I want to eat your ass out so bad —by Anonymous

That’s unfortunate because in two days my abstinence promise will hit two months strong, and I don’t plan on stopping for anyone. Especially anonymous creeps like you.

On July 4th a group of people supporting migration were wrongfully arrested by police assisted by border patrol after responding to an extremely hostile racist and reactionary flashpoint in Murrieta, CA where anti immigrant protesters had blocked buses of migrant families. All are facing charges of misdemeanor obstruction and felony lynching. One persyn is also charged with misdemeanor assault on an officer. 

YOOOO I know one of the people who was arrested. There’s a petition to drop the charges that explains more. The felony lynching charge has archaic origins, these days it means “the taking by means of a riot of any person from the lawful custody of any peace officer,” which has apparently become a major tool that police use against pro-immigration protesters.

These were peaceful protesters, they haven’t done anything wrong, and now they face up to four years in prison for exercising their First Amendment right. I know there’s a lot going on in the world to focus on right now, but if you have a moment, please sign the petition, and if you feel so compelled, boost it to others!

Sign the petition, y’all. They’re counting on us.

What happened to Black Wall Street on June 1, 1921?

"Black Wall Street, the name fittingly given to one of the most affluent all-Black communities in America, was bombed from the air and burned to the ground by mobs of envious Whites. In a period spanning fewer than 12 hours, a once thriving Black business district in northern Tulsa lay smoldering – a model community destroyed and a major African-American economic movement resoundingly defused.

The night’s carnage left some 3,000* African Americans dead and over 600 successful businesses lost. Among these were 21 churches, 21 restaurants, 30 grocery stores and two movie theaters, plus a hospital, a bank, a post office, libraries, schools, law offices, a half dozen private airplanes and even a bus system. As could have been expected, the impetus behind it all was the infamous Ku Klux Klan, working in consort with ranking city officials and many other sympathizers.

The best description of Black Wall Street, or Little Africa as it was also known, would be to compare it to a mini Beverly Hills. It was the golden door of the Black community during the early 1900s, and it proved that African Americans could create a successful infrastructure. That’s what Black Wall Street was all about.

The dollar circulated 36 to 100 times, sometimes taking a year for currency to leave the community. Now a dollar leaves the Black community in 15 minutes. As for resources, there were Ph.D.s residing in Little Africa, Black attorneys and doctors. One doctor was Dr. Berry, who owned the bus system. His average income was $500 a day, hefty pocket change in 1910…”

*Other sources state that the death toll was 300, thanks to those who pointed that out. However, whether 300 or 3,000—the destruction and lasting effects are no less devastating. And, really, accurate records weren’t kept, so we’ll never know the actual number of casualties.

unhistorical:

Interviewer: But the question is more, how do you get there? Do you get there by confrontation, violence?

Davis: Oh, is that the question you were asking? Yeah see, that’s another thing. When you talk about a revolution, most people think violence, without realizing that the real content of any revolutionary thrust lies in the principles and the goals that you’re striving for, not in the way you reach them. On the other hand, because of the way this society’s organized, because of the violence that exists on the surface everywhere, you have to expect that there are going to be such explosions. You have to expect things like that as reactions. If you are a black person and live in the black community all your life and walk out on the street everyday seeing white policemen surrounding you… when I was living in Los Angeles, for instance, long before the situation in L.A ever occurred, I was constantly stopped. No, the police didn’t know who I was. But I was a black women and I had a natural and they, I suppose thought I might be “militant.”

And when you live under a situation like that constantly, and then you ask me, you know, whether I approve of violence. I mean, that just doesn’t make any sense at all. Whether I approve of guns.

I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. Some very, very good friends of mine were killed by bombs, bombs that were planted by racists. I remember, from the time I was very small, I remember the sounds of bombs exploding across the street. Our house shaking. I remember my father having to have guns at his disposal at all times, because of the fact that, at any moment, we might expect to be attacked. The man who was, at that time, in complete control of the city government, his name was Bull Connor, would often get on the radio and make statements like, “Niggers have moved into a white neighborhood. We better expect some bloodshed tonight.” And sure enough, there would be bloodshed. After the four young girls who lived, one of them lived next door to me…I was very good friends with the sister of another one. My sister was very good friends with all three of them. My mother taught one of them in her class. My mother—in fact, when the bombing occurred, one of the mothers of one of the young girls called my mother and said, “Can you take me down to the church to pick up Carol? We heard about the bombing and I don’t have my car.” And they went down and what did they find? They found limbs and heads strewn all over the place. And then, after that, in my neighborhood, all the men organized themselves into an armed patrol. They had to take their guns and patrol our community every night because they did not want that to happen again.

"The way Latin@s, xican@s, and chican@s are represented in the media is disgusting. White women and white people are seen in so many different lights, but when you get into talking about a PoC* group you’re automatically grouped into this lump that you may not even fit into. Latin@s come in different shades and colors, some are Black and some are White so to stereotype a massive group of people into a “tan people with big butts, cute Spanish accents and a passion to dance and cook” it’s neglecting parts of our culture as a whole."
