shit for ANYONE and that includes their own damn families because have you noticed that no one has said a damn thing about Falwell’s brother, Jonathan? When Jerry Falwell died, he left the purse strings in the hands of Jerry Falwell Jr. And that greedy, lying, racist bastard keeps a tight rein on every damn thing, even on Jonathan. Jonathan better ‘preach’ at that church and otherwise, shut the fuck up AND he does! Everyone in this racist burg is TERRIFIED to speak out against the Falwells, who by the way, obtained their fucking money from running bootleg liquor. They put a lockdown on that shit and became rich enough to start spouting religious bullshit and then off to the races it was. Everyone down here knows the  truth and everyone is too fucking scared of these whackos to do a goddamn thing about them. Many people just move to Madison Heights or further into Amherst to get away from underneath the boot of these damn hypocrite Falwells. And that ain’t no fucking lie!

Every single time Falwell opens his racist, greedy piehole, he is LYING! And he is lying now by saying that no Liberty University students have coronavirus. YES.THEY.DO. And soon, the rest of Lynchburg is going to have it too and there will be MASS CREMATIONS. And if you think I’m being overly dramatic, continue to watch for news that will soon be coming out of Lynchburg. I don’t give a damn about what happens to these rich white assholes down here, but the poor Black people are going to be dropping like flies.

You goddamn fake ass, sanctimonious, holier-than-thou, religious heathens, drop the fuck dead already and take your goddamn snake oil salesmen with you! You have caused enough harm and sadly, many Black people are following YOUR goddamn lead because I saw plenty of Black motherfuckers decked out in their Sunday church rags yesterday and I just shook my head because even now, they are NOT heeding ‘shelter in place’ orders. But since they are SO ready to head for ‘the rapture’, know this, your asses are headed for DEAD, I do know that! Where the hell else you go, do you even fucking know? Hell no, you don’t! And if Falwell truly believed in Jesus Christ, he would NOT be such a racist, greedy, fake ass christian piece of shit because according to the Buybull, Jesus said, “Give up your worldly goods and follow me!” Does that look like what the fuck Falwell and ALL the other rich white so-called christian conservatives are doing? Fuck NO!

Furthermore, this is what I think of your religious bullshit, you fake ass christian heathens!

…About A Needle’s Eye…

Who cares about a needle’s eye?
Eternal wealth is what I crave.
I do not care about the poor.
Let them lie in a pauper’s grave.

As you attend your service to god,
You believe in him, you say.
But if you had my wealth,
to whom would you still pray?

Cease with the pretense,
that religion is all about love.
You know there is no heaven,
and no deity from above.

Whenever sheep awaken,
a shepherd is produced,
To keep the sheep in line.
another coma is thus induced.

An awakened world is dangerous,
so we invented a fairy tale,
to keep from you the fact,
that there really is no hell.

Could you be kept in line,
if you were wide awake,
and not afraid of any god,
that religion could ever make?

Matthew 19:24- Matthew 19:29
And Jesus said to His disciples, “Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24″Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

25When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said, “Then who can be saved?”…

26And looking at them Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

27Then Peter said to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?

28And Jesus said to them, “Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.…
“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.…

Now, ask yourself why the Walmart Waltons are holding tight to their wealth. Ask yourself why politicians who avidly profess to being conservative Christians, continue to sell their ‘soul’ for money and tightly clinch to their chest, the bribes and kickbacks they get from lobbyists. Why are Bill and Melinda Gates deemed such philanthropists but they are NOT so filled with love that they are concerned about ‘getting through the eye of the needle’ that Jesus Christ supposedly talked about?

Why do the rich seem to not concern themselves with a so-called ‘afterlife’? It is because they don’t BELIEVE in some unseen deity beyond the stars. They know better! But you’ve got to be kept in line, praying to god to fill your empty pantry so that you can feed your children while corporate executives swill the finest wines and eat the choicest of meats and delicacies. Why are they not concerned about getting to ‘heaven’, entering the Pearly Gates, meeting up with St. Peter, ‘getting through the eye of a needle’?

It is because this is all a lie! A big, gigantic lie to keep the sheep, docile with the hope that some deity is going to reward them for the hardships that they endure on this planet and not look at those who have hoarded all the wealth and rise up! Religion is a tool to control people and I’ve got to say, it IS working!

