Here it is: it’s the post edition of the Spot and yet we are supposed to be in the post quarantine mode. Apparently, not. If one of the many have gotten their wish about “Opening America” while getting increased distance of anti-social distancing, anti physical distancing, not wearing masks, no gloves on, not taking the advice of these doctors and scientists, still blaming the democrats of taking always folks freedoms and liberties, 45 acting stupid as usual, GOP in Wisconsin are messing up, Michigan under scrutiny because a black lawmaker went to work with armed black men, plus the hunt against Black Men are still at large, and oh many morons still say the sacreglious phrase of “Happy Memorial Day” WHICH IS NOT! Allow me to scratch my head again.

Hold up: Des Moines, Iowa – WHAT IN THE HAWKEYES LOSING TO THE BADGERS HEARTLAND TROPHY ARE YOU DOING?!

Roland Martin Unfiltered: Black Man beaten in Race Attack in Iowa.

So we just found out about the “gaffe” that Joe Biden said in regards to those whom are Black Conservatives and in his words: “You Aint Black!” Well you know what, if the So-Called woke black folks whom back 45 is actually a thing well how would you explain what 45 did in terms of taking down a portrait of Barack Obama in the White House BREAKING A TRADITION that goes back 40 years?!

So it seems that our so-called President is now labeling Churches as “essential.” REALLY? And now he wants to governors of the country to open them up to bring the normalcy back together. If they don’t do it, he will. IN WHICH HE CAN’T! What will this prove? And by the way, many churches are saying no regardless!

It seems that Republicans want the citizens to rush back for more stuff all trying to get the country reopened. Wait, what has stopped them before with all the harsh disagreements?

Black folks, should Sam’s Club be boycotted after this assault on a 68 year old woman and her son at 43 years old? And her son is MY AGE!

So educators, and those whom are home schooling: How’s that Virtual Education coming along? You all need balance!

In Milwaukee, there was an officer that is being charged with a crime. For all of my Milwaukee folks who didn’t back Tom Barrett: would you back him up for this officer to be fired?

So 45 believes that voting by mail is not right, eh? What about the Poll Workers who operate the sites? You know they have to vote ahead of time!

Every Church MUST LEARN, how to do Zoom, WebEx, Tithe Online, Coordinate Meetings onilne or Audio Phone Conference just to keep up and also WORSHIP! Why is that so hard? Oh wait not everyone is “technically inclined.”

Does it feel real good to acknowledge your anniversary on the actual day of your Graduation Ceremony? Me: Tech School – 20 years. High School next month: 25.

Speaking of Grad Anniversaries: For the reunion buffs, if your Class Reunion would be cancelled for another 5 years or so due to the Coronavirus, you know you can do Zoom Video Conferencing or Facebook Messenger Rooms right?

Are folks still updating their resumes and portfolios and SKILLS to the resumes?

What jams from 1995 are folks listening to in 2020 with all this Quarantine Aftermath gripping us with pain and pestilence?

It’s good to see that the Class of 2020 is getting their due during the virus outbreak. Regardless of the outcome, they should be celebrated. Right? I mean we see it online, does that mean something?

Again: this needs to be asked and harshly questioned: when it comes to Memorial Day, why our younger folks are saying “Happy Memorial Day” like everyone is clueless? DUH! Memorial Day is not for the cheering to be happy, it’s for the deceased who lost their lives in the World Wars and it’s a day of remembrance! Y’all can stop this mess! Should those ask the dumb question need to be punched in the throat?

About 25 years ago, when folks used to ask dumb questions, it usually resounds when it’s not really a dumb question. (No question is a dumb question) My question can it be revived differently?

You need to know that BLACK PEOPLE started Memorial Day. Right? May 1st, 1865.

Memorial Day 2020 will be different because usually Baseball would be on and cracking. But what will take place of the National Pastime?

For all the movies and shows that came out in 1990, which reunion show or movie was the best one so far?

For the men and women of the Medical Game during this Pandemic, you good?

For the families of the Men and Women who lost a loved one during war, or a Veteran that kept telling his or her stories over and over again that passed on to the other side, are we good? We need to be. Hard but still.

When The Last Dance appeared 10 times for each part, did that really shocked those that Jordan was that mean dude that many couldn’t stand? But they liked him anyway?

Oh this needed to be said: in The Last Dance, Michael Jordan kind of “heckled” some Packers fans in 1998 after they lost the Super Bowl on the plane. He was like: “Hey Cheeseheads, how about those BRONCOS?!” Oh, yeah everyone hated the Pack. Someone should tell Michael not to come from Green Bay! At the time, the Packers were the 12 Time NFL Champions. 12 Times! And Jordan was on his 5th. Don’t come for Green Bay! Why you asked? And keep reminding the Chicago Bears that they haven’t won anything big since Ronald Reagan was President. One time Superbowl Champions my butt! Yeah, tell that story!

