“I know we did the legal, moral, and ethical thing that night,” Says Jonathan Mattingly, One Of The Kops That Was Involved In The Murder Of Breonna Taylor

 

 

So, that white, racist bastard is saying that killing Breonna Taylor was “legal, moral, and ethical?” Okay, so let’s just say, for the sake of argument, would he be saying the same thing if Black kops had bust down the door of his home and murdered his wife during a ‘no knock’ warrant? Would he have been calling what those kops did, “legal, moral, and ethical?” Hell no!

Breonna Taylor Cop Attacks ‘Thug’ Protesters in Email Rant Ahead of Grand Jury Decision

As Louisville braces for a grand jury decision on the police killing of Breonna Taylor, one of the officers involved is standing by his actions in the botched raid, claiming subsequent unrest is the work of “thugs” who have created a “good versus evil” mentality.

That racist bastard is saying that the protesters who are fed up with police killing Black people for no goddamn reason are the ‘thugs’; “evil,” while the kkkops that are breaking down the door of innocent people while they sleep that resulted in them killing an innocent woman are the “good” guys? Is that racist, ignorant fuck for real??!!! I thought that kops were supposed to take a test that made sure their IQ was more than their shoe size and that they actually understood what constituted a thug and ‘good versus evil.’

“It’s sad how the good guys are demonized, and criminals are canonized.” – Jonathan Mattingly

Yeah! It is sad that criminal kops are canonized! Yes, that is indeed, outrageously sad! You stupid fuck, you are not a ‘good guy’ if you can stand somewhere and state that shit when you, along with others just as racist as you, broke down a woman’s door, a door you had no right to break down, kill her by shooting her EIGHT goddamn times, don’t even bother to render aid as she bled out because your asses were too busy searching her apartment for drugs and only afterwards were the paramedics called and by then, long before then, Breonna Taylor had lain there and died and never knew why. It was not like she was dying from some lingering illness. She was sleeping in her bed, quite unaware that you THUGS were hell bent on breaking down her door on a NO KNOCK warrant and still lied that you knocked. Why the hell would you KNOCK on a NO KNOCK warrant, you clueless, stupid, racist fuck???!!! But yet, you want to sit on your damn filthy, depraved ass and talk about ‘good versus evil’ and how you are the ‘good guy’? Get this crazy fucker off the damn streets! Lock his ass up for being too goddamn crazy and stupid for words and that is just for starters. Lock his ass up for being a racist, out-of-control thug in a blue uniform who is also a member of the KKK.

“Now go be the Warriors you are, but please be safe! None of these ‘peaceful’ protesters are worth your career or freedom. God speed boys and girls,” he concluded. – Jonathan Mattingly

“WARRIORS?” I thought they were supposed to be law enforcement officers who were duly sworn in to SERVE AND PROTECT and so where the hell did WARRIORS come in at? That’s some military shit. Those bastards are not on the ground in Afghanistan. They are not fighting some unknown so-called ‘enemy’ in Iraq. They are on the streets of this shithole called “Amerikkka” and are referring to themselves as WARRIORS. WHAT.THE.FUCK.

You see, that is the very mentality that permeates every single police department in this shithole. They are not of the mentality that they are to “serve and protect,” they are of the mentality that they are the ‘good’ guys while every American descendant of slavery is the ‘bad’ guy/girl. Now the truth comes out. That shit is what they are taught at the police academy. They are not taught that they are just supposed to arrest people who are murdering other people or who are burglarizing places or shit like that. Those thugs in blue uniforms are told to view themselves as WARRIORS heading for the battlefield and so “Fuck shit up!” And that is exactly what they are doing. They don’t give a shit about our lives and whether or not we live or die because we are assuredly dying by their hands and that shit is sanctioned by the very government that originally enslaved us and make no goddamn mistake, we are just as enslaved now as our ancestors were for if not, why are there over 2.3 million of us locked behind bars and the rest of us, at any given moment, can have our door knocked down and us shot for protecting our home against WARRIORS in blue uniforms sanctioned by the government to murder us with impunity for why else is the city of Louisville, KY battening down the hatches in preparation for shit to pop off? Because they know that the grand jury has been instructed to come back with NO INDICTMENT ON ANY WARRIOR that had a hand in the murder of innocent Breonna Taylor because make no mistake, the ONLY two ‘GOODS’ in that apartment were Breonna Taylor and her boyfriend. The BAD SHIT bust through the goddamn door and murdered Breonna and now this sick, twisted, racist piece of shit wants to send an email to his WARRIOR crew that he is behind them and that they are all GOOD GUYS and so continue to go out there and be GOOD GUYS and murder innocent people who are merely sleeping in their bed because THAT shit is “legal, moral, and ethical.” Murder innocent people as they go about their fucking business because, after all, the government of the United Snakes of Amerikkka is behind THAT shit!

