We recently realized that it’s been five years since Dame Dash’s iconic interview on The Breakfast Club. In this interview he introduced the hip-hop world to several concepts and philosophies that are routinely ignored by large media platforms like entrepreneurship, ownership mentality, sticking together, and hustling for your last name so your children can have it better than you did. Although he was met with a lot of initial resistance for his approach and blunt honesty, time has revealed the truth in his words. In this episode we discuss how Dame Dash was right all along.

what i don’t understand is why “we” keep expecting fairness and justice on stolen land and think “we” can beg our oppressors into doin “what is right” by us….
we know there are separate laws & treatment for “us” and “them”, so why do we kept acting surprised and taken aback when shit goes left for us…. “we” know “they” want to get rid of us if they can’t profit off of us in some kind of way….
the “system” isn’t designed to benefit “us” so why do “we” kept expecting to integrate into a broken system and fix it from the insides…. u either gonna bow down or get laid down….
why do “we” trust “their” directives when time and time again, they fuck us over…. why do “we” even listen to them at all? is it because “they” taught “us” to not trust each other and to believe in a deity in “their” image to put themselves subliminally as superior in “our” heads? Even when most of “their” esoteric knowledge was taught or stolen from “our” ancestors and used to empower themselves….
Do “we” think dressing like “them” , looking like “them” or buying “their” brand labeled goods will endear them to “us” and make them like us just a little more? Or is imitation the best form of flattery and submission?
if u didn’t know, “we” ran this mudball at one time…. and some of “us” were not kind beneficent rulers…. tyrants even… and this is the key to why “we” have no friends…. no one wants us back on top of things….

Ground zero for COVID-19 is Chicago’s Cook County Jail. Hundreds of detainees and at least 200 correctional officers are currently infected. Prisoners, guards and other first responders in Chicago are without personal protection equipment (PPE)– gloves, masks and the like — making the situation even more deadly. People are dying, even though a Black owned company in Illinois literally has millions of masks available. The city, county and state refuse to talk to the owner. Continue reading →
This was some BS….. they will not let one of “us” get a mass media outlet without being compromised.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday threw out a lower court’s ruling that had given the green light to comedian-turned-media entrepreneur Byron Allen’s $20 billion racial bias lawsuit against Comcast Corp that accused the cable television operator of discriminating against black-owned channels.

Truck drivers spend a lot of time on the road and the meal options can be hit or miss. The simple act (seemingly) of finding a seasoned piece of meat can turn into an adventure, when you’re away from home. Edward Dillard has been a truck driver for almost 15 years and in that time, he experienced his share of frustrations — supporting Black owned businesses is hard enough when you’re at home and that much more difficult, when on the road. Eat Black Owned is a new website designed to solve that very problem. Continue reading →
