IX: Whose Man’s is this anyway?”  

8/5/17 (Day 270)- In Philly for a few days (which makes me 3/3 for showing up to cities and seeing a damn Trump tower) and of course when in Rome you do the whole touristy thing.  Philadelphia is not much unlike Boston in that they really play up the Colonial days.  Perhaps even more so, because it’s freedom this, freedom that, I mean slavery was legal here but on the low tho we rode for the cause.  I’m surprised they haven’t renamed the city Freedomdelphia.   Then reality sets in.  You  look at the actual Declaration of Independence and remember that you wasn’t “all men”, the Constitution applies to you, until it doesn’t.  Freedomdelphians come from all over the country to see documents and symbols that aren’t for you.  Humbling.  This is America through white gaze, a scrappy little country that could and ultimately did.  While to me, it’s more like the fuckboy who got his act together slightly enough for the next one but still has plenty of the same old bad habits.  You try to explain that America still ain’t change but they  lalalalalala can’t hear you over all of this freedom, why you so bitter?  

8/8/17 (Day 273)- So on today’s episode of The Apprentice, Toupee Fiasco just threatened North Korea.   Like, we need an adult yo.  It’s not that I have any doubt they if it came down to it, America can give North Korea the fade but at what cost? Lives? Nukes? Reelection? 

8/12/17 (Day 277)- So remember how last week I said Freedomdelphia was how doe eyed white people see America? Charlottesville is the other side of that.  White people who claim they too are oppressed; because by capitalism. Oh never mind they are marching to save a Confederate statue.  With Tiki torches. And Nazi salutes. And anti semetic chants. It’s the opposite end of the spectrum,  Freedomdelphians are so privileged they view every increment of progress as resolved, Tiki Torchers are so privileged they view every increment of progress as oppression.  The irony is we aren’t even close to equality, we at eo still building the q.  How are we already at Klan rallies, we couldn’t get to equa first?  Why are these new Nazis so pressed? Outside of losing your job for saying the #inward or wearing blackface, the world is your fucking oyster.

8/13/17 (Day 278)- Cantaloupe Caillou has called out Obama, Hillary, war heroes, mayor of London, CNN, Morning Joe, Colin Kaepernick, Washington Post, the NY Times, Hamilton: The Musical, Mac Miller, The Terminator, North Korea, Venezuela, Jeff Sessions, James Comey, Nordstrom, Django Unchained,  NBC, China, Mexico, Judges, Congress…. But when it’s white supremacists literally marching in his name suddenly he’s vague.  Where’s the sound and fury?  It makes me think about all the times Obama would give a platitude and people would get frustrated because he wouldn’t say how he really felt because he was the black President but not the BLACK President.  Now I see Toupee Fiasco unwilling to condemn Nazis who ran down a protester.  Even as there’s a clear and obvious side to take, #their man’s takes  “many”.  White privilege displayed at the highest level of government. So again, why exactly are they mad? 

8/15/17 (Day 280)-  So a day after offering a condemnation of racists that was on par with Martin Payne’s first marriage proposal…he doubles back and again blames both sides.  The fuck is an “alt-left” there’s Nazis and people who say fuck Nazis. This isn’t a debate like drums or flats.  At least now, the bluff has been called.  Twitler has aligned himself with white supremacists, and any and every one who supports him supports that. Reagan had the courtesy to dog whistle, to give himself and his supporters an “I’m not racist, but…” shield to hide behind.  The Tangerine Tyrant and his Tiki Torch troupe are out and shameless about theirs, and now the safety pin wearers are forced to come out and pretend they were duped like they didn’t know this is what this always was.  Far as I’m concerned the red hat and the MAGA sign are swastikas now and society should treat it accordingly. 

8/17/17 (Day 282)- White people still showing their ass about these Confederate statues like we don’t still got slave owners on the money.  Doth protests too much. Suddenly it’s about preserving history, because not revering Confederate generals is the same as if they were taken against their will and had their lives erased.  Removing Confederate statues isn’t erasing history, we will never forget the fact that white people went to war against their own military because they couldn’t own other human beings anymore. That is a fact.  These statues were erected during Jim Crow not as a reverence for American history but a tribute to whiteness.  Trump is from New York telling a crowd in Arizona that he will protect their “culture”, y’all ain’t even go there.  Clearly this isn’t about Southern pride. Ain’t y’all “the party of Lincoln” (when it’s convenient to say)  anyway?, So is it Oochie Wally or is it One Mic. 

