When Will Black America Shoot Back?
May is mental health awareness month in the United States, but in reality, one group has been under attack for their basic freedoms since the 1800s. Black America is under attack as they are now the fourth living generation of African descendants of the transatlantic slave trade to deal with a version of mental enslavement. They still remain the only active race inside America whose origin story looks and sounds like the beginning of the popular animated film, Encanto. A group of people running for their life. The system of power in America is built against this specific group.
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO OUR CAUSE
My man Martin. He was the definition of “powerful” as it pertains to whipping up Black votes and stirring up some GOOD TROUBLE back in his time, and as he said in that candid speech on that faithful day in Washington D.C. on August 28th, 1963, I Have A Dream. It might as well have been his John Hancock on the bill Lyndon Johnson signed into law, The Civil Rights Act of 1964, because it was all of his hard work, organizing power, and efforts, to which the FBI assassinated him for. I feel like I’m a part of Martin’s dream. I see myself as a bit of Chairmen’s Fred Black Panther Party and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference members. I use my voice for change, for good trouble, maybe sometimes a little too much trouble, but speaking truth to power in 2022 feels like my man Martin….never even existed. I mean, what kind of crap are we even talking about right now, ACCESS TO VOTING RIGHTS!??! Cue my girl Stacey Abrams. She has been this generation’s version of Dr. King’s public fight to demand Black access to the southern ballots. I do tons of history about America, in my pursuits of understanding and educating Black America. I really am not sure which tribe I come from but here, we don’t even have time to go back to learn, to hear the stories of our truth, to find whatever it was that was stolen from Africans who were brought to America through slave migration because we are still fighting to be free. Y’all know we just got Juneteenth in 2021 right. Lincoln has been dead for decades.
Caribbean Americans For Police Reform Now
This land is your land, this land is my land…. unless a racist from Anytown U.S.A. thinks otherwise. Are we going to sit here and pretend that white folks didn’t try to take away legal votes from Black people in Georgia? Modus operandi resulting in an insurrection against the Senators on the House floor set to make those same Black voices…I mean votes legitimized. If there was ever a terrorist group in America, it is these new-age anarchists’. An anarchist does not believe in governmental authority and generally disregards its overreaching power related to an individual’s right. They are the biggest threat to our national security, and we could even argue internationally as well, as many of the Qanon believers have high-security clearances – like military level clearance, plus training. Some of them are U.S. representatives, ran their campaigns on Qanon beliefs and keywords – and still won. Are you afraid yet?
