This Isn’t the Start of Neglect From the US Against Puerto Rico…

I am surprised that I was taken aback when I began to realize how many people were unaware that Puerto Rico is, and has been, a part of Amerikkka…or at least it is in some ways, “Amerikkkan Liberation”- a term that is full of sarcasm if it’s not clear for America liberates no one. But in keeping this short; please, take the time to educate yourself on even simply how, why and what rights are given and denied to the people of Puerto Rico. The recent and on going tragedies in Puerto Rico’s Hurricane aftermath give a realistic and appalling view of how America, especially under Trump, treats the places it is supposed to protect. Let this be an eye opener: they want to try and keep us in the dark; ignorant, so we won’t unite. So we’ll stay in our places and marinate in wrongful, misplaced anger and hatred.  Keeping the people ignorant is a key step for people like Trump… But it’s been going on long, long before Trump’s racist ass came along.

It baffled/baffleS me how few care about Katrina just as this baffles me…How can so many not care?

Personally, it is absolutely, positively certain and clear to me how the lack of knowledge I speak of regarding Puerto Rico is intertwined with the current treatment of those who survived Hurricane Maria; many left in dire situations; they need the help that should be a birth right. Of course, Trump and his mockery of an administration will never step up and offer the help they would an Island of white supremacists. Not being dramatic but real. The fact that some people (too many and especially whites I’m noticing) roll their eyes at this legitimate belief is enough to make me physically ill. These same people then go on trying to claim whites are under attack and that they are the victims…Sickening, egotistical cowards! 

Before this turns into more of a novel, let me wrap this up.

The following is a well written, accurate and deeply felt article I recommend highly on the Crisis in Puerto Rico and why the current treatment really should not be shocking and is anything but a surprise to those of us with loved ones there; friends and family alike- let alone if you live in PR.
NOTE: I am reblogging, please click the link after the below quote to go to the original posters page where the detailed post and further reading can be found.

“Puerto Ricans on the island and the diaspora feel a sense of neglect and insensitivity—a sense of grievance backed by the actions of the federal government for the last century. The Wall Street Journal editorial “Second-Class Puerto Rico” resonates with citizens who have lived a history of mixed policies—Jones Act, Section 936, Medicaid, PROMESA—that at times are beneficial and at times hurt the island and its dependent economy.  Over time these policies have changed with the concerns of the U.S. government, which often ignore the direct or unintended consequences of these policies on Puerto Rico and its U.S. citizens.

[. . .] After a century of Puerto Rican U.S. citizenship, it is clear that the main goal of the Jones-Shafroth Act of augmenting a “bond” with Puerto Rico (and Puerto Ricans) by granting citizenship has been achieved. But the question is, “Is American citizenship worth the same for Puerto Ricans as it is for other Americans?” For too long, Congress has looked the other way while its inconsistent policies continue to harm Puerto Rico. It is high time for members of Congress to pay attention and act before the humanitarian crisis facing 3.4 million American citizens reaches a point of no return.”

13 Yr Old Black Child, Shavon Randle, Found…

This hit me hard; due to the horrific nature of what this girl went through, due to the lack of attention or concern at least from what I saw… Maybe because I was getting alerts while she was still alive & feel I should have been able to do more than tweet and share random stupid posts about what was going on.

The search for the Lancaster girl, who was the subject of an Amber Alert, came to a heartbreaking conclusion. Her body was discovered inside an east Oak Cliff home late Saturday night.

Shavon Randle, 13 year old Black female… Her body was found along with her 19 year old kidnapper. She was being held ransom over drugs. As stated by local reporters:

” Perkins girlfriend is identified as Ledoris Randle, a relative of Shavon. Randle told police that she received a call at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday from a private number and the voice on the other end said they had Shavon and warned if she called the police, the 7th grader would be killed.

The arrest affidavit says a co-worker of Ledoris Randle confided to her that one of the men that had the narcotics stolen was Fields and that “Fields has history with kidnapping people.”

An anonymous informant told the FBI the a male she knew advised “he was going to kidnap a child to get his narcotics back”, according to the affidavit. The male is identified as Owens. “

Why would anyone involve a child…!? I know this happens far too often; innocent kids victim of stray bullets or other horrors they shouldn’t be anywhere close to. And that’s sickening but they targeted and picked this child all over… drugs? I don’t know what to say other than…

May your new journey, Shavon Randle, be peaceful and full of love… you deserve no less…

Immigration Bans… Making America Whiter; Trump Attacks

By the way, thanks goes to all of the many cities/towns that are standing up against these evil and cruel immigration bans and etc. with any form of resistance. 
Of course, Trump is not taking resistance kindly; I’m surprised he hasn’t done something already. I honestly do not understand why Trump is still in office but that’s an article for another time. 
Below is an article on what Trump is doing to try and punish any area where moral is shown by behaving-in this instance, on this topic– humane and moral. Finally.

