White Women, I’m Glad You’re Showing Up. But I’m Not Sure I Trust You Just Yet. – Laura Cathcart Robbins

That is some straight up bullshit! White women are NOT in this with Black women and for them to pretend otherwise would be a lie!

 

 

Here we go! Another ‘apologetic’ post from what resembles a half breed. Go figure! And let me make myself clear on this. I do NOT agree with this Laura Cathcart Robbins. I just posted this piece of shit of hers to debunk it!

 

But circa 2020, those white women are with us now. They are marching alongside us; they are calling their congressperson and crying out for change; they are showing their solidarity on social media (post after post after post ― and yo, you can chill on that a little, we get it).

They’re giving us the support I longed for and needed back in 1992. They have shown up in a big way, and some compelling people are taking notice. But here’s the thing: I’m not entirely sure how I feel about that support now. My experiences with the Karens of the world have left me feeling salty.

Robbins is yarning on and on about the ‘Rodney King’ beating and how whites were more vocal about some white truck driver being pulled out of his truck during the Rodney King riots than they were over the merciless beating of Rodney King at the hands of LAPD. She was hoping for some lasting change to come about since the vicious beating was recorded. But she thinks that what happened to Rodney King on March 3, 1991 should have been enough of a wake-up call as to what whites were doing to Black people so that the shit would cease. She thinks that 29 years should have made a difference. For the love of !!!!!

Four hundred years and counting has not made a gnat’s ass worth of difference and so why does she think that 29 years should make a difference? Why is she pretending astonishment that George Floyd took Rodney King’s place in 2020, along with hundreds of other Black people? Why does she think the beatings and the shootings by kops of Black people should have ceased just because there was video footage of Rodney King getting himself beaten half to death?

But Robbins says, “those white women are with us now.” What???!!! Like the white woman who LIED and got Emmett Till murdered? Like the white women who stood and watched Black boys and men hanging from trees and laughed? Like the white woman who murdered Botham Shem Jean in his own apartment and made up LIES that she thought he was in hers? Like the white woman who was violating park rules by allowing her dog to remain unleashed and who when called out on that shit by a Black man, called the kops on the Black man who was out bird watching, LIED and told the kops that an “African American MAN was assaulting her?” Are “those the white women who are with us now?” That vicious pack of filthy, lying sluts???!!!

Oh yes, I can see how Robbins would come to the conclusion that “those white women are with us now” because they are standing somewhere on a protest line pretending to give a good goddamn about what they and their counterparts do to us. White women are some of the most vile creatures to ever slither across this planet. They are the same as those white male slugs that they hatch.

“They’re giving us the support I longed for and needed back in 1992”

White women are giving us support??!! What support? Where is it? Support is NOT attending a protest. Support is not hugging a Black person. Support is NOT stating that you have a Black friend. Support is NOT dating a Black man. Support is not marrying a Black man. Is this Robbins idiot for real??!!

Yep! There is definitely MORE white in her ass than Black because only whites can come out and say shit like that: “They’re giving us support.” Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit!

If white women were about shit, they would be demanding that the prison cell doors be opened and that Black inmates who have been cooling their heels inside prisons for 25 years should be released. If white women were about shit, they would be making sure that Black children were not sitting up in schools that lacked heating, air conditioning, computers, desks and books. If white women were about shit, they would be demanding an end to GENTRIFICATION. If white women were about shit, they would be questioning why the outcome for Black women giving birth is not the equivalent of their outcome. If white women were about shit, those kops that they are dating or married to would not be out on the streets beating the hell out of Black people and shooting them for the hell of it. If white women were about shit, they would be posting the names of ALL the members of white supremacy groups, bar none. If white women were about shit, they would be demanding to know why there are so many missing Black children and women while there are Amber Alerts and ‘missing children’ websites that only feature whites. So don’t give me that bullshit about “white women supporting us.” White women have no use for supporting us because they benefit from the system that keeps us down; white supremacy. White women are not about to do anything to fuck with their white privilege.

I might be coming off as judgmental and callous (sorry about that). But please understand that we’ve been through COVID 19, three months of quarantine, Breonna Taylor being murdered by the police in her sleep, Ahmaud Aubery being hunted and gunned down by a former cop and his son, Christian Cooper being targeted by Amy Cooper (no relation), and now George Floyd ― it’s a lot.

WHAT.THE.HELL.

What Black woman in her right mind would feel the need to ‘apologize’ for speaking truth to white women? What Black woman would keep talking about how sorry she is to upset white women with real talk? What Black woman would give a shit about how white women took what she put down?

These fake ass Black female impersonators have got to go! Stop pretending that your ass is Black, Laura Cathcart Robbins. There ain’t shit Black about you because this entire article was written as an apology letter to white women for interrupting their “sitting around the pool cocktail hour.” Those white women who were seen at protests were nothing more than props. They don’t give a damn about what is happening to Black people. They will never give a damn about Black people and I’ll be damned before I apologize to those pasty faced, flat assed she devils, EVER!

Only REAL Black women would stay true to themselves and tell it like it is, UNAPOLOGETIC!!!! And damn the consequences. And once more, for the dumb as all hell motherfuckers in the back row, I don’t give a damn for some white woman’s feelings. They don’t have any feelings because first, they must be ‘human’ and that is what white males and females can NEVER aspire to and so Laura Cathcart Robbins, take several seats because whatever the hell you are, you ain’t Black! That’s for damn sure! Apologize to white women for the vile ass creatures they are??!!! On the fucking twelfth of NEVER! That’s how REAL BLACK WOMEN ROLL! Bitch, get the fuck to steppin’!

