I’m pissing myself laughing at the Beatles fans who are saddened that Kanye West might make an album w/ Paul McCartney because now they’ll be left with the age old challenge of being a classic rock fan, "should I stick with my racially bias opinion of music or admit that rap is a legitimate art form?" I can hardly wait for all the cry babies I’m jerking off rn just thinking about it

I’ve told the kids in the ghettos that violence won’t solve their problems, but then they ask me, and rightly so; “Why does the government use massive doses of violence to bring about the change it wants in the world?” After this I knew that I could no longer speak against the violence in the ghettos without also speaking against the violence of my government

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

white people are going to black neighborhoods to loot to make it seem like black people are destroying their own neighborhoods then go back to their white homes and post about how they’ll shoot any black people who loot their homes

On April 15, 2014, two College Park white male officers assaulted Mary Hooks. Mary Hooks is a mother, sister, friend, community organizer, and a lover of her people. She witnessed an aggressive and excessive police interaction between 4 officers with their guns drawn and 2 younger Black women pulled over behind her car at a gas station. Mary came their aid by asking the women if they knew their rights and if anyone needed to be contacted.When the two male officers approached Mary, she assured them she was standing back, she was only videotaping, and placed her hands up. These offices continue toward her, grabbed her and slammed her into the pavement, pushed her head into the ground with their knees, resulting in a scrab on her head and a fractured elbow.Subsequently, she was arrested, her truck was impounded, and she was charged with obstructing and public disorderly conduct. Both having fines and possible jail time.On behalf of Mary Hooks, community we are asking for your support to raise $3,500.00 cover her legal fees and fines.
