“I just don’t believe that when people are being unjustly oppressed that they should let someone else set rules for them by which they can come out from under that oppression.”
– Malcolm X
If you're like most people today, you're likely seeking direction, insight, and guidance on how to end the pervasive racism that has afflicted black individuals of all ages for centuries. If you're anything like me, you're exhausted. You're exhausted by law enforcement officers, whom we pay with our taxes, being able to kill black people with impunity.
You're probably tired of an education system that continues to deprive our black children of the education they deserve, instead preparing them for a life of imprisonment. Even the US Department of Education admits that black boys and girls are targeted for failure as early as preschool.
What about the disparities in employment, housing, and healthcare? It feels as though the world is against us, and in many ways, it is. Perhaps you're tired of seeing the same sentiment expressed on social media - "We need to stick together, get organized, and unite" - without anyone taking the first step.
If any of these issues resonate with you, it's time to join us. We must unite and take control of our lives, our children's education, our community, how we're policed, and our economy. We cannot continue to beg a system that was created to oppress us to stop doing so. We can't afford to wait until it directly affects us before we take action. Join us now.
