The World Through Their Eyes – Depeche Mode – It’s Construction Time Again – My Favorite CD! – Their Message Is Strong & Raw – A Ministry Of LOVE, In Itself

I promised to share my eclectic music tastes with you. I love electronic rock, especially from Europe.

Depeche Mode has to be one of my all-time favorite groups. I love their Euro industrial electronic rock sound., But more than that, I love that their messages, so bold and so raw. The messages resonate with me.


I’ve been a big fan of Depeche Mode. I think their 1st album was Construction Time Again. I love almost every song on that album. I’ve been into Depeche Mode for a long time but recently, I guess because of my membership in Spotify, YT Music, and Pandora, as well as other music streaming services, I stumble on old songs that I used to love, that I almost forgot about.

I don’t listen to new music much at all. Anyway, there is a remarkably interesting story behind me rediscovering how much I love Depeche Mode.

“Love Is Starving For Itself” – It Needs Love Today! – Send URs Right Away – Hate’s Going ‘Round – So Don’t Delay

I believe that God inspired my thought to post about Love today.  I am not being as self-important as this may sound. 

Most people do believe that God created the universe.  We may differ on exactly who God is, or if the name is really God, but most of us agree that man did not create the universe.  That is outstanding that most of us can surrender our egos to a higher power.

Most believe that some entity, character, energy, spirit, or vibration created the universe, and therefore created us.

So, if “God” created us, and if we believe in “God”, then we must believe that “God” guides us, inspires us, sends us messages and visions.

God sent me a vision to create this post.  It occurred, as it usually does when I was jogging the other day.  I listened to Stevie Wonder’s album Songs In The Key Of Life.  I was mesmerized by the song Love’s In Need of Love Today.  I was in awe over all of the songs on this album, but especially this song.


 “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” – Lao Tzu


The lyrics and artistry deliver a compelling-needed message, in a most bone-chilling way.  I am sure that God gives Stevie Wonder such visions too.  Stevie said himself, on one of the video performances below the “Love is starving for itself”.  I liked it so much, I used in the title.

Love is starving for attention.  Fear, panic, and uncertainty is causing hate to go ‘round, breaking many hearts.  And, we must stop this, before it’s gone too far!    Continue reading ““Love Is Starving For Itself” – It Needs Love Today! – Send URs Right Away – Hate’s Going ‘Round – So Don’t Delay”

How I Feel About Jared Kushner’s Statement On “The Black People” Not Desiring Success – Ya Know The Ole, You Can Lead A Horse To Water, But U Can’t Make That MOFO Drink

November 4, 2020, Post Election Night Comments

Last night’s US election results clearly show that the United States of America is Racist, embraces corruption, and has limited regard for humanity or our God-given paradise.  – Kevy

We now have the perfect ingredients laid out on the table for the preparation of a savory pot of Revolution Gumbo.

This post focuses on Jared Kushner’s comments about Black people, but it does much more.  

It points out where I believe that Blacks can up their game, Big Time!  Perhaps the realization of the election will catapult their understanding, solidarity, and swift action.  

…Perhaps Liberal White Boomers too, who desire harmonious Race Relations, but not Racial Equality or Racial Equity if it adversely affects their privilege and 401Ks.  

It also neatly ties together opinions that I have shared in prior posts that seem to be coming into fruition.  Kevy

November 3, 2020

I have the windows open here in Colorado and it’s in the 70s.  It’s an incredibly beautiful day.  We get a lot of sunshine here. 

I wanted to send this post because I know a lot of people have anxiety about the election even if they are not in America because it’s going to affect them in some way.  I don’t really have a lot of anxiety, but I do know that our future is going to be more different than our past.  …Much different.  I don’t know how but I do feel in my spirit that there is a calling.  And it’s not a calling for a prophet or messiah.  It’s a calling of several of them.  …To prepare, adapt, as well as continue to move this shift in the right direction.

You May Not Believe in God – But Know That Satan’s At Work, Bigtime! – Secrets on How He Works – The Devil’s Bag of Tricks

I am reposting this article because of an epiphany that I just had in a discussion with a dear minister friend.  In this conversation, I realized that Satan operates from the same bag of tricks.  The tools used against me, as a Black man, by institutional racism, by friends, family, and The Black Community, are universal tools.  

As the cliché says, Same Devil, Different day.  Kevy


When I refer to Satan, I don’t think of a red naked man with horns and a pitchfork. That is a fairy tale that I haven’t believed since maybe the age of 5 years. I included such images in this post, only because everyone can relate to these images of evil, as they relate to “images” of Jesus.  I don’t believe in the White image of Jesus either, though pictures of White Jesus and Virgin Mary hang on my wall, left by my dear mother. 

