Racism at the work place is the most frequent but also the least acknowledged form of racism in today’s society. The majority of the leadership positions in American companies are held by white men, which puts African American employees in a vulnerable situation when faced with racism. Think about it, it’s complicated to argue with your white boss …View full post

PLEDGE – AS LONG AS DONALD TRUMP IS IN OFFICE I CONSIDER MYSELF MY OWN PRESIDENT. I CAN’T BE LED OR REPRESENTED BY A SO-CALLED LEADER WHO’S EVERY DECISION IS MADE FOR HIS PERSONAL BENEFIT, NOT OURS. TRUMP RAN HIS CAMPAIGN ON TAKING AMERICA BACK TO WHAT HE CONSIDERED WAS GREAT, BUT ANY BLACK PERSON KNOWS THAT AMERICA’S PRESENT (EXCLUDING TRUMP) IS DEFINITELY GREATER THAN ANY TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY FOR US. DONALD TRUMP IS AN ASSAULT ON THE TRUTH. I WOULD NEVER FOLLOW SOMEONE THAT HAS SHOWN HE IS THE EPITOME OF A NARCISSISTIC LIAR. REAL ONES ROCK WITH TRUTH.
We cannot continue to be naive and believe racism is only coming from old white men that are dying off. To many of us act as if racism is mostly in the past and somewhat in the present, but not a part of our future. The liberal media wants us to only worry about old white republicans and not these young ones.
This beautiful, incredible child represents so many black children that are growing up knowing they live in a society that devalues their lives and the lives of their loved ones. This is not something that is taught, they feel it because they live it. No media propaganda, false narrative, or skewed statistics can diminish or discredit that reality. These childhood experiences at such a tender age will leave a heaviness on her heart that will stifle her innocence, prematurely accelerate her maturity, have a strong affect on her self-image and how she values her self-worth, and play a major role in shaping the adult she’ll become. Just another reminder that must continue to fight – if not to save for ourselves, to save our children.
Once again, a white man trying to dictate the narrative of how black Americans should view the history of slavery in America. Bill O’Reilly could not stomach the fact that Michele Obama acknowledged that the white house was built off of slavery, so he decided to come up with a watered down version of the slave experience by saying that black slaves were treated good, fed well, and there was others that helped build the white house too. Truth – its extremely disrespectful and inconsiderate to black people for Bill O’Reilly to ever use the words “treated good” when speaking in reference to slavery in America. O’Reilly personifies the reason why we can’t continue to only allow white america to tell us our history because they will alter it the best they can to benefit them.
There is literally no more cooperating that could have been done. He was laying down with hands up and talking to the police to let them know there is no weapon and he still gets shot? On top of that, he was put into hand cuffs before police examined the wounds to assess what level of medical attention was needed. Black men are truly an endangered species in America.
