Conservative Movement Pt 1-Richard Dyer

Greetings, Brothers And Sisters,

In writing this article, it takes great pains in knowing and understanding the plight that is still before our group today. What do I mean? We, as a group within the United States are still under the iron-hand oppression of the pale skin nation, even as a so-called free citizen in the so-called “LAND OF THE FREE!”

The forgoing article was written in 2017, and I’ve been updating it every since. Let me start from the beginning of this writing and bring you up to the present events that are still plaguing our group, and no matter how much you think you are immune from it hitting you directly, it will. This writer’s topic started when Donald J. Trump took office as president of the United Stages. It’s called CONSERVATIVE MOVE — and we know before this he claimed to be a Democrat; until he understood he could not get into office because of his view points, but from a conservative perspective, he could make his move.

On Inauguration day, Donald Trump’s inaugural address expressed the chaos and division to come to all of America, with his (fire-and-brimstone) speech — and we know, ignorance brings chaos not knowledge.

Trump came up in the age when politicians in both the South and North rose to power on the backlash against the civil rights movement!!! Trump learned the language of “law and order” from Richard Nixon as a racist dog whistle; from Charles Lindbergh, the popularity of the slogan “America First”; and from his mentor Roy Cohn, he learned the effectiveness of smearing opponents with sprays of rapid-fire insults with the method of rarely attacking one opponent or weighting in on a single issue, while sighting a long list of problems that he claims the other political party have either ducked or botched. So, there is a method to his madness. Why do I say this? (Remember Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950’s and his hunt for Communist agents? [McCarthyism]), so study-up on those he studied and learned from, and you will find that Trump’s ideology is not something new, but he finds that the repackaging of older forms of American xenophobia and authoritarianism will get him where he wants to be. But know this; History Will Judge Him Harshly and Those Who Were Complicit. . . Orange is “No Longer” the New Black”

CONSERVATIVE MOVE ——-

“Conservative Move,” a Real Estate Company and movement for like-minded conservatives, founded by a conservative European so-called [White man] around 2010, who moved from the West Coast to Texas and now his company moves other like-minded conservative Europeans from liberal States like California, Oregon, Washington State, etc., and relocate them to conservative states like Texas and Alabama. This creates a voter’s block to help vote conservatives into office.

Do you know that more than 90% of elected government officials in these conservative states have been re-elected to office since 1992, and since Trumpism arrived, these conservative [hate-pocket-groups] have elevated their activities with presidential approval.

Look at the activities with the NFL. In September 2017, stemming from the protest of Colin Kaepernick in 2016, a black NFL quarterback who took a knee during the National Anthem before each game, calling attention to the “injustice”, “murder”, and “mass incarceration” of the many brothers and sisters all across American and no one being held accountable, even when a murder is captured on video.

Now Kaepernick’s message has been lost after the Trump attack on Black NFL players for taking a knee during the National Anthem, this was after his Vice President Mike Pence went to a NFL game and players on both sides took a knee and Pence left shortly thereafter. Trump made a speech and said: “If I was an owner, I would say; Get those sons of b****** off the field — YOU’RE FIRED!” After this remark from Trump, the media went wild, and the true message of Kaepernick was lost. How so? It became more about protesting Trump then equality for the black community.

Then on September 24, 2017, Jerry Jones, Owner of the Dallas Cowboys locked arms and kneeing in solidarity with his players (before) the singing of the National Anthem, then standing at attention during the anthem. And on September 28, 2017, Thursday Night NFL game; Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rogers’ request for fans and players to lock-arms before the anthem, then stand at attention for anthem, to protest Trump, further moving away from the true meaning of what Kaepernick and other black players protest are/were all about [How Ignorant And Tone Death Is Rogers]. . . This being an [Act of European psychology] as they have always done when we bring or call attention to Our issues. Aaron Rogers could never understand our plight nor our culture. Jerry Jones on the other hand understood that he could not let this effect his business. Now do YOU understand why Jerry Jones took a knee before the anthem? The NFL owners convened at the [Round Table] and sent Jerry Jones forth. Removing the True meaning / Real issue of the protest. Afterwards, Jerry Jones came out and said: “. . . no player on my team will take a knee during the National Anthem.”

Business move for him, (shifting the focus) for Trump, while the problem continues and what’s worse; refusing to address the Real Issue, even when forced to do so. Yes, they had a meeting with the NFL Players Union Reps and said they would (donate) a certain amount of money to inner city programs and youth centers, etc., but once again — Never Addressing the Real Issues. See where I’m going?
“The Great Cultural Divide” is what it is and with the conservative thought movement [hate-pocket-groups] gaining momentum once again — openly, you either get on board or be crushed to powder. This is the conservative mentality toward people attaching importance to anything other than their agenda, mainly — the Black community!

We Can’t Breathe-Reginald Brown

In 1992 I was 5 years old. I vaguely remember the beating of Rodney King by six white LAPD Officers who were subsequently acquitted. Today I am a 32 year old black man, experienced with police contact, some good, and some bad. Nevertheless, I am aware that 30 years later, things remain the same.

Often, we refer to slavery as if it has ended. Slavery is alive, however; the methods have evolved. In the early 1900’s and into the Civil Rights movement, African Americans were beat, murdered, hung, raped, sprayed with water, and attacked by dogs. Slavery and racism are sophisticated beast, it’s unchanging and forever evolving. Our prison system is a true testament to that. African Americans account for almost 14% of the U.S. population. We are no longer the second largest race in the U.S. anymore. However, we account for 75%-80% of the 2.2 million incarcerated in the U.S. The KKK has put down their cloth robes, pointy hats, and picked up badges. They have become Senators, Judges and Presidents. They are the politicians that shape our country today. 

