Re: The Occupy Movement, Gentrification and Black America’s Ancient Struggle

And no discussion of cars and automobiles. How many Americans could have homes paid for if trillions had not been wasted on cars designed to become obsolete? But that brings up the issue of understanding technology to know if the cars are designed to become obsolete or not. But too often we just look at technology from the outside and only know as much as some palefaces decide to tell us. Xum

gentrification Definition The process of wealthier residents moving to an area, and the changes that occur due to the influx of wealth. As wealthier inhabitants move into an area that is already populated with lower-income residents, the neighborhood begins to change as well. Often this will spark an urban renewal process, which cleans up the town, but often leads to an increase in rent, taxes, and other items. Sometimes this change means that the previous residents can no longer afford to...

But they don't. Some years ago a Black architect business bought a building and needed furniture and the furniture company sent a Black lady to make a deal on the furniture they were interested in and the Black owned architect company ask to replace the Black lady with a white person. Some Black people think they are too good for Black people. The furniture company is a Jewish owned company and they were very puzzled why these Black professionals wanted a white person since it is the...

It's still incredible just how brainwashed and socially conditioned into Stockholm Syndrome some Black people are. It's really amazing. Black people like that are a literal case study into the duration of brainwashing and social conditioning.

The Great, Bloody Black Dispersal from the Cities Glen Ford , BAR executive editor 01 Mar 2018 The Great, Bloody Black Dispersal from the Cities “ The grand plan is to reverse the demography of the Seventies by forcing Blacks out of the central cities and into suburbs and small towns, rendering Black people incapable of ever again launching a national movement headquartered in the urban centers.” The urban saga of the 1950s, 60s and early 70s was white flight from the cities, fueled by...

These people don't like "black" anything, I doubt if they like black shoes. When they finish arming themselves to the nines and point their guns in all of our direction, what are going to do? We're all going to DIE. They call Barack Obama and Michelle all kinds of women and men, gorillas, Silverbacks; have no respect for them whatsoever. They've called us everything in the book, shot our asses down in the street, hung us up trees; yet, when they go to war with other people of color, there we...

I think I'm actually burning-out on the number of Americans walking around in fantasy land while racist right-wing fascists are staging a coup d 'etat against the United States of America, the United States Constitution, American Laws, Government Agencies and the Rights of American Citizens. And that is on top of all of...

“The Flint water crisis, which was caused in part due to aged, rusted delivery pipelines, exposed problems that many cities across the United States now have: a delivery infrastructure that has exceeded its utility age and a lack of funding and political will to effectively address the issues.” This is kind of true and is important but is factually 100% wrong. Rust was not the deadly problem. The real and deadly problem could easily have been avoided by adding alkaline minerals into the...

If the problem was old pipes then people would have gotten lead poisoning before they switched to acidic water. Cities like Boston do not replace their old pipes to prevent the real danger of lead poisoning. They add minerals to the water.

THANK YOU!! And if they were not psychopaths, they wouldn't have distributed water filters to Flint residents, knowing full well, that there are no water filters that can filter out lead . The water poisoning they are doing in Flint [and all other predominately Black communities], is just one (1) part of THE PURGE , where they are pulling out all the stops the commit GENOCIDE against as many Black people in America as possible.
