First They Came For The Blacks And…..

emmett-till

 

….and you fucking did nothing! So now, you can just shut the fuck up!

Seriously, y’all wanna go there?

All over my reader, all I see is “First they came for the Muslims and I did nothing…” Oh, so you wanna do something now? You’ve seen killing chokeholds, you’ve seen lynching, you’ve seen mass incarceration of an entire ethnic group and just recently a woman at the heart of the Emmett Till case has now stated that she fabricated her story but now that Muslims are having a hard time thanks to policies put into play by those who look like you, you now want to do something?

Woman at center of Emmett Till case tells author she fabricated testimony

It was the lynching that outraged African Americans, spurred the civil rights movement and etched the victim’s name in history: Emmett Till.

The 14-year-old Chicagoan was visiting relatives in the cotton country of the Mississippi delta on 24 August 1955 when he allegedly wolf-whistled at a white woman.

Three days later his body was found in the Tallahatchie river. Till had a bullet hole in the head, an eye gouged out and other wounds. The murderers had wrapped barbed wire around his neck and weighted him down with a cotton gin fan.

It was a ghastly crime that changed the United States but the woman at the center of it, Carolyn Bryant, long remained an enigma.

A few weeks after the murder, the then 21-year-old testified in court that Till had grabbed and verbally harassed her in a grocery store. “I was just scared to death,” she said.

The all-white jury cleared her husband Roy Bryant and his half-brother JW Milam of the crime. They later publicly admitted their guilt, saying they wanted to warn other blacks. Carolyn Bryant disappeared from public view.

Now, 62 years later, it has emerged that she fabricated her testimony about Till making physical and verbal advances.

“That part’s not true,” Bryant told Timothy Tyson, the author of a new book, The Blood of Emmet Till.

A fourteen year old child was most heinously murdered and over six decades later, the truth is finally revealed that a WHITE woman lied on a Black child that resulted in whites murdering this child in one of the most brutal of ways and now you debased creatures are sitting somewhere shouting to all and sundry about who “They first came for?” Which means your depraved ass came for Black people and everybody else and handed them their ass on a platter after having lynched them and blown their country to bits but now you’re all benevolent and empathetic when none of you are any different from the filthy, vile and loathsome worms that did this to an innocent Black child. Oh yes, I believe how merciful and full of good will you are just like I believe in GEEZUS and Santa Claus. And if there were any truth to any of your so-called ‘christian’ religion, then your damn god would have smote you into non-existence eons ago. But unfortunately for us, we still have to bear witness to the vicious shits that you really are thanks to your actions; that of continuing to attempt to push us off the face of this planet through gentrification, through mass incarceration, through a school-to-prison pipeline, through medical experimentation, through abject poverty, through racism, homelessness, income inequality and joblessness while you blame us for all our problems that you worthless beasts set in motion.

Again, a fourteen year old child was horribly murdered because of what? The color of his skin? Hell no! He was murdered because of what makes whites so goddamn ferociously racist; the fact that you’ve no heart or soul or empathy or conscience to berate you for what you do to others. You’re the walking dead. You don’t have to watch ‘The Walking Dead’ because you epitomize it. Everywhere you go, you bring that which you are; death! And yet you have the goddamn nerve to pretend that you are something you are not; merciful, kind and full of good will. Get the fuck outta here with that goddamn bullshit! You are now going to show the Muslims how outraged you are over their plight and you are going to do something about it even though you’re the very reason they have a plight!

When I read what had really happened to this child, was I surprised? Hell NO! Because anyone with two brain cells connected and working knew what happened to this child and that what was previously stated had happened was a big ass lie! But now, the whites are out marching through the streets demanding some rights. What rights are you missing? You ain’t missing a goddamn thing except a heart, a soul and a goddamn conscience; something you can never have because you are pure evil and death and you need to all just drop dead already. The sheer unmitigated gall of you having the balls to talk about when they first came for somebody like you ain’t what’s come for every goddamn body besides you motherfuckers. Somebody should come for YOUR ass! That’s what needs to happen because the world would get itself in order if we didn’t have the likes of you to deal with!

