A Rage So Cold, Yet Hot!

rage

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Unfortunately, to be continued……..

“There She Is, Miss Alabama, Now Fire Her!”

former Miss Alabama

 

 

And another Black woman’s career bites the dust because she had the audacity to state that the so-called ‘Dallas Sniper’, Micah Xavier Johnson, was a ‘martyr’.

Former Miss Alabama Suspended From TV Gig for Calling Dallas Sniper a ‘Martyr’

“I’m dealing with a bit of guilt, because I don’t feel sad for the officers that lost their lives — and I know that that’s really not my heart,” James began. “I value human life and I want to feel sad for them, but I can’t help but feeling like the shooter was a martyr — and I know it’s not the right way to feel because nobody deserves to lose their lives, and I know that those police officers had families and people who loved them.”

“I’m so torn up in my heart about seeing these … black men being gunned down in my community that I can’t help but feel like I wasn’t surprised what the shooter did to those cops,” she added. “And I think a lot of us feel the same way.”

I feel the same way! So, boss, can I have my pink slip now? Oh damn! That’s right! I am the boss and so I would have to fire myself! Oops! I guess I can get away with speaking MY own mind. Sorry Ms. Alabama! Next time, work two jobs like I did, save your money, secretly record your bosses, make extra tapes and then send them to corporate headquarters, stating that several tapes have also gone out to different independent news agencies. You will  then be your own boss in no time flat! I guarantee it!

Black folks, are you taking note? Miss Alabama was fired because she can identify with those who look like her getting themselves murdered by racist KKKops and not appreciating it. What she can also appreciate is the fact that she cannot bring herself to go into a decline because it has been alleged that a Black man went the fuck off in Dallas, TX for the very same reasons that upset Ms. Alabama, only he is alleged to have taken his rage a step further and wacked a few KKKops in retaliation for KKKops murdering innocent Black men like Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

So, don’t you dare go to work tomorrow and show your ‘solidarity’ with those who look like you and who were gunned down in what amounts to ‘cold blood’ since that has been defined as, ‘innocent’. You best confess that you are highly likely to become prostrate with grief and then get to moaning and some mo shit and claim that it is just so terribly, terribly frustrating to you that those nice, kind and considerate KKKops who murdered Alton Sterling and Philando Castile are receiving only negativity from the Black community. You cannot understand why Black people would be upset over KKKop killings of other Black people. You should then tell your boss that you need some time off so that you can have some t-shirts printed that read, “KKKop, Shoot Me Now And Get It Over With, I Don’t Deserve To Live!” This should go on the front and on the back, a shriveled, limp, pink dick with a caption underneath it saying, “My Death Makes KKKops Cum!”

Ms. Alabama, in the above picture, is understandably broken up, just as millions of Black people in AmeriKKKa, are broken up over the continued senseless murder of us at the hands of racist KKKops. And with the history of this shithole being what it is, we have more than enough of a right to state how we feel. But you see, if we don’t feel what ‘white’ folks think we should feel, then we cannot express those feelings without retaliation. And since most of us work for them, live in their apartment buildings and must interact with them on a daily basis, why, we must forever remain silent with regards to our true feelings and, instead, opt to be ‘politically correct’ and in this case, political correctness dictates that we shed copious tears for those KKKops that got wacked in Dallas, TX while remaining stony-faced over the police killings of those who look like us. Since when did we as Black people obtain the freedom to ‘feel’? We are not ‘human’, don’t you know? What ‘white’ person gave us the right to express our true feelings? We are still on the plantation and we had better recognize that we never got off it. Your chain length is but so long and if you by some chance, break that chain and go further than they intend that you should go, well now, they have the means to fuck your day up, AND how! So, don’t get any fancy ideas that you’ve got freedom and rights because the only freedom you’ve got is the freedom to head straight inside a ‘for-profit’ prison, other than that, dead, is your means to freedom. Aren’t we the lucky ones?
