“Welcome To OUR World!”

 

I cannot wait to see how this is going to play out and so far, hardly a word from the police. But of course, they are wondering just how they are going to play out the usual, “I feared for my life!” scenario. I mean, the latest ‘victim’ of an unlawful police killing of an unarmed citizen just happens to be ‘white’ and even though she was from the ‘land-down-under’, she don’t look at all Aborigine to me.

Australians, bride-to-be’s dad rocked by Minneapolis police shooting

Australians expressed dismay and a father pleaded for “the light of justice” Tuesday as investigators in Minneapolis tried to determine why a city police officer fatally shot an Australian woman who had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault.

Justine Damond, 40, was a meditation instructor who moved to the U.S. in 2015 to be with fiance Don Damond. She was shot just before midnight Saturday in an alley outside her home, unarmed and in her pajamas.

“We thought yesterday was our worst nightmare, but we awoke to the ugly truth and it hurt even more,” her father, John Ruszczyk said Tuesday local time in Sydney.

And add insult to injury and it looks like the ‘victim’ is the one who called the police in the first place and was actually speaking with them when she was shot dead and of course, there is no body cam footage, nor is there dash cam footage even though citizens fought hard for body cams and have been and are paying for them to be used, but for some strange reason, many are found to be turned off at the most inauspicious of times.

But wait! The plot thickens!

Minneapolis cop who shot Australian woman during call was named in recent lawsuit, faced two open complaints

The Minneapolis cop who fatally shot an Australian woman during a police call was celebrated as one of the department’s few Somali-American officers, but had two open complaints and named in a recent lawsuit.

Mohamed Noor fired at Justine Damond on Saturday night while she was speaking to the officer’s partner.

Say it ain’t so! ‘Miss Pure White As Snow Australia’ was gunned down in ‘cold’ blood by a refugee from Somalia; a decorated Somali-American police officer, who has by the way, been praised most enthusiastically by Minneapolis Mayor, Betsy Hodges.

“I want to take a moment to recognize Officer Mohamed Noor, the newest Somali officer in the Minneapolis Police Department,” Mayor Betsy Hodges wrote in a Facebook post last year. “Officer Noor has been assigned to the 5th Precinct, where his arrival has been highly celebrated, particularly by the Somali community in and around Karmel Mall.”

And the article goes on to state that Noor’s partner in the patrol car was absolutely STUNNED when Noor opened fire on ‘Miss Pure White As Snow Australia’; just completely, devastatingly STUNNED, he was, to be sure!

What police officer was stunned when Eric Garner was choked to death by another officer on video on a New York Street for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes? What police officer was stunned by his partner shooting and killing twelve-year old Tamir Rice only seconds after pulling up on that child while he was playing with a toy gun in a park? What officer was stunned when a fellow police officer shot and killed John Crawford in a Wal-Mart store for holding a toy gun? What police officer was reportedly stunned when witnessing the murder of 23-year old unarmed Amadou Diallo, an immigrant from New Guinea who was shot 41 times by four New York cops? But now, it is time for a fellow officer to be absolutely, appallingly STUNNED over the shooting and killing of an unarmed ‘white’ woman from Australia by his partner, a fellow cop. Cops are shooting citizens every single day and are killing them for no good reason and not one time have I heard that even one cop was STUNNED by the actions of another. All we hear is how the cops are always in the right because they “FEARED FOR THEIR LIVES!” To hell with our lives, they fear for theirs. So why the fuck did they sign up to be police officers in the first damn place if they were just going to be namby-pamby piss their pants mommas boys and girls every single damn time they shot somebody to death who happened either to be unarmed or to be legally armed as was the case with Philando Castile? If you lousy ass shit your pants wimps are so goddamn fearful for your lives, then don’t sign the fuck up to be cops! That’ll stop that shit right there! You can’t have it both ways; grab a gun, shoot some unarmed or lawfully armed, law abiding citizen and then claim “you feared for your life” to get yourself off the hook every single time you kill someone who is unarmed and who posed no goddamn threat to you whatsoever! Thus far, you have gotten clean away with this scenario because it’s been mostly Black people that you’ve dished this shit out to, but let’s see you slither your way out of this one. The ‘whites’ ain’t gonna take kindly to you filling their asses with lead. They don’t give a damn about what you do to Black folks, but goddamn it, enough is enough when you start that shit up with ‘Miss Goldilocks’ and her ilk! Let’s see how far that “I feared for my life!” bullshit gets you THIS time! I can’t wait for it!

