The Killings Will Not Cease!

pulse nightclub shooting

The Pulse beats no more.
Music died and faggots too.
What makes some happy.
Makes others blue.

He saw two men kissing.
And it drove him quite insane.
He took a gun, went to the club.
Oh, look at that big blood stain.

I’m not making fun of this,
for that would not be right
Although, I cannot help but think,
this really ain’t my fight!

They say this was a bloody day;
the bloodiest one in history.
Tell that to the dead in Iraq
since we brought them so much misery.

Oh America hates to reap what she sows.
And the killings will not cease.
You cannot spread hate, worldwide
and expect a reward of peace.

Steeped in Indian blood,
and the blood of slaves too.
A legacy born of hatred;
murder in AmeriKKKa is nothing new!

I did not see this coming! This IS AmeriKKKa and since hate is fostered every single day, get used to this. AmeriKKKans are not better than the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, Gaza, Libya and any other place that is being bombed thanks to our apathy and complacency towards people that have done us no wrong. AmeriKKKan ‘exceptionalism’ does not stop a bullet!

We have had how many mass shootings in just the last two years alone? And the Newtown CT folks are sending their thoughts and prayers to the relatives and friends of those who got shot up at the Pulse Nightclub. What for? What use are prayers? Apparently, those people at the club had not a prayer of a chance, even with SWAT on the scene.

And from what I understand, the situation was so tense, the police let people bleed out even with sophisticated equipment that is supposed to allow them to see through walls and find a suspect with a gun, but yet, hours went by while the perp was on the phone kicking the bobo. “Yeah, homey, what’s up with that shooting going on in there? Your boyfriend mad atcha or what?” Right! As soon as I put this donut down, I’ll get to dealing with you but for now, the hostages are on their own.”

Of course, once again, the champion of the ‘gay rights’ agenda has ordered that flags be lowered to half staff. Obama to the rescue! YAAAAAY! Black folks, did Obama order the flags to be lowered at half staff for those nine innocent Black people that got themselves shot up in church by an avowed white supremacist? Uh..nooooo! But those Newtown angels got the flag lowered and now those that went clubbing and got shot up, in their honor, the flags have been lowered to half staff. I sure hope, Black folks, that your AmeriKKKan flag is flying in the breeze today on flag day and be sure that it is at half staff. Obama insists!

I am certainly not adding worthless condolences or hypocritical words of sympathy because they are useless. Actions speak louder than words and sitting on our asses expressing tripe sentiments won’t stop this, nor will it bring the dead back. Ask the dead.

This was ‘just another fucking day in paradise’!

“Black Lives Matter, Tamir Rice!”

Tamir Rice 2

 

#BLACKLIVESMATTER, tell that to Tamir Rice! Go to that child’s grave and stand over him and tell him that “BLACKLIVESMATTER!” If he could, he would rise up and slap the goddamn shit out of you! And if he didn’t, I would!

A Cleveland grand jury declined Monday to bring charges in the death of Tamir Rice, a black youth with a toy gun who was shot by a white police officer 13 months ago.

“The outcome will not cheer anyone, nor should it,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said. He blamed the shooting on a “perfect storm” of human error and miscommunication.

Let me get this straight! Twelve-year old Tamir Rice was playing with a toy gun in a park and someone called the police and three seconds after the KKKops arrive, Tamir Rice was shot and killed. Now, the County Prosecutor is calling this a “perfect storm” of human error and MISCOMMUNICATION???!!!

First of all, the only human at the scene was Tamir Rice because that piece of Klan filth that murdered him was NOT human. How can it be called ‘human’ when it killed a child? Oh, that’s right! To the ‘whites’, Tamir Rice, being Black was only three-fifths human and so there you have it folks! Nothing to see here! Move it along! A thing was killed! A possession! A slave! The slave patrol was dispatched because a slave got out and was found playing. This was against the law and was punishable by death. So it was written hundreds of years ago and so the very same law remains in effect to this very day. What the fuck has changed?

Second, the County Prosecutor, ‘white assed’ Timothy McGinty goes on to say that there was also the problem of MISCOMMUNICATION! How in unholy hell could Tamir Rice have communicated a goddamn thing in the three seconds that it took for the KKKop to gun him down? What could a scared and bewildered child say to a bastard that is pointing a gun at him? Tamir Rice was given NO time to say a goddamn thing! My bad! His skin tone spoke FOR him! It told that Klan bastard that he was of no account because he was not lily-white assed. That was the only communication that filth in blue was concerned with and that is why Tamir Rice is dead and buried and no one shall be held accountable for his murder!

And now, here comes #BLACKLIVESMATTER to the rescue! That ‘movement’ is going to? To? To what? Continue marching up to the doors of Klan headquarters and demand that those racist ass shits inside, open the goddamn door and ‘communicate’ with them on how they are going to stop the mass murders of Black children, women and men ? #BLACKLIVESMATTER is going to do what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and all of the other protesters could NOT do fifty years ago. #BLACKLIVESMATTER is going to yell even louder, march even longer and protest more enthusiastically than ever before and that is going to stop what happened to Tamir Rice from happening to another Black twelve-year old child. Well, isn’t it? Has there been any murders of Black people since #BLACKLIVESMATTER came on the scene? Yes? No? Uh..yes, there have been many, many more murders of Black women, children and men since then. So what does that say for marching and protesting? To me it says, IT’S NOT WORKING! So, what next, #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Why don’t you come on up in here and tell us what your plans are since the protesting you’ve been doing has not put a dent in the murder rate of Black people by racist ass KKKops! Grand Juries all across this shithole are coming back with the same findings; “NOT GUILTY! NOT GUILTY! NOT GUILTY!” And what do you do about that, #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Your members pick up yet another protest sign and march through the streets, clogging up traffic and that is it! Meanwhile, another Tamir Rice travesty is about to unfold. Meanwhile, another Sandra Bland travesty is about to unfold. Meanwhile, another Michael Brown travesty is about to unfold. Meanwhile, another John Crawford travesty is about to unfold. Meanwhile, another Renisha McBride travesty is about to unfold. And there you stand #BLACKLIVESMATTER with your protest signs and your bullhorns, just a shouting to the enemy, begging them to stop killing us. Here is an idea. Stop walking and start crawling to the ‘whites’ and see if that will help. Supplicate yourselves even further and slither across the ground to the ‘whites’ and see if that will get them to change from the vile, filthy, depraved, barbaric and racist shits they are into kind, nice, benevolent, caring and concerned ‘humans’.

