Black & Hispanic Children Missing, Media, Government Silent, #HelpUsFindUs

Please make sure you share this flyer for a vigil being held for the missing children in Washington D.C.., As much information as possible needs to be shared and seen by any and everyone so no one can play the ignorant card truthfully. And perhaps someone will even step up and help out these missing kids!
****
First of all, I was amazed to learn of the Rilya Alert, which is like the Amber Alert and does not seek to replace it, but instead it aims to be an extension of it for non-white children who are -as we clearly see- extremely under represented in the media as well as by government officials, despite the fact that an overwhelming number of kids missing are not white. You can check out Rilya Alert here.

Washington D.C..
If you know the history of America, the history of Washington D.C., the history of hate and racism America was founded on, it shouldn’t be too hard to understand  when a country has a foundation of hate still holds on to that hate, for some reason.
***
Perhaps that’s because it is virtually impossible to having a good, moral society sprout from a country built on racism, slavery and the slaughtering people for their land. Not to mention all of you who celebrate it every year in November.
 ****
The trends and laws that are of this country are all biased, many of them based originally in racism, the text and wording changed, noting more, as I will be speaking about soon.
 ****
As I said, America was built on racism and it is still run on racism. Before Black men and women were forced and not paid to build the inside and outside structures of the buildings so many American’s admire, the entire district was a slave market.
Many held Black women, men and children in slave pens which I’ll be reading about in a video shortly. That same racist history would repeat itself over, and over, and now today it is still doing so in the case of Black and hispanic children being stolen.
 *****
But why? And how can so many children all at once or even over the span of a couple days even a week go missing and no one in the media or national government make sure this is breaking news and each missing person, especially the children, should have their faces plastered on the front of every media station in America.
*****
As to the why, I have my own fear on that I may speak on later, but for now, please read the below information to help bring awareness to this extremely terrifying happening which of course is still going yet if the government had its way it’d never be known. 
That is a scary thought; a petrifying thought…How many untold horror cases are there in this country…both historical and not…

Places for people to get involved or gain more information follow: 

Black women and girls are going missing and it’s not just in Washington D.C. It’s happening in Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, Atlanta and other urban areas around the country,” she said.

Black and Missing works with law enforcement officials nationwide, the Justice Department, and related stakeholders to spotlight missing persons of color. The organization provides vital resources to families, delivers educational training on personal safety, and more.

Derrica Wilson, a law enforcement veteran, said while many cases involving missing White women tend to garner publicity and sympathy, Black America’s missing sons and daughters, mothers, fathers and elders, are often obscured or ignored.

“We know Blacks and Latinos or any persons of color who go missing, oftentimes don’t receive much-needed media coverage, which could drastically increase the odds of their safe recovery,” said Wilson.

*Also, in Oakland, California, children vanish at a rate of approximately 100 kids per night, victim of the on sex trafficking.  Click here for more on that.
The ‘Hope Without Boundaries’ 5K Walk/Run is a fundraiser for Black & Missing Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring awareness to missing persons of color; provide vital resources and tools to missing person’s families and friends and to educate the minority community on personal safety. Proceeds from the event will go towards: funding for families of the missing, flyer distribution, financial support, victim recovery, and burial service assistance CLICK HERE.
Currently, the members of the Congressional Black Caucus are calling upon Attorney General Jeff Sessions; sadly Sessions is a very well known sexist and racist. Read more HERE.
For more information on the individual cases, click here.
“According to the latest FBI data, as of February 2017, there are a total of 13,591 active missing person records for African American women stored in its National Crime Information Center (NCIC). Of that total, 8,042 were of the ages of 18 and under; 1,419 were between the ages of 19 to 21.

The numbers trouble Natalie Wilson, 47, co-founder of the Black and Missing Foundation, Inc., (BAM FI), a nonprofit she launched with her sister-in-law, Derrica Wilson, 38, back in 2008.

“Black women and girls are going missing and it’s not just in Washington D.C. It’s happening in Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, Atlanta and other urban areas around the country,” she said.

Last question for now… Are either of the following CHILD AGENCY’S INVOLVED???

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Hotline: 1-800-The-Lost

If you believe you are the victim of a trafficking situation or may have information about a potential trafficking situation, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) at 1-888-373-7888.

Something I feel important to post…

“It is communities like New York City that propel our GDP, and it’s the many folks who live in HUD-assisted housing who are a part of that success.”

My Breakdown Watching Netflix Documentary 13

After watching the trailer, and proceeding inward to the documentary “13” I made this. I just don’t understand after everything I say, and everything I show, not just in this video but in all the information available…. No matter your background, facts are facts. And if you have a soul Black, Hispanic, white…this DOES matter.

I was watching just the trailer for the movie or documentary 13 on Netflix (now watching the full documentary) but there’s one scene that sparked a memory that I’ve never shared anybody really yet one that I refer to quite often in my videos. This is the story of the man Who will forever be a part of my soul the man that I saw suffocated by the police when I was about 14 an innocent, black man with narcolepsy suffocated… But it doesn’t stop there.

Back then I used to have a little hope. Hope that if everyone knew about this kind of stuff that I was working with on a national level every day -both public stories and confidential cases, NATIONALLY- I honestly believed that there would be a revolution of some form if these images were being displayed on TVs if the truth was put out there by the media. You must remember I was 14-ish at that time and did not realize the media and the government or one for profit media is never going to show you the truth and you shouldn’t have to have anyone say anything though. Just watching the imagery & just hearing the stories you should be able to make up your own mind and clearly see the obvious this would not be tolerated if it was happening to white people as a majority like it is to the Black community.

