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!

 

Trump Is Obama’s Legacy!

trump-and-obama

 

 

Decades from now, Obama will be thought of as the president that ushered in Donald Trump. Forget about the ‘first Black president’. Forget about Obamacare. And there really isn’t anything else of note to even bother mentioning, is there?

In January, Obama will hand over the reigns to Donald “You’re Fired” Trump! And basically, that is what the American people told the democrats. “You’re fired!” For many, many years, the democrats, Obama included, took the Black vote for granted. They took the ‘poor’ vote for granted. It mattered not if the poor were Black or white, their vote was taken for granted because the democrats ignored their constituents until it was time to keep a senate seat or a house seat or keep the presidency under democrat control. The democrats spouted the same old tired ass rhetoric, decade after decade and they weren’t really listening to it anymore because it was all recycled garbage; the same message that they’d always used and it did work for a long time. But now, the fat lady has sung for the democrats and for Obama’s legacy.

I will not remember Obama as the first ‘Black’ president since I cannot name a single thing his Administration has done to improve the lives of Black Americans. I cannot think of a single stroke of his executive pen that improved the lives of Black Americans. From day one, that Kenyan born asswipe turned his back on the very people who overwhelmingly voted for him. He turned his back on people who he knew voted for him in the hopes that he would recognize what we all know and do something about helping us take down a deck that has been stacked against us since our ancestors were dragged here. Even though we knew that he was born of a man from Kenya and a white mother, we knew that he had a Black wife and together they produced Black children. We thought that he would look into his wife’s eyes and into the eyes of his daughters and see our daughters, our sons but he did not. He feathered his nest and that of his family’s and left the rest of us to make it as best we could with odds so stacked against us that no bookie would even take the bet.

He promised transparency in government and then turned right around and held secret meetings with insurance companies when putting together the details of Obamacare. He promised us a single payer health care system and we got skyrocketing premiums and little options and now companies are bailing on Obamacare, left and right. He promised jobs and then turned around and held secret meetings over the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement(TPP) that would have strengthened corporate strongholds over entire nations with the ability to bankrupt them and take their natural resources, impoverishing the nation’s people.

Obama said he was “opposed to dumb wars” and yet, US troops are in Afghanistan to this day, protecting poppy plants that when harvested are given a free flight straight to the U.S. and into the veins of addicts in every city in America. Iraq is still seeing heavy fighting between U.S. trained insurgents and ‘the other guy’. Libya, which was not a hotbed for terrorist activities is off the chain thanks to policies put into play by the Obama Administration and with loving approval of his former Secretary of State Hillary “We came! We Saw! He died!” Clinton when speaking of the murder of Libya’s former leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. That warpig, Hillary Clinton guffawed over the senseless and needless murder of Gaddafi and with all else that was attached to her filthy ass, she actually thought that Americans wanted any more to do with her or with the Administration she was attached to? We showed you!

Obama did nothing; not one damn thing about the school-to-prison pipeline unless you think ignoring it is doing something about it. Inner city children are kept ignorant, on purpose because they are being groomed to feed the ‘for profit’ prison slavery system. Our children lag behind children in most other developed nations in just about every subject, especially math and science. Many cannot even find other countries on a map. There are so many who cannot even read, the calls for tutors and mentors are ear piercing. Is this another Obama’s legacy? Indeed, it is and not a proud one; not at all.

Barack Obama did more for gays than for any other group. Lit the White House up in rainbow colors when the Supreme Court approved gay marriage. Was the White House lit up in somber colors when twelve-year old Tamir Rice was gunned down two seconds after cops showed up at the park where he was playing? Was the White House lit up in somber colors after Trayvon Martin was executed by a racist who is still walking around grinning and having a good time after killing that child? Did Obama light up the White House in somber colors after Sandra Bland was found mysteriously hanged in a Texas jail cell after having been arrested for failing to make a proper turn signal? Was the White House lit up in somber colors when Freddie Gray breathed his last after having been arrested for doing nothing wrong and in the process had his neck mysteriously broken while being carted to jail in the back of a police van? No! No! No! No! No and NO!

And yet, the Obama justice Department by way of his next favorite coonhead Loretta Lynch is suing the state of North Carolina because North Carolina does not think that men who have ‘transgendered’ should be able to enter restrooms that are designated for females. Black people have been systematically butchered by racist cops and there was no reason in the world to make a stink over that, but along comes a transgender bathroom sign and it is time to get the justice department to sue over it. But to hell with ‘murder by cop’ of unarmed Black men, women and children. Does that give you a clue as to what Obama thinks of you, Black man, woman and child?

