Transgender Rights, But No Rights for Black People

American hypocrisy

 

 

 

 

As Margaret Kimberley of Black Agenda Report so succinctly states:

“If you are Black in America, “driving, walking, riding a bicycle, being in a public space at the wrong moment, or even calling the police for assistance” can get you killed. President Obama doesn’t care about that, yet he puts the full force of the federal government behind transgender bathroom rights. “Obama loves to wade in on the side of a small segment of white liberal concern instead of helping the people who love them the most.”

“There is nothing new about people being transgender or using the restrooms they choose. They have been doing so for years. In contrast, black people risk death constantly just because they exist in this society. Driving, walking, riding a bicycle, being in a public space at the wrong moment, or even calling the police for assistance can get them killed. Yet Obama’s FBI doesn’t even maintain a record of killings committed by the police.”

Margaret Kimberley could not be more right!

And as I have been stating over and over again, this president has shown nothing but contempt for Black people in America and yet millions willfully remain ignorant to that contempt and disdain that he displays for them.

I recently tackled the subject of this transgender bathroom mess and fell out with a fellow blogger over it and rightly so as once again, the plight of Black people in this shithole gets equated with some transgender issue that is in reality, a non-issue. Real issues like police brutality against Black people, a school-to-prison pipeline, gentrification, mass unemployment and wage stagnation, voting rights, homelessness, mass incarceration and unmitigated poverty remain back burner issues that will never see the light of day for a ‘fix’ by the Feds. And continued ignorance will be spouted out about how Black people should just shut up already and be thankful that we are no longer seeing ‘Colored Only’ signs and be glad that transgender rights are being highlighted and that we must accept this as a ‘win’ for our corner. Never that! Not on my watch!

When I posted “I Am SO Fucking Fed Up With This Transgender Bathroom Shit!” I never thought that one of my readers would post such a disrespectful comment, but ‘humans’ never cease to amaze me with their thoughtlessness, ignorance, racism and obnoxiousness.

Without further ado, here is the comment in question.

Wow, Tubularsock isn’t much of a fan of intolerance. It wasn’t that many years ago that “Negroes” had their OWN public bathrooms and their very own drinking fountains. And all they did was bitch and complain that these facilities were separate.
They even had “Colored Only” signs. Another sign of a privileged class, Tubularsock guesses.
And all Tubularsock heard from “White” people when he attempted to explain those issues was “just get over it”!
And then the Federal Government made an issue of this intolerance and things started to change.
And all Tubularsock heard from “White” people was why isn’t the Federal Government doing more about important issues. And “. . . just why can’t THOSE “Negroes” just be happy for what they’ve got!”

Years ago a nurse friend of Tubularsock explained that “more babies than you’d think”, she said, are born hermaphrodite and at the time of birth many times the doctor will arbitrarily decide (often without even consulting the parents) which sex that child will be assigned.

Today a hermaphrodite is called an “intersex” birth and 1 in ever 2000 births are “intersex” births.

Standard medical treatment has been to look at the genitals, make an arbitrary decision about the gender and then correct it surgically because they are born with both sets!

But now, many are challenging the ethical basis of surgery, knowing that gender identity is complex, and doctors can sometimes get it wrong, not knowing how a child will feel about their gender assignment when they grow up.

The bottom line is not “just get over it” any more than to tell a black child to “just get over it” because you don’t look like Disney’s Blond Headed Cinderella!

Intolerance is NOT what is needed, knowledge and understanding will bring us together and what this world needs more than anything is LOVE!

And here was MY response of which I am SO fucking proud!

“Tubularsock isn’t much of a fan of intolerance. It wasn’t that many years ago that “Negroes” had their OWN public bathrooms and their very own drinking fountains. And all they did was bitch and complain that these facilities were separate.”

Fuck THAT shit! You can consider me to be an ‘intolerant’ homophobe until the cows come home, go back out and come home AGAIN! I don’t fucking care! I am speaking of MY opinion and only MY opinion and once again, since we have been down this road before, if you take exception to what you see in here, you are free to move the hell along and never come this way again! Do you understand this???!!! I don’t give a goddamn for your fucked up opinion on this issue, nor did I seek it! If motherfuckers want to claim that their sex is not what they want it to be, all well and good. But I am sick to pieces of MY tax dollars going to fund erroneous lawsuits to enable some man who can’t fucking figure out what he wants to be from one day to the next, a new bathroom sign just for his confused ass.