No first aid was given to [Breonna] Taylor and she “lived for another five to six minutes” after the shooting before dying on the floor of her home. Meanwhile, officers across town had already located Jamarcus Glover, the subject of their drug investigation.

Those goons had no reason to even be at Breonna’s address. The ‘subject of their drug investigation” was already apprehended and in custody and yet, that no good, racist bastard is still saying that what they did was “legal, moral, and ethical.” I am just beyond done. According to this thug, “good is evil and evil is good.” To him, the protesters are evil and he and the rest of his crew who entered Breonna Taylor’s apartment and murdered her are “good.” What kind of sick mind does he have? Where is the psychiatric field when it comes to diagnosing THIS shit? How do you allow someone with THAT mindset to put on a badge, give him a gun and a blue uniform and state that he should be allowed out on the streets as a Kop? You do that shit by design which means that ALL of them have that same mindset and so that is why we are seeing so many American descendants of slavery meeting their fate the same way and the shit will continue.

The criminal injustice system is a setup to send descendants of slavery two places; to prison and to the grave and in all actuality by going to prison, most do eventually end up going to the grave. So to the grave, it is. Every Amerikkkan institution is set up to send American descendants of slavery to the grave; from the medical, educational and criminal institution; ALL send us to the grave. That is their sole purpose when it comes to American descendants of slavery. If you didn’t know, now you know. Your doctor is out to kill you. The education system in America is out to kill you because we have all heard of the “school-to-prison pipeline,” and of course the criminal justice system is doing what it was designed to do, send us to the grave.

Wake the fuck up and fuck this shit up! It is the only way! They are already sending the National Guard to Louisville, KY. Why? Because they intend to arrest and fuck up as many of you as they can because you have got to realize that it’s their game and if we don’t play by their rules, it’s curtains for us. Don’t make their job easy. If you got to go out, go out fighting! The white man is no warrior. The white man is a scared ass, punk ass bitch and that is why Amerikkka has won no war in recent memory because the white man has no heart. All he has is hate and hate blinds a motherfucker to the point whereas he cannot even see straight. Remember what Malcolm X said.

“Any time Uncle Sam, with all his machinery for warfare, is held to a draw by some rice eaters, he’s lost the battle. He had to sign a truce. America’s not supposed to sign a truce. She’s supposed to be bad. But she’s not bad any more. She’s bad as long as she can use her hydrogen bomb, but she can’t use hers for fear Russia might use hers. Russia can’t use hers, for fear that Sam might use his. So, both of them are weapon-less. They can’t use the weapon because each [country’s] weapon nullifies the other’s. So the only place where action can take place is on the ground. And the white man can’t win another war fighting on the ground. Those days are over. The black man knows it, the brown man knows it, the red man knows it, and the yellow man knows it. So they engage him in guerrilla warfare. That’s not his style. You’ve got to have heart to be a guerrilla warrior, and he hasn’t got any heart.”

“It takes heart to be a guerrilla warrior because you’re on your own. In conventional warfare you have tanks and a whole lot of other people with you to back you up—planes over your head and all that kind of stuff. But a guerrilla is on his own. All you have is a rifle, some sneakers and a bowl of rice, and that’s all you need—and a lot of heart.”

– Malcolm X

Malcolm X was right and that is why the whites had him killed because we would have listened to him and even Dr. King was starting to come up out of his ‘peaceful this and peaceful that’ haze. He was about to realize that the whites weren’t listening and since he is dead and nothing has changed, then that shows you that the whites did not take him seriously and they still don’t. Every damn January, they put some damn shit up on TV about “I Have A Dream” while gentrifying poor Black neighborhoods. They shoot a Black woman in her home in the middle of the night and call that “legal, moral and ethical.” They place their knee on a Black man’s neck and press down on it for damn near 10 minutes, murder him and then put it on, “he died from fentanyl use along with vicious gout and COVID-19.” How the fuck is that recognizing Dr. King? Who the hell is buying the whites’ bullshit that they give a shit about Dr. King? If Dr. King was still alive today, the whites would initiate a “no knock warrant” on Dr. King’s address and fill him with bullets and make sure he received no medical attention and claim that shit was “legal, moral and ethical.” None of us matters to the whites, not even those coons who prance, preen and parade around Hollywood. You better act like you know! We’re going to have to battle these motherfuckers. That’s where we are now. Look around you. It’s on and you know it!

 

George Floyd, We Failed You!

George Floyd, We Failed You!

 

George Floyd, we failed you.
You sighed and then went still.
We also failed Tamir Rice,
and all the rest on their list to kill.

Poor Michael Brown lay in the sun,
but his body cooled so fast.
And Trayvon’s ghost still roams the night,
for being Black, he was harassed.

Eric Garner, we failed you too.
What is there left to say?
They choked the life right out of you.
And no one was made to pay.

Oh we get upset and burn some things,
and then we quickly get over the pain.
They call us all “bad thugs,”
but why you are dead, they can’t explain.

