I Did Not Expect THIS on Orange is the New Black! Jesus Take the Wheel — Loving the Natural You

Let the many emotions that raid my body come trembling out during this season

They Did a Pretty Good Job on the Issues of Immigration and ICE Detention Centers

I was already aware of what was happening in those centers, but when they have these excellent actresses/actors playing these roles, I couldn’t help but to shed some tears. Those mothers that were snatched from their babies and forced to represent themselves in court because they don’t know their rights. To the children that are representing themselves in court with absolutely NO way to know what is truly going on, I wanted to reach out and do something. But what? The only thing this caused, was more hatred for ICE.

They put one of our fave characters on a plane for deportation to a country she knew nothing about.

F- ICE, you are on indigenous land (My friend is fundraising a shirt with this slogan on it, check out the link below)

via I Did Not Expect THIS on Orange is the New Black! Jesus Take the Wheel — Loving the Natural You

I am too through. The writer of this blog is crying over a Netflix show that has included in one of its episodes, some shit about what has been going down at the southern border, what with ICE picking up illegals to deport them. The show is called “Orange Is The New Black.” Now, I have never watched this show because if I want to learn all about how prisoners are mistreated, then I can take myself to a prison and visit with an inmate and get a firsthand account of their mistreatment at the hands of homosexual prison guards.

Those mothers that were snatched from their babies

Uh…you don’t think that slave women had their babies snatched from them? Wring your hands, moan, wail and gnash your teeth over that! What Latino has gotten bent out of shape over what is going down as it relates to what has happened to us and is still happening to us since there are millions of Black children who were snatched from their mothers when their mothers were sent to prison on some damn bullshit weed charges! Cry for them because they are ALL up in REAL prisons. They are not actors on Netflix! Seriously??!!! Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit!

Why this Black woman is wringing her hands and gnashing her teeth over some Guatemalans, Columbians and Hondurans who came here illegally, I don’t know because she should be concentrating on the fact that there are millions of people locked inside prison cages who look just like her. Those illegals don’t give a shit for American descendants of slaves, we don’t mean a damn thing to them. And furthermore, the illegals are not getting fucked up by Black people. Whitey pasty ass is fucking those people up, same as they are fucking us up and so their beef is with the whites, not us! I got no tears and hand wringing for anyone else since it is all I can do to try and hold back the tears when I see Black folks getting fucked up daily.

I cannot believe that she absolutely missed the irony in what she wrote.

“They put one of our fave characters on a plane for deportation to a country she knew nothing about.”

This is exactly why I despair OF us Black folks. How on earth can she sit somewhere and not even realize that her Black ass is over here via almost the same situation. The only difference in her ancestors getting over here is because they were dragged ashore from slave ships and not by airplanes. Because make no mistake, if planes were flying in the 1600s, our ancestors would have been on them, but yet this Black woman wants to cry and wail over some immigrants who were picked up by ICE(Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents and sent back from whence they came. I say, “Good riddance and don’t bring your ass back. ” The problem is, they will come back.

This blogger’s ancestors knew nothing about this shithole when they were dragged over here and who gave a shit about what happened to them and also what is happening to their descendants and she happens to be one? Those illegals come here with the full expectation that they can get fucked up by whitey parasite ass at any time and yet they still CHOOSE to come here. That shit’s on them. Our ancestors, including hers, did NOT CHOOSE to come here. Don’t get it twisted. And descendants of slaves fare far worse than ANY so-called illegals. They can easily go back across the border if the shit gets too much for them to handle. We don’t have that option. I don’t give a damn about how hard a time they are having in their country of origin; that’s their problem. We got our own problems to deal with. You mean racism, bigotry, mass incarceration, mass homelessness, income inequality, disparities in health care, education and housing, drug addiction and gentrification are not serious issues that American descendants of slaves are facing? Of course not to you because the only thing that matters to you is that some actors are pretend getting fucked up on Netflix.

How the hell have we got time to sit up and watch a show on Netflix that’s copycatting some southern border shenanigans and moan and wail over it is a complete and utter mystery to me. But Black folks are ever the ones to be entertained and for crying and moaning over the plight of some motherfuckers who wouldn’t spit on us to put a fire out on our ass. Those illegals hate Black people and so no, I wouldn’t buy not one goddamn t-shirt condemning ICE. Why don’t you pimp a t-shirt condemning police brutality against your own damn kind? Why don’t you pimp a t-shirt calling attention to the mass incarceration of those who look just like you? Why don’t you pimp a t-shirt about the millions of Black children who were snatched from their parents? That shit’s for real and not just on some goddamn, stupid ass Netflix show!

 

Black people are their own worst enemy and they just continue to reinforce that shit, each and every single day. Like I’m about to shed some tears over some motherfuckers that CHOSE to come here and get fucked up by whitey pasty ass. HA! That’ll be the fucking day! Print a t-shirt about that!

 

Let’s Talk About It: Abuse In The African American Community — The Divorced Millennial

“And since we all came from a woman, got our name from a woman and our game from a woman- I wonder why we take from our women, why we rape our women, do we hate our women? I think it’s time to kill for our women, time to heal our women, be real to […]

I was able to experience this phenomenon first-hand when I experienced abuse within my relationship. I remember very vividly the way that my mother-in-law made me feel after one particular extra-heated argument that my ex-husband and I had that got out of control. She treated me like I didn’t even exist when she came into my home. I don’t have a child, so I couldn’t tell you what my exact reaction would be if I were in her shoes. But as a woman, I know for a fact that I wouldn’t be condoning or enabling any abusive behavior from any family member of mine, let alone my son. To this day, she never once asked me was I ok or tried to check on how I was doing. Instead, she saw me as the cause of the problem. I wonder if maybe she was able to witness the countless conversations that I had with my mom while I locked myself in a bathroom or my car telling her that I was scared to come out, that maybe she might have been more sympathetic. Maybe if she would have seen me in an actual chokehold, she would realize that her son was not the only party capable of being hurt, and that I was someone’s child as well.

via Let’s Talk About It: Abuse In The African American Community — The Divorced Millennial

I can relate to this woman’s experience on every level. The only difference is that her soon to be ex mother-in-law condoned the abusive behavior of her son towards his wife while my own mother condoned my husband’s abusive behavior towards her own daughter; me. To this very day, my mother still calls my ex-husband, “her son-in-law.” Don’t that beat all? And yet people have the nerve to castigate me for the letter I publicly wrote to my mother. If I thought it would shame her ass at all, I’d write another one. But you can read my “Happy Birthday Wish To My Mother” letter right here!

