Trump Claims That He Has Been The Best President For “African-Americans,” And That Is Actually True

 

It is Donald Trump’s contention that he has done more for African-Americans than ALL other presidents with one exception; Abraham Lincoln. But if truth be told, Abraham Lincoln did nothing for the slaves. You cannot ‘free’ people who weren’t even legally considered, ‘human’. You cannot ‘free’ people who were dragged from across an ocean, enslave them and then tell them to “go forth and earn their keep” when they were ignorant, clueless and at the ‘mercy’ of those who had enslaved them. Abraham Lincoln was a filthy, dirty piece of racist shit and he deserves NO credit for a damn thing as it pertains to ‘freeing the slaves’.

Donald Trump has done more for African Americans than we think

For close to four years, Donald Trump has claimed that he has done more for black Americans than any president since Abraham Lincoln.

Surprisingly, however, Trump is not exactly wrong. He has been one of the best presidents for black Americans, just not for the reasons he thinks. His administration has raised the curtain on the battles against both structural and “in your face” racism in the country. Not enough people listened to us before, but we seem to have their attention these days.

Does anyone really believe that major companies would be posting videos on social media talking over why Black Lives Matter if Hillary Clinton were elected president? Does anyone think that protests would be taking place in every single state across the nation? The answer is of course not. Much of what we have seen with regard to race relations and the paradigm shift that has been taking place can be connected to the election of Trump.

Yes indeed, Donald Trump embodies what IS Amerikkka. Trump lays bare the very funky, racist essence that IS Amerikkka. Donald Trump is every single white ass in Amerikkka and they know this. Donald Trump IS Derek Chauvin. Donald Trump IS every single piece of shit that bust down the door of Breonna Taylor’s home and shot her dead; shot her eight times for merely sleeping in her apartment. Donald Trump is every single goddamn kkkop that has murdered an unarmed Black woman, child and man and gotten away with it. Donald Trump IS the exact same type of filth that gunned down Tamir Rice in a park. Donald Trump IS the same type of racist, murdering scum that murdered seven-year old Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley-Jones as she lay sleeping inside her home. Donald Trump IS the same filth that is why millions of American descendants of slavery, through gentrification, have lost their homes and are walking the streets of Amerikkka, homeless.

Whites, for ALL of these hundreds of years have tried to hide their racist shit behind facades of smiling, baby kissing politicians promising this and promising that until Donald Trump came along and laid bare the stark reality of what whites really are; stinking, stupid, ignorant, racist, cowardly, murdering filth! Donald Trump IS Amerikkka and though I have covered this before, it is befitting at this time to go over it AGAIN!

Thanks to Donald Trump, whites can no longer sit somewhere in comfort and believe that their filthy racist, bigoted ass is smelling like a rose as opposed to stinking up this fucked up country. Thanks to Donald Trump, there are no more rose colored glasses that hide the stark, “in our face” racism that American descendants of slavery have been dealing with since our ancestors were dragged to this shithole while whites pretended that their racist shit didn’t stink. Thanks to Donald Trump, the lid came off and the reality of what Black people have been up against for hundreds of years, has now been laid bare for ALL the world to see. Thanks to Donald Trump, Pandora’s Box is now open and there is no way that what has been seen can be unseen. Thanks to Donald Trump, even American descendants of slavery have found their voice and some damn spirit and will NOT be silenced. Donald Trump was needed. Donald Trump was the necessary evil to unveil the TRUTH that IS Amerikkka; a country that was built by stolen people on stolen land and the thieves have always sugarcoated the shit, covered it up, white washed it and called it everything, but what it is, a diseased whore that needs to die already!

