Happening NOW: Thousands of New Yorkers are staging a sit-in in the middle of Times Square chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot” to support the people of #Ferguson. Every 28 hours in the US, a person of color is killed by racist police terror.  Rest in Peace to Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Rekia Boyd, Oscar Grant, Ramarley Graham, Amadou Diallo and too many more.

Omg:’)….

1. Eric Garner executed on July 17th, 2014. Put in illegal choke hold and strangled by the NYPD

2. Pregnant lady gets put in an illegal chokehold by an NYPD officer for “illegally grilling” while her seven year old daughter watches July 27th, 2014

3. NYPD enters wrong house and drags a naked woman across the floor, then pepper sprays her four year old grandson August 2nd, 2014.

4. Man shot and killed by police for holding a toy gun in a Walmart, Dayton, Ohio - August 6th, 2014

5. Unarmed Black teen shot ten times by the Ferguson Police while walking home with his friend from the convenience store - August 9th, 2014

Since July 17th there has been five reported occurrences exemplifying the police and American justice system’s lack of reverence for Black life. These are the five stories that were able to attract at least minimal attention. Who knows what is going on out there covered up (like the Ferguson police is trying to do with Mike Brown’s murder), unrecorded, and unknown. In the past 23 days the police have perpetrated the humiliation, degradation, and murdering of Black dignity,souls, and people. Knowledge is power. Do not rely on mainstream media to give you the full/accurate story. They will always be complicit in the devaluing of Black life because Blackness has been criminalized in America. Please spread these stories and add any more that you know of under the hashtag #badges are the new hoods. We need to start documenting, and spreading information. They will try to silence us as they did to Ramsey Orta, and Alba Lekaj, the people who filmed the NYPD harasing and murdering Eric Garner. But united we can make a difference.  Knowledge is power. Stay woke Black America, Stay woke.

this happened in the past 23 days

Yesterday I got a call from my sister Cheeraz Gormon in St. Louis who was standing with poet Elizabeth Vega. They wanted me to know that a few women had created, on lawns, in the streets, healing stations, a place where the youth could come and scream and cry and be held and heard in love. Mighty work.Dream Hampton

this made me cry.

Days after Michael Brown’s death, Ferguson looks like a war zone

A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.

But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.

Years of tension have reached a boiling point

This shit got me in tears

Rest in Peace, Robin Williams.
July 21st, 1951 - August 11th, 2014

Thank you for bringing joy into my childhood and life with your voice and acting. Thank you for your contagious jokes, your wacky impersonations, and amazing acting. Thank you for making my childhood experience better, and thank you for bringing joy to those even though you battled with your own joy. If only you could have known how much you’ve impacted people. Your life work will live on, and you will never be forgotten. I know I won’t forget you. Thank you for helping me whenever I felt sad and having a film for every mood. Gone, but never forgotten.

Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.

For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.

Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.

People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.

Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”

Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.

SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.

I’m Black
In America…

You tell me.

I’m not sure about anon but I will happily tell you. Black people in America aren’t oppressed. People bend over backwards for black people nowadays. There’s no white man holding you back any more. It’s your shitty ghetto culture and insistence on touting your victimhood that holds you back. Your petty bitterness at the ‘system’ (the same system that you’re too stupid or stubborn to realise is desperately trying to appease you and the rest of your whiny kind) is not doing you any favours. 

The entitled attitude amongst liberal black people is what gives other black people a bad name. Liberal black folk refuse to ever accept responsibility and blame for their actions, always trying to blame it on whitey. Yet you still wonder why certain people resent you? It’s not helping your cause. If you want to improve the living conditions of black people in America, stop acting like little brats moaning about 
imaginary oppression and prove that you’re actually worthy of respect, like every other individual has to do.

…….
Someone address this too if you have the time lol

Lmao. Our “ghetto culture.” I didn’t stomach to read the rest of this. It’s now comical to me to see white people so stupid, so I’m denial, and so gross. There’s entirely too much to unpack and say and it’s not my job to teach corny crackers who troll the internet, trying to “teach” as if they understand anything. But, do you.

