What are you gonna do when the check, is not in the mail?


What are you going to do next?

What is the next thing on your agenda?

The government and states are going to stop funding social and public welfare programs, so whats your plan?

See pretty soon the people who are depending on food stamps, section 8, childcare assistance, and any social welfare program are going to be s.o.l. (shit outta luck) because the people in the middle class are tired of paying for the poor to live better than they do!

The generations of people who have lived in public housing projects as long as they can remember back in their memory are disappearing. But not because the people have decided to finally pull themselves up from the bottom, instead it is because the cities are recognizing there are opportunities for profit in the areas which these housing projects are occupying space. Whether is the  gentrification efforts and example of say Brooklyn and Harlem, or the fact the projects are down town and stifle income that could be coming from high-end buyers like in Home town of Louisville, Ky. The  housing projects are coming down! When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans they kicked people out the projects that hadn’t even been hit by the storm or flooding, and some 8 years later they are still empty.

Every year states do more cutting to social welfare projects, and quality of life projects are being underfunded  The government has waged a war on any assistance for any of the programs and it is not just the Tea Party candidates that support the non-funding it is the traditional GOP candidates, as well as a small majority of Democratic politicians that have mixed districts that are tired of their tax dollars going to the poor and lower-income communities and never returning to their own districts. The time of the person getting on public assistance and staying there in that same financial state is over!

See I know I sound like the boy who cried wolf, but I am seeing it more and more everyday. From a perspective of a man and father who pays his own bills, taxes and buys my own groceries and pay my own rent. Also the people I associate with are doing the same as well. We are getting pissed off, and tired of supporting the people who choose not to work hard and limit themselves to just enough productivity so things don’t get hard on them.

We are tired of the fact we go to the mall and see them there, buying all the Jordan’s, buying all the Coach, and Dooney bags. They wear the finest clothing articles they can, because they have no idea that they are just walking “I am on welfare bill boards” because their children are bad as hell and unkempt even though they have on name brands they aren’t even taking care of. The looks on their faces as they pass the Gap Store, and Banana Republic store because their clothes are too tight, and make them look like they are trying to be like white people.They congregate in the food court to eat California Pizza Company, and Panera, while their children scope and go around collecting bourbon chicken from the Chinese people and free chicken samples from Chik-Fil-A. When it is all said and done they all pile into a pretty nice looking car and drive back to the projects, or the rent adjusted apartment or housing areas they live in. And of course there are those who still sit at the bus stop with all their children to catch the bus with Macy’s, Dillard’s,Finish Line,and Footlocker bags.

Not to mention when we the hard-working tax paying citizens, go to the grocery store we are tired of seeing the people there with 2 and 3 carts full of food purchasing everything we would like to eat but can’t even afford to buy. Their baskets are filled at will, with no real thought of price. The grocery isn’t really making more than they previous did, because the food manufacturer is reaping the benefits, because they just inflate their prices. The food stamp recipient is giving the store and the manufacturer the bulk of their profits, and since food stamps are free from the government the recipients are complaining about having to spend a little more than they did the last week. So basically what we have is a situation where the stores and he food manufacturer have a contract with the government.

Now when it comes to any of the programs that are offered by the states such as child care assistance, the states just simply can’t afford it! Period! That is when they have to come to the tax payer hat in hand and we are saying NO! Because we have to pay full price for day care, and schooling. The rates are so absorbent that it cost more than some people’s mortgages and car payments for the month! Which are fostered because the government has been offering so much assistance, the facilities are guaranteed payment so they can charge what ever they feel! So there you go another situation where the private business is depending on the government to basically pay its bills. In doing so it hurts the regular everyday American just trying to make it!

Now I know what I am saying hear sounds harsh and insensitive, and I want it to! I have been on public assistance in my life time off and on, as a child and even messed with some women who schemed it as an adult. The major reason I am not on it now though is because of PRIDE! I was raised with it, my mother only used public assistance when it had gotten so bad we needed too, and once our rough patch was over she got off it. She told the truth about her wages, and how much she and my father was making, it was a sense of pride that we didn’t have to be on food stamps and public housing. Even though life was hard and I didn’t have much or anything I may have wanted, I always knew I was going to have what I needed. She depended on God and herself, not even my father too much just to make sure there were no disappointments. “Pull yourself up, by your bootstraps!” & “Only person you can depend on is you!” Are 2 of here favorite sayings! All though life was not perfect, we were never dirty, beaten, or battered! With that said yes you might have on some thrift store clothes, shoes from the Salvation Army store, and a coat from the DAV (Disabled Veterans Store)store, It was going to be clean, and so was you!

