R. Kelly and Michael Jackson: What’s not being discussed — Sevyn Scott

 

By: Sevyn Scott March 7, 2019 In case you haven’t kept up with the never ending drama, R. Kelly was busted once again for his kiddie antics. In February, he was indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of four alleged victims which is considered a class 2 felony and can serve up […]

What’s not being discussed is why Harvey Weinstein, who in May, was arrested in New York on charges of rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct related to interactions with two women is not making headlines. What is also not being discussed is why there are hundreds of white men who have been accused of rape, criminal sex acts, sex abuse, groping and sexual misconduct but have not had their lives put front and center, been interviewed by Gayle King, have been sent to prison as is the case with Bill Cosby or is being dragged from the grave to be vilified all over again as is the case with Michael Jackson.

Where is the public outrage over these white male parasitic leeches who have all been accused of some form of sex abuse and sexual misconduct?

and the list is endless.

So, what’s really going on? What’s going on is that white men can get away with being sexual deviants because who controls the narrative? White men. Black men and their indiscretions must be touted out at every opportunity even upon death.

But know this, no one has a more deviant nature than the white man for his deviance knows no bounds. Even when his deviant shit hits the fan, it merely settles on the floor and is swept out the door. Who writes the history books? Exactly! And that is why the white man’s filth is (HIS)story. If there is no 24/7 news coverage of it, who is concentrating on it? Hence the reason why there is 24/7 news coverage of a Black man’s indiscretions.

Whites have long heralded the Black man as a sexual predator while Black women are encouraged to engage in sexual relations with white male deviants and the narrative remains the same. While their shit gets swept out the door, a Black man’s sex life gets lit the fuck up in an attempt to get everyone to believe the narrative put out by the white man that only Black men are sex addicts and Black women are sex objects. These are outrageous, bald-faced lies!

Halle Berry was married to Eric Benet and she claimed he wanted sex all the time and of course, Eric Benet stated that he was a sex addict and got treatment for it. Meanwhile, Berry went on to a Canadian, who impregnated her and who has tried to take her for everything she is worth and she ended up leaving his ass. Then she decides to try out one of those French motherfuckers, who also impregnated her and who she is now divorced from. So it would seem that Eric Benet was the least problem for her ass.

Likewise, Janet Jackson, who fears for her child’s safety when the child is visiting with the father, Wissam Saleh Al Mana, a Qatari business magnate, she, apparently, is not happy with what she went all the way to Qatar to find. That slut had to go all the way to Qatar to meet her baby daddy who she then turned around and had to call the police for a welfare check on her son while he was in the custody of her baby daddy. Next time, stick with your own kind! And Halle Berry needs to take note of this as well.

What all of us who make up the Black collective fail to understand or to realize is that we have a common enemy and that enemy is the white parasitic leech in ALL forms, female, male, transgender and whatever else its claiming to be changed into on any given day. I guess, a goat next.

While many of us are busy buying into the bullshit about how depraved Bill Cosby, Michael Jackson and R. Kelly is, who is doing a goddamn thing about ALL of the white male deviants that are listed above beginning with Harvey Weinstein and not ending there? Where are the interviews with Gayle King with Harvey Weinstein sitting somewhere trying to justify what he is accused of? Joel Kramer? James Franco? Steve Wynn? Brett Kavanaugh? Vincent Cirrincione? David Copperfield? Tom Brokaw? Paul Haggis? Mike Germano? Andrew Creighton? Peter Martins? Corey Lewandowski? Chuck Close? Charles Dutoit? Jack Latvala? T.J. Miller? Gene Simmons? Andrea Ramsey? Jerry Richardson? Chris Matthews? Brad Kern? Andrew Duncan? Morgan Spurlock? Eric Alexander Hewitt? Ken Friedman? Dan Johnson? Eric Weinberger? Heath Evans? Ryan Lizza? Tom Ashbrook? Mario Batali? Cade Hudson? Jon Heely? Joe Alexander? U.S. Appeals Court Judge Alex Kozinski? Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, Bryan Singer? Donald J. Trump?

Need I continue with the list? I didn’t think so! So no, white males are not sexual deviants, are they? They’re just fine, upstanding, good ole wholesome white men? Is that right? Well, tell that to the men and women who have accused those bastards of rape, criminal sex acts, sex abuse, groping and sexual misconduct. Tell them that shit! But where is the accountability from them? Why aren’t they making headlines, continuously for their criminal sex acts, sex abuse, rape, sexual misconduct and some more shit of the like? Because they control the narrative. They control the script. They write the laws that allow them to break said laws while at the same time enforcing said laws against those whom they have accused of doing exactly what they stand accused of. How sick is that? Now, who is the sexual deviant here? The accused who is paying for any crime he may or may not have committed or the accused who will never be brought before a ‘judge’ to answer for what he has been accused of?

Black folks, there comes a time when we need to take a step back and look at the big picture and the big picture is that there has always been a war being waged against us by our mortal foe; the white parasitic leeches. They are ramping up that war and we as a much put upon group need to step up our game and ‘circle the wagons’. This is US versus them and those ‘thems’ ain’t fucking human and so have not one iota of compassion, empathy or humanity. They don’t even have a soul. They are monsters! Believe what the hell they say at your own peril! Lie down with that vile and atrocious shit at your own peril. Throw your own kind under the bus at your own peril because if we listen to what the white media throws at us about how depraved our Black men are while those pale parasitic leeches crawl and slither away from the vile ass shit they do, then we will deserve everything that those parasites are about to fling our way. We never made it off the plantation! You can’t see that? We are still on the plantation together! Now is not the time to denounce our own. Now is not the time to get on the “Fuck up the Black man” bandwagon that the pale parasitic leeches are dragging around Amerikkka. Donald “Grab Them By The Pussy” Trump was elected president and white so-called female parasites knew this before they voted for him. They then turn around and act quite shocked when he nominates Brett Kavanaugh to the highest court in the land, but yet, Bill Cosby is THE problem? Deceased Michael Jackson is THE problem? R. Kelly is THE problem? Neither Bill Cosby, nor deceased Michael Jackson, nor R. Kelly are/were in any position to lay down the law in this stolen land. Brett Kavanaugh can and so can Donald Trump, but what has happened to those two? Not a goddamn thing and it won’t. Now is the time to ‘band’ together and push back against this bullshit! It is now or never! That’s what’s NOT being discussed!

 

 

Other Prominent White Supremacists Are Calling For The Resignation Of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam Over A Photo That Depicted What He Really Is, Just Another Coward In A Sheet And Hood And A Fan Of Black Shoe Polish On His Face

Hillary “Lock ALL Blacks Up!” Clinton is all but foaming at the mouth while calling for the resignation of Virginia’s governor, Ralph Northam over a photo recently come to light on his medical school yearbook page. This coming from a woman who claimed that Black youth were ALL SUPER PREDATORS WHO NEEDED TO BE BROUGHT TO HEEL! Seriously?!! Hillary Clinton really wants to feign outrage over Ralph Northam’s KKK outfit and Black face photo op?

