I started writing on black supremacism in the summer of 1989, for the first issue of my magazine, A Different Drummer, which my printer finally delivered in April, 1990.
That spring, while peddling issue #1, and selling advertising over the phone and in person for issue #2, working as a social worker, and writing freelance newspaper articles, I dove into a research project on race, which issued in a 30,000-word manuscript, which I published in two parts in my next two issues, as “A Black Cultural Revolution.”
I then ran out of money, both for ADD and my apartment, and spent three years doubling up with my mom, sleeping on an army cot in the middle of her studio apartment.
However, I have always come back to these topics, whether it has been for daily newspapers, magazines, webzines or blogs.
Although my guerilla journalism editors pay me for my work (more than I ever earned from “straight” newspaper and magazine editors), it is not nearly enough to support my work or my family. Indeed, I have had periods in which I had more revenue from my generous blog readers than from editors.
A friend once asked me something that many of you surely wonder about: Why don’t I work at a regular job, and do this work on the side? The answer is that it’s impossible to work at this level of quantity and quality, while working at an unrelated, full-time job.
Please make more of the generous donations that have kept me going for lo these many years. Thanks, in advance.
Here are some of the black supremacists and race men whom I’ve exposed, over the years.
