A Badge Of Shame: The Government’s War On America’s Military Veterans — The Most Revolutionary Act

via A Badge Of Shame: The Government’s War On America’s Military Veterans — The Most Revolutionary Act

 

From the article:

“In recent years, military servicemen and women have found themselves increasingly targeted for surveillance, censorship, threatened with incarceration or involuntary commitment, labeled as extremists and/or mentally ill, and stripped of their Second Amendment rights.

An important point to consider, however, is that under the guise of mental health treatment and with the complicity of government psychiatrists and law enforcement officials, these veterans are increasingly being portrayed as threats to national security.”


So do you still want to enlist? Do you still believe the bullshit that you are protecting ‘freedom and democracy and rights’ even as you are left without any of the aforementioned because we never had any to begin with regardless of what patriotic bullshit they fed you? Think for yourselves! It is not a novel concept. People had been doing it for years too numerous to count, but I guess since new technology has come down the pike and ‘smartphones’ have taken the place of brains as has Alexa and Siri and whatever else is out there called, a ‘personal assistant’, no one can think for themselves anymore.

Read the entire article and get a clue! Those folks who are welcomed into the U.S. military, whereupon completing their stint, they are discharged, but are also scrutinized, apparently, since they have been deemed, a threat since they know the shit that the United States government via the U.S. military has done all across this godforsaken planet.

If they can label all former service men and women as mentally ill, then who is going to take seriously what they have to say as it pertains to war crimes and other horrors that have been committed in our name and for what? ‘Freedom and democracy and rights’? Fucking shut the hell up already about that shit because it is all just bullshit. We don’t have ANY goddamn rights. We never had any rights and we never will. But go ahead! Continue to sign on the dotted line and if you don’t get your ass kicked overseas, come on back here and get your ass kicked by the very shits that sent you overseas. They know you’re fucked up in the head. They just don’t want you spouting off at the mouth about the shit they made you do in foreign lands and here on Amerikkkan soil. If they don’t kill your ass, they will make sure that you are viewed as a mentally ill extremist and the elephant in the room is that you are exactly what they say you are. Witness the headlines out today!

California shooting suspect was a decorated Marine veteran

Nov 8 (Reuters) – The man suspected of killing 12 people in a bar in a Los Angeles suburb was a decorated Marine Corp machine gunner deployed in Afghanistan who had several prior brushes with law enforcement, police and Marine officials said on Thursday.

Ian David Long, who also died in the attack late Thursday, was 28 years old and lived in Newbury Park, a prosperous suburb of Californian bungalows and tidy front lawns, about 4 miles (6.4 km) from the Borderline Bar & Grill where the shooting took place.

Long joined the Marines in 2008 and rose to the rank of corporal before leaving active service in 2013, Joseph Butterfield, a Marine spokesman, wrote in an email.

He served in the war in Afghanistan for seven months beginning in late 2010, the Marine Corp said, and was awarded multiple ribbons, commendations and medals.

Ian David Long, dead at 28, once lived in his nice prosperous suburb with nice, tidy lawns where there were no Black folks around to be bothered with and yet, he felt the need to join the U.S. military and murder people he’d never even laid eyes on over in Afghanistan. The U.S. military then promptly fills his chest with multiple ribbons, commendations and medals and upon serving his stint, he gets a discharge and now, he’s made headlines for shooting up a bar full of people he didn’t even know. What’s the matter? He can shoot some people he didn’t know over in Afghanistan, but once he comes back to Amerikkka, he must be able to turn the ‘kill switch’ off and resume a ‘normal’ life(whatever the hell that is these days) as though he had worked for the Post Office and had not been in the U.S military where he was trained to kill? You people are really stupid if you can believe that a person who has been given a weapon, was trained on how to use that weapon and was told he’d better use it on ‘the enemy’ which is whomever the U.S. government points a finger at and told to “Get to shooting!” can just resume life as he had lived it before joining the military. Yeah! He’s going to be alright! All he needs is to come back to his nice little suburb and relax and look fondly upon ALL his ribbons, commendations and medals that were bestowed on him for murdering people he didn’t even know. Don’t forget that he is also looking fondly upon that weapon that was put into his hands by the U.S. military. Well, he did, right up until either he was killed by first responders or he killed himself. I guess they’re still trying to sort that out.

When are you going to stop feeding these people some patriotic bullshit about honor and bravery and sacrifice and freedom and liberty and rights when that’s not why warmongers are sending young American teenagers into warzones? Warmongers, who represent U.S. in the halls of congress and in the White House are sending our children to their death or into mental illness diagnoses to further enrich their coffers and you stupid motherfuckers had better start realizing that fucking fact! Donald Trump’s draft-dodging ass was too smart to ever get himself drafted to fight for some bullshit, but now he wants to take umbrage with some NFL players for kneeling, claiming that they are disrespecting the troops who ‘serve’ in the most murderous military on the face of this planet that even he refused to ‘serve’ in. Another fact is that many of these mentally ill killers join the police force and are corrections officers and are tormenting and killing people over here just as they did those in foreign lands.

Even though the original article claims that the U.S. Government has declared ‘war’ on those who have ‘served’ in the U.S. military and are now deemed a threat because they know the truth in that we are fed lies, lies and damned lies about why there are over 700 military bases stationed all across this planet costing trillions of dollars a year doing fuck all, the fact of the matter is that those who ‘serve’ in the U.S. military are never ‘free’ from war even after they are discharged. They have been turned into ‘killing machines’ and there is no ‘off switch’. Both are wrong; the U.S. government and those who sign on the dotted line.

And I don’t ever want to hear that mess about how the poor people join the military as a means to escape poverty. Ian David Long does not fit that profile and so that makes a lie out of why many join the military. Maybe there are those who join in an attempt to escape poverty, but I have also read that newly enlisted grunts start out receiving wages that still qualify them for food stamps. So much for escaping poverty.