Donald Trump seems to have no true and real understanding of just how true his words ring, but nevertheless, Donald Trump is right. Trump has been the best thing that could have ever happened because even the most blind, the most slow retard is aware of what Amerikkka really stands for and justice, freedom and humanitarianism have absofuckinglutely NOTHING whatsoever to do with Amerikkka; NOTHING! This diseased whore called “Amerikkka” stands for theft, war crimes, vicious lies, crimes against humanity, genocide, human experimentation, slavery, racism, bigotry, prejudice, ignorance, intolerance, corruption, white supremacy, white privilege, gentrification, mass incarceration of descendants of slavery, mass poverty of descendants of slavery, income inequality, a school-to-prison pipeline, hunger, drug and gun saturated Black communities, hate groups and the list of the like is endless. None of that shit can be denied because Trump lifted the lid off ALL of that shit! A draft dodging, silver spoon fed, useless, corrupt, lying, criminal, bankrupt racist came along and laid bare the fundamental truth in that Amerikkka stands for SHIT!

Black Americans do not have to imagine a government that imposes hard physical and psychological damage on its own citizens. They do not have to imagine a government that allows entire segments of the population to dwindle in poverty, while falling victim to an unfair education system that provides little to no opportunities. They live and breathe this every day.

Every goddamn word of that is true! We have never had to imagine a goddamn thing because we were always busy on the receiving end of that shit! And what’s more, every single damn one of you whites know that shit, but because Donald Trump came along and refused to ‘play nice’, you could no longer sit somewhere in pretend ignorance of what you knew had been going down against us all along since it is because of YOU that we have been experiencing that shit! But now that Trump has exposed your true colors, your viciousness and depravity, you had to jump into ‘damage control’ mode, but that shit is too little, too late. The whole goddamn world has now been made aware of just what seriously filthy, dispassionate, racist, ignorant, thieving, lying, murdering psychopaths you’ve always been. There is no hiding what you are and so now, to try and save face, you’re out on the goddamn streets screeching and yelling about “Black Lives Matter!” Save that shit for someone who believes you believe it because it is, AGAIN, too goddamn little, too goddamn late!

The death of George Floyd might be the moment that historians look back on as the inflection point that forced the country to look in the mirror. But that does not tell the whole story. The election of Trump and spread of his bigotry sparked unintended effects. Trump has been one of the best presidents for black Americans, just not for the reasons he thinks.

Yes indeed, Donald Trump WAS the best thing that could ever have happened FOR American descendants of slavery because now, we are NOT the only ones who are witness to the whites’ depravity, vicious racism, hatred, prejudice, bigotry, savagery, brutality, barbarity and murderous ruthlessness. No one on this entire godforsaken planet is unaware of THAT shit! Yeah, try hiding YOUR filthy shit now, whites! You fucking cannot! But you are still at it; busily arresting everyone of us that you can get your hands on because now that you’ve got nothing to lose seeing as how you can’t rewrite another history book to cover up your funky ass shit, you may as well go for broke. Well, guess the fuck what. We are too! It’s on motherfuckers!

Since It Is Black History Month, Why Are Black Students Being Forced To Celebrate Hispanic Heritage?

 

I am so very glad that I have NO children in school these days because I would have been arrested so many damn times, it ain’t even funny.

She sat out the anthem in protest . Her teacher said, ‘Go back to your country’, students say.

The students were assembled in the auditorium of their high school on Chicago’s North Side, there to celebrate Hispanic heritage — but first, their teachers told them, they had to stand for the national anthem.

A group of students, who thought the request unusual, decided to remain seated. It was a silent but recognizable condemnation of racial injustice.

When one student — a Latina and U.S. citizen — refused a teacher’s pointed direction to stand, she said he replied with an infamously racist line: “Go back to your country.” The same teacher turned to a black student, who was also sitting down, and asked whether she was part of the public school system’s free and reduced lunch program, telling her she should stand for the people who have died for the country, the students said.

They were then told to leave the assembly.

Again, why were the Black students forced to attend a Hispanic heritage event in the first place when they should have been attending a Black History Month event? And why was the focus, during Black History Month, not on what the little Black child was told by the teacher, but the focus is on what was told to the Latina child? I am so damn tired of the plight of American descendants of slaves overlooked even during the month that has been set aside by the whites to ostensibly celebrate any gains made by Black people in this shithole. Our celebrations are relegated to the shadows when some other group has supposedly been slighted.