They always blame the victim,
for acting out of rage
“Our anger should be doused!”
So says the wise old sage.

Something’s wrong with that old sage,
He does not speak the truth.
A man is dead who did no wrong.
He was buried while in his youth.

Twelve, eighteen and twenty-two,
and on and on it goes.
These are the average ages
of Black bodies laid out in rows.

The funerals never stop.
And the buckets of tears are shed.
The lines are out the door,
but no one says what needs to be said.

Peace will never be ours to know
in this country built by slaves.
When have they ever cared for us,
these primates out of caves?

Never think the day will come
when they’ll stop the killing spree.
The time is now for you to act!
You are a slave, you are not free!

In Minnesota, where protests began this week after the death of Mr. Floyd in Minneapolis police custody Monday, Gov. Tim Walz pleaded with residents to obey an 8 p.m. curfew. Mr. Walz said he was fully mobilizing the state’s National Guard after a night of rioting and violence, leaving open the possibility of requesting federal troops; forces from other states had also been readied to deploy to Minnesota.

“Gov. Tim Walz pleaded with residents to OBEY an 8 p.m. curfew.”

 

Obey! Obey! Obey! That is what the fuck we have been doing for over 400 years in this shithole; obeying the fucking white man! Our ancestors heard that same shit from slave owners. “Slaves obey your masters!” “Til that land!” “Grow that crop!” “Pick that cotton!” “Build the White House!” “Clean my clothes!” “Get on your knees wench!”

The whites even claim that shit in their fucking BUYBULL. “Slaves obey your master!” But who were MADE to be slaves in Amerikkka? Who are the descendants of slaves in Amerikkka? We are! George Floyd was a descendant of slaves in Amerikkka! And look what the fuck they did to him; the same as what they intend to do to us all. You have only to look at the history of this shithole to see that the whites have no intentions of ever letting us forget that we are still SLAVES! George Floyd is not the only Black man to have had to plead for his life to a white piece of shit that was put in a uniform for the express purpose of killing us. Eric Garner was not the first and George Floyd will not be the last.

And yet that piece of filthy, racist, bottom feeding, scum sucking slime that sits his debased, engorged ass inside the White House had the unmitigated gall to call us “THUGS!” when his ass is the biggest damn thug of all, along with those who wear badges and uniforms throughout this shithole and who are also stationed all across this godforsaken planet, fucking people up just because they can. Donald Trump has said that white supremacists are “good people.” Donald Trump also stated that the whites who went to the state capitol in Michigan with assault rifles were just tired of being in quarantine and should have the right to get haircuts.” But let that have been some Black men toting guns around town and showing up at state capitols demanding to be let out of quarantine and their Black asses would have been shot so full of bullets, they’d ALL have looked like Swiss cheese on a slab in the morgue and don’t you ALL fucking know this! No National Guard was called out on those hate groups that took guns and rifles to the state capitol in Michigan. No curfew was placed on them. Why is that? The president condoned that shit, but let Black people have a problem with getting murdered for no goddamn reason by dirty, racist kkkops and we’re the “THUGS?” Fucking seriously???? Look at this shit in the video! You know as well as I do what would have happened to them if they had been Black! They’d ALL be dead; riddled with bullets from SWAT teams from ALL over this shithole! The laws that the whites put on the books don’t apply to them, they fucking apply ONLY to us! This shithole should still be on FIRE from when Michael Brown was shot and killed and his body lay out in the blazing sun, uncovered for hours! This shithole should have been ablaze up til now! Look at the blatant hypocrisy! Look at the blatant and outrageous racism and hatred directed at us for having the audacity to have had our ancestors dragged over here by the ancestors of the vile shits that are still murdering us to this day for something their ancestors put into play! FUCK.THEM.ALL.

Look at that shit and you tell me that Black people could have gotten away with doing that shit! I fucking dare you! George Floyd was doing nothing more than trying to purchase items in a corner store and for that, he was publicly lynched. The man did not even have a gun on him. Eric Garner was standing on a New York City Street armed with just some loose cigarettes when he was choked to death over cigarettes. Tamir Rice was playing with a toy gun in a park and was murdered two seconds after kops showed up. Aiyana Stanley Jones was sleeping in her bed when she was shot in the head by thugs in blue uniforms. Breonna Taylor was asleep in her bed when she was shot 8 times and murdered by thugs in blue uniforms. Sandra Bland was hanged in Texas jail cell because she failed to use the proper turn signal. John Crawford was murdered by thugs in blue uniforms because he was holding a toy gun inside a Walmart. Walter Scott was murdered by thugs in blue because he owed child support. Michael Brown was murdered by thugs in blue because he was suspected of stealing cigars. Jamar Clark was murdered by thugs in blue because of a traffic stop. Philando Castile was murdered by thugs in blue because he was merely OBEYING the order to produce his identification. Freddie Gray was minding his business on a Baltimore street and was murdered by thugs in blue uniforms for merely talking with acquaintances. Amadou Diallo was shot 41 times by those thugs in blue uniforms for merely trying to enter his home. Botham Shem Jean was murdered by a thug in a blue uniform for being suspected of burglarizing his own apartment. Rumain Brisbon was shot to death by thugs in blue uniforms because he was carrying his prescriptions. Akai Gurley was shot by thugs in blue uniforms in a dark hallway in November of 2014 and as of today, no one knows why or has been arrested for his murder. Kajieme Powell was shot and killed by thugs in blue uniforms for allegedly stealing an energy drink, the kkkops lied on him and said that he threatened them when witnesses said the man’s hands were by his side. As of today, no one is in prison for murdering him.

