Marching and protesting against social and racial injustices has become an African American staple today.  But unknown to most, Black folks putting on marches and protesting against racism is still a relatively new phenomenon. Both strategies got their start in 1955 when the human rights movement of Indigenous Negro Indians became controlled and thus, “civil.”  Before then, Indigenous people boycotted those that committed injustices against us both at the local and national level.  Today, white funded organizations with black sounding names, ranging from the NAACP to Black Lives Matter march Indigenous Afro Americans out to each newsworthy injustice and put us (mainly our women) on the frontlines.  While they reap the benefits, we mostly suffer at the hands of law enforcement and their agent provocateurs bought in to incite violence.  It’s more dangerous for some Indigenous Negro Indians who march and protest than you might think.  Protestors not only face possible jail/prison time, but also constant police surveillance while fending off the sambo cronies the cops send to burglarize and/or beat and even kill them or their family members.  What all has marching gotten us in the past 61 years we’ve been doing it?  Have there been any lasting improvements from marching?  Join me and guest Wanda Merrill as we discuss in-depth the pros and cons of marching and protesting.  It happens Thursday night at 9pm, EST.
