Trump To Dead Soldiers Widow, “He Knew What He Was Signing Up For When He Enlisted.”

 

Donald Trump speaks the truth AGAIN and AGAIN the fallout is unbelievable!

President Trump told the widow of one of the soldiers killed in Niger that he “knew what he was getting into,” said U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Miami), who said she was in the car where the phone call was received.

Army Sgt. La David Johnson was purportedly in Niger advising local troops on how to counter Boko Haram and al Qaeda when he and three other American soldiers were leaving a meeting whereupon they were shot dead. So much for their role as ‘advisers’. Now, we are not focusing on exactly why the government of Niger is in need of America’s military to advise them on how to handle their own business, issues or problems that’s got nothing whatsoever to do with America. We are to focus on what Donald Trump is alleged to have said to a widow about her dead husband.

Black-assed, dead Army Sgt. La David Johnson had no business in Niger in the first place. What happens in Niger is Niger’s business and yet, Sgt. Johnson was in Niger minding Niger’s business and in the process, got himself shot dead. Is America at war with Niger? Has anyone in Niger sent a missile to America? Has a ‘terrorist’ from Niger escaped Niger’s officials, boarded a plane, landed in America and promptly shot up hundreds of people as was the case with the ‘white’ terrorist that did exactly that in Las Vegas a few weeks ago? Uh…that would be a resounding “NO!”

So, yes indeed, Sgt. Johnson got exactly what he signed on the dotted line for. He signed on the dotted line to KILL OR BE KILLED and so no one should be surprised at all that Sgt. Johnson was killed. He had a gun, did he not? He was taught how to use that gun, was he not? And so whose fault is it that the other guy got the upper hand on Sgt. Johnson? It was Sgt. Johnson’s fault. No one told him to have eyes in the back of his head? No one told him that everyone he meets is presumably an enemy? So, keep your head low and your gun ready? Too bad, so sad, shit happens, right? Right!

Now, let’s all get bent-out-of-shape because Donald Trump told Sgt. Johnson’s widow that he “knew what he was getting into,” because Sgt. Johnson’s widow did not know did she? Of course she did! Did she think that Sgt. Johnson’s checks were issued on his behalf for reparations? No! Did she think Sgt. Johnson’s checks were issued on his behalf because he was providing modeling services for the U.S. military? No! Get real! Sgt. Johnson and his family were housed, fed and received medical coverage because Sgt. Johnson signed his body over to the elites killing squads known as the U.S. military. He signed any rights he had to live over to the elites when he signed the dotted line to “kill or be killed.” The elites don’t care about Sgt. Johnson, nor do they care about his widow and his children who are left behind to mourn their father who would rather be over in Niger minding Niger’s business over minding his own. No one forced Sgt. Johnson to sign on the dotted line. No one held a ‘gun’ to his head and made him fly over to Niger to ‘advise’ Niger’s officials as to how to fight who the hell knows who!

Did Sgt. Johnson know what he was signing up for when he enlisted? Damn right, he did! And for that he got just what every dead soldier receives; he got a flag-draped coffin. Now, whether or not his family received letter or a phone call from his commander-in-chief is anyone’s guess, but he got just what he signed on the dotted line for. So, if you don’t expect to get shot dead when you sign on the dotted line to “kill or be killed,” then don’t sign on the dotted line. I do understand that Americans are some stupid shits, but even this should be crystal clear to you. And if it looks to you as though those who send you to foreign lands to “kill or be killed,” don’t give a damn about you, it is because they don’t give a damn about you! Donald Trump was a draft dodger because he was not about to risk his neck for not a goddamn thing because why should his ass suit up and fight the elites wars? He thumbed his nose at “risking his life for love of country, freedom, liberty and justice;” because he knew what you can’t seem to understand in that these are mere useless words that have no meaning for the likes of Donald Trump and the elites who send other peoples children to die for no cause at all. This country has never stood for freedom, liberty and justice because this country has never understood what those words mean and so just how can you fight for something that has no bearing on a country you were born in? You cannot. You are not fighting to keep America safe. You are fighting for American hegemony; you are fighting for elites to own and control the world just as they own and control you! But because they feed you patriotic bullshit, you lap that shit up, swallow it down and beg for more and then get pissed off because someone stated the obvious to you; that you “knew what you were signing up for when you enlisted.”

You fight for something that never was. You are killed for nothing! There is no honor in dying for hypocrisy and that is exactly what you are dying for; for America to continue to reign supreme when it comes to hypocrisy. How can a nation that is filled with hatred, white supremacy, illegitimacy, stolen lands, stolen people, bigotry, prejudice, Jim Crow, slavery, racism and mass murder ever be synonymous with freedom, justice and liberty? It cannot, not when a gnat couldn’t wipe its ass on the amount of freedom, justice and liberty that can be found in America. You die because you are too stupid to see beyond the fake ass displays of patriotism; a flag that is literally dripping with the blood of Indians and slaves. You die because you are too blind to see past the first stanza of the national anthem; an anthem that pays homage to slavery, an anthem that you are supposed to sing proudly as you are led off to fight people you have never met and who bear you no ill will but yet, you expect them to not want to kill those who are in their lands minding their business. You die because you are too willing to be a tool for those who wouldn’t spit on you if you were on fire to help put it out but for whom you willingly and knowingly and with malice forethought sign up to do their dirty work and then when you are killed, they tell your family members, “He knew what he was signing up for when he enlisted.” Oh yes, he knew! And Sgt. Johnson signed up any way.

“So Mrs. Johnson, when your baby is born, tell your baby that his father died for hypocrisy. His father died for nothing. His father died to protect slavery, stolen lands, stolen people, hypocrisy, rape, torture, enslavement, whips, shackles, chains, prejudice, bigotry, racism, white supremacy, capitalism, neo-liberalism, American hegemony. Yeah! You tell him/her that!”

 

And for Black folks to take up arms in defense of this shithole called America is a disgrace to your slave ancestors who fought against the Americans; who fought with English soldiers for their freedom. Francis Scott Key who purportedly wrote the national anthem; the star-spangled banner, had his ass handed to him by a battalion of Colonial Marines; Black men who were fighting on the side of the English. Key was so pissed off that he got his comeuppance at the hands of Black men that he wrote, in favor of slavery, in one of the stanzas of the star-spangled banner, the stanza that you never heard sung by Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Ray Charles, Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Luther Vandross, Beyoncé and others. Oh, no! You never heard this stanza being sung, but you had damn well better believe that those who sang the first stanza knew about this one!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
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.

At Black people, especially those who should know better, I can only shake my head over their willful acceptance of third class citizenship in a country that continues to view them as slaves and will forever do so. You perform for Massa today just as your ancestors did hundreds of years ago, just as Sgt. Johnson did until he got what he signed up for. “No refuge could save the hireling and the slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.” No, indeed it could not! Just you ask Sgt. Johnson and his widow!

Race Relations Are Deteriorating

 

Nooooo! Say it ain’t so!

A majority of the nearly two dozen poll respondents reached by Reuters, including Cartagena, Mami and Dees, said they have recently sensed an unsettling rise in racial hostility – or at least a greater willingness by some Americans to express it.

It’s not just minorities who say they’re feeling unnerved. Dees, the painting contractor from Many, Louisiana, a town of about 2,700 people, said he sensed rising anger among black residents after Trump’s unexpected victory.

It did not take the election of Donald Trump to get me to speak out on race relations. I have been speaking on race relations for years. When you drag people from a continent, enslave them, supposedly ‘free’ them only to make sure that there is no way for them to compete on a level playing field for jobs, housing; the whole nine yards and you systematically incarcerate them by the millions, thus ensuring that this country will always have slave labor, what did you think was going to happen?

