WARREN BALLENTINE "THE PEOPLE’S ATTORNEY" IS CALLING FOR ALL AFRICAN AMERICANS TO PARTICIPATE IN A NATIONAL BLACKOUT"

WHO: Warren Ballentine "The People’s Attorney" and radio Truth Fighter is calling forNational Blackout throughout America.

WHAT: Warren is calling for a National Blackout that is necessary for African Americans, and is long over due. Especially with all the present injustices that are being allowedand accepted in America right now. From the situation with Mychal Bell and the Jena 6, Genarlow Wilson, Megan Williams, and all of the nooses being hung all of America lately. Until we have federal legislation regarding hate crimes as African Americans we need to band together to show our "Economic Power" by refusing to spend ANY money from fast food restaurants to gas.

WHY: As African Americans we spend an estimated 715 billion dollars a year, and if we were to stop spending for one day that will be 2 billion dollars that will not be in the system. However we ask that you don’t make a mad dash to the stores days prior or the days following. If the stores have a major increase in sales right before or right after the Blackout than we will create the impact we need.
