Shawn Jousts A Wall Street White Knight

Okay, I said I wouldn’t do any more roast blogs. (Trying to be kinder and gentler here for my readers’ sake.) But sometimes I get a comment so ridiculous I have no choice other than to take the ol’ barbecue out of the garage and roast up a Sucka like I did with the Australian SIMP I put on the Barbie last year. If anything, there’s a teachable moment here for guys about SIMPS here in this recent response to the 2012 Why Black women will be single for the rest of their lives blog. His comments in bold, my responses in plain text.

I love black women.

I’m sure you do. This is why you put on your sterling silver armor and got on a White horse to defend them Lancelot.

But then I'm just a white guy. A highly educated white guy - two degrees - and a great job,

He’s a White guy. Big Whoop. And he’s ejumukated. Double Big Whoop. Someone feels intimidated by me and what I’ve written.

$100K question here: How does him being White and ejumukated relate to him loving Black women? Sounds like he’s overcompensating to me. What does your two degrees and your job have to do with your love of Black women?

This is one of the MAJOR mistakes Simps make with women regardless of race on their first interaction with them. Bragging about their accomplishments to anyone without assessing what the woman brings to the table in terms of values or character. This kind of information dumping gives predatory women like gold diggers leverage and allows them to play a hand that allows them to WIN EVERY TIME when they get involved with them.

I'm a stockbroker, which requires brains and a practical bent.
More overcompensation. Again, what does dude’s profession have to do with his love of Black women? Sounds like he’s a little insecure about his dick size.

You do known Writing requires brains too. And being practical. Don’t know what a practical bent is but it sure sounds like the only thing getting bent is Dudes’ two-inch erect penis from the emotional responses he’s written here. Yeah, someone is VERY insecure about their dick size.

 And if black women were like you say they are I wouldn't have been happily married to one for the past six years.

Bravo! *APPLAUSE* Bravo!

You hung in there longer than most of us brothers have with some of these dysfunctional Black women. But year seven is coming up. And that’s usually when some of these dysfunctional sistas start showing their hairy asses to men like you. And that’s when you start heading for the EXIT.

But I’ll be nice and say maybe you got lucky. But many Black women are like the way I say they are. Complete mental and emotional wrecks so FUBAR most men of anyrace just keep walking in the opposite direction when they see them.


I've dated black and white women - they are all individuals to me.

Yeah, they’re individuals to me. Individuals I avoid. Life is so much easier without a dysfunctional female in it giving me grief. Putting myself first allows me to focus on my goals and what I want to do in life.

 Some were a pain, some were a pleasure.

Er…No. Many Black women are a pain. Right in the ass. And if they were so much of a pleasure why are you writing to me to defend them instead of spending time with the one you got? Doesn’t seem like Olivia Pope’s pussy couldn’t be that good could it Fitz?

And I'm not trying to pull online by saying this. I don't need to.

Of course you’re not trying to pull something online by saying this. (Damn, for an ejumukated with two degrees and a six-figure job, your English is absolutely atrocious. Read a fucking book on sixth grade grammar before you post a comment next time.)

But I know what game you’re running. The old White Knight routine. You think by coming in here on your white horse to defend the honor of these dysfunctional Black damsels in distress, and it’ll get you some brownie points with them.

But then I'm not a racist, Shawn.

Er…Not following your logic here. Black people can’t be racist against other Black people. How can someone be racist against their own race?

 Whereas your post could be summed up as a proud declaration of hate.

Good Gravy. What I wrote is a declaration of hate. Just because I present a difference of opinion than that of the White liberal status quo regarding Black women doesn’t mean it’s hate. What I presented was a constructive critique of Black females in that blog, nothing more, nothing less.

 I'm sure Adolf Hitler made similarly sweeping generalisations about black people and jewish people.


Shawn disagrees with my opinion! So I’ll compare his views to someone evil like Adolf Hitler to show everyone how WRONG his position is!

No, I don’t think so. If you read Mein Kampf and you read this blog you’ll clearly see the difference. I’m not blaming Black women for everything that went wrong in the Black community like Herr Hitler did with Jews, nor am I calling for their extermination of all black women like Hitler did with Jews. I’m just presenting constructive critique of this dysfunctional Afro-American female. But thanks for bringing your scarecrow out of storage.

Not sure why you think that narrowing it down to black women makes your viewpoint significantly different.

