Bamboozeled Part 1

The majority of Black peoples inability to excel in life are compounded by obstacles that are both self-inflicted and institutionally imposed. There are certain aspects of life that one must grasp or have some semblance of in order to be the slightest bit relevant in this world. The absence of education and knowledge places one at the mercy of others because it leaves one irrelevant, at a disadvantage and vulnerable. It will more often than not handicap your ability to progress or to achieve your goals.

The basic necessities needed to forge through life are simple and far from complex. We are continuously making life much more difficult than it needs to be. If we were to just gather ourselves and map out a simple course of action needed to accomplish some very basic goals we would be able to position ourselves for greater opportunities. But this however is something that a large majority of us black folk fail to do. We have become so accustomed to being irrelevant and complacent that we don’t even realize it. The process of devaluation and the marginalization by Europeans ( so-called white America ) over the years has damaged us to the point where we lack any positive perception of ourselves. To further compound this issue we are void of any substantive structure and discipline within our families and communities. We elect not to educate ourselves because of our self defeatist and nonchalant attitudes which also serve as constant road blocks in our life. We are rife with self-hatred and absent of self-identity which leads us to emulate the wrong people. We convince ourselves that a formal education and the ability to articulate oneself are qualities and characteristics unique to European ( so-called white people ). It is however quite the contrary, for these are essential components required to achieve any degree of success as a Black man or human being?

One major problem is that we handcuff and shackle ourselves mentally and physically. That for the most part is a very disturbing self-inflicted phenomenon. It is a process that requires very little effort on our part which is mainly due to complacency and familiarity. We tend to not possess the motivation or desire that is needed to change our situations. We have always succumb to our own fears, preconditioning and laziness. It has become too comfortable for us in our environment and we lack the initiative to strive for something better or different. Our little communities are a safe haven for us which doesn’t demand anything except for the mere desire to exist. How disturbing is that? There are a disproportionate number of us who want to maintain the status quo and will not do anything that threatens it. We will not venture out of our immediate environment to explore possibilities of what life has to offer. We have become extremely comfortable with the current circumstances and have no inclination to change it. Fear and a lack of self-confidence……

We have without a doubt been bamboozled and don’t even realize it. During four hundred plus years of slavery, we have been separated from our home country, stripped of our identity, afflicted with self-hatred, inflicted with cruel, vicious, inhumane treatment,. Not permitted to read, write, educate ourselves or to speak back to the European (so-called white man) without fear of physical retribution. We have had our spirits broken to demoralize us,  our dignity castrated, endured unquestionable suffrage and have had to accept the  Europeans ( so called whites ) as our masters and the superior race. We have been systematically conditioned to depend on these people for our very existence. That without their shameful arrogant pretentious benevolence we are meaningless and helpless. They have portrayed themselves as the savior and we have become the lamb of the field. The majority of Black folk are very much like sheep or cattle, breeding and wandering about aimlessly all day grazing in the pasture.  We have been conditioned for docility and should we become unruly, his trusted herd dog (police) will restore things back to order.

This shepherds philosophy has become virtually ingrained in the minds of so many black folk . He has implemented a strategy of domination via psychological implementation, communication and demonstration. He has pitted the house negro against the field negro. The dark-skinned negro against the lighter skinned negro. The kinky and curly-haired negro against the straight and thin haired negro.The fat lipped and broad nosed negro against the thin-lipped and narrow nosed negro.The ignorant and inarticulate negro against the educated and articulate  negro. This strategy has been adopted and implemented to perfection and the majority of us have become afflicted with it. The concept is to obliquely systematically divide and conquer. It is called The Willie Lynch syndrome and it has encapsulated us by design, we just don’t know it. We need to wake up out of our stupor and realize that in order to remove these restraints we must liberate our minds and transform our attitudes. We must construct and embrace a rejuvenated renaissance within the Black communities and Black culture. Otherwise we will forever roam the pastures and graze among the grasses of ignorance. To be continued….

