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.”

And now, his article. PLEASE SHARE THIS EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT IN NEWARK!

Tony Soto Black Man & Activist Held on $900,000 for NO REASON! Please SHARE!

While I was preparing to re-post information on Tony Soto, I came across one of the last videos he posted on YouTube and oddly, it’s directed towards anyone who is struggling. He now -for NO REASON– sits behind bars on a $900,000 bond…  (For more videos by Tony Soto not included on his YouTube account or for more information, please see below.) I had to repost it and no matter if you aren’t religious, are like me and not religious but spiritual, or simply do not believe in anything; his good heart and character for others shines like he always has as a friend and activist…

And from my older posts… Or you can read it all on one page by clicking here.


“… We are asking for your help and support in this crowdfund to help him with his bond and to retain competent counsel.  Funded Justice specializes in Crowdfunding for legal matters.  Please donate and share this Crowdfunding. My son has stood on the front lines and helped many people, traveling all over the region assisting in other marches, protests and helping families organize and assert their First Amendment rights to redress their grievenaces and to protest outrageous and unjust actions by law enforcement.

His first son was born in his first son was born in his absence this past Sat June 25, 2016.  He has yet to see or hold his newborn and I am suffering with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  For the past two years my son has dilgently marched for civil rights and has tried to make sure people know their rights when pulled over in a vehicle. He has been outspoken and vocal in regards to the blatant police brutality and police corruption sweeping this nation.  Now he is being falsely held in a Phila prison.  If this had happened to any one of you, Tony would have already been organizing on your behalf immediately.  We thank you for your support. God Bless.”- Tony Soto’s mother

The sites I’m linking have the videos of the police stalking, harassment and mistreatment are posted in the above link which I posted a couple of days ago. So below are the links I’ve previously made when he was free, in order. Videos of importance are on all, one of them I believe I made a video but there is a link to his facebook video on there….

Each video shows not only the Philly police disrespecting him, but obviously targeting him, especially if you check out more of his videos (again that is linked in one of the posts too, I believe it’s the first). His  previous videos of harassment and fear tactics being used, each link is below.. thank you and please, please help this good man, his mom, those whom care for him and the community needs him, too…

Please, help. – Tony Soto’s Mother  (click here to donate)

Black Lives Matters- New Vid- Please don’t Give up

I apologize for the length, it’s bit of ‘personal’ video i guess, or how racism by cops has impacted me and still impacts me …. But it’s being said for a reason.

I’m ashamed to say that because of the ‘color’ and tone of my skin i am given a “pass go” card; i don’t want that shyt never have. But sadly that’s real. But that judgment they make right there on skin color proves racism against non-‘whites’ is -for lack of better words- STUPID, IMMATURE, SMALL MINDED BS. It’s NOT real nor true they just want people to think it is. Sadly too many do buy into mainstream media; my hope is though that some at least will open their eyes.
In this video I share the pain I’ve seen all my life, the pain that I still feel horrific grief over; and that’s Black children, family, friends, kids I worked with, etc,…. all sharing the same fear of COPS.
I end by asking anyone down to please hit me, I have an idea and work to prove it, I just need to find a group of real people to talk to… Please do…