Er…What makes it significantly different is that I’m presenting a constructive critique of the dysfunctional Black woman’s behaviors and attitudes so she can take a long hard look at herself and make the changes that’ll move her life forward. When 70% of Black women are single, it’s clear they’re doing something WRONG. Most Black women never come to understand that It’s the woman’s job to show a man what makes her attractive in terms of values and character so he’ll see her as valuable enough to forsake all others and offer her an engagement ring. The woman is the helpmeet and she’s supposed to see how she fits into the man’s program.

Unfortunately as long as there are SIMP enablers like you in the picture making excuses for her, this Black female will never have the incentive to do that self-examination and see where she’s going wrong in her life.

All it means is that you're racist and sexist rather than purely racist.

Wow. Just Wow.

Now I’m a racist and a sexist. Just for presenting an opinion you don’t like hearing about your Black queen. Damn, Olivia Pope must be putting the pussy on you like no tomorrow.

Seriously, dude, your Mangina is showing.

I wonder who wears the tampons in your happily married home YOU or your wife. I guess you douche your girlhole once a month too after wifey buttfucks you with a strap-on.

What an achievement.

No, your response is an achievement. An achievement in foolhardiness. You do know this blog is over three years old. And here you are getting pissy about it like a female.

Dude, I moved on from this blog three years ago. Right now I’m taking time out of my summer book promotion campaign just to deal with you and your pissy little tirade so men out there can learn a lesson on how you Simps operate.

No one's buying the - "I'm only saying it for their own good" crap.

Looks like you bought it. You took the time to write an extremely emotional response to a three-year old blog most people have passed by.

They/their does not exist - each black woman who reads your article is not going to appreciate being reduced to an eye rolling, cussing generalisation.

More delicious Irony. Says I’m making a genaralization about Black women, but he himself makes a generalization about Black women!
I love how dude knows exactly what every Black woman who read this blog is thinking. Classic White Knight behavior!

With this use of shaming tactics I really have to wonder if this guy uses tampons and heavy flow maxi-pads once a month. The charge of generalization? That’s something a FEMALE does when she’s trying to shame a man into silence for calling her on her bullshit.

So, you've met black women with attitude.

Yeah, I have. Quite a few. More than I’d like to mention. It’d actually make my day to meet some nice friendly sistas. But with the way many are being raised in these dysfunctional homes…I’m not holding my breath.

 You've met black men and white men with attitude too.

Sure have. And I just met a White boy with attitude just now…You, Mr. Wall Street White Knight. 

 I know I have.

It doesn't make me generalise for the sake of it.

Damn. The spelling! The spelling! I have less education than dude and I can spell words better than he can!

Who’s generalizing? I merely presented an opinion regarding Black women based on my experiences and observations. That’s what people do in things like blogs. Present their opinions based on their observations and experiences.

Get back to us on why 65% of black men are single. I'm sure your viewpoint will be very compelling.

Deflections, deflections. Why are 65% of Black men single:

Let’s see…White liberals like Lyndon Johnson disproportionately drafting Black men to fight the Vietnam War where our best and brightest men were killed off in those jungles. And while those Brothers were fighting that war White feminists took the opportunity to established a gender divide in the Black community back here in America,

Unaware Black women took the side of White Feminists who conned them into believing a pack of lies such as convincing these sistas they were women first and Black second, and telling them they “didn’t need a man”, (Even though God says he made women for Men),

White liberals such as yourself creating a welfare state which told Black women that the Black men who were the fathers of their children couldn’t be in the home in order to receive benefits,

White Liberal HR managers in the 1970s manipulating Affirmative Action and Equal opportunity laws to hire Black women so they could “kill two birds with one stone”, creating the first generation of “Skrong independent Black women”. Effectively this unwritten policy undermined Black men’s positions of head of household within their families and their positions as authority figures in their own communities,

And creating a borderline fascist child support system that punishes men for simply trying to have relationships with their children. Further undermining men’s positions as heads of households and authority figures in their own communities.

All of theses policies created by liberal White men like yourself have kept 70% of Black women single, 65% of Black men single, and lead to 75% of Black children being born out of wedlock.

Of course these are all points I present in my eBook Why 70% of Black Women Are Single. With research to back all of them up with.

I won't be sharing your posts with my wife though because I care about women in a way you could never understand.

No, this pussy beggar won’t be sharing my posts with his wife because he’s too chicken to present her with an opinion that’s different from hers. It’s clear who wears the panties in the family and that’s Mr. Wall Street Stockbroker with two degrees and NO BALLS. This guy lacks the nutsack or the backbone to even present his wife with a simple webpage presenting a difference of opinion to her. Now that’s what I call WHIPPED.

