Are We All So Unaware . . .

I was reading an article which read that the woman insulted her deceased father calling him racist. No, I didn’t continue reading that article because it suddenly occurred to me, “What else did she expect of her father?”

I’m elderly, which means dinosaurs roamed the earth up until a week before I was born. Not really, but the generation before mine was really racist. My grandfather and yours regardless of skin color was absolutely racist. Why? Because society at that time required it. Interracial relationships of any sort were not very popular and the idea of a romantic relationship would not make it past the idea stage.

My fathers generation brought with it the racism from their parents but found a portion of acceptance and tolerance between the races. It was the age of segregation and the KKK but the entire population was not diehard racist. By the end of my parents generation the “N” word was still commonly in use and a society that claimed equality of man, made efforts to become such with only a small step forward.

Along came my generation, and with an angry parentage due to riots, affirmative action, and desegregation my generation was wrought with racial discord from every angle. But with my generation came hope. By reaching the age of adulthood most of us had learned that we had to do better. We had to learn acceptance and tolerance and actually believe in the idea of equality. Many of us did just that, but not enough. Racism still flourished throughout my lifetime and into my children’s generation. How did we fail?

The first significant failure was brought about by our own government. You see, our government is full of idiots trying to do right the wrong way. Affirmative Action did one thing. It took jobs from qualified White men, giving those jobs to unqualified men of color. It doesn’t matter that a small amount of fairness or equality resulted from it because it brought about a completely new reason for hatred between the races. Nobody cared that taking from one race and giving to another race regardless the impact to those displaced by such action, would create hostility and furtherance of racism. But from this came the intended ability to work together and show respect for our fellow man. Still not enough but moving in the right direction.

One of the biggest road-blocks we faced was the lack of racial acceptance from the people of color. Most people of color to this day have not yet accepted the extended olive branch from White people. Then along comes a database compiled by the Washington Post which paints a picture of a complete racism with Black people being subject to abuse and killings by police at a higher percentage than White people. What this database fails to do is demonstrate the 13 percent Black population nation-wide was not the population percentages of the areas the claimed abuse came from. Black populations in the individual cities ranged from 27 to 69 percent and demonstrates more Whites killed by police every year. What is a higher concern is the use of the database by government, educators, politicians, and clergy without actually researching the database data for accuracy. It’s quite easy to understand, Black people make up 13 percent of the population nation-wide, but there isn’t any Black people in Tiny Town whatever State U.S.A. this means these Black people are not 13 percent everywhere, resulting in a much higher percentage of Black people someplace else. Use of the corrected population percentages demonstrates a far different picture. The problem is almost all Blacks as well as a significant portion of Whites believe the 13 percent lie.

Moving forward to about a year ago, a cop negligent in his responsibilities, kills George Floyd while in custody. The Country, both Black and White armed with the 13 percent lie start rioting in the streets nation-wide. City streets are filled with protesters of all colors rioting, looting, and destroying all they can. Prior to this event an organization was formed to support a Gay-Black athlete was formed. This organization was not formed to represent the Black populace in any way. But being in the right place, at the right time, Black Lives Matter is there when the riots began and Corporate America in fear of their lives dumps millions of dollars donating to the coffers of Black Lives Matter. This was not a planned event, but it is proof that having the right name at the right time can make a couple of Black Activists very rich. Corporate America suffering from rectal-cranial inversion believes they have done something to support the Black man has done nothing but toss their cash to be used as personal money by the founders of Black Lives Matter. Most of America believes that Black Lives Matter intended to provide support for the Black man. Black Lives Matter have yet to do anything but escalate racial tensions and fill their pockets with donated money building their personal wealth.

Another problem arises as America, tired of abusive cops scream “Defund The Police,” which may not be an all-together bad idea. Spineless politicians jump on the band-wagon and cities across America start cutting funding for their Police agencies. Interest in employment in Law Enforcement drops to lower than an all-time low, crime starts running rampant nation-wide as the criminal element has nothing to fear. Law Enforcement Officers treated like the enemy retire early or just quit leaving every police agency under-staffed, some by hundreds of officers. Today in America no street is safe as criminals take over the streets committing crimes, violent crimes, everywhere. This escalation of criminal activity leads to many retailers closing their doors for good as they do not believe police has the ability to protect them.

