a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.
What does emancipation mean?
the fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation.
“the early struggle for emancipation from slavery”
So when you look at why Juneteenth is celebrated and you look at what emancipation means, tell me, American Descendants of Slavery, how are you free, liberated, unshackled, unyoked, uncaged, unbridled and unfettered?
When the protesters were in Minneapolis going the fuck off, those who are descendants of the racist shits that enslaved our ancestors were busy spying on the mostly Black protesters via drones, spy planes and spy helicopters in order to arrest people who were supposedly, liberated. But we know that we are not liberated because the protesters were protesting because a Black man was detained and murdered for no reason. So, what were you celebrating on Juneteenth? That you enjoy enslavement? That you enjoy being spied on by the same government that dragged your ancestors here to become slaves for them? Did you celebrate Juneteenth because the whites are championing that day as though there is some meaning to it for us because if you are, then you are so stupid that you could actually be made to believe that shit don’t stink.
As long as the whites are telling you to ‘celebrate’ some bullshit, why…there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Black History Month…well, there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day…why there you go. Those days have no meaning for us. Those days are the whites’ way of saying, “Look, I’ve given you much to celebrate. Now go out and buy shit and shut the hell up because that is all that we owe you. Fuck reparations. You’ll get a few days in which to celebrate what you think are freedoms.” And you know what, most of us do just that. You accept so little and will rejoice over a turd handed to you, especially if you are being told that that turd has special significance to you.
Whites are flaming liars, thieves, criminals and murderers; that’s what they’ve always been and that’s what they always will be. You cannot expect whites to do shit that would make a gnat’s ass worth of real difference in your life. They will talk shit to you and hope that you continue to buy it and eat it and you do and so why would they feel pressured to actually do anything of substance; anything of meaning? They wouldn’t.
When you celebrated Juneteenth, did it put any money into your pocket? Did it give you health insurance? Did it cure your diabetes since you have diabetes because of poor diet because you work minimum wage jobs and cannot afford the proper foods with nutrients needed for a healthy body? Did it move you out of a crime infested neighborhood that is wracked with gang violence? Did it close down the liquor store in your neighborhood owned by a foreigner brought over here for the express purpose of further reducing your time spent on this planet above ground? Did celebrating Juneteenth get the bank to approve a home loan for you? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you approved for an apartment in a nice section of town? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you into college? What was the purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth? There was none and the whites know this. The purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth was all for the whites. It had absolutely nothing to do with you since the whites know that whatever bone they toss you, you will run with it, be thankful for it and don’t question why the whites are hyping up some piece of shit ‘day of emancipation’ that never took place, because make no mistake, we are still slaves. We are still slaves in every way.
Look around you. What group in this country is in the worst possible condition? The group that was hellbent on celebrating Juneteenth, that’s who. What the fuck do you have to celebrate? American descendants of slavery are the poster children for homelessness, income inequality, mass incarceration, abject hunger, childhood poverty, high school drop-out rates out of the ballpark, inadequate or no health care, high mortality rates for Black women, babies and children and for both Black men and women, high mortality rates from being murdered by cops. And statistically speaking, we are at the bottom, economically and so disadvantaged, it has been stated that Black household wealth stands at $7.00. We have no real and true wealth; no tangible and intangible assets.
But that was not always the case. Whites destroyed everything we ever built for ourselves, from our homes to our institutions to our movements and so why do you think that they have no problem with us ‘celebrating’ Juneteenth, Black History Month and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day? It is because that is ALL we are to have. And for most of you, that seems to be enough!
And yet, when the protests were raging, all we heard from the whites and from the Black misleaders was, “Look! They are burning down their own neighborhoods!” What fucking neighborhoods do we own? Black people don’t own shit! The lone Black barbershop on the corner is nothing to screech about because, HELL! In Baltimore, MD, Black people have taken to doing curbside barbering. Those goddamn foreigners that the whites have over here on expired visas own that shit that was burned to the ground. If you look at the news out of Minneapolis, there was some Somali man standing there talking about how he owned this and that and was going to help the burned out community. SERIOUSLY??!! How did his tree climbing ass, crawl down from a tree in Somalia, fly the fuck over here and own some damn businesses when Black people, who were born here and are descendants of slaves, have to operate a ‘curbside’ barbershop and yet the whites and the Black misleaders want to exclaim that we are burning down our own damn businesses? What businesses? Yeah! Go do your research and get back to me on that. American descendants of slavery are doing so poorly because it is by design. Whites know why! And they intend on keeping that status quo the same for why else is every other group that comes over here, given every advantage in the world to build up shit, while our shit gets torn down by the whites who spy on us, constantly? They spy on us to make sure that we don’t get any ideas that we are ever going to get ahead because they make damn sure that they nip that shit in the bud before it can even get off the goddamn ground.
But we can happily celebrate Juneteenth because it does NOTHING for us! It is not supposed to, but we are satisfied because Amerikkka, this fucking year, celebrated Juneteenth with us. Ain’t that some shit??!! Indeed, it was!
White folks want to always drone on and on about how they take the initiative in order to get things done. Oh you take the initiative alright when it comes to fucking up our lives while we have to take the initiative to fight against you for our right to even exist in this shithole called, Amerikkka. But it is mostly Black people who are having to fight for their right to exist while working at Amazon warehouses where they are expected to fulfill NON-ESSENTIAL orders with many of their co-workers falling ill with coronavirus.
Amazon workers at the distribution center in Romulus, Michigan, walked off their jobs Wednesday at noon in response to the company’s failure to protect the health of its employees amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Recently, two positive cases of coronavirus have been found at the DTW1 fulfillment center and a third was confirmed early Wednesday morning.
Mario Crippen, a leader of the walkout and a worker at the DTW1 fulfillment center, took to the microphone and said the company should not continue to sell non-essential items. However, many essential items are out of stock.
So let me get this straight, Amazon is not making those workers continue to put themselves and their families at risk by working to sell ‘essential’ items, they are keeping those workers on the warehouse floor to send lazy ass motherfuckers some stupid shit that could wait. More than likely those workers’ lives are on the line over sending out nail polish, games, toys and other shit of the like for the ‘shelter in place’ crowd to entertain themselves and their little hellions. I would walk the fuck out too!
How in the world can Amazon state that it is doing everything possible to make sure that its employees are protected and working in a safe environment when not one, not two, but three employees all working at the same facility have tested positive for COVID-19? Spouting useless rhetoric from a form letter does nothing when the health and safety of workers are meaningless to employers as is the case with Amazon.
And AGAIN, I reiterate as I’ve done multiple times, I have NEVER in my life ordered a goddamn thing from Amazon and I never will. I don’t give a damn if I have to go around butt ass naked, never will I encourage the flagrant abuse and contempt for those who must work in an Amazon warehouse by purchasing a goddamn thing from Amazon. But apparently, the rest of this world is filled with brain dead, lazy ass motherfuckers who could care less about anyone so long as their fucking games, toys, nail polish and other stupid shit is heading out of Amazon warehouses and if they contain coronavirus, shut the fuck up! You asked for this shit and now you’re going to get it because it is quite obvious that Amazon doesn’t give a fuck about its customers because those sick employees ‘laid hands’ on those products that are coming to your door via a delivery driver who has touched a package that also probably contains coronavirus and so the spread of this contagion continues.
When will you stupid dumb fucks ever wake up from your hypnotic stupor and get with the program that Amazon workers are not going to be the only ones impacted? When you order shit, that shit you order has the potential to be carrying an extremely lethal contagion and despite what those in the medical field are recommending, I have seen plenty of people touch shit and then touch their faces. Sometimes, it is just a reflex action since some people have been doing that for too damn long and can’t stop now.
But as usual, I digress, there is picture after picture of American descendants of slaves taking the initiative to try and take care of their health and those of their loved ones by refusing to put themselves and their families at risk despite the obvious financial consequences they face. While the whites are running for the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts, Black people are expected to still stand somewhere in a warehouse next to the coronavirus sick just so that they can send out your fucking games and toys for your brats, is that about right? I would ask how do you whites sleep at night, but I know how you can sleep at night. In order for something like this to keep you up, you must first have to have a conscience, a heart, empathy, compassion, a moral compass and humanity and those are ALL the things you whites lack, down to the last one of you. And so what can I expect but what I see from you since I know that you are the most cold sludged (you don’t have blood) parasites ever to slither and crawl across this planet and that is why I don’t have a problem calling you debased rejects from who the hell knows where whatever I damn well please since nothing I could say could hurt your feelings because you must first have feelings in order for them to be hurt and you have none!
