What the black church does not understand about Sin vs Mental Illness

Yes I’m still burned up at the black church for recognizing $100 bills of parishioners instead of helping them with mental illness.

Sin vs Mental Illness

The ‘sin’ in the Bible is actually undocumented mental illness. Those people were not sinners. They were mental patients who were handled horribly and incorrectly.

Those mental patients in the Bible were

  1. Stoned to death
  2. Impaled
  3. Crucified
  4. Maimed
  5. Hung
  6. Flogged
  7. Beat to death and tied to pillars
  8. Burned at the Stake
  9. Strangled
  10. Assaulted beyond belief

The mental patients in the Bible who were mislabeled as sinners were more than likely sociopaths, anti-social personality disorders and some may have been on the autism spectrum through no fault of their own.

The perfect brain consists of 50% white matter and 50% grey matter. The autism spectrum is on the grey matter scale. The sociopathic spectrum is on the white matter scale.

People like Jim Jones, Charles Manson, and Ted Bundy are on the white matter scale, meaning, that they have a higher percentage of white matter rather than grey matter. The frontal cortex is damaged. Either they were born that way or had an organic brain injury. This leaves people on that scale unable to empathize or rationalize right from wrong. Shortly stated- Their brains don’t work right. They need help.

The autism spectrum means they have more grey matter than white matter. They are gifted. As we see in the Bible gifted people are stoned or burned.

Those ‘sinners’ in the Bible needed help. Not stoning. Praying for them or as the book of Romans states ‘leave them to themselves because they refuse to obey’. They can’t obey! They have a brain disorder.

God flat out abandons those people in Romans whose frontal cortex was not functioning properly. Didn’t God create them?

Sampson of Sampson and Delilah is a classic case of an autistic man who felt no physical pain, and overall wasnt to bright, who had the misfortune of getting involved with a woman who had too much white matter. Clearly Delilah had an anti-social personality disorder. She felt no remorse for anything she did to anybody.

Job from the book of Job was checked out mentally. In today’s world he’s one who asks you for a quarter at 5 Points Marta station in Atlanta while telling you the wondrous works of the Lord.

Lot and his daughters would be in prison and their kids would be in DFCS.

Adam and Eve would be in lock up with Balaam from Numbers for talking to serpents and donkeys.

Jephthah’s daughter was a spoiled brat who by today’s standards would have been in alternative school or expelled for her bratty behavior. Juvenile detention is more like it.

and Nebuchadnezzar’s whole dinner party would be on medication for seeing a hand writing on a wall. Mass hallucination.

What the Black Church Needs to Realize

Black churches need to realize that mental illness exists. Praying against sin is really praying against someone else’s unchecked or undocumented mental illness. Mental illness cannot be prayed against or changed. It can only be managed or helped with medication and a mental health professional.

The Stigma on mental health in the black church and community

Black people refuse mental help, even when they have insurance on the job to pay for it. The reason is they don’t feel like the stigma.

They don’t want to be labeled as crazy.

They don’t want to be accused of ‘acting white’.

They don’t want don’t want to appear to turn your back on Jesus who is supposed to fix it while you sit there praying.

So in order to avoid the stigma when you know something if flat out wrong just go ahead and to sit around really crazy rather than be ousted from the community for helping improve yourself.

This makes sense to who???

Why is there so much crime in the black community?

Answer: Because Mental illness in the black community is unbridled and rampant

Here are the two main reasons.

#1. The black church

#2. Africa. Yes I am blaming the whole continent of Africa.

The Black Church’s answer for mental illness consist of 3 initial words.

  1. Pray
  2. About
  3. It

The catch 22 in the black church

  1. If you trust Jesus then you won’t go to ‘white folks’ for therapy.
  2. If you go to ‘white folks’ for therapy then you don’t trust in Jesus.

The Stigma if you go to ‘white folks’ anyway

  1. You are ‘crazy’ if you seek mental help outside of the church and Jesus.
  2. You are supposed to have the church and the pastor pray for you so you won’t look crazy.

Racism in the black church

  1. The black church will tell you that ‘white folks’ just want your money and tell you anything posing as an ‘overpaid hand holder’.
  2. If you go see therapy then you are “acting white”.

Question: What kind of sense does this make?

Answer: None what so ever

Racism in the black community

To protect the person I’m using the letter R.

Person R was 5 years old in 1972. A white lady day care worker told Person R’s mother that he had a developmental disability. Person R’s mother cussed out the lady and said she was just saying this because he is black. She then withdrew him from that daycare and placed him in a black daycare where no questions were asked.

Person R is now in his early 50’s and just found out that he has had a mental disability his whole life that went unchecked. He was glad to hear it because it answered so many questions. At the same time he was sad because he could have received help at an earlier age.

Because of racism his mother robbed him of receiving the help he needed 46 years ago. He’s now receiving the help and doing well. His mother has passed away so he cannot address the issue with her. He is angry but working through that anger.

How many more Person R’s do we have around here?

 

Why do I blame the whole continent of Africa and all 54 countries inside of it?

Because the concept of mental illness in Africa is null and void. Its non-existent. There is no such thing. We are the descendants of that flawed belief system and its stuck in our DNA to pray about everything or ward off a spirit.

The slaves brought this flawed belief system with them and it’s been taught here in America for over 400 years.

It’s a wrong theory.

There is no spirit and somehow the whole continent in today’s time missed the Bible verse James 2:26 – Prayer without works is dead.

69 million black Americans also missed that bible verse, even though, they go to church every Sunday for the social event.

We need to remove this flawed belief and start recognizing mental illness in the black community or its just going to get worse.

Black Churches and Glorifying the Bible with Mental Illness

I’ve had 4 shout outs with black churches at a picnic over this subject and this subject alone. Here we go again.

Using the Bible as a reference for mental illness is never a good idea because the concept of mental illness is not addressed in the Bible.

Here Are Some Solid Examples of Mental Illness and Brain Disorders Not Being Addressed In the Bible

Abraham sacrificing his son

If I decide to sacrifice my son today I would be in a mental institution with a white jacket and long white arms. I would also be heavily medicated with pills and IV’s. I would also be charged with kidnapping, since I would tie him to a rock, attempted murder, since I would have a dagger of some sort to kill him with, luring under false pretenses, and animal cruelty since I would have tied a ram in a bush to jump out at the last minute. Mentally I would be diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and throw some bi-polar on top of that.

However, Abraham is hailed as a biblical hero for trying to kill his son after a schizophrenia episode of hearing voices in thin air.

Mark 7:30 – The Epileptic Fit

The girl had a “demon” that they called an “unclean spirit”. Epilepsy was unknown at that time and it is not a mental illness. It has to do with the brain. Anything they did not understand in the Bible was referred to as a demon or unclean spirits. The girl clearly had epilepsy. In today’s world she would receive medical help and her parents educated on what to do if this happens.

Romans 1:24 – Mentally ill population

Most of Romans speaks of the sociopath spectrum which consists of anti-social personality disorders. White matter vs grey matter in the brain. Too much white matter causes a person to behave against society and they have to remorse for anything they do. Again. Mental illness is not a concept in the Bible.

This leaves the question of why would God create someone with mental illness, then punish the person he created for not following the rules, when the person cannot follow the rules to begin with, because they were born with a non-functioning full brain?

The Book of Hosea – That wife Gomer

Classic case of a sociopath paired with an empath. Hosea was a hard working straight shooting honest respectable man trying to make a living for himself in B.C. times. He follows the rules of society. Gomer was a straight sociopath, pathological liar, loosy goosy on the streets, and had no remorse for her actions and disrespected Hosea every chance she got. Gomer needed behavioral therapy and some kind of lithium. Hosea was uneducated on mental illness, therefore, he could not give her the help she needed.

The Bible gives a happy ending, however, with sociopaths there is no happy ending. Gomer never changed her ways. Without help or isolating them they will make your life miserable because they have no remorse. This particular story of Hosea and Gomer gives a false hope and is a bad representation of a relationship with a mentally ill person. It’s not all rainbows and roses as this story leads you to believe.

Sampson had autism and he was kind of slow to not see through Delilah’s tricks.

Job had some retardation. To go along with a bet between God and Satan to mess you up like that and say its in the name of the Lord when Satan is clearly involved means that you have a mental disturbance.

Yet, black churches will use dysfunctional Biblical relationships like these as role models for praying away a spirit.

Question: Why Do American Women Flush Public Toilets With Thier Foot and Stoop Over The Seat?

Answer: Because of Segregation

How and why did segregation change something as trivial as toilet flushing in American Women’s bathrooms?

During Segregation

There were separate bathrooms, water fountains, sinks and locker rooms. White women and Black women sat on the toilet seat in the segregated bathrooms without giving it a second thought. They flushed the toilet with their hands like normal people without issue.

It was thought that the white bathroom had all white women so its okay. The colored bathroom had all colored women so its okay.

After Segregation

White women and colored women now have to share a bathroom. Each party thought that the other party was filthy in some form.

The white women thought that the black women had a different monthly period than themselves. And the black women thought that white women’s periods were different then their own.

The white ladies did not want to sit on the toilet after a black lady, especially if there was a period going on, and a black lady did not want to sit on the toilet after a white lady, because of a period.

They also did not want to touch the toilet handles after each other for fear of catching something filthy or because one of the party’s may touch the handle with period blood still on her hands. Or she didn’t change her ‘belt free’ right and you never know so just don’t touch anything after her.

