Who’s Occupying The White House Hasn’t Changed Our Position

Until AMERICA makes right what is abhorrently wrong in it's treatment of Black Americans. I cannot get the least bit excited about a Presidential and Vice-Presidential Inauguration. We’ve passed this road before and our hopes and aspirations of a remedy have been dashed over and over again. Hell, we inaugurated a black president and still fell behind against whites in America. Now it looks as if we will soon fall behind illegal immigrants. The facts speak for themselves. We need not continue to avoid the truth. Take a look at The Contract With Black America because that is a start, just a start to initiating racial repair.

The Black Blogger & MLK Remember Dante Barksdale Hopes For Safe Streets In Baltimore

B'more, Chi-Town, Philly, Oaktown, H-Town, Big D, The Apple, The Queen Cities, Twin Cities, Richmond, Atlanta all these enclaves where potential black male talent is stuck down in the dawn of their existence by brothers of the same cloth​ and color. We need to implement the love of each other now more than ever. Yes, Dante Barksdale grew up in blighted urbanization that stifled his potential. The deprivation around him made him think that only street crime and violence was his only option. Yet, as he grew and looked around, Dante Barksdale saw the utter hopelessness of that choice. He sought to change the optics. He sought safe streets to build hope. Yet the hope Dante sought was bloodied by the hatred always seemingly around the next street corner, alleyway, or vestibule. Dante Barksdale caught a bullet and the streets are not much safer in Baltimore.

Just as King professed in this sermon on the love of your enemies. I may have questioned King’s love of the white bigots who's sole purpose is our race’s destruction. But the love of your black brothers is and should be a given.
No way would Dr. King had ever envisioned the scores of black bodies mounting and raising in our city morgues because of our black communities' hatred of each other. This sermon is just as relevant today as it was on that fall day November 17, 1957. We need to learn to love our enemie. Understand that our perceived enemies need never be anything more than our black brothers. We must look within ourselves for that redemption feeling and brotherly love. We are indeed and should be our black brother's keepers not our black brother’s killers.

Interview With Malcolm X January 18, 1965 Read Aloud

On January​ 18, 1965,​ a little more than a month before his murder at the Audubon Ballroom. Malcolm X gave an interview to the Young Socialist Alliance. In memory, 56 years after his death I will read the contents of that interview today on my blog, I hope you listen to my reading because what Brother Malcolm said in 1965 is still relevant today. We are still seeking outside of ourselves. The answers we seek are within our grasp. We simply have to understand the power that is God Given and can only be God Taken, we as a black community must understand that power and unite our forces for the struggle is real.

Provoked Thought On MLK Day In America

You can have both potential and experience but if you're black in America they will still shut your shit down. Black Folks seemingly need a high quality skin whitener or a melanin remover in America. Because, America indeed stacks the deck so strategically that a few of us black folks are allowed slip through the lid of the cracked barrel. However, the remaining crabs in the barrel although the same species constantly fight each other to get out but to no avail. You see we don't own the rules of the game nor are we given the directions to proceed. If any any event the rules are discovered by the human crabs, viola, America changes the rules and the barrel stays tightly shut again.

If you truly understand the history of MLK you wouldn't reference his August 28, 1963 as his greatest achievement. You see even Dr. King realized that dream he spoke of on 8/28/1963 had become a nightmare created by American policies both foreign and domestic. Dr. King’s highest moments were fighting the final fights during the last days of his life for sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee, and planning to converge in Washington DC with tens of thousands of the poorest of black Americans and demand that the financial check be paid for services rendered to the development of this nation by our ancestors and descendants. That is the MLK I will remember and I will not allow either the history books or the media outlets to homogenize the revolutionary voice of that man. Nor, should we allow our black communities to fall into the trap of minimizing that MLK’s final dream was black economic, environmental, and educational reparations. If we want to honor MLK on this or any other of his holiday celebrations it should center on keeping his final and greatest dream alive. Otherwise, you accept the false narrative that his dream in 1963 was the highlight of his revolutionary voice for absolute change. Knowing full well that his murder in Memphis on April 4, 1968 had nothing to do with that dream. His murder was all about MLK’s awakening to America’s awful truth.
