I Stand Accused!

So, because I put the truth out here and back the truth up with briefcases of receipts, I am perceived as the problem. I have been taken behind the woodshed and been given a piece of a Black man’s mind, by way of email.

To: Shelby Courtland
Shelby,
I hope this afternoon bids you well.
I wanted to speak with you privately about something.  I’ve noticed the past couple of posts you made were about black men not caring about black women.
I wanted to ask, do you consider brother like myself, who put it all on the line to combat and fight against systematic white supremacy, in that category?  Your pieces seem to make a sweeping assessment, based on coons and sell-outs that have made it their life’s mission to chase interracial sex over the survival of their people.
I only ask because I have great respect for you and your point-of-view.
I didn’t want to bring this up in your comment section because I know white people follow you–as they do me–and the get off on black male bashing as a form of porn, so I just wanted to pull you to the side and address you in a private setting.
Looking forward to hearing from you, sister.
Much Respect,

 

So consider me to have been “pulled to the side” and “told off” for “black male bashing.”

 

First of all, the last few blogs of mine have contained what? Lies? Nawww, not a one. Those blogs were truth, absolute truth and nothing but the truth. I have often said on this very blog that if the shit ain’t right, I don’t give a damn who it’s about, I’m going to put it out there and lift the lid off of stinking, maggot coated shit because by doing so, exposing shit to the light of day enables everyone to get a whiff and smell the shit for what it is. I am not about to tread lightly in here if shit is fucked up just because someone believes that some nasty, no account whites will wet themselves over what I write. I have spared NO ONE! Whites are not up in here just a smiling and a grinning over what I write about their pasty asses and you know this. Whites ain’t cracking a goddamn smile when they’re all up in here and you know this. I have thrown my own goddamn mama under the bus because she damn well deserved it and so if anybody thinks that I would have a problem calling shit out when I see it, you must have been dropped on your damn head, several times. And if a Black man has a problem with what I write, I am pretty sure ‘Becky’ will soothe your ‘hurt’ feelings. But whether ‘Becky’ does or not, does not negate the truth of what I say. And I am going to keep saying it. I’m not asking you to ‘like’ shit!

Second of all, motherfucker I never contacted you! You posted a comment to my blog asking to have a ‘private’ word with me about something other than my supposed “Black male bashing.”

 

 

The Stormy Poet In reply to Shelby Courtland
Shelby,

Is there an e-mail address you check frequently? I would like to speak to you privately if that is a possibility.

 

 

I used the email address associated with your WordPress account and this is what I originally sent to you.

Dear T.S.P.,
This is the email address that I use. If you have ever sent me anything via this email address and I have not responded, it is because I did not know that it was from you.
Also, I have ordered some equipment to start doing a podcast and it should arrive, at the latest, on Monday because I am tired of just trying to get what needs to be got out, via WordPress. Shit needs saying and doing and I’m going to take this even further. The time is ripe for it.
Sincerely,
Shelby
To which you responded:
Sister,

It is good to hear from you.  I hope your day has been positive and productive thus far, truly.

I just wanted to reach out to you and make sure I had a good e-mail for you just in case you and I needed to get in contact with one another if, heaven forbid, they take down my website or yours. They’ve been doing a lot of censoring to my material as of late.  In any case, I normally operate out of my tsp@TheStormyPoet.com address, but Mail Chimp has been being an ass lately. When I send stuff to people it goes to their spam folder, so this address is my back up.


In any case, I’m thrilled to hear you’re gravitating over to the podcast realm.  I, personally, think WordPress couldn’t handle you lol.  You’re too savage to be contained to just that platform lol, and I mean that in a good way.  
 
I’ve been doing the podcast thing for a minute, and, if you have any questions about anything, feel free to hit me with them.  I’m more than happy to share what I do know, sister.

Whenever you get your platform up and running, I would love to chop it up with you on your program.  I’ve always wanted to verbally share thoughts and ideas with you.  I believe there are a lot of black people out there who would benefit from out dialogue.  