Black folks otherwise known as American descendants of slaves, I beg of you to stand in solidarity with one another through these tough times. I know how tough it is. I know that things are bad for us. Hell! They’ve always been bad for us because just like I read earlier today, “when Amerikkka catches a cold, we catch pneumonia.” That shit is so goddamn true, it ain’t even funny. Please, I beseech you to hang in there. Hold tight to one another, help whenever you can and like everything else that’s been thrown at us, we have managed to get through it. We have always been the face of poverty, strife, suffering, homelessness, hunger, incarceration, drug addiction because the whites would have it no other way, but also remember that through it all, we are still here. Though many of us have fallen, many who paved the way for us to be here today, suffered hell on earth as well. We can but continue to struggle on in the face of hatred from an insane enemy the world will never have firsthand knowledge of as we do. This world’s people only get a taste of the sheer hell that these rabid beasts called, whites’ visit on us. We get the shit, up close and personal.
Finally, though we flounder and some of us will fall there will also be those of us who survive just like we always do and so stand proudly on that strike line. Refuse to be the face of coronavirus, if you can help it. Just like one of you said in the video, you are not the Red Cross, you are not a hero and so therefore, you are not obligated to stand somewhere on a warehouse floor and contract a killer virus just so that you can send some damn nail polish and toys to some parasite that wants you dead anyway. You are not expendable. You are not going to endanger your health and safety and that of your family members for multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos’ ass and those filthy ass whites and some dumb Black folks that helped him get to that status. He nor they are risking their lives on warehouse floors to get non-essential items out and neither should you. Tell them ALL to “Go straight to hell!” Those motherfuckers can just do without, we have to. And fuck all y’all motherfuckers out there that love all up and down on some damn Amazon and act like nothing existed before that goddamn bullshit. You’re all pathetic worms for jumping on the goddamn Amazon bandwagon. Too bad, logic and thought left the building and its place, we now have, apathy, complacency and laziness. More’s the goddamn pity.
This poem is for MY Black folks out there and you know who you are!
When You Get Tired….!
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. –
I wrote that poem, as you can see, in 2015 and today, the whole world is in the grips of a pandemic. Take this time to act because as confusion reigns and the government is trying to lock us all down, either our rights will never be regained from this,(the few we have) or we will forage a new path because a new path is what is needed. Look around you, the time is ripe. In multiple states, there are calls for rent strikes. In multiple states, there are calls for strikes, walk-outs, sit-outs and the momentum is building. People are sick of this shit! This is exactly what we needed to happen. Corporations get bailed out to the tune of billions while millions of mostly Black low wage workers are being handed a measly $1,200 if and when the IRS gets around to it. Also, those who are seniors/veterans/disabled are being told that they will have to file a tax return since many of them are so low income, there has been no need for them to ever file a tax return. The military is fucked up to the point whereas the pentagon is refusing to admit to how many soldiers are actually down with coronavirus. In some states, the doors of jails are opening to release prisoners due to the spread of coronavirus.
Soon kkkops will be falling down with coronavirus. First responders are coming down with this. Even in this dead ass burg, it was announced that a firefighter has coronavirus. Pretty soon, homes and businesses on fire will be burning the fuck up because there’ll be no one to put them out. So, in other words, strike while the iron is hot! The uber rich ain’t circling the damn oceans in their super yachts for nothing or they are sitting in so-called luxury underground bunkers trying to wait this shit out. One goddamn flaming hypocritical piece of filthy shit billionaire had the gonads to post a pic of himself sailing on his yacht talking about, “What a way to escape the coronavirus.” The outcry over that was so damn loud, the filthy fucker took the pic down. They are laughing at us over the fact that they can just escape in their yachts and bunkers and mansions in the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts and leave us all to continue plodding along enriching their pockets as we risk contracting this virus while their shit gets bailed out. Fuck that!
If we fail to take this golden opportunity, we will never forage a new path because believe me, if they ever get a handle on this coronavirus, the shit is still not going to return to ‘normal’ because since the government thinks it has effectively locked us all down, (for our own good according to them) do you seriously think that they won’t up the ante if and when this virus is under control? Exactly!
Angered and tired of being the mules for wealthy warmongers, indentured Whites and American Descendants of Slavery (Native Black Americans) ancestors rebelled against the one percent (Bacon’s Rebellion, 1676, Jamestown, Virginia). Since then, classism has been replaced by racism in an attempt to keep Native Black Americans from consolidating resources, materially or socially, for the benefit of their collective uplift and stability. […]
While the institution of slavery sought to annihilate the humanity of American Descendants of Slavery and failed, individualism is achieving what the institution could not – divisive forms of classism has taken root within the group, plus there’s a widening blind spot among Blacks who are generation X or younger. Wealth isn’t being transferred as one generation passes and the next steps into their shoes. Instead we’re seeing generations of poverty or at the most an individual makes it up a rung only to see their fortune stolen or lost by the time the next generation is ready to assume it or some time within the next generation’s lifetime – the fortune is no more, thus, Native Black Americans are the only ethnic group poised to live a worse quality of life than their parents. This is no coincidence. There’s a reason the NBA/ADOS community who have been tricked into thinking in terms of individualism only see their wealth circulate within their community once maybe twice while others see theirs circulate dozens and dozens of times. We’ve been hoodwinked.
True, true and true!
American descendants of slavery today ARE faring worse than those of our grandparent’s generation and those of today’s generation of poverty stricken American descendants of slavery are faring worse because they have lost their collective minds. They believe that Timberland boots, wigs, weaves, fake nails, Nike products; everything has to have a designer label on it is what they should strive for. Even the poorest of the poor Black folks are walking around with smartphones worth hundreds of dollars while many of us are renting when back in the days of our grandparents, they owned their homes, they also were business owners. Entire neighborhoods were filled with Black homeowners who worked in their own businesses and came home to their own neighborhoods. I know this because I lived in such. My hairstylist owned her own home and in back of her home, she had her shop. And every Friday night, every parent of every Black child in town was headed to the Black-owned restaurants to purchase the best and tastiest foods you could ever wish for.
When I became an adult, I danced in every club that was owned and operated by Black people. The whites hated that shit and would send the cops in there to look around and inspect the club owner’s certificates, but in the end, they had to take their damn asses on up out of there even as they had lined up U-haul trucks to haul us all to jail for a “just in case scenario.” Yes, we had to put up with that shit because the whites are ferocious in their hatred of us.
Today, where do we go to eat? Panda Express. Hong Kong Take-out Joints. Chinese All The Way Take-Outs. McDonald’s. Wendy’s. Burger King. Applebee’s. Ruby Tuesday’s. Ole Country Buffet, Panera Bread, Firehouse Subs, Subway, Outback Steakhouse, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns and the list of Asian or Caucasian owned restaurants that we eat at is endless. We don’t even bother trying to keep our money in our few remaining neighborhoods, nor do we try and strive to increase the number of Black neighborhoods. We simply let the Asians and Caucasians come in and run us out when at one point in time, those same neighborhoods had a majority of Black home and Black business ownership. We are steadily losing ground.
Notice how the whites burned down our cities, burned down our Black Wall Street, infiltrated and disrupted our organizations that were about building us up while at the same time, allowed those organizations that were not about shit to continue to operate to this day, namely the NAACP and the Urban League because we ALL know that if those organizations were about shit, they would have long since had their doors shuttered by the whites. But do you ever wonder why there are “Chinatowns‘ in damn near every major city? “Koreatown” is being raised in Los Angeles as I type this while American descendants of slavery are sitting up in Skid Row trying to eradicate typhus, hookworm and a myriad of other diseases and illnesses that the whites hope they drop dead over. This is exactly what The Native Black American was talking about when he said,
“We are dying because of a racist healthcare system, not because it’s inadequate, but because as individuals we can’t defend ourselves from racism. Name and consider the amount of Black celebrities who’ve complained that they’ve almost died giving birth? Don’t let liberals or conservatives fool you – everyone else is working as a collective and it’s time that we stop getting rolled.”
Exactly! I just posted a comment on one of my blogs only yesterday about a Black woman who had gone to the ER in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and died because she had waited for hours to be seen by a doctor while having chest pains and shortness of breath. This happens ALL too frequently and it is ALL done by design. Nothing whites do is by accident. So if you think that I am going to wail and moan, whine and gnash my teeth over Asians and Caucasians dying thanks in part to their own “parasite” disease, think again. It is no coincidence that Asians and Caucasians have been doing the dying from this coronavirus.
