Re-calibrating our minds!

Black folks,

We’re gonna have to get back to our essence as a people. We live in a world where we are forgetting the fact that we have our own subculture within American society, and letting our own principles deteriorate. We live in a society where white men and white women are rewarded for their bad behavior, while black men and black women are severely punished for less offensive behavior. I don’t know how many times we’re gonna compare and contrast the injustice handed out to us for minor offenses and crimes, such as a black woman voting twice and receiving 5 years in prison for doing so, while a white woman who voted twice for Trump received probation. Black people are sent to prison for the most minor infractions. There are many other examples, but I’m tired of making the comparisons. We are too caught up with being American. In essence, too many of us are starting to believe racism no longer exists. America is one of the most racist countries in the world, because America doesn’t know how to deal with a melting pot these immigrants from England tried to establish long ago to benefit them, when they founded this country.  Immigrants were welcomed here because of cheap labor and white laziness, just as the slaves were brought here from Africa, and that has not changed. Your pride and patriotism should be to your heritage first, not a country. Men like Trump and Kavanaugh are rewarded with a presidency and a judgeship for having behaved badly in society, but more importantly for having sexually violated women. Cosby is the only person serving time in prison for having violated women. The list of white boys who sexually violated women is way longer, but none of them received priority ahead of Cosby in the justice system. Having said that, I want to be clear that my job is to shed light on what doesn’t seem too obvious to black people. We need to let go of that old “James Dean bad boy” bullshit. White men that act badly in society end up being president like Bush, Clinton and Trump. Black men that act badly in society are doing 25 to life in prison.

The whole notion that black women believe dating “thugs or bad boys” is more exciting, is the biggest crock being sold in the black community. That notion is one of the many cancers eating away at the black community. We are raising our sons to feel bad and insecure for being smart, articulate, intelligent, drug-free and upstanding, while our girls are being raised to want a “good for nothing” bad boy, because they bring a false sense of excitement to their lives. Black men are calling each other corny because whenever one displays his high intellect. We even allow our vernacular to determine the level of corniness from a black person. That’s some dumb shit! Has anyone ever taken the time to examine the people who believe themselves to be bad boys? Half of them are drug addicts and they are in and out of prison. Is that what we want to reduce the black community to? Let’s take a timeout to re-calibrate our minds and start living with sense and a purpose. American society welcomes your bad boy sons and daughters, because they are the future labor force behind the prison walls. Your daughters will become single mothers, because the bad boys they yearn for will be spending time in a prison away from their children. These fatherless children will grow up to repeat a destructive cycle that will be endless, and only beneficial to the oppressive white regime that seeks out free labor in all its intent, and the subjugation of our people at all cost.

White people, but white feminism specifically, have introduced so many different things that are destructive to the black community, we’re not even conscious enough to realize their destructive affects on us as a group. White women have normalized being a slut, and many of them are being rewarded for it, handsomely. The unfortunate truth is, some white women enjoy having a train run on them by a group of men. I went to school with them, and some of them wanted to have the weirdest experiences on campus. That’s not who we are, though. How many men must a woman sleep with, before we consider her morals to be loose? Black women were never loose. The women considered loose in my neighborhood probably slept with less than a handful of men. They usually moved somewhere else, because their reputation preceded them. Now, black women are bragging about sleeping around with a bunch of men, without realizing that destructive behavior is also one of the factors in the high HIV rate in the black community. Men do it too, and we are no good for it as well. The one thing black women always held sacred was their reputation. No black woman ever wanted to be known as a loose woman who slept with every man she met. However, white women introduced “slut-shaming,” so now we have our daughters going out there defending the fact that they can sleep with as many men as possible as they want to, without realizing that most men don’t want to settle down with a woman who has been around. Now, white men are different. they don’t mind if Becky gave head to every guy on campus. They’ll still marry her. Her slutty experience is to his benefits. But please take a few minutes to check out the moral compass of white men? Trump is the president, and so was Bill Clinton. Kavanaugh is a Supreme court Justice. These men have never told the truth in their lives, and they are deplorable and despicable in so many ways. White people know this and these men have reached the mountain top, in spite of. Do you want your sons to follow their morals? Do you think Obama could’ve become president if he had half the allegations that were brought up against Trump? Are you aware of their double standard? If your sons are raised with the same values and morals as these men, they will end up behind bars. What will then be the standard for the daughters these boys plan to marry or have children with? We are losing ourselves trying to assimilate to whiteness. We are following the most morally bankrupt group in society, and soon, black people will have absolutely no morals or principles left. Their lack of morality is documented throughout history, and around the world.  Have you not been paying attention to the fact that there was a war on drugs when they infested the black community with crack, but they called an opioid crisis when white people started shooting heroin? They have their standards and how to deal with white people, and they create a different substandard for us. We are treated differently in this society, and the hurdles are not going anywhere. It is up to us to consciously raise our children with morals, so they can avoid the traps that affect black people, but have no negative influence on the lives of white people. In addition, we must unite. We have to have the same objective when it comes to fighting injustice. No black person should be left on a stranded island alone.

White people have also introduced us to the term “fat-shaming.” Are we not the group most susceptible to diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a bunch of other diseases associated with obesity? Why would you buy into their whole “fat-shaming” bullshit? No! It’s time to get healthy, and stay healthy, because we no longer have grandmothers and grandfathers in the black community that can positively influence the next generation. The wisdom of our grandparents is leaving us way too soon. As kids, we used to enjoy going to grandma and grandpa’s house to listen to old stories about the family, and the struggles they faced, which encouraged many of us to be more resilient. Now, the grandmothers and grandfathers are dropping dead in their 40’s and 50’s. We can’t continue to allow white feminism to dictate how we live. We need to take control of our lives and work toward unification as a group, in order to strengthen our position in society. We have to stop the bullshit, or we’re gonna perish following what they do. When was the last time any white man was shot dead by white cops after murdering a bunch of people? Last I checked, all the murderous white men were apprehended alive. How many black people have been murdered by white cops without as much as having possession of a gun? Too fucking many! If you are blinded to our position in this country, you need to have your head examined. We are doing the most to act like we have the same rights as white people in this country, but they’re also doing the most to show us that our rights are not equaled under the law. Too many black people are quick to defend white supremacy, and suppressing the rights of their own people, in order to gain acceptance by white supremacy. Poor Kanye. He has lost his damn mind! We all need to wake up, before we all lose our minds.

The allure of white feminism

I’m not sure why we are shocked that Trump nominated an alleged habitual rapist to the supreme court. Trump himself has admitted on camera to violating plenty of women, so the moral compass doesn’t exist there. Trump has never respected women, and neither has Kavanaugh. Still, white women came out in droves to vote Trump into office. I’m reading the reaction of Senator Susan Fallen (I mean Collins), and Senator More-crap-ski (I mean Murkowski) to the sham FBI report on Kavanaugh, I can’t help but think that these fake white feminists add to the ambivalence forced upon rape victims in their delay to report the crime against them. Dr. Ford, a white woman, is receiving this kind of treatment at the hands of white men and white women, I can only imagine Anita Hill never stood a chance. The most disrespected and disregarded woman in the world is the black woman. And that’s even by some black men as well. That shit needs to change. White women have never held white men accountable for their actions, which is why there are so few women in politics and in positions of authority, while women make up the majority of the population.

I’m going to give a little credit to Melania Trump for not taking front and center in the media to defend her husband against rape allegations, but at the same time, I also understand her marriage to Trump is more of a financial arrangement that benefits both of them. Only an arrangement and dire situation could force a woman like that into the arms of an asshole like Trump. When you are in a mutually beneficial financial arrangement, you tend to forfeit your voice and opinion. Nobody believes Trump could get a woman without the inherited wealth from his parents. Trump would be a nobody, because he lacks the mental fortitude to run anything successfully. Having said that, let me focus on the allure of white feminism that has caught on with some black women. First of all, it’s important to highlight the fact that Hillary Clinton is as fake a feminist as they come. In addition, many of the white female liberals coming for Kavanaugh never once stood up to Hillary for having supported her rapist husband. Hillary has been a staunch defender of her rapist and sexual predator lying husband from the time he got involved in politics. Bill has been abusing women since his days as a governor in Arkansas. Monica Lewinski was a naive, impressionable young woman who was exploited by Bill Clinton, that he lied about, but we want to push that under the rug, as if it never happened. The myriad of sexual female victims at the hands of Bill Clinton are also forgotten. One of the reasons Bill Clinton couldn’t come out and address the sexual predator that is Trump during his wife’s campaign, is because the pot couldn’t call the kettle black. For some odd reason, Hillary has been painted as the face of white feminism, and black women have bought it.

