Black History They Want Forgotten- Video Introduction

Introduction video to a series of videos I’m making- these will be regarding Black history in terms of the founding of America and the building of all the crap so many whites claim to have accomplished – but didn’t. My goal is to spread awareness of TRUE knowledge; the tragic and good, and give acknowledgment to the history of those whom racist whites want people to forget or not know about.

Additionally, I want to expose the horrors that the White House and Washington DC did during these founding days, hidden by lies but now it’s time to expose with truth and proof. The evil shall be exposed, and the truth and those whom suffered shall be given the long overdue awareness racists try to hide… I want to note also these videos will include more than just physical matters… I hope I do this well; at least I know I am spreading truth and truthful knowledge is POWER!!

So proud and happy to repost this. Black History is every day; screw limiting it to one month. Screw limiting it to slavery and the civil rights movement. UHURU!

 

Video: Reading a Short and Relevant Essay by Tupac Shakur, 1992

Looking through some of Tupac’s writings I found this short essay he wrote…sadly I believe it to still be relevant today so I decided I’d read and share…

Black Poetry Writing Month: Write a Song for the Field Slaves

Now this is a good idea for a writing prompt or any form of art prompt really.

However, the thing is, this tragically still is happening right now just under a different name. Slavery and the exploiting labors that brought so much money in to the very White House and National Mall in Washington, D.C., wouldn’t be here if not for the souls whom were sold to the government to build at the cheapest of cheap price; which the Black man would not every get to see.

Most of what this country has is due to the men and women of this era yet we have one puny month to honor the history and culture of Blacks in America? When is “white history month” I hear people moan; every single month, every single day, you dumb ass! Seriously! Though we must never forget the horrors these men, women and children faced, we must also remember that even the month given to “Black history” is a sham. How many people can say they learned this tiny bit of information in school, even during “Black History Month”?

There is so much more to “Black History” than a couple of weeks cannot shove it all in, but they don’t even try! It’s Dr. King, slavery, civil rights.

Sadly, again, as I originally said…. the souls in this photo are being forced to do work for free; in America right now for something as stupid as a person caught with weed, or even more tragic is when the person goes to jail on mandatory; silence is heard. Here, where the Black population is highly and sickeningly overflowing (this and drugs all the way to Black on Black crime, can find root within the marked out lines of FOIA FBI papers where Hoover blatantly, even between the lines with no heart or shame, calls upon the American FBI to “divide and conquer the Black community”). The CIA admits its role in planting crack and guns into Black ghettos. What more evidence is needed?

Slavery? Racism? That doesn’t exist anymore, too many dismiss. I look at you and smile not; racism and slavery exists more than ever because it is hidden in plain sight.

Oh but wait; it isn’t over. The prison industry and the Private Prisons make this “free labor, slave labor” all obtainable again. BLACK MEN BUILT THE CAPITOL -check it out here on goodreads. This is the kinda history I want to know. What else are you trying to hide, America??

Architects, Engineers, Speak Out to Reveal Truth of 9/11 – Documentary

With 9/11 coming up, I am going to post the following video in hopes people will watch, listen and consider the evidence at hand. This video is not on government theory so much as structural and logical explanation of why the towers couldn’t have fallen based on what the mass media and government would have us believe. In this documentary experts in the fields of science, engineering and architecture will explain to you, in great detail, the reasons for the impossibilities in what has been told to us.  

“NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) claims they found no evidence for explosive demolition in the Twin Towers. Later, they admit that they never looked for it. How can you find what you are not looking for?… Architects, engineers, scientists, and many others looked for it, and it was not hard to find.” (See video below)

My Rant on Soda Related Deaths, Alcohol & The History of Marijuana/Hemp – & the Many Reasons It Should Be Legal.

I should be studying but I can’t help but have to post this really fast… I just saw a tweet pop up with an article discussing death related to drinking “sugary beverages” such as soda… And it made me think of weed, of course! First I would like to make note, I do not do drugs, but I am a firm believer in fighting for people who DO and giving them whatever it is they are lacking, or doing the best we can as a society, to help ensure people don’t have to turn to drugs to ease their pain. I know there are other reasons people use drugs, and I know there are always going to be users.

However, I believe the majority want better, just as I don’t believe dealers really enjoy their “job” and also need help. But I digress!

Point is, I don’t view weed as a drug and though I love soda, it upsets me that it can be legal, while weed, a multipurpose, good for all plant, can’t! Yes, there is a connection or a point somewhere coming up.

Let’s go back a bit. According to Harvard researchers, 25,000 people died from “sugary beverage drinking” in America back in 2010. Worldwide, it was 180,000 in 2010. An actual quote from the article states:

“The data presents new evidence on the public health hazard triggered by artificial drinks.”

And while I believe these “sugary beverages” killing people could also have to do with not only sugar, but I believe it probably also has something to do with the aspartame, aseselfam and artificial crap they pour in them as well. So it’s not solely the sugars fault, though researchers have linked to the drinks to being (and I quote) “directly responsible” for 133,000 diabetic deaths. Whether or not they had diabetes prior, I am not sure. In addition, “sugary drinks” were also found to have been”directly responsible” in the deaths of 44,000 people with cardiovascular disease, as well as 6,000 people who passed away with cancer.

Gallup has reported nearly half Americans (around 48%) drink at least one glass of soda a day, with an average amount being 2.6 glasses. (Um, how in the world do they get information regarding how often we drink and what it is we are pulling out of the fridge!? There’s something else for you to look into. It’s not a joke.) Due to the amount of daily intake as well as the high mortality rate from the “directly responsible” drinks, researchers at Harvard have now labeled drinking “sugary beverages” as a public health hazard.

“We know that sugar-sweetened beverages are linked to obesity, and that a large number of deaths are caused by obesity-related diseases. But until now, nobody had really put these pieces together,” Singh said while presenting the results of the study at the American Heart Association’s annual meeting in New Orleans.

In my home city of New York, Bloomberg has been trying to implement an intrusive city-wide ban any artificial drink in a container over 16 ounces. Here I would just like to say, if a person is over weight and wants to drink a soda or eat a cheeseburger, they should do just that. It shouldn’t matter if you drink soda or not to share this belief. It should scare everyone when the government begins to regulate the amount of food or drink we can have. It should scare us all because though food or drink bans may not impact you, but it is the start of more bans to come which WILL impact you. We should -and are- all be in this together. But back to my rant (I am almost done with the sugary drink department). Finally, researchers conclude with the following:
