Make MLK DREAM a reality.

As we again celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, let's also

remember he was murdered 54 years ago in Memphis. It’s the moral

responsibility of our generation to redouble our efforts to make MLK

DREAM a reality.

First, consider this quote from Dr. King Jr:

“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.”

That incredible foresight of a guaranteed income would later be

championed in our time by Andrew Yang.

King’s vision of guaranteed income back then is now Yang’s vision for a

Universal Basic Income of $2,000.00 a month, for every New Yorker – no

questions asked. Yang will still continue to do the math.

Unfortunately Americans have never been more divided and polarized

than today in Trump's hyper-partisan America. As we know, Trump has

spent the last four years of his office doing his very best to hinder people

of color from relocating to this country. With regards to people from

Haiti and Africa, Trump infamously asked in an Oval Office meeting:

Why do we want all these people from shithole countries; coming here?"

He then went on to suggest that the US should “get more people from


Trump may be on his way out, but his poisonous, racist legacy smolders

on. If racism is a fire, then Trump is the Arsonist-in-Chief.

Trump and the Republicans’ actions still only give Blue States one

recourse to protect their interests—going on the offensive and declaring

Civil War II - Cyber Edition. This continues to be 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. Four

years of Trump has dragged that name through the dirt, mud and worse.

There's a time and a place for marching and peaceful protesting (unlike

Trump’s violent goons who just recently over-ran the Capitol). However,

as it was in MLK’s time, the thing that will get people from the back of the

bus to the front is economic activism. As we know, the Montgomery Bus

Boycott was the game changer of its time. Fast forward 50 years and

Colin Kaepernick is our modern-day Rosa Parks. It is no surprise that

white supremacists, with the backing of Trump and the GOP, have done

everything they can to keep him off the field.

Kaepernick peacefully knelt before the flag and was slammed by the

MAGA-mob as being a traitor. Trump’s insurrectionists had people killed,

destroyed property, attacked police officers and literally defecated in the

halls of the People’s House. Yet the right-wing have no problem with that

at all. Stunning hypocrisy.

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 cannot 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. It’s the central tenant of the disastrous “War on


156 years ago our ancestors left their masters physical plantations and

unknowingly migrated to their insidious political plantations. Mass

incarceration was the brainchild of Biden signed into law by Bill Clinton.

Let’s never forget that as Biden ascends to the Presidency.  

Over 50 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr wrote the following words

that are both profound and remain true to this day:

“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 ma';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 both a historical slap in the face and a

wake-up call. The Democratic Party is working to elect a “White

Moderate” who opposed bussing and praised segregationists Why does it

always have to be the white, aged, centrist candidate that the DNC

always seem to revert to (Obama aside)?

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.

It is time for us to rise up and take political and economic control of our

future and our loved ones’ futures. Don’t be fooled into thinking that now

Trump has gone and the Democrats have the Presidency and Congress

our best interests will be served.

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 &; Crypto-Strong Political Party.

The TIP Political Party is the Progressive counterpoint and antithesis to

the Republican Tea Party, MAGA alt-right, and white supremacy. We

simply want all people to Travel in Peace no matter their race, culture,

gender or sexual orientation.

Fellow Progressives, we would like to introduce you to our generation’s

Montgomery Bus Boycott and the 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 Progressives and

the world against oppression. This boycott will give us, the people,

genuine leverage over this outcome and our opponents.

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 dark heart of Trump’s hinterland America – more

so than ever before after events in recent weeks. 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 scream and threaten the most. However, the truth remains the

truth regardless. We will always be the people that have the power.

Consequently we will not let Republican voters hide behind their elected

officials without causing their state economic harm.

This fight remains for the 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

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. That is the first self-funded political party designed to

effectively end the practice of lobbyists funding politics for their selfish,

nefarious goals - a practice that is rooted in the Slavery Economy Era.  Our

mission is to secure the White House on a permanent Progressive basis,

legalize cannabis nationwide and dominate the U.S. tourism industry.

Those key principles will foster both world peace and prosperity.

We will be the generation to finally eradicate the Confederacy, unshackle

millions of fellow Americans, legalize cannabis and make the Universal

Basic Income dream become a reality for our children. (Andrew Yang's

Universal Basic Income is the modern-day equivalent to Reparations)

Join our fight for the soul of America and our right to “smoke in peace.”

In doing so, we can:

“Heal the moral conscience of a deeply flawed nation.”