That is what is missing from life now, that need to be proud of who you are and the sense of supporting yourself. So what you may have to eat hot dogs and pork and beans, or you may have to pass on the lunch with friends, because you just aint got it, but at least you know your not begging, or being taken care of by everybody else. To settle for welfare and just stay stuck is pathetic and immature! Yes, I know you say “well I am going to school!” but whats next? Your schooling should be over in a max of 4 years, now you gonna get a job, you ain’t worked in 4 years, plus if you in school and not working why do you need so much day care and food stamps? Be responsible stop having all these children  by these men who can’t and/or aren’t going to help you raise them! Doesn’t the child that is being born deserve at least that much?

In closing all I am saying is pretty soon the free ride is going to come to an end at the station because there is no way America can continue this way. The next civil war is going to be a war of class, not race. The government is going to side with those that bring the most to the table, not the people who are always sitting there eating off it!


The Anatomy of Communication in a Relationship!

The main issue is the lack of communication! It is a skill that people in relationships lack all over the country, but I feel like it is especially an issue in the lower financial class, and under educated households.  Communication is a natural and nurtured reaction and skill. I say it is both nature and nurture driven because yes some people are just great communicators, but the way they choose to communicate is just as important as the act itself.

In a lot of relationships both sides bring baggage and the lack of effective communication is 1 big suitcase that people lay on their mate’s emotional floor! Plus if a person has not seen an effective relationship where communication is vibrant, successful, respectful, and integral then they are most likely to bring that broken style of communication into their relationship as well. The faults of cheating and revenge, and spite are all acted out in most cases because people refuse to just admit they have made mistakes, or feel a certain way about the transgressions of their mate, yet they don’t know how to tell them verbally, so they act out instead.

A simple talk about financial stress and feelings of not want and abandon can be resolved by both parties sitting down and discussing the when’s and why’s of their relationship saving them from committing crimes of the heart against the other person, because they are to filled with the anxiety, embarrassment, and fear they are filled with when they think of just talking about their feelings. This issue is not just a man’s problem; it is a sickness and disease both sexes have.

Men call it pride and foolish terms such as “me being me”, and “this is what men do” when they are explaining their childish behavior, and their inability to talk and effectively communicate their feelings. Mainly because they weren’t shown an image of a man even doing that for a fear he would be conceived as weak or gay!

Women on the other hand have no issue with discussing their emotions and issues with their friends, family, and strangers, but when it comes to their mate they clam up on the true important matters and focus on trivial things that the man has no idea of why it even matters!  Which cause a void of trust and faith and opens the door for lies and deception on both part, yet their mothers and girlfriends will know the whole scoop! Their childish behavior is brought on by a fear of being alone, and missing out on “a good thing” because if they just show a man the image they think the man thinks he wants to see, then he will never leave them. Even though we all know this is false.

Honest and truthful communication a clean slate and realizing not all issues have resolutions that are prevalent and immediate, but if the issues are on the table then they can be worked on and ironed out between both parties, as long as they are committed to doing so and bringing all issues to the fore front can only relive stress, and avoid ignorant and permanent damage effecting all sides of people physically and emotionally!  It will also break the mold of ineffective communication for your children because they will see how adults are supposed to handle life amongst each other, and in business dealings as well. Effective and decisive communication builds confidence and integrity in people, and also shows a person’s worth in way that is immeasurable.

Tupac the missing link between Martin Luther King and true social equality

Tupac Shakur’s image and vision of his “Thug Life” mentality, was not the perverted and massively distorted vision and oxymoron  that Bob Dole and Dolores Tucker made it to be instead he was really reaching out too and talking to the single parent home, the hungry, the under and uneducated, unemployed, the downtrodden, and the forgotten American whether he/she be black, white, or brown!  Unfortunately his image and legacy is one consumed by ignorant and confused people who only saw the raw un-molded, uncut, confused and mislead young man who was actually the Next evolutionary figure in the battle for Civil Rights!

