comprehensively). Activism deals with speaking out, protesting, and working in a grassroots levelamong folks from the streets literally. We still have the battle in Arizona where the Governor isrefusing to allow immigrants to receive even basic public benefits or some in Mississippi violatingthe human rights of young kids (by sending them into juvenile for minor offenses in the schoolyardwithout the police determining if probable cause has been established. This is a blatant targeting of young black kids. This stuff is happening now in 2012 not in the 1960’s. The Equal Justice Initiative isdoing their best day in and day out in fighting against this nefarious reality. The MississippiDepartment of Justice has documented this information too).The current bipartisan domination of the American political system by two monopolistic parties israther transparent to the eyes that see. Similar foreign policies of the previous administration existin the current one. The drone attacks in Pakistan, the support of the imperialist Africom, thecontinuation of Guantanamo Bay, the support of NATO’s war crimes in Libya, and the covertoperations globally are acts that I personally oppose. A man like Mitt Romney says to people whocan’t afford to go into college to just borrow money from your parents. It’s that mentality whichcauses me to never worship the GOP at all. One person, who is the Vice President Joe Biden, talkedabout chains inside of Danville, Virginia. It doesn’t take a genius that some in the oligarchy want usas human beings to be held into the chains of mental slavery, corporate domination, and otherforms of social oppression. In the end, we will win and forever rejects those chains.Still, there is value in love. Love can make complications to be improved upon. We do need lovesince as human beings there is no shame in expressing a soulful connection among the human race.There is great value in us as humans to express empathy, compassion, and strength in this special,revolving globe. Now, it’s time to show some other forms of realities. It’s fine to talk about love, butwe have to talk about reality as well. Not everything in life will be filled with rainbows or unicorns.Not everything within our longevity will be all peaches and life. That is why we have no other optionbut to fight for our tranquility and social stability. For example, our ancestors fought in Americansoil to eradicate slavery and Jim Crow oppression. Our ancestors fought to institute labor reformsand the abolishment of child labor among the workplace. Humanity now is still fighting against war,against poverty, and against discrimination. Therefore, fighting is neither a vice noran irrationalproposition. It’s a fact of human resistance against the varied forms of evils. Now, fighting doesn’tnecessarily equate into indiscriminate violence for that form of violence is morally repugnant. Weshould fight using peaceful means and yes self-defense during extreme circumstances. I am not apacifist, but non-violent methods are the most peaceful means in developing a revolutionarychange.
I am a man. Therefore, I love debate, I love fighting for truth, and I love to present mymasculinity (which means that I don’t scapegoat women like some men are doing [I love thebeauty and intelligence of a woman], I fight for my rights, I express legitimate aggression, and Istrive to be a better human being. Robert F. Williams, Malcolm X, Fred Hampton, Lumumba,Kwame Khrumah, and others are real male role models). I am not ashamed of my masculinityperiod.
Also, the reactionaries and the Tea Party types cry about the Tenth Amendment, but the Bill of Rights says that the freedom of speech in real. Also, the Constitution gives Congress the right tomake laws that can benefit people beyond the confines of state rights. It’s time to embracesomething superior to just state rights, but it’s time for us to fully love human rights. Human rightstrump state rights. Not to mention that we have to be activists. That means we should call outcorrupt politicians and immoral actions done by evil corporations. We should be on the front line