Ask me if I give a damn over how you take this post and that would be a resounding, “NO!” You know you ain’t shit! I know you ain’t shit! You ain’t never been about shit but yet there you go, just a marching through Washington, D.C. pretending to protest the likes of you. Are you fucking serious? Do you know how dumb and stupid you look protesting your own ass? I laughed when I saw you marching through the streets acting like you was really doing something when the only thing you did was show how hypocritical your ass really is that you can take to the streets and show your ‘white privilege’. Show that you can board a plane at any given time, leave home and no job because you’re a ‘stay-at-home’ mom’ that’s got nothing but time on her hands and look at you, just a protesting that you’ve got no rights. You’re the biggest goddamn jokes that’s ever lived but the sad fact is the joke is on us because you ain’t fucking funny, not at all!

So, yeah! First you came for the Blacks and since when have you stopped coming for us long enough to come for the Muslims? That’s exactly what I thought. You never stopped, you hypocritical, sanctimonious, evil spawns of where you SHOULD reside; in hell!

A Rage So Cold, Yet Hot!

rage

I just read a story
and it really made me feel,
a rage so cold yet hot,
my skin could slice through steel.
Oh, why must I feel?
The pain tears through my heart.
It hurts too much to hurt.
 When does the healing start?

The jails are overcrowded
with those who look like me.
And it is all done by design
by those who refuse to see
that their hatred plays a part
in why this scheme of theirs won’t end
until we are dead and on a cart,
with yet another funeral to attend.

I cannot make you care.
Hell! I’m too tired to try.
I’d be wasting precious time
because you want us all to die.
I look evil in its face
every time I look at you.
 And I hope there’ll come a day
when you will get what’s due.

I don’t believe in god,
nor will prayer help at all
since you sit up in a church
and yet, still heed hatred’s call.
What part don’t you get
that I can’t change my skin?
What did I ever do to you
to make my death cause you to grin?

I am talking to a wall,
of this, I am in no doubt.
But you see, I might explode
and when I do, I’m a take you out.
I know that I’ll not survive
and I have no problem with that.
But one of these days,
I’m gonna lay your ass out flat!

When you least expect me,
I’ll be lying in wait for you.
 And that day is gonna come
just as sure as the sky is blue.
Please don’t take me seriously.
I want the element of surprise
when I shove lead up your ass,
I guess then, you’ll recognize!

The tragic situation involving Abdi comes as Black Lives Matter has gained traction in Canada too, especially in light of outrage over recent police killings in the U.S. of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile as well as last week’s shooting of Charles Kinsey, who had his hands up and was providing assistance to an autistic man.

https://colouredjustice.wordpress.com/2016/07/29/the-story-that-sent-me-to-jail-juvenile-justice/

NEW YORK — I am writing this from inside a jail cell. I was put here for doing an unremarkable, routine bit of journalism, covering a sentencing in a murder. I won’t go so far as to say I was arrested since I was never read any rights. I am in the cell just the same.

Unfortunately, to be continued……..

Revolution! Revolution! Revolution!

 

Malcolm X quotes

 

 

It would seem that TPTB want to see some sort of re-action from ‘We The People’. Will it be peaceful or will it be violent? I do believe, THEY have decided the course that the next revolution will take. And this is just a little poem to get you in the mood.

The Revolution IS Coming!

How can I be content if my brother is in pain?
I would not turn my back if I saw my sister slain.

The world has had enough and the rich should lose their head.
Those who try and stop us will lie among the dead.

Peaceful, we have tried and it only got us where?
Poor, homeless or dead, they don’t really care.

No corner of the globe should hide these thieves and liars.
Light a billion torches, fry their spying wires.

Rest is for the dead and we have no time to waste.
They must know real fear, they must have a taste.

They have played their hand and took our rights away.
Do you think we’ll get them back if only we will pray?

Stand strong and hold your ground for they cannot kill us all.
Tear down the corporate sign and breach the outer wall.

Progress must be made in one form or another.
The protests, they have squashed and dissent, they try and smother.

Hate has been their tool and we must overcome.
They treat us just like dirt and they tell us we are scum.

You should not run, you should not hide for the stakes are just too high.
And when they come for you, will you fight or will you die?

There comes a time in everyones life when they must make a choice. We have been headed in this direction for some time. Those who initiated this hellish nightmare that is going down have been preparing for this while we were distracted. And now that what is in store for us can no longer be denied, you have a choice to make. You can either go out obediently and quietly or you can make a noise before you go out. Which is it going to be? They are hoping that we will continue to acquiesce to getting our asses handed to us. They are thinking that we have, for too long, been lulled into apathy and complacency and in addition to this, they have been destroying us little by little and weakening our bodies by filling us with poisonous toxins. This was intentional. For those of you who can remember a few decades back, you can remember a time when obesity was not as prevalent as it is today. And we did not need Facebook or Twitter to help us remember what we saw with our very own eyes because back in my day, people actually talked face-to-face with one another. There were no smartphones, nor was there Skype and the like. And I for one, can remember when food tasted good and was good for you, not like this garbage that we spend much more on than we used to and quality is non-existent.

