Soon my information strategies, consistency and etc will be changing for the better 🙂 But, as I work on creating and finishing up my new website and YouTube page I still am going to share here; I may even leave this page up after my new one is complete. In fact, I shall do. But I digress…
A few days ago, I heard one of the most typical “I’m not racist, because I had Black friends!” … This is a classic racist statement and by no means does it declare you are not racist, sadly. I would also like to note this moron was defending Donald Trump, I heard him telling the person he was with that he is the best president we’ve had in at least “40 years” — LOL seriously man? What a joke.
He was a white/irish dude, a ‘good ol’ country boy’ who has nothing to worry about when it comes to his rotting white privilege that remains abused.
If you are a regular reader or if you watch my videos you should know I of course did not remain silent. How could I? As I’ve said before I shall say again; it doesn’t matter if you are in a room full of only light skinned people, white people or etc, or if you are in a room full of people with different backgrounds or ‘skin tones’; EITHER WAY IF ANTI-RACISM IS TRULY WHAT YOU STAND FOR, THEN YOU STAND FOR IT WHEN YOU ARE BOTH ON YOUR OWN AND WHEN YOUR NOT!
Only acting upon this so called “belief” that racism against nonwhites is wrong when there are people who aren’t light skinned or white is the same sort of logic the “Oh but I have Black friends so I can’t be racist!” crowd uses.
Your’e all in or you’re fake to me. But I strayed from my point here, again. Back on topic!
So, after hearing him behind me in line going on about Trump being some kind of god, when he brought in the, ‘you know he wasn’t racist because he used to have Black friends’ comment, I had to let him know that is complete and utter BS. During slavery women were ra*ed, but that doesn’t mean the preposterous white men weren’t racist by any damn means. That’s obviously just one example, a bit extreme but this topic is not a light one.
This guy and I both caught each other off guard, I think, because he wasn’t expecting me to turn around and lash into him with facts regarding his stupid argument and I wasn’t expecting him to just stand there and take it. He looked shocked and I felt confused, so I just turned back around and there was then an award winning silence for the rest of our time in line.
I’ve sat down with idiot racists before, I’ve confronted them many times but never have I got that “uhhh durrrr” look he gave me. I’m not sure what it meant but either way; we didn’t get anywhere other than I got him to silence his ignorance or stupidity.
Why am I sharing this story, you may ask? Because while I do not read nor watch “Fox News” I have seen the guy who replaced . Until tonight, I had never heard him however.
There are some supporters and people who get off on debating who states this doesn’t prove he is “with white nationalists” but I argue that indeed it does mean this and for 2 reasons:
1) I do have research I just don’t have time to type it up & fact check and
2) anyone who has support from any or all white nationalists, who has the views this idiot does on other human beings (i.e., immigrants, refugees, etc) because he wants his European culture preserved…
(which was a slip up there; an admission of what we already know and that is that white Europeans stole African history, made it their own and then denied the Blacks community the two most fundamental thing a community needs (just as a starting point). By stealing sense of identity, the history of a people, their home land, hell I could go on and on here… Stealing all of this, along with the equally as important traditions and cultures; replacing it with the European way of things; that means replacing what was once known with a world of of violence and meaningless savagery.)
After centuries of denying the African roots and history these white Europeans finally received their wish… in schools, during “Black History Month” what is the starting point? Where does it begin? With slaves, or going to “get” slaves.
Prior slavery these Africans were queens and kings, they are the foundation which everyone from the Greeks, Romans, Europeans to each one of us today can thank for without them we wouldn’t have the wisdom and advancement they blessed us with. Such as (but damn sure not limited to) the philosophical, financial, cosmological, mathematical, complex scientific (and so forth) systems.
These are things that should be taught during “Black History Month”- but going along with European tradition -which this ass complains about being taken away (Ohhh that enrages me!)- it is exactly what they (white Europeans) want taught and not taught.
This is why one reason I soon will have my own livestream and blog, teaching truths that have been buried; among many other things of the concern.
In sum, if this video doesn’t show a racist that is on Fox News, scaring white people who don’t think for themselves or who are already so brainwashed they are just too far gone but his hate rhetoric doesn’t help resolve anything for the better.
