Why You Mad Though? It's a Card Game, Right? #BeadsOnAString #racecard #racerelations #lifenotagame #growup

Best Blogger Tips

For those who don't know, this is my rant blog. I try not to visit it often, but...
Humph, saw this picture on a friend's post and had to laugh. So, this what THEY think the card looks like? Well, of course "they" do. They are the designer of the deck. Remove that qualifier (If Person of Color & the O.J) and it can be for the White race,too. I can definitely see the resemblance. And we all know, people have died for the Black card.
To those who feel superior, but are just plain old prejudice, racist- why you mad, though?
 
Why, when we join in the game, y'all get mad?
 Why,  when we pull out that card, y'all gave us- y'all try to shut us down by shouting out "Here comes the race card!"  "Somebody always trying to make it about race? " -Because it usually is about race.

F'ck yeah,  we gonna play the card. Slap it in your face with the quickness. Let you see where it's the appropriate time to show you your face. Let you know, we hear, read, and see the bull, the bias, the double standard and we're calling you out on it. Consider it your "go fish card, " your second chance to dig in your deck and get it right.
How you ignore the fact you have your own card?  Whether it's believed or not, privilege reigns. Doesn't mean it makes you rich, but it definitely gives a free pass or an easy road to somethings. Isn't that a part of life. 

That's not our black a**es you're seeing, it's the mirror reflecting your prejudice and ignorance. You filled our hands with these cards,  while you've scrambled to hold every other card, to your advantage. And now, you're afraid you're losing.
So, why you getting mad, though? We didn't start the damned game, pre-label the cards- hell even ask to play.
We were dragged here, slapped in the middle of the game and then given(what you have falsely believed was the worst hand) the cards to play. Oh, as an addendum to this game-that card y'all keep tossing in the air about Your People SOLD you; tear that sh*t up. Whitewashed history. Any fool making themselves feel good about that lie is...  a fool. You can't sale what no one buys. JUSTIFICATION-DENIED!


Ignore and belittle it if you want, but it's everywhere. That disregard. In every area, where we as Blacks have caught up, reworked,  invented, mastered (with ease and dignity) - some whiny assed, ego dragged racist "in the guise of shedding light," or in pure hatred and jealousy- tries to destroy it.
When it comes to media and the Internet, whether we succeed, fail, or make a mistake in judgement - we are illuminated with the biggest light, chased with pitchforks, and torn to shreds. And then you want to tell us to leave OUR country!! I love when I hear that ignorance.
Wait for it, because here comes the biggest race card ever SLAVES, BLACKS, POC, BUILT THIS COUNTRY. BAAM !! - why would we leave OUR country we were born in, died for, and built? Y'all can tear that sh*t filled card up, too.

When the name of the game is and has always been Bash, Eliminate, Hold Back the Ni**er, the deck is stacked with all the tiny easily debunked white lies, the trump card is dealt and every color of the rainbow pulls up a chair and joins the game. The goal- well, we already know the name of the game.
 I'm not even gonna say anything about the other POC at the table who know damn well they have the same race card tucked between those silent fingers. Some even have the dagger card, they use to try and poke holes in the back of the Black man's card in order to make themselves look better and feel better-it's an illusion. 
They let you play along and then take it away with a few slight of hand tricks. I like to think of it as, the dumbass  or the two faced card. You people are killing yourselves. Instead of uniting and fighting for a common goal, ending discrimination, you try sharing cards with people who could care less about you.

So, y'all stop being mad,  because you can bet- we're gonna use that  card as our Ace in the hole. Society may see the black ass of a donkey or feel safe believing they've doled us a joker, but they're wrong. We hold nothing but Kings and Queens. And, even though you can't see it, because you're focusing on all the negative, swallowing (by the crab filled bucket) what media feeds you, we fight for every success we achieve and win every time.

If you want to see racism end,
  • STOP pretending it isn't there. 
  •  STOP holding on to the deck so hard and toss every last one of the cards. Unlabel, take away that hyphen between every race of American.
  • STOP pretending racism is confined to one race and that we don't all have a play in it. 
  • STOP labeling entire groups of people by the negative actions of individuals who happen- by luck of birth,  to live in the same skin tone. Because if you're going to see and treat me as a parasite, I'm going to see you as a white sheet wearing, pedophile/rapist, mass murderer of women and children.
So, you see- that race card can be pulled by anyone in the game- why you mad, though? Get over it, stop playing games, and grow up.

