Micheal Brown’s Funeral: Wondering What Will It Mean Tomorrow…

download (1)

 

Michael Brown has been dead for three weeks but was buried on August 25, 2014.

I listened to the Tom Joyner Morning Show and he went, along with Sybil Wilkes And Jay Anthony Brown.  They re-capped the funeral as though talking about a sports event.  Tom admitted he cried and commented on how touching it was.  Sybil admitted that she was texting before the funeral started.  And all commented on how well Al Sharpton did at the funeral.  Why was he there anyway?

Immediately, I began to think if I were Michael Brown’s mother.  No way in hell would I allow people like Al Sharpton to make a spectacle of my child’s life and death.  It’s unacceptable.

There were other celebrities at the funeral and I just couldn’t help but to wonder WHY?

A lot of mourners attended who didn’t even know him but the infamy of the case drew them–and nothing more.

Micheal Brown was just another Black kid who got caught in the crossfire of an over-zealous white cop’s attitude and gun.

He joins Trayvon Martin, Jason Davis, former Florida A & M football player, 24 year old, Johnathan Ferrell, Renisha McBride, Eric Garner (New York man who died from banned choke hold from cop) Ezell Ford (shot in back by LA police), and more notably,Micheal Brown, who, like him, were all killed by white cops and citizens who thought that being black was an act of crime, and the threat of being a victim was so much, they couldn’t help but to defend themselves, prompted by racist thoughts far too deep for any sane person to understand.  With exception to Eric Garner, most of the shooting victims were under the age of 25.  Why did they have to die?  What was the purpose behind their deaths?  Is God trying to get our attention through them?

What is an African American to think after listening to back to back cases of senseless violence and predator profiling that has cost the lives of young people who didn’t have a chance to fulfill their lives?

Are African American youth being targeted?

What if these victims had been white?  What would be the reaction?

Police don’t target white males like they do Black males.  It is a proven fact that Black males are targeted more for arrest more than any group.  There are many social factors that aid this, but the bottom line is that if you are an African American male, chances are, violence is the next to follow–including death.  Basically, cops are more likely to shoot an African American male, even when there is no threat.

Let’s just get right to it: Since the election of Barack Obama as our nation’s first African American president, we’ve seen an incredible amount of hatred being directed at him and that has literally bounced off onto African Americans by proxy.

What has been happening is whites in America who for some reason, seem to feel as though everything is coming apart and the Laws of Economics are working against them–as it typically has for people of color.  But they are not used to it, and they need a scapegoat.

Just this morning, it has been reported that CNN will be laying off 500 people before the end of the year.

That’s more white folks unemployed and unable to live their American Dream.

Honestly, I was skeptical at all of the celebrity attention toward the funeral of Micheal Brown, but the change that must come…does not happen through marching, but people in the African American community to realize first, we are not unified as a people.  We bought into a lie and it’s backfiring big time.  Racism never ended. And we got side-tracked by pursuing bling-bling, artificial intelligence, and cosmetic buffoonery.  Hair weave replaced African pride.  And young Black males were literally conditioned for emasculation through the actions of welfare mothers without a clue of first, becoming housewives, instead of babymommas without a 10-year plan.  It takes a man to raise a man.  The images of fatherless young Black males is all too common–and our communities are paying a high price for it.

So, Micheal Brown has been buried.  His body is at rest.  People will put flowers on his grave.  And then…one day, they will stop coming.  The leaves will blow and fall on his tombstone.  Years will pass, then…no one will ask any more, Who was Michael Brown? He’ll just be another memory that will fade away with time.

Again, I ask, what will happen tomorrow?

 

Dear Ms. Thing…

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

“Yeah, baby. I’m worth it. And much, much, more.”

Dear ItGirl of the Millenium,

Word to your ears…Everyone is not trying to be you.

How presumptuous of you to think that everything is ABOUT YOU.

Well, I’m here to tell you, it’s not, Boo.

Your hair weave is spectacular and your designer clothes are smashing, but you never thought of buying a house and your kid can’t even spell P-R-A-D-A.    Hhhmmm…isn’t that counter-intuitive?

The I’m-all-there-is-and-you-will-never-be me’s of the world, I’m talking to you!

The world is not here to serve you.  And you put your own trash in the garbage.

It’s not about you, sweet pea.

Never was…never will be.

Get the memo and stop kissing your mirror.

We all are tired of your kind.

The Housewives of Atlanta is not quality programming–it’s a warning what can happen to women who lose track and start thinking that they aren’t accountable to certain standards of behavior, and glaring examples of extreme arrested development, coupled by enabling of glamorous sociopaths who obviously have untreated behavioral disorders.