Ezell Ford was lying down when he was shot dead by thugs in blue uniforms and as of today, no one is sitting inside a prison cell for murdering him. Dante Parker was tasered to death by thugs in blue uniforms and as of today, no one is in custody for murdering him. Thugs in blue uniforms claimed that Tyree Woodson smuggled a gun inside a police station and used it to commit suicide. Yeah, that makes perfect sense. Those thugs in blue uniforms claim that Victor White killed himself while handcuffed inside a police car. Yeah, that also makes perfect sense. Yvette Smith was shot by police as she opened the door to them following a domestic disturbance call. The thugs in blue lied on her and said she had a gun. She did not and as of yet, no one is in custody for murdering her. McKenzie Cochran was also choked to death by thugs in uniform and as of yet, no one is in custody for murdering him. Jordan Baker was unarmed when he was shot dead by thugs in blue and as of yet, no one is in custody for murdering him. I could keep this going all damn day long, but the point should be well made; those thugs in blue uniforms are killing Black people because ALL other whites are behind them doing so. Those thugs in kop uniforms have relatives and some of those relatives are standing on the street right now pretending sympathy and empathy for what is going down when they are just as guilty as those they protect by their deafening silence over their racism!

American descendants of slavery, do NOT be fooled by the whites who are now pretending that they give a good goddamn over the murder of George Floyd by racist kops! This shit has been going down since forever and when did ANY whites give a damn enough to call for that shit to cease? Make no mistake, the only reason whites are out there trying to be seen on the streets is because they are out of a job. They are using our protests to fuck shit up because that’s what whites do! They cower behind someone else to do their dirt and then their dirt gets blamed on someone else; namely us.

Those depraved, pasty faced demons are not in our corner. They have never been in our corner and they never will be in our corner. The system of white supremacy is upheld by them because in order for white supremacy to reign, there must be a certain segment of the population for them to ‘lord’ it over and that would be us. When the whites’ shit ain’t somewhere fucked up, you don’t hear a peep from those skank motherfuckers, but now, all of a sudden, they’re out there fucking shit up. It’s because their shit is fucked up! We are not the only ones who are filling out unemployment applications. Those whites are sitting somewhere in line, when they’re not smashing windows out, waiting on some free food from the food bank, as well. Don’t let those white faces in the crowds fool you! They are our mortal enemy and shall forever remain so! Keep your goddamn distance from them as they mean you much harm!

 

 

 

Know Your Enemy!

They make the rules for you to obey.
They hold the cards because they’ve got it that way.

They don’t play fair and they never will.
They break their own rules, but it’s you they kill.

They gave you a number and they gave you a name.
They sold your body and they did it without shame.

They made you a slave for you to clean up their mess.
They destroy your home and they say its progress.

They take your culture and they turn a profit.
They have you bowing and worshiping their prophet.

They try to steal everything you are.
They rule over you and they go too far.

They judge you and they say that’s fair.
They fill your days and your nights with despair.

They will always be your enemy number one.
They hate the beautiful dark ones kissed by the sun.

So yeah, you remember who initiated GENTRIFICATION! You remember who rendered you HOMELESS. You remember why your children go to bed in a homeless shelter. You remember why you are always the last hired and the first fired. You remember who the faces of the mass incarcerated are. You remember who the faces of the school-to-prison pipeline are. You remember why Black people have no real wealth. You remember who bulldozed our homes and turned them into freeways. You remember who murdered those in the Black Panther Party because they refused to believe that there were some “good whites.” You remember that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., tried that PEACEFUL shit and what did it get him? An assassin’s bullet aimed at him by the white establishment. You remember ALL of this shit and then turn around and look at that white piece of shit that’s shouting, “No justice, no peace!” and you tell them to get the fuck out of your face with their racist bullshit! Whites DON’T change. They are exact replicas of those that dragged our ancestors over here for if not, would we still be dying at their hands, just because, in the year 2020? You know the answer to that!

LeBron James: NFL owners hold ‘slave mentality’ toward players

 

Like they’re the only ones who do!