When nothing has been done to reign in hate groups by at least calling them ‘terror organizations’, what did you think was going to happen? When you display only racism, bigotry and prejudice to a group of people who are in AmeriKKKa through no fault of their own, did you think that they would grow to love their oppressors? Let me clear up one thing, white folks, the majority of us hate you with a passion that words cannot do justice to and each and every single day we long for your death and we hope that you die in the most horrible way possible. That’s the truth. As much as you hate us for being here thanks to your lazy ass ancestors who had no work ethic at all and hence, that is the reason we are here, your hatred for us pales in comparison to ours for you. Just because some coonhead sellouts will lie down with you, wed with you and give you accolades does not mean that the vast majority of us fall into that category. The vast majority of us despise and loathe you with every fiber of our being. Yeah! Let that sink in. Let it marinate because you see, we have been seething for over 400 years now and like a kettle that’s brought to boil, we’re likely to boil over like this dude did.

Fresno shooting rampage: Suspect who shot dead 3 wanted to kill as many [white] people as possible, police say.

Police said the man who killed three people on a shooting spree in downtown Fresno, California, on Tuesday while shouting “Allahu Akbar” wanted to kill as many [white] people as possible after a warrant was released for his arrest in the murder of a motel security guard last week.

Muhammad went by the nickname “Black Jesus” and has made posts against white people and the government on his Facebook page.

On what appeared to be Muhammad’s Facebook page, he repeatedly posted “#LetBlackPeopleGo” and encouraged “black warriors” to “mount up.” A flurry of posts emerged in the past day.

And another Black warrior did ‘mount up’ and shot dead 5 KKKops in Dallas, TX.

DALLAS — The heavily armed sniper who gunned down police officers in downtown Dallas, leaving five of them dead, specifically set out to kill as many white officers as he could, officials said Friday. He was a military veteran who had served in Afghanistan, and he kept an arsenal in his home that included bomb-making materials.

Sound familiar? You bet it does! What is with these Black men who set out to kill ‘white’ people and only ‘white’ people? What could they possibly have against those who constantly speak of freedom, rights, justice and humanitarianism? White folks, shut the fuck up because you are the worst hypocrites slithering and crawling across this planet spreading your vileness and your atrocities with relish. You have managed to fuck up an entire planet and yet, you think your shit don’t stink and that it’s such an atrocity when someone turns around and does to you what you are doing to an entire planet. Keep sitting back and thinking that the chickens are not going to come home to roost all up your depraved asses. What you have read here is only the beginning because believe me, people with nothing left to lose are some dangerous motherfuckers and you have made sure that millions of people have nothing left to lose while you sit back and pour salt into the wounds of those you have enslaved, made poverty stricken and homeless but who are here through no fault of their own. What god you lay claim to is no god because you’ve made yourselves, god and you use a non-existent god to keep every other group pliable to what you’re doing to them. On some of us, it is no longer working and this is fast catching on.

You can no longer lull us into believing in your fictional lord and savior because how in the world is the likes of you heading to some paradise after you croak what with all that foul shit smeared on your funky asses for all the world to see? There ain’t enough prayers or psalms in the Bible to get you through even your fake ass pearly gates because the evil that is you would have long since singed any precious metal or glow right off a pearl and off of anything else you’ve managed to vomit up. Death is finally stalking your ass and you don’t know when it’s coming, but it’s coming. So, go right ahead and continue wreaking havoc across this shithole and the world and what you give is most definitely what you are going to receive! It’s going to be the gift that keeps on giving. And just so you don’t forget, re-read these block quoted words. And just keep in mind that “rising anger among black residents!”

Dees, the painting contractor from Many, Louisiana, a town of about 2,700 people, said he sensed rising anger among black residents after Trump’s unexpected victory.

A “rising anger” indeed! Yeah! We’re goddamn tired of printing signs and wearing out the soles of our shoes waiting on you to get something you’ve never had and never will get; a heart, compassion, empathy, sensitivity, thoughtfulness, humanity, love and mercy. Not one of those words is synonymous with ‘whites’. ‘Christian love and charity’, my goddamn ass! You don’t even believe your own lies. So why should we?  But it’s quite obvious that we’re not standing for your shit anymore! This is war! Ain’t no goddamn peace! You’ve seen to that!

Another Day, Another Blog Fight!

 

I just cannot let things go. And I know that I cannot go on a one woman ‘set the record straight’ crusade, but on the other hand, I just gotta call out mess when I see it. And so, without further ado here is another chapter in my never ending quest to awaken the brain dead.

I was reading a blog post titled, “Is The Media The Real Enemy of America?… Take a Closer Look…” and I took exception to some of what I read and I posted a comment. And as usual, things deteriorate after I comment. I wonder, why is that? I really don’t. I know why. That was rhetorical, of course. But before I digress any further, this is what I took exception to.

Reince Priebus, White House chief of staff, firmly suggested we take seriously Trump’s authoritarian statement of the media being the enemy of America. In actuality, these journalists who Trump so routinely lambasts, the result of his fantasy notion of a dark covert operation enacted to depose him as the reigning king, are in fact, not our enemies at all.

Seriously? “The media is not our enemy?” I almost broke down and wept over this little jewel. Since when has the media spouted anything other than recycled garbage? The media, as we know, is owned, lock, stock and barrel by a few corporate moguls who are quite determined that the American populace should remain clueless and unaware of what is really going on. We have been fed fake ass news for decades. It is only with the advent of the internet that we have been able to, thanks to alternative news sites, get some idea of what is actually going down. The ‘mainstream media’ has never been our friend and for once, Trump was right, the media is our enemy!

Below is the comment that I posted to the blog.

This entire post is absolute hypocrisy and an absurdity. The media is anything but fair and balanced. The media is owned by a handful of corporate moguls. There are no independent, unbiased newspapers, TV news shows and the like and I just love the last sentence:

“we must discern between what our country has always stood for since the day our forefathers set foot on our golden shores, as opposed to Trump’s vision of America”

You mean when some men and their women who were fed up with paying taxes in England embarked on a journey to find another land to lay claim to, kill off the majority of the original inhabitants and then go in search of free ‘slave’ labor to build up said stolen land? Is this what you meant by ‘our forefathers set foot on golden shores’? Because my forefathers were slaves and this shore was not so ‘golden’ to them since the ‘forefathers’ you speak of were themselves, slave-owning hypocrites who loudly spoke of ‘living as free men rather than die as slaves’ all the while brandishing a whip over the heads of their slaves. Talk about hypocrisy, this is the very definition.

I have never seen so many ‘white’ people up in arms over what epitomizes them in all my days. Trump is every single last one of you if you were to be honest. Look in the mirror, Trump is staring right back at you! And this is why when you look at pictures of the protests, hardly any ‘Black’ faces are in the crowds. We deal with all of you ‘Trumps’ on a daily basis and see no need to protest Trump. What would be the point? He is everywhere we turn and not just in the Oval Office.

———————————————————————————

Of course, all hell broke loose after that! And below is the response to my comment.

Since you have chosen to turn my blog into a racial issue, I feel it only fair to respond. I do have to ask first. Is this what you always do? Sounds like maybe. Contrary to your belief, I do not see Trump when I look in a mirror. I see the opposite or I would not be so adamant in my stance against virtually everything he stands for. It would appear to me, since you have lumped me under your single myopic category of “all white people”, perhaps you are the one who needs to spend some time in self-reflection. You’ve made your racial overtones quite obvious even though the intent of the article had nothing to do with racism. Yes, I fully understand there were slaves in early America, just as there were in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe, but to hear you explain yourself, every white person alive today is somehow responsible for these atrocious sins of the past. I agree the actions of our forefathers were inhumane in this respect and it makes me quite ill to think that any human, anywhere, possessed such a high level of immorality as to enslave another human, regardless their color. Did you realize that many of the Irish were also held as slaves? Some of them were my relatives so I guess I should lash out at people living centuries later as well. But I won’t though. I am astute enough to realize these people had nothing to do with that, and I am certain if I were to ask them, they would agree how horrible it was.