If we shall examine white feminism, we will see that it is the backbone of white supremacy, and imperialism. Despite Bill Clinton’s despicable behavior toward women throughout his political career, his fake feminist of a wife only used his political clout to further her political career. The women agenda has always been secondary to her. Now, after seeing the reaction of the female senators to the Kavanaugh report, I am appalled that these white women have more of an allegiance to a party of nincompoops, instead of the women suffrage movement. White women are very comfortable with white men leading them every which way, because they understand they come a close second behind these white men in society. They stand in solidarity with these men, because of the benefits they reap from the positions of power these men hold. Hillary Clinton sure is a benefactor of Bill’s political clout. She got a chance to become senator of a state that she wasn’t even born and raised in, and the most popular state in all of America, New York. She also held the highest position in government as a woman, as secretary of state, in the Obama administration. So, if you look closely, white feminism works in accord with white supremacy, which benefits both sides. On the other hand, we also need to examine how white feminism destroys the black family and enslaves the black woman in society.

I know some black women enjoy the idea of being part of a movement that will empower them, and create some kind of leverage for them that will increase their voice in society. But have they really looked at the gains from being part of a feminist movement? White women still earn .80 cents on the dollar behind white men, but black women only earn .65 cents on the dollar. Still, they are the most educated group in society. How do you feel you are gaining anything when you’re still earning .15 cents less than white women, and .35 cents less than white men? In addition, black women have been forced to take over the role of head of household in over 60% of the homes in the black community. How do you like them apples? White men have forced black women to take on the dual roles of parenting, while extending the wage gap between them and black men. For all the black women looking for a black man that can earn enough to support his family, the system is designed to force you into a position to look down on that man, because he’s no longer earning more than the black woman. It’s difficult to expect someone to be the head of your household when they have to rely on your financial contributions to support the household. This is not the black man’s fault, because they took away the trade schools and the other industries that used to train black men for better jobs. Now, black men are forced to rely on the salaries of black women for their survival and the maintenance of their family. It’s taxing to both, black men and black women, because it takes greater understanding for a woman to appreciate a man who’s earning less money than her. College debt adds to the financial difficulties of the black family as well. While black women are forced into getting multiple degrees in order to climb the corporate ladder, they’re also amassing huge amounts of debt. Black men are no longer learning skills that were passed down from their fathers and grandfathers. They are going to college, but they’re not earning a fair salary after graduation, because the system is still paying them less money than white men with high school diplomas. White men are always in positions to make sure their children and grandchildren benefit from their careers or jobs. Most coaches in the NFL, NBA, college football and basketball, hire their sons as assistants and teach them the basics, so these kids can climb the financial ladder through nepotism. Black coaches aren’t afforded that luxury. John Thompson was the exception to the rule, and his son didn’t last long in his position. White coaches and white men are generally given multiple chances at failure, while black men are cut off if they don’t succeed the first time. You noticed I didn’t say that white men are given multiple chances at successful attempts. I said failing attempts, because a white man is always given more time to obtain success.

The system is set up to castrate the black man, and ensure a false sense of security and dominance into the minds of black women, which ultimately enhances their desire to force black men out of their lives and the lives of their children. While black women are quick to leave their cheating or nonproductive husbands, white women are staying put to work on their marriage, and to ensure that their children have a father figure in the home. White women also usually have the support of extended family. A white wife could reach out to her father, her uncle and other family members to try to seek help for her husband to get a job, or some kind of assistance to balance his life. Black women don’t have that support, because too often other people rely on them for support. We are generations behind white people, and they want to make sure it stays that way. It’s up to us to change our destiny. Most of these white politicians in Washington are cheaters, and their wives know that. Men like Kavanaugh is not an anomaly. Their “boyish” behavior starts early in life, and white women are raised in a way to accept their bullish behavior toward them. Black women on the other side, are not raised in any way, because too often the black father is absent from the home, because black women don’t often think about the consequences of being a single mother, and they are quick to turn to the system for assistance to raise their children. They’re still failing to realize the system wasn’t built to assist them in building a strong black family. Even your black pastor is receiving tax credit from the government, so he’s not your ally. Your liberal politicians are passing legislation that will imprison the father of your children, even when he’s unemployed and unable to support his children financially. These white people are even trying to take away your rights to abortion, because they understand they have the rights to remove your children from you, if you can’t afford to take care of them. Your children will essentially become part of the prison labor force that they are so determined to grow in the next few years. We’re so caught up with what’s in front of us, we often fail to look at the bigger picture.

There are a lot of pitfalls, hurdles and traps set up by the system that work against the black family. Black feminism is the latest one that’s being encouraged by a group of white women who are supporters of white supremacy. You should see the faces of white liberal females when they are asked about their reaction to the rape allegations against Bill Clinton. They don’t know what to say, because Bill was no better than Trump. Don’t for one minute think that white men have a different set of morals because they belong to different political parties. They don’t. They are both power hungry, controlling and want to dominate the world. Black women are the biggest losers in this charade, because they’re not doing all they can to make sure they form an alliance with black men. The black man is the head of the snake. Once he is removed, the body is rendered useless. There shouldn’t be any allure to white feminism for black women, but people like Hillary Clinton and many other white women, have managed to manipulate the black women into believing that their fight and plight also serve the best interest of the black women. I call bullshit! How come these white feminists haven’t stood with the Hispanic women who have been forced into single motherhood because their husbands are being deported over bullshit by Obama and Trump?

The evidence is clear: the invasion of crack cocaine under Reagan; Mass incarceration under Clinton; Faith based initiative under Bush; Mass deportation under Obama; and now everything they can think of under Trump.  Don’t for a minute believe deportation under Obama only affected Hispanic people. Many black families have been destroyed by Obama, because black fathers and husbands from Africa and the Caribbean were deported in masses under the Obama administration. The system is designed to castrate the black family, but they always try to make it alluring enough to pull black women into the fold, in order to weaken the black man and the black family. The divorce rate in the black community is at an all time high. The marriage rate in the black community is at an all time low. The single parent household in the black community is the highest in the country. Black women are the only group of women who earn more than their black male counterparts. Successful Black women are the only group of women responsible for more extended family members. Black women are the only group of women carrying the burden for the next generation. Black women are the only group of women burdened with the plight of white women. Black women are the only group of women forced into a position to support white feminism, while the white feminists are nowhere to be found when injustice takes place against people like Sandra Bland, Anita Hill and many others. They don’t even stand with Maxine Waters when she dares to stand against these white men in Congress. Until we get our shit together and start understanding the system for what it is, black women will be standing in court in front of white judges who want to remove black fathers from their homes, take away the driving privileges of black men, forcing them to be unemployed and into prison camps, where only the state will benefit from their labor. The black woman can get no money from a man who’s behind bars for her child, and her child will not have a father figure in his/her life. Please look at the complete picture when you’re evaluating a situation. Stop allowing them to dictate what’s best for your family.

 

Society is designed to force you to barely keep your head above water.

