From day one, it’s just been my white mom and me, although that’s nothing I would complain about. Throughout my life, she has been one of the only people in my white family to acknowledge and promote me being black. Since I never knew or met my father or the black side of my family, that was a big thing. I had nobody of color in my known family and for a while, very few black people in my life at all. Looking back on 18 years of living, my mom has been the only person in my family who encourages me and helps me understand what it means to be black, live life as a black youth and young man. She’s the only person who ever brought black role models into my life and acknowledged the struggles I’ve faced being a black young man.

One of the largest nuisances I’ve faced has been people constantly insisting that I “pick a side.” I was born to a white mom and a black father who was never present, making me half black and light skinned. Because of who I am, people throughout my life, especially into high school, would insist on me being either black or white. Maybe it was because I’m from the south, but people casually tell me I am “too white” to really be black. And, yet for someone who was “too white,” I constantly dealt with the disadvantages that came with being black in the American south.

My grandma is one of the people who constantly insisted I was white whenever she got the chance. If I ever mentioned being black around my grandma, she would always chime in with “you’re white, too” no matter who I was talking to or what the context was. She could literally be in another room as I mentioned being black and she would holler into the room that I’m also white. My grandmother once even sat me down to try and explain to me how President Obama was black, and I was different because I’m white. Even though we both are mixed are both were born of a white mother and black father, it seemed to miss her. To her President Obama and I were two totally different racial categories simply because she said so and could somehow justify it in her narrow mind. My mom explained to me that this is called cognitive dissonance.

No matter how much my grandma or others insisted I was white I still have to struggle with the burdens and microaggressions that black people regularly face. When I was 15 and 16 I learned to drive knowing that getting pulled over for any reason, even as small as for a speeding ticket, could get me shot by a cop without reason or cause. While other kids were learning to yield to pedestrians, my mom taught me to put my hands on the dash and not make any sudden moves in the case of a traffic stop.

I learned that the white cop who stopped me as I was walking around Downtown Fort Myers with my white girlfriend just to ask her in the middle of our date “Are you okay? Is this man bothering you?” wouldn’t see me as white but as a black man who has no business walking around town with a white young lady. He sees me as a nuisance and a trouble maker.

I grew up knowing that no matter how white I am, confederate flag toting rednecks would still have no problem telling me and my friends to “go back home you niggers” as they drove by in their pickup trucks. Whenever somebody asks what race I am I proudly say that I am black. Because being half white has shown me the privileges that come with being white while providing me access to none of them. Being half black simply gives me a window to peer into the house of the white world as I stand outside getting soaked by the downpour of burdens that come with being black.

We had a black PRESIDENT

We had a black Chief of Staff for the Armed Services

We have a black female National Security Advisors

A back woman is among the ten wealthiest people in the contry

We have a black Supreme Court Justice

We have black Congressmen, black Senators, black mayors and black entertainers

We have black Police Officers and black Firefighters

We have a Black Miss American Pagent

We have a black woman win the Miss American Pagent ( no White Miss American Pageants allowed) 😊

The National Football League is 70% black

The National Basket League is 75% black

Major League Baseball is 45% black

All these accomplishments, yet African Americans are just now topping 13% of the American population

Still believe we are a racist nation? PROBABLY

WE WERE ALL HUMANS

UNTIL

RACE DISCONNECTED US,

RELIGION SEPARATED US,

POLITICS DIVIDED US,

AND WEALTH CLASSIFIED US.

🤐

The fact that humanity
Has to clarify that any lives
Matter
Should be concern enough 🤗

“EVERYONE!” ~ MYSTIC POET 💥

“EVERYONE!” a poem April 16, 2019 (TWO – z – n – snooze Day)

H – I – V -and-can-cer were ticklin’- me ‘fore-I-was-born!
Recombinant D. N. A. – was-my-playmate, as I scampered-on-the-farm!
Avian Flu and “Legionnaires'”* and syphilis are my friends!
EVERYONE-always wants-to-come with me, ’til’this-dream-scape-finally-ends!
We’re-all-just-a-happy-fam-ily! Let-me-introduce-EVERYONE-to-you:
But, sadly – many-cry: “KILLERS!” and “You’re-gonna-give-me-the-flu!”

