When You Learn....Teach
Maya Angelou

I can't believe black folks all over the U.S. got together to see a movie, but won't get together to BOYCOTT the police, NFL and other entities who devalue black lives.

Look at how much power Starbucks lost when we all got together on social media to expose what they did and many of us did go ahead with a boycott of this business. The numbers don't lie.  Now is the time for us to #BOYCOTTUSA, #BoycottThePolice, #BoycottNFL , etc.

Starbucks burned by social-justice appeasement as growth stalls, stock plunges

 The time is now!!!

You can't continue to read this e-newsletter and allow the police to continue to get away killing black folks. Keep reading and send this 
e-newsletter to everyone you know then let's get together and boycott before the Sep. 2018 
NFL season.

2018 National Football League (NFL) 
regular season will begin at 7:20 PM 
on Thursday, Sep. 6, 2018 and ends on Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018. 

Fighting Back 101

Learn Everything You Can About How the Criminal Justice System Works

Jul. 4, 2018

by, Syndicated Columnist

Boycotting is the Only Way Forward

Let's get real -- instead of " Fighting Back 101," the title of this article should have been  "Saving Your Life 101" because when you encounter a Police Officer, your number one goal should be to come out of the situation ALIVE --  (#SurvivingPoliceInteractions) .

Have you ever heard the phase  "11th" hour? It means that we have  one more play to make at police departments if we are ever going to stop them from  killing and  destroying black families in this country.
Because of the work of  Colin Kaepernick and other  NFL football players, who have started a campaign to hold police officers  accountable
(#TakeAKnee) , it is only fitting that we stand beside them to make sure this accountability takes place. 

Because of them we have all the bases loaded, and like in any  softball or baseball game, we need to go ahead and hit a home run.  A home run would indeed be to BOYCOTT the police  (#BoycottKKKops) and the NFL (#BoycottNFL).

The black community has had discussions for years about why don't black movie stars, rappers, basketball and football stars make a stand for the black community. Well they finally have and many of you are still turning your backs. 
Not only have they made a stand but these black men in the NFL (#TakeAKnee) are putting their salaries and livelihoods on the line for black families -- everywhere -- so get aboard the  justice train and  "Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace." 
Just like in slavery days, the  KKK (#StopKKKops)
 with their hoods on came for your family in the morning time and mine at nighttime so no person of color is or will be exempt from the  terror 
and  torture  from police departments in this country.  
You sit back, hide out and don't want to get involved, hoping they will skip over you and your family. You tell your kids not to talk back to the police, not to wear hoodies, and not to drive around with a carload of young black male passengers -- so has it worked? NO. 
Black kids and families are still being targeted, stalked and killed in this country at an alarming rate by  'out of control', KKK Nazi 'gestapo-type' (#KKKops) police departments. 

Many communities are down to the wire with 
and defeat, especially because of Trumponomics and gentrification, which has removed their support systems -- the very people who would have stood with them to take on the police. These individuals are now in other neighborhoods and even other cities because of gentrification.

So unless you are ready and willing to stand up and be heard and start 
rebuilding these communities again, there is not a lot that I can say. 

The good news is that many groups in many communities are  fighting back by providing shooting lessons, self-defense classes, other survival classes and is stockpiling goods and products -- including weapons -- preparing families for what's to come. 

These are the groups with the  Nat Turner syndrome 
that is putting it all on the line. If you are not willing to die today for your loved ones -- then you are not really living. 
And these are the groups we need to support and make sure they have everything they need, because these are the groups that have "come alive again" -- and are not only the  "new leaders of today" -- but also the  "new leaders of tomorrow".
Where is the #BoycottApp?
What I can't understand with all these police killings and technology today and tons of talented, YOUNG black folks  -- were is the  # BoycottApp?  This boycott app is not just needed for the police (#BoycottKKKops) but also to #BoycottNFL,  #BoycottStarBucks , etc. 
so it's imperative that it is created now - hint, hint...

The #BoycottApp for the police should include:
  • A section to report police incidents so we can compile a list of "at risk" officers.
  • A listing of all proactive attorneys in every city to take your case.
  • A listing of proactive media entities ( to report on what happened. 
  • A listing of all the companies affiliated with the police, funding the police or their departments and those using their services. This includes all companies that hire police officers for security and other work. We need to boycott all these companies so there must be a list. 
  • A listing of all civil rights organizations that will work with attorneys to get your stories told (,, Amnesty Intl., etc.)                                  
The Police is Now the KKK

If you still can't get your head wrapped around the fact that the police is  now the Ku Klux Klan (aka KKK) 
 - then you need to wake up!  #WakeUp.   
Many people just don't see the  BIG PICTURE today, so young people, Millennials, who understand business ownership, need to step out there and form nationwide  ONGOING BOYCOTTS, until there are changes made in regards to the criminal justice system in this country and also address other timely and relevant issues affecting African Americans.

Until we
HIT THEM IN THEIR POCKETS -- nothing basically in this country will change. Surely you understand that by now. When the money starts to dry up these corporations will go to the police and higher ups and tell them they will have to change. 

Why do you think the Klan (KKKops) no longer openly wear their white robes. They might still do it in secret or every once in a while, but they are not riding into your area and taking your loved ones and hanging them from a tree in broad daylight in front of you -- like they did in the past. 

Somewhere down the line, many people especially good law enforcement officers, felt it was offensive so they had to take these robes off. Even though they took the robes off and put on police uniforms, and became lawyers, judges, and other higher ups and is now working in many different entities, we have to go after the very core of their existence and challenge all these entities. 

We can change the culture in this country -- especially and as soon as we get Trump out of office. We just have to WAKE UP and get organized now!!! 

Support #ShaunKingProjects

In 2016 I seriously thought about leading up a National Boycott (#BoycottUSA ) of the police.  The reason I backed off and did not follow through with this campaign and national boycott is that I saw the same, exact campaign and movement launched on Dec. 5, 2016 by 
Millennial Shaun King
as the 
"Injustice Boycott"
 -- stating this is what he was doing, so as a Baby 
Boomer, female and Warrior Queen, I felt there was no need to "duplicate the wheel", so I stepped back, joined his campaign and initiatives and followed his lead. And we all need to do this when we see young, brave, brilliant, good, ethical leaders emerging -- especially Millennials and Generation Z's.

Know upfront that n ot everyone can be a leader, but what you need to understand is that "All leaders started out as followers." Being a Millennial growing up in the technology and digital age and being an  investigative reporter out of New York, I figured this young man would have a much more better chance at reaching more people than me.

He did a brilliant job going after statistics in 3 citiesStanding Rock, San Francisco and New York City, before his campaign went into another direction -- so kudos to Shaun King for even attempting this feat in the first place. 

He is now working on -- where he is attempting to elect prosecutors who will fix our broken criminal justice system.

His prior work to launch a national boycott will forever be etched in the minds of those that watched him take lead and the hundreds of contacts he made. So continue to follow him and support him on twitter
and/or his new campaign at (Join the mailing list) and email him at

Calling All Legals Experts


At this time we need Law Students, Paralegals, and Lawyers -- and their networks to become a part of LEGAL DEFENSE TEAMS and become our legal minds behind the scene. 

Police abuse and killings in this country have reached an epidemic proportionIt continue to be very disheartening to see what is happening to families in this country. 

I am not a lawyer and don't have a legal background, but the problem will be that most laws today are set up at a local level, so it will be hard to set up one national precedent or law to hold all police departments accountable. 

But it doesn't mean we should not try -- especially since these police killings are taking place everywhere in the U.S. And this is why we need legal minds from every city working behind the scenes to change national police policies and procedures.

For instance, check out Atlanta's Attorney Mawuli Davis , from Davis and Bozeman Law . This brother started off as the co-chair for the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America (NCOBRA)  (or Reparations) movement in Atlanta, GA. 
He went to law school and I watched him build his law firm from a handful of clients to one of the most reputable and courageous law firms in this country. 

These types of legal experts need to be just a phone call away or on your speed dial when you have an unfair encounter with the police. The goal is to live to tell your story. 

Someone, or the group or network that leads up this national boycott (#BoycottUSA), should have a listing of all these courageous attorneys in EVERY CITY.

Know Your Rights When You Encounter a Police Officer

Three (3) things you need to do ASAP when you encounter a police officer on the streets or in your car:
  1. Keep your mouth closed if you encounter a police officer. Be courteous and respectful because the police has the upper hand. The police is not your friend so limit your conversations with them. If you are detained or arrested DON'T RESIST -- just use the magic words "I'M GOING TO REMAIN SILENT! I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A LAWYER!"
  2. You or a family member should call a lawyer. 
  3. You or a family member should reach out to the Black Press ( and/or a civil rights group to tell your story.
Police Officers don't have the right to search your vehicle without a "warrant" or "probable cause" -- but are you going to tell them that they cannot search your vehicle when you are out there on a dark road alone?  NO... If they violated your rights, the only thing you can do is to fight back later on.  

If they found any type of illegal contraband through an illegal search, you can have it thrown out later on, but you need to KNOW YOUR RIGHTS when stopped by the police -- in your car, on the streets, and in your home. 

Find out what your rights are by reading this book "Police Interactions 101: How To Interact With the Police in Your Car, On the Streets, In Your Home." -- available as an e-book, paperback and audiobook.

Excerpt from book:
Some suggestions to hold police departments accountable are:
  • Hold Congressional and public hearings.
  • Make federal aid to police departments conditional.
  • Create a policy of zero tolerance for abuses and killings.
  • Provide adequate funding and political support for Citizen Review Boards.
  • Establish early warning systems to identify "at risk" officers and departments.
  • Hire special prosecutors in each state to handle criminal prosecutions of police. 
The book has everything you need so you can't say you did not know what to say or what to do when you encounter the police in your car, on the streets or in your home.  And it's only 56 pages so read it -- reread it several times and make sure all your family members, especially young black men starting at the age of 10 -- read the book several times.

