Police shot and killed an unarmed black man in his own backyard. All he was holding was a cellphone.

So, another young Black man is dead who was in his own yard and his crime? He was holding a cellphone. And yet, every single damn time there is a mass shooting or someone is sending bombs to people, they are white males and yet, when they are apprehended, the police don’t shoot them. Not a hair on their head is harmed. The only reason they get dead is because they shot themselves or blew themselves to bits while white folks sit around and bemoan the mental health system in AmeriKKKa! Seriously???!!!!

On Sunday, 22-year-old Stephon Clark was shot in the backyard of the home he was staying in with his grandparents. Police officers were purportedly responding to reports of a man breaking car windows.

According to a press release issued by the Sacramento Police Department, a helicopter tracking a suspect directed the officers to Clark, who ran towards the house after being confronted by officers. The police department said Clark turned and began to “advance forward with his arms extended, and holding an object in his hands.”

The officers, who are said to have thought the object was a gun, then fired 20 rounds at Clark. It’s unclear how many of the shots hit Clark, but other facts aren’t in dispute, and they’re disturbing: After the shooting, officers waited several minutes for backup before moving to handcuff Clark and beginning medical treatment. And the only item he turned out to have been carrying was a cellphone.

So, as you can see, those thugs in uniform, who have sworn an oath to ‘protect and serve’, did not do a goddamn thing to see if this young descendant of slaves could be saved. They left him to lie there and bleed out and die before even bothering to begin ‘medical treatment’. And I am unsure as to what ‘medical treatment’ those goddamn depraved racists would have attempted on a man that they swore an oath to murder with depraved indifference. And the police have been lying their racist asses off since this latest murder went down, what with changing their stories, several times over, on what caused them to shoot Stephon Clark.

At a city council meeting in Sacramentoon Tuesday, local activists argued that the police department’s multiple statements on the shooting have only added to the confusion. “They put one story out that he may have been armed. They put out another that he had a ‘tool bar,’ whatever that is,” Tanya Faison, founder of the Sacramento chapter of Black Lives Matter, told reporters.“Then they put out that he had a wrench, and then they put out that he just had a cellphone. They need to get it together.”

They shot the man dead because he was holding a cellphone(that’s probably a lie) and then had the audacity to lie about what he ‘may have been armed with’? So now, descendants of slaves are ‘armed’ with cellphones and need to be shot dead because the police ‘feared for their life’ over being faced with a descendant of slaves holding a cellphone in his hand in his own backyard? If that ain’t the goddamn end of enough!!!

We don’t have to go anywhere! We get shot dead in our own homes(Aiyana Stanley-Jones) or in our own backyards and those racist bastards will get away with murder because times have never changed for descendants of slaves in this shithole. The same shit that was going down when our ancestors were slaving away on plantations in this shithole is still going down today despite movements, marches and protests. What the fuck have they accomplished? Not a goddamn thing! And they will never accomplish a goddamn thing. Demanding justice at city council meetings will do what? AGAIN! Not a goddamn thing!

White folks! Why the fuck are we here?? We are here because YOUR ancestors were some of the most lazy ass, good for nothings who had no goddamn work ethic whatsoever and who refused to even plant and pick their own fucking vegetables, cook their own meals, clean their own homes or do any goddamn thing else and yet, you are somewhere pointing the finger at others and calling them ‘lazy’ when you worthless motherfuckers are descendants of the laziest sloths to ever slither and crawl across this god forsaken planet! Yet, you kill us because YOUR ancestors dragged ours over here! You are depraved lunatics who should be behind bars because you are a menace to this entire goddamn planet. Just look at what you are doing to every other being on this fucking planet! You are diseased, parasitic filth! Die already!

But meanwhile, white filth is somewhere sending bombs to innocent people, killing mostly….AGAIN, descendants of slaves and he has to blow himself up. Dylann Roof murdered nine Black churchgoers in South Carolina and he was treated to a Burger King Whopper when he was apprehended and the cops knew he had guns on his person, but was he shot up? Hell no! This latest mass shooting in Parkland Florida, the white male shooter who murdered 17 people and wounded 14 others fled the scene of the shooting, went to Subway and McDonald’s before being apprehended by police, who then escorted him to a hospital for ‘labored breathing’ before taking him to jail. “Labored breathing’? What the hell is that? What? He exhaled a deep sigh while waiting for his order to be completed in McDonald’s when the police caught up with him and so took him to the hospital just to make sure that he was not asthmatic? For the love of !!!!!

That wasn’t the case with Stephon Clark, though. Oh no! Don’t give that descendant of slaves any medical treatment after shooting him 20 times. “Just let him lie there and bleed out and die! That’s what we want, just another dead nigger! And we’ll get off scot-free because ‘WE FEARED FOR OUR LIVES!’, scared shitless motherfuckers that we are!”

And as for the other descendants of slaves who wanted some ‘feel good’ fake ass shit and paid Walt Disney and Marvel Comics, Hershey, Nestle and Orville Redenbacher a mint for the dubious pleasure of watching ‘Black Panther’ murder another descendant of slaves on film, you don’t see enough of that shit being played out FOR REAL, every goddamn day? You sat there and watched some supposed African, who was just like all the other Africans over there who are some selfish sons-of-bitches who enrich their coffers at the expense of other Africans, murder a so-called ‘African-American from Oakland, CA because he was pissed off to the max that that African ‘king’ wasn’t helping other African countries nor was he about helping those who were descendants of that shit from Africa who were rowed to AmeriKKKa to end up in places like Oakland.

