Black People Have Been Slapped Down By the American Society…What Will it Take A Beat Down…Before Black People Unite Together

I am of the opinion it is going to take a beat down instead of the “slap down” to get this message across to Black Americans. Example, our recent societal focus on Black incarceration rates, drug dealings / use, and cops killing unarmed Black men has been constantly occurring events in Black communities the past 50 years. Yet we continue to feed the hand that slaps us.

Yet overall, Black Americans have yet to unify together to oppose the ill forces our communities suffer disproportionately.

It is like living in a house with cockroaches, but no one living in the house steps on the pest to eliminate its habitation in the house.

Black people continue to plead to government and its social agencies to solve these issues. Instead of taking, the rings of accountability and responsibility to alter / reduce the course of these social traps that also affect other non-Blacks in our society.

Yet non-Black people manage well together in pooling their resources together cooperatively which lessen the impact of social ills in their communities.

Just maybe Black Americans need to accept who they are (Black Americans) instead of believing they are part of other people’s identities.

{I personally, adopted what considered a Muslim last name, to replace my father father’s x slave father adopted European / White person surname. My personal name change declaration does not dismiss my race identity as a Black man. On the contrary, it reaffirms my race lands (Africa) origins, which surnames naturally accomplish in the eyes of humanity.  Surnames originating on the African continent, not the European continent signifies the Black race. I am not a White man so why should I rationally continue carrying a White man surname. It just made rational sense to me to change my name when I claimed the stolen identity of my Black slave fore parents.} 

Black Americans have a unique identity but many of us deny its realness or authenticity due to the perceived negative construct of race identity in America great social experiment.

Black Wall Streets that use to exist across America are just reminders of any race natural human social order and social paths. We / our group turned its back on, to counter American societal racist tactics to appease government forces and ultimately the dominant ruling members of the American society.

Whereas a continuance of establishing Black Wall Street’s wherever x slaves migrated or relocated after the American Civil War ended would have ensured advancement and prosperity other races and ethnic groups immigrant fore parents have pasted down to their children since migrating to America to become American citizens.

The children of White, Red, Brown, and Yellow Americans accept without question who they are. This social norm unites them in the field of economics and gives them social advantages they all share, excluding the Black man and woman here in America.

Human Complexity Tolerates Critical Dysfunctional Behavior – Why?

Health care providers are mandatory reporters of sexual child abuse. Any minor – let alone a 10-year-old – giving birth to a child in a hospital should be, reported to the state’s child protection agency. So why, in this case, did it take a tip from a concerned person and not an authoritative hospital official? Answer: The rule of law protects human predators.  Pedophile_Rapist_darrick_

I am not a surface dweller on issues most concerning the overall deplorable state of human development on our earth.  So tune out or remove your eyes from my analysis here if you cannot comprehend my previous written opinions and analysis about human relationship and affairs. 

It is not just families remaining silent in child abuse cases, but the society has no remedy to contain nor treat child predators among us. This man is a rapist and pedophile black devil (Yes, black devil! I said it) that went undetected like a serial killer in our society until caught. The only remedy to prevent rapist and pedophiles from harming others is men, women, and the society must deal with this behavior efficiently when it occurs and arises in public view, by removing these type of people permanently from family and society when they are detected and found guilty of these heinous sexual acts.

Forced sexual acts against children and others by these type of people should be automatic revocation – by the society – of the perpetrator human rights. Our society today has the technology to determine the truth in any matter. For an example, in this case, this black devil appears guilty. He has earned the ending of his life.

If I had power and force, I would designate an island or faraway planet to exile this type of human being, or better yet end their lives. Sexual predators should not even, be locked up with common criminals. Our society in particular and many others do not have the will to destroy human predators.

Furthermore, many more societies and the “rule of law” on our planet indirectly promote this behavior, so this particular scourge of immorality  – and others not mentioned here –  will continue to plague societies until humanity develops the will to eliminate these type of sexual behaviors forced on the helpless.

Any person possibly can be helpless in any given situation depending on unpredictable circumstances, which too often is reported by news media outlets, which pacifies the public sense that the government and the rule of law works on behalf of human decency and law-abiding citizens, but the same rule of law protect the humanity of human predators.

Finally, I pose the question, are human predators human, and should the rule of laws protect their humanity when they violate the victim humanity?