As long as we are alive, we can change things. The obstacles may seem insurmountable but the alternative is not to be endured. If we don’t take a stand, we never will. Anything that comes too easily is not worth having and when you have given something your all and you see the results, you appreciate it more. Just something to think about as you look around and wonder what in the hell happened? This is not how we are supposed to live. Too many people are hooked on drugs to escape the pain of reality and this just should not be. Too many people are imprisoned today and this was not always the case. But you must understand that psychopathic monsters have been in control of us for far too long and it is time to show them that we will not continue to aid in our demise. We will resist. That is why those worms militarized AmeriKKKa and terrorized the rest of the world into submission. They expect the status quo to remain; they expect to continue their reign of terror, brutality, destruction and death.

Those of you who have family members in police departments all across AmeriKKKa, you should be telling your daddy or your spouse or your brother, cousin, uncle, aunt or sister, if they are a cop, that you will be facing them the next time another cop kills an innocent man, woman or child. You should tell them that just because they lost their humanity, it does not mean that you have lost yours. And for those of you who have loved ones in the military, ask them if they would appreciate some general commanding them to send a drone to kill you. Ask them if they were so ordered, would they murder you for standing up to tyranny, racism, brutality and war crimes. You may not want to hear the answer, but you should know all the same, if you don’t already.

We could all play a part to ensure a better future for us all. Most of us have children and we want our children to have a future. They will not if we continue to remain hypnotized by those who would continue to control us if we allow them to. Look into the face of your child. Go outside and watch the children playing together. We used to do that. We were not always looking at skin color. I know I didn’t. When I was a child, I did not play with someone based solely on their skin color, I played with them because they were human, just like me. Just like us all! Why did we, collectively, move away from each other; physically, spiritually and emotionally? If you can answer that question, honestly, then that is a start!

Weep For The Children!

tears I cry

Weep for the children
who are born into this world;
a world of seething hatred,
aimed at this poor little boy and girl.

You say you want someone to love
and you need an innocent child.
Take a look at the world around you.
What was paradise is now, defiled.

Think again about what you want
and what it is you are about to do.
You are pounded by the force of hate.
Is this what you want for your child too?

This is not about Planned Parenthood
and abortion was not on my mind.
I just see that innocence is doomed,
thanks to the evil that is mankind.

I am not trying to tell anyone what to do. I am merely stating that if it were up to me, I could not bring an innocent child into this mess. I just could not. And seriously, take a look around. What do you see? Wars, hatred, ignorance, bigotry, genocide, murder, lust, STDs, avarice, homelessness, mass incarceration, mass water shut-offs, poisoned water, millions of refugees, radiated oceans, dying sea life, climate change, rising seas; a world teetering on the brink of war. How in the ‘world’ could I ever think of bringing a child into this? I weep for the children.

Death By Accident!

chicago pig uniform

 

Now, it appears that the Chicago police are not only killing Black people intentionally, but also quite by accident! For the love of …….!!!!!!

Quintonio LeGrier, 19, was killed early Saturday by police responding to a domestic disturbance, along with downstairs neighbor Bettie Jones, 55, police said.

Jones was hit accidentally by the gunfire, the police said. Both victims were black.

Philosophy

 

So, the KKK pig dressed in blue did not intentionally kill 55-year old Bettie Jones? Bettie Jones just threw herself in front of the pig’s gun and it inadvertently fired and the shot accidentally killed her and off to the morgue, she went. No, that is not what happened, except for the “off to the morgue, she went, part.” What happened is called the two-for-one special. Officer KKK pig saw a chance to take two niggers out and he took it. What’s a little PAID administrative leave? Hell! What KKKop wouldn’t like to sit on their ass and draw a paycheck for ‘accidentally’ killing niggers? Yep! I see plenty of pale-skinned hands just a waving and some more shit!

We are expected to believe that Black-skinned Bettie Jones was UNINTENTIONALLY killed by a racist ass KKK pig in blue? That’ll be the day! Poor Bettie Jones was killed by an unintentional happenstance,  providence, something out of the blue? No, it was definitely IN blue. All decked out in blue.

