This is an infuriating story, but I’m not surprised nor is this situation the only case.
A nurse was taking care of an elderly COVID patient who confessed that she lied about a Black boy attacking her in the 1930s and had him lynched, castrated, and watched his house burned down. She mentioned this story on TikTok and it managed to get some attention. I was beyond sickened how she literally got away with murder. Sure, people may know about Emmett Till and how that she-devil admitted to lying about him, but there are plenty more stories that aren’t even reported even now.
And people tell me that this doesn’t happen in America and want to deny this bloody history.
This is pure depravity and I hope she experiences as much spiritual torture forevermore. As Phillip said, Black people would NEVER gang up on a Caucasian person, lynch them, and castrate them (they certainly wouldn’t get away with it if it did happen and that is straight FACTS!). The fact that this harpy wanted it to happen because the boy’s sisters had nicer dresses than she did? Unbelievable! It sickens me how these racists get away with everything. Not only that but there are still to this day no anti-lynching laws which I didn’t even know that until at least a year ago. What should that tell you about this country? I’m beyond furious how evil people like her got to live their lives while people who have done far less than what she did get murdered with impunity. Hell, lynching used to be a public spectacle where they would stop school and work just to kill a Black person in America! I’m holding back from using some profanity-laden rant about her. These are some diabolical double standards and no one can tell me ANYTHING about stereotypes associated with my heritage let alone associated with my maternal side of my family.
It’s infuriating with the sound of crickets over the past few months.
Back in June in Ypsilanti, MI, a 6 year old boy named Coby Daniel was shot in his neighborhood. The shooter was none other than Ryan Le-Nguyen. He got such a soft bail with paying 10% of the $10K bond in jail. This hasn’t received much mainstream attention even though it was attempted murder of a child. Exactly why would anyone assume a 6 year old to be a possible threat? However, it doesn’t fit the current narrative given the ethnicity of the victim and the assailant respectively. No, I’m not disrespecting anyone’s race or trying to fuel tensions. Let’s be honest about this current climate. If a Black man shot an Asian boy, then this would be worldwide news and felony hate crime charges would have been pressed instantly. I wouldn’t be surprised if Coby was scarred physically and mentally after that encounter. It’s a shame how people have been so quiet about this story and I hope the Daniel family is able to get justice. It’s a shame how this society only cares about certain crimes over others even if a child is shot. I don’t want to rant on. I just want justice to prevail.
I know Nestle has done really bad things in the past like that heinous baby formula fiasco story my mom told me about when I was a child, but this is just plain sick. So apparently, Nestle and Cargill have financed their chocolate businesses by using child slaves as young as 5 years old in Cote D’Ivoire (or Ivory Coast if you prefer) and Mali for 12-14 hours a day under abusive conditions like getting beaten, starved out, and under armed surveillance among other ghastly things. The formally enslaved people tried to make a lawsuit against these companies for human rights abuses and who can blame them? However, the Supreme Court in America denied the lawsuit from an 8-1 majority (Yes, both Republicans AND Democrats voted to reject the suit) because this happened outside of America. So let me get this straight. People can be arrested for sexual assault or being a Nazi outside of the country even if it was outside the nation as they should be incarcerated, but for being involved in child slavery isn’t good enough to throw the book at the companies and their accomplices? Unbelievable! Do your jobs, SCOTUS!
Me being offended about this happening isn’t just on principle in my case, but this offends me as a human being. While Nestle and Cargill deserve to be boycotted and charged with slavery, the accomplices directly in those African nations need to be locked up as well. This is hardcore selling out on so many levels and those governments should rescue the enslaved and shut down these plantations. Slavery is still going on in the world, but sadly not many people still realize this.
If you do buy chocolate, then please do your research on the companies like if they’re fair trade for example. For me, I won’t be buying anything from these companies.
Don’t just focus on the Crunch Bars, NesQuik chocolate milk, or NesCafe coffee. Here are other brands that each respective company owns.

Hopefully this helps for anyone who actually cares about this issue. The fact that slavery hasn’t ended in 2021 makes my blood boil.
Wode Maya makes such great travel vlogs and he has really opened my eyes when it comes to showing Africa. Not too long ago, he went to Somaliland of all places. Not Somalia (despite this area being inside the mainland), but Somaliland. This non-recognized country is apparently very stable and safe to visit. I’ve heard of the name before in passing from different videos I’ve watched, but I was unaware of what it looked like. Not going to lie, I thought it would be super chaotic and dangerous given the grave issues with pirates, crime, and terrorism like mainland Somalia, but apparently this piece of land doesn’t have those problems. Seeing the money exchange guy leaving to go pray and coming back to see his wares untouched was mind blowing. You couldn’t even do that in an American suburb, for crying out loud (relax, I would never try to steal someone’s stuff). It was fascinating seeing this part of Africa that you never see in the media and Wode Maya’s adventures really show. He has other videos with him talking to locals and businessmen which I also recommend seeing.
I just needed to see something positive for my own mental health and I hope you enjoy this video, too.
My body shook when I found out about this story and I HAVE to talk about this. A baby named Kyanna Williams in Denver had her face cut during a C-section and is forced to have a plastic surgeon to make 13 stitches to the poor girl’s face to hopefully help with the healing. Granted, I’m no parent or medical expert, but I’m beyond furious hearing this. Apparently, there’s a 0.7% chance of a C-section baby getting a laceration which I wouldn’t have guessed, but that still doesn’t excuse these doctors. I’m glad the family is suing because this is a slam dunk malpractice case and potential attempted infanticide there. First, I hear about the 6-year old Coby Daniels getting shot in Ypsilanti, and now THIS?!? Much like what Phil said, if I found out my newborn child was cut or harmed during birth by the doctors or other medical personnel, I would end up in jail! I hope the family gets justice and for Kyanna’s face to fully heal since SHE DID NOT DESERVE THIS!