America’s New Militarized Police

militarization

 

All across America we have come to notice a very alarming and fear provoking presence. One of unprecedented power and discomfort that invokes both thoughts and feelings of bewilderment. This uncommon sight that we are only accustomed to seeing in times of war, has overtly made it’s presence visible in the streets of America. We are familiar with seeing such powerful weaponry broadcast on our news programs on foreign soil to battle America’s enemies and fight against those who threaten to inflict harm on her body of democracy. America has been to us the home of unbridled freedom and liberties. She has embraced her children in her bosom to protect them against those that would cause them harm.

Today, her children are confronted with a militarized presence that one would only expect to see in a dictatorial country.  We have come face to face with weaponry of enormous power on full display in the streets of America where we assemble for peaceful protest and freedom of speech. These high powered assault rifles in the possession of local police decked out in full combat gear have on numerous occasions had their sights aimed at unarmed American citizens. When has America’s citizens become the target of oppression by the very force that is compensated to protect them? Granted, there aren’t any written laws or legislature that affords us this right.

The right to protest is a perceived human right arising out of a number of recognized human rights. While no human rights instrument or national constitution grants the absolute right to protest, such a right to protest may be a manifestation of the right to freedom of assembly, the right to freedom of association, and the right to freedom of speech[1] paragraph taken from wikipedia

However, unarmed citizens that do not pose a threat to anyone and the very presence of this militarized force in our streets leaves one with the visual impression of a war zone. Have we now become the enemy and a threat to national security instead of the terrorist? Why has law enforcement been given a free pass to terrorize and violate the rights of American citizens whom they are sworn to serve and protect? Do we not recall how innocent and unarmed students of Kent State who were shot and killed by our own National Guardsmen?  Arming our police officers with military weaponry is like giving gasoline and a match to an arsonist. They just can’t resist the urge to use it….This level of power and autonomy for paid civilians is much to intoxicating and extremely dangerous. It invites a tyrannical mentality that completely clouds the judgement between duty, law, justice and abuse. Such an obscurity is unavoidable.

Not only has this type of power been on display in times of peaceful protest it has also been used for calls to private residences for the most minor complaints. It has been used to murder a homeless man in New Mexico in the act of compliance. They have burst into homes in the dead of night unannounced and have terrorized unsuspecting citizens with their presence and a complete disregard for civil liberties. Flash grenades have been tossed in a babies crib almost killing the infant. The majority of these incidents did not warrant such an extreme use of  force. We have heavily armored mine resistance trucks that have been acquired for college campuses. Really? The very notion that in this day and time we would be subject to such a blatant disregard for our lives by our own is unfathomable and unacceptable. We have become irrelevant while the unconscionable actions of law enforcement appear to be irrepressible. This is what you breed when you arm regular citizens who haven’t any military training whatsoever. It is a complete abuse of power and a recipe for disaster. We the citizens are on the receiving end of this horrific blunder. What we see is very reminiscent of Afghanistan, Iraq or some other country that is in a never any cycle of violence and conflict. This is America and those countries we are not.

We are not the enemy and we will no longer continue to be treated as such. We have arrived at the point where we the citizens require protection from the protectors. It is time to disarm and dismantle this institution of law enforcement of it’s military weaponry. They haven’t any justifiable purpose to be in possession of it. More importantly, America is the land of freedom and justice for all and she should exemplify that.  She has slowly strayed from her constitutional promise and is precariously slipping off the foundation on which she was constructed. It is incumbent upon us that we right her before she completely collapses.

GENERATIONAL SUICIDE

GENERATIONAL SUICIDE AMONG BLACK PEOPLE IS WHAT I REFER TO AS A SELF DESTRUCTIVE MENTALITY WHICH HAS A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF MY PEOPLE  SUBMERGED  IN A STATE OF MENTAL AND ECONOMICAL PARALYSIS. WE HAVE BECOME PERVASIVELY MALIGNED BY OUR OWN LACK OF EDUCATION, MISINFORMATION AND IGNORANCE.
 

