Necessary Blackness Ep: 114 – Crime Bill Joe & Top Cop Kamala – What is Black America Thinking?

Joe Biden has selected Kamala Harris to be his running mate, and most people are not happy with the selection of the former prosecutor and onetime 2020 primary rival who has built a reputation as an unyielding antagonist of the Trump administration. One of the problems many Black voters have with Joe Biden is the 1994 crime bill he co-authored that led to the mass incarceration of Black Americans. With, Kamala Harris, as attorney general, she weaponized technicalities to keep wrongfully convicted people behind bars rather than allow them new trials.

Kimberly Latrice Jones: The Contract Is Broken


The young social justice warriors are amplifying their voices while demanding justice against rogue police officers and their executive shields that isolate them from being charged in the killing of unarmed citizens.

The case of Jamarion Robinson is one of many elected officials, prosecutors, and law enforcement is trying to sweep under the rug. Jamarion Robinson was shot at over 100 times and 76 bullets hit his body by US Marshals on August 5, 2016. We now know that his hands were up due to injuries that he sustained. He had 20 plus bullets in the back, someone stood over him and fired directly into him while he was down. DA Paul Howard’s office has been working on the case since his death. The US Marshals refused to talk. Best selling author and community activist Kimberly Jones speaks on how our contract with America is broken and why we must continue to fight against a system seeking to oppress and imprison us.

Necessary Blackness Ep: 107 Atlanta Uprising- Reporting From The Frontline


Martin Luther King Jr once stated in an interview, “A riot is the language of the unheard.” This was in 1966 and nothing has changed since he uttered those prophetic words. That language is being heard and spoken in just about every major city in America and has reverberated to several international countries.

Atlanta citizen quickly took to the street to protest not only the killing of George Floyd but the refusal to arrest the three officers who participated in this brutal murder, as well as only charging fired police officer Derek Chauvin with only 3rd-degree murder.

Necessary Blackness Podcast caught up with one of the front line soldiers and long time community activist Malik Muhammad to get a play by play of what really happened. Tune In and Listen.
