I have to be honest, I have never found myself in agreement with much of anything that Charles Barkley has ever had to say, especially when it comes to the subject of politics.  I’ve always thought that maybe he should stick to that which he knows best, because once he ventures outside that area of his ‘expertise’ it becomes pretty clear, pretty quickly that he’s nowhere near as smart as he thinks he is.

But it was on one of those rare occurrences that I recently did find myself in agreement with him, and it was when he was interviewed after Tuesday night’s Democrat debates that he happened to attend. It was when, during the interview, he slammed the Democrat Party, saying that the party has done little to elevate most blacks in America, and I agree.  And yet blacks continue to vote for Democrats.

While he had taken the time to be in the audience for this clown show of a debate, he apparently was not at all impressed by what he saw from the candidates taking part, going so far as to tell reporters that “every black person I know has always voted Democratic,” but most are “still poor” despite that support.  Ok, so what’s that tell you about every black person that he apparently knows?

Barkley slammed the Democrats for ignoring minorities, saying, “It’s an economic thing, and that’s what both parties have been neglecting, especially the Democratic Party.”  And he said, “Every black person I know has always voted Democratic, and with the exception of a few guys who can play sports, all those people are still poor.”  Ok, they’re still poor and yet they still vote for Democrats.  Duh?

And despite his complaining about the Democrat’s continuing failure, Barkley then proceeded to provide them with a certain amount of cover by making the idiotic claim that both parties “suck” at delivering for black voters.  He said, “I think all politicians take black folks for granted. They talk to black folks every four years, and that’s about it and then do nothing about it. Both parties suck in that aspect.”

And even after voicing his displeasure with the Democrats he then proceeded to do what every black person he knows must also do, he said it was of those candidates present that he was ‘leaning’ toward supporting Julian Castro or Pete Buttigieg.  So at the end of the day he’s really not all that much different from every other black who he knows, who will tend to vote for Democrats no matter what.

So first Barkley says the Democrats haven’t delivered for blacks and then, practically in the same breath, he says leaning towards one Democrat or another.  He says, “It’s an economic thing…”, but is either blindly ignorant of the current economic success for blacks or still covering for Democrat’s lack of success on economic issues.   Apparently it seems to be the latter, in which case he’s got nothing to bitch about.

Perhaps it’s now time for Mr. Barkley to make a choice.  Either he cares enough about black economic success to swallow his pride and vote for President Trump, and the Republicans next year, or simply admit that it doesn’t really matter and that he’s quite comfortable remaining there on the Democrat plantation.  Otherwise there’s really no difference between him and every other black person he knows.

The goal of Democrats has always been to keep blacks firmly on the Democrat plantation. So far, it’s been working very well!  The way to get ahead in America isn’t complicated.  You go to school. You don’t have children outside of marriage.  You practice personal responsibility.  And you save a portion of your earnings for the future and/or for a rainy day.  That’s the magic formula for success.

And the formula for failure? Well, that’s just as obvious and just as simple.  You get pregnant outside of marriage, you choose not to finish school, you go on welfare, you live in government housing, and you blame others for your own bad decisions and personal failures, and you become a taker not a maker.  This isn’t rocket science and yet those in the black community, Barkley’s community, act as if it is.

Democrat candidates come out every two years, they whine about how hard life is, promise all manner of pie in the sky, and then fail to deliver. They don’t deliver yet people looking for free table scraps keep voting for them because they fall for the Democrat song and dance.  It has been a Democrat inspired vicious cycle that has been taking place since the early 1960s.  And it shows no sign of letting up.

So as is usually the case even with ‘educated’ blacks, Barkley first makes a sane, provable statement then goes back to being stupid with his “both parties suck” comment.  Perhaps he should take the time to check out exactly what President Trump has done.  Government can never provide blacks with success but it can provide opportunity for blacks to EARN it, if they are actually interested in doing so.

That is where so many Democrat voters get buried, by believing the Democrat Party rhetoric that says, “You can’t make it in this world without a Democrat Party majority rule.” Then when the Democrat Party doesn’t come through with impossible promises they blame Republicans and ‘Whitey.’  Nothing regarding the plight of the black man is going to change until the black man, himself, does a little changing.

Well Charles it’s been this way for nearly 60 years now, for a few reasons. First, you bought the ridiculous notion that the party that hated blacks for over 150 years was now you best friend. They didn’t become your friend they just realized that a hand out works better to keep you in line than a raised hand. Second, your leadership in the black community is full of people who have sold their soul for a little power.

