The Sandra Bland Arrest

by MullOverThis

The dashcam footage which has been released can be “read” both ways.

With the greater onus on law enforcement, it is clear that this arrest did not have to take place, was a play on authority, and should not have happened. It is also extremely possible that this arrest is NOT illegal, although it is textbook bad police work.

On Sandy Bland

by MullOverThis

Sandy Bland was murdered.

Howw do we know? Because her family said she would have never killed herself.

SM justice kicks in, and of course, bandwagon situationalists were already on the mountain rolling downhill, so they stopped right at this here blatant murder, which leaves me with a few questions:

1. Had Ms. Bland’s prior attempt to kill herself-last year-worked, who would they have to blame? Who would be the murderers?

2. What “work” has been accomplished since she attempted to kill herself over the loss of a baby in 2014 such that it is impossible for Ms. Bland to not have done it to herself, this time?

3. There have been several statements made by people who did not know Ms. Bland, but don’t miss any bandwagon events. There is a claim that she was not depressed. Who, exactly, is the woman in the YouTube video posted 4 months ago that spoke of her depression and battle with PTSD? Did the “set up” people pick a look-alike, tape it, post it online months ago, and then follow her until the day of her arrest and stage the entire confrontation to get her into police custody so they can murder this activist and use the excuse of depression and suicide to cover up and assassination?

4. Since when do other people declare what people are not, when the people in question have spoken themselves about what they are battling, mentally?

5. How successful would suicidal people be, if they were fully forthright with suicidal tendencies? How many people who survive the suicides of loved ones already knew their loved ones were capable of suicide? Is it possible at all that a woman who was in jail for 3 days with only a $500 bond who placed calls to numerous persons and not one of them posted bond immediately, who had been unemployed, just got a great position, also got a “fresh” assault charge to fight which certainly poses a problem for starting a new job, and just tried to do what her family thinks was beyond her a year earlier could possible have committed suicide?

We may NEVER know what really happened to Ms. Sandra Bland. I am not willing to dismiss significant recent mental history and her dialog with others who were in jail (witnesses) to believe that Ms. Bland was murdered.

There are several memes and of course, hashtags branding #ifidieinpolicecustodyididntkillmyself.  I just want to know for those who are on this bandwagon, how many suicide attempts have you had in the recent past?

Amber Roof Solicits Funds: Another GoFundMe Bungle

by MullOverThis

Yup. You have read correctly.  Michael and Amber had their dreams halted, smashed, crumbled, and upset by the public shame and bombastic inconvenience her brother caused her when he decided to execute 9 human beings on the basis of race. While the nation is mourning from a hate crime which impacted the entire Charleston, South Carolina area and people who have been terribly reminded that racist venom is still vicious enough to cause a 21 year old deluded man to end the lives of innocent people, let’s not forget the other ills and consequential damages:  this lunatic’s sister is also suffering with the loss of everything she hoped and dreamed for in planning her nuptials.

See, I can understand her pain.

Truly, I can. Who can’t empathize with her having to see her brother arrested and have to face the inevitable justice system which is going to put him away for the majority of his adult life? Who can’t empathize with the horror the entire Roof family probably felt in knowing that they are connected to such a depraved human being–a loved one? But, with all of the grace we must have, we also should help fund this tootsy pop’s wedding and relate to her devastation.

Only in America, can someone have such boldness and insensitivity to even think it’s a good idea to go raise wedding money when your brother has literally terrorized a nation with a hate crime of this magnitude. Of all of the things that have transpired–massive peaceful protests, government entities addressing the Confederate flag and the ills of the wicked influences that infiltrated this brother of this nincompoop, ordering grave stones, coffins, writing obituaries, re-structuring family life from day-to-day, mourning the loss of loved ones, re-building the faith in a community and leadership in a long-standing congregation–let’s not forget this clown’s interests cut from the most pungent narcissistic depraved indifference to human life pie ever made: poopy deserves her wedding.

There really is nothing more to say to this one, other than I wonder what the rest of this Roof family has to face in the aftermath of what Dylan Roof has done. Let’s hope missing the annual berry picking contest or losing Dylan’s worth as the one who takes out the kitchen garbage isn’t on their list.

So, GoFundMe has had to knock off another unethical campaign grounded in absolute lunacy.

DeathWhileBlackbyBlack

by MullOverThis

Roxane Gay wrote an Op-Ed piece for the NY Times addressing why she can’t forgive Dylan Roof.

