23 Ways you can be Killed(Black Celebs speak out)

23 ways.....

I saw this video earlier today on YouTube.  It’s called 23 Ways you could be Killed being Black in America.  It’s from the organization We Are Here.  We are Here is singer Alicia Keys organization.

We are Here...

I’ve checked out her site.  It says on her website that their issues are equality,justice,women  and climate issues.  watching the video(above)  I liked the fact they brought up the murders of Sean Bell,Tamir Rice,Rekia Boyd,Eric Garner and Sandra Bland..among others.  Although I do find it interesting that the video was released on the third anniversary of the Trayvon Martin not guilty verdict.  I also found it interesting that Alicia Keys is the one heading this group fighting for equality for blacks.  Considering that just a few weeks ago Jesse Williams (another biracial) person speaking against police brutality.  I think it’s nice that Beyoncé,Chris Rock,Rihanna,Common and Taraji P Henson decided to speak out against these murders.  And of course they had to put white singers like Bono,Pink and Adam Levine in there as well.  That was just so the public doesn’t think this is some type of Black Power movement.  They always have to add a few whites in the mix.  But my major difference with these celebs is I don’t want equality with my oppressors.  I want freedom from oppression and real liberation.  Liberation is different than integration.  So do you think these black celebs are legit?  Do you think they really care?  Or is this just more racial propaganda?  Watch the video and let me know your thoughts.

Robert Mugabe invokes the spirit of Marcus Garvey

This is a great speech in my opinion. During a speech at an international summit in Harare, Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe gave a clarion call for Africans and African-Americans to forge closer ties so as to advance the cause of people of African descent.  It was nice to hear him say that all people of African descent should be pulling together against our racist oppressors. We have to stand as a collective unit for our liberation.  I liked how he quoted the great Marcus Garvey as well. It would be nice to see this by more African leaders. Many of them come off as cowards who are afraid to speak TRUTH to power. I salute Mugabe for having the guts to say this. I also admire that he has stood up to the homosexual agenda the western world has been trying to impose on Africa. Maybe this speech will make other African leaders get up some courage and follow his lead. We can only hope.