Not one asshole on Wall Street saw the inside of a prison cell for bringing entire economies to their knees thereby causing a Depression and yet then Obama Administration’s Justice Department head, Eric Holder stated that, “Bankers were too important to jail!” even though they had engaged in fraud, money laundering and other nefarious deeds, they were indeed, too important to jail. And yet, over two million Black men and women are sitting in prison for being caught with a plant(weed). Is this also part of Obama’s legacy? You goddamn right it is!

This so-called ‘first Black’ president has nothing to show for his presidency but Donald Trump and mass protests in the streets. And before that, there were mass protests in the streets over the murder of Black citizens by racist cops. Is that also an Obama legacy? You bet. Is that something to be proud of? Hell no! But he must own it because it is surely his to own.

History will indeed, remember Barack Obama and we shall as well and when history ‘whitewashes’ everything as it inevitably does, we will tell the truth. We will make sure that our children know why a racist bigot succeeded the so-called ‘first Black’ president. We will tell our children how we were lied to, ignored and thrown underneath the bus, time and time again and still many in Black communities all across this country, looked up to him. I certainly hope that they learned their lesson. Never make more of a man than he is for when all is said and done, he is still just a man and some are even less of a man than others. Obama is the lesser man and that is why his legacy to end all legacies is Donald J. Trump!

When You Get Goddamn Tired…..!

break the chains

When you get tired of dying before your eighteenth birthday
 and when you’re tired of hearing that you’re worthless anyway,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the fire in your soul
 will burn through your body that is four hundred years old.

When you get tired of police brutality and the injustice of gentrification,
 and when you get tired of the school-to-prison pipeline of no education,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the marching on tired feet
 will not be enough to quench the thirst for liberation and you won’t accept defeat.

When you get tired of the National Guard getting called out to stop you
 and when they fire the shots at your tired, worn-out body, though that’s nothing new,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you must heed the words of Malcolm X.
For no man can continue to surrender to ropes tightened around innocent necks.

And when you get tired of mass incarceration because of the color of your skin
 and when the cops are on your ass from sun up to sun down, yet again,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you will listen to the anger in your heart.
For no Black man, woman or child can resist the revolution and you must take part.

And when the smoke has cleared and so many lie dead or wounded from the fight
 and when you think that what you did was all for nothing and that good is never right,
 that protest sign that you put down, shove it up the white man’s ass and turn around
And torch everything in sight; every white man’s asset, burn it to the ground!

When you get tired, my Black brothers and sisters, you will realize that protest signs, marches and hands raised in the air is not enough. When you get tired of hearing that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is to be revered for his non-violent stance of supplicating himself to his enemy and encouraged you to do likewise, you will then realize your only course of action and you will take it. The white man knows this and that is why he is hell-bent on incarcerating you off the streets; that is why he is hell-bent on donning that blue or brown uniform, once he sheds his white sheet, and commences to riddle you with hundreds of bullets. He knows what’s coming. You don’t. Not yet. But you will. Yes, that’s right. He already knows what his fate is and who is going to seal it, but you don’t. Not yet. But you will. And when you do, it is game over for him and he knows that!

I don’t even call it violence when it’s in self defense; I call it intelligence. –

Shots Ring Out Every Single Night!

Michah Johnson

Shots ring out every single night.
People stand on the corner and scream and shout.
Torn protest signs litter the streets.
And no one seems to know what it’s all about.

A young man in Baton Rouge was shot and killed.
Another young man in St. Anthony, the same.
In Ferguson, MO, blood flows down the street.
And at the heart of it all is a KKKop’s killing game.

In a Wal-Mart store, a man held a toy gun,
he is dead too and the killing didn’t stop.
A young boy played in a Cleveland park
and the next sound he heard was a gun going, “POP!”

A young woman went to Texas to start a new job,
she made a wrong turn with her signal light.
And now she is dead, found hanged in a cell
all because her color was Black and not white.

I tell myself that any killing is wrong,
but when I heard about the shooting in a Texas town,
I never even flinched nor did I say one word.
I simply poured a flute of champagne and I chugged it down!

