No Pride without Black Trans Liberation and Reparations--Not Rations, Pooh. Black trans liberation, much like Black liberation and the liberation of all oppressed peoples across the globe, requires a complete redistribution and reorganization of the current power structure/status quo--is GLAAD ready? Is GLSEN ready? Are you ready? Alt episode titles: How do we respond to white violence? (aka what's the proper procedure?) Coddling of the dominant narratives and who gets permission to be tardy to the party? The faux care economy and celebrity machine--who actually cares and do we, as marginalized peoples, need them to?

Parts 1 and 2 If the shoe fit, go grab some socks "without community, there is no liberation, only the most vulnerable and temporary armistice between an individual and [their] oppression."--Audre Lorde Join us for a special episode of Black People Tell Black History (yes, it's giving very much Anita Baker 365 days of the year same ol love) with our love Elle Moxley talking about community, how some of ya;ll wouldnt know what it is if it fell and hit you in the head and how market forces, capitalism and white supremacy are driving us away from each other, the theft of our culture is driving us away from each other in an attempt to lessen our pride in our shared identity and even that's not enough to assure solidarity, gentrification is physically doing the job of isolating Black folks from one another. So what do we do? When it comes to liberation, everybody won't come (and don't want to) Everybody is not your friend and how we (mostly Ebony) are resisting all of that and subsequently learning the hard way. Thank you, ReesaTeesa.

Alternate episode titles: -Dr. Joy James Might Break the Internet If You Would Let Her Upgrade You -This is a wonderful, Establishment, Trump and Swiftie friendly episode, absolutely nothing to shadow ban here, nope not at all (devil emoji) If you couldn't tell, we are super juiced to invite you all to a very special, mind reconfiguring politic shaking and shaping episode of Black People Telling Black History with the Icon herself, Dr. Joy James. Join us in chopping it up with Dr. James in what was a rich discourse spurned from her new book, In Pursuit of Revolutionary Love and New Bones Abolition: Captive Maternal Agency and the (after) life of Erica Garner, out now. This pre-Valentine's Day episode is all about love (see what I did there), but not the hallmark card consumer capitalist iteration of love but the love that has us stop our movements from being exploited and destabilized by capitalist interests from compadors or even well meaning actors who are subservient to the system. Agape driven love, what Dr. James demarcates as, "love as political will, communal care and protections...a spiritual, political phenomenon...our capacity to care for and defend ourselves from state violence while also nurturing and being nurtured by individual selves and communities." A love that Assata Shakur and Erica Garner had; both captive maternals, Dr. James argues, who driven by a love for Black people,  forged maroonage in their own right--"unrepentant insurrectionists, the unembraceable against whom the state exercises severe sanctions. A love Black political prisoners who are still being detained in US prisons today had, risking their lives and freedoms on behalf of Black liberation, a love beyond sentimentality, a love perhaps even for those who don't love us back (working on that).  Do not miss out on all this free game and don't say we ain't never did nothing for you. “Despite our care, emotional intelligence and political determination, without collective strategies, our caretaking freezes or falters. Becoming trained maroons capable of coordinating war resistance deflects or defies predatory violence." --Dr. Joy James Support for Dr. Joy James: https://www.commonnotions.org/new-bones-abolition https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/in-pursuit-of-revolutionary-love-joy-james/1141549285 https://www.bloomsbury.com/us/contextualizing-angela-davis-9781350368637/ Intro Diddley: Patience Sings (@patience.sings) Consider becoming a patron to support this podcast: www.patreon.com/ihartericka

Or alt title: Stealing Negros Spiritual Experiences. And I don't know how many times we have to say this. Even the existence of such a thing as "American" music is dubious. Black people created all genres of music in the US and despite the global influence and unabashed imitation of our Black American cultural art forms, we've profited the least from their reach and much propaganda persists: Black music is NOT the "soundtrack to America" nor did it arise from a blend of styles from a "multi-ethnic" population and when you say every genre has "Black roots", that's just an unnecessarily genteel way of saying that we created all genres of music in this country. Join us and the inimitable @patiencesings as we talk negro spirituals, the afropessimisms of prayer warriors and the merits of Black music made for and by Black people.

BIPOC, POC, NBPOC and other acronyms for Others...what are their origins and how do they inform a desire for and distance from Blackness across nation-states? Is the term POC a relic from slavery legislation in the US or a useful modifier that can unify the "global majority"?

A longie but goodie just in time for the fall of US imperialist projects in Afghanistan...and autumn. TLDR: It’s giving very much hating on the not rich who did not understand the assignment of shutting the fuck up and running politicians their propers for re-election. A tax on vibes. If "Taliban" means "student" in Pashto--the US is the teacher. Have you ever asked yourself why tax reform is such a contentious issue and has been for decades? Have you ever stopped to think that politicking, grandstanding and "fashion diplomacy" is part of moderate, centrist Democrats' pandering to a more leftist, "progressive" voter base but without alienating their prioritized white voter base too much (think Nancy Pelosi kneeling in the kente cloth sash in 2020)? There's a slavery era explanation for that: The tobacco rice and indigo that our ancestors grew and produced were considered in Alexander Hamilton’s own words “which must be capital objects in treaties of commerce w foreign nations” and precipitated the events that led to this country’s independence in 1776 following the Revolutionary War. His more famous quote, though, "no taxation without representation" portends a more glaring contradiction: imagine being mad you have to pay taxes to enrich the British whose royal companies, militaries, fleets and slavers sold and transported the Indigenous Africans you enslaved and calling TAXATION slavery while actually enslaving people? Tax the rich is again policy sloganeering and is a liberal democratic/partisan rallying cry that can’t happen in good faith in an oligarchy that siphons all its resources to an already massive defense budget. Just earmark our reparations, will ya? Maybe the majority of folks who at least have some semblance of a revolutionary or radical politic aren't hating on rich people or Met Gala attendees or AOC herself, but instead recognizing that she and other politicians across the spectrum are sworn to serve a country that used the international slave trade between Britain and Spain to generate revenue to build a domestic manufacturing infrastructure to keep taxes lowered for their most invaluable taxable import--Black people and whose Central Intelligence Agency created the Taliban to wrest power from the USSR's puppet pro-soviet government during the Soviet Afghan War in 1979-1989 as part of plan to distort the public's view of the barbaric, warmongering, misogynist primitive backward United States to continue competing for oil and other natural resources in Central Asia, including the global heroin trade to finance the invasion of other countries, arm the genocide of their number one ally in the region (the Israeli Government. See Kamala Harris's comments on Israel)while pretending to care about "women's right's" and immigration while whipping Haitian immigrants at the border. That said, shirking accountability for their complicities in systems of oppression to remain elected isn't above any of their paygrades--even the politicians you like!

Would love to hear an Ericka + Ebony music collaboration, but whatever you both choose will be great. 💗

Also the original caretakers of the land were many various Indigenous Nations including but not limited to the Hupa, Yurok, Miwok Pima and more.. You calling them Indigenous Mexicans is saying Indigenous Americans. You are disproving your own point with the wrong language