“We also have to initiate an organized effort against descendants of slaves…. They are not just ex-slaves anymore. They are often the kinds of fierce Black motherfuckers that are called super predators. No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel, and the president has asked the FBI to launch a very concerted effort against descendants of slaves, everywhere.” – Hillary Clinton

Hillary and Bill Clinton’s ‘concerted efforts’ consisted of locking up as many descendants of slaves as they could and so is it any wonder that there are over 2.5 million descendants of slaves locked behind prison walls? No indeed not. I get so goddamn sick and tired of stomp down flaming racists pretending to feign outrage over what some other stomp down flaming racist does. What is the point in protesting the likes of your worthless racist ass? Descendants of slaves are well aware that none of you racists are any different from the next because if you were, we would not be in the situation we are in as it pertains to low economic and educational achievements, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass homelessness, gentrification, guns and drugs distributed in our few remaining neighborhoods teeming with prostitution and drug addiction and the list of the like is endless. So Virginia governor Northam decked out in a KKK outfit or in ‘Black face’ is not news to me. I only wish it were.

Northam’s hour-long news conference about a racist photo showing one person dressed in blackface and another in the Ku Klux Klan’s signature white hood and robes in his medical school yearbook page was an inflection point in the saga that now drags into its third day. The bizarre press conference at the governor’s mansion featured denials that he ever dressed up in a KKK robe and hood, pledges that he was never drunk enough to forget a situation like that and a revelation that Northam once did darken his face to resemble Michael Jackson during a dance contest in 1984.

“I believe now and then that I am not either of the people in this photo,” Northam said. “This was not me in that picture. That was not Ralph Northam.”

But the press conference raised more questions than it answered, including how Northam could admit he was in the photo on Friday before taking it all back on Saturday. And why he thought it would help to admit he had once dressed up in blackface as a way to resolve questions about the yearbook photo that features someone in blackface.

On Friday, the governor admitted that he was in the photo, but neglected to state if he was the one in the KKK outfit or if he was sporting ‘Black face’ after having just graduated from medical school, swore an oath to “Do no harm,” and then proceeded to hang his “The doctor is in” shingle up and make sick Black folks, well? And of course we are to believe that Ralph Northam is the only white piece of shit that has done this. He is an anomaly and not the norm? Is this what we are to believe by all the racists calling for Northam’s resignation as if his actions were an absolute and complete surprise to ALL the other racists who have done exactly what Northam has done, only their photos have yet to surface or have been destroyed so as not to share the limelight with Northam?

Gov. Ralph Northam admits he was in 1984 yearbook photo showing figures in blackface, KKK hood

RICHMOND —Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) on Friday acknowledged appearing in a “clearly racist and offensive” photograph in his 1984 medical school yearbook that shows a man in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan robe.
“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now,” he said. “This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment.”

But now governor Northam is suffering from amnesia since one day he admits that he is in the racist photo and the next day he “believes now and then that he is not either of the people in the photo.” It is quite obvious that governor Northam is not well-versed in doing damage control or either his handlers have intentionally threw him under the bus for how can he effectively govern a state when he appears to be suffering from a mental defect? Donald Trump is too but no one has called for his resignation and so it would appear that white men who suffer from severe mental defects should not be called to resign since every single white man who is in politics is suffering from a severe mental defect for if they are not why then is this country descending rapidly into a hell of their making?

There should be no calls for the resignation of Virginia governor Ralph Northam, just as there should be no calls for the resignation of Donald Trump because where would we find a white man who is anything other than that which is depicted in the above photo blatantly displayed in a medical school yearbook? Descendants of slaves literally put their lives in the hands of flaming racists when we go to the doctor. We put our lives in the hands of stomp down flaming members of the Ku Klux Klan when we meet with a lawyer over a personal injury lawsuit. We put our lives in the hands of monsters when we go before judges who, before donning that black robe, just stepped out of a white robe with a hood attached to it. And yet whites cannot for the life of them wonder why descendants of slaves are a ‘thankless lot’? What the hell should we be thanking you for? For having dragged us over here? For having enslaved us? For having whipped and shackled and raped our ancestors? For having experimented on us even as those experiments continue to this day? We are a people who are without a grain of hope because our lives are at the mercy of warped, twisted, sick and deranged, psychopathic, depraved sociopaths and there is none among the lot of you that this does not apply to. You ALL own this, pink-assed motherfuckers! So sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because you are nothing more than an opportunist who sees a chance to denounce what another of your kind has done only because he didn’t properly cover his shit up or destroy it. You want your fucked up political party in control and so you will pretend for five minutes that you are shockingly appalled over the devil we see when you are just as evil and fucked up as Ralph Northam. We are not fooled by your antics, not for one goddamn second!

Hillary Clinton had the goddamn unmitigated gall to refer to Black youth as ‘SUPER PREDATORS’ when there is no greater SUPER PREDATOR on this planet than those of the pasty-assed variety since who other than those parasites have managed to slither all across this planet stealing, enslaving, raping, pillaging and committing other atrocities all in the name of democracy and humanitarianism when those two words would refuse to even stand side by side with evil so depraved, it should not even exist? You self-righteous, holier-than-thou, stinking, steaming piles of hypocrisy, shut the fuck up! Virginia’s governor Ralph Northam need not step down since what would take his place would be his clone sporting ‘Black face’ underneath a fucking white hood! History has proved time and time again that the white man is the enemy to every blade of grass, every mammal and fish in the ocean, every animal on land and every pitiful descendant of slaves at the mercy of those twisted demons.

But all of a sudden, now that the shit has hit the fan over Northam’s photo, Eastern Virginia Medical School is now going to review their yearbook policy to figure out how this happened.

“In concert with our Board of Visitors’ leadership, I will direct that an external investigation be conducted as soon as possible to review all of our past yearbooks, determine the processes for publishing those yearbooks; discover what, if any, administrative oversight was exercised; examine our campus culture; and provide recommendations for future actions,” school President Dr. Richard Homan said in a statement posted to the school’s website.

“We will move quickly to assemble an appropriate panel to conduct this investigation — a panel of advocates for diversity and inclusion representative of our greater community, including African Americans and other people of color; a diverse panel that can apply a critical eye to this issue,” he added.

Now, there is going to be an ‘external investigation’, now there is going to be a ‘panel of advocates’, now there is going to be talk about ‘diversity and inclusion’, now there is going to be representation of ‘African Americans’ when this photo was initially placed in Eastern Virginia Medical School’s year book in 1984 and now THIRTY-FIVE years later, it is finally time for an investigation. We all should know that this investigation is a crock of shit seeing as how it is the year 2019 and they are just getting around to launching an investigation but only after one of their students is being publicly shamed over his yearbook’s photo choice. And newsflash, people who come here from Africa do not need ‘representation’ and descendants of slaves will never receive ‘representation, due process, or inclusion’ because we are Amerikkka’s shame and guilt, those Africans who willingly come here are not! We will always feel the lash of the whip. We will always be the brunt of racist jokes. We will always suffer for a crime we did not commit. We will always submit our bodies to be experimented on by those who think it funny that we suffer at their hands and die. We will always be the shame of Amerikkka no matter what you do to us because you cannot erase the truth no matter how hard you try. You are what you are. It is bred into you and you freely accept the brand of racism, prejudice, hatred and bigotry that you market because you are an atrocity that is no different from what sired you. Even as you state that you should not be held accountable for what your ancestors put in play, yes you should because you uphold and carry their vile legacy forward every single day and you do it with great relish, just as they did.