Most people can’t wait to get a better job that pays them more money. Across the world, no matter where we live, everyone is looking for better opportunities and more money. Some of us would take more money even if we don’t enjoy what we’re doing. Sometimes we don’t want more money because we need it, we want more money because we are greedy. This greed is something that is passed on to us from the people who marginalized us a long time ago.  And the more money we have, the more lavish we live for absolutely no reason. Sometimes we live so lavishly, we don’t even take the future of our own kids into consideration. How many celebrities or rich people died penniless, leaving their children in poverty after they earned millions of dollars throughout their careers? Greed also breeds selfishness. Still, we live in a world where capitalism has become the driving force behind our financial demise. Capitalism is nothing but greed, and greed has affected us in the most negative way, going all the way back to when white people discovered Africa was full of resources that they wanted to steal to build their wealth and country. And that included free labor as well. On the surface, greed is sold as nothing more than drive, but how driven must a person be to try to force the rest of the world into poverty, so they can amass all the wealth in the world for themselves? Does it make sense that we have people taking dumps in gold toilets, while other folks are digging through piles of trash for their next meal? We really don’t give a fuck about that, as long as it is not us. We see the guy sitting on the gold toilet as driven, while we look down on the person digging through the trash as lazy. We don’t ever make the correlation between the two. We never hold the guy sitting on the gold toilet responsible for the guy who’s forced to find his next meal through a pile of trash. Africa serves as the best metaphor for the world’s greed and capitalism.                                                                        The world’s interpretation of “drive” is something that everyone is forced to thrive for. However, not all driven people are good people. Bernie Madoff was very driven, but his drive led to the destruction of many lives that he ruined financially. The Walton family makes billions through their Walmart chains, but their workers have to supplement their income with food stamps. Jeff Bezos overwork his employees and pay them wages that they can’t even live on, but we see nothing wrong with that. He’s even designing new stores that require less human interaction, eliminating more jobs than ever, but we only see his genius. We look at Jeff as a financial guru who became the richest man in America. Slavery in any other name is still slavery. The entire continent of Africa produced free labor for most of the developed countries around the world, and it was driven by greed. Most of the developed countries in the world are exploiting other underdeveloped countries around the world. Another thing, racism is bred from greed and capitalism. In order for white people to justify the maltreatment of black people and others, they use racism to apply stereotypes that have been debunked by logical thinking and proven research. The manipulation of race superiority has forced the world to accept that certain groups of people deserve their position in life. For God’s sake, Kanye is brainwashed enough to believe that Trump is good for America. We can look at that in more than two ways: Kanye first rapped about black men who made it and turning their backs on black women for white girls, but he turned around and decided to allow his art to imitate life by marrying a white girl. Back then, he could rap about that, because he hadn’t made it yet.  He married a white girl who sought capitalistic opportunities from any black man with fame, talent or money. He became the fools that he rapped about, and she built a career based on her exploitation of these fools. Has his better financial position in life manipulated his way of thinking? We don’t think too much about that, but Kanye is not alone. There are millions of affluent black people around the world who suddenly don’t see racism because of their money. They see themselves as capitalists, but they also forgot about their many family members who have not climbed the capitalistic ladder. Bill Cosby sure as hell didn’t see racism, and neither did OJ. Bill Cosby even scolded his own people, because of his own capitalistic achievements. Capitalism has a way of controlling our minds to the point where we can become blinded by the reality that’s before us. Back in the day, white people didn’t think black folks were capable of doing many things, because they thought they were superior in so many ways. After thousands of inventions by black people that white people rely on to this day for their own daily survival, some of them are still trying to hold on to some of the stereotypes created by their forefathers to exploit black people because of greed. Capitalism changes everyone, but the origin of it is always greed and control by a particular sector of society. Racism only justifies it all for them.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, and England have been extorting their former African colonies to the tune of over a trillion dollars a year since these countries asked for their independence from them. Yet, these Europeans are quick to get on their bullhorn to announce how poor so many nations in Africa are, while these countries are forced into bankruptcy to pay a lifetime debt that the white imperialists have banded together to force upon them. If any of these countries fail to pay France, England, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Germany, the imperialists will come together as one unit to destroy them. These despots are in Africa sucking the financial life out of the continent. Also, Haitians can’t seem to get away from the tag “The poorest nation in the western hemisphere,” but the white scoundrels are in Haiti trying to steal the newly discovered oil and gold reserves found in Haiti that can help the country back on its feet without any assistance from America and the other imperialist exploiters. Now, I would refer to this as racism masked by greed, or greed masked by racism, but either way, the privilege that white people have established for themselves through capitalism, make them feel they have the right to the resources of any country around the world. The wars in the Middle east have everything to do with oil, and nothing to do with democracy or human rights violations. White people also feel they have the right to murder any leader around the world at will. You know why? Because capitalism, greed and racism afford them that privilege. When was the last time a US or European president face charges in an international court for the ordered assassination of another leader? Capitalism also yield the kind of power where world leaders get to decide which country can develop nuclear power. It’s another form of racism and control established by capitalism.                                                                                                                           We can’t blame the white extortionists alone, because the corrupt leaders in Africa, South America, the Middle East, Asia, and the Caribbean play a major role in assisting these imperialists with their greed and racism. Survival of the fittest is also borne out of capitalism. Many third world leaders around the world are forced into corruption, because their power is controlled by the first world leaders. These leaders are used as overseers to enforce the best interest of the super powers. Any president of a third world country who believes his power is absolute, is also a delusional leader. Capitalism is the other cancer of the world, only second to religion.

A dictatorship is good as long as it is approved by the US and the other imperialists.

A dictatorship is good, as long as it is approved by the west.
 
First of all, let me just put this disclaimer out there: I have no problem with a dictatorship, as long as the president looks out for the best interest of his people and the development of his country.
 
Having said that, I know I’m running the risk of being barred from ever entering Rwanda again. I need to mention that I love the work that Paul Kagame is doing in Rwanda as a president, on the surface at least. The country is clean, and the economy seems to be thriving in a way that I have not noticed in other African countries that I’ve visited. As a dictator, maybe Kagame should hold training sessions for the other dictators across Africa to teach them a thing or two about patriotism, and the love for the African people. I understand that Kagame came from a rebellion background, where he fought for his position as president after defeating the Hutu rebels in Rwanda.That seems to be the case across Africa. Most of the presidents in African countries emerged from rebellious fighting against other groups or tribes. Too often these rebellions are financed by the west on both sides. There’s nothing white people enjoy more than a civil war that they created in Africa. They like to handout guns and money to both sides, because African genocides only benefit the west. The current president of Uganda is also a former rebel leader who came into power 32 years ago, without having accomplished shit for the country since he took over. Poverty is rampant and the infrastructure is nonexistent. My visitor’s pass across Africa may very well get revoked everywhere, but I’m not going to allow anybody to silence my voice, especially when they are corrupted leaders. Though I didn’t spend a month or two in Uganda and Rwanda, I was able to spend enough time in both countries to compare and contrast the two governments and their societies.
 
In Rwanda, Kagame runs a tight ship. On my very first night out, I was questioned by two detectives who work for his regime, and they wanted to know everything about my background, but most of all, they wanted to make sure I was not Nigerian. For some reason, Nigerians seems to be hated everywhere I have visited in Africa. Anyway, the detectives were polite, and they weren’t as inconspicuous as they thought they were. My driver knew right away they were cops, and he alerted me. After engaging them in a conversation for a few minutes, I also figured out they were undercover police officers working for a regime that keeps a tight lid on any movement across the nation. Everyone in Rwanda is a spy, so a person must be careful how they speak about the president and how they act around other people. A lot of people have lost their voices under the leadership of Paul Kagame. Much like any other dictatorship anywhere, African leaders want to take away the rights and voices of their people. They don’t seem to value feedback and opinions of their constituents. In Rwanda, everyone lives in fear, and nobody dares say anything about the government. My big mouth could’ve gotten me killed, but that story is for another day. I did explore the city of Kigali, and I found it to be a beautiful and clean city, being developed nicely and offering amenities that I have not found in other parts of Africa. Kagame has also made a commitment to finance 80% of the country’s projects with the country’s own money, which is commendable, given the fact that China is throwing money around all over Africa, in order to re-establish a new form of colonization through debt. China’s promise to build infrastructure around Africa is shoddy at best. Bridges less than 5 years old are already crumbling, and highways are falling apart across Africa. It’s a sham and a scam on the part of the Chinese. In addition, the Chinese are moving to Africa with unskilled laborers and criminals who act racist toward the African natives. Africa needs to kick them the fuck out quick! Zambia is already feeling the wrath of China’s fake philanthropy in Africa. They’ve taken over many industries due to defaulted loans.These black leaders are gonna learn that nothing in life is free.The promises made by China to these African presidents only benefit the personal pockets of these leaders and their family, not their country and people. The Chinese understand this, and they know it’s a matter of time before they own what’s left of Africa. China is positioning itself to be the global leader in commerce and defense around the world, so Africa will be a pawn in their chess game. Few leaders in Africa are smart enough to negotiate deals with China that will benefit their country in a way that will uplift their people from the abyss. The Chinese understand the history of corruption, dictatorship and poor leadership across Africa. They are taking full advantage of that! I give Kagame credit to a certain degree, but he’s still a dictator who’s trying to rule with an iron fist. A little feedback from the people might serve him well, because he seems to be well intended.
 
