The New Jim Crow

1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 75% of those residents are Black

2. The Ferguson police department has around 530 cops —less than 5 of them are Black

3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson

4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime

5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color

6. Five examples: The Militarization of the police

7. It’s deeply Institutional: Police view Black Children As Less Innocent

8. So please - don’t get it twisted

Janelle Monae tweeted some of her lyrics earlier today and they were relevant as FUCK (8/14/14)

I’ve been evangelizing for Janelle and Killer Mike for years. They’ve been two of the loudest voices when it comes to musicians speaking up in the last few days. 

I was right there retweeting that shit!! My hero!! psychedelicpink:

"The Spook Who Sat Next To The Door"where this brotha was In the CIA for a few years, resigned, and began unifying all the gangs in the nation with what he learned and they overtook the whitehouse and got control of the nation. A real eye opener! -M

101 years ago today (March 10, 1913), Harriet Tubman passed away.

Tubman was one of the main “conductors” of the Underground Railroad, a feminist, abolitionist, humanitarian, and one of the first women to become a Union spy and lead an armed expedition in the Union Army during the American Civil War.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

Rest In Power.

Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody.  Not shot and kill and left out on the road.  They were arrested and given due process.  They’re names aren’t leaked.  We’re not seeing invasions into their facebooks for impeding trials.  We’re not even seeing mug shots.  We don’t know if they’re anarchist, klan or anything at all.  We just know they left the scene of a armed chase alive.

This is the difference and the outrage.

they always show us the truth with their actions

Supermodel Ataui Deng has been missing for 10 days, y’all. Had it not been for Roblé’s post, I wouldn’t have heard anything. 10 Days and NOTHING in the media?

*sigh

If you have seen her or know anything concerning her disappearance, email FindAtaui@gmail.com

Again, I feel this begs to be said again:

Black.
Lives.
Matter.
