America, The Shithole!

There is no greater shithole on the face of this planet than America!

We’ve got a shit for brains racist president that makes no bones about the fact that he is racist as hell while the White House is frantically running around trying to assure everyone that Trump never referred to Haiti and African countries as, ‘shitholes’.

President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House, a Democratic aide briefed on Thursday’s meeting told NBC News.

According to the aide, when the group came to discussing immigration from Africa, Trump asked why America would want immigrants from “all these shithole countries” and that the U.S. should have more people coming in from places like Norway.

Well, why the hell didn’t this shithole originally drag people over to this shithole from Norway to slave away on plantations? Why the fuck are Norwegians just now becoming so popular with this flaming racist president who is just as damn racist as the first presidents of this stinking ass shithole?

People from African countries would not already be here if not for the fact that this shithole had people in it who looked just like Norwegians but who were so damn lazy, they didn’t even want to pick their own cotton, tobacco, vegetables or do their own goddamn cooking and cleaning. This shithole could have long since been filled with Norwegians and only Norwegians if it weren’t so fucking racist since only Africans were considered inferior enough to do backbreaking and menial tasks as slaves.

But now, this fucking shithole wants Norwegians? And people from African countries should be glad to remain in their huts in Africa? You know what? My Black ass would have been mightily glad to have been able to remain with my ancestors in their goddamn huts, but you white motherfuckers weren’t about to have that. Oh hell no! You needed slaves and it is quite apparent that your first consideration for that dubious distinction was not the Norwegians, it was those who were quite happy to remain in their motherfucking huts, that is until today, since Donald Trump tells us so.

Here in this shithole to end and all shitholes is a goddamn pile of shit with a flaming racist tongue protruding and spitting out shit, left and right about what other countries are shitholes? Talk about shitty balls. That motherfucker’s got the balls of bulls to even vomit that putrid shit up!

But let me expound further on what makes this shithole, a shithole!

This WHITE MALE MASS MURDERER who killed dozens and wounded hundreds is first up!

Don’t forget about what happened in Las Vegas! What a shithole!

Sandra Bland, murdered in a Texas jail and the shits that run this shithole called it, “SUICIDE!” Fuck that!

Where was the justice for Sandra Bland in this racist shithole?

‘How A Police Officer Shot A Sleeping 7-Year-Old To Death’
Aiyana Mo’nay Stanley-Jones was sleeping in her home on the east side of Detroit on the night of May 16, 2010, when officers barged into the house. Officer Joseph Weekley fired his gun and shot to death a sleeping child, seven year-old Aiyana Mo’nay Stanley-Jones.
So, what did this child do to deserve getting shot dead? She wasn’t selling drugs. She didn’t have a rap sheet. She was asleep and murdered and what happened to her killer? Nothing! Because he is white and this innocent seven year old child was Black. It wasn’t her fault that she was living in America, The Mother of ALL Shitholes! Where is the justice for her?

Muhammad-Ali was almost jailed and was stripped of his right to get into a boxing ring in the prime of his life because he recognized this worthless racist shithole for what it is, a shithole!

Philando Castile, murdered in front of his girlfriend and her daughter for cooperating with ‘law enforcement’ trying to produce his identification and no one was held responsible for murdering that man in this racist shithole!

Alton Sterling, another Black man murdered for no reason because just being Black is no reason to be lying in a morgue in this racist shithole, but that’s what he got!

These nine Black people were holding prayer service in their church in this shithole when a racist gunned them down. But I guess it was their fault since they weren’t of Norwegian descent.

Tamir Rice, aged 12, dead! Murdered by a racist cop because he was playing with a toy gun in a park in this racist shithole!

Anna Brown, dead, aged 29 because she went to a hospital because she was sick. The hospital called the police and she died on a jail cell floor from blood clots in her legs that traveled to her lungs. She, apparently, was not Norwegian and so therefore, was not deserving of care in this flaming shithole!

Barbara Dawson, dead, same reason as Anna Brown in the above picture is dead. She fell ill, went to a hospital and was promptly arrested. She died after having been handcuffed, dragged out of the hospital and collapsed. Too bad she wasn’t Norwegian in this shithole!