Result

Do not sit on the toilet. Stoop over it and pee. If a lady of a different color was waiting to use the toilet and you happen to ‘spray’ the seat don’t wipe it off for her.

If you are on a period go ahead and flush but if some sprayed on the seat, leave it there.

Do not flush the toilet with your hands because you don’t know if someone from the other party may have touched it. You don’t want their ‘nastiness’.

Do not touch the sink handles or use the soap because the other party may have touched it.

This makes sense to who?

Around the time of segregation women were teaching their daughters this public restroom habit of not touching anything because ‘she’ may have touched it and she has a period.

Those daughters in turn taught the granddaughters this habit stating ‘germs’.

Now the great granddaughters of the original teachers are carrying on this habit with no history to why they are doing it.

But guess what ladies! Women still have to pee and we all have periods! There is no way around it.

Today

Today there are toilet liners in the bathrooms to separate you from the last person who sat on the toilet. I will have to say that toilet liners #1. are too cold and #2. does not stop the ‘spray’ from the previous person. You still have to wipe someone else’s pee off the seat which is totally disgusting.

Also there are still women under the pretense of ‘do not flush’ so the other person can be offended when they go to the bathroom.

I called a woman out on this once at work. She got up and walked out leaving everything in the toilet, and the toilet liner, and toilet paper, on the toilet. I demanded she go back and flush the toilet and clean up after herself! She was 54 years old. Old enough to know better.

We had a heated argument at the sink. Another lady came in. I told on her to the other lady. There was a battle in front of the stalls but we got the lady to at least flush the toilet. She just flat out did not want to flush the toilet stating that she was in a rush. She refused to remove the liner and the paper. She ran out of the bathroom mad and cussing at us. Called us childish. And she’s the one we had to make flush a toilet! Go figure on that one.

So we reported her to HR as a Bio Terrorist because not flushing the toilet after she let loose like that is Bio Terrorism in the ladies bathroom. You don’t want those fecal matter particles flying around because someone truly had no home training for 54 years!

Ladies, this is how we have start handling these non toilet flushers. Confront them as a group and use force if necessary. Make her understand that this is unacceptable and we’re not having it!

And another thing. Flushing those toilet liners does stop up some public toilets making the stall out of order. Crumble it up and put in the tampon box or something.

Stooping over the women’s toilet

This habit that started in America during integration has caught on around the world. There are now women in other countries doing this with no history as to why they are doing it. Its just the thing to do. In today’s world its to protect from ‘germs’.

Where were these ‘germs’ during segregation? Where were those germs 1000 years leading up to segregation?

If you have to do #2 or if you are on your period and have to handle business

Every woman has been caught at some point or another in 1 or both situations above. I know I have. You go in the bathroom, the toilets are all nasty because they’re not flushed, and your pad is overflowing or your tampon is falling out quickly or just making you mad. You then have to clean up another heifers mess just so you can take care of you. Its not fair to you or anybody else coming in behind that kind of Bio Terrorism. 

At that point you have no choice but to use that cold toilet liner, sit down and do what you have to do.

THEN

There’s always those TWO.

You know the 1 who comes into the bathroom on the phone and immediately goes to the stall next to you even though there are 1 million other stalls. And talks on the phone as loud as she can about absolutely nothing.

Then the other one who comes into the bathroom and has to stand in the mirror and put on make up for 8 hours and looks no different than when she first came in there.

Meanwhile you’re ripping pads or opening tampons and doing number two all while the person who is on the other end of the phone in the next stall can hear you poop, rip a pad, and flush the toilet.

THAT IS SOOOOO DANG RUDE! OMG!

If I could shoot women who do this I swear to God I would!

Just for kicks. I flush the toilet repeatedly to mess up her phone conversation. I started to throw a tampon once but I couldn’t waste a perfectly good tampon still in the wrapper!

There should be laws against talking on phones in the bathroom. Its just so tacky and inconsiderate.

Last: Flushing with the foot

Before segregation women did not do this. After segregation foots were flying.

Even the biggest girl will get that foot up there to flush the toilet. Why? She doesn’t even know why.

I’ve been in bathrooms where there are signs that say do not flush the toilet with your foot. The girls do it anyway.

But here’s the dilemma.

I saw a whole soccer team in the bathroom with mud and grass on their shoes. They flushed the toilet with their foot. Everybody that came behind them had to wet paper towel and clean off the handle before using the toilet.

The other dilemma is the handicapped and midgets.  The handicapped cannot flush the toilet with their foot depending on her handicap. Wheel chairs, cerebral palsy, or no legs at all is an issue. Is it fair to them to have to touch a handle where your dirty shoes have been?

Midgets are too short and even with a jump kick a midget cannot flush with her foot. The handle comes up to her waist. What is she supposed to do?

The women’s bathroom situation is totally out of hand across the world

Because of segregation in America we have countless ignorant scenarios around the world.

We are human and we have to pee. Women have that extra factor of monthly terrorism.

Women are terrorized at every public toilet from some female jerk not wanting to flush a toilet or clean up her own spray.

What is so dang ole hard about flushing a toilet!!!!!!

Why is it so difficult for these tricks to look back when she leaves a stall!!!!

Malls, Restaurants, Libraries, Church, Schools, Six Flags, Stadiums, Expos, you name it! If women are there doing what their grandmothers taught them then we just have to understand that we will be offended for the rest of our lives in the women’s bathroom.

 

Periods

Every woman’s period works the same way regardless of what color she is or what country she’s in. The way a woman handles it is a different story. Some girls were simply not taught how to dispose of maxi pads properly and that has nothing to do with her color and everything to do with poor parenting.

Women suffer with cramps, heavy flows, fibroids, ovary and fallopian tube issues, tender breasts, PMS, we all hate men for 4 days, and pregnancy. None of these issues are different just because she’s Black, White, or Asian.

To refuse to flush a toilet with hands or touch faucets all because somebody thinks somebody else has a different period is ignorance at the highest level!

Thought

For you women who refuse to flush a toilet in public! What kind of filth does your house look like???? Do you flush your toilet at home or leave it looking like you do at the public restroom? Then you bring food to a pot luck at work or church? I won’t be attending or eating anything you fix.

The Stupidity Of The Term African American. Round 2!

The Rumble Continues!!

boxing-bell

Over the term African American!!

I have a United States Government issued Passport that says United States of AMERICA!

passport

It does not say United States of African American!

I truly hate that label.

Some people were offended at my original post on this term and all I can say is: Yall missed the point!

I refuse to be labeled African American. The term African American will not be used on this site by me. And on any job application I fill out I scratch out the word African and circle the word American as my passport correctly suggests. And no where on my birth certificate does it say African American.

Africa was not called Africa until somewhere around 262 BCE. A Roman explorer went the land of KEMET and renamed it Africa after himself.

Italian General Scipio Africanus clearly saw that people were living happily on the Serengeti and calling themselves something else and he took it upon himself to rename the whole thing Africa, after himself, citing that he discovered it. It didn’t matter that people were already there.

Sound familiar?

Amerigo Vespucci discovered the main land in the west and called it America while Christopher Columbus gets all the credit and Amerigo is left in the cold.

Other names for Africa before it was called Africa were:

Corphype

Olympia

Egupe

Hesperia

Ortegia

Tamarie

Sudan

And Ethopia

All the more reason why  African American makes no sense!

They were not calling themselves African.

The title should be Kemet American, or Hesperia American and so on.

Why did Sipio Africanus change the history of the continent?

From what I could find in my research.

He felt like it. Knew he could do it without any opposition. And did what he chose.

So does the term African American fit?

No. Its not even the original name of the continent. Plus, Jesse Jackson pushed this agenda to further separate black people from the rest of the country and keep in line with his perfect world of a Bi-Polar segregated racists America.

This label of African American is all his doing!

Stop giving into Jesse Jackson! He, and he alone, has done the most damage to America with the target audience of damaging black people the most!

The Ku Klux Klan can and should be legalized

Here is how it should be done.

It should be a Federal Group.

Meaning the official application for the KKK should go through the Federal Government with an application fee of $100 cash for processing, filing, and placing the name on the official Klan register. Application fee is non refundable. All applications will be accepted as long as the $100 cash is paid. Then the applicant will proceed with the interview process.

The applicant must be 18 years old before the application will be considered.

The interview process must prove that you are white and you are Christian.

Proving you are White

A. The potential applicant must list his/her heritage going back 10 generations. Every name must be listed or the application will be denied. Fabricated names result in automatic denial.

Names and ethnicities of maternal and paternal grandparents only. If a country of Origin can be named it will help.

B. Once the genealogy chart has been turned in he/she must participate in 4 separate DNA tests confirming that all forefathers and great mothers were from a White country or a country that is 99% White. The official country list guideline will include the following White countries:

  • Greenland
  • Iceland
  • Scandinavia
  • Finland
  • Norway
  • Northern Russia
  • Estonia
  • Latvia
  • Denmark

Countries that do not count as White

Germany, UK and Ireland, Poland, France, Romania, Italy, Canada and Ukraine cannot count as white because of the high African, Asian, and Jewish population (more than 5%). Canada has the First People’s (Natives), Africans, and Black Americans. The potential for pure whiteness in these countries will be diminished.