In their endeavors to kill us, they never thought for one minute that something was going to come down the pike and put paid to their racist, filthy existence. You can bet your candy ass that this virus would be having NO impact on world markets if it was only killing American descendants of slavery or FBAs,(Foreign Born Africans) but since this shit is impacting Asians and Caucasians, it is having a disastrous impact on ALL WORLD MARKETS. And with dumb ass Donald Trump and ‘death still walking’ Pence in charge, sit back with a big, huge glass of whatever you like to drink, Black folks, and watch the shit hit the fan for Asians and Caucasians. Both are now crying “Foul” because no one wants to travel by air, ship, rail or bus. No one is eating at Asian restaurants and no one is making reservations at hotels. In fact, Tom Cruise is whining that he cannot even film his latest “Mission Impossible” dumb ass movie over in Italy because they’ve shut that shit down over there. “The Amazing Race” had to quit production because of the coronavirus until further notice and has had to send ALL participants home to self-quarantine. Even the 2020 Olympic committee is sitting somewhere on their asses chewing on their nails and wondering if Japan will still be able to host the Summer Olympics, never mind that Japan should not have been hosting any Olympics what with radiation levels still off the charts over there. Who in their right mind would drag their healthy body over there just so that it could be radiated to pieces thanks to Fukushima?
Asians and Caucasians have lost a TON of money in just a few days time and the losses are going to continue. Yes indeed, CORONAVIRUS, level the playing field. The arrogance of the Asians and Caucasians is NO match for CORONAVIRUS. Already there is chaos in Alabama because some coronavirus patients were supposed to be dumped on their doorstep and they said, “Hell no!” One dude who is a doctor even got himself up in a hazmat suit and stood on side the road to protest bringing coronavirus quarantine patients to his neck of the woods. You ain’t seen nothing yet. The chaos, pandemonium and bedlam hasn’t even begun, but it will.
Dude is smiling now, but I don’t think the smiles are going to last very long. I have to continuously shake my head over the extreme arrogance and conceit displayed by whites. They will never get it until they GET IT!
Thank you Native Black American for yet another spot on post! I hope you have no problem with what I added, but knowing what these Asians and Caucasians have been doing to us for too damn long just got my goat up! Thanks again for a well thought out post! Keep them coming!
Rebuilding our family and extended family structures and working as a collective must be a priority on ADOS’ journey for restorative justice in the form of reparations for 400 years of sanctioned and legalized abuse. – Native Black American
Here we fucking go AGAIN! The whites don’t intend to do shit that matters when it comes to ‘honoring’ what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., died for. This shit that they are doing now is the absofuckinglute end of enough!
An Alabama county has passed a resolution to preserve a jail cell where civil rights icon the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is believed to have been held months before he was assassinated in 1968.
The cell, on the seventh floor of what is now the Jefferson County Courthouse in Birmingham, is the only one that was not removed when the building underwent renovations in 1996.
“In order for Jefferson County to truly move forward, we must first recognize our past mistakes, take corrective action, and move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life,” said Jefferson County Commission President Pro Tem Lashunda Scales in a press release.
Seriously????!!!!!! This is all the fuck they can think of to do to honor a man who was jailed because the whites refused to give him a permit to march, PEACEFULLY through the goddamn streets to protest Jim Crow, no rights for American descendants of slaves, slave patrols in government uniforms and some more shit of the like???!!! For the love of !!!!
You deranged, debased, rabid racist whites can take your goddamn jail cell and stick it up your wide open assholes because you ain’t about shit when this is ALL the fuck that you will do for a man who died because you racist motherfuckers ain’t even fucking human!
You will do everything, but the RIGHT thing when it comes to ‘honoring’ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ALL those who lost their freedom and their lives for protesting the foulness and viciousness of the fucking shit you perpetrated and still do on a group of people who are here through no fault of our own! We fucking did NOT row the fuck over here and ask to be set down right smack dab in Nazi headquarters. That shit ain’t on us. That shit’s on you! And so, as usual, you will do the most vile shit that you can think of to ‘honor’ a man who was too good for you worthless debased, doughy assed whites to lick the bottom of his shoes!
You will not see to it that the man’s legacy stands for shit. His legacy in YOUR filthy, yellow eyes is a GODDAMN JAIL CELL???!!!! You think that you’re doing something by keeping a jail cell ‘hot’ for Dr. Martin Luther King JR.????!!!! What??!! You expect him to come back from the dead and walk back into that fucking cell??!!! You deranged fucks are the ABSOLUTE END OF ENOUGH!!! To have the balls of bulls and the arrogance to match is just too fucking much for me!!! I thought that I could not despise you sons-of-bitches more than I already do, but I find that I most assuredly damn well can despise, hate, loathe and detest you demonic monstrosities even more!
The people who look like Dr. King and who are alive today are over represented in cells that look just like the one you’re claiming to ‘honor’ Dr. King with, you vile rejects from who the hell knows where. There are over two million who look just like Dr. King sitting all up in cells that look just like the one you’re holding on standby for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., you nasty, no account, debased white parasites!
“In order for Jefferson County to truly move forward, we must first recognize our past mistakes, take corrective action, and move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life,”
Recognize past mistakes? You didn’t make no goddamn mistakes! Your fucking white asses were hell bent on subjecting Black bodies to the atrocities that you visited on them and you still are. So if you’ve fucking recognized PAST MISTAKES, then why the hell are you still making them? Because like I’ve already stated, there are millions of Black bodies inside cells that look exactly like that one and why the fuck are they in there if you are all about recognizing past mistakes? You fucking useless, racist ass pieces of shit! Shut the fuck up! You ain’t about shit! Why the fuck you don’t burst into flames when even thinking about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day, I don’t fucking know because you debased hypocrites should be doing that fucking shit!
“In order for Jefferson County to truly move forward, we must first recognize our past mistakes, take corrective action, and move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life,”
Take corrective action???!!! What fucking corrective action did you take because it would seem that I have to keep repeating myself since you clueless, dumb shits ain’t getting it? What corrective action did you take? Was it to put more who look like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in an exact replica of the jail cell that Dr. King sat in? Because that’s what you damn well did, you fucking racist, pasty-assed creatures! That’s what you consider to be corrective action???!!!! Take that and also shove it up your wide open doughy assholes!
“In order for Jefferson County to truly move forward, we must first recognize our past mistakes, take corrective action, and move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life,”
Move forward with a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life? What the hell does that mean to you? Oh, I see! It means to embrace American descendants of slaves from all walks of life and incarcerate them because that is exactly what is still happening. From the abject poor Black folks to the filthy rich Black folks, we are ALL sitting up in jail cells that are exact replicas of the one Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was forced to cool his heels in for merely being unable to obtain a permit from the whites to peacefully protest racism, Jim Crow, prejudice, extreme hatred, the inability to vote and some more shit of the like because you debased pasty-assed monstrosities claim to just now get a sincere desire to embrace people from all walks of life to honor Dr. King by keeping a jail cell handy for some other poor Black schmuck to ogle who will eventually end up in one. Are you fucking serious??!!!!! Get the fuck outta here with your tired ass bullshit, WHITES!!!!
You ain’t about honoring shit because that’s what you’re doing; heaping a pile of your shit on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and pronouncing it to be your “YOUR RECOGNITION OF PAST MISTAKES, YOUR CORRECTIVE ACTION, YOUR MOVE FORWARD, YOUR SINCERE DESIRE TO EMBRACE PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF [BLACK]LIFE!” Fucking seriously???!!!! Get the fuck outta here!!!
American descendants of slaves are fucked up to this very day, fifty-two years after the assassination of Dr. King and all your whites ass can come up with to ‘celebrate’ and ‘honor’ Dr. King’s memory is to preserve a goddamn jail cell that you filthy, racist, doughy-assed motherfuckers made him sit up in because he couldn’t obtain a permit from your pasty ass to peacefully march through the streets to protest the rabid racism that you still visit on those who look like him!
How the hell are you going to honor Dr. King when the vast majority of what he was fighting against is still in existence today and you white shits have ramped that shit up. You are busy gentrifying Black neighborhoods. You saturated Black neighborhoods with crack. You locked up the Black crackheads while white heroin addicts are sent to rehab. You sent jobs overseas that used to provide decent wages for Black people. You introduced guns and more drugs into Black communities which then produced inner city gang violence and rampant prostitution and murders. You fucking let loose on Black communities, liquor stores and bad food markets otherwise known as ‘convenience’ stores that sold garbage as food to poor Black people while looking the other way when it came to zoning laws for liquor stores. You allowed the Pakistanis, Hindu cow worshipers from India and the Koreans to come over here and make a killing off killing Black people in their own neighborhoods because you damn sure as hell did NOT allow those motherfuckers to set up shop in YOUR white bread neighborhoods.