His aim was too picked up where his mother and other Black Panther leaders left, his message delivery was just, as if not more powerful than the quiet and peaceful marches and respectable manners for which Martin won our freedom as a race, but where Tupac differed is he didn’t have the respect, honor, and social acceptance as Martin eventually earned.

Instead it was a brash, young angry, and uncontrolled message that couldn’t be caged his fury and power wasn’t like that of Garvey and Malcolm X who both led with honor, dignity, and control. Instead Tupac’s audience had no guidelines or outline for success they had no road map to change they just knew where they was, and where they didn’t want to be. Tupac’s guidance was too influenced by the street life he saw, and also by the street life that the record producers, and record companies wanted to make sure got across because it was making money!

So instead of the millions listening to his message of revolution against the white people, and the Government his message came across like he was saying revolt against anyone that has more than you, including each other! Unfortunately that’s where it all went downhill, because the ignorance and laziness of poor people, along with the guile and sneaky intelligence of the Jews and other foreign music and movie companies he was guided to put a cage on his real message and make music that these fools and women wanted to listen to!

The reason I call Tupac the “bridge” is because Martin’s no violence and peaceful message had done all it could do for the African! Once the South was assumed to be “free” and Jim Crow was publicly outlawed, (though we know some still kept it as law) the fight for Martin was moved to the North were many of the blacks fled whether it be Oakland California, or Chicago Martin realized his job was still incomplete!

As Martin came into these new places were blacks were now living amongst the secret code of Jim Crow aka “James Crow”  he wasn’t being ran out-of-town or locked up by the local sheriff. No see they had a better smarter, craftier way to deal with him, they instead welcomed him to their city. Because they witnessed how being violent didn’t work in the South it only created a picture that displayed blacks as the victim and the  oppressor was the White man, well these images and characteristics would only deliver sympathy and rouse some of the soft white people’s heart-strings to feel a guilt for the black mans situation!

A bigger enemy to the black mans survival in the North was also present The Immigrant! The immigrant all though he wasn’t American and didn’t lift a hand to build America like the Africans did with their blood, sweat, and tears, they mostly fit in because they looked the same as Americans, they were white! Since this was the norm for them their only discrimination’s came down to each other and it was mostly religion based.  The immigrant was already in the North working the good jobs in manufacturing and processing and the black just had to take the customary low wage and fill in for strike pay type of jobs. The major issue here is the immigrant didn’t have the same white guilt the American white had for the Negro considering they were already considered to be better than the black when they stepped off the boat. They were able to form unions and they owned neighborhoods and communities they were the policemen and secretaries, the firefighters, and the lawyers, judges, and prosecutors by the time the black man got up north they even had the crime market on lock.

These were the rules and the way of life. With this already being set as the standards on how cities were going to be ran the politicians which came from these immigrant homes and communities didn’t have to worry about fighting Martin L. King and his black marchers being an issue or a real impact because they knew the old style communities would fight the battle for them.  See what I am saying is the no violence approach to civil rights wasn’t and didn’t work in the North because in many cases the white skinned, and olive-skinned people in the north weren’t the same white people who brought Negros from Africa on boats and whipped and made us slaves. No these fair complected people have no connection with blacks and only know that they can dance, and sing but besides their strong back and refusal to fight back for their own rights they felt as if they were better than them from the beginning. See the plight to America from a foreigner’s point of view was a new chance on life, freedom religious, and other wise they had fought in their own civil wars in their homeland and new that America could be a new way to fortune and a great place for their children and their children’s children to grow up and live great dominate lives.  In this reality of differences is where I think was the Jewish, Polish, Italian, Scottish, Irish, and German immigrants major trifle and therefore argument with the African-American.

I think they saw a weakness and laziness in the fact that this whole nation of Africans had allowed themselves to be slaves and allowed their children to be enslaved as well. The bigger fact and more evident product of slavery isn’t the physical aspect of it, it is the mental slavery in which my beautiful race still allows itself to hold it hostage! We haven’t broken the mental constraints of stepping out on our own, trusting and believing in each other, and putting ourselves first before anyone else!

This was more a of a brain dump for me at times it was all over the place and times it hit dead on, check it out and tell me where it guided your thoughts!

