Black Lives Matter – Devil’s Advocate

Time to get this show on the road. Last week I took a break because people committed enough levels of idiocy that my pain meds were not wiping it out, so I just decided to take a nap instead of dealing with the immoral brainless spineless wastes of humanity. Sometimes people need to take a break from the things that make us want to go completely super villain, make a base and start robbing banks in a green tuxedo as the next Riddler.

Now while I go start making a question mark cane Let me start off with Black Lives Matter because Black Lives Matter has failed to set out and really do what they wanted. They have caused more damage for the violent machinations then as a supposed tolerant activist group they wish to portray.

Now, I do not agree with the group but I have conversations with many members trying to glean a little bit of knowledge and try to see it from their side and as a man from the San Francisco branch had noted that there were problems with the group.

I was wondering what to do with the BLM thing because as a group they have not succeeded in their mission and that would make them a failure in this case. They have a lot of problems, but you know what this week it will be a two for one. This is the Devil’s Advocate on the BLM. Now I could just rip the Blm movement to shreds and after the whole incident with the police and the riots in Baltimore it would be easy but we are not going to do that.

The reason would be because BLM still has all the tools to be a success, and sometimes you fail a few times before getting the win so let us take a look at their list of demands or their targets within their policy or bucket list for the group, list of goals, however you want to cut it this is what they want and let us see if we can do some things about it. Starting at the main page of their policy.

“Black humanity and dignity require black political will and power. In response to the sustained and increasingly visible violence against Black communities in the U.S. and globally, a collective of more than 50 organizations representing thousands of Black people from across the country has come together with renewed energy and purpose to articulate a common vision and agenda. We are a collective that centers and are rooted in Black communities, but we recognize we have a shared struggle with all oppressed people; collective liberation will be a product of all of our work.”

Here is my first problem if you are going to come out of the gate swinging bring some factual ammo. Visible violence, unfortunately, is incorrect as if we go to the first source we see that not only with the growth of black lives matter that hate crime victimization has not shown “Significant difference” from their report in 2004. It also shows that the victims of racial violence are not majority black, in fact, both whites and Hispanic have more hate crime victimization in some cases almost two to one in the case of Hispanic and four to one in the terms of white people being the victim of these hate crimes. So this mission statement has been proven factually incorrect because it also has shown that black violence is not increasing in fact only the Hispanic community had to deal with a major increase. I guess the Hispanic community does not matter to black humanity because these numbers are pretty bad.

Let us get to the policy. It is split into six parts and we will jump through them to see what we have the first was marked under “End the War On Black People” First we need to prove a war before we end it, but they may have info as well inside. I am going to be doing the abridged version here but I have the links here so you can check me.

https://policy.m4bl.org/end-war-on-black-people/
The first one is to “end the criminalization of black political activity” Considering we just had black people in most of the major positions in politics I am calling this bull shit. Either there is a war within the black culture or you are clearly mental. So number one is a big no. Numbers 2-5 are admirable and do not seem to show a major problem. Protection and increased funding for black institutions including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s), Black media and cultural, political and social formations. That is clearly a problem because we do not have racially selective institutions except for black ones and if anyone would like to show me an alternative with as much reach as the BET then I would love to take a look, but until then, Race is not a debit card for money to push race, that is stupid and should not be done, and those who think that is should spit in the face of other people’s whose different cultures and experience are cast off by this sort of action. This is the sort of thing that is exclusive, you cannot be exclusive, movements need people or you will not be moving much further. 2 out of 5 so far are toxic. Not bad, but not a good ratio.

Reparations are next of the six main categories which basically boil down that they legislation “at them federal and state level that requires the United States to acknowledge the lasting impacts of slavery, establish and execute a plan to address those impacts. This includes the immediate passage of H.R 40”

H.R. 40 requests a federal commission to study slavery and its impact on descendants of slaves today, including the role of the Federal and State governments. It further requests that the commission makes recommendations based on its finding, including an apology to descendants of slaves and reparations. It requests $8 million for the commission but does not specifically call for the development of heritage sites or monuments.

On the basis of this law, fuck you. Apologies do not come because somewhere in your family something bad happened, you do not get to be special for that and really it is sad that you find your lives was pitiful that an apology for those who are not here is all you want. Also addressing the other parts of this section. You do not get full and free access to high-quality educational opportunities for all black people. That is disgusting, you sick freaks. Free education on your skin color, retroactive forgiveness of student loans for black students is not a something that will help your cause it will be something that makes you look like the bigoted misguided people that never got out to read a book and felt their life slip between their fingers. Currently, as it stands you can get hundreds of grants for your skin color if you are black but if you are white you get shafted, in the SAT a black person gets an advantage while an Asian has a deduction, to begin with. Honestly, this is so disgusting towards everyone else that I am not surprised they are losing ground. This whole section is a loss basically saying how black people want this and that for just being there when unfortunately this will not help anyone, it will not happen and unfortunately all this is doing is showing the cowardice of the group.

