Colin Kaepernick: Nike, The NFL & Jay-Z


Song – Marvin Gaye ~ “What’s Going On”

You know the name and the controversy. I knew not jumping on this particular story on the onset of his movement, would yield more for me to cover after we’ve seen the shit play out over the airwaves from last year till now. Who is this Hispanic-looking Brother with an Irish name? Colin Kaepernick is the bi-racial child of a blond-haired blue-eyed Mother & African-American Father and he’s a football athlete who plays for the San Francisco 49ers. With the on-going police brutality against “Black” Men & Women everywhere in America, him taking it upon himself making a striking political statement at NFL games by taking a knee during the singing of the American anthem, is in the praise-worthy spirit of deceased Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This move drew angry criticism from a segment of the population that were “White” (racist or not) who didn’t think the NFL was the right platform to protest urban bigotry & that it showed disrespect to the flag and The Nation. Well…. Other attacks on the issue has been done before by Newscasters, Youtubers, The Common Person on the street, etc. Kaepernick is the only Football Player to put a spotlight on the problem by using the Sports Industry. The only other pivotal moment in history was the 1968 Olympics when 1st & 3rd place medalists, (Tommie Smith, Gold & John Carlos, Bronze) dark-skinned track & field athletes playing for the United States, went on the Olympic stand proudly wearing there medals, through up the Black Power fist during the American anthem for the World to see protesting in the struggle for the same racist persecutions going on at the time in America where The Black Panthers took a political stand opposing the Governments treatment of us. Admidst those medalists was the solitary 2nd place winner from Australia, Silver-Medalist, Peter Norman. People don’t know much of him, since he’s not the primary focus in that iconic photo, but he too as a “White Man” was involved in the protest in his humble way, because he decided to wear the Olympic Project for Human Rights (OPHR) badge in support which was contoversial, and ofcourse even though he was already a medalist, Australia didn’t use him again because of it for the next Olympics, but he’s also noted in history for taken that stand at the time. THEY had to, and Kaepernick had to. When you’re “BLACK” and you’re living it everyday, something is wrong if you’re not protesting in some way. Yes, the move drew anger from President Trump and Kap got fired. He filed a lawsuit against the NFL because after all, it IS his Constitutional right to make an expression like that. The suit yielded some pay, but not to great satisfaction, he did not get his job back. So as time went on, Sports giant Nike, entered the fray embracing Kap, and that move upset those same people who don’t like what he did. Nike stocks dropped for a while, but they kept Kaepernick & he looked and sounded great in those print and televised ads. Soon, the minds of people changed back in favor of Nike & the sales happened. And as we went on again in life, another change happened where recently Rapper Jay-Z made the comment that ‘it’s time to move beyond kneeling’ and this drew much criticism. It was taken as a diss, but the comment is subject to interpretation. Do we keep marching & kneeling as an oppressed people? That’s how many movements start before it gets physical. What he did was effective enough to draw attention to the issue. Kaepernick’s motives have been criticized by some who feel he’s just looking for attention, he wasn’t a great enough athlete and they were going to cut him, so he did that move as a tactic. Well, that’s all speculation. He got fired anyway, the point is, he inspired other NFL players to take the knee with him and The Brother, showed where he stands politically, rocking his fro. So what now? Well….., the NFL has Jay-Z with them as a part Owner and some see that as a betrayal, but Jay-Z is another strong Black Brother who declared he wants Kaepernick re-hired. Whether he has the power or not to make that happen remains to be seen, the point is, they are trying to clear up a problem. The NFL has seen a steady decline over the years in ratings & interest. They’ve lost their heyday. Just trying to pick the right Halftime performer to hold the audience & hope everything goes right is a daunting task. When they chose Adam Levine last time, Cardi B, like Rihanna stood with Kap and chose not to perform the song they did together, ‘A Girl Like You’. Adam Levine & his band Maroon 5, should NOT have taken the job, but he thought the controversy was good for him, not realizing he was further exposing himself. Months before that on ‘The Voice’, he fucked over DeAndre Nico, a strong soulful Black Contender on his team for some lesser singer (Reagan Strange), a young white female he knew personally, who was nearly voted off the prior week, who got voted off the competition the next week BECAUSE, America didn’t like that, and the fiasco was all over social media . So HIM, opposing Kap, and doing a lame performance at the Half-time show, also hurt the NFL. Until they properly solve this issue with Kap, their general approval will continue to drop.

