Calif. Man Allegedly Killed Parents, Housekeeper in Upscale Home Before Going to E.R. – And I Bet Dollars To Donuts This Man Is Mentally Ill

As of yet, officials have not released what motivated this man to murder his mother and father and their housekeeper.

Calif. Man Allegedly Killed Parents, Housekeeper in Upscale Home Before Going to E.R.

“Something about the 27-year-old man who showed up Wednesday night in the emergency room at Irvine Medical Center in California led the staff to alert police.

Whether it was something they observed or overheard him say, police aren’t saying. But after Irvine officers spoke with the man, Camden Burton Nicholson, they called their peers in neighboring Newport Beach about 9 p.m. and sent them to a home in the gated Bonita Canyon community for a welfare check.

Inside the Newport Beach residence at 36 Palazzo, police found three bodies, they said in a news release.

Dead were Nicholson’s father, Richard, 64, and mother Kim, 61, and a woman later identified as the couple’s housekeeper, Maria Morse, 57, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed.”

Mrs. Morse’s husband also goes on to state that Kim Nicholson had given his wife a letter that was to be delivered to her attorney wherein she states that she is fearful of her son, whether that letter was ever delivered is anyone’s guess.

This is exactly why the title of my previous post is Mental Illness Is NOT Taken Seriously In America! Here is yet another testament as to the veracity of that statement. A mother was so terrified of her son that she tried to, surreptitiously, get a message out to her attorney in the hopes that he would take her fears seriously and act upon them. And yet, this is another case of “too little, too late.”

What must happen before mental illness receives the attention it deserves? How many loved ones or caregivers of the mentally ill must die before something is done about the fact that mentally ill people are left untreated and unsupervised by mental health care professionals while their care falls on their family members and others within their sphere who are ill-equipped to deal with these individuals? I have already stated this before and I shall do so again, so long as the mentally ill individual murders their immediate family or commits suicide, nothing will be done and quite frankly, nothing is done even when they make headlines for having murdered a bunch of strangers.

Those of us who take care of the mentally ill live in constant fear for our lives and mental health care professionals are completely aware of this and yet, nothing is done. There are so many horror stories that mimic what happened to Richard and Kim Nicholson and their housekeeper, Maria Morse while we sit back and read each story as they come down the pike and stories of the like will continue. Those people did not have to die. They did not have a terminal illness and so were given six months to live and yet in all actuality, they were consigned to their fate by a system that is set up to make sure that this particular outcome, continues. A mother, a father and their housekeeper are dead because no one in the mental health care field gave a damn about the fact that their son’s mental illness was spiraling out-of-control and his immediate caregivers couldn’t do a thing but wait for what they knew was inevitable; their ultimate demise at the hands of their mentally ill son, hence the reason for the letter that Kim Nicholson was trying to get her housekeeper to hand over to her attorney so that he/she would know she lived in fear of her mentally ill son.

People like Kim Nicholson and her husband and their housekeeper were not able to wait around for Mental Health Awareness Month in the hopes of being interviewed simply because May has been designated the month to recognize those who live with mental illness. What about those who die from mental illness because mental illness does indeed, kill? Doing nothing about mental illness kills. Ignoring mental illness kills.

The Nicholsons’ son took himself to the E.R. after having killed his mother, father and their housekeeper and upon seeing that something wasn’t right about him, hospital personnel alerted the police who then went to the Nicholsons’ home and found them along with their housekeeper, dead. They never made headline news in trying to obtain help to deal with their mentally ill son, but they sure as hell are headline news now.

I live in fear just as Kim Nicholson lived in fear and look what happened to her. I have begged and pleaded with my mentally ill cousin’s mental health care providers to do something about his condition and about the fact that I live in constant fear of his mental condition and yet, nothing is done. This is indeed, indicative of just how futile it is to look for help from his so-called mental health care providers. If you have not read the post preceding this one, my cousin just engaged in a 15-hour standoff with police/SWAT because he wanted to commit suicide by train…AGAIN and so took himself and multiple knives to some train tracks, placed himself on the tracks to await a train, whereas he was observed by a passerby and the police were alerted to a possible mentally ill individual attempting suicide. When the police/SWAT arrived at the scene, he threatened to stab himself if they did not allow the train to run over him. Unbeknownst to me, he had taken several knives and left our home earlier that morning with every intention of never returning to it. He had seen his psychiatrist a mere twelve days prior to this suicide attempt. The 15-hour standoff came to a conclusion only because my cousin was shot with bean bags and pellets that hurt so bad, he had no choice but to surrender his knives. After a five day stint in the psych ward, he was sent right back home for me to deal with. He had previously attempted suicide multiple times. He had already drank bleach twice, drank furniture polish remover, drank Borax, slit his wrist, jumped in front of a train, taken knives and walked around Baltimore and was promptly shot by the cops and now this latest suicide attempt on January 22nd.

By now, I don’t know why I have not attempted suicide because I have no support. I have no group to go to and air my grievances over the fact that there is no support and I have tried to get my story told before it is a part of my obituary resulting from my death at the hands of my mentally ill cousin. And I am sure that what will not be included is the extent to which I have gone to get my story told and to get some help not only for my mentally ill cousin, but for myself as well.

As I type this, my cousin is on his way to attend an appointment with a new psychiatrist, or so I hope, since I could not drive him because the roads are bad thanks to this latest winter storm. Each day, I live with a sword hanging over my head. Is he going to take his meds? Are they going to continue to be effective? Is he going to change personalities again? Will he give up hope and try and end it? Will his psychosis return and make him forget who I am? All of that has happened. He has been in the throes of psychosis and come at me with knives and I now know how I would react in a horrifying situation, I’d freeze because that is what I did. When he came at me with knives, I merely said, “So, are you going to stab me now?” He looked at me for a moment and then backed away and, coincidentally, I was on the phone, on hold waiting for help from ‘The Crisis Line’ who eventually told me to call back at 9:00a.m. I was on the phone with them at 4:00a.m. Even our emergencies must occur between the hours of 9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m. despite the fact that “The Crisis Line” is open 24/7. That, apparently, is a lie.

And so for those of you who are going through what I am going through, I wish that I could offer you hope, but I don’t have any. Kim Nicholson, her husband and their housekeeper had no hope. But maybe if we are still around in May, someone will tell our story. Someone will write about our pain and anguish over trying to navigate through a mental health care system that is so broken, it is useless. Maybe we just need to make it to May and then we’ll be taken seriously. And yeah, maybe there will be world peace by then as well, I’m that delusional.

Mental Illness Is NOT Taken Seriously In America!

Despite the rhetoric thrown about by the president and members of congress and communities-at-large after supposedly ‘mentally ill’ white males go on shooting sprees and murder people in schools, churches, concert venues, grocery stores, theaters and on-the-job, mental illness is not taken seriously in America. It is only given lip service when individuals have committed acts that garner international attention.

My cousin is a mentally ill adult who has been on every psychiatric drug you could name and his condition only worsens. When we lived in Minnesota, the psych meds he was on started causing him physical problems. He became diabetic, obese, his triglycerides increased as did his bad cholesterol levels. His kidneys were also affected. Of course, his primary care doctor then placed him on cholesterol medications, diabetes medications, high blood pressure medications and that list was endless. Suffice it to say, the man had had enough and discontinued all psychiatric medications. As his body lost the weight, his brain crashed as well. He started doing things that he ordinarily would not have done such as going into the woods and trying to live with the animals, staying out all night long, getting little sleep. His eating habits changed. He started becoming extremely paranoid but also highly open to suggestion. He had won a lawsuit and started going to mosques. The Somalis in Minnesota had my cousin hand over his settlement money and all the things he had purchased with said money. They told him that he had to walk, ‘the walk of shame'(which is non-existent) and the man walked all over Minnesota in the winter, after having given the Somalis his boots first where then he was struck by a car and hospitalized for a few days. Upon his release, he was sent home, loony as a tune and with no psychiatric follow-up care in place.

