Mike Brown Was At Fault!

state troopers in riot gear

The verdict is in, is any one of us surprised?
I could say that I was, but then I would have lied.

It was known all along what the outcome would be.
Darren Wilson was innocent, why else has he been free?

Mike Brown was at fault, he should never have been born.
Didn’t his mama know from birth that her child would be scorned?

Those who came before us paved the way to where we are.
But when you look around you, have we really come so far?

Our pastors pray to God to stop those bullets made of lead.
And yet Emmett, Eric, Trayvon, Mike and Amadou are still dead.

Yes, let us pray to God to stop the racists with a gun.
And while we are at it, ask God to tell us what we’ve done.

Were we brought here against our will, or did we climb into a boat,
and row from Africa’s shores when we read the white man’s note?

Did we come to build this land and expect not one thin dime?
We were whipped and chained and raped and now we’re doing time.

They’ve got a plan for us but let’s not go out peacefully.
If they want a goddamn war then arm yourselves for anarchy.

We were pissed on yet again, so fuck shit up tonight.
Or go back home, get on your knees and ask God to do what’s right.

We’ve been doing that shit for how long now, it’s getting kind ‘a old.
I’m tired of waiting on a miracle while Black bodies are getting cold.

God ain’t lying on these streets, our sons and daughters are.
We got no time to wait on God or just wish upon a star.

You say Mike Brown is with his God; his soul is now at peace.
If what you say is true, then to God, send the damn police!

No indictment for police officer in death of Michael Brown.

A grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed, black 18-year-old whose fatal shooting sparked weeks of sometimes-violent protests.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch announced the decision Monday evening. A grand jury of nine whites and three blacks had been meeting weekly since Aug. 20 to consider evidence.

At least nine votes would have been required to indict Wilson.

Pastors were planning a rally and prayer service later Monday evening at the West Side Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis.

“There’s a lot of hurt, a lot of brokenness. There’s anger and frustration on every side,” said the Rev. Ronald Bobo Sr., the church’s pastor. “We need the hand of God to lead us and guide us.”

“I’m Off To Kill Another One!”


I’ve got blood soaked hands and I don’t care.
There are bullet riddled bodies lying everywhere.

The blood of the Black man, I know is inferior.
I am still his master and therefore, superior.

When I shoot, I aim to kill and I’ll stand for nothing less.
Now, send in forensics to clean up the mess.

I leave them lying on the street like a dog that’s put down.
They’re not people like me; the Black and the Brown.

“I feared for my life,” that old adage, I use.
It works every time and my badge I never lose.

When their bodies jerk and twitch, I foam at the mouth.
I get a call from the skinheads that are way down south.

They thank me profusely for a job well done.
If the suspect is Black, I’m off to kill another one.

You are fine with what I do because I get away with killing.
From the whites there is no uproar because it’s Black blood that I’m spilling.

“Michael, Oh Dear Michael!”


Sleep, sleep the sleep of peace.
For eighteen years, your heart did beat
and it only took a few moments to end your life
with your blood flowing down a Missouri street.

You lie so still and so cold where warmth used to be.
We stare down at you with hands raised in the air.
The remembered good times and your smiles
will always stay with us and your death is just not fair.

What can we do to stop another mother and father
from going through this pain and anguish and fear
that your brothers and your sisters may know the same.
We cannot let you down and I hope that you can feel us near.

Michael, oh dear Michael, you were born in innocence
but what you had to know so quickly, was hate.
And you never got the chance to smile down at your son
as I look down at you and silently scream at fate.

“Michael, we love you!”

Yes, The Pentagon Is Injected Into This! They Supplied The Military Equipment!


“US rethinks giving excess military gear to police

After a decade of sending military equipment to civilian police departments across the country, federal officials are reconsidering the idea in light of the violence in Ferguson, Missouri.”

After a decade? Why the fuck now? It couldn’t of course be because the world is watching what is going down in Ferguson, MO and how the hypocritical whore called, America ain’t about shit since it can no longer scream and yell about bringing freedom and democracy to the world when its own citizens who were peacefully protesting faced down cops using military equipment that was sent back from Iraq and Afghanistan and now is on the streets of Ferguson, MO and anywhere else they want to use it. And the police are lying their goddamn fucking heads off over who is initiating the violence in Ferguson. That militarized shit is behind the violence and is trying to hide what they’re doing by telling lies about how violent the protesters are. If anybody thinks that the fucking governor Jay Nixon wouldn’t lie, ask yourself this! When has a politician ever opened his/her mouth and told the goddamn truth? I rest my fucking case!

