ZIMMERMAN HAS BEEN FOUND NOT GUILTY. HE WALKS — SO WE SHALL DO THE SAME.
SUNDAY July 14 AND MONDAY July 15: DAYS OF ABSENCE, A TOTAL NATIONAL BLACKOUT.
Call in sick and tired. Call in angry. Call in crazy. But stay home from work if at all possible. Boycott transit. Boycott non-Black businesses (support Black-owned via www.aroundthewayapp.com). Wear black armbands in solidarity (especially if you feel you have to go to work for fear of losing your job, or if you are essential personnel).
The exception: The film “Fruitvale Station,” about the murder of Oscar Grant by a BART cop. If it is playing in your town, go see it. Discuss it. In addition to the film being a learning/politicizing tool, our attendance also will demonstrate Black economic power.
FYI: The photo is an Akoben (war horn), an Adinkra symbol. Meaning: a call to arms/urgent action and preparedness for action or battle. Shorthand: “Ride or die.”