 

As Usual, Black People Have To Show How It’s Done By Walking Off The Job At Amazon

White folks want to always drone on and on about how they take the initiative in order to get things done. Oh you take the initiative alright when it comes to fucking up our lives while we have to take the initiative to fight against you for our right to even exist in this shithole called, Amerikkka. But it is mostly Black people who are having to fight for their right to exist while working at Amazon warehouses where they are expected to fulfill NON-ESSENTIAL orders with many of their co-workers falling ill with coronavirus.

Michigan Amazon workers walk off the job as 3rd coronavirus case confirmed at facility

 

Amazon workers at the distribution center in Romulus, Michigan, walked off their jobs Wednesday at noon in response to the company’s failure to protect the health of its employees amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Recently, two positive cases of coronavirus have been found at the DTW1 fulfillment center and a third was confirmed early Wednesday morning.

Mario Crippen, a leader of the walkout and a worker at the DTW1 fulfillment center, took to the microphone and said the company should not continue to sell non-essential items. However, many essential items are out of stock.

So let me get this straight, Amazon is not making those workers continue to put themselves and their families at risk by working to sell ‘essential’ items, they are keeping those workers on the warehouse floor to send lazy ass motherfuckers some stupid shit that could wait. More than likely those workers’ lives are on the line over sending out nail polish, games, toys and other shit of the like for the ‘shelter in place’ crowd to entertain themselves and their little hellions. I would walk the fuck out too!

How in the world can Amazon state that it is doing everything possible to make sure that its employees are protected and working in a safe environment when not one, not two, but three employees all working at the same facility have tested positive for COVID-19? Spouting useless rhetoric from a form letter does nothing when the health and safety of workers are meaningless to employers as is the case with Amazon.

And AGAIN, I reiterate as I’ve done multiple times, I have NEVER in my life ordered a goddamn thing from Amazon and I never will. I don’t give a damn if I have to go around butt ass naked, never will I encourage the flagrant abuse and contempt for those who must work in an Amazon warehouse by purchasing a goddamn thing from Amazon. But apparently, the rest of this world is filled with brain dead, lazy ass motherfuckers who could care less about anyone so long as their fucking games, toys, nail polish and other stupid shit is heading out of Amazon warehouses and if they contain coronavirus, shut the fuck up! You asked for this shit and now you’re going to get it because it is quite obvious that Amazon doesn’t give a fuck about its customers because those sick employees ‘laid hands’ on those products that are coming to your door via a delivery driver who has touched a package that also probably contains coronavirus and so the spread of this contagion continues.

When will you stupid dumb fucks ever wake up from your hypnotic stupor and get with the program that Amazon workers are not going to be the only ones impacted? When you order shit, that shit you order has the potential to be carrying an extremely lethal contagion and despite what those in the medical field are recommending, I have seen plenty of people touch shit and then touch their faces. Sometimes, it is just a reflex action since some people have been doing that for too damn long and can’t stop now.

But as usual, I digress, there is picture after picture of American descendants of slaves taking the initiative to try and take care of their health and those of their loved ones by refusing to put themselves and their families at risk despite the obvious financial consequences they face. While the whites are running for the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts, Black people are expected to still stand somewhere in a warehouse next to the coronavirus sick just so that they can send out your fucking games and toys for your brats, is that about right? I would ask how do you whites sleep at night, but I know how you can sleep at night. In order for something like this to keep you up, you must first have to have a conscience, a heart, empathy, compassion, a moral compass and humanity and those are ALL the things you whites lack, down to the last one of you. And so what can I expect but what I see from you since I know that you are the most cold sludged (you don’t have blood) parasites ever to slither and crawl across this planet and that is why I don’t have a problem calling you debased rejects from who the hell knows where whatever I damn well please since nothing I could say could hurt your feelings because you must first have feelings in order for them to be hurt and you have none!

Black folks otherwise known as American descendants of slaves, I beg of you to stand in solidarity with one another through these tough times. I know how  tough it is. I know that things are bad for us. Hell! They’ve always been bad for us because just like I read earlier today, “when Amerikkka catches a cold, we catch pneumonia.” That shit is so goddamn true, it ain’t even funny. Please, I beseech you to hang in there. Hold tight to one another, help whenever you can and like everything else that’s been thrown at us, we have managed to get through it. We have always been the face of poverty, strife, suffering, homelessness, hunger, incarceration, drug addiction because the whites would have it no other way, but also remember that through it all, we are still here. Though many of us have fallen, many who paved the way for us to be here today, suffered hell on earth as well. We can but continue to struggle on in the face of hatred from an insane enemy the world will never have firsthand knowledge of as we do. This world’s people only get a taste of the sheer hell that these rabid beasts called, whites’ visit on us. We get the shit, up close and personal.

Finally, though we flounder and some of us will fall there will also be those of us who survive just like we always do and so stand proudly on that strike line. Refuse to be the face of coronavirus, if you can help it. Just like one of you said in the video, you are not the Red Cross, you are not a hero and so therefore, you are not obligated to stand somewhere on a warehouse floor and contract a killer virus just so that you can send some damn nail polish and toys to some parasite that wants you dead anyway. You are not expendable. You are not going to endanger your health and safety and that of your family members for multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos’ ass and those filthy ass whites and some dumb Black folks that helped him get to that status. He nor they are risking their lives on warehouse floors to get non-essential items out and neither should you. Tell them ALL to “Go straight to hell!” Those motherfuckers can just do without, we have to. And fuck all y’all motherfuckers out there that love all up and down on some damn Amazon and act like nothing existed before that goddamn bullshit. You’re all pathetic worms for jumping on the goddamn Amazon bandwagon. Too bad, logic and thought left the building and its place, we now have, apathy, complacency and laziness. More’s the goddamn pity.