Protesters in St. Louis gathered to shut down a convenience store and block the exits after a video emerged of the store’s owner and another employee attacking a woman, prompting people who viewed the assault on social media to actually do something about it.
Around 10 a.m. this morning, Shemika Russell recorded an employee of Gas Mart confronting a woman outside the store. As the woman and the man from the store argued, another man, alleged to be the owner of the gas station, came outside and kicked the woman to the ground.
After the first kicker goes back into the store, the other man, apparently jealous of his boss’ racist kung-fu, decides to join in on the treat-a-black-woman-worse-than-Putin-treats-Trump festivities and kicked the woman again.
“One of the workers, an Arab gentleman, kicked her in the stomach like she was a dog,” said Jermaine, one of the protesters and residents of the community. “So we’re here to shut it down. No more business for these people. They’re going to understand that we feed them. That they live off our community.”
That shit is what I mean by whitey parasite ass deliberately allows that shit to come over here and help his white, filthy ass to fuck us up! That goddamn Arab kicked a Black woman in her stomach like she was dirt! If his ass had kicked a damn dog, he would still be in jail because whites think more of their dogs than they do of ANY American descendant of slaves and you can take that shit to the bank! So fuck those Arabs from the Middle East, those Hindu cow worshiping motherfuckers from India and those goddamn Pakistanis! If the whites want to fuck their ass up, it ain’t no skin off my Black ass! And it shouldn’t be any off yours! I don’t give a damn how many times they drone strike your damn asses! You filthy fuckers ain’t no friends of ours!
All over this blog, I have displayed countless ways that the whites are fucking us over and are using others to come over here and fuck us over and fuck us up and we as American descendants of slaves need to understand that we have NO friends! Their whitey doughy pasty asses are a given, but you damn well had better believe that NO other group is in our corner. Don’t get the shit twisted!
And so fuck you filthy white motherfuckers and fuck your Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebrations! They don’t mean jack shit coming from the likes of you debased, depraved, pasty, doughy-assed lunatics! Die and rot in hell motherfuckers and take your fucking Arabs, Asians, Hindu cow worshipers from India, Hispanics/Latinos and Pakistanis the fuck with you!! To hell with ALL you motherfuckers!!!!
As I raise my flute in drunken glee, I look upon what was once a live tree. So concerned with this planet and global warming, my resolution to do better can wait til morning.
For tonight, I celebrate with friends and acquaintances, spreading well wishes and exchanging whispered confidences. The wrongs of this world, for just one night can wait a little longer for us to do what’s right.
A sick child with no health care will have to hold on until I open my bleary eyes to greet the new dawn. The Black man being dragged by the Ku Klux Klan should have seen them coming, he should have ran.
Of course I care about the people who have addictions just like I care about my neighbor who can’t afford her prescriptions. I know about the homeless who have formed a tent city. But for just this night, champagne will take away my pity. And as the seconds tick away towards the New Year, even champagne cannot stop me from shedding another tear.
I wrote this one because as we celebrate the ringing out of the old and in with the new, I cannot help but believe that more misery, cruelty, suffering, chaos, war and all things of horror, will follow us into this new year and beyond, for what will have changed?
As we head to our parties tonight, break out our party favors and drink our champagne toasts at midnight, wish each other a “Happy New Year,” are we really going to think that this year will be any happier than 2019 or 2018 or 2017? What is going to change to get us to actually mean it when we say, “Happy New Year?” It will be just another year of the same because we won’t change. We will continue in our old ways of ignoring those who are less fortunate. We will pretend as though there are not wars being fought just because. We will never for a minute think that we have aided and abetted in the destruction of this planet through our selfish acts as we scream, “Happy New Year To One And All!” If we really meant that, we’d know it because it would show, but when you look around, does it show? Does it look as though we give a damn about the children who go to bed, hungry? Does it look like we give a damn about the homeless? Does it look like we care about those who are in unimaginable pain because they have no health insurance? Does it look like we are going to start doing something to hold our elected representatives accountable for the way they continuously make the working poor pay for the idleness of the rich? Does it look like the ‘new year’ will bring about a change in the human psyche which seems hell bent on self-destruction? If any of you ponder these questions, I already know what the outcome will be. Exactlyhow you were in 2017, 2018, 2019 is how you will be in 2020 and on and on it will go until they plant you. Because we are always going to wait til tomorrow to ‘do’ better. Just like each and every year, we are bombarded with ads to lose weight and get in shape and some people actually make a resolution to do just that and then after a month, what happens? Back to square one. We’re pathetic!
And so, I will not say, “Happy New Year!” I will merely say, “Welcome to the rest of your lives!” War, misery, homelessness, joblessness, starvation, income inequality, racism, ignorance, selfishness, arrogance, greed, lust, apathy and complacency and your solutions to getting through all of this; heroin, crack, alcohol, weed, mass murder and suicide.
Developed in 1963, the official poverty rate is based on pre-tax income thresholds related to the cost of a minimum food diet and the number of individuals who depend on that income.
That is unbelievable! The ‘official poverty’ rate based on pre-tax? What the hell??!!! After deductions is what tells the true story, not some before taxes bullshit. None of my paychecks have ever looked good before or after taxes and other deductions and what was there to show for those taxes? Wars! Wars and more wars!
Senior U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the 18-year campaign, making rosy pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence the war had become unwinnable.
The United States invasion of Afghanistan occurred after the September 11 attacks in late 2001, supported by close US allies. The conflict is also known as the US war in Afghanistan. Its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda, and to deny it a safe base of operations in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power.
Again, America cannot win a war! It does not matter how much military equipment is sent to a warzone, the fact should be clear to ALL by now, that America’s military ain’t shit! And if you don’t believe that, then keep reading.
Since 2001, more than 775,000 U.S. troops have deployed to Afghanistan, many repeatedly. Of those, 2,300 died there and 20,589 were wounded in action, according to Defense Department figures.
“If the American people knew of the magnitude of this dysfunction…2,400 lives lost.” And for what???!!!
The sad part is that Americans are so far removed from wars that we just don’t care. We don’t care that supposedly, healthy specimens of individuals were suited up and sent overseas to fight who or whom and how and why? No one had a clue. And it was most definitely in vain that over 2,400 lost their lives and my guess would be that the numbers are even higher since it is quite obvious that we cannot believe one lying word out of the mouths of our politicians aka warmongers and war hawks and those would include BARACK OBAMA, GEORGE W. BUSH, GEORGE H.W. BUSH and the current reigning lunatic-in-chief, DONALD TRUMP.
Thousands upon thousands of Americans who suited up and who were sent to war zones, made it back and are now wounded and are trying to receive the dubious services of the Veterans Administration and we all know that ANY services received from the Veterans Administration is a joke; just a not so very funny joke since it has been reported that those wounded soldiers who made it back from overseas deployment and who had damn near lost their minds and were suicidal were put on hold by the Veterans Administration when they called seeking help.
Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.
In February, an Inspector General investigation revealed that some of the in-coming calls early last year had rolled over to back-up centers and gone to voicemail.
And surprise! Surprise! The original article was taken down and cannot be found online. Go figure! Can’t have the dirty secrets bandied about that America couldn’t give two flying turds about those whom we absentmindedly “Thank for their service.” What the hell does that do for someone who supposedly “put their life on the line” for this worthless ass shithole? Can it feed them? Can it house them? Can it give them the medical/psychological care they need? Can it pay their fucking bills?
But to know that it was ALL for nothing is what the troops who were sent over to Afghanistan are saying. There was no plan. There was no blueprint. There was no exit strategy. We were fed bald-faced lies by ALL presidents that had anything to do with the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and so that also means that whatever we have been told about Libya, Syria, Yemen are also lies, lies, lies and damn lies! Trump even supposedly dropped the MOAB(Mother of all bombs) in Afghanistan and what the fuck did that do? Not a goddamn thing but kill two Afghan camel herders and take money from social programs that are sorely needed seeing as how we are experiencing poverty that’s worse than what was experienced during the first Great Depression because make no mistake, we are in a Worse Depression what with the emergence of Third World diseases in this so-called ‘First World’ nation whereas abject poverty and opulence sit side by side, where tent cities are right in the midst of new construction for luxury high rise condos in Los Angeles, but over in Las Vegas, the homeless are living in tunnels. Coming into Chicago, all you see are tents lined up; endless rows of tents. The same in Baltimore and in any and every city in Amerikkka.
