It appears that many are in confidence that the current President 45 still has issues. And of course many are calling him out to still denounce the words of KKK, White Nationalists or Supremacists , Neo-Nazis that actually have this hate of “taking their country back”. Well guess what? For all that movements that want to knock each other out like crazy and having the gaul of the hate, they have played themselves. The same folks whom tell us black folks to “get over it” when the subject of Slavery comes up, or saying that Black Lives Matter is a hate group. OH SINCE WHEN?!! Really? And of course they say we whine about the Police being harassing folks of Color in a fancy car or being watched to be killed by a security watchman, which does happen all the time. And not all get killed due to the fact they assumed about the pound cake missing and ends up either being dead or in jail for a long time all because of the harassment of the badge. Now don’t get me wrong that there are good cops and bad cops. But there is one problem: the bad cops may have deep sense of hate.

In addition to the death of Heather Heyer, who was remembered today, there were two deputies whom were killed in the weekend, where was the “So-Called” Blues Lives Matter crowd at? And why wasn’t 45 acknowledging the families of the Troopers whom lost their lives that day? Have to bring this back: EPIC FAIL! Yep. And also you do realize that Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has been mostly silent about this tragic thing in Charlottesville? Has not said a word. Typical. Earlier today, there were several companies under the then-President’s Manufacturing Council that pulled out due to this recent “Racist Manner” that Ol’ Donnie refused to acknowledge late. Oh, one the companies, Merck was one the companies in the Pharmacy business was pulled out and the head of the company is a black man of Kenneth Fraizer. Let that sink in. Plus other companies like: Under Armour, Out. You can pull out your Under Armour Sneakers and wear them. Other companies: 3M, GE, General Motors, and others – OUT! Again, all because in the wake of the Charlottesville Violence.

What also has been a red herring, I like everyone else, had been paying attention to these stories on how some the Alt-Right Protestors were being hounded by having their pictures shown and being distributed to the websites and social media. Well shiznit folks: let be break this down. If a picture gets photographed via the news media or newspaper or whatever news out there, it’s going to get published! And when it does get published, guess what? Everyone will see it! Even when your co-workers or bosses will know. Why? It’s everywhere! And when they see it, they will be asking questions of why you committed your time to contribute to this hateful thing of being out there with the “Alt-Right” trashing up the town. And don’t expect to get fired because you will.

Speaking of that, I have to go back to the year of 2010, which was 7 years ago. Remember Dresser Waukesha? Hmm…..Let’s revisit that:

Last year, I was a” hater victim of race” when there was a settlement case involving me and 390+ African Americans were denied of a company to get in – Dresser Waukesha. I was one of those who turned in a resume at a job fair in 2006, and never got a call back nor a letter response in the mail. Until August of 2010 came, I got this form in the mail along with a statement that the reason I didn’t get hired nor trained with Dresser Waukesha (see the file Waukesha_Third_Amended_Complaint) is because I happen to be African-American. So I filled out the form and mailed it. When October came, I went to my house and there was a check from the Reed vs Dresser Settlement, and I was awarded over $5000.00. And just recently, I was awarded over $200.00 additionally. And other African-Americans in the case probably got the same amount equally.

See what I’m getting at? Yep. I was disrespected in the Milwaukee area because of my race. And I’m sure that there are others that read this on the Journal Sentinel’s website said something like, “oh they’re crying out racism over a job they didn’t get”. They don’t know (I can’t say the word) about the horror we went through. So they don’t get it. And they never will get it. This is on-going thing here.

Remember when written that? Its from the blog story that many of you read a lot, it’s the 2011 Blog about no surprise about Milwaukee and race. And many of the things I said back then still lingers today.

Now let me go back to a point, where was the issue of me being overqualified was problem in 2013:

I did say that I’ll write a blog about being overqualified. And what I’m about to reveal it right now. One day, I was on the LinkedIn website, and I was looking at jobs for the Greater Milwaukee Area. I chose the company to seek out, Brooksource, an IT Staffing Service. The company is based out of Indiana, but do have locations within the country. However, I put in a resume for a job of Corporate Recruiter and the ending result in the next couple of days: Overqualified.

I’m like: Overqualified?!! Really?!

I remember emailing the recruiter about asking why I was in the terms “overqualified”. The response was weak in terms of my diverse background experience. And also the company itself is very small. But likewise they also wish me well in my endeavors.

That what was said mostly. However, with a person like me being “OVERQUALIFED” is not acceptable. I want every company, every company like person, or any company man/woman ask a question:

Why do you not want those who are OVERqualified?

Why are you are afraid of potential candidates like me who have a diverse background experience? Or what, you’re thinking of me being greedy? What’s Up?!

Companies say all the time that they are looking for good people. WELL……..I am good person of hard work.

I also took a look why the word “overqualified” was a red flag for companies who are stuck up. According to the sources, either they don’t want you, you may want to quit for finding a better job for better pay, you’re too old, etc. Technically, that to me is nothing more being “discriminate”. And Brooksource SHOULD know better! I remember writing a letter to Brooksource’s Manager about the situation and I have yet to hear or see a response from the Manager.

In the pathway of me finding a job, specifically in Milwaukee, it’s either because of experience, because of my skin color (yep, I did mention Dresser Waukesha being discrimative against African-Americans) and now…..Overqualified.

