Hi, I'm Bobby London, a writer and journalist in Los Angeles. I self-publish most of my writing but I've also written for or had my work republished by outlets such as ForHarriet, CounterPunch, Truth Out, It's Going Down, and Infoshop . I'm also a part of a media collective called On Resistance, with a weekly radio show on 90.7 KPFK (you can listen to all our past shows here).

At this moment where the narrative of "where we should go from here?" will definitely be to signal us back into the democratic party, and maintaining the status quo, it is important that voices like mine are able to continue to write, and find financial support . While I'm trying to make a living off my work, the prospects are slim for a black woman whose politics push against the white liberal consensus of many publishing outlets. Although it may appear that we are seeing more "diversity" in the media, it is still must fit a certain criteria, one that either, upholds liberalism, or is willing to whitesplain their struggle.

As a writer whose perspective takes years for most media outlets to catch up to, I've found that most of my writing is two years too early, for most media outlets to be able to digest.

My goals for 2017 is finally have time to focus on the projects that I've wanted to attempt but have not been able to due to funding:
  • Create my own publication which pays it's creators and contributors
  • Create video segments 
  • Make my article The Anti-Bluprint a book that further details the topics and tactics I discuss in my piece. 
I've created this Patreon to try and find a way to fund my work that doesn't compromise my principles.

If you appreciate my work and would like to see more of it, please consider signing up as my supporter on Patreon to make a monthly donation to support my writing. If you're struggling in capitalism like me, I don't want your money, and your shares are supportive enough. But, if you do have disposable income, and are looking to offer financial support, than that would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you.