But the fat is in the fire now because it ain’t some no-account Black thug with a criminal record that’s got himself shot dead by cops. The shit is going to hit the fan now because it ain’t just some no-account twelve-year old Black boy that’s got himself murdered by wimp-assed cops. The world has got to stop turning because now, ‘Miss Pure White As Snow Australia’, who was soon to be married and who had only three years ago arrived on these shores and who was just a saint and all that comes with it, has been shot dead by those murderers in blue and brown. What’s the story gonna be, eh? What lies will come out? And how much will the other loathsome cops stick up for this Somali-born cop that shot ‘Miss Goldilocks’? We’ll soon see how thick that ‘blue wall’ is, won’t we? We’ll soon see at what lengths the Minneapolis police department will go to protect ‘one of their own’. I can’t wait for the unfolding of this event.

Hey! White folks! You taking note of this? How do you feel now? She looks like you! And they shot her in stone ‘cold blood’. Are you going to wait to see if she had a ‘rap sheet’? Are you going to say, “Oh well, another thug shot dead,” if it turns out that she was ticketed for jay-walking and/or littering continuously? This shit is just too horrific for words, now ain’t it? What the hell? They can’t shoot you, now can they? Uh, yes, cop  Mohamed Noor did! So, all I can say to that is “WELCOME TO OUR WORLD!” Ain’t it great to be in America where we are protected from the common criminals by those great folks in blue and brown uniforms? Salute our heroes in blue and brown today, why doncha! Thank them for filling your ass with lead! Thank them for getting out of any wrong doing on their part by simply saying, “I feared for MY life!” Never mind Tamir Rice’s life! Never mind Eric Garner’s life! Never mind Freddie Gray’s life! Never mind Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley-Jones ‘ life! Never mind John Crawford’s life! What are you going to do now that it’s YOUR life they’re snuffing out?

Yessiree! “WELCOME TO OUR WORLD!”

Don’t Slam Hillary, Slam Your Mother….

mothers-of-the-movement

 

 

….she is the one who endorsed Hillary Clinton. She is the one who stood up on the stage at the DNC, along with the other coon head sell-outs and endorsed filth, filth that is the reason why Black people are usually the victims of police brutality. So, don’t slam Hillary Clinton for staying true to being a lying warmonger, slam your mother for backing a known racist piece of filth and for selling out your father for ’30 pieces of silver’ and a few minutes on a stage.

Daughter of Eric Garner slams Clinton campaign over emails about father’s death

The Hillary Clinton campaign came under fire from Erica Garner on Thursday, the daughter of Eric Garner who was killed by a police officer in New York City, after the latest batch of emails released by WikiLeaks revealed how the Democratic presidential nominee talked about her father’s death.

“I know we have Erica Garner issues but we don’t want to mention Eric at all? I can see her coming after us for leaving him out of the piece,” Clinton press secretary Nick Merrill wrote in an email.

Another aide Maya Harris chimed in saying, “Eric Garner not included because not killed by gun violence.”