How is your Union, really protecting you?

Verizon workers go on strike! Verizon makes a lot of money every year right? The latter statement is more important than the first statement, because the strikers are “land line” service workers a Unionized job, which is a prehistoric service that has lost its viability!

On the other hand the service Verizon is eating and getting fat from is its wireless service, which isn’t Unionized!
The workers in the land line division are suffering from 1 sickness it is called “spoiled employee syndrome!” Unfortunately they don’t realize they are not a viable investment anymore, I say “they” because even though they are physically telephone lines, they are the only unnecessary part of the process! Verizon is the #2 Worlds largest mobile phone provider, that work force isn’t represented by an Union, so they have a better opportunity to treat their employees in that division how they want to.

It is the Union’s job to acquire the best possible wages and working conditions possible for the Union worker, but when the Union worker is costing the company more than the Union worker is producing, because the Union worker’s product is inept, and out dated then what are both sides to do? On Verizon’s side they could continue to pull profits from the wireless workers production and keep the wire line employees happy! On the flip side, Verizon’s wireless operation isn’t Unionized by design, not accident!

It actually would have been a mistake if Verizon would have allowed Unions in their wireless division, because they would be stuck, in the precarious situation they are in now with the land line division, which is what are we going to do when your not profitable anymore?

As a Union Stewart I don’t want to represent an employee that doesn’t pay Union dues, but I have too if he/she asks to be represented. At the same time I don’t feel like it is right for Union workers to force a company’s hand by striking, when the consessions the company is asking them to make are actually understandable.

Verizon is asking for the employee to go to 5 sick days a year, take up more of the slack for their healthcare, accept pension freezes in exchange for a more aggressive 401 retirement package these 3 things are some important issues, but the 1 thing these 45,000 Verizon employees striking aren’t thinking about is, land line phone is extinct!

With VOiP, and cellular phones alone not to mention your free Skype, and Google phone options many people are “cutting” the cord of land lines! Who is really at fault here? In my opinion it is the Union! They have lost the chance to educate and really smack their employees back to reality!
Those 45,000 jobs can and will look really good to temp workers, International workers, and staffing agencies, that aren’t going to demand any benefits, or retirement options! In this case it was and is the Unions job to show the employee just where they stand and how they really don’t have fight in this situation! Verizon even bargaining with the employees is an admonishment, because they actually can show where the employees aren’t worth the money and benefits they have come accustom to having!

The Union was suppose to be the parent of the 45,000 Verizon land line employees, a mother/father figure teaching them that unfortunately everything doesn’t always turn out the way you want it too, but at this point you really can’t expect to continue to receive “Cadillac” benefits, for a “AMC” type of job!

The CWA is responsible for what’s best for its members, and sometimes that includes telling the members, this is the best deal we have and we are going to get, once you compare the members value vs Verizon’s cost! In this case, The CWA should have made the membership understand this ain’t 1989, and the wireless division of Verizon really doesn’t owe them anything!

The Big Black Truth

The reason I posted this is because black peole have got to open their eyes and see the truth! Compare the numbers of black prosperity during the Bush years vs Obama’s years! Yes this is just his 2nd year in the White House, but he was given a broken egg, a mountain of clay that was his to mold, what did he do? He continued down the road that crippled America to begin with! He satisfied some with “Cash for Clunkers”, he gave us a temporary “Home Buyers Credit”, and he also put in place an extra $812 in your yealy take home those were temporary! He promised to end the Iraq War which he has since renigged on prefering to wage a War in Afghnistan and patronize the monetary needs and demands of a Nuclear Pakistan for which he refuses to enter talks that could replace its presidency and denuclearize the country, he bailed out the banks with tough rhetoric and no back bone, he created a Wall Street that manipulates the Market in the same way it did previously that caused the housing market problem from the beginning, by proposing new laws designed to govern and regulate it with out any teeth basically turning it into an informational document for the American to read!

Healthcare was a farce from the beginning with no real intent on a “public option” for Americans he really only wanted Americans to fall in line because he knew that by covering sick and previously denied ill patients he can help bankrupt America as well as the insurance companies may have to cover you, but they can also charge what ever ridiculous fees and deductibles they see fit which is still a win/win for them!

