Immigrants Did Not Build It Bernie — The Native Black American

Immigrants didn’t build America, Native Black Americans did. Our ancestors were literally the money that made America wealthy. Bernie Sanders is extremely condescending toward so called African Americans

More from the article.

With over 6K likes and 1K retweets, Sanders is in a lot of bad company. In his tweet today, January 27, 2020, he engaged in the exact disinformation language that has derailed the presidential campaigns of Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. Mr. Sanders tweets, “This country was built by immigrants. The American people want comprehensive, humane immigration reform. We must reverse these Trump programs which are designed to demonize and hurt those who are the most vulnerable of all.”

Native Black Americans were literally the money, the collateral, who laid down their lives and sacrificed the most during the building of America. This particular ethnic group bore the cross for greedy warmongers, oil and rail barons, the extremely wealthy, and peasants from around the world to come here and thrive. The first commodity on the stock exchange were humans, African Americans. I’m beyond how dare he. The entire Democratic presidential lineup has disrespected this ethnic group with the exception of Marianne Williamson, who the Democrats went out of their way to shoo away and ignore.

Now, I’d like to include an excerpt from Bernie Sander’s own site. Bernie Sandersdotcom

Day One

Bernie will overturn all of President Trump’s actions to demonize and harm immigrants on the first day of his presidency. There is a humanitarian crisis at the border — one that Trump has manufactured. Bernie will end the barbaric practice of ripping children from their parents and locking children in cages, thoroughly audit and close detention centers, and work to undo the damage President Trump has done to our immigrant community and our national character.

Shouldn’t that read,

Day One

Initiate reparations for ALL American descendants of slaves who are here through no fault of their own and who have been demonized and harmed by every single president since the founding of this lousy country. Bernie will end the barbaric practice of continuing to enslave the descendants of slaves; ripping children from their parents and locking the parents in cages and placing their children in foster homes. He will open ALL prisons and free the enslaved American descendants of slaves from enforced servitude. He will work to undo the damage that has been wrought against this wronged group of innocent people, but even that will still not elevate this nation’s character especially since this nation has always been about enslavement, theft, genocide, torture, assimilation, war, racism, bigotry, prejudice, hatred and nothing can truly be done that could come close to elevating our national character.

There! I fixed it for him.

Bernie Sanders can lead in the Iowa polls all he wants, that is not going to get him inside the Oval Office. He has already stated that he is against reparations for American descendants of slaves since his claim on his own website is that his father came over here with nothing, but that with hard work, made it here in America. Of course he did because he was white and a system was already in place that made sure that his white ass would make it while anyone who is an American descendant of slaves started out in this country at a distinct disadvantage and that continues to this very day. Because of the system of white supremacy that propped up Bernie Sander’s daddy, that same system of white supremacy must function by keeping a certain segment of the population, namely American descendants of slaves from making any gains, hence why we are still doing so poorly today. The hard work of our ancestors and by us means nothing. Ill gotten gains obtained off the backs of our ancestors are dismissed as though slavery never happened. Whites would like us to think so, hence why they have been steadily re-writing history books taking out the word, “slaves” when referencing our ancestors and instead, referring to our ancestors as “immigrants.” That sounds much better; has a much nicer ring to it. But trying to rewrite history will NOT change the facts. You can try and pretty up the dirty deeds perpetrated against our ancestors by yours and by you against us, but it won’t wash. You are what you are. Accept it because you own it. You whites are filth and you know it.

Make no mistake. We were set up from the getgo when Abraham Lincoln so called, “freed the slaves.” What favors did he do them when there were no provisions in place for them to even make a living since, ignorant as they were, considered only to be three-fifths of a person and with no backing of the federal government to help them, they were destined to fail? Is it any wonder that many ended up still slaving away for their so called ‘former masters’? Is it any wonder that many were rounded up and herded into prisons or were lynched? And even the ones who made it up north fared no better.

And yet Bernie Sanders goes on and on about how immigrants need this and immigrants need that since “immigrants built this country,” and that is a bald faced lie! But nothing is said about what American descendants of slaves need as if he has no clue as to our plight. We are the group that has the highest homelessness statistics, the highest incarceration rate, the highest statistics of who is jobless, our poverty rate, food insecurity, school drop-out rates, illiteracy, drug use, murdered by racist cops stats are out-of-the-ballpark. We are forced into selling drugs and engaging in prostitution because we are the first fired and the last to be hired.

