This is video from a recent April 11, 2008 council meeting in Detroit. Amid the Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick so-called "text message scandal" and all the tension within the office of the mayor and its so-called chaos in Detroit City Hall as a result of, take a look at how Detroit's city council gets down on the floor and their interaction with each other.
What do you think of this video? Check out the sister councilwoman calling the president of council "Shrek", that big fat green lumpy looking ogre type monster from the popular children's movie. Talk about funny & crazy all at the same time. Now I know at times The Black Fist has been accused of letting city council and then mayor Charles "Charlie John" Luken have it in regards to its reckless disregard for the black community when it comes to fair distribution of tax dollars coming back into the black community and of course, we let 'em have it every chance we got when speaking against police brutality against blacks. However, this is council member -vs - council member! WTF!?!
Way too funny and way too pitiful. But hey I suppose sometimes you just have to get thangs off your chest that just can't wait even if it could be perceived as "unprofessional".
My question of the day is a simple one: "Have you ever been on your job and had to get buck wild and clock on your co-worker, supervisor, boss & etc.?" How did you feel afterward?
Yes, I'm sure most of us know there's a time and place for everything and yes, there is something called "professionalism" in the workplace, but I can't help but to feel some people can push a person over the edge at any time in any place and what comes next could be volcanic.....
Or you could just be called a "Shrek"!
You tell me.

That seems to be the $100,000 question these days.
I'm asked that question on this site, the question is asked on other sites and when I'm out and about people frequently stop me on the street to inquire on the whereabouts of Mr. Nate Livingston.
People want to know for whatever reason -- good, bad or ugly, "Where is Nate Livingston"?
To all those who have asked me my answer is always the same: "I have no idea but I'm sure wherever he is, the brother is working hard and raising his family."
To All Those Inquiring Minds: If and when I see Bro. Nate Livingston I will relay all of your inquiries and warm wishes to him. I'm sure he will appreciate constantly being in the thoughts of the people he's stood up and fought so hard for over the years.
On A Personal Note: Nate Livingston has always been a soldier on the battlefield fighting for racial equality and justice, and he has always been a dear brother to General Nikki X. We here at The Black Fist Blog wish our dear brother nothing but the very best. And when he's ready to emerge once more to do battle with the enemy, you can better believe he'll come back with a vengeance!
After all, he is...Nate Livingston!

We can appreciate the efforts of MoveOn.org in attempting to bring out the truth on Republican Senator and presidential candidate John McCain. Below is a page taken straight from the MoveOn.org website's 10 Things To Know About John McCain.
If you want a George W. Bush Part 3 administration then John McCain's your man. It is in our opinion that this devil should NEVER see inside of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. This devil is nothing more than a clone of the clown we've got now!
Don't let the soft way he talks and that practiced smile fool you!
10 things to know about McCainPass this on to a friend »
For all the coverage this week of Senator John McCain's background, there are some important things you won't learn about him from the TV networks. His carefully crafted positive image relies on people not knowing this stuff—and you might be surprised by some of it.
Please check out the list below, and then forward it to your friends, family, and coworkers. We can't rely on the media to tell folks about the real John McCain—but if we all pass this along, we can reach as many people as CNN Headline News does on a good night.
Click here to tell us how many people you can pass it on to—and to see our progress nationally:
10 things you should know about John McCain (but probably don't):
- John McCain voted against establishing a national holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Now he says his position has "evolved," yet he's continued to oppose key civil rights laws.1
- According to Bloomberg News, McCain is more hawkish than Bush on Iraq, Russia and China. Conservative columnist Pat Buchanan says McCain "will make Cheney look like Gandhi."2
- His reputation is built on his opposition to torture, but McCain voted against a bill to ban waterboarding, and then applauded President Bush for vetoing that ban.3
- McCain opposes a woman's right to choose. He said, "I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned."4
- The Children's Defense Fund rated McCain as the worst senator in Congress for children. He voted against the children's health care bill last year, then defended Bush's veto of the bill.5
- He's one of the richest people in a Senate filled with millionaires. The Associated Press reports he and his wife own at least eight homes! Yet McCain says the solution to the housing crisis is for people facing foreclosure to get a "second job" and skip their vacations.6
- Many of McCain's fellow Republican senators say he's too reckless to be commander in chief. One Republican senator said: "The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He's erratic. He's hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me."7
- McCain talks a lot about taking on special interests, but his campaign manager and top advisers are actually lobbyists. The government watchdog group Public Citizen says McCain has 59 lobbyists raising money for his campaign, more than any of the other presidential candidates.8
- McCain has sought closer ties to the extreme religious right in recent years. The pastor McCain calls his "spiritual guide," Rod Parsley, believes America's founding mission is to destroy Islam, which he calls a "false religion." McCain sought the political support of right-wing preacher John Hagee, who believes Hurricane Katrina was God's punishment for gay rights and called the Catholic Church "the Antichrist" and a "false cult."9
- He positions himself as pro-environment, but he scored a 0—yes, zero—from the League of Conservation Voters last year.10

Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain and his hypocritical junkie Stepford wife, Cindy Lou McCain.
This story was send to me back on Wednesday February 20, 2008. I've been meaning to get it on this blog for the longest yet never got around to it. Nevertheless, today's your lucky day! This story was put out after soon-to-be First Lady Michelle Obama said she could finally be proud of America, and creepy-looking Cindy Lou McCain (and yes, her middle name is actually "Lou") wasted no time in jumping right out there behind her all wide-eyed with self-righteous defensiveness & stated she didn't understand why she [Michelle Obama] would say something like that cause she'd always been proud of America...
Well Cindy Lou since you opened your big fat mouth, let's take a REAL look at who you are and after reading this piece maybe the question will arise in the minds of people, "Can and should America be proud of you?"
And "Do the people need a first lady with absolutely no self-control and no real dignity?"
Cindy Lou... This one's for you!!!
SORRY CINDY MCCAIN, IT'S TIME TO TAKE THE GLOVES OFF!

I really don't care if McCain's trophy wife is proud of her country. She is just another GOP Stepford Wife as vacant as the previous ones. Whoopie for anorexic-looking Cindy McCain in her red $5000 Yves St. Laurent power suit, with her triple string of cultured pearls, her bleached blond hair and her shiny new face-lift telling us she's proud of America. Prouder of America than---hmmmm, let's say Michelle Obama.
John McCain follows the usual "family values" profile of Republican social climbers. He divorced his first wife Carol in April 1980 and married Cindy one month later. Infidelity? Hell no!... they were just "friends".
Cindy who is 18 years younger than Gramps McCain and she who paid for McCain's first campaign for Congress in 1982 with loans from her well endowed trust fund. Her father's business and political contacts helped gain her husband a foothold into Arizona politics.
Cindy's biggest claim to fame is in 1989 when she developed an addiction to perocet and vicodin, two powerful morphine based pain killers. In 1993 she was caught stealing perocet from the supply of American Voluntary Medical Team, a charity she founded to provide health care and medications to war victims in underdeveloped nations. The DEA investigated her and with the intervention of her well-connected parents and McCain himself, Cindy got off the hook with the usual 90 day trip to a posh rehab. The American Voluntary Medical Team folded shortly after it ceased to be a supply point for Cindy's opiate habit.
The DEA agreed to keep Cindy's little misadventure in LaLa Land from the public, but then Cindy went and terminated the guy who reported her to the DEA and the details of Cindy's sordid past as a suburban trophy wife junkie all came out when the fired guy filed a wrongful termination suit against Cindy.
A few weeks after Cindy came clean about her addiction, The Variety Club cancelled her Humanitarian of the Year Award. Boo Hoo!...
Another respectable Republican mother of the Harper Valley PTA goes down. This is just a little Peyton Place of Republican family values and Cindy's a Harper Valley hypocrite!
John McCain kept Cindy under wraps during his bid for the presidency back in 2000 but now that she's out there telling us she's way prouder of America than Michelle Obama, So I'm doing America a service by telling the truth, and nothing but the whole truth about Cindy.
Michelle Obama is proud of America too, but she's not a Republican, garden club, perocet munching ex-cheerleader like Cindy. And she doesn't steal drugs from charitable organizations.
Michelle never had a trust fund like Cindy and she grew up under humble circumstances on Chicago's South Side. Her father was a pump operator and she managed to overcome her disadvantages as a working class black woman and attended Princeton then she graduated from Harvard Law School where she met Barack Obama. Michelle has paid enough dues to be far more credible than a dozen stoned out Republican trophy wives when she tells you she is proud of America. America should be proud of Michelle Obama.
The whole thing is a bunch of nonsense. Most people have the common sense to understand what this political posturing and xenophobic flag waving from the McCain camp is all about. Call me harsh, but I'm tired of Republicans wrapping themselves in the flag and smearing perfectly decent Americans.
It's time to take the gloves off!
And we here at The Black Fist Blog couldn't agree more!!!!!
Where are all the Republican racist & self-proclaimed holier-than-thou loud mouths on this one to loop it over and over and over again across our respective television screens all day and all night, week after week after week? You know who I'm talking about folks, a few dummies by the names of: Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh (a prescription dope fiend in his own right), Pat Buchanan, Bill O'Reilly, Those two silly Negroes Armstrong Williams & Michael Coleman and the like.
NO-BRAINER QUESTION: If Sen. Barack Obama's wife was a known dope fiend thieving lying phony, don't you think by now the good Senator would've been FORCED to drop completely out of the presidential race, mostly by the likes of the above mentioned self-righteous "truth & justice seeking only" clowns???
ANSWER TO WHATCHA ALREADY KNOW: Come on now. You already know.
BLACK POWER TO YOU MR. POPULIST FOR A VERY ENLIGHTENING ARTICLE!!!!!
BLACK POWER TO YOU SISTER JUDY FOR ALL YOUR POWERFUL FORWARDS I READ THEM ALL!!!!!
BLACK POWER TO ALL OF YOU WHO TAKE THE TIME TO SEND THE GENERAL NEWS & VIEWS WE CAN'T GET ANYWHERE IN THE MAINSTREAM!!!!!
BLACK POWER TO YOU SISTER MICHELLE OBAMA!!!!!
LET THE TRUTH BE FOREVER TOLD AND NOT SOLD!!!!!
AND TO EVERYONE ELSE... BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!!!