A few days later, he was picked up by the police because someone had called 911 and reported that a man was talking to birds and was clearly out-of-his mind. They took him to a hospital where he was placed in the psych ward, loaded down with psych meds and when someone finally notified me that he was there, I promptly rushed on over and the man was a zombie. He could not even lift his head up. His arm where his veins were were full of puncture marks from the needles they had shot him up with. I almost landed a spot in the psych ward myself because I immediately threw sixteen fits about his condition. The man’s arm looked like a pincushion. They released him from the hospital after three weeks back to his home. I begged them to find a suitable group home or facility for him because he was just too far gone. His brain was basically, soup. They did not listen and so he continued to get into trouble and finally, a civil commitment commenced. He was still allowed to live in his own apartment and the court appointed mental health case manager and crisis teams were supposed to do home visits. They asked me to attend the first home visit. I had to reschedule an appointment that I had already made just to attend the home visit. The day of the home visit, I was standing at my cousin’s apartment door at the appropriate time, knocked on the door only to hear my cousin say, “Come back later, or don’t come back at all.” I knocked on the door again, and heard the same message even though I could hear female voices coming from the apartment.

The next day I called his case workers and demanded an explanation and was told that if my cousin did not want me there, that was his right. HUH??? They were there by court order and so his word should have carried no weight. It was their call. The next thing I know, I get a call from my cousin’s doctor asking me to find out why my cousin was not taking his medications since she had seen him and he was not doing good. I contacted my cousin’s case workers and that is when they decided to go in with the police and have him committed to the hospital. When the police entered my cousin’s apartment, he was in the act of attempting suicide by cutting his wrist with a knife. He was taken to the hospital and kept for another three weeks and was so hostile, I was called and the case workers begged me to see what I could do with him. Yeah! Karma is a bitch! This time they needed my assistance and yet when I arrived, I was cussed out and sent home with my feelings hurt. He was then released to his apartment. A few days after his release from the psych ward, he was put out of the airport because he had gone there requesting to get on a flight to Saudi Arabia in order to “fight the anti-Christ.” A few days after that incident, he was arrested for biting two security guards in the Somali mall after he had stripped naked and brandished a sword screaming out of his mind about how no one in the mosque “was praying right.” He was taken to jail, tazed and placed in a cell. He was then taken to the hospital and placed in the psych ward. He was released pending a court date for a civil commitment hearing. Before the hearing, he boarded a Greyhound bus and went to Washington, DC where he promptly jumped in front of a train. As a result, he suffered a fractured skull, broken neck, broken back and broken right leg. He was released from the hospital with an aluminum walker into homelessness a little over a week later. He called me and said that he was seeing “flying saucers” and that “people were after him.” The next time I heard from him, he was calling me from a psych ward. He had thought about jumping in front of a truck, but called the police instead and they took him to the psych ward. He was then placed in some sort of home for people who have nowhere else to go and the person operating the home was not feeding him. He called me and informed me of his living conditions. I left Minnesota and found him a place to live in Maryland. He was gaunt and still walking with the use of a walker.

When he was hit by the train, it was August, 7, 2016. By the time November 2016 arrived, my cousin’s mental state was rapidly deteriorating again. I contacted the crisis line, hospitals, psychiatrists; the whole nine yards. I was told to call the police to which I stated that seeing as how we were in Baltimore, the police would shoot me as well as shoot him. I left to go seek help and that is when my cousin, while in the midst of a a mental breakdown, walked into a store, purchased some knives, sat down on the curb of a sidewalk by himself, saw some birds and produced the knives and began, in his words to, “direct the birds.” The police rolled up on him even though he was just sitting and had laid down the knives and the police proceeded to bark orders at him. My cousin did not understand what was going on and the police shot him 6 times. He bled out at the scene, but somehow survived. Witnesses stated that he looked like he was mentally ill and that he did not bother anyone and that the police had no reason to shoot him. I was not there. I can only go by the news accounts I read. He spent a month recuperating from multiple surgeries to repair the damage done by the bullets and of course, he was still recuperating from having jumped in front of a train. He was also transferred to the psych ward at Johns Hopkins Hospital whereupon he was released about a week and a half later. He received injections every week at Johns Hopkins.

My cousin then became fearful of living in Baltimore as was I and we moved. He started experiencing sleep deprivation and after begging his psychiatrist for help and receiving none as months and months of sleepless nights came and went, on January 22 of this year, he took some knives and went to the railroad tracks, placed his head on the tracks in hopes that a train would come through and crush his skull. A passerby saw him and called 911 to report a possible mentally disturbed man on the railroad tracks. The police/SWAT arrived and a 15-hour standoff commenced. I know my cousin and when he did not come home when he usually does, I immediately checked the local news and of course, saw where there was a standoff with a mentally ill man. I called 911 and told them that it was my cousin involved in the standoff. They sent me a picture of him and of course, that was him. Later that night, in an attempt to get him to drop the knives and surrender, the police showed up at our door and had me on the phone while they produced a bullhorn of some sort to try and get through to him. It was to no avail. The standoff continued and only ceased after my cousin had been shot with bean bags and pellets that hurt so bad, he had no choice but to give up. His body is still covered in bruises, but at least he is still alive. He was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and then transferred to another hospital where he was placed on the psych ward for 5 days. He was given an injection, trazodone and gabapentin and then a taxi was called. He took the taxi to the police station whereupon they gave him his knives back(knives that they had taken from him after the 15-hour standoff). He came home with a bowie knife and a machete and several pocketknives. How that is even possible is still a mystery to me, hence the title of this blog post.

As a caregiver for the mentally ill, I can honestly say that it takes a toll on ones mental and physical health. I am not the person I used to be and I blame the mental health care system that is failing mentally ill people, those who care for them because no one else will, and society as a whole. I have tried to bring attention to the seriousness of the problem by writing letters to my local newspaper, to the Washington Post, the New York Times, The Guardian, The BBC, USAToday and yet not one of those entities is interested. Shows you just how much concern they have over the headlines that make the news regarding mentally ill people when they have killed 9 or 20 or 50 people. So long as they are basically perceived as a threat to themselves and to those who must care for them, who cares? The fact of the matter is that mental illness that is neglected or mistreated is more likely to result in a catastrophic situation. And those in the mental health care field are not doing their job. I can attest to that. Even those who are involved in the civil commitment process are not doing their job for if they had, my cousin would never have made it onto a Greyhound bus, but because his mental state was never taken seriously, this led to a horrifying chain of events.