8/18/17 (Day 283)- SPOILER ALERT

(so you know how on House of Cards, Frank realizes that the power isn’t in the Presidency but it’s in the shadows with access to the Presidency.  That’s pretty much how I view this Steve Bannon firesignation. He ain’t really going anywhere he’s just hot right now.  Maybe he can go cure that Greyscale while he’s gone) 

8/20/17 (Day 285)- The President’s a hack, my student loans due is this World War 3 or Civil War 2…the former. This week. While racial tensions at home remain thicker than Serena, which has made us all forget that Sesame Tweet threatened North Korea 2 weeks ago and then China responded with a “bitch, try it”; Dolt45 comes out to announce he plans to send more troops to Afghanistan because… reasons. It’s pointless to bring up that spent the past 5 years calling for the withdrawal of troops but for the last 5 years he was just the dude from the Apprentice.  Apparently, he’s already live tweeted his entire presidency*.  He’s the Three Eyed Racist.  

8/22/17 (Day 287)-  According to an ABC/WaPo poll, 10% of Americans support the alt right (Nazi) movement.  That’s 16.4 million people, about 25% of Trump voters. (as far as I’m concerned 4 out of 4 of them are).  Then there’s the people with “no opinion” (Freedomdelphians) who if you’re not against you might as well be with, silence is violence B.  This is what happens when people feel emboldened by their Klansman-in-Chief. 

8/25/17 (Day 290)- Sheriff Joe Arpaio terrorized the Latino community.  Racial profiling, concentration camps, shackled a woman and forced her to give birth, refused to investigate sex crimes committed against immigrants, refused to feed or treat prisoners many of whom he rounded up for existing while brown.  In November, Hillary called out Trump for even supporting him. And today Orange Foolius pardoned him, because he “kept Arizona safe”.  Even after Charlottesville, the Hate Pumpkin isn’t even lowkey anymore.  Then again, why would one expect him to be, he said he was going to build a wall to keep the Mexicans out and now we here. 

8/27/17 (Day 292)- …and speaking of that damn wall, will that be cash, credit, or government shutdown? According to 2peé Shakur, Mexico will reimburse which is basically saying the check is in the mail. The cynic in me almost wants the wall as a testament to how divided and hateful this country truly is. Then you see Houston underwater and remember that Conman Twitty slashed the coast guards budget to try and pay for the wall.  You remember that behind every stupid tweet, blatant lie, poor decision, empty threat… Real lives are at stake.   When disaster strikes you need a real leader not the jackass who posts memes and tries to look at the sun.  

8/29/17 (Day 294)- The President and First Lady arrive in Texas, oh wait it’s just Pumpkin Spice Putin and his escort.   Now I’m not going to politicize a natural disaster who would do something so crass.  Trump supporters, of course. 

8/31/17 (Day 296)- Why are we still here? Honestly.  Approval ratings in the toilet, CEOs from tech, labor, entertainment, sports are all running for the hills, every week someone getting fired, Mueller is still working on his investigation, North Korea still wants the fade, can’t afford the wall, couldn’t repeal Obamacare, Muslim ban flopped, and now Nazis trying to party like it’s 1939.  Everyone knows he collided with Russia it’s about the worst kept secret since Cersei/Jamie’s incest affair.  Seriously, whatever this…Presidency as been, failed.  So, why are we still here?  If/when DonaLLLLLd falls, will anyone make a sound.  75% of his supporters only love him in private like an ugly girlfriend.  Or so we’re led to believe.  Condemning Trump in public does nothing for me, that happened all election cycle and ultimately it was 306-232.

Today’s Word is… FIRED

7/6/17 (Day 240)- I love this country, I harshly judge this country… Thats kinda how the whole black in America thing works. I think about the times when I personally was ashamed to be an American, I can think of 3 off top; Katrina, Sandy Hook and this.  When I wasn’t just angry at my government but I actually felt the shame, I thought about how other nations probably viewed us.  Treating own citizens like refugees? Kids killed and not a single push on gun control? And then, there’s this orange duckfacing reality star who was chosen to run the whole country.   Looking at clips of Toupee Fiasco at the G20 summit, speaking to other nations about his beef with a cable news network, having to literally be babysat during his sit down with Putin because he can’t be trusted with, you know, words. It’s actually reached the point of shame.  This actually happened, he’s the 45th president of the United States, forever.  The embarrassing high school picture of American history.  Just as you look at those colored contacts and 5X tee shirts and wonder what the hell you were thinking, that’s how I will always remember 2016.  Even after history inevitably whitewashes this and blames Russia for everything. YOU did this, America. YOU did.  