The little Black girl who sat out a racist national anthem was not the focal point of this article, the focus was on the Latina child who was told to “Go back to your country!” Black people are not telling those Latinos to go back anywhere. Whites are doing that shit and Latinos have whites to thank for why they are sitting somewhere in migrant camps on the southern border, but that’s not the problem we American descendants of slaves should be concerned about. We have multiple problems and many of them are visited on us by the whites’ greed when they hire Latinos, Latinas, Hispanics or whatever they want to be called over us because they get to pay them a mere pittance since whites very well know that there are more than likely multiple illegals attached to the one legal Latino sitting their ass over here.

American descendants of slaves are shown time and time again that we don’t matter for shit because I cannot believe that this is actually ‘Black History Month’ since there has not been hide nor hair of ANY major coverage from ANY mainstream news media about ‘Black History Month’. And this story proves my point. Why focus on what was said to a Latina while ignoring what was said to a little Black girl, who is a descendant of slaves during Black History Month?

The same teacher turned to a black student, who was also sitting down, and asked whether she was part of the public school system’s free and reduced lunch program, telling her she should stand for the people who have died for the country.

Yeah! Read that again! This little Black girl was stereotyped because all whites believe that Black students make up the majority when it comes to being poor enough to qualify for free or reduced lunch programs and even if that were true, are you skanks wondering why? Seriously?

You whites make damn sure that the Black parents of little Black girls and Black boys all across this shithole are sitting behind bars on bullshit charges. You make damn sure that we are the last hired and the first to be fired. You made damn sure that jobs that used to afford a decent living to Black families were shipped overseas. You infiltrated our organizations and incarcerated, murdered or sent our Black revolutionaries into exile because they were trying to fight back against your rabid and insane hatred of us. You burned our towns. You destroyed our Black Wall Street and you bombed our asses as well. And yet, you expect us to stand and listen to some piece of shit national anthem penned by the likes of you who got his ass kicked by some slave soldiers? Yeah! You go back and read how Francis Scott Key got his ass handed to him by some Black soldiers and he didn’t hardly appreciate that shit and so penned this stanza when he put together YOUR national anthem, not mine.

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.

And so what does the above mean? It meant that slaves joined up with the British to fight against their tormentors; their ‘owners’.

The orders given to the Royal Navy’s Admiral Sir George Cockburn read:

“Let the landings you make be more for the protection of the desertion of the Black Population than with a view to any other advantage. … The great point to be attained is the cordial Support of the Black population. With them properly armed & backed with 20,000 British Troops, Mr. Madison will be hurled from his throne.

Whole families found their way to the ships of the British, who accepted everyone and pledged no one would be given back to their “owners.” Adult men were trained to create a regiment called the Colonial Marines, who participated in many of the most important battles, including the August 1814 raid on Washington.

So when Francis Scott Key penned “No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,” he was taking great satisfaction in the death of slaves who’d freed themselves. His perspective may have been affected by the fact he owned several slaves himself.

After the U.S. and the British signed a peace treaty at the end of 1814, the U.S. government demanded the return of American “property,” which by that point numbered about 6,000 people. The British refused. Most of the 6,000 eventually settled in Canada, with some going to Trinidad, where their descendants are still known as “Merikins.”

Francis Scott Key got his ass kicked by a regiment of Black slave Colonial Marines and he didn’t hardly appreciate that fact and so penned that vile shit and called it, “The Star Spangled Banner” and yet many Black singers have bellowed that vile shit out and they had to have known about this verse as well even if they did not take the time to read up on the history of that disgusting piece of shit song. The British refused to turn over what the U.S. government deemed its ‘PROPERTY’! And what the fuck has changed? Not a goddamn thing because descendants of slaves are property. Blacks like Gladys Knight, Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Diana Ross and yes, even dead ones, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin just to name a few have all sung a song that stands for a nation steeped in the blood of Indians and slaves dragged from Africa. A nation that proudly, to this day, confirms that it still stands for slavery and genocide seeing as how there over 2 million descendants of slaves incarcerated which is more than were original African slaves and the Indians are still segregated on reservations experiencing hunger, illness and abject poverty while the descendants of those who put them there are still waging war on the descendants of slaves and the Indigenous population.

