Sometimes I want to burn my diploma and degree
When the autodidact grabbed the driver seat
History was redacted and crossed out
Before excavating began
Gasps were emitted
When the bodies and blood were revealed
The horrors became more gross
As the tales came from my own home country
Tulsa, Rosewood, Natchez, and so many more
The brutality came to light without me being in a classroom
Mass murders and unfettered violence
As the perpetrators were never held to account
Worse yet, encouraged to inflict as much suffering as possible
The so-called third world jumps out of their collective seats
While telling this side of the hemisphere how they can’t talk
Prepare to stare at the kettle
See the planks through the blindfolds
These noses should be lowered
To smell the carnage that was once buried
As the innocents scream from beyond the afterlife
Moving from the Green Star all the way to the Centennial State
Starting a new life for this family of five
All for a fatal blaze to snuff out these innocent souls
The injustice was a mile high like the city they resided
Parents and children all destroyed by satanic teens in masks
While the flames were from the igniting bigotry
One suspect didn’t fit the narrative of the conglomerates
As it was contrary to an unrelated isolated incident to fuel propaganda
Thank the Divine they’ll face justice as adults while living to tell about it
Others have been erased despite never slaughtering men, women, and children
Diol family, you didn’t deserve this
May your murderers face the most severe of consequences

The level of stupidity is freaking mind-blowing, but I’m no longer surprised especially in this sociopolitical climate.
So there’s this pastor named Jimmy Taylor from Arizona who was there to do some missionary work in Uganda. While he was in Kampala (the capital and largest city), this Jimmy Taylor ignoramus freaks out and goes on a racial tirade while also assaulting a hotel employee. Thankfully, he got arrested in Kampala where he will be tried.
Anyone who knows me knows that I cannot stand racism. Whether it’s posting on here, my fiction projects, or even my film and anime reviews, should know that I don’t play around with that crap. I’ve lived through it, been discriminated, and I know I’ve been treated worse than my Caucasian counterparts in my life.
It was painful watching that video, and I had ambivalent feelings about Francis (the victim) dealing with Jimmy Taylor. I get that the employers may have fired him if he dared to fight back, but if that were me, then I would be so tempted to throw hands to defend myself. Come on, everyone. If the races were reversed and if some Ugandan guy decided to insult some Caucasians in America and assaulted the staff, he would be beaten or even killed by the police and that’s a fact. The level of entitlement and arrogance from Jimmy Taylor just sickens me. Why aren’t more people speaking out against this bigot?
The people of Africa did a great job for making this video go viral and Dr. Mumbi Seraki did a great story about this on her YouTube channel. I’ve certainly learned more about African news and culture watching her stuff online. People need to call out these racists.