When my ex-husband beat me and covered me in bruises and I told my parents about it, the only thing they did was encourage me to “work it out with him” because, just as this woman states in her blog, this vicious cycle just continues since my father beat my mother to within an inch of her life, many, many, many times. And so I don’t know why I expected any help from THAT direction especially with the type of upbringing I had.

My situation devolved to the point whereas I had already moved out of the home I shared with my ex-husband and was living on my own, however, that became untenable because my ex-husband would get his friends to watch me coming and going and eventually, he started banging on my door, demanding entrance. Out of abject fear, I had to flee the only town I’d ever known and head to parts unknown with just $700.00 to my name.

So yes indeed, there is much abuse in the African Amerikkkan descendants of slaves community and it should be exposed because only by doing so, will we be able to address the fact that this type of abuse is a serious problem and it needs to stop.

And sadly, as the author of this blog states, this is ALL baggage that is from our history of enslavement in this shithole. How on earth can we be mentally healthy people when we are a product of slavery and we experience racism, bigotry, hatred, prejudice; the whole nine yards to this very day simply because whites dragged our ancestors to this shithole as slaves and still treat the descendants of those slaves worse than shit?! Many of us, apparently, experience self-hatred and project that outward and we are hurting those whom we should be protecting with our lives.

It is still Black women who are on the front lines when racist police gun down our brothers, uncles, fathers, nephews, husbands and sons. We are the ones who do the marching through the streets, the burying, the crying, the demands for justice. We suffer untold atrocities everyday because of our love for our men and yet our men turn right around and beat us senseless? What kind of shit is that? We are not your enemy. Your enemy is the same as ours. If you treat your enemy like some of you treat us, maybe we’d be getting somewhere. You better act like you know! So yes, sista is right on point with this post because I can most definitely relate and I am sure many of you can. I only wish I could not.

Thanks To ‘Whites’ Bringing Us Climate Change, Black Folks, It Is Time To Get Back To A Sense Of Community

The headlines out today do not bode well for mass food production thanks to climate change or global warming or whatever you want to call it, which was brought to us via the whites, who also came up with the not so bright idea of mass food production seeing as how food recalls are in the news daily. The headlines are about farmers who are impotent as a direct result of climate change since the recent historic flooding events in the Midwest has ground planting to a halt, as well as the delivery of products via the Mississippi River.

Midwest farmers in limbo as flooding halts shipping along Mississippi River

The Mississippi River is the key shipping artery for agriculture, inputs to manufacturing, chemicals, energy products, construction and building materials that are used domestically and for export to the world market through the Gulf of Mexico.

But there’s not much water traffic this spring season due to historic flooding from snow melt and rain in America’s heartland. Record-breaking rainfall has caused flooding along the Mississippi River and as a result, the river is basically closed for business.

So thanks to Mother Nature fucking white folks shit up since they are no damn good anyway, food prices are soaring and that is a good thing since this should drive many folks to go back to planting community gardens and fending for themselves. We were much healthier when we grew our own food because what happened when food became mass produced? GMO shit! Roundup, which contains a known carcinogen, is sprayed every damn where to stop a goddamn weed from growing when in my childhood, we merely bent our backs over the fields of vegetables and pulled the weeds up by the root, weekly and we didn’t suffer for it. We received much needed Vitamin D from the sun while getting great exercise and healthy foods. Mass food production destroyed all of that. And now look at us; morbidly obese couch potatoes who stare down at a damn phone while munching down on garbage passing for food that was delivered by Uber. Seriously???!!!

But since we don’t have the sense god gave a goat, Mother Nature to the rescue AGAIN!!! I hope Mother Nature continues to, essentially, ground capitalism to a halt and MAKE people get up off their obese ass and plant their own vegetables. Look up from those goddamn phones and realize what is truly important and newsflash! What’s NOT important is all your fucking Apps on that goddamn smartphone that’s taken the place of your damn brain. And so since farmers are “in limbo,” they are going to stay in limbo because climate change ain’t going nowhere. So that means, either get up off your big ass and plant your own vegetables or head to the store with your $25 in food stamps since the Trump Administration has cut the hell out of food stamp benefits and then dig deep inside your pockets or purses and get to shoveling money across the counter to pay for the massive increase in prices for garbage that shouldn’t even be served to a cockroach, Trump supporters since many of you are still devoted to that lump of orange clay that’s not giving a damn about your plight.

You can sit somewhere on your stupid ass and pretend that this is all just going to right itself and things will be back to normal in no time flat all you want, but the writing is on the wall for all to see; climate change is here to stay and things are only going to get worse from here. Don’t believe it? Here is some more bad news for those of you who are not into farming for yourselves or doing much of anything else for yourselves, for that matter.

The Hurricane Season Prediction for 2019 Is Similar to Last Year. That’s Bad News

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting a “near-normal” hurricane season in 2019, with between two and four major hurricanes expected. However, only two major hurricanes hit in 2018, but both made direct strikes on the United States, causing billions of dollars in damage and claiming dozens of lives.

Gerry Bell, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center lead hurricane forecaster, emphasized Thursday that communities should take the hurricane season seriously because, as 2018 showed, even an average number of storms can cause significant damage.

So don’t even think about ignoring the truth in that climate change is here to stay since all you need do is go to Panama City Beach, Florida or Mexico Beach, Florida which was reduced to rubble to see for yourself. And those who still ‘live’ in Panama City Beach are to this very day, in tents waiting on funds from the Trump Administration. The mayor of Panama City Beach, Florida has stated that he has been to Washington three times to beg for more funding to clean up the debris left behind by last year’s hurricanes and he says that all he got for his efforts was the sound of crickets chirping. Meanwhile, people are sitting all up in tents provided to them by a more fortunate resident of Panama Beach, Florida and the pictures included in this blog are mostly from her ‘tent city’. The people who ‘camp’ there all say that they would not have any place to go if this woman had not opened her backyard up to them and equipped it with shower facilities, electricity and the other necessities of life. This is exactly what I mean, Black folks, in that we need to get back to community involvement which means doing exactly what this white is doing for other whites. In the pictures, you will notice that not one Black person is depicted. Even disasters cannot bridge the divide between Black people and whites.