 
That being said, feel free to hit me up about anything.  I’m always down to help any way I can. I’m wishing you continued success, sister, and may your day be filled with positive vibes.  
One Love & One Justice,
And my response:
T.S.P.,
Thank you so much for your offer of assistance, I am going to need some since I will have no idea what I’m doing. It will be, trial and error.
And you are right, I do believe that WordPress will more than likely shut me down. I am quite surprised that I’ve lasted this long on that site. I’m probably not a threat to them since I only have 515 followers. If I had more than that, I would have been shut down, but I am not perceived as a  threat yet. And you know my content will kick anybody’s ass, eventually because I don’t play. If I see some wrong mess, I’m calling it out and I don’t care if it’s about ADOS acting crazy or the white parasites or those nasty, racist Asians; everybody gets thrown under the bus if I see some mess that needs calling out.
It was nice to hear from, especially since it has been awhile. I miss your ‘kick ass’ posts because I damn near re-blogged them all. But I guess since you’ve been working on your podcast, you’ve not had to to do WordPress as well.
I also look forward to, hopefully, working with you on getting the truth out there and waking our folks the hell up!
Don’t be a stranger!
Shelby
Now, as you can see, even in my email to TheStormyPoet, I alluded to the fact that “you know my content will kick anybody’s ass, eventually because I don’t play. If I see some wrong mess, I’m calling it out and I don’t care if it’s about ADOS acting crazy or the white parasites or those nasty, racist Asians; everybody gets thrown under the bus if I see some mess that needs calling out.”
So what the fuck am I doing that needs someone to “pull me to the side” over? This is MY blog. If a motherfucker don’t like what they see on MY goddamn blog, then just like I’ve said many times before, get the fuck to steppin’! In fact, I made a whole blog on this subject and so this is for the motherfuckers in the back row who didn’t hear me the FIRST GODDAMN TIME!

Never Regret What You Stand For!

 

 

Friendships may come and friendships may go.
But at the end of the day, it is all about you.
Because no matter what people say,
to thine own self be true.

Never regret what you stand for.
And if you find yourself, standing alone,
hold your head high and don’t apologize
for staying true to your principles and for what you don’t condone.

You will not be liked by one and all.
And that is not why you are here.
For no one can live your life for you.
And those you thought were friends will somehow disappear.

So who can you turn to
when your friends have feet of clay?
You’re all that you need
to keep those wolves at bay!

To those of you who are second guessing yourself because you feel the need to conform to the dictates of a fucked up society, don’t! If it is against what you stand for, then stand alone, if you have to. You are not here to please everyone and that can never happen anyway. So please yourself. If what you believe in your heart to be true, then go with it and don’t let anyone make you doubt yourself.

So-called friends will come and go. Hell! Even husbands and wives can come and go, so if that doesn’t tell you that nothing is lasting and that you cannot please everyone, not even the ones who have promised to love and honor and cherish you through good and bad times, then I don’t know what to tell you.  And though people may attempt to beat you down and make you feel bad over your beliefs, pay them no heed because at the end of the day, they must answer to their conscience and you must answer to yours.

I know I am not here to please everyone and I don’t even try. There are many who disagree with my stance on different issues and that’s fine but when I know in my heart that something goes against my principles, I’m having none of it.

And if you come up in here with some crazy mess, know this, I am going to shut it down. You don’t live my life and I don’t live yours. So, don’t even go there with me. I am not the one. Now then, I hope we understand each other. If you cannot put up with what you see in here, then by all means, keep it moving. But I am past fed up with some who think that they are going to come all up in here and takeover. Ain’t happening. If you didn’t know, now you know!

Most of you have your own blogs and if you want to argue against my stance so bad, take it up on your own blog. But I am all about ‘Blackness’, not ‘Blackish’, but ‘Blackness’. Everything else is secondary. So take your cross-eyed mess onto your own blog. Don’t bring it up in here. You are not going to turn my blog into a 3-ring circus. I am respectful when I comment on other peoples blogs and when I see something that I disagree with, rather than get bent out-of-shape, I leave it alone, but I am disrespected on my own goddamn blog and it is not going to continue happening. Am I making myself clear? Because if not, there will be some changes going on all up in here; quick, fast and in a damn hurry!

