Black People Need Survivalist Training, Not Now ... But Right Now!

By definition a Survivalist is one who prepares for possible dangers such as natural disasters, societal collapse, or nuclear war, as by stockpiling necessary supplies or acquiring survival skills.

Join Asha Zuri & Alex Primo this coming Thursday, July 16th at 9 pm EST as we take a look at a few reasons why Melanated people need to be at the head of the class when it comes to preparing for extreme events. We will also share some tips on how to survive in case something does happen that goes beyond the scope of our present system.

Survivalists point to the huge dependency on government assistance, pharmaceuticals, technology as part of their rationale for prepping. However, there is more to it. The threat of nuclear war, accidental contamination, and natural events such as hurricane Katrina are used to also justify their theories and actions.

Why should we be concerned? Well, as a group we tend to suffer the most when catastrophes happen. Our needs are often not met and our stockpiles seem to be nonexistent. Add to that the fact that many of us already live in highly volatile environments, you quickly begin to see why more of us need to learn how to prepare and deal with potential shakeups in our environment, society, or economy.
