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...

1. Stop caping, Stop cooning, Stop tap dancing, Stop catering and last but not least Stop falling head over heels for wypipo. Don't go out of your way to give them any remorse or sympathy. Time to practice apathy because one day, these same people who say they are not racist but keep the white power structure intact will have to decide if they want to ignore the problems of Black people or tip toe around Black issues while clinging on to their privilege. 2.

The creator of the documentary is a white Australian...

(AP Photo/stf)[/caption] I remember back in 98’, at only 9 years old I got my first taste of American politics.

"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...