When he says cares about women in a way I could never understand I know dude is completely FUBAR. That statement is CLASSIC Mangina speak. Manginas always profess to be so understanding of women, but in most cases are the guys who will go out and do the worst things to women when they get crossed by one.

Manginas like this always believe they know more about women than women know about themselves, and profess to be so much more understanding of them than “regular” men. But what most women don’t know is that these White Knights often have a Black heart. Underneath that sterling silver armor of these heroes is a man simmering in RAGE. This is why wifey better watch out; this kind of guy is a closet misogynist and all it takes is for her to say something he doesn’t like for him to start calling her out of your name and using profanities regarding her that would make a sailor blush. He may even get violent.

If you want to avoid being made a fool of like this chump pick up a copy of Stop Simpin-Why men don’t need Finance to get Romance Second Edition. In this eBook you’ll learn what NOT to do in the dating scene so you won’t get PLAYED like this idiot.

And if you want to learn more about the tricks of chumps like this pick up a copy of Manginas-They Look Like Men But Act Like Ladies. Every behavior presented by this Wall Street White Knight is featured in the pages of that eBook.  

Now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta go clean the charcoals out of the Char-Broil, wash it out with a hose and put it back in storage.

Isis: Imitation of Life

The next story in the Isis series will be a Fantasy Flashback tale set in 1937. I’ve wanted to write an Isis story set during the golden age of comics with her 1930s supporting cast members Alma Travis and Edna Flowers in their primes. But after reading several golden age stories and seeing how hokey they were I decided make this one a tale about race and identity.

Isis: Imitation of Life will be one of the darkest tales in the Isis series. It’s a story about the goddess at one of the major crossroads in her life.

In Isis: Imitation of Life I’ll be tackling the light-skin/dark-skin issue and the intra-racism between Black people. The title is inspired by the 1934 classic film Imitation of Life about Peola, a light skinned Black woman who makes numerous moral and ethical compromises to pass for White and what she believes will be a better life.

The story itself in contrast will be about Isis pondering if she should remain in America and if she should continue in her second crusade to help Negro people. The goddess wonders if it’s ethically and morally right for her as a New Heliopolitan to interfere in the affairs of the Negro. The question she asks herself is: Is she the one living an imitation of Negro life and if she’s mocking Negro people by living and working among them to help them get a better life.

In the first Isis book, Isis said that when she immigrated to America the people with skin her color and hair her texture were Negoes. In this story readers will learn that her racial identity with the Negro race goes further than skin deep.

I was inspired to write Isis: Imitation of Life after receiving comments from family and some Pro-Blacks about the images of Isis on the covers of Isis: Wrath of the Cybergoddess and Isis: Night of the Vampires not being Black or being too so-called light-skinned. In the wake of all those comments I wanted to make a defining statement about Isis’ views on race and her racial identity.

The reason for setting the story in the Golden Age of Heroes was to make a commentary about superheroes and race. In the late 1930s when Jewish creators were creating White superheroes like Superman, Batman and Captain America to save people in their brightly colored fantasy worlds, Black people were going through one of the darkest periods in American history. Lynchings of Black people were at record highs, and Black people lived in fear due to the terrorism they faced with the Klan and Jim Crow laws in the south and racism and discrimination in the north. While Superman and Batman and Captain America faced brightly colored menaces out to take over the world, Isis faced the darkest of evils: the intra-racism and self-hatred Negroes had regarding themselves due to their perceptions of self. Negative Perceptions of the Negro image perpetuated by Jim Crow policies and racist media like that shown in books, Radio shows like Amos N’ Andy and movies like Imitation of Life.

In most media of the time, the image of the Negro was often caricaturized and presented to perpetuate racist stereotypes like the coon, the brute, the sapphire, and the Tragic Mulatto. In most of these stories from this era like those published in the Pulps and the paperbacks the Negro was always a villain and they always met a tragic end.

And in Golden Age comics Black characters were always relegated to minstrel roles like Whitewash from the Young Allies or the Whizzer’s Negro sidekick. In one Shazam! Comic Billy Batson even put on Blackface to disguise himself. As for Black women in comics, we never saw a single one in that era.

With this Isis story I wanted to tell a story about how the goddess was a heroine during this dark period. The obstacles she overcomes aren’t some villain’s master plan to take over the world, but the perceived prejudices of Negro people and her own internal struggles with race and identity.

For too long so-called dark-skinned people have believed the lie that light-skinned and biracial Black people have some sort of privilege in American society. Some Negroes even believe that they’re better than other Black people. When this isn’t the case at all. Black will always be Black no matter if your skintone is charcoal or chalk White, and light-skinned and biracial people experience racism and prejudice just like dark-skinned Black people do.