I understand my story does not have anything to do with prison per se. But it does have something to do with slavery and racism and the oversee year a.k.a. officer.

Police Targeting Black America; Impact

I wrote this on my phone as I was reading… I hope it makes sense, and I have a feeling this book though it is full of questions I myself cannot answer, I have a feeling it will be sparking many more posts similar to this. It starts with,

“Are you scared?
Where do you as a Black American feel safe?
Where do you feel threatened?
Why are we still afraid?
Haven’t we been afraid long enough?”

This is just the beginning of an amazing book and already the questions posed I feel are vital to knowing oneself and to ending the evilness of white supremacy. I am honored to be reading this, and I want to utilize this books questions with the precious children I work with, whom I know are afraid… Perhaps in digging deeper into their fears and showing them reasons also to be proud and brave, it will counter some of the racist cruelty that has been forced into their innocent minds?

I fear doing this however and this is my biggest problem… It breaks my heart to hear my friends/family tell me they are afraid anytime they see a cop, I understand WHY I just hate that this is reality. So when little children tell me the same thing, it breaks my heart that much more, it also makes me angry. White people whom say there is no racism from cops and that it’s directed at them and they are ignored (load of bs) simply are upset because they want to be the center of attention now and always, in ever matter.

But if any of those sort read this, I ask, how many white people ESPECIALLY white children do you know who that are afraid upon seeing an officer or knowing one could be around? I have yet to meet a white kid that is afraid and I’m talking 3 years old and up. So no; there is nothing they are “wrong” they are doing to provoke violent and too often fatal responded by police, which is a reply I see too often and I don’t know why as it is beyond logic or any other form of credibility.

In fact, a few years ago I asked one white child in my group what he wanted to be when he grew up.

“A cop!” He replied after a couple of seconds. I was a bit taken off guard because that’s the last job I expected, so I asked him why. This is word by EXCITED word what he said:

“So I can shoot people!”

That was his answer. He was barely 5 years old. What does that answer say about white cops and the American police department in general? What does the difference in his response vs the Black children’s response to police say? Never have I had a Black child give me that response.

That isn’t to say I’ve never had Black children that didn’t want to be a cop; in fact in one of my first cases a 15 year old wanted to be a cop. He suffered from mental illness, and during one of his episodes his mom called the cops, thinking of how he respected them I am sure. Even though he was hurting no one but himself with a knife to his face when they arrived, they took his life. (See video on this post).

I know my writings are depressing; they are real, though, and instead of letting it make you sad or feel hopeless rise against that and feel anger! Don’t let depression take hold; sadly that’s not a luxury available that I see. It is sad and I wish I didn’t have this page but I do because if I don’t speak what I know then in just as guilty as them.

Back to the response these children gave me, years apart the white never knew anyone in my current group of course. Both of these innocent souls have been tarnished by police racism, bigotry and brutality. The white child thinking it’s not only “cool” but ACCEPTABLE to kill; while the Black children are afraid of hearing that answer because a part of childhood has been stolen.

How many times I’ve heard someone say one of the following or something all too similar makes me sick to my soul:

“That could have been my father,” or “my son,” “my brother,” “my nephew,” “my husband,” or that could have been “me”…

I’ve not had anyone other this non-white children and adults confide this horrific fact, and it’s a fact I grew up hearing my friends/family talk about and it enraged me as it does now because I don’t have to worry; and that is not right! If the people I am with have to worry, so should I! Until non-whites have the right to not worry, then no one should have the right that white and light skin people do.

Water Danger and Crisis Across America

 

Despite Flint’s water crisis being at least discussed on national media…sometimes…though not nearly covered enough, especially with the criminal governor still being free) I have seen even less regarding the problem with water contamination nationwide, not to mention air pollution and other dangerous toxin related issues. These toxic zones can be found mainly in the poor and/or Black communities of America.

For a country so “developed” the American government show little to less concern for its people and our well being.(I’d like to note, I am not singling out President Obama-this is the work and acceptance of generations along with members of the government; not one person alone.)

Though I am not staying in Alabama, where I am currently staying for a few months also has problems with water contamination. These people regularly seem to be getting a notice on the door to not drink the water a common thing.

It’s so common here not everyone respects the risk spoken either due to disbelief or no other options. The scariest part to me is Continue reading Water Danger and Crisis Across America

Video: Reading a Short and Relevant Essay by Tupac Shakur, 1992

Looking through some of Tupac’s writings I found this short essay he wrote…sadly I believe it to still be relevant today so I decided I’d read and share…

My Video Response to Black History & Fox News Own, Stacey Dash

I only agree with her in one way; that is, Black History month should be abolished. Why? BECAUSE THERE IS TOO MUCH BLACK HISTORY FOR 1 MONTH, A SHORT MONTH AT THAT; BECAUSE EVERY MONTH SHOULD BE BLACK HISTORY MONTH JUST AS EVERY MONTH IS WHITE HISTORY MONTH!foxnews

And when Black history month comes, it is never the truth we would learn; no. It was slavery, the civil rights movement or Dr. King. Never anything about Black history in Africa; the foundations of some of the most iconic buildings in D.C. including the White House (even though they had to be done under an extremely VILE situation). The wrongs and the goods should all be learned; accepted; it hurts yes, but we have to own up to it- it makes me disgracefully ashamed as does my skins light color because of the privileges that it brings me that I do not want! I am so sick of whites saying where is this privilege? …….. I’m just gonna leave this alone now and leave you with my video.