And yet, our political leadership believes the way to solve the problem is to give to one race by taking from another race. Government nation-wide is doing money giveaways in the form of guaranteed incomes, housing, and even employment excluding White people. Does anybody see the racial implications of this? Instead of our leaders correcting the issues necessary, they create new cause for racial divide. Apparently we have not yet learned enough from our past errors to be able to fix this.

I think I know what needs to be done. First eliminate any organization that has a race as part of it’s name. All these organizations are is furtherance of racism and people making profit off racism. None of these organizations want to eliminate racism, racism is how they make their money.

Then look at all government and give them a choice, color-blind or find another job. And then, do not give any service, monitory benefit, or any other offering based upon skin color. Only give these items to those in true need and give to those in true need.

Equality is not so hard to achieve. Simply mature beyond skin color and enjoy being color-blind.

Let’s Add Another FAVORITE to the New Racism . . .

San Francisco’s Mayor finds a way to create another rift in the City’s racial divide by giving guaranteed incomes for Transgender People. “San Francisco launches guaranteed income program for transgender people” is the original story in the News.

And this is where it starts! Don’t give resources to those in need by degree of need, Just give to people of one group while the rest go hungry or homeless. Let’s see how many people of need suffer while this group is protected. When did Government get so damn stupid? All they have done is create hatred towards transgender people. Then they expand on their idea with more?

They expand their scope of people qualified for this financial give away:

According to its website, the program will prioritize the following demographics for enrollment: “transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and intersex people who are also Black, indigenous, or people of color (BIPOC), experiencing homelessness, living with disabilities and chronic illnesses, youth and elders, monolingual Spanish-speakers, and those who are legally vulnerable such as TGI people who are undocumented, engaging in survival sex trades, ​or are formerly incarcerated.”

DO YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT THERE ARE NO NEEDY WHITE PEOPLE IN SAN FRANCISCO? That is what it says. Look above, they have managed to list everybody except Whites. People incarcerated and even undocumented people can be considered and manage not to include the word “White” anywhere in their demographic. I would love to believe that San Francisco has nothing but the “well to do” living without problems within the confines of the City. But sadly I cannot believe that. Can you really visualize a committee meeting where the members discuss how to exclude White people? And you don’t feel it wrong? If you don’t think there are just as many needy White people as there are others, then you need to educate yourself a little bit. Sure there may be 10 percent of one race needy amounting to a significant number, but 2 percent of White people amounts to a far higher number than others.

So the City of San Francisco has created another issue that will cause disharmony on our streets. They could of done the smart thing and put somebody in their government that is interested in stopping racism/favoritism, and ignorance in the street. Perhaps somebody that is smart enough to recognize need beyond skin color or sex? There is absolutely nothing today that should be given to anybody based on the color of skin or the spelling of a name. and/or sexual preference. Every organization that uses skin color as part of its name should be run out of town on a rail. These organizations make their living off of racial divide, yet do nothing to stop it. And any money, housing, assistance, or benefit to be offered should be distributed based upon need. And, if the responsible parties distributing such cannot mature enough to act as color-blind, they need to be unemployed immediately. As a matter of fact anybody in any government employ that cannot do their jobs less use of skin color, needs to seek employ elsewhere.

There is a way to fix this. And it starts by practicing what we preach of men being equal. Nobody should receive anything over somebody more needy. Nobody should receive anything based upon skin color. And no politician that supports doing so is acting for the betterment of their community. I had so much hope the Bay Area was going to do things right but see nothing but disappointment from acts of our politicians. It is simple folks! ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, treat them as such.

NANCY PELOSI HUSBAND ATTACK SUSPECT DAVID DEPAPE PLEAD

Damn, I Wish I Weren’t White . . .

A Washington Examiner headline, “Poll shows hiring managers discriminating against white men” caught my eye this morning. It comes at a time when being a White man seems a little unpopular. But is it fair? If the Black percentage of the population is around 13 percent, doesn’t that mean they should have about 13 percent of the jobs?

In the 2015-2016 television season, 74.6 percent of roles for cable scripted shows went to white actors, whilst 13.3 percent went to black actors, and just 2.6 percent to Asian actors.” Okay, this seems about right, or does it?

The majority of TV newsroom employees in the United States in 2020 were white, with African American staff and Hispanic and Latino employees making up less than 25 percent of the total. The survey projected that the share of Hispanic and Latino employees would increase slightly in 2021 but the forecasted percentage remains under 13 percent.” Somebody works with the same math I do.