This poem is for MY Black folks out there and you know who you are!

When You Get Tired….!

 

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. –


I wrote that poem, as you can see, in 2015 and today, the whole world is in the grips of a pandemic. Take this time to act because as confusion reigns and the government is trying to lock us all down, either our rights will never be regained from this,(the few we have) or we will forage a new path because a new path is what is needed. Look around you, the time is ripe. In multiple states, there are calls for rent strikes. In multiple states, there are calls for strikes, walk-outs, sit-outs and the momentum is building. People are sick of this shit! This is exactly what we needed to happen. Corporations get bailed out to the tune of billions while millions of mostly Black low wage workers are being handed a measly $1,200 if and when the IRS gets around to it. Also, those who are seniors/veterans/disabled are being told that they will have to file a tax return since many of them are so low income, there has been no need for them  to ever file a tax return. The military is fucked up to the point whereas the pentagon is refusing to admit to how many soldiers are actually down with coronavirus. In some states, the doors of jails are opening to release prisoners due to the spread of coronavirus.

Soon kkkops will be falling down with coronavirus. First responders are coming down with this. Even in this dead ass burg, it was announced that a firefighter has coronavirus. Pretty soon, homes and businesses on fire will be burning the fuck up because there’ll be no one to put them out. So, in other words, strike while the iron is hot! The uber rich ain’t circling the damn oceans in their super yachts for nothing or they are sitting in so-called luxury underground bunkers trying to wait this shit out. One goddamn flaming hypocritical piece of filthy shit billionaire had the gonads to post a pic of himself sailing on his yacht talking about, “What a way to escape the coronavirus.” The outcry over that was so damn loud, the filthy fucker took the pic down. They are laughing at us over the fact that they can just escape in their yachts and bunkers and mansions in the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts and leave us all to continue plodding along enriching their pockets as we risk contracting this virus while their shit gets bailed out. Fuck that!

If we fail to take this golden opportunity, we will never forage a new path because believe me, if they ever get a handle on this coronavirus, the shit is still not going to return to ‘normal’ because since the government thinks it has effectively locked us all down, (for our own good according to them) do you seriously think that they won’t up the ante if and when this virus is under control? Exactly!

 

What Was Achieved By All The Marching And Protesting By Dr. King And Others?

 

A few years ago, I wrote a poem about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and that poem elicited some comments that basically intimated that Dr. King and all the others who were part of the Civil Rights struggle actually made no gains, period. Now, we can argue over it all day and all night as to whether or not Dr. King and crew were successful in their endeavors, but one thing I would like you to do is to continue reading and decide for yourself. And I will give Dr. King one thing, he tried….. something. Whether or not it was the right thing? You tell me.

Of Dr. King, We Are Just So Proud!

Of Dr. King, we are just so proud.
That man, he always drew a crowd.
He paved the way to a much brighter day.
His dream is alive in every way.

Tamir Rice is here to tell his story.
And Sandra Bland has no need to ever worry,
that her life will be snuffed out in a cell,
because Dr. King, he rang the freedom bell.

Michael Brown is in college where he belongs.
Eric Garner is in church singing spiritual songs.
Walter Scott is still driving down the street.
Freddie Gray is sitting down to a meal to eat.

They all owe their lives to Dr. King.
He said, “Let freedom ring! Let freedom ring!”
On the mountaintop, he saw through space and time.
And yet, they killed him while he was in his prime.

We thank him for the debt he willingly paid,
and for all the sacrifices he and his family made.
But what we will never know for certain,
is how he would react when they finally raise the curtain,
on a show that is a tragedy of the darkest kind,
and where Blacks are still left so far behind.
This play will not have a happy ending,
for its ending is just like its beginning.

Behold, the face of slavery is still Black.
And as in days of old, we are under attack.
But a man had a dream for which he died.
Was it all for naught? I’ll let you decide!

I want you to take some time to reflect on the question I posed. “Was it all for naught?” If Black people have made so many gains in the decades since the Civil Rights Movement, then where are they? If we as a people have ‘moved’ forward, then where are the results? #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Give me a break! If we as a people had moved, there would be no need for the #BLACKLIVESMATTER Movement, now would there? The incarceration rate for Black men is off the charts. Millions of Black people live in deep poverty and a ridiculously high number of them are Black children. Millions of Black people are jobless, homeless and hungry and lack healthcare. But here we are, about to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. Celebrate what, I ask you? Tell me! What is there to celebrate? Staggering unemployment figures for Black youth and young adults? A homelessness epidemic? Mass incarceration? A school-to-prison pipeline? Out-of-control racist KKKops brutalizing and murdering unarmed Black people? Grand Juries that refuse to hand down indictments on racist thugs with badges? Gun violence in Black communities that are so impoverished as to be likened to 3rd world nation conditions?

And yet the ‘whites’ sit back and gleefully point the finger at what is going down in communities of color and point to how ‘violent they are when they know why. Whites know that this is all done by design, but it is so easy for them to live in their little ‘white bread’ world and hurl invectives and “I told you sos” when ‘whites’ are hell bent on gentrifying neighborhoods that once housed Black people because the suburbs was once the place to be if you were ‘white’. You sit somewhere with your holier-than-thou attitudes as though your shit don’t stink. You shamelessly and callously wish death on a group of people who were not responsible for being dragged to this hellhole you call, America. You strut around like proud peacocks, puffing your chests out and pretending that you’re not rotten filth when you are actually worse than that. And you have the unmitigated gall to pretend to acknowledge Dr. King with your phony ass displays of righteous indignation over the brutal treatment he received at the hands of you ‘whites’. You have the nerve to speak his name, to post his “I Have A Dream” speech as though you ever did a thing to help bring his dream to fruition. You’ve done everything possible to see to it that his dream was never realized and you are not fit to read his name, much less speak it. Why you have not burst into flames upon speaking his name is a complete and utter mystery to me because all that should be left of you is ‘white’ ash!

