Wingspan Portfolio Advisors - A snapshot in Corporate Corruption, Abuse, and Racism

UPDATE:  Wingspan CEO  Steve Horne has been OUSTED after the company failed to make even its FIRST payment on a reported $18.8 million dollar loan. Housing Wire also reports that Steve Horne attempted to regain control of the company and he failed at this measure too. Apparently investors grew nervous about the missed loan payment and other 'questionable' decisions Steven Horne made as Wingspan CEO, including devoting Wingspan's philanthropic resources to the singing career of a family member. It is stated Steve Horne mixed personal expenses with business expenses. 

One notable quote from the Housing Wire article announcing Steven Horne's ouster was this:

“It appears Wingspan does not care for their employees, families nor the community as they also did not inform Brevard County workforce of the layoffs,” one former Wingspan employee at the Melbourne location told HousingWire.

The former employee, who wished to remain anonymous, also told HousingWire that Wingspan created a hostile work environment in Melbourne, which caused clients to abandon the extension of their contracts, leading to the layoffs

Well, well.. It's not news to me that Wingspan took its way of doing business down to Florida and was rebuffed. From my experience, these guys have always done business in a nasty, ruthless manner. Look at the reviews many of their Florida employees have given them. They do business in a "Texas" Fashion which is no holds barred, fuck everyone, profit over people type of fashion and Florida simply wasn't having that shit. They started to lose contracts left and right.

Executives Justin Belter, Melanie Pellegrino, Jason Dickard, and several others (including Director Kevin Conn) all left right before Steven Horne was ousted. They all left around the same time. Suddenly. Out the Blue. Now that sounds like these guys were PUSHED OUT but who knows. That's a strange way to leave all of a sudden. Especially around the same time. From what I heard the bankers wanted entirely new leadership so they most likely were forced out.

Can Anyone say "POETIC JUSTICE" and Can I Get An "AMEN"!

Looks like Justin Belter, Jason Dickard and another Wingspan Executive named Cesar Hernandez have hurriedly started another company called Agility 360 in Carrollton, TX with a fancy website and they are putting out 'press releases' notifying the public they have hired 'each other'  The website is so new it hasn't even been rated by my security software. After reading all of the fancy wording about what this company does I pretty much gather it does a whole lot of nothing. 

According to the Agility 360 Website the company --> "resolves and prevents operational challenges for banks, lenders, insurers and investors resulting from economic fluctuations, regulatory demands, and industry re-positioning. Our unique engagement model increases operational adaptability while reducing financial, operational and compliance risk or exposure.

And again I don't know about you but that sounds like they are doing a whole lot of 'nothing'. Pretty much sitting pretty in jobs where they try to give 'advice' about something they know 'nothing about'. Maybe the flashy website and over the top language will work for them. The poor bastards just might make a good go of it. They are going after big banks after all, and white folks with money aren't known for being the smartest tools in the shed. Some are quite stupid in fact. Just look at how many have been fooled out of large sums of money by Nigerian hustlers. So the large corporations just may send a lot of business their way. They probably won't care that these so-called 'experts' started this company after damn near driving their last company into financial ruin.

"They've taken off their robes, and now they sit in corner offices in business suits;
however they still think THE SAME"
"For they WILL be evil people. For plain human people, both power and money can corrupt. For corporate "people" with no innate sense of fairness and no instilled morality, the corruption is a certainty."

Be careful about the employment you take. Especially in Texas. A state known for Oil, Cowboys, Start-ups and Crooks.

A bad employer can do more than hurt you emotionally, financially, or cripple any other career prospects. A truly bad employer can make you withdraw from the Job Market entirely. The experience one gains from working with a ruthless and cutthroat employer can leave one permanently scarred.

I speak from experience. More people should speak from experience. I had over several years of work experience when during a period of unemployment after a layoff, I heard about a small company in Carrollton, TX which was hiring for Bank of America as a third party vendor. That small company was Wingspan Portfolio Advisors, located at 4100 Midway, Suite 1110, Carrollton, TX 75007. After interviewing for a position with the company, I was hired on the spot.

The first few weeks working at Wingspan felt ok. The work was not too difficult and the management told us constantly we could become permanent with hard work. So we worked hard. All of us. However, in a short time, I began to notice what I felt were very unethical business practices by the company. I was instructed to lie on more than one occasion when speaking to Bank of America customers regarding loan documents. Management was non supportive and were at times outright racist against the African American employees. I, along with others, started to notice many white employees being hired permanent whereas the black employees were not even though their work was of high quality. Management also became openly hostile to black employees as well.

I left the company feeling disillusioned with Corporate America.

The last few days I worked at the company and I saw the warped mentality and lack of ethics of managers who treated the blacks with such contempt and back-handedness; and it became so depressing I didn't know if I could ever work for another company again.

I had a realization that Corporate America is the white man's domain. It is his world. We only play in it. For the first time in my life, I understand the importance of African Americans to become entrepreneurs in higher numbers than we are currently. We will never be treated as complete equals working for white people in traditional corporate America. No matter our work ethics, values, education or experience we will always be pushed to the second tier. I became resentful of corporate America and to this day liken Corporate America to crooks and crony capitalism.

It took months of health issues from the stress from the job, dealing with the racist comments such as when one of the managers referred to the black employees as "roaches" openly and to one male employee in particular as "nigger". When you experience that you will never get over it. It will mold your perception of white people, especially Southern Rednecks in positions of power, forever.