  
Employed persons by detailed occupation, sex, race, and Hispanic origin <-This link goes to the actual data page


  Officials and administrators, public administration..............................      720     52.6      13.0         
    Administrators, protective services............................................       54     25.3      13.3    Inspectors and compliance officers, except construction............................      247     36.4      14.4

And, I can keep going down the list. The end column at the far right is the percentage of Black people in that occupation. Don't take my word for it, follow the link above to go to the actual data page. My point is Black people actually populate our workforce in some very good numbers. Add professional sports players and entertainers figures to this and I believe you will find that Black people have a bunch of the good paying jobs, exceeding the 13 percent  discussed above.

Now, we go and turn the apple-cart upside down because folks out there are making their living off of racism telling people that are too lazy a bunch of lies and unfairly taking jobs from the White man. I find this offensive as fuck!

I have never taken any opportunity away from anybody. Never owned a slave. Don't care what color your skin is. And, I have never taken the food off another mans table based on the color of his skin. Corporate America is afraid off the Black man, so instead of doing the right thing and ensuring that their hiring practices are color-blind, they turn around and do the opposite and create a new racial issue.

Listen up folks . . . We are where we are today because folks are making money off racism, and we keep letting them do it. It's not hard to recognize men as equals and if you can mature enough to be color-blind most issues will resolve themselves. Folks out there that can't mature to that level, are the problem. They come in all colors and they aren't helping nobody, but themselves at our expense. Corporations, Politicians, Government is so busy trying to make new racial issues that they can't see they are the problem. If they would have treated men as equals a long time ago, we would be in a much better place today . . . 

Father Kills 2 Year-old Son . . .

That isn’t the actual headline of the story. But, it is true. The headline read: N.C. Boy, 2, Finds Loaded Gun in Front Seat of Truck and Kills Himself, and Father Faces Charges . And the father should face charges, murder chargers. It’s the same story over and over again. Somebody doesn’t secure their weapon properly, and someone gets killed because of it. The true problem in this case as is in many, a child gets dead. You have to ask yourself, what kind of jackass parent leaves a loaded gun where a 2 year-old kid can get access to it? While we are asking questions, why was he even carrying a gun in the first place?

I think we are seeing a pattern developing here. Parents cannot handle being parents so they have found a way to eliminate children. No, that is likely not the case. But can you think of any reason to endanger your children that qualifies as important or threatening enough that you need carry a gun?

Guns are a necessary evil in many of our lives. But the necessity has never included the killing of your own child due to gun owner negligence Yet it seems as though we hear it almost daily. With gun ownership comes responsibility. If you own it, you are responsible for any mis-use of it. If you are stupid enough to not secure it and it gets used in a mass shooting or even ends in the death of your own child, you are the one that made it happen, you are the one needs to be charged with committing the crime.

And I hope they throw the fucking book at you!

The Halloween, that wasn’t . . .

Have we already lost to those who wish us a lack of fun and lost imagination? Have they sufficiently beat us down so far that we cannot go into our city streets and have fun anymore? What has happened to the land that I love? What has happened to the people that used to live in this Country that enjoyed the party, the costumes, and the thrill of having our hearts beating in fear of something or someone hiding in the dark?

You may not have missed Halloween last night. If you were lucky and the Halloweens’ found you, tell em I miss em.

Wait, what the hell am I supposed to do with all this candy? I am diabetic, I cannot eat all this (munch, munch, burp . . .) candy! Diabetic Coma, here I come. You know, I only bought candy that I liked. Stuff like “Reese Peanut Butter Cups,” “3 Musketeers,” and “HoHo’s.” And, I bought gobs of it. I can swim in Peanut Butter and Chocolate for the next week if I want.

Man, I hope Turkey Day and Christmas doesn’t pass me by . . . Oh Santa?

Wait! I know somebody had a Halloween! So long as there be ex-wives and mothers-in-law, there be witches!

The State of America . . .

I read an article in a news publication today in which people were asked to say what they thought of the state of America today using one word. Let it suffice to say, there were very few favorable responses and no visible argument to the negativity noted. Why? What has happened to America? Has America become both financially and morally bankrupt? Has the Pandemic destroyed the heart of America? Has racial divide and failure of us to educate our young brought about the end of peace on our streets? What exactly has happened to America?

The Pandemic brought about a lot of loss. Family, friends, and neighbors suddenly were sick or dead. We were unable to be in close contact with others which for many is a human need. When we did go out into the community again it waws with a mask covering our face. Our neighbors and friends fought over this requirement in public stores and streets largely because of misinformation passed on social media. Dis-trust of our Government grew significantly day-by-day, and nothing could be done to stop the downhill trend not to believe in Government. This dis-trust continues today because our Government to date has failed to identify the source of the Covid-19 virus that almost killed a Nation that has done nothing to discover the reasons why.