WE HAVE ARRIVED AT A PERIOD IN TIME WHERE THE WORLD HAS TRANSITIONED INTO A PLACE THAT IS RIFE WITH TERRORISTS ATTACKS , CONFLICTS, WARRING FACTIONS, RELIGIOUS AND POLITICAL CONTROVERSY, GLOBAL WARMING, SOCIAL UNREST, ECONOMICAL IMBALANCE, CLASS WARFARE, DISEASE, HOMELESSNESS, SELF DESTRUCTION OF HUMANKIND, ABSENCE OF INTEGRITY, MORALS, SELF IDENTITY, KNOWLEDGE AND EDUCATION.

WE ARE ENCAPSULATED IN IGNORANCE, MASS CONFUSION AND POSSESS VERY LITTLE UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE. CONSEQUENTIALLY THIS HAS GIVEN RISE TO SO MANY OF US BEING VOID OF ANY REAL SENSE OF PURPOSE OR DIRECTION AND TO WHICH A LOT HAVE FALLEN PREY TO AN INDUSTRY THAT SELLS THEM ON GANGSTERISM, THUG-ISM AND GLAMORIZES THE DEGRADATION OF WOMEN AND MURDER. WE HAVE BEEN SO CONDITIONED THAT WE LACK ANY SEMBLANCE OF SELF RESPECT OR RESPECT FOR OTHERS. SO I ASK THE QUESTION, HOW CAN WE EXPECT TO COMMAND ANY RESPECT IF RESPECT IS NOT GIVEN?.

