I don't know how I slept Episode 1, but you can bet I went looking for it, and found it. I'm posting both episodes here because:
- I don't want you to have missed any part of this truth-telling and,
- Since I'm not on Facebook or any other social media forums (because my old ass ain't trying to: build a presence, which is why I deleted the "Followers" gadget; nor solicit folk for funds that solely benefit my capitalist interests, which is why I have no ads; nor look for blog awards as confirmation that what I write, "is important") -- this is my only means of helping, in my own small way, to spread this very important word to those of you who take the time, to drop in and read me -- because this thing they're doing, is so very important for us.
No, this is NOT your Mama's or Daddy's Black TV, Family -- not BET, not News One, not Oprah. What it IS -- is a group of dedicated Black journalists, who've come together to produce the kind of information about which we all need to critically think if we are to survive as a people. Sit back, relax, take it in, chew on it, dissect it and then, if you can honestly say my observation ain't so -- say so, and back that shit up!:
Black Agenda Report has been my shelter in the unending storms of propaganda levelled at Black folk, particularly since the appearance of the Changeling. For years I kept wondering if I was the crazy one! Then I found folk, like -- Bruce Dixon, Glen Ford, Margaret Kimberley, Sese, Marsha Coleman-Adebayo, Jemima Pierrre, Mark P. Fancher, Solomon Commissiong, Jared Ball, et. al who weren't "shining up shit and calling it gold." They were, in the purest sense, "speaking truth to power" and never backing down. I knew then, that I'd really found a "virtual" home in the Black Diaspora in which I fit -- and which fit me.