The Mueller Report: Donald, Trumps The Feds

Song – Billy Joel ~ ‘An Innocent Man’

Ferrelux Quote: Laesa Majestas ~ The Crime Of High Treason, 7/15/2019

Prior to becoming POTUS 45, then running candidate, Real Estate Mogul Donald Trump, among other things, was suspected of treason with Russia. And like the sex scandal allegations from women, the accusations of working with Russian President Vladimir Putin went nowhere, but people wouldn’t let it go. So now over the past several weeks, we heard on National TV, the results of a full blown FBI investigation, when Mueller finally spoke. He said something I actually agree with, ‘the report speaks for itself’. He then resigned, removing himself from further involvement with the case. I agree with that move too. He’s my kind of guy, very relatable. There is no reason for him to be on it still, BUT people can’t get that, and want him still on the shit, pushing for him to testify, which the date got delayed a week, and is now scheduled for Wednesday July 24th 2019. Well……. It’s a time to pull a Comey, another FBI agent who received some praise and criticism for his handling of the case. When you put someone up to testify……hmmmm, there is no telling where that might go. What I keep hearing is ‘evidence’; of something, that’s not undeniable ‘proof’ though. I agreed with The Donald, running to hire Ex-NYC Mayor, Rudolph Giuliani. That was smart. You need an expert to deal with another mind blowing expert. When you have The Feds on you like that, and you’re just a Businessman they’re handling like a Gangster, you need Rudy. Now he was an Italian Prosecutor, New York City hired back in the day to clean up the streets from ‘La Cosa Nostra’, and he was phenomenal in doing so. To tackle somebody like Mueller who also took down Mobsters galore and other crime syndicates, a match like Rudy was the kind of battle for the Pundits to watch. Many were expecting the demise of Trump, but when you have an excellent legal team that know what to do & say with the legal tactics, you can battle a Mueller; that’s why he can only safely say there is ‘evidence’. It doesn’t matter what you think or feel. If we are strictly going by The Law here, you can’t conclusively prove anything. All that’s necessary for that to work in favor of Trump, is if all Parties involved don’t say or do anything that can be used against them in the Court of Law. Obviously whatever was said or done before that looked like something, was argued or interpreted in a way that was not enough to convict. Trump’s Presidential status exempts him under the current law from the FBI’s ability to bring him to justice, but Mueller turned the findings over to the Jurisdiction of the House of Representatives. The Speaker of The House, Nancy Pelosi, at the time said publicly that The Republican controlled Senate would move to block The Hearing. So they can’t do shit. Trump is right to say he’s vindicated, and that there is no Russian collusion to get him elected, no treason selling the country out because if you had a real case here, I would have been hearing from the development of the case, something solid. When you look back at these old FBI Files, Cold Cases TV shows I still enjoy watching, you can tell when a case can go somewhere. I agreed when Comey said to the effect, if you are an Agent looking at something, you should be able to tell in 30 days whether something is a case or not, otherwise you are incompetent. He’s right. I knew that, did you know that? You should. And where do we get that number from,……. government correspondences of course, sometimes it takes 90 or 180 days. So, it shouldn’t be taking several years building a report of nonsense following a person’s daily life, routine, personal struggles, life milestones and still have no case, especially after all the information gathering, the person is clean and YOU the Agent look like what you are, a pervert, trouble-maker, bigot, etc., mis-using your authority interfering with a decent human being. Can Trump claim this? Well, when did the investigation actually start? At the Hearing, all kinds of questions can be asked, and when you ask the right ones……..Ooooh!!! Maybe the report was effectively written in a way that could convict, but when you look at the timing of everything, one can’t help but wonder if the way the current politics is turning, may have influenced decisions in re-writing that report. I mean they may have been on board with getting rid of Trump until all these radical Democrats are looking to run for President now and a good portion of them are Ethnic Minorities, SCARY! Listen to some of their rhetoric, even the lesser Ones in Office, not running supporting them. Why, many Law Enforcement personnel are Republicans with stickers supporting Trump on their civilian vehicles. When you’re handling a case, as