Chicago: 64 BLM: 0

Chicago shootings: 64 shot, 11 fatally in weekend violence

Weekends in Chicago have been plagued by violence this summer.

Chicago police said 64 people were shot, 11 fatally, between 6:00 p.m. Friday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday. That follows a deadly weekend over the 4th of July when 87 people were shot. The weekend before that, there were 63 shooting victims.

BLM: What We Believe

“The Black Lives Matter Global Network is as powerful as it is because of our membership, our partners, our supporters, our staff, and you. Our continued commitment to liberation for all Black people means we are continuing the work of our ancestors and fighting for our collective freedom because it is our duty.

Every day, we recommit to healing ourselves and each other, and to co-creating alongside comrades, allies, and family a culture where each person feels seen, heard, and supported.

We acknowledge, respect, and celebrate differences and commonalities.

We work vigorously for freedom and justice for Black people and, by extension, all people.”

So that’s their story, BLM. Healing, supporting, respecting, working for justice, etc. My question to them is when will the west side of my city reap all of this support, respect, freedom, and justice that you talk about? Does black on black crime not matter to you? Does a black need to be killed by a white cop before you’ll act? Does tearing down a 150 year old statue mean more to you than justice for the people of the west side of Chicago? I ask you, what are you doing for these real victims of injustice?

Teacher who raped and later married student, dies from cancer at 58

By Lauren Theisen, New York Daily News 

Mary Kay Letourneau, the Seattle-area teacher who gained national notoriety when she pleaded guilty to raping her sixth-grade student Vili Fualaau, died on Tuesday of stage 4 cancer at the age of 58, her attorney confirmed.

Letourneau served seven years in prison for second-degree rape of a child and was released in 2004. She grabbed more tabloid headlines after she and her victim married less than a year after she got out of prison, when Fualaau was 21 years old.

The couple had two children together — one born while Letourneau was awaiting sentencing, and another while she was in prison. They divorced in August 2019, after 14 years of marriage.

I just have one thought about Mary Kay:

Chicago: 104 BLM: 0

104, that’s how any people were shot in Chicago last weekend. Of those shot, 14 were killed, including 5 children. This is the same city that has a black mayor, and a black chief of police. What the city doesn’t have, but surely needs, is BLM.

Where are you guys ? Marching somewhere safe, I suppose. Going to build another safe zone for yourselves. In some safe city, I suppose. Going to preach to us, how much you matter ? While you hide away someplace safe, there’s some real discrimination happening. Not white against black. Try black against black. Discrimination and killing.

I challenge you to get your caravans together, from all over the country, and come to Chicago. I dare you to establish a safe zone in Chicago’s West Side. I dare you to disrupt the flow of drug trafficking that goes on there. Just be prepared for some serious discrimination. And it won’t be from us whites.

A Classic Dirty Trick By Dems. Election Interference ?

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., claims she knows why many seats were empty at President Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Okla., on Saturday night.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez@AOC · 

Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID

Shout out to Zoomers. Y’all make me so proud. ☺️ …

It wasn’t clear if Ocasio-Cortez knew of the alleged scheme in advance, or if she was reacting to media reports.

An Iowa woman posted a video on TikTok last week, encouraging people to participate in the alleged scam, CNN reported.

“All of those of us that want to see this 19,000 seat auditorium barely filled or completely empty go reserve tickets now and leave him standing alone there on the stage,” the woman, identified as Mary Jo Laupp, told her TikTok followers.

Thousands of other TikTok users posted similar messages as the plan spread online, The New York Times reported.

“It spread mostly through Alt TikTok —  we kept it on the quiet side where people do pranks and a lot of activism,” YouTuber Elijah Daniel, 26, told the Times. “K-pop Twitter and Alt TikTok have a good alliance where they spread information amongst each other very quickly. They all know the algorithms and how they can boost videos to get where they want.”

Many of those participating in the alleged scam deleted their posts after 24 to 48 hours in a bid to limit word of the plan from spreading on mainstream social media, the Times report said.

“These kids are smart and they thought of everything,” Daniel told the paper.

KPop activists were previously linked to campaigns to raise money for Black Lives Matter, fight racist hashtags on Twitter and disrupt the eyewitness app of the Dallas Police Department, reported.

My Question: If “kids” can do this, how safe will your mail-in presidential ballot Be ?

Why You Won’t See Aunt Jemima on Shelves Ever Again

Quaker Oats announced early Wednesday morning that it would cease the production and sale of Aunt Jemima syrup and pancake mix in order to completely rebrand the line, citing an effort “to make progress toward racial equality.”a row of beer bottles© Provided by Eat This, Not That!

