After all the hubbub about the Watchmen series premiere and it’s depiction of the Tulsa Black Wall Street Massacre, I figured folks needed to know it and Rosewood were not isolated events….
Atlanta Race Riot (1906)
When the Civil War ended, African-Americans in Atlanta began entering the realm of politics, establishing businesses and gaining notoriety as a social class. Increasing tensions between Black wage-workers and the white elite began to grow and ill-feelings were further exacerbated when Blacks gained more civil rights, including the right to vote.

Another example of a street organization from Chicago expanding into other things… coincidence? I think not….
Inspired by the Black Panthers, the Young Lords was a Chicago street gang-turned-national political and social action organization fighting for the liberation, self-determination and justice of Puerto Ricans, Latinxs and Third World people in the late 1960s to the mid-1970s. The members were largely the children of Puerto Rican migrants, a growing population in barrios across the Northeast who journeyed to the United States mainland in search of economic and housing opportunities. Instead of possibility, they saw poverty, discrimination, and exploitation. Continue reading

In the footage released by the Albany County District Attorney’s Office, Williams can be seen entering the market with a male companion. Williams’s companion argued with the store’s owner before they left without incident. Continue reading

In my article from a few weeks ago titled ‘Jeffrey Epstein May Still Be Held Accountable For His Sexual Crimes Against Underaged Girls,’ it was announced that the legality of the lenient plea deal received by multimillionaire Hedge Fund manager and socialite Jeffrey Epstein had been struck down:
On Thursday, February 21st, federal judge Kenneth A. Marra declared that Federal prosecutors, under former Miami U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, broke the law when they concealed a plea agreement from more than 30 underage victims who had been sexually abused by Epstein. In his 33-page statement Marra said prosecutors not only violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act by not informing the victims, but they also misled the girls into believing that the FBI’s sex trafficking case against Epstein was still ongoing — when in fact, prosecutors had secretly closed it after sealing the plea bargain from the public record.