Call me insensitive or call me what you want,
but I will not lend myself to hypocrisy
because in my heart of hearts, I don’t care for KKKops,
when those they kill by the thousands, look like me!

The Dallas gunman claimed white police officers were conducting “genocide” against black people before he launched his attack, a friend told the Telegraph.

A week before Micah Johnson, 25, targeted police in Dallas the normally “chill” military veteran became upset, the friend said.

Israel Cooper, 19, said: “He was upset. He said white cops are just slaying black people, basically genocide. He said, “this is getting out of hand’.”

“Getting out of hand,” is right! And for people who say that this is the beginning of  a race war, tell me when have white people not been at war against America’s most unwilling ‘citizens’; descendants of slaves? You forget yourself and since you do, might I remind you why Black people are here? You mean, you don’t know? We are here thanks to your ancestors and here you are, taking up where your ancestors left off and you expect us to love you? Get real!

You can call this a ‘race war’ if you like and you can denounce us from here to hell, but the reality is, you put this shit in motion and now you want us to wring our hands and gnash our teeth because some racist KKKops got wacked by a man who was sick and tired of reading endless reports of racists gunning down innocent Black people? You can wag your finger over this until it falls off, I don’t give a good goddamn because tonight, I am celebrating AGAIN! That’s right! The only “POPPING” I am going to hear is the popping of another champagne cork!

“Cheers!”

And in the words of Tupac, “I was given this world, I didn’t make it.” And we ALL know who made this world the way it is now. So, you own up to what you set in motion. You goddamn right, I’m gonna celebrate! Eight 0 clock sharp and that’s central daylight savings time, “POP” goes the goddamn cork, motherfuckers!

And as for the KKKops out there! You sons-of-bitches ain’t even good enough to suck on the cork AFTER I trash it, you worthless racist bastards! Grieve with you? Nothing fucking doing!

Now Repeat After Me! “Black Lives Matter!” Once Again, “Black Lives Matter!” Now, Get Real!

black lives matter

Black lives matter!
Keep telling yourself that lie
and that it’s just a matter of time
 before you get your piece of the pie.

Black lives matter!
 Blacks are why the morgues are full.
 and why the jails are overcrowded.
That Black lives matter shit is bull!

Black lives matter!
It’s why you’re holding up a sign
because Freddie Gray is dead.
They broke that Black man’s spine.

Black lives matter!
This is what you must make known.
You want them to understand
that you can’t help your Black skin tone.

Black lives matter!
But how can you be so sure?
 It would seem that Black must be a disease.
And that death is the only cure.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

Over 2.3 million men in America are in prison — about half for drug crimes. Seventy percent of all men imprisoned are black or Hispanic. Thirty years ago, before the “War on Drugs” was implemented, there were only 300,000 people in the American prison system.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

Homelessness has become an especially serious problem in the African-American community, with Blacks making up half of the nation’s homeless community, according to a report by the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, African-Americans disproportionately represent 47 percent of homeless people, although they make up only 12 percent of the general population.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

You really can get pulled over for driving while black, federal statistics show

A black driver is about 31 percent more likely to be pulled over than a white driver, or about 23 percent more likely than a Hispanic driver. “Driving while black” is, indeed, a measurable phenomenon.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

The ACLU is committed to challenging the “school-to-prison pipeline,” a disturbing national trend wherein children are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Many of these children have learning disabilities or histories of poverty, abuse, or neglect, and would benefit from additional educational and counseling services. Instead, they are isolated, punished, and pushed out.

“Zero-tolerance” policies criminalize minor infractions of school rules, while cops in schools lead to students being criminalized for behavior that should be handled inside the school. Students of color are especially vulnerable to push-out trends and the discriminatory application of discipline.

So, as you can clearly see, Black lives matter! BLACK LIVES MATTER, keep up the good work, #Blacklivesmatter! Because whatever you’re doing, it is crystal clear that it IS working! Hell! Where do I sign up????!!!!!

Now, here is another reason to join #BLACKLIVESMATTER!

Minn. cop fatally shoots black man during traffic stop, aftermath broadcast on Facebook

A Minnesota traffic stop turned deadly Wednesday evening when a police officer opened fire on a black driver and killed him — less than 48 hours after another fatal police shooting in Louisiana.

Philando Castile, 32, died at a Minneapolis hospital.

