The following persons have been drafted to establish the BAMBD Media Team. The team will be in charge of media matters, e.g., press releases, interviews, feature stories, promotional materials. BAM ancestor Amiri Baraka said we must be prepared to shoot down any negative stories about BAMBD that are not factual but only part of the disinformation campaign by you know who. Baraka said we have the intelligence to immediately counter-act  and smash any lies and distortions spread by you know who and the playa haters, jealous and envious Negroes, yes, those with the crabs in the barrel mentality.