And so no, I am never surprised over the vile and atrocious shit that ‘surfaces’ whenever some other racist has an agenda which in this case was the so-called umbrage taken over Northam’s stance on late-term abortions. Northam’s racist picture did not surface because another racist suddenly had an awakening; an epiphany, Northam’s racist picture surfaced because of an alleged agenda over abortion, ‘alleged’ because what racist even cares about the life of a child? When whites will hand their children guns at the age of 7, how on earth could they then turn around and scream and wail against abortion? All whites are defective since you are too busy trying to destroy us than even attempt a cure for what ails you; racism, prejudice, bigotry, hatred and a predilection for murder. But then, without those defects, you wouldn’t exist because they are the essence of you. And that is why you must destroy humanity because you view humanity as an existential threat to your existence.

There is nothing on this planet that can make whites happy since they can have all that money can buy and yet what do they do with it? Build bombs to destroy and kill. Enslave, steal and plunder. Wage war and induce suffering. Destroy the planet while claiming “Victory!” Go ‘vegan’ while killing animals for human consumption. Wipe out entire Indigenous tribes just because they can. “Go green” while buying an SUV. Yes, you are defective and because you are, those of us who are ‘humanity defined’ suffer for it. We are at the mercy of monsters and so save your vile breath! Ralph Northam is no different from the rest of you depraved, defective, monstrous sociopaths!

We Celebrate Memorial Day!

We celebrate Memorial Day in honor of blood spilled.
And we stand silently by and watch those coffins, filled
with the bodies of dead soldiers who once knew joy
but then lined up as though they were a tin soldier toy.

We take this day to solemnly give thanks and praise
to those who willingly reduced on this earth, their numbered days.
What a wonder it is to be alive and to show our gratitude
while those who served this country lie in glorious solitude.

As we head to the store to buy flags made in Vietnam
to bestow upon the grave of the sacrificial lamb,
we honor the memory of every unknown soldier
by giving him a neighbor to lie beside him, shoulder to shoulder.

Why should we cease to inscribe names on yet another wall,
since it is so easy to produce another soldier to heed war’s call?
No, we must never truly show our gratitude for our war weary dead,
and to those whose body lives while their mind died instead.

So, eat your hotdogs and your apple pie and wave your flag
while another soldier is soon to be placed in a body bag.

And here we go again! Taking a day to honor our war dead while still at war and so what have we learned? Not a goddamn thing! Monday, Trump’s depraved ass will solemnly place a wreath at the tomb of ‘The Unknown’ soldier; ‘The Unknowns’. And just which soldier did he know? What soldier did Obama or Bush know, either Bush, for that matter? Trump, after having just recently dropped the Mother Of All Bombs on Afghanistan and declared that more soldiers are necessary to fight some bogeymen that the U.S. trained and/or caused to be unleashed on the Middle East by way of the CIA will ‘borrow’ some dignity from somewhere just long enough to get through the hypocritical ceremony of the placing of the wreath. And then, it’s off to golfing and ordering some Big Macs.

Oh, how we really mean it when we “Thank a service man/woman for their service to this country” while we continue to add to their numbers because hardly any of us know a soldier who got him/herself killed in the line of ‘duty’ because it has always been some poor schmuck who was too dumb to understand that he’s still poor after having signed his life away and for what? Not a goddamn thing! Food stamps, a gun, a backpack and a flag to drape over his coffin. Yeah! Now, go eat your hot dog! Celebrate!

So, More Stupid Cannon Fodder Is Headed To Afghanistan?

 

Why oh why am I not surprised? Maybe this will help explain things. And this!

Trump Weighs Sending as Many as 5,000 More Troops to Afghanistan

The Trump administration is weighing a drastic change when it comes to Afghanistan: Whether to send as many as 5,000 more troops in the fight.

A U.S. official told The Post that Trump wants to “start winning” again.

In my post titled “I Make Thirty-Eight Thousand Dollars A Year!,” I gave the average dollar amount U.S. soldiers sent into Afghanistan make and that dollar amount is $38,000 plus medical, housing, uniforms, a coffin and a flag to drape over that coffin when they bring your dead carcass back to the states for burial. And what a solemn ceremony that will be. It won’t however, be attended by any of the top brass. You know, the ones who sit in their ivory tower and give the go-ahead to send some stupid schmuck like you, who doesn’t know any better to fight uh…let me see. Fight who or whom? Who are you fighting? You don’t even know. You just suit up like the good little robotic, stupid schmuck you are. Are you fighting the Taliban, ISIS, Ali-baba and the Forty Thieves or just some camel herders? You don’t have a clue who you’re supposed to be fighting in Afghanistan and what business is it of America as to what goes on in Afghanistan? That country is nowhere near the U.S. and so what affects that country cannot possibly have an effect on this one seeing as how the Taliban has no need to come over here and fuck shit up. This shit is already fucked up over here. This country is over $19 trillion dollars in debt, healthcare is a no-show for millions, homeless tent cities are forming daily, food lines are looking like Depression era bread lines, retail stores are shuttering their doors in unprecedented numbers, entire cities are declaring bankruptcy and even Puerto Rico is bankrupt, car manufacturers are shuttering their doors this summer and car dealerships are begging people to buy cars because their inventory is bloated, but we are told to worry about the Taliban? And so suit up and get the hell over to Afghanistan and fuck shit up over there because goddamn! The U.S. should not be the only country that’s fucked up. Hell! Misery loves company, doncha know! And like the good little sheeple you are, you will do as you are told.

But guess what? America CANNOT win a war in Afghanistan, just like America couldn’t win the war in Vietnam and it didn’t win the Korean War. The U.S. is once again, bogged down in a quagmire and those who send the cannon fodder to fight their wars don’t have a problem continuing to commit insanity which we all know is ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results’. And quite obviously, many Americans are insane since they have no problem following the orders of the insane. How many U.S. soldiers coming back in body bags will it take to wake the American people up? How many soldiers have to get themselves in the news for going bat shit crazy and riddling their family members with bullets before you realize that this could all have been avoided?

Didn’t Trump just drop the (MOAB)Mother Of All Bombs in Afghanistan? So? What did that accomplish? Didn’t he think that would make all the difference in the world? To send the biggest non-atomic bomb to Afghanistan, drop it and voila? Problem solved, right? Wrong! Now, it’s back to deploying more cannon fodder because the MOAB didn’t accomplish a damn thing. So, what did the MOAB do? Leveled a few caves. That’s what it did. Ain’t that something? How much did the MOAB cost that merely leveled a few caves in Afghanistan? One website reported the MOAB costing $16 million, another one cited $314 million and one claimed it cost $341 million. The exact number doesn’t really matter. What matters is that whatever the cost of this bomb, it didn’t do a damn thing about a damn thing! You have read not one report that this massive bomb had a devastating impact on the so-called Taliban or even ISIS in Afghanistan because if it had had any effect at all, why would Trump contemplate sending an additional 5,000 American soldiers into Afghanistan? Trump is adhering to the script as written by the warmongers who play these little games with the stupid American sheeple whereas they pretend to do one thing while actually doing another. When they tell Trump to send a massive bomb over to Afghanistan, it was to make you think that the focus in that country is to go after some folks who are just too horrible for words because the Afghan government just cannot do what? Something? Anything? Nothing! And Americans don’t even question the obvious ridiculousness of all of this. Guess what massive bombs cannot do? They cannot protect poppy fields. Only ‘sentinels’ can do that. Remember when Barack Obama claimed that he was exiting all troops from Afghanistan since the war in Afghanistan was at an end and then changed his mind and decided to leave 10,000 troops there? Well, it turns out that he called the plan “Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.” So, again, since the war in Afghanistan ended, then why the necessity to keep even 10,000 U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan?