Word is that he died because of a broken taillight, but the reality is he died because BLACKLIVESMATTER at the morgue! Just ask the coroner in every shitty ass city in this shithole!

Philando Castile is dead, not because his vehicle’s taillight was out, Philando Castile is dead because he was “driving while Black” and that is against the law as is every goddamn thing a Black person does in bloody ass racist AmeriKKKa!

Once AGAIN!, for the motherfuckers that are slow or otherwise, dumb as all hell, Black folks would not be in AmeriKKKa if your ancestors hadn’t been some lazy ass motherfuckers who had NO goddamn work ethic whatsoever who produced the very same in you because if you were any different from your slave owning ancestors, would we continue to see this shit play out? Yeah! Look in the mirror and answer that question! I dare you!

And just how many of us Black folks were out looking at fireworks on the 4th of July? Raise your hands. My hand is raised because that is exactly what the fuck I was doing. Was I standing in the middle of the street with my lame ass, dusty ass, fifty year old protest sign just getting arrested and some mo shit for blocking traffic every single damn time bail is posted? Fuck no! I was too busy enjoying the fireworks and when I’m not enjoying the fireworks, I’m out pumping gas into my car and aiding and abetting oil wars in the Middle East. I am sitting up in a movie theater watching “Independence Day Part 62” and some more shit! I am out there doing my part to make sure that I am part of the problem, not part of the solution.

I refuse to get up off my ass and fuck shit up! I refuse to even attempt to make a difference in the lives of those who look like me that’s getting planted, daily! I refuse to do anything but pen some goddamn kindergarten poetry and then I get up and out the door to pursue my pleasure, I go.  I am out shopping for clothes for road trips and shit! I am cussing and carrying on when someone parks their vehicle too close to mine but do I cuss and carry on out in the middle of the street over KKKop killings of those who look like me? Fuck no! I am apathetic and complacent over THAT shit! What’s that got to do with me? I ain’t been pulled over. Not yet! But I sure as hell expect someone to moan and wring their hands and gnash their teeth when I get pulled over and shot for having a broken taillight, but quite actually, I would have gotten pulled over for “driving while Black!”

Goddamn it! Ain’t we just having fun? Poor, poor Alton Sterling, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. And poor, poor Philando Castile, same goes for him; wrong place, wrong time. And Freddie Gray? Same thing! Sandra Bland? Yep! Tamir Rice? Indeed! We had ALL better hope that we ain’t never at the wrong place at the wrong time, ’cause the party WILL be over! No fireworks, no movies, no shopping, no  champagne brunches; none of that shit! Yeah! Life is good, ’til it ain’t! 

Black History

Black History Month

Dragged from your native land,
on a floating barge of death;
you built paradise for a thief
who then plundered all the wealth.

Your name was not your own.
You would never again be free.
To know such hate from them,
as they hang you from a tree.

They say that slavery’s over.
Go forth and earn your keep.
And though you labor long,
you’re valued much too cheap.

You were denied so many rights.
And the vote was not for you.
Though many marched and died,
the court bid that adieu.

Some think you’ve made great strides
in the face of all that’s wrong.
Yet they herd you into prison,
because they hate that you are strong.

Be wary of their smiles,
for they mean you so much harm.
If you’ve a talent, they’ll exploit it.
All over you, they’ll swarm.

They’ll use you and then kill you.
You’re nothing but a thing,
and when your candle’s burned
you’ll feel ole Massa’s sting.

Don’t ever let your guard down,
and it doesn’t pay to trust.
Shield from them any weakness.
Always show them your disgust.

Black history holds no fame.
And it certainly gets no cheer.
Times have never changed.
They still look at you and jeer!

Although this one is pretty much self-explanatory, I will just add that though there are a few, and I do mean few stories about progress that some Negroes have made, the fact remains that this is no time to be celebrating because the majority of us are fucked up and just a glance around will make that fact, quite obvious.

I was pretty much torn over what to post about this month and I see no reason to attempt to put together some feel good shit because nothing ‘feels’ good to me, not at all. Too much nasty shit has gone down and the murder of Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Renisha McBride, Aiyana Jones, Sandra Bland, Walter Scott, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and there are so many others are still too raw for me, emotionally speaking, to post any uplifting stories about Negro history during what the ‘whites’ have designated, “Black History Month.”

I will leave it up to others to showcase the ‘feel good’ shit of Negro history and if any inspiration should strike me, you’ll be the second to know.