Another mass murder and this time, twelve victims and the shooter was a highly decorated marine veteran who was WHITE and who was from a prosperous suburb in California. And yet whites loudly proclaim that Black people are the problem. Are you motherfuckers really that fucking stupid, ignorant and racist? Never mind answering. I know the answer. Yes, you motherfuckers are! Suck it!

 

 

No Grand Jury Indictment For The Murder Of Justine Damond In Minneapolis, MN!

There! I’ve done their job for them. A grand jury has been convened to determine whether or not to hand down an indictment for murder against Minnesota Somali police officer, Mohamed Noor. Even though it was last July that the murder of Ms. Damond took place, I am sure that we all remember what happened, but just in case you cannot remember, maybe this will refresh your memory.

Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a 40-year-old life coach, was killed by Minneapolis Officer Mohamed Noor just minutes after she called police to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. Noor hasn’t been charged, and Freeman said weeks ago that more investigating was needed in the case. He also told activists in a recorded conversation that he didn’t have enough evidence and investigators “haven’t done their job.”

Now, let me get this straight, there is not enough evidence that Somali Officer Mohamed Noor killed Australian immigrant, Justine Damond, by shooting her in the stomach as she approached the patrol car after she initially called the police to report a possible crime in the alley near her home and she accidentally belched after having eaten her dinner which startled Officer Noor’s partner which they say resulted in Officer Noor fearing for his partner’s safety which then caused him to shoot Ms. Damond in the stomach which led to Ms. Damond’s death? And as I read that back, it doesn’t even make any sense; none whatsoever.

So, if I am a firm believer in ‘Neighborhood Watch’ and I hear a noise near my home sometime during the night, and it sounds like a crime in progress and I go outside to investigate and my neighbor comes up to me because she too is wondering what is going on and she farts and I am startled by the noise and I accidentally shoot her dead, am I guilty of a crime? Uh…that, apparently, would be a resounding, “NO!” according to Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman.

It has to be “NO” because according to Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, “he didn’t have enough evidence” to charge Noor with a crime because “investigators haven’t done their job.” AND…”the officers didn’t turn on their body cameras until after the shooting, and there was no squad-car camera video of the incident,” which begs the question, “If the police have nothing to hide, why is it that more often than not, their body cameras are not turned on, and in many instances, even their squad-car camera video is turned off?” Taxpayers are paying out the wazoo for those body cameras and so why then are police not using them? What are they for? Decoration?

Ms. Damond got just what Philando Castile got, he got shot dead too, by a cop who was also acquitted by a jury and for the same reason, Officer Jeronimo Yanez stated that he “feared for his life” even though he had requested that Philando Castile produce his identification and upon doing so, Philando Castile was shot for it. Castile was initially pulled over because he had a ‘wide nose’ and apparently, someone who had committed a crime also had a ‘wide nose’. So, a man is dead because he had a wide nose???!! I cannot tell you how many people I have seen who have wide noses and they would all have been presumed guilty because of that? Seriously??? The man was a model citizen just as this Ms. Damond was said to be and yet, both are dead and the murderer of Philando Castile has already been acquitted and the murderer of Ms. Damond will be not be indicted or found guilty for killing her. Too bad Ms. Damond did not insist that her and her fiancee return to Australia, she would be alive today. Unfortunately, Philando Castile had no say in being here seeing as how his ancestors were dragged here and that’s his reason for residing in AmeriKKKa, but apparently, Justine Damond just assumed from reading all the reports of cops shooting Black people that it just could not happen to her. Well, it did! And the cop that shot her has not even been made to open his mouth about what he did to Ms. Damond since he shot her dead last July. Let me shoot someone dead and my Black ass would already be cooling my heels in prison and no States Attorney would be mouthing off that there was just no evidence to even compel me to talk, much less indict and prosecute me for murdering someone.

How is it right and just that there are two separate laws; one for the police who kill people and one for everyday citizens who kill people? Murder is murder and if a cop murders someone while in uniform or out of uniform, if the killing was unjustified, that cop should be charged with murder and sentenced, but nothing doing. Why are we allowing this to continue? By simply marching down the damn street, we do nothing about any of this. The entire ‘American justice system’ is a sham and that should be well understood by one and all by now. We can comply with the instructions from the police and still end up dead by police. We can be the ones who call for assistance because we think a crime is being committed against a fellow human being and end up getting shot dead ourselves and the cops aren’t responsible? Seriously? Yes, the upper middle class white folks in South Minneapolis were in an uproar for a bit and succeeded in forcing the police chief to resign, but has that actually solved the real problem which is that the entire system is dirty and full of nothing but corruption from one end of this country to the other? No, it hasn’t. White people were absolutely shocked, appalled and horrified when Ms. Damond was shot dead in her yard, because that just should not happen to whites; that which has been happening to Black people on a daily basis since forever. And even though the police killed a white woman who had no criminal record, there have been no sweeping changes and there will be none because we have just come to accept the fact that we live in a police state and so we deal with it and hope that we are not next.

Well, just you ask Ms. Justine Damond did she think in a million years that she would make headline news for being the victim of ‘death by cop’ and I am sure she would have laughed in your face because everyone knows, only Black people can count on making those headlines. And though she was an Australian citizen, even the Aussies have shut the fuck up since this went down. This murder occurred in July of last year and we are nearing the end of January and I’d not seen one article about this until yesterday, when it was announced that a ‘grand jury had finally been convened and for what? Ask Tamir Rice!

Finally, find out how many cops have served in the U.S. military, the numbers will astound you and we should also be aware that the U.S. military turns ‘humans’ into killing machines and so then, how could they let those killing machines loose on city streets in America when those killing machines have been programmed to kill? I guess same as how they’ve militarized the police force all across America with military equipment from war zones. I’m not saying that Noor or Yanez served in the military, but a great number of murderous cops have indeed, served in the military. What’s been deployed to war zones is the very last thing we need patrolling our streets!

A Rage So Cold, Yet Hot!

rage

I just read a story
and it really made me feel,
a rage so cold yet hot,
my skin could slice through steel.
Oh, why must I feel?
The pain tears through my heart.
It hurts too much to hurt.
 When does the healing start?