No one is being held accountable for any of this, not the courts in Minnesota, nor the mental health care professionals who were responsible for the mistreatment of my cousin’s mental disorders. Those in Baltimore, MD were never held accountable for the fact that his mental illness was not taken seriously even though by then, he had a long history of attempted suicides. And where we are now, even though I have filed two complaints against his doctors and two investigations have commenced, I cannot get the results of the investigations and no lawyer will help me. AGAIN, this is why I say, “Mental Illness Is NOT Taken Seriously In America! None of you can ever know the extent to which this man has suffered and I as well. Be thankful every single day that you are not going through this because I would not wish this on my worst enemy and though you may think that there are resources out there, can you honestly believe that I have not tried every avenue? I am not one for simply whining. I have exhausted myself to no end in trying to come up with solutions and where to find help. There is none. I am left to care for someone who scares me since he has come at me with knives before. I sleep with my door bolted and with a chair up against it. My health has deteriorated to the point where I am always sick. Even as I type this, I am on an antibiotic because I cannot shake an attack of sinusitis. If a person can sue over hot coffee at McDonald’s, think of the irony of the fact that I cannot sue to obtain the results of investigations that were initiated because of complaints that I filed with the medical board that saw just cause to initiate said investigations. How much sense does that make when a person can sue because coffee is hot, but no lawyer will help me gain access to information that should not be shielded from the public over doctors who can witness their patient’s mental decline and sit somewhere and do nothing about what they are observing? Our cries for help went unanswered. A mere twelve days after we both begged and pleaded with his psychiatrist for help with his sleep deprivation, my cousin was involved in a 15-hour standoff with police/SWAT. How is that even possible when the signs were everywhere? And yet, were deliberately ignored.

So the next time a person is in the news for going off and shooting up 25 people, don’t expect anything to be done beyond what is being done, lip service about thoughts and prayers. They’ve certainly not helped my cousin or me.

Virginia’s Attorney General Admits To Wearing “Black Face” and Virginia’s Lt. Governor, Whose Face Is Actually Black Stands Accused Of Sexual Assault

My home state of Virginia just cannot get itself out of the news as it pertains to scandals. With three prominent politicians swept up in scandals, I wonder how many more will “come out of the woodwork,” so to speak.

Crisis in Virginia: Scandal sweeps up 3 Virginia officials

Attorney General Mark Herring issued a statement saying he wore brown makeup and a wig in 1980 to look like a rapper during a party as a 19-year-old student at the University of Virginia.

Herring — who has been among those calling on Northam to resign — said he was “deeply, deeply sorry for the pain that I cause with this revelation.” He said that in the days ahead, “honest conversations and discussions will make it clear whether I can or should continue to serve as attorney general.”

Then, within hours, Vanessa Tyson, the woman whose sexual assault allegations against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax surfaced earlier this week, issued a detailed statement saying Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004 during the Democratic National Convention in Boston.

Virginia’s governor Ralph Shearer Northam has already developed amnesia over a photo that surfaced depicting him either in “Black face” or in a KKK outfit. At first he stated that he was in the photo and then a day later, he stated that he “believes then and now that he is not in the racist photo.” And though many are calling for him to resign, as of today, he has not done so.

And now, Virginia’s Attorney General, Mark Herring, has stated that he too, wore ‘brown face’ and an AFRO wig to a party to represent a rapper that he loved to listen to. Now, if I liked say, Pink, I am not going to wear ‘white face’ and color my hair ‘pink’ to showcase my love for Pink’s music. Descendants of slaves celebrate holidays and we don’t go around buying up white shoe polish and spreading it all over our faces to depict our mortal enemy. But meanwhile, our mortal enemy is busy buying up black shoe polish to depict those whom they hold racist attitudes towards and think it funny and entertaining to do so. This is why I have often stated that we do indeed need to know who is underneath that hood and who is underneath that black shoe polish because how are we to retain any semblance of health if our doctor has just scrubbed off black shoe polish and then proceeds to don that white jacket and come at us with some medical advice? We need to know if judges have just taken off a white hood, thrown off their white sheet, only to don a judge’s robes and proceeded to throw the book at us because of their racist attitudes. We don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell because our enemies are not just ‘good ole boyz driving busted up pickup trucks and sporting raggedy ass mouths’, they are our doctors, lawyers who misrepresent us, judges who throw the book at us because it is their privilege to do so thanks to racism, prejudice, bigotry and white supremacy. Racism kills, racism imprisons, racism is why Black America is in the condition it is in today.

Governor Northam and Attorney General Herring are not the only two politicians in Virginia who are ‘guilty’ of being blatant, outrageous, unapologetic racists. Every single white face in politics and out of it is racist, bar none. And yes, I said, “Unapologetic,” because despite their ‘forced apologies’, not one of those flaming racists is sorry for what they are, not one! Rich white men never suffer consequences for being what they are; depraved, debased sociopaths hyped up on a fake euphoria of superiority. Those debased creatures are privately lauded for what they stand for even as they are publicly shamed. And so just as there is no need for Virginia’s governor to resign, there is no need for the Attorney General to resign for what will take their place will be no different and certainly no better.

As for Black-assed Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who is alleged to have forced a woman to perform oral sex on him, he may have to answer for that in a court of law seeing as how his accuser has been shopping around for a law firm. And though Fairfax has stated, for the record, that the sex act was consensual, apparently, his ‘victim’ disagrees.

What I am not understanding is why they are just now calling this, “A Crisis In Virginia,” since there has always been this crisis in Virginia since Virginia is loaded down with stomp down racists and sexual predators. This is nothing new. This is not shocking news. The history of this state proves that. Streets are named for Confederate generals, statues commemorating the confederacy are everywhere. Confederate flags are seen more than the national flag, which stands for the same thing the confederate flag stands for and so why two flags, I don’t know since they are one and the same. Who’s fooling who? Because if descendants of slaves are to pick which flag is more racist, there is no contest, both are equally racist. We don’t have to physically live on Confederate Boulevard, but we know we do because our history up to present day proves that we do. We don’t have to live on Plantation Lane to know that we still live there because we never made it off the plantation. We don’t have to walk the Confederate Trail because the confederacy is all around us. We live and breathe the confederacy every single day of our miserable lives, made miserable by ‘good ole boyz’ like Governor Northam and Attorney General Herring. We are systematically murdered by racists in white coats in hospitals and medical centers all across this shithole. We are systematically incarcerated by racists in black robes all across this racist shithole. We are systematically herded into ghettos every single day thanks to gentrification put in to play by racists all across this shithole. There is no aspect of our lives that is not controlled by racist shits like Northam and Herring and we know this and so no, this is not a ‘new crisis’ for us. It is an ongoing crisis that is a direct result of culture of systemic racism perpetrated against us by the most vile and deviant filth to ever suck air! It is a crisis of invention; a crisis of intention, the intent is to eradicate us even as ‘so-called’ fun is being poked at us. How sick is that???!!!!

Who’s in it for B?: B. Smith, Black Women, and America’s Normalized Contempt

“The story is both enraging and heartbreaking, depicting a black woman buried alive in a racial paradigm that thrives in her disrespect. Additionally, this story exposes B. Smith as a casualty in a much larger war against black women. Specifically, this story depicts the disrespected black woman as a spectacle rendered entertainment in a normalized evil.

Truthfully, Gasby, his child, and his girlfriend should be imprisoned for abusing a disabled woman and charged with robbery for allocating her money to fund said abuse. But because their actions are in accordance with the pervasive anti-blackness of white hegemony, B.Smith is not an abused woman, but an entertainer worthy of gossip not serious or legal contemplation. “

I am raging mad over this because this is just ‘business as usual’ when it comes to the depiction of Black women by white-owned media. Until we can tell “OUR” story, it will always be “HIS”story that is told!

