Black Out Monday is September 8

A loyal reader wrote in with information on how you can join the national effort to protest the police injustice in Ferguson, Missouri through our substantial purchasing power.

Loyal reader MoNique writes:

Ma'am-

I am sending you this information because of the impact you have and how passionate you and your rose garden normally are about issues like this. I received this and I thought this would be a great place to share this information, I haven't seen any other sites address this yet so I thought you could be the first. Here is the email I received below:

On September 8th 2014 many men and women of all races of the United States of America will boycott any establishment not ran by black entrepreneurs. On the 8th take a picture of an establishment you would normally frequent; fast food, gas station, supermarket and tag #BoycottForFerguson.

The Ferguson shooting of a young unarmed black man one week away from college who was immediately vilified has affirmed that now is the time to take a more drastic stand. Let’s begin by tapping the pockets of corporate America and creating a louder voice.

This is just the beginning of our necessary change. Celebrities and politicians have taken an ice bath for awareness; why not address racial injustice through the same outlet. We will continue to march peacefully and protest without rioting and show our support through social media to address issues.

It’s time to realize we all bleed red and the senseless racism, prejudice, ignorance and violence must stop; so let’s all come together and do what our nation was meant to do. One Love, One Fight

    This will definitely send a powerful message. It's what our ancestors did during the civil rights time frames and it helped them to help us.

    OAN, watch somebody go to wal mart because they forfot to pick up some seasonings or because the meats went on sale. Just watch. :hahaha:

    Hi Betameister, how art thou?

    I am good babes. Any day above ground is a good day. God is great and worthy of my praise.

    In character, "Oh Ms. Celie, I feels like sangin!" :rofl:

  • Jessie

    Not until I find out the TRUTH about what happened that day in Missouri. I think that we jump on the bandwagon too quickly and don't know the facts before we start protesting. Did a fight ensue? Did the cop call for back-up before it escalated to this point? Did Michael Brown and/or his friend have a physical altercation with the cop? I have no problem with the "black out" but I also want the truth to be told. I'm just not ready to compare this to the Trayvon Martin case.

    @Beta,

    No ma'am. I have nothing to complain about when it comes to the rose garden. I have love for alla my fellow roses and rose buds. What was the isha (proper english speaking folk pronounce it issue)?

  • Unshakable

    @Locapoca,

    Ok! And watch folk stock up prior to this black out. Be the first one in line. :yes:

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nAbQogbMOk Buttercup

    While I do agree that boycotting was effective during the Civil Rights movement, this is a little different. Industries were boycotted for MONTHS- not just a day. For this to get a favorite reaction, a boycott will have to take place until a change comes about.

  • lovezoe

    Anyone seen the video of the lady doing the ice bucket challenge and her wig comes off! :rofl: I couldn't talk I was laughing so hard. :cries:

    Unshake I was asking Jessie

  • BigSisterGorgeousOne

    Ok I don't really see how this will be affective for only one day.....I mean if we were to do this the 1st week of the month until we really see change maybe but one day.......business will be hurt but not enough for some real change to be made.....jmo :shurg:

    Oh and about the post ... people are still going to buy ish from them stores..I know i am..yall participate if yall want to... makes it easier for me to get in and out faster...but I agree with Jessie..said we have no facts..gotta stop assuming and jumping on the band wagon..

  • OutsidetheBox

    :facepalm: I don't give a fugg if Mike Brown gave that muhfukka a crispy two piece to the face. He bought a gun to a fist fight. Just like Zimmerman.

    He opened that door on them boys cause they wasn't moving fast enough for him and Mike Brown pushed that salty ass saltine byke in that car with his own door and he got mad and tried to hold on to him to prevent Mike from running away. Obviously he was going for his gun (where do they wear the gun in Mizzou?) cause the other friend started to run at the same time Mike did.

    Got that. Running away..so when he pursued PAST his cruiser to continue firing shots at Brown you STILL NEED MORE? The police cant do that. You slow. God bless you.

