IT IS FRANCE: RUSSIA 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP CHAMPION.

IT IS FRANCE: RUSSIA 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP CHAMPION.

ICHEOKU says they did it, deservedly and rightly earned; the boys from Paris. ICHEOKU says congratulations.

KAVANAUGH IS THE ONE: CONGRATULATIONS

KAVANAUGH IS THE ONE: CONGRATULATIONS.

ICHEOKU says he is coming with a clear-eyed view of what the United States of America constitution provides and will not legislate from the bench. ICHEOKU says definitely the right pick, so CONFIRM him now and right away and without any delay or much ado. Congratulation.

DEEP STATE IS REAL.


Lisa Page: “Trump is not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”


Peter Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”


ICHEOKU says if this is not corruption of the worst type, what else so qualifies? So sad the length these guys went to truncate the will of the American people; yet they will turn around and accuse other countries of corruption and you wonder is it only when money exchanges hands that there is corruption. Pitifully SAD.

OBSTRUCTION 101: THE VERDICT.

“The only obstruction President Trump committed was in obstructing Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton from the White House.” - Jesse Watters, Watters World.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: THE PROMISE KEEPER

“The United States no longer makes empty threats. When I make promises, I keep them.” - President Donald John Trump.

ICHEOKU says exactly why he is now fondly nicknamed the Promise Keeper and he keeps his promises, one promise at a time.

NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL IS UNACCEPTABLE.

America will not be held hostage to nuclear blackmail. We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. And we will not allow a regime that chants “Death to America” to gain access to the most deadly weapons on Earth." - President Donald John Trump.


AG JEFF SESSIONS: WHAT DO THEY HAVE ON HIM?

ICHEOKU says what does the Deep State have on AG Jeff Sessions that has purchased his quiet and inaction over the excesses of the Russian Collusion witch hunt? Something definitely does not look right and apparently seems awry that the Attorney General appears so constricted to do anything to bring the never ending "investigation" to a conclusion. How much longer will the American people wait to have the matter concluded and what will it take. As a member of Team MAGA, from the basket of deplorables, who defended him when the president was threatening to fire him, ICHEOKU is not particularly satisfied with the "playing it safe" attitude which Jeff has adopted thus far and urge him to find any possible way to make the investigators finish their job immediately and without any further delay.


TONY ELUMELU: LETS MAKE HIM PRESIDENT.

ICHEOKU says he has all it takes to turn Nigeria around and Make Nigeria Great Again. He is highly cerebral; he is well traveled and is highly exposed internationally; he is a doer with a can-do spirit and attitude which translates to impossible is nothing as it does not exists in his dictionary; he is fully accomplished person who turned around the nearly moribund behemoth UBA and created thousands of jobs both in Nigeria and overseas; and above all, he is youthful and has age on his side and you ask yourself, what else is anyone looking for in a leader for Nigeria that is on bended knees and begging for leadership other than a man with his proven record. If he can do this in the private sector, he can also mission accomplish such in the public sector and resuscitate a Nigeria that is in distress. CHEOKU is emphatic that Tony Elumelu is a highly qualified, fit and proper person to lead Nigeria out of its present woods of near comatose and under performing achievements. Lets go to work Nigerians and make his candidature both viable and achievable. We can do this fellas; so lets urge Tony to run, run Tony run and together lets Make Nigeria Great Again. If Trump can do it, so can Tony.


SYRIA WARNED TO DESIST OR BE BOMBED AGAIN.

"If the Syria regime uses this poisonous gas again on its people, it will be bombed again. The United States of America is locked and loaded. When our president draws a redline, our president enforces the redline." - Nikki Haley, United States of America Ambassador to the United Nations.


VLADIMIR PUTIN: WHENEVER HE IS READY!

VLADIMIR PUTIN: WHENEVER HE IS READY!

ICHEOKU says Russia's Vladimir Putin has one good opportunity to finally move back into the comity of civilized nations and stop his despotic mentality which always sees him flocking amidst his fellow dictators. But if he choses to remain in the cold and remain in Kremlin where he has been holed in since 1999, too bad. His too long stay in power is only damaging Russia but not helping it; and gradually turning Russia into a third world country where only one man dictates what goes on in the country. Putin, change your ways; let true democracy reign in Russia. Salute

JOHN BOLTON: THE NEW NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER.

JOHN BOLTON: THE NEW NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER.

