It feels dope to be able to say that I was at a major event that’s going down in the history books. I learned a lot out in DC last weekend for Justice Or Else (the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March). On Facebook/instagram/twitter/snapchat, I saw a lot of people expressing their concern and frustrations on why it wasn’t shown in mass media. I agree that it should of been in the headlines, considering the fact that it was a peaceful rally with thousands (possibly over a million) of people coming together from all parts of the country to seek change. There were a lot of things covered during Minister Louis Farrakhan’s speech on 10/10/15, but here are 4 of the main things we can do that could help the government see that Black Lives Matter.
- Stop Calling Women The “B” Word – If other races see us treating our people as trash, they will think that it’s okay to do the same. I don’t care if you think it’s a term of endearment or not. If you want change like you claim to want it, then follow these directions. Period.