Oh let me see, when it comes to white privilage, there’s always this:

Roland Martin Unfiltered: Woman Accosts Black Cop

Does that count as being bigoted or working the fake “Slave Patrol” that is going on? Especially hunting down black men/women?

Just In: More White Privilege. Press Play:

Roland Martin Unfiltered: Central Park Karen gets FIRED!

For all you folks that accuse African-Americans threating white women that this one, expect a termination. Should that be enforced in all companies? And your face is in public.

JUST IN TODAY: This is so UNACCEPTABLE! For all those who love the cops, flagging the Blue Lives Matter Mantra of backing the cops, and seeing this hellacious act of police brutality over in Minnesota, what and where is YOUR REACTION when you see this? Your voices are silent and scared and just cowardly! This was a black male, George Floyd was arrested and one of the cops had his knee on his neck FACE DOWN! George Floyd had 8 minutes of his 46 years of life to live and died at the scene. All this since Memorial Day. By the way this will be discussed in the My Take blog coming up.

The Telegraph – George Floyd Death Scene, 2020. ****WARNING: GRAPHIC FOOTAGE****

This may be off topic, but there are talks and ideas that should be that blacks should take up arms. As in Guns, as in protection. There is a organization, NAAGA which stands for, National African American Gun Association. And it is growing! NRA is failing at the seams. After not acknowledging Philando Castile, Ahmaud Aubery, and most recently, Kenneth Walker. Should all blacks carry arms like the white counterparts which happens all the time? And oh should blacks embrace the 2nd Amendment and make it their own?

PLUS: Where is Wisconsin (especially Black Wisconsin) is in this?!

What the heck is this? TYRANNY RESPONSE TEAM?!

And the last question before we once again pay homage to our fallen military and veterans: Since when did Gov. Tony Evers had this thing regarding being like Hitler? That so-called White Privilege is heating up like a bully. You know who are the real Hitlers: Look at Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald.

Never forget the fallen!


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 who 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 a deep sense of hate.

In addition to the death of Heather Heyer, who was remembered today, there were two deputies who 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 who 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 me 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 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 I wrote that? It’s 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 a 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 every day? 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 “We’re not going to hire this black man, we’re 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  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 a 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 in 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 remain.


I hope that all are taking part of the holiday season. But I have to bring up this issue:

What is up with these organizations or well known companies that don’t hire or retain an employee who is African Decent, or African American per say who have this “concern” and folks on the other side having this so called big concern! Really, 2013? – Going into 2014?

Check this. In Wisconsin, back a couple of years ago, and I’m going in on this, there was a black resident bishop who served about 8 years of her tenure. But during her tenure, she wore African Attire most of the time. Oh, there were “critics” in the Annual Conference from UMC in the state, per say who had to comment about her attire being too African related mostly and not drawn to American in a sense. My former Resident Bishop, despite of that still rocked the African attire and braids. True story, I should point out.

What I’m reading, and hearing about organizations or companies not accepting the braids, dreads, or African Attire, is really mind boggling. Yes, in the military, females can wear the braids, but men, nope!  Which is a non concern. But I was watching NewsOne Now, and the issue was brought up. Even with a concern about a black woman who was highly qualified for a job, but was turned away all because of an Afro. REALLY?!!! It was just ridiculous to hear that there are certain workplaces, christian schools (of all of them) that don’t want their black daughters to have puffy hair. Only way to remain in the school is to cut it or have it straighten. Plus also a black woman was relieved from her job working at BP, all because once again: African Attire. And the issue of “white supremacy” has raised more times this year in regarding African American related issues or news. Oh, we know its the truth. I know the truth. Lots of folks like to say, oh 2013……..B.S.! It maybe 2013 or soon to be 2014, but I think the issues of concern will still be a hot button topic. With issues of this, years don’t matter. They don’t. We were reading this in the 1980’s, the 1990’s, the 2000’s and now the 2010’s. So where’s the secret passage way? Hello!!!!

I mean if the workplaces have Ethnic heritage days, where workers can wear their ethnic clothes from their respective cultures, then that’s one thing. But for stuff like this, it’s just another day dealing with appropriate attire. I can say this, the African Attire is far more better than sagging your pants. And it has nothing to do being dressed better like an American. And it’s not nothing against dressing up in a suit with a tie. Now tell me, is that best for business or image?