LeBron James claims that the NBA owners hold their slaves in higher esteem than NFL owners. The claim by James is that the NBA owners have no problem with their slaves displaying a minimal amount of ‘field slave’ mentality when something happens to get their goat up as was the case when George Zimmerman gunned down unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin. James and the other Black players were allowed to go so far as to wear hoodies onto the basketball court, ostensibly in honor of what Trayvon Martin was wearing when he was murdered by Zimmerman. Wow! Talk about being allowed to show your outrage! That was quite a display of outrage and solidarity with the field slaves those NBA owners allowed their house slaves to put on. They displayed such an amazing amount of outrage, I mistook them for dead people. I was quite outdone, I was. I hope you’re good at spotting sarcasm.

In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality,” James said. “And it’s like, ‘This is my team. You do what the f— I tell y’all to do or we get rid of y’all.”

James made the authoritative statement with star NFL running back Todd Gurley in the room, along with friend and business associate Maverick Carter, and Ice Cube. James then went on to express gratitude for the level of freedom NBA players are allowed to express themselves and voice their concerns.

“Yessum massa suh! We iz so glad you’ze gwine let us deesplaaa sum sort uh onering ov one uh hour own hue got hisself kilt by anovuh membuh uh de Klan, massa suh! It beez so kine uh u too let us due dis thang. We preciate yo kindness suh! cause dee massas o dee NFL don’t beez allowen dey slaves tu due dis!” – LeBron James

Seriously?!! Because that is basically what James was saying. How is his comment below any different from the one above it?

“I’m so appreciative in our league for our commissioner,” LeBron went on. “He doesn’t mind us having…a real feeling and to be able to express it. It doesn’t even matter if Adam agrees with what we are saying, he at least wants to hear us out. As long as we are doing it in a very educational, non-violent way, then he’s absolutely ok with it.” – LeBron James

He is REAL appreciative that his white massa allows him and the other Black players to express, in the most mild manner possible, their feelings as they pertain to racial injustice, police brutality and racism. Yes indeed, he loves the fact that his massa ALLOWS them to express themselves in a “very educational, non-violent way.” Adam, James’s massa, just demands respect of his slaves when they witness other slaves getting fucked up for no reason by other massas. As long as James continues to head onto that basketball court and do what massa pays him to do in order for massa to make money off his ass, he can, respectful like, protest for a couple of minutes PRE game, but when it’s game time, cut the bullshit because he’s cracking the whip. Like in why whitey pasty asses laud the hell out of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for his so-called ‘non-violent’ stance of peacefully protesting against a lack of Civil Rights, Jim Crow, racial profiling, police brutality, high-powered hoses, dogs, no voting privileges and the goddamn list of the like is endless.

One thing we will never, ever see and that is a holiday devoted to Malcolm X because Malcolm X was for none of that bullshit about non-violent, peaceful protesting because he knew what Dr. King knew, but Dr. King was too much of massa’s house slave to say that the only way the white man is going to sit up and take notice is if you cause the flow of money to his ass to dry up. He don’t understand shit else. That mean, mean green is all he knows because that means power and as long as he is the owner of us, he has got the power. Fuck his shit up and your ass is grass and LeBron James and every single last one of those players regardless of whether or not they play for the NBA or the NFL are well aware that there is a line they’d better not cross. Whitey pasty ass will yank that chain attached to their Black ass back in line so fast, every motherfucker’s head will be spinning. Go against massa and you’re on your own. Get some highfalutin’ ideas in your head and no more millions for you! And the next thing you know, you’re accused of sexually assaulting some piece of trashy, filthy, pasty-faced female of their species and the millions you did ‘earn’ will go to legal fees, or in other words, to yet another white massa and to her skank ass. Ask Bill Cosby who once fancied himself as head of NBC.

LeBron James cannot even blame hits upside his damn head for his stupidity and stupid he is, I don’t care how much his net worth is. If he can stand somewhere and publicly claim that his white massa is any better than the white massas that own those NFL players, then he really is dumb as fuck. And to ‘thank’ those who in his words are a “bunch of old white men,” for allowing him a bit of leeway when it comes to protesting serious shit going down is slave mentality on his part and yet he is so stupid, he can’t even see that. We are blind to our own slavery and that is a sad ass fact. Even those who are supposedly educated are still unaware they they are in fact, slaves. Nothing more, nothing less.

This just goes to show that the white man has done his job well. The slaves don’t even know they’re slaves. They look at other Black people and think they’re still under the boot of slavery when in reality, we ALL are. Nothing has changed. Just because some of us have chains that allow us to go further than others does not mean that we are free. Just because massa has allowed some of us to gain fame and fortune because of what we can do for him does not mean that we are free. Again, look at what happened to Bill Cosby. That man had enough money to enable him to think about buying NBC and where is he? Sitting his ass inside a prison cell for allegedly drugging in order to seduce what to me, looks like the most hideous monster to ever slither across this planet. And what’s more, at one point in time, he was grateful to his white massas for allowing him to obtain fame and fortune to the point where he threw us field slaves under the bus for allegedly “stealing pound cake.” He obviously thought his slave chains had been broken and he was free. Massa sure showed him! 