Back to the $812 additional dollars he put in your pocket, he subtracted about $30 – $40 of that back by signing to extend the Bush error tax cuts, and also hurting you in the long run because your social security %6 to %4 is going to mess a lot of people up later on in life, some sooner than later! As well as without ending tax cuts he is extending the period of smaller tax income therefore furthering a defict in our country and compiled an extesion of unemployment benefits! Which is an act that will keep people unemployed, for the most part they will be those that are the uninspired and undetermined that do the back breaking and undesired work, it will go to the immigrant and get outsourced as well, leading us back into a nonproductive period that will cause decades of negative results for millions of Americans. By the way go read the Obama tax plans, tell how you like those apples especially if your a married couple.

His relentless actions by employing the Bernankes, Summers, the Gietners, and Dailys are continued measures that he isn’t about change for the good he is all about the continued unrest and unequality that has America in the position it is now! I know what you are going to say next what about his efforts to extend higher education? To that I say this 1 of Americas biggest problems right now is the flooding of over educted people and the fact is that there is now a college on every corner! So if you didn’t take an ACT or SAT and you don’t want to learn about all the stuff that targeted on your desires and career come ABC University, we understand your needs! Bull hockey, the traditional Universities and Liberal Arts Colleges are having to raise its cost because so many people are going to these fly by night schools and getting half ass degrees that aren’t fully equiping them for the whole job, but employers are hiring these people because they will take less than a student that went to a traditional 4 or 6 year institution of higher learning! When that scientist, engineer, chemist, journalist, lawyer, etc graduates they see they have to accept less than Sally Sue that used her scool money and went to “Happy Easy Time University”, but when the head to head performance comes out the proof is in the pudding the correctly and upper educated worker is usually held onto despite the minor pay difference and yet another “educated” person joins the ranks of the unemployed!

I contend that instead of pumping money into our adults going to college and older house moms and dads we pump our money into our communities where we can save and improve the quality of real education for young students K – 12 because if given the proper seeds of encouragement and education up to scale and quality clooege will be a destination not an option! Only then can you garuntee that the child will know how important an education really is it has too be placed in their subliminal mindset, and the younger the better, because Online training isn’t hands on skill learning! A computer can never give someone the same type of quality education a classroom enviroment offers! But the quality of the classroom enviroment has to be a strong 1 from the beginning starting at the Kindergarten level and continuing throughout highschool so the sheer size of college and the work load doesn’t destroy a person mentaly before they even get started it should entice them to want to conquer it instead! The only way to encourage that type of attitude and focus on education and the work ethic it takes to get there is by starting when you have the best oppurtunity “in the beginning” yeah it is going to takes some outreach into family homes, it is going to take some feedings, and clothings, and outreach but that is the beautiful thing about America and The American spirit it can be done!

Those are and were the roots of his campaing the man who gave up the big firms to work in communites becoming one with regular people helping societies lowest to achieve great things, but where is that candidate? What happened to the “Yes we can!” Candidate that was about change and holding his ground against the backroom dealings, and closed door meetings and porkbelly wastefull war time actions that was ruining our country? Remember his allegiance to the poor and unrepresented the person next door, the everyday American, I belive he has forgotten that, he has forgotten that we have to put money in our pocket so we can place food on the table, in order for our kids to get the “free” education they deserve as Americans our Communities need his help!

Pay our teachers more make it a target job instead of a dreadful one, they need to know that. Public Education is a Business that is too big to fail and their bailout is coming! Look into family matters and the court system help fathers that are doing the right things by their children, in child support, increase programs that can help keep some of these families together, instead of allowing them to fail! Go after those men who hide behind unemployment and lazy local governments that aren’t paying child support, along with the mothers who are abusing the goverment for their funds and hurting the middle class families that are doing it the right way!

Create a jobs training programs that include the basic building blocks and foundation of the working force with construction, general labor skills, and capentary skills allowing them to take back a field of employment that has benn taken over by the immigrant leagal/illegal!
When our telecommunications companies and technological companies look for workers they shouldn’t have to revert to outsourcing and hiring people from other companies, our American students should be getting equipted for these jobs early, not just when in college! Give more benefits for companies willing to stay in America, charge higher taxes to companies who’s base is in other countries say like Toyota, Honda, Mercedes, BMW for example, charge them for us having to import their vehicles and parts to our country instead of opening manufactoring plants (besides the few plants) here that can make those parts for their vehicles! If they try and pull out of America inform them the import tax will be levied on their products that it will be almost impossible for us to afford them! We need an Amrican President that is going to make America work for Americans, the whole America not just the top 2 – 6%! Yes I am including some of the richest people thzt don’t show up on the list those that hide their money offseas those Obama also said he was going to bring to justice and didn’t pursue once he got into office!

