I'm sorry, but I hate hypocrites


I have informed the board's owner, Shawna, in every forum I can, of the Catfish defiling a black woman whom he doesn't know and who doesn't know him. By virtue of her NOT knowing the troll/Catfish, she can't defend herself against his theft of her picture and identity. I'd thought Shawna would have the black love/consciousness to do that for her, but it is not to be.

At any rate, I've posted the Catfish/troll's :uglyazzwoman: rantings in several sites in the Board Forum. If she doesn't mind HER name being attached to bottom feeder's b.s., so be it. Although I truly wanted to put the Catfish leavings in a post that I know she'd open up and read, well, there's only one and it's off-limits. So I went to the Board Forum - HER forum.

Anyhoo, although Jeneen couldn't care less about Kadijah White (who I'm almost positive never marched with Dr. King), I'm pretty sure she cares about her own self. And, since I'm neither fearful nor so hypocritical as to ignore the 900 lb. CATFISH in the room, I will no doubt be "escorted to the door" once she sees those copy & paste jobs. Not that I care (obviously!) - other than blogs, and minus the 90% new threads I start(ed) up, this MB is dead.

Thus, in light of the above, NOT auf weidersehen, but "adios." (look 'em up - there's a diff ...lol)

P .S.

Now 'bye! :whistle:


(oh, and for anyone who has anything "smart" to say about it? Tell it to your creature, the Catfish/troll) :eyebrow:

Those who forget the lessons of history are condemned to repeat them.... or... Never say 'never'


Baby Boomers came of age in a time of "Great Men, Unsung Great Women and Great Ideas." My generation grew up in a time ofgreat expectations for the possibilities of our lives.

The children of Baby Boomers, Generation X, grew up with the fallout of our efforts, i.e., assassination of the best and brightest, incarceration of the best and most courageous, the elevation of Uncle Toms like Clarence Thomas to high public office, like Assata Shakur, run out of the country, like Huey P. Newton, retrogression tocriminality and ultimately, suicide by proxy, or like many famous white Boomers, outright suicide.

Growing up with a different reality, children of ALL generations rebel against the values and attitudes of their parents. Baby Boomers rebelled against the fearfulness and subservience of their parents and leapt into the fray on faith. Rebelling against optimism and the promise for a better life vision of their Baby Boomer parents, amid the ruins of the former bright, shining beacon of the Civil Rights Movement, Generation X grew up negative and nihilistic.

I understand their resistance to hope. I understand their churlish attitude toward the expression of black unity in the 1960's/70's. But while I understand their 'jaded' attitude toward the government, their embrace of individuality,I didn't countenance "I got mine; you get yours" back in the day, nor do I countenance "me, me, me! (I'll) get rich or die trying!"No man (or woman) is greater than his/her circumstance.... in the case of black people, the circumstance of our birth. Individualistic,nihilisticattitudes arecounterproductive to black progress, black empowerment and our ability to survive in a world that fears us.

All of the above to say I get so very weary of wading in the stagnant waters of Gen X aspirations (their hopelessness reserved for the race; for themselves, they're hung ho!)Unfortunately, it is mainly Gen X and Baby Boomers who frequent MBs. Millennials, the young blacks I have always had as my 'target audience', are now found on the wholly self-congratulatory, insular and really quite trivial social media of twitter, Instagram, etc.

Still, my idea has always been a shotgun approach. Put knowledge out there and see whom it hits. So, after analyzing who is on MBs and what are their agendas.... oh! and keeping it real, the desire to converse with beings other than the talking dead.... I've concluded that in addition to slogging around in the muddy thoughts of Gen Xers, laying out my ideals before intelligent, informed and rational Boomers - or those on the 'cusp' ...lol - is an imperative 'antidote.'

And I do mean 'intelligent.' I do mean 'informed.' The board I most frequent has some black boomers, but mostly Gen X, whose whole program it seems, is to discredit consciousness amongst black people. Their appeal is negative, targeting the confused, and by virtue of NOT knowingOurStory,the disaffected. They are the blacks Dr. King described as being aggressively ignorant, these "Strawman" arguers. Theypromote the barely literate/barely conscious conspiracy theorists as the prototype of those of us who seek black self-determination, who are unafraid to call a spade a spade -- and can back up every ONE of our words. These are the people who reserve the fallibility of "I'm just human" for themselves while demanding perfection from the conscious.

So never say 'never'? Not when a luta continua. Not when the lowest of the low, the do nothing/'cutesy' b.s. spouting of the race are busy tapping their dysfunction and fear (love?) of YT as the salvation of black people across the Net. I'm over my disappointment. I'm ready to jump back into the fray.

....unlike some 'can't win/don't try' Gen Xers who love dem some white folk-- and will throw shade on conscious black people (as well as under the bus and to the curb) to makeracist whites feel 'welcome' in a black place.