If the DNA test shows any other country than the ones listed above then the KKK membership will be automatically denied. Once the membership is denied the potential applicant will be sent a letter stating that he/she is not white, the reasons why, and their name placed on a list of non whites who applied to the Klan.

Proving you are a Christian

a. A multiple choice Bible test will be given with 200 questions from the Old and New Testament. True and false and choose the right answer. 185 questions must be answered correctly or your application will be denied.

b. A 300 word essay must be written on why you feel you are a good White Christian as opposed to some other Christian.

c. A face to face interview will be held with the administrative assistant to the group where you will state what you will contribute to America as the DNA proven superior white race.

Certificate

Once all tests are completed and essays approved the applicant will be rewarded a certificate. Their names will be placed on an official registry along with the copy of the certificate and a monogrammed Confederate Flag with your name will be handed to you as a free gift. You will also receive a discount Wal-Mart purchase towards a rifle.

(not everyone who has a confederate flag is Klan, however, all Klan seem to have a confederate flag)

Dues

Your tax-deductible monthly dues of $20, or annual dues of $216 (10% discount for paying up front) will be required to retain the membership and certificate status. If you do not pay your dues by December 31st of each year you will be asked to return your certificate and your confederate flag as a reprimand for disrespect. You can keep your gun.

Meetings

Required monthly meetings and one required annual convention with a documented check in will be required to keep membership and certificate status. You must bring your certificate and confederate flag to the annual convention.

Where is the logic in this?

None. Just like the hate group. But if the government knew that they could make money off of this they most certainly would. This would be the first step in many steps to getting started.

Jesse Jackson’s Role In The Death Of Martin Luther King

April 3, 1968 Jackson stands with King on the balcony.                                                                                                                                                                                                                              April 4, 1968 Jackson is not on this balcony at all.

April 4 1968 FBI Agent holding KingApril 3 1968 King and Jackson

 

 

 

 

Jesse Jackson’s Role In The Death Of Martin Luther King

Simply put, he didn’t have one. He had absolutely nothing to do with King’s assassination in any way, shape, form, or fashion. Nothing.

Jesse Jackson was hiding behind an above ground swimming pool several feet away from where Martin Luther King was assassinated. He cut himself running from the sound of gun shots and used his turtleneck to wipe his own blood. He blatantly walked on to the balcony and collected King’s blood to add to his turtleneck as Andrew Young stated several times.

Later, he would take the opportunity to jump in front of cameras claiming that King died in his hands on the balcony.

Like they say in Georgia. A lie don’t care who tell it!  Mr. Jackson sure does fit that phrase.

Proven Undisputable Facts:

Fact: Jackson was relatively new in King’s movement and had not known him that long personally.

Fact: King had stated he received bad vibes from the new comer Jackson.

Fact: Jackson did not get along with King that well, yet, King had enough grace about himself to let it slide and distance himself from Jackson.

Fact: On the Balcony were Andrew Young, Ralph Abernathy, Hosea Williams, Henry Groskinsky (photographer), and Ben Branch (musician ), Army Veteran Marrell McCollugh (The man holding King’s head while he died).

Fact: Over 10 people witnessed Jackson hiding and running out from behind a raised pool and heard him say “Don’t you talk to the press, whatever you do.”

Fact: He went to Theology school and failed so bad he dropped out. After he dropped out he referred to himself as a Reverend with no credentials to back it up.

April 5, 1968:

Jackson appears on the NBC Today Show still in the blood stained shirt. The lies continue on television and he proclaims himself some sort of a national black leader. Since April 5, 1968 Jackson has used Martin Luther King’s good name for his own gain and profit, to manipulate emotions of the less intelligent, to make himself a millionaire, to rob people of religious beliefs and money, and has used false charisma to keep the charade going forever.

Jesse Ousted:

He’s been ousted 100 times over and does not care. Why doesn’t he care? Because he has tricked and duped so many people into believing that the ‘ousters’ are nothing more than jealous lying trouble makers. He’s always the victim to feel sorry for. Right? The more he’s ousted the more he can cry victim.

The most popular ousters are listed below:

“Shakedown” exposing the real Jesse Jackson Author Kenneth R. Timmerman

“Unmasking Jessie Jackson” Angela Parker, Chicago Tribune, 1971

“Jesse Jackson. The Man The Myth The Movement” America’s David by Barbara Reynolds

Truth Tellers Harassed Out Of Town:

The people above were harassed and threatened by Jesse Jackson lovers who #1. Know the truth and refuse to admit it #2. Don’t know the truth and #3. Actually believe he’s a real Reverened and an honest guy sent from God.

They do not know the level of what kind of fraudulent manipulative liar he truly is.

Traits Of Sociopaths: The first move is to have a sob story to hook the victim.

Opportunistuses any tragic or misfortune of another person to promote or propel him/herself into the spotlight and make it all about them.

Pathological liarOnce the spotlight has been obtained and a captive emotional audience is present every word he/she speaks will be seen as the truth because people need something to believe in after their hope has been taken away.

Charismaticappearances are everything. Sociopaths appear how they must appear to fit the circumstance and keep him/herself in the lured victims sight. Jackson requested a limo to take him to NBC while still wearing the same bloody shirt from the day before. Then put on a dog and pony show for the viewers and right after that all endorsements rolled in like a tidal wave.

Arrogance Self serving. Self centered. And anyone who gets in the way or disagrees with my greatness shall be excluded and shamed for not recognizing my greatness. No one is better than me and my followers are beneath me where they should be.

Thrives On Negative SituationsSociopaths like this thrive on anything going wrong. If they can’t find a bad situation they create one themselves. Bad situations gives them a chance to step in and be the hero for a never ending source of narcissistic supply which Jesse achieves from his followers. When the supply runs out, so does he and he finds new victims.

Why Are People Still Supporting This Man Who Is Clearly A Fraud?

#1. They cannot bring themselves to listen to or believe the truth about the dark deeds he’s done.

#2. He claims to be a Reverend. In the black community Reverend’s and Pastors are people of power and if you say you love the Lord. You’re in. Jesse knew this and used it to his advantage to rob blind followers using their faith.

#3. His followers have not heard the full story and are doing what they’re parents told them to do.

#4. Some black people honestly feel there needs to be a black leader for them. Jesse says he’s it so they do what he says without question.

#5. Jesse talks a good game, is very convincing, and knows how to manipulate others and cry on que to get an emotional response and keep them hooked emotionally.

What about the good stuff Jesse did like the non profit PUSH, Rainbow Coalition, and helping free prisoners over seas, and speaking out a Jena, and helping President Carter and Clinton, and all of the wonderful things he did for the country?

Jesse likes to highlight his good deeds and receive praise and hide the evil dark deeds in the closet. Every sociopath does this. It’s the “Look at me the good guy” routine.

For every good deed you see him do there’s 10 more bad deeds that outweigh those.

So the question is do we continue to oust him when all he’ll do it use it to his advantage for further emotional manipulation?

Or continue to praise him and stroke an already out of control ego?

Either way he’s going to rot in hell with his self-made solid gold halo that his followers worship.

Black History Fact: 1780 Slave woman Mum Bett uses US Constitution to win her freedom

Mum Bett

Mum Bett sued her slave owner. She won and was freed.

Hired a lawyer and sued her slave owner using her Constitutional rights and won

Massachusetts constitution, Article 1 leads to Court case Brom and Bett v. Ashley

Slave woman Elizabeth ( known as Mum Bett) Freeman could not read or write but found a lawyer to represent her and sue her master for freedom after hearing The Constitution read aloud.

“All men are born free and equal, and have certain natural, essential, and unalienable rights; among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; that of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property; in fine, that of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness”

Elizabeth did the following because she wanted freedom:

  • Found a lawyer Theodore Sedgewick to take her case.

  • Filed against her slave owner John Ashley.
  • Won her case. Was paid a reparation.
  • Her daughter remained a slave for a short time but Elizabeth was free.

She was the first slave to be set free under the United States Constitution.

Her case helped Massachusetts to end slavery in that state in the same year. Her daughter Betsy was set free later that year.

European Slave Licking And Hypertension In The Hood

salty slaves

Why hypertension is rampant in the black community?

I know what you’re thinking. Fat Back. Hog Malls. Pork. Potato chips. Funyuns and stuff. Salted Collard Greens. Fried anything. Reused grease in a Crisco can. All with a biggo glass of Kool-Aid! That’s actually 1% of the problem. Those things are not the cause. They also do not help. The real problem goes back to Africa.

Europeans Licked African Slaves

Not licks as in birthday licks. Licks as in Europeans stuck their tongues out of their mouths and licked the Africans face, neck, forehead, or chin leaving a wet wad of spit dripping down the African’s face. Disgusting. The reason for this was to test the salt content of the potential slave.

The slaves with lower salt content perished during the ocean crossing. Before they loaded the boat they potential merchandise with low salt content were sent home after a good licking. The higher salt content individuals were immediately loaded on to the boat. They survived the journey across the ocean.

What does this have to do with anything?

Salted Slaves that arrived in moderate health were incorporated into the plantations. To keep his slave healthy the owner continued to fill him with salt. Fast forward 300+ years and you have a society of slave descendants with uncontrolled hypertension.

Is black hypertension the slave owners fault?

Look at the facts. The high salt content existed before they were caught, licked, and loaded. Therefore, it would stand to reason that salt, health and diet were already a factor before a captor and a boat showed up with their tongues out.