While the US and their allies are quick to assassinate many dictators around the world under the false pretense of installing democracy, they also allowed the Duvalier regime in Haiti to thrive under two different leaders for decades, because those dictators received their blessings and looked out for US interests. Meanwhile, they tried to assassinate Castro over 90 times without much success, because Castro undermined the imperialist ideals.  I’m sure they played a role in Hugo Chavez’s death in Venezuela, just as the US government played a role in the death of Johnny Cochran, after he announced he was planning to put a team of lawyers together to sue the government for reparation on behalf of the descendants of former slaves. The case would’ve been catastrophic to the US economy, and they knew that Cochran would’ve won. The answer is always cancer. These people know how to get that poison in anybody’s system. The sinister ways of white people have infested the world, and no leader is safe unless they get the approval of the white imperialists. President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe was made a “sir” in England, until he decided to stand up against white tyranny and imperialism. They undermined him with embargoes and crumbled his economy. The Chinese are now taking advantage of Zimbabwe. I’m hoping that president Paul Kagame is smart enough to understand the chess game he’s gotten himself involved in. These damn imperialists are only good for one thing, and one thing only, the exploitation of other people. Kagame is no more powerful than the former leader of Libya, Qaddafi. He seems to have taken a page from Qaddafi, based on what I’ve seen in Rwanda, as far as his leadership and the progress of his country. However, I don’t see how he can maintain power, unless he’s willing to allow the west to exploit his people to a certain degree. I understand that dictatorship has been a staple in Africa for decades now, but few African leaders understand that their limited power is determined by the west. They are only as strong as white people allow them to be. It’s a false sense of empowerment and security assured by America and its European allies for their own self-interest. These people also know how to crumble economies, suffocate a people, and bring their wrath onto a nation with impunity. These civil wars across Africa are well-orchestrated by the west. The fall of every regime is determined by them, and they are there to make sure only African blood is shed with every regime change that takes place. While I enjoyed the beauty of Rwanda and everything the country has to offer to a visiting American citizen tourist like myself, I must not be blinded to the fact that some Rwandans feel powerless and voiceless under the dictatorship of president Kagame. I was told many things by people on the hush hush. I gloated a little too much on behalf of Kagame. The picture is not always what it seems. Kagame is a great magician for now, creating an illusion that all other African leaders should follow. His country is clean and thriving…for now.
 
African leaders need to learn how to become moderate dictators, in order for their country to thrive in a way that will empower them as leaders, and allow their young generation a better future. When a government feels the need to take away the voices of people, those people will never maximize their potential, because they understand that any achievement can be wiped away without a moment’s notice for saying the wrong thing, and livelihoods can be destroyed. These leaders consciously act as the enforcers for white imperialism and supremacy against their own people. They don’t value the lives of their African citizens, and the absolute power they believe they have, is controlled by the superpowers who stand by to remove them at will, the minute they go against their interest. While I applaud president Kagame for the great work he has done with the city of Kigali and the development of his country, I also have a problem with him as a dictator who came into power through a rebellion, but now he’s acting like the very people he rebelled against.
 

The Crippling of the black race!

While I was suspended from Facebook, I went to Uganda and Rwanda for a couple of weeks to celebrate my birthday. I didn’t get a chance to visit Kenya as planned, but my visit left me with plenty to talk and write about.
 
I wrote a blog about my trip. Please enjoy it…
 
Since I just returned from a 2-week vacation from Africa, it’s important for me to write a blog on the state of black people. I have had plenty of time to reflect on the state of black people worldwide, while I was on a plane for over 24 hours on my way to Uganda. As much as black people would like to become completely independent of white people, it is entirely impossible to achieve such a feat without learning to love ourselves first. Never mind the fact that white people refuse to allow black people to develop any kind of self-sufficiency and self-dependency worldwide, but they go out of their way to prevent black progress on a grander scale. Period. I haven’t visited the entire continent of Africa just yet, but I’m a quarter of the way there. The systemic control of Africa by the west is evident in all the African countries that I have been to so far. I can blindfold a Ugandan and drop him off in Ghana, and he wouldn’t know the difference. I can do the same to a Ghanaian or a Nigerian. The infrastructure, or lack thereof, in all of these countries have forced me to believe that the problem is bigger than African leaders.The sinister ways of white people since colonization, have forced black people to be at their mercy on every level, even though black people in Africa and the Caribbean live on better resourceful grounds.
It’s not difficult to find civil wars taking place across Africa. From the Sudan, to the Republic of Congo, Uganda, Somalia, Ethiopia and many others, white people have played a role in the depopulation of Africa, a plan that has been systemically established by them long ago. Black folks have to stop thinking that we have everything to do with our own demise. That is far from the truth. What we lack is the ingenuity to understand white manipulation. African leaders in Africa are manipulated everyday, just as black politicians and leaders in America are functioning on a string being pulled by their white adversaries. We see crime taking place in the hood, we’re quick to blame ourselves for all its undertaking. We don’t look at the games that white people are playing with our lives, by forcing us to eliminate one another for their greater gain and benefit. I was in Rwanda for a few days, and while there, I visited the Genocide Memorial. While in this place, I grew angry and couldn’t understand how these black people gave the Belgians access into their country, and allowed them to manipulate them to the point where over a million people were murdered through white manipulation. The Hutus and Tutsis had been living in harmony for years, until the Germans showed up and started to create divisiveness among them. It was something as small as the Germans telling the Tutsis they were more intelligent than the Hutus. The Belgians would show up a few years later to help orchestrate a full blown civil war that saw the deaths of over a million people. Organized genocide at the hands of white people. Just imagine being manipulated to the point where you believe that your best friend, neighbors and even family members deserve death, because you are not from the same tribe? Never mind the fact that humanity has connected us as a people, but white people are so sinister, they design plans that force black people across Africa to kill one another ever so often, in order to maintain population control. The genocide in Uganda only ended in 1986. Rwanda is still recovering from their genocide.Those orphaned children are now adults trying to find their own way in life. It’s almost inhumane how we have always allowed our struggles and sufferings to connect us. Furthermore, we need to look at the fact that Christianity was not introduced in most of these countries in Africa by the Europeans until the early 1800’s. White people rely heavily on religion to control the entire African continent. Prior to their bible thumping across the African continent, Africans lived pretty peacefully.
I’m gonna go out of my way to expose the truth that white people are behaviorists, conquerors, manipulators and exploiters. They like to study human and animal behaviors, in order to stay one step ahead of everyone. In addition, they share the intel of their research with one another for manipulation purposes, which is why so many European countries took part in the slave trade and the colonization of Africa. When examined closely, white people have adopted the many ways of the lion in a jungle as a functioning group. Like white people, lions are cowards for the most part, but they understand their strength in numbers. Lions don’t usually hunt alone, because they understand they are weak as one. However, it’s very difficult for any animal to escape a pride of lion, even an elephant. In Africa, a man can ward off a lone lion attack with a simple stick. The lion fears violent retribution. It’s no different than white people. I have never in my life encountered a white boy who was tough by himself. However, when a group of 10 white boys or more are together against a lesser group of people, they have all the balls in the world. Lions are no different, they like to prey on the weakest animal in the jungle by separating them from their group. White people have singled out black people as their prey, because they understand that black unity is hard to achieve. If all 54 countries in Africa united, and pooled their resources to build stronger economies, currencies and armed forces, no other group on the planet would stand a chance against them. Unity is our weakness, and it is a weakness created long ago when white people landed in Africa. Since then, they have focused more on innovative ways to maintain that stronghold on Africa. Now, as far as their stronghold on us in America, it is done through legislation, incarceration. drug wars, guns access, crime, and a division between the educated blacks and the disadvantaged blacks. We must be aware of their manipulation tactics in order to escape their grip of control.
 
