Protest Erupt Coast to Coast….So How was Trump Elected?


gettyimages-622089650_custom-89d75c84fe4cddae76c551bc506018e8e3841701-s800-c85Thousands of protesters took the streets of twenty U.S. cities across the country to express their disdain and denouncing the win for President Elect Donald Trump.

From New York to California, Chicago to Washington, protestors took to the streets and stayed steady in New York outside of Trump Tower marching to Union station. Standing on street signs and climbing utility poles.

Authorities said at least 6,000 people were marching through the streets, setting fires and chanting “Not my president” “Fuck Trump, he’s not my president” and “We Reject the president elect”

From Boston, MA to Seattle, Washington protestors are taking their anger and frustrations of the outcome of this election to the streets.

So the question is, how was Trump elected? Did voter suppression play a role in this election?

In his post-election victory speech, Trump said that he would be the president for all Americans, and that it was “time to come together as one united people.” This will be a challenge especially since he ran his campaign on a platform of turmoil, hatred, bigotry and sexism.

Another Black Man Killed in NC, yet President Obama is concerned about his Legacy?


Police fatally shot a North Carolina man they claim was armed — but a woman who said she was his daughter cried out on Facebook Live that he didn’t have a gun, triggering riotous protests that stretched out into the streets of Charlotte during pre-dawn hours of the morning.

As always, Charlotte police said Keith Lamont, 43 posed as an imminent threat when they tried to serve him with a warrant and he exited his vehicle with a gun. Lamont’s daughter took to her Facebook page to recant the cops claims that her father was armed.

In the meantime nation of Islam leader, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan chastised President Barack Obama for reprimanding black people about protecting his legacy.

Farakhan spoke with disdain in his voice about Obama’s self-serving speech at the Congressional Black Caucus gala, where Obama said his presidential “legacy” was in jeopardy if black people didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.

“I just want to tell you, Mr. President, you’re from Chicago, and so am I,” said Minister Farrakhan during a service at Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. on Sunday.

“I go out in the street with the people… I visited the worst neighborhoods… I talked to the gangs. They said, ‘you know, Farrakhan, the president ain’t never come… could you get him to come and look after us?’”

Farrakhan added:

“There’s your legacy, Mr. President… it’s in the streets with your suffering people, Mrs. President. And if you can’t go and see about them, then don’t worry about your legacy… ’cause the white people that you serve so well… they’ll preserve your legacy — the hell they will — but you didn’t earn your legacy with us!

“You didn’t earn your legacy with Black people. You fought for the rights of gay people… You fight for Israel… Your people are suffering and dying in the streets!”

Blackout, Boycott, Protest/Boycott

Today is “BLACKOUT” Monday!!!!


Black-Out-Monday-is-September-8

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.

400,000 Sign Petition for Macy’s to Oust Trump


Because of his loud mouth, his public skepticism about President Obama’s birthplace and “sexist” comments, over 400,000 people have signed a petition asking Macy’s to sever its ties with business mogul Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump does not reflect the ‘magic of Macy’s and “We urge you to sever ties with him,” the petition reads on signon.org.

Singer and actress Cher was among those joining the “Dump Trump” campaign, calling him a “loudmouth, racist cretin” over his criticism of Obama.

“I’ll NEVER GO TO MACY’S AGAIN! I didn’t know they sold Donald Trump’s Line!” she wrote on Twitter.

Trump’s spokesman Michael Cohen, however, expressed confidence in the strength of the real estate mogul’s relationship with Macy’s.

“Mr. Trump is important to Macy’s, both as a brand and as an endorser. His ties, shirts, cufflinks, fragrances and other merchandise are top-selling items across the country – in particular Mr. Trump’s ties are the number one selling ties at Macy’s.”

Cohen questioned whether there are, in fact, 400,000 unique signatures on the petition. “Nevertheless,” he added, “the country has been founded on the principles of freedom of speech – something Mr. Trump is entitled to as well as the creator of this petition.”

Trump had not personally addressed the petition on Twitter as of Monday afternoon, but made a point of tweeting about his new clothing line for Macy’s.

Mississippi Still Racist in 2012!


About 600 ‘Ole Miss’ students gathered Wednesday for the “We Are One Mississippi” counter-protest. Racial slurs were used when about 400 students gathered to protest President Obama’s re-election Tuesday night. The Tuesday night protest grew to about 400 students after Obama was re-elected.

Some shouted, “The South will rise again” during the protest, eyewitnesses and university police officials told The Clarion-Ledger. Others used racial slurs. An Obama campaign sign was also burned.

University of Mississippi students held a candlelight march to protest a spontaneous anti-Obama demonstration on Election Night that turned ugly when some students shouted racial slurs.

Ole Miss is still grappling with its legacy as the setting of racial riots in 1962 after James H. Meredith was enrolled as the school’s first black student. Two people were killed in the violent protests, which forced President John F. Kennedy to send in federal troops.

“It just makes me angry that we’re celebrating 50 years of integration yet people decided to be stupid last night and throw a fit over the election,” student Jordan Price told WREG.

“There’s no place for something like this in our school,” student Mackenzie Widder said.

School and police officials told The Clarion-Ledger that some reports, including those describing the demonstration as a “riot,” were exaggerated.

Dean of Students Sparky Reardon said: “There were tens of thousands of other Ole Miss students who were studying or working for campus media or attending election watch parties. They were busy doing what Ole Miss does best”

 The school is working on an appropriate response to the incident.

All of this took place because President Barack Obama was re-elected for a second term? What did they do four years ago when he was elected?
