I Owe You Nothing!

Colin and Jesse

Colin, I too, sit!
Not only do I sit,
but I also spit
upon a flag
that I perceive
to be nothing
more than
a worthless rag.
No one fought
to free me,
for I am
still, a slave.
If not,
then why,
why am I
in jail?
I am
making money,
not for me,
but for
my white masters.
In this arena,
I am,
a spectator sport.
I am admired
for my prowess
on the football field,
on the tennis court,
on the hip/hop stage
and for the NBA.
I sit because
I cannot stand,
not with these
iron chains
that drag
me down.
Tired, though
I am,
you want
me to stand
and salute
my slavery;
your hypocrisy.
I owe you nothing;
not my soul
nor any allegiance.
You want me to leave?
Tell that to my ass
and kiss it good
for you know
why I am here.
So, hate me!
That’s nothing new.
Denounce me
for I could care less.
When are you
going to leave?
No one
invited you here.
Ask an Indian man
just what the fuck
your white ass
is doing here!
Me? Disrespecting
the troops?
The troops
can kiss my ass!
How’s that
for disrespect?
Killing the Vietnamese
did not set me free.
Killing Iraqis
did not set me free.
Killing Iranians
did not set me free.
You are the Nazis,
experimenting
on my blood,
infesting it
with your diseases,
but you want me
to stand and salute
my annihilation
by your hands.
Suck it motherfuckers,
and go to hell!

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has willingly immersed himself into controversy by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he deems are wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the United States.

His latest refusal to stand for the anthem — he has done this in at least one other preseason game — came before the 49ers‘ preseason loss to Green Bay at Levi’s Stadium on Friday night.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

And before you get started on the questions, “Why are these bi-racial people taking such public stands against oppression of Black people in Amerikkka? Is it because they are insulated due to the fact of their having a ‘white’ parent and so therefore, they feel as though they’ll not suffer much from the condemnation of their stance?,” ask yourself, does it really matter who is taking a stand? We all remember Jesse Williams speech at the 2016 BET awards.

“Now, this award, this is not for me. This is for the real organizers all over the country, the activists, the civil rights attorneys, the struggling parents, the families, the teachers, the students that are realizing that a system built to divide and impoverish and destroy us cannot stand if we do. All right?” he explained. “It’s kind of basic mathematics: The more we learn about who we are and how we got here, the more we will mobilize.”

And ‘white’ Amerikkka, right on par, went nuts, being ‘post-racial’, of course. “There’s a Black man in the White House! What more do you ‘people’ want?” I am sure that is tame in comparison to all that was said and all that is being said because Colin Kaepernick had the nerve to sit and by doing so, dishonored the troops. Who the fuck cares about the ‘troops’ when the ‘troops’ are needing all up and down on some medical care and some anti-suicide help in their time of crisis? You fail to recall concrete evidence that no one gives a shit about the troops until a Black person takes a stand that’s deemed, ‘unpatriotic’ and then, let’s put the ‘troops’, front and center, when the ‘troops’ can’t even get necessary medical care when they need it. The ‘troops’ are homeless, hungry and fucked up in the head, but Colin disrespected the ‘troops’ by not standing during the national anthem; an anthem that is as racist as the day is long and well into the night. As racist as it was from the time this land was ‘discovered’ and illegally occupied by a nasty, syphilis dripping ‘white’ ass! You hypocritical shits take the goddamn cake with your fake ass attempts at outrage; outrage that acts as a shield to cover the filth that hides beneath it. You’re not outraged! You’re a nasty ass blight on the face of this planet and you hate to be shown up for what you are! Well, you can suck it! Because the ‘troops’ don’t mean shit to you and they certainly don’t mean shit to me since not one of those military whores did I ever ask to put a goddamn thing on the line for me and quite frankly, they have not put a goddamn thing on the line for freedom. For when has ‘freedom’ ever been achieved by violence, missiles, drone warfare, torture, war crimes and illegal occupation? It has not!

So, yes indeed, I SIT with Colin and damn the consequences! Now, come on up in here with your fake-assed outrageous patriotic bullshit and see if I don’t sit your hypocritical ass down beside me for the next singing of the national anthem!

Oh and lastly, yeah! This is how much we fucking care about the ‘troops’!

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold Please!”

The VA, has been swamped with calls since opening in 2007. The volume increased from fewer than 10,000 in 2007 to more than 500,000 last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.

A 2010 calculation by the VA estimates that 22 veterans kill themselves each day. The VA, which has not updated that estimate, says the hotline “rescues” 30 veterans from suicide each day.