WE ENGAGE IN UNLAWFUL ACTS OF VIOLENCE, DRUGS, THIEVERY, CHICANERY AND CONDUCT OURSELVES WITH UTTER BUFFOONERY FOR THE WORLD TO WITNESS. WE ARE MURDERING EACH OTHER WITH A COMPLETE DISREGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE. WE HAVE SLIPPED INTO AN ABYSS OF BOTTOM FEEDERS WITH NO CLEAR SENSE OF DIRECTION. THIS DEBILITATING AND DESTRUCTIVE CONDITION HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO PROLIFERATE FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION. NOW, A LARGE SEGMENT OF OUR POPULATION HAVE BECOME SELF APATHETIC DARKNESS DWELLERS  AFFLICTED WITH IGNORANCE. THEY ARE  ABSOLUTELY VOID OF ILLUMINATION AND ARE PRODUCING CHILDREN WHO WILL BECOME IMMERSED IN THE SAME CYCLE OF MADNESS.. HOW IS IT THAT SO MANY OF US HAVE DESCENDED INTO A STATE OF DISCONNECT, POVERTY AND WRETCHEDNESS AFTER THE  GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE 60’s AND 70’s?
HISTORICALLY OUR UNEMPLOYMENT RATE HAS ALWAYS BEEN ALMOST TWICE THAT OF WHITES.
OUR  PER CAPITA INCOME HOUSEHOLD IS THE LOWEST AMONG ANY ETHNIC GROUP
WE HAVE THE HIGHEST HIGH SCHOOL DROP OUT RATE WHICH IS TWICE THAT OF WHITES
WE HAVE THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF FAMILIES LIVING JUST ABOVE OR BELOW THE POVERTY LINE.
WE ARE INCARCERATED AT A MUCH HIGHER RATE. APPROXIMATELY 40% OF 2.5 MILLION MALE INMATES ARE BLACK. FORTY PERCENT, THAT’S ALMOST HALF THE MALE INMATE POPULATION
WE HAVE DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF TEENAGE PREGNANCY THAN WHITES
THIS UNDOUBTEDLY IS NOT A PATHWAY TO SUCCESS BUT MORE OF A PATH THAT MOST ASSUREDLY WILL LEAD TO FAILURE AND SELF DESTRUCTION. THE LIST OF NEGATIVE COMPONENTS IS EXTENSIVE AND YET WE EITHER CHOOSE NOT TO TAKE NOTICE OR WE NOTICE AND CHOOSE NOT TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT. EITHER WAY THE DISEASE WILL MALIGN US FOR GENERATIONS AS IT GOES UNABATED AND CONTINUES TO REMAIN A PREVALENT AND DESTRUCTIVE ORGANISM WITHIN US, OUR COMMUNITIES AND THE WORLD IF LEFT UNABATED. THESE STATS ARE SHAMEFUL AND UNACCEPTABLE AS IT  ILLUSTRATES THAT WE ARE OUR OWN WORST ENEMIES. THE LIVES SACRIFICED DURING THE PERIODS OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS  AND VOTER RIGHTS REGISTRATION ERA ALONG WITH THE BLACK POWER  MOVEMENTS HAVE BECOME A DISTANT MEMORY. 
AS THE OCEANS OF TURMOIL, INACTION, DISCOURAGEMENT AND DISCONTENT CONTINUES TO GROW, WE FIND OURSELVES HAVING DIFFICULTY NAVIGATING THE WAVES TO CLEAR PASSAGE. OUR VESSELS ARE WEAK, ILL CONSTRUCTED AND THE CREWS LACK THE KNOWLEDGE AND LEADERSHIP NEEDED TO MAKE THIS JOURNEY.  ONCE WE EMBARK ON THIS JOURNEY OUR VESSEL ( Movement ) MUST BE CONSTRUCTED OF GREAT STRENGTH ,ENDURANCE AND INTEGRITY.  IT MUST HAVE THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND THE CONSTANT ONSLAUGHT FROM THE BATTERING WAVES OF THE ENEMY, THE DISCONTENTED AND THE NAYSAYERS.  WE MUST HAVE AN EDUCATED, KNOWLEDGEABLE, COURAGEOUS CREW WITH UNWAVERING QUALITIES OF LEADERSHIP AND COMMITMENT.
WE MUST ALWAYS BEAR IN MIND THAT CHANGE IS INEVITABLE AND UNDOUBTEDLY WILL COME. HOWEVER, FOR THE TYPE OF CHANGE THAT WE ENVISION REQUIRES US TO POSITION OURSELVES ACCORDINGLY AND SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EFFECT THAT CHANGE.  WE CAN NOT RELY ON THE EFFORTS OF OTHERS OR SOME NOTION OF BEING FORTUNATE (LUCKY). OUR DESTINY IS SHAPED BY OUR DECISIONS AND WHAT WE DO MOVING FORWARD AND LUCK ONLY OCCURS WHEN OPPORTUNITY MEETS PREPAREDNESS. YOU CAN PLAY THE LOTTERY, HIT THE JACKPOT, AND STRIKE A FORTUNE.  HOWEVER IF YOU DO NOT POSSESS THE KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED TO MANAGE YOUR NEW FOUND WEALTH, YOU WILL SURELY SQUANDER IT.
WE MUST FIRST AND FOREMOST TAKE A LOOK AT OURSELVES AND DECIDE THAT IF WE WANT CHANGE FOR THE BETTER, WE MUST UNDERGO A TRANSFORMATION OF OUR MIND, BODY, PHYSICAL, AND SPIRITUAL ENVIRONMENTS. WE CAN NO LONGER CONTINUE TO FUNCTION IN A MANNER THAT IS COUNTER PRODUCTIVE TO OUR SUCCESS. THE TIME HAS ARRIVED FOR US TO BE RELEVANT BUT JUST HOW RELEVANT, DEPENDS ON OUR OWN TRANSFORMATION. WE MUST ERADICATE OURSELVES OF THE SELF DEFEATIST ATTITUDES AND MINDSETS THAT HAVE PLAGUED OUR UPWARD MOBILITY AND WE MUST DISCONTINUE GRAVITATING TOWARDS THAT WHICH IS DESTRUCTIVE TO OUR WELL BEING AND QUALITY OF LIFE.  SUCCESS WILL BE PREDICATED ON HOW MUCH WE COMMIT OURSELVES TO THE PROCESS. 
DEDICATION, DETERMINATION, DISCIPLINE AND DILIGENCE IS WHAT WE’LL NEED TO PERSEVERE .
WE  MUST ASK OURSELVES WHAT ARE WE WILLING TO CONTRIBUTE AND WHAT ARE WE PREPARED TO SACRIFICE  IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THIS MILESTONE.  THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION WILL DETERMINE THE AMOUNT OF SUCCESS  REALIZED NOT ONLY FOR OURSELVES  BUT OUR CHILDREN. ANYTHING OF GREAT SIGNIFICANCE REQUIRES GREAT EFFORT…To Be Continued….

