BlackOut America Movement

BlackOut America Movement
Steadfast Lobbyist Securing
African American Interests


**Capital re-direction mandates, is in part, fuel for engines driving wealth transfer outcomes. When Black people redirect their spending capital to empower Black owned businesses, it automatically denies outside economies and non-Black businesses projectable monetary/asset accumulation.
The "go along to get along" idiom will no longer be a verbal or non-verbal consciousness extended to whites. Benefactors from the sown historic mine fields to Black success in America must confront their travailing fragility when realizing strategically placed impediments complimentary to systemic racial, socioeconomic, and generational inequities placed on the heads of Africa Americans by yesteryear and present-day, white gatekeepers.
Strategies redirecting cash-flow and asset transfer, directly or in-directly, away from people and companies that denigrate, impede, destroy, and demote Black business must be adopted as “rule of thumb” or fundamental. Those newly mandated redirection practices' facilitate safety and economic vibrancy for African American communities.
When executing and realizing capital re-direction strategies, African American money and assets  can no longer be utilized to exact harm on Black interests, Black agendas, and Black people at-large.

We must bring to an end the systemic proclivity of being the constitutional whipping horse for non-Black agendas' and those forces antithetical to Black unification. Unifying is one of America's biggest fear of Black consciousness, because it is the last element warranting a push tipping wealth transfer and social justice reconstruction, which is inevitable.
Power is acknowledged when right-of-way is forced open by a unified body asserting itself. That assertion then enables a mindset released from a mindtrap which commands control of its own destiny as mandated (without asking), by sanctioning capital re-direction  policy and orchestrating corresponding actions forthwith.
"Unity in the Community Now!"

Below are five 100% African American owned and developed social media platforms. The social media platforms currently inhabited in totality by African Americans are formidable, but they only attained that status with the constant content flow from African Americans. The time has arrived to change that dynamic. Vote your interest by registering on these platforms. Make them go viral with your vote. Let your voice be heard and presence felt everyday. These platforms can grow to be an actual capital-redirection for the Black community and realized as a community contributory asset and barometer.
The content generated every second on other non-African American owned platforms translates into free content to be sold to the highest bidder without paying to the content's origin. No matter the sacrifce African Americans and Blacks globally must stop denying African American platforms and allow them support as done with Facebook and Twitter.
The world is watching to see if African Americans are ready, willing, and able to succeed by "Growing Their Own".

It's Time to Grow Our Own

It's time to grow our own. Some will ask exactly what does that mean? Allow me to explain. It's time to grow Black business in every sector including but not limited to: Brands, farmers, grocers, clothing, manufacturing, real estate, hospitals, risk management, business services, automotive, construction, brewers, distillers, digital platforms, financial institutions, food, politics, and every other product and service Black people consume.

The majority populous want Blacks to defend, uphold, and prosper a system we were held back and not allowed participation in its design. The current, inherit design was constructed to keep Black people as a permanent economic and social utility. This current economic design capitalizes off a disparaging wealth-gap that is centuries old. The present-day mindsets of non-Blacks want to continue restraining Black economic growth at its present rate. Now is the time to grow our own.

Black Ownership is Key. Black business ownership and property acquisition is key to influence and inclusive power sharing of America with the African-American community. Centuries of unwarranted disregard and disrespect have been repeated all the while devaluing accomplishments and patriotic contributions awarded America through the mental, spiritual, moral, and physical prowess of the Black American collective.

Justice for the murder of Breonna Taylor continues to be illusive. Ms. Taylor tragically lost her life while asleep in her bedroom. The city of Louisville, the birth place of Muhammad Ali, still has not come to grips with the true meaning of justice for all, with the aid and abetting help of the Attorney General of Kentucky, Daniel Cameron.
BlackOut America Movement has now found it necessary to task America with sending a message to the city Louisville and the state of Kentucky by restricting spending and redirecting capital only to African American businesses. The actions of these cops should further galvanize Blacks resolve to unite and become as one force to be reckoned.
Police funding in Louisville should now be audited for redistribution to areas that would be more efficient in serving justice to all. African American voters in Kentucky are experiencing first hand how justice is meted out to innocent Black citizens.