Look, I’m about to turn 36 in December, and I thought I would never fit in with the “Overqualified Crowd”. I do realize that the companies are looking for the younger crowds to take over or to enhance work. I’m not against that. What I am against that companies using the “STUCK UP” crap, of not letting guys like me getting a chance to continue to shine up. No matter what.

Just another barrier just for folks like me to stay out. Sad.

This is not just a slap in the face towards me or others like me. And by the way, if you have been in the same boat as me being overqualified, you need to speak up. I don’t care if you write to the President, or your local officials who you voted to put in office. Now some are saying, “well that’s life. You get picked or you don’t.” I get that. However like the President said, in regarding Americans getting an opportunity: Everyone gets a fair shake!

Obviously, Brooksource DID NOT get the message. And with them being a small company in all, is no excuse! That is unacceptable.

Now why I would tie this in with the White Supremacy stuff that is going on like everyday? Then it hit me. Technically this is PART of White Supremacy! These stories that I pulled from the archives was a prime example of what is wrong in this country. Part of the matter is it’s all in the lining.

There are those probably in the Human Resources areas that don’t really care about applicants of color. No matter what type of experience, education, goal setting or purpose. Michael Jackson had a song back in 1995 that was called “They Don’t Really Care About Us!” I’m sure you have heard of it, right? And even though that the song had anti-Semitic lyrics, most of that was real talk. Which applies to something like we see now. For the jobs or companies which has these HR folks that refuse to hire black folks (again no matter the skill or education) it’s like what my mother said about the Dresser Waukesha thing of “Were not going to hire this black man, were going hire more of the White folks” routine. Heard of that? You should. And that seems that it’s going around and has been going around for a long time. I was reminded of that when listening to WNOV sevea per se about keeping people poor. They don’t want them working in freaking Brookfield or a certain zip code. What these companies might do and it has been done that they’ll look at the zip code you live in, and they’ll get all this data or info about the area and jobs with it. And usually they will look at that one thing you handed to them: your resume. The same resume that you sling out every time you go to the job fairs, or career expos. The same resume you bring when you go to the interviews or many others. Yes, that one. But now job developers and advisors are now telling job seekers to take off the address and zip codes due to this. Even you have to take off the year you got your degree from college due to a thing of AGE DISCRIMINATION! I learned this about two years ago. This White Supremacy thing is heck of a drug I’m telling you. And the thing is, it’s all over the place. Wanna keep things all white and nothing else. And many realize “oh, that’s why we talk about race”. Even though that many don’t want to admit it. The truth is: racism is in America’s DNA. I need you to hear me on this: It’s in the DNA! Or this thing called the bloodline. And many are telling us to “Get over it?”. To quote my Dad, that is out! Even my father once said that racism will still be around. Or this case, a factor of concern.

It’s not just about drugs. It’s not just about alcohol. It’s not about the looks you have on your body, or a certain credit score, or level of education, it’s really about the issue (the ongoing issue) of race. And the example has been escalated since last Saturday and Ol’ Donnie didn’t go hard enough. Many are saying that his family has ties to the KKK or somewhat related. What’s he hiding? CONFESS, DONNIE! You’re busted!

Next blog up: The Monuments are getting out. But the stories still remains.


Oh let me go in on this: White Supremacy is a heck of a drug and it’s a drug that many of you white folks know all to well. Be honest. What began with a group of young white dudes over a statue with Tiki Torches, lead to a violent demonstration of protesting. And the thing is we know it. Everyone talking about the use of terrorism. Foreign and Domestic. This was an act of “Domestic Terrorism” when you saw a driver out of Ohio plowing through a crowd of protestors killing one of them at 32 years old of the name Heather Heyer. Or seeing some of the alt-right in Body Armor with Swat Helmets, Shields with Racial Symbols on it, Flags mixed with the Nazi signs and the American Flag Colors clashing with fights and yanking signs. Oh yes: Make America Great Again, not! Having all this again, is about a freaking statue! A Robert E. Lee Statue! Really?!

This whole thing of the clash was like a throwback episode on Jerry Springer. For you younger readers, he once had Nazis and the KKK on his show many times. Oh and yes they were saying crap like “I got your mom in the trunk of my car!” Oh don’t tell me you remember that! But this was no show. This was an act of criminal in our own backyard. For the clips of what I’m talking about, you might want to do a checking on Youtube and do a search of “Jerry Springer KKK” or something like that to view the clips. And I know that long ago many were getting mad at him on for having the Klan on his show. But then again, what we have saw back then, is no different what we recently saw on Saturday. And oh, it was a long time ago to remind ourselves that they are still out there processing the hate that consumed the DNA of America for YEARS! We know it. Don’t deny it!

And these same folks again: whom were doing the “Tiki Torch thing”, are probably the same folks whom are in the workplaces, served as officers, have high positions of rank, neighborhood organizations, well known members or employees of country clubs, the bar after work for happy hour, and the scary thought: they are also at your kids’ universities or schools TEACHING or ADVISING! – Again, school is back in session. And for you students, that classmate of yours might be related to someone’s uncle, cousin, grandson/daughter and parents.

Did I mention that they root for the same team as you do? Yeah let that also sink in!

And Speaking of the KKK: Former leader David Duke said this remark: “We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump.”

