I Don't Know God


[image error]

I really don't know God. What makes a book fire? I mean, what kind of book sparks flames in the mind? I feel like I'm on the edge of such...But I don't know. I won't know until I release it, I suppose.

I've been on and off this current project like a hot lover that always makes it hard to quit. And it wasn't easy starting and stopping TNT. There was just life in my face pulling me a... Read more of this blog post »

Rufus O. See Dr. Rufus O. Jimerson’s “Battle Royal: How Society Encourages Brain Trauma, Underdevelopment, Self-Hatred, and Reinforces Stereotypes on Black Americans” at Amazon.com by Friday, February 22, 2019. The paperback explains how society encourages black-on-black violence for enormous wealth, largely to entertain the white audience in the stands and media. The combat embedded in the National Football League (NFL) as an example has been the source of significant brain damage from concussions. For multimillion dollar salaries these athletes for a short career on average lasting 3.3 years, according to the NFL Players Association. In exchange, they make enormous sacrifices to their neural-muscular-skeletal systems and longevity. In too many cases, intellectual development is put on hold for perceived riches drawn from this marginal career fin professional football. Most of these player incur numerous concussions from high school and college years when their brains are more vulnerable. Unfortunately, many fail to make the rosters of the NFL for the opportunity to cash-in on their athletic abilities. Those that make it to the NFL are left with further degrees of brain damage and many have become addicted to prescription painkillers or illegal purchases on the street by dealers.

Rufus O. Check-out and purchase Dr. Rufus O. Jimerson’s “The Black Roots of Modern Civilization” in paperback at Amazon.com or at Kindle.com for i-phone and digital tablet users. The purpose of this book is to uncover the truth about how blacks who now populate Sub-Sahara Africa and in America and Europe have shaped modern civilization before the Christian Era and Western (Aryan) hegemony. For more than 10,000 years, Black Africans held hegemony over the continent they and mankind originated, Europe, Asia, Americas, and Pacific Islands. Humanity, its religions, languages, and civilizations emerged from the Land of the Blacks along the Nile River from the interior of Africa. Human intellect and achievement was spawned and spread with Africa’s migrants throughout the globe. The people of the Sun once ruled all humanity. The book details how our descendants “Out of Africa” seeded civilization. In doing so, they cultivated the seven wonders of the world starting with the Sphinx and Pyramids of Gaza in Kemet or Early Egypt. These Ancients that built these megaliths were the first teachers of modern civilization and drew scholars from all parts of the globe, including Aryan Greeks who stole credit for the accomplishments of these Africans. These Ancient Africans seeded philosophy, medical science, architecture, physics, metallurgy, astronomy, history, civics, archeology, abstract art, martial arts and art of warfare, much at levels that are comparable today and some that exceed our times.

Rufus O. Order Dr. Rufus O. Jimerson’s “Whites Are an Endangered Species: Living in a Post-Truth Racial Reality” from Amazon.com by 10/28 for paperbacks or Kindle.com by 10/1, for i-phone and digital tablet users. This book explores the conspiracy theory that whites are endangered species as held and promoted by President Trump, sycophants in his base, including Neo-Nazis, Klan members and white nationalists in the United States and across the globe. President Trump, the Divider-in-Chief, is described as deconstructing inclusive democratic values and replacing them with white supremacist conspiracy viewpoints and policies. His bromance with tyrants, fascists, and depots worldwide is highlighted. The impact upon nonwhites in terms of self-destructive or suicidal behavior is perused. Most of which are victims of self-hate in white supremacy societies that are hostile to the “others.”

Rufus O. Go to Amazon.com or Kindle.com for i-phone, laptop, blackberry, and other digital tablet readers to order “Ouch! You Knew I Was a Snake:” Many Indiscretions of Donald J. Trump. The purpose of this book is to examine and analyze the many indiscretions, conflicts of interest, and abuses of power, that Trump’s presidency inflicts on our “rule of law,” morality, civility, and the public interest. The book spotlights how instincts that Trump relies on which are comparable to lower species driven by id for power, greed, etc., have deconstructed our norms, traditions, and rights under President Trump and his Republican sycophants. It reveals the president’s sociopathology driven by mental instability, xenophobia, racism, and misogyny. Yet, like-minded supporters who profess to be Christians ordained Trump as their Savior. This book is a wakeup call for readers to reflect on voting and pressing for “checks and balances” on his presidency and why he must be reeled in before he unravels our 200 years plus democracy.