Police did not immediately disclose the race of the officer, saying only that the officers involved will be placed on administrative duties for 30 days.

I shall now, CORRECT and make factual the above sentence for them.

“Police did not immediately disclose the fact that a member of the Ku Klux Klan intentionally, by a bit of luck, by fortune and fate, murdered Bettie Jones,  saying only that this particular KKK pig involved will be, as usual, placed on PAID administrative duties for 30 days pending nothing.”

So, Black folks! Remember, when you get tired of this endless shit, you’ll fucking know what to do, but until then, the KKK pigs will continue to intentionally AND accidentally by a bit of luck, by happenstance and fortune and by fate or by a fluke, kill you!

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!

$6.4 Million Dollars

Freddie Gray10

Case closed!

Baltimore officials approved a $6.4 million deal Wednesday to settle all civil claims tied to the death of Freddie Gray.
Gray suffered a fatal spinal injury while he was transported in a Baltimore police van in April.

The settlement does not “represent any judgment” on the guilt or innocence of the six police officers charged in the case, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said. “This settlement represents an opportunity to bring closure to the Gray family, the community and the city.”

Six point four million dollars
and you can’t spend a cent.
After attorney’s fees,
that money’s all but spent.

You are dead and buried.
They put a price on the how you died.
If there had been no witnesses,
again, they would have lied.

It’s cold comfort to you
that your family’s getting paid
by the City of Baltimore,
when in a coffin, you were laid.

And still, nothing’s changed.
The same shit is going down.
We protest another murder
of the Black and of the Brown.

We are all just refugees
 with no place to run.
They’ve got us hemmed in,
down to the last one.

Oh, we march down the street
like they did in sixty-three.
Dr. King and all the others
marched on Washington, DC.

Did it change things for you?
Oh that’s right, you can’t talk.
We’ll print another protest sign
and then we’ll take a walk.

Rest easy, Freddie Gray.
We shall surely make you proud.
Can’t you hear the pleas and cries
erupting from the crowd?

This time, it’s going to work;
this marching thing we do.
There’s no reason why it shouldn’t.
Ain’t that what we said to you?

So, the mayor of Baltimore says that, “It’s closure time!” Ain’t that a bitch? The coffin lid was ‘closed’ on Freddie Gray back in April. He has already gotten his ‘closure’. Can’t get more ‘closure’ than dead ‘closure’. What the fuck else is left? Oh right! The BIG payday. And who is going to get the bulk of the $6.4 million? The attorney and the ‘tax man’. What the Caucasoid giveth, he make sure you give it right back to his ass! Yep! Freddie Gray can rest easy now. Everything is cool. Mayor Rawlings-Blake made a statement and that statement is to all her ‘thugs’, uh…all of her constituents that ‘rioted’ that it is time for ‘closure’. See? Freddie Gray is happily silent over his $6.4 million dollar payout, his family’s lawyer can smile all the way to the bank and the City of Baltimore will get the majority of the payout back in taxes. All’s well that ‘ends’..uh…closures well!

Young black man jailed since April for alleged $5 theft found dead in cell

hampton roads regional jail in portsmouth virginia

A young black man arrested by police in Portsmouth, Virginia, on the same day that one of the city’s officers fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old, has been found dead in jail after spending almost four months behind bars without bail for stealing groceries worth $5.Jamycheal Mitchell, who had mental health problems, was discovered lying on the floor of his cell by guards early last Wednesday, according to authorities. While his body is still awaiting an autopsy, senior prison officials said his death was not being treated as suspicious.

What a goddamn shame! The article also states that Jamycheal Mitchell was accused of stealing a bottle of Mountain Dew, a Snickers bar and a Zebra Cake worth a total of $5 from a 7-Eleven and was arrested for this, sat in jail for four months and then died from ‘natural causes’ AT 24 YEARS OF AGE, after having lost 65 pounds and was emaciated at time of death.

A man was in jail for FOUR goddamn months, on a $5.00 theft charge???!!!! Let me get this straight! A Negro man in the south was in jail for FOUR goddamn months, on a $5.00 theft charge! Anybody still wondering why my Negro ass left Virginia? And I must not forget that ‘on that same day, members of the KKK dressed in their official ‘nigger killer’ outfits, and not their usual white sheets and hoods, gunned down another unarmed 18 year old Negro man because well…BLACKLIVESMATTER!

