White Women, I’m Glad You’re Showing Up. But I’m Not Sure I Trust You Just Yet. – Laura Cathcart Robbins

That is some straight up bullshit! White women are NOT in this with Black women and for them to pretend otherwise would be a lie!

 

 

Here we go! Another ‘apologetic’ post from what resembles a half breed. Go figure! And let me make myself clear on this. I do NOT agree with this Laura Cathcart Robbins. I just posted this piece of shit of hers to debunk it!

 

But circa 2020, those white women are with us now. They are marching alongside us; they are calling their congressperson and crying out for change; they are showing their solidarity on social media (post after post after post ― and yo, you can chill on that a little, we get it).

They’re giving us the support I longed for and needed back in 1992. They have shown up in a big way, and some compelling people are taking notice. But here’s the thing: I’m not entirely sure how I feel about that support now. My experiences with the Karens of the world have left me feeling salty.

Robbins is yarning on and on about the ‘Rodney King’ beating and how whites were more vocal about some white truck driver being pulled out of his truck during the Rodney King riots than they were over the merciless beating of Rodney King at the hands of LAPD. She was hoping for some lasting change to come about since the vicious beating was recorded. But she thinks that what happened to Rodney King on March 3, 1991 should have been enough of a wake-up call as to what whites were doing to Black people so that the shit would cease. She thinks that 29 years should have made a difference. For the love of !!!!!

Four hundred years and counting has not made a gnat’s ass worth of difference and so why does she think that 29 years should make a difference? Why is she pretending astonishment that George Floyd took Rodney King’s place in 2020, along with hundreds of other Black people? Why does she think the beatings and the shootings by kops of Black people should have ceased just because there was video footage of Rodney King getting himself beaten half to death?

But Robbins says, “those white women are with us now.” What???!!! Like the white woman who LIED and got Emmett Till murdered? Like the white women who stood and watched Black boys and men hanging from trees and laughed? Like the white woman who murdered Botham Shem Jean in his own apartment and made up LIES that she thought he was in hers? Like the white woman who was violating park rules by allowing her dog to remain unleashed and who when called out on that shit by a Black man, called the kops on the Black man who was out bird watching, LIED and told the kops that an “African American MAN was assaulting her?” Are “those the white women who are with us now?” That vicious pack of filthy, lying sluts???!!!

Oh yes, I can see how Robbins would come to the conclusion that “those white women are with us now” because they are standing somewhere on a protest line pretending to give a good goddamn about what they and their counterparts do to us. White women are some of the most vile creatures to ever slither across this planet. They are the same as those white male slugs that they hatch.

“They’re giving us the support I longed for and needed back in 1992”

White women are giving us support??!! What support? Where is it? Support is NOT attending a protest. Support is not hugging a Black person. Support is NOT stating that you have a Black friend. Support is NOT dating a Black man. Support is not marrying a Black man. Is this Robbins idiot for real??!!

Yep! There is definitely MORE white in her ass than Black because only whites can come out and say shit like that: “They’re giving us support.” Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit!

If white women were about shit, they would be demanding that the prison cell doors be opened and that Black inmates who have been cooling their heels inside prisons for 25 years should be released. If white women were about shit, they would be making sure that Black children were not sitting up in schools that lacked heating, air conditioning, computers, desks and books. If white women were about shit, they would be demanding an end to GENTRIFICATION. If white women were about shit, they would be questioning why the outcome for Black women giving birth is not the equivalent of their outcome. If white women were about shit, those kops that they are dating or married to would not be out on the streets beating the hell out of Black people and shooting them for the hell of it. If white women were about shit, they would be posting the names of ALL the members of white supremacy groups, bar none. If white women were about shit, they would be demanding to know why there are so many missing Black children and women while there are Amber Alerts and ‘missing children’ websites that only feature whites. So don’t give me that bullshit about “white women supporting us.” White women have no use for supporting us because they benefit from the system that keeps us down; white supremacy. White women are not about to do anything to fuck with their white privilege.

I might be coming off as judgmental and callous (sorry about that). But please understand that we’ve been through COVID 19, three months of quarantine, Breonna Taylor being murdered by the police in her sleep, Ahmaud Aubery being hunted and gunned down by a former cop and his son, Christian Cooper being targeted by Amy Cooper (no relation), and now George Floyd ― it’s a lot.

WHAT.THE.HELL.

What Black woman in her right mind would feel the need to ‘apologize’ for speaking truth to white women? What Black woman would keep talking about how sorry she is to upset white women with real talk? What Black woman would give a shit about how white women took what she put down?

These fake ass Black female impersonators have got to go! Stop pretending that your ass is Black, Laura Cathcart Robbins. There ain’t shit Black about you because this entire article was written as an apology letter to white women for interrupting their “sitting around the pool cocktail hour.” Those white women who were seen at protests were nothing more than props. They don’t give a damn about what is happening to Black people. They will never give a damn about Black people and I’ll be damned before I apologize to those pasty faced, flat assed she devils, EVER!

Only REAL Black women would stay true to themselves and tell it like it is, UNAPOLOGETIC!!!! And damn the consequences. And once more, for the dumb as all hell motherfuckers in the back row, I don’t give a damn for some white woman’s feelings. They don’t have any feelings because first, they must be ‘human’ and that is what white males and females can NEVER aspire to and so Laura Cathcart Robbins, take several seats because whatever the hell you are, you ain’t Black! That’s for damn sure! Apologize to white women for the vile ass creatures they are??!!! On the fucking twelfth of NEVER! That’s how REAL BLACK WOMEN ROLL! Bitch, get the fuck to steppin’!

 

Our Death Is All They Seek!

Our Death Is All They Seek!

 

To finally get some peace, he had to die out on the street,
killed by hate and racism from every white man we still meet.
For over four hundred years, we have been screaming out our pain,
and little did we know that our screams were all in vain.

The world is finally listening, but what good will that do us?
We marched to sit up front, but now we’re underneath the bus.
The ‘leader’ of this country stood and told us we are “THUGS!”
And then he told his gangsters to stomp us like we’re bugs.

We own no tanks or missiles, nor drones to take a stand.
We’re tired and poor and cursed in this white man’s stolen land.
Our death is all they seek and so we’re off to bury the dead.
Because to them we lack humanity, though our blood is also red.

Why must we bear the blame for a crime we didn’t commit?
To this day, it seems we’re slaves and to their will, we must submit.
We are a people without a country; we are clouds in a savage storm.
blown away by white supremacy, a system they can’t reform.
One day, there’ll be a reckoning that we won’t live to see
for those of us alive today, are still yearning to be free.

It is a sad ass shame that the only way those of us who are descendants of slaves who were dragged over here to ‘serve’ the white man AND white woman’s every whim, can expect to get any peace from them is by being murdered at their hands. There are too many times that we have trudged through a cemetery to bury our dead and some racist kop was never indicted or even fired from his duties of murdering us.

Poor Black people, who mostly cannot even afford life insurance, have to make use of crowd funding or either some ‘celebrity’ will come forward to pay for the funeral expenses. From cradle to grave, we are to forever hand the white man some money while he is busy killing us since many Black women’s babies die in childbirth in this supposedly, First World Nation. What sense does that make? And even if we make it to our teenage years, we are still murdered for merely coming home from a store, carrying iced tea and skittles. Our children cannot even play in a park without getting shot dead. We cannot drive down the street without getting pulled over and shot for complying with the orders to produce our identification. We cannot sleep in our beds without kops beating down the door and shooting us as we lay deep in slumber and yet, none are held accountable for what they do to us.

And now, another Black family, the family of George Floyd, is about set to bury him because he went into a store and was accused of trying to purchase items with a counterfeit bill, and I have heard that even that was a lie. But even so, was that any reason for a racist kop to murder him, casually as though he was merely a bug to be squashed on the sidewalk? As if that is not bad enough, a stomp down, flaming racist, draft dodging bigot has the nerve to order the U.S. military to ‘put us down’ when he was scared too shitless to even join the very military he has called out on us. What sense does that make?

But you whites want to write blog after blog about how ‘woke’ your ass is now! You ain’t woke. Your funky, filthy ass racist petticoat is showing and the world is now denouncing the shit that you’ve been subjecting us to for hundreds of years in this shithole. You haven’t been struck by a ray of conscientiousness. You don’t even have a conscience to berate you, for if you did, would our situation now be making headline news all across this godforsaken planet that you have managed to fuck up? Hell no, it wouldn’t.