And yet a little Black girl is told that since she most likely receives a “free or reduced lunch” that she should be “standing for people who died for this country.” Newsfuckingflash, her people did die for this country! Her people did fight and die for a country that hated them even as they fought for a country filled with the most deranged, depraved, blood thirsty, bigoted, racist filth to ever slither and crawl all across this shithole. That little Black girl had every right to sit or stand as she saw fit because the blood of her ancestors was left on every goddamn battlefield all across this shithole and the world despite the intense racism, bigotry, prejudice, Jim Crow, hatred and intolerance they had to endure in this hellhole that their ancestors had been dragged to. So shut the fuck up because she had every right to sit that vile shit out! The spilled blood of her ancestors on numerous battlefields gave her that right. She’s not sitting shit out because your pasty asses died for her. She’s sitting that shit out because those who looked like her died for her, you insane rabid, hate filled, pasty assed beasts!

And don’t start that shit up about how Donald Trump has emboldened this type of behavior in institutions all across this shithole. Are you serious? This shit has already been going down and anyone with their head not stuck up their ass would have seen this. Not one American descendant of slaves is shocked and appalled because this is the first time we are seeing this rabid, racist ‘in our face’ shit! Where the hell have you whites been? You mean, you haven’t been noticing just what the hell you’ve been visiting on our asses since our ancestors were first dragged here? Don’t start that shit! You know damn well that Trump did not instigate this shit. Did police murdering innocent Black men, women and children occur just as Trump descended to the presidency? Did the mass incarceration of American descendants of slaves occur just as Trump descended to the presidency? Likewise the so-called ‘War on Drugs’? The school-to-prison pipeline? Massive income inequality of American descendants of slaves? Mass homelessness of American descendants of slaves? A massive decline in wealth of American descendants of slaves? Mass foreclosure of homes of American descendants of slaves? Did ALL of this shit occur when Donald Trump stepped foot inside the Oval Office? Hell fucking no! And you goddamn well know this. So don’t sit on your pasty ass and exclaim that this shit just occurred when Donald Trump sat his debased, racist ass inside the White House. You whites have ALWAYS been what you are; a bunch of damn Donald Trumps. Don’t fucking act like you’re not Trump! You ALL are for if not, the shit wouldn’t have been going down for centuries, but it has and it still is and what’s more, nothing is going to change and you damn well know this!

That shit is why we are ‘celebrating’ Black History Month? If so, get the fuck outta here with that bullshit!

What Was Achieved By All The Marching And Protesting By Dr. King And Others?

 

A few years ago, I wrote a poem about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and that poem elicited some comments that basically intimated that Dr. King and all the others who were part of the Civil Rights struggle actually made no gains, period. Now, we can argue over it all day and all night as to whether or not Dr. King and crew were successful in their endeavors, but one thing I would like you to do is to continue reading and decide for yourself. And I will give Dr. King one thing, he tried….. something. Whether or not it was the right thing? You tell me.

Of Dr. King, We Are Just So Proud!

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 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 you ‘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 above is what I also posted along with the poem and next, I am going to post a comment about this particular post and my response.

