republicans

People of color are quick to say that the Republicans are racist, meanwhile the Democrats, who aren’t racist, haven’t even slightly improved the lives of people of color. But what is Racism, as an American social construct is an ideology of hate and particularly an ideology of hatred directed toward people of color. This word itself refers to any attitude towards individuals and groups of people which posits a direct linear connection between physical and mental qualities. It therefore attributes to those individuals and groups of people collective traits, physical, mental, and moral, which are constant and unalterable by human will, because they believed to be caused by hereditary factors or external influences, such as climate or geography.

While it is true that an individual may not have racial intent, but that individual’s actions may nonetheless have racial consequence. And that individual need not adhere to white supremacist ideology to benefit from its effects or to be injured by it. However, there is an undeniable psychological wage of whiteness, all too often the reward for blackness is a bullet…Mr. President this is the Wage Gap. Today in America, racial justice is beyond redistribution.

“…a psychological bird that told him that no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white man, better than the Black man.”- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

People complain that Mexicans are taking their jobs; they complain that Asian Americans are taking over their country; they complain that Blacks are ruining their neighborhood – this is a concept of ownership. This is a concept that gave rise to the political slogans “Take Our Country Back” and “Make This Country Great Again”.

Many people of color don’t like the republicans, they feel the Republicans are amnesiac racist and corporate opportunist that would kick their own mother out of a wheelchair if it made them a dollar, yet these people of color are the main consumers of Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Frito Lays products, etc the very products that sustain and support the Republican Party and its candidates.

Ben Carson and Donald Trump

As if either of these guys has a shot at winning…

In a default setting people of color have allowed, enabled, so-called racist from both political parties to rule over them.

What could cause people of color vote against their own best interest? What could causes them not to create a political party for them and by them? What is it that causes them to continually watch the very thing they claim to hate? What causes them yell racist and at the same time support “racist” policies and parties with their hard earned dollar? What is it that makes them no groom people of color for political office? What is it that causes them to beg for help from their “oppressor” in a park, while singing old spiritual songs? What could makes them stand for the lesser of two evils while their communities crumble around them?

Slave labor and sex trafficking is still coming in from the southern border…right. Reparations still haven’t been paid…right. Middle Easterners are still being bombed…right. Drugs are still ravaging communities…right. People of color are still being incarcerated at a three times higher rate than Whites…right.

Mrs. Clinton actually called Blacks “Super Predators” and not your lives don’t matter. Meanwhile Mr. Clinton is apologizing for the “unintended consequences” of mass incarceration, who the hell else were they going to lock up for profit…people that looked like him…

Every time you turn around the Department of Justice is investigating another incident (Just to calm you down)…right. You are still working hard every single day to make ends meet…right. College tuition is still rising…right. Wars are still being funded…right.

Hillary Clinton

Voting for someone who looks like you or is the same gender as you, may make you feel better, but how is that really working out? It is’t the Republicans or the Republican Party that has amnesia, perhaps it is the people of color who have amnesia.

Midnight: Rise of the Black Vampires

Are you a Vampire fan, a Fantasy enthusiast? Yet you paused when you looked at the new novel Midnight: Rise of the Black Vampires?

While you were reading this novel on the train did you feel as if people were staring at you?

Did you ask yourself…WTF, why black vampires?

Leading up to the release of Midnight: Rise of the Black Vampires, I received emails saying…Why did you have to make the vampires Black… Followed by my standard reply of “Did you send Stephanie Meyer, Ann Rice or any other fantasy authors ask similar questioning email?”

With black people being gunned down by the police, shot down in the street for no reason and being marginalized as second class citizens what harm could a white book with a black power fist in the middle of it cause you on your way to work.

You have movements where the people of color protest at a predetermined time, in an approved park but many don’t want the daily questions that come with being a person of color in America. People of color don’t want to wear blackness on their sleeve, they don’t want the eyes on them, and they don’t want the questions…

“Who taught you to hate the race that you belong to so much so that you don’t want to be around each other? No… Before you come asking Mr. Muhammad does he teach hate, you should ask yourself who taught you to hate being what God made you.”—Malcolm X

That is called hiding in plain sight. It is not pride; it is the psychological effect of centuries of white supremacy. White Supremacy is not limited to individual thought and behavioral patterns, it is something ingrained in the collective psyche of a group.

“… to be white is to be human and all others are subhuman, savages, beasts of burden to be worked, raped, beaten and robbed – they deserve what they get and little else can be expected of them anyway.”- Bell Hooks

When you look at most urban novels, you see almost naked women and men, guns, drugs, expensive cars and titles like ‘Hood Hoe 17’ and ‘Twerk Momma 7’. If you read those novels on the train there will be no eyes on you, there will be no questions to answer because those images are what American white supremacy has been selling and that is what many have been buying for years.

To this end Midnight: Rise of the Black Vampires was conceived to place characters that are unapologetic, revolutionary and Blacks front and center. This novel may be about vampires but the world is reflected in-between its lines.

Midnight: Rise of the Black Vampires is about a lot more than being a vampire. Shake the bonds of white supremacy by using your detector whenever possible.

White christmas

White is the ultimate authority, they set it up that way, so that ain’t nothing good until it’s white.

Look at chocolate, dark, sweet, cream, milk–but no that wasn’t enough they had to go and make

that white too, and white chocolate isn’t even chocolate!