Jobs that once paid us a decent wage were sent overseas. Drugs and guns were introduced into our communities with the express purpose of sending us inside a prison hell or inside a coffin. We have no individual wealth. We are at the bottom of every statistical data chart that speaks of personal wealth and home equity. Our neighborhoods are being gentrified to push us into homelessness and death. Black females are dying in childbirth in record numbers in one of the richest and most industrialized nations on the planet. How is this so? Our infant mortality rate is skyrocketing. Why? But the focus of the Democratic presidential hopefuls is not on the plight of innocent descendants of slaves, but is on the so called plight of immigrants; people who WILLINGLY came to America, whether legally or illegally and who are given every opportunity that we are not afforded simply because they are not ADOS. This is ALL done by design. We see this. We know that we are the most hated group here but that is not on us; why we are here. That is on those who look like Bernie Sanders.

You will not get our vote while continuing to ignore our plight; a plight that we have thanks to your hatred of us, racism, bigotry and prejudice. We will not be the token Blacks for the Democrats to attempt to skate to victory in the next election. I will see Donald Trump’s ass still in the White House after the smoke clears from this next election, FIRST! Never think for a minute that we have not caught on to your games, Democrats! Because we have. We will not be taken for granted by you snakes, yet again! You can blame your next loss on the Russians. Hell! You can blame your next loss on aliens; illegal or otherwise, but you will lose because we are abandoning you what with your quest to make sure that immigrants aren’t mistreated as you ignore what you continue to subject us to. We are no longer going to tolerate your lies, your callous and utter disregard for us as humans since we are only seen as a means to the presidency and control in the House and Senate to you and after that, we are ignored or fucked up by you. I don’t know about the older generation of Black people and what they intend to do, but as for the rest of us, we are not voting for ANY of you snakes that make up the Democratic presidential hopefuls.

And once again, for the dumb as all hell morons, immigrants did NOT build America. Our ancestors built this country and don’t you damn well forget it! We want reparations and we want them now! We will accept nothing less and if you continue to put immigrants before us, count us the hell out because we will NOT be voting against our own interests. Get those illegals to vote for your ass, Democrats. And watch Trump make sure that every ballot is checked, rechecked and then checked again since you are going on and on about immigrants; many of them illegal. There is not a damn thing illegal about American descendants of slaves and yet the way we are treated, one would think that we had thrown ourselves into a ship and rowed the hell over here begging whites to take us in. Nothing of that sort happened. I don’t give a damn about how many immigrants purportedly came over here with two nickels in their pockets to speak for them. Their plight is still not ours. We are from a group of people, who themselves were owned, and so how the hell could we own a damn thing when we were set up by you loathsome worms to fail at every turn? And yet, we still managed to build our own Wall Street. We had our own homes and neighborhoods and tried to mind our own business but you whites couldn’t have that. Where then would your ‘white supremacy’ be if American descendants of slaves were seen to prosper in spite of you? You have seen to it that everyone who crawls and slithers to these shores are placed above us and do better than we do and you fault us for our status in this country when our status is what it is thanks to your insane and rabid hatred of us because we are the “in your face” proof that you are nothing more than white rotten filth! For how can you lay any claim to being humanitarian and benevolent, empathetic and loving when our very presence makes a lie; a mockery out of that claim by you? But that is NOT on us, that is on YOU!

We are damned tired of being your scapegoats! That shit ends now! We are woke and we intend to stay woke! So get that through your damn heads! We will NOT be used by the likes of you for your personal gain anymore and then get tossed out like yesterday’s garbage when our usefulness is at an end. To hell with you Democrats!

Lastly, I encourage ALL who read this to head over to the original article because the author is so on point, it ain’t even funny!

Behold, The Face Of Evil!

obama1

They picked him very carefully as all the world can see.
He’s easy on the eye and with a great personality.

Those who went before him set the stage for what would come.
He’s like a phantom in the night; we ask, “Where is he really from?”

Oh how little did we know, he’d bring destruction in his wake.
No Robin Hood he is, from the rich he does not take.

He’s a banker’s friend; a corporate tool who’s sent us spiraling down.
He hails from a gangster’s paradise in a city called, “chi-town.”

He’s led us straight to hell and he’s smiled the journey long.
We crashed upon the rocks as though he’d sung the siren’s song.