A Nation of unemployed supported by Government with far too much time on their hands as Pandemic restrictions eased allowed the growth of criminal activity on our streets, followed by the unfortunate death of George Floyd while in police custody on a public street brought racial tensions to the top of our Nations issues as well as the crippling of our police departments across the Nation. Presently, crime has increased to such a degree that our city streets are unsafe even during daylight hours Police Officers disheartened by cries of the public to “defund the police” and the inability of Government to acquire enough recruits to fill the required police officer employees, has left police departments unable to meet the challenges of fighting crime in our neighborhoods to the extreme that store closures are necessary due to rampant theft.

Inmates that were released from our prisons and jails control our streets with the help of local street thugs that even when law enforcement catches them, are back on the streets within hours leaving the community living in fear. People that had previously lived a life of lawful living suddenly found the only way to prosper in life was to take what you wanted, has begun to do so. Even in the best of neighborhoods, crime riddles the streets and fear of “home-invasion” is real While it has in the past been offensive to declare “martial law” to protect the community, may become necessity in the near future.

Failure of “gun owners” to properly secure their weapons continues to be a primary factor in many school mass shootings, and other shootings of our children. And, no matter how loud it is hollered people still cannot hear our pleas to “please secure your guns.” Our Government still fails to prosecute gun owners for the mis-use of their guns by others, even when negligence by the gun owner is obvious continues. Parents as well as children fear school days and wait for the dreaded call of an incident at their local schools. On the adult venue, people no longer feel safe attending events such as concerts, fairs, or even movies.

I have to stop writing this. The negativity compiled by simply writing this thus far, hurts. Where is this headed? How and to what degree are we going to have to go to defend ourselves? This is not the America I grew up in nor the America our children should live in. You see, the previous paragraphs written are just the tips of the ice-berg. I could write for days on this topic and not repeat the same concern twice. I’m unsure of whom to point a finger at to blame for the state of America today, without the finger eventually pointing back at myself, as in all of us. And to make things even worse, I cannot think of a single thing to say good on this topic . . .

Can you? Feel free to comment below.

The Headline Read . . .

Today’s news story of interest has a headline that says: “Florida Sergeant in Hot Water for Tweet Calling Black People One of ‘America’s Biggest Problems’.” This statement is one of the most true statements in the news today.

Black people ARE one of America’s biggest problems today, and a problem that is not a simple fix for anyone to resolve. And the fact that all of America jumps on the band-wagon of anyone making claim of anything negative without checking the information out for validity before they follow like sheep. People believe America has become more knowledgeable of things due to social media when the opposite is true. The only way social media can be beneficial to anyone is if the lies are not given credibility because we are too lazy to research the information finding the truth. We are so prone to accepting negative claims about anything that quite often social media accuses, tries, convicts, and seeks hanging until dead, dead, dead . . . On false information, before an investigation of any sort is conducted. And, the eagerness to follow false information has become ridiculous.

Now, nothing said above has any negative statement against any race, sex, religion, or otherwise is offensive. Raise your hand if you think I made a racial statement or untrue statement above. Alright, now count.

Do you think you are really knowledgeable about the issues of People of Color in America today? Answer these simple questions:

  1. What is the percentage of America are Black people?
  2. Black Lives Matter is an organization that was formed for the betterment of All Black people in America?
  3. Corporate America fears the Black Man?
  4. Where can you find the database that claims Black people are approximately 13% of the U.S. population?
  5. Are you truly informed and knowledgeable on the issues relevant to Black people in America today?
  6. Is there any program/solution in place today that is not in furtherance of racism?
  7. Black people are killed by police more than any other race?

No, the above isn’t a poll. I am not recording your answers. There will not be an additional test later in this session. But, how many of these questions do you believe you have the correct answer? You don’t even have to leave this site to see if you are right or not regarding your answers. Just read the information presented on this web site. But, DO NOT accept it as truth unless you are willing to validate the information by other means.

They Should Charge These Parents With Murder!