What’s the solution?

High salt content was obviously a factor in Africa long before the slave traders arrived. A reasonable conclusion would be that its ingrained in the dna structure. If that conclusion is correct then hypertension would be a matter of a preconditioned disease that is hereditary.  This does not mean it cannot be controlled or monitored, however, due to genetics and lifestyle it’s certainly unavoidable in todays salty descendants that were forced on to a boat ride.

Salt in the black community

The hood does not have farmers markets, commercial grocery stores like Kroger, or small farms or greenhouses available for fresh fruits or vegetables to diffuse the salt. Bottled water is hard to find too. The hood has convenient stores on every corner interchanged with a liquor store. The convenient store has what? Salted snacks, sugary snacks, soft drinks, wretched hot dogs in a warmer, sorry pretzels and exactly 2 bottles of water that cost more than the soft drinks.

So if you are hungry in the hood and the nearest real grocery store is 15 miles away what is your option? The answer is to go to the convenient store and fill up on salty snacks. Therefore, aiding in the predisposed condition of hypertension.

Are Rap Lyrics to Blame for black violence and over-promotion of the infamous N word?

Rap music has been under fire for decades over degrading women of all types, over use of the N word, and promoting violence in the black community and indirectly blamed for high arrests. Lets take a look at song lyrics by Dr. Dre and a song by Soulja Boy as an example and see if these accusations against Rap music hold water.

Dr. Dre song lyricsSoulja Boy Song Lyrics

Hmmmmmmm……….

Based on these small samples here women are not placed in a positive light or respected. Weapons, drugs, and a play on the emotion of jealousy appears to be present. Dare I mention their other songs such as “Booty Meat” and “Ghetto Fabulous”? No I won’t because they are actually worse than this.

Dissecting the problem with Rap Music in the Black Community

There’s a lot to be said.

#1. Money to be made

Rappers and music industry are in business to make money. They don’t care who they hurt, how many people get killed, go to jail, or how many women are disrespected, or how many 5 year olds recite their lyrics in the kindergarten bus about B’s, hoes, wasting somebody or smoking marijuana or F the police. As long as they get paid for the music and have a nice car to showboat in Hollywood its all good to them.

Short and simple. If people stop buying rap music, then they would not have a business. However, is Rap Music to blame for the violence, disrespect of women and the overuse of the N word in the Black Community?

#2. Target audience

In Marketing it is stressed to Know Your Audience. You would not market to an area with a demographic that is less likely to buy your product. To ensure your product sells you have to know whose going to buy it. Rap Music is purchased by young white boys, then black boys, and last females. This is a given statistic fact that can be researched and verified.

This poses a problem. If young white boys are purchasing the music then why are they not killing each other after listening to these lyrics? Yet, the other groups seem to take it to heart. So if it’s the lyrics by themselves causing the behavior this is a failed argument based on the target audience.

#3. Environmental – The Hood

I live in The Hood. Children as young as 4 and 5 walk around here and go to school singing these exact Dr. Dre and Soulja Boy lyrics I showed you above. Imagine those words above coming out of an innocent child’s mouth who has no idea what these things mean. The parents play the music around the child thinking it has no effect. The child grows up in that environment. Sometimes Rap is the only music the child is exposed to. It becomes common place and nothing is thought about it.

Across the street from me the elementary school kids get off the school bus calling each other the N word. Kindergartners!  These high school girls dress scantily after school to immolate the girls in the rap videos while the high school boys rap these lyrics above to the girls. The girls giggle and like it. To them being called the B word is a compliment. The environment from children through teenagers has conditioned them to think this is normal or perfectly fine to speak, dress and behave this way.

Am I saying everyone in the hood acts like this? No. But a good majority in the hood do. Back to the question. Are the rap lyrics themselves causing these kids to behave this way? The lyrics are not stating how to dress. Which means they have visual to go along with it.

#4. Parental Involvement

I’m a parent.  At age seven my kid was Daft Punk and Lenny Kravitz. He was one of the few black boys in the hood who liked jazz and classical music instead of rap. He heard the rap songs when his friends played it at their house but never really cared for it. Was it because I didn’t play it around him? Possibly. Or it just wasn’t in him to begin with. That’s another possibility.

I often ask myself two questions, “Why would a parent play this kind of music around a baby or child that can repeat what he or she hears?” and “When these kids are at school repeating these rap lyrics and the teachers hear them why are they not saying anything to the parents?”

The only answer I can come up with is the parents are not as involved as they should be with what their kids are listening to and when the school addresses anything with the parents I’m sure it turns into a fight. Therefore, the environment plays a large role again.

#5. Self Reflection

What are the young black girls hearing when they listen to these lyrics. They are hearing that “I should dress like a skank and shake my butt or a guy won’t like me”. What are the young black boys hearing? They are hearing that “women are here for sport, I have to carry a gun, sell or do drugs, and I need to break the law or I won’t get anywhere”. What are the children under ten years old hearing? They are hearing that “when I become a certain age this is what I must do in order to survive”. What are the parents hearing? Nothing. Because they are already conditioned to these thoughts.

What are young white kids hearing in rap music? They are hearing that “all black guys are thugs and all black women are good for is shaking her butt and likes to be called a hoe.”

#6. Conversation I had with a guy and a girl over rap music in a car

Me: Why do you listen to this crap?

Guy: What crap! This is my jam!

Me: He’s disrespecting women, talking about drug use and basically being a big jerk. You enjoy this?

Girl: You taking it personal. It’s just a song. Nobody takes this stuff to heart.

Me: So you don’t think these lyrics are seeping into young people’s minds and running in the background?

Girl: No! Anybody who thinks that is just stupid.

Me: What about the 5 year olds I heard repeating these lyrics.

Guy: That’s the parents fault. You can’t blame a kid whose parents don’t monitor him.

Girl: We’re big enough to know that these songs are just songs.

Me: So neither of you see any problem whatsoever with the messages that are being sent by these songs!

Both: No! People blow it out of proportion! They’re just songs.

Me: What about non black people who listen to these songs and think this is how black people are? Based on these songs.

Girl: They stupid!

The Question

Are Rap Lyrics to Blame for black violence and over-promotion of the infamous N word?

If it’s the lyrics alone causing the problem and other people who are not black are also listening to the music then the problem should be wide-spread and not contained to black people. That’s not happening, therefore it cannot be the lyrics.

Is it the videos? Non black people watch the rap videos and still, there is no widespread violence so it can’t be the videos.

Is it peer pressure? Since the friends are acting this way and listening to them music they listen to it too? Not likely. Non black people listen as well and don’t have the problem.

Is it the environment? If the household environment promotes this kind of energy and is encouraged by the legal guardians or parents then yes it is a possibility that it is the environment.

Is it the parents or the neighborhood they live in? Given the conversation I had with the two in the car who honestly felt that it’s just music and whoever takes this to heart is “stupid”, that raises several questions, issues, and flags. Rap music is played over seas and they look at black Americans in a different light than black Americans see themselves. Black America does not see this.

The parents listen to this music avidly around the children. To the kids its just background noise just like the two said in the car. What’s not being realized is that kids are impressionable. They take what they hear to heart. Uninformed parents or parents who are lacking in attention won’t know this.

If a child from the age of being able to speak starts to hear and repeat that they should carry guns, do drugs, shoot or kill anybody who gets in your way and girls are here for sport, and is conditioned to this thought pattern from birth; does this not sound like a set up?

The Rap Music Industry

They just want to make money. Whatever else happens is not their problem. As long as their pockets are lined and people buy their music the perceptions, the arguments, the anger, and the questions around their morality is a null and void subject.

Is Rap music a positive functional type of music with family values to hold to? Some people think so. But no, its a dysfunctional mess that was introduced into an already dysfunctional society and based on the samples above it can have an effect on the psyche.

At the same time nobody is forcing anyone to listen to it or not to listen to it. Rap music lyrics are not the problem by themselves. However, Rap music plus the hood is a bad combination. The proof is when 5 year olds are at the bus stop calling each other B’s and N’s thinking this is a normal way to address someone before school. Is it the 5 year olds fault?

Why The Term African American Makes No Sense

Before yall get mad hear me out. The term African American is a forced label. I refuse to be called African American because I am American. I am not the only one who is aggravated enough by this forced label to speak out against it.

**There are WHITE Africans who were born in Africa. So this term can be applied to white Americans given the logic of the term. Which means, we’re all African Americans!!**

#1. Africa is a CONTINENT and not a country. Africa has over 50 countries inside of the continent including Islands. To call someone African American and not naming which of the countries the African supposedly came from is an incomplete statement.

#2. Jessie Jackson pushed this term African American in 1990 to further his agenda of separation and hate against white people. Most of his followers either skipped geography or fell asleep during class. I say this because I have come across many many people that do NOT know that Africa is a CONTINENT. They believe it is a country with one president.

I have tried to educate people with a RAND MCNALLY ATLAS, Google MAPS, and Google Earth. I circled Africa and pointed out each of the countries. In each case I ended up in a heated debate and called uppity and stuck up. Just because I know the difference between a CONTINENT and a COUNTRY.

#3. I know 3 African Americans. One is from the Ivory Coast. One is from Morocco. One is from Nigeria. They were born in Africa. They came to America as adults. Thus, they are truly African Americans.

