DARREN SEALS: Who is saying his name? Where is his trending #hashtag
Except for a few mentions, was he trending? Was his family featured on CNN and other news outlets?
Two chilling tweets, one only five days before his murder, may leave a clue as to why his death was NOT big news.
If you check his social accounts, there are a trail of crumbs to follow for any investigative agency interested in solving his murder.
Although at the time of his death, Darren was NOT a fan of the Black Live Matter Movement (BLM)(as we know it) — he was very much about Black Lives Mattering. He lived and, apparently, died for this cause.
He disassociated himself with the current BLM and it is utterly fascinating to learn WHY he (and his comrade, Nyota Uhura) did so.
Darren and Nyota said that the original organic movement in Ferguson, after Mike Brown’s death, was Hands Up Don’t Shoot (HUDS). Darren and Nyota, both, admit to initially joining forces with persons who “came into” Ferguson, shortly after Mike Brown’s death.
They describe these people as non-Ferguson residents from the newly formed activist group Black Live Matter. They report they initially sought to join forces, in good faith, thinking BLM and HUDS had the same objective.
According to Darren and Nyota, because of the brand popularity and what they later learned to be robust funding from liberal political elites to BLM, BLM suddenly eclipsed the organic movement Ferguson natives began. It was soon confirmed to Darren & Nyota that the two movement’s agendas were not the same.
And, this is when Darren began his personal campaign to expose, bluntly, what he was discovering on his social media accounts.
Paper trails on these Twitter streets confirm there was even an altercation between Darren and one of BLM’s front men, Deray Mckesson. It is reported Darren slapped Deray.
You can read a Google cached article featuring a series of tweet exchanges between the BLM women leaders and Darren about this smacking event.
Theses ladies, apparently, stepped in to defend their fellow comrade, Deray. The words spoken by these ladies seemed to further strengthen Darren’s contention that the BLM was more aligned with a feminist and LBGT agenda than one favoring black men and the black family.
Darren had several Facebook pages, all teeming with clues ripe for producers of the First 48. Two personal pages and one called St. Louis Hip Hop are where a lot of his grievances against Black Lives Matter Movement are filed.
This page is now run by Darren’s comrade — Nyota Uhura. She has essentially said she is taking the baton to finish the race to expose BLM and the power elites that fund and direct them —in honor of Darren’s legacy.
She is, now, regularly updating the St. Louis Hip Hop site as well as her own personal FB page with information and commentary on current events — especially where it relates to the message she and Darren want to make the black community aware of about BLM.
She is boldly pulling no punches, taking names, and naming them.
THIS IS THE VIDEO Darren mentioned in the tweet clipped above featuring his comrade, Nyota. She is being interviewed and goes into great detail about their grievances and experiences with BLM.
A quick Google search will reveal many other people on social media commenting and sharing this same story of BLM corruption, but from different angles and seasoned with their individual worldviews, of course.
While I don’t share Darren or Nyota’s worldview (or most of the people commenting about his death) nor do I draw the same conclusions they and many black people, typically, draw about the core reasons Black Americans face the challenges we do, I do think they are dead on to something relative to them sniffing out and making the connect between the “non-profit” industrial complex, political power elites, and the exploitation of black misery and death in order to strengthen that political power.
I think they are dead on in calling out the liberal exploitation of black misery and our racial sensitivities and how movements, like the popular Black Lives Matter, NAACP, and the like, appear to be just an asset on the political balance sheet of those power elites.
Regardless of what I think, I’m stunned that his death was only a perfunctory blip in the news cycle.
I’m stunned that few made much of his death (how he died was horrifically diabolical) considering he was an original Ferguson activist and one who went hard for his community .
He was growing in influence because of how hard he went and off the strength of him being an original to Ferguson — there from the beginning.
His account of events and his experience with the BLM brand made him credible to a lot of his followers by virtue of his proximity to all the key people and events.
His suspicious death strongly suggest to many, on the outside looking in, that somebody didn’t want him to continue to share this account.
And the million dollar question is — in light of his loud voice against the oppression of others, who is saying his name? Where is his trending #hashtag?
Why isn’t his name memorialized on those cool afro memes, I’ve seen lately, with other names who died violently?
Who is making much of his death? Who is protesting on his behalf as he protested for others? He stood bold and tall for Ferguson. Is Ferguson standing bold and tall for him? And if Ferguson is honoring him, no mainstream news media is there to share it with the world— like they were there day and night during the Mike Brown case.
Should Black Americans be asking why?
That said, one news outlet did cover the story — briefly. News One anchor, Roland Martin, attempted a short piece on Darren’s murder right after it occurred interviewing Ferguson natives who were activist comrades and personal friends of Darren.
On this broadcast, Darren’s friends suggested a theory that’s burning the streets and that is Darren’s death was the result of an assassination order from some high place as a consequence of him calling out the political elite’s funding of BLM.
The assumption of this theory is because the black vote remains pivotal to the election of most liberal candidates in America, Darren’s narrative exposing BLM as a farce would be bad publicity that would surely unnerve blacks who would, undoubtedly, express their anger at the ballot box.
Although, Darren was NOT Republican, it is reported that Darren influenced Ferguson voters to vote Republican in some local city elections to show the black community’s political power and to send a message to the Democrats that did not respond to community grievances born out of the Ferguson uprising.
Note that Darren voting Republican, at that time, appeared to be only a “tactical” move to prove a point. He is on record being an equal opportunity critic of both Trump and Clinton. If he were still with us, it is doubtful he would be voting for either of them — if at all.
Darren was a GM assembly line worker by day and a rapper (or rap group manager or both) by night. He was on the come up. Just weeks before his death, he took a meeting with Roc Nation executives. He also seemed to be a loving individual as evidenced by how he talked of his mother, his little brother (in a Facebook live video), pics, and comments on his social accounts.
Although, the Black Lives Matter leaders, he had beef with, took to social media to offer express sympathies and condolences after news of his death broke, they did not mention his name or his work.
No hashtag for Darren from Black Lives Matter.
How many followers of BLM on social media (assuming they’d be alerted to the latest black injustices worldwide) even knew who Darren was? How many even know he’s dead? They didn’t mention his name.
Should we wonder why?
What was Darren on to?
#RIP to all black men and women whose deaths are and have been exploited in recent years to strengthen political power elites. I’m so sorry…(tears)