Juneteenth 2015: A Call to Reaffirmation in the Black Community


Juneteenth 2015: A Call to Reaffirmation in the Black Community

Happy Juneteenth Day my Beloved Community! Many in our community do not appreciate this day or what it stands for. It is a good time to take at least 24 hours to reflect on the sacrifices made by our ancestors so long ago.

“We’ve Come This Far by Faith, Leaning on the Lord…”

One of my favorite gospel songs of all time still holds true today. In the wake of a national tragedy in South Carolina at one of the most historic places of worship and community, and our country facing many important racial Social Justice Issues, we still keep pressing on towards freedom leaning on God’s Divine Mercy that set us free from slavery officially June 19, 1865 in Galveston Texas.

Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. said that freedom is not only from something but to something. It is with this hope that we continue to works towards creating peace and a better community with our brothers and sisters. In order to be the Beloved Community MLK dreamt of we must truly live as a united community.

Juneteenth Day is the official day when the slaves learned of their freedom. Here in Milwaukee, we enjoy one of the largest celebrations in the country. Today there is a parade followed by festivities all along MLK Drive.


I hope that this year’s day is a peaceful as last year’s activities and even better. I pray our young people are not seen as “thugs” but future potential. Us grown folk would be wise to talk to the youth and hear them out. Young people show some respect, especially to your elders. Instead of blasting your music and staying on the cell phones, take in the history that surrounds you.

As we grace MLK Drive, let us remember this very street is sacred earth that brought our local community to freedom from such things as unfair housing, police brutality, and racism.

With the first Black President in office it is an excellent opportunity to reaffirm and reposition ourselves as Beloved Community. True peace, freedom, and justice will only come when we begin the healing from within.

Remember to buy Black and spread the love today! See you down there.

Peace Family,


Black America and The Black Church Misdirection in the American Society

Many of the comments in this social feed ( )  reflect the anger many Black Americans are dealing with as a result of  the Church Mass Shooting. On the other hand the anger also reflects a deep issue in Black America that most concerns this Black man.

This anger reflects a mass mind in a state of despair. I can imagine field slaves complaining to each one another about; House slaves biscuits and chicken servings flowing over their plates compared to field slaves pig feet and greens served in the pig sloth trough.

Yes Black America you should be angry Black Christians (9) were gun down by a White male while gathered for a church service, but who screams and shouts when Black people gun down each other on the streets in similar fashions.


Black people who persist in labeling today’s Black professionals (regardless of profession or status) with a voice in America social affairs and events happenings as “coons,” house slaves, uncle toms, or whatever left over derogatory slave epithet created by racist Whites to further subjugate and dehumanize the Black man and woman NEED TO WAKE UP TO THE RACE GAME.







Milwaukee Black Community Ignored in Surrounding Development (SHOW ME THE MONEY) of New Arena…And Beat Down Black Milwaukeans Continues in this U.S City

Milwaukee Natural Goom“County Executive Chris Abele offers the billionaire owners of the Bucks 10 acres of prime downtown county land worth an est. $9 million dollars for $1.00” (Based on the billionaires “envisioned” investments of $400 million surrounding development of the new arena over the next 11 years or more).

It is a win; win for these billionaires not the taxpayers!

Let us see if I understand this correctly, Billionaires pay $1 for 10 acres of public owned land then they find, or have other developers to pay them (billionaire new owners) upwards of $400 million dollars to build on the previously owned taxpayers land. Somebody please enlighten me if I am in the parking lot (not the arena) watching this game.

All my life I have looked for the secret to turn dirt into gold. Well, I fully understand now, how billionaires become billionaires. Share a vision of turning dirt on county owned land into gold, to a wealthy elected politician who obviously, does not understand assessed land values rising with land development future returns.

The bottomline is Chris Abele is a paid county “Stuart”–oops my bag–Steward, over taxpayers county lands and resources but his stewardship loyalty to tax paying county residents are more questionable than today’s admitted republican privatizers of public own lands and resources.

Bruce Murphy journalism is objectively correct in questioning wealthy Chris Abele motivations to poof 10 acres of county land assessed at $9 million dollars. Inquiring minds have a right to know that is what journalism is all about…

I believe an equitable arena deal is overlooked by elected leaders. Exposed by this example of talks by County Executive Abele give away deal that does not benefit Milwaukee county residents, especially our young adults in the planned 11 years of construction development downtown Milwaukee.

Example of a better deal than the billionaires promising “20 to 25% construction hours,” will go to City and County residents-over the propose 11 years, three phases construction projects… 

How about agreeing to 50 to 60% of work hours given to Milwaukee City County residents during the projects three phases?

