“Freedom Rider: Gay Still Isn’t the New Black”

black is the new black

 

 

If “gay is the new Black,” then it would follow that gays would now be dedicating their collective lives to the struggle against mass Black incarceration, gentrification, austerity, war and capitalist predation. Don’t hold your breath. “Fighting these issues means taking on the ever present elephant in the room, the persistent belief in Manifest Destiny and the right of white Americans to control whatever and whomever they want.”

There is nothing amusing about the expression “gay is the new black.” In essence it means that any concerns about the persistent violation of black Americans’ citizenship rights are supplanted in favor of another group. Very powerful people made marriage equality a reality but they show no inclination to eradicate inequality of any other kind.

The Supreme Court decision took place on the same day president Obama eulogized State Senator Clementa Pinckney, a victim of the Charleston, South Carolina church massacre. Even as the world mourned a victim of American race prejudice the president felt compelled to speak of Confederate “valor” during the Civil War. While infuriating, his words weren’t at all surprising. His ability to make white people feel comfortable is in large part responsible for his rise to the presidency.

While gay rights are on the rise, black rights still languish. The president lit the White House in the rainbow colors that symbolize gay pride while giving only the most cursory attention to black lives. None of the killer cops or vigilantes who have stolen black lives have been prosecuted by the Obama Justice Department. Waving a rainbow flag is much easier.

Black people have struggled mightily to win some measure of justice. Any future advancements require an acknowledgement that the system we live under is incapable of protecting our rights. If few others are radical then we must certainly be. The path to gay rights victories will not work for black people. It won’t work to end wars, austerity or capitalist predation. Those fights will require a bigger and much more fundamental struggle over the very foundations of this society.” -continue reading here:http://www.blackagendareport.com/freedom_rider_gay_isnt_new_black

Margaret Kimberley’s Freedom Rider column appears weekly in BAR, and is widely reprinted elsewhere. She maintains a frequently updated blog as well as at http://freedomrider.blogspot.com. Ms. Kimberley lives in New York City, and can be reached via e-Mail at Margaret.Kimberley(at)BlackAgendaReport.com.

 And as many times as my reader has been inundated with articles from Black Agenda Report, this one hasn’t managed to surface, not even with  Ms. Kimberley in agreement with the Supreme Court’s decision and over this, I will strongly disagree with Ms. Kimberley. However, she makes many serious and valid points on which she’ll get no argument from me, especially on the point, “While gay rights are on the rise, black rights still languish.” And they will continue because the very foundation upon which this shithole was built, was on racial inequality and it is so very easy to overlook a perversion and grant that as an accepted right, but since this shithole continues to make money off the many Black people it incarcerates, steals outright from in the form of payday loans and furniture rental stores, continues to thrive off making Black people have no choice but to enlist in the army of the warmongers, what has changed? Oh, that’s right! Gays are now ‘free’ to marry while Black people are choked for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes, are getting murdered by white supremacists, are having their churches burned down by white supremacists. Where are the  now ‘free’ to marry gays that have declared that their fight for rights is likened to the Black struggle for rights? My bad! Just as soon as they finish tying the knot, they’ll eventually get around to remembering that Black people are still struggling for the ‘right’ to live. Meanwhile, I won’t hold my breath.

I Miss The Days When Men Were Men

Nasty motherfuckers!
Nasty motherfuckers!

I miss the days when men were men
but the tables have been turned.
A man is now so feminine,
he wants a bra some woman burned.

Feminine is now quite masculine.
What a topsy-turvy world.
Just thinking of this perversion
only makes me want to hurl.

The claim is that they fought
for civil rights for gays.
And that Blacks should be quite happy
giving the high court’s ruling, praise.

Not so fast, this shit ain’t cute.
Being gay is an orientation.
It is not a civil right
to display your aberration.

What sex act you perform
should not be granted such distinction.
Nor be held up as a victory.
It only leads to man’s extinction.

You cannot procreate your seed
when it’s shoved inside a man.
Nor can a woman bear a child
by engaging in sex with Ann.

You’re on the road to hell,
you deviant queers and freaks.
And as you head for wedded blitz
know that your ass of sulfur reeks.

You nasty gay Black motherfuckers, what the hell is wrong with you? The Black man used to be a MAN and not a goddamn pussy. I understand the white man’s agenda is to emasculate you, but why do you buy into that shit? You did not come from wimps. Back in my heyday, this was not a goddamn epidemic. Black men were MEN. They weren’t the punk ass bitches that are crawling and slithering around emulating the white ‘man’s’ ways. Yeah, whites have always been on some perverted shit, but that wasn’t us. We did not assimilate as easily as you motherfuckers of today allow yourselves to be and quite obviously, having no problem doing so.

And Black lesbians, you are just as bad. You weren’t into pussy licking and you fucking know that. Now, everywhere I turn, you’re somewhere proclaiming your gayness and talking about rights. This gay shit has nothing whatsoever to do with the rights that Black people have been fighting for, for over 50 years in this hellhole. You are no sista of mine as I denounce the vile ass shit you do and don’t think for a minute that I am buying this fake ass shit that you are selling. You are not denied a goddamn thing because of your sexual preference. You have just joined in with the whites that have been proclaiming this to be a fight for civil rights when it is not about civil rights, it is about the fact of making perversion, legal.