I understand that “Black Lives Matter” as a movement is supposed to be putting a microscope on the plight of black people against injustice, but do the research to find out who’s financing this movement. They have to counter everything we do, in order to create balance. Has Black Lives Matter reduced the number of police killings in the black community? That’s a simple no. However, the counter argument will always be that we kill more black people in the hood ourselves. Of course, that is the case, but we’re not scrutinizing the root of the violence perpetuated against our people by our people. Just as the Africans aren’t paying attention to the reason why they feel they need to engage in a civil war against their fellow Africans over dumb reasons. It’s all orchestrated by white people, and it is their way of depopulating the African race worldwide. We are quick to believe that white people can be our friends, without analyzing their fears over our friendship. Your white liberal brethren is not going to allow you to force him into a corner where his white privilege is stripped from him. No matter how progressive a white person can seem to be, it is innate in white people to want control and dominance over others. White people instilled an inferiority complex in black folks many generations ago that have been passed down. It is up to us to decipher their ways and the means that we need to use to overcome what they have done over the last few centuries. There’s really no counter attack against white oppression other than black unity. However, we have too many agents that are willing to sellout their own people for their own personal gain. The situation across Africa is sad, because the white people from the West have banded together like a pride of lions, to put the financial restraints over African countries over their own resources. The Chinese have also decided to bring their own chair to the table to feast on the steak that is the African continent. They’re already taking over and controlling industries in a few countries in Africa over defaulted loans. We shouldn’t be so quick to judge the Chinese, though, because they’re only following the blueprint that white people created long ago. Most of the leaders in Africa aren’t patriotic and they don’t love black people.Those sentiments are also found in America and the Caribbean as well. As black people, we should make every effort to find a way to love one another on a level that will be impenetrable by white hatred. I would rather see a movement of “black love and black pride,” instead of a fictitious “black lives matter movement” financed by racist white people. A black pride and black love movement needs no financing. It is the duty of each black individual to change their attitude toward their fellow black men and women. The strength of black unity, pride and love will weaken white power and white supremacy.
 
Just in case some people don’t know what I mean, let me break it down for you:
 
When you start to develop black pride and black love, your black sense automatically comes into play, and you will suddenly see black people in a different light. Your attitude toward your fellow black people will change, and you will understand that black progress from any individual from our community will benefit all black people. You will become more conscious of where and how you spend your money. The greater good for the black community will make sense to you. You will make black-owned businesses your first choice for spending, and you will try to tackle problems affecting us as a group. No one will have any influence over the decisions you make in life, because your decisions will yield results that will benefit your community at large. No longer will we allow puppet politicians and preachers who believe Trump is the best thing for the black community, to represent us. We will collectively root out the sellouts who want to fake their way to leadership positions for personal gain. When you develop black pride, you and your children will walk with your head up high. You will not allow the destruction of your own community by anybody. You will honor your women and children, and protect them with your life. Black pride and black love is the only thing that can change the black community. We have been forced into a position of distrust and hate for so long, everything we do is counterproductive for black people as a group. There has to be a light bulb somewhere trying to shine through that tunnel of darkness that our minds have become, but we must find a way to turn the switch on first.
 
The change that we need is gonna have to come from within, and we’re gonna have to be honest with our own assessment and evaluation of our community and people. I understand that many of our people are so far gone, that it seems they’re at the point of no return, but we must not think that way, because even a homeless person can find his way home. Let’s work on strengthening ourselves, so that our offspring don’t become a pawn in their mess of control and exploitation! This cyclical suffering must stop!

An open letter to my daughters.

My dear beautiful princesses,

It is with a heart filled with love that I write this letter to you today. I can only address certain issues for now, because I really have no idea what the future holds for either of you. All I know is, everything about my life has changed since the two of you came into my life. I don’t just want to be a dad, protector and provider, but I also want to be your guide, and set the best examples for you to follow, so you can avoid the traps of generational curses, and cyclical dysfunctions for the women in my family, and other black female victims in society. I’m nowhere near perfect as a human being or father, but I promise to always be the best father that I can be to both of you. There’s no blueprint in place for me to follow, so I must establish my own blueprint, and I know that I will falter along the way. The best that I can do is learn from my mistakes, and hope for your forgiveness for my lack of knowledge and experience in certain areas. I promise to do for you everything that I wish my own father should’ve done for me. My job as a father is to ensure a proper upbringing, a decent and well-balanced life, and a just education for the two of you.

I understand it’s a tough world out there and neither of you are old enough to even understand what I’m saying right now, but please understand that I worry about you. I wake up worrying about you everyday. If there was a place I could go to obtain superpowers, I would make that sacrifice for a better future for both of you. I hope to live vicariously through both of you one day. What I mean by that is, I want to watch you pursue your dreams without worrying about your personal livelihood on a daily basis. There were so many things that I wanted to be and wanted to do growing up, but I was limited. Life happened early for me. I didn’t have the luxury of becoming all I could be. I want to remove those limitations for you, and offer you a world with endless opportunities. I want you to understand that you are both  beautiful, intelligent and talented young girls who will develop to beautiful, intelligent and talented women one day. I want to be there every step of the way, and I can’t wait to display my pride when you’re able to tell the world the significant role I have played in your lives as a father and dad. I don’t hide the fact that my most important accomplishment in life has been my role as a father in your lives. I have had my happiest moments with the two of you, and it’s always joyous to be around you two. Still, I worry. The reason why I worry is because cowardice racist white men are attacking black women, and there doesn’t seem to be too many black men around to protect and defend them. I worry a man might think it’s okay to put his hands on you, even though I’ve made it my mission to never use corporal punishment to discipline you. That whipping and hitting crap is for slaves. I worry I didn’t have a son, so you could have a brother to stand up for you when punk ass men think you can be their doormat. I worry about spending the rest of my life in prison defending your honor against just about any man who wants to be disrespectful, abusive or hurtful to you. I worry that most men nowadays believe that most black women are gold diggers, waiting to be taken care of by them. I worry that a lot of women no longer see the value in being classy and feminine, because they are being sold on feminism. I worry that a two-piece bra and panties has become the uniform for all black female performers, no matter how successful they are. I worry that most young black female artists don’t understand their value, and are trying to be role models to little girls. The blind can’t lead the blind. I worry that society will continue to take advantage of your gender, even though you may be more capable than any man that they value more. I worry about men like Trump and Harvey Weinstein taking advantage of you, which would be a straight ticket to prison for me. I worry that you may be looking for love in all the wrong places some day. I worry that you may be influenced by the wrong people, despite my hard work to help guide you. I worry that you may think experimenting with drugs is cool. I worry that you may try to find your worth in a man. I worry you may feel there’s a ceiling to your achievements. And I worry that you may not understand my job is to teach you love, and the hard lessons that will prepare you for life, and sometimes you will get upset at me for trying to enforce those values.

I understand my job is to set the standards for the man that you will seek to marry later in life, but my standards are not always going to be the best. I have my faults, and you must recognize those faults, and not be attracted to them. I want y’all to understand there’s nothing wrong with nice guys. They are good for you. A lot of them will treat you the way you want to be treated. The way I want you to be elevated from princesses to queens one day. Bad boys are often insecure men who are looking for attention, because no one was there to give them the attention they needed as children. I know about this firsthand. I’ve been there. While I’m trying my best to set the best example as a provider, I also want y’all to know that you must be your own provider as well. You should never rely on anybody to provide for you. The most important part of any relationship is shared responsibilities. You must understand that you have to fulfill your role and hold up your part of any relationship. No one should be burden to carry a relationship alone. It doesn’t work that way. Last but not least, you must always be honest with your family, friends and partner, no matter how much it might hurt them. Being honest actually brings peace of mind to you. No one can ever call you a liar. In the face of adversity, you must embrace your true self and understand that no one is responsible for your action in life but you.

