#pumpkinfest is just…..sigh…
They tell us on a regular via social media “the protesters in #Ferguson don’t have jobs or fathers and are mobbing the streets without reason.” But these “kids”, some armed, are “just being kids.” Someone tweeted, “shame we are gassed just for walking down the street.” That’s that privilege right there. But the trolls of the Internet would say anyone pointing out this difference in conversation for real rioters is racist rather than one with eyes wide open. I can’t wait to see the articles that paint this as just a regular ol night of kids having some fun.

Can he do most this, cook, AND be an #activistbae?? Too much to ask? #reasonsimsingle
So about last night…rather, a few hours ago…this weekend was powerful. Marching and protesting with the youth leading this movement along with the families of #mikebrown and #VonderittMyers, Dr. Cornell West, Hedy Epstein, and many more worthy of admiration. #FergusonOctober #OccupySLU #Shaw
Point to the sky and say #mikebrown #fergusonoctober
A friend made this educated point in regards to the old courthouse in my background:
They use to sell slaves at this White House…
The U.S. Supreme Court recognized black men as American Citizens at this White House…
United we at stand THIS house to be recognized as Human. To be allowed the opportunities to life, liberty, and the per suit of happyness.”
History and history in the making. Which side are you on?
I had so many other snippets of vids I wanted to post last night but then saw the hashtag #JusticeForCoran and was sickened. Musical high blown. There are reasons that I’m 32 and childless and that is one of them. There are too many people who have no regard for human life and I would harm someone’s child for doing what they did to that young man. Regardless of race, mental stability, sexual orientation, religion, and so on, there MUST be a general level of respect you have for someone else simply because their blood is red. #justiceformikebrown #justiceforleon #justiceforezell and all the others I’m unaware of. Stay prayed up people.
So fresh and so clean, clean!
I choose you!
If only you knew the struggle it took to get this atop my head. Perhaps I have a big head but I sho nuff have thick hair. Now I’m like, “why did I use a purple goody band?” Doh.
