zobop_republic Thoughts and Replys

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Not being on Twitter is giving me more time to think about blogging again.  It should be better than “micro-blogging”.  This world needs more ‘Thoughts & Replys’ and less “thoughts and prayers”.  I gotta get the creative juices flowing again for longer form writing. Here goes :

Naomi Osaka in no mood to back down on support for Black Lives Matter

Jack Tarrant

My response : “Good for her! Keep it up even if it harms her earning potential.  We shall see if corporations will truly support Black Lives Matter.  Or maybe businesses are just trying to profit from Black trauma/suffering, again.”

For George Floyd, a complicated life and a notorious death

LUIS ANDRES HENAO, NOMAAN MERCHANT, JUAN LOZANO and ADAM GELLER
Associated Press
My response : “No one ever said Black people are perfect.  Black citizens are never considered “innocent until proven guilty”.  Black folks may not have ‘privilege’ but they could develop some “leverage”.  The year 2020 could be the time to get that leverage.” 🤔

Sunny Hostin Has No Time For Meghan McCain’s ‘Gone With The Wind’ Lament

David Moye
HuffPost
My response : You should know this is coming folks.  “Frankly my dear white people, I don’t give a damn about ‘Gone With The Wind’!  I also don’t give a damn about the movie ‘Birth of a Nation’!” 😠📽

Officer in Breonna Taylor shooting accused of sexual assault

Janelle Griffith and Doha Madani
NBC News
My response : “These murderous American cops are very disturbed people!”

Police dispatcher suspended for calling protesters ‘wild animals’ who officers should ‘shoot to kill’

Andrew Naughtie
The Independent
My response : “It’s really the American killer cops who are the wild animals!  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or not, they are not fit for duty.  Plus, we’ve got to watch these dispatchers too!” 👀🚨

The modern day American copper is just another Ku Klux Klan uniform wearing killer kop.  They think they’re Judge, Jury & Executioner.  😠💢

Best Explanation of Anger On Police Murder/Brutality

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Have you ever known more than what you could say?  You would have feelings but couldn’t find the right words for your anger or confusion?  I think this unidentified woman in the John Oliver video perfectly expresses what I’ve been feeling since the George Floyd public execution by the murderous Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin. [The video should start at 31:54]

She took the words right out of my mouth!  …until neXt time…

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!

Jussie Smollett is NOT a credit to his race

1 Comment

Well hello fellow zobopians!  This will be a Black History Month no one will forget.  On second thought, I’m sure most Black Americans will want to forget this one.  I am disappointed in the “messed-up-in-the-head Jussie Smollett.  He deserves an Oscar this Sunday for his “performance”.  During a TV interview on ABC television Smollett said he’s an advocate.  Far as I’m concerned, he’s a traitor to the citizens he claims he advocates for.  He has done a disservice to all REAL victims!  The MAGA-white-nationalist will have a field day with this for a long time and will bring up this episode to gaslight future victims. *MAKES ME SICK!*

Get Their Badge Number

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  I know what you’re thinking.  I should do more blog posts.  Yes, you’re right!  But Twitter is so addictive and convenient.  But I have something to say to the world.  Well, at least to my fellow American’s.

Dear Black American’s,

If white people are going to call the police on Black citizens whoa re doing NOTHING or doing mundane activities, then we as Black American’s must always ask or demand to SEE a badge number!  It’s for future reference on commendations or complaints.  I’m guessing it’ll mostly be for complaints.

KeepFilmingCops

And another thing…

I don’t think the majority of American police officers should be allowed to remain on the police force longer than ten years. The financial cost of sustaining these pensioned police officers becomes so enormous.  Plus, there’s the reality of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that ‘some’ of these officers are suffering from.  I find it disturbing that police officers with PTSD are policing communities of color who themselves may also suffer with PTSD.  [PTSD on PTSD?]

P.S.  What’s with white people calling the cops on Black citizens anyway?  Jim Crow mentality?

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 Pacification Of Ferguson

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! To the point…

How many Ferguson, Missouri police officers are Black? Don’t the Ferguson citizens want to become police officers? That’s one way to end racist police terror.

How many members of the Ferguson, Missouri town/city council are Black? Don’t registered voters of Ferguson want to go into politics?

Will there ever be a Black person as mayor of Ferguson? I’m not playing the Race Card; just saying. Citizens will have to overcome their inertia and self-defeat to change the future. If things don’t change soon, Ferguson will continue to be pacified by a predominate White Citizens Council.

This is what one gets when you read Frantz Fanons‘ ‘Wretched of the Earth’ book.  Until neXt time…

Who Watches The Watchers?

Leave a comment

Good day fellow zobopians. Yes, that’s what I’m calling you all now, ‘zobopians’. It has a nice ring to it. Today’s thought is; Who watches the watchers?

Cameras aren’t the only surveillance devices spreading in our cities. Around the country, (and world), police departments are using devices with sound pickup. The microphone devices can pinpoint bursts of gunfire and also the sound of human voices.

If you want to live in a transparent society, we must answer the question:
Will average citizens share, along with the powers that be, the right to access these universal monitors? Will common folk have, and exercise, a sovereign power to “watch the watchers”?
