Sweet and docile,

Meek, humble, and kind:

Beware the day

They change their mind.”

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

Love him

Are those bullets?

The level of trill is strong with this one.

The message and the way he looks into the camera. Wow

The African American male is faced with a society that labels him before he is able to identify his own place within the diaspora. The common view is that Black America exists only in relation to White America; Black men exist only in relation to their white counterparts. This view, along with a “post-racial” multi-media brainwashing, leaves the Black man with little space to define himself. The Black man’s ever-evolving self-identification in America has been his longest battle. Slaves had to imagine themselves as Men in a world where they were told they were animals. Black men had to imagine themselves as citizens in a society that told them they didn’t deserve the same rights. Now we must imagine ourselves as Kings in the face of new Klans and as divine decedents of Gods in a mind of our own, that has been told that our physical reality is the only one that exists.

If a police officer’s job is to uphold and enforce the law — literally their one and only job description — and you knew that almost half of police officers think they’re above the law, what does that say? If half of them admitted it on a survey how many more do you think actually feel this way? 

What if I told you half of doctors don’t care about patient well-being, or half of farmers don’t care about growing crops, or half of our presidents dislike the public?

The law in itself is super problematic and terrible, but if on top of that police officers don’t even adhere to that at the very least, what does that tell you about the justice system? 

hey look what i found in my likes from a year ago