U.S. Ends Its War in Afghanistan

President Barack Obama has decided to keep nearly 10,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2014, but then quickly pull them out over two years.

The U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan ended its combat mission Sunday, marking the formal—if not real—end to the longest war in American history.

The new, slimmed-down allied mission, Campbell said, will be called Operation Resolute Support. Back in Washington, the Pentagon said its piece of the new mission will be called Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.

But now, all of a sudden, there is still a war going on in Afghanistan. Why? Because there has to be a name for something that is so filthy and dirty and immoral and disgusting so that it will go over well with the American people. And what do Americans love? Violence, war, death, destruction, fighting, dying, lies, hypocrisy, drugs, especially drugs and guess what Afghanistan has? Drugs! Poppy! Opium! Heroin! Morphine! Codeine!

What is opium?

Opium is a substance that is derived by collecting and later drying the milky juice that comes from the seed pods of the poppy plant. The primary component of opium is 12% morphine which is an alkaloid that is often processed chemically to produce illegal drugs such as heroin. Codeine and other non-narcotic alkaloids are also found in the latex that is derived from the opium poppy plant.

Yeah! Let’s call what we are doing in Afghanistan, a war. Yeah! That sounds great. We are fighting a war against a most horrifying enemy. And folks, that enemy has several different names we’ve given it; The Taliban, ISIS, Ali baba and his forty thieves, The Infidel Hater’s Club, it don’t really matter what we call them, the American people love war. Hell! The cannon fodder don’t kick up a fuss one bit, they just head for the airfield, and overseas they go! Dumb schmucks!”

But what’s really going on folks is that the government has always been the biggest drug cartel on this planet. Oh, we see documentaries on the Mexican and Columbian drug cartels and such like, but that’s just the U.S. government’s competition. They’re small fry compared to what the government officials make off peddling opioids in every form. When the heroin addicts are so-called ‘in recovery’, what do you think the government hands them? Why, another opioid, of course, ‘methadone’.

Now, what is methadone?

Methadone is an opioid medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic.

So, to get an opioid addict off opioids, the answer is to give him/her more opioids? And only the government is allowed to give out methadone. The ‘former’ heroin addicts line up at the methadone clinic to get their daily dose of another opioid to combat the withdrawal symptoms of an opioid. How does that work? Who wins? Certainly not the addict. Is the picture becoming clear to you yet? Are you still left wondering why the U.S. government is hell bent on ‘pretend’ bombing its way across Afghanistan even after it has been stated that the war is over? Are you still wondering why ‘Operation Freedom’s Sentinel’ was born? What does a sentinel do? It stands guard over something. And what is there to stand guard over in Afghanistan? Caves? Camels? Hell no! Poppy fields, is the answer! Opium! Morphine! Heroin! Methadone! The ‘Mother Lode’! You can bet your candy ass that the Mother Of All Bombs was dropped nowhere near a poppy field. Trump would have had the MOAB dropped on your sons first because your stupid sons just don’t matter. But never will he ever drop a bomb on those poppy fields because the poppy is precious. Your sons? Not at all!

And when you view another commercial about how serious they are taking this opioid epidemic, you’d best laugh because to them, it is a joking matter. That drug; that poppy plant over in Afghanistan is making some folks extremely rich. But what it’s doing to America’s sons and daughters is no laughing matter. Your government has declared actual war, not on the Taliban in Afghanistan, but on your ass; twice over. In Afghanistan, in the form of U.S. soldiers getting deployed and dying for nothing and here in America by enabling you to fill that prescription for some opioids and now that so many people are overdosing and this fact cannot be shielded from the public any longer, they’ve now decided to pretend that there is some concern over this epidemic of overdoses of ‘white’ folks all across America. But know this, if they were really concerned about the opioid epidemic, U.S. soldiers would have been pulled completely out of Afghanistan and Trump would not be contemplating how many U.S. soldiers he’d like to send into Afghanistan. We’re fighting the Taliban? Sure, we are! And if you are stupid enough to believe that load of horseshit, then I’ve got a bridge in London I’m selling dirt cheap!

Bomb This Hellhole To Bits!

Not one American was gassed
And so America bombed Syria because..
 Well, these things just should not be done.
After all, there are international laws.

What applies to America is unique.
There are none so exceptional as we
who were not gassed by no terrorists we trained,
but we still bombed a foreign country.

Some things just make no sense at all.
America refused Syria’s refugees
who were escaping a war torn land
brought on by our own tragedies.

Now let’s turn this all around.
Did America not gas the Iraqis?
And it was okay when we gassed the Vietnamese
and then say, “We are better than the Nazis.”

Tell that to the dead Vietnamese.
 Or have you forgotten all about Napalm?
Our selective amnesia is telling
when we can forget about a Napalm bomb.

White phosphorous, the Iraqis will never forget.
How can they when we are still there?
We bombed them over a big ass lie
since those WMDs are where?

Hiroshima and Nagasaki were cities
bombed by the US of A.
How many people did we kill?
And we still think that was okay!

We are all American dogs
who drool and piss and shit
on a planet of people at will
and we all deserve a direct hit!

So China, Iran and North Korea,
Russia and even Bangladesh
bomb this hellhole to bits!
Maybe this world can then start, afresh!

Unfortunately, I shall not get my wish that Russia, Iran, North Korea and China will blow this hellhole to kingdom come, but I can still keep hope alive.

So, Donald Trump has initiated what amounts to déjà vu because didn’t we go over this already about Assad using sarin gas during Obama’s reign? And what happened? It was found that the Assad government did not gas their own people, the rebels that America’s CIA trained did that, but even so, Russia stepped in and helped to broker a deal that relieved the Assad government of any chemical weapons it may have had and yet, here we are again. Donald Trump is just so disturbed at the thought of little children getting gassed that he just could not contain himself and so sent 59 missiles to do what? Kill more innocent little children? Because that is what happened, isn’t it? Civilians were killed by those U.S. missiles and so where is the outrage from Trump about that?

That no good bastard is not even outraged that the U. S. Department of Justice issued a scathing report on Baltimore’s police force due to the fact of rampant and systemic excessive use of force and police brutality against a majority Black city. In fact, Attorney General, Jeff Sessions stated that, “the consent decree would keep the KKKops from doing their job of continuing to brutalize, racial profile and fuck up Black folks on a regular basis just ’cause they should!”