The jails are overcrowded
with those who look like me.
And it is all done by design
by those who refuse to see
that their hatred plays a part
in why this scheme of theirs won’t end
until we are dead and on a cart,
with yet another funeral to attend.

I cannot make you care.
Hell! I’m too tired to try.
I’d be wasting precious time
because you want us all to die.
I look evil in its face
every time I look at you.
 And I hope there’ll come a day
when you will get what’s due.

I don’t believe in god,
nor will prayer help at all
since you sit up in a church
and yet, still heed hatred’s call.
What part don’t you get
that I can’t change my skin?
What did I ever do to you
to make my death cause you to grin?

I am talking to a wall,
of this, I am in no doubt.
But you see, I might explode
and when I do, I’m a take you out.
I know that I’ll not survive
and I have no problem with that.
But one of these days,
I’m gonna lay your ass out flat!

When you least expect me,
I’ll be lying in wait for you.
 And that day is gonna come
just as sure as the sky is blue.
Please don’t take me seriously.
I want the element of surprise
when I shove lead up your ass,
I guess then, you’ll recognize!

The tragic situation involving Abdi comes as Black Lives Matter has gained traction in Canada too, especially in light of outrage over recent police killings in the U.S. of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile as well as last week’s shooting of Charles Kinsey, who had his hands up and was providing assistance to an autistic man.

https://colouredjustice.wordpress.com/2016/07/29/the-story-that-sent-me-to-jail-juvenile-justice/

NEW YORK — I am writing this from inside a jail cell. I was put here for doing an unremarkable, routine bit of journalism, covering a sentencing in a murder. I won’t go so far as to say I was arrested since I was never read any rights. I am in the cell just the same.

Unfortunately, to be continued……..

Jay Z, To The Klan Decked Out in Blue, “Don’t Shoot Us!”

Jay Z

 

I must admit that I have never listened to even one of Jay-Z’s songs and so I am in no position to review this latest song of his whereas he is ‘telling’ the police not to shoot us, but I am pretty sure that Jay Z has rapped about bitches, hos, bling, gangbanging and the like; being a rapper, of course. I am pretty sure that the majority of songs recorded by Jay Z, were labeled, “explicit.” And so, I wonder is he walking around calling HIS daughter, a “ho?” I wonder is he walking around calling his daughter, a “bitch?” I wonder is he telling his daughter that when she grows up, get with a guy who is gangbanging in an attempt to bring home some dough, just expect to get with lots of ’em because the life of a gangbanger is short, just as the life of every Black man in AmeriKKKa is shortened by inner city violence and crime and by out-of-control killer Klansmen decked out in blue, otherwise known as the slave patrol.

Now, it has been stated that this latest song is ‘spiritual’. What that means, I don’t know and so let me just post a few lyrics and see if I can find anything ‘spiritual’ about this song that’s ‘telling the Klan decked out in blue, to stop killing us.

Yeah, I am not poison, no I am not poison
Just a boy from the hood that
Got my hands in the air
In despair don’t shoot
I just wanna do good, ah

This is what Jay Z calls, “Spiritual?” I am not poison, just a boy from the hood, got my hands in the air, in despair, and I just wanna do good?” Hmmmm……I am not quite getting the ‘spiritual’ connection here. Now, if he had of said,

“I drink from a poison cup each day,
 even at night
when I’m on my knees to pray,
God knows,
I’ve sacrificed my life for my wife and my daughter
and the shit is still hitting the fan in a big ass way.
My hands, are clenched at my side in Bible study
as the bullets pierce my tender flesh.
Lord, what is this mess?
Your creation is killing your creation
and I ain’t feeling the elation.
Where is MY rapture Lord?
Where is MY rapture?
I need some before I die
and I know you know why!”

rap lyrics by Shelby I. Courtland

©2016 Shelby I. Courtland, who by the way, does not rap. So, gi’ me a break!

I’m no rapper and I’ve never claimed to be but to me, writing a song to tell the KKKops that our hands are in the air and so please don’t shoot us is not spiritual, it is demeaning because our hands have been up in the air for hundreds of years and still the only thing that is sought, is our annihilation. Even a blind man that’s been planted can still see this. And, “I just wanna do good?” What is that all about?  Black people don’t have to ‘do bad’ to get shot and killed by racist KKKops. Ask Freddie Gray, just what was he doing wrong that got his spine severed and himself inside a casket. So, according to Jay Z, if we tell everyone that we ‘wanna do good’, why, that is going to make all the difference in the world. Tamir Rice, I am sure, is thrilled to hear it!

AND…and…if this song by Jay Z is so spiritual, than why are these lyrics in it?

Nigga ain’t dozed, I ain’t washed in a week
I ain’t changed clothes ’til the Black Album
Til I tapped out ’em, them niggas is WWE

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to NOT listen to this ‘spiritual’ song whereas Jay Z is still referring to Black people in the most derogatory term ever made up by the ‘whites’. And let me just interject here for a minute with some thoughts of my own. What I am trying to understand and have been trying to understand for quite some time now, is why oh why, are Black people the only race of people that will take up THE most derogatory name in history and apply it to ourselves? What the hell is wrong with us? You see, we have no respect for ourselves as a people and since we don’t, no one else will have any respect for us either and now, I am going to be brutally honest. I am getting to the point whereas I don’t have much respect for Black people, as a whole. I don’t. I never even want to board a bus, ever again because all I hear is “Nigga this and Nigga that!” How many Chinese people do you hear calling other Chinese people, “Chinks?” White Europeans, and this means AmeriKKKans, because they came to AmeriKKKa from Europe, refer to Chinese people using that derogatory term and do you think that the Chinese grabbed it and accepted it? Hell no!