With white nationalists praising him left and right, there is something going on, underground… We need protection..
“The person said Nike will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick, including a signature shoe, and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity. The deal puts Kaepernick in the top bracket of NFL players with Nike.”
And let us not forget, Nike provides all NFL teams with both game day wear and other apparel, such as sideline wear. The partnership between the two was extended in March to run through 2028.
I think it’s both very depressing how heartless, selfish and mindless people are outraged at people who want to draw attention to an on going evil, especially to this degree. I would say it is almost funny but…it’s not funny at all, really. It’s tragic and the racism in this country that is tolerated -by the government alone- leads me to think about what the beautiful soul of Malcolm X said about civil rights vs human rights. Perhaps it is time to begin reaching for what he spoke of and was working on; appealing to the international community for assistance… Things since he was working for justice and equality have only grown more complex, but I also think in some ways we have an upper hand now.
But I digress. Back to those of you mad at Nike and Kaepernick for doing the right thing.
It’s so funny how many people are hating on Nike now; such as in Denver one store is “clearing out” their Nike stock in, and I quote, “protest.” Yeah. Nike’s losing a lot of sleep over having a clear conscience.
If you are going to protest, make it something worth while like, oh, I don’t know, protesting innocent men, women and children being murdered or beaten, seems like a nice and moral place to start. That and/or demanding these killers do not walk free. Refusing to accept them being treated as innocent the entire trial IF it makes it that far. Paid vacations for killers… All because they protect you and you have no reason to fear them? Hmmm… what about those they don’t serve OR protect?
People are outraged over the display Kaepernick in particular is making. Why should I respect a government or the traditions held by many american’s when this country, the law enforcement here, they don’t give a damn about what they do to others. The good hearted will speak out, and get fired. Is this really an american tradition I want to follow? Hell no. How can any of you really think this “american tradition” is more outrageous than humane treatment, equality and justice?
Police vow to “serve and protect”— wait, I’ll say it this way as it reminds me of a post I came across earlier. Some guy was complaining about all the negativity towards cops. He said something like, “meanwhile, the police save thousands a day and no one pays attention” or something. So I replied, in part, with what I reply to this, “it’s disrespecting the national anthem and the american tradition,” BS:
“And meanwhile, not happening in any legal jurisdiction but once a year, police officer kills and is actually punished for his crime. being sworn to protect the people, not slaughter them, one murder by a cop should carry a heavy sentence unless he can prove he was not to blame. police in america can be caught on camera killing and walk away with nothing. or go buy and sell the gun they used to kill an unarmed human with. police are never in the wrong in america, except with people who want justice…and that doesn’t happen. so stop whining as though you really have it bad. try being a fishermen. they die more often than police while working as do others. and defending is different from what police do. the few i have seen do good were fired. real just system. “
Point of that comment post is… 1) all the players who haven’t or don’t join in protest against a wrong that has been done in one form or another; under one name or another, for hundreds of years, every last one of them should feel a great deal of shame for not being man enough to do what they could… If all players protested even just in the NFL, think of how things would change… Money forces change. But money also made some too damn blind; or perhaps they already were.
Either way, no real man would just look away, letting victims of the inhumane, unethical and on going homicides continue to be targets. Moreover, they are saying it is acceptable behavior to NOT punish those who abuse and/or murder if they have a blue shield in front of them. It’s okay, they are saying, to not have law enforcement not report to the FBI annually the number of people who have lost their lives.
I am so grateful Nike has made the choices they have… They have selected NFL opening night as the night to air the first “Just Do It” commercial with Mr. Colin Kaepernick and others. Apparently Nike, as the following article describes, has always pushed for athletes to strive for more. Their actions give me reason to believe that rich as Nike as a company and such may be, they thus far are proving they actually are on the side of justice.
That being said, I’ll end my rant here and let you read on about the latest with Nike and Kaepernick. I hope others will come through… And that includes anyone reading this as well as myself… Be a hero, regardless of how popular or unpopular you are… Every good and every bad action matters. Do the right thing even if those around you are not…
Nike has unveiled its first “Just Do It” ad narrated by Colin Kaepernick, and a person familiar with the situation says the spot is scheduled to air during the NFL season opener on Thursday night and during football games throughout the season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the airing have…
If anyone doubted racism in the system, this alone would awaken them; granted they wanted to be woke and were ready to face truth. There is no surprise these psycho’s would get this low; especially when their leader is a white extremist calling himself “president.”
