America, The Shithole!

There is no greater shithole on the face of this planet than America!

We’ve got a shit for brains racist president that makes no bones about the fact that he is racist as hell while the White House is frantically running around trying to assure everyone that Trump never referred to Haiti and African countries as, ‘shitholes’.

President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House, a Democratic aide briefed on Thursday’s meeting told NBC News.

According to the aide, when the group came to discussing immigration from Africa, Trump asked why America would want immigrants from “all these shithole countries” and that the U.S. should have more people coming in from places like Norway.

Well, why the hell didn’t this shithole originally drag people over to this shithole from Norway to slave away on plantations? Why the fuck are Norwegians just now becoming so popular with this flaming racist president who is just as damn racist as the first presidents of this stinking ass shithole?

People from African countries would not already be here if not for the fact that this shithole had people in it who looked just like Norwegians but who were so damn lazy, they didn’t even want to pick their own cotton, tobacco, vegetables or do their own goddamn cooking and cleaning. This shithole could have long since been filled with Norwegians and only Norwegians if it weren’t so fucking racist since only Africans were considered inferior enough to do backbreaking and menial tasks as slaves.

But now, this fucking shithole wants Norwegians? And people from African countries should be glad to remain in their huts in Africa? You know what? My Black ass would have been mightily glad to have been able to remain with my ancestors in their goddamn huts, but you white motherfuckers weren’t about to have that. Oh hell no! You needed slaves and it is quite apparent that your first consideration for that dubious distinction was not the Norwegians, it was those who were quite happy to remain in their motherfucking huts, that is until today, since Donald Trump tells us so.

Here in this shithole to end and all shitholes is a goddamn pile of shit with a flaming racist tongue protruding and spitting out shit, left and right about what other countries are shitholes? Talk about shitty balls. That motherfucker’s got the balls of bulls to even vomit that putrid shit up!

But let me expound further on what makes this shithole, a shithole!

This WHITE MALE MASS MURDERER who killed dozens and wounded hundreds is first up!

Don’t forget about what happened in Las Vegas! What a shithole!

Sandra Bland, murdered in a Texas jail and the shits that run this shithole called it, “SUICIDE!” Fuck that!

Where was the justice for Sandra Bland in this racist shithole?

‘How A Police Officer Shot A Sleeping 7-Year-Old To Death’
Aiyana Mo’nay Stanley-Jones was sleeping in her home on the east side of Detroit on the night of May 16, 2010, when officers barged into the house. Officer Joseph Weekley fired his gun and shot to death a sleeping child, seven year-old Aiyana Mo’nay Stanley-Jones.
So, what did this child do to deserve getting shot dead? She wasn’t selling drugs. She didn’t have a rap sheet. She was asleep and murdered and what happened to her killer? Nothing! Because he is white and this innocent seven year old child was Black. It wasn’t her fault that she was living in America, The Mother of ALL Shitholes! Where is the justice for her?

Muhammad-Ali was almost jailed and was stripped of his right to get into a boxing ring in the prime of his life because he recognized this worthless racist shithole for what it is, a shithole!

Philando Castile, murdered in front of his girlfriend and her daughter for cooperating with ‘law enforcement’ trying to produce his identification and no one was held responsible for murdering that man in this racist shithole!

Alton Sterling, another Black man murdered for no reason because just being Black is no reason to be lying in a morgue in this racist shithole, but that’s what he got!

These nine Black people were holding prayer service in their church in this shithole when a racist gunned them down. But I guess it was their fault since they weren’t of Norwegian descent.

Tamir Rice, aged 12, dead! Murdered by a racist cop because he was playing with a toy gun in a park in this racist shithole!

Anna Brown, dead, aged 29 because she went to a hospital because she was sick. The hospital called the police and she died on a jail cell floor from blood clots in her legs that traveled to her lungs. She, apparently, was not Norwegian and so therefore, was not deserving of care in this flaming shithole!

Barbara Dawson, dead, same reason as Anna Brown in the above picture is dead. She fell ill, went to a hospital and was promptly arrested. She died after having been handcuffed, dragged out of the hospital and collapsed. Too bad she wasn’t Norwegian in this shithole!

Remember Emmett Till? His mother leans, inconsolable, over the coffin of her 14-year old son who was brutalized and lynched by feral racists in this shithole for doing not a damn thing. But then, he wasn’t Norwegian, so I guess that explains this, doesn’t it???!!!

Michael Brown and Eric Garner, both dead. And Eric Garner’s death was filmed and he was killed by a cop using an illegal chokehold and who was held accountable for his death in this racist shithole? And so many lies were told about Michael Brown, it isn’t even funny, but I do know that he was shot dead and his body was allowed lie there in the hot sun, uncovered, for hours as though he was a dog, shot dead. For the love of !!!! Again, too bad he was not of Norwegian descent because maybe, he’d still be alive.

Have you seen enough proof of what a shithole America is, a racist shithole, at that? Or did you really think that a shithole has to do more so with how a place looks than what it really is. Because all of the above happenings makes America, the shithole to end all shitholes. And how dare that pompous, racist, megalomaniac sit on his shitty ass and declare that Haiti and all African countries as being “shitholes” when America has always and will always reign as the “Supreme Shithole To End All Shitholes!”

But I’ll leave you with something else that is reminiscent of a shithole!


Look at the maps and take note of how close to ground zero you are in this toxic shithole of glyphosates.


And yet, that racist fuck, Trump thinks that I wanted my ancestors to be dragged from what he calls, “shitholes?” Is that fuck for real? Seriously? I am not some ‘African’ trying to immigrate here. And why they would want to is a complete and utter mystery to me! Maybe the Norwegians, back in the day, would have come, willingly, but my people were dragged to this SHITHOLE!


Why Are You Surprised At Seeing This?

H&M only pulled this sweatshirt from its stores in the U.S. They are still available for sale in the U.K. and probably anywhere else Black people would like to buy them and have their children walk around advertising this product for H&M.