The vast majority of homes that are occupied by Black people are owned by whites and those include apartment buildings and so what do we really have to lose when it comes to seeing whites’ shit get fucked up? That’s their shit and nine times out of ten, the house or apartment is a slum and so while we are trying to get our act together and go back to the basics, the same applies with housing other Black people in your area; helping them find suitable housing. Collaboration is the key. Keeping the lines of communication open is the key. Realizing that we are all we have is the key. What is happening is real. What is happening is fucked up but it had to happen because there was no other way to turn the tide. This is Mother Nature’s way of saying to the whites, “You ain’t ALL that! I CAN and WILL fuck YOU and YOUR shit up! And don’t even think I’m playing with your debased ass!” Mother Nature is insisting on grinding the whites’ capitalism shit to a halt! She is fed up with those parasites fucking up her planet and she is doing something about it. Expect more and worse shit to come. And so the only thing I can do is attempt to get you to prepare for what is to come.

Hurricane season is here now. So enjoy the pictures by Vice News that showcase the fact that those who were impacted by last years hurricanes are still adversely impacted today despite having screeched and wailed to their ‘white god’ Donald Trump that they need some funds. They are being referred to as “The Forgotten People” and there will be many more ‘forgotten people’ joining them. So don’t say that you weren’t warned because that would be a lie!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With historic flooding in the Midwest and hurricane season upon us, it’s about to get even uglier than this and so just like those who are Trump’s rabid base in the Florida Panhandle are being ignored by their ‘white god’, Donald Trump, so are the farmers in the Midwest and Trump’s other supporters who applaud his racist rhetoric, bigotry, misogyny and stupidity. You reap what you sow and so getta reaping!

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???!!!!

We Can’t Make America Great Again — From Queen to Queens

Today has been difficult for me. Last night as I watched the midterm election results pour in, the hope and joy I felt of the possible restoration of America as I once knew it was quickly replaced by a deep sadness. I, like many people last night, expected a “blue wave” or the overwhelming election […]

via We Can’t Make America Great Again — From Queen to Queens

 

Every single word is right on point! I could not have said it better if I tried. Even though this stolen nation was never great, this young lady brings home her point.

And I will admit, I didn’t even bother voting. I had too much to do. I have not been blogging lately because I have been out in the trenches taking poor sick people to appointments, to grocery shop, to pick up their children from daycare and the list is endless because so many are living in ‘food deserts’ and public transportation is a joke that isn’t at all funny.

While those of you who were standing in line voting, hoping that whites would get their collective act together and disassociate themselves from who and what they are, there were those of us out there doing what we can with what we have because we know ‘whites’. We don’t want to, but we do. Those of us who are descendants of slaves have been on the receiving end of racism, bigotry, prejudice, hatred and violence since our ancestors were dragged here and only through the advent of technology has the world been made aware of our plight in Amerikkka, not that it’s done us any obvious good, nor will it. We have to help one another. No politician on the local, state or national level is going to do a damn thing about a damn thing besides line their pockets by continuing to sell us out since they are owned by corporations and we ALL know how corporations are treating their ‘workers’.

I have heard that women made inroads in the political field  and the LGBTQ community did likewise. Well now, ain’t that just something. Every other ‘group’ will always make headway but those of us who are descended from slaves, we best sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because a white supremacist’s bullet has our name all over it and the murder of us by them is sanctioned by a government that will never truly be a representative government to us because if we have to be declared ‘citizens’ by amendments to the Constitution, then what does that tell you? I’ll give you a hint. Several prominent politicians and wannabe politicians have made statements in essence saying that “slavery was the best era in Amerikkkan history.” The sad fact of the matter is, what has changed? With three million Black men and women locked up in cages, slavery never went anywhere. It just morphed into the Prison Industrial Complex. Every person who is a descendant of slaves is on lockdown every goddamn day and don’t we ALL fucking know this. We’d better fucking make sure every goddamn light on our vehicles is in functioning order because if not, we are going to be pulled over and nine times out of ten, shot for “failing to comply with orders barked at us by a member of the Klan.”

Who the hell is going to do a damn thing about the school-to-prison pipeline? No member of congress is. We have got to go into our schools and mentor our children. Take those smartphones away from them and put a book into their hands. Who is going to open the prison doors and free our brothers and sisters? No member of congress is. We have got to become lawyers and defend our own in a system set up to send us straight to prison because many of us are too poor to afford a good attorney and so we end up with a public defender. Who in unholy hell thinks that a white parasite paid by the ‘state’ is going to do a damn thing to help a descendant of slaves stay out of jail over some bullshit ass charges? Are we even helping our elderly neighbor get to a doctor’s appointment or asking her if she needs to be taken to the grocery store or to run an errand? There is plenty that we can do. It does not have to be anything big. We don’t need a big, huge church building and a 501c exemption. Churches aren’t the answer. Religion isn’t the answer because if it was, would the shit that’s going down today, be going down if religion is the answer? Hell fucking no! The money that the Reverend, Bishop, Pastor, Rabbi and the like take from the blind, the stupid and the gullible all goes where? You see ANY evidence of church funds helping out the community? Oh, they’ll dole out some expired canned goods, but that’s about it. Why is homelessness so problematic when we have palaces of worship all across this godforsaken country doing fuck all about it? I wish to hell I thought I’d step foot inside one of those palaces of hypocrisy and sit up and listen to dog shit from a pedophile or another hypocrite who is preaching at me about sin and who is, after church service, fooling around on his wife with one or two of the ushers.

Black folks, despair is for those who have no hope. As long as there is someone in need in the ‘Black community’, there is someone who could come to their assistance. Why can’t that ‘someone’ be you? To sit somewhere and moan about the outcome of an election is foolish. You should have known that whatever the outcome, the same problems that existed before the election would continue to exist. Politicians don’t care about us. And you can see that whites are so damn stupid and filled with hatred that even after voting, they have no home to go back to or if they do, they don’t even have dental coverage or adequate health insurance, but that’s fine because according to those fools, ‘white supremacy’ is going to take care of ALL of their issues. Just ask those white folks down in Florida who are still reeling from Hurricane Michael. Many of them are homeless, fucked up and would still vote for Trump if only they could have gotten to a polling place because hate TRUMPS everything, including sickness, homelessness, joblessness and hunger.

