This doesn’t require any fancy words, extensive paragraphs or colorful language for the simple reason that it doesn’t take a lot of brain power to know what a punk-ass racist bully this nation’s president is. But some would deny it up and down while others will back him up, justifying his racism. And honestly, there’s nothing that could be said that would convince them that the man living in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is perhaps the worst man for the job. Then again, those people may be terrible people themselves, and birds of a feather…
So, what did 45 do this time? Well, in short, he lashed out at NFL football players kneeling during the National Anthem one of his usual Trumpian tirades. Keep in mind, that he was never that livid about the white supremacists terrorizing Charlottesville this past August, a gathering that resulted in violence and death. In fact, he referred to them as “very fine people” while an NFL protester, who’s black, is a “son of a bitch”. So, how exactly is this not a nod to racism?
You know what? I don’t want to know. There’s nothing that can be said to defend Trump for this or any of his bullshit since he was sworn in office. I’m inclined to assume that those who would still go out of their way to argue in favor of Trump, more or less, share his Neanderthal traits. They’re just as racist and angry as he is, and they look up to him for that.
It seems like with privilege comes a delusion of being oppressed. So, it’s less than a surprise to know there are men who think that they have it hard simply because they’re males and that feminism is the main obstacle blocking their “liberation” despite that living in a male dominated society where patriarchy still reigns supreme.
Yep. You read that correct. It’s men who ‘re struggling. Not women.
If and when you hear them, you’d think they’re young boys who think girls are icky and have cooties. But these are grown-ass men. Some young. Some old. All bitter.
However, there are some who are the fungus in the bog that is men’s activism. I recently learned that there’s a word for them, incel, which is a portmanteau of ‘involuntarily celibate’. An incel is usually a male who’s pissed off at women for one main reason. As implied in his designation, he can’t get laid.
To an incel, women are supposed to be sexual to ALL men, including and especially himself. He sees them more as sex drones and less like people. And when he sees women so much as talk to a guy, the incel is pissed off.
Even a woman getting freaky with a statue for laughs will set them off.
Incels believe that the reasons they’re alone and untouched are due to their physical ‘flaws’ and(or) social awkwardness. They never consider that maybe, just maybe, it’s their raging misogyny or shitty personality. Why would they? They think they’re the real victims in a world where women chase after ‘alpha males’ while leaving ‘beta males’ like them in the wasteland to rot.
Of course, the irony is that while they see women as sex objects, they won’t hold back in calling them sluts, among other disgraceful names, and then wonder why women won’t go near them.
You would most likely find incels in the darkest corners of the internet venting their 19th century anger in subreddit forums, for instance. Some of them are also members of hate groups. It’s plausible seeing as how a lot of Neo-Nazis and alt-right goons see white women as machines needed to procreate and keep the Caucasian race going on Earth, and how their biggest threats are the penises and sperm of blacks and Jews.
Is there any wonder why they see Donald Trump as their savior?
They seem harmless trolls that dwell in their rooms allowing their minds to go idle, but incels – when pushed far enough – can be threats in the real world with enough hatred and firepower to take out their frustrations on innocent people. The most recent and memorable example was Elliot Rodger, the young dude responsible for terrorizing Isla Vista, California on May 23, 2014 taking out six people and injuring fourteen others all because he couldn’t get a woman that would fuck him.
Another lesser known incel helms from Australia. White supremacist Michael James Holt threatened to carry out a mass killing at a mall in New South Wales, because – you guessed it – he couldn’t get a date. Thankfully, he was arrested and charged before he could carry out his rage-filled ambition.
Some incels don’t hold back on how much they see women as problems. They are rape apologists. They salute any act of violence against them, even if it results in deaths. And they’re pissed off enough to blame them for damn near everything, including the fall of the Roman Empire.
Yet, some of them think they’re good guys. But it’s hard to agree with their own self-assessment that they’re good when checking out their misogynistic rants online. Obviously, they need help and soon before we see more mass killings done due to their unhealthy and unchecked thirst for sex.
