Hot Shit!

hqdefault-3

I’m sitting here looking out the window, listening to Common’s Like Water For Chocolate, and this track (title) is playing.  It got me to thinking about a lot of things; and the title has me feeling some kind of way.  Remember the days when Black music made you get amped?  I’m not feeling this current state of negativity and fear right now.  I’m a warrior and I’m looking for the battle–not running from it. I’m just that kind of chick.

Where are the warriors!  Where?  Where are those dudes that walked down the street in the neighborhood who walked in a squad–like African lions, fearless, strong, no equal in sight?  Their presence was bold; and no one dared challenge them.  Cold Blooded. Ruthless.  Kings!

There was a time when Black folks walked like the kings and queens we called ourselves. We were uppity.  Proud.  Unapologetic.

BLACK AMERICA IS DEAD!

Black culture has been on a respirator and so has the country.  Our spirit has been weakened and this country it seems is on life support.  When our fire rises.  America soars. It is our energy that makes everything move with rhythm.  From music to fashion, everything we touched was more creative.  Like the sun brightens and nourishes; so did our culture do the same for this country we call America.

Love and Happiness.  Will it return?  Will we dance again?  Will the funk revive the Funkateers who have been hibernating, in distress from so much gloom?

I wonder.

So I listen to Common.  And I hunger for something different to revive us.  Something that will make the light shine again.  I miss good times.

And so I fantasize we’ll be happy again.  Making this place pop!  Elevating everything around us!  It’s time to push evolution through our consciousness.  Create from the divinity within each of us.  Find out identity again.

It’s time to flip this script!

Time to start a new thing!  Afrofuturism please!  Take us away…to another galaxy.  Our existence here has been compromised.

The world is waiting for Black People to return!

 

 

I’m A Ruthless…@$&F! And I’ll Prove It!

No.  This isn’t me.  But the attitude conveyed in the pic, fits.  Yeah.  I’m feeling some kind of way today.  I’m unapologetic and dare anyone to try me–just once.

Had a nice talk this morning with a friend.  We were discussing nosy, aggravating MUTHAS who don’t know how to mind their own business but have enough time to try and manage your life.  This really was just venting for me.  One of my aunts had called me the previous night–and upon answering the phone, the woman didn’t even say hello but proceeded to tell me what to do about a matter in which she, number one, had no input financially or spiritually, and two, it was NONE OF HER DAMN BUSINESS.  This particular aunt is very proactive in trying to dictate what others should do in situations but she is also the aunt who spent years in an abusive marriage, was a co-dependent, never went to college, never worked, was an alcoholic, drug addict, chronic smoker, LOVED TO PARTY, et al, but yet, she now thinks that because she finally started going to church; it is her duty to handle everyone else’s affairs.  But here’s the kicker: I NEVER ASKED FOR HER HELP OR ADVICE. Of course, I told her off.  She couldn’t handle my truth, thus, she hung up in my face.  Oh! I don’t play that!  Immediately, I blocked her number.

I’m not in the mood for this.

The audacity of this woman.  I guess she forgot where she came from. I had to remind her: Just because you stopped getting high, doesn’t mean you’re clean. Anything can trigger your addiction again. The sky is too high to be sitting on a pedestal, looking down at those who are still crawling. Don’t fall and break your neck.

Have you ever just not cared?  I mean…you really, really, REALLY, don’t care and you actually fantasize about some unsuspecting nimrod who becomes foolishly bold, and decides to try you, simply based on their presumption that “you won’t do anything to them…” So they think.  But they don’t know you, do they?  They…DON’T.  And like any cat, you have to discipline the little mouse who didn’t realize the power it was tempting.

This morning, my aunt called…very early.  It was 6:00 a.m.  My mother, who lives with me, answered the phone.  I was getting reading for work.  I don’t talk on the phone that early in the morning if it isn’t an emergency. They spoke briefly.  When she got off the phone, she mentioned my aunt said she loved me.

Really?

My eyebrow raised.  Oh, she had a touch of conscience? Woman, please…I know your ass, ok.

Yeah. Whatever…

Family, right.

 *Rolling eyes*

Black Soul….2017!

My politics haven’t changed.

The year just begun and I’m still checking out everything; and studying even more.

I’m still trying to figure out what will be the position of our new leaders.

Regardless of what they do, Black America must make its own determination as to where its headed.

Everyone is on edge.  Many are angry. Some are hurt.  Others are completely clueless. People are marching, holding up signs of their rage, expectations or just wanting to vent personal insults at people they don’t have the skill to defeat.  But what good is this supposed to do if there is no agenda to begin with?  Where is all this energy going to go?

We are at a crossroads in this society.  What have we become, Black people?

Right now, I’m watching a video from The Honorable Louis Farrakhan.  He’s speaking to a group of young Black males–laying it down as he does; and telling them point blank what’s up.