Comey was accused of using bad timing with the case hurting Hilary Clinton’s rise to the Presidency when he chose to make his announcement, how is any of that different now with Mueller? Look at those Democrats. Although I like him, you don’t want DeBlasio up there, radical messages are strong. He was a man of the 60s. If he wins, you know he might turn the respectable luxury Trump Hotels into welfare homeless shelters like the ones you see in your neighborhood so bums might be living better than you. Oh and another favorite, Kamala Harris, perceived as a strong angry Black Woman who’ll be more concerned about minority race issues and policies and not be relatable to persons outside of that. The great Corey Booker, promising to deliver the same thing in some people’s minds. Oh and Author Marianne Williamson, the one I call The Dreamer; they’re laughing at her but one time many decades ago, that inspirational stuff coming on your airwaves in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and almost the 90s, gave hope. It just isn’t realistic now. People are too jaded and lost that connection. And that Asian business guy Mr. Yang wants to dole out government money of $1000 every month to Americans to help get their lives together. Not a bad idea, but there are forces at work in this hateful economy that have a wicked agenda against the struggling poor working class and have no intention on granting any sort stimulus package that would have made a difference in your life. And the other Candidates well, you might know something I don’t. So when you are handling a case, all that could play a role in your decision to incriminate someone because a chess game is at play here. You get rid of Trump and his corrupt regime, you might let in something worse. I’m not saying it would be because I’m not a big fan of Trump, but I’ve studied American politics, even way back in school days from Junior High to College Graduate, my grades were always high in Civics & related courses. This is not a time right now to be running games with your politics. The attack on Trump should have happened before he became President. That was when legal clauses should have been made to block him. As fucked up as he is, it’s better leaving him there and control the situation. Right now the United States looks like a fool, and the best thing you can do NOW is clip the Circus for good. Stop the buffoonery plaguing your current politics. You seem like a Third World country now. I don’t know what Mueller is going to say, but his words most likely would be chosen wisely. The fate of the country could be destined from that case. If Trump remains intact, the wind of Fortune might sway where America might be great again, but if a move to Impeach comes from this, Americans might be plunged into chaos with political experiments that may not work well, messing with the lives of people when things should just be kept simple. What could come of it in the long run is stark poverty and civil war. I’m hearing all kinds of what if, and maybe we should do this, from all these Democratic Newbies and we are no longer in a stable time as the Wealthiest & most Powerful Nation, the European Union can challenge that. The Euro & British Pound are worth more than an American dollar. It’s sad that Ex-NYC Mayor Bloomberg isn’t running (yet). He’s a real Businessman richer than Trump. All he needs is a team of Old-Timers who know politics and young Wizards to run this. You’ve got to restore Commerce. Get back your AAA+ global credit rating from China. Work on Trading, Domestic Infra-structure and social promotion programs that circulate money and opportunity so people can be where they should be, and do political negotiations with developing nations who really need an alliance with you and protection. There are people right here in your country that don’t like you, some of which you’re importing and supporting, and you Americans are catching a fool of yourselves. You need to study the playbook from 2 centuries ago. You’re about to get conquered if you’re not careful. So, back to the case, I’m not feeling the current Democratic Candidates, so lately I’m looking at an orange-faced Businessman with blond hair, moving to & fro on my screen, whose team have been able to deliver him from political persecution and still doing so, and he’s going around making history doing what the fuck he wants holding the country in a panic, well……. Maybe HE’S The Man. Whatever talisman he’s holding is working, which means this whole episode in American history may not be a bad thing. It’s possible that his presence on the American throne could be fortuitous, as chaotic as it seems. Something is about to strike and maybe his attitude and sensibilities is what’s necessary to steer the course of history towards something. Just speculation. We’ll see.