I prefer to think the world has moved forward since those days, but some people can’t seem to get past things that happened way before they were even born. Our forefathers were wrong. So was the rest of the world at that time. Despite the fact, they came to America to escape what they could no longer contend with in their countries of origin, and yes, because of the historical times they lived in, slavery was an unfortunate part of that. It took many years to right the wrong of slavery, and many “white people” died in the battles for their unconditional freedom. In fact, most of the soldiers who gave their lives for the abolishment of slavery were white.

I served in the military for 14 years and fought side by side with people of all colors. We had each other’s backs and we never questioned where we individually came from, what our religion was, or where our ancestors were born. None of that mattered. We were simply people, united together for the same causes. We had no vision of black versus white. Most veterans don’t, but I’m sure you never served so you probably don’t realize that.

As far as the media goes, as I have written about before, they all lean either left or right which is why it is so imperative to read more than one sources take on something before determining an educated appraisal of the truth. They all report about the same things so it shouldn’t be all that difficult for you to do.

Please. Next time you choose to respond to one of my blogs, how about staying on topic and not taking things where they were never intended to go. Trump does that.

And just so you know, I, or anyone else for that matter, cannot change the color of our shoreline.

Peace to you and yours. And I truly mean that.

————————————————————————————————————

And the blog author did not finish there. Another post was put up titled, “Racial Tension in Trump’s America. What Are You Going To Do About It?” and I got an honorable mention. I am feeling quite humbled. I am such an inspiration to many, it would seem. I just love it.

In a previous blog, I made reference to America’s golden shores as being the landing place of our forefathers, using a description I have heard repeated many times throughout my 65 years, not giving the phrase a second thought. However. America’s forefathers were not the focus of the blog, and it had not a thing to do with our shoreline. It was about the media. Who to believe. Who not to believe. It’s a question on all of our minds.

As has become increasingly the norm in this year of your higher power 2017, one reader chose to hang on the words “golden shores”, using this strictly literary phrase as ammunition for twisting the media related blog into a racial onslaught. Needless to say, I was caught way off guard.

I declare, I seem to catch people off guard all the time! I am SO bad!

This person stated how the golden shores were not so golden for slaves who arrived chained and shackled in the hulls of huge sailing vessels. How can anyone with half a heart disagree? I certainly can’t. Maybe Ben Carson can since he believes these “immigrant” slaves were so full of hopes and dreams they were about to burst. The person’s response did not stop there, as you will read in a direct quote below. All this being said, I can in no way assume responsibility for the sins of anyone’s past.

No, he cannot be responsible for the ‘sins of anyone’s past’ but he can be responsible for when the present is a reflection of the past and there really is no difference between the two. So, I shall just post my response to this.

————————————————————————————————–

Well, I guess I should thank you for the honorary mention but there has been racial tension in America long before Trump stepped foot inside the Oval Office and if anyone is not aware of this, then all they need do is to unbury their head from in the sand. Racist drug policies are responsible for why 2.3 million mostly Black men and women are cooling their heels in ‘for profit’ prisons.

When crack was first introduced into ‘Black communities’ decades ago, there was no hue and cry over this. It was decided that a ‘War on Drugs’ would be declared and those who were addicted would be locked up along with those who sold the drugs. Now, along comes heroin in rural ‘white’ America, and now, the addiction of white folks is a most horrible ‘medical’ epidemic. It is now time for the CDC to investigate and report its findings on what is killing ‘white’ folks all across America; especially in areas that normally are not perceived as problematic, unlike the inner cities. Heroin has been problematic for the city of Baltimore for decades and no hue and cry was raised over this because of who resides in Baltimore; namely Black people. But everyone gets their panties in a bunch when drugs start killing ‘whites’ and don’t lock them up, get them some help.

Everything in America IS about race and there is no escaping that fact, if your head’s not buried in the sand, that is. You cannot escape this. And I also noticed how you go on and on about your military service. I would never, ever thank anyone of any skin tone for their so-called ‘service to this country’ because what service would that be? Heading over to foreign lands to kill people who have personally done you no harm? Operating a drone from thousands of miles away from a target that’s been declared, a ‘bug’ and watching a ‘bug splat’ once that drone has struck its target and those surrounding it which has also included innocent women and children attending wedding parties in Yemen and Afghanistan?

And if anyone is unsure as to why America’s military is still in Afghanistan, then, please feel free to read any one of my many posts about the fact that poppy production has skyrocketed in Afghanistan since U.S. and NATO forces arrived and took over. Please feel free to read my post, “The War In Afghanistan Is Not Over!” and please, don’t stop there.

I suppose you have never heard the word ‘gentrification’ and so you don’t know what that means. Gentrification is when rich ‘white’ folks declare an inner city, that once housed mostly Black folks, to be the new ‘promised land’ for them and so they promptly increase rents by building high-end condos, thus making it impossible for those who used to reside there to continue. Washington, D.C. is no longer known as ‘Chocolate City’ for this very reason. The Black people who used to live in D.C. have had to either become homeless or flee to southern states and I do know that many of them did head south and right into even more deep-seated racism because I am from the south and so I know about this, first hand. The Black people who remain in D.C. are in homeless shelters because D.C. has always been their home and they cannot think of going anywhere else. Besides, what would be the point when gentrification is rearing its ugly head everywhere?

The Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Brotherhood and other skinhead groups did not just start up when Trump was elected. And who instigated the racial tensions that result from Klan marches through main streets in cities in America? If slavery and all it entailed is over and done with, then why was there a need for a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his non-violence stance of marching to gain Civil Rights for Black people? And who shot him? If whites were not so racist and racism was actually annihilated with the so-called ending of slavery, then there would have been no Jim Crow laws on the books. There would have been no ‘colored only’ signs and Selma-to-Montgomery marching, Black church bombings and I suppose Dylann Roof is just a figment of my imagination, but isn’t he the one who went inside a church and shot it up and killed nine Black churchgoers? I do believe this happened long before Donald Trump was residing in the White House. And Tamir Rice was gunned down two seconds after ‘white’ cops showed up as he was playing with a toy gun in a park and yet whites take their children to gun ranges and it has been reported that a white child shot the gun range instructor, but no one shot a white child holding a gun, did they? But I suppose you think that Tamir Rice would have been just fine if he had taken his toy pistol to a gun range. Yeah, I’d buy that.

So no, I’m not the one who is perpetuating racism, bigotry and prejudice. We all know who is but you don’t like what you see when you look in the mirror and that is not on me. You own this and you know it. I cannot deny you a loan because I don’t own a bank. I cannot deny you housing because I don’t own an apartment building. I cannot experiment on you because I am not a doctor. But all of these things happen to us because we, ourselves were owned and as we all know, the slaves were kept dumb on purpose and what has changed because even you must have heard of the school-to-prison pipeline whereas inner city children are being sent straight from the classroom to a jail cell because education in inner cities is sadly lacking and that is why private schools are all the rage among whites who can afford to send their children to those schools, Black people cannot because we are busily fighting against discrimination in the form of loans at banks called ‘predatory lending’ whereas Wells Fargo deliberately steered prime mortgage loan borrowers who were Black to subprime mortgage loans even though they qualified for prime mortgage loans and those who worked for Wells Fargo called the Black customers, ‘Mud people’ and called the bad loans they gave them, “Ghetto Loans.” Now, how is that on us? I could go on and on, but some people, like you, refuse to see what is right in front of you because when you do, you must then acknowledge your role in all of this because believe me, those who enslaved my ancestors, their progeny still have that same mindset today. You are one and the same. And I stand by that statement.

