The Black Church In Trenton
There are roughly 25 major Black churches in Trenton for the approximately 44,000 Black residents of the city. As with Black churches nationally, Black churches in Trenton are primarily female in attendance. The males who attend are under 14 years of age or over 60. Adult women over 40 are the backbone of the church.
Traditionally, Black churches in Trenton, for the most part, have been sideline spectators as it relates to civil rights, community and political activism. During the civil rights era, Black churches in Trenton gave little if any support to the movement.

Murphy señaló que el objetivo de hacer esta serie de Festivales es con el fin de ayudar a que las familias de bajos recursos puedan tener acceso a la atención médica y recursos para ayudar en la educación de los niños. “Queremos hacer esto no solo en Trenton, sino en todo el estado de Nueva Jersey” dijo Murphy.

“Don’t Touch My Hair!”
May I have that, please?
That’s what you say when you want something, and people are impressed by your manners. You’re a kid who never just takes, you always ask first because you want the same kind of manners back. But in the new book “Don’t Touch My Hair!” by Sharee Miller, you might have to ask for them, too.

Kwanzaa
In 1966, the only “indigenous non-heroic Black holiday in the United States” was created by Dr. Maulana Karenga, the founder and chairman of the Black nationalist organization, “US”, and a professor of political science in California. The ideas and conceptions of Kwanzaa developed out of the system of social and political thought of Kawaida (tradition and reason), also developed by Dr. Karenga.
The word KWANZAA is derived from the Swahili word “KWANZA”, which means “first” and is part of the phrase Matunda Ya Kwanza (first fruits). Dr. Karenga added the extra “a” to the word.
Kwanzaa is an adaptation of the African celebration of harvest time, when traditionally the community gathered to celebrate the fruits of its labor. Cele­brating Kwanzaa is one way in which African Americans can continually build and foster positive social, eco­nomic, emotional and spiritual growth in every aspect of our lives. It is a cultural awakening.
The NGUZO SABA (the Seven Principles) represent the “minimum set of principles by which Black people must live in order to begin to receive and reconstruct our history and lives
Kwanzaa begins on December 26 and ends on January 1. Each day of Kwanzaa represents one of the Nguzo Saba

Video Shows Trenton, NJ Police Assaulting Man In Mental Distress

A man in obvious mental distress instead of being assisted by police swore to protect and serve, was viciously attacked by the police and their k9 dog.

The unidentified man repeatedly saying “water, water, water” was subjected to a brutal display of force at the hands of Trenton police officers. It seems everyone else in the video realized the man was impaired in some way, everyone except the police who only seemed to see some type of dangerous animal.

What seems to be a common occurrence in police videos the officer was heard saying “stop resisting, stop resisting” as though this were his excuse to commit mayhem on this deranged man’s person.

And that’s what they did. The officer allowed his k9 dog partner to attack and bite the man even though he was  in mental distress. Even while the k9 dog is biting him the victim still only said “water, water, water”.

Who in his right mind wouldn’t recognize the man’s mental distress after all of this. Everyone did, except the police officers. They continued to operate under the assumption the man was criminal and not deranged. How pitiful.

Then to make matters worse the officer is seen abusing the k9 who clearly not under his command or control.

It will be of much interest seeing how the police director and mayor respond to this assault by what in a long distant past used to be looked on as Trenton’s finest.

 

Facebook says nearly 50m users compromised in huge security breach | Technology | The Guardian

Nearly 50m Facebook accounts were compromised by an attack that gave hackers the ability to take over users’ accounts, Facebook revealed on Friday.“

Today’s disclosure is a reminder about the dangers posed when a small number of companies like Facebook or the credit bureau Equifax are able to accumulate so much personal data about individual Americans without adequate security measures,” said the US senator Mark Warner in a statement. “This is another sobering indicator that Congress needs to step up and take action to protect the privacy and security of social media users.”

Facebook shares fell about 3% following the disclosure.

‘The Global Imagination of 1968: Revolution and Counterrevolution’ – by Shaka Zulu

September 24, 2018

by Shaka Zulu

We are struggling with how best to marshal our revolutionary forces – how best to raise the political temperature of cadre and oppressed people alike – in a society as fascist as Mussolini’s Italy was. Organizations, groups and collectives are rightfully confused because they have an incorrect political understanding of the nature of the class forces arrayed against the people, and this incorrect political knowledge leads to incorrect political analysis.

So, have the courage to read Comrade Katsiaficas’s “1968” book. You will discover how to develop the living soul of activism. “1968” is a seminal study in revolutionary activity. Period.

It will not make you get off the couch. It will not force you to be other than who you are, but what it will do is give you a start on how to internationalize our movement and politics.

A Brief Response: Marshall Plan for Africa or “Debt Trap?”

Image result for A Brief Response: Marshall Plan for Africa or “Debt Trap?”

The enormous investments China is pursuing in Addis Ababa have totally transformed the face of Ethiopia, a country once ranked among the poorest in the world. Today, Ethiopia is the only country in Africa that can manufacture its own leather shoes, thanks to support from China. This is the kind of friendship Africa has been yearning for.

Africa’s development can only be shaped by Africans. Europe and the US can therefore involve African leaders in designing the kind of investments and relations that fit them. If they continue condemning China on its relations with Africa, the continent’s ties with Beijing will only get stronger and thrive all the more.
