Stokely Carmichael gave his most famous speech on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley in 1966.

Imagine your son going out to the real world he has a kid and a wife then there's a knock on the door and you look thru the peephole and the cops and their heads are down and you're confused you open the door and they tell you “Ma’am your son has died”,and you say how they say he has been gunned down by an officer and you know your son was unarmed and you're confused because your son has nevered been doing something bad.This and every day thing you see to african american some are innocent and unarmed and they get shot by police because they say they were fighting back or they were about to pull out a gun and this happens everywhere and police brutality happens every state and everywhere and it mostly happens to african american and other races.
Some folks say and support “Black Lives” and others, “All Lives”. As time go on, things take a turn ‘for the worse’. The ‘turn for the worse’ is due to the mindset of many people and the mass media. With time should come justice, peace and common ground on what is happening, but what if no one is supportive or have no knowledge of what is to come? The saying of “All Lives Matter” is deleterious and ruinous to the “Black Lives Matter” movement and support and to the black community by deteriorating their beliefs, livelihood, and mentality.
This is Isaiah Carter. After coming back from the heart breaking Normandy Invasion. There’s something more devastating than losing my fellows during the war. I saw the news of Rosa Parks. Because she's black just like me, so she was forced to yield the seat on the bus and she even got arrested by the cops because she refused. Man, what kind of mistakes have we done to deserve all these. Therefore, after serving in the army as a patriot I decide to serve for my African American people. I joined the sit-ins in the 1960. I want the white people to know we are humans too. We African Americans should be treated the same as you white people. Rosa Parks was brave enough to fight against you police officers. Now, I, Isaiah Carter is going to challenge

In the October 1966 speech given by Stokely Carmichael, we are faced with a variety of terms involving racism and racist remarks. Just the year prior to this speech “blacks” had earned the right to vote on national ballots. The speech was given at the University of California Berkeley. Stokely Carmichael was born on June 29th, 1941, and he moved to the United States of America in 1951. This means at the time of his speech he was 25 years old.

BlackLivesMatter became a hashtag in the summer of 2013, when an Oakland, California, work organizer called Alicia Garza responded on her Facebook henchman to the acquittal of George Zimmerman, the man who gunned down Trayvon Martin.In June, after Dylann Roof's homicidal fit in a church in Charleston, South Carolina, Black Lives Matter became a statement and condemned the shooting as an perform of terror. After the Charleston shooting, a number of memorials to the Confederate States of America were graffitied with "Black Lives Matter" or otherwise vandalized. Amid the piercing cold, the makeshift encampment became a kind of community, and each of the protesters found a role: bringing pone, sweeping the streets, stoking the fire pits.
Racism has been in existence for a very long time, it did not start with East Tennessee State University. It can be dated back to the time of slavery, this gives us an understanding that the event that happened is more of a societal and historical problem.
I often wonder if the people on my timeline who feel like protesting is stupid would have been the same people throwing bricks/rocks or spitting on Martin Luther King as he peacefully protested? Would they have been innocent bystanders or the bully' s who were in full attendance for hanging, segregation, the inability for kids to attend schools, be raped, sold to others, separated from their families, etc.? Would they have looked at all white people as terrorist and criminals for the few KKK members who participated in heinous acts the same way that they look at the Black Lives Matter Movement for the few people that turn something peaceful into a riot or looting? What message would they have heard? The killing or the peace? Would they have
As I sit in the auditorium, at a diversity conference, surrounded by other African Americans, something tells me that I am right where I need to be. I didn’t realize it at the moment, but this was a life changing experience for me. I was able to surround myself with others of similar backgrounds, have a deeper understanding of the term “black excellence”, and share some of my struggles with others around the nation who have dealt with the same issues. This conference, as a whole, allowed me to be more comfortable with who I am as an African American woman in today’s society.
