Re: The Black "Progress Narrative" is Self-Defeating

Kocolicious ·
I agree that Blacks must start demanding instead of requesting. But we must also start respecting our cultures and the people in it and respect ourselves at the same time that's ONLY we can have any form of a Progress Narrative. It is only self-defeating when there's no self respect. We must there first. But!

I agree with him, too, provided that it is understood that to demand something does not necessarily have to be Verbal, that most of what we want has to be 'demanded' by our Actions [and non-Actions]. Ex.: Present/support candidates of our choosing, not chosen FOR us by Corporate Democrats. Move our money from non-Black banks to Black banks, or to Small Community Banks or Credit Unions. Stop boughing down to the West's 'Golden Calf', MATERIALISM. Unify to create Worker-Co-Ops to create our...

I saved the video, so next time some White person or Black person try to tell me that the police is gonna turn on everybody I have proof. The European is gonna take care of his own, he ain't gonna start killing Europeans. We have two got damn situations of White people armed in recent events, and they get off scott free. White people don't give a damn about non White people. They'll cuddle their own, give themselves reduced sentences for killing people, they'll subdue their own nonlethally.

Law enforcement agencies have training to deal with hostage situations. In those stories which have gained national attention law enforcement has been willing to camp out for several days dealing with an armed criminal. That armed criminal is usually white. In the Cliven Bundy rancher situation law enforcement was met by armed 2nd amendment paramilitary cowboy types and not one shot fired nor one arrest made. A black man with a toy gun in Wal-Mart gets obliterated having committed no crime...

@GoodMan, I've seen it several times on Facebook. I was incredulous that they shot the dude dead when clearly he needed a 72 hour hold for psychiatric evaluation! Where the heck do they do that at? A deranged person says kill me and they do it??? I've also seen the video of the frightened black mother pulled over by armed cops who was forced to walk backwards with her hands up while several cops had their weapons drawn. Apparently some motorist called in a report that a tan Toyota full of...

Every time they utter this young fellas name, they play the video. Those little pockets dancing away, before the shot.