That is why I wrote this blog. Don't let white people no-matter what titles "THEY" give "THEMSELVES" take your dignity. Stand up for your dignity. At the end of the day, they may take your job, but don't let them take your dignity.

If You Want Career Advancement, Don't Work For Wingspan Portfolio Advisors

Unless you're not a minority.

Only a favored few can advance at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors. I witnessed this when I would see people, overwhelmingly whites, with no education or experience, advance quickly ahead of minorities who had both the education and mortgage experience. No one really would say anything out of fear of losing their jobs. Justin Belter and Melanie Pellegrino had all power in determining who would move ahead to that next promotion.

I can remember applying with many of my highly qualified minority coworkers for position openings that would become available. One day after clearly being very impressed with my qualifications, the HR Director at the time (Wingspan has gone through several) went specifically to Mr. Belter's office to get his "permission" to promote me. I had never seen anything like that. Isn't HR suppose to make those decisions going off of qualifications? Why didn't the HR Director at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors see something wrong in white males, who consistently had far less qualifications than black employees for the positions they were being awarded, say something? Because he would have been terminated. Good Ol'boys are called Good Ol'boys because they are expected to go along with the program. They benefit as well as everyone in their clique. At the end of the day the HR director of a small, micromanaged company like Wingspan, where the managers are 99% white males, southern born and bred, wanted to keep his job as well. So he simply "followed orders" and overlooked the qualifications of so many hardworking minority candidates who he knew never had even the remotest chance of moving up at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors.

33 year old "Senior VP" Justin Belter
at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors

 I also can't understand why anyone would send the intimate pictures of himself with his spouse smoking "guda" and drinking and getting SLOBBERED back to their boss, the EVP Jason Dickard? I have never seen anyone so close to their boss where they would post this kind of a picture to be seen not just by the EVP Jason Dickard but by ALL STAFF..

Photo Removed as my dignity will not allow me to show the poor woman in such a drunken state.





Way To Keep "It Classy",  Mr. Senior VP..
Why Put Your Wife Out There Like That?

We Could Have Done Without Seeing Your "Gut" dude.. Geez.
Wingspan Sure has high standards in promotions.. 
Is There a Labor Shortage of VP's?

Now who all wants to bet that if a black employee, ANY BLACK EMPLOYEE, at Wingspan would have sent pics of himself and his wife getting wasted like this to our managers, the VP's, that we would have automatically been rewarded not just with one promotion, but two all the way up to a SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT. Damn Near Overnight.

And who all wants to bet that if a black male, had managed to knock up his wife their would have damn near been a public company broadcast to cheer the guy on? Nah.. It wouldn't have happened. While "WE" were busy trying to keep our damn jobs, the white males of Wingspan were living the LIFE. While "WE" were being threatened, harassed and Terminated over any minor issue, The white males were clearly not held to the same standards. There was a serious double standard. 

This is where white privilege comes into play. In Corporate America, white corporate leaders look at younger white male employees as "Sons". There is an race based "affinity" there and because of this they are quicker to excuse errors, character flaws and lapses in judgment and open doors of economic advancement that would not be opened to fellow black employees. Black employees are simply viewed as "employees". The procedural aspect as it pertains to write ups, terminations, evaluations, etc. are mostly for "black employees". The white boys get "babied". They get away with much more. Far more than black employees would ever hope to get away with simply because of their white skin. 98% of Corporate Leaders in this country are WHITE MALES. They simply want people who look them sitting beside them in positions of power at the decision table. For wrong or right, this puts white males at an automatic advantage in corporate America. The "Affinity Advantage". Where everyone in leadership looks mostly like them. And desires them to share their positions of power with.
There are numerous studies on the internet and off which reinforce what I am saying. The power structure in this country has always been exclusively white and male. This creates a tremendous advantage for those starting off who are white and male. They are quickly trusted to handle greater responsibility than those who classify as minorities. Simply because they "Resemble" the existing power structure. That's why you can have scenarios where black employees are told if they leave work without permission they will be terminated, whereas white employees can leave work without permission and not face termination. The rules apply to both. However, they are only enforced with black employees.
For all of the purported "racial progress" we have supposedly made in this country, all one has to do is take one look at the board rooms and corporate leadership across this nation and they will realize America still has a long way to go. These positions are still overwhelmingly filled with WHITE MALES. I'm tired of being offered lower pay and lesser responsibility because I am a black minority than white males with the same and often fewer qualifications than I. Like Malcolm X said they say "go to school and get a degree" and when you get the degree they say "you're over-qualified". And without the degree they say "you're under-qualified". It's like you're damned if you do and damned if you don't if you're not a white male. Justin Belter started off with no experience, had average work quality and in a few years time was made Senior VP. From the pictures posted you can see how he spent a lot of his time. This is WHITE PRIVILEGE. Edward Snowden, the NSA Leaker and high school dropout, who managed to score a job making $122,000 a year with only his GED has NOTHING on this man when it comes to WHITE PRIVILEGE.

During my employment at Wingspan, the white males would literally walk in off the street, get hired (sometimes without even valid ID's), hung over from the night before, bitch all day about how inept management was, leave without permission early which for blacks would be terminable offenses, and HR, Justin Belter, Melanie Pellegrino and Jason Dickard would consistently take these guys and try to groom them for management. These same guys who honestly could have cared less about the job. That was the mindset of Wingspan Portfolio Advisors.

