Welcome to BTR NEWS w/ Scotty Reid as I broadcast from behind the enemy lines of Corporate USA. We have a guest joining us tonight…
Tune in for an hour or more of news, information, social and political commentary.
Joining us today is author Malcolm Hoover who recently published “144 Poems and Essays for God, Love, Truth, Justice, Peace and Hip Hop“.
Mr. Hoover writes in a thank you to supporters,
“This book is the start of my “Sankofa Journey”, my give back to the community and people that brought me forward. This book is me from age 12 (I Am a Big Blue Frog) to 45 (Ferguson), documenting my growth as a writer, father and thinker. I hope you find something of yourself here, because I put my whole self in here, scars and all.”.
Malcolm Shabazz Hoover is a Bay Area Native circa 1970. Raised between Philadelphia and The Bay, He started writing poetry, fiction and video games at the age of 12, and studied writing under Linda Goss, Toni Bambara, Sonia Sanchez and bell hooks. Malcolm is the product of an activist family, and is the father to a 21 year old son, Aaron and a 10 year old daughter Laila. A former writer for the now defunct but seminal 4080 Hip Hop magazine, he blogs and rages against the machine at deepculture.blogspot.com.
Now you know we have to cover the terrorist and white supremacists flag coming down off State capital grounds in South Carolina and the bones of the mighty white racist enslaver Nathan Bedford Forrest being kicked out a city park in Memphis, Tennessee.
Instead of saying “good job” to those who practiced Black self respect in their efforts to abolish monuments, symbols and dreams of white supremacy where they live, you know there have to be some other Black people throwing salt on the game.
This seems very discourteous and promotes gossiping and arguing among black people who should be uniting in future efforts to root out and utterly destroy the system of racism upon which USA INC was founded. Perhaps if enough non-white people united instead of minimizing the efforts of others, they can focus and get in on the war against white supremacists instead of sitting on the sidelines like hecklers during a sporting match.