Black people have again been forced into a corner with the purging of life from George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless other victims of rampant police brutality and other horrendous acts by police with no accountable consequences. Innerkwest™ has designated the B.O.M.B (Blackout Movement Blast) as a call to action, calling for spending restraints by African-Americans to only spend dollars at genuine black owned businesses.💰
We have seen movements in the past producing marginal results at best.
The irrefutable urgency of oppressive forces perpetual offenses demands immediate responses via social media and target specific platforms such as InnerKwest™ to continue re-enforcing all sanctioned call-to-action (CTA) initiatives and messaging. 
The inhabitants of the White House have made clear their positions as it relates to African-Americans with their insults, innuendos, actions, appointments, policies, and military deployments into our urban cores.
The candidate opposing the present POTUS is Joe Biden. While Biden is not the preferred nominee, comparatively Joe Biden is better suited for the job than the present occupant of the executive branch.
We must forge forward with uncompromising unity, staunch determination, and strategic creativity.

Black Barrel is a look at Black gun ownership and militia activity in America. When coronavirus lockdowns spread nationwide in March, millions of Americans flocked to their local grocery stores and wholesale markets to stock up for what would become months stuck at home. Black Americans did the same, but some had one addendum to their shopping list: a firearm.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been growing interest among African Americans in arming themselves, as evidenced by increased membership in Black gun owner organizations.
The rush to purchase weapons and ammunition is not unique to one race — more Americans across the board are arming themselves this year, including those who are not legally eligible. However, new Black gun owners see firearms as a tool of both empowerment and self-defense.

Philip Smith, president of the National African American Gun Owners’ Association, said his organization’s annual membership has increased by much as 2,000 new members per day — a figure he used to see annually. His organization has grown to more than 30,000 members this year and has an online following of nearly 90,000 people.InnerKwest®

"Hey, Portland; OR, Minneapolis; MN, Louisville; KY, Brunswick; GA 
Kenosha; Wis; Lafayette; La, Tel Aviv; IL," "What's Up Doc?"

February 2021 - This is not a test and the American establishment is watching. What they see right now does not bode well with their historical agenda of maintaining system line items put in place that bind Blacks in a pre-determined position. There are calls from the top of local, state, and federal government to distract from actions that bring a halt to the perpetual entrapment that essentially place Blacks as economic utilitarian. In other words, massive/passive economic slaves. No matter your earnings, whether 6 figures up or down you are still constitutionally Three-Fifths until proven otherwise.

“The endemic nature of white supremacy rallies against the progression to a contemporary society with ageless principles. Instead they expend energy and resource promulgating an "ethnostate" ideological fantasy.
They are still woefully fighting the lost of the American Civil War”.
– James C. Frasure III CEO AMIBC

True freedom has a cost, which many are not willing to pay, but the #BlackOutAmeicaMovement continues to prove, Black Lives Matter.

💡As a community, all African Americans must be aware who we support and why we support any and all businesses not part of the community. Our dollars often trickle down to companies and entities that work against our interest, our right to life, liberty, safety, and the pursuit of happiness.
We demand everyone must be secure to exercise their inalienable right to breathe and thrive from this day forward! 🗽

The door is open and the time is now for accountability and ownership of platforms that shape, direct, and influence the lives of African-Americans and the Black global community. WittYou will aid and facilitate relentless power to the black community, but this time with undeniable disruption and intent for self-determination. We now have fresh alternatives to legacy platforms to which we can embrace and build social media digital platform equity. Won’t you help us build WittYou, Khaunda, and Kwyknote? Add WittYou and Kwyknote to your social media table. This is just the beginning. Upcoming diverse platforms will be released in the coming weeks from the developers of WittYou®.


