I have been around too many good folk who have been hurt on the job, in organizations, in the church and etc. It happens because the issue never get address and we say pray about it and have faith.
Let’s get this straight. I am not a preacher, I am not a minister and I am not holier than thou. I am just a sinner saved by grace and I sin every day but I ask the Good Master to forgive me. I ask him to send folk to me that feel I have wronged them, offended them or whatever so I can attempt to get it right. I can’t get it right if I am not confronted.
We sit back and allow folk to be mistreated, attempted to be discredited and just simply hurt and we know they don’t deserve it but we say nothing. So if you witness this and say nothing, then you are no better than those who hurt folk. I refuse to allow folk to such and if I witness it any kind of way be it in person, or in writing, I am going to address it because I will not be held accountable when I am suppose to be my brother and sister’s keeper.
The older I get I can’t take a lot of mess.
I have asked and will ask again, if you have a problem with what I say and do then delete me because although I ain’t perfect, I will address folk and ask them to hold me accountable when they see me doing something that they feel need to be addressing. Come to me, send it to me but whatever address me.
When we hold each other accountable for our actions then the better off we will be. We sometimes error and not intentionally simply because we are not perfect. But I will say that in my comings and goings I try to address folk nicely but when they attempt to try to discredit me or make it all about me when it is not, then you may not like my response.
Don’t put me in a box! I am the box!
I ain’t there yet!
Don’t Blame Me!

The Watch Dog response: And folk don’t get it that we are not truly free. Kaepernick Protest is validating where black folk stand in these USofA. I am so glad that I ain’t ignant to what is going on around me. It just bothers me that some of my black folk are so damn religious that they don’t speak out on anything but ignant mess on Social Media while folk like Kaepernick and others are fighting for equality for all. But these folk that ain’t saying a damn thing benefit on backs of those who sacrifice for them. I bet Kaepernick want to just say the hell with this but I bet again that he says, it ain’t about me and them, but it is about him the creator. Thank you Kaepernick and others who are sacrificing for the future.
A Denver car dealership announced that it will “evaluate” Denver Broncos star Von Miller to decide whether it wants to continue its endorsement deal with the All-Pro linebacker. Last year, Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall lost two endorsement deals when he decided to join Colin Kaepernick in protesting during the national anthem.
CenturyLink terminated its agreement with Marshall in a statement that said in part:
While we acknowledge Brandon’s right, we also believe that whatever issues we face, we also occasionally must stand together to show our allegiance to our common bond as a nation. In our view, the national anthem is one of those moments. For this reason, while we wish Brandon the best this season, we are politely terminating our agreement with him.
These corporations completely ignored the statement these players were trying to make and instead bent to the sentiment largely held by white people that the protests are unpatriotic.
That last sentence is not conjecture. An October 2016 Quinnipiac poll, the only extensive national poll on the subject, found that 74 percent of African Americans agreed with “not standing during the national anthem in order to protest police violence in the black community,” while 63 percent of white respondents disagreed.