And here we have all these pasty-faced motherfuckers just declaring how horrid it is for Assad to gas his own people when these same pasty-faced assholes would rather see me dead just because my skin tone is dark. Don’t that fucking beat all? Talk about this shithole drowning in hypocrisy, America is the very definition of hypocrisy from one end of this cesspool of corruption to the other. And here we sit, biting our nails and hoping there’s to be no draft. My post titled, “The Draft Is Being Reinstituted On January 1st, 2016! is the number one post because you scared ass pieces of whiny assed exceptionally brain dead cretins are shaking in your cowboy boots and wife beaters over the possibility of you having to get up off your fat ass and get it handed to you by the Russians and the Chinese. You don’t have to worry about being drafted because you’re fucking useless, what with a needle stuck in your damn arm loaded with heroin and who knows what the hell else. Your fat ass can’t even fit in the cockpit of a fighter jet because you’re too damn lazy to even get up off the couch and turn the channel on the TV. The only thing you’re good for is nothing! Ain’t no use for you whatsoever. So quite actually, if a bomb was to land squarely in your fucking living room, it’d be doing you a favor by sending you to meet your fairytale maker sitting up in the sky waiting to receive your worthless ass, or so says your slimy piece of shit reverend; the snake oil selling bastard! Yeah, a bomb would quite actually be good for you because it’d put you out of your sorry ass misery. I wish they would send a bomb up the ass of every single piece of American filth and think I don’t mean that, you sorry ass filthy fuckers!

…And On The Bright Side…

 

uh…wait a minute, there is no bright side. Or is there?

Drugs are killing so many people in Ohio that cold-storage trailers are being used as morgues

Rick Walters, an investigator for the Stark County coroner’s office, had just left for two death scenes: a suicide and an overdose.

From the road, he called the director of the Ohio Emergency Management Agency to ask for help. He needed more space, he explained — specifically, a cold-storage trailer to act as an overflow morgue.

As with much of the United States, Ohio is in the throes of a heroin and opioid epidemic that shows no signs of abating.

The Friday afternoon request for a cold-storage trailer highlights the epidemic ravaging the state.

So, what is causing the outrageous statistics of death by overdose? What is so wrong with Americans that they are overdosing by the thousands? It has been stated that the overwhelmingly huge numbers of ‘white’ patients who have been prescribed opioids for their physical pain has caused them to develop a habit for which they cannot obtain enough ‘legal’ prescriptions to satisfy and so therefore, they are now running to the corner drug dealer even in rural America. How many Black drug dealers are on Becky and Sarah Lane in Klan Bluff, Kentucky or in Hoity Toity City, Maine? Yeah! Slow your roll! So, blame this epidemic on the pale-skinned variety because you own it. And if you want to try the ‘white’ drug dealer for murder because Becky and Sarah overdosed to death, then start with America’s military whores and the warmongers who they work for because they sent them into Afghanistan to protect that poppy plant that when harvested is given a free plane ride right to the states and straight into the hands of Sarah, Becky, Scott and William and now, their corpses are all lying in trailers awaiting autopsies that will tell us what we already know; they died from an overdose of heroin and other drugs like benzodiazepines and don’t forget, alcohol.

Bakersfield lies in the heart of Kern County, a vast sprawl of lush cropland in California’s Central Valley. Here, accidental overdoses among white women have tripled since 1999, according to federal health data, and suicides have doubled.

The death toll has alarmed health-care workers like Eggert and given rise to a loose network of therapists, nurses, pastors and drug counselors struggling to understand a generation of women overwhelmed by modern life and undone by modern medicine.

Wow! ‘White’ women are dying because they are overwhelmed by ‘modern life and undone by modern medicine’. But what does that mean? Does it mean that ‘white’ women are dying because they have the ability to live in a ‘vast sprawl of lush cropland in California’ and so cannot deal with that ‘hood’ type of environment since it is just too horrific for words? Are ‘white’ women ACCIDENTALLY overdosing to death because ‘white’ doctors are seeing to it that their ‘white’ female patients are given enough prescription opioids to kill them? Your own ‘kind’ is wiping you out while you are somewhere wailing and moaning and gnashing your teeth and all set to blame the ‘Black’ corner drug dealer when it is not the ‘Black’ corner drug dealer that’s getting your ass hooked on opioids in the first place. But you won’t lay the blame where it belongs. It cannot be another ‘white’ person that has given you the means to your end; it has always got to be a ‘Black’ person who is to blame for your ACCIDENTAL overdose. No, it’s not because how do you think that opium that you are ACCIDENTALLY overdosing on gets into this country? And how many ‘Black’ corner drug dealers do you know who own boats and planes to ship that shit into this country? No indeed, your ‘white’ counterparts don’t get off that easily. They are why you’re able to get your hands on enough drugs to get a tag placed on your toe inside a trailer morgue, your drug epidemic is so bad.

So, you’ve got sciatic nerve pain and you cannot take the pain? You went to your ‘white’ doctor and got a prescription for that pain and now that the focus is on those bad, bad opioids, your doctor has been instructed to reduce the number of pills you get and to reduce the strength of those pills and so now, you’ve got to look around to find something else to supplement what you’ve now lost? Heroin time! And now, it’s a needle in the arm for you and OOPS! ACCIDENTAL overdose! Now, let’s blame the ‘Black boogeyman drug dealer’ AGAIN! Nope! Not this time, ya don’t. You get to blame one of your own. Again, you own this!

And next, we have this!

Drugs are killing so many people in West Virginia that the state can’t keep up with the funerals

Deaths in West Virginia have overwhelmed a state program providing burial assistance for needy families for at least the fifth year in a row, causing the program to be nearly out of money four months before the end of the fiscal year, according to the state’s Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR). Funeral directors in West Virginia say the state’s drug overdose epidemic, the worst in the nation, is partly to blame.

So, is it ‘Black’ drug dealers providing ‘white’ West Virginians with the cause of their demise[heroin]? Let me see. There are 1,739,988 ‘whites’ in West Virginia making up 93% of West Virginia’s total population and there are 63,124 Black folks living in West Virginia and so are we then to believe that a mere 3% of the population of West Virginia is responsible for the epidemic of drug overdoses of mostly ‘white’ West Virginians? Methinks not! So don’t even go there. And now, who would be responsible for this besides those who take the drugs and overdose on them? Your friendly neighborhood pharmacist who is just filling the prescriptions of the doctors of these patients who overdosed? Or could it initially start with the means to which the doctors could actually write out a prescription for opioids thanks to the fact of those military whores stationed over in Afghanistan protecting those poppy fields and giving poppy plants when harvested, a free plane ride here with the blessings of your government, Americans? Uh..that would be the answer. There is much blame to go around, but the blame certainly cannot be laid squarely at the feet of the ever so put upon ‘Black bogeyman corner drug dealer’.

‘White’ folks, you’d better wake up and smell the reasons for your addictions. While your counterparts have been studying and experimenting on Black people for hundreds of years, they have neglected your ass and now the hand wringing and gnashing of teeth is all the rage because they just did not see this most horrible of all epidemics coming; that of suburban, rural and city ‘white’ America succumbing to the lure and temptation of opioid addiction. No one saw your isolation amongst ‘lush cropland in California’ and near coalmines in West Virginia and in the back hills of Kentucky. It was just taken for granted that you were just loving life seeing as how you had every reason, what with your ‘white privilege’ and all to shield you from everything but drug addiction.