ICHEOKU says you cannot get a more American American and he is a hardcore America First nationalist as they come. President Donald John Trump's pick to succeeded fired National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster is the real deal. He is a hard-nosed American First protagonist, who does not shy away from projecting America's power through strength and who is not afraid to have America go it alone if need be. ICHEOKU says hopefully the president has found the very person who will help him achieve and implement his policy objectives in John Bolton. But as far as MAGA and AF agendas are concerned, Ambassador John Bolton is one heck of a good pick and a right fit for the job. He will help President Donald John Trump with doing his job for the American people. ICHEOKU says congratulations to the Mustachioed One. Let the governance of MAGA now really begin.


A FACEBOOK CENSORED WORLD: LIMITING FREE SPEECH

A FACEBOOK CENSORED WORLD: LIMITING FREE SPEECH

ICHEOKU says they pretend to be guardians of free speech but wants to tele-guide other peoples thinking by limiting what they can freely say; especially if you are a conservative and holds opinions which are favorable of President Donald John Trump and critical of Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton. Unfortunately, they will not succeed but can only force people to opt out of the live wasting exercise of gluing one's eyeballs to the platform. An exercise which does not add anything of value to users, nor pays them anything for helping them bring more eyeballs to the portal. Instead of being grateful that people are helping them bilk advertisers of billions of dollars with their riveted eyeballs, they now want to micromanage everyone's thought as if they are doing one a favor by letting them waste their time using Facebook. ICHEOKU says will not be cowered nor intimidated; they can block ICHEOKU all the heck they want but ICHEOKU will not bow to Facebook's attempt to control ICHEOKU's thoughts and would rather permanently part ways with the Mark Zuckerberg globalist weapon of mass control than kowtow to a group thinking. To hell with this attempt to exact undue control and turn everyone into a herd mind.


THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION: DEALT A FATAL BLOW.


"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is also no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election." - Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General of the United States of America.

ICHEOKU says this determination, for every intent and purpose, now lays to rest the "Collusion with the Russians" hogwash; as nobody can be guilty of an offense which requires awareness to ground when he or she is not aware of it. Collusion is a conspiracy and requires a proactive participation coupled with a guilty knowledge to bring about the purpose of the conspiracy. Therefore, when will the Special Counsel address the nation and tell Americans that there is no there, there, in the Russian Collusion investigation and save America further bleeding both in resources, time and unity. Enough of the sore loser antics of the Democratic Party which does not know how to take a loss and learn to work to fix what went wrong, instead of continuously pointing a finger at a mirage that is the Russian Collusion, in its bid to find something to blame for its ineptitude that led to the epochal loss of November 8th, 2016.

FBI MEMO SCANDAL: OBAMA WAS IN THE LOOP


"POTUS WANTS TO KNOW EVERYTHING WE ARE DOING." - Lisa Page to boyfriend Peter Strzok, two FBI officials.


ICHEOKU says the POTUS then was President Barack Hussein Obama, who had previously denied and lied to the American people that he does not dabble into any FBI's investigative matter. Really?


AMERICA IS HERE TO STAY - PDJT

AMERICA IS HERE TO STAY - PDJT

"Americans fill the world with art and music. They push the bounds of science and discovery. And they forever remind us of what we should never ever forget: The people dreamed this country. The people built this country. And it's the people who are making America great again. As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve. As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will not fail. Our families will thrive. Our people will prosper. And our Nation will forever be safe and strong and proud and mighty and free." - President Donald John Trump.


IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!
ICHEOKU says congratulations to President Donald John Trump for successfully steering America's ship of States for a full year. What the naysayers said will not happen is a reality which they are finding extremely difficult to live with. But their preferences notwithstanding, Make America Great Again is on course and nobody will torpedo it. Once again, congratulations to the leader of Team MAGA on the anniversary of his being sworn in as the 45th POTUS.

ICHEOKU'S MAN OF THE YEAR 2017: PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP

ICHEOKU says following an examination of so many nominated individuals, we have determined that this year 2017's man of the year is President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. He came into office shooting on both hips and as the year draws to an end, his both guns are still firing and smoking. For standing up to the world and starring down American detractors and being the cheerleader and champion in chief of America, the leader of Team Make America Great Again has earned ICHEOKU's man of the year award 2017. Congratulations to President Donald John Trump.

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT
ICHEOKU says a wisdom of Solomon come to judgment; it is about time the child is given to the rightful mother. Salute to the courage of President Donald John Trump.

AMERICA STRONG!

