What Happened To Us Along The Way?

black1

Somewhere along the way we got lost.
We strayed from the path of our forefathers.
And as women, we seem to be no longer aware
that we owe a legacy of love to our daughters.

We never flinched when our sisters were called ‘Hos’.
And we never thought anything of this disrespect.
Our men were not taken to task for their misogyny.
Now, of their daughters, we see only the neglect.

What happened to us along the way?
When did we become so jaded and so lost?
And have we ever stopped to wonder why?
Why we are now being made to pay the cost?

You live in a world of people who hate your guts.
And you give to them the respect you deny your mother.
Never do you stop to think that if the tables were turned,
would a white man ever stand up and be counted as your brother?

This one speaks to all Black people because we have seriously lost our way when we as Black  women, answer to being called a “Ho!” And Black men, you should be ashamed of yourselves in calling Black women, ‘Hos’.  These women gave birth to you and the least you could do is show them the respect they deserve and what about your sons and your daughters? How are you setting an example for your sons when they hear you disrespect their mother and by doing so, you also disrespect your own daughter because if you can call the mother of your children out of their name, then you won’t mind when someone else does likewise to your own daughter. These issues need to be addressed because we need some unity in the Black community especially with all that is going down every single day. If we cannot depend on each other, who can we depend on?

We’d best wake the hell up because at the end of the day, who the hell else is caring about the Black family?

Merry Christmas Sandra Bland And To All Black Women In AmeriKKKa!

Sandra Bland1

 

Merry Christmas to ALL Black women. If you don’t know where you stand, then ask Sandra Bland. Ask the Grand Jury that decided that indictments for her murder were not necessary. Ask Bernie Sanders why he said, “There’s no doubt in my mind that she, like too many African Americans who die in police custody, would be alive today if she were a white woman,” Sanders said in a statement. “We need to reform a very broken criminal justice system.”

How the fuck can a system that is so broken; so deliberately broken be reformed? It needs to be destroyed.

But there you sit, Black women, wrapping presents and smiling at your daughters who may one day end up just like Sandra Bland. There you sit, hoping that Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton will initiate a reform of a fucked up criminal justice system that is anything but JUST to US! It is JUST US in the criminal injustice system and don’t you know it. But still, you wrap gifts and head to the mall for some last minute gift ideas. You laughingly joke with your friends that you have finally approached the end of your shopping. The Christmas tree is decorated. The Christmas dinner is going to be delicious this year. You have got so much to be thankful for. Yes, be thankful that you and your daughters are not Sandra Bland. Be real thankful. Be so thankful that you forget to stop for a moment and forget about Sandra Bland. Forget about the stupid goddamn reason she was pulled over. Forget about the fact that she was jailed in Texas over a minor, a MINOR traffic infraction and did she ever see the light of day afterwards? Hell no! She was SO goddamn depressed over her new job in Texas that she hanged herself in a Texas jail. Texas! The Lone Star State; home of the Alamo where a brave group of white shits that had fucked up the Indians confiscated Mexico and decided that THEY were the oppressed. Yeah, right! When the fuck have whites EVER been oppressed? Yeah, I’d fucking like to see THAT oppression! It’s always been the other way around. Oh how they love to re-write history to suit their own fucked up agenda. But those of us who refuse to be blindsided and bamboozled by those bloodthirsty savages know better. We know that Sandra Bland did not kill herself regardless of what some see-through skinned rejects from hell say!

Hold on while I top my 64′ Christmas tree with a lily-white assed angel! “Oh dear white god, high atop your heavenly perch, I am feeling your love! Oh fucking yes I am! And so is Sandra Bland. She felt your goddamn love so damn much that she hanged herself. She wanted to fucking meet you that damn bad! I just know she did. The white motherfuckers tell me so!” Isn’t that why no one is being held accountable for her death? Of course it is! No white filth in Texas had a goddamn thing to do with Sandra Bland found hanged in a jail cell. Those handy trash bags are put there for the express purpose of hanging your depressed ass if you feel the call. And Sandra Bland, according to all reports from filthy white asses, did indeed heed the call to meet her white ass maker in the sky. Praise the Lawd and pass the blood of Geezus to cleanse and wash away her sins! St. Peter done opened the gates of heaven and Sandra Bland is poised to enter. Oh wait! Hell no! She cannot enter the pearly gates because she committed the ultimate sin; she committed suicide in a Texas jail cell. Sakes alive! What the fuck? Sandra Bland was put through hell on earth and dammit if she’s not hell bound upon completion of her stint of hell on earth. Ain’t religion grand? Sandra Bland should not have been buried on consecrated ground for she was a sinner of the first degree. “Hear ye! Hear ye! No suicide shall be buried on consecrated ground. So sorry Sandra Bland. Heaven is not for you!” so sayeth the white man.

Heaven is for the saintly ass whites that murdered you. They are the vile and filthy shits that blindly send Black women and their daughters into churches all across AmeriKKKa; to sit up and worship some lily-white assed god that will never recognize you. You’re not white-assed. So, sit your worthless ass down, Black women and continue worshipping that which would kill each and every one of you if they could. And believe me, they are trying. You are worthless to them. Don’t that beat all? Oh fucking yeah! But you fall for their bullshit every time. You head to church on Sunday morning. You sit up in the pew and you listen to the word as written by lily white ass and you believe it. You swear by it. You uphold it and it never lets you down, does it? “Oh, my son Cedric will graduate from high school, ‘god’ willing!” Fuck god. He don’t will shit! God is a figment of a white motherfucker’s imagination and he uses that ‘god’ to control you and it is working. Why should it not? You’re fucking brainwashed and don’t lily white ass know it. He’s done a goddamn good ass job of it!

So, go ahead and sing your Christmas carols. Deck the halls with boughs of holly and fa-lalalala all goddamn day long. Spend your money! Max out your credit cards. Make some rich white shit’s day! Give over the title to your car and then buy that gigamongus 220″ HDTV. Hock your ass for the white man’s junk! He won’t even thank you for it. But he will hang your ass in a Texas jail and claim that you hanged yourself; you were THAT depressed AND suicidal! Deck your goddamn halls!

Merry Christmas, Sandra Bland and to you a silent, lonely and deadly night!

Now start celebrating this goddamn bullshit! Decorate the fucking tree. Wish every damn body a Merry fucking Christmas, gorge yourselves on a butchered pig, while becoming one, and then open up yer debt! Even if you’re drunk, you’ll recognize it; it’s plastic and its made in overseas sweatshops! So do the corporations a big huge favor; buy, buy, buy and then when it’s all over, throw the tree on the curb for bulk trash pickup because remember, we’re worried about the health of the planet, you goddamn hypocrites!

The Flag Has Been Replaced!

flag has been replaced

The flag has been replaced,

and freedom has been displaced,

to a cold and lonely grave,

along with another slave.

The flag’s new color scheme,

does not share in Dr. King’s dream,

that he dreamt in days long gone,

when he marched for a brighter dawn,

and for our basic human rights,

rights enjoyed by all the whites.

The flag is black and blue,

and red is its color too.

It stands for all Black men,

confined in the new slave pen.

Red is the color they bleed,

because of supremacy’s creed.

Blue is the color of woe,

it’s long been the Black man’s foe.

Wherever there’s a cop in blue,

you WILL bid a Black man, “Adieu!”

Yes Black is under attack,

so please watch each other’s back.

They know we have no place to go,

because they stole us so long ago!

The Amerikkkan flag don’t mean shit to me because it was never meant FOR me. So, I’ll never salute it or claim to fight for it! To hell with it and fuck it!