Wake up people! No one is going to rescue you or save you, but you! Stop allowing yourself to be controlled. The shit that the ‘poor man’s Pope adorns himself with could feed a small starving village in Africa, but you don’t see him refusing to wear it. If Jesus supposedly walked around, attired in a robe with a rope for a belt, is the Pope any better than ‘Jesus’? What is your bishop, reverend, pastor, rabbi driving? A horse and buggy or a Rolls-Royce Sweptail.? Are they walking? Exactly!

Here’s another gem!

“Jesus! A Minute Of Your Time!”

 

Some nights, when I cannot fall asleep,
I do not ask the Lord my soul to keep.
Once I believed, but I do not believe anymore.
He never heals the sick or feeds the poor.

His ‘holy’ men just take the tithes from fools,
who by rights should get a refund from their schools,
for believing in a fairy tale of such bull,
and pretending that an empty cup is full.

If I once believed in God, that ship has sailed,
nor can I pray to a man they say was nailed.
For if they did exist, why have they ignored the cries
of all the ‘holy men’ who spout tall tales and lies?

Their brainwashed flock, they will believe,
those who get paid to lie, con and deceive.
And who promise that the sick will all be healed
and that Blacks will not be jailed or shot and killed.

Next Sunday, look at the picture on the wall.
Kneel before it and in a deep, southern drawl,
say, “Jesus, a minute of your time!”
“Why is Black skin at the scene of every crime?”
“What wrong did we ever do to you,
“that would make you hate us for it too?”
 “I listen to your word, oh Lord on high!”
 “So once again, I have to ask you why?”
 “If you exist, and there really is no sign,
at how much evil, will you finally draw the line?”

Black folks, you ought to KNOW better! Seriously!!!!! Look at the state of Black America. But with all of these fucking churches, why the fuck is Black America so fucked up? You can’t understand why? Because your church hands out some damn outdated cans of beans, it’s doing something, is that it? And why the fuck are you believing in some damn white man’s god? No white man means you any good and why the hell you don’t know THAT shit by now, just amazes me! But keep believing in the white man’s fake ass ‘god’ and you’ll find yourselves wishing you hadn’t. And that ain’t no lie for when has the white man EVER meant us ANY good? Yeah! You think on THAT! And think about the plight of the Indian in this shithole and  take the shit from there!

 

Let Me Make This Clear To You Whites Who Are Talking About How “We Are In This Together Thanks To Coronavirus” WE AIN’T IN SHIT TOGETHER!

 

Whites, I’m about sick of your bullshit! All of a sudden, now that coronavirus has reared its viral head, whites are screeching and wailing that “We are ALL in this together!” What.The.Fuck. I am NOT in shit with you nasty ass whites!

You pasty assed shits need to take several seats! American descendants of slaves were thrown under the bus by you pasty assed devils since FOREVER in this shithole, but now that this virus has your asses running scared while at the same time making you sit your damn depraved, debased asses down somewhere, quarantined in your McMansions, you ain’t got shit to do but think about the shit that you can’t fucking do! GOOD! But while you’re at it, don’t get the shit twisted. Those of us who are ADOS are NOT in shit with you! You fucking white assholes moved yourselves into gated communities to get away from us. You fucking raised the rents in our neighborhoods, thus rendering us homeless as you gentrified that shit and now that coronavirus is breathing down your damn pasty necks, we’re suddenly, ALL IN THIS SHIT TOGETHER???!!! Are you worthless fucks for real??!! You’ve got the fucking balls of bulls to come up with that shit! Fuck you!!!

Ain’t no ADOS in this shit with you funky, pasty assed, filthy white motherfuckers! You’re on your damn own! You cannot stand the fact that coronavirus cannot be bought. You cannot throw your credit cards at it. You cannot impress it with your white privilege. You cannot impress it with your fucked up sense of ‘white supremacy’. You cannot drone strike it away. You cannot bomb it away. You cannot sanction it away. Hell! There’s not a goddamn thing that you can do but wait your turn to come down with coronavirus and that’s scaring the hell out of you because ordinarily, you’d be in line at Disney World or at Disneyland with your screaming hellions, but you can’t do that because coronavirus has come in and put paid to that shit! I’m loving it! I am LOVING the fact that coronavirus has got your pasty asses on the fucking run. Yeah! Run to the Hamptons. Run to the desert. Run to the mountains. Makes no difference. Coronavirus is going to find your ass and all the money in the world is NOT going to keep your pasty asses safe from what is YOUR due! You refused to pay your dues and now coronavirus is here to collect and it will. And it is far from done. You refuse to do the right thing and so the right thing is going to do you. Welcome coronavirus! Every pasty assed motherfucker’s door is open and so just go on in and settle down for a spell. Enjoy yourself coronavirus because it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of freeloading, scum sucking bottom feeders that got rich off the backs of my ancestors and now that they can do nothing with their ill gotten gains, they want to screech about how “We are all in this together!” Fuck you whites! We ain’t in shit together!

