It is extremely hypercritical that people can convince themselves and their followers into believing that they are real Activist simply because they’re involve into something that has to do with change.
In the world today, there are too many self proclaimers who professes to be about change for whatever reasons. They will post very appealing information of picture convincing their followers and the public as to why their fight for whatever reasons must be supported at all cost.
The most famous quote by Activist Sdwjr “Proclaiming a message about a cost that you’re apart or deem unjust is never a reason to claim Activism ship or the name Activist.”
There is a broad definition of what is an Activist and anyone who follows that pattern is consider one. If that is all people need to do to be call an Activist.Then That’s insane! That’s all that makes you an Activist.
“Standing on the podium on speech day don’t make you the speaker my friend.” A famous quote according to Activist Sdwjr.
There are many self proclaimed Activists who never be arrested and charged for what they stand or fight for. But they’re called Activist which is total out of the realm of it.
” Posting popular Jesus or Christ don’t make you like popular Jesus or Christ.” Sdwjr
According to Google in a paraphrase version, to be an activist is to act on behalf of solving social and political issues, it is to be at the forefront of a movement, often times compromising your own life in order to seek justice for other people often times not even a family members.
Anyone who has dedicated themselves on behalf of social and political issues have been arrested, falsely charged or face possible jail time. If they haven’t faced any one of the above situations they are not an Activist and they need to quit claiming they’re.
Therefore professing to be an Activist kind of like Malcolm X, Dr. MLK, Nelson Mandela, John Lewis and Activist Sdwjr, it means you’ve gone through an arrest, false charge or possibility jail.
“If you haven’t faced any one of the above situations you are not an Activist and you need to quit claiming you’re.”Sdwjr
In reality, people should understand that we actually need the activists. We need them to talk to us, to push us, teach us, defy us, contradict us. They make us think differently, with a accelerated sense of urgency, and they force us to be better.
According to the Revolt TV, all 10 men were processed and later released.Rep. Hank Johnson was arrested on Thursday (July 22) on Capitol Hill while protesting to protect voting rights.
“In the spirit of his dear friend and mentor — the late Congressman John Lewis — Rep. Johnson was getting in ‘good trouble’ fighting for and protecting civil and voting rights for all Americans,” the congressman’s spokesperson Andy Phelan said in a statement.
The protest, called “Brothers Day of Action on Capitol Hill,” was organized by Black Voters Matter. Along with Rep. Johnson; Black Voters Matter’s Cliff Albright, Rev. Mark Thompson, Color of Change President Rashad Robinson, Former NAACP president Cornell William Brooks and more called on Congress to end the filibuster and pass the For The People Act. The men chanted, “Hey, hey! Ho, ho! The filibuster has got to go!”
Capitol Police arrested the demonstrators after they blocked the entrance to the Hart Senate Office Building and accused them of “unlawfully demonstrating. The men were charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding.
Earlier this week, REVOLT reported that Vice President Kamala Harris was in talks with Republicans about the For The People Act.
“There is a lot of work to be done. There is no question about that,” she told CBS News. “I join the chorus in saying that everyone has to approach this issue with a sense of urgency and a sense of deep-seated commitment to fighting against these efforts to suppress the vote.”
The legislation would change campaign finance laws, automate voter registration, ban partisan gerrymandering, expand access to early and absentee voting and more.
Earlier this year, Lil Uzi Vert had a pink diamond implanted into his forehead. Uzi said that if the diamond was removed from his head in the wrong way, he could die. It was reportedly worth $24 million. Earlier this year, he explained that he got the diamond in his forehead so he would never lose the expensive diamond.
“I’m Lil Uzi. I’m turnt up. So $24 million on a ring is the stupidest idea because I’m gonna look down and that ring ain’t gon’ be there,” he said during an appearance on “The Fat Joe Show.” “I know me. I wake up in odd places and different sceneries.”
“If I don’t get it took out the right way, I could die …..,” he captioned a selfie, which showed blood leaking from the natural pink diamond. “No seriously.”
The now-deleted tweet sparked reactions from fans who were concerned with his well-being. “Bro, if this is not safe,” one user wrote. “You better take it off. I don’t want to see you dead.”
According to a Friday (July 23) report from the Revolt TV São Paulo, Brazil-based rapper Renato de Santa had some some flesh removed from his face to get what he calls a “demon smile.” To achieve this look, he had someone use a scalpel to carved flesh from the corners of his mouth all the way up to his ears. Seems like it would be pretty painful.
De Santa’s latest body modification is one that comes after he’d already had his eyeballs dyed black and implants put under his head to simulate the appearance of horns. It was inspired by folklore.
“My new scarification is inspired by the Japanese legend of Kuchisake-onna – the woman with the cut mouth,” the 41-year-old rapper said of the work, which resemble’s Joker’s smile in The Dark Knight. The subject of the legend is a woman who has her mouth cut from one ear to another, and if you don’t say she’s beautiful, you get a lethal response.
While people from older generations haven’t exactly rocked with his body modifications, people much younger than himself appreciate what they see. “The kids like it a lot and see me as a superhero. They ask how the implants were made and also my eyes
Mississippi’s attorney general is trying to have it overturned.The Roe v. Wade case that unfolded in 1973, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that legalized abortion in the U.S. as long as it came before viability.
“Under the Constitution, may a State prohibit elective abortions before viability? Yes. Why? Because nothing in constitutional right, structure, history, or tradition supports a right to abortion,” he said in a brief.
General Fitch says the outcome of the Roe v. Wade was “egregiously wrong,” and he wants the Supreme Court to allow a law that would make it illegal to get an abortion at the 15-week mark of pregnancy. Currently, people who are pregnant can get an abortion until around the 24-week mark—a time when a fetus has reached “viability.
CEO and president of the Center for Reproductive Rights Nancy Northup, who strongly opposes General Fitch’s argument.
“Today’s brief reveals the extreme and regressive strategy, not just of this law, but of the avalanche of abortion bans and restrictions that are being passed across the country,” she said in a statement today. “Their goal is for the Supreme Court to take away our right to control our own bodies and our own futures — not just in Mississippi, but everywhere.”
10 months after President Joe Biden— a Democratic nominee for the presidential office—assured public that he would make Roe v. Wade the “law of the land” if the decision were ever overturned. He answered the question after then President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett, a woman who was known to challenge the decision, were confirmed as a justice (she eventually was).
“We don’t know exactly what she will do, although the expectation is that she may very well move to overrule Roe,” Biden said at the time. “… The only responsible response to that,” he continued, “would be to pass legislation and make Roe the law of the land. That’s what I would do.”
As the President of the free world I have a strong words for people questioning the seriousness of the January 6 Capitol insurrection.
“I don’t care if you think I’m Satan reincarnated,” he said Wednesday at a CNN town hall in Cincinnati. “The fact is you can’t look at that television and say nothing happened on the sixth and listen to people who say this was a peaceful march.”
President Joe Biden was asked at a town hall whether he was confident US lawmakers could cooperate.
“I stand by what I said,” Biden told Lemon. “Never before has there been an attempt by state legislatures to take over the ability to determine who won – not count the votes, determine who won.”

