Listening to: 'Artificial Evolution'
I'm tired of being Black in the United States. I'm sick of getting followed in stores, I've flipped out before. I didn't say anything, I just started handing my clothes to her. I figured that if she's gonna follow me around she might as well be useful.
That happened a long time ago, the thing that has me pissed off (this time) is that I was in the store and the girl didn't ring up two of my items and when I told her, she looks at me like I'm crazy and says "Thanks for being honest. You're going to get good karma for this." Then she stares at me, the way she said it, is the reason it pissed me off, like she was saying "thank you little doggie, for not peeing on the carpet." The only black people I know who steal are crack heads and sociopaths! I've never stolen anything in my life, why the fuck would I steal a motherfucking lentil loaf? Most Black people do have morals. I thought it hilarious that before I went into the food store, I went to the video store and rented a movie starring Roger G. Smith and Monica Calhoun titled 'Justice' while watching it I thought about the 'Miami Terrorist.' I am so glad that most people, including white people and the media thinks the charges are complete bullshit! I mean the government's story is just pitiful! It was the best news conference ever! I cracked up laughing when after being asked by a reporter "what information do you have showing that they were going to attack the sears tower?" and this fool says "Well, one of them used to live in Chicago, so he's probably been to the sears tower and knows the area." I laughed until tears were in my eyes. And the only way I would believe that these dudes thought they were meeting with Al Quaeda (SP?) is if they are all crack addicts! Every black person in America knows that no terrorist organization is stupid enough to recruit black men. Black men in America can't piss without getting arrested for "peeing in an aggressive manner." I loved the news anchor who said "Wait a minute. What kind of terrorist organization can't afford their own boots? How would they know how to contact Al Queda(sp)? If the men had been with the new black panther party, then I would have believed it, but 7 fools in a warehouse launching a war on America...I can't wait to see the evidence! They'll probably come after me next for saying something about it! Ha-Ha! Poor black woman who can't afford a lawyer, yep, I'm as good as gone. If I disappear, ya'll know why. Ha-Ha!
And if you want to know why there are so many more black/mexican/pueto rican men in jail than white, it's not because black men commit more crimes, it's because poor men can't afford lawyers (if OJ Simpson was poor, he'd be sitting in prison right now! And for the record I don't care if he did it or not, I don't like the dude because his trial interrupted an entire season of Oprah! Ha-Ha) and rich/poor white men get community service, charges dropped, suspended sentences, time served. And white woman can rape little boys and get house arrested, if that had been a black woman her ass would have been so far under the jail, she wouldn't be seen again, I mean if she raped a white boy, no one cares when black children are raped.
I have to admit though that I have seen a slight change with the news media over this past year. Several news stations ran stories on the way white women who disappear end up on every news channel and black women rarely do. Nancy Grace does a good job getting every missing person's story out there, no matter what their race is. AJ Hammer was really passionate about this story, I saw his show one day and he was showing the picture of a black woman who went missing, her family had tried to get the news stations to pick up her story but of course they didn't and he was saying "She's just as beautiful as the white women that have been featured on the news ... so why wasn't her story on the news?"
I'm also pissed off because Best Buy had cameras on sale for a really good price but I can't shop there anymore, let me rephrase that, I wont shop there anymore. There is nothing I can do to stop people from following me in stores and assuming that because I'm black I'm also a thief but I sure as hell don't have to give them my money. Now I have to go out of the way to a more costly store. Oh that makes me think about Jay Z. I was so happy when the makers of Crystal said that they didn't like the attention from rappers because that's not what their brand is about and Jay Z yanked that shit out of his clubs immediately! That's right Jay, you can't stop 'em from acting like assholes but you can take a few dollars out of their pockets! I don't like rap music but it really annoys me that when a rapper gets arrested they are on every news channel. But you rarely hear about their charities and what they're doing to help the communities that they come from.
One day, maybe soon, maybe later, I'm going to put the entire lyrics to 'Artificial Evolution' by Subject To Change on here. I'll leave you with a line for now. "...Who said? You said. Reported it on TV, It'll be repeated later and they'll call it history... Someone said that the world is always turning, So I'd get dizzy enough to believe, That being emancipate is the same as being free. I'd rather be dead than be a part of your confusion, Ain't changed a damn thing! Artificial Evolution"
I'm really feeling this song right now. So I feel better after venting. Fuck therapy, blog for free! Ha-Ha!
