I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the Palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.

In response to the GoFundMe Campaign for Darren Wilson, people are asking GoFundMe to close the account due to the fact that it incites hate and obviously violates their terms and conditions

The donors and the comments attached to the campaign are sick and simply racist. They asking for the “Killing of N*****s”, “purging the savages” and to support a “fellow White” individual that has the right to murder Black people.

Pass this around. Report the Darren Wilson page as for the violation

I will add their contact info as soon as I find it. 

Contact form is here

I can’t stand people who think university is meant to be four years of sex and alcohol and debauchery. Like maybe it’s an immigrant thing but knowing all the shit my parents and grandparents had to survive so that I could even be in this country and in this position to have the opportunities I have, that is not on my radar at all.

Blanca Canales was an educator and a Puerto Rican Nationalist leader who may have been the first woman to lead a revolt against the United States.
"We knew that we would not be victorious but we had to hit our oppressor hard to show our determination to struggle for the independence of Puerto Rico, to the other countries of the world….We sent these troops to attack the [police] headquarters at noon and there and then the shootout began. We ran out of bullets and then seized the headquarters with molotov cocktails…I raised the flag of Puerto Rico and screamed “Viva Puerto Rico Libre” to establish the fact that we had proclaimed the Republic…I was in jail for 16 years and 10 months, almost 17 years. The empire does not give recognition to the political prisoner. I was treated like a common prisoner. During the first eight months I was incommunicado….Time and time again they tried to destroy my revolutionary spirit and to do away with the love I had for my country and the right to fight for her…The role of the woman is as important as of the man [in the revolution]. The revolutionary woman must act accordingly with the demands of the revolution, be it to arm herself, educate her people, or whatever is necessary.”—Puerto Rican resistance leader Blanca Canales, a political prisoner after the Jayuya Uprising of 1950, interviewed in 1970

Reminder that Ferguson is a food desert and school is canceled. People’s movement is restricted. The work of the St Louis Food Bank is vital right now. Help if you can. (x)

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

I’m confused if she was killed how can she be interviewed.

They (the police) were saying she was killed. 

She is very much alive

Your previous post about Taylor Swift being racist was quite stupid to begin with. If you look carefully, even white girls were twerking. And if you see the Livechat then you would have known what was the whole point of the video. People seriously need to stop this thing. And by people I mean people like you. Even the haters and the anti fans are defending her because any person (who is not dense and not being intentionally) can see the true message instead of creating a hustle. Thank you.

owning-my-truth:

Ayesha Siddiqi, “Can the White Girl Twerk?” :

"The thrill of appropriation lies in accessing the perceived authenticity of black sexuality, the success of appropriation lies in abandoning its natural form. Transfer to a white body elevates the action. It’s no longer primitive because while nonwhite culture is assumed to be rooted in instinct, white culture is one of intent. Elaborate nail art, like the kind Miley wears now, appears stylish on a white girl but described as “ghetto” on a black girl because on the white girl, it’s an aesthetic choice whereas black girls just don’t know any better. White people clamoring to up their cred by appropriating nonwhite culture do so hoping to be rewarded for choices that are falsely seen as inherent in people of color. It’s this savvy that Miley wants us to be convinced of."

 Advice he’d give a 12-year-old version of himself"It might sound oversimplified, but I’d say, ‘Shhh.’ It’s so funny how noisy my brain is - it’s what it does, it makes thoughts. And the problem is, I think in most of our lives the root of suffering is listening to that brain noise and actually identifying with it as if it’s who you are. That’s just the noise your brain makes. And more often than not, it probably doesn’t have much to say that’s going to help you. I’ve felt my best are the moments that I’ve been able to pull that plug and say, ‘Chris … shhh … shhh.’ And it’s not quitting, it’s not giving up, it’s not washing your hands of the thought, it’s rising above it. All the time I’ve spent suffering as a result of brain noise, hours of my life wasted. So that’s what I’d say: ‘Shhh.’"

best advice

"Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box."

"All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity."

"I thank all Police, you are the ‘Thin Blue Line’ protecting normal Americans from aggressive and entitled primitive savages. America is surely at the tipping point."

Just a few quotes (in case it’s hard to read) from that collection of donation messages for Darren Wilson.

Does anyone else want to say it’s not about race?

white people are scary

People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.

This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:

Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.