You titled this post, “Racial Tension in Trump’s America. What Are You Going To Do About It?” and so am I to believe that my comment on one of your previous posts is the reason for this? I am not that naïve.

—————————————————————————————————————————————–

Let me just add that I don’t go looking to get into arguments. I really don’t. And I am not at all trying to be confrontational. What I am tired of is the fact that when we look around us, we cannot help but see that many of our problems stem from the fact that the more things change, the more they stay the same. If ‘white’ people were in fact any different from those they are descended from, would this country be in the condition it is in today? Slavery did not go anywhere. Prison is the new slave pen and cops are the slave patrols because there are millions of Black people locked up behind bars and for what? Because they got high? Because they sold a dime bag of weed? Uh…no! It is because the ‘whites’ still maintain that Black people should toil for nothing. ‘Whites’ still maintain that Black people are not truly human. And why to this very day, do ‘whites’ have a problem with our identity? They cannot figure out if they should call us niggers, negroes, colored, African-Americans or Blacks. Why is that? How many labels or identifiers have the whites had in the past four hundred plus years? We are still dealing with labels and identifiers but we are to believe that we are being treated equally because the ‘whites of today are so different from their ancestors?

Why is that if we have come so far since the first slave ships arrived on the shores of this stolen land? If today’s ‘whites’ are so different from their ancestors, then why has the Klan not disbanded? Why are we still watching Klan members march down main streets in ‘post-slavery/racial’ America? Why is it that every day some ‘white’ cop is beating the shit out of an unarmed Black man, woman and child? Why is it that every single time the U.S. Department of Justice gets off its ass long enough to investigate police departments all across America, the U.S. Department of Justice comes back with a ‘scathing’ report that states what we all know; that the police department investigated was rife with legitmate police brutality complaints, police misconduct, racial profiling and the list is endless and these ‘crimes’ are overwhelmingly against descendants of slaves? Which brings me to another point, if you want to call me something, then call me what I am, a descendant of slaves because that is exactly what I am. But you won’t do that because it reminds you of how I came to be here and you want me to believe that my ancestors immigrated here alongside yours. You’re even trying to re-write history books to include this. Just ask Mc-Graw Hill textbook publishers.

So, yeah…let’s keep spreading the lies that slavery is over and racism exists only because I want to blame all ‘white’ people today for what their ancestors put into play hundreds of years ago. No, I am blaming you for continuing to perpetuate what your ancestors put into play because if you weren’t still doing it, then why is there a school-to-prison pipeline? Why are those cops who are your brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, mothers and fathers killing mine? Why is there gentrification? Why was crack just fine when it was introduced into Black neighborhoods and incarceration was touted as the cure but now that ‘whites’ are overdosing and dying of heroin, that is a medical condition that needs some understanding and rehab? Why are the slave patrols, now known as cops, not found guilty of murder when they kill innocent Black men, women and children? Why are millions of Black men and women sitting in ‘for-profit’ prisons? Why is TV ‘whitewashed’ just as (HIS)tory is? Why are Black people the continued subjects of medical experimentation? Just ask Johns Hopkins Hospital why they are being sued for a lead paint study whereas they only used Black inner city children and this occurred recently? And why did they conduct experiments on Henrietta Lacks’ cancer cells without her knowledge? Why? Because she was a Black woman, but in the eyes of today’s ‘whites’, she was still not human and her relatives are also suing the hell out of Johns Hopkins Hospital. So, don’t give me any bullshit about my throwing you lot in with each other because if you did not belong there, we would not be in the condition we are in today, still enslaved!

And one final observation, why throw in that little message about there having been slavery in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe?

 Yes, I fully understand there were slaves in early America, just as there were in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe

That does in no way negate the fact of slavery in America. I am not in Africa, the UK or Europe,  I am in America and so my scope is limited as to what I can speak of  in Africa, the UK, and throughout Europe. So, I guess what you are saying is that since there was enough slavery to go around, why shouldn’t America take it up as well? Oh, we all know the answer to that. America was damn sure as hell not about to take the ‘high road’ and still hasn’t!

America’s unspeakable problem: Whites Speaking on ‘African-American’s Crime Rates

 

stolen from Africa

I was reading a post of a fellow blogger that I follow and this caption caught my eye:

America’s unspeakable problem: African-American’s crime rates

Breitbart is not the kind of news service I rely on, but occasionally even a blind squirrel finds a nut, as in this Nov 2015 story by Jerome Hudson: “5 Devastating Facts About Black-on-Black Crime“.

“In 2012, white males were 38% of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6% of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders. In other words: black people -– at just a fifth of the size — committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.

“The figures above highlight a horrific truth that black racialists and white liberals routinely ignore: Lawbreaking black Americans, young black males particularly, put themselves in close proximity to (mostly white male) police officers at rates sometimes five to 10 times higher than whites.

So yeah, I am going to go to Breitbart when I want fair and balanced reporting especially when that reporting is on descendants of slaves in America.

First of all, right out of the gate, you are wrong because an African-American is an African who immigrated to America, took a Naturalization test and gained his citizenship. Voila! African-American. That is not us. We are not African-Americans. I was not born in Africa and immigrated to America, took a Naturalization test and gained my American citizenship and so then why are we the only generally hyphenated group in America? I guess that is on us as well.

The writer went on to state, in essence, that Black males are literally throwing themselves at the police and so that is why we have so many police involved killings of Black men. No! This is why we have so many police involved killings of Black men.

Texas Officers Fired for Membership in KKK

Two law enforcement officers in Williamson County, Texas, have been fired after it was discovered they were members of the Ku Klux Klan.

County Sheriff John Maspero said there was no evidence the two men, Deputy David Gay, 45, and Sgt. Greg Palm, 29, had committed any acts of discrimination or failed to perform their duties, but said membership in the notorious hate group was sufficient reason to dismiss them.

Officials said they found out the two men belonged to the Klan after they approached another officer and asked him to join.

 He stopped just short of saying that ALL Black men have some sort of ‘crime’ gene in them that renders them incapable of civilized behavior and that the gene they carry needs to be isolated and destroyed so as they can go peacefully about their business and stop murdering one another or throwing themselves at the police who are members of the KKK.  And I am quite sure that the two law enforcement officers in the above block quote are the only ones. Yeah! I’m that delusional. But apparently whites don’t have this gene as they are not murdering other whites at the same rate that Black men are murdering other Black men, they just sign up as KKK members and then join the police force. The editor of this ‘America’s Unspeakable Problem’ post did not say a goddamn thing about the whites who have gone all across this country lynching, shooting and dragging Black men to their deaths because that just ain’t crime right there. That’s justifiable, don’t you know. I fucking swear, my head is going to explode over the sheer outrageous bullshit that appears on my reader.

I went on to post another comment and it reads as follows:

Crime is the result of an ignored problem and the problem in this case is unmitigated poverty, gentrification, homelessness and drug addiction. I live in one of the cities that has been designated a high crime city with a yearly murder rate of over 300.

You go to Breitbart, one of the most right-leaning websites to post your statistics and then try and pretend that you’ve reported on this issue, unbiased when you have not. I can cite statistics from a website that will counter yours and then you can likewise find another website similar to Breitbart to attempt to refute my statistics, meanwhile what does this do for the problem of crime, period? And it is the whites who are always clamoring for lax gun laws and who are shooting each other even at the gun range and who are also the number one killers of each other while cleaning guns or keeping their guns in reach of young children.

Let’s take a look at something.

5 Facts That Shatter the Myth of ‘Black-on-Black’ Crime

Here are 5 facts that prove white-on-white crime is actually the real problem, and that anyone trying to make “black-on-black crime” a major issue is just a racist looking for positive reinforcement of their prejudiced worldview.