And so for ANYONE who thinks that they are going to “PULL ME TO THE SIDE!!!!” are you fucking serious? You don’t ‘pull me’ NO goddamn where! You better check yourself! Motherfucker, you don’t pay my goddamn bills and so who the fuck do you think you are??!!! I don’t give a shit for your dead ass podcast or your dead ass blog!

So yeah! Here we have YET ANOTHER PIECE OF SHIT BLACK MAN, who is going to “PULL A BLACK WOMAN TO THE SIDE” for stating the goddamn truth! Just because you don’t like the truth, don’t make it any less, the truth! Get the fuck over it! Deal with it or not, but don’t come here with your bullshit because I don’t hide shit. I PUBLICLY state what the hell’s going down. I don’t have to make Black men look bad; you’re doing a FINE ass job of that ALL on your damn own! If you ain’t about shit, that ain’t on me, that shit’s on you motherfuckers! I was NOT put on this planet to cape for you worthless Black assed motherfuckers when you ain’t worth it! And I will continue to expose the shit you shameless no account, worthless, Black assed motherfuckers do! Count on that! You don’t want to fuck with me because I am most definitely NOT the one! If you didn’t know, now you know!

Fuck YOU!

 

Do You Care About Us? — Cleo Blue

For years I have had the same reoccurring nightmare. There is a numb, burning feeling in my throat. I want to scream at the top of my lungs, yet every time I open my mouth, nothing comes out. I’m watching as women with skin like mine cry out for help before being silenced, but I can’t move, I can’t help them. […]

via Do You Care About Us? — Cleo Blue

More from the article:

When you think about the Black Lives Matter movement, how many male victims come to mind? Now how many females? If you have less females than males it doesn’t mean that women have less cases, it just means we are not spoken about as much. In this fight for black lives, I challenge you to educate yourself on the black women who have lost their lives and protect the ones who are still alive.

Below I have listed the names of just some of the women whose names should constantly be said and always be remembered.

I will answer the question of “Do You Care About Us?”

The answer is “NO!”

All the emphasis gets placed on the need to protest and march when Black men get themselves murdered by the police, but when Black women get murdered by the police, the same outpouring of outrage never materializes.

I’m going to go here just for the sake of argument, and you can get mad all you want, I don’t care, but if you look up the information on who had rap sheets, ten miles long, chances are, Black men who got themselves murdered by the police will have one, but the Black female victims who have been murdered by the police will not. That is not to say that having a rap sheet, ten miles long is an excuse for the police to murder Black men with impunity, but if there was ever a more deserving victim of outrage and protest, it would be a Black woman. Black women are the victims of ‘murdered by police’ and nine times out of ten, we don’t even have a record, but yet, we will go to the front of every single protest line and screech and wail and holler, “No Justice! No Peace! Stop the racist police!,” in defense of Black men, who more than likely owe us back child support.

And yes, I am going to go here. Let’s take George Floyd, for instance, and even though I stated that I no longer wanted to speak on him, for this, I will make an exception.

George Floyd was a thug. There ain’t no way around that and so get over it! The man had a rap sheet, ten miles long and had been incarcerated for armed robbery. George Floyd and another man broke into a woman’s house. George Floyd put a gun to a pregnant woman’s stomach and demanded drugs. A PREGNANT WOMAN!

FINAL CONVERSATION George Floyd’s grieving girlfriend Courteney Ross reveals her final words to him were ‘I love you’

Floyd served a five-year sentence for aggravated assault after an armed robbery in 2007, which saw him break into a woman’s home, put a gun to her stomach and comb her house for drugs with another man. According to a police report, they took jewelry and the woman’s cellphone.

All of that has been forgotten because Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck for almost 10 minutes, thus snuffing the life out of him. But George Floyd had long since abandoned the mother of his 6-year old daughter, along with his 6-year old daughter for this!