Frankly, I am at a loss as to understand what parent would allow their child to model this sweatshirt? Just because the white man thinks it up and has it made in China, do we as Black people, really not share some of the blame when all is said and done? Because there is no way in hell that I would have allowed a child of mine to model that sweatshirt. And so what does that say for the parent(s) who did?

Seriously? Should we really be surprised at seeing this especially when a white person gets with a Black person, it is stated that the white person has “Jungle Fever!” And of course, inner cities that host mainly Black bodies are described as “Concrete Jungles.” And Hillary Clinton did say that “Blacks are Super Predators and should be brought to heel!” When have we ever been seen as ‘human’ to whites? Since Black people in America were described as being three fifths human, back in the days of blatant slavery, what has changed? Not a damn thing!

So, who was this sweatshirt designed for? How many monkeys sitting in trees in  jungles are going to be sporting this sweatshirt?

Do those monkeys look as though they are in need of a sweatshirt that states, “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle?” What would they know about which one of them is the ‘coolest monkey in the jungle’?And what form of payment are they going to use to purchase this sweatshirt? Bitcoin? A debit or a credit card? Cash? Are they going to pay in francs, pesos, dollars or the yuan?

Black folks! When will you get a clue and stop enabling this mess by participating in it? How many white people do you think have lined up to buy this sweatshirt? We are the only group of people who have no problem being made the butt of hideous jokes that are SO not funny. We don’t care that we allow ourselves to be played and for what? A few dollars thrown our way to set our children up as examples of buffoonery?

Look at the sweatshirt that the little white boy is sporting!

Hmmmm…’Mangrove Jungle

Official Survival Expert

Junior tour guide’

There is certainly no monkey featured on the sweatshirt for the white boy who is also the white man, the “Official Survival Expert!” Those monkeys don’t stand a chance against the “Official Survival Experts!” Just you ask all the Black monkeys that are dying in ‘concrete jungles’ that were built just for them. Housed in substandard housing with roaches and rats crawling all over them because they are not considered, human. Only the “Official Survival Expert” whites are ‘human’ and so therefore, rule over the “Mangrove Jungle,” killing those monkeys with impunity, sending their bodies to the morgue, riddled with bullets for having the audacity to have been forced into stinking cargo ships, crossing oceans just to have the dubious pleasure of donning for the white man, a sweatshirt, telling him how he is, “The Coolest Monkey In The Jungle.”

How right the white man is for calling us  monkeys because as you can see from the picture, we don’t have a problem with it for if we did, not one Black parent would have been found who was willing to have their child model that hideous display of racism, ignorance and stupidity.

This is why we have no problem with the white man calling us, “Nigger!” Because a Black man, woman and child can be found in every film ever produced by a white man that depicts slavery and I am without a doubt that those Black characters were indeed referred to as “Niggers!” We are the instigators of our own downfall because we cannot see beyond a few Benjamins that the white man throws at us to play his slave,  his monkey, his fool and his bedmate!

“White folks, try this on for size!”

  One Size Fits All!

And As The Seconds Tick Away Towards The New Year…

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 2017 or 2016 or 2015? 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. Exactly how you were in 2015, 2016, 2017 is how you will be in 2018 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.

And so, I will not say, “Happy New Year!” I will merely say, “Welcome to the rest of your life!” 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.

“Welcome, To The Rest Of Your Life! Cheers!”

Just What I Have Been Saying All Along!


I usually read Margaret Kimberley’s blog over on Black Agenda Report and her latest is right on point. It is exactly what I have been saying for quite some time and in no uncertain terms. Although Ms. Kimberley does not use colorful words like I do, she manages to get her point across.

“We know that the country was and is deeply racist and that we live in an environment that literally endangers our lives. We are never safe, regardless of who occupies the white house. We also know that white people who would never consider themselves racists are in fact just that, and that we must be on guard against them. Perhaps there should be investigative reporting about their ability to compartmentalize and the pretense that allows them to feel superior despite their own foibles.”

This bears repeating:

“We know that white people who would never consider themselves racists are in fact just that, and that we must be on guard against them.”

Sure, you’ve met the white woman who has stood beside you as you protested over the fact that yet another unarmed Black man, woman or child was killed by white cops for selling untaxed cigarettes, playing with a toy gun in a park, failing to use the right turn signal and you were told by that white woman that that just wasn’t right. But did you also know that one of her best friends is married to one of the most racist cops, you’ll ever meet? No, she won’t tell you that, but she will stand there, in fake innocence and move her lips to form words that suggest she is outraged by a cop killing a nigger. She is faking her protest of the murder. And faking it she is because she is part of the problem for if not, why has she not spoken up about the fact of a cop’s racist attitude to those who could get him taken off the force? It is because she is racist; that cop is what she is.

But of course, you’ve met the guy in the company lunchroom that spouts off all the time about how many Black friends he has. Truth be told, he has far more white supremacist friends and when they get together, those two Black ‘friends’ that he claims to have are niggers all day and night because you see, he is what they are and they are what he is; there is no difference.

And surely, you have heard white people speak out against ‘white guilt’. They ask, “Why should they have ‘white guilt’ over something that occurred before they were born?” Oh, that is just too easy to answer. You don’t have ‘white guilt’ and the reason you don’t have ‘white guilt’ is because you are just as racist as your long dead ancestors; the same ancestors that whipped, shackled, raped and killed my ancestors just because they could. You are no different because if you were, we would not be dealing with the very same racism, prejudice, Jim Crow, bigotry and slavery that is still in play today. Don’t tell me that slavery is no longer practiced in America because I can and will call you, “A liar!” Over two million Black men and women are sitting inside FOR PROFIT PRISONS for having done no more than have a dime bag of weed on their person when some racist cop rolled up on them and the white man that was buying the weed from them was allowed to go on his merry way.

