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…


Lying Donald’s Ten Point Plan For Black Folk

fotoflexer_animationI know there are many people alarmed and have a lot of anxiety because Donald Trump has been elected president. But I will tell you don’t worry because this guy knows nothing about governing; he will rely on the people around him who has his ear that put things in his head, and you can see what kind of people he surrounds himself with; NEOCONs and evil crooked people.

Donald Trump’s slogan for African-Americans has been, “What do you have to lose?” It’s the mantra he repeated over and over again while proclaiming that black people live in poverty in neighborhoods that are more dangerous than war zones. According to Trump, black people have horrible educations and are jobless while living in squalor.

He went on to say our government has totally failed our African American friends, our Hispanic friends and the poor people of our country. Trump said during a rally in Akron, Ohio. Now, he rolled out a new deal for Black America. Here is his so-called 10 point plan:

1. Great Education Through School Choice. We will allow every disadvantaged child in America to attend the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. School choice is the great civil rights issue of our time, and Donald Trump will be the nation’s biggest cheerleader for school choice in all 50 states. We will also ensure funding for Historical Black Colleges and Universities, more affordable 2 and 4-year college, and support for trade and vocational education.
2. Safe Communities. We will make our communities safe again. Every poor African-American child must be able to walk down the street in peace. Safety is a civil right. We will invest in training and funding both local and federal law enforcement operations to remove the gang members, drug dealers, and criminal cartels from our neighborhoods. The reduction of crime is not merely a goal – but a necessity
3. Equal Justice Under the Law. We will apply the law fairly, equally and without prejudice. There will be only one set of rules – not a two-tiered system of justice. Equal justice also means the same rules for Wall Street.
4. Tax Reforms to Create Jobs and Lift up People and Communities. We will lower the business tax from 35 percent to 15 percent and bring thousands of new companies to our shores. We will also have a massive middle-class tax cut, tax-free childcare savings accounts, and childcare tax deductions and credits. We will also have tax holidays for inner-city investment, and new tax incentives to get foreign companies to relocate in blighted American neighborhoods. We will empower cities and states to seek a federal disaster designation for blighted communities in order to initiate the rebuilding of vital infrastructure, the demolition of abandoned properties, and the increased presence of law enforcement.
5. Financial Reforms to Expand Credit to Support New Job Creation. We will have financial reforms to make it easier for young African-Americans to get credit to pursue their dreams in business and create jobs in their communities. Dodd-Frank has been a disaster, making it harder for small businesses to get the credit they need. The policies of the Clintons brought us the financial recession – through lifting Glass-Steagall, pushing subprime lending, and blocking reforms to Fannie and Freddie. It’s time for a 21st century Glass-Steagall and, as part of that, a priority on helping African-American businesses get the credit they need. We will also encourage small-business creation by allowing social welfare workers to convert poverty assistance into repayable but forgive-able micro-loans.
6. Trade That Works for American Workers. We will stop the massive, chronic trade deficits that have emptied out our jobs. We won’t let our jobs be stolen from us anymore. We will stop the off shoring of companies to low-wage countries and raise wages at home – meaning rent and bills become instantly more affordable. We will tell executives that if they move their factories to Mexico or other countries, we will put a 35% tax on their product before they ship it back into the United States.
7. Protection from Illegal Immigration. We will restore the civil rights of African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and all Americans, by ending illegal immigration. No group has been more economically harmed by decades of illegal immigration than low-income African-American workers. Hillary’s pledge to enact “open borders,” – made in secret to a foreign bank – would destroy the African-American middle class. We will reform visa rules to give American workers preference for jobs, and we will suspend reckless refugee admissions from terror-prone regions that cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars. We will use a portion of the money saved by enforcing our laws, and suspending refugees, to re-invested in our inner cities. 8. New Infrastructure Investment. We will leverage public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over ten years, of which the inner cities will be a major beneficiary. We will cancel all wasteful climate change spending from Obama-Clinton, including all global warming payments to the United Nations. This will save $100 billion over eight years. We will use these to help rebuild the vital infrastructure, including water systems, in America’s inner cities.

9. Protect the African-American Church. We will protect religious liberty, promote strong families, and support the African-American church. 10. America First Foreign Policy. We will stop trying to build Democracies overseas, wasting trillions, but focus on defeating terrorists and putting America First.