What B. Smith’s husband and HIS daughter are doing to her is just absolutely unforgivable. That whoremonger lived a life of luxury and ease on B. Smith’s dime and now that she is suffering from Alzheimer’s and is not in her right mind, his lazy ass, has kicked her to the curb, while still living in her house, and has moved HIS white mistress in and so is it any wonder, he needed to take a ‘white’ mistress? He is trying to justify why he is cheating on a woman who is a saint married to garbage when all is said and done. For the love of !!!!!

Whispers of a Womanist

The most profound of black male leaders were advocates for black women. Men like Malcolm X and Thomas Sankara come to mind, their praxis and words providing enlightenment and inspiration to the black collective thoroughly vested in admiration and reverie for a lineage and legacy birthed from and anchored in the black female body. Though it has been decades since Malcolm X spoke the poignant words “the black woman is the most disrespected person in the United States” his words remain a truth lost in an environment of performative reformation. Perhaps the most imperative component of Malcolm X’s statement is that he describes the black woman as a “person,” an assertion contested repeatedly by a media and world infested by a white hegemonic ideology. 

This notion of black dehumanization is best illustrates in the news— a consistent source of anti-black propaganda. The Washington Post recently featured a story on…

Other Prominent White Supremacists Are Calling For The Resignation Of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam Over A Photo That Depicted What He Really Is, Just Another Coward In A Sheet And Hood And A Fan Of Black Shoe Polish On His Face

Hillary “Lock ALL Blacks Up!” Clinton is all but foaming at the mouth while calling for the resignation of Virginia’s governor, Ralph Northam over a photo recently come to light on his medical school yearbook page. This coming from a woman who claimed that Black youth were ALL SUPER PREDATORS WHO NEEDED TO BE BROUGHT TO HEEL! Seriously?!! Hillary Clinton really wants to feign outrage over Ralph Northam’s KKK outfit and Black face photo op?

“We also have to initiate an organized effort against descendants of slaves…. They are not just ex-slaves anymore. They are often the kinds of fierce Black motherfuckers that are called super predators. No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel, and the president has asked the FBI to launch a very concerted effort against descendants of slaves, everywhere.” – Hillary Clinton

Hillary and Bill Clinton’s ‘concerted efforts’ consisted of locking up as many descendants of slaves as they could and so is it any wonder that there are over 2.5 million descendants of slaves locked behind prison walls? No indeed not. I get so goddamn sick and tired of stomp down flaming racists pretending to feign outrage over what some other stomp down flaming racist does. What is the point in protesting the likes of your worthless racist ass? Descendants of slaves are well aware that none of you racists are any different from the next because if you were, we would not be in the situation we are in as it pertains to low economic and educational achievements, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass homelessness, gentrification, guns and drugs distributed in our few remaining neighborhoods teeming with prostitution and drug addiction and the list of the like is endless. So Virginia governor Northam decked out in a KKK outfit or in ‘Black face’ is not news to me. I only wish it were.

Northam’s hour-long news conference about a racist photo showing one person dressed in blackface and another in the Ku Klux Klan’s signature white hood and robes in his medical school yearbook page was an inflection point in the saga that now drags into its third day. The bizarre press conference at the governor’s mansion featured denials that he ever dressed up in a KKK robe and hood, pledges that he was never drunk enough to forget a situation like that and a revelation that Northam once did darken his face to resemble Michael Jackson during a dance contest in 1984.

“I believe now and then that I am not either of the people in this photo,” Northam said. “This was not me in that picture. That was not Ralph Northam.”

But the press conference raised more questions than it answered, including how Northam could admit he was in the photo on Friday before taking it all back on Saturday. And why he thought it would help to admit he had once dressed up in blackface as a way to resolve questions about the yearbook photo that features someone in blackface.

On Friday, the governor admitted that he was in the photo, but neglected to state if he was the one in the KKK outfit or if he was sporting ‘Black face’ after having just graduated from medical school, swore an oath to “Do no harm,” and then proceeded to hang his “The doctor is in” shingle up and make sick Black folks, well? And of course we are to believe that Ralph Northam is the only white piece of shit that has done this. He is an anomaly and not the norm? Is this what we are to believe by all the racists calling for Northam’s resignation as if his actions were an absolute and complete surprise to ALL the other racists who have done exactly what Northam has done, only their photos have yet to surface or have been destroyed so as not to share the limelight with Northam?

Gov. Ralph Northam admits he was in 1984 yearbook photo showing figures in blackface, KKK hood

RICHMOND —Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) on Friday acknowledged appearing in a “clearly racist and offensive” photograph in his 1984 medical school yearbook that shows a man in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan robe.
“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now,” he said. “This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment.”

But now governor Northam is suffering from amnesia since one day he admits that he is in the racist photo and the next day he “believes now and then that he is not either of the people in the photo.” It is quite obvious that governor Northam is not well-versed in doing damage control or either his handlers have intentionally threw him under the bus for how can he effectively govern a state when he appears to be suffering from a mental defect? Donald Trump is too but no one has called for his resignation and so it would appear that white men who suffer from severe mental defects should not be called to resign since every single white man who is in politics is suffering from a severe mental defect for if they are not why then is this country descending rapidly into a hell of their making?

There should be no calls for the resignation of Virginia governor Ralph Northam, just as there should be no calls for the resignation of Donald Trump because where would we find a white man who is anything other than that which is depicted in the above photo blatantly displayed in a medical school yearbook? Descendants of slaves literally put their lives in the hands of flaming racists when we go to the doctor. We put our lives in the hands of stomp down flaming members of the Ku Klux Klan when we meet with a lawyer over a personal injury lawsuit. We put our lives in the hands of monsters when we go before judges who, before donning that black robe, just stepped out of a white robe with a hood attached to it. And yet whites cannot for the life of them wonder why descendants of slaves are a ‘thankless lot’? What the hell should we be thanking you for? For having dragged us over here? For having enslaved us? For having whipped and shackled and raped our ancestors? For having experimented on us even as those experiments continue to this day? We are a people who are without a grain of hope because our lives are at the mercy of warped, twisted, sick and deranged, psychopathic, depraved sociopaths and there is none among the lot of you that this does not apply to. You ALL own this, pink-assed motherfuckers! So sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because you are nothing more than an opportunist who sees a chance to denounce what another of your kind has done only because he didn’t properly cover his shit up or destroy it. You want your fucked up political party in control and so you will pretend for five minutes that you are shockingly appalled over the devil we see when you are just as evil and fucked up as Ralph Northam. We are not fooled by your antics, not for one goddamn second!

Hillary Clinton had the goddamn unmitigated gall to refer to Black youth as ‘SUPER PREDATORS’ when there is no greater SUPER PREDATOR on this planet than those of the pasty-assed variety since who other than those parasites have managed to slither all across this planet stealing, enslaving, raping, pillaging and committing other atrocities all in the name of democracy and humanitarianism when those two words would refuse to even stand side by side with evil so depraved, it should not even exist? You self-righteous, holier-than-thou, stinking, steaming piles of hypocrisy, shut the fuck up! Virginia’s governor Ralph Northam need not step down since what would take his place would be his clone sporting ‘Black face’ underneath a fucking white hood! History has proved time and time again that the white man is the enemy to every blade of grass, every mammal and fish in the ocean, every animal on land and every pitiful descendant of slaves at the mercy of those twisted demons.

But all of a sudden, now that the shit has hit the fan over Northam’s photo, Eastern Virginia Medical School is now going to review their yearbook policy to figure out how this happened.

