Nationwide -- As consumers across the U.S. gear up for holiday deals on sales merchandise, this Black Friday, a coalition urges buyers to make it a Shop Black Week. More than 100 groups have designated November 22 to 29 as Shop Black Week, a time of supporting Black-owned businesses by purchasing products, goods, or services from Black entrepreneurs.

The Shop Black Week campaign is a nationwide campaign that simply asks every American to support Black-owned businesses in November. Participating entities include organizations, Online-social groups and publications that have made the commitment to help spread the word with their social media accounts.

With the support of these entities and as new supporters join in, it is projected that this nationwide campaign could be the most successful economic movement of all time and be able to profoundly help thousands of Black-owned businesses in the process. The last big movement for Black people was the Million Man March, but organizers feel that the time has come for another big movement.

Roland Martin Gets The Scoop On Today's Legal Outcome Between Byron Allen And Comcast At The Supreme Court
Roland Martin And Byron Allen

By Kamau Austin

Roland Martin, the highly regarded news commentator, journalist, and host of one of the most popular Black daily news shows online engaged in a spirited interview with media mogul Byron Allen.  Byron Allen is one of the largest Black media owners in the US purportedly worth $400 million dollars and many consider him well on his way to being a billionaire with his growing empire of media assets like the Weather Channel.

The Interview streamed yesterday, November, 13th, 2019 and is galvanizing myriad sectors of the Black community like the NAACP, Urban League, members of the CBC, ADOS, FBA, and many others to social action because "Comcast is looking to eviscerate Civil Rights Laws of 1866" according to Byron Allen.

Congressmen Bobby Rush called for the break up of Comcast.  Also other pro-black groups like ADOS, FBA, and social media thought leaders like Dr. Boyce Watkins and Dr. Shonna Etienne, encouraged their followers to boycott or pass on seeing the new movie Harriet because it was a Comcast production (among other issues).

FORMER VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FOR 17 YEARS NOW EMPOWERS OTHER WOMEN THROUGH HER ORGANIZATION

Nationwide -- T'sharin Moncrief, a domestic violence survivor and advocate whose abuse started at the young age of 16-years old, has launched an organization called Women of Refined Gold, Inc. (WORG). Based in Montgomery, Alabama, the organization provides local resources, counseling services, classes, peer support, accompaniment and referrals for temporary shelter, food, and legal help.

T'sharin was just a teenager when her boyfriend began abusing her, and the physical and verbal abuse continued for 17 years.

After finally finding the courage to leave with her 3 daughters, she made it her mission to help other women do the same and to provide a safe haven for them to retreat to.

Domestic violence is one of those "things" that is so rarely discussed and often overlooked as not being a priority issue. But every 9 seconds, a woman is beaten or assaulted in the U.S alone, and the expenses accumulated from domestic violence cases amount to more than $37 billion a year. "I'd say it's a pretty severe and priority issue," says T'sharin.

See Why Highly Regarded Writer And Journalist Raqiyah Mays Feels Harriet Is An Empowering - "#Must See" Movie 
 Harriet Protecting Relative

By Raqiyah Mays
Saw Harriet last night. In the end, I found myself trying to remember the last time I watched something about slavery that left me feeling proud. Most recently, there was the TV Show "Underground" and now Harriet.

I found this movie empowering. Focused on the story of a woman who early on couldn't read or use a gun, and then literally, by the grace of God, escapes slavery - alone - and gains the courage to return to the South, multiple times, to save her family and hundreds of other slaves. I saw the clear goal of Harriet in showing the resilient strength of our people, especially sistas, and the cunning strategic tactics our ancestors used to survive and escape bondage. I felt relieved seeing this moment in our history documented cinematically for the world to see.

Now...
There are historical inaccuracies. Remember: It's Hollywood. "Based on a true story" means that there will be creative license taken. This is not a documentary.

SOME of what is in this film is true. The fiction comes with made-up characters that, according to the social media historians, did not exist. Of course, I can't say this for sure. I'd have to talk to director Kasi Lemmons to be precise.