Ex-VP, Joe Biden’s Mistake Not To Assume Power Then

Song – Rick Derringer ~ ‘Real American’

Seditio Civium Hostium Est Occasio ~||~ Sedition of the Citizens is an Opportunity for the Enemy  (Ferrelux.com Latin Quote)

OMG, why run now? So my criticism goes all the way back to when Barack Obama ran for Presidency in 2010 and chose then Senator, Joe Biden as his Vice President. At the time, my instincts found that choice questionable. I was expecting someone that made more sense, and not Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. And since people were celebrating it as a successful ticket, I kept my fingers crossed and hoped no problem came of it. Race-Readers were seeing Obama’s move in choosing Biden as a cover, since it would calm down racial tensions if they saw a white male there with him. Somewhere in my head I didn’t think he needed him. Now look, about 6-8 years towards the end of the Obama Administration, I’m seeing my suspicions about Biden were right. The time to run for President was right under Barack to win the succession of power. That’s how it’s done. Only somebody better at the time could beat you. When I saw this ridiculous campaign going along to setup Hillary as the 2016 Candidate, THAT was questionable. It wasn’t necessary. She was there before. That was a problem for many Voters. And before you say, the Russians would have made Trump win anyway, entertain this, were they interfering before? When they saw a circus in your politics and thought about it, THAT was an opportunity to fuck with it. Had the system went the way it should, Russian interference wouldn’t have happened. I blame Joe Biden for all that went wrong and still, with our politics now. His excuse at the time was his dead son, personal/familial issues and so on. Hmmm……. In ancient times if you were Caesar, a Greek Ruler, Pharoah, Asian Emperor, or other Leader, and you were dealing with treachery all around you and death of those close to you, you got your act together and fight back and maintain your kingdom. So I’m thinking the real reason here is to separate himself from Obama and his policies, especially when he went a few weeks ago to tell his ‘friend’ publicly to not endorse him so he can win it on his own. I knew this guy was suspect and to this day many people are still absorbing his bullshit. So now, he expects to win against other capable Democrats, and succeed over an already sitting President. Why this puts him where he was before Obama in the wee political past when he lost running on his own. His best chance was a VP ascending to the corporate throne right after Obama like the Republicans did in the past, but that little mistake showed me how dumb Democrats are, because you had the helm and you let feminism and other stupidness get in the way of something practical. That’s why you see the rattiness and teamwork of Republicans winning seats in the Judiciary branch, and the Senate, and watch them recover the House of Representatives again, because they are not playing with ya’ll. YES, there are problems with them ‘handling’ Trump from the get go, BUT they’re in power now. Do you really think they are just going to give that up? All they have to do, is deal with a Motherfucker, and quickly work to re-instate Republican policies and derail/dismantle Democratic values. WHY??? WELL, somebody name Joe Biden could have stopped it, but failed to do a critical move at the time that would have kept all this shit we’re seeing right now at bay. Had Russia seen a normalcy, an interest in pimping a Candidate would not have been there. Now the Ex-Vice President, so-called forerunner, is openly being attacked, disrespected by fellow Democrats and they have a right to. He got in it with Cory Booker and Kamala Harris over the race thing both times in recent debates. Hmmm, is a circus happening again? I don’t blame Trump behaving the way he is. He’s doing the right Republican move. Oh, I’m up here as President of the United States of America. See me make a trip overseas talking to Dignitaries, other World Leaders and so on. Who are you? I’m not worried! He can keep doing that. If you Democrats don’t get it together, you’re gonna lose.

