Trust Fund Slumlord Kushner Thinks Trump Cares More About Black People Than Black People Do

Jared Kushner, aka the husband half of Jarvanka, has plenty to say about what Black people do, think, and believe. As a matter of fact, he feels so comfortable jaw jacking about Black people, that he sometimes finds himself with his entire foot in his mouth after having his ass handed to him by actual Black People. Jared, who many say is the very type of slumlord who keeps Black People poor by forcing them to pay rents much higher than the living space is actually worth, thinks he has found the key issue that is keeping Black people from success. For Kushner, it’s not the systemic racism, or the slumlords who bleed every penny out of poor, widowed Black mothers, no, never that. The reason Black people are not successful, is because Black people, even after all Trump has done for us, don’t care about our own success.

But on Monday, Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, played into a racist stereotype by seeming to question whether Black Americans “want to be successful” despite what he said Mr. Trump had done for them.

In a jeremiad that puts that old bag of horse hair and sweat, Cliven Bundy, to shame, Jared Kushner unleashed a torrent of propagandized stereotypes about Black People that sought to prove that President Trump’s policies were the very best thing for us. There is a problem stopping Black People from succeeding with Trump’s policies; Black People. Black people simply prefer to not be successful. That’s his “wise” conclusion. I suppose he believes we’d prefer to leave all the thinking, and success-making to people of European descent, because we just don’t want to deal with not having the stress that is caused by multi-generational poverty. We like suffering, we love being poor, because the color of our skin totally controls us and makes us completely different than everyone else.

One thing we’ve seen in a lot of the Black community, which is mostly Democrat, is that President Trump’s policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that they’re complaining about,” Mr. Kushner said in an interview with “Fox & Friends,” the president’s favorite morning cable show. “But he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.”

When has Jared ever been in a Black Community where he wasn’t fucking over his tenants? I keep asking what exact policies Trump has already implemented for Black People, and all I hear about are “Opportunity Zones” and I know they can’t possibly be talking about that, because how many poor, Black people have the money to invest in anything but their next meal? The kill line here is a real humdinger, maybe we should explore it a little more.

“But he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.”

Is Mr. Ivanka out of his damn mind? What a complete and total White Assshole. You’d think he was a wax dummy for all the self awareness he shows by saying the stupidest shit ever said by an American citizen not named Donald Trump Jr., or Eric Trump. Trump wants US to be successful more than we want it for ourselves? Really? Didn’t Trump give most of the stimulus money to white people, and pretty much leave us out? Yes.

In the interview, Mr. Kushner said that after the killing in May of George Floyd, a Black man, in police custody — an event that set off global protests about systemic racism, and which Mr. Kushner referred to as the “George Floyd situation” — a lot of people were more concerned with what he called “virtue signaling” than in coming up with “solutions.”

Oh. I have a solution. Cops can just stop killing unarmed Black people. They can be mandated to deescalate rather than given license to kill us with impunity. They can lose their qualified immunity and have to face charges whenever they manage to kill some unarmed civilian. They can act like Black lives actually matter.

I’ll just say it. Jared Kushner doesn’t know a damn thing about Black People, and needs to shut his mouth just in case his Daddy-in-law loses his election next week and puts him in jeopardy of going to prison where so many of us “virtue signalling” Black People reside. Nothing he said makes any type of sense unless you are as big of a racist asshole as he is. Jared Kushner needs to hurry up and shut his raggedy, stupid, wretched mouth right now. There might come a time after his Pappy-in-law won’t be able to use the powers of the Presidency to save lil Jared when his mouth writes a check his narrow ass can’t cash. If that day comes, I’ll be around to laugh and laugh and laugh.

Tone Deaf Bernie Tells Black Kid To Be Respectful So Cops Don’t Blow His Head Off

Bernie Sanders showed up at the Presidential Justice Forum at Benedict College wearing his most tone-deaf set of Archie Bunker ears and a pitifully myopic lens to view race and criminal justice through. Bernie “I was chained to a Black Woman” Sanders was a long way off from those halcyon days of yesteryear when he was still somewhat up to date on “The Black Experience” and it showed. Already Old, White, and from Vermont, he decided to show up and answer some basic ass predictable questions.