So, this just goes to show that all who were on that stage at the DNC were merely props. This shit was all thought out beforehand and as usual, dumb ass Black people will dutifully get in line and allow racist filth to continue to use them for their fucked up agendas. We never, ever fucking learn. You know what? To hell with all y’all Black motherfuckers! Here I am breaking my goddamn neck and back trying to do something about goddamn gentrification encroaching all over the city I live in when you punk ass bitches are doing nothing but making it more and more difficult for me and others to try and do a goddamn thing about your fucked up ass plight. Fuck all y’all motherfuckers AGAIN! I’m fucking done! Stick a goddamn fork in me. I can fucking use my goddamn money for my own Black ass! To hell with you!

This just takes the goddamn cake! You stupid fuckers can’t see the writing on the wall? You need someone to tell you how to blow your own goddamn nose and I’m going to fucking break my neck trying to help some motherfuckers that can’t even think for themselves? Hell no! The goddamn buck stops here! You’re all fucking sell-outs!

I have been saying over and over that Black people continue to do some crazy ass shit by doing the same things and expecting different results. You’re going to stand behind that piece of racist filth that calls itself Hillary Clinton, whose husband, by the way, is the reason why so many Black men and women are cooling their heels in ‘for profit’ prisons. Those two scum sucking bottom feeders are the reasons why so many Black children are growing up in single-parent households. And you can’t fucking see that? You’ve got to wait until Wikileaks publishes leaked emails to get a clue about what you should already know! We have been slaves in this shithole for hundreds of years and still, you don’t know that nothing’s changed? How the hell are you free? And who the hell freed you? Bill Clinton? Hillary Clinton? Her husband’s policies, AGAIN, are the reasons why so many Black people are slaving away in ‘for profit’ prisons on bullshit drug charges thanks to Bill Clinton’s ‘three strikes’ law among other laws that were placed on the books by Bill Clinton’s racist policies that were meant to enslave Black people in the new slave pens. And what do you do when those racists in uniform kill your ‘loved’ one? Why, you stroll down the streets with a lame ass protest sign that you dusted off from the 1960s and beg them to stop choking us to death, shooting us to death and hanging us. Then some of you, like Eric Garner’s family, will take a multi-million dollar payout to shut up about his murder and the status quo continues.

Oh, but then, you are so shocked when emails come to light exposing the fact that Hillary Clinton is as fake with her displays of support for the plight of Black people as her husband is. You overlook a lot for ’30 pieces of silver’. You sell out your own people and stand somewhere, smiling and endorsing racist filth and then get bent out of shape when someone exposes to the world just how contemptible your mother is for being a coon head sell-out. So no, Erica Garner, don’t slam Hillary Clinton for staying true to who she is, slam your own goddamn mother for condoning what that racist piece of filth set into motion, decades ago; her and her philandering husband, Bill. Slam Sandra Bland’s mother Jordan Davis’s mother, Trayvon Martin’s mother, Michael Brown’s mother, Dontre Hamilton’s mother, Hadiya Pendleton’s mother, Blair Holt’s mother and Oscar Grant’s mother for taking to the stage at the Democratic National Convention and endorsing that warmongering racist piece of filth, Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton is going to be our next president and of that I am certain of without a shadow of a doubt because that is what the ‘elites’ want for why else is that war whore not in prison for all the crimes its committed? Why put something like Donald Trump and Mike Pence up against Hillary Clinton? It is to make people so disgusted over Trump and Pence that they’d vote for Hillary Clinton even though they loathe and despise that hag! And for anyone who thinks that police brutality is going to cease when Hillary Clinton descends to the presidency, you need to wake the fuck up and smell the stench of death because you will continue, just as you are now, to march down the goddamn street holding your lame ass protest signs or waving your hands in the air screaming, “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” And I guess you forgot, that to Hillary Clinton, Black people are super predators that need to be brought to heel and that is exactly what is going down. “Heel motherfuckers! Heel!”

Eric Garner’s mother endorses Hillary Clinton

Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr, endorsed Hillary Clinton on Thursday in an email to campaign supporters, labeling Clinton the “only candidate right now who’s talking about how we can be strategic in trying to” address police brutality.

