Black America is Confronted
with the
Fierce Urgency of Now


"I believe America’s illegitimate king, by openly
declaring his 'nationalist' heart, mind and soul
for all the world to see and hear a few weeks ago
'awakened' the 'dead-heads' in the hood and the barrio,
lit a fire under their disinterested behinds and
sent scores upon scores to the polls."

We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there "is" such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.”Martin Luther King Jr.

King Trump was rightfully kicked in his political testicles on November 6th, 2018, consequently he’s now “post” midterm elections - a mortally wounded caveman. l plead with the Gods to have mercy on our apathetic and lackadaisical asses because “hell hath no fury” like a insecure, immature and insulted 72 year-old male prom queen.

Tragically Trump’s got the fate of the Black American Empire in the palms of his itty, bitty, tiny hobbit-like hands.

I believe America’s illegitimate king, by openly declaring his “nationalist” heart, mind and soul for all the world to see and hear a few weeks ago “awakened” the “dead-heads” in the hood and the barrio, lit a fire under their disinterested behinds and sent scores upon scores to the polls.

Trump’s defending-of the Ku-Klux Tiki Klan at Charlottesville, coupled-with the horrific murders of 8 innocent Jewish folk while worshiping at Squirrel Hill a couple of weeks ago - in which a defiant Trump claimed his ongoing flammable and combustible bigoted statements didn’t inspire and motivate the synagogue killer woke a few folks.

Today Trump’s a wounded neanderthal, and he’s not going to go on the defense, as his disconnected and detached from political reality press conference the day-after the elections illustrated in black and white.

Trump’s declaring “war” on everyone who isn’t a “White Nationalist,” striking a war-like posture with all his political adversaries, i.e., his “sworn enemies.” Trump attacked two black female journalist, April Ryan and Yamiche Alcindor just for effect, to please and incite his people - who love it. Please don’t get it twisted - the Klansman is declaring war on Black and Latino people. And too “his” people are declaring war on folks of color. White militias are headed-down to the Rio Grande as you read this . . . to shoot at kids who may throw rocks at them.

An you say “OPEN SEASON?”

Before the “day-after” was half-done, lord Trump had fired his weak-minded Confederate General Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions - his first aggressive offensive move to appoint his own hand puppets and slow the Progressive posse on his tail. Lord Trump’s trying to declare himself “untouchable” - out of touch and far-above the laws of mere men.

Ain't that a tyrannical . . . for ya’?

Trump’s adolescent dogging and mocking of the GOP politicians who didn’t seek his icky embrace and presence in the final days was telling - Omarosa is right - this cat is a petty, spiteful, mean-spirited, vindictive and highly trifling cartoon character come-to-pathetic life.

Please pay attention here: Trump’s retreating defense is an explosive offense, he’s going to get on his elephant and take the fist-fight to the ladies and gentlemen on the Left who’re fixated with “going high,” not getting down in the mud and getting their school clothes dirty,

Trump's coming back, and this time he’ll be bringing hell with him.

The immeasurable significance of these 2018 elections and the looming aftermath we’re all about to endure had best serve as a loud-ass 4:37 AM wake your ass up call for Americans of color . . . we answered this particular bell, we showed-up and showed-out . . . a little-bit at the election polls. We slowed their racist roll and that’s significant because Trump’s white America is still going to commence with the business of putting our black asses back in chains. And perhaps I don’t mean actual iron chains, but rather mental/economical/educational and political chains. However considering the sinister punk we’re confronted with, perhaps I do mean actual iron chains, the hell with figuratively speaking . . . .

Hear me now - the “by-product” of Trump’s checkerboard move to eradicate the 14th amendment dealing with birthright citizenship will be to revoke black Americans citizenship/human-ship designation and return black folks to slave status, seriously.

With a hostile House all over his ass, to distract, Trump will take America to war . . . Iran, North Korea, who knows? Nonetheless young men and women of color, our sons and daughters will be drafted into Trump’s army, immediately deemed “expendable” and their blood will be exchanged for Texas Tea, Black gold . . . crude oil, and Trump’s kids, the other WASP aristocrats kids will be nowhere near the fighting. And when we hit the streets in predictable protest the emperor will release the dogs and tanks.