Do you think Mexicans are calling each other “Wetbacks?” Hell no, they’re not! Every group that did not originate in Europe and who were given a derogatory name by Europeans has not accepted or claimed a derogatory name given to them by Europeans except for Black people. Now, that speaks volumes. Again, we are the only group who will look to our oppressors for our identification because that is exactly what Black people have done because more Black people use a version of that word “Nigger” than those of us who don’t. And don’t give me no bullshit about how that is not true because I’ll call you a straight up liar! Every person in my family has used that word to describe another Black person except for me and about 3 others. Even the so-called ‘bougie’ Black folks refer to other Black people as “Niggers or  Niggaz.” You can’t dress that word up. You cannot call that word, “a term of endearment.” You cannot write a ‘spiritual’ song and include a version of that word in it because it reduces your message to one of vulgar noise with no substance. It renders your argument, null and void and if your argument is against the Klan decked out in blue killing innocent Black people, then you are part of the problem and most definitely not the solution.

The Jay Zs of this world made their money off the Black community, hit it big and then turn their backs on it. They no longer even identify with the Black struggle because they and their ‘product’ have been confiscated by their white masters and they do their bidding. Oh yes, we all know that Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles hit the big time and some of their ‘product’ they purportedly own, but they are still owned, lock, stock and barrel by the ‘white’ man. But still, they’ve got more money than they know what to do with and yes, I had read that Beyoncé allegedly poured a bottle of champagne costing $20,000 into a hot tub in a Nicki Minaj video,  and if this is true, how many hungry children could have been fed with that $20,000? One article of clothing that they wear could keep the lights on for an entire neighborhood and while I do understand that Jay Z and Beyoncé bailed Ferguson and Baltimore protesters out of jail, would they have even been in jail if not for the systemic racism that is endemic to America? Would Freddie Gray have been murdered if we did not live in a society that values Black lives less than it does a cow? For what does it cost Jay Z to put together some lyrics that a child could write, studio up a beat and then sell it to the brainwashed ‘Niggaz’ that he goes on and on about who have raised their arms in the air and who, despite this, are still finding themselves full of bullets shot by racist KKKops? And though Jay Z and Beyoncé and other singers and professional sports players drop a dime every now and then in Haiti and in America as well, they are not the solution to what ails Black communities all across America and the solution to our woes of racism, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass unemployment and underemployment, mass incarceration, abject poverty and homelessness, rampant drug addiction and gentrification will not be solved until we actually believe that we are something other than “Niggaz!”

Why we value ourselves so little is because many of us look to others to define our worth and by doing so, we will always come up short. Our ancestors were assessed for their worth; their value, before having been sold at auction. They were considered to be property and to this day, nothing has changed. We are still considered, ‘property’ to be used and discarded at will. If you are not making money for the ‘white’ man, you are of no value to him and so he has instructed the slave patrols to relieve you of as much of your hard-earned money as he can and then, kill you. That is exactly what happened to Philando Castile as that man was racially profiled over 50 times for seatbelt violations, revoked driver’s license and for having no proof of insurance and Philando Castile paid $6,588 in fines to Massa before Massa killed him by way of the slave patrols; the Klan decked out in blue.

So, as far as I am concerned, Jay Z, you can take your ‘Spiritual’ and shove it up your ass because continuing to ‘spiritually’ or otherwise tell the Klan decked out in blue to, “Don’t Shoot!” is akin to me telling another Black person to stop calling me a ‘Nigger!” It ain’t happening! The time is 3:11PM central daylight savings time, tell me, how many of my Black readers have been called, “Nigger!” today and the person who called you that was not ‘white’? We will never be respected by the ‘whites’, I understand that but the truth of the matter is that we don’t even respect ourselves. And yet, we want to yell and scream that “Black lives matter!” when we don’t even believe that because if we did, we would not continuously disrespect  each other by picking up a derogatory name that was given to us by our enemy and then turn it on ourselves. That’ is like me taking a gun from a ‘white’ man and turning it on myself. There are more than enough of them killing us, they don’t need any help from us and yet, we give them plenty. We shoot each other and then we get bent out-of-shape when a racist fills us full of bullets. Why is that? You don’t mind running through the streets, shooting, indiscriminately; killing toddlers, children and innocent women. Why then, should others who see you do this, think highly of you? You give them an excuse to say, “Well, they are killing each other! Look at what’s going down in inner cities!” Yeah! We all know what is going down in inner cities. Some of what is going down is most definitely not on us, but some of what is going down, is most definitely on us.

Excuse me! But we have lost. And we lost long time ago. We lost when we lost our sense of community, when we lost our sense of direction, when we lost our minds, when we lost our dignity, when we lost our humanity, when we lost who we came from when we lost ourselves. Jay Z cannot find you. Beyoncé cannot find you. But because we choose to continue down a destructive path and because we continue to live down to each and every stereotype of us and because we do nothing with our money beyond buying Jay Z’s latest ‘Spiritual’ and Michael Jordan’s latest sneaker and Timberland boots, our neighborhoods will continue to be taken away from us and we will continue to be herded into prison or to the morgue and despite cries of “Don’t shoot!,” KKKops will continue to shoot! Count on it! Because we cannot even count on each other! And that is why no one has come to our defense. No country that has issued travel advisories that warned its citizens to use extreme caution when coming to America has stated that America’s Black citizens need their help. Other countries see what we have become and they want no part of us. And I for one, can’t say as I blame them. I am tired of standing up for people who refuse to stand up for themselves. I am tired of attending protests to tell others to stop killing us when we refuse to do so. I cannot take to task someone else who is doing the same things that we are doing to each other without speaking out on that fact. Are we to blame for everything that is going down on us? Hell no! But at the same time, we are not entirely blameless since we are aiding and abetting our enemy in reducing our numbers. And so before you head to another protest rally, print two signs. One sign should read, “KKKops, Don’t Shoot!” The other sign should read, “Why Are We Shooting Each Other?”

Nigga ain’t dozed, I ain’t washed in a week
I ain’t changed clothes ’til the Black Album
Til I tapped out ’em, them niggas is WWE

“And Jay Z!, get the fuck outta here with that bullshit!”

Give A Badge To A Skinhead, Part 2!

they want us dead and they are murdering us

Give a badge to a skinhead,
and you’ll find a Black man, dead!
If the Klan is wearing a sheet,
it’s because they’re off the beat.

