I don’t usually plead with you guys to listen but I am now. Not just to my video below, but to the ones from the Black male who is being targeted for speaking truth of all sorts; from being PROUD to be Black to history to metaphysics and ALL in between and all of it, is spoken in such a way that you he is not only exceptionally intelligent; but he also is not out to hurt people. He is here educating. Or trying. But he is being accused by someone called “Dr Maat” (a disgrace to the name MAAT and women) saying he threatened her in his videos yet… well watch the videos. No where, has he ever showed a gun, let alone, the machete she claims he used to threaten her life.
If we let people just slip into these racist hands we have no hope. Most of what I have to say or at least most of what I can utter out beneath this rage I feel…, I’ve posted below. Within the hour I will have another blog posted up and that one is far more important for that will be 2 or 3 of his videos, info on his situation as well as another revolutionary man speaking up on his behalf.
If you want to ask why I’m not posting more now, I want to and will, but first and annoyingly, I have a few things I must first do off line… But please, please do come back within the hour, check back please, listen to him as well… Unless you are sleep walking through life, you’ll see the truth right away.
So again; within the hour, a new post will be up with more info as well as including him speaking out on all this, as well as 1 other “OG”….
This man did not ask me or anyone to speak out for him. Again; for whatever dumb legal purpose; let me say once more a bit slower…
I am doing this on my own accord because what they are trying
to do to him needs to be on the lips of every person who
is fighting against racism against the Black community in particular.
If we don’t do something they’ll start killing off people in plain day light as they already do with so many other race related issues, and not only has this been going on FAR TOO DAMN LONG; it’s time tables change. I don’t promote violence; but I promote equality, I promote self defense and I demand change and that the people suffering are fuking heard! I won’t stop this life or the next til the RIGHTFUL people are in places of power AGAIN.
I am very furious… I’m scared also that you guys aren’t going to take all this as serious as it is… Same for Tony… We gotta do something yea; so let’s START for real… We been saying it, when we gonna do; when can we start PROTECTING life?!
Assata Shakur is a strong, beautiful Black woman that the media via the government make out to be a criminal; despite the fact that she is innocent. The reason she is so wanted by the government is because she is a Strong, Black Woman whom is not afraid to speak of truth, point out racism and inequalities, hate, unfair laws, and then work towards her goal, which overall has been the improvement of Black lives in America. They don’t want that. Also working against her innocence is that not only is Assata intelligent she also is not afraid to share or use what she knows. She is extremely articulate in addition to the rest; making her exactly the woman I think we need to lead us in educating and saving the innocent; in leading the fight for change and improvement in the Black, brown and poor communities. Sadly, all of her wonderful traits have made her a target for the government (both in the past and now). Please read the following post and links on her, share it with others, especially your kids… Expose the TRUTH about Assata Shakur; if we can’t get the American government to realize we will NOT sit back and watch them kill innocent people; nor will we sit here as prison’s fill up with drug offenders –mostly Black, CIA admitted to starting the drugs flow in the Black community-, imprison, steal from, accuse, lie about, give less treatment to or beat/harass.
Educate yourself or someone else; or simply honor her. She is a true and strong woman; I wish I could be half the activist and woman she is.
SOLIDARITY AND RESPECT! UHURU!!!
Just a quick post I felt I should share as it is for a person and cause I deeply support. Check out the link and come up with something amazing in honor of Angela Davis; a truly respectable hero and woman.