Laugh, chuckle, roll your eyes all you want, but by underestimating this “Big Apple” hustler’s twisted ingenuity. and ignoring the complicity when 90% of white America blindly backs him - here we sit finding ourselves at Trump’s merciless mercy today in the year of somebody’s God, 2018.

Dig this; Trump’s mission remains the same - to not merely turn-back the hands of progress, but to rip the flippin’ clock off the goddamn wall!

What is for sure: based on the reign of Trump and the support he’s receiving from most of White America - from this moment on in time the need-for such devices as Affirmative Action and police review boards is undeniable. People of color and our collective charges of racism and discrimination can never, ever be dismissed again as paranoia and incompetence or ”playing the race card,” for obviously white folks don’t simply dislike us, they hate us all.

The vast majority of White America has displayed and proven their wonton hatred for just about everything and everybody who ain’t white.

Let’s be honest: White mainstream USA culture never really opened its hardened “ice-cold” heart and “closed” mind, never really changed, grew, matured, saw the light of brotherhood and overcame the widespread struggle with the “ground-floor” belief that people-of-color are too 100% human, and ought be treated as such, as equals in our mutual humanity.

There’s no argument about it: Trump, Hannity, Rush, all the “royal round-table” of racist sexist and highly elitist rednecks have taken note of this extensive, broad anger, resentment and seemingly uncontrollable hostility deeply embedded within the coarse fabric of their people. AM hate radio is stoking the fires everyday, around the clock. When the Rosewood and Wounded Knee type massacres play-out across the land these race baiting “Tokyo Roses” who are nothing more than instigating, agitating white nationalist propagandist - will have blood on their microphones.

The tribal hate is also embedded within global European culture apparently. From New Zealand to Italy, Germany and Poland white men and their mindless/spineless women are attempting to revive colonialism and apartheid.

These mo-fo’s are crazy.

I’d submit it is this “hatred” of Black, Yellow, Red and Brown people which enabled “European Colonialism” in the first place . . . dah!!! This blanket hatred of people not like them is precisely and exactly what still today propels the rank n’ file of Trump’s storm-troopers. Any day now, any day now Trump or one of his clones is going to call some Afro-American a ”nigger,” you just wait, it’s coming, and after that . . . it’s all downhill for this fractured nation.

Trump’s verbal assaults will embolden and encourage white Nationalist, give the everyday Fred and Barney license to act a fool.

Whether or not black and brown men know it, and too many don’t because the game is on TV, but Trump has just declared “game-on!” As have his people too declared war on Americans of color, and upon a world of color, as we speak . . . as we speak.

We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.

2018: Passports or bullets . . . . get outta Dodge or dig-in.

Wisely utilizing one’s US Passport demands an well thought-out “exit strategy,” while stockpiling bullets in the face of a rising Confederate army comprised of white police, military, militia, your neighbors - you name it, an “united white front” which will wage war upon black America, and in the hideous end, after they’ve killed of the strongest - they’ll cut-off and starve-out the remaining black folks. Then imprison or lynch the boys, girls, women and elderly.

Tell me Trump won’t. Negro please!

Sorry, I know the truth hurts, however so many unenlightened negro men can’t recall the horrors of slavery and need a Hollywood “movie” to rattle their lost, complacent, apathetic souls (ain't that a pathetic, pitiful bitch of a harsh reality) far too many of you need sharp and blunt-minded folks to lay it out in such stark terms.

Let’s wrap this up::Trump’s white America is racist, “Confederate” racist to the core. At risk of overstating the truth’; the Confederacy isn't a southern geographical location on an old map, but instead its a “state of mind.” Trump understands this reality, banked on it, campaigned in the last hours focusing on fear-mongering, screaming out racist dog-whistles/dinosaur-calls. . . . instead of touting the growing economy - he bet on, doubled down on white hatred - we ought not minimize nor slight that brutal fact.

Band!!! “Instead of touting the growing economy - he bet on, doubled-down on white hatred!”

Trump knows his people, the problem is we people-of-color no-longer “know” white folks. We don’t have a historical handle on “who” and “what” they were, what they remain are and what they want (to take back America and make it white again) we are in some Disney state of denial as “we are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.”