Last but not least, on the crime situation crime is something we are always going to have, it is just a rule of life! Drugs and drug violence doesn’t have to be as bad as it is though, through community outreach and retooling and reapproaching the situation, we can build and man more rehabilitation facilities and empower and educate from within the community, that can cleanse itself of the drug and violence, if you get rid of the consumer then there isn’t a markegt for your product! The nature and needs of the drug abuser has got to changed and addressed, don’t get me wrong there will be drug abuse, and some violence with it, but when it can be curtailed so it isn’t hyptnotising and brain washing whole communities of poor and downtrotten people that can’t see if they put the distractions down, and faced reality that their own lives could be saved by and with each other! That is going to take a mass change in or laws and law enforcement! That’s where Obama can lead and start the conversation to get those changes made! Please chime in, and leave your response whether you agree or disagree! Add your own ideas and thoughts!

Hipocratic Society

I mean people seem to think that a stint in the jail house is some sort of restitution or real quality punishment for a crime! Look as you and I both know once a “crime” is commited it reaches well beyond the criminal and the victim and thats on both sides some people put more thought into thier choice of shoes than they do on whether or not too commit a crime and if they are caught then that is a self imposed black eye didn’t anybody do it to them, and if your in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the wrong people choose your friends better! The real issue here is the same as with many of the nations new issues alot of people don’t care about things until it affects them for years plenty of people ahve been against drugs, drinking, homosexuality, abortion, etc… but the difference is now thier kids, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, aunts and uncles are those very people they have such distane for previously and now their thoughts  and feelings have changed and they start making excuses for the same people because its thier son, or daughter, etc… thats what cracks me up is the hipocratic attitude we have adopted as Americans.

Exactly! The fear that working for your self and building yourself up alot of politicians mostly Dems place in advertisments and on speeches and they always put the dirty little black children out there for dispaly and they use the worst examples of people instead of asking the working poor and mid income people who “make too much” for assistance but at the same time they are the ones actually struggling! Day care, groceries, bills, rent/mortgage, no help from anyone besides an occasional church program or family member thats just as poor, but be lazy or work just enough and the goverment handouts are plenty and abundant; its a shamockery state of situations the way your treated for being independent and standing up proudly! Blacks have had a me first attitude since the master whipped the biggest slave to death instilling fear in the woman and the weak men so they would covet thier children and pass that type of fear onto them the fear that sticking up and speaking out would lead to your demise so acceptance of ignorance as long as a handout was there for you was to be accepted! Not until WWI did blacks really realize that there was a way out of the South and they could and did deserve more but where they failed was in the lack of effort to get their brothers and sisters mothers and fathers that remained to buy into that same notion and the slave mentality although decades removed from that era still remained fresh in many peoples heads which kept them accepting those hand outs and beliving they had a friend in Mr. Bob! But the whole time they friend Mr. Bob was eating good off thier choices and they still feeding the machine that Mr. Bob created because there is a fear of what might happen if they actually tried to become great and break free of the ignorance they call reality! We as blacks used to hold our heads high that our children were orderly, and we looked decent and kept our business prrivate now look at us! Just watch television and see the bafoonery and foolish images we are betraying now, it is worse than it was during the minstrels of the south and black face Amos and Andy but the worst part is we don’t even care!


Black heroes (my anwser to a facebook question)

There is a void when we speak of leaders of today! Brittany not eberybody is on the same path of awareness that you and I have decided to for lack of a better term “GPS”, we live in a world were money has replaced many peoples desire to lead!
As I said before Jay-Z and Beyonce aren’t on the same statue as The Greats Martin, Malcolm, Evers, Garvey, etc… but on the same token Jay-Z, Beyonce, Will, Jada, Tavis, Dr. Cornell West, M.E.Dyson, etc… are who we have too depend on and make educated choices on what is valid and honorable! Louisville is a prime example of what being “stuck” is about, there is no reason for the ignorant deaths and violence to exude among our people from the West End to Newburgh! A feeling of lost, and jilted oppurtunities have encapsulated our race and communities! When all the while the lesson of personnal responsibilty is the real answer to 90% of the problems we as a people face!

