upcoming-Malcolm X Remembered at Real Talk Thursdays-2/23/17-NEWARK NJ!

malcolm-x-newark-black-and-hispanic-familiesThis week in Newark, NJ, there is a free, weekly, on-going, open to anyone group called REAL TALK THURSDAYS meeting up as done every Thursday, for an hour, to discuss matters of importance but not typically discussed. This weeks meeting will be the beautiful soul and man, Malcolm X & his importance to the Black Liberation Movement.

When I return back home I will be attending religiously; however for the time I am EXTREMELY sad –especially this week!!!- that I will be missing out on this weeks discussion. Malcolm X is a man I love and am very passionate about; he is a person history must not forget yet he is a person I don’t recall ever being in a text book in school.

This is an wonderful opportunity for the community to get together and shed the chains of racism and lies; to build unity within the community! Having these educational, intellectual conversation with others within the community leads to RE-education. RE-educate the mind, share your knowledge, discuss and learn more knowledge for yourself…Gain self love and empowerment for, this is key to building a stronger community and a stronger community is key to freedom...

Want to attend? Read the post below written by Bashir Akinyele, one of the chairmen of this much needed, finally REAL, place to go to discuss issues and topics that MATTER but are all too often “left out” or “forgotten”… Bashir Akinyele says of REAL TALK THURSDAYS:

“This program is an opportunity to discuss solutions to the problems affecting African Americans, Latino Americans, people of color, women, the youth, and humanity.”

Demand President Obama’s Word & Nomination of Neil Grouch Honored

From time to time I post a petition, reason being some may not think they work however they do. Rather, they can. I’ve seen it happen on legal levels to more minor levels. So defend-the-court-180please, sign and share. Posting from email received; to sign takes literally 5 seconds if you are a slow typist. I don’t care if you like President Obama or not. If you’re out there toting your patriotic crap, you should respect the process that currently is being denied.

If you are a normal, good person; you should just want the right thing especially under an administration as scary and dangerous as this.

Our racist, misogynistic,fascist president has nominated Neil Gorsuch to fill Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court seat – the same seat Senate Republicans stole from President Barack Obama.

Trump promised to nominate someone ready to follow in Scalia’s extremist footsteps and he’s delivered on that promise. Gorsuch’s extreme record could guarantee another generation under a conservative Supreme Court that wages war on women, workers, poor people, voting rights and the environment while giving unprecedented power to corporations and religious extremists.

Progressive champion Sen. Jeff Merkley has promised to use the filibuster to force Senate Republicans to get 60 votes to confirm Gorsuch. We need to make sure Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Schumer and every other Senate Democrat stand with Sen. Merkley and use their power to stand up for women, LGBTQ people, immigrants, Muslims, people of color, workers, the environment and the bedrock principles of our democracy.

Tell Leader Schumer and all Senate Democrats: Block any Supreme Court nominee who won’t stand up for progressive values and the people most threatened by Trump’s dangerous agenda.

In Newark Black History Month Committee Sponsors “Real Talk Thursdays”

This is AMAZING news! I hope to see more of this nationwide. Black history is not just slavery and the civil rights movement; and then I’ve heard white people complain they don’t get a special month… UMMM, they have 11 of 12 months!? My gods that makes me VERY furious, to say the LEAST. And if only a month; they should be at LEAST sharing more than slavery and the civil rights movement; the Black community, the Hispanic community, both INDEPENDENT of the other have more history than school students ever get taught, never at school! What’s worse is Black lives were the first to walk this earth… Africa IS our motherland, ALL… Why do you disrespect what you ar16402886_10208623961578893_6232878237637317772_o-2.jpge or what you once were, or just facts, to be put even more basic for you??

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.

This Weekend in Newark, NJ… *Knowledge*

There are countless issues I’m working on; including a video regarding police research I feel is vital for everyone to hear… But I also support giving the children in Newark, NJ, the best possible teachers, educators and chance possible. Newark, NJ, I consider my second home, second only to NYC. Newark needs blessings; the children need the best possible educators… Honoring them is the least we can do for the kids I think ❤

And in Irvington, NJ, this weekend a celebration of Black history is going on at the local library… Check it out; get involved and learn TRUTH!!!!

Kobe Bryant Now a Business Man & Million Dollar Investor & an INSPIRATION. 

I’m a basketball fan but not much for Kobe; however I respect what he is doing!! Inspiring; though he has the money to start where he is, ANY ONE can do it with hard work and passion… Never settle for less, REBUILD Black Wall Street!!! 

Retired basketball sensation Kobe Bryant is doing something commendable with his retirement time and resources. Over the past three years, the star has been building a $100 million venture capital fund. Speaking on Monday, he said investing is one of the things he’s been very passionate about, and that’s why he made a decision to pursue it.”  

The 38-year-old former shooting guard co-founded the fund, Bryant Stibel, in 2013 with the current vice chairman of Dun & Bradstreet, Jeff Stibel.

According to Stibel, they opted to wait so that the initiative could only be unveiled if had been given a strong foundation.

We wanted our body of work, and the entrepreneurs and companies, to stand for themselves,” Stibel told CNNMoney. “We wanted to prove that this was something that had substance and depth.” 

He’s planning to invest in different fields, including technology, media and data companies, especially those that lean towards sports and wellness.

Black Panther Party & the KKK….

I am sure I am way behind in this but I’ve only lately found out that about a website /  app Quora where people ask questions and you give your answer. I figure since someone actually asked such an insane question, others may wonder the same… So here is my answer to the following question:

 

Are Black Panther members just as racist as KKK members?