So, to the other REAL BAD BLACK FOLKS(I am one too), here in AmeriKKKa, plainly speaking, we are failing our children just as we failed Tamir Rice. The ‘whites’ are not going to stop killing us. They may march with us for a bit and talk the talk but when all is said and done, they will not be the ones to change things for us. We have got to do that for ourselves. How many more years are you going to continue marching and holding signs stating that your life matters? What is the point in that? If you feel the need to tell ‘whites’ that your life matters, then you must already know that to them, your life, does NOT matter! You will never matter to them! You still cannot grasp that? Well, time for another history lesson because you just don’t get it! These are the same worthless shits that stole this land and are still laying claim to it. These are the same worthless shits that massacred the Indians, stole you from your homeland, dragged you over here, chained you into slavery, threw you to the wolves, initiated Jim Crow, experimented on you, denied you the right to vote, still considers you to be only three-fifths human, is moving you out of your neighborhoods by the process of gentrification, better known as ‘making you homeless’ and since laws are being placed on the books in every city in this shithole to basically make it a crime to be homeless, well now, into a jail cell, you go! These ‘white shits’ are also  dumbing you down and sending you from school straight into a prison cell.

The worthless  ass ‘white’ shits that are marching beside you and who you are marching up to, expecting to get relief from,  are the progeny of the same shits that set all of this in motion. What is wrong with you? Are you really that stupid, Black people? Your enemy is the very same government that so-called ‘founded’ this nation, but in reality, stole it, just as it stole YOU! Just as it fucked up the Indians, gave them small pox blankets, introduced them to alcohol, broke treaties, left and right and herded them onto reservations and then scooped up all of the choice land for themselves and they still have it to this day.  And yet, there you sit, just wondering why the government does not step in and put an end to open season on Black people in this shithole. It is because the law of the land as pertaining to slaves is still the law of the land today! We are still slaves! Don’t reservations still exist? How are the Indians doing today? Don’t know? Go to an Indian Reservation. You will find out quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry. Don’t know how Black people are faring? Go to Detroit, MI. Go to Baltimore, MD. Go to New Orleans, LA. Go to Skid Row in CA. Go to any damn state in this fucked up shithole! Again, you’ll get a clue; quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry!

Do you still think that the next Tamir Rice will thank you for continuing to do nothing? Because that is exactly what you do when the only thing you continue to do is to pick up yet another protest sign and march and yell at the whites that “BLACK LIVES MATTER!” If that is the case, then why is Tamir Rice dead and no one is being held accountable for murdering him? Get real and cut the bullshit!

What I Am Thankful For On this Day, Thanksgiving Day!

Thanksgiving my ass

 

I really had no thought of writing anything on Thanksgiving Day because several of my dear blogger friends took the time to post some wonderful Thanksgiving Day blog posts. And I have already re-blogged them to my heart’s content. But I just want to take this opportunity, and this is off the top of my head, to let them know how appreciative I am to know that there are some people that truly think for themselves. It does my heart good to know that there are some who will not simply conform to the dictates of a fucked up society, but who will indulge themselves in a bit of critical thinking. Try it sometime! It does my heart good to know that there are others like me who refuse to ‘like’ all up and down on some lies that are told to us about Thanksgiving Day and because we are too damn lazy, we refuse to do our own research and dig for the truth even if we have to dig underneath a pile of outrageous lies to find it.

We have a goddamn president that is to this very day, hell bent on preaching the vile ass lies about how some pilgrims came to this continent and loved all up and down on the Indians and he even compared the ‘pilgrims’ to the Syrian refugees. This vicious, chronic, habitual liar had the goddamn nerve to call a band of genocidal, homicidal maniacs, “refugees!” My tongue would have twisted so goddamn bad trying to get that lie out, that it would have eventually twisted itself loose and escaped from my lying ass mouth! We are still sitting somewhere swallowing the lies of warmongers and war hawks who are just as bad as the depraved and vile shits that fucked up the Indians and then commenced to hunting down innocent people in Africa and dragged them here to become slaves. These so-called ‘pilgrims’ were not the salt of the earth; they should have been banned from the earth, as barbaric and brutal as they were and their progeny are still at it to this very day.

Kill! Kill! Kill! How can that ever be defined as benevolent, caring, compassionate, concerned and humanitarian? How can breeding and then killing millions of birds for Thanksgiving Day dinner tables ever be considered, humanitarian? How can consuming that which had a beating heart ever be considered, humanitarian? But that right there tells me something. It tells me that we so-called ‘humans’ have never been synonymous with ‘humanitarian’ for how could we be? We send our own offspring to die in wars started by depraved rejects from hell and we don’t have a problem with that. We know that the ‘animals’ that we consume on a daily basis have stood in piles of filth, stood in their own shit inside a hell and then were butchered as though they were never living tissue with eyes, brains, legs, a stomach; the same organs that we possess. Is it any wonder that the ‘human’ race is destroying itself? No, it is not! Because when we can destroy that which has never done us any harm simply because we want a steak; when we can destroy that which would leap gracefully away from us in fright and terror, we are not ‘human’. We shoot deer for sport. We consider this to be ‘hunting’. What a brave soul we are to ‘hunt’ down something that cannot defend itself against cowardly bastards with hunting rifles. You are not some great game hunter and yet you strut around with your trophies as though you have done something to be proud of. You’re nothing but a coward! You’re not fit to stand there looking all prideful beside the body of a dead lion or a dead deer or whatever else you think it your right to hunt down and kill because you are a depraved piece of filth! A cockroach stands heads and shoulders above your worthless ass!

Now, I am speaking to the hypocritical motherfuckers that went on and on about that big game hunter that went out and shot and killed Cecil, the lion. Why are YOU sitting down to a turkey dinner? Your hypocrisy petticoat is showing. I certainly did call it right when I called you all ‘hypocrites in my post, Trophy World because, indeed, that is what you are. How are you any different from the piece of dead shit that killed your beloved Cecil, the lion? Oh, that’s right! You did not actually kill that big, stuffed dead bird that you just carved into. So that makes it alright, doesn’t it. No, it does not! You were complicit in that bird’s death just as if you had killed it yourself because you were silent as the grave you are headed for because you stood by when you knew that millions of turkeys would lose their lives just so that you could display your hypocrisy and fake ass devotion to family and tradition. The next time a motherfucker kills Cecil, the lion’s brother’s brother, shut the fuck up! And don’t put that goddamn shit up for me to read because I fucking don’t appreciate reading about hypocrisy, ignorance and fake ass outrage! Save it! Because you have no cause to feel justified in your fake ass outrage over Cecil, the lion’s death while you sit there and unzip your pants because of your expanding stomach thanks to gorging yourself on a dead turkey! And then head to the doctor so that he can give you another pill because of all your weight-related health issues and then cry me a river!