7/11/17 (Day 245)- These are my confessions, I’ve never actually seen the Godfather I just get the pop culture references and fake my way through.  If Mango Mussolini can fake his way through the Presidency, surely I can fake my way through this analogy.  So in The Godfather, when Vito almost gets killed or something and then James Caan does get killed as acting mob boss, Vito picks his youngest son, Scarface to take over instead of Fredo who would’ve been next in line.  Because you can’t give Fredo too much power, he’d Fredo it up.  So when news broke that Donald Trump Jr, the Fredo of this family of Fredos met with a Russian lawyer to get dirt in Hillary Clinton complete with email chain, I thought wow, he really IS Fredo.  So what does Fredo do? He doubles down on the Fredoness by tweeting the emails out without any idea of if and how this can blow up in his face.  In Godfather II, Fredo tries to take out Al Pacino, fails and gets dealt with.  Because of course he did, he’s Fredo. Meanwhile, Twitter Fingers Sr has yet to chime in.  Because, it’s Fredo.  

7/15/17 (Day 249)- To commit an act of treason, one must aid a country we are at war with.  The United States and Russia are not at war, but relations between the two countries have been on “I just don’t like this bitch” forever.  So… its technically treason but not treason.  Diet Treason. Treason Lite.  Apparently, that’s close but no cigar because Congress is acting like none of this is happening and back to the business of replacing Obamacare with Get Rich of Try Dying. They’ve accepted Orange Foolius for what he is, a distraction so while people wonder colluding with a foreign government to alter the results of an election isn’t a crime, they continue to work in the shadows. You look up and realize Dolt45 hasn’t actually done anything of note since taking office but golf and tweet.  A cheeto dust smokescreen. 

7/21/17 (Day 255)- Considering it’s his catchphrase, Nacho Nazi isn’t good at firing people.  Instead he just hires your replacement and hopes your pride makes you quit.  I mean, it works for his wives.  The latest victim, Sean Spicer.  I can’t say I’d miss Spicey, but I’m sure Melissa McCarthy is broken up over this… This impression did more for her career than Mike and Molly ever did.  I’ll miss the countless countless lies, the memes, and maybe this means that Press Briefings will air like again because that whole cameraless thing was very troubling.   Enter Anthony Scaramucci, who is what I think Trump thinks he looks like.  Sure he’s from Goldman Sachs, supported Obama and calls himself the Mooch… Consistently doesn’t matter, that’s pretty par for the course. The issue isn’t that Persimmon Putin needs a better communication team, it’s the actual bullshit being communicated.  Like lying about the Inauguration crowd like we don’t have, cameras.  Lies to cover up a lie that was a lie about another lie.  Why not just hire Joe Budden?

7/24/17 (Day 258)- This is the bill that never dies, yes it goes on and on my guys, Senators tried to vote on it not knowing what it was, they’ll just keep supporting it forever just because this the bill that… They are really adament about ripping healthcare from poor people.  They even rushed John McCain out of cancer recovery just to make sure broke people won’t be able to in the future.  They are if nothing else, persistent. Meanwhile Sunkist Stalin, finally defends Fredo by mentioning Hillary’s “acid washed” emails. (Literally not a thing).  He really cares about those emails… Maybe that’s why he colluded with Russia to get them. 

7/25/17 (Day 259)- So Trumpcare 3.0 aka Wealthcare aka Get Rich or Try Dying is dead. I think. For now.  Sure it’ll be back tho. Like herpes. Shoutout to Usher.  The biggest plot twist was that the deciding FOH vote came from John McCain.  After someone may have said God need to call his ass home already. Allegedly.  Let’s not get carried away here, if you pull a gun on someone, decide not to fire you then don’t get to say you saved their life. Which is pretty much what happened there.  But good looks John, and you know beat cancer.  So yet another L for Donallllllld, I thought deals were his thing. *sips tea*

7/26/17 (Day 260)- Still nursing the L he caught yesterday, Darth Cheeto decided to tweet out a ban on transgendered people in the military.  Because fuck you, that’s why.  His lists the reason as being cost, but in reality he’d save the country more money by actually paying his taxes.  It’s simply discrimination for the sake of doing so.  This wasn’t some hard decision, there’s no remorse, he tweeted it with the same regard as I would tweet what I had for breakfast.  Let me know when the military officials themselves challenge this tho. *sips more tea* Bleh. It’s cold. 

