We Need to Realize the Dreams of Young Black Immigrants…

daca

****

“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.

In my opinion it is more vital now than ever for social action and unity… SO! Below you will find all the information you need regarding the 8th Annual Black is Back Rally, March & Conference starting November 4th.

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.
******
amber alert missing children in washington dc.pngForprofit media is -not surprisingly- giving no play to this issue happening in
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.

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.”

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.

 

And Introducing Part 2; Videos From the Young Black Male They are Trying to Bring Down; WRONGFULLY. Please Read & Share!

The following video he talks about the actual claims the lying “woman” is making against him. Sickening.

After you watch those two, go check out his page and look through his videos, listen to him teach… He is a brilliant man; he has confidence and is clearly someone who knows more than all of these racist idiots together… When I first started watching his videos and studying, I should have been able to tell right away these people wouldn’t want someone this special speaking to a platform of other people…

It’s so important we give him some kind of exposure or support, I believe. He has no business being taken to court, he is being put through BS for his intelligence, his stance and because he is a Black man. Period. And we gotta stop this; if it’s not the gun or a beating; or leaving people to die in a cell…now they are trying to get rid of leaders like Tony Soto who is in jail waiting to hear anything as I hope we can somehow find a way to raise that 900,000 bond… (see previous post for that information and story please).

Now they are doing it to this young man, and I know we all always are saying how wrong things are, how we need to do something; and we all know we do… So I ask; what? What is the next step? Do we get together and figure it out together online even; what can we do? There is no way we can let the government treat people like this… correction, CONTINUE to treat people like this.

Some will read this and think it’s all hopeless and give up. That’s the problem, or a huge part of it. Sigh. Well, I won’t give up. We can’t let innocence be slaughtered, stolen while freedom of speech (especially when that freedom of speech applies to truth!) is being treated as a capital punishment it would seem.
