“Sold!…..For Twelve Head Of Cattle!”

cows

I was sold by my father for twelve head of cattle.
A child and not a woman is taken every day.
He raped me and beat me and now I bear his child;
proof of how I have been shamed in this way.
Do not praise the Mother Land for slavery is not gone
and every female child must endure this atrocity.
 Cursed with a little girl’s vagina that appeals to old men,
I am a short term fix; just a useful commodity.
 Little girls are abducted and sold by their kin.
Twelve head of cattle is the price that he paid
and the Blacks in America think they have it rough.
 Bring your girl child to Africa and she will get laid
by a man old enough to be her father’s father,
and then shut up about your problems across the sea
when we have it no better and no one to hear our screams.
For here in the land of my birth, I too, am an abductee.

This poem was born ‘thanks’ to a blog post I read titled, Tales of a child bride: ‘My father sold me for 12 cows’ over at https://talesfromtheloublog.wordpress.com/2016/07/26/tales-of-a-child-bride-my-father-sold-me-for-12-cows/

Once again, I owe N.S. a big HUGE apology because I tore into him something awful on my blog post titled Africans Are To Blame For Why Slaves Were Brought To AmeriKKKa! Fuck THAT Shit! and I was so horribly wrong, it is unreal! Because there I was just a going on and on about how African tribal leaders were not responsible in any way for the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and yet, slavery is still going on since little girls are sold by their fathers to old ass men as a way for them to escape poverty, temporarily. Here’s an idea, if you are hungry, chop your dick off and eat it and you will not be able to reproduce that which you cannot feed.

How in the hell can a mother stand by and see her daughter sold off to a ‘man’ for twelve cows? Fuck those men up over there and take over. If African women are such queens, then why are they allowing their daughters to be handled in such a manner? Why are they so complicit in the abduction, rape and beatings that their daughters are subjected to by these ‘men’ that get away with taking them and then paying for them in the form of cows and other assorted animals? And now, some are even selling their daughters for money thanks to ‘mobile money transfers’. I cannot believe that I had the nerve, the unmitigated gall to come to the defense of African tribal leaders when those filthy ass creatures are so vile, they are somewhere underneath shit!

And for those of you in America who go on and on about the regality of your so-called ‘African’ ancestors, shut the fuck up! I am sick to pieces of hearing about how we come from such exalted beings when, quite obviously, we come from stinking shit! I hate, detest and despise men because you motherfucking animals don’t fucking think at all. The only thing you do is walk around with a ‘hard on’ while looking for something to relieve it in and it really makes no difference how old it is or how young it is or if it is even human. You vile, degenerate creatures are unfit to even slither across the ground on this planet and I rue the day I ever laid eyes on any of you and had the audacity to experience lust for you savage, feckless beasts! I would not spit on any of you if you were on fire to help put it out! I’d say, “Burn motherfucker, burn!” And I would laugh all the while doing it. That is what I think of you! And fuck it! I don’t care if you are Black, white, purple or blue; it’s all the same to me! You’re all useless fuckers!

Poor innocent children are at the mercy of you two-legged dogs and I am going to protest over the likes of you getting fucked up? Nothing fucking doing! Those of you who are in America are spawns of that shit and so you’re no better! And I know this to be a fact because in my family alone, there have been incidences where grown men have raped children. So no, you nasty ass fuckers don’t get a free pass just because you are in America. You diseased and vile heathens; none of you are worth spit! And women would have been better off having never laid eyes on you!

But quite actually, women should not get a free pass either as you are complicit in what is happening to your daughters. I had a cousin that dated everything that slithered in and out of prison and her daughter was raped and given a disease by one of these vile creatures called, ‘men’. What is wrong with us? How in unholy hell can we hold our heads up and strut around as if we are doing all we can to help our children grow into mentally healthy adults? We cannot since we aid and abet in the continued dysfunctional relationships we see today in our children and their children. How can I be appalled when I hear young girls disrespecting themselves to no end when look at who is ‘nurturing’ them, if you can call it that? It is no wonder, no wonder at all over why we as a race of people are in deep, dark ass trouble. And as for that agency, “Big Brothers And Big Sisters,” just what the hell are you doing? Because if you assholes were stepping in to fill the void, we should certainly see some results from your efforts, but all I see is more of the same; children having children and learning nothing that will help them get through life. I no longer despair FOR us, I despair OF us!

What happened to this child fills me with rage and utter contempt for ‘men’. But you’re not ‘men’. I don’t know what the fuck you are. But one thing I do know is that there is nothing worthy about any of you psychopathic, filthy ass rats! Come at me with your fucking dick hanging out and see what the fuck happens to it! I fucking dare you!

Africans Are To Blame For Why Slaves Were Brought To AmeriKKKa! Fuck THAT Shit!

stolen from Africa

 

Now, those who have followed this here blog of mine for some time, know that I  suffer fools gladly. I will and can shut your shit down if you bring it. And it was indeed, brung. Never mind, my use of the non-word ‘brung’. If others can make up words as they go along, then so can I which is partly my point. If I can make shit up, then so can others and they do indeed, make shit up. Regardless of what you think about the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and who was guilty of what…….what does and does not make sense must take precedence over any supposed ‘eye-witness’ accounts and some would have us believe that ‘eye-witnesses’ are still recounting their stories to this very day. Well, be that as it may, if it makes no sense to me, it ain’t getting believed.