Remembering Veteran Senator John McCain (2019 Memorial Day)

Soldier Track – Metallica’s ‘One’

Dulce Bellum Inexpertis ~||~ War Is Sweet To The Inexperienced

Even after his death battling cancer, our current President, can’t help but take a dig every now and then at deceased American war hero and Senator, John McCain. So what’s the problem here? What did he do? Oh, he got captured. Well doesn’t that happen sometimes. Trump was from the 80s, didn’t the ‘Missing In Action 2’ Star Chuck Norris, playing Colonel Braddock get caught by Colonel Yin in Vietnam and by the end of the movie we see him and his small band of American soldiers battle their way out. And what about Rambo? Look man, you’ve gotta separate fantasy from reality. He’s not Rambo or Braddock doing the kung-fu or using a large machine gun that does not run out of ammo. That’s the real problem here. Trump was never in a real army on a real battle field to realize how that really goes, to be attacking John McCain. It’s easy to criticize. The man endured torture. Eventually his Asian captors realized he was the son of somebody famous during the prisoner negotiation process and began treating him better. They offered to release him first, but John insisted on the lesser privileged soldiers caught with him be let go first. That showed Leadership. I’m sure if it was Trump or his sons, not only would they have been captured too, but they would have insisted on the caviar treatment. After returning to the states, it could have just ended there with the recovery process and a little footnote in history, but he decided to serve his country more by becoming a Politician. Again, he tries to be fair when making political decisions. He ran for President a few times without winning. His most famous run, against Barack Obama where he silenced a racist woman in the audience likening Barack Hussein Obama to a Middle Eastern terrorist. When Obama won, he wasn’t out there carrying on like a fool in the Senate against him, he was busy being a Maverick Republican. But who did we see riling up the masses? It was YOU Mr. Trump. And you finally brought down the prestige of the Oval Office to the level of Reality TV. OH MY! Leave this dead man alone, stop bringing him up in the news taking swipes at Meghan McCain from time to time. He didn’t vote the way you wanted him to in the Senate, or he held out too long and whatever, leave it be. While on his death bed fighting cancer, you could not let it go still. That made him look good to some un-deciders. He’s probably beyond the grave laughing at you. He’s still remembered as an American war hero given the full burial rights despite what you think. As a sitting President, you shouldn’t be saying anything negative. I don’t know why you’re complaining about money you or the government spent in burying him or what favor you think his family owes you. There is a certain decorum expected of a man in your position. Now, I’ll leave the rest of the commentaries to his daughter Meghan McCain and his widow Cindy McCain as they are currently braving Trump attacks from time to time while grieving.

CREED II (Review)


Iuvenis Bellator – Young Warrior
(Ferrelux Quote, 3/8/2019)

I liked it. I held off from doing this story right after I saw the film because I wanted to see if it would win an Academy Award so I can include that too in my article, BUT, ‘The Oscars’ snubbed even nominating the movie. I
don’t know why. They deserved attention. I thought the storyline was well written, & had some of the 80s Rocky charm. The film however was appreciated elsewhere and won other awards. Now, some guys thought it was a girl movie, & that it didn’t live up to Creed I, but they’re forgetting the evolvement of The Rocky franchise. You need to show the softer side of a tough guy. This happened with The Rocky movies, and now Creed. Here you had a boxer and his girlfriend committing their relationship further, and then a tragedy happens. History sort of repeats itself when like his father, Apollo Creed, Adonis gets his ass kicked by Viktor Drago to near death, but the referee, who I bet admired his Father’s greatness, stopped the fight leaving Adonis still with his rights to the championship belt intact. When Ivan Drago left Russia with his son Viktor, the agenda was to place Russia back on the map in the boxing world, through his son defeating Rocky’s protégé since Rocky defeated Ivan decades ago in his own homeland. Ofcourse, Rocky was trying to get Adonis to avoid this murderous challenge, barely surviving the onslaught himself back in the day avenging his dead friend Apollo in the movie ‘Rocky IV’, but Adonis could not shun destiny. And so we see a failed Adonis, eventually getting the help he needed from his father-like Coach, Rocky, training out there in God knows where, to gain the strength & skill he needed to withstand Viktor, because his dad trained him to be a killer in the ring. Also, he has a very injured casualty, his daughter, from womb trauma, was born deaf when her mom was in the arena watching in great pain as Adonis endured a vicious beat down by Viktor in the first fight. So we’re dealing with the need to win for vengeance & being the greater fighter. So, yeah, he won the second time around with even the opposing Fight Promoter himself applauding Creed on his victory. It was a great American moment as Russia lost again & Creed also winning the applause & respect of many of the Russians in the crowd. Viktor didn’t expect it, saved by his father telling them to stop the fight. He later consoled his son. At the end of the movie, they still train. What I especially loved towards the end, was Adonis going over to his fathers grave transmitting thoughts as he looked down at it with the famous signature stare of his dad, Apollo Creed.