Carr joins a host of mothers whose children were killed in incidents with law enforcement and are part of a broader campaign strategy to solidify African-American voters who are pushing for an end to police brutality.
“So yeah! Heel motherfuckers, heel!”

When You Get Goddamn Tired…..!

break the chains

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We Is Dead Meat To Them!

special on dark meat1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Black History

Black History Month

Dragged from your native land,
on a floating barge of death;
you built paradise for a thief
who then plundered all the wealth.

Your name was not your own.
You would never again be free.
To know such hate from them,
as they hang you from a tree.

They say that slavery’s over.
Go forth and earn your keep.
And though you labor long,
you’re valued much too cheap.

You were denied so many rights.
And the vote was not for you.
Though many marched and died,
the court bid that adieu.

Some think you’ve made great strides
in the face of all that’s wrong.
Yet they herd you into prison,
because they hate that you are strong.

Be wary of their smiles,
for they mean you so much harm.
If you’ve a talent, they’ll exploit it.
All over you, they’ll swarm.

They’ll use you and then kill you.
You’re nothing but a thing,
and when your candle’s burned
you’ll feel ole Massa’s sting.

Don’t ever let your guard down,
and it doesn’t pay to trust.
Shield from them any weakness.
Always show them your disgust.

Black history holds no fame.
And it certainly gets no cheer.
Times have never changed.
They still look at you and jeer!

Although this one is pretty much self-explanatory, I will just add that though there are a few, and I do mean few stories about progress that some Negroes have made, the fact remains that this is no time to be celebrating because the majority of us are fucked up and just a glance around will make that fact, quite obvious.

I was pretty much torn over what to post about this month and I see no reason to attempt to put together some feel good shit because nothing ‘feels’ good to me, not at all. Too much nasty shit has gone down and the murder of Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Renisha McBride, Aiyana Jones, Sandra Bland, Walter Scott, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and there are so many others are still too raw for me, emotionally speaking, to post any uplifting stories about Negro history during what the ‘whites’ have designated, “Black History Month.”

I will leave it up to others to showcase the ‘feel good’ shit of Negro history and if any inspiration should strike me, you’ll be the second to know.

Of Dr. King, We Are Just So Proud!

Dr Martin Luther King Jr1

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 am posting this a little early because 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 ‘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 only thing I can say to the ‘whites’ is this, “If it were up to me…if it were up to me!!!”

They Hide Behind Their god!

white death

Screams during the day;
rioting at night.
A president that’s indifferent
as he caters to the right.

Pulled over for no reason,
dragged out onto the street.
Hanged in a Texas cell
by those that wear a sheet.

Torn from his mother’s arms
by a cop that shot him dead.
A child was twelve years old;
to the grave, his coffin’s led.

They broke his neck and lied
just like they always do.
And then they called us thugs,
but that ain’t nothing new.

The white man simply laughs.
He’s got us by the balls.
We’re either dead on any street
or we’re behind his prison walls.

The white folks look at us.
And then they turn away.
They are all one and the same.
And yet, they have the nerve to pray.

They hide behind their god
as they sing Amazing Grace.
It was written by a slaver.
But isn’t slavery still in place?

You are fooled by all their smiles
and you sing a slavers hymn.
Forgiving, yes you are
 as they hang you from a limb.

I don’t know what is wrong with Black people. We are getting fucked up daily and yet, we are THE most forgiving group of people. Why is that? What makes us so damn accepting and forgiving? Why do we simply bend over and continue taking a heaping helping of ass whooping? One thing I can say about me, I never knew how to dance. Never did. I always wondered about the fact that I am Black and yet, when I got up to dance, it was assumed that I had found a dozen roaches and was attempting to stomp ’em. I think that that is the main reason why I refuse to jive down the goddamn street to the white man’s tune, I can’t fucking dance anyway. And even if I could, by now, with all the shit that’s been going down, bullshit jiving would be the last thing that I would be doing right about now. When will we ever learn? Put those goddamn protest signs down and ask yourself, how many years have we been doing the same damn thing over and over again and expecting different results? What is the definition of insanity? Yeah! You know! Doing the same goddamn thing over and over again and expecting a different result. You tell yourself, “It’s gonna be different THIS time,” but it never is. #BlackLivesMatter is gonna save the day. Don’t kid yourself. That group is as powerless as you are. The next time you see a raging inferno, take a cup of water to it and see what it does to that inferno.