So, IMMUNIZE (Don’t sym-pathize) – with natural strains, like CALVIN,**
And “Calvin-ism’s”*** coming back – and-nothing-really-needs-much-solvin’ !!!!
But, Lordie! People drop LIKE FLIES, when-they-get-fear-installed,
By clever, medical personnel, saying: “OMG!-Cancer!-I’m-appalled,
That you’re-not-MORE-afraid-of-dying, especially-during-Tax-Season!****”
But DON’T DIE YET! Be-sure-to-pay-your-taxes, and right here’s the blessed reason:
“We need-to-get-VALUE-from-you, as-much, as much as we can,
As we input fear-and-terror into YOUR PRECIOUS CAN!
We want you to know [that] you got BAD STUFF there, INSIDE,
Lurking (to-get-out-of-YOU)! Life’s a PERILOUS RIDE!
If we can’t get you with ‘a physical scare,’ did-you-know-you-have-‘mental defects? ‘
Buy into those, for we always suppose:
OUR CAUSE(s) YIELD LUCRATIVE E-FECTS!”

* – a mysterious disease, similar to pneumonia, which was first reported and killed a number of people in Philadelphia in 1976 (named, because the first afflicted were members of The American Legion) Today, almost 7,000 cases are reported each year!

** – A seemingly lethal LIFEform, appearing in the film “Life!” (S)he was originally named “Calvin,” by some well-meaning children, who loved the little organism, shortly after it was born (before it started growing and consuming EVERYONE who resisted it)! Kids are SO CUTE! President Trump, for instance; the cutest, little kid you’ve ever seen! Did you know his parents almost named Calvin?

*** – a fairly popular form of Christianity, which emphasizes “being saved” by “having faith,” God’s GRACE ALONE and the idea that there is an “elect,” a group of just some people that get God’s grace! (and that elect group just happens to come to our church)!

**** – OMG! Tax were DUE yesterday! Thank GOD – for “extensions!” “The Lord giveth and The Lord taketh away!!”

“NOTRE DAME, WHAT A GAL!”MYSTIC POET 👑

“NOTRE DAME, WHAT A GAL!” a poem, a.k.a.: “Sometimes The Divine Plan Is Included As The Lyrics In A Song, Sung In A Foreign Language That Hardly Anyone Understands!” April 16, 2019 (Tuesday)

on television, internationally televised:

The Paris folks are singing, singing [for donations?] in the street,
And The Pontiff is a-dancing – to a classic, Minuet beat!
The ONLY people that KNOW this song, sing ancient French and Greek,
But I got a good translation [somehow!] – It’s-called: “50% To The Meek!”

What they are singing about, as we listen to them on-The-News-of- FOX,
Is all about – how “The Church of God” just-needed a few new locks!!
And, also, how The Holy Rulers of The Catholic Church,
Prayed (and suggested) arson!!!!!-might-get-Notre-Dame-out-of-a-lurch!!

The thing is: As the locks were examined, they-found the doors needed work too,
And (also) the windows and the roof!!!!! needed-to-be BRAND NEW!!!
BUT! There was no money – to finance-the-renovation,
‘Cause EVERYONE’S CASH IS PERMANENTLY ON VACATION!

All our cash is given [monthly] to-government-&-Intel crooks,
Who have cornered all the-cell-phone-and-computer-markets, duping all us “sooks!”

So, Jacques DuPres, in Paris, living on Frere Lane,
Lit a match (late Sunday), and God-did-not-make-it-rain!
So, things burned! really-good! (We got the art out though)!
Now, lots of donations-are-bringing! that’s right! beaucoup dough!!

The plan worked!! 50% goes to, you-guessed-it, Vatican City,
For the work of God: salaries-&-reconstructive-surgery-on-any-needed-altar-boy’s-titty!