I must note here, I understand none of the states are perfect. For example, the state of Cali alone is guilty of immoral behavior regarding police brutality, racism, “three strikes you’re out” law, capital punishment, prison, etc. And no, other states aren’t much better in those areas. But anyone helping the people Trump is hunting deserves at least some positive attention for their attempts. 

On the contrary we have Texas. Instead of showing humane resistance of protection; Texas has many counties petitioning to have more immigration officials come down and shatter homes and rip families apart by labeling them illegal. Absolutely disgusting. Not the Texas really known for being progressive


 

Taking a country back to its origins and claiming them great. That is what Trump claims he is doing?… Sure that is what he’s trying to do. And if your white American you’re probably unaware of what that means. So let’s think about it really fast.

America; the great country or, used to be great… 

It was great during slavery, when taking it from the natives, maintaining that women are inferior, having the white audacity to deny true history, create false history in its place, deem oneself superior to others, Etc… Sure. That’s what we all want to go back to.

Wrong. Wrong if you’re not a racist, white male. Wrong if you’re not completely brainwashed.  

The little progress of this country has made he is reversing. Make America great again is to make America white again. And it is sadly clear that there are too many who- for some reason- think this is a good thing….??? Either that or they’re too brainwashed to understand and see this for what it really is…which is really tragic & disgrace to anyone who has any form of moral, a heart or even the most basic of standards.
If you really want to make America great again you’ll be fighting against the corruption that Trump is putting in place or attempting to put in place. So, I have  gratitude for the small things that any one may be doing as they stand up against the cruelty of Trump and his sort. 

***article begins***

The U.S. Department of Justice threatened on Friday to cut some funding to California as well as eight cities and counties across the United States, escalating a Trump administration crackdown on so-called sanctuary cities that do not cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
President Donald Trump has vowed to strip federal funds from dozens of state and local governments that do not fully cooperate with U.S. immigration agents, arguing they endanger public safety when they decline to hand over for deportation illegal immigrants who are arrested for crimes. 

“Sanctuary cities” in general offer safe harbor to illegal immigrants and often do not use municipal funds or resources to advance the enforcement of federal immigration laws. 

Many of these localities say they do not have the funding or space to hold immigrants until federal agents can take custody of them.  

Those threatened were: the state of California; New York City; Chicago; Philadelphia; Clark County, Nevada; New Orleans; Miami-Dade County, Florida; and Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. Cook County, Illinois, also received a warning, even though it did not get money from the Justice Department last year.

The jurisdictions have until June 30 to provide evidence to the federal government that they are not violating any laws…

White Cop Brutalizes Black Male 2 Weeks After Being Cleared of Murdering Another Black Male- SPREAD THIS!

After being cleared in the killing of another Black man, this disgusting filth cop Zachary Rosen has been caught on video BRUTALIZING only TWO WEEKS after he was cleared in the aforementioned Black man’s SLAUGHTER.  That 23 year old young Black man’s name was Henry Green. Oh, by the way, they were not wearing uniform nor did they identify themselves as cops.

No matter what the young man did or was doing, for all he knew these were two racist assholes trying to kill him. And they were just that! But, the media wants you to believe Henry Green was just another thug. No matter if he had a gun or not; how many of you whites have a gun that you carry on you? How many of you whites would have pulled that gun if two unidentified white -let alone BLACK- men approached you not telling you who they were, and not in uniform?

Back to the current case against this racist cop.

In this video, we see this disgusting empty shell kicking a handcuffed, Black man by the name of DeMarco Anderson, who was NOT resisting when Rosen delivered the atrocious, appalling, racist and hate inspired blow to his head with his foot.Henry Green-BlackMen- Cops Murder DeMarco Anderson, Columbus Ohio, Tamir Rice

The police department in Columbus, Ohio say that Rosen’s off patrol as it is being investigated. Paid leave? I wonder. And yes, that is one cop restraining him, and the racist, psycho!

And this is the thing that adds salt to the wound to me is that while being restrained by one cop, DeMarco does the simple thing of asking a question, even giving this cop undue respect when he asked,,

“Why are you being aggressive, sir?” ….

And now enter Zachary Rosen. He bolts into camera view, and gives DeMarco a kick so hard DeMarco’s head that it bounces off of the curb!

