Are these black lives really not worth a damn?

How do we keep ending up with 2 Americas?  The one America that Ted Cruz is living in, where we taxpayers pay his stankin’ ass, top dollar, to sit up on high, with his Obamacare and a housing allowance, to preach down, to all the stupid, little people who just weren’t Blessed, like he was.

What about the America that Rand Paul wants to take us back to?  That’s the one that harkens back to “Gone With The Wind”, his father Ron Paul’s America, when Black folk didn’t get uppity and a business owner could serve who he wanted to serve. He said he would not have voted for a Civil Rights Act that demanded “Equal Protection” and that desegregated schools and created teacher’s unions and that created bussing and mixing of the Races?

Is that what they mean by taking back “their” country.  I must keep reminding them that I am Choctaw Indian.  My ancestors were here, when Christopher Columbus got here.  This is a Nation of immigrants but the immigrants that took this country seems to think that the generations of mistreatment by the White people who made us build this country can just go on forever.

Police have long since used Black communities to create lifestyles designed around pretending to serve & to protect, when, in reality, Black folks get “policed, while serving and protecting is only afforded to people who, naturally include officer’s friends and families.  They serve and protect people’s property and the neighborhoods that are quiet.

The shooting of an unarmed Black man, Walter Scott, in the back, by North Charleston Police Officer Michael T. Slager, is the America Black people have feared and have lived with, all of these years, since slaves were brought here.  Now, thank God, camera are capturing, in real time, the psyche of those who we are supposed to have the most trust in, to do the right thing.

I hope we’ll all say a little prayer.  I try not to turn everything into a “Race card” but friends, I say “If the foo shits…”.  Something is very wrong, in our society, when we allow a public trust to turn into “Lord of The Flies”.  It’s not quite as civilized as I thought it was.

Black lives do matter.  I’m asking for everyone who reads this, please just hear the Democrats out.  We need a strong #Democrat leader to stand up to the Police Union, the NRA, and to the extreme, Conservative, money & power driven, (really BIG Government), Republicans and to those selfish, fearful, squishy, sold out @Democrats.  This is a damn shame, is what it is.  Smh!

Scary!

Scary!

These are the invisible lives that are most effected by random gun violence. Why does the NRA hate Black children so much that they can’t even “allow” this country’s elected representatives to make some reasonable limits on guns and the laws that harm real lives? Hell, they won’t even discuss this issue in the People’s House of Representative or the People’s Senate. I can’t understand the hysteria. Is it as simple as being bought and paid for by the gun lobby’s interests, over a majority of Americans? You don’t need a gun to provide food for your family. You don’t need a gun for shelter. I have gotten this far in my own life, with not even a thought about owning or even using a gun, for anything. I am a Christian. The Bible says “Thou shalt not kill”. There aren’t any exceptions to that law. I don’t find that a terribly difficult rule to live by. Why is it that so many Christians choose to give God the middle finger on this law? I don’t know the answer to that question, yet.
