Morning fam,<br>Circling back to local posts… Lemme say is again, I don’t like talking about local issues. People are in their emotions… they get triggered, then double and triple down on the bs and very behaviors I describe. <br><br>The majority of local leaders lost their way, are corrupt or compromised or are cowards. They don’t know how to work together or fight together. Most are fighting the same old battles with the same old enemies going back decades. The fuckery is deeply rooted. When you truly understand the dynamics of St. Louis politics you realize there will be no change with this group in power… Change starts with a complete and thorough cleaning house. Nothing will change until people decide their lives, childrens’ lives, neighborhoods and community are more important than fake black representation and instant gratification derived from protest (without a strategy, blueprint or gameplan) and clapbacks.<br><br>People don’t want to hear it. They didn’t want to hear it in 2014 and they don’t want to hear it today. They’re frustrated and need a release… wanna do what they want to do with zero regard of how it impacts our collective struggle. Fuck if it puts us in a deeper hole or sets us back decades or even generations. <br><br>This is what’s happening in St. Louis. The energy for change is there. The problem is a lack of leadership centered in black political education/revolutionary thought and history of how black movements are co-opted. This energy is exploited, diverted and misdirected by Democrats (liberals and progressives), black misleaders and nonprofits. We saw this in 2014 when the justice for Mike Brown movement was hijacked and we see it today with movements like Close the Workhouse and decreasing mass incarceration that pits this movement against black victims and their families, many of which have been waiting years for justice.<br><br>Yes, the Workhouse should be closed, but in a way that 1. actually closes the revolving door… gives people a chance at a new life, not just opening the doors and sending people black into the same environment without any assistance or resources, producing the same results 2. does not put undue burden on neighborhoods police don’t serve already dealing with high violent crime by returning criminal element back to these neighborhoods with no supervision or oversight and 3. does not sacrifice black victims in the name of decreasing mass incarceration by simply not charging the perpetrators of violent crimes and murder against black people, leaving them on the streets to commit more violent crimes against black people. <br><br>And it’s not just gun violence and police violence fam. We’re dying slowly from COVID, environmental racism, inadequate healthcare, poverty and slave labor. Dead is dead. Black lives matter depending on the manner of death.<br><br>Slogans sound good, but no one is looking at the repercussions, negatives or the adverse affects of shortsighted, reactionary feel good solutions disguised as reform. The reason, because those in high positions who advocate reactionary reform and putting carts before horses do not have to live with the consequences. They don’t live in these neighborhoods and communities. <br><br>Today we’re living with those repercussions, and the consequences of not heeding the warning from those who fought these battles before us and lessons from Ferguson.

Dr Shonna explains how Black Lives Matter has gotten people to a place where they’re responding emotionally and being reactionary, completely missing how BLM is distracting us from the real threat.

“One argument in favor of supporting the cause goes like this: Black people have experienced some of the worst treatment in United States history, and they’re still one of the most oppressed groups in the country. If they gain more civil rights, protections and respect, it’ll benefit other marginalized groups as well.” <br><br>^^^The same argument white feminists used to lure black women away from our struggle, if white women gain more rights, protections and respect, it’ll benefit other women, right? They were still making the same argument as recent as the Womens March which was riddled with allegations of racism. All black lives didn’t matter when Tamika Mallory was forced to resign for refusing to denounce Farrakhan. <br><br>”And on the other side of the debate, some people argue that other marginalized groups need to focus their energy on their own problems. “<br><br>^^^ I agree. Intersectionality does not work for black and brown people. All is does is allow white people/white orgs divert energy from our struggles to whatever issue they’re pushing and our issues never get addressed. They simply move on to the next intersectional issue and repeat the process. <br><br>All groups should put 100% of their energy into focusing on themselves and improving their conditions… then come together to fight against a mutual oppressor. Groups should work together where mutually beneficial , but no group should sacrifice their struggle for others or demand others sacrifice theirs for them in the name of intersectionality.<br><br>It’s called self preservation.

This is as good as it gets… And love the disclaimer,<br>”To be fair, BLM, M4BL, and Campaign Zero have all received corporate donations.” <br><br>”The failure of a medley of liberal mayors who have found pressure from police to be more galvanizing than that from the people who elected them opens up a new political space. To fill that space, a new movement needs organization and a program that goes beyond three-word slogans. The danger is that an #8cantwait posture of noodling with reforms and herding people into support for lackluster Democratic politicians will coopt protest energy and stave off more compelling solutions. “<br><br>The political vacuum left by such a “non-reformist reform,” also described as “starving the beast,” will be filled by very reformist reforms. For example, there are demands to cut the budgets of police departments and reallocate the money to mental health services, youth programs, and community alternatives to incarceration. There is no doubt that those funds could be used for better purposes, and the implied rebuke to police departments might encourage better police behavior. But from a reform standpoint, budget cuts are limited and, after the marches peter out, easily reversed.”

The unraveling of BLM continues… <br><br>Am I the only person who finds it ironic a movement built off black deaths, pain and suffering links up with a white woman who ran America’s only woman only ‘terror group’ but has no links to the real black grassroots? Yes, she’s been linked to black orgs back in the 70s, but in no way that would justify her presence in the struggle over lets say a Chairman Fred Hampton Jr UNLESS the fight is not really about black people. It isn’t. It’s about money fam, the money flow going in and out of Black Lives Matter, something Darren Seals and I first exposed.<br><br>”BLM has been a fiscally sponsored project of Thousand Currents, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, since 2016. What this means in practice is that BLM does not have its own IRS tax-exempt status but is operating as a “project” of an organization that does. In the case of 501(c)(3) fiscally sponsored projects, this allows for tax-deductible donations.”<br><br>Follow the money… I’ve been screaming this since Ferguson when all these out of town orgs set up shop, had Ferguson protesters launch orgs as fronts, then funnel donations meant for our movement through their organizations. <br><br>They’re doing the same thing with Biden,<br><br>”Meanwhile, in an investigation it has been found that 99.64% of the Black Lives Matter’s ‘Defund the Police’ donations go to Joe Biden via ActBlue, a Democrat fundraising platform that is the top donor to Biden for President campaign.” You should already be familiar with ActBlue from BLM’s own website. <br><br>Finally, to my ‘consider the source’ negros and honorary negros, don’t take my world. Google, then find a source you like.