The above is what I also posted along with the poem and next, I am going to post a comment about this particular post and my response.

I’ve always looked at MLK with curious eye because my parent were both Black Panthers when I was growing up and Dr. King was almost forbidden in my house. I only saw him as an on bent knee begging white people for some table scraps and to please not hit us anymore. Though growing up, I’ve come to understand him a bit better and my only thought now about the man is, “praying has brought Black peoples nothing but dirty knees and empty pockets.”

shelbycourtland’s response:

HLJ, this isn’t so much about me revering Dr. King as it is about exposing the blatant and outrageous hypocrisy of the ‘whites’. They are the very ones who go on and on about Dr. King’s ‘dream’ when it is quite obvious that they gave not a damn for the man nor his dream. They spout useless rhetoric each and every time the holiday in his name comes around and that is all they do. And while they are doing this, the continuation of enslavement of Black people continues, the continuation of the Negro status as that of 3rd class ‘citizen’ continues. We aren’t even tolerated in this shithole. We are incarcerated and murdered and yet the ‘whites’ go on and on about how thankful Blacks should be since we are supposedly living in the ‘greatest nation on earth’. I fucking beg to differ with that assessment. Black people are a people without a country. We are enslaved in a system that is corrupt to its core and is filled with racist filth and we are expected to subjugate ourselves to criminals of the worst kind.

Dr. King was but a tool and he was used to put down any attempt at an insurrection, a rebellion or a revolution. The ‘whites’ condoned the actions of Dr. King because he was their namby-pamby house Negro; the same as Barack Obama and all the rest of the coon head sell-outs that bow and scrape to the ‘white’ motherfuckers and lick their boots clean while scrabbling for their table scraps at the same time. I am not giving any accolades to Dr. King because he was no revolutionary, he was a stooge. My poem is a sarcastic and antonymous portrayal of Dr. King. That is why I stated that because of Dr. King, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Michael Brown and Walter Scott and so many others have him to ‘thank’ for their lives. My point is to also show how far we have NOT come even with these so-called ‘movements’ that are merely fake assed props that are put in place to give Black people the illusion that they are actually doing something constructive to put a stop to the genocide of them by the ‘whites’. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Dr. King was just a figurehead, a prop; complete with suit and tie and bible. He was the ‘white’ mans house nigger and he did a fine of job of spreading the ‘white’ man’s propaganda of telling Black people to go about effecting change, all peaceful like. And when his usefulness was over, they fucking killed him just to show that a gun is aimed at us at ALL times because we are still their property! Fuck ’em!

I thank you for your comment.

And another great comment I thought I should add.

Good post. A lot of us at least have some idea of the real deal with him but too many don’t. They could start looking at what really happened with the march on Washington. They should ask themselves why do we only hear of one person from that era? I also think someone else wrote most of his famous speeches? While he stayed with mostly the same approach, Dr. King had doubts about a lot of what he had said earlier before his death.

How long will we keep marching? Those of us who are marching need to stop. When will we get to the “Dream”?

Is this another white Jesus thing? To be fair, there were black Christians who pretty much can’t be criticized but his approach seemed to be pulled straight from parts of the Bible that even those who believe in the BIble find hard to justify(I myself don’t believe in those passages or the books that contained them).

shelbycourtland’s response:

They can consider Dr. King to have been a figurehead, a Civil Rights leader, a scapegoat or what have you, but his sole purpose was to misdirect Black people’s anger away from fucking shit up but instead focused it on ‘peacefully’ marching down the goddamn street of every pothole filled city in this shithole. You don’t hear the ‘whites’ screaming and jumping up and down about setting aside a day in which to honor Malcolm X. And you won’t! Malcolm X was not going on and on about some ‘peaceful’ this and ‘peaceful’ that. He had some harsh words for those vile ‘white’ shits that have firmly planted their boot on our Black ass and refuse to lift it.

Malcolm X was a revolutionary who believed in violent resistance, he believed in getting things done ‘by any means necessary’. That is why he said, “It’s got to be the ballot or the bullet.” The ballot ain’t worked. And we ALL fucking know what it would take but the revolutionaries of the ’60s are either dead or still locked up and so we just dutifully continue with the useless ass marches and protests with signs dating back 50 years when not a goddamn thing is going to change simply because we are holding up a sign. What has #BLACKLIVESMATTER accomplished? Not a goddamn thing!

Thank you for your comment N.S.

As I have stated before, peruse this content to your heart’s content and then think about the state that Black Amerikkka is in today and you tell me, did ALL of that marching and protesting lead to ANY gains? And if so, how so? Where are they? Black people are more asleep today than than they were in the  60s thanks to dumb ass rap music, pretend beefs among so-called Black celebrities, Youtube madness, Twitter and Facebook mess and the like is endless. There is only moaning and whining coming from Black Amerikkka when Black people do eventually look up and realize how fucked we are that is until another distraction down the pike; another Black Panther Movie or Madea bullshit movie from the likes of Tyler Perry’s faggot ass! That shit, we don’t need. Hell! Damn near half of Black Amerikkka has no idea why today is being ‘celebrated’. Check this shit out!

