Mayor Libby Schaaf must stand against racism at Oakland Whole Foods

Rally to end racism and white supremacy at Oakland Whole Foods
When: Tuesday, January 23rd
Time: 3:30-5:30PM




The Movement Newspaper
















WHERE: WHOLE FOODS MARKET 230 BAY PL, OAKLAND, CA 94612





















JAN 18, 2018 — Madam Mayor Libby Schaaf should have DA Nancy O'Malley bring criminal charges against Oakland Whole Foods for physical, verbal and emotional abuse of North American African workers and customers. We want compensation for damages done to North American Africans at Oakland Whole Foods.




















Whole Foods has been attacking folks of color within the past two years—going as far as attacking and racially profiling two black men, and a young, black teenager in recent reports. Their gentrifying organization must be held accountable for the threat they have posed to our community and it’s time that we make some noise to show resistance and intolerance to racial terror on any and all fronts.

Join us, next Tuesday (1/23) from 3:30-5:30 PM as we hold a noise demo in front of the store to demonstrate our intolerance for racism in our communities. Please bring any safe objects you have to make noise, signs, and bright spirits as we show up for the folks who were affected and targeted by this racist institution. It is imperative that we address racism on all fronts in our communities—especially in recent light of honoring King’s legacy and the path he has helped to pave with his work. We have to continue to take to the streets EVERY day, and address issues as we see them rather than depending on others to do the work first.

When: Tuesday, January 23rd
Time: 3:30-5:30PM
Where: Whole Foods Market 230 Bay Pl, Oakland, CA 94612

Direct all questions, comments, or concerns to:

wassgoodlucy@gmail.com

Hope to see you all there! Love & Solidarity!

Boycott Whole Foods Oakland and its racism!!


Yet another case of blatant racism and racial profiling at another new Oakland establishment has occurred! I’ve witnessed this multiple times at different stores in Oakland, we all know we have and too often I’ve just grit my teeth and accepted that as way it has to be. But this most recent incindent involving a  13 year old child buying gifts for his mother and him being racially profiled twice in the same store over a year apart!!??
http://fiveo.us/?p=334
That means there’s an issue. I want to force Whole Foods Oakland and board members of Oakland’s developers committee  to sit and have a discussion and be held accountable for this grievance against the black community. Please sign and help move this along, share it wide , give suggestions, I’ve never done something like this before but I couldn’t stay silent any longer , any help from established activists would be appreciated. We need change , I don’t know if it will happen in our lifetime but we have to try.

If I may speak for myself and her mother, Nisa Ra, we are very proud of our daughter for returning home to the Motherland. She was on the move in her mother's womb, a primo baby. She ran her way through Howard University on a track scholarship, graduated with a B.S. in Micro biology, pre-med, then switched to the arts. After a career in the arts at William Morris Agency and NIKE, she reached the glass ceiling and decided to return to Africa. See her interview with Al Jazeera.

Africans Rally against Trump shithole remarks

Public statement of concern about President Trump’s vulgar statement about Africa
By the African community in Sacramento