Historians can spin the shit out of history just as they always do. They can have people believing that the victims are responsible for being victims and unfortunately, they can even make the seemingly intelligent believe their lies and other disingenuous shit. I have never been one to believe whatever someone else says. I don’t care how many times they say it, if it makes no sense to me, it never will. However, this one topic is extremely important to me and I will not condone the spread of baseless lies. I will not have history placing the blame where it does not belong.

There have been many tales about how the African tribal leaders sold other tribes to the Caucasian slavers that were there for the express purpose of looking for free labor to build up a country that had been stolen by them. Why are we then suppose to believe that these freeloading bastards would think twice about sailing to distant lands in the search for free labor since they had practically killed off the original inhabitants of this stolen land? It would be a serious stretch of the imagination to believe that these animals would by chance and happenstance, come upon another inhabited land and have no intention of stealing its inhabitants and force them into slavery to build a nation on stolen land. Once a thief, always a thief and the thieving continues. But we have supposed ‘Black’ people who are going along with this ridiculous shit!

And so, without further ado, I am posting the back-n-forth because just maybe, some people will see that even to this very day, the lies just keep coming and the tall tales get taller to the point where people make no sense at all and don’t even know it. I believe it is my duty and my responsibility to ‘clear shit up’! This crazy mess is a result of my previous post.

N.S. says:

All of Africa is not that poor. A certain Asian region- that has more people than the whole African continent- is the region with the most hungry people. Africa also has most of the world’s top 10 fastest growing economies for the past 10 years and many in the top 20.

I agree, if anyone has responsibility for what happens in Africa, it is the inhabitants. According to all indications, the Africans- who are a completely different people than we are, as even they repeatedly tell us and plenty of evidence supports this- have a much, much better ability to control their destiny than we do. The majority of the world’s resources, a relatively young population, representation internationally, etc. Outside countries, no matter how powerful, are not the real reason the continent is not in good shape.

The present condition of Africa is very frustrating. However, we “blacks” are really not in control of our own ultimate fates at present. We have plenty of celebrities as well as not famous blacks who give to them and sincerely try to help in other ways even though the Africans have always shown that we are not part of them and that they do not want us. We have done much more for them than anything we had to do.

Shelby Courtland responds:

“All of Africa is not that poor”

Hence, that is the reason why in my poem, I stated “When Africa is rich and this we all know!” I do realize that all of Africa is not poor, how could it be with the tremendous amount of natural resources that is in Africa?

” According to all indications,the Africans- who are a completely different people than we are, as even they repeatedly tell us and plenty of evidence supports this-”

Well, I am certainly not suggesting that we all can just sit down and join hands and sing “Kumbaya.” I wrote a poem on my feelings and thoughts of Africa and Africans can dislike us until the moon falls from the sky, but that is irrelevant. We are descendants of people who were dragged from Africa and there is no getting around that. Maybe, this is partly why ‘Black’ folks can’t get it together now is because we continue to look at one another and see differences as opposed to likenesses. We are all hated by every other group on this planet and we better recognize that. I don’t think that I would be shot on the spot if I chanced to visit Africa, just because I’m not a ‘true’ African. Of course we have differences because of where we were born and many of us have no idea of our genealogy.

Some descendants of slaves claim they can trace theirs, but seeing as how so many of our ancestors were sold up and down the river to different plantations, this could present a problem. I am not attempting to hone in on Africa as though she would welcome me with open arms as though I am a returning ‘native daughter’, I know that just as there are starving children here in America, there too, are starving children in Africa and yet, I feel that they are in a better position than we are to do something about that situation. I am not claiming to have all the answers, nor can I solve an entire continent’s issues with just a poem, but I do feel as though my having written a poem about my thoughts of Africa should not be torn apart, piece by piece and dissected. Take it for what it is; a heartfelt piece of poetry; nothing more, nothing less! And I did include in my poem, the fact that I thought that the Africans could and should be doing more for themselves than they are actually doing. I get sick and tired of Black folks in America who always go on and on about the kings and queens of Africa and how they were just THE shits and we should be proud of our African heritage when, if as you say, ‘they don’t really care about us’, then someone need tell them that because according to you, they’re delusional. If they(Africans) were so knowledgeable and such builders and militants, they should be in a better position than they are!

Thank you for your comment.

N.S. says:

No, I knew you were not trying to answer the question in your poem. I was mostly agreeing with you in my answer, including the fact that it was not all poor and that they were in a much better position to save themselves, and I did not intend to dissect your poem.

I agree that many, many groups hate us- but it us blacks who lost our identity, not the Africans. There is a strange intensity for us that was confusing. For the accepted theory of how we got here we all know that very large number of Africans kidnapped us and sold us to other peoples who took us all over the world. Not all tribes were involved but far too many were. These Africans have left us there for centuries and in some cases over a 1,000 years. They have never claimed any of us as their own and not one country of the dozens of countries or tribe wants us as a group. There is far more evidence on why they are different people and everyone over there is from a different ethnic group-not including those few of us who went to live in Africa-, but this comment would become too long. Still, many of us have gone above and beyond in protecting, giving, and advocating for the people on the continent, including you.

The whole situation with Africa is complicated.

Shelby Courtland responds:

N.S., just what is ‘our’ identity? I would love to know. Since I cannot ‘identify’ with the Africans and according to many, we cannot even ‘identify’ with each other here in AmeriKKKa, just who can we ‘identify’ with? Our aunts and uncles, cousins, nephews, sons and daughters? Because from where I sit, many ‘Black’ families are having problems ‘identifying with their immediate ‘family’, much less do we seem to have any staying power when it comes to looking out for each other. This is ALL due to how we came to be in America. I damn sure cannot ‘identify’ with the whites even though, many ‘Blacks’ seem to be hell bent on trying, what with lightening their skin, taming their tresses via processing, weaves and anything else they can find to slap up there and tame the naps. We have no ‘identity’ and that is why we attempt to emulate others so much.

