black people cannot create justice in our communities until We obliterate any traces of white supremacy until then we all considered slaves on a longer leash whenever you see black people with any power autonomy or independence it is because black people have been able to destroy white institutions & white governments I do believe it will take too long to infiltrate&neutralize white supremacy our power is controlling our own movements we must consider leaving the Western world & every black person moving back to Africa to contribute to ending white skin domination/white supremacy / white cultureas long as we live with them we contribute to the thief of First Nation land and resources we have a home but as refugees we need a critical look at the back to Africa movement

CultureHISTORY: The Obamas & Black History

  1. First Lady Michelle Obama at the Brown vs. Board of Education Museum, Topeka, Kansas, July 2014
  2. President Barack Obama on the Rosa Parks bus at the Henry Ford, Dearborn, Michigan, April 2012

We are living during historic times. The Obamas are changing and reclaiming black history right before our very eyes. The passage of time will only serve to elevate their legacies so, as we move through this momentous era with America’s First Black Family, be present for the journey. Future generations will ask us about Obama as we asked our elders about MLK, Malcolm and JFK. They will ask us what it felt like to live in the Age of Obama. Be a witness to history.

Every African must show his pass before being allowed to go about his business. Sometimes check broadens into search of a man’s person and belongings.
South Africa.
Ph: Ernest Cole.
1960s.
Black people were by law supposed to carry a pass book that severely limited their movements by forcing them to have one on their person when entering ‘white only’ areas.
This served as a way for the Apartheid government to ensure their segregationist policies were being adhered to by requiring black people to carry these passes at all times when outside of areas designated for black people. Each pass book also specified when, where and for how long the individual would be permitted to stay within these ‘white only’ areas. Often times, employers were responsible for providing these details. 
Pass laws were formally introduced as early as 1797 when, in an attempt to exclude all ‘Natvies’ (black people) from the Cape Colony, Irish-born British statesman and governor of the Cape Colony George Macartney introduced them to South Africa which was then a British territory.
The most notable resistance effort against Pass Laws was in 1960 with the peaceful demonstrations held in the township of Sharpeville on March 21st that year. Thousands of black people held demonstrations in Sharpeville, marching to the police station where Apartheid police forces opened fire on the crowd killing 69 people in what is now known as the Sharpeville Massacre. Anti-apartheid leader and founder of the Pan-Africanist Congress Robert Sobukwe was arrested on that day for leading the protest.
Pass laws would not be repealed in South Africa until 1986.

1986.

Children of color are old enough to face racism when they’re born. Old enough to bear the weight of stereotypes & hate before their little eyes can focus. But somehow white kids are supposed to be too delicate & too shielded to even know race exists because somehow that might hurt them. When your definition of innocent child doesn’t include my babies? I know what you’re on & I don’t have any patience for the lies you tell yourself or your children.