Mandela Centennial & Winnie’s Death (2018)

Pro Libertate Patriae ~||~ For The Liberty Of My Country

Amandla Awethu! Power to the People! As the year winds down, we remember the lives of freedom fighters Nelson Mandela, who would have turned 100 years old July 18th 2018 & his beloved Winnie Mandela who died on April 2 this year at age 81. The struggle still goes on. When you are the real majority of the people on the globe & the real minority are those oppressing you. When racism and greed fuel a global political agenda. When the Oppressed themselves in some parts fail to recognize it affecting their lives & mobilize to stop it. We look back to see the triumph of a man who was sent to the lowest depths of his life, only to rise like a phoenix to the top. How genocide & apartheid strived to keep him & his people down. The inhumane & wickedness of it all. This still goes on everyday in the United States of America. And what keeps it alive is hate, greed & apathy; a continual problem nobody is correcting politically except for infrequent times when it suits them. When it looks like we’re finally moving forward with change, society as a whole digress back to that old comfortable phase. Why? Well, human nature. The innate ugliness of fear & contempt won’t disappear. And so we live with it pretending that we’re better today when just yesterday, you had no problem disrespecting another or denying them their basic rights. We don’t like each other, really. We only pretend we do, but some of us know better, while exercising the aptitude to improve.

I, Tonya (2017 Film)

I, Tonya……..now on Dancing With The Stars (DWTS). The 2017 Movie, ‘I Tonya’ was great & the subject matter is relatable played by award-winning actresses Margot Robbie (Tonya) & Allison Janney (The Mother). Looking back at the time period of this story, I was in my graduating year in High School & Nancy Kerrigan was the skater almost everyone was rooting for….., but side opinions count. Some people liked Tonya & her hardship all the way to The Olympics representing America as well. It was fucked up what happened to her career. There are people that can relate to her story. Not everyone fits a mold for certain industries. Does this mean that you CAN’T compete? She was breaking a lot of rules. She didn’t let poverty get in the way, nor having the standard Ice Princess look or breeding hamper her chance at success & fame. And for THAT, she was punished. She was a victim of prejudice amongst HER OWN people. They loved Nancy Kerrigan. The dark-haired beauty could do no wrong. She had the judges in her favor even if she made a mistake on the ice, as long as it was not too bad, her marks were still high. Oh well…..you poor blond bitch, we don’t care about your scrapper way of getting here to our ivy league sport, you don’t belong & we don’t like you, so we’re gonna score you a little bit lower even though you were the ONLY American Woman to land the Triple Axel in 1991 in our International sport. THAT was the general attitude that poor child had to deal with even though she had A RIGHT to be there representing not only The U.S.A, but the downtrodden & disenfranchised rest of us. THEN IT ALL WENT WRONG ONE FATEFUL DAY. The asshole/loser she married to get away from her loud-mouth & funny, but abusive mother, couldn’t leave the skating politics alone & conspired with his friend to have a cohort go to where Nancy Kerrigan was practicing & whack her on the knee, where she famously screamed out, “WHY!” It injured her ability to do well in general, in an effort for Tonya to win Olympic gold ofcourse. There are those despite the old news reports & trial in the mid to late 90s, & now the current movie 23 years later partly told from Tonya’s perspective, who still doubt her innocence. The case was federally investigated & Tonya got banned professionally from the sport & competing nationally & internationally. So now for the first time ever in public, we’re seeing her at 47 years old (still able to land a triple axel while ice-skating privately) on the TV show ‘Dancing With The Stars’ competing for the Mirabal trophy along other respected athletes. But going back to that tragic event from the past, arguably the attack on Nancy Kerrigan was not necessary at all, since Tonya WAS the better skater if you look back at the old footage. The real problem here was the skating committee/judges who discriminated against her for being poor & rock n’ roll. She liked skating to heavy metal music, she looked like a hard rock chic in her outfits & I was into that stuff too & thought at the time watching her on TV, how refreshing to see someone different out there on the ice. Nancy Kerrigan was nice skating to the classical/contemporary themes, but she looked too much like the cookie-cut standard model with how she was carefully packaged. And the people in charge of the whole thing who could have made a difference, were too ignorant & blind to that. THEY are the real ones responsible, because had Tonya been treated more fairly,…..none of it would have happened.