Supremacy’s found a way
to save the white man’s day
with lawful killing sprees
as Black men fall to their knees.

What’s more dangerous than hate?
How about a license to annihilate
the ones it fears the most
and with each kill, it brags and boasts
of how the days never seem to change,
it’s like shooting animals on an open range.

As you can see, I wrote this poem back on August 11, 2014 and it would take me hours to list the statistics of Black men, women and children who have been murdered by skinheads in uniform since that time. The beat continues; just not the heartbeats of those who have been murdered by racists with a license to kill.

It has not mattered one bit that video cameras were used to film many of these murders because even with video footage, those racists with badges get off scot free. They are never held accountable for the criminal shit that they do. And the reason why they are not held accountable for it is because before those racists with a badge go out on their slave patrol killing spree, they know that the only thing they have to say is, “I feared for my life,” or “I thought he/she had a gun!” And that right there absolves them of any wrong doing and so they can kill as many Black men, women and children as they can. That is the reason why despite video camera footage, marches, protest rallies, printed signs, worn down shoe soles and hands extended in the air, the killings of Black people by racist police continues, unabated. And it will not stop because that is the sole purpose of the militarized police force in AmeriKKKa. Make no mistake, your life, my life, the lives of our children don’t matter. We have never mattered in this hell hole and we never will despite our protests and demands that BLACK LIVES MATTER! If the ‘whites’ gave a damn about Black people, do you seriously think that what has been going down since our ancestors were dragged over here, would still be going down today? You don’t have to think extremely hard over that question. You already know the answer because the answer is exactly why you are attending another protest rally; the answer is why another innocent Black man is dead and another and another and another. And don’t even bother going home from the protest because as soon as you put your sign down, you will be picking it up again.

If there is still one Black person left in AmeriKKKa to kill, the killing will continue because it is the ‘white’ man’s intent that we all die! And that is why the ‘white’ man gave a badge and a gun to a skinhead and to another one and to another and on and on it goes so that they can kill our ass! Who the fuck in so-called ‘Black communities’ is being ‘served and protected’? The only thing going down between racist KKKops and Black people is that the KKKops are serving up Black people to the morgue and protecting the ‘white’ man’s so-called ‘property’! Because we all know that his shit is ill-gotten gains; stolen from the Indians and built up by our ancestors.

When Freddie Gray was murdered by the KKKops for doing not a goddamn thing wrong, when did the National Guard get called out? The Guard was called out when you started fucking up some liquor stores and a CVS. They can’t have that. That CVS store and some goddamn liquor stores, illegally operated in areas not even zoned for liquor stores, and owned by Koreans were more important than you protesting the outright murder of Freddie Gray by racist KKKops and the ‘house negroes’ that do their dirty work for them.

And now, we have buried Philando Castile and Alton Sterling. Which one of us is next? Because make no mistake, there will be a next and a next and a next! This shit over here is so bad that other countries and nations have issued travel advisories to their citizens; warning them against coming to this racist hell hole, especially if they have a permanent tan. Now, that right there, should tell you something! This shit is off the chain and all of this is by design!

And that half and half coon head sell-out piece of shit in the White House? What has he done about any of this shit? Not a damn thing besides attending a memorial services for some KKKops that got wacked. What Black person’s funeral service or memorial service did he attend? Crickets are fucking chirping over that one because he never attended one, not one and he won’t attend yours! And those Black people that were killed were innocent, INNOCENT! And can you believe it? Philando Castile did not even have a criminal record and was licensed to carry a gun and yet the man had been racially profiled almost his entire life and so it was just a matter of time before they murdered him AND they did! Even if he had had a criminal record, how is that any reason to kill someone? It’s not! But they blame the victim every single time, ONLY when the murder victim is Black. We are ALL victims!

So once again, who next???!!!

When You Get Goddamn Tired…..!

break the chains

When you get tired of dying before your eighteenth birthday
 and when you’re tired of hearing that you’re worthless anyway,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the fire in your soul
 will burn through your body that is four hundred years old.

When you get tired of police brutality and the injustice of gentrification,
 and when you get tired of the school-to-prison pipeline of no education,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the marching on tired feet
 will not be enough to quench the thirst for liberation and you won’t accept defeat.

When you get tired of the National Guard getting called out to stop you
 and when they fire the shots at your tired, worn-out body, though that’s nothing new,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you must heed the words of Malcolm X.
For no man can continue to surrender to ropes tightened around innocent necks.

And when you get tired of mass incarceration because of the color of your skin
 and when the cops are on your ass from sun up to sun down, yet again,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you will listen to the anger in your heart.
For no Black man, woman or child can resist the revolution and you must take part.

And when the smoke has cleared and so many lie dead or wounded from the fight
 and when you think that what you did was all for nothing and that good is never right,
 that protest sign that you put down, shove it up the white man’s ass and turn around
And torch everything in sight; every white man’s asset, burn it to the ground!

When you get tired, my Black brothers and sisters, you will realize that protest signs, marches and hands raised in the air is not enough. When you get tired of hearing that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is to be revered for his non-violent stance of supplicating himself to his enemy and encouraged you to do likewise, you will then realize your only course of action and you will take it. The white man knows this and that is why he is hell-bent on incarcerating you off the streets; that is why he is hell-bent on donning that blue or brown uniform, once he sheds his white sheet, and commences to riddle you with hundreds of bullets. He knows what’s coming. You don’t. Not yet. But you will. Yes, that’s right. He already knows what his fate is and who is going to seal it, but you don’t. Not yet. But you will. And when you do, it is game over for him and he knows that!

I don’t even call it violence when it’s in self defense; I call it intelligence. –

“There She Is, Miss Alabama, Now Fire Her!”

former Miss Alabama

 

 

And another Black woman’s career bites the dust because she had the audacity to state that the so-called ‘Dallas Sniper’, Micah Xavier Johnson, was a ‘martyr’.

