...got a moment?  you REALLY might wanna should watch the 2 videos immediately below.  this crap ain't no joke... 
Don't know where I came from before I got here...and don't know where the hell I'm goin' when I leave.

All I know is that I'm here with a BUNCH of "Others"...many of whom make absolutely NO DAMN SENSE to me.

Bottom line--'Figure it out presently-here "Humans". 

Don't Blow it up. 

That'd be selfish, rude...and STUPID. 

It ain't yours to destroy...

Make it better.  Pass it on.  That simple.

...it could really happen. The idiots are every damn where.  Little kids in grown up bodies... all over the planet...with power they in no way should have. 

ON ALL SIDES...
Those of us in later years? It's been... "interesting".  For the Young who dig bein' here?  Hey, remember this moment... and if the dumb old bastards DON'T blow it up this time? 

Be DETERMINED to NOT ALLOW dumb-asses to get anywhere near "power"... ANYWHERE ON THE PLANET, going forward.

HERE'S THE TRICK:  Look at the bastards seeking "power" and try to picture what kind of little kids they were.  Who would they be in their young adult years.  You could probably tell from back then... they were prone toward being "assholes"... or just... "off"...

AVOID 'EM.  Can you imagine Tucker Carlson at 12?  Smart-ass little twerp.  And a little Putin?  "You'll see, I'll get even...and MORE!..."  Trump?  ... and on and on. 

Point?  You wouldn't want to hang out with them, FOLLOW them then(unless of course---"you"?...uh,...jus' sayin')...    So, why the hell would you want them leading you now? 

Ted "Do you know who I am" Cruz?  Huh?

In other words--World over... look for the "balanced".  Pay closer attention to who we allow to lead. 

And whatever you do, don't be a weak "follower".  They want to do war?  Take over another country?  Play encroach games to piss someone off?  Then pretend they had nothing to do with getting them riled up?  

Paraphrasing from Carl Sandberg's original really cool thought: "What happens if there is a "declared" war--and nobody shows up?"

We're capable.

Here's one for you: "Best Words of Wisdom I've heard about all of this recent crap comes out of Africa."

An afterthought jus' hit me...

..will Africa be the last Man/Woman standing?  Will the Birthplace of all Humankind, ironically,  be where Man(and Woman) rises from the Ashes? Again? 

Is Africa what God meant when it was said: "...and the meek shall inherit the Earth?"

And for me?  And all Black Americans?  Our ass is grass.  Blowed up...
'jus' like all the damn White Nuke Warriors and their serious-face "talks"...then WAR!!!

'Remember:  'plant them feets strong  and grab them ankles, firmly!

5:36 am--up all night, this thought just hit me:

The "little" addition of the word "too" might give the best insight as to why I wanted to puke 'first time I heard about a movement called "BLACK LIVES MATTER". 

Simply add the word "too", as in "also"...

If the pitifully weak, helpless, nature of the natural addition/continuation of "too" doesn't bother you?  While we both may be Black Americans, we are not the "same".  

It's not even a question.  And it is not something I would lay on any Black child that I'd have any association with.  Damn sure would not be something in my household. 

I'd be willing to bet my last dollar, that that sorry-ass phrase never came up in Malcolm X's house. Or, hell...new Supreme Court Justice; The Honorable Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Both are examples of Human Beings who lived/live the assumption.

"I cannot recall a single time in my childhood in which I cared about the slights and misperceptions and underestimations that came my way. What I do remember is often thinking, 'Hmm; well, I’ll show them.” 
--Said by Ms. Jackson while while accepting a Black Law Students Association award in 2020.

BUT!   





...it's complex as hell.
'Love that those who have problems with Elon Musk have taken to calling Mr. Musk an "African American". It's their "cute" way of denying him "American" roots/identity/"standing". Kinda happens when someone--or group of someones-- rock the claimed-by-what's-left-of-the-overseers---"American" boat.  

But in fact,  Mr. Musk IS an "African" American.  He was born in Africa.   And come to America.   Elon Musk IS a "REAL"  African-American. 

And, conversely,  Those Been-Here-since-before-the-Mayflower "Black Americans"?  ...ain't. 

In Truth, most of us are "mutts" of one sort or another.  And our "roots", culture, history, Ancestors, "KINFOLK"(that we know)... are deep rooted here,  in this land, commonly known as "America".  Our "unique, original and specific "tribe" evolved HERE.  

Next to the Original "Native" Tribes, Blacks that go back to over 400 years are the most indigenous people of this land.  REGARDLESS of what we are called. 

Scores of countries, nations, have been born around the world since we came to inhabit and evolve in this land.  Criminally kidnapped, stolen and put into forced labor or not... we have been here for every second of "America"--BEFORE "America". 

And don't start talkin' Truth about what kind of criminal and other kind of mixin' and matin' and "stuff" went on along the way.  Most "been here" from git Americans, if Truth be told...are mutts.  And WE, Native Black Americans,  are the "muttyest". 

Just look at your damn "Family" when you all get together.  Mutts. 

Hell, even Dr. Martin Luther King smartly stated, "The (American)Negro knows very little of Africa".  And he was correct. Most never been, won't be goin', and don't know a real damn thing ABOUT "Africa".  Hell, too busy survivin' and figuring out "America". 

Oh, I could go on... and I probably will.  But for the moment, this will suffice.  It's late, I'm workin' on a few 1ManFlix movie intentions.  And very aware I'm runnin' out of time. 

"African American"?  Got about as much interest and use for it as "Black Lives Matter".   Both are parades I ain't marchin' in.

... BUT ALSO, APPARENTLY,  THE POLISH WOULD NOT LET THEM IN...

...ADD TO THAT THE JEWS IN ISRAEL WOULD NOT LET ETHIOPIANS IN FOR A SHARED HOLIDAY IN THE "HOLY LAND"?!... 

DAMN, REAL IS REAL... WHY SHOULD I GIVE A DAMN. 

JUST THREW MY HANDS UP... ONLY A DAMN FOOL WHO IS BLACK WOULD GO OVERBOARD FOR ANY GROUP OF FOLKS WHO REMIND OF THE WORST OF AMERICA... HELL, WORST OF THE WESTERN WORLD. 

I'm still pullin' for Future Generations to get their sh--together...but... kumbaya all I want... there's too many inhuman humans(small "h") runnin' around to ignore... and a bunch of 'em are wearin' suits and claimin' leadership status...
