LAURYN HILL'S "NEUROTIC SOCIETY" ... NEW MUSIC AT LAST !


                                                R&B and Neo Soul Artist Lauryn Hill


  
Check out Lauryn Hill's new cut, "Neurotic Society"




White AmeriKKKa and dumb-down brainwashed blacks are attempting to tear down and maliciously attack our dear Soul Sistah Lauryn Hill for her new single called "Neurotic Society".  This song is suppose to be (according to whatever media element you choose to listen to) a song filled with "homophobic slurs".  Why in the world does the homosexual and lesbian community think everybody under the sun is suppose to knuckle down and accept their way of life?  There are still people in this world who do NOT!  Even while it is getting pushed down our throats everywhere we turn, through television, music, movies, literary works, & etc.

Lauryn Hill is an artist.  A creative intelligent free-thinking strong black woman of conscious.  She has just as much right to express her views and opinions as anyone else.  Oh the gay community can but Lauryn can't?  Bullshit!  Yes she can!  

Lauryn Hill is talking more about the corruption, greed, and egotistical superficial nature of AmeriKKKan society more than anything else.  It's a heavy piece of music!

Lauryn is dropping a lot of powerful knowledge in this song and spitting it quicker than Twista.  This song is not all about the gays however the so-called gay watch groups have targeted Ms. Hill as if she is a one woman destroyer of their "lifestyle".  Get a life!  If two men wanna bend each other over, do that.  If two women wanna lick it without sticking it, do that.  If these gays wanna keep shoving that mess down the public's throat we can't stop that but we do NOT have to accept it.

Lauryn do your thing girl and when you get over that hump you are facing called the "prison industrial complex", come out and keep making beautiful prolific pure artistic black conscious music!

We of black consciousness and righteous fearlessness will be right here waiting for you!

WHITE MAN'S JUSTICE, BLACK MAN'S HELL !!!






Blind Justice? Black Man Sentenced to 50 Years for Stealing Ribs

May 31, 2013.


Willie Smith Ward of Waco, TX was sentenced to 50 years for tucking a rack of ribs under his shirt inside of a local grocery store in September 2011. The jurors in Waco’s 19th State District Court were less than impressed with 43-year-old Ward’s previous five felony and four misdemeanor convictions and recommended that Ward be sentenced to 50 years in prison as a habitual criminal.


Jurors took two minutes on Wednesday to convict Ward on robbery charges and about an hour to decide his punishment, according to a local news website. His conviction for stealing the $35 ribs was considered a robbery after he threatened a store employee who followed him out to the parking lot and interrogated him about the bulge in his shirt. The employee testified that he asked Ward what was under the shirt and the slab of ribs fell to the ground. He asked Ward what else he was hiding and Ward said, “I got a knife.” The employee added that Ward further threatened him by stating: “If you don’t leave me alone, I’ll show you what I got.” At that point, Ward ran off.

“This verdict shows that the citizens of this county will not tolerate a continued disrespect and disregard for other people and their property,” said Assistant District Attorney J.R. Vicha, who prosecuted Ward with Chris Bullajian. “People who choose to do so will be dealt with seriously and appropriately.” Ward’s sentence and conviction comes just months after the U.S. Sentencing Commission released a report revealing that Black men received sentences that were a whopping 19.5 percent longer than white men found guilty for similar crimes between December 2007 and September 2011.

The mass incarceration of our Black men is evident, especially in racist states like Texas. We can not allow Ward’s punishment to go unchallenged.


(Story Courtesy of Your Black World News)



Really Brothers & Sisters???  A "rack of ribs"???  I'll tell you, it never cease to amaze me about the babylonion justice that is dealt out to our people in this land of bullshit and hypocrisy!  Then the white man in the story above proudly stated in that last statement, "We can not allow Ward's punishment to go unchallenged."  This devil is diabolically wicked to the umpteenth degree.

50 damn years in the pen for some ribs.  We see how the black man can't catch a break under this unjust just-us system. Catching cases for so-called crimes where the punishment doesn't even fit.  Brothers, when you catch a case your woman suffers too.  She has to hold down the family and the home if the two of you have a child(ren), and if you don't have a child(ren) together then she's just out here holding herself down ... and you!

The black family unit is destroyed when these brothers go to prison!  And for Willie Smith Ward's family, one can only wonder what they are experiencing and dealing with.  In looking at this man's mugshot photo, it looks like Willie Smith Ward got his ass beat by the pigs before he was "taken into custody".  Do you smell police brutality?  We do!

Bottom Line is This:  Who gives a shit if this man stole a rack of ribs or if he stole a pound of ribeye steaks!  50 fucking years for a misjudgment like that is absolutely absurd!  It really comes down to 50 years in prison for being hungry!


The Black Man and The Black Woman Never Needed Statistical Data To Tell Us This Judical System Is Racist & Fucked Up !!!  We Know It !!!

This Is Just Another Example of White Man's Justice, Black Man's Hell !!!

CLEVELAND HERO CHARLES RAMSEY IS NOW A $10K MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER






              (Drawing courtesy of our good friend and talented artist, Bearman)




Charles Ramsey, cult-hero for role in rescue of missing Cleveland woman, signs speaking deal with Las Vegas firm, could make $10K per appearance


May 30, 2013.


CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Charles Ramsey, the Cleveland man who gained national recognition and cult-hero status for his part in the May 6 rescue of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight after being held captive for a decade, has signed a deal to become a celebrity speaker.


Ramsey has signed on with Bruce Merrin’s Celebrity Speakers & Entertainment Bureau. Merrin said in a news release that he was captivated when he saw Ramsey’s interview with Anderson Cooper on his CNN show “Anderson Cooper 360” and another CNN program.

Merrin said in a phone interview today that while he has not lined up any speaking engagements for Ramsey yet, he expects that he would speak at trade conventions, corporate functions and maybe "meet and greet" public appearances.


"The kind of typical speaking engagement we do would be in the $10,000 range. Some might be less, some might be more."

