Three University Alba students attacked by Whites

This story is just sad all around. Three young women beaten by white men and white women and no one helped them. This took place on a bus and people were more obsessed with recording the beating and telling them to shut up. I am beyond angry like what the heck? I am tired of this. The police officers did not care, the school did not care until the story got social media traction. My anger stems from the fact that no one helped these black women and these women were attacked for their race and gender.

No one sends their children to a school anywhere and expects to hear about them being assaulted. No one sends their child to school and think they are far from safe. Universities already do not have a good statistic on the violent and sexual assaults that take place on their campuses, they put the schools image ahead of the safety of the students who make them money. The Sunny Alba sent out some ridiculous lets get together letter out with some political correct garbage. I am thoroughly annoyed with all of this and people think the younger generation is somehow better, this proves they are not. There are still racist whites who find pleasure in this type of savage behavior, attacking black women, black girls, and recording it and probably laugh about it. The investigation should not even take long, they should be found, round up, and hauled off to jail. The white girls involved as well, feminist sisters my behind, also need to be round up and hauled of to jail. Everyone needs to be jailed, terminated, and have their life ruined.

Dambe

According to Slate, “Dambe was historically practiced by the Hausa butchers’ guild around harvest or festival time and was considered to be a test of bravery, a rite of passage for marriage, or preparation for war.” The west African boxing style is extremely popular in Nigeria, southern Niger and Chad, where boxers fight with one hand. The boxer’s strong hand is covered in a wrap and called the spear. The other hand is free and called the shield. Kicking allowed as well. Each match has three rounds and the boxers must knock their opponent out within that time frame.

I don’t know if I can post the whole article so I will post the beginning half and link to the rest. May the soul of this man and other survivors who have passed rest in peace, this is an important part of history that is not mentioned, but did happen. It’s a shame that they have not received reparations or justice, but we must keep their memory alive and bring them justice ourselves, because this cannot be swept under the rug any longer.

Wes Young

Wess H. Young Sr. 1921 Race Riot survivor, WW II Veteran, Father, Grandfather,  great-grandfather and friend passed this afternoon, September 30, 2014 at 4:00 pm in Dallas, Texas. He was surrounded by his grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren. His wife of 60+ years, Cathryn J. Young passed December 1, 2013. Mr. Young was 97 years old.  Mr. Young was a great man,  a true warrior and patriot.  It was a great pleasure getting to know and represent him in our attempts to get justice for him and the other survivors who now number below 50.  Below is a summary of the 1921 Greenwood Massacre a/k/a The Tulsa Race Riot

Black Wallstreet

On May 31 and June 1 1921, a mob of  over 2000 Whites, under the protection of city and state law, pillaged and destroyed during the worst domestic terrorist attack in U.S. history. The terrorist mob destroyed 36 square blocks killed upwards of 1000 people, and left 10,000 Blacks homeless, destitute, and traumatized. Afterwards city and state officials condone this terrorism, blamed the innocent Blacks, and instituted a cover-up so successful the horrors of the Greenwood Massacre were effectively blotted out of history for almost 80 years. In fact, the cover-up was so successful that while going to school on Greenwood Street, I never once heard about the bombing!!!

Shirley Chisholm: First black Congresswoman

I know today is the 6th.

On this day in history, Shirley Chisholm became the first black woman elected to Congress.
On November 5th 1968, she was elected to represent New York’s 12th District and went on to maintain that seat for seven terms until 1983.
Born in New York the daughter of West Indian parents, Chisholm is known for using her political career to fight for social justice and education.
In 1969, Chisholm became one of the founding members of the Congressional Black Caucus. She then went on to become the first African American to make a bid to become President of the United States — running for a Democratic nomination in 1972.
Chisholm died in 2005, however in 2004 she said about her legacy, “I want history to remember me not just as the first black woman to be elected to Congress, not as the first black woman to have made a bid for the presidency of the United States, but as a black woman who lived in the 20th century and dared to be herself.”
