Also from the article:

Killer Mike is a wonderful advocate and I do agree with him that looting/destroying small businesses especially those owned by POC would not be helping the movement.

Okay first, let’s take apart the chart.

The broken windows theory is a criminological theory that states that visible signs of crime, anti-social behavior, and civil disorder create an urban environment that encourages further crime and disorder, including serious crimes. The theory suggests that policing methods that target minor crimes such as vandalism, loitering, public drinking, jaywalking and fare evasion help to create an atmosphere of order and lawfulness, thereby preventing more serious crime.

Broken windows policing is just an excuse to lock up as many Black people as possible on bullshit charges in order to ‘feed’ them to the Prison Industrial Complex which is the new SLAVERY! Black people who are homeless are being fed to the system since loitering has been made a crime and usually Black people are criminalized for loitering simply because they lack a home. Black people are also ticketed for jaywalking. For the love of !!!

Community Oversight.

Many cities have implemented community oversight and yet, why are we still attempting to claim that the answer to police murdering Black people is simply more community involvement when that has not been working, ANYWHERE? Police are still killing Black people with impunity despite some cities with community oversight committees. If it has shown to not work, then why keep at it?

Limit use of force.

How has that been working out? If it has been working, then why are we still talking about the fact that so many kops are guilty of using excessive force to subdue suspects and are in fact, killing the suspects before they can even make it to jail. Cops have become judge, jury and executioner, right on the streets, in broad day light and on camera and so cops limiting use of force is not going to happen with what’s already on police forces all across this racist shithole guilty of using excessive force on American descendants of slavery every damn day.

Independently Investigate and Prosecute.

Really? Seriously? The whites will still make up the ‘independent investigative’ board and will come to the same conclusions that the ‘in house’ investigators come to. What is going to change? Nothing.

Community Representation.

AGAIN, there have been calls for community representation, many times and even with community representation, the shit continues to go down and so therefore, makes community representation, null and void. Whites are NOT going to listen to a group of Black people from their few remaining communities talk about a damn thing as it relates to holding white kops accountable for their out-of-control, rampant abuse and brutality of American descendants of slavery.

Body cams/Film the police

AGAIN, the kops just shut the body cams off whenever they are about to do some dirty shit. Not to mention, why should kops be given the ability to cut off the body cams in the first place? It is for the express purpose of turning those cameras off in order to hide the criminal shit they do. Also, who is monitoring the supposedly ‘monitored’? Those who sit in the offices of police headquarters can just as easily delete anything that they don’t want seen on camera. So body cams are NOT the answer since there are still multiple incidents of police brutality and the police just turn off the body cams and even when bystanders film events of police brutality, the police still get off. Eric Garner’s killer got off and what was done to him was captured on video and the person who captured the murder of Eric Garner on video, himself went to jail while the kop that murdered Eric Garner is free as a  bird. So yeah, outfitting ALL kops with body cams is going to work. 🙄🙄🙄 Serious fucking eye roll!

Training.

Do I really even need to go there? We ALL see what happens when kops are trained; Black people get murdered by them. End.Of.Story.

End for profit policing.

Like that’s going to happen. The criminal INjustice system gets the bulk of its money from victimless crimes. Before Philando Castile was murdered, various municipalities had relieved that man of over $6,000 in tickets from everything from a suspended license to expired insurance to driving with expired tags. The man was stopped so many times, I am sure that he came to expect it every single time he started up his vehicle. Police departments are not going to end quotas for tickets and arrests. Nor will they stop issuing fines or arrest warrants for poor Black people who cannot pay and so go to jail, Nor is the criminal INjustice system going to cease seizing property of civilians (i.e. civil forfeiture). It is too lucrative.

Demilitarization.

