White America: He must have been doing something "wrong" or the police would not have shot him.
Me: Yes he was doing something "wrong." He was Breathing While Black.
Some More Thoughts...
1) He who learns, teaches.
2) You cannot stand Tall, if your Back is Bent.
3) I give less than a Tinker's damn what you think of me.
Me: What Class. What Dignity. What Integrity. What Principles. What Elegance. What Quality. What a Leader!
Observer: Are you talking about president donald trump?
Me: NO, not for this Racist president. I was thinking aloud about President Obama.
White political pundits continue to say, they "expect more from donald trump." As a Black person, donald trump is doing exactly what WE expected him to do. Being an "illegitimate" president does not make a difference.
We know, and it plays out every day, Racists who wear suits and skirts, like the Racists who wore pointy-head hoods and robes, have NO Integrity and NO principles. Racist donald trump and Racist White America are performing as advertised.
The Racist-in-Chief sends his Slave Patrols out to arrest undocumented workers while at the same time his businesses are Actively hiring undocumented workers.
When you are a Racist dealing with and insulated by other Racists on a daily basis, you can say and do anything and get away with it. This Racist White American president is showing you the insidious degree of Christian White American Racism and a Racist Lifestyle to which Christian White Americans have Easily grown accustomed.
The Struggle Continues!
1) Teachers...in addition to the varied, sundry, and ridiculous things they Must do as teachers, have the added task of answering awkward questions from their students, about the even more awkward (and then some) president of the United States; and
2) My grandmother told me as a youngster, "Baby, you are known by the company you keep." If she were still with me today, I would love to ask her what that says about donald trump.
The Struggle Continues!
Racist and Racism are not comfortable words, nor should they be. They both describe the reality of America's existence.
While purporting to be a Christian country, America has shown it is anything but. White Christian America has taken my Melanin, which gives me my Black hue of skin, to somehow mean I am inferior. Then White America deny and ignore the factual knowledge that the Greatest Civilizations in the history of Mankind were on the continent of Africa, a continent with many countries of Melanin people. EVERY civilization "borrowed" or "stole" knowledge +, from African countries.
Memo...Egypt is not now, nor was Egypt ever in Europe.
I tire of White America and the White Media cringing when Racist and Racism are used. Blacks did not create the circumstances that those words describe, White America Did!
The Struggle Continues!
MEMO AGAIN to the White Media and specifically Kasie Hunt (who was sitting in for the awful Chuck Todd on Meet The Press Daily on MSNBC)...
Kasie, Stop expecting ALL White Democratic candidates for President to call out donald trump as a Racist, as ALL Black Democratic candidates have done. Because Amy Klobuchar cannot call donald trump a Racist as Kamala Harris and Cory Booker have, does not mean donald trump is not a Racist. He is. Maybe you need, some kind of “White folks’ validation” to say the word, I don’t.
Let's face it, I don't care how socially and politically liberal or progressive you purport to be as a White American, you do not, and you cannot, see Racism and Racists as Blacks do. Zerlina Maxwell, Black, Professional News person,and who was a guest analyst on the show, sufficiently explained Racism and Racists and White Supremacy for you and any other White person who wanted to know. And she called donald trump a Racist.You apparently have problems wrapping your arms around that word and its description. Maybe it was significant that you were sitting in for the awful Chuck Todd today, since he cannot bring himself to say the words either.
Let me leave you with these words Kasie, from Tim Wise, White (like you), Anti-Racist (not like you) speaker, author, and anti-racism activist, who said,
1) “Societal Racism is rooted in both White privilege and a failure to understand that the system is rigged against most people by ‘rich white men telling not-rich white people that their enemies are black and brown.’
2) “If you want to know if Racism is a problem in the country, do not ask White People.”
The Struggle Continues.