I don’t believe that Satan unto himself is of flesh. Satan is simply a spirit, an evil one that wants to separate us from God, and therefore prevent our access to the Kingdom, and to blessings while here on Earth.  He wants to distract us from our beauty and power.  He infiltrates the flesh.  He overcomes the minds of the weak and convinces them that they act on their own accord.  He is cunning and baffling like The Lobster is with coronavirus.  Or, like America treats Blacks.  Or, deception in our families, amongst friends, and humanity.  Satan’s spirit is enmeshed in our destruction of the planet, the once-was paradise that God granted us.  This is where Satan manifested resides today.  

Satan doesn’t want us to know how powerful we are through the Holy Spirit. That is why he’s anxious to block our access to God. He (his spirit) wants us to think that he is more than a mere spirit, a thought, an imagining. He wants us to believe that he has power over us.

But he doesn’t, provided we don’t surrender to him. Continue reading “You May Not Believe in God – But Know That Satan’s At Work, Bigtime! – Secrets on How He Works – The Devil’s Bag of Tricks”

Black People – U Sustain Racism 2! – Change Requires More Than Just Talk, Posting, Scriptures & Sitting On UR Azz – Do Sumthin Now! – Voting For Trump Would Be Better Than Your Lazy Actions!

Black People, prepare yourself for making significant changes in your approach to racism, inactive Black people especially. The world is fed-up! We’ve had enough!  ..not just of White Privilege, but of Black Privilege and deceptive sellouts, who profit from pretending to care about how inequality and inequity affects their own people.

Approach Black racism as though it impacts you, or a family member.  It does.  We are all brothers and sisters, under the God in which we supposedly believe.

Blacks are screwed up on racism big time!  Blacks (we) clearly contribute to their own demise, by not using our most powerful weapons, money, and action.

Black leaders often give the appearance of action, but just talk about the problem.  There is money to be made in just talk.  It keeps the Racism Industry vibrant and self-sustaining.  Taking tangible action could eliminate it., though

Others superficially wait on the Lord to do the work, though He gave us minds, free will, and discernment.  Why put on The Lord what you can do yourselves?

Still, others pretend to do the work but are simply sustaining their existence to keep grant and foundation funds coming into their coffers.

I know what I’m talking about.  I’ve experienced each of these types, and I’ve had enough!  I will write vigorously about it, but I will not write alone.  I help people…many people, giving them tangibles from which they can benefit.  …measurable and tangible benefits, not just talk and showcasing.

Because of the silence White Liberals and Self-Serving and lazy Blacks, I have decided to vote for Trump, or not vote at all.  I will also explain my reasoning in a separate post.  This is a repost to reach more people with this message.  Kevy


Today (actually yesterday) was one of my usual days.

I went to Washington Park. I jogged. I was very proud of myself because I ran 7.51 miles, about two and a half months after being exposed to the Coronavirus. I feel like I’m living my truth. I’m actually living and experiencing what I claim about Coronavirus, Health, and Devirusizing. I had no problems. I actually ran an 8:24 mile, which for a 60-year-old man.

But what was different on this day is, obviously my having thoughts on the coronavirus, and recent police killings and police brutality against blacks.  I’m a black male, so I’m sort of like enemy number one to the world.

20200529_124418I noticed a bunch of policemen in the park and I wondered, what are they doing? They were handing out something. I didn’t know what they were handing out. Later found out they offering Denver Police Department stickers.  I guess they were doing like a little PR or something in light of their reputation.

On this run, two things became clearer to me.  I had a few epiphanies on this day and I want to share them with you, especially after attending the George Floyd protest march and rally in Denver, Colorado, USA.

Murals In Da House! – Denver’s Outdoor Art Galleries – Turn Up On This House Music Art Walk Mashup – Vibrant Artwork Blows Minds Like Mine

In my opinion, the city of Denver’s personality is very dynamically evolving before my eyes.

With the legalization of marijuana in 2013, the city is booming with new construction, progressive legislation, and appreciation for its natural beauty.  Nearly 39% of Denver’s population is under 30 years old.  The median age is 37 years!

Millennials really showed their true colors, passion, and creatively recently with the protests which are still active.  They let my old ass know who’s running the future, them!  The protests were filled with artists displaying their works.  Additionally, there were concurrent art festivals occurring, as the protests were going on in the background.  I have been changed by the art that I’ve seen.  I have an energized appreciation for, but not for art in a museum.  …Mural Art in the alleyways of the city. 

Prior to the coronavirus, I used to visit the Denver Museum of Art regularly.  Every first Saturday of the month it’s free.  Many of Colorado’s museums are free periodically throughout the year.  Due to the coronavirus, they are closed, without further notice.

Throughout the protest and pandemic, I have never been one to sit at home in fear, sickened by around-the-clock news.  I am still not regularly watching the news and am handling today’s crucial times optimistically.  I am out every day enjoying the scenes and sites of my beautiful city.