“In concert with our Board of Visitors’ leadership, I will direct that an external investigation be conducted as soon as possible to review all of our past yearbooks, determine the processes for publishing those yearbooks; discover what, if any, administrative oversight was exercised; examine our campus culture; and provide recommendations for future actions,” school President Dr. Richard Homan said in a statement posted to the school’s website.

“We will move quickly to assemble an appropriate panel to conduct this investigation — a panel of advocates for diversity and inclusion representative of our greater community, including African Americans and other people of color; a diverse panel that can apply a critical eye to this issue,” he added.

Now, there is going to be an ‘external investigation’, now there is going to be a ‘panel of advocates’, now there is going to be talk about ‘diversity and inclusion’, now there is going to be representation of ‘African Americans’ when this photo was initially placed in Eastern Virginia Medical School’s year book in 1984 and now THIRTY-FIVE years later, it is finally time for an investigation. We all should know that this investigation is a crock of shit seeing as how it is the year 2019 and they are just getting around to launching an investigation but only after one of their students is being publicly shamed over his yearbook’s photo choice. And newsflash, people who come here from Africa do not need ‘representation’ and descendants of slaves will never receive ‘representation, due process, or inclusion’ because we are Amerikkka’s shame and guilt, those Africans who willingly come here are not! We will always feel the lash of the whip. We will always be the brunt of racist jokes. We will always suffer for a crime we did not commit. We will always submit our bodies to be experimented on by those who think it funny that we suffer at their hands and die. We will always be the shame of Amerikkka no matter what you do to us because you cannot erase the truth no matter how hard you try. You are what you are. It is bred into you and you freely accept the brand of racism, prejudice, hatred and bigotry that you market because you are an atrocity that is no different from what sired you. Even as you state that you should not be held accountable for what your ancestors put in play, yes you should because you uphold and carry their vile legacy forward every single day and you do it with great relish, just as they did.

And so no, I am never surprised over the vile and atrocious shit that ‘surfaces’ whenever some other racist has an agenda which in this case was the so-called umbrage taken over Northam’s stance on late-term abortions. Northam’s racist picture did not surface because another racist suddenly had an awakening; an epiphany, Northam’s racist picture surfaced because of an alleged agenda over abortion, ‘alleged’ because what racist even cares about the life of a child? When whites will hand their children guns at the age of 7, how on earth could they then turn around and scream and wail against abortion? All whites are defective since you are too busy trying to destroy us than even attempt a cure for what ails you; racism, prejudice, bigotry, hatred and a predilection for murder. But then, without those defects, you wouldn’t exist because they are the essence of you. And that is why you must destroy humanity because you view humanity as an existential threat to your existence.

There is nothing on this planet that can make whites happy since they can have all that money can buy and yet what do they do with it? Build bombs to destroy and kill. Enslave, steal and plunder. Wage war and induce suffering. Destroy the planet while claiming “Victory!” Go ‘vegan’ while killing animals for human consumption. Wipe out entire Indigenous tribes just because they can. “Go green” while buying an SUV. Yes, you are defective and because you are, those of us who are ‘humanity defined’ suffer for it. We are at the mercy of monsters and so save your vile breath! Ralph Northam is no different from the rest of you depraved, defective, monstrous sociopaths!

On The Streets…..Of America

I just watched a video on homelessness and I was quite struck by a brilliant observation from someone who commented on the video.

“People oppose welfare but they defend monopolism with every tooth and nail. They’re both forms of wealth redistribution. The only reason anyone has a good paying job is because they’re employed by companies who are somehow protected from competition, either by IP, geography, zoning laws, or licensing and permit schemes. The same laws prohibit individuals from employing themselves, resulting in widespread poverty. Anyone who has a good paying job has not a square inch of room to complain about welfare.

Nobody can be expected to get a job without a home. If all the money we spend on building new prisons were used instead to build public apartment high rises, crime would drop, minimum wages would go further, and modest rent rates could be a source of public revenue rather than a constant tax liability. The government collects more than enough taxes to guarantee that every citizen has a safe, clean place to sleep and bathe. I don’t care if lazy people chose instead to sit around their apartments all day doing nothing. It’s cheaper than prisons and more civilized than abandoning the poor to loitering the streets, prostitution, drugs, shoplifting, mugging, breaking into homes, sleep in filth, spread bugs and germs and get sick all the time.” – by Ox1A3C3E7

That comment is spot on! We have no problem with the fact that monopolies are encouraged when mere decades ago, there were laws in place to prevent monopolies, but that is a thing of the past. And now because of it, corporate greed runs amok, unchecked and add into the mixture the fact of huge tax breaks for these mega-corporations that have no competition and the people are held hostage by them. How many cable companies are in existence today? Telephone companies? Microsoft software is a monopoly since our computer systems use Microsoft software damn near exclusively. All of this leads to boundless profits for corporations while wages for those who work at the bottom rungs of those corporations earn wages that would not keep a hamster in feed, thus leading to hunger, homelessness and hopelessness. And what does the government do? It continues to aid and abet these corporations into becoming monopolies by refusing to break them up and also by encouraging the growth of monopolies with our tax dollars. Amazon is yet another ‘prime’ example even as Donald Trump likes to pretend to take umbrage with Jeff Bezos. My guess would be that he is just jealous of the fact that Bezos has far surpassed him in business acumen which Trump never had to begin with.

Meanwhile, video after video can be viewed that showcases the plight of homelessness, year after year and yet what is done to rein this in? Nothing. Just talk and more talk and hand wringing. Anyone can follow a homeless person around with a camera for a few days to get an idea of what life is like for the homeless, but when all is said and done, what good does that do? It only elicits a few comments and likes for those comments and suggestions and ideas and then on to the next. The sad fact is that ALL of us are headed where the homeless are. People are not paying attention to the fact that those who are sitting on Skid Row in Anytown, USA are going to have plenty of company. The plight of those who are already homeless will soon be felt by us all because no one is seriously trying to do anything about what millions of people are dealing with every single day. It matters not if I write poetry about the homeless or if people post videos about the homeless because if there is no real feasible solutions to throw at the problems that cause homelessness, the situation is going to continue to worsen.

Those of us who are comfortably looking at the situation from afar are not even thinking that we shall soon be in their shoes. Some of us are content to think that our jobs will always be there as will our pensions. I wouldn’t count on that because pension funds are being raided as I type this and Social Security does not pay enough to live on. And though there are suggestions to move oversees or to Latin American countries where your Social Security will go further, that is just not feasible for everyone. And with many of those countries that are named as great retirement havens in the news for having mass protests over a lack of food, medicine and housing, who in their right mind would head to those areas flaunting their ‘privilege’ in the face of mobs of people, gaunt and sunken-eyed looking to feed their hungry children? Take your ass on over to Venezuela and see how you fare. Try Honduras. Guatemala. Mexico City, Mexico. Either get caught up in drug warfare or get caught up in a United States staged coup against a Latin American country. But either way, your situation is not going to be roses and all things bright and beautiful forever. And even in countries like Ecuador and Costa Rica, the natives are going to get mighty sick and tired of foreigners coming in buying up everything for pennies on the dollar and paying them pennies to wait on them hand and foot.

And as usual, it is mostly whites who can take themselves off when the shit hits the fan for them while those who already have the shit hitting the fan, must stay and deal with a country that is rapidly descending into Third world status. Some of you may think it funny that hookworms are dripping out of the assholes of homeless people, nationwide, but it’s not. Some of you may think it funny that typhus is making the rounds of the homeless population in multiple cities, but it’s not. Add to those issues are the other physical and mental illnesses that most homeless people are dealing with and what that means is that hospitals are overwhelmed with emergency room visits by people whom they cannot collect payment from.

