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

 

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

Of Dr. King, We Are Just So Proud!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

shelbycourtland’s response:

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

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

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

I thank you for your comment.

And another great comment I thought I should add.

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

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

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

shelbycourtland’s response:

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

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

Thank you for your comment N.S.

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Only A Sea Of Black Faces In A Homeless Shelter In Washington D.C. Partaking Of A ‘Thanksgiving’ Meal: The Whites Continued War Against American Descendants Of Slaves

Back when I was growing up, we used to visit our relatives who had moved from Virginia to Washington, DC. We would get in cars and an entire caravan of us would head to D.C. for family get-togethers. It was called, “Lynchburg Day” because many of those who once called Lynchburg home moved to Washington, D.C. Those of us who remained behind in Lynchburg were always considered to be “The country cousins.”

I remember looking around the park where the event, “Lynchburg Day” took place and I noticed that there were so many Black people having a great time, barbecuing steaks on the grill; huge steaks. I saw ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs; the whole nine yards. The adults were having fun talking while us kids had the run of the park. No one was sitting around talking about homelessness or drug addiction or prostitution or gang activity; not any of that stuff and year after year, we would get into the cars and head to D.C. for fun and laughter with family and friends.

But something changed. Something or ‘someone’ or someTHING put an end to ALL of that. I started hearing about drugs and gangs and homelessness and prostitution and then there were no more trips to Washington, D.C. for “Lynchburg Day.” Families did not behave like families anymore. Things changed and I wondered about that because though I did know that the only constant is change, I figured that family was family and we’d all continue to treat each other as family like we used to. Nope, didn’t happen.

Fast forward to the news out of Washington, D.C. today and well, things are even worse than ever.

At a homeless shelter in D.C., a special — but bittersweet — Thanksgiving meal

Marc O’Brien was panicking.

Like millions across the country, he was in charge of preparing a Thanksgiving meal. But instead of a family or party, he stood to disappoint 400 men — many of them ravenous, some who had not eaten in days. At the Central Union Mission homeless shelter in downtown D.C., this was the most important meal of the year.

D.C. has one of the highest rates of homelessness in the country.

This is truly sad, truly sad. Washington, D.C. was once known as “Chocolate City” and now it has been gentrified and those who once called “Chocolate City” home are homeless thanks to whites coming in and tearing down rental housing that Black people at one time could afford, but who are now finding that they must move on. Black people who once owned homes in Washington, D.C., are elderly and many have passed on just like those in my daddy’s family. My daddy’s aunt used to work for the Pentagon and she owned her own home. Her daughter owned a condo in Southeast D.C. When my daddy’s aunt died, her daughter and her son sold her house and her daughter also sold her condo and moved back to Lynchburg where she recently passed away.

What I have noticed is that with the passing of the ‘old guard’, the ‘new guard’ is not faring so well. It’s like the whites were waiting on just the right time when the Black folks who were once out in the streets protesting during the Civil Rights Movement and who were responsible for successfully boycotting to get things done started getting up in age and passing on, that is when they put a new plan in action and now, it is the beginning of the end.

Everyone has been dumbed down, made lazy, apathetic and complacent by all the new technology that this generation has embraced even as the older generation would never have because they would have known better.

And so we come to this!

Richard Bell, 53, said he appreciates the effort that staff puts into the event but hopes that after two years at the shelter, this will be his last Thanksgiving here.

After losing his job in 2011, Bell fell into alcoholism and stopped being able to afford his rental apartment in Charles County, Md. His wife and daughter moved in with other family, and Bell moved into a hotel, where he attempted suicide.

Black people, once seen as strong, are now attempting suicide as a way out of the despair of being descendants of slaves in a land that never accepted us, never included us in any bill of rights, constitutional documents or anything else that gave whites all the rights to freedom, justice and the pursuit of happiness. And their happiness is at the expense of millions of American descendants of slaves who are here through no fault of our own. I have stated this before and I state it again, this is ALL done by design. None of this is by accident.

If you look down through the annals of history, you can see a pattern developing. Every single time it seemed that Black people would be able to stand on their own, the whites pulled the rug from underneath us. We built our own cities. We owned our own businesses. We had our own Wall Street. We had our Movements and what happened? The whites put an end to all of that and now look where we are; sitting up in a homeless shelter partaking of a ‘Thanksgiving’ meal and getting noticed on one day out of a 365 day year. We are touted out to have a camera pointed at us and told to smile for the camera just as our slave ancestors were stood up on auction blocks and had their ‘finer points’ pointed out to potential buyers, stripped of any dignity then as we are now because some white mission owner is preparing a meal for the poor homeless Black people who cannot make it in this white man’s reclaimed swamp once known as “Chocolate City” that at one point in time had a beloved Black mayor, who was set up by the whites, Mayor Marion Barry.

And though Washington, D.C. has a Black female mayor, Mayor Muriel Bowser, she is quite obviously, just a figurehead for what is she doing for those Black people who refuse to leave their home, Washington, D.C. even though they can no longer afford to live there? She is doing the same nothing as her counterpart a mere few miles up the road in Baltimore, MD for his Black constituents. Make no mistake, just because you see a Black face in what you would think is a position of leadership, you couldn’t be more wrong. Just ask the recently disgraced and scandal embroiled former Mayor of Baltimore, MD, Catherine Pugh, who is awaiting sentencing for her “Healthy Holly” books shenanigans. Whites played a role in her downfall, but Pugh is the only one who is taking the fall, just as deceased former Mayor Marion Barry was set up by the whites to take a fall.

Black folks, what I am trying to say to you is that we are ALL being setup by the whites to take the fall for the shit that they have done. Our lives, from cradle to grave, is a setup. We are setup to fail especially if we are outspoken and refuse to play by the white man’s rules. If you step out of line, you are dealt with, severely. Believe me, I know. Many of us know and that is why millions of us are six feet under because we refused to take the white’s shit and act like we like it. With nothing to lose, why do we still shuffle our feet and bow our heads around the whites. No amount of shucking and jiving, no amount of “Yessum boss! Yessum massa!” is going to help our situation because the whites are depraved and insane and have always been out for our blood since the first one captured our ancestors and dragged them to these shores. They have never been our friends and they will never be our friends. This you must understand, accept and act accordingly.

Some Black people look at a few Black folks who the whites have favored with fame and fortune and they think that those people are the lucky ones. Uh…no..that is so NOT true. Look at what happens when even Black people of means, somehow draw the ire of the whites who once propped them up. They tear them down; quick, fast and in a damn hurry. Look at what they did to Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Lauryn Hill, Wesley Snipes and the list is endless.

There is no man more deviant, debased and depraved than the white man and yet, what white man is sitting behind bars for what the whites claim Bill Cosby and R. Kelly has done? What happened to the #MeToo shit? Whites merely snap their finger and that shit goes away while we get put away behind bars. And whites will ‘suicide’ other whites to keep their pedophilia and sex trafficking scandals under wraps.

Like 2Pac’s lyrics say, “We ain’t meant to survive, cause it’s a set-up.” And believe me when I say this, “The whites? They ain’t never gonna let up.” Just look at the above picture. All you see is a sea of Black faces; all homeless and sitting in a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving Day, eating a donated ‘Thanksgiving’ meal with cameras surrounding them, on display for ALL to see that the white man still has to feed his “slaves.”

These Folks Won’t Be Celebrating “Indian Extermination Day,” But Then Most Of Them Never Celebrated It Anyway

 

A high rise apartment fire yesterday morning took the lives of 5 people, most of whom were ‘refugees’/immigrants from Somalia.

5 Killed After Fire Breaks Out In Minneapolis High-Rise Building In Cedar-Riverside

The Minneapolis Fire Department says five people are dead and another three are hospitalized after fire broke out at a 24-story high rise overnight in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.

Fire crews extinguished the three-alarm fire, which happened on the 600 block of Cedar Avenue South, in approximately 30 minutes. It was reported at about 4 a.m. inside a public housing building owned by the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority. The fire broke out on the 14th floor of the 191-unit structure.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office released the names of four of the five victims early Wednesday evening, all cited as dying from smoke inhalation:

  • Amatalah Adam, 78

  • Maryan Mohamed Mohamud, 69

  • Nadifa Mohamud, 67

  • Jerome Stuart, 59

That building houses, almost exclusively, Somali so-called, ‘refugees’ as does most of the public housing high rises and other types of apartments and townhomes in Minnesota. Ninety-nine percent of ALL affordable housing in Minneapolis is occupied by those from Somalia. This is why those of us who were born here and who paid taxes in this shithole cannot get up out of homelessness because all of the affordable housing units have been given to people who boarded a plane and were brought here to sit all up on our tax dollars while our people walk the streets, homeless.

