Garvey worked on a Black Cross EMS service 100 years,

ago, however 2019, we have the technology, and economics , to actually create a National Black Cross, EMS service,
so that our people from state to state wont have to wait for the foot dragging, of
Federal and State Administrations ,
especially in lieu of these times , of Global Warming and at times upredictably , harsh weather,
effecting Black communities, nationally.
The Black Panther Party for Self Defense was working on such a project, before they were decimated , by COINTELPRO


Such a program, would cost no more then 25 cents per month, from 30 million of us !

With an elected Grassroots , rotating committee, repping the 50 states, to be an oversight committee, to make sure funds are spent properly

Red Cross has been international for over 85 years, now , and we have enough money, communications technology and medical and rescue and recovery experts to put a Black Cross, international EMS into effect!
As Global Warming has been effecting all Black communities around the world

Hi Ndugu I know you stated their existence was over 85 years however not to nitpick here but the actual existence of the IRC/ICRC/ARC national and global disaster relief organizations was 183 years. They were incepted in 1836 AD.

I know this from intimate knowledge as I am a 21 year ARC/DAT volunteer communications supervisor and shelter coordinator. Take care.

Actually Brother Ndugu Mr. Garvey did not found BCN/UABCN 100 years ago. Henrietta Vinton Davis founded it in 1920 and it will have been in existence 100 years come next year in 2020. BCN/UABCN was a subsidiary of Mr. Garvey's original dream the infamous UNIA founded by him in 1914 which in 2020 that will have been in existence 105 years come next year in 2020. Excellent informative post, keep up the good work and take care.

Brother Ndugu do you remember these dedicated "People of Color" who were literally written off by society yet they persevered against all odds?

Being a die hard staunch New Yorker who self admittedly knows all things Brooklyn have you interacted with The Black founded Bedford Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corps? Have you invited BSVAC Chief James "Rocky" Robinson a retired FDNY firefighter to possibly incorporate their volunteer EMS unit into your National Black Cross EMS System? I know you already know all about what I am about to present but this is for those of us here who need to be enlightened to your new plan.

On with the show.

You can correct me night and day when I am not here but do you Symbol of America , think that this idea is national and internationally viable and something we collectively need as a people ??? In lieu of global warming???

I have been correcting you not only when you were not here but when you were here too. I don't live to collect props as much as I give them out however I also give you props "And you know it too" because I feel you deserve them unlike you who tries to override Destee members dissenting opinions or statements of facts. What you need to do is start answering Destee members questions. Another thing, what really is your plan?

BTW: Don't go mistaking me for some whole other man.

If I may say something here.
While playing with semantics is one my lest favorite things to do, I think the distinction here is worth noting. There is nothing absolutely nothing we can do in lieu of global warming. In lieu of global warming we can say climate change, we can say the on going anthropocene or the maybe the great dying gets the point across but there is nothing to do in lieu (or in place of) what is, without question, going to get much worse.