WittYou®, Kwyknote™ and Khaunda was created out of necessity for African-Americans, the Black Global Community, and those that celebrate the culture, to have ownership in viable social media platforms. No longer acceptable is the notion of relying on entities that don’t have an organic cultural awareness and allegiance to the plight of Blacks. Furthermore, Blacks societal relevance have long been overlooked and taken for granted. When the internet was first introduced, many predicted the digital age would level the playing field, but the same biased attitudes continue to prevail throughout Silicon valleys' influence on the total digital spectrum.
WittYou™ Technologies Inc, is committed to help in the rebuilding of Black Wall Streets across America and globally. Previously and also today, violence is the method used to suppress Black progress. The WittYou® digital platforms cannot be burned down. More information detailing our resolve to the rebirth of Black Wall Street and the vital role of which WittYou™, Kwyknote™ and Khaunda can give energy and stability is forthcoming.

African American spending power demands that marketers show more love and support for black culture. African Americans want more for themselves and from corporate America, and they express it with their dollars as they move through the consumer journey, from brand awareness to purchase, as revealed today in Nielsen’s 2019 Diverse Intelligence Series (DIS) Report on African Americans.

It’s in the Bag: Black Consumers’ Path to Purchase
For Black consumers, who command $1.3 trillion in annual buying power, much of product discovery takes place on mobile devices. That doesn’t mean, however, that they tune out traditional channels. After all, Black consumers love all forms of media, and they spend more time than the total population with media on traditional platforms like TV and radio. The key to engaging with Black consumers is reaching them as they research and discover the products they need. So how do Black consumers arrive at their purchase decisions? More than other consumers, family and culture are the primary purchase influencers among Black consumers. SOURCE: NIELSEN GLOBAL

Blackout Movement Blast

The B.O.M.B acronym stands for Blackout Movement Blast. This approach is a targeted method of defining when, where, and how MONEY WILL BE WITHHELD FROM EXCHANGING HANDS OTHER THAN BUSINESSES OF COLOR OR BLACK BUSINESS.
In recognition of  the "Blackout Day movement", #BlackOutAmericaMovement by InnerKwest℠ is asking all people of color to withhold their money from non-black businesses and only spend dollars at black businesses when possible in perpetuity. We will continue to post other BlackOut movements from around the country and globe as they develop or formally  submitted .James Frasure's InnerKwest®

DISCLAIMER: #BlackOutAmericaMovement activities do not condone any type of violence or expressions of violence as practiced by the police, KKK, white-nationalist, and white lone-wolf domestic terrorists or international extremists.InnerKwest®

Beware of companies purporting to be black owned. The #BlackOutAmericaMovement defines black ownership as the company having a Black chairman and over75% Black upper management. Franchisees must fully reflect the Black owned company’s standards and corporate culture. Black fronts will be outed by #BlackOutAmericaMovement . We will investigate suspected Black fronts through all channels available through Secretaries Of State and tools to authenticate ownership.
We won’t allow for keywords such as minority, people of color, or any other strategic word that deviates from the main focus which is Black or African American. Subverts have started attempting to counter efforts that enables true independence from being controlled by legacy entities and institutions. African Americans are at a pivotal point in time, disrupting the status quo from their traditional wealth generators (Blacks).
Again, #BlackOutAmericaMovement is a “Movement”, not a “MOMENT”. Much is on the horizon in this movement. Movement initiative announcements are forth coming.

Black Lives Matter



“‘Black Lives Matter’ doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter. Black lives matter speaks to racism and the disproportionate risk that Black people face in our law enforcement and the justice system,” - Jeff Bezos Amazon CEO

"A collective paradigm mindset must change which frees us from an economic slave standpoint. We must unite our collective will to support our own business interests. Let's start this shift by becoming market drivers and not being market driven." -James Frasure AMIBC CEO

Boycott for Black Lives

Boycott for Black Lives: People plan to stop spending in companies that don’t support BLM.