And then the music will play…and people will scream and holler when you call someone a bitch, slap her, and then you get into a fight.  Two grown ass women, acting like 16 year old girls.  We only wonder which one is going to pull out the box cutter.

Earth to you, Boo.  Get a clue.  Face yourself, girl.  You are ugly as they come and need to expand mentally and spiritually.  You’re as empty as air and could provoke one to personally dial 911 before you become a missing person.

Basically, I’m tired of empty-headed women with nothing to prove but who they f*ck, take money from, and what they can buy with their child support check(s).

The world needs people who care and will make it better.

And frankly, no one has time for those who don’t take the time to think about that.

Welcome Back SWV!

 

Back in 1992, I bought their first album, It’s About Time, and was hooked with the sound of these 3 young ladies.  It was just one of many albums from the nineties that would define a sound quality that even today, has not been duplicated.

Well, you can see and hear everything on the SWV Reunited series on WeTV regarding the gr0up.  I’ll post the Season One Comeback episode for all the SWV fans out there.

Again, Welcome Back, Ladies!!!

Are People Getting Tired of Tyler Perry?

Have you been noticing something a little different about the turnout for Tyler Perry movies of late?  Hhhhhmmm…I started noticing it when he made the stupid mistake to cast Kim KarTRASHian in the movie, Temptation.   Then he did it again when casting Larry The Cable Guy in his last Madea movie, A Madea Christmas.  Why are you resulting to putting white characters in movies that are geared toward a Black audience?

When his last movie, Single Moms Club was released and bombed at the box office., people began to whisper.  It was a dull movie with a cast of women that no one believed would ever be friends in real life, so why make a movie about such and unlikely cast of women?

Lionsgate recently ended its long-term relationship with Perry after 9 years.  It does not mean that they won’t work together on future projects, but Tyler is basically a free agent now and did have issues with the lack of international reach of Lionsgate.  He’s pretty much consolidated operations to his Atlanta headquarters, where 4 of his TV series s are shot.

Basically, I’ve enjoyed the Madea series movies–have seen all of his non-Madea movies except the last 3.  I am a cheerleader for Mr. Perry for achieving success in an arena with very few Blacks, so I will not debase him. However, I do think it’s time for him to grow and the criticism he’s facing has some merit.

Many Black men hate him for his dismal images of them in his movies.  The introduction of white characters in his story lines seems desperate for acceptance by the white audiences, but many Blacks see it as an intrusion to something that was built by Black support.

Then there are people who hate him because of his friendship with Oprah Winfrey, especially Black males, who tired of her male bashing on her now defunct Oprah Winfrey Show, and the general, annoying cry-parties Oprah and Tyler have regarding their histories of physical and sexual abuse.

The controversy Tyler ensued with criticism from notable movie director, Spike Lee for his belief of Tyler using coonery and buffoonery in many of his movies, sparked a lot of debate on Tyler using stereotypical imagery of Black people in his movies.

Whether or not you like Tyler Perry, it’s not so much about people getting tired of Tyler Perry in as much as it is a sign of perhaps people needing more a mental challenge from him.

Hopefully, he will weigh it all in and create more interesting stories.

Love him or hate him, no on can disagree that Tyler Perry has made move Black actors and actresses rich than any Hollywood Producer from any genre.

 

A Word To The LGBT Community: We Don’t Have To Agree With Your Lifestyle!

This morning, I signed on to facebook to learn that I was kicked out of one of the groups because of my opinion about homosexuality.

Apparently, there is a high concentration of them there and if you are heterosexual and do not agree with their lifestyle and express that, then you are being offensive.  No.  You’re expressing your opinion.  Free Speech is still a right in this country and not exclusive to the GLBT community.

Frankly, let me just get down to the real nitty-gritty: some people find living in this manner immoral, disgusting, and should not feel in any way apprehensive about standing up for what number one: God stated in the Bible as being an abomination, and two: what even many psychiatrists feel is a lifestyle that offers no real happiness.  That’s my opinion.

I will not normalize what is abnormal nor will I sanction depravity. I AM NOT LIKE YOU and I don’t want to be you!

Either one stands for something or will fall for anything.

This is where our society is today.

Never in my wildest dreams would I believe that this country would allow it’s politics to get to a point where people who stand for traditional family values and morals to become victims of baseless hedonists who think by employing aggressive polarization tactics; their agenda can be forced down the throats of an entire nation.

Writer, Cal Thomas, said it best: “Once, Social Security was the “third rail” of politics. Touch it and face political death. Now it is homosexuality. Criticize anything gay people do and you risk ostracism, fines, suspension or loss of your livelihood.”