January 19, 2018                               

This week, we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a great man whose message of peace, justice and courage changed the course of history. A man whose proud and deep ancestral roots spring from the fertile shores of the Nile, Niger, Congo and Zambezi rivers of Africa.  
However, it is unfortunate that in this very week when people of goodwill all over the world pause to reflect and celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the United States of America President Donald J. Trump chose to debase our humanity as Africans, including Haitians, with the vulgarity as attributed to him that is not worthy of a repeat in this document. We stand today, and with respect to the office of the presidency, to reject and condemn without reservation the president’s characterization of African nations, as widely condemned by African governments and many others in the Americas and around the world. It is our conviction that his choice of words amounts to hate speech and has no place in any civil discourse. History reminds us that the world’s most horrific crimes always start with weaponized words and statements like these have no place in a civilized world or just leadership. When people are characterized as sub-human, it becomes too easy and inciting to subject them to sub-human treatment.
The African continent has withstood untold challenges through the course of human history, and remains the cradle of humanity. Our people were extracted against their will and enslaved for centuries in far regions of the world where they built today’s flourishing economies from the bend of their backs and the sweat of their brows, including the USA. We stand today to declare to all who care to listen that Africa and her more than a billion people and over 20 % of the world’s population will not be characterized as sub-human; this is very offensive. Our ancestors built the ancient pyramids of Egypt and the Sankore University in Timbuktu, built over 400 years before the American independence, and produced ancient texts that became roadmaps to science, mathematics and astronomy. Indeed, the history of the American greatness will be incomplete without Africa and her resilient peoples.
Our sons and daughters across the world continue to distinguish themselves in all fields of human endeavor. African immigrants contribute to the development of the country economically. Among the African immigrants in the United States are men and women of the Military, Medical Doctors, Pharmacists, First Responders, Lawyers, Judges, Legislators, Engineers, Business owners, Entrepreneurs, Innovators Investors, College/University Professors, Nurses, Teachers, and other careered persons who work hard and pay their taxes as well as support their families and obey the law. Failure to acknowledge these facts is unfortunate and sad. With 22 Nobel Laureates, 7 female presidents, several female Chief Justices, 4 of the 10 fastest growing economies in the world, a young and vibrant population; Africa’s time has come. We stand today to claim and affirm our rightful place of pride in this long journey of human existence and the promise of a greater future.
This most recent vulgar characterization of Africa(including her Diaspora) by the president, coupled with previous adverse or pejorative pronouncements against other immigrants  has the real potential to incite verbal or physical violence against African immigrants in the USA by persons who may act on the troubling remark or harbor racial animus.
Accordingly, we call on our elected officials, peace officers, educators, employers, and community leaders to ensure the protection of the human and civil rights of our people, especially from any form of hate crime that may result from the president’s hurtful speech. Further, we ask people in our communities to go about their daily lives without fear but remain vigilant, and to immediately report any incidents to the law enforcement authorities.
We thank all people of conscience who have spoken publicly against this hate speech. Your courage to stand with us and humanity puts you on the right side of history and restores our faith in human decency. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said at a 1965 public address at Hunter College in New York City on Human Rights Day, "The brotherhood of man is not confined within a narrow, limited circle of select people. It is felt everywhere in the world; it is an international sentiment of surpassing strength. Because this is true, when men of good will finally unite, they will be invincible.”

We affirm our belief in the great African tradition of Ubuntu. We remain committed to the use of dialogue in the quest for mutual understanding and respect in our diverse society.   

In Peace and Solidarity!

Why some African Americans are moving to Africa

SOURCE:
 AL JAZEERAAccra, Ghana -
 They have come from the big cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Thousands of them. And many refuse to return.
A new wave of African Americans is escaping the incessant racism and prejudice in the United States. From Senegal and Ghana to The Gambia, communities are emerging in defiance of conventional wisdom that Africa is a continent everyone is trying to leave.
It is estimated that between 3,000 and 5,000 African Americans live in Accra, the Ghanaian capital. They are teachers in small towns in the west or entrepreneurs in the capital and say they that even though living in Ghana is not always easy, they feel free and safe.
Take Muhammida el-Muhajir, a digital marketer from New York City, who left her job to move to Accra.
She says she moved, because despite her education and experience, she was always made to feel like a second-class citizen. Moving was an opportunity to fulfil her potential and avoid being targeted by racial violence.
She told Al Jazeera her story:

On life as a second-class citizen in the US...

"I grew up in Philadelphia and then New York. I went to Howard, which is a historically black university. I tell people that Ghana is like Howard in real life. It felt like a microcosm of the world. At university, they tell us the world isn't black, but there are places where this is the real world. Howard prepares you for a world where black people are in charge, which is a completely different experience compared to people who  have gone to predominantly white universities."
I can't say what's happening in America today is any worse than what's been happening at any other time.
MUHAMMIDA EL-MUHAJIR 

On her first trip to Africa...

"The first country I went to was Kenya. I was 15 and travelled with a group of kids. I was one of two black kids. I saw early that I could fit in and wasn't an outsider. Suddenly it switched, I came from America where I was an outsider, but in Africa, I no longer felt like that. I did graduate school in Ghana in 2003 and went back to New York and then moved to Ghana in 2014.
"I have no connection to Ghana. Some people in my family did tests, and we found ties to Senegal and The Gambia, but I don't think you can ever figure it out. No matter where you were sold or left the port, Senegal or Ghana, no one can be certain where you came from."
No matter where you were sold or left the port, Senegal or Ghana, no one can be certain where you came from.

On leaving New York for Accra...

"Even when you live in a place like New York as a black person, you're always an outsider.
"You hear stories about the richest black people, like Oprah Winfrey, getting shut out of a store or Jay-Z not being allowed to buy [an apartment]. Those things happen. It doesn't matter if you're a celebrity, you're a second-class citizen. This was the biggest issue for me.
"In America, you're always trying to prove yourself; I don't need to prove myself to anyone else's standards here. I'm a champion, I ran track and went to university, and I like to win, so I refuse to be in a situation where I will never win."
You might not have electricity, but you won't get killed by the police either.
MUHAMMIDA EL-MUHAJIR 

On moving to Ghana...