I’d like to pose a question to the #BLACKLIVESMATTER group, could you please hurry up and establish a southern chapter to deal with the issues of  Negroes located in the South because it would seem that the NAACC, formerly known as the NAACP fell asleep on the job? The National Association Advancing Corporate Coons dropped the ball on these two tragedies and on all the other tragedies that have been plaguing the Negro since that organization was founded.

Now, along comes #BLACKLIVESMATTER, that according to some, has been up and running since the murder of Trayvon Martin and since Trayvon’s murder, I am pretty sure that thanks in part to this wonderful and helpful, kick-ass movement, things have gotten better for the Negro in AmeriKKKa, except for these two ‘out-of-the-blue incidents that are anomalies and should in no way, shape or form be considered setbacks in the push for BLACKLIVESTOMATTER.

At the risk of repeating myself, die-ins are productive, how? Marches are productive, how? Lame ass limp ass protest signs are productive, how? Wearing out the soles of more shoes is productive, how? Waving my hands in the air like I just don’t care is productive, how?

Bear with me as I travel back in time and pose a question to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Dr. King, how do you feel about the concept of non-violent peaceful protesting seeing as how you and about a quarter of a million others marched on Washington, DC and you told everyone about that dream of yours and how ‘Black children and white children would hold hands together’ in peaceful harmony as brothers and sisters??

Let me pose another question, “Dr. King, in your ‘I Have A Dream’ speech, you said, “It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.”

So, when do you think would be a good time to revolt? Before or after the next ‘walking while Negro’ incident, the next, ‘driving while Negro’ incident, the next dead for being a Negro’ incident? Please tell me Dr. King, just when is enough, enough?

Dr. King, you also stated, “We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality.”

So, then, my question to you is, “When can the Negro forgo that non-violence stance that has not worked for us EVER and get with the program that things are not going to change with the continued printing of protest signs, the continued marching on tired feet and the continued calls for die-ins and marches?”

Dr. King, to these questions, I ask, “What say you?”

*crickets chirping*

“Thank you Dr. King! Your silence spoke more eloquently than did your ‘I Have A Dream’ speech because your non-violent, peaceful protesting stance did not get it done since your assassination is proof of that.”

There are so many Negroes that cannot speak because their blood flowed down every street in every city in every state in this hellhole called, AmeriKKKa and it will not stop if we simply print another sign, hold another rally, form another group and stage another die-in. There has not been enough ‘actual’ deaths? They’ll get around to killing you soon enough and so there is no need for you to rehearse for it!

Hundreds rally in Black Lives Matter Protest At State Fair

Police closed off Snelling Avenue so that protesters could march on the street. After leaving Hamline Park around 11:45 a.m, the march stopped briefly to block the intersection of West Minnehaha and Snelling avenues. Once it reached the Snelling overpass of Energy Park Drive, marchers lay down in a four-minute “die-in” to call to mind minorities who have been killed by police.

Please, by all means, let me know if something is actually accomplished because by now, who is NOT aware of the fact that so-called ‘minorities’ are being killed, relentlessly, by the police and by each other thanks in part to poverty, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass incarceration resulting in criminal records, massive under-employment and unemployment, income inequality and a myriad of other serious issues?

They Hide Behind Their god!

white death

Screams during the day;
rioting at night.
A president that’s indifferent
as he caters to the right.

Pulled over for no reason,
dragged out onto the street.
Hanged in a Texas cell
by those that wear a sheet.

Torn from his mother’s arms
by a cop that shot him dead.
A child was twelve years old;
to the grave, his coffin’s led.

They broke his neck and lied
just like they always do.
And then they called us thugs,
but that ain’t nothing new.

The white man simply laughs.
He’s got us by the balls.
We’re either dead on any street
or we’re behind his prison walls.

The white folks look at us.
And then they turn away.
They are all one and the same.
And yet, they have the nerve to pray.

They hide behind their god
as they sing Amazing Grace.
It was written by a slaver.
But isn’t slavery still in place?

You are fooled by all their smiles
and you sing a slavers hymn.
Forgiving, yes you are
 as they hang you from a limb.