Are you serious? With all of the equipment from warzones on the streets today that were used to contain the previous protests and people actually expect police departments ALL across this shithole to give up what they requested and received from the Pentagon? Get real. Those militarized vehicles are not going anywhere. The military style techniques that were recently used on peaceful protesters aren’t going anywhere. I don’t care how many calls there are for a demilitarization of police departments, that is never going to happen. Why…what would they do with ALL of that military equipment? Allow it to sit and collect dust? Yeah! And the ‘toothfairy’ is real.

Fair police union contracts.

“Most states permit police officers to bargain collectively over the terms of their employment, including the content of internal disciplinary procedures. This means that police union contracts—largely negotiated outside of public view—shape the content of disciplinary procedures used by American police departments.”

And so if you believe that that is going to change, then believe this, I’ve got some great beachfront property for sale right smack dab in the middle of Death Valley. It’s gorgeous!

Now I’d like to tackle this!

Killer Mike is a wonderful advocate and I do agree with him that looting/destroying small businesses especially those owned by POC would not be helping the movement.

First of all, this ‘Killer Mike’ is NOT a ‘wonderful advocate’. His shirt includes the wording, “Kill Your Masters,” but his actual words state otherwise. ‘Killer Mike’ seems to be under the impression that gentrification is something that the whites plan on implementing when they get to Mars. Whites actually believe that they will land on the red planet some day and apparently, ‘Killer Mike’ believes that then and only then, will the whites implement ‘gentrification’. Other than that, they’re waiting on the rapture to put that shit into play. The reality is, ‘Killer Mike’ is NOT living in reality. He is not living in the ‘real world’.

‘Killer Mike’ said in the video and I quote, “I wanted to see the whole world burn down because I am tired of seeing Black men die!”

‘Killer Mike’ is “tired of seeing Black men die!” Never mind Black women and children, he is only incensed over Black men dying at the hands of cops. Black women and children are on their own. Someone else can be “tired of seeing Black women and children die”  at the hands of racist kops. You see how incredibly insensitive Black men are when it comes to Black women and Black children? We don’t even get included when Black men get “tired.” That, in and of itself, is quite telling.

“I wanted to see the whole world burn down…”

But then ‘Killer Mike’ turned right around and said this. “We need to plot, plan, strategize, organize and mobilize.” Uh…I’ve heard that somewhere before. Oh, now I remember, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and crew tried that already and look where we are, right back at square one in needing to “plot, plan, strategize, organize and mobilize.” Yeah, that worked SO well for us. That is why we are where we are, AGAIN, at square one.

I do agree with him that looting/destroying small businesses especially those owned by POC would not be helping the movement.

First of all, POC or ‘people of color’ are not American descendants of slavery. POC are immigrants. You’re getting the shit twisted. Whatever burned down when the shit hit the fan after what went down in Minneapolis, MN, did NOT belong to American descendants of slavery beyond two stores. The rest were owned by foreigners. I am TIRED of American descendants of slavery continuously grouped in with foreigners/immigrants/refugees who are NOT even in our corner. If some Mexican taco trucks burned to the ground, what’s that got to do with American descendants of slavery? If some African halal meat markets burned to the ground, what’s that got to do with American descendants of slavery? If a Target was set on fire, what’s that got to do with American descendants of slavery? If a new apartment development got burned to the ground, what’s that got to do with American descendants of slavery, especially since we will continue to walk around Minneapolis, MN, HOMELESS even if that development was finished because make no mistake, the faces of the homeless in Minneapolis, MN are American descendants of slavery? And so, come again about what we’d be missing out on with some burned out buildings? Because newsflash! We got no stake in any of those so-called POC small businesses that got destroyed. They were not owned by American descendants of slavery. Even the few homes that American descendants of slavery reside in are not owned by them. They are paying some whites or some foreigner, rent to live in substandard housing.