CALLOUT: Take our country back?! Back from whom?!!! For all you White Nationalist and fans of them, this wasn’t your country to begin with. Stop that mess. You are playing yourselves!

Most of every ethnic folks whom are from other countries except the Native Americans, are immigrants. For my black folks, our ancestors were slaves. Forced to learn new languages. Branded. Shackled. Loaded on boats forcefully. Get the picture?

Oh let me go in on the leader of 45Land. I heard his remark about the “all sides” thing. Plus his Twitter message also was WEAK! It was weak and stupid! Many are saying that his remarks should have gone in and told these Alt-right, KKK and Neo-Nazi idiots that they need to chill the mess out! Did he call them out? No! He has not! And the strange thing was most of them probably voted for old man Donnie back in 2016! But the Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe told them to “Go Home.” They are not welcome here. Don’t ever comeback! Now that’s a real statement! And the fact of matter is, #45 was just scared to admit that some of his supporters whom probably voted up for him the most were connected to the White Supremacists Groups and the dude didn’t call them out in this matter. Oh, he wants them to matter to him due to the one thing that matters: THE VOTES! That’s all there is! Nothing but the votes to get him elected AGAIN! The fools who did all that stunt mess on Saturday in Charlottesville must have been the same supporters whom have voted up for #45. Think about it!

Also, I like everyone else noticed that the representatives of The American Legion were in the background. And many should had mentioned about a Veteran in Oregon was recently killed on a Light Rail Route. And the reason was standing up to hate speech. Where was the mention of that in The 45 Land White House? Answer, no where to be found! Totally lacking. And also, what is the American Legion’s stance on what has happened? As well as the entire Legion Family of The Sons of the American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary and the Legion Riders. Matter of fact what is this teaching the Boys and Girls State for the American Legion? Hmmm……Let that SINK IN! And don’t forget the Masons, Elks, and any other Fraternity and Sorority that may have those Frats and Sorors that might have this in them? Come on now, don’t speak at once!

The hate of this thing of White Supremacy, is still at large like a bandit. And when the proverbial thing of the remarks, “There is no real racism in America” is really a smokescreen of overshadowing that it should not be in the discussion. I hate to say that it is in the discussion. Even when you are silent and don’t say anything. Your mouth and mind says one thing, but the eyes says another. Of course when you have that talk at the dinner table, and yes many of us will have the talk/discussion about the use of racism which many know very well, wait until the holidays come and you will hear the mess out of the family members that might spew out the N word or having this hate mentality against anyone that is not them! Tell me I’m wrong! This is an early spoiler alert for the Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. You know its coming. And when it does come, what will we be doing about it?

In the last couple of days, the new 45 old Donnie President as we know, had called out the actions of the Neo Nazis and Supremacist groups. But took too long in responding to the groups of being Neo Nazi and Supremacists/Nationalists. He took WAY TOO LONG! Slow stepping! Why? Like I said, many of them went to him because of the votes! #45 claims that he doesn’t know David Duke, but David Duke knows about HIM! That’s all there is. Plus in the last couple days, there have been parades in the response of the Charlottesville clash, even my hometown of Milwaukee had one in the Riverwest Neighborhood recently. And I’m sure that there will be many more anti-parades in the response of Charlottesville.

And about the toppling of the statues, that was crazy! Reminds me of the toppling the statue of Sadaam Hussein during the Iraqi Freedom War in the early 2000’s. And seeing a young boy, whom probably is about adult age now, slapping his shoes on the statue. But already, a statue in North Carolina has been well “toppled” and there are folks in the area (police) having the houses checked to see who done it. They are not playing!

So with all this, has America regretted voting for Ol’ Donnie? If Hillary had a different mindset of her campaign (which also should have came to Wisconsin) she would be the President in the Office NOW! But we have this Tycoon on a fake leader to worry about for the next three years and he’s off to a rocky start. For all those whom are in the backwoods that voted him up, even to those whom are other ethnics (including black folks) ARE YOU HAPPY NOW? If you’re not happy that stuff like this is going on and with all that mix of White Supremacy you know darn well the country is guilty. Remember that we should know that racism, and all that racial stuff we know is part of America’s DNA. Let that AGAIN sink in!

There will be more commentary forthcoming after this.


Man, some of you NFL fans need to lighten up. Like really. All along we all know that the “blackballing” of Colin has reached it’s breaking point. Matter of fact it’s well passed that. By the time many read this, most of us will be looking at the games while many of you might be having a fit thinking of him getting a job. Who also didn’t vote up in 2016!

What is it about him looking for work when you have the average African-American Men and/or Women who are scrapping up work as in trying to find work EVERYDAY due to the hate of skin color or a dumb thing of credit reports? Explain that to me.

Last night, well this has nothing to do with this, but when the Packers started their Preseason, they didn’t started with Aaron Rodgers. Brett Hundley did. And he’s black.

So in that, there was his numbers or ratings being not up to par, an injury might have been a factor, and he had this theory of not getting resigned by the 49ers.

And oh, here comes the additional theories of not standing for the national anthem and assuming that the Stars and Stripes had or is oppressing black folks or POC’s. And many from the activists and even some of our Veterans stood in support of what he protested. You even had young Volleyball Black Players and Football Players of High School, kneeled. Plus a former pro Soccer player kneeled. And some of the WNBA players, kneeled. We all know. But was it worth it? But the person you copied of kneeling, didn’t even vote. That’s one of the reasons why the 45land leader is in office and it’s like a slap in the face! We know it is. And everything that 45 or ol’ Donnie is doing to reverse the policies and ideal decisions that President Obama did in his 8 years. That is a direct slap as well.