Asked what Ramsey might speak about, aside from recounting the rescue of Amanda Berry, Merrin said: "I see this presentation speech being a little bit short when he does tell his personal story, and then a lot of Q&A."


In the news release he said: “Charles' story touched my heart. When he heard Amanda Berry screaming and crying out for help, he immediately jumped into action. He forcibly kicked the front door open, and assisted Amanda and her baby to freedom. They both called 9-1-1.

"Charles Ramsey is a true hero to me. I admire and respect him.”

The news release claims that Merrin's bureau has "booked every Past President of the United States since President Reagan, and dozens of sports superstars and motivational speakers like Dr. Wayne Dyer, Jack Canfield, Michael Beckwith and Bob Proctor. "

Ramsey gained worldwide acclaim when he stopped eating his McDonald's Big Mac to help free Berry, who was trying to escape from a house next door on Seymour Avenue on the city's near West Side on May 6. His account of the rescue has been contradicted in parts by others, but Ramsey's video interviews have gone viral on the Web.

Since then, he has disavowed any endorsement of the burgers or an online video game produced in Taiwan that features his likeness.


Bill "Since then, he has disavowed any endorsement of the burgers or an online video game produced in Taiwan that features his likeness."


But...he's willing to sign a speaking deal for $10K per appearance...I thought he told everyone he wasn't looking to profit off any of this...Just be the hero you are.

NAACP members urged to vote 'no confidence' on Smitherman 

 Dear Editor:


Earlier in the month, I began contacting NAACP members asking them to join me at the May 23 monthly membership meeting of the Cincinnati Branch of the NAACP that was to have been held at Unity Baptist Church in Evanston.

I had encouraged members to take votes on the following: 1. Re-affirm that the NAACP is bigger than any one man, it is an organization that stands on principle. 2. Re-state our commitment to the principles expressed in a press release issued by the Cincinnati Branch on June 15, 2009: • The Cincinnati NAACP opposes budget cuts that disproportionately impact African Americans and the poor (i.e. swimming pools, recreation centers, and health clinics). • The Cincinnati NAACP believes taxing exercised stock options is fair. • The Cincinnati NAACP believes there should be "no sacred cows" during a discussion of budget cuts during a "financial crisis," the police and fire departments should be considered for cuts. • The Cincinnati NAACP recommends direct management of overtime in the police and fire departments. • The Cincinnati NAACP recommends the complete suspension of the police horse program. • The Cincinnati NAACP recommends the City stop underwriting all off-duty details through District 1. 3. In February 2009, Cincinnati NAACP President Christopher Smitherman orchestrated a "no confidence" vote concerning Mayor Mark Mallory's leadership. At the time, Smitherman insisted the vote wasn't personal, it was about holding elected officials accountablefor their votes. That's old news, but what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

I urged the members to take a vote of "no confidence" in the leadership of every sitting member of the City Council who advocates positions contrary to those held by the Cincinnati NAACP -- budget cuts that disproportionately impact Black and poor people; opposition to taxing exercised stock options (or failure to do anything to advance the discussion during this Council term); and treatment of the police and fire departments like sacred cows.

I had assurances from several members that they would attend the May 23 meeting and they would insist on taking the votes, even if it meant voting no confidence in Councilmember Smitherman, who just happens to be the Branch's president, because of his proposal to balance the budget on the backs of Blacks! Specifically, Smitherman has suggested cutting all City funding of the Center for Closing the Health Gap, the African American Chamber of Commerce, Juneteenth, and the Black Family Reunion.

On May 23, Smitherman issued a statement cancelling the meeting and claiming the NAACP is on summer recess until August. Was this done to suppress the vote or otherwise prevent members from expressing their believe that Councilmember Smitherman's votes on Council and political advocacy run counter to the principles held by the Cincinnati NAACP? Was this a stall tactic to give Smitherman time to rally his political supporters who rarely attend meetings? I tried to find out. I placed a call to the National Office today seeking clarity, and spoke with Rev. Gil Ford. He stated he knew nothing about the meeting being cancelled.

I continue to urge a vote of no confidence in Smitherman. Since Smitherman cancelled the May 23 meeting, I'll keep pushing to have the members take votes in what is supposed to be an organization run by members, not a dictator.

ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS



Greetings Beautiful Brothers & Sisters,


I have been receiving a lot of email inquries regarding our upcoming "Black Power Convention" this summer.  I wanted to answer the questions most asked here in the blog post for everyone to see.

The brothers and sisters want to know 2 things especially:

  1. "Where will the convention be?"
                  -And-

    2. (Based on my eluding to "fun & sun in an exotic location"), "Will a passport be needed?"


I will offer that a location has not been established as of the writing of this entry.  I will also offer that it is best to get a passport just in case it is out of the country.


IMPORTANT NOTICE:

If any brother or sister out there who is thinking about joining us this year and they do not already have a passport I would suggest you apply for one as soon as possible.  Passports are not issued on the spot, there is a waiting period.

Also, if any brother or sister out there has a felony or is registered as sex offender or is currently on probation or have ALL 3 criminal issues, you will NOT be permitted a passport therefore rendering you ineligible to join us abroad, if that happens to be our location.

Any brothers or sisters on probation for a crime committed or a failure to register as a sex offender crime will most likely NOT be granted permission to leave the state or country (and yes, you MUST get permission from your Probation Officer before just up & jetting off somewhere). 

The United States Department of Passports will NOT issue you passport if you are a convicted felon or a registered sex offender.



Alright brothers and sisters!  I hope I answered 2 of your most frequently asked questions.  If there are more questions please feel free to hit me up at my email address that can be found on the profile page of this website.

We are gonna have so much fun at the convention this year!


STAY TUNED!!!

COUNCIL COMMITTEE OKs BUDGET





Council committee approves budget


05/29/13 at 11:55am by Jane Prendergast


The budget Cincinnati City Council will vote on Thursday lays off no police officers or firefighters, raises property taxes in 2015, counts on millions from the casino and borrows money from savings.


