“And they are lucky that what black people are looking for is equality and not revenge”

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  I showed a few days ago a John Oliver clip about this woman, Kimberly Jones, explaining why she thinks vadalising is valid.  She took the words out of my mouth!  The whole world is watching.  I hope you’re listening too!

The late author James Baldwin wrote a book titled “The Fire Next Time”.  If we the people don’t change the white supremacist status quo “this time”, there may not be a next time.

Black Is Beautiful.

Today’s Police Think They’re Judge, Jury & Executioner

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Since I’m off Twitter, might as well get over my writer’s block.

I don’t hate cops but I think some of them are of the wrong mind set to be cops.  Especially the ones who’ve deemed themselves Judge, Jury & Executioner (J J & E) on the streets of America.  Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin thought he was “J J & E” or maybe he’s just a garden variety murderer with a badge and gun.  Some images of American police officers behavior during the Black Lives Matter protest were appalling.  You can tell the cops were just waiting to “set it off#” to crack skulls of protesters.  [#start a fight; get into it.]

Rubber bullet shooting cop!

There’s another movement in America to either dismantle or defund the police departments.  We should all know the police will never really go away.

Regardless of what happens, if you can just stay away from, and/or don’t talk to cops!

Don't talk to cops!

How to talk to police. Don’t. (Photo not mine)

America Doesn’t Care About Women

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Ha-ha, long time no see.  It’s been awhile since I posted anything original.  Hey, I do re-blog other writers.  Anyway, I want to today talk about the Day of Reckoning with…SEXUAL MISCONDUCT!  Ooooh, taboo!  You women who are reading this…it’s time for you to MAN UP!  [No pun intended!]

Wonder Woman? You? Not!

Wonder Woman you are not!

Has America, (the Almighty U.S.A.), ever cared about women?

“IT” never cared about Native American women, who were exterminated.

“IT” never cared about Mexican women, who are used as cheap coolie labor for American industry.

“IT” never cared about Chinese women, who came after Chinese men who were used as cheap coolie labor to build the American railroad.

“IT” never ever cared about Black women, who were used as slave labor.

So, does America care about white womanhood?  The answer is easy…nope!  No!  Nada!  Even when white males kill to protect white womanhood, nobody cares about women.

Since the early 20th century when women, (and their male allies), took to marching in the streets for women’s suffrage they were brutalized in those streets by angry white men.  (Who else could it have been?  People of color had no projected power.)  Violence is a device of projection.

It’s depressing to think that all social groups, ethnic groups or societies are violently patriarchal.  Some social groups are matriarchal or egalitarian…some.  But I’m talking about only America.  America is unique.  It’s not mono-ethnic like most countries.  I’m not discussing Middle Eastern, Mediterranean or Indo-European societies.  (They don’t seem to care about women either.)  Most males in most societies will use violence to project and maintain the patriarchal folklore.

What is a female and egalitarian male to do?  (Especially now in this Day of Reckoning with SEXUAL MISCONDUCT.)

So, what I’m trying to get at without beating around the bush is, women are going to have to get VIOLENT!  The males are gonna get violent to you!  But I think you already know that.  [Remember the movie, ‘The Burning Bed‘?]  Women’s suffrage or right’s are not going to be won by putting on “velvet gloves”.  If women want to stop sexual misconduct, it’s time to throw punches.  If or when you do, expect to get punched back!  If women decide to shoot, you will get shot back at and/or you’ll get incarcerated.  Why do you think males carry military assault weapons?  Angry disaffected white males don’t like losing or coming in second to women.  [WATCH YOUR BACK!]  Those angry males may shoot and kill Black males to protect white womanhood but white women will be intimidated “ad nauseam”!  [STOP COVERING UP FOR THEM!]  A single white female discussing or “calling out” sexual misconduct is not enough.  I don’t think anybody ever listens to a Black woman “calling out” anything.  Nope!  Women…all women of all persuasions will have to speak up from a “whisper to a scream” to complete this Day of Reckoning.

One person DOESN’T make a difference.

[The one who does not know about it may walk over it.  The one who knows about it will dig it up and eat it.]

This could be the beginning of a NEW women’s folklore.

The American Killing Fields

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians.  [No exclamation point.]  I’m nowadays under the impression that the Un-United States of America are becoming a modern day killing fields.  Black people are getting shot and killed on any given day.  Police unions and lawyers are making it illegal to video record police doing their job we, taxpayers, are paying for.

Video recordings don’t seem to be a deterrent!  Police and “stand your ground” freaks can kill with impunity!  The whole world is watching?  What difference does it make?  Who watches the watchers?  Apparently we can’t!

The Talented 10th Law Of Averages

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Wow!  It’s been a while since I wrote anything original.  At least I re-blogged.  Reading is fundamental, right?  Alright, time to get to the nitty gritty.

I’ve been thinking about Black America’s so-called “Talented 10th”.  If you know anything about William Edward Burghardt “W. E. B.” Du Bois, then you see where that term comes from.  It’s been over 100 years since Mr. Du Bois wrote about the Talented 10th or as it should be called nowadays is the “Black Talented”.  I would like to think after 100+ years we would have more than 10 percent of the Black population that’s considered ‘talented’.

If Du Bois called one part of Black America the ‘Talented 10th’, what was the other 90% called?  Would it be the “Least Talented”?  When I thought about this scenario, you realize that Affirmative Action is “only” for the Black Talented.  How does Affirmative Action help the Least Talented?  How the hell can 10% of the Black Talented up-lift the other 90% of a population?  This is where I started thinking about the Law of Averages.  [The law of averages is a layman’s term for a belief that the statistical distribution of outcomes among members of a small sample must reflect the distribution of outcomes across the population as a whole.]  I don’t see how a small part of Black America can help a greater portion beyond their own small talented numbers.

