Our Perspective in Haiti

Posted by dangerousnegro on

[caption id="attachment_881" align="alignleft" width="210" caption="(click to purchase fundraiser shirt)"][/caption] Fam, if you're fine with Anderson Cooper or someone else from CNN being the only voice you hear with news from Haiti, that's fine, but if you're interested in an African-centered perspective and you want to hear from real Haitians and let them tell their own story (unfiltered by mainstream media) then help us send our brothers from blackpowermedia to Haiti right now!  They're also taking a nurse with them and much needed supplies (toothpaste, soap, powdered milk, underwear, etc.).  These are our people and we need to hear from them...

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

by Demetrius D. Walker Yesterday I prayed feverishly for my friends, as they sought confirmation that their family members survived the massive 7.0 earthquake that leveled Haiti.  My only frame of reference for their hearts’ panic was the day the Twin Towers fell; a day in which my mother watched them crumble out of her 30th Floor window in Midtown, while frantically asking me what to expect next over the phone.  I’ll never forget sitting in my Vanderbilt dorm room, watching that declaration of war, and not knowing whether my mother would make it home to the Bronx.  Truly an...

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

by Demetrius D. Walker Nobody in Hollywood can hold a candle to Tyler Perry's meteoric rise to stardom in the last decade.  From niche market gospel plays to Black blockbuster bravado, Perry is the American Dream realized - a rags to riches phenomenon.  Despite Tyler Perry's cinematic and syndicated success, anchored in applying Christian family values to modern day strife, there are those who choose to label the brother a sell-out.  In defense of America's first Black movie mogul, these haters are nothing more than ornery crabs in a barrel. Critics of Tyler Perry's work tend to cite his caricature...

What The Murder of Derrion Albert Says About America

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

by Demetrius D. Walker You've seen it by now.  The whole world has seen the carnage that ensued amidst the brawl that resulted in Derrion Albert losing his life.  Shock, astonishment, and tearful resentment filled your psyche as you watched Black youth try their best to destroy each other on a Chicago street corner.  Some of you implicate the parents, while others blame the lack of police intervention.  Many of you disgustedly threw your arms in the air and simply muttered "ni**az" out of frustration.  Regardless of the reaction, few people can point to the true root of the Hip...