Lmao I didn’t read if either.

May I?

Great. I’d like to address this point for point because I’m thorough like that.

 

 “I’m not sure about anon but I will happily tell you” 

-No one asked you.

“Black people in America aren’t oppressed” 

-Then what exactly was the purpose of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, 1871, 1875, 1957, 1960, 1964, 1965, 1968, 1987 and 1990 if Black people, and people of color as a whole, are not oppressed in this country?

 

“People bend over backwards for black people nowadays” 

-If by bend over backwards you mean cut down, attack and spit on the physical, emotional and mental well being of all black people then yeah, they do. 

 

“There’s no white man holding you back any more”

-We all know that systematic oppression is the most effective kind.

“It’s your shitty ghetto culture and insistence on touting your victimhood that holds you back” 

-It is YOUR people that created these ghettos and then barricaded all people of color as well as the poor in. They belong to you.

 

Here’s a really simple take on how you do this:

1) Black people were enslaved for about 245 years in North America. Specifically speaking to America, that’s 245 years that white people were afforded the opportunity to an education, a developed culture and a hand in the economy and 245 years that black people were not.

2) Ghettos are highly concentrated with communities of color and impoverished communities. Class plays a serious hand in the racial divide in America and acknowledging that allows us to assume that most if not all inhabitants of “ghetto” areas barely scratch the ceiling or just make it to lower middle class. The amount of money made by the inhabitants of these areas dictates the taxes/funding that is allocated to the public institutions serving that direct area i.e. schools and hospitals. That means sicker people, poor quality servicing to the communities, a poor standard for education, neighborhood upkeep, and the list goes on and on.

3) This is clearly affecting people of color because these ghettos are predominantly of color.

The shit is inevitable, and still we rise.

 

“Your petty bitterness at the ‘system’ (the same system that you’re too stupid or stubborn to realise is desperately trying to appease you and the rest of your whiny kind) is not doing you any favours”

-The system is something fucking serious dude. The system is not designed to cater to any particular group, it’s a system designed to exploit and flourish without the chance of replenishing. It just happens to be that white people have led the evolution of our economy because of the amount of capital they were able to collect over those 245 years I mentioned earlier. But when you think about it, still, you guys didn’t even really lead that, because it was black labor that fed slavery which was our predominant economic system and as we made the change to being an industrial economy it was many black people, and the poor (btw, Whites are only oppressed when they’re poor, which is why we saw a white population in that labor movement as well), that worked in the factories and still people of color fill tons of service jobs that are taken for granted but are integral to the economies of many communities directly. And it in no way appeases us, it demands capital and that is only a race specific concept because of the history of white and blacks economically in this country, specifically the fact that we were chattel at one point, and then counted as 3/5th of a person at another (for the purpose of tax of course).

 

“The entitled attitude amongst liberal black people is what gives other black people a bad name. Liberal black folk refuse to ever accept responsibility and blame for their actions, always trying to blame it on whitey”

-There is nothing entitled about any black experience because it is just that, a black experience in America, a nation that has historically shown such gross sentiment toward that community in particular; slavery, Jim Crow/black codes, the KKK, the prison industrial complex, blackface, lynching, segregation, the civil war…it’s disgusting that I could continue to reference things.

 

“Yet you still wonder why certain people resent you?”

-No one is wondering, we know why.

 

“It’s not helping your cause. If you want to improve the living conditions of black people in America, stop acting like little brats moaning about imaginary oppression and prove that you’re actually worthy of respect, like every other individual has to do”

-….. Fuck you.

Fucking. Thank you. Somebody said it. 

Everyone needs to see this post.

This is honestly some fuck boy mentality honestly!

I can’t remember the last time I wanted a movie to bomb so badly. Fuck Exodus.
