Black Is…!

Black is dark, black is bleak; black is scary but black is an adjective and Black is the financial equivalent of great success!

The Black Madonna comes to mind, prayers abound at her feet. Adoration of Dark Forces is also a fact! Flip sides of a record whose grooves have been worn down by too much use. Heard it before, Pavlovian responses are the key to the conditioning of the minds of people. Get them to hate themselves for being black and not an adjective but a noun then a verb then an alliteration or maybe a delusion of themselves , Mirage, should be the title of the book as Black folks strove for legitimacy and simple human respect but the Ivory Ceilings are fraught with institutional racism and the cords of slavery are never Not too far behind the police and the rest of their fascist state. George Floyd’s public lynchpin was no mistake it was a message from the Deep State, USA! Hey hey wake up to Black is… because Black does matter in more ways than one. Grey matter is the basis for more than mere discussions so is loamy soils; imagine John and Yoko dared us to conceive of a better person we could be, yet better still, Imagine a world where we don’t have the last two; grey matter and loamy soils?

Black is complex, not homogeneous by the stretching of the truth. Black is more never less. Dominant not recessives by now we should know that! But the whitewashed history version has constancy and remains in effect. How do you finish a musing with your brain burning from the knowledge that History is filled with lies and intent on making Black people hate themselves! Black Lives Matter because otherwise we will be lol DEAD!

Black is…not white.

Trump And Biden: The Lesser Of Two Evils.

2020 has been a tumultuous year with so many natural disasters, floods, wildfires and earthquakes. We have seen so many tornadoes ripping through the plains and Midwest that at times we must ask how is possible that we survive it all. However we beg to consider that the biggest disaster has been the Trump presidency. At the outset with customary flair, pomp and circumstance, Mr. Trump began his re-election campaign the same day he assumed the office. Filled with bravado and hubris he has run roughshod all over this nation and the world. All the autocrats belong to a mutual admiration society with Trump and Putin leading the pack.

Mr. Trump is a wolf and we know what we will be getting from this guy. Joseph Biden is a wily fox,so his stealth hides the truth also. However, here is the truth of the matter. Two elderly white men are the candidates for the position of leader of the free world. Bernie Sanders was the other potential candidate for the presidency. Imagine as John Lennon would say, Really? Two old white guys with checkered pasts and foreign connections which deserve investigation. One beholden to China and the other to Russia. One other thing about these two, they are the dregs of the status quo which refuses to change and allow for progress to truly flourish. Economic disparities will continue as well as race baiting and divide and conquer, that good old boy is here to stay! Forever it seems and Trump is a crass practitioner with his filter-less self. Joe Biden is a forgetful old man with limited intellectual abilities. A family man and the scion of a dysfunctional family rarely seen in its naked nepotism and corrupt behavior. The son, Hunter is a craven ghoul of a man, seducing his late brother’s wife and then dumping her. What does that say about Daddy? With Trump we know that he is about making money from the office. So far so good but Covid19  is a new animal that has never been seen before.

Mr. Trump may say that he is doing a great job. He is not! But can we trust Biden?

We are going to have to trust him because we cannot put up with four more years of Team Trump. Period! Good bye sir, go back to Mar-A-Lago!