Who was Kenneka Jenkins?
She was a 19 year-old Chicago teen who went out to a party with some friends Friday night around 11:30 p.m. Sadly, she was found dead in a suburban hotel freezer that following Sunday after midnight.
How did Jenkins die?
Unknown. Autopsy reports are still pending as of this writing, and police are tight-lipped. However, the story has taken the internet by storm as many people, including Jenkin’s mother and sister, suspect foul play.
What do people on the internet think?
Many people also suspect that something’s fishy, so much so that they believe Jenkins was violated by a group of men prior to being murdered and left in the freezer. There are other conspiracy theories that center around robbery, trafficking and rape. So far, nothing is confirmed as to what led to her death.
Are there any clues to Jenkins disappearance?
Police told the teen’s family that they spotted her on surveillance video from the hotel “staggering” near the front desk around 3:20 a.m. Saturday. According to reports, the police initially believed she went into the freezer by herself.
Police confirmed Tuesday that they were investigating a video posted by one of Jenkins friends on Facebook. The video, which has since been viewed millions of times, appears to show Jenkins and others in the hotel in the hours before her disappearance. According to Rosemont spokesman Gary Mack, police have identified most of the people in the video, which shows a woman in glasses, speaking to the camera. In the reflection of her glasses, you can see part of the hotel room, where Jenkins is apparently sitting.
Currently, it is not known how Kenneka died. However, we must avoid jumping to conclusions and blaming the victim i.e. we shouldn’t say things like,”She should’ve been more careful about the people she called her friends.” Nothing is known about what happened to this poor girl yet. But I hope and pray we get some answers soon.
Keep in touch with your preferred news source for continuing updates.
As if people need more proof of why black people have a rocky relationship with police, here comes this gem that will likely be discarded anyway.
The Root reports:
An officer with the Estherwood, La., Police Department came under fire Monday after he shared a racist post on Facebook. After deflecting and attempting to defend the post several times, the officer has reportedly decided to tender his resignation to the department Tuesday night.
KATC first reported on the situation Monday, indicating that it would not identify the officer in question because he had not been charged with any crime, but Twitter user @Freeyourmindkid found the post and shared screenshots of the page belonging to Wayne Welsh, who identified himself as the assistant chief of the Estherwood Police Department.
The offensive post shows a white woman pushing her child’s head underwater in a bathtub with a caption that says, “When your daughters [sic] first crush is a little Negro boy.”

No surprise, Welsh is reported to be a Trump supporter who detests Democrats, Michelle Obama, women in power and just women in general. In my opinion, I bet he’s less sorry for his actions and is more pissed that his “free speech” has been under attack and led to his resignation. Another poster boy in today’s atmosphere of festering hatred.
In a previous entry entitled RANT: Police are killing black folks, and I have the right to be pissed the fuck off!, you said the following:
“Brothawolf, unless you’re willing to take action, being pissed off is useless.
Problem is, too many black men are pissed off, not nearly enough are moved to action….just sayin.”
To which I agreed, and asked what can be done. You replied:
“We can fight back by starting to fight, which we’re not doing.
In order to get true freedom, each of us has to be willing to DIE for it. Black men are not willing to die for freedom. This is exactly why we remain the white man’s boy.”
So, I asked you what have you done in the fight against this and other problems we’re facing. I’ve yet to hear a response. Now, I won’t jump to conclusions. I will assume that you may be too preoccupied to answer. On the other hand, I will also assume that you won’t answer as you probably haven’t fought yourself.
It wasn’t until now (I’m slow. I know.) that I realized you haven’t really answered my first question. You simply replied that we should fight back. Well, how exactly do we fight back, and what’s wrong with the way those who are fighting are fighting? You continued with a call for sacrifice, a willfulness to die for freedom. But honestly, are YOU willing to die for it?