Volunteer To Be A 'Foot Soldier'

A 'foot soldier' is a black person dedicated to the upliftment and survival of black people. They don't just do advocacy and activism work, but they also teach, educate, mentor and organize. 

Many are business owners so you need to pay them for their services and products.  Many Baby Boomers were foot soldiers, but because of GMOs (aka "Processed Foods"), which turns the brain off, many are no longer in a position to do the work it takes to save black families. 

Many have already left legacies behind so you need to ask yourself - What's Your Legacy?  We are calling on General X's, Millennials and Generation Z's to come out of the shadows and save your own people

As Baby Boomers, we will be available to act as mentors, advisers, consultants and coaches -- so get with Baby Boomers today and learn how to fight back. 

Just some of the training provided by foot soldiers:
  • Undoing Racism Classes (So You Can Fully Understand Why People Are Poor)
  • Personal Development Workshops (Self-Esteem, Etiquette, Grooming/Personal Hygiene, Financial Literacy, Home Buying, Relationship, etc.)
  • Parenting Workshops (School Monitors and Tutoring Programs, Home Learning Centers (, Neighborhood Bookclubs, Sistahood/Villages, Neighborhood Watch Programs, etc.)
  • Business Workshops for Youth and Adults (Goal Setting, Dream Mapping, etc.)
  • Media and Marketing Workshops
  • Natural and Holistic Health Training (Home, School, and Community Gardening Clubs and Projects, Food Co-ops, Food Coalitions and especially GMO Education)
  • Articles and Non-fiction Book Writing Workshops
  • Workplace and Whistleblower Training
  • Other Basic Survival Skills Including Self Defense and Weapons' Handling Workshops
  • Train the Trainer Workshops
Stop Waiting on Civil Rights Organizations

I have always admired the  and  Amnesty International , which I worked with on my "Flying While Black" issue. They are still going strong today and is especially working with immigrant families and have even sued ICE  for 
separating these families. 

ACLU conducted a lot of work around police brutality, police killings, Driving While Black, Shopping While Black, Flying While Black, Breathing While Black, etc. and most people don't know they are located in just about EVERY CITY and actually hold monthly meetings in these cities, where anyone can join them. You don't have to be an attorney.

Civil Rights Organizations may or may not get involved with this boycotting issue. I strongly suspect they will pass on this one. They are the reasons that many of our black boys and men (and women) have ended up in jail in the first place by not fighting this from the very beginning. 

The thing about black people is they are always in that "waiting mode." They are always waiting around to see what actions someone else takes and many times they need to step up to the plate and take action themselves.

To lead successful ongoing boycotts - you need
certain groups behind you -- or do you today with social media -- maybe not. However, we need to stop waiting on these civil rights organizations. Many are just too old, too run-down, too useless and will sell out the black community in a heartbeat. 

Why do you think so many of our sisters and brothers are in jail in the first place?...Because somewhere down the line these civil rights organization dropped the ball.

I was a 'long-time' member of the when I lived in Atlanta for 20 years in the largest African American county in the U.S. (Dekalb County, Georgia) (I left in 2013). 

I volunteered in the office, worked on the membership committee, and attended monthly and yearly events. So I was a 'die-hard' NAACP PROACTIVE MEMBER

I watched 'first-hand' how they operated. Even though brave local NAACP Presidents felt passionately about taking on some major issues concerning black folks, they were HALTED and BLOCKED by the national offices. 

For instance, we took on "Shopping While Black" with protests every weekend in Dekalb County, GA. However, the national office of the NAACP warned the local President, John Evans, to stop protesting before they remove or fire him -- especially after they received a large donation from the company/corporation (I think it was Dillard's). 

Look at Al Sharpton's group, National Action Network. They take on a few issues but when it comes down to it, every black reporter I know warned me not to go to him with my "Flying While Black" issue ( because they witnessed several instances, when Al Sharpton walked away from incidents concerning black folks like Santa Claus -- carrying a BIG BAG OF MONEY So he was the "HUSH MAN" then and probably still is that white corporations and other entities send in to quiet down the black community. 

I don't know what happened to the Jessie Jackson, Sr., who is the founder, son Jesse Jackson, Jr., who was a U.S. Congressman, and his wife both ended up in jail. 

Jessie Jackson, Sr. got old and was involved in a lot of marital issues and everyone started referring to him as "Messy Jessy."  When you lose your reputation as a black leader, there is really not much left. 

This group was at one time heavily involved in economic empowerment, but in Atlanta many of their members were recruiting others for Network and Multi-Level Marketing (aka "Pyramid Schemes"  -- so I chose not to join them. 

At the end of the day, most of these civil rights organizations are not going to do anything because they all will take the money and run. Most of them don't know anything about business ownership or economic empowerment -- so how are they going to help us save ourselves? 

Therefore, we can't and shouldn't wait around on these organizations -- period! And this is another reason Millennials don't want to deal with Baby Boomers, who are part of these civil rights groups. So do you blame them?

Instead, let's use social media - the same way we did to get President Obama elected TWICE and hold these police officers accountable with successful ongoing boycotts in EVERY CITY in the U.S.A.  (#BoycottUSA).

Social Media Has Leveled the Playing Field

Social media has leveled the playing field for everyone in this country - to have a fighting chance of surviving their police encounters and receiving justice.

It has changed the game on police abuse and police killings in this country. We now know that these killings have been happening forever, but social media has been able to educate everyone on just how bad it really is. 

Even though social media has leveled the playing field, how much will we really be able to change if people no longer want to see these stories? 

Many people on my facebook pages and groups are no longer opening up these stories. They have become desensitized to these stories and the stories are "killing their spirits" so they are losing the will to fight back. 

But for other young and up and coming black leaders -- they need to see these types of stories because these stories are giving them the will to fight back. These stories are always posted on, but also should be posted on Instagram, where all the Millennials are located -- the very people involved in all these police encounters today -- so post these stories on Instagram. 

I have 4 facebook pages and 8 facebook groups and they are listed at bottom of this e-newsletter. I post most of these police stories on police killings at my facebook group at "Fighting Back 101"   and Mobile Learning Clubs

Join and monitor these groups on facebook and join the independent news websites below to find out about police brutality and police killings in this country. 

Agitate for Change

As a former U.S. Customs Service Whistleblower, " The Cathy Harris Story ," I am sure they have me down somewhere as an "agitator" - a person who stirs up others in order to upset the status quo and further a political, social, or other cause.  

The only cause I am furthering is to keep black people and other minorities alive during a police encounter.
What we don't need are black folks getting involved in the boycott movement thinking someone will donate to their Non-Profit, while they continue to beg the government for money or they think they can recruit more Network and Multi-Level Marketers for their down-line. So watch out for these types of individuals, who can distract you from your real goals and dreams.

We all should be  agitators !!! Until local and 
Racial Profiling laws are put on the books in this country and police officers start going to jail for their crimes, African Americans and other families will continue to be abused and die needlessly at the hands of police officers.

The only thing police officers understand is taking their funding away, which is the only way they will stop killing black folks so let's  #BoycottUSA.
Action Plans To Stop Police Killings

My advice to everyone:
  • Someone or a group, team, or network need to create a #BoycottApp and someone need to lead a national boycott against all businesses affiliated with the police.
  • Become your own individual leader and agitate for change. Join all the independent news websites below and get your family members, friends, neighbors and colleagues to do the same. 
  • Keep recording these stories especially on social media on police abuse and killings and send them to the independent media groups listed below.
  • Join the and reach out to publishers and editors in your city and attend yearly conferences.
  • Join the and attend yearly conferences and work with blacks in the media, especially in your city.
  • Form your own news network like I did at and put out good info.
  • Start holding survival classes and workshops in your own city and bring in trainers or use those locally. Stop devaluing your greatest assets in your own cities so use local trainers who gives workshops or who can provide training through
  • Work with your city to come up with a list of attorneys to take on these police abuses or police killings' cases.
  • Help to put a list together of civil rights contacts in your city, who are brave enough to join the boycott fight.
  • Join Cathy Harris Monthly Masterminds, Think Tanks and Classrooms on 2nd Tuesdays of each month, 7:00 p.m. (CST) at or their "Breakout Sessions" at 
  • Volunteer to monitor legislators. If you work on 2nd or 3rd shifts, is retired or is a student, volunteer to monitor legislators in your city to see who is doing what. What type of legislation are they introducing or voting on? And let's vote out BAD LEGISLATORS and elect GOOD legislators.
  • Everything is on so go on and put in the search bar - Police Abuses, Police Killings, Police Whistleblowers, etc. and conduct your own research. The police is not just killing black folks so good white folks need to also participate in a nationwide boycott. 
  • Start a Book Club or Study Group in Your City and Read and Study Cathy Harris' Book
    "Police Interactions 101: How To Interact With the Police In Your Car, On the Streets, In Your Home."  - available as an e-book, paperback and audiobook and others mentioned in this e-newsletter. Just remember that Rome wasn't built overnight, but it was indeed built.

What I Know for Sure About 
Police Officers

How To Interact With the Police in Your Vehicle by Cathy Harris, Author of
How To Interact With the Police in Your Vehicle by Cathy Harris, Author of "Police Interactions 101"

Support Cathy Harris 3 Movements

I am no longer in a position to lead up a movement or a boycott, however, I am available as an  Injustice Adviser, Consultant, and Coach . My first book in my 3 part empowerment book series  "How To Take Control of Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide to Empowering Your Family and the Entire Community" (Series 1)  lays out a  plan of action  for all families and communities. It is available as an e-book and paperback book.