I do understand that many people think that other groups are appropriating our culture and running with it, but when all is said and done, I don’t think that we are merely singers and dancers who have had our music and our moves stolen. We are a confused people and it is not without some basis. Regardless of whose fault it is as to why we are here, the Africans who YOU say sold other Africans into slavery or the slavers that bought them. And I have a problem with that because as many different dialects as there are in Africa, I have no idea how European slavers could understand the language enough to bargain with African chiefs for stolen tribes. It seems that you would have us believe that over tea and crumpets, the Africans bargained with the Europeans and the Spanish and others over who was to go and who was to stay. Why were the Europeans in Africa in the first place? Gun running? Empire building? Hiding out? I’m not trying to be facetious, but some things just don’t add up and though I know I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, nor have I an extensive background on African studies, when something just doesn’t make sense to me, it just doesn’t. But be that as it may, this is all irrelevant seeing as how, we are here, they are there and neither seem to be coming out ahead, though we fare worse than the Africans, that is quite obvious. I’ll stop here because on this one, we shall just have to agree to disagree.

N.S. says:

I likewise agree to disagree likewise on our identity. Plenty of signs of our identity and culture are already there, but they have been hidden or need interpretation, and they are by no means related to just music and dancing. We will all know at the right time(and no, you won’t be in trouble, even though you don’t believe what I say about our identity at this moment, and anyone who says otherwise is lying), but for now, Black American or Black works for the great(one that is special like no other) and peculiar group of blacks in this country until we all know our name.

However, the non-European evidence for them selling us comes from their personal testimonies, some of which people I know have heard as well as what I heard myself(I heard one guy say in an informal, very casual setting that he didn’t feel guilty his ancestors had sold ours over here), other remarks which are on the Internet including YouTube, as well as formal acknowledgements by the leaders of Benin and Senegal and high ranking people from other countries in the Bight of Benin and West Africa of their role in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. There is plenty of evidence of African help for the Arab Slave Trade on the other side of Africa. We were sold by enemy tribes. It would also be impossible for those whites to go into Africa, seize tens of millions of us in the vast territory(even just the coastal regions) of the then unfamiliar West Coast of Africa with their primitive weapons(including their guns, which were only a little better than useless during the trade), and transport us to the Americas with no help. Unless you believe in the black indigenous theory, it is hard to see where there can be any doubt that Africans played an important part in our coming over here.

Shelby Courtland responds:

“We will all know at the right time(and no, you won’t be in trouble, even though you don’t believe what I say about our identity at this moment, and anyone who says otherwise is lying), but for now, Black American or Black works for the great(one that is special like no other) and peculiar group of blacks in this country until we all know our name.”

Oh, for goodness sake! There YOU go, with some special Gawd on high just for us Black folks in AmeriKKKa. Are you serious? I have always admired you, right up to this point! “One that is special?” Well, we could sure use some ‘special’ treatment from ‘one who is special’ right about oh…say….400 years ago???!!!! If ‘one’ is so goddamn special, then where the hell is this ‘one so special’? Waiting on an epiphany? A bolt of lightning? A Big Mac attack? What?

And as for me being in any trouble? Posh, tish and piss on that! I don’t believe in any higher being, be it ‘Black special’ or ‘white special’. And I am quite shocked that YOU of all people is sitting somewhere waiting on the ‘rapture’ of some sorts that is especially for YOU…OH! OH! And other ‘Blacks’ in AmeriKKKa, of course…and even little ole me who must be teetering on the brink of being “in trouble” with this ‘one that is special’.

Alright, I’ll bite! “Oh, ‘one that is special’ please hear my plea! Where might ye be? We could sure use some intervention right about now to get the pink Caucasoid all up off our ass. Don’t you see them filling our asses with bullets? You don’t see our children getting sent from the classroom straight into a For Profit Prison? What the hell are you waiting on? Why can you not just open the doors of all the prisons in AmeriKKKa and free our innocent Black brothers and sisters? Not powerful enough to do that, eh? I didn’t think so! Okay! Okay! Maybe, I am asking for too much. So, I’ll tone it down a bit. How about you at least get the racist ass KKKops off our backs? Damn! Still too much for you? I fucking thought so!”

I tried N.S.! I really did, to believe in your ‘one so special’ but it just ain’t happening.

“However, the non-European evidence for them selling us comes from their personal testimonies, some of which people I know have heard as well as what I heard myself(I heard one guy say in an informal, very casual setting that he didn’t feel guilty his ancestors had sold ours over here”

You mean to say that there are people who are still around who are centuries old and who are sitting somewhere in a hut telling about their experiences of actually witnessing the African tribal leaders sell members of other tribes to the pink-assed motherfuckers that sailed to the African continent for the sole purpose of finding ‘slave’ labor to build up a shithole that had been stolen and when it was determined that the few remaining original inhabitants refused to build this shithole to the specifications of their captors, into boats these inhuman predatory beasts, jumped, whereupon, they landed in Africa and had, handed to them, some Black captives who then thanked the African tribal leaders, IN THEIR DIALECT, for these hardy souls and then set sail back to AmeriKKKa? Someone is actually sitting somewhere telling this very same story from their own eyewitness account? For real? Really? I BELIEVE!!!! Oh, yes I DON’T!

