The Civil War ended in 1865. The DNC has had 154 years to eradicate the Confederacy, yet now we have the neo-Confederate, White Nationalist Trump Administration. Reparations are regularly kicked around by the DNC during an election year in a disingenuous attempt to secure the black vote. No matter how often the idea is brought up, Democratic presidents and Congressional leaders table it as soon as the win an election. Therefore, we will no longer accept political irrelevancy by blindly following the DNC.
Now is the time to vote for our best interests. In lieu of reparations, the TIP political party considers Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income of $1000.00 per month, 12 months of the year, and universal single payer healthcare for all Americans payment in full. We need to go on the offensive politically. Various discriminated against and disenfranchised minority groups have received reparations, so why not Black Americans?
We need to send the DNC and moderate politicians a clear message. They will again lose to Trump in 2020 if reparations / Universal Basic Income are not specifically included in the party platform.
The DNC can't win without the black vote.
Our ancestors dealt with men a thousand times worse than Trump who had the political power to enslave. We'll survive four more years of Trump.
The question is can American democracy survive in the meantime?
Racial inequality remains rampant in America.
Eric Garner shouted out 11 times that he couldn't breathe before he was choked to death for simply selling loose cigarettes. That was in what many believe to be one of the bluest cities in America. His cold-blooded executioner got off scot-free.
The Trump Administration—Attorney General William Barr—refused to press Violation of Civil Rights charges against a police officer who used the power of his position to brutally murder an unarmed black man. A guilty decision should undoubtedly have been handed down in NYC five years ago—but the US Justice Department had a chance to right that wrong. Instead, they defended the neo-fascist, racist, jack-booted thugs in the NYPD.
Conservatives will defend the police by saying racists are just “a few bad apples”--but they have conveniently forgotten the rest of the saying. “A few bad apples spoil the bunch.
America, on top of that, we must delve into the reason why Eric was selling loose cigarettes in the first place. Like millions of black men in America, Eric Garner had a police record for petty offenses. A criminal record—even for crimes that were necessary to feed and clothe your family shuts you out of the job market.
This is then why mass incarceration is so incendiary - it punishes the person not only with a long stint in prison, it also robs the person of any opportunity to change their ways after they are released. They have limited job, housing, and educational opportunities. Jail sentences limit your opportunity to be the breadwinner for your family and fully contributing citizen. While some have excelled after being released from prison, that's the exception not the norm. Cory Booker wants prisoners' sentences to get a ‘Second Look’ after ten years. But after ten years of being locked up in this automated world, what would they come home to?
If Eric Garner was receiving Universal Basic Income he would not have to sell loose cigarettes. When people are released from prison, Universal Basic Income will be their lifeline back into society. Let's support Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income.
Once every American is receiving Universal Basic Income, we propose the punishment for committing any crime should become more severe and result in a lifetime ban of receiving Universal Basic Income.
We will propose making Mississippi a federal penal state and no other state in the union will be allowed to have any federal prisons. If you commit a crime you will be going down the river. All prisoners including lifers will have the opportunity to train in Smoke in Peace Ex-Felons Foundation Cannabis Training program. Just like our ancestors tended tobacco in Mississippi during slavery, modern day prisoners will be trained to supplement America's cannabis growers.
Cannabis has the potential to become the fastest growing agricultural industry in the world. American history was built on the backs of black slaves working the fields for white masters. Today, black Americans are imprisoned at record rates for non-violent drug offenses—when cannabis is legalized equatiable, black Americans should be given the opportunity to legally join the fastest growing industry in the country.
We must become futurists architects and show our fellow Americans our blueprint of the crypto shared economy Era and what Black America demand in order to usher in the Blazins20s for all Americans.
The same old same old means nothing for Black America.
Black America, the classic definition of insanity is doing the very same thing over and over again, but expecting different results each time. The two-party oscillation model of politics, Democrats to Republicans to Democrats to Republicans and so on ad nauseum, is completely done.
Black America, we don't have a clearly defined black agenda because every single black politician, and the DNC, rely on corporate vultures for funding and absolutely no corporate entity has your well-being in their mission statement. Rather, these modern day Robber Barons are legally required to maximize their profits—the would rather the masses suffer than limit their growth potential. We have private companies building prisons. We have private companies that will cut corners to save a buck—even if the environmental consequences are disastrous—just look at the Flint Water Crisis.
Joe Biden is politics as usual. His praise of segregationist Senators was, at best, incredibly tone deaf and, more likely, a remnant of his past. During the first Democratic debate, he trotted out the tired trope of “let the states decide” when confronted by Kamala Harris about his fight against bussing. Many black leaders have concluded that no matter which party is in power, black people still lose.
Black Americans are still summarily executed by jack-booted thugs who believe they are judge, jury, and executioner. Little about our criminal justice system has changed since the 1969 execution of Fred Hampton. Unarmed black men are still gunned down on their own property. Black activists, like Sandra Bland, still end up dead while in police custody. What good is the status quo if it still ends with racist cops murdering Black Americans?
The question we must ask ourselves is: CAN a formerly enslaved people be integrated into their former slave masters political party and thrive?
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 —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.
Economics is also key.
But we aren’t just about politics - economics is also key. Consequently, we understand the economic power of travel and the 100 billion dollars plus shared economy that that entails.
That’s why we created Tipbnb, Afrobnb, Tipcruise.NYC and TipTour, collectively known as TipNation.NYC, to assist in funding TIP Party and getting corporate lobbyists out of our policy decision making process.
Massive corporations are using technology to rape and pillage our natural resource. They don't even have the decency to pay their labor a living wage! We cannot allow technological advances to recreate the slave-labor conditions of the past. Neo-colonialism must not be allowed to take hold!
This is your opportunity to get involved and protect the lives and well-being of people all across the world! We are looking for partners who are ready to go to political war and to officially usher in the “Shared Economy Era” and “Blazin20s”, and in doing so, shut down Trumpism and in doing so better the lives of millions in America and globally.
You can review our vision at tipnation.org and if you are interested in being part of the inner circle of this generation’s cultural war room, please contact us.
Only true political and economic power will fundamentally stop our people from being exploited, persecuted and killed in cold blood.
Black America, The founding fathers stacked the deck against us. However, there was no way for them to know that the Internet age would unravel their perfect union. Let's not walk or run—let's race to become the party of the future, a party that will weaponize, monetize and mechanize with cyber warriors and be free from the talons of corporate vultures.
Today, fellow Shitholes, we declare ourselves corporations with the formation of TIP Political Party. America's first self funding Political Party.
Shitholesquad, Rise up and let's get this PARTY started