If you whites of today were any different from those that spawned your ass, gentrification would not be rearing its ugly head in cities that used to house mostly Black folks in them. Whenever you feel ‘discommoded’, the first thing you do is move whomever is in your way out of your way to make you have a better day and so if you were not racist, you’d think twice about displacing people who have been in their homes for decades but because you’ve now chosen to live there, their rents have exploded and they are no longer able to reside in the area, thus enabling your sorry ass to come in and take over and make it ‘yuppy’ or ‘preppy’. And yet, you have the nerve to scream that you should not be hearing about ‘white guilt’. You don’t hear about ‘white guilt’ because such as you are, you have no such qualms in the first damn place. You aren’t wired to feel guilty about a goddamn thing because your white privilege renders you incapable of feeling guilt. You are just as privileged as your ancestors were who crossed oceans to enslave those who did not look like them and to this very day, the same applies.

The Indians indigenous to America, dying like they are, are a direct result of the fact that you feel no ‘white guilt’. The Black people in America, who were steered by whites to take out subprime mortgage loans even though they qualified for prime mortgage loans and lost their homes, are a direct result of the fact that you feel no ‘white guilt’. The Maoris of New Zealand, who, to this very day, have no political representation whatsoever and suffer mass incarceration, are a direct result of the fact that you feel no ‘white guilt’. The Aborigines of Australia, who were pushed off their land and who are still treated with contempt to this very day by those who stole their land, are a direct result of the fact that you feel no ‘white guilt’. And what do all of these groups have in common? What was stolen from them by YOUR ancestors is still stolen from them today. They were fucked up by the likes of you and they still are. It began with your ancestors and continues with you! And so how in hell are you any different from those who spawned you? You’re not! But you should have “no white guilt,” you say? When have you ever? You’re never guilty of a goddamn thing; benevolent, kind and humanitarian as you claim to be. And we all know that’s a lot of rot! So, spout your nonsense to someone who may stupidly believe it, but I’m certainly not buying what you’re selling. No one is asking something of you that you are incapable of to begin with. All that these people wanted from you was for you to leave them the hell alone in the first goddamn place and if not that, at least stop making life so hard for them now, even after your ancestors fucked them up! But you can’t even do that!

And lastly, there’s not a goddamn thing supremacy like about any of you! That is the biggest lie of all! How can a race of people who collectively engage in genocide, racism, pedophilia, molestation, annihilation, confiscation of the land of others, slavery, war, gentrification, mass imprisonment of certain ethnic groups and the list is endless ever get anywhere near the word, “supremacy?” You cannot! But you’re brazen creatures, you are, with the balls of bulls and in this instance, I would not take that as a compliment because the last thing I’d ever do is compliment the likes of you! And as for the Black folks out there who consort with whites, I can only shake my head over your willful ignorance, stupidity and insanity in crawling into bed with an enemy so evil and so vile, hell would vomit them back up!

Trump To Dead Soldiers Widow, “He Knew What He Was Signing Up For When He Enlisted.”


Donald Trump speaks the truth AGAIN and AGAIN the fallout is unbelievable!

President Trump told the widow of one of the soldiers killed in Niger that he “knew what he was getting into,” said U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Miami), who said she was in the car where the phone call was received.

Army Sgt. La David Johnson was purportedly in Niger advising local troops on how to counter Boko Haram and al Qaeda when he and three other American soldiers were leaving a meeting whereupon they were shot dead. So much for their role as ‘advisers’. Now, we are not focusing on exactly why the government of Niger is in need of America’s military to advise them on how to handle their own business, issues or problems that’s got nothing whatsoever to do with America. We are to focus on what Donald Trump is alleged to have said to a widow about her dead husband.

Black-assed, dead Army Sgt. La David Johnson had no business in Niger in the first place. What happens in Niger is Niger’s business and yet, Sgt. Johnson was in Niger minding Niger’s business and in the process, got himself shot dead. Is America at war with Niger? Has anyone in Niger sent a missile to America? Has a ‘terrorist’ from Niger escaped Niger’s officials, boarded a plane, landed in America and promptly shot up hundreds of people as was the case with the ‘white’ terrorist that did exactly that in Las Vegas a few weeks ago? Uh…that would be a resounding “NO!”

So, yes indeed, Sgt. Johnson got exactly what he signed on the dotted line for. He signed on the dotted line to KILL OR BE KILLED and so no one should be surprised at all that Sgt. Johnson was killed. He had a gun, did he not? He was taught how to use that gun, was he not? And so whose fault is it that the other guy got the upper hand on Sgt. Johnson? It was Sgt. Johnson’s fault. No one told him to have eyes in the back of his head? No one told him that everyone he meets is presumably an enemy? So, keep your head low and your gun ready? Too bad, so sad, shit happens, right? Right!

Now, let’s all get bent-out-of-shape because Donald Trump told Sgt. Johnson’s widow that he “knew what he was getting into,” because Sgt. Johnson’s widow did not know did she? Of course she did! Did she think that Sgt. Johnson’s checks were issued on his behalf for reparations? No! Did she think Sgt. Johnson’s checks were issued on his behalf because he was providing modeling services for the U.S. military? No! Get real! Sgt. Johnson and his family were housed, fed and received medical coverage because Sgt. Johnson signed his body over to the elites killing squads known as the U.S. military. He signed any rights he had to live over to the elites when he signed the dotted line to “kill or be killed.” The elites don’t care about Sgt. Johnson, nor do they care about his widow and his children who are left behind to mourn their father who would rather be over in Niger minding Niger’s business over minding his own. No one forced Sgt. Johnson to sign on the dotted line. No one held a ‘gun’ to his head and made him fly over to Niger to ‘advise’ Niger’s officials as to how to fight who the hell knows who!

