Video Update: Tony Soto; Black Man, Activist, Father & Victim of Racism in PA Legal System

If you are not aware of my trying to raise awareness about Tony Soto, a Black man -father, son, activist,…- you can catch up by clicking here for some of my former posts on his case.

I am happy to say Tony has been…set semi free from the illegitimate, wrongful capture of a then father to be (he was unable to witness the birth of his only son). As if that moment stolen were not painful enough, he lost his beautiful and loving mother to stage 4 cancer while wrongfully locked up, with no hearings, no trial dates, a bond of $900,000.00…

Why? What happened? Why does *he* matter so much?
And, what is his status now?

The video below explains…I know it’s a bit lengthy, but this is very important; it is a man who has fought for other people life I am trying to update everyone on… So please excuse length…

And, the link I refer to also will explain anything you may have to ask also. Make sure you share that link; we need to raise funds to help this man…
Feel free to ask me anything, and I will try to get it answered.

 

From his site:
“UPDATE:  The crowdfund has been lowered from $10,000.00 to $7,500.00 because Tony’s fiance sold his motorcycle for $2500.00.

Video: Police Are Not Heroes To Me; They Are One Side of A Double Standard System

New York City Police Staff Sgt. Jimmy McNaughton died while serving in the

nyc tribeccamilitary and the story I just read of his family and other NYC cops complaining because the did not get their way has pissed me off. I will explain a bit below but first, the ultimate and main point of my posting this as well as my video rant is because  of the double standards cops hold…

What makes me the most angry, I think, is as you can read in the link that follows, his co-worker states,

“Jimmy’s a hero. He’s our hero. And generations of future police officers who entered the subway to go to work at Transit District 2 would know that his fellow officers did not forget him,” Kenny said.


… He is not my hero, and if we are going to be renaming streets after people who were stolen from the world too soon the first names should be of those whom were unjustly and out of racist hatred murdered. Those are the lives we need to remember. And I am sorry people think I am being too harsh but I am fed up with police getting away with any and all things as people bitch about how hard the legal killers have it… This is in my opinion a slap in the face to any and all who have lost their lives just by being ! 

No I know nothing of this cops personal history. That is not the point though I do address in the video.

So what happened for those wanting to know, in short:

His family almost 300 police officers in NYC are angry because their proposal to have a street named after him was denied, the father going so far as to state he believes they are cop haters… Right… He also demanded to know the real reason the denied the request… The reason? NYC signs have too many damn signs on street poles as it is!

Ugh. Click here to read the NY Post article on this and from which I cite….

Part 2- Video / Thoughts on Previous Documentary & CULTURE…

That is what we are missing; culture! Pride !

The other day I made a video regarding a documentary I was watching. The documentary was about racism and segregation in America; as well we the punishment placed upon the Black community when the government(s) finally “desegregated” –

Teachers, who had been more than such prior but also almost like mothers to their students, were ripped of their jobs. Cultural values and teachings began to fade for Black students as they were plunged in head first to history lessons that involved only white heroes, where the people who built this country with -no payment but a lot; far too much; suffering- never went paid for or acknowledged.

The passion the women in this video had for going to school is astonishing to me. Now a days you can’t get kids to go to school or value education even if you try with all you have. The connection is clear, but I want to explore it more.

But before that; here is last nights video. I hope you are all well!

I’ll Be Shopping At Target Now… Black Owned and Proud…

If there is one thing I am not, it is a ‘girly girl’ who enjoys make-up and …all that. I, of course, love eyeliner and mascara, but that isn’t just a look that is a representation of many different things depending on the day/mood…And it is also a tribute to past lives I have not forgotten; as well as a sign of gratitude and a promise to never forget the ancestors who would be so ashamed… We need change;… But I know as we fight forward we also need some positive topics, too, once and again…

And here we are! I think this is so awesome and I had no idea that Target had 1 let alone 22 products that are Black owned! Being a huge supporter of “Buy Black” I will make sure to check it out; and I hope you all will too…

#SOLIDARITY and also, nothing but love and well wishes for those involved ❤

 “In the last two years I’ve created countless lists featuring black-owned brands from plus size swimwear to skincare, but the response to these listings is always sort of so-so. Folks share the lists, but do they shop? I’m not so sure. Perhaps the reasoning for not Buying Black is due to accessibility. Most online based-businesses have a final sale policy, which can dissuade potential customers. Thankfully, Target is home to 22 Black-owned cosmetics brands, with new ones cropping up all the time. That’s right, now we have the option of buying Black right at our neighborhood Target stores, giving shoppers the option of easily returning products that may not work for them.

Check out this list of 22 Black-owned Beauty Brands sold at Target: ”

Video: The Racist Trump’s Removal of White Nationalist Groups Being Classified as Extremists

Let met start out with this: I have not been able to write or make videos lately, more so than usual… While this will change in the future, once life settles down a bit, the research and work I am doing now will aid in the fight against these racist, hate filled terrorist organizations…
At the very least, I come armed with truth and knowledge that is in fact extremely and abundantly obvious to those who truly seek wisdom; to those with even a careless soul in them. It takes a special sort of evil to even entertain the idea of removing these hate-filled racists; these true terrorists, from the federal effort to study and neutralize extreme nationalization. And everyone who has any decency within need be preparing and arming with knowledge, and sharing that knowledge. So, I shall. Starting back up with the following…………………

I write this in rage; rage and shock at the silence surrounding these blatant evil, racist pigs in office and their avid supporters. I am going to begin and end my post with the quote you will hear in more detail when you press play below. It is a quote in response to the Trump administration; this quote in particular being from the founder of some neo-nazi site called The Daily Stormer. I am more than outraged; more than ready for seeing these psychopaths be overrun.