Consider this;  when Napoleon invaded Russia in 1812 he lost about 10% of his Grand Army.  And with that he lost that war!  I read some ago the reason he lost was because his Grande Army became demoralized after the loss of soldiers.  They probably had Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) too.

Now, fast forward to now, the 21st century, and I keep hearing about how Black college students, the Black Talented (10th), having PTSD and other traumas due to white micro-aggression.  I think when it comes to the war on micro-aggression on Black students, I don’t see Black America winning a war against anything or anybody!

P.S.  Will the Talented 10th “pick at” dead people OR “pick up” where other people leave off?

P.S.S.  The Black Talented should never let anybody see them cry.  A.K.A. whiny crybabies.

O.K. that’s it for now…until neXt time…

America: Communist Little Helper

2 Comments

Back again today for another thought stream.  Wake up world zobopians!

America is [and have always been] helping Communist around the world.  [Soviet Russia, Vietnam, China, plus most other Marxist regimes.]  The American government have been moving heaven and earth to bring more trade [and trade secrets] to Communist China.  [It won’t end with IBM selling off its computer division to become Lenovo in China.]  Remember when Yahoo and Cisco tried to sell technology to prop-up the communist status quo?  Rupert Murdoch [FOX Corp] has been doing that for years so he could sell TV to Chinese viewers.  But to do that you have to give in to the communist rules.  What?

Even merchants like Wal-Mart are helping too.  They out-source manufacturing jobs and other forms of loss-of-jobs only to help keep these communist regimes in power.  Russian communist revolutionaries long ago gladly took Capitalist money.  That means the Cold War was a joke.

Just resently Lenovo was caught and accused of putting adware on their laptop computers.  My opinion is, China will succeed where V.I. Lenin’s Soviet Russia failed.

A link for you check out about the Cold War pretense.

War On Poverty Is Phony Pretense

2 Comments

Hello fellow world zobopians!  I haven’t posted in a while because I didn’t think I had anything important to say…until now.

The War on Poverty is a War on Poor People

The war on poverty never intended to be a war at all.  It was mostly a painfully timid and overly self-conscious assault on the consequences of human misery.  The war on poverty was [and probably still is] a vehicle for the perpetuation of the view that poverty was traceable to individual shortcomings on the part of poor people.  People are poor because they have no money or power to negotiate with.

When the poor eat the rich, what will rich people taste like?

GOP No Longer Party of Lincoln

Leave a comment

Hello zobopians! I’m all for freedom of politics and all but sometimes you have to “kick out the JAMS!”

In today’s rant I’m going to warn the world of fundamentalism. Political and religious. The G.O.P. (Grand Old Party) of today is not legitimate. The Republican party today belongs to the theocrats and the phony sanctimonious shameless power-seekers. Fear and bigotry are their watch words. You’ll hear a Republican claim that they are the party of Abraham Lincoln. Lie! The Republican party no longer adheres to its abolitionist founding, which was the pursuit of freedom for all its citizens. The G.O.P. has become a fundamentalist political party that pursues the restriction of freedom for certain members of our society like women and people of color, as well as the L.G.B.T. community.

I guess this is what happens when the next generation doesn’t pick up where the last generation leaves off.  The next generation, in this case Baby Boomers, hijack a political party and go off in a fundamentalist direction.  The previous generation of Republicans actually were for more equality for women but now they’ve been waging war against women since the 1970’s.  That sounds like a 5th column of women and minority haters.  Fundamentalism in any religion will set society back who knows how far.

Until neXt time…

The Real Socialist CREEPs

Leave a comment

Greetings fellow world zobopians! For any one who’s been reading this blog should have figured out by now I’m a ‘little’ Left-Of-Center in my political outlook. Because these so-called Conservatives, Right-wing Republicans do not represent the party of Abraham Lincoln. That legacy ended when those southern Dixiecrats bigots high-jacked the G.O.P. in the early 1960’s. That was called the “Southern Strategy”. Today’s modern day conservative cries out that left style Liberals are socialist. The power of language can truly be used to confuse average citizens. Critical thinking is very important when ones life hangs in the political balance. The slick-n-slimy G.O.P. can get hard working people to vote against their own economic self-interest. And look what they have to show for it: No jobs. College debt with no prospect for a job.

The following statement shows real critical thinking:

One of the ironies of American politics is that our conservative party, the Republicans, is a mirror image, structurally, of Western Europe’s Socialist and Communist parties.” **

This statement was said by columnist Richard Reeves during George H. W. Bush’s 1988 Presidential campaign. [And yet he won anyway.] Obviously no one learned or listened back then. Nowadays, again, it’s always some right-wing ideologue calling poor people or Liberals “socialist” and yet it’s the Republicans and conservatives who are the CREEPing socialists.

WAKE UP AMERICANS!  There’s still a Republican war on!

…and…
For all the hypocritical citizens who want government out of your life, then don’t let misogynist policy turn over reproductive rights to the government! This means you REPUBLICANS!

Happy New Year fellow zobopians!  It took me some time to get my blogging juices flowing for 2015.  And the best I can do is a photo opportunity.  Anything for the topic of the minimum wage for the working poor.  Let’s face it, anybody working at minimum wage is poor. That’s the way the “powers that be” want it.
