I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the “Black family”. No, not the “normal” thoughts that seem to prevail. Not the thoughts of Barack Obama when he blamed Black men for not showing up for their families, their children. He’s not the only one. Years ago Bill Cosby said the same thing. There have been … Continue reading Thoughts on “The Black Family”
This was originally done as a post on Facebook, in reply to denials that racism still exists. A name was mentioned in the FB posting. This original posting was done to support attacks being directed at her as a Black woman. Her name has been changed to XXXXX. I think that too many people don't … Continue reading Thoughts on Racism…
I posted this earlier to an Antiracist chat group I created on Facebook. I'm open to hearing your thoughts. A friend, who is also a member of this group (who can say "it was me" if they choose to), asked on a separate thread: Can Black people be racist? Frankly, it's a hard question and … Continue reading Hard Questions
I posted this earlier to an antiracist group I started on Facebook. I've taken out the names of the others involved. They can choose to be public. It's not up to me to expose them. A conversation today: "All lives matter". David's response? "Yes they do". (and a tease, all news stories need a good … Continue reading David’s Day
Or perhaps more accurately, what has David been doing? It's possible that some of you have wondered why I haven't written much lately. I know a friend did ask, specifically about why I've been quieter on Facebook. Actually, I haven't, I've just moved to a different forum. So what have I been doing? The answer … Continue reading Where is David?
This originally appeared on Facebook in response to a question as to whether it was racist for a police officer to have a clipboard with the words "Blue Lives Matter" on it. ___________________________________ I can't speak to this particular officer's mind or what is in his heart. I don't know who you saw so I … Continue reading Thoughts on Police….
This was originally posted to the Uncensored Melrose Community page on Facebook. It's a follow-up to my last two entries here. ________________________________________________________ First, I want to say thank you. I don’t know who drew on “my” corner, who wrote these words to Melrose, to me. My friend, City Councilor Jack Eccles, sent me the photo. … Continue reading More on “Who Is David”
Quite simply, disassociating from whites committing crimes and assignment of blame to a group, a race, when the crime is committed by a Black? Hypocrisy. Racism. How can it be labeled any other way?
Is the darkness viewing my blog tonight? I wonder. I've had more page hits from a single user than ever before. Yeah, I see the stats. Is it the darkness? The hate? You see, I've publicly and loudly declared who I am on a public forum here in Melrose, MA. Said it to the trolls, … Continue reading The Darkness
I can't. I can't do it. I can't raise my fist. See, for me, a raised fist, it comes from The Black Panther Party and is a symbol of Black Power. When I'm out holding my, or signs, I have a lot: "I Can't Breathe #BLM""I Will Not Turn the Other Cheek #BLM""Police Matter. So … Continue reading A Raised Fist