READ MORE ON THE CITY BUDGET HERE


Council’s budget committee approved it this morning after acknowledging it’s still not structurally balanced and adds to the financial pressure for the future. It passed 8-1.


Laure Quinlivan was the only council member to vote against today’s budget motion

Sixty people will be laid off. They work in administration, health, recreation and parks.

“We are using one-time sources in order to prevent what many people feel is an untenable option,” said Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls, referring to laying off police officers and firefighters.


Addressing crime can’t be done by reducing police, she said, and the fire department can’t accommodate any more brownouts, where pieces of equipment sitidle while there’s no staffing to operate them.


“No one should think that there aren’t sacrifices,” Qualls said, pointing out cuts in parks, public services and health. “There will be an impact on people in our community.”

All but one council member signed on to the budget. The one who didn’t: Laure Quinlivan. She said by keeping all police and fire expenses as they are, the budget’s not sustainable.


“We’ve completely turned our backs on the arts community,” she said. “We say we want the creative class in this community. But we’ve just told tem we don’t care.”

She advocated for $50,000 worth of small grants to artists and $65,000 for flower pots in neighborhoods, among other things. Both of those were cut. The Green Energy Alliance funding she wanted was restored.

Also restored: $50,000 to the Greater Cincinnati Film Commission. That issue drew actor Emilio Estevez, in town prepping to film a movie. His movie will bring jobs and money into the city, he said, and the only reason he’s here is because when he cold-called cities around the country, he got a returned call from the local film commission.


Today’s document, with eight signatures on it, is a motion that lists some of what would be saved and cut in the budget. The actual ordinances will be prepared for a vote tomorrow.


Christopher Smitherman, who signed today’s budget motion, said he won’t vote for the budget tomorrow. He won’t support raising property taxes, and the budget includes an increase in 2015.

He also wants to decide tomorrow how, if any extra tax revenue comes in during May and June, to allocate that money. He also wants to work toward more sharing of services with other communities.

“Voting no is difficult,” he said. “Signing my name on this motion today was difficult for me.”


He said he did it because he thought it showed he’s willing to compromise.

Yvette Simpson said this to the people being laid off: “Godspeed. God bless. And I apologize that we couldn’t help you here.”

Very interesting parting statement from Councilwoman Simpson to the people being laid off.  Looks like the voting citizens of Cincinnati must say the same thing to you in November Ms. Simpson.

STALKING PART III: KNOW THE SIGNS



In the third part of our series on "Stalking", it is best to actually know when you are being stalked.  An ex-lover who won't leave you alone and constantly harasses you is stalking you.

Knowing the signs of when you are being stalked is actually the first step in protecting yourself.  Here are some of the basic actions of an unbalanced unwanted obsessed stalker:




You are being stalked when a person repeatedly watches, follows or harasses you, making you feel afraid or unsafe. A stalker can be someone you know, a past boyfriend or girlfriend or a stranger. While the actual legal definition varies from one state to another, here are some examples of what stalkers may do:



•Show up at your home or place of work unannounced or uninvited.

•Send you unwanted text messages, letters, emails and voicemails.

•Leave unwanted items, gifts or flowers.

•Constantly call you and hang up.

•Use social networking sites and technology to track you.

•Spread rumors about you via the internet or word of mouth.

•Make unwanted phone calls to you.

•Call your employer or professor.

•Wait at places you hang out.

•Damage your home, car or other property.

  ..... And knowing is half the battle!  Protect yourself sisters.  Our series on "Stalking" will continue .....


******************************************************************

ADDENDUM

This Just In:  This email was just sent in from a sister who is being stalked by her ex.  It is a perfect example of the misguided delusions this stalker is suffering from.  This sister broke up with her stalker almost 14 months ago, and has not spoken to him in almost 4 months.  Yet the stalker talks in this email as if they are still together and still communicating.  WTF?!?
If you will notice this sister's stalker claims no one knows his side of the story only the woman's side (isn't that what ALL obsessed stalkers say?), well here is the stalker's fantasy side.  

Please Read Below:


"I um

Just read the Blog of yours, and you need to stop that shit! stealing from a person also stalkers do too.


Stop the denial of True love.

The Love we Had/have is something that we built a solid foundation upon, and is up to the both of us LOVE to make our living better. And um, If I can realize that WE belong together, then by now I know you realize this also.

Yeah, going through the emotions, and what each other will, and will not accept was tough for us, but we made it through.

When you place those stories on the blog, BUT Know one ever gets to read FROM ME directly, people know, and realize how controling you MUST be within OUR relationship, AND Know that the other's View point, and Blackman's Conscienceness, including Rightousness w/Firm ,solid Foundation with social construction of reality MUST be right, and NOT going to permit any woman to Overrun him in the aspects of the relation."

BLACK CINCINNATI CITY COUNCILMAN CHRIS SMITHERMAN WANTS ALL BLACK ORGANIZATIONS DEFUNDED




From The Facebook Page of Nathaniel Livingston Jr.:


Last week, I didn't get around to discussing the latest stunt pulled by Chris Smitherman on this page or on the Cincinnati Black Blog. Here's the short version of events. Chris sent out a press release saying the NAACP was going on "summer recess" until August. He unilaterally cancelled all meetings to avoid having to face the membership and a NO CONFIDENCE vote. He couldn't defend his record (inc...luding his proposal to balance the budget on the backs of Blacks by cutting ALL city funding to damn near every Black organization in town -- the African American Chamber, the Center for Closing the Health Gap, Juneteenth, the Black Family Reunion, etc.) so he tried to stop the meetings. Here's the rest of the story though. The NAACP's National Office contacted Chris and told him he can't do that. They ordered him to hold the meeting and to keep holding monthly meetings. To the best of my knowledge, Chris has refused. He's stalling for time. (There have also been several complaints filed with National Office asking them to remove Chris from his position for various reasons.)