    _______________________________________________________________________

    I'm not taking the word of the media. I'd rather see transcripts and visible proof from the court system. Was the cop beat up as the assistant chief said he was? If so, provide medical proof. If his eye socket was truly injured, show pictures and a medical report. Because if it truly happened, then the cop has a "self defense" motive for shooting. I can't justify 6 bullets, but cops have to learn how to respect black males and black males need to learn how to respect authority.

  • sassyshe

    The fact is that an officer is not supposed to take a kill shot unless the perp threatens the officer's life (charging with a weapon, attacking with a weapon, meanancing with the intent to harm). If an officer fires at an individual 4x in areas that are meant to stall the individual then there is little to no justification to take kill shots unless the perp has a weapon which at no point was a factor in this situation

    @Gigi - Actually on Sundays me and my family go downtown Baltimore, every other Sunday and prepare breakfast for children at a church. They church got about 10 pews. YEAP 10 lonely pews. Their is a group of us, that provide educational items through the year for the children in the families.

    The church now has a regular attendance, and has received a small grant to continue the program.

    It's not much, but those children they we touch, we hope that we don't see them on TV.

    We involved in many things in our communities, we have three children of our own, but do the best we can.

    If you see me your information I can send you some other things that I do, and maybe you can do that in your city.

    Sent San some of it. :hug:

    @GiGi,

    First of all, many :kiss: for that radiant brown skin of yourn. Just beaullifah!

    Now, onto the agenda.....I agree with you on having solutions to bring to the table. I believe many Black people have gotten too comfortable and either don't believe the struggle is real or feel it's not personal to them. Blacks as a people have to inderstand that on issues like this we have to come together as a group and convey thru respectful, peaceful actions that enough is enough.

    Education of the Black plight for the generations, becoming more communal as a collective people, educating ourselves and each other on politics, getting an education, and learning how to have more respect for ourselves. Blacks must also learn how to endure when tested. We come feom a lineage of strength and perseverance. Needless to say, your post (on point as always) resonated within me. :hug:

    @Gigi – Actually on Sundays me and my family go downtown Baltimore, every other Sunday and prepare breakfast for children at a church. They church got about 10 pews. YEAP 10 lonely pews. Their is a group of us, that provide educational items through the year for the children in the families.

    The church now has a regular attendance, and has received a small grant to continue the program.

    It’s not much, but those children they we touch, we hope that we don’t see them on TV.

Georgia suburb -- 15-year old mentally ill boy kills grandmother with Samurai sword, comes into the yard waving said sword, threatens a BUNCH of police and is ALIVE. Please do not make me go on!

    Well if memory serves me correct Dr. King n em marched against some of the atrocities during the civil rights movement. They said ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and started to walk :yes:

    They could've taken the passive route and said hmmm let me request a meeting with Bull Connor n em and see what we can come up with. :lol:

    They decided to protest and march so the WORLD can see first hand how we were treated and how serious we were about our demands.

    Yes, voter education needs to be emphasized in these neighborhoods. Yes, we need to enforce education (big ups to the free tutoring at the library in Florissant), but in 2014, them folks enduring tear gas, rubber bullets n shyt?

    They bout it. Cuz it shouldn't be happening no way. We tried to take the passive route with Trayvon. Zimmerman is walking and being a fukk boy free of charge. We got to fire up again. And I for one even though I ain't walking, am WORKING behind the scenes to make sure my brothers and cousins don't face the same plight as Mike. Hell the NYPD is itching to put a bullet in a nigra.

    I showed this to my husband who runs his families' business, and he was not worried in the least about this having an impact on his business. I'm interested to see how many black customers he will have that day because I'm almost sure they will still come. He's in a weird position because most of his friends are black but they're promoting this black out day. The same mfers always asking to borrow money too. IMO It's going to take more than this to make a statement.