Did Sgt. Johnson know what he was signing up for when he enlisted? Damn right, he did! And for that he got just what every dead soldier receives; he got a flag-draped coffin. Now, whether or not his family received letter or a phone call from his commander-in-chief is anyone’s guess, but he got just what he signed on the dotted line for. So, if you don’t expect to get shot dead when you sign on the dotted line to “kill or be killed,” then don’t sign on the dotted line. I do understand that Americans are some stupid shits, but even this should be crystal clear to you. And if it looks to you as though those who send you to foreign lands to “kill or be killed,” don’t give a damn about you, it is because they don’t give a damn about you! Donald Trump was a draft dodger because he was not about to risk his neck for not a goddamn thing because why should his ass suit up and fight the elites wars? He thumbed his nose at “risking his life for love of country, freedom, liberty and justice;” because he knew what you can’t seem to understand in that these are mere useless words that have no meaning for the likes of Donald Trump and the elites who send other peoples children to die for no cause at all. This country has never stood for freedom, liberty and justice because this country has never understood what those words mean and so just how can you fight for something that has no bearing on a country you were born in? You cannot. You are not fighting to keep America safe. You are fighting for American hegemony; you are fighting for elites to own and control the world just as they own and control you! But because they feed you patriotic bullshit, you lap that shit up, swallow it down and beg for more and then get pissed off because someone stated the obvious to you; that you “knew what you were signing up for when you enlisted.”

You fight for something that never was. You are killed for nothing! There is no honor in dying for hypocrisy and that is exactly what you are dying for; for America to continue to reign supreme when it comes to hypocrisy. How can a nation that is filled with hatred, white supremacy, illegitimacy, stolen lands, stolen people, bigotry, prejudice, Jim Crow, slavery, racism and mass murder ever be synonymous with freedom, justice and liberty? It cannot, not when a gnat couldn’t wipe its ass on the amount of freedom, justice and liberty that can be found in America. You die because you are too stupid to see beyond the fake ass displays of patriotism; a flag that is literally dripping with the blood of Indians and slaves. You die because you are too blind to see past the first stanza of the national anthem; an anthem that pays homage to slavery, an anthem that you are supposed to sing proudly as you are led off to fight people you have never met and who bear you no ill will but yet, you expect them to not want to kill those who are in their lands minding their business. You die because you are too willing to be a tool for those who wouldn’t spit on you if you were on fire to help put it out but for whom you willingly and knowingly and with malice forethought sign up to do their dirty work and then when you are killed, they tell your family members, “He knew what he was signing up for when he enlisted.” Oh yes, he knew! And Sgt. Johnson signed up any way.

“So Mrs. Johnson, when your baby is born, tell your baby that his father died for hypocrisy. His father died for nothing. His father died to protect slavery, stolen lands, stolen people, hypocrisy, rape, torture, enslavement, whips, shackles, chains, prejudice, bigotry, racism, white supremacy, capitalism, neo-liberalism, American hegemony. Yeah! You tell him/her that!”


And for Black folks to take up arms in defense of this shithole called America is a disgrace to your slave ancestors who fought against the Americans; who fought with English soldiers for their freedom. Francis Scott Key who purportedly wrote the national anthem; the star-spangled banner, had his ass handed to him by a battalion of Colonial Marines; Black men who were fighting on the side of the English. Key was so pissed off that he got his comeuppance at the hands of Black men that he wrote, in favor of slavery, in one of the stanzas of the star-spangled banner, the stanza that you never heard sung by Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Ray Charles, Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Luther Vandross, Beyoncé and others. Oh, no! You never heard this stanza being sung, but you had damn well better believe that those who sang the first stanza knew about this one!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

At Black people, especially those who should know better, I can only shake my head over their willful acceptance of third class citizenship in a country that continues to view them as slaves and will forever do so. You perform for Massa today just as your ancestors did hundreds of years ago, just as Sgt. Johnson did until he got what he signed up for. “No refuge could save the hireling and the slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.” No, indeed it could not! Just you ask Sgt. Johnson and his widow!

I’m Back!

It’s been awhile, I know. But if anyone has read my last blog post, then you already know that I was hell bent on getting out of Baltimore and I could not wait for the movers to fit me in on their schedule. I ordered a Penske truck, hired some guys to load the truck and actually put my ‘big’ girl pants on and drove the truck myself for hundreds of miles. Now, some of you may recall that when I was attempting to leave Minnesota heading for Baltimore, I could not even drive my vehicle because of injuries I sustained in a recent car crash, but this time around, car crash be damnned, I was going to get the hell out of Baltimore, one way or another. I drove hell for leather out of Baltimore and I didn’t stop except for gas and restroom breaks and of course, me being me, I happened to chance upon an overdose victim lying on a bathroom floor in a Sheetz gas station in the back of beyond. People were yelling for someone to get the baby that had fallen out of her hands and landed on the floor beside the overdose victim who was in the women’s restroom, also lying on the floor. For the love of!!! And for the first time in my life, I had to use a GASP!, men’s restroom. You guys can have it. One young lady who was about 12 was with her mother and her three siblings and when she saw the inside of the men’s room, she gasped and ran out while her mother was begging her to use the restroom because they did not want to have to stop again right up the road. That little lady was having none of it. Not to mention, one of the workers at the gas station had to provide us ladies with toilet tissue. You guys don’t wipe your butt? GEBUS CHRIST! You’re nasty! But as usual, I digress.

I made it out of Baltimore, just barely because I got stuck in horrific traffic and was basically crawling out of that hellhole. But I made it out. Where I am now is Hillbilly Heaven, Redneck Row, Klan Headquarters, NRA Recruitment Center, Deer Hunters Anonymous, Trailer Park Outcasts, No-Teeth Bubba Club and the list is endless, but you get the message. So far, thankfully, none of the above mentioned groups have bothered to ‘bother’ me. They’re too busy at the gun range and at the road side gun shows to even look in my general direction. Do I feel threatened? Not at all. You see, I was raised amongst this lot and don’t I know them or what? I know them and they know the likes of me and I can put up with them more so than where I left; Baltimore, that is. Ain’t it something how I can put up with the ‘Supremacy Clubs’ but I couldn’t put up with being in “The Hood?”