I’ve always looked at MLK with curious eye because my parent were both Black Panthers when I was growing up and Dr. King was almost forbidden in my house. I only saw him as an on bent knee begging white people for some table scraps and to please not hit us anymore. Though growing up, I’ve come to understand him a bit better and my only thought now about the man is, “praying has brought Black peoples nothing but dirty knees and empty pockets.”

shelbycourtland’s response:

HLJ, this isn’t so much about me revering Dr. King as it is about exposing the blatant and outrageous hypocrisy of the ‘whites’. They are the very ones who go on and on about Dr. King’s ‘dream’ when it is quite obvious that they gave not a damn for the man nor his dream. They spout useless rhetoric each and every time the holiday in his name comes around and that is all they do. And while they are doing this, the continuation of enslavement of Black people continues, the continuation of the Negro status as that of 3rd class ‘citizen’ continues. We aren’t even tolerated in this shithole. We are incarcerated and murdered and yet the ‘whites’ go on and on about how thankful Blacks should be since we are supposedly living in the ‘greatest nation on earth’. I fucking beg to differ with that assessment. Black people are a people without a country. We are enslaved in a system that is corrupt to its core and is filled with racist filth and we are expected to subjugate ourselves to criminals of the worst kind.

Dr. King was but a tool and he was used to put down any attempt at an insurrection, a rebellion or a revolution. The ‘whites’ condoned the actions of Dr. King because he was their namby-pamby house Negro; the same as Barack Obama and all the rest of the coon head sell-outs that bow and scrape to the ‘white’ motherfuckers and lick their boots clean while scrabbling for their table scraps at the same time. I am not giving any accolades to Dr. King because he was no revolutionary, he was a stooge. My poem is a sarcastic and antonymous portrayal of Dr. King. That is why I stated that because of Dr. King, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Michael Brown and Walter Scott and so many others have him to ‘thank’ for their lives. My point is to also show how far we have NOT come even with these so-called ‘movements’ that are merely fake assed props that are put in place to give Black people the illusion that they are actually doing something constructive to put a stop to the genocide of them by the ‘whites’. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Dr. King was just a figurehead, a prop; complete with suit and tie and bible. He was the ‘white’ mans house nigger and he did a fine of job of spreading the ‘white’ man’s propaganda of telling Black people to go about effecting change, all peaceful like. And when his usefulness was over, they fucking killed him just to show that a gun is aimed at us at ALL times because we are still their property! Fuck ’em!

I thank you for your comment.

And another great comment I thought I should add.

Good post. A lot of us at least have some idea of the real deal with him but too many don’t. They could start looking at what really happened with the march on Washington. They should ask themselves why do we only hear of one person from that era? I also think someone else wrote most of his famous speeches? While he stayed with mostly the same approach, Dr. King had doubts about a lot of what he had said earlier before his death.

How long will we keep marching? Those of us who are marching need to stop. When will we get to the “Dream”?

Is this another white Jesus thing? To be fair, there were black Christians who pretty much can’t be criticized but his approach seemed to be pulled straight from parts of the Bible that even those who believe in the BIble find hard to justify(I myself don’t believe in those passages or the books that contained them).

shelbycourtland’s response:

They can consider Dr. King to have been a figurehead, a Civil Rights leader, a scapegoat or what have you, but his sole purpose was to misdirect Black people’s anger away from fucking shit up but instead focused it on ‘peacefully’ marching down the goddamn street of every pothole filled city in this shithole. You don’t hear the ‘whites’ screaming and jumping up and down about setting aside a day in which to honor Malcolm X. And you won’t! Malcolm X was not going on and on about some ‘peaceful’ this and ‘peaceful’ that. He had some harsh words for those vile ‘white’ shits that have firmly planted their boot on our Black ass and refuse to lift it.

Malcolm X was a revolutionary who believed in violent resistance, he believed in getting things done ‘by any means necessary’. That is why he said, “It’s got to be the ballot or the bullet.” The ballot ain’t worked. And we ALL fucking know what it would take but the revolutionaries of the ’60s are either dead or still locked up and so we just dutifully continue with the useless ass marches and protests with signs dating back 50 years when not a goddamn thing is going to change simply because we are holding up a sign. What has #BLACKLIVESMATTER accomplished? Not a goddamn thing!

Thank you for your comment N.S.