The term African American does not, and should not, apply to anybody who was born in America whose birth certificate has a city and state listed. If it does not say Africa, or list any country in Africa then I am sorry to tell you that you are not African. You are American only.

Map of Africa with countries.

African Continent

Below are questions that people keep asking.

Question:

My ancestors came from Africa on a slave ship. How does that not make me African American?

Answer:

The Africans from the slave ship were not or addressed as Africans. They were not even classified as Americans. They were seen as property and chattel. They were labeled as disposable income and slaves with a price around their neck. Literally!

If they were not referred to as African Americans from 1694 through 1990 when Jessie Jackson pushed the agenda then why do you want to be referred as that label now? Why not be called Americans as opposed to comparison with a disposable slave?

What is so wrong about simply being called AMERICAN no matter what your skin tone is?

Question:

Well Irish people can be called Irish Americans and Native Americans can be called Native Americans so why can’t I be called African American?

Answer:

Ireland is a country with Irish people in it. Africa is a Continent with countries in it and then cities and people. There is a difference.

Native Americans did not migrate to, or forced to, come to this country. They were already here. They are the Natives to this land that is now called America. Therefore they are truly Native Americans. Again, its not the same thing as African Americans.

Below is a list of African countries inside the continent of Africa.

List of Countries in Africa

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If someone cannot show proof of, or name which country in Africa they supposedly came from, in their life time, then that label does not apply to them.

Side note: After Jessie got his hands on a poem entitled “I Can” by Johnny Duncan he took the phrase and ran with it and gave himself credit for the term African American. Now its on all applications wrongfully and falsely accusing people of being from Africa with no such evidence.

Additional side note: We established earlier that there are White people in Africa which, by default, extends the label of African American to White people. I have this to say to my fellow White Brothers and Sisters, Welcome! We love you. Begin immediately marking African American on all applications because it just makes sense! Spread the word.

Atlanta Georgia: 5 points Marta Station, Kenny’s Ally and the Slave Trade With Video

Before some of y’all get mad and start acting up just hear me out.

Go to Georgia State University History Department on the top floor and ask for the Sanborn Fire Insurance maps from 1884-1922.
Then go to the Atlanta Public Library to the reference section and the genealogy section and look at city maps from 1853, 1863, 1865, and 1870. All of what I am about to say can be researched, and verified by pulling maps, reading old newspapers, and doing your own research at libraries and reference tables.

Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps

According to the Sanborn Fire Insurance maps of 1884 the slave auction blocks were still in place in Kenny’s Ally and Forsyth and Alabama Streets. Also, slave drop offs, pickups, and selling points had not been removed in downtown Atlanta.

The Kenny’s ally auction block was located where the Welcome To Underground sign is now, next to the escalator goes down to the Underground Shops.

The 5 points block was located at Forsyth and Alabama Streets across from the 5 Points Marta Station. The blocks have been removed but the spaces where the blocks were is still empty today.

Google Maps

I used Google Maps as an overlay to the Sanborn maps to see which streets and railroad tracks are still in existence today. The railroad tracks that go under CNN, behind the old Atlanta Journal Constitution building and continues to The Underground are the same railroad tracks that carried carts full of slaves. The train route has not changed. They had a slave drop at Forsyth and Alabama Streets and at Kenny’s Alley.

Click on this link to see the slave store/slave holding pin on Atlanta’s Whitehall Street from 1863. The building in this picture is where slaves were held in pins and also auctioned before being transported to Kenny’s Ally or Forsyth Street. General Sherman burned
this and other buildings during his famous march on Atlanta.

http://www.mrlincolnandfreedom.org/photo_credits.asp?photoID=23&subjectID=2&ID=5

Garnett Street 1863

According to the 1863-64 maps Garnett Street and Whitehall Street intersected. The business district was at the corner of that intersection. After overlaying the maps again that intersection has been replaced with the Greyhound Bus Station and the Garnett Marta
Station today.

Click on this link to see the Sanborn maps. If the link does not work type in Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps. After you get into the link you have to type in each street name, city, and sometimes the year in order to view the map.

Post Slave Meeting Spot. Alabama & Forsyth Streets

After slavery ex-slaves wanted to be united with their families. They decided that Alabama and Forsyth streets would be the official meeting place. According to the archives and the Atlanta History Center that corner has been the meeting place since the end of slavery.

That location is extremely close to where the original auction block was located. Today there is no auction block.

However, black people still stand there all day long waiting on family members, friends, or meet people. I have stood there too waiting on a ride after work but was not a part of the loitering crowd.

At Kenny’s Ally, Whitehall Street, and 5 Points there is no marker, no sign, and no post, stating the initial use of these areas. There is no marker near the Garnett Train station or anywhere around that area identifying where the slave holding house and auctions took
place. Many people have no idea how close they are to history and that they are standing on a hot history spot.

A history of a train stopping, people being pulled off in chains and shackles, and led straight to auction block and sold. Sometimes they were stripped naked, beaten and whipped, held in a pen, or in some cases killed in broad daylight if the ‘cargo’ did not cooperate during the auction.

The Marta

A train still stops there delivering black people from around the world to that spot. Its called MARTA.

5 Points Entertainment- Unofficial Gold Chain Franchises 

While researching this I had one question. For those same two questionable bad customer service gold chain selling reps. Who walk around with a shoe box with those weak, tired, sad, sorry, spray painted fake gold chains and cussed me out when I would not buy one. And to all the other colorful characters who stand there all day not catching the bus, not working, and just hanging
out bothering working people.

Do they have any idea or the slightest clue as to why they are standing in, or choosing, that particular location to wait for their friends and act up all day? Do they even know the history of that spot?

If they knew the background as to why they were standing there, would they still  cling to that corner?

Should the brown signs be placed in downtown Atlanta identifying where the auction blocks, slave holding, and original buildings were?

Why Reparations Makes No Sense

Warning: Highly Controversial/Highly Debatable/Heated Subject

Slavery goes back before Biblical times and nowhere in the Bible did it say that anybody was black or from Africa.

The following people would and should receive a reparations slavery check.

1. Michelle Obama, her mother and daughters.

2. Descendants of Native Americans who were enslaved for a short while.

3. Descendants of White Slaves. This is different from indentured servants.
They were really slaves who were white people.

4. Free Blacks who came to the United States as Free Blacks and were never enslaved and
their descendants were not enslaved either. They would receive reparations just
because they are black. That’s not right now is it?

5. Any white person, who is a descendant of a black person, who was passing
for white and never told the family they were actually born a black slave who looks white.

6. Descendants of the Africans who actually made it back to Africa either on
their own or with help.

7. Black WWII soldiers who were descendants of slaves who had babies during the war with
women overseas. This would include all countries.

8. Entertainers and famous people like Stevie Wonder, Colin Powell, OJ Simpson,
Flava Flave etc…

9. Descendants of escaped Slaves who joined the Northwestern Indian Tribes.
Those tribes would receive a check.

10. Descendants of the Black Alaskan Highway Men who worked on the Alaska Highway.

11. Descendants of escaped slaves who made it to Canada.

12. If a slave was freed by papers or bought his own freedom then his descendants
should not receive a check. Because he was legally free. But will still get one
just because they are black. That’s not right now is it?

13. Asian people who were forced to be slaves for some reason or another during slavery.
This means Asian people should get a check.

14. Me and my whole family.

15. Ireland. The whole country. Because some where brought here as slaves and were sent back. They are due reparations checks.

16. Hawaiians. Captain Cook enslaved many or at least tried very hard to make them slaves. They are due a check just because of the attempt to be enslaved.

17. The IRISH were brought to the US and enslaved for about ten years. They would receive a check as well.

Good luck!!!

This information on this touchy subject was gathered from several sources, debates,
conversations, and heated discussions. Information was also found posted online,
in magazines, books, and from those who filed to receive reparations checks.

Information was also found from those who filed, against those, who filed to receive
the reparations checks.

Either the whole world receives a check or we drop the subject. It’s too much to sort out on who’s legitimately who.

Open discussion starts now:

How the continent of Africa aids to mental illness of Black Americans

Africa

Mental illness is and always has been a major major issue on the continent of Africa. Why? Because the concept of mental illness does not exist in Africa. The notion or idea that someone’s brain is sick or diseased is not a factor of any sort in Africa.

On the continent of Africa, which has 54 countries inside of it, they believe in demons, gods, and possession of spirits. If someone is not following the cultural norm and doing wrong or injustices then it’s a demon or a spirit. Not a mental illness. The demon must be “prayed away”, “beat out”, or exorcised from the person. The spirit must be lifted from that person.

Descendants of Africans in America

The concept of mental illness does not exist in the black church. If brother Thomas is robbing fast food restaurants to get tithe money then he’s under a demon spirit. Brother Thomas needs to “Prayed for”, “Beat up” or “liberated” from that spirit. You have to pray really really hard for Brother Thomas so the spirit will stop controlling his soul to do robberies.

The apple does not fall far from the tree. Ever.

It’s in Black Americans’ DNA to reject the notion of mental illness or seek help. Everything is a spirit. This came straight from Africa.

Here is what is wrong with that theory.

#1. The person is suffering from mental illness and praying for him or beating him up is not getting him the help he needs.

#2. Suggesting that the person is easily influenced by a ‘spirit’ suggests that he or she is too weak minded of a person and the spirit can easily take over him or her and stay there.

