    Necessary Blackness Ep: 105 – CPS Legal Kidnapping of Black Children: Is Your Child Next?

    Necessary Blackness Ep: 105 – CPS Legal Kidnapping of Black Children: Is Your Child Next?

     



    In this episode of Necessary Blackness Podcast, we speak with Bekura Wallah Shabazz about Child Protective Services (CPS) illegal kidnapping of her granddaughter Sevyn and how they ignored the law, violate constitutional rights and fabricated evidence with a brazen arrogance totally without fear of reprimand, reprisal or consequences for their illegal actions.

    We talked about how Black children are being taken away from their parents by CPS far more often than white children, reflecting a racial disparity in the system that harks back to the days when African children were kidnapped from their homeland and parents to be brought to America. We discussed the financial incentive to placed children in foster care and why transracial adoption is harmful to black children.

     

    The foster care system is just a holding place for children until they are old enough to go to prison. One of the earlier founders of Child Welfare now known as the Foster Care system was Charles Loring Brace, a racist Neanderthal who stated: “the purpose was to prevent these dangerous classes from exploding into rage against the rue of capital”. The premise of foster care has not changed and is a national crisis for all to be concerned about

    Necessary Blackness Ep: 103 -The Truth Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know About Madam C.J. Walker

    Necessary Blackness Ep: 103 -The Truth Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know About Madam C.J. Walker

     

    In this episode, we debunk the lies and half-truths regarding the Netflix docu-series, “Self-Made: Madam C.J. Walker. We interviewed Eric Majette Jr, who Dick Gregory referred to as the ‘Gatekeeper of the Jewels’. Mr. Majette is a historian and founder of the African-American Cultural Heritage Collection (AACHC) and owner of the original collection of Madam C.J. Walker artifacts.

    The over-fictionalization done in this movie constitutes an opposition to the truth and was intentional. Kasi Lemmon, the director utilized the same approach when directing “Harriett” and we were equally enraged.

    Why embellish the truth to create a story arc when the original story was just as fascinating and inspiring?

    Necessary Blackness Ep: 102 – Blood Sport & White American’s Obsession w/ Guest Crumb

    Necessary Blackness Ep: 102 – Blood Sport & White American’s Obsession w/ Guest Crumb

    In this episode of Necessary Blackness Podcast, we spoke with Crumb of CrumbTV on Blood Sport and White America’s pleasure for cruelty and suffering. The cruel Elizabethan and Jacobean animal sport became Anglo-American pass time sport that reveals the darker aspect of their personality trait and mental disorder. The public exhibition of barbarous sports can be traced back to the Romans, to the maltreatment of slaves and what we are witnessing in the world of Boxing and MMA.

    We talk about the Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder fight in all its complexities and details.

Great Podcast but Homegirl trippin

I definitely agree with a lot of the views presented in the podcast. But homegirl bashing Cardi B based off the simple fact she is simply appealing to the already problematic system of the female rapper blows me. I find it very shallow that just because Cardi B “twerks” and was a stripper she feels as though it is okay to call this woman who has worked herself to the bone to make money to support herself, her family, and positively affect change in the black culture a Bafoon. Maybe focus more on why so many Cardi’s and Nicki’s are pushed to the forefront rather than bashing the person for simply being themselves. I encourage her to open her mind to the fact you do not have to be necessarily conservative to be a positive voice for the culture.
