*Yeah, you read that right. In the election last Fall, the one where we are living the devastating results now…The where two of 10 wise points of advice shared online by Bernice King and others said don’t say HIS name…don’t refer to his [weird] color…

Yes, that election. 

In an early and often move it has now been revealed that 31 people in Michigan actually voted two times. The “error” was pointed out after a partial statewide recount investigation of the presidential race raised questions about how ballots were handled in Detroit. Continue reading

New Yorkers on Subway Take to Erasing Swastika Graffiti: ‘This is Not Trumps America’

*Imagine getting on a train and looking up to see that every single advertisement has been graffitied with a swastika. Now open your eyes. It’s 2017 and that’s exactly what a group of stunned New Yorkers saw in one of the trains cars. At first, all they could do was look at each other, mouths agape. That was before one passenger came up with a brilliant response which inspired everyone else to take action.

“I got on the subway in Manhattan tonight and found a Swastika on every advertisement and every window,” Gregory Locke wrote on his Facebook page. “The train was silent as everyone stared at each other, uncomfortable and unsure what to do.”

Being from New York I know for a fact the silence didn’t take long to break.

“One guy got up and said, ‘Hand sanitizer gets rid of Sharpie. We need alcohol.’ He found some tissues and got to work,” Locke wrote. “I’ve never seen so many people simultaneously reach into their bags and pockets looking for tissues and Purel. Within about two minutes, all the Nazi symbolism was gone.”

The hateful perps had even written “Jews belong in the oven” on a swastika-tinged map. Continue reading

1950s TV Western Features Con Man Named Trump Who Wanted To Build A Wall

maxresdefault

*They say life imitates art.  Sometimes, it’s the other way around.

A western drama TV series called “Trackdown,” ran from 1957 to 1959.  One of the series’ episodes, entitled “End of the World,” featured a con man named Walter Trump who told everyone that he could prevent the world from ending by…

wait for it…

building a wall.

For real.  

While OUR Trump wants to keep all of the raping, murdering Mexicans out of the country, the fictional Walter Trump’s wall was envisioned as the ultimate protector from a “cosmic explosion.”

Hilariously, the similarities don’t end there.   OUR Trump and THAT Trump had similar speaking patterns.  Check out this snippet of dialogue from the 1958 episode, and see if you agree: Continue reading

4,200 Joints to Be ‘Distributed’ and Smoked 4-Minutes into Trump’s Inauguration

*Some serious marijuana activists are going all out to ensure the place of marijuana in Donald Trump’s administration. They will be handing out 4,200 joints to the people — for free — to be smoked at exactly 4-minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s speech.

Hot dang! Even the non-smokers will leave with a contact high!

Let’s hope Trump himself takes a toke of something before he delves into his “Inauguration Speech.” From what he’s shown us of his public speaking prowess, would that really be so bad?

Oh hell, why not just have one in-hand DURING the speech!

Let’s face it: A Barack Obama he is NOT.

You might be wondering “what’s the message here?” Especially since the generous givers are not calling this an anti-Trump stance; but a “protest.” Continue reading

Donald Trump, Your First Order of Business, Talk to Your People’ …Now!

*Take a look at the picture directly above…It was inspired by the man who, in his acceptance speech as president-elect, promises to unite us. To bring the global community together. This would certainly be a remarkable feat seeing as he can’t even bring his own country together. Hey Mr. Trump, let’s start with your own neighborhood.

What a contrast the days following his election have shown juxtaposed to the 2008 election of president Barack Obama. Even though many voted otherwise, nothing overshadowed the feeling of celebration and positive energy. This happened with Obama’s re-election as well.

obama-victory-celebrations2

I, not unlike millions of others, can’t say the same about the days following Trump’s election. If it weren’t for the minute number of electoral votes needed (270) for the presidency, instead of the millions of popular votes given to Clinton, Trump would not have won. Now, half of the country appears to be in one big funk. People are protesting on the streets all over the country. Leaders from around the world who oppose his win are weighing in.

But worst of all, Trump’s victory has brought people who think like him out into the open with red hats replacing white sheets. He has inspired such hateful, nasty individuals my jaw continues to drop.

celebrations

Donald, of all the celebratory tactics your people could have chosen to showcase the Republican victory — parades, confetti, some positive joyful acts; they chose to run amuck with disrespectful, hateful representations of your vision (Scroll down).

Your people have gone full frontal. When on earth did they grow such “balls”…? They’ve put a whole new spin on the term, “white trash.” Continue reading

Harry Belafonte: What Do We Have to Lose? Everything!!

Activist and artist, Harry Belafonte
Activist and Artist, Harry Belafonte

“O, yes,

I say it plain,

America never was America to me,

And yet I swear this oath —

America will be!”