You whites think that you’re doing something by showing up at a protest with a sign stating, “Black Lives Matter!” Our lives have never mattered to you and don’t you think for one damn second that I am buying your flaming lies now! So save it! I’m not buying your sudden displays of solidarity when you are why GENTRIFICATION has driven us into homelessness. You are why we are incarcerated by the millions. You are why we are dumb as shit because while you are funding private schools with our money, public schools don’t even have computers or enough books in them and this you know. We are the faces of the jobless, the hungry and the homeless and the disparities in healthcare is obscene and dangerous and is causing our demise at a faster rate than yours. We don’t have any hopes of longevity and most don’t even want to live long, hopeless, racism filled lives of despair!

You whites have shitted on us from the time our ancestors were dragged ashore and you are still shitting on us and telling us that we are to blame for crime in the inner cities; that we are to blame for not having land and wealth to hand down to our sons and daughters. How the hell can we hand a damn thing down to anyone when you made damn sure that you owned it ALL because you damn well owned our ancestors that you claimed were only three fifths of a human? How the hell did you expect us to overcome that shit? YOU DIDN’T. So don’t now turn around and act like you are just getting hit with an epiphany. You know what the fuck you’ve been doing to us and you’re not about to stop that shit now. Shove that fake ass solidarity shit up your pale asses because I am having none of it!

 

How the hell did that man, George Floyd, deserve that? But that is ALL too familiar to us! And you dirty, filthy, racist whites know that this has been going down for centuries. You know this because racists like that piece of shit are YOUR family members and you know your own damn family because you’re one of them. So don’t now claim that you had no idea about ANY of this shit because you’re a goddamn liar! Fucking flaming, racist hypocrites! I despise you ALL!

Uh Oh! It’s Gotta Be Bad When Corporate Lawyers Are Now Losing Their Jobs! HA!

😅😂🤣😅😂🤣😅😂🤣 Yes, I am THAT amused by this headline!

A Second Round of Coronavirus Layoffs Has Begun. No One Is Safe.

The first people to lose their jobs worked at restaurants, malls, hotels and other places that closed to contain the coronavirus pandemic. Higher skilled work, which often didn’t require personal contact, seemed more secure.

That’s not how it’s turning out.

A second wave of job loss is hitting those who thought they were safe. Businesses that set up employees to work from home are laying them off as sales plummet. CORPORATE LAWYERS ARE SEEING JOBS DRY UP. Government workers are being furloughed as state and city budgets are squeezed. And health-care workers not involved in fighting the pandemic are suffering.

“CORPORATE LAWYERS ARE SEEING JOBS DRY UP!” Thank you coronavirus! And Michael Cockson, this is dedicated to YOU! Even though your sorry, racist ass is a partner at FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402, I hope to hell that this virus closes down that law firm after what you did to your poor clients and that included my cousin. I hope your income dries up, BIG FUCKING TIME!

But as usual, I digress!

So, those who thought that they could comfortably work from home and still receive a paycheck since they were not restaurant workers, retail clerks, hotel desk clerks or maids or bus drivers, janitors or who worked at Amazon warehouses are finding themselves to be affected by this latest round of layoffs? How does it feel to at first think that your shit didn’t stink, but you now know that it does? You ain’t hardly happy about that fact, I’m sure. But sit your ass down and from the comfort of your home, while you’re still in it, click on the link to take you to the website so that you can sign up for unemployment benefits. Order your groceries and wait for your greatly reduced unemployment check to be deposited into your account because now you’ve joined the ranks of the expendables.

April’s jobs report, which will capture late-March layoffs, will show cuts to 3.4 million business-services workers, including lawyers, architects, consultants and advertising professionals, as well 1.5 million nonessential health-care workers and 100,000 information workers, including those working in the media and telecommunications.

Get the fuck outta here! Those well educated, highly paid architects, IT consultants and even advertising professionals, along with LAWYERS and even those in the health-care field are to receive their pink slips? Looks like everybody had better hope that their dumb ass racist-in-chief Donald Trump comes through for them in their hour of need, otherwise, there are no premium spots left for cardboard boxes. They have all been taken. Also, homeless shelters are closed, for…you know…that ‘social distancing’ thing. And there you have it folks, Amerikkka, the land of opportunity, the land of milk and honey completely shut down over a virus that we cannot even see.

AGAIN, let me repeat! Those who thought that they were safe from layoffs due to this coronavirus pandemic are finding themselves just as fucked as the rest of us. Oh, you may have a bit more money to tide you over and your situation is most likely why your lord and savior Trump is speaking on the lie that he IS THE ULTIMATE AUTHORITY when it comes to re-opening America, but he’s not. You see, he is NOT in control. The coronavirus is and with the news coming out that there are Thousands of health care workers sickened by COVID-19 and 27 dead, CDC report says. But there’s probably more. Oh yes, there are many, many more because another report has the number of health care workers sickened with coronavirus at 20,000. But nevertheless, with a serious lack of PPE and other necessary medical supplies for those workers, more and more health care workers are going to contract coronavirus and so Trump may as well take several seats because as soon as he claims that Amerikkka is ‘open for business’, the numbers of the infected are going to skyrocket. So go right ahead and listen to that useless bag of wind and you are going to drop in a matter of days since the sick health care workers will be bending over you taking care of your sick asses while making sure that both of you succumb to coronavirus. It will be a case of the sick caring for the sick.

Coronavirus is the PERFECT STORM to bring down this diseased whore called, “Amerikkka!” My ancestors are cheering in their graves over this! They may not have lived to see this diseased whore exposed for what she really is and brought to her damn knees, but I am damn sure glad that I have. And I am loving every goddamn minute of it!

You filthy ass whites have done nothing but drone on and on about how American descendants of slavery are the faces of coronavirus deaths and if that be the case, don’t you think for one goddamn minute that we are going to go out all by our lonesome. Your damn asses are going out with us because haven’t you heard? Domestic violence is making headline news because you motherfuckers are losing it. The wife’s nagging, the kid’s are getting on your nerves, screaming about that Disney vacation they can’t take and some more shit. Ain’t no damn ‘meat’ in the grocery store. You’ve long since lost the ability to wipe your ass because you can’t find any toilet paper and that’s itching like mad and so there you sit, squirming with your dirty ass and listening to ALL of that noise in your household that’s been on lockdown for too goddamn long and now, it’s DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TIME! I knew that shit was going to ramp up and in spades because normally, the kiddies would be in school, you’d have yourself at a game and the wife would be at the spa. And you’d not see each other until bedtime and back up at em the next day, but is that the situation? Hell fucking no! So, the wife gets clapped up side the head, she’s screaming on the phone to the cops and you’re sitting down to your second case of beer and the kiddies are beating the hell out of each other over a video game. I can just see this scenario playing out all across this godforsaken planet, but especially here in the states.

And let’s not forget the suicides that are sure to follow because whites don’t and can’t do without entertainment and fantasy and since pro sports are shut down and Disney fantasy land is closed, what the hell is there for you to do but fight with whomever is in your household or suck on a gun? You’ve got so damn many, the only question is, “which one to choose?” I wonder, are the authorities going to label suicides during this pandemic as COVID-19 cases? I mean, everyone who goes to the hospital seems to die from COVID-19. No longer are heart attacks, strokes, cancer, diabetes and aneurysms killing people. They’re all dying from COVID-19 according to coroners reports. Poor coronavirus is going to get the blame for everything from layoffs to domestic violence incidents to suicides, to heart attacks and not to mention, cannibalistic rats.

Oh, did you hear that since restaurants and some grocery stores have closed all over the country, rats are now without their daily meals? Apparently, Starving, angry and cannibalistic: America’s rats are getting desperate amid coronavirus pandemic. WOW! The article goes on to say that rats are starting to take over cities all across America and are eating their young and becoming more aggressive. There have been thousands of calls about rats from Baltimore, Md to New Orleans, LA to Washington, D.C. As if that isn’t bad enough, there are reports that the bear population in national parks has exploded now that ‘human’ visitors are on lockdown. So, I guess when Trump reopens America, we’ll be hearing of whites getting mauled to death by bears.

Folks! In case you have not noticed, Amerikkka is fucked; royally and totally fucked! Ain’t capitalism mixed with racism grand? Ain’t it nice to have such an incredibly intelligent and stalwart figure as Amerikkka’s president who takes responsibility when shit happens and acts in a timely manner to mitigate the damage? Damn! My fingers gagged on that lie!