From NewsOne:

An audience member who identified himself as a student studying sports management at Benedict asked Sanders a question that by all measures should be pretty standard in 2019.

See, I’m not just being and asshole because Bernie gets on my damn nerves, the questions were super softballs, so easy a Biden could answer them without looking like a deer caught in the headlights.

Here goes the easy ass question…

“If I was your son, what advice would you give me the next time I’m pulled over by a police officer?” the student asked.

Perfect! Bernie will say that his daughter wouldn’t have to deal with such bullshit, and that’s the problem. We shouldn’t have two sets of rules in the Year of Our Lord 2019! Bernie will declare then that this injustice SHALL NOT STAND, he will sympathize with the young man, and then discuss some solutions that he prepared when doing research for this appearance. Right?

But Sanders seemed to be a bit caught off guard judging from his answer, which finally came after an awkward delay that included asking the student to adjust the microphone and repeat portions of the question more than once even though it seemed to be heard just fine by everybody else.


Whoa now!! Hot damn, that was a mess and a half! How embarrassing for the inheritor of the legacy of MLK Jr. Y’all. Bernie straight up acted like he ain’t heard the words that I heard come from my laptop from WAY WAY WAAAAY across the room. I get that he was stalling for time, but come on man! You had to know that question was coming, Bernie. It kinda looked like he didn’t even want to answer, and with how much he loves talking and being centered, I found that to be quite the surprise.

Sanders responded in part by saying that he would tell his theoretical Black son to get the cop’s information “in a polite way” and “respect what they are doing so that you don’t get shot in the back of the head.”

Um? Whoa. Did Bernie just tell a Black man to be polite and respectful so that he doesn’t “get shot in the back of the head?”

He legit says he’d tell the kid to respect the job the police officer is doing so they don’t get shot in the back of the head. OMG. Please tell us how a scared black kid would be able to get the cop’s info? Wouldn’t making demands simply antagonize a racist asshole cop?

As far as being polite as possible is concerned….

Bernie. We already ARE polite as possible. Stop.

I, of course, had much to say about this to Twitter, so here you go, a nice tweet from the handle I am currently using. I am in my incognegro phase while I hide from the dumdum that reported me to the FBI.

Okay. I got an amazing amount of stupid-ass answers that cycled between “Bernie is a GENIUS!!!” and “Why are you so MEAN TO SAINT BERNIE JESUS THE GOOD?!”

Many Berners seemed to find eternal condemnation in the line, “How is this one bit helpful?” because they are still showing up to complain. Lucky for me, I used Twitter Block-chain on Katie Halper’s account, so most of my usual trolls have to make brand new accounts to fuck with me. That’s called “work” so most of the Bros don’t even bother with it.

Most people expected Biden to bust out with a new installment of “The Life and Times Of Corn-pop and Smokin’ Joe” when he got his turn at the mic. But it was not to be. Sadly, for all the silly ass Joe haters, Joe Biden really is a decent guy, just like Kamala said in the first place.


See Bernie? You didn’t have to say the part about being polite so the cop doesn’t blow the back of our heads off. Those words coming out of the mouth of an older white male of power and privilege sounded unempathetic and seriously out of touch. We are some of the world’s most polite people when it comes to police interactions. You didn’t need to go there. We don’t even NEED you to come up with a very good answer. All we need is for you to give a shit about the injustice of it all. I, for one, KNOW you do give a shit. It’s just not really your priority or the lens you view America through. Biden has looked at this from many perspectives; there was a time he was on the wrong side of criminal justice issues that affect Black Americans. And while Biden still has some shit he needs to own. But if we look at him side by side with Joe Biden 1989, we see that Joe has come a long fucking way.

Maybe that’s a part of the problem when it comes to Bernie Sanders and his tone-deaf outbursts. People constantly tell me that Bernie never changes, Bernie has always been the same guy saying the same things. Yet, the world has moved on.