The signs for ‘Colored Only’ were not over some ‘gender’ issue and whether or not we were born with male and female body parts. What we have been subjected to in this shithole from the time our ancestors were dragged over here are far more horrific than is the case with a motherfucker born with male and female body parts, “1 in every 2,000 births.” Every single African that was dragged to this shithole to become a slave, was put through an indescribable hell. There was no “1 in every 2,000” Africans had to go through this. Every single goddamn one of them did and their ancestors to this day are following suit. So don’t you sit on your pink ass and compare what happened to our ancestors and what is happening to us to some “1 in every 2,000 births” of some motherfuckers that are born with both male and female body parts and in fact, I don’t even think that is where the problem lies and you don’t either. The problem lies in the fact that it has now become à la mode to claim that a motherfucker was ‘assigned’ a gender that he/she feels is not theirs. No one has lashed their back, shackled, enslaved, tortured or brutalized them for hundreds of years over their female and male body parts and you know this!

So, don’t you dare come all up in here with your “nurse said this” and “nurse said that” about some goddamn shits that may or may not have been born with both male and female body parts because I can damn well believe that this is not at the heart of what we are seeing today!

You will not come up in here and downplay the ‘Colored only’ signs that my ancestors had to deal with and this was AFTER the fact of slavery! No one is enslaving motherfuckers who were born with both male and female body parts! No one is going around burning crosses in the yards of motherfuckers born with both male and female body parts. No Ku Klux Klan was formed for the sole purpose of intimidating, lynching and otherwise fucking up those who were born with both male and female body parts!

Don’t you goddamn EVER come back in here and I fucking mean that and I fucking swear that if I see one more goddamn comment from you, it will be deleted and you can rest assured that not another one will appear here, EVER!

If you want to post about how ‘tolerant’ your ass is, then use YOUR goddamn blog for that purpose, but in here, I am all about Blackness! And if you can’t understand that, too goddamn bad! Get ta steppin’, you pink assed motherfucker!!!!

Now then, I wonder what it is that gives Caucasians the right to think they can just overstep the bounds of propriety and just come out and say whatever they damn well please? Oh, that’s right! It’s called ‘white privilege’. Well in here, check your ‘white privilege’ at the goddamn door or I will check it for you and relish doing so! As you can see from the above comment. I have told you time and time again, that I don’t care if I write to my goddamn self, I will not have this shit in my face from Caucasians who have no right to speak on what they absolutely know nothing about.

You have no firsthand knowledge of what it means to be a Black person in AmeriKKKa and for you to come up in here and speak on this as though you are some sort of authority tells me all I need to know about your racist ass! It tells me more than I want to know which is why when you do so, you will get ta steppin’! I don’t give a good goddamn for followers. A damn war is being waged against us and in the midst of battle, the last thing I need to see is a comment of that sort from the likes of you! Shits like you are the reason why I am in the midst of battle. And make no mistake, your professions of “I am not a racist!” don’t cut no ice with me because shits like you sit up and condone what other racists say and do because if you didn’t, maybe so many ‘openly’ racist motherfuckers would no longer consider it to be a la mode to continue to parade down the goddamn street in white sheets. Maybe, it would no longer be business as usual in this shithole of denying Black people, access to good paying jobs, decent health care, a decent education, drinkable water and flourishing neighborhoods. But all we hear about is how bad Detroit and New Orleans and Chicago and Baltimore are doing. Like you don’t know why! But you’re ‘all good’ because you pronounced to all and sundry that “I am not a racist!” Like hell, you’re not! You are the epitome of racism and to suggest otherwise would be a goddamn lie! It is eating you from the inside out and you couldn’t die from it soon enough to suit me!

And yet, you want to sit somewhere on your pink asses and preach to us about LOVE?! Are you fucking serious? Since when have you gone to Ku Klux Klan Central and preached to them about LOVE? Since when did you go to the Aryan Brotherhood and preach to them about love? You know just what the fuck you would get for your worthless ass efforts. But you have no problem coming at me with that bullshit as though you are doing me a favor by telling me about LOVE! Something of which you know absolutely nothing about because if you did, you’d be preaching it to your damn self. But you don’t! Because your damn worthless ass ain’t fucking human. You are no different from the motherfucker that dons a sheet. You are one and the same! I am fighting against your ass the same as I am theirs. You are both two peas in a pod! And you mean, you didn’t have a clue as to what would happen if you spouted your racist ass bullshit to me? Did you fucking think that I was the one to put up with it? Really? Yeah! Bring some more filthy racist ass shit up in here and see just what the fuck you get for your efforts. If you don’t slither the fuck up out of here on your own, I’ll bounce your candy ass on up outta here. Count on it!