I was just in Minnesota earlier this month and I stayed at a homeless shelter for one night and so I can tell you that the only people who were sitting all up in that homeless shelter were descendants of slaves and some poor whites. There was not ONE Somali refugee/immigrant sitting all up in there enduring homelessness and some more shit. And so I would dearly love for someone to explain to me why it is that those of us who have fallen on hard times and need assistance cannot receive that assistance because our government is busy assisting, with our tax dollars, folks that the government has dragged, willingly, over to this shithole?

And so read this!

Here are the average rents and vacancy rates for various rental housing floor plan options in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. The information is provided by Marquette Advisors’ first-quarter review of rental properties, for the months January through March 2019.

Minneapolis Three Den/Four+ 83 12 $4,871 14.5%

People working low wage jobs cannot afford those rents and many, many people in Minneapolis have to have roommates just to make ends meet. I have heard horror stories of roommates stealing everything not nailed down and leaving in the middle of the night. There are so many people who have had horrible experiences just trying to be housed, it is beyond ridiculous!

If this is the season of charity and some more shit, then charity begins at home. You cannot state that there is a homeless epidemic of monstrous proportions among natural born citizens of this shithole and then cross an ocean to drag others here and ‘house’ them while stepping over those who were born here and who are working, but who cannot afford the cost of skyrocketing rents. How does that make any goddamn sense at all?

While I was in Minnesota, I saw an Indian man try and board a city bus and the poor man was pushing a dilapidated walker up onto the bus and the walker was too short for him and at the same time, he was trying to keep his pants up, but the poor man’s pants fell down and his leg was almost completely covered in blood. He must have fallen, hurt himself and was trying to get to a hospital via a bus. Some guy was trying to help him get on the bus when from the back of the bus, a Latino yelled, “What’s the holdup?” Seriously? What’s the holdup? I yelled back at him, “The police station is right across the street, I’m going to call them and ask them to check your immigration papers, how’s that for a holdup?” He shut the fuck up!

A Black man tried to help the Indian man up on the bus and the bus driver told the Indian man to pull his pants up and asked him where he was going. The Indian man stated that he was trying to get to the hospital. The bus driver told him that he was going in the wrong direction. And so the Indian man started to get off the bus and I just wanted to cry.

The Black man who had helped him stated that “he was just a bum.” I said, “Seriously? That man is a human being. He is someone’s father, son, brother, uncle and you sit there and say that when you know what we go through. Are you serious?” He then hemmed and hawed and shut the fuck up. But even still, when he got up to exit the bus, I thanked him for helping the Indian man off the bus and the bus driver did as well.

What the hell is wrong with us when we see nothing wrong with whites dragging others asses over here and put them above those whose land they stole in the first place, and will also put them over those whose ancestors were dragged over here, kicking and screaming?

If anyone should be housed by the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority, it should be the Indians and American descendants of slaves. If there are any available affordable housing units left, then the whites can drag whomever they want to drag over to this shithole, but you take care of your own first. You don’t grab someone from a foreign land, put them on a plane and then put them in public housing while passing by homeless Indians and American descendants of slaves. And believe me, the only people who are in homeless shelters are American descendants of slaves and a few poor whites who have been deemed worthless by other whites. That is all I saw in the homeless shelter I stayed in for one night.

So, if you think that those who burned to death in that high rise apartment fire were just, coincidentally, mostly Somali, think again. The majority of those housed by our tax dollars are Somali. American descendants of slaves and Indians need not apply. Last year, an Indian woman, Pamela Rivera died because she was in a homeless encampment in Minneapolis. Why wasn’t she in this fucking building? This land was hers. Why did Somalis take precedence over a woman whose land was stolen from her by whitey pasty-ass? Did you read that? Pamela Rivera, an Indian; an Indigenous woman died in a homeless encampment because no one could find housing for her and yet as you can see, whites dragged willing Somalis over here and put them in affordable housing high rises while Pamela Rivera, an INDIAN, was somewhere struggling to get through homelessness and she didn’t make it. What fucking sense does this make???? But you are sitting somewhere on your ass eating a dead bird and talking about how we should ALL be thankful???!!!! Fucking get the fuck outta here with THAT bullshit! Yeah! Tell that fucking shit to Pamela Rivera about how she should be thankful that this land that her people owned was stolen by the likes of you pasty-assed fuckers and how she should be so thankful that she is now six feet under thanks to said pasty-assed fuckers dragging goddamn Somalis over here and housing them while leaving the Pamela Riveras to make it or NOT and she did NOT!

And so no, I do not weep for those dead Somalis because they had no goddamn business over here when we have a homeless crisis of the magnitude that we have. But don’t take my word for who is homeless, just look at videos of interviews of the homeless and that will clue you in and newsflash, you will NEVER see someone interviewing one of those ‘refugees’ from Somalia. But Trump’s base is sitting somewhere listening to his lies about how he is cracking down on those who are let into this country. If that were the case, he’d be sending those who are here, packing. That would help to at least put a dent in the wait list for affordable housing units because refugees are given preferential treatment and so they get the affordable housing slots that are paid for by our tax dollars.

Again, it makes no sense to know that we have a homeless epidemic, but this country is dragging ‘refugees’ over here and giving them the few remaining affordable housing units while moaning and whining that they don’t know what to do about the issue of mass homelessness all across this country. Seriously? Stop dragging people from other countries over here, feeding them, housing them, clothing them, giving them access to free health care and free housing that’s paid for by those of us who are now homeless and some more shit. For starters, that’s what the fuck you can do!

And you can call me an insensitive asshole until the cows come home, go back out and come back home again, I don’t fucking care! Someone has to say what needs saying and I am damn well going to be that someone. I am tired of this shit! Those news reporters who reported on this story know the goddamn truth, but do they ever report the truth? Hell fucking no! Only people like me try and get the truth out there while the ‘powers that be’ consistently try and shut us down, push what we say to the side because the truth of what’s going down is ugly as maggot coated shit!

Homelessness ain’t no fucking joke! Believe me, I tried it and it ain’t a fucking picnic or a cake walk. And if things don’t start getting better, which they’re not, many of us are headed in that direction and, AGAIN, believe me, you really don’t want to go there!

As you can see, I did not lie when I stated that the majority of those who are represented in that high rise are Somalis. How many ADOS do you see? Keep looking.

Are there any ADOS in this next picture?

Nope! No ADOS there!

What about here?

No ADOS there either. You see, this is why ADOS are heavily represented in homeless shelters and are in there being treated like shit!

What about this next picture. Any ADOS in this one?

Nope, No ADOS in this one either. Somalis only need apply. ADOS report to homeless shelters.

And this shit continues!

More Somalis and they are about all you’re going to see standing in the building, coming out of the building or going into the building. AGAIN, as you can see, no American descendants of slaves need apply and believe me, Minneapolis has a serious homelessness epidemic but the Somalis are not caught up in homelessness. How is this right? They take preference over those who were BORN here!

And again!

Really? I will continue to expose this shit for what it is, preferential treatment for those who were flown over here as opposed to those whose ancestors were dragged over here, kicking and screaming. Whites want American descendants of slaves fucked up and some more shit and I re-state, I will continue to put this shit out there, front and center, goddamn it!

And so no, I don’t give a damn for these motherfuckers! I don’t give a damn for the whites who put this shit into play because they want to make sure that American descendants of slaves are out on the mean streets of these shitty ass cities, dying and some more shit! This is ALL done by design as you can plainly see.