Of Dr. King, We Are Just So Proud!

Dr Martin Luther King Jr1

Of Dr. King, we are just so proud.
That man, he always drew a crowd.
He paved the way to a much brighter day.
His dream is alive in every way.

Tamir Rice is here to tell his story.
And Sandra Bland has no need to ever worry,
that her life will be snuffed out in a cell,
because Dr. King, he rang the freedom bell.

Michael Brown is in college where he belongs.
Eric Garner is in church singing spiritual songs.
Walter Scott is still driving down the street.
Freddie Gray is sitting down to a meal to eat.

They all owe their lives to Dr. King.
He said, “Let freedom ring! Let freedom ring!”
On the mountaintop, he saw through space and time.
And yet, they killed him while he was in his prime.

We thank him for the debt he willingly paid,
and for all the sacrifices he and his family made.
But what we will never know for certain,
is how he would react when they finally raise the curtain,
on a show that is a tragedy of the darkest kind,
and where Blacks are still left so far behind.
This play will not have a happy ending,
for its ending is just like its beginning.

Behold, the face of slavery is still Black.
And as in days of old, we are under attack.
But a man had a dream for which he died.
Was it all for naught? I’ll let you decide!

I am posting this a little early because I want you to take some time to reflect on the question I posed. “Was it all for naught?” If Black people have made so many gains in the decades since the Civil Rights Movement, then where are they? If we as a people have ‘moved’ forward, then where are the results? #BLACKLIVESMATTER? Give me a break! If we as a people had moved, there would be no need for the #BLACKLIVESMATTER Movement, now would there? The incarceration rate for Black men is off the charts. Millions of Black people live in deep poverty and a ridiculously high number of them are Black children. Millions of Black people are jobless, homeless and hungry and lack healthcare. But here we are, about to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. Celebrate what, I ask you? Tell me! What is there to celebrate? Staggering unemployment figures for Black youth and young adults? A homelessness epidemic? Mass incarceration? A school-to-prison pipeline? Out-of-control racist KKKops brutalizing and murdering unarmed Black people? Grand Juries that refuse to hand down indictments on racist thugs with badges? Gun violence in Black communities that are so impoverished as to be likened to 3rd world nation conditions?

And yet the ‘whites’ sit back and gleefully point the finger at what is going down in communities of color and point to how ‘violent they are when they know why. Whites know that this is all done by design, but it is so easy for them to live in their little ‘white bread’ world and hurl invectives and “I told you sos” when ‘whites’ are hell bent on gentrifying neighborhoods that once housed Black people because the suburbs was once the place to be if you were ‘white’. You sit somewhere with your holier-than-thou attitudes as though your shit don’t stink. You shamelessly and callously wish death on a group of people who were not responsible for being dragged to this hellhole you call, America. You strut around like proud peacocks, puffing your chests out and pretending that you’re not rotten filth when you are actually worse than that. And you have the unmitigated gall to pretend to acknowledge Dr. King with your phony ass displays of righteous indignation over the brutal treatment he received at the hands of ‘whites’. You have the nerve to speak his name, to post his “I Have A Dream” speech as though you ever did a thing to help bring his dream to fruition. You’ve done everything possible to see to it that his dream was never realized and you are not fit to read his name, much less speak it. Why you have not burst into flames upon speaking his name is a complete and utter mystery to me because all that should be left of you is ‘white’ ash!

The only thing I can say to the ‘whites’ is this, “If it were up to me…if it were up to me!!!”

Ho Hum! Obama’s Crying…..AGAIN!!!!

obama cries again

 

And he is not crying over the senseless murder of Sandra Bland in a Texas jail. He is not crying over the senseless murder of Tamir Rice. Oh no! That Black woman and Black child don’t matter to that half and half in the White House. Nope! Obama is STILL crying over those poor little innocent ‘white’ upper middle class kids in Newtown, CT that got themselves murdered. That senseless act of gun violence has just rendered him, inconsolable. He can barely function, he is literally prostrate with grief. He is so affected by the Newtown, CT shooting that he never got around to shedding one single goddamn tear over the senseless violent death by gun of innocent Tamir Rice by racist white-assed KKKops. He never got around to shedding one single goddamn tear over the senseless death of Sandra Bland by racist white-assed KKKops and she was most violently murdered. Violence is violence, regardless of whether it was from being hanged or by bullets fired from guns.

