Black History Month-Brief History & My Stance

“If a race has no history, it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated. ”

This post was a lot more in-depth than this, but after having it somehow 50% deleted, I figured I would repost the overall main point, and rant on other related issues on another post.

There are a few reasons I truly dislike Black History month. Until recently I had no idea how it was even founded, I’m ashamed to say.

Black men and women more than earned their place in American history books, both before 1776 and definitely after.

Black History happened in crucial ways, daily, and still they received no pay, no acknowledgement, no kindness or humane treatment. Fast forwarding to 2019 where we still are impacted by the actions of these men and women; one example being the White House and all of the surrounding district was built off of the backs -and brains- of Black men. (Info on this to be in an upcoming post)

Despite the impact and astonishing sacrifice, cruelties and inhumanity these people endured; despite what they did to build the structure desired by whites “in government”- there still has been not only no pay, but also no acknowledgement in public schools or by many others I can think of whom “teach history.”

(And yes, money payment is due. White people today; ok so you were not one of the enslavers… you are, however, reaping the benefits of an oppressive system merciful and preferring of whites; OPENLY, heartlessly. While, at the same time, trying to ensure your so called “place as victim” or playing the “denial card” … whatever way a white person goes if it is not in truth you are openly, knowingly allowing lies to be told, truth and history to be surprised and letting a community continue to struggle and suffer due to racism which is indeed very much, too much, alive in America. But I digress.)

And I haven’t even began on the ancient histories not often spoke of except in falsehood.

Such as, the history of truth which when we find in the amazing, breath taking ancient civilizations of Kemet/Egypt / African history. These people are the reason for everything we take for granted today from the 365 calendar to math and medicine and more. (More posts are to come soon on many, many things in respect to this as well!)

On to the point of this post, even though my last writing was far more informative I feel, I best get back on topic.

Though Black History month is not something I support, as noted I support an all year, truthful history, it began of noble means and the history is honorable.

I am ashamed to admit this is a piece of history I only recently learned.

The origins of what was a brave and wonderful proposal, especially in 1926, was created by Mr. Carter G. Woodson, along side the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History.

It was, at that time known as “Negro History Week” and was to be honored every year during the second week of February.

These weeks were not selected at random, instead planned as to include the birthdays of Frederick Douglass in the 14th as well as Abraham Lincoln on the 12th.

It was, of course, not met with much more than a rather lethargic response but it didn’t leave Carter disheartened; quiet the opposite.

It took relentless work and perseverance but it finally began to catch on, and finally, the ambition, and the hopes to share and honor Black History seemed to have succeeded.

It wasn’t until 1976 that American presidents began giving recognition to the cause, but after they acknowledged it as an issue of importance (no matter what the reason they really did it for) it became Black History month.

And so it was. Call me negative if desired but I am a realist; Black History month should not only be a year long study, additionally it should not be limited, as it is now, to slavery, segregation, the civil war, the Civil Rights Movement, riots, sit ins, and/or Dr. King.

Black History does not begin with slavery. With that in mind I hope you will go and do some real research on the truths being hidden from you…. or revisit this page at random to learn more truths they try so hard to hide, or even deny. Despite the proof & evidence to be shared…

Update: Site ACTIVE Once More- What’s to Come…

First, I apologize for my erratic, inconsistent posts and videos over the past year or so… I also thank all of you who have stayed around and still read despite my inconsistency. This is not how I like to work nor is it how I work under normal circumstances…  Anytime I returned it was out of true outrage and desire to share knowledge and express my views on the issue at hand…

I shouldn’t have stopped doing this daily, but that is what will be happening from here on out. I may miss a day or so here and there, but I have finally escaped the torment of personal demons, so to speak, and can finally once again dedicate more time to writing and making videos…

I have so many notes and plans I was going to start in the past but never did that I now will be able to use… So, for the interested here is what is upcoming 🙂

As noted, I will be posting daily (for the most part). Below are the goals and mission statement (more or less) of my work on this website and other related sites:

The first and foremost goal of this page is to expose truth that no one wants to look at, that gets over looked or is being used in deceitful ways to serve hate, bigotry and racism. The truths I focus primarily on as of now are police brutality, racism, the legal system, abuse of power and media deceit. NEW to this page will be the posting of history and positive truths… But more on this below. 

So… A quick brief ….african history george orwell quote.PNG

Be a voice for the unheard… I am extremely passionate and cannot hold my tongue very easily…

    1. I plan on continuing to share stories from the present and past; the past being former cases I worked on (racism and police brutality / police killings).

      Never forget*
      and these people all deserve to not only have their stories told but also to never be forgotten… Additionally, I want to look back at the cases and see where the abusers and murderers are now; I am willing to bet most if not all of the cops involved were not punished…Learning if they are still abusing people legally will be disgusting and interesting; but definitely something I believe will prove -as if more proof is needed- that the legal system is biased and favor law enforcement, despite the extreme detrimental impact it clearly has in the lives of those in the Black and brown communities.

