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.

Are we on the verge of another race riot? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


RACE-RIOTS

There are some details and incidents about racial unrest recently here in the United States.

In April 1992, one of the nation’s largest bouts of racial violence came behind the acquittal of four Los Angeles police officers who were videotaped beating unarmed Rodney King in April 1992. When that unrest subsided, 53 people had been killed and more than 2,000 had been injured. Property damage was estimated at $1 billion dollars or more.

Over the past 30 years, all hell has broken loose on numerous occasions, the most recent of course being the headline-grabbing racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. Compared to previous incidents, Ferguson has been pretty rough both in terms of its duration and the number of arrests involved.

These racial unrest was roiled after 18-year-old Michael Brown, an unarmed teen, who was black, was shot and killed by Darren Wilson, a white police officer, on Aug. 9.

If justice and fairness does not begin with the arrest of the police officer who killed Mike Brown, race riots might very well ensue again. Black males, who have recently been gunned down, wrestled down and/or killed by white men and/or white police officers who claim “reasonable fear” or “self-defense” as their defense, is becoming a weak or repeated cover.

Join me tonight at 8:00 PM on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” as I discuss “Are we on the verge of race riots in America 2014?”.

Missouri Teen Laid to Rest

Mike Brown the 18 year old unarmed teen, who was executed by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer was laid to rest yesterday, in an emotional and moving service attended by over two thousand mourners.

In a rousing speech, the Rev. Al Sharpton reminded mourners that 18-year-old Brown “should be in his second week of college.” And described how Brown’s body was left on the street for hours after he was killed “like nobody cared about him, like he didn’t have any loved ones, like his life value didn’t matter.”

We’re required in his name to change this country,” Sharpton said to cheers. “Justice is going to come! Justice is going to come! Justice is going to come!”

The vast majority of mourners at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church were African-American and many said they were deeply moved by the funeral.

Brown’s stepmother shared how Mike told her a month before he was gunned down in the streets that he kept dreaming about death.

“I’ve been dreaming of death, seeing pictures of death, seeing pictures of bloody sheets hanging on clotheslines” ‘That touched me” his stepmom said. “That’s what it was like when he was laying there on the street (after being shot). He prophesized his own death.”

Right now, a St. Louis County grand jury is considering whether to charge the white officer with a crime. Wilson, 28, has not been seen since the killing and has made no statements.
