The Failure of Black Lives Matter and What You Can Do Now

Let me state up front:

Nothing good comes from:

  • Insulting people, especially police officers.
  • Bullying, including snatching microphones from those who are sympathetic to your cause.
  • Chanting “Pigs in a blanket, fry’em like bacon.
  • Causing disruption and destruction

It began with a major media reporting of a shooting of a young, black male named Trayvon Martin by a non-black, middle-aged man named George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman who wanted to become a cop but was rejected.  After the shooting, police refused to arrest Zimmerman claiming self-defense that was never supported by the facts. This resulted in law enforcers including the police and the prosecutors covering up the first degree murder of Trayvon Martin.  See Trayvon Martin murder cover-up.  Thus, any remaining trust blacks had in the criminal justice system, law enforcement, and specifically police was destroyed.

From one young black male, the issue became about all young, black males.  If the Trayvon Martin family had continued to speak out against the injustice for their son given the murder cover-up, despite those controlling their actions and Obama trying to shut them and everyone else up, then a concerted, organized, and strategic effort of those outraged by this injustice could be used to require law enforcement to finally tell the truth and do the right thing.  The Black Lives Matter movement was created as a result of this injustice, but it failed to follow through with this specific incident which would have made the outcome of future incidents have a better outcome since law enforcement would have been put on notice with concrete facts proving a murder cover-up!  In other words, if you fail to check a person, the person believes he can get away with what he is doing.

At the time of the incident in 2012, now President Donald Trump said Zimmerman should have never followed Trayvon Martin. He also said if a camera had been at the right spot, we would know what really happened.  Well my response to Mr. Trump is that a camera was at the right spot in the form of facts, science, reasoning, and common sense.  The problem is that he, like the rest of America, was never told those facts.  Logical deduction is strongly at play here. He didn’t know that then and I think he does not know that now. What if the President found out now?  This would be an excellent opportunity for him to show a caring for the black community.  To automatically assume he would not, is self-defeat. I have informed black leaders of the untold facts and the cover-up of a murder. They did nothing.  The best case scenario is that Trump takes action while “our” black leaders refuse to do so.  Tell him an see what happens. There is nothing to lose, but there is potential for gain.   This is also another opportunity for black leaders to take the action they failed to take in 2013.  They must have the spirit and determination of our elders and ancestors  who were willing to sacrifice their lives during the civil rights movement to be seen and treated like equals.  See Trayvon Martin murder cover-up.  I will also do a YouTube video which will go over the contents in my book.


My Breast Cancer Journey Part One

Early last year, I was diagnosed with invasive triple negative breast cancer which is a very aggressive form of breast cancer. I am currently undergoing treatment. I want to share my breast cancer journey since someone who shared their journey greatly helped me. I am doing this especially for African-American women whom I think can better relate to someone who looks just like them and share the same culture.

My Breast Cancer Journey Part 1

Government Sitting on Money Provided for Flint Water Crisis Residents!

Flint residents are told there is no money to replace the lead service lines as late as January 2017. This is incorrect. Government does not care about the poor and black. Watch video

Get the lead out!

Hating on Black Celebrities Working with Trump

It is disgusting to see prominent black people trying to control and punish other prominent black people for working with or speaking with Donald Trump.  They have no right and it is abuse.  Blacks know about abuse so stop it!

Responding to the Haters!

 

Republicans Don’t Be Anti-Christs

A Message to Republicans in the Name of the Bible Old and New Testament:
Duty to Help Those You Were Selected to Represent:

You Are Your Brothers’ Keeper

Seventy to eighty percent of the American population identify as Christian. Republicans whom claim to be Christian betray Christian values since their moral directives contradict what the New Testament says.  By Republicans seeking to gut Medicare and Social Security which help the retired, elderly, sick, mentally ill, and children survive, the Republicans are in direct opposition to God and Jesus Christ (the Judeo-Christian religion) which it claims to believe in.

There are ways to save both programs with no decrease in benefits for the next 75 years!  The Republicans know this. Taking the Judeo-Christian path is a true road of compassion and growing in Christ. This is the true role where being one’s brother keeper is needed when the power lies in your vote to do so.  In your elected role, you are your brothers’ keepers. The challenge is to show this through action instead of using false statements to hide and ignore the facts when it goes against your agenda. If you continue along these lines then, “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44

God does not lie to his children but cares for them. Man should not lie to those he is charged to represent and care for or else he is a betrayer and liar unlike God.  Republicans become an anti-christ in word and deed.

One of the many key distinguishing factors about Christians is that they are compassionate just as Jesus was compassionate. The definition of compassion is in English: “a feeling of deep sympathy or sorrow for another who is stricken with misfortune, accompanied by the strong desire to alleviate the suffering.”

What does the Bible says about about helping others:

  • Romans 15:1 We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
  • Deuteronomy 15:11 For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’
  • Matthew 14:14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
    Matthew 25:35-40 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
  • John 15:12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you…”
  • 2 Corinthians 1:3-4  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
  • Colossians 3:12-13  Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another,  forgiving each other;  as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
    Zechariah 7:10 do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner,  or the poor, and  let none of you devise evil against another in your heart.
  • Galatians 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
  • 1 Peter 3:8 Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy,  brotherly love,  a tender heart, and  a humble mind.
  • James 2:14-17 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
  • 1 John 3:17 But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?
  • 1 John 4:19-20 We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.
  • Acts 20:35-38 In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
  • Philippians 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
  • Galatians 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