And this brings me to something else. Our instinct for killing is not just for the so-called ‘animals’. We turn against other so-called ‘humans’ and we hunt and kill them for sport. We self-righteously tell ourselves that because this person’s skin tone is darker than ours, he or she does not deserve to live. They are not ‘human’. They will become just another trophy; another notch on this gun. Oh, this killing thing is sweet. It is so sweet that we can still sit up in church on a Sunday morning and bow our heads and pray about how good, benevolent and kind we are because we just put $100 into the collection plate and we wrote a $50 check out to Goodwill. See? We’re so good and thoughtful. Let us pat ourselves on our goddamn saintly ass back. That’s ‘humanitarian’. Again! No, it is not. That is hypocrisy. You’re a goddamn hypocrite and you are deceiving yourself into believing that you are good and decent when you are just flat out, dead filth. You don’t have a heart and you sure as hell don’t have that soul that your preacher or reverend is going on and on about. You are not going to some heavenly reward for being a humanitarian do-gooder. You are going to get planted and that’s it. Kid yourself all you want, but this is it. Do you honestly think that there is going to be some ‘god’ that is going to grant you the right to murder with impunity in some paradise beyond the stars? Do you honestly think that your filthy ass is going to enjoy the riches in some heavenly mansion? Yeah! Bow your stupid head and continue to pretend that you are the next best thing to a saint. You are nothing but a lying, hypocritical piece of nothing. I don’t care what your net worth is; you are worthless. I don’t care how much perfume you spray on or how much cologne you use, it will never conceal the stench of death because that is what you are; dead. And your ass is not in purgatory; that would be too good for the likes of you. This is it. You’re either a decent ‘human’ because you have got a heart or you are ‘dead’ and most of you are dead and you are the very ones who are posting “Happy Thanksgiving” posts back and forth to each other. You are the very ones that are gathering with the other thankful ‘dead’ pretending and postulating for the benefit of who? Because you have already proven that you are dead. Why else would you just go with the flow? You know what this day called, “Thanksgiving” is all about, but because you have no heart, you go on pretending that it is all about displaying fake ass love with family members you secretly hate and wish were dead so that you can swoop in and scoop up whatever trinkets and baubles and insurance benefits they may have left behind.

So yes, I am thankful because I am not sitting down at a table with a big stuffed dead bird on it; complete with all the trimmings. I am thankful because I am not gorging myself on the remains of a carcass of what used to be a living, breathing, beautiful bird. I am thankful that I am not sitting around the table with people that I detest and loathe all the while pretending that I am pleased to be with them. I am thankful that I am not a hypocrite; who after having prayed for 30 seconds, gorged myself on a dead bird, then immediately headed out the door to get a head start on my capitalism fix. I am thankful that I think for myself and have never felt the need to conform to the dictates of a fucked up society filled with the walking dead(and no, it’s not just a TV show). I am thankful that I can say that I am indeed, human and alive!

And no, I do not wish you a “Happy Thanksgiving” because I know what this day stands for and I have never stood for genocide, theft, lies, slavery, torture, rape, hunting, hypocrisy, corruption, brutality, barbarity, murder and war and I certainly don’t stand for ignorance. And if you are celebrating this day, you are too ignorant for words! And if you have a problem with this, bite me!

“Welcome To America, Refugees From Syria!”

Tell that to the shits that are the reason why my Negro ass was born in Amerikkka!

Tell that to the shits that are the reason why my Negro ass was born in Amerikkka!

 

As a descendant of African slaves, I want to take this opportunity to welcome Syria’s refugees to America. May you have a better time of it here in America than my ancestors did. And include those of us who are descendants of slaves, as well. I want you to know that even though Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless than white families, we still hope that you fare better than we do. And even though Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population, Syrian refugees, you will promptly step right into housing and what is so great about that is that millions of people are in line waiting on affordable housing to open up. They have been on waiting lists so damn long that many have given up and are homeless. But we have housing available for you, refugees from Syria. Ain’t that sweet?! So, you come right on over here and get at the head of the line, in front of ALL the people that have been waiting for years for affordable housing. Come on over here and we shall roll out the red carpet for you because we have no refugees over here in America. We have no homelessness epidemic here. We have no homeless tent cities in Detroit and in California. We have no Skid Row in Los Angeles because Los Angeles is NOT struggling to manage rising homelessness beyond skid row, now is it?

Homelessness in Los Angeles has spread far beyond the area known as Skid Row. The number of people living on the streets has risen 12 percent in the past two years. And now some parts of the city are struggling to manage big homeless populations they’ve never seen before.

Nope! Skid Row is just a figment of my imagination just as it is a figment of my imagination that homeless people are living underneath Las Vegas. And many are war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and can you believe it? There are homeless children living in these tunnels as well. But refugees from Syria, they welcome you as well.

I want to state how very glad I am that Obama and the other war hawks and warmongers finally deemed it ‘humanitarian’ to host refugees from war-torn countries that were made so by said war hawks and warmongers. Never let it be said that a warmonger does not have a heart even while continuing to make refugees out of innocent men, women and children because these war hawks and warmongers like Obama and John ‘mad dog’ McCain and Lindsey Graham and every other piece of nasty and vile shit that IS the U.S. government is giving up their digs to host these Syrian refugees, are they not? Hell no! They are not! As American citizens, once again, we must overlook our own homeless refugees so that other refugees can come here and thrive and enjoy the good life that is Amerikkka. Never mind that almost two million Black people in Amerikkka call prison, home. Never mind the fact that child poverty in Amerikkka is at its highest point in 20 years, we have more than enough poverty to go around and then some, but we welcome you, refugees from Syria. We welcome you!

Over in Detroit, those poor, mostly Black folks have had their pensions cut thanks to corrupt city managers and criminal politicians, not to mention the massive water shut-offs that could affect 300,000 Detroit citizens.

Detroit’s Water War: a tap shut-off that could impact 300,000 people
“Every day, we’re shown that black lives, black quality of life, black communities, don’t matter,”

It is from this incredible web that a challenge to the water shut-offs is emerging. Community organizations have filed a human rights complaint to the United Nations, demanding Michigan state impose a moratorium on the shut-offs. UN experts have already responded critically.

