Post Racial America...
That is the hot new saying in AmeriKKKa now that we have a half Negro sitting behind the big desk, in the funny shaped office, in the big WHITE house on 1600 Penn Ave.
But does that saying hold water, or is it full of holes?
From where I sit, I think it is full of holes.
AmeriKKKa was founded by men who believed that their skin was the most beautiful of all skins.
AmeriKKKa was founded by men who believed that their skin entitled them to rule the world.
AmeriKKKa was founded by men who believed that other skin tones were weaker and inferior.
And all these beliefs are still being held as truth in the year of our Lord 2009, by some of the people in this country with the same skin tone as the "founding fathers".
Not all, I have to say, but some. There are a lot of "light"skinned people in this country that wish that all this talk about skin color would just go away. There are a lot of people that could care less about how dark my skin is, or how big my nose and lips are. They could care less if my hair is kinky. All they see is who I really am, a man, who just so happens to have a darker skin tone than they do.
But on the other hand there are a lot of color challenged people that hate me for all the reasons that I mentioned above.
Basically, they hate me cause they ain't me.
Take this for example, MILITIA groups are on the rise here in the good 'ole US of A.
As is straight out HATE GROUPS.
Why you may ask?
Well, it seems that these people strongly believe that "their country" is being taken from them.
They believe that their rights are being infringed upon by all these "darkies" that have infiltrated the government that was set up by their forefathers.
They believe that their heritage is being disrespected.
They feel that too much emphasize is being put on the accomplishments of the non-whites that actually built this country into what it is.
They feel just like the "founding fathers" felt, that White Skin is a blessing from their God and that Black or Brown skin is a curse.
And to make matters worse, this ideology is not confined to the illiterate, back woods, inbred motherfuckers that traditionally think like this.
The people with this mentality are involved in State and National politricks, they are hosts of popular cable "news" programs, and they run multi-billion dollar corporations.
These people own Media corporations which include newspapers, T.V. stations and "think-tanks".
In other words they control what we see, hear, buy and most off all, what we 'believe' to be true.
And they all feel threatened by what they believe is an "invasion".
But instead of coming out and professing their heart-felt beliefs, they play on people's fears. They perpetrate stereo-types and play on people's sense of loyalty. They tell people lies disguised as "news".
They tell the masses that the boogie man is coming to take their jobs and fuck their daughters and that they are sneaking across our holy borders by the millions. But they neglect to tell the masses that the boogie man that is coming across the borders to the land of milk and honey is being tricked into coming by false promises of equality and "good paying" jobs that Americans will not do.
They orchestrate the delivery of drugs into this country, give it to poor people to sell to other poor people and then throw the sellers and the buyers into prisons that are controlled by them. They fill these prisons with the fathers of the poor communities, leaving a generation of broken homes to be headed by overwhelmed women.
They purposely under fund schools in these communities filled with broken homes so that the fatherless children that are forced to attend these schools have no chance of competing with their children in the global arena and most of them follow the paths of their fathers.
They pay illiterate men insane amounts of dollars to run a ball for them, shoot a ball for them or to run around a track for them while telling them that education is not important as long as they get paid. And then they fine them and fire them if they resort to doing illiterate shit.
They constantly bombard us with images of what they feel is beautiful and paint anything that is not considered beautiful by them as lazy no good people that are looking for a hand out.
They bad mouth any religion that disagrees with their religion and label said religion a "terrorist" organization.
All this is done under the guise of "patriotism" the First Amendment and for the love of America, the land of the free.
They get PEOPLE OF COLOR that have gotten used to the scraps that they allow to fall from the big dining table to bad mouth anybody that openly disagrees with the establishment and then say that if this PERSON OF COLOR is agreeing with their distorted views, then it cannot be racist.
This is all taking place in a "Post Racial America" right under our big noses.
I could write all day about how all this talk of a "Post Racial America" is a bunch of bullshit.
America was built around skin color and "racial pride".
And I believe that there are some stains that just will not come out.
No matter how much bleach and hot water one might use.

What is torture?
Is torture threatening to commit an act of violence against someone?
Is it threatening to kill a loved one?
Is it faking the murder of one prisoner in order to get another prisoner to talk?