“We were sold by enemy tribes. It would also be impossible for those whites to go into Africa, seize tens of millions of us in the vast territory(even just the coastal regions) of the then unfamiliar West Coast of Africa with their primitive weapons(including their guns, which were only a little better than useless during the trade), and transport us to the Americas with no help.”

I’m going to have to ‘shoot’ this down!

“primitive weapons(including their guns”

Primitive weapons? A gun? No N.S.! A primitive weapon is a SPEAR! It is not a gun and the Caucasoid cocksuckers didn’t have primitive spears, they had the technology to fill those Africans full of bullet holes, the same holes that they are filling us with so that we look like Swiss cheese on a slab in the morgue, N.S.!!

Well, let me put it to you THIS way! What would the tribal leaders have done with the captives of other tribes IF the pink-assed Caucasoid hadn’t been around, just attempting to gain some free labor to build up a stolen country? What would they have done N.S.? If there had been no one around to give these captives to, what would have happened to them? You can spin the shit anyway you like, but it is people like you that get on my last goddamn nerve! You sit somewhere attempting to downplay the role of those pink-skinned rejects from hell by stating that it was the African tribal leaders fault that we got ourselves a big ole case of slavery in AmeriKKKa, bigotry, racism, prejudice, Jim Crow, hate groups; the whole goddamn nine yards and ain’t a motherfucking pink-assed piece of worthless filth, guilty as hell of crawling and slithering over to Africa with the express purpose of bringing back free labor to build up what has now descended into a shithole.

And I also suppose that it wasn’t the pink-assed Caucasoid that even rowed the slaves back to AmeriKKKa. I suppose that the African tribal leaders accomplished THAT also. Am I right, N.S.? According to your way of thinking, I would be right on time with this because we all know that the African tribal leaders also had the boats just a waiting to hand deliver their African captives to the Caucasoid cocksuckers! Oh yes, indeed! After a meal of tea and scones and tacos, it was sailing time!

You know, you really ought to take something for this shit you’re spewing out. So spew it out elsewhere! Don’t come in here and vomit all over my goddamn blog with this vile ass bile because by the time those pink-assed skin motherfuckers had gone over to Africa and drooled over all those Black bodies that they were going to get by hook or by crook, they had the technology to do exactly what they did do and not a goddamn African tribal chief could have stopped them! And you goddamn well know this!

——————————————————————————

Some of you are probably saying by now, “Why is this even relevant at this point in time because it is all water under the bridge.” Would that it were so because you see, because of these ‘events’, we are where we are in this point in time. Negro or Black people or whatever we are calling ourselves at any given time in history right up to today, we have no idea who we are. And I for one am beyond fed up and tired with Negro people going along with everything that some shithead with an agenda is spreading. Start thinking for yourselves and if it doesn’t make sense, then don’t try believing it. Even if you stand alone, take that stand because I would prefer to stand alone than to listen to lies and then run with them. We have it bad enough as it is and we feel bad enough about ourselves as it is without being made to feel worse by listening to and taking up lies as to how our ancestors arrived on the shores of AmeriKKKa. Will we ever get reparations for our forefathers and for us? Hell no! Because make no mistake, slave labor is continuing today. Don’t think so! Who is sitting inside a For Profit Prison turning out items to be sold in stores for corporations? Newsfuckingflash! It ain’t filled with pink assholes! It is filled with Blacks; Negroes!

So don’t buy the bullshit that African tribal leaders are responsible for why my permanent tanned ass is sitting somewhere looking cross-eyed in AmeriKKKa! They did not ask those goddamn pink-assed motherfuckers to row to the shores of Africa and they damn sure as hell did not row our ancestors to AmeriKKKa! That ain’t on them! I don’t give a damn what anybody says. And if it don’t make sense, and someone is coming at you with the same shit that was flung at me, shoot that shit down! Don’t let them have you believing all up and down on some straight up bullshit!

This Is Not Africa’s Greatest Prize!

this does not make sense

Empty bellies and wide staring eyes;
this is not Africa’s greatest prize.
Why is she still drenched in blood red tears
and her riches are sold by white auctioneers?

Where are her kings from days of old
who sat upon thrones engraved in gold?
And what about her queens, so regal and proud?
And with grace and beauty, they were endowed.

What happened to this Africa of which I am told?
Just like her people, was she enslaved and sold?
An entire continent is under fire
because Africa is all they desire.

She is not poor, nor is she destitute.
She is not some worn-out prostitute,
to be used and discarded by Johns and pimps
and yet into the future, Africa lurches and limps.

This bounteous motherland is filled with oil
and with deep, rich and fertile soil.
Protect this land of wondrous beauty.
It is your obligation and it is your duty.

Her children are starved, why is this so
when Africa is rich and this we all know?
Not one child should be dying in poverty,
this makes the richness of Africa, a mockery.

I Am Not A Shell Of A Human Lacking Humanity!

no humanity

Strong hands rest on gently rounded hips,
smooth dark skin and thick, full lips.
Tightly curled hair, my crowning glory;
a picture perfect, wordless story.

Sculpted features, carved by time,
upon my face, not one wrinkle or line.
Legs that stand firm to bear my weight,
and a Teflon coating that repels all hate.

Torn from Africa and brought to these shores,
compared and found lacking to pale-skinned whores.
Desire in the eyes of sickly white men,
with fetid breath and reeking of gin.

Sent to the fields and whipped every day,
trying to understand why I’m treated this way.
No hope of returning to the home that I loved.
I’m poked and prodded, pushed and shoved.

