Food For Thought: Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, Donna Brazile, Nina Turner

Three African-American Women who told their Truth:

Wilson: What Happened to Sgt. Johnson's Widow in a Car She was in with the Widow. In turn, she was called an "empty barrel" by so-called General John Kelly and was lied on by him.

Turner: Her version of what happened in Nevada. In turn, she was shunned by others for telling what she saw with her own eyes and told, with her own mouth.

Brazile: Wrote a book on what she found out after becoming an intern head of a National Party Organization and a year + later, after keeping silent the whole time and afterward to help that political party. In turn, she is called a turncoat by others.

What do Wilson, Turner, and Brazile have in common? All Proud African-American Women that told THEIR TRUTH and Others Could Stand That They Did.

We Support All Of Our African-American Sisters, Telling Their Truth!!

Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson has nothing to say to Trump after controversial condolence call

Source: Washington Post

Nineteen days after her husband’s death and two days after his wrenching burial, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson said she has “nothing to say” to President Trump, whose condolence call pulled the grieving widow into the center of a national controversy.

“Very upset and hurt; it made me cry even worse,” Myeshia Johnson told “Good Morning America” about her conversation with the president.

Making her first public comments since she took the call from Trump last week — on the same day her husband’s remains were flown back to the United States — Johnson recalled that the president said her husband “knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyways. And it made me cry. I was very angry at the tone of his voice, and how he said it.”

She added: “I didn’t say anything. I just listened.”

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson DESERVES AN APOLOGY from Trump and the ONLY WORDS THAT MATTERS in this whole scenario is GOLD STAR SPOUSE MYESHIA JOHNSON!

Full video of Frederica Wilson's 2015 FBI speech shows John Kelly got it wrong

Source: Sun-Sentinel

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, criticizing Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, misrepresented a 2015 speech she made at the opening of a new FBI building, an exclusive South Florida Sun Sentinel video of her speech shows.

Kelly made the comments at the White House Thursday while discussing President Donald Trump’s conversations with the families of four soldiers killed in an Ambush in Niger earlier this month.

Kelly criticized Wilson for listening in on the conversation between Trump and the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson. Wilson was in a car with the widow and Johnson’s mother going to the airport for the arrival of Johnson’s body, and the call was placed on speakerphone.

Kelly then continued his criticism of Wilson, mentioning the 2015 dedication of the Miramar FBI building, saying she focused in her speech that she “got the money” for the building, a sum he said of $20 million.

Wilson said Kelly’s comment was a fabrication, that she wasn’t even elected to Congress when the funding for the building was approved. A Sun Sentinel video of the event supports Wilson’s version of the events.

Wilson did take credit for securing approval of the naming of the building just days before the dedication for two slain FBI agents.

Beyond Sick Of Not LABELING A White Male Terrorist -- A White Male Terrorist (Las Vegas Massacre)

The Shooter and Terrorist Is A White Man With An Automatic Rifle That Killed Up To 60+ and Injured...500+ Innocent Lives attending a Country Music Concert --- So It Cannot Be Terrorism -- because the Shooter Was White and Male....

Which is straight up BS by the way. This shit is beyond, beyond. Why if it's a White Male it "Cannot" be what it is TERRORISM but if they are any other race and do the same thing -- it is Terrorism.

From A Friend.....About The Flag, Military, National Anthem and Being Black

"I served my four years in the Air Force I love my country to death and wouldn't want to live anywhere else but that flag and the national anthem doesn't represent me (because) you're still treated like excuse my language a n***a.

I don't care how long you served in the military or if you fought for your country you Black and you always will be to the White man.

You don't walk around with I served my country for 20 or 30 years on your back to ID yourself so you still just the black man to them. I still get pulled over in my Cadillac at 2 am ET in the morning coming home from work because I'm black no other reason not speeding or breaking any laws.

So bottom line why should I respect something that does not respect me. And some military people say if it wasn't for the military I wouldn't be where I am -- You work for that, they didn't give it to you for free."

That's REAL TALK, Right There!!!

#FYI -- The NFL Is A PRIVATE EMPLOYER.....That....

Contracts with associated players. Contractors across the league as of Sunday (and may exist for other Sunday's in the future), have allowed its associated contractees to express by kneeling, locking arms or other means their opposition to what was recently Tweeted and verbally expressed by Trump. End of story. Time to move on.

Whoever cannot understand the above should be ignored, including the so-called Cheeto of the United States.

The First White President - Masterfully Written Article In The Atlantic By Ta-Nehisi Coates

Be Forewarned: This Truth Written Will Make You Uncomfortable and That Is The Point.

As To Not Confront What Has Occurred In Allowing The First White President Into The Most Powerful Position In The Land - The President of The United States - and the Continual Denial For Comfort and Sensibilities - The Heirloom Factor That Placed Him In That Position - Is Frankly BS People of Color Must Refuse To Allow To Be Continually Shoved Under The Table......