Those shits in the above pictures had absofuckinglutely NOTHING when they boarded a plane in Somalia and were flown over here and so you tell me how they ended up taking over high rise apartment buildings, you tell me how they ended up owning and operating not one, but two malls in Minneapolis. You tell me how they own their own medical facilities. You tell me how they have been able to own and operate multiple restaurants. White pasty ass is behind THAT shit! Thousands of them still don’t even speak English and so you tell me how this was done! They are allowed to take the driving exam in THEIR language. Ain’t no goddamn road signs in Somali. American descendants of slaves are standing in the cold waiting on a bus while those pus head Somalis drive by them, splashing them and some more shit in minivans and SUVs; motherfuckers that came over here with not a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out, who can’t even speak the language and yet, they are doing better than millions of American descendants of slaves.  And they will continue to do so because it is what whitey pasty ass wants. Every other motherfucker on this planet is quite welcome to step on us, step over us while we are treated like shit, day in and day out. I am paying market rate rent. I am not on Section 8 or living in subsidized housing and look at what my fucking apartment looks like.

The government is not helping me pay for that and yet Somalis are sitting all up in high rise apartments when those slugs only had to crawl down out of a tree, hop on a plane and get housed. They’d probably never even heard of a toilet before getting on a goddamn plane. Hell! That goddamn building they live in, on fire, looks better than what I live in and the white slumlord even went up on the rent in the middle of my lease and I had to take his ass to court, but as you can see, the whites are fighting for those Somali motherfuckers, but American descendants of slaves? Fucking hell no! We are fighting every goddamn day just to exist in this shithole that our ancestors were dragged to. We are the ones who are the first to get fired and the last to get hired; the first to lose health insurance while our tax dollars are paying for some refugee/immigrants health care. What.the.fuck. Yeah! We got so goddamn much to be thankful for and if you believe that, then I’ve got some great beach front property for sale in Death Valley!

From The Archives: “Happy Indian Extermination Day!” Don’t Think For A Minute That I Am Going To Spout Ignorance About THIS Day!

 

 

Cut the bullshit! Call a spade, a spade. Quit dancing around the truth! The truth is that ignorant, stupid, greedy Americans celebrate a day that pays homage to some bullshit about how ‘murdering pilgrims colonizers and Indians celebrated their great relationship with a feast because the Indians were just so thankful that a group of pasty-asses crawled ashore, knowing fuck all about this land and yet, somehow, managed to overcome scurvy and syphilis, small pox and some more shit to feed the original inhabitants after having chased turkeys all over the goddamn place, caught some and then I guess, cooked them over an open fire and the contributions of the grateful Indians was to hand over some ‘Indian corn’ whereupon, everyone sat down and partook of an excellent meal. After the meal, the Indians were slaughtered as well and the confiscation of their land began. Immigration laws? What immigration laws? Who the hell needed a damn passport? “We is WHITE and so we is RIGHT to kill, steal and oh hell, we need some slaves! There ain’t enough Indians left and they’re all hiding in the hills, the few that’s not on reservations. Let’s crawl back into those ships and head back out. Goddamn! There they are! Look lively there! Haul ’em aboard, Black-assed motherfuckers, that they are! Get over here! Prime specimens. Great for breeding purposes and for fucking. We done hit the mother load! Hot damn!”

Ain’t that about it? Have I fucking lied? Hell no! Board that plane to see Aunt Jan and the rest of the “Klan” and enjoy a big ole turkey meal with all the trimmings. I remember last year there was some problem with the turkeys and there was a recall. Apparently, tryptophan and salmonella just shouldn’t mix. Neither should pilgrim colonizers and Indians when one intends to exterminate the other, but that’s what happened and so dig in! And I sincerely hope that there will be another recall this year AFTER you greedy fuckers have gorged yourselves to hell and back. I hope you greedy, gluttonous motherfuckers moan and whine and shit your pants on your way out the door for the ‘early bird’ specials thanks to salmonella induced diarrhea . It would serve you ignorant motherfuckers right!

Of course everyone has just simply forgotten or more likely, chose to ignore the fact that the oh so grateful Indians on those lovely Hallmark cards alongside those murdering pasty-faced colonizers never existed because the bullshit that you believe is an outrageous lie, but you love lies because then you don’t have to face the truth because it’s ugly and you don’t like ugly. That is why you prefer that the truth be ‘whitewashed’, sugarcoated and some mo shit! Yeah! Let’s put it out there that everyone got along just like we do today, is that it? Who the fuck is getting along? Oh, we are going to see some pictures of some long lines at airports because, once again, we’ve got to live the lie. We’ve got to pretend that everything is hunky dory and that we are just so grateful to spend time with family we secretly despise and detest, but since we are told that on Thanksgiving, we are to ‘pretend’ if need be that we are thankful for family and friends and big, groaning tables full of ‘cardiac arrest’, then we will, such dutiful, obedient sheep, are we. And the tree is already decorated over in the corner just waiting on those expensive presents, all beautifully gift wrapped to be placed underneath it and you’ve already got your shopping strategy mapped out. Plane lands, met by drunk Uncle Jack, who farts and belches his way back to Aunt Jane’s house where there’s a bunch of folks knocking back alcohol and you swear you see, out of the corner of your eye, Uncle Jack’s wife giving Uncle David, a ‘come hither’ look. Then it’s kiss and hug everyone time and insincere utterances of “how nice to see you and oh, don’t you look lovely in that sweater” which you secretly think is uglier than Aunt Jane’s face. Tomorrow, it’s take half an hour to ‘give thanks’ and out the door for the “Door buster sales” you go! And you will kick, beat and scratch your way all over the store for yet ANOTHER TV, smartphone and anything else to distract you from the truth!

Oh, we are so good at pretense and we are even better at doing what we have been programmed to do without thought. You are told to celebrate “Thanksgiving” on the fourth Thursday of every November and you do it. You are told what to eat on that day and you eat it even if it means a salmonella diagnosis with you shitting and puking at the same time. You are told to shop the next day or in some cases, just as soon as you clean your plate and you do it. You don’t see anything wrong with this picture, do you? Of course you don’t because thinking for yourself is a novelty; patently unheard of and you wouldn’t dare stand alone, conformist that you are. Buck the trend? Who you? NEVER! Those who write the script for you to follow can count on you and millions of others to do exactly as you are told, without question and you do it. And those who write the script have made damn sure that they keep the truth in check. Who needs to be continuously fed the truth in that “Thanksgiving” is a fucking lie, a travesty and a tragedy. I know one thing, your ass would never drive through an Indian reservation and see the devastation, hopelessness, despair and abject poverty. Hell! That’s not on the way to your shopping spree!

You think ALL Indians are living the good life thanks to casino gambling and so what the fuck do you have to consider their plight for? Let me clear one thing up right now. The majority of Indians get no revenue from gaming; only a select few. The majority spend their short lives living in poverty and many are homeless since reservation life is beyond intolerable. They are still just as addicted to ‘firewater’ today as they were when the first pasty-faced shits gave them that, supposedly, in exchange for their land. And I am so naïve as to believe that the land your house sits own, you bartered for it with the bank. You gave the bank manager cases of liquor and he gave you the deed to your house. I mean, what was good enough for the Indians should be good enough for that pasty-faced bank manager, shouldn’t it? Fuck no! Yeah! Take a case of liquor to a bank and state that you intend to exchange that for a nice, prime piece of land on which to build you a home. That’s going to go over real well.

So no, it’s not “Happy Thanksgiving!” It’s “Happy” Indian Extermination Day! That’s the goddamn truth because Indians are still dying because they are homeless to this very day. Go ahead and wish Pamela Rivera, a “Happy Thanksgiving!” She can’t hear you because she just died in a homeless tent city in Minnesota while waiting on some affordable housing to open up. But I am sure that when she was alive, she was eternally grateful when “Thanksgiving” came around each and every November.

Fox 9 Investigators: A death in tent city

“My name is Pamela Rivera and we are at a homeless camp,” she can be heard saying in a video that was posted on Facebook. “We just call it tent town for natives.”

Pamela Rivera, an Indian, DIED in a homeless camp, assholes. So I guess in YOUR eyes, she should have had much to be ‘thankful’ for! Puke your fucking guts out after eating a goddamn heaping helping of salmonella. Shit until your asshole burns and crap yourself ALL the fucking way to Walmart, why doncha!

The plight of her people was consigned to the garbage while we celebrate lies, lies and damned lies! But remember this, what comes around, goes around. There are many who are still homeless down in Florida thanks to Hurricane Michael and the same is going down in California thanks to those wildfires that are still raging. I hear tell that many will be spending “Thanksgiving” in a tent city in a Walmart parking lot. Oh wait! They are being moved to some fairgrounds due to inclement weather. I remember seeing pictures of tents set up in parking lots of shopping centers awaiting store openings. Well, this year, some of those tents will contain those whose homes have burned to the ground. Karma is a bitch, ain’t it?

