Hi again, folks!
This is another quick FYI. As always, I will post here whenever an article in my Eccentric Entries blog is appropriate for Uncommon Comments.
The article in Eccentric Entries concerns the new "Black Lightning" TV show and how it resonates with me. It is not for those who are easily offended or who subscribe to simplistic answers to complex problems. Click this and find out why!
The overall blog is located here. There are many articles to choose from. Visit often!
Once again, I expect to return to this mostly political blog in the near future.
All the best,
This is the scariest, sickest cartoon I've ever seen! It is from some of the evil, warped, sick, twisted, diseased minds in Nazi Germany during WWII. They used warped images of then-popular American cartoon characters (Goofy, Felix the Cat, Popeye the Sailor, Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse) and the worst Jewish stereotype imaginable to demoralize the French and demonize America.
This, people, is how evil sees what others perceive to be innocent cartoon characters. We can't forget what they did. They killed. 6 million plus -- dead. Entire countries left in ruins. Attempted genocide in assembly-line fashion. Sickening. If the Nazis won, then every non-Aryan would be dead today. (By definition, few or none of the Nazi high command were Aryans, but then again, they were too bat-sh*t crazy to notice.)
So, why do I feature this animated short? Because the Nazis of yesteryear are brothers and sisters in thought and deed with the hatemongers of today. The only thing standing between them and widespread hatred are masses of decent people made aware of their sickness.
History. It's more than just past events -- it's a warning for today.

First off, Trayvon Martin did not deserve to die. Eleanor Bumpers did not deserve to die. Amadou Diallo did not deserve to die. Sean Bell did not deserve to die. Patrick Dorismond did not deserve to die. James Byrd, Jr. did not deserve to die. James Craig Anderson did not deserve to die. And there are others, so many others, who absolutely did not deserve to die simply because of the color of their skin. Let us honor them and commit ourselves to raising our collective game by changing the institutions and beliefs responsible for their deaths. The alternative is to surrender to hatred, mindless rage and senseless murder. But again, those are the things that people who give up tend to do, but we, as black people, have a history of not giving up.
Some call it the Florida-Haiti Interstate Tunnel. Some call it the Caribbean International Highway. Some simply refer to it as I95U. No matter what it’s called, it is said to be an enormous undertaking, one of the largest construction projects in existence. It is purportedly a 600 mile-long system of overland highways and floating tunnels moored to the floor of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea meant to link Florida, Cuba, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico in a single roadway system. Those who believe in it call it a wonder of modern engineering. Those who know better call it a magnificent hoax, one that partly depends on confusing it with the nearby and very real Port of Miami Tunnel project.