1. 84 percent of white murder victims were white

2. Whites kill more whites than black people kill each other

In 2011, the most recent year for which data is available, 2,630 white people killed 3,172 white people, according to FBI homicide statistics. When comparing that to the black population, in which 2,447 African-Americans murdered 2,695 of their own, white-on-white murder is clearly the bigger issue.

. White people commit more crimes than any other race

4. White people kill more members of vulnerable populations than any other race

5. Gang murders are most common among white gangs
While a lot of attention has been given to the gang-related homicides in Chicago’s predominantly-black South side, very little press has been devoted to covering the epidemic of white-on-white gangland murders. As the above chart demonstrates, the majority of gang-related homicides are committed by white people (53.3 percent white, 42.2 percent black), and the majority of white gang murder victims are also white (56.5 percent white, 40 percent black). Have this fact handy the next time someone bemoans “black-on-black” gang violence.

——————————————————

Yeah, so have these figures handy the next time you want to mouth off about ‘America’s unspeakable problem….’

You conveniently neglect to mention how violent whites are but their crime statistics are not reported because of who controls the reporting and because the agenda is to make Black people out to be the worst folks breathing while whites always get a free pass. Not on my watch, you don’t! Whites are killing whites, and how, but you didn’t bother to go on and on about that because that’s not something that anyone wants bandied about because let us just focus on the REAL BAD BLACK FOLKS killing each other. I will certainly be blogging about this post, count on it!

And even after I posted this, the situation only deteriorated, just as I thought.

Shelby,

(1) “the problem in this case is unmitigated poverty, gentrification, homelessness and drug addiction.”

All of those factors are real. But African-Americans have far higher crime rates than other races even controlling for that.

(2) “pretend that you’ve reported on this issue, unbiased ”

No, I said exctly the opposite.

(3) ” I can cite statistics from a website that will counter yours and then you”

I look forward to you doing so. I doubt that you can. The numbers you cite ignore the point shown here. We’re talking about rates of violence. Numbers of crimes per thousand, or relative rates of crime between races. You are looking at absolute numbers, which tell us only that African-Americans are only a tenth of the population. Violent crime rates are what matter inside a community, not the aggregate number of crimes in the nation.

(4) “Gang murders are most common among white gangs”

We’re looking at overall violent crime rates. Parsing those into the many specific kinds of violent crimes is irrelevant to the large point made here, although it is important when taking specific public policy actions to address crime.

See what I mean? “No Shelby, we are looking at ‘overall violent crime rates’.” No, he is not. He is talking about crime rates as it pertains to inner cities that are supposedly committed by ‘African-Americans and since African-Americans are those Africans who willingly rowed up to the shores of America and got processed, then he cannot be speaking of descendants of African slaves, but if he was to be speaking of descendants of African slaves, has he forgotten THE reason we are over here? I even addressed that and it was tossed out like yesterday’s garbage as inconsequential to the situation at hand of out-of-control rampaging male descendants of slaves revolting and attempting to overthrow their white oppressors. Ain’t that just the end of enough? How dare all those ‘Nat Turners’ be out and about just attempting to gain their freedom from their oppressors who just sit somewhere pontificating over why there is so much crime among descendants of slaves.

Goddamn it! We would not be here if your ancestors had not been some of the most lazy ass, good for nothings who had no work ethic whatsoever and so went in search of free labor to build up a stolen land. Must I continuously give a history lesson?Print that! Pontificate over that! Be judgmental about that! Go find that on Breitbart, I fucking dare you! But you won’t do that because that is just not your agenda. Your agenda is to attempt to show everyone that there is just something inherently criminal in Black males and so why the police are killing them is no mystery to you. The police are just doing what medical science refuses to do, eradicate the bad gene that must be what is causing the male descendants of slaves to go rogue! Fuck that and you! I am sick to shit of this type of tripe that does nothing but place the blame for what ails Black communities on Black communities and not on where it belongs, whitey white ass!

And once again, for the motherfuckers out there who are dumb as all hell, we would not be here for you to wonder at your leisure over our so-called crime rates if your ancestors had not dragged ours over here. But that is something that you just want overlooked because though you may think yourselves blameless, you are SO not! We don’t want to have to deal with you any more than you want to deal with us! But yet, you want to pretend as if your shit don’t stink. Well goddamn it, it reeks to the stars and back! Your shit is a funky ass, filthy vile and malodorous stench and so accept it because it’s yours! Goddamn it! Your shit ain’t on us, it’s on you! You own this! Yeah! Fucking begin with why the fuck we are here! And then come talk to me!

Lastly, what the fuck are you worried about? We’re fucking not shooting you. Your own goddamn kind is killing you, so worry about your white buddy that lives down the street from you, going the fuck off because he lost his job or he just got back from Afghanistan and can’t distinguish the ‘good guys’ from the ‘bad guys’. He’s more likely to bust a cap all up in your ass. That’s what you pontificate and worry about, you racist son of a bitch!

February Is Slave History Month

slave-history-month-one

Yea though I stand humbly draped in chains,
I am allowed to celebrate slave history gains.
And since I shall die while serving my white master,
make a note that I worshipped at your feet, sweet Alabaster.

Make no mistake, I am grateful for no freedom
since oppression is what I’m used to as I head to God’s kingdom.
There, I will be judged by their god of outrageous lies
and found stunningly unfit by the lord of these flies.
So, please stand with me now as we thank our dear captors
for our place in history; all twenty-eight chapters.

Written by,

As we are all aware by now, we are in the midst of celebrating Slave History Month and so without further ado, let the celebrations begin.

Those of us who had no choice but to be here since we did not immigrate but are here nevertheless thanks to our ancestors having been forcibly dragged here, take this opportunity to thank those who are the spawn of what dragged us here for giving us this month to celebrate that fact. It is quite apparent that those who wish us to thank them for this opportunity to stand before them in chains to this very day, are awaiting demonstrations of gratitude from us. We have not humbled ourselves in their kitchens, slave quarters, bathrooms, bedrooms and fields quite to their satisfaction for why else have they given us this month in which to thank them for their generosity; their thoughtfulness in dragging our ancestors from Africa to America? How can we let them know just how truly delighted we are to have twenty-eight chapters…I mean, twenty-eight days in which to celebrate our slave history?

And if you think you are not still a slave, why, Donald Trump just disabused you of that notion by in essence, speaking of Frederick Douglass as though he were still alive today.

Trump had this to say about Frederick Douglass. “Frederick Douglass is an example of someone who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I noticed.”

Frederick Douglass, on behalf of Donald Trump, we wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued excellence in getting your point across as it pertains to “What to the slave is your fourth of July celebrations?‘ as you tour America today. Apparently, you did not die in 1895 since Trump is noticing that you are being recognized more and more wherever you go even though most of us are aware that you were born into slavery. It is good to know that you are still with us and even though you are still a slave, they have given you leeway to go on tour to promote your abolitionist views.

I hear tell that Harriet Tubman is being brought back to life in the form of her picture on the twenty dollar bill. What in the world is President Jackson saying about this? And I know he will not keep quiet about it. But then, we shall surely wait for Donald Trump to get around to enlightening us on that score. So many slaves still here with us today to celebrate Slave History Month and so let us thank them for their continued sacrifices on our behalf. For theirs has been an excruciatingly long and arduous struggle and we also have many Civil Rights icons that we want to thank as well; Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, Bayard Rustin, Ralph Abernathy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Ella Baker, Medgar Evers and so many, many more.