#3. Using slavery as an excuse for the spirit taking over someone in today’s time

You are allowed to be depressed because of slavery

  1. There were more free black people than slaves up through 1865. All someone has to do is go to a library and study the stats and read a few books.
  2. There were black people who came here free, married other free persons, and had free babies. Those black people are not slave descendants.
  3. Choosing to use slavery as a crutch and remain ignorant.

Using slavery for or against depression in the black community has got to stop

  1. Using slavery for depression in the black community

Susan is depressed. Her grandmother tells her we used to be slaves so it’s okay if your depressed. This does not help Susan in any way, shape, form, or fashion.

Susan was never a slave. Slavery has nothing to do with why she’s depressed. The kicker is; nobody ever asked her why she’s depressed. It doesn’t matter. All that matters is slavery.

This keeps Susan in a mental spot where she’s already comfortable. The grandmother is using slavery as a mask to cover up why Susan is really depressed. She doesn’t want to know. Susan needs to speak with a professional and find the real cause basis of her depression.

Using slavery against depression in the black community

Susan is depressed. Her Uncle tells her there’s no reason why she should be depressed. Our ancestors made it through slavery so you should be able to figure your way out of whatever it is you think you’re depressed about.

This is not helping Susan at all. She is not our ancestors. She is Susan. Her depression has nothing to do with the ancestors.

1. This is discounting Susan’s feeling all together.

2. This is pushing Susan further into depression.

3. This telling Susan whatever she’s depressed about is not a bad as slavery so she should not be depressed at all.

4. This is telling Susan whenever you’re depressed think about slavery and how much harder they had it and you won’t feel depressed at all.

Using Slavery against somebody instead of getting them the help they need is not only a disservice to the person who really needs help, it’s also very very ignorant.

The News

Nothing burns me up more than seeing young black men on TV every night for committing crimes that could have been avoided had they received the proper mental help at an early age.

Many have tried to get a handle on mental illness in the black community. The black church stops it every single time. Its time she shut that notion down and held black churches responsible for making sure everyone has proper mental health.

We can no longer accept the incorrect notion of “just pray about it”. That notion came from the continent of Africa and that notion is wrong.

Christine and Millie McCoy. Black Siamese Twins Black History Month Ignores.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

I have a serious problem with this and yes I am Black. The only thing I actually like about Black History month is that it’s not being called “African American” History month. Because that would be “stupider”.

TWO REASONS IT SUCKS TO BE A SIAMESE TWIN

  1. DEATH

Your half could be perfectly healthy and the other half of you dies unexpectedly. Now you have to die too within an hour and its not even your fault that you have to die. It’s the other half that’s stuck to you. Even if you do an emergency separation surgery you still die because it will take too long to (a) separate you and (b) if you have shared organs you better hang it up! Man that is depressing just thinking about it.

2. PRISON TIME

Let’s say y’all are at the movies. The person on the other side of your connected twin is a biggo jerk who keeps rattling potato chip bags and popping plastic drink bottles and talking loudly on the phone, with the speaker phone, and the phone is lighting up with their picture, and they have on light up glasses in the theatre.

Your Siamese twin stabs and kills him because yall paid hard earned money to listen to the movie and not this fool and his phone and those glasses were just silly. NOW you’ve missed the movie, you got arrested, and you have to go to prison for murder and you didn’t even have nothing to do with it! You’re innocently connected. Aw that sucks!!

What does this have to do with Christine and Millie McCoy?

Nothing. I just thought about those things and figured I’d share my thoughts.

Why have we not heard about these black Siamese twins during black history month?

Because BHM is all about bashing and hashing and rehashing the victim/victimizer stereotype between white people and black people. Naming a month and continuing to pour the same dirty water on the same gas fire does nothing except keep the damaging fire going. Why not go ahead and put a fan next to it and watch it burn faster.

You can’t have black history month without white people. And you can’t have American history without black people. Never mind Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians, or anybody like that.

If black history month actually had some substance I wouldn’t have to have this website to expose what that month refuses to acknowledge!

Now that I got that out of my system

Christine and Millie McCoy

July 11, 1851 – October 8, 1912

On a slave plantation in Welches Creek, North Carolina Jacob and Monimia McKoy had seven children before the Siamese twins showed up. The parents were African and mixed with Native and African. The girls were born fused at the base which caused them to be at a 90-degree angle to each other.

A showman bought them at 10 months old thus starting a lifetime of exhibiting their body. He eventually sold them for $1000. During their career of being bought and sold the highest recording price for selling them was $40,000.

They were in various road shows, Circuses, special engagements and Queen Victoria brought them to Buckingham Palace in 1871 to give them jewelry.

The twins pay was so high because patrons were charged extra, as high as fifty cents or more, just to see them.

They were billed as “the Carolina Twins” , “the celebrated African United Twins.” , “Two-Headed Girl”,  “Two-Headed Nightingale,”

The twins learned five different languages. They played the guitar, the piano, sang and published poems and autobiography books.

When slavery ended in 1863 their pay increased to $600 a week.

In 1869 they wrote a final book called History and Medical Description of the Two-Headed Girl which boosted their popularity.

By the early 1900’s the girls weighed 170 pounds. Their popularity decreased and they went to live on a farm their father left them.

In 1912 Millie was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Christine was not. They had to go to a Sanitarium where Christine still was unaffected.

Millie succumbed to tuberculosis and Christine was still alive. They could not be separated while still alive. It was decided that Christine should be given large doses of Morphine to speed up her death which was imminent. After 17 hours and the governors approval to go through with the morphine Christine died.

In Whiteville North Carolina you will find their double grave with an inscription written about them.

So why is black history month ignoring them?

Because it does not fit their profile of victim/victimizer.

What is Jim Crowe?

Jim Crowe were laws drawn in the southern united states forbidding black and whites to do anything together such as: Ride in the same cart on the train, drink from same water fountain, use the same bathroom, eat at the same restaurant, go to the same church, attend the same schools, buy from the same grocery store unless the coloreds went to the back window, live in the same neighborhood, and so on.

The term Jim Crowe refereed to a pre vaudeville act in the 1820’s when a man in black face would come out and dance and sing. The south adopted that image and name to apply to the laws.

Why could women not vote until August 18th 1920?

Men felt that women were not smart enough to vote. Men felt is was the woman’s place to stay at home cooking and cleaning and not voting. Men felt women were out of line and over stepping bounds by asking to do something equal to a man. Men felt they would lost power if women voted.

Did this include Black men?

Yes. Black men were granted the right to vote on March 3, 1870 and their votes counted. Women still were not given the right to vote. Black men went to vote and were harassed, beaten, killed, spit at and other horrible things. Due to the challenges black men faced they had no time to worry about the black woman. The black men had to come together and exercise their right by law to vote in peace.

 

Who got this women’s voting party started?

Most are familiar with Susan B Anthony. However, there was a women before her that actually put her boot down in men’s faces in the 1777’s. That woman was Abigail Smith Adams. President John Quincy Adams wife. She brought the issue directly to her husband and was basically told to shut up. Abby responded with “women will not hold ourselves bound by any laws which we have no voice.” She was still told to shut up. But she tried.

 

List of some of the Black women suffragettes in history. There were more.

Frances Ellen Watkins Harper. 1825-1911.

Frances was born a free black woman in Baltimore. 1858, before Rosa Parks, she refused to give up her seat in a trolley to a white person and there was a problem. In 1859 she became the first black women to publish a short story in a publication. In addition to writing poetry she was a slave abolitionist and fought for women and the colored women’s right to vote. She participated in this cause after visiting the south and seeing the appalling conditions that black women were living in.

 

Anna Julia Cooper. 1858 – 1964.

Her mother was a slave and her father the slave master. She was born North Carolina. She was freed at the age of 6. She became educated at the age of 9 at a school for newly freed slaves. She became involved in the women’s suffrage movement. She had this to say, “Only the BLACK WOMAN can say when and where I enter in the quiet undisputed dignity of my womanhood, without violence or special patronage; then and there the whole Negro race enters with me.”

 

Ida B Wells 1862-1931

Born a slave in Mississippi. Parents were Republicans. Bought a first class train ticket ony to be told to go to the colored cart with no refund. She took the train to court and won her case. She began working on the National Equal Rights League which resulted in the protest at Wilson’s Presidential innuageration. She was told by Alice Paul to march in the back of the 1913 inauguration crash and have the coloreds stay in the back. Ida did not follow instructions and marched along side Alice Paul. .” Ida attended the 1913 mob on President Wilson’s innaugeration. She took with her some members of her Alpha Suffrage Club of Chicago which she founded.

 

Sojourner Truth. 1797 – 1883

Famous Quotes

“I feel that I have the right to have just as much as a man. There is a great stir about colored men getting their rights, but not a word about the colored women; and if colored men get their rights, and colored women not theirs, the colored men will be masters over the women, and it will be just as bad as it was before”

Ain’t I A Woman?

“That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain’t I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain’t I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man – when I could get it – and bear the lash as well! And ain’t I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother’s grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain’t I a woman?”

 

Nannie Helen Burroughs 1879 – 1961

Born in Virginia to former slaves and moved to Louisville Kentucky where she became a secretary. Was a part of the women’s industrial club. In the early 1900’s she fought for women’s right to vote. At some point after 1947 she moved to Washington DC where she worked for Herbert Hoover.