Just skip to the five minute mark when she says, “The kids are out of school on Monday and we don’t even know why.” Also, her sixteen year old daughter did not even know why she is out of school today. Seriously???!!!! Too busy staring down at shit on a phone, most likely is the reason and the mother is just too dizzy for words.

This is what we have to work with these days and it is quite obvious, that we have nothing to work with. So you tell me, what was it all for? Cluelessness? Ignorance? Gluttony? Youtube channels? Twitter? Facebook?

Black Amerikkka is dealing with rabid racism, gentrification, income inequality, mass incarceration, a school-to-prison pipeline, disparities in healthcare, child poverty, a homeless epidemic, crime infested neighborhoods, drugs and gangs and prostitution that is out-of-control and the list of the like is endless and yet, here we are ‘celebrating’ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. For what? And in less than two weeks, we shall be expected to ‘celebrate ‘Black History Month’. Why? Because I have just described  ‘Black History’ up to present day and so what is there to celebrate? You tell me. I can’t wait.

 

 

“Black People, Please Take Your Children To See The New ‘Black Panther’ Movie For Black History Month!”

 

First of all, let me start off by saying that this movie would NOT be in theaters this month if it were based on the REAL Black Panthers.

The Black Panthers, also known as the Black Panther Party, was a political organization founded in 1966 by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale to challenge police brutality against the African American community. Dressed in black berets and black leather jackets, the Black Panthers organized armed citizen patrols of Oakland and other U.S. cities. At its peak in 1968, the Black Panther Party had roughly 2,000 members. The organization later declined as a result of internal tensions, deadly shootouts and FBI counterintelligence activities aimed at weakening the organization.

The Black Panthers were not solely focused on violence. One notable program was Free Breakfast for Children. They fed as many as 20,000 children in the 1968-69 school year. This was portrayed by detractors as a propaganda and recruitment tool, as the children were taught party messages and ideology during the meals.

As I re-read the above paragraphs, what strikes me is this: “The Black Panthers were not solely focused on violence.” I don’t even know what that means because in order to fight against racism, hate groups and a government that is hell bent on our annihilation, how could it be otherwise? Non-violence did not work because if it did, the man who history lauds as one of the most peace-loving men to have ever lived would have lived out his natural life instead of having been assassinated and we all know who I am referring to; Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. That man tried in every way possible to bring about change, peacefully and what did he get for his efforts, he got an assassin’s bullet, that’s what he got for drawing attention to the plight of slaves in America. That’s right, I said, “Slaves!” Because that is what we all are and aren’t we reminded of it every single day.

Slaves make up only 13% of the population count in America and yet in 2014, slaves represented 34% of the prison population in America and that number is worse today.

Nationwide, Black children represent 32% of children who are arrested, 42% of children who are detained, and 52% of children whose cases are judicially waived to criminal court.

For as long as the government has kept track, the economic statistics have shown a troubling racial gap. Black people are twice as likely as white people to be out of work and looking for a job. This fact was as true in 1954 as it is today.

The most recent report puts the white unemployment rate at around 4.5 percent. The black unemployment rate? About 8.8 percent.

But the economic picture for slaves is far worse than those statistics indicate. The unemployment rate only measures people who are both living at home and actively looking for a job.

What do you think would happen if the unemployment rate for Black people included those who are incarcerated? Add in those who are incarcerated and the unemployment figures for Black men jumps to 18.6%.

The Black Panthers knew that there was no peaceful way to go about effecting change because those who made up the Black Panthers, had themselves been victims of white oppression as we are today. We only have the illusion of freedom because at any given moment, each of us could be killed for no reason whatsoever and this has been playing out on city streets all across America. The slave patrols are decked out in blue and brown uniforms and have been given legal authority by the government of America to round us up whenever it pleases them to do so. Some of us are actually locked inside cages, but those of us who are not actually IN a cage are just as caged. Go into the ‘wrong’ neighborhood and find out how free you are. Protest the murder of another slave for too long and see how fast Gestapo pigs are called out to initiate a curfew to get you off the streets and locked in at night because when you burn down the white man’s means by which he makes a profit, you see just how much a slave, you still are. Get sick and walk in the doors of a hospital seeking help and they will show you that a sick slave is of no use to them, here, and here.

So yes, it is most important that you, as adult slaves, take your children to see this new Black Panther movie that is set to come out in theaters everywhere during this celebration of Slave History Month. Continue to promote the ideals behind slavery, racism, bigotry, Jim Crow, mass incarceration, income inequality, mass homelessness, gentrification, a school-to-prison pipeline, low educational attainment, mass poverty and government sanctioned murder by cop because you are indeed promoting all of the aforementioned especially seeing as how this movie is produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. And in order to understand how racist Walt Disney was is to read about Walt Disney.

The charge: Walt Disney was racist.
The evidence: These charges stem primarily from the use of racial stereotypes in Disney movies from the 40s: Dumbo’s black crows; Fantasia’s black servant centaurette; and Song of the South, a movie so offensive that the Disney company will no longer let it be seen in public. Then there is Walt Disney’s own behavior: Gabler cites a meeting in which Disney referred to the Snow White dwarves as a “nigger pile” and another in which he used the term “pickaninny.” The book notes that Disney anticipated the Song of the South controversy and attempted to make it less racist with a rewrite and meeting with the NAACP. The meeting never happened, and the movie was released anyway. There was also some controversy about the company’s unwillingness to hire minorities at Disneyland.

I see that I’ve got to change a few words, Slaves, take your “nigger piles,” your “pickanninies” to see Walt Disney’s Black Panther and while you’re there ask the theater to beg the Disney Corporation to re-release the movie, “Song of the South,” so that you can then return and view how happy and helpful slaves were to white folks when we were still needed to pick cotton, cook and clean for them and lie down with them upon demand.

