Background, in case you're not black or have been living under a rock:
"In the early hours of Saturday, May 15, 2010, ten days before his seventeenth birthday, Kalief Browder and a friend were returning home from a party in the Belmont section of the Bronx.
They walked along Arthur Avenue, the main street of Little Italy, past bakeries and cafés with their metal shutters pulled down for the night. As they passed East 186th Street, Browder saw a police car driving toward them. More squad cars arrived, and soon Browder and his friend found themselves squinting in the glare of a police spotlight.
An officer said that a man had just reported that they had robbed him. “I didn’t rob anybody,” Browder replied. “You can check my pockets.” "
In the back of the squad car, Kalief Browder would ask his friend if he had taken something (turned out there was a stolen backpack in question). His friend said that he hadn't taken anything either. Yet in 2010, at the age of 16, it was Browder that was sent to Riker's Island for a crime he didn't commit.
He wouldn't be released for 3 years.
by Jennifer Gonnermanhttps://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/10/06/before-the-law"Browder sat there for three years without a trial. He was repeatedly beaten by guards and inmates while in Rikers.
He spent two years in solitary confinement—a euphemism for living under torture. On [a] Saturday in [June of 2015] the effects of that torture were made manifest:
That afternoon, at about 12:15 P.M., [Browder] went into another bedroom, pulled out the air conditioner, and pushed himself out through the hole in the wall, feet first, with a cord wrapped around his neck.
His mother was the only other person home at the time.
After she heard a loud thumping noise upstairs, she went upstairs to investigate, but couldn’t figure out what had happened. It wasn’t until she went outside to the backyard and looked up that she realized that her youngest child had hanged himself."
This is likely why almost everyone understands that the words "not settling" is a euphemism for "desperation."There was a story about five 100 year old black women a few weeks back. A couple of them said the best thing they ever did was NOT GET MARRIED...instead they traveled and had boyfriends.
Teairra Mari, who stars in the show, "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood," spoke at a press conference Thursday alongside her attorney, Lisa Bloom.
Mari said last week, she found out that her boyfriend Akbar Abdul-Ahad was cheating on her, so she broke up with him.
Shortly after the breakup, she said Abdul-Ahad posted a "sex tape and an obscene photo" of her "clearly to humiliate" her.
"He had my Instagram password, so he posted them on my Instagram to make me look terrible," she said. "Of course, I was horrified."
She said she immediately took down the images, but her ex-boyfriend's good friend 50 Cent posted a sexually explicit image of her on his Instagram with the caption, "get the strap."

"50 Cent has 18 million followers, so I was devastated," she said. "To make it even worse, even after Instagram took the picture down, he had no remorse, no regard, and he posted another photo and complained that IG was censoring him."

|Malcolm X by Richard Day|
Some black people are so scared don't even want to vote because America is "theirs" (the whites)
Constantly, the black and fearful say things that mean we as black people need to find a place and isolate and create our own this and that -- like they don't remember white people destroyed Black Wallstreet and dozens of all black towns in the past because we had no political power and therefore no ability to bring white racists to heel --even a little bit.
Other fearful black folks say we need to move here or move there when our blood started being mixed with the soil right here 400 years ago. Furthermore, our ancestors probably built most of the historical buildings worth gawking at and admiring in the United States
And to tell the truth, I seriously consider retiring elsewhere from time to time.But Malcolm wasn't scared. Or if he was fearful, he educated himself and learned to live with it better than others have. But it seems to me he was never afraid of new knowledge or of changing his mind.
Some black men (and too many women) were so afraid of losing a fictional black father in Cliff Huxtable (and a rich black man as an icon) that they were/are willing to throw women under Bill Cosby's bus --despite his having admitted to actions that are unequivocally rape.Malcolm's legacy is not hard to pin down because he changed so much. His legacy is the willingness and ability to change.
...immediately my attention was struck by the mannerisms and attire of the Lebanese women. In the Holy Land [Saudi Arabia] there had been the very modest, very feminine Arabian women—and there was this sudden contrast of the half-French, half-Arab Lebanese women who projected in their dress and street manners more liberty, more boldness. I saw clearly the obvious European influence upon the Lebanese culture. It showed me how any country’s moral strength, or its moral weakness, is quickly measurable by the street attire and attitude of its women—especially its young women. Wherever the spiritual values have been submerged, if not destroyed, by an emphasis upon the material things, invariably, the women reflect it. Witness the women, both young and old, in America—where scarcely any moral values are left.
In the Autobiography, once again, Malcolm writes: “I’m right with the Southern white man who believes that you can’t have so-called ‘integration,’ at least not for long, without intermarriage increasing. And what good is this for anyone? Let’s again face reality. In a world as color-hostile as this, man or woman, black or white, what do they want with a mate of the other race?” …
in every country you go to, usually the degree of progress can never be separated from the woman. If you’re in a country that’s progressive, the woman is progressive. If you’re in a country that reflects the consciousness toward the importance of education, it’s because the woman is aware of the importance of education.
But in every backward country you’ll find the women are backward, and in every country where education is not stressed it’s because the women don’t have education. So one of the things I became thoroughly convinced of in my recent travels is the importance of giving freedom to the women, giving her education, and giving her the incentive to get out there and put the same spirit and understanding in her children. And I am frankly proud of the contributions that our women have made in the struggle for freedom and I’m one person who’s for giving them all the leeway possible because they’ve made a greater contribution than many of us men.[ … ]
Appearing on a television talk show in Toronto, in mid-January 1965, Malcolm was asked by the host, Pierre Berton, whether he still held his earlier views on this question. Malcolm replied: “I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being—neither white, black, brown, or red; and when you are dealing with humanity as a family there’s no question of integration or intermarriage. It’s just one human being marrying another human being, or one human being living around and with another human being.”
What needs to be attacked, Malcolm told Berton, is the racist society that produces attitudes “hostile toward integration and toward intermarriage and toward these other strides toward oneness” of human beings, not “the reaction that develops among the people who are the victims of that negative society.”
