Police Brutality Survival Camp: Using the Game of Chess to Teach Kids How to Stay Alive

By Dana C. Ayres

The game of life is like chess, you have to anticipate what’s coming from your opponent before you make a move in the direction towards victory.  This is the thinking of Orrin Hudson, chess champion and founder of the Atlanta-based non-profit organization, Be Someone. Hudson is currently conducting an online fundraising campaign to bring his “Police Brutality Survival” workshops to Baltimore, Ferguson, Atlanta, and potentially other cities, according to blacknews.com.

Hudson will use his personal testimony as a former gang member to reach out to teens and to educate them about proper dealings with law enforcement. “The camp will tackle the very delicate issue of police brutality survival, the do’s and don’ts of safe police/citizen interaction, critical thinking to forecast the consequences of actions, and so much more,” says Hudson. The camp will be free to the public and is open to teens and their parents.  It will kick off Saturday, May 30th in Lithonia, Georgia.

Hudson believes he can provide a unique perspective that most pundits and the well-intended often miss, and that is providing possible solutions to the problem of rampant and unchecked police brutality in the Black community.  He will try to represent the viewpoints of the youth along with providing the viewpoint of the officers they may encounter.  Once the young people have a clear understanding of what lies ahead, they can make moves according to this newly acquired knowledge.  Just like the game of chess, the opponent’s position has to be understood in order for their moves to be anticipated in a given situation.  However, the real question still remains as to the relevance of such a program in these hostile times.  Quite frankly, it has been relevant for decades here in America.

It is crucial for any oppressed peoples to learn to survive as best they can within in a system of oppression.  It serves as a strategic function, as well, when the so-called, violent and “thuggish” Black youth are taught to carefully co-exist with others within the confines of what is considered to be lawful here in America.  What excuses will the mayors, city officials, law enforcement, and media pundits have then when another law-abiding, Black teenager winds up hurt or worse at the hands of police officers?

Check mate…

Apathy would be truly tragic, but if you want to help Black youth, somewhere, have a fighting chance in these times, you can start by making a donation to a great cause:

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!|
