2018 SBPM Pizzagate Lecture (Baltimore) @ Pleasant Hope Baptist Church
Feb 28 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Straight Black Pride Movement (SBPM) DC Chapter is sponsoring the most important conversation for Black people of our time. The Irritated Genie of Soufeese will be speaking about the merger of the (2) most profitable illegal/immoral businesses in the world today, 1. Child-sex Trafficking & 2. Illegal Organ Trafficking.

These (2) businesses have merged to create the greatest threat to Afrikan survival in the history of the world. And in the mind of the homophile predators who run these industries, defenseless Black children are the sex toys with the organs that they most desire.

This lecture will show us who is behind this perverted assault on Black children and provide practical solutions for Black people to protect our children and our Race from the most horrifying future we can imagine.

We look forward to seeing you there