While the massacre of 9 people has led to a plethora of issues and campaigns on the “back” of such a tragedy, many are focused on discerning the underlying and recognizing the all so obvious racial under and overtones of major players in the status of race relations in America. Interestingly, Sis. Gay has been inspired to write this piece with the very relevant context that although she is not immediately connected to the people or events from this shooting, her Blackness and humanity put her in the very place to be unforgiving: certain things are beyond forgiving.

This article should NOT be ignored. It expresses the very reason that those who cannot fully “gel” with this #Blacklivesmatter movement are resistant.  What Dylan Roof has done is “beneath her contempt”.

I wonder if Black men in a Philadelphia shooting 3 children and 7 adults is beneath her contempt. What “factors” make deliberate actions taken by gunmen to wilfully take lives–whether their shots are successful or not–ace the meeting of this standard?

The color of the gunman’s skin?

The color of the body bags?

The repeated history of unjust killings?

The fact that these patterns of unjust killings continue without end?

When DeathwhileBlackbyBlack occurs what do the answers to the foregoing questions look like? They do not differ when families are mourning their lost loved ones. Hypocrisy is a wicked character trait and is dangerous when one has a voice to fuel it in others.

How is it that since Dylan Roof executed those 9 people in South Carolina, there have been 3 mass shootings of BLACK PEOPLE where murders have been committed, and these events are “normal” news reports?  Because some people have the same make-up of Roxane Gray. They are moved beyond moved when racial animus is involved. The world flips upside down and evil and the “unforgivable” take place when once again, White people continue to do what White people have historically done.

MullOverThis does not expect any SM banter about we must remember the names of those wounded or killed in any of these 3 murders sprees injuring numerous Black people. These very defendents will automatically be defended by the school to prison pipelines, disenfranchisement of the Black family, privitization of prisons meant to keep Black men shooting their own so the prisons can be filled with lifetime felons, and every over-arching institutionalized racism reason as justifications for why we can “SMH”, “Wow”, “that’s so sad”, “We need to do more for our youth”, “We need some more programs to give Black men hope” and every other empassioned commentary in instances of #deathwhileblackbyblack. There will be no memorial and review of who these people shot actually were.  Why?  Because they are the very ones who we visit in jail, love, and “pray for”, not issue unforgivable justifications why the very same act another commits, makes the other unforgivable.

It is clear as day that all of these ills need to include prejudice and hypocrisy. If Dylan Roof is “unforgivable” solely on the basis of his White racist-ness, then all of these other Black murderers out to be the same on the basis of their Black self-hatredness and terrorism to their own.

It is clear as a warm sunny sky that many people hate racism more than they love their own. Their own perish daily, in like manner, but…there is no need to pen articles about the unforgivable acts of Black men who assassinate their own families, associate, friends and those they do not know.

You don’t even have to be religious to forgive. You definitely don’t have to be religious to be appalled by unjust treatment when race is involved, HOWEVER the pendulum swings when a lethal weapon is in the hands of an assailant who kills without cause.

All Black lives matter, not just the ones unjustly taken by White people or police brutality.

Wait A Few Cotton Picking Minutes

Cotton picking minutes are still minutes.

It’s just that these kind of minutes are hard and longer minutes to those who pick cotton, or understand the intensity of working in bondage and heat as captives.

Rachel Dolezal is under fire for identifying herself as part Black. She has assumed the identity of a Black woman and all of a sudden, this is a problem.

Now, when mixed-race people identify themselves as part Asian, or Tiger-Woodish, they are self-hating Black folk. Tiger Woods is NOT Asian! Not when he looks at the Asian momma who raised him, as Asian as she is and as Asian as her womb was when she pushed him out. He’s Black because he has dark skin and his daddy is a Black man. His racial identity has to be Black, regardless of his reality and environment.

The Mariah Carey’s and Halle’s of this world “better” not think they are White or Caucasion by the historic iota of a drop of Negro blood legal roots and its corresponding imprint in cultural norms to define a person’s race. Some social constructs have chains with locks that work to bind and to free depending upon the agenda. Don’t deny your heritage, and don’t identify with another when folks died for you to be who you are based upon your identity.  Whites and Blacks both seem to take issue with people who are “visibly” Black and want to think of themselves as anything other than Black. Self-hatred and Sell Out mentalities are the next in line notions, aren’t they?