Malcolm and Martin taught this basic aspect, as a life long building block! But as they were deemed to powerfull they were killed, using what I think is “The Cut the head off the snake routine”. Which really started with the assination of JFK they thought that for sure enough if they killed a President then those with similar thoughts would silence themselves, Martin wouldn’t, so then they tried running his name down in the dirt, you should read about what “BLACKS” had to say about Martin and his “Radical stances” because once they realized that he stood fro everyone, not just blacks they couldn’t pigeon hole him! So on and on he spoke out agianst sexism, racesim, immigration, and equal pay (he supported the unions) because he knew that even though you might gain some “freedom” what good does it do if you can’t pay the bills! But most of all his speeches and conversations about the Vietnam War and its condemnation is what got him killed! He wouldn’t tkae their hush money, because he knew that the drugs and guns, and funds that were being funneld back into our country was wrong and it was the Governments doing so, he didn’t understand why so many men and women of color were fighting for a country that was supporting the oppresser of the country we were invading! The Vietnam war placed the American disenfranchised and unrepresented in a position to go kill the Vietnamese that were in the same situation! So he had to go, because “what the government can’t control they destroy!”

The positive influencers that left from this era were bought, killed, jailed, and silenced! Jessie Jackson was well positioned to take the steering wheel and drive the vehicle after King was pushed out, but he chose the CASH! Abernathy landed himself in jail for 1 last time then he kinda gave up a few are in public service, as politicians and some are clergy!

Well by that time you have a situation were you have, a group of strong determined, stout, and proud people just chomping at the bit for a leader,  someone to take Martin’s lead and continue to speak out and preach equality for everyone, but no one stepped up! So now you have some people who have moved out the ghettos and burroughs of the North and South because before Martin we had a great migration from the South to the North, East, and West Coast some were educated and many were not depending on when they left the south but for decades they had been washing and cleaning for the whites and well to do’s but at the same time waiting for their chance to say hey look at my lawn and get out the poorest areas, where even though they new what they had since it was infected by blacks it wasn’t good enough, because for a bunch of them they didn’t love themselves! Sound familiar? So they left and behind them they left a young base of people some influenced by Martin, some by Malcolm, some by the drug addicted fathers that came back from Vietnam, some that just had no one at all, by this time women had hit the workplace and home wasn’t what it used to be! In communities where holding on your shoe strings and. Living check to check but to have a good time was always cheap and easy people get lost! Instead of positive black role models they were replaced with “Blackexplotation” ya “Supafly”, “Shaft”, “Dolomites”, all the while people who had followed Martin and Malcolm found new leaders and heros created by Jews and white writers played by Black men and women! Throw in some welfare, food stamps, projects, and cocaine and there you have the 80’s, 90’s, early turn of the Century black people!

But all was not lost because in communities you still had those that held onto to those basic core values and principals, teachers, educators, those entrpanuers, those who knew education was the key and they didn’t let the dynasty of Martin and Malcolm the Garvey and Tubman fighters that were white and black they called it “Black History” see not everyone could leave the ghetto, and those that stayed were not all bad and people who went astray thanks to a strong tie to the church and family!  Those were the people that raised their children not to forget where they came from so they wouldn’t be sure to repeat it! When the schools deliberatly ommitted African American studies in texgt books and denied slavery tried to act as if it never happened they fought for the truth, they fought for Black History in the classrooms and what wasn’t taught in schools was taught in homes and reinforced there by fathers and mothers hardworking individuals that belived in personal responsibility and self motivation and their children did too.

But on the flip side you had your lost and weary, your nonmotivated, lazy, slimey, low and cracked individuals that just couldn’t do right the easy street was their way to the top, some made it some didn’t. And throw in your professional athletes, and Ivy Leaguers and you have our parents generation for the most part whatever side of this coin you your family falls on you can trace it back to its source, some families who’s whole family tree dates back to the Southwick, Cotter homes, Parkhill etc untill they tore them down! Is it all their fault no, but at the end of the day you can only depend on you!

