With 45 – Just Follow The Money

1-The history of mankind is clear; no civilization has lasted when greed and injustice caused it to become rotten to its core. We have seen recently that the land of the so-called free and the home of the brave has reached this milestone in the most shameful and shocking ways. White folk, by and large, elected a man who is a bigot and racist to be the leader of the country and a cast of GOP conservatives that plans to destroy the nation as we knew it.

History is known to repeat itself and from the standpoint of governance and the transparency with regard to information exposing government practices, police killings, and dare I say, it is reminiscent the Third Reich of Nazi Germany. If you can recall, their reign of terror was perpetrated at the hands of taking away the free press and promoting fake news. The modern day Nazi’s is in place to take away all our rights in the most fascist ways. They lie and no one can believe anything that the American President says.

The problem is racism and although few will openly admit it. Racism is a dangerous disease more crippling and AID’s or cancer; it affects every action in American life. The new guy and I refuse to say his name, I just refer to him as 45, has a long history of bigotry and failures. Yes, they made him their champion because he told white folk what they wanted to hear and in fact what is in their hearts. Classic flimflam!

If President Obama had done anything close to what this guy has done Articles of Impeachment would already be on the floor of the Senate! So how could this be except for racism being the reason? When Obama was in office the least little thing he did was a catastrophe but the things guy says and does even a blind man can see nothing this guy does in going to end well. Or to use his favorite word a disaster! So why is it that white folk cannot see it. Racism is the only answer!

I am a believer in the way to see a man’s soul it to follow the money, which means his budget. So America gets a chance to see what this guy’s view of America going forward. A rise in military spending and cutting everything else; John Oliver can explain it to you! And that is my thought provoking perspective…


Hoodwinked

1-People have been “Hoodwinked” as long as there has been the sense of power over other people. No matter how ridicules the idea or scheme the majority of people fall for it! I won’t go back to the beginning of time but let me just go back a few thousand years. Someone came up with the concept of religion, albeit stolen from Africa, refined it, altered and change it. Then somehow convinced the world that God gave his only son to the world to die for the sins of mankind. They also told the world that he was a blonde haired blue eyed man that came from a region of the world that had no white people.

Further, they told people that a building was his house, a church, and that he left earth to prepare a place for man; only if you believe in him! This was the main staple of oppression, slavery, and death the world over. The truth is the have been more death and wars started in the name of religion than any other concept in all of history. The moral crime as I see it is that they came up with this idea of tithing, which is those people who believe in the Father must pay God so that the believer does not go to hell.

Surprising people do it faithfully, and you are probably guilty of doing this yourself. I get it, as humans we have to believe in something or we perish – got it. But everybody will die and when they do they are put in the ground, and supposedly go to this place in the sky as your reward for believing. This kind of logic has work on people in many different aspects of life. For example, the new president while running for office told the people nothing pertaining to fact or truth – just believe in him!

In this election, whether those voters who voted for this guy, admit or not, it was based and driven by race. I would say what the president has done, so far, relied on this same principle as religion – telling people such outlandish things like I am going to build a wall and he is going to drain the swamp. I will suggest that none of this will ever happen. Just like your belief in the white man’s religion that says Jesus is coming back is not going to happen nor will this guy build a wall.

This guy and his minions could not tell the true if their lives depended on it. Millions around the country and the world protest his policies, yet he remains the so-called president. Black people know that “we have got nothing coming from this guy” but white folk you need to understand neither do you! However it is you (white people) who must take credit for this disaster!

Herein is the problem; people are convinced to believe anything even if it does not produce little more than a dream or scheme. This is an old game, and it continues to work. America now has its champion, the face of White Supremacy and we shall see if Armageddon is going to happen. Whether it does or not, white people has reclaimed its racist posture and have been fooled into think they took their country back to the 18th century.

There are some of these so-called preaches claiming that this man is like one of Jesus’ disciples. I will tell you one thing for sure, like the church and its tithing only this guy and his cronies with get the money. So as we wait for Jesus’ return and the wall to be built neither will happen; my guess is that Jesus will come back before the wall is built. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


Conspiracy Theory: Manchurian Candidate

trumpI think I have figured it out, meaning the outrageous selection of 45 and all the things associated with ascending to be the now so-called president. We know he is what America is, racist to its core, even if white folk disagree. Russia and other outside business entities helped to make sure he would be the next president. This much we know!

Don’t misunderstand me, he is a crook and conman, which means he does have some smarts but surely not smart enough to be the leader of the free world and to date, he has proven that feat to be doubtful! I have come to the conclusion that he is more like a Manchurian Candidate programmed to be the many personalities that we see, particularly with regards to his narcissistic personality and conflicted mental state.