Make sure you check out the end of this video. It really allows the viewer to see the behind the scene crap that goes on at these so-called "political debates".
George W. Bush...What an American idiot on the world stage!!!

40 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered for having a dream.
The man had MORE than just a dream.
He had a VISION.
Dr. King was at the time of his murder speaking out AGAINST the war in Vietnam.
Dr. King was planning a massive protest on behalf of striking garbage workers.
Dr. King was at the time of his murder planning a massive boycott against big companies such as Coca-Cola and others in an attempt to further drive his message home of racial justice and equality.
White ameriKKKa and the white-controlled media NEVER expound on that aspect of his life.
Dr. Martin Luther King wasn't just about a DREAM and a dream speech.
Dr. Martin Luther King was REDUCED DOWN to being just a dreamer by the white-controlled media.
We see how... "Dreams" Turns To Nightmares!
An illiterate southern no-good racist cracker by the mane of James Earl Ray took the rap for the murder of Dr. King. James Earl Ray, a man who reportedly couldn't even read or write above the 5th grade became AmeriKKKa's "fallguy" and went to prison for pulling the trigger.
We wish you well in HELL James Earl!!!
The Government of these Dis-United Snakes of AmeriKKKa and its majority of "bible-toting christian white citizens" HATED Dr. King when he lived and preached. Racist cross-dressing undercover homosexual and then head of the so-called federal bureau of investigations, J. Edgar Hoover standing on his own "self-righteous & moral authority" plotted and planned against Dr. King. Wiretappings, Surveillance, and Misinformation spread by no-good J. Edgar and this ameriKKKan government about Dr. King on a daily basis feed the fuel of race-hatred and violence against Dr. King.
Government Wiretapping & Government Surveillance....Sounds like The Bush Administration and its so-called "Patriot-Act" doesn't it?
There are those still living today who believe this government was behind Dr. Kings' murder.
Those who know the black man presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama is standing on the threshold of The White House.
Those who know that with being the presidential front runner, the dangers to his own life is in constant jeopardy.
Today in Memphis, in a fluff speech given on the same balcony Dr. King was murdered on, republican presidential candidate and looong time Sen. John McCain, admitted before his prodominately black audience that he voted (under the no-good Ronald Reagan administration) AGAINST the proposed King Holiday.
Today he said he was "wrong" for casting that vote.
And today those black folks BOOED and HECKLED him to his face.
We say, RIGHT ON!!!! to those courageous FREE-THINKING black folks!!!
Talk about using a black man in his death to further themselves and look good in the public eye.
We know some of that goes on today right here in Sinsinnati behind a death that took place in April 2006 outside of City Hall.
In any event, On this 40 years later, race in AmeriKKKa is and always will be at the forefront of the conscience black man and black woman's mind.
Race Prejudice Still Exist Today in 2008 As It Did In 1968.
Thank You Dr. King For All You Gave To The Black Nation Here in AmeriKKKa.
You Chose Your Mission.
You Stood Your Ground.
You Are And Will Forever Be A Soldier.
OBSERVATION: IF EVERYBODY WHO EVER "CLAIMED" TO HAVE MARCHED WITH AND STOOD BY DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING 'ACTUALLY' MARCHED WITH AND STOOD BY DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING.... THE MAN WOULD STILL BE ALIVE TODAY.
In This Year Of What Would Have Been Your 80Th Year Of Life, Had The Bullet Of The Whiteman and His RACIST GOVERNMENT Not Snuffed You Out We Say To You...
BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!
