Black Film is Revolutionary!


Tomorrow marks the last day of BSU week. We would like to thank everyone who came out to honor black self love, art, culture and black revolutionaries in our own school. We loved celebrating how revolutionary it is to be black in a world that often sees our strength as a negative.

Help us bring this week to a close with black movie night we hope to see you there!

It is with deep generational sadness due to the racism experienced by me, our ancestors and now you, that I urge you to stay the course and fight for your right to exist in an educational environment that fails to recognize the threat to your right to LIVE. I am further disgusted that, the Chancellor, a BROWN man, will support ages old white supremacy by ushering your proclaimations of "BLACK LIVES MATTER", to the "back of the bus"! Stay strong! Keep fighting! Never give up! Let the world know about the ongoing RACISM at the WHITEST university in the UNC system -UNC-WILMINGTON = UNC-WHITE!
Internship Alert: At Outco, a career accelerator for Software Engineers, we are looking for interns for our Marketing Team! Please apply here:
Kenan Hall today. You are heard and supported. Black Lives Matter.
Dear BSU - We want you to know that we, at Justice And Equality For UNCW without a shadow of a doubt, have your back. We know that you all were scared to speak out that you were not satisfied with the lack of support the chancellor was able to give you, and that he focus was on "civility" and his lack of support for black lives on campus. We were scared to speak out too. But the time is now. Society is finally at critical mass. And we can not hesitate in action. You have our full commitment of support from us, whether that is in planning, protection, legal, or anything you may need. Followers of justice - we ask you to go to their page and wrap them in love, letting them know that even though they feel alone, that each of us walk with them. We also ask you to SHOW the chancellor how you feel. Apparently emails aren't enough, so we ask you this weekend to make a sign for his lawn, and deliver it to 1705 Market St, Wilmington, NC 28403 where he resides. We ask that you do NOT protest, but quietly add your sign to his lawn this weekend, so he can see us, because apparently hearing us has not been enough. We will be posting an event for this tomorrow. Love you all Black Lives Matter - Justice
All Lives Matter at All times, not just one. No life is more important than the other.
MY THREE FAMILIES (BELLAMYS, HANKINS AND MCLEANS) HAVE NOTHING TO CELEBRATE ON THE 4TH OF JULY. The great celebration started when the slave owner, wife and their children (our black ladies nursed and reared) gathered at their mansion (big house), which we built, ate a mouthwatering meal cooked by house slaves consisting of vegetables which we field slaves grew and meat from livestock we tended. It was hot so they had large castrated/eunuch male slaves with strong upper body strength fan them as they ate. Did I mention that we also washed and dried the dishes, pots and pans? The slave owners buffet consisted of: Country ham, pork chops, fried chicken, fried fish, corn on the cobb, collards, succotash, biscuits, tea and apple pie. Whatever was leftover they fed to the hogs. They did not want the slaves to develop a taste for good food. The slave’s meal consisted of: Pig feet, pig tail, fat back, chitterlings, fish heads, chicken feet, black eye peas, sweet potatoes, corn pone and well water. We, slaves planted cotton in March and April. Eight to ten days after the cotton plants pushed up through the topsoil, we started “hoeing” (chopping the weeds that grew around it). The latter part of August we started picking cotton. In 1776 we were working from sun-up to sun-down in the cotton fields. The “evil” whites were proud slave owners. The “good” whites did not own any slaves. They kept their heads up and maintained a modicum of dignity. They pretended everything was okay because they enjoyed the rich lifestyle of their fellow “born again” white Christians. The “poor” whites were treated then as they are today as “poor white trash”. (Their words, not mine.) All three justified their inhuman treatment of black slaves by quoting a misnomer from their preachers about the curse of Ham. Independence Day then and today is not a forward movement for us blacks. It is tantamount to us moving from a sub-par low-rent single-wide trailer park in Wilmington, North Carolina to the high-rent slums in New York City. My family will spend our time educating our people on registering and voting. We will spend our money with Black businesses that give us quality products and professional services. We are blessed to have many in New Hanover County. I will name a few for your information. F.B. Hankins, Certified Public Accountant-Faye Bellamy Hankins— (910) 362-0209.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF SUE REPUBLICAN: Sue gets up at 6 a.m. and fills her coffee pot with water to prepare her morning coffee. The water is clean and good because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With her first swallow of coffee, she takes her daily medication. Her medications are safe to take because some stupid co**ie liberal fought to insure their safety and that they work as advertised. All but $10 of her medications are paid for by her employer's medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance - now Sue gets it too. She prepares her morning breakfast, bacon and eggs. Sue's bacon is safe to eat because some girly-man liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry. In the morning shower, Sue reaches for her shampoo. Her bottle is properly labeled with each ingredient and its amount in the total contents because some crybaby liberal fought for her right to know what she was putting on her body and how much it contained. Sue dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air she breathes is clean because some environmentalist wacko liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. She walks to the subway station for her government-subsidized ride to work. It saves her considerable money in parking and transportation fees because some fancy-pants liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor. Sue begins her work day. She has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Sue's employer pays these standards because Sue's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union. If Sue is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed, she'll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some stupid liberal didn't think she should lose her home because of her temporary misfortune. Its noontime and Sue needs to make a bank deposit so she can pay some bills. Sue's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Sue's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the Great Depression. Sue has to pay her Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and her below-market federal student loan because some elitist liberal decided that Sue and the government would be better off if she was educated and earned more money over her lifetime. Sue is home from work. She plans to visit her father this evening at his farm home in the country. She gets in her car for the drive. Her car is among the safest in the world because some America-hating liberal fought for car safety standards. She arrives at her childhood home. Her generation was the third to live in the house financed by Farmers' Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electricity until some big-government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification. She is happy to see her father, who is now retired. Her father lives on Social Security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, cheese-eating liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Sue wouldn't have to. Sue gets back in her car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't mention that Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Sue enjoys throughout her day. Sue agrees: "We don't need those big-government liberals ruining our lives! After all, I'm self-made and believe everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have." from my iPhone --

