I was given an opportunity to be featured on the "Reality Gurus" Channel. I touch on what Pan-Afrikanism should look like, speaking from my experience as a community organizer. Pan-Afrikanism is what I practice daily in my community and not just social media. I also give some thoughts on the growing political movement ADOS (American Descendants of Slaves) as well. I've been a listener of Reality Gurus for several months already, so like, comment, share and subscribe. They deal with a wide range of topics dealing with Black...

I read this post a while back, Why People of Color Need Spaces Without White People. I thought it'd be crucial to reiterate and double down on the need for Black people of melanated Afrikan and descent to organize, collaborate and study together on a regular basis. It may look like I'm piggy backing off this article but I've spoken about the blueprint for these concepts when I first started my blog, in what feels like an ancient time. The Pan-Africanist at the most basic level. In my experience,...

Umar Johnson has reached a pivotal point on how his legacy will be written down in history books. There're only 3 possibilities when it comes to his long time, crowd funded FDMG (Frederick Douglas - Marcus Garvey) Academy for boys. He'll either succeed, fail or bamboozle us all. This is not a piece analyzing the viability of his school. This piece is a response to the announcement of the acquisition of the property. A lot of people, mainly his supporters are in high hopes that this will advance the liberation...

I don't live in Chicago and don't want to come off as some expert of the Windy City. However, I've been noticing recent rhetoric from plenty of people about the ongoing situation in Chicago. Rhetoric that's in the right place but I feel like it's a bit misguided because the complexity of the situation is not fully overstood. The biggest platform I've seen so far was Boyce Watkins channel, one of my favorite channels. There are old videos going around of wypipo imitating Black people to commit crimes with...

Audiences of wypipo would laugh and applaud inhumane hate for the descendants of the builders of civilisation. Black people would work behind the scenes in minstrel shows while white men would act a fool as both Black men and women with tar black “make-up” and red lipstick. Black people were then given the opportunity to...