But hey, racist Amerikkka, you voted for Donald “Grab them by the pussy” Trump because the racism from whites will always win hands down every time even over their own best interests because is it in your best interests that Trump closed down the agency that Barack Obama launched to go into effect in the event of a pandemic? Is racism going to keep you lawyers in your jobs? Is racism going to make that unemployment check look any bigger? Is racism going to keep you from contemplating suicide over the potential loss of your material possessions, WHITES? Is racism stopping you from going upside your wife’s head because you’ve got season tickets to pro sports games and yet, you’re stuck at home listening to your wife nag you about her fucked up nails and hair? If and when you whites start sucking on guns, before you do, remember, it was better to vote for racism because racism is what you voted for because you ARE Donald Trump; each and every last one of you whites. You are indeed, Donald Trump and so you know exactly what he thinks of YOUR fucked up situation. It’s not impacting him and so he doesn’t give a fuck. When you thought the shit was only going to impact people who look like me, you were fine with that, but now that you know that lawyers, architects, IT workers and AD execs are not immune to COVID-19 layoffs, it’s now time to do what? Yeah! File for unemployment and sit back and realize how fucked your racist asses are and then of course when you start losing your shit, time to suck on a gun, time to find a rope and get to swinging. It’s not just people who look like me who are impacted by layoffs. Your ass is grass, as well. I’m used to the shit. But your pasty asses? Hardly! HA! I’m loving it!

And the dude who said this, “The virus shock does not discriminate across sectors as we initially thought,” – Gregory Daco, chief U.S. economist of Oxford Economics, needs to lose his damn job because dude is dumb as hell if he thought that only those who are seen as menial laborers would be impacted by this pandemic because despite all of the rhetoric, it would appear that coronavirus does not intend to discriminate. Thank you coronavirus!

Let Me Make This Clear To You Whites Who Are Talking About How “We Are In This Together Thanks To Coronavirus” WE AIN’T IN SHIT TOGETHER!

 

Whites, I’m about sick of your bullshit! All of a sudden, now that coronavirus has reared its viral head, whites are screeching and wailing that “We are ALL in this together!” What.The.Fuck. I am NOT in shit with you nasty ass whites!

You pasty assed shits need to take several seats! American descendants of slaves were thrown under the bus by you pasty assed devils since FOREVER in this shithole, but now that this virus has your asses running scared while at the same time making you sit your damn depraved, debased asses down somewhere, quarantined in your McMansions, you ain’t got shit to do but think about the shit that you can’t fucking do! GOOD! But while you’re at it, don’t get the shit twisted. Those of us who are ADOS are NOT in shit with you! You fucking white assholes moved yourselves into gated communities to get away from us. You fucking raised the rents in our neighborhoods, thus rendering us homeless as you gentrified that shit and now that coronavirus is breathing down your damn pasty necks, we’re suddenly, ALL IN THIS SHIT TOGETHER???!!! Are you worthless fucks for real??!! You’ve got the fucking balls of bulls to come up with that shit! Fuck you!!!

Ain’t no ADOS in this shit with you funky, pasty assed, filthy white motherfuckers! You’re on your damn own! You cannot stand the fact that coronavirus cannot be bought. You cannot throw your credit cards at it. You cannot impress it with your white privilege. You cannot impress it with your fucked up sense of ‘white supremacy’. You cannot drone strike it away. You cannot bomb it away. You cannot sanction it away. Hell! There’s not a goddamn thing that you can do but wait your turn to come down with coronavirus and that’s scaring the hell out of you because ordinarily, you’d be in line at Disney World or at Disneyland with your screaming hellions, but you can’t do that because coronavirus has come in and put paid to that shit! I’m loving it! I am LOVING the fact that coronavirus has got your pasty asses on the fucking run. Yeah! Run to the Hamptons. Run to the desert. Run to the mountains. Makes no difference. Coronavirus is going to find your ass and all the money in the world is NOT going to keep your pasty asses safe from what is YOUR due! You refused to pay your dues and now coronavirus is here to collect and it will. And it is far from done. You refuse to do the right thing and so the right thing is going to do you. Welcome coronavirus! Every pasty assed motherfucker’s door is open and so just go on in and settle down for a spell. Enjoy yourself coronavirus because it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of freeloading, scum sucking bottom feeders that got rich off the backs of my ancestors and now that they can do nothing with their ill gotten gains, they want to screech about how “We are all in this together!” Fuck you whites! We ain’t in shit together!

Finally, something is coming for your asses and there ain’t a goddamn thing you can do about it but wait for the inevitable. Shit must be getting to you right about now because you’ve been housebound for how long now? And your lord and savior, racist-in-chief Donald Trump knows that only too well. That’s why he’s encouraging your worthless asses to head inside a church on Easter Sunday and pray to your bullshit god to save your no account asses. It won’t do you any good because your bullshit god is just that, BULLSHIT! Unfortunately, you’ve got many ADOS going along with your fake ass religious bullshit because they’ve been fucking brainwashed by you filthy parasites, but not me. I spit on your religious shit, you goddamn monsters.

Oh you are running scared alright because this is not just a Black disease, this virus is taking your pasty asses out in droves. Life as you know is has ended. And believe me, nothing will ever be the same again, so you can just forget about that “back to normal” bullshit! This IS normal for me and those who look like me. Remember when I said in previous blogs that the poor Black homeless people who are dealing with typhus and hookworm and other major diseases would not be dealing with epidemics and shit of the like, alone? If you don’t then you can archive this blog to your heart’s content and you will most definitely find me stating that your turn was coming and voila! It’s here! Ain’t it grand? Having fun yet? I am!

Ask the ‘future’ king of England, Prince Charles, if he was rich enough to keep himself from contracting the virus. Ask the Prime Minister of the UK if he was rich enough to keep himself from contracting the virus. Ask multiple heads of state ALL across this planet were they rich enough or powerful enough to keep themselves from contracting the virus. So,  tell me whites, how’s your money helping you now? You can’t shop. You can’t go to Disney World. You can’t go watch a pro sports game. You can’t play golf. You can’t go to the spa. You can’t jet around the world and go skiing. You can’t go on a cruise. Your money is doing what for you now? You’re doing what now? Exactly! Your ass is on lockdown and pretty soon, you’re going to get antsy because having money and there’s nothing you can do with it is going to cause you to go nuts. What are you going to do when the months drag on, whites? Those parties in the Hamptons are going to get old. Those desert hideaways are going to get boring. Those mountain views are soon going to turn into raging fire views because fire season is coming. And so you are going to have to drag your pale asses down from those mountains and stop hiding out from coronavirus. So you may as well drag your dusty, pale asses on down off the mountains now and get it over with.

And in case you dumb ass whites cannot figure out why I am not upset or worried about coronavirus, it is because I have you to ‘thank’ for that. Because of YOU pasty assed monstrosities, my life has ALWAYS consisted of pain, suffering, torment, hunger, homelessness and some more shit of the like and so why should I be afraid of coronavirus?  I’m not, but you’re so fucking scared, you can hardly function. And so you will NEVER be able to understand how I can deal with this shit and millions of those who look like me are dealing with this shit because your life has not been ours. Your life has been filled with the opposite of mine and millions who look like me. I’ve lost a sister to crack that YOU pasty assed shits let loose on innocent people like me. I’ve lost multiple loved ones thanks to you pasty assed motherfuckers taking the HYPOCRITE OATH when it comes to practicing medicine on us and I could go on and on and on as in mass incarceration, a school-to-prison pipeline, income inequality, gentrification, mass homelessness, disparities in health care and the list is endless and so without further ado, let me just reiterate that we are NOT in this virus shit together white motherfuckers! As far as I am concerned, WHITES, you are on your own. Deal with the shit! You left me to deal with the shit you dealt me and so fuck you AND yours!

 

Another Good Girl Gone Bad!

Here we go, another ‘good’ girl gone bad.
And yeah, I know, the fucking world’s gone mad.

This is where I say, “I don’t give a shit!”
Who am I kidding? That’s it! I quit!!

I don’t give a good goddamn anymore!
What the fuck? I can’t even the score!

And hell no, my halo ain’t slipping.
To this fucked up world, the bird, I’m flipping.

This time I’ve just stopped giving a fuck.
To those in need, you are SO out of luck.

How many ‘good’ days have you ever had?
When has the ‘good’ outweighed the bad?

Me? I’ll never be mistaken for a SAP!
Sad and Pathetic, to hell with that crap!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’ve heard it all before!
We’ve got to feed the hungry and look out for the poor!