As far as I am concerned, the shit should still be burning because that is ALL whites understand, loss of revenue; capitalism ground to a halt. Whites understand NOTHING else.  So, we don’t need anymore sellouts telling us what the fuck we need to do about some damn businesses and neighborhoods filled to bursting with foreigners that the whites welcomed over here to help fuck us up even more than what the whites were already doing. Take that fake ass ‘new Black movement’ shit and shove it! We don’t need no more ‘Uncle Toms’ standing around spouting bullshit. If you ain’t about the damn thing, then get to stepping because the last thing we need is to hear about how we are burning down some shit that we don’t even fucking own. Believe me, if the shit had been ours, we would not have been burning it down. It really is that simple. But what these coonheads can’t seem to get is that a people with nothing to lose, will act like it. The sad part is, they refuse to keep the momentum going! And since we refuse to keep the momentum going, don’t be surprised at how quickly you’ll be fired up again when the next video surfaces of yet another white kop murdering a Black person and looking as though he is merely munching on a donut while watching a tire deflate.

 

Our Death Is All They Seek!

Our Death Is All They Seek!

 

To finally get some peace, he had to die out on the street,
killed by hate and racism from every white man we still meet.
For over four hundred years, we have been screaming out our pain,
and little did we know that our screams were all in vain.

The world is finally listening, but what good will that do us?
We marched to sit up front, but now we’re underneath the bus.
The ‘leader’ of this country stood and told us we are “THUGS!”
And then he told his gangsters to stomp us like we’re bugs.

We own no tanks or missiles, nor drones to take a stand.
We’re tired and poor and cursed in this white man’s stolen land.
Our death is all they seek and so we’re off to bury the dead.
Because to them we lack humanity, though our blood is also red.

Why must we bear the blame for a crime we didn’t commit?
To this day, it seems we’re slaves and to their will, we must submit.
We are a people without a country; we are clouds in a savage storm.
blown away by white supremacy, a system they can’t reform.
One day, there’ll be a reckoning that we won’t live to see
for those of us alive today, are still yearning to be free.

It is a sad ass shame that the only way those of us who are descendants of slaves who were dragged over here to ‘serve’ the white man AND white woman’s every whim, can expect to get any peace from them is by being murdered at their hands. There are too many times that we have trudged through a cemetery to bury our dead and some racist kop was never indicted or even fired from his duties of murdering us.

Poor Black people, who mostly cannot even afford life insurance, have to make use of crowd funding or either some ‘celebrity’ will come forward to pay for the funeral expenses. From cradle to grave, we are to forever hand the white man some money while he is busy killing us since many Black women’s babies die in childbirth in this supposedly, First World Nation. What sense does that make? And even if we make it to our teenage years, we are still murdered for merely coming home from a store, carrying iced tea and skittles. Our children cannot even play in a park without getting shot dead. We cannot drive down the street without getting pulled over and shot for complying with the orders to produce our identification. We cannot sleep in our beds without kops beating down the door and shooting us as we lay deep in slumber and yet, none are held accountable for what they do to us.

And now, another Black family, the family of George Floyd, is about set to bury him because he went into a store and was accused of trying to purchase items with a counterfeit bill, and I have heard that even that was a lie. But even so, was that any reason for a racist kop to murder him, casually as though he was merely a bug to be squashed on the sidewalk? As if that is not bad enough, a stomp down, flaming racist, draft dodging bigot has the nerve to order the U.S. military to ‘put us down’ when he was scared too shitless to even join the very military he has called out on us. What sense does that make?

But you whites want to write blog after blog about how ‘woke’ your ass is now! You ain’t woke. Your funky, filthy ass racist petticoat is showing and the world is now denouncing the shit that you’ve been subjecting us to for hundreds of years in this shithole. You haven’t been struck by a ray of conscientiousness. You don’t even have a conscience to berate you, for if you did, would our situation now be making headline news all across this godforsaken planet that you have managed to fuck up? Hell no, it wouldn’t.