Remember Emmett Till? His mother leans, inconsolable, over the coffin of her 14-year old son who was brutalized and lynched by feral racists in this shithole for doing not a damn thing. But then, he wasn’t Norwegian, so I guess that explains this, doesn’t it???!!!

Michael Brown and Eric Garner, both dead. And Eric Garner’s death was filmed and he was killed by a cop using an illegal chokehold and who was held accountable for his death in this racist shithole? And so many lies were told about Michael Brown, it isn’t even funny, but I do know that he was shot dead and his body was allowed lie there in the hot sun, uncovered, for hours as though he was a dog, shot dead. For the love of !!!! Again, too bad he was not of Norwegian descent because maybe, he’d still be alive.

Have you seen enough proof of what a shithole America is, a racist shithole, at that? Or did you really think that a shithole has to do more so with how a place looks than what it really is. Because all of the above happenings makes America, the shithole to end all shitholes. And how dare that pompous, racist, megalomaniac sit on his shitty ass and declare that Haiti and all African countries as being “shitholes” when America has always and will always reign as the “Supreme Shithole To End All Shitholes!”

But I’ll leave you with something else that is reminiscent of a shithole!

 

Look at the maps and take note of how close to ground zero you are in this toxic shithole of glyphosates.

 

And yet, that racist fuck, Trump thinks that I wanted my ancestors to be dragged from what he calls, “shitholes?” Is that fuck for real? Seriously? I am not some ‘African’ trying to immigrate here. And why they would want to is a complete and utter mystery to me! Maybe the Norwegians, back in the day, would have come, willingly, but my people were dragged to this SHITHOLE!

 

Give A Badge To A Skinhead, Part 2!

they want us dead and they are murdering us

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When You Get Goddamn Tired…..!

break the chains

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

bahamas 1

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Welcome to AmeriKKKa!

Shots Ring Out Every Single Night!

Michah Johnson

Shots ring out every single night.
People stand on the corner and scream and shout.
Torn protest signs litter the streets.
And no one seems to know what it’s all about.

A young man in Baton Rouge was shot and killed.
Another young man in St. Anthony, the same.
In Ferguson, MO, blood flows down the street.
And at the heart of it all is a KKKop’s killing game.

In a Wal-Mart store, a man held a toy gun,
he is dead too and the killing didn’t stop.
A young boy played in a Cleveland park
and the next sound he heard was a gun going, “POP!”

A young woman went to Texas to start a new job,
she made a wrong turn with her signal light.
And now she is dead, found hanged in a cell
all because her color was Black and not white.

I tell myself that any killing is wrong,
but when I heard about the shooting in a Texas town,
I never even flinched nor did I say one word.
I simply poured a flute of champagne and I chugged it down!

Call me insensitive or call me what you want,
but I will not lend myself to hypocrisy
because in my heart of hearts, I don’t care for KKKops,
when those they kill by the thousands, look like me!

The Dallas gunman claimed white police officers were conducting “genocide” against black people before he launched his attack, a friend told the Telegraph.

A week before Micah Johnson, 25, targeted police in Dallas the normally “chill” military veteran became upset, the friend said.

Israel Cooper, 19, said: “He was upset. He said white cops are just slaying black people, basically genocide. He said, “this is getting out of hand’.”

“Getting out of hand,” is right! And for people who say that this is the beginning of  a race war, tell me when have white people not been at war against America’s most unwilling ‘citizens’; descendants of slaves? You forget yourself and since you do, might I remind you why Black people are here? You mean, you don’t know? We are here thanks to your ancestors and here you are, taking up where your ancestors left off and you expect us to love you? Get real!

You can call this a ‘race war’ if you like and you can denounce us from here to hell, but the reality is, you put this shit in motion and now you want us to wring our hands and gnash our teeth because some racist KKKops got wacked by a man who was sick and tired of reading endless reports of racists gunning down innocent Black people? You can wag your finger over this until it falls off, I don’t give a good goddamn because tonight, I am celebrating AGAIN! That’s right! The only “POPPING” I am going to hear is the popping of another champagne cork!

“Cheers!”