More on the film……..

Texas Church Shooting 2017

Oh it has happened again. Somebody crazy was able to obtain a rifle under the nose of the governing authorities and took out his aggression on innocent people. When are they going to get it together in identifying these cases before they happen? The problem is the gun culture. From its conception, America has always been about your guns. From your Prairie family, to the Cowboys at the Saloon, to your modern day Gangsters. Guns are a thing. So while you are addressing community safety, you’ll need to address the culture of gun ownership too with the people who have it in their blood to shoot.

Here’s some footage on it…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Charlottesville’s Confederacy

The White Supremacists raised their ugly head again, this time in a Charlottesville, Virginia march that took place Saturday August 12th 2017. Obviously a rally like this coming to a town near you in front of Black people, wouldn’t end peacefully. The person behind this White Nationalist nonsense was Jason Kessler. You can read more about him here (https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/individual/jason-Kessler)

Now, bright people THINK before they act. Once again their White Power thing backfired. Let’s look at the last time something happened, when there was talk about removing The confederate flag from government places, monuments, stores etc. Society was s-l-o-w-l-y moving towards that idea until the ‘Alt-Right’ kept pushing their luck. A Brave Black Activist, Bree Newsome, climbed a flagpole in front of the Statehouse in Columbia, S.C. on June 27th 2015 & this event was seen live on TV, moving the hearts of Black People everywhere. Here’s a woman who took action, while closet racists White Officials were sitting around legally deciding if it was racist to keep the flag displayed on government property. Eventually they decided to remove it due to ALL the media attention, really. (https://splinternews.com/bree-newsome-a-year-after-charleston-we-still-need-to-1793857618)

The ‘Alt-Right’ attracted the counter-march of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement. And racist ass David Duke just had to be there supporting the ‘Unite The Alt-Right’ Movement, to no avail because the backlash came when one of their own racists, James Alex Fields, Jr., wound up driving his car into a crowd of protesters in attempt to kill Black people, but only succeeded in injuring a portion of the crowd and ultimately ending the life of an innocent young White Woman, named Heather Heyer, whose death was felt by The Nation. She became the cause celebre for the individual State leaders like Gov. Andrew Cuomo from New York & others, to answer the injustice by REMOVING the racist statues of Confederate Army Generals Robert Edward Lee & Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson from government places, etc. about the city & making VERY public statements about racism & that ugly incident in Charlottesville.

NOW,…….had the racist idiots just kept their behind shut, & move on with life, they still would have had the cities around America populated with their racist stuff still. No one was noticing or paying attention to that shit around them because it was historical stuff reminding people of how far we came from the past. But when you keep tickling hatred, reminiscing about some racist past time period, THE PEOPLE react by doing away with the last remnants. Now their bigot world is getting smaller & smaller & smaller…………………….

MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
