A Freighter Full Of Hope

Something I don't currently talk much about (because there is so much else to discuss) is my deep love of technology. I am currently obsessed with AI and what it means for the future of humanity. Here is an image I created with an AI image creator called Midjourney. The prompt I gave it was: […]

Akron: You are radicalizing your Black community.

Here's a picture of me and Imokhai Okolo. It was taken in mid-March of this year. Imokhai has been betrayed by his city. Jayland Walker was murdered in extreme cold blood with 94 bullets all meant for his unarmed body. The city of Akron did something similar to Imokhai. They looked to destroy his character. […]

We Must Love Our Police Officers

The more radical I become in my activism the more extreme my positions of love become. I often like to tell you to love pedophiles. I do that because I know it’s the hardest challenge of love for many of you (unless of course you have a loved one that is a pedophile, like I […]

Who Cares?

This is the memorial that was created near where Jayland Walker was shot and killed. It's at East Wilbeth and South Main. I took this picture at a very peaceful protest last night. I kept coming back to this little tree. I'd take pictures from different angles. Like in hopes that it would tell me […]

Will You Play Well With Others?

I was out talking to voters yesterday and a woman asked me this question: “Will you play well with others?” That’s a really good question. It represents a deep understanding of who I am. I really appreciated the question. She is wondering if I will be able to work with other members of city council […]

Jayland Walker Was Murdered By 8 Akron Police Officers

Not killed. Murdered.  I know this for a fact simply by the admission of Chief Mylett. I have heard him say on several occasions that an officer must be able to account for every single bullet that leaves the barrel of his gun. As soon as the threat is eliminated they must stop firing. By […]

I'm really excited about the abortion access amendment groups are trying to get on the November ballot in Ohio. The proposed amendment would provide that every “individual has a right to make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions,” including abortion. On top of that there is an Ohio Marijuana Legalization Initiative that I think […]

Why Do I Want To Put Myself Through This?

I read this article: Akron, Ohio, police condemn councilwoman's comment on Jayland Walker and my first thought was: "Why am I doing this to myself?" I could sell a couple assets and retire. I'm 51 years old and I could just move to an island or California or someplace where there is less racism and […]

It Turns Out We All Live In A Prison

Did you see the new policy where Akron Public Schools is locking away some students cellphones? We are starting at East, Buchtel and Ellet. We have contracted with a company called Yondr for $43,450 to lease 2,475 locking pouches. East and Buchtel's campuses include grades six through 12, and Ellet is nine through 12. (What […]

We Lost

For about 5 years now we have gone to every court possible asking for the permission to let me somehow help any homeless people that can't find their way into a shelter or a house. We have been denied at every turn. Our property rights litigation journey is now over. Consider it lost. Consider it […]

Akron Ohio Is A Racist City

Akron Ohio is a racist city. It always has been and I see no indication based on the leadership of today that it ever will not be a racist city. I could give you countless reasons to support this statement. But I'll just give you the most recent one: Imokhai Okola is a Jones Day […]

This is the arm of an 80-year-old woman who had her purse stolen and was knocked to the ground in front of Gionino's Pizzeria in The Valley. The man who stole her purse ripped it so hard off her arm that it caused this injury. This shit infuriates me. Ever since I heard about this […]

The Murder of Tyre Nichols

I’m pleased that the court system of Memphis was able to bring justice to Tyre Nichols, a 29-year-old Black man who was brutally beaten and murdered by 5 police officers. They all are charged with 2nd degree murder. The added twist here is that all 5 officers are Black. So the idea that changing the […]

January 6, 2023 - the 4th anniversary of the forced closure of Akron's tent city.

Today, January 6, commemorates the forced closing of Akron's tent city on my private property on January 6, 2019. I have ALWAYS said, if you don't like my ideas then come up with your own ideas. Our homeless-run tent village ran for almost exactly 2 years. The MetroParks closed a very established homeless camp on […]

The Results of my Christmas Eve Sleep Out

I like trying to think of activist direct action ideas that both raise awareness of the humanitarian crimes we impose on our OWN CITIZENS by stealing their tents and belongings and leaving them stranded on freezing streets in the richest, most “Christian” country in the world AND trying to help these people at the same […]

A Demon From Hell

As soon as I said my name it was like she realized she was looking at a demon for the 7th level of hell. She exclaimed, "No!" She quickly shut and locked the door. I've had some people not appreciate my presence on their doorstep as I knock on what is now over 1000 voters' […]

Last night city council ignored the people and voted to force a half-baked, high-priced rental complex down the throats of citizens who have fought so systematically and respectfully to at least slow down the process. I've been there. We had hundreds of people come in support of the tent village we were running on my […]

What I've Learned About Democrats

In my campaign to try to be the next Ward 8 Council leader I have been to over 1000 Democratic voters so far. (Some I've gotten to speak to and some I've just dropped off literature.) It has been such a wonderful opportunity to get to talk to all these people. I've learned some things […]

I don't typically write these kinds of posts simply because throwing myself a pity party is not really my style. "Suck it up, buttercup" is how I live my life. But I guess there might be some worth in recording that I feel this way from time to time. There was a city-wide camp sweep […]

"PLEASE SAGE! MAKE FUN OF COPS AGAIN." A Communist friend of mine recently asked me to get back to the energy where I viscously, brutally and vulgarly verbally attacked racist and murdering cops. So, instead, I thought it would be more fun to attack his sacred cow: COMMUNISM. (Everyone loves when I attack their enemies. […]

Thank You For Passing Issue 10, Akron Ohio

The people of Akron are why I keep fighting this god-awful system that looks to keep the people under their heel while funneling mountains of cash to corporations. You are SO good and SO hopeful and SO resilient. You deserve SO much better than the crumbs you have been given. I love so many things […]