At the age of  61, I am trying to PASS THE TORCH  on to tons of younger black women (and men) that I mentor and turn them into brave leaders and visionaries of tomorrow with my own 3 movements. 

I can't currently lead up a boycott movement  because I have my own 3 movements. My 3 new movements include: 
Use the hashtag 
#OneMillionClassrooms, and

The Reason I Understand the Mentality of Police Officers

The reason I am very familiar with police officers is that during my 27 years with the federal government, U.S. Customs Service (now called Customs and Border Protection), including 3 and a half years working with the Military Police as a soldier, U.S. Army, as an Administrative Specialist, I witnessed 'first hand' the aggression used by former police officers and Military police.

Over 30% of my co-workers, while working for the U.S. Customs Service, were former police officers and another large percentage were veterans, especially former Military Police. 

I used to sit back and watch or observe them, while listening to their stories of past acts of aggression, when they were police officers.  Their daily conversations were all about bragging about their past experiences as police officers and how they illegally pulled their weapons on a daily basis to threaten or intimidate the public.

The reason a lot of police officers gravitated toward federal service law enforcement work with agencies like mine, U.S. Customs Service, is that these federal agencies paid very good salaries and of course the jobs weren't as dangerous as police work.

Many police officers only make $30,000, $40,00 or $50,000 a year (if that) and on my old job, within two years, you could make that just in overtime pay.  And now because of their raises received over the past year or two, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officers, within 2 years, could bring home over $100,000 annually -- easily.

It's the starting pay for Customs (or ICE) Criminal Investigators, Special Agents, and/or Customs Officers. For supervisors and managers, it's $140,000-$200,000 (or more). So these men (and women) are now easily making more than U.S. Congressmen and all they do is come to work drink coffee and sexually harass women (join the  #MeToo campaign today).

Form Criminal Justice Coalitions in Your City

In order to bring the police under control there needs to be  Criminal Justice Coalitions set up in 
every city. And one of the first functions of Criminal Justice Coalitions with their Legal Defense Teams should be to research the qualifications for becoming a cop. Why are these qualifications different in many cities?  

There needs to be a system set up to deliver early warning signs to identify "at-risk" officers. Find out who becomes a cop. Are they just warm bodies put in place? Are they accredited? What is the extent of their training? What's in the training manuals.

Do they have sensitivity, cultural diversity, integrity, Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) (sex and race discrimination, sexism, sexual harassment, etc.) training? Should there be more training? If so, what kind? 

In order to understand police incidents and clearly define the issues, the  Criminal Justice Coalition members and attorneys  need to know:
  • What happened?
  • When did it occur?
  • Why did it occur?
  • Who was involved?
  • How did it happen?
  • Where there any witnesses?
Members of  Criminal Justice Coalitions  must have no sympathy for police. To be effective, they MUST NOT be afraid of the courts, prosecutors, and/or law enforcement. 

When I lived in Atlanta before becoming a business owner, I sat on the  Criminal Justice Committee  with a local progressive advocacy group While sitting on that committee, we had members of the community come in and tell us their stories of mistreatment by local police

The stories were not only horrific but these dangerous acts of aggressions by  the police cannot go unchecked.   Just some of the stories I remember include -- when two, young, black males, who were identical twins -- openly discussed how the police tried to run them down with their vehicles, while they were crossing the streets. 

They said they were actually hit with police cars when walking and even caught under the police cars, but escaped without injuries. They said they were constantly stalked and stopped several times a day by the police, when they were on foot or in their vehicles.

So young black men are being constantly 
STALKED in their communities and neighborhoods by the police. Many are pulled over everyday, several times a day, by the same cops or their buddies down the street.

We knew in Cobb County and Clayton County, GA -- that black men were still being hanged or killed in jail by jailers. And m any are speculating that Sandra Bland was already deceased in her jailhouse photo, so  they probably hanged her in jail shortly after she was arrested. 

The cop who arrested her was cleared of all charges, but had to promise never to be a cop again -- so if he had to promise that -- you know he was guilty of arresting her and even committed perjury. 

We need to  hold jailers accountable  just like any other police officer -- who roam the streets in search of black people and other minorities to kill. 

Correctional officers and jailers are also called:
  • Correctional Officer
  • Correctional Sergeant
  • Corrections Officer (CO)
  • Custody Assistant
  • Deputy Jailer
  • Detention Deputy
  • Detention Officer
  • Jail Officer
  • Jailer
  • Jailor
We were told on many occasions that in many of the counties in Georgia, when black people are arrested -- they are taken into BACK ROOMS and asked for money -- even ranging up into the thousands. 

If they can pay this money, they are released, but if they can't -- many linger in jail, not just for days or months, but years before they ever have their say in court. 

This occurs especially when black people don't have PROACTIVE family members  or come from "single mother households" or don't have others looking out for them. And this is why we need to watch out for each other. 

Never forget what happened to 17 year old Kalief Browder at Rikers Island jail. He spent three years behind bars WITHOUT BEING CONVICTED and took his own life once released.

I fought alongside of the NAACP in Dekalb County, GA, President John Evans, which is one of the largest African American counties in the U.S. to bring justice into the county. 

In 2006, 12 people (11 black men and a white woman) was killed in a one year period by the police so we forced changes. Instead of shooting folks, they started using tasers and they brought in a new African American Police Chief that had been fired from the Dallas Police Department, Terrell Bolton

He eventually also ended up being fired from the Dekalb County police office and even ended up in the hospital almost dead from diabetes because of the pressure that they put him under. 

Later on we found out that people from all over the country were dying from being tasered too long. So even though police officers had to stop using their weapons and switch over to tasers, if they taser you too long or too often -- it too could have fatal results -- so basically the police is an expert on how to kill you -- if you have an encounter with them.

The Police Target Certain Areas

The police go into white areas to SERVE and PROTECT and black areas to CONTROL and PATROL (and kill). The police and their departments or precincts patrols certain areas so they know who lives where and what you do for a living. 

They sit there and run your car tags all day and MONITOR or STALK you -- wait for you to come back from work or wherever -- so they can harass you again. This is all by design and to fill up America's jails, to use you for sex and human trafficking (or organ harvesting) or just to kill you (#KKKops).

They have certain streets that they target so if you drive on these streets, there is a very good chance you will be  "singled out" or  "targeted" by the police. 
Just some of the streets in Atlanta were Memorial Drive, Tara Blvd., Panola Drive, etc. -- streets where a large portion of African Americans travel daily.

I got stopped 3 times one day on Memorial Drive. I finally told the last officer who stopped me, who was a black woman, "Can you tell your friends to at least allow me to get off Memorial Drive." I had all my documents in order, but I was tired of getting stopped.

Everyone has to remember what the cop did to Walter Scott. He was shoot at 8 times (struck a total of 5 times -- 3 times in the back, once in the upper buttocks, and once on one of his ears) even though he was running away from the police so he wasn't threatening to the police -- but still was gunned down like a wild animal. 

Many times people are shot by the p olice because they are   TOO BIG or TOO OVERWEIGHT to run after you. They will shoot you in the back if need be. The police is most 
aggressive   when they first go on shift and they are full of coffee and sugar from donuts. H owever, they will only stop you if they know their buddies, who are also aggressive is also working that day and is right down the street. Their only goals are to go home alive so they won't bother you unless they
know they will be backed up -- in a safe manner.

They are probably less aggressive when it's time for them to get off shift, especially when they have security jobs that they need to show up for. 

Jus t remember most acts of Racial Profiling can be stopped by  first line supervisors , so if you are stopped by the police -- both men and especially ALL WOMEN should call 911 and tell them that they don't feel safe and to send a sergeant to the scene, because these officials can de-escalate a situation -- sometimes -- but not always. 

Police Departments Ticket Writing Policies

Did you know the police is now even ticketing people today for smoking in a car with a minor child inside. They are coming up with all kinds of reasons and ways to make money for police departments. 

On Tuesday nights, in close proximity to the police station on Memorial Drive, the police would already have up to 20 wrecker trucks already lined up to take violators in for not having a driver's license, insurance and those who had  bad attitudes and these types of operations are carried out for years. 

Now I am finding out that WRECKER DRIVERS in many cities...many...if not all of them are the children and other relatives of police officers and government agency workers. This is why these wrecker drivers are "TOW HAPPY" or "TOW CRAZY" because this money is going directly to police officers. 

When federal government workers (Special Agents, Criminal Investigators, etc.) retire, they take over these wrecker businesses and/or continue to run these businesses with family members. And this has been going on since the 90's.

And this is just one way they make money for their police departments--so make sure when you are driving a vehicle that you have all your documents in order ALWAYS (driver's license, insurance card, and car registration); Make sure you don't have damage to your car lights; Put your signals on when you turn; Don't speed; Don't run red lights; and/or don't drive around with loud music. Don't give them a reason to stop you.

When you are out walking, jogging or riding a bicycle and you encounter a police officer -- you don't need to have an ID on you. But if you get hit by a bus, it would be nice for someone to be able to contact your next of kin, so you might want to have an ID on you at all times. And make sure if you have a telephone -- put your EMERGENCY CONTACTS in your phone.

I heard on TV one day -- a high-ranking police official in Cobb County, GA -- ADMIT that they do pull people over in order to make money for police departments and my daughter heard a police officer brag about having a new
'top of the line' police car -- when he stated that's what writing a lot of tickets will get you so eventually groups, especially lawyers and Special prosecutors need to investigate police  "ticket writing policies."

Questions that need to be answered:
  • What groups receives the majority of tickets?
  • What type of tickets are they receiving? i.e. driving without a license, speeding)
  • Who is being taken to jail versus given a warning?
  • Is there a quota on tickets?
  • What is the money being used for?
  • Where are the "high-risk" streets where drivers are given the most tickets?
Employees, including police officers, have a lot of pressure put on them to get results. It's mandatory in some police precincts  and  departments  to  WRITE AT LEAST 3 TICKETS A DAY . And many officers are even being fired for not writing enough tickets for even minor fender benders. 