As Juneteenth approaches, some Americans are commemorating the day by flexing the power of the dollar.

On June 19, advocates of Black Lives Matter plan to support the namesake civil rights movement by not spending money with companies that aren’t aligned with the movement or have remained silent. Some efforts include boycotting celebrities and politicians who’ve been vocal in opposition to the movement.


Remain cognizant of outside elements aka interlopers, of which embed themselves into protests with skewed agendas such as the Antifa  group/movement.
Antifa is an anti-fascist political movement in the United States comprising a diverse array of autonomous groups that aim to achieve their objectives through the use of both non-violent and violent action rather than through policy reform. Antifa was at the Minneapolis protest with an aggressive agenda, which distracted from the essence of the protest.  Antifa capitalizes on crowd size and the emotional intensity expended on the issues.

On the extreme right is the opposition to African American protests and issues known as the Boogaloo Movement. The Boogaloo  movement adherents to which are often referred to as Boogaloo boys or boogaloo bois. They are a loosely organized American far-right extremist movement. Participants generally identify as a libertarian citizen-militia, and say they are preparing for a second American Civil War, which they call the "boogaloo".

African-Americans have been put in a complex state of being therefore the community must change its mindset in order for such a movement to be effective and regarded as force to be reckoned.

The change of mindset must replicate our Jewish neighbors. Jews are notorious for supporting their causes exclusively. That is the power of unity. This was established with Jews upon their arrival to New York after the Holocaust in NAZI occupied German. If a Jew didn't own it or sell it, no matter what it was Jews did not buy it.

Because of the history of African-American denial of freedom and the mental posture passed down from slavery, blacks wanted any and everything whether they could afford it or not. There were many Cadillacs parked in front of government sponsored housing throughout the U.S. Blacks would buy and continue to buy and promote products that have little value to the community. Too many blacks want the purported best of everything, while investing little to the wealth transfer to future generations. Blacks unfortunately as a community have little equity in substantial projects and products by design of the system.

Where the rubber meets the road is when blacks realize the NFL works against their best interest. The NFL supports ideologies that not only take away from the black community, but support by proxy the destruction of African-American life. The NFL contracts 1,696 players of which 68% is black. In reality there are in excess of 40M blacks in America. Whether fans like it or not, there are NFL owners which are staunch supporters of Donald J. Trump. Many black football fans find themselves in a catch 22. They support an entity that contributes to their demise. Colin Kaepernick took a knee and was scandalized, but then so did George Floyd's killer, Derek Chauvin. Taking a knee at that moment took new meaning, yet still as of June 2020 there are some that still voice unequivocal comparisons, because of their deep-rooted hatred for African-Americans and challenges to white supremacist disjointed impositions.

The NFL is just one in many capital outlay needing to be re-thought from a community perspective. Blacks need to redefine what they consider whose an elitist and why the recognition. Entertainment and sports has our children misappropriating priorities when career path selections are under review. Our community's children need examples of diverse success across the total spectrum of careers the world has to offer.

The United States Of America is woefully divided and so is the African-American community to a certain extent. This question still remains for black people to answer: What is in your best interest and are you willing to act with remedies that reflect the needs of the community?James Frasure's InnerKwest®

The Policing History

Police departments patrol people of color rather than "protect and serve". Too many black people no matter their station in life are treated with disregard and disrespect by too many officers. Prime example is how a state several black senators and a black mayor were pepper sprayed in the latest riots responding to the modern-day lynching of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
"The endemic nature of white supremacy rallies against the progression to a contemporary society with ageless principles. Instead they expend energy promulgating an ethnostate ideology. They are still fighting the lost cause of the civil war". - James Frasure

The backdrop of this section reveals the Portland, Oregon July 2020 protest; where Trump ordered secret police surfaces to detain and kidnap protesters at the rebuke of the Oregon governor and mayor of Portland. 