I would observe my white male coworkers not only bitch and moan about management, but become openly hostile with management and they would be coddled. I would observe the quality of their work and see how many people would have to work to correct their work, and yet they kept their jobs and had promotions ready for them if they wanted them.

I would see white employees who had trouble doing the job go under training one, two, and up to three times until they would be transferred to an easier position or have a position created for them. These opportunities were never afforded equally to black employees.

The Human Resources clerk at the time was a black male and he had access to the pay scale of all employees. He stated he became so disgusted at the enormous pay disparity he resigned. He said he simply couldn't work at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors anymore making less than white guys who had less experience and who had just started to work there.This is what many employees did. They just quit. The few who dared to complain had their days numbered. They would quietly be dismissed.

There was not just a little double standard at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors. There was an enormous double standard at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors. This was whispered about in circles by the black employees. We could see what was happening. However, many of us simply wanted to keep our jobs and Wingspan was the type of company that if you complained of racism, they would find a way to terminate you. For any reason. Justin Belter did this to other employees. He watched one black female until she came to work late one minute and he walked over and terminated her employment. On the spot. She had been a good worker. But she had taken exception to the way Melanie Pellegrino had yelled at her and she was tired of the verbal abuse. This was all it took to remove her. This showed the rest of us that we were not expected to have any dignity while working at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors.

These guys were extremely dirty. Very underhanded and cut throat and racist. They held racist biases against blacks, were uncomfortable working with blacks, and were suddenly, thanks to Wingspan Portfolio Advisors, in powerful positions where they managed black employees and where they could act out on their biases and prejudices and wield undue influence in the lives of their black employees. There was a LOT of verbal abuse. Racist jokes. With blacks being referred to once by Melanie Pellegrino as "roaches" and of course Justin Belter calling a black male coworker a "Nigger" forcing the guy to storm out the building.

Yet these guys were promoted. They were white males in Texas and of course they could do no wrong. No one can tell me that there is not a double standard in Texas. Blacks are at the bottom of the Totem Pole when it comes to Promotions, Hiring, Pay, etc. I know that there are good companies out there, however, I do strongly believe that what I experienced while working at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors is reflective of the work experience of many minorities, especially black minorities, who work in the state of Texas. I initially thought that Dallas would have been different. If this is as "good as it gets" in Texas, then I might as well get the hell out because I can't imagine being someplace where the racism is any worse.

I was wrong to believe that the lone one or two black faces in management, that you will find at any company in Texas or otherwise, meant that the company was inclusive of blacks. This is often not the case and these "lone rangers" who have been selected to grace the offices of management at these companies are usually just "Tokens". Tokens to be propped up before a court to show that the company can't possibly be racist. In Wingspan's case there was Kevin Conn. Yet Wingspan was very racist and unbelievably it was usually Kevin Conn they went to and ordered to perform very questionable terminations and other employment related matters when it came to the black employees. This earned Kevin Conn the reputation of a "Snake" in black circles.

I never did get comfortable working under Justin Belter, Melanie Pellegrino or Jason Dickard, because these guys would look at me and other black workers like a deer looks at Headlights. They were clearly uncomfortable working with black people. I now believe, looking back, that they had honestly never really been around blacks. They seemed very uncomfortable and would stand at a distance and stare at us.

I would often see Jason Dickard as well, walking the floor, with a scowl on his face, looking side to side, from black employee to black employee. This too made me very uncomfortable. But I labored on. The black employees of Wingspan Portfolio Advisors, I can honestly say, put forth five times the work as white employees, who were largely nonchalant and laid back. They would play. They would joke with each other. They would come to work out of dress code all the time. And we would later hear that they had been promoted. There would be no fan fare. Just whispers.

The racism at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors was "insidious". It was deeply rooted. Sometimes overt. Very subtle. The constant promotions of the lesser qualified white candidates would be whispered about. This was done on purpose. The company knew what it was doing. This hurt a lot of black employees deeply. Probably more deeply than the pay disparity which was also taking place at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors. I can honestly say that on this one, HR was complicit in the racism because every white employee that started at Wingspan Portfolio Advisors, many of them right out of college, working alongside black employees who also held college degrees and had years of mortgage experience as well, started off at a much higher pay rate than what we were earning.

These white employees were open about their salaries. They must have thought we all were making what they were. They were naive. Or maybe they weren't and they simply didn't care about the company being sued because of the pay disparity.

The problem with the HR Director going directly to Mr. Justin Belter, who was in his mid 20's at the time, far younger than many others he "managed" who also happened to have far more experience than he did in "everything" pretty much was that Mr. Belter was friends with several of the white males and he was uncomfortable with blacks. Justin Belter also had a reputation for being openly hostile to black employees, even referring to one black male as a "Nigger" forcing the guy to explode and quit on the spot. This resulted in many of the individuals getting promoted, as stated above, having less qualifications than blacks. Some of these people could barely speak a coherent sentence.

At Wingspan Portfolio Advisors my white coworkers were consistently moved ahead of me, and not just me, but many other minorities with relative ease. The position I had applied for with several other highly qualified black candidates went to a white G.E.D. recipient who had a criminal background, absolutely no mortgage experience and who "enunciated" like she was educated in the back of a Barn; and to boot she had an absolutely awful attitude. She was argumentative with everyone and nasty with everyone. Go Figure.. She won out for the promotion over several minority candidates who had more qualifications than her in every category one could imagine.

