The game plan is transparent, tired and old.

Hey Trump your game plan is transparent,
tired and old.

You say Law and Order
You mean People of Color
are out of control but I’ll
put them back in their place.

You say Protect our History & culture
You mean people of color want to
stop glorifying men  who fought
to maintain slavery.
Not on my watch.

You say you didn’t hear them yell white power.
You mean of course I heard them say
white power. I was just confirming
to my base where I stand on the issue.

But you better look again.
Your base Is shrinking.
The Coalition of the Righteous is growing.

We’re tired of you trying to divide us
based on ethnicity and skin color.

We’re not going to stop saying
BLACK LIVES MATTER

BD0FF3BF-4DB3-4817-9F99-9EBF398ADC76

We’re not going to stop demanding
meaningful police reform that roots out bad cops and ends police brutality.

We’re not going anywhere but
come November you are.
Out of the White House because
we’re not going to give you
four more years to spread
your division and hate.

White Power? It’s 2020 right and the President is promoting white power

My political views are no secret but this is not political this is deeply personal

The President of the United States of America just proudly posted a video of Trump supporters screaming White Power.

Let me say that again the President of the United States of America just proudly posted a video of Trump supporters screaming White Power.

My United States of America!

The country my ancestors, despite being marginalized, terrorized and killed simply because of the color of their skin, have defended in war and without their contributions this country would not be nearly what it is today.

This should convince every person and I mean every single person of color to register and vote for Biden as well as any member of the GOP party who enable him and it’s now it’s at the point if you’re not a person of color and you tell me you support him or you remain silent on the issue I have to assume you too are racist.

Too many people of color have suffered
Too many people of color have been unjustly treated
Too many people of color have been terrorized and KILLED by people screaming those same words!

SILENCE IS NOT AN OPTION!

A Few Bad Men

Donald Trump we live in a world that has walls of racial inequities and injustices and those walls have to be torn down by groups like ours. Whose gonna do it you? You Mitch McConnell? We have a greater responsibility that you can possibly fathom. You fight to “Make America Great Again” and you curse Black Lives Matter. You have the luxury. You have the luxury of not experiencing what we do everyday, that Racism while seemingly invisible to you is an inherent part of American culture and our existence while grotesque, and incomprehensible, to you, is about making America live up to its promise that all people are created equal, about FINALLY MAKING AMERICA GREAT. We have neither the time, nor the inclination to explain ourselves, to a man who rises and sleeps under the freedoms of white privilege, and than questions why we demand equality! We’d rather you just said ‘thank you’, and went on your way. Otherwise We suggest you wake up and join us in the ever expanding Coalition of the Righteous and stand for equality. Either way, we don’t give a damn, what you think you makes America great.

Looters and rioters are criminals masquerading as protesters

I have said the Derek Chauvins of the world are not police officers, they are murderers masquerading as police officers.

The same can be said about the looter and rioters, doing this for their own gain, they are not protestors they are criminals masquerading as protesters.

Media coverage, some outlets more than others, have focused more on these criminals as opposed to the legitimate protesters, a coalition of the righteous, who are engaging in legitimate acts civil disobedience all around the country.

Part of this is calculated, especially on some networks. Yes by focusing on the criminal acts it leads to higher ratings but it also says to certain groups watching – See this is why we must maintain control. Why we must dominate the streets. Look at what we will descend into if we don’t.

It changes the narrative from the root cause of the protests to that of the looting. This gives those who wish ignore the economic and social injustices that precipitated this unrest the cover they are looking for to do just that, ignore it.

It also provides them with the ammunition they crave to keep us as a people divided. To stop what they fear, the coming together of white, black and brown. The coalition of the righteous.

Progressive activist DaShanne Stokes once said:
“The more we’re thrown into conflict with each other through engineered distrust, the less able we are to unite against those responsible.”

The economic and social foundation of this society is built on the marginalization of and economic and social oppression of the poor in general and people of color specifically and it won’t be until America is made to comes to the realization that it seriously take on the problem of the systematic racism that has permeated this country for four hundred years it will always run the risk of exploding as it has this week.

Fear Not Those Who Steal From The Lord

On this Pentecost Sunday let us remember that Derek Chauvin stole from George Floyd, who called out he can’t breath as he lay dying othe street, what was not his to take, the breath of God. As it is written in Job 33:4:

The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

As a people we must demand that Derek Chauvin meets his earthly justice. But as a people we must not fear him or his kind for their everlasting justice awaits them. As it is written in Matthew 10:28:

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Where racial injustice is so inherent…

A society where racial injustice is so inherent its very existence is denied by many.

Where it is frowned upon to even discuss it for fear of making some feel uncomfortable.

Where the oppressed are expected to work for change with-in a system built to subjugate them. Is a society that must be made uncomfortable by those that are oppressed.

It is a society that must be forced to deal with the deep-seated problem that is a scar on its very existence.

Until that day the injustice perpetuated on the oppressed may ebb and flow but it will never truly cast out of that society’s very heart, forever lurking around the next corner.

What I Don’t Like

I don’t like:
Seeing people getting hurt
Seeing innocent business owners watched their life’s work destroyed
Seeing a movement being marred by the actions of those who loot and riot only to enrich themselves or push the narrative in a negative direction for their own depraved political gain

I also don’t like
Open season on African-Americans
Killers who mar the good name of most police officers by masquerading as them
Racism
Bigotry

But what I don’t like most of all is a President who does not speak to America but instead hides behind twitter using the tragedy of George Floyd and the subsequent unrest it has sparked to post tweets designed to spread division hate & racism. Tweets designed to motivate his base to harken back to a time when they felt America was Great. A time when “vicious” dogs were unleashed on protesters of racial inequality. Tweets designed to try and keep him in power so he can continue to “loot” this country of its morality and enrich himself.

They Don’t Really Care About Us

He did it knowing he was being filmed but he didn’t care because he didn’t think the black man under his knee was a man but an animal.

Three accessories to murder masquerading as police officers watched and not once did one of them think I should stop this because they didn’t think the black man who couldn’t breath was a man but an animal.

They met the protesters with tear gas, mace and rubber bullets because they didn’t think they were men and women but animals.

They didn’t charge him with 1st degree murder because they don’t believe the life he took was that of a man but of an animal.

Wait…I’m wrong because a dog is an animal and they care more about a dog’s life than the lives of African Americans.

Because they don’t really care about us.

The Seeds of Anger

I’m one who believes that non-violent civil unrest is the preferred course of action but  there can be no denying that when one refuses to allow everyone to drink from the trees of equality, justice and freedom they plant the seeds of anger, resentment and revolution

I’m Tired

As an African American

I am tired of seeing this play out over and over again.

I’m tired of the apologists for police brutality.

I’m tired of African American parents having to have conversations with their children about the dangers of simply being African American.

I’m tired of being told not to get angry about it.

I’m tired of having my patriotism questioned when I do.

I’m tIred of the so called liberals who join in on the hashtags and claim to be outraged but sit in silence on the topic of race and social injustice when they get around each other.