I found out about this story not long after this video was first uploaded and I was seething with rage. Apparently, this Chinese company has been enslaving Zimbabweans and doing all types of cruel things to the Africans in that country. This is just sick. In the thumbnail, you could see them moving sick women with a FORKLIFT and not stretchers. There is a chemical used that’s been knocking out the women workers which is dangerous as well as very suspicious. I seriously hope they aren’t taking sexual advantage of them. Thankfully, the workers have spoken up and collecting receipts of these gross violations. I hope these devils get jail time. You don’t see Africans enslaving Chinese people, much less the Asian community, and this needs to be stopped.
I just had to talk about this issue with how infuriated I was with this news story. Why isn’t this hitting worldwide news channels? Oh, I have a few guesses why. I felt compelled to share this with everyone.
It’s been a while since I talked about news around the world, but I saw this video which ticked me off so much that I just have to talk bout it.
There’s a British company called Timbuktu who had the temerity to trademark the word “Yoruba”. For those who don’t know any thing about that word, it refers to an actual African ethnic group and language associated with Nigeria, Benin, and Togo although Nigeria has a huge Yoruba population. Some famous people of that ethnicity involve actor John Boyega, basketball player Hakeem Olajuwon, and rapper Wale to name a few. The Nigerian community got infuriated by this trademark controversy and rightfully so. They were raising awareness to this issue. Also, am I the only one who noticed that this company is named after the famous Malian city?
This is just blatant cultural appropriation and I hope Timbuktu gets enough pressure to drop the trademark. I never bought anything from them and I hope there’s a giant boycott against them for what they did. What’s up with these companies trademarking African things? You have this recent case, Louis Vuitton making “luxury” Maasai cloths, and (I will not stop repeating this example because this company deserves the smoke) Disney freaking trademarking the phrase “Hakuna Matata”! These corporations need to stop doing this and I hope people stop buying their things. Think about it, they trademarked the name of an ethnic group consisting of millions of people around the world and not just in Western Africa. How would people react if Timbuktu or any company trademarked the name(s) of another ethnic group such as Irish Travelers, Sicilians, or Ashkenazim? I’m sure there would be even more outrage if anyone dared to do so. Nobody should be turning ethnicities into intellectual property.
The fact that people tell me that cultural appropriation isn’t bad or doesn’t exist is just idiotic because they never had to deal with their heritage being slighted in the least.
So some legal people have shut down the opportunity for there to be a special independent prosecutor for the Breonna Taylor case? My blood is boiling hearing about this. I know they wouldn’t try that if Black cops gunned down a white woman in cold blood. They’d be wearing orange jump suits by now or possibly get the electric chair if the races were reversed. Of course, the sellout of the century Daniel Cameron isn’t going to be involved for obvious reasons.
This is so unbelievable, but I’m sadly not surprised given the state of how the injustice system works in America which is a shame. No, just because a different president is going to take office next month won’t change anything about this situation. Breonna Taylor was straight up murdered and the charges were only for a shot up wall for “wanton endangerment” compared to a woman who was killed even though she and her boyfriend had nothing to do with some drug-based criminals. This shouldn’t have happened.
See, I didn’t ignore the Breonna Taylor case or any other stories of racial injustice even though I haven’t posted on here as much recently.
Just because I haven’t been posting as often this time doesn’t mean I don’t care about serious issues. I found out about this video from Lisa Cabrera and this story should be more known. You have this devil named David Menna who faked being a doctor and wilderness expect. That is actually the least offensive thing about him. You see, Menna is a serial child molester who constantly groomed and abused them over and over. To make matters worse, he was never officially registered as a sex registered despite being caught and every time, he would expunge any previous records for new jobs. Think about it, every time he gets hired and sexually assaults minors, each time is supposedly the “first time” any charges of that nature are brought up.
This sickens me. How is it that these heinous demons can still walk around molesting several children yet people like Breonna Taylor or Philando Castile are dead? David Menna needs some hard time for his crimes. The people who refused to vet him in every job he had need to be fired as well. You know if David Menna was Black, he would’ve been dead or at the very least getting decades of prison time for just one count of molestation. There are people who would never commit any sex crimes much less any crimes who’ve been punished at their jobs for MUCH less! I’m sick of these double standards as these people get away with everything.
Finally, there’s some semblance of positive news and updates in this heinous event. Kenneth Walker is Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend in case you didn’t know. He got himself a lawyer and is filing charges against both the city of Louisville as well as LMPD. That is a step in the right direction especially with all the injustice him and his late girlfriend suffered in that botched raid. Kenneth was falsely accused of attempted murder even though his own apartment was broken into and had to defend himself and her. He was a legal gun owner and the castle doctrine should apply here. Kenneth was traumatized after Breonna was murdered (WHO CAN BLAME HIM?!) and it was sickening getting those charges and being silenced. After all this time about the cops not being charged, there’s finally some legal action going on. I really hope justice is on the side of him and the Taylor family especially with the horrific things that happened to them. Even the other tenants in the same apartment complex said the police never announced who they were when they broke into Kenneth and Breonna’s apartment room. This was an atrocity and no one should ever have to go through this.
May justice favor Kenneth Walker. Never forget Breonna Taylor.