The laws in this murderous hellhole called AmeriKKKa weren’t made to protect us. That is why we don’t stand a chance when we are confronted by the white man’s law. The law that they apply to us does not apply to them. They don’t do any wrong. Just ask that Uncle Tom sell-out in the White House and that piece of shit, Eric Holder that just showed us the back of his heels after leaving the ‘Justice Department’. Which Wall Street banker went to jail on corruption charges? Money laundering? Fraud? Nada! Non! None! Not one! And yet Eric Garner was attempting to add to his coffers by engaging in a bit of selling of loose, untaxed cigarettes and he is now in a coffin. You see, he wanted to be a businessman, but he couldn’t play by the white man’s rules because you have to be white in order to do that. To be a businessman, you’ve got to have the proper credentials; you’ve got to have the proper pedigree; you’ve got to be a white, lying, cheating, conniving, worm. And Eric Garner could never aspire to that.

Now, Black folks, try to go to the bank and take out a small business loan and see what you get. First, they’re going to do a criminal background check, and if you’ve been pulled over and weed was smelled inside your vehicle; well, there goes the loan. If you somehow pass the criminal background check, they’re going to check your credit score. Now, if you’ve missed one goddamn electric bill payment, no loan for you. But I’ll stop you from even wasting your time, YOU AIN”T GONNA GET A LOAN! Simple as that! Why? Because you ain’t white! Why do you think credit scores and background checks were put into play? Think! Who do they adversely affect? Look in the mirror. There you go! And that is why, there you go, right out the goddamn door of the bank, just as empty-handed as when you went in. And of course, you’re thinking that it’s all your fault. It’s not. But they do their damndest to try and make you believe that somehow, you’re not worth a penny. Don’t buy it! It’s not you that’s worth nothing. It’s them because you see, they’ve put a price on everything and according to them, your life ain’t worth spit, but the reality is, if you could pull the face off a white man, beneath it, you’d find death. That is why it is so easy for them to kill. It is because they are already dead inside. They have no heart. They have no soul and therefore, cannot have compassion or any other feelings for that matter. That is why they can pull you out of a vehicle for nothing and hang you. That is why they can shoot you in the back and plant evidence against you. That is why they can shoot a twelve-year old boy and not blink. That is why they can beat a Black woman to death. That is why they promote perversion, homosexuality, sex changes, war, human experimentation; because when they look in the mirror, they see what you don’t see. They see exactly what I’ve told you they see. They see death and that is what they promote; your death and everybody else’s because if you look around, who is doing the dying and who is doing the killing? And who started it ALL? You better wake the fuck up to what you are dealing with because death stalks this earth in the form of the white man, killing everything in his path!

Still not sold? Who built nuclear weapons and used them? Who killed the Indians for their land? Who went to Africa, stole her people and enslaved them? Who initiated a war in Iraq over a lie? Who is behind the poppy production in Afghanistan that has found its way onto every street in this shithole called AmeriKKKa? Who infested Black communities with crack? Who is sending Black bodies to the morgue by the thousands? Who is putting poisons in your food, your water and in your medicines? Who is jailing you for crimes you did not commit? Who is making up laws just to send you into For Profit prisons? Who is dismantling the public education system? Who put Jim Crow laws into effect? Who decided that two men and two women could get married? Who decided that sodomy was not a crime? Who legalized alcohol; a mind altering drug, but puts you in jail for possession of weed, a plant? Who is gentrifying your neighborhoods? Who is throwing you the fuck out by making it too expensive for you to live where you’ve always lived? Who is turning off your human right to water? Who is pretending to be benevolent by operating a charity and then stealing the donations? Who is screaming the loudest about taxes while paying none? Who is accepting bribes and kickbacks for working against your interest? Who denied you the right to vote? Who told you that you were three-fifths of a person? Who bought and sold you like cattle? Who lynched you? Who should you fear the most? The answer to every one of these questions, that’s who! And yet, you continue to march right up to the door of this shit and expect relief! Get real and prepare your ass for what’s to come!