So, Black folks, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and realize that if we don’t get our act together, we will never thrive. We should never look to a politician of ANY stripe to help us because since when have they ever??!!! Get real! What you need to do, you won’t do and if you continue down this path, expect despair, hopelessness and death. It need not be this way, but until we understand that looking out for one another is our only hope,  we will continue to be disappointed on ‘Election Day’ and every day thereafter.

Finally, I’ll leave you with a little poem I wrote for Election Day 2016. I titled it:

I Voted!

I voted……..in my sleep.
 Stood in line with the other sheep
as we were prodded, one by one.
Oh I voted, but I voted for none.
Yes, into that voting booth, I went,
made my mind up to some extent.
I threw my ballot on the dirty floor,
said I’d never vote for a war whore.
 And that no bigot would get my vote,
I’d rather drown in a goddamn moat.
The security guards escorted me out,
told me I was crazy, without a doubt.
 But that’s okay because I had my say
on the 6th of November; election day!
Don’t do as I did and vote in your sleep,
head out the door like good little sheep.
Cast your vote for your favorite clown,
and I’ll sit back and watch as you drown
in piles of shit that they fling your way,
because you voted on election day!

Written by,
Shelby I. Courtland

So now you can say that you voted FOR the pile of shit that those politicians will heap on your plate. Not me, never that. Not again. I learned my lesson.

 

Once Again, “Mental Illness” Kills! Black People Gunned Down By “Mental Illness” At A Kroger Store

 

 

All over the internet, all I see is story after story about what occurred when a white man entered a synagogue and opened fire and yet I have to hunt for the story about how a “mentally ill” white man gunned down two descendants of slaves in Kentucky. One was gunned down inside a Kroger store and the other one was gunned down in the parking lot. “Mental illness” murdered two Black people and “Mental Illness” was known to have uttered racist statements prior to murdering two Black people inside a Kroger and in the parking lot of Kroger. But today is the first day that I have read that this crime is now being considered, a ‘hate crime’. Previously that distinction had already been given to the mass murder in a Jewish synagogue.

Police chief: Race was a factor in Kentucky grocery slayings
                                                         1 hr ago

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A police chief has acknowledged that the killings of two black people at a Kroger grocery store were racially motivated, days after the FBI announced that it is investigating the shootings as a potential federal hate crime.
The Courier Journal reports Jeffersontown Police Chief Sam Rogers told the congregation at First Baptist Church on Sunday that racism is “the elephant in the room” of this case.

So, they have finally changed the story from “Mental Illness” killed two descendants of slaves to a racist white terrorist killed two descendants of slaves. They were real quick to come to the conclusion that the Jewish synagogue mass shooting was a hate crime, but when it comes to descendants of slaves getting shot dead by racists, well, now, let’s not be too hasty in our rush to judgment. Let’s look at ALL the facts before we label this, a ‘hate crime’.

When the shooting took place, everyone inside and outside of that Kroger store knew that it was a ‘hate crime’. Racist terrorist, Gregory Alan Bush, had tried to get into a predominantly Black church, only the church doors were locked against his banging in an attempt to gain entrance. I guess he set out to be another Dylann Roof and when that wouldn’t do, went to a Kroger where he was sure to find some descendants of slaves shopping and so the killing began.

He shot a 69-year old grandfather in the back of his head as he shopped for items for a school project for his grandson, who was in the store with him. He then shot the man over and over as he lay on the floor, already dead.

An arrest report says Bush walked into the Kroger, pulled a gun from his waist and shot a man in the back of the head, then kept shooting him multiple times “as he was down on the floor.” The report says Bush then reholstered his gun, walked outside and killed a woman in the parking lot. Each victim died of multiple gunshot wounds, Rogers said.

Outside in the parking lot, Gregory Alan Bush told a ‘white’ man, “Don’t shoot me. I won’t shoot you. Whites don’t shoot whites.” Of course FBI statistics disprove this but white privilege disagrees. However, in this case, apparently whites don’t shoot whites since  gunfire was exchanged between Bush and the white man and though bullets flew, none hit their ‘intended’ target.

Meanwhile, 69-year old Maurice Stallard and 67-year old Vicki Lee Jones are lying on a coroner’s slab in the morgue awaiting autopsies to prove that they were shot multiple times by “Mental Illness“, no, strike that, by a racist terrorist while Mr. Stallard’s grandson will suffer trauma for the rest of his life after having seen his grandfather shot dead for no reason other than that this racist shithole is on fire from one end to the other with racists who have become even more emboldened thanks to Donald Trump’s bigoted rhetoric. I am not saying that there has not always been a serious and insidious problem of racists gunning down descendants of slaves throughout history in this stolen shithole because that would be a lie, but Donald Trump is partly responsible for why we are seeing such a deluge of almost hysterical hatred, prejudice, bigotry, racism and gun violence towards people Trump has cast in the role of ‘enemies of Amerikkka’. Anyone who is not white is fair ‘game’ to be hunted down and killed and Trump has the blood of Maurice Stallard and Vicki Lee Jones on his hands. With his “Make America ‘Great Again” slogan which we ALL know means “Make America WHITE Again,” he started this snowball rolling and now it is out-of-control.  And what does he do? He promptly tweets about the World Series.

Trump Scorned For Tweeting About World Series Hours After Synagogue Massacre

The president took time to question the tactics of L.A. Dodgers in his late night tweet.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings. It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake!

 

Of course, everyone’s panties and boxers are in a bunch because Trump displayed what he always displays, a complete and utter disregard for anyone else even those who were murdered a mere few hours before he tweeted about the World Series, never mention, the lack of attention the murder of two descendants of slaves received. The focus will always be on any group except for those of us with melanin in our skin. Once those Jews were murdered, no one even remembered that two descendants of slaves had been gunned down inside a Kroger and in the parking lot. That was put on the backburner so fast my head was spinning.

I don’t feel the need to write about what happened in that synagogue because that’s got enough coverage from the lamestream media as it is and the coverage continues, but there was hardly a footnote to point out that the murder of the two descendants of slaves has been upgraded to a hate crime. Am I shocked? Why should I be? This is just business as usual in this stolen shithole!