Yes, refugees from Syria, the situation is so bad that citizens of Detroit appealed to the U.N. for help and for their efforts, they got nothing! But when you come to Amerikkka, you will more than likely have running water. You will not be homeless. Your pension will not get cut. Sweet, ain’t it? And the people of Baltimore, MD are experiencing the same thing and they are Black, also. The only thing that you will have to contend with is that pesky ‘terrorist’ thing. Yes, white Amerikkkans fear Muslims or anyone from the Middle East because their government via the media told them to because there are NO ‘homegrown’ terrorists in Amerikkka. When a racist kills a Black person, that is not terrorism. Racists burning down Black churches is not terrorism. Racists lynching Black people is not terrorism. Racists gunning down Black people as they sit in church is not terrorism. A terrorist has been defined as a ‘person or persons of Middle Eastern origin’. The white good ole boys that call themselves the Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Brotherhood, The Aryan Circle and the ‘White Brotherhood Alliance’ and so forth and so on are AGAIN, just good ole boyz having fun. They are not extremist groups. They are protectors of the empire, Amerikkka. They keep us niggaz in our place; these slave patrols alongside the Amerikkkan gestapo pigs. But nevertheless, you won’t have to deal with them, refugees from Syria because they are too busy busting caps all up in Black asses. If you stay out of the South, the Dakotas and Texas, you should be fine; living it up in your nice house with a two-car garage in a nice section of Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine; you know, all the states that have less than a 1% Black population count.

I hear that several of you have already settled in Connecticut. Good for you!

Syrian Refugees Come to the U.S. to Find a Place They Did Not Expect

“Why did they bring us if they didn’t want us?” said the 33 year-old husband and father, recalling his initial reaction through an Arabic interpreter. “We are coming to an open country.”
“A country with freedoms,” his wife, 23, said.

“We felt rejected,” her husband said. “We were depressed. How could that be the freedoms that we hear about?”

The couple were driven instead to this Connecticut city of about 130,000 people, joining seven other Syrian refugee families who have come since July. Integrated Refugee and Immigration Services, a nonprofit organization that works with Episcopal Migration Ministries, one of the nine aid agencies contracted with the federal government, had swiftly arranged for their arrival.

Ahhh..don’t feel rejected! At least not until your ass is lying on a slab in the morgue so full of bullet holes, you look like Swiss cheese! Don’t feel rejected until you are driving down the goddamn street, minding your business and a cop stops you and hassles you for no good reason and the next thing you know, you’re found hanging in a jail cell in Texas and word is, “You were depressed, grabbed a handy trash bag and commenced to committing suicide.” “Why oh why did I not put on my turn signal? If I had, I would not be placing this bag over my head and asphyxiating myself!”
Do not feel rejected until your children decide to play in a park with a toy gun and the cops arrive and within two seconds, they are lying dead on the ground. Do not feel rejected until you sell a dime bag of weed to a white guy and you get thirty years for that inside a FOR PROFIT PRISON. Do not feel rejected until the unemployment rate for Syrian refugees is in the double digits. Do not feel rejected until you get called, “Mud people,” attempt to take out a conventional loan to buy a house, have excellent credit, qualify for the conventional loan but get steered to a subprime mortgage loan and lose said home and end up homeless solely because you are Black skinned. And thanks Wells Fargo from all the Black people that are out on the street, thanks to your racist ass lending policies.

So, refugees from Syria, you should do just fine because you are not a descendant of African slaves and therefore, Amerikkka SHOULD welcome you! Please step over or on us. It is what everybody else does. Join the pig force and riddle us with bullets or arrest us on bullshit charges. It is what everybody else does. Discriminate against us when the government gives you enough money to open your own business. It is what everybody else does.

And for anybody that has the nerve to think that I wrote this because I hate Muslims, go fuck yourself! I am writing this because I have been volunteering for years too numerous to count and I am sick and goddamn tired of the hopelessness I have seen and continue to see when we don’t help the homeless refugees in Amerikkka; when we don’t help those who are persecuted here in Amerikkka because of the color of their skin. Where is the goddamn assistance for them? These people have been waiting for someone to recognize their plight and do something to help them. Where were the agencies that quickly came to the aid of these Syrian refugees; the ‘Episcopal Migration Ministries’ when it came to helping this man?

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A fire killed a homeless man Friday in his tent near the Mississippi riverfront north of downtown while he was struggling to keep warm with a propane heater.

A little before midnight on May 29, emergency personnel responded to a report of a burn victim under the Interstate 394 bridge at Dunwoody Avenue, according to police reports. Miller said police told him that a man walking nearby heard screaming and found his father on fire.

Or this man?

His father was taken to the hospital with burns on about 70 percent of his body, Miller said. The lower half of his body had to be amputated, and he was placed under heavy sedation. He was also put on life support.

Who helped him? His goddamn family didn’t even help him, but we have help for Syria’s refugees. Charity begins at home. Why overlook the people that are living like refugees right here in Amerikkka? What? Are these people less important or less worthy of help because they are not from Syria? These people are fighting a war every day, as well. It is called, “The War To Survive!” And it is a war! Ask any homeless person. Ask any Black person that has buried a loved one because of pure, unadulterated racism. Ask the poor in Detroit who are without running water. Ask the poor in Baltimore who are also without running water. Ask the Black men and women who are sitting inside a FOR PROFIT PRISON for selling a dime bag of weed. Ask the unarmed Black men, women and children who have been killed for no reason; no probable cause. Ask them about being refugees in a country that never accepted them as human beings, much less as citizens that enjoyed rights. Ask Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Jordan Baker, D’Andre Berghardt Jr., Tanisha Anderson, Rumain Brisbon, McKenzie Cochran, John Crawford, Denzell Curnell, Michelle Cusseaux, Ezell Ford, Akai Gurley, Dontre Hamilton, Jason Harrison, Darrien Hunt, Marquise Jones, Tamir Rice, Ernest Satterwhite, Yvette Smith, Cameron Tillman, Victor White III, Levar Jones, Vernicia Woodard, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, and the goddamn list is endless. I had to stop somewhere but the racist ass pigs in blue or brown sure as hell don’t. But you won’t have to worry about this happening to YOU, Syrian refugees. Your skin does not have OUR deep melanin!