This is what we experienced working as black employees for Wingspan Portfolio Advisors. SHEER RACISM. 

I take it that very small, redneckish companies work far different than the much larger established ones where one's merit, experience and education holds more weight.

After Being Allowed to Play God with the Career Advancements of many of his higher (than himself) qualified minority subordinates, this guy jet sets off to a beach in Mexico.. When the vast majority of minorities working for Wingspan were without vacation time, sick time, health insurance and where we were constantly threatened if we missed "One Day" of work we would be terminated. Yet this guy starts with all the rest of us and because he is one of the "FEW" white guys working at Wingspan at the time, he is essentially quickly promoted to be an Overseer of all the rest of us who were even more highly qualified than he was..


If you are one of the JP Morgan Folks out of Florida, Welcome to the Texas Way of Doing Business.
Wingspan Portfolio Advisors is again, a "very" small company where the management team are all related and very insulated from policies, rules and procedures other team members down the chain have to follow.

For the HR director to essentially overlook my qualifications, so that my lesser (than myself) qualified manager could pick and choose which "favorites" would get promoted showed that you cannot expect fairness at this company.

No matter the lies they consistently give in those meetings they have every 15 minutes which are often about nothing, where they often repeat what they said in the meeting 15 minutes prior; don't believe a word of it. These guys can't be trusted to do what's right. It's just a bunch of classless rednecks parading around as cultured and educated individuals and this couldn't be farthest from the truth.

My Racist Company Fires Minorities. What Can I Do About It?

by CBSNews

Dear Evil HR Lady, I work for a small family business where HR functions are handled by accounting and the department manager. I manage a very small workforce that contributes a great deal to the bottom line. I have recently conducted interviews for a position that is soon to be available. The problem is that the best candidate is a minority, and the owners of the business are racist. They are not overtly racist, they just put the microscope on every minority I hire, especially minority women. My direct supervisor is not a member of the family, but everyone else above me is. I feel that I would not be helping this candidate to hire her since I can guarantee that I will be asked to terminate her before her probationary period ends for "unsatisfactory performance." If I do not hire because my higher ups are racist, then am I guilty of discrimination? I have decided to hire the most qualified person, who is a minority, but I can count the calender days until I am instructed to terminate. What do I do?

Well, this is a sticky situation, isn't it? If the economy were humming along at full speed, I'd tell you to forget about these losers you work for and find a new job. Employers who don't treat their employees fairly soon end up without any good employees, because the good ones leave. That will happen to these people eventually, but in a bad economy, it's easier to keep people who normally wouldn't put up with you. However, I would start looking for a new job anyway because this isn't a place you want to be associated with.

But for the here and now, you need to take control of the situation. Your department contributes to the bottom line. That means other people are dependent upon your work for their paychecks. That gives you some leverage. Let's use it.

First, you need to have clear, objective, quantitative measures for success. This is a critical point. It needs to be established, in writing, what is expected of the new hire. Personally, I'm a fan of SMART objectives. These are objectives that are:

S--Specific M--Measurable A--Achievable R--Relevant T--Time Frame

Once you've written these up, get them approved by your boss and (to be safe) your boss's boss, who is part of the racist family. You need to have their approvals in writing, so that when the time comes you can effectively defend your new hire. Be careful with the SMART objectives: Make sure they're what you want to live and die by, because you'll have to do just that.

With the SMART job objectives in hand, go ahead and make an offer to your best candidate. Go over the details with her and explain that in the past many people have been terminated during the probationary period. Explain that these objectives are new, that they are designed to make sure everyone is on the same page, but again, that other people have been terminated during the probationary period. (And not that you asked, but I really dislike probationary periods. Having a probationary period says, "There will become a time in which you are no longer an at-will employee," but we'll deal with that some time in the distant future.)

To be fair to the candidate, you need to let her know that there is a possibility she'll be terminated. This is especially important if she's leaving another job. Explain that this is not going to be an easy job and that the family sometimes has a hard time accepting outsiders.

Then bring the candidate on board and work with her to make sure she meets the SMART objectives. If the powers that be want to fire her, you'll have solid evidence in your little hand that she has met all of the objectives. When they say, "But it's the probationary period, we can fire anyone at any time," you can say, "Yes, that's true, but this function is critical for the bottom line of the company. If I terminate someone who is clearly meeting the objectives we all agreed on, it's going to look like racial or gender discrimination. If she sues, we'll most likely lose, because how would we defend ourselves? Terminating her would be a poor business move, since she is meeting all the objectives."

Using the "we" form instead of "you" will help soften the blow that you're telling these people they're racist idiots. In fact, they probably won't pick up on it. All you're saying is that it "looks" like discrimination. If they still insist that she be terminated, this is where you need to draw your line in the sand. You need to refuse to terminate the person.

If the family wants to terminate, fine. But, don't you dare be the one who delivers the news. Why? Because often a defense in discrimination lawsuits is that the company can't possibly be racist/sexist/ageist/whateverist because the same person who hired did the firing. The argument is that if there were a problem with illegal discrimination, the person never would have been hired in the first place. Don't give them the opportunity to hide behind you.