7 out of 10 with some of the dumbest goals of a group I had ever seen and I was the one who started a group to clear the national debt so that puts it in perspective. In invest – divest we go from taking money from police to education, “The retroactive decriminalization, immediate release and record expungement of all drug related offenses and prostitution. I am going to just say this, I have lived in drug towns and no I do not want them back in the community, too many people died for trying to get ground to sell in and releasing all of them is idiocy at levels that make me question the mental health of these people. Prostitution is where some people will be surprised because if we can create a safe and respectable infrastructure whether the government is involved heavily or not, then as long as two adults agree and everyone is safe, tested and healthy, I don’t have a problem with that. The problem is all these are little sound bites. Bits of popcorn that without an actual plan means jack diddly to anything so we have five points extra to the crap pile making out twelve out of fifteen.

Rapid fire now. Radical and sustainable redistribution of wealth – Tell me how this will work you dupes this is just taking money from one and giving to another who most of cannot handle it at first. Federal and state job programs specifically for black people is just illuminating that they need these programs to get a job, that they cannot compete in a free market and if that is the case why don’t you get programs to build up their resources instead of making programs that award jobs based on skin color. Let me just put it like this, if you are trying to get a black something built you are wrong because if it cannot be done in the free market it will not be able to survive. It will fail, more money will be spent which means more negative financial decisions and the failure spins into a turd tornado of amazing proportion.

How do we fix this? First, realize you cannot be for all lives if you are just for black lives. It is A or it is B. You can do things that help everyone, but the moment you start touting how black people should get a universal income without a thought to anyone else you will be seen as the racists you are.

The black lives matter needs to reorganize it needs a structure from top to bottom and what this does is it shows people who would be taking responsibility in good or in bad decisions. If one branch does great work bringing the police and community together than show that branch you approve your work and if they riot or start trouble you need to be hard on them. This is a little piece of wisdom a chef told me while I worked on the line. “ A good meal will be talked about once while a bad one will be talked about ten times.”

Bad public relations will be ten times harder to overcome then good and having a set structure allows one to help combat that. Second, would be to actually look at what is going on around you. I have seen more violence by this group than I have from trump supporters, the KKK, and most gangs, which honestly makes me think the BLM is beyond saving at times, but we will give it a shot.

Make it structured, and look at making it inclusive of different groups of people that are not black. I do not know how many more times I need to say that line I may just need to have it engraved in the blog main page because it has been the same for the problem of so many companies. You either respect the value of all people or you cherry pick the ones you want the black lives matter group does not value all people because they cherry pick.

So be inclusive, don’t be a dick, don’t think your race gets a bye in life because of what happened a couple hundred years ago. Figure it out and get your act together or watch your numbers drop even further.

Coming to One Guy In Portland

So I recently looked at everything when it came to this blog and like everything else I decided to find a way to keep trying new things. I want this to succeed and something happened recently that I want to tell you about. No secret has been made about my health problems, and I have hoped that honesty has been appreciated. It has been part of my attempt to keep this semi-positive, to keep this place somewhat of a bright light in the darkness, but something has happened, actually, a lot has happened.

First, is the disrespect. A lot of people do not see what I am trying to do and some believe I am lazy because what they do not see is a perfect representation. It kinda hurts when people who have known me for so long make jokes about me doing nothing. I put up more videos and do more advertising than many others, and learning from nothing and even working to get one person to look at those videos, and smile than it is doing good work. Building a brand from nothing takes time that my health problems have afforded me, and I try to make sure that time has been used wisely. This disrespect comes back and causes a part of me to grind my teeth in frustration because they are working for someone else and it is only from the four of us working together that we even have what we do.

Second, is the remarks. People who had been my friend have left me with so little as a single hello leaving me to my own mind, and sometimes that is not a place anyone should be. Others who think they are better than me with their words of how they are doing so well getting a laugh at my expense without so much as a response. Bipolar depression is something that plagues me, and anyone who knows it can tell you that sometimes your own mind can be your worst enemy. After all the positive there can be so much negative that it can swallow you at any moment, and you have to expend energy that may seem so little that you may drown or pass out from exhaustion depending on the day. I know there are good people out there who care about me, but in the depression, I made something, a part of me where all the negative sits. All of my anger at everything sits here just simmering with all this.