Now, I bet you’re saying, “Shelby, have you lost your mind?” No, not yet, I don’t think. Just because I now live in a trailer park with all the riffraff you can imagine is no reason to suppose that I am worse off than I was in Baltimore. Like I said, I grew up around the likes of these folks who go on and on about ‘supremacy’ to whomever will listen, but the thing is see, I don’t listen. I’m too busy swilling my moonshine right alongside the likes of them. We understand each other and my trailer is just a bit wider than theirs. You see, I gots me a ‘double wide’ since I had so much stuff loaded up in the truck and the folks that make up Hillbilly Heaven, Redneck Row, Klan Headquarters, NRA Recruitment Center, Deer Hunters Anonymous, Trailer Park Outcasts and No-Teeth Bubba Club actually helped me unload the truck and moved me in. Once I opened my mouth and said, “Howdy y’all!” They knew I was from a neck of the woods like their own. I may have a little deeper tint to my skin, but it meant no difference to them. They asked me how I liked their ‘gawd’, Donald Trump and I said, “I think he’s the greatest thing for America since the Boston Tea Party and that right there sent them into spasms of hoots and hollers. They even passed the jug of corn liquor around to me and after I swiped it with my sweater sleeve, I partook of a swig and I gotta tellya, it put hair on my chest. But, we is getting along, oh yes, we is. In fact, we had a discussion long into the night about Trump and the national anthem and the flag and #TakeAKnee and they were of course against taking a knee and I told them that likewise, I was agin taking a knee. They was outdone that I was, a few of ’em were, while some of em just leaned back with a knowing grin on their face like they knew what I was going to say about that.

I said, “I wouldn’t take a knee for the national anthem, nor would I place my hand over my heart because I ain’t American. That’s for you guys to do. I happen to be here on sufferance through no fault of my own and so that lets me off the hook in so far as recognizing national anthems, flags and the like. How do they apply to me? They don’t. Why should I get bent out of shape over an anthem and a flag that has no meaning for me since I was never recognized as a citizen of this nation? If others want to make a big deal out of something that does not pertain to them in any way, shape or form, then that’s on them, but as for me, I got no skin in the ‘game’. I’m merely a bystander. I am not required to take up arms in defense of this nation because this is not my nation. This is not my country for if it were, then I would have no need to take a knee when the national anthem was played. I would have no need to refuse to place my hand over my heart when reciting the pledge of allegiance. Pledge allegiance to what? A country that has never recognized me as a citizen? And why should I get upset if Donald Trump calls some grown men who play a child’s game, ‘sons of bitches’ because he is just doing what he has been doing since getting himself elected; being an egotistical asshole? This fool lives to goad people into playing right into his hands. Donald Trump is good for America because he has been able to do what no other president could do and that is to expose America’s hypocrisy for all the world to see. He has given you guys in the Klan and you Hillbilly Heaven Boys and you Redneck Row guys, your gonads back. You can now waltz down the street flying your confederate flags and wave your rifles and handguns in the air without hearing your president condemn you for doing so. You feel that he is one of you. He got cho back. You feel that since Obama had my back for eight years, it’s now YOUR turn. So, hey! I ain’t mad at none of you guys because even though Obama ignored the likes of me, Trump is going to do what for you? Exactly what he has done; embolden you to show your true colors and for that, I thank him. I have always known where we stand, but it had to take Donald Trump for some to figure it out? Unbefuckingbelievable! Now, pass that jug over here again!”

So you see folks, Donald Trump is quite actually doing more FOR America than any one of us could have ever hoped for. He has removed all doubt that racism, bigotry, prejudice, intolerance and hatred was ever really on its way out the door. It has simply been seething beneath a thin surface, waiting to be uncovered. And while I was waiting to get internet service hooked up to my double wide trailer, I was perusing blogs on my flimsy, cheap ‘smartphone’ and I came across so many blogs by ‘whites’ who stated that since Donald Trump exposed what ALL Black folks already knew, they are now quite aware that they are actually, drum roll please, “A RACIST!” WOW! May they now go to the head of the class! Some expressed the desire to change. Others wondered if they could do so. Some claimed to have had no idea that they were racist until after having been confronted with acts of racism whereas they saw themselves thanks to those ‘uncovered acts’. Don’t that beat all? I do believe that I would know, and in no uncertain terms, if I had it in for people who filled me with hatred for them based solely on the color of their skin of which they have no control. But, by all means, ‘white’ folks, please continue in your attempts to pretend that you are just now finding out, thanks to Donald Trump’s descent to the presidency that you are what you’ve always been; flaming hypocritical shits who are indeed, racist, ignorant, hate-filled, pathetic worms who slither around on this planet filling it with your toxic slime.

And no, I will never acknowledge your anthems or your flags. “I Am Not Your Negro.” I will not celebrate your holidays. I will never bear witness to what you consider to be your achievements when your achievements are not your own but are due to the backbreaking efforts of those who look like me while you took the credit and banked the profits. To me, this is not about an anthem or a flag, but about your flaming hypocrisy and arrogance in thinking that someone had to point out to you that you are a vile piece of filth not even worthy to be worm food. Fuck you!

Yes indeed, I am back! Now, ain’t you glad! I know you is, you pasty-faced, fuck-faced racist shits!

A Child Was Born!


A child was born, dark as night,
and sent out into the world.
Everywhere he turned,
such insults, people hurled.

He took this all in stride,
grew up and became a man.
Took one look at his skin,
it was darker than a tan.

On a mountaintop, he stood,
looking out on a sea of hate.
He decided that once and for all,
he’d be the master of his own fate.

He had been followed for many a day,
even when he’d stopped to rest.
He thought he’d never feel secure,
knew that to him, this was a test.

God, they said, loved him
and he believed it for awhile.
He carried with him, a Bible.
 It was evidence at his trial.