So, don’t bellyache about you coming to Amerikkka and not receiving the kind of welcome you were expecting. Be thankful for what you can get because all of those Black people named in the aforementioned paragraph did not get the opportunity to choose to come to Amerikkka thanks to these filthy white asses over here fucking up their country, their ancestors were kidnapped and dragged over here to become slaves and they and myself are unwanted. But you’ll fare better than they ever did. Count on it Syrian refugees!

Oh, and lest I forget, the Indians would also like to welcome the refugees from Syria because they too, are doing so great! You see, the plight of the Indigenous Peoples of America is so bad that the United Nations sent a special rapporteur, S. James Anaya to lead an inquiry, the first of its kind. What he found was a range of social ills, high rates of poverty, alcoholism, domestic violence and low educational attainment.

According to S. James Anaya, “these are a product of what’s been referred to as intergenerational trauma spanning decades, really centuries, since the founding of the country and before.”

The Indians would just love for some more folks to illegally enter this country that by rights, should be theirs, but that pesky little problem was solved by a little small pox, firewater, beads and genocide by guess who? The same shits that have turned Syria into a bombed-out shell of a country with people fleeing left and right; refugees of course. Whitey white ass just cannot contain his thirst for ALL things material, nor can he contain his blood lust. It must be sated. Indian blood has been spilled by the ton and that did not stop the white’s thirst for blood. The blood of Negro or Black people has been spilled by the ton and AGAIN, this has done nothing to stop the white man’s thirst for blood. Nothing can stop it! This is why you are refugees; people of Syria, and this is also why you are wondering why you are being rejected by the very same white filth that rendered you, homeless. Let’s see how you fare here at ground zero with us Negroes and  Indians! Yeah! Read the sign to see how well WE are faring here in AmeriKKKa!

 

Welcome to Amerikkka! Home of the stupid, the racist and the ignorant! And last but not least, the killers!

Black Lives Don’t Even Matter To Blacks!

 

blacklivesmatter and bernie sanders

 

 

Bernie Sanders leaves Seattle stage after event disrupted by Black Lives Matter protestersSanders was the final speaker on a long program held at a city park. Shortly after he took stage, a small group of protesters from a Seattle chapter of Black Lives Matter took the microphone and demanded that the crowd hold Sanders “accountable” for not doing enough, in their view, to address police brutality and other issues on the group’s agenda.

After sharing a few local grievances with the crowd, including school disparities and gentrification in Seattle, the protesters asked for a period of silence to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown being shot and killed during a confrontation with a police officer in Ferguson, Mo.

I will believe in the legitimacy of the #BLACKLIVESMATTER ‘movement’ when I see concrete evidence that according to the group, Black lives really do matter, but to-date, I have seen no evidence of that.

Disrupting Bernie Sanders as he speaks at an event in Seattle is not going to prove that this group really believes that Black lives do indeed, matter. Au contraire! When the group, instead of disrupting political events,  begins to focus on SOLUTIONS to the problems that plague Black lives in America, then and only then will I take the group seriously and again, as of yet, I see nothing to make me take this group seriously. Au contraire!

When #BLACKLIVESMATTER begins to hold Blacks accountable for the $1.1 trillion dollars that flows through our hands each and every year straight to the whites, Koreans, Chinese, Indians, Pakistanis, etc., and to hold Blacks accountable for instead of pooling our money together to build and open our own grocery stores, banks, medical institutions and start other businesses that are Black-owned, Black supported and that lift up Black communities, we take that money and AGAIN, give it to the whites, the Koreans, the Chinese and every other group and then we wonder why we need Section 8 vouchers, I will start taking the #BLACKLIVESMATTER group, seriously. We wonder why we need food stamps. We wonder why we need Medicaid. We wonder why we need someone to wipe our nose for us. If we didn’t take our money and run right out and buy that new pair of Timberland boots, run out and buy the latest Nikes to come down the pike, run right out and buy designer label after designer label, run right to the Chinese Carryout, run to the Korean liquor store, run to the Korean nail and hair salon, and instead invest our dollars in building up our own communities as in starting food co-ops, housing co-ops, credit unions and the like, we would have something. We would not need to show our ass to get attention from those that we insist should do our fighting for us. We have got to fight for ourselves. It should be crystal clear by now that no one is going to fight our battles for us. No one is going to make us matter until we start acting like we matter. And we are not doing that. We are doing the opposite. All Black people are not ignorant. We have the potential to become doctors, lawyers, judges, bankers, franchise owners. It is not that other groups are smarter than us. It is just that we look to movements and marches and groups and organizations like the NAACP to do for us when that is SO not happening.

A ‘movement’ is not a hash tag, nor is it spouting off at the mouth and displaying your ignorance. The group’s collective ignorance is not hard to see. This group is nothing more than a joke and not a very funny one at that; it is a travesty and the tragedy is that many Black people are falling in line with this joke because #BLACKLIVESMATTER is just a diversionary tactic, set in place to divert Black people from what really matters. If Black people woke up to what they could collectively do on their own, they would be a force to be reckoned with but if ‘the powers that be’ continue to write the script and pound it into us daily that if instead of realizing and recognizing what we should be doing, we instead allow ourselves to be sidetracked by some made up hash tag with a hidden agenda that has nothing to do with Black people making gains in America, we will continue to never realize our potential. And this is all done by design. Find out who is sponsoring the group; financing the group. Find out why the group is only making noise, but is lacking in any substance. Why is the group focused not on building up Black people, but instead seems hell bent on solely getting a message to, I really don’t know who, that #BLACKLIVESMATTER. Black lives are never going to matter to the whites, that should be well understood by now. It is time that Black people took a stand and stood up and came together to help Black people. No one can solve all of our problems for us. We have to take some responsibility for what becomes of us. We know the white man is hell bent on trying to eradicate us and since that is a fact, why would a group, #BLACKLIVESMATTER continue to tell Black people to march to the same whites that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and all the other Black people marched to in the 1960s? What has been accomplished if Black people are still to this very day, marching to the same group that they’ve been marching to for over 50 years? What is wrong with you? Why is it that the Koreans can come to America and work together and open up their own businesses? The Pakistanis do it. The Chinese do it. Every other group can get their act together, but we cannot. I do realize that we got our start in America as slaves, but our ancestors had it worse than we do and we know this and yet, we make a mockery of their memory because if they could see how far we have not come as a race of people, they would be outraged and ashamed because as many of us that the white man kills, we are also on the streets doing his job for him. Is this really necessary? By now, we should not still be marching to the white man, begging for some relief or joining some jumped up ignorant screaming fools that simply crave attention and only manage to make themselves appear ridiculous and yes, ghetto. Will we never get it?