Stripped and sold and draped in chains,
told that I’m an animal and that I have no brains.
Am I a beast of burden or the white man’s slave?
To him, I am both until I’m lowered in my grave.

He will have to whip me, both day and night.
And still he’ll not crush me nor dim my light.
It glows from within and it will not die.
My bloodline will continue to multiply.

I will not worship his god; a deity of hate,
nor confine my soul to the white man’s fate.
That is not who I am and never will be,
I am not a shell of a human lacking humanity.

I absolutely refuse to bow down and worship the white man’s god! How can I worship that which produced filth that would enslave my ancestors and me, commit unspeakable atrocities against us and then have the unmitigated gall to then turn around and head inside a church to bow down and worship a so-called, god ‘of love’?You cannot have it both ways. Love cannot come from hate and whatever hatred is praying to, it is not a ‘god’ of love! You are being played! Stop playing the fool!

The ‘white’ man’s god is not a god of ‘love’ if it produced him, he who is filled with nothing but hate! Negro people, where is your capacity for critical thinking? How can you emulate the ‘white’ man’s ways when you know it doesn’t make any sense to follow him over the cliff? How can you know what he has done to your ancestors and is also doing to you and yet, you take up his habits, his beliefs, his justifications for why he does what he does and worship the same false idols? Are you insane? Because that would seem to be the case from where I sit. You dutifully bow your heads at the table and pray to a ‘god’ that produced hate, bigotry, racism, prejudice and a false sense of fake assed superiority designed to keep you in your place when that filth that has you believing that you are inferior is rotten to the core?

And yet, you still believe that evil personified is going to save you if only you will stand in line and vote for that which has been trying Its damned best to wipe you out of existence? Go ahead and continue playing the stooge for something that is less than an animal and is planning your genocide at all times!

Clinton Praises Dead Racists Reagans Response To HIV-AIDS!

designer disease

 

 

The warmonger, Hillary Clinton is a real piece of work!

“Because of both President and Mrs. Reagan in particular Mrs. Reagan we started a national conversation. When before nobody would talk about it(HIV-AIDS), nobody wanted to do anything about it,” Clinton told MSNBC.

Who in hell actually had a single thought in their head that Ronald and Nancy Reagan gave a damn about a disease that was associated with homosexuals and which was also somehow, magically infecting millions of Africans and so-called African-Americans? HIV-AIDS was a man-made disease that was designed to eradicate, wipe-out and genocide those in society who were already deemed, genetically defective or impure and who were sadly lacking in morals as designated by the Christian conservative right-wing moral police.

When called out for her ridiculousness in hailing the Reagans as proponents of any efforts to spearhead a movement to focus the spotlight on the epidemic of HIV-AIDS, warmonger Hillary Clinton then backtracked and offered up an apology stating that:

“While the Reagans were strong advocates for stem cell research and finding a cure for Alzheimer’s research, I misspoke about their record on HIV and AIDS,” Clinton said in a statement tweeted Friday. “For that, I m sorry.”

Of course, she’s sorry. And by just saying, “I’m sorry,” that just absolves her of willfully making false statements while in possession of the facts. That warmonger knew exactly what the Reagans had advocated strongly for and she knew that HIV-AIDS was not on the list. Since Ronald ‘fake ass actor’ Reagan himself was suffering from Alzheimer’s, dementia and/or senility, why would it be a stretch for the Reagans to focus on that disease? It wouldn’t. Anything to help that old racist bastard Reagan with his trickle down voodoo economics which is partly to blame for how badly the abject poor are faring to this very day. But let us laud those two twisted, racist snakes as having done something to bring the plight of millions of people infected with HIV-AIDS to the light regardless of whether they did or didn’t and they surely didn’t. But let us applaud their lack of attention given to that disease because they were ‘The Reagans’ doncha know! I just cannot make this shit up!

HIV/AIDS in Africa is one of the most important global public health issues of our time, and perhaps, in the history of mankind. In Africa, AIDS is one of the top causes of death. While only comprising slightly under 15% of the total population of the world, Africans account for nearly 70% of those who live with HIV and are dying of AIDS.

Southern Africa exhibits pandemic-level HIV infection rates, with extreme levels in the countries of Botswana, Lesotho, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, and Zambia. By contrast, some countries in North Africa have HIV prevalence rates lower than most cities in the USA.

Sub-Saharan Africa has the most serious HIV and AIDS epidemic in the world. In 2013, an estimated 24.7 million people were living with HIV, accounting for 71% of the global total. In the same year, there were an estimated 1.5 million new HIV infections and 1.1 million AIDS-related deaths.

Meanwhile, in America, AIDS in Black America has been deemed a public health crisis.

Of the more than 1 million people in the U.S. infected with HIV, nearly half are black men, women and children — even though blacks make up about 13 percent of the population. AIDS is the primary killer of African-Americans ages 19 to 44, and the mortality rate is 10 times higher for black Americans than for whites.

And although Black people make up only 13% of the U.S. population, they account for 44% of new HIV infections. The reasons for this increase has been attributed to poverty, lack of access to health care, higher rates of some sexually transmitted infections and lack of awareness of HIV status. What the statisticians fail to take into consideration is the fact that over a million Black men are incarcerated in America and when they go to prison and come out, they come out with AIDS and they in turn,  infect their girlfriends and wives.

