    Since 1969 and the first Black Solidarity day, the Monday before election day,

    a day designated for Black folks to nationally boycott all purchases except from Black owned businesses, to call in sick or take a vacation day and to stay home from school, and engage in a day of absence, in protest of our collective mistreatment and abuse,

    Less and less since 2 things

    the death of Black media, in the late 90s, and the ascendency of Hip Hop kultcha, which has created a paradigm that looks at unity as though it could cause cancer, and collective focus as though it could cause AIDS!