THE NEW (KLANSMAN) IN AMERICA

KKK Police 

 

This country is very familiar with the Klansman of old who under the cover of darkness donned white hoods, sheets and conducted a campaign of terror throughout America that targeted former African-American slaves, their families and descendants. These were the white Southern and Midwest citizens of the United States of America whose lineage is from that of former slave owners and others. These are the white citizens of America that during the period of slavery and afterwards, committed despicable and cowardly acts of violence, rape and murder. This is an untold period of historical fact of an America that has clothed herself in the red, white and blue garment of virtue (conformity to moral and ethical principles), integrity, patriotism and democracy.
She has been presented to the world as the epitome of greatness, strength and power. Yet the very fabric from which her garment is weaved has become soaked and stained of blood spilled from the countless innocent lives that these cowards cloaked in white sheets have taken. They have castrated, maimed, whipped, lynched, burned alive, raped, sodomized, impregnated with their seed, and murdered a large segment of the African-American people. They have in the dead of night burned crosses on the front lawns of African-American families with malicious intent to intimidate and terrorize. They have marched openly in the streets of America spewing vile and racist rhetoric at a people solely based on the color of skin. They have out of hatred and jealousy bombed from planes an entire town of prominent and successful African-Americans citizens who seized the opportunity of freedom to pursue prosperity and democracy. They have murdered and burned innocent young African-American girls attending church. Imagine that, these so-called self-proclaimed Christians who glorify themselves as white supremacists taking the lives of other Christians. One would ask how and why  would anyone commit such reprehensible acts of violence upon another human being? Oh let us not forget that these same so-called Christians crucified their beloved Jesus. One would also ask why and how could such conduct and deplorable behavior be allowed to persist without the demand for justice and prosecution?

The answer to this question is a very simple one.  America’s virtuous garment of patriotism, democracy, freedom, liberty, and justice for all is threaded with hypocrisy. For she has beckoned to the call of duty on more than one occasion the African-American to stand up and defend her honor against perpetrators of violence and destroyers of democracy. America on the other hand has failed to provide any manner of defense or protection for  her African-American defenders and their children. She has not and will not question the atrocities that have been and currently still are today exacted upon them by her white defenders and their children. She has turned her back on those and their descendants who have with unwavering courage and loyalty fought, shed blood, and died for her so that she could maintain freedom and democracy. This same freedom and privilege however is not extended to the African-American children of her nation. Instead there is a constant stream of hate, violence, racial discrimination, and murder that we endure at the hands of her venomous and despicable white children. Yes America, land of the free and the home of the brave is a thankless , non reciprocating coward as it pertains to her African-American children.

She has songs written with words of glorification that attest to her majestic presence, but these words are more befitting.
Oh say can you see by the dawns early light,
What so proudly they killed at the twilights last gleaming.
Whose burning crosses were raised thru the perilous night
O’er the ramparts they watched the blood aimlessly streaming.

This has been America’s unspoken legacy which she attempts to conceal and forget. She would wish for the slate to be clean as the driven snow and her presence exalted with unabashed glory. She would have us think that her past is without blemish and that she is clothed in purity. She will insist to us African-Americans that we forget about slavery and the wretchedness that she has bathed in. We however, haven’t any intention to forget or turn a blind eye to the past or to the present. The blatant and most times subtle biased treatment is still very prevalent and permeates through every fabric of American society.
Today we are experiencing that same violent and murderous conduct which continues unabated. The difference this time around is that her evil children of the KKK are no longer concealed behind the white hoods and sheets and dark of night.

