Stand Your Grounds Laws Increase Homicides By 10.8%

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! Wasn’t the Second Amendment enough for most American folks? Apparently gun-toters wanted a license to kill and then use their get-out-of-jail free card. Also, Stand Your Ground laws are not for Black citizens. Watch the video if you don’t believe that.

Stand Your Ground laws are just a way to increase homicides.

Until neXt time…

I Blame Trump!

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! I hope you’re not a person of Asian descent who financially supported the white supremacy connected “Proud Boys”. #StopAsianHate! Stop supporting white supremacists!

I blame, we all should blame, former dis-United States President Trump for normalizing violence against Asian American citizens. It’s no surprise white males are brutally attacking Asian Americans. Unless my eyes are deceiving me I think I’m noticing people of color, (Black and/or Latinos), area also assaulting people of Asian descent.

Are Black people attacking Asians too? Why? [Photo credit USA TODAY Storyful]

What’s really confusing is the fact that people of Asian descent were or still are financially supporting the Proud Boys who have ties the white supremacy.

WTF! #StopSupportingWhiteSupremacy

There’s a lot of irony in this story. People of Asian descent need to do their homework about American society. It’s obvious they know NOTHING about America.

Learn American history before giving money to white supremacists.

If Trump had never became President with his nasty attitude against Asians, this antagonism against Asian American citizens probably never would’ve happened. So, in conclusion, I BLAME TRUMP! I blame you if you voted for Trump.

Until neXt time…🤦🏽‍♂️

A Derek Chauvin Not-Guilty Verdict Could Lead To Insurance Fraud

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! Well I see the militarized American police forces in Minneapolis are gearing up for another session of police brutality to citizens who continue to protest against police brutality.

Where was this much force on January 6, 2021, Capitol Hill?

What really bothers me are the hooligans and (alleged police) agent provocateurs who take advantage of these public displays of peaceful protesting so they can vandalize and loot the communities that are already economically vulnerable. People who don’t live in these communities are the ones who destroy them! Peaceful protesters don’t vandalize their own neighborhoods.

The only people who could benefit from destruction like this are the business owners who have property insurance. I assume most Black and Brown business owners don’t have business insurance is because they probably can’t afford it. But hey, folks who can muster that kind of money can make out like bandits on insurance claims. That is if you haven’t been redlined by insurance companies. 🤷🏽‍♂️ It just a thought.

Until neXt time…

They keep killing, we keep filming! [Photo may be subject to copyright.]

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
Reuters
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!” 👀🚨
————————————– This is exhausting! ————————————–
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…

Keep Filming White People, Our Lives Depend On It!

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  I’ve got a doozy for you!  We the Black people must keep filming cops and white citizens.  Our lives depend on it.  At least after we’re dead anyway.  The video can be used on social media to shame and avenge our deaths!  (As if regular mainstream media cares.)  Or maybe in a court of Law, that is if the Law is on our side.  I would like this picture below to become a rallying cry and meme to remember our collective due diligence.  If you’re thinking this is provocative, then good!  If white citizens are going to keep calling the police on Black Americans, (and thereby getting Blacks killed), then Black people need to start and keep whites under surveillance.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your cameras!

The Whole World’s Recording

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  The whole world’s watching!  But who’s watching the watchers?  What difference does it make?  It’s all being captured on video!  Killers are being caught on video.  People getting killed are captured on video.  The revolution WILL NOT be televised!  It will get recorded and be available for downloading to be watched over and over again at your convenience.

But…here’s the thing…

When a Black person gets shot and/or killed by police, does anyone see it?  Never mind having “the talk” with your son or daughter when coming in contact with the police.  What Black Americans need to talk about is, do you have a dashboard camera or your own personal body camera ready?  That’s the talk we need to be having.

KeepFilmingCops

The importance of recording the police is deadly serious.  (After all, they’re recording us citizens.)  There are three [3] deadly grounds for Black people when we come into contact with police:

-Order Of Survivability-

  1. You can get shot and/or killed in the street or in the vehicle.  [Eric garner – killed on sidewalk; Alton Sterling – shot in the street; Philando Castile – shot in car.]
  2. You can get shot and/or killed in the police vehicle; ( if you survive the first deadly ground scene.)  [Freddie Gray – killed in police van during “rough ride”.]
  3. You can die in the jail house or jail-holding cell; ( that is if you survive the first & second deadly grounds.)  [Sandra Bland – suspiciously died while in waiting in jail.]

Gone are the days of the 1960’s slogan, “the whole world’s watching”.  The police of the 21st century need to be kept under watch.  The only way we’re going to do that is to keep recording them.  If the police are going to keep “shooting to kill” us, then we need to keep “shooting to record” them just so we can have proof and evidence of what happened.  We can’t always rely on the police to provide evidence when they cover-up or delay proof or disable their tax-payer paid recording equipment.

KEEP RECORDING!  Freedom without security is useless!

Until neXt time…

Two Tales Of One World

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Man, do I have a case of writers block.  What do I write about?  What can I rant about this time?  It’s 2016 and it’s yet another presidential election cycle and an alleged fascist is running for President of these ‘segregated’ United States!

…and there are still Black people dying in the streets every day – many of them unarmed and at the hands of the police.

…and then, there are still Black people dying in the streets every day – many of them unarmed and at the hands of other Black people.

Black people killed by the police get exposed by the light of day while Blacks killed by other Blacks get shrugged under the rug.

SILENCE STILL EQUALS DEATH!

5 Degrees Of Prejudice

4 Comments

NOTICE: I had this posted on my old Google/Blogspot blog until Google unceremoniously deleted my blog. GoogleYouSuck! 😦
———————————————————————

5 degrees of prejudice:
1. Antilocution. Most people who have prejudices talk about them. but many people never go beyond this mild degree of antipathetic action.

2. Avoidance. If the prejudice is more intense, it leads the individual to avoid members of the disliked group, even perhaps at the cost of considerable inconvenience. In this case, the bearer of prejudice does not directly inflict harm upon the group he dislikes. He takes the burden of accommodation and withdrawal entirely upon himself.

3. Discrimination. Here the prejudices person makes detrimental distinctions of an active sort. He undertakes to exclude all members of the group in question from certain types of employment, from residential housing, political rights, educational or recreational opportunities, churches, hospitals, or from some other social privileges.

4. Physical attack. Under conditions of heightened emotion prejudice may lead to acts of violence or semi-violence. An unwanted ethnic family may be forcible ejected from a neighborhood, or so severely threatened that it leaves in fear.

5. Extermination. Lynchings, pogroms, massacres, and Hitler’s final solution of genocide mark the ultimate degree of violent expression of prejudice.
