Jemel Roberson

If you have been paying attention to the news, you know very well who Jemel Roberson was. I say was because he is now deceased. What caused his untimely death? Four shots from a trigger happy police officer. A police officer who was informed by several of the patrons that Jemel was the security guard. The very same security guard who subdued a gunman who came in aiming to take many lives that evening. Unfortunately for Jemel, he lost his life while saving the lives of others.

Jemel, like some of the other INNOCENT Black men, has become another statistic of deadly police brutality. Jemel Roberson, a Black man, was shot four times while pinning down a gunman who came in that evening aiming to take many lives. Yes, Jemel was shot four times after several of the patrons informed the White police officer that Jemel was the security guard.

That’s becoming a theme lately. Shoot or kill the Black man first, then ask questions later. Spare the life of the White gunman who just killed several people, but if you have to shoot the White gunman, don’t shoot to kill. When you report the crime to the media, tell them the Black man was a thug or life long criminal. The White gunman who just murdered several people? Oh, he suffered from depression, has a mental illness or struggled with PTSD. Are you following me?

Jemel shouldn’t be laying up in the morgue right now. He should be at home with his 9 month old son and family. Jemel, at the age of 26, was trying to provide for his family by working as a security guard and staying out of trouble. Now he’s dead because of a trigger happy police officer who saw him as a “threat.” Jemel had just saved numerous lives. How on earth could he be seen as a “threat?” Jemel the Hero is dead because of racial profiling and that is beyond tragic.

Until next time…

Kevin Kirkland

You see that despicable, useless, filthy name? If you are a news buff like myself, you know what type of garbage is behind that name. Kevin Kirkland, for those of you who may not know, was a Special Needs teacher in the state of California who was convicted of sexually assaulting Special Needs students. What is more disturbing is that students had been complaining about him and his deviant conduct for years. Look at him. Look at his filthy, disgusting sour-looking self!

It has taken ten long unnecessary years for charges to be brought against this sexual sadist, predator, pedophile and rapist and I find that to be outrageous. Imagine the fear and intimidation his students must’ve felt whenever they had to step foot into his classroom. I’m angry and I blame the principal and school district for ignoring the pleas of these brave Special Needs students who took steps to report him. That school district he taught in is as worthless as a penny with a hole in it. Useless lint balls…

My heart goes out to the victims and I hope the parents will go after the principle and school district next for not taking the complaints of their children seriously and for failing to protect them. He should have never been allowed to harm so many students for so long. Just imagine the damage this gutter urchin has done…

Until next time…

Don’t Be Like This…

Don’t be racist, prejudiced or discriminate against someone who is of another race or nationality. We don’t deserve such ill-treatment and hate. We have feelings and rights too. As a person of color, I’m more in tune with racism, prejudice and discrimination because I live it and deal with it every single day. If you are not a person of color, you CAN’T relate, but you CAN empathize…

Just take a look at the news. There is so much of hate towards people of color and those of a different nationality. Racists and prejudiced people have such a long history of violence and it’s still prevalent today. They like to use violence and intimidation, yet people of color, especially Black people, are often seen as violent or threatening. It’s quite ironic considering how history has shown that we’ve been the biggest victims of racism, hate and violence. And you know what? We still are.

It’s amazing how racist and prejudiced people try to justify hating someone based solely on their race, ethnic background or nationality. It makes no sense whatsoever which is why I believe all prejudiced and racist people are dumb and delusional. You can’t convince me otherwise.

Until next time…

Mass Shooting in Jacksonville, Florida

Every time you turn on the TV there is a shooting. Yesterday, there was a mass shooting that took place in Jacksonville, Florida where three people lost their life, including the suspect. How can one be so heartless to just open fire on a group of innocent people just because you are upset. I watched the video of it and it was graphic. I feel so bad for the innocent victims families. I can’t imagine what they are going through right now.

