Coding While Black: Black Tech Professionals Share

I ain’t been corporate in over a decade but I definetly saw a lot of this… even with my “light skin” privilege…. and why I am not surprised the Nigerian claims racism hasn’t affected him while noting racists events…smmfh

“Until my tenure at Twitter, I strongly resisted being ‘the Black guy,’” writes Mark S. Luckie, an author, digital strategist, and former Twitter employee. “I didn’t want to be the sole representative of a multifaceted group of people or be siloed into focusing on Black issues.” Continue reading

How lynching was used by whites to destroy competition from black business owners

This is just one example of YT not wanting a level playing field because they know we will take it all back in spades. They remember when we stood on their backs like they do us currently…. and then act as if we are the inferior ones…

To the editor: Many sincere white Americans have raised the question of why African Americans have failed to become as successful as other people of color, especially recent immigrants to United States. The article on lynchings sheds some light on the subject.

The story of the murder of Elmore Bolling, a successful black businessman, by his jealous white neighbor in Alabama in 1949 was just a glimpse into a pattern of racist violence that terrorized African Americans for generations. On a broader scale, during the Jim Crow era white Americans destroyed prosperous black businesses in many communities. Continue reading

A History Of Black Cowboys And The Myth That The West Was White

I knew this already which makes the whole “Cowboys & Indians” real self hatred when u realize BOTH were Afrikan descendants…

A quick internet search of “American cowboy” yields a predictable crop of images. Husky men with weathered expressions can be seen galloping on horseback. They’re often dressed in denim or plaid, with a bandana tied ‘round their neck and a cowboy hat perched atop their head. Lassos are likely being swung overhead. And yes, they’re all white.

Contrary to what the homogenous imagery depicted by Hollywood and history books would lead you to believe, cowboys of color have had a substantial presence on the Western frontier since the 1500s. In fact, the word “cowboy” is believed by some to have emerged as a derogatory term used to describe Black cowhands. Continue reading

White People Who Committed Heinous Crimes And Didn’t Go To Prison

.White-Privilege-AMEX

One of the most glaring examples of racism in this country is the corrupt criminal justice system. White people can many times commit violent crimes with little to no punishment, especially compared to their Black counterparts. This year alone, people have been mortified after seeing freedom secured by the likes of former Pittsburgh police officer Michael Rosfeld, who killed 17-year-old Antwon Rose by shooting him in the back, and Zoe Reardon, the 18-year-old who killed three people with her car, including a three-month-old baby. Now, Shane Piche, 26, who admitted to raping a 14-year-old girl, will also not serve a milli-second in prison despite being convicted for the heinous crime. Continue reading

Facebook’s Secret Censorship Rules Protect White Men From Hate Speech But Not Black Children

I could’ve told them that…..

In the wake of a terrorist attack in London earlier this month, a U.S. congressman wrote a Facebook post in which he called for the slaughter of “radicalized” Muslims. “Hunt them, identify them, and kill them,” declared U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins, a Louisiana Republican. “Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.” Continue reading

The Secret to Keeping Black Men Healthy? Maybe Black Doctors – The New York Times

Why would we listen to anyone else but us when it comes to the health of us?? We have no allies and even some of “us” mean us no good…

Black men have the lowest life expectancy of any ethnic group in the United States. Much of the gap is explained by greater rates of chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease, which afflict poor and poorly educated black men in particular.

But why is that? Lack of insurance? Lack of access to health care? Continue reading

Black & Brown unity huh?? yeah we have no allies… all we got is us…. I’m not saying people of other backgrounds can’t help us but keep an eye on em at all times…. at lot of them are ‘us’ but rather claim European than Afrikan which says loads about their mindset…