Lastly, there seems to be this idea that someone who is black can’t stray from thinking differently than the standard found on the left. If one does, they get branded a traitor, as being not black enough, an Uncle Tom, or many other more colorful names I can’t repeat here. That very idea that a minority has to think a specific way is the worst kind of stereotyping and is exactly what real racism is.

Democrats want a homogeneous minority population because ‘diversity’ of thought brings awareness of problems and allows for real solutions to be found. To put it simply, blacks have been played, they are victims of the greatest con job in history, and it seems not even the destruction of black families or the black community will snap them out of it and after 60 years of voting the same way they expect a different result.



Very little of what I hear these days, especially when it comes from those on the left, surprises me all that much.  But I must admit every once and a while I do come across something that causes me to take a step back and wonder just how it is that we, as a nation, have managed to fall so far.  I’ve never really considered myself a racist, because I believe what’s on the inside is far more important than what’s on the outside.  But I must admit that those within the black community do make it extremely difficult for the rest of us to offer up any sort of sympathy.  Most of the problems experienced by blacks are brought about by themselves.  And it only serves to make matters worse when those who could offer up some constructive criticism offer up, instead, nothing more than excuses for continuing bad behavior.

And while there are plenty of voices of reason there within the black community, sadly they seem far too few in number, and are rarely, if ever, actually listened to.  It is far more often than not that those voices of reason are simply drowned out by the voices of anarchy, lawlessness, and revolution simply because they are louder and can sound more appealing or even enticing.  Far more attention is paid to those who are far more interested in improving their own stature within the community than they are in what’s best for those within their own community.  And it’s rather unfortunate that the vast majority of blacks are either unable or unwilling to recognize these charlatans for what they really are.  Because if they were ever to do that their fortunes would substantially improve.

All of which brings me to Ms. Chanelle Helm.  Now if you are unfamiliar with this genius, Ms. Helm is a cofounder and lead organizer for the ‘Black Lives Matter’ (BLM) chapter in Louisville, Kentucky.  And it’s as such that she has some very specific, albeit somewhat racist, ideas regarding white people and even came up with a list of 10 requests that were published at ‘Leo Weekly’.  Helm said she’s been thinking about what should change in America and the voice inside her head sounded like “that Southern, black grandmama voice.”  Her list could be summed up like this: Dear white people, you should give away your home and/or property to a black or brown family in need.  She even goes as far as to say whites need to reprioritize their monthly budgets to include donations to blacks so they can purchase land.

So without further ado, here are the first six items on her list:

  1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.
  2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.
  3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.
  4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.
  5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.
  6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.

The last four descend into profanity and racism, not to mention illiteracy, so you will simply have to consider the source.  This is also the point at which all hope for taking this even remotely seriously goes completely out the window.  Helm thinks nosy white women should get their racist coworkers and bosses fired and if need be, use physical violence to fight white supremacy:

  1. White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the fuck they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.
  2. Backing up No. 7, this should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ dick-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.
  3. OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.
  4. Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.

In a sense I think Ms. Helm represents much of what’s wrong within the black community today.  You see she thinks that black people shouldn’t be expected to work for those things they want, they should, instead, simply be provided with all manner of freebies and all paid for by whitey.  Now I realize that to expect blacks to actually work for a living and to also take some level of responsibility for their lives opens oneself up to being called a racist.  And while I am not a racist, what I am is someone who has become rather fed up with sending off more and more of my hard earned money to the government only to then watch as it handed over to those who view themselves as being above having to work for a living.  If it’s good enough for me, it should be good enough for them as well.

And in all honesty I think that Ms. Helm is, in reality, likely to be someone who is simply trying make a name for herself!  But there’s no doubt that she’s a racist.  I’ve always found it a bit odd whenever I hear blacks make the claim that they can’t possibly be racist because they’re black.  But I have to say, some of the most racist people I’ve ever met are nearly always black.  My descendants came to this country after slavery came to an end, so neither I nor they had anything to do with it.  I have worked hard my entire life, and I spent over 20 years in the military.  And as far as I’m concerned the United States is the BEST country in the world and I consider myself blessed to live here.  If she had any brains, and genuinely cared about black folks, she’d recognize that as well.

However, the bottom line here is that the left has become quite adept, over the years, at using idiots like Ms. Helm as they go about their continuing effort to create and foment all manner of unrest and seek new and more effective ways to further divide the people of this country which they view as being a crucial political tactic and one that results in making it much easier for them to accomplish their rather sinister goals.  These useful idiots seek to either completely erase or, failing to accomplish that, thoroughly rewrite important chapters of our history and to alter our culture to the point where it would be nearly unrecognizable to past generations.  It is all part of the master plan to replace our government with that ever elusive Marxist utopia that they have been chasing now for decades.

