    healthy and strong, with the American Dream alive, well, and secured for future generations.

    We as Americans, are witnessing the end of our nation and its’ ability to provide stability within the world, and that if today’s Patriots do not rise to the occasion, we will lose the fight and life and the future will be dramatically downgraded."

    Social Justice: The Arousing of Warriors

    in Current Events

    In the United States of America, an international activist movement, Black Lives Matter, that campaigns against violence toward black Americans has arrived. Founder Alicia Garza summed up the philosophy saying: "When we say Black Lives Matter, we are talking about the ways in which Black people are deprived of basic human rights and dignity. It is an acknowledgement of black American institutionalized poverty  and genocide by organized state violence. It is an acknowledgment that 1 million Black people are locked in cages in this country which is an act of state violence.The movement uses of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media bringing mass attention to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the murder of  teen  Trayvon Martin. #BlackLivesMatter was voted as one of the twelve hashtags that changed the world in 2014.


     Black Lives Matter became nationally recognized during street demonstrations for 2014 killings of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Eric Harris, Walter Scott, Jonathan Ferrell, Sandra Bland, Samuel DuBose,Dontre Hamilton, John Crawford III, Renisha McBride,  and Freddie Gray. Black Lives Matter has  publicly challenge  2016 United States presidential candidates to comment on Black Lives Matter issues.  Black Lives Matter stopped a Bay Area Rapid Transit  train on  one of the biggest shopping days of the year, in order to "stop business as usual" .In December 2015, three thousand people gathered at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota   to protest the killings of unarmed black men by police. 


     Does Black Americas collectively suffer from "Stockholm Syndrome" where a hostage bonds with, identify with, and sympathize with the captor?