Dude in the above picture is just beyond perplexed at his situation here in America.

“I never thought I’d live in a tent city,” said Mr. Winter, 39, a Marine Corps veteran and software developer who had recently emerged from a stretch of homelessness, only to lose everything he owned in the devastating Camp Fire, the deadliest California wildfire on record. “I mean, this is America; we’re not supposed to live this way. But here we are, man, the new normal.”

Translation:

“I am WHITE! What the fuck am I doing living out of a tent in a field at Walmart? I am a WHITE Marine Corps vet, who you should be bending over backwards thanking for my service killing people that I didn’t even know….AND…..I am a software developer and even though I was homeless before becoming homeless AGAIN, this shit ain’t supposed to happen to ME! I’m WHITE! What about that can you people not understand? I am WHITE, goddamn it! And fucking hey! I voted for Donald “Make America Great Again!” Trump but this bullshit ain’t fucking great! Get me some help and get me some help now! Fuck this shit man, I AM WHITE!”

Jarrad Winter, welcome to Pamela Rivera’s world! Oh, and “Happy Indian Extermination Day!” Ain’t karma, a bitch?

Whites Don’t Like It When Faced With The Truth

Below is a comment I received on the post, “Opinion:America’s Chickens Are Coming Home To Roost(For The Last Time)Kreb Talk. And apparently, the racist white motherfucker who tried to deposit this comment on my blog got all bent out-of-shape over this post which is the truth and nothing but the truth. You see, whites, when confronted with the truth, become hysterical and even more stupid because this fool is calling me a racist when Black as I am, I cannot be a racist since I can deny those worthless racist, white-assed motherfuckers, a goddamn thing.

And in case the wording is too small for my viewers, the comment is by a racist who goes by the name Jeffrey P. Nunnari at jp59691@yahoo.com. IP address is 134.228.178.97 and the comment reads:

“You’re just a racist with black skin. You are part of the problem, not the solution. Shut the f**k up.”

So, all of you who are members of the ‘true racist fan club’ which happens to include ALL  of the pasty-assed variety, you have a like-minded individual who you can contact and hang out with and enjoy telling lies that Black people are racists because that is a lie since my Black ass can deny you worthless, dumb ass crackas not a goddamn thing. What cracka has to come to a Black person seeking a loan, employment, housing, education, medical care, food, clothing and every goddamn thing else? Not a goddamn one of you worthless, no account racist parasites. And yet, you sit somewhere on your stupid, clueless, crazy ass and call Black people racists. You dumb fucks don’t even pay attention to the stupid shit you type, write, speak or sign because if you did, you wouldn’t look so damn dumb all the goddamn time. How the hell can you call Black people ‘racist’ and still believe your ass is sane? You don’t have the sense god gave a goat and so you shut the fuck up until you can find some quack to fill you with some anti-insane meds. You fucking whites ARE the problem. You’ve always been the problem and you always will be the problem while you sit somewhere on your debased pasty ass and point the finger at those to whom you ARE the problem and claim they are the problem. Now how dumb is that stupid shit? Nothing is ever your fucking fault. Whites have practically destroyed what was once paradise and that’s somebody else’s fault to you dumb, stupid motherfuckers, ain’t it? Indeed it is!

“If only those people hadn’t let us whites crawl to their shores, murder the majority of the inhabitants, take their shit and then pollute it up, we would not be in deep shit now,” is how whites carry it. It is the fault of the indigenous populations ALL across this fucked up planet that’s the reason why this planet is fucked up, It’s got not a goddamn thing to do with the fact that whites thought that they were smarter than ALL other groups and so got to destroying this planet for us all and now everyone else is “racist and the problem and should shut up.” Fucking seriously??!!!! Get the hell outta here with that dumb as all hell bullshit, racist!

I have been silent as cat piss on here because I have been all over this fucking country looking for a new home and finding jack shit because whites have fucked up everywhere. I have even gone back to Minnesota and come back to Hillbilly Hollow and I turn my computer on and that stupid, dumb as all hell shit is looking me in the face. “You’re just a racist with black skin. You are part of the problem, not the solution. Shut the f**k up.”

I am so fucking NOT kidding! I am going to pitch a goddamn tent and be done with it. I am going to have typhus and hookworm dripping out of my ass because I want to be left the fuck alone. I am tired of playing the white motherfucker’s game. So, I will be jailed and then released and put my tent back up and get jailed and released and put my tent back up, but I am refusing to continue to play these tired ass fucking games of the whites. You never own your goddamn home because you’ve always got to pay taxes on it. You never can rent a decent place to live because this entire shithole is collapsing and so I am tired of throwing good money after bad. So, yeah! I’ve fucking joined the crazies and so since I have not a goddamn thing to lose, I choose to live how I choose to live. So fucking get ta jailing me!

In a few weeks, I will be offline for good. I will not buy a smartphone and chronicle my journey of getting hookworm and what it takes to relieve the symptoms. I will not chronicle my journey of being made to move my tent from one place to another or face jail time. What’s the point? It’s ALL been done before. Go look this shit up on Youtube! They don’t want  us off the grid and living like the Indians were originally living over here because the fat bloated, rich, white parasites have got to keep capitalism going. Paying no rent and paying no mortgage and paying no electric or water bill doesn’t keep capitalism up and running. They’d rather jail us than have that shit catch on. Well then fucking pay for my cot and three fucked up meals in jail because I am grinding my contributions to capitalism to a fucking halt. I am fucking tired of this shit!

I had to go through TSA and even though I didn’t get a pat down or x-rayed, the TSA bitch swiped my hands with something and I asked what was she doing. Her answer,  “I’m checking for bomb making material.” Fucking seriously?? I think that shit is what broke me the fuck out on my arm because I started itching in the area closest to my hand and it spread.

Transportation is SO goddamn bad here that when we left Hillbilly Hollow, we boarded a train because we can’t catch a plane here. Not unless you want to get on a crop duster and head south. We boarded the train, got off at BWI airport, bought our plane tickets, spent a night in Baltimore because our flight didn’t leave until the next morning and that is how we have to leave Hillbilly Hollow to head to Minneapolis, MN.

When we fucking pulled into Chicago on the way back to Hillbilly Hollow, the first thing we saw was a tent city. You folks don’t get it do you, we are ALL going to end up that way, so you may as well get to tasting what it’s going to be like.

This is where I’ll be pitching my tent and getting arrested.

I am pitching my tent right here in downtown Menacesnowta! I’m calling it “Going OFF grid!”

I just read an article about a Black woman who had lived in the same apartment for 40 years and she thought that she would live out her life there. Guess the fuck what! Her ‘WHITE’ landlord sold the building and the new owners are turning the building into an upscale condo building and so she has to go! Just like that! So, who really has permanent housing? None of us. And that shit went down in Washington, DC. Even she stated that Washington, DC is no longer “Chocolate City.” This is only the beginning and though we are being impacted in a horrific way, as each and every single hurricane comes down the pike, their white asses will be as well. Soon all of us will be camping out!

She’d lived on this historically black D.C. block for 40 years. Now she was being pushed out.

She was moving slowly, but she needed to speed up. Her blue sandals clicked on the hardwood floor, echoing off the empty green walls of the two-bedroom rent-controlled apartment in Northwest Washington where she had spent the past 40 years of her life.

Outside, her block was a booming microcosm of gentrification. Construction workers hammered and drilled, transforming an apartment building two doors down into condos that will sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Tourists with rolling bags swept in and out of the huge brownstone mansion next door that has become a bustling bed-and-breakfast. Millennials sped up and down the sidewalk on scooters. The corner store across the street at 13th and T had begun selling organic milk to cater to the newcomers. Rowhouses around the corner where black people once lived were being gutted, renovated and flipped. Now her own building was being emptied of its last tenants to be remade into something far fancier, something she knew she would never be able to afford. Price had to pack, move and turn in her keys before Labor Day.She’d planned to stay here until she became an old lady, in a building that sits just off U Street, a corridor known as Black Broadway.

 

This Black woman lived in that building for 40 years and has been pushed out to make way for whites. For the love of !!!!!!

