The Anti-Black Racial Horrors in Buffalo, Abertillery, and Beyond

I know I’m on hiatus, but all of these stories have angered me so much that I just have to talk about them.

I’m sure you all know about that horrific act of racist terrorism in Buffalo, NY. I don’t have to repeat too much, but I didn’t want to see the loss of life or how soft that devil Payton Gendron got so far. Some updates have come up that Gendron was in a groupchat on Discord and other online platforms that detailed his original plan of killing at least THREE DOZEN Black people. That “lone wolf” excuse crumbles after that news came out. All those people should be hit with conspiracy charges! This is just sick with how these white supremacists are coddled in this country. Please check out this video for more information. I’m glad Phil called out how these racist jokes and memes are dangerous. They are preludes to attacks and this goes back to all that propaganda in this country. I wish Gendron gets hard time, federal hate crime charges, and spends his life in jail. Also, there needs to be an Anti-Black hate crime bill. If the AAPI community can get one for suffering for much less, then there is no excuse to have a hate crime bill for the Black community, too!

Of course, white supremacy isn’t just limited to America though. Recently in Wales, an eleven-year-old boy named Raheem Bailey was racially and physically abused in Abertillery. The local school didn’t do anything about the bullying and Bailey was attacked so severely that he suffered many injuries before damaging his finger while trying to escape which was so bad that it had to be amputated. Abertillery Learning Community deleted its Twitter due to the backlash and there have been no punishments for the students or teachers who were watching the situation so far. I’m just beyond sickened. Those who say they won’t care because the boy was Black Welsh and not African-American should be ashamed of themselves. Racism is freaking global! Here’s an article about the situation. I hope Raheem is able to recover and for his assailants to be severely punished! https://www.itv.com/news/wales/2022-05-23/school-trust-closes-after-boy-lost-finger-fleeing-bullies

I’ve been hearing so many double standards going on with the Ukraine/Russia situation and I’m sick of it.

I know I haven’t been posting as much on this blog, but that doesn’t mean I’m ignoring what’s been happening. In this case, we’re talking about the Russia-Ukraine War going on now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not getting any sadistic pleasure in seeing people suffering and this is a serious situation. The more I’ve been researching about this conflict, I’ve been getting angry. I saw the videos of African students and immigrants getting denied access to evacuate, a story about Ukrainian soccer fans in 2020 praising Derek Chauvin during a game despite the protests happening worldwide, talks about Ukrainians getting reparations, or the constant dog whistles and foghorns about the Ukrainian refugees being treated with such sympathy because they have “blond hair and blue eyes”, are from a “civilized” country, are Europeans from middle or upper-middle-class backgrounds, or how they aren’t like Arabs or Black people from wartorn countries. No, I’m not supporting either side. Putin invading that country is certainly bad which I won’t dispute, but the racism I’ve been hearing from Ukraine and the Western media never giving the same sympathy to refugees from non-white countries is infuriating. Now, Ukraine is asking Africans to fight for them? I’m glad there are people refusing and some even know the history worldwide. It’s not their fight. It’s not even limited to that Eastern European country. You can go back to the American Revolutionary War where the first fatality was Crispus Attucks, a Black man. Civil War? The Black soldiers weren’t treated that well and some went to the concentration camp known as The Devil’s Punchbowl. Both World Wars? Black soldiers never got the benefits from the GI Bill and you even had people LYNCHED IN UNIFORM! Even in Europe, they were mistreated and killed by the same armies they fought for. Thiaroye Massacre for example? I rest my case. I’m sick and tired of this blatant bigotry going on with this already tension-fraught war going on. Like Phillip said, I don’t want to see anyone suffering, but I can’t stand the hypocrisy going on.

Moms of Liberty are triggered by CRT and they want to ban MLK from schools? SERIOUSLY?!?

The video proper starts at 1:00

Just when I think some people in America couldn’t get any more idiotic with their bigotry, I stand corrected. So this right-wing group called the Moms of Liberty wants to ban Martin Luther King Jr. from the history books because it allegedly “traumatizes” white children. This is so stupid as well as heinous. These Karens as well as their token Asian and Indian crash test dummies want to stop talking about Civil Rights let alone the other parts of American history that expose how racist America was and still is.

