“For the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house. They may allow us temporarily to beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change.” Audre Lorde Continue reading “Liberation or Nah; Y’all Niggas Still Clamoring for a Seat at the Table!?”

I ain’t tryna get into it If you on some “I ain’t African, I’m Afro-WTV-tf” or “I’m not African, I’m mixed” or “I’m not Black, I’m a person of color” or whatever race science nonsense the colonizer uses to divide Africans and other colonized people. Please remember capitalism and colonialism created these artificial divisions between working-class colonized people. Continue reading “Africa For The Africans!”

Nacatamal is the Nahuatl, or Aztec, word for meat tamale.
Of course, tamales existed waaay before the settlers and colonizers invaded our land, but the meat in the recipe changed with colonization. Pretty much back then our ancestors were making tamales with turkey meat, deer or just veggies; however, the colonizers introduced lard and changed the meat to pork in our tamales.

The United Snakes of America has always been a slave state. From the beginning the colonizer been stealing indigenous peoples land and resources. In the case of Africa the colonizer chose to steal people, so they could profit from their labor and livelihood. Colonizing black and brown people and using them as chattel is what built the wealthiest nation to have ever existed.
The colonizer continues this tradition today having turned the vehicle through which they steal lives and labour from ships, to cell blocks. Boasting the highest prison population in the world, the US holds onto its slave state status. The United Snakes has the highest % of its general population under some form of incarceration in the world. At the end of 2013, roughly 6.9 million adults — 2.8 % of the population — were under some kind of “correctional supervision”.

In Orlando, I can’t go no-where without seeing a brother or sister scavenging for some food. As the years go by the homeless population just seems to get higher and higher, I cant help but wonder if that has anything to do with the second soccer stadium they built on top of parramore, one of the oldest historically black neighborhoods in Orlando.
It also could be the fact that on top of two soccer stadiums there are now insanely bougie condos right across the street from the stadium to facilitate tourism, built with there own market strip of expensive italian restaurants and vegan doughnut shops. This is how gentrification functions. Continue reading “Orlando Meets Black Hammer: Good Food in the Hood”
The Black Upper Class (Petty Bourgeoisie) has no loyalty to the Black Poor and Working Class. Even though, without black poor people they wouldn’t have the ability to acquire such wealth.
With this understanding I am never shocked at the stunts they will pull getting that bread. Even so this underhanded sh*t Jay Z has just done has given me a bit of pause.
He has just signed a multi-million dollar deal, in which the exact amount isn’t being disclosed outside the NFL. You always know the money is extra dirty when the amount isn’t disclosed. The deal is for him to be a Token Negroe so that all black fans and black players can be good obedient cash cows again.
Of course that’s not what they said in the press conference. They said he gonna be working in the entertainment and social justice field of the NFL…. If you think JayZ and his people gonna be having regular meetings with the NFL so that the NFL can somehow stop police brutality against black people ….you are naive and your mother should have swallowed.