George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump — and their military commanders have been unable to deliver on their promises to prevail in Afghanistan. U.S. officials acknowledged that their warfighting strategies were fatally flawed and that Washington wasted enormous sums of money trying to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation.
What? Wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” So that they could what? Open a Starbucks? Open a Walmart? Open a Popeye’s Chicken shack? Open a Target? Are they fucking serious? This shithole is collapsing what with an infrastructure that is so damn old that bridges are collapsing, pipes that run water to homes are in pieces. Sinkholes are swallowing up blocks of cars. Entire cities look like war zones. Just go to damn near every state and you’ll find rows of abandoned, falling down buildings, downtown areas that have been abandoned; just row upon row of dilapidated buildings and those assholes wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” The Amerikkkan people are stupid as hell. There you sit with your dumb, fat ass glued to a chair while staring down at a phone that is your whole life while your paycheck is being deducted for shit because “attempting to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation” is not why we are paying taxes. That is not why we have payroll deductions. And yet, all we hear from so-called politicians is that we have no fucking money to help our own citizens who are sitting all up in tents trying to cure their typhus and hookworm. Seriously??!!! What.the.fuck.
Yeah! What did we get for over $1 trillion? And we cannot even believe the bullshit that the U.S. government put out about Osama bin Laden since I read that the man had long since died from kidney failure long before Seal Team 6 arrived on the scene. If Osama bin Laden was deep sixed, then I’ve got a bridge for sale in London.
Keep believing the bullshit! Keep buying the lies and you will continue to look around for somewhere to put up a tent and then find yourself locked up thanks to vagrancy laws being put on the books in every city in this fucking shithole because they got nothing but wars and wars and they don’t even have a clue why the fuck there is a war and what to do in a war or how to exit a war of choice. If veterans cannot even get housed and are dying on the streets, what the hell do you think is going to happen to the rest of us? But go right ahead with your head glued to that phone. I hope your tent comes with a USB port and some electricity. Otherwise, the jail has electricity, but you won’t get to keep your phone while you’re cooling your heels in there after having been swept up in a homeless tent city raid.
Meanwhile, your government has some more lies to tell you about why we are at war in Afghanistan and why U.S. troops are still over in Iraq. By all means, keep believing the shit they spout because you love being lied to.
And so I will leave you with a little poem I wrote for the wannabe soldiers.
War Is Always Such A Blessing!
War is always such a blessing It never is distressing or depressing. I know all too well that this is true. War has been good for me and you.
You proudly give your lives up for the rich. For us, life never is a bitch. In a blaze of glory, you go out. And really, that’s what it’s all about.
The drone operators are so brave as they send little children to their grave. Since the world has become our battleground, the drums of war make a lovely, throbbing sound.
Teach your sons and your daughters about their duty. And one day, when they are dead, we’ll make a movie. It will honor their brave and noble deeds. The wounded, we shall see to all their needs.
Through war, we bring peace unto this earth. And though you break out in dubious peals of mirth, the last laugh will always be on you, for none of what is written is ever true.
When we put a lethal weapon in your hand, and send you to die in a foreign land, your life means nothing, you should know, but you never give pause, you just go.
War is not only just a blessing, to warmongers, it is also quite refreshing, that you are so willingly prostituted, and it’s all because you are just too stupid, to understand that if it were not for you, no drone could ever strike on cue!
Answer the question racist whites. Why is Koreatown still standing? You didn’t have a problem burning down everything Black people built for themselves, so why stop there? Is Korean barbecue and black bean noodle that goddamn good?
In Los Angeles, the tents are spread out on sidewalks across the city, the homeless emboldened by a court ruling that allows them to live outside if no shelter space is available. Making matters worse, many live in filthy, third-world conditions without basic necessities like toilets and sinks. It makes them and those who venture near susceptible to disease.
A few homeless and low-income senior citizens will be luckier than most next year.
They will receive keys to one of 72 new apartments,complete with a fitness center, in the heart of trendy Koreatown, built at a projected cost of $690,692 for each unit, according to the city controller’s office. Two additional projects in the pre-approval phase are expected to top $700,000 per unit in total costs.
Awwww…isn’t that nice? A few homeless people and seniors are going to find themselves the lucky winners of pricey housing right smack dab in Koreatown, which isn’t over in North or South Korea, but is smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles because the whites just love them some Korean barbecue. It must be that the whites got tired of eating the food cooked by Africa’s stolen people; you know, the slaves. So now that the slaves’ offspring are behind bars, invite the Koreans to come over here and open their barbecue joints where they must sell a heck of an extreme amount of butchered pigs because by golly they got the pricey digs coming up to show for those restaurants they’ve managed to open all across this shithole.
Meanwhile, the rest of the homeless on Skidrow get to sit back in their tents and figure out how to cure their typhus and hookworm because the whites have that Korean barbecue to look forward to in Koreatown.
And yet when Black people were trying to be self-sufficient; self-reliable, for their efforts, racists put a stop to that.
he Rosewood Massacre was an attack on the predominantly African-American town of Rosewood, Florida, in 1923 by large groups of whites. The town was entirely destroyed by the end of the violence, and the residents were driven out permanently.
By the 1920s, Rosewood’s population of about 200 was entirely made up of black citizens, except for one white family that ran the general store there.
It was in 1982 when Gary Moore, a journalist for the St. Petersburg Times, resurrected the history of Rosewood through a series of articles that gained national attention.
The living survivors of the massacre, at that point all in their 80s and 90s, came forward, led by Rosewood descendant Arnett Doctor, and demanded restitution from Florida.
The action lead to the passing of a bill awarding them $2 million and created an educational fund for descendants. The bill also called for an investigation into the matter to clarify the events, which Moore took part in.
The Black people who were left alive after the Rosewood Massacre, received $2 million dollars for the horror they were made to suffer at the hands of rabid, racist whites, who many were members of the Ku Klux Klan. Four apartments that are going to be built in Koreatown costs more than the two million those innocent Black people received. How fucking fair and just is that shit? But yet Koreans can come over here and open up businesses, amass a fortune and get to live in pricey digs in their own goddamn town, Koreatown, when American descendants of slaves were trying to do the very same goddamn thing and many were killed for their efforts and the others had to flee their own town thanks to racist ass whites!
And not to be outdone, these racist ass whites even went further and burned down The Black Wall Street.
Black Wall Street was in Greenwood, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa, was the type of community that African Americans are still, today, attempting to reclaim and rebuild. Black Wall Street was modern, majestic, sophisticated and unapologetically Black. Tragically, it was also the site of one of the bloodiest and most horrendous race riots (and acts of terrorism) that the United States has ever experienced.
Today marks ninety-two years since as many as 300 African Americans lost their lives and more than 9,000 were left homeless when the small town was attacked, looted and literally burned to the ground beginning in 1921. It’s impossible, however, to realize what was lost in Greenwood, which was affectionately known as “Black Wall Street.”
Three hundred American descendants of slaves were viciously murdered and more than nine thousand were left homeless thanks to the rabid racism of whites who are hell bent on the annihilation of American descendants of slaves. Every group whether they are Korean, Chinese or from India or Pakistan or Timbukfuckingtu can come over here and climb over us and that is fine. They can have their communities, their businesses and their towns, but a people who are descended from those who were stolen and dragged over here? Not so goddamn fast! The whites are going to burn our shit to the ground and us with it. They want to make sure that we never thrive. The whites want us homeless, sick, hungry, incarcerated or dead! And that is exactly what is happening. This is why the fuck whites ain’t somewhere burning down Koreatown or Pakistanville or Hinduvillage, Hmongburg, China City or Russia Hamlet. Because make no mistake, though the Democrats scream and rail against the Russians, Russians are all over this hole like flies on shit. Take your ass to Minnesota, the Russian mafia is there, and in spades. The Democrats don’t hate Russians. Go see how the Russians over here live and then come tell me about how the Democrats hate the Russians. You don’t see no Russians in homeless encampments. And tell me, how many Asians do you see in homeless encampments, Hindu cow worshipers? Exactly! There are only millions of homeless American descendants of slaves and poor whites who have been deemed, poor white trash who are sitting all up in homeless encampments. And you seriously believe that this shit is by accident? Fucking get your head from out your ass because you want to be clueless about what the fuck is going down and why! The racists in this shithole know exactly what they are about and the foolishness down at the southern border is just that; foolishness because no one with two brain cells connecting and working should believe for one goddamn second that Donald “hired illegals to work for him” Trump is somewhere trying to rid this country of an illegal workforce. The fucking Hindu cow worshipers are over here on expired H1B visas and the whites ain’t giving a shit about that. The same with the Pakistanis and other ‘immigrants’. Even the goddamn Russians aren’t even looked at cross-eyed and yet what is the focus on? Some supposed ‘Russian meddling in the last election’? If you buy that load of horse shit, you’ve most definitely had a lobotomy. Take your dumb ass all across this worthless racist shithole and see that every community of ‘immigrants’ is thriving while those of us whose ancestors were dragged over here are living foul as hell! This is ALL done by design. Nothing racist whites do is by accident; nothing!