What’s left is barren land and the poor are all but dead.
Those who could not lose, put a bullet through their head.

The serfs are drudging painfully as they keep the rich afloat.
They’re scared to make a sound; they dare not rock the boat.

Their fate would be just like the rest; that’s not to be endured.
The Black man lent his face and the white man was assured,
that all would be as he declared; no detail left to chance.
The white man pulls the strings of the Black man in the manse.

The white puppet masters are pulling the strings behind the charming, smiling, engaging, false, fake-ass face of Barack Obama, a puppet bought with blood money. He is a willing tool for those who consider themselves to be the elite. They are nothing more than worthless scum, depraved, lying, greedy, deceitful crooks with no compassion or morality. They are why we are constantly at war. They are why people are working for poverty wages. They are why we have homeless, hungry and uninsured people in this world. The hopeless, sunken eyed, gaunt people of the world watch and they wait……and they die because billions of people, as far as the elite fucks are concerned, are expendable and don’t deserve to live. If you are reading this, then you are just as expendable to those nasty bastards as I am and they will soon make a believer out of you! Don’t think so? Wait for it and I feel that you will not have long to wait!

The World Belongs To Us!

JFK1

I know that you hate me when I take what you think belongs to you.
All my life, I have lived among the privileged few.
Never has anyone worked as hard at nothing as I do.
I look out from my penthouse window at the view.

I sit in a luxurious boardroom and look at the faces,
that stare back at me wishing they could change places.
I’m always a step ahead of all the rest and off to the races.
They would stab me in the back, but to my face, they heap praises.

You think it’s easy to be cold-hearted and to stand alone.
But what you don’t know is that I expect that I shall atone,
for the rotten things that I have done and for mercy, I have never shown.
I am at the top and there I will remain, no one can unseat me from my throne.

The whispers at night when those I pay for pleasure are gone,
keep me up, tossing and turning and wide-eyed when I greet the dawn.
You think that I don’t know what is in store for me, but I’m just a pawn.
Right now, it is me that you hate, but there will be another when I pass on.

Yes, we rule the world and we are the masters who dangle puppets on a string.
It is us that will depose a dictator and move people on a board to crown a king.
When torture is used, it is by our servants that the whip and the lash will sting.
And in secret, presidents, prime ministers and queens bow before us and kiss our ring.

I am one of them and I was born into the circle from which there is no escape.
From this world, we must take its riches and plunder, pillage and rape.
And under cover of darkness, what we worship enfolds us like a cape.
Don’t for a minute think that we ever really die, we just change shape.

The world belongs to us and all there in as we have declared ourselves to be gods.
And those who do not bow before us and worship us will face the death squads.
You cannot defeat us for our power is immeasurable and so what are your odds?
It amuses us no end that you are too blind to see what lies behind these mere facades.

I Am Clothed By Melanin!

imagesLAW7ZO68

You tell me to strip and to hide my shame,
I try not to notice that you are standing there.
You point out my distinguishing marks.
I cannot look at you and so at the wall, I stare.

You make a note of the tattoo on my right shoulder.
And now, I am to squat, spread my cheeks and cough.
Stripped bare of my clothing and of my dignity.
the last vestiges of my humanity has been castoff.

I stand naked and bewildered in the new slave market,
and I wait for the punishment that I know is in store.
For Massa is an evil and twisted bastard without a heart.
To him, I have always been an animal and I can’t even the score.

Herded to the showers, how can I ever become clean again?
No hope of a reprieve for I am handed over to my enemy.
Where is my salvation and where is the white man’s god?
But I am no longer a man, a number is now my identity.

When will the laws of the white man be applied to him?
I look out and see a sea of faces with complexions like mine.
How is it that all of us are bad and hid away from society?
Why hate me because I am not like you, pink like swine?

Stare at my nakedness and still I am clothed by melanin.
Try and shame me if you will but your nakedness is a blight
Your paleness defies the same sun that blessed me with beauty.
I stand before you in all my naked glory even in the harshest light.

You cannot destroy me though you try and whip me into subjugation.
I am a trial to you because I will not bend and break from torture.
As cruel as you are, I am the one who must pay in isolation.
But you will not strip my people of our true and beautiful culture.