According to Latika Sim, her 15-year-old son Maliyk Sim was at her sister’s house in the Villa Rica area when he called her to inform her that he’d been attacked by 29-year-old Matthew Martel. He told her that he hit his head after the man placed his hands on his neck and threw his body against the garage. Per home security footage, Martel also charged toward the teen before pulling out a belt and hitting him.
“I was just panicked,” Latika said after watching the video.
Matthew Martel faces charges of cruelty to children, disorderly conduct, battery and simple assault for his attack of 15-year-old Maliyk Sim.
“I was just, like, in 2021 I could not believe that a fully grown man would think that it was okay to come outside with a belt…I have never once thought, ‘You know what, let me take my belt off and beat somebody else’s kid.’”
Though Latika wishes Maliyk would have stood up for himself just a little more, she is happy that he didn’t as she is unaware of how that situation might have ended.
“My son has played football, he has played every sport, he is fully capable of defending himself. But he knew he could not defend himself. So he walked away. He walked away and still this man is chasing him with a belt. So now I am in a full panic because my kids are unprotected,” said Latika.
She continued, “He…knows that if he would have defended himself, then he probably would have went to jail or the reality [is], he probably would have been dead.”
Following the incident, Martel was taken into custody on charges of counts, including cruelty to children, disorderly conduct, battery and simple assault. Amid his arrest, he told cops that he attacked Maliyk because he was upset with his use of profanity. It was also revealed that the 29-year-old was out on bond for another child cruelty case.

“There was no warning. As soon as I seen blue lights, I heard shots,” Tazmon said. “The officer just started shooting at him for no reason. I didn’t hear a warning shot. All I heard was, ‘Hands up!’ one time. And all [Isaiah] had was his phone, so I know he put his hands up.”
Isaiah’s sister, Yolanda Brown, added, “I’m just still trying to figure out where [the deputy] felt the threat at, to feel the need to shoot.”
Virginia State Police, which is investigating the incident, confirmed Isaiah was unarmed during the incident.
According to Yolanda, Isaiah is currently in the ICU undergoing surgery for his multiple gunshot wounds. He was shot in the face, chest and pelvic area.
NBC 4 writes that Isaiah’s siblings are considering legal action against the department and have reached out to the NAACP for help.

Texas Gov.] Greg Abbott is trying to erase MLK Jr., César Chávez and Susan B. Anthony from the Texas curriculum and recast the KKK as the good guys,” one person reacted to the bill on Twitter. “This is an assault on history and it must be stopped.”
“When Jim Crow was first established, the process was slow, one outrage at a time. The state laws were systematically altered over a decade. I’m sure some ppl thought, ‘Look at that, another crazy thing’ and went on with their lives,” another tweeted. “DON’T REPEAT HISTORY.”
Democrats in Texas’ House of Representatives are currently in Washington, D.C.; where they traveled in hopes of blocking a restrictive voting bill in the state. While the new education bill has been passed in Senate, it won’t have a chance to become law until Democrats return and the House votes puts it to a vote.
The bill was authored by Republican State Sen. Bryan Hughes, who argued it would combat the “pernicious, wrong [and] harmful” effects of critical race theory, which is not currently taught in Texas public schools.
“I have spoken to Republican senators — both elected Republicans and Republican leaders,” the VP said about the For the People Act, a sweeping voting rights bill that stalled in the Senate.
“I’ve talked with [Republican Sen. Lisa] Murkowski about this issue,” she added.
According to the Brennan Center for Justice, at least 14 states have passed laws that restrict voting access since May. The Justice Department is currently suing Georgia over a voting law the state enacted in April, alleging that the legislation specifically limits ballot access to Black voters.
Last week, Harris met with Black women leaders about the issue and spoke to Texas Democrats who broke quorum to block a controversial voting rights bill. According to CBS, she’s also planning to meet with Native American and Alaskan native leaders next week to discuss voting rights.
“There is a lot of work to be done. There is no question about that,” she said. “I join the chorus in saying that everyone has to approach this issue with a sense of urgency and a sense of deep-seated commitment to fighting against these efforts to suppress the vote.”