Go tell it on the mountain and then head to Wall Street!
And sit your ass down and accept the word, DEFEAT!

Write it all down and sell it if you can.
You ain’t fooling me, I know you got no plan.

Re-write history and what about the lies?
Who conquers who? I won’t wait for that surprise!

And who the hell says there is a human race?
I’ve looked far and wide, there ain’t a goddamn trace!

Talk shit to the dead who got nothing to lose.
They’re sitting in church, so go light the fuse.

The puppets and the zombies all dance to one tune.
All are kept in line by the goon’s platoon.

Step one foot out and you get your ass shot.
You can ‘care’ if you want, but it’s all for naught.

….and don’t come in here with no bullshit about how we’re ALL in this together. We’re not in shit together! We’re not doing a goddamn thing but pissing in the wind and as soon as you wake the fuck up and recognize, the better off your ass will be. It is fucking war! Ain’t no goddamn peace!!


As you can see, I wrote this in 2013 and not a goddamn thing has changed except that now that coronavirus is here, you whites are screeching about “We are all in this together!” FUCK IF WE ARE! I’m NOT in shit with you! This shit is coming mostly for your asses and I am damn sure NOT in shit with you white, filthy assed, no good, racist, parasitic creatures! So stop coming up to me on the streets talking that shit about us being in this shit together. You never talked THAT shit before, so don’t even fucking bother starting with that shit now! You are FUCKING ON YOUR OWN! Scared much?!! HA! I’m loving it!

Time To Celebrate Black History Month AGAIN! Yeah, We Got It Going On!

Black History Holds NO Fame!

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 hung 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 they’ll 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 your 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 sneer.

*June 25th 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, removing a critical tool to combat racial discrimination in voting.

Where shall we begin? Let us celebrate the 11% unemployment rate for Black men even though the national unemployment aka jobless rate stands at 3.7% and if your head’s not stuck up your ass, then you know that even that is a damn lie! Break out the champagne Black folks for those of you who can afford a bottle of say, Andre Cold Duck! Clink those plastic cups together and then piss in the wind because it’s all blowing back your way anyway; the shit that keeps hitting the fan, that is.

Next on our celebration list is the shit that is going down in our public education system better known as the ‘school-to-prison pipeline’ if you’re a student of color in these here United States of America where we celebrate Black History Month each and every February. This month is dedicated to showcasing the achievements of Black people in America. We are celebrating each and every single achievement that has not yet occurred but will eventually occur and we are real sure of this happening any day now.

To continue the celebrations, let us look at the child poverty statistics that are sure to impress us during these celebrations of future achievements that we are hell bent on celebrating this month. We are celebrating the fact that ‘child poverty in America is at its highest point in 20 years, putting millions of children at increased risk of injuries, infant mortality, and premature death’. And if that isn’t bad enough, ‘7 million kids still don’t have health insurance’. This is just so worth celebrating, what an achievement! What a dream as opposed to a nightmare. I wonder what that famous man who had a dream, would think of this. I seriously wonder.

But wait! There is more to celebrate this Black History Month! The good news just keeps on coming. ‘Incarceration rate for African-Americans now six times the national average’ is still making headlines among Black prisoners and their mostly white guards and the white slave patrol that arrested them for say, selling loose, un-taxed cigarettes, selling marijuana or crack while completely ignoring the white man that was buying said crack and marijuana from the guilty by birth African-American other wise known as Colored otherwise known as Black otherwise known as felon or prisoner no.1,000,034. White folks, why don’t you just lock up every single Black person at birth? It’ll save you the trouble of doing so later on since many of us will know what it feels like to be shackled just as those we are descended from knew what it felt like. And the beat goes on and we celebrate it.

And ‘here’s the Data That Shows Cops Kill Black People at a Higher Rate Than White People’, now ain’t that a bitch?! Unfortunately, Michael Brown is not here to celebrate this Black History Month with us because he was shot and killed by a cop. Twelve year old Tamir Rice is also not here this year to help us celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop while playing with a toy gun in a park. John Crawford, likewise, is not here to celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop in Wal-Mart while holding a toy gun.  Eric Garner, unfortunately, for him, was selling loose, untaxed cigarettes and that cost him his life and so he will not be joining in the celebrations. Terrance Franklin was shot and killed by cops following a traffic stop and he will not be celebrating ether. Seven year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones was shot  and killed by a cop while she slept and the charge of manslaughter against the cop that shot and killed her was dropped and so, she is not just ‘under-the-weather’, she is underground and therefore, is not able to celebrate this historic month. Let us celebrate on her behalf. Sandra Bland is not here to celebrate with us because she was hanged in a Texas jail cell. So many are not here to witness all of the achievements that we celebrate today that have not as yet occurred. But we are sure that any minute now, we shall achieve….something. Yeah! Wait on it.

Fortunately, I have found yet another statistic that gives us even more of a reason to celebrate Black history month. Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless. We have come so far this February in the year of our Lord 2020, have we not? Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population. Doesn’t that just give you a warm and comfortable, cozy feeling that those homeless people lack? These are achievements that we have here folks! Time to celebrate and to keep the momentum going. Our ancestors would be so proud of where we are today. Don’t you think? Does this not make you aware that BLACK LIVES DO NOT MATTER?!

Now, on the other hand, Tyler Perry will dress up in drag and put some Black folks to work on another Madea movie and Beyoncé will croon about a Halo for Jay-Z and Jay-Z will rap about niggas while DMX will head back to prison for drug possession, get out on probation again and then go right back in for drug possession. Viola Davis will have no problem getting cast as yet another maid after her role in ‘The Help’ and Forest Whitaker is probably all set to play yet another version of someone’s Butler since every one is well aware that us Black folks are so good at bowing and scraping and being subservient to our ‘betters’.

Finally, I’ve given you many reasons to celebrate this month. The reasons are endless and our achievements that we will watch for some time in the future are making life much better for so many of us and that is why we must enjoy this Black History Month. We have no need to march and protest like those Black people in the 1960s did. We are so past that in this here post-racial America. I mean, what we have here is a post-racial America, is it not? But nevertheless, Dr. King would be so proud as would his stalwart, fellow marchers-in-arms at the progress that we have made since his infamous, I Have A Dream speech. We shall overcome! Uh…what I meant to say is that, “We did overcome!” Now like the good little sheep you are, start celebrating all of this shit!! And look ahead to when the REAL achievements will come because surely they must come!

 

Only A Sea Of Black Faces In A Homeless Shelter In Washington D.C. Partaking Of A ‘Thanksgiving’ Meal: The Whites Continued War Against American Descendants Of Slaves

Back when I was growing up, we used to visit our relatives who had moved from Virginia to Washington, DC. We would get in cars and an entire caravan of us would head to D.C. for family get-togethers. It was called, “Lynchburg Day” because many of those who once called Lynchburg home moved to Washington, D.C. Those of us who remained behind in Lynchburg were always considered to be “The country cousins.”

I remember looking around the park where the event, “Lynchburg Day” took place and I noticed that there were so many Black people having a great time, barbecuing steaks on the grill; huge steaks. I saw ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs; the whole nine yards. The adults were having fun talking while us kids had the run of the park. No one was sitting around talking about homelessness or drug addiction or prostitution or gang activity; not any of that stuff and year after year, we would get into the cars and head to D.C. for fun and laughter with family and friends.

But something changed. Something or ‘someone’ or someTHING put an end to ALL of that. I started hearing about drugs and gangs and homelessness and prostitution and then there were no more trips to Washington, D.C. for “Lynchburg Day.” Families did not behave like families anymore. Things changed and I wondered about that because though I did know that the only constant is change, I figured that family was family and we’d all continue to treat each other as family like we used to. Nope, didn’t happen.

Fast forward to the news out of Washington, D.C. today and well, things are even worse than ever.

At a homeless shelter in D.C., a special — but bittersweet — Thanksgiving meal

Marc O’Brien was panicking.

Like millions across the country, he was in charge of preparing a Thanksgiving meal. But instead of a family or party, he stood to disappoint 400 men — many of them ravenous, some who had not eaten in days. At the Central Union Mission homeless shelter in downtown D.C., this was the most important meal of the year.

D.C. has one of the highest rates of homelessness in the country.

