Today is Darren birthday… wanna drop an #update on what started out as a Darren Seals Dedication Show.

  • By Hands Up Dont Shoot


Putting that together was one of the most difficult things I ever had to do. It made me face what I put off facing for many months. His death, the circumstances in which he was killed, the fact that he wasn’t coming back and that his murderer(s) are still walking the streets. Read more…

This is so true…

We have no comprehensive plan. We do not involve all segments of our community. We wouldn’t be seeing the level activism we’re seeing if it weren’t for our young people and the least among us who rose against oppression… yet few plans are inclusive of them other than using for votes, as props, for comeuppance or for grants.

That is the reality of our situation. There has to be a fundamental shift in our thinking. We have to understand ‘the struggle’ is a marathon and not a sprint. There are no quick fixes. No feel good solutions. We are not gonna bandaid our way through this. We have to build, explore alternatives, think outside ‘the box’ and learn to throw monkey wrenches, to flip/use voting, capitalism… the various internal/external forces on the chess board to our advantage. Fam, we may not live to see the fruits of our labor but if we don’t start planting seeds today those who come behind us won’t either.

To those who say protest is the answer… we’ve been protesting since 2014 and what do we collectively have to show for it? Nothing. A few individuals came up, nonprofits profited and we’re still fighting the same battles. <br><br>This is what happens when Dems embrace the grassroots… movements are coopted, then they die.