I realize that this opens you up for termination. This stinks. But remember, you're a strong contributor to the bottom line. Remind them of that. Stand firm. Don't give in to the temptation to do something wrong to preserve yourself. Sometimes, you've just got to do what's right. News Link

April 2nd and 3rd.. STILL the TOP STORY on channel 29, and 58 today April 3rd!

Sheriff's busted into my private home at approx 6 am on Tuesday March 30, 2010. They banged on the door and yelled "Open up... Kern County Sheriff" etc.. for about 4-5 minutes.. I was alone and they were looking for Joe, the man they beat up on the roadside a few months ago in Bakersfield, California. (see video "Joe Police Brutality on my channel" They said they had a warrant but when I demanded to see it, they then retracted their statement and said "We don't NEED a warrant!!" They threatened to arrest me.. and tried to ORDER ME in my private home to "{back off" of them. See for yourself if I backed off... I do not follow orders of color of law nazi military agents.. they have NO AUTHORITY and NO JURISDICTION. They unlawfully entered and terrorized me. Then they went to my friend Alan's dad's house where he was and approached him with guns at his head and threatened to "RIG" a drug test on him to frame him for something. They also said they would kill Joe if they find him. They refused to identify themselves and when I asked one if he was a robot.. he replied "YES"!


U.S. CONSTITUTION Amendment 4. Search and Seizure. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. We have forgotten that this was drafted to correct the evils of swarms of the King's officers barging in, and arbitrarily confiscating seditious material, which was determined by them to be seditious, without benefit of a judge or a public trial. Today, we see the same set of circumstances ñ invasion and terrorism because somebody else invaded our privacy and did a bench trial because they determined that our lifestyle was seditious.

People v. Camacho, 23 Cal.4th 824; 98 Cal.Rptr.2d 232; 3 P.3d 878 (2000): Police observation from non-public area constitutes unlawful search. The County is liable for Fourth Amendment violations, and has no immunity when its employees trespass upon areas that ìmembers of the public cannot be said to have been implicitly invited. No such implicit public invitation exists in a side yard, back yard, or neighborís yard for county employees or anybody else to conduct invasion of privacy and/or pretextual search without probable cause to inventory livestock or other property by peeking over or through fences, even chain-link fences, which are there to exclude the eyes of strangers and trespassers.

U.S. v. Hotal, 143 F.3d 1223 (9th Cir. 1998). To comply with Fourth Amendment, anticipatory search warrant must either on its face or on the face of the accompanying affidavit clearly, expressly, and narrowly specify the triggering event Consent to search that is given after illegal entry is tainted and invalid under the Fourth Amendment. Plain-view doctrine did not apply to seizure of evidence from defendants residence after officers conducted initial search based on invalid anticipatory search warrant Plain-view doctrine does not apply unless the initial entry is lawful pursuant to a valid warrant The county is liable for its agents/employees stealing anything without probable cause on a tainted warrant that fails to narrowly list things with particularity that are connected with a crime, and that fails to have an attached affidavit from a victim injured in his or her business or property. State and federal law protects the unalienable right to own property / livestock, so the county is liable for its employees fabricated charges and pretextual search without probable cause.

Eagles Cornerback Brandon Boykin Suggests Coach Chip Kelly Traded Him Because of "Racism". I Believe Him.

Eagles  Cornerback Brandon Boykin says he
was traded by Chip Kelly due to racism.
I believe Eagles Cornerback Brandon Boykin was traded because of racism. Here's why.

As a black person I have often felt the urgency to try and make myself 'acceptable' in personality and culture to the whites I have had to work around. To make sure they had a high level of comfort with me. This has at times proven to be difficult, especially when I've been around white people who have come from backgrounds where they have not had a lot of interaction with blacks. They don't like the feeling of 'nervousness' and when they believe that a 'connection' isn't being made, they are quick to use their power and authority to remove the person from their circle. I believe this has been the case with Brandon Boykin. White people will never 'conform to others'. Others must always 'conform to them'. This is because they are in the positions of power and control. It's their way or the highway.

Now Don't get it confused. Some black people seem to be ambivalent to the history of our two people in this country. They may not have had certain 'experiences' that make them uncomfortable around white people. Other blacks have been subjected to very racist experiences in their lives, such as myself, and we have a little bit of a harder time warming up to white people. We can remain professional around them, but a 'chilliness' remains that is felt by both sides. I believe this was the case with Brandon Boykin.

Eagles Coach Looks like a Big  Redneck
Devil. I can believe he has trouble relating
to blacks. He looks like a Pure DEVIL to me.
I have read comments from other Eagles football players, especially the minority players and this scenario, that I've just described, seems to be beyond their understanding. Some spoke of the fact that they had no issues with Eagles Coach Chip Kelly and they mentioned the numbers of other minority players on the team. They don't understand how complex relationships can be and that there could very well, as I believe is the case with Brandon Boykin and Chip Kelly, be a racial component.

Brandon Boykin mentioned that he felt  he was traded because of a 'racial component'. He FELT THIS. I too have often felt when I wasn't accepted as the "right king of black person" in the presence of whites. Also, I was a little peeved because it seems all too often that blacks are too quick to defend powerful whites, especially when their paychecks are on the line. The other Eagles Players were 'cooning'. They were 'brown-nosing'. In other words, it seems one or two of them was trying to use this situation to throw Brandon Boykin's intuition and feelings "under the bus" to 'curry favor' with the Coach. I find that despicable but I've seen it so many times before in my own life. Because of the power of the white man, other races in his presence often quickly start to cannibalize their own. To turn against their own. It's always been that way.