You whites think that you’re doing something by showing up at a protest with a sign stating, “Black Lives Matter!” Our lives have never mattered to you and don’t you think for one damn second that I am buying your flaming lies now! So save it! I’m not buying your sudden displays of solidarity when you are why GENTRIFICATION has driven us into homelessness. You are why we are incarcerated by the millions. You are why we are dumb as shit because while you are funding private schools with our money, public schools don’t even have computers or enough books in them and this you know. We are the faces of the jobless, the hungry and the homeless and the disparities in healthcare is obscene and dangerous and is causing our demise at a faster rate than yours. We don’t have any hopes of longevity and most don’t even want to live long, hopeless, racism filled lives of despair!

You whites have shitted on us from the time our ancestors were dragged ashore and you are still shitting on us and telling us that we are to blame for crime in the inner cities; that we are to blame for not having land and wealth to hand down to our sons and daughters. How the hell can we hand a damn thing down to anyone when you made damn sure that you owned it ALL because you damn well owned our ancestors that you claimed were only three fifths of a human? How the hell did you expect us to overcome that shit? YOU DIDN’T. So don’t now turn around and act like you are just getting hit with an epiphany. You know what the fuck you’ve been doing to us and you’re not about to stop that shit now. Shove that fake ass solidarity shit up your pale asses because I am having none of it!

 

How the hell did that man, George Floyd, deserve that? But that is ALL too familiar to us! And you dirty, filthy, racist whites know that this has been going down for centuries. You know this because racists like that piece of shit are YOUR family members and you know your own damn family because you’re one of them. So don’t now claim that you had no idea about ANY of this shit because you’re a goddamn liar! Fucking flaming, racist hypocrites! I despise you ALL!

2020 Is Going To Be A ‘Make Or Break’ Year: That, I Can Sense

The title of this post is taken from a comment that was posted on a blog dated December 29, 2019.

I have been blogging since February of 2013 trying to wake Black people the hell up. It did NOT work. Here is the comment that I posted in response to someone’s comment to me on this blog.

“Yes it is sad and it is only going to get worse. The shit that I’ve seen in just the last 5 years alone should have long since curled my toes. The future for ADOS is extremely bleak, it really is. If we don’t come together as a whole, we are done for. 2020 is going to be a ‘make or break’ year; that, I can sense. The shit the whites are doing to us, they have been ramping it up for years while we sit somewhere in movie theaters watching stupid, make believe shit produced by those racists, while we are still on some fake nails, fake hair and fake chicken sandwich nonsense. What the hell is wrong with us? We have lost SO much ground in the last two decades, it ain’t even funny.

When Tom Joyner signed off on his radio show, he said that “Black America was more woke 50 years ago. Today we are not woke at all.” He could not be more right. More’s the damn pity!

All I can say is, “We’d ALL better wake the fuck up!” It may already be too late. We shall see.”

2020 is proving to be exactly what I knew that it was going to be; a make or break year for American descendants of slavery.

I tried in ways too numerous to count to get those in my group, ADOS, to come up out of their hypnotic trance and get with the program that the whites ain’t fucking playing with us. They have NEVER been playing with us and why we did not understand that the shit was going to get worse for us, I don’t know because the signs were everywhere. And many of us who were already woke to the shit were trying to get the rest to wake the hell up and realize and understand that the stupid shit that many of you were about, needed to be fucking dropped.

While the whites have had most of you hooked, not on phonics, but on Disney and Marvel Comics bullshit, the whites were planning multiple ways to assist in OUR demise, just as they’ve always done. Do you seriously think that it is by accident that most of us ADOS are always on the frontlines of every goddamn horrible shitty shit to come down the pike? Do you seriously think that whites have EVER had our best interest at heart? Have you ever wondered why our mortality rates are, in comparison to whites, out-of-the-ballpark? I could continue as in our poverty rates, unemployment rates, home ownership rates, high school drop out rates, low higher educational achievement rates and don’t even get me started on income disparities when it comes to what American descendants of slaves earn and what whites earn.