Black men are deliberately incarcerated on bullshit drug charges and this is one of the reasons why. Furthermore, it is a known fact that many of them will be raped in prison and we all know that healthcare of any sort is sadly lacking in America’s prisons. The elite shits behind this genocide know that this is another sure way to kill off the Black populace. Send the men to prison, infect them with HIV and when they’re out, that fatal disease goes with them. They can talk about how Black people are unaware of their HIV status, but what I would like to know is are the prison officials making the prisoners aware of their HIV status before they are released? Also, what can Black people do to alleviate the factor of poverty? If poverty has been designated as a reason why Black people are more likely to become infected with HIV-AIDS, then what is being done to nip that shit in the bud? Not a goddamn thing because HIV-AIDS is doing exactly what it was designed to do. It is killing exactly who it was targeted to kill.

Black men, by the thousands are turning to homosexual behavior and that is not a behavior that was prevalent in our early history. We were not a race of homosexuals. But that is clearly changing. So, not only are Black men infecting other Black men because of their homosexual lifestyle, Black men who were incarcerated and still found themselves desiring a Black female to fulfill their sexual desire, is infecting the Black female upon release from prison. A win-win for the creators of this designer disease. A lose-lose for the children of the infected and for the communities of color in America.

I remember when I was working for an insurance company in the 80s and we came across a potential policyholder that had tested positive for HIV, we were all agog. We were like, “YUK!” In our small, isolated and insular town, we just were not up to speed with this disease and not to mention that it was just being talked about at that point. And soon, we were adding HIV questionnaires to insurance files and of course, those who had the disease were denied life insurance. Fast forward to today and people with HIV-AIDS are still being denied insurance and much more. It was only after Ryan White and his mother publicly fought a battle for him to attend school after having contracted the disease through tainted blood as he was a hemophiliac, did people actually start talking about HIV-AIDS.

The Reagans would not even talk to their friend Rock Hudson after he contracted AIDS and yet, warmonger Hillary Clinton had the audacity to go there about how the Reagans were the face of AIDS Advocacy? The lies just never stop coming and the liars just apologize as if that makes up for that shit. Well, I say, “There has been too many meaningless apologies after liars have been outed for their apologies to mean a damn. They don’t.

And to Black AmeriKKKa, I suggest you understand that we are not just the victims of police brutality, discrimination, income inequality, mass incarceration, the school-to-prison pipeline, homelessness and the list is endless, we are also the continued victims of medical and scientific experiments designed to eradicate us. You have only to recall the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment. Think the experiments have ceased? Think again! And remember, Hillary Clinton, she got your back. She will give your back a push, right into your grave as she lauds the racist ass Reagans for ignoring the ongoing medical and scientific experiments designed to eradicate us. Educate yourself on HIV-AIDS and all Sexually Transmitted Diseases and protect yourself by taking care of you! Because no one else gives a damn about us! They’d rather see us dead!

Stolen From Africa!

stolen from Africa

Stolen from Africa,
my screams pierce the air.
 I  am left with only memories.
 You destroyed my essence
and claimed your victory.

With no conscience to guide you,
you invaded my body.
I am your slave
with nothing of my own;
not even my name.

My children are torn
 from their mother’s arms.
Sold like cattle
and raped at will.
Oh christian’s god,
where is thy mercy?

In the gathering darkness;
shielded by the night,
I look up at the stars
for guidance home.

Oh christian’s god,
where is thy mercy?
I am whipped and chained;
beaten and broken!

My spirit is trapped
in this hellish nightmare
of porcelain creatures
who crave my soul.
Oh christian’s god,
forsake me not!

It is crystal clear to me that the christian’s god did indeed deny mercy to the slaves. I guess seeing as how the christians thought of the slaves as something less than human, they and their ‘god’ considered the slaves to be beyond redemption. And to think that we are to believe that christians sailed to the ‘new world’ to escape religious persecution only to turn around and do far worse to innocent people.

Continue to re-write history and spread your lies and I will continue to expose the vicious hypocrisy, cruelty, barbarity and vileness of the ‘christian’ slavers! 

And Black folks, you sit somewhere, moaning and wailing and singing to a ‘god’ that is depicted in the very image of slavers. They brainwashed you well. You sit and look at pictures posted in your church of their likeness and you have the nerve to think that this filth wants you anywhere near them in their god’s fake ass heavenly dwelling? They don’t even want to live beside you on this planet, so what makes you think that they want you in a mansion in the sky beside them? Hell! For the most part, you’re even buried in different cemeteries. And you’re going to live beside that shit in their fake ass ‘heaven’? Get real! I cannot believe that you have the nerve to wonder why a coroner is counting and digging bullets out of your ‘loved’ ones ass! And don’t forget to keep those ‘movements’ coming. Fifty years from now, you will have ‘moved’ to exactly where you are now.

Trophy World!

save cecil the lion

They look upon me as though I’m game
like ‘Cecil’ in his kingdom.
They shoot me just for sport;
these men so short on wisdom.

This hunter’s paradise
is hell on earth for me.
And the white man with his gun,
to kill would pay a fee.

Can you see the correlation
between Cecil and my ass?
To the white man, we are animals;
we are in the same class.

Hunting season never closes
for the Black man in this land.
Where is the petition to save me
from death at the white man’s hand?

How can you be so blind
to the trophies in the morgue
of all the Negroes killed
by killer cops gone rogue?

We must save the lion.
 So pass the petition, please.
Send it to my mother,
her heartbreak, it will ease.

You see, her son,  was killed
by hunters shooting game.
They shot him just for sport
and never knew his name.

So, pass the petition, please!
Let’s save a lion or two.
But when it comes to me,
a petition just won’t do.