Finally, something is coming for your asses and there ain’t a goddamn thing you can do about it but wait for the inevitable. Shit must be getting to you right about now because you’ve been housebound for how long now? And your lord and savior, racist-in-chief Donald Trump knows that only too well. That’s why he’s encouraging your worthless asses to head inside a church on Easter Sunday and pray to your bullshit god to save your no account asses. It won’t do you any good because your bullshit god is just that, BULLSHIT! Unfortunately, you’ve got many ADOS going along with your fake ass religious bullshit because they’ve been fucking brainwashed by you filthy parasites, but not me. I spit on your religious shit, you goddamn monsters.

Oh you are running scared alright because this is not just a Black disease, this virus is taking your pasty asses out in droves. Life as you know is has ended. And believe me, nothing will ever be the same again, so you can just forget about that “back to normal” bullshit! This IS normal for me and those who look like me. Remember when I said in previous blogs that the poor Black homeless people who are dealing with typhus and hookworm and other major diseases would not be dealing with epidemics and shit of the like, alone? If you don’t then you can archive this blog to your heart’s content and you will most definitely find me stating that your turn was coming and voila! It’s here! Ain’t it grand? Having fun yet? I am!

Ask the ‘future’ king of England, Prince Charles, if he was rich enough to keep himself from contracting the virus. Ask the Prime Minister of the UK if he was rich enough to keep himself from contracting the virus. Ask multiple heads of state ALL across this planet were they rich enough or powerful enough to keep themselves from contracting the virus. So,  tell me whites, how’s your money helping you now? You can’t shop. You can’t go to Disney World. You can’t go watch a pro sports game. You can’t play golf. You can’t go to the spa. You can’t jet around the world and go skiing. You can’t go on a cruise. Your money is doing what for you now? You’re doing what now? Exactly! Your ass is on lockdown and pretty soon, you’re going to get antsy because having money and there’s nothing you can do with it is going to cause you to go nuts. What are you going to do when the months drag on, whites? Those parties in the Hamptons are going to get old. Those desert hideaways are going to get boring. Those mountain views are soon going to turn into raging fire views because fire season is coming. And so you are going to have to drag your pale asses down from those mountains and stop hiding out from coronavirus. So you may as well drag your dusty, pale asses on down off the mountains now and get it over with.

And in case you dumb ass whites cannot figure out why I am not upset or worried about coronavirus, it is because I have you to ‘thank’ for that. Because of YOU pasty assed monstrosities, my life has ALWAYS consisted of pain, suffering, torment, hunger, homelessness and some more shit of the like and so why should I be afraid of coronavirus?  I’m not, but you’re so fucking scared, you can hardly function. And so you will NEVER be able to understand how I can deal with this shit and millions of those who look like me are dealing with this shit because your life has not been ours. Your life has been filled with the opposite of mine and millions who look like me. I’ve lost a sister to crack that YOU pasty assed shits let loose on innocent people like me. I’ve lost multiple loved ones thanks to you pasty assed motherfuckers taking the HYPOCRITE OATH when it comes to practicing medicine on us and I could go on and on and on as in mass incarceration, a school-to-prison pipeline, income inequality, gentrification, mass homelessness, disparities in health care and the list is endless and so without further ado, let me just reiterate that we are NOT in this virus shit together white motherfuckers! As far as I am concerned, WHITES, you are on your own. Deal with the shit! You left me to deal with the shit you dealt me and so fuck you AND yours!

 

Another Good Girl Gone Bad!

Here we go, another ‘good’ girl gone bad.
And yeah, I know, the fucking world’s gone mad.

This is where I say, “I don’t give a shit!”
Who am I kidding? That’s it! I quit!!

I don’t give a good goddamn anymore!
What the fuck? I can’t even the score!

And hell no, my halo ain’t slipping.
To this fucked up world, the bird, I’m flipping.

This time I’ve just stopped giving a fuck.
To those in need, you are SO out of luck.

How many ‘good’ days have you ever had?
When has the ‘good’ outweighed the bad?