Present day Klansman now operate behind the impenetrable shield of law enforcement and code of blue protection. They have exchanged their hoods and sheets for the uniform of law and have at their disposal an arsenal of weaponry more suitable for military combat. This new costume offers them a complete sanctity behind  a wall of protection and irreproachable facade. In the eye of the public they are cast as men of unquestionable and unshakeable integrity and honor. We are confronted in this era with a new Klansman who is allowed to operate openly with impunity and no real threat of prosecution. This new Klansman has killed over 5000 people in America and still counting since 9/11. This figure is more than any terrorist group has committed over the same time span. These numbers average just a little fewer than four hundred (400) American lives per year that have been taken by the hands of police. These are the very same people who have a sworn duty to serve and protect its citizens. This new reign of terror that has taken underway has become an epidemic of unwarranted acts of violence, racial discrimination, profiling, unjustifiable searches/detainment, blatant disregard for civil rights, and murder. We have gradually slipped back into an era of prejudicial and wanton violence with no visible or tangible recourse. Could it be that the a lack of consciousness and complete indifference for justice  is based on a prejudicial mindset towards the victims? That would suggest that the individuals who are in a position to prosecute are culpable in the scenario and give them their blessing. So therefore the entire system from top to bottom is tainted and corrupt.. What other reason would explain the reluctance to seek justice and prosecution?

http://abcnews.go.com/US/florida-cop-fired-kkk-ties-undercover-wife-claims/story?id=24645425

We have voiced our anger, we have cried, we have protested, we have consoled one another, we have marched, we have expressed our displeasure with the absence of justice, and we continue to bury our own more and more with the passing of time. Our people are continuously killed by this new American Klansman and there is no immediate indication that it will cease. What are the alternatives for us as a people? What measures must we take against the vicious acts of those that kill African-Americans indiscriminately and with malice? This is the question that begs an answer to a corrupted system of protection and unaccountability.

 It is asserted that one African-American male is killed every 28 hours by police or vigilantes.
http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/1-black-man-killed-every-28-hours-police-or-vigilantes-america-perpetually-war-its
There is a new Klansman in America and he doesn’t seem to be making an exit anytime soon people. We as African-American citizens must devise a plan of action that will escort this trigger happy maniacal group of murderers to the exit door. There is no place in the America that we envision for ourselves, for them….

SOMETIMES RADICAL CHANGE CALLS FOR RADICAL ACTION!!!

NATIONAL BOYCOTT ACROSS AMERICA

WE MUST SHUT THIS COUNTRY DOWN!!!

(NO JUSTICE) NO PEACE, NO FREEDOM, NO PROFIT

 

AFRICAN AMERICANS AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY, MISCONDUCT AND MURDER
The time has come for us and those who support us to take a stand and form a united front against the senseless, violent, and murderous acts committed by law enforcement officers throughout the United States. These are the American citizens both men and women that have sworn an oath to serve and protect the very citizens they victimize. This is the establishment that has a duty to protect and serve but instead violates that contract of oath with the American people by its deplorable conduct. Since 911 there have been more American Citizens killed by Law Enforcement in the U.S. than by terrorists. An excess of over 5000 Americans citizens since then have lost their lives at the hands of police officers which is an alarming number at any rate.
We the people are continuously victimized by these overzealous maniacs whose badge and uniform are supposed to be a representation of integrity and honor. We are supposed to feel safe and confident when we see these civil servants in uniform but instead we feel threatened. As United States citizens it is our tax dollars that supports and pays the salaries of this Law Enforcement Agency. Yet we, the citizens of the United States of America who pay for the protection of this agency seek a need for protection against them. What have we become as a nation when we allow American citizens who wear the uniform of law to beat, kick, shoot, murder and violate the rights of the American citizens they have sworn to serve and protect?
When has it become acceptable to shoot down in cold blood any citizen that has raised his or her hands in the air to surrender or one who is fleeing?
When has a citizen carrying a pocket knife become more dangerous than a citizen with an assault rifle or firearm exercising their right to open carry?
When has the use of deadly force become necessary to disarm any citizen carrying anything other than a firearm?
When has it become acceptable to beat any female citizen with fists, to place her in a choke hold or to throw her to the ground with severe, unnecessary, and brutal force that causes extensive injuries or death?
When has it become acceptable to punch or tip over any handicapped citizen in a wheelchair who clearly offers no indication of being a threat?
When has it become acceptable to viciously beat, taser or shoot with deadly force any citizen that has been handcuffed? What possible threat could they be at that point?                                                                                Why is it possible to tase and subdue armed white men who have killed and shot numerous people without killing them but an unarmed Black man has to be shot and killed?
How is it possible to rule that the majority of these officers acted in self-defense or that their actions were completely justifiable?
These are just a few vicious and heinous acts of violence committed by these officers in blue who have become more representative of black and blue…Are we a country that sits idly by and allows these officers whose actions are those of a death squad to continue without challenge or accountability?  We are talking about cold-blooded murder and I as another human being has become extremely tired and discontented with the lack of concern or effort by the Federal Government to take the appropriate action to protect its citizens from such blatant acts of violence and murder by law enforcement officers. It is time that this agency review it’s procedures as it pertains to arrest and apprehension. It must review it policies regarding which situations require the use of deadly force. The use of deadly force should never be exercised by any officer against an unarmed citizen.

