Harry Reid Blasts Donald Trump For Racism And Sexism Politicians are even living in fear of a Donald Trump presidency… Democratic Nevada Senator Harry Reid released an official statement regarding Trump’s election as the 45th president of the United States. The outgoing minority leader tore the bigot billionaire a new one in the controversial open…
My friend sent me a link that made me shed a tear. I was so moved by 8th grader Royce Mann’s delivery of “White Boy Privilege”. Even a child could see the injustice in our System, why can’t everyone else? Mann’s powerful words won him first place in the competition and I could see why, but could we see change on the rise?? We have to be the change we want to see, we have to take responsibility for our actions and shortcomings, then we have to put a plan in action and follow through on our words. Mann is a leader of the new school and the revolution will be televised. Click the link below to watch the video.
The question that’s weighing heavily on the minds of many is how to ignite change? How to be treated equally and have black lives actually matter. No praying, crying, rallying, killing or hating will ever give African Americans the respect they deserve. For black lives to matter, we must matter!
A few ways for black lives to matter are one, we must know our history and spiritual practices beyond slavery. I heard, “A nation without a past is a nation without a future.” Next we must practice self love and protect each other, if the system isn’t protecting us, then we must help we. No that’s not saying be the bully which we demise, but it’s saying stand up for what is right, stand together, they cant kill us all. They fear us for being dangerous, but our most dangerous muscle is the brain, let’s use our mind to fight back and use our bronze when necessary. Please sign my petition. We are trying to change the interaction between police and all civilians. Petition for change.
Now we get down to the real answers to open the gateway for change, we must control the black dollar!! We as a culture have the least amount of buying power yet we spend the most money. I can understand how Dame Dash once said that Jewish people call black people liquid money . We as a culture must stop spending money with a system that’s oppressing us. Lets start buying from black owned businesses, lets start banking with black banks and lets sacrifice some of the amenities we are used to having in order to invest in the black community. The more we sacrifice and invest in black owned companies, the more job opportunities and resources we create for ourselves. Once we can support ourselves, we will be able to not only receive the justice that is due but we will be able to rise again.
Just one thing to ponder, even though all races endure inequality and brutality, why is it happening to the black race at such high rates vs any other race in America? Do you think other races will continue to wake up and support a system that doesn’t support them? We must wake up, stand up and build our nation up.
