The KKK to follow Zimmerman

kkk

“They see you when you’re sleeping, they know when you’re awake. They’re the Ku Klux Klan, and they’re keeping an eye on your neighborhood. Residents in Springfield, Mo., recently awoke to discover that KKK members had done their version of a mass email, wrapping neighborhood watch fliers around rocks and throwing them into yards. “You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!” the flier says, ensuring that no one in Springfield will sleep again. The Klan (whose tastefully designed “watch” website features a burning cross) says it just wants to find people who will help fight crime, but the neighbors they’re watching want none of it. “I have no use for them people,” resident Steven Burchett said. “None whatsoever.”

Ginger’s Thoughts – Thank you jurors! You all did an excellent job. Please do not seek any more minutes of fame. You made a choice that you will personally have to live with for the rest of your lives, and when another young man dies because the KKK now feels that they can commit murder and walk away NOT-GUILTY; pat yourselves on the back because you gave them the power to feel this way.

Introducing Mrs. Dora Charles

Dora Charles

Please take a moment to stare at the Black lady shown in the above picture. Do you see her standing in front of her mobile home? There is something seriously wrong with this picture. Can you guess what the problem is………..?

If you haven’t figured out the answer, allow me to formally introduce Mrs. Dora Charles, the key to Paula Deen’s cooking success. We all knew that this black woman existed; but unfortunately, we had no evidence to support our theory until now. The problem with the picture above is that Paula Deen is living in a gigantic mansion on massive land surrounded by ponds with additional cottages that she uses as a bed and breakfast, and the woman she made promises to and called her soul sister is living in a trailer!

Mrs. Charles has come forward and revealed more of Paula Deen’s slavery methodology. “Something is not right about this. We were soul sisters.” She stated, because that is what Paula Deen called her black cook from the start, even before the books and the television shows and the millions of dollars.

For 22 years, Mrs. Charles was the queen of the Deen kitchens. She helped open the Lady & Sons, the restaurant that made Paula Deeen’s career. She developed recipes, trained other cooks and made sure everything down to the collard greens tasted right.

“If it’s a Southern dish,” Paula Deen once said, “you better not put it out unless it passes this woman’s tongue.”

Mrs. Charles spent years making less than $10 an hour, even after Paula became a Food Network star. And there were tough moments. She said Paula used racial slurs. Once she wanted Mrs. Charles to ring a dinner bell in front of the restaurant, hollering for people to come and get it.

“I said, ‘I’m not ringing no bell,’ ” Mrs. Charles said. “That’s a symbol to me of what we used to do back in the day.”

For a black woman in Savannah with a ninth-grade education, though, it was good steady work. And Paula, she said, held out the promise that together, they might get rich one day.

Now Paula is reaping what she sowed as she is fighting empire-crushing accusations of racism, while Mrs. Charles is home nursing a bad shoulder caused by all of her hard years of service working for a wanna-be slave master, living in an aging trailer home on the outskirts of Savannah.

“It’s just time that everybody knows that Paula Deen don’t treat me the way they think she treat me,” she said. Good for you Mrs. Charles for speaking the truth.

Paula ran a restaurant in a Best Western hotel when Mrs. Charles, newly divorced and tired of fast-food kitchens, walked in and auditioned by cooking her version of Southern food. Paula saw dollar signs and hired her immediately. Their birthdays are a day apart, so they celebrated together. When Paula catered parties to survive until they could open the Lady & Sons, Mrs. Charles hustled right beside her.

“If I lost Dora, I would have been devastated,” Paula wrote in her 2007 memoir, “It Ain’t All About the Cooking.”

Early on, Mrs. Charles claims, Ms. Deen made her a deal: “Stick with me, Dora, and I promise you one day if I get rich you’ll get rich.”
Now, Mrs. Charles said, she wished she had gotten that in writing. “I didn’t think I had to ’cause we were real close back then,” she said.

That is where the two women’s stories diverge. Paula, through her publicity team, offered a statement denying all of Mrs. Charles’s accusations: “Fundamentally Dora’s complaint is not about race but about money. It is about an employee that despite over 20 years of generosity feels that she still deserves yet even more financial support from Paula Deen. ”

What is more, the document states, Paula “provided guidance and support through the many ups and downs of Mrs. Charles’s life.” GTFOHWTBS Paula!