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No one — no dictator, no regime and no nation — should underestimate, ever, American resolve."


RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE FOUND!

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE EMERGES!

ICHEOKU says Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton was caught pants down colluding with the Russians and she has been trying so hard to pull the wool over the eyes of American people over whodunnit. What a lying, contriving, manipulative woman she is, who lies so easily that you wonder whether truth actually exists in her lexicon. Pitiful.

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY HILLARY CLINTON

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY CLINTON

ICHEOKU says finally the circle is about being completed and American people and the world at large will come to know who in fact did the collusion. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Congress paid Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russian dossier which former CIA chief James Clapper said was the basis for the Trump investigation. Yet, the investigation is still ongoing, despite the now established fact that the basis of it was a manufactured phony. But hey, we shall see.


ICHEOKU says still wondering WHAT HAPPENED and the reason 33,000 emails were deleted and bleach washed? Hopefully American people will soon confirm their suspicion that those shouting themselves hoax with Russian Collusion might indeed be the ones who actually colluded with the Russians. So much for the Russian Reset button. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton, simply too crooked.


GLAD TO BE CARRIED TO FULL TERM.

GRATEFUL TO BE CARRIED FULL TERM

ICHEOKU says another lucky one that survived the abortionist's pincers from the over 360,000 unlucky ones that get flushed out each year. May God help us all have a better resolution about unwanted pregnancies.


JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.

JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.
ICHEOKU says from being disrespectful to the flag to being unappreciative of the services of the military to overall being anti America; NFL players must learn to check their political activism outside the stadiums. They must not kneel on our dime. ICHEOKU supports the president 1000% on this and hereby calls on every player to respect the sensibilities of the many differently opined fans who paid to watch a game and not to be made mad by their personal political agenda.

IPOB: NOT A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION - USA


“The United States Government is strongly committed to Nigeria’s unity. Important political and economic issues affecting the Nigerian people, such as the allocation of resources, are worthwhile topics for respectful debate in a democracy. Within the context of unity, we encourage all Nigerians to support a de-escalation of tensions and peaceful resolution of grievances. The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a terrorist organization under US law.” - Russell Brooks, United States of America.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.

North Korea PUT ON NOTICE

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

ICHEOKU says once again the diminutive midget of Pyongyang has been advised to heed the resolution of the United Nations firm stand against his continuing provocations; and that the total wiping out of his North Korea is now an option should he force the hands of the United States of American military. In a statement by the Defense Secretary Jim Maddog Mattis over its latest nuclear test, the secretary said “Our commitment among the allies are ironclad. Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so.” ICHEOKU says does not really know the joker that guy has, but whatever it is will likely very soon be forced out. The world including ICHEOKU is waiting and watching.

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY
ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to go their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES A VERDICT ON ISLAMIST TERRORISTS


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


BBOB: BRING BACK OUR BIAFRA

ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.
#BringBackOurBiafra.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE - STEVE JOBS

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)

“I’m not that interested in material things. As long as I find a good bed that I can sleep in, that’s enough.” - Nicolas Berggruem, the homeless billionaire.

RACISM IN AMERICA, EVEN WILLBORN'S MONEY CANNOT BUY HIM ACCEPTANCE?

