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

“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:

1. Provide a comparative analysis of the Ferguson Movement and the Black Power movement, along with the colonial tactics used to subvert them.

2. Question the imposition of neocolonial leadership in Black movement spaces, and examine the impact of hyper identity politics/intersectionality on grassroots organizing.

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.”

Meet Darren Seals. Then tell me black death is not a business

This Ferguson protestor and local activist was found murdered in St. Louis last month. To the end, Darren Seals continued to call out those who exploited black suffering for their own benefit – something that didn’t always win him friends. A portrait of a city’s pain and a life cut...

Not only is Diddy’s quoting some fathom investigation nobody can verify he’s moonwalking away from his pursuit of a NFL team, get this, because the NFL oppresses black men… not because those old white NFL owners laughed him out the stadium… all it takes for us is some bs excuse and that’s what he’s giving us,<br><br>”Last month, another of Diddy’s potential ventures—owning an NFL team—made headlines when the Bad Boy boss revealed he was no longer interested in the pursuit. “I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men,” he told Big Boy. “I don’t want to be associated with telling grown ass men what they can and can’t do . . . Because I’m such an NFL fan, and I hope they do what they have to do to fix it, and I hope they re-engage my dream to want to do that.””<br><br>Wow. He didn’t walk away from the white owned machine that controls hip hop, exploits women, uses the radio to pump negativity into our communities 24/7/365… not positivity, not upliftment, but the murder of young black men that look like him. How many rappers have been murdered in the past month? He didn’t offer any guidance or insight, he’s not using Revolt TV for the struggle, to amplify unapologic black voices or to push positive hip hop. He didn’t walk away from any of it. He made millions cheating artists in the process. And gave little if anything back. <br><br>But y’all wanna believe so bad…

Not only is Diddy's quoting some fathom investigation nobody can verify he's moonwalking away from his pursuit of a NFL team, get this, because the NFL oppresses black men... not because those old white NFL owners laughed him out the stadium... all it takes for us is some bs excuse and that's what he's giving us,

"Last month, another of Diddy's potential ventures—owning an NFL team—made headlines when the Bad Boy boss revealed he was no longer interested in the pursuit. "I don't want to be associated with oppressing black men," he told Big Boy. "I don't want to be associated with telling grown ass men what they can and can't do . . . Because I'm such an NFL fan, and I hope they do what they have to do to fix it, and I hope they re-engage my dream to want to do that.""

Wow. He didn't walk away from the white owned machine that controls hip hop, exploits women, uses the radio to pump negativity into our communities 24/7/365... not positivity, not upliftment, but the murder of young black men that look like him. How many rappers have been murdered in the past month? He didn't offer any guidance or insight, he's not using Revolt TV for the struggle, to amplify unapologic black voices or to push positive hip hop. He didn't walk away from any of it. He made millions cheating artists in the process. And gave little if anything back.

But y'all wanna believe so bad...

They can get at Maxine like this, disrespect black representatives and shit on black victims, their families and our communities because they know we don't doesn't have a black media/pr/progaganda appartus like a Fox News or a Young Turks that will strike back.

We're dealing with a 24 hour news cycle. We're not gonna combat that unless/unil we build an alternative. We're not gonna have that alternative tomorrow if we don't plant and cultivate the seeds today.

The first thing the City of Ferguson did after Darren Wilson murdered Michael Brown was hire a pr firm/publicist then go on a media blitz. We been losing in the media every since.

4 years after Ferguson people like me still gotta beg y'all to help make unapologetic black media a reality.