But one thing I actually do tend to agree with, and is something I hear those like Ms. Helm talking about quite frequently, is the concept of reparations.  But I have a slightly different take on the topic than does she and others like her.  I call it ‘reverse reparations’.  Because, you see, it’s to my way of thinking that all those millions of freeloaders out there who have been sponging off the taxpayers for decades, now owe those same U.S. taxpayers roughly $20 Trillion!  And that not just some arbitrary amount, that would be the amount that has been spent over the last 50 years in the effort to erase poverty.  You know those folks who while identified as living in poverty still own 2 color TVs, a couple of cars, smoke cigarettes, drink booze and pay for strippers all while using other people’s money.

There has been for many years now this cockamamie sense of entitlement that becomes ingrained in some almost instantaneously upon leaving the womb, and it has got to come to an end.  Our welfare system created this mess.  Entitlements only cause harm to everyone.  The people paying for them get robbed, and the people on the receiving end get taught that they don’t need a work ethic.  And let’s be real, blacks could dispossess every affluent white person of their property and distribute it to impoverished or struggling black people and within 20 years or less, those same white people would be affluent again, and the black people would be impoverished again.  Transferring wealth doesn’t create success.  Only education and hard work can increase the odds of one becoming a bona fide success in America.

This ‘Black Lives Matter’ mentality as exhibited by Ms. Helm, is really nothing more than yet another dead end for blacks.  Nothing beats a good education and a solid work ethic to create the best opportunity for success.  People who complain about Trump’s father giving him everything miss the point. The best thing Trump’s father did was to teach his son about business, not give him money to begin his business.  Without those skills a person would quickly lose their inheritance and never be able to regain it.  On the other hand, someone who learns a skill, that person will be able to start from nothing and continue to move up the ladder.  As they take risks, they may slip along the way but with perseverance and hard work to go along with those skills, will be able to recover and continue climbing.

That process becomes more difficult when there is nobody to help a child learn a skill or a business, either at home or at school.  Our schools don’t even bother teaching kids how to balance a checkbook let alone teach a skills or the habits that will help create a self-sufficient adult.  Why is that?  Because ‘progressives’ have run the schools for the last half century.  They teach black kids that they will have to work twice as hard to get half as far, that society is against them and that half the country is racist.  If you were taught that in lieu of how to become a responsible adult, would you bother trying in school and take it upon yourself to learn a skill or would you be more likely to give up, drop out, and try to destroy society?  Our society is reaping the results of ‘progressive’ ideology with no plan B in sight.

Look, it’s never a good idea to create a sense of entitlement in humans, it’s a bad idea right from the start.  Because there is no respect or real appreciation for those things that come too easily.  Just look at the people who get everything for ‘free’. For example, when was the last time you saw public housing?  There is nothing wrong with a little tough love!  In America today the opportunities out there to become successful are limitless.  One need only to get off the couch, get off welfare, make it their everyday job to FIND A JOB and then plan for their future accordingly.  The opportunities are there, you just have to want it bad enough.  But it’s now been made so easy to do nothing and to get paid for it that so many people, and not just blacks, now seem genetically predisposed to being lazy.




Well, it would appear that there are stupid people and then there are REALLY stupid people.  And one of those REALLY stupid people is a guy by the name of Aaron Goggans.  Mr. Goggans is, or so I’m told, the core organizer of Black Lives Matter, DC, and it’s according to Mr. Goggans that black-on-black crime is nothing more than a myth.  At least that’s what he told CNN’s Carol Costello during an appearance on the network this past Thursday.  So yes, he’s REALLY stupid!

It was in responding to a video that former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis had posted earlier in the week in which he called for removing guns from the streets as a key part of solving the problem of black-on-black crime, that Mr. Goggans made his rather idiotic comments.  Goggans said, “It’s important to talk about the myth of black-on-black crime as just that — a myth.”  And he added, “Any Google search of the term comes up with a lot of different articles.”

“So, Ray Lewis is wrong?” interjected Costello.  To which this genius Goggans responded that “Ray Lewis is talking about a lot of myths and preconceptions about what the [Black Lives Matter] movement is.  He went on to say, “Intercommunity crime happens in all communities across the country, and it is a problem that the movement of Black Lives is focusing on,” he added. “The movement of black lives is also focusing on state sanctioned violence. It’s a different thing.”