From The Masterful Generation X African-American Writer: TA-NEHISI COATES

It is insufficient to state the obvious of Donald Trump: that he is a white man who would not be president were it not for this fact. With one immediate exception, Trump’s predecessors made their way to high office through the passive power of whiteness—that bloody heirloom which cannot ensure mastery of all events but can conjure a tailwind for most of them. Land theft and human plunder cleared the grounds for Trump’s forefathers and barred others from it.

Once upon the field, these men became soldiers, statesmen, and scholars; held court in Paris; presided at Princeton; advanced into the Wilderness and then into the White House. Their individual triumphs made this exclusive party seem above America’s founding sins, and it was forgotten that the former was in fact bound to the latter, that all their victories had transpired on cleared grounds. No such elegant detachment can be attributed to Donald Trump—a president who, more than any other, has made the awful inheritance explicit.

His political career began in advocacy of birtherism, that modern recasting of the old American precept that black people are not fit to be citizens of the country they built. But long before birtherism, Trump had made his worldview clear. He fought to keep blacks out of his buildings, according to the U.S. government; called for the death penalty for the eventually exonerated Central Park Five; and railed against “lazy” black employees. “Black guys counting my money! I hate it,” Trump was once quoted as saying. “The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.” After his cabal of conspiracy theorists forced Barack Obama to present his birth certificate, Trump demanded the president’s college grades (offering $5 million in exchange for them), insisting that Obama was not intelligent enough to have gone to an Ivy League school, and that his acclaimed memoir, Dreams From My Father, had been ghostwritten by a white man, Bill Ayers.

It is often said that Trump has no real ideology, which is not true—his ideology is white supremacy, in all its truculent and sanctimonious power. Trump inaugurated his campaign by casting himself as the defender of white maidenhood against Mexican “rapists,” only to be later alleged by multiple accusers, and by his own proud words, to be a sexual violator himself. White supremacy has always had a perverse sexual tint. Trump’s rise was shepherded by Steve Bannon, a man who mocks his white male critics as “cucks.”

The word, derived from cuckold, is specifically meant to debase by fear and fantasy—the target is so weak that he would submit to the humiliation of having his white wife lie with black men. That the slur cuck casts white men as victims aligns with the dicta of whiteness, which seek to alchemize one’s profligate sins into virtue. So it was with Virginia slaveholders claiming that Britain sought to make slaves of them. So it was with marauding Klansmen organized against alleged rapes and other outrages. So it was with a candidate who called for a foreign power to hack his opponent’s email and who now, as president, is claiming to be the victim of “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history.”

In Trump, white supremacists see one of their own. Only grudgingly did Trump denounce the Ku Klux Klan and David Duke, one of its former grand wizards—and after the clashes between white supremacists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August, Duke in turn praised Trump’s contentious claim that “both sides” were responsible for the violence.

To Trump, whiteness is neither notional nor symbolic but is the very core of his power. In this, Trump is not singular. But whereas his forebears carried whiteness like an ancestral talisman, Trump cracked the glowing amulet open, releasing its eldritch energies. The repercussions are striking: Trump is the first president to have served in no public capacity before ascending to his perch. But more telling, Trump is also the first president to have publicly affirmed that his daughter is a “piece of ass.” The mind seizes trying to imagine a black man extolling the virtues of sexual assault on tape (“When you’re a star, they let you do it”), fending off multiple accusations of such assaults, immersed in multiple lawsuits for allegedly fraudulent business dealings, exhorting his followers to violence, and then strolling into the White House. But that is the point of white supremacy—to ensure that that which all others achieve with maximal effort, white people (particularly white men) achieve with minimal qualification. Barack Obama delivered to black people the hoary message that if they work twice as hard as white people, anything is possible. But Trump’s counter is persuasive: Work half as hard as black people, and even more is possible.

For Trump, it almost seems that the fact of Obama, the fact of a black president, insulted him personally. The insult intensified when Obama and Seth Meyers publicly humiliated him at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2011. But the bloody heirloom ensures the last laugh. Replacing Obama is not enough—Trump has made the negation of Obama’s legacy the foundation of his own. And this too is whiteness. “Race is an idea, not a fact,” the historian Nell Irvin Painter has written, and essential to the construct of a “white race” is the idea of not being a nigger.

Before Barack Obama, niggers could be manufactured out of Sister Souljahs, Willie Hortons, and Dusky Sallys. But Donald Trump arrived in the wake of something more potent—an entire nigger presidency with nigger health care, nigger climate accords, and nigger justice reform, all of which could be targeted for destruction or redemption, thus reifying the idea of being white. Trump truly is something new—the first president whose entire political existence hinges on the fact of a black president. And so it will not suffice to say that Trump is a white man like all the others who rose to become president. He must be called by his rightful honorific—America’s first white president.

The four part article/essay is available in audio form here. It is suggested the entire piece is read and/or listened to -- to truly understand how and why Donald Trump is in the office of President of the United States.
