I do everything I can to be UNBIASED. I usually am. Rarely do I play the so-called “race card” (I really don’t know what that is) But right now I am past PISSED! First Trayvon and now Jordan Davis? This is yet ANOTHER instance of cut and dried racism. I will be up front I am 40 years old now and even I don’t listen to that much rap music. Loud or otherwise. And there are some knuckleheads in my neighborhood who blast rap music and loud metal music. But I don’t want to MURDER them for it! How much more BLACK blood needs to be spilled? Also that goes for these so-called gang members as well. This is what the ORIGINAL Black Panther Party For SELF-DEFENSE stood for. The emphasis on SELF-DEFENSE not RACISM. How long will we be burned two fold? Playing the stereotype and playing the victim. When will we stop picking and choosing our battles? When will the pimp and the drug dealer be put in the same category of filth with the skinhead or klan member? Or will we just have to keep a black suit handy for the next Trayvon or Jordan? Peace….

It has been a while since I have posted. But today is Thanksgiving and also my birthday. So I will list the things I am thankful for. I am thankful for having a roof over my head when so many other folks don’t. I am thankful for God allowing me to see the age of 40. I am thankful for my grand kids (Proverbs 17:6) . I am thankful to live in one of the greatest countries on earth. I am thankful to be in my right mind. I am thankful for good friends and family. I am thankful that even though I am not perfect I am FORGIVEN.

Sorta pressed for time today so I think I will re-post what I posted on Facebook. I know not ALL Republicans and conservatives are as contradictory or hypocritical as this “lady”. But it makes you think why would a member of any minority group (*cough*Herman “Catdaddy” Cain) would want to associate with her. But of course when speaking of the minorities in question she’s not talking about him. “He’s different”. He’s one of “ours”. Uh-huh… Now of course I know that idiots,bigots and racists come in all sizes,shapes and colors. When the mood hits me I shine the light on their tomfoolery and nonsense. Right now it’s Ann Coulter‘s turn.
Human beings in God‘s image are being born into ruined lives at rates that boggle the mind. Illegitimate children are never given a chance, their lives destroyed by this social pathology. And Democrats say: More Democratic voters!
So Ann admits that human being are made in GOD’S IMAGE. But in the same breath will talk about non-whites as if they are LESS than HUMAN. Yet another reason an atheist will say Christianity is BS. Thanks Ann.
Controlling for socioeconomic status, race and place of residence, the strongest predictor of whether a person will end up in prison is being raised by a single parent. (The second strongest predictor is having a tattoo.)
Really Ann? So my ONE tat of a heart and my kids names (BTW no outta wedlock kids here! Got an EX-wife and a CURRENT wife,lol) means I’m headed for Sing Sing? YIKES! Then again there are quite a few skinheads and bikers sporting tats!
Children raised by a single mothers commit 72 percent of juvenile murders, 60 percent of rapes, have 70 percent of teenaged births, commit 70 percent of suicides and are 70 percent of high school dropouts.
You could probably build negative points on FOUR of these things. But why would you include SUICIDE? That would be a POSITIVE point for a bigot. Why? Duh…the people you HATE are getting rid of THEMSELVES. Just goes to show you even “intellectual” racists are STUPID,LMAO!!!
Thank God the white man did win or we would not have the sort of equality and freedom or life that we have now.
I say: Ann that sounds mighty close to a “superiority complex”. You must know that the same God you claim we are made in the image of sees us as being all the same. Falling short of His glory. And no WHITE,BLACK,YELLOW,BLUE or GREEN man,woman,child or goat can help us. So thank God that HE was there. Not the white man or any MAN.
Last because this is starting to make me sick…bleeeech!
And manifestly, white men have no political power in modern America. They just rush in to save us when the nation is attacked.
*sigh* Crazy Ann is at it again:
Number one: In which decade does “modern America” begin? I’ll say the 1900′s. So from 1900-2012 white men have had no “political power”. Yeah, as much as I hate to I gotta agree with Annie Oakley on this one. My grandma (RIP) was born in 1915 in Georgia but grew up in Alabama. She used to tell me stories about the “Nightriders” and the KKK. How one night they came and got her neighbor who lived down the road. They beat him then drug him down by a creek and lynched him. All because he looked at a Black woman. Waitaminit! He was Black and the woman was White. And his murderers were never caught. Why? Cause they were town officials and one was the sheriff. And that’s just LOCAL political power. Would you like to hear about Helms,Thurmond,Lott,Buchanan,Duke,etc? And just when was the last time military action was carried out on mainland America. Not counting 9/11. Just when was the last time a foreign army was stopped at the shores? Off the top of my head I know during World War Two there were Nazi agents who landed by U-Boat. I’m sure someone will correct me,but my point is this: There have been men and women of ALL ethnicities who have served. Of course not all have seen combat (myself included) but they took the oath and wore the uniform. I’ve been joking a little bit up until this point. But seriously for you to claim it’s just “white men” who laid their life on the line is a spit in the face of every vet. Including white vets. I’ve lost a few good friends in those killing fields in Iraq and Afghanistan. You need to get yourself together and worship in spirit and truth the God you claim to believe in. Because one day He will question you. And you will answer.

