The Road to “Liberation” is Paved with Black Male Bodies— #RemakingFerguson: A Tribute to Darren “King D” Seals; Edward Crawford; Deandre Joshua; and Josh Williams<br><br>”Through #RemakingFerguson, it is my hope to start a discussion that empowers the grassroots community, by reclaiming the narrative of the Ferguson movement, from colonial academics and bourgeois activists, and giving it back to the people of Ferguson. This will be done by approaching these writings with three objectives:<br><br>1. Provide a comparative analysis of the Ferguson Movement and the Black Power movement, along with the colonial tactics used to subvert them.<br><br>2. Question the imposition of neocolonial leadership in Black movement spaces, and examine the impact of hyper identity politics/intersectionality on grassroots organizing.<br><br>3. Challenge the prevailing corporate media narrative that three Queer Black Women are responsible for the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement, which was clearly born out of the Ferguson Rebellion.”

Video – Today is Darren Seals birthday. Sigh. Its still difficult for me to talk about Darren… I’ve been asked several times to speak… for an interview or even do documentaries. Instead I choose to focus on preserving his message and the work he and I started. <br><br>Take a minute to reflect on his words… If you really want to pay homage pick up the torch, help spread his message and expose the hijacking of Ferguson. <br><br>These forces are still at play. <br><br>”I was on that bus to nowhere for a minute. As early as we made the shift away from BLM, it’s STILL our responsibility to tell that truth and come clean before we can legitimately move forward. I urge some of y’all out there to do the same so WE CAN GET TO THIS WORK. #noshameinthetruth #stopcaping”. – Brian Taylor, Mass Action for Black Liberation (Formerly Black Lives Matter Cincinnati)

Take a minute to reflect on his words... If you really want to pay homage pick up the torch, help spread his message and expose the hijacking of Ferguson.

These forces are still at play.

Anatomy of a Movement Squandered: The Hijacking of Ferguson

  • By Hands Up Dont Shoot

Anatomy of a Movement Squandered: The Hijacking of Ferguson is a digital footpath that tells the true story of the cooption of the movement for justice for Michael Brown and the parties that were complicit, how “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” transitioned into “Black Lives Matter” and how the assassination of Darren Seals sparked a civil war with the movement for black liberation that spread across the urban enclaves throughout the country.

A lot of what will eventually be exposed could have been avoided had people listened to warnings about these folks in the beginning. Truth always comes to light. Most of the the time, by the time such things come to full light, it is too late to do anything about it. The damage has been done, but we can use the info so we won’t be duped in the future and we have to ensure we teach our children about the treachery and treason so they fall for the same nonsense.” – Adofo Minka Fortunately this is one of the times we can do something about it. Expose and make them examples of what happens to those who exploit black deaths, pain and suffering.

I’m not popular in a lot of movement spaces because I put out the call for transparency and accountability, won’t ‘go along to get along’, won’t cape for black misleadership and I talk about the exploitation and fuckery within that is swept under the rug. Most of these folks are not who you think they are. You forget (or in most cases), don’t know who they were before Aug 9, 2014… you only know the polished version that’s been propped up and presented to you the past 4 years. When the truth starts to come out… AND THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT, like one victim’s mother cautions, “A lot of you will be hurt, but not surprised.”

Low self esteem is the 1 of the 3 that hurts us most, it make us feel inadequate, hopeless and stuck. It is the reason we accept crumbs, low hanging fruit and low expectations. It is the reason we live vicariously through black faces in high places who work against our best interest. it is the reason a lot of blacks subscribe to ‘white makes right’…and cape for black misleadership… the reason many of can’t imagine black centered solutions, especially those that do not include or are funded by white people. It is the reason we stay the course, the reason we march, beg, protest and vote instead of exploring alternatives. It is the reason we accept excuses, empty promises and continue to go through the motions expecting different results. Low self esteem makes us believe the possible is impossible.