This blog post is a direct result of another blog I read about how Black children should see this movie, “Black Panther” because it will show them that there were great Black kingdoms and it will show them that Black people can have super powers and everything will just be great. Seriously???!! So these Black pickanninies, once they’ve looked at this movie, will leave the theater thinking that they have the ability to fly to freedom, to escape poverty, to get into a leaky boat and head to some great Black kingdom, to understand that the reason their daddy, uncle and cousin is incarcerated is because they just refused to use their super powers to escape incarceration in a land where they will never be free, whether caged or not. Yes, give your pickanninies the illusion of “Black Panther,” produced and released by the same company that lovingly gave us “Song of the South.”

By viewing “Black Panther,” our pickanninies will celebrate Slave History Month like it should be celebrated. We will continue to enrich the coffers of our slave owners just as we’ve always done. We may no longer cook all Massa’s meals, we may no longer pick his cotton, we may no longer tend his fields from sunup to sundown, but by god, we shall surely give our hard-earned pennies to him during this month that he has set aside for us to celebrate his benevolence towards us by putting together a movie starring many who look like us and who are from a fake kingdom when the truth of the matter is this movie is not far off its mark because there truly was a kingdom and our ancestors resided there, but the Walt Disneys of this world saw an opportunity in your ancestors and so they took them, they took them to enrich themselves and you are a product of that enrichment and you are still enriching them today. Oh, I am pretty sure that it was just a major coincidence that “Black Panther” is coming out just in time for Black History Month, I am that naïve.

I am so very sorry that the strong Black people of yesteryear are no longer with us because the women of the Civil Rights Movement would not be taking their children to see a movie that will be released by the very same company that released “Song of the South.” Their children would take part in a boycott of this movie just as they took part in the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

The Montgomery Bus Boycott was a civil-rights protest during which African Americans refused to ride city buses in Montgomery, Alabama, to protest segregated seating. The boycott took place from December 5, 1955, to December 20, 1956, and is regarded as the first large-scale U.S. demonstration against segregation.

The Women’s Political Council (WPC), a group of black women working for civil rights, began circulating flyers calling for a boycott of the bus system on December 5, the day Parks would be tried in municipal court.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the Black women and men of his day, showed us all how to stick it to the white man; one word, BOYCOTT! And that is just something we have never been willing to continue because a movie is more important than mass incarceration, massive unemployment, income inequality, gentrification, mass homelessness, food insecurity, poverty, gangs, drugs and crime in ‘Black’ communities, inequality in health care, brain developmental problems in our children due to lead paint poisoning and yet, we are going to celebrate all of this by watching a movie because we just want a two-hour break from our reality and right afterwards, we will continue to piss and moan and whine about why we are still, slaves, and  treated as such. Ask your cousin Terrell if they are showing this movie in the prison he’s serving a 30-year sentence in for having on his person, a dime bag of weed. Ask your niece, Lakeisha if they’ll be showing “Black Panther” at the prison she is serving time at because she was arrested for prostitution and drug possession; drugs to feed her crack habit. Yeah! Ask them! And then go to the affluent suburbs of Atlanta and see how white affluent heroin addicts are treated. They’ll not be rubbing shoulders with Lakeisha since affluent white addicts that have engaged in prostitution to feed their habit are sent to rehab for as many times as it takes to get them back on the road to recovery. Meanwhile, Lakeisha sits inside a prison slaving away for pennies sewing shirts and pants for corporations because you see, she is inside a ‘For Profit Prison’ and when she goes to shower, some white male prison guard is watching her and then is making her perform sex acts on him and he is raping her. But by going to see “Black Panther,” we are doing her a world of good, just as we are also doing the Black man that’s doing time and submitting to homosexual acts, just as much good because when he gets out, his wife or girlfriend is going to understand what it means to have AIDS!

And don’t forget the popcorn as you sit back, relax and enjoy “Black Panther,” the movie.

Happy Black Slave History Month!

Black Lives Chatter!

black-lives-chatter

Black lives chatter!
What’s the matter?
No one is even listening.
Not even the Mad Hatter!

Black lives chatter!
What’s on your platter?
Another protest march
as more feet go pitter patter?

Black lives chatter!
Your message is even flatter
than Taylor Swift’s ass
pumped with yeast-filled batter.

Black lives chatter!
Your pockets are fatter,
but what have you accomplished
with your Black Lives Chatter?

I’ll tell you! Not a goddamn thing!

What the fuck has BlackLivesChatter accomplished? If someone can point out to me, just what the fuck BlackLivesChatter has accomplished, then by all means, please post it here! Because from where I sit, they got nothing!

AGAIN, for the Black folks who are either slow or otherwise dumb as all hell, the whites don’t give a shit about your life. You are unable to understand this? Why would George Soros give a shit about you? He is behind the explosion of that stupid shit, “BlackLivesChatter!” Who do you want to realize that Black lives matter? The ‘whites’? Get the fuck outta here with that stupid bullshit! They show you every single day that they don’t give a shit about you and yet you continuously shout to them that your life matters when it NEVER will matter to them! When you finally recognize that your life should matter to you and that other Black lives should matter to you, then and only then will you figure out just what the fuck you need to do to get your act together but until then, just continue acting out and hope that today’s whitey white ass that’s the progeny of what dragged your ancestors over here, will finally get an epiphany and lay off shooting you, enslaving you in the new prison slave pens and will stop gentrifying your neighborhoods. Yeah! And then, piss in the wind because like all the other shit that’s going down, it’s gonna blow back in your face anyway. Now open wide! In coming!

