My Video Response to Black History & Fox News Own, Stacey Dash

I only agree with her in one way; that is, Black History month should be abolished. Why? BECAUSE THERE IS TOO MUCH BLACK HISTORY FOR 1 MONTH, A SHORT MONTH AT THAT; BECAUSE EVERY MONTH SHOULD BE BLACK HISTORY MONTH JUST AS EVERY MONTH IS WHITE HISTORY MONTH!foxnews

And when Black history month comes, it is never the truth we would learn; no. It was slavery, the civil rights movement or Dr. King. Never anything about Black history in Africa; the foundations of some of the most iconic buildings in D.C. including the White House (even though they had to be done under an extremely VILE situation). The wrongs and the goods should all be learned; accepted; it hurts yes, but we have to own up to it- it makes me disgracefully ashamed as does my skins light color because of the privileges that it brings me that I do not want! I am so sick of whites saying where is this privilege? …….. I’m just gonna leave this alone now and leave you with my video.

Mumia4-page-001Please, please check this out and spread the word!

He knows what he is talking about and no matter how bad things are looking his laugh and smile inspire hope and confidence. Please the most good hearted, intelligent, strong minded and INNOCENT men they’ve taken.

Assata Shakur iz not a Terrorist, She iz Us; Sign tha Petitionz

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!!!

Let’s Ensure Bloomberg Hears From Us, NYC, re: Community Safety Act

With the below, let’s make sure Bloomberg hears from ALL of us, the people of New York City. Those of us who don’t have protection, money and the, “power” he does. –

Council Members Call for Bloomberg to Listen to New Yorkers on NYPD Bills

Letter requests same “opportunity for public comment” that mayor usually holds before deciding to sign or veto legislation
July 18, 2013

NEW YORK, NY

Today, Council Members Jumaane D. Williams, Brad Lander, Robert Jackson, Fernando Cabrera, Rosie Mendez, and Melissa Mark-Viverito called on Mayor Bloomberg to hold a hearing for public comment on the recently passed Community Safety Act. The Council Members highlighted the importance of a public hearing, particularly in light of recent nationwide discussions and protests focused on the need to ban profiling.

It has been common practice under the Bloomberg administration to hold such hearings, so that New Yorkers can speak directly to the mayor about their support or opposition to legislation.

“Too often in debates like these, policymakers from some of the city’s wealthier and safer neighborhoods decide what is best for low-income communities and communities of color without actually listening to the members of those communities.
We hope you will allow New Yorkers to give you their thoughts directly, for or against the legislation, before you decide whether to sign or veto it.”

The Community Safety Act passed the City Council in June by a supermajority, following extensive hearings before the City Council’s Public Safety, Civil Rights, and Oversight and Investigations Committees. The bill was improved by input from elected officials, law enforcement, and other members of the public.

Passage of the legislation marks the culmination of years of advocacy and community organizing by New York’s civil rights movement, including 2012 march, in which tens of thousands of New Yorkers marched against the NYPD’s stop, question, and frisk policy.
