  • Trauma is the buzz taking place in communities that care to address the affects of colonialism. “Colonialism” the lead cause for this trauma is not openly spoken about in all these forums. Instead the focus is […]

  • very eye opening, thanks for sharing!! “The problem with Western media sources is that none of them are on the ground in North Korea to report on what they see; and all ground sources from the country, directly contradict the Western media. We get all of our information about North Korea from South Korea, who have a clear motive in lying about…[Read more]

  • while i had planned to walk with the anti colonialism and not say much, as we were touring old city Philadelphia our ancestors spirits took over and made the labels of colonialism fall to the ground. then the tour ended where Margret Washington went back on her word to her husband to free all their slaves. Pretty deep experience and so happy i was…[Read more]

  • thanks, Desmond for this comment, so important to point out the work being done to #EndRapeCulture this campaign taught me that some of the white people pulling the chuck wagon are comfortable with the delusion of superiority and aren’t really looking to end colonialism just pretending or not totally connecting to the movenment of freedom for all.

  • Looking to erase stigmas i joined EDGE in taking this Colonialism Art Installation on a tour of Olde City Philadelphia. The installation was gifted to EDGE by a Navajo Nation (Black Mesa) artist friend with the […]

    • This is my favorite blog year to date. It is a great combination of written word and video. I saw the pictures of the display on some other form of social media. It was nice to read and hear why they were displayed. It is also nice to see people out there raising concerns about the holiday itself. I see all to many “activist” preach everyday until the day of celebration for these types of holidays. People want to make the world better, but refused to talk about history that got us to the place that we are in today. I don’t understand how anyone expects to change the world by celebrating lies multiple times a year.

    • while i had planned to walk with the anti colonialism and not say much, as we were touring old city Philadelphia our ancestors spirits took over and made the labels of colonialism fall to the ground. then the tour ended where Margret Washington went back on her word to her husband to free all their slaves. Pretty deep experience and so happy i was able to experience. Would love to spark more conversations on white/black superior/inferior McCarthyism/Blacklisting mentality in the future. Some of the white people in this group were put in an uncomfortable position when i started raising the awareness of the delusion they live daily. i pointed out that they have been stripped of their culture as much as African Americans and are bullied into being white, hope to get some interviews with them on this topic, which is a state of mind turned into racist culture.

    Federal Funds for programs that assist our most vulnerable members of society that can’t be privatized are being cut from the budget. Gov. Corbett destroyed the accountability grant here in Pennsylvania with […]

    • Programs like LIHEAP are impairitive for people who live in poverty. If funding is lot it will likely cause circumstance where money is funneled into to the state to clean up the problem they made. They will use that money to make change through authority, which has not worked ever.

  • our city and state has funds to fund our schools please don’t be fold, there is plenty of money marked for festivals, prisons and whatever. holding them along with the school board accountable is the challenge.

  • thanks Desmond for your response, you added another element to the discussion when you mention how your family moved out of Philly like so many are doing because of the dismantling of public resources like public education and our right to breathe. i will let education advocates know about your interest in interviewing them for your show, we have…[Read more]

  • Going on seven years now that i have been exploring various issues and concerns that affect the most vulnerable members of our society . There is a reoccurring theme of camouflaged oppression in most every […]

    • Education is the key to turning this world around. Many people talk about change, but have the slightest idea of what it takes to change. I am not suggesting that everyone needs to know everything, but I think some of the basics are being neglected. No matter if we want to change the world through protest or the court room we must be informed on processes work, and what parts we play in the process.

      There are many American citizens running around declaring The United States of America as the best country in the world. I believe they do that because they are not educated to how American compares to other countries. This reference https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/best-education has the top five countries for education. America is not on the list. You don’t have to look at this reference do a search for yourself. Even as you go back in time you will see that America has not been rated number one in a long time. You can see the same is true with things like infrastructure, health care, and civil rights. (WHATTTTT, civil right?— yea )

      Philadelphia does not care about public education or their people. There has been two taxes raise on cigarettes and one on soda. Each one of these tax raises were supposed to be for public education yet there are still plans to shut down school. This has also happen with public library. Philadelphia has keeps taking away the safest place for kids, and then throws them in jail for getting stuck in the street life.

      I am willing to go any place that will help educate the parents of that area. Philadelphia is my home town. My mother took control, educated herself enough to get my three siblings, my grandma, and myself from the city. To me this means that others can do that same. I am not saying the best way to fix Philadelphia is to leave, and never look back, but to rise above their oppression and empower others. I may not live in Philadelphia currently, but I try to make the big on the people who live there by connecting with their activist.

      @aliciadorsey2, if you know anyone who wants to come on any of my shows and speak about what is happening in Philadelphia please send them my way. I am willing to listen and see how I can help within my means.

    • thanks Desmond for your response, you added another element to the discussion when you mention how your family moved out of Philly like so many are doing because of the dismantling of public resources like public education and our right to breathe. i will let education advocates know about your interest in interviewing them for your show, we have plenty to share with you and your audience. we want the school reform commission to abolish themselves and for pennsylvania to properly fund all of our schools. Gov. Corbett destroyed the Accountability Block Grants for private use so now there is a push for an accountable school district aka an elected board that i’m not to crazy about but will run for one of those positions if that is the route taken because i’m pass tired of all the corruption taking place on our most vulnerable citizens!! thanks for being you and i will be in touch soon!!

      • Many people desire to get out of the cities. They are over populated, under funded, and have been historical oppressed.
        Taxes have been raised in the name off school funding more times than I can count since 2008, but I have seen no progress for Philadelphia school system, nor many other aspects that need growth.

    • what is not talked about in the mainstream media is the fiscal problems major cities are facing . Unlike the federal government cities are states can not borrow infinite amounts of money.

      • That is something that needs to be talked about. However, the federal government is really borrow money. Money is just made.

        • our city and state has funds to fund our schools please don’t be fold, there is plenty of money marked for festivals, prisons and whatever. holding them along with the school board accountable is the challenge.

    • I know and believe that. All levels of government are the same. They send more money on stuff that males a negative impact to society than a positive one. There are some positive things for the community, but the turn outs are generally same. The really large events are usually filled with people from out of town. The local events and groups that do the most good for the city are privately funded. Collected and produced funds need to be granted to the right places.

  • There is fight over air quality in Philadelphia that needs your attention. Are you aware that Septa is planning to bring fossil fuels to our communities. Communities that currently have high asthma rates are being […]

    • Do you remember the guy from the radio station in West Philly? He was really educated on this subject. I believe he knows a lot of people in this field. If he is not involved, which I kinda doubt, you should contact him. His name is Jasper Jones. If you do not have information for him, and you want to contact him I still have his information.

  • so at this point i don’t think i’m going to make it down there for several personal reasons but please share with me any protest unrelated to donald when you return. rebutall protest r related, so please show something different!!

  • those individual causes are being protested because our president elect threatens their livelihood. why do people protest? for the most part because they were affected and feel there is injustice. Everyone traveling to D.C. the weekend of the 20th-22nd is there to either support or protest the racist president elect. that is the major roads headed there!!

  • yes and i added a photo to the post for you!!

  • the birth of the tea party and others that we don’t know much about. the constitution was created over gunfire, if i’m not mistaken, Adams wife turned the white house out and kept her husband from the embarassment.

  • hi Susie,

    all businesses could go either way the advantage of the cooperative business model is that in most cases the workers are the owners, get along well and there is no boss!! promotes collective thinking to function as a business community, often passing on skills to each other. this is also a movement to gain more control in our lives…[Read more]