An Alabama cop was fired as a whistleblower for recording his sergeant stating that they had to write a hundred (100) tickets a month. 

When the police pull over the big trucks, they will reach in and break the brake lines on these trucks then give them a $500 ticket -- according to Alex Jones. That seems a little extreme just to make money for police departments, but I am sure it can happen.

In Dekalb County, GA, where tickets are paid, all you ever have are  ELBOW to ELBOW  - black folks paying tickets given to them by the police.  You mean to tell me that black folks are the ONLY GROUPS receiving tickets from the police -- looks like it. Black police officers are probably afraid to give white folks tickets -- too -- so only black people were receiving tickets.

Are the Police Jealous of Individuals?

Yes, the police is very jealous of black men (and women) because of how they look, dress and what types of vehicles they drive. When I worked for Customs, we had UNWRITTEN RULES/PROFILES to go after everyone with an afrocentric hairstyle. This is how dumb they were so the mindset of police officers aren't any different. 

Just some of the reasons police target blacks:
  • If you wear dreads or some other Afrocentric type hairstyle, there is a 99% chance you will be targeted by the police. They think people with dreads look like criminals so they will target and stalk you in your neighborhood.
  • If you are wearing nice clothes, the police will target you.
  • If you are driving a nice car, they will stalk and target you.
  • They will also target you because of your build. For some reason white police officers are jealous of nice looking black men with nice bodies.
Remember they know who you are. They watch you all the time, so they wait until the time is right to single you out, take you to jail or provoke you into a fight so they can kill you. 

Many police officers are pumped up on steroids (which causes violence and anger) and many of them (along with 85% of employees today)  HATE THEIR JOBS. 

They are only making $30,00 to $40,000...maybe
 $50,000 a year -- if that -- so yes they are jealous of you because of their measly salaries. 

And their salaries are not a lot of money to put your life on the line, so they need to take these security or other jobs or engage in illegal acts -- just to make ends meet, which means spending time away from their families. So naturally they will be jealous of sexy, strong and powerful looking black men.

And as long as the police is  arresting someone or writing tickets, they look impressive to their bosses and will be put up for promotions. This is what happens in all workplaces, but in law enforcement, they need to have a certain group to "single out" or "target" -- to look good to their bosses -- to show their bosses that they are actually working -- which just happens to be BLACK BOYS and BLACK MEN

When I worked for U.S. Customs Service (now called "Customs and Border Protection" or with 30% of my co-workers being former cops) and dealt with the "Flying While Black" issue, they chose BLACK WOMEN to "single out" and "target" so they could look impressive to their bosses.

They had to select a group that would give them the least resistance -- and that was black women. Their rewards for carrying out these illegal practices against black women were at-a-boys, time off, and promotions.

So these workplace systems, especially in law enforcement, needs to be revamped or reevaluated  so let's get with legal minds who can make this happen, but first we need to show them we are serious and boycott ( #BoycottKKKops).

Other Illegalities by the Police 

The police is just not out there killing black men and women, they have all these rackets set up to  GET PAID , especially since many don't make a lot of money working in these dangerous jobs as police officers.

Many will become involved in illegal acts -- such as selling drugs, sex and human trafficking and other illegal acts including participating in CHOP SHOPs ventures. 

CHOP SHOPS  are a  "BIG BUSINESS"  today ,
especially in Atlanta.  Anytime you see a house with 10 to 15 cars in the back of it -- it is a CHOP SHOP
and there were many of these that you could spot just by driving by and looking in the backyard. So the police had to know what was happening.

Also we were told by several black men who drove hero units in Atlanta, which is number 4 in car thefts (seemed like #1), the police worked with the "hero units" to strip cars left on the side of the road. 

The police would contact hero units or garages when they found cars left on the side of the road. This was a major profit item for them They gave car owners a short time to come back and retrieve vehicles left on the side of roads after a break down (maybe an hour), or the cars would get stripped right there or taken to a CHOP SHOP. 

There is a number on the back of your licenses for WRECKER COMPANIES that work with the police or Department of Public Safety (DPS). So if your car break down and if you don't have insurance, you need to call this number to have your car removed on the side of the road.

Even if you have Triple AAA and if they don't get there fast enough to tow your car off the side of the road, their family members with these wrecker companies will be right down the street ready to tow the car so drivers are given a short time to have a wrecker truck show up at the scene. 

Even though it is dangerous to leave a vehicle on the side of the road, the racket is for the police to make money by having their family members, who own these wrecker companies show up at these scenes to make this money.

Triple AAA will tow your car to a garage and give you a ride there also. These WRECKER COMPANIES (with family members of the police) will tow your car to a garage and drop you off somewhere safe down the street but not at your home. But your car might end up quite a distance away from you -- maybe even in a garage on the other side of town. 

Many people who don't have rides to retrieve their vehicles, forfeits these cars or just gives them up. And what happens to these cars in police garages. Supposedly, they are sold at auctions or maybe even stripped for parts.  The longer they have your car at these garages, the higher the fees will be to get your car back. 

The police also works with garages where these stolen cars were towed and shared the profits with these garage owners. For instance, when my daughter 10 year old honda was stolen (Honda is the number one car in Atlanta stolen), e ven after we reported it to the police, it had been found and taken to a garage the next day. However, the police did not tell us for 5 days, which meant by then fees at the garage were stacking up. 

By the time we went to the garage, the owner wanted $300 from us to retrieve the vehicle. However, he never told us the vehicle wasn't drivable. So we paid the money.  He then told us the car wasn't drivable and towed the car in front of his establishment/garage and told us we had 24 hours to move it.

By then the only choice we had was to call a mobile mechanic that we knew and we ended up selling the car to him for a measly $500.  Then he came and stripped the car for parts. 

So this was and is another racket that the police had with hero units, garages, wrecker companies in Atlanta and I am sure they do this in EVERY CITY. Everyone makes money -- but you. You will usually end up out of a car and out of money

And I would not even be surprised if the police did not have their own robbing crew  (or a "CAR THEFT CREW" or "CAR THEFT RING") stealing the cars in the first place. If they can shoot and kill innocent black people and other minorities in plain daylight for nothing and get away with it, whats' to stop them from engaging in these illegal type of enterprises

All of you watch TV and you see it happen everyday on remember it can also happen in real life.  In Atlanta, they tried to steal my car twice. Someone pulled my ignition twice trying to steal my car, but the car had some device that kept it from being stolen. However, because of the damage, I had to pay my car insurance company --  $500 TWICE , within a 6 month period. 

And when my insurance company sent a mechanic out to fix my car -- the second time...he told me my car was a hot car to be easily chopped in Atlanta...(Dodge Stratus) and that it was a very good chance that they would get me again -- because he had at least 5 other female clients with the same exact car -- that had the same thing happen to them -- several times (or over and over again). 

That was heartbreaking and sickening to hear so I then had to put locks on my brakes and steering wheel --  when I got out of the car every night. Eventually, I got sick of having to unlock all the locks everyday and knew there just had to be another way to live. 

So this was another reason I had to move out of my last city. It was just frustrating. And I knew over 20 other black women, mostly single women, who was just trying to make it from day to day...but also had their cars stolen or damaged from "attempted car thefts" several times -- just like me. This has to be a racket and another way for unethical police officers and their families to make money.

Women, especially should pay attention and join a nationwide boycott against the police. Single mothers, especially need their cars for work and to take care of their children -- to take them to school, doctor's visits and other activities. 

Just what if they, single mothers, were purposely being "singled out" or "targeted" by these robbing crews in their cities? Remember the police sit there and watch you everyday so they know who you are, where you live, where you work and what you do.

It could very well been some type of racket orchestrated by the police or their family members or friends with garages, wrecker companies and hero units. 

It's definitely something to think about -- and/or investigate so bring up this issue up with Lawyers, Legislators, Special Investigators and Special Prosecutors, who can launch investigations.

Why Police Officers Don't Become Whistleblowers

"Whistleblowers" are individuals or employees who exposes mismanagement, abuses of authority, prohibited personnel practices and other acts of corruption, which affects the health safety and welfare of an entire nation. 

As a former U.S. Customs Service whistleblower myself,, i n 1998, 20 years ago, I exposed that my job and fellow co-workers were "singling out" and "targeting" black women international travelers for abusive, demeaning and humiliating pat-downs, strip searches and prolonged detentions that lasted for up to 4 days -- even when they were up to 8 months pregnant -- just to make more overtime money. 

I went to the local media, Fox 5 Atlanta, Reporter Dale Russell, who later won the "Peabody Award" for my story; the Black Press ( - Ms. Dorothy Leavell, Publisher Chicago Crusader), who assigned Award Winning Journalist and Professor Linn Washington from Temple University to write articles that were distributed every two weeks to 200 black newspapers nationwide; and Congress and the Senate, who held investigations and hearings. 

Only 1% of whistleblowers are ever successful. I know 'first-hand' what it takes to become a "Whistleblower" and be successful so read my books " The Cathy Harris Story: A Whistleblower's Victorious Journey to Justice" and "The Failure of Homeland In-Security: The Government's Dirty Little Secrets from an Insider." 

The reason there has been sufficient changes taking place in many entities today is because of "Whistleblowers."  For instance, the reason that had to make all the changes were because of Whistleblowers

Brave men and women whistleblowers came forth and told the truth. No matter how you look at it whistleblowers are "true  public servants". They are indeed "THE GOOD GUYS." Check out this timeline of U.S. Whistleblowers. Yes I am on the list.

When we -- along with our Legal Defense Teams, Criminal Justice Coalitions, and Civilian Review Boards, attempt to make changes in police departments, it's important to consult with former police officers and especially "Police Whistleblowers". These individuals know where all the skeletons are hidden and will probably be interested in telling you. 