Moreover, what defines a person as Black isn’t just skintone. What defines a person as Black is their actions and their deeds. It is the content of a person’s character that defines their Blackness, not the color of their skin. A light-skinned or biracial person who makes efforts to help advance the race behind the scenes is more a support to Black people than a dark-skinned Black person who claims Pro-Blackness but still sleeps with a White woman and panders to White liberals.

I’m really excited for this project because I get to explore a couple of concepts I really enjoy in a story: Pulp Fiction and Golden Age superheroes. I’ve been a fan of Vintage Pulps like Doc Savage and underrated Golden Age heroines like Harvey’s Black Cat and Fox’s Phantom Lady. The chance to tell a story using those kinds of elements has me eager to put fingers to the keyboard to tell this story. 

I’m also excited to tell a story where I get to present a different perspective on Black history to readers. Oftentimes when writers tell stories about the Jim Crow period it’s usually about some racist White southerners tormenting poor downtrodden Negroes. I wanted to break away from that usual narrative to detail the intra-racial issues working class Negro men and women faced and how these perceptions of self are used to divide and conquer the race. Isis: Imitation of Life is set in a Oneonta County, a fictional Negro and Iroquois town in Upstate new York with a main street filled with mostly Black-owned businesses and a working class community of Negro people. The stories of those middle-class Negro people like Pullman Porters and Negro professionals are rarely ever told by writers and I thought I’d tackle them.

I’ve just started writing the first draft of Isis: Imitation of Life, and I’m waiting for my Imitation of Life DVD to come in the mail. So I don’t have a release date for it yet. But with it being one of my summer projects, I’m shooting for a January 2016 release or a June 2016 release. I might do a Kickstarter to raise money to pay for the cover, but everything is up in the air until I finish the initial draft.

Tyrelle Shaw, Dylan Roof, Eliot Rodger- When Simpin Gets Violent

Over the last few years men have been committing murders and assaults all because they couldn’t get laid or get a woman paying attention to them.

A year ago Eliot Rodger went on a shooting rampage where he murdered people because he couldn’t get sex out of his dream woman.

In that same year in Long Island a teenage boy murdered a girl just because she wouldn’t go to the prom with him.

It’s also rumored that Charleston Church massacre killer Dylan Storm Roof murdered those nine people because a White woman he was interested in was involved with a Black man.

And recently here in New York Tyrelle Shaw went around asking random Asian women for their phone numbers. And when these freaked out females wouldn’t give him the time of day he assaulted them by hitting them with a weapon. Many required stitches to their faces from the attacks.

All of these cases are clear examples of Simps taking things to extremes because the girl of their dreams wouldn’t pay attention to them. And because these guys couldn’t control their emotions they had violent tempertantrums where they attacked innocent people.

What most people don’t understand are that most Simps are like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Yes, most Simps are friendly and pleasant when they’re getting their attention from a woman they like, but they also dark side. And when they can’t get the girl of their dreams to be part of their fantasies they can make everyone’s life a waking nightmare.

One of the big problems a Simp has is that they tend to fixate on one type of woman and chase that ideal.  Some even obsess over them. In the case of Eliot Rodger and Tyrelle Shaw they fixated on a tall blonde White Women and Asian women. And because they wanted an ideal of a type of woman presented to them from Madison Avenue advertisers and Hollywood movie studios and even porn, they got tunnel vision. That tunnel vision prevented them from seeing anything but that ideal woman they fantasized about.

Regardless of whether or not that was the right woman for them. In both of the cases of Rodger and Shaw, the women they were pursuing were clearly out of their league. And out of their league didn’t mean they were more attractive than Rodger or Shaw, it meant that they had absolutely nothing in common with them.

And because neither had the social skills neither knew how to approach women they wanted to approach they became frustrated. In most cases of these Killer Simps like Rodger and Roof they didn’t even know how to introduce themselves to an average woman let alone the woman of their fantasies.

As their frustration turned into bitterness they began to hate the object of their affection. And if they couldn’t have her, they sought out to hurt her.

 Even though she didn’t exist in anyplace but their heads. In the cases of Rodger and Shaw, most of the women they liked had no idea they were even alive. Rodger didn’t even have the courage to introduce himself to anyone. In Shaw’s case most of the Asian women he pursued didn’t know he was even interested in them until he rushed up to them and made his thirsty pleas for their phone numbers.

