We Will Shoot Back!

We Will Shoot Back! | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
Dr. Akinyele Umoja joined us April 12, 2013 to discuss his new book, We Will Shoot Back and the lesser known history of armed self defense in the Black American liberation struggle.
Community Village Sites's insight:

Twitter warned the nation. They kept tweeting this phrase from this book. (The dialog starts at about 8:30) Also, Minister Louis Farrakhan warned the nation. Y'all just need to listen. People said "I don't see the benefit of blocking freeways." Maybe now you see why people were blocking the freeways - to get attention about the oppression and the lack of justice and to stop the killings. If you don't know, maybe you have only been listening to White washed NPR and KQED. Instead listen to Black Agenda Radio and The Urban View on Sirius XM. Some people do not respect humanity and justice, but everyone respects power. Note this interview is from 2013

"What to the Slave is 4th of July?": James Earl Jones Reads Frederick Douglass' Historic Speech | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
In a Fourth of July holiday special, we begin with the words of Frederick Douglass. Born into slavery around 1818, Douglass became a key leader of the abolitionist movement. On July 5, 1852, in Rochester, New York, he gave one of his most famous speeches, "The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro." He was addressing the Rochester Ladies Antislavery Society. This is actor James Earl Jones reading the speech during a performance of historian Howard Zinn’s acclaimed book, "Voices of a People’s History of the United States." He was introduced by Zinn.

Community Village Sites's insight:

California doesn't like racists. And the U.S. in general doesn't like racists. The U.S. beat down Germany and their racist agenda. Trump and his supporters need to remember that as they travel from city to city.

Where’s the Diversity? Paul Ryan’s Photo with Interns Called ‘World's Whitest Selfie' 

Where’s the Diversity? Paul Ryan’s Photo with Interns Called ‘World's Whitest Selfie'  | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
Ryan's selfie with Capitol Hill interns goes viral, but not for the reason he was hoping.
Community Village Sites's insight:

Oh my. I thought this photo was fake at first. I see only one Black person, a handful of Asian people, a few possibly mixed race people, and the rest look White. If you were not sure before, Republicans are the party of the mostly wealthy and White. Republicans are people who have money, do not want it taxed and do not want government to help the impoverished. Republicans claim they do not want big government to our lives (less taxes), but they DO want big government to run big military, big police forces, big prisons, big walls, and big deportation programs - mostly with rhetoric targeting (im)migrants of color.

Actor Jesse Williams is best known for his role on the TV show "Grey’s Anatomy." In June he earned a standing ovation when he addressed the BET Awards. As he accepted the Humanitarian Award, Williams paid homage to police shooting victims, including Rekia Boyd, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice, who would have turned 14 on Saturday. "Police somehow manage to de-escalate, disarm and not kill white people every day," Williams says. "We are going to have equal rights and justice in our own country, or we will restructure their function and ours."