— Langston Hughes, “Let America Be America Again”

What old men know is that everything can change. Langston Hughes wrote these lines when I was 8 years old, in the very different America of 1935.

It was an America where the life of a black person didn’t count for much. Where women were still second-class citizens, where Jews and other ethnic whites were looked on with suspicion, and immigrants were kept out almost completely unless they came from certain approved countries in Northern Europe. Where gay people dared not speak the name of their love, and where “passing” — as white, as a WASP, as heterosexual, as something, anything else that fit in with what America was supposed to be — was a commonplace, with all of the self-abasement and the shame that entailed.

It was an America still ruled, at its base, by violence. Where lynchings, and especially the threat of lynchings, were used to keep minorities away from the ballot box and in their place. Where companies amassed arsenals of weapons for goons to use against their own employees and recruited the police and National Guardsmen to help them if these private corporate armies proved insufficient. Where destitute veterans of World War I were driven from the streets of Washington with tear gas and bayonets, after they went to our nation’s capital to ask for the money they were owed.

Much of that was how America had always been. We changed it, many of us, through some of the proudest struggles of our history. It wasn’t easy, and sometimes it wasn’t pretty, but we did it, together.

Donald Trump’s Biggest Fear is (Wait for It) ‘Public Humiliation’ According to Pre-Run Interviews

a-deal-for-donald-trump-b

*We may have identified what drives Donald Trump even more than his massive ego. According to taped interviews given months before he decided to run for president, Mr. Trump made statements that showed, unequivocally, that he is terribly afraid of being publicly humiliated. And as his run for POTUS comes to a close, a defeat would no doubt fit the bill.

According to an article in The New York Times…

The intense ambitions and undisciplined behaviors of Mr. Trump have confounded even those close to him, especially as his presidential campaign comes to a tumultuous end, and he confronts the possibility of the most stinging defeat of his life. But in the more than five hours of conversations — the last extensive biographical interviews Mr. Trump granted before running for president — a powerful driving force emerges: his deep-seated fear of public embarrassment.

Motivational speaker and TV personality, Iyanla Vanzant once said, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time,” and according to the recordings handed to the publication, Trump is revealed as a man who is fixated on his own celebrity (“Celebrities can do anything!”), anxious about losing his status (“It’s rigged!”) and contemptuous of those who fall from grace (Scroll down to hear what he says about Arsenio Hall).

The article states Trump once spoke with disgust about the very likable and highly successful Arsenio Hall. Though Hall was considered successful by any Hollywood standards with a great career as a comic, host of a late-night show bearing his name, and even some acting at one time, previously unreleased interviews from two years ago show Trump referring to Hall as “Dead as a door-nail…Dead as dog meat.”

[He] “couldn’t get on television,” Mr. Trump said with disgust. “They wouldn’t even take his phone call.”

The article goes on to say that Trump felt Hall had suffered the most grievous form of public humiliation: His celebrity had waned. His star had dimmed.

It should come as no surprise, if you’ve watched any of the debates, that Mr. Trump has done no self reflection at all. Perhaps a statement Hillary Clinton once made is true. “Donald,” she said, “lives in an alternate universe.” He demonstrates this often. On the one hand he will admit to “locker room talk” being the reason for his vulgar remarks about women; while in the same breath he will say, “No one respects women more than me.”

This, I’ve noticed, he says with a straight face. Continue reading

New York Times Admits Trump Presidency Would Be ‘Disastrous!’ (And Here’s Why!)

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gestures and declares "You're fired!" at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, June 17, 2015. (Dominick Reuter/Reuters)
Can you just see your NEXT PRESIDENT doing THIS? ANYwhere?

*Let me start with a disclaimer: I’m not even gonna front: I am probably the least political person out there. But at the same time and in the same breath I have always been a deep thinker; not afraid to speak my mind or give my opinion, which makes my being a writer no mistake. So when I sat front and center to watch the 1st presidential debate on Monday between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republic nominee Donald Trump, I did so against my liking, but knew that eventually I would have to hunker down and come to terms with the fact that, if you’re going to vote (and I am) you’d better sit your ass down and tune in to what these two candidates are actually saying.

Let it be known that I, not unlike many faced with making a choice in THIS election, am not head over heels about either candidate. I know that many people are voting for Hillary Clinton because they liked Bill. And many are voting for Donald Trump because they hate Obama.

It’s downright scary how frivolous and cavalier people given the power to vote have the potential to be…Kind of like many of the people given a badge and a gun.

Dead means gone forever.

Generally, by now, I have a clear-cut favorite . And if hate wasn’t such a strong word, I’d probably use it towards ‘The Donald.’ I knew immediately I would never respect a presidency he led. Actually, I thought his interest in running was a joke at first, and it was only after he was actually nominated that I realized it was not.

Ugh. On every level. Still. Continue reading
