When Prosecutors, Judges and Police Union Join Forces To Suppress

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…


A snapshot of how one man single handily started a cinematic revolution

In reality and everyone knows Melvin Van Peebles as the Black filmmaker, novelist, and playwright whose audacity and rebelliousness were exemplified in his work which has influenced generations of artists.

Some of Melvin Van Peebles works are getting a renewed release to the public notably his best-known film, 1971’s “Sweetback’s Baadassss song”, set for a 50th-anniversary tribute this weekend at the New York Film Festival, his Tony-nominated play, “Ain’t Supposed to Die a Natural Death” to be revived on Broadway next year, his debut feature film, and 1968’s…


A poem about how a big lie became reality

The Big Lie was first a green snake
The Big Lie then became a rattlesnake
The Big Lie evolved into a kingsnake
The Big Lie engulfed into a boa constrictor
The Big Lie has embellished into a tarantula
The Big Lie has morphed into a green anaconda

The Big Lie has divided family and friends
The Big Lie even found its way into churches
The Big Lie has destroyed some politicians blind
The Big Lie rushes into any crack it can find
The Big Lie cannot stand alone but need others
The Big Lie perpetuates itself…


A snapshot about how one lady found her niche and lived it to the fullest

Watching Good Morning America and was so elated when I heard about the oldest living National Park Ranger in America age 100, Betty Reid Soskin, and is yet going strong as she was briefly interviewed on television.

Ms. Soskin as the oldest living American active park ranger celebrates her 100th birthday as the National Park Service honors the profound and noteworthy impact she has had in her field and now globally inspiring others to follow their passion and dreams.

She has become somewhat of a national celebrity for her tours at Richmond, California’s Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front…


How deputies joined in the cover-up of force that resulted in the death of two civilians

In the last few years, much truth has been coming to the light regarding the police behavior and all the wrongs they have been doing against the people of color and in their communities.

Attorney Generals around the country are spearheading investigations rooting out corrupt deputies and officers. Recently in Los Angeles, deputies have been accused of lying about on-duty assault and faced felony counts for filing false reports about a 2018 incident.

The two deputies, Woodrow Kim and Jonathan Miramontes falsified reports after…


As a leader of 54 diverse countries supporting a culturally diverse movement is in perfect order

There are 54 countries in the Commonwealth, in Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe, and the Pacific. Commonwealth countries are diverse — they are amongst the world’s biggest, smallest, richest, and poorest countries.

Leaders of member countries shape Commonwealth policies and priorities. Every 2 years, they meet to discuss issues affecting the Commonwealth and the wider world at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

A commonwealth realm is a sovereign state which has Elizabeth II as its monarch and head of state. Each realm functions as an independent state, equal with the other realms. …


How protestors are henceforth going to meet their match moving forward, no more destructive insurrectionists’ wartime

A day late and a dollar short is my description of this past Saturday’s protest at the U.S. Capitol. January 6 protestors were not your everyday people taking a tour of the capitol on January 6, 2021 as stated by many of the GOP who have chosen not to have the insurrection investigated. We wonder why not? Shouldn’t America want to know the truth behind the January 6 insurrection? What was this Saturday, September 18 all about? Did they come back for another friendly tour of the Capitol? Who is kidding who?

These people are insurrectionists who have an agenda…


How a seventeen years old black man was beaten, kicked, suffered two black eyes and what resembled a boot print to the face.

Pictures don’t lie, just like a camera takes exactly what it sees. In the above photo, Devin Carter, 17, was allegedly beaten by two Stockton officers. They were indicted and charged for using excessive force during a traffic stop that resulted in Cater being beaten, blackeyed, and left with what resembled a boot print on his cheek.

According to the newspaper, the officers, Michael Stiles and Omar Villapudua were charged with two counts of assault, one under…


How this police created task force detained Black people for trivial reasons

Dirt that is done in the dark will eventually come to the light. For ages, Black people have been targeted for one reason or another by the police and today is no different even when they have not done anything wrong or against the law. This is called systemic racism and suppression.

As of the very recent past, Beverly Hills has found itself in the middle of a lawsuit for racism. Black people were targeted for arrest for trivial reasons because they were seen in Beverly Hills. …
