                                                “Respect Black UBI Political Movement” 


Marcus Garvey’s vision, MLK’s dream and Malcolm X’s analysis with reparations re-imagined using the technology of today for lasting justice tomorrow.


Marcus Garvey:

“Every student of political science, every student of political economy, every student of economics, knows that the race can only be saved through a solid industrial foundation; that the race can only be saved through political independence. Take away industry from a race, take away political freedom from a race and you have a slave race.”

“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. 

Malcolm X
“We won’t organize any black man to be a Democrat or a Republican because both of them have sold us out. Both of them have sold us out. Both parties are racist, and the Democratic Party is more racist than the Republican Party.”

The Civil War ended in 1865. The DNC has had 156 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 they win an election. We will no longer accept political irrelevancy by blindly following the DNC.

On Monday July 29, 2019 , several senior staffers at the DNC quit their posts in protest at the DNC abjectly failing to make good on its campaign promise of promoting racial diversity within the organization. It turns out that the DNC are way more interested in rewarding party loyalty rather than honoring that promise.

“There is not one person of color — black or brown, that I’m aware of — at any position of authority or decision-making in the DCCC [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee],”Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus told HuffPost. “It is shocking and something needs to be done about it.”  










Despite the inevitable hand-wringing of the DNC in the aftermath of the resignations, one still has to ask as to how this is even a thing in the post-Obama Democratic Party of the twenty-first century? How does the DNC expect 100 million non-white Americans to vote for their candidates when they are unwilling to diversify their own ranks?

The fight against racism in the US is a binary one. That is to say that you are either part of the problem or part of the solution. There absolutely is no middle ground – even though the DNC continually appears to try and occupy that area. There is a German saying, “ if there’s a Nazi at the table and 10 other people sitting there talking to him, you got a table with 11 Nazis.” You either fight racism, or you stand with the White Supremacists.

With the DNC still of this ridiculously outdated racist mind-set, they do not deserve the support of one non-white American or true progressive in New York City. They are simply Republican-lite –essentially the same product but with some superficial changes.

Now is the time to vote for our best interests. In lieu of reparations, TIP political party considers Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income of $2000.00 per month, 12 months of the year, for 500k low income New Yorkers 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.  Universal Basic Income and Universal Global Travel is the future of politics in New York City

Racial inequality remains rampant in America.

With the barbaric murder of George Floyd at the hands, and knees, of four Minneapolis cops, black America now finds itself at yet another emergency crossroads. There have been at crossroads before.  But they were always bludgeoned or deceived into which way to go. read more

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, New York City. 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 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?



Then there is the issue of totally disproportionate sentences for minor crimes. Take the case of Michigan’s Michael Thompson, jailed in 1994 for selling weed to an undercover agent. His sentence? 60 years. He has served over 25 years and still has close on 35 years incarceration before him. To add insult to injury, cannabis has since been legalized in Michigan. Michael’s case is simply an outrage and should be rectified without delay.


Note: Micheal Thompson has been granted amnesty, now the State of Michigan owe him 2k UBI for life.

Sanders proposed a criminal justice overhaul that aims to cut the nation’s prison population in half, end mandatory minimum sentencing, ban private prisons and legalize marijuana. He says the current system does not fairly treat people of color, addicts or the mentally ill.

“We have a system that imprisons and destroys the lives of millions of people,” Sanders told The Associated Press before the planned released of his proposal Sunday. “It’s racist in disproportionately affecting the African American and Latino communities, and it’s a system that needs fundamental change.”


We agree the system needs fundamental change in the front end and when people are release from prison. Nowhere in Bernie Sanders plan do he address how millions of newly release prisoners will be successful re-integrated into society.

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 and end prison's revolving door policy. This is how the Yang Administration can safely reintegrate 25k fellow New Yorkers currently doing time for non-violence drug offenses and other low level crimes. This is how we return millions of fathers and mothers back to their families. 


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— cannabis will be legalized equitable, Black New Yorkers will be given the opportunity to legally join the fastest growing industry in the country.


Fellow New Yorkers, we must become Afro-futurists architects and show our fellow Americans our blueprint of the shared economy era and what Black America demand in order to usher in the Blazins20s for all Americans. Unbridled capitalism shattered the American Dream, Democrats will single-handedly shatter democracy if Universal Basic Income are not specifically included in the party platform.  


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.

We don't have a clearly defined black agenda because 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—they 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  and Newark 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? READ MORE

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 "New York City'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.

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 over 100 billion dollars that a shared economy entails.

That’s why we created Afrobnb, Womenunitedbnb, Tipcruise.NYC and TipTours, collectively known as Travel in Peace Nation,Inc., to assist in funding TIP Party and to end corporate bribery of our politicians. We can no longer allow “campaign contributions” to dictate policy.

Recently released documents “Moscow Mitch” McConnell show that, during a bipartisan effort to hold tobacco companies responsible for their decades of lying, the tobacco company RJ Reynolds considered McConnell a “special friend”. This “special friend” to the tobacco industry stood up in front of the Republican caucus and said that anyone who voted against the bill would surely receive “campaign contributions” from the tobacco industry. Mitch McConnell has been bought and paid for. “Moscow Mitch” has been compromised by moneyed interests for decades. We must end the practice of legal bribery in our politics.

