I’m From Oak Park

I’m from the Blackest neighborhood in Sacramento. Every Black person in Sacramento is related to someone from my hood. No matter where they grew up.  They done took our neighborhood, chopped it up into sections, and are now trying to dilute it, capitalize off of it, exploit it, and white liberalize it.  Everyone is just […]

Black Capitalism

  Capitalism is the social system which now exists in all countries of the world.

How Come I Can’t Act Mad?

“A riot is the language of the unheard.  -Martin Luther King, Jr.” Hmmph! By now you know about Trayvon Martin, and how his murderer George Zimmerman, was found to be “not guilty.” It gets pretty redundant, typing out all of the reasons he should have been found guilty. Discussing how dumb and/or racist the jurors […]

Negrophobia

I wrote a piece called Negrophobia a while back but it vanished into the interwebs somewhere so I am going to try this again. I previously talked about a woman who was vital to the woman’s suffrage movement. She fought hard for women’s rights. She was inspired by even the thought of blacks in America having any […]