So let me say again that Trump will not serve his full term. We will get Mike Pence as president and that is more frightening than Trump! Also, let’s see if this comes to pass or this wall, which I will say it will never happen. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


Mourning In America: Welcome To The 1950’s

11When Barack Obama was elected in 2008, many assumed a “post-racial” America was upon us. They were fiercely wrong. People believed America had somehow reconciled its shameful racial history by electing a black man into the White House. It was merely good optics! As it turned out, one man alone could not undo the countless systemic issues that have plagued a country built on slavery. During Obama’s last year in office, we saw just how deeply wrong the idea of a “post-racial” era was with the rise of the alt-right movement and the racist attacks that have unfolded as a result of Donald Trump’s campaign for president.

Now that Trump is the president-elect we will see racism rise to a level not seen since the days of old. A few days ago we set the clocks back one hour; last night the clock was set back a half a decade. I have seen a lot over my years, racism that was unthinkable, but last night’s victory for Trump made me think of the coming “nightmare”! Many attributed Trump’s success to his ability to turn out white working-class voters. I say no; rather it was due to racism and bigotry, let’s be clear race was an important factor in this election.

“This was a white lash against a changing country… It was a white lash against a black president in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes.” Yeah, when they say they want to take their country back; you got a lot of white people who feel fervently believe that white people are losing America and Trump will be the champion of that motto! Dare I say, for all non-white people “there are some difficult days ahead!”

The history books will record last night and surely January 20th the day they took back their country by having allowed Donald Trump to be elected President of the United States. No doubt, the Democratic Party failed miserably. But something else was truly at play here. To ignore it or rubberneck around it might be convenient, but it’d be wrong. This victory was all about race and a repudiation of anything Obama has achieved.

Step one: millions of people will lose health insurance, stacking the Supreme Court with bigots, repealing every executive order Obama signed, appointing the shameless people that Trump has had around him, more concerning the appointment of a Rudy Giuliani or a Chris Christie as Attorney General!Or even reinstituting Slavery as he deports the Hispanics and bar all Muslims!!!

From the moment he announced his candidacy, Donald Trump ran a campaign of white supremacy and white pride. In fact, his true entry into presidential politics predated his bigoted, anti-immigrant announcement speech that he delivered in the summer of 2015. Instead, it was his attack on the very humanity of President Obama that signaled to the worst elements of our country that Donald Trump was a bigot with a very low bar for what he was willing to say or do to attack people of color.

Without a single shred of evidence, Trump insisted President Obama was not an American citizen but was born in Kenya or somewhere else other than the United States. None of this mattered to Trump or his growing base of bigots. All that mattered was that they now had a spokesperson that would openly and champion the cause of their bigotry and the more Trump embraced his role as a public bigot, the deeper, more dangerous, and uglier it got. Racism and bigotry is no longer in the shadows.

Before Donald Trump won the Republican nomination, his base was almost exclusively made up of white, rural conspiracy theorists and racists. So, when he announced his candidacy, Trump, fully understanding his base, launched right into calling Mexicans rapists and robbers. Of course, his base absolutely loved it. Then, he pledged to forcefully deport every undocumented immigrant in the country in two years or less. When pressed on specifics, he gave us little, but his base ate it up. Before long, his next significant announcement was that he would, as a policy, ban all Muslims from entering our country. Never mind the legality and logistics of such a thing, which say to hell with the constitution or any law.

Trump won the Republican nomination because he was driven by a philosophy of white supremacy, racism, bigotry, and xenophobia. It appealed so much to his base that they were willing to look past moral failures. This guy was endorsed by the KKK, favored by David Duke, beloved by neo-Nazis and white supremacist publications everywhere; Trump resonated so much with white America that they elected him President of the United States. Let’s hold our breath until the wall is built!

He was simply willing to appeal to the very worst instincts of our country, and it worked. In fact, the Republicans have had a plan to turn back the hands of time – like 1950. With Trump as president now the can! I have long since believed that the United States is deeply racist at its core. This election has confirmed it. The white people you know and think are your friends and neighbors voted for him. If ever the phrase God Bless America is needed and for those who pray – now is a good time to ask for it. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