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

In February, an Inspector General investigation revealed that some of the in-coming calls early last year had rolled over to back-up centers and gone to voicemail.

But we ‘care’ about the ‘troops’???!!! Shut the fuck up! Because if you really cared about the ‘troops’, your ass would be ‘manning’ the suicide hotlines in an attempt to aid those military whores in their quest for some peace of mind that they will never find since they willingly chose to surrender peace to a gun, a uniform and ‘fake-ass patriotism’! I spit on the flag and to hell with your racist ass national anthem! Shove it up YOUR pink ass! I can’t because I’m sitting this shit the fuck out!

“Hark The Hypocrites Do Sing!”

hark the hypocrites

 

– sing to the tune of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.”

Hark the hypocrites do sing!
Glory to the news they bring
Bombs on earth and missiles too
Aimed at me and aimed at you
Peace on earth is but a dream
Can’t you hear the people scream?
Watch the bombs light up the skies
Listen to the children’s cries
And the Christians doth proclaim
Christ was born and that’s so lame
There they sit with pants unzipped
I don’t want to see them stripped
Lambs aren’t in the manger fold
They are waiting to be sold
Lamb chops on the menu here
Wash them down with ice cold beer
Kiss your mother who is drunk
Daddy dear is in a funk
He didn’t get a penis pump
Where’s a cliff for him to jump?
Uncle Jack is in rehab
His herpes has formed a scab

Hark the hypocrites do sing
Glory to the new crack wing!
You will overdose again
When you do, just say, “Amen!”
We so love the holidays,
refugees are in a daze
Drones have struck the innocent
Brag about the cash you’ve spent
Christmas comes but once a year
Hark the hypocrites, you hear!
Glory to the bottom line.
Now throw out this dead ole pine
Bring me whiskey on the rocks
Time to ride some big ole cocks
Hark the hypocrites do sing!
Glory to your fake ass king!

And if you didn’t know, I’ll be more than happy to clue you in. Your fake ass king is M-O-N-E-Y!

I am SO in the Christmas spirit this year, I just cannot help myself. Bombs are being dropped in distant lands. Drones are killing innocent people. But for one day, we will put all of that aside. We will, for one day, express our love for our family and friends and associates. We will gift them all that credit cards can buy. This is how we show our devotion and love; with gifts. We don’t show our love by worrying about the conditions of third-world sweatshops and the people who ‘slave’ in them. We don’t care that people are suffering so bad, that they would rather commit suicide than continue on. We carelessly head to the mall and shop until we drop; shoving that piece of plastic across the counter and out the door, we go. But we are so thoughtful and kind and decent. We then head to the supermarket and thoughtlessly pick the choicest piece of butchered cow or pig or lamb and we get someone to cook that up for us; rare, medium rare or well done. Stock the liquor cabinet. Are all the mixers shelved and ready? Oh look at the beautiful tree. It was beautiful when it was in its natural state, but now, it has been chopped and kept ‘green’ by some polluted ass faucet water; that is until this is all over and then, “Throw it away!”

In all actuality, this planet should “Throw us away!” I wish to hell it would. With our fake ass moaning over climate change; we cut down more trees to have signs printed calling for climate change reform when we are instrumental in the death of this planet by the cutting down of more and more trees for those very signs. Sigh! The ‘human’ race is a disgrace to this planet and to the innocent animals that occupy it and who are at the mercy of the merciless. How can we claim to be merciful when we are shedding tears because our father or brother or sister is overseas, suited up in military gear ready to kill someone they don’t even know and for what? Room and board? Some food stamps? Glory? Honor? One thing I can say is that we cannot lose honor because we never had any to begin with. Now, we’re all just meaningless filth; pretending to be do-gooders and concerned creatures. Shove it! Your so-called ‘loved one’ would not be in Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria if we did not have that killer instinct that drives us. Love does not drive us for if it did, we would not condone the killing of others and claim that it is honorable. What the fuck are YOU celebrating this Christmas? Especially those of you who go on and on about ‘climate change’. Those of you who go on and on about the untold miseries that other people are dealing with while you go on and on about how wonderful and kind you are that you hashtagged some solidarity with the ‘unfortunates’. You did your part when you displayed some colors in a flag over your Facebook photo. Oh wow! Now shit yourself because you did GOOD!

Maybe I am Miss goddamn humbug! But at least, I am honest about the fact that I am just another worthless so-called ‘human’. But one thing about me, I’m NO hypocrite! So, enjoy your ‘holiday’. And I sincerely hope that that pig you’ll eat, deposits itself on your ass!