And in the words of Tupac, “I was given this world, I didn’t make it.” And we ALL know who made this world the way it is now. So, you own up to what you set in motion. You goddamn right, I’m gonna celebrate! Eight 0 clock sharp and that’s central daylight savings time, “POP” goes the goddamn cork, motherfuckers!

And as for the KKKops out there! You sons-of-bitches ain’t even good enough to suck on the cork AFTER I trash it, you worthless racist bastards! Grieve with you? Nothing fucking doing!

Now Repeat After Me! “Black Lives Matter!” Once Again, “Black Lives Matter!” Now, Get Real!

black lives matter

Black lives matter!
Keep telling yourself that lie
and that it’s just a matter of time
 before you get your piece of the pie.

Black lives matter!
 Blacks are why the morgues are full.
 and why the jails are overcrowded.
That Black lives matter shit is bull!

Black lives matter!
It’s why you’re holding up a sign
because Freddie Gray is dead.
They broke that Black man’s spine.

Black lives matter!
This is what you must make known.
You want them to understand
that you can’t help your Black skin tone.

Black lives matter!
But how can you be so sure?
 It would seem that Black must be a disease.
And that death is the only cure.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

Over 2.3 million men in America are in prison — about half for drug crimes. Seventy percent of all men imprisoned are black or Hispanic. Thirty years ago, before the “War on Drugs” was implemented, there were only 300,000 people in the American prison system.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

Homelessness has become an especially serious problem in the African-American community, with Blacks making up half of the nation’s homeless community, according to a report by the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, African-Americans disproportionately represent 47 percent of homeless people, although they make up only 12 percent of the general population.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

You really can get pulled over for driving while black, federal statistics show

A black driver is about 31 percent more likely to be pulled over than a white driver, or about 23 percent more likely than a Hispanic driver. “Driving while black” is, indeed, a measurable phenomenon.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

The ACLU is committed to challenging the “school-to-prison pipeline,” a disturbing national trend wherein children are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Many of these children have learning disabilities or histories of poverty, abuse, or neglect, and would benefit from additional educational and counseling services. Instead, they are isolated, punished, and pushed out.

“Zero-tolerance” policies criminalize minor infractions of school rules, while cops in schools lead to students being criminalized for behavior that should be handled inside the school. Students of color are especially vulnerable to push-out trends and the discriminatory application of discipline.

So, as you can clearly see, Black lives matter! BLACK LIVES MATTER, keep up the good work, #Blacklivesmatter! Because whatever you’re doing, it is crystal clear that it IS working! Hell! Where do I sign up????!!!!!

Now, here is another reason to join #BLACKLIVESMATTER!

Minn. cop fatally shoots black man during traffic stop, aftermath broadcast on Facebook

A Minnesota traffic stop turned deadly Wednesday evening when a police officer opened fire on a black driver and killed him — less than 48 hours after another fatal police shooting in Louisiana.

Philando Castile, 32, died at a Minneapolis hospital.

Word is that he died because of a broken taillight, but the reality is he died because BLACKLIVESMATTER at the morgue! Just ask the coroner in every shitty ass city in this shithole!

Philando Castile is dead, not because his vehicle’s taillight was out, Philando Castile is dead because he was “driving while Black” and that is against the law as is every goddamn thing a Black person does in bloody ass racist AmeriKKKa!

Once AGAIN!, for the motherfuckers that are slow or otherwise, dumb as all hell, Black folks would not be in AmeriKKKa if your ancestors hadn’t been some lazy ass motherfuckers who had NO goddamn work ethic whatsoever who produced the very same in you because if you were any different from your slave owning ancestors, would we continue to see this shit play out? Yeah! Look in the mirror and answer that question! I dare you!

And just how many of us Black folks were out looking at fireworks on the 4th of July? Raise your hands. My hand is raised because that is exactly what the fuck I was doing. Was I standing in the middle of the street with my lame ass, dusty ass, fifty year old protest sign just getting arrested and some mo shit for blocking traffic every single damn time bail is posted? Fuck no! I was too busy enjoying the fireworks and when I’m not enjoying the fireworks, I’m out pumping gas into my car and aiding and abetting oil wars in the Middle East. I am sitting up in a movie theater watching “Independence Day Part 62” and some more shit! I am out there doing my part to make sure that I am part of the problem, not part of the solution.