MY THREE FAMILIES 12 STEP LIFE, LIBERTY AND PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS PLATFORM. Are you satisfied with the elected politicians at the local, state and federal level? We must make a choice in November to rehire or fire them. The politicians will have to accept all or most of our 12 platform demands to earn our vote. 1. In 1776 America was founded. One hundred and eighty-seven (187) years later in 1963 Congress passed the Equal Pay Act for women. Fifty-five (55) years later in 2018 we still need one more state to ratify it to become law. This is the 2017 pay chart. When a white man is paid $1.00. The white lady is paid 79 cents, black lady 60 cents and Hispanic lady 55 cents. We must give ladies equal pay for equal work. 2. TRUMP tax cut is for the “rich only” and puts us over 10 trillion dollars in debt (a billion is equal to 1,000 million—a trillion is equal to 1,000 billion). It will save the TRUMP family over 1 billion dollars. How much did the tax cut save you? We need to repeal this law. 3. My N.C. 7th district congressman, David Rozier, voted 71 times to stop Obamacare which insured people with pre-existing conditions. Health care is a right. We need affordable health care plan for all. Bring back Obamacare and make the necessary improvements. 4. Too many of our tax dollars are being spent on charter schools that are for the select few. We must put that money back into our public schools and make every school a “great” school. We need more money for school buildings, supplies, teachers and bring back the thousands of enthusiastic teacher’s assistants who were fired to cut the school budgets. 5. The Immigration and Nationality Act was passed in 1952. Sixty-six (66) years later, 2018, we need comprehensive immigration reform. 6. Around 15% of students drop out of high school and less than 60% of high school graduates go on to college. The student that takes all required classes only and graduate with a C+ average is prepared to do little or nothing in the workforce. We need to reform education by bringing back “old school hands on” vocational education and life skills. Start civics 1 and 2 for all middle and high school students so they will have a basic knowledge of how local, state and federal governments operate. 7. No more career quid-pro-quo politicians playing musical chairs. We need term limits. 8. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are not qualified to work in our White House. We must prohibit politicians from hiring relatives, friends and other unqualified/dangerous people. Mandate their staff be diversified and require them to hold three Q&A town hall meetings each year. 9. Make race and s*x discrimination, gun control, opioid abuse, fracking, offshore drilling, clean air, water and mental health top priorities. 10. Bring 75% of our “battle-weary/over deployed” troops back home from the many wars we are currently engaged. Some 4,486 brave troops died in Iraq and some returned home to live the rest of their lives with serious physical and mental injuries. Vice-president, Dick Cheney’s company, Halliburton, made $39.5 billion during the Iraq war. We need to use some of those billion dollars to give our senior citizens at least a 25% raise in their “too small” social security checks, and free first-class health care and job training for all our veterans. In 1961 President Eisenhower warned us about the military industrial-complex. We did not listen, so now we can truthfully say in 2018 “the sun never sets on the U. S. Military”. 11. TRUMP’S wall will cost over 75 billion dollars to build and over 150 million dollars a year to maintain. The new leaders we elect on November 6th can create a Civilian Conservation Corps, jobs program, that would put our young and other unemployed people to work on repairing and building new roads, bridges, schools and other ancillary jobs. 12. Over two thousand years ago an honest tax collector named Zacchaeus said, (paraphrased) “If I have cheated any man, I will repay him fourfold”. Lock up the convicted politicians for a minimum of 4 years and make them pay back four times the amount of tax dollars they embezzled/ pocketed. I will vote for the most honest politician who will fight for the most items on my family’s list. Please make your platform list discuss and share it with your family and friends. My family will go “all-in” by registering, voting in every election and telling the politicians what our demands are. Will your family go “all-in”??? James J. Hankins is an Army veteran, N. C. A&T State University alumni, retired vocational education teacher, retired construction manager for Youth-Build Wilmington, past president of the New Hanover County NAACP branch and author of the book “What We Blacks Need To Do’.
