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?

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.