Wow, for a group trying to be about America, they sure are using Nazi tactics of book-burning, don’t you think? People just can’t handle the uncomfortable truths about the rampant racism in this country. The concept of CRT has been such a hot debate over the past year. The arguments against it (the fact it’s a collegiate-level curriculum as opposed to the K-12 levels is irrelevant) boil down to “It makes white people feel bad!”. Stop acting like this country is perfect because it’s not. It’s not going to sow the seeds of racial strife. It tells the hard truths and makes sure that history doesn’t repeat itself in America. Shoot, there were so many atrocities I learned on my own that I DIDN’T learn about in school from kindergarten all the way to my undergraduate years in college. Here are some examples of what I didn’t learn during my time as a student and that’s not even counting the events that happened in other countries:

Black Wall Street
The Devil’s Punchbowl concentration camp in Natchez, MS
East St. Louis race riots
The Convict Lease program
Little Rock race riots
The GI Bill did not give any aid to Black soldiers after WWII unlike their white counterparts
Bacon’s Rebellion
Various acts of colonizers cannibalizing African slaves (check out the book The Delectable Negro for more on that subject)

That’s just the tip of the iceberg and I’m still learning about more of these stories. Even the positive stories involving various inventors could be added to that list. People should learn about these things. If a student has any shred of humanity (I at least have SOME hope in that regard although not a lot), then they will be compelled to make a change and to call out these racists in different fields. These Moms of Liberty are straight-up white supremacists and have no right to ban the books or say how other countries do all these terrible things.

A dying white woman admitted to getting a Black boy lynched because of a lie during her childhood

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.

Finally an Official Holiday, But There Should Be More (Juneteenth)

Tomorrow would be the first time it became federal

This 2nd Independence Day of sorts had every right to be known

156 years too long

For all to know about that important day

The papers were signed and the calendars will have it for future generations

While a federal holiday was a good gesture

Bigotry didn’t and wouldn’t stop there

The hatred towards those descended from the emancipated was still at a fever pitch

The denials of American history become stronger

Attempting to burn the books despite the net existing

Was freedom truly free?

Was there a pure jubilation in sight?

After the last one was found in Galveston all this time

Would “All people are created equal” actually mean what is says on paper?

100 Years Later…Never Forget Black Wall Street!

https://www.oklahoman.com/story/news/2021/05/26/tulsa-race-massacre-survivors-reparations-black-wall-street/4947306001/

Today marks an entire century after one of the biggest racial massacres happened in America. The sad part is most people didn’t learn about this event in school.

Feel free to check the link in the post for more information especially with the recent news about the survivors speaking trying to get the government to recognize this event.

For those that don’t know, I’m referring to the Black Wall Street Massacre. This involves a neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma called the Greenwood District. Side Note: Greenwood is what the G means in The GAP Band who are from that same city. The thing is that in the 1910s-1921, Greenwood was a Black-only area due to segregation and Jim Crow. However, this Black enclave consisted of businesspeople, doctors, lawyers, etc. It got the nickname of Black Wall Street because Black people were making Wall Street money at the time. This was due to them starting their own businesses as well as getting into the oil business which was booming at the time in the Sooner State. Crime was negligible at worst, a dollar could circulate 100 times in the community before exiting Greenwood, and some of these businesses involved grocery stores, banks, jewelry stores, fashion boutiques, hospitals, and other establishments. You even had people moving from as far as New York City and Chicago just to live in this neighborhood.

Unfortunately, things became hostile in 1921. There was a false sexual assault allegation against a Black man by a Caucasian woman in an elevator which enabled there to be a mob who became deputized to ransack Greenwood. They were deputized, killed Black people, burned down businesses, looted whatever was there, and even bombarded Black Wall Street with an airplane to raze the community. Several people died even though they only reported over thirty in the news. However, there were mass graves revealed just a couple of years ago. No one was ever punished by this massacre and you even had Tulsans who’s families have been there for generations who didn’t even know about this atrocity happening.

I didn’t learn about this until about a couple of years after I graduated college in a DJ Vlad interview of Immortal Technique of all things (this is before I knew Vlad was a culture vulture, so please forgive me) mentioning it in passing. I didn’t get really in-depth with it until I saw the documentary Hate Crimes In the Heartland which features the remaining three survivors who are all now centenarians. My blood froze when one of the women who lived through that massacre said her mom saw these mobs wearing American flags while armed while telling her “Your country is shooting at you!” while breaking into tears. I strongly recommend anyone to watch this to really get details of Black Wall Street and how there needs to be justice and reconciliation.

Hearing about Black Wall Street was both fascinating in how the people thrived while establishing their own businesses while at the same time infuriating me with this gross racist injustice that happened. The stories of people owning their own airplanes, getting rich from their own means, and succeeding even in Jim Crow-era Oklahoma was inspiring. At the same time, hearing about this brutality made my blood boil. Keep in mind, the Black Wall Street Massacre was the FIRST airstrike on US soil. Unlike Pearl Harbor twenty years later the fact where a foreign country (Japan, obviously) attacked them, this was an attack by Americans to Americans. This piece of history also reveals racist hypocritical rhetoric that still happens to this day. The “bootstraps” argument is null and void. These people in Greenwood DID pick themselves up by their bootstraps, but their homes and businesses were razed. The complaint about people looting businesses during some of the BLM protests for example, falls flat (note: people shouldn’t be looting anyway) when a white mob looted and destroyed businesses and never got punished for their actions. This is still American history that needs to be talked about and taught. Tulsa wasn’t the only example (Slocum, TX and Rosewood come to mind) when it comes to these situations.

