Black women preppers are highly preferred, but I’m open to anyone who is willing to talk.

You must be willing to have your photograph taken as well. I am fascinated by the culture and want to give black preppers a platform so as to educate others.

Comment on Knife Clipped to the Pocket, Don’t Do This by Ken Strauther https://www.blackprepper.com/knife-clipped-to-the-pocket-dont-do-this/#comment-4426 Thu, 13 Sep 2018 19:08:45 +0000 http://www.blackprepper.com/?p=692#comment-4426 Great info. I carry a similar folding knife but it is clipped to my belt instead of my pocket. It’s right next to my CCW. I also sometimes carry a larger knife, also clipped to my belt. Fortunately I live in Texas where the knife laws have been amended such that there are no length restrictions. But I agree, we have to be extra cautious about how we handle those encounters with law enforcement so that we have a better chance of surviving the encounter.

BTW, love this site. Extremely critical information for our people.

I live in South Florida and would like to learn more about being prepared for any unforeseen circustance that might arise. Also I believe we as a people need to do some tactical / survivalist training to be able to protect our families and loved ones when the SHTF.

I am white, urban, left-of center, and very interested in prepping but disgusted by the right-wing, racist elements in a lot of the prepper communities and blogs out there. I’m tired of feeling like those people ‘own’ prepping-there needs to be a counterweight. Keep it up.

Comment on Shelter In Place and Getting Out Are The Only 2 Things We Should Prepare For by Kay https://www.blackprepper.com/shelter-in-place-and-get-out/#comment-4371 Wed, 31 May 2017 06:34:44 +0000 http://www.blackprepper.com/?p=653#comment-4371 Hmmmmm. Most of my scenarios involve staying put, to be honest. I think it is easier and more practical. Like you said, one can’t carry everything when one needs to get out. I also think in an urban environment, people should be more focused on strengthening bonds with their neighbors and such, instead of trying to run and hide in the hills and defend their one little cabin against the marauders they’re sure are coming. I think too many people have this kind of mindset because of the American romanticism of the rugged individual und blah blah blah. The reality is, going it alone is tough and draining as hell.
Also important is if you’re getting out, have a clear destination. And be very wary of places other entities are steering you towards (remember the Superdome in Katrina, anyone?)!
Preparation takes time and money. Most of us don’t have those in spades, but we can get it done a little at a time. Partial prep is better than no prep IMO, and we can go a lot farther by helping each other than by isolating and insulating ourselves.