Using the tactic of fear through religion, hate, ignorance as well as the legal lies the mainstream media makes available, they further isolate people when it is uniting that we should be doing. Of course they don’t want there to be peace; what do they have to profit from that?
Not to mention this “has been” a functioning operation and a reality in the not so distant past. To be more specific we know during the Cold War era the CIA controlled the media, forcing everything from false stories and reports be given to the American people all the way to subconscious ‘mind control’ via subliminal messages and images through the media, this also includes more blatant messages through television and other forms of media. There is no way the government truly is keeping other agencies under control; especially when you have a psychopath as a so called president.
Not to mention, it has even become legal for the media to lie, and it actually is but more on that next time, we still have the same hate rhetoric being taken in as fact by either the hate filled or gullible people…or maybe they simply don’t care because it isn’t happening ‘to them’… SMH.
And here we are today. No changes except things have gotten a lot worse because too many are still asleep or unaware of the truth that rests before them if only they were to seek it.
As for this operation, during the Cold War unspeakable things happened to far too many people of most backgrounds… With who is sitting in the white house currently I do not believe the order to end Operation Mockingbird (decided at the 1977 hearings) has been or is honored today. Perhaps it gained a new name…sadly that’d really be all they would need to do, especially given most people say and do nothing.
Below is a piece of the story, followed by the link to the full. This needs to be news everyone is aware of so please share…
In one automated phone call heard by two media organizations, a man pretends to be Gillum speaking in stereotypical Black dialect while jungle music plays during the call.
“Well, hello there,” the call begins as the sounds of drums and monkeys can be heard in the background. “I is Andrew Gillum.”
“We Negroes . . . done made mud huts while white folk waste a bunch of time making their home out of wood an’ stone.”
The man promises to pass a law that will allow African-Americans to avoid arrest “if the Negro know fo’ sho’ he didn’t do nothin’.”
These automated calls are designed to promote fear among white voters in Florida and encourage them to support Gillum’s opponent, U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, a Republican who has been endorsed by President Donald Trumpand who supports Trump’s political ideology.
The recording ends with a man saying that the robocalls were paid for by the Road to Power, an Idaho-based website and podcast that promotes white supremacist and anti-Semitic content.
The robocalls are a clear indication of how racially incendiary the Florida governor’s race has become heading into the November mid-term elections. The campaign also underscores how Trump’s ongoing racial rhetoric has encouraged white supremacist groups to become more aggressive with promoting racist fear tactics like the robocalls.
DeSantis’ campaign spokesman, Stephen Lawson, called the robocalls “absolutely appalling and disgusting…and hopefully whoever is behind this has to answer for this despicable action.”

First, I apologize for my erratic, inconsistent posts and videos over the past year or so… I also thank all of you who have stayed around and still read despite my inconsistency. This is not how I like to work nor is it how I work under normal circumstances… Anytime I returned it was out of true outrage and desire to share knowledge and express my views on the issue at hand…
I shouldn’t have stopped doing this daily, but that is what will be happening from here on out. I may miss a day or so here and there, but I have finally escaped the torment of personal demons, so to speak, and can finally once again dedicate more time to writing and making videos…
I have so many notes and plans I was going to start in the past but never did that I now will be able to use… So, for the interested here is what is upcoming 🙂
As noted, I will be posting daily (for the most part). Below are the goals and mission statement (more or less) of my work on this website and other related sites:
The first and foremost goal of this page is to expose truth that no one wants to look at, that gets over looked or is being used in deceitful ways to serve hate, bigotry and racism. The truths I focus primarily on as of now are police brutality, racism, the legal system, abuse of power and media deceit. NEW to this page will be the posting of history and positive truths… But more on this below.
So… A quick brief ….
Be a voice for the unheard… I am extremely passionate and cannot hold my tongue very easily…
- I plan on continuing to share stories from the present and past; the past being former cases I worked on (racism and police brutality / police killings).