You see this man, he finally snapped
on a hot, sunny day in June.
One insult was one too many,
a white man called him, a baboon.

He took his Bible in his hand
and he beat that white man good.
His blood did fill the pages,
it soaked right through his hood.

The Klan, they’d met their match.
Hate finally beat out love.
And the moral of this story?
A man will push back when he’s shoved.

Now remember, you read it here first. Black people are seriously starting to get fed up with white folks’ bullshit and there is going to come a day of reckoning. So, please continue to treat us like shit and you’ll find yourselves wondering what the hell! Keep your hatred coming and soon we will forget about all of those fake-assed fairy tales your ancestors got us listening to about the Buybull, Jebus Christ and some more religious shit. We are going to stop with the preachyfying and get with the program that we are going to ‘stand our ground’ and ain’t nobody’s day gonna be sunny when that happens. It ain’t here yet, but by all the sinners in church, itsa coming.

Stand In Solidarity With You? HA! (A Re-Post)


I am going to do a complete about face and I am going to stand in solidarity with the white motherfuckers who are now fucked up and ain’t hardly liking it. I am going to stand in solidarity with them because they stood in solidarity with me.

When I lost my job because I was the last person to get hired and when the economy tanked, I was the first person to get laid off. You white motherfuckers stood in solidarity with me. You told the boss, “that ain’t hardly fair! She’s such a hard worker. If you fire her, you’ve got to fire me too. We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When my credit took a nosedive because I lost my job and couldn’t pay the rent and was homeless with my two kids, you white motherfuckers stood in solidarity with me. You spoke up and said, “those goddamn credit reports are hurting those who have lost their jobs. It ain’t hardly right and we’re standing in solidarity to protest the foulness of that shit because shit happens to good people. We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When I had to get on public assistance because I couldn’t find a job and my kids were failing in school because shelter life ain’t easy, you white motherfuckers stood in solidarity with me. You didn’t belittle me and call me a ‘freeloading, Cadillac driving welfare queen who couldn’t keep her legs closed.” You went to bat for me. You saw that I was just about broken and with your relentless reaching out on my behalf to city and state officials, I was able to pull myself up with the aid of the assistance that I had to take while trying to get back on my feet. You said, “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When the police brutally beat my teenage son, put him in a wheelchair simply because they could, you white motherfuckers stood in solidarity with me. You didn’t turn your back when you saw the beatings and heard of the outright murders that were perpetrated against other young Black men by racist ass cops. You stood in solidarity with me because you knew that shit was wrong. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When you white motherfuckers saw that my nieces and nephews were not getting a decent education and the new catch phrase became, “the school to prison pipeline,” you weren’t okay with that. You loudly voiced your disgust at what was purposely being done to Black communities all across this country. You stood in solidarity with me because you know that shit just ain’t right. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When you saw the incarceration statistics for young Black men caught up in the ‘for profit prison industrial complex’ over selling some dime bags of weed, you raised such a hue and cry, they let ‘em go. You stood in solidarity with me. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When you saw the national unemployment rate inch down and yet the unemployment rate for Black people remained in the double digits, you decried the foulness of that shit. You said, “goddamn it! Crime is high in the Black neighborhoods because unemployment is so goddamn high! Something needs to be done!” You stood in solidarity with me. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When you saw the abject poverty in Black communities all across this country, you…uh…never mind, you’re scared to come into the ‘hood’, but I am sure that you stood in solidarity with me. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

Now, let’s fast forward to 2008 when the economy was collapsing and people were losing their homes and the Wall Street criminals were bailed out and then we began to hear about the ‘middle class’ getting fucked up. I went to pick up the phone because you had stood in solidarity with me throughout all of my troubling times but when I tried to find a number to call in the ‘solidarity group’ that had stood beside me, there were only blank pages!

When did you stand in solidarity with me? When did you ever give a goddamn about the problems that have plagued Black communities and just why the fuck are there so many ‘Black’ communities and not just ‘communities’ if we stand in solidarity together? Surely, you live right beside me because we’ve been in this all along, haven’t we? We stood together, side by side against those who have been oppressing my ass all along. Uh…no, we haven’t stood together in solidarity because my problems were never made your problems until now and now, I’m to stand in solidarity with you? Hell if that’s so!

We’ve had our ass handed to us and then some and now you want me to stand in solidarity with you because you’re just now starting to feel the impact of some shit that’s been finally let loose on YOUR ass? Ain’t gonna happen! Over a million of our Black men are in prison. We are segregated just as we’ve always been. We’re still suffering from the effects of disenfranchisement, rampant unemployment, extreme poverty, drug addiction, racism, bigotry and hate, but now, you want some solidarity? Ha! That IS funny! You left me to make it or not on my own and that is exactly where YOU stand. Make it or get broken by it because it don’t hardly matter to me what happens to you! You’ll get from me as much ‘solidarity’ as you gave me, nada! I’ve figured out what I need to do and now it’s YOUR turn! Figure it out!

And now, we come to the latest victim of a police involved shooting, Justine Damond, who we all know was murdered by a cop who was spooked by a trash can lid hitting the ground or was he spooked by the sound of someone dropping a plate or by someone breaking wind or belching or sneezing, coughing or playing bongo drums in an upscale area of South Minneapolis?

All of a sudden, some white people are calling out Black Lives Matter and the NAACP for not coming to protest for Justine Damond. First of all, Black Lives Matter has been front and center in Minneapolis since this event went down and the NAACP has, as well. It is my opinion that neither group should stand up in protest over this police involved shooting because many whites have tried to get Black Lives Matter defined as a ‘hate group’. Apparently, stating that Black lives should matter is projecting hate towards others. Never mind the fact that the majority of police killings have directly impacted Black people for hundreds of years starting with the slave patrols. And if white America had ever stood up, en masse with us, would we still continue to see this play out in every city in every state in America in the year 2017? We know the answer to that!