Every day, there is yet another news article on the ordeal that ‘whites’ are going through thanks to opioids. What the hell??!!! Has not the ‘War on Drugs’ been waged since the 70s and so why are we now looking at, not an end to this ‘drug war’, but instead, we are looking at a ramped up and seemingly endless epidemic of drug-related suicides and ACCIDENTAL overdose deaths of ‘whites’? Why? Because the ‘War on Drugs’ was a war on Black people and now karma is a bitch, ain’t she? Thank you KARMA!

And the ‘good’ news just keeps on coming ‘on the bright side’.

The prospect of a Payless bankruptcy is just the last bad news to buffet the retail world. Stores like The Sports Authority, American Apparel, Aéropostale, Wet Seal and PacSun are among the retailers to have filed for bankruptcy protection in the last two years, with some liquidating altogether. On Tuesday, Sears Holdings (shld, +3.79%) admitted there is ‘substantial doubt’ it can stay in business.

Those great paying jobs at Payless, Sears, Kmart, Wet Seal, Abercrombie & Fitch, JC Penney, Crocs, Guess, bebe and the list is endless are going, going almost gone and of course this means more despondency and an even greater need to dull the pain and so grab some more opioids; that’ll make you feel better as it dulls the senses and lulls one into a false sense of ‘all is well’, that is, until it wears off and back to the doctor ‘white’ drug dealer, you go.

Let us not forget the ‘good’ news of Donald Trump’s promise of ‘more great paying jobs for Americans’. Well, Trump, where are they? Because it does not look as though those ‘great’ paying jobs will be in retail. And it certainly does not appear as if many of Trump’s supporters will even be around in four years to vote him back in seeing as how it doesn’t even feel good to PAYLESS. The only person who is getting paid is the pharmacist and ‘white’ drug dealer on Becky and Sarah Lane in Coal Mine, West Virginia. The only persons who are getting paid are the military whores who are stationed in Afghanistan guarding those poppy fields to make sure that opium gets safely to America. Fight the Taliban? What Taliban? There’s opium in dem dar fields, doncha know!

Everybody had enough ‘good’ news for one day ‘on the bright side’? Yeah! That’s what I thought!

And before I forget, let me just finish with this little gem!

For whites across America, deaths of despair are rising

For many white Americans without a college degree, life in America has devolved in a few short decades from one that offered ample economic opportunity into a socioeconomic dead end

That’s according to new research from Princeton economists Anne Case and Nobel Prize-winner Angus Deaton, who grabbed headlines in 2015 with their finding that the death rate for middle-aged white Americans had sharply risen. The new research adds color to their earlier findings, helping to explain what’s driving mortality rates for less educated whites beyond that of blacks and their counterparts in other developed countries. 

Spin it any way you like, but the fact of the matter is, even college-educated ‘whites’ are in despair since many of them are still waiting tables years after having earned a college degree. Many are janitors and are selling shoes in Payless Stores, while they’re still open, that is. So yes indeed, the chickens are coming home to roost and about time, I say! And if I don’t seem one bit upset about all of this, it is because I am not one bit upset about all of this! You thought your ‘white privilege’ would shield you from drug overdose suicides and from the pink slips dished up by a fucked up economy? Not anymore. Your own kind has now made it a fact that you are privileged to die with a needle in your arm thanks to their giving you the means to your own end while they blame everyone else for fucking you up. But you thought that Donald Trump was going to ride in on his white steed and save the day for you? Is it happening yet? Let me know when it does and I will be more than happy to add it to more ‘good’ news ‘on the bright side’!

This Reeks of a Set-Up!

…and here we go again!

Nashville officer fatally shoots man after traffic stop

According  to this article, a KKKop in an unmarked ‘police’ car notices a man running a stop sign, apparently follows him until he pulls into a housing project and then gets out of his unmarked ‘police’ car and approaches the BLACK man just to ‘talk’ to him about running a stop sign. The big, scary Black man, then charges at the little ole puny KKKop, knocking him all about all the while brandishing his.357 and somehow, he pushes the little puny KKKop out of the way and makes a run for the housing project’s door, whereas he is then shot in the back by some ‘white’ man dressed in a KKKop uniform who just got out of an unmarked ‘patrol’ car ‘believing he was in imminent danger’ while the Big scary Black guy had his back turned towards him. Seriously???!! Really??!! For real????!! I’m not buying that load of horseshit!

According to police, Clemmons had parked his vehicle outside of a public housing development and was getting out when Nashville Officer Josh Lippert drove up to talk to him about running a stop sign. Clemmons was carrying a loaded .357 pistol and charged at Lippert, then ran through the parking lot of the development.

Lippert caught up with Clemmons, and the two had a physical confrontation. Clemmons refused orders to drop his gun. Believing he was in imminent danger, Lippert fired three times at Clemmons, according to police.

I don’t care how crazy it sounds, they will spin it any way they can and expect us to believe that bullshit when we know better. How many times have we been told to watch out for fake KKKops who get out of unmarked cars and pretend to be the police. Women have been raped. Homes have been invaded and homeowners beaten senseless by ‘white’ men pretending to be KKKops and so why would a KKKop be patrolling in the projects in an unmarked patrol car? What was the reasoning behind this? It was a set-up from the gitgo because the purpose was to shoot another Black man, dead!

And of course, here it comes!

Clemmons was convicted of a cocaine felony in 2014 and received an eight-year probated sentence. As a convicted felon, it would have been a violation of both state and federal law to possess the pistol, according to the statement.

“Oh looky! We got a real bad career criminal off the streets and inside the morgue! Thank us! Real bad Black dude here had a felony criminal record thanks to the ‘War on Drugs’ cause he was caught with some cocaine on him and that’s a felony. See folks, the ‘War on Drugs’ is working!”

But let’s take a look at something.

Coroner: [Actor]Philip Seymour Hoffman died of acute mixed drug intoxication

Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was found dead February 2 on the bathroom floor of his New York apartment with a syringe in his left arm, died of acute mixed drug intoxication, including heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines and amphetamine, the New York medical examiner’s office said Friday.

Now, how did Philip Seymour Hoffman obtain his cocaine that helped him overdose to death? Where were the KKKops when Philip Seymour Hoffman was pulling up to his New York apartment with heroin, cocaine, syringes and every goddamn thing else on him? You see, the KKKops are busy laying in wait for Black men in the projects who have already been arrested for cocaine possession and who are also well known by the KKKops since they’ve got a mug shot posted in their unmarked vehicles that they use to trap Black people who’ve previously been convicted of cocaine possession. What, they’ve busted up all their ‘marked’ patrol cars in Nashville, TN? And why no KKKops stationed in unmarked cars in upper crust neighborhoods? Anyone with more than two brain cells connected cannot think that cocaine use is not prevalent among whites. Hell! The KKKops are more than likely driving up in ‘unmarked’ cars and delivering their drugs to them while we are busy getting shot for doing less criminal shit than they do. And of course the deceased Mr. Clemmons had a gun. Don’t all Black men carry guns? But if in this instance, by some miracle, Mr. Clemmons did not have a gun, by the time the KKKops get their stories straight, he’ll have had several, including the one tattooed on top of his head that ‘could’ have fired because we have all heard the stories from KKKops of how suspects that are handcuffed in the back of the ‘patrol’ car have somehow maneuvered their hands and found a weapon that the KKKops couldn’t find on them during the search and shot themselves, in the head no less, and  of course, died. So, tell me, who are the REAL criminals?