Folks are saying that Colin Kaepernick’s angle is in line with Rosa Parks, or Muhammad Ali. CALLOUT: I don’t think so. Colin Kaepernick will never be a Rosa Parks, or Muhammad Ali! We need to be clear! Never have, never will. What they did was real. Not all about me and disguising a theory about the flag in a wrong matter. But alas: Colin said that all his protest wasn’t about the flag, nor the military. It was really about addressing the injustice about the treatment that African-Americans get every single time. And the same treatment or treatments harbored us so many times and we know it. But many believe all that protesting is about him and not really much about others.

Now last year, I written a blog piece about the National Anthem in which I commented about Colin’s protest. Well here is a review:

Speaking of that: The Star Spangled Banner. The official theme song of America. For many many years, the anthem has been played, sung at events, played in solos and many others. And there were those got criticized of the Anthem being a disgrace to those serve in uniform. But I’ll say that the Anthem is good “on display”. But the author, Francis Scott Key that made the anthem in 1812, was also an owner of slaves! The third stanza in the Anthem, which no one hardly sings by the way, spells out as this:

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore

That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion

A home and a Country should leave us no more?

Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Well ladies and gents, let’s breakdown the meat of the third stanza. Now many are already saying that the stantza is racist. The words in the stanza: “No refuge could save the hireling and slave” some say that is so racist that it needs to be erased. But what did Francis Scott Key meant by this? Since he was a slave owner by the way.

  • The word Refuge means in dictionary terms as we know is related to Refugee, as being forced to cross national boundaries and cannot return home safely.
  • Hireling means: A person who works only for pay, especially in a menial or boring job, with little or no concern for the value of work. In a adjective sense: it also means serving for pay only, vernal, and mercenary. See that?

But when you put it all together in that ONE LINE: The Refugees of the slaves, our ancestors were forced in bondage, couldn’t return to Africa that had to be worked for menial jobs, with no concern for the work values of the jobs that was slave related. Henceforth: “No refuge could save the hireling and slave.”

Now that was last year, but this morning as I was listening to the radio , there was different definition about the use of words. “Hireling” in this sense was a reference to the British Soldiers and the “Slaves” was a reference to the American soldiers. There was a “stipulation” that if the slaves served under the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, they would granted their freedom. Same as the side of the British. If the Black Slaves served under the British Crown, they would be granted their freedom. And also we know that Francis Scott Key was the composer of the Anthem, but according the radio broadcast, he was mad by getting beat by the black troops during the time period. To be clear, it was about another version of Black Power! You might listen to WNOV on the Tune-In App for that.

Now that might sound kind of strange but the thing is this version might be kind of stronger than the first definition we heard last year. Why haven’t we really heard the third stanza of the Anthem before in school?

EASY ANSWER: It was never taught to us! Just like in all the extensive history we are just now exploring about the nation and yes Black History. All that extensive history that we didn’t know about that we just found out on Social Media, IT WAS NEVER TAUGHT TO US! NOT ONE EXTENSIVE SUBJECT!

We can blame all the same old “they didn’t teach us this stuff in school in all” but you know whom I really blame in all of this? Read my lips: Blame the curriculum! The same curriculum that circulates all the lessons plans that many of the teachers will be getting for your kids in the fall.

*Sidenote: Milwaukee Public Schools will start school on August 14th and September 5th, and most schools will have Uniforms.

But seriously folks, NFL Fans: I hate to say this in all, but Colin Kaepernick is not going to save you. I hate to be a hater for the “Colin Worshipers” who was all flashy against the Packers, went to the Super Bowl against the Ravens and LOST in the blackout game in the Superdome. And a season later his numbers weren’t all to par, he was injured at one point prior, and he was 2-1 against the Packers in a game that the 49ers lost 17-3. I told you Niner Gang. All that flashy stuff came and went! He’s a heck of a ball player, and since the plays of the Pistol he started, guess what? Everyone is going to use it and rename it the Lombardi Cannon or whatever. And of course his chances of getting a job dwindled, plus having a fear of getting cut by the team, and what does he do in between: kneel before the flag during the national anthem. And again, he didn’t vote! And many of the fans whom are now just WOKE, we have a guy name of Ol Donnie in the White House. Let that sink in.

Instead of worrying about Colin and his job, again what about those who are still looking like crazy everyday? And other issues of healthcare, the economy, drinking water concerns, not enough support for the church, or many of the concerns that are more IMPORTANT about everyday values! Again, he is NOT here to save you!


