How Do You Tell A Friend That His Race Is Being Manipulated?

If you were to try and tell a Black person anyplace in America today that it is a lie that Blacks are killed more than others and treated more poorly than other races by police . . . Would they listen? Would they even give you a chance to tell them? Would they immediately attack you?

That is my dilemma. I believe the entire world is being manipulated based upon an intentional failure to extract the applicable data. Allow me to explain how this has happened.

  • There is no argument that Black people make up about 13% of the U.S. population.
  • But, most of the Black people making up this 13% live in only 10 to 12 States.

It may come as a surprise to a lot of folks, but there are parts of the United States in which there are no Black people, at all. There are places in the United States that if it wasn’t for a Black person driving through town, the Town folk would not have even seen a Black man. What does this mean our idea that Black people make up 13% of the U.S. population?

  • Instead of using the measurements created by using all 50 States, reduce your measurement to use the 12 States with a significant Black population.
  • Recalculate the racial percentages based upon the data from those States.

Recalculation of the applicable data demonstrates that Black people make up from 23 to 65% of the population. Now, this information changes most everything.

  • In most of the major cities of these States the Black population is almost equal the other races, including Whites.
  • In these States, White people are killed more by police than the other races, with the exception of Chicago which seems to have a whole bunch of Black people being killed by police.
  • Nation-wide, Whites are killed more by police approximately 30% more than the other races.

If you don’t believe me, do the research yourself. Here is the link to the Washington Post database.

My concern is for the ongoing racial unrest that has gripped the Nation presently. More police killings, looting, riots, and damage to business and other properties. Why are we doing this? I am not saying that there isn’t issues to be taken with Law Enforcement and Government. I am saying that we need to deal with these issues with real data supporting our position.

My other concern is why are we acting on the unsupported claims instead of qualifying our data. And, are we all being manipulated for someone to profit off of racism. You do realize that there is a lot of folks making bank off this racial disharmony?

Well if anyone can figure out a way to get the attention of anyone else, consider the possibility that I am right and re-evaluate your position on the issues. Don’t let a handful of racist make money off the color of your skin.

Making Money Off Hate . . .

How easy is it to start a legal hate group? How easy is it to use that hate group to pull themselves into the lime-light of life and spring eternal into extremely rich?

Black Lives Matter started as a racist organization and continues along those lines to this day. Started by three Black women about five years ago, they had no idea where BLM would take them. But quick to take advantage of the death of George Floyd, they found their launch pad. George Floyd’s death coupled with the lies that Blacks are treated worse than others by Police started the ball rolling and then the donations gave them bank.

George Floyd’s death was unfortunate and wrong. It should never of ended that way. But, I have to ask the question . . . How did George Floyd end up on the ground in the first place? The reason I ask is because it’s funny, White people often find themselves on the ground because they resisted arrest or failed to comply with the cop’s instructions. I cannot think of a single situation where the person being arrested was thrown to the ground and then held by force to the ground that didn’t involve resisting.

This may come as a surprise to most of the world, but in America it is a citizens responsibility to cooperate with Police

  • A person shall not willfully fail or refuse to comply with any lawful order or direction of a police officer .
  • Police officers do not get to order citizens to do “whatever they want”!
  • If you are arrested, and the arrest is illegal, you cannot say the arrest illegal, the Courts make that decision.

History is full of situations in which cops have told people to do things that were not necessary but for the most part if a cop tells you that you are under arrest, most anything after that you pretty much should cooperate and do. If the arrest is unlawful, you get to sue the agency performing the arrest and in some instances you can get paid for your troubles.

But, should you choose not to do as the nice Officer asks you to do, it will likely be interpreted as resisting which means there is a high probability you and/or the cop can be injured.

Suddenly there are organizations being formed usually based on things like skin color, sex, or some other thing to identify the harmed group of people. The problem with this is the identity of a group. People get so wrapped up in these specific identities that they fail to realize the issue is bigger than that, or they are forming their own hate group.

Add a little bit of donations to your group and you have begun making money off of Hate. Now you can say, “No I am not a hate group” but, to somebody suffering the same issue, their exclusion from your group creates the hate. Look at all the racial based organizations. Do you really think any issue they have is only relative to them? Everything an issue to one race, likely also has impact on the other races, exclusion causes hate. Yes it is quite easy to profit from running a hate group.

How To Stop Racism

Actually, it is simple. Just everybody stop being whatever color you are. No more “Blackness,””Whiteness,” or “Otherness.” I know it sounds stupid, but think about it. If you were not the color you are, would all of your preconceived racial beliefs matter anymore?