Third, is the effect. I know I can do better, and I know I can do a lot of things different things and despite all the positivity I like to put on my YouTube channel there is places for such things and a little venom will be here because for all the good there needs to be a little venom in the world for some people to understand the point. Some people are just too stupid to get the points unless they feel a sting with it. It is unfortunate but true.

Which leads to my actions there was two ideas that I wanted to try on Youtube, but couldn’t because I think it will be better here. One is simply called Opinion Time where some of the news of the week is gonna be recapped as well as my opinion of it.

Opinion Time

Devil’s Advocate is going to be something where I show I can do better than people who have positions in businesses after big mistakes by their company. The point of this is not to show how good I am, but how good a lot of the people are that many businesses have overlooked for their positions. People have the skills but others seem to forget that so maybe a little roasting over the flames will get them to understand.

Devils Advocate

Hope you enjoy.

Going By Formula

You know most big businesses has the view of common people mirroring the way us normal people look at roaches. One of the things they hate is how everything can go cold so quickly without knowing why things do so. Well, from my little rocking chair I will impart you the knowledge that we have learned only for thousands of years, so if you are looking at all the small factors trying to find it let me drop the 4-1-1 on you.

Something special about people is that when you lie to them, they don’t like you. I know! It is amazing to know that people will trust you as far as can be thrown, and it will never kill your business, but it will definitely shave some time off windows to make your money. A couple mistakes and another business goes out, could be yours, and another takes its place, could be mine. That would only be some of you dyed in the wool business types worst nightmares.

It is a bit of a theme as of late. I like watching massive botches because it gives me hope that I can do better when I have to do it for my own business or my own plans. Formulas help with a lot of things, I used to cook so I know a few of them, but after a certain point, you have to swing for the fences and see what happens. We can all see the differences that is one of my greatest abilities. Now, I could just rip them apart on this, and I will when it is really bad, but what about the regular moments of idiocy? Well, let’s just say I will be a devil’s advocate of sorts. So, if you like the sort of thing well, you should stay in store to this blog.

Oh, How Sad Things Have Gotten

I was actually in a good mood for a moment. I think it was about thirty-seven seconds. Thirty-seven seconds is the exact amount of time for me to roll out of bed, try to stand, pop my back, move three steps, take my medicine, and sit in my chair.

Seeing there was an attack in London and already in my mind, I know what the next few actions will be. People will lie trying to make others feel better, others will give sympathy being too far away or too strapped for supplies to do anything, others will forget the day after and I will sit here knowing that some people will not be coming home.

It may be strange for so many to be sad for so long. We have normalized such tragedy as easily as the coffee being out at our work. I mean it is a horrible thing, but really the biggest knife in my craw is that it will be ultimately fruitless save for people who want to use it as something of a resume builder. People as weapons like that bother me. They truly do.

People are both the greatest and the worst weapons of time. We can build mountains, stop diseases, promote other species lives, and show our greatest bits not for awards or adulation, but for just because they need to be there. We can stand together and do great big things or as single people stand against everything wrong, but we don’t. Goodness knows that this world can be so much more than we are now except to wake up time after time to see that we are destroying each other really for what? The books we read? The colors we parade in our special moments?

There is a lot of good people, my Facebook is full of them. So when I hear about jobs with more power not being able to find one it drives me up the wall. Sometimes to do something well you just need some experience, a wild hair, schooling, or just one of the three. In fact, this whole thing where some people can’t take jobs because of stupid requirements made me think of a set of videos I think people will like. Whether some or not soon I will play Devil’s Advocate to a way of thinking that people can do more than ever expected. Despite all the good, there are also a group, a group of people where you must hyper-specialize in things that may not actually be needed. There is also a group of people who are afraid of work, but love having power or titles and since those people seem to be the biggest problems.

Oh, I noticed you, the kind that would rather have someone do something else when it is so simple to do yourself. Guess what, I want you to take those titles, those jobs, those championships and I want you to hug them close, I want you to cuddle them at night. I want you to enjoy every moment you have them because your practices will soon show cracks in your defense. You will not see it coming one day and soon you will be at the bottom again. Keep everything warm. Maybe, keep those music contracts safe because I know bands that will be great enough to claim them. I know cooks who can run circles around all network chefs, hell even I could still and I can’t feel half of my fingers. Artists who truly deserve the eye of people while so many find the rise of mediocrity like a coming messiah. Finally, I know businessman barely starting that will hold so much that really it is funny when others cast them aside. I can see that talent, and that talent is getting a little restless, so keep those accolades clutched to your chests, because you will wake up to find they have been pulled from you, and maybe you should have tried to keep up.
