Why is Lebron James bigger than basketball?

July 8, 2010: Johannes Mehserle, the cop who murdered Oscar Grant, essentially got a free pass from a jury who gave him a minimal sentence. This was overshadowed by “The Decision” made by Lebron James to move to the Miami Heat.

July 11, 2014: Although Palestine is being bombed by Israel, this news is overshadowed by Lebron James’ decision to go back to Cleveland.

Take 2 minutes of your time to see this animated clip of where $500 million of our US tax dollars have gone since 2002. Instead of this money going towards education, employment, healthcare, and other social programs here in the US, it’s being used to commit grave human rights violations in the Philippines through President Aquino’s counterinsurgency program, which receives close guidance/training from the US military.

We commemorate the legacy of El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, also known as Malcolm X, on the day he was assassinated, February 21st, 1965.

Words cannot describe his revolutionary contributions to the struggle for liberation and self-determination. We can only witness the products of his words and actions in the work that goes on to this day by warriors who he inspired to fight and free us all from what Malcolm called, “this miserable condition that exists on this earth.”

We must see in our organizing work that there are thousands upon thousands of potential Malcolm X’s, from the rotten schools to the prisons. There is hope.

He famously said, “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” So we ask you, where do you stand in the face of injustice?

Rest in Power Malcolm. You will never die as long as we fight for the change you hoped to see. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