Well I thought I wouldn’t do this, but it’s time to do an rant on the spot. And that rant is about the Leftists or some of the Democrats has this “dislike” of three potential ideal picks in the next run to get the seat back. I’m talking about Sen. Kamala Harris, Senator Cory Booker, and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. All three are very potential in having the idea in the eyes of others to run for President for 2020, but the latter of matter is that many in the “Leftist” rank think that they are not potential enough. Mainly still stuck on the Bernie Sanders/Hillary Clinton angle. And for those whom are not known for this, Bernie is an Independent Candidate that ran as a Democrat. But I don’t understand why are the senators of Harris, Booker and Patrick are getting this “dislike” and somewhat hate from the same party group that they are supporting. For Senator Harris, look: I really like her. She’s got a poise on her. And according to the stories, the angles of her being supportive of Black Lives Matter, and an experience with being a prosecutor in California. So what’s the matter with those I ask? Like really? The hate on Cory Booker, relates to the ties to Wall Street, and this “not so nice” relation to Big Pharma. And as former governor Deval Patrick is concerned: he works for Bain Capital as a managing director. And yes, even Cory Booker at one time defended Bain Capital while realizing that notion when both parties were facing the same examples of financial concerns on Wall Street.

But I have to ask, why are we the African-American base of the Democratic Party have to go through this “permission list” of whom to pick of the whole contenders? Can we make our own picks?

The whole thing in this predicament, is almost like, “oh we shouldn’t pick them because of the angles of being a prosecutor or with Black Lives Matter is flat out ridiculous. Really it is. It’s shameful that the progressives wouldn’t dive in on it. Why not progressives?!!! Let’s be real! These picked out of the black side of the DNC are interesting and should be on the pulse of the 2020 Election. And should be. But oh……no.

If I have to be a betting man I would pick a Kamala Harris/Cory Booker ticket for 2020. Just my opinion. No Progressive or Leftist opinions necessary!


Oh yes. I have to talk this. Really I have too.

I’m sure that many in America already knows about the deal that was signed when Foxconn, a Taiwan company that landed a deal that would boost Wisconsin’s job numbers concerning employment. We all know that when Scott Walker boasted a plan to have the 250,000 jobs to happen, actually DID NOT WORK. I told you so, Wisconsin. The same words, I told you so rang out so many times I can’t event count. And this was about 6 years ago. Now with the jobs for Foxconn according the sources that it would attract about 13,000 jobs. And it’s going to come to the area of Racine or Kenosha Counties. And just like Amazon, they will NOT come to the Milwaukee Metro Area. And the fact is that yes, when Foxconn inked the deal there had some concerns about also about the taxation part. This deal per se might cost us taxpayers to be on the hook for the next 15 years. How is this deal is going to be beneficial for taxpayers like me for the next couple of years?! Like really, Madison. Plus, Foxconn has been in bad blood in the last couple of years. To the residents of Pennsylvania, we have read about your dilemma about the plant that hasn’t been built. And many of us in Wisconsin are fully aware about it the promises that you were to be given, but didn’t work. And the result was bad broken politics. We get it.

I’ll bet many probably thought, really Wisconsin?! Have you been screwed up already? Oh and other thing, many think that this would seal up Scott Walker’s deal as a way to get reelected for 2018.

Now since the Foxconn company is coming to the state, what will become of us whom don’t have transportation to get to the jobs? We know that Amazon can’t do it alone, but many of us don’t have a jeep, a truck, a car, or a Go-Kart to get to Foxconn every day? Think about it. And what will the state black residents have a say in this?

Oh wait! We had an idea that was seemed very VERY interesting. It was a High Speed Rail Train that would have linked Milwaukee and Madison. You do remember that we HAD over 800 million dollars stacked up for the Talgo Trains and the jobs? Is all that memory coming back? And what did our glorious Governor Numb Nuts did with that money and the jobs and the trains? He gave it all away! The state got sued due to a breach of contact and it was THE biggest blunder ever! Wisconsin, you should have kept the trains. But you failed to follow the advice of Scott Walker. And those like Robin Vos and Alberta Darling. And did I mention that part of which of that dumb decision was geared towards racism? Let that sink in! After 6 years. That was also to help integrate the region. And many were worried that black folks would go to Jefferson County for coffee and donuts. Really?! And to do the math, Wisconsin’s black population is around 8%.

Oh, now that there is talk about using a Canadian Railway track to combine the Twin Cities, Milwaukee and Chicago for a Intercity Rail Route with Amtrak. That seems like an idea, but how is THIS is going to get paid? And the thing is, you got this Foxconn plant coming up, and they need some kind of transportation for Freight and also what about those who don’t drive, that live in far places, how are they are going to get to work? You see what I’m saying? Yeah let that REALLY sink in! And now Walker wants a train! So hypocritical.

Our Republican state hood “friends” really messed up. They realized it. Talgo at the time could have benefited ALOT of jobs. I visited the Talgo plant 5 years ago in the black community in the 2700 block at Townsend Street area, and wanted to see the HSR trains up close. They were good. With all the digital stuff and everything. Plus they worked hard on them! Our people. And the State shamefully gave it all up. All because they thought the tax payers would be on the hook for the vehicles. Or the personal favorite: boondoggles! “No one will ever ride it.” Um………you really think that Badger State? Better change your tune and repent. I hear mostly about the value of the trains on Black Radio like WNOV than 620 WTMJ or 1130 WISN. And let remind our Republican fans, not many in the state doesn’t have their own transportation! And Foxconn wants in. We’re unprepared. Matter of fact were unprepared in getting some of the highways and roads done. Which was LOOOONG talked about for years! Let that also sink in! Why you asked? Too many dang politics messing up. And dang is not a bad word.

At least the Milwaukee Streetcar is still on point.