Live my people and flourish though I remain behind these bars.
Do not mingle with that which must destroy your freedom.
For only by destroying you will Massa feel he has power.
Never give in for one day, you shall rule your kingdom.

A Government Of War And Terror!

crimes-450x478

The next time you find yourself on a goddamn airplane and you’re looking askance at someone who appears to look like he or she is from the Middle East, you best look askance at that American soldier who is sitting in the seat right next to you. He or she is the one most likely to get themselves in the news for going the fuck off on some post traumatic stress shit from endless deployments and for killing people who’ve done not a goddamn thing wrong to them.

We are busy being pointed towards a made-up enemy by the worthless warmongering shits that’s got three-fourths of the United Snakes of America hating all up and down on the people of the Middle East that we’ve been fucking over for decades past and present. And then you wonder why somebody from the Middle East should EVER want to fuck us up? You can thank your goddamn terrorist organization called the United States government for that shit since they are hell bent on terrorizing the whole goddamn world, especially the Middle East.

The CIA is as I type this, fostering hate all over the world and CIA operatives are training rebels to shit stir and are making moves to topple democratically elected leaders of other nations while we are being made to look elsewhere with finger pointing government officials telling us who our enemy is when if indeed they are our enemy, they were made so by the useless fucks we elect and those they represent, the rich warmongers who get their fucking jollies off on destruction, chaos, calamity and death and who are laughing all the way to the goddamn bank.

It is no accident that the shit that’s going down in Iraq is all over the news all of a sudden. We had heard nothing out of Iraq for quite some time even though things were not exactly kosher there. There were suicide bombings almost daily and a shitload of other hellish nightmare acts that has riddled that country since America’s filthy paws swiped the hell out of Iraq, time and time again.

Don’t you sit your fat American ass down on a goddamn plush ass couch and point at an Iraqi citizen and declare them to be our mortal enemy. Remind your stupid ass that since 1991, America has aided and abetted in the killing of over a million innocent people in Iraq. Remember the lies that were told to get American troops sent into Iraq. Remember the reasoning behind American troops remaining in Iraq long after the lies had come to light. Remember all the billions that American contractors made in Iraq. Think of the wasted trillion of our tax dollars all over a lie that Bush thought was fucking funny. Yeah, our elected officials have always been all heart, honest and full of integrity and if you believe that load of horseshit, then believe this, we ain’t got a goddamn thing to do with the chaos that is now loaded down in Iraq. We fucking start shit because of our fucked up agenda and dependence on foreign oil and because we can’t fucking stop coveting what some other country has because this one has gone to shit and ain’t no goddamn body trying to fix the issues in America. Bridges falling into rivers, drinking water tainted with every toxin you could name. Trains are steadily derailing with crude oil spilling into lakes and streams and drinking water. Electric grids are antiquated and failing. Droughts are causing entire towns to turn into ghost towns and yet, we need the military to go back into Iraq(like we fucking ever really left)because we need to help stabilize a country that WE fucking destabilized. We make so much goddamn sense and if you can’t sense the sarcasm, then hit yourself upside the fucking head to get the brain cells moving.

You want to feel safe, do you? And you think that the reason you don’t feel safe is because of some Mid East threat coming here? Feel threatened motherfuckers because it’s YOUR fucking American government that would cause a goddamn calamity to come to America. Your filthy ass government is hell bent on trying to cause some hellacious shit to be unleashed in America because then they can again point the finger at some innocent people and unleash hell on them. We are already of no account because we don’t whimper at all when getting radiated to board an airplane. We don’t whimper at all at the fact that every keystroke we type is headed straight to spy central. We don’t whimper at all that we can be taken out of our homes on some bullshit and be indefinitely detained without counsel and without being charged with a crime. We simply believe in the goodness of our government. Are you fucking kidding me? Your government is your mortal enemy! Get a goddamn clue, clueless motherfuckers and stop with the lame brain nonsense that your government would do you no harm and start thinking for yourselves. You’re busy looking around for the enemy and the enemy is every single goddamn lying, corporate-owned whored out politician. Not a one of those evil useless motherfuckers has your interest at heart. It’s all about money and power. You ain’t got it peons and so therefore, you are useless and insignificant. They’ve bigger fish to fry because your ass is already toast and don’t they know it.