When You Get Tired…..

break free

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. –

“Welcome To America, Refugees From Syria!”

Tell that to the shits that are the reason why my Negro ass was born in Amerikkka!
Tell that to the shits that are the reason why my Negro ass was born in Amerikkka!

 

As a descendant of African slaves, I want to take this opportunity to welcome Syria’s refugees to America. May you have a better time of it here in America than my ancestors did. And include those of us who are descendants of slaves, as well. I want you to know that even though Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless than white families, we still hope that you fare better than we do. And even though Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population, Syrian refugees, you will promptly step right into housing and what is so great about that is that millions of people are in line waiting on affordable housing to open up. They have been on waiting lists so damn long that many have given up and are homeless. But we have housing available for you, refugees from Syria. Ain’t that sweet?! So, you come right on over here and get at the head of the line, in front of ALL the people that have been waiting for years for affordable housing. Come on over here and we shall roll out the red carpet for you because we have no refugees over here in America. We have no homelessness epidemic here. We have no homeless tent cities in Detroit and in California. We have no Skid Row in Los Angeles because Los Angeles is NOT struggling to manage rising homelessness beyond skid row, now is it?

Homelessness in Los Angeles has spread far beyond the area known as Skid Row. The number of people living on the streets has risen 12 percent in the past two years. And now some parts of the city are struggling to manage big homeless populations they’ve never seen before.

Nope! Skid Row is just a figment of my imagination just as it is a figment of my imagination that homeless people are living underneath Las Vegas. And many are war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and can you believe it? There are homeless children living in these tunnels as well. But refugees from Syria, they welcome you as well.

I want to state how very glad I am that Obama and the other war hawks and warmongers finally deemed it ‘humanitarian’ to host refugees from war-torn countries that were made so by said war hawks and warmongers. Never let it be said that a warmonger does not have a heart even while continuing to make refugees out of innocent men, women and children because these war hawks and warmongers like Obama and John ‘mad dog’ McCain and Lindsey Graham and every other piece of nasty and vile shit that IS the U.S. government is giving up their digs to host these Syrian refugees, are they not? Hell no! They are not! As American citizens, once again, we must overlook our own homeless refugees so that other refugees can come here and thrive and enjoy the good life that is Amerikkka. Never mind that almost two million Black people in Amerikkka call prison, home. Never mind the fact that child poverty in Amerikkka is at its highest point in 20 years, we have more than enough poverty to go around and then some, but we welcome you, refugees from Syria. We welcome you!

Over in Detroit, those poor, mostly Black folks have had their pensions cut thanks to corrupt city managers and criminal politicians, not to mention the massive water shut-offs that could affect 300,000 Detroit citizens.

Detroit’s Water War: a tap shut-off that could impact 300,000 people
“Every day, we’re shown that black lives, black quality of life, black communities, don’t matter,”

It is from this incredible web that a challenge to the water shut-offs is emerging. Community organizations have filed a human rights complaint to the United Nations, demanding Michigan state impose a moratorium on the shut-offs. UN experts have already responded critically.

Yes, refugees from Syria, the situation is so bad that citizens of Detroit appealed to the U.N. for help and for their efforts, they got nothing! But when you come to Amerikkka, you will more than likely have running water. You will not be homeless. Your pension will not get cut. Sweet, ain’t it? And the people of Baltimore, MD are experiencing the same thing and they are Black, also. The only thing that you will have to contend with is that pesky ‘terrorist’ thing. Yes, white Amerikkkans fear Muslims or anyone from the Middle East because their government via the media told them to because there are NO ‘homegrown’ terrorists in Amerikkka. When a racist kills a Black person, that is not terrorism. Racists burning down Black churches is not terrorism. Racists lynching Black people is not terrorism. Racists gunning down Black people as they sit in church is not terrorism. A terrorist has been defined as a ‘person or persons of Middle Eastern origin’. The white good ole boys that call themselves the Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Brotherhood, The Aryan Circle and the ‘White Brotherhood Alliance’ and so forth and so on are AGAIN, just good ole boyz having fun. They are not extremist groups. They are protectors of the empire, Amerikkka. They keep us niggaz in our place; these slave patrols alongside the Amerikkkan gestapo pigs. But nevertheless, you won’t have to deal with them, refugees from Syria because they are too busy busting caps all up in Black asses. If you stay out of the South, the Dakotas and Texas, you should be fine; living it up in your nice house with a two-car garage in a nice section of Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine; you know, all the states that have less than a 1% Black population count.

I hear that several of you have already settled in Connecticut. Good for you!

Syrian Refugees Come to the U.S. to Find a Place They Did Not Expect

“Why did they bring us if they didn’t want us?” said the 33 year-old husband and father, recalling his initial reaction through an Arabic interpreter. “We are coming to an open country.”
“A country with freedoms,” his wife, 23, said.

“We felt rejected,” her husband said. “We were depressed. How could that be the freedoms that we hear about?”

The couple were driven instead to this Connecticut city of about 130,000 people, joining seven other Syrian refugee families who have come since July. Integrated Refugee and Immigration Services, a nonprofit organization that works with Episcopal Migration Ministries, one of the nine aid agencies contracted with the federal government, had swiftly arranged for their arrival.

