Blackout Monday 9-26-2016…

tumblr_static_tumblr_static_dzlauu7thdwg8k840sowwskck_640Today is September 26 and it is a blackout day. It’s not a race thing. It’s a justice thing.

The call to action by the former Grays Anatomy actor Isaiah Washington came up with a powerful way to protest police brutality in this country is by urging black people to stay at home from work on today as part of a Black Lives Matter “boycott” work protest.

No School, No work, No shopping!

Of course the protest and show of solidarity has been met with criticism, since race relations and the issues with police brutality are as heated as ever, which is why such action should be taken as a tool to rally against America’s very broken system.

Isaiah Washington posted on his Facebook page:

Imagine if every single African American in the United States that was really fed up with being angry, sad and disgusted, would pick ONE DAY to simply ‘stay at home’ from every single job, work site, sports arena and government office in the United States of America. I’m very sure that within 72 hours from Wall Street to the NFL…Black Lives Would Matter. September 26, 2016 is THE DAY. #ItsTime #CanWeDoIt? #ACallToAction #StayAtHomeSeptember262016 #RIPTerenceCrutcher #HandsUpDontShoot #Missing24

So did you “BLACKOUT” today?

Will You Take Part in the “National Black-Out” This Holiday Season?” The discussion tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

National Black Out_1There’s a move this holiday season by some 500 organizations with diverse leaders from 40 states, that have formed a ‘economic boycott’ and National Black-Out this holiday season.

The National Black-out will begin on black Friday November 27, 2015, all across America; with demonstrations and boycotts against retail chains such as; Wal-Mart, Target, shopping malls, banks and other big companies that take in billions of black dollars but are not owned and/or controlled by African Americans.

The National Black-out is a direct action against selected stores and companies who directly or indirectly contribute to the current suffering (s) of African Americans and/or “people of color” throughout the state.

BlackOut Friday starts…September 12, 2014!



The results weren’t on CNN or Fox News however, there were reports nationwide showing that #BlackOutMonday was a huge success!

I read some of your comments here on the Ceo’s blog from my last post regarding Blackout Monday, where some of you thought and even believed, these efforts would be of no avail. Well, I’m excited to report that SOME OF YOU WERE WRONG!

Due to the huge success and momentum from this movement, tens of thousands are gearing up to continue the BLACKOUT EACH AND EVERY FRIDAY. This means you can/should ONLY SUPPORT AND BUY from black-owned businesses each Friday, beginning this Friday September 12th! I will admit this will be a huge challenge for me especially since, I eat out almost every Friday at diversified restaurants of our choice.

The expansion of this movement began three weeks ago, as a result of a grass roots effort that continues to gain steam exponentially, since the murder of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9. The Twitter hashtag #eachandeveryfriday is being used to promote the ongoing event in an attempt to galvanize African-Americans to redirect their money with the hope of making things better for their communities.

Keep it going #EachandEveryFriday! Change is destined to come.

Blackout, Boycott, Protest/Boycott

Today is “BLACKOUT” Monday!!!!


Join the national effort to protest the police injustice in Ferguson, Missouri through our substantial purchasing power.

On September 8th 2014 many men and women of all races of the United States of America will boycott any establishment not ran by black entrepreneurs. On the 8th take a picture of an establishment you would normally frequent; fast food, gas station, supermarket and tag #BoycottForFerguson.

The Ferguson shooting of a young unarmed black man one week away from college who was immediately vilified has affirmed that now is the time to take a more drastic stand. Let’s begin by tapping the pockets of corporate America and creating a louder voice.

It’s time to realize we all bleed red and the senseless racism, prejudice, ignorance and violence must stop; so let’s all come together and do what our nation was meant to do. One Love, One Fight.