I'm doing my best to share information on this Facebook page. I think that's what social media should be all about. As I get more information, I'll keep sharing it. —
             

TOM JOYNER GOES IN ON TAVIS SMILEY: DO YOU AGREE WITH HIM?



COMMENTARY: Tom Joyner’s Opinion on Tavis Smiley’s White House Accusations


May 27, 2013.



                                            Pictured: Tavis Smiley


                                            Pictured: Tom Joyner


Tavis Smiley, a persistent critic of President Barack Obama, now claims that the White House is quietly and systematically wrecking his initiatives by pressuring corporate sponsors to drop their support for Smiley’s projects.



Smiley told the Associated Press that members of the Obama administration, whom he didn’t identify, have successfully convinced sponsors to stop funding Smiley’s ventures, including his anti-poverty initiatives.

“This administration does not like to be criticized. And the irony of it is, there’s nothing I have tried to hold the president accountable on that my white progressive colleagues have not,” Smiley told the AP. “They’re labeled courageous critics, but if I say it, I’m an ‘Obama critic.’

There’s race at play in the very question.”


Smiley, who is celebrating his 10th year on the air with PBS television, has also been traveling across the country on his so-called anti-poverty tour where he often criticizes Obama for not talking enough about poverty in America.



“I don’t have an anti-Barack agenda,” Smiley said, “but this is what I do: My job is to raise questions of accountability.”

But Tom Joyner, host of “The Tom Joyner Morning Show,” said Tuesday that he doesn’t believe the Obama administration is strong-arming Smiley’s sponsors, adding that Smiley’s ratings are low and advertisers are jumping ship.


“Tavis, here’s the problem: Your sponsors are pulling out because you don’t have numbers,” Joyner told his listeners on Tuesday’s show. “That’s your problem. You don’t have a platform. You’re losing affiliates; you’re losing sponsors; not because someone is plotting against you.”



The White House had no comment about Smiley’s allegations, but Smiley’s claims seem especially shaky since he refuses to name the Obama administration officials who he claims are pressuring his sponsors.

So is the White House really overly concerned about Smiley’s criticism of the president? Do unnamed administration officials really spend their waking hours trying to silence Smiley by calling Smiley’s sponsors and threatening them? Does Smiley’s opinion of Obama trump the White House’s concern about putting more Americans back to work, helping to rebuild Moore, Oklahoma after a deadly tornado, and protecting citizens from terrorists?


Or does Smiley, as usual, have an inflated sense of his own self-value and a skewed view of his influence over the White House?


In a month where Republicans have accused Obama of everything imaginable –with the possible exception of Robert Griffin III’s knee injury — it seems that Smiley snagged a timely moment to pile on.

I would argue that the White House doesn’t care enough about Smiley to assemble a team of administration officials who would surreptitiously spend time thinking up new and creative ways to suppress Smiley’s voice.


And, truth be told, some radio executives aren’t listening to Smiley anymore either.

And, truth be told, some radio executives aren’t listening to Smiley anymore either.

Last year, several public radio stations including Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis and Boston, cancelled Smiley’s radio show, “Smiley and West,” a radio program which also featured Princeton University Professor Cornel West.



“The show had developed much more of an ‘advocacy’ identity, which is inconsistent with our approach on WBEZ,” said a spokesman for the Chicago station WBEZ. “The goal is to present public affairs content that is reasonably balanced. We feel that Smiley & West had become a departure from this approach.”

Smiley says his self-imposed mandate in life is to hold Obama’s feet to the fire and keep him accountable to black people. That’s his choice and his path to follow, but I don’t believe there’s a clandestine campaign within the Obama administration that is secretly trying to shut Smiley down.


He’s just not that important.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY NEGRO!


Greetings Faithful Readers of The Black Fist Blog!

Preface: We here at The Black Fist Blog believe that based on the racial hatred, lynchings, Jim Crow, discrimination, 400 years of chattel slavery, flatout wicked evilness and murderous savage brutality of the whiteman, and unequal everything here in this good ol' U.S.of A. that was stolen from the Red Man that no black man or black woman should ever militarily serve this so-called land of the "free" and home of the so-called "brave" country called AmeriKKKa.


In leiu of this so-called holiday called "Memorial Day", we bring to you a piece of black history that you may not have known.  Although the members of The Black Fist Organization do not believe in negroes fighting in any branch of military service other than "The Black Liberation Army for Self-Defense and Preseveration" we do understand that since the beginning of bloodshed and murder in this country and abroad black men and women have served this whiteman's army faithfully loyally ... and served him well.

Check out this little known black history fact that the whiteman sure wasn't breaking his neck to teach you in his little lily white biased "halls of education", called public schools.

Epilogue: For those black men and women who have served in the past: We say you can't change what has been done. You did what you did despite the fact the whiteman hated your guts before you put on the uniform and didn't really want you there in the first place. 

To the black men and women who are currently enlisted: Pray you come out in one piece to have a job, some benefits, and some racial equality and rights when you get "home".  You really should have learned from the past in the way your fellow negro servicemen were treated in the military and especially when they got "home", but you didn't so there you go. 

There are black men and women right now serving in Iraq and Afganistan getting all kinds of limbs blown off just to come home to "exist" on the government food stamp program and live in lower development homes (projects & slums) because "their" presidential administration (past & present) has given them the shaft, and quite frankly has forgotten all about them.

And those are the ones who haven't lost their sanity due to PTSD (Post-Tramatic Stress Disorder), committed suicide, or tried to kill someone else.

Word of Advice: Let this whiteman fight for his own stolen land, and let the black man keep his eye on the prize! Which is equal treatment in this land free of police brutality, racial hatred, low wage employment (or no employment at all), poor public schools, black poverty & destitution, poor housing, and extremely unequal ecomonic disparity.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY NEGRO!
TEN-HUT!

Did You Know Memorial Day Was Started by Ex-Slaves?