All of these cases also show a disturbing trend regarding how men are being socialized. In each of these cases it’s clear that none of these males were taught any social skills regarding how to communicate with the opposite sex at all. Because they weren’t taught how to interact with women, they became frustrated and went on to throw a violent adult tempertantrum when they couldn’t think of a way to get the object of their affection to respond to them.

Men like Eliot Rodger, Tyrelle Shaw, and Dylan Storm Roof never grew up to understand that there’s a lot of rejection when it comes to dating and relationships. Just because a guy likes a girl or a kind of girl doesn’t mean they’ll like them.

And because these men didn’t have any coping skills, none of these men knew how to move on after being rejected. Instead they wallowed in their self-pity making themselves out to be a victim of an imaginary woman or kind of woman who they thought did them wrong by rejecting them.

It’s clear to me many men today aren’t learning a basic tenet of dating and life in general: It takes a lot of NO to get to YES. And a man is going to have to get used to hearing NO from lots of women to hear that YES from one single woman. This is why it’s never smart for a man to fixate on one woman or one kind of woman. The women that may be attracted to him may not have any of the physical attributes of his dream woman.

And in most cases his dream woman simply doesn’t exist. The images Madison Avenue advertisers and Hollywood movie studios produce are ALL FAKE. So pursuing women who fit that ideal is a fallacy.

 Men are also not learning another tenet of dating and life: Sex is not everything. In the cases of Eliot Rodger, Tyrelle Shaw and even Dylan Roof, all these guys probably thought having sex with the girl of their dreams would elevate their social status. And because they chased sex, they objectified the women they pursued. What they actually wanted wasn’t sex. It was what they thought sex would get them: Social currency with more popular men and women and acceptance by them.

Most Simps believe that if they date and have sex with an attractive popular woman they’ll be seen as attractive and popular as well. Not understanding that neither sex nor relationships are social currency. If an attractive woman does take the time to go on a date with a LAME they’re STILL LAME. And if a man is a LAME and by chance he has sex with the girl of his dreams, HE IS STILL A LAME.

And what makes guys like Rodger, Shaw and Roof LAMES are the guys themselves. And that’s something most Simps never come to understand. The reason why guys like Eliot Rodger, Dylan Roof and Tyrelle Shaw couldn’t get the attention of the women wasn’t the women. It was THEM.

Because all these guys lacked self-confidence, self-esteem and had no sense of self worth they were INVISIBLE to most people. And because they radiated no masculine energy none of these guys appeared attractive to any woman.

And as they faded from the sight of both men and women they wound up brooding in their own rage.

What’s most disturbing about this trend with violent Simps is that we’re seeing more and more men having meltdowns because they couldn’t win the affection of the girl of their dreams. It’s clear to me that parents aren’t teaching boys how to pursue relationships with women. In the real world the dating scene is filled with a lot of rejection, and if men like Rodger, Roof and Shaw are the rule these days it’s clear many haven’t been taught how to how approach a woman nor have they learned the discipline or resolve to move on after hearing her say no to them. There are four women for every one man on earth and most of these guys don’t see any of those women because they’re too caught up in a fantasy created by Madison Avenue advertisers and Hollywood movie studios.  

I go into detail about these Kinds of Simps in my eBook Stop Simpin-Why men don’t need Finance to Get Romance. The second edition of this book is FREE on Smashwords. I urge every man out there to download this eBook and read it, it’ll change your life and possibly change your perspective on women and relationships.

Dylan Roof-Anatomy of a Bitch-Made™ COWARD

In South Carolina a few days ago, Dylan Roof decided to shoot up a church and kill nine people in the hopes of starting a Race War.

It truly shows me what a coward he is.

What makes Dylan Roof a Coward? The fact that he went into a Church where people were worshipping God. A place where people were defenseless, unarmed and completely vulnerable. And instead of expressing his hatred to those Black people face-to-face so they could know what kind of person he was and what they were dealing with, Roof took advantage of the hospitality of the Christians who invited him into their house of worship and used that as an opportunity murder them.

Only a coward attacks people from behind. And what Dylan Roof did was the equivalent of shooting an unarmed man in the back. Roof says he wanted to go to a place where there was a predominantly Black population like Charleston, but the real reason he chose that church was the fact he was afraid of being confronted by people who could actually fight back. If he had started shooting on a college campus like he originally planned, chances are, someone might have started shooting back.

Dylan Roof chose that church because he was too afraid to face the Black people he hated so much face-to-face, so he wanted to make sure they were unable to defend themselves before he murdered them.