Today’s That Day – Juneteenth 2020 – Whatzup Wit Dat? – What Makes Denver Colorado’s Celebration So Special – The Mural Art Show Makes It Mo Betta

I was aware of the history of Juneteenth, but not until recent years.  That’s important to note for a few reasons. 

First, I want to make it clear to non-African Americans, as you may be actively trying to “relate” to the Black experience during Revolution 2020, that it is not only you who must become familiar with African American history, some Blacks are foreign to much of it as well. 

37329500_2263982973619075_195988896838844416_o

Secondly, Juneteenth may not be familiar to many Blacks (and most Americans) simply because, though it is a part of American History, it is really a direct part of Texas’ history. 

Its relevance may not be as appreciated by states other than Texas.  But during current times this celebration is becoming increasingly more important.  There are demands to make Juneteenth a national holiday in honor of African American slaves gaining freedom.

White Liberal Boomers – ‘White Silence’ Is Unacceptable In Revolution 2020 –Take Firm Action On Racism – ‘Feelings R Not Enough! – 5 Tips For White Liberal Boomers Based On Experience With Annie

White people, all people, prepare yourself for making significant changes in your approach to racism, Liberal White people especially. The world is fed-up! We’ve had enough!

White Silence won’t work in the state we’re in today. We’re in the midst of a revolution.  Blacks recognize that you are benefiting from an unpaid humanitarian debt every day that you enjoy your privilege.

Instead of approaching Racism, Inequality, and Inequity as though it’s awful, and that you must help these poor Blacks, approach your dilemma as though you have a spiritual debt that must be paid.  You do. 

Approach Black racism as though it impacts you, or a family member.  It does.  We are all brothers and sisters, under the God in which we supposedly believe. 

Many Black are screwed up on racism too.  I will post separately on this side of the equation.

But Blacks clearly contribute to their own demise, by not using their most powerful weapons, money, and action.   Black leaders often give the appearance of action, but just talk about the problem.  This is money to be made in just talk.  It keeps the Racism Industry vibrant and self-sustaining.  Taking tangible ction could eliminate it.

Others superficially wait on the Lord to do the work, though He gave us minds, free will, and discernment.  Why put on The Lord what you can do yourselves?  Still, others pretend to do the work but are simply sustaining their existence to keep grant and foundation funds coming into their coffers.

I know what I’m talking about.  I’ve experienced each of these types, and I’ve had enough!  I will write vigorously about it, but I will not write alone.  I help people…many people, giving them tangibles from which they can benefit.  …measurable and tangible benefits, not just talk and showcasing.

These two groups are more damaging to Black Inequity & Inequality than outright racists.  The latter are resolute and clear.  They take action.  The former is deceptive and keeps Blacks, in the aggregate bound and tied.

For this reason, I have decided to vote for Trump, or not vote at all.  I will also explain my reasoning in a separate post.  Kevy


It’s time for you to “get off the pot or shit”, a New Orleans saying. “Shit or get off the pot” – Make a decision. This phrase is most commonly used towards a person or group whom the speaker feels are behaving indecisively. Often occurs in tense situations where the speaker believes a quick decision is necessary or urgent. Sometimes delivered as life advice.” – Urban Dictionary – Deome June 24, 2015

White Liberal Boomers are at a fork in the road and must choose a side. They can no longer ride the middle line as they have for years.

A tsunami of change is already here, and they will be most negatively impacted and left behind if they continue to surf the wave of indifferent, with little action. They can no longer remain neutral, indifferent, or impassionate on racism. They will be held accountable in the aftermath.

If they do not change their ways, they may lose friends, as I lost my friend Annie, their peace of mind, morality will trouble them, and they will be criticized for their inaction, “when shit hits the fan”. Well…Shit has hit the fan!

I just lost my White Liberal Boomer friend Annie last week. Change is happening within our circles and in those around us.

“When your conscience begins to bother you about your past actions, that’s your Soul wanting you to wake up.”Andrea de Michaelis – Creating my own reality, one thought at a time

Another way of this statement is, White Liberals walk your talk. Stand up for the principals to which you have professed for years!

There are many reasons why I feel this way, but let’s first look at population numbers to gain a greater perspective.

I direct the statements above specifically to White Liberal Boomers (Born between 1944 and 1964 (approximately, don’t try to escape), currently between 56-76 years old – 76 million in the U.S. (or so)Kasasa) because Generations X, Y, and Z are already on board and navigating this Revolution 2020. The Millennials are the ones igniting it. I admire their courage and determination. They won’t be stopped because it’s their future that they are fighting for in addition to fighting against racism.

I was told yesterday at a rally, by a young gay HIV-infected protester, “I know that it’s risky to protest with corona and all, but standing up against police violence and discrimination against Blacks is too important to ignore.”

