Full Moon Musings…1st July 2015

Just a few random thoughts and comments on this Wednesday…June was quite eventful across the country and around the world; July is beginning in much the same way.

Seven Black churches have been burned since Dylan Roof murdered nine people at Mother Emanuel on 16th June. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows that this is more racist terrorism. The “night riders” of the KKK have been doing this since the 1800s. This isn’t an attack on religion, as some would love to believe. The fires weren’t started by storms, they were started by members of StormFront and their ilk. Meanwhile, people who adore their heritage of treason, domestic terrorism, and racism are holding pro-confederate flag rallies and demonstrations, and violently attacking people who want to retire that flag to a museum where it belongs. The more paranoid flag-lovers are screeching and moaning, claiming that others “want to take our flag and heritage away!” No, no, and no, you silly, stupid shits. You have every right to fly that flag – on your own, individual, private property. Adorn yourselves with it; decorate your trucks and houses, get it tattooed on your faces. Let everyone know what hate-filled fuckwads you are. I mean, if it’s solely about Southern pride and “heritage,” then you shouldn’t need to hide your faces under your white, pointy hats, no?

Relations between Cuba and the U.S. seem to be moving forward, as embassies will soon be opening in Havana and Washington, D.C. The country of Greece is (once again) on the verge of financial collapse, due to defaulting on an IMF loan payment. The island of Puerto Rico struggles with a massive, $74 million (USD) debt.

The racism on the island of Hispaniola has been, however briefly, re-exposed as Haitian migrants, and Dominicans of Haitian descent, are being forced to leave the Dominican Republic due to some obscure court ruling in 2013.

Yes, I do pay attention to things beyond the border of my state and country…shocking, I know! Speaking of which, the girls abducted in Chibok, Nigeria, have been gone from their families and loved ones for 443 days. I’m still counting…

Nintendo is apparently making history by allowing same-sex marriages in a game. From the Huffington Post:

At last, the powerful warriors and wizards in Nintendo’s “Fire Emblem” franchise can be gay.

Gaming site Polygon reported Tuesday that players will be able to have same-sex relationships in the upcoming “Fire Emblem Fates,” a new entry in the strategy role-playing franchise that made its debut on the original Nintendo Entertainment System in 1990. A Nintendo spokesman confirmed this information to The Huffington Post.

“Fates” will be be released in two separate versions, “Conquest” and “Birthright.” Nintendo told HuffPost that each will feature a different same-sex coupling — male in one game and female in the other.

“In the Conquest edition of the game, there is a male character that the game’s player may have his/her male main character marry after they bond in battle. Similarly, the Birthright edition features a female character that a female main character may marry after bonding in battle,” a Nintendo spokesman told HuffPost, echoing the statement given to Polygon.

Having both same-sex relationships in the same game may eventually be possible, since Nintendo says there will be a downloadable component that opens up the content that both versions of the game lack.

For the uninitiated, relationships often play a central role in “Fire Emblem” games. Your characters can make friends and, in the case of the recent “Fire Emblem: Awakening,” hook up with characters of the opposite gender and make beautiful warrior children who travel through time and space to assist you in battle. (There will be procreation in “Fates,” but it’s unclear how this will pertain to the same-sex couples.)

Not bad, I suppose – but, The Elder Scrolls Online beat you to it, Nintendo! Same-sex marriage has been allowed in the game since it began, and same-sex relationships have been in the Elder Scrolls games as far back as ‘Morrowind.’

I’m happy to see marriage equality, personally. If you love someone, then you should be able to be with them – if you’re of legal age of consent, of course! Amidst all of the celebrations, however, there are some voices that need to be heard. This article, “Under The Rainbow,” is something that should be read by all. It was written by James Coco, a “Southern Bird of Paradise.” Here’s a small excerpt:

With it being Pride month again, I always try my hardest to feel some sort of elation over what should be a happy time. A happy time to celebrate history and where we, as a community, have been and where we are going. To celebrate the different things that bind us together, and what make us different and unique in our own right. To celebrate the people who flipped cars and rioted to make our present the reality it is, because without them, we’re nothing.

So, why do I feel so tired? So drained of energy and cynical about Pride Month? In the wake of rampant police brutality, the #CharlestonShooting and dozens of other anti-black incidents across America, I just don’t feel it.