Massive corporations are using technology to rape and pillage our people in the Caribbean. All inclusive resorts don't even have the decency to pay their labor a living wage! We cannot allow All-Inclusive and Airbnb technological advances to recreate the slave-labor conditions of the past. All-inclusive resorts are modern day forms of colonization, in which resorts use an unfair amount of the country’s resources while 80% of resort profits get sent back to the resort’s country of origin. Employees are paid low wages, and more often than not, tourists never leave the resorts, so the local economy never benefits.

America refuses to reduce it's carbon footprint, even though climate change is happening rapidly. The first places who will be effected by climate change are majority non-white, the Caribbean Islands will face increasingly intense hurricanes on a regular basis, African and Middle Eastern countries will face epidemic levels of water shortages—all the while, white America will again profit from the suffering of others. Yet the DNC has repeatedly refused to stage a Presidential debate on the issue. Yet again, the Democratic Party has continued to perpetuate the systemic environmental racism that infects America.


Millions of people in the Caribbean are living under the threat of a category 5 hurricane, Travel in Peace Nation will take the lead in restoring the tourism ecosystems of Caribbean Islands decimated by climate change induced hurricanes. TIP Nation will begin a series of We Owe Us Humanitarians Cruises to bring tourism dollars to devastated economies.


 TIP Political Party will propose the establishment of a Climate Change Force operated by the US Military, this Force will replace the ineffective FEMA. When a hurricane is eminent, we will deploy resources to evacuate everyone out of harms way as we can. We will also propose establishing an International Refugee Basic Income Fund. The G7 countries--countries who gained their wealth through slavery and colonization will be asked to contribute to the fund as a form of reparations. This will help people to be able to stay in their homes, it will prevent a mass exodus from environmentally devastated countries, and it will improve the safety of these economically devastated countries.

Neo-colonialism must not be allowed to take hold! engineers' -bridge into the peer to peer Openbazaar software will effectively eliminate any financial incentive for Airbnb or any for profit B nBmodel to operate in any majority black destination. At the heart of is a political movement rooted in Social Tourism. Social tourism is the extension of tourism benefits to disadvantaged people who otherwise could not afford to travel. Our version benefits both the traveler and the BnB host community. No tour operator in the world safely delivers you deeper into Afro-centric culture.


The BnB Liberation Movement will put hotel lobbyists and politicians on notice. We will primary any politician who will, after 400 years, attempt to put technological chains around our hosts. Your house is your own, just like your body—and you should be able to do with it what you PLEASE!

Cannabis has the potential to become the fastest growing agricultural industry in the world. SmokeinpeaceUSA our cannabis vacation division will enjoy a first-movers advantage in the global cannabis tourism marketplace. When Andrew Yang is elected, we will have a seat at the table to ensure that the people who have suffered most will now benefit the most.

We have a competitive advantage due to our entrepreneurial founder's 20 years of operating and creating tours—along with his unique connection with the Alaskan and Californian tourism industries, a strong background in California cannabis and wine tours, and 10 years spent traveling the world with the US Air Force.


Our strategy is to become the voice of the anti-Trump social movement, unifying individual efforts to create a formidable voice and become the first brand to monetize a social movement. The traditional travel industry is one of the last industries not disrupted by technology. Our founder, a veteran tour operator, has re-imagined the Airbnb Model in order to not only disrupt the hotel and travel industry, but to also disrupt the corrupt politics of modern day America. Our model disrupts the disruptor and hold IPO's hostage.

Technology has already disrupted both travel and politics—we want to take that to the next level together. Travel is a trillion dollar industry, the BnB and rideshare model is valued at over $100 billion dollars and cannabis tourism is expected to also be a multi-billion dollar industry.


Millennials have surpassed Baby Boomers as the nation’s largest living generation, according to population estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Millennials, defined as those aged 18-34 in 2015, now number 90 million, far surpassing the 74.9 million Baby Boomers (ages 51-69). As the youngest generation with disposable income, they have secured their status as leaders in travel and tourism.


We believe that young voters are ready to embrace a new political party. A party that stands for progressive ideas, social movements, and global travel. We believe young voters want an entirely self-funding crypto strong political party—one which effectively eliminate lobbyists from bribing our politicians. TIP Political Party will be the first political party to embrace the internet and shared economic age. Blockchain visionaries will create travel platforms not yet imagined.


TIP Political Party, TIPBNB, Yang's People Bank  and our handpicked UBIBLACKCAUCUS dream team will ensure our brand survives and that we will be able to leave our children wealth and pave the road to black privilege worldwide. Yang will open the Bank and do the Math.

This is your opportunity to get involved and protect the lives and well-being of people in New York City and 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 better the lives of millions in America and around the world.

Only true political and economic power will fundamentally stop our people from being exploited, persecuted and killed in cold blood.


The founding fathers stacked the deck against us. However, there was no way for them to know that the Internet age and pandemic 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 millions of cyber warriors and be free from the talons of corporate vultures.

156 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. Today we migrate to our travel blockchain. 


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.”