According to some police departments it's  hard to hire black police officers.  Many police officers sit by and become a part of this blue wall of silence, but others do come forward when they witness any type of illegality. 

So these are the people we need to work with to change the culture of police departments. Most are on so go there and put in the words "Police Whistleblowers." 

Many police employees do become whistleblowers, but because of the retaliation they receive, you never hear from them. Just remember n ot everyone is strong enough to become a whistleblower and just like
"discrimination complainants", they will be targeted for workplace abuse, physical threats and termination by their departments. So when they stay quiet, they are protecting their own families and livelihoods.

We really need a WHISTLEBLOWER 
MOVEMENT if we are ever going to get this country back on track. Because many whistleblowers will be BLACK-BALLED from getting another job, especially in their industries, we need to take care of them and their families by setting up and crowd funding accounts.

Many whistleblowers have to reinvent themselves
so many become speakers, educators and write books on their stories and teach others in seminars and workshops -- so support and get to know these individuals -- and tell everyone you love to do the same -- because again, THESE ARE INDEED THE GOOD GUYS! 

Why I Am 'Passing The Torch' to Millennials

No city in the U.S.A. is ideal for black folks right now -- no matter where you live. Gentrification tore black families apart and their support systems. It killed their spirit!  So you need to find a way to uplift and motivate future generations to come. Be humble, be grateful and always use integrity in everything you do. 

I left Atlanta after 20 years in 2013. I have at least 20 reasons for leaving and one was not really wanting to continue to watch the police go after innocent young, black people

Since being in my current city and area, Austin, TX, in the past 3 years I have only seen police cars less than 10 times, so the atmosphere is much different here so it's much better for my psyche (mental well-being). 

You see them everyday go after certain groups -- after black people -- the people you love -- the people you want to see better themselves so they can live their best lives.  You know it can happen to your family. You hear the stories over and over again and this can do something to your pysche.

As a Baby Boomer, I fought alongside of civil rights groups with print journalism, community radio, and Public TV and we won on many fronts. It's up to the younger generation today -- TO YOU -- to pick up the torch - become "foot soldiers" and "freedom fighters" -- and come out of the shadows and fight for your ownself and your families. We wrote the playbook on fighting back so we are passing our knowledge, our courage and our strength on to you. 

If you grew up in the social media/digital age, then use that to fight back. We never had these, so therefore, we had to become "foot soldiers" fighting in the trenches doing all this hard work like our ancestors.

You have online news, podcasts/internet radio and social media platforms that can reach large audiences - far and wide. This is not "Rocket Science" -- use whatever tools you have and keep "agitating for change."

for NFL Boycott

Kaepernick Calls for NFL Boycott

Comments from

Unlawful Jim Crow laws and Slave Codes in full effect. Mr. Trump, the original Americans are being killed and assaulted and traumatized by police officers and racist Europeans/So-called white people, and you are talking about people taking a knee because of these hateful brutal crimes, instead of the evil murdering terrorist that keep violating the rights of the original people. Where are the so-called Christians? 


Damn clown ass. The U.S. Supreme Court has decided not one is obligated to stand up for the 'Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States'. And because the National Anthem was written by a slave owner, we shouldn't stand to honor it either. 

Breaking: Several star @NFL players have told me  they are considering sitting out the season until the de facto ban of Eric Reid and Colin Kaepernick is removed and both men are given spots back on rosters. 
They aim to get 25% of the players to sit out with them. 2


Action Plans To Move Forward With an Economic Boycott Against the Police and NFL  

Keep in mind that this  economic Boycott  against the police and NFL is not just about holding the police, NFL and other corporations accountable, but it's also about building a  STRONG ECONOMIC BASE
for black families. 

Like Dr. Claud Anderson, author of   "Powernomics" 
said as long as we continue to be  "consumers" 
instead of  "producers,"  we will continue to be killed by the police.

Over 75% of the NFL is BLACK. Black people dominate the music and athletic industry and we don't own or control anything. We need to continue the fight that Colin Kaepernick started and go ahead with a BOYCOTT of the NFL (#BoycottNFL) and the police 
(#BoycottKKKops) and/or  (#BoycottUSA).

So where are all these black financial and  business
leaders, civil rights leaders and others who should be launching  LEGITIMATE, national, ongoing boycotts
because of police brutality and killings? They don't exist so we must do this ourselves.

With the apparent  Boycott of the NFL  looming or just around the corner  (#BoycottNFL)  and the action plan laid out by Colin Kaepernick (#TakeAKnee), we are in a prime position to move forward and hold police departments accountable.   
Despite the fact that these football player's salaries are paid from funds earned at these games -- or are they? It's all or nothing! All of these players can become motivational speakers and authors and we will buy their books so they will still make money -- if they are kicked out of the NFL. So we need to see more than Colin Kaepernick MAKING A STANCE.

We can't stop while we are still  ahead and we are ahead. No one has ever been able to make a stand like this before so it would be silly to stop now.  We no longer have the luxury of sitting back and sparing any industry that devalue the lives of black folks

The way I see it -- the only way to back up  Colin Kaepernick and other black men in the NFL , is to go ahead with a  FULL BLOWN OUT BOYCOTT  of this industry, especially before the NFL season begins on Sep. 6, 2018.
There is no turning back now with so much to lose -
more black lives and the careers of these brave NFL players  on the line. Not only should Colin Kaepernick lead up an NFL boycott , but also a  national boycott against the police,  which he basically already doing -- so we need to support him and especially sign the petition (click here)

Just like a Criminal Justice Coalition to challenge police departments, we also need to put together a Boycott Coalition made up of black people who sincerely have a GREAT LOVE for the black community to challenge police departments, NFL and other corporations, which will be added to the BOYCOTT LIST.  

Boycott Coalition Website and Membership Forms:
First of all we need a  dedicated website for the Boycott such  as    or  or a breakdown such as  or 

The website or websites need to be up as soon as possible so people can join online ASAP. The next step is putting a membership form and a mailing list on website so members can receive  regular e-newsletters with action plans for ongoing boycotts.

Some possible committees could include:
Research Committee:
This committee will work closely with the  Economic Development and  Education Committee to make sure everything is on track.  They will answer questions about the boycott and work 'hand-in-hand' with black communities so that everyone know about action plans and which companies to boycott. 

The Research Committee or  Economic Development Committee need to conduct research to see what's being done in other cities.  They also need to develop a BOYCOTT APP.

Economic Development Committee:
The  Economic Development Committee will be over funding/finance and should maintain the website and especially collect membership fees, which should be around $25.00. 

However, there needs to be several people with access to the funding and website and these should be "ethical" black banks such as Capitol City out of Atlanta, who has a solid history of assisting the black community. 

T he Economic Development Committee should 
work behind the scenes setting up the coalition financially and legally.  The business plan will show the strengths and weaknesses of the boycott. 

Remember, even though a boycott is about holding the police and/or NFL accountable, we still need to make sure black communities have the  'basic essentials of life' , which are  food, clothing and shelter -- especially since they will give up certain merchandise as we boycott different businesses.

Education Committee:
Training should be provided by the  Education and
Outreach Committees and can be given in the field, in classrooms and workshops, virtually by phone ( and video (, and especially through virtual webinars.
On you can have 100 people on the telephone at one time; You can have 50 people on the phone or video screen at one time on (cost $16.99 a month) or webinars ($55 a month).  
The Education Committee  also need to compile a list of e-books, paperback, and audiobooks on (every book in America is on or in bookstores, including videos, documentaries or other material that can be referred to members so that they can be educated on boycotts, farming, gardening, etc. and other important topics.
Outreach Committee:  
The members of this committee should have their pictures on websites and commit to wearing T-shirts, especially when they knock on doors every week in their cities to inform families how they can get involved with the boycott. It's also important that they wear some type of badge to make sure others don't use the mission for
'unethical' acts.
They will also set up and  teach black families how to grow foods in fields, in front and backyard gardens, raised bed gardens, on porches, patios, balconies, rooftops, in kitchens and other rooms in pots and containers with grow lights, etc. 

They will conduct outreach in schools, churches, and other locations and  provide GMO training (GMO movie screenings, discussions, seminars, workshops, teleseminars, webinars, etc.) to families in their homes, libraries located in black communities, black bookstores and community centers, senior citizen centers, and other locations. 

This committee should also lobby legislators every week and gather 2nd and 3rd shift workers, students and retirees for this committee, who can spend a certain amount of their time at the Capitol, especially during legislative sessions -- monitoring legislators.
Media Committee:
This is one of the most important committees because whatever marketing they do will bring in new boycott members, where you can collect membership fees ($25). So it's important to have backups on this committee.
This committee will commit to filming all presentations at meetings or training sessions, inside and outside of classrooms.
This committee will take pictures and videos, which will need to be placed on websites,,, in e-newsletters, and on social media. You can film any event with a smart phone or purchase a camcorder.
Reach out to retired educators, into schools and colleges, especially film and journalism students, bloggers, freelancers, syndicated columnists, graphic designers, website developers, etc., to work on this committee.
This committee will also present press/media kits with press releases and freelance articles to local newspapers and work 'hand-in-hand' with local reporters especially the and
They should be in charge of setting up radio interviews and interviewing progressive legislators -- amongst other things. They can also be in charge of posting information on social media (,,, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+,, Snapchat, and Periscope).

Phone calls, emails or texts must be returned within 24 hours from Committee Chairs, especially the Media Committee, because news stories have deadlines -- so there must not be any delay.