US, EU: Save Africa’s lions!To US and EU authorities:

As concerned citizens deeply disturbed by the tragic killing of Cecil the lion, we urge you to act swiftly to stop the decline in lion populations across Africa. We call on you to ensure they are classified as an endangered species and ban the import of any hunting trophies that threaten the survival of these majestic animals.

And now, I have a petition!

US, EU: Save Negro lives in America!

As a concerned citizen deeply disturbed by the tragic killings of Negro people in America, I urge you to act swiftly to stop the decline in the Negro population across America. I call on you to ensure they are classified as an endangered species and ban the hunting and killing of Negroes by Caucasians as this threatens the survival of these majestic human beings! I would sincerely appreciate it if you would add the Negro to the endangered species list and act appropriately to put a halt to open hunting season on the Negro population.

signed, Shelby I. Courtland

Anybody else want to sign THIS particular petition? Step right up!

* crickets chirping*

I am getting real tired of this hypocritical shit! Caucasian man with money jets off to Africa, pays a hefty fee, kills ‘Cecil, the lion’ and all hell breaks loose.(Can anyone say, “White privilege?”) “Put that Caucasian motherfucker down and use his own gun to do it!” is basically the cry but when the Caucasian motherfucker hunts the Negro down in America, day in and day out, shoots him/her like they are hunted game, filling up morgues all across America with dead Negro bodies, where are the petitions calling for that shit to cease and desist? You don’t fucking think that the Negro in America is an endangered species? You don’t read the goddamn news? You don’t notice all of the YouTube videos depicting killing chokeholds, Black children getting gunned down in parks, Black women getting mysteriously murdered inside jail cells over a minor traffic infraction? You don’t see any of that, do you? But you do see innocent ‘Cecil, the lion’ don’t you? Because of course ‘Cecil, the lion’ was innocent and all of those hunted down and murdered Negro bodies were somehow deserving of their fate, weren’t they? Yeah! Protect the lions, fuck the Negro! You goddamn pretentious, hypocritical assholes make me want to puke and spit over your goddamn selective ass outrage! Fuck you and fuck your goddamn lame ass petitions!

A Slave Woman’s Lament

slave woman3

I’ve been down so many lonely roads
and I’ve scuffed so many shoes.
I’ve sat on old tree stumps
and I’ve quietly hummed the blues.

I’m just a tired, old woman now
with the wisdom learned from living.
And if you ask for my advice,
take from me what I’ll be giving.

There’s no secret to a long life;
 no magic formula to keep you going.
It’s not about how hard you work.
Just do your best to keep love growing.

I could tell you that it’s easy,
that it’s all a piece of cake.
But you need someone to love
and when he’s gone, it leaves an ache.

You feel it down and you feel it deep.
It hurts to even think.
And when you try and keep it in,
you just might turn to the devil’s drink.

My man, he done left my side
and I want to be with him.
And so I walk these lonely roads,
I wait for the light of day to grow dim.

My eyes have turned so yellow.
No more suffering will they see.
I’m now down to skin and bone.
Soon, no more worries will bother me.

There he is, I can see him.
He’s waving for me to come.
I’ve reached my final resting place.
We’re where the slavers stole us from.

Together, we walk hand in hand
towards the blazing sun.
We cross the burning plains of home.
Our new journey has begun.

You Blacks Just Make Me Sick!!!!

Not ONE knew NOT to turn their back on THAT white shit???!!! Seriously???!!! For the love of ......!!!!!

Not ONE knew NOT to turn their back on THAT white shit???!!! Seriously???!!! For the love of ……!!!!!

You are punks and snot-nosed kids
since you lie down and take their shit.
You’re not worthy of Father’s Day.
Black boys, you’re too unfit.

You say that you’re a man?
Prove it and I’ll believe.
A man would fight, not run.
He wouldn’t cry on his mama’s sleeve.

Three punks got shot in church
by a boy with shit for brains.
Did they sit and sing a hymn
as the fear ran through their veins?

They never did a thing
to protect their queens that died.
But they welcomed in the fold
one they know has always lied.

Why would you turn your back
on an enemy that you know?
What the hell is wrong with you
when you will pray with your mortal foe?

You Blacks just make me sick
with your stupid, foolish ways.
You allow the enemy in
and wonder why you dig more graves.

You live in a state of hate
and the street names say it all.
They raped and lynched our ass
and for their bullshit, you still fall.

But you say that you’re a man
born of kings from the Ivory Coast.
And yet, it takes just one white shit
to make every Black ass, toast!

I sincerely hope that you stupid Black motherfuckers are enjoying Father’s Day even though it does not pertain to you. How in the hell did three so-called Black men, do not a goddamn thing but sit in a prayer circle and not only let six women get shot, but allow themselves to get shot dead? Were they just sitting there waiting on an epiphany from god or were they waiting on god to intervene and knock the goddamn gun out of this little white shit’s hand? Black motherfuckers make me want to puke when all they ever talk about is how they ain’t going out like some punk ass bitch and that is exactly how they go out! You motherfuckers don’t look at the goddamn news? You don’t know that your ass is on every fucking body’s hit list from skinhead cops to your average garden variety bigot? When are you going to figure out that it has been open season on our ass since the first white foot stepped said foot in Africa and was ALLOWED to drag us the fuck over here? And why would that be? Because Blacks are such MANLY MEN? Hell if that’s so! I don’t give a goddamn if the enemy has to fuck up several million of us with their goddamn guns, if the enemy is in my country of birth, damn it if he is going to take it the fuck over AND steal my motherfucking people and enslave them!

