Reflections on the March For Justice

Even as I disembarked the subway to join the March For Justice in Washington DC on Saturday December 13 2014, I was surprised by my  overwhelming feeling of deep sadness.  As I joined the thousands on Pennsylvania Avenue, I just could not shake it. I felt too sad to even join the chants of “No justice, No Peace”, nor raise my hands to ”Hands up, Don’t shoot!” I just could not help thinking of tragedy of those victims of police killings. I was haunted by the videos of the killings.…

Hands Up - Don't Shoot

Contrary to the refrain from the tragic Ferguson, Mo., shooting of Michael Brown, we know that keeping your hands up does not mean you will not be shot. Assata Shakur had her hands up when she was shot on the New Jersey turnpike by a State Trooper, Oscar Grant was laying face down on a subway platform when he was shot in the back by a Bay Area Transit cop, Sean Bell was executed in a hail of bullets by a half dozen…

Only with demonstrations and protests do we have a voice!

 

Some people would call the demonstrators and those in support of them radical and trouble makers, but that would not at all be the truth.  Blacks have been a restrained and a controlled people in these lands and in all the lands that took Slaves to build their empires.  And since the end of Slavery, descendants of Slaves have endured pain and suffering, cruelty and endless racist acts that have been covered up or rendered nonexistent, and have been left out…

Justice Foul or Fowl

[*By Jumasa Kofi Sankofa] The election of Barak Obama to the presidency of the United States is a defining moment in the history of this country. It is supposed to signify a post racial America, where a people, despised and degraded as an inferior race, has triumphed over racial oppression. After all, one of them has been elected to the highest and most prestigious office in the land. It is supposed to signify a society’s triumph over its racist foundation,…
