"The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century."
Never forget that the Ferguson police left Mike Brown’s body out in the hot summer sun, uncovered for more than 5 hours. Sound familiar? #staywoke #farfromover
THE RATE OF POLICE KILLINGS OF BLACK AMERICANS IS NEARLY THE SAME RATE OF LYNCHINGS IN THE EARLY DECADES OF THE 20TH CENTURY
STAY WOLK FOLKS
This picture reminded me of the picture in 1965
“Hog-spitting – not just spitting,” Tonja Bulley emphatically clarifies.
“He just hog-spit at my baby. He hog-spit. He took everything out of him and spit in my daughter’s face. She is a minor. That’s the absolute worst thing you can do, when you spit on another human being. She was just saying ‘No justice, no peace’ and he hog-spit (at) and then smacked my baby. At that time — there was no more being peaceful.”
Bulley and her daughter, Brandy were released from jail last night after being arrested by police outside the St. Louis Rams game the previous day after a violent clash with football fans.
As the Rams were completing an impressive 28-26 victory over the Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks, Tonja and Brandy were outside the stadium participating in a non-violent protest calling for justice for Mike Brown, and the immediate arrest of his killer, Darren Wilson.
Tonja, known affectionately to her friends as “Tiny,” continued:
“We were peacefully protesting. We were saying something that this big, tall White man did not like. He should’ve been locked up, and they did not lock him up. One slapped my daughter and another hit her with his fist. Another woman threw her drink on me – and I retaliated. I’m not coming out to fight, but I have the right to protect myself.”
Tiny would eventually get punched and knocked to the ground. “I got hit by a couple people. I have a mark behind my ear.” She was initially charged with two felonies for throwing punches after the initial altercation. No violent Rams fans were arrested.
She says the racial double-standards were apparent: “We had a right to protest without anybody interfering. When the White people protest, there are no problems. Nobody is spitting on them. When we try to do it, the media goes around and acts like we started (the fighting.) We did not start it. I peacefully protest every day in Ferguson, and it’s never a problem.”
In Ferguson, Tiny and Brandy have been protesting since Brown was killed in August, and have become unofficial members of the Lost Voices—a spirited and well-known group of young leaders who led Sunday’s protest.

Not to mention that Ebola is a engineered virus that was created by American scientist who were looking to weaponize the virus in Africa.
But to hear them tell it, ebola originated in Africa because “Africans are dirty and uncivilized.”
Just like they tried to sell with the AIDS virus.
Can we honestly discuss this. Look at this beautiful accurate portrayal of an Ancient Kemit (Egyptian) Queen. She looks like an Ethereal Goddess.
Reasons why we need to cast Black People as Black People.

This should have a million notes… we can sit and reblog a bunch of weed post (that gets almost up to 60,000 notes) but we cant reblog something REAL like this.
OWN YOUR HISTORY WHITE FOLKS
Never fucking forget what they did.
When Steve Fugate lost his 2 children to suicide and overdose, he hiked across the U.S. for 12 years with a sign that said “Love Life” to remind people that they can overcome life’s hardships with the right mindset. Source
