Are Self-Exploding Beings inwardly Imploding?


 

Are the self-exploding inwardly imploding?

Not knowing that the seeds of their self-destruction reside quietly inwardly already taking root. Ready to root out fabricated dogmas.
Boston Bomb crushed avian souls flying towards Heaven. Chaos rules the lands. Demonic Fairytale stories being lit up global TV screens.
Carnage Couture is all the rage!!

Socialites debate levels of thinness while screaming crying babies suckle on long dried up teats.

Life continues on in glass castles unfazed by human suffering. Walking Stepford skinny chic walking decorations immobilized shields of Oil dollars. One piece of glittering jewelry could feed and house one thousand lost humanities. Let us trip the light fantasies weaving around hunger, blight and destruction all the while knowing it will never touch our gleaming manors. Golden parachutes always on hand.

Mankind marches on towards dinosaur extinction by our own hands. WinTourist DashKardian superficial fantasies supplicate the masses fill the empty plates providing empty calories while Rome burns. Politics, religion unreasonable fears of contamination. Moon-Skitters thrive on cell division.

Say Their Names!! Never allow their memories to fade!!

Our decision whether, how, & when to escape the matrix.

Are the Self-Exploding inwardly Imploding? Truth, Compassion, Understanding and Victory shall win out over evil, wickedness and animosity!!  For the sacred has now become filled with the filth of the profane. An Outhouse disguised under the mantle of being a Holy Temple.

Let’s Talk About Race in Two Different Americas


This is another non-PC post dealing with racial attitudes.  If you’re white this blog post is gonna Fuck with you to the utmost. I pull no punches and make no apologies for my words.  If you don’t like it feel Free to Unsubscribe.  I don’t give a flying Fuck.

Often my colleagues of Color and I will talk about the racist comments and insults we get on a daily basis while performing our jobs as Security Officers at the museum.  One encounter by a Black co-worker who is a retired Marine Officer and who is multi-lingual especially sticks out. A white visitor told him he was an Uppity Nigger. His response, “I come from a long line of Uppity niggers and am proud of it.”  I’m sure that white patron had no answer for that one.

Basically during my tenure at the museum patrons have cursed me in every language know to mankind and called me everything but a child of God.

Now let me back track to my encounter this past week with a dumb-ass old white woman who had the nerve, gall and audacity to come up to me and compare my beautiful cornrows to a Medusa sculpture.  I was raised to respect my elders but there are times when you just want to slap the shit out of old white people whose minds are still stuck in the early 20th or 19th Centuries.  Then there are the trust fund babies and wealthy white folks of privilege who have that “To The Manor Born” attitude to most workers of Color and especially Black workers.

 

Dear Folks of the Caucasian Persuasion.  Do Not Touch my Hair. This is not a petting zoo.  Do not ask me stupid questions like, “Do you comb your hair?” Do Not compare my braids, locs or cornrows to Medusa and I won’t say anything about your wrinkles, age spots or your open audacity and stupidity to think you can come up to any random Black person that you don’t know and just spew the first idiotic thing that issues forth from that pie hole in the middle of your face. And No you Do Not have the right to become offended if I call you out on your arrogance and foolishness.  Keep your ignorant racist sexist dumb words and attitude to yourself! Don’t get it Twisted.  Mammy and StepAndFetchIt are long gone.  In fact do me a favor. Shut the Fuck Up and stop commenting on my appearance!  Don’t Fuck with the African Goddess! I am a Proud Uppity Black Woman with Attitude. Don’t you forget it.

I don’t have too many problems with other working class whites. We are more or less sailing in the same ship but if you’re Black and you commit the smallest infraction of the rules we get thrown overboard. Most of the problem lies with the 1%.  The “Beautiful People.”  The Society Matrons. The Trust Fund Babies. Tea Partiers formerly known as the “Moral Majority.”  You know them. The patrons who attempt to give you half chewed gum and candy or some sort of other garbage thinking you’re a fucking janitor. I tell them them the trash can is located in the nearest restroom.

Caucasian Americans let’s get re-educated. No I don’t look like another Black person you may know or see on TV, in the movies or in magazines.  Black people have the most diversity of skin color, hair textures, and hues than any other race on earth. Unless that particular Black person is an identical twin there goes the notion that we all Look Alike.

If you don’t know me. Don’t touch me. Keep your hands to yourself. Hey you never know. The Black might rub off!

Yes I speak proper English and not Ebonics. Sure I can lapse into slang but only around my friends. Stop saying how you’re incredibly amazed at how “articulate” I am.  That’s a back-handed compliment which is really an insult in disguise. Quit being so condescending.

No I absolutely Do Not take or sell drugs. Black does not equal drug addict.  However it is obvious that you do since you seem to know so much about illicit drugs.  No I’m not here to be your sex slave. Don’t even go there!  For I will put your sorry ass out of my galleries. If we were out in the street my foot would be up your ass! You may have gotten away with raping my Great, Great, Great Grandmother back in slavery days but today I will not only knock you silly but cut off your minuscule package and shove it down your throat.

You insult me to my face and make snide remarks behind my back. You extend your hand in supposed friendship and support, with that phony shit-eating grin while telling me “I Voted for Obama!”  Really.  Oh joy! How white of you! You know what?  I don’t want to be your friend. You would not survive a week No Not even a day in my Black skin. You need to back the Fuck up and get out of my face with your hypocrisy.  My patience is gone and Love Don’t Live Here Anymore.

You May Now Kiss My Royal Black Ass!

Hypocrisy among OWS?


On the surface OWS started off well then got completely out of hand. The 1st amendment does allow free speech, freedom to assemble and to protest but not to just live in a public or private park and create chaos for the surrounding neighborhood.

