Necessary Blackness Ep: 65 – When Boycotting Is Not Enough….

There has been a long history of contention between Korean business and Black customers and employees. Most famous was Latasha Harlins, Latasha Harlins, a 15-year-old who was fatally shot by 51-year-old Korean store owner Soon Ja Du in 1991. After a scuffle over orange juice, Du killed Harlins as she was walking away. She served no jail time. In 2018., nothing has changed my timeline and inbox is filled with incidents from all over the country. The recent assault on an elderly lady in Brooklyn, N.Y. illustrates that the Korean community does not respect black people or their spending power. A few days later, in Tulsa, Oklahoma a disurbing video was released showing an Asian beauty store owner physically assaulting a Black woman because presumably her child, walked out of the store with a keychain. The woman allegedly caught the child with the keychain and returned it. However, the man “followed her out of the store harassing her and telling her that she needed to keep a better eye on her kids.” After an exchanged of words the man punched her in the mouth leaving her bloody and crying in disbelief.

In order to put out fires you got to deal with the people who own the water….You need money to get power and you need the power to protect the money. We have the money now we need to seize the power!!!!
