Rapper T.I. Speaks on Racial Injustice & Police Brutality

 

Amid the continuing national outcry over the police killing of George Floyd, the police are still killing unarmed black people. Most recently, Rayshard Brooks was murdered by an Atlanta police officer. Civil Right Activist, Students, Mothers of slain children, and concerned citizens took to the streets to bring awareness to unsolved cases of police murders in Atlanta.

Activist Marcus Coleman and a host of young social justice warriors lead the protest to seek justice for Kendrick Johnson, Jamarion Robinson, Shali Tilson, Anthony Hill, Oscar Cain and so many more victims murdered by Atlanta Police. Rapper T.I. joined the march to the Capitol and spoke about the need to keep the pressure on the establishment and how we forced them to acknowledge the pain and suffering we experienced for years. He ended with advising the protestors of their consumer power and to no longer spend money outside of the community. Rapper T.I was joined on stage by Mysonne and Tamika Mallory of Until Freedom.

 

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.

Many watched the protest and demonstration play out on CNN and suddenly things got violent. Few know the root cause except those on the frontline. 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.

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.