Me? I’ll never be mistaken for a SAP!
Sad and Pathetic, to hell with that crap!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’ve heard it all before!
We’ve got to feed the hungry and look out for the poor!

Go tell it on the mountain and then head to Wall Street!
And sit your ass down and accept the word, DEFEAT!

Write it all down and sell it if you can.
You ain’t fooling me, I know you got no plan.

Re-write history and what about the lies?
Who conquers who? I won’t wait for that surprise!

And who the hell says there is a human race?
I’ve looked far and wide, there ain’t a goddamn trace!

Talk shit to the dead who got nothing to lose.
They’re sitting in church, so go light the fuse.

The puppets and the zombies all dance to one tune.
All are kept in line by the goon’s platoon.

Step one foot out and you get your ass shot.
You can ‘care’ if you want, but it’s all for naught.

….and don’t come in here with no bullshit about how we’re ALL in this together. We’re not in shit together! We’re not doing a goddamn thing but pissing in the wind and as soon as you wake the fuck up and recognize, the better off your ass will be. It is fucking war! Ain’t no goddamn peace!!


As you can see, I wrote this in 2013 and not a goddamn thing has changed except that now that coronavirus is here, you whites are screeching about “We are all in this together!” FUCK IF WE ARE! I’m NOT in shit with you! This shit is coming mostly for your asses and I am damn sure NOT in shit with you white, filthy assed, no good, racist, parasitic creatures! So stop coming up to me on the streets talking that shit about us being in this shit together. You never talked THAT shit before, so don’t even fucking bother starting with that shit now! You are FUCKING ON YOUR OWN! Scared much?!! HA! I’m loving it!

Health Care Workers On The Coronavirus Front Lines Say “This System Is Doomed!”

Nurses who are treating coronavirus patients are being advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to start using bandanas and scarves as they run out of  masks. And nurses are contracting coronavirus as a result. Capitalism at its finest! So tell me, when the nurses are laid low, who is going to treat coronavirus patients? Donald Trump? Mike Pence? Mitch McConnell?

 

Nothing like ‘good’ news about how capitalism and our government works for the ‘good’ of the people in times of crises, right?

‘This system is doomed’: Doctors, nurses sound off in NBC News Coronavirus study

Many reported being forced to ration or reuse supplies, including surgical and N-95 masks, for fear of running out. Many also said they were facing shortages of basic sanitary supplies, including hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.

The N95 mask filters out airborne particulates and aerosols, and the Food and Drug Administration advises that neither N-95 masks, nor surgical masks, should be used more than once.

But in response to growing shortages of PPE, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has loosened its guidelines on proper use and reuse of masks. On Thursday, the agency advised that bandanas and scarves could be used by healthcare workers in place of a mask as a last resort.

Bandanas and scarves? The supposedly richest country on the planet has nurses on the front lines of coronavirus crisis using bandanas and scarves to protect themselves from the ravages of coronavirus as they take care of coronavirus patients? Seriously???!!! Capitalism at its finest. Meanwhile, the asswipes that kept this virus hush hush are still trying to protect capitalism and ONLY capitalism at the expense of the Amerikkkan people. Doesn’t this just give you a warm and cozy feeling inside to know that your lord and savior, racist-in-chief, Donald Trump is busy protecting his buddies on Wall Street along with his many ‘businesses’ and that of his family while throwing your asses under the bus; those of you who voted for him, that is? And millions upon millions of racist whites, did indeed, vote for this piece of racist filth that is making sure that this virus rages out-of-control thanks to Trump firing the entire PANDEMIC AGENCY that was put into play by his predecessor and since his predecessor was Barack Obama, well there you go!

Meanwhile, an ER nurse was exposed to coronavirus, has the symptoms, but cannot get tested. Ain’t capitalism grand?

An ER nurse told us she was exposed to the coronavirus and has symptoms but still can’t get tested , and it highlights both America’s crippling inequality and its broken health care system

 

  • Since the coronavirus outbreak reached the US, over a dozen nurses nationwide told Business Insider their hospitals still don’t have a clear process to protect them or their patients.Nurses who have treated coronavirus patients and developed symptoms cannot get tests.One hospital in California told a symptomatic nurse she did not qualify for a coronavirus test, despite coming into direct contact with a positive patient.Testing across the US has been messy and inconsistent due to delays from the federal government in approving and delivering materials.