As I have stated before, peruse this content to your heart’s content and then think about the state that Black Amerikkka is in today and you tell me, did ALL of that marching and protesting lead to ANY gains? And if so, how so? Where are they? Black people are more asleep today than than they were in the  60s thanks to dumb ass rap music, pretend beefs among so-called Black celebrities, Youtube madness, Twitter and Facebook mess and the like is endless. There is only moaning and whining coming from Black Amerikkka when Black people do eventually look up and realize how fucked we are that is until another distraction down the pike; another Black Panther Movie or Madea bullshit movie from the likes of Tyler Perry’s faggot ass! That shit, we don’t need. Hell! Damn near half of Black Amerikkka has no idea why today is being ‘celebrated’. Check this shit out!

Just skip to the five minute mark when she says, “The kids are out of school on Monday and we don’t even know why.” Also, her sixteen year old daughter did not even know why she is out of school today. Seriously???!!!! Too busy staring down at shit on a phone, most likely is the reason and the mother is just too dizzy for words.

This is what we have to work with these days and it is quite obvious, that we have nothing to work with. So you tell me, what was it all for? Cluelessness? Ignorance? Gluttony? Youtube channels? Twitter? Facebook?

Black Amerikkka is dealing with rabid racism, gentrification, income inequality, mass incarceration, a school-to-prison pipeline, disparities in healthcare, child poverty, a homeless epidemic, crime infested neighborhoods, drugs and gangs and prostitution that is out-of-control and the list of the like is endless and yet, here we are ‘celebrating’ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day. For what? And in less than two weeks, we shall be expected to ‘celebrate ‘Black History Month’. Why? Because I have just described  ‘Black History’ up to present day and so what is there to celebrate? You tell me. I can’t wait.

 

 

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!

Black Lives Chatter!

black-lives-chatter

Black lives chatter!
What’s the matter?
No one is even listening.
Not even the Mad Hatter!

Black lives chatter!
What’s on your platter?
Another protest march
as more feet go pitter patter?

Black lives chatter!
Your message is even flatter
than Taylor Swift’s ass
pumped with yeast-filled batter.

Black lives chatter!
Your pockets are fatter,
but what have you accomplished
with your Black Lives Chatter?

I’ll tell you! Not a goddamn thing!

What the fuck has BlackLivesChatter accomplished? If someone can point out to me, just what the fuck BlackLivesChatter has accomplished, then by all means, please post it here! Because from where I sit, they got nothing!

AGAIN, for the Black folks who are either slow or otherwise dumb as all hell, the whites don’t give a shit about your life. You are unable to understand this? Why would George Soros give a shit about you? He is behind the explosion of that stupid shit, “BlackLivesChatter!” Who do you want to realize that Black lives matter? The ‘whites’? Get the fuck outta here with that stupid bullshit! They show you every single day that they don’t give a shit about you and yet you continuously shout to them that your life matters when it NEVER will matter to them! When you finally recognize that your life should matter to you and that other Black lives should matter to you, then and only then will you figure out just what the fuck you need to do to get your act together but until then, just continue acting out and hope that today’s whitey white ass that’s the progeny of what dragged your ancestors over here, will finally get an epiphany and lay off shooting you, enslaving you in the new prison slave pens and will stop gentrifying your neighborhoods. Yeah! And then, piss in the wind because like all the other shit that’s going down, it’s gonna blow back in your face anyway. Now open wide! In coming!

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!!!”

When You Get Tired…..

break free

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. –

Time To Celebrate Black History Month…AGAIN!

They cannot celebrate Black History Month because they are history!
They cannot celebrate Black History Month because they are history!

Where shall we begin? Let us celebrate the 11% unemployment rate for Black men even though the national unemployment aka jobless rate stands at 5.9% and if your head’s not stuck up your ass, then you know that even that is a damn lie! Break out the champagne Black folks for those of you who can afford a bottle of say, Andre Cold Duck! Clink those plastic cups together and then piss in the wind because it’s all blowing back your way anyway; the shit that keeps hitting the fan, that is.