Yeah, Dylan Roof hated Black people. But he was more afraid of us than anything. If he didn’t have his nine millimeters of courage I doubt he’d have the backbone or the balls to even think about acting on his malicious intentions at that church.

Roof is the kind of overgrown Bitch-Made™ coward who sits in his mother’s basement listening to FOX News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and reading racist websites like Yahoo! and posting to White Supremacist message boards where other insecure White males sit around ranting how much they hate niggers.

But never looking once in the mirror at the person they hate the most.

Roof is no Different than your Pro-Black AFROSIMPTRICK militant ranting about White Supremacy. Or your Arab ISIL terrorist talking about an Islamic State they’ll never build. In their eyes someone else is to blame for them being where they are in life. In most cases most of these insecure inadequate males are still living inside their own heads pointing the finger at some imaginary person who they hold responsible for all the poor choices they made in their own lives.  

Guys like Dylan Roof spend most of their time posing for pictures on their website with their guns and their confederate flags or writing long rants about White Power and how niggers, Jews, and Mexicans are destroying their country, but never taking one moment to examine their behavior and see how they made decisions that destroyed their own lives.

It’s interesting how this ninth grade dropout never once took a look at his own lack of education led to him being in the dysfunctional situation he was in. But co-dependent racists never want to do any self-examination; in their eyes they’re always the victims of some phantom person who is abusing them.

Roof said in his manifesto that the murder of Trayvon Martin inspired him to begin his plans for mass murder of Blacks in Charleston. He felt the indictment of George Zimmerman for murder was unjust and unfair.

Even though George Zimmerman was Hispanic and Jewish. Two of the three races he said he hated so much. But it shows you how illogical Dylan Roof actually is and how much his hatred of Black people blinded him with rage towards everyone.

It’s clear the precedent established first by that Florida court a few years ago, and by our own Black President of the United States and our Black Attorney General a few months ago opened the door for White Supremacists like Dylan Roof to walk through. When Eric Holder gave George Zimmerman a pass for violating Trayvon Martin’s Civil Rights, it gave other sociopaths like Dylan Roof justification to think it was okay to murder and terrorize Black people.

Since Black lives didn’t matter to the two most powerful Black men in the world regarding Travyon Martin, Dylan Roof didn’t see a reason to value them either. Seizing the opportunity to exterminate Black lives, and take back his country, Dylan Roof thought the thought the AME Church massacre as the flashpoint for a so-called “Race War” they thought would change things for the better for White people, and he’d be some sort of hero by all the White Supremacists he hung out with online.

Again, living inside his head the same way James Holmes, Adam Lanza, and Eliot Rodger did.

But in never once looking in the mirror at the person responsible for his situation. The only person responsible for Dylan Roof being in the situation he was in was Dylan Roof.  

What truly makes Dylan Roof a coward were his actions after committing the murders of those nine innocent people. Unlike other Bitch-Made™ cowards like Adam Lanza and Eliot Rodger killed themselves because they couldn’t face up to the evil acts they committed, Roof ran out of that Church and drove around. And when he found out that his act of terrorism didn’t start the race war he imagined in his head, he started looking for a way out.

Don’t let anyone fool you, Dylan Roof was not a victim in any way shape or form. None of the excuses Bitch-Made™ cowards like James Holmes, Adam Lanza and Eliot Rodger tried to use apply here. Dylan Roof wasn’t mentally ill. Nor was he in a drug induced haze. This pathetic little man with a tiny penis was of a perfectly sound mind. He sat there planning the murders of Black people for months with malice of forethought.

Only when things didn’t work out the way he imagined them he ran away like a coward.

In the aftermath of the murders at the church, the coward Dylan Roof wouldn’t even face the families of the people he murdered at his arraignment. Instead of going to court to meet all those people face-to-face, this Bitch-Made™ weasel decided to make his plea in front of a video camera. Showing us all how cowardly these Racist White Supremacists are without their nine millimeters of courage. Again, if this coward had to go face-to-face with Black people expressing his hatred of them, chances are he wouldn’t have the backbone or the balls say a word to them.

What’s even more dangerous than Dylan Roof were the people around him. Many both Black and White knew Dylan Roof had been planning these murders for months. And these enablers lied, denied and made excuses as this sociopath plotted and planned his act of terror. To me, it’s the silence of these people that’s more dangerous than Dylan Roof’s violence. Just like in the case of George Zimmerman, their inaction is what led to the deaths of those nine innocent people. In both cases people knew both of these men were ticking time bombs and just sat there and waited for them to explode.  