THE RACIST president OF THE UNITED STATES:
called Black and Brown Countries, shithole countries;
He called Black athletes "sons-of-bitches;"
He told Black members of Congress to Go Back Where They Came from;
He called Black members of Congress "dumb;"
He insulted Black female reporters;
He questioned the leadership of Rev. Al Sharpton;
He questioned and is questioning the leadership of Congressman Elijah Cummings, while adding Congressman’s Cummings' Congressional District (mostly Baltimore, MD) is “crime riddled” and “pest infected.”
Just a small snapshot of this Reprehensible and Repugnant and Leadership Skills Challenged Racist.
Then, in walks, a delegation of Negro preachers somehow feeling it is their duty to ride to the rescue of this Degenerate Racist president called donald trump. Their meeting with donald trump is an insult to Blacks in this country, and shows just how far some Blacks will go to reap the "prosperity" of kissing a Racist's behind. During the days of the Civil Rights Movement, the Black community was not monolithic--it still is not---but the Black community then, knew the enemy, including those Blacks who sought to ride interference, for their White Straw Bosses.
One of the true unsung heroes of the Civil Rights Movement was Edgar Daniel Nixon (President of the Montgomery, Alabama Branch of the NAACP, and the President of the Montgomery, Alabama Chapter of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, and the coordinator of the Montgomery Alabama Bus Boycott), who gave this reason for asking Rev Martin Luther King, a "new-in-town" preacher, to head the Montgomery Improvement Association and the pending Montgomery Alabama bus boycott, "ALL of the other Black preachers in Montgomery are tainted by the White Power Structure." They were sellouts then. Some things never change.
Many Black preachers are still sellouts, as they epitomize the House Nigger Syndrome... scramble to show their unyielding support for this maniacal Vile Racist...while repudiating those who look like them...because they ARE calling out the Racist called trump. Blacks community types, and Black preachers who sell-out, are not new, and that includes Jacksonville, Fl.
One might ask, why do you continue to Fight? You fight because it is White American Racism. You Fight because doing nothing is not an option. However, many times, you Fight Bible Thumping-Handkerchief Head-Pulpit Pimping-Integrity Challenged-Bent Back Negroes, FIRST.

My First Great Grand, Great Granddaughter Everly Ann, was born Friday, July 19, 2019, at 6:46 pm...and as you can see, she is Beautiful. I already have the Great Granddaddy talk down pat. Everly Ann weighed in at 8 pounds 1 ounce, and a height of 20 inches...the Granddaughter of Danita Hurst and Rodney Hurst II, and the Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kyle (Marquiette) Dorrell. Mom and Dad are doing fine.
Life compels you to put several things in perspective with a birth, even when you are sorrowful at a friend’s recent death. The Celebration and the Sorrow. The Bitter with the Sweet. The Beauty of the Rising Sun and the Solemnity of the Sunset.
As I was driving to the hospital to see my Exquisite Great Granddaughter, I thought of my wife Ann, and shed some tears that she was not here to share this moment with me. And almost immediately, I remembered my Granddaughter Marquiette (Mar-Kita), Everly Ann’s mother, who always wears a butterfly pin in remembrance of her grandmother. She was, in effect, with me.
Life is to be celebrated...the New life coming to Make a Difference...and the Older life which Made a Difference.
I Welcome you to Life, Adorable Miss Everly Ann...and the Spirit of your Great Grandmother Ann, from whom you get your middle name, also Welcomes You.
Since 1619, after being kidnapped from Africa, Blacks have had to fight this Christian country FOR the barest of Respect, while also fighting the Pathological Racist Hatred and the Ignorance of Disrespectful Whites, directed at them, purely based on their Black hue of skin.
And 400 years later, White America brazenly embraces a White Racist president...while wallowing in his Cowardly and Ignorant daily diatribe ...dripping with the vile venom of inhumaneness and evil...and yet, White America has the Unmitigated gall ...the Reprehensible nerve...to accuse Blacks of playing the Race Card?
We Aren't Playing...and Racism is Not a Game.