And so to ALL you house slaves out there, if you think that you are in a better position because massa seems to favor you, you’ve got another think coming. Because believe me, step out of line and massa will show you, quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry that your ass is just as meaningless as those of us who are considered massa’s field slaves. You’ve only got something he values more, but display a field slave mentality, rebel and attempt to fuck up massa’s ability to make more money off your ass than he does ours and you’ll find yourself just as fucked up as we are! Count on it!

 

A Black Rose In Bloom!

black-roses-in-bloom-one

Too dark, but yet, always seen
at each and every crime scene.
Whether you stand for peace or not,
whatever you do, it is all for naught.

You can be Dr. King with a dream
or Malcolm X with a Black power scream.
But either way, you’ll end up dead;
no life in you; just a tombstone at your head.

You can be a doctor walking home from work
and be shot because in that neighborhood, you should not lurk.
You go to school because you want an education,
but they peg you instead for incarceration.

They gave you a month to celebrate achievements
for all the assassinations, funerals and bereavements.
You are sent to their doctors to receive a cure
and told you’ve got bad blood; it just ain’t pure.

They say, “Vaccinate your children against this disease,”
while they fill you with lead paint; those who are your enemies.
Never look to the ones with no melanin in their skin
and expect to come out on top, or to win.

Their desire is not that you should ever thrive
but for all they do to you, you still manage to survive.
So, fear not that Trump will be the harbinger of your doom
for he too is powerless to stop a Black rose in bloom!

I wrote this because as we all know, we just finished ‘celebrating’ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and for all that has been going down, I don’t even know why. For surely he could never have perceived in his wildest ‘dreams’ that we would be where we are now, but then again, he most likely would not be surprised since it is widely known that he was about to change his stance from one of peaceful to aggressive because peaceful just wasn’t getting it done. And us Black folk had better go about things all peaceful like, if we are to go about at all. Otherwise, it’s a coffin for us.

And yet, they set aside a day in remembrance of a man they killed because he finally figured out what most of us know and that is that the white man is not going to give up his ‘white privilege’ that he has decreed unto himself; not without a fight. Malcolm X knew this and that is why he was called a ‘radical’ and assassinated. We need more like him but all we have is the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who are nothing more than sell-out dogs begging for the white man’s table scraps. They do not represent us. They are only out for themselves.

So, as we approach Black History Month that the whites have so graciously given to us to celebrate all their achievements of shooting, lynching or sickening us and our loved ones, we must remember to thank them for their generosity in giving us the month of February to be used as one short month of bereavement over the fact of mass incarceration, assassinations, lynching, gentrification, income inequality, low educational attainment, a school-to-prison pipeline,  mass homelessness, indifferent health care, eugenics experimentation and we must also thank them for allowing us to continue to play subservient roles that entail cleaning, cooking and other domestic type duties that we crawled into boats to come over here alongside all the other ‘immigrants’ to do. With friends like these, we don’t need enemies and yet, despite all of this, the Black rose still blooms! May it forever bloom in spite of and despite ‘them’!

When You Get Tired…..

break free

When you get tired of dying before your eighteenth birthday
 and when you’re tired of hearing that you’re worthless anyway,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the fire in your soul
 will burn through your body that is four hundred years old.

When you get tired of police brutality and the injustice of gentrification,
 and when you get tired of the school-to-prison pipeline of no education,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the marching on tired feet
 will not be enough to quench the thirst for liberation and you won’t accept defeat.

When you get tired of the National Guard getting called out to stop you
 and when they fire the shots at your tired, worn-out body, though that’s nothing new,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you must heed the words of Malcolm X.
For no man can continue to surrender to ropes tightened around innocent necks.

And when you get tired of mass incarceration because of the color of your skin
 and when the cops are on your ass from sun up to sun down, yet again,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you will listen to the anger in your heart.
For no Black man, woman or child can resist the revolution and you must take part.

And when the smoke has cleared and so many lie dead or wounded from the fight
 and when you think that what you did was all for nothing and that good is never right,
 that protest sign that you put down, shove it up the white man’s ass and turn around
And torch everything in sight; every white man’s asset, burn it to the ground!

When you get tired, my Black brothers and sisters, you will realize that protest signs, marches and hands raised in the air is not enough. When you get tired of hearing that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is to be revered for his non-violent stance of supplicating himself to his enemy and encouraged you to do likewise, you will then realize your only course of action and you will take it. The white man knows this and that is why he is hell-bent on incarcerating you off the streets; that is why he is hell-bent on donning that blue or brown uniform, once he sheds his white sheet, and commences to riddle you with hundreds of bullets. He knows what’s coming. You don’t. Not yet. But you will. Yes, that’s right. He already knows what his fate is and who is going to seal it, but you don’t. Not yet. But you will. And when you do, it is game over for him and he knows that!