The popular syrup brand, which has existed for 130 years, features a Black woman named “Aunt Jemima,” who initially was dressed as a minstrel character, on its instantly recognizable label. Quaker Oats recently removed the minstrel attire that featured a “mammy” kerchief amid an outcry of criticism over the perpetuation of a racial stereotype from the days of slavery. But, that hasn’t been enough.

“We recognize Aunt Jemima’s origins are based on a racial stereotype,” Kristin Kroepfl, vice president and chief marketing officer of Quaker Foods North America, said in a press release, according to NBC News. “As we work to make progress toward racial equality through several initiatives, we also must take a hard look at our portfolio of brands and ensure they reflect our values and meet our consumers’ expectations.”

Kroepfl added that Quaker Oats has worked to “update” the brand to be “appropriate and respectful,” but it realized the changes were insufficient. As a result, the production of the Aunt Jemima label will cease as the company works on a totally new look and name for its syrup and pancake mix.

Since the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police over three weeks ago, the U.S. has seen an outcry of civil unrest that has led to a national reckoning and a complete reexamination of historic racial injustice. Many massive brands have expressed support of Black Lives Matter via social media, and now, brands like Quaker Oats, are being taken to task to update their images and practices.

During an appearance on the TODAY show Wednesday morning, Riché Richardson, an associate professor at Cornell University, called Aunt Jemima “a retrograde image of Black womanhood on store shelves,” adding “It’s an image that harkens back to the antebellum plantation … Aunt Jemima is that kind of stereotype [that’s] premised on this idea of Black inferiority and otherness.”

It is not yet clear how Quaker Oats will rebrand these popular products, but the removal of the product based on racial stereotypes from grocery store shelves will almost certainly be lauded in many circles. 

Well it may take awhile to figure this one out. After all, Quaker Oats has been selling this for 130 years. Let that sink in !

Ironic, Isn’t It ?

No, not the Alanis Morrisette song, it’s real life happenings in the U.S. A business owner got arrested and fined $7500 for daring to open her hairstyling business before the locals allowed her to. Ironic then, are the people who might loot her business and NOT be arrested. But if they were, they would be released within hours because of covid restrictions. Only in America.

Heartbroken in Chicago

The brutal killing of one black man has morphed into mass demonstrations all over America. That’s not such a bad idea at all. However, Dr. King is probably spinning in his grave at how his non-violent approach to racism has been corrupted into a sporting event of looting, burning and violence. Is this the justice for George we were expecting. No, justice was hijacked so stores could be emptied, business’ set on fire and grudges against police and society in general could be acted out.

If that’s not heartbreaking enough, here is the gut-kick. This past weekend, 27 people were killed and 92 shot all unrelated to the protests going on. This is black-on-black violence that white America doesn’t want to hear about, let alone protest against. I wonder why they chose to ignore this every weekend event when tv camera’s aren’t present. Where are the mass protests ?

Die Bitches. Just Die !

This is a message to all covid-19 coronavirus spores that are starting to melt under our late spring’s heat and humidity. For all of the millions of innocent people around the world who have suffered, died and experienced extreme misery due to you, I have just one thing to say as you scream out, “Help me, help me. I’M meltingggggg”. Just one thing to say to you :

Die Bitches, Just Die !

Bullying Claims Two More Lives

Hana Kimura and Amber-Lee Friis have died due to various forms of bullying.

A cause of death was not immediately clear. She recently posted a series of troubling tweets, one of which, according to a fan translation, read that she didn’t “want to be a human anymore.”

“Thank you to everyone who supported me,” read another message, which also implied that she had been cyberbullied.

Amber-Lee Friis, the beauty queen who went on to become a finalist in the Miss Universe New Zealand pageant, died on Monday. She was 23. In a statement to PEOPLE, the New Zealand Police Department confirmed they responded to a “sudden death” on May 18 and that the death had been referred to the coroner.

The accomplishment marked a major milestone for the young model, who struggled for years with her self-confidence after she was bullied by her classmates because of her tan skin and eyes, NZ Stuff reported.

What a tragedy that repeats itself every day, sparing no one who is the slightest bit different in looks or in lifestyle. We must stop this craziness that mandates that we all fit into a tiny box, or be bullied until we do something desparate.

Hilary ? Again ? Really ?

Hillary Clinton “Feels the Urge” to Run Against Trump Again

by Matt Palumbo
There’s still nine months to the election, but things aren’t looking great for the 2020 Democrats. In the hypothetical head-to-head polls President Trump trounces all his opponents, and the bookmaker’s odds favor his re-election.

It’s late now – but could another candidate enter the race with the ability to defeat Trump? One has reported thinking about entering – but we already know they don’t have the ability to defeat Trump.

As the New York Post reported: Nearly four years after President Trump defeated her in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton said she has an “urge” to run again because she thinks she can win this time.

The main stream media just might be starting to dump on Joe Biden to make way for Hilary Clinton to run against Trump again.  It will happen at DNC convention.