I refuse to get up off my ass and fuck shit up! I refuse to even attempt to make a difference in the lives of those who look like me that’s getting planted, daily! I refuse to do anything but pen some goddamn kindergarten poetry and then I get up and out the door to pursue my pleasure, I go.  I am out shopping for clothes for road trips and shit! I am cussing and carrying on when someone parks their vehicle too close to mine but do I cuss and carry on out in the middle of the street over KKKop killings of those who look like me? Fuck no! I am apathetic and complacent over THAT shit! What’s that got to do with me? I ain’t been pulled over. Not yet! But I sure as hell expect someone to moan and wring their hands and gnash their teeth when I get pulled over and shot for having a broken taillight, but quite actually, I would have gotten pulled over for “driving while Black!”

Goddamn it! Ain’t we just having fun? Poor, poor Alton Sterling, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. And poor, poor Philando Castile, same goes for him; wrong place, wrong time. And Freddie Gray? Same thing! Sandra Bland? Yep! Tamir Rice? Indeed! We had ALL better hope that we ain’t never at the wrong place at the wrong time, ’cause the party WILL be over! No fireworks, no movies, no shopping, no  champagne brunches; none of that shit! Yeah! Life is good, ’til it ain’t! 

We Is Dead Meat To Them!

special on dark meat1

Alton Sterling just bit the dust,
down in ole Baton Rouge.
He weren’t looking for no whores
of the like in “Moulin Rouge.”

I hear he was selling CDs,
trying to become a businessman.
But just like Eric Garner,
he needed another plan.

And now, another gentle giant
was felled by the slave patrol.
You have got to understand
that the white man is in control.

So, pick up your protest sign,
and get to marching down the street.
I know your shoes are worn out
as is your tired and aching feet.

But this is how you effect change,
like they did in Dr. King’s day?
Just ask him how that worked.
Damn! He can’t talk no way!

Dr. King was all peaceful like
as he took to the streets of hell.
He said, “I gots me a dream
and they shot him dead as well.

Oh, but things is different now.
They let you riot and go berserk
but then they say, “Alright, you’re done!”
And around your neck, that chain, they jerk!

We’re all Massa’s boys and girls.
We sing and we dance for him.
But if we got no talent at all,
then we is dead meat to them.

Well, I for one, am not getting out my dusty ass, lame ass protest sign. Sorry Alton Sterling, but since it did not work for Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley-Jones, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, Sandra Bland, John Crawford, Ezell, Ford, Akai Gurley, Rumain Brisbon, Jerame Reid, Artago Damon Howard, Jeremy Lett, Thomas Allen, Charly Leondeu Keunang, Naeschylus Vinzaint, Tony Robinson, Anthony Hill, Bobby Gross, Frank Shepherd, William Chapman, David Felix, Brendon Glenn, Kris Jackson, Spencer McCain, Albert Joseph Davis, Samuel DuBose, Christian Taylor and on and on it goes, it did not work for you or for those who will be added to this list.

If I tweet about it, that should do the trick. If I post my outrage about what happened on Facebook, that will make a difference. But I chose to only write a poem about what happened to you and so I am just as much to blame for what is going down as the people I call out. I am a ‘do nothing’ hypocrite just like we all are. We sit back and we watch this go down every single day and we do nothing because marching does nothing, lighting up Twitter and Facebook and penning poems, does nothing. I am aiding and abetting in what has been happening to Black people all across this murderous hellhole and so no, I do not sit on my sanctimonious ass and call everyone else out without including my ‘do nothing’ ass in with the lot of you!

And hoping that Alton Sterling rests in peace is like suggesting that Alton Sterling has gone to a ‘better place’ Get real! The man is as dead as a doorknob and he damn sure got no peace here and he is expected to get some restful slumber while awaiting the rapture? AGAIN!!! Get real!!!!

But wait for it! The “GASP!” Justice Department has been called in. Yep! That’s gonna help! I gagged on that lie! Oh yes I did! The ‘officers’ are on ‘paid leave’ pending, once again, not a goddamn thing and so, nothing to see here folks. Move it along! Just ask the KKKops that murdered Freddie Gray and ALL the others!! And as always, this is just another fucking day in paradise!