In Bridgeport Chicago, a predominantly Irish, German and Lithuanian (white) enclave, in South-side Chicago, which has produced many notable Chicago politicians including the Daley family; racism in America was taken to a new low. It was taken to an entirely different level, which in a way, suffices as the lowest of the lows in examples of some white skinned Americans crass and obtuse intolerance of the black skinned Americans. These hating white racists of Bridgeport Chicago have blatantly proclaimed that it does not matter the status of a nigger; a nigger is always a nigger and will always remain a nigger. A people to be oppressed, discriminated against, put down and aside, not given a fair shake or opportunity in the American society and above all, not deserving of an accommodation or the right to live within their exclusive white neighborhood. These people as always, bundle and lump all black people together and it does not matter to them whether the black people are rich or poor; catholic or protestant; educated or illiterate; handsome or ugly; and above all whether such black people are even better than them, the white people discriminating and hating against the black folks.
An affluent black American, a comedian and co-host of a nationally syndicated radio show - "The Michael Baisden Show; and his equally well to do African-American wife were told by a white couple to take their money, a $1.7 million, which they offered to purchase a residential home in Bridgeport Chicago and stuff it in their you know what? According to the story, comedian and radio host George Willborn and his wife, Peytyn Willborn made an offer to purchase a property listed for sale and which has been on the market for over two years; but they were rejected and turned down by the white sellers, Daniel and Adrienne Sabbia. Continuing, each time the prospective black buyers made an offer for the property, the white sellers summarily raised the asking price, intending to frustrate them out of wanting the property; such that the property went from $1.5 million initial offering to the last bidding offer of $1.799 million which the black couple were still ready and prepared to accept. But to their greatest chagrin, the Sabbias just couldn't stand some black people living in their property or neighborhood and withdrew the property from the market pronto. Icheoku says for turning their back on a $1.7 million just because of the pigmentation of the prospective buyers skin, Mr. Daniel and Adrienne Sabbia are the new faces of racism in America, the poster man and woman of racist white Americans behaving badly.
The story did not just end there for as soon as the Sabbias learnt that the Willborns have found another property and moved on, they put the property back in the market for sale. It also did not matter to the Sabbias that their property has been in the market for more than two years without any serious offer or potential buyer prospecting it, until the Willborns came calling. In Daniel Sabbia's statement of intent regarding the prospective buyer, he said, "I would prefer not to sell the home to an African-American;" which put in another parlance, reads, 'my wife and I would prefer not to and cannot sell our property to a nigger!" Their indictment contains a statement to the effect that "the Sabbias simply refused to sell the home to the Willborns after the making of a bona fide offer because of their race, African-American." Icheoku asks, did the Sabbias think that 'a nigger's money stinks or will stain them black and/or is tainted by their blackness' that they would rather just walk away from it?
Daniel and Peytyn Wilborn by this experience found out the hard way that in America, a blackman always remains a blackman; and that no amount of money is capable of washing off 'blackness.' That running away from the hood to join the white people in their own neighborhood does not make one any more acceptable or wanted by them. That it does not matter the black person's status or achievement in the American society, whether he is on the street corner peddling crack-cocaine or asking for some 'change'; or that he has a $1.7 million dollars disposable money which he is ready to splash on some piece of property; that black person as always, remains a blackman who is to be simply confined within their own special reservations aka 'The Hood.'
To these breed of white folks, black people are yoked down together in the same unending fate of rejection, rejection, and rejection! To these white folks, the color black is simply not what their own 'God of creation' ordered and one of them the late Evangelist Jerry Falwell went a step further when he stated that 'the whiteman's God is different from that of the blackman,' and you wonder what he was smoking when he uttered such an ungodly sermon? For these piece of white humanity, the color black is "unsightly," and cannot be accepted as their equals and not deserving of some dignity; hence must be removed as far away as possible from their own areas of abode, such as Bridgeport Chicago. Put their philosophy in another way, money or no money, 'a nigger is still a nigger' and that is the reality of a nigger's life in America. Icheoku says, such disposition explains the undercurrent of the vitriolic opposition President Barack Obama is getting daily from majority of these conservative white christian Americans, who see in "their" White House, a foreign illegal occupier, from who they vociferously profess their desire to take their government back? But Icheoku does not even know nor can it vouch for the mindset of the Willborns prior to their shocking rude awakening of the suffered rejection; since it is a common knowledge that majority of successful niggers of America think themselves 'whitey' and would rather mix and mingle with them white folks than remain with their roots. But hey, may be another one of such 'Uncle Toms' probably found out the hard way that just because a vulture can also take flight does not make it automatically an eagle?

