OP-ED: How revolutionary self-care becomes an act of radical activism

This year during Black History Month, a 23 year old Black Lives Matter activist, MarShawn M. McCarrell committed suicide on the steps of the Ohio State House. Hours before he took his life MarShawn posted on his Facebook saying “My demons won today, I’m sorry.” This reality breaks me. It made me think about how I talk about my dreams but never my nightmares. As millennial blacktivists we’re constantly throwing ourselves on the line for our causes not realizing the emotional impact. I would like…See More

When Rio de Janeiro was elected in 2009 to host the 2016 Olympic Games, the authorities then said one of the event's legacy would be a safer city for all. But less than a month for the beginning of the games, the practical effect has signaled that what comes ahead is a humanitarian catastrophe.



From 2009 now, around 2500 people were killed by the police only in Rio, and very few cases have been properly judged. The same security policies applied in the games of…

OP-ED: Trump’s acceptance speech: a Nixon-esque appeal to white America's fears

Posted on July 22, 2016 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

Last night Donald Trump gave the longest nomination speech in 40 years. It apparently takes more than 75 minutes to attempt to convince Americans they are doomed without you. The Donald wants you to know you will be overrun by criminals, immigrants, criminal immigrants, terrorists, and economic oppression unless you vote for him. But if you do, he will make everything better “very, very, fast”. Because in his mind "crime and poverty" (i.e. non-republican black people), illegal…

At the Republican National Convention this past Monday, the overall air was one of frenzy and action. Most of the attention though, was focused on the outside- as there were thousands rallied to protest Donald Trump's candidacy. The largest protest of the day: "End Poverty Now, March For Economic Justice."- took on a different tone, as it was headed by "Prophets of…