Listing of National Companies We Should Boycott

Just remember during this ongoing boycott , this is a great opportunity to:
  • Take our money out of all BIG BANKS and put it in black banks. If we pool our money, they will give us loans for new businesses so we need all business coaches, business consultants, business tutors and business mentors to work with clients -- young and old.
  • Stop going into Asian nail and toe shops. Black women and young girls can start these types of businesses.
  • Stop going into Asian beauty supply. Black beauty and Barber shops ( can start selling this hair and other supplies right out of their own shops. They also need to open their own Beauty Supply stores.
  • Let's get all Asian restaurants and other businesses out of our communities.
You can start boycotting these companies on your own.  L et's look at EACH STATE  and add the largest
Fortune 500 or Corporations (Top 10)  with the highest  NET WORTH  to the boycott list. 

Let's go on and to look for these which are the two largest search websites on the internet. And don't forget that owns

Then let's look at companies and cases where black people have been treated horribly by companies or companies which are affiliated with the police (Companies that supply the police with guns, shooting ranges, uniforms, automobiles, training, etc.).

Who We Are Boycotting:
  • Boycott all companies affiliated with the police. Most Fortune 500 companies support the police and they hire them as security guards and in other positions.
  • Boycott all companies that sponsors the NFL.
  • Boycott all companies affiliated with Monsanto (new name is "Bayer"). If we don't gain access to good foods -- all of this will be "worthless." 
Companies to Boycott For Sure:
  • All U.S. Police Departments and any companies affiliated with them (These companies will be listed on upcoming Boycott App and website).
  • The NFL and all the companies that sponsors the NFL should be boycotted (These companies are listed below). Leave the TV off and don't go to the games and stop buying products from the sponsors (The list is below).
  • Starbucks: Has Starbucks really learned a lesson? put them on the list, even though there is now a black female leading the company. We, black people had the perfect opportunity to launch a national boycott with the Starbucks incident. They should never have taken the apology.
  • Walmart: Wal-mart should certainly be on the list. It has put up to 90% of mom and pop businesses out of business so we can boycott them and bring back black mom and pop businesses. Women Wal-mart employees had the LARGEST CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT EVER IN HISTORY but it was dropped. They said women don't deserve to hold management positions so with their reputation and their affiliation with the police, they need to be on the boycott list.
  • Coca-Cola: Their products include Fanta, Diet Coke, Coca-Cola zero, Coca-Cola Life, Dasani, and Minute Maid (Boycott all of them). This company is headquartered out of Atlanta, where tons of black folks are killed by the police every single day. The first action the new black female mayor took when she was elected a few months ago was to hire more police officers so this company deserves to be on the list. Coca-Cola  had the largest discrimination case ever.
  • Delta: This company has many big problems and treat their employees horribly. If Customs said fire a female employee because she WAS NOT receptive to advances by Customs's men, Delta would fire them.
  • Home Depot: They are also out of Atlanta and need to be boycotted. They were sued for disability discrimination.
  • Waffle House: There has been tons of documented cases at this company, where black folks have been treated horribly or locked out of the restaurant despite it being a 24-hour establishment so they need to be on the list.
  • American Airlines: They have a major reputation for treating black folks horribly. They had 29 racial discrimination complaints in 20 months and the NAACP called for boycott of the airline in 2017.
  • Safeway: This company has a history of discrimination against their employees.
  • Campbell Soup Company: They are on both the NFL and Monsanto boycott list so we need to boycott them. Campbell's just offered retirement packages to anyone over 55 who had been with the company at least five years. How is this NOT discrimination? For years they have only hired young, white and thin people who have zero work ethic. Anonymous
  • Pepsi: They discriminates and had to pay $3.13 million for not hiring African Americans and don't forget the racist ad when a Pepsi commercial fail that was promptly skewered on social media for centering Kendall Jenner in a problematic visual that co-opted social justice movements like Black Lives Matter
  • Dr. Pepper: They had to pay $17.7 million in age discrimination case.
  • Tyson Foods: The lawsuit involved 5,716 people who, between 2007 and 2010, applied and were rejected for jobs at six Tyson facilities located in Texas, Arkansas, and New Mexico. Four companies owns all the meat in the U.S. and Tyson is one of them. They had a recall on their chicken and they lie about their chicken being natural.
  • Anheuser-Busch: They had a racial discrimination boycott in 1982 so let's hit them up again.
  • Heineken: They have racism in advertising -- stating sometimes lighter is better.
  • H&M: They had an ad with a racist children's hoodie.
  • Ihop: This company forced black customers to pay upfront.
  • Applebee's: Applebee's has fired three employees at a Missouri mall-based restaurant that it determined were involved in the racial profiling of two African-American customers, whom they falsely accused of skipping out without paying their bill.
  • Old Navy: During a press conference held at his attorney's office in Des Moines, James Conley III describes what the encounter felt like as store employees accused him of trying to steal a jacket he wore into the store.

Gearing Up to Boycott 

Before launching any on-going continuous boycott, we first need to conduct research and especially look at what happened in the past and study it. This means we need to read any books and watch documentaries that were released on past Boycotts.

Every book in America should be on so first look for books there. Then look for documentaries on, Amazon Prime, and You can try to information and check on, which are the two largest search websites on the internet. Then check with local libraries to see if they have old magazines or other research material there.

The below books were found on so everyone need to read all of these books so we all can be on the same page:

Examining the growth of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) following the birth of the civil rights movement, this book is filled with tales of the heroic efforts to halt their rise to power. 

Shortly after the success of the Montgomery bus boycott, the KKK-determined to keep segregation as the way of life in Alabama-staged a resurgence, and the strong-armed leadership of Governor George C. Wallace, who defied the new civil rights laws, empowered the Klan's most violent members. 

Although Wallace's power grew, not everyone accepted his unjust policies, and blacks such as Martin Luther King Jr., J. L. Chestnut, and Bernard LaFayette began fighting back in the courthouses and schoolhouses, as did young southern lawyers such as Charles "Chuck" Morgan, who became the ACLU's southern director; Morris Dees, who co-founded the Southern Poverty Law Center; and Bill Baxley, Alabama attorney general, who successfully prosecuted the bomber of Birmingham's 16th Street Baptist Church and legally halted some of Governor Wallace's agencies designed to slow down integration. 

Dozens of exciting, extremely well-told stories demonstrate how blacks defied violence and whites defied public ostracism and indifference in the face of kidnappings, bombings, and murders.

On September 15, 1963, a Klan-planted bomb went off in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. Fourteen-year-old Carolyn Maull was just a few feet away when the bomb exploded, killing four of her friends in the girl's restroom she had just exited. It was one of the seminal moments in the Civil Rights movement, a sad day in American history . . . and the turning point in a young girl's life.

While the World Watched is a poignant and gripping eyewitness account of life in the Jim Crow South: from the bombings, riots, and assassinations to the historic marches and triumphs that characterized the Civil Rights movement.

A uniquely moving exploration of how racial relations have evolved over the past 5 decades, While the World Watched is an incredible testament to how far we've come and how far we have yet to go.

A "valuable, eye-opening work" (The Boston Globe) about the civil rights struggles of the 1950s and 1960s.

On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Mrs. Rosa Parks, weary after a long day at work, refused to give up her bus seat to a white man...and ignited the explosion that was the civil rights movement in America. In this powerful saga, Morris tells the complete story behind the ten years that transformed America, tracing the essential role of the black community organizations that was the real power behind the civil rights movement. Drawing on interviews with more than fifty key leaders, original documents, and other moving firsthand material, he brings to life the people behind the scenes who led the fight to end segregation, providing a critical new understanding of the dynamics of social change. 

"An important addition to our knowledge of the strategies of social change for all oppressed peoples." -Reverend Jesse Jackson

Paperback- February 28, 2009
On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus and give up her seat to a white man. This refusal to give up her dignity sparked the Montgomery bus boycott, a yearlong struggle, and a major victory in the civil rights movement. Source notes, map, bibliography, index.

This story begins with shoes.  This story is all for true.  This story walks. And walks. And walks.  To the blues.
Rosa Parks took a stand by keeping her seat on the bus. When she was arrested for it, her supporters protested by refusing to ride. Soon a community of thousands was coming together to help one another get where they needed to go. Some started taxis, some rode bikes, but they all walked and walked.

With dogged feet. With dog-tired feet. With boycott feet. With boycott blues.  And, after 382 days of walking, they walked Jim Crow right out of town. . . 

Andrea Davis Pinkney and Brian Pinkney present a poignant, blues-infused tribute to the men and women of the Montgomery bus boycott, who refused to give up until they got justice.

I think we also need to throw in these books so people can understand fully how the criminal justice system works. 
The last days of colonialism taught America's revolutionaries that soldiers in the streets bring conflict and tyranny. As a result, our country has generally worked to keep the military out of law enforcement. But according to investigative reporter Radley Balko, over the last several decades, America's cops have increasingly come to resemble ground troops. The consequences have been dire: the home is no longer a place of sanctuary, the Fourth Amendment has been gutted, and police today have been conditioned to see the citizens they serve as an other-an enemy.

Today's armored-up policemen are a far cry from the constables of early America. The unrest of the 1960s brought about the invention of the SWAT unit-which in turn led to the debut of military tactics in the ranks of police officers. Nixon's War on Drugs, Reagan's War on Poverty, Clinton's COPS program, the post-9/11 security state under Bush and Obama: by degrees, each of these innovations expanded and empowered police forces, always at the expense of civil liberties. And these are just four among a slew of reckless programs.

In Rise of the Warrior Cop, Balko shows how politicians' ill-considered policies and relentless declarations of war against vague enemies like crime, drugs, and terror have blurred the distinction between cop and soldier. His fascinating, frightening narrative shows how over a generation, a creeping battlefield mentality has isolated and alienated American police officers and put them on a collision course with the values of a free society.

"As the United States celebrates the nation's "triumph over race" with the election of Barack Obama, the majority of young black men in major American cities are locked behind bars or have been labeled felons for life. 