This is truly sad, truly sad. Washington, D.C. was once known as “Chocolate City” and now it has been gentrified and those who once called “Chocolate City” home are homeless thanks to whites coming in and tearing down rental housing that Black people at one time could afford, but who are now finding that they must move on. Black people who once owned homes in Washington, D.C., are elderly and many have passed on just like those in my daddy’s family. My daddy’s aunt used to work for the Pentagon and she owned her own home. Her daughter owned a condo in Southeast D.C. When my daddy’s aunt died, her daughter and her son sold her house and her daughter also sold her condo and moved back to Lynchburg where she recently passed away.

What I have noticed is that with the passing of the ‘old guard’, the ‘new guard’ is not faring so well. It’s like the whites were waiting on just the right time when the Black folks who were once out in the streets protesting during the Civil Rights Movement and who were responsible for successfully boycotting to get things done started getting up in age and passing on, that is when they put a new plan in action and now, it is the beginning of the end.

Everyone has been dumbed down, made lazy, apathetic and complacent by all the new technology that this generation has embraced even as the older generation would never have because they would have known better.

And so we come to this!

Richard Bell, 53, said he appreciates the effort that staff puts into the event but hopes that after two years at the shelter, this will be his last Thanksgiving here.

After losing his job in 2011, Bell fell into alcoholism and stopped being able to afford his rental apartment in Charles County, Md. His wife and daughter moved in with other family, and Bell moved into a hotel, where he attempted suicide.

Black people, once seen as strong, are now attempting suicide as a way out of the despair of being descendants of slaves in a land that never accepted us, never included us in any bill of rights, constitutional documents or anything else that gave whites all the rights to freedom, justice and the pursuit of happiness. And their happiness is at the expense of millions of American descendants of slaves who are here through no fault of our own. I have stated this before and I state it again, this is ALL done by design. None of this is by accident.

If you look down through the annals of history, you can see a pattern developing. Every single time it seemed that Black people would be able to stand on their own, the whites pulled the rug from underneath us. We built our own cities. We owned our own businesses. We had our own Wall Street. We had our Movements and what happened? The whites put an end to all of that and now look where we are; sitting up in a homeless shelter partaking of a ‘Thanksgiving’ meal and getting noticed on one day out of a 365 day year. We are touted out to have a camera pointed at us and told to smile for the camera just as our slave ancestors were stood up on auction blocks and had their ‘finer points’ pointed out to potential buyers, stripped of any dignity then as we are now because some white mission owner is preparing a meal for the poor homeless Black people who cannot make it in this white man’s reclaimed swamp once known as “Chocolate City” that at one point in time had a beloved Black mayor, who was set up by the whites, Mayor Marion Barry.

And though Washington, D.C. has a Black female mayor, Mayor Muriel Bowser, she is quite obviously, just a figurehead for what is she doing for those Black people who refuse to leave their home, Washington, D.C. even though they can no longer afford to live there? She is doing the same nothing as her counterpart a mere few miles up the road in Baltimore, MD for his Black constituents. Make no mistake, just because you see a Black face in what you would think is a position of leadership, you couldn’t be more wrong. Just ask the recently disgraced and scandal embroiled former Mayor of Baltimore, MD, Catherine Pugh, who is awaiting sentencing for her “Healthy Holly” books shenanigans. Whites played a role in her downfall, but Pugh is the only one who is taking the fall, just as deceased former Mayor Marion Barry was set up by the whites to take a fall.

Black folks, what I am trying to say to you is that we are ALL being setup by the whites to take the fall for the shit that they have done. Our lives, from cradle to grave, is a setup. We are setup to fail especially if we are outspoken and refuse to play by the white man’s rules. If you step out of line, you are dealt with, severely. Believe me, I know. Many of us know and that is why millions of us are six feet under because we refused to take the white’s shit and act like we like it. With nothing to lose, why do we still shuffle our feet and bow our heads around the whites. No amount of shucking and jiving, no amount of “Yessum boss! Yessum massa!” is going to help our situation because the whites are depraved and insane and have always been out for our blood since the first one captured our ancestors and dragged them to these shores. They have never been our friends and they will never be our friends. This you must understand, accept and act accordingly.

Some Black people look at a few Black folks who the whites have favored with fame and fortune and they think that those people are the lucky ones. Uh…no..that is so NOT true. Look at what happens when even Black people of means, somehow draw the ire of the whites who once propped them up. They tear them down; quick, fast and in a damn hurry. Look at what they did to Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Lauryn Hill, Wesley Snipes and the list is endless.

There is no man more deviant, debased and depraved than the white man and yet, what white man is sitting behind bars for what the whites claim Bill Cosby and R. Kelly has done? What happened to the #MeToo shit? Whites merely snap their finger and that shit goes away while we get put away behind bars. And whites will ‘suicide’ other whites to keep their pedophilia and sex trafficking scandals under wraps.

Like 2Pac’s lyrics say, “We ain’t meant to survive, cause it’s a set-up.” And believe me when I say this, “The whites? They ain’t never gonna let up.” Just look at the above picture. All you see is a sea of Black faces; all homeless and sitting in a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving Day, eating a donated ‘Thanksgiving’ meal with cameras surrounding them, on display for ALL to see that the white man still has to feed his “slaves.”

Because Your Ass Is White! A Re-post

Standing on the corner,
I’ve got these drugs for sale.
I turn a teacher into a ho
and I send her straight to hell.

Don’t put the blame on me.
I’m just a businessman.
I’m trying to make a living
the only way I can.

You don’t hate the motherfuckers
that sell you alcohol.
It’s all the same thing
but I’m the one who takes the fall.

My time on this here corner
maybe short, but it ain’t sweet.
I got the cops all on my ass
until I’m just a piece of meat.

I must represent my gang
so don’t cross onto my turf.
Respect the line that’s drawn.
I’m just another serf.

The white man says to me,
“nigga, keep your nose clean!”
as he steals my crack and money
and kicks me in my spleen.

I ain’t got a fancy office
like the thugs on Wall Street.
But I got to live somehow.
Everybody needs to eat.

So, I shot a motherfucker.
And a child got in the way.
I didn’t set this shit in motion.
You know who called the play.

I’m on the evening news
I took a bullet to the head.
I’m just a motherfucker
lying in the morgue, dead.

The shit won’t stop with me.
That just ain’t how it works.
They gone keep those drugs coming
because of all the perks.

How you think I got the drugs?
Did you ever wonder why
I can get a gun and drugs
and make your ass so high?

I was low on the totem pole
and I always knew the score.
Get your head from out your ass.
You know why I was poor!

I was born to be a loser;
to end up dead or in the pen.
You know the goddamn truth.
I was never meant to win.

Blame me for the corruption
that comes down from the top.
You know who calls the shots
and who protects a dirty cop.

But it’s convenient to blame me
for the violence in the hood.
And ignore the burning cross
or the Aryan Brotherhood.

You can turn and look away
from what it’s all about
because in your little white bread world,
you’ll get yours without a doubt.

There ain’t no hungry bellies,
nor are there crack hos on the prowl.
You’ve got the sweetest little setup
while the rest of us live foul.

You sit nicely in the pew
on a fine Sunday morning.
You smile and pay your tithes.
You’ve got no reason to be mourning.

Your brother, he ain’t dead
from a drive by in the night.
You don’t live that kind of life
because your ass is white!

This one bears repeating because it is just as true today as the day I initially wrote it back in April of 2015. What the fuck has changed? Not a goddamn thing except that the situation has gotten worse. Whites commit crimes and are considered “too important to jail,” and yet that shit has never been stated when it comes to descendants of slaves. Whites put ALL of this shit in motion and then sit back and exclaim over how Black people are having to survive. We were set up from the beginning of our fucked up existence in this cesspool of crime and corruption perpetrated by the whites and yet we are the ones who are behind bars; millions of us while whites get off scot-free on every criminal act they commit.

Since slavery, which continues to this very day, we have stood not one goddamn chance in what the whites have turned into a shithole what with their fucking fracking, nuclear waste dumps, cancer causing weed killer, GMO garbage that’s passing for food these days and the fucked up list is endless and yet they continue to pat themselves on their depraved backs like they’re doing everyone a goddamn favor. There is no such thing as healthcare. There is no such thing as a great standard of living for millions. There are homeless tent cities all across this cesspool. Plagues are making a comeback and will only get worse seeing as how entire towns have been flooded and their drinking water that was already loaded down with toxins has been made even more toxic by the fact of flooded waste treatment plants.

Depraved white parasites have doomed us all with their killer technology that is aimed at killing the vast majority of us and our only saving grace is the fact that the shit cannot remain up and running thanks to the hundreds of storms and tornadoes that are busily tearing that shit down. I can only hope the storms continue.