And all that has been pointed out about Gregory Alan Bush is that he was so severely mentally ill that he was not allowed to have guns, his parents were afraid of him because he had assaulted them before and was not on his meds. He had assaulted a deputy and yet, hardly ever saw a day in jail behind his alleged extensive criminal history. It has also been stated that his ex-wife had to take out a restraining order against him because he threatened her and called her all kinds of “nigger bitches.” Go figure!

We have to have eyes in the back of our heads even as we go grocery shopping. We have to die because we are the scapegoats for shits like Donald Trump. We have to die because our ancestors were dragged here. We have to die because we would not be here if whites were not the most depraved, sloths to ever slither and crawl all across this planet stealing, raping, pillaging and murdering. We have to die because hate is in control, has always been in control and will always be in control despite what we say or do to the contrary.

The utter disregard for human life that whites have is just beyond comprehending. The abject hatred they display is off the scales. The contempt they have for those not of their complexion is just overwhelming. Why they exist, I am at a loss to explain because whites have no value whatsoever. Their sole purpose is to seek out and destroy; wage war and kill. Invent weapons for mass destruction. Why ‘whites’ were put on this planet, I don’t fucking know because they are the mortal enemy of every blade of grass, every animal, every mammal, every being. What the hell did we do to deserve the likes of you? Where the fuck did you come from and why don’t you go back? We don’t fucking want you here!

And if Gregory Alan Bush did indeed, marry a Black woman, what the fuck is wrong with you? You not only married your mortal foe, you actually laid down with him and produced something that is not even entirely human for nothing born of whites is any good. Whatever Black woman took this racist for a husband and father to her ‘child’ needs her head examined. She is the one who is mentally ill. Gregory Alan Bush was not mentally ill when he murdered Maurice Stallard. He was not mentally ill when he murdered Vicki Lee Jones. He was a racist terrorist just like all the other racist terrorists who have been murdering descendants of slaves and Africans for hundreds of years. I don’t give a damn if Gregory Alan Bush stopped taking his antipsychotics. He knew what he was doing. He knew who he was shooting. And his statement to the white man out in the parking lot is not that of a confused, mentally ill psychotic. That was the statement of a racist terrorist who knew exactly what he was doing. “Don’t shoot me. I won’t shoot you. Whites don’t shoot whites.” What remained unspoken but is the ‘elephant in the room is, “because Donald Trump says so!”

Black folks, all over this blog, I have told you that you cannot receive love from hate. Hate is synonymous with “whites.” They are incapable of love. How in hell can you lie down with what has been killing those who look like you for years too numerous to count and who are still at it to this day. Some woman, who Bush called a “nigger bitch,” married and laid down with a piece of filth that went on to murder two innocent Black people at a Kroger store and you sat somewhere smiling at that THING and believed IT loved you??!!! Seriously??!!! You cozy up to those pasty parasites and drone on and on about how ‘love is blind’ and how “you don’t see color.” You’d better see those bullets and guns they love more than life itself since they are incapable of feeling affection for anything that has a beating heart. All whites care about is what they can steal from others who they then murder. What happened to the Indians was not a lesson to you? What happened to your ancestors was not a lesson to you? What they are doing to you is not even a lesson to you? When are you going to get the message? When are you ever going to learn? You cannot trust ‘whites’. You cannot turn your back on them. They don’t “love!” They don’t “feel!” They don’t “care.” They are soulless, heartless, parasitical monstrosities. And they prove that to you every single day. Why do you remain willfully stupid about whites? Why do you seek to emulate depravity, barbarity, inhumanity, heartlessness, corruption and deviance? Why do you aid them in the continuation of their species? For what does it gain you? Whites only take and take and take and then kill! That is their sole objective. That is their mission. That is their plan. That is ALL they do! They are diseased riddled parasites and parasites kill their host. You are willing to host one of those parasites in your body and then it will kill you. It is killing you and you are too stupid to realize the role you are playing in their grand scheme.

Two innocent Black people are dead. The lamestream media has moved on from their deaths because who the fuck cares? The focus is now on what happened at a Jewish synagogue. Those people came here willingly. The two Black people who were murdered by white filth did not.  They were given no choice since their ancestors were dragged here and were considered to be only three-fifths human by those who can lay no claim to having one ounce of humanity. Parasites are not human. Blood sucking leeches are not human and they are the closest things I can think of to liken whites to.

The only reason we are not reading about a mass murder inside a predominantly Black church is because church service was over for the day and so the doors were locked and only about 10 people were still inside the church. Someone was sitting in a car in the parking lot of the church and witnessed Gregory Alan Bush banging on the church door, seeking admittance. The church security cameras did indeed, corroborate that Gregory Alan Bush tried to gain entrance to the church to shoot it up. What kind of monster goes to a church in order to shoot people? No ‘human’ could do something like that. And yet, we never learn. A white racist parasite bombed a church in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963 in which four little Black girls were killed and many others seriously wounded and then another white racist parasite went into a church and gunned down nine Black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina and the only reason Gregory Alan Bush did not get the chance to do the same at the First Baptist Church is because he was too late for church service. When will you learn??!!! What must it take???!!! Sadly, willful blindness and the belief that ‘whites’ are good will be our downfall!

“Maurice Stallard and Vicki Lee Jones, the already forgotten victims of white supremacy, I wish you bon voyage!”

The Extraordinary Courage of Black People

 

It takes an extraordinary amount of courage to get up every morning knowing that you face an enemy who hates you more than you can ever know and that their hatred of you is so intense,  they are consumed by it. And yet, descendants of slaves do so every single morning…or night, depending on when your ‘day’ starts. As heavy as my heart is every single time I open my eyes, I open them and get up to face the next round of challenges that I must face to get me through another day, to run the gauntlet of whites who bombard me with their unrepentant racism, bigotry, hatred and prejudice because I cannot change the color of my skin.

I shake my head in disbelief when on days set aside to honor Black men and women throughout history who have made the ultimate sacrifice, whites insist on pretending to laud their achievements even as they seek to undermine their efforts by taking us backwards in time. And when we peacefully protest the murder of those who look like us at the hands of racist police, we are viewed as thankless and ungrateful because whites believe that those of us who are in America by virtue of slavery, should be grateful that we are here since it is their belief that if we were in Africa, our plight would be a million times worse. Their arrogant and callous disregard for us never wanes since they refuse to accept us as ‘human’ thanks to their enslavement of our ancestors. We are castigated by them every single day if we cannot take nothing and build upon it. We are held in contempt by them because our slave ancestors had no business to hand down to us. We are held in contempt because we own no land on which to build banks and hospitals, schools and grocery stores.