People try and act as though they cannot understand that mass homelessness costs more than housing and necessary services to stabilize the homeless once they have been housed and with communicable diseases on the rise, that is no small problem especially seeing as how there are diseases that no antibiotic can cure. When serious plagues start resurfacing and plagues never before seen start occurring, what is going to be the exit strategy for that? There is none. We’d ALL better wake up to the fact that homelessness is not just impacting those who are sitting out on the sidewalks or who are sitting inside tents or living in their vehicles, it is going to impact us all in some way or another. Something for you to think about while shopping for chicken wings and hoagie ‘meat’ for your Superbowl parties. What we ‘give’ importance to is just too ludicrous for words given the seriousness of the situation as it pertains to the rapid descent of this shithole called America. People are homeless, sick and hungry while those of us who have not yet joined them are anxiously awaiting the Superbowl since bets have been placed and there are parties to be hosted. It is no wonder we are sinking like a stone since we will get behind anything that will distract us from the truth and from seeing those who have already gone where we too shall go. And you can take that to the bank!

Is Meat Addictive?

Bill knocked this one out of the ballpark! Is meat addictive or are you just addicted to doing what you are told? Apparently, it is just too exhausting to think for oneself.

The Tobacco Institute assured many generations that smoking brought many positively wonderful benefits to many millions of people around the world. They blew billows of smoke clouds to win addicts to their sacrosanct product by documenting what a smoker liked to hear, to hear about research on low “tar” tobaccos, microfiber filtration, dust-free packages, outstandingly mild puffs — all smoke screens to direct attention away from the addictive nature of nicotine.

Lucky Strike

Within a statistical error range of 3%, you can find as many climate-change deniers among scientists as there are round-earth deniers.

Advertising suggested that most doctors chose Camel cigarettes. The brand that helps them keep alert to their patients’ concerns — a demanding practice according to Tobacco Institute polls. Doctors don’t smoke many Camels these days, but Big Pharma does not reward many physicians for prescribing vegan diets to their patients, do they?

While The Americans Are Dealing With An Orchestrated Government Shutdown, The Trump Administration Has Staged A Coup In Venezuela

Once again, Washington has installed another of its puppet dictators, this time in Venezuela, which is why Washington orchestrated this latest government shutdown that induced mass hysteria in the Amerikkkan people, just as it was designed to do. Amerikkkans obediently followed the ‘government shutdown bouncing ball’ which was orchestrated in order to cause the most harm by ensuring that federal workers lose their income while at the same time causing those who rely on federal programs to fear the loss of housing and food assistance even as Washington intends to allow multinational corporations to steal and abscond with everything in Venezuela that is not nailed down, especially its oil, gas and gold since Washington’s puppet dictator will allow Washington to dictate his every move. The U.S. does not intend to collapse without leaving a lasting impression.

 

Maduro claimed an attempted coup backed by the “gringo empire” was under way and urged supporters – and crucially the armed forces – to resist it “at all costs”.

“We are defending the right to the very existence of our Bolivarian Republic,” Maduro said, accusing his foes of trying to steal Venezuela’s oil, gas and gold: “They intend to govern Venezuela from Washington. Do you want a puppet government controlled by Washington?”
 
 

Nicolás Maduro, the duly elected president of Venezuela has given U.S. diplomats 72 hours to leave Venezuela. The Trump Administration’s response was to ignore the demand claiming that Maduro has been replaced by Juan Guaido, self-proclaimed president of Venezuela and CIA installed puppet. Quick to follow Washington’s recognition of Juan Guaido as the new president of Venezuela were Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Paraguay and Costa Rica. Brazil’s new far right president, Jair Bolsonaro, likewise followed suit since he is also just another Washington puppet.

Maduro is absolutely right in that this is indeed, “an attempted coup backed by the ‘gringo empire’.” And Russia has warned the Trump Administration against using military action in Venezuela to force Nicolas Maduro to step down and allow Washington’s puppet to become the next president of Venezuela.

 

We warn against this,” Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said in an interview with International Affairs magazine, a Russian media outlet. “We believe that this would be a catastrophic scenario that would shake the foundations of the development model we see in the Latin American region.”

Russia has supported Maduro’s government politically and militarily. The Kremlin dispatched two Russian bombers to Venezuela last month, a provocative move that raised red flags in Washington.
 
 

Once again, the Russians are trying to stop yet another blatant takeover by Washington of a sovereign state. And the Russians are the problem? The Trump Administration has stated that “all options are on the table,” including sanctions and military action. What has happened when the U.S. has used the military to do its dirty work?

 

David Smilde, a Venezuela expert from the Washington Office on Latin America advocacy group said: “Look at Somalia, look at Afghanistan, look at Iraq: all of those cases were supposed to be short military actions and actually what they do is end up generating enormous costs in terms of loss of life and infrastructure.”

 
 

But Washington does not care about loss of life or infrastructure since our tax dollars are then used to rebuild countries that the U.S. has bombed to smithereens and the people who are killed are of no consequence just as we are not, case in point is Iraq. The U.S. military destroyed Iraq and now Americans are footing the bill for the rebuilding of that country even as the U.S. government is ‘shutdown’. The U.S. had no business sending the military into Afghanistan and yet our tax dollars are being used to train Afghan forces to attack the Taliban while U.S. military forces are protecting Afghan opium in order to send shipments back to the U.S. and straight into the veins of Amerikkkans while at the same time claiming a “war on drugs.”

Every single time the U.S. sets its sights on another country, the people of that country suffer for it as does its infrastructure and those of us in the US suffer as well because we are told that there is no money and yet, somehow and mysteriously, money can always be found to buy more missiles and drones to attack countries that have done nothing to warrant the attack. And yet, the Trump Administration is yelling and screeching and grandstanding about the need to build a wall to keep those south of the border from coming to the U.S. when in fact, the Trump Administration’s policies are making life so miserable for those people, they are leaving their devastated countries and attempting to cross the border into the U.S., only to be met with tear gas and rubber bullets. The policies of the U.S. government has caused those people to have to flee their homes and now the U.S. wants to build a wall to keep out the results of policies it put into play to force people to run for their lives? That is insanity!

Iraq’s officials have stated that they want the U.S. out of their country. Libya is still in flames. Somalia, likewise. Afghanistan, the same. Yemen, indeed! And the list is endless. This is ALL because the ‘American empire’ is collapsing and intends to take as many countries down with it as it descends. It is like a gigantic snake that has had its head chopped off, but its tail is still thrashing about, destroying everything it strikes. This bitch, Amerikkka, even in its death throes is still dangerous and the only hope for other countries to make it through to the last thrash of this dying empire is Russia, China and Iran. Russia most definitely understands this since they have already sent military bombers to Venezuela, just as they had to with Syria because if not for the Russians, Syria would have a Washington installed puppet dictator. Maybe Russia is finally understanding what should have been understood hundreds of years ago in that no one can trust Amerikkkans. That ship should have long since sailed. Look at how this country treats its own citizens. Throws them under the bus at every opportunity even to the point of impoverishing those who work FOR the government. How can any Amerikkkan citizen still believe that the U.S. government gives a damn about their safety when TSA federal workers earn a measly $30,000 and have not been paid in over 30 days and come Friday, will miss a second paycheck? Homeland Security federal workers are not being paid and what was that agency set up to do? Keep US safe from so-called terrorists. The terrorists are sitting up on your tax dollars and strutting about the halls of congress and are inside the White House causing you much grief, anguish and hand-wringing since you cannot pay your bills, are about to lose your housing, are about to see your credit score take a nosedive, are about to lose your car and empty your pantry. The U.S. government is not some great entity that ever stood for a belief in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because the average Amerikkkan is anything but happy.