At rallies this week, as I filmed tens of thousands of protestors, I had an epiphany that these young ‘rebel rouser’ are our future leaders. They dominate the population and demand change. …Look…

The Legacy of Slavery in the US – Coloradopoet – Guest Blogger – I’m Excited To Hear Coloradopoet Share Her Perspective

I am exhausted physically and emotionally but continue to participate in rallies with the Black Lives Matter Revolution. 

I’ve cried often, both in joy and sorrow, lost my voice a few times, and have felt intense anger.  I’ve spent 9 days and nights at protests, rallies, and marches.  I have, as have nearly each of 10’s of thousands of participants in Denver, Colorado, USA, protested nonviolently.

I lost a white friend (Annie) who was infuriated by my expression of emotions about “white people” after I  repeatedly watched the George Floyd crucifixion to prepare the video Black People – All People Just Want To Live.  Her last words to me on the phone were ‘fuck you”, then she hung up. 

It’s like I went to an emotional amusement park, where only some of the rides are amusing.  But, I will return to blogging and vlogging this week as I regroup.

I am excited to share this post by Coloradopoet.  In the post-Black People – All People Just Want To Live, I invited others to share their perspectives on all things racial.  Coloradopoet answered.  I am hopeful that Coloradopoet will share more posts in the future.  I am hopeful that one day that you will be encouraged to share fresh or already published content, especially on racism.  Can we talk?

We must not be like my friend Annie.  I will write about her in a coming post.

White people must not get so defensive and must be willing to talk about the realities of racism.  They must try to imagine how Blacks must feel in this revolution, then try to imagine again, on top of that.

Most of today’s Whites were born into the privilege of this hateful inhumanity, innocently.  Most of today’s Blacks were born into the barbarism and disparity of this hateful inhumanity, innocently.  But together we must change it, or it will destroy civilization as we ‘used to know it’.  It is not the same anymore.

I offer the warmest gratitude to Coloradopoet for choosing discussion and engagement, as opposed to denial and anger.  Kevy Continue reading “The Legacy of Slavery in the US – Coloradopoet – Guest Blogger – I’m Excited To Hear Coloradopoet Share Her Perspective”

SHARE – Kevy’s Back – He’s Been Hanging With Corona Though – Now He’s Separating Wheat From Tares

As you get older, you find that often the wheat, disentangling itself from the chaff, comes out to meet you. – Gwendolyn Brooks


Friends, I am finally returning to Life Seasons As A Teacher, more passionate than ever! I have been on Life’s Road and have become more discerned, strengthened, and corrected. I have been tried many times, but never convicted. I have many stories to share in future posts.

But I must first present content on the matter at hand, Corona.

I am returning with an enemy whom I befriended for a bit. Her name is Corona. She’s left me now, stronger than I was before she came into my life. Corona had to move on from me. She is no longer amused with me and knew that there is a world of more suitable and submissive mates for her. I am a strong man. Maybe that’s why she left me.

I no longer wish Corona in my life, but I appreciate all that she revealed to me about me, and about ‘people’. …about our world. Her most powerful skill is in her ability to separate the wheat from the tares.

I will be sharing with you, what Corona revealed to me in the next several posts.

Calling All New Orleanians – It Is Gumbo Season! – Filé Gumbo Is In The Air

“Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.” – Confucius

Just as in Thanksgiving kicking off the mirliton season, the Christmas holidays kick off the gumbo season in New Orleans, especially for Black Creole families.

Mirliton is also referred to as chayote squash.  It is a summer squash that has a taste of melon and pecan.  During the holidays traditional creole families half, boil, scrape the fiber out of the shell, thensauté it with onion, garlic, bell pepper, celery, parsley, and spices, then adding Italian breadcrumbs, ham, and shrimp.  We then stuff the mixture into the hollow mirliton shells and bake, topped with butter.  This is very delicious and one of my all-time favorite Creole dishes.  

Gumbo is New Orleans’ most popular dish.  This is a traditional meal all over the state of Louisiana but is especially popular among black families, especially roles.  The ingredients may vary from family to family, neighborhood to neighborhood, and in various parts of the state.  But we do tend to agree that either the gumbo is going to be filé Gumbo or Okra Gumbo.

Filé Gumbo is thickened by filé (dried and ground sassafras leaves) and pan-roasted flour, called a roux.  Okra Gumbo is more popular among roles.  It obviously contains okra, tomatoes, ham, shrimp, and crab, but typically does not contain the variety of ingredients that file gumbo does.

Gumbo is New Orleans’s melting pot dish.  The name is derived from a West African word for okra.  Filé comes from the Choctaw NativeAmerican Indians.  And roux is a much darker version of the French sauce base.