May 27, 2013


One of the things that most black people know is that the public school system does a horrible job teaching black history. They will gladly tell you all the wonderful things that white people did and maybe even go back to Europe, but the contributions of African Americans are kept entirely on the backburner.

A fact that you should probably know is that African Americans are the reason that Memorial Day even exists in the first place. According to Professor David Blight of Yale University, the event began on May 1, 1865. A group of former slaves in Charleston, SC gave a proper burial to 257 Union soldiers who’d been put into a mass grave.

The black community of Charleston then consecrated the new cemetary with “an unforgettable parade of 10,000 people.” The event was initially called “Decoration Day” and was led by 3,000 black school children who started off by singing the song “John Brown’s Body.” They were then followed by hundreds of black women with baskets of flowers and crosses. After that, black men marched behind them in cadence, followed by Union infantry.

The Union soldiers lived in horrible conditions, and 257 of them died from exposure and disease. This was the reason for the creation of the mass grave site. A total of 28 black men went to the site an re-buried the men properly, largely as a thank you for helping fight for their freedom.

They also built a fence around the cemetary, and on the outside, put the words, “Martyrs of the Race Course.”

Now you know the rest of the story. Go tell this one to everyone you know.

We here at The Black Fist Blog are always on the lookout for stories about what crazy white folks are up to, but this right here could not be resisted!  What possessed (or maybe I shouldn't have used the word "possessed" for a graveyard story, huh?) these two negroes to have a cookout in a fucking cemetary?

In a fucking graveyard?!?  Why?  Because it's "Memorial Day" weekend and they wanted to be closer to their dead people?  If that is the case, there has GOT to be some other way to remember their lost folks other than Bar-B-Qing in a graveyard.  And what about the person described in the caption that just happen to be visiting his decreased mama and ran upon this mess...?  Lawd help us all!

File this one under ... Just plain creepy!

SHOULD FACEBOOK BE CALLED "DEATHBOOK"?



Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

Here's another story about how the social media website Facebook was used as a vehicle for a black man to murder his woman.  How many of these stories do I have to write before this madness ends?  I thought Facebook was created as a tool to communicate and disseminate information over the internet to friends, family, and associates.  It is a Babylonion mystery why it is being used to stalk, harass, terrorize, brutalize, and aid in the viciousness of domestic violence, mayhem, and murder

Below is a story that examplifies just how the social media tool Facebook is being used in the commission for psychotic negroes to hunt down and kill their women.  This story could have been placed in the category of our ongoing series on "Stalking", but I have decided to let it stand alone.

This is sad and crazy brothers and sisters but in the world we are living today, this is also way too real!

Check it out and add your thoughts in our comment section.

Man Posts Pictures of New Gun on Facebook, then Allegedly Murders His Girlfriend with It


A man in Pennsylvania is being charged with killing his girlfriend with a gun that he bought at Walmart. Right before the murder, he took a picture of the gun and posted it on Facebook.

Gregory Twyman was arrested after he called 911, asking for police: “I need the police, I just shot my girlfriend.”

When police arrived, Gregory was on his porch smoking a cigarette. That’s when police went inside and found the body of Jamica Woods, the mother of his 18-year old daughter. She’d been shot in the torso, according to police.

When he proudly posted the pictures of the alleged murder weapon on Facebook, friends asked him what it was:

“What is that bro???” a friend asked.

“A shell fool,” he responded.

“I’m calling the ATF on your a*s now… LOL….” his friend said, joking.

“Gon be too late,” Twyman said.

Sounds like he might have been thinking this one through for a long time

CHARLES RAMSEY: THE NEW BURGER KING OF MCDONALDS

                                  Cleveland Superman Charles Ramsey



Charles Ramsey will get free McDonald's for a year and gratis burgers from local Ohio restaurants for life.


NEW YORK (CNNMoney)


One hero's reward, coming right up.


Charles Ramsey, who helped rescue the three Cleveland women held captive by Ariel Castro, will get free McDonald's from his local fast food favorite for the next year, a McDonald's spokeswoman said.


The big burger gift comes after Ramsey repeated, in interview after interview, that he had gone to McDonald's before rescuing the women and rushed to their aid carrying a "half-eaten Big Mac."


The fast food company also donated $10,000 to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in the names of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight, thethree women who were held hostage for years.

Thousands of people took to Twitter in the days after the rescue, urging McDonald's (MCD, Fortune 500) to respond to Ramsey's Big Mac close-up.


"Free burgers for life!" one man tweeted. "It was the best advert you could get -- Heroes eat Big Macs," another wrote." Others called for him to star in a commercial and become the next Ronald McDonald.

McDonald's was so inundated with suggestions that the company felt compelled to respond, Danya Proud, a McDonald's spokeswoman, said at the time.


But for weeks, McDonald's was quiet regarding whether it had contacted Ramsey. Proud said it was out of respect for the victims and their families. At the same time, court documents surfaced that detailed Ramsey's run-ins with the law, including convictions for domestic violence, burglary and drug abuse. His last offense was in 2003.


Restaurants are still lauding him as a hero, and making sure he won't go hungry after his year-long McDonald's binge. 14 local Ohio restaurants announced they'll also give him free burgers -- for life.

All he has to do is flash his 'Chuck Card,' a lifetime pass printed just for him, at participating restaurants and he's guaranteed the gratis ground beef.


Hodges, a restaurant in downtown Cleveland where Ramsey happens to work as a dishwasher, is going even further. The restaurant is now offering the Ramsey Burger, modeled after the Big Mac.

Hodges manager Nate Gosselin said they sold 50 Ramsey Burgers the first day they were offered two weeks ago. The restaurant usually sells 20 burgers a day, total.

"It's been wildly popular," he said. "It's even on our permanent new menu now."

Gosselin said that partnering with the other restaurants to give Ramsey free burgers was a no-brainer.

"It was a really great gesture and something that we want to recognize him for," he said.