“The public has absorbed images of heavily armed police, snipers trained on protesters and tear gas plumes. Against that backdrop, Attorney General Eric Holder said that when police and citizens need to restore calm, “I am deeply concerned that the deployment of military equipment and vehicles sends a conflicting message.”

You’re goddamn right ‘the public has absorbed images of heavily armed police, snipers trained on protesters and tear gas plumes’ and have come to the conclusion that certain people in this shithole are just about as free as animals in a zoo. But of course, that is what Black people are likened to in this shithole, animals, and that is why the cops have no problem donning military gear, driving military vehicles and using tear gas on peaceful protesters. Who would have thought that there would be a hue and a cry raised from countries all over the world about how America is treating her own citizens? What people don’t seem to realize is that Black people have never been considered, real citizens. From slavery, we were counted as three-fifths of a person. We were ‘human’ enough to be used to build this country. We were ‘human’ enough to be raped, sodomized and brutalized and bear the foul ass seed of the whites, but still, we were somehow missing that supreme element that makes us completely human. And whatever it is, I don’t fucking want it because if it makes me like the whites, it can’t be good. It’s some vile and nasty shit and furthermore, we don’t fucking need it since it’s all like that!

“What we’re seeing in Ferguson is a reflection of the militarization of American policing,” said Kara Dansky, senior counsel with the ACLU’s Center for Justice. “They’re trained to think of what they do as going into battle.”

Asked about the program at a Defense Department news briefing on Thursday, a spokesman said the program had proven useful because it allows U.S. law enforcement to reuse military equipment that would otherwise go to waste.
“That said, it is up to law enforcement agencies to speak to how and what they gain through this system. And I’m not going to inject the Pentagon into this discussion,” Rear Admiral John Kirby said.”

Just what the hell did they think was going to happen when they decided to give military equipment to the police? Fuck your ‘Rear’ amoral John Kirby, the Pentagon injected the Pentagon into the discussion when it issued local police departments, military equipment. Don’t try to step away from that shit that the Pentagon injected. Don’t now back the fuck up because that foul ass shit has hit the airwaves all across this planet about how fucked up this shithole is. The Pentagon knew exactly what would happen with a militarized police force all across America. This was fucking done by design and so don’t now sit back and attempt to absolve the Pentagon of any complicity in what the Pentagon initiated in the first place.

Now that the shit has hit the fan, no one wants to take responsibility for the shit that was unleashed on American soil. The war machine was fucking gonna find some way to use that goddamn military equipment even if was to be used on American soil and kill those that the fucking white supremacists have always had a goddamn problem with but don’t let it get out in the open see?, ’cause we’ve got a reputation to uphold. No, WE don’t! America ain’t got a reputation to uphold! America’s reputation is in shreds and is worthless. America is a nasty ass diseased whore for which there is no known cure except for complete annihilation. This bitch needs to die because this bitch never gets tired of war! So, die already whore!


America never stood for freedom for the slaves.
It was America that put so many Indians in their graves.
No whore was ever as foul as America will always be.
“I didn’t land on Plymouth Rock, Plymouth Rock landed on me!” – Malcolm X

This War Will Never Be Over!

Is that Iraq? Afghanistan? Libya? Uh...NO! It's Ferguson, MO USA!
Is that Iraq? Afghanistan? Libya? Uh…NO! It’s Ferguson, MO!

Put the city on lockdown.
Call out the national guard.
The people are in an uproar.
Hoist the cops on their own petard!

This war will never be over.
There’s too many of us to kill.
And the battle rages on,
so many graves yet to fill.

Don’t get tired, get mad.
You can’t bargain with the devil,
for he has naught to lose
and the killing field’s not level.

You’re on your own with this one,
just as you’ve always been.
They shoot you in the back,
and on you, their crime they pin.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew Saturday in a St. Louis suburb where police and protesters have clashed in the week since a black teenager was shot to death by a white police officer.


State of emergency? Damn straight! Fuck IT Up!!!

Michael Lies Dead!

Michael Brown

A heart was beating,
blood coursed through veins
Bullets pierced skin
and now chaos reigns.