You don’t see chocolate vanilla do you. I knew they wouldn’t stop at milk. They may as well say,

here drink this, white it does a body good.

Racism is everywhere and its not subtle.

Another poem from It Ain’t Just the Size

We are confronted with the undeniable truth that conservatism has and is failing America. The “George W. Bush” administration had it’s time to lead, and it failed. It’s long past time for the country—in particular older people—to embrace the “hope and change” heralded with the arrival of Barack Obama, as the youth have clearly done. Before Barack Obama was elected he not only promised change he promised to remake the world. Obama promised health care. Obama delivered on that promise. Obama promised to allow gays to serve openly in the military by repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. Obama delivered on that promise. Obama promised to fight terror. Obama has not only delivered on that promise, but he showed true leadership by ordering the assassination of Osama Bin Laden and Al Awlaki. Obama promised to remove American fighting troops from Iraq. Again, Obama delivered on that promise. On every promise that didn’t heavily involve congress Barack Obama delivered. The Obama bashers insist that he has done nothing since being in office. If that is the case why would anyone need to repeal or take their country back. The mental salve needed to understand these statements is laughable, but the sound bites make for good narrative.

The “Bush Doctrine” was a failure. George W. Bush currently has the lowest approval rating in the history of a living President. Without saying so the American people have rejected the neo-conservative philosophy and policies represented by the Bush/Cheney/Rove administration (All white men). Conservatives have read the reports. They have seen the writing on the wall. Caucasians will soon be a minority. So they have doubled-down on stupid and diversified what White Supremacy looks and sounds like. Sure there are non-whites running around proporting the same racially code worded non-sense, but that is only to curry favor with the whites and a completely different psychological issues, one that the recently Supreme Court approved Affordable Healthcare plan will soon help them address.  The 3-strikes laws was said to not be racist, but it disproportionately affects black and brown minorities. The stats and figures all bear this out, a wink to white supremacy. No affirmative action rules, another wink to white supremacy. The Tea Party itself grew out of latent racism, many winks to white supremacy.

I can already hear them typing away saying that MG is making this racial, President Obama is half white. Really? We all make choices, some have embraced and internalized the tenets of White Supremacy, some look the other way and live their lives and there are others who shine a light on the cracks in order for us to have a better society. A position that was job of the NEWS, long ago when they served the public by informing them. Barack Obama had a white mother, grew up in a white home, so tell me how could he possibly relate to the average black person? Barack made black oriented choices for his destiny. He married Michelle, who is a descendant of a fully black slave. A woman he loves and with whom he had children with, thereby blackening his family’s line. It is primarily Barack Obama’s presence outside of sports and hip-hop that his staunchest supporters hate. He even draws the ire of black commentators, who constantly try to curry favor with networks and the masses, but fail to realize that Barack presence has increased their network viability ten-fold. They should be thanking Barack for running, winning and not sitting still, after all he does give them things to blather on about. This, and Clint Eastwood talking to s chair, is what happens when reasonable minds surrender the stage to charletons.

Then there are those whom our system doesn’t work for when they are losing, the Republicans. The Republicans are using Mitt Romney to gain power and cloud minds, yet they don’t like him, they don’t even trust him, furthermore he has streaks. The Republicans have to put out a candidate to get three billion of your tax dollars, through Matching Funds. These political parties put out a candidate, even when they know they can’t win…see the 2008 election. When what the public, through congress, should be asking why is the US militarily pushing further into Asia? If American foreign policies are correct why pay countries to not protest them? Why is the US selling  fighter jets to Taiwan? Why does the US have troops in 159 countries? Why have embassies in countries that don’t want us there? Why is the US spending 200 million in South America to run guns, drugs and cartel support, but instead of our media investigating and posing these questions we are presented with disingenuous polls on ‘which candidate treats their dog better?’  The Republicans knew the economy was going to be broken for an extended period of time and they didn’t want to be at the heart of that crap storm, just look at Europe. They assisted the Democrats in taking control of the government, to fix it. Once that is completely they will put forth real candidates for the prosperity era. This is how it is, this is how it is done. they talk of “Freedom” as if these white conservatives know anything about being oppressed. Try asking them that on Meet the Press, everything else is filler and rhetoric and the rhetoric is simply fear.

When the superstorm Sandy pounded the East Coast, President Obama toured the situation with Governor Chris Christie. The President freed up funds and cleared red tap and Governor Christie praised his efforts. Many in the republican party came out against Christie for praising the President, even though Christie was urged to run for president, but he declined. Any credit that the president deserves is always couched by negativity and racism. An AP study actually shows that racism towards blacks has increased to 51% of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, since Barack Obama has been in office, so how much of this criticism of the President is actually racism? Neither liberals, nor conservatives are not destroying the country, the truth is that humans are failing humanity. Being liberal or conservative  is not a bad thing, but it is never good when it is financially or racially motivated. It’s time to accept that the era of White Supremacy is coming to an end. Conservatism, which is White Supremacy, has failed. And America–thankfully–is distributing more power to minorities, gays, liberals, and women. “Minorities” don’t like being minorities, so it must be terrifying for those in the dominate culture to slowly see their race becoming a minority one. Conservatives know that they have lost and are now attempting only to slow down the process and softening the landing. Whites folks, you don’t have to like it, but you should accept it.
