South-South Cooperation 2020: Soul Searching Day for Africa

Forty-two years after the adoption of the Buenos Aires Plan of action for promoting and implementing technical cooperation among countries of the global south, some progress has been made, but there is so much that needs to be done, especially in Africa. Historically, the global south has been the source for most of the resources and materials that have been used to develop and sustain the economies of the industrialized global north. The consequence of this being the global south remaining in an underdeveloped or developing state, while societal benefits go almost exclusively to countries in the northern hemisphere.  Forty-two . . .

Atlantan Wakandism: Why Black Capitalism must be Challenged

The Black Bourgeoisie class  sells the idea of Atlanta as being some sort of mythological negro-town, where all your dreams come true and you will be safe from poverty and downward mobility caused by capitalist stratification. The smoke and mirrors of a Black paradise that they offer is what I call Wakandism. It is a belief that a place where some Black people have success offers a model to be followed while ignoring the struggle of Atlanta’s predominantly Black working class. . Most often wakandism is applied to Atlanta as an outlier for the United States since a Black capitalist . . .

Why Misogynists Make Great Informants

This piece on gender violence in social justice movements was originally published in make/shift magazine’s Spring/Summer 2010 issue and written by Courtney Desiree Morris. In January 2009, activists in Austin, Texas, learned that one of their own, a white activist named Brandon Darby, had infiltrated groups protesting the Republican National Convention (RNC) as an FBI informant. Darby later admitted to wearing recording devices at planning meetings and during the convention. He testified on behalf of the government in the February 2009 trial of two Texas activists who were arrested at the RNC on charges of making and possessing Molotov cocktails, . . .

On Breonna, Oluwatoyin, & Posthumous Iconography Of Murdered Black People

The surviving family and friends of the dead are constantly accosted by aesthetically pleasing merchandised images of the people violently abducted from their lives. In the hands of social media, and opportunists, this tradition becomes another installment of a Ford-assembly line-like process of transforming a murdered Black person into a ubiquitous trademarked symbol of social justice. . . .

The Liberal Disingenuosness of 'Trump's America'

The Liberal Disingenuosness of ‘Trump’s America’

By attributing fascism and the conditions of an overzealous militarized police force solely to Donald Trump, we ignore the trajectory of how we have arrived at a Trump presidency. Furthermore, an obsessive fixation on Trump and not the system, at large, makes us complicit in the work of encouraging fascism. . . .

OnlyFans is on the RISE, but Sex Work is still despised!

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.  Some haters made the allegation that this post was harmful to minors, which we couldn’t allow ourselves to be offended by.  Since most minors on Instagram follow the likes . . .

How White Nationalism Put You in Student Loan Debt

Yes, it is economics, you’re right, but in the US how they are able to get you to vote against yourself is racism (well white people). After the Civil Rights’ Movement Black and Latino people started making real progress in higher education. From 1970 to 1980 college graduation rates for both groups almost doubled. Enrollment peaked in 1980 and then began to fall. During the mid 1980s, there was a huge decrease in federal dollars utilized to support college students. This was a 180 degree change in policy when compared to the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s and the govt provided . . .