Take a look at what everyone is doing as it relates to immigration and put what they are doing up against what we are doing and we are losing, hands down. Every single group that the whites have allowed to immigrate to this shithole have stepped above us, even the Africans who were responsible for ALLOWING the whites to sail off with our ancestors. The Asians are multi-billionaires as are those Hindu motherfuckers from India that’s got cows walking the streets. Those Hindu motherfuckers think more highly of cows than our Black asses here in Amerikkka. The Pakistanis are NOT our friend, nor are the Iraqis, Iranians, the Mexicans, the Spanish, French, Italians, Russians; no other group on this planet is our friend and yet we act as though we have no problems at all.

Look around you Black folks! What the fuck do you see? Article after article after article of Black folks as “The Faces of Coronavirus,” that’s what the fuck you see. And why is that? It is because of racism; filthy, savage, brutal racism! Black people are NOT “The Faces of Coronavirus” due to any underlying fucking medical conditions and these debased white shits know that. The reasons why Black people are “The Faces of Coronavirus” deaths is due to our jobs in that we are frontline workers and also the fact of racism. Tell me this. If a Black woman and a white man both went to the hospital in the same condition, coronavirus infected, tell me, which one would get the last remaining ventilator? But what’s even worse is that when Black people have gone to the hospital with coronavirus symptoms, they have been told to go home and take a goddamn aspirin. Even when they went to the hospital multiple times, they were still told to get out of the hospital and guess what. They fucking died! And the cause of death? COVID-19. But the REAL and TRUE cause of death was RACISM and don’t you ALL fucking know this!

So, while Black folks were sitting somewhere paying the white man for the dubious pleasure of watching Marvel and Disney’s version of “The Black Panther,” your asses were being set up. While Black folks were sitting somewhere in Asian-owned nail salons getting their fucking nails done, your asses were being set up. While Black women were running inside Asian-owned beauty supply stores, your asses were being set up. While Black people were lined up and fighting over chicken sandwiches at Popeye’s, your asses were being set up. While Black people were online buying the latest brand name in sneakers and apparel owned by whites and pimped by Blacks like Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Cardi B, Kanye West, P. Diddy and all of the other Black sell-outs, your asses were being set up. While Black folks were busy perusing Amazon, making Jeff Bezos even more richer than he already is, your asses were being set up. But you know what? Your asses were warned and you paid no heed and now, you are paying for that shit, BIG TIME! You are being touted as “The Faces of Coronavirus.” And when you’re not being touted as “The Faces of Coronavirus,” you’re being touted as “The Faces of the Hungry.’ You’re being touted as the “Faces of the Unemployed.” You’re being touted as “The Faces of the Homeless.” In Georgia, in Louisiana, in Michigan, in Ohio, in New York, in Washington, DC, Maryland and elsewhere, Black people are the faces of ALL of that and then some and what is being done about it? NOTHING!

But don’t a goddamn one of you say that you weren’t warned because you were, you just paid no heed and now, you’re paying the piper. I am so very sorry to know that the Black folks who were woke, died decades ago because what we’ve got now are “The Walking Dead” because you always underestimate your enemy. You want to be entertained and dolled up with fake ass shit..and to do what???!!! Go to your death, that’s what. Yeah! I’m sure the dead ALL look nice in their coffin, still with some fake ass weave in and fake ass nails on and probably still smelling like kung pao chicken. And I bet, GOFUNDME funds had to pay for the fucking funeral.

As for the whites, don’t you pasty fucks even think about grinning and believing that you’ve done us in while saving your worthless hides because you’ll soon be jumping out of thirty story hotel windows and even those whores and whoremongers in Hollywood are going to be doing the same because who is going to get next to whom and kiss and slob down in those goddamn dumb ass movies? What cooking show is going to have some damn contestants running around dripping sweat and coronavirus into dishes that’s going to be served to some damn judges that used to own restaurants that have now been closed because millions are still going to refuse to step foot inside a restaurant and even those that remain open for curbside pickup are not going to see the traffic that dine in restaurants saw.

