It is an uphill battle as a Black educator that has to deal with often white administrations and the frustrations of students. We have to do it anyway. Our youth deserve more and we damn sure must do all that is in our power to give it to them through quality education of our Black radical tradition. . . .
A Case For Impeachment Has Nothing To Do With Us
While many inside the party branded themselves “the resistance”, there were obvious disagreements on actually resisting. What Waters was (and still is) calling for is a complete removal from office, while Pelosi wanted to use “other alternatives” like subpoenas. At the time, many of the cowards democrats believed an impeachment inquiry would set a bad precedent in the future for Congress. After “The Mueller Report” ended up being the disappointment “the radical left” knew it would be, democrats seemingly went on with business as usual. hat was until whispers of a “troubling” phone call between Trump and another country’s leader made its rounds. . . .
Why Black People need Spaces Exclusively for Themselves.
I read this post a while back, Why People of Color Need Spaces Without White People. (https://arrow-journal.org/why-people-of-color-need-spaces-without-white-people/) I thought it’d be crucial to reiterate and double down on the need for Black people of melanated Afrikan descent to organize, collaborate and study together on a regular basis.

While the city watched its political representatives put on a show, they also watched another performance—- “white saviorship”. The ignorance and pervasive arrogance of the local political misleadership class in Baltimore City has apparently blown the dog whistle for conservative political pundits and followers of right-wing politics.

Failures of The US Left
Over the last year, my membership with The Black Alliance For Peace (BAP), a radical Black Led anti- war organization, has sharpened my stance on anti- imperialism. This ultimately informed my anti- war position. The “US Left” conveniently ignores that you can’t be a socialist and not also be anti- imperialist. It should be largely understood by the “US left” that fascism and capitalism rely on and support imperialism—- seeking out to exploit nations we’ve come to view as “Underdeveloped” for labor, benefiting only the most privileged few within the Western nations like the United States. The “US left must collectively . . .
The Importance of Organizing
Organize! Organize! Organize! The state of colonized African people in the United States is a dire one. Despite class contradictions within the Black community, the overwhelming majority of colonized Africans on the US are marginalized poor working class or a rising class of the unemployable. Our communities are under resourced. Our communities are plagued with wage inequality, employment discrimination, housing discrimination, being under educated and mass incarceration.