I don’t know what is wrong with Black people. We are getting fucked up daily and yet, we are THE most forgiving group of people. Why is that? What makes us so damn accepting and forgiving? Why do we simply bend over and continue taking a heaping helping of ass whooping? One thing I can say about me, I never knew how to dance. Never did. I always wondered about the fact that I am Black and yet, when I got up to dance, it was assumed that I had found a dozen roaches and was attempting to stomp ’em. I think that that is the main reason why I refuse to jive down the goddamn street to the white man’s tune, I can’t fucking dance anyway. And even if I could, by now, with all the shit that’s been going down, bullshit jiving would be the last thing that I would be doing right about now. When will we ever learn? Put those goddamn protest signs down and ask yourself, how many years have we been doing the same damn thing over and over again and expecting different results? What is the definition of insanity? Yeah! You know! Doing the same goddamn thing over and over again and expecting a different result. You tell yourself, “It’s gonna be different THIS time,” but it never is. #BlackLivesMatter is gonna save the day. Don’t kid yourself. That group is as powerless as you are. The next time you see a raging inferno, take a cup of water to it and see what it does to that inferno.

The laws in this murderous hellhole called AmeriKKKa weren’t made to protect us. That is why we don’t stand a chance when we are confronted by the white man’s law. The law that they apply to us does not apply to them. They don’t do any wrong. Just ask that Uncle Tom sell-out in the White House and that piece of shit, Eric Holder that just showed us the back of his heels after leaving the ‘Justice Department’. Which Wall Street banker went to jail on corruption charges? Money laundering? Fraud? Nada! Non! None! Not one! And yet Eric Garner was attempting to add to his coffers by engaging in a bit of selling of loose, untaxed cigarettes and he is now in a coffin. You see, he wanted to be a businessman, but he couldn’t play by the white man’s rules because you have to be white in order to do that. To be a businessman, you’ve got to have the proper credentials; you’ve got to have the proper pedigree; you’ve got to be a white, lying, cheating, conniving, worm. And Eric Garner could never aspire to that.

Now, Black folks, try to go to the bank and take out a small business loan and see what you get. First, they’re going to do a criminal background check, and if you’ve been pulled over and weed was smelled inside your vehicle; well, there goes the loan. If you somehow pass the criminal background check, they’re going to check your credit score. Now, if you’ve missed one goddamn electric bill payment, no loan for you. But I’ll stop you from even wasting your time, YOU AIN”T GONNA GET A LOAN! Simple as that! Why? Because you ain’t white! Why do you think credit scores and background checks were put into play? Think! Who do they adversely affect? Look in the mirror. There you go! And that is why, there you go, right out the goddamn door of the bank, just as empty-handed as when you went in. And of course, you’re thinking that it’s all your fault. It’s not. But they do their damndest to try and make you believe that somehow, you’re not worth a penny. Don’t buy it! It’s not you that’s worth nothing. It’s them because you see, they’ve put a price on everything and according to them, your life ain’t worth spit, but the reality is, if you could pull the face off a white man, beneath it, you’d find death. That is why it is so easy for them to kill. It is because they are already dead inside. They have no heart. They have no soul and therefore, cannot have compassion or any other feelings for that matter. That is why they can pull you out of a vehicle for nothing and hang you. That is why they can shoot you in the back and plant evidence against you. That is why they can shoot a twelve-year old boy and not blink. That is why they can beat a Black woman to death. That is why they promote perversion, homosexuality, sex changes, war, human experimentation; because when they look in the mirror, they see what you don’t see. They see exactly what I’ve told you they see. They see death and that is what they promote; your death and everybody else’s because if you look around, who is doing the dying and who is doing the killing? And who started it ALL? You better wake the fuck up to what you are dealing with because death stalks this earth in the form of the white man, killing everything in his path!

Still not sold? Who built nuclear weapons and used them? Who killed the Indians for their land? Who went to Africa, stole her people and enslaved them? Who initiated a war in Iraq over a lie? Who is behind the poppy production in Afghanistan that has found its way onto every street in this shithole called AmeriKKKa? Who infested Black communities with crack? Who is sending Black bodies to the morgue by the thousands? Who is putting poisons in your food, your water and in your medicines? Who is jailing you for crimes you did not commit? Who is making up laws just to send you into For Profit prisons? Who is dismantling the public education system? Who put Jim Crow laws into effect? Who decided that two men and two women could get married? Who decided that sodomy was not a crime? Who legalized alcohol; a mind altering drug, but puts you in jail for possession of weed, a plant? Who is gentrifying your neighborhoods? Who is throwing you the fuck out by making it too expensive for you to live where you’ve always lived? Who is turning off your human right to water? Who is pretending to be benevolent by operating a charity and then stealing the donations? Who is screaming the loudest about taxes while paying none? Who is accepting bribes and kickbacks for working against your interest? Who denied you the right to vote? Who told you that you were three-fifths of a person? Who bought and sold you like cattle? Who lynched you? Who should you fear the most? The answer to every one of these questions, that’s who! And yet, you continue to march right up to the door of this shit and expect relief! Get real and prepare your ass for what’s to come!

