This represents the twisted and warped mind of #PresidentTrump. You better #WakeUpAmerica before it's too late! The time bomb is ticking and it won't be pretty when it goes off...

A Note to the POTUS...

If you want respect #PresidentTrump, learn how to give it! As for the #NFL, I don't watch football that much anyway so they can take the game and shove it if they can't speak up for their Black players! #BlackLivesMatter #NoKaepernickNoNFL

The Negro Mother By Langston Hughes

Children, I come back today
to tell you a story of the long dark way
that I had to climb, that I had to know,
in order that the race might live and grow. 
Look at my face, dark as the night,
yet shining like the sun with love's true light.
I am the dark girl who crossed the red sea,
carrying in my body the seed of the free.
I am the woman who worked in the field,
bringing the cotton and the corn to yield.
I am the one who labored as a slave,
beaten and mistreated for the work that I gave.
Children sold away from me, I'm husband sold, too.
No safety, no love, no respect was I due.
Three hundred years in the deepest South,
but God put a song and a prayer in my mouth.
God put a dream like steel in my soul.
Now, through my children, I'm reaching the goal.
Now, through my children, young and free,
I realized the blessing deed to me.
I couldn't read then. I couldn't write.
I had nothing back there in the night.
Sometimes, the valley was filled with tears,
but I kept trudging on through the lonely years.
Sometimes, the road was hot with the sun,
but I had to keep on till my work was done.
I had to keep on! No stopping for me.
I was the seed of the coming free.
I nourished the dream that nothing could smother,
deep in my breast, the Negro mother.
I had only hope then, but now through you,
dark ones of today, my dreams must come true.
All you dark children in the world out there,
remember my sweat, my pain, my despair.
Remember my years, heavy with sorrow,
and make of those years a torch for tomorrow.
Make of my pass a road to the light,
out of the darkness, the ignorance, the night.
Lift high my banner out of the dust.
Stand like free men supporting my trust.
Believe in the right, let none push you back.
Remember the whip and the slaver's track.
Remember how the strong in struggle and strife,
still bar you the way, and deny you life.
But march ever forward, breaking down bars.
Look ever upward at the sun and the stars.
Oh, my dark children, may my dreams and my prayers
impel you forever up the great stairs.
For I will be with you till no white brother
dares keep down the children of the Negro Mother.

Not all heroes wear capes. Colin continues to give back to his community with his $100,000 donation to four charities, totaling $900,000 in donations this year. He isn't even playing right now, but the NFLPA still named him its Week 1 Community MVP. Sign the #NoKaepernickNoNFL petition @ Change and join the NFL boycott until he is signed to a team. Unfortunately, the artist of this awesome sketch is unknown right now.

Firefighter Says Saving One Dog Is
'More Important' Than A Million Black People

He actually referred to us as the N-word. Why is he a firefighter?
So, in addition to cops killing us for no good reason, now we can't even
expect firefighters to save our lives as they would others during a fire. SMH...
And, some people still have the audacity to not understand #BlackLivesMatter.