And where is the media? If it does get attention, they are going to label him as a thug who was doing this or that and provoked it; which is BULL SHYT! This kind of behavior is NOT “justifiable” for there is NO REASON to ABUSE someone especially when RESTRAINED!

There have been many reports -including by the FBI- stating the KKK are invading police departments across the nation and have been for some time. I say the police ARE the KKK. This developing horror story that is all too damn typical proves one thing for sure: racism is alive in the police department, and it’s time we do more than MARCH AND ASK! ESPECIALLY UNDER THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This has been going on for hundreds of years! In this life alone I have been working on or documenting these cases or similar well over a decade! WHY ARE WE NOT HITTING THEM ECONOMICALLY??? WHY WHY WHY ARE WE NOT MORE UNIFIED???? CAN’T  WE PUT BLACK AND BROWN AND WHITE EVEN ASIDE FOR THE GREATER GOOD??? CAN’T GANGS CALL EVEN A TEMPORARY TRUCE TO UNITE AGAINST THIS GREATER EVIL!?

A Bit of Good News; Rikers Island to be Shut Down, FINALLY 

I am going to only post this, and not ruin the good news with depressing facts about America and prisons overall. That’ll be another post. 🙂

After years of abhorrent conditions and abuses, New York City will shut down the notoriously troubled Rikers Island jail.

New York City will close the Rikers Island jail facility,” Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Friday. “It will take many years. It will take many tough decisions along the way. But it will happen.”

The details of what will come to replace Rikers Island are still unclear. As the New York Times reported, a commission previously recommended that the jail be broken up into smaller jails located in each of the city’s five boroughs.

De Blasio was previously skeptical
 of shutting it down, but it seems like public pressure to do something about the jail — and perhaps a looming reelection campaign this year — pushed him to change his mind.

Rikers Island is notoriously awful

Rikers Island has earned a national reputation for its terrible conditions, with horror stories regularly coming out.

One such story was that of Kalief Browder, who killed himself in 2015, after his release. He spent three years in the facility even though he was never convicted of the robbery he was wrongly accused of at the age of 16. He claimed he spent more than 400 days in solitary confinement, and he attempted suicide at least six times while at the jail. “I didn’t get to go to prom, graduation, nothing,” Browder told New York City’s ABC 7. “I’m never going to get those years back. Never.”

A New York Times article headlined “Rikers: Where Mental Illness Meets Brutality in Jail” detailed several other examples of abuse at the jail. In one case, officers reacted to an inmate’s suicide attempt by beating him:

After being arrested on a misdemeanor charge following a family dispute last year, Jose Bautista was unable to post $250 bail and ended up in a jail cell on Rikers Island.

A few days later, he tore his underwear, looped it around his neck and tried to hang himself from the cell’s highest bar. Four correction officers rushed in and cut him down. But instead of notifying medical personnel, they handcuffed Mr. Bautista, forced him to lie face down on the cell floor and began punching him with such force, according to New York City investigators, that he suffered a perforated bowel and needed emergency surgery. “

De Blasio and other city officials had worked to try to fix the jail facility. But the pace of change was slow, and the jail could never shake its reputation as a place of historical brutality. Now Rikers Island is closing down, affecting the roughly 9,000 inmates held there on a daily basis.

Protesting Trump and His Cruelty regarding immigrants

Right on! This may not change things but there is still benefit in protests……. I never thought I’d write about a presidency but Trump was the worst of all the choices; others would have been bad but none would have so heartlessly and so blatantly executed laws such as he did to those who who under President Obama had made some form of positive changes and progress within society, that can be said at the VERY least.

all lives matter blue lives black lives white lives
That’s what “Make Amerikkka Great AGAIN would do for America has NEVER been great; but made slow but steady progress…before Trump came

I’ll be posting on a new blog site dedicated to exposing Amerikkka’s history; from racism to other…and of course, I’ll be posting a lot on Trump’s lies & why he isn’t my president. I’ll post a link up to this site when I’ve got it up politics but history as well.

This site of course is staying up this is my main site plus it’s in regards to far more than just politics and history. i just didn’t want people who don’t wanna see truth to get bombarded by it and i also didn’t want trump covering my website

Yet while those who wanted simply an equal opportunity and decent living conditions…those people are thrown away and labeled criminals!? While, the KKK sheet wearing fools are not only walking around the streets STILL TO THIS DAY; able to BRAG! but ALSO we can see them walking in “our” government, in the senate and congress openly admitting what they once yes did support but, of course, no more are they involved….