The journey that I have been on has been lifelong but within the last 20 years; my intelligence, soul and instincts, have been magnified.  I feel everything.  And what I”m feeling right now is that we are being judged by God.  All of these signs that are before us are literally God speaking to humanity.  He is telling us all that whether we believe in him or not; HE IS REAL!  And his wrath is upon ALL NATIONS!  We have forgotten him and this generation is one of the most wicked in modern times.

Before there is resurrection; there must be death.  And that is the reason why so much bloodshed has been taking place.

Whether some of you want to believe it or not…we have an enemy!  That enemy has already positioned this world for its personal use and destruction if need be.  We are powerless to stop them.

It’s time to WAKE UP!

The Music of Bob Marley is The Remedy For Our Trying Times…

This weekend, one of my aunts was laid to rest after an unexpected illness.  I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately and today, Bob Marley came to mind.  His music means so much to so many people around the world.

Redemption song was based on slavery in the new world.

Does this not sound like what we’re feeling subliminally?

Bob Marley was a unique individual as well as an inspired artist.  He used his music to educate, empower, and protest the powers that be.

In light of everything happening, I chose to post one of his last concerts before he passed away in 1982.

Watch, grow and listen.

Enjoy!

They Keep “Mistakenly” Killing Black Men!!! Enough Of This Shit!

***Right now…I’m listening to Fear of a Black Planet.  That album came out almost 30 years ago and its message is as relevant today as it was in 

What’s going to be the tipping point?

Yesterday, a live stream video went viral showing a local Tulsa, Oklahoma man, Terrence Crutcher, being gunned down by a white female officer, later identified as, Betty Shelby. He was unarmed. He wasn’t a threat.  His car has stalled in the road and he was walking toward the police for help.  The police recorded video, with audio, exposed one of the officers in the helicopter stating after Terrance got out of the car, that, “He looks like a bad dude.”  Well that “bad dude” was coming home from class.  That “bad dude” was a father. That “bad dude” had a twin sister. That “bad dude” sang in his church choir.  That “bad dude” had a wife who is now in pain after having to understand the senseless manner in which her husband died.

The reactions on line were angry but many kept asking the question: “When is this going to stop?”

This is exactly why Colin Kaepernick is protesting.

So, another Black man was “mistakenly” killed?

No one is that stupid.

We see what is going on.

It’s becoming an epidemic and demands a counter response–violent if necessary.

These are legalized executions of Black males by white led police departments.  And I’m not hearing anymore of the typical response, “we feared for our lives.”

BULLSHIT!

The problem is not your fear but opportunity to carry out legalized killings of a population of males that threaten white supremacy the most!!!

There are so many images of this, it’s literally become like a sick inside joke for police departments as to how they respond to these orchestrated killings.

From children to man in wheelchairs.

On the same day, a man in North Carolina was shot and killed for carrying a book.  Per usual, the cop said that he “thought he had a gun…”

No one is hearing this any longer. Even celebrities are speaking out about this.

The time has come, Black people.  We are THE ENEMY of White Supremacy.

Are we going to let them keep killing our people and do nothing or are we going to FIGHT? Do Black Lives Really Matter?

The choice is yours.

As of today, another Black woman plans a funeral.

 

 

The BET Awards…SHUT IT DOWN!

Watch speech: http://www.tmitchtv.com/r/4qyyT

Wow.  It’s all I can say after watching the BET awards clip of Grey’s Anatomy actor, Jesse Williams.  Now, I gotta be honest.  I really don’t watch the BET awards but over the years, they’ve had some great moments in performances.  However, this year, BET sho’ nuff caught the spirit.

I happened to catch news clips on Monday night of the show and saw nuances of this man’s speech.  Today, I looked for it…and all can really say is DAYUM!  He just put the nail in the coffin of the vampire!  Powerful speech and fearless.  He just killed it. It always comes in 3’s: First Beyonce shocked America and the world with Formation, then Kendrick Shut it down at the Grammy’s. And this right here: PURE TRUTH spoken in the face to White Supremacy! Bravo!  He shook up the world with that speech.  The earth shook!

And before people start commenting, I’m just going to say something, exposing the elephant in the room.  Jesse Williams is biracial.  His parents were in the audience when he gave this speech.  Many Black people in the conscious community are rejecting the messenger because they don’t like his packaging.

Let me tell you this: I’m not a big fan of biracials who try to play both sides; using Black victim-ism when it suits them, but not denouncing the white privilege they are extended by proxy, via having a white parent.

I’ve seen that…however, what Jesse did was one of the boldest moves I’ve seen in a long time from an artist in the entertainment industry.  Yes, he’s biracial, but he spoke bluntly to a systemic oppression that all of us know all too well.

There are many Black entertainers with mono-racial parents who could have done what he did; but sadly, many in the industry find coonin’ more profitable and turn a blind-eye to the pain of their people.