I Am Not A Shell Of A Human Lacking Humanity!

no humanity

Strong hands rest on gently rounded hips,
smooth dark skin and thick, full lips.
Tightly curled hair, my crowning glory;
a picture perfect, wordless story.

Sculpted features, carved by time,
upon my face, not one wrinkle or line.
Legs that stand firm to bear my weight,
and a Teflon coating that repels all hate.

Torn from Africa and brought to these shores,
compared and found lacking to pale-skinned whores.
Desire in the eyes of sickly white men,
with fetid breath and reeking of gin.

Sent to the fields and whipped every day,
trying to understand why I’m treated this way.
No hope of returning to the home that I loved.
I’m poked and prodded, pushed and shoved.

Stripped and sold and draped in chains,
told that I’m an animal and that I have no brains.
Am I a beast of burden or the white man’s slave?
To him, I am both until I’m lowered in my grave.

He will have to whip me, both day and night.
And still he’ll not crush me nor dim my light.
It glows from within and it will not die.
My bloodline will continue to multiply.

I will not worship his god; a deity of hate,
nor confine my soul to the white man’s fate.
That is not who I am and never will be,
I am not a shell of a human lacking humanity.

I absolutely refuse to bow down and worship the white man’s god! How can I worship that which produced filth that would enslave my ancestors and me, commit unspeakable atrocities against us and then have the unmitigated gall to then turn around and head inside a church to bow down and worship a so-called, god ‘of love’?You cannot have it both ways. Love cannot come from hate and whatever hatred is praying to, it is not a ‘god’ of love! You are being played! Stop playing the fool!

The ‘white’ man’s god is not a god of ‘love’ if it produced him, he who is filled with nothing but hate! Negro people, where is your capacity for critical thinking? How can you emulate the ‘white’ man’s ways when you know it doesn’t make any sense to follow him over the cliff? How can you know what he has done to your ancestors and is also doing to you and yet, you take up his habits, his beliefs, his justifications for why he does what he does and worship the same false idols? Are you insane? Because that would seem to be the case from where I sit. You dutifully bow your heads at the table and pray to a ‘god’ that produced hate, bigotry, racism, prejudice and a false sense of fake assed superiority designed to keep you in your place when that filth that has you believing that you are inferior is rotten to the core?

And yet, you still believe that evil personified is going to save you if only you will stand in line and vote for that which has been trying Its damned best to wipe you out of existence? Go ahead and continue playing the stooge for something that is less than an animal and is planning your genocide at all times!

Stolen From Africa!

stolen from Africa

Stolen from Africa,
my screams pierce the air.
 I  am left with only memories.
 You destroyed my essence
and claimed your victory.

With no conscience to guide you,
you invaded my body.
I am your slave
with nothing of my own;
not even my name.

My children are torn
 from their mother’s arms.
Sold like cattle
and raped at will.
Oh christian’s god,
where is thy mercy?

In the gathering darkness;
shielded by the night,
I look up at the stars
for guidance home.

Oh christian’s god,
where is thy mercy?
I am whipped and chained;
beaten and broken!

My spirit is trapped
in this hellish nightmare
of porcelain creatures
who crave my soul.
Oh christian’s god,
forsake me not!

It is crystal clear to me that the christian’s god did indeed deny mercy to the slaves. I guess seeing as how the christians thought of the slaves as something less than human, they and their ‘god’ considered the slaves to be beyond redemption. And to think that we are to believe that christians sailed to the ‘new world’ to escape religious persecution only to turn around and do far worse to innocent people.

Continue to re-write history and spread your lies and I will continue to expose the vicious hypocrisy, cruelty, barbarity and vileness of the ‘christian’ slavers! 

And Black folks, you sit somewhere, moaning and wailing and singing to a ‘god’ that is depicted in the very image of slavers. They brainwashed you well. You sit and look at pictures posted in your church of their likeness and you have the nerve to think that this filth wants you anywhere near them in their god’s fake ass heavenly dwelling? They don’t even want to live beside you on this planet, so what makes you think that they want you in a mansion in the sky beside them? Hell! For the most part, you’re even buried in different cemeteries. And you’re going to live beside that shit in their fake ass ‘heaven’? Get real! I cannot believe that you have the nerve to wonder why a coroner is counting and digging bullets out of your ‘loved’ ones ass! And don’t forget to keep those ‘movements’ coming. Fifty years from now, you will have ‘moved’ to exactly where you are now.

