“…white supremacy is upheld by those of us in the professions; those of us who would even decry white supremacy and say I certainly don’t agree with…..BUT DON’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.” – Rev. David Billings (see video)
If ever there was a time to make note of a very important social event… And this
occurs on the upcoming 4th and 5th of November… Black is Back Rally, march and conference in Washington, D.C., has arrived for the 8th year! If you think this is a year to skip out on, I ask you to please reconsider… Things have been escalating for for hundreds of years, but as we clearly see, things are getting even more increasingly out of control regarding hate crimes, racism and this government. So, any glimmer of hope a select few may have believed in should be more than clearly gone now (if it were ever even there.)
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.

As a Latina with disgustingly, annoyingly, FRUSTRATINGLY, white skin I only wish I could trade in, I was glad to see there are other light / white skinned people in the Hispanic community who think along the same lines. Sadly, of course white privilege is given to hispanics of light or white skin. I don’t want it! But before I post my video, let me start this by saying what you best already know:
I WOULD GIVE UP THIS SICK ‘PRIVILEGE’ IN A HEARTBEAT IF I COULD!!! I do not see it as a good thing; until ALL of us have it, NONE of us should have it! The light/white skin tone of mine is the misfortune of my existence. But I do pose a question which is below the following video…
What fellow light / white skinned Hispanics feel about this curse of a ‘privilege.’ So… Do you deny it exists; do you abuse it like too many ‘caucasian’ people?
Whether you want to accept it or not; white privilege is real. White supremacy is a lie as “whites” does not mean a person is better than any other person; skin color alone does not mean any more than the size shoe you wear. Sadly, however, it is still an ongoing issue in racist America; built on lies and evil cruelty, still going forward with those same ‘ideals’ trying to brain wash as many as possible.
NEVER FORGET THIS TRUTH: being of European or Irish or whatever descent does NOT mean they are better. That is a force fed lie and it’s time we blow it out of the water with education on real history and culture; on what they tried to erase after stealing from the people there, too.
Admitting it exists leaves a sickening taste in your mouth to speak it, I know, but speaking it and being aware that it is going on and it is not okay! That you CAN do something, even if it won’t remove the unjustified and selective “privileges” given without any logical, emotional, intelligent, understandable, rational reason, at least you can take pride in knowing you are doing your part.
It’s time -far past time- the hispanic and the Black community unite fully and fully. No, I’m not limiting the unification to only us but it just seems like a natural and normal starting place once the communities of our own stop killing… Any and all colors or races should join in on this 100% acceptance and intolerance towards racists. I hope to see this come true one day; even if it isn’t all, I hope the majority….
Though I am also going to put this up on the side of my page, I feel this is worth making a post as well… First let’s remember that since 2016 with Trump and his hate inspired, biased speeches and campaigns, it should come as no surprise that hate-groups, hate organizations and activity have grown, also.
As the following site (where you can report your hate crime) states:
The Voice/Black Voice News is fully committed to tackling the uneven documentation of hate crimes and hate speech by partnering with New America Media (http://newamericamedia.org/), a leader in promoting the work of ethnic media organizations.
New America Media’s Documenting Hate Project is spearheaded by the not-for-profit news outlet ProPublica (www.propublica.org/). Despite tracking efforts by organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), according to ProPublica, “. . . there’s no reliable data on the nature or prevalence of the violence.”
There has been an alarming increase in reports of hate incidents nationwide since the 2016 election. Such reports range from vandalism and hate-fueled graffiti (as experienced in San Jacinto last week), to physical attacks and shootings.
Currently, there is heightened fear and anxiety in immigrant and minority communities, fueled in part by 2016 campaign rhetoric, in addition to some statements and policies from the current administration. Despite fear, it is vital to have a course of action when such incidents occur.
The number of hate related incidents reported in 2016 was unprecedented. SPLC noted such crimes increased by three percent over 2015, to a total of 917. The organization’s annual hate map (www.splcenter.org/hate-map) lists groups and organizations that target people based on race, religion, or sexual orientation. Also, according to SPLC, in 2016, the nation experienced its second straight year over year increase in the number of hate groups.
Sadly I have either heard of or know people who have been or are victimized by hate since Trump came into the position he is. It’s as though he made all the hate filled and biased bigots come out proudly, knowing they could hide under his terrifying hateful wing, so to speak.