Scott Kuhn, a partner in Driftwood Restaurant Group, which owns Hodges and five other participating restaurants, said Ramsey has yet to pick up his Chuck Card, since he is out of town.

Attempts to contact Ramsey were unsuccessful.

It's nice to know that a Fortune 500 company like McDonalds would finally do what is right by this heroic brother.  Now all Bro. Ramsey has to do is be cool and eat up! Since Mickey Ds has donated money to those white broads you just take this McDonalds gift and keep yo' mouth shut Mr. Ramsey.  We say this outta love bruh because you have a habit of giving all of your rewards to those white girls whom by the way has a total of $650,000 already banked on their behalf ... So take the McDonalds & run! ;-)

                               (911 Cell Phone Calling Criminal Scott Simon)


Friday, May 24, 2013


Man Accidentally Pocket Dials 911 and Tells on Himself



Police detectives often spend months, even years, searching for assailants in criminal cases. Then there are other instances where the alleged criminal implicates himself and just seems fated for arrest.

One Florida man hadn’t even committed a crime when he mistakenly pocket dialed 911 and revealed that he was planning a murder.

Authorities say Scott Simon, 24, can be heard on a recorded 911 call from May 5th saying he’s going to follow Nicholas Romondo Walker, 33, and kill him. After the murder, police were able to link the 911 call to the death of Walker.The call was made just minutes before Walker’s death. Police have arrested Simon and charged him with first degree murder.

Walker was reportedly entering I-95 when he was shot multiple times, causing him to crash on the highway. Investigators say they don’t think Simon pulled the trigger in the shooting, but that he orchestrated the hit on Walker.


Police believe an argument at Waffle House led to the shooting. Authorities reviewed surveillance video from Waffle House on the night of the argument and interviewed people who witnessed the argument between Walker and Simon.

Both Simon and Walker have previous arrests. Walker has 19 previous arrests, including cocaine possession, distribution, grand theft, resisting arrest and driving violations. Simon’s 15 previous arrests include fraud and cocaine possession.

Walker’s mother said she’s “very happy” about the arrest.

Police are still looking for two other men in the video who may have been connected to the shooting.

                                    Pictured: Actors Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman


Morgan Freeman isn’t a young man anymore, but he works as if he were just 22 years old. The 75-year old actor has created some unwanted buzz for himself by falling asleep during a live interview. The interview was super early in the morning and he didn’t seem to want to do it.


Freeman was promoting a new film, “Now You See Me” co-starring Michael Caine when it all went down. The actors were being asked about the film, and Caine was giving a lively response, when it appeared that Freeman had just had enough. His eyes were closed and he wasn’t responsive, which has created a frenzy on the Internet, since none of us have ever seen an actor do something like this. But hey, if you’ve done one press junket, you done them all, at least if you’re Morgan Freeman.


Freeman has received Academy Award nominations for his performances in Street Smart, Driving Miss Daisy, The Shawshank Redemption and Invictus and won in 2005 for Million Dollar Baby. Freeman was discovered nationally for his roles on “Another World,” and “The Electric Company.” Since then, his smooth voice and amazing acting ability have graced screens for the last 40 years.


When you have that kind of star power, you can fall asleep every now and then, and nobody is going to say anything about it. We just hope that he isn’t communicating that his film is going to put audience members to sleep as well.

The outcome of 'American Idol' was exciting for all concerned / Kevin Winter/Getty Images



Knives out over Candice Glover versus Kree Harrison

American Idol fever — and the drinks — were so strong in one Pennsylvania home that a couple ended up stabbing each other during the recent season finale.


According to the York Dispatch (via the Hollywood Reporter), 48-year-old Karen Elaine Harrelson and 57-year-old Gregory L. Stambaugh were watching the show and drunkenly arguing about which of the two finalists should win: Candice Glover or Kree Harrison. At some point, police told the Dispatch, one person grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the other. Then the stabbing victim stabbed the stabber.

Luckily, neither sustained life-threatening injuries. Unluckily, both were hit with assault charges and at last check were in prison pending tens of thousands of dollars' bail.


For those who'd like to play this particular Idol drinking game, the couple helpfully told police their beverages of choice. Stambaugh said Harrelson got the party going with beer and tequila at 5 a.m., which we don't think is a typo because Stambaugh said he followed at noon with beer and, in the newspaper's words, "a pint of Scotch."


In case you didn't know because Idol's ratings were way down or because you were drinking Scotch by the pint, Candice Glover was named this year's winner. Our congratulations to her. And to everyone: The next time you begin drinking at 5 a.m., please don't play with knives.

I mean really?!?!?  Over American Idol?!?!?  To hell with bail !!! These two goofballs need to stay in jail !!!

HEY BLACK MAN! FATHER OBAMA KNOWS BEST



Here is the full commencement speech given by President Barack Obama to the graduates of the HBCU Morehouse.  The graduates of Morehouse College are black males so it was no surprise to anyone (who has been paying attention) that the President preached, chastized, lectured, talked down to, and barked at these young black men of the future as if they were just some negroes hanging on the corner with their pants down below their butts smoking weed doing nothing all day but chilling.

In my previous blog "What Has Obama and his Administration Done For Blacks?", I included an article by Your Black World News which hit the nail on the head detailing President Obama's paternalistic view of black men that he seems to think need a good lecturing every time he takes the podium to address them (which is every blue moon anyway).

If only the President had the heart and balls to talk to the Republican white man up in Congress, The Tea Party, those racist devils over at the Fox News Network, The so-called Jews, The gays & lesbians, and The hispanic community in this manner.  Then maybe just maybe he would be more respected by the struggling masses of blacks on the ground and not think of himself as the "father knows best for the shiftless lazy whining negro race" orator when addressing black people [men] who can see, hear, feel, and realize the distinctions in his [hypocritical] speaking style and tone when addressing them.

He did that same shit when he addressed the NAACP Convention hosted here in the boycott zone of Cincinnati a few years ago.  Some blacks were not happy with his "negroes pull yourself up by your bootstraps" lecture then, even more blacks aren't happy with his "negroes get over your crybaby blather about racism" lecture today.

