Why I Can’t Celebrate Kwanzaa

This is pretty much how I feel… even though I ain’t much for celebrations and all that…. we can party when the war is won…

 

I don’t do Kwanzaa. I just don’t. I never have, and the very thought of it evokes some difficult memories and feelings for me.

It’s not the holiday’s religious trappings or its Afro-syncretic fusion of Jewish menorahs, Swahili words, Kemetic, Christian and other rituals. I understand people do have a perfect human right to adopt or make up the cultural and religious practices that suit them. Rastafarianism, Voudon, Santería, and Candomblé all borrow from multiple traditions, as does Islam from Judaism and Christianity, and Christianity from Judaism, Greek and Roman sources, and so on. So I have no quarrel whatsoever with those who celebrate and find value in Kwanzaa.

On the 33rd episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with rapper, actor, producer, director, writer, sports league founder, and all-around legend among legends: Ice Cube. The conversation covers a multitude of subjects and starts at the beginning — with the story of Cube growing up with aspirations of playing pro-football before transitioning into one of the most respected, prolific lyricists of all-time.

Why the creeping militarisation of our police has experts worried

From “Down Under” but they speak on all the English speaking countries militarizing…. funny how YTs notice it now when it’s been an occupying army in the hood since slavery was ended….

Australian police are increasingly being “militarised”.

Front-line officers in Queensland and Victoria, and specialist units across the country, are being trained in military-style tactics and thinking. Continue reading

Chicago Cops Use Social Media to Track Grieving Families of Gunshot Victims

Only naive people are surprised…..

It was below freezing in Chicago on December 12, 2017 when a 23-year-old man was fatally shot in the abdomen while standing on the sidewalk. In the days following the victim’s death, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) gathered information about the victim on social media. Documents obtained by OneZero indicate that the CPD also went one step further, collecting social media content from individuals who were publicly mourning and grieving for the loss of the 23-year-old man. “I can’t stop crying…” one of the posts collected by the CPD reads, “why would this happen.” Continue reading

How The 1919 Chicago Race Riot Created Black Street Gangs

It’s a reason gangs started in Chicago….

On Sunday, the highly-anticipated HBO series Watchmen set the internet ablaze with America’s shocked reactions to a little-known incident frequently called the Tulsa Race Riots. The bombing of Black Wall Street is common knowledge to a large percentage of black folks (we’ve written about it at least 20 times, including here, here and here), but apparently it’s news to a lot of people who prefer a whitewashed, sanitized version of American history.

Chicago’s finest at work…. corrupt ass bastids… this is the story of just 1 and how he tore apart a neighborhood and families…

Chicago Police Detective Reynaldo Guevara is accused of framing at least 51 people for murder. When a group of mothers, aunts and sisters found that no officials — not the state’s attorney’s office, not the mayor’s office — wanted to take up their cause, the women went in search of justice themselves. Next week a man convicted in one of Guevara’s most dubious cases will be in court for what could be his last chance at freedom. Will prosecutors continue fighting to keep Roberto Almodovar behind bars? Continue reading