America ain’t got long before it will be replaced as the world’s top dog. The shits that run this stinking, sinking shithole barge know this and they are in a last desperate ditch struggle before they go down for good and guess what! They’re taking you down with them. But remember, you were warned but you just couldn’t be bothered because you didn’t want to know. Just wait, you ain’t seen nothing yet. When the shit hits the fan, you’ll turn on your own mother and that’s a fact!

Those people in the Middle East were never your enemy. You were told that by your government and because you didn’t want to believe the obvious, you chose to take the easy way out. Well, it ain’t gonna be easy much longer. The people of Iraq ain’t gonna be the only ones suffering, tremendously! A hard row to hoe is coming to America. “So look lively there and all! Think not of what you had, into that gutter, won’t you crawl?” And crawl, you will; useless ass, clueless, hypnotized, brain dead Americanos…and remember to ‘look lively’ when you’re crawling!

A Planet Dies!

secret_society

Demonic possession
Phallic obsession
Occult inference
Dark deference
Masters over slaves
Crooks and knaves
Rituals of sacrifice
lust and avarice.

Upon a fertile field
Swords and scythes
As freedom writhes
when humanity cries
A planet dies.

This just came to me as I was discussing so-called ‘secret societies’ that are hell bent on using their massive wealth and power to destroy humanity as they crave more and more wealth and power. There has been talk of their Satanic rituals as apparently ‘Satan’ has been perceived as their ‘god’. Their ‘god’ is wealth/power.

One thing that they don’t have that many of us do is empathy. If we can but channel that empathetic nature that we share and spread it and continue to ignite it, we may stand a chance. But we are fast running out of time and there are those who cannot lift a weakened finger as they are far too weary. Call me a fool, but I believe that there are those of you out there who cannot stand what is going on. You give a damn that people are homeless and hungry and jobless and you know that the evil motherfuckers of this world will never give a goddamn about their plight.

I have written on this to the point where my fingers have actually developed a cramp and I have had to pry them apart, but I will NOT give up! There are emerging signs that people are getting fed up, everywhere! Let us hope that we ALL get fed up to the point where we form our own society and it will be no ‘secret’ that we are HUMAN and that our society is called ‘humanity’!

The Church of the ‘Holy Rollers’:Sunday Sermon

Reverend Give Me All You Got's Palace of Worship

“First of all, I would like to welcome everyone this fine Sunday morning and to thank you for ‘coming out’. Wait a minute, hold up! Gay people, I was not talking to you! We don’t want YOUR kind ‘coming out’ ‘going in’ or anything else! Here at the Church of the Holy Rollers, we don’t put up with that kind of nonsense about how you are ‘born gay’. You’re not born gay, you’re just an abomination and now you are all up in our face with your ‘gayness’! Well…we won’t stand for it! Hell no! Hallelujah! Can I get an ‘AMEN’? Thank you my brothers and sisters, that’s telling them. Now then, to continue with the sermon. Recently, there has been some talk that some of you are not adhering to the ten commandments and I am going to set the record straight TODAY on just what the ten commandments are and what they mean and how you should act on them accordingly. Now, sit up and take notice. But first, ushers, pass the collection plate around for the 25th time and we should have enough to fund my new Hennessey Venom GT. And don’t even start questioning why I need a vehicle that costs over a million dollars because you know that I visit the sick, the shut-in and the needy and by driving this baby, travelling at 287mph, that would cut down on my travel time since there are so many people desperately in need of my preaching the word. Word up!! Now, back the to sermon.”

“As I was saying, the ten commandments are to be adhered to. Hold on. Ushers, I said, USHERS! Where is the collection plate for my new building fund? No not that one. The one for that new beachfront property that I had my eye on last week. Yeah, that one! Don’t even start questioning me about why I need beachfront property. Everyone in here knows how hard I work, I mean preach in this here holy sanctuary. We have Sunday service once a month and you know what a toll it takes on my strength and my endurance to stand here and preach the word to a flock of heathens who, without my guidance, will never see the inside of the ‘Pearly Gates’. Now then, where was I? Oh right…the ten commandments. Now, heathens, as you are all aware, we have been having some shenanigans going on in the basement of this here palace of worship! Don’t even think about denying it because I saw you on the secret camera that I had installed to make sure that the trustees aren’t stealing from the collection plate. Now, I don’t hold with no fornicating on church property. You all know my philosophy on that, I mean, what the Bible says on that. Amen! There is a facility located behind this palace for fornicators and it’s got a red door with a red light over the door and it says, ‘Red Light District!’ Now, then where was I? Oh right! Now the ten commandments…wait a minute, who is disrupting my Sunday sermon with that caterwauling? The Holy Ghost? Have you paid your tithes? No? Then get the hell out of here! We don’t sanction no deadbeats up in this here holy worshipping palace! We’ll tolerate no slackers in here!”

