    BLACK people  who served time for Crime, still paying the price Today when freed


    There will never be a revolutionary movement in this country that doesn’t fully unleash and give expression to the sometimes openly expressed, sometimes expressed in partial ways, sometimes expressed in wrong ways, but deeply, deeply felt desire to be rid of these long centuries of oppression [of Black people]. There’s never gonna be a revolution in this country, and there never should be, that doesn’t make that one key foundation of what it’s all about.

    Bob Avakian, Chairman of the 
    Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, 


    A growing number of states are pushing inmates out of prison in early release programs designed to reduce overcrowding and save money. But faced with a tight job market and few employers willing to hire someone with a criminal record, many former inmates are likely to end up right back behind bars.


    Last month, California began releasing prisoners deemed at low risk for re-offending. Colorado, Oregon, Kentucky and Connecticut, all wracked with budgetary issues, have instituted similar moves as a way to cut costs, while others, including Michigan and Mississippi, are considering similar initiatives.

    come and eat the trust of God's word!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    in The Bible

    We must train ourselves to think like Christ, if we are to be like Christ. Jesus Christ came to this earth and left Heaven and all its glory. On earth, Jesus made Himself nothing. While He was on earth, He was a Servant. Here on earth, He humbled himself to the degree that He without reserve died a criminal's death. And He did all this for us.When we see the need to serve others, we will look into the concerns of others, there needs to be the utmost subtlety. Everyone at one time or another has wanted something kept secret. When we visit the sick, as we show a tender kindness for them, we shouldn't be too precise in being inquisitive into their medical disorders or their emotions. Circumstances may be such they prefer not to speak about. We should allow them to tell their own stories.

    Mother’s Milk #SamiyyahSaafirMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Family

    Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.


    While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow.  It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.


    Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.


    A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty.

    "Help4Men Radio Special" Racial Profiling Against Black Men in America

    in US Government

    Every African-American male in this country who drives a vehicle, or has traveled by bus or plane, either knowingly or unknowingly has been the victim of racial profiling by law enforcement officials. Indeed, African-American males are disproportionately targeted, stopped, and searched by law enforcement officials based on race and gender. Those responsible for enforcement of public laws view African-American males as criminals. Unfortunately, the American justice system has condoned, supported, and in some instances encouraged such actions by law enforcement officials to stop, arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate African-American males. On the basis of race and gender, governmental officials have devised a profile of the typical criminal: black and male.


    The term driving while black has been used to describe the practice of law enforcement officials to stop African-American drivers without probable cause. The practice particularly targets African-American males. African-American males are not only singled out while driving, but also while schooling, eating, running for political office, walking, banking, serving as a juror, getting a taxi, shopping, and just being black and a male. The mere fact of being black and male in America is sufficient cause for governmental and private law enforcement officials to abridge the rights of African-American males. This is not to suggest that law enforcement officers can never consider race when performing their job. Just the opposite, where a witness identifies the race and gender of a suspect, it is relevant evidence to consider in an effort to apprehend a criminal. Racial profiling, however, involves a pre-disposition held by law enforcement officers who are members of the majority, to believe that minorities, and particularly African-American males, are engaged in criminal activities; therefore, they are stopped and searched without probable cause or reasonable suspicion.

    The Free American

    in Education

     


    America is now occupied by a foreign anti-America occupying force, DHS, that intends to oppress, tyrannize, disarm and systematically mass-murder up to 90% of all Americans. Everyday more and more basic freedoms and good American jobs are being removed from America. The very best cure is to completely decapitate the WZs from their source of FIAT Money-power by “nationalizing” the Federal Reserve System, seizing all its assets, arresting all of its Directors, trying them for RICO Financial Fraud, Sedition and Treason. And then all their holdings and gains, yes even personal gains, properties, foreign bank accounts, all assets musty be seized and clawed back including their autos, homes and personal bank accounts. All so-called American Debt and deficits must be immediately cancelled and considered null and void.


    And then DHS must be immediately put out of business with the DHS principals arrested for Treason and Sedition and foreign espionage agents against America as well as criminal RICO. The American Police must return all the Military equipment they were given back to the American Military and their operations once again be performed as “protecting and serving” the community. No new police hired without passing a basic IQ test and the brightest most honorable with high character personal ethics hired first!

    Live Chat:Pros & Cons of Religion is it a danger to society, who does it benefit

    in Music

    adapted from  MrsCammelspit


    If God is infallible, why didn't he make the people who wrote the scripture more clear about the definitive rules and guidelines? Why cause such chaos, a line in the sand even when people believe in the same root faith?


    Every religion  interpreted the bible with their own preconcieved morality" how can anyone want to be a part of something that just seems so... confusing?


    Believers consider as pros 


    - Calming the fear of death and the positivity of a new beginning after death.


    - Giving hope when you are in a place where you feel hopeless.


    - Strength to continue through harsh events through prayer and fellowship.


    - Knowing your place in life/ Being assured that you are being led positively, even through hard times.


    Closer look .... Human Rights Violations.  child abuse sexually, physically, and mentally is rampant in all religion to some extent as they form the minds to accept and believe in them. Prostitution in the Hindu culture, arranged marriages to young girls. Bodily integrity violations of baby boys and African girls entering womanhood. Not helping rape victims, even calling THEM the criminal. Deaths for being homosexual, for being a different religion, for not covering up enough or for criticizing a religion. My touch on Voo-Doo is the horrendous things they do to the Albino africans. They are essentially cut apart and cold on the black market. Mostly children.

    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author David Merkatz, he's the author of the book Wrongly Charged: A Look at the Legal System.


    This book is making quite an impact due to some of the recent  headlines dealing with police and abuse of power.


    About the book:


    What would you do if you were arrested and wrongly charged with a crime? It can happen in the blink of an eye. It’s not supposed to happen in the United States, but it can at any time. After being advised by his attorney in 2013 that his new marketing strategy was legal, Florida locksmith David Merkatz was shocked to learn he was under criminal investigation. Then he was arrested and charged with money laundering and an organized scheme to defraud. With the flip of a switch, he was facing a 20-year prison sentence. He was terrified. Life as he knew it was over, and it happened in an instant. But David Merkatz was determined to fight back.


    About the author:


    Until 2013, David Merkatz made his living as a locksmith in Coconut Creek, FL. Life, he thought, was pretty good. While there were some trademark issues with his business, he was making a living and enjoying his life. That all changed August of 2013, when police arrested David Merkatz and charged him and two of his fellow locksmiths, Peter Lomagistro and Joshua Levy, with a host of crimes ranging from money laundering to petty theft.
