The Nuclear Lunch

Since my heart attack I have been having trouble breathing. I was used to walking unlimited 3-4 miles a day. Now I can’t walk a half a block without stopping. My heart attack was 2 years ago.Today I had a Nuclear Stress Test. Let me explain what a Nuclear Stress Test is: Nuclear Stress Test.

Dylann Roof is condemned

Dylann Roof has been found Guilty of the murders of 9 Charleston, South Carolina church goers who he murdered in cold blood at The Emanuel A.M.E church, one of the oldest historically black churches in America , during a Bible study.

Roof was found guilty on 33 charges under the US Federal hate crime bill. They are as follows:

  • Hate Crime Act Resulting in death [9 counts]

  • Hate Crime Act Involving An Attempt to Kill [3 counts]

Dead men tell no tales

In the aftermath of Oakland ,Ca. Ghostship fire many questions still remain. The two biggest of course are how did it happen and could it have been prevented ?

As fire investigators continue to look for clues, one puzzling question that still remains is, of the 36 people who died and in the sea of faces posted in papers and the internet, why wasn’t a single one of them black ?

Water protectors from DAPL and beyond.

Youth Skolaz Have A Dream... Dedicated to Dr Martin Luther King Jr & All Revolutionary Ancestors

Editors Note: The following Dreams were created by students of Deecolonize Academy's Revolutionary Journalism Class in honor of revolutionary ancestor Dr Martin Luther King Jr and his famous Speech " I have a Dream".  (All of our youth skolaz are fluent in Ebonics and don't power the kkkolonizers language any higher than their indigenous languages- even though they do know so-called "English" well and know how and when to code-switch when necessary- however in this piece they chose to publish their pieces in their favorite tongues)

The King & His Unsung Heroes & Sheroes (Poem) After Reading Deric Gilliard's book, Unsung Heroes and Sheroes who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King

Every year during MLK month I reread two books, The King & His Unsung Heroes & Sheroes & Why We Can't Wait.  I wrote this poem years ago.

 

We are all connected from Standing Rock to Oakland

“This is like the Santa Rita Bus,” I whispered as I looked over at my comrade revolutionary Aunti Frances Moore’s terrified eyes. We’ve both ridden the bus that carries homeless and other “criminal” people to Santa Rita County Jail. I could barely utter a whisper, lost in my own fear of incarceration and endless criminalization as an unhoused poor person in stolen Turtle Island.
