Children and Weapons - Gun Violence in Amerikkka

Royta Demarco Giles was a young 8-year-old black boy who was shot and killed at his local mall in Hoover, Alabama. He along with his sister, father, and mother were in the crossfire. His death is left with no answers, and I only beg to differ if we're asking the right question. Are we questioning ourselves enough and should we reevaluate our situation with our children and weapons?

Not Relying on the PoLice at all- Family Council and My Story

The police, an institution put in place to serve and protect civilians, has proven time and time again that when they are called, they spell nothing but trouble for black, brown, and/or poor people in general. I am Tibu, a formerly homeless youth resident of Homefulness and a long time member of POOR Magazine.

Summary of the Case

Youth Poverty Skolaz Response to Billionaires Disaster Krapitalism

Bonanza is Cansa, by Kimo Umu
 
Since early January of this year, the covid-19 virus has continued to surge through the country. Many who are impacted first are the people without homes struggling to make it to the next day.
 
In the United States today 78 percent of households are living paycheck to paycheck. 20 percent of these individuals have a net worth of zero and below. I suspect this includes the homeless, impoverished and immigrants. 
 

Profile of Ziair

He was crazy in my opinion. Jumping and shaking and twitching, filled with a manic energy that was somewhat infectious, spreading throughout the room like static electricity. Shocking me and revitalizing my spirit as he continued with his introduction.
