I borrowed this picture from over at jobsangers blog. I love dropping by and reading his blog because he is a man of few words, but in those few words he delivers a powerful message using images that speak a thousand words every single time. A newer blog that I like stopping by and checking out is Mack Lyons over at "Different Day, Same Shit." Lyons exposes the deception, breaks it down, and enlightens his readers. Both are true warriors against injustice in my book, so I just wanted to give them their props.
This post is not about President Bush. Nope! However, it is about some of those folks on the right and a little of this and a little of that. Birds of feather do flock together, so why wouldn't Jigging, Hustling, Uncle Ruckas Cain have a crooked campaign aide for a manager. After all, Cain is what I would call...well... a venal character who is willing to sell out his own group of people to get ahead...another Clarence Thomas.
I'm reminded of that scripture when I see Cain, "What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but to lose his soul." Frankly, I believe Cain lost his soul a long time ago when he was affiliated with Enron or maybe even before that.
Some of you folks running around here telling black folks that they are brainwashed and on a plantation because they vote for Democrats had better take note from the case in which the brotha got paid $5.2 million for being called a slave.
"A co-worker of Johnson’s had said he was Johnson’s “masta” at a company picnic."~~
In another case, a black employee got paid $210,000 for his boss calling him a monkey and gorilla.
See, I told you black folks are tired! They are tired of overlooking the dumb feces and dealing with racism every single day of their lives. This is supposed to be "The Land of the Free, justice and Liberty for ALL, and that includes black folks, red folks, yellow folks, and brown folks too. It is time to discard and put an end to racism.
When Martin Luther King marched, he wasn't just marching for black folks. Nope! He was marching for humanity. Because racism is one of the strongest forms of hate that smothers the life out of humanity and freedom. Every single human being on this earth should be entitled to pursue happiness and prosperity without obstructions. It is a legal right of all Americans.
Which brings me to voter suppression being attempted in Texas the land gun toting governor Rick Perry. This time it is aimed at Hispanics. Next, I guess, will be other minorities who are citizens in this country. Folks voter suppression is serious because this was how they eased Jim Crow in after reconstruction. Suppressed votes helps enable them to get their people in office and keep out the people's choice.
Oakland Chief of Police is protecting his men, and why are we not surprised. That's normal procedure when those in the blue mess up. However, this statement here was a little too much and tells me someone is trying to avoid a possible lawsuit.
"Fellow veterans say police fired an object that struck him in the head, but authorities say object has yet to be definitively established, as well as the person responsible for the injury."~~Associated Press~~
Yup, we know the drill. What you saw wasn't really what you saw. Alrighty!