 

Elizabeth Piper Ensley 1848 – 1919

Born in the carribean and moved to boston in the 1870’s. 1890’s moved to Colorado. Fought to put the women’s suffrage on the Denver Colorado ballot.

Timeline of most of the women’s suffrage events

1777 Abigail Adams. Wife and mother of presidents John Quincy Adams and John Adams Jr.

1792 Mary Wollstonecraft was having none of it. She published a book called Vindication of the Rights of Women in England. Women loved her book. Men still refused women the right to vote.

1836 The Grimke Sisters were against slavery and for women’s rights. They were outspoken, challenging, and were treated badly with profanity and eventually thrown in jail.

1840 London. Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady tried to level the playing field with women and had some success. Women were still denied the vote but these ladies got the ball rolling.

1844 The state constitution stated the following: “One. Every white male citizen of the United States, of age twenty-one years, who shall have been a resident of this state one year would be entitled to vote.”

1848 Elizabeth Cody Stanton went to the Seneca Falls convention and caused a scene with Lucretia Mott. They got their point across, however, women still could not vote.

1861 Susan B Anthony and the Civil War. Susan was the most vocal and came with serious ammunition to solidify all the women that came before her. Until her death in 1906 she made it known that women will have the right to vote. She also made this statement in reference to the black man having the right to vote but not women. “I will cut off this right arm of mine before I will ever work or demand the ballot for the Negro and not the woman.”

1867 Slavery is over and now black women have entered the equation for rights to vote as women. Thus beginning a 52 year debate on all women regardless of color voting along with men.

1870 Black men were given the right to vote. Black women were not given the right to vote. Not because they were black. No women were allowed to vote.

Black men were harassed while voting. As a result black men had to fight for other black men’s enforcement of voting which left black women without their voice. In turn, black women and white women had no choice but to come together as women and take on the guys.

1870 All women showed up to the polls and cast their vote only to have it thrown away and not counted.

1872 Susan B Anthony, Grimke Sisters, and a host of women were thrown in jail for voting. They continued their cause.

1878 Women introduce their suffrage movement to congress.

1884 through 1900 women protest, debate, march, hold signs, and yell at men for the right to vote.

1913 Alice Paul organized a women’s march and messed up the New President Wilson’s inauguration with a flash mob march demanding the right to vote. Eye witness Mary Walton described the scene in 1913 “The violence erupted minutes after the parade began. The crowd broke through steel cables and spilled into the street. Men, many of them drunk, spit at the marchers and grabbed their clothing, hurled insults and lighted cigarettes, snatched banners and tried to climb floats. Police did little to keep order. Observed one of Paul’s supporters, ‘I did not know men could be such fiends.’ ”

Black women were told to march in the back of the procession due to a recent attack on a black man that struck fear in that community. Black women ignored that and walked side by side with white suffragettes. Nothing was said.

1913 through 1919 women continue to invade congress with the right to vote.

August 18th 1920 the 19th Amendment is passed. All women now have the right to vote.

What Abigail started in 1777 came to be in 1920 with the help of hundreds and hundreds of women along the way. After 143 years of fighting the issue women finally had the right to vote.

I got 10% of my anger out at the black church

Having grown up in the black church and witnessing the shenanigans that go on in and in front of the pulpit and being told, “That’s just the way it is” and being forced to be complacent about the corruption pushed and shoved on to unsuspecting parishioners is something I just could not get with.

Part of my spiritual cleansing for 10 years was not to attend church at all and I was much much happier without that type of drama.

The part that really got me, was me, telling the church I had been abused and they said “just pray about it”. Authorities should have been called. But instead I was told to “Trust Jesus and he’ll stop the pain and punish the abuser.”

That, and that alone fueled a life long anger and distrust in the church. Not to mention distrust of the word of the Bible.

The pain didn’t stop and neither did the abuser. Others were abused from the same abuser and others were told the same thing. “Just pray about it.”

Any church that hides behind the Bible in the name of Jesus who purposely does not protect the children is not a church at all. Its hell.

Children have underdeveloped brains and can only go by what adults tell them to believe. I was led down an incorrect path by the ever loving church.

That was my basis behind my posts on the corruption of the black church.

Conclusion of The Black Church and Religious Manipulation

I was just told the most bizarre, craziest, wildest theory of them all by a black church fanatic on Facebook.

Here it goes:

“If you don’t understand that you need religion to get to God then you don’t believe in God.”

Huh? What? Is this person serious right now? Please tell me I’m on Facebook candid camera! That is worth the laugh right there!

I’m glad she said this because this error in delusional thinking is exactly what is wrong with the black church in one sentence.

#1. Religion NEEDS God. However, God does not NEED religion.
#2. GOD created the world. MAN created religion.
#3. You Cannot have God without Satan. You Cannot have Satan without God. Either both exist or both do not. One cannot stand alone. Otherwise, there is no need for the other.
#4. God and religion have absolutely nothing to do with one or the other.
#5. Man has attached God to religion as a means of controlling other men.
And guess what. ITS WORKING!!!

Should I even mention the fact that when God created the world there was no religion?

Who did God worship?

Who did Adam and Eve worship? They didn’t go to church and they didn’t tithe.

The first mention of a synagogue is in Psalms.

The first mention of a temple is in Corinthians.

All through the Old Testament everybody spoke directly to God. And God spoke directly to the people. They were used to it. They gave gifts and sacrifices to God.

The New Testament introduces Jesus as the way to God.

So let me get this straight!

All those people who didn’t know or hadn’t heard of Jesus, and didn’t go to church until Pslams, didn’t know God because there was no religion?

All those people around the world who were born before the New Testament and had never heard of Jesus went to hell because they didn’t attend church and didn’t go through Jesus to get to God?

Even though they were speaking to God every hour on the hour directly? They still could not get to heaven because they didn’t know Jesus.

The Old Testament proves that you don’t need a religion or a building called church in order to get to God. He spoke to them directly!

People don’t read the Bible and therefore don’t know this.

For the love of God will black people please read the Bible!

Religion is:
A code of moral values usually based around the culture.
A set of beliefs usually based on the culture.
Acting a certain way to gain acceptance from the group that is usually based on the culture.
A set of rituals such as recited words, foods, customs, and stories to enforce moral values.
A set of actions in some sort of sequence that is to be done in a frequency such as kneeling in a certain direction daily, eating a certain food weekly, or doing a certain gesture at a time of day or upon hearing certain words, and attaching an image of some sort to enforce the idea of the value.

Religion always involves a belief that an exact routine must be followed in a certain way in order to obtain a particular result. It does not have to be associated with church or a God.

I know that it is very hard for some people to separate religion from God. Yes. It can be done and should be.

Examples:

“I know he wasn’t late to work. He religiously gets up at 6 am to go to work. He’s always on time.”

The reward for his routine of action:

If he doesn’t go to work he won’t get paid. Therefore he must honor that routine in order to keep the end result. If he stops going to work the reward goes away. Therefore, he can’t miss work.

“I know Heather wasn’t the one that forgot to clean the oven. She cleans that oven religiously every other day.”

Heather’s reward for her daily actions?

Heather wants a clean oven. In order for the oven to be clean she must do this on a regular basis without fail.

Religion and God are two separate things.

God did not create religion. That is where folks get twisted up.

God

Creator of the world. Punisher of wrong doers. Rewarding the good doers. God balances out right from wrongs. God is the natural balance system of our whole existence.

God=Life

Life = a balance of good and bad for every living thing on earth regardless of religion.

Here is where the trouble starts with perceptions of God.

1. God only loves those who love him.
This is so wrong on so many levels. This is a man-made interpretation with absolute manipulation.

2. God helps those who help themselves.
This is also misguided for so many reasons. Anybody in the world, no matter their religion or lack thereof, who does anything for or against themselves will get back whatever energy they put into it.

The phrase implies if you don’t believe in God then he won’t help you. I’ve seen plenty of successful atheist who didn’t believe in God and they are doing much better than the judgmental Christian.

Example:
Michael studies hard to be an engineer. Michael is a successful engineer. Michael makes good money being an engineer.

Is this God helping Michael who helped himself or did Michael apply the energy and time he needed to in order to be successful?

Lisa is a thief and a liar. Lisa stole a car. Lisa goes to jail.

Is this an example of God not helping Lisa because she didn’t help herself? She helped herself to a car? She met her goal of obtaining a car. It wasn’t hers. This is clearly an example of Lisa getting what she deserved because of the kind of energy she put into it.

Michael and Lisa are both Christians.

3. If you don’t go to church every Sunday God won’t bless you.
Wrong. You reap what you sow. Going to church or not going to church will not stop you from getting back in life what you put into it.

Reaping what you sow
This idea is not exclusive to any church, religion, group, or book. The idea of everybody ‘getting what they deserve’ or ‘Karma‘ is just how life works.

If you do good it comes back to you. If you do bad it comes back to you.

A rational logical thinking individual who can decipher right from wrong understands and is able to implement that statement. Someone who is not rational and has no regard for right from wrong understands the statement, however, they just don’t care.

Until the black church actually does the following we will continue to have these confusions and delusions based on half truths:

1. Make black people read the Bible.

I’m not talking about Bible study because in Bible study you only study what the pastor tells you to study for that week.

Bible Study is controlled studying.

2. Teach how life really works
There’s so much focus on Jesus, heaven, God and fear that the whole and true meaning of life is totally left out. Focusing on the end result while ignoring the present is never a good idea. People need help now.