All of this in my view needs the reexamination of what we really want to have in the state. And of course there will be questions. Like already as I speak, Foxconn is already being talked about but it should be talked about more in the areas of Milwaukee’s north side that can get more insight about what is going on. Especially when the state’s transportation system is on one leg losing to political standpoints so many times over!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Ok: this is what I want to write. I’m going to go hardcore with the topics at hand and I will not hold back.

The first of the two takes is the most recent mess that I have ever heard and see. Take a look:

This is the part where I’m going into pop off mode. First of all. If I were one of these dudes fathers, there will be BUTTS SPANKED! Who on Earth do these dudes think they are allowing this man, this disabled man drown like that and not helping the guy? What is up with that?! Like seriously. For all you hyper political folks about this being a Democratic or Independent or Republican base thing, TAKE YOUR POLICTICAL CRAP OUT OF THIS! This is NOT the time for it! At all! If these boys were my sons, I would be embarrassed and mad as HELL because to allowing this man to die and not helping out. The TV’s, Game systems, Social Media and other things they like, will be GONE and nothing but clothes and shoes will be in the rooms. Oh, that door they locked up, OFF!

Also as far as the parents of these young men, they need to be locked up. Like seriously, locked up. Why would any child allow this disabled man to die? FOR TEN MINUTES?! And I KNOW that the morals of these parents should be shameful to the point. Oh don’t blame the white man on this one.

CALLOUT: Black Community, THIS IS OUR FAULT! Where’s all the melanin popping stuff now?

We need “melanin responsibility” to act right in our communities! They say all the time, what is wrong with our young black men acting like this? Well who’s raising them?! Who is raising these boys that allow them to smoke weed and not helping out the person? And now these boys are facing charges just because they didn’t report this to the authorities and yes, there might be signs of protecting them and marching. Look, forget the marching on this. They better sleep with one eye open.

I’m calling this right now. All that fun time is coming to an end. And I’ll bet many have watched this footage and will go hard on these boys for the next phases.

Speaking of next phases: Boy Scouts, you have been scared. Literally.

I know many of you have held the values of your traditions in terms of the words: trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

Think about those words again. You honestly think that #45 evokes those qualities? Oh please! Yes, you didn’t invite him to the Jamboree to talk politics. You should have invited him to talk to the kids and to instill positive values into them. But NO. He had to go talk about his idea of stripping away Obamacare, Building that stupid wall, and oh, “Making America Great Again.” All that mess. And many of fans booed that Obama didn’t show up in person to the Jamboree during his time, but he sent his substitutes to talk to the young men. Oh: for you Obama haters in 45 land, the 44th President was at a time a member of the Indonesian Scout Association which is equivalent of being a Cub Scout. Let that sink in. Don’t go start all that googling mess to prove my point.

I think after this so- called speech to defer the country, the Boy Scouts should not invite 45 back. EVER! He is proving already that he cannot shoot out POSITIVE vibes about anyone! Let’s be honest, here! He ain’t right. For all you Trump (oops 45 land Supporters) that still like him in all, I dare anyone to step him like a man or woman and tell him he needs to stop tweeting and show up.


Did this once, will do it again.

Ready. Set. Go!

Oh, I got a question to ask: for all you Eric Thames Haters, you thought that he was on that stuff. Those steroids. He was tested negative. And many of you are now starting to like him. Really?!

More “meme counter thoughts” to come.

 

 

 

 

 


Oh, let me go in on this mess. There were fireworks on TVOne this past week via News One Now. Take a look:

 

Ok. This is for all the “Dr. Umar Johnson Conscious Maniacs” out there: stop the pain. I repeat, STOP THE PAIN!

For the last couple of days, you all have been so out of character about the “beatdown” that Dr. Umar Johnson got on News One Now this past week. I’ve seen your comments on Roland Martin’s page on Facebook, and the utter disgust that many of you called him a COON all because in your viewpoints, that Dr. Johnson got the hard questions hit at him on Roland’s Show. Oh that’s right, Dr. Umar Johnson is in a public spotlight. Of course he’ll called out on his lineage to Frederick Douglass and his family. Of course of course he got called out on the comments about black men marry white women and the distain about when the black men are out doing other things for other people, they forget that the women they know need help too: The black woman. Of course many have called him out on the subjects at hand. Even about Tim Wise and others. And his degrees! Really folks?

But this past week and even today, many of you still are calling out Roland to make that apology to Dr. Umar Johnson. Are you done now? Can Roland do his job and get on with his journalism and his frat life in the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity? Can he get on with his TVONE News One Now Life, his family life? Can he do that please? Maybe I think Roland and this is just my opinion only, personally does not need to apologize. Period. Or maybe in a sense he does need to apologize to the fans of him and Umar. But here’s the thing that many of you Umar fans need to know: WE GET CALLED OUT EVERYDAY! How many of you reading this blog that are fans of Dr. Umar Johnson and get called out everyday at your jobs, your households, your families, your friends, your pookies and nee-nees at the the family reunion? Let that sink in, as our younger folks would say.

Hey, I get called out. Where was the help on that? Hello?!!!!

CALLOUT: Let’s be honest, this will pass in two to three weeks. And after that, what’s next?