White men have always had a poisonous effect on other races. Because they wield so much power. Out of fear, others start to cannibalize their own, in hopes they will curry favor with him. I've seen this especially within Corporate America. People being afraid. Always on the edge of their seats. Wondering what will the mighty 'white man' do next. Who will he keep on his team. He toys with this. It inflates his ego. The fact that he wields so much control over  the thought processes and behavior of others.

Brandon Boykin mentioned the Eagles Coach Chip Kelly "Wanted to Control Everything". In a way that's what a coach is suppose to do but not in the sense he meant. I knew what he meant. White men want to DOMINATE every single relationship and every single situation. If something doesn't 'feel right by them' they are quick to slash people, things, etc. from their circles. They are brutal and barbaric, methodical, by nature. It's kind of complex and honestly I lack the words to describe what I feel, what I've seen and what I've experienced. Let me try again... White men want to feel COMFORTABLE with EVERYONE IN THEIR CIRCLE. If they don't have a high level of comfort, even if there is a little chilliness, your professionalism won't mean a damn thing to them. They will SLASH YOU. And this is what happened to Brandon Boykin. He has a lot to learn about life. About race relations and about how white power works. I believe he was a great player.  He should have made the team. But the 'chilliness' between him and the coach was apparently too much for Eagles Coach Chip Kelly. And Brandon Boykin was SLASHED.

America's Fascination With A Donald Trump Presidency

I'm an urban black male and I find myself enamored with Donald Trump. Frankly, I like his ''frankness' I like the fact he can speak so openly and easily on controversial issues. Issues that other politicians shy away from. I like the fact that he speaks his mind and I believe he will follow his heart. That is important to me. Do I believe Donald Trump may be a little bit bigoted? Yes. Of course. I'm aware he has made racial comments before. So why, I'm sure you may ask yourself, would I vote for a man such as Donald Trump. I feel encouraged when I hear him talk about his business prowess and how he's handled deals with China and other countries. I like his 'deal making' abilities. I also like the fact that the man is so independently wealthy, he will not be 'beholden' to special interests for his campaigns financing. He can independently finance his own campaign. So in other words, he is afforded the opportunity, unlike other politicians, to 'be his own man'. I am reminded of the prank call between a "Koch brother imposter' and Presidential Candidate, and Governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker. Scott Walker became what we call in urban America, a BITCH, on the phone. He became Koch's bitch. I really don't know what else to call it. I know that language is not pleasant but I can't get that phone call out of my head. There were parts of the call where he was explaining his rationale and his decisions to the Koch brother in a very subservient manner. I know if elected President he would take his orders from the Kochs as well as other powerful industry leaders and that doesn't sit well with me.

Donald Trump doesn't seem to be anyone's "bitch"; and frankly the other republican candidates appear to be 'bitches'. In other words - they appear to be 'whores to private and powerful business interests'. They don't appear to be their own men. They will take their marching orders from others and not the American people. Trump seems to be the type of guy who will stand up to big business interests. At least I certainly hope he will. Donald Trump seems to be his own man and this is appealing to the American people. We need someone who will act on their conscious and not their concern for their personal campaign financing goals.

I am also enthused by a Trump Presidency because Donald Trump has built a powerful and successful business and he seems to be a great job creator. America needs jobs. Good paying jobs. So many people I know are having such a hard time making ends meet. I recently came across a study that said wages have remained flat for the past 33 years or something similar. So while the price of goods, services and living expenses have risen every single year, American paychecks have remained the same. The value of the dollar is declining and more and more people are finding themselves struggling. Donald Trump mentioned that he would remove incentives for corporations to ship their jobs overseas, and he referred specifically to Ford Motor Company choosing to build its plant in Mexico and not Tennessee as an example. This caught my attention. We need a president who will work to stop American corporations from being rewarded for shipping American jobs overseas. We can't compete with third world wages and still maintain our standard of living in this country. Something will have to give. To try and keep their standard of living, many Americans are being forced into deeper and deeper debt from having to take out 'credit' and 'loans' just to buy the necessities. This isn't right.

We need a stand up guy in the White House. Donald Trump just might be that guy. Let's just hope he doesn't put his foot in his mouth too much to eliminate himself from the running. He need better advisers that's for sure.

Jay Z Tidal Rap's Hidden Message Slamming White Supremacy

Dr. Boyce Watkins Slams The most racist hip-hop song in America - "The Coco"

The Video promotes drug use, and drug selling (illegal activity) amongst young black men. It's the last thing we need right now as black people. Dr. Boyce Watkins is right. The video has millions of views. This is PSYCHOLOGICAL GENOCIDE. A plantation mentality where even during the colonial days, when racist whites want to take over a territory they always hire 'black overseers' (with a white man in the background calling the shots) to help pull off black oppression and black genocide. The record label is owned by 'Busta Rhymes'.

As a community, our economic power is tremendous, so it makes no sense that many of us are trained to keep begging whites for opportunities.

BIGOTRY 'TEXAS' STYLE - Black Workers Targets of Racist Behavior at Texas Sara Lee Plant: EEOC (Video)


Federal authorities have determined that black workers at a North Texas food plant were exposed to dangerous work conditions and subjected to racial discrimination and a hostile work environment.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in a letter last month found the former workers at the Sara Lee plant in Paris were exposed to asbestos, black mold and other toxins. They also were targets of racial slurs and racial graffiti.