Did County Executive Chris Abele and Mayor Tom Barrett overlook in their search to finance a new arena the fact Milwaukee is rated fourth in poverty in the Nation of cities its size? The poor do not need better basketball courts paid by the NBA (as reported in the rag-tag Community Journal (Purportedly the voice of Milwaukee Black community) in targeted county parks. The Black community in Milwaukee need real job creation avenues providing incomes to live comfortably day-to-day to enjoy Wisconsin’s outstanding Park and Recreational Systems.

Where are the public talks from our elected county and city representatives disclosing the racial makeup of the work force work hours needed to undertake proposed billions of dollars in new development downtown Milwaukee in the next decade?

More importantly in this Black man opinion is that Black Milwaukee needs to shout…Show us the money too!

Black America -v- White America=Reloaded

I write within the context of American historical racial events and authoritative documents accounting for the pestering present day obvious race issues, and recent, but not new, social events created from the Black and White problem here in our great society.

The main problem when realistically observed is the society collectively denies racism exist. White people being in the greatest status quote positions dictate social realities. They cannot see racism oppressive role in American social institutions because the overall majority of White Americans believe in the spirit of the US Constitution. Most White Americans are prevented, by deceptive social constructs found in America’s Constitution, like the phantom belief of Freedom, Justice, and Equality for all Americans.

This is the standard patriotic belief of all Americans that hides the dark conscience of America destroying the souls of Black folks with pestering ongoing suffering in the society.

Criminality in The Black and White Problem Complicit with Race Agitators But I’m Not One of Them

Mr. T:

Latest Black History Check

Of course, I am suggesting a seemingly impossible cognitive shift in the minds of Black liberals lacking conservative thinking as a social balance that it is, in a racist society where White people hold the upper hand in all institutions in the society but let us try it.

See the thing about the criminal mind is that it operates outside of human socially established laws and established social norms of what is consider being a positive citizen contributing positive conduct to the positive health of a society. What was once known as, or labeled “Out Laws,” is today politically correct termed Criminals? One thing about criminality in the world is it comes in the mind of all races and ethnicity.

Bob Donovan Announces 10-Point Plan to Deal with Crime?


Bob Donovan Announces 10-Point Plan to Deal with Crime

I had a problem, as many ethnic Milwaukeeans did with the location of the announcement. The city of Milwaukee deserves a “uniter” not a “divider” and if addressing the city, you should always give the appearance of bringing the city together rather than further polarizing an already segregated community. The announcement finished with a traditional bagpipe send-off. Not really screaming diversity is it? So will Donovan start to get in the streets he claims he wants to save and start talking to the “thugs?” Many talk tough but very few put words into action. Personally I would like to see Donovan over Barrett. Mayor Barrett has absolutely destroyed this city. However if Donovan wants to bring “peace to the streets” he needs to get in them, not just when cameras are around!!

Here is Donovan’s 10-Point plan along with pertinent information.

Peace Fam,


4 Term Alderman Bob Donovan (8th Aldermanic District-South Side), who is running for mayor, held a “kick off rally” for his “2016 Common Sense for Milwaukee Mayoral Campaign.” Held at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, Donovan unveiled a ten-point plan for improving public safety in Milwaukee.

Donovan says his Public Safety Plan was assembled after interviews with experienced sources in law enforcement.

Alarming stats:

72% increase in gun-related crime from 2010 to 2014.

Auto theft and violent crime are up 53% and 25% during the same period.

2015’s homicide rate is up 189% over last year.

Here is Donovan’s ten-point “Public Safety Plan” for Milwaukee:

  1. End police department furloughs and fire department downsizing.

Police department furloughs and fire department brown outs and downsizing are a threat to our community’s public safety. Police furloughs this year will remove officers from our crime-ridden streets to the tune of more than 40,000 man-hours, reducing our ability to fight crime. We’ve experienced cuts at the fire department under Mayor Barrett’s watch, which risks our residents’ safety. In the post-9/11 era and while many of our neighborhoods are run by criminals, it is more important than ever to provide the necessary staffing at our police and fire departments to ensure public safety.

  1. Hire 300 to 400 new police officers.

Without doubt one of the most effective means of improving public safety is to put more police officers on the streets. Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Police Commissioner Bill Bratton accomplished this in the 1990s in New York City. They assembled a surge in the ranks of the NYPD and within a few years turned New York City around and made their city one of the safest large cities in America. In their approach to policing, Giuliani and Bratton applied the “broken windows” theory of urban decay, which holds that minor disorders and violations create a permissive atmosphere that leads to further and more serious crimes that threaten the safety of the city and its residents.