Our ancestors are screaming from the grave over what continues to go down. How the hell can they rest in peace when we can’t even see that we need to get up off the bling shit, the fake hair, fake nails, fake Asian food, fake ass killer liquor and some more shit that the whites have sent into our neighborhoods by way of the Asians, Hindus, Pakistanis and Russians to continue to fuck us up! Those worthless shits are helping whitey pasty ass to fuck us up and we are buying that shit up in droves and what the fuck do we have to show for it? Some wigs, weaves, fake nails, empty Asian take-out containers and empty Russian vodka bottles. How is that helping us become self-sufficient? It’s not and we can’t see that because when we are not busy handing our money over to these ‘immigrants’ who are welcomed over here by racist whites, we are heading inside movie theaters to be entertained by the whites and buying up the products made by white-owned companies. Nestle and Hershey ain’t our friends. Orville Redenbacher popcorn ain’t some shit we should be chowing down on. Pepsi and Coke ain’t some shit we should be drinking. That shit’s killing us as is the fucked up food in Kroger, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Costco and Safeway. Even the Africans over here have opened up their own halal meat markets. You don’t even see those motherfuckers up in those fucked up stores and yet, there we are buying hepatitis A from Kroger and Costco. We are buying salmonella and e coli from those places as well. And don’t even get me started on fast food joints. Seriously? Do I even need to go there? What is Chipotle known for other than burritos? E coli, that’s what! I can’t make you wake the fuck up. The only thing I can do is put it out there and hope that some of you at least, will pick it up! Other than that, I despair OF us! I’m fucking done!
It has taken Donald Trump to shine a light on Baltimore, MD that should have long since been in the spotlight over corrupt Black misleadership. While Elijah Cummings has been going after the Trump Administration for everything from collusion with the Russians to corruption and tax evasion, Cummings coonhead ass has been looking the other way over the shenanigans that he and others in the political arena in Baltimore have been engaging in. Cummings has learned how to play the game well; distract, distract again and deflect. And right out-of-the-gate, here comes Al SharpCON and crew shooting “You’re racist!” arrows at Donald Trump for stating the obvious about Baltimore’s Black misleaders. I would wager that every single Black politician in Baltimore is corrupt. Every agency headed by a Black person in Baltimore is filled with corruption from the state’s attorney’s office headed by Marilyn Mosby to the mayor’s office headed by Mayor, Jack Young and we ALL know that the mayor’s office and city council is ‘corruption headquarters’.
Again, Trump is absolutely right; billions of federal dollars have been poured into Baltimore and yet, Baltimore schools are rat infested, lack heat and air conditioning, lack textbooks and computers and so where did the money go? Into the pockets of the Black misleaders in Baltimore, that’s where. And now those same jackals are loudly exclaiming that Trump is just picking on Baltimore because he is feeding the frenzy of his rabid racist supporter base. They are already in a frenzy and so he has no need to feed a frenzy that has taken them over since our ancestors were dragged to this shithole. Those like Cummings and SharpCON and Black misleaders in Baltimore are trying to distract and deflect from the truth of Trump’s accusations. They don’t want to own up to the fact that they have willfully looked the other way over Baltimore’s out-of-control homicide rates, other violent crimes rates, appalling drug addiction rates, abject poverty rates, deplorable unemployment rates and a homeless epidemic that is on par with Los Angeles. Not to mention, nothing has been said by Elijah Cummings or by Al SharpCON about the fact that the NAACP is headquartered on Mt. Hope Drive in Baltimore, MD doing not a goddamn thing to mitigate the serious issues that have plagued Baltimore for decades. The NAACP has done absolutely NOTHING. Because hosting awards shows for the Blacks to showcase their cooning for the whites is not helping Baltimore in any way, shape or form, nor is handing Lifetime Achievement Awards to racist NBA owners as it did with Donald Sterling for being a stomp down, flaming racist.
President Donald Trump resumed his criticism of a prominent black congressman from Baltimore, saying Tuesday that people there are living in “hell” and that it’s a “corrupt city.”
Trump said billions of dollars have been stolen and called on the lawmaker, Democratic Representative Elijah Cummings, to investigate the city. Cummings is chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, which has been focused on investigating Trump and his administration.
“It’s a corrupt city, there’s no question about it,” Trump said of Baltimore. He said Cummings has an “iron hand” on city.
On Monday, Trump said on Twitter: “Baltimore, under the leadership of Elijah Cummings, has the worst Crime Statistics in the Nation. 25 years of all talk, no action!”
What Trump said is SO true, it ain’t even funny. People in Baltimore are “living in hell!” And what has Al SharpCON’s sell-out ass done for Baltimore? Not a goddamn thing, but he sure knows how to turn a situation to his advantage. Pretend to decry Donald Trump’s racism over calling out the shit that goes down in Baltimore every day and get some ‘air time’ while trying to look like some sort of defender to Baltimore’s residents against racist Donald Trump. Al SharpCON sold out Black people, decades ago when he agreed to work for the FBI in its efforts to infiltrate the Civil Rights Movement in order to get dirt on the leaders of the Movement, namely Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Al SharpCON is no friend to Black people in Baltimore, Detroit, Los Angeles or any place else. His prime directive is to look out for his ass and only his ass and you have only to look around at what he has accomplished; being a snitch for the FBI and a coon for MSNBC.
And Elijah Cummings has not a goddamn thing to say for himself since what has he done FOR Baltimore? Not a damn thing. He used Baltimore to get where he is today and never once did he attempt to help even one Baltimorean out of poverty, drug addiction, homelessness, prostitution or gangs. He has done not a goddamn thing to reduce crime, homicides, child hunger and poverty, failing schools, a fucked up infrastructure that is failing daily what with streets blowing up or dissolving in sink holes. The light rail is out of commission more times than it isn’t. The metro transit system is a failed experiment. The subway stations are overrun with rats and yet Cummings is attempting to take Trump to task over his alleged crimes? Seriously??!! You fix up your own home before you attempt to get others to fix up theirs and Baltimore is the home that Cummings should to get to work on. But Baltimore has served its purpose and Cummings has no further use for Baltimore because it has already been the means to an end which is his exalted position as the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Cummings loves to exclaim over how many years he has been in politics and that would be fine except for the fact that he has nothing to show for those years in Baltimore City.
Cummings has no moral leg to stand on when he gets to sermonizing over Trump speaking the truth about Baltimore. Those people in Baltimore ARE living in hell. They have been living in hell the entire twenty-three years that Cummings has represented them in the 7th district. There have been no improvements to the lives of Cummings constituents and so he most definitely needs to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because I’m with Trump on this one. How about we take a deeper look into what irons Cummings has in the fire? How about we shine a light on the shit that Cummings has been doing because there is certainly no reflection on what he has been doing for the good of those whom he represents in the 7th district and so who has benefited from his representation? Ask the people of Baltimore. Oh that’s right, they did!
“I just want to ask Elijah Cummings one question: What in your twenty years in office have you done for this city? This city is decaying and crumbling,” Robert said.
And Devon Temorgan, a 26-year-old Baltimore resident, noted that on Monday he was on his way to a funeral for a friend who was shot because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time in Northwest Baltimore. He said the city’s youth lacks guidance and have grown “uncontrollable.”
“A lot of people don’t have their fathers because they’re dead or in jail,” Temorgan told Newsweek. “It’s a dangerous place. It’s a beautiful place, but at the same time it’s dangerous.”