Former Miss Alabama Suspended From TV Gig for Calling Dallas Sniper a ‘Martyr’

“I’m dealing with a bit of guilt, because I don’t feel sad for the officers that lost their lives — and I know that that’s really not my heart,” James began. “I value human life and I want to feel sad for them, but I can’t help but feeling like the shooter was a martyr — and I know it’s not the right way to feel because nobody deserves to lose their lives, and I know that those police officers had families and people who loved them.”

“I’m so torn up in my heart about seeing these … black men being gunned down in my community that I can’t help but feel like I wasn’t surprised what the shooter did to those cops,” she added. “And I think a lot of us feel the same way.”

I feel the same way! So, boss, can I have my pink slip now? Oh damn! That’s right! I am the boss and so I would have to fire myself! Oops! I guess I can get away with speaking MY own mind. Sorry Ms. Alabama! Next time, work two jobs like I did, save your money, secretly record your bosses, make extra tapes and then send them to corporate headquarters, stating that several tapes have also gone out to different independent news agencies. You will  then be your own boss in no time flat! I guarantee it!

Black folks, are you taking note? Miss Alabama was fired because she can identify with those who look like her getting themselves murdered by racist KKKops and not appreciating it. What she can also appreciate is the fact that she cannot bring herself to go into a decline because it has been alleged that a Black man went the fuck off in Dallas, TX for the very same reasons that upset Ms. Alabama, only he is alleged to have taken his rage a step further and wacked a few KKKops in retaliation for KKKops murdering innocent Black men like Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

So, don’t you dare go to work tomorrow and show your ‘solidarity’ with those who look like you and who were gunned down in what amounts to ‘cold blood’ since that has been defined as, ‘innocent’. You best confess that you are highly likely to become prostrate with grief and then get to moaning and some mo shit and claim that it is just so terribly, terribly frustrating to you that those nice, kind and considerate KKKops who murdered Alton Sterling and Philando Castile are receiving only negativity from the Black community. You cannot understand why Black people would be upset over KKKop killings of other Black people. You should then tell your boss that you need some time off so that you can have some t-shirts printed that read, “KKKop, Shoot Me Now And Get It Over With, I Don’t Deserve To Live!” This should go on the front and on the back, a shriveled, limp, pink dick with a caption underneath it saying, “My Death Makes KKKops Cum!”

Ms. Alabama, in the above picture, is understandably broken up, just as millions of Black people in AmeriKKKa, are broken up over the continued senseless murder of us at the hands of racist KKKops. And with the history of this shithole being what it is, we have more than enough of a right to state how we feel. But you see, if we don’t feel what ‘white’ folks think we should feel, then we cannot express those feelings without retaliation. And since most of us work for them, live in their apartment buildings and must interact with them on a daily basis, why, we must forever remain silent with regards to our true feelings and, instead, opt to be ‘politically correct’ and in this case, political correctness dictates that we shed copious tears for those KKKops that got wacked in Dallas, TX while remaining stony-faced over the police killings of those who look like us. Since when did we as Black people obtain the freedom to ‘feel’? We are not ‘human’, don’t you know? What ‘white’ person gave us the right to express our true feelings? We are still on the plantation and we had better recognize that we never got off it. Your chain length is but so long and if you by some chance, break that chain and go further than they intend that you should go, well now, they have the means to fuck your day up, AND how! So, don’t get any fancy ideas that you’ve got freedom and rights because the only freedom you’ve got is the freedom to head straight inside a ‘for-profit’ prison, other than that, dead, is your means to freedom. Aren’t we the lucky ones?

Revolution! Revolution! Revolution!

 

Malcolm X quotes

 

 

It would seem that TPTB want to see some sort of re-action from ‘We The People’. Will it be peaceful or will it be violent? I do believe, THEY have decided the course that the next revolution will take. And this is just a little poem to get you in the mood.

The Revolution IS Coming!

How can I be content if my brother is in pain?
I would not turn my back if I saw my sister slain.

The world has had enough and the rich should lose their head.
Those who try and stop us will lie among the dead.

Peaceful, we have tried and it only got us where?
Poor, homeless or dead, they don’t really care.

No corner of the globe should hide these thieves and liars.
Light a billion torches, fry their spying wires.

Rest is for the dead and we have no time to waste.
They must know real fear, they must have a taste.

They have played their hand and took our rights away.
Do you think we’ll get them back if only we will pray?

Stand strong and hold your ground for they cannot kill us all.
Tear down the corporate sign and breach the outer wall.

Progress must be made in one form or another.
The protests, they have squashed and dissent, they try and smother.

Hate has been their tool and we must overcome.
They treat us just like dirt and they tell us we are scum.

You should not run, you should not hide for the stakes are just too high.
And when they come for you, will you fight or will you die?

There comes a time in everyones life when they must make a choice. We have been headed in this direction for some time. Those who initiated this hellish nightmare that is going down have been preparing for this while we were distracted. And now that what is in store for us can no longer be denied, you have a choice to make. You can either go out obediently and quietly or you can make a noise before you go out. Which is it going to be? They are hoping that we will continue to acquiesce to getting our asses handed to us. They are thinking that we have, for too long, been lulled into apathy and complacency and in addition to this, they have been destroying us little by little and weakening our bodies by filling us with poisonous toxins. This was intentional. For those of you who can remember a few decades back, you can remember a time when obesity was not as prevalent as it is today. And we did not need Facebook or Twitter to help us remember what we saw with our very own eyes because back in my day, people actually talked face-to-face with one another. There were no smartphones, nor was there Skype and the like. And I for one, can remember when food tasted good and was good for you, not like this garbage that we spend much more on than we used to and quality is non-existent.

As long as we are alive, we can change things. The obstacles may seem insurmountable but the alternative is not to be endured. If we don’t take a stand, we never will. Anything that comes too easily is not worth having and when you have given something your all and you see the results, you appreciate it more. Just something to think about as you look around and wonder what in the hell happened? This is not how we are supposed to live. Too many people are hooked on drugs to escape the pain of reality and this just should not be. Too many people are imprisoned today and this was not always the case. But you must understand that psychopathic monsters have been in control of us for far too long and it is time to show them that we will not continue to aid in our demise. We will resist. That is why those worms militarized AmeriKKKa and terrorized the rest of the world into submission. They expect the status quo to remain; they expect to continue their reign of terror, brutality, destruction and death.