Albert Einstein once said “All it takes is for evil to win is for good people to do nothing.” Thanks to so-called good people doing nothing evil won in South Carolina. The sad part of all this is if those good people in that Florida jury and that Attorney General’s office in Washington had taken a moment to stand up to George Zimmerman years ago, a coward like Dylan Roof wouldn’t have had the courage to kill nine other innocent Black people.

Nothing New About the All-New All Different Marvel

Okay, I said I wouldn’t write a rant about the All-New All-Different Marvel. But after reading the premise for this latest gimmick, I can honestly say it’s the most retarded thing I have ever read. Y’know what Marvel needs? An All-new All-different editorial team with a new vision and a fresh perspective for Marvel’s catalog of characters.

All-New All-Different Marvel seems like it takes a page from DC’s Dysfunctional New 52, mixes it with crushed ice and the remnants of Heroes Reborn According to the masterminds of this hot mess, In the aftermath of the Third Secret Wars, The Living Tribunal and all the cosmic beings are all dead, all the alternate universes in the Marvel Universe are gone, and the Marvel Universe is now a single world called Battleworld comprised of bits and pieces of the previous universe including a portion of the 616 New York City.

If that makes sense to you, then you’re what’s wrong with the comic book industry. Axel Alonso takes a page from Dan Didio’s fucked up business plan for DC Comics and makes comics more FUBAR instead of making them FUN.

Like Marvel NOW, three years ago, we get a bunch of characters in new costumes and new gimmicks. A whole bunch of cancellations and  slew of a bunch of new number one issues. And yet another promise that Marvel Comics will be easier for new readers to access.

Good Gravy.

Y’know what would make comics easier to access? If Marvel and DC would STOP rebooting their universes every three or so years.

The whole All-new All-Different Marvel is False Advertising as I see it. If comic fans peel behind the label they’ll see it’s the same old Just as it’s been Marvel Comics readers have been getting since 1994 with The Crossing, Onslaught, and Heroes Reborn. A promise of change, and then things going back to classic in three to five years.

It’s getting harder and harder to care about comics because just as you get into them everything gets made all-new and all different for absolutely NO REASON.

I don’t think anyone at Marvel understands what the phrase All-New All-Different actually means. Back in 1975 the All-New All-Different X-men worked because…it was actually ALL NEW and ALL DIFFERENT. The original poor-selling team of whitebread X-men were replaced with a team of international heroes readers of all ages and races could relate to and identify with. A team that better fit the metaphor of what being a mutant meant with cool powers and the angst to go with it.

Yeah, The mission of the X-men remained the same; they were people born with X-tra powers. And some story elements that worked were kept, along with some of the cooler big bads like Magneto and the Juggernaut, but the premise Of the Len Wein/Chris Claremont/ Dave Cockrum/John Byrne’s X-men was completely different from the Lee/Kirby/Dick Ayers X-men or the Neal Adams X-men. The story models were completely different. The book had a completely different feel from the previous X-men comics from the 60’s. It was actually all new and all different compared to the original X-men concept.

All-new All-Different Marvel just feels like a pitiful attempt to Copy Dysfunctional Dan Didio and his dysfunctional New Fifty-two concept. A concept that has FAILED since its initial launch in 2011. DC’s Brand has lost market share and merchandising dollars as lifelong fans have stopped buying comics, action figures and other merchandise.

The way I see it All-new-All-different Marvel is a huge mistake for the Marvel Comics brand. Marvel studios is on a roll with films like Avengers: Age of Ultron which follow the old 616 comics to the letter. Marvel Legends and Marvel Select are back to doing Gangbuster business for Marvel in the action figure markets. Kids are buying Marvel Merchandise like crazy. Why kill all that momentum with a stupid gimmick? 

Okay, the comics aren’t selling like they used to back during the boom days of the 1990’s. But what drove fans like myself out of the marketplace was all of these damn gimmick stories like Onslaught, Heroes Reborn and stunts like Marvel NOW that changed shit up for the sake of changing it. The formula for superheroes is time tested to work, but most creators today keep trying to reinvent a wheel that already spins.

Promising readers an all-new-all-different reading experience Promising us that things will never be the same, but then giving us comics WORSE than we read in the 1960’s, 1970’s and the 1980s and part of the 1990’s.

The big problem at Marvel in its publishing division has always been the fact that a bunch of New Jack Fools in creative keep trying to fix what ain’t broken. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby gave readers a universe of time-tested characters that WORK. There’s no need to change what already works.

To all the comic book creators out there: You’re not gonna become the next Stan Lee or Jack Kirby by doing what they DIDN’T do. So stop trying so damn hard to be all-new and all-different. Because your version of all-new and all different usually just SUCKS.