I went to bible study this evening. The most interesting thing happened. First off, know that I attend a "touchy-feely" church. When I first started there, I was taken aback by "strangers" wanting to hug me after service. I've grown used to it over the years (usually 2 or 3 hugs), so I was kind of surprised when after bible study tonight, I was 'inundated' with hugs. I had to have hugged 6 people before I left. Thing is, they were heartfelt. Which led to a kind of conundrum. While the hugs were, as I said, heartfelt (it's not a "rule" ...lol), after the 4th or 5th one, I began to feel like I was 'losing' myself. I felt as if I were 'merging' into the other, both friends and the couple strangers who wanted me to hug them. It was all very weird. Perhaps I'm losing my 'edge?'

IDK. I just had the strangest impression that it was.... :ummm: no longer "I" but "we?" It wasn't like other times (the BEST ones!) where people not only lined up to hug me (usually 4 or 5), and I felt, well, love in their hugs. This time, these hugs, well, I guess it was "we" rather "I," thus I not so much lost myself (my 'ego'?) as became ONE with the church "body."

Speaking of 'hugs'.....


Everyone who is a regular church-goer has a story about "deacons." Mine starts with me joining a 4 person prayer group during a pause in services. One of our married deacons was in it (2 women, 2 men). Everyone was praying, rather glibly I thought (hey! I don't leave my mind at home when I go to church, ok?). Anyhoo, as I abhor hypocrites, when it came to my turn to say a few words, I was 'thoughtful' about my words - as opposed to everyone rattling off prayers and praises as if they had memorized them. I noticed the deacon start (is she "new?" ...lol), but staying true to myself and my faith, refused to give to my mind, diarrhea praises.

Anyhoo, once the pastor gave the signal that the pause for group prayer was over and all had gone back to their seats, everyone got up and started "hugging" each other. To my dismay, I saw the deacon practically pushing people aside to get to me (pastor saw it too. There was a wry twist to his mouth when he realized deacon had 'targeted' me). Well, not to kill the spirit of brotherhood of the congregation - there were at least 800 people at that service - I allowed him to hug me..... until his hug became bear-like and "intimate." Cringing inside, I smiled weakly and pushed against him (the man is big AND tall), then turned quickly and almost ran to my seat.

A couple weeks more of unwanted attention and I asked my boo to come to church with me (he's Catholic, ok?). Afterward, I had no more problems with whore mongerer 'deacon.'

Yesterday, neighbor knocked on my door and told me my garage door was open. I'm thinking, 'what?' Went to garage, door was open like 2 feet from the ground. The day before, I had started to put my car into the garage, then changed my mind. Having opened the door, I pushed the remote to close it (I had groceries and I have to walk almost twice as far from the garage to my back door as from the street to my front door), then parked in front of my house.

Anyhoo, once I saw the garage door was open about 2 feet from the ground, I got apprehensive. But it was all good. My lawn mower and leaf blower, as well as an electric radiator I bought a couple weeks ago, were still there.

That was yesterday. Today ANOTHER neighbor knocks on the door - 'your garage door is open.' Now I'm really WTF??? Go to the back, look, and this time the door is WIDE OPEN, to the top. No lawn mower. No leaf blower. No electric radiator. Totally empty. **sigh**

I've been thinking about 'treating' the 8th grade class at my neighborhood school to a day at the movies, to see "Hidden Figures," prolly the most inspirational movie to come along in a while (certainly a WELCOME respite from all the "blacks as slaves" movies Hollywierd is so fond of putting out :sarcastic: ). I already called the theater for some kind of rate (hopefully, $5 a head) and was awaiting their reply before making the offer to the principal. Having to replace all that stolen stuff, not so sure anymore.....

**sigh** It ain't easy being black. It's even harder living around "some" black people. Certainly not cheap.

Just come back from talking to the principal at my local elementary school. Yep. Decided not to let one "monkey" rain on my good nation-building intentions (so they're not the 'usual' quotes - so sue me!). Went slipping and sliding to the school (the streets here are a sheet of ice), asked for the principal and opened my pitch with: "I want to take your 8th graders to the movies." (lol)

To make a long story short, turns out I'm not the only one impressed with "Hidden Figures." Principal (lovely woman) told me that her 5th through 8th graders are already scheduled to see the movie next week. Some mentoring program, whateva, received a grant from somebody to see the movie. So the students are all going to the theater for free, plus the bus is free, AND they will all get popcorn and a soda pop.... for free.

I was just going to pay for their tickets and, if the school didn't throw in transportation, I'd pay for a bus. But the snacks would be on the kids. :blush: . Oh! And I told the principal to not tell anyone of my offer. Everyone knows I live alone and I don't want anybody breaking into my house because they think I have "money."

Like I said in the previous post - it ain't easy being black.
