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.
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.”

You can read the reasons for the above quotes and so much more if you click here for the page which I found it on. It contains not the article in a more enlightening light, but also a great wealth of information to inform and explain the above comments and quotes. Again… please do not forget to click here and read the knowledge of the post!

Finally, people are speaking the truth many of us who aren’t asleep knew from the moment that psycho decided he should be any form of government official. We are citizens of America right? Answer me this, then. As “Americans” is it not too much to do exactly what they say we are to do if this ever happens; this being a racist, sexist, fat, orange psychopathic tyrant.
I am ashamed to say I am American, I’ve been since I was 14 and saw how cops have a badge to kill innocent people; especially if those people are not white, and then walk away from the crime with the same bloody guns in their slimy, blood stained hands. If you’re not American and reading this, please know this government does NOT represent ALL of the people! I must post this because I’ve got a busy schedule however I also have announcements to share that will be propelling this site and new sites as well as upcoming events and talks, among other things. I have been away for far too long but it was worth it… My seeking, studying, and continuously searching the vast REAL knowledge most Americans are never taught and too many do not even want to hear and growing my spiritual connection by the blessings of our Afrikan Ancestors;…all of this has made me stronger in all regards and my purpose -though it was already known- will now be fulfilled. And that means my changing in ways that only hurt my purposes; one being, sharing knowledge.
More on that really soon. For now, here is what we all need to be using the government of America’s founding documents to rid ourselves from the police state and truancy of Trump. It DOES matter. We are going backwards; say what you will of President Obama, but he never tried to reverse American progress, well being or health care. He was harassed with hate and racism as his precious little princesses did/do. But President Obama, being a man with integrity and maturity -not to mention stable mind- didn’t go off the handle, even though he would have had more legit reason to be angry at the media and others for he had horrible comments and lies being spoken.
He let his actions speak. No one has to agree with the sickness of Syria and other countries; but as a whole… you can simply look at Obama in the eyes and then look into the eyes of Donald Trump…And the person whom is a man of value and an actual man.
While I’ll leave out -for now- what words I’d use to explain what Donald Trump is, I’ll start an upcoming posts topic by adding;
“…the person whom is a man of value and an actual man. Most people will know that I mean, of course, the missed President, Barack Obama. Trump is honestly a sorry and pathetic excuse and misrepresentation of what it means to be a “man.” He also is a horrific and a vile, disgusting, delirious joke of humans as a whole.
Trump has had his ‘power’ if you wanna call it that; but now it’s a position within the government… To support him is to support those he also has -or tries to have- in office… All whom are women haters, racist whites with lazy European ancestors who did not build Amerikkka, but sat and got fat while treating men, women and children of legal enslavement, abuses spoken and unspoken, violence and fear unknown…
Trump with Sessions and Pence alone are walking images of the overseers, of the legal/government officials that were hunting down, murdering, abusing, misusing, brain washing, stealing and raping Black human beings. Not forgetting, these Black men AND women are why we have the most iconic sites in America; not just Washington DC; not just the white house, but ALL OVER America. And they did it to stay alive.
How things are regarding cops, prison, school, jobs, community, life or death for being alive; life or death being a risk if you dare do something as simple as go for a walk to get skittles or if you have a Pokemon card in your 12 year old hand. (Former case)
More writing with citations soon. Take action; and if you have any action that needs a volunteer; please let me know.
“It will be us who makes America great again.”
Introduction video to a series of videos I’m making- these will be regarding Black history in terms of the founding of America and the building of all the crap so many whites claim to have accomplished – but didn’t. My goal is to spread awareness of TRUE knowledge; the tragic and good, and give acknowledgment to the history of those whom racist whites want people to forget or not know about.
Additionally, I want to expose the horrors that the White House and Washington DC did during these founding days, hidden by lies but now it’s time to expose with truth and proof. The evil shall be exposed, and the truth and those whom suffered shall be given the long overdue awareness racists try to hide… I want to note also these videos will include more than just physical matters… I hope I do this well; at least I know I am spreading truth and truthful knowledge is POWER!!
For those curious about my thoughts on Thanksgiving and the current on-goings regarding the Native’s and the land the government greedily is trying to snatch back once they realized it wasn’t worthless… Growing up, I’ve always said that Thanksgiving was my “fuck the world” day and that every day otherwise I was grateful.
In this video below, my friend and big brother spells it out beautifully and far better than I ever could in the following. Listen and question what you believe… Question what society has taught…
And no, I still won’t be celebrating Thanksgiving.
