Where Are You In Your Boycott Florida Effort?

Where Are You In Your Boycott Florida Effort?

It’s been several months & about 50yrs to long, since we’ve had a serious, organized movement against racist oppression in the US. Those involved in should pat themselves on the back for opening their eyes & coming to the realization that these unpunished murders, unjust incarcerations, profiling while driving and shopping won’t end unless we do something about it.

Those that choose to ignore it or no different than the House Negros of slavery or the indifferent Negros of the Civil Rights era, that didn’t support the movement but certainly benefited from it.

So how has the Boycott Florida Effort personally effected your habits?
Have had to struggle letting go of your former favorite brands?
Have you experience pressure from family or friends to frequent Florida based restaurants or companies?
Have you found substitutes for businesses you may have patronized before?
Have thought that any Florida based business was irreplaceable and find you can’t boycott a particular business?

Please share your experience with us, so others may be enlightened and encouraged. Thank you

A Plan to Put an End to Racially Profiled Killing of Minorities- MXGM Proposal “No More Trayvon Martins”

Every 36 hours an African American is murdered by a police officer, security guard or vigilante in  this nation. The majority are unarmed committing no crime.

Last year the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement (MXGM) published 2 reports documenting these facts and proposing a comprehensive plan to bring this emergent crisis to an end. It’s entitled ” It received little national attention, however this can not go on ignored.

I would encourage everyone to please read these reports and the plan and begin forming a united, organized effort to start it TODAY. I’m doing everything I can to contact the original author of the plan & would ask you to do the same.

But even if we don’t get a response, this is something that must be done.  Please read the two reports and the proposed plan of action below.

OPERATION GHETTO STORM 2012 (documenting the rate of deaths of unarmed black persons executed by authority figures)

EVERY 36 HOURS REPORT ON THE EXTRAJUDICIAL (IE OUTSIDE OF NORMAL LEGAL PROCEDURE) KILLING OF BLACKS IN THE UNITED STATES & PROPOSAL ON A NATIONWIDE PLAN OF ACTION TO END IT.

What other race can make a list like this?

This Must End Now, Make an Example out of Florida, the rest of the nation will follow suit. Don’t do anything and it keeps going and going. #BoycottFlorida, destroy their economy and other states will follow suit. It worked for Civil Rights, The Arizona Boycott and the Miami-Dade Boycott of 1995. It will work today. But only you can make it work. Do it nationwide. Here’s list of Florida owned businesses you can boycott in your state https://teesepowell.wordpress.com/2013/07/22/how-to-boycott-florida-from-any-state-list-of-florida-based-corps/

You Can’t Vote in Civil Rights-Boycotting Florida Produced Products For Justice, in the wake of Donald Maison Jr Shooting

   If you are currently boycotting Florida’s economy by not purchasing their products and services in any state, you’re doing a lot. You are standing up for the principle and the injustice of the genocide of our young men. This country only understands one language, not English, MONEY!! Corporations run this country, especially since Citizen’s United Supreme Court decision gave them the same status as people and they can donate all the money they want to candidates.  Not sure what products are Florida based? Click here. Do it in any state.

  SO VOTING ALONE DOESN’T HELP! EVERY CANDIDATE IS INDEBTED TO SOME CORPORATION OR OTHER. The biggest influence you can have in politics, right now is the much celebrated “non violent civil disobedience” of Dr.King. Hit them where it hurts, in the pockets, then you will see change. Just like back then, it holds true today.

 You can not “vote” in civil rights. Repeat you can not vote in civil rights. How did gays get the right to marry? Supreme Court decision. What ended segregation? Same thing. What ended slavery? War. No civil rights are won by vote.  EVER, EVER EVER!! And they never will be, because people are not going to give up power willingly.

    Young people don’t realize that if someone hadn’t boycotted, sat int, marched, fought wars, African Americans would be slaves or second class citizens now. People died so blacks people could vote, be free, get education, etc. It didn’t change by itself or because racists felt like giving it to us. We had to fight. To stop these racially profiled killings, we have to fight again. Make an example out of Florida, so no state feels they can kill our young men & not feel the wrath. Pls consider boycotting Florida produced products too. Older folks have no excuse, if you lived through any of the Civil Rights Movement. you know better.

     Our unarmed young black men have been slaughtered for CENTURIES. It’s ok in this country to kill a young black man for just being black right now. Emmett Till, Sea Bell, Amadou Diallo, Trayvon Martin, Israel Hernandez (hispanic but a minority still), Troy Davis, Jordan Davis, Oscar Grant, how many bodies do we need to count?  Name ONE other race that you can make a list like that? I’ll wait? And being horrendously maimed or unjustly imprisoned-

PLEASE LOOK AT THIS LATEST CASE, 8yrs old. Donald Maison Jr. It has to stop now!! Make a example out of Florida, break their economy and all states will be on notice. If you kill or maim our children based on race, you will. suffer. Remember when companies lose money they make moves. Buses lost money in Boycotts, buses desegregated. Worked for Dr.King, will work for us now..  No civil rights leader of today is taking this on as an issue wholeheartedly. They hoop and holla each time and then move on. You can be a part of ending it now!

     We are not powerless. You can join Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Mary, Mary, Gerald Levert, Laila Hathaway, ESPN columnist Scoop Jackson,  and other principled people who may not be speaking out because they are under corporate contracts.  Use your economic power! Boycott Florida until the laws change and show America African Americans do have strength.
