I'm raising reparations for the Black Power Blueprint because I take responsibility for the fact that as a white person, I benefit from the oppression of black people.
UHURU! (UHURU means freedom in Swahili) On October 17th, 2020 there will be a nationwide March for Reparations to African People. The reparations raised will be going to the Black Power Blueprint: an organization doing vital work to overturn poverty and oppression in African communities, through economic and political power in the hands of African people. This is a call to action, specifically for WHITE PEOPLE. Please, if you are unable to attend a March, stand in solidarity by paying reparations. Let us all take responsibility for the fact that we benefit from the oppression of African people, and more than that let us do something to change it.
The March for Reparations to African People is a major fundraising campaign to raise $20,000 (at least!) in material solidarity with the Black Power Blueprint - a St. Louis-based program that functions as a blueprint for black-led self-determination and empowerment in cities across the U.S. and world.
THIS is what reparations looks like! Reparations for the Black Power Blueprint.
The Black Power Blueprint is a black-led, anti-colonial, anti-gentrification program. It is led by the African working class, building their own political and economic power over their communities and resources. The Black Power Blueprint is acquiring abandoned, dilapidated buildings, and initiating a rapid process of restoration or demolition to create black community-led, self-reliance programs that uplift the residents and engage them socially, politically and economically in the future of their community.
For white people, the stand of material solidarity with the Black Power Blueprint is a stance of reparations, acknowledging that the social wealth in the white community has come at the expense of colonialism, enslavement and oppression of African people and theft of their resources.
The stand of reparations for the Black Power Blueprint is a stand against police violence, mass incarceration, genocide, colonial poverty and all other forms of injustice and oppression. It is a stand for justice and reparations for African people, the only way that genuine peace for all humanity will be possible.
