Trump Is Obama’s Legacy!

trump-and-obama

 

 

Decades from now, Obama will be thought of as the president that ushered in Donald Trump. Forget about the ‘first Black president’. Forget about Obamacare. And there really isn’t anything else of note to even bother mentioning, is there?

In January, Obama will hand over the reigns to Donald “You’re Fired” Trump! And basically, that is what the American people told the democrats. “You’re fired!” For many, many years, the democrats, Obama included, took the Black vote for granted. They took the ‘poor’ vote for granted. It mattered not if the poor were Black or white, their vote was taken for granted because the democrats ignored their constituents until it was time to keep a senate seat or a house seat or keep the presidency under democrat control. The democrats spouted the same old tired ass rhetoric, decade after decade and they weren’t really listening to it anymore because it was all recycled garbage; the same message that they’d always used and it did work for a long time. But now, the fat lady has sung for the democrats and for Obama’s legacy.

I will not remember Obama as the first ‘Black’ president since I cannot name a single thing his Administration has done to improve the lives of Black Americans. I cannot think of a single stroke of his executive pen that improved the lives of Black Americans. From day one, that Kenyan born asswipe turned his back on the very people who overwhelmingly voted for him. He turned his back on people who he knew voted for him in the hopes that he would recognize what we all know and do something about helping us take down a deck that has been stacked against us since our ancestors were dragged here. Even though we knew that he was born of a man from Kenya and a white mother, we knew that he had a Black wife and together they produced Black children. We thought that he would look into his wife’s eyes and into the eyes of his daughters and see our daughters, our sons but he did not. He feathered his nest and that of his family’s and left the rest of us to make it as best we could with odds so stacked against us that no bookie would even take the bet.

He promised transparency in government and then turned right around and held secret meetings with insurance companies when putting together the details of Obamacare. He promised us a single payer health care system and we got skyrocketing premiums and little options and now companies are bailing on Obamacare, left and right. He promised jobs and then turned around and held secret meetings over the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement(TPP) that would have strengthened corporate strongholds over entire nations with the ability to bankrupt them and take their natural resources, impoverishing the nation’s people.

Obama said he was “opposed to dumb wars” and yet, US troops are in Afghanistan to this day, protecting poppy plants that when harvested are given a free flight straight to the U.S. and into the veins of addicts in every city in America. Iraq is still seeing heavy fighting between U.S. trained insurgents and ‘the other guy’. Libya, which was not a hotbed for terrorist activities is off the chain thanks to policies put into play by the Obama Administration and with loving approval of his former Secretary of State Hillary “We came! We Saw! He died!” Clinton when speaking of the murder of Libya’s former leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. That warpig, Hillary Clinton guffawed over the senseless and needless murder of Gaddafi and with all else that was attached to her filthy ass, she actually thought that Americans wanted any more to do with her or with the Administration she was attached to? We showed you!

Obama did nothing; not one damn thing about the school-to-prison pipeline unless you think ignoring it is doing something about it. Inner city children are kept ignorant, on purpose because they are being groomed to feed the ‘for profit’ prison slavery system. Our children lag behind children in most other developed nations in just about every subject, especially math and science. Many cannot even find other countries on a map. There are so many who cannot even read, the calls for tutors and mentors are ear piercing. Is this another Obama’s legacy? Indeed, it is and not a proud one; not at all.

Barack Obama did more for gays than for any other group. Lit the White House up in rainbow colors when the Supreme Court approved gay marriage. Was the White House lit up in somber colors when twelve-year old Tamir Rice was gunned down two seconds after cops showed up at the park where he was playing? Was the White House lit up in somber colors after Trayvon Martin was executed by a racist who is still walking around grinning and having a good time after killing that child? Did Obama light up the White House in somber colors after Sandra Bland was found mysteriously hanged in a Texas jail cell after having been arrested for failing to make a proper turn signal? Was the White House lit up in somber colors when Freddie Gray breathed his last after having been arrested for doing nothing wrong and in the process had his neck mysteriously broken while being carted to jail in the back of a police van? No! No! No! No! No and NO!

And yet, the Obama justice Department by way of his next favorite coonhead Loretta Lynch is suing the state of North Carolina because North Carolina does not think that men who have ‘transgendered’ should be able to enter restrooms that are designated for females. Black people have been systematically butchered by racist cops and there was no reason in the world to make a stink over that, but along comes a transgender bathroom sign and it is time to get the justice department to sue over it. But to hell with ‘murder by cop’ of unarmed Black men, women and children. Does that give you a clue as to what Obama thinks of you, Black man, woman and child?

Not one asshole on Wall Street saw the inside of a prison cell for bringing entire economies to their knees thereby causing a Depression and yet then Obama Administration’s Justice Department head, Eric Holder stated that, “Bankers were too important to jail!” even though they had engaged in fraud, money laundering and other nefarious deeds, they were indeed, too important to jail. And yet, over two million Black men and women are sitting in prison for being caught with a plant(weed). Is this also part of Obama’s legacy? You goddamn right it is!

This so-called ‘first Black’ president has nothing to show for his presidency but Donald Trump and mass protests in the streets. And before that, there were mass protests in the streets over the murder of Black citizens by racist cops. Is that also an Obama legacy? You bet. Is that something to be proud of? Hell no! But he must own it because it is surely his to own.