Freddie Gray, We Failed You!

freddie gray3

Freddie Gray, we failed you.
It would seem, we always will.
We failed Amadou Diallo,
and all the rest on their list to kill.

Poor Michael Brown lay in the sun,
but his body cooled so fast.
And Trayvon still roams the night,
for being Black, he was harassed.

Eric, we failed you too.
What is there left to say?
They choked the life right out of you.
And no one was made to pay.

Oh we get upset and burn some things,
and then we quickly get over the pain.
They call us all bad thugs
but why you are dead, they can’t explain.

A mother slapped her child,
for throwing rocks and glass and such,
and the media played that up.
At that shit, they always clutch.

They always blame the victim,
for acting out of rage
“Our anger should be doused!”
So says the wise old sage.

Something’s wrong with that old sage,
He does not speak the truth.
A man is dead who did no wrong.
He was buried while in his youth.

Twelve, eighteen and twenty-two,
and on and on it goes.
These are the average ages
of Black bodies laid out in rows.

The funerals never stop.
And the buckets of tears are shed.
The lines are out the door,
but no one says what needs to be said.

Peace will never be ours to know
in this shithole built by slaves.
When have they ever cared for us,
these primates out of caves?

Never think the day will come
when they’ll stop the killing spree.
The time is now for you to act!
You’re a slave, you are not free!

If anyone thinks that the racist cops will be held accountable for Freddie Gray’s death, are you serious? With video proof that Eric Garner was murdered in cold blood, where is the indictment? With video proof of the murder of Tamir Rice, where is the indictment? With video proof of the murder of John Crawford, where is the indictment? And certainly what happened to Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina deserves a mention. What slap on the wrist will that cop get even with being charged with murder? And poor Freddie Gray was just minding his business in what the whites labeled a ‘high crime area’ so he must have been committing a crime, but so far, we’ve yet to know what crime he committed. Oh, that’s right! He fled! Even if I was in a wheelchair, I would have fled as fast as my battery powered seat could get me the hell out of there especially seeing as how Black men don’t seem to fare well when coming into contact with AmeriKKKa’s storm troopers.

And we want to think that the deceased are resting in peace? Get real!

Oh and for the woman that slapped her child, he should have hauled off and slapped some sense into your ass!

AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN!

eric garner and michael brown and walter scott

We dance this dance again,
so move over Eric Garner.
A new video is in town;
another Black man is a goner.

March again and protest.
Where is justice? Where is peace?
There is no hint of either.
Sit down! This shit won’t cease!

Paste another face on a shirt.
Go out and scream your pain.
Blow dust off an old poster.
Let your tears blend with the rain.

Yes, here we go again.
The same writing is on the wall.
Nothing much has changed.
Black lives matter to none at all.

You really can’t see the truth?
Seriously, must you be so dense,
to think that you can change
what has never made any sense?

Our bodies don’t mean shit
to the ones you protest to.
We’ve never, ever mattered
and you know that this is true.

But still, you beg them to care.
You plead to be left alone.
They’ll walk with you for a day
And then, you are on your own.

You see, we are here on sufferance,
and have overstayed no welcome,
that was never extended to us.
We’re just an object for their venom.

Now, protest all day long.
Take it to the streets.
Stand shoulder to shoulder,
with those who wear the sheets.