Over the past week or so I’ve struggled with my message. Not knowing if my words have a place in this conversation? But, I have watched the video of George Floyd being murdered by the police repeatedly. It has given me my strength and courage. This man life was taken from him as he begged and pleaded for air. As he called out for his mother. His mother that passed away three years prior. As on lookers begged and pleaded for his life. “You are killing him”, they shouted; “YOU ARE KILLING HIM”! Take one second and ponder on this, George Floyd will never take another singular breath. His children will never be able to hold their father again. So when you wonder or ask what’s at stake here, the answer is, LIVES! 
As I watch the protests in our country and those by our bothers and sisters across the pond, I am educated. Racism in America is only a microcosm of the worlds true reality. Racism is our oldest pandemic. It affects us globally. We cannot allow George Floyd death to go unchecked. We must continue to march together; Black, White, Latino, Asian and all others! Young and old! Male and Female! They will try to judge and focus on the response of the people, we must focus on the actions that has continued to stoke these flames.Together we will make them say their names: 

George Floyd 5-25-20

Non-White Classification Pt 2-Terry Thomas

In the MDOC 65% of all clerk positions, 70% of Maintenance jobs and 50% of all Toutor jobs are held by “White” prisoners. This is by design because most of these positions are hand-picked by the assignmet supervisors rather than being chosen by the classification director from first-come-first-serve pools. Supervisors are allowed to slect prsoner on the basis of who they “feel comfortabe” with, while all the SECURITY SENSITIVE jobs require the prisoner be cleared by the local inspector.

Prisoner representatives (who are decisivie voices in how the funds earned in the prisoner store are spent, and act as liaisons between the administration and the population), are also divided between white and non-white. Each housing unit elects only two (one white, one non-white), to serve a six month term as part of the “Warden’s Forum” The “election” is done by ballot and the ballots are counted by the unit councler outside of the view of any prisoners. Without any way to varify that the results accurately reflect the voting, they have to trust i the integrity of the people who make their living perpetuating their confinment. The fact that HALF of all prisoner reps MUST BE WHITE suggests that the administration believes a non-white prisoner could not be trusted to represent the interests of white prisoners and that the interests of white prisoners MUST BE REPRESENTED in any discussions between prisoners and staff. Meanwhile, among the “non-white” population are blacks (who account for 65% of prisoners) and have no such garauntees written into the policy. There is no mandate in policy requiring that any of the prisoner reps be black, becaue the policy does not treat the interests of blacks as a priority. It is entirely possible that there can be one white and one nonwhite “elected”, who have no understandng of the need for a good afro comb verus an afro pick. Or how about, wave grease vs. hair grease?, or doo rags vs. wave caps, wave brushes vs. hair brushes etc.. What would whites or hispanics understand about these thngs? In fact, there are several things that are a daily part of black life which fall outside the experience of other ethnic groups. Without proportional representation in all aspects of the prison’s economy and political life, these things are not reflected in what is purchased with the funds they and their families pour into the prison stores. As an example it is only in recent years that the cable system included any channels which had “black” content. However, even today there are only two such channels BET and CENTRIC. That’s two out of fifty six channels; less than one percent. While conversely there are six FOX cnannels in addition to MTV, VH1, CMT etc. In fact all the other channels cater to white and/or conservative culture.

So you might ask yourself ; “Why this effort to defer to white prisoners?” The answer is the same as it always is; to keep the money and the power in white hands. If prisoners don’t have a source of income from prison jobs, they have to ask their families for money, so when you block the best payig jobs from black prisoners it ensures that money from the black community will flow into these institutions where the sate takes several bites out of it to agument their revenue steams. This bleeds money from our communties that could be put to more productive uses. Those prisoners who cannot support themselves from prison jobs or family conntributons often turn to more illicit sources of income which often result in longer prison stays. This policy is just a small part in an elaborate combination of seemingly unrelated legislative acts that ensure blacks will remain a permanent undercass fit for generating profits but not for sharing in them. Racial bias in prison is just good business for the dominate culture. It helps to perpetuate the advantages they enjoy and profit from.

Our Black-James Crawford

Our black is beautiful, our black is love, our black is original, our black is pure , I wear my blackness with confidence. I show no fear it’s a duality to this history moment our black is hated, our black was beaten, rape , held in bondage , most of all our black was murder and y’all wonder why we got a chip on our shoulder psychological chain reaction.

Blood of a slave body of a king mind of a God it’s helluva thing, our black is one with the culture so we are equal. 

Being this color pressure is applied on a day to basis the force behind chemical melanin and melationin in our brain the reason we got this glorious color on our body’s and faces the people of this color was dehumanize and sold off as live stock our ancestors was rob of their true nature as human beings whites looked at us as animals existing in a human shall.

They said we was unattractive and we came with a foul smell just thinking about how they did our people in the Atlantic Slave Trade make me stick to my stomach full of pain and rage like Nat Turner ready to rebell. 


Our black come with the natted hair with a Fiske that the unlike woman and man stare born to dream chase and conquer reality mind built to cope with family tragedy, our black region supreme over all colors I hold my black fist high for solidarity and all the blacks who fought through the struggles. 

They place things in our community for us to kill each other . 

We refuse to be broken our black is striving to take back everything that was stolen . We just needed to be awoken to the right knowledge so wake up our black is dieing at a alarming rate you are what you eat so take that chicken off your plate get it. 

Our black was brain wash they want to divide us they want us to think we are all different but they can never separate us from our black peace.