For those who don’t know, in 1959 a novel was written by Richard Condon which was a political thriller about the son of a prominent U.S. political family who is brainwashed into being an unwitting assassin for a Communist conspiracy. The novel has been adapted twice into a feature film by the same title, in 1962 and again in 2004. What I am saying is he is an assassin, rather his actions and policies will kill thousands of American people be it through healthcare or a war, which appears to be part of the game plan. Nonetheless, it appears that he has been brainwashed or controlled, to say the least!

Major Bennett Marco, Sergeant Raymond Shaw, and the rest of their infantry platoon are kidnapped during the Korean War in 1952. They are taken to Manchuria and are brainwashed to believe that Shaw saved their lives in combat for which Congress awards him the Medal of Honor. Although 45 avoided the war of his day nor did he get any legitimate medals. It could be very possible that he was conditioned or through the use of mind control conditioned him for the role he now plays.

We can see the GOP is thoroughly involved as their intent is to take back their (racist) country. Now, if other outside influences are involved it’s a conspiracy, but it is clear the aim is to roll back time to obtain the country it has been for most of its existence. With his buddy Jeff the top lawman I can see more concentration camps (prisons) ahead!

Back to the original story, years after the war, Marco, now back in the United States working as an intelligence officer, begins suffering the recurring nightmare of Shaw murdering two of his comrades, all while clinically observed by Chinese and Soviet intelligence officials. When Marco learns that another soldier from the platoon also has been suffering the same nightmare, he sets to uncovering the mystery and its meaning. I think it is fair to say that 45’s mission it to take as much money from the system for himself and the rich!

It is being revealed that the Communists, Russia, have been using him as a sleeper agent, knowingly or not, a guiltless white supremacist subconsciously to do evil on the population of America and beyond. It also appears that they have made him a puppet by what appears to be done by the Soviets to do their bidding for what appears to be a legitimist coup d’état” to quietly overthrow the U.S. government; certainly to open the door for or to make things more favorable for the Kremlin.

His fallback position is always to lie and there have been many and accuse the former president of everything that happens negatively on his watch, although he readily takes credit for anything that seems to be good. However, so far there has not been much that would be considered good. He has surrounded himself with the alt-right folks and his no nothing family to push an agenda designed to foster white supremacy. If president Obama had done anything close to the havoc he has caused at any time during his presidency impeachment proceeding would be underway.

What I see as more reprehensible is that his actions are as clear as the nose on your face but the conservative movement revels in his every action, which I can only conclude – as with everything in America – is racial. During slavery and Jim Crow, the policy was always “I am white and I say so”! In fact, it was written in the Dred Scott Decision that a black man has no rights that a white man is bound to respect. Muslim and Hispanic have come to be the new black. So we have entered the new age of Jim Crow!

Just take notice to all the closet bigots that have rolled over and come out openly to now want to kiss his ring and his narcotic nature adores the adulation! Whether or not he has been programmed for such evil I can’t say, but so far all of us should be frightened! We can see white folk have created a Frankenstein who will harm them as well as the “others”. WE SHOULD BE VERY FRIGHTENED!!! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

Revolutionary Icon Angela Davis

1-There have been countless freedom fighters during the four hundred year fight for black liberation and the struggle for freedom. Unfortunately, not many would survive to tell their story nor do black people recognized how significant the black woman was in the struggle. In modern times, there was a woman who fought the power and won. Her name is synonymous with the struggle. Her name is Angela Davis. She is an activist, educator, author, and a world-renowned icon who has authored many books and lectured throughout the United States, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America.

Davis gained her international reputation in the early 1970s when she was tried for conspiracy and imprisoned. She was later fully acquitted after being implicated in a shootout in front of a California courthouse. As a member of the Advisory Board of the Prison Activist Resource Center, Davis focused on exposing the racism that is endemic to the America’s prison system and exploring new ways to deconstruct oppression and race hatred.

Angela Davis was born in Birmingham, Alabama, January 26, 1944, in an area known as Dynamite Hill because of the large number of African American homes bombed by the Ku Klux Klan. She attended the segregated Carrie A. Tuggle Elementary School, and Parker Annex, a middle-school branch of Parker High School in Birmingham.

By her junior year, she had applied to and was accepted at an American Friends Service Committee program that placed black students from the South in integrated schools in the North. She chose Elisabeth Irwin High School in Greenwich Village in New York City. There she was introduced to socialism and communism where she was recruited by a Communist youth group, meeting children of some of the leaders of the Communist Party, including her lifelong friend, Bettina Aptheker.

Davis was awarded a scholarship to Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, where she was one of three black students in her freshman class. Feeling alienated by the isolation of the campus; Angela Davis worked part-time to earn enough money to travel to France and Switzerland before she went on to attend the eighth World Festival of Youth and Students in Helsinki, Finland.

