When Hood Communist published a piece by the Anti- Police-Terror Project on the caravan protest for Steven Taylor, a 33-year-old Black father of three shot to death by a San Leandro police officer as he struggled with a mental health crisis in a local Walmart, the death of Ahmaud Arbery, shot to death by white vigilantes in Georgia late February, had just become a viral story. Around that same time, the death of Dreasjon “Sean” Reed, shot by Indianapolis police, was seen live on Facebook. Soon after the death of Breonna Taylor, an EMT shot multiple times by Louisville police . . .
The justice for George Floyd mobilizations today reflected the state’s worst nightmare – a multi-national and multi-racial action initiated by Black people with Black leadership. So, we say: Justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland; for our political prisoners; for the super-exploited Black and Brown working-class; for oppressed Indigenous nations; and for the millions subjected to U.S. warmongering, sanctions, and criminality. We say this to shift the focus from the individualization of this week’s rebellion back to the objective structures of white supremacist, global colonial/capitalist domination.

1. Liberating Black people from racist violence requires the complete transformation of the US as a racist, colonial state—not selective outrage at individual manifestations of racism or piecemeal reforms of police departments. 2. No act of racist violence is surprising when you realize the United States itself is a 400-year act of racist violence. From its inception the United States has been built on individuals, institutions, and states that harm Black people without repercussions or justice (see: slavery, segregation, policing, prisons, lynching, forced impoverishment, and discrimination in education, healthcare, and housing). 3. The United States = Black Death and Indigenous . . .
The Black Hammer Instagram @BlackHammerOrg recently re-shared an Instagram video of an Only Fans model and sex worker named, Jose Sanchez. Check out his work on his Instagram @ThatRicanModel and onlyfans.com/borimodel. Sanchez recently had a viral video of him jacking off in front of a mirror, made Instagram safe because the video cropped out his dick. Once the post was made the #WhiteNoise and #WhiteTears arrived at our organization’s front door.

On a daily basis, you can see very inexperienced people carrying out attacks against other people on social media. Accusations are openly made, arguments encouraged, and any and everyone who has a keyboard is able to chime in. . . .
One of the biggest issues with perceived notions of Black excellence is the ways it is contributed to uncritical perceived notions of success. There is an avoidance in acknowledging that “Black excellence” is rooted in a colonial narrative of what makes someone exceptional. Circumstantially, that perception is determined by what we deem “success”. The contradictions of Black excellence is most evident in the romanticizing of The Obamas. Barack Obama’s 8-year presidency has been a surface level achievement for the Black community based on identity reductionism. After all, he is the FIRST Black president. But a closer inspection of those 8 . . .
Article By Ahjamu Umi & Onyesonwu Chatoyer Zionism as a Political Movement First, in order for anyone to fully comprehend the contradictions that the Zionist movement presents, its essential for us to understand the difference between Zionism – a political movement – and Judaism, a faith practice. Judaism as a religion is, of course, one of the oldest forms of organized political practice known to human civilization.

This article on eco-fascism was originally posted in Wear Your Voice Humans are not the virus. We are not a sickness or a disease, and y’all should stop singing this tired refrain as we are all reeling from the global Coronavirus pandemic. With several false reports of animals flourishing as cities slow down due to quarantine recently going viral (how ironic), a concerning amount of people have responded with the sentiment that the presence of humans living and taking up space on our planet is its own type of sickness. People are even circulating an article from 2018 about the . . .