While noble as it sounds, it lacks substance. Precisely, it lacks any hint of a plan, a sufficient plan that would give results and explain risks. Yes, we must fight, but without a thoughtful carried-out initiative, the resistance will likely fall apart before it starts. So, how can black people effectively fight against an oppressive system of racism?
I asked you what have you done to see what should be done that could work? I also wanted to know if you’ve done anything that you’re very passionate about? Have you been fighting? If so, how? And what were the results?
I won’t pass any prejudices. However, I’m still going to be straight up with you. This is a blog I’ve set up six years ago as a way for myself and other people to have a voice. Even though, I’ve said that it’s just a blog and I’m merely a blogger, it still contributes to the expression of marginalized people without any filters. To some, blogging is a way of fighting. It’s a way of voicing your thoughts and opinions. It’s practicing one’s freedom of speech.
If it’s not a reliable means of combating the enemy, I’m open to suggestions. But here’s the other matter. Still, keeping it real, if you’re not doing anything yourself, it may be a good idea not to throw stones at others. If you’re just ranting, you appear to be – like you said – a pissed off black man, but not pissed off to do anything.
If you’re really willing to die for freedom, I commend you. But if you’re not and haven’t done anything nor plan to do anything, please have about a dozen or so seats.
Many of us, if not most of us, are fighting our asses off. We may not be fighting physically, but we sure as hell are fighting mentally and emotionally. We try not to drink the sugary sweet Kool-aid of white supremacy and get sick from internalized racism. We try not to let our emotions run wild in this zoo called America. Our battles are being fought in our hearts and minds, and we’re still standing our ground after being bombarded by whiteness for so long.
Black folks are angry. Some are doing something about it. And some are putting themselves at risk for the sake of change. But many don’t know what the hell to do. One can not assume that we’re just vexed with no action. Some of us want to do something that will tear a hole in racism. Some of us are doing what we can. Some of us are clueless. But mere criticism will get us nowhere. And that’s being real.
It’s been a long road for me as a blogger. I started Brotha Wolf more than six years ago, and have written numerous topics, particularly pertaining to race relations. But I’ve also written on other subjects that are just as important. Still, racism was the main entree.
When it comes to discussing society’s ills on the internet, there will be cosigners as fed up as you are. But you also have to deal with the pestering and sometimes destructive nature of interlopers whose primary purpose is to fuck shit up for amusement. We call them trolls, among other things. My blog was no exception.
To many of these trolls, speaking out against inequalities, let alone fighting against them, are – in one simple word – wrong. While I tried to reason and explain my disagreement, they can’t agree to disagree. Only their opinion matters.
I’m not good with arguments. I admit it. And I’ve learned that dealing with those completely out of touch with reality, you won’t win using actual facts and evidence from legitimate sources. They live in a Bizarro reality where facts are lies and vice versa. So, I had to kick them out before their juvenile and sociopathic behavior made me punch my computer.
Yes, I focus mostly on racism, but I also touched on other issues. I touched on sexism, homophobia and Islamophobia. Though I haven’t written about them as often as racism, they are still important topics that must be discussed. I did learn that there are “people” who believe those problems aren’t major or they try to excuse why people hate and fear certain folks. They seem to think that those emotions are empowering. Only, their arguments only made them appear more screwed up than before.
As I said once before to a former visitor, this is just a blog. I’m just a blogger. I’m not always right. These entries are my thoughts and opinions with a few sprinkles of facts and data. I don’t pretend to be more than what I am. And one day, I will have to move on to other matters. This is not to say I haven’t enjoyed the ride. But this is to let everyone know that one day, I will renounce my bloghood.
I may be more woke than I was six years ago, but I’m still slightly sleepy when it comes to certain subjects. I hope to continue learning and opening my mind so that I can be fully awake.

Like the title says, these are a list of things he did before and after he got elected into office. Here it is the middle of May, and yet, there are people who still think he’s the greatest thing in the world since chocolate.
