Be sure to check out this new issue of Recoil magazine. This magazine is a testament to the growing number of people who are aware of the necessity to be prepared for a survival situation and find themselves living off the grid. And this is the type of reading material black people need to be reading. When things get really bad(Martial law,economic crash,natural disaster) black people will get hit the hardest.It is quickly apparent that OFFGRID is brought to you by the same folks as RECOIL, the popular and certainly controversial firearms publication that is big on style.
There are plenty of Survival, Prepper, SHTF,Apocalypse and different forums, books, television shows, and other media out there to plan your big escape from civilization. However, I was excited to see a magazine that could draw mainstream appeal with a clean modern aesthetic with big pretty pictures and plenty of professional content to inform the masses. Just as you would expect from a premier issue of a survival preparation information magazine, OFFGRID Starts with the basics. You will find a wide range of topics covered from all types of gear and food needed, first aid, along with information pieces on simple staples like paracord. They didn’t stop there as they delve into more advanced topics like sourcing alternative fuels and different options for water purification beyond a filter.
This issue covers topics ranging from:
•Bug Out Bags
•Different types of Paracord
•Prepping from your local Wal-Mart, CVS, or convenience store
•First Aid Kit reviews as well as building your own
•Blow Out Kit Reviews
• Weapon Selection
A Buyers Guide was provided for Multitools and they even fit in coverage of firearms to utilize for self defense with contribution provided by Kyle Lamb and Stickman. Overall I was impressed with the depth of information although I thought the $9 price was a little steep. This magazine has some great information that our people can really use.
This is a great video by Angela Freeman. This sista goes into detail about what we can do to prepare for emergencies. She explains that black people are wasting too much time. We can not expect the government to take care of us. We have to do for self. All we have is each other in the end. She is also an accomplished author as well. She has some great advice for all the black women out there on how to prepare their families for any type of disaster. She also has a website you can check out.http://www.message2theblackfam.com/2012/10/survival-conatcts-random-things.html
This is a very uplifting video. Author Mwalimu Baruti and his wife give a rare tour of their Afrikan centered tutorial program. They have working on this school for years. They have been educating black children on their African culture,history and spirituality. This is a real treat to be able to see the inside of their Akoben Institute. I suggest that everyone buy Baruti’s books and donate money to their school. If we say we support these type of school for our children then we need to invest in them. Which means we have to give money. Many of us spend our hard earned money on senseless things anyway. Things that do nothing to promote our liberation or survival. So it’s important that we give to brothers and sisters that are putting in the work. I respect Mwalimu and his wife for not just talking but actually trying to make a difference in the life of our people. In my opinion, I think we need hundreds of schools like this all across America,Canada Brazil,Africa and the UK. Hopefully it will inspire others to do the same. We have to do something to reverse this brainwashing of Eurocentric culture that is nothing but mental pollution for our kids. We are in a fight for our lives. And I think cleansing ourselves of self hatred and replacing it with self love is a great start.