In Milwaukee’s case, our police department is currently operating at a deficit. MPD’s number of sworn members is lower today than when Mayor Barrett took office in 2004 and as a result our officers — already experiencing low morale — are overloaded with calls and responsibilities not typically assigned to uniformed officers.

I seriously intend to tackle crime and return our neighborhoods to law abiding citizens. As mayor I would hire 300 to 400 new officers in the first two years of my term and focus many of the new hires on beat patrols, which have proven in study after study to be extremely effective in identifying and eradicating issues at the neighborhood level because the assigned officers get to know their beat. Beat officers, working closely with neighborhood residents and businesses, also help to improve police-community relations.

  1. Rescind Chief Flynn’s 2010 pursuit policy change.

As I predicted in March of 2010 — when Chief Flynn changed MPD’s pursuit policy to one of basically no pursuits –criminals have taken to repeatedly driving away from police because they know our officers will not pursue. Unless you’re a criminal who’s just committed a violent felony, you can simply drive away. The police are not allowed to pursue you because it’s against Chief Flynn’s policy. I’m told criminals from Chicago are making the drive up to Milwaukee to commit their crimes due to our “soft” pursuit policy. We already have enough criminals here at home and now we’ve hung a welcome mat out for others to come to town? It’s gotten so bad I’ve had officers tell me they’ve been flipped off by passengers in vehicles next to them at red lights. The vehicle then peels off through the red light with its passengers laughing as they know the officers are unable to pursue because it would be a violation of policy. I’ve been told by officers they are witnessing drivers speeding down our streets at 70-80 miles-per-hour but there isn’t anything they can do because to pursue such a vehicle is against policy. MPD has already recorded more than 1,000 non-pursuits this year. What other crimes have those 1,000 criminals gone on to commit because Chief Flynn gave them a pass? Certainly police pursuits must balance the immediate need to apprehend a suspect with the safety of the officer or officers involved and innocent civilians. I do not want to see officers or law-abiding citizenry injured or killed due to a pursuit of a criminal.

But the current pursuit policy is extremely lenient and criminals are taking advantage of it. It’s time we rescind the 2010 policy change. There is a common sense balance to pursuits and that is returning to the previous policy which allowed supervisors to make the call to continue or disengage a pursuit based on information from officers on the street.

  1. Mayor to appoint police and fire chiefs.

Milwaukee’s mayor, like those in many of our nation’s large cities — New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit and Minneapolis to name a few — would appointment the police and fire chiefs, contingent on confirmation by the Milwaukee Common Council. The buck will stop at the mayor’s desk. The public will easily ascertain who is responsible. The demands placed on the Fire & Police Commission have become more numerous and technical. While the Fire & Police Commission would remain intact and keep many of their current duties, the mayor would make appointments. This policy gives the mayor more control, oversight and direct responsibility to the residents of the city.

  1. Downsize command staff.

The command staff level of the Milwaukee Police Department is a bloated bureaucracy. We need to cut back on the number of assistant chiefs and upper command staff positions and reallocate our resources to hire new beat cops to patrol our neighborhoods.

  1. Expand Detective Bureau, restore Vice Division, strengthen drug enforcement.

We must bolster our police districts, not further weaken them. Uniformed officers need to be on the street, preventing and fighting crime. They do not belong tied up doing investigations that had traditionally been the responsibility of detectives. Officers should remain in their assigned neighborhoods, get to know the residents and business owners, build relationships, get to know the good and the bad. If I were mayor I would bolster the Detective Bureau, weakened under the current administration, and restore the Vice Division, eliminated by the current administration. Regarding drug enforcement, drug related arrests were down 40% last year compared to 2010. I assure you, drug use and drug dealing has not decreased 40% at the same time. Our city needs to wipe the scourge of drugs and drug dealing off our streets as it is responsible for much of our city’s gun violence.

  1. Expand Operation Impact and ShotSpotter technology.

Operation Impact, which I founded in Milwaukee’s 8th Aldermanic District in 2008, is a multi-faceted, comprehensive approach to reducing crime and disorder. The program is a way to partner law enforcement and city resources with private donors and local businesses to bolster public safety. Components of the program include:

  • Paying for additional overtime for beat cops.
  • Expanding the use of surveillance cameras on private business properties
  • Improving lighting in and near alley ways and other susceptible locations.