In case you haven't heard, This is Beads on a String, America's only multiracial history book to celebrates the contributions of ALL races/ethnicity to America's growth.

BEADS ON A STRING-AMERICA'S RACIALLY INTERTWINED BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY

History is written in more than black and white.

Releasing her first creative non-fiction American History book Ey Wade takes you through time and life stories to show you the multitude or races who helped make America the great country it is. Where in history can you find people from every ethnicity combined and having the story told of how they contributed to America? Beads on a String, America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History lauds loudly the accomplishments of all people who helped make America the great country it has become. Beads on a String is America’s first multiracial history book. Sometimes we forget history is for the formation of the future.

Why did I write Beads on a String- America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History?

It started off as a home-schooling Black history month project with my youngest daughter. One day my daughter and I were on the subject of Black History Month. We were irritated and frustrated (as a lot of people are) about the fact history of such a great race is illuminated once a month and on the shortest month and then she asked "When is White history month?"
"Everyday," I answered. Then (as children do) she started asking for the month of each race and the book where they were all included...there were none. We decided to make one. We should all be celebrated and recognized on the daily.

Beads on a String-America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History book is the first and only book to bring America's racial history together within one binding. My desire is to encourage unification in our understanding of contributions and worthiness of all races. I think it is way past time Americans realize history was written in more than Black and White and help our children learn this daily. Words can either hurt or heal and either way their effect can last an eternity.
My belief is:
I feel that we as Americans are all equal and held together by a common thread.  Like a treasured beaded necklace of different colors held together on a string, we are held together by our necessities and our circumstances and our humanity.  Every color helps to make the necklace beautiful. We can never be a totally separate entity! Americans of all colors are so integrated that if we hurt one, we hurt all. Just like that necklace of treasured beads, leave one out and the gap is seen. Break the chain and many of us are lost.~Ey Wade

Don't Let the World Rain on Your Parade. All We Need is LOVE. #thingslegendsaremadeof

Goober Abbott is such a hypocrite- the vote didn't make you God.
 He speaks "religious rights" for believers then wants to say who is a true believer. "It is not acceptable that people of faith be exposed to such abuse," he continued. "Displays of hate and intolerance against people of faith should be denounced by all people of good will and spark concern among anyone who believes in religious liberty and freedom for all." Your own words prove you're a moron.

Faith is believing in a substance unknown. God/Jesus is unknown. A belief you believe in your spirit, heart, soul, mind...whatever.

HIS word- written and rewritten by man, taught by man, believed by man, interpreted by man, followed by man. Man said, God said "Love," Above all else love. Nothing greater than Love. No if ands or buts... Religion says BUT...
Gonna be a mighty sad day when all the saints get to Heaven and the sign says,  ENTER IF YOU LOVED ALL, WITHOUT A BUT.

Have your opinions, make sure it doesn't effect your heart. Cuz I heard, and I'm not one to spread false rumors, but God said, He judges the heart of man.

There are some really good people in the world- Your daddy, brother, sister, cousin,auntie, black, red, yellow, white,man, woman, single mother, co-worker,best friend- who you stab in the heart- when you bash their race, religion, sex, and orientation. And then you want to turn around and love on them. Hypocrite.

If I heard wrong and religion/Faith is not about love, please let me know. There are a lot of damned people I can turn my back on right now. Loving some of those fools is hard work.

Demand Removal of BS Newsreporting- Dear Media Grow Up- Plz. RT

Best Blogger Tips

I guess I'm not the only one fed up with the horrible way the happenings in America is reported. I should say, talked about, as if it's a game of "Telephone," always ending in ridicule, wrong, and demeaning. I'm sick to death of it and can't see why we as the citizens can't demand more.

There is no longer news reporting, just a continuous assault of ignorant loud mouth racial vomit, ranting and opinion. Much of it not reflecting any sane person's thought pattern.

I say we need a petition. Clean your act or get off the networks. We can be like Canada and ban FOX! The largest hate mongering, race baiting, ignorant leader of verbal Crap.Yesterday was the last straw. Good bye you whiny, fact devoid crybabies.

I saw this letter written by Angie Brill and it says it all.
THIS IS HER LETTER: Go to the link for video and podcasts.