The Movie Harriet Get's Railroaded On Issues Having Nothing To Do With The Portrayal Of This Legendary Icon Of The Underground Railroad 
 Harriet Poster

By Kamau Austin

Despite the furor and controversy I am supporting the film "Harriet."  The film directed by Kasi Lemmons and starring Cynthia Erivo as Tubman, Leslie Odom Jr., and Janelle MonĂ¡e, is based on the legendary, iconic anti-slavery and Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman.  Harriet Tubman, was a 5ft Moses like real life superhero who is glossed over in history and the kind of person I'd like to see portrayed in film and TV more often.  So why are Blacks boycotting the movie?

I've listened to ADOS leaders, woke folks, and others who have interesting commentary on why we should boycott the movie.  Some of this controversy has interesting merit however, a lot of the complaints on Harriet are reaching. But what are the criticisms for boycotting the movie?

In short the major complaints about the movie are:

  • The actress Cynthia Erivo, is British, of Nigerian descent - not ADOS (American Descendents Of Slaves).
  • The actress Cynthia Erivo made a statement some people considered insulting to Black Americans about her learning ghetto dialects or something.
  • The movie suggested a loving interest by the white slaver who is also portrayed as a savior in the movie.
  • They don't like the Black bounty hunter - he's a stereotype of hateful Black men.
  • Comcast which owns the film is attacking some Civil Rights Laws with Trumps DOJ.  In my opinion some of these are valid concerns but others are reaching.  Let's unwrap some of these critiques...

Cynthia Erivo gives a stirring performance singing the theme song she helped write
"Stand Up!"

Tanking in Sports -- and in Life; WHY?
 Tanking

By JV Howard

Tanking -  In a broad sense - is a term used to describe when sports teams lose games on purpose to secure some sort of future competitive advantage. The idea is totally anathema to the competitiveness associated with being the last man or last team standing - all things being equal.

Two teams take to the arena equal in the number, guided by rules of the sports, buoyed by the fans that buy tickets, tailgate, throw beer, hurl expletives, and wave towls, all in the quest to win but no less to feel the competitive edge from the team of their choice.

From the sound of gun, the tip off, toss up, kickoff, coin flip, first pitch, or bell the chase for victory is part the thrill of competition. Before each season there is a plethora of pre-coaching, preseason competition, OTA’s, winter training and film work necessary for success, yet, it is a hard sell to accept how athletes - elite - compartmentalize when to compete and when not.

While The Commercialized Music Industry Focuses On Gangster And Egoistic Versions Of Hip Hop Ironically Christian Rappers Lift Up A Social Message 
Rapper Derrick Minor In His Anti-Materialism 
By Kamau Austin, Publisher and Editor-and-Chief, The Black News Scoop and Scoop AMS Publications.

Back in the day, when pop music was the major commercial musical force - I welcomed the messages of hip hop music.  Pop icons Michael Jackson and Prince dominated the air waves.

However, to me the major media seemed to influence the message of the music largely toward eccentric opulence from these music icons.  However, I wondered where was the music of the masses of our people reflecting our harsh realities?

Hip Hop was in my discernment a reaction over against the political detachment of iconic driven pop music.  In short hip hop, spring-boarded in NYC, was a voice for young people in the inner cities.

Over the years into the 80's Hip Hop became a source of social commentary and critique.  Groups like Public Enemy, X-Clan, KRS-One, A Tribe Called Quest, and many others in a myriad of ways challenged the major media narrative towards positive messages of Black liberation and empowerment.  Since the rise of NWA and gangster or egoistic rap, progressive voices in hip hop, now largely a commercialized mainstream music, have been too often marginalized - enter Christian hip hop.

Ironically, Christian hip hop a sub-culture of rap, is picking up the mantle of progressive socially conscious rap.  Artists like LaCrae and Derek Minor are prolifically and profoundly making socially relevant music and lyrics with rhythmic poetic flourish.

They are - I dare say, the new social prophets with a powerful musical soul beat.  They call into question, unlikely mainstream Christian concerns like - police brutality, gentrification, and the prison industrial complex.  For instance listen to Derek Minor's rap "Free," below...