George Floyd ditched his daughter for ‘Becky’. And if anyone thinks that I would have taken to the streets in protest on behalf of George Floyd, think again. He wanted to open up a restaurant called, “Convict Kitchen” with this! Let this white bitch protest for his dead sell-out ass.

Now, I come to Breonna Taylor:

Breonna Taylor
Breonna Taylor, her life mattered. All Black Lives Matter, including the lives of Black women! We are no less than Black men and you’d better believe it! We are why your Black male asses are getting some kind of justice while we get none!

Meanwhile, not a peep was heard across Amerikkka outside of Louisville, KY when Breonna Taylor, 26, was shot 8 times and murdered in her home by the police who were in the wrong apartment since the suspect that they were after had already been apprehended. Breonna’s boyfriend shot back in self defense, trying to protect Breonna, himself and his home from invaders and was jailed for doing so. It was only after public outcry, when he was released.

Breonna Taylor was an EMT. She was on the frontlines of a pandemic, carting COVID-19 patients to the hospital while at the same time, she was studying for a degree in nursing. She was trying to help people; her people. She had never been arrested, nor had she been in any trouble with the law in her short life. But we want to fuck shit up over a convicted felon who was sleeping with the enemy, and yet remain stubbornly silent over what happened to Breonna Taylor, outside of Louisville, KY, that is.

If the folks in this shithole had the effrontery to go the fuck off, then folks should have went the fuck off over the senseless murder of Breonna Taylor. But her mother had to appear on “Good Morning America” to ask why was there no one remembering that her daughter’s life mattered. Breonna’s mother had to sit up on “Good Morning America” and wonder why that beautiful soul; that beautiful Black woman, did not garner any outpouring of outrage and anger and calls to de-fund the police and disband the police and some more shit over the senseless murder of her daughter.

Why does it seem that Black women don’t matter? We are dying in childbirth and that does not matter. We are left high and dry when our men leave us with a baby in our belly and he’s off to the next and that does not matter. We are the ones who are told how bad we are for heading to Planned Parenthood because we are damned if we do and damned if we don’t. We are perceived as free loading, Cadillac driving welfare queens by some piece of shit dead president when whites are statistically, the faces of welfare. Black women ALWAYS get treated like shit!

Black women, I am begging you, don’t continue to cape for these no account Black men who garner all of the support, tears, protests, marches and some more shit when they don’t care what happens to us. The Black man is an emasculated, self hating bitch that’s trying to cuddle up with a ‘Becky’. They don’t deserve our respect, tears, tired, aching feet or our support. We deserve better than what we have been getting from Black men who could not care less what we do FOR them; that is quite obvious.

I can honestly state, that the reason I don’t date to this day is because I got sick and damned tired of Black men beating my ass six ways to Sunday. I got sick of it! I got sick and tired of paying the bills while my Black ex-husband played the goddamn lottery, played cards for money and then needed me to give his ass gas money to get to work. I got tired of that shit and vowed that I would never mess with another Black man. I stepped back on my own promise and tried it again, this time, dated a Black man, only to get mistreated again. I’m done. I’m through. Stick a goddamn fork in me. Am I down with the swirl? Hell no! Nor am I gay. I’m fine all on my own and I would have it no other way! But I will not tolerate getting my ass beat or being disrespected by a piece of shit Black man. That’s not going to happen. And so hell no! I will never march down the goddamn street in defense of your Black ass when I know you, Black man! And you can call me ‘hating’ if you want, I don’t give a damn and you can bank on that!

I sincerely hope that no other Black woman gets murdered by police, but if she does, then and only then, will I even bother posting about it. Black men, as far as I am concerned, you are on your own. Until you wake up and recognize that Black women matter, your ass won’t matter to me! And fucking know I mean that. Now come on up in here with some bullshit about this here post and I will be more than happy to mop the cyber floor with your self hating, punk ass bitch, Becky loving ass! And you know, I don’t play!
