2020 Is Going To Be A ‘Make Or Break’ Year: That, I Can Sense

The title of this post is taken from a comment that was posted on a blog dated December 29, 2019.

I have been blogging since February of 2013 trying to wake Black people the hell up. It did NOT work. Here is the comment that I posted in response to someone’s comment to me on this blog.

“Yes it is sad and it is only going to get worse. The shit that I’ve seen in just the last 5 years alone should have long since curled my toes. The future for ADOS is extremely bleak, it really is. If we don’t come together as a whole, we are done for. 2020 is going to be a ‘make or break’ year; that, I can sense. The shit the whites are doing to us, they have been ramping it up for years while we sit somewhere in movie theaters watching stupid, make believe shit produced by those racists, while we are still on some fake nails, fake hair and fake chicken sandwich nonsense. What the hell is wrong with us? We have lost SO much ground in the last two decades, it ain’t even funny.

When Tom Joyner signed off on his radio show, he said that “Black America was more woke 50 years ago. Today we are not woke at all.” He could not be more right. More’s the damn pity!

All I can say is, “We’d ALL better wake the fuck up!” It may already be too late. We shall see.”

2020 is proving to be exactly what I knew that it was going to be; a make or break year for American descendants of slavery.

I tried in ways too numerous to count to get those in my group, ADOS, to come up out of their hypnotic trance and get with the program that the whites ain’t fucking playing with us. They have NEVER been playing with us and why we did not understand that the shit was going to get worse for us, I don’t know because the signs were everywhere. And many of us who were already woke to the shit were trying to get the rest to wake the hell up and realize and understand that the stupid shit that many of you were about, needed to be fucking dropped.

While the whites have had most of you hooked, not on phonics, but on Disney and Marvel Comics bullshit, the whites were planning multiple ways to assist in OUR demise, just as they’ve always done. Do you seriously think that it is by accident that most of us ADOS are always on the frontlines of every goddamn horrible shitty shit to come down the pike? Do you seriously think that whites have EVER had our best interest at heart? Have you ever wondered why our mortality rates are, in comparison to whites, out-of-the-ballpark? I could continue as in our poverty rates, unemployment rates, home ownership rates, high school drop out rates, low higher educational achievement rates and don’t even get me started on income disparities when it comes to what American descendants of slaves earn and what whites earn.

Take a look at what everyone is doing as it relates to immigration and put what they are doing up against what we are doing and we are losing, hands down. Every single group that the whites have allowed to immigrate to this shithole have stepped above us, even the Africans who were responsible for ALLOWING the whites to sail off with our ancestors. The Asians are multi-billionaires as are those Hindu motherfuckers from India that’s got cows walking the streets. Those Hindu motherfuckers think more highly of cows than our Black asses here in Amerikkka. The Pakistanis are NOT our friend, nor are the Iraqis, Iranians, the Mexicans, the Spanish, French, Italians, Russians; no other group on this planet is our friend and yet we act as though we have no problems at all.

Look around you Black folks! What the fuck do you see? Article after article after article of Black folks as “The Faces of Coronavirus,” that’s what the fuck you see. And why is that? It is because of racism; filthy, savage, brutal racism! Black people are NOT “The Faces of Coronavirus” due to any underlying fucking medical conditions and these debased white shits know that. The reasons why Black people are “The Faces of Coronavirus” deaths is due to our jobs in that we are frontline workers and also the fact of racism. Tell me this. If a Black woman and a white man both went to the hospital in the same condition, coronavirus infected, tell me, which one would get the last remaining ventilator? But what’s even worse is that when Black people have gone to the hospital with coronavirus symptoms, they have been told to go home and take a goddamn aspirin. Even when they went to the hospital multiple times, they were still told to get out of the hospital and guess what. They fucking died! And the cause of death? COVID-19. But the REAL and TRUE cause of death was RACISM and don’t you ALL fucking know this!