A Former U.S. Soldier Tortured And Killed His Own Daughter!

tortured and murdered his own daughter

Yeah! Re-read the headline. That shit is not a ‘wounded warrior’, nor is IT a disabled vet, the shit that killed its own daughter doesn’t need a parade in its honor. It doesn’t need a day set aside in its honor. And this is what we honor! We honor torture. We honor shits that torture innocent people overseas and then come back with that same mindset and then proceed to torture their own children and families. This is what we produce as a nation; a band of torturing, killing shits and we welcome them back with open arms and the U.S. Government is complicit in this shit’s crimes and we as U.S. citizens are being made, yes MADE to pay for their crimes by our tax dollars.

The mother of this poor dead child will receive $2 million dollars in compensation from the U.S. government because the father of this child, tortured and killed his own daughter on a military base in Hawaii. You know about Hawaii of course. It’s where Obama claims he’s from. It’s where he loves to golf and rest up. But this child wasn’t playing golf with her ‘military hero worshipped father’, she was somewhere in Hawaii in military housing stripped naked, beaten and made to stand near her own feces. Oh wow! This certainly takes me back to the photos of abused and tortured prisoners in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. But get this! The military police were called to the home several times and noted…uh..read it for yourself!

“A judge’s 2010 ruling noted some of those missed opportunities, including one on June 29, 2005. “The military police responded to the Williams’ home, but despite finding Talia, ‘naked and mute, in a room standing near feces on the floor’ and thinking ‘something did not look right,’ no reports were ever made to CPS,” said the order by U.S. District Judge Alan Kay in allowing the lawsuit to move forward.”

“We hope that what may come out of this case are some fundamental, systemic changes,” Davis said. “There were so many opportunities that were missed to try to remove this child from this toxic environment.”

Missed opportunities? How in the hell is anything going to change when the fox is guarding the henhouse? The U.S. government doesn’t want their shit to hit the light of day because the military whores are fucked up and are ticking time bombs. The military police actually witnessed this child, ‘naked and mute, in a room standing near feces on the floor’, thought it didn’t look right, but did absolutely NOTHING about it???!!!!! Did not report it. Did not say a goddamn thing about it? Really? Oh of course they talked it over and said, “Gee goddamn whiz, this is going to make us look like the torturing shits we know we are. We’ve got to protect our own because if the public becomes aware that this is an epidemic, well there goes our ‘unblemished’ record as heroes, warriors and fine upstanding soldiers. Never mind. Nothing to see here folks. Let’s move it along.”

Indeed! Those bastards are all fucking heart and soul, doncha know!!!

The child’s mother said that “she[Talia] would be about 15 now,” Tarshia Williams said. “She would be in high school.”

People have the nerve to say that, “I’m not nice!” I’m not nice? Anybody that has ever read ANYTHING that I have ever written know for a fact that I could not see a child in the condition that this child, Talia was in, and do NOTHING! That’s what’s NOT nice! The fact that shits can see a child standing naked and mute beside feces and shrug and go away and ‘not report it’. But because I use cuss words, I’m perceived to be not nice. Because I don’t fancy shit up and tread lightly so as not to step on toes, I’m not nice. Well guess fucking what! I am a goddamn saint compared to what the shits did to this little girl and the other shits that knew what was being done to her and kept their goddamn whorish ass mouths closed. And to think that I am to thank this shit for their ‘service’? Seriously? I am to honor this? I am to salute this? I am to consider this shit to be, a hero? Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit!

I will continue to rage against the military whores that we fucking honor and salute and claim they are soldiers and warriors and other stupid shit of the like and I am not going to be nice about THAT! So, I guess I’m NOT nice after all, but then again, there’s not nice and then there is military whore type NOT nice!