There are a lot more stuff happening in the black community than worrying about Dr. Umar Johnson being roasted on News One Now. Like really. When are we going to call out black unemployment? Our black health? Our black employment? Our black entertainment? Our black melanin popping stuff? Our various causes in our communities? Our education and finance? Our so-called true level of consciousness that many of us don’t have, or abuse and use? Even our black churches that don’t do enough than those that do enough? Our clubs, organizations, and even US? I would rather worry about those, and call out those causes than this silly crap between a black man who is a Pan Africanist and a Black Journalist asking those “TOUGH TOUGH” questions. Has Roland been called out before? I assume he has. But knowing him, he defends his record. All the time. We see it on social media everytime. I’ll bet many are like, “man Stephen you like Roland Martin so much, do you? All up in his fanbase and junk”. Well, maybe. I may not agree with Roland all the time, but he does have pointers to think about.  And that doesn’t need calling out.

But yo, we got bigger fish to fry for sure. Why don’t we Hotep that?

 


Oh the irony. There is a group out now that wants to recall Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. There is an organization called “Save Our City: Milwaukeeans Can’t Wait” that has filed a petition to get about 50,000+ signatures in order to have an recall election to run against the 4 time mayor of the Milwaukee.  As many DO RECALL: Mayor Barrett won his election bid to continue against then opponent Alderman Bob Donovan for another 4 years. Yes, Milwaukee he won.

What was some of the reasons for this so-called request?

  1. Streetcar Project
  2. Lead Pipes
  3. Not enough to fight Crime

 

After reading about this petition idea, I have only ONE Question to ask: Why didn’t this came out last year in 2016 when the Mayor was re-elected? I mean they had the chance to out him on the ballots, BUT Tom still won. 

For this bogus recall group, they are just mad. They are mad at what many think that Tom here is this nice guy mayor that many feel that he’s projecting the work downtown than in the other sectors of the city. For the record there are some projects in the City that are under construction, developing and others that are happening right now. It’s not just downtown! I’ve seen them with my own Nikon.

Plus according to Urban Milwaukee, Mayor Barrett had noticed this idea for several weeks. And of course if or when these signatures and others made themselves known, expect the DEFENSE of Mayor Barrett will come out and defend his record in the last previous term. Expect that Milwaukee!

Also, I heard that one of the Milwaukee Black Panthers Darryl Farmer is acting as the treasurer for the Organization. Not familiar with Darryl Farmer? He is also known as King Rick by the way. And I’ll bet some of the Panthers might question why he is in this instead of the black fist rising. I’m just saying!

And by the way, ASK ME THIS: why hasn’t no company or organization has NOT gone into the Century City Park I Building that A.O. Smith used to be? And it’s still vacant?

We know that Mayor Barrett isn’t perfect. We know this. But in all of this request to get 50,000 signatures in 60 days in my opinion, will not happen. I’m sorry, Allen L. Jansen! Many don’t realize that the petitions will again cost taxpayers extra money to get this done. And who is going to challenge Mayor Barrett? Who?!  Keep in mind that the election was LAST YEAR!

For all of those whom are the “Save our City: Milwaukeeans can’t wait” flagship whatever group, if you challenge this per se, with this idea of a recall, and Barrett defends his record in a truthful manner, guess what?  you will make him a 5 time mayor. I’m calling it right now! And no I will NOT sign your petition.

Let me just say this on the real though: How is the Milwaukee Streetcar a potential problem of Police and Schools when the federal tax dollars (you heard that right) were used, plus also the ongoing construction is putting in jobs?

Second about the Lead Pipes: we all know that the lead in the water is a problem. There is no denying that. Matter of fact it’s been a problem BEFORE Tom Barrett was in office. Why wasn’t the issue discussed when Norquist was in office? Remember cryptosporidium? Explain that, Save our City folks.

As far as the crime statistics, we know it’s a major problem.

As a native and still living in the Brew City, yes Milwaukee is not perfect. It wasn’t perfect when John Norquist was mayor, and neither now. So what’s the haps?

It’s going to take all of the near 600,000 plus Milwaukeeans that live in the City Limits to get this city going. Not all the former residents who still got love for Milwaukee whom work and go back to the boonies. Nope, you don’t count. In all of this, it’s all about some dude who thinks that when someone is in office, there is always whom feel that someone that is not doing all things, or not focusing on all of the Milwaukee sector except DOWNTOWN! Oh, we talk about the Milwaukee Bucks. We know that the Arena is coming up, but did you know that the Milwaukee Bucks will turn one of the former battered playgrounds into a multi-field for track, soccer, basketball, tennis and other sports?

This is what I’m talking about for those whom are late to the bar:

The title says: “Milwaukee Bucks, Johnson Controls to build $150,000 ‘multi-sport complex’ in the city’s Westlawn neighborhood”

This was reported in Milwaukee Journal Sentinel 2 months ago! HELLO! Anyone of the Save our City folks read this? Where have you been?! Ok, I get it. Everybody got different schedules. BUT STAY ON SCHEDULE!

And I’ll bet whom probably already forgotten after reading this will be like, oh yes that right, but what else is being built? First of all, I see construction stuff alot. No matter if it’s in Wauwatosa, Downtown, The East Side,  or the South Side. But mostly, on the North Side besides the Multi-sports complex, there are some construction projects that are happening, and I’m not talking about the roads nor new stores that might sell liquor. Some are popping up. You need to get out and look that yes there are construction jobs coming and doing, but there might other jobs too.

Let’s be real. We know better than this.  All I’m saying!

 


Happy 4th again, y’all.