When the casinos reopen, how many are going to be allowed inside to sit next to one another hoping that a slot machine pays out? And when ALL the hair salons and nail salons and barbershops open back up, how many are going to contract coronavirus from those shops? Already some Black women are getting clued in and are buying fake nails and learning how to put them on and are claiming that they are no longer going to head inside a nail salon. Some Black women are claiming that they are going to do their cousin’s hair so that they don’t have to go back inside a hair salon. That’s what you should have been doing all along. But as usual, I digress.

Back to the whites. So whites, tell me, how long do you think that you can hold out when it comes to getting your shit fully back up and running? Oh, you’ve got the money now to wait this shit out, but that’s not going to last. Some of you have already had your shit buckle and we all know that MONEY and POWER is everything to you and without it, you are NOTHING! So, coronavirus won’t need to take your debased asses out, you’ll gladly do yourselves in because you cannot do poverty AT.ALL. When your businesses fail and even bailout money is of no help, what are you going to do then? We ALL know the answer to that!

Black people may have been caught up in the first wave of this virus, but know this whites, your ass is grass, as well. Coronavirus is coming for your ass in a different way; it’s going to hit you where it hurts; your pocket, your business. So you just keep thinking that Black people are going to continue to be “The Faces of Coronavirus,” but your turn is coming. Even in an upscale area of New Jersey, the whites were lined up at a food bank while still sitting in their fancy, expensive cars. What sense does that make? Ever the ones to try and hold on to your status symbols even as you sit in line and wait your turn to collect some free cabbage and potatoes from a food bank. The fallout from this virus has not even begun to impact your ass, but it will. So you sit somewhere and think that you are going to be okay because just when you think that all has returned to normal, you’ll soon be thinking differently. Mark my words.

And finally, Black folks, I’m done with your asses as well. I have been silent on here because I have ordered me a slew of books and I’m going to get to reading and so this blog will be closed. None of you would take heed of a goddamn thing that had nothing to do with fun and games and entertainment. Well, I don’t think that it is very entertaining to be without a job, food, a home and sitting somewhere sick. Has fake ass ‘Wakanda’s Black Panther’ come to the rescue? Is that dashiki and African head wrap you put on, helping you deal with the shit that’s going down now? Those fake nails have long since fallen off and the weave is now either dreaded or has long since been discarded as you try and head for a food bank, for those of you who can still maneuver and have not fallen ill. Again, you were warned and you paid no heed. I’m done because just like Tom Joyner said when he signed off on his radio show, “Black America was more woke 50 years ago. Today we are not woke at all.” Well now, you get to sleep the sleep of death.

….And Coronavirus Continues To Expose What I Already Knew…..

..in that racist whites continue to flaunt their white privilege and self declared ‘white supremacy’ in demanding that they be allowed onto beaches, into bars and that the party must restart despite the Trump Administration’s own medical expert stating otherwise. Despite the fact that Dr. Fauci stated, ‘It’s going to backfire’: Fauci says anti-quarantine protesters could prolong shutdown.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the leading experts in the White House’s response to the coronavirus, warned demonstrations happening across the country protesting the quarantine orders will prolong the shutdown period.

“If you jump the gun and go into a situation where you have a big spike, you’re gonna set yourself back,” he continued. “So as painful as it is to go by the careful guidelines of gradually phasing into a reopening, it’s going to backfire. That’s the problem.”

