HypoCrazy or Home-Land?- A Love Challenge for Liberated Land to Build Homefulness

I feel like its so close- but i don’t know
Hypokkkrazy ( as i call it ) is real….

Unhoused, poverty skolaz living in vehicles and on the streets in the stolen Ohlone/Lisjan land colonizers call Berkeley face constant harassment (like they do pretty much everywhere) -but in Berkeley,its not so much from one entity, poltrickster or community, but from all of them and mostly from "Nimbyism" (Not in my backyard), fueled by the omnipresent, anti-poor people hate that exists everywhere in colonized Turtle Island.

Cooking in Your Car- Bay Area Homelessness in 2018 and the rise of the Unhoused Middle Class

Salt, grease and fried meat filled the air. with just hint of burnt sugar thrown in. My mind wandered to breakfasts past sizzling in a greasy diner. The only thing was, i was on my bike, riding past an empty lot in East Oakland at 6:30am. No houses or restaurants were remotely close. And then i saw the smoke,and heard the sizzle. It was coming from one of a long line of late model Subarus, Hondas, BMW’s, Acura sedans, and even a Mercedes, no car older than 2015, parked along this hidden street.

The Organized Poor Pt 2 Poor People March on Washington and HUD in honor of Dr/ King's March on Washington

“We are surrounded by Black Cops”, said Leroy Moore, with POOR Magazine and Krip Hop Nation about the 15 black cops who surrounded us houseless and formerly houseless mamas, uncles, children, and elders from the Poor People’s March when we walked humbly into the Washington DC office of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to demand our housing back.

Went Down to the Rich (Wite) Man’s House: Poor and Unhoused People March on Washington DC for their lives and self-determination

Well I went down to the rich man’s house- to take back what he stole from me- take back my dignity- take back my humanity…..

 

NO SMILES, ALL ROPE

“Be Love. So much things to say right now….. Got surrounded by the police for being Black in a white neighbourhood. Smh. I’m sad and irritated to see that fear is still the first place police officers go in their pursuit to serve and protect. To the point that protocol supersedes their ability to have discernment. Many have suffered and died in moments like these.