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times, you cannot expect to get different results by continuing to do the same thing over and over again. You are going to get the same results. Stage another protest and what has that accomplished? Petition City Hall to close down some more streets and parade all up and down the streets of America and what has that accomplished? I’ll tell you what it has accomplished. It has accomplished tired, aching feet and shoes with worn down soles and that is all. Your limp ass protest signs dating back to the 1960s are just as irrelevant today as they were back then. What has changed? Jim Crow? Jim Crow is throughout this land. Where do you live, Black folks? Are you rubbing shoulders with the whites? Or are you segregated in Black communities? Are your children rubbing shoulders in school with their white counterparts? How many Black-owned businesses are you entering? Can you not easily tell when you have entered a so-called ‘white neighborhood’? And why is that? It is because you are still just as segregated today as when Jim Crow laws were first put on the books. Still think that you can drink out of any water fountain? Take your Black ass inside an exclusive country club asking for a glass of water and see what you get for your troubles. Walk by a ‘gated community’ and see how fast the cops show up either before or after some vigilante has mucked up your day or night.

Black lives will only matter when Black people finally decide that their lives really do matter. We should not need Black lives to matter to the whites. That is never going to happen. We as Black people must first matter to ourselves and we don’t. We don’t like our hair. We don’t like our own people because their skin is too dark or their skin is too light or they talk too ‘white’ or too ‘Black’ or they don’t have the ‘cool’ clothes  or the ‘cool’ smartphone or some such nonsense. When will that shit cease to matter? When Black lives really matter and not just junk that we buy, then and only then can we go about the business of accomplishing something worthwhile. And the #BLACKLIVESMATTER group matters not, nor is it helpful or relevant to the awakening that must first take place in the heart of each and every Black person in America. You’ve got to matter to you. It is not about how much you matter to someone else. Matter to yourself and maybe then, you will change your perception of what is important and realize that it is not about Timberland boots and Nikes and rims and fake nails. And remember, the reason why we are doing so poorly as a people in America is because we are divided. And you know the saying. “Together, we stand, Divided, we fall.” And that is why Black America, we are falling. It is because we do not stand together!

#BLACKLIVESMATTER cannot stop you from falling. That movement will not catch you because that is not what #BLACKLIVESMATTER is all about. Do your own research. Educate yourselves and stop listening to the lies. Stop reading the script of others and write your own. Make your life matter and in the process, maybe then, you will understand that if your life matters, then so does your neighbor who is also more than likely Black, and together, you can start a ‘constructive’ movement. You will not need a Section 8 voucher that pays some unconcerned white landlord hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to house you in the poorest section of town, the “Black section.” Is #BLACKLIVESMATTER addressing this issue? Is #BLACKLIVESMATTER addressing the inner city school-to-prison pipeline? Is #BLACKLIVESMATTER addressing the Black child poverty rate? The Black unemployment rate? Is #BLACKLIVESMATTER using its donations to build safe, decent, affordable housing because that government backed HUD mess certainly isn’t working. HUD doesn’t give a damn where you live or even if you live. Why do you think congress takes more money from HUD each year? It is because HUD is a failure. It is a gigantic black hole that swallows taxpayer money and there is no return on that investment. Don’t believe it? Don’t take my word for it. Read this!

I say, “Black Lives don’t even matter to Blacks!” Make a liar out of me, I dare you!

A Torn And Bloodied Flag!

 

flag1

The eyes of men behold

A torn and bloodied flag

They lied unto themselves

That it was more than just a rag.

 

You satisfy its thirst for blood

Not theirs per se, but yours

And gladly will you die

In endless, senseless wars.

 

Unfurl that hated symbol

Of the oppressed and of the dead

Pledge allegiance to your slavery

Upon your blood, that flag is fed.

 

Salute the stars and stripes

But know what it is you do.

Those stars are bombs and drones

And the stripes are a slave’s tattoo.

 

Its tattered tales of glory

Are shredded by the truth

And as its seams are ripped apart

You feed to it, your youth.

Keep feeding a symbol that stands for stolen lands and lashed backs and for the spilled blood of all the other innocent human beings that have been murdered, all over a lie! The lie IS America! This country was never about freedom and democracy and justice. Look at its history. When has freedom, democracy and justice ever reigned in this hell hole? It never has. You are fed patriotic bullshit. You are made to stand and salute a tattered and bloodied symbol that symbolizes everything that his country stands for; rape, genocide, torture, war crimes, hypocrisy, enslavement and all things vile, obscene and barbaric. There has never been one shred of decency that IS or WAS or WILL ever be America. Salute that blood stained and tattered shit of a flag, if you will, but count me the hell out! I spit on it!

 

 

 

Motherfuckers, This Means War!

The Huey Newton Gun Club

Who dragged our ass to America
to become the hated ones?
Don’t you blame us for your shit
while you kill us with your guns.

Yes, you’re depraved, diseased and vile
but we’re not the punks you mistake us for.
And when next you come for us
motherfuckers, this means war!

Black people get mad as hell! Get fucking fed up! Don’t let this shit go unchallenged because when we do, it continues. Don’t expect some goddamn assistance from that lying piece of ‘presidential’ filth and damn sure as hell don’t expect no help from Eric ‘Hold UP, Wait a minute’ Holder! If we don’t want our ranks reduced to that of the Indians, and we ALL fucking know why there’s only about 45 Indians left, then we’ve got to take matters into our own hands. In every single goddamn state that allows the whites to openly carry guns, you do likewise. In every goddamn supremacy filled state in this shithole that allows the white shits to carry around concealed weapons, you do likewise. Buy your guns and arm yourselves because I for one am not going out like some punk ass bitch. Those laws that were put on the books with regards to the 2nd Amendment that the fucking skinheads and Klan motherfuckers go on and on about, put that 2nd Amendment right to ‘bear arms’ to use for you. It ain’t meant just for those godless fucks, it’s meant for you too. They dragged our ass over here and now want to kill us because of some vile ass shit that’s on them? Oh hell nah!! Meet like with goddamn like and see how fast they change the goddamn laws! Fight motherfucking fire with motherfucking fire. Go out and buy you some damn guns!

…and for the goddamn son-of-a-bitch that had a motherfucking problem with my language, go to hell, you white bastard! Now, how’s THAT for toning my language the fuck down?!!! You wanna know who I ALWAYS aim to please? ME!!! Now, fuck you!