Those of you who have family members in police departments all across AmeriKKKa, you should be telling your daddy or your spouse or your brother, cousin, uncle, aunt or sister, if they are a cop, that you will be facing them the next time another cop kills an innocent man, woman or child. You should tell them that just because they lost their humanity, it does not mean that you have lost yours. And for those of you who have loved ones in the military, ask them if they would appreciate some general commanding them to send a drone to kill you. Ask them if they were so ordered, would they murder you for standing up to tyranny, racism, brutality and war crimes. You may not want to hear the answer, but you should know all the same, if you don’t already.

We could all play a part to ensure a better future for us all. Most of us have children and we want our children to have a future. They will not if we continue to remain hypnotized by those who would continue to control us if we allow them to. Look into the face of your child. Go outside and watch the children playing together. We used to do that. We were not always looking at skin color. I know I didn’t. When I was a child, I did not play with someone based solely on their skin color, I played with them because they were human, just like me. Just like us all! Why did we, collectively, move away from each other; physically, spiritually and emotionally? If you can answer that question, honestly, then that is a start!

Choir Boys Were Killed In Dallas By A Demented Ex-Soldier……

KKKops

 

….so says Barack Obama.

“The demented individual who carried out those attacks in Dallas, he’s no more representative of African Americans than the shooter in Charleston was representative of white Americans.”

Oh, but that is where you are wrong Obama. The so-called ‘demented’ individual, Mr. Micah Xavier Johnson just could not have been ‘demented’ because after all, he was given a clean bill of both mental health and physical health by the U.S. military since he had been deemed fit enough to be deployed to the killing fields of Afghanistan or was he simply over there protecting the poppy plants that when harvested will be given a free flight straight to the United States and into the mouths and arms of the opioid drug addicted Americans, especially ‘white’ AmeriKKKans?

All of a sudden, this man who had served in the U.S. military is now ‘demented’ when he was, apparently, not demented enough to be rejected from serving in the military. The article goes on to state that Micah Xavier Johnson killed fellow veterans seeing as how four of the five KKKops who got wacked had served in the military. Wow! And they came straight from warzones with the killing fever and immediately joined the police force which enabled them to continue to gun down people even though they can do that in their spare time since they obviously have access to weapons by virtue of their military clearance since they’ve been cleared of having mental disorders that would deem them too ‘demented’ to purchase weapons. So, what Obama said does not even make any sense. Who is writing his speeches for him? Fire him!

But the good part is that according to Obama, Micah Xavier Johnson does not represent African-Americans. He has that part right because Micah Xavier Johnson was not an African-American, he was an American citizen. He was not born in Africa and immigrated to America and acquired American citizenship after having taken some citizenship test,  he was born in AmeriKKKa! Micah Xavier Johnson is representative of descendants of slaves who are fed the fuck up with seeing their numbers declining daily simply because their ancestors were dragged over here and they are the result of slavery. Oh, yes! Many of us are just as fed up as Micah Xavier Johnson was, now you think on that Obama!

And as for Dylann Storm Roof, that piece of white shit that murdered those nine Black people while they were holding Bible study in a church in Charleston, SC on June 17, 2015, he is most definitely representative of his group, the Ku Klux Klan, The Aryan Brotherhood and other skinhead groups that are endemic to this shithole. This shithole was founded by so-called ‘white supremacists’ who deemed any other group to be inferior and therefore, incapable of displaying human qualities and who were then relegated to three-fifths human status and were enslaved or rounded up and placed on reservations. And the very same continues to this very day. How does it not? Black people are enslaved in for-profit prisons by the millions and if they do not make it inside the actual prison, they are shot dead before they can be handcuffed and escorted there. And where are the Indians? Why, they are for the most part, still living in abject poverty on reservations all across this shithole and no one even mentions their plight. So, tell me, what the fuck has changed in over 400 years? I’ll tell you. Not a goddamn thing.

But coonhead Obama wants to get up there and declare who is not representative of what when he is not even representative of Black people in this shithole. He has never once stood up and did a goddamn thing about a goddamn thing that pertains to racism, police brutality, discrimination, bigotry, unfair housing practices, the school-to-prison pipeline, mass homelessness, poverty, wage stagnation, the high unemployment rate of Black men and income inequality, but he wants to mouth off about what is and is not representative of what the fuck?

And oh yes, I did mention ‘choir boys’ did I not? Indeed I did. The article also states that one of the wacked officers routinely gave out department stickers to children at his church. Again, WOW! That was just so thoughtful and considerate of him. Now, after signing up to shoot people and rob them of their money, erroneously, because that is what is happening when KKKops pull people over for bullshit reasons and cite them for a seatbelt violation which means that they must pay a fine, they are not looking out for the welfare of the driver, they are merely looking out for their own wallets because you have no idea how much money the corrupt criminal justice system makes off fining people for victimless ‘crimes’ and minor traffic offenses, this ‘choir boy can be found handing out department stickers to the little children in his church. How nice.

The criminal justice system is a multi-billion dollar business and I suppose no one has wondered why we never hear KKKops talk about a KKKops lousy ass salary anymore. Oh, they don’t need a salary; that ‘job’ comes with too many other perks and benefits like taking guns from suspects and selling them on the Black market or how about absconding with drug money from busting drug dealers. Do you honestly think that all the drug money that police take from drug deals they interrupt ever gets placed on a shelf in the evidence room? Ha! You dumb ass sucker, you! The corruption that is the very essence of what IS the criminal justice system of today, puts the mafia to the blush…AND…out-of-business.

