BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL BEER OOO!

January 1, 2021

Black Lives Matter Weathered Souls Brewing Co. in San Antonio did something big in 2020, crafting an imperial stout called Black is Beautiful and launching a collaborative project of the same name to raise support for police brutality reform and legal defenses for those who’ve been wronged because of racism and prejudice. Black is Beautiful came after the killing of George Floyd, a Houston native, under police apprehension in Minneapolis. Breweries across America joined in on the project, brewing their own version of Black is Beautiful while using the same can art. By late summer, nearly every Houston brewery had made its own Black is Beautiful. What Weathered Souls did was call attention to the structural racism that has existed worldwide for centuries. But also, note that Weathered Souls is a Black-owned brewery. There aren’t many Black-owned breweries across America, and there’s only one (in planning) in Houston. One way to change the world for the better is to deliver liberation from boundaries. Here’s hoping the conversation about Black representation and leadership in brewing increases in 2021.

#ENDSARS- NEW CAMPAIGN O!

October 25, 2020

After #EndSARS, Nigerian Youth Begin New Campaign on Social Media
EveryeveryOct 24, 2020Read original
Nigerian youths might not be backing down on their protest and several demands from the government anytime soon, especially after the the huge backings they gave to the #EndSARS movement.

The youths have since the unfortunate killing of several people in Lagos State continue to mourn them, but might have taken a new course after the massacre.

They have taken over the social media space with a new campaign on asking questions to know the person or persons who issued an order to the men referred to as men of the Nigerian army who shot live bullets at unarmed protesters.

Questions are being asked about how and why the men said to be Nigerian soldiers would leave their barracks and decide to shoot innocent and unarmed protesters. This, in a new twist of events has become a new course for the Nigerian youth who want to know who gave such others.

Some of the Nigerian youth wrote on Twitter;

“E L OO N A M #EndSars@Elozonam1;

Who ordered the shooting of peaceful protesters at Lekki on the 20th of October 2020???”

“David Hundeyin@DavidHundeyin;

Who ordered the shooting of peaceful protesters at Lekki on the 20th of October, 2020??? #EndSARS”

“chimdindu obiaku@DinduObiaku,

WHO ORDERED THE SHOOTING OF PEACEFUL PROTESTERS AT LEKKI ON THE 20TH OF OCTOBER, 2020???”

The Lagos State governor on the other hand had earlier stated that the order for the events leading to the shoot came from quarters beyond the state’s immediate control. Many Nigerians have however wondered who has the constitutional power to order the Nigerian army, if the men responsible for the shooting were truly men of the Nigerian army.