But know this whites, as you try and take us out, millions of you are going first. Millions of you will lose what you have stolen. You have seen to it that we have nothing to lose and that is exactly why I laugh when I see your shit fucked up and floating down the river. I laugh when I read the reports that state that capitalism has been ground to a halt thanks to flooded rivers that once made it possible for your products to make it to consumers. I laugh when I can only see the roofs of your palatial homes because Mother Nature decided to re-gentrify your shit with water. She’s moved your ass out of the way to make way for water. I laugh when I see pale asses sitting up in tents waiting on some federal funds from the Trump Administration and if you ever receive any funds, you’ll more than likely have been hit with yet another storm and Trump is going to get tired of bailing even your pale asses out. Just ask those who live in Puerto Rico.

And yeah! Drugs have made their way into rural areas, upscale areas and other areas that were not saturated with drugs since whites originally dumped massive amounts of crack and other drugs in Black communities and watched the shit unfold. Now the shit is unfolding in your communities and you ain’t hardly happy about that shit. Neither were we when you saturated our neighborhoods with that shit, but your nasty ass didn’t even blink over it. And I’m not even blinking over your plight. Now, you’ve got hungry bellies, growling and some more shit since your beloved racist Trump cut the hell out of the food stamp program but because he stands for exactly what you are, you still support him even though he would not even spit on your ass if it was on fire to help put it out.

Thankfully, the day has come that more and more whites are finally reaping what they have been sowing for hundreds of years. You could turn and look away at one point in time, but not anymore. That shit’s now your problem to deal with. Sink, motherfuckers, sink into that lovely brown water that’s flooded a great deal of this shithole and it shall continue because your ass is white!

He’d Get Even!

 

A child was born, dark as night,
and sent out into the world.
Everywhere he turned,
such insults, people hurled.

He took this all in stride,
grew up and became a man.
Took one look at his skin,
it was darker than a tan.

On a mountaintop, he stood,
looking out on a sea of hate.
He decided that once and for all,
he’d be the master of his own fate.

He had been followed for many a day,
even when he’d stopped to rest.
He thought he’d never feel secure,
knew that to him, this was a test.

God, they said, loved him
and he believed it for awhile.
but he carried with him, a match.
It’ll be evidence at his trial.

You see, this man, he may have snapped
on a hot day in July.
They say he lit a match or two,
but that could be a lie.

They say he took a match in hand
and lit it with intent
to burn and scorch some wood
and express his discontent.

Or maybe he got tired
of America and her shit!
And decided he’d get even
with a match that he’d just lit!

I wrote a poem similar to this one last year and only tweaked it a bit. But you can read the other one here!

This poem was written because a Black man has been arrested for starting the California wildfires that have consumed so many acres and burned so many structures and the fires are still raging even though there are also stories bandied about that fires were started by a vehicle burning up and the wind carried the flames. Nevertheless, this Black man is being charged and held in lieu of $1 million bail in connection with the wildfires. If he did start some of those fires, I for one, don’t blame him. Maybe he did snap. Maybe, he got fed up and that was the only way he knew to fight back. Do I fault him for that if this is indeed, the case? Absolutely not! And from the looks of the structures that have burned, it looks to me like no Black person lost their home or livelihood especially seeing as how the only ‘people’ who have been interviewed are ‘white’. Go figure! It would seem that ‘white’ folks want a race war and since that is the case, you may just get what you’ve been spoiling for. But remember, there is more than one way to skin a cat!

TEMECULA, CA — A Temecula man has been arrested on suspicion of starting the out-of-control Cranston Fire burning near Idyllwild, fire officials announced Wednesday night. And not only is the 32-year-old accused of starting the 4,700-acre fire Wednesday — but he’s also accused of starting four other fires in Southwest Riverside County.

Brandon N. Mc Glover was arrested Wednesday. Riverside County Sheriff’s Department records show he was booked on suspicion of five counts of arson on a structure, five counts of arson on land and three counts of maliciously setting a fire. His bail was set at $1 million.

I must say, Brandon N. Mc Glover knows how to stick it to the ‘white’ man. Burn his shit down and you’ve fucked up his day! Discommode some ‘white’ folks by rendering them homeless like the Black people who have been displaced by gentrification and you fuck up the ‘white’ man’s day. My day ain’t fucked up behind this and that is for damn sure! You see, camping is fine for ‘white’ folks when it is something they WANT to do, but when it is something they have to do…well now, that’s a different story. Ask the ‘whites’ who are still camping out in Hawaii if they still like camping out thanks to the Kilauea volcano erupting and  burying their homes in lava. Karma is a bitch, ain’t it ‘white’ folks??!! And you ain’t done receiving yours yet, so don’t even think it!

Just What I Have Been Saying All Along!

 

I usually read Margaret Kimberley’s blog over on Black Agenda Report and her latest is right on point. It is exactly what I have been saying for quite some time and in no uncertain terms. Although Ms. Kimberley does not use colorful words like I do, she manages to get her point across.

“We know that the country was and is deeply racist and that we live in an environment that literally endangers our lives. We are never safe, regardless of who occupies the white house. We also know that white people who would never consider themselves racists are in fact just that, and that we must be on guard against them. Perhaps there should be investigative reporting about their ability to compartmentalize and the pretense that allows them to feel superior despite their own foibles.”

This bears repeating:

“We know that white people who would never consider themselves racists are in fact just that, and that we must be on guard against them.”

Sure, you’ve met the white woman who has stood beside you as you protested over the fact that yet another unarmed Black man, woman or child was killed by white cops for selling untaxed cigarettes, playing with a toy gun in a park, failing to use the right turn signal and you were told by that white woman that that just wasn’t right. But did you also know that one of her best friends is married to one of the most racist cops, you’ll ever meet? No, she won’t tell you that, but she will stand there, in fake innocence and move her lips to form words that suggest she is outraged by a cop killing a nigger. She is faking her protest of the murder. And faking it she is because she is part of the problem for if not, why has she not spoken up about the fact of a cop’s racist attitude to those who could get him taken off the force? It is because she is racist; that cop is what she is.

But of course, you’ve met the guy in the company lunchroom that spouts off all the time about how many Black friends he has. Truth be told, he has far more white supremacist friends and when they get together, those two Black ‘friends’ that he claims to have are niggers all day and night because you see, he is what they are and they are what he is; there is no difference.

And surely, you have heard white people speak out against ‘white guilt’. They ask, “Why should they have ‘white guilt’ over something that occurred before they were born?” Oh, that is just too easy to answer. You don’t have ‘white guilt’ and the reason you don’t have ‘white guilt’ is because you are just as racist as your long dead ancestors; the same ancestors that whipped, shackled, raped and killed my ancestors just because they could. You are no different because if you were, we would not be dealing with the very same racism, prejudice, Jim Crow, bigotry and slavery that is still in play today. Don’t tell me that slavery is no longer practiced in America because I can and will call you, “A liar!” Over two million Black men and women are sitting inside FOR PROFIT PRISONS for having done no more than have a dime bag of weed on their person when some racist cop rolled up on them and the white man that was buying the weed from them was allowed to go on his merry way.

If you whites of today were any different from those that spawned your ass, gentrification would not be rearing its ugly head in cities that used to house mostly Black folks in them. Whenever you feel ‘discommoded’, the first thing you do is move whomever is in your way out of your way to make you have a better day and so if you were not racist, you’d think twice about displacing people who have been in their homes for decades but because you’ve now chosen to live there, their rents have exploded and they are no longer able to reside in the area, thus enabling your sorry ass to come in and take over and make it ‘yuppy’ or ‘preppy’. And yet, you have the nerve to scream that you should not be hearing about ‘white guilt’. You don’t hear about ‘white guilt’ because such as you are, you have no such qualms in the first damn place. You aren’t wired to feel guilty about a goddamn thing because your white privilege renders you incapable of feeling guilt. You are just as privileged as your ancestors were who crossed oceans to enslave those who did not look like them and to this very day, the same applies.