She returned home in 1963 to an FBI interview about her attendance at the Communist-sponsored festival. Angela Davis would go on to study at the Sorbonne in Paris and later the University of Frankfurt. Finally, she earned a master’s degree from the University of California San Diego campus and her doctorate in philosophy from Humboldt University in East Berlin.

In 1969, Davis was known as a radical feminist and activist, a member of the Communist Party, and an associate of the Black Panther Party. She was working as an acting assistant professor in the philosophy department at UCLA. When the Federal Bureau of Investigation informed the California Board of Regents that Davis was a member of the American Communist Party, they terminated her contract in 1970.

Ms. Davis became active in the campaign to improve prison conditions. She became particularly interested in the case of George Jackson and W. L. Nolen, two African Americans who had established a chapter of the Black Panthers in California’s Soledad Prison. On the 13th of January 1970, Nolan and two other black prisoners were killed by a prison guard. A few days later the Monterey County Grand Jury ruled that the guard had committed “justifiable homicide.” When a guard was later found murdered, Jackson and two other prisoners were indicted for his murder. It was claimed that Jackson had sought revenge for the killing of his friend, W. L. Nolan.

On August 7, 1970, Superior Court Judge Harold Haley, along with several other hostages, was abducted from his Marin County, California, courtroom at gunpoint and murdered by 17-year-old Jonathon Jackson during his effort to free his brother George Jackson. The firearms used in the attack were purchased by Angela Davis, including the shotgun used to kill Haley, which had been purchased only two days prior and sawed-off.

Numerous letters written by Angela Davis were found in the prison cell of George Jackson, as well. The California warrant issued for Davis charged her as an accomplice to conspiracy, kidnapping, and homicide. On August 18, 1970, Davis became the third woman to appear on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives List.

Davis became a fugitive and fled California. She evaded the police for more than two months before being captured in New York City. John Abt, general counsel of the Communist Party, was one of the first attorneys to represent Davis for her alleged involvement in the shootings. While being held in the Women’s Detention Center there she was initially segregated from the general population, but with the help of her legal team soon obtained a federal court order to get out of the segregated area.

In 1972, she was tried, and the jury returned a verdict of not guilty. The mere fact that she owned the guns used in the crime was not sufficient to establish her responsibility for the plot. John Lennon and Yoko Ono wrote the song “Angela” on their 1972 studio album “Some Time In New York City” to show their support. Mick Jagger, of the Rolling Stones, wrote the song “Sweet Black Angel” in her support. The song was released in 1972 on the album Exile on Main Street.

She achieved tenure at the University of California at Santa Cruz despite the fact that former Governor Ronald Reagan swore she would never teach again in the University of California system. She taught me that revolution was of the mind and knowledge is the power needed to fight the power! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

From the Angela Davis Bio


Warrior Princess Assata Shakur

007_1000There has been much talk about Cuba since the president changed the government’s policy and the normalizing relations. One of the misconceptions about Cuba or at least the faces we see are white; not true. Most of the island’s population is made up of the descendants of African slaves. One thing of great concern to some is that the agencies tasked with law enforcement will try to seek extradition for Assata Shakur exiled there for many years.

I lived through the 1960s and witnessed the excessive efforts government agencies used to destroy black leaders and organizations all over the country. When they talk about terrorism, the government failed to address militias or the KKK. In fact, every black person is a political prisoner because our forefathers were kidnapped from our native lands.

Yet, people like Fred Hampton, Bunche Carter, Malcolm X, and Dr. King who was known as men of peace were all targeted through what was called COINTELPRO. In my view, there have been a consistent and sustained assaults on the freedom of people of color though police shootings and abuse, which is a most pressing issue in the African American community. The might go back to Nate Turner when anyone trying to change the system must be destroyed and violently.

I won’t rant too much on the decision to list the exiled former Black Panther Assata Shakur as the first woman named to the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list. So I will simply ask that you listen to legendary black activist, Angela Davis, as well as Shakur’s longtime attorney, Lennox Hinds. Davis, a professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, is the subject of the recent film, “Free Angela and All Political Prisoners.”

She argues that the FBI’s move much like its initial targeting of Shakur and other Black Panthers four decades ago is politically motivated. Listen to the facts and see if this is an effort to strike fear and retribution designed to frighten people who are involved in struggles today. Forty years ago may seem like it was a long time ago but slavery ended in 1865, and it took until 1965 for African American’s to use the same bathroom or drink from the same water fountain as whites.

We are now living in the 21st century, and we’re still fighting the very same issues — police violence, healthcare, education, people in prison, and poverty. A professor of criminal justice at Rutgers University, Mr. Hinds has represented Shakur since 1973 says that this is a political act pushed by the state of New Jersey, by some members of Congress from Miami; with the intent of putting pressure on the Cuban government and to inflame public opinion to capture her.