But now, it is time to get down to business and pen some executive orders because goddamn it, those little white kids in Newtown, CT just will not let Obama sleep at night. Visions of those dainty, fresh-faced innocents are just dancing around in his head like sheep. He’s counting each and every one of them but to hell with all the violence that is perpetrated against innocent Black people on a daily basis. There are simply no tears left for Obama to shed for them because…well..he’s saved them all up for the Newtown Angels. You see, it is all part of that subliminal message thing. Angels have been depicted as little white children with red rouge on their cheeks, dressed in purest white with wings attached. Obama was never introduced to a picture of a little Black Angel and so therefore, he could never quite wrap his head around seeing Tamir Rice with red rouge on his cheeks, dressed in purest white with wings attached; likewise for Sandra Bland. He could never equate them with being angelic.

Oh, how my heart just melted when I saw the picture of Obama’s tear-filled face. Oh damn! I am going to have to pay for that lie. I mean, I would if I believed that I’m hell bound for lying. So, I’m good ’cause I don’t! But goddamn! I digress!

Obama’s Tears for Sandy Hook Victims as He Announces New Gun Control Orders: ‘Every Time I Think About Those Kids, It Gets Me Mad’

President Obama broke down in tears on Tuesday as he publicly unveiled new executive orders on gun control that bypass Congress and seek to expand background checks on firearms purchases and close the so-called “gun-show loophole.”

Nicole Hockley and Mark Barden, parents who each lost children in the Dec. 14, 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, were on hand to show their support for the measures.

Tamir Rice’s mother was not invited to the White House because Obama is not mad and tearful over the murder of Tamir Rice. Sandra Bland’s mother was not invited to the White House because Obama is not mad and tearful over the murder of Sandra Bland because as far as Obama is concerned BLACK LIVES DO NOT MATTER! Black folks, do you get that? How much more blatant and in your face with it does Obama have to be before you actually get the fact that Obama could give a rat’s ass about you and your Black ass? He has not made his feelings or lack there of for you, crystal clear to you by now? What the fuck will it take? For him to personally don a blue or brown uniform and fill your ass with bullets? If it weren’t for the fact that some of your three-fifths human blood might get on him, he’d ‘do’ you himself. But he doesn’t have to. And he is well aware of the fact that Black people are the victims of gun violence more so than whites are, but that is an insignificant little detail in the grand scheme of things. He is paying lip service to the shits that are going to pay him to continue to live a lavish lifestyle after his ass is no longer taking up residence in the White House. He knows who is going to continue to butter his bread long after he’s shown the back of his heels to the Oval Office and you don’t have what it takes to keep him living in the style to which he has become accustomed. Do you seriously think that he is going to move his family back to Chicago where he supposedly got his humble beginnings as a junior senator? Yeah! And the Pope is Black and a ‘white’ man is human.

So while Obama sheds crocodile tears for the Newtown Angels, invites their family members to the White House, pens executive orders on gun control, you get to continue to die by the gun held in the hands of racist KKKops. You get to continue to be choked, strangled and bludgeoned to death because BLACK LIVES DO NOT MATTER and gun violence is something that just should not happen to ‘white’ folks! But over your genocide, he won’t shed a tear! He has shed them all for the Newtown Angels because he is mad as hell that white folks died by the very gun they  SO love. 

Merry Christmas Sandra Bland And To All Black Women In AmeriKKKa!

Sandra Bland1

 

Merry Christmas to ALL Black women. If you don’t know where you stand, then ask Sandra Bland. Ask the Grand Jury that decided that indictments for her murder were not necessary. Ask Bernie Sanders why he said, “There’s no doubt in my mind that she, like too many African Americans who die in police custody, would be alive today if she were a white woman,” Sanders said in a statement. “We need to reform a very broken criminal justice system.”

How the fuck can a system that is so broken; so deliberately broken be reformed? It needs to be destroyed.