Don’t sit on your pink ass now and point the finger at Black people and tell us that we should be standing in solidarity with you because of one incident that has happened to the likes of you. I feel nothing for your plight! Not a drop of sympathy do I have and there will be none. A gnat couldn’t wipe its ass on the amount of sympathy that I can drum up for you pink-assed motherfuckers. BULEEEDAT! So come on up in here and tell me that we are all in this shit together and like I always say, “I will be more than happy to mop the cyber floor with your pink ass!”

Black people have been saying for decades that police brutality is rampant; running unchecked in this hellhole and is even encouraged and we were paid no mind by the likes of you pink-assed motherfuckers who basically told us to “Fuck off!” And so now, I am telling you to do the same! “Fuck off!” Your ‘plight’ don’t hardly concern me. And you hypocritical shits have the nerve to now parade around with signs stating, “White People: Are You Awake Now?” Yeah!, You’re awake now, but only because Miss Upscale Neighborhood ‘pink-assed’ Goldilocks got herself shot to death by some Somali-American cop who was startled by her farting or belching near them. But so many Black men, women and children have been murdered by cops and you’ve not called for the heads of police departments on a platter, but now that Miss Australian Goldilocks has been murdered by cop, it is now time to fire the Minneapolis police chief, bring in a Black cop, who by the way, has experienced racism in the very department that he will now oversee, to the point whereas he had to file a lawsuit and received compensation. So that right there tells us just how far he will be allowed to go in attempting to reign in trigger happy cops or cops who are ‘spooked’ into killing people because of loud noises nearby. Seriously?!!!

We must all get out the purple crepe and black armbands and violins and take to the streets to protest over an ‘upper class immigrant from Australia getting herself murdered by those thugs in blue uniforms? Yeah! Right! Wait for me to don my marching shoes and dust off my lame ass, fifty year-old protest sign and git ta stepping and you will find yourselves turning just as blue as a cop’s uniform. Yeah! I’m going to git ta marching and shouting, “No justice! No peace!” for this here ‘white’ woman who chose to come on over here to America and live the good life until she got what millions of Black people have been getting for hundreds of years in AmeriKKKa! I am not even marching for Black people anymore and I’m damn sure as hell not marching for Miss Goldilocks. She’s got the Australian government fighting for justice for her. She’s got her Australian family to fight for justice for her and she’s got all the upper crust white folks in an uproar storming City Hall fighting for justice for her. But where were they at when Jamar Clark was shot dead by cops? Where were they when Philando Castile was shot dead by cop? They were certainly not storming the mayor’s office demanding that she resign just as she demanded the resignation of her police chief and received it, post haste.

You pink-assed motherfuckers will never understand that what comes around, goes around. It’s now come around to you. Deal with it or not! I don’t hardly fucking care! But you will not blame us or demand that we Black folks stand in solidarity with you simply because we have been protesting this very same shit for hundreds of years, ON OUR OWN, while you hypocrites simply sat back and watched it all go down knowing all the while that this vile shit was put in to play by those who are your own kin folks. Fuck you AND yours!

Race Relations Are Deteriorating


Nooooo! Say it ain’t so!

A majority of the nearly two dozen poll respondents reached by Reuters, including Cartagena, Mami and Dees, said they have recently sensed an unsettling rise in racial hostility – or at least a greater willingness by some Americans to express it.

It’s not just minorities who say they’re feeling unnerved. Dees, the painting contractor from Many, Louisiana, a town of about 2,700 people, said he sensed rising anger among black residents after Trump’s unexpected victory.

It did not take the election of Donald Trump to get me to speak out on race relations. I have been speaking on race relations for years. When you drag people from a continent, enslave them, supposedly ‘free’ them only to make sure that there is no way for them to compete on a level playing field for jobs, housing; the whole nine yards and you systematically incarcerate them by the millions, thus ensuring that this country will always have slave labor, what did you think was going to happen?

When nothing has been done to reign in hate groups by at least calling them ‘terror organizations’, what did you think was going to happen? When you display only racism, bigotry and prejudice to a group of people who are in AmeriKKKa through no fault of their own, did you think that they would grow to love their oppressors? Let me clear up one thing, white folks, the majority of us hate you with a passion that words cannot do justice to and each and every single day we long for your death and we hope that you die in the most horrible way possible. That’s the truth. As much as you hate us for being here thanks to your lazy ass ancestors who had no work ethic at all and hence, that is the reason we are here, your hatred for us pales in comparison to ours for you. Just because some coonhead sellouts will lie down with you, wed with you and give you accolades does not mean that the vast majority of us fall into that category. The vast majority of us despise and loathe you with every fiber of our being. Yeah! Let that sink in. Let it marinate because you see, we have been seething for over 400 years now and like a kettle that’s brought to boil, we’re likely to boil over like this dude did.

Fresno shooting rampage: Suspect who shot dead 3 wanted to kill as many [white] people as possible, police say.

Police said the man who killed three people on a shooting spree in downtown Fresno, California, on Tuesday while shouting “Allahu Akbar” wanted to kill as many [white] people as possible after a warrant was released for his arrest in the murder of a motel security guard last week.

Muhammad went by the nickname “Black Jesus” and has made posts against white people and the government on his Facebook page.

On what appeared to be Muhammad’s Facebook page, he repeatedly posted “#LetBlackPeopleGo” and encouraged “black warriors” to “mount up.” A flurry of posts emerged in the past day.

And another Black warrior did ‘mount up’ and shot dead 5 KKKops in Dallas, TX.

DALLAS — The heavily armed sniper who gunned down police officers in downtown Dallas, leaving five of them dead, specifically set out to kill as many white officers as he could, officials said Friday. He was a military veteran who had served in Afghanistan, and he kept an arsenal in his home that included bomb-making materials.