Next on our celebration list is the shit that is going down in our public education system better known as the ‘school-to-prison pipeline’ if you’re a student of color in these here United States of America where we celebrate Black History Month each and every February. This month is dedicated to showcasing the achievements of Black people in America. We are celebrating each and every single achievement that has not yet occurred but will eventually occur and we are real sure of this happening any day now.

To continue the celebrations, let us look at the child poverty statistics that are sure to impress us during these celebrations of future achievements that we are hell bent on celebrating this month. We are celebrating the fact that ‘child poverty in America is at its highest point in 20 years, putting millions of children at increased risk of injuries, infant mortality, and premature death’. And if that isn’t bad enough, ‘7 million kids still don’t have health insurance’. This is just so worth celebrating, what an achievement! What a dream as opposed to a nightmare. I wonder what that famous man who had a dream, would think of this. I seriously wonder.

But wait! There is more to celebrate this Black History Month! The good news just keeps on coming. ‘Incarceration rate for African-Americans now six times the national average’ is still making headlines among Black prisoners and their mostly white guards and the white slave patrol that arrested them for say, selling loose, untaxed cigarettes, selling marijuana or crack while completely ignoring the white man that was buying said crack and marijuana from the guilty by birth African-American other wise known as Colored otherwise known as Black otherwise known as felon or prisoner no.1,000,034. White folks, why don’t you just lock up every single Black person at birth? It’ll save you the trouble of doing so later on since many of us will know what it feels like to be shackled just as those we are descended from knew what it felt like. And the beat goes on and we celebrate it.

And ‘here’s the Data That Shows Cops Kill Black People at a Higher Rate Than White People’, now ain’t that a bitch?! Unfortunately, Michael Brown is not here to celebrate this Black History Month with us because he was shot and killed by a cop. Twelve year old Tamir Rice is also not here this year to help us celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop while playing with a toy gun in a park. John Crawford, likewise, is not here to celebrate because he was shot and killed by a cop in Wal-Mart while holding a toy gun.  Eric Garner, unfortunately, for him, was selling loose, untaxed cigarettes and that cost him his life and so he will not be joining in the celebrations. Terrance Franklin was shot and killed by cops following a traffic stop and he will not be celebrating ether. Seven year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones was shot  and killed by a cop while she slept and the charge of manslaughter against the cop that shot and killed her was dropped and so, she is not just ‘under-the-weather’, she is underground and therefore, is not able to celebrate this historic month. Let us celebrate on her behalf.

Fortunately, I have found yet another statistic that gives us even more of a reason to celebrate Black history month. Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless. We have come so far this February in the year of our Lord 2015, have we not? Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population. Doesn’t that just give you a warm and comfortable, cozy feeling that those homeless people lack? These are achievements that we have here folks! Time to celebrate and to keep the momentum going. Our ancestors would be so proud of where we are today. Don’t you think? Does this not make you aware that BLACK LIVES DO NOT MATTER?!

Now, on the other hand, Tyler Perry will dress up in drag and put some Black folks to work on another Madea movie and Beyoncé will croon about a Halo for Jay-Z and Jay-Z will rap about niggas while DMX will head back to prison for drug possession, get out on probation again and then go right back in for drug possession. Viola Davis will have no problem getting cast as yet another maid after her role in ‘The Help’ and Forest Whitaker is probably all set to play yet another version of someone’s Butler since every one is well aware that us Black folks are so good at bowing and scraping and being subservient to our ‘betters’.

Finally, I’ve given you many reasons to celebrate this month. The reasons are endless and our achievements that we will watch for some time in the future are making life much better for so many of us and that is why we must enjoy this Black History Month. We have no need to march and protest like those Black people in the 1960s did. We are so past that in this here post-racial America. I mean, what we have here is a post-racial America, is it not? But nevertheless, Dr. King would be so proud as would his stalwart, fellow marchers-in-arms at the progress that we have made since his infamous, I Have A Dream speech. We shall overcome! Uh…what I meant to say is that, “We did overcome!” Now like the good little sheep you are, start celebrating all of this shit!! And look ahead to when the REAL achievements will come because surely they must come!