“Where was I? Oh yes, the ten commandments are about…. What? You forgot to collect for my Armani clothing fund? All right! Listen up! This here palace of worship’s sermon is being held up because of you fumbling degenerates who can’t even read the list of my needs and send the collection plate around accordingly. We are going to clear this up once and for all! Now take note! Secretary of the church? Damn! Where the hell are you? Leave Deacon Bradley’s ass alone will you? After you make a list of my needs, you and Deacon Bradley can go to the ‘Red Light District’.  However I must warn you that Deacon Bradley’s wife was seen entering the ‘Red Light District’ with Deacon Johnson and we all know Deacon Johnsons, nickname, ‘Long Dong Silver’, but I don’t think they’re coming out anytime soon so, after you take this list down, the two of you can go on over. Don’t forget to pay the entrance fee of $500.00. It’s for the upkeep, you know. We can’t have our fornicating exposed to the world now, can we? We are fine, upstanding church folk. Don’t forget to stop at our wine shop located next door to the ‘Red Light District’ as you’ll want to ‘wet your whistle’ while getting it up, I mean, getting it on!” Hallelujah!!! Now, take note! The collection plate is to be sent around ten MORE times because the Reverend, that’s me of course. Reverend ‘Give Me All You Got’ Courtland has some needs because preaching ain’t free!”

“Number 1. Building Fund. No, not for this here palace, for MY palace, you fool!”

“Number 2. Vehicle Fund. No, no, no, not the church bus fund, my private vehicle collection fund!”

“Number 3. Vacation Fund. Damn it to hell! No, not for a ‘Vacation Bible School fund’, MY vacation fund! Now you see why I need vacations all the damn time!”

“Number 4. Robes Fund. Choir robes? The hell you say! My robes! Did you hear me, MY ROBES!!!”

“Number 5. Clothing Fund. “What?” Hell no! We ain’t running no charity here! This here Clothing Fund is for my expensive, I mean needed apparel to wear to church underneath this here robe! You got that? All righty then!”

“Number 6. Food Fund: Feed the hungry? Feed the hungry? Who the hell is up in here hungry? Didn’t we just have ‘communion’ last month? Didn’t you drink grape juice, I mean ‘wine’ and eat that crust that Usher Fucked me so hard, I mean…Usher Fucmehard handed out?! That’s enough feeding the hungry!!! We are sitting all up in the richest country on the planet so don’t give me that bullshit about ‘what about the hungry’? We got no hungry folk here in America. I have not seen one hungry person on my way here this morning. If I did, I would have had the chauffeur stop my limo and hand them my gold-plated card. Wait, strike that! I would have given them the ‘other’ card and told them to walk on over, we’d feed them that leftover burnt crust that Sister Burnathat made when she was trying to bake bread for the communion. This fund is for MY groceries! Hallelujah!!!”

“Number 7.Credit Card Fund. Why do I need a credit card? Are you questioning me? The ‘Reverend’? Do you want me to come down off this pulpit and kick your ass? You know that I need credit cards to make my hotel reservations when I’m doing community outreach in the Virgin Islands and staying at the Ritz-Carlton ain’t cheap ya know!!! Not to mention that I’ve actually got to put myself out by flying first-class over there and that ain’t cheap! And don’t forget, I need a chauffer driven limo in order to get around. Not cheap!! The meals, come on  now, you know the score!”

“Number 8. Champagne Fund. What? For communion? Are you out of your damn mind? You got grape juice, I mean ‘wine’ last month. Didn’t I give a sermon last month on greed and how it destroys the soul? Didn’t you hear me? What’s that? In the basement? What was you doing in the basement? Never mind! Hold on a minute everyone, I got to rewind this here tape. I can’t believe that I missed something. Oh hell naw!!! What the hell were you doing humping my man? Damn it to hell! It’s on!!!!!”

“Let me catch my breath! Now congregation, you can see that it ain’t easy being the Reverend of this here palace of worship church, when you got to get here, preach, kick ass and take names!!”