We lived in Jacksonville, Florida for a couple of years because my father was stationed there when he was in the Navy. One of our favorite things as kids was to watch the ships come in. When the ships docked, we would get so excited because we knew our Dad was going to be walking out soon. Scenes like what took place on Sunday didn’t exist during that time.

We all get upset and angry from time to time, but that’s no reason to shoot up a place and kill innocent people. We all have family and friends that love us and care for us regardless if we have disagreements with those outside of our personal circle. If we get upset with each other, there is no need for us to harm one another. That other person has family and friends that love and care about them too and their life is just as precious as your own.

Prayers and condolences to the innocent victims families.

Just Foul

I rarely get on Youtube, but I happened to stumble across a video that blew my mind so much that I had to blog about it. It’s a video of a woman who destroyed a gas station because her EBT card aka Food Stamp card was declined. Whose fault is that? It’s not the clerk’s fault or the store owner’s fault that there were no more funds on it. Why tear up the store? You know I’m going to post the video so keep reading. The first word that came to my mind was foul and when you see the video, you’ll understand why I chose that word.

FS

This foul pathetic excuse of a woman ransacked a gas station and felt like she had a right to do it. I have relatives who own businesses and I can assure you she would’ve been thrown out with the quickness. She wouldn’t have the chance to do the damage she caused in this gas station because they would’ve removed her from the store the minute she started to knock stuff down. My family doesn’t play when it comes to their businesses. The same goes for many other business owners. If she had of refused to leave, the police would’ve definitely been called. Not all cops are bad cops. Some people need the cops called on them.

EBT

It’s behaviors like this that makes the honest hard working people who receive EBT / Food Stamps look bad. Not all people who are on welfare and / or EBT / Food Stamps act like this. Foolishness comes in all races, nationalities and colors. If it were up to me, she wouldn’t receive another dime, nickel or penny of EBT assistance for such despicable behavior. Sometimes you have to teach people a lesson so they’ll understand certain behaviors are not acceptable. Click here. You’ll be shaking your head as soon as it plays.

Marvin Said It Best

Good Evening to everyone tonight. I hope that each of you are doing well and are safe. With everything that is going on in the world today, you can’t help but to stop and pause because of all the turmoil that is in the news each and every day. To say that it’s heartbreaking would be an understatement because the life we know can drastically change at any given moment.

I was asked to post a song on here that I personally feel is still relevant today. Seeing how blues and soul music are my top favorites, I had to go with the late Marvin Gaye. The song? What’s Going On. When you hear it, I want you to pay very close attention to the lyrics. Even if you’ve never heard of Marvin Gaye, after listening to this song, you too will agree that this song he penned from the heart 47 years ago is still relevant today no matter who you are.

Soul music is called Soul music for a reason. It’s because the music comes from deep within a person’s soul. For those of you who may not know, Black people used music to speak out against the things that bothered them or hurt them. Why through music? Because their spoken words were often ignored. It was only when they would sing that people who were not Black would actually listen. Thus, that is how the genres of Soul music and The Blues were born.

Without further ado, I present to you Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On here.

Until next time…

Dante Danielsย 

You see that name? I never heard of that name, that is until I took a break from editing and formatting my second novel this evening.

Dante Daniels was an eight year old boy murdered this month by his mother’s ex-boyfriend DeAndre Chaney, Jr. Why was he murdered? Because he stepped in to try and stop his seven year old sister from being molested. Dante was beaten from the head all the way down to his spine with a hammer just for trying to stop his sister from being molested. How evil and disgusting! What bothers me the most is that the mother KNEW how the ex-boyfriend was and she STILL asked him to watch her kids while she took her brother to work. Outrageous!

Once she returned home, she heard screaming and crying. When she went to see what was wrong, she was then beaten with a hammer too. This tragic situation could have been avoided and it has a community in California outraged. This precious little boy shouldn’t have lost his life for trying to protect his little sister. He was just trying to do the right thing. ๐Ÿ˜ข

DeAndre, as far as I am concerned, is what my late paternal Grandma would call subhuman filth!