Meanwhile, whites took to the beaches in Florida and in South Carolina since those states have loosened ‘stay at home’ guidelines. And every picture that I have seen has been that of whites, overtaking beaches during a pandemic that is far from over and that has been extremely deadly for front line workers who have mostly been American descendants of slavery. You see, while we are standing somewhere on an Amazon warehouse floor, contracting COVID-19 to send a white asshole some goddamn nail polish, we are contracting COVID-19 and dying. While we are front line workers at hospitals, treating COVID-19 patients of ALL stripes, we are also contracting this deadly contagion and are dying while the whites are now at the beach or are protesting that THEIR rights are being infringed upon because they need to get to the beach and to their vacation homes and to the bars, concerts, ballparks and casinos.

Meanwhile, health care workers in Colorado are protesting against protesters who are protesting the lockdown. Health care workers are positioning themselves in the middle of the street to protest against the reopening of this shithole that’s filled with white lunatics with the lunatic-in-chief, Donald Trump, leading the charge.

This shithole is going off the deep end because of what this shithole contains; rabid, racist, insane white lunatics who happen to be Trump’s supporters, down to the very last one, whom he is egging on with his “LIBERATE” tweets aimed at states that had pushed back on his ‘reopening Amerikkka’ calls which when this so-called ‘reopening’ occurs, will have a disastrous effect in the form of ever increasing coronavirus related illnesses and deaths.

So, while the whites are celebrating at the beach or protesting because they don’t mind coming down with coronavirus since they feel that their civil liberties are being infringed upon, another Black family in Alabama is being showcased in the continuing saga of “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths In America!” Nine family members tested positive for COVID-19, of which three have already died. And as if that is not bad enough, another news report is stating that Michigan’s youngest COVID-19 victim, who of course is Black, is 5-year old Skylar Herbert. Skylar died late Sunday night after being taken off a ventilator for suspected loss of brain activity since as a result of contracting COVID-19, she developed a rare form of meningitis and brain swelling.

This dead child’s parents are mourning her death even while racists are protesting that they should have the right to get a haircut, go to the beach, the bar, the nail salon, the casino, the strip club, the ballgame and everyone else is just around to clean up their goddamn mess; meaning American descendants of slavery!

Black people…..SERIOUSLY!!!! I am too through!!! That racist governor of New York even stated that American descendants of slavery are the faces of coronavirus deaths in New York because they are the front line workers; they are the hospital workers. Why oh why are we always the ones who are willing to die for no account, no good, worthless, racist ass, hating whites??!!! Why must we ALWAYS sacrifice ourselves for their no account asses? You see that they don’t give a shit about you or yours? They don’t have a heart, a soul, a conscience, empathy, compassion, morality or even humanity and yet, we are somewhere putting our lives on the line for their damn worthless asses to continue to suck air while we breathe our last. What fucking sense does that make? You are under no obligation to continue to bag groceries for some shits whose only thought is to take that shit to the goddamn beach and lie out and tan. They ain’t thinking about COVID-19 because they know that your ass is too willing to come down with that shit and die taking care of their fucked up, pasty asses as they play and drink and gamble and do whatever the fuck they want to do.

As seriously as many Black people are taking this shit and still, we are “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths???!!!” To hell with that shit! You need to sit your ass down and refuse to continue to put yourselves on the front lines for some shits that ain’t even worth it! What have you got to lose? We have long since been the faces of poverty, homelessness, unemployment, gentrification, health disparities and the list is endless and now, we want to continue to be “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths???!!! HELP.ONE.ANOTHER.OUT., during this time and we won’t have to stand somewhere until we are declared, “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths!” What will it take to get through to you? These whites ain’t fucking worth it! I cannot state that often enough! They don’t give a damn about us. Why should we give a damn about them? I’m torn all to pieces that I’ve got family in the health care field putting their lives on the line for these deranged pasty assholes because I damn sure as hell would NOT! If those filthy white bastards counted on me to try and save their filthy, debased hides, they’d be some dead motherfuckers because they’re a thankless, fucked up lot! To hell with them! Look out for yourselves in this time of a pandemic crisis that’s not going anywhere. Hell! You know what type of president this shithole has. Those whites elected his ass, but we’re the ones who are dying because we’ve always got to do the menial labor; we’ve always got to care…about whites???!!!!! Not fucking hardly! Stop doing that shit!!!! Wake the hell up before more and more of you are the headlines of various news outlets about who just died and how many in this family and that family of this COVID-19 virus that’s not fucking playing. Whites don’t have to take this shit seriously because they know that they can ALWAYS hide behind our Black asses, AND THEY DO! That’s why those worthless, no account fuckers are at the beach right now, because they know that you are going to step in and try and save their worthless, goddamn hides, WHEN, not if they come down with coronavirus. I fucking would NOT be standing there waiting for someone to drag their virus laden asses to my fucking hospital floor. Hell fucking no! Grow some damn balls and head out the door and fucking refuse to continue to be on the front lines of this pandemic since you know you don’t even have an adequate supply of masks and other safety essentials. That is goddamn madness!

