Go home Roger!!

The National Football League has now taken a nose dive backwards on the National Anthem stance. A short time ago Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner to what appeared to be a stand againt Donald Trump when Trump spoke out saying “Owners should Fire Players if they don’t stand.” Goodell seemed to back players, saying Trump’s comments were “divisive” and “demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.” Now just this week he issued another statement and it is very luke warm. Goodell started by saying “We live in a country that can feel very divided.” This is a shame he putt in “FEEL” very divided. This is the portion of White Privilege that is very Trifling because how in God’s green earth can this country “Feel” divided when clear stats show us Polic Brutality, The discrimination in the schools, and the high rate of Prison inmates being Black. Not to mention the constant reports being done that continues to highlight Racism. So for Goodell to talking about FEELING is a disgrace and it is disrespectful. Goodell only placed that memo because he is more concerned with the sponsors, yet how easily they forget, without the PLAYERS the owners don’t get paid and neither does the Commissioner.  There was a time when Players did NOT have to leave the locker room for the Anthem and it wasn’t until the NFL was paid 5.9Million that they decided to have players stand. See White Supremacy is all about Money and Power. So we have to consider Jerry Jones may have called Roger Goodell and gave him an earful. Let us also remember Jerry Jones, the one who is so patriotic was and have always been an owner of the Dallas Cowboys, his teams also stood in the locker room during the national anthem and the Cowboys are supposed to be AMERICA’S team!

So the NFL is in for a battle on this one. It has always been yelled, “When are Black people going to come together?” Now we are doing it and now The White Supremacist are say “no not like that!” I am convinced and have been convinced for several years about Racism existing. I call you my readers to be clear within your life because within this world you have to be aware of Racism it seeps through that “Flag.”

In addition, the kneeling was not even about the Flag in the first place and the Kneeling was a suggestion from the Army Ranger that had a meeting with Colin last year. So live in Truth.

Dove’s Trifling Ad! Then apologizes

As you might be aware, Dove made the choice to share this ad. However, we have to step back into the make up of this ad from the first point. The idea was discussed and agreed upon by the general committee, they selected the actors for the commerical, they gave the scripts to the actors for them to SEE what they were going to do and this is what we have. So they can save this apology because this is not the first time this has happened with this company. As a matter of fact this is the third or fourth time.

This reminds me of “nothing new under the sun” because our society started with Black faces to mock our culture and now it has expanded to this ignorance and I have to say those words because that is truly what it is. Yes, we can declare a boycott of their products; however, that is only part of the issue. More of the issue is this passive apology from a company that will not only KEEP its leadership in tact, however, they will be considered protected under “1st amendment” freedom of speech. We cannot accept this apology because this room full of the decision makers carried high qualify education and they made a clear choice to be hateful and trifling.

My call to action is to address every discriminatory action headon with not only  a boycott, also make noise by bring attention to it through social media, newspapers and be direct with the action.

How do you interact with the “Law”?

Many of us believe we know the law and can talk our way out of situations involving the Police. This is a direct challenge to us all because many of us are acting without wisdom. Wisdom would tell us only speak when spoke to and be direct without much long windedness. Now let me point out the elephant in the room, this still would not deter from being killed, which is a harsh truth; however, it does begin to built confidence within us when we meet foolishness and flithy with wisdom and righteous. The 5th Amendment tells us plain and clear, “You have the right to remain silent ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN AND WILL be used against you in the court of law.” That is powerful because if we rest on those words we will start to see that we are set up to fail. Who are the “we”? Those who opposition of the police and law. Yes, we can go into the shoulds and the coulds; however, I deal with Truth and Wisdom. I’ve been in several situations where I have been pressured to share information that I did not need to share and there was a benefit and not a benefit. This is a thin line because we understand, well many of us , that there is a connection between the officers, the courts and the prison. That is part of the reason why it has been such a hard struggle to convict many more cops for illegal use of force and the terrorism because you open the door and call one aspect corrupt them that will cycle back on the others and then America would have another issue to address. We must start to get online and with our Library’s and read your states Code of Law for Policing because each state can be different. We must start to watch over the police interactions, those of us who believe we are overseers. We must hold expungement fairs annually within our communities in order to remove those charges that the courts should have removed. We must organize a call line when one of our brothers or sisters are engaged with Police. We must teach interaction techniques such as always get the officers badge number and name, pull over in lighted areas. This is not fool proof; however, it will build up a community for us to properly engage.

How would an entire white community feel with an all-black police force policing their community?

I’d like to check the temperature and talk about the type of atmosphere we are living in. Throughout the entire country we see and hear about White cops shooting unarmed Black Men and Women at an terrorizing rate and no we don’t need to look at the data. The data will only show whether this has increased or decreased; however, we know it is happening. The serious question we need to consider is why haven’t we heard about Black cops shooting or killing White Men and Women. We know Black cops are being harrassed, weapons drawn on them, spit on, and disrespected. But why is it that Black cops haven’t pulled the trigger on these individuals? Do Black cops have more restraint and discipline than White cops? Or is it that if Black cops began killing White Men and Women White America would retailate in a manner that Black people aren’t willing? When we analyze Policing in America we can trace the start from Slavery with the Slave catchers, Jim Crow south and now. It is the same spirit just at different times. This is very serious because do we believe if Black cops started pulling the trigger because of “I fear for my life” would White America just March or protest? These are questions that need to be answered without any Intellectual Masturbation. We see many White cops policing neighborhoods they don’t live in and just play catch with our black children and call that community policing. There would never and has never been in the history of America an all Black police force policing an all white community. They allow Police Chiefs who are Black, but that remains under the umbrella of White Supremacy. Have you every wondered with all the jobs White America is open to why would they chose a Police Officer career? A license to Kill and use authority to terrorize? We need answers to these questions my Brothers and Sisters. My build on this topic is as I said before this would not be allowed. There would be immediate action and legislation to overrule this action. So if the that is such why do we allow an all White Police force to Police our communities? You pay their salary’s so speak up and address issues head on, demand change from your legislators and be specific.

I love you family, Peace!
