TOWN HALL with the PRESIDENT

As a Black American, the more I listened to the questions, the more I was pissed. This President has done more than any other President to do something about Immigration Reform; and yet undocumented immigrants are continuously blaming President Obama for the lack of it.

The people who are campaigning for legalization has absolutely nothing to say to Republicans and the far right; the only reason I can come up with is this, they feel that they can say anything to the Black President and too cowardly to say something to those who outright don’t want them here.

Get a heart, this President is the President for all the people, and have illustrated that. There are Black people in this country that needs the President also; as Black people we will not take a back seat to anybody who came to America to better their lives.

Those of you who don’t know, we who are descendants of slaves didn't come here looking for a better life; we were kidnapped, there is no equivalence.

I Love GOD and know God Love me Back

I’m trying to figure out why certain people don’t utilize one of the most important things in life they were born with, common sense.

When people campaign each and everyday about how much they love GOD and how much GOD love them, I’m trying to figure out; ok so what’s your point.

The real way any of us can show that we love GOD, and GOD love us back is to send a positive message about what you’re doing to make your neighborhood a better and safe place for you and your family to thrive.

The only thing the average person wants out of life is to live peacefully and in harmony with others.

One out of every fifty messages, especially on Face Book of how you know GOD love you has absolutely nothing to do with the betterment of how you’re contributing to yourself and others for the good of society.

There are very few comments in regards of how ‘Black on Black Crime’ has become a plague in the Black community. When we don’t respect the people who look like us, it’s foolish to expect the people who don’t look like us to respect us.

No War Strategy

As a Vietnam Marine War Veteran, I’m getting sick and tired of talking heads and retired generals appearing on any media outlet they can find to pulverize the President about he doesn’t have any strategy going forward in regards to how to approach ISIS.

None of these people have a clue of what’s being discussed in the situation room, if they did, Osama bin Laden would still be alive. One thing for sure, in this day and age, generals don’t die on the battle field.

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) or Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has never seen any upfront and in person fighting on a battle field. John McCain got shot down in Vietnam, and lived in the Hanoi Hilton throughout the Vietnam War, although Mr. McCain suffered as a POW and all of us owe our utmost respect to him; but the man never saw any real action on a battle field.

As for Lindsey Graham, I have nothing to say, because the man did absolutely nothing; in Vietnam or his time in Congress.

Congress Wants To Know What The Military Is Doing

As a Vietnam Marine veteran I know for a fact when the House of Representatives and the Senate gets a heads-up of what our brave men and women of The Navy Seals, and our other Special Forces; our people on the mission lives are compromised.

I’m not saying these people are giving secret information to terrorist groups, I am saying these people talk to journalists for political reasons which lead to news organizations reporting on where our troops are, and what there mission is by an undisclosed person who have knowledge to what the House and the Senate knows.

People like Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) need to shut-up and let our military to what they do with out Congress input of the strategic moves of what these brave men and women do each and everyday.

The Movie ‘Selma

After watching Selma, it kinda made me proud to be Black in America. The reason I used the word kinda, is because I’m not all the way there yet. When I watch what’s happening in today’s society in America, the movie depicts something a world apart from what’s taking place today.

As a person raised in the South in the early 1950s’, I witnessed things that let me know America has progressed in a big way since those days; however, the journey still have a long way to go.

Since Barack Hussein Obama became President, race relations in America have deteriorated. This deterioration by know means is the fault of President Obama, this deterioration became prevalent because the acts of a few who just couldn't live with the fact that a Black man is living in the White House.

During the push for equal rights for every American to vote, the majority of Americans were down with that; Whites stood shoulder to shoulder with Blacks. However, there are some today trying to turn the wheels of progress backwards.

I believe one of the most important actions that can bring this backward progress to an immediate halt, is for Black people to focus more on derailing Black on Black crime.

Let me go a little deeper on why I used the phrase, “I’m kinda proud to be Black in America.” I see White people participating in, and using racists terms and not cognizant of their actions. I see Black people not mindful that they are participating in acts, and saying things allowing Whites to believe that they accept themselves as second class citizens.

I believe if we as a people, I’m talking Blacks and Whites can come up with a dialog to respect the right to agree to either of us disagreeing; I think we can brake through this level of hate that a few have been successful at.

American Soldier Freed

Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is coming home because President Obama put an American soldier wellness ahead of playing politics with Republicans. American lawmakers are accusing the President of breaking the law for brokering a deal to gain Sgt. Bergdahl’s freedom.

Here’s what pisses me off with White people and misguided brainwashed coloreds, it’s President Obama’s fault for the death of four Americans who died in Benghazi; which was a bad thing. It’s President Obama’s fault for brokering a deal to bring an American captive soldier home from Afghanistan, which was a good thing; but yet the Obama haters are pissed.

Securing the release of Sgt. Bergdahl has nothing to do with whether or not the President over-stepped his authority, the haters will stay on their do anything to make the first Black President look bad simply because he’s living in the White House. These haters aren't hating on this President because they disagree with his policies, they’re hating because they just can’t live with the fact that it’s a Black man living in the White House.

Some of Sgt. Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers are accusing him of being a traitor and a deserter, that might prove to be true; however in our judicial system every citizen of our United States are presumed to be innocent until proven guilty.

What I really want to know is this, let’s just assume for a minute that Sgt. Bergdahl was a sympathizer for the people of Afghanistan; if this was your son or brother, would you say let’s just leave him there?

Brown vs Board of Education

My intentions were to comment on the racist New Hampshire Police Commissioner, but since yesterday was the 60th anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education landmark decision that de-segregated public schools; I decided on the latter.

I know back in 1954 Black leader’s intentions were good and were meant for the betterment of Black people. However, today situations have changed to the point that the majority of public schools are once again segregated. The reason why this is happening is irrelevant; the task at hand is to figure out how to go about funding inner-city public schools which are predominately Black, equivalent to suburban public schools which are predominately White.

Most knowledgeable Americans know, or should know that at least half or more of all property taxes go towards the funding of public schools; this is where the topic of any brainstorming should start when it comes to making all public schools equal.

Homeowners pay property taxes; the majority of homes are located in suburbia America, which leads to the better schools located in suburbia America. Inner-city schools receive mere pennies of those tax dollars which leads to the worst schools located in the inner-cities.

Since the Federal Government contributes the least to our public schools, I suggest the Federal Government subsidize the inner-city public schools to bring them equivalent to suburban schools funding.

I don’t think integration is the answer to our future world leaders to reach their GOD given potential, in my opinion separate and equal at least gives the students in the inner-city who didn't get a fair bite at the apple a chance to accomplish his/her potential.

There is no way any human being should continuously know that another human being is better off solely because of born privileges. Eventually the dumbest one will figure out something is not right with this. If we can’t lift all of our young people to realize that all of us are in this together; then we’re sending the wrong message.

I look at it like this, if we can find funding to build schools in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Palestine, Tripoli, and numerous of other foreign states and countries; surely the richest country on earth can find funds to make all of America’s schools separate and equal.

The kidnapping of hundreds of school girls in Africa wasn't a new event, those girls knew just by striving to get an education were placing their lives in danger; but they did it anyway. It’s high time for American students to stop taking something for granted that others risk their lives to get.