I don’t even call it violence when it’s in self defense; I call it intelligence. –

A Change Has To Come!

time for change

A change has to come.
I don’t know where from.
But the present situation is untenable
and is most definitely, unsustainable.

Too many people are living foul
while the rich are forever on the prowl
for whatever else they can steal,
and their greatest joy is to kill.

You have only to look at the endless wars
and at the refugees who face closed doors.
Take a look at our militarized police.
Do you really think that shit will cease?

Wake up and rise up!
And put down the Kool-Aid cup.
Our ass is toast and what are we going to do?
Because I am getting screwed and so are you!

What have we to look forward to? Thanksgiving?
How the hell are you even making a living?
The hiring signs I see are all for part-time.
And after you pay your rent, you don’t have a dime.

This is not how it used to be.
But it’s the new norm for you and for me.
You didn’t think that police brutality was real.
And yet every Negro knew the deal.
The videos of murder proved you wrong.
And now you know why Negroes have been protesting for so long.
We were the bad guys or so you thought.
You were not subjected to the system that we fought.

The Black Panthers were all but wiped out.
And the assassination of Malcolm X was political without a doubt.
Martin Luther King Jr., was slain as well.
And the Civil Rights Movement went to hell.
If not, why are we still marching to “No justice! No peace?”
We are not even at the table and when they sliced the pie, we didn’t get a piece.
But you tell yourself that rioting and looting is not the solution.
So what should we do? Recite the words of the Constitution?

One way or another, this shit must end.
And my right to live, I will defend!

You Blacks Just Make Me Sick!!!!

Not ONE knew NOT to turn their back on THAT white shit???!!! Seriously???!!! For the love of ......!!!!!
Not ONE knew NOT to turn their back on THAT white shit???!!! Seriously???!!! For the love of ……!!!!!

You are punks and snot-nosed kids
since you lie down and take their shit.
You’re not worthy of Father’s Day.
Black boys, you’re too unfit.

You say that you’re a man?
Prove it and I’ll believe.
A man would fight, not run.
He wouldn’t cry on his mama’s sleeve.

Three punks got shot in church
by a boy with shit for brains.
Did they sit and sing a hymn
as the fear ran through their veins?

They never did a thing
to protect their queens that died.
But they welcomed in the fold
one they know has always lied.

Why would you turn your back
on an enemy that you know?
What the hell is wrong with you
when you will pray with your mortal foe?

You Blacks just make me sick
with your stupid, foolish ways.
You allow the enemy in
and wonder why you dig more graves.

You live in a state of hate
and the street names say it all.
They raped and lynched our ass
and for their bullshit, you still fall.

But you say that you’re a man
born of kings from the Ivory Coast.
And yet, it takes just one white shit
to make every Black ass, toast!

I sincerely hope that you stupid Black motherfuckers are enjoying Father’s Day even though it does not pertain to you. How in the hell did three so-called Black men, do not a goddamn thing but sit in a prayer circle and not only let six women get shot, but allow themselves to get shot dead? Were they just sitting there waiting on an epiphany from god or were they waiting on god to intervene and knock the goddamn gun out of this little white shit’s hand? Black motherfuckers make me want to puke when all they ever talk about is how they ain’t going out like some punk ass bitch and that is exactly how they go out! You motherfuckers don’t look at the goddamn news? You don’t know that your ass is on every fucking body’s hit list from skinhead cops to your average garden variety bigot? When are you going to figure out that it has been open season on our ass since the first white foot stepped said foot in Africa and was ALLOWED to drag us the fuck over here? And why would that be? Because Blacks are such MANLY MEN? Hell if that’s so! I don’t give a goddamn if the enemy has to fuck up several million of us with their goddamn guns, if the enemy is in my country of birth, damn it if he is going to take it the fuck over AND steal my motherfucking people and enslave them!

And yet Black people are always somewhere attempting to point to how smart the people of Africa are. I fucking can’t see it! If the Africans were so goddamn smart, would the whites be over there owning every goddamn thing and would they have had the ability to distribute AIDS and every goddamn thing else over there? The white bastards have not taken over China. Russia told the Nazis to fuck off! But Africa and Australia have been taken over by the whites when there was a majority Black population in both and we like to think that we are SO goddamn smart? Yeah! Put that stupid shit to rest ’cause it so ain’t true! That much should be obvious even to a blind man that’s been planted! And you stupid motherfuckers are still walking around saying, “We still believe that prayer changes things!” For real? So, will prayer take us back to BEFORE those nine people got whacked by a ‘son of the confederacy’? I didn’t fucking think so!

“It has been tough, it’s been rough, some of us have been downright angry, but through it all God has sustained us and has encouraged us. Let us not grow weary in well-doing,” said the Rev. Norvel Goff, a presiding elder of the 7th District AME Church in South Carolina.

Yep! Spoken like a REAL man! “God is gonna sustain and encourage us to keep getting our ass kicked,” so says the presiding elder. “Sweet GEEZUS! I believe! Oh what faith, I have!”