Vladimir Putin, Watch Your Back!

NWO-Attempted-Assassination-of-Vladimir-Putin-But-Got-the-Wrong-Plane

 

Vladimir Putin, watch your back! The West has got it in for you. I don’t know why you expected the shits here in Amerikkka to play all fair and square like when they’ve never done so before. You’re up against psychotic, rabid criminals otherwise known as demons, if you will and the only way to control the bastards is to vaporize them and you should have long since commenced to getting it done. Now, these demons are in a position to blame you for some more shit that they’ve engineered to cause your downfall. It was only a few months ago that I beseeched you to blow this shithole deeper into the pits of the christian’s hell. I have no idea why you have wasted time on attempting diplomacy with these psychotic demons. This shit over here ain’t human. You mean, you don’t know that by now? Have you taken a good look around at what these psychotic demonic shits have caused? Look at the carnage in Iraq and Gaza and Afghanistan and Libya and Syria and in Central America and anywhere else that trouble, strife, and brutal dying is in progress.

 

Don’t continue to wait for Yellowstone to blow. It will, but you don’t have time for that show to get started. You don’t have time for the final earthquake that will shake this shit up and turn it into a hot ass lava milkshake. They’re gunning for you because chances are, it was YOUR presidential plane that these psychotic demonic shits were after. You had a lucky escape THIS time but don’t think that your luck will hold out. And you know only too well why they have it in for you. You and Russia and the rest of the BRICS are about to put paid to the petrodollar and that puts paid to the demonic shits that hold their devil worshipping rituals and dance around naked holding their limp dicks in one hand and some Viagra in the other with a whore standing on each side of their worthless demonic ass. They know this shit is toast over here. Hell! Wal-Mart is crying the goddamn, “Where are my motherfucking poor ass customers with their foodstamps?.” blues. It’s that damn bad! It ain’t just Wal-Mart’s sales that are suffering, the rest of the retailers have joined in with their wailing and screeching and Target has even fired an executive over poor sales performance and let us not forget that Target is still reeling from that massive data breach over this past holiday season. And even Macy’s sales are plummeting. Go figure! The only thing that’s getting funding over here in this shithole is the military and that’s so we can continue funding the Israeli war machine and genocide on the Palestinian people because only Israel can claim the HOLOCAUST, you know, exactly what Israel is perpetrating on the innocent people in Gaza.

 

You see, Mr. Putin, Amerikkka has priorities and stealing and killing and plundering and pillaging and raping and enslaving are at the very top of the list of priorities and don’t forget while we’re engaging in all of that, we’re calling it humitarian intervention. We’re calling it bringing democracy. We’re calling it policing the world. We’re fucking hypocrites, always have been and always will be.

 

Mr. Putin, you are well aware of how this country was founded. The Indians were killed off, the slaves were stolen from Africa and a declaration of independence was finalized and can you believe it? In this declaration, it was written that, “All men are created equal,” and guess what? These demonic shits were slaveholders, now don’t that beat all? We’re fucking hypocrites. So that means, you can’t play nice with this shit. This demonic shit is having none of it. You better act like you know, get with the fucking program that this mess ain’t hardly playing with you. They are not sane. They are not even human. You’re ex KGB, surely you know some of this already.

 

I’ll let you in on a little secret, unless you destroy this shithole before it destroys Russia and every other country and nation on this planet, you will never get a moments peace from these demons and the reason why I am fearless in posting this is because I am Black and I was damned by these demons before I was even born and it only gets worse. So, it wouldn’t hardly fuck up my motherfucking day if you vaporized the hell out of this shithole. So get to it as there ain’t a goddamn ‘human’ in sight! If you really love Russia, you’ll do what needs to be done and stop tiptoeing around these worthless fucks. We’re already done for. We’re already dead here, they’ve seen to that. We have no representation. Hell! Look at our infrastructure, it’s already on the verge of complete collapse. A goddamn drought in California. Las Vegas is running out of water and that ain’t hardly a problem for me, a fucking ‘sin city’ should run out of water. Roads end in sinkholes. Bridges collapsing into rivers and lakes. Trains derailing crude oil into our drinking water. Hydraulic fracturing is polluting our drinking water. Mass shut offs of water is happening in a city that is right by the Great Lakes. The taking over of our water supply has commenced. Even goddamn China is syphoning water from the Great Lakes and buying up property by the neighborhood in Detroit, getting set for gentrification once they run the few remaining Black people up out of there. And if you seriously think I care what happens to this shithole, by all means, I ask you to please think again. If you can’t see that we’re already done for, then I don’t know what else to say.

 

I’ve stated this before and I state it again, unlike the demonic shits here in Amerikkka, you love your country and it shows. Unlike the demonic shits here, you practice restraint and have attempted to play fair and square with these demonic shits but you must understand, you’re going about it all wrong. I hope to hell that someone in Russia can wake you up to what you’re actually up against over here. It damn sure ain’t playing fair. It damn sure is out to ruin you and your country and it damn sure as hell ain’t fucking human!

 

PESTILENCE Is Already Here!

_h353_w628_m6_otrue_lfalse

“The Homeland Security agency responsible for removing immigrants who are in the country illegally will run out of money by mid-August unless Congress approves President Barack Obama’s emergency request for $3.7 billion to help deal with a flood of child immigrants crossing the border illegally without their parents, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says.”

http://news.msn.com/us/obama-official-says-immigrant-kids-draining-funds

Well, well, well, ain’t that a bitch? “In this country illegally, eh?” Who the hell ain’t here illegally? Unless your goddamn ass is one of the indigenous peoples of America, your ass is here, illegally. Unfortunately, the Indians’ immigration policy was largely ignored as once the Indians realized that the European settlers were hell bent on relieving them of their land, they attempted to put a deportation system of their own into the works, but their deportation system was no match against their conquerors.

And so now we come to this, who can stay and who must go. “You, yeah you! Over there, you stay but you, hell naw, now git! The Statue of Liberty ain’t talking about you! We don’t care how tired, how poor and how huddled you are, we got fucking standards, ya know and you don’t meet ’em, so git!”