Is it simulated drowning?
Is it harsh talking?
What is it? What constitutes torture?
According to THIS, all of the above is torture.
I have my own definition of torture. My definition of torture is you do what you got to do to get the information you need. Sometimes inflicting physical pain and discomfort might be needed. Sometimes lying might be needed. Sometimes inhumane treatment might be needed. Sometimes killing a loved one might be needed. Or sometimes none of the above might work and you have to change strategy and treat the prisoner humanely. I believe it depends on who is being interrogated and how crucial the information. If lives depend on whatever the prisoner knows, if killing him/her would save hundreds or thousands of lives, then I believe you do the unthinkable.
But this is just my opinion.
Me personally, I don't see anything wrong with torture, especially in a war time environment.
Maybe this is just the soldier in me talking.
I will do whatever I have to do to save anyone I love, or to keep the way of life I am used to. Even if that means WATERBOARDING, lying, killing, tricking, feeding a prisoner pork, or taking naked pictures of them.
Whatever it takes.
The Obama administration has it's own definition of torture.
I do not agree with what Big O'S ADMINISTRATION is doing to the CIA.
Some things need to be kept quiet. Some of the tactics that are used by this countries intelligence agencies need to be kept confidential. This bullshit about prosecuting intelligence officers for doing their jobs is exactly that, BULLSHIT.
We pay these brave men and women to protect us by whatever means is at their disposal and then we threaten them with jail time when we find out how they protected us?
Does that make sense?
Do you think other countries give a damn about how Americans are treated if they catch one doing something that they consider wrong?
Didn't BILL CLINTON just rescue 2 journalists that were railroaded in North Korea?
Isn't there some Americans being held in Iran just for CROSSING THE IRANIAN BORDER?Why does America always have to follow the "rules"? As if this country is above reproach?
The Geneva Convention does not work.
War is not civil. It is not sexy.
War is brutal and very uncivilized.
The whole purpose of war is to kill.
How is killing supposed to be civil?
With all the violence that is permitted on the streets of this country everyday, American on American violence, how can this country even fix it's mouth to say anything about torturing a person whose sole purpose is to harm Americans?
To me torture is growing up in a gang infested neighborhood.
Torture is going to a school that does not teach.
Torture is not being able to afford basic health care.
Torture is not knowing where your next meal is coming from.
Torture is being lied to by the same government that says it is protecting you.
Torture is losing your whole life savings because of a crooked ass crooked CEO.
Torture is not TELLING someone that you will kill his mother.
But this is just my opinion.
So all you people that disagree with me, give me your definition of torture.
I'll be waiting.

The title of this post came from the movie Malcolm X.
These words were shouted as a distraction right before the assassins killed Malcolm X.
I have a feeling that our Presidents life is in danger.
I mean how else can you explain how people are being allowed into a Presidential meeting with LOADED WEAPONS?
How can the Secret Service fix their mouths to say that the protesters that had the LOADED WEAPONS did not do anything wrong?
Why is the media not talking about how the President gets THIRTY death threats a day?
What the hell does carrying LOADED WEAPONS have anything to do with a discussion on Health Care reform?
How did these idiots even get allowed to get within 10 blocks of the President?
What do you think would have happened if the Black Panthers would have shown up to a Bush rally with LOADED WEAPONS?
Why isn't the media telling the truth about how all these "protesters" are plants, whose sole agenda is to disrupt the discussion so that nothing gets discussed, which mean nothing gets accomplished?
Why are they saying that these protesters are just average American citizens exercising their rights?
This is AmeriKKKa's version of 3 card Monty.
Health care is not supposed to be fixed.
It is not even supposed to be talked about.
It is the way it is for a reason.
And that reason is MONEY.
Our President is starting to Fuck with too many people's money and they don't like it.
And I know first hand from growing up on the streets and doing street shit, that there are two ways to definitely get killed here in AmeriKKKa.
1. Fuck with someones money.
2. Fuck with someones woman.
Seeing as how there is not a woman involved with any of this..... well....
What is left?
I know that some people are still upset that there is a Negro family living in the house that most people thought (including me)would stay home to a White Family, but I think eventually that the love of money and the fear of losing it, will out trump the President's skin color.