"There are amenities that I am used to at home in New York - like parties, open bars and fashion, so when I realised I could do the same things in Africa as I could back in the US, I was sold. There is also a big street art festival here, and that was the difference from when I came [as a student]. I saw the things that I love at home here, so I decided that now is the time."

On Ghanaian reactions...

"When Ghanaians find out that I live here, they're usually confused about why I chose to live here as an American. There is definitely certain access and privilege being American here, but it's great to finally cash in on that because it doesn't mean anything in America.
"There are also plenty of privileged Ghanaians; if you take away race there's a class system."

On the 'Blaxit' documentary...

"In my documentary, I chose five people that I've met since I've been here and every one of them went to a black college in the US. It's something that prepares you mentally to realise you aren't a second-class citizen. Something like that can help you make a transition to live in Africa.
"I made Blaxit because of this wave of African-Americans moving to Africa. This trend started to happen around independence of African countries, but the new wave [comprises] people who come to places like this. This new group has certain access in America and comes here to have that lifestyle in Africa.
"Unbeknown to us, we're living out the vision that [Ghanaian politician and revolutionary] Kwame Nkrumah set out for us, of this country being the gateway to Africa for the black diaspora.
"I don't want people to think that Africa is this magic utopia where all your issues will go away. It's just that some of the things you might face in America as a black person - you won't have to suffer with those things here.
"You might not have electricity, but you won't get killed by the police either.
"I want people to understand that they have options and alternatives. Most black people in America don't know that these options exist; they think they have to suffer because there's nowhere else to go. But no, there are other places."

On the prospect of more African-Americans moving...

"I think more will come when they begin to see it as a viable alternative. But it's not easy and it's not cheap. I can't say what's happening in America today is any worse than what's been happening at any other time. I think now is the time that people are starting to see they can live somewhere else."

Lorraine Hansberry, A Raisin in the Sun




Salamishah Tillet
January 12, 2018
New York Times
For Lorraine Hansberry, art was not simply an expression of her civil rights concerns but a space where she could wage racial and gender battles and find resolutions that were more liberating than the law.

David Attie, Lorraine Hansberry was the first African-American woman to have a play produced on Broadway, with “A Raisin in the Sun.”