In my post This Ain’t Wakanda!, I told you that when you exited the theater, the same shit that was going down before you entered it, would be going down when you finished getting your ‘feel good’ fix in that nothing would have changed. How in hell does seeing some dark-skinned coonhead sell-outs on the big screen do a goddamn thing for you? What did that shit do for Stephon Clark? Last month, Black Panther came out and a month later, Stephon Clark, who has more in common with you than those fake-assed coonhead sellouts you sat and watched for two hours, was murdered in his own damn backyard by skinhead racists in cop uniforms and what has those actresses and actors who starred in Black Panther had to say about this latest police shooting death of a descendant of slaves? Not a goddamn thing! You will come out in the millions sporting dashikis and African head wraps to focus on some shit that doesn’t even pertain to you because you ain’t fucking African, but what the hell do you do when Stephon Clark gets shot dead for being exactly what you are? Not a goddamn thing! Because you are still enveloped in the glow of “WAKANDA FOREVER GODDAMN IT!” You filthy ass stupid dark-skinned motherfuckers, I am SO done with trying to get through to you ignorant ass, clueless buffoons, it ain’t even fucking funny!

Now go take another look at your fucking stupid ass dashiki and African head wrap and use it to cover poor dead Stephon Clark because what else are they good for? Because Stephon Clark got “Wakanda Forever!” didn’t he? Stephon Clark didn’t get fantastical shit! He got shot dead! What super hero saved him? Did the millions of you who sat through Black Panther converge on the scene of where Stephon Clark was murdered? Why not? He represents your reality more so than those coonheads on that big screen you just sat and watched.

As I stated in another post, Every single day, you have less and less to lose and yet, you never gain any knowledge from your losses. More’s the goddamn pity!

Walt Disney Told Our Story!

 

 

Black History Month is at an end
and Walt Disney told our story.
We learned about Wakanda
and Black Panther got the glory.

Wearing dashikis and head wraps,
we clapped and cheered for Wakanda;
that magical of all kingdoms,
it looks just like Uganda!

Now, Uganda is over in Africa,
and the poverty rate is high.
Healthcare is abysmal
and people with cholera, they still die.

The folks over in Somalia?
They ain’t looking so good.
Trump just bombed them again,
just like I knew he would.

But over by way of Ethiopia,
the folks there got a plight.
They ain’t eating at all.
And it ain’t about a hunger strike.

The African women of Liberia
have long been seen as slaves;
sex slaves to be exact
and that don’t get no praise.

What about over in Kenya?
They got educated folks
and still, some end up homeless
Look it up, this ain’t no hoax.

Now we come to Ghana,
is this a kingdom too?
It was once ruled by the British.
Does that give you a clue?

Libya is off the chain
and slavery is everywhere.
America and NATO
filled Libyans with despair.

But we celebrate Black History Month
with Black Panther to the rescue.
There’s a kingdom over in Africa,
where lives the privileged few.

Wakanda, is its name.
Its Black Panther leads the charge
against usurpers to the throne
within the kingdom or at large.

Vibranium is its weapon,
against enemies far and wide.
I bet real African nations
wish this kingdom was by their side.

Between fantasy and reality,
we choose fantasy every time.
and we’d rather pay Walt Disney
 our last hard-earned dime.

We don’t care about Liberia,
because that is just too real.
And we don’t live in Uganda
where cholera is a big deal.

We want to live in Wakanda,
fake as it can be.
But that is what we are,
fake people with a fake history.

This here ends Black History,
with many thanks to Walt Disney
who sat us down in Wakanda;
a kingdom; a magical fantasy.

In my opinion, it is a shame that throughout this entire short month that has been set aside to showcase Black History, Walt Disney and Marvel COMICS took over the focus that should have been on REAL Black heroes and heroines who were on the front lines, battling  slavery, oppression, Jim Crow, segregation, voting rights, gentrification, mass unemployment, mass homelessness, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass incarceration, income inequality, substandard health care, cuts to education, inadequate housing, economic inequality, food insecurity, crime, violence, drugs, gangs, teen pregnancies and high homicide rates of Black youth in inner cities and the list is endless.

There was no focus on the above because Black people were so easily distracted into wearing African head wraps and dashikis because a movie was hyped about a fictional kingdom in Africa where there was untold wealth and a superhero to the rescue to protect his rich kingdom.

We would rather remain blind to the facts and to reality. We want, for two hours, to forget the realities we face because we need to be made to ‘feel good’ about belonging to some kingdom in Africa that isn’t even real. How pathetic is that? We want Walt Disney to hurry up and give us Part II of “Wakanda Forever” just in time for next Black History Month so that we can, again, focus on fantasy and not on our reality. How sad is that?

When have we ever lived a “Wakanda Forever” life here in AmeriKKKa? Do you seriously think that even with the links that I have provided in my poem, that the REAL Africa is anything at all like what Walt Disney would have you believe?

When you left the theater, did you see “Wakanda” when you stepped outside? Did you see “Wakanda” when you returned home? Did you see “Wakanda” when you checked out the local news where you live? Did you see “Black Panther” save any Black man, woman or child from being arrested or shot and killed by cops for playing in a park with a toy gun or for failing to use the proper turn signal or for selling loose, un-taxed cigarettes or for simply sleeping in their bed?

How did paying Walt Disney and Marvel Comics for the ‘pleasure’ of watching their distraction help you in any way? Did wearing your dashiki and African head wrap stop the police from pulling you over? Did wearing your dashiki and African head wrap stop your landlord from handing you an eviction notice because your neighborhood is about to be gentrified? Did the “Black Panther” swoop down and take you to “Wakanda Forever?” If you are reading this, Black man, woman, teenager(the few who can read), then the answer is “NO!”

Black History Month? Who needs it when we’ve got “Wakanda Forever!”

“Wakanda?” Forever!

“Thank you Walt Disney for supplying us with our REAL and TRUE History, THIS Black History Month! All hail Walt Disney!”
