This whole black on black crime deflection is working on my last fucking nerve. Black people aren’t even allowed to have diversity in death. When white people are killed it could have been from a domestic dispute, gun violence, a car accident, anything. Whichever it is, it can end there. He got hit by a car. He was murdered. But when it’s black people it’s always, he got shot, BUT what about……..he was murdered, BUT how come we never talk about……

Isn’t it possible that just like every other community ours suffers from diverse issues that maybe we can fully discuss without using some of our other issues as deflections?

Clearly No.

Everything is all the same, including all crimes against us. ALL black people are criminals (So we might as well shoot this one). ALL black people are violent (So we might as well shoot this one). ALL black people are in gangs (So we might as well shoot this one).

There’s always a BUT.

All We Got Is All Of Us (with Combatjack and Premium Pete) ↘

Has anyone listened to this bullshit?! Charlemagne (from the breakfast club) is an utter disgrace. I’m so fucking tired of his ignorant “new black” ass. In this podcast he co signs ALL of the INCREDIBLY RACIST SHIT that his (white) friend Andrew Schultz (from guy code) says. (ie black people you need to get your shit together, racism is all mental, and black privilege is a thing) Charlemagne has disgusted me so much I don’t even know what to say. Combat Jack tried. He really did. But he was up against too much ignorance. For example… ( this is around the 1:33:00 mark….not word for word) 

Combat Jack: What are you gonna do for the black community Andrew?

Andrew Schultz: I’m gonna keep it real with the black community and say you need to take responsibility for your fucking actions and stop blaming the system.

Combat Jack: Do you know how divisive it is for a white man saying that to the black community?

Andrew Schultz: I am absolutely aware of that. 

Charlemagne: It’s the truth tho! If Schultz as a white man can’t tell black people to take personal responsibility, then we can’t say that to white people! (Schultz joins in on that last sentence too)

Combat Jack: I’m not telling white people how to act.

Andrew Schultz: So who are telling to stop shooting black kids? (verbatim) 

Combat Jack: Cops

Charlemagne: Who are you telling to stop profiling?

Combat Jack: Cops

Charlemagne: You can’t say that, it sounds too condescending when you say that because you’re black. (attempting to make the fucking dumbest, most nonsensical point ever)

Combat Jack: How?

Charlemagne: You’re not a cop. You’re not law enforcement.

Combat Jack: I’m a law abiding tax paying citizen. I can’t say that these public services I paid for shouldn’t be applied equally to my community?

Charlemagne: Sounds condescending man. (sarcastically. this fool really thinks he’s making a point) 

Combat Jack: You sound crazy 

Charlemagne: That’s how you sounded when you were talking to Schultz!

Here we have a black man with a huge voice in the lives of young black people dismissing systematic racism with his white friend for about an hour and a half. It is a disgrace that he lacks any ounce of empathy towards black people because he is too blinded by his lack of understanding of the differences between black on black crime, and the abuse of power as it pertains to authority figures. They are not the same thing. Charlemagne thinks that he is some sort of “new black” enlightened in some way. He thinks that he “defies” race. Reality is, he’s really just lost.

Please remember that being vegan is a privilege, and that judging anyone for not adopting such a lifestyle makes you a gaping asshole.

truuuueeeeeeee

And please remember that PETA is a bunch of fucking fuckers who kill animals in their shelter and have fat-shamed, amongst other offenses.

Painter painting in our time in shadows of yesterday

Painter, if you paint with love, paint me some black angels now
For all good blacks in heaven, painter show us that you care