I say, let’s not forget this woman and hope the Cuban government will tell America to leave her alone. You be the judge. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

The Truth According To Who?

th-14The truth is most often used to mean being in accord with facts or reality, and fidelity to an original or standard. Truth may also often be used in modern contexts to refer to an idea of “truth to self,” or authenticity. The commonly understood opposite of truth is falsehood, not alternative facts – it’s a lie period. This crew or gang in charge now has made the truth a misnomer! The birther in chief and his folks has done more damage to the fabric of America in a month than Obama did or ever dreamed of doing. Yet, white folk are elated by this gang running things!

Every government since the beginning of time has fallen, most by people like this crew; maybe it is for America time. We knew what kind of men they were and saw how they opposed everything President Obama did or tried to do – obstruction and lies. This gang does not even try to hide their intent.

I am not in the predicting business but I can predict is with certainty expect a war, a draft, and a financial collapse! Every Republican that has been president has done this and Ray Charles could see this coming. In America, two things are outstanding and is American as apple pie (1) racism and (2) money. It is not that I know what’s done before it done but I know history and for that reason, we have seen people of this ilk before!

America is known as a place created for white folk – by white folk and not a place for the people of America (non-white), which is not an alternative fact but what history proves to be true! Listen, there is no accident that there are wars upon wars – there is money in it for the rich. White Supremacy reigns supreme, which is the truth. You hear them boastfully shout they want their country back – what did you they meant.

This is a good place to quote Malcolm X – we have been hoodwinked! Or could it be because “they are white and they say so”! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


Commentary: We Have “Not Overcome”

200_1000theIn a few days black history month will be over, and the pacification of white folk will end. If they care so much about black people – they would have told the truth about history instead of creating hi-story, which are lies to cover-up their dastardly deeds. I want anyone reading this to ask yourself – does it really take 400 years to end the systematic system of racism?

I’ve lived through segregation and knew the evils of the Jim Crow system first-hand and what I see today not much has changed. In fact, I don’t think the wretched system of racism is worse. Justice is still unjust and black people are still viewed as “less than” as the Constitution says and you know white folk love them some constitution! You do know it say we are 3/5ths human and the Supreme Court decision made it law that “a Negro has no right that white man is bound to respect” in the Dred Scott Decision.

Just as they always done, they hold up a few to make it appear as if we have “overcome” or achieved some measure of advancement. Malcolm would have called some of these folks who keep telling us everything is alright – “House Niggers” – I will call them covert operatives. It was Solomon that said “there is nothing new under the sun.” This is a powerful statement because very little has changed since the 1960s, even though they remind us of this mythical dream!

If you look at history, you will see that it repeats itself; the system is designed to protect the system, and that system excludes black people. They would deport black people if they could but there is nowhere to send us – remember they kidnapped us! Malcolm told us that “Anywhere south of Canada was south”, meaning wherever you are in America you were subjected to discrimination regarding the “separate but equal” laws and racism is the unwritten law of the land.

I am not just saying this to be as I have been called, a “race baiter”. It is the honest truth but white fold are in denial that racism even exists. Republicans Party in particular want to turn back the hands of time and take back their country, which they did by electing Trump who is the embodiment of all that white supremacy means. Their attempts to suppress voting rights is in no way different than the poll taxes from the days of segregation, so this is not new either – it’s just the American political structure. There have been many ways to suppress people over time; unfortunately, black people have endured the brunt of these efforts.

So there continue to be “Black Codes” which are laws passed designed specifically to take away civil rights and civil liberties of African American people. However, the difference today is that they just use different codewords to make it politically correct. This is the reason conservatives speak of taking back their country and have a strong desire to uphold “States Rights”; because at the state level laws can be unimpeded by the federal government. You can see this clearly today by the upsurge in the police killings and corruption under the cover of law all over the country while the country rushes to save those on distant lands wasting trillions.

I wrote an article a few weeks ago titled “The Making of a Slave” to which I received a comment from a guy; I’ll call Mr. White Man. I should assume he was a white man because he vociferously defended the American way! In the article, I talked about the Willie Lynch Syndrome. This guy goes on to tell me or in his mind educate me on the subject by telling me there was never a Willie Lynch and that the supposed letter was debunked years ago. He went on to say that there was no truth to the myth. However, what he did not understand that true or not, there is a system in place to ensure black people “love and respect only” them.

He went on to say, “how sad that I write about the bad things in history; how lucky I am for all that America has done for my people, and I should leave that stuff in the past”. Normally I don’t take the time to respond to fools because my grandfather taught me a long time ago “never argue with a fool”. However, his comment proves my point that he knows the game is rigged against people of color. He also knows he benefits from a privilege decreed by the “American Way”.

Malcolm X once said that it is time to stop singing and start swing! Overcoming is not insight unless we fight!!! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
