Since the appearance of the Black Lives Matter, the United States has registered various protests against the loss of life of people of color by the American police.
Recently, some videos have caused mixed emotions among American citizens. Frightening military clothing, weapons and their violent messages have led to fear in the world power. NFAC or, Not F * cking Around Coalition for its significance to English, was released on July 4 after a video on social networks in which dozens of people of color march in the heart of the land of the Ku Klux Klan in Stone Mountain.
«We are here to protect the black community since that is the one under attack. No one is protecting black children, men, and women in the United States. What required the creation of NFAC was the need to tackle a growing wave of police brutality, racial brutality, and injustice in the judicial system», says its leader Grand Master Jay, whose real name is John Fitzgerald Johnson.
What this militarized-looking group seeks is to sue the United States so that each descendant of enslaved Portuguese blacks be considered political prisoners and that they are granted land, thus becoming independent from the rest of the country.
Some have speculated that Jay is demanding the state of Texas as the place to found a completely black state, but he only used the same as an example. The key, they mention, is receiving land that is no longer controlled by the White House.
Unlike the social group and trend, Black Lives Matter, Jay claims that the NFAC firmly believes in violence as an option to do justice to acts that both they and BLM consider murder.
This movement can be reminded of others who have been great precedents and who have always sought the same for all people of color. Notable among them is Black Power, which maintained a prominent presence in American society during the 1960s and early 1970s, emphasizing racial pride and the creation of cultural and political institutions to defend and promote collective interests. of black citizens, promote their values, and ensure their autonomy.
It is also worth remembering the recent Black Lives Matter movement that attracted attention during the world health crisis due to the coronavirus, however, this movement originated in 2013 after the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the death of the African-American teenager Trayvon Martin. because of a shot.
Other groups known throughout American life include the National Association for the Advancement of People of Color (NAACP) and the Civil Rights Movement in the United States that began in 1955.