The 8,000 square foot home under advisement, located at 3300 South Normal Avenue in Bridgeport Chicago was built in 2006; and is of a very unique character, which according to the Willborns, clearly represented their idea of a dream home. Icheoku says there is something sinisterly subliminal with the street name "NORMAL" in context with this story; and queries whether it is possible that the Sabbias did not consider black Willborns, 'normal' enough to live in a street named Normal?
It will be recalled that it was also in Bridgeport Chicago that a few years ago, a black boy was beaten to near pulp and left for the dead by some white boys for 'straying' into their reserved exclusive white territory? The story had it that the boy rode his bicycle to a park in Bridgeport and was mobbed by some 'white's only' enforcers, who felt that the black boy should have known better that blacks are not welcomed in Bridgeport Chicago?
Icheoku asks, is it possible that the uprooted 'Jim Crow South' has finally found some anchor in Bridgeport Chicago that blacks should be specifically marker out and targeted for such racist exclusion and bastardization? It does not even matter to these racist white people that Oprah Winfrey lives in Chicago as well as Reverend Jesse Jackson; or that the United States 44th president, President Barack Obama also calls Chicago home? Further, Icheoku asks, why is Reverend Jesse Jackson not championing a "Desegregate Bridgeport-Chicago" campaign or is there some insider's knowledge which is preventing his crusade or which has forced his hands off race-activism about Bridgeport? What is the scoop here Jesse Jackson and Icheoku will equally like to know when lady Oprah Winfrey will be inviting the Willborns to her 'Oprah Show' to tell their story and share their experience of being rejected because they are black.
The rejection of the Willborns and their whopping $1.7 million by the Sabbias in Bridgeport Chicago shows that the problems of black Americans has everything to do with their stereotypical perception by the White folks; and not necessarily because they are retards, incompetent, lazy, criminally-disposed, uneducated or unintelligent, inarticulate or such other accusatory handicaps and labels such as the 'angry blackman.' This forces one to introspectively question the purport of the remark of then senator and now vice president Joe Biden, about then Senator and now President Barack Obama as being the first "articulate and intelligent black man" ever; and you would have a full grasp on how deep the condescending arrogance of these white people runs regarding black people in and of America. The Sabbia's refusal to sell to black people's incident in Bridgeport-Chicago gives one a real and true insight into the inherent anti-party of some white people to anything not their type, such that the white couple would rather not sell their property which have been in the market for two years to some black people. You are then forced to wonder off in your thought, whether this black couple's dollar bills were 'tainted by their blackness' such that the Sabbias just won't deal with black dollar bills.
Daniel and Adrienne Sabbia's refusal to sell to black people once again put on the spot and showcased the emblematic underbelly of the American society, where the Orwellian separate but equal treatment still thrives; admitted there is a make-believe air of equality and rule of law for all that exists in the land. It is not for black peoples' lack of accomplishment or education or wealth; no, the white people simply just do not care about them. Icheoku once had a soul-searching conversation with a White employer, and asked him why it is that they are always reluctant to employ people who do not look like them as evidenced by the composition of the workforce in most offices? He explained that it is very difficult to empower the opposite people who are not one of your own or who do not look like you; and that their reluctant disposition to gainfully employ them is as a result of a prevalent tendency of not employing people who you do not care about? Quoting him, he said, "you only employ people you care about." Icheoku was perplexed but learnt the true lesson of America's workplace politics of race, which explains the difficulty of black and colored people landing good paying jobs with benefits; and where over 69.9 percent of all lucrative and very high paying white-collar jobs are always filled by light skinned white people. The rejection of a blackman's $1.7 million in Bridgeport Chicago further brought home the true purport and message of the music of legendary super-star and king of pop, the late Micheal Jackson, who despite being as successful, greatly accomplished and wealthy as he was, still suffered the backlash of being black in America; such was his 'black-skinned syndrome of America' that he was forced to chemically alter his pigmentation just to appear 'whitey?' But unknown to MJ, the white people already knows who he was - that little wide-nosed black boy singing 'ABC' with his other Negro brothers. His case was sealed the moment they thought he was trying to fool them with what color his skin was and it became one upper-cut after another until they 'killed' him.
Their anti-party to blackness forced Michael Jackson out of his mind into a near state of 'weirdo-istic' lunacy, wherein he never recovered but remained until he died of drug over-dose, a recluse hermit. He craved for acceptance, but they won't indulge him; he sought power but they fought him off, coveting his rights to a magazine of all Beetles songs as well as his Peter Pan's Neverland ranch. MJ was forced to write and sing so many songs throwing light on the disparity of skin-colors in America particularly the disparaging treatment of the black-skinned Americans by some white Americans in America; including such hit songs as "Black or White, History, etc where he refrained that "they really do not care about us!" That was the late legend paroding his being black experience and rejection in the American society of supposed equality for all? And now enters the Willborns' discriminatory treatment, a case where $1.7 million was not good enough to buy some black people a right of abode in a Bridgeport white enclave of Chicago? A property initially placed on the market for $1.5 and because of their blackness, the asking price was repeatedly and arbitrarily raised each time they make an offer until it reached $1.7 million. But when their determination to match the last asking price and purchase the property became incontrovertibly very obvious, the property was yanked off the market as no longer available, only for it to be put back two months after they had moved on. Then you ask yourself, what is really going on in our God's own country, America, if a couple cannot be allowed to purchase a home which they can rightfully afford, simply because it is in a neighborhood where blacks are not welcomed and yet a blackman is the president?