Call me perpetually under the rainbow, but I just can’t vibe with one aspect of my existence being uplifted while another piece is reminded of its inhumanity every single day. I’m sure it’s been said before by many others on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, specifically those of color. Those who constantly have to deal with being erased, ignored and killed because of living intersectional existences plagued by racism. To watch black lives across the board get plagued by so much violence, institutional and through other means, is exhausting.

It happens every time a black person is slain by the police. There are mass protests, or some form of hugely racist injustice. I always look to the popular LGBTQIA+ outlets to maybe say or post something. I always expect some type of solidarity, since it should be understood that you can be black and LGBTQIA+ too…

Yep. Just as there is rampant racism online and in the gaming world, so it exists in other, ‘marginalized’ groups. Everybody needs a whipping boy – horrible pun, but there it is.

Finally, the people in upstate New York can rest a little easier, now that one felon is dead and the other is in custody – I was half-right about their expected capture. I’m not surprised that the prison superintendent, and 11 other prison employees, have been put on leave since this entire shady escapade began. I wonder what sort of so-called prison environment that was, to allow such fraternization between violent felons and prison employees? We may never know.

A Torrential Flood of Verbosity!

Wow – here it is, the New Year…2015, which marks the Year of the Sheep (19 February).

Much has been going on in the world and many of those events have been tragic, saddening, disheartening, enraging and dismaying. The white sniper in Pennsylvania was caught and taken into custody, alive and well…as expected. No surprise there. Michael Brown was laid to rest at the end of August, and his murderer was given a pat on the back and cleared of any wrongdoing in November. Eric Garner’s killer was also found to have ‘done his duty’ – but really, we all knew that was going to happen. The victims are getting younger and younger, too…in Cleveland, a 12-year-old boy was shot and killed by a cop for…what, exactly? Some sweaty neo-nazi on some ‘news’ show claimed that it was justified – but I didn’t see where there was any threat to the cop’s life on the tape that was aired. A woman in Seattle was beaten by police for no apparent reason other than the colour of her skin. A mentally challenged 17-year-old girl died after being arrested by police and they ‘detained’ her. A 17-year-old boy was hung in North Carolina and the claim was ‘suicide,’ but the knowledge that he had a relationship with a 31-year-old white broad, on top of every other inconsistency surrounding his death, makes it very suspect…it’s almost a given that he was lynched. The woman herself should be questioned, IMHO. There’s a whole lot of wrong goings-on, there…meanwhile, cops are pissed off that people are asking for justice and accountability, and screeching that those who do so are ‘anti-cop.’ Sounds like the equally ridiculous assertions made by racist fuckwads that ‘anti-racism is anti-white.’ Insanity abounds as people hold President Obama personally accountable for everything, yet will never demand that white politicians take responsibility for the KKK and their ilk. Mindless cop-supporters have the gall to hold up signs that say “Stop the Hate” – how fucking laughable is that? As far as I’m concerned, the police force in this country is a terrorist group, just like ISIS or Al-Qaeda; we already know that a majority of the officers are members of all-white ‘unions’ and other organizations. I thought we were fighting a ‘war on terror’ – why don’t we start doing that inside our own borders, first? Hell, on 6 January, some racist fuckwad set off a bomb behind NAACP headquarters in Colorado – why has nothing been done about that? This country was founded on genocide…why do people act as if that isn’t a factor in ALL of this? I hope many people are having open, honest discussions about this over this weekend leading up to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Yesterday, 15 January, marked his birth anniversary – he would have been 86 years of age.