SOME RACIST REPUBLICANTS ARE FEIGNING THEY ARE UPSET, especially the Racist-in-chief’s little Twit White House adviser, Stephen Miller, because some people including me, call the Abominable Facilities at the Border, Concentration camps. Their fake concern and anger is intended to imply by calling them Concentration Camps, people who use that label are callously disrespecting the Jewish Concentration camps, and the millions of Jewish deaths during World War II.
What’s in a Name? Try this... Slavery was a series of Longstanding Christian Concentration Camps where tens of millions of my descendants died, killed by you, White America and your European counterparts. Tens of millions of Black deaths during Slavery--America’s “legal” Concentration Camps are never mentioned--by you, in classrooms, in history books, nowhere. Black deaths were of little consequence, then as now, because YOU, Racist White America, determine the value of Black lives, even dead Black lives.
Just a reminder...Racist American Christianity generally, Racist American Christian Institutions and Racist White Christian Churches specifically, wholeheartedly endorsed and supported the legal "American Christian Concentration Camp" which you called Slavery...you know the Christian ethics of a White human being, owning a Black human being, which you called a "piece of property.”
I guess using your condescending and insidious Ignorant Racist Republicant logic, I should be Angry as Hell, since you never apologized for the "Concentration Camps," where you kept my ancestors in chains on their legs, on their hands, and around their necks. Other countries did apologize for their inhumanity...for the Jewish Concentration camps, and paid Reparations for their inhumaneness, and America, who put Japanese Americans in Internment Camps...Yep, Concentration Camps, by another name, during World War II....apologized and paid Reparations to the Japanese.
Not only have you refused to apologize for your legal “Concentration Camps” called Slavery, but you think paying Black Americans Reparations...as a descendants of the millions you kept in chains in the American Concentration Camps, while you worked them for hundreds of years for free, is a joke.
Your Twisted and Repugnant Racist Logic means Concentration camps are called something different when they hold Black and Brown people captive, but we know better, because WE know YOU.
The Struggle Continues.
RACISTS ARE MORE THAN PREDICTABLE, and they are as cowardly as they come. It goes without saying that donald trump is a Racist coward and a Racist bully who hides behind his White skin and the presidency of the United States. When he spouts his Racist limited vocabulary from his equally limited Racist Lexicon, he relishes the initial spotlight he receives; which is one of the benefits of White Privilege. Then, when his sh*t gets his uncouth behind in a bind, then his White Privilege outrage prompts him to say, “Are you going to believe your lying eyes and ears, or are you going to believe me?”
Over the last few years, the press has given this cretin president a pass. His Racist language and his Racist diatribe have been treated as a ho-hum affair with the media. So-called White Christian Evangelicals, who are nothing more than Racists wrapped in the Christian cross and the Bible, just fell at his feet. The reason you ask? They Liked the Racist diatribe oozing from his Racist lips.
In addition to the White Christians, you have the White “others” who are damned and determined to support and defend this Ignorance in the White House, come “Hell or High water.” Then, you have the Black others, who are too dumb and stupid and ignorant to realize when someone is kicking them in their Blessed Ass-urances every day, while allowing their Integrity—if they have any left—to be used as a door mat.
This proven and documented circumstance of donald trump being America’s poster boy for Racism, and the latest example of his core Racist attitudes directed at 4 Black and Brown members of Congress, means there is nothing for trump supporters to remotely hide behind. If you support the Racist donald trump, you are a Racist and you are supporting a Full-Throated Racist. There is no equivocation.
America is a Racist country, founded on Racist Christian ideals and Racist Christian ethics. donald trump simply plugged into the lava-like stream of America’s Original Sin. When you use the terms “chattel and property” to describe Black enslaved human beings from the days of the founding of this country, which was wholeheartedly supported by the White Christian Church, then that is all you need to know about America’s History. Again, America's Original Sin.
White Christian America is at another of the myriad of Right and Wrong crossroads it has faced. After failing many equality tests before, as it did in 2016, I am betting White Christian America still will not get it right when the opportunity presents itself in 2020. White America loves its Racism, its White Privilege, and certainly loves THEIR Racist in the White House.
The Struggle Continues.