Check out the full 32 minute speech below and you judge for yourself!

SINGER MIGUEL ALMOST DECAPITATES WOMAN AT 2013 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS




                            


R&B Singer Miguel just might be the clumiest singing-est negro on the planet.  This man can not perform a song anywhere in the world without falling off the stage and landing on ass!  At a Miguel concert, his fans in the front row better be ready to pick this little negro up off the floor and sub-plant him back on stage ... because he will eventually spin his little legs right off the stage.

Below are two videos of Miguel performing his hit song "Adorn". The first video is from earlier this year when Miguel was performing the original version in London and SPLATTT!!!  The second video is the much talked about performance from Sunday night's 2013 Billboard Music Awards Live in Vegas where Miguel sang a slightly remixed slowed down version of "Adorn" ... And yes you guessed it SPLATTT!!!  Only this time Miguel almost decapitated a woman causing her head to snap back knocking her to the floor and breaking her eye glasses.  Another woman (the woman's friend) caught a boot from high-flying Miguel also.  Check out the brother standing next to them both, he couldn't believe what he was seeing!

Backstage the woman claimed she was alright (although Miguel was standing right there next to her as she gazed at him still starstruck holding the ice pack she was given to place on her head and neck).  I smell a lawsuit in the upcoming days, don't you? 

I must admit both videos are funny as hell.  Check 'em out!



WHAT HAS OBAMA AND HIS ADMINISTRATION DONE FOR BLACKS?



Greetings Brothers & Sisters,

Here is a story that's been making the rounds on various news blogs and social media. 

This story is about a visit President Barack Obama made to the HBCU Morehouse, where he proceed to [once again] lecture to the black male graduates in attendance about "what they should and should not do".

President Obama's so-called "message to the black man" is growing stale, tired, old, and quite frankly it's full o' BS!  I could go on and on about this subject however, I think the good folks over at Your Black World News did an excellent job conveying the sentiments of what a lot of us in the black community around the nation are feeling over President Obama's paternalistic view of the black man while he views the whiteman as "on his level" and can do no wrong.

Check out this article courtesy of Your Black World News, and tell us what you think about the President's continual lecturing of the black man, his feelings, his behavior, and his reactions to the very real domestic terrorism called "racism and systematic institutionalized discrimination".

We want to hear from you!



Was President Obama Being Disrespectful to Morehouse Men? Some are Saying “Yes”






This week, President Barack Obama honored the men at Morehouse College by serving as their commencement speaker. The theme of the president’s address centered around taking responsibility and not using racism as an excuse for your lack of success. The message is a good one on the surface, but a consistent tone of discomfort has resonated with some social commentators, particularly those who contrast this speech with those that the president gives to the white community.


Some are saying that the president gave these young black men the kind of speech he’d never have the courage to give to a white audience. The president’s message on personal responsibility might seem appropriate to some, but it has been argued that President Obama’s administration uses black personal responsibility as an escape from their own responsibility to back meaningful policy against racism. For example, the Obama Administration has yet to unveil a plan to deal with chronic black unemployment which has worsened since Obama came into office in 2008, while white unemployment has improved.



Tim Wise, a white anti-racism essayist, says that the president is often quick to lean on this racial double standard when speaking with members of the black community:


"Sometimes, white privilege is as simple as knowing that, generally speaking, if you’re white, you’ll be perceived as competent and hard-working until proven otherwise, while people of color — even those who have proven themselves competent and hard-working — will still be subjected to presumptions that they just might not be, and that somehow, they (but not you) need to be reminded of the importance of hard-work and personal responsibility, lest they (but never you) revert to some less impressive group mean."



The president also spoke to black men about his own black father not stepping up and taking responsibility for his life. But Yvette Carnell states that while Barack Obama’s father wasn’t the most extraordinary role model, neither was his mother Ann Dunham. Carnell says that during many of the president’s early years, his mother often “dumped” him with his grandparents so she could live the life of a single woman with no kids.



"What criticism does Obama have for the mother that first dragged him to Indonesia, where he was relentlessly bullied, and then dumped him to live with his grandparents? Not much. Even though Obama professes to have adored his grandparents, he revealed during his Jeremiah Wright speech that they both harbored racist resentments. This was no life for a young Black man to live, being abandoned by his mother, left to be raised by racist whites."



Dr. Boyce Watkins also chimed in, arguing that President Obama’s message might resonate were it coming from someone who is in the trenches fighting against racism. But Dr. Watkins says that the president lacks the much-needed moral authority to criticize black men while refusing to support them in their fight against systematic obstacles that continue to keep black people oppressed.



"Here’s another memo for the president: You’re not just half black, you’re also half white. So, as you speak to African Americans and tell them to stop using racism as their excuse for achievement, I encourage you to give similar speeches to your white “brothers and sisters,” telling them the same things. The fact is that the Obama White House has a much more sympathetic ear when whites complain about 7 percent unemployment than it does when black Americans complain about 14% unemployment."

WHITE RACIST TERRORIZE BLACK OHIO FAMILIES


Jesus Take The Wheel: 16 Black Ohio Families Find Bibles With N-Word Written On Them In Front Of Their Homes!

Only a ignorant a$$hole thinks the Bible and racism go together…


16 Black Families In Ohio Find Bibles With Racist Langauge At Their Homes

Via ZanesvilleTimesRecorder



David Jones Jr. said he was excited to see a new Bible sitting on his front porch Monday morning. Then he looked inside and found what he describes as a “racial slur toward blacks,” written on the inside cover.

A total of 16 black residents along North Mulberry and Springmill Streets and Vale Avenue received the marred Bibles on Sunday, according to the Mansfield Police Department.

“At first I said good, because I can use another Bible, but when I opened it to see who it came from it just had a nasty statement in there,” Jones said. “I thought someone was saying it to me, but then I saw it on other porches, so I called police.”