Speaking of ‘terror attacks’ – and I see how redundant that term really is – the nation of France is being lauded as ‘strong’ and ‘heroic’ after some fanatics killed some employees of a satirical newspaper there. “Je Suis Charlie” is the new chant on everybody’s lips, and people worldwide march in solidarity for freedom of speech. At the same time, those who denigrate President Obama are castigating him for not being among those other leaders; personally, I commend him for not standing with hypocrites. Do you really believe that the leaders of Israel, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iran, or Pakistan give a flying fuck about freedom of speech?!? Countries where journalists are jailed, bloggers are caned, and women can’t ride a freakin’ bicycle in public – do you REALLY believe that the leaders of those countries stand for freedom of speech and expression? I write, and had journalistic aspirations in my youth, so freedom of speech is important to me. On the other hand, I wouldn’t shed a tear if a similar thing occurred at the FauxNews studios…a few less hate-mongers in the world would be a good thing, no? Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing, and I adore satire – MAD Magazine was my favourite for the ages! Speaking of satire, my biggest fan-troll tried to accuse me of not knowing what satire is, simply because I don’t like Seth McFarlane’s hateful, racist depictions of Black women. News flash, little troll: Racist stereotypes ain’t satire! Methinks you tried to project your ignorance upon me, and guess what…it didn’t work! Have patience, though – you will get a post solely dedicated to you, one of these days – I just haven’t been bored enough yet to shred your silly comments that you desperately attempt to post.

Digressing…hackers supposedly brought Sony studios to its knees and (almost) managed to stop a fully-produced movie from being released in theatres. I personally think that all of the hooplah was part of the biggest, most elaborate advertisement for a movie to date – let’s see how much they charge for the straight-to-DVD release; we know that Amazon.com will be the willing distributors, since they only want to prevent book sales…and speaking of Sony, how about that ridiculous cunt who decided to make some foul, racist statements about what movies she ASSumed the POTUS would prefer to watch – when caught, she did the typical white-trash move of begging Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for forgiveness. Um, hello? She should be begging President Obama, the First Lady, and Sasha and Malia for forgiveness! She insulted the First Family, not Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson!!! Neither of those men are the sole representatives of the ‘Black community’ – get a freakin’ clue! Ye gawds…and speaking of the First Family, I want to say a hearty “STFU!” to one Michael Huckabee. It’s nunya-fucking-beeswax what music Sasha and Malia listen too. Don’t get me wrong; I personally can’t stand Beyonce or anything she stands for – she certainly doesn’t represent me or any Black woman I know – but you know what? That isn’t the issue. Mike Huckabee should focus on his own family and kids! I fail to see how the President and the First Lady are reprehensible parents, simply because of the musical tastes of their daughters. Speaking of daughters, what music was played by Dubya and his unstable wife, Laura during their administration which led to their little angels, Barbara and Jenna, to go full-slut-hog-wild back in Y2K? There were some VERY scandalous images online at the time, but I think they now exist in the same plane as Dick Cheney’s home. Hell, Dick himself is most likely enjoying those very images as I type this!

Bill Cosby is being destroyed by allegations that are older than I am, by a woman who claims that he drugged and molested her when she was 15. Other women have since come forward with their own claims, which are fairly damning on their surfaces – who would have thought that Beverly Johnson would be one of those accusers? I have my own questions that I’d love to ask each accuser in person, but I won’t have the opportunity, and others won’t bother to think to ask them. So here they are: where were the parents of that girl? Cosby didn’t wave a magic wand or rub a lamp to get the girl in his proximity, so…how did she get there? She wanted to meet a celebrity and was willing to do anything, right? If women put themselves in situations because they’re seeking fame and fortune, then shouldn’t they take some personal accountability for being there in the first place? Similarly, all of those sluts who had nude pictures ‘accidentally’ leaked into cyberspace aren’t as indignant over their supposed loss of privacy as they claim – they are ‘actors,’ after all! No, women who make money by taking off their tops at the drop of a hat, or who are famous for making some pathetic sex tape that ‘accidentally’ gets ‘leaked’ on the interwebs, need to STFU and continue to use their mouths for what got them to the top in the first place…I have no sympathy. And don’t give me that ‘sisterhood’ bullshit, please! It doesn’t exist, much as I’d love to believe in it. Go ahead and accuse me of blaming the victim…I could care less. Rented opinions mean nothing to me. I will say that Mr. Cosby’s wife and daughters are the only women he need answer to and apologize to – period.