A few months before her death from pancreatic cancer in early 1965, the playwright Lorraine Hansberry spoke about a letter to the editor that she sent to, but that was ultimately rejected by, The New York Times. Standing before a racially integrated Town Hall audience in New York, Ms. Hansberry, then 34, sought to counter the growing white liberal criticism of the racial militancy expressed by a younger generation of African-Americans.
“And I wrote to The Times and said, you know, ‘Can’t you understand that this is the perspective from which we are now speaking?’” Hansberry said. “It isn’t as if we got up today and said, you know, ‘what can we do to irritate America?’ you know. It’s because that since 1619, Negroes have tried every method of communication, of transformation of their situation from petition to the vote, everything. We’ve tried it all. There isn’t anything that hasn’t been exhausted.”
This image of Hansberry — exasperated, fatigued and sympathetic to the nationalist ideologies that would later blossom in the Black Power movement — might surprise those who know her only through the success of “A Raisin in the Sun.” With that much-lauded play, about a working-class African-American family on the verge of racially desegregating a Chicago suburb, Hansberry became the first African-American woman to have a show produced on Broadway, in 1959.
But for Tracy Heather Strain, showing there was much more to Hansberry than “A Raisin in the Sun” was the imperative driving the making of “Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart,” which debuts Jan. 19 on “American Masters” on PBS. This includes her radical leftist politics as well as her struggle to identify publicly as a black lesbian in the 1950s and 1960s. “I started with the notion that people did not know who Lorraine Hansberry was,” Ms. Strain said. “I didn’t either, really. You see these pictures, she’s wearing the pearls, her hair’s all done. She’s an icon, the picture of success during the civil rights movement.”
Ms. Strain, 57, was 17 when she discovered Hansberry. But it was not through “A Raisin in the Sun,” which has had critically acclaimed revivals on Broadway (in 2004 and 2014) and has inspired other work like Bruce Norris’s “Clybourne Park” and Kwame Kwei-Armah’s“Beneatha’s Place.” Her introduction came in 1978 in her hometown, Harrisburg, Pa., during a performance of “To Be Young, Gifted and Black,” a play that Hansberry’s ex-husband and literary executor, Robert Nemiroff, adapted posthumously from her unpublished letters and diary entries.
“I’d never encountered a young black woman sharing her inner thoughts before, and those thoughts and observations were remarkably similar to the ones that I had about things like race, gender and class,” Ms. Strain said. “It stayed in the back of my mind for a long time.”
As she pursued a career in documentaries, producing and directing documentaries like “Unnatural Causes” (2008) and “I’ll Make Me a World: A Century of African-American Arts” (1999), Ms. Strain found herself drawn to her subject. She produced and directed a short TV segment on “A Raisin in the Sun” in 1999. Five years later, she met with Chiz Schultz, a film producer who not only had exclusive access to Hansberry’s materials, but was also in search of a director for his Hansberry documentary. (Mr. Schultz is an executive producer on the film, which was budgeted at $1.5 million.)
Through interviews with the original cast of the stage and film versions of “A Raisin in the Sun,” including Sidney Poitier, Ruby Dee and Louis Gossett Jr., as well as her fellow artist-activist, Harry Belafonte, Ms. Strain tries to capture the revolutionary nature of Hansberry’s play. “It was like Lorraine opened a new chapter in theater,” Ms. Dee recalls in the film, describing the standing ovation and riveting response on opening night. “That included black people.”
LaTanya Richardson Jackson, the narrator of “Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart,” whose performance as Lena Younger in the 2014 Broadway revival of “A Raisin in the Sun” received a Tony Award nomination, sees the character of Beneatha, Lena’s adult daughter, as ahead of her time. Not only does she turn down the advances, and in one case a marriage proposal, from her two male suitors, but she also plans to be a doctor and proclaims to be atheist in a staunchly Christian household.
“She had a very feminist, ‘why not me’ point of view, whereas her mother just assumed the status quo of ‘your brother should lead the family,’” Ms. Jackson said. “She respected that, but she also challenged that his notion of living was any better than hers.”
Like Beneatha, Hansberry was an intellectual in an era when women and African-Americans were denied full admission into that rarefied category. “The stereotype of African-Americans in this country was that we weren’t thinkers, but Hansberry was thinking, batting around ideas, putting forth ‘what ifs’ and challenging suppositions that everyone else took for granted,” Ms. Jackson said.
The film emphasizes that despite the success of “A Raisin in the Sun,” Hansberry was frustrated with the common interpretation of it as a play of optimism or integration. Her family history helped shape her beliefs about the limits of turning to the courts for racial justice. Her parents’ legal challenge of Chicago’s restrictive racial housing covenants, in a case that went to the Supreme Court in 1940, was successful, but black and white people remained segregated and mob violence often greeted the African-American families that moved in, such as hers. And “my father died a disillusioned exile in another country,” Hansberry lamented at that Town Hall meeting.
Hansberry responded to her father’s fate by moving beyond theater to pursue her larger goal of social change. Seeking to underscore the racial particularities of her play, for example, she tried again with a film version of “A Raisin in the Sun.” The studio rejected her first two screenplay drafts and finally accepted the third one; ultimately, the film was not as successful as the play.
“Hansberry experimented with a variety of forms, which includes the essay, long-form fiction, short stories as well being a visual artist and a painter,” said Imani Perry, author of the forthcoming “Looking for Lorraine: A Life of Lorraine Hansberry” and a professor of African-American studies at Princeton. “And she was also was fairly ecumenical in terms of her political activism.” Hansberry was concerned with racial justice, colonialism and feminism; she joined the Communist Party and led the Young Progressives group at the University of Wisconsin in 1948.
For Hansberry, however, art was not simply an expression of her civil rights concerns but a space where she could wage racial and gender battles and find resolutions that were more liberating than the law.
The documentary also wrestles directly with her sexuality, rather than avoid or allude to Hansberry’s same-sex relationships (the way some recent documentaries on James Baldwin and Nina Simonehave). Her lesbianism was a source of conflict and comfort and helped shape her feminist politics. The film also recognizes that even though Hansberry never denied her attraction to women, she did not actively publicize it.
Instead, as she was working on the play that canonized her place in the civil rights movement, she was also writing, under the initials L.H.N. or L.N., letters to “The Ladder,” the first subscription-based lesbian publication in the United States. Hansberry’s preoccupation with women’s financial and sexual independence was not limited to these semi-anonymous letters, but a theme that she infused throughout her work, even “A Raisin in the Sun.”
Though she may have written in an era that precedes “what we think of mainstream feminist movement,” Ms. Perry said, “Hansberry stands out today because she was thinking about what a feminist future looks like.”