And if the following doesn’t make your blood boil, I have to let you know… you are just as sadistic as the racist “Alt Right” as they want to be called, but more accurately known as America’s domestic terrorists; the white nationalists. Ironically, from the start of their jealous hate, these white “supremacists” have yet to be superior to anything.

I am MORE THAN sickened, and infuriated!!!!!! with the audacity of this psychopath to remove these evil, soulless, racist white criminals is absolutely asinine and outrageous. What’s equally as preposterous is the lack of attention all of this is receiving. Let me make this clear: I am aware these shells of people existed prior Trump getting into office…but they were, to some degree, ashamed or at least they understood to stay in THEIR place and pretend to be human. With Trump in office, what do these psychos have to lose?

That being said; if you are not against what Trump is doing for his people, proudly evil, white terrorists, then you are no better than them. Period.

Moving on to the point. Here is part of one response to Trump’s racist action. These white racists  (who murder, promote superiority, hate, death, etc) are no longer extremists, despite the fact that all domestic terrorist attacks and terrorists in America have been and are white; while people with a conscious, a soul, are murdered down by slave patrols or locked away as political prisoners for wanting equal treatment.

Hell, in too many cases this means dying for simply wanting to have the equal right of doing something as simple as eat skittles or hold a pokemon card without being murdered by one of the so called “protectors of peace”………..

The video has actual facts and the history behind what is going on, has been going on, and more. Please watch… It goes without saying, then, their hate organizations and their ‘people’ are celebrating in their natural hate and menace:

“Donald Trump wants to remove us from undue federal scrutiny by removing white supremacists from the definition of extremism……. Yes, DONALD TRUMP IS SETTING US FREE.

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY A SIGNAL OF FAVOR TO US.
We may truly under estimated Trump’s covert support of our cause, but after this proposal I am fully ready to offer myself in service to this glorious regime

Amazingly, my government no longer treats me as an enemy. It’s now officially understood at one of the highest levels, that we are so much better than the kidnapper, terrorist, pedophile left.” – Founder of Neo-Nazi Daily Stormer 

I end this here….Watch the video. Educate. They will NOT rise. Make sure you are a part of educating the people if nothing else. And again, for more information, I truly urge and plead with you to take a few minutes and make sure you are aware of yet another evil going on; thanks to the extremists in office.
Please; get involved… Edcuate yourself; educate others, at the very, very least… Fuck every last racist, white psychopath and their delusional thoughts of superiority; what a DISGUSTING and SAD JOKE they are!

We Need to Realize the Dreams of Young Black Immigrants…

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” – Emma Lazarus

 

They are Black! They Are Beautiful! And, they too have a dream!

The current tension over protecting the dreamers is merely an extension of an historical conflict between those in America who support the sentiments espoused on the base of the Statue of Liberty and those who want a country that fulfills the most egregious desire of White Supremacists, to purge the country of non-white residents on their road to fulfilling their vision of an all-White America.

Last week, the nation bore witness when the president dispelled all doubt about the racist ideology that undergirds the agenda of his white house. Trump allegedly demanded to know during a White House meeting on immigration, why he should accept immigrants from “shithole” (Black) countries like Haiti or Africa–I’m not sure if the president realizes Africa is not a country but a continent—rather than White countries like Norway.

This was not the first time the president put his full racist attitude on display. The country saw it throughout the 2016 presidential campaign and again and again since he took office.

The president’s apparent attitude toward people of color is not only telling but also threatening to the hundreds of thousands of dreamers at risk of deportation since he ended DACA last September. Although the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals blocked Trump’s efforts to stymie the DACA program last week, the ultimate fate of the dreamers remains uncertain.

Amid the discussions on the probable racist ideology permeating the white house and the president’s implementation of obvious racist immigration policies that have resulted to date, there are nearly 3.7 million Black immigrants who account for about 8.4 percent of all immigrants—many of them from the very countries the president recently disparaged.

According to a report by the Center for American Progress, among the largest groups of Black immigrants, 48 percent are from the Caribbean, 43 percent from various African countries, and 3.6 percent from South America. Black immigrants also make up 25 percent of at least five major metropolitan areas including Boston, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, and Seattle.

The president has also inferred that immigrants from countries like Norway are preferable. He never qualified that statement. However, if his preference is based on qualifications rather than race, we must assume he is unaware of the fact that Black immigrants have as high a rate of education and employment as any other group of immigrants.

For example, 29 percent of Black immigrants have a bachelor’s degree or higher compared to 30 percent from White nations, and at least 29 percent have some college or an associates degree compared to only 19 percent from other countries.

Another area where the president is ill informed is in regard to employment. The reality is that at least 73 percent of Black immigrants sixteen years of age and older are employed, compared to 67 percent of all immigrants and only 64 percent of those born in America.

Currently, there are about 11,000 Black immigrants under DACA protection, although the Migration Policy Institute has estimated there are 36,000 African immigrants eligible for the deferred action.

There are those who believe African Americans should not sit idly by on the issue of immigration. Make your voices heard on this issue. Call your congressman, attend a rally, raise your voice in this discussion.

As the president and his supporters continue to push their racist agenda, minorities can not afford to sit silent. We have learned from history—to be silent is to be complicit. We must speak out before silence morphs from complicity to something more sinister. As history has also taught us—silence, equals death.
