When Prosecutors, Judges and Police Union Join Forces To Suppress

Photo by Tingey Injury Law Firm on Unsplash

Suppression is real, some are maimed while others are killed
when prosecutors, judges and police union seeks injustice
injustice the public gets, as cops shoot to kill, innocent or not
no answers to why forthcoming, crimes upheld by the court
as the public outcry for reform, refunding and accountability
hangs in the balance, as wrongs are denied in courts
wearing business suits, robe and gavel, covers the cops’ backs
when a tree dies, it must be rooted out, to replant
the legal system so corrupt by the wrong forces
like snakes slithering in the grass, much destruction
from city to…

How a product allegedly used deceptive marketing to communities of color

As a young kid, my mother used Johnson and Johnson baby powder, the world’s largest manufacturer of health care products, and I grew up liking the smell of it. It was refreshing and invigorating. Even as an adult, I continued the usage of J&J powder following the legacy set by my mother. We are a product of our environment and we do what we had been taught to do. I loved it so much that I used to sprinkle this powder on my mattress and sheets to inhale the smell while lying in bed. …

While no one wants to go back to the rules of yesterday where over 600,000 plus people died in this country from Covid-19, but to prevent another 600,000 from dying from Covid-19, Delta, and the many other variants that are springing up on every corner of the world, then mask off, now masks on again, is part of the solution. Vaccinated or not, leaders should lead by doing the right thing for humanity, families, and friends, and equally important oneself.

It wasn’t too long ago, that this country got the release from the most dreaded mask by President Biden has…


A poem about how to treat each other

Greet that family member, with a kiss, like a true friend
That true friend, with a kiss, like a family member to the end
That stranger, like a friend or family member
Even when their ways, morals, don’t resemble
Greet each other with respect and love from above
Welcome that stranger like you desire to be welcomed
for that stranger may become your best friend or confidant
for that stranger may be there to pick you up when you are down
for that stranger may become closer than a brother or sister and stick around
for that stranger may become your…

The public is just learning what African Americans have known for ages that the mistreatment of African Americans started from slavery and has continued until this very day. Much is coming to light due to the many public video tapings that have brought much-needed attention to what these officers have been doing far too long. Many wonder why African Americans men are so angry. They are angry because they are sick and tired of being treated worst than animals and/or less than being human.

Body-camera footage has confirmed to the world what African Americans have and are experiencing from day…


How the January 6 Insurrectionists stormed the Capitol as Trump watched in his private quarters with family and other officials

Today is the beginning of many more days in a month-long investigation seeking the truth behind the insurrectionists’ core, origin, and the real leader of these racist factions. America needs to know the truth and is entitled to find out the truth about those who initiated this horrific act. All need to be punished from the leader to the ill-informed followers. As adults, we are responsible for our actions and cannot blame others for wrongdoings. No one should escape punishment claiming they were following someone’s instructions. That is pathetic and does not hold water. When you do the crime, you…