A few doors down, Lillian Webb had the same initial reaction.

“I thought someone was trying to be funny, saying I need to read the Bible,” Webb said. “After I read (the slur), I thought, who would write that in a Bible?”


Across the street, the Friendly House received three Bibles, director Terry Conard said. Bibles also showed up at two vacant houses on either side of Webb.

Nine of the King James Holy Bibles were recovered Monday morning after Jones called in the complaint. Six more were found by police canvassing the area Wednesday. The same slur was “neatly” written in neon colors, according to victims.

Police are classifying the act as ethnic intimidation, meaning the racial slur was meant to threaten and intimidate residents, Capt. Ken Coontz said. Those responsible could face menacing charges, a fourth-degree misdemeanor. If tied to ethnic motivations, the charge could increase the offense to a third-degree misdemeanor, or up to 60 days in jail, he said.


The police are still searching for any clues that might help them find the person(s) responsible. We suppose this is better than a burning cross on your lawn, but it still has to be a little unsettling that this type of racism is still alive and kickin’ in 2013.

NATE LIVINGSTON PRESENTS HIS TOP 10 FACTS ABOUT CINCINNATI POLICE CHIEF HOLLYWOOD JAMES CRAIG

                                 Another Hollywood Actor Named James Craig


Outgoing Cincinnati Police Department Chief James E. Craig is a fake and a fraud. He's a bum who brought LAPD-style corruption to CPD. He got away with it because he learned Hollywood-style acting and public relations while out in LA, and the Cincinnati media is lazy and incompetent. (We're talking about the white and black media; mainstream and alternative media; traditional and new media.)



Here are our Top 10 facts about Craig that you may have forgotten or never known.

1. Craig "showed out" for the white man. He got into a nasty fight with our sister Cassandra Robinson of the Midwest Regional Black Family Reunion. Craig forced Ms. Robinson to cut the event back to one day, then told thousands of DNegroes to GET OUTTA TOWN BEFORE SUNDOWN. Why? Because white people wanted to watch a movie on Fountain Square and attend a sporting event and they didn't want to be bothered with your Black asses. Craig was happy to use his power as police chief to do whatever he could to make the white man, woman and child happy.


2. Craig bought new costumes for the cops. (This has nothing to do with reducing crime, but don't they look real nice?) In the last year, Craig's policies have led to an INCREASE in gun shootings. (Lord, please help the good people of Detroit!)


3. Craig went to Church, met with Black preachers, and passed out money to some Black people. Big damn deal.


4. Craig bought lots and lots of LaRosa's buddy passes and Girl Scout cookies. That may make Craig a swell guy, but it has absolutely no bearing on his failure to reduce crime. Can one of you Craig cheerleaders point to one of his initiatives that worked? Do you have any evidence...any proof...anything beside rhetoric and emotions? The Cincinnati Black Blog believes making kids smile is a great thing, but that's not how we evaluate a police chief.

5. When Orlando Smith -- a crazy fool working for the CPD -- shot and killed our good brother Dontez O'Neal in Avondale, numerous witnesses said Dontez was surrendering. Using that Hollywood training, Craig crafted a different story. He made believe Dontez shot at Orlando and Orlando was returning fire. The entire incident was captured on audio and videotape. But Craig and his boys in the CPD made the portion of the video that would've proved the truth magically disappear. Craig said it was some sort of temporary malfunction in the recording system. But the only missing portion is the part where Dontez said something like "PLEASE DON'T SHOOT I'M SURRENDERING," right before Orlando executed him.


6. When La Salle High School student Justin Brown conspired with 3 adult white males (David Corso, Derek McKinley, and Tony Wuestefeld) to rob our good young brother Dierres Lee (and possibly shoot and kill him) and Dierres was forced to STAND HIS GROUND and shoot Justin in the face (you can't shoot someone in the face if they are in a car with the windows rolled up and they are driving away), Craig, using one of those LAPD-style corruption tricks, let Justin's uncle, CPD Distrtict 3 commander, Cpt. Russell Neville, participate in the investigation. Justin's former coach and family friend, CPD Assistant Chief Paul Humphries, also participated. What happened to the counterfeit money? What happened to the equipment used to manufacture the counterfeit money? Craig says no counterfeit money was recovered. (The cops made it all go away.) Craig has said no laws were broken by Justin or his boys.


7. After Dontez was murdered, Craig made sure Dontez's boys got charged with murder even though we all know they didn't shoot Dontez, Orlando did. After Justin was shot, Craig worked with Justin's uncle and Justin's former coach to make sure no criminal charges were brought against Anthony Wuestefeld, Derek McKinley or David Corso. Craig said LaSalle and the white men had suffered enough.


8. Who can forget when the cops shot and killed Erica Collins in Mt. Airy for allegedly holding a knife. Before any investigation was done, Craig held a Hollywood-style press conference and told the investigators who work for him that the officer was entirely justified.

9. Craig gave Scotty Johnson's little sister, Julian Johnson, a promotion. Then he did nothing as CPD Sgt. Julie Johnson lied and got busted in lies. The good news is, Jules (as she's known on the radio) stopped stinking up the airwaves on WDBZ (The Buzz).


10. Craig never once corrected FOP president Kathy Herrell when she lied to the community and said the city wouldn't fire or layoff any cops. (Charlie Winburn and Christopher Smitherman aka The Sillyman also told this lie.)


Bottom Line. Many DNegros are running around saying Craig did a wonderful job. Others are excusing Iris Roley (Cincinnati's version of the infamous Nurse Rivers from the Tuskegee syphilis study) for, once again, bringing poison into the Black community. When you ask these people for facts, they become like a cheerleaders for the Cincinnati Bengals who can't provide any facts to support their opinion that the team is doing a great job. It's all about emotions.


The Cincinnati Black Blog is glad James Craig is leaving Cincinnati. We just hope the city gets a good forwarding address to provide to the U.S. Justice Department so they can bring Craig back to town to answer for his crimes.