Supported largely by private contributions, Operation Impact has been a stunning success for the 8th Aldermanic District that has prevented and reduced criminal activity, thereby enhancing residents’ and visitors’ sense of security and neighborhood quality of life.

This has, in turn, led to other positive changes in the community, including new and expanded business and housing investment and renovation. ShotSpotter technology is a gunshot detection system that detects and conveys the location of gunfire or other weapon fire using acoustic, optical and other types of sensors, as well as a combination of such sensors. These systems are used by police to identify the source and, in some cases, the direction of gunfire and/or the type of weapon fired. ShotSpotter has been highly effective in helping MPD pinpoint the time and location of violent incidents in the target area.

  1. Expand Community Prosecution Unit.

Typically on any given block in even the city’s most challenged neighborhoods, just one or two houses or businesses are the source of 95% or more of the problems — drug dealing, gang activity, loitering, loud music/noise, underage drinking, various disturbances and other activities that generate dozens of calls for police service. The city of Milwaukee has an effective tool for dealing with these nuisance properties: the Community Prosecution/ Nuisance Abatement Unit of the District Attorney’s office, which collaborates with community agencies and other city departments to abate nuisance properties, eliminate known drug and gang houses, investigate and prosecute problematic licensed premises, address boarded-up and vacant properties, and prosecute various ordinance violations.

The Community Prosecution Unit has been successful in reducing crime and disorder as well as code violations at properties for which its resources have been harnessed and employed. Milwaukee needs to expand this program to each police district to extend its benefits to all challenged Milwaukee neighborhoods so every Milwaukeean feels safe at home.

  1. Reform Juvenile Justice System.

I may not agree on everything with Chief Flynn, but I do agree with his assessment of our Juvenile Justice System. It is irretrievably broken. It seems day-in and day-out we hear shocking stories of out-of-control juveniles behaving outrageously and, in some cases, committing heinous crimes. I have people familiar with the situation telling me Milwaukee’s Juvenile Justice System is among the worst in the nation, with kids not getting turned around or rehabilitated, with the vast majority of them assembling lengthy police records by the time they turn 18. The Juvenile Justice System was set up to ensure our laws are enforced, that those who violate the law are punished, that the punished are reformed and as a result order restored. That is not occurring in Milwaukee. The current Juvenile Justice System is failed. It is high time we make the punishments sure, swift and harsh for juveniles who break the law. The District Attorney’s Office, local judges and the state need to partner in finding the solutions necessary to repair the system. The bottom line is that the message needs to be sent to these kids that their “play time” is over and their jail time is just ahead if they continue to disobey the law. If I were mayor I would work to see that true reform comes to the Juvenile Justice System once and for all.

  1. I Pledge Milwaukee

Finally, modeled after Philadelphia’s “I Pledge” campaign, I propose the creation of “I Pledge Milwaukee,” a campaign and effort to encouraged Milwaukee residents to commit to making our city a better place by pledging to fight violence, give a few hours each month for community service, mentoring young people, getting to know their neighbors. The possibilities are endless. The “I Pledge” campaign recognizes that the power of a city lies in its people, and in particular, their collective hopes and actions. The goal of this initiative is to encourage residents to pledge actions, time, money and other resources necessary to make the community a better place for themselves, their families, their neighbors and all city residents. By successfully organizing an “I Pledge Milwaukee” campaign, we can engage all members of the community — individuals, businesses, foundations, churches and more in doing something positive for the city. I truly believe that everyone has something to offer the community, no matter how rich or poor, powerful or humble. “I Pledge Milwaukee” could be the vehicle to help residents channel their abilities, interests and resources in a way that improves the city around them. There’s no limit to what a united Milwaukee can accomplish!

This 10-point plan is only a beginning. There are other serious issues threatening Milwaukee’s public safety. The District Attorney must prosecute violent criminals to the fullest extent of the law. No more plea bargaining or tossing out of gun charges.

Our judges need to understand lenient sentences put violent offenders back out on our streets too soon, only to re-offend. There are inadequacies in our social service and mental health programs, also in need of reform. There are serious issues with our foster care system and child protective services. The bottom line in the case of many of city’s criminals is that we’re dealing with the products of the dysfunction that is the breakdown of the family unit. Every child deserves to grow up in a loving, nurturing environment in which they are taught the principles of hard work, personal responsibility and respect for others.

The mayoral race is set for spring 2016. Mayor Tom Barrett is running for re-election and Alderman Joe Davis has also announced plans to run.