Didn't Eddie Murphy say in the movie Trading Places that the only way to hurt rich people is to turn them into poor people?
So I hope that the Secret Service is up on their job, because I have a feeling that they are going to get tested.

Sometimes I hate teenagers.
The other day I decided to go to one of my favorite fast food joints, Taco Bueno.
I pull up to the drive through, order my food and pull around to the pick-up window.
The first thing that pissed me off was that it took forever and 3 weeks for the little heffer that worked the window to come to the window and take my money.
The second thing that got me hotter than this Dallas 102 degree weather was that
it took them another 3 weeks to bring my order out. I started to think that they had to make the short trip to Mexico and get my Tia Consuela to cook the mixed Fajita platter I ordered.
The third thing that made me want to choke the little gum smacking ass @#$%! was this....
I have posted before about how I like Rock music.
Well on this particular day I felt the need to jam a little Linkin Park.
Those White Boys be jamming and while I was waiting for the cooks in this "fast food" joint to kill the chicken and cows that come with the steak and chicken platter I ordered, I was nodding my head to track number 6 on their CD, Hybrid Theory.
Well this little !@%$# finally came back with my food, looked at me like I stunk and asked me, and I quote,
"Why are you listening to that mess?"
By this time I was already hotter than a Jehovah's Witness at a Baptist convention and I lost it and said,
"Because @#$@! I am a grown-ass man and I f#$%^!ing feel like it!"
Well the little young-in slammed the window shut and stormed off.
I laughed at the whole thing and drove home nodding my head to those white boys.
Have you ever had an experience at a "fast food" place like this?

In my short time on this earth, I have accomplished a lot of things. I have had an eventful military career which has taken me all over Europe and the United States. I have managed to get one college degree and I am currently working on another. I have been with the same woman for 11 years. I have managed to stay clear of the Police except for the occasional speeding tickets I have gotten. I have seen and done shit that the average man will never see or do. I have managed to keep my enemies at bay and my friends too.
Like I said I have accomplished a lot of things in my short life thus far, even though I feel as if I should be much farther along in my life than I am.
In case you are wondering where I am going with this.....
Today when I came home from work, my neighbor that lives in the house behind me texted me and told me that 7 or 8 Dallas County constables had surrounded the house behind mine and the one right next to his with weapons drawn looking for the guy that used to live there. This house was recently sold because the former NFL player that bought it for his Grandmother fucked off his career and the millions of dollars he made and could not afford it anymore.
Anyways the guy that the fuzz had a felony arrest warrant for is this former NFL Players Uncle. He was living with his elderly mother. This guy is in his mid 50's and he recently suffered a very serious stroke and has been in an old folks home for the past 6 or 7 months.
Apparently the fuzz thought he still lived in the house. My neighbor told me that he informed the fuzz that the house was recently sold and that the dude they where looking for was currently residing in an old folks home.
Well this guy was the "inspiration" behind this post.
Like I said this guy is in his 50's. He has 6 or 7 grown kids by 5 women that he did not raise. He has been in and out of jail and he has never had any kind of steady employment. He lived with his 78 year old mother and he constantly leached off his nephew, (the former NFL running back)when ever what ever hustle he was involved in at the time fell through the floor.
In other words this dude ain't shit, has never been shit and now that he is disabled, he will never be shit.
I wonder how he feels when ever he looks back on the life he wasted.
I wonder how it feels to have grown kids that do not respect you and instead of taking care of you when you have a serious health problem, they put you in a home.
I wonder how it feels to know that you have nothing to call your own.
I wonder how it feels to know that when ever you die and move from this life into the next that you have nothing to leave your loved ones.
I wonder how it feels to see cats younger than you that has accomplished shit that you could have done if you applied yourself.
How does all this feel?
Like I said, my life is not what I imagined it would be at my age. If I could go back and redo some things I definitely would.
I feel like I should have stayed in the military instead of getting out when I did. Even though I needed a break, I should have stuck it out. Now after a 7 year lay-off, I am right back where I left off. I get "promoted" next month to the same rank I had when I got out the first time. Now instead of having 2 years before retirement, I have another 9.
I should have worked on my degree while I was in the Army the first time, instead of just now trying to go to school.