So Amerikkkans, still feeling all that ‘exceptionalism’ that you bought, hook, line and sinker? How does it feel to finally get what you’ve always wanted? Unrelenting capitalism whereas those YOU elected could care less about you coming down with this virus because if they did, do you think that nurses would have to beg to be tested even AFTER they have come into contact with a coronavirus positive patient? And who the hell knows how many people are walking around with this virus since “testing across the US has been messy and inconsistent due to delays from the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN APPROVING AND DELIVERING MATERIALS?” What great logistics we have here, don’t you think?

Everyone is screeching about what’s going down in Italy and Spain while they’d better be worried about what’s going down in the CAPITALISM STATES OF AMERIKKKA because it doesn’t get any ‘better’ than this and how many of you think this shit is going to get ‘better’ with the stupid shit that’s leading the charge against coronavirus?

And many ‘experts’ claim that the CAPITALISM STATES OF AMERIKKKA is unprepared for this pandemic. What? Naw….who would have thought? The experts are comparing Italy’s health system infrastructure to that of this shithole’s and this shithole’s health system’s infrastructure is coming up appallingly short since in Italy  there are more hospital beds per 1,000 people than the United States–which could signal a lack of preparedness in the US, according to commentary published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine. “Though Italy’s health system is highly regarded and has 3.2 hospital beds per 1,000 people (as compared with 2.8 in the United States), it has been impossible to meet the needs of so many critically ill patients simultaneously,” Dr. Lisa Rosenbaum, a cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. But the experts are still trying to figure out why Italy’s coronavirus rates are so high. Well keep at it, you’ll eventually figure it out.

Meanwhile, even Russia is doing better than this shithole in mitigating the number of coronavirus cases. In fact, Russia has a handle on their coronavirus cases and the numbers of infected are dwindling daily while the numbers here in the states are accelerating at an even greater pace, but then Russia began to take proactive steps as early as January while this shithole’s leaders were busy trying to attack Iran instead of testing those who were coming to this shithole carrying coronavirus. It is just appalling that in a time of crisis, this shithole was still trying to go to war with Iran simply because Iran’s defenses are low as they battle coronavirus with little to no aid thanks to sanctions put into play against them by this shithole. If there is any consolation to what Iran’s people are dealing with, then it is the fact that this shithole’s population is not faring any better than those in Iran. So to any Iranians out there, at least know that while this shithole was trying to attack and bomb you into last century, these shits over here were about to get bombarded with coronavirus as well, and they have.

And you stupid Amerikkkan shits are sitting somewhere wondering why there is no coordinated response for this virus coming from those who are in charge? Are you serious? They are still trying to wage war and protect CAPITALISM. When will you stupid, racist Amerikkkans ever get it through your thick, brainless skulls that your so-called, ‘leaders’, don’t give a shit about any of us because if they did, wouldn’t it show? But does it? Yes indeed, you ALL know the answer to that and while they try and hash out some trillion dollar stimulus package, your rent is about to become due for next month and yet, you have to sit at home alongside your children since you cannot head to your jobs nor can the kiddies go to daycare because this shithole was concentrating on starting a war against Iran and was not even thinking about implementing coronavirus protocols that could have mitigated its impact on this shithole. You think about that shit while you’re sitting at home listening to some shit that you’ve got Alexa playing to keep you distracted from the reality of how fucked you are, stimulus package or not because that stimulus package is going to aid corporations, not our broke asses.

You wanted CAPITALISM. You got it! How well is that working out for you? Get back to me on that. Rome is burning and I for one, am glad!

And As Rome Did Fall From Grace!

Steeped in melancholia
and adorned in robes of sorrow,
I walk among the wretched.
They will be dead before tomorrow.

Bleached bones lie in the sand,
stripped bare of any flesh
as they prepare to turn to dust
and are blown away like ash.

Alone, I stand and look
upon the dry and barren plains.
And I shrug and walk away
from what used to be fruited plains.

An empire meets its fate
just like in days of old
And as Rome did fall from grace,
America’s future was foretold.

But yet Americans still cannot come to terms with the fact that their Disney vacations have been cut short. This is just how stupid and entitled the WHITE Amerikkkans in this shithole are to sit somewhere and post a video of them acting out a Disney vacation. I just throw my goddamn hands up!

Even as all hell breaks loose, the fun and games MUST continue. Fun and games and fake ass fantasy, that is the essence of Amerikkka. For the love of !!!!!!!

 

 

 

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!!!