Looking through some of Tupac’s writings I found this short essay he wrote…sadly I believe it to still be relevant today so I decided I’d read and share…
“People are already experiencing skin lesions, hair loss, chemical-induced hypertension, vision loss and depression. Children exposed to lead experience developmental impacts such as lowered IQ, decreased ability to pay attention, and diminished academic achievement.”
First, there is a petition and short article below my rant. I apologize for talking so much but the lack of humanity makes me so disgusted. Anyway!
So before I had so much of a chance to do in depth research regarding Flint, Michigan, a press release stating the mayor has called for a state of emergency due to widespread lead-poisoned water. Sadly, this isn’t isolated to this one “incident” and yes those others are here in the states, happening now too. I’ll have more on Flint and others shortly…
For now, the people of Flint are suffering physical, mental and living with fear due to unsafe, unclean & undrinkable water.
Yes, of course there is bottle water; which not all can afford, but even those who obtain it are being robbed intentionally as this water pollution could have been stopped and prevented.
To those who think like the person whom originally brought up bottled water being the solution, I again say, temporarily there is some bottled water, but for how long?
Moreover, think of the money people & corporations make when everyone needs their “product”. That is one of many things I’ll be researching and sharing very soon. The people are not only being abused but also used for heartless money. That’s obvious I believe, but again I’ll have more research regarding Flint and too many other places soon.
Article below, petition with it… I will have a proper post up soon with information not shared and also a video. Remember, this is blatant racism; and it kills. Water poisons are not the only risk factor too many Black Americans are faced with when speaking on environmental issues in the community. This is barely gracing the tip of it… That should enrage and scare you, we must fight, educate; we can get change but we have to fight for it.
Of course Black Lives DO Matter; that’s why issues like this are even more important. There’s no way all these issues which mainly and greatly target the Black community are happening “by chance” or for any other reason.
Logic and living in America even if your white, you should be able to see clearly how real and how horrific things are. Racism, hate crimes and murders allowed and executed by the US government within the Black community. again, disproportionately. And don’t forget, the majority of these victims are unarmed, or a kid, or ‘they ran and he may have had a gun’ or because the cop ‘thought he had a gun but turned out to be skittles’.
American history, TRUE Black History proves both the environmental issues and the police being able to kill innocent people at will and walk away to be more than a coincidence. During the civil rights movement in the 60s the FBI documented wanting to divide and conquer and to ‘get rid of’ the Black community. Those documents were leaked and now can be found; official papers writing their true, racist feelings and sick desires.
Right now it seems the government hasn’t changed much when usually it is the Black community whom are the targets; whom have to deal with loved ones being murdered for no reason, even children and the elderly, only to add salt to the wound by watching the murderer be released after being found not guilty. After experiencing the ‘hardships’ of the police’s tragic but expected paid vacation causes such as having nothing to do with ones time. But more frequently than not they need not worry; most cops are headed back in with their badge to kill on their chest within a few weeks, on the streets again is the murderer, even though they were caught committing a hate crime, a murder, a beating, etc.
So screw anyone who thinks environmental issues, such as the above or police brutality, aren’t related greatly to racism has no right to spread their self pity and lies. I can prove the racism and give numbers on how Blacks and whites are impacted by environmental related issues. Thing is they can’t offer any form of research or factual evidence unless it was ‘self made’ or created by their friend. It baffles me we have people who actually can say racism isn’t real or involved in this… Wow.
The mayor of Flint, MI just declared a state of emergency due to widespread lead-poisoning caused by unsafe drinking water.
Public health studies have shown that lead levels have doubled in Flint since the city switched its public water supply to the Flint River in April 2014, due in part to the negligence of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
While the city’s water has been switched to a different source, it’s not certain that the water is now safe. Even worse, the public health crisis the lead-laden water has created has not been addressed. The most vulnerable to lead poisoning are children and pregnant women.
As the mayor pointed out in her declaration, the effects of lead poisoning are significant, irreversible and create huge needs for increased social services, such as special education and mental health services, and the juvenile justice system.
People are already experiencing skin lesions, hair loss, chemical-induced hypertension, vision loss and depression. Children exposed to lead experience developmental impacts such as lowered IQ, decreased ability to pay attention, and diminished academic achievement.
This petition calls on Gina McCarthy, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to take control of ensuring the safety of Flint’s water from the Michigan DEQ. Additionally, the EPA must work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services; and the state of Michigan to develop a funded, long-term, lead action plan to ensure that the citizens of Flint will not be abandoned.
Obviously, I am not one who usually defends law enforcement. This reason simply is because of the abuse, killings and lack of apathy they seem to have as a whole. Generalization’s are never 100% – but the 1% of good cops sadly cannot make me trust cops. Anyhow, the point of this post is, GUNS!