But today, as we celebrate Slave History Month, our celebrations are being upended thanks to The Donald’s Muslim ban and the cries for us to stand in solidarity with the Muslim community that never stood in solidarity with us; in fact, went out of its way to make sure that the ‘whites’ knew that we could not count on Muslim solidarity in our time of need. What group has ever stood in solidarity with us? Most certainly not the Muslims. And just so you know this to be true, here is a little excerpt that I took from a blog that I was reading earlier.

In the Fight Against Islamophobia, Solidarity with other Marginalized Groups is Key

when I sit around listening to aunties at parties giving pointers to each other on the best times to go to yoga classes so as to avoid black people. (Honestly, it’s a charitable interpretation of their language to even say they refer to black folks as people; most of the time they casually use the term kala, which literally means just “black” in Hindi/Urdu.)

Isn’t that nice? Black people are not even referred to as people, only as the ‘color’, Black, literally by the Muslims. You are less than a color to these Muslims. At least the ‘whites’ gave you the dubious distinction of being three-fifths human, but the Muslims don’t even give you that much. And so, you are going to stand somewhere in solidarity with some shits that don’t even see you as ‘human’? What does that say for them? Send their ass packing Donald Trump; each and every damn one of them. Send them packing!

And yes, we must be avoided at all times but because the Muslims are afraid for their very lives now, it has now been deemed appropriate to wake up and recognize that the ‘whites’ are now coming for them, so let’s get with the program that it would be to their benefit to get with ‘the color Black’ at yoga class because those  ‘Black colors’ have been marginalized since forever. The Muslim marginalization has just begun and they want to recognize the fact of ‘the ongoing color Black’ marginalization just NOW! Too goddamn late! Don’t let the door hit you on your ass on the way out of yoga class or on the way out of this country! Send them packing, Donald Trump! Send them packing! And if that isn’t bad enough, read this:

I knew my marginalization wasn’t unique every time I heard my classmates cycle through a seemingly endless repertoire of racist jokes on the schoolbus, about everything from the emo-Muslim who lets out angst by crashing planes to the Mexicans coming out of holes in their backyards to the eternal crowd favorite, “What do you call 3 black men on the moon? Three black men on the moon. What do you call 3 million? Problem solved!”
Just as horrifying as these jokes was the expectation that I would laugh at them too — since, hey, I’m not Mexican or black, so what business do I have being offended?

To take offense for the sake of people different from you is to begin to become invested in a politics deeper than your own individual hurt.

WOW! Hey slaves in America, you taking note of this? This newly marginalized Muslim here has been listening to these racist comments all her life but has chosen this time to dig up some hurt for you because now Muslims like herself are being targeted. So, this indeed is the case of “I did not speak up when first they came for the Blacks in my yoga class, I did not speak up when they told racist jokes about Black men, but now, I want these same ‘marginalized’ people to get with the program that we should now gather in a group hug and recognize that we need each other since I am now one of the ‘marginalized’.” Nope, not going to happen! If you were never in my corner…AND, you were NOT!!!, you are never going to be in my corner simply because the focus is not just solely on our ass anymore, but now they have dumped their collective hatred onto your ass! And even your various college degrees are not enough to save you from their hysterical hatred for Muslims from select countries who hold green cards or an H-1b visa. You see the one difference between us is I don’t hold a green card nor a visa because I was born here. Can you say the same? No, I didn’t think so because if you could, you wouldn’t be so put out about this Muslim ban, would you? They cannot put your sorry ass out of this country fast enough to suit me! Send them packing Donald Trump! Send them packing!

So, let us celebrate Slave History Month, my fellow slaves because we are on our own. There is no need for you to feel pressured to march through the streets with those who are afraid of some immigration ban because their fight is not your fight since your fight, they never bothered with or even thought about since it did not seem as though the ‘whites’ would ever pick a fight with them. No, celebrate your Slave History Month for what it is worth and tell those who would stand in solidarity with you now that karma is a bitch! Send them packing Donald Trump! Send them packing!

Uh…Excuse Me, But….’White’ Women…..

marching-in-washington

 

….you overwhelmingly voted for Donald J. Trump and so what is the deal? Because according to an article in the New York Times, 53% of white female voters voted for Trump and now you’re protesting him? Was yesterday’s march on Washington planned as soon as Hildabeast gave her concession speech which you knew was coming since you headed inside the voting booth and marked an ‘X’ beside Donald Trump and Mike Pence on your ballot and now you are marching and planning future marches to protest what you helped to elect?Why in the world would you get buyers remorse so soon after putting Trump in office? I already knew most of you were crazy, but you’ve certainly proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

I saw the pictures of you marching through Washington, D.C. just a proudly showing off your pink hats and various other apparel, apparently to bring attention to your supposed femininity, but it don’t cut no ice with me. Whatever can your agenda be or do you even know? Because I cannot even hazard a guess as to what it is. You clearly made your choice on election day and now you want the world to know that you are upset, to say the least, with your choice? The world should turn its collective back on you instead of standing in solidarity with your foolishness. If you were so afraid that Donald Trump would take your rights away, then the 53% of white female voters who voted for Trump should have voted for someone else because you get what you pay for and you paved the way for Donald Trump on election day by casting your vote for him and so now that you have him, you’re still not satisfied? But then, that’s always been your problem. You’ve too much time on your hands, too much privilege along with too few brain cells functioning and so your thought processes are retarded, obviously, if you can overwhelmingly vote for a man while claiming at the same time that he is a misogynistic asshole; is disrespectful of women, hosts beauty pageants that are demeaning to women, even though you participate in them, and then turn right around and protest what you put into the oval office.

And I sincerely hope that you are not wondering why my Black ass was not standing shoulder to shoulder with the likes of you because it is a known fact that you’ve given not a damn for the plight of the Black woman in Amerikkka from slavery to this very day. As ‘whitewashed’ as history is, it is still well known what you depraved asses did to slave women. It was not their fault for being here and your husbands and sons were lusting after them and it was the slave woman who was tortured by you. And even today, you would only have us stand with you to make your numbers look good when you protest the fact that your own men still hold you in contempt and think of you as nothing more than something to get laid to produce their progeny and then they get up and search for another man’s butthole. But of course, you can’t stand the truth in that you whore yourself out to a man through marriage for those credit cards, McMansions, SUVs and fancy vacations and when you start looking like a dried up prune, he is busy divorcing your ass while you piss and moan over your plight. I’ve seen this too many times to count.

Even though I did see a few Black faces in the crowds, they were few and far between because even we have some retarded women who will follow behind the likes of you because they apparently, don’t know any better or have their own agenda. And of course, we’ve got the bi-racials who will always side with the ‘white is right’ crew; that’s a given and believe me, you are welcome to them.

“Ninety-four percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton. Sixty-eight percent of Latina women did so. But 53 percent of the white female voters in this country voted for Donald Trump.”

That’s right! You own this one, white women! Ninety-four percent of Black women voted for Hillary because Black women were sincere when they responded to the question when polled about who they would vote for while quite obviously, white women were not since you state one thing and do another. This also goes to show how untrustworthy you are. I damn sure would never turn my back on any of you. I don’t care if you’re in the South, the Midwest or the West; makes no difference because you’re all the same, out for yourselves and damn any one else. That’s how it’s always been with you and it always will be this way.

There were a multitude of responses to the question, “Why are you marching and protesting?” Let’s see what a few responses were.

“At one checkpoint, protesters wore orange jumpsuits with black hoods over their faces to represent prisoners in U.S. detention at Guantanamo Bay. Eleanor Goldfield, who helped organize the DisruptJ20 protest, said protesters wanted to show Trump and his “misguided, misinformed or just plain dangerous” supporters that they won’t be silent.”