What exactly is the problem here? This woman’s parents identify themselves as Caucasions. It logically follows that all of their natural born children ARE White and should identify themselves as such. Of course it does. And it historically, educationally and culturally follows that Africa is the “mother” of civilization. These same Black folks who have a twisted chip flavored with a mesquite bitter root Black bark on one shoulder conveniently forget the other shoulder’s claim–with strength I might add–that Black people are the ones who White people come from anyway. Illogical, contradicting weights on shoulders has to make a person tired. Real tired. And, dizzy. Black definers just may want to sit down and catch thy heads and thoughts, and bring them to an equilibrium so we can at least know who is truly qualified to be culturally, ethnically, socially or racially Black in America.

racheldolezal

A professor who has studied and now teaches Black studies should espouse her motherland heritage. At what point in her lineage does she get to chop off her motherland roots head and Blackness from her forefathers and foremothers? Do the same intelligencia, comics and commentators who call Negroid, Black, Colored, or African American people sell outs because they don’t speak with an urban vernacular, they aren’t Black, even though they are very Black, get the privilege to set the point? No, Rachel can set it for herself. She is qualified.

Oreos aren’t Black.

Sell outs aren’t Black.

People who don’t agree that Mike Brown could not have been shot in the chest while running away from cops or keep his hands up with multiple gunshot wounds, aren’t Black.

People who don’t want to use #Blacklivesmatter hashtags ONLY when crimes against Blacks committed by Whites take place, but notice Black lives in black body bags when Black folks kill or maim each other aren’t Black.

When Black people aren’t Black, and White people aren’t Black unless it’s time to argue that Jesus is Black and civilization began with Negroids producing all spectrums of skin-colored human beings, it seems to MullOverThis that its high time for Rachel to be Black.

She has been passing or legitimately Black for years. Her record for passing isn’t nearly record-breaking; she would have had to have been like her Black sisters who passed for Whites for years because they wanted the privilege of being free and enjoying “White privilege” and sheer freedom when their darker-skinned blood didn’t have this shade-bred option.

Since most Black people think the NAACP is about Negroidism as opposed to working to advance the equal rights of all people in America with commitments to work for those who cannot represent themselves and have been historically underrepresented and oppressed, the front man and now “woman” is supposed to be Black. Well, she is Black by many standards of what constitutes “Blackness” when ignorance is bliss and an operating welcome mat from the most educated and prolific to gin and juice drinking Black people in America is placed at the Black front door.

Anybody who’s down with the cause is usually Black, right? If it isn’t, when did that change?

Her regional NAACP presidency is not reserved for Black people. It’s reserved for qualified people: the same kind of qualified people who began the NAACP who were not Black and were Caucasion. The board of the NAACP looked like the Civil Rights movement constituency: Black, White and people who were committed to equitable human rights in America for all people.

So, Mrs. Rachel, welcome to the table you’ve been setting with advocacy and education while critics have been upgrading remote functions to yell at flat screen televisions and pick their nostrils. People who are about that life don’t really care how you identify yourself or if your mama stepped out with Mr. Bill, or not.

The Puerto Ricans who have never been to Puerto Rico and identify themselves with their culture won’t ever undergo such scrutiny; Neither would any legitimate Black person who had White enough skin to pass and was raised among a bunch of White children and naturally saw herself as the same.

Rachel, if your racial classification is a lie on the basis of social constructs, the acknowledgement of the evolution of the human race to produce these constructs is a lie. I’m quite confident that you don’t convince yourself that you are one of “them” when you look at your husband, children or siblings who look just like you.

You are Black enough for me and many other women who were born to a White parent and had to dilute Whiteness–as if that is the pure standard–and be deemed Black or other. Whatever you consider yourself to be, be that and work for the equality of all people.

If Ann Coulter gets a weave with red and pink strands, we will have to re-write civilization.

Inmate Dies From Heart Attack During Execution Process

by MullOverThis

If I wanted to kill an ant with a hammer and the hammer defaulted during the first strike but injured the ant enough to cause it to die, do you think I’d halt killing another ant in close proximity to conduct an investigation on the hammer to make sure it will kill the other ant perfectly the next time around?  Nope. MullOverThis surely would not. I’d swish, swash and swap again and again to get rid of the ants, permanently.

But ants are not human beings and do not require humane executions. These two Oklahoma criminals sentenced to death are still human beings and may be sorrowful for the crimes they committed years ago. My heart goes out to them and those who suffered the loss of loved ones.

On Charles Ramsey, the Amanda Berry Hero

by MullOverThis

Okay.

Three women were held hostage for approximately, nearly, roughly a decade. Charles Ramsey is the primary person with enough courage to respond to Amanda Berry’s screams. His swift action serves as intervention to end the horrific experience for three women and a surviving child.

Now, hoity toity ignoramuses with some measure of respectability because they “got demselves some learning” dare to comment on Charles Ramsey’s teeth or lack thereof, matted hair and ghettoism.

Really?

