Stop the Violence!
Peace in the Streets!
#Black Lives Matter!
May this post find you in the best of spirits!
Please support or join the mighty Newark Anti-Violence Coalition (NAVC) organization! This is a grassroots anti-violence organization. It was founded on July 20th 2009, in reaction to the murder of Nakeisha Allen. She was a mother of two kids killed in the crossfire of a shooting on Elizabeth Avenue and Meeker Avenue in Newark, NJ. Ms. Allen was one of four victims of community violence in the city on that day. But three days later, the NAVC used civil disobedience to shutdown the intersection, by forming a circle to block traffic, to bring attention to the disease of community violence in the city of Newark. The NAVC would go on to shutdown intersections all over the city every Wednesday, for over five years straight. Now the NAVC continues that work of shutting down intersections, but the organization also organizes town hall meetings, forums, participates in mentorship, participates speaking engagements in detention centers, speaks against police violence, speaks against domestic violence, and offers support to victims of violence.
The sole purpose of the mighty Newark Anti-Violence Coalition (NAVC) is to inspire everyday people to help create progressive change in the city of Newark and to help to empower Black and Brown communities. Our leader is madam Chairwoman Keesha Eure!
To contact the NAVC, please call us at 908 605-NAVC.
Thank you in advance for all your support!

To fight racism, united is needed… In Chicago alone these 700+ deaths are the highest since 1998… But that doesn’t mean we should forget about slave patrols aka cops who kill. Check the article, the video if you wanna hear my thoughts and get involved… Every person matters…And nothing lasts forever, we can stop this.
Article follows video but first, the words my friend and bro, Bashir Akinyele, wrote about it..
DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER? I DO NOT THINK SO!
I am outrage to hear this heart breaking news! Chicago, Illinois is in a state of emergency! There have been over 701 murders in the city! Almost all the victims are people of color! If these victims were white, the entire country would stop to find a solution in Chicago right now! But the victims are black, no one seems to care!
Real talk, the Black and brown community is in bad shape! We must find a solution to this problem fast. Our people are dying a fast death to genocide!
Stop the shooting! Stop the Killing! Stop the Violence! Black Power! All Power to the People! Hotep! Peace in the Streets!

Murders here surpassed the 700 mark Thursday, a somber tally not seen since the drug wars of the 1990s as the police department continues reforms aimed at regaining public trust.
CHICAGO—Murders here surpassed the 700 mark Thursday, a somber tally not seen since the drug wars of the 1990s as the police department continues reforms aimed at regaining public trust.
Police say that 77 were killed in the month of November alone, which saw 316 shooting incidents and 389 victims. As of Dec. 1, 701 people had been murdered across Chicago, making this year the most violent since 1998.
Amid the spike, police…

“Human rights represent the right to be a human being. Whenever you are respected and recognized as a human being, your civil rights are automatic.” – Malcolm X, See Video
I admit I have been supporting protest and virtually any form of activism demanding the equal treatment for ALL Black men, women and children. I suppose I was hoping Black Lives Matter and all protests against the treatment would be enough to stop the hateful killings (and beatings, harassment, so forth) …maybe now that these murders have gone mainstream via social media the American Government! But it’s clear that won’t happen. Malcolm X explains what we all already know but need to know and put to use in the video that follows.
Any action is better than none. But I have lost virtually all hope in doing anything so long as the American government is unchanged. By taking this to a world level America will have to pay attention to its crimes; sad that they couldn’t have done it from simple morale; sad that it is even an issue.
I will continue with my research regarding the police, regarding racism, regarding any and all hate crimes being committed towards the Black community. I do this in hopes of exposing the truth, exposing lies and informing people of that which I hope will outrage enough to spark action.
What Malcolm X says in the video is, in almost 2017, still not only true but the only way change will come that I can see. I support the “Buy Black Economy” and I do so when able… But it sadly, as history and this brilliant mind reminds us, isn’t enough to obtain the deserved and rightful equal treatment that has for so long been denied to the Black community.
“We must be regarded as human, our human rights must be respected, before we can be regarded as citizens and our civil rights be respected.”