My Question to the bigwigs in the comic book industry is: Why is it so hard to actually do something…All-New and All-Different? Or even give us a fresh take on an old character? Mark Waid and Chris Samnee gave us that on Daredevil. And it was great. But just as fans got back into Daredevil…The Universe gets rebooted around him taking all the momentum from that book just as the new TV series debuted on Netflix.

So much for brand synergy.  All the fans of the AWESOME TV show won’t be able to go pick up that comic at the comic shop and find out if the comics are as cool as the show.

My biggest issue with today’s comic creators is that they act like writing and designing comic books are rocket science. They put characters in overdesigned costumes that hurt your eyes. They make stories go longer than they should. They take characters in directions they shouldn’t go. Simplly put, they try TOO DAMN HARD.

Latest book in the Isis
Series! Same price as 4 Comics
For me writing fantasy stories like those in the Isis series is EASY. It’s basic good guys and bad guys. Right and wrong. Black and white. Good triumphing over evil. Personally, I think too many in the comic book industry overthink things and overanalyze them. When creators like myself keep it simple, readers enjoy the same old characters and continue to buy more new comics year after year.

Shawn Reaches Out To The Goth Subculture

I’m planning on releasing my new novel Spinsterella on Halloween of this year (Moving it up from Christmas) And I’d like to get some feedback from the guys and ghouls in the Goth subculture before I publish it.

To write this novel I’ve been doing a lot of research on Goths and the Goth subculture and I want to get things as accurate as possible for my novel. I want to make every effort to present Goths in the most positive light possible and I don’t want to perpetuate any stereotypes about people or the subculture.

So far I’ve learned a lot about the Goth subculture from my year of research. Sophistique Noir’s website gave me tremendous insight into Goth fashion, and YouTubers like LeahMouse, Drac MakensLigeiaResurrected  The Gothic Alice, Toxic Tears, Dumpster Dollie and It’s Black Friday have given me an understanding of the lexicon, music and lives of people who participate in the Goth Subculture not only in the U.S, but all over the world.

From my research I’ve learned a lot about the subculture. Things like Baby Bat phase, and how people have stayed in the subculture for years and even decades. Some Goths have even married and started families while being part of the subculture.

I’ve learned that the subculture is very inclusive and very diverse. There are Trad Goths, Cyber Goths, Corporate Goths, and even Fit Goths. People all over the world participate in the subculture and all are accepted. White, Black, Hispanic and Asians all live the Goth lifestyle and in most cases all people see is the content of people’s character not the color of their skin under their makeup. That’s what I like most about the subculture how it’s inclusive and accepting of people all over the world.

From what I’ve learned about Goths from their websites, videos and my own experiences with Goths, I think I got things right with the Matilda character in Spinsterella. But the more I learn about the subculture, the more want to learn about it. As I’ve stated before I see a lot of nice people I could be friends with. And I really want to tell a story that people in the subculture can relate to and present the fairest and most balanced picture of it.

So many people make judgments about Goths based on their dark clothing and spooky makeup. Calling them devil worshippers, blood drinkers, and some would even call them mentally ill. But I know none of that is true. While Goths do see things from a dark perspective, most are hardworking, decent people.

With this book I want to present a humanized portrayal of a Goth heroine everyone can relate to like I did with other characters I’ve written like Marilyn Marie from All About Marilyn and Colleen Anderson from The Thetas, and Nikki Desmond from All About Nikki. A book that will give readers a better understanding of people who participate in the subculture and some perspective on their experiences after reading it.

Yeah, Spinsterella is a romance novel. A romantic comedy. But I’d like to think Goths want romance too. And from what I’ve seen in real life and in You Tube videos Goths have close friendships, share a lot of love and a lot of laughs. I’m hoping they get a lot of the jokes in between the lines of the story. I’m a big Tim Burton fan and his films like Beetlejuice were some influence on the story.

Right now I’m in the middle of the second round of edits. Working from a paperback proof this time so I can get things just right. And I’d like to get a little help in getting those tiny details just right.  

I’m hoping to have both the paperback and the eBook versions of Spinsterella up on on Halloween. I know that Halloween is the biggest day of the year for the subculture and I want to have the books available that Saturday in paperback and KindleUnlimited. I know many Goths are on a tight budget so the eBook will be FREE that Saturday as my treat to readers. With everybody’s help I’m hoping to present one of the most positive portrayals of Goths and the Goth subculture to readers all over the world.