Some of my co-workers are participating in the OWS movement and I’m sure they have good intentions but they are being misled. Despite OWS attempts to stop the gropers, rapists, thieves and other nutcases it was getting out of hand.  It became so dangerous for the women occupiers that a special tent for only women had to be set up along with patrols to protect the women.

There is an attempt to compare OWS to the Civil Rights movement. As we all well know there is no comparison. Dr. King may not have every last detail of the protests and sit-ins planned out perfectly but at least MLK & even the Black Panthers had an organized game plan which they followed.The marches and sit-ins all had a purpose and a goal.

Also I can’t help but think that OWS and the Tea Party are two sides of the same coin. The Tea Party has “Oreo” Herman Cain as their token black face and OWS has almost no people of color in its ranks or among their so-called organizers.

When white people find themselves in a jam all of a sudden they “need” us to jump on their bandwagon. Suddenly we are all Americans. WTF!! Then once the economy rights itself and the status quo returns and whiteys can once again get jobs then they’ll kick Black folks to the curb just as they’ve done time and time again. Black people are convenient in times of war or other national crisis then after things cool down then it’s back down the economic ladder.

Some of those same liberal white people who claim to be beating drums and marching for us all will curse me to my face and call me a nigger bitch once I put on that uniform. Even so-called alternative communities reveal what they really think of me by what comes out of their mouths. For example I used to go to the white tattoo artists for my tattoos but I finally got sick of them saying my skin was too dark for color. Too dark by whose standards. Funny my money wasn’t too green. Now I only go to the Black, Hispanic & Asian tattoo artists in my community. They don’t make those racist statements.

There is an expression in the Black community that when white America sneezes Black America catches a cold. Well white America sneezed as soon as Bush became President and since then we’ve have bronchitis and pneumonia.  Where the fuck was OWS then? Oh no, it’s only when white people feel threaten that there is a so-called uprising or movement. Was OWS blind to what has been going on in urban America for the last ten or twenty years? Well I guess they fucking have.

Unemployment has been well over the national average for Black America. A random guess would be unemployment is upwards of 30% to 40%. Southeast Queens where I live has the highest foreclosure rates in the United States. The Public schools in the inner city have been failing students of color for years. But that did not fit into the OWS or white liberal equation until now. How convenient. Well I refuse to buy into this nonsense. When my so-called peers can’t give me respect in the good times don’t expect me to go along for the ride because I’m just handy to have around. We need an all inclusive grassroots movement with identifiable goals, focus, purpose & strategies.

Occupy Wall Street — Go Home!!


Occupy Wall Street – Go Home

Occupiers you’ve overstayed your welcome. A once noble cause has become a farce. Guys & Gals since you have so much time on your hands Occupy a soup kitchen, food pantry, homeless shelter, help disabled/homeless veterans, donate your clothing and foodstuffs to the truly poor. Stand for something real instead of pissing off the working class, the true hardworking 99%!  Occupying the subway last Thursday stopping the working class and middle class from getting home just pissed off the people you are supposed to represent.  If you can’t do anything of real value just go home and occupy a job. Being squatters at Zuccotti Park, annoying the people who live and work in the neighborhood is not a progressive or productive way to initiate change.

By the way your movement is very well funded. Obviously this was a well planned, well thought out move to capture the anger and support of millions of unemployed and displaced Americans. At first I was taken in by what seemed to be a genuine “People’s Movement”.  Occupy Wall Street seemed to hearken back to the protests and demonstrations of the 1960s which resulted in Civil rights for Blacks, women and gays. Laws changed and for a while life did improve for disenfranchised minority groups. Anarchy and chaos makes for good news headlines but it does nothing to change the lives of those who really need sustainable long term positive change in their lives.

Then as I continued to read and observe the OWS movement I realized that it was mostly composed of well to do, well fed white college students. Maybe not actually the 1% but most likely the sons and daughters of the 1%. More than likely when you graduate you will take your places within corporate America easily absorbed into companies that your parents either work for or perhaps even own. The real 99% don’t have access to the opportunities available to you. The authentic 99% actually have to go to those wage slave jobs just to keep body and soul together. We don’t have the option to live in a park, rent free with all our needs supplied for two months straight just to have the title of the proletariat. Suddenly what on the surface seemed like a rag tag bunch of individuals had daily access to healthy free food, clothing, sleeping bags, tents, health care, etc….  If you are truly for the poor, working poor, working class, then why don’t you go into the high poverty areas of New York City and donate all your supplies. Obviously you don’t need them and if you do, there seems to be an endless supply from your nameless, faceless backers. OWS your actions no longer match your words. Go home and occupy your campus then occupy a job like the rest of us.  Or if you really want a challenge “Occupy the Hood.”  That’s right go see how well you can occupy in some of New York poorest, most crime ridden, drug infested neighborhoods.  Bet you won’t last too long there!

OWS, where is the Thanksgiving dinner for folks living in homeless shelters and on the streets of New York? Do you plan to donate the food or invite some of the disenfranchised 99%? Will you be purchasing a toy for a homeless, orphan, or foster child this holiday season? What dates, days and times will you volunteer at your local animal shelter? Seems like a good idea since you I see you got your dogs occupying also. Occupy Paw Street?! What’s that all about? Did the dog have a choice in whether or not she/he wanted to join you in occupying?

This is disgusting and truly shows the hypocrisy of the movement. This Chef should be preparing meals for the many homeless families who will have nothing to eat this Thanksgiving. People protesting while on their iPhones, iPads, Laptops, all the while wearing expensive clothing don’t need a free meal. The poor and working class do. Practice what you preach. Walk the walk not just talk the talk.