 

No one has ever seriously accused Sanders of being racist. In fact, Sanders routinely makes it a point to call Trump “a racist.” That’s probably why people were finding it curious that a presidential candidate who has long-billed himself as being a “progressive” voice offered what sure seemed like an outdated perspective on how Black America is policed.

Maybe being progressive on economics while opposing the mass incarceration of millions of Black Men and Women isn’t enough if you want to truly understand the day in day out battles we fight against white supremacy. Let’s get real for a second, Bernie frames black issues as though prisons and poverty are the totality of our existence. He is wrong. Hopefully, in the future Bernie will gain a deeper understanding of the richness and rewards, as well as the perils and permutations of oppression we face.

Why Is This White Man Not In Jail For Killing Atatiana In Her Own Home?

Hold me, Jesus.

Although I am not religious, I retain many of the accoutrements of Black Christianity, namely my pepperings of the conversation with many “Oh, Lords!” and “Thank Gods!”

Sadly, I find them pouring out now. Atatiana Jefferson.

You may as well go ahead and remember that name now. Sear it into your brain. Because in the next five minutes you will go from not knowing who Atatiana was, to demanding justice for her death RIGHT NOW. Atatiana. Jefferson.

Atatiana was her fathers only daughter, she was a beloved stepdaughter, an aunt, a sister, a cousin, and a good friend. She wanted to be a doctor. Now her father wants some goddamn answers, he wants them now, and he does not want a fucking hug from his daughter’s killer.

Why is she dead? We don’t know.

It was late at night, and Atatiana was playing video games with her nephew when she heard something at the window. She approached the window to peer out into the night, and before she could understand what was even going on, she had been shot by a Dallas Fort Worth Police officer. She would not survive. And we don’t know why.

Jefferson was by all accounts pretty much a model citizen. Saving up for medical school and to care for her family members, she had recently moved back home where she should have been safe. But she wasn’t.

WHAT THE FUCK, TEXAS???

There seems to be a real problem in these United States where nobody who is black is allowed to feel safe at anytime. And if you do feel safe, you always have moments where you know your safety is an illusion, or better yet, a delusion. We are not ever safe. Whether on your couch eating Ice Cream, in your room playing video games, on your couch sleeping, there is always the knowledge that a cop can come in and kill you. And if you’re black, they often get away with it, or at least do far less time than the average black man would do with the same verdict. The worst part? You are expected to forgive.

Atatiana’s father is not here to give forgiveness. He doesn’t want your hug, he doesn’t want to comfort you, he want his goddamn child back. He cannot have that.

So give him Justice.


I am sick inside.

The family of Atatiana Jefferson called on Monday for the firing and prosecution of the Fort Worth police officer who shot her dead inside her bedroom after arriving to conduct a welfare check.

Her door was open because she wanted the breeze, her neighbor was worried because it was unusual. The neighbor did nothing wrong. The police officer in question did something incomprehensible; something nobody understands. Nobody. There was an 8 year old child in the house who very well could have been the one at that window… That child will be scarred for life.

The interim chief of Fort Worth police, Ed Kraus, subsequently said the officer, named as Aaron Dean, had resigned and would have been fired had he not done so. Kraus said Dean may face charges.

May. Why the hell would there be any question of him facing charges? That man did not behave as anyone would ever expect a Police Officer to behave. This tragedy contains shades of the tragedy of Tamir Rice, the quickness to shoot, before the person had the time to register that you were even there.

A life gone in a flash.

Atatiana will not become a doctor. A dream, once deferred, has now been denied by death. Moments like this are made to drain hope from you, to break pieces of your heart that have been broken so many times you feel like you can’t take one more thing. And really, it’s a miracle you have anything left to break at all. We mourn again. And wait for the next one while holding fast to our illusions of safety and our delusion that we won’t be next. It will be one of us, it always is.

It’s hard to see any good that can come out of such a senseless act. Maybe the Police Department will raise it’s standards in some way, increase diversity, more bias training and training in general. It won’t do Atatiana Jefferson any good, perhaps the only thing that would have helped, would have been for that Cop to not have been a Cop at all. And now he is not a Cop.

 

ARREST HIM.
