www.bittermedicineblogs.com – In a recently leaked document, it has been revealed that the FBI has once again declared war on the conscious Black community.
The FBI has been running a secret domestic surveillance program under the name COINTELPRO (counterintelligence program) for over 70 years. Its aim has been to monitor and "neutralize" domestic groups deemed to be a danger to national security. However, it seems the only group they really monitor is the Black Nationalist/ Black conscious community- a racist, white supremacist motivation.
Clearly, the purpose of the FBI is to scare Black people in general; to frighten and possibly even kill Black people who want to make change.
In today’s broadcast, we discuss the racist FBI history towards Blacks in America while unpacking the recent blog (www.bittermedicineblogs.com) by author Onitaset Kumat, titled, ‘The Coded Messages behind the FBI’s “Black Identity Extremist” Document’ (https://goo.gl/YaGhZR). Onitaset does a splendid job of breaking down and revealing the FBI code held within its 12-page report.
Per the report, “The FBI assesses it is very likely incidents of alleged police abuse against African Americans since then (the murder of Mike Brown) have continued to feed the resurgence in ideologically motivated, violent criminal activity within the BIE movement”. This is coded language to criminalize all Blacks that are fighting against their oppressor. Listen to learn more.

www.bittermedicineblogs.com – On this day, Columbus Day, we discuss President Donald J. Trump’s Columbus Day address. The President stated:
“Five hundred and twenty-five years ago, Christopher Columbus completed an ambitious and daring voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas. The voyage was a remarkable and then-unparalleled feat that helped launch the age of exploration and discovery. The permanent arrival of Europeans to the Americas was a transformative event that undeniably and fundamentally changed the course of human history and set the stage for the development of our great Nation. Therefore, on Columbus Day, we honor the skilled navigator and man of faith, whose courageous feat brought together continents and has inspired countless others to pursue their dreams and convictions -- even in the face of extreme doubt and tremendous adversity.
More than five centuries after his initial voyage, we remember the "Admiral of the Ocean Sea" for building the critical first link in the strong and enduring bond between the United States and Europe. While Isabella I and Ferdinand II of Spain sponsored his historic voyage, Columbus was a native of the City of Genoa, in present day Italy, and represents the rich history of important Italian American contributions to our great Nation. There can be no doubt that American culture, business, and civic life would all be much less vibrant in the absence of the Italian American community. We also take this opportunity to reaffirm our close ties to Columbus's country of birth, Italy. Italy is a strong ally and a valued partner in promoting peace and promoting prosperity around the world.
In commemoration of Christopher Columbus's historic voyage, the Congress, by joint resolution of April 30, 1934, and modified in 1968 (36 U.S.C. 107), as amended, has requested the President proclaim the second Monday of October of each year as "Columbus Day."
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim October 9, 2017, as Columbus Day. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also direct that the flag of the United States be displayed on all public buildings on the appointed day in honor of our diverse history and all who have contributed to shaping this Nation.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this sixth day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.” -- DONALD J. TRUMP
As you can see, Trump shared many kind words about the holiday’s honoree but made no mention of the explorer’s impact on Indigenous People. Past presidents, while praising Columbus, have still acknowledged the atrocities that Columbus committed on the kind people he met in the New World.
But this is no surprise. In fact, many white people celebrate on Columbus Day the history of their ancestors being savages. Columbus Day is a day where they celebrate European conquest, and claim how Europeans were better at conquest, smarter, and stronger than everyone else. And they are unapologetic about all of it.

www.bittermedicineblogs.com – In this episode, we discuss the super Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein has been accused of having sexually inappropriate behavior towards women in a recent scathing New York Times article.
Weinstein's alleged sexually inappropriate behavior with women in the last 30 years was detailed in the Times report published Thursday. Since the initial report, other women have come forward with similar accusations, but Hollywood has been silent for the most part—unlike when Bill Cosby initially faced his accusations. And even with these accusations, white society finds a way to paint Weinstein in a positive light! Did they do the same for Cosby?
The point here is for Black folks to once again recognize what it looks like to remain on code. In all the accusations, there is little to no mention of pursuing a trial against Harvey Weinstein. In fact, Lisa Bloom, the daughter of Gloria Allred, who are both infamous for representing sexually abused women against high powered, alleged abusers – especially when the accused abuser is a Black man- was representing and coaching Weinstein at the onset of these accusations! She recently quit, but only because it likely would hurt her business if she continued at his side.
Hollywood has long had a “play for pay” standard, which white society always understood. That understanding goes out of the door when the accused is Black. The Black community needs to learn to stop taking the moral high ground and seeking fairness. Fairness is for losers. We must stay on code with each other, the same way others stay on code against Us. Listen to learn more.