I am fucking livid, enraged and some more shit that we continue to make ourselves available to be used and abused by white assed motherfuckers that mean us nothing but harm. We don’t matter to them and they sure as hell should not matter to us. I fucking spent two hours on the goddamn phone today speaking with those white assholes about getting an appointment for my cousin to see a neurologist because he can’t fucking sleep and I’m being told that ALL doctors are seeing patients via telephone call or facetime or some such nonsense and that since no one is able to go into the office, they have not even gotten around to referrals because my cousin’s primary care doctor referred him to a neurologist and they have no clue as to when referred patients are even going to receive a phone call telling them when they can get a phone call or a facetime setup with a doctor. This shit ain’t fucking funny and yet the whites are out there screeching about how they want to go to the beach, the bar and the casino while no one can even get a doctor’s appointment because they’re all terrified of contracting this virus. I even called my Endocrinologist and she is doing the same thing; either phoning patients or facetiming them. So if someone’s got a suspicious mole on their ass, too damn bad. That’s not an emergency. Wait until you can be seen in person or, I don’t know, you may be able to pull your goddamn pants down and expose the suspicious mole during that facetime shit! And some goddamn doctor at a hospital is wondering where are all the heart attack, stroke, aneurysm and cancer patients??!!! They are fucking dead, ASSHOLE because they can’t even get in to see a doctor because of this coronavirus madness and yet this dumb fuck is wondering why there are not patients of that sort in hospitals anymore. Get the fuck outta here with that foolish bullshit!

For this shithole to have been declared the richest country on the planet, a goddamn virus has rendered this shithole entirely useless! It has also exposed this shithole for the racist shithole that it has always been and always will be. There is nothing exceptional about how this pandemic is being handled over here. The only reason some people are demanding to go back to work is because they are so damn broke, they’ve overwhelmed the food banks, while at the same time, the comfortably off whites and the wealthy whites are able to ride this shit out or demand that it reopen because they are fucking bored. What kind of shit is that? On the one hand, you’ve got people lined up in numbers never seen before at food banks while on the other hand, you’ve got white assholes demanding to be allowed to go to the beach and get infected while also infecting others with a lethal virus while the president of this shithole condones the latter with fucking tweets talking about “LIBERATE!” WHAT.THE.HELL. I hope the rest of the world is taking note of this chaos, pandemonium, bedlam and stupid ass, ridiculous shit that IS AMERIKKKA! Why the hell would you try and emulate this shit???!!!!

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!

 

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

Black History Holds NO Fame!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

Slashing Food Stamps Hurts The Poor And Their Supermarkets

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

I Heave A Sigh!

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

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

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

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

…..I heave a sigh!!!

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

…..I heave a sigh!!!

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

 

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

Of Dr. King, We Are Just So Proud!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

shelbycourtland’s response:

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

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

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

I thank you for your comment.

And another great comment I thought I should add.

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

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

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

shelbycourtland’s response:

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

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

Thank you for your comment N.S.

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

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

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

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