Are you happy to be broke and destitute and in debt? Are you happy to live paycheck to paycheck? Are you happy about the fact that the government can just shutdown at any time and force you to work without pay over a trumped up excuse for the shutdown? Are you happy to see politicians that they claim you elect, act like children on the playground while your lives are spiraling down, out of control? Do you think the homeless are happy to be living on the streets? Do you think they are happy to have worms falling out of their asshole since hookworm has made a comeback which until now was only found in third world countries? Do you think they are happy battling typhus and hepatitis A,B and C? Do you think children are happy to go to bed at night with their stomachs growling? Do you think those people who just got shot dead in a bank in Florida were happy when those bullets pierced their flesh? Who the hell is happy in this shithole? Who? When federal workers are reporting that they are living paycheck to paycheck, how do you think others are living? Are you happy since you are sitting somewhere likely to blow yourself up with your meth lab? Are you happy that in order to make it through the day, you have to shoot up some heroin that your own government made possible for you to obtain since your government has instructed the military to guard some poppy plants in Afghanistan in order to send them here to feed your addictions since you are just too happy for words? Do you think Amerikkka’s 2.5 million prisoners are happy since many of them were imprisoned on bullshit drug charges while the U.S. government is the biggest drug cartel in the world? Yeah, we’re all fucking happy. Broke, drunk, high, stupid and happy, that’s US!

Stop following the bouncing ball. Look at where they don’t want you to look. When they are focusing your attention on a specific action orchestrated by them such as a government shutdown, then you can best believe that some foul ass shit is going down elsewhere. There is no U.S. media coverage of what the Trump Administration has been initiating in Venezuela. If they are so worried about people from south of the border coming to the U.S. then why are they hell bent on doing everything that would increase the numbers of those attempting to cross the border? It is all smoke and mirrors, people! Smoke and mirrors. Every single news article that I have read has been all about bad news. Verizon is laying off a percentage of its workforce. Apple is laying off people. Despite announcements of increased holiday spending, stores are still announcing closures. J.C. Penney has announced that it may have to follow in Sears’ footsteps. And as this empire collapses, Wall Street will be the last to go down. They are the musicians on this Titanic, furiously intent on ignoring the sinking ship until they are underwater. But sink, they will. Again, it’s ALL smoke and mirrors, people, smoke and mirrors and ‘follow the bouncing ball’ as they fuck up another country by installing a puppet dictator while ignoring the legitimate one. Amerikkka has been in the business of regime change for too damn long and it will not cease until this empire goes the route of Rome and we are definitely headed there. Just take a look around you. I see no ‘amber waves of grain.’ And if you see any, believe me, those waves of grain contain a known carcinogen, glyphosate. And you can thank your government for that as well. If you have not gotten a clue yet, then I don’t know what there is to say about you!

I’ll leave you with a little poem I wrote a few years ago. It seems an apt ending.

Armageddon’s Child Is Born!

The mirrors all are cracking,
and the smoke is blowing away.
You can see the whole thing clearly.
Another crash, they can’t delay.

Follow the Russian ruble.
Focus your attention on Iraq.
They created another terrorist.
And now Ebola’s coming back.

Don’t look beneath the table.
The gamblers all are dead.
The cracking of their bones,
means they have no betting spread.

This show is over folks.
And as the Ball comes to an end,
the rotund lady sings.
And there’s no money left to lend.

The dancers writhe in agony.
Their frenzied pomp is gone.
And the badly written script,
only elicits another yawn.

The bull is now a bear.
And as I look across the sea,
another bear just shakes his head,
over America’s stupidity.

Say “Farewell” to all you know.
The stars and stripes are torn.
As they launch the killing drones,
Armageddon’s child is born.

In case you forgot, they just recently flew an American doctor back to the U.S. They believe he was exposed to Ebola.

A Tale Of Two Coons

First up, we have old school coon Jesse Jackson, who is all bent-out-of shape over what Donald Trump served the Clemson Tigers at the White House.

Jesse Jackson: White House serving Clemson a fast-food meal was ‘disgraceful’

The Rev. Jesse Jackson said he was “offended” that President Donald Trump served fast food to the Clemson Tigers at the White House after they claimed the College Football Playoff national championship.

“The national champions deserved better,” said Jackson, a native of Greenville, South Carolina.

With the White House staff on furlough because of the federal government’s partial shutdown, Trump paid to have a buffet of burgers and pizza brought in Monday to feed the Tigers.

Now, I will admit that I couldn’t give a shit for sports. Hell, I didn’t know anything about the Clemson Tigers down to the fact that they played football. But quite actually, I don’t care about what is fed to some grown ass men who are chasing some ball around in the hopes to head to the NFL. If they didn’t want the shit Trump served them, then they did not have to eat it. What I do care about is the fact that there are people about to lose their housing assistance and their food stamps and that will impact many, many children who are already living in poverty. What has Jesse Jackson’s coonhead ass said about that? Not a goddamn thing and he won’t because he has never been about a damn thing that counted because if he was, he would have been assassinated long before now. Any so-called pro-Black civil rights leader or Black nationalist from the 60s who is still walking around, free as a bird, is a coonhead sellout. Because the true warriors for Black people have all been either assassinated or are sitting up in prison or have died in prison or are in exile. Jesse Jackson’s ass does not fit the profile of a ‘true warrior’ for Black people.

Jesse Jackson finds it ‘disgraceful’ what some mostly white men were served at the White House when he is not concerned at all about the plight of millions of mothers and their children who will be sitting out on the streets if there is no end to this government shutdown, who will go hungry if there is no end to this government shutdown. Apparently, that is not ‘disgraceful’ to him because he ain’t about shit! Why did he have not a goddamn thing to say about the fact that those rich whites in congress and in the White House are sitting all up on the dole and are still receiving their ill gotten gains while those who also paid taxes to this shithole, since everything in this bitch is taxed, are about to lose their housing assistance and some paltry ass food stamps that don’t even extend throughout the entire month, because if they did, I would not be carting people to food pantries to supplement what their low wages and food stamps don’t cover? And some of the people I haul around are working two jobs and yet, they are shamed as though they are living the good life, sitting back feeding their children filet mignon while living high off the hog. That is so not happening. I am almost in tears when I see what is sticking out of the tops of the grocery bags because it’s not fit for children to eat, but since it stretches, that’s what they eat; cheap hot dogs, peanut butter and jelly, white bread, hamburger, Hamburger Helper, Ramen noodles and more shit of the like. And what’s sitting at food pantries is hardly any better. And I have seen white folks in those places begging for toilet tissue to wipe their ass, it’s that bad since obviously food stamps don’t pay for toilet tissue and so food pantries stock some and they run out of items of that nature real quick.

This is why the Black community is in horrible shape because the so-called Black leaders use the ‘bully pulpit’ for ALL the wrong reasons. Instead of calling out congress and the president over this childish display of foolishness in that Pelosi called for Trump to reschedule the SOTU wherein Trump responded with grounding Pelosi’s plane from taking her to Afghanistan and elsewhere, Jackson instead admonished Trump over what he fed some well-fed football players completely ignoring the immense impact this shutdown will have on millions of innocent people including children. Someone asked me the other day, “Are there any adults in the room?” To which I responded, “Quite actually, no and more’s the damn pity!”

