Broken America – Ferguson Missouri – Murder by the State




America is going nowhere fast. A half a century after the basic struggles for civil rights of African Americans in federal legislation lags behind and is basically forgotten all across the old Jim Crow South with new restrictive voter right acts designed to impede voting by the young, the old and along the color line.

While I would not like to be confronted by a gorilla sized petty thug like Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri, I do not understand how in a so-called civilized country how a cop can lose an entire clip of bullets in pursuit and summary execution of a “Jaywalker” “blocking traffic” in the streets of Ferguson Missouri. 

How a cop who kills a eighteen year old kid can blow town and go to Disney World for some R & R and not face the music of his actions while the local Ferguson PD is doing everything in its power to obscure the real issue here – the murder of a Black American citizen by a cop with a license to kill - is way beyond my pay grade.

Some facts are emerging why there is a town like Ferguson with 70% black population and a 90% white police force. The cops do not have to live in Ferguson. They have no investment or interest in the community. It is just a job. The people of Ferguson obviously do not count in their Ayn Rand like equation of life.

That in a period of as little as 15-20 years, the demographics, for whatever reason, went from white to black. Which makes me think that at least half of the white policemen on Ferguson’s police force started in a white town and now are just, in this suck ass American economy, just holding on for a pension no matter what it takes in terms of keeping loyal only to the core brotherhood of cops. 

Cops who in recent years have been outfitted with Pentagon war materials and dress for occupying a foreign country to push a corporate agenda and not the human agenda. That dressed in aggressive warlike kit and gear only makes our domestic police more of an occupying force in our local communities.  It is a serious disconnect from reality but what a paradigm shift of the importance of a global corporate spreadsheet philosophy over people and or humanity – what that really means when you look at it honestly.

I do not like outside people like the Reverend Al Sharpton, a snake oil meal ticket for life preacher type showing up on the scene. If African Americans have no better leaders to look to, perhaps it is time to pack up and move back to Africa for a better deal in having someone look out for your interests in the decimated and tribe warring and corporate resource gutted continent of Africa that is presently on the world stage. 

It is the same type of corporate culture of greed and inhumanity that sent so many into slavery in the first place starting four hundred years ago. A vicious circle perhaps.

Nobody can represent your interests on an individual scale or a cultural scale other than yourself. It is time for African-Americans to gather together, to work and vote their way out of poverty and ignorance like every other slice of American culture and their ongoing struggle of such.

Ted Cruz’s White Cuban Racism Shapes American Foreign Policy on Immigration




Ted Cruz besides being a native born Canadian is not Hispanic or Latino and you never hear those terms from the right’s Fox Propaganda Machine used for him.

Ted Cruz is the traditionally racist white Cubano. “Cubano Blanco”. Not a cigar.

Castro when he went Commie, brought down institutional Racism in Cuba in terms of access to education and social services for the black Cubans kept at the bottom of Cuban society for centuries – but that ingrained national traditional racism still exists in Castro’s Cuba.

The words of hate coming out of Ted Cruz’s Mail Order Preacher Certificate dad's mouth against Obama is nothing but traditional centuries old Cuban Racism trying to keep the blacks slaves down in Cuba and inferior to the so-called white Spaniards at the top of the Cuban social heap. 

I have heard before from Hispanics that say they don’t like to travel through Miami’s airport for fear of having to spend any time there and have to encounter the traditional white Cuban (my shit don’t stink) attitude, the degree of venom delivered depending on race and color of the Spanish speaking person wandering the airport, asking for directions, in search of some decent human interface but all they get is that my shit don’t stink Cuban white racism instead.

The GOP had lumped all the Latinos and Hispanics together and think that they are stupid enough to vote for a Cuban like Rubio or Cruz and quite frankly, Latinos and Hispanics can smell the cat under the “friendly” dog overcoat of Cuban American and Cuban Canadian politicians like Rubio and Cruz.


Traditional Cuban racism leeches out in every move, word, Ted Cruz makes against immigrants that are not white and not “pure” Cuban.