Although Jim Crow laws have been wiped off the books, an astounding percentage of the African American community remains trapped in a subordinate status - much like their grandparents before them." In this incisive critique, former litigator-turned-legal-scholar Michelle Alexander provocatively argues that we have not ended racial caste in America: we have simply redesigned it.

Alexander shows that by targeting black men and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control, even as it formally adheres to the principle of color blindness. The New Jim Crow challenges the civil rights community - and all of us - to place mass incarceration at the forefront of a new movement for racial justice in America. The website is

Do you know what to do when stopped and questioned by the police - in your car, on the streets or in your home? If you answered "NO" to this question, you need to read this book! Not only should you read this book but you should tell everyone you love and care about to read it also.
Do you trust the police? The goal is to arm yourself with the knowledge and power you need so you don't become just another victim.
Not only should young males be watchful of actions by the police but what about sexual profiling in this country? Women who often drive alone are at just a higher risk of being accosted by the police as others.
Women are just as likely to be profiled as men by local, state and federal law enforcement officers, especially since the creation of the Department of Homeland Security ( in 2003.
Many women will no longer stop when directed by a police officer to pull over. Some will call 911 and ask for additional police to come to the scene and refuse to open their windows until backup police arrive.
Cops are known to rape or extort women for sex during highway pullovers. The situation is badly deteriorating. It comes as no surprise that unstable, aggressive bullies gravitate to police work, and quite a few are sexual predators.
Therefore, this book is an action plan for the entire family on what actions to take to protect themselves when driving a car, walking on the streets or in their homes.
As a business owner, community organizer and advocate, I have heard many, many stories about what the police is capable of and what they get away with. The reason for this is that most people do not understand their rights!
Advocates and activists don't trust local police agencies to self-investigate or police themselves. Nor do they trust district attorneys, grand juries, police commissions or local officials to be any more fair and impartial when investigating the police.
Many advocates don't understand that the Justice Department has always had on their books a strong arsenal of civil rights statutes to prosecute abusive police officers.
This office is equipped to dispatch their top civil rights lawyers to handle federal probes. But this will happen only if we demand it!
In the past it has taken major media attention, large scale protests and even a major riot, such as Rodney King LA riot of 1992, before the Justice Department has used its legal weapons.
Where there is evidence of sexual or racial profiling and/or police brutality, the Attorney General must send a strong message to law enforcement agencies that the Justice Department will go after lawbreakers, whether they wear a "mask" or a "badge."
Not only will this book help you stay alive when you encounter a police officer, but if you are violated by the police, it provides an action plan on what steps to take to receive justice. Good luck!

I wrote this book to inspire and encourage other trailblazers facing crossroads in their lives to listen to their hearts - do what's right - stand up for justice.  Not only will other lives be enriched, so too, will your own.

My fight with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) was long, hard and fierce.  But I was sent angels.  I was sent angels in the form of Whistleblower and EEO attorneys, legislators, media entities, civil rights leaders, community activists and advocates.
I remembered what my parents had instilled in me about being respectful and doing the right thing and telling the truth.  Knowing my life would change forever and realizing my decision would affect my family, impact my livelihood and derail my career, I was ready to risk it all to make a difference.
I could no longer sit idly by watching the atrocities and injustices being committed against the American public.  I knew it was time to "make a stand!"  In October 1998, I made a "life-altering" decision.  I became a Federal Whistleblower (Truth-Teller).
PICTURE THIS:  You've worked hard and decide to reward yourself with a trip to a sunny destination beyond America's shores.  At the end of your wonderful vacation, you board the plane for your return trip home.  You arrive at the airport but instead of making your way quickly and routinely through U.S Customs and Border Protection, you find yourself being subjected to an abusive pat-down, intrusive strip-search, x-rayed, probed internally, fed a laxative and handcuffed to a hospital bed for up to 4 days.  If you are an African American, especially an African American female, this scenario, it turns out, was all too likely.
After witnessing first-hand this type of denigration against African American travelers particularly women and successfully putting reforms in place to protect them, I realized there was something even more sinister about to happen to the American people.
In March 2003, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) merged 22 federal agencies together totalling over 180,000 employees including my agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection.  Over 73,400 of these employees were armed making this new department the MOST MASSIVE ARMED department ever in the history of the government.
Under the new department, they operated with excessive secrecy. Excessive secrecy could be just as dangerous as a terrorist coming into the country, so I set out to continue to inform the public about the new practices in the new department.
I realized that unless there were some type of oversight put into place - such as Citizen Review Boards - that United States Customs and Border Protection Officers would eventually go back to their old ways of singling out certain individuals such as African American international travelers and certain Department of Homeland Security employees who were speaking out against any and all types of injustices.
Because of the new department, I set out on another journey to educate the American people.  This book will make you aware of the extent of racial and sexual profiling - the blatant mismanagement, abuses of authority, prohibited personnel practices, corruption, and other unethical practices carried out by federal law enforcement officials and what is being done to combat it and how current attempts at reforms and legislation don't go far enough.
I will continue to fight for the rights of international travelers passing through U.S. Customs under the Department of Homeland Security and other federal employees.  This is a fight none of us can afford to lose.

In 2006, when the Dekalb County, GA NAACP demanded justice and that changes be made to the local police department after 12 people (11 black men and 1 white woman) were killed by the police - within a 12 month (1 year) period, the federal government was brought in to view  local police practices in the county including the Drug Enforcement Agency ( 

What you need to understand is that when the local and state police fail at policing their cities and areas, or have too many cases of police brutality, police killings and complaints from citizens, the federal government will be bought in to make sure changes are made. 

Today, the Department of Homeland Security ( is in charge of 22 federal agencies that merged under the merger of 2003, and has done nothing but weaken the security in this country

I was there for 2 years from 2003-2005 working for DHS -- so I witnessed 'first-hand' how this new agency, DHS, opened the door even more for local police departments to kill black people. So the only people that is going to save black people is OTHER BLACK PEOPLE -- and that starts with holding successful ongoing national boycotts.

so we can continue these types of discussions and come up with action plans. Also join us for "Breakout Sessions" by phone or video after the Masterminds.

For those of you who have not chosen to bury your head in the sand -- KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!  Life Happens!!!

Gun Buy Back Programs
Don't Give Up Your Weapons
What's wrong with this picture? Are black men actually giving up their weapons in these gun buy back programs? 
Look at the line of folks...
mostly black men. They will only receive $100 to $200 and then what...they will be broke again. 

Brothers instead of giving up your weapons -- keep it to protect your family and learn how to grow your own foods and make money at: 
and with our new intiative

Hundreds of black women are waiting for 
you to come into their backyards and build 
raised bed gardens or give classes or workshops on what to grow and when to grow foods in pots and containers on porches, balconies, patios, rooftops, in kitchens and other rooms with grow lights.

Blacks Are Being Hanged Again

This is #KendraReid, a 20 year old black woman that was found LYNCHED, hanging from a tree. A black man was found lynched in Feb. 2018 in Mississippi;  April 27, 2018 in Georgia, and another black woman was found lynched on May 14, 2018 in Georgia. 

Black kids are also being hanged from trees.

Before You Call The Cop


The "New Norm" in This Country

Think you won't end up facing down the barrel of a police weapon? Think again! We need to step up any actions against the police because of the  "new norm"  now in this country. The  "new norm"  is to call the police on a black person. And this is WHITE PEOPLE NEW TOOL TO GO AFTER BLACK FOLKS.

Over the last few months  white folks have called the police on black folks for these various reasons and some of these incidents did lead to death so understand up front - no one is exempt and everyone will eventually be targeted by the police:
  • A black man (Stephon Clark) talking on the phone in his OWN BACKYARD was shot 7 times and killed by the police.
  • A black man who was pushing a baby stroller down the street, trying to be a responsible dad -- had the police called on him.
  • A black female yale university student sleeping in the common area in her dorm had the police called on her by a white female.
  • In the same dorm area a yale university student, a black male, also had the police called on him.
  • A black family that was barbecuing in a park, trying to enjoy themselves -- had the police called on them.
  • A black man moving into an apartment, who had worked for President Obama, had the police called on him.
  • A sister trying to get inside her own home -- had 19 cops show up.
  • A lawyer and her daughter shopping in a store (Shopping While Black) had the police called on them.
  • A brother driving his own car had the police called on him, thinking the car was stolen. Despite the fact that he did not fight back, they did not run his tag until after he was beaten up. 
  • A black real estate investor checking out a home, had the police called on him. 
  • A racist Texas white neighbor has called the police on a black family over 20 times.
  • Permit Patty, a white female, called the police on a black child for selling water without a permit.
  • A black female had the cops called on her by a white lady for smoking in a garage.

  The below two news groups have yearly conferences so try to attend these conferences in June and August of this year and urge their leaders to help launch successful ongoing boycotts against the Police and NFL.

How The Media Work

Why You Need To Work with The Black Press (

The black press is also called  "National Newspapers Publishers Association (" , which is a group of black news investigative reporters and journalists located in EVERY CITY - who will tell your story in a good light. 

Currently Dorothy Leavell, the publisher of the  Chicago Crusader is heading up this news group as the Executive DirectorThis is the same sister that was proactive when I initially blew the whistle on my job ( ) so this group has a dynamite sister in charge. Therefore, now is the time to get things done and launch this national boycott ( #BoycottUSA)

Go to the link at and find out where the newspapers are located in your city and physically go in and introduce yourself to the publishers and/or editors. Also give donations and volunteer to help them deliver physical newspapers and make sure they have an online presence.

They also have yearly conferences  (June 26-30, 2018, Norfolk, VA)   that you need to attend and even get them to highlight your personal story. At one point I even wrote freelance articles for them so there are all types of ways you can work with this local and national newspaper group. 