When I did get out the Army, I should have moved back to Maryland, so I would have the help and support of my mentor, my Uncle Larry, instead of moving to San Antonio where I did not know anybody and the city is about as friendly as being in a cage with a bunch of starving tigers while having a raw steak tied around your neck.
There are a lot of things I should have done with my life that I wished I would have done.
But I can honestly say that I am a decent man. I have treated the people around me with respect and I have been blessed to get that respect back. Even though I have made some life changing mistakes, God has blessed me with a pretty good life. If I am to die tonight I believe I have taken advantage of most of the opportunities God has given me. I can die knowing that I have lived a pretty good life, I am loved and hopefully I will be missed.
So I have to wonder....
How does it feel to know that you ain't shit?

Sometimes I hate the country I was born in.
Sometimes I just want to leave this bitch and just deny that I was ever here.
I have a very strong love-hate relationship with my country and with some of the people that inhabit it.
If I had the money I would buy me an island in the Caribbean somewhere and never come back.
Americans are so damn hypocritical.
Why am I so upset?
Well it might have something to do with how the country is reacting to this whole Health care thing.
Those staged ass town hall meetings have pissed me off.
The whole time that Obama was running for office, his key applause getter was his speech on revamping health care, getting us out of Iraq and education.
Now that he is actually trying to do what he said he was going to do, he is a liar, a racist, Hitlers' Grandson, and a socialist.
The cry is, 'where is the money going to come from?'
And 'we don't want Government involved in our private business!'
But these same people were deathly quiet when we were spending 10 BILLION dollars a month in Iraq. They were deathly quiet when Americans were being spied on illegally.
They were deathly quiet when Obama's predecessor tried to get a 3 page letter through Congress explaining why we need to give Banks BILLIONS of tax dollars in "bail-out" money.
They were deathly quiet when the former Vice President's old company, that he still had stock options in, was called out for cheating the government out of BILLIONS of tax dollars.
According to some of these misinformed, uneducated people, Obama is really trying to paint the White House Black.
The man has done everything he said he was going to do to try to get the economy back on track, but the Party of Lincoln has thrown everything at him, including Reagan's dried up bones, to try to stop him and make him look stupid.
They have shown him absolutely no support, but when he goes ahead without them, he is a dictator that doesn't want to listen.
The people that bought into his change sermons while he was auditioning for the HNIC position, are starting to ask why did they vote this nigga into the Big Seat, because shit is not happening as fast as they want it to.
'We have given this man SIX whole months to straighten out 8 years of bullshit, and look, he has not done anything but spend more money! What the hell has he been doing these past SIX months? Posing for Vanity Fair?'
'Obama is not a citizen! Where is his Birth Certificate?', is another topic being discussed by the "fair and balanced" side of America.
Do they actually think that this man could become a State Senator, a United States Senator, go through all the vetting that was necessary to become a candidate for the President of the United States, and WIN the election to become the President of the United States, without a valid Birth Certificate proving he is who he said he is?
Hell,in order to get a Block Buster card you damn near have to fork over DNA!
If this man is smart enough to fool all the people that made a living searching through his shit (I mean literally searching through his actual shit)looking for something that could stop this half Negro from becoming the Big Boss Man, why the hell hasn't a certain Governor from California dummied up a Birth Certificate, so he could throw his hat in the ring?
I mean if Big O could do it, why has a White man not been able to do it?
I wonder if all those fools would be making this big a fuss if Mcsane and the crazy bitch from the bush would have won.
This is in no way an endorsement of the Dumocrats or their leader. I do not agree with some of Big O's policies. I definitely do not agree with some of the Rethugs policies.
But everything that I have discussed here is BULLSHIT that I believe is racially motivated.
I do not think that the shit that is being blasted by the media 24 hours a day would even be discussed if Obama was named Jones and both his parents were white.
I'm just saying.....

If a you were offered a job that was willing to pay you a 8 figure salary before you even did a days work and offer you umpteen millions of dollars of guaranteed money, would you tell the company that is offering you this once in a lifetime offer no thanks, because in your mind you deserve more?
Would you tell this company that the guy that was hired by their rival company to do the same job that you are interviewing for, gave their recruit more money and incentives even though he scored higher on the entrance exam than you did?
