STAY WOKE!! Video – “Science Agenda to Exterminate Blacks”

Image result for extermination of blacks


I’ve never been the conspiracy theorist, but the video ” The Science Agenda to Exterminate Blacks,” is something that every person of color should definitely watch.  The video is laced with facts and receipts of governmental experiments and covert operations that are intended to affect and diminish the black population.  Although shocking, this video proves what some of us already knew.  It is a harsh truth and reality but that is why we must educate and inform ourselves to not only protect ourselves but our children’s children, children. Wonder why some people do not get vaccinations or vaccinate their children? Why certain foods should not even be considered in our diet? How these vaccinations contain human properties from aborted babies? Watch below:

This video lecture documents the pattern of heavy metals poisoning, medical experimentation, organ harvesting, covert fertility task forces and other tactics that seek to eliminate blacks from our planet. These genocidal tactics are carried out in the name of science and medicine via the following vectors: Food supply (laced with infertility chemicals, confirmed by the New York Times quoting a U.S. President’s science advisor) Water supply (heavy metals poisoning, as we recently witnessed in Flint, Michigan) Medical experimentation (Tuskegee, Guatemalan prisoner experiments funded by the U.S. government, etc.) Immunization campaign (covert sterilization of young women in Africa) Cancer (disproportionately affects people of darker skin color due to vitamin D deficiency) Abortion activities that target blacks in order to harvest baby organ tissue for use in vaccines — medical cannibalism.

DMV’s own Logic represented in a powerful way at Sunday’s VMA’s. He performed his single “1-800-273-8255,” which is the actual phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.  He rapped lyrics like “I want you to be alive / You don’t gotta die today,” he stood alongside survivors of suicide attempts and individuals who lost people in their lives to suicide. The song touches home for me because I have been personally affected by suicide and people who deal with depression.

Logic performed the song alongside Alessia Cara, Khalid, and suicide attempt survivors.

The statement of support for people dealing with depression and other mental illness appears to have left an impact on viewers. Billboard reports there was a 50% increase in calls to the number after Logic’s performance. The Lifeline’s Director of Communications Frances Gonzalez stated, “Sharing that healing and hope are possible helps individuals in crisis, [and] as changes the conversation around suicide from one of isolation to one of hope and connection.”

The song is also impacting charts as the national platform of the VMA’s gave awareness to the positive song. According to HitsDailyDouble , “1-800-273-8255” saw a sales boost after the VMAs. The song jumped from #18 to #3 on the iTunes Store chart after his performance.

Chris Breezy Diagnosed With Mental Health Disorders

According to TMZ:

Chris Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder … and that’s why he has had such anger issues … this according to new court docs.

Chris was in court today for a progress hearing in the Rihanna beating case. Documents were filed by the facility where Chris just completed 90 days of anger management therapy. In fact, Chris stayed longer, just completing 95 days.

In the legal docs — obtained by TMZ — an official from the rehab facility wrote that … in addition to his diagnosis … Chris was self-medicating inappropriately.

The facility writes, “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.” They never explain the cause of the PTSD. The letter also says Chris was diagnosed with Bipolar II.

The letter says Chris is on meds for the bipolar and other conditions.

Chris has learned various relaxation exercises, according to the letter, and he’s tested negative for drugs, including sticky icky , during his stay.

The facility says he’s doing really well. It says he gets up at 5 AM and works hard. They say he’s been especially good with community service, saying, “Mr. Brown’s attitude has been beyond exemplary in regard to his community service responsibilities.”


Josh Marks Diagnosed With Schizophrenia Before Committing Suicide


This is such a unfortunate story!! As I discussed on Ev’ryday Black Radio when we first discussed the story on Saturday, mental illness in the Black community is real.  Being a Social Worker myself and working in social services for over 9 years, I have seen first hand the stigma that is associated with anything involving therapy, counseling, “seeking professional help” etc.  Many in our community feel that people will be judgmental or disassociate with them if they are diagnosed with a disorder, which causes people who may be ill to deteriorate.  This may be case in point, where Josh Marks had been decompensating for awhile, and broke when doctors officially diagnosed him.

Via TMZ reports:

“Masterchef” star Josh Marks was diagnosed with Schizophrenia 24 before committing suicide … so says his mother, who claims the thought of dealing with more mental issues put him over the edge.

Marks’ mom Paulette Mitchell is saying the reality star completed an out-patient treatment program Thursday — where he was diagnosed with schizophrenia … according to a family rep.

Mitchell first told the Chicago Tribune the chef had finally come to terms with his bi-polar disorder … but “couldn’t bear the thought of another diagnosis.”

Paulette claims Marks was upset about the doctors assessment … so she spent the night with him and left the next afternoon to pick her daughter up from school.

A few hours later … she received a phone call from a family member saying people had called saying Josh was walking through a nearby alley clutching a gun.

Mitchell says she rushed over to the alleyway to find him — but instead discovered her son dead from a gunshot wound … with a revolver at his side.

His mother also admits … some of the Marks’ delusions centered around Gordon Ramsay, and that’s why he told cops back in July that the chef had possessed his body when he got arrested.

The family is hoping to start a foundation in his honor to help mental illness awareness.