How does it become a media ploy against black folks and stereotyping a Black man when a news reporter interviews a completely relevant witness who happens to be straight up ghetto? Should a media person have the wherewithal to think, “Hey, this dude is a hot mess ghetto negro and maybe we should find a suited Harvardite to represent the Black race to speak on behalf of his heroism.”

You cannot please banana peel everything-is-slippery-and-an-offense-to-Black-folk Negroes. A blogger even surmised whether Mr. Ramsey would have done the same thing for a black woman. These Negroids think so hard that their logic breaks the common sense meter and registers in Duhville.  Does anyone think that a man-who didn’t know women lived in the house with the man with whom he ate barbecue-knew that the cries were from a pretty white woman?  Did he see a pretty white woman before he left his home?  Or, did he decide to be a hero when he saw Amanda Berry?  Some folks just need medication.

Charles Ramsey has ears. He heard a woman screaming. Charles Ramsey has a heart. He felt an impulse to aid one who appeared to be in emergent need. Charles Ramsey has guts. Unlike many educated Negroes who rationalize why they cannot get involved, Charles dared to help a woman. Charles Ramsey has strong legs. He used them to get “hisself” over to the house where he heard the screams and kicked the door down.

So all pristine negroid clowns who are embarrassed by Charles Ramsey, HE DOES NOT REPRESENT YOU. He represents a wider class of people who are selfless enough to do the right thing and this class of people is universal.

Mary Mary

by MullOverThis

So Mary Mary has their own reality show.

Arguably, Christians should not have “Christian” themed reality shows.  They may do more harm than good.

MullOverThis has a firm opinion about Mary Mary’s show:  they need to be real careful about towing the line.

A loud bossy woman who ain’t gonna be told what to do by no one, “but Jesus the Christ,” is not cute.  No man should have a pregnant wife who climbs on chairs while pregnant because she is obsessed with trying to compensate for her heavy workload by giving a perfect birthday party, can’t be told to stay her butt home when she is carrying his child, and the world shouldn’t think this is cute and in order.

I love Mary Mary’s music.  But, I am one who really isn’t interested in seeing too much more of an out of control “control freak” who is going to say what she wants, when she wants, and no one is going to tell her what she can say, televised while singing about Jesus.

Oh, although they clearly sing about Jesus, these two feel the need to make sure everything is perfect with big opportunities like singing for the Bishop T.D. Jakes and Oprah Winfrey.  Really? Really??  Really???  Really (100 question marks.)

Since when is it so important to a “career” that these folks smile, wink, and offer a standing ovation to know that one has been effective in MINISTRY?  Oh yeah.  That may not be the objective.  I can’t make conclusions for Mary Mary.  However, their geekedness with the who’s who is frightening. God puts up, and God determines when the career is halted.

I will be praying for these two.

Mary Mary.  I hope these two learn to truly emulate the Mary’s of the Bible and focus on Christ.

2012 Election Akin to 1980’s Basketball

by MullOverThis

On the last post, I unintentionally lied.

This post may be the shortest unofficial political pundit blog post.

This election is going to be a neck and neck finish between Romney and NObama.  There is going to be a great upset, so watch the polls up to the last minute.  We’re going to have to wait like we did when the buzzer rang down to the last second  in the last quarter of some of the best NBA games during the 1980’s.

The ONLY reason I hope Romney wins is because he cannot possibly be any more useless than NObama.  I hope the Romney teams oversaturates social media networking because that is the means by which many people will be influenced.  At least those that aren’t just gung-ho because there is a model African American family in the White House.  Those nincompoops just need to back track and get the Cosby Show series if they can’t find it in their own homes, or at least somewhere on the block.

Sarah Palin Type Election Debacle in 2012

by MullOverThis

This might be my shortest unofficial political pundit blog post.

What does Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney have in common?  Diarrhea of the tongue.  Talking-which is a requirement for a political candidate-revealed their mentality, or lack thereof.  Diarrhea of the tongue is the disease that killed McCain’s chances in 2008 because pretty girl down-home dingbatism for the soccer mom caused her racial underpinnings and astounding lack of world knowledge to force anyone who planned on making it to 2012, to cast a non-Palin vote.  Obama is going to prevail by default, because Mitt Romney’s diarrhea of the tongue has an awful odor about him, and to clean it all up, folks who are disgusted with Nobama will be forced to make sure at the very least, Romney stays at home.

Never mind, the “47 percent” commentary is taken out of complete context to the point where folks are blatantly saying Romney does not care about the poor.  When folks who love loading social policy onto economic reality and ignore the weights and balances, this grand old United States of America will continue to plummet in our economic ratings and standings in the world economy.