But there you sit, Black women, wrapping presents and smiling at your daughters who may one day end up just like Sandra Bland. There you sit, hoping that Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton will initiate a reform of a fucked up criminal justice system that is anything but JUST to US! It is JUST US in the criminal injustice system and don’t you know it. But still, you wrap gifts and head to the mall for some last minute gift ideas. You laughingly joke with your friends that you have finally approached the end of your shopping. The Christmas tree is decorated. The Christmas dinner is going to be delicious this year. You have got so much to be thankful for. Yes, be thankful that you and your daughters are not Sandra Bland. Be real thankful. Be so thankful that you forget to stop for a moment and forget about Sandra Bland. Forget about the stupid goddamn reason she was pulled over. Forget about the fact that she was jailed in Texas over a minor, a MINOR traffic infraction and did she ever see the light of day afterwards? Hell no! She was SO goddamn depressed over her new job in Texas that she hanged herself in a Texas jail. Texas! The Lone Star State; home of the Alamo where a brave group of white shits that had fucked up the Indians confiscated Mexico and decided that THEY were the oppressed. Yeah, right! When the fuck have whites EVER been oppressed? Yeah, I’d fucking like to see THAT oppression! It’s always been the other way around. Oh how they love to re-write history to suit their own fucked up agenda. But those of us who refuse to be blindsided and bamboozled by those bloodthirsty savages know better. We know that Sandra Bland did not kill herself regardless of what some see-through skinned rejects from hell say!

Hold on while I top my 64′ Christmas tree with a lily-white assed angel! “Oh dear white god, high atop your heavenly perch, I am feeling your love! Oh fucking yes I am! And so is Sandra Bland. She felt your goddamn love so damn much that she hanged herself. She wanted to fucking meet you that damn bad! I just know she did. The white motherfuckers tell me so!” Isn’t that why no one is being held accountable for her death? Of course it is! No white filth in Texas had a goddamn thing to do with Sandra Bland found hanged in a jail cell. Those handy trash bags are put there for the express purpose of hanging your depressed ass if you feel the call. And Sandra Bland, according to all reports from filthy white asses, did indeed heed the call to meet her white ass maker in the sky. Praise the Lawd and pass the blood of Geezus to cleanse and wash away her sins! St. Peter done opened the gates of heaven and Sandra Bland is poised to enter. Oh wait! Hell no! She cannot enter the pearly gates because she committed the ultimate sin; she committed suicide in a Texas jail cell. Sakes alive! What the fuck? Sandra Bland was put through hell on earth and dammit if she’s not hell bound upon completion of her stint of hell on earth. Ain’t religion grand? Sandra Bland should not have been buried on consecrated ground for she was a sinner of the first degree. “Hear ye! Hear ye! No suicide shall be buried on consecrated ground. So sorry Sandra Bland. Heaven is not for you!” so sayeth the white man.

Heaven is for the saintly ass whites that murdered you. They are the vile and filthy shits that blindly send Black women and their daughters into churches all across AmeriKKKa; to sit up and worship some lily-white assed god that will never recognize you. You’re not white-assed. So, sit your worthless ass down, Black women and continue worshipping that which would kill each and every one of you if they could. And believe me, they are trying. You are worthless to them. Don’t that beat all? Oh fucking yeah! But you fall for their bullshit every time. You head to church on Sunday morning. You sit up in the pew and you listen to the word as written by lily white ass and you believe it. You swear by it. You uphold it and it never lets you down, does it? “Oh, my son Cedric will graduate from high school, ‘god’ willing!” Fuck god. He don’t will shit! God is a figment of a white motherfucker’s imagination and he uses that ‘god’ to control you and it is working. Why should it not? You’re fucking brainwashed and don’t lily white ass know it. He’s done a goddamn good ass job of it!

So, go ahead and sing your Christmas carols. Deck the halls with boughs of holly and fa-lalalala all goddamn day long. Spend your money! Max out your credit cards. Make some rich white shit’s day! Give over the title to your car and then buy that gigamongus 220″ HDTV. Hock your ass for the white man’s junk! He won’t even thank you for it. But he will hang your ass in a Texas jail and claim that you hanged yourself; you were THAT depressed AND suicidal! Deck your goddamn halls!

Merry Christmas, Sandra Bland and to you a silent, lonely and deadly night!

Our Beautiful Black Skin!

we have got to stop this from continuing to happen

Their tongues are twisted from spouting lies.
And their hollowed-out sockets contain no eyes.

The stench of their corruption is everywhere,
bringing dark-skinned people such despair.

Inside a prison and locked in a cage
are all my brothers filled with rage.

My sisters are murdered every day.
Is this any way to live? Hell no! No way!

The fork-tongued devils are on our ass.
Their see-through skin gives them a pass.

