First I want to give all of you my deepest and sincerest apologizes for not being as consistent this month with the posts so I wanted to extend our tribute of Black History throughout the year and the years to come.
There has been so much shade thrown at Beyonce since her Super Bowl performance and how she saluted the Black Panthers. The most popular discussion was of Tomi Lahren an conservative political commentator who received the Donkey Of The Day Award by Charlamagne the God on The Breakfast Club. Take a look.
Tomi Lahren obviously needed to be educated about the Black Panthers and I feel like whoever agrees with her needs to watch this documentary as well. Marcus Garvey once said, “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” America was built on the backs on Africans, Africa Americans ancestors. So Black History is your history too Tomi. This ignorant TV host knew nothing except the violence of the Black Panthers. Not why they got violent or when they got violent, just the violence. I learned a lot from this documentary and I think this is a great teaching tool for those in my generation or any generation, who do not know about the group of black individuals who paved the way.
Watching this documentary I became emotional for several reasons. How they treated us, how they started a FBI Black Hate group to rid the Black Panthers but most of all, how there are so many similarities of the injustice system 50 years ago and today. Please, please educate yourself on your history and share this post or video with your colleagues, friends, teachers , children and don’t let it stop there.
