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.

Necessary Blackness Ep: 81 – Justice For Elijah Nichols

Necessary Blackness Podcast sat down with Aunt of Elijah Nichols, Kindra Nichols for an exclusive one on one interview. This is the first time the family has spoken out about the injustice faced by their loved one. Elijah Nichols promising career as a football star was derailed after he had to defend himself at a white frat party against 3 aggressors. The 18-year old was attending college and was a proud father to a newborn baby before being handed a 45 year sentence.

The sentencing of Elijah Nichols is a tragedy and reeks with racist implication from Judge Joey Showwalter, who sentenced Dustin Lee Moore, who attended the same school, to 2 months for killing a student during a hazing. However, Elijah will have to serve a 45 year suspended sentence for defending himself against 3 white students at a frat party. Mr. Showwalter seems to always use his discretion coupled with leniency when the defendant is White but, impose the maximum amount of sentence to Black defendants. When a freshman was busted on campus for selling marijuana, ecstasy and cocaine, Mr. Showwalter used the mercy of the court despite the defendant being found with $25,000 in cash and a 9mm gun which was found during a search of his on-campus apartment.

Judge Joey Showalter is known for holding fundraisers and speaking on behalf go local and state Republican candidate and is a staunch support of President Donald Trump. Many believe the sentencing of Elijah to 45 years is symbolic to Trump being the 45th President of the United States.

We are asking for everyone to sign the petition and to help in the family fundraising efforts to bring Elijah home.

Necessary Blackness Ep: 72 Why Racism & Voter Suppression Won In The Governor’s Race In GA

Why Racism & Voter Suppression Won In The Governor’s Race In Georgia. I was a victim of voter suppression from the Suppression-In-Chief Brian Kemp under the command of the Racist-In-Chief Donald Trump. After given a provisional ballot, I learned Brian Kemp is the one who determines if it’s valid or not. Before leaving I was given a sticker, but no receipt that I submitted a provisional ballot. The government spends $30 million on stickers to give to voters. 60 million Facebook users posted selfies displaying their sticker.

In this podcast, I discuss the highly contested race, what we need to do moving forward and why voting is just one component of obtaining our liberation. Below is a video explaining my ordeal while trying to exercise my right to vote.

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!!!!