And now this is the shit that has taken over Washington, D.C.

This is the shit that’s coming for the rest of us, but I’m considered to be racist and the problem??!!! My fucking rage knows no bounds!

 

Now go take a look at the pictures in the original article and see the whites strolling their white parasite kids down streets  that used to be trod by Black folks who have been pushed out of the way because racist whites got rich off the backs of our ancestors. And one white racist bitch even stated that she can live there thanks to “inherited wealth.” What “inherited wealth” do American descendants of slaves have since we are from people who were owned and who could not amass a fortune and hand that fortune down to us? But whites surely can. That is why they can move where the hell they want and shove us out the goddamn way. And if anyone thinks that living down South is better for Black folks, get the fuck outta here with that bullshit!

Health care down here is for shit! I’m sick now and the quack I’m seeing should have retired aeons ago, is also dumb as all hell and so yeah, I’ll take my chances getting my hookworm cured some goddamn where else when I catch it. But I damn sure as hell won’t stand a chance in hell of getting toe nail fungus cured down here, much less hookworm.

I was at the goddamn Emergency Room ten goddamn days ago because my quack couldn’t figure out if I had a contact dermatitis or an infected arm and so sent me to the ER. There was a ‘WHITE’ man in there who couldn’t sit down for long or stand up for long who had been operated on the day before and was at the ER the next day because he could not piss. They had fucked that man up the previous day and wouldn’t even give him an ER bed the very next day. His wife was going the fuck off because she saw other people being seen before her “couldn’t piss husband” who had been operated on the day before. They fucking called my name and as much as I hate, detest despise and loathe whites, I told the ER attendant to give him my room. She said, “You’re being ‘fast-tracked’ and so he has to wait.” What fast-track meant was that I would be getting a chair in the hallway with a curtain drawn on either side. I got to screeching and wailing about HIPAA regulations and privacy and then that set the rest of the ‘fast-tracked’ patients off and so they found a room for me; the psych room. I get the psych room because HIPAA regulations call for privacy with regards to patient information. How the hell can I have privacy when the person in the chair next to me can hear what my issues are and also what my Social Security number, DOB, address, telephone number and health insurance information is? That shit’s against HIPAA regulations right there, but I’m the one needing all up and down on the psych room? Those goddamn dumb as all hell whites at Lynchburg General Hospital, owned and operated by Centra Health, need the damn psych room!

Meanwhile, they found rooms for the other Black lady and man who was also going the fuck off. It was probably another psych room, I don’t know. I just know that that’s the room I was led to. When I got inside, I looked up and saw the camera in the ceiling, I then pointed at my obvious inflamed arm and said, “So, I come in here with an obvious inflamed arm and I get the psych room?” The nurse responded, “The camera is not turned on and this was the only available room.”

I am fucking stunned, STUNNED, I say! Because I’m thinking of dude out in the Emergency Room lobby being told that there was no available room for him when the psych room was empty and available and I am sure that he would not have been upset to have been placed in the psych room; just anywhere instead of being told to wait it out in the lobby while not being able to piss. SERIOUSLY????!!!!! This is ‘health care’ in this hillbilly hellhole! And you wonder why I would rather choose to be homeless in some other state that at least has several different medical systems for me to choose from when I need medical attention? There is only one medical system here and it is called, CENTRA HEALTH! That entity owns everything down here and if you get put out of any of its facilities, you’d better buy a ticket outta here because you can see NO other doctor anywhere! And that is why we already have to board a train whenever my cousin needs to see a doctor! But I’m the fucking racist????!!!! Again I say, “SERIOUSLY???!!!!

So no, Jeffrey P. Nunnari at jp59691@yahoo.com. IP address is 134.228.178.97, I will NOT shut the fuck up, as you can clearly see! Go fuck yourself, you stomp down flaming fucked up racist and take the rest of your kind with you to hell!

Whites Burned Down The ALL Black City, Rosewood. Whites Also Burned Down The Black Wall Street. So Why Is Koreatown In Los Angeles Still Standing?

Answer the question racist whites. Why is Koreatown still standing? You didn’t have a problem burning down everything Black people built for themselves, so why stop there? Is Korean barbecue and black bean noodle that goddamn good?

Homeless people in Los Angeles: LA builds pricey Koreatown apartments

In Los Angeles, the tents are spread out on sidewalks across the city, the homeless emboldened by a court ruling that allows them to live outside if no shelter space is available. Making matters worse, many live in filthy, third-world conditions without basic necessities like toilets and sinks. It makes them and those who venture near susceptible to disease.

A few homeless and low-income senior citizens will be luckier than most next year.

They will receive keys to one of 72 new apartments,complete with a fitness center, in the heart of trendy Koreatown, built at a projected cost of $690,692 for each unit, according to the city controller’s office. Two additional projects in the pre-approval phase are expected to top $700,000 per unit in total costs.

Awwww…isn’t that nice? A few homeless people and seniors are going to find themselves the lucky winners of pricey housing right smack dab in Koreatown, which isn’t over in North or South Korea, but is smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles because the whites just love them some Korean barbecue. It must be that the whites got tired of eating the food cooked by Africa’s stolen people; you know, the slaves. So now that the slaves’ offspring are behind bars, invite the Koreans to come over here and open their barbecue joints where they must sell a heck of an extreme amount of butchered pigs because by golly they got the pricey digs coming up to show for those restaurants they’ve managed to open all across this shithole.

Meanwhile, the rest of the homeless on Skidrow get to sit back in their tents and figure out how to cure their typhus and hookworm because the whites have that Korean barbecue to look forward to in Koreatown.

And yet when Black people were trying to be self-sufficient; self-reliable, for their efforts, racists put a stop to that.

The Rosewood Massacre

he Rosewood Massacre was an attack on the predominantly African-American town of Rosewood, Florida, in 1923 by large groups of whites. The town was entirely destroyed by the end of the violence, and the residents were driven out permanently.

By the 1920s, Rosewood’s population of about 200 was entirely made up of black citizens, except for one white family that ran the general store there.

It was in 1982 when Gary Moore, a journalist for the St. Petersburg Times, resurrected the history of Rosewood through a series of articles that gained national attention.

The living survivors of the massacre, at that point all in their 80s and 90s, came forward, led by Rosewood descendant Arnett Doctor, and demanded restitution from Florida.

The action lead to the passing of a bill awarding them $2 million and created an educational fund for descendants. The bill also called for an investigation into the matter to clarify the events, which Moore took part in.

The Black people who were left alive after the Rosewood Massacre, received $2 million dollars for the horror they were made to suffer at the hands of rabid, racist whites, who many were members of the Ku Klux Klan. Four apartments that are going to be built in Koreatown costs more than the two million those innocent Black people received. How fucking fair and just is that shit? But yet Koreans can come over here and open up businesses, amass a fortune and get to live in pricey digs in their own goddamn town, Koreatown, when American descendants of slaves were trying to do the very same goddamn thing and many were killed for their efforts and the others had to flee their own town thanks to racist ass whites!

And not to be outdone, these racist ass whites even went further and burned down The Black Wall Street.

Black Wall Street and the Destruction of an Institution

Black Wall Street was in Greenwood, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa, was the type of community that African Americans are still, today, attempting to reclaim and rebuild. Black Wall Street was modern, majestic, sophisticated and unapologetically Black. Tragically, it was also the site of one of the bloodiest and most horrendous race riots (and acts of terrorism) that the United States has ever experienced.

Today marks ninety-two years since as many as 300 African Americans lost their lives and more than 9,000 were left homeless when the small town was attacked, looted and literally burned to the ground beginning in 1921. It’s impossible, however, to realize what was lost in Greenwood, which was affectionately known as “Black Wall Street.”