The logic of the slave patrol: the fantasy of black predatory violence and the use of force by the police.
Similar to England, Colonial America experienced an increase in population in major cities during the 1700.

Some of these cities began to see an influx of immigrant groups moving in from various countries
(including Germany, Ireland, Italy, and several Scandinavian countries), which directly contributed to the
rapid increase in population. The growth in population also created an increase in social disorder and

The sources of social tension varied across different regions of Colonial America; however, the introduction of new racial and ethnic groups was identified as a common source of discord. Racial and ethnic
conflict was a problem across Colonial America, including both the northern and southern regions of the country.

Since the watch groups could no longer cope with this change in the social climate, more formalized means of policing began to take shape. Most of the historical literature describing the early development of policing in Colonial America focuses specifically on the northern regions of the country while neglecting events that took place in the southern region—specifically, the creation of slave patrols in the South.

Slave patrols first emerged in South Carolina in the early 1700s, but historical documents also identify the existence of slave patrols in most other parts of the southern region (refer to the Reichel article
included at the end of this section). Samuel Walker identified slave patrols as the first publicly funded police agencies in the American South. Slave patrols (or “paddyrollers”) were created to manage the racebased conflict occurring in the southern region of Colonial America; these patrols were created with the specific intent of maintaining control over slave populations.

Interestingly, slave patrols would later extend their responsibilities to include control over White indentured servants. Salley Hadden identified three principal duties placed on slave patrols in the South during this time, including searches of slave lodges, keeping slaves off of roadways, and disassembling meetings organized by groups of slaves.

The History of the Police patrols were known for their high level of brutality and ruthlessness as they maintained control over the slave population. The members of slave patrols were usually White males (occasionally a few women) from every echelon in the social strata, ranging from very poor individuals to plantation owners that wanted to ensure control over their slaves.

Slave patrols remained in place during the Civil War and were not completely disbanded after slavery ended. During early Reconstruction, several groups merged with what was formerly known as slave patrols to maintain control over African American citizens. Groups such as the federal military, the state militia, and the Ku Klux Klan took over the responsibilities of earlier slave patrols and were known to be even more violent than their predecessors.

Over time, these groups began to resemble and operate similar to some of the newly established police departments in the United States. In fact, David Barlow and Melissa Barlow noted that “by 1837, the Charleston Police Department had 100 officers and the primary function of this organization was slave patrol . . . these officers regulated the movements of slaves and free blacks, checking documents, enforcing slave codes, guarding against slave revolts and catching runaway slaves.”

Scholars and historians assert that the transition from slave patrols to publicly funded police agencies was
seamless in the southern region of the United States.James Frasure's InnerKwest®

October 2020 Conspiracy Theories or not, there has always been a concerted effort to limit the lifespan and quality of life for the African-American, with focus on the Black male. Restraints and rules to keep the Black family fragmented are in full bloom. This present administration is not ashamed to use executive orders to further constrain Black people to predestined social and economic elevations in American society. A deluge of "orders" are aimed at clearing the path for racist practices to be re-instituted in the federal government and the companies doing business with the government.
(1)Trump announced efforts to promote "patriotic education" and railed against students learning about systemic racism.
(2) Trump said on Twitter on Tuesday (9-22-2020) that he had expanded the ban on "efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies" to contractors doing business with the federal government and those receiving grant funds.
(3) The race to appoint a replacement to the Supreme Court is hypocrisy at its finest.
The stark reality Black people continue to face is our deficiencies in trusting one another and keeping our capital resources within the confines of our communities.
There are a token few that have been allowed to prosper, sometimes at the demise of the Black community, but if we don't come together and unite NOW, the price the Black community will pay for divisiveness and self-hate will be monumental for decades to come. - James Frasure III - Staff Contributor