Finally, people are speaking the truth many of us who aren’t asleep knew from the moment that psycho decided he should be any form of government official. We are citizens of America right? Answer me this, then. As “Americans” is it not too much to do exactly what they say we are to do if this ever happens; this being a racist, sexist, fat, orange psychopathic tyrant.
I am ashamed to say I am American, I’ve been since I was 14 and saw how cops have a badge to kill innocent people; especially if those people are not white, and then walk away from the crime with the same bloody guns in their slimy, blood stained hands. If you’re not American and reading this, please know this government does NOT represent ALL of the people! I must post this because I’ve got a busy schedule however I also have announcements to share that will be propelling this site and new sites as well as upcoming events and talks, among other things. I have been away for far too long but it was worth it… My seeking, studying, and continuously searching the vast REAL knowledge most Americans are never taught and too many do not even want to hear and growing my spiritual connection by the blessings of our Afrikan Ancestors;…all of this has made me stronger in all regards and my purpose -though it was already known- will now be fulfilled. And that means my changing in ways that only hurt my purposes; one being, sharing knowledge.
More on that really soon. For now, here is what we all need to be using the government of America’s founding documents to rid ourselves from the police state and truancy of Trump. It DOES matter. We are going backwards; say what you will of President Obama, but he never tried to reverse American progress, well being or health care. He was harassed with hate and racism as his precious little princesses did/do. But President Obama, being a man with integrity and maturity -not to mention stable mind- didn’t go off the handle, even though he would have had more legit reason to be angry at the media and others for he had horrible comments and lies being spoken.
He let his actions speak. No one has to agree with the sickness of Syria and other countries; but as a whole… you can simply look at Obama in the eyes and then look into the eyes of Donald Trump…And the person whom is a man of value and an actual man.
While I’ll leave out -for now- what words I’d use to explain what Donald Trump is, I’ll start an upcoming posts topic by adding;
“…the person whom is a man of value and an actual man. Most people will know that I mean, of course, the missed President, Barack Obama. Trump is honestly a sorry and pathetic excuse and misrepresentation of what it means to be a “man.” He also is a horrific and a vile, disgusting, delirious joke of humans as a whole.
Trump has had his ‘power’ if you wanna call it that; but now it’s a position within the government… To support him is to support those he also has -or tries to have- in office… All whom are women haters, racist whites with lazy European ancestors who did not build Amerikkka, but sat and got fat while treating men, women and children of legal enslavement, abuses spoken and unspoken, violence and fear unknown…
Trump with Sessions and Pence alone are walking images of the overseers, of the legal/government officials that were hunting down, murdering, abusing, misusing, brain washing, stealing and raping Black human beings. Not forgetting, these Black men AND women are why we have the most iconic sites in America; not just Washington DC; not just the white house, but ALL OVER America. And they did it to stay alive.
How things are regarding cops, prison, school, jobs, community, life or death for being alive; life or death being a risk if you dare do something as simple as go for a walk to get skittles or if you have a Pokemon card in your 12 year old hand. (Former case)
More writing with citations soon. Take action; and if you have any action that needs a volunteer; please let me know.

Not surprising I’m sad to say. Fox News is not a news channel; it is an entertainment channel, it competes for ratings against other “news” channels like CNN, and CNN is but a little better for at least they don’t go to the extremities of Fox shows like Bill O’Riely (I don’t care if I spell that right or not so…) or fire their reporters and THEN take them to court for not wanting to lie about the topic of their assignment. People who watch Fox News are terrifying, I hope people will start doing independent research, or at the very least, watch/read facts and then make their own opinion, not take the opinion of these “reporters” and claim them as factual and their own.
Anyone aware and awake has known for along time that Fox is not only an extremely racist, sexist, biased channel. This can be seen in how they portray Black people in particular; even victims…even children. Though most for profit media outlets do the same, Fox News takes it an extra step in how they speak of the Black and Hispanic community, on the struggle for equal rights, immigration of “illegal” immigrants… Oh, and not to mention how they speak of Islam and Muslims (which is anyone who “looks” like they are a Muslim; so, everyone in the middle east is automatically a terrorist.
The government controls the media; it was made public in 1977. At that time they declared they would stop. HA! If you believe that,… I’m speechless towards you.
Another victim of racism has joined in on a lawsuit two others had already began. This is not an isolated issue; this is how the corporation in general views anyone who isn’t a white man. If this is dismissed or if they don’t get some form of compensation or whatever they seek for this, I hope there is an uprising in America regarding rights of non-whites being ignored, in cases of all sorts….
NEW YORK (AP) — A third Fox News Channel employee has joined two colleagues in their lawsuit that says they were subjected to racial discrimination by a since-fired executive. Monica Douglas said former controller Judith Slater, who was fired on Feb. 28, frequently expressed an unwillingness to be near black people. Douglas is black, as…
This is for any one whom reads this or comes across and doesn’t know what white privilege is; here is a great video to explain it. If you are white, and don’t believe you have a ‘privilege’ but you want to know what we are all talking about please check this out.
I’m not sure if you Fox News watchers are aware of this or not, but Fox News and all media for that matter but Fox News in particular as they took the issue of lying to the public via the media to court- and won that right-.. it is LEGAL for these “news” channels to lie to you, to deceive you.
With that said, the first video is with a host whom I adore, Thom Hartmann, probably one of the only white men I’ve seen who can handle that racism is going on still, and correctly from the days of slavery being its roots. In this first video, he uses Bill O Riely as an example but then works his way out to any white American who more likely than not do not understand what white privilege is, or that they have it.
It’s your responsibility as a HUMAN to watch this, white people. Make sure you are not abusing your whiteness, for if you ask me having light skin is a curse. I don’t want a ‘gift’ or ‘privilege’ if others can’t have it…but sadly I can’t rid myself of my skin.
Inform yourself and make sure you are not contributing to a problem you may even think you are helping, or perhaps you think ‘doesn’t exist’- either way… I challenge you to realize, sadly, white people, especially males, have it far easier in America… Yes we know whites are victims of the police at times too; but not at the rate the Black community is. The FBI set it up this way, under Hoover, whom wanted to divide and conquer with guns and drugs… Slave patrols became modern day police, just a new name, not a real change in anything. So while white people may undergo police abuse or shootings some, it is no where close to that of Black Americans and they need to get over it.
The second video is shorter but with not as detailed, so to speak. Still, powerful and informative and definitely a video I hope anyone wanting to gain insight into themselves should see.
He is talking during the Zimmerman trial, talks about white privilege, using two tragic and real statements from President Obama as prime examples of exactly what white privilege is.