Three hundred American descendants of slaves were viciously murdered and more than nine thousand were left homeless thanks to the rabid racism of whites who are hell bent on the annihilation of American descendants of slaves. Every group whether they are Korean, Chinese or from India or Pakistan or Timbukfuckingtu can come over here and climb over us and that is fine. They can have their communities, their businesses and their towns, but a people who are descended from those who were stolen and dragged over here? Not so goddamn fast! The whites are going to burn our shit to the ground and us with it. They want to make sure that we never thrive. The whites want us homeless, sick, hungry, incarcerated or dead! And that is exactly what is happening. This is why the fuck whites ain’t somewhere burning down Koreatown or Pakistanville or Hinduvillage, Hmongburg, China City or Russia Hamlet. Because make no mistake, though the Democrats scream and rail against the Russians, Russians are all over this hole like flies on shit. Take your ass to Minnesota, the Russian mafia is there, and in spades. The Democrats don’t hate Russians. Go see how the Russians over here live and then come tell me about how the Democrats hate the Russians. You don’t see no Russians in homeless encampments. And tell me, how many Asians do you see in homeless encampments, Hindu cow worshipers? Exactly! There are only millions of homeless American descendants of slaves and poor whites who have been deemed, poor white trash who are sitting all up in homeless encampments. And you seriously believe that this shit is by accident? Fucking get your head from out your ass because you want to be clueless about what the fuck is going down and why! The racists in this shithole know exactly what they are about and the foolishness down at the southern border is just that; foolishness because no one with two brain cells connecting and working should believe for one goddamn second that Donald “hired illegals to work for him” Trump is somewhere trying to rid this country of an illegal workforce. The fucking Hindu cow worshipers are over here on expired H1B visas and the whites ain’t giving a shit about that. The same with the Pakistanis and other ‘immigrants’. Even the goddamn Russians aren’t even looked at cross-eyed and yet what is the focus on? Some supposed ‘Russian meddling in the last election’? If you buy that load of horse shit, you’ve most definitely had a lobotomy. Take your dumb ass all across this worthless racist shithole and see that every community of ‘immigrants’ is thriving while those of us whose ancestors were dragged over here are living foul as hell! This is ALL done by design. Nothing racist whites do is by accident; nothing!

Our ancestors are screaming from the grave over what continues to go down. How the hell can they rest in peace when we can’t even see that we need to get up off the bling shit, the fake hair, fake nails, fake Asian food, fake ass killer liquor and some more shit that the whites have sent into our neighborhoods by way of the Asians, Hindus, Pakistanis and Russians to continue to fuck us up! Those worthless shits are helping whitey pasty ass to fuck us up and we are buying that shit up in droves and what the fuck do we have to show for it? Some wigs, weaves, fake nails, empty Asian take-out containers and empty Russian vodka bottles. How is that helping us become self-sufficient? It’s not and we can’t see that because when we are not busy handing our money over to these ‘immigrants’ who are welcomed over here by racist whites, we are heading inside movie theaters to be entertained by the whites and buying up the products made by white-owned companies. Nestle and Hershey ain’t our friends. Orville Redenbacher popcorn ain’t some shit we should be chowing down on. Pepsi and Coke ain’t some shit we should be drinking. That shit’s killing us as is the fucked up food in Kroger, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Costco and Safeway. Even the Africans over here have opened up their own halal meat markets. You don’t even see those motherfuckers up in those fucked up stores and yet, there we are buying hepatitis A from Kroger and Costco. We are buying salmonella and e coli from those places as well. And don’t even get me started on fast food joints. Seriously? Do I even need to go there? What is Chipotle known for other than burritos? E coli, that’s what! I can’t make you wake the fuck up. The only thing I can do is put it out there and hope that some of you at least, will pick it up! Other than that, I despair OF us! I’m fucking done!

The Crazy Shit That’s Happening!

For those of you who have posted blogs and I have not gotten a chance to view, it is because I have been on yet another trip to Baltimore and the crazy shit that’s happening just won’t quit!

My cousin and I go to Baltimore for our primary care because we live in racist ass Lynchburg. We are about to bounce in September and believe me, we cannot wait. However, with that being said, the crazy shit that I have seen in Baltimore, MD THIS trip is just whacked! We had to go to the airport to get our tickets and the lightrail was out-of-service thanks to a massive sinkhole on Pratt Street in downtown Baltimore that put the lightrail out-of-service. Thankfully, we found a way around that small problem.

At my cousin’s doctor appointment, there were people sitting in the waiting area who were homeless and who had been homeless for quite some time. The problem is that there was a social worker at the clinic as well as a ‘Housing Co-ordinator’ and both were completely useless and were paid to basically do nothing. One lady was asking the ‘housing co-ordinator’ to help her find housing and what she got for her efforts was a listing straight from ‘Apartmentsdotcom’ and told to “find your own housing because there is no affordable housing in Baltimore, MD.” What the fuck? The social worker was who had referred her to this so-called ‘housing co-ordinator’.

As we were leaving my cousin’s doctor’s appointment, we stumbled upon a man who was sleeping on the sidewalk in 105°F. I have no idea if the man was alive or dead, but we were too afraid to touch him for fear that he was ice cold.

After passing this man, we damn near stumbled upon another scene just like this one, only there were several people standing around a man who was lying on the sidewalk and it appears that he had fallen and a lady knelt beside him and tried to feel for a pulse only to look up and state that she couldn’t find one. We left as she was calling for paramedics. This scene plays out all across America, every single day and it is getting worse.

As politicians fight amongst themselves over Mueller investigations and Russian interference in elections, the people of this country are fucked up and are dropping dead on these mean streets and no one gives a goddamn! As solar panels are put up to provide lighting for specific areas, people are left to make it or not on their own.

What is the point to all of this when people need the money that was put to use to provide solar lighting in some areas? Why is there never any money to help those in need? How can people lying on the sidewalk be so overlooked while light fixtures are deemed more important than people dying on the sidewalk due to the heat or health conditions or both? What the hell is wrong with us? Why do we not see ourselves when we look at homeless people because with the shit that is going down, how can we not see that where they are, we too shall go? Not one of us will be immune to the crazy shit that’s happening. Not one! Don’t believe for a second that just because you believe that your job is secure in that no robot can do what you do, you are completely in denial. Robots are performing surgery. Robots are building vehicles. Robots are performing tasks that humans do including acting as sex dolls. Before too long, there is not going to be any job left that a robot cannot do and so more and more of us are going to join the ranks of the homeless; dying because we are homeless.

You sit in your comfortable home now, but the day is coming when your comfortable home will be exchanged for a sidewalk, an underpass, a tent or a box. Someone maybe checking for a pulse on your body and calling for the paramedics that will also be robots to come haul you to the morgue. The time to do something about this is now! And this is why I have collaborated with a company and designed a logo to help end homelessness, one person at a time. Someone has got to do something and I can no longer sit somewhere and wait for the next person to get it done.

I will soon have up and running a site whereas I will be selling t-shirts and mugs, caps and other items for the express purpose of starting an organization to end homelessness or at the very least, put a dent in the overwhelming numbers of homeless persons. No one is really doing a damn thing about homelessness besides posting videos after having interviewed the homeless. What the hell does that do? Not a goddamn thing. I am hell bent on trying to be a solution as opposed to continue as a frustrated onlooker. Below is a picture of just some of the merchandise that I will be selling with the proceeds going exclusively to helping people step from homelessness into housing.

Also available in the apparel line will be hoodies, tank tops, short sleeve t-shirts, long sleeve t-shirts, etc.

The writing is on the wall. There is no affordable housing. Rents are skyrocketing. Home ownership is out-of-reach for millions. The only way that we can attempt to help one another is through community support which means helping when we can; finding ways to counter the escalating shit that’s been coming down the pike for some time now. We can no longer look the other way because the crazy shit that is happening is going to affect us all. Apathy and complacency can no longer be the rule of the day. People, wake the fuck up! No politician is going to do a damn thing about a damn thing. All they are doing is trying to distract us from the real shit that is going down. Donald Trump’s tax return release is not going to house a homeless person. Russia’s supposed meddling in the election is not going to house a homeless person. That stupid Mueller hearing is not going to house a homeless person. That shit is just smoke and mirrors; the exact same shit that IS Wall Street. Wall Street’s shenanigans are just that and they have no place in our everyday life. Those of us who are on the mean streets of this shithole have nothing to lose or gain from Wall Street. We are not high rollers. We are not playing with fake ass money that is produced by a magician’s sleight of hand. I am seeing real people in real need; something that the politicians never care to see or concern themselves with. They don’t care that millions of people are housing insecure, are food insecure, are without health care because if they did, do you really think that the only worthless shit that they are concentrating on is Trump’s tax returns, Russia’s supposed meddling and other frivolous shit that matters not to the man, woman or child who is lying on the sidewalk breathing their last? What I just witnessed, a man without a pulse lying on the sidewalk in broad daylight with temperatures soaring to 100F should not have happened in one of the supposed richest countries on the planet, but I witnessed it.