Join the National Association of Black Journalists (

The National Association of Black Journalists ( is also located in EVERY CITY. In Atlanta they are called African American Black Journalists (

You might find that many of these reporters (TV, Radio, etc.) unlike newspaper or print reporters at to be arrogant and uppity, but you can't throw out the baby with the bath water. Right now we need all the help we can get. 

They also hold  yearly conferences
 (Aug. 1-5, 2018 - Detroit)
 and have local news and writing groups -- so check them out, especially if you are a freelancer, columnist or blogger. 

Their latest project is 
"NABJ Aims To Take Control of 
Black Male Images in Media" 

We Are The News

Over the last few years many future leaders have emerged as writers, authors, bloggers, freelancers and syndicated columnists. This is a great opportunity to have your voice heard by joining the and

The media is trolling the internet and they have used our stories for years so if you can write -- then WRITE (#Write). If you can speak then set up a show on facebook live, youtube live, periscope, etc. or get a podcast and speak (#Speak) . When yo learn...teach...
...Maya Angelou  

The goal is not to allow your voice to be silenced and form your own news network like I did at if you have to -- because all of us - whether  we are bloggers, freelancers and syndicated columnists,  WE ARE THE NEWS!

If you are especially a non-fiction writer and author, like me who is the author of  26 non-fiction books -- help us expose the atrocities occurring to black people and other minorities all over the country. 

You don't have to attempt to get your story or their stories in national magazines because many are no longer "black-owned" anyway -- so stop begging these magazines to pick up your story. 

With the internet today everyone can become a writer, freelancer, blogger and syndicated columnist -- and spread their own stories throughout the land. We need you and our ancestors would be proud.

Turn Off The T.V.

I don't watch TV and I certainly don't watch news on TV.  Therefore, I see all the police killings because I am on all the below independent news media outlets, which everyone should join ASAP. 

On TV there is nothing but  FAKE NEWS or
WEAPONS  OF MASS DISTRACTIONS  to get you distracted from what's really happening in this country. These below news outlets are ran and operated by brave journalists and reporters  -- who are not afraid to report the truth (#truthseekers)

Did you know that most people, especially African Americans, think CNN is the main media outlet in this country and if a story does not appear on CNN -- then it is not really happening in this country? Like CNN can be everywhere - 24/7. Wake up people!!!

I can't tell you how many people have told me that they keep their TV on CNN all day. They really must lead a "sheltered" life. We have to get rid of these types of naive and immature thought patterns and subscribe to the independent news outlets below. 

If you have any chance of saving your family, first and foremost, you need to understand the truth about what's really happening in this country -- not what these FAKE NEWS CHANNELS are telling you. 

I know the police stories are heartbreaking and gut-wrenching, but if you don't really know what is happening in this country, how are you going to protect your family and others that you truly care about?

What if it happens to your family members? Will you know how to fight back and receive justice? Do you know how many black mothers have stood over caskets of their teens and young adult sons because they were shot in the back by police officers?  

Do you know that many parents don't even bother to tell their kids to be respectful to the police? Next to teaching your kids how to read, write, about the birds and bees, about discrimination and how to drive, you need to teach them to be respectful to the police -- first and foremost.

How many more videos do we need to witness, especially of Millennials, who should know better by now, not to be disrespectful to the police -- but have never been taught this by their parents. 

I realized a long time ago that you can take the horse to the water, but you can't make him drink it. Fighting back on any issue is probably one of the hardest things you will ever do in your life.  

But still it's best to have the right knowledge to take the right type of action -- when you or the ones you love come  FACE TO FACE with the police. 

I also realize some people no matter how much information you put in front of them, will never take action in their lives because they are simply just drifting through life or in a GMO coma.  

WAKE UP!!! You will only see and hear what these corporations want you to see and hear -- UNLESS you are subscribed to the independent media below.

In the past it has taken major media attention, large scale protests and even a major riot, such as Rodney King LA riot of 1992, before the Justice Department has used its legal weapons.
Where there is evidence of sexual or racial profiling and/or police brutality, the Attorney General must send a strong message to law enforcement agencies that the Justice Department will go after lawbreakers, whether they wear a "mask" or a "badge."
Not only will this book help you stay alive when you encounter a police officer, but if you are violated by the police, it provides an action plan on what steps to take to receive justice. Good luck!

The Power of Black Women
All my projects, platforms and movements were launched under my black women's movement   
because black women indeed have power. 

We know that women outnumber men in this world and more women vote than men so if black women  just got together and used their  'political power'  to take on some of these systems out here, then we all would be in a better place.
Many of the black women (and men) in office are selfish and  standoffish, which means many have been there too long. Therefore, we need to look at their records to see if they really care about black families, and if not -- I believe it's time for NEW BLOOD. 
It's time to call a 'spade a spade,' which means  "To speak plainly without avoiding unpleasant or embarrassing issues."  We can make any kind of change in this country, if we just put our minds to it. So let's register our people to vote and come out in numbers -- FULL FORCE -- like we did for President Barack Obama -- twice.

Never underestimate the  POWER OF BLACK WOMEN  (Sisters, Sistars, Queens,Goddesses, etc.). 

We are alive and well in this society today and it's time for us to take our rightful places as Queens and Goddesses.

How To Come Alive Again

If all the wrongful and illegal police killings and harvesting of your  black children's organs can't get you moving -- consider yourself to be almost hopeless. 

I know that GMOs (aka "Processed Foods") have rendered many people brainless in this country, but you can move back into the light and take back your life. 

But you need to heal your brain and body first and foremost. The best way to do that is by reading my 3rd book in my 3-part empowerment book series  "How To Take Control of Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide to Becoming Healthier in the Next 30 Days" - available as an e-book and paperback.

Out of all my  26 non-fiction books, this is the one that will bring you back from the brink of despair and hopelessness. Like Oprah said we need to get with the people  who have come alive again and work with these individuals. 

And these are the individuals that need to head up a nationwide boycott against the police, NFL, Starbucks, and any other group that dare to defy the power of black folks. 

The bottomline is many of you are about to run out of time. So therefore, it's time to  Circle Your Wagons
It's time for you to look at the changes that you can make and forget the rest -- and realize nothing will ever be the same again in this country.

Green Thumb  At 60:  
How I Started My Gardening Journey With Raised Beds and Pots and Containers

What we are experiencing right now in this country is a  "food fight." So therefore, we need to fight for those who deserve saving, especially those that fought for us our entire lives.
There is no one or nothing standing in our way to building sustainable, holistic and natural communities again throughout the land. I know this for a fact!
You see I was raised on a farm in rural Georgia and everything my 8 siblings, my mother and father and I ate came from the land. We had several apple, pear and peach trees, cows, mules, pigs, chickens, etc. -- the usual things you find on a farm.
We knew no other way of living, so despite many people today making all kinds of excuses for not growing foods, I know 'first-hand' we can get back to nature - back to our roots and start growing and eating delicious, home-grown foods again.
At 60 years old -- many people would probably be too embarrassed to admit that they are finally growing their first garden - but not me.
Our first raised bed garden was planted on June 14, 2017, for our Summer crop and contained Honeydew Melons, Cantaloupes, Watermelons, Peppers, Cucumbers, New Zealand Spinach, and Swiss Chard. 
Our Winter crop on Nov. 1, 2017 contained Swiss Chard, Beets, Lettuce, Spinach, Turnips, Cabbage, Broccoli, Mustard Greens, Kale and Cauliflower.
Our Spring crop on April 19, 2018 included Sweet Potatoe Slips, Peppers, Swiss Chard, Tomatoes, New Zealand Spinach, Cucumbers, Watermelons, Cantaloupes and Honeydew Melons.
Each season we doubled-up (or planted extra rows) of green foods because of their "nutritional value," and also had 2 citrus fruit trees (a lemon and tangerine tree) in pots on the back porch. 
It's especially Seniors today that need to start growing their own foods because homegrown foods taste better; to make sure foods are safe to eat and are Non-GMOs; to fight diseases and keep down doctor's visits; to save money and cut down on grocery bills, and in order to have a healthier environment -- as they age.

As an Empowerment and Motivational Speaker along with being a National Non-GMO Health and Wellness Expert, I see growing my own foods as a necessity. And it's certainly nothing that people need to be embarrassed about - no matter your age.
Despite the fact that over 40% of people stop growing foods after one year, my family is still going strong. I wanted to grow foods successfully for one year before I wrote a book about growing foods. So this book is the completion of my own one year gardening journey.
I can't tell you what it has been like to be able to look out of our kitchen window of our own home and look at something we started from scratch - our own backyard, raised bed garden.
We can't bring this gardening project to an end without telling you first how successful it was. Remember, never let anyone define success for you, whether you are looking at your personal or business life.
Success is in the eye of the beholder. Success is a journey not a destination. Success is simply moving forward and accomplishing whatever it was you set out to accomplish and -- that we did.
First of all I am not going to tell you our journey was easy. There were a lot of hard work and many challenges, which taught us what to look out for in the future.
Sure we made mistakes, but we have owned up to them and will be using them as guidelines for our future gardening journeys. If we are truly working to save our families and communities, then it's vital that we all be on the same page.
Remember, your ultimate goal should be to educate yourself, your family and others in your own community. The goal is to teach everyone how to fed, clothes and shelter their own families. 

And one of the best ways to get everyone, especially teenagers, who can't find work, especially in the summertime, and former prisoners involved in job's programs and business ownership is around growing foods.
However, not everyone will be able to start a business so they will need to seek employment opportunities in urban farming, agriculture, and gardening. 

The sooner we get back to basics and start growing our own foods again by becoming gardeners, farmers, or join food co-ops or food coalitions - the sooner we can save generations upon generations of families. Good luck with your gardening journey!