Investigators for the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition have spoken to Mrs. Charles. Robert Patillo, a lawyer for the coalition, visited Savannah in June and July to interview Ms. Deen’s restaurant employees, including Mrs. Charles, who still works at the Lady & Sons. The 20 or so others Mr. Patillo spoke with were divided on the conditions for black and white workers. Some said there was bias against blacks, while others said the Lady & Sons was a terrific place to work. The Rainbow PUSH report said, “There was evidence of systemic racial discrimination and harassment at the operations.” But, it went on to say, “there is limited evidence of direct racism or racial discrimination” by Ms. Deen.

Mrs. Charles says she is not expecting any money from Ms. Deen, especially not now.

“I’m not trying to portray that she is a bad person,” she said. “I’m just trying to put my story out there that she didn’t treat me fairly and I was her soul sister.”

Mrs. Charles’s family and friends got jobs with Paula, including Ineata Jones, whom everyone called Jellyroll. She ended up as close to Paula as Mrs. Charles was. Paula used Ms. Jones for restaurant theater. At 11 a.m., when the doors opened at the Lady & Sons, she stood in front and rang an iron dinner bell, something she had asked Mrs. Charles to do as well. An image of Ms. Jones doing just that was turned into a postcard sold at Paula Deen stores.
Ms. Jones was also in charge of making hoecakes, the cornmeal pancakes served to every guest. Paula had designed a station so diners could watch them being made. At both jobs, Mrs. Charles and other employees said, Ms. Deen wanted Ms. Jones to dress in an old-style Aunt Jemima outfit.

In 2010, Lisa T. Jackson, a white manager working at Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House, the restaurant Paula set up for her brother, Earl Hiers, known as Bubba, voiced claims of racism and sexual harassment in the Deen empire.

Her complaints form the basis of a federal lawsuit winding through the court system. Paula’s deposition, in which she admitted to using a racial slur, led to devastating losses in her fortunes as several marketing partners, including four casino restaurants, the Food Network, her book publisher, Walmart and the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk, stopped working with her.

Ms. Jackson told Mrs. Charles that she was paid less than others who helped run the kitchen and who had not been there as long. Those people were white. Ms. Jackson introduced her to S. Wesley Woolf, the Savannah lawyer who would go on to file the suit.

Mr. Woolf helped Mrs. Charles and three other employees file complaints with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The agency will not make public the results of those complaints.

Around that time, Jamie Deen, the son who now runs the flagship restaurant, put Mrs. Charles on a salary of about $71,000 a year. Whether that decision was connected to the E.E.O.C. complaint remains in dispute. Mr. Deen says it was not. He gave her a bonus and the title of quality control manager. He even said the family would fix a rotting floor in her mobile home.
And, documents show, he reminded her to keep contributing to the company retirement plan, which Ms. Deen says she set up with Mrs. Charles in mind.

So Mrs. Charles went back to work, using the money to catch up on bills and help care for her four grandchildren. She did not press matters in court because, she said, she did not want the mess.

“I didn’t have nobody to stand behind me,” she said.

Lawyers on both sides of the suit are stockpiling statements.

Mrs. Charles realizes that her time with Paula Deen is over, and that she will soon leave her kitchen. But the relationship will always be there.

“I still have to be her friend if I’m God’s child,” she said. “I might feed her with a long-handled spoon, but, yeah, I’m still her friend.”

Ginger’s Thoughts – So a white woman had to help Mrs. Charles and three other employees after Jesse Jackson Push investigators left the matter unsolved. A civil right’s leader thought it was ok for Mrs. Charles to be under-paid and over-worked living in a trailer while the Deen family balled out of control. Now I understand why Jesse was kissing Paula’s ass. I lose respect for this man daily! Paula, eventually this situation will be behind you, and you will want it to remain behind you to never be brought up again. Now you know how we feel!

So Rat Killers are Served Justice, but Martin’s Killer is NOT-GUILTY?

Ratt

In this Dec. 2012 photo provided by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) shows a weak and lethargic rat who was found in a tub among at least 200 other juvenile rats, many of whom were severely dehydrated and dying at a breeding center in Lake Elsinore, Calif., authorities said Monday, July 22, 2013. Riverside County authorities say two men have been charged with 106 counts of felony animal cruelty for the way they treated nearly 20,000 rats and reptiles found diseased, dying or dead. So two men are charged with felonies for mistreating rats and snakes, but Zimmerman is walking around saving people from a strategically placed truck accident. You people are worse than street hustlers!