      1. While I primarily focus on racism and police related issues, I will be writing on and sharing information regarding all unjust behavior regardless of the perpetrator. The prison system, laws and open racism are all forms of injustice I will also be speaking on.
    2.  Black History Month is a joke and an insult to history and to the ancestors who came before. Additionally, it teaches nothing except giving a brief overview of one aspect of Black history, as though slavery is where Black history begins, as if this is all there is when in fact this country so many claim to be patriotic to wouldn’t exist in the manner it does today if not for the Black community.  So I plan on creating another page that will be linked to this page sharing important historical achievements, devastation, achievements and truths buried way too deep- both good and bad- by the government and education system.
    3. Finally, I will be doing the same for African history. There are many reasons for this, including my personal passion and love of African history and culture… Despite the truths of the ancestors, this is not something well taught (if taught at all) and I feel it is important to share the knowledge I find… The reason for “Black History Month” and the denial of true history is summed up best by George Orwell:

      “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”

      I will probably reword this at another time for I am sure I can find better words… But as of now that is what is to come… Some of my posts will be videos, but I am not sure how I am going to go about that as of yet so… However, one thing I am also seriously considering is teaching history as noted above online via videos and/or via “classes” online.

      LET KNOWLEDGE DROP…and my father/mentor/inspiration speaks…

Digitizing American’s Sick History of Executions

It’s a great project idea; but it is also a heartbreaking and HIGHLY REVEALING project. Revealing racism towards not only adults, but children… It also, I hope, will bring attention to the problem we still have in America with this inhumane, cruel and unjust legal hate and racism.
I also wonder if they will the last (one of few) legal execution photos to be reveled? It’s an old photo, of a man who they electrocuted. It went very wrong and the photo shows this. After that photos of these executions no longer were allowed… Wonder why.

And my gods… this poor, beautiful child breaks my heart…. !!!!!

The mug shot of 14-year-old George Stinney (part of the M. Watt Espy Collection at UAlbany), the youngest person to be sentenced to death and executed in the United States following a racially-biased trial. For more than 40 years, Espy, an opponent of the death penalty, traced the often tragic history of legal executions in […]

Cali Lawmakers Working to Help Immigrants Statewide

This is a bit of hopeful news during a time of prejudice, racist hate-filled insanity by a person who is a danger and threat to any person. Something I think by now any humane person can clearly see. I hope Cali succeeds and may other states follow, until we have a real president.

Legislative Democrats in California have advanced a bill that would provide statewide sanctuary for immigrants by restricting local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

My Breakdown Watching Netflix Documentary 13

After watching the trailer, and proceeding inward to the documentary “13” I made this. I just don’t understand after everything I say, and everything I show, not just in this video but in all the information available…. No matter your background, facts are facts. And if you have a soul Black, Hispanic, white…this DOES matter.

I was watching just the trailer for the movie or documentary 13 on Netflix (now watching the full documentary) but there’s one scene that sparked a memory that I’ve never shared anybody really yet one that I refer to quite often in my videos. This is the story of the man Who will forever be a part of my soul the man that I saw suffocated by the police when I was about 14 an innocent, black man with narcolepsy suffocated… But it doesn’t stop there.

Back then I used to have a little hope. Hope that if everyone knew about this kind of stuff that I was working with on a national level every day -both public stories and confidential cases, NATIONALLY- I honestly believed that there would be a revolution of some form if these images were being displayed on TVs if the truth was put out there by the media. You must remember I was 14-ish at that time and did not realize the media and the government or one for profit media is never going to show you the truth and you shouldn’t have to have anyone say anything though. Just watching the imagery & just hearing the stories you should be able to make up your own mind and clearly see the obvious this would not be tolerated if it was happening to white people as a majority like it is to the Black community.

I understand my story does not have anything to do with prison per se. But it does have something to do with slavery and racism and the oversee year a.k.a. officer.

Charges Dropped Against Racist & Violent FireFighter-New Video

This is no shocking surprise. I’m speechless, for, the surprise is actual that no one cares and if they do, they aren’t willing to give up their comforts to do something for the greater good. Or perhaps it’s simply that none of us know what to do. 

One thing I know we all need to do, is unite. There’s  a start; educate and unite.

Article:

Charges were abruptly dropped against a Savannah, GA firefighter accused of threatening a black couple at gunpoint and telling them his badge entitled him to kill them with impunity.

The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that charges against Barry Arnold were inexplicably dropped in September after the government failed to prosecute. The couple who bore the brunt of Arnold’s drunken, racist meltdown want to know why.

In October of 2015, Marquist Curtis and his fiancée, Amber Phillips were eating dinner at a Savannah Applebee’s restaurant when they heard a drunken and agitated Arnold — who was voted 2014 Savannah Firefighter of the Year — use racist slurs against his server, a black woman.

Then, when he noted Curtis and Phillips, he began to direct his ire at them.

“He’s saying, ‘I got those black ass ribs just like those ni**ers,’” Curtis told the Beast. “He looked over at my fiancée and said ‘I can’t stand those ni**ers.’”

Who Am I to Speak on Racism?

Don’t believe racism is real? Look at Tamir Rice vs Jeremy Mardis, for an example. As I say in my video, if you cannot see this blatant racism in America you are CHOOSING to be blind.

After many messages I’m back and ready to start this channel, for real… This video is re: my skin color, my relationship with racism & why I speak on it and police brutality. Also a bit on why I’ve been gone. And then there’s a bit in here about the blatant impact of racism in the white community and within the government… Thank you to every single soul who has stood with me during hard times. Next video will be on the research reports I do and when I’ll be putting them out, in addition to other upcoming topics. Don’t

And with that, I’ll have a new one up soon. I’m back on it whether it matters or not. =)