The race / colour debate continues to rage on…Idris Elba will play James Bond – and have shitloads of love scenes with white females. The new ‘Annie’ is Black…but of course, Jamie Foxx as “Daddy Warbucks” gets to have love scenes with a white woman. Black men still have no problems with being the ‘token,’ and Black women are seemingly undeserving of love – we simply get used, abused, and tossed to the side. Even more depressing are the writers and producers who claim to show the ‘Black Experience,’ yet they are SO “blinded by the white” – whether it’s someone’s skin colour or the substances they’re snorting or smoking – that they keep on keepin’ on with the same tired-ass, stereotype-filled themes. This opinion piece on Al-Jazeera scratches the surface of what I’m speaking about, but shows like ‘Empire,’ any of Tyler Perry’s shite, or the latest big-screen drivel such as ‘Lucy’ or ‘Jupiter Rising’ make me want to vomit with rage. Steady, Sepultura, steady…soothe thyself…

*SIGH* I think I’ll go to the battlefields of Cyrodiil and take my frustrations out on the avatars of others…it works.

Musings on the March on Washington’s 50th Anniversary

Wednesday, 28 August 2013, marked the 50th anniversary of the iconic and history-making March on Washington, D.C. on 28 August 1963. It was the day that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his legendary ‘I Have a Dream’ speech at the Lincoln Memorial. Today, a statue dedicated to him stands near the Jefferson and Lincoln memorials. If one cannot see the historical significance of that, as well as the irony, then that individual is severely myopic and suffers from a closed mind. I would say that about the people who downplay the significance of Barack Obama being POTUS, as well. If you consider the fact that it was virtually impossible for a Black person in this country to attain that position a mere 50 years ago, much less consider applying and/or running for it, then that is quite an accomplishment. But it doesn’t mean that racism isn’t a problem; it doesn’t mean that racism has miraculously been erased and eradicated, or that it isn’t still one of the most glaring social ills facing humanity.

I watch the footage from those bygone days, seeing how people from all backgrounds pulled together to face hate-based adversity and injustice, and wonder: “What the hell happened? When did people stop caring about what happens to their fellow man?” I see the racist prejudice and vitriol dripping from opinion pieces in papers and on blogs, and hear it in the incendiary words spewed by separatists on TV, the radio, and on YouTube or via internet ‘podcasts.’

I don’t believe that there is a ‘Black community’ – too many people of all shades and stripes keep echoing that falsehood, which is a separatist contrivance akin to Ebonics and the ‘one-drop rule.’ At one time, when the Underground Railroad was widely used (and necessary), there may have been a ‘Black community’ of sorts: but it dissolved when we scattered to the four winds after the Emancipation Proclamation was declared – but it was never really enacted. The insults of segregationist, Jim Crow laws, political gerrymandering, and legal lynchings seemed to drive us further apart. Other factors to include would be the destruction of entire towns with a Black populace, the hunting down of ‘freemen’ and ‘freewomen’ and returning them to slavery in the south, and the rape and murder of Black women and girls. The state we are in, here in the 21st Century, is better than it was 50 years ago – but only slightly. We seem to have made great inroads in the quest to be seen as people; to be judged ‘not by the colour of our skin, but by the content of our character’ – but when you step back and look at the bigger picture, we can see that mere baby steps have been accomplished and there is still a long way to go and much tougher ‘rows to hoe.’

For instance, it’s supposedly illegal to discriminate against others when choosing amongst job applicants: their skin colour, personal beliefs, country of origin, etc. One should only be judged on their ability to learn a specific job and to do the job well, not some fucked-up stereotype festering in the mind of the interviewer/employer. My personal experience has taught me otherwise! I have overheard people justify their so-called reasoning for only hiring whites for any given position at various corporate offices, and the reason was this: Non-whites, apparently, are “HR nightmares that nobody wants to deal with” so that is a perfect justification for not hiring us in the first place. I suspect that same ‘reasoning’ is behind the fact that we are “last hired, first fired” at those same offices. Imagine how well that ‘reasoning’ would be received if it were used to deny employment to a white, blonde woman, even if it were ‘justified’ – I can think of many reasons not to hire that sort, personally!