Jesse could be blackballed in Hollywood for speaking this boldly.  He’s only a television actor but the bottom line here: he spoke the absolute TRUTH to White Supremacy. His skin color is a product of nature. His passion for what he spoke about, is a product of character.

So, what does this all mean?

It has been a remarkable time in Black history.  We’ve lost great musical icons, most noteworthy, Prince,  but we’ve gained a new consciousness awakening in our young artists, like Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar.

The BET awards opened with Beyonce and Kendrick.  Bey came in, Queen style, electrifying the crowd, then…Kendrick Lamar appeared to just bring the fire down, as the two performed Freedom on stage.  The crowd went wild.

Here is a clip of the performance:

http://www.bet.com/video/betawards/2016/performances/beyonce-kendrick-lamar-freedom.html

Just gives you goosebumps watching the two of them linking up like that; sending an even more powerful message to the powers that be of a people who is WAKING UP and JUDGEMENT IS AT HAND!!!

God has been warning white people in America for a long time….his children are no longer asleep.

I’m so proud at this time.  My  hope has been restored.

Musical artists have great power in that they can stir the masses.  This right here is the catalyst to THE GREAT REBIRTH of our people.

Its time has come!

Mexican Gangbangers in Southern California NEED TO BE CHECKED!

Today, I was just searching through Youtube, looking for new stories to check out.  And I ran across the above video.

It’s been widely reported about the racial tension between Black and Mexican gangs in Los Angeles for many years and it runs deep.

Many of you know of Monster Kody Scott, aka Sanyika Shakur from his critically acclaimed book, Monster, originally published in 1993.  I read that book and it’s right up there with The Autobiography of Malcolm X.  Very powerful book.

For some reason, I had my mind on him–interested in knowing what he’s doing now.  In my research adventure, I ran across this video by chance.  And wow!  As I watched it, the ignorance captured just centers on the hatred that has been reported about Mexican gangs toward African Americans in southern California.  I listened to it and commented:

My, my, my. Someone call the zoo, I think some of the gorillas escaped.

You know something, these Beaners are absolutely ignorant. And that’s just the real issue.

Between the 4 of them, they probably have a double digit IQ (LOW LEVEL).

Mexican men are obviously jealous of Black men. To get any attention, they have to run in packs because that’s the only way anyone will pay attention to them.

Over the years, I’ve listened to a lot of stupidity coming out of southern California from these sorry excuses for males.

I’m from Chicago, and trust me; someone would have lit these fools up. GD’s. Vice Lords! El Rukns. Call somebody a Nigger here! It’s not tolerated. Straight up! Your house or your car would have got blown up! Folks would have started disappearing.And talk about someone’s mama in the manner you did here; the FBI would have to call in forensic experts to locate your remains. TOO BLACK!  TOO STRONG!

No one is afraid of Mexicans in this part of the country. Chi-Town is the home of REAL GANGSTERS!  Not some fake ass, wannabe’s, saggin’ pant wearin, locos with too much time and attitude on their hands. You’re only tough in front of the camera.

And I dare these Mexican bastards to take their asses to the East Coast. They’ll find out quick how people feel about them.

All the while, trying to act like Black men–emulating the speech, voice patterns, swag, attitude, et al.    “Trying to rap in Spanish.”  Hilarious at best.  All these years, and not one  Chicano has blown up.  Why?  Still yet, calling the people you imitate the  most, Niggers.  Right…As an aside: I’ve never seen a Black man in my life wearing a Sombrero.  So much for cultural appropriation.  Earth to Vatos: Rap was created by AFRICAN AMERICAN/JAMAICANS on Sedgwick and Caldwell in the Bronx not in Tijuana.  As we’ve created most everything that people like you try to imitate. But you’re not US. You have no style, intellect or purpose!  

WE are the ORIGINAL PEOPLE of this planet.  Treating us like we’re your trash and don’t belong here?  Our blood, sweat, and tears built this country! The nerve!  Let’s be real…not one of you would go head up with a AFRICAN god-man by yourself.  You’re just a bunch of losers who probably have spent most of your lives in prison or the ghetto and can’t relate to anything that doesn’t rhyme with taco.

“Dark Nigger”? There are Black people in Mexico. Guess these fools don’t know their own history. No one has tolerance for people who are mostly on welfare, selling drugs, guns, women, and killing their own people, yet acting as if none of that matters.

People who have self-respect don’t need to insult others.

I dare these cretins to take their circus act on the road and see what happens.

They want to start a race war. Let’s GO! If Donald Trump has his way, you’ll have to travel to Mexicao to get a burrito.

Mexico is across the border–take your asses back there!

Men in their 40’s and 50’s talking like juveniles! What grand examples for the little Mexican boys and oh! Their sons!

My condolences to the Mexican community.

Sorry, I don’t believe any of what they say.

Real impressive!

It’s about to be REVIVED!  The revolution WILL BE TELEVISED. Beyonce put up her fists! Kendrick gave it the finger!

Can’t wait to see the rebuttal.