“Number 9. Hair Salon and Spa Fund. I don’t even want to hear it! Y’all know why!!! Do you really expect me to do my own hair and nails and keep this perfectly tanned body of mine without blemish all by myself? Don’t I need to be in tiptop condition to get through a rigorous sermon? Didn’t you just see me chip a nail by giving Sister Slut, I mean, Sister Schlut a beatdown? How in the hell can you begrudge me a month at the Spa when the only way, I said, the ONLY way… that you have a snowball’s chance in hell of not going to hell is by my showing up here and YOU listening to me deliver the ‘good’ word to you? You don’t want to get through the pearly gates? What are you sitting up in here for? By listening to the word, you get a guaranteed spot in the heavenly paradise that awaits you on the other side of this here earthly realm that we’ve all got to leave at some point. I’m here to get you across! Now listen up! There will be NO further outbursts in here! Brother Mafio and Brother Thlug are just itching to do some knuckle dusting. Now try me!”

“No. 10: Reverend Give Me All You Got’s Salary Fund. This here is THE most important fund of all because as you know, my time is valuable. I had to go through an entire one day class to become ordained to preach all up in this palace of worship and how many of you can say that you are better educated than I am? Hands please? What? The hell you say! How the hell is all six hundred of you smarter than me? Say what? A degree? It’s hot as hell outside! The degree is up there in the triple digits. This is exactly the ignorance that I spoke about two months ago. Don’t come up in here, knowing you ignorant and then try and tell me that you got a degree when we all know that a degree is related to the temperature. And I had to tell you just how hot it is outside. See? This is why you’re going to hell! Trying to act like you educated and you don’t even know about temperature! How do you expect the heavenly ‘father’ to put up with you In all of your ignorance? Child, come here! I got to lay hands on you!!! Now, repeat after me, ‘I am an ignorant sinner, not fit to kneel in front of the good Reverend here and I beg forgiveness for displaying  my ignorance for the entire congregation to witness. I am now going to put more money into the Reverend’s Salary Fund because the Reverend knows best!’ Was that hard? Now go sit the hell down!”

“Those are the ten commandments that the congregation is to adhere to. The Reverend is THE most important member of ANY church, especially this here palace of worship that I’ve, I mean… we’ve built here. The saving of souls has been my duty and my obligation for many years and I do not take my duties and obligations and responsibilities lightly. Why do you think that we have such an upstanding record in our community? It is because of me! Our sins! Strike that, YOUR sins are kept secret thanks to me AND all of your many vices remain hidden on my tapes. I have only had to resort to blackmail twelve times. Now then, let us pray before we depart these holy and sanctified walls of this palace.”

“Thank you for bringing the heathens to me so that I can show them the light, the truth and the word. The word is power and the word is money and through power and money, will they be led to the light. We need a lot of both to keep the sheep, I mean, the flock in line. Strike that! The congregation that is, need to understand that the only way to get through the ‘Pearly Gates’ is through handing me money. Strike that! The way to get through the ‘Pearly Gates’ is in doing the good deeds of seeing to the Reverend’s needs and funding accordingly. We fight an uphill battle, but the saving of souls is our business…uh is our goal, not to mention raising more money for the Reverend’s Vacation Fund and that IS the truth! Amen!”

“Now, get out!” “No, not you, Deacon Look Damn Fine!” “Uh…I mean Deacon Lukedamfine!”

“Wait a damn minute!” Who the hell struck ‘good’ out in front of my name? I got some tapes to rewind and then some more ass-kicking is about to commence!”

“Now THAT concludes this sermon for Sunday, September 22nd! Now get the hell out!”

The Devolution of Evolution

devolution_n

There are those who say that we must wait for human evolution

and that we are just as wrong if we start a revolution.

Humans have devolved into what you see today.

There are those who glimpse the suffering and they simply turn away.

They care not for the hungry, no tears shed for the sick.

They beat them down and shame them, it usually does the trick.

Must they take another look; no glasses hued in rose

and speak to me of what they see with eyes that do not close.

There is a war throughout the land in one form or another.

We do not love our sister and we hate our foreign brother.

There are those who walk the streets, they have no home at all.

They were sold out by the bankers who never take a fall.

The rich have all the power and the poor are in a bind.

If you fail to see the problem, there is something on your mind.