I can no longer pen poems and consider that that is all that I should do. Who is that helping? I cannot just continue to witness the horror of people dying on the sidewalk because they cannot get in out of the heat; the heat that is only going to get worse thanks to man-made global warming. You do what you want or not, that depends on you. But I have got to at the very least….try! And that is exactly what I intend to do!

While politicians drone on about impeachment,
I lie here able to sleep on hot ass pavement.
While another dog and pony show commences,
and Mueller testifies about Trump’s offenses,
just down the street from me, a homeless man lay dying.
but over his death, I don’t have any tears for crying.
For I am probably next and there will be none to weep,
since the other homeless souls all around me are asleep.

What The Hell Is Going On??!!!

I subscribe to Minneapolis news and so I could not help but notice that the news out of Minneapolis is quite bizarre!

First up, we have this!

Lunds & Byerlys To Close All Pharmacies Next Week

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – All 14 Lunds & Byerlys pharmacy locations will permanently close July 17 due to “significant losses,” the company said Friday in a statement.

“Unfortunately, it has become increasingly difficult for retail pharmacies given a number of economic challenges within the industry,” the statement reads. “As a result, we have continued to incur significant losses in our pharmacy operations, and it is no longer feasible to continue offering this service.”

A pharmacy is finding “it has become increasingly difficult” to continue to operate due to “significant losses?” How is that even possible when everyone on this planet is sick as shit??!!! That doesn’t even make any sense. Every time I have to take people to a pharmacy, the lines are so backed up, it is unreal and so I just don’t get this.

Nor do I get this!

Famous Dave’s in Uptown closes

Famous Dave’s in Minneapolis’ Uptown has closed. Officials of the award-winning local barbecue restaurant say the plan is to open elsewhere and hinted at changes in the format with the next iteration.

For those of you who don’t know what Famous Dave’s is, it is a barbecue joint that also served as a wonderful nightspot for live entertainment. It was located in the so-called, “hippest area of town,” and now it has closed. Famous Dave’s was an icon in Uptown. Many a night, I found myself gyrating or as some would call it, “stomping roaches” on the dance floor. Even though I am Black, apparently, thanks to slavery, I’ve too much ‘white’ in me and therefore, since ‘whites can’t dance’, then neither can I. However, I digress. What the hell is going on??!! That place was always jumping at night and on Sundays, they had champagne brunches and of course, my brunch consisted of only ‘liquids’, the champagne kind. I have got to make a trip to Minneapolis in the coming months thanks to a lawsuit and I was really looking forward to heading over to Famous Dave’s for the nightly entertainment. Well, that’s out. Another favorite nightspot of mine just recently shut down; Market Barbecue. I used to love going there for karaoke, but I can’t do that anymore since Dominium Property Management Company is said to be building affordable housing units and needed that space. The problem with that is that Dominuium is known for being among the worst when it comes to apartment management.

And we come to this!

Minnesota-Based Regional Trucking Company Abruptly Closes

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A regional trucking company based in Minnesota has abruptly ceased operations.

On the company’s website, LME trucking of Roseville notified shippers that “but effective July 12, 2019 LME Inc. will no longer be making pickups or deliveries of freight due to unforeseen circumstances and have ceased operations.”

According to several reports, the abrupt closure left hundreds of employees without a job.

LME’s website says the company operates across Midwest, with over 30 terminals throughout the region with over 600 men and women making up the LME team.

Over 600 people have abruptly lost their jobs in an area where rents are skyrocketing and where affordable housing is all but unheard of. As of today, those 600 workers have joined the ranks of the unemployed and must apply for unemployment benefits and hopefully find another job before those benefits run out. Meanwhile, Trump continues to tout his lies that there is almost full employment in Amerikkka and that everyone who is seeking a job can find a job. We have three businesses that have just shuttered their doors and left employees holding the bag. But at least Famous Dave’s is saying that all affected employees at its closed Uptown restaurant can take jobs at any of its other locations. Depending on where the employees live relative to where those locations are may hamper their ability to take a job at another location when considering gas and how long it is going to take them to get there. Most employees tend to want to work near where they live. And I must say, the other Famous Dave’s locations are quite a ways from the closed Uptown location.

And the bad news continues.

172 sickened in Big Island 4th of July outbreak, cause unclear

MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) – State and county health officials say more than 170 people fell ill due to an outbreak at Big Island on Lake Minnetonka on the Fourth of July.

Investigators interviewed more than 200 people and learned more than 172 people experienced symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea.

Health officials are urging people to practice good hygiene habits while visiting the lake, such as not using the lake as a bathroom, washing hands and showering before and after entering the lake.

It was later confirmed that e coli was the cause meaning “White folks, you’re nasty!” Lake Minnetonka is the rich white folks playground and they have often been in the news for operating boats while intoxicated out of their minds. If Black folks carried on like that, we’d have been locked up so fast, our heads would be spinning. But drinking and operating a car, truck or boat is fine so long as your skin is pallid. Not to be outdone, at least three Minneapolis beaches have been closed due to e coli contamination.

And even more bad news, but this is out of Oakland, CA!

Oakland real estate developer’s controversial cash stunt to clear homeless camp backfires

Developer and Trump supporter, Gene Gorelik, of the Oakland Redevelopment Group, stood on a boom lift holding a bullhorn announcing, “Free money! Free money!” and dropping dollar bills over a homeless encampment in Oakland, California, Friday morning. Wearing an elf costume, Gorelik offered residents $1,000 each to move, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Residents of the encampment are shown on video posted to social media, shouted, “Fuck you, Gene,” in response.

By the end of Gorelick’s “offer,” no one had accepted any of the cash he had offered those at the homeless encampment.

The city of Oakland sued Gorelik in 2017 after he demolished his tenant’s apartment while the man was still inhabiting the residence.

Ultimately, Gorelik’s attempt to remove residents of the camp failed, and he was escorted away by at least two officers from the Oakland Police Department after a protester blocked his rented truck from leaving the encampment, according to the Chronicle’s Jessica Christian.

One woman in the video who has been declared the mayor of this particular homeless camp had something to say and it is so very true.

“Even if you move everybody from here, it’s another location they’ll be at and then you have to move them again and again and again. It’s not a solution.”

No, it is not a solution. It is not even addressing the root causes of why there are so many homeless camps. But one of the reasons why there is such a huge problem of homelessness is thanks in part to Developer and Trump supporter, Gene Gorelik and those like him who cannot see past the immense wealth that they continue to hoard at the expense of this planet and all who call it, dare I say, “home?” We are in deep shit thanks to those like Gene Gorelik who refuse to do anything to try and address climate change since he is hell bent on throwing up even more steel monstrosities that only add to our climate change woes. And how is standing on a platform, dressed in an ‘elf’ suit and throwing around dollar bills going to make people go away who really have nothing left to lose and who have found their own sense of community out of necessity? What Gene Gorelik did was an absolute insult; a slap in the face of those homeless people. These capitalist pigs just don’t get it! Gene Gorelik thought that everyone at that homeless camp was going to accept his ill-gotten gains and then move the hell along. To where? Now if Gene Gorelik had said, “I’ve just now opened affordable housing units for you all,” that would have been cause to celebrate. But doing the ‘right’ thing is not something that is even on Gene Gorelik’s loathsome mind. His ‘kind’ is never going to get it. He is going to die still thinking that ‘his’ way was the BEST way and that nothing he did was detrimental to a soul because he doesn’t have one.

And so no, this is not just a ‘bad news’ blog, this is a reality blog because the reality is that those who have set all of this in motion and who it seems, are about to try and bail because they see what’s coming, are not going to get hit with an epiphany and all of a sudden start doing the ‘right’ thing. Hell! Even as Gorelik’s buddy Trump sits his debased ass inside the White House that just had the basement flood, he is still denying climate change. We are at the mercy of psychopaths and since we are, we are ALL headed for disaster, not just those who have already found themselves at rock bottom in a homeless camp in Oakland, CA. I hear tell that there are two different scenarios playing out in New Orleans right now thanks in part to Tropical Storm Barry; those who are fleeing for their very lives and those who are celebrating like it’s 1999. Which scenario fits you?