Sound familiar? You bet it does! What is with these Black men who set out to kill ‘white’ people and only ‘white’ people? What could they possibly have against those who constantly speak of freedom, rights, justice and humanitarianism? White folks, shut the fuck up because you are the worst hypocrites slithering and crawling across this planet spreading your vileness and your atrocities with relish. You have managed to fuck up an entire planet and yet, you think your shit don’t stink and that it’s such an atrocity when someone turns around and does to you what you are doing to an entire planet. Keep sitting back and thinking that the chickens are not going to come home to roost all up your depraved asses. What you have read here is only the beginning because believe me, people with nothing left to lose are some dangerous motherfuckers and you have made sure that millions of people have nothing left to lose while you sit back and pour salt into the wounds of those you have enslaved, made poverty stricken and homeless but who are here through no fault of their own. What god you lay claim to is no god because you’ve made yourselves, god and you use a non-existent god to keep every other group pliable to what you’re doing to them. On some of us, it is no longer working and this is fast catching on.

You can no longer lull us into believing in your fictional lord and savior because how in the world is the likes of you heading to some paradise after you croak what with all that foul shit smeared on your funky asses for all the world to see? There ain’t enough prayers or psalms in the Bible to get you through even your fake ass pearly gates because the evil that is you would have long since singed any precious metal or glow right off a pearl and off of anything else you’ve managed to vomit up. Death is finally stalking your ass and you don’t know when it’s coming, but it’s coming. So, go right ahead and continue wreaking havoc across this shithole and the world and what you give is most definitely what you are going to receive! It’s going to be the gift that keeps on giving. And just so you don’t forget, re-read these block quoted words. And just keep in mind that “rising anger among black residents!”

Dees, the painting contractor from Many, Louisiana, a town of about 2,700 people, said he sensed rising anger among black residents after Trump’s unexpected victory.

A “rising anger” indeed! Yeah! We’re goddamn tired of printing signs and wearing out the soles of our shoes waiting on you to get something you’ve never had and never will get; a heart, compassion, empathy, sensitivity, thoughtfulness, humanity, love and mercy. Not one of those words is synonymous with ‘whites’. ‘Christian love and charity’, my goddamn ass! You don’t even believe your own lies. So why should we?  But it’s quite obvious that we’re not standing for your shit anymore! This is war! Ain’t no goddamn peace! You’ve seen to that!

Bomb This Hellhole To Bits!

Not one American was gassed
And so America bombed Syria because..
 Well, these things just should not be done.
After all, there are international laws.

What applies to America is unique.
There are none so exceptional as we
who were not gassed by no terrorists we trained,
but we still bombed a foreign country.

Some things just make no sense at all.
America refused Syria’s refugees
who were escaping a war torn land
brought on by our own tragedies.

Now let’s turn this all around.
Did America not gas the Iraqis?
And it was okay when we gassed the Vietnamese
and then say, “We are better than the Nazis.”

Tell that to the dead Vietnamese.
 Or have you forgotten all about Napalm?
Our selective amnesia is telling
when we can forget about a Napalm bomb.

White phosphorous, the Iraqis will never forget.
How can they when we are still there?
We bombed them over a big ass lie
since those WMDs are where?

Hiroshima and Nagasaki were cities
bombed by the US of A.
How many people did we kill?
And we still think that was okay!

We are all American dogs
who drool and piss and shit
on a planet of people at will
and we all deserve a direct hit!

So China, Iran and North Korea,
Russia and even Bangladesh
bomb this hellhole to bits!
Maybe this world can then start, afresh!

Unfortunately, I shall not get my wish that Russia, Iran, North Korea and China will blow this hellhole to kingdom come, but I can still keep hope alive.

So, Donald Trump has initiated what amounts to déjà vu because didn’t we go over this already about Assad using sarin gas during Obama’s reign? And what happened? It was found that the Assad government did not gas their own people, the rebels that America’s CIA trained did that, but even so, Russia stepped in and helped to broker a deal that relieved the Assad government of any chemical weapons it may have had and yet, here we are again. Donald Trump is just so disturbed at the thought of little children getting gassed that he just could not contain himself and so sent 59 missiles to do what? Kill more innocent little children? Because that is what happened, isn’t it? Civilians were killed by those U.S. missiles and so where is the outrage from Trump about that?

That no good bastard is not even outraged that the U. S. Department of Justice issued a scathing report on Baltimore’s police force due to the fact of rampant and systemic excessive use of force and police brutality against a majority Black city. In fact, Attorney General, Jeff Sessions stated that, “the consent decree would keep the KKKops from doing their job of continuing to brutalize, racial profile and fuck up Black folks on a regular basis just ’cause they should!”

And here we have all these pasty-faced motherfuckers just declaring how horrid it is for Assad to gas his own people when these same pasty-faced assholes would rather see me dead just because my skin tone is dark. Don’t that fucking beat all? Talk about this shithole drowning in hypocrisy, America is the very definition of hypocrisy from one end of this cesspool of corruption to the other. And here we sit, biting our nails and hoping there’s to be no draft. My post titled, “The Draft Is Being Reinstituted On January 1st, 2016! is the number one post because you scared ass pieces of whiny assed exceptionally brain dead cretins are shaking in your cowboy boots and wife beaters over the possibility of you having to get up off your fat ass and get it handed to you by the Russians and the Chinese. You don’t have to worry about being drafted because you’re fucking useless, what with a needle stuck in your damn arm loaded with heroin and who knows what the hell else. Your fat ass can’t even fit in the cockpit of a fighter jet because you’re too damn lazy to even get up off the couch and turn the channel on the TV. The only thing you’re good for is nothing! Ain’t no use for you whatsoever. So quite actually, if a bomb was to land squarely in your fucking living room, it’d be doing you a favor by sending you to meet your fairytale maker sitting up in the sky waiting to receive your worthless ass, or so says your slimy piece of shit reverend; the snake oil selling bastard! Yeah, a bomb would quite actually be good for you because it’d put you out of your sorry ass misery. I wish they would send a bomb up the ass of every single piece of American filth and think I don’t mean that, you sorry ass filthy fuckers!
