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...

Black Family, Dating / 26.07.2017

First things first, I didn’t always believe in Black Love…… At an early age I fell victim to brainwashing, bombarded with eurocentric beauty standards growing up. This programming affected the way I approached non-black women compared to Dark skin women, when I grew older. I ended up convincing myself that all women are beautiful and color didn’t matter but that was a clever lie… In my mind, white women were always number 1 when it came to approaching and dating women. In my last committed relationship, I thought that...

Utopia from John Pilger on Vimeo. If you plan to watch on your mobile, the video automatically goes full screen when you press play. I've always heard Australia was the most racist country in the world. Before I watched this documentary, I had very little knowledge, so I never had an informed opinion. I never doubted that Australian whites were racist and this documentary showed me how open, blatant, delusional and comfortable they were about the treatment of the original inhabitants. The creator of the documentary is a white Australian...

It's been more then a month since it was exposed that a Jim Crow wench by the name of Carolyn Bryant admitted to lying about Emmett Till physically grabbing her. Her lies is what set off 2 cannibal hungry animals, to hunt an innocent boy down, torture, kill him and dump his body in the river. His face was so mutilated it was unrecognizable which lead to Emmett's dear mother to have a open casket so the WORLD could see what these monsters had done. We all knew...

(AP Photo/stf)[/caption] I remember back in 98’, at only 9 years old I got my first taste of American politics. It was CNN reporting of Bill Clinton’s infamous line “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” At 9, I learned the President of the “Free World" was at least accused of acting a fool in the...

"Now I have seen that some of you fear to go forward to fight for our King. If it were in the brave days of Osei Tutu, Okomfo Anokye, and Opolu Ware, leaders would not sit down to see their King taken away without firing a shot. No white man could have dared to speak to a leader of the Ashanti in the way the Governor spoke to you this morning. Is it true that the bravery of the Ashanti is no more? I cannot believe it. It cannot be! I must say this, if...

*Click on the pic to see the original Press release. With the wide range of subjects I write about, I have to continually remind my readers about the objective of a unified Africa. I'm continually reminded with the political education, organizing for our community I participate in, here in Toronto. Whether I post about police brutality, a book or movie, end of the day it's all about Liberation of Africa for the people. All the problems we are facing as a collective is related to the challenges Africa is facing....

I had the pleasure of reading "Class Struggle in Africa" by Kwame Nkrumah in the past several weeks. What struck me most about this ideological gigantic 87 page book is that even though it pertains to Africa, it can apply to any country that has been colonized. Some of the concepts of the book even applies to the western world. Take a look at how the "Occupy" movement organized the masses to protest systems set up and established by a powerful and wealthy minority. This movement just regurgitating some...