Gag me with a goddamn spoon!

Happy Father’s Day Malcolm X, to you and ONLY you! To hell with you Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and all the rest of you pansy-pants snot-nosed crybabies because you never could get your act together. Thanks to you, we got so many Black MEN now, it is ‘unreal’ and that is a fact because it is just NOT reality! Now you stupid lily-livered Black motherfuckers, suck on that! You’re NOT men, you’re fucking crybabies! So cry into those goddamn buckets that I have placed in front of you for your sad ass tears!

We Celebrate The Day Of Your Birth!

 

new Malcolm X

We celebrate the day of your birth and hence, your fame lives on.
We are not what you were about and we are not fit to speak your name.
We love to kid ourselves that what we’re doing, you would approve.
But there ain’t no way in hell that you’d still be playing the white man’s game.

When did you ever raise your arms in humble supplication?
When did you ask us to grovel and beg for a crumb from Massa’s table?
When did you ever trust a white man to see that justice would be done?
When did you ever heed their lies and remain trapped in Massa’s stable?

They claim there is a movement, but the movement died with you.
Only sell-outs and punks are left and that shit don’t get it done.
There is no man among the Blacks and that is oh, so true.
America’s slaves slave on, but you were Africa’s son!

We have no claim upon you, nor should we quote your words.
You told us who our enemy was and for that they shot you dead.
You said that we should prepare for war and this, we never did.
We are too fucking scared, holding up protest signs instead.

Oh yes, we got it going on and we owe it all to you.
You who said that words alone, would never bring us peace.
We bob our heads and shuffle our feet and get down on our knees.
We then turn and run and get shot down by racist ass police!

Today, May 19th, we celebrate the birthday of Malcolm X and Black people consider themselves to be honoring him by quoting him and stating that his fame lives on. If his ‘fame’ truly lived on, we would be not just quoting him but would have instead, acted on the words he spoke to us and we all know them because we’ve certainly copied and pasted them enough times. But what do we do? We continue to become filled with fake ass outrage over every single killing of Black people and even the victim’s families will do as told by Massa and get up and tell everyone to remain calm as if Black folks haven’t been too damn calm for centuries. Seriously?

This is how we honor a man that told us, “It’s got to be the ballot or the bullet. This is how we honor a man that told us, “We are African, and we happened to be in America. We’re not American. We are people who formerly were Africans who were kidnapped and brought to America. We didn’t land at Plymouth Rock, the rock was landed on us!” This is how we honor a man that told us that “Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you’re a man, you take it!” This is how we honor a man that said, “You can’t drive a knife into a man’s back nine inches, pull it out six inches and call it progress.” This is how we honor a man that asked us “Who taught you to hate the color of your skin? Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair?[…]”You should ask yourself who taught you to hate what God made you?” – Malcolm X May 19, 1925 – Assassinated February 21, 1965

So, Black folks, sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up over your celebrations of Malcolm X’s birthday because he would be ashamed of where we are now and what’s more, you dumb ass, scared shitless fucks know it!

Know Your Enemy!

 

 

 

Malcolm X2

They make the rules for you to obey.
They hold the cards because they’ve got it that way.

They don’t play fair and they never will.
They break their own rules, but it’s you they kill.

They gave you a number and they gave you a name.
They sold your body and they did it without shame.

They made you a slave for you to clean up their mess.
They destroy your home and they say its progress.

They take your culture and they turn a profit.
They have you bowing and worshiping their prophet.

They try to steal everything you are.
They rule over you and they go too far.

They judge you and they say that’s fair.
They fill your days and your nights with despair.

They will always be your enemy number one.
They hate the beautiful dark ones kissed by the sun.

Malcolm X knew who the enemy was and he was killed for it. Yes, I know, the Nation of Islam killed Malcolm X and if anyone believes that the U.S. government had no hand in it, then believe this; there are no guns in Texas! Malcolm X was called many things; radical, racist, an angry militant separatist, but despite all of this, he was always right on point. The truth, he told, got him assassinated. The truth gets you buried and if that means, to be set free, then it is a most fucked up way to be set free!

Sigh, here is the latest evidence of who OUR enemy is!

White SC officer charged with murder in black man’s death

Dramatic video that shows a white South Carolina police officer shooting a fleeing black man after a traffic stop has led authorities to file a murder charge against the officer amid public outrage over a series of deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of law enforcement agents.

The video shows Scott falling after the shots and then the officer slowly walking toward the man and ordering him to put his hands behind his back. When Scott doesn’t move, Slager pulls his arms back and cuffs his hands. Then he walks briskly back to where he fired the shots, picks up an object, and returns the 30 feet or so back to Scott before dropping the object by Scott’s feet, the video shows.

Walter Scott may have tried to run from the officer because he owed child support, which can lead to jail time in South Carolina until it is paid, Stewart said. Scott had four children, was engaged