The Indians indigenous to America, dying like they are, are a direct result of the fact that you feel no ‘white guilt’. The Black people in America, who were steered by whites to take out subprime mortgage loans even though they qualified for prime mortgage loans and lost their homes, are a direct result of the fact that you feel no ‘white guilt’. The Maoris of New Zealand, who, to this very day, have no political representation whatsoever and suffer mass incarceration, are a direct result of the fact that you feel no ‘white guilt’. The Aborigines of Australia, who were pushed off their land and who are still treated with contempt to this very day by those who stole their land, are a direct result of the fact that you feel no ‘white guilt’. And what do all of these groups have in common? What was stolen from them by YOUR ancestors is still stolen from them today. They were fucked up by the likes of you and they still are. It began with your ancestors and continues with you! And so how in hell are you any different from those who spawned you? You’re not! But you should have “no white guilt,” you say? When have you ever? You’re never guilty of a goddamn thing; benevolent, kind and humanitarian as you claim to be. And we all know that’s a lot of rot! So, spout your nonsense to someone who may stupidly believe it, but I’m certainly not buying what you’re selling. No one is asking something of you that you are incapable of to begin with. All that these people wanted from you was for you to leave them the hell alone in the first goddamn place and if not that, at least stop making life so hard for them now, even after your ancestors fucked them up! But you can’t even do that!

And lastly, there’s not a goddamn thing supremacy like about any of you! That is the biggest lie of all! How can a race of people who collectively engage in genocide, racism, pedophilia, molestation, annihilation, confiscation of the land of others, slavery, war, gentrification, mass imprisonment of certain ethnic groups and the list is endless ever get anywhere near the word, “supremacy?” You cannot! But you’re brazen creatures, you are, with the balls of bulls and in this instance, I would not take that as a compliment because the last thing I’d ever do is compliment the likes of you! And as for the Black folks out there who consort with whites, I can only shake my head over your willful ignorance, stupidity and insanity in crawling into bed with an enemy so evil and so vile, hell would vomit them back up!

Another Day, Another Blog Fight!

 

I just cannot let things go. And I know that I cannot go on a one woman ‘set the record straight’ crusade, but on the other hand, I just gotta call out mess when I see it. And so, without further ado here is another chapter in my never ending quest to awaken the brain dead.

I was reading a blog post titled, “Is The Media The Real Enemy of America?… Take a Closer Look…” and I took exception to some of what I read and I posted a comment. And as usual, things deteriorate after I comment. I wonder, why is that? I really don’t. I know why. That was rhetorical, of course. But before I digress any further, this is what I took exception to.

Reince Priebus, White House chief of staff, firmly suggested we take seriously Trump’s authoritarian statement of the media being the enemy of America. In actuality, these journalists who Trump so routinely lambasts, the result of his fantasy notion of a dark covert operation enacted to depose him as the reigning king, are in fact, not our enemies at all.

Seriously? “The media is not our enemy?” I almost broke down and wept over this little jewel. Since when has the media spouted anything other than recycled garbage? The media, as we know, is owned, lock, stock and barrel by a few corporate moguls who are quite determined that the American populace should remain clueless and unaware of what is really going on. We have been fed fake ass news for decades. It is only with the advent of the internet that we have been able to, thanks to alternative news sites, get some idea of what is actually going down. The ‘mainstream media’ has never been our friend and for once, Trump was right, the media is our enemy!

Below is the comment that I posted to the blog.

This entire post is absolute hypocrisy and an absurdity. The media is anything but fair and balanced. The media is owned by a handful of corporate moguls. There are no independent, unbiased newspapers, TV news shows and the like and I just love the last sentence:

“we must discern between what our country has always stood for since the day our forefathers set foot on our golden shores, as opposed to Trump’s vision of America”

You mean when some men and their women who were fed up with paying taxes in England embarked on a journey to find another land to lay claim to, kill off the majority of the original inhabitants and then go in search of free ‘slave’ labor to build up said stolen land? Is this what you meant by ‘our forefathers set foot on golden shores’? Because my forefathers were slaves and this shore was not so ‘golden’ to them since the ‘forefathers’ you speak of were themselves, slave-owning hypocrites who loudly spoke of ‘living as free men rather than die as slaves’ all the while brandishing a whip over the heads of their slaves. Talk about hypocrisy, this is the very definition.

I have never seen so many ‘white’ people up in arms over what epitomizes them in all my days. Trump is every single last one of you if you were to be honest. Look in the mirror, Trump is staring right back at you! And this is why when you look at pictures of the protests, hardly any ‘Black’ faces are in the crowds. We deal with all of you ‘Trumps’ on a daily basis and see no need to protest Trump. What would be the point? He is everywhere we turn and not just in the Oval Office.

———————————————————————————

Of course, all hell broke loose after that! And below is the response to my comment.

Since you have chosen to turn my blog into a racial issue, I feel it only fair to respond. I do have to ask first. Is this what you always do? Sounds like maybe. Contrary to your belief, I do not see Trump when I look in a mirror. I see the opposite or I would not be so adamant in my stance against virtually everything he stands for. It would appear to me, since you have lumped me under your single myopic category of “all white people”, perhaps you are the one who needs to spend some time in self-reflection. You’ve made your racial overtones quite obvious even though the intent of the article had nothing to do with racism. Yes, I fully understand there were slaves in early America, just as there were in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe, but to hear you explain yourself, every white person alive today is somehow responsible for these atrocious sins of the past. I agree the actions of our forefathers were inhumane in this respect and it makes me quite ill to think that any human, anywhere, possessed such a high level of immorality as to enslave another human, regardless their color. Did you realize that many of the Irish were also held as slaves? Some of them were my relatives so I guess I should lash out at people living centuries later as well. But I won’t though. I am astute enough to realize these people had nothing to do with that, and I am certain if I were to ask them, they would agree how horrible it was.

I prefer to think the world has moved forward since those days, but some people can’t seem to get past things that happened way before they were even born. Our forefathers were wrong. So was the rest of the world at that time. Despite the fact, they came to America to escape what they could no longer contend with in their countries of origin, and yes, because of the historical times they lived in, slavery was an unfortunate part of that. It took many years to right the wrong of slavery, and many “white people” died in the battles for their unconditional freedom. In fact, most of the soldiers who gave their lives for the abolishment of slavery were white.

I served in the military for 14 years and fought side by side with people of all colors. We had each other’s backs and we never questioned where we individually came from, what our religion was, or where our ancestors were born. None of that mattered. We were simply people, united together for the same causes. We had no vision of black versus white. Most veterans don’t, but I’m sure you never served so you probably don’t realize that.

As far as the media goes, as I have written about before, they all lean either left or right which is why it is so imperative to read more than one sources take on something before determining an educated appraisal of the truth. They all report about the same things so it shouldn’t be all that difficult for you to do.

Please. Next time you choose to respond to one of my blogs, how about staying on topic and not taking things where they were never intended to go. Trump does that.

And just so you know, I, or anyone else for that matter, cannot change the color of our shoreline.

Peace to you and yours. And I truly mean that.

And the blog author did not finish there. Another post was put up titled, “Racial Tension in Trump’s America. What Are You Going To Do About It?” and I got an honorable mention. I am feeling quite humbled. I am such an inspiration to many, it would seem. I just love it.

In a previous blog, I made reference to America’s golden shores as being the landing place of our forefathers, using a description I have heard repeated many times throughout my 65 years, not giving the phrase a second thought. However. America’s forefathers were not the focus of the blog, and it had not a thing to do with our shoreline. It was about the media. Who to believe. Who not to believe. It’s a question on all of our minds.

As has become increasingly the norm in this year of your higher power 2017, one reader chose to hang on the words “golden shores”, using this strictly literary phrase as ammunition for twisting the media related blog into a racial onslaught. Needless to say, I was caught way off guard.

I declare, I seem to catch people off guard all the time! I am SO bad!

This person stated how the golden shores were not so golden for slaves who arrived chained and shackled in the hulls of huge sailing vessels. How can anyone with half a heart disagree? I certainly can’t. Maybe Ben Carson can since he believes these “immigrant” slaves were so full of hopes and dreams they were about to burst. The person’s response did not stop there, as you will read in a direct quote below. All this being said, I can in no way assume responsibility for the sins of anyone’s past.

No, he cannot be responsible for the ‘sins of anyone’s past’ but he can be responsible for when the present is a reflection of the past and there really is no difference between the two. So, I shall just post my response to this.

————————————————————————————————–

Well, I guess I should thank you for the honorary mention but there has been racial tension in America long before Trump stepped foot inside the Oval Office and if anyone is not aware of this, then all they need do is to unbury their head from in the sand. Racist drug policies are responsible for why 2.3 million mostly Black men and women are cooling their heels in ‘for profit’ prisons.