This has become true, and why?  Who allowed this?

There was a time in this country when people of this persuasion better not even think about harassing heterosexuals about not accepting their lifestyle.  It was not normal to people, and frankly, it was for people who were confused about their sexuality–nothing more.  It is not natural, nor is it healthy.

Of course, many from the gay and lesbian community will argue that many heterosexual have sex with abandon, why shouldn’t they?  No one is trying to control your adult choices, but when your choice of lifestyle is being rubbed in my face ever single day, we are going to have a problem.

Human life wouldn’t exist if it were not for the unions of men and women.  You can’t sustain a society with people who are of the same sex–having marital titles, and sexual liberties, but not being  or acting in accordance with natural laws. A man and woman were meant to be together.

I do not believe that children are born gay.  I do believe that the causes of homosexuality are a combination of ‘biological and postnatal environment factors.’

Many children come from parents who are dysfunctional in some way or who have been molested or raped as children.

So why do gay and lesbian people have such hatred toward heterosexuals?  Why do they want to be validated by Christians?  What is the real agenda?   Well, today, I’m going to expose it for what it really is:

A Self-Styled ‘Gay Revolutionary’ Offers a Challenge to Straight America:
“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, …wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us. All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our holy gods are handsome young men. …We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed…”

Michael Swift – Boston Gay Community News – February 15-21, 1987
(From the Traditional Values Coalition Special Report, Vol. 18., No. 10)

Find out about the homosexual movement and its link to pedophilia.

Clearly not everyone in the homosexual movement is an extremist. Many are solid, law-abiding citizens who make important daily contributions to our society and do not believe in confrontation or hard-line rhetoric. However, many militant homosexuals and their supporters have different beliefs. They have adopted the following tactics with the goal of forcing their beliefs on society:

  • eliminating free speech by harassing and attempting to silence anyone who disagrees with them;
  • preying on children by indoctrinating and recruiting them into their lifestyle;
  • imposing their beliefs on others through activist judges and lawmakers requiring that everyone actively promote homosexuality in every institution (schools, workplace, churches, etc.);
  • destroying marriage and undermining the traditional family in order to annihilate any moral standard of behavior;
  • intolerance toward anyone who does not willingly submit to their agenda;
  • fighting for a discriminatory and unconstitutional double standard of justice by demanding that crimes against homosexuals be punished more severely than the same crimes against heterosexuals through ‘hate crimes’ legislation; and
  • deceptively portraying homosexuality as a harmless and victimless behavior.

The homosexual agenda is based on intolerance of anyone who disagrees with them and is a well-coordinated, well-financed, wide-ranging, intensive effort to infiltrate and influence organizations and society at large in order to spread misinformation with the goal of recruiting children. Click for homosexual quotes.

Children are the prize to the winners of the cultural war. Those who control what young people are taught and what they experience will determine the future course for our nation. The predominant value system of an entire culture can be overhauled by those with unlimited access to children. Homosexual activists understand very clearly how important children are to their cause.

And this is just some of the breakdown of it.

Basically, I’m not going to be spending a lot of time apologizing to a group of people I don’t identify with.  I have a right not to like how they live.  I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO HOW THEY LIVE.  And I will never, ever, ever, feel intimidated for standing up for what I believe it right, and I’m prepared to defend how I believe BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

My advice to the gay and lesbian community is this: Heterosexuals brought you into this world–and we will take you out.  Be prepared for the push-back.

As of this post–as of today,  ALL HETEROSEXUAL PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SET FREE!!!

We do not have to accept your lifestyle!  You are not the NEW NORMAL, but the symbol of what is dysfunctional in our society.

 

When Your Black Son Brings Home His Gay White Boyfriend to Dinner…

shaun-t-shirtless-husband-abs

This is Exercise Guru, Sean T and his husband…

Today, I’ve been all over the place online and one thing caught my attention that I feel needs to be addressed.

During the 60’s, our priorities in our community was racism.  But somehow, the agenda changed when Black women bought into the feminist movement, designed by and for white women, stopped caring about the racial struggle, then embraced the false ideology of women being in charged, stopped getting married, had babies without fathers, went on welfare, then tried to raise sons without having a strong male role model in the home.

Now, your sons are bringing home a white dude as his girlfriend.

What happened?

Why are so many brothers thinking that a man’s ass is a vagina?