50 years ago: we had to drink from separate water fountains. The only jobs we could get were menial service positions, barely better than what was forced upon us as unpaid slaves – and that practice continues today. Certain areas of trains, restaurants, hotels, and movie houses were designated ‘for coloured only’ – and that was only if those places deigned to render service to us at all. In some parts of the country, toilets for ‘coloured’ people were poison-ivy infested paths which ended in a precarious drop if you missed the flimsy plank with rusted nails around the ‘sitting hole.’ Speaking of the term ‘coloured’ – isn’t it funny that the very people who forced that term on us, now say that we have no right to use it? I saw something like that on a blog not long ago – some white person was saying that the term ‘POC’ was “stupid and unnecessary.” I wonder what they thought of its usage during segregation? They never mentioned how the term came into being in the first place, but I guess it was just a convenient oversight on their part. Same goes with the term ‘Black community’ – imagine how silly people would sound if they started saying things like ‘the female community’ or ‘the Asian community’ or ‘the European community’ – for that matter, I challenge other bloggers to start doing that! Start talking about “the ills of (such-and-such) community” and see how dialogue changes! Do it IRL as well as online, since gauging people’s reactions up close and personal is what really counts.

50 years ago…I wasn’t alive during that turbulent time. My mother was weeks away from her ninth birthday, so I’m certain that she would have seen news reports on television. Sadly, strokes have robbed her of her memories. She might remember bits and pieces of events if I ask her, but it would take some time for her to recall anything – and it would take hours (or even days) for her to grasp at those fleeting recollections. The man who fathered me would probably remember a great deal more, if he wanted to take the time to talk to me and answer my questions…he was an adult and owned his own business at the time, so he certainly would have a vested interest in those long-ago events. I wonder if he attended…I should ask him – his answer would definitely be included in my book. Part of the issue with finishing my book is trying to find a good stopping point!

I digress…events leading up to, and following, the March are in history books – but not as many as are warranted. I wasn’t taught about the March in any school history classes; I had to learn about it by going to the local library, and only after the age of 12 did I start reading anything of pertinence, because the library didn’t allow children under the age of 12 into the upstairs, ‘adult’ section. Some books in the school library were more helpful and informative than my so-called ‘history teachers’ ever dreamed of being, so I looked to those books to find the answers. The assassination of Abraham Lincoln is always talked about, as is that of John F. Kennedy – but the reasons for the Civil War are obfuscated, slavery is glossed over, and the Civil Rights Movement is rendered nonexistent in most public (and private) schools. Educating oneself about all events in this country’s history should begin as early as possible, and it is an education that should last for the rest of one’s life. Events of 50 years ago are important and significant. The fight that began before those events is still being fought today, but the rules have changed. Claiming the small victories and saying that the war is won was premature. Fighting to use certain words isn’t what the March on Washington was about – people reducing it to that is sad and shameful, indeed.

A Young Man Is Dead.

Trayvon Martin: 5 February 1995 –  26 February 2012
 
Rekia Boyd: (can’t find month/day) 1989 – 21 March 2012

I’m speechless and nauseated right now.  A young man is dead.  This was going to be a long post, but there is so much to say…I try to write and just get overwhelmed with pain.  I’m really sickened over this issue, and am so tired of hearing people justify the cold-blooded, semi-premeditated murder of an unarmed, 17-year old young man.  A modern-day lynching, carried out by a paranoid, racist, wanna-be cop who designated himself judge, jury, end executioner.  A ‘vigilante-type’ who took the law into his own hands.  What’s even sadder is that, as I write this, there have been at least three other, similar murders carried out across the country.  There’s a pathological infection going around, and it seems to getting worse by the day.  People are getting murdered; the main thing that connects them is the color of their skin – and in this country, that can’t be written off as some odd coincidence.  Worse are the race-baiting comments that are landing on news sites and blog pages – pathetic attempts by psychopathic individuals to justify the unjustifiable.  Painting murder victims as criminals: Trayvon Martin.  Rekia Boyd.  Kenneth Chamberlain.  Aaron Campbell.  The list goes on.

From CNN:
Editor’s note: Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson is the author of “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration.” One of the migrants documented in the book, George Swanson Starling, fled Florida for New York in 1945 after a standoff in the citrus groves, where he sought fairer wages for black pickers from the grove owners for whom they worked. The standoff — in Sanford, Florida — set in motion a plan to lynch him.

(CNN) — Isolated in the moment, the shooting death of Trayvon Martin may seem a singular tragedy: a teenager mistaken for a criminal by an overzealous neighborhood watchman armed with a gun and backed by a state law that gives greater latitude to people to defend themselves when they feel threatened.

But that moment in February in the central Florida town of Sanford was steeped in a history that has haunted the state, the South and the country for generations.”