Never forget* and these people all deserve to not only have their stories told but also to never be forgotten… Additionally, I want to look back at the cases and see where the abusers and murderers are now; I am willing to bet most if not all of the cops involved were not punished…Learning if they are still abusing people legally will be disgusting and interesting; but definitely something I believe will prove -as if more proof is needed- that the legal system is biased and favor law enforcement, despite the extreme detrimental impact it clearly has in the lives of those in the Black and brown communities.
- While I primarily focus on racism and police related issues, I will be writing on and sharing information regarding all unjust behavior regardless of the perpetrator. The prison system, laws and open racism are all forms of injustice I will also be speaking on.
- Black History Month is a joke and an insult to history and to the ancestors who came before. Additionally, it teaches nothing except giving a brief overview of one aspect of Black history, as though slavery is where Black history begins, as if this is all there is when in fact this country so many claim to be patriotic to wouldn’t exist in the manner it does today if not for the Black community. So I plan on creating another page that will be linked to this page sharing important historical achievements, devastation, achievements and truths buried way too deep- both good and bad- by the government and education system.
- Finally, I will be doing the same for African history. There are many reasons for this, including my personal passion and love of African history and culture… Despite the truths of the ancestors, this is not something well taught (if taught at all) and I feel it is important to share the knowledge I find… The reason for “Black History Month” and the denial of true history is summed up best by George Orwell:
“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
I will probably reword this at another time for I am sure I can find better words… But as of now that is what is to come… Some of my posts will be videos, but I am not sure how I am going to go about that as of yet so… However, one thing I am also seriously considering is teaching history as noted above online via videos and/or via “classes” online.
LET KNOWLEDGE DROP…and my father/mentor/inspiration speaks…
- I plan on continuing to share stories from the present and past; the past being former cases I worked on (racism and police brutality / police killings).
They are Black! They Are Beautiful! And, they too have a dream!
The current tension over protecting the dreamers is merely an extension of an historical conflict between those in America who support the sentiments espoused on the base of the Statue of Liberty and those who want a country that fulfills the most egregious desire of White Supremacists, to purge the country of non-white residents on their road to fulfilling their vision of an all-White America.
Last week, the nation bore witness when the president dispelled all doubt about the racist ideology that undergirds the agenda of his white house. Trump allegedly demanded to know during a White House meeting on immigration, why he should accept immigrants from “shithole” (Black) countries like Haiti or Africa–I’m not sure if the president realizes Africa is not a country but a continent—rather than White countries like Norway.
This was not the first time the president put his full racist attitude on display. The country saw it throughout the 2016 presidential campaign and again and again since he took office.
The president’s apparent attitude toward people of color is not only telling but also threatening to the hundreds of thousands of dreamers at risk of deportation since he ended DACA last September. Although the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals blocked Trump’s efforts to stymie the DACA program last week, the ultimate fate of the dreamers remains uncertain.
Amid the discussions on the probable racist ideology permeating the white house and the president’s implementation of obvious racist immigration policies that have resulted to date, there are nearly 3.7 million Black immigrants who account for about 8.4 percent of all immigrants—many of them from the very countries the president recently disparaged.
According to a report by the Center for American Progress, among the largest groups of Black immigrants, 48 percent are from the Caribbean, 43 percent from various African countries, and 3.6 percent from South America. Black immigrants also make up 25 percent of at least five major metropolitan areas including Boston, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, and Seattle.
The president has also inferred that immigrants from countries like Norway are preferable. He never qualified that statement. However, if his preference is based on qualifications rather than race, we must assume he is unaware of the fact that Black immigrants have as high a rate of education and employment as any other group of immigrants.
For example, 29 percent of Black immigrants have a bachelor’s degree or higher compared to 30 percent from White nations, and at least 29 percent have some college or an associates degree compared to only 19 percent from other countries.
Another area where the president is ill informed is in regard to employment. The reality is that at least 73 percent of Black immigrants sixteen years of age and older are employed, compared to 67 percent of all immigrants and only 64 percent of those born in America.
Currently, there are about 11,000 Black immigrants under DACA protection, although the Migration Policy Institute has estimated there are 36,000 African immigrants eligible for the deferred action.