With fetid breath and acid for blood,
they seek to destroy the Negro bud.

By drenching our streets with crack cocaine.
And by dumbing us down so that we don’t use our brain.

We don’t fight back, we just raise our hands.
And supplicate ourselves; obeying their commands.

All throughout history, tell me what has changed?
We live underneath the boot of the psychotic and deranged.

They say they earned their wealth by the sweat of their brow.
We know the truth, the slaves sweated and how.

Our people built this shithole and were raped and lashed.
And to this very day, Black heads are bashed.

What other group of people would take this shit?
Who else would bow their head and take another hit?

We go down this same road, year after year,
screaming “No justice, no peace” in another deaf ear.

The soles of our shoes are worn so thin.
We so are hated for our beautiful Black skin!

This poem was born thanks to The Militant Negro™. One of his most recent posts really caught at my heart because what keeps happening to the Negro in Amerikkka is just SO goddamn wrong. Yet another Black man that was wrongfully convicted of a crime, spent 27 years in prison. This man was innocent and the white criminal injustice system, because this man was not white, incarcerated him on bogus ass charges and knew it. And yet, even after having spent 27 years in prison and most likely experienced untold brutalities and had atrocities committed against his person, this man actually forgave the shits that got him erroneously convicted. This man could have been sent to death row and put to death and he was innocent. Mr. Donald Eugene Gates is a more forgiving person than I could ever be. You see, when I hear or see stories such as this one, it does not fill my heart with a warm glow. It does not make me want to go to church and thank a non-existent ‘god’ for ‘keeping my spirits up’ because I don’t believe in some ‘god’ that would allow an innocent man to rot in prison for 27 years thanks to pure fucking racism, prejudice, white privilege and slavery. Yes, slavery! Because prison is just the new form of slavery. The slave patrols are out hassling Black people on a daily basis. The Klan dressed in blue or brown take off their white sheets, don those blue or brown uniforms and commence to busting caps in Black asses. And when they’re not doing that, they are imprisoning Black men, women and children on bullshit charges. They are killing them inside jail and prison walls and blaming it on their mental status. “They committed suicide.” Well there has been a goddamn rash of suicides. And some have even been handcuffed, sitting in the back of a police cruiser and somehow managed to shoot themselves in the head. Then there are the ones that conveniently find trash bags and snuff their lives out. Bullshit!

One thing about me, I am not forgiving and I don’t forget and I sure as hell don’t pretty shit up, tie a nice little bow on it and present it to my readers. Oh no! That is not my way. That is not how I roll. The shit that goes down is filthy. It is vile. It is barbaric and it is happening to people who look like me and the time to be all nice when talking about this has passed. A part of my soul that writes poetry is dead. It died from sheer misery. It died from reading about the atrocities that are committed daily against people that had the nerve to be born with a lot of melanin in their skin. That is a crime? That is punishable by death? Once again, for the motherfuckers that are slow or otherwise dumb as shit, my Black ass and every other Black person that is a descendant of African slaves did not get into a goddamn boat and row the fuck over to this shithole. Don’t think for one goddamn second that I am going to worry about hurting some motherfucker’s feelings when white asses don’t give a fuck for what goes down against Black people in this shithole every single goddamn day. And don’t even act like you don’t notice it.

No indeed, I am NOT Mr. Gates, the forgiving’ for what was done to him. AGAIN, that is not me. And the problem is that we have too many Black people who are just like Mr. Gates; worshipping some white man’s ‘god’ and being all forgiving. What has being forgiving got Black people in this shithole? In the morgue, piled sky high, that’s what it’s gotten them. It has gotten them wall-to-wall inside prison walls enriching corporate assholes; making money for the white man, same as in those good ole days of slavery that never went anywhere. And they are not going anywhere as long as Black people continue to march down the goddamn street with cap in hand to the filthy ass whites, expecting some damn justice. This is going to continue as long as we continue to just print protest sign after protest sign and beg for justice and peace. It is really working out for us, isn’t it?

Mr. Gates is in ill health. Go figure! And what he received in compensation for what he went through was an insult but the really sad part is that even though his life was deemed worthless, Mr. Gates more than likely will never get to ‘enjoy’ the millions he received for being wrongfully imprisoned for 27 years and yet, he forgave those that fabricated evidence that got him wrongfully convicted. And for that, I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry!