Dear Media: Grow Up!
America has been given yet another opportunity to begin sincere dialogue about the problems we have with racism in our society. We have them at least once a month now. The reason we know about the events is because you report them to us. Then, tragically, you turn every single event into something fantastical that can get you ratings.
Every. Single. Time.
I feel confident that the reason you ignore important discussions is because you know that most Americans don't want to hear it. They are quite content in their little bubbles where societal issues don't affect them. You fear they will turn the channel and watch some other network give them 24/7 nonsense. As a journalistic outfit, can you not just accept that and do your job? Can you not make it important to give America the information that they need?
Today Marc Maron's podcast, WTF, had an interview with President Obama. The interview was a revelation. We were offered thoughtful and candid reflections from our leader about the issues of race in America. These are issues that are traditionally ignored by those in leadership because they don't want to offend anyone in their base or be called out for saying something insensitive. We finally had a deep conversation with our President. You are all telling us that he used the N- word. Are you fucking kidding me? It literally gave me a vision of you sitting at your desk in third grade, raising your hand with your mouth making an 'ooo' and begging the teacher to call your name so you can say, "Ooohhhh, teacher, Johnny said the N- word."
GROW UP!
Here is the podcast
The entire point of his having said it was to point out that just because those in society don't hear the words use as often doesn't mean the same supremacy that used to allow it doesn't still exist. He gave you something to tell us. If you truly were journalists the discussion would have started right there. You have plenty of news clips you could've shown of many politicians and pundits on the right using coded language to incite their base.
Here. Let me get you started. Take these videos and begin the dialogue in our discourse regarding why it is still acceptable for Americans to be full of hate and believe that racism is still a part of our political world.
Last week offered us plenty of opportunities to sincerely discuss race with the comments coming from the right. Their inability to empathize about how hurtful the Confederate flag would be to the descendents of slaves while supporting the people who see the flag as a proud symbol of their heritage (a heritage of their ancestors fighting for the right to maintain slavery) should be profound enough, but it was ignored and offered to us as just a matter of fact.
Here we have Lindsey Graham explaining why the Confederate Flag is an important symbol of the South and then he literally waves his hands as if to say 'over there' and says they have an "African American memorial." The memorial is, obviously, a throw away. And the pain the flag causes and its symbolism adopted by racist groups is, too.
Remember Charles Murray? The white trash piece of shit who wrote the Bell Curve? Right. The guy who wrote about how whites are genetically predisposed to superiority over blacks. Just this year in an interview Jeb Bush was questioned about solving the issues of income disparity and he went into a talk about welfare and, without encouragement, went into explaining how his ideas are shaped by Charles Murray. The rest of his answer was about welfare, and because of who he quoted, he was obviously talking about black people being the problem.
Rick Santorum telling a group of white people about how its not fair to give the black people welfare money that white people earn.
Instead of focusing on the President reminding us that racism exists, maybe give America an opportunity to reflect on why it is still deemed socially acceptable. Just last week Donald Trump, while kicking off a campaign to be our President offered us a nice look into the mentality:
Mike Huckabee is forever condemning the President for fighting against the Jews and Christians. This is his dog whistle reminder to their racist base who need to hear reminders about the rumors they started about President Obama being a Muslim and means to support Jihadists. He tells us that everything the President does is against the Jews and Christians (just like Jihadists).

Here he tells us he was proud to have a black President and now he realizes that Obama doesn't want America to succeed. They are always telling their base that the President is sincerely trying to ruin the country.

The Chinese (all of them, apparently) lack imagination and are thieves

Maybe you could just discuss this for a single moment (from earlier this year):
Oh. By the way. Here is a journalist who gets it. Maybe give him a call and ask how its done. Editorializing is, in fact, necessary sometimes. If you do not editorialize you offer the Republican faithful only the dog whistles they are being sent without offering any rationality or asking thoughtful Americans to consider why they are hearing things they find offensive.
It is unfathomable that you all get to call yourselves journalists and then behave as if you are either employed by a tabloid or the Fox cable channel with the word 'news' in its title.
As often as the politicians on the right offer us examples of how large swaths of human beings can be immediately dismissed or worse, you never find it important to report on that. You are literally complicit in the racism so pervasive in our society when you give a voice to the racist actors and do not either condemn them or ask your audience for reflection