That’s some real shit right there and we’re some real shits, we are because this nation is a nation of immigrants and don’t hand me no bullshit about how if they come here, legally then all is well and good because we’re ALL fucking here illegally. I don’t care if you were born here. Somebody in your family came here from elsewhere and most likely got off at Ellis Island and now you want to sit back and point fingers at the dirty, the tired and the poor who cross the border looking for a better way of life or to escape gangs, violence or political persecution. I understand that these are children whose parents have sent them over and that many have relatives who live in America. So, what’s the problem America? This here is the land of opportunity for all, ain’t it? We’ve got lady liberty shining her beacon to welcome ALL immigrants to the shores of America, don’t we? Well? We fucking do or we don’t! If that ain’t the goddamn truth, then fucking lady liberty needs to step the fuck up off her pedestal, why don’t she?

What’s coming beats ALL. I read a quote from some ignorant piece of shit about how the immigrant children from South America have brought PESTILENCE to the shores of Amerikkka! HUH? Say WHAT?!!!! The fucking PESTILENCE is already here motherfuckers! It’s called, VULTURE CAPITALISM! It’s called, INCOME INEQUALITY! It’s called the 1%! Millions of Americans are already suffering from a pestilence. So, clue your stupid ass in, why doncha? And as if that isn’t bad enough, it is my understanding that some of the child immigrants are from Guatemala. Now, do you knuckleheads recall the Guatemalan STD Study? Huh? Well? Of course you don’t want to recall that because that right there was a PESTILENCE that America visited on poor unsuspecting Guatemalans, oh ye christian hypocrites of fake ass faith!

U.S. scientists knew 1940s Guatemalan STD studies were unethical, panel finds

“U.S. government researchers who purposely infected unwitting subjects with sexually transmitted diseases in Guatemala in the 1940s.

At least 5,500 prisoners, mental patients, soldiers and children were drafted into the experiments, including at least 1,300 who were exposed to the sexually transmitted diseases syphilis, gonorrhea and chancroid, the commission reported. At least 83 subjects died.”

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/us-scientists-knew-1940s-guatemalan-std-studies-were-unethical-panel-finds/2011/08/26/gIQA2CxLoJ_story.html

…and you want to talk about a goddamn pestilence crossing over into America when Amerikkka IS a goddamn pestilence! Always has been and always will be no matter who the fuck crosses over. Just ask the Indians, you know, those who never gave you permission to bring your worthless ass over here to begin with. Ask the Indians about who brought pestilence to them in the form of small pox blankets. Why doncha? Bunch of goddamn chicken shits, sitting somewhere in your cozy air conditioned penthouse most likely nursing your own goddamn pestilence that you got from some ‘high priced hooker’. You’ve got some damn nerve, spouting off at the mouth while you nurse your pestilence called, gonorrhea with the hounds of hell nipping at your heels, hell bound hypocrite that you are!

Amerikkkans seriously make me want to puke over the outrageousness of their hypocrisy. This nation was supposedly founded on the principle that “all men are created equal,” and yet slavery was rampant and the Indians were being indoctrinated into the heathen settler’s way of life after having had their land stolen from underneath them and now that the European heathens are at the helm of this lopsided sinking, stinking shithole barge, they now want to pick and choose who gets to cross into THEIR Amerikkka. You know what motherfuckers! Fuck You!

“Immigrants from Central America, bring whatever the hell you want to bring over here. Escape that Homeland Security shit and fuck up their goddamn day because you ain’t had time to board a boat and get processed at Ellis Island since you’re fleeing a goddamn war zone!”

If ‘whites’ Were Not Allowed?

earth1

The white savages killed off so many Indian tribes.

They stole their land with firewater and worthless beads as bribes.

The Indians never stood a chance against savages with a gun.

A bullet will always out pace a horse, even at a run.

An entire continent could not escape the thieving ways of man.

They plundered Africa’s wealth and stole its people for their plan.

With blood dripping everywhere, the savage whipped the broken slave.

We know who fucked the world up and who no good could ever save.

White savages will forever enslave all Black and Brown folk,

and if they rise to try to fight, they’re hindered by their yoke.

No good did ever come from the white savages rule on earth,

as they seek, destroy and kill amidst such peals of mirth.

Is it funny to this day, what those savages have wrought?

Do you find the time to laugh since in slavery, you’ve been caught?

When they finally destroy this world with their nukes and fracking sites,

and since the people have been cowed and deprived of all their rights

will the last to close their eyes see beyond the mushroom cloud,

to what this world could have been like if ‘whites’ were not allowed?

I know that this world would NOT be as fucked up as it is now. Everywhere on this planet that a ‘white’ foot has stepped; devastation, disease, plunder and death has followed. No other group has managed to crawl all around the world bringing with them that much destruction.

On August 2, 1939, just before the beginning of World War II, Albert Einstein wrote to then President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Einstein and several other scientists told Roosevelt of efforts in Nazi Germany to purify uranium-235, which could be used to build an atomic bomb. It was shortly thereafter that the United States Government began the serious undertaking known then only as “The Manhattan Project.” Simply put, the Manhattan Project was committed to expediting research that would produce a viable atomic bomb.

http://inventors.about.com/od/astartinventions/a/atomic_bomb.htm

The brilliant light from the detonation pierced the early morning skies with such intensity that residents from a faraway neighboring community would swear that the sun came up twice that day. Even more astonishing is that a blind girl saw the flash 120 miles away.

Upon witnessing the explosion, its creators had mixed reactions. Isidor Rabi felt that the equilibrium in nature had been upset as if humankind had become a threat to the world it inhabited. Robert Oppenheimer, though ecstatic about the success of the project, quoted a remembered fragment from the Bhagavad Gita. “I am become Death,” he said, “the destroyer of worlds.” Ken Bainbridge, the test director, told Oppenheimer, “Now we’re all sons of bitches.”

(Not true! You’re worse than mere ‘sons of bitches’!)

After viewing the results several participants signed petitions against loosing the monster they had created, but their protests fell on deaf ears. NATURALLY! The Jornada del Muerto of New Mexico would not be the last site on planet Earth to experience an atomic explosion.

The Story of Hiroshima

Immediate Aftermath

In less than one second, the fireball had expanded to 900 feet. The blast wave shattered windows for a distance of ten miles and was felt as far away as 37 miles. Over two-thirds of Hiroshima’s buildings were demolished. The hundreds of fires, ignited by the thermal pulse, combined to produce a firestorm that had incinerated everything within about 4.4 miles of ground zero.

To the crew of the Enola Gay, Hiroshima had disappeared under a thick, churning foam of flames and smoke. The co-pilot, Captain Robert Lewis, commented, “My God, what have we done?”

‘God’ had nothing to do with it!