3. Address mental problems that church members are facing now
Stop telling folks to ‘pray about it’ and ‘trust Jesus’. Get them the help they need. We have pastors committing suicide after service. We have deacons that are depressed. We have children in the church that are acting out due to abuse. We have church members who can’t pull it together by themselves and have no idea that they have a mental problem or some other problem.

4. Stop glamourizing the pastor and worshipping him and the first lady
They are no closer to God than anybody else on this earth. The difference between most pastors and parishioners is that the Pastor actually read the Bible and knows you haven’t! He knows the key words to manipulate you in the pew.

5. Stop copying and pasting Bible verses on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, and all social media.
Copying and pasting Bible verses does not make you more of a Christian. Nor does it prove anything to anybody other than you know how to copy and paste. Atheists, Buddists, non believers, and first graders can copy and paste Bible verses. You are doing nothing special.

6. Stop with the fear. Stop being controlled by fear and intimidation from the pulpit!
“Thank you God for the wake up call!”  and “God woke me up this morning” and asking everybody “Are you saved” is nothing more than manipulative tools based on in order to get a reaction out of someone else. When the reaction is not falling in line and your beliefs are challenged it becomes a problem for you. Not them.

7. Stop being a “Cookie Cutter Christian”

What is a Cookie Cutter Christian?

A CCC is a Christian that’s been beaten and whipped into a cream pulp of batter. Then placed in line with everybody else with the same belief. And molded so that they look and sound exactly the same as the next person in the religion.

No flexibility. No listening to anyone else. They have been conditioned to believe and stay a certain way. Breaking the mold can result in lots of damage from the molder which is the pastor of the church. Molded and stuck in fear.

A CCC is a borderline fanatic or potential cult member. A CCC cannot surround themselves with anyone who does not believe or think as they do for the fear that Satan is trying to use that person to break them out of the mold.

CCC’s do the following:

Run on fear.
Go to church out of fear.
Have to be seen as the perfect Christian so that no judgement can be passed on to them.
Memorize Bible verses to be called up at any time during a conversation whether its relevant or not.
Have to put Jesus into everything even if its buying toilet paper at Kroger.
Always out to save souls.
Get mad during a Bible debate which they usually initiated.
Bent on making you agree with them and their values to they can be seen as the Christian hero in your life.
Vocalize and demonize anyone who is not fitting the Christian mold they are in.
Believe that Jesus was actually born December 25th of we don’t know the year. Just December 25th.
Deny the pagan holiday connection. Especially December 25th.
Deny the pagan connection between Ishtar and Easter.
Deny that the Torah was written before the Bible and that’s what Jesus studied because The Bible was written after Jesus died because he could not have read the Bible because he was still alive
Deny and refuse to believe that the Quran says the same exact thing as the Bible. Especially Sharia Law.
Deny that Leviticus is a re-written version of the Hammurabi codes from King Hammurabi who lived before the Bible was written.
Deny that the first 5 books of the Bible is basically the whole Jewish Torah which was written before the Bible.
Deny that the word Sabbath actually means Saturday.
Deny, deny and deny.

Why to Cookie Cutter Christians continue to deny?

Because they won’t educate themselves. Uneducated people are easy to control. People who know education is there and still refuse to learn are even easier to control because they are choosing to be stupid and allow someone to take advantage of their chosen stupidity.

Phrases that Cookie Cutter Christians use:

“Either you believe or you don’t.”
“Where did you get your information from?”
“If it’s not in the Bible I cannot read or believe it.”
“If you are questioning anything in the Bible it’s because you don’t believe.”
“You don’t believe in God then!”
“To question the Bible is to question God!”
“That’s not what the Bible says!” CCC’s don’t read the Bible so how do they know
“The Lord spoke to me.”
“Pray about it.”
“You didn’t pray hard enough.”
“You must not read your Bible then!” Like they actually read it. Please!
“I love the Lord!”
“My God is good!”
“I have to put Jesus in it!”
“Constantine didn’t do anything!”

If you run into any of the Cookie Cutter Christians do not associate. It’s a battle you’ll never win. Imagine talking to a brick wall. The brick wall represents the CCC’s.

Behind The Curtain 2 – The Media and Mental Illness In The Black Community

Unaddressed mental illness in the black community

Section F

The MEDIA

The Media does a poor job of bringing mental health issues in the black community to light. The Media gains ratings and capitalizes on demonizing black people and crime.

The Media presents black people as making a conscious knowing decision to do wrong and participate in crime for enjoyment, thrill, and some positive fulfillment.

That false presentation could not be further from the truth.

The Media discounts any and all facts and evidence that black people committing these crimes may have an untreated mental illness.

This is an unjust misleading representation of the black community as a whole.

We are not carbon copy cookie cutters of each other.

The Media does not differentiate between a person who commits a crime that happens to be black and a non threatening entrepreneur with no jail record who also happens to be black. Black does not = criminal, yet, that is exactly what the media suggests and reinforces day after day.

This whole portrayal is delusional and could not be further from the truth if they tried.

Furthermore there is a misconception of Black on Black crime. Most crimes are committed by someone you know. Black people are around black people more than anyone else. If you go to Mexico you will find Mexican on Mexican crime. If you go to London you will find White people stabbing white people. If you go to China you will find Chinese on Chinese crime. If you go to White America you will find white people killing white people.

The whole notion that black people are the only ones who kill each other is also an illusion. White on white crime is just as high if you look at the stats.

But if the Media is bent on demonizing one group to highlight another then stats can and are twisted to keep the delusion going.

Chicago

Chicago is not the leading city for black people and crime. St. Louis is. But St. Louis is ignored because Chicago is more glamourous and will generate higher ratings.

From what I’ve seen in the black community most of the crime is caused by:

1. Failed parenting
2. Unchecked mental illness
3. Frustration
4. No snitch rule

No Snitch Rule

Its funny how the main ones who adhere to the no snitch rule go straight to the police and snitch as soon as one of their children are killed.

Better yet, they go on TV after their child is killed and ask the non-snitchers to snitch!

Point in case: A young man was killed in Atlanta. His family was firm on the no snitch rule while he was alive. As soon as he was found dead they were begging for people to tell the police information to find the killer of their son.

You die by the sword by which you live and what you fear most will kill you.

Failed parenting

1. Father not in the picture – most likely he may be in jail. And most likely he suffers from some unchecked mental problem.
2. Overcompensating for the father not in the picture – the child does whatever he/she wants without learning consequences for their actions. When the child finally has to answer for their behavior the child is confused. The confused child gets no help from the parent because the parent is enabling the confused child. Therefore, the child does not learn
3. Unchecked mental illness on the child – The child could be showing early signs of dyslexia, aspergers, sociopathy, anti-social personality disorders, mental illness, mind disease and so on. Instead of getting the child the help he/she needs the parent follows the tradition of just beating the child. Beating a child that may have mental illness is not teaching the child anything. It is confusing and does more harm than good
4. Selfish parents– spending money on hair and nails is more important than the child’s education or getting mental help. Poor choices from the parents cause the child to look at joining gangs or the child makes poor choices by going to the wrong crowd
5. Absent parents – Dad already isn’t there and now mommy has to work 3 jobs to take care of the kids. Mommy thinks that giving the child ‘stuff’ and ‘things’ will keep them busy and they won’t notice she’s not there. She may have the best of intentions but what children want is a parent. Not stuff. ‘stuff’ can never take the place of parents
When the news shows young black males who have been caught doing something wrong everybody is quick to judge. But are they judging correctly. Some of these young black men have mental illness and sadly they don’t find out until they are behind bars for a long time.

 

Misconceptions about therapy in the black community

The Media can’t be blamed by itself is the black community is helping to present the false image.

There is a preconception that if you go to a counselor that you are crazy. Therefore, you are shunned, shamed and talked about negatively.

Below are the reasons why black people will not go to therapy even if its free:

Nobody wants to admit there is a problem

The excuse, “everybody is different” is used quite a bit in the black community to justify somebody acting a straight fool because they need mental help

The warning signs are either not known, known and ignored, or excused away by saying the person either has demons, hates Jesus, or Satan has a hold of them and he must be rebuked

Parents do not want to admit there is a problem with their parent, child, or themselves. Because then they have to deal with it.

If a school or any institution brings up the fact that a child has a mental problem the parent either skips town, or files against the school because she is offended that this was said about her child

Selfishness. Getting hair and nails done, or playing basketball, is more important than spending money and time on the child or person’s mental health.

Shame and humiliation. If anybody finds out there is a problem with a family member they run the risk of being talked about and embarrassed in front the community and worse than that, the church. So it’s not talked about to save face for the family.

Cowardice.

The age old phrase, “that’s how God wants him/her to be. If he wanted him/her different he’d a done it”

Extreme ignorance, won’t listen, set in ways, and just not wanting to face reality.

Hide behind religion. “Well we just have to pray on it.”

After a mentally ill person flips out we all hear the following

“I didn’t know”

“He seemed like the perfect gentleman”

“I thought something was wrong but didn’t know what”

“He could get a little wild sometimes but I never would have thought this”

“If I’d know I would have helped”

What needs to be done?

The black community needs to put aside the silliness and start educating people now so that these problems in the community can dissipate.

Domestic Violence

One or both partners have a mental problem that has not been addressed. If mental illness was addressed in high school maybe they will make better choices as they become adults.