Ahhh..don’t feel rejected! At least not until your ass is lying on a slab in the morgue so full of bullet holes, you look like Swiss cheese! Don’t feel rejected until you are driving down the goddamn street, minding your business and a cop stops you and hassles you for no good reason and the next thing you know, you’re found hanging in a jail cell in Texas and word is, “You were depressed, grabbed a handy trash bag and commenced to committing suicide.” “Why oh why did I not put on my turn signal? If I had, I would not be placing this bag over my head and asphyxiating myself!”
Do not feel rejected until your children decide to play in a park with a toy gun and the cops arrive and within two seconds, they are lying dead on the ground. Do not feel rejected until you sell a dime bag of weed to a white guy and you get thirty years for that inside a FOR PROFIT PRISON. Do not feel rejected until the unemployment rate for Syrian refugees is in the double digits. Do not feel rejected until you get called, “Mud people,” attempt to take out a conventional loan to buy a house, have excellent credit, qualify for the conventional loan but get steered to a subprime mortgage loan and lose said home and end up homeless solely because you are Black skinned. And thanks Wells Fargo from all the Black people that are out on the street, thanks to your racist ass lending policies.

So, refugees from Syria, you should do just fine because you are not a descendant of African slaves and therefore, Amerikkka SHOULD welcome you! Please step over or on us. It is what everybody else does. Join the pig force and riddle us with bullets or arrest us on bullshit charges. It is what everybody else does. Discriminate against us when the government gives you enough money to open your own business. It is what everybody else does.

And for anybody that has the nerve to think that I wrote this because I hate Muslims, go fuck yourself! I am writing this because I have been volunteering for years too numerous to count and I am sick and goddamn tired of the hopelessness I have seen and continue to see when we don’t help the homeless refugees in Amerikkka; when we don’t help those who are persecuted here in Amerikkka because of the color of their skin. Where is the goddamn assistance for them? These people have been waiting for someone to recognize their plight and do something to help them. Where were the agencies that quickly came to the aid of these Syrian refugees; the ‘Episcopal Migration Ministries’ when it came to helping this man?

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A fire killed a homeless man Friday in his tent near the Mississippi riverfront north of downtown while he was struggling to keep warm with a propane heater.

A little before midnight on May 29, emergency personnel responded to a report of a burn victim under the Interstate 394 bridge at Dunwoody Avenue, according to police reports. Miller said police told him that a man walking nearby heard screaming and found his father on fire.

Or this man?

His father was taken to the hospital with burns on about 70 percent of his body, Miller said. The lower half of his body had to be amputated, and he was placed under heavy sedation. He was also put on life support.

Who helped him? His goddamn family didn’t even help him, but we have help for Syria’s refugees. Charity begins at home. Why overlook the people that are living like refugees right here in Amerikkka? What? Are these people less important or less worthy of help because they are not from Syria? These people are fighting a war every day, as well. It is called, “The War To Survive!” And it is a war! Ask any homeless person. Ask any Black person that has buried a loved one because of pure, unadulterated racism. Ask the poor in Detroit who are without running water. Ask the poor in Baltimore who are also without running water. Ask the Black men and women who are sitting inside a FOR PROFIT PRISON for selling a dime bag of weed. Ask the unarmed Black men, women and children who have been killed for no reason; no probable cause. Ask them about being refugees in a country that never accepted them as human beings, much less as citizens that enjoyed rights. Ask Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Jordan Baker, D’Andre Berghardt Jr., Tanisha Anderson, Rumain Brisbon, McKenzie Cochran, John Crawford, Denzell Curnell, Michelle Cusseaux, Ezell Ford, Akai Gurley, Dontre Hamilton, Jason Harrison, Darrien Hunt, Marquise Jones, Tamir Rice, Ernest Satterwhite, Yvette Smith, Cameron Tillman, Victor White III, Levar Jones, Vernicia Woodard, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, and the goddamn list is endless. I had to stop somewhere but the racist ass pigs in blue or brown sure as hell don’t. But you won’t have to worry about this happening to YOU, Syrian refugees. Your skin does not have OUR deep melanin!

So, don’t bellyache about you coming to Amerikkka and not receiving the kind of welcome you were expecting. Be thankful for what you can get because all of those Black people named in the aforementioned paragraph did not get the opportunity to choose to come to Amerikkka thanks to these filthy white asses over here fucking up their country, their ancestors were kidnapped and dragged over here to become slaves and they and myself are unwanted. But you’ll fare better than they ever did. Count on it Syrian refugees!

Oh, and lest I forget, the Indians would also like to welcome the refugees from Syria because they too, are doing so great! You see, the plight of the Indigenous Peoples of America is so bad that the United Nations sent a special rapporteur, S. James Anaya to lead an inquiry, the first of its kind. What he found was a range of social ills, high rates of poverty, alcoholism, domestic violence and low educational attainment.

According to S. James Anaya, “these are a product of what’s been referred to as intergenerational trauma spanning decades, really centuries, since the founding of the country and before.”

The Indians would just love for some more folks to illegally enter this country that by rights, should be theirs, but that pesky little problem was solved by a little small pox, firewater, beads and genocide by guess who? The same shits that have turned Syria into a bombed-out shell of a country with people fleeing left and right; refugees of course. Whitey white ass just cannot contain his thirst for ALL things material, nor can he contain his blood lust. It must be sated. Indian blood has been spilled by the ton and that did not stop the white’s thirst for blood. The blood of Negro or Black people has been spilled by the ton and AGAIN, this has done nothing to stop the white man’s thirst for blood. Nothing can stop it! This is why you are refugees; people of Syria, and this is also why you are wondering why you are being rejected by the very same white filth that rendered you, homeless. Let’s see how you fare here at ground zero with us Negroes and  Indians! Yeah! Read the sign to see how well WE are faring here in AmeriKKKa!

 

Welcome to Amerikkka! Home of the stupid, the racist and the ignorant! And last but not least, the killers!