            My reply:

Sigh. No. Where would you get this idea? Let’s compare the Black Panther Party’s 10 point plan with that of the KKK. If you read books on former panthers or by former panthers what are they teaching? Last question before I get back to answering is, how much do you know about the Black Panthers; how could anyone put them on a level as low as the KKK… Then again, if you are truly asking… This should clear it up but let me remind you, this is only one piece I’m pulling out of an entire group of reasons why the KKK is hate and the BPP was not.

After I post these two you shouldn’t need my writing but I’m going to do it anyway lol. So, we look at

the BPP 10 point program. This is what they wanted; they wanted nothing unreasonable.

What we have is the Black Panthers wanting a bit of peace, safety and equality; and the KKK wanting unwarranted superiority and power, meaning they had to have a the Black community to slaughter, use as a scare tactic, and spread lies, such as the panthers were racist as the klan. The Panthers wanted what the most basic white person had; they weren’t out for blood, that’s what makes the panthers NOT racist. One of many things. The KKK wanted nothing but blood and power. But I digress and speak on that more later.

The Panthers do not mention hate, death wishes or superiority over others though some like myself would argue they should. They never were paid for building the Capitol, the White house, the entire South; America as we know it! And still they humbly and kindly ask for basic human rights.

BPP 10 point

1)FREEDOM.

2) FULL EMPLOYMENT FOR BLACK PEOPLE.

3) AND END TO THE ROBBERY BY WHITE MAN IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY.

4)THEY WANTED DECENT HOUSING THAT WAS ACCEPTABLE FOR HUMAN BEINGS.

5) THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY WANTED EDUCATION WHICH SPEAKS TRUE HISTORY OF BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICAN SOCIETY AND THEY WANTED TO EDUCATE BLACK PEOPLE TO EXPOSE TH TRUE NATURE OF THIS ‘DECADENT AMERICAN SOCIETY’.

6) THEY WANTED THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT TO EXEMPT BLACK MEN FROM THE MILITARY.

7) SADLY, THEY ALSO WANTED WHAT MOST OF US NOW WANT AND THAT IS AN END TO POLICE BRUTALITY AND THE MURDER OF BLACK PEOPLE.

8) FREEDOM FOR ALL BLACK MEN HELD IN FEDERAL, STATE COUNTY AND CITY PRISONS AND JAILS.

9) FOR ALL BLACK PEOPLE, WHEN BROUGHT TO TRIAL, TO BE TRIED IN A COURT BY A JURY OF THEIR PEER GROUP OR PEOPLE FROM THEIR BLACK COMMUNITIES *AS DEFINED IN THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES!* (STILL A PROBLEM; ALL OF THIS BUT I DIGRESS)

10) AND FINALLY, THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY WANTED LAND, BREAD, HOUSING, EDUCATION, CLOTHING, JUSTICE AND PEACE, AND AS THEY WERE A “MAJOR POLITICAL OBJECTIVE” FOR AMERICA, THEY VERY INTELLIGENTLY WANTED A UNITED NATIONS SUPERVISED PLEBISCITE.

KKK

There is not one ounce of hate of hate in the Panthers plan, mind you, nor was there any talk of killing except in self defense which I support.

Now we go to the KKK. This is evil racism and hate. We could start at their racist hypocrisy and note the bombing of a church, after they had just come from church. This bombing killing 4 little girls inside. They bombed schools, churches, houses,… Lynchings still were used as a means to try and terrorize; hell, look at Emmet Till! J Edgar Hoover was the most twisted individual in the FBI and rejected any and all efforts to prosecute or punish any KKK member or racist for that matter. He stated he believed in Alabama the men wouldn’t be convicted, and, he was right as 5 years later there were no charges and the FBI closed the case.

Again that is just ONE. That is just one during this PERIOD.

This was by far not the sole act of violence, that research is easy enough to find, and it is too sick for me to waste my time on. So, I’ll leave it with this. Their belief system has always been purge and murder any non-white. Now it has extended to homosexuals, etc. On their page, they state the following after writing a long bit on their deep and clear hatred.

“We’re often asked if there will be a race war in America’s future. Our answer to this question is “yes”. What most people don’t realize is there are racial battles breaking out all across America right now. These racial battles are going to lead us into an all out race war. As the non-white race population is growing the White population is decreasing.”

So in a round about way we are told on their page numerous times by the support of their past actions of horrendous murders of Black people and their belief that still it should be a white only country, they are admitting they would go to arms to kill again, if they haven’t already.

All the Black Panthers wanted was freedom and a chance.

And someone has the nerve to say they were racist? Why weren’t they racist is a better question! For they weren’t; and they had reason. Many whites, especially the KKK, are racist, with NO damn reason to be. It’s beyond sickening and to the person who wrote below that you can’t have different levels of racism, um, yes you can.

So in closing! :

THE BLACK PANTHERS WERE NEVER RACIST; IT WAS MADE ABOUT RACE BY THE WHITE GOVERNMENT AND WHITE PEOPLE, SO THEY HAD TO MENTION THEIR RACE FOR THEY WERE AND ARE BEING TARGETED; STILL IN MENTIONING; NO HATE WAS SPOKEN, ONLY A PLEA FOR BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS.

WHILE THE KKK ON THE OTHER HAND DOES NOTHING BUT SPREAD HATRED, DEATH THREATS, SMILES DURING LYNCHINGS AND PREACH SICK, PSYCHOPATHIC LIES OF RACIAL HATRED.

Here are some of their photos. Just ya know, to compare the moral of these “people” vs anyone else who actually has a soul and/or mind.

This is sheer EVIL!= This is racism. Wanting Equality as the BPP did, is NOT racism.

The KKK. Racist, Hate Filled, Paranoid, sick lazy assholes.