You want some examples of people dressing up as KKKops? Here are a few just for starters. Here and what about Stockton Teen Thwarts Home Invasion By Men Dressed As Police Officers or what about Man impersonating cop handcuffs woman during kidnapping attempt and I could go on and on, and so why would a KKKop ride around in the projects in an unmarked car? To kill another Big, scary Black man in a set-up, that’s why! Because if a KKKop is not in a ‘marked’ patrol car in the first place and then waits until the ‘suspect’ who allegedly ran a stop sign pulls up in the housing projects and then steps out with a KKKop uniform on and goes up to the man who allegedly ran the stoplight, ostensibly just to talk to him, what could possibly go wrong? What would you have been thinking if confronted with this scenario? Is this shit for real? Well, if you’re Black, it’s real and it means death! And in this case, dead men tell no tales. As usual, the KKKops write the script and they certainly never stray from it, do they? What need have they? They are just doing what they’ve signed on to do and what they were hired to do, kill those niggers! Yeah! I know who the real gangsters are, in and out of ‘patrol’ cars!

February Is Slave History Month

slave-history-month-one

Yea though I stand humbly draped in chains,
I am allowed to celebrate slave history gains.
And since I shall die while serving my white master,
make a note that I worshipped at your feet, sweet Alabaster.

Make no mistake, I am grateful for no freedom
since oppression is what I’m used to as I head to God’s kingdom.
There, I will be judged by their god of outrageous lies
and found stunningly unfit by the lord of these flies.
So, please stand with me now as we thank our dear captors
for our place in history; all twenty-eight chapters.

As we are all aware by now, we are in the midst of celebrating Slave History Month and so without further ado, let the celebrations begin.

Those of us who had no choice but to be here since we did not immigrate but are here nevertheless thanks to our ancestors having been forcibly dragged here, take this opportunity to thank those who are the spawn of what dragged us here for giving us this month to celebrate that fact. It is quite apparent that those who wish us to thank them for this opportunity to stand before them in chains to this very day, are awaiting demonstrations of gratitude from us. We have not humbled ourselves in their kitchens, slave quarters, bathrooms, bedrooms and fields quite to their satisfaction for why else have they given us this month in which to thank them for their generosity; their thoughtfulness in dragging our ancestors from Africa to America? How can we let them know just how truly delighted we are to have twenty-eight chapters…I mean, twenty-eight days in which to celebrate our slave history?

And if you think you are not still a slave, why, Donald Trump just disabused you of that notion by in essence, speaking of Frederick Douglass as though he were still alive today.

Trump had this to say about Frederick Douglass. “Frederick Douglass is an example of someone who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I noticed.”

Frederick Douglass, on behalf of Donald Trump, we wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued excellence in getting your point across as it pertains to “What to the slave is your fourth of July celebrations?‘ as you tour America today. Apparently, you did not die in 1895 since Trump is noticing that you are being recognized more and more wherever you go even though most of us are aware that you were born into slavery. It is good to know that you are still with us and even though you are still a slave, they have given you leeway to go on tour to promote your abolitionist views.

I hear tell that Harriet Tubman is being brought back to life in the form of her picture on the twenty dollar bill. What in the world is President Jackson saying about this? And I know he will not keep quiet about it. But then, we shall surely wait for Donald Trump to get around to enlightening us on that score. So many slaves still here with us today to celebrate Slave History Month and so let us thank them for their continued sacrifices on our behalf. For theirs has been an excruciatingly long and arduous struggle and we also have many Civil Rights icons that we want to thank as well; Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, Bayard Rustin, Ralph Abernathy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Ella Baker, Medgar Evers and so many, many more.

But today, as we celebrate Slave History Month, our celebrations are being upended thanks to The Donald’s Muslim ban and the cries for us to stand in solidarity with the Muslim community that never stood in solidarity with us; in fact, went out of its way to make sure that the ‘whites’ knew that we could not count on Muslim solidarity in our time of need. What group has ever stood in solidarity with us? Most certainly not the Muslims. And just so you know this to be true, here is a little excerpt that I took from a blog that I was reading earlier.

In the Fight Against Islamophobia, Solidarity with other Marginalized Groups is Key

when I sit around listening to aunties at parties giving pointers to each other on the best times to go to yoga classes so as to avoid black people. (Honestly, it’s a charitable interpretation of their language to even say they refer to black folks as people; most of the time they casually use the term kala, which literally means just “black” in Hindi/Urdu.)

Isn’t that nice? Black people are not even referred to as people, only as the ‘color’, Black, literally by the Muslims. You are less than a color to these Muslims. At least the ‘whites’ gave you the dubious distinction of being three-fifths human, but the Muslims don’t even give you that much. And so, you are going to stand somewhere in solidarity with some shits that don’t even see you as ‘human’? What does that say for them? Send their ass packing Donald Trump; each and every damn one of them. Send them packing!

And yes, we must be avoided at all times but because the Muslims are afraid for their very lives now, it has now been deemed appropriate to wake up and recognize that the ‘whites’ are now coming for them, so let’s get with the program that it would be to their benefit to get with ‘the color Black’ at yoga class because those  ‘Black colors’ have been marginalized since forever. The Muslim marginalization has just begun and they want to recognize the fact of ‘the ongoing color Black’ marginalization just NOW! Too goddamn late! Don’t let the door hit you on your ass on the way out of yoga class or on the way out of this country! Send them packing, Donald Trump! Send them packing! And if that isn’t bad enough, read this:

I knew my marginalization wasn’t unique every time I heard my classmates cycle through a seemingly endless repertoire of racist jokes on the schoolbus, about everything from the emo-Muslim who lets out angst by crashing planes to the Mexicans coming out of holes in their backyards to the eternal crowd favorite, “What do you call 3 black men on the moon? Three black men on the moon. What do you call 3 million? Problem solved!”
Just as horrifying as these jokes was the expectation that I would laugh at them too — since, hey, I’m not Mexican or black, so what business do I have being offended?

To take offense for the sake of people different from you is to begin to become invested in a politics deeper than your own individual hurt.

WOW! Hey slaves in America, you taking note of this? This newly marginalized Muslim here has been listening to these racist comments all her life but has chosen this time to dig up some hurt for you because now Muslims like herself are being targeted. So, this indeed is the case of “I did not speak up when first they came for the Blacks in my yoga class, I did not speak up when they told racist jokes about Black men, but now, I want these same ‘marginalized’ people to get with the program that we should now gather in a group hug and recognize that we need each other since I am now one of the ‘marginalized’.” Nope, not going to happen! If you were never in my corner…AND, you were NOT!!!, you are never going to be in my corner simply because the focus is not just solely on our ass anymore, but now they have dumped their collective hatred onto your ass! And even your various college degrees are not enough to save you from their hysterical hatred for Muslims from select countries who hold green cards or an H-1b visa. You see the one difference between us is I don’t hold a green card nor a visa because I was born here. Can you say the same? No, I didn’t think so because if you could, you wouldn’t be so put out about this Muslim ban, would you? They cannot put your sorry ass out of this country fast enough to suit me! Send them packing Donald Trump! Send them packing!