I can’t wrap my head around how colossal the insanity is behind this reality. I don’t think anyone who accepts reality can comprehend this. Trump supporters seem to live in a reality of their own manifested by willful ignorance and prominent hate.
Honestly, how can these people think electing Trump will make America great again when both he and they harbor so much disdain for so many things, including certain groups of people? And even today, how can they believe he’s a perfect fit for leading this nation? Are Republicans and conservatives hellbent on ruining the nation and the world just to continue having Trump’s back and maintain their power at the cost of people’s lives? Are these people just as bad, more or less, as their president, and they see him as their hero?
Seriously, what the hell is it, and in all sincerity, what the flying fuck is wrong with these people?
It is sorrowful day for many in the Cleveland, Ohio area and perhaps for everyone around the world.
A video surfaced on Easter Sunday of a shooting of an elderly black man (Robert Godwin, Sr.) by a younger black man (Steve W. Stephens) who went missing afterwards and could be anywhere in America at this time armed and dangerous.
The Washington Post writes:
Authorities said Monday that the suspect, identified by police as 37-year-old Steve W. Stephens, is still at large amid a manhunt that began in Ohio and spread to five states before expanding into a national search. By afternoon, authorities were offering up to $50,000 for information leading to his arrest.
“Steve if you’re out there listening, call someone — whether it’s a friend or family member or pastor — give them a call; they’re waiting for you to call them,” Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams pleaded with Stephens at an afternoon news conference.
So what exactly happened and why? The article continues:
Authorities said Stephens pulled up in his Ford Fusion on a road in east Cleveland about 2 p.m. Sunday and then said in the video: “I found somebody I’m about to kill.”
“I’m about to kill this guy right here. He’s an old dude,” Stephens said as he approached Robert Godwin Sr., who was reportedly out looking for aluminum cans to collect.
“Can you do me a favor?” Stephens said to Godwin before asking him to say the name Joy Lane.
“Joy Lane?” Godwin responded.
“Yeah,” Stephens replied. “She’s the reason why this is about to happen to you.”
The video showed him ask Godwin how old he was, raise a gun and pull the trigger. The camera spun around; when the picture came into focus, Godwin was on the ground.
It all lasted less than a minute, and authorities said the two men did not know each other.
So what happened next?
In the video, Stephens claimed to have killed more than a dozen people, police said, although they have not confirmed any other victims. Authorities have issued a warrant on a charge of aggravated murder for Stephens.
In a second video, Stephens is seen on his cellphone, telling someone to go online to watch the footage.
“I can’t talk to you right now. I f—– up, man,” he said.
“I shamed myself,” he added in a video posted by Cleveland.com. “I snapped. Dog, I just snapped, dog. I just snapped. I just killed 13 motherf——, man. That’s what I did — I killed 13 people. And I’m about to keep killing until they catch me, f— it. … I’m working on 14 as we speak.”
Why though? According to Stephens, it was due to a woman named Joy Lane. Plus, he mentioned on his now-deleted Facebook page that he lost everything while gambling and court records show that he faced other financial problems. While he said that he killed over a dozen people, police say that it has not been confirmed. Stephens did demand, however, to speak to two women, including his mother or he might kill again.
On that note, I want to ask that you do not post the video of the murder in the comments. I also don’t want anyone to blame Joy Lane for the actions of this killer.
People everywhere, on social media especially, expressed their condolences to the family and friends of Robert Godwin, Sr. while simultaneously inquiring about the whereabouts of his killer Steve Stephens while condemning his actions. It should go without saying that some of them concerned are black people. But when news broke out about the shooting, conservatives and all-around assholes took no time in questioning and mocking Black Lives Matter.
I guess it’s too much to ask for time to mourn and heal without getting black shamed.
The movement, and to a certain extent the black community, is expected to condemn this and other crime by black people as if black people haven’t done so already. We’re also expected to do something about our criminal problem, also as if we haven’t done anything or haven’t done enough. Lastly, we’re assumed that we don’t care enough about such tragedies, like we get up and celebrate when we’ve harmed or murdered another human being.
