Today is the 45th Anniversary of the slaughter of Fred Hampton. Mr. Hampton, Chicago’s Black Panther leader, was brutally murdered by the police in a raid soon to be forty-five years ago on the Chicag...o’s West side. Months later, a federal investigation showed that only one shot was fired by the Panthers, although that number remained in dispute. Police fired 82 to 99 shots. Many saw this raid as a pretext to kill Fred Hampton, 21 years old. As he stated, “You have to understand that people have to pay the price for peace. You dare to Struggle, you dare to win.” Mr. Hampton also said, ” You can kill a revolutionary, but you can never kill the revolution.” To read more of my blog which includes other leaders such as Bobby Seale, Geronimo Pratt-Tupac's Godfather, Angela Davis and more, visit debateandswitch.wordpress dot com See More

Twas a week before Christmas and I made a plan
To cut out the turkey, to cut out the ham
To share with my neighbor, my friend, e’en my foe...
The joys of God’s goodness that I’ve come to know
So I’ll eat less food and make sure that I share
My good fortune in community – because I REALLY CARE
So monies I’d spend on pizzas, chocolate and chips
Will go to the food drive – and won’t touch my lips
I can’t do it all, but I want to be there
To give back where I can, I’m willing to share
Join us this holiday season . . . IN GIVING . . .

MOMMAS TURN IN YOUR GANGBANGERS AND RECEIVE $1,000.00. Teens must be at risk with CRIMINAL RECORDS. The teens will be placed in a 6 wk leadership BOOT CAMP. Mommas know their teens are in gangs, th...ey feed them, house them, and clothe them.
Wealthy Chicagoans would love to finance this program. The city of the PRESIDENT should be embarrassed and ashamed. DO NOT GIVE YOUR MONEY TO THE PRESIDENT - GIVE IT TO A PROGRAM FOR THE OUT OF CONTROL YOUTH. What is wrong with Chicago - are we stupid or what????? TO LET A BUNCH OF GANGS RUIN OUR REPUTATION AND HAVE US LIVE IN FEAR WHILE THEY KILL OPENLY IN OUR STREETS IS HORRIBLE.

CHICAGO MAN UP!!!!!!!!!!