Every race has their own beliefs and opinions on how their race is impacted by others. And each race has a lot of bullshit in these beliefs.

The claim that Black people are treated more poorly and killed by police more than Whites is a garbage claim supported by manipulation of data, and is not true.

But, somebody has allowed this manipulation of data to continue a lie to such a degree that everybody including lawmakers, educators, and even clergy believe this claim. I need correct that. Everybody has allowed that claim be made without challenge. Recent rioting, looting, and even killings have taken place and it started with this claim.

You cannot stop racism by being a color. Being a color and trying to stop anything because you are that color, creates it’s own racism. If you support a single color, excluding others . . . Isn’t that racism? Wouldn’t not being of a race be better than being a race at all?

Then we have social influence. Every race has problems with interracial relationships. Here in the U.S. it’s a common sight, but in some countries a mixed race relationship is looked upon with hatred. Religion doesn’t so much separate by race, or does it? Religion may not directly create racism, but in following the Church beliefs it could have a racial impact. Family and friends are a great influence for racism. Is your best a racist? Don’t you get tired of their racial comments and slurs? How strong of an influence are they to you? Schools are the best place to not be racist, if the other people would let you.

Then the all time racial trigger, ANGER! It doesn’t matter what the color, sex, or any other thing the other person is, if they piss you off it’s racial real quick with the insults based upon race. And once that first racial insult is made, there is no taking it back. It matters not the color of your skin, your friend or lover calling you a racial slur in anger will forever harm the relationship.

Under the definition of racist, no person of color can be a racist. Racists is a term specific to White people in regards to their interactions with others of a different color. Yeah, well the original definition was written a long time ago:

RACIST: If you treat any other person as a lesser person than yourself based on skin color . . . You are a racist.

If you believe you are entitled to more than others based on the color of your skin . . . You are a racist.

If you have a problem associating with someone of a different race based upon their race . . . Yep, you a racist.

So, I have made my case, to stop racism, you have to quit being the color you are. Try it! It may work very well for you. If it doesn’t . . . You are probably a racist, please try again.

The biggest blockade in the stoppage of racism is organizations representing race. The moment you support any race exclusively, you create racism. These organizations make money to exist off that racism. Instead of forming an organization based on skin color, why not form an organization that is based on the real issue? Look around you, if you have an issue that you believe is racial, are others of other races having similar issue? So why not form an organization that serves both the true issue and the people that truly need it.

My point is, quit being racist. Seriously, try it. It isn’t that hard. Sure, you have to take responsibility for your own acts, and learn how to interact with others better. But, it isn’t bad.

Am I Expecting Too Much?

I do not find it unreasonable that the world suddenly discover me and subsequently beat a path to my door. I mean I have a pretty good grasp of reality. (What was that . . . Don’t worry he’s just hearing those voices again. Hey, those voices are real, I also hear them.) I write purty good and if you excuse the often misspelled words like there/their, are/our, and the sudden loss of what I am doing . . .

Let’s try this again. Is it unreasonable to expect that by some miracle somebody might stop by this site and find it so interesting, so fascinating, so insightful, and so entertaining that they would tell all their friends about what a wonderful site I have here and immediately they would follow? No, I do not find that to be unreasonable, so one or two of you guys are goofing off.

You see, word of mouth sometimes is the best promotion of many things and I am trying to send a very important message to the world. But in doing so most people come off sounding like they wear an aluminum foil hat most the time. I don’t even have any aluminum foil, I swear. So the recommendation of others of reasonable sanity can go a long way. (What’s he talking about now, he don’t know anybody of any sanity. Stop, he’s trying to think.) Would you guys get out of my head for a few minutes, this is important.

Anyway, I’m trying to tell the world that this racism crap is just that, CRAP!

You cannot eliminate racism by making one skin color more important than others.

You cannot eliminate racism by using color as an excuse for everything.

You cannot eliminate racism by pointing fingers at others.

You cannot eliminate racism by allowing racism to be used to avoid looking for the real cause of issues.

You cannot eliminate racism by forming groups and organizations that are racist by nature.

The way to fight racism is to quit being racist. I know, it sounds just a bit too simple, doesn’t it? But, if you eliminate skin color from your mind for a few minutes and then think of the issues and then consider that all of the races are experiencing the same issues, you will see that there are issues that require attention for everybody regardless skin color.