Cummings, answer the man’s question. “What in your twenty years in office have you done for this city?” “A city that is decaying and crumbling?” I’ll tellya, not a goddamn thing and yet other Black misleaders are crawling out of the woodwork, coming to Cummings defense even when they know the score. Black-assed motherfuckers who have so-called ‘made it’ are not our friends. They don’t ‘represent’ us. They turn their backs on us the minute they are thrown the scraps from the white man’s table and they got there by cooning for the white man. Black folks, know who your friends are and just because he/she is sporting a ‘Black’ face, does not mean that he/she is your friend. Our own ‘kind’ will throw us under the bus for the white man’s table scraps and Al SharpCON is exactly what he looks like; a relaxed haired, bloated head coon that got his fill of the white man’s table scraps for selling us out; in other words, snitching on us for the white man. And if he is taking up for Elijah Cummings, then Cummings is exactly what SharpCON is; a sell-out coon. The true Black warriors are either still in prison, in exile or dead and so you know that Al SharpCON and Elijah Cummings are on some bullshit time because no assassin’s bullet has found their tired old ass, nor are they cooling their heels inside a For Profit Prison, nor are they in exile in Cuba. If they were about something, they’d not be free to walk the streets pretending to give a shit about Black people and that’s for damn sure!
I want Cummings and SharpCON to ask these people what they are doing for them because photo ops just don’t cut it!
What are you doing for them Cummings?
What are you doing for them Cummings?
What are you doing for them Cummings?
Why is Baltimore looking like this Cummings? Because it shouldn’t since like Trump said, Baltimore has received billions in federal aid? What happened to the money Cummings?
Where did the billions go, Cummings? Here?
And Cummings, while you’re explaining what you’ve been doing FOR Baltimore for over 20 years, explain why there is the need for this methadone distribution truck to sit right inside YOUR district?
Yes indeed, I can speak on what is going down in Baltimore because I have lived there and Elijah Cummings name has never been on anyone’s lips at any time that I have lived in Baltimore. He has done NOTHING and I do mean ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY NOTHING for Baltimore. And so this is yet another time that I must agree with Donald Trump. Those people in Baltimore are living in hell, a hell created by useless Black politicians like Elijah Cummings and exploited for gain by con artists like Al SharpCON. Baltimore deserves better, but unfortunately, she won’t get it. Not with the likes of those jackals descending on Baltimore for political points in what is a game to them, but what to Baltimoreans is a life and death struggle in hell!
A tale of two Amerikkkas is about an Amerikkka where one group is just too ‘white privileged’ to want to live while the other Amerikkka is just too destitute, poverty-stricken and saturated with guns and drugs to be able to live. First, we shall start with the ‘white privileged’ group.
The home video will look so familiar to so many parents: a sweet little girl singing and dancing her way to her teen years, recognized for achievements outside the home and thoroughly cherished inside it.
But the full story of Alexandra Valoras’ life is more terrifying than familiar. Just weeks after a family ski vacation, the 17-year-old high school junior, straight-A student, class officer and robotics whiz made her bed, tidied her room and walked to a highway overpass in Grafton, Massachusetts. She jumped off the edge.
Yes, it was just too much! The pressure of living up to all that she felt was expected of her was just too much for Alexandra Valoras to deal with. She would have been considered a failure if she had ever gone to her parents and told them what she instead, wrote in a journal in that she was just too tired of being their ‘perfect little angel’. “Daddy took me to a concert and I hated it while I had to pretend to love it,” she wrote in her journal. “Just got back from skiing and I hated it.” “Just received another medal for doing something else outstanding.” “Just named ‘honor student of the year’.” “But I am a failure!” “I am lazy!” These are the feelings that poor privileged Alexandra Valoras wrote in her journal that she could not say to her parents and would they have even listened or paid any attention to her words? The words in her journal do not sound as though she felt, “cherished.” But now that she is dead, her parents have finally found her journal, which was in the home the entire time. However, her parents had to find the journal near her body as she lay dead underneath a highway overpass. And Alexandra’s parents are still wondering to this very day, why they had no clue as to what their daughter was going through. So, what? They never heard that it is well within your rights as a parent to know what your child is up to? You are obligated to know what your child is up to. In this day and age of internet bullying, cyber stalking and Craigslist meetups and murders, you’d better sift through your child’s emails, social media accounts and yes, journals and diaries. The day your children have privacy is the day they leave the nest.
Whites are so oblivious to everything around them, including their own family members, that they don’t even know their own children. They are more clued in to other groups whom they hate for whatever reason, than they are to their own family who, like Alexandra Valoras, wrote her true feelings down and her journal, chronicling her feelings was in her room, waiting to be found, but since her parents simply could not be bothered, she is now dead and they are sitting somewhere wondering, “WHY?” You have only yourselves to blame since you think that giving your children ALL that money and credit cards can buy is what they need and because of this, you will continue to read diaries and journals that showcase your shockingly appalling lack of awareness of what is going on in your own homes. While you think your children’s smiles speak volumes on their mental well-being, you will continue to find your children lying underneath an overpass or hanging from the rafters while you are busy on the phone with your ski instructor making plans for your next ski vacation.
Now the Valoras claim they are on a mission to stop this from happening to other ‘white’ parents who just give their children everything that money and credit cards can buy, but little else. Your country clubs and golf courses and spa retreats come first. When do you have the time to even wonder what your children are doing when you’re meeting Rachel for lunch and then you have a hair appointment and then you’ve got to meet your tennis instructor and then you’ve got to go to the gym and then you’ve got to meet with Sarah for cocktails and dinner at an expensive restaurant and by the time you make it back home, your children should be in bed. And you get up the next day and do the same exact shit with different people and yet it is all so pointless because your children are very much aware that you prefer to spend time with anyone else, anywhere else so long as it is not with them, that is until they have managed to get your attention by achieving an honor and then that is when you take them to a concert, to celebrate that achievement. But then it is back to your selfish, self-serving lifestyle that revolves around you while you are sitting back thinking that your children should feel “cherished” simply because ‘why shouldn’t they’ since they have everything money can buy? Oh, you think your kids are okay because they have every device to play with and their rooms are filled to bursting, but what money cannot buy is what your children are missing, namely their parents undivided attention and love, not just parents who only reward them when they are honored for some achievement. They may as well be a trained seal, performing for you for treats.
Since this is September, which has been designated as National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, I guess this story is to showcase the fact that suicide is now the second leading cause of death for ‘white’ 15 to 24 year olds of both sexes and that ‘white’ teen suicide is now at a 40-year high for young women Alexandra’s age. There is also a list of warning signs you are to look out for.
A person thinking about or threatening suicide or seeking a way to kill themself
Increased substance abuse Feelings of purposelessness, anxiety, being trapped, or hopeless
Social isolation and withdrawing from people and activities
Expressing unusual anger, recklessness, or mood changes
But I don’t believe that this was the case with Alexandra Valoras since she did not display her feelings of purposelessness and hopelessness. She wrote them down. She wanted her parents to find her journal, but instead, she had to leave it where she committed suicide because she knew they’d not be able to overlook it then.
So, white folks! Instead of turning your anger and hatred towards others, maybe you should figure out what is going on in your own households and focus your attention there. It would seem to be the logical thing to do or you will continue to find your children at the bottom of an overpass after having jumped and the journal chronicling their journey to that overpass, lying somewhere nearby.
Next we come to the ‘other Amerikkka where suicide would be understood as a way out, however, homicides are the way out for far too many. But who cares about these statistics?
Baltimore had the worst homicide rate among the nation’s 50 largest cities last year and the second-highest violent crime rate overall, according to new data from the FBI.
The grim news was the latest reminder of the sustained cycle of violence that has gripped the city since 2015, when the annual number of homicides soared above 300 for three consecutive years after the unrest that followed Freddie Gray’s death from injuries suffered in police custody.
Baltimore Maryland is a city I know too much about after having lived there for several years in the mid 90s and again recently. I posted a blog a few years back detailing the outrageous horrifying statistics of a city mired in poverty, drug addiction, prostitution, gang violence, drug turf wars and hundreds of homicides a year. I even pointed out the fact that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is headquartered on Mt. Hope Drive in Baltimore, MD and yet, there is nothing that that organization has done to rein in the horrific statistics of a majority Black city. Far too many of Baltimore’s children are the victims of poverty and drug addicted single moms who don’t even know who their father is and if they do, he is more than likely in prison or has been murdered. These children are dropping out of school in record numbers and are being groomed for the ‘school-to-prison pipeline’.
In a post titled, “Sirens Are Our Lullabies,” I penned a poem about how Baltimore’s citizens, especially her children, are not gently falling asleep to the tune of softly whispered lullabies from their parent’s lips, but by the screams of sirens nearby that could only mean one thing, another homicide.