"I witnessed, myself personally, racial discrimination... from seeing the graffiti on the restroom stalls, saying 'go back to Africa you n-word' from me being called a 'boy' when it was time to go to break, 'it's your time to go to break boy' instead of calling me my name," said former Sara Lee employee Damien Franklin.

The workers have since filed a lawsuit pending in federal court.

Franklin's father worked at the plant. His brother, who also worked at the plant, says the issues started when Sara Lee took over plant operations.

"I was there for 15 years," said Derek Franklin who worked for Earth Grains before Sara Lee. "When Sara Lee took over in 2003, everything changed, management changed, the whole atmosphere changed and it made it a hostile work environment for everybody."

Sara Lee ended its Paris operations in 2011 and the company was absorbed by Hillshire Brands, which in turn was bought last year by Tyson Foods.

BLACK DON'T CRACK: Harvard, Olay Study Finds Black Women Age 10 Years SLOWER than White Women

Say it ain't so? I would've said by 20 years at least...
White women look old very quickly. 
Early 30's most appear to be pushing 40.

Harvard Univesity / Olay Study finds Black Women
 Age 10 Years SLOWER than White Women
We all have that auntie who is 45 but look like she’s 32. Or a grandma well into her 70s who looks 50. Now we have the scientific reason why, and it has everything to do with our genes. Olay teamed up with Harvard Medical School Dermatology professor Dr Alexa Kimball to study the skin aging process over the course of women’s lifetimes, from the 20s to the 70s.

The MDE study, which was initiated in 2012, marries genotypic and phenotypic science and examines women in nearly every decade of life – from their 20s to their 70s – and across ethnicities – Caucasian, African, Hispanic and Asian.

And the study conclusively found that black women do, indeed, age at a much slower rate. Any black person could have told them that, but the interesting thing is that it doesn’t just have to do with the melanin in our skin. It goes deeper than that.

In Olay’s Multi-Decade and Ethnicity Study we have found that women of African-American background aged slower than women of Caucasian background as far as skin appearance was concerned. In fact, the aging process seemed to be slowed down by about 10 years. We believe this is not just due to the higher melanin content in their skin which serves as natural UV protection—although it certainly plays a role. We are now studying the exact molecular pathways in dark and light skin more closely to determine what drives this apparently slower skin aging process…

We have definitely seen that women of African-American background aged comparatively slower [that Caucasian women]. The study also revealed twice as many exceptional skin agers in this group—women who looked more than 10 years younger than their real age—than in the Caucasian study group...

Republicans Pass Bill Allowing Auto Lenders, Insurers To Openly Discriminate Against Racial Minorities, Gays

Republicans Make It Easier To Discriminate
Against Racial Minorities, Gays
The prospect of computer hackers taking control of your car is only the latest of the undue risks of car ownership.

There are also undue financial risks.

Prominent among them is predatory and discriminatory auto lending, specifically abusive interest rate markups targeted on racial minorities.

On Wednesday, the House Financial Services Committee passed a bill that, if enacted, would roll back efforts by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to stop predation and discrimination in car loans. The bill would nullify auto-loan guidelines issued by the bureau in 2013 that spelled out lenders’ obligations and liability under federal lending law. It would also require the bureau to go through a cumbersome process whenever it issued future auto-lending guidelines for nonbank auto lenders — including finance companies that are owned by carmakers — which make up a huge part of the auto-loan market.

Republican-dominated House committees routinely pass awful bills that please their corporate constituents but go nowhere. The committee vote on this bill, however, was 47 to 10, with 13 Democrats joining all of the Republican members in voting yes. Overall, the bill has 124 co-sponsors, including 55 Democrats. The level of support reflects the power of auto dealers, who are often among the most prominent businesspeople in any given congressional district and who do not want scrutiny of their lending practices.

The bill’s supporters say it would make needed changes to regulatory procedures. What it really would do is condone overcharging and discrimination in auto lending.

Another risk drivers face is being charged more for car insurance because they are not married, despite the flimsiness of the alleged connection between marriage and safe driving.

Research issued this week by the Consumer Federation of America compared the premiums charged by six major insurers in 10 cities by marital status – single, single with child, separated, divorced, widowed, domestic partner and married. Some findings:

Only State Farm did not vary its rates based on marital status.

Among the others — Farmers, Geico, Liberty, Nationwide and Progressive — rates were almost always higher for unmarried drivers than for married ones. Among those five, however, only Geico was found to charge different prices depending on whether an unmarried driver had never been married, was separated or divorced.

In several cities, Geico and Progressive charged domestic partners more than married drivers....

"I used to wonder why there aren't laws requiring lenders to spell out their terms in simple English. Now I understand. Our economy - according to Congress - depends on companies being able to mislead people into paying more they need to, whether for a car, house, insurance, etc. 

People worry about the "nanny" state doing too much to protect people. What they really should worry about is the government protecting predatory businesses - at our expense."

Apartheid America : Legalized Discrimination through Mass Incarceration

In 2015, it is socially unacceptable to say, "I hate black people." The public crucifixions of social giants such as Donald Sterling, Paula Dean and most recently, Hulk Hogan prove this to be true.