The true problem of racism, is racism is the problem. But, not how you would think. Every organization that carries in its name to serve for the betterment of one race, is racist. The moment you form a group to serve only a certain group, excluding others is either racist or criminal (or both). We are promoting racism in effort to fight racism and we are profiting off racism. And most of today’s racism is caused by those screaming the loudest about the existence of racism.

The truth be told, race is less the issue than monetary wealth. Eliminate low income neighborhoods by providing a decent income to the poor and watch how quick “we all get along.”

Anyway, as I was saying . . . Some of you folks is goofing off. Spread the word to your friends, family, and mental professionals that there might be something of value over here and then tell them where “over here” is. I will appreciate it and you might feel good for doing it. (Okay, so I’ll feel good about you doing it.)

Damn, That Hurt

Yesterday, while driving home from work I took a scrape and tumble with my motorcycle. Don’t know how, don’t know why, but I did and it hurt me worse than the bike.

But, that is not truly what this post is about. You see, when you are laying there underneath your motorcycle, trapped, with the exhaust pipe burning a hole into your leg . . . In between the “Damn that hurts” and the “Oh shit,i’m stuck” comes the holler you don’t even know you made, “Help, somebody get this motherfucker off me”. I was trapped beneath my bike and could not push it off as we had both come to rest against a cement divider wall on an off ramp. To get me out of this would require assistance or changing into my Superman underwear.

However, as cars full of White people passed my old leg on fire white ass, none stopped. But then, a young Black man rolls up runs over to me, picks my bike off me, helps me get it off the wall, and then hands my my cell phone and broken bike parts,and then goes about his way.

Young man, you are what we are talking about. Thank you, for helping me. Thank you for your courtesy, concern, and patience yesterday. I know I was a little foggy headed and I forgot to even ask you your name. But, if by the slimmest chance you happen to read this blog, I want you to know that I truly thank you and appreciate your assistance.

Thank You

Let’s Talk About George Floyd

Let’s preface this by saying there is no question George Floyd should still be alive today, under no circumstance should he have died in police custody, and his death was avoidable.

But, was the police officer acting racist or was George Floyd’s death racially motivated? Allow me to play devil’s advocate for a few moments. The officers approached Mr Floyd telling he was under arrest for committing some sort of crime. While attempting to handcuff Mr. Floyd he became non-compliant and resisted his arrest. The end result was Mr Floyd was taken to the ground. While on the ground Mr. Floyd continued resisting arrest and the officer felt it necessary to to kneel on Floyd’s back. While on the ground Mr. Floyd continued to resist, this time telling the officer that he couldn’t breath. The officer, not believing Mr floyd continues holding him down with his knee.

Now how many people were in the immediate area. Everybody that heard George Floyd cry for help and did nothing is guilty of murder or at least conspiracy to commit murder. You have a responsibility to do something to prevent his death if possible. So did you holler at the officer, did you approach the officer and do anything to stop him? What, you don’t think you can intercede when an officer is unknowingly killing someone?

Do you think it made any difference at all to that officer, the color of George Floyd’s skin? Could have before he resisted, didn’t matter a bit after he resisted. What mattered was his size, how strong he was, and if he was complying with his arrest. Race does not factor into the resistance equation. Do you really think the cop decided to kill a Black man in front of all these people with intent to get away with murder? Right?

If racism plays a role in George Floyd’s death, it’s in the voice of the witness. Negligence definitely! Racism, nope.

American society is so quick to play the race card,that sometimes we look beyond it. George Floyd should not have died. George Floyd should not have died even if he resisted arrest. But, ask yourself . . . Would George Floyd be alive today had he not of resisted arrest?

Now an entire nations political structure has shown their lack of backbone by failing to stand up for themselves and the citizens of this Country. The cop that killed George Floyd needs to be charged with negligent homicide, along with every witness that allowed it to happen. And, every back-sliding politician that has failed to stand up for the Country needs to be voted from office as soon as possible.

This Country allows the playing of the race card far too easily and those doing so are the racist in our society . Quit being racist. We can all get along, and all lives matter.

Another Headline

Here’s another “head line says” story. Headlines say ” Black Lives Matter Is the Largest Movement in US History”

And it appears to be, but what is it really? Black Lives Matter was started by three Black women whose addenda was far different than what it has become today. The problem I see is the integrity of these women.

I see the potential for a lot of illegal activity. Black Lives Matter was not at all what these women expected to happen. George Floyd’s death and social media within minutes gave life to Black Lives Matter and started it’s growth to what it is today. As it stands right now Black Lives Matter is a multi-million dollar non-profit racist organization that in the past couple months has had millions donated to it. Is that money going to serve the Black people in some way? Most Black Organizations fail to realize is it is not racism the cause, but economics. Folks that reside in that part of town are treated poorly regardless the color of their skin. And look around folks, that area is not exclusive to the Blacks anymore.