The whites look to areas in the inner cities where violence is a daily occurrence and where drug deals go down and prostitution for drugs is an epidemic and blame us for what ails our communities as though we have ships and planes to bring drugs into our communities. We are the scapegoats for why cuts to social programs are made as though it is a punishment to us for our existence even though whites make use of social programs more so than we do. We were at one time, self-reliant in the 70s and 80s, owning homes and businesses, but because whites always need a scapegoat and must always have the upper hand, our homes and businesses were taken from us through imminent domain and other nefarious laws that were put on the books to disrupt the social structure of Black communities, nationwide as we were herded into subsidized, substandard government housing in projects and ‘ghettos’. Desegregation was not a win for the Black family. It was a loss and we have been losing from the time our stolen ancestors were dragged ashore.

Our Black brothers and sisters are incarcerated inside the new slave pens and for all those who succumb to death at the white man’s hands, millions more still fight to survive. Many are innocent who have been imprisoned for decades and upon their exoneration, do not hold grudges because we are extraordinary people. Whites know this and they hate us for it. Their slave patrols were formed to round us up for existing and to herd us back to the plantation because whites think we never should have been allowed off the plantation and they have made sure that we know that we never really did. We see bars everywhere we turn. It matters not if we are locked behind actual bars, they are there all the same and they are not invisible to us. They place barriers and roadblocks before us to intimidate us and to keep us from coming together as a community and to realize our own potential.

So that we don’t get any ideas about ‘freedom’, we are shown time and time again that whites will stop at nothing, even murder to make sure that our place is somewhere underneath their boot or the ground. We need only look to the headlines, daily to see examples of ways they use to instill fear in us which is why we are shot dead by their uniformed slave patrols who are never held accountable for their actions against us, including murder. They take to the streets with hoods and sheets and guns to show that they can gun us down anywhere at anytime and that there is nothing that we can do about it, and yet, we survive. We carry on. We keep getting up. We live despite them and in spite of them. Yes, many of our brothers and sisters have fallen, but those of us who live are a testament to the courage it takes to bury our fallen brothers and sisters and live on, carrying their memory to the mountaintop as we look over and see that all is not lost. One day, we shall come into our own.

The white man’s days are numbered. He IS his possessions; his things. And like all man made things, they never survive the test of time.  Their multi-million dollar beach houses are being swept away. They are forced to flee ever inland by the very arrogance that led them to burn this planet up and still expect an ocean view. Their mountain get-away homes are being burnt to the ground. Their island paradises are being covered in igneous rock or are under water. Their businesses are flooded, their SUVs floating down the street, their boats swept out to sea and their very skin is suffering from the effects of a sun that kisses and deepens ours. In this time of heaviness in our hearts for another of our brother who has fallen thanks to the racism, prejudice, bigotry and hatred that defines whites, we shall carry our memory of him to the mountaintop and show him that he did not die in vain. We, who live will continue to get up and face another day of hatred, racism, prejudice and bigotry and we will not be defeated because we are humanity, defined and we have the extraordinary courage of Black people. To ALL my Black brothers and sisters, though our days may seem dark and our nights even darker, believe me, those who persecute us for what we have no control over are going to reap what they have sown in ways never before imagined. Keep the faith throughout these dark time.

I write this to honor ALL my fallen brothers and sisters and to especially honor Botham Shem Jean. I wish you bon voyage, my brother!

Two black men were arrested waiting at a Starbucks. Now the company, police are on the defensive.

This picture, I thought, was very interesting!

Dr Martin Luther King Jr., arrested at a lunch counter in 1958 for trying to eat lunch.
Two Black men trying to meet a business acquaintance at a Starbucks in 2018 were arrested. What has changed despite all the marches and protests? Not a damn thing!

Starbucks, which once asked baristas to start a conversation about race with customers, faces fierce criticism after two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia store, sparking accusations of racial profiling over what the company’s chief executive now calls a “reprehensible” incident.”

What is reprehensible about this is the fact that nothing has changed sixty years after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., was arrested and jailed for merely attempting to eat at a lunch counter. And some people have the nerve to claim that there was a “Civil Rights MOVEMENT.” Really? How so? Because from where I sit, it looks to me as though as descendants of slaves in AmeriKKKa, we are moving backwards in time. There has been no ‘movement’ forward out of racism, prejudice, bigotry, Jim Crow and hate.

I really don’t need to even say much in this post because the picture speaks for itself. However, there are calls to boycott Starbucks for what goes down every single day against descendants of slaves in this fucking shithole that was stolen from the Indians and built up on the backs of those who look like these men depicted in that picture. I don’t have to boycott Starbucks because I have never patronized Starbucks. Coffee ain’t that goddamn important! Fuck Starbucks!

This entire racist ass country needs to be boycotted. There is not one single ‘white’ owned establishment that is any different from this here Starbucks and we had damn well better be all about understanding this. Our skin color gets us followed around in every single store we go into. So, hell! Maybe, Amazon coming along and putting paid to brick and mortar stores might just be a ‘win-win’ for descendants of slaves seeing as how there’s no white sales clerk to follow us around online as we shop for a new pair of shoes. Maybe, I have been too hard on Amazon and online shopping unless they decide to stop delivery to so-called ‘Black neighborhoods’, then we got another problem. Damn! Maybe I should not have given them any ideas. Never mind, they would have eventually thought of it anyway. But since gentrification is now the law of the land, descendants of slaves are being pushed out into the suburbs and so, “ship my order Amazon!” “Ship my fucking order Target!”

And here the CEO of Starbucks, Kevin Johnson, has offered his ‘deepest apologies’ for the incident that was initiated by the ‘white’ Starbucks manager and so who do you think promptly shows up to arrest two Black men after a call from whitey? Why…SIX cops, of course and the white ones considered it to be their pleasure to place handcuffs on those two ‘thug’ Black men who were in Starbucks doing what? Sitting down and waiting for the other party to show up. Word is that they had requested to use the restroom and this was denied them since they had failed to purchase something. Now, if they had gone out back and pissed in the alley, the police would have been called about that and they would have been jailed for ‘public urination’. As usual, a ‘lose-lose’ situation for descendants of slaves.

