"End The War On Black People" - BlackLivesMatter Demands Reparations, Investments, Political Power

Today "The Movement for Black Lives," a coalition "more than 50 organizations representing thousands of Black people from across the country" posted a 22 page list of "demands" in what they called "A Vision for Black Lives: Policy Demands for Black Power, Freedom and Justice." 

The demands are fairly extensive and call for, among many other things, the following for Black people: free and open access to all public universities, retroactive forgiveness of all student loan debt, passage of H.R. 40 to study a "Reparation Proposal for African Americans," removal of police from schools, retroactive decriminalization and release of all people held on drug and prostitution-related offenses and a restructuring of local, state and federal tax codes to achieve a "radical and sustainable redistribution of wealth."

The policy demands were summarized as follows:

Together, we demand an end to the wars against Black people. We demand that the government repair the harms that have been done to Black communities in the form of reparations and targeted long-term investments. We also demand a defunding of the systems and institutions that criminalize and cage us. This document articulates our vision of a fundamentally different world.

 

This agenda continues the legacy of our ancestors who pushed for reparations, Black self-determination and community control; and also propels new iterations of movements such as efforts for reproductive justice, holistic healing and reconciliation, and ending violence against Black cis, queer, and trans people.

A full list of the demands is presented below (and can be viewed here): 

End the War On Black People

  • An immediate end to the criminalization and dehumanization of Black youth across all areas of society including, but not limited to; our nation’s justice and education systems, social service agencies, and media and pop culture. This includes an end to zero-tolerance school policies and arrests of students, the removal of police from schools, and the reallocation of funds from police and punitive school discipline practices to restorative services.
  • An end to capital punishment.
  • An end to money bail, mandatory fines, fees, court surcharges and “defendant funded” court proceedings.
  • An end to the use of past criminal history to determine eligibility for housing, education, licenses, voting, loans, employment, and other services and needs.
  • An end to the war on Black immigrants including the repeal of the 1996 crime and immigration bills, an end to all deportations, immigrant detention, and Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) raids, and mandated legal representation in immigration court.
  • An end to the war on Black trans, queer and gender nonconforming people including their addition to anti-discrimination civil rights protections to ensure they have full access to employment, health, housing and education.
  • An end to the mass surveillance of Black communities, and the end to the use of technologies that criminalize and target our communities (including IMSI catchers, drones, body cameras, and predictive
    policing software).
  • The demilitarization of law enforcement, including law enforcement in schools and on college campuses.
  • An immediate end to the privatization of police, prisons, jails, probation, parole, food, phone and all other criminal justice related services.
  • Until we achieve a world where cages are no longer used against our people we demand an immediate change in conditions and an end to public jails, detention centers, youth facilities and prisons as we know them. This includes the end of solitary confinement, the end of shackling of pregnant people, access to quality healthcare, and effective measures to address the needs of our youth, queer, gender
    nonconforming and trans families.

Reparations

  • Reparations for the systemic denial of access to high quality educational opportunities in the form of full and free access for all Black people (including undocumented and currently and formerly incarcerated people) to lifetime education including: free access and open admissions to public community colleges and universities, technical education (technology, trade and agricultural), educational support programs, retroactive forgiveness of student loans, and support for lifetime learning programs.

These people are nuts and out of control.

WOW !!!

 All these Fascist,Left- Wing, Anti-God, Anti-American groups are now in their "Death throws". A Trump Victory in NOVEMBER will send them back into hiding while exterminating most......MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.........!!!!!!!!!!!!

'extermination' of people??? really???...what does GOD have to do with that???

i am black and don't believe in #blacklivesmatter....but you are just as idiotic

Ivin, there ARE a lot of idiots out there now days!!

b.l.m. came about because of Ferguson Missouri! michael brown was a thug and if he wasn't robbing the store, he would be alive today! There was no "hands up don't shoot"! It was all a lie, and b.l.m, is a lie! They are a bunch, thugs and I wouldn't put it past sharpton, and that POS in the W.H. encouraging them! The sad part is, the POS doesn't give a dam about blacks, what he does is use them! I'm sick and tired of listening to their bull, perhaps it's time to retaliate!   

I'd be happy to give them a one way ticket back to Africa, they seem to really hate America.....well, go find a country to love, we are sick of you.

and where would we send you back to???

Why should she be sent anywhere?  She's not milking the system, and then bitchin' and moanin' it's STILL not enough, while sitting on her ass doing NOTHING.  She's absolutely right......if they HATE this country so much, then why do they stay?  If it's SOOOOOO oppressive to live here, WHERE on this planet do they think they'd have it any better?

Maybe(?) this will make sense and you'll think, "OMG!  That is true!"

My daughter introduced me to a young Black Poet years ago.  Gerren Lyles (or Liles sp?) wrote a very small poetry book, "On The Road To Damascus."   I am not that big on poetry; however, ONE sentence blew me away!  "African Americans hate themselves for being born Black; and project that hate towards White People."

Makes sense, doesn't it!

Gerren thinks it is wrong for races to marry outside their race.

The only war on Blacks is the war that they believe is there. This is out of control.

Use tax money to pay them reparations in the form of PACKING THEM ALL UP AND SHIPPING THEIR ASSES BACK TO AFRICA.

We will save twice that amount of money in the following year by not having to dole out to them in welfare ,

food stamps, free phones, free housing, and eveything else we give them for free.

ALERT ALERT

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