Here in Menacesnowta alone, a gang-task force was assembled to handle the gang situation here and turns out, the gang-task force was more corrupt than the gangs it was assigned to disperse and the gang-task force had to be shut down and the public actually recovered damages. Yes indeed, our dear choir boys in blue who hand out department stickers to children in church are the salt of the earth, doncha know. No, you don’t know because they are not! So, for those of you who sincerely believe that KKKops are choir boys who do their duty of ‘protect and serve’ and then hand out department stickers to little children in church, one of these days, you will be in for a rude awakening because these choir boys are going to show you their true colors; the color of racism, corruption, murder and greed and guess what? They are indeed, representative of ‘white’ AmeriKKKa, and that means, YOU, the lovers of these choir boys; the Ku Klux Klan, The Aryan Brotherhood and all your brothers that make up skinhead hate groups all across this shithole called, AmeriKKKa who after coming back from the killing fields in the Middle East, take that same mindset onto the streets of every shitty city in this shithole! Now, suck on that!

A Travel Advisory Issued Against The United States By The Bahamas Government

bahamas 1

 

Now, we all know that the U.S. government is always issuing travel advisories and alerts against other countries, but in a new twist, the Bahamas government has issued a travel advisory to all of its Black male Bahamas citizens to use extreme caution when visiting the U.S., citing racial tensions that have exploded over the past few days. The Bahamas government goes on to state that all of its Black male citizens who are visiting the United States should cooperate fully with law enforcement and be non-confrontational.

Excuse me! But, that is not going to work, Bahamas Government! Just you ask Philando Castile. He cooperated fully with law enforcement and was non-confrontational and he is still dead; shot multiple times while sitting in his vehicle with his girlfriend and her four-year old daughter. The man was merely complying with the officer’s request to retrieve his ID to show for identification purposes and he was shot and killed for doing so. So, just what did the man do to cause his own demise? Not a goddamn thing! He did everything right and yet he is still dead, so explain that to your citizens, Bahamas Government! Explain to them that it does not matter how careful they are when visiting the United States since they don’t have to do a damn thing to provoke these vicious and feral racists over here into murdering them. Black people don’t have to do shit, but breathe and that is against the goddamn law in AmeriKKKa!

“Why the whites are killing us”, is what the world should be asking of the AmeriKKKan government for it is not on the Blacks who are in AmeriKKKa for why we are here. That is not on us. Our ancestors did not row themselves to the shores of AmeriKKKa, whites did that and so why are whites gunning us down, eight ways to Sunday over something that their ancestors put into play? Whites shoot us because they are as evil and vile as what spawned their filthy asses; they are no different from their slave-owning sires. The evil and depravity that IS the white man will never die because it is inherent and cultivated from generation to generation; that should be well understood by all as it is clear for all to see!

I say this to the Bahamas Government, “Encourage all of your Black male citizens to NEVER, EVER visit the United States under ANY circumstances as that is the only way to ensure that they will not be racially profiled and murdered for having the audacity to not cover up their Black skin tone from head to toe.” But then, that would not work either because our driver’s license and our vehicle registration is pulled up by the KKKops whenever they pull up behind us and so they know the skin tone of the person they are pulling over. That is why whites are not pulled over because only Black people are racially profiled and it makes no difference how cooperative  and compliant we are, we still end up dead!

However, it is an extreme indictment on this shithole to have another government instruct its citizens to ‘use extreme caution’ when visiting the United States. If that does not tell you how bad this racist shit is here, then what will?

And then people have the nerve to wonder why those KKKops got wacked in Dallas, TX? It is because violence begets violence and some Black people are not scared of dying and are sick and damn tired of living on this prison planet. When people have nothing to lose and have been trained to kill, what will they do once they’ve had enough? Why, what they were trained and hired to do, kill! You would have no problem with the man who shot those KKKops in Texas if he was still over in Afghanistan shooting up some so-called ‘members of the Taliban’, but when he was fed up with people who look like him getting themselves murdered by racist KKKops and goes the fuck off, why that is just too horrible for words. No, it is not! What is too horrible for words is what led up to why this young man went the fuck off. That’s what’s too horrible for words. And I for one, get why he did what he did. An ‘eye for and eye’.

In the words of Malcolm X, “It’s got to be the ballot or the bullet.” The ballot ain’t working, so what does that leave? Exactly!

Rivers of blood has flowed from the bodies of Black people killed by racist KKKops, skinheads and the like and not one goddamn thing of any consequence has been done about that, but let a few KKKops get some bullets up their ass and stop the goddamn presses already! No, that shit don’t cut no ice with me, not a bit of it! Every Black nation and country on this planet should be issuing the same advisory and alert that the Bahamas government issued because it applies to every Black skinned man, woman and child on this planet and it should forever remain in effect.

And once again, not one goddamn word from the international community about what amounts to genocide against an entire group of innocent people in a country they never asked to be in since our ancestors were dragged here. And yes, I will continue to state the facts for all to see as to why the fuck we are here looking up in your pale ass face, Caucasians! You think that many of us want to look at you sickly looking pale-skinned vile ass creatures? Fuck no! But your ancestors are the reason why we are here and don’t give me that bullshit about how your ancestors didn’t own any slaves. If you fucking know right from wrong then you fucking know that what is going down in this shithole on Black people is wrong in every way possible! And what the fuck do you do about it? Why, you continue to condone it and then a few of you will get up off your ass for five minutes and pick up a lame ass protest sign stating that “Black lives matter!” You don’t fucking think that because if you did, you’d tell that racist KKKop that you married to “Fuck off!” But you don’t because you’re living large and in charge from all the drug money and gun running and bribes that he is taking. There is no other inherently corrupt organization than that of the criminal ‘justice’ system. The mafia only wish they could compete with the likes of the U.S. government’s criminal ‘justice’ system; a system that is designed to capture and enslave the Black population in AmeriKKKa. But the fact is, the slave patrols are just so trigger happy, many of the slaves don’t even make it behind bars. But then, that’s okay too because the only other good ‘nigger’ is a dead ‘nigger’.

Yes, indeed, countries and nations all across this planet, warn your citizens, the Black ones at least, about what to expect when they visit AmeriKKKa. They can expect to get dead, that’s what they can expect!

Welcome to AmeriKKKa!