It is O.K., on the other hand, to say "I hate criminals." As a matter of fact, we are encouraged to do so. As a society we are taught to scold, ostracize and dehumanize those shackled by our criminal justice system. We as a nation are taught to hate criminals. This is seen through the denial of ones child to play with the kid of a felon, or the public shame of speaking about a family member who has been captured by jailers,.

Today, sadly, the terms "black" and "criminal" have become synonymous. Two terms that can be used almost interchangeably when discussing individuals who are denied the rights of human decency.

Whether intentional or not, the American criminal justice system has been used to create a new racial caste system, a phrase used to describe a stigmatized racial group locked into an inferior position by law and custom.,,,

Racist Chicago Cop Punches Pregnant Black Woman In The Stomach For Laughing At Him

Black People will continue to be disrespected by ALL because we are not unified. We are WEAK because we fail to stand together. The black man has abandoned the family. The black woman is vulnerable. Racist whites can have their way with us without recourse. 
It's time to fight back. 

It's time to DEMAND they RESPECT US.
 But we can't unless we first RESPECT OURSELVES.

New U.S. Study Shows Black Students Get JAIL, While White Students Get TREATMENT For the Same Behavior

Overwhelming evidence of continued racial disparities between blacks and whites within the United States of America. When will black people learn that this is not our country. It was never meant to be. No matter how much "Amerikkka" pretends it is. Discrimination and racial prejudice is infused all throughout our system of governance. It is infused all throughout our financial markets, housing and employment and medical institutions. America has come a long way, but these studies show we still have a very long way to go. The older I get, the less I am 'enamored' by the American flag and the history of this nation, though valiant as it seem on the surface, It's been traumatic and oppressive to   people of color. Especially to black people. 

I honestly can't say that I love this nation. Because I don't. I look with great suspicion on everything this nation does. Because of how my people are continuing to be treated. When will it end?

New study Shows Black Students Get JAIL While
White Students Get Treatment _ For the SAME CONDUCT

When black and white kids act up or display troubling behavior at schools, teachers and administrators often address it with differing responses split along racial lines, new research shows. 

Black students are more likely to be punished with suspensions, expulsions or referrals to law enforcement, a phenomenon that helps funnel kids into the criminal justice system. Meanwhile, white kids are more likely to be pushed into special education services or receive medical and psychological treatment for their perceived misbehaviors, according to a study released last week in the journal Sociology of Education.

Overall, this pattern often leads to the criminalization of young black students and the medicalization of white students. 

The study, conducted by Pennsylvania State University assistant professor of sociology and criminology David Ramey, analyzed the rates of suspensions, expulsions and police referrals at 59,000 schools across the country. He also looked at how many students in these schools were enrolled in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, two programs designed to help kids in need of special services.

Ramey found that schools with larger populations of black students also had higher rates of suspensions, while schools with more white students had a greater number of kids in programs designed for students with special needs.

Breaking News: Ken Paxon, Texas Attorney General, INDICTED ON MULTIPLE FELONY CHARGES

Ken Paxon, Texas Attorney General,
CROOKED TEXAS --- Ken Paxon, Texas Attorney General, has been indicted on multiple felony charges out of Collin County which are to be revealed on Monday. Apparently, this guy was a scoundrel. How "fitting" that he was Attorney General of Texas. Texas courts have long been known to be filled with corruption and bias towards the poor and minorities. Texas Courts are highly biased in favor of the rich and well connected as indeed "all courts are". Most of the Texas Judges are backed by private corporations. In other words, they are Kangaroo Courts. It's time to stop pretending they are just. I'm surprised this indictment even happened. This guy must have made enemies in high places. That's the only time the powerful get taken down. When they make enemies with the wrong people. People who are equally blood thirsty and clever and wealthy. Who can fight them 'toe to toe' on their own turf.-----

The Charges are to be revealed in a press conference scheduled for Monday.

 "Special prosecutors in the Paxton case told News 8 they planned to present a third-degree charge of failing to register with the state securities board as the law requires. They also said they planned to present a first degree felony charge against Paxton accusing him of securities fraud. All indications are that charge is related to Servergy, a McKinney-based company that’s been under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Paxton does not have to resign or step down from statewide office as he prepares to face a criminal trial. He can continue to work just as Gov. Perry did after his two felony indictments in August 2014. Paxton's case, legal experts predict, will go to trial since his law license and statewide office are now on the line. He was sworn in as Texas’ top law enforcer on Jan. 1.

The indictments relate to alleged conduct that occurred while he was serving in the state legislature. Special prosecutor Kent Schaffer first revealed to News 8 last month that the Texas Rangers had uncovered new evidence."

Vile White American Racism... Why Is Facebook Censoring This Video?

When did Gary Busey start wearing a bikini?

She's mad because black children splashed water on her while they were playing. They were probably simply trying to save what they thought was a beached whale. 

The woman has been identified as Chicago-area independent writer and sports blogger Angelle Marie “Puff” Massion. She was arrested in 2006 for screaming racial slurs at College students in Chicago, and resisting arrest during the incident. It is reported it took three police to restrain her.

BBQ'ing while BLACK. White Councilman Tells Black Family They Are Not Allowed To Bar-B-Que on Own Property

Apparently this family had a white neighbor move in a few years ago and everytime they barbeque she complains, calls the police and fire department and bitches because she can see the smoke.

However when the white neighbors barbeque she says NOTHING. So finally a white city councilman comes out to tell the only black family on the street they no longer have the right to grill outdoors.