History will indeed, remember Barack Obama and we shall as well and when history ‘whitewashes’ everything as it inevitably does, we will tell the truth. We will make sure that our children know why a racist bigot succeeded the so-called ‘first Black’ president. We will tell our children how we were lied to, ignored and thrown underneath the bus, time and time again and still many in Black communities all across this country, looked up to him. I certainly hope that they learned their lesson. Never make more of a man than he is for when all is said and done, he is still just a man and some are even less of a man than others. Obama is the lesser man and that is why his legacy to end all legacies is Donald J. Trump!

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!

Malcolm X, How We Need You!

Malcolmx3

Malcolm X, how we need you.
The movement now is dead,
and the slaves are in the pen.
Black power has all but fled.

What’s left are Uncle Toms,
and coons that play the fool.
They bow down before ole Massa,
and for his scraps, they all but drool.

There is none throughout this land
that can spit your fire and truth.
And the sad fact of the matter is,
we refuse to protect our youth.

With a half and half in the White House,
the movement is tagged and bagged.
And with bootlicking in the halls of justice,
the Black man’s voice is bound and gagged.

They all stand idly by,
and watch their numbers dwindle.
There is no man among these men,
that could a movement, kindle.

They look around and wait,
for a savior to light the way.
And when they’re shot or sent to jail,
they just stare in mute dismay.

Oh Malcolm X, we know you’re gone,
and we will never see your like.
Today, our men tremble in fear,
while the militants are out on strike.

“Any time Uncle Sam, with all his machinery for warfare, is held to a draw by some rice eaters, he’s lost the battle. He had to sign a truce. America’s not supposed to sign a truce. She’s supposed to be bad. But she’s not bad any more. She’s bad as long as she can use her hydrogen bomb, but she can’t use hers for fear Russia might use hers. Russia can’t use hers, for fear that Sam might use his. So, both of them are weapon-less. They can’t use the weapon because each [country’s] weapon nullifies the other’s. So the only place where action can take place is on the ground. And the white man can’t win another war fighting on the ground. Those days are over. The black man knows it, the brown man knows it, the red man knows it, and the yellow man knows it. So they engage him in guerrilla warfare. That’s not his style. You’ve got to have heart to be a guerrilla warrior, and he hasn’t got any heart.”

“It takes heart to be a guerrilla warrior because you’re on your own. In conventional warfare you have tanks and a whole lot of other people with you to back you up—planes over your head and all that kind of stuff. But a guerrilla is on his own. All you have is a rifle, some sneakers and a bowl of rice, and that’s all you need—and a lot of heart.”

– Malcolm X

And ‘heart’ is exactly what we are losing even though we know that America ain’t about shit when it comes to hand-to-hand combat and that is why drones were invented because whites can’t fight up close and personal and win. And even with using drones, ISIS is still kicking ass and will continue to do so while Black bodies pile up at the morgue in America and Black women will continue to moan and wail over the demise of their sons and daughters. We don’t have what it takes and now, we never will. We should be fucking shit up over here but all we do is raise our hands in the air and march down the goddamn street begging some white motherfucker to give us the same goddamn rights that are afforded to the whites by the Constitution. So, do you still think that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights pertain to you, Black man and Black woman? And since they don’t apply to you, they sure as hell don’t apply to your children. But go ahead! Sign up to go and fuck with ISIS or fuck up the Iraqi people some more and continue to disturb the goddamn peace in Afghanistan and if they send your ass to Libya, you’re in for it ’cause it’s off the goddamn chain, thanks to the good ole red, white and blue and bully NATO.

You are marching because some white motherfucker shot and killed your son or daughter because the whites are afraid of you. That is why they don’t bother to get up close and personal, they just shoot you from 300 yards away. That is why police departments all across this shithole have requested and received militarized weaponry from warzones because they want to launch a grenade all up your ass from miles away. Next, they’re going to be drone striking your ass because that’s what the whites are doing to every other Black and Brown body all across this planet. Malcolm X warned you in ways too numerous to count and when he died, all of his fire and spirit and truth and action died and was buried with him and now, we just quote him and protest and march against the next murder of one of our own by racist ass cops. That’ll show ’em!

Fuck The Fake Media!

Fuck the fake media and fuck their lies.
They’ve an agenda that’s against our very lives.

Their fake ass shit is smoke and mirrors.
They hide the true faces of our killers.

We’re to forget about the war we fight in Syria,
and not think about the shit we stirred in Libya.

Have you forgotten the invasion of Iraq?
Why isn’t the media focusing on that?

They distract us with their instigating shit,
and have us listen to a lie that Holder spit!

We all know that Obama is a puppet.
And Henson’s got himself another Muppet.

Obama never stood for hope and change,
and Muppet Holder loves the New York Stock Exchange.

Now let’s all turn our backs on CNN.
They’re owned by the shadow bogeymen.

When we fight amongst ourselves, it’s what they want,
and that is why they make up shit to taunt,
the people of all races into hate.
Don’t listen and do not take the bait.

If we all march together and as one,
and maintain the momentum, they will run.

Their aim is to divide us into groups.
If we fall for that shit, then we are dupes.

Never trust the media; they are whores,
for the elites that will destroy us with their wars.

The fake ass mainstream media is designed to distract, divide and conquer us. If we are fighting each other, the oligarchy win and they are who the media whores whore themselves out for. If we can learn to come together to fight against those who are behind the scenes of this shit stirring, they lose and that is why they have upped the ante, so to speak. It’s no holds barred. Wake up! Fight, but let’s not fight each other. We need each other and that IS the truth.