Furthermore, LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rescue crews went into a warehouse last year to save nearly 20,000 rats and reptiles at a wholesale distributor of exotic snakes and rodents, encountering a sight so revolting that they needed crisis counselors to cope. Yet whites and house niggas are telling America to move on from the murder of an innocent young teen.

Many of the animal control workers came out gasping for air and sickened by the heinous sights and smells, including a mixture of death, disease, decay and ammonia from accumulated urine and feces in rat bins. Officials with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals called it the largest-ever seizure of animals in California.

The owner and manager of the business have now been arrested and charged with more than 100 counts each of felony animal cruelty for the way they treated the rats and reptiles. Their company, Global Captive Breeders, raised rats and snakes that were sold at pet stores and swap meets.

The Riverside County district attorney filed the case Friday and a judge issued warrants for owner Mitchell Steven Behm, 54, and company manager David Delgado, also known as Jose Magana, 29. A message left for Behm’s attorney was not immediately returned, and a lawyer for Delgado could not be located.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals initiated the investigation after sending an undercover operative to work at the breeding facility in Lake Elsinore, 70 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Some of the animals were already dead by the time rescue workers got there. The ones still living were too sick to treat and too toxic to move, and had to be euthanized.

The toll the operation took on workers ranged from physical to emotional, said Capt. Cindy Machado, who headed up a team of workers from the Marin Humane Society in Novato and coordinated veterinarians who came from all over the country for the weeklong December operation.

People were throwing up because of the ammonia fumes and “there were times you had to run (Trayvon Martin had to run too!) outside just to catch a breath of fresh air,” she said. People emotionally broke down and had to be excused. Several people ended up with colds and sore throats. “I lost my voice,” she said.

“I had some idea what to expect but little could have prepared me for the overwhelming stench of death and decay you could smell from the outside of the facility. This sounds like me and my family talking as we rolled through New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina! On the inside it was overpowering,” said Daphna Nachminovitch, senior vice president of cruelty investigations for PETA.

There were 18,400 feeder rats and over 600 snakes, black tree monitors, tokay geckos and sulcata tortoises, Nachminovitch said.

Most of the rats were without food in overcrowded bins and because of a faulty water system, were either drowning or dying of thirst. “Some were literally eating each other alive,” she said. This sounds like an excerpt from the Amistad ship!

Mitch Behm got a conditional use permit for the business in 2009, said Justin Carlson, a spokesman for Lake Elsinore. The city received one anonymous complaint about the business before PETA stepped in, Carlson said. The company’s website listed corporate offices in Rancho Santa Margarita.

A whistleblower contacted PETA and the animal welfare agency sent an undercover investigator to get a job at the business. The investigator documented rats being grabbed by their tails and slammed against poles, stomped on, shot with a BB gun, frozen alive and drowned. The undercover worker was there for two months, and Nachminovitch said that period of time was needed to document enough photo and video evidence to obtain a search warrant. In addition, the neglect was so far advanced by the time the whistle-blower called that it would have been impossible to save the animals.

The 6,100-square-foot warehouse had separate entrances to the reptile and rat rooms, but the snakes didn’t fare any better than the rats, Nachminovitch said. Some of the boas and pythons were 15-feet long. The animals were euthanize in the warehouse and taken to a rendering plant, she said. Every rescue worker sets out to save animals, Machado said. But there is also satisfaction in giving an animal in pain a humane, peaceful passing, she said.

“I have been with PETA for 15 years and there was an unprecedented amount of active suffering while we were standing there. I am grateful we could end it,” Nachminovitch said.

Ginger’s Thoughts – Love, compassion, and a need for justice to be served, is strongly felt when reading this article pertaining to the mistreatment of rats and reptiles. It boggles me how these same types of emotions were not shown for the mistreatment of Trayvon Martin. I am so proud of every celebrity who is Boycotting Florida; Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye West, Young Jeezy, Rod Stewart, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Trey Songz, Rihanna, R Kelly, Alicia Keys, Usher, Mary Mary, Eddie Levert, Pattie Labelle, Mary J, Rolling Stones, Joe, Will I AM, Keyshia Cole, Erykah Badu, Wale, Frankie Beverly and Parliament.