Now, isn’t that telling? You were protesting the prisoners in Guantanamo while 2.3 million mostly Black men and women languish in prisons in America and you don’t have a problem with this because you were not protesting that those prisoners should be released, you were worried about those in Guantanamo. Oh, how thoughtful and considerate you are and so selective when doling out your consideration and thoughtfulness because it would seem that some of us are just not worthy of your consideration; namely Black folks.

“Trump’s election was the wake-up call that progressives needed, said Erin Edlow, 28, the membership director of the Virginia Beach Young Democrats. She was in town with her sister to demonstrate her support for the rights of immigrants and of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.”

Of course Trump’s election was a wake-up call and 53% of white women woke up and headed to the polls to elect Donald Trump as the next president of the United States. They also called on their fellow co-workers, friends, relatives and acquaintances to do likewise and then turned right around and requested their presence at the march on Washington. And Erin Edlow here, stated in no uncertain terms that she was marching for immigrants and for the LGBT crowd but never a mention for those who have been on the receiving end of endless racism, bigotry, prejudice, Jim Crow; the whole nine yards. Why am I not surprised? Hell no! I would never stand with any of you! Not for a nanosecond!

“Although the marchers were mostly female and white, men and people of color also joined the throngs.”
See what I mean? We’ve got a few people of color who were dropped on their head, but by and large, white females along with their male counterparts elected Donald J. Trump. Now why oh why are you so upset over your own choice? And I have stated this before and it would seem that I must state it again. Why be afraid of Trump? He is just like you! Wouldn’t you think that Black people should be the ones marching through the streets, en masse? But you don’t see this and you know why? It is because we are used to Trump since we have to deal with YOU every day and not just for four years or even eight years, but every single damn day and you are worse than Trump! Now, you deal with you! And so get somewhere and sit the hell down because you’re only looking foolish parading around as if you didn’t vote into power the very thing you’re pretending to protest against. Give it a rest! Those of us who have not been dropped on our head, know the deal! When you look in your mirror, Trump is staring right back at you!

Our Annihilation Begun!

together

She had rough, woolen tresses; a big afro
that she tamed with braids in a neat cornrow.
Her deep, dark tone had a sunlit glow
and beautiful brown eyes in the shape of a doe.

In the fields at dusk, she straightens her back
and heads towards her one room shack,
where there’s a white man waiting to get her in the sack
to produce another baby that’s only half black.

Nine months later, her child is born,
with features distorted, she looks on with scorn.
This creature from her body should have been stillborn
or better yet, from her womb; ripped and torn.

She muffles his cries with a hand to his face,
staring down in dismay over the erasure of her race.
How could a just god allow this to take place?
When did all Blacks sin and be cast in disgrace?

For no deep, dark tone had the skin of her son,
as man did conspire to void what nature had done.
And the lies were told; such tall tales were spun.
The black race wiped out, our annihilation begun.

The annihilation of our race started hundreds of years ago and it continues to this very day. As we still reel from the horrors of slavery, an entire race of people are confused and self-hating and are contributing to their own downfall and annihilation through killing one another, drug abuse, gang activity, prostitution and the prevalence of STDs and the mixing of the races, thus erasing us out of history. Our strong bloodline is weakened every single time we mix it with that of those who are not one of us. Why do we do this? For what does it gain us? It gains us nothing and takes everything. Our seed is polluted when mixed with others. At first, we were forced into having sex with our enemies, but now, we willingly engage in intercourse with them. This is sickening.

My own son impregnated and married a white girl. They were divorced two years later, but from that union, they produced a girl. This child refuses to even acknowledge her Black relatives. She has stated, and in no uncertain terms, that if anything happens to her father, she wants a ‘white’ friend at school to ask her parents to adopt her as she wants nothing to do with people who do not look like her. Now, my mother almost had a stroke upon hearing this. I, however, was not shocked because the little hussy has always been this way. And as I am sure many of you will most likely wonder at my so obvious lack of feelings for this pretentious piece of baggage, it should be known that despite all attempts to engage this child in grandmother to grandchild activities, it has proved, fruitless. The last time I saw her, she refused to even turn her head and speak to me. My mother has not seen her in years despite them living in the same town.

The child’s mother’s relatives are all toothless hillbillies; the epitome of trailer park trash. In fact, that is where she was conceived, in a trailer in a park and yet this little hussy thinks that she is better than the ‘Black’ side of the family. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is what we perpetuate when we mix our blood with that of our enemies. So, a word of caution. Before you decide to get down with the swirl, I’d think on what I was about to do if I were you as I think that what I have described here is more prevalent than you think.

Years Ago….!

tree with rope

 

Years ago, they put a noose
around our necks for sure.
And now, they just shoot us,
They say our blood ain’t blue and pure.

Years ago, they came to see him,
while he was working in the field.
They told him his blood was bad.
Before I knew it, my man was killed.

Years ago, they said, “You’re free!”
Then they posted a sign instead.
I drank from a ‘colored only’ fountain,
slept in a ‘colored only’ motel bed.

I don’t see that sign no mo.
They hid it with a law.
They said, “No more segregation.”
But segregation was all I saw.

Slavery, it won’t no fun.
and Jim Crow was no joke.
But when King spoke on his dream
I said, “You know you ’bout to croak!”

Now, I sit on this ole stoop,
and I watch drug deals go down.
Don’t nobody want to hear from me,
I’m too old to wear a martyr’s crown.

But if you want a little advice,
live each moment like it’s your last.
Don’t expect too much from life
and you cannot change the past.

Jay Z, To The Klan Decked Out in Blue, “Don’t Shoot Us!”

Jay Z

 

I must admit that I have never listened to even one of Jay-Z’s songs and so I am in no position to review this latest song of his whereas he is ‘telling’ the police not to shoot us, but I am pretty sure that Jay Z has rapped about bitches, hos, bling, gangbanging and the like; being a rapper, of course. I am pretty sure that the majority of songs recorded by Jay Z, were labeled, “explicit.” And so, I wonder is he walking around calling HIS daughter, a “ho?” I wonder is he walking around calling his daughter, a “bitch?” I wonder is he telling his daughter that when she grows up, get with a guy who is gangbanging in an attempt to bring home some dough, just expect to get with lots of ’em because the life of a gangbanger is short, just as the life of every Black man in AmeriKKKa is shortened by inner city violence and crime and by out-of-control killer Klansmen decked out in blue, otherwise known as the slave patrol.

Now, it has been stated that this latest song is ‘spiritual’. What that means, I don’t know and so let me just post a few lyrics and see if I can find anything ‘spiritual’ about this song that’s ‘telling the Klan decked out in blue, to stop killing us.

Yeah, I am not poison, no I am not poison
Just a boy from the hood that
Got my hands in the air
In despair don’t shoot
I just wanna do good, ah

This is what Jay Z calls, “Spiritual?” I am not poison, just a boy from the hood, got my hands in the air, in despair, and I just wanna do good?” Hmmmm……I am not quite getting the ‘spiritual’ connection here. Now, if he had of said,

“I drink from a poison cup each day,
 even at night
when I’m on my knees to pray,
God knows,
I’ve sacrificed my life for my wife and my daughter
and the shit is still hitting the fan in a big ass way.
My hands, are clenched at my side in Bible study
as the bullets pierce my tender flesh.
Lord, what is this mess?
Your creation is killing your creation
and I ain’t feeling the elation.
Where is MY rapture Lord?
Where is MY rapture?
I need some before I die
and I know you know why!”

rap lyrics by Shelby I. Courtland

©2016 Shelby I. Courtland, who by the way, does not rap. So, gi’ me a break!

