We are all affected by it advertising, propaganda, programming, social engineering, psychological operations, or whatever other term could be applied. The act of a force outside of your mind trying to convince you to do something. In the second episode of this series we take a look at the early, early days of advertising...before cars took people to stores miles from their house. Back in this time period, the merits of a consumer good or service were believed to be enough to sell the item. At the turn of the century (1900) we were still considered 'citizens' by those in positions of power (government and industry), but this was all about to change. After the success of the Committee on Public Information, a WWI organization in charge of swaying public opinion to support the war, the same techniques used to sell the war to the citizens of the US were adapted by big business to more effectively sell their goods and services. Edward Burnays was a member of the CPI and the leading proponent of switching the citizenry into consumers in the post WWI years. In the mid 1920's, he successfully combined the philosophy of Wilfred Trotter (and his idea of "herd instinct") with the writings of his uncle, Sigmund Freud. The successful techniques pioneered by Burnays are still being used to sell us consumer goods today; press release, celebrity endorsement, testimonials, sex, product placement and the idea that buying a consumer good that we don't need will fill that empty hole in our lives.

“So Earlier today at the Qilombo Oakland upon returning from the store two comrades had noticed the pigs had someone pulled over across the street. So about 5 of us squad up whip out our phones and go observe. The sista driving was with her son, no older than 13 and an infant baby in the backseat. The pigs told her her license was suspended and even though she only lived six blocks away they couldn’t follow her home, she had to find someone with a license to drive the car.

She pleads with him to just follow her home, she needs to get her baby home. The obviously refuse and threaten to impound the car. The pigs ask her, with a smirk on his face, if any of her friends here (gesturing towards us who are cop-watching) would drive for her (knowing that we were copwatching and probably didn’t know her personally). One of the sista’s copwatching with us sees the pigs playing their classic psychological game of “Blame the copwatchers” routine tells the sista “We just here to make sure you good sista.” She nods and says “thank you”.

I then tell her “Excuse me sista. I know you don’t know me but my name is Shango and I volunteer at this community center right here across the street. You can go inside and ask any random person about me and they probably vouch for me as a decent guy. I just want you to know I have my license and I can give you a ride home and catch the bus back… I just wanted to let you know if you feel comfortable with that.” The pigs smirk turns to a scowl. lol I love when that happens BTW.

She says thank you and tuns back towards the pigs who is getting her signature for a ticket. The pigs ask her again if she knows anyone who can come pick up the car. She turns back to me and says “what was you saying again brotha?” I tell her again, and she asks the sista with me if she volunteers there to, which she responds “yes”. She thinks about it for a little while and says “ok, thank you”.

After giving me a monologue about all the things wrong with her car that I NEEDED to know before driving her six blocks, lol, she tells me on the way to her spot that the pigs were trying to convince her we were only making things worse by standing there when we were copwatching. She was like “why, they didn’t pull me over, u did. they wasn’t fina leave me and my baby stranded, u were.”

She saw clearly that the pigs were there to make her families life hard and that we were there trying to help.

She then asks me the address and the hours of the Qilombo and tells me they will be at the Malcolm X event on Saturday.

I LOVE the people. It ain’t the big spectacular rallies, actions, demonstrations and events that inspire me as much as the day to day little things that come from serving the people that keep me going.”