Would you do all this even though you are still recovering from a very serious injury that could impact your performance in the future?
Would you tell this company that unless they match or even double the offer that was offered to your rival, that you will go home and stay home for a year and reapply within that year so that other companies will have a shot at your "talents", since this company does not recognize who you are and what you are worth?
Well would you?
This is exactly what MICHAEL CRABTREE is doing to the San Francisco 49ers.
This does not make not nan sense to me.
Playing Professional Football is a privilege, not a right.
The 49ers does not owe this stupid youngin nothing.
Not a damn thing.
He is very lucky to be picked up by any Pro squad considering the ankle injury he suffered and had to have surgery on.
This is one of the many reasons I am starting to hate Professional Sports.
There is no reason under the hot ass Texas sun that a ROOKIE that has not played 30 seconds on the Professional level of anything, has not won any college championships, played for a mediocre college system, and suffered a very serious injury, should even be this arrogant.
Who does this Nukka think he is?
If this dummy wants to try this shit, then the 49ers should let him.
Let him rip his draws off and try to reenter the draft next year.
How many teams will draft this fool next year in the first round that has not smelled astro turf for a whole year?
How many teams will draft a fool in the first round that suffered a serious ankle injury before this years draft after he has been inactive for a whole year?
How many teams will take a chance on a fool that has proven he thinks he is above the rest of his team, even though he has not caught one pass in a Professional arena?
I understand that a person has to make a living doing something.
I understand the need to get paid.
But this shit right here....
This shit right here is exactly what is wrong with today's youth.
There is no desire in today's youth to work for and earn what they want. They want everything given to them.
There is no desire to work hard and prove that you are good enough to get recognition and respect.
Today's youth wants it all now, even though they know they have done nothing to get it all.
My Grandmother used to say that if you don't work, you don't eat.
If that was taught and applied in this day and time, there would be millions of starving kids in America.
And they say the Children are the future.
The future looks pretty bleak right about know.

I might be violating a man law with this post, but if I see or hear bullshit, I have to speak on it.
Since the state of Black Radio is currently going through a famine, I have been listening to Rock stations when ever I am in my car.
Yes my dear readers, you are reading the thoughts of a Black man that likes Rock and Roll. I have been a fan of Rock since I was little. As a matter of fact, my dream as a child was to play drums in a Rock Band. I was pretty good for a minute if I do say so myself.
The other morning on my way to work I was listening to a morning show on one of the stations I surf every morning and the subject of the morning was Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian breaking up. The DJ's asked their listeners (male listeners) if they would date a chick that they knew had a sex tape circulating the web.
Now as a man I have to admit that I have seen my share (and probably yours too) of Internet porn.
I don't see nothing wrong with looking at some titties every now and then.
Some of the stuff out there is straight disgusting, but some of it is alright.... in a freakish kind of way.
Saying that I have to say this. Sex is natural. God did not invent men and women to sit around and watch TV together all night.
He made us to get freaky with each other. That is how I came to be and how everybody else on this Earth came to be.
Whether you want to admit it or not, all of our mothers were freaks. All of our mothers at one time or another had their legs open and their jaws full.
Ain't nothing wrong with that. That is the way God wanted it to be.
So for a man to say that they would not date a women that they knew had a sex tape out, to me is hypocritical.
Especially since every man wants to star in a Sex Tape.
Yep I said it.
Every man wants to be the star in his own little version of DEBBIE DOES DALLAS.
We want to do it just so we can have some bragging rights.
We want to look at ourselves and say "Damn.. I am in that pussy right there! Look at me go! She can't get enough of Big Poppy! Whose Pussy is that? Mine, that's who!"
Yep I said it again.
That is how we (men) think.
And if any woman thinks that they can trust that their man will not share this tape with some of his boys or upload it to U-PORN, she is a damn fool.
Me personally, I don't see a damn thing wrong with dating a Woman that has made a sex tape with another man.
But I guess I can say that because I am secure with what I can do and with who I am.
As far as I am concerned, what a woman has done before I come around does not really matter.
Especially if she is as fine as Kim Kardashian.
That woman right there would make me do shit I promised God that I would never do.
