As we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, let's also remember he was murdered 52 years ago in Memphis. It’s our generation's moral responsibility to keep working towards making his DREAM a reality.
We have a new champion to bring this to life. Think King, think Andrew Yang.
“I am now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective – the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income.” Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.
King’s vision of guaranteed income back then is now Yang’s vision for a Universal Basic Income of $1,000.00 a month, for every American – no questions asked. Yang will do the math.
Unfortunately, Americans have never been more divided and polarized than today In Trump's America.
President Trump is actively working to keep people of color from immigrating to this country. Referring to Haiti and African nations, he asked in an Oval Office meeting, "Why do we want all these people from 'shithole countries' coming here?" and suggested we should get more people from Norway.
Trump and the Republicans actions give Blue States one recourse to protect our interests—going on the offensive and declaring Civil War II- Cyber Edition. This is the only way to free the millions of Americans unjustly incarcerated and to defend the poor, the Dreamers, our planet, our healthcare, and to restore honor and integrity to the most prestigious position in the world, the U.S. Presidency.
There's a place and time for marching and protesting. But, just like in MLK’s time, the thing that will get people from the back of the bus to the front is economic activism. The Montgomery Bus Boycott was the game changer. Colin Kaepernick is our modern day Rosa Parks, and white supremacists have kept him off the field.
In the spirit of MLK and Rosa Parks, we must go to war to defend our rights and dignity. We must go to war to ensure activists stay on the field. We must go to war to ensure cannabis legalization is the law of the land. We can not have half the country enjoying recreational cannabis while those in the other half rot in prison for a joint, their lives ruined and themselves enslaved in the penal system workforce. It's not a coincidence that blue states legalize and confederate states imprison. This is what Jeff Sessions fought for.
155 years ago our ancestors left their masters physical plantation and unknowingly migrated to their insidious political plantation. Mass incarceration was the brainchild of Biden signed into law by Bill Clinton.
Over 50 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr wrote, “I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.”
With Trump and the GOP waging a full blown Civil War against people of color the DNC leadership should hang their heads in shame for hosting a lily white debate post Obama. It's a historical slap in the face and wake up call. The Democratic Party is working to elect a “White Moderate” who opposed bussing and praised segregationists.
Today, we are 100 million strong in the U.S. and 1.4 billion strong worldwide. We must unshackle ourselves from the “White Moderate” Democrats, they are not our allies and will always sell us down the river as soon as they secure our votes.
Today is the day we rise up and take political and economic control of our future and our loved ones’ futures. We are a group of veterans, historians and social tourism activists who have started the Travel in Peace (TIP) Political Party "America's First Self-Funding Blockchain & CryptoStrong Political Party"—it’s the Progressive counterpoint to the Republican Tea Party. We simply want all people to Travel in Peace no matter their race, culture, gender or sexual orientation.
Fellow Democrats and Progressives, we like to introduce you to our generation’s Montgomery Bus Boycott and South African Apartheid Embargo. Our #FeelThePainBoy travel boycott is designed to block tourism to Red States, cripple their trillion-dollar tourism industry, redirect that money into progressive places, boost our economy and unite Democrats and the world against oppression. This boycott will give us—the people—leverage over the outcome. And leverage over the alt right.
We ask each of you not to visit or support our oppressor’s economy, both as an act of solidarity and for your own safety, which we fear could be in jeopardy if you visit the heart of Trump’s America. We’re boycotting North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky and Missouri.
Please consider redirecting your travel dollars to progressive states, like Colorado, California, Massachusetts, Maine, Minnesota, Washington, Oregon, New York, Nevada, Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey or Hawaii instead.
Trump and his racist supporters think they have the upper hand because they control the Senate and White House. The truth is and will always be that the people have the power, and we will not let Republican voters hide behind their elected officials without causing their state economic harm. This fight is for Dreamers, Puerto Ricans, Haitians and all people of color. Unlike the Montgomery Boycott, when we are victorious, we'll have political power with the creation of Travel in Peace Political Party and economic power with the creation of Afrobnb.com. Afrobnb will connect the 1.4 billion people in the pan-African diaspora in the emerging $100 billion shared economy.
The BnB Liberation Movement will morph into the Travel in Peace Political Party, TIP Party for short. It’s the first self-funded political party designed to effectively end the practice of lobbyists funding politics for their selfish goals—a practice that is rooted in the Slavery Economy Era. Our mission is to take back the White House, Legalize cannabis nationwide and dominant the U.S. tourism industry, fostering both world peace and prosperity.
We will be the generation to eradicate the Confederacy, unshackle millions of fellow Americans, legalize cannabis and make the UBI DREAM a reality for our children. Join our fight for the soul of America and our right to Smoke in Peace.