I know I may be sounding a little extreme but give it a moments thought. What better way to get rid of you children, then to leave 3 young children home alone with a loaded shotgun? As a matter of fact wouldn’t that also make a great lead-in for a Horror Movie. But this isn’t some movie theme, it’s real. Now, one child will have to live the nightmare of killing their sibling, for the rest of his life. In the news article a Texas 10-year-old boy has shot his 8-year-old brother with a shotgun, killing him. Their 13-year-old brother was there and called 911.

Think of the drama these lives will have to deal with. The 13-year-old will forever believe himself responsible for his brothers death because we all know we are responsible for our younger siblings. Then 10-year-old will forever carry the guilt because he is the one that shot the 8-year-old. But who is actually responsible for the death of this boy and the harm it does to the other two boys?

In case you are having difficulty pointing the finger at the guilty party in this case . . . It’s the adult that brought the gun into the home, and left it loaded and unsecured for children to gain access to it. I know somebody out there is going to say, “They’ve suffered enough, they have lost a child.” 3 children’s lives are destroyed and you think they should go unpunished because their negligence is the cause of it?

Charge them with MURDER and treat it like they murdered somebody else’s child. Just think, all they had to do was secure the weapon where the children would not have access to it, or unload it, or add a trigger lock. A $25.00 trigger lock or putting it where a kid can’t get to it, and an 8-year-old boy would be alive right now.

Oh, a link to the news story https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/ten-year-old-boy-accidentally-shoots-and-kills-eight-year-old-brother-with-shotgun-in-texas/ar-AA13pgex?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=b8d84143da404e58bc8ba9de87389350

Let’s Play “What If’s”

Sounds stupid doesn’t it? Yes, it is. But I am sitting here at my desk watching Asian Comedians describe being the only Asian amongst a group of White People. They describe being given nick-names vs. use of their real names deciding that the use of the nick-name racist. There has been numerous truly racist names given to Asian people as real names. Soldiers during the Viet Nam war were particularly cruel in giving names to their illegitimate children. Names like: Dum Phuk, Do Ho, Lil Dic, and a whole bunch more were to become part of American History, and cause of much abuse to the children throughout most of their lives That was racial and offensive. But those were real names.

Alot of people are given nick-names, for many different reasons. I am guilty of using nick-names for friends with names I could not pronounce properly. Not a single time was it intended to be offensive.

Being the only person of your race amongst a whole bunch of another race can be very stressful and everybody that raises this topic tell it as them being the only of their race with a bunch of White People. I don’t think I have ever heard a story on this topic in which the only was with an other-than-White group of people or a lone White person amongst a group of another race.

The reason I ask this question is because I believe that people that claim all this racism, never look at the shoe on the other foot. Have they ever witnessed how a group of their race treat others of a different race? I know I have walked into a room of another race only to have them start talking in their own language, about me like I wasn’t there. What usually followed was comments between each other that were obviously derogatory about me. It is uncomfortable and sometimes threatening at times.

Anybody else have a story to tell. Keep it real!

Candace & Kanye . . .

Why is it when people speak truth, they get treated poorly? It isn’t because they are wrong. It may make them less popular, but they still are telling the truth shouldn’t we listen? Didn’t we listen when they had a different opinion? Not only did we listen, but we marched on their opinion. If their opinion was the popular opinion we would listen and follow their lead. Don’t fret, I have the answer to these questions and more.

The reason we don’t listen to or follow the less desirable opinion is because we as a society are a bunch of sheep following somebody that may not even know what they are talking about. And most of us are too lazy to do the research to seek the truth. I realize that this is not a popular opinion but it is still the truth. We believe we are so enlightened by the information provided by the Internet, but if you are following somebody else’s lie or misinformation? Go ahead, keep following like sheep . . .

Allow me top give you an example. Most believe Black Lives Matter was formed to represent the Black race. It was not! I know I could give you the answer to this, but would you believe me? George Floyd is likely rolling over in his grave with Kanye’s drug accusation. But, after you’ve destroyed city after city did you ever wonder how he ended up on the ground with a cops knee on his neck? Under no circumstance should he have died while restrained by police, but how did he end up on the ground in the first place? These are the questions you need ask if you seek truth. Most people believe that the Washington Post’s database that claims that Black People are 13% of the population and get treated so unfairly by police and others based upon that percentage gives a true representation of the topic. It doesn’t but the Washington Post has done nothing to clarify their claims. Although nation-wide Black People make up about 13 percent of the population, in many of our major cities the Black population is 33 to 60 percent.

It is easy to follow somebody else’s stupidity, but that only serves to make you just as stupid. Research before you follow, its the smart thing to do.