To those willing to rub salt into the wound, let me say that black people who are aware of this and other crimes are saddened. We mourn for the friends and families of victims of senseless violence. We have been working hard to deter crime in our neighborhoods while at the same time have been fighting systematic violence against us. We’re not ignorant. We don’t have one-track minds. We’re not morally deprived as to sit back and do nothing. And we have nothing to prove to lowlifes taking more time condemning a movement than expressing their sympathies.
Also, black people killing other black people is no excuse for other people to kill us.
Bottom line. We want this killer found. And we want him to pay as we would anyone else. Whether they’re wearing plain clothes or carrying a badge, we want the violence to end. Period.
UPDATE: The man known as the ‘Facebook Killer’ committed suicide in Erie, Pennsylvania. AP reports:
The man who randomly gunned down a Cleveland retiree and posted video of the crime on Facebook killed himself Tuesday during a police chase in Pennsylvania that began when a McDonald’s drive-thru attendant recognized him.
It marked a violent end to the nearly 48-hour multistate manhunt for Steve Stephens, whose case brought another round of criticism down on Facebook over how responsibly it polices objectionable material posted by users.

xPraetorius, ‘xPrae’ as I call him and the author of the blog Praetorian Writers’ Group, hasn’t given up on debunking my views on racism while flaunting his supposed intellectual prowess and general arrogance. It’s cool that he does. After all, it’s his blog, and he can do whatever he wants with it.
At the same time, I have my blog, and I have authority over it as well. So, when xPrae disagrees, I respected it. However, he trashes your opinions and even refutes actual proof in a manner fitting a Fox News correspondent all while making you feel small and crazy if it disagrees with his text book conservatism. He will turn your words against you and may even attempt to gaslight you. Any attempt to call him on it will be stopped with denial.
So eventually, I had to kick xPrae out of my den. His condescension was practically cyber bullying. I thought I heard the last of him here. But it turns out he may have returned anyway under different aliases.
Over time, I dealt with the likes of patrons named Apollo, Flyonthewall, Viewer, Rational Observer, Deshawn, a host of other people and just recently a troll named Roger. All appeared armed with arguments, criticisms and insults to my articles and the comments left by visitors in a manner similar, more or less, to how xPrae writes.
I heard about this internet tactic of using sock puppets. Individuals would create multiple accounts under different names for just as many purposes, one of them being trolling. So, I researched on how to spot sock puppets. And one of the easiest indicators is to check their IP address, the number designated to a computer or some other device connected to the net. If several people leave comments in your site, and you see them all sharing a set of numbers and decimals (the IP address) underneath their names, that means they’re all using the same computer.
That doesn’t necessarily point to sock puppetry though in every case as some people genuinely use a single computer such as a family using their private PC or numerous people using a public computer. But most of those using sock puppetry do so for nefarious intentions.
As with the case with xPrae, he shares the same exact IP address with Apollo, Flyonthewall, Viewer, and several others who came and went during and after his visits.
In the end, you have to put two and two together. These people all comment within the same perimeters of how xPrae talks. So, either xPrae has a gang all with the same personality, or lack thereof, as he. Or he was all of those people.
I took xPrae to task to admit that he was trolling my blog using his sock puppets after his latest imaginary foot soldier Roger came and taunted me. I went to his blog – yes, I decided to step to him – and I gave him a chance to come clean. He squashed every opportunity as I knew he would, and flatly denied his actions.
It’s next to impossible to take someone seriously who said in his blog, “As objectionable as slavery is, it’s by far the best thing that ever happened to 21st Century Black Americans.” xPrae may be delusional as he parades around as the intellectual superior to us ‘liberals’ who claims he knows black people better than me, a black man, but he’s far from weak. Ignoring him seems futile. He sees me as Q sees Captain Picard (Yes, I’m a Trekkie), as his living toy. Sooner or later, based on his behavior, xPrae will intrude again under another phony identity posing as his own greatest fan.