There are those who believe African Americans should not sit idly by on the issue of immigration. Make your voices heard on this issue. Call your congressman, attend a rally, raise your voice in this discussion.
As the president and his supporters continue to push their racist agenda, minorities can not afford to sit silent. We have learned from history—to be silent is to be complicit. We must speak out before silence morphs from complicity to something more sinister. As history has also taught us—silence, equals death.

If ever there was a time to make note of a very important social event… And this
occurs on the upcoming 4th and 5th of November… Black is Back Rally, march and conference in Washington, D.C., has arrived for the 8th year! If you think this is a year to skip out on, I ask you to please reconsider… Things have been escalating for for hundreds of years, but as we clearly see, things are getting even more increasingly out of control regarding hate crimes, racism and this government. So, any glimmer of hope a select few may have believed in should be more than clearly gone now (if it were ever even there.)
In my opinion it is more vital now than ever for social action and unity… SO! Below you will find all the information you need regarding the 8th Annual Black is Back Rally, March & Conference starting November 4th.
Visit the Official Page if you are looking for information regarding travel arrangements and such.
” This October 22nd, stand with thousands across the country to express our collective outrage, creativity, and resistance in response to the crimes of this system. On October 22nd, WEAR BLACK, FIGHT BACK! ” – The October 22 Coalition
October 22 was been an important day for me for many, many years. It is the day of national police brutality protest. I’ve been taking part of this for at least a decade, missing a few years here and there yes but I never am away in spirit, usually always there in person, but sometimes sadly have had to miss. But I digress. I know protesting isn’t going to solve this issue.
However, I do think today is a day of duty to make sure everyone knows how angry we are, and that we are not going away. This protest has been going on since the late 1990s, and with more and more cities joining in, I hope everyone has a productive but also a safe day. Watch yourself and please know your rights for what they are worth. Protesting rights can be found here. [For what it is worth…Again, please be safe…]
Also tomorrow there is another important event going on in New York City. A court case over yet another murder by the police begins and as many people as possible are needed to support the family and cause. More information below, followed by a list of cities and your local events. First though, let’s take care of the two places I call home, but I’m gonna do it in reverse order, Newark first..
Newark, NJ, being one of those cities, as the poster below suggests. Today, October 22, at 3 pm in Newark, NJ,
“WE STAND UNITED IN DEFENSE OF OUR NEW CIVILIAN REVIEW BD AND WILL RALLY @ THE LINCOLN MONUMENT @ 3PM ” < Newark, NJ
And NEW YORK! STARTS AT 12pm TODAY!
The page also included the following so I might as well: Take the 2/3 to Clark Street or Borough Hall, 4/5 to Borough Hall, A/C/F to Jay Street-Metrotech, R to Court Street.
March to Barclays Center for second rally follow. [Event Page HERE.]
And before the list of the rest of the cities, please note there is an important event is happening tomorrow, the 23rd. Please show up and show our numbers are not going down… We need the community now to unite more than ever…
“…in an upcoming court case against NYPD Officer Wayne Isaacs, who murdered Delrawn Small on July 4th of last year. The trail will start on 10/23 and is expected to last for 2-3 weeks. For morning attendance, arrive before 9 am to get through security/lines. Afternoon sessions begin after lunch around 2pm. Each day will probably recess sometime between 4-5pm.
Location: Brooklyn Supreme Court, 320 Jay Street, 2nd floor “Ceremonial Courtroom” Each day will probably recess sometime between 4-5pm.Txt (646) 302-8959 for any question you may have.
All Trains to Brooklyn Borough Hall “
You can access tomorrows event information by clicking here, which will take you to, like most of these event pages will take you to, the related Facebook group page, opening in a new tab.
I truly, truly hope we over flood the courts. I’m curious, how many of you can recall Delrawn Small’s killing? Especially those outside New York… Okay so later today I’ll either be putting up a post in Delrawn’s memory, or making a video; one of the two… After seeing how few people remember or know of this, it reminds me back when I was working in 2004…no one knew. And the few that did…
Anyway… For the rest of America, here ya go. If your city isn’t below, click here for the October 22 website and see what’s up; if nothing is going on, consider starting your own…Speak out, we need VOICES. We need action, honestly, but that’s another story…