Starbucks CEO, Kevin Johnson also had this to say:

“Our store manager never intended for these men to be arrested and this should never have escalated as it did.”

Is this clown for real?

“The manager then called 911 for assistance, the company said.”

What happens when you call 911? THE POLICE COME! But according to this clueless CEO of Starbucks, a nun and a priest, apparently, should show up when you call 911, not the KKKops! For the love of!!!! And this man is actually a CEO? Unbelievable! So, the manager calls 911 and reports that two Black men are in Starbucks, they asked to use the restroom, were told they could not. They then sit down to wait for the other party to arrive and this is deemed suspicious and so a call to 911 was initiated and yet the CEO states that the “manager never intended for these men to be arrested,” the manager just intended that the police should come and escort the men to a port-a-pot out back? Yeah! I’m buying that and if anybody else does, then I have some real nice beachfront property and it is smack dab in the middle of a desert. It’s beautiful! And should sell quick!

Descendants of slaves, for the love of gawd, put down those useless, lame ass, dusty ass protest signs and quit marching because your marching is in vain. You don’t know this by now? Plan on getting the hell out of here. If you have enough business sense to meet with someone in Starbucks or anywhere else for investment purposes, invest in your own ass to get the hell out of here! You will never be able to change a damn thing here. Your children will not thank you for ruining their lives by handing them to the ‘For Profit Prison Industrial Complex’. Nor will they thank you when they are shot at for simply asking for directions as was the case with this 14-year old child.

Brennan Walker, 14, said he was walking alone to school Thursday after he missed the bus. As he trekked the 4 miles to Rochester High School in Rochester Hills, he got lost and knocked on the doors of several houses, he said.

The teen said he went up to one home and knocked on the door a few times.

A woman came to the door, yelling at him, he told WDIV.

“I was trying to explain to that I wanted to get directions to go to my school,” he said. The man eventually came out with a shotgun and fired one shot at the teen who was running away.

The child was only asking directions and because ‘whites’ are so racist, they would shoot a child just because of the color of his skin? Indeed that white bastard in the above photo did shoot at that child! This child was only asking for directions and it was later revealed that the white bitch who answered the door told her husband, “Why would THOSE people be coming here?” Bitch! Ask your ancestors why the fuck we would be coming here. You have them to thank for why our dark-skinned asses are over here, you filthy, diseased, putrid, white whore!

Such as this is exactly why I hardly ever blog anymore because for the life of me, I cannot understand why I have not burst into flames every single time I turn on my computer and read such as this shit!

Descendants of slaves, do whatever you can to get the fuck out of here! That is another reason why I am not blogging as much because I am doing everything in MY power to get the fuck out of here! And I would advise you to do likewise. This shithole is done for and the ‘whites’ are trying, as usual, to blame everybody else for the shit that is now all up in their face. Read the poverty reports that are coming out of ‘Whitey Whiteville, USA’. They ain’t having a good ass day and as much as they try and pretend that descendants of slaves are all up on the dole, truth be told, it is their asses that are in line for starvation because Trump is busy sending bombs over to Syria and cutting the hell out of food stamps and when those ‘white’ meth heads cannot sell their food stamps for more meth and the ‘white’ heroin addicts can’t sell theirs for heroin, the fur is going to fly then. Not to mention that Trump is also demanding that all food stamp recipients submit to a piss test. And we ALL know those oxycontin-addicted whites, who are now shooting heroin, are going to fail those tests AND how! The moaning coming from Whitey Whiteville, USA is going to get even louder!

Descendants of slaves, get in a leaky goddamn boat, if you have to, but get the hell out! Black Lives Matter is not going to save you. The Black Panther is not going to save you! Marching and protesting is not going to save you because it most definitely has not thus far. What the hell do you have to lose? Your life, if you stay!

Get Out!” It’s NOT just a movie!

I’m Back!

It’s been awhile, I know. But if anyone has read my last blog post, then you already know that I was hell bent on getting out of Baltimore and I could not wait for the movers to fit me in on their schedule. I ordered a Penske truck, hired some guys to load the truck and actually put my ‘big’ girl pants on and drove the truck myself for hundreds of miles. Now, some of you may recall that when I was attempting to leave Minnesota heading for Baltimore, I could not even drive my vehicle because of injuries I sustained in a recent car crash, but this time around, car crash be damnned, I was going to get the hell out of Baltimore, one way or another. I drove hell for leather out of Baltimore and I didn’t stop except for gas and restroom breaks and of course, me being me, I happened to chance upon an overdose victim lying on a bathroom floor in a Sheetz gas station in the back of beyond. People were yelling for someone to get the baby that had fallen out of her hands and landed on the floor beside the overdose victim who was in the women’s restroom, also lying on the floor. For the love of!!! And for the first time in my life, I had to use a GASP!, men’s restroom. You guys can have it. One young lady who was about 12 was with her mother and her three siblings and when she saw the inside of the men’s room, she gasped and ran out while her mother was begging her to use the restroom because they did not want to have to stop again right up the road. That little lady was having none of it. Not to mention, one of the workers at the gas station had to provide us ladies with toilet tissue. You guys don’t wipe your butt? GEBUS CHRIST! You’re nasty! But as usual, I digress.

I made it out of Baltimore, just barely because I got stuck in horrific traffic and was basically crawling out of that hellhole. But I made it out. Where I am now is Hillbilly Heaven, Redneck Row, Klan Headquarters, NRA Recruitment Center, Deer Hunters Anonymous, Trailer Park Outcasts, No-Teeth Bubba Club and the list is endless, but you get the message. So far, thankfully, none of the above mentioned groups have bothered to ‘bother’ me. They’re too busy at the gun range and at the road side gun shows to even look in my general direction. Do I feel threatened? Not at all. You see, I was raised amongst this lot and don’t I know them or what? I know them and they know the likes of me and I can put up with them more so than where I left; Baltimore, that is. Ain’t it something how I can put up with the ‘Supremacy Clubs’ but I couldn’t put up with being in “The Hood?”