I Know It Was You….

My children and I went to the funeral of my Aunt Aline Lenoir today in Kentwood, Louisiana.

I met my Aunt Aline in my teens. My mother could no longer afford to take care of me, so she sent me to live with my Father’s side of the family. I felt like an orphan! I felt alone, nervous, and afraid of the unknown. I remember the first day I met this light skinned, green eyed, fast talking beautiful woman. She talked to me and it felt as if she was speaking to my soul secretly telling me that I was ok, and that everything was going to be alright. And it was!

My Aunt had taught her generation the true meaning of love. I mean, a lot of people call themselves Christians and wear WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) jewelry, and when tested, those hypocrites fail every time! But her Daughters, and their children, and their children, treated me as if I was one of their own. This family was there for me when others had closed their hearts to me, and I will never be able to find adjectives that could explain how much I love and appreciate them.

I did not visit My Aunt before she passed and that is a mistake that I will never make again. I am so sorry Auntie. Lesson Learned.

But the feeling of warmth that I felt each time I saw one of my family members, and the tears I held back as I hugged each one tightly in my arms, and the feeling of knowing that I was amongst people who truly loved me and my children; I know it was your Spirit in our presence each time.

I love you Auntie, and I know it was you.

Happy Birthday Grandma!!! The 5 Things She Taught Me

dean01 (2)

Today, July 15, 2013, my Grandmother has made 71 years old, and so I want to take a moment to dedicate a post to her, and every awesome quality that she represents.

There are five things that she grilled in us and they are as follows:

1. Trust God and Pray because no matter what the situation looks like, if you pray from your heart, God will fix it!

2. Be an independent woman, make your own money, I worked three jobs my whole life, so do better with the one that you have, and if your man can’t piss, tell him to get off the toilet. (This means if he is not helping you, then put his ass out!

3. Every woman must have a house of their own, because no two women can live together unless they like eating hamburgers!

4. Never let your right hand know what your hand is doing.

5. Do not hold people in your heart. If you holding on to hate in your heart for them, then don’t even go to Church because God is not hearing nothing you are saying and you stupid because you holding your own blessings up!

Well Grandma, I felt you on 1 through 4, but let’s keep it real; until I get em back, I continue to hold them in my heart…well what can I say; I’m a work in progress!

Ginger’s Thoughts – I love you with everything and I am so proud of you. You were born on a plantation. You dropped out of school fairly early and picked cotton and sugar canes to provide for your parents and siblings. You left your comfort zone to move to New Orleans for more opportunities for your generations and we are Beasts because of it. We ain’t scared of s@@t! You worked you butt off and now you are a home owner, driving around like an “OG!” You live what you preach and if I could become half of the woman you are, I will be grateful.

Check out you Happy Birthday Song..Yo Gabba Gabba, Yo Gabba Gabba..

Zimmerman; I Pray a Real Criminal Come For Your Ass!

Not Guilty? I’m speechless so I’m going to allow Brother Malcolm to talk!

“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”
― Malcolm X

“To have once been a criminal is no disgrace. To remain a criminal is the disgrace”
― Malcolm X

“And because I had been a hustler, I knew better than all whites knew, and better than nearly all of the black ‘leaders’ knew, that actually the most dangerous black man in America was the ghetto hustler. Why do I say this? The hustler, out there in the ghetto jungles, has less respect for the white power structure than any other Negro in North America. The ghetto hustler is internally restrained by nothing. He has no religion, no concept of morality, no civic responsibility, no fear–nothing. To survive, he is out there constantly preying upon others, probing for any human weakness like a ferret. The ghetto hustler is forever frustrated, restless, and anxious for some ‘action’. Whatever he undertakes, he commits himself to it fully, absolutely. What makes the ghetto hustler yet more dangerous is his ‘glamour’ image to the school-dropout youth in the ghetto. These ghetto teen-agers see the hell caught by their parents struggling to get somewhere, or see that they have given up struggling in the prejudiced, intolerant white man’s world. The ghetto teen-agers make up their own minds they would rather be like the hustlers whom they see dressed ‘sharp’ and flashing money and displaying no respect for anybody or anything. So the ghetto youth become attracted to the hustler worlds of dope, thievery, prostitution, and general crime and immorality.”
― Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X