As you know crack and drugs, and urban squaller pertty much laid the ground work for our generation whether it directly affected you or not, that didn’t change the fact that you have a young and impressionable people that are just freed and opened to the “newness” of these oppurtunities their forefathers only dreamed of and died for!  It is why our jails are full of black, and latino men and women, it is the reason that States changed their laws to include align themselves with Federal agencies to attack “the problem” but more than anything they came up with new ways to distract us and keep us off balance! You name it tv, radio, news, internet, work, and church all these things are used to keep the family a broken and ununited unit, child support, is a family killer, the way they have placed a higher value on minority women and their worth more than a minority man is a family unit destroyer, the way money is used to keep you dependant on the government and the temporary benefits are family killers! The power that a stranger outside your home has to say whether you can spank your child or not is a family unit killer! Because they seen if they can kill the family, then they can kill the weak and undesirable! Well 1 of the major problems blacks have had is our willingness to fall for the lies that “our past is just that, the past” and we should leave it there! NEGATIVE, our past is the only tool we have to help us survive this present and the future!

Your feelings are Jay-Z and Beyonce don’t have anything to offer us as role models, I say this anytime a drugdealer can make it out the prohects legally flipping they dirty money to clean money, and also embrace their humble upbringings when your grand dad was a preacher, your mother a single 1, your faced with death just palying the playground, yes your life and road to success wasn’t through the doors of Harvard but I believe amuch harder door to break down, but when you make your goal is too rebuild your neighborhood, you have been to pay homage to your motherland and invested there as well with providing the basic needs of humans that we take for granted, you give clothes to the poor, because you own the company, you bring your money back to the community to create jobs by building a sports complex in your hood because you bought a sizable portion of the teams you bypass the average “have a baby, by and be a millionaire” attitude rampant by your “peers”.  When you and your wife who just happens to be black and the most successful at her game, tag team to make sure you do all you can to get the 1st black President elected (you know your hero Obama) when you single handedly turn the game around from guns and drugs to destiny and focus, from being somebody questionable to someone, respectable I have to say I can find honor in that, you know what they say you are judged by the company you keep, Oprah, Obama, Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Warren Buffet, etc… I have to say you deserve some respect!

We have to get waht we can from the people we invest in our leaders today are not as peachy keen and clean cut as our fore fathers, but that doesn’t mean they can’t or don’t have anything to offer! You have tolook beyonf the song and dance, they can’t help it they had to do what they felt was the best option to make it out the hood, and make a positve difference. And bring that success to the hood, Tiger Woods, he is no role model, but because for so long his good clean cut looks, and respectabke tone kept the white man fooled, therfore that allowed him a pass card and once whitey accepted it Blacks the accepted it! This clown denied his own race so much he went out his way to explain just how black he wasn’t hell he broke it down into percentages on our ass! He ain’t never gave shit back, or used his influence for nothing black related! “Tiger where having watermelon and fried chicken just for you at the Masters!” “Well okay Bob! Oh and don’t forget the Orange soda! Thank ya boss!” Yeah he smackedthem around the course, but he was the fool the whole time, and serves his btchass what has happened to him!  That’s the type of “Black Role model” that is being portrayed as the real positive black man and that is a LIE! They are some points and people missing I know but this is my rough draft feedback is wanted! Positive or negative!

Free Speach!

Juan Williams being fired because of his comments about Muslims was ridiculous! Juan Williams is one of the most respected actual journalists in this country! He is an exquisite author when it comes to matters of African American matters and history, his non biased although liberal it may be comments and opinions are excellent whether it be on FOX, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, etc… Juan Williams is bigger than this and NPR, but the bigger question is with the millions that George Soros and Americans in our country and the world pump into the network where are they headed? The liberal agenda is lost in a self anarchists train of thought, and by that matter where the NAACP Juan Williams is a black man who has had his civil rights taken by NPR when they fired him, by the action in firing him they tried to take his ability too make money, by taking his civil rights away by taken his freedom of speech away! He told the truth as he feels about a vile and violent people, they are violent and bring terror to any place they move any country they occupy starts to have wars because Muslims don’t want or respect anything thats different than thier beliefs! Period!

Black man’s demise, thinking he fits in!