As a matter of fact, the premis for Black Lives Matter is, Black people are treated more poorly than whites by the police. This is not true. BLM uses the entire country to come to the conclusion that Black People make up about 13 percent of the population. But Black people do not reside in the entire US. Black people are only a significant population of about 12 States, ranging from 23 to 65 % of of the population of those states.

Is Black Lives Matter a racist organization? They had the opportunity to be the hero of the day, simply by using “All Lives Matter” instead of “Black Lives Matter” To many of the other races, the fact that Black Lives Matter remains their slogan, they are considered racist. You tell a pregnant mother that Black Lives Matter more than their child matters you will likely find an argument. To many “Black Lives Matter” is more racist than any other term used today. “Who are you that your life more important or matter more than anyone else’s.”

An issue not discussed by many is how did George Floyd end up on the ground? Did he fall down? Did he just decide to lay down on his own? Or, did he resist the officer trying to arrest him? Granted, he should not have lost his life in this situation, but should he not take responsibility for his actions? Do not think I am excusing the officer with his knee in Floyds back. Once the cuffs were on, the officer is responsible for any harm to the arrested person. I do however wonder what kind of society sits watching a tragedy such as this and do nothing? Did nobody think to tell the officer that he was causing harm. The officers standing by that assisted, why didn’t one of them step up? But everyone who stood idly by watching George Floyd loss of life shares the guilt of his death.

Ignorance In Politics


At Least 11 Cities Are Defunding Their Police Departments

Did anyone vote these people into office? I’ll bet they get voted out of office fairly soon. Does it seem to you that we are in a Batman script in which the criminal masterminds are all at a meeting discussing how to eliminate interference by police as they rob and pillage.

Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Washington DC, Baltimore, Portland,  Philadelphia; Hartford, Conn.; Norman, Oklahoma; and Salt Lake City all have cut millions from their Law Enforcement budgets and reduced the amount of officers to be employed. I hate to say this, but are you people stuck on stupid, or what?

Allow me to explain the ignorance of our political and government leaders. First, there is no data to support any claims of racism by police. There is no data that supports the claims that Blacks are treated more poorly and killed more by police than the other races. The claim that Blacks make up about 13 percent of the US population but are killed by police more often than anyone else is a misrepresentation of the data. Blacks make up about 13 percent of the US Population, but only have a significant amount of people living in about 12 states, in which Blacks are from 23 to 65 percent of the population. And in these States, Whites are still killed almost twice as much as Blacks by police. Go ahead, do the research.

Now let’s add the rest of the game in play. The death of George Floyd was unfortunate, and un-necessary. But, for every George Floyd death a person of another race has reached the same demise. The facts are simple . . . Everybody gets treated like shit by the police. Add a racial organization to the game and you have three women of questionable integrity that just made millions in donations, based entirely on lies. And now . . . these same lies are being used to defund our police.

Frankly, I am disgusted. You don’t think there was a more intelligent way to handle this? For ONE, de-funding is stupid. Provision of additional funding to provide additional training to the community teaching them how to comply with police instead of getting hurt would be a better alternative. I cannot think of a single time that I have seen police put a man on the ground to restrain him, that wasn’t due to the persons resisting. Spend money teaching people to quit resisting could be another alternative.

Decision Making 101

How About We Learn To Accept Responsibility For Our Own Actions…

Think about the things you do that are simply, fucked up. Seriously, give it some thought. Do you think any of us want to put up with your shit? You act out all over the place, making people nervous, upset, and afraid. And, you don’t care. Sooner or later somebody drops a dime on you and next thing you know the local police are on scene

Now, you believe that there are witnesses and these police will not hurt you. Are you in for a rude awakening? You see,when these police show up on the scene, one of them is going to approach you and likely tell you to do or stop doing something. This is where you have the ability to demonstrate intelligence, or lack of such. But this decision is all yours, nobody else makes this decision for you. But maybe this decision has already been made for you.

Did somebody while you were young tell you not to listen to police? Did somebody tell you that it is cool to act like an ass or argue with police? If somebody did, then they have told you wrong. And it can and will affect both your wallet and your health. You see, in this kind of situation the whole world is looking on to see what the cop is going to do. To the rest of the world you are suddenly the victim. But you’re not the victim. Everybody that had to put up with your shit to this point, as well as the cops trying to deal with you now, are the victims. You are the offender.