Younger people are ambivalent–they say, they don’t see what the big deal is.  It’s not a big deal if there wasn’t a disparity of children being raised by a single mother, the high incarceration rate of Black males, the high drop out of Black males, the high murder rate of Black males, and then, you begin to see a pattern of destruction within the African American community that can be linked to a systematic agenda to destroy the Black male.  Just one less Black man for a Black woman to marry. Seems to be a trend in the African American community. Ambivalence is the new genocide. Have a baby–don’t marry the father–watch another Black child grow up without a father–he brings home a dude–then marries him. Wow. What a paradigm.

Any Black women that embrace homosexuality in effect have just legitimized White Supremacy at its finest. When an enemy wants to destroy a stronger enemy, they first attack the male–removing the masculine identity from the community, retarding the male’s role in that community, creating a false doctrine in the women to believe that not having a male in the home is normal, but welfare is. When the man is removed, they attack the sons, who in turn, have no protection from their fathers, inviting those who wish to abuse or exploit them, and not having any defense to protect them. Basically, this was a test. I shake my head at the ignorance of Black people today. I can’t make you be what you don’t want to be, but when you allow someone to make you into something you weren’t designed to be; you’ve allowed yourself to be the living example of your enemy’s hatred. If homosexuality is correct, how is it strengthening the Black community?

Where are we going, Black people?

Who is defining our image?  And why are so many of us clueless and just refuse to get it?

You can go on any online site and if the topic of homosexuality comes up, and god forbid if you don’t embrace homosexuality, then the taunts and rage come.

How did it get like this in this society?

When did having a man’s penis up another man’s behind become the new normal?

Something is wrong and I’m taking a stand against it.

Homosexuality was a systematic strategy to reduce the Black population. And if there are some of you here who claim to be educated and are embracing homosexuality, you really just are not understanding the war that has been waged against Black people.  This is the destruction of Black manhood.

A lot of Black people today are lost and white people know it. That’s why so much is being marketed to our community that literally is brainwashing our people to participate in their own destruction.

Black people, WAKE UP!

 

 

African American Youth: What Are They To Hope For?

AfricanAmericanyouth

My generation was birthed by the Civil Rights generation and as we grew up, we enjoyed the fruits of struggle that our parents and grandparents fought so hard for.  We didn’t have a worry or care about tomorrow–our parents worked hard, gave us what they didn’t have, and taught us to believe in the impossible–we could achieve anything with hard work.  To be young, gifted, and Black was a good thing.

Well, that was then…and as I look at what is going on in Ferguson, MO: the 0utcry of the Black community there to the shooting death of Micheal Brown,  I have to wonder, are young African Americans even allowed to be so carefree in what they believe today, given the grim reality of being young in 2014.

What happened to the dream?

These children, most of whom were born in the eighties and early nineties, don’t seem to be able to have much fun.  They are bombarded by realities that my generation knew of, but were told to avoid if we wanted to be successful, happy, and prosperous people. These kids were abandoned and the realities of being young and Black are dismal: http://www.juancole.com/2013/07/african-american-numbers.html  Here’s another: http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/race/news/2012/03/13/11351/the-top-10-most-startling-facts-about-people-of-color-and-criminal-justice-in-the-united-states/

America has failed them, but worse than that, so have the African American community.

How can you give birth to children that you don’t empower?

They have become targets.

As I watched the situation in Ferguson, MO unfold, paralleling the trial of the white man (Theodore Wafer) in Dearborn, Michigan who shot Renisha McBride to death while she made the mistake of knocking on his door one night–this seems to be more than a pattern–it’s an attitude in white people that young Black people are a threat–even when they are not.

wafer-mcbride

We love to blame white people, but this is a problem in the home that has impacted the community.  Not to blame poor people for much of what ills this nation, of this would be too simple, however, the systemic nature of larger institutions creating stumbling blocks that cause disenfranchisement, must be recognized as well.  This is done deliberately to inhibit people of color achieving.  Still yet, poor people often times participate in their own destruction for lack of knowledge.

For one, too many young Black girls are having babies, not marrying, and thus, creating an unstable community.  As they grow older, they choose men to be in their lives that are not always stable figures nor good examples for their children.  They endanger not only their own lives, but the lives of their own children.

This is slave behavior.  Slaves weren’t allowed to marry during our ancestors enslavement in this country, but they were encouraged to co-habitate and impregnate women, as to add to the herd, so to speak, for slave masters to have more bodies to sell.

Dr. Umar Johnson remarked that the school system today is literally becoming ground zero for the penal institution.

Yet, when we talk about race being a factor, white folks have the audacity to get offended, calling us racist. We must stop giving a damn what white folks think.

We must change, people.

Our children are endangered and the focus must be on taking charge and helping our children be all they can be–BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Family is sacred and if we don’t care about our children, don’t expect the world to.