‘Did you hear that?’: Amid Baltimore’s surge in killings, a faint cry in a locked car
BALTIMORE — No one saw the baby.
She sat in a gold-hued car with tinted black windows as her 26-year-old father lay on the ground outside, dying.
All eyes were on him, another fallen body in a city increasingly defined by them.
In portions of Baltimore, the strobe lights of police cars is as much a part of the landscape as boarded-up homes. But the pace of the killings this year has been stunning as the city struggles to recover from rioting in 2015. As of Friday, 124 people had been slain, including five on a recent day, making Baltimore’s homicide rate one of the highest in the country. It is more than triple Washington’s rate and higher than the homicide rates in New Orleans and Chicago, two places that have become national symbols of gun violence.
A crying baby, sitting in her car seat, oblivious to the fact that her father lay dying mere feet away, unaware of the poverty and unbelievable hardships that she is going to have to face, if she does not get shot dead during some drive-by shooting first. Unlike Alexandra Valoras, who killed herself even as she had everything money and credit cards could buy and two parents in the household who took her on ski vacations and to concerts that she really didn’t want to go to, this little Black baby girl, sitting in her daddy’s car, will never know her father, much less will she have the opportunity to go on a ski vacation or even to a concert. It is highly likely that she will never know the area beyond the derelict neighborhood she and her mother will ‘live’ in. It is also highly likely that she will be raised by her grandmother, if she is still alive, because many young adults in Baltimore are strung out on drugs, either illegal or government sanctioned and grandmothers are left to raise their grandchildren, when they can. Otherwise, they end up in foster care.
Heroin and crack have decimated many cities that house a majority of Black residents and elected officials just shake their heads and bemoan the paucity of good paying jobs that could take the place of drug dealing, thus cutting down on the poverty and homicide rates. They look to the police to incarcerate the problem away. They look to ex-cons to patrol neighborhoods in order to instill a “You don’t want to end up like me,” message into the residents mired in hopelessness, poverty, violence and despair. But is any of this working? Hell no!
Whites, who are probably like Alexandra Valoras parents watch the evening news and exclaim over the violence of “those” people and say to themselves, “At least OUR children don’t have to rub shoulders with those people,” not even realizing that they have more in common with “those” people than they think. The same hopelessness and despair that drove Alexandra Valoras to commit suicide exists in the children of those who live in cities like Baltimore, MD. The only difference is they know that they will more than likely be murdered by simply walking to the store than be a victim of suicide. Commit suicide? What for? It is only a matter of time before they too, will become, a homicide statistic.
So, I say to Alexandra Valoras’ parents, while you are out parading around town, spreading the news that other parents in your shoes should take more interest in what their children are doing, take a moment and stop and consider that what happened to your daughter is in some way, karma, thanks in part to your lack of empathy, compassion and sympathy for those who are born into poverty, hopelessness and despair; the outcasts, those who have been abandoned deliberately by whites who are responsible for why a little Black girl in Baltimore City is in a car seat, mere feet away from her dying father who you think died at the hands of another Black man, but in reality, he is dead because guns and drugs were put into the hands of his killer by those who look like you since Black people do not own the planes and ships to deposit drugs on America’s shores nor do Black people manufacture guns or are members of the NRA that tout lax gun laws to politicians, daily. Those who look like you do. But there you sit in your insulated world thinking that all is right within it, that is until you find your daughter, lying dead underneath an overpass with the pain of having lived with you scribbled in a journal near her dead body. If she finds life intolerable living with you, how do you think it is for us? Something I would think on if I were you because what comes around, as you can plainly see, goes around.
Chris Watts is an alleged multiple murderer and the implication seems to be that because three years ago, he and his wife filed for bankruptcy thanks to owing over $70,000 in mostly credit card debt, this man snapped and killed his family.
Three years before Weld County investigators believe Chris Watts killed his wife and their two children, the Watts family filed for bankruptcy with less than $10 left in their savings accounts, according to federal court documents reviewed by 9Wants to Know.
Chris and Shanann Watts jointly sought Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in June 2015 after amassing more than $70,000 of debt for unpaid credit cards, medical bills and student loans.
In a June 5, 2015 filing with the United States Bankruptcy Court in Denver, Shanann and Chris Watts reported their two savings accounts contained just $3.51 and $6.00, respectively. At the same time, their checking account contained a little more than $860.
Most of their debt stemmed from credit card purchases from such retailers as Furniture Row, Sears, Macy’s, American Furniture and Toys R Us.
The couple met via Facebook and were together for about 10 years. They had two daughters and Shanann was several weeks pregnant at the time of her murder. Now, I do understand that it seems to be quite well known that ‘white’ folks just cannot handle being broke, but with that having been stated, is that an excuse to go on a killing spree and not stop until every single member of the family lies dead? Are there no other options short of murder?
One thing that seems to be crystal clear about ‘whites’ is that they just cannot come to terms with being ‘poor’. That is just not something that ‘whites’ handle very well at all, especially if they have become accustomed to a certain way of life; the McMansion, the two or three car garage with a couple of SUVs at the ready and a Better Homes and Garden style patio complete with an in ground pool, the whole nine yards. And when something happens that could cause all of that to be taken away from them, well now, what to do, what to do? Because folks who live like that are not about to apply for public housing and food stamps and Medicaid. What would the relatives, co-workers and friends think? Their things are a status symbol and without them, they are nothing, or so they believe.
This bears repeating.
“Most of their debt stemmed from credit card purchases from such retailers as Furniture Row, Sears, Macy’s, American Furniture and Toys R Us.“
Credit cards; the American way. If you don’t have cash, swipe that card, take your package and go and the more you charge the better which leads me to this. I took a look at Furniture Row and here is what was written about that company.
“Shop entertainment, tables, sofas, leather sofas & chairs. Style your home with designer-inspired living room pieces.”
No bargain basement discounts going on there. No blue light special will you find, just top of the line leather sofas & chairs, designer-inspired. Shopping at this store can have you spending beyond your means real quick which obviously helped the Watts reach a debt load of over $70,000. Now we all know that Macy’s isn’t so cheap and Sears was probably used to purchase home appliances and then there was American Furniture, “Looking for stylish, high-quality furniture at amazing prices? Turn to the American Home Furniture.” And of course, the kids needed plenty of toys and so Toys R Us to the rescue. Debt, debt and more debt, but a beautiful home is the result as well as a need to find a way to pay down that debt while still paying for the day-to-day living expenses for a wife and two children. Gotta maintain that lifestyle, no matter the cost.
Now, I am not suggesting or implying that poverty caused this man to kill his family. I am only stating that Americans are encouraged to place themselves in debt hell and to continue to spend money they don’t have and don’t worry about a thing until the credit card bills arrive. Pay the minimum and continue shopping. But when they look up, the bills are piling up, the credit card bills are numerous, the lights must remain on, the mortgage must be paid, the car notes are due, insurance for house and vehicles is due. The kids need new clothes. Food prices are skyrocketing and the cost of gas is rising. All of a sudden, the sky is falling.
When did people lose sight of the premise, “Live within your means?” Poverty is damn near every Black person’s middle name. We live and breathe poverty and most of us would not even think of blowing away family members because we have to keep up with the ‘Joneses’. The fact that many ‘white’ people have never known what abject poverty is like could almost be considered, a character flaw because believe me, having experienced poverty leads to character development. When you are at rock bottom with an empty fridge and a thin jacket to wear during a cold winter, it builds character. When you have to eat one meal a day because that is all you can afford, it builds character. When you have to walk miles to work because you cannot afford bus fare, it builds character. When you have to pay someone a few dollars to help you drag a kitchen table from a thrift store to your apartment, it builds character. And believe me, I have experienced all of this. What character, I must have.
To know poverty is to know how to live through it, survive and become all the more stronger because of having lived through it. If you are never to know struggle, poverty, hunger and humility, you will never learn how to get through the tough times because believe me, no one stays on top forever. What goes up, must come down.
And finally, this man was weak. This man had no strong character. This man was selfish. He could not look his wife in the eyes and tell her that they simply had to live within their means and that it did not matter what anyone thought of how they lived, it was their life to live and they had to live it as they saw fit. He could not do that and so he took another option; murder! Chris Watts allegedly murdered his two young daughters and his pregnant wife, now how selfish and depraved is that? It takes someone so weak and lacking in character and humility to commit such a horrible crime. Unfortunately, it will not end with this family because there are many more Chris Watts out there; weak, devoid of character, selfish and who will opt for murder as a way out.