Hands raised skyward.
Michael lies dead.
In Ferguson Missouri,
his blood flowed red.

Burn and loot,
tear it all down!
Display your anger,
destroy the town.

His mother cries,
and his father too.
He was their child.
Retribution is due!

I don’t give a damn who will condemn those who burn shit and fuck it up! It is past time that people stopped being polite about murder. Since violence begets violence, what the hell did people expect? I’m not going to continue to meet murder, tear gas and rubber bullets with my hands raised, I’d eventually realize that it is time that I do some fucking up! No, it’s not going to bring Michael Brown back and nor will it bring back all the others who were murdered just as he was, but at the same time, where has peaceful gotten us? Just ask the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., about that. Oh! Right, we can’t! He was murdered but not before he was spied on by his own government. But actually, he had no government because if he did, he would not have had to get jailed, get hosed down with high powered water hoses and get dogs let loose on him for trying to obtain the same rights as whites had just for being fucking white assed! He and many, many others peacefully marched and protested to end racial segregation and discrimination against Black Americans and enforce constitutional voting rights to them.

…and the Supreme Court just recently gutted the hell out of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. So, what did doing it the ‘peaceful’ way get us? Not a goddamn thing! Black people built this shithole and we damn sure as hell shouldn’t have a problem burning it down. To hell with this shithole!

Michael Brown Didn’t Own Any Cattle!

This is the reaction by the cops when people protest the murder of an unarmed Black teenager.
This is the reaction by the cops when people protest the murder of an unarmed Black teenager.
This is what happens when whites defy a court order requiring them to pay grazing fees for grazing their cattle on public land for decades. The FEDERAL MARSHALLS turned tail and ran on home!

Cliven Bundy and his militia
faced down some well armed Feds.
No tear gas did they breathe.
Were their arms raised over their heads?

Michael Brown didn’t own any cattle
if he had, he wouldn’t have been shot.
Make a note of the hypocrisy
at the root of America’s rot.

If a white man points his gun
at Federal Marshalls who turn away
and when cops shoot a Black man dead
to you, what does that say?

When they set their dogs on you
and the tear gas stings your eyes
while your hands are in the air
you can’t say that you’re surprised.

There’s no need to look too far
to find that nothing’s changed.
if you’re a descendant of a slave
you’re now shot, instead of hanged.

When Cliven Bundy and militia groups faced down Federal Marshalls in Nevada over Bundy’s failure to pay over a million dollars in grazing fees, the Federal Marshalls backed the fuck down and went home. No tear gas or rubber bullets was used and afterwards, the militia groups made their presence felt by setting up checkpoints and stopping people and demanded IDs. Are any of them dead? Arrested? Awaiting trial? Fuck no! You see, they’re just being ‘good ole boys’. What’s the problem? Nothing to see here folks, move along!


And now, we have another unarmed Black teenager gunned down and left to lie in the street without even the decency of a cover over his dead body, a sight his parents will never forget and people who are beyond fed up and fucking tired of police brutality against Black people, who are fucking tired of police vilifying the murdered, who are fucking tired of the simple ass explanations for why another Black teenager is dead, had the effrontery to protest that shit and fucking WOW! The police donned military gear, drove military vehicles and commenced to firing tear gas and rubber bullets at the Black protesters who were not protesting cattle grazing fees but who were protesting the murder of yet another young Black man and now, of course the police are as usual vindicating the murder of this young man because it has been alleged that he stole a box of cigars and walked in the middle of the street.

Don’t forget, the police did the same to Trayvon Martin, justified his murderers actions because the murderer allegedly had some cuts and scrapes on the back of his head and therefore was within his rights to stand his ground and murder Trayvon Martin after having gotten out of his vehicle and stalked Trayvon. Of course, it was Trayvon’s fault for attempting to defend himself against an unknown stalker with a gun.

Isn’t it always the Black man’s fault for getting himself murdered by the cops or vigilantes?

“Black men, you’re not to go outside. You’re to remain inside your homes forever. Do not wear a hoodie. Do not steal a box of cigars because that’s an offense worth dying for. The one thing you can do is owe over a million dollars to the Feds in grazing fees and see if the ‘ALL WHITE MILITIA’ will back you up on it! If so! You’re good to go! And if not, is there ever a good day to die?”