 

I Put America Up For Sale!

america for sale1

I make promises all too easily.
Why should a conscience be my guide?
When I break each and every one of them,
I then blame the other side.

I promised hope and change,
and to close Guantanamo.
But now I blame it all on congress.
They are my eternal foe.

When I had the votes to get it done,
I just pissed two years away,
And now my legacy is in the toilet.
Behold, my feet of clay.

There is blood upon my hands,
from the innocent I did bury
underneath the desert sands;
those found guilty by no jury.

I am the judge and executioner;
the harbinger of death.
I bow before my masters.
For them, I’ll sink to any depth.

I am a father to my children,
and a husband to my wife.
And yet I aid and abet,
in the taking of a life.

Don’t ever make a promise,
that you know you will not keep.
Never promise hope and change,
when you’re willing to sell it cheap.

I have made my bed and it is soft.
My nest is feathered well.
I did what I had to do.
I put America up for sale.

When Barack Obama first ascended to the presidency, the Democrats controlled the House and the Senate. The time to get things done would have been that two year period when he had the votes necessary, but his focus was on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that was eventually signed into law with much fanfare, but did little in the way of relieving so many Americans of the high cost of health care. People are still losing their homes and going bankrupt if they become seriously ill and there are many who fall in the gap of ineligibility. We have here a lack of hope and change.

And yet, where is the concern over the high cost of incarceration? It costs approximately $40,000 a year to house just one inmate and yet schools are closing for lack of available funds. But no one has suggested closing prisons when many are incarcerated due to mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines, “three-strikes” laws and the so-called, war on drugs, which usually means, low-level drug offenders caught with trace amounts of drugs on them, instead of being cited, they are locked up. With an estimated 2.3 million people incarcerated in America and the majority of them are African-American and Hispanic, prison has become the new slave pen. How is it that the U.S. has 5 percent of the world’s population but nearly a quarter of all of its prisoners? Answer: Because they’re Black and Brown people, that’s why. Again, what we have here is a lack of hope and change.

As we all know, segregation is still in play and with the fact of that, we now have what is called,’ the school-to-prison pipeline where mostly inner city children of color are herded from the classroom straight into the juvenile and criminal justice system. They are not to learn, they are to head straight to jail and remain there. That’ll cut down on the need for funding for education especially since the funding for education is being funneled into the criminal justice system. You see any signs of hope and change here? No, just more signs of America up for sale in the form of America’s children for sale to the prison industrial complex.

Although there is no way to accurately count the number of homeless people, those who are attempting to do so, have posted statistics that are shatteringly horrific. According to an article in the Huffington Post, the number of homeless children in America has surged to an all time high and show no signs of abating. More hope and change?

And wasn’t Obama against dumb wars? As opposed to what? Smart wars? All wars are dumb wars because bombing people never solved anything. Ask those pesky ‘terrorists’ that just keep popping up in countries that America has bombed to smithereens and then went back to do it again or never even left to begin with. And let’s not forget the deposing of legitimate leaders if not outright murder of other nation’s leaders. Obama has certainly been heavy-handed with those damn killer drones and it would appear that the innocent are the target because innocent people are targeted for ‘extermination’. Got to keep the warmongers happy. Over 2,400 innocent people are dead because we voted for hope and change and what we got was ‘criminally insane’! Barack Obama, another sell-out, a war criminal, a liar, a hypocrite, a murderer never intended to bring hope or change to the ‘business as usual’ status quo in Washington. Those of us who voted for him are more than likely ashamed that we did so. We were duped because we wanted to believe that there was a chance for change and now we know that there is no hope for change.

Yes, Barack Obama put America up for sale and in the process drenched her with the blood of innocents while the drums of war beat on.