I’m no rapper and I’ve never claimed to be but to me, writing a song to tell the KKKops that our hands are in the air and so please don’t shoot us is not spiritual, it is demeaning because our hands have been up in the air for hundreds of years and still the only thing that is sought, is our annihilation. Even a blind man that’s been planted can still see this. And, “I just wanna do good?” What is that all about?  Black people don’t have to ‘do bad’ to get shot and killed by racist KKKops. Ask Freddie Gray, just what was he doing wrong that got his spine severed and himself inside a casket. So, according to Jay Z, if we tell everyone that we ‘wanna do good’, why, that is going to make all the difference in the world. Tamir Rice, I am sure, is thrilled to hear it!

AND…and…if this song by Jay Z is so spiritual, than why are these lyrics in it?

Nigga ain’t dozed, I ain’t washed in a week
I ain’t changed clothes ’til the Black Album
Til I tapped out ’em, them niggas is WWE

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to NOT listen to this ‘spiritual’ song whereas Jay Z is still referring to Black people in the most derogatory term ever made up by the ‘whites’. And let me just interject here for a minute with some thoughts of my own. What I am trying to understand and have been trying to understand for quite some time now, is why oh why, are Black people the only race of people that will take up THE most derogatory name in history and apply it to ourselves? What the hell is wrong with us? You see, we have no respect for ourselves as a people and since we don’t, no one else will have any respect for us either and now, I am going to be brutally honest. I am getting to the point whereas I don’t have much respect for Black people, as a whole. I don’t. I never even want to board a bus, ever again because all I hear is “Nigga this and Nigga that!” How many Chinese people do you hear calling other Chinese people, “Chinks?” White Europeans, and this means AmeriKKKans, because they came to AmeriKKKa from Europe, refer to Chinese people using that derogatory term and do you think that the Chinese grabbed it and accepted it? Hell no!

Do you think Mexicans are calling each other “Wetbacks?” Hell no, they’re not! Every group that did not originate in Europe and who were given a derogatory name by Europeans has not accepted or claimed a derogatory name given to them by Europeans except for Black people. Now, that speaks volumes. Again, we are the only group who will look to our oppressors for our identification because that is exactly what Black people have done because more Black people use a version of that word “Nigger” than those of us who don’t. And don’t give me no bullshit about how that is not true because I’ll call you a straight up liar! Every person in my family has used that word to describe another Black person except for me and about 3 others. Even the so-called ‘bougie’ Black folks refer to other Black people as “Niggers or  Niggaz.” You can’t dress that word up. You cannot call that word, “a term of endearment.” You cannot write a ‘spiritual’ song and include a version of that word in it because it reduces your message to one of vulgar noise with no substance. It renders your argument, null and void and if your argument is against the Klan decked out in blue killing innocent Black people, then you are part of the problem and most definitely not the solution.

The Jay Zs of this world made their money off the Black community, hit it big and then turn their backs on it. They no longer even identify with the Black struggle because they and their ‘product’ have been confiscated by their white masters and they do their bidding. Oh yes, we all know that Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles hit the big time and some of their ‘product’ they purportedly own, but they are still owned, lock, stock and barrel by the ‘white’ man. But still, they’ve got more money than they know what to do with and yes, I had read that Beyoncé allegedly poured a bottle of champagne costing $20,000 into a hot tub in a Nicki Minaj video,  and if this is true, how many hungry children could have been fed with that $20,000? One article of clothing that they wear could keep the lights on for an entire neighborhood and while I do understand that Jay Z and Beyoncé bailed Ferguson and Baltimore protesters out of jail, would they have even been in jail if not for the systemic racism that is endemic to America? Would Freddie Gray have been murdered if we did not live in a society that values Black lives less than it does a cow? For what does it cost Jay Z to put together some lyrics that a child could write, studio up a beat and then sell it to the brainwashed ‘Niggaz’ that he goes on and on about who have raised their arms in the air and who, despite this, are still finding themselves full of bullets shot by racist KKKops? And though Jay Z and Beyoncé and other singers and professional sports players drop a dime every now and then in Haiti and in America as well, they are not the solution to what ails Black communities all across America and the solution to our woes of racism, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass unemployment and underemployment, mass incarceration, abject poverty and homelessness, rampant drug addiction and gentrification will not be solved until we actually believe that we are something other than “Niggaz!”

Why we value ourselves so little is because many of us look to others to define our worth and by doing so, we will always come up short. Our ancestors were assessed for their worth; their value, before having been sold at auction. They were considered to be property and to this day, nothing has changed. We are still considered, ‘property’ to be used and discarded at will. If you are not making money for the ‘white’ man, you are of no value to him and so he has instructed the slave patrols to relieve you of as much of your hard-earned money as he can and then, kill you. That is exactly what happened to Philando Castile as that man was racially profiled over 50 times for seatbelt violations, revoked driver’s license and for having no proof of insurance and Philando Castile paid $6,588 in fines to Massa before Massa killed him by way of the slave patrols; the Klan decked out in blue.

So, as far as I am concerned, Jay Z, you can take your ‘Spiritual’ and shove it up your ass because continuing to ‘spiritually’ or otherwise tell the Klan decked out in blue to, “Don’t Shoot!” is akin to me telling another Black person to stop calling me a ‘Nigger!” It ain’t happening! The time is 3:11PM central daylight savings time, tell me, how many of my Black readers have been called, “Nigger!” today and the person who called you that was not ‘white’? We will never be respected by the ‘whites’, I understand that but the truth of the matter is that we don’t even respect ourselves. And yet, we want to yell and scream that “Black lives matter!” when we don’t even believe that because if we did, we would not continuously disrespect  each other by picking up a derogatory name that was given to us by our enemy and then turn it on ourselves. That’ is like me taking a gun from a ‘white’ man and turning it on myself. There are more than enough of them killing us, they don’t need any help from us and yet, we give them plenty. We shoot each other and then we get bent out-of-shape when a racist fills us full of bullets. Why is that? You don’t mind running through the streets, shooting, indiscriminately; killing toddlers, children and innocent women. Why then, should others who see you do this, think highly of you? You give them an excuse to say, “Well, they are killing each other! Look at what’s going down in inner cities!” Yeah! We all know what is going down in inner cities. Some of what is going down is most definitely not on us, but some of what is going down, is most definitely on us.

Excuse me! But we have lost. And we lost long time ago. We lost when we lost our sense of community, when we lost our sense of direction, when we lost our minds, when we lost our dignity, when we lost our humanity, when we lost who we came from when we lost ourselves. Jay Z cannot find you. Beyoncé cannot find you. But because we choose to continue down a destructive path and because we continue to live down to each and every stereotype of us and because we do nothing with our money beyond buying Jay Z’s latest ‘Spiritual’ and Michael Jordan’s latest sneaker and Timberland boots, our neighborhoods will continue to be taken away from us and we will continue to be herded into prison or to the morgue and despite cries of “Don’t shoot!,” KKKops will continue to shoot! Count on it! Because we cannot even count on each other! And that is why no one has come to our defense. No country that has issued travel advisories that warned its citizens to use extreme caution when coming to America has stated that America’s Black citizens need their help. Other countries see what we have become and they want no part of us. And I for one, can’t say as I blame them. I am tired of standing up for people who refuse to stand up for themselves. I am tired of attending protests to tell others to stop killing us when we refuse to do so. I cannot take to task someone else who is doing the same things that we are doing to each other without speaking out on that fact. Are we to blame for everything that is going down on us? Hell no! But at the same time, we are not entirely blameless since we are aiding and abetting our enemy in reducing our numbers. And so before you head to another protest rally, print two signs. One sign should read, “KKKops, Don’t Shoot!” The other sign should read, “Why Are We Shooting Each Other?”

Nigga ain’t dozed, I ain’t washed in a week
I ain’t changed clothes ’til the Black Album
Til I tapped out ’em, them niggas is WWE

“And Jay Z!, get the fuck outta here with that bullshit!”

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

former Miss Alabama

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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