With all that said, I want both of you to know that I love you with all my heart and I will always fight for you with my last breath. Being a father has not been a job to me, it’s been a wonderful journey full of adventures.

Love,

Daddy.

Forced humiliation!

There is something sinister taking place in America and around the world, and it has white supremacy, racism and imperialism written all over it. Black folks have not been paying too much attention, but there’s a narrative being portrayed out there that black people should be lucky if they walk away unscathed from an interaction or altercation of any kind with a police officer. First of all, no one in society should feel their life is in danger, just because they have an encounter with a police officer. Whether it’s behind the wheel, for a traffic infraction, or somebody’s sitting on their own porch, because some stupid racist asshole decides to use 911 as their racist enforcement against black people, black folks should not be victimized. Black folks are accepting this narrative, and too many of them are calling themselves lucky, just because they haven’t been shot by a cop after getting pulled over, or being addressed by a cop. You don’t have to do what I do, because my job is to raise your awareness to white supremacy, racism, and the well-oiled machine of white imperialism. We are being forced to cower, and give up our human dignity at the hands of cops. These cops are the enforcers of white supremacy at the lowest level. The district attorneys, judges and white juries are on the next level.

I just recently watched a video of a young black male getting pulled over by a white cop at gun point. When the young man asked, “Why do you have your gun pointed at me?” The white officer replied, “Because you’re not white.” This is blatant racism, and it’s part of a campaign to instill fear in black people, and force them into a position of humiliation, and to make them feel powerless. White supremacy has infiltrated every aspect of society. A politician in Georgia recently admitted that he has no problem with Trump using the N word. We have openly racist politicians running for office, and some of them are going to win. There’s a mostly black town in Georgia being denied the right to vote in the upcoming general state elections. We also had a white nincompoop who was getting arrested at the airport in Florida who felt the need to blurt out “You’re treating me like a black person,” while he used his white privilege to get combative with the cops. This dude is a doctor. White people are fully aware of the inhumane treatment black people receive at the hands of cops. They choose to stay silent. Silence is the supporter of injustice.  There’s another recent incident where a black man holding his baby was tased for no reason. How do you tase someone who’s a holding a newborn baby? Okay, this shit is getting inhumane to the point where these racist bastards don’t even give a fuck anymore. The time has come for black people to let go of their passive attitudes toward white people, their docility at the hands of cops, and their subservient position in America. At some point in life, everyone must establish some type of dignity. We cannot afford to raise another generation of cowards who will continue to allow white people to dictate the confines of our humanity. Too many of you are absent-minded of white history. When Napoleon and the rest of these cock-sucking racists set out to conquer Africa, they did it by the shipload. They were always outnumbered, but they managed to control an entire continent through force, violence, and intimidation. The same thing is happening today. Black folks are being forced into a subservient position, where they are forced to accept whatever type of livelihood imposed on them by white people.

There’s no fucking reason in the world that a black man or a black woman should feel lucky to walk away from a white officer for having done nothing wrong. Black parents are being forced to train their kids on ways to interact with officers. What the fuck are you raising, dogs? White boys are apprehended fully armed after murdering dozens of people, without a scratch on their bodies, but black people are being murdered without any weapons on them, or having killed anybody?  Furthermore, we should stop using Trump as the reason these racists are now starting to make their presence felt. Trump has been president for less than 2 years. His base of racists was established long before he announced his candidacy. This police chief in Florida was telling his officers to randomly arrest black men for no reason to keep crime down in his district, way before Trump became president. This asshole should be under a jail cell. Now, just pay a little closer attention to the way white supremacy is being invoked right before your eyes. What are the consequences to these people’s injustice against black people? This police chief is not even charged for the crime that he forced his officers to commit against an entire community. His officers are absolved from punishment, because they were following his directives. There’s a domino effect here with no culpability. It’s as if we’re watching Trump violate every single law and rule of the presidency, but no one has yet brought any charges against him, or even tried to impeach him. If you’re not noticing what’s taking place, you’re not just in a coma, you’re mentally dead. Never mind the fact that white cops get to go on a vacation and receive severance packages after murdering innocent black people, but prosecutors who knowingly send innocent black people to prison for long sentences, are dealt no repercussion for their heinous crimes against humanity. To take this on a grander scale, George W. Bush should be serving at least 50 consecutive life sentences for international crimes against humanity, but white supremacy seems to be above the law. Most US presidents should be buried under a jail cell, but when you’re white, you don’t have to follow any laws. White people can send their armies marching into sovereign republics to arrest and murder leaders at their own will, but nobody can touch these white people, though. The very thing that black people are trying to avoid, is the very thing that’s going to land them in bondage once again. We cannot live peacefully among a group of violent people that are against peace. There’s nothing more peaceful than watching innocent animals in their natural habitat, but white people have a problem with that. They must feed their need for violence and thirst for blood, by killing these innocent animals, and collect them as trophies. Yeah, you’re a real hero for killing a nonthreatening giraffe.

Immigrants tend to be the most blind people of them all. They honestly believe America and these other European countries present them with the most opportunities, without once realizing that these imperialist countries are the reason why there’s no opportunity in their own country. It’s like me coming over to your house to take your TV, microwave, computer, phone, refrigerator, food and everything else that you need, but at the same time, I want to now invite you to my house to enjoy all the shit that I took from you with my own established rules and guidelines. Immigrants are so fucking shortsighted, they don’t pay any attention to the reasons why they’ve had to flee their homeland to begin with. You can blame it on your government at home all you want, but destabilization and instability in any country around the world is always financed by the imperialists, on both sides. The US, France and England will deliver guns to both sides of a civil war in any country around the world. Why get involved when they can help you kill each other from afar? The same shit happens in America. Black people are killing each other daily, and the government is more than happy to provide the ammunition. You must also understand that ammunition doesn’t always come in the form of guns and other manufactured weapons. Drugs are part of the ammunition. Columbia is a long way from the ghettos of America, but cocaine and other drugs are easily accessible in every ghetto in America. That ammunition usually leads to devastation. Reagan is a primary example of the devastation crack caused in the black community. Too many of you are too fucking scared to fight their tactics, and force them into a position of fear with the intent of unadvertised revenge. We have suffered enough at the hands of white people. It is time to stop their control, and all the bullshit they have been doing around the world to subjugate us as a people.

