The Battles Ahead

It is not enough to just say we need to abolish the police, we must abolish the state as well.

The Hierarchy of Violence

As the country debates whose lives matter, the prisons and cemeteries are filled with the ones who don’t. White armed men continue to commit arsons and mass shootings, seizing land with their weapons never to be labeled terrorists. This, along with a government that is suffocating the non-white world, filling their skies with drones that in a moment’s notice can be made to hone in on whomever has been labeled an enemy combatant or a terrorist.

No Leaders, No Masters: We Must Liberate Ourselves

As we move forward it is important that we reflect on our immediate history and whether the tactics that have been used are ones that support us towards our liberation. The role of hierarchy in black movements often reinforce systems of oppression that many of those are fighting against.

The New Hip Fascist State

“In this time of highly propagated media you could probably market Fascism as something fashionable and chic. The public would eat it up.

As people begin to ask themselves how we can make this movement sustainable we must take into account the various layers of our struggle. We must make sure that we are working towards more than just momentary change, but for true liberation of all black people.

They Can See Your Pitch Forks

It would appear as if the ruling class has had a change of heart and decided to spread some wealth our way. Recently, Starbucks announced that they would start paying their employee’s higher… Continue reading

We Buy Bikes Instead of Buying Cars

There are so many articles that have come out in the past few years that are directed at bashing millennials. These similar pieces tend to have the same distant analysis about how my generation is just a bunch of internet-selfie doobie-smokers who cant get their act together. These authors sound less like they are giving an actual critique on the millennial generation and more as if they were posting a passive aggressive Facebook status as a disappointed parent. This is the same parent that doesn’t understand why hitting the pavement to get a job now means sitting on your computer for hours, scrolling through Craigslist ads, only to finally get a reply back from one of them and have it be someone trying to scam you for your credit.