A short and to the point (and probably very unpopular) observation. I am neither “conservative” or “liberal” I am a registered Democrat but that’s where the labels and affiliations end. Because in the end a people must do for themselves. No amount of voting in the “democratic process” will uplift you unless you are willing to uplift yourself. Which brings me to this point. Of all the places on earth this country for all it’s flaws (which ALL countries have,even Canada,lol) is one of the best in the world. Yes there is still racism. Yes there is still sexism. Yes there are plenty of “isms” but none are so powerful that you can’t overcome. So it makes me past ANGRY and way past MAD when I see my young Black men and women feeding into a stereotype. My mother always taught me to never give someone the satisfaction of putting you in a “box”. Don’t make a stereotype TRUE. I have lived in three different places in my 39 years on earth. Warren,OH,South
Jamaica,NY and Norfolk,VA. Each were vastly different from each other but they did have a few things in common. Low rent areas were full of broken glass,graffiti,not one payphone worked and check cashing spots and liquor stores as far as the eye can see. And some people lovingly refer to this as the “ghetto”. Why in the hell would you want to be from the “ghetto” in the first place? Why would you want to tear up your own stuff? Why in the hell would you want to call yourself “nigga” (and all of it’s variants) and then justify it by saying “it was negative but now it’s a “term of endearment“. WTF???? That word will NEVER,EVER in a BILLION years be a “term of endearment”. If that’s the case then you can’t get upset when someone of a different ethnicity uses it. Notice I didn’t say “race”. As far as ghettos go. IMHO there are no real ghettos in the U.S. Now there are definitely some rough neighborhoods but not ghettos. In my travels in the military I have seen REAL ghettos. Rio,Bogotá,Manta,etc. Those are places where an AK-47 would actually come in handy. But be thankful over here you don’t need a tool like that to survive day to day. If anyone reads this please know that I am not down with “The Man” (whoever he may be) and I am not trying to trivialize racism (hell I got called the N word just last Saturday on 64 East,lol) but we as Black people are in our greatest days. Freddie Douglas would pass out he were to be alive in 2012. Lets stop acting like we’ve lost our minds and take our rightful place at the Table of Nations. Peace. God bless….
A Man Of His Time…Or Just Another Excuse? July 10, 2012Posted by chris in Random Stuff.

When I am bored I like to surf the internet and look up whatever subject comes to my mind. Recently I looked up Charles Lindbergh,H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard. Now these men are all individuals but for the most part contemporaries. The one thing they have in common is that they were all leaders in their fields and to this day have LOTS of fans (I myself am a Lovecraft and a Howard fan,lol). But also they had deep-seated racism. Now there are some fans (like myself) who will readily admit their flaws but look past them to enjoy their work. Still there are others who make excuses for their behavior. Usually in the form of “….he was just a man of his time” or “back then it was common and socially acceptable”. Actually a girlfriend of Howard’s,Novalyne Price was turned off by his racism. But to be completely fair Howard’s racism softened during the later part of his life. He was also a great fan of Black heavyweight champ Jack Johnson. Regardless of that the point I am making is that saying racism was the order of the day and acceptable is a cop-out and an excuse. That like saying back in 1929 it was okay to marry a five year old girl because it was “socially acceptable”. But in 2012 it’s not. It is what it is.
Ida Keeling: The 95 Year-Old Sprinter April 18, 2012Posted by chris in Random Stuff.

If you are short on any inspiration to start exercising, get to know Ida Keeling. The 95 year-old set the world record last year running 60 meters in 29.86 seconds in the Masters Sprint Night last year.
Keeling, a great-great grandmother from the Bronx is not like any other 95-year-old you have ever met. At 4’6” and 83 pounds, she takes one prescription drug and states, “I am not a sickly person.” On size 5 and1/2 feet, she runs in the hallways of her apartment building and on treadmills, lifts weights, and rides an exercise bike.