Unfortunately, few black people are able to travel around the world to compare and contrast the conditions of black folks worldwide. Most of the black people in Africa and the Caribbean can hardly afford to survive, much less earn enough money to get a visa to travel anywhere, so they are forced to live in their cocoon of pain without knowing the suffering that their brethren experience worldwide daily. They are sold on a land of milk and honey abroad. They strive to make it abroad at all cost. Some of them have spent their life savings to come to a land where they are despised and treated as second class citizens. The reality, though, they still believe it’s better than their homeland; at least those who are able to escape their home hell to land in the belly of the beast.  Meanwhile, the black folks in America are too impacted socially and economically to see beyond the ghettos where they are forced live. The ghettos are prisons without bars. The CO’s (Correction Officers AKA cops) come as they please to regulate the ghetto, and when someone in the ghetto go against the rules and regulations of white supremacy, they are are unjustifiably murdered at the hands of these overseers who are protected by the justice system, primarily made up of district attorneys, white juries and judges. Only a district attorney can prosecute a murderer. Half the district attorneys in America have a white robe hanging in their closets, as less than 10% of district attorneys nationwide are black. You really think we stand a chance? We have to start thinking beyond the realm of our controlled world, in order to see the new campaign that white supremacy has unleashed against the black community. These are not isolated incidents. Too many of us are blinded by fake opportunities, which create the delusion that we live in an inclusive society. Your job, education, car, house and ability to live under the rules set forth by white people do not make America a just society. In an inclusive society, we wouldn’t have to be screaming “Black Lives Matter!” Let’s not get fooled by the labels set by these political oligarchs either. You can believe the democrats are liberal all you want, but I don’t see them gunning to impeach Trump like they should. I don’t see these democrats introducing legislation to prosecute cops, district attorneys who knowingly charge innocent people with crimes, judges who violate people’s civil rights, and the racists who want to murder the entire world because they’re angry with themselves. Nah, some of these people are so called liberals and democrats as well. Maxine Waters doesn’t seem to have too many democratic allies, whenever she stands up against these republican assholes. If you want to believe in liberals, you have not been paying too much attention to the abuse of black people. Liberal white people must forgo some of their white privilege, in order for black people to see any equality. Now ask yourself, would you forgo your own privileges for the betterment of another group that is responsible for the very privileges that you enjoy? It’s just commonsense, folks. I’m not a genius. I’m just a better analyst of white people than a lot of people. I also have more time in my hands than most people, because I realized long ago, while black people are forced to report to the plantation every morning for their survival to enrich white people for many generations to come, white people are innovating subjugation and exploitation tactics in ways that are beyond the scope of the average thinking man. They always stay 10 steps ahead of us. I’m always right on their heel, looking at the finish line, to hopefully one day meet them at their own demise. Too many black people don’t even know that they are slaves right now, and will forever remain slaves through their lifetime. That is a pity!

Loving the idea of love…

Normally, I wouldn’t even look at my computer on a Sunday. I refuse to work on Sundays, not because of any religious belief or anything like that, but because I like to lounge around and just rest, or chill at my own will. However, I woke up inspired with a thought this morning because of an article I just read on Rihanna.  Really.

I’m no expert at love, but I can be pretty skillful romanticizing love whenever I decide to take the time to sit down and write a book. It’s mostly fantasy, though, which is the reason why it works so well for my readers. The idea of love is a fantasy for both, men and women. Love is something that most people have the ability to romanticize in their own way, but not everyone can articulate it in a way that can bring clarity to their relationship. As many books as I have written that depicted so many different romantic relationships, I find it difficult to even define what love is to me personally. Unfortunately, too many people show up as their representative in search of love in the beginning of a relationship. Once a person is smitten by a representative, it’s difficult for that person to go back to the truth of who they really are. Showing up as who they are in a relationship from the very beginning, seems to be the most difficult thing for people to do. Gauging potential from a person can be difficult, because it takes time to peel the layers to uncover the truth about a person. We’re not so much in love with the idea of love, but we tend to fall in love with the action of love. A lot of us are walking around empty and in need of fulfillment. Some of us don’t even know what it is, but there are people out there who can examine your needs right away, and they can become skillful chameleons to fulfill your needs. Any need can be romanticized in a relationship, so we tend to fall in love with the idea of a romanticized need fulfilled.

Some people are out there looking for a mother or father figure. When your love shows up in the shape of a caring woman who can nurture you in ways that you never experienced, it can automatically trigger your mind to believe that this person is what you’ve wanted and needed all your life. In fact, you can take their caring ways and start to romanticize it in your head, without even opening your eyes to the flaws of the person. If that one need is fulfilled in the relationship, we tend to internalize it as love. It’s no different than a caring man showing up in the life of a woman who suffered from “absent father syndrome.” If that man treats her well, and is always a gentleman in the areas that she’s lacking, she can in turn take that experience and romanticize it to be something that fills a void she has experienced all her life. Most often love takes shape in the wrong way, otherwise the divorce rate wouldn’t be so high, and there wouldn’t be so many single women. There are plenty of men and women out there who want their financial needs met. So, when a person shows up to take care of their financial needs, the gesture is automatically equated to love, even when love doesn’t exist. When people want to fall in love, they tend to “remix” every gesture in their head to find romanticized gestures to fulfill the love that they seek. I’m sure you have heard plenty of women brag about how romantic her guy might be, just because he takes her shopping, away on trips, or just gives her money for no reason. Not too many men are in a position to do these things, so women who meet these rare finds tend to think these are romantic gestures related to love. For some guys, that’s all they know how to do to impress women. They may lack in every other area. That giving gesture is often romanticized in a way that is fulfilling to so many women, even men they aren’t attracted to, can potentially become their partner in love. We tend to label these people “gold diggers,” but the real issue is what they lacked all their lives. When a a girl grows up without a male provider all her life, as her mom struggles to provide the basic necessities for her, she’s growing up with a void that was never filled. No daddy ever walked through the door with bags of toys and clothing for her. It’s an experience she’s lacking, and she will somehow seek to fill that void, and any man that comes along who can make her feel like a princess, instead of a queen, will do. I’m not making a blanket statement here, but a lot of women tend to want to fill that void of an absent father in their personal relationship. There are grown ass women out there looking for a daddy. There are grown ass men out there looking for a mommy as well. I might be one of them. LOL. Contrary to popular belief, not all mothers are loving, and not all women want to raise their children and be mothers.

Love is so subjective, there are people out there who wake up every day in physical pain and abuse, but they somehow translate their pain as love. There’s a huge difference between a translation and a definition. When you translate someone’s ill will toward you as love, you are suffering from a chronic mental illness that keeps you from reality. It’s no different than lying and cheating. People who lie and cheat translate their action in a way that covers the scars and the pain they cause to themselves and others as love. Unfortunately, I have had my share of pathological liars and cheaters. My translation, however at the time, was that I was the better man. She wanted me because I was better than what she already had. A little delusional on my part, you think? I never once thought, “the same way you get them is the same way that you lose them.” I suffered from this chronic mental illness for a while. I haven’t met too many completely detached women in my life. What I mean by that is, I have met plenty of monkeys in the jungle. In the jungle, a monkey won’t let go of a branch, until that monkey gets her hand on another branch. I was always that other branch, until somebody else became the other branch to my relationship. I had to pull myself out of the jungle. Single women are hard to meet. though. A lot of women are only single in their heads, and until they meet the next man that they believe is better than the current man they’re dating. Women are much better at this than men. They are more calculated. I know so many women who live with men that they can’t stand, or are just not in love with anymore, but they won’t leave until they find security in another relationship. Most men aren’t built that way. We’ll leave a relationship even if it’s gonna hurt us financially.  I don’t want to deal with any woman who’s not completely single anymore. That player mentality bullshit is for the birds, because Karma don’t play that shit. There are so many people out there who are afraid of being by themselves, not necessarily alone, but it is sickening how they are defining love. They hold on to pain, heartache, resentment, infidelity, mistrust and so much more, until they can find deliverance in a new person. No such love can exist if someone didn’t let go long enough of their pain to heal. The mirror is a mother, but it’s the best reflection of reality. Too many people are afraid to look at the man/woman in the mirror. The most simple answers and solutions can be found in the mirror. When we translate our pain to serve our needs, we tend to correlate it with love. When we define our position in a relationship to fill a void, we embrace it as love. Some women are so blinded to love, they’d romanticize a simple gesture like “a guy sending them flowers,” to berate a husband who pays the mortgage, utilities and all the other important needs in their lives.  Do you know how many woman are out there cheating because they don’t think their husband or partner is romantic enough? If what you feel you’re lacking is romance in your life, any Joe will do. A dozen roses and dinner at a fancy restaurant for one night cannot replace the hard work and dedication that your husband may have to his family. Flowers and a meal simply do not equal to a roof over your head, a warm house, running water, electricity and stability. Having sex in the car or getting spontaneous head from some random horny chick looking for excitement is not equaled to the stability that your wife brings to your home. People are so shortsighted sometimes, they screw up love.