We already know that the country has turned another age in all, but we already know that the struggle indeed continues. And yes if you’re Black, you might had been called out being a sellout all because you wore the Red/White/Blue instead of the Red/Black/Green. Or you might have sang the National Anthem without any concern except the fact the third verse had a racial thing attached. But as we put away the fireworks in all, I’m scratching my head again.

Did anyone actually read the Declaration? I mean really?

Black folks, we know about the slavery side of 1776, but what about those whom served in both armies that guranteed freedom? Yes blacks did served under the flag back then.

I was reading Sophia A. Nelson’s book, E Plurbis One, and two of our founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams were against slavery. Did you know this?

With all the parades in America, why not enough black folks?

Frederick Douglass’ speech “What to the slave mean to the Fourth of July?” is like a call out to the hypocritical attitude of being free for most, not many. Any questions on that?

I hear folks saying, “that flag wasn’t meant for us!” What flag is?

Why do certain folks scream out “Fourth of You Lie?!”

And also to add, what are you celebrating? Like really.

How come we didn’t point out the verse “No heirling for a slave” before like last year?

Was Whitney Houston’s version of the Star Spangled Banner from 1991 the best ever?

Was Marvin Gaye’s Star Spangled Banner from 1983 good?

What about Jimi Hendrix’s version of the Anthem?

Which Team USA Basketball team was better: 1992 or 2008? 92 all the way!

Which team is America’s team deserving? I say the Green Bay Packers!

Chris Rock once said, Happy White People’s Independence Day. More recently, Damon Wayans Jr said Happy racist white people’s day. Both got slandered and attacked after telling the truth. Well white folks, had their punchlines told the truth?

Is “every way” the American way?

How many Americans did not know what Juneteenth Day was about?

How many Americans did not know that the 4th of July is not always about fireworks?

This is interesting, can this be done? Singing Lift Every Voice And Sing on Independence Day?

Check out @Tiffanydloftin’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/Tiffanydloftin/status/882409041141673985?s=09

Can the hashtag #MelalinPatriot be a thing to follow? Melalin relates to black by the way.

We know that Philly throws 4th of July Celebrations alot. But can Milwaukee have a 4th of July party concerts with the locals musicians?

And now for the final question:  Don’t be offended by the picture.

Relax and breathe.

Black folks: we know already that many of us don’t really celebrate the 4th Of July by an example of the memes below. And yes our ancestors were in shackles, branded, whipped, had no freedom, no liberty, no justice, no peace to be us. We were stripped from our former names to get the names like Toby. We were forced to be bought and paid in auctions, but like Cicely Tyson said in one of Tyler Perry’s movie Madeas Family Reunion: “Now it’s time to take your place!” We also have this tendency to tell folks not to celebrate the 4th all because our ancestors were slaves. We weren’t beaten. But the legality of those beatings linger into police brutality, racism, sexism, discrimination among minorities, and others. We get sensitive when we see our brothers and sisters wearing red white and blue and shake our heads. Why?!!!!

If a black man or a black woman wants to celebrate the 4th in a way different, LET THEM CELEBRATE! I was listening to one of my local black radio hosts on WNOV. There was a black female caller who expressed about the celebrations of Juneteenth Day. However she also expressed about celebrating the Fourth of July. As we all know from her comment that this country was built on the backs of us Black folks either as slaves and freed people. We definitely know this and should know. And the thing is we always hear about us going back to Africa. Well many people forget, not too many in Africa like us African-Americans maybe because many of us haven’t been there! Many forget that part of the slavetrade, came out of Africa which was a forgotten comment! And of course, America ate up the idea of slavery and served it until 1865, when the slaves were declared free. According to Vibe.com,  Roland Martin was on the Wendy Williams Show last year (after she talked smack about the HBCU’S), cited that black people were “technically free”:

If you had to place a marker on when black folks were technically fully free Americans, it’s 1970.

So as I look at this meme with the word Independence spelled wrong, (don’t blame the Public Schools) a Tupac pic, and all the talk about Juneteenth Day being celebrated and something forgotten, and with the ongoing crimes, racism, sexism, discrimination, police brutality, war against blacks lives, undocumented murders against black folks and many other concerns, I must ASK this:

Have we fully gained our Independence? And after celebrating Juneteenth, did we fully gained OUR freedom? Let that sink in.

Callout: Freedom is still not free. Even after 241 years. And even after 152 years. Let’s be real, the struggle to get to that freedom thing is going to take a four letter word of WORK!

And by the way if a black man or woman or kid wants to celebrate BOTH the Fourth and Juneteenth, even if you fly the flags, let them. Just let them. Some folks celebrate their birthdays on the days. Or a anniversary. Or whatever. Let’s be clear. For those of us whom are so conscious and woke, look: your opinions are just that. With all due respect. Let the folks whom are “Melanin Powered” have their day. Leave them alone!  No one is not forcing you to celebrate the holiday.  Where as you should not force anyone to say “Remember and celebrate Juneteenth Day!” Trust me you will not win that argument. You say that forcefully and folks will still sleep.  I mean correct me if I’m wrong that isn’t one of the Bill of Rights has the words, “Freedom of Expression” in it? Hey, let that sink in! And this applies to us like everyday.

Can I get a Hotep peace mixed in with a thanks of God Bless America?

Thank You.