So, while Black folks were sitting somewhere paying the white man for the dubious pleasure of watching Marvel and Disney’s version of “The Black Panther,” your asses were being set up. While Black folks were sitting somewhere in Asian-owned nail salons getting their fucking nails done, your asses were being set up. While Black women were running inside Asian-owned beauty supply stores, your asses were being set up. While Black people were lined up and fighting over chicken sandwiches at Popeye’s, your asses were being set up. While Black people were online buying the latest brand name in sneakers and apparel owned by whites and pimped by Blacks like Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Cardi B, Kanye West, P. Diddy and all of the other Black sell-outs, your asses were being set up. While Black folks were busy perusing Amazon, making Jeff Bezos even more richer than he already is, your asses were being set up. But you know what? Your asses were warned and you paid no heed and now, you are paying for that shit, BIG TIME! You are being touted as “The Faces of Coronavirus.” And when you’re not being touted as “The Faces of Coronavirus,” you’re being touted as “The Faces of the Hungry.’ You’re being touted as the “Faces of the Unemployed.” You’re being touted as “The Faces of the Homeless.” In Georgia, in Louisiana, in Michigan, in Ohio, in New York, in Washington, DC, Maryland and elsewhere, Black people are the faces of ALL of that and then some and what is being done about it? NOTHING!

But don’t a goddamn one of you say that you weren’t warned because you were, you just paid no heed and now, you’re paying the piper. I am so very sorry to know that the Black folks who were woke, died decades ago because what we’ve got now are “The Walking Dead” because you always underestimate your enemy. You want to be entertained and dolled up with fake ass shit..and to do what???!!! Go to your death, that’s what. Yeah! I’m sure the dead ALL look nice in their coffin, still with some fake ass weave in and fake ass nails on and probably still smelling like kung pao chicken. And I bet, GOFUNDME funds had to pay for the fucking funeral.

As for the whites, don’t you pasty fucks even think about grinning and believing that you’ve done us in while saving your worthless hides because you’ll soon be jumping out of thirty story hotel windows and even those whores and whoremongers in Hollywood are going to be doing the same because who is going to get next to whom and kiss and slob down in those goddamn dumb ass movies? What cooking show is going to have some damn contestants running around dripping sweat and coronavirus into dishes that’s going to be served to some damn judges that used to own restaurants that have now been closed because millions are still going to refuse to step foot inside a restaurant and even those that remain open for curbside pickup are not going to see the traffic that dine in restaurants saw.

When the casinos reopen, how many are going to be allowed inside to sit next to one another hoping that a slot machine pays out? And when ALL the hair salons and nail salons and barbershops open back up, how many are going to contract coronavirus from those shops? Already some Black women are getting clued in and are buying fake nails and learning how to put them on and are claiming that they are no longer going to head inside a nail salon. Some Black women are claiming that they are going to do their cousin’s hair so that they don’t have to go back inside a hair salon. That’s what you should have been doing all along. But as usual, I digress.

Back to the whites. So whites, tell me, how long do you think that you can hold out when it comes to getting your shit fully back up and running? Oh, you’ve got the money now to wait this shit out, but that’s not going to last. Some of you have already had your shit buckle and we all know that MONEY and POWER is everything to you and without it, you are NOTHING! So, coronavirus won’t need to take your debased asses out, you’ll gladly do yourselves in because you cannot do poverty AT.ALL. When your businesses fail and even bailout money is of no help, what are you going to do then? We ALL know the answer to that!

Black people may have been caught up in the first wave of this virus, but know this whites, your ass is grass, as well. Coronavirus is coming for your ass in a different way; it’s going to hit you where it hurts; your pocket, your business. So you just keep thinking that Black people are going to continue to be “The Faces of Coronavirus,” but your turn is coming. Even in an upscale area of New Jersey, the whites were lined up at a food bank while still sitting in their fancy, expensive cars. What sense does that make? Ever the ones to try and hold on to your status symbols even as you sit in line and wait your turn to collect some free cabbage and potatoes from a food bank. The fallout from this virus has not even begun to impact your ass, but it will. So you sit somewhere and think that you are going to be okay because just when you think that all has returned to normal, you’ll soon be thinking differently. Mark my words.

And finally, Black folks, I’m done with your asses as well. I have been silent on here because I have ordered me a slew of books and I’m going to get to reading and so this blog will be closed. None of you would take heed of a goddamn thing that had nothing to do with fun and games and entertainment. Well, I don’t think that it is very entertaining to be without a job, food, a home and sitting somewhere sick. Has fake ass ‘Wakanda’s Black Panther’ come to the rescue? Is that dashiki and African head wrap you put on, helping you deal with the shit that’s going down now? Those fake nails have long since fallen off and the weave is now either dreaded or has long since been discarded as you try and head for a food bank, for those of you who can still maneuver and have not fallen ill. Again, you were warned and you paid no heed. I’m done because just like Tom Joyner said when he signed off on his radio show, “Black America was more woke 50 years ago. Today we are not woke at all.” Well now, you get to sleep the sleep of death.

Black Lives Don’t Even Matter To Blacks!

 

blacklivesmatter and bernie sanders

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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