And yet Black people are always somewhere attempting to point to how smart the people of Africa are. I fucking can’t see it! If the Africans were so goddamn smart, would the whites be over there owning every goddamn thing and would they have had the ability to distribute AIDS and every goddamn thing else over there? The white bastards have not taken over China. Russia told the Nazis to fuck off! But Africa and Australia have been taken over by the whites when there was a majority Black population in both and we like to think that we are SO goddamn smart? Yeah! Put that stupid shit to rest ’cause it so ain’t true! That much should be obvious even to a blind man that’s been planted! And you stupid motherfuckers are still walking around saying, “We still believe that prayer changes things!” For real? So, will prayer take us back to BEFORE those nine people got whacked by a ‘son of the confederacy’? I didn’t fucking think so!

“It has been tough, it’s been rough, some of us have been downright angry, but through it all God has sustained us and has encouraged us. Let us not grow weary in well-doing,” said the Rev. Norvel Goff, a presiding elder of the 7th District AME Church in South Carolina.

Yep! Spoken like a REAL man! “God is gonna sustain and encourage us to keep getting our ass kicked,” so says the presiding elder. “Sweet GEEZUS! I believe! Oh what faith, I have!”

Gag me with a goddamn spoon!

Happy Father’s Day Malcolm X, to you and ONLY you! To hell with you Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and all the rest of you pansy-pants snot-nosed crybabies because you never could get your act together. Thanks to you, we got so many Black MEN now, it is ‘unreal’ and that is a fact because it is just NOT reality! Now you stupid lily-livered Black motherfuckers, suck on that! You’re NOT men, you’re fucking crybabies! So cry into those goddamn buckets that I have placed in front of you for your sad ass tears!

Don’t Even Act Like You Don’t Know!

american history

It has come to my attention that some white folks are wondering why all of a sudden, they are seeing some shit that they have never seen before. Oh, really! I wonder why is that! Like fucking hell I do! You see, for hundreds of years, whites have been hell bent on making life as unpleasant and downright miserable and ugly for any and everybody that had a permanent tan of some sort. The whites have reduced the Indians, indigenous to America to less than a third of their initial population count that was up in the millions upon millions before the whites landed here and murdered the innocent Indians, confiscated their land and indoctrinated their children into the white’s culture AND then proceeded to inform anybody else that wanted to come here that they must first apply for citizenship when the whites NEVER applied to the Indians for citizenship, they just killed them. Shot them dead and then glorified the killing of these people with the likes of John Wayne and Glen Ford and Gregory Peck riding shotgun with a wagon train attempting to get those innocent ‘settlers’ into hostile Indian territory and oh how disturbing it was to view the wagon trains that were wiped out and see the pale ass scalps of the pale skins lying all about the goddamn ground. Oh, those horrid Indian savages! How could they? Yep! That’s whitey whites take on the history of this here shithole! Just ask fucking sick and twisted ass Hollywood!

Those savage Indians just could not be got along with and so the ‘christian’ whitey whites just had to do what was necessary to tame and subdue the original inhabitants of this land; subject them to torture, maim and kill them. Round the remaining Indians up and put them on reservations where the whites could keep an eye out for any Indians that may look cross-eyed due to their situation being what it was. Never mind, the savageness of the ‘christians’ who just wanted to live in peaceful bliss with those savage ass Indians who refused to share this land with the white peacekeepers. Every fucking body knows that whites have ALWAYS been ALL about the business of PEACE! Just ask those pesky savage Indians! Ask the poor Black slaves that got dragged over to this shithole once the whites figured out that the Indians were not going to build this shithole up for them! Ask the Black people over in Africa and the other Brown people over in other Middle Eastern countries that have had the whites on their asses since day fucking one! Ask them if they’ve ever known the whites to get their big ass boot up off their goddamn necks! Ask ’em how wonderful, benevolent and kind the white ‘christians’ have always been towards them.

And now, some white folks are wondering why they are just now seeing what the Black and Brown population of this here planet has known ever since they saw the first white foot set said foot on their motherfucking land. Some white folks are just SO fucking bewildered now that there are Youtube videos of eyewitness accounts of white motherfuckers fucking up the goddamn day of said Black and Brown bodies all across this godforsaken planet! Ain’t that just a bitch? They are fucking wondering what’s about to happen to their ass! What’s about to happen to your goddamn ignorant, clueless ass is what has been happening to every Black and Brown body that the whites have been fucking up for hundreds of goddamn years! That is what is fucking happening! And about goddamn time, I say! So read the damn writing on the wall and don’t even bother to prep for that shit ’cause you ain’t gonna have time for that shit! No indeed, you are not! Your turn has come! We’ve been dealing with this shit for, AGAIN, hundreds of goddamn years and you white motherfuckers that’s just waking up are all a’gog over what you are just now privileged to witness! How lucky you goddamn Rip Van Wrinkles have been!

Sit up and recognize that your nap is being disturbed and how! Now fucking suck on that because you don’t like having your bullshit nap disturbed over some Black bodies that’s getting torn to bits every goddamn day but if you continue to see military vehicles arrive in a suburb near you, why “what’s the goddamn problem, officer?! This here ain’t the fucking hood! We is white bread christian America, doncha know!!!” I hope their fucking boot that’s been planted squarely on our necks for centuries gets shoved up your white asses so goddamn far that the toe comes outta your fucking mouth! Now, how’s that for a fucking ‘christian’ attitude! Yeah! I know! I ain’t even close to being as rotten, vile, nasty, barbaric and shitty as the peace loving ‘christians’ are but I promise to continue to work on it and that’s for goddamn certain! And AGAIN! Suck on that!
