  • Can A Boycott Of Christmas Gift Buying Bring Racial Justice?

    in Women

    The 20th anniversary of the Million Man March is being promoted with the words "Justice or Else!"  What's the or else? In recent speech, Minister Louis Farrakhan called for African Americans to boycott Christmas as a response to racial injustice. How can we force justice by the withdrawal of our 1.9 trillion dollars from the U.S. economy during the season most businesses depend upon for their yearly profits? Who are we hoping to hurt with our boycott? How will their financial distress lead to a change of discriminatory laws? The procecution of police who killed citizens? The passing of sensible gun laws? The release of falsely accused prisoners? Do we need to work out a specific strategy to make sure our lack of buying gifts for friends and family produces the desired effects? Will enough people participate? Do we need to tie this boycott to a specific piece of legislation? Give us your views on the meaning of "justice or else!" What threat can we collectively carry out that can force a change and bring justice

    Racial Justice is in the Best Interest of All America

    in Politics Progressive

    There's gold/goals in them there "hills" America. Come visit with. Today's show is about policing, protesting, passion, and prosperity and an uninformed public. America is in an economic boom and it is being all but hid from the public to maintain division in America. When the division in the land is healed, it brings prosperity to all America. Bringing prosperity to all America will make a liar out of a select corrupt group who have painted an ugly picture of America, and they want that picture to stand even after they have turned to dust.


    We fight wars. There will always be wars and romours of wars. We fight wars for home land safety. We fight wars for peace at home and abroad. We fight wars for equality for all mankind. So let's identify mankind


    Racial justice is in the best interest of all America!

    The Compact for Racial Justice

    in Politics

    http://www.arc.org/facingrace
    From Facing Race 2008's Plenary 3, held on Saturday, November 15. The Compact for Racial Justice offers concrete strategies and policy proposals to reverse racial disparities and move our society towards full equity, inclusion and dignity for all people. The Compact transcends talk of personal prejudice with compelling evidence of institutional racism and realistic proactive solutions. It seeks to engage a broad multiracial base of activists, opinion leaders and policymakers in making government and powerful institutions accountable for eliminating racial inequality in our schools, hospitals, courtrooms and workplaces.

    Seeking Justice: "All Lives Matter" on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    This past Friday Talib Kweli discussed his support for the Black Lives Matter Activists who interrupted Senator Sanders' speech in Seattle this past week. As has been reported this was the second time those activists have interrupted a Democratic Candidate's appearance within the last month. In recent days, these activists have shown up at a Jeb Bush appearance as well.  Their actions, while criticized heavily but Sanders' supporters particularly, have prompted candidates to adopt a racial justice platform.  This is significant as noted in Dan Johnson's recent article since they are changing the platforms of major party candidates who are running for President of the United States. A significant achievement. Instead of criticizing them we should be embracing people who are persistent in making their voices heard by any candidates. The world we live in has big money running the show so to see this type of reaction to activism is indeed beautiful. Also of note is the rift that has created between various parts of activism relevant to "All Lives Matter" and "Black Lives Matter" that needs to be corrected so we can all make sure that racial, civil and social justice are obtained in our society. Longtime Activist, Journalist, Coffee Party USA Board of Director & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo brings you "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee". On Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30 AM. Advocating engagement Bobby points out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so. Money in Politics, the Political Party Machine, & partisan blind allegiance is on full display as he advocates against the erosion of Constitutional Protections in the name of corruption & tyranny. "If we focused on following the Constitution we would solve many of the ills of our society."

    Jennifer Cobb ...and Justice for All, Inc., Aug 3, 2015

    in Politics Progressive

    Jennifer Cobb, director of "...and Justice for All" is on air Thursdays at 6pmEST at "Human Rights Demand" channel at Blogtalkradio. Call-in to speak on air at (347)857.3293. Her shows have covered:


    1) an interview with the mother of Sgt. James Brown, a battlefield veteran with PTSD who was killed in a Texas jail after serving two tours of duty in Iraq;


    2) "Rally Against in-Custody Deaths and Police Brutality at the Georgia Capitol," which Mary Neal, director of Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill arranged. 


    3) interviews with friends of a Florida inmate who put forth strong claims he was wrongfully convicted.


    4) Boycott4Justice: The concept that whereas American officials do not care about what citizens think, they do hold corporations in high regard. Therefore, Americans must enlist corporations' support for justice initiatives, which will only be done when Americans impact their profit margins with successful boycotts.


    5) Divest or Resign: The concept that decision makers are private prison and jail investors and should be forced to either divest themselves and their immediate family members of corporate stock or resign from public service.


    Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has, and it never will. ~Frederick Douglass