Did you take an aggressive posture to the officer? Did you have a weapon? Had you recently committed an act of violence that the officers were responding to. Did the officer tell you to stop doing something? Did the officer tell you to drop your weapon? Does an officer have to wait until you hurt him before he takes action? The answers to these questions are demonstrative of your intelligence also. Because the intelligent person complied with the officer and knows the officer does not have to wait for you to hurt him.

But, it’s not cool to let them arrest you. . . If you committed the crime, who gives a shit about how cool you are. You probably weren’t cool in the first place. But, if you didn’t do the crime . . . Why fight? Why not let them take you to jail Let them put you through it all the way to your Attorneys office where you take them to Court for their misdeeds? It’s much easier to fight a legal battle over false arrest if you are not in a full body cast. And, getting paid for their violations is far better than getting hurt or killed

The point I am trying to make is if YOU make the right decision when dealing with police,more often than not things will turn out okay. But if you choose to do otherwise, accept the responsibility for your actions and quit acting like a victim. People assume that the police can or should go fist to cuffs when dealing with a combative person. People assume that an officer should engage in hand to hand combat rather than use their sidearm. If you have never filled a position of employ that has you working behind a badge, are you qualified to make an assessment on the officers actions? The question you should be asking is if the person the cops have to deal with complied with instructions of the officer. If he did not comply, it was his choice. Quit sticking up for somebody else’s bad decision. What would your decision have been under the same circumstances?

My First Temp Taking

I visited my local Kaiser Hospital this afternoon to pick up my prescription and as I approached the entrance I am greeted by a row of portable sinks to wash my hands before entering the hospital. Having done that I continued into the hospital entrance where I was greeted by a large fella in hospital garb whio asked me had I experienced any flu like symptoms. Subsequent to my responding with an answer of “no” he advised me he was going to take my temperature. As I was in the process of removing my pants, my temp taking gent was frantically stopping me asking me to remove my motorcycle helmet. (Hey, he didn’t specify where he wanted to take my temp at. I just assumed . . .)

Upon removing my helmet, he draws this small gun from I don’t even know and aims it square at my forehead, and I freeze. A moment later he smiles and says “perfectly normal.”

Wtf, perfectly normal my ass! I just wet myself . . . PERFECTLY NORMAL!

Have you yet to enjoy having your temperature taken to demonstrate if you are infected with the corona-virus or not? It’s not nearly as scary as I play it up to have been. And it is comforting to know that at the time my temperature taken I was not believed to be infected. But, then I ventured into the hospital. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE IN HOSPITALS? They have SICK people in hospitals, not just one or two either. They have an overabundance of people suffering from one ailment or another, cared for by another overabundance of medical folks that are breathing the same air as those people that is sick. Shit, I know if some of that crap jumps on me, at my age I’m gonna die.

Well if I gotta go . . . ‘Mr Pharmacist? Might I have a bottle of those little blue pills please? You see, if I gotta go I prefer it be while suffering from the adverse 4 hour reaction . . . Is 40 of these enough? What do you mean, there’s no pheromones in these to make me more attractive to women?

Well as long as these medical folks have these funny little guns, I know where to stop by for my temperature to be taken to see If the corona-virus has got me or not. Today, in a whole bunch of America a lot of people are concerned about the possibility of becoming infected with the corona-virus. One of the primary symptoms of Covid-19 (corona-virus) is the infected person having a fever. Well if I don’t have a fever, but do have 40 of these little blue pills . . .

Please take the Corona-Virus seriously. Wash your hands, wear a mask, and watch social distancing, please! If you are sick, stay home and call the hospital for instructions on what you should do. And, DO NOT go out running around passing the virus around to everyone. The only thing worse than catching the Corona-Virus, is catching it from some dip-shit that neglects the cautions from the virus like it doesn’t matter.

Keep in mind, that you can have the corona-virus and while showing no symptoms yourself can infect others. This means that while you don’t think it true, you can have the virus and kill others without even knowing it. Nothing about this is cool. Let’s stop this virus so we can be rid of these fucking face masks. I wear glasses and spend most my day trying to look through a fog, it SUCKS! Besides, if it wasn’t for TV, I’ve probably forgotten what a beautiful woman looks like. Hey don’t blame me if I cannot remember your face before the mask. It would help though . . . if you were not wearing a mask with jaws of a beast of some sort!

Damn! Did anybody have any idea that the masks could impact the effectiveness of these little blue pills? LET’s STOP THIS VIRUS!