Happy Slaves Bake Birthday Cake For George Washington!

slave baking book

I’m a happy slave in America!
I bake cakes for presidents.
I ain’t got no smarts or schooling
 and when I talk, I don’t make sense.

But I’m as happy as can be
 ’cause I’m baking cakes for presidents.
So, when next you re-write history
 tell no lies and I mean no offense.

If you can’t take the truth,
 that I baked cakes for presidents,
 then that shit is all on you
 because slavery is my defense.

How many lies will you tell?
That I came of my own free will?
You with Pinocchio’s nose,
 let me present you with my bill!

For over four hundred years,
I’ve been owed for baking that cake.
And as I stand in shackles and chains,
I am a testament to the truth you fake!

Happy slaves? Goddamn it! For real? Get the fuck outta here! First, we had textbook publisher McGraw-Hill stating that Africans willingly immigrated to America to work. They were not dragged to AmeriKKKa to become slaves. According to McGraw-Hill, the Africans came here alongside the Irish and other immigrants seeking long-term good paying jobs. You see, this version absolves whitey white asses of knowing that their ancestors were depraved rejects from hell; they are too but that fact should not be bandied about. You see, slavery, rape, whips, chains, shackles and torture don’t have quite the nice ring to it and so tone that shit down. Smooth it over. Make slavery into something that it was not. Make it into a resort. Yeah! That sounds better. Slavery was nothing more than a resort and those Black folks at the resort were as happy as can be, just a baking cakes and some more shit!

Now, let’s cut the bullshit!

Apparently, there is a new book out titled, A Birthday Cake For George Washington and the book ‘suggests’ that a slave named Hercules was just so goddamn happy to be slaving away making a birthday cake for an old wooden toothed bastard by the name of George Washington, that he just could not contain himself! With his skills, he ‘bettered’ himself and should have been proud of it. Oh no! He was not the usual run-of-the-mill slave that had no skills at all and so therefore, had not a thing to say for themselves, no Hercules, the cake baker for George Washington was a cut above the rest and his life was practically lived like he was one of the ‘gentry’. Like hell!

George Washington’s overseer was just as vicious and cruel as any other overseer; just as vicious, depraved and barbaric as today’s goddamn overseers that are stationed in prisons and jails all across this shithole. We are to constantly get bombarded by these atrocious lies; spoon fed fake ass shit and told to eat it up, swallow it down and beg for more. I am fed the fuck up with white motherfuckers who continuously water down history to suit their own fucked up agenda. They will pass shit off as caviar and think nothing of it so long as it makes them look better. Newsfuckingflash! There ain’t a goddamn jewel, cloth of satin or plastic surgeon that could turn you filthy ass bastards into something fit for hell!

Never!

Black soldiers shedding tears

I refuse to pick up a weapon and fight for AmeriKKKa.
Never will I defend a nation of hypocrites.
Call me unpatriotic and it pleases me no end.
Why should I fuel the war machine of plutocrats?

When the world looks to America for leadership
what it gets in return is air strikes and drones.
How can other nations applaud this one,
when America has tapped into all nation’s phones?

Has this nation ever not been at war within itself?
So many mothers are scared for their sons and get worried.
What about the hate that carries a badge and a gun?
That is why so many Black and Brown bodies are buried.

Why do you fight for a country that hates you?
What is the matter with your fucked up thinking?
Do you know your history in this shithole?
Black people, you are not swimming, you are sinking.

You say the past should stay past and be buried.
Tell that to the Black men locked up in prisons.
What say you about the shackles on their feet?
Remember, like you, they too had ambitions.

What the fuck are you crying about? You fucking signed up to get shipped out to kill for some shit that would just as soon kill you as look at you and you want to fight THEIR wars? What’s that got to do with you? You’re not fighting for democracy and freedom because YOU ain’t got none! Where the fuck is democracy and freedom for Black people in AmeriKKKA? Unless you think that killing Black men and beating the hell out of Black women and raping Black women all across AmeriKKKA is some form of democracy and freedom, and if that’s the case, then you need your head examined. Again, what the fuck are you crying for? You know the goddamn score!