And it was then this moron said, “It’s not just a few white cops killing a few unarmed black men. It’s actually the state systematically creating up systems that are killing black people, both black women, black children, black queer, black men, black trans and black gender non-conforming folks.”  Huh?  You know, these people just never cease to amaze me, just when I think I’ve heard all the crazy shit I could ever here, along comes a guy like Mr. Goggans to prove me wrong.

But look, I think we are all able to recognize the fact that Barry and the Democrat Party DEPEND, and quite substantially, on stupid people in order to remain in power.  I once thought that because of such things as the fact that black unemployment remains high that blacks would eventually start to wise up?  But that hasn’t been the case, it’s almost as if they would rather not work, preferring to simply live off the rest of us.  That’s not being racist, that’s just how it seems.

People like this guy remind me of those idiots who do stupid crap behind on-scene reporters. And it’s just like those morons, this moron gets on TV and sounds like the complete imbecile that he so very obviously is. The BLM is nothing but a modern day minstrel show which is designed to do exactly what Goggans is doing, make black people look and sound foolish. As if many of them needed any help in that area.  It would seem we have a real life ‘Stepin Fetchit’ in our midst.



Blacks 09

As happens at the end of every month, we’ve once again been told the employment situation in this country is the best it’s been in years.  And all thanks to that economic genius, Barack Hussein Obama.  If only it were so.  So, earlier today we were told that even though the economy supposedly added jobs and the national unemployment rate remained relatively unchanged, the Black unemployment rate still sat at being more than twice as high as the White unemployment rate and nearly double the national unemployment rate.  For March the unemployment rate among Blacks was said to be 9.0 percent while among whites it supposed to be 4.3 percent.

And in keeping with the longer-term trend, the unemployment rate among teens was said to be triple the national unemployment rate with teenagers aged 16-19 experiencing an unemployment rate of nearly 16 percent. We were told that white teens had an unemployment rate of 13.9 percent while black teen unemployment was 25.3 percent and Hispanic teens had an unemployment rate of 15.6 percent. But look, can we all agree that these supposed unemployment numbers that come from the government at the end of every month are little more than examples of what are, in all likelihood, nothing more than the purest form of government fiction?

These numbers on which the health and wellbeing of our economy are supposed based are, and have been for the last seven years, completely bogus and will remain so until such time as those who have forever left the work force out of frustration are finally once again counted among those who comprise the unemployed.  Regarding the issue of black unemployment, as an example fewer than 50% of Detroit’s black students finish high school and over 35% of young black men in that city have arrest/prison records. As an employer, how anxious would one be to hire either?  Studies have shown, over and over, that it has nothing to do with race discrimination.

So yeah, it’s all because of their skin color and not their language, education, dress, hygiene, work history, or criminal record.  There are plenty of people of all races that are as a lazy as pet pigs and will ride the unemployment horse until it finally drops dead. They simply don’t see any need to work as long as they’re getting a nice fat check covered by their friendly neighborhood taxpayers. They will contact employers with no intent of actually working. They work the system like the able bodied people that feign illness to qualify for disability benefits. It is a broken system and there are those who are expert at manipulating that system.

And if we can put all of the idiotic political correctness aside, there are very definable real life reasons for these figures.  And my message to Black America is one that says it’s going to be up to you to turn these figures around because it’s only you who can fix them.  What’s going to be required is for you to look in the mirror and then start at the ground floor of the appalling culture which you have created and then begin to work your way up.  Whitey did not do it you, you did it to yourself.  You need to come to your senses, politically speaking, and start voting for those who see the importance of making it possible for citizens to become less dependent on government.

Black America, with much assistance coming from the Democrat Party, created the pig wallow, but the time has now come to drain the swamp and create a new, more responsible society and abandon the hyphenated values, and commit to becoming a supporter of American values. We have tried it your way in the pig sty and it simply doesn’t work, so try joining the United States of America for a change.  Heck even the Illegals get that message and are surpassing Black America and their broken failed society that they want to blame on everyone else except Black America who is responsible for what has become a failed society by its own destructive hand.

The bottom line here is that the time has now come to grow up and take responsibility for the disaster that black culture has become. The sad truth is that blacks have been convinced into becoming their own worst enemies.  They continue to support a political party that does nothing more than to make allowances for their bad behavior.  Blacks should expect nothing to change for the better as long as they refuse to face the reality of what are essentially their own homegrown problems. Their fate as a people lies in their own hands, not with a political party that does little more than to make empty promises in exchange for their votes.