Now, I bet you’re saying, “Shelby, have you lost your mind?” No, not yet, I don’t think. Just because I now live in a trailer park with all the riffraff you can imagine is no reason to suppose that I am worse off than I was in Baltimore. Like I said, I grew up around the likes of these folks who go on and on about ‘supremacy’ to whomever will listen, but the thing is see, I don’t listen. I’m too busy swilling my moonshine right alongside the likes of them. We understand each other and my trailer is just a bit wider than theirs. You see, I gots me a ‘double wide’ since I had so much stuff loaded up in the truck and the folks that make up Hillbilly Heaven, Redneck Row, Klan Headquarters, NRA Recruitment Center, Deer Hunters Anonymous, Trailer Park Outcasts and No-Teeth Bubba Club actually helped me unload the truck and moved me in. Once I opened my mouth and said, “Howdy y’all!” They knew I was from a neck of the woods like their own. I may have a little deeper tint to my skin, but it meant no difference to them. They asked me how I liked their ‘gawd’, Donald Trump and I said, “I think he’s the greatest thing for America since the Boston Tea Party and that right there sent them into spasms of hoots and hollers. They even passed the jug of corn liquor around to me and after I swiped it with my sweater sleeve, I partook of a swig and I gotta tellya, it put hair on my chest. But, we is getting along, oh yes, we is. In fact, we had a discussion long into the night about Trump and the national anthem and the flag and #TakeAKnee and they were of course against taking a knee and I told them that likewise, I was agin taking a knee. They was outdone that I was, a few of ’em were, while some of em just leaned back with a knowing grin on their face like they knew what I was going to say about that.

I said, “I wouldn’t take a knee for the national anthem, nor would I place my hand over my heart because I ain’t American. That’s for you guys to do. I happen to be here on sufferance through no fault of my own and so that lets me off the hook in so far as recognizing national anthems, flags and the like. How do they apply to me? They don’t. Why should I get bent out of shape over an anthem and a flag that has no meaning for me since I was never recognized as a citizen of this nation? If others want to make a big deal out of something that does not pertain to them in any way, shape or form, then that’s on them, but as for me, I got no skin in the ‘game’. I’m merely a bystander. I am not required to take up arms in defense of this nation because this is not my nation. This is not my country for if it were, then I would have no need to take a knee when the national anthem was played. I would have no need to refuse to place my hand over my heart when reciting the pledge of allegiance. Pledge allegiance to what? A country that has never recognized me as a citizen? And why should I get upset if Donald Trump calls some grown men who play a child’s game, ‘sons of bitches’ because he is just doing what he has been doing since getting himself elected; being an egotistical asshole? This fool lives to goad people into playing right into his hands. Donald Trump is good for America because he has been able to do what no other president could do and that is to expose America’s hypocrisy for all the world to see. He has given you guys in the Klan and you Hillbilly Heaven Boys and you Redneck Row guys, your gonads back. You can now waltz down the street flying your confederate flags and wave your rifles and handguns in the air without hearing your president condemn you for doing so. You feel that he is one of you. He got cho back. You feel that since Obama had my back for eight years, it’s now YOUR turn. So, hey! I ain’t mad at none of you guys because even though Obama ignored the likes of me, Trump is going to do what for you? Exactly what he has done; embolden you to show your true colors and for that, I thank him. I have always known where we stand, but it had to take Donald Trump for some to figure it out? Unbefuckingbelievable! Now, pass that jug over here again!”

So you see folks, Donald Trump is quite actually doing more FOR America than any one of us could have ever hoped for. He has removed all doubt that racism, bigotry, prejudice, intolerance and hatred was ever really on its way out the door. It has simply been seething beneath a thin surface, waiting to be uncovered. And while I was waiting to get internet service hooked up to my double wide trailer, I was perusing blogs on my flimsy, cheap ‘smartphone’ and I came across so many blogs by ‘whites’ who stated that since Donald Trump exposed what ALL Black folks already knew, they are now quite aware that they are actually, drum roll please, “A RACIST!” WOW! May they now go to the head of the class! Some expressed the desire to change. Others wondered if they could do so. Some claimed to have had no idea that they were racist until after having been confronted with acts of racism whereas they saw themselves thanks to those ‘uncovered acts’. Don’t that beat all? I do believe that I would know, and in no uncertain terms, if I had it in for people who filled me with hatred for them based solely on the color of their skin of which they have no control. But, by all means, ‘white’ folks, please continue in your attempts to pretend that you are just now finding out, thanks to Donald Trump’s descent to the presidency that you are what you’ve always been; flaming hypocritical shits who are indeed, racist, ignorant, hate-filled, pathetic worms who slither around on this planet filling it with your toxic slime.

And no, I will never acknowledge your anthems or your flags. “I Am Not Your Negro.” I will not celebrate your holidays. I will never bear witness to what you consider to be your achievements when your achievements are not your own but are due to the backbreaking efforts of those who look like me while you took the credit and banked the profits. To me, this is not about an anthem or a flag, but about your flaming hypocrisy and arrogance in thinking that someone had to point out to you that you are a vile piece of filth not even worthy to be worm food. Fuck you!

Yes indeed, I am back! Now, ain’t you glad! I know you is, you pasty-faced, fuck-faced racist shits!

A Child Was Born!

 

A child was born, dark as night,
and sent out into the world.
Everywhere he turned,
such insults, people hurled.

He took this all in stride,
grew up and became a man.
Took one look at his skin,
it was darker than a tan.

On a mountaintop, he stood,
looking out on a sea of hate.
He decided that once and for all,
he’d be the master of his own fate.

He had been followed for many a day,
even when he’d stopped to rest.
He thought he’d never feel secure,
knew that to him, this was a test.

God, they said, loved him
and he believed it for awhile.
He carried with him, a Bible.
 It was evidence at his trial.

You see this man, he finally snapped
on a hot, sunny day in June.
One insult was one too many,
a white man called him, a baboon.

He took his Bible in his hand
and he beat that white man good.
His blood did fill the pages,
it soaked right through his hood.

The Klan, they’d met their match.
Hate finally beat out love.
And the moral of this story?
A man will push back when he’s shoved.

Now remember, you read it here first. Black people are seriously starting to get fed up with white folks’ bullshit and there is going to come a day of reckoning. So, please continue to treat us like shit and you’ll find yourselves wondering what the hell! Keep your hatred coming and soon we will forget about all of those fake-assed fairy tales your ancestors got us listening to about the Buybull, Jebus Christ and some more religious shit. We are going to stop with the preachyfying and get with the program that we are going to ‘stand our ground’ and ain’t nobody’s day gonna be sunny when that happens. It ain’t here yet, but by all the sinners in church, itsa coming.