When crack was first introduced into ‘Black communities’ decades ago, there was no hue and cry over this. It was decided that a ‘War on Drugs’ would be declared and those who were addicted would be locked up along with those who sold the drugs. Now, along comes heroin in rural ‘white’ America, and now, the addiction of white folks is a most horrible ‘medical’ epidemic. It is now time for the CDC to investigate and report its findings on what is killing ‘white’ folks all across America; especially in areas that normally are not perceived as problematic, unlike the inner cities. Heroin has been problematic for the city of Baltimore for decades and no hue and cry was raised over this because of who resides in Baltimore; namely Black people. But everyone gets their panties in a bunch when drugs start killing ‘whites’ and don’t lock them up, get them some help.

Everything in America IS about race and there is no escaping that fact, if your head’s not buried in the sand, that is. You cannot escape this. And I also noticed how you go on and on about your military service. I would never, ever thank anyone of any skin tone for their so-called ‘service to this country’ because what service would that be? Heading over to foreign lands to kill people who have personally done you no harm? Operating a drone from thousands of miles away from a target that’s been declared, a ‘bug’ and watching a ‘bug splat’ once that drone has struck its target and those surrounding it which has also included innocent women and children attending wedding parties in Yemen and Afghanistan?

And if anyone is unsure as to why America’s military is still in Afghanistan, then, please feel free to read any one of my many posts about the fact that poppy production has skyrocketed in Afghanistan since U.S. and NATO forces arrived and took over. Please feel free to read my post, “The War In Afghanistan Is Not Over!” and please, don’t stop there.

I suppose you have never heard the word ‘gentrification’ and so you don’t know what that means. Gentrification is when rich ‘white’ folks declare an inner city, that once housed mostly Black folks, to be the new ‘promised land’ for them and so they promptly increase rents by building high-end condos, thus making it impossible for those who used to reside there to continue. Washington, D.C. is no longer known as ‘Chocolate City’ for this very reason. The Black people who used to live in D.C. have had to either become homeless or flee to southern states and I do know that many of them did head south and right into even more deep-seated racism because I am from the south and so I know about this, first hand. The Black people who remain in D.C. are in homeless shelters because D.C. has always been their home and they cannot think of going anywhere else. Besides, what would be the point when gentrification is rearing its ugly head everywhere?

The Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Brotherhood and other skinhead groups did not just start up when Trump was elected. And who instigated the racial tensions that result from Klan marches through main streets in cities in America? If slavery and all it entailed is over and done with, then why was there a need for a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his non-violence stance of marching to gain Civil Rights for Black people? And who shot him? If whites were not so racist and racism was actually annihilated with the so-called ending of slavery, then there would have been no Jim Crow laws on the books. There would have been no ‘colored only’ signs and Selma-to-Montgomery marching, Black church bombings and I suppose Dylann Roof is just a figment of my imagination, but isn’t he the one who went inside a church and shot it up and killed nine Black churchgoers? I do believe this happened long before Donald Trump was residing in the White House. And Tamir Rice was gunned down two seconds after ‘white’ cops showed up as he was playing with a toy gun in a park and yet whites take their children to gun ranges and it has been reported that a white child shot the gun range instructor, but no one shot a white child holding a gun, did they? But I suppose you think that Tamir Rice would have been just fine if he had taken his toy pistol to a gun range. Yeah, I’d buy that.

So no, I’m not the one who is perpetuating racism, bigotry and prejudice. We all know who is but you don’t like what you see when you look in the mirror and that is not on me. You own this and you know it. I cannot deny you a loan because I don’t own a bank. I cannot deny you housing because I don’t own an apartment building. I cannot experiment on you because I am not a doctor. But all of these things happen to us because we, ourselves were owned and as we all know, the slaves were kept dumb on purpose and what has changed because even you must have heard of the school-to-prison pipeline whereas inner city children are being sent straight from the classroom to a jail cell because education in inner cities is sadly lacking and that is why private schools are all the rage among whites who can afford to send their children to those schools, Black people cannot because we are busily fighting against discrimination in the form of loans at banks called ‘predatory lending’ whereas Wells Fargo deliberately steered prime mortgage loan borrowers who were Black to subprime mortgage loans even though they qualified for prime mortgage loans and those who worked for Wells Fargo called the Black customers, ‘Mud people’ and called the bad loans they gave them, “Ghetto Loans.” Now, how is that on us? I could go on and on, but some people, like you, refuse to see what is right in front of you because when you do, you must then acknowledge your role in all of this because believe me, those who enslaved my ancestors, their progeny still have that same mindset today. You are one and the same. And I stand by that statement.

You titled this post, “Racial Tension in Trump’s America. What Are You Going To Do About It?” and so am I to believe that my comment on one of your previous posts is the reason for this? I am not that naïve.

—————————————————————————————————————————————–

Let me just add that I don’t go looking to get into arguments. I really don’t. And I am not at all trying to be confrontational. What I am tired of is the fact that when we look around us, we cannot help but see that many of our problems stem from the fact that the more things change, the more they stay the same. If ‘white’ people were in fact any different from those they are descended from, would this country be in the condition it is in today? Slavery did not go anywhere. Prison is the new slave pen and cops are the slave patrols because there are millions of Black people locked up behind bars and for what? Because they got high? Because they sold a dime bag of weed? Uh…no! It is because the ‘whites’ still maintain that Black people should toil for nothing. ‘Whites’ still maintain that Black people are not truly human. And why to this very day, do ‘whites’ have a problem with our identity? They cannot figure out if they should call us niggers, negroes, colored, African-Americans or Blacks. Why is that? How many labels or identifiers have the whites had in the past four hundred plus years? We are still dealing with labels and identifiers but we are to believe that we are being treated equally because the ‘whites of today are so different from their ancestors?

Why is that if we have come so far since the first slave ships arrived on the shores of this stolen land? If today’s ‘whites’ are so different from their ancestors, then why has the Klan not disbanded? Why are we still watching Klan members march down main streets in ‘post-slavery/racial’ America? Why is it that every day some ‘white’ cop is beating the shit out of an unarmed Black man, woman and child? Why is it that every single time the U.S. Department of Justice gets off its ass long enough to investigate police departments all across America, the U.S. Department of Justice comes back with a ‘scathing’ report that states what we all know; that the police department investigated was rife with legitmate police brutality complaints, police misconduct, racial profiling and the list is endless and these ‘crimes’ are overwhelmingly against descendants of slaves? Which brings me to another point, if you want to call me something, then call me what I am, a descendant of slaves because that is exactly what I am. But you won’t do that because it reminds you of how I came to be here and you want me to believe that my ancestors immigrated here alongside yours. You’re even trying to re-write history books to include this. Just ask Mc-Graw Hill textbook publishers.

So, yeah…let’s keep spreading the lies that slavery is over and racism exists only because I want to blame all ‘white’ people today for what their ancestors put into play hundreds of years ago. No, I am blaming you for continuing to perpetuate what your ancestors put into play because if you weren’t still doing it, then why is there a school-to-prison pipeline? Why are those cops who are your brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, mothers and fathers killing mine? Why is there gentrification? Why was crack just fine when it was introduced into Black neighborhoods and incarceration was touted as the cure but now that ‘whites’ are overdosing and dying of heroin, that is a medical condition that needs some understanding and rehab? Why are the slave patrols, now known as cops, not found guilty of murder when they kill innocent Black men, women and children? Why are millions of Black men and women sitting in ‘for-profit’ prisons? Why is TV ‘whitewashed’ just as (HIS)tory is? Why are Black people the continued subjects of medical experimentation? Just ask Johns Hopkins Hospital why they are being sued for a lead paint study whereas they only used Black inner city children and this occurred recently? And why did they conduct experiments on Henrietta Lacks’ cancer cells without her knowledge? Why? Because she was a Black woman, but in the eyes of today’s ‘whites’, she was still not human and her relatives are also suing the hell out of Johns Hopkins Hospital. So, don’t give me any bullshit about my throwing you lot in with each other because if you did not belong there, we would not be in the condition we are in today, still enslaved!

And one final observation, why throw in that little message about there having been slavery in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe?

 Yes, I fully understand there were slaves in early America, just as there were in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe

That does in no way negate the fact of slavery in America. I am not in Africa, the UK or Europe,  I am in America and so my scope is limited as to what I can speak of  in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe. So, I guess what you are saying is that since there was enough slavery to go around, why shouldn’t America take it up as well? Oh, we all know the answer to that. America was damn sure as hell not about to take the ‘high road’ and still hasn’t!