My proposal is that it is time for us to put our money where our mouth is. We need to bring national attention to this out of control epidemic of violence.  We need to boycott all National holiday sales as a beginning. Organized Massive boycotts or work stoppages that will impact the economy need to be planned and executed. This is not just an African-American issue, this is a Human Rights issue.  I am imploring all American citizens  that are fed up with the deplorable conduct of our Law Enforcement Agency’s to organize and to make an impact..

 

If you say you are tired of the senseless beatings, if you say you are fed up with the murders  that aren’t prosecuted,  if you say you are done with the civil rights violations, harassment, profiling and you want to make a statement, then this is your opportunity to do so. This can and should be a national if not global boycott that could possibly have a huge impact for our cause. We can boycott this day and every other huge sale day if need be in order to be taken seriously. This is a prime opportunity for us as American citizens to demand to have our voices heard and become relevant.
If you are not willing to sacrifice buying the latest gadgets, toys or big screen sets then you are not ready for a change. If you can not for one or two days refrain from the lure of shopping and you have very little faith in the power that your money has, then you are not ready for change. How much longer are you willing to tolerate this reprehensible behavior and conduct by law enforcement? How much longer are you willing to allow these officers to make a mockery of justice and your rights as citizens? How many more citizens have to be brutally beaten or murdered before these officers are held accountable? We can not shoot them down in the streets but we can and must make a statement with our dollars. This is not a huge sacrifice and I know that there are a lot of people who might be skeptical. However, it is what we have to implement and it is the start for us to finally unite as one and effect a change.. Others before us have sacrificed their lives, shed blood and so much more for what they believed in. This is the least we can do to eradicate this blight on police, morality and civil rights. If we fail to take this initiative and make a stand now, then the deaths of Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Darrien Hunt, Jonathan Crawford, Tamir Rice and countless others will have been meaningless.
If not now then when? If not by us then by who? We need to have our voices heard, our issues and demands reconciled.  Enough is Enough!!! Massive boycotts or work stoppages that will impact the economy need to be planned and executed. This is not only an African-American issue, this is a Human Rights issue.

We demand the demilitarization of all police departments within the USA
We demand that any officer involved in the shooting death of an unarmed person be Immediately suspended from duty without pay pending an investigation and be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for murder.
We demand that all law enforcement officers be retrained to use non violent methods in order to subdue suspects that are not a threat to the life of an officer.
We demand the immediate halt to the request of ID from citizens without just cause.
We demand that all officers be required to wear video cameras
We demand that officers who violate any person’s civil rights be immediately reprimanded and suspended without pay for one month.
We demand an immediate halt to racial or any manner of profiling.
We demand that any officer that strikes a person without just cause be immediately suspended without pay.
We demand that any male officer that strikes a woman be immediately discharged from duty and brought up on charges.