Or could it be you just won’t see because you would reject

that we have not evolved and are stuck in retrospect.

The ones who see and understand that something must be done

are those who care for all and not just care for one.

If ever we evolve, and there is no sign we have

the future looks too bleak if what we use is salve,

to staunch the flow of blood from those who are in pain

and never hold accountable, the ones who wield the chain.

Alone, we cannot act, we need you all onboard

as this is not a game, and we can ill afford,

to not join in the fray nor start the protest march

nor arm ourselves with nature’s tools and branch out like the larch.

Where once we stood alone, we now stand arm in arm

And those who are the enemy are those who do us harm.

Violence begets violence and this I understand

but power will not yield with just a reprimand.

Those with much to lose will crush us if we try.

They must hear our roar, they must heed our cry.

For peace can never reign without a show of might.

No matter who is wrong, no matter who is right.

The New Face of Evil

"Never judge a book by its cover." "Bright and shiny on the outside; the inside, rotten to the core."
“Never judge a book by its cover.”
“Bright and shiny on the outside, the inside; rotten to the core.”

They picked him very carefully as all the world can see.
He’s easy on the eye and with a great personality.

Those who went before him set the stage for what would come.
He’s like a phantom in the night; we ask, “Where is he really from?”

Oh how little did we know, he’d bring destruction in his wake.
No Robin Hood he is, from the rich he does not take.

He’s a banker’s friend; a corporate tool who’s sent us spiraling down.
He hails from a gangster’s paradise in a city called, “chi-town.”

He’s led us straight to hell and he’s smiled the journey long.
We crashed upon the rocks as though he’d sung the siren’s song.

What’s left is barren land and the poor are all but dead.
Those who could not lose, put a bullet through their head.

The serfs are drudging painfully as they keep the rich afloat.
They’re scared to make a sound; they dare not rock the boat.

Their fate would be just like the rest; that’s not to be endured.
The Black man lent his face and the white man was assured,
that all would be as he declared; no detail left to chance.
The white man pulls the strings, but it’s the Black man in the manse.

The white puppet masters are pulling the strings behind the charming, smiling, engaging, false, fake-ass face of Barack Obama, a puppet bought with blood money. He is a willing tool for those who consider themselves to be the elite. They are nothing more than worthless scum, depraved, lying, greedy, deceitful crooks with no compassion or morality. They are why we are constantly at war. They are why people are working for poverty wages. They are why we have homeless, hungry and uninsured people in this world. The hopeless, sunken eyed, gaunt people of the world watch and they wait……

Fear And Terror

fearterror1

Let’s sponsor more terrorists and start some more shit.
War is never over; freedom takes another hit.

What excuse do we have? It really doesn’t matter.
We can always put the blame on some innocent mother.

She shouldn’t have gone shopping on that fateful day,
If she hadn’t she’d be alive and not out of the way.

We’ve done so much damage to many a culture.
We’re so evil and depraved; we put the blush to a vulture.

There’ll never be a target that we can’t find.
We practice on people, it’s how we unwind.

The simple things in life are drones and wars.
Among our assets are the ones behind bars.

We arm the rebels, they’re a motley crew.
They get the job done, it takes only a few.

Those who pull the strings are loving life.
They love to see the struggles, the tears and the strife.

We give them what they want and the pay is really good.
We keep the Blacks gated in an inner city hood.

With no chance to advance; they’ve got nowhere to run.
We gave them an option; we gave them a gun.

This is but a game and we don’t aim to lose.
How could we, with the weapons we use.

We cultivate hate; it’s all part of the plan.
You point the finger, but it’s at the wrong man.

The powerful control us. They are why we are constantly at war. They are why we hate each other. They are why people have to strike for a decent wage. They are why prisons are overflowing. They are why a mother cannot shop in Iraq, nor in Yemen or Pakistan or even in America because we can be struck down anywhere and everywhere. We have no control over our destiny. We have no control over our own lives and our future. History has repeatedly shown that the U.S. government has funded terrorists and terrorism and the present day fear that many Americans are experiencing is due to the actions of our government. Our government is terrorizing us. A person could or could not be a terrorist and it all depends on who the government decides is a terrorist. For those of us who are war weary, we are just going to have to stay that way because the powerful want it that way. I would like to end this by saying, “peace,” but there is NO peace nor will there ever be “peace!,” not if our government has anything to say about it.
