At this point, it honestly doesn’t make sense to keep asking that, we all should know the answer by now. The only pig charged with a “crime” during the lynching of Breonna Taylor, was charged with wanton endangerment for their bullets hitting the shared wall with neighbors instead of striking the Africans inside the house. When Eric Garner was lynched the only person to be arrested was Ramsey Orta, the person who filmed the pigs murder Garner. While they loot our lives, they charge us with disturbing the peace. We should stop…


I can remember hearing X’s growl and being hooked by his voice the first time I heard “Get At Me Dog” in 1998. “What must I go through to show you sh*t is real/And I ain’t really never gave a f*ck how n*ggas feel” sat in my chest, almost foreshadowing the years in front of me that would leave me traumatized from amerikkka’s War against African and other Indigenous People. What makes X one of the most beloved artists of his era was Earl’s ability to stay gritty and true to the streets while sharing his spirituality. In the history…


This week has been the most recent example in the long history of amerikkka’s lucrative industry of Black/African pain and death. Everyone in amerikkka seems to be obsessed with profiting off of the pain and death of the people and even worse, so many do this under the guise of social justice while waving their “Black Lives Matter” flag. The contradictions become ever more present when looking at the ways in which our pain has been monetized since the first colonizer stepped foot on The Continent. Capitalism has always been at the very root of our genocide. …


On my first day of spring break, I thought I would get some work done for my own projects before I would turn grades in early so I could relax and here I am writing this piece as I caught myself weeping over “Shelter” by Vic Mensa, Chance The Rapper and the legendary Wyclef Jean. I am weeping as I am trying to prepare a lesson for teachers on decolonizing the curriculum and as I am grabbing evidence in hopes to bring awareness on why it is imperative for us to change the way we are teaching our students I…


Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.

President Joe Biden

From 2Chainz to Tamika Mallory, the Black Elite pushed a hard line propagating for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this past election cycle. “My VP is a Black Woman” merch is everywhere as Black people “re-affirm” their Blackness through their support of Biden/Harris. A post-Trump nation has given so many a huge sigh of relief and a belief that fascism (for the first time in history) was defeated at the polls. Even still, the “insurrection”…


“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.”

Frantz Fannon

In amerikkka from the time we are very young we are taught that “the bad guys go to prison.” We are taught that prison is the worst place to be but “if…

If a Black person wants to be a capitalist, ask them if they are willing to exploit Black people for Black capitalism

Jalil Muntaqim

Black billionaires won’t save us. Black presidents won’t save us. Banking Black won’t save us. As Meghan found out, even your Black baby won’t save us. No, as Africans nothing can save us from the violence, the oppression, from the death of white supremacy. White supremacy is the ideology of European imperialism, whereas today Amerikkka is simply a reformed British empire. Assimilation into the colonial system comes at the expense of ancestors and Black and Brown…


Agitation Propaganda by Felisa Concepcion, MSW

“That is the work of the poet within each one of us. To work with every fiber of who we are, to make the reality pursuit of those visions irresistible.”

-Audre Lord

Everything is propaganda. Yes, these words are propaganda. Propaganda is defined by Merriam-Webster as: “the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person. 3 : ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one’s cause or to damage an opposing cause.” So everything that we say or do is some form of propaganda. What you wear…


Without education, people will accept anything. Without education, what you’ll have is neo-colonialism instead of colonialism like you have now. Without education, people don’t know why they’re doing what they’re doing, you know what I mean? You might get people caught up in an emotionalist movement, might get them because they’re poor and they want something and then if they’re not educated, they’ll want more and before you know it, we’ll have Negro imperialism.

— Fred Hampton

Without proper political education, the people will never be free; that is what Chairman Fred Hampton taught me. As I learned that I…


Black Power is Pan-Africanism! Free The Continent & Free The People!

It is a level of resistance that we must begin to look for among our people. Pick up that thread and do what has to be done so that our people will survive. Three things. First and foremost: he has been able to make us hate each other. He has transplanted that hate and the love for each other for a love of his country… HIS country. We must begin to develop number one — and this is the most important thing we can do as a people — we must first develop an undying love for our people… If…