And now we come to another old school coon, Gladys Knight, who just commented that she is most proud to sing the National Anthem at the Superbowl.

Gladys Knight Comments on Colin Kaepernick and Super Bowl: ‘I Am Here to Give the Anthem Back Its Voice’

“I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things, and they are police violence and injustice,” “It is unfortunate that our National Anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the National Anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone.

“I am here today and on Sunday, Feb. 3 to give the Anthem back its voice, to stand for that historic choice of words, the way it unites us when we hear it and to free it from the same prejudices and struggles I have fought long and hard for all my life, from walking back hallways, from marching with our social leaders, from using my voice for good — I have been in the forefront of this battle longer than most of those voicing their opinions to win the right to sing our country’s Anthem on a stage as large as the Super Bowl LIII.

“I pray that this National Anthem will bring us all together in a way never before witnessed and we can move forward and untangle these truths which mean so much to all of us.”

What is unfortunate is how stupid Gladys Knight really is in that she thinks that a song that symbolizes what this nation stands for which is theft, slavery and genocide, in her opinion, “needs its voice back, uniting us when we hear it, bringing us all together.” Who the fuck is she kidding and how many times was she dropped on her damn head? Oh yes, she will sing the first stanza of the Star Spangled Banner, just as ALL who’ve gone before has done. But what she will not sing is this!

No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And so what does the above mean? It meant that slaves joined up with the British to fight against their tormentors; their ‘owners’. And isn’t that what white men are called in the NFL? Owners of those mostly ‘Black’ players? Indeed!

The orders given to the Royal Navy’s Admiral Sir George Cockburn read:


“Let the landings you make be more for the protection of the desertion of the Black Population than with a view to any other advantage. … The great point to be attained is the cordial Support of the Black population. With them properly armed & backed with 20,000 British Troops, Mr. Madison will be hurled from his throne.

Whole families found their way to the ships of the British, who accepted everyone and pledged no one would be given back to their “owners.” Adult men were trained to create a regiment called the Colonial Marines, who participated in many of the most important battles, including the August 1814 raid on Washington.

So when Francis Scott Key penned “No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,” he was taking great satisfaction in the death of slaves who’d freed themselves. His perspective may have been affected by the fact he owned several slaves himself.

After the U.S. and the British signed a peace treaty at the end of 1814, the U.S. government demanded the return of American “property,” which by that point numbered about 6,000 people. The British refused. Most of the 6,000 eventually settled in Canada, with some going to Trinidad, where their descendants are still known as “Merikins.”

Francis Scott Key got his ass kicked by a regiment of Black slave Colonial Marines and he didn’t hardly appreciate that fact and so penned that vile shit and called it, “The Star Spangled Banner” and yet many Black singers have bellowed that vile shit out and they had to have known about this verse as well even if they did not take the time to read up on the history of that disgusting pile of shit of a song. The British refused to turn over what the U.S. government deemed its ‘PROPERTY’! And what the fuck has changed? Not a goddamn thing because descendants of slaves are still viewed as PROPERTY by this hated and most viciously vile ass government. You stupid, dumb ass Blacks like Gladys Knight, Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Diana Ross and yes, even dead ones, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin just to name a few have all sung a song that stands for a nation steeped in the blood of Indians and slaves dragged from Africa. A nation that proudly, to this day, confirms that it still stands for slavery and genocide seeing as how there over 2 million descendants of slaves incarcerated which is more than were original African slaves and the Indians are still segregated on reservations experiencing hunger, illness and abject poverty while the descendants of those who put them there are still waging war on the descendants of slaves and the Indigenous population.

So no, Gladys ‘dumbass’ knight, by your singing that shit, it will NOT bring us ALL together. It will NOT unite us. It will just make you look like the fool you are; massa’s fool and he will laud you for it even as he laughs at your stupidity. But since you’re obviously so played out that you need the gig, go right ahead. Step right up and display your cooning abilities since that is what many Black people are good at, especially those who can stand and say they marched for Civil Rights and against Jim Crow and yet will sing a song that calls for the return of ‘PROPERTY’, meaning slaves you are descended from. Yeah coon, your massas are loving the fact that they can get Black people to do anything! Hand them a few dollars or the ability to sell some of their music thanks to their face at the Super Bowl and they can forget and forgive slavery, Jim Crow, three-fifths, the one-drop rule, discrimination, racism, bigotry, police brutality, gentrification, mass homelessness and income inequality visited on Black people, not to mention the introduction of crack into once vibrant Black communities that left them devastated. Gladys Knight can overlook ALL of that for her 15 minutes upon the stage to sell a few songs on iTunes. You go with your coonhead ass Gladys Knight. Until those of your era die out, we will continue to see coons do fuck all when given an opportunity to speak from the bully pulpit.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Sing that verse, why don’t you Gladys Knight and see how fast your mic would get cut the fuck off. But you don’t have the balls to do that, coonhead!

Key got his ass kicked by many a slave,
who valiantly fought, each was so brave.
What Amerikkka wanted was for them in a grave
but they boarded a ship and from a distance did wave.

There! I fixed it for them! Now sing that, you lousy coonhead fucker! Two coonheads who could have used the bully pulpit to shed light on the plight of those who look like them if this government shutdown continues, but instead, one decided to take umbrage over what Trump served some game playing motherfuckers at the White House and the other goes on to defend a racist national anthem. And I have the nerve to wonder why Black America has made no gains. With shit such as this in our corner and white enemies on our asses daily, is it any wonder??!!

The Faux Revolution: Foe to the Black Collective

“As delineated on a previous post, R.Kelly’s media lynching serves to distract black people from the true sexual predator. The black man is not the enemy. But watching the news, this is the projected image. Malcolm X once said, “if you’re not careful, white supremacy will have you loving your enemy and hating the oppressed.” This is exactly what the media aims to do in its portrayal of the R. Kelly scandal. “

There have been multiple white men accused of sexual misconduct and not one of them has been prosecuted and yet, R. Kelly is being touted as some sort of sexual deviant by the white media which has largely ignored the parade of white men who have been accused of sexual assault.

Bill Cosby is languishing in prison and is considered a sexual deviant by the same vile white supremacists who are branding R. Kelly as such. And so this bears repeating:

““if you’re not careful, white supremacy will have you loving your enemy and hating the oppressed.” – Malcolm X.

C.C., great post!

Whispers of a Womanist

“Symbolism is the death of progress.” 

In battle, it is imperative—- not convenient or even strategic—to know your opponent. The contemporary climate obscures the enemy in a masterful attempt to control the masses.

We live in a world where it’s simpler to prove everything that isn’t true and increasingly difficult to justify everything that is. Western culture has tried to present the illusion of progress by twisting the perception of truth.  bc627a50b6b48e71a5b9805ae9ec4577--black-girls-rock-black-girl-magic

Altering the perception of truth, the oppressor appears as ally, and perhaps most violently,  perpetuates the revolution as having already taken place. White supremacists guised as liberals have orchestrated both the race war and the race revolution. This is perhaps best illustrated by Colin Kaepernick. After careful examination, I contend that Kaepernick was hired by the NFL to perpetuate a revolution anticipated and staged by the NFL amidst mounting racial tensions. I believe the NFL staged this…