So, let us celebrate Slave History Month, my fellow slaves because we are on our own. There is no need for you to feel pressured to march through the streets with those who are afraid of some immigration ban because their fight is not your fight since your fight, they never bothered with or even thought about since it did not seem as though the ‘whites’ would ever pick a fight with them. No, celebrate your Slave History Month for what it is worth and tell those who would stand in solidarity with you now that karma is a bitch! Send them packing Donald Trump! Send them packing!

Why Boycott Starbucks?

starbucks

 

Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz, in opposition to Donald Trump’s recent executive action regarding banning immigrants from certain countries for a few months, has decided to hire 10,000 refugees at Starbucks locations all across the globe. So according to this article, Trump’s supporters took to social media to ramp up a boycott against Starbucks because of the CEO’s stance even though it has also been stated that Starbucks pledged to hire 10,000 veterans and military spouses by 2018.

People are boycotting Starbucks (SBUX) again, and this time it has nothing to do with its cups.

On Sunday, Starbucks’ CEO Howard Schultz disclosed that the coffee giant would be hiring 10,000 refugees worldwide over the next five years, a direct response to President Donald Trump’s executive order barring immigrants — including refugees — from seven countries from entering the U.S.

Now, let’s take a look at something. The average pay of a barista at Starbucks is between $7.63 and $10.63 per hour, and shift managers earn an average of $9.12 to $13.44 which still leaves the employee in poverty since it has been established that a person needs to make $48,788 a year to cover standard costs of living expenses and if I was to take an average of what a Starbucks shift manager earns which would be around $11.00 an hour, that employee would make $21,120 a year, well below what’s needed to live on. So, how is Starbucks doing any favors for veterans and their spouses or even immigrants since they will need social programs to live on and need to make use of food banks to supplement their Starbucks earnings because their take-home pay will not be $21,120 since taxes and other payroll deductions will come out of their pay? How is the CEO of Starbucks in any position to attempt to take the high road at all since this is also known by the Starbucks CEO? How is he even attempting to take the high road against Donald Trump by announcing his plan to hire 10,000 immigrants and pay them poverty wages while the CEO of Starbucks makes $9,200 an hour which makes him one of the biggest hypocrites to even attempt to take the high road?

Where is his concern for those who enable his sorry ass to rake in $9,200 an hour while Starbucks shift managers start out earning $9.12 an hour and the starting salary for a barista is only $7.63 to $10.63 an hour? Why was there never a call to boycott Starbucks in protest over the paltry wages paid to those who work there?  Or better yet, to make a noise over the pay of its CEO in comparison to that of the average Starbucks employee? Why not stand in solidarity with those who, once they finish their shift at Starbucks,  must then head out the door, change clothes and go to their second job; that’s the only way they’ll be able to afford more than a box underneath a bridge because I hear tell that boxes underneath bridges are at a premium these days. We will never make a difference because the only way to make a difference is to boycott every single business in every single country and turn our cities into communities where we help each other. But that will never catch on because we only boycott when something makes us mad and for only five minutes. What’s that going to do? Not a damn thing. So, no one is worried about your Starbucks boycott, especially not the one you’re hoping will be worried; its billionaire CEO, Howard Schultz.

Isn’t it nice when billionaires decide to take a stand to help the helpless? Isn’t it just wonderful to see one billionaire pit his empathy and selflessness against another? I mean, on the one hand, we have Donald Trump calling for a ban on immigrants from certain countries because ‘average’ Americans need to be kept safe from refugees who were made so by the very fact of this country shit stirring in theirs; bombing the hell out of their country and on the other hand, we have another billionaire who steps in and saves the day for the ‘average’ immigrant by throwing poverty wages at them if they can indeed, get past Donald Trump’s immigration ban. How this circus of horrors will play out is anyone’s guess. But we can be sure that things will only go from bad to worse at this point with billionaires telling us what’s best for us. When has a billionaire ever done anything but what was best for the billionaire? Both are bloated windbags with more money than brains and who have been using their silver spoons to sip from their bowls of wealth and privilege and who never knew what it actually meant to earn one honest dollar in their lives.

We have 10,000 veterans and spouses of veterans about to start earning poverty wages, and by the way, this must be how billionaires ‘thank them for their service’ and soon to be joining them in about three months time will be 10,000 immigrants and with both the House and the Senate hell bent on cutting social programs, we wonder why more and more homeless tent cities are popping up and why food banks are stretched to their limits and are running out of food? Ha! Keep wondering. Meanwhile, being the ever so helpful person that I am, I did a bit of research and found the cheapest apartment in America. It is located in Cleveland, OH and it’s only $350 a month. Sweet ain’t it? If you don’t mind living in Cleveland, then you’re all set. No need to thank me, that’s what I do, help the helpless and can you believe it, I’m not even a billionaire. I’m just a thoughtful, empathetic person who does indeed know what it feels like to live like a refugee in ones own supposed, ‘country’. I am one who has seen much suffering of those who are not deemed ‘refugees’ but who also live like refugees in their country of birth.

We don’t even take care of the least of us who were born in this country but we want to add to the burden of a system that is already bulging at the seams to the point where its ready to burst and deflate and what with these hypocritical Christian charities over here taking donations left and right and doing nothing that amounts to charity work, we need more people who have empathy and selflessness because we are the only ones who will attempt to step up to the plate when billionaires and Christian hypocrites add to our problems instead of resolving them.

I don’t need to boycott Starbucks because I have never stepped foot inside one. Of course it could be because caffeine disagrees with me but it also could mean that I loathe the very name ‘Starbucks’ because everyone is running through the doors of Starbucks as though it is the first and last name in coffee. We’re talking coffee folks, something that just should not be that important. If you were running through the doors of say, ‘Habitat for Humanity’ seeking to help build some poor person a much needed home, then I’d say, “Way ta go!” But that’s not what’s happening.  When was the last time you ran inside the doors of a homeless shelter because it was bandied about as being the most hip spot to go into and get your ‘help the poor’ fix? When was the last time you ran inside the door of a food bank or food shelf to help out because it was the most hip spot to go into and get your ‘help the hungry’ fix? When others hype up a place like a ridiculously named coffee joint to the point where that’s the only name you hear, I do just the opposite and that is exactly what I do, head in the opposite direction.

So, Cleveland it is then, eh?

Orange/White Privilege

white-privilege

Bigotry from a man who turned himself orange;
protests from those who know nothing but privilege.
Would that I could turn myself orange and know privilege,
I would never need another pair of walking shoes.

If love trumps hate and all things in between,
how is it that love does not trump my skin tone?
For if it did, those signs would read:
“Stop killing my Black brothers and sisters, please!”