In conclusion folks, the only thing I do know is that there has been a distinct turn of events that does not bode well for the majority of us. The ‘good times’ are gone and they are not coming back. Whether you want to believe that you will make it through whatever is to come, that’s up to you, but believe me, what we are seeing is unprecedented. People are killing their children like nothing I’ve ever seen; people who have been labeled, “mentally ill” for want of any other explanation. People have become more enraged than I have ever seen what with a woman who just killed her husband in a road rage incident. I just read reports that two more stores are shuttering their doors for good and this is in addition to the ones that I have included in this post. Where I live, stores are shuttering their doors, left and right. The one mall we have, if it can be called that, has only two anchor stores, J.C. Penny and Belk. The ‘food court’ has four food stalls and even McDonald’s closed. When I was in Baltimore, MD in May, I went to the so-called “World Famous Lexington Market” and several stalls had closed and when I went back in June, even more stalls had closed. There are now more closed stalls than there are open ones. Everywhere seems to be turning into a ‘ghosttown’. People everywhere are depressed, on drugs or are drinking themselves to death. And yet Wall Street’s fake ass shenanigans continue. Capitalist pigs like Trump’s friend and supporter, Gene Gorelik continue to throw up huge steel monstrosities. Homeless camps continue to gain membership, Mother Nature continues to wreak havoc and no one really has a clue. Yes indeed, what the hell is going on??!!!

Call Me “Crazy!” But I returned To Baltimore, MD

Baltimore Inner Harbor

 

I know! I know! I said that I would never, ever go back to Baltimore, MD, not after the horrific shit that happened to me and to my cousin, but the truth of the matter is that no matter how horrible things are for you in one place, they can be even more horrible in another place. And where my cousin and I live right now is even worse than Baltimore’s shit. In fact, the reason why we returned to Baltimore, MD is because of where we live now. He was thrown out of the only medical “game” in town and by that I mean that here in Lynchburg, VA, the only medical “game” in town is called, “Centra Health.” They are over every single medical office here in this city. They have the monopoly on the fucked up shit they call ‘health care’. Never come to this city if you want decent health care because these idiots will kill you and that is a fact! If someone actually did research on this shithole burg, they would find plenty of evidence to back up what I have just written about this fucked up mess they call ‘health care’ here in Lynchburg, VA. Hell! Even spellcheck is trying to check my spelling of this damn burg because, apparently, “Lynchburg” is not something that is ‘kosher’, since why would you want to name a city “Lynchburg” in the first goddamn place if you didn’t want to be perceived as racist as hell??!!! Of course, the word from the white parasites that run this shithole burg is that the first white parasite to set up shop here was named John Lynch and so “Lynchburg” was born. HA! Right! It’s because of all the lynching that went on is why this hole is called “Lynchburg.” They even had a lynching tree and the whites here cried all over the goddamn place when the lynching tree was struck by lightning and that was it for that fucked up tree. But as usual, I digress.

Since my cousin was thrown out of the medical system here, we had to go elsewhere for him to receive his medical care and he wanted to go back to his doctor in Baltimore, MD and so we went. In fact, this is our second trip to Baltimore. We went last month because he had a doctor’s appointment and we made another appointment for Monday of this week, but his doctor called us and told us that it would not be necessary for him to be seen so soon since he was doing well. She told us that we were still welcome to come and see her and just have a great time with her talking about our trip and our plans for seeing the sights in Baltimore. Now remember, his doctors here in Lynchburg lied about their reasons for denying him access to their facilities by stating that he “exhibited unsafe behavior towards staff,” and yet his doctor from when we previously lived in Baltimore, MD, not only welcomed him back with open arms, but was quite willing to have us just visit with her. So, who is the goddamn problem? Newsfuckingflash! It’s not my cousin or me! It’s this racist shit here in Lynchburg! And we can’t get out of here fast enough to suit us, goddamn it!

Here I shall post some pictures that we took on this latest Baltimore trip and I fell in love with Baltimore all over again!

Baltimore Inner Harbor by night is just lovely!

And this one!

Beautiful! Just beautiful!

 

And this one as well!

In the mid 90s when I lived here, I was always at the Harbor.

 

I also took a few day time pictures.

The Baltimore Inner Harbor by day

 

And another one by day!

Pretty tree by the harbor in bloom!

 

 

We stayed at the Days Inn Inner Harbor Hotel. It was okay, but I didn’t like the setup whereas the sink was outside of the bath/toilet area.

The tub/toilet is located behind the wall where the picture is and across from that is the sink. Not a great setup at all.

 

At least it had a fridge/microwave. But that was all it had to say for itself. I had some Wyndham rewards points to get rid of since I used to stay at the La Quinta in Bloomington, MN lots of times and now La Quinta is owned by Wyndham and my points switched over to Wyndham. I won’t be staying here anymore.

The microwave was fucked up because the tray didn’t fit and was always bumping up against the microwave.

 

And the decor of the room was not too bright.

I would not recommend Days Inn Inner Harbor Hotel.

 

The ‘motor’ or whatever in the AC/heating unit was carrying on something awful. The only reason we did not request a different room is because the unit that was in the hallway was carrying on equally as bad.

No frills here!

 

Or here!

I finally get around to showing you a picture of where the sink is, outside the bathroom proper. Seriously??!!

But I guess I should not complain!

I would much rather have been here than where the person in this next picture is.

We ‘humans’ find much to complain about and yet, when I went outside and down to the Inner Harbor, I encountered….well…see for yourself.

A homeless man in a wheelchair down by the Inner Harbor

This is exactly what I mean when I say that we ‘humans’ are some real shits when we can sit somewhere and whine because our hotel room is not up to our standards and then turn right around and pass by a homeless person, whose situation is much, much, much worse! And I am not leaving me out in this “we are some real shits” scenario because I pissed and moaned and threatened to go to the Front Desk and complain, but my cousin talked me down from the fucking ceiling. And it did not help that we gave the homeless man some money. He doesn’t need that. What he needs is some mental health care case management, a social worker, some health care and a goddamn roof over his head and I am pretty sure that if I had given up my hotel digs to him, he’d not have complained one goddamn bit! But I am a hypocrite for calling others out when I am just as guilty of being hoity-toity and think my shit don’t stink. It doesn’t because I eat healthy, but that’s beside the point! I am a shameless hypocritical shit for carrying on so about a hotel room when a man is sitting somewhere sick and some mo shit and is uncomplaining while ‘humans’ walk right on by him complaining about their phone needing charging or their fucked up hotel room or about they need their nails done. We are some real sick and twisted shits for not caring about people while we put our stupid asses above those who are the real and true humans who are suffering, mightily. Like this next woman!

A poor homeless woman at the Baltimore Inner Harbor at night.

Yeah! I’m caterwauling over the fact of my hotel sink being outside of the bathroom proper while this woman doesn’t even have a bathroom at all! Again, we gave her money, but what she needs is for people to care enough about others and do something about the seriousness of homelessness over concerning themselves over what’s not up to par for them like a microwave tray banging up against the inside of the microwave or about an AC/heating unit making some fucking noise. And again! I am including myself in this and to show you just how fucking hypocritical I am. I was just relaxing in a bar before heading to the Inner Harbor in order to witness that poor homeless woman slowly making her way around the harbor.

The money we spent on White Zinfandel wine and draft beer could have gone to a homeless person. And I should know better.

And so while we wined and dined, people were out in the streets, with no place to go and no one to give a thought for their well being. But there we sat, just a’swilling drinks while I complained about my room.

My third one! And remember, I gave up drinking til today. And you’ve probably been wondering why my previous pictures were tilted. This would be why.

 

I have said this before and I say it again, “I can’t make you care!” Hell! I am guilty of having a ‘no care’ attitude. But it needs to stop! I need to put the needs of others who are in worse shape than I am in, first. I need to stop with this ‘me first’ attitude. I need to step up to the plate because I am faltering. Yes, we live in a cold, cruel world of people who seem to be immune to the suffering we see all around us on a daily basis and that is a bad way to be. This is why folks shit is flooded out! This is why horrific shit is going down, daily! This is why folks……because we are treating each other like shit and that is going to come home to roost all on our ass! If we continue down this road, there is going to be no hope for us. Bet on that!
