Why should the Black man need some legislation to prove that he’s a human being when you don’t need any legislation to prove that whites are human beings?

So, I make this point because, to come right back to my initial statement at the out-start of the program: You will never get real freedom and recognition between Black and white people in this country without destroying the country, without destroying the present political system, without destroying the present economic system, without rewriting the entire constitution. It would be a complete destruction of everything that America supposedly stands for before a white man in this country will recognize a Black man as something on the same level with himself.

I don’t respect the military, I don’t respect the police, I don’t respect elected officials. I’m not gonna apologize for not supporting and respecting people who willingly partake in and benefit from oppressive, violent systems. 

My little brother, who’s in the National Guard, asked me why I never congratulated him on graduating from basic training & AIT. I changed the subject because I couldn’t tell him it was because I despise the military & was upset that he gave in to the “we’ll pay for your college”/ “we build leaders” propaganda. I just hope he never gets deployed & has to kill other black & brown people abroad.

I hate cops. I don’t trust cops.

I don’t care if your uncle is a cop.

Fuck your uncle, I hate him too.

community building for black radicals

we needed to get to create real, meaningful relationships with each other yesterday. with that being said, let’s use this post as a starting point for organizing communities of knowledge, love, and self-reliance so that we can truly begin working toward liberation through taking the steps necessary for our independence.

i fundamentally believe that the pathways towards independence and liberation have been illuminated by our intellectual ancestors. this being said, i respectfully recommend that any organizational work you pursue starts as an effort to search for the truth about our collective past, particularly when it comes to the work that has been done by black radicals to extricate our communities from the forces that incessantly oppress us.

in short, i recommend that you read these books:

Black Marxism: The Making of the Black Radical Tradition - Cedric J. Robinson

Black Reconstruction - W.E.B. DuBois

Black Jacobins - C.L.R. James

Native Son - Richard Wright

Maroon Societies: Rebel Slave Communities in the Americas - Richard Price

Africana Critical Theory: Reconstructing The Black Radical Tradition, From W. E. B. Du Bois and C. L. R. James to Frantz Fanon and Amilcar Cabral

The Wretched of the Earth - Frantz Fanon

Return to the Source: Selected Speeches - Amilcar Cabral

Assata: An Autobiography - Assata Shakur

Maybe my recommendations are pertinent to your vision, maybe they aren’t. Regardless, I hope whatever you create is truly designed to oppose capitalism and our suicidal dependence upon it. 

Please, reblog this (this is important but remember that no revolutionary shit happens on tumblr, use this as a starting point to recruit from your real communities in real life).

If you don’t see your city or a city within your reach, be the organizer/contact for your area. Communicate that by reblogging and putting your city and a link to your inbox like this:

If you hear antiblack and dehumanizing comments about Ferguson protestors and residents who’ve recently been put under police siege, (especially from your friends and family) you need to actively be correcting and exposing them to the vast array of counter information that’s been leveled in reaction to the racist depictions that these are all reckless looters.

If not, don’t come on Tumblr or go on Facebook or Twitter and put up a facade of being pro justice. It’s really easy to log onto a website with relative immunity and in political spaces that more forgiving towards anti-racist and leftist ideological stances.

But what happens when you’re met with bigotry from your own relatives and loved ones? Are you going to cower and allow that prejudice to continue?

The people of Ferguson and Black communities everywhere deserve far better solidarity than that. This isn’t a cyber aesthetic that you get to detach yourself from once you hit logoff. These are people’s lives at the mercy of a deathmongering militarized institution that serves to oppress them everyday and they deserve to have their humanity retained at all costs.

We want an immediate end to POLICE BRUTALITY and MURDER of black people.

- Point 7 of the Black Panther Party Platform and Ten-Point Program, October 1966

You see that black woman standing up there? I wonder if she was called to stand behind the governor because she’s black. I wonder if i’m supposed to think Missouri’s gov’t is pro-black because of her being stood up there with those other black men being all black and everything. I wonder if she was off the clock while she stood up there. If she was off the clock..then i wonder if she was getting paid for her time off like the guy who shot Michael 8 times. What’s that guy’s name by the way?
