It was yesterday but so what. Malcolm X quotes mean just as much now as they did 50 years ago "Concerning nonviolence: It is criminal to teach a man not to defend himself, when he is the constant victim of brutal attacks. It is legal and lawful to own a shotgun or a rifle. We believe in obeying the law." "It doesn't mean that I advocate violence, but at the same time, I am not against using violence in self-defense. I don't call it violence when it's self-defense, I call it intelligence." "Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today." "Look at yourselves. Some of you teenagers, students. How do you think I feel and I belong to a generation ahead of you - how do you think I feel to have to tell you, 'We, my generation, sat around like a knot on a wall while the whole world was fighting for its hum an rights - and you've got to be born into a society where you still have that same fight.' What did we do, who preceded you ? I'll tell you what we did. Nothing. And don't you make the same mistake we made...." "Our objective is complete freedom, justice and equality by any means necessary." "The day that the black man takes an uncompromising step and realizes that he's within his rights, when his own freedom is being jeopardized, to use any means necessary to bring about his freedom or put a halt to that injustice, I don't think he'll be by himself." "If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it is wrong to be violent defending black women and black children and black babies and black men, then it is wrong for America to draft us, and make us violent abroad in defense of her. And if it is right for America to draft us, and teach us how to be violent in defense of her, then it is right for you and me to do whatever is necessary to defend our own people right here in this country." "I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color." -Malcolm X chakabars: Today is the 52nd anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X. He lost his life fighting for justice and equality in America. It was yesterday but so what.

Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts- blogged by @Peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know DonyaleLuna was the black woman to cover HarpersBazaar and VogueUK ? Donyale Luna was the first black model who really began to change things that enabled more diverse beauty paradigms to break through. She was discovered on a Detroit street in the same year as the Civil Rights Act, which prohibited discrimination based on race, colour, religion or national origin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Donyale Luna was very tall and slender, and had the most incredible bone structure. At the age of 18 she was introduced to Nancy White in NYC. White was so impressed by the young beauty that she immediately had her sketched by an illustrator, and the result ran on the cover of the January 1965 edition of Harper's Bazaar , the first ever to feature a black model. That opened more doors for the model. She made history again on March 1966, when she became the first black model to feature on the cover of British Vogue in a stylish, Picasso-influenced composition shot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Due to her drug addiction, her career was cut short by an accidental heroine overdose. Donyale Luna has opened many doors for all the great models today and will always be remembered for accomplishments. bablackhistory blackhistorymonth: OOM Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts- blogged by @Peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know DonyaleLuna was the black woman to cover HarpersBazaar and VogueUK ?

I'm sure many people were surprised at the comments made by this man . He appears to be Polynesian and acknowledges he is an ethic minority yet he still held racist views against blacks in general. This phenomenon is more common than one might think. I grew up with neighbors that were from Honduras and El Salvador in New Orleans and we got along great. Yet as I got older an traveled more I started to see how Dominicans treated Haitians , how Cubans treated blacks in Miami . Wherever Hispanics had a ethic majority they were just as racist if not more than whites in some cases . They will practice housing and employment discrimination on Jim Crow levels if possible. Black people are some of the most loving and supportive people willing to show empathy and ride for people that would exploit them in a heartbeat. It's not just Hispanics, Jews , Arabs and , Asians behave in the same manner whenever possible. Black people are the mules of society and the black woman carries the largest of the burden . Many ethic minorities may have a black friend or spouse but still view the race as a whole as inferior . I'm sorry for pointing this out but I felt it needed to be said . 17thsoulja BlackIG17th Lastly even some Caribbean and African blacks don't like African Americans. The black American is truly culturally alone in the world. Isolated by design forced to assimilate simply to survive. OrphanedAfricans: MOST RACIST MOMENT worthy review.com ON TV EVER!

Banks such as Wells Fargo make millions of dollars out of the immigrant community especially undocumented immigrants who are allowed to open checking and savings accounts. Wells Fargo willingly accepts and uses our hard-earned money, but refuses to give us loans or lines of credit when we need them? SMH Mitzie Perez is one of the few courageous DACA-recipients who decided to file a lawsuit against Wells Fargo for denying her a student loan. Even though she meets all of the requirements, Wells Fargo denied her application because she's not a US citizen. "The lawsuit seeks class-action status on behalf of other DACA recipients who have been denied loans by Wells Fargo. Tom Saenz, president and general counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, said it was too early to know how many people might qualify."

House rolls back rule restricting gun sales to severely 🤤 mentally ill (CNN) The Republican-led House voted Thursday to repeal an Obama-era Social Security Administration regulation to keep people with severe mental illnesses from buying guns. The vote was 235-180. "The Social Security Administration not only overstepped its mission with this regulation, it discriminated against certain Americans with disabilities who receive Social Security benefits. The agency should be focused on serving all of its beneficiaries, not picking and choosing whose Second Amendment rights to deny," said Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, who chairs the Ways and Means Committee.Democrats complained that repealing the rule, which was adopted in the waning days of the Obama administration, would lead to more gun violence. "The American people and the families that are being hurt day after day by gun violence - they deserve some due process too," said Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas. Republicans are using the Congressional Review Act to roll back all manner of regulations put in place by Obama before he left office. The Senate is expected to pass the National Rifle Association-backed measure soon and President Donald Trump is expected to sign it. 17thsoulja BlackIG17th: Trump did what????? Thats crazy.

Former President Barack Obama offers his first opinion on current President Donald Trump since leaving office. In a statement from his spokesperson, Kevin Lewis, Obama stated he “fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion,” and is “heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,” continuing that “all Americans have a responsibility to be the guardians of our democracy - not just during an election but every day.” Obama’s words were in reaction to President Donald Trump’s muslimban, temporarily banning immigration into the United States from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia. Former presidents are typically careful not to engage their successors. For example, President George W. Bush remained relatively silent throughout Obama’s eight year legacy. Obama’s recent statement was a strong notice that he will remain outspoken on politics despite peacefully turning over his position.: POLITICS OBAMA SPEAKS OUT Jan. 30 Former President Barack Obama offers his first opinion on Trum p's presidency Former President Barack Obama offers his first opinion on current President Donald Trump since leaving office.