This didn’t even get mainstream attention to the best of my knowledge until the Watchman 2019 TV sequel of all things where it was a plot point in the show. You had people who thought it was wholly fictional until they did a basic Google search. One of my older paternal cousins didn’t even know about Black Wall Street until she saw the Watchman HBO show when she told me when we were on Zoom (she lives multiple states away from me). The other example I can think of even though this involves something very political was the backlash against Donald Trump’s rally in Tulsa. It was originally going to be on Juneteenth until they changed the date due to the ramifications and symbolism of it being a double whammy of having an event on that holiday in the same city where this massacre happened. I was shocked that mainstream news channels talked about that even if it was brief when news broke out about the rally.

I thought this would be very important to share. People need to learn about this and other cases in this country. I want justice to prevail and for there to finally be healing going on. Several people regardless of race or ethnicity didn’t know about this until fairly recently. I’m not doing this to shame others. Is this an uncomfortable part of American history? Yes, and I don’t dispute that. I don’t want this history to repeat and I hate seeing racist hypocrisy going on in this country. There needs to be reconciliation. Never forget.

Too Many Vices, Too Many Frustrations

Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of the chaos

2021 certainly has it’s issues to say the least

Tension is still fraught and the year isn’t half done yet

This won’t go away with a light switch

The pressure was too far to even allow a finger to turn positivity on

Hatred still permeates

Teachers take pictures of their feet on the necks of 10 year olds

People figuratively and literally push each other with prejudice

Petty arguments pile up online or offline

Social media slave auctions occur in schools

With little punishments happening

Bone rooms become exposed in universities

How far has society truly progressed?

It’s a deluge of sorrows and paranoia

In the crosswinds of division

When the heart is pumped with gloom from the earth

Untitled Academia Rant

So much self-realization after weeks of reflection

An anniversary shows up after getting the gown and cap

I proved I could make it in four year’s time on time

Some of my peers couldn’t even say that

While I wasn’t a valedictorian or salutatorian in that realm

I still took my studies seriously

There were things I learned which I appreciated

But as I grew older, I’ve been realizing what I DIDN’T learn regardless if it was relevant to my degree or not

Socializing was a trial by fire of sorts

I was awkward at times, I do confess

I was too music of a music fan and didn’t talk about my other interests that much.

With that said, I realized how much I was in hell

Self-righteous fake Christians moralizing and wrecking my self-esteem in subtle ways

Some men and women got to be psychological rapists to me while pretending to be my friend

I wish I knew about the insidious and hidden attacks to my mind

One attempt failed when one person said “White power!” to my face my sophomore year

Boy, did I give him and his buddies the riot act by yelling at them that day

Overt, covert…didn’t matter

I didn’t deserve the torture

While I’m thankful for certain professors teaching me and making some legit friendships,

I underestimated the negatives

I should’ve progressed farther after the fact

There were situations out of my control and some were in control, but I should’ve improved in the latter

Hidden pains wreck my psyche with these echoes of the past

I hope to succeed better than all the fake friends and true enemies I knew during those four years

And not be crippled by my regrets

Easier said than done.

Diol Family, You Are Not Forgotten

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 World Saw the Stark Contrasts

Imagine if their complexion was multiple shades darker.

In this idiotic chaos, the world saw the stark contrasts.

Not just with some donkeys and some elephants alike facepalming, but others from the globe shuddered.

Melanin would’ve been an instant conviction if the shoe was on the other foot.

Felony charges would be tossed around like candy.

A harsher response would’ve been an understatement as they wouldn’t have made it to the steps.

If looting is bad (which it is), then what about the podiums, documents, and other things?

Why didn’t those who stormed the building just comply?

Those who screamed “law and order!” last summer didn’t practice what they preached.

While numerous initialed powers do their research, more faces popped up albeit with no perp walks on the small screen.

Three piece suits, stethoscopes, and even those who didn’t wear badges that day were in trouble.

That’s not getting into the severe omission of masks and the disgusting amount of human excrement smeared or poured around.

Why the zip ties, molotovs, guns, and other harmful objects? How is a shirt with “6MWE” somehow less offensive than the word “equality” to them?

Patriots? Nothing says loving America like waving a flag used by traitors (did you read the sarcasm).

The world saw these stark contrasts.

Are sound minds too much to ask for?