Give it another month or two,
and you’ll be doing this yet again;
the very definition of crazy,
expecting justice from white men.

White SC officer charged with murder in black man’s death

Dramatic video that shows a white South Carolina police officer shooting a fleeing black man after a traffic stop has led authorities to file a murder charge against the officer amid public outrage over a series of deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of law enforcement agents.

The video shows Scott falling after the shots and then the officer slowly walking toward the man and ordering him to put his hands behind his back. When Scott doesn’t move, Slager pulls his arms back and cuffs his hands. Then he walks briskly back to where he fired the shots, picks up an object, and returns the 30 feet or so back to Scott before dropping the object by Scott’s feet, the video shows.

Walter Scott may have tried to run from the officer because he owed child support, which can lead to jail time in South Carolina until it is paid, Stewart said. Scott had four children, was engaged

Black Lives Matter At Mall of America!!!!

Thousands protest at Mall of America, spark mall shut-down

Around 3,000 protesters filled the Mall of America rotunda on Dec. 20, chanting “Black Lives Matter,” while other protesters marched through the mall chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot!” Police and mall security eventually filed the protesters back outside, while dozens stayed behind to continue protesting.

The protest lasted more than 30 minutes, shutting down an entire section of the mall, before Bloomington police in riot gear, Hennepin County Sheriffs and mall security ushered protesters out of the building. Protesting remained peaceful and continued outside, before being dispersed by protest organizers. Even some store employees left their stores and stood in solidarity with the protesters with their hands raised in the air.

On December 20th, thousands of protesters converged on America’s largest mall and closed off sections of the mall. Of course mall officials were pissed off because after all, the only thing that matters to ‘Corpmerica’ is shop, shop, shop. How dare they interrupt THE biggest shopping event of the year by bringing attention to the fact that every life should matter, even Black ones!

A group called, “Black Lives Matter” is apparently, refusing to give up as the protests continue over the killing of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and many other unarmed Black people that have died at the hands of murderous cops.

Mall of America officials stated that they are ‘extremely disappointed’ with the Black Lives Matter protesters because many did not disperse when ordered to do so and of course, the cops in riot gear were called in to aid in the dispersing of the protesters. In the parking lot of Mall of America, another “Black Lives Matter” protest was taking place. The protesters staged ‘die-ins’ and chanted, “Hands up, don’t shoot,” “Black lives matter,” and “I can’t breathe,” a reference to Eric Garner’s last words before he died at the hands of a NYPD officer.

I just want to take this opportunity to say that here in Minnesota with an 85% White population and a 5% Black population, it does my heart good to see the many protests that have taken place and the fact that they were ALL well attended by Whites. People stood shoulder to shoulder with each other and shouted together. We must not lose hope because there are many, many people who care about the fact that an entire ethnic group is being denigrated because of the color of their skin and they are refusing to continue to believe in a system that is unjustly targeting Black people for extinction and they are standing up. Those that run this country, just as they run every other country that kowtows to U.S. demands, don’t want to see this coming together happen and things are going to get rough, more rough than they are now. But we’ve got the strength of numbers on our side and the fact that many of us are realizing that it’s not a Black issue, it’s not a White issue, this is a human issue and we all need to face the fact that we are in this together.

Yes, it is a shame that so many people had to die for us to get a sort of ‘awakening’ but it usually takes horrific traumatic events to get us to all come together for a common cause and to realize that “There but for the grace of God, go I!”

Together, we can change the world because we are the world. Never stop shouting. Never stop hoping. Never stop, never because we can’t ‘buy’ our way out of slavery and in a way, we are all slaves, slaves to the beast that demands we feed it with our blood, sweat and tears and that of our children and our children’s children. The only way to kill the beast is to starve it and that is why the officials at Mall of America were so disappointed in the “Black Lives Matter” protesters because they got in the way of ‘feeding’ the beast called ‘Capitalism’. They prevented some shopping.