I honestly believe that true love can only happen once in a lifetime, but acceptable love can take place over and over again. Men and women tend to change their standards as they get older, because most often, they are looking for acceptable love after their desired fantasy of love wane. They might’ve messed up real love at some point in their lives, but now acceptable love will do. Their desired partner used to have to meet a certain height, weight, educational level, beauty standard and so on, but as father time takes over, those standards are thrown out the window, because acceptable love is just fulfilling enough. The slightly overweight person is sweet all of a sudden. The woman with a smaller butt is kind. The shorter man is generous. The guy with the oval head is cute now. And the changes to that list go on forever. No one has ever beaten father time, not even in love. We all grow with time, and our standards and taste tend to change over time. Still, we always manage to attach love to the changes that take place in our lives, and we romanticize everything to fulfill our need for love.

We need to be more disciplined financially.

Black people/the poor are taken advantage of by the system so much, sometimes I get tired of it. From overdraft fees, to late payment fees, to excess premiums on life, car, and property insurance, it takes a toll to be black and poor in this country. The system is built on the back of the less fortunate.
I try my best to educate as much as possible, to make sure you all are financially literate, but the system is always one step ahead. A lot of you who have no choice but to use your credit cards, are probably paying an exuberant amount in interest that you have no idea can keep you in debt for the rest of your life. Those credit card debt can also prevent you from ever becoming a homeowner. Please make sure you call your bank to have them remove additional interests from your credit cards after you have paid them off. This is a common practice where the banks charge extra ineterest that they should not legally charge to your card. However, if you don’t call them to have it removed, you’re just fattening the pockets of the bankers.
Not too long ago I wrote a post to teach you all how to avoid paying interest on your credit cards, while maintaining your good credit. I hope my advice is being put to good use. These banks make billions of dollars every year off interest, because they understand that most poor people lack the necessary financial discipline to function in a society that makes sure a carrot is dangling in front of them every year. In addition, poor people don’t have the expandable income to afford some of the basic luxuries they would like to have. Credit cards are used as an alternative form of payment, when extra money can’t be gotten. They are also the cause behind so many people’s credit being ruined in the black community. You may think I’m exaggerating, but it actually benefits the banks and other businesses when you have poor credit. There’s always going to be new phone that is released every year, but you don’t really need it. However, because you are poor and your self-esteem is attached to shit you can’t afford, you make every effort to upgrade your phone for no goddamn reason. I don’t get a new phone unless mine is completely nonfunctional, so a phone lasts me at least 5 years. Apple is now worth 1 trillion dollars, thanks to all those poor people who continue to waste their money buying the latest gadgets from Apple. Is Apple giving scholarships to your kids to go to college? We are building up these companies, and they give us nothing back in return. We need to stop. Apple doesn’t even have a program to increase diversity that includes black people in their company.
Poor credit certainly equals to higher interest rates to the consumer, and more money to the lenders. These piranhas are more than happy to enforce their predatory lending laws in the black community. Rent-A-Center seems to be everyone’s favorite, where black people get to pay four times the price for any item they want over their lifetime. Big screen televisions are hot sellers, and by the time they get done paying it off, there’s a new model on the market. The cyclical needs and want for poor people is different than the needs of rich people. A lot of rich people don’t waste money on the latest electronic gadgets, but poor people certainly feel the need to. Layaway plans and other forms of available financing make the poor believe what they want is attainable. However, what the banks are doing is keeping you poor and indebted to them indefinitely. The best way for the system to keep you captive, is to make sure you are indebted to them. Once you are in debt, there’s no more freedom. You can’t quit your job. You can’t take days off at work. You can’t call out sick. Everyone controls you when you are in debt. We have to make sure we do a better job to educate our children, so they don’t repeat the mistakes of the parents.
Unfortunately, it may be a little too late for many black children, as some of their parents have already ruined their credit the minute a social security number was issued to them. Utility bills arrive with their names attached as newborns. Cable, telephone and other unnecessary bullshit that their parents can’t afford to get on their own, are passed on to them, setting the children in a financial hole from birth. Some black parents are unconscionable, and they don’t deserve to be parents. You are supposed to provide for your children and protect them until they become adults. Unfortunately, too many black parents see their children as a come-up. Whether they are using the child support laws, which sometimes allow them to deprive the child access to his father, or using the child’s social security number for their own benefit to access material bullshit, we are doing a disservice to our children. They should not be paying the price for our lack of discipline. The revolving doors of poverty is a cycle that we must consciously make the decision to end. White people don’t look out for you, they look out for their white system that subjugates you. When you are receiving public assistance, and you are forced to reveal the name of your child’s father, the system wants to make sure the father repays every dime they ever assisted you with first. They don’t care about your child like you think they do. Otherwise, these judges and district attorneys wouldn’t let these murderers walk every time a black child is murdered by them.
White folks don’t care that a minor had no say in his/her credit getting ruined by a parent. No child wants to send his/her parents to prison for credit fraud. It’s a catch 22, but the losers are always the children. We have to do better!

When will we rise?

We have a lot of cowards in the black community who believe they have what it takes to become a leader, without learning the history of black leadership worldwide. You can’t be a true leader if you don’t understand that death comes with true black leadership. That means, you shouldn’t repeat the mistakes of your predecessors. Don’t die in vain!
We can talk about the modern notables like Dr. King, Malcolm X, Steve Biko, Patrice Lumumba, and Kwame Nkrumah, and we all know that they were all murdered, and their murder was orchestrated by the CIA. When you look at the history of these leaders, they were all the head of the snake. Once decapitated, the bodies of the cowards they left behind retrieved back into their holes. We cannot continue on the same course. We have to train more than one Dr. King, more than one Malcolm X, more than one Patrice Lumumba and more than one Kwame Nkrumah. There must be hundreds of them willing to put their lives on the line when a leader is killed, and the hundreds must train their millions of followers to exact revenge on the assassins who murder their leaders. We have not fought back.
All these black leaders were killed, and not one CIA member was touched. How can that be? You can’t continue to allow your leaders to get killed, and you don’t exact revenge on their murderers. How is your movement going to continue if everyone goes back to their regular life after their leader is killed? Jail should never be an option. When you’re in a war, you’re supposed to fight to the death. Black Panther members shouldn’t remain in prison after 46 years. What good is a movement when all your members are in prison? I don’t respect prisoners. Nobody should be willing to become a prisoner of war. If you can’t live as a dignified man, you don’t fucking deserve to live at all. We’re not gonna go back to square one anymore. We must keep up pace and continue the fight to let these people know we’re gonna fight until their fucking great grandchildren live with the fear that we’re fucking coming for them. White people are all about control and fear. They want to control us and instill fear in our people. That has worked since the beginning of time, but when do we stand up and stop this shit? It takes valor. We have all these white militias, and white boys talking racist shit like they’re tough. These bastards can’t even take a punch to the jaw. I’m not the only one who has seen the videos of racists getting knocked out left and right, because they are too weak to fight us. However, too many of us lack valor. Individual match ups are won, but what are we doing collectively to train ourselves for their war? The federal government, CIA, FBI, US armed forces aren’t coming to save us. They are part of white supremacy. Our subjugation at large works to their advantage. These motherfuckers are killing babies in their concentration camps, while separated from their families.
White people have been able to control black people in America, Brazil, Africa, the Caribbean, because they’re using the same old tactics and blueprint that worked during slavery. Whenever they kill one of us to set an example, the rest of us run. We can’t live like that anymore. How many black men have been killed and nothing is done about it? We already know the justice department is not willing to prosecute anybody, because they think of us as worthless. It is up to us to add value to our lives. That can only happen when we decide to stand up and fight back. Fuck all that kumbaya shit! We have to fight fire with fire. We shouldn’t allow any cop to come into our neighborhood, murder anybody, and leave us as witnesses to their action. They are basically telling us we’re subhumans to be hunted at will. The cops should be dealt with, and not in anybody’s fucking courtroom either. There’s never any justice there. They have all types of laws to murder black people, including “Stand Your Ground,” and black people aren’t doing shit to stop the slaughtering of our people. Get your guns and get ready, because a war has been going on, and too many of y’all have been waving the white flag. Man the fuck up, so we can stop this bullshit. Also, white people don’t outnumber us like they want you to believe. That’s a tactic they use to keep us from fighting back. We have the numbers, and we must push back before we face annihilation at their hands like the Indians.