So, don’t bring your ass up in here if you expect to see some goddamn ‘feel good’ poetry and some more shit! Go on down the goddamn hall and turn the fucking corner. Maybe, you’ll find what the fuck you’re looking for there! But goddamn it, in here, you are going to get the goddamn truth and you’re going to get it nicely done in a ‘not so nice’ way! Ain’t no goddamn bullshit going on all up in here! Never fucking think it!

This is for the military whores that ‘parade’ their wide open ass hole all up and down a pothole filled street in this shithole! Read it and recognize yourselves in this; you sick ass twisted, perverted, torturing, vile than a motherfucker whorish ass shits!

I Am On An Anti-Military Crusade!

 

I am on an anti-military crusade

For being a killer is why you get paid

Do us all a favor and just drop dead

Shoot yourself in your goddamn head

You are sick and you need to die

And I will be glad to tell you why

You’re already dead when you aim a drone

At someone who to you, is unknown

You are not human and you fucking know that

That is why you can kill at the drop of a hat

You say that it’s the only job that you can find

I’d rather get crushed underground in a mine

Unlike you, I am human and I give a damn

About all the children that you killed in *Nam.

I ache for the mothers that have lost a child

And for the people in Afghanistan that you defiled

You suit up and you go not into harm’s way

But to a foreign land and make people, your prey.

I am expected to sympathize when you get fucked up

Nothing fucking doing since you are morally bankrupt

Never for a minute think that I will take your side

You’re an ugly, twisted shit hopped up on false pride

I hope that your own mind becomes the enemy

And when you die, burn in hell for all eternity.

*Vietnam

and eat this for dessert!

I’m Worse Than A Parasite!

I stand ready to receive my orders.
To the war machine, I am sold.
Life don’t mean a thing to me,
not yours or mine, I’m told.

It is crystal clear to me,
that I am already dead.
Why else would I sell my soul,
to keep the war machine, well fed?

I have no conscience, not at all.
A trained thing is what I am.
You think I care who it is I kill?
Hell no! I don’t give a damn!

I signed up to commit murder,
and I am good at what I do.
I am sick and vile and twisted,
and then I come home to you.

Don’t you love and care for me,
when you hug me close at night?
I am your husband and I am your lover,
and yet, I’m worse than a parasite.

These arms that now hold you,
would tear you limb from limb,
if my orders were to do so,
I’d watch the light in your eyes grow dim.

Oh yes, I go to church and I pray,
though I know my soul is lost.
And when I kill another’s child,
I expect my own to pay the cost.

Do you ever stop to think about the fact that that ‘thing’ you love, and you just kissed passionately after you met at the airport, just got back from killing someone and for what? What did that unknown dead ‘enemy’ do to you or to that ‘thing’ you just kissed so passionately and can flip like a light switch and start killing an unknown ‘enemy’ that had never done a thing to you, it or your loved ones? When that ‘thing’ makes it back and you stand there with loving arms, awaiting that sweet, sweet kiss of death ’cause that’s what it is, a kiss of death, you have no qualms about that? Because your ‘loved’ one killed somebody else’s ‘loved’ one and what makes you more special than who IT killed?

Your ‘loved’ one would turn on you if ‘ordered’ to do so. Think about it! Do you think that IT would not gear up and put you down if ITS orders were that you was the enemy?

How can you lie in bed in the arms of something that is considered a ‘hero’ for murdering innocent people? How can you lie down and have a child with a cold blooded murderer? Because that is exactly what you are doing. How can you live off ‘blood’ money? Because your spouse, that thing, is paid to kill and there ain’t no way around it. You can dress IT up in ‘fatigues’ and put medals on ITS chest, make IT salute and when all is said and done, you’re honoring a killer.

So I guess some killing is fine as long as it’s sanctioned and paid for by the government, but if you walk up to your neighbor and shoot him dead, what’s going to happen to you? You’re going to prison, but that ‘thing’ that just got back from Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria just killed somebody and now you lie in bed next to IT and IT tells you, IT loves you. IT doesn’t. How could IT? IT’s a killer! And what’s more, it may only be a matter of time before IT kills you because IT is a ticking time bomb. IT didn’t punch a clock at the Post Office, finish ITS shift and go home. IT put ITS gun away until next time, until next time, until next time. Just hope that one of those ‘next times’ ain’t you. Think on it!

And now, another child is dead because her father turned himself into the so-called ‘elite’s’ torturing and killing machine and then that shit crawls between the sheets and when a child is born, that child is at the mercy of the merciless. For the love of …….!!!!!!!!!
