RBG| Assata Speaks, LIKE IT IS With Gil Noble
Kim Jones • 17 days ago The issue of police brutality and the over policing in our communities will never be resolved until issues of violence, poverty and hopelessness are resolved. The police do what they want because we are not united and we do not fight back and demand our rights. During harder times than this- the Civil Rights movement, black people spoke with one voice and took heat, threats and the lives of some to get voting and civil rights. Today too many of us are broken and have given up. White supremacy and racism is still an issue and we have to start fighting back. Black men and women need t come together and unite, I see us on the streets of Ferguson but where are the white, asian and latino people that we elevate so much. It is time to grow up and put our agenda for equal rights front and centre and that means getting the President to act. ____________
Kim Jones • 20 days ago There has to come a time when we stop chasing after white acceptance and stand on our own two feet. Self hatred and a lack of self respect is killing the black community. We need to spend time uplifting ourselves and building up our own self worth not depending on white people. _________________
Kim Jones • 2 months ago You need to educate yourself. The poorest most welfare and food stamp dependent states that pay the least tax dollars to the government but need the most federal government assistance are all Republican led states-Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina. Poor Republican whites are the moochers and takers that your own party leadership talks about. Democrats have tried to push social equality, fair pay, minimum wage, voting and civil rights that help the poor the most. You need to look at the GOP party leadership that does not want to implement Obamacare, expand Medicaid, cut food stamps, stop unemployment benefits-how is that helping poor white people. _____________________
Kim Jones • 2 months ago That should be the only issue for Conservatives. I know the right wing members of the Supreme court hope to help Republicans but this will backfire. Women, progressives and unions will be energized come November for the mid terms which would likely not have happened.
Kim Jones • 3 months ago I laugh so hard at Republican hypocrisy yet again. Having the nerve to play the "this is all Obamas fault card " for every Bush/Cheney mess is so desperate. We remember that Bush/Cheney/Powell/Rice lied to the American people abut WMDs in Iraq and led us in to a futile, inept. illegal war that should never have happened. Thousands of our troops, thousands of civillians did die for NOTHING. This war should never have started and their has been internal turmoil in Iraq ever since. Bush signed a withdrawal agreement in 08 and Obama tried to get Maliki to agree to some US troops staying which was declined by the Iraqi government.
Kim Jones • 3 months ago FIRSTLY TEEN PREGNANCIES IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY HAVE BEEN CUT BY 50% IN THE PAST DECADE. SECONDLY GRADUATION RATES FROM SCHOOL AND COLLEGE FOR BLACK GIRLS IS AT ITS HIGHEST LEVELS. PLEASE GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT. WHO RUNS THIS SITE THE KKK-WHAT BLACK SITE WOULD HAVE A STORY FROM THEBLAZE WHICH IS A RACIST WEBSITE RUN BY GLEN BECK. PLEASE STOP SHOWCASING INFO FROM RACISTS.
Kim Jones • 3 months ago Black voters were diverse until the Republicans decided on a racist Southern strategy. No Black person would support the GOP when it embraces birthers, the Tea party, fox news, Ted Nugent, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck and assorted bigots.
Kim Jones • 4 months ago Bill O'Reilly is a racist scumbag. He is a typical Right wing Fox news hate monger. They cannot bear to see any black person get ahead or be prominent. He can barely hide how much he hates Beyonce. Bill sticks to his ignorance and false facts to hate on Beyonce. Teen pregnancies are down in all communities and down by 51% in black America. Teen girls are graduating from high school in record numbers. Black girls are entering college and graduating in record numbers. It never happens on Fox that they use facts to back up their foolish points.