So, all you motherfuckers out there that’s got a problem with pedophilia, get the fuck over it because now that Pandora’s Box has been opened, now that this can of worms has been opened, expect for every deviant piece of filth to crawl out of it and declare that it is a right to engage in sex acts with minors; that is a right to wed children, 9 years of age. What’s to stop this? Not a goddamn thing! Because if your perversion has been ruled, a protected right, then so must the perversion of a Catholic Priest. Why deny the Catholic Priests, their young boys to sodomize? It’s only a sex act and therefore, protected by the Supreme Court’s ruling. Next, the Catholic Priests should be requesting that they be allowed to marry the young boys that they sodomize. Ain’t a goddamn thing wrong with that because it’s ALL about sexual orientation and if a motherfucker is oriented in that way, then what’s the goddamn problem? There is none because perversion has been defined as a right. So, everybody is happy. Dude wants to marry his favorite sheep? Great! Let him! That is his sexual orientation and it is a protected right. Prepare the church for this dude and his new bride, the sheep’s, wedding. A woman wants to marry her dog? Fine! Prepare the church for her wedding with Fido! Let’s ALL have our sexual perversions, I mean…orientation declared, legal, enter into a contract, walk down the aisle and live happily ever after.

All Hail, The Mighty Supremes!

supreme court justices

 

 

The Supreme Court has blocked Obama administration rules designed to sharply limit the hazardous air pollutants that spew from the nation’s power plants.

The justices by a 5-4 vote agreed with the coal industry and Republican-led states that said the forced cutbacks were too costly and could lead to power outages.

Justice Antonin Scalia, speaking for the majority, said it was not reasonable for the Environmental Protection Agency to proceed with the new rules without weighing their cost, estimated to be about $9.6 billion a year.

 

So, let me get this straight, we can only have clean air, water and food if it is cost-effective to do so and if it is not cost-effective, then to hell with clean air, water and food. We are certainly in good hands thanks to those ever so environmental-friendly Supreme Court justices. The planet which sustains life is being destroyed as are we because it is not cost-effective to reduce the pollution that is killing the planet and all living things on it. This leads me to ask a question. When will someone figure out that the Supreme Court justices should be locked up in a psychiatric hospital? I ask this because it is extremely clear to me that they are insane and what is equally clear is that they are receiving bribes and kickbacks from the coal industry and every other polluting industry and that this in turn has rendered the Environmental Protection Agency, impotent. There is to be no protection of the environment because to hell with the environment, only bulging pockets should be protected. I suppose the Supreme Court justices all live in a bubble and do not breathe the same air that we do, they must not eat the same foods that we do, nor drink the same water that we do since it is quite apparent, that they are not at all concerned about what goes in their pie hole and up their goddamn nose. Let us all celebrate our imminent demise.

 

And speaking of imminent demise, the Supreme Court also decided that those who are on death row can just writhe in agony as they are put to death thanks to their support of a drug that has been known to have no efficacy in controlling pain during surgery and cannot be used, but this drug is acceptable to be used on those who are cooling their heels on death row when the time comes for them to be put to death because killing people always solves everything. It brings ‘closure’ to the victim’s family, I suppose. There is no ‘closure’ more final than death, but to take a life for a life could never make it right. State-sanctioned killing should be as unacceptable just as if I walked up and killed my neighbor.

The conservative majority ruled that to prohibit the use of midazolam, a sedative that has left some death row prisoners seemingly able to feel pain from the next two drugs in a three-drug cocktail, would have unfairly tied the states’ hands.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote the 5-4 decision for the argumentative court. All four liberal justices dissented vehemently; two said capital punishment is probably unconstitutional and urged the court to consider a broad challenge in the future.

WOW! Two Supreme Court justices stated that ‘capital punishment is probably unconstitutional’ but the law of the land still calls for capital punishment by means of a drug that doesn’t even work. The Supreme Court is on a roll, indeed.

And so we come to the greatest ruling of all, same-sex marriage; now the law of the land. Get out the banners, march in the parades and line up at city hall or whatever church will have you and join in ‘wholly’ matrimony. Those of you who are celebrating same-sex marriage, don’t breathe too heavily a sigh of relief because the air is filled with toxins, thanks in part to those same Supreme Court justices that granted you the right to marry also deemed it too expensive to keep you healthy, while allowing death row inmates to writhe in agony. Enjoy your time with each other while you can for death creeps ever closer and if by some chance, your love fades for your lover, try to desist from killing him/her, especially in a state that still allows for the death penalty because again, the same Supreme Court justices that granted you permission to marry also maintains that there does not have to be put in place, a way to send you off to your reward, humanely.

Rainbows, Once So Beautiful!

rainbow1

Rainbows, once so beautiful
are now defiled by man.
When I look up at a rainbow
it is as beautiful as a rusted can.

If a man wants a dick all in his ass
then go at it tooth and nail
but did you have to defile such beauty
as you lick the ass of a male?

The dykes are on the loose
chasing rainbow-draped cunts.
With tongues drooling and panting
I don’t want to hear your grunts.

You tarnish the rainbow’s image
with your filthy, nasty ways.
I wish you’d all stayed in the closet,
all you vile and disgusting gays!

And for some strange reason, I had the devil of a time posting this. I fucking wonder why! If I had posted a poem screaming about my joy over same-sex marriage, this would be Freshly Pressed, but since I’m not, it was made extremely difficult for me to post this. But know this, I am stubborn as hell and have saved every goddamn thing that I have posted on this site and though I had to make four attempts to post this, I got it done, goddamn it!

I’m not the nasty motherfucker here! Those damn gays are. I fucking had a colonoscopy and was told that I would be asleep and yet, I screamed throughout the entire procedure. You gay motherfuckers wouldn’t have had THAT problem because you’re SO goddamn used to shit shoved up your ass. By the time you filthy ass skanks need a colonoscopy, all the doctor need do is attach a flashlight to his head and stick his whole goddamn head in your wide open ass hole that’s already heavily lubed. Hell! Jiffy Lube’s got nothing on you motherfuckers! The colonoscopy would be finished in two seconds flat because the doc could see from your asshole all the way to your molars because you’d be screaming with PLEASURE, you nasty ass fuckers!