7/31/17 (Day 265)- Moooooch, we hardly knew ye. I mean imagine missing the birth of your child and losing your wife for a job you “held” for 10 days.  You ain’t even get a badge yet, a .gov email address, can’t even update your LinkedIn page, ain’t even get fired on your day off because you haven’t even got PTO yet, I was an engineering major (12 days) longer than he was employed (bout 10).  Milk and plantain had longer shelf lives. Good laugh indeed. See you in a few Scaramuccis.

Today’s Word is… SUPERCALLOUSMISOGYNISTICRACISTNAZIPOTUS

So first, I’m sure that is and will be the longest word in the history of SFW.  And second, I swore I was going to take a Trump break but well, it’s been a long week.  This….is…the…remix.  

           

1/22/17 (Day 75) – So I read the inauguration speech, because the sound of Mango Mousellini’s voice makes me want to jump out of a window.  I didn’t expect much, but I found myself shocked how blatantly divisive it was.  There was little to no message about coming together, it was a rally cry for all of his supporters. As millions protested his inauguration  (some of which voted for him), Toupee Fiasco sits upon his throne with no incentive to win them over, he’s already secured a 4 year bye. (So he thinks). 

The black President was never afforded such luxury.  Not that he even wanted to.
Every word hyper analyzed, Obama was tasked with palliating white fear that he would be the BLACK President, appealing to his base only.  The revolution has been televised. Black people can barely enjoy February, BET, Black Girls are Magic without first swimming across a lake of white tears as they complain about exclusion.  What little we have, we are expected to share, as the new President of the United States openly gloats about how he and his supporters have successfully deboed the country back and it’s normalized. This country is conditioned to fear the black revolutionary; a black Trump couldn’t exist.  Not even a black Bernie. The black president will always have to hold white people’s hands and tell them he won’t abandon them.  The orange one…he just points to the electoral map like a #Scoreboardt.  

1/25/17 (Day 78)- Richard Spencer got punched again. The New Edition Movie has been a pleasant distraction from a lot of the nonsense.  It’s the little things. 

1/27/17 (Day 80)- You know how they say the pen is mightier than the sword? Persimmon Putin has shown how mighty it can be as he’s made white supremacy go platinum in its first week. 2001 Islamophobia is back with a vengence and he didnt even need to buy a 9/11 with his trap money.  He enacted a muslim ban, because he could.  Lord help us all if theres an actual attack and the country is in a panic.

I weep for the bill, sitting on Capitol Hill, as the Supercallousmisogynisticracistnazipotus seems to have decided that even with a fully supported Congress he can just rule via executive orders. Congress argued against Obama’s use of EOs, but allow Trump to cook because if and when it blows up they can say they didn’t do it. Cowards.

1/29/17 (Day 82)- One of the biggest struggles of being a black man in America is the duality of having privilege and being oppressed at the same time. So far, Trump has gone after women, Mexicans, immigrants but has yet to do anything specifically to ME, but I remain in constant fear that time will be up soon enough.  So I find myself looking upon the wreckage and can’t help but see the irony in seeing the world react to everyone being treated like black people. 

From slavery, Jim Crow, redlining, prison industrial complex, war on drugs, student debt, underemployment,  gentrificiation…this country has been legally attacking us for generations only to be responded to with gaslighting.  “I didn’t own slaves”, “we elected a black president”, “racism is a dated concept”.  Even our own bought into the rhetoric using black on black crime and respectability politics to rationalize an undeserved war waged against us.  

But….this isn’t about me. Yet.  Edward Littlehands is distracted for the moment going after refugees. A country “founded” on religious freedom and Give Me Your Tired… is turning innocent people away because they believe that they may turn on the America who by the way are bombing the fuck out of them.   It’s being sold as a precautionary measure but Boston Marathon bombers? Russian.  Dylan Roof?  All American boy. Automatic rifles? Still able to be purchased by civilians. So tell me more how blocking immigrants is keeping us safe?

Terror isn’t a religion or a skin color.  It isn’t even something you can actually wage war against.  You can make it into whatever you want it to be and then attack that (you know like “drugs”)  

1/30/17 (Day 83)- I don’t care what your politics are…if you think this would be the first 10 days under Hillary you’re insane.  That is all.
