I was a mad woman, I wanted California to fall into the sea, and I wanted to fall in with it, to be swallowed by a thing so big, so huge, so utterly enormous that I would disappear into absolute nothingness. I wanted to see it heave and slide and fall with the greatest roar and rumble the world had ever known, and I wanted to go down with it, because once I went down with it , I wouldnt have to think about how scattered were the fragments of my life and mind. If the fragments wouldn't come together and function for me, then let them fly apart, scatter, and be gone weightless throughout the universe. Let freedom reign. Let nothing matter. That was my belief.

People aren’t talkin about the news, they’re talking about what they think the news is. There is no news channel saying “This is what happened, draw your own conclusions.” We have made this country so bereft of critical thinking, that now we have a problem where we have to teach them to think for themselves.

We have no unified authority, or problem solvers. We have congressman discussing environmentalism, when they don’t understand half the problems our earth is going through. We go to congress instead of going to people who have worked their whole LIFE trying to solve these problems. When it comes to racism, we’re asking a panel of white dudes, when it comes to sexism and woman’s rights we ask a panel of white priests on what they think. IT’S INSANITY! We ask people who are not in the arena they should be speaking in/for.

AND THAT’S WHY WE DON’T trust the media, it’s because they’re not in the arena of black experience, and they don’t care about the black experience, UNTIL something bad happens and they have the tools to paint us as destructive, ugly and evil!

Actual problems with feminism

- excluding POC, mogai, disabled and especially trans women

- ignoring issues that do not involve the U.S

- not realizing that feminism is for women to realize that they can do what they want and thrashing women who are feminine or wear religious attire

Not problems of feminism

- one teenage girl saying she hates men because 5 men catcalled her while walking home from school

St. Louis, MO

Since the police report was bullshit, this is footage of what actually happened in the Kajieme Powell shooting YESTERDAY (8/19). Yes, they got another one of our boys. They handcuffed him AFTER shooting him NINE TIMES for stealing donuts and soda. Apparently, “he had a knife”, but they could have easily defended themselves with a taser.

This happened about three miles from where Mike Brown was killed.

White cops are killing all of these brown bodies without hesitation over petty crimes, but this isn’t a race issue? k

AS A WARNING TO ANYONE WHO HASN’T SEEN IT: SOMEONE DIES IN THIS VIDEO. SOMEONE IS SHOT TO DEATH. KNOW BEFORE CLICKING PLAY.

This man was obviously upset. No one is denying he was being belligerent. I don’t care what you think, though, no one deserves to be shot over two drinks and a box of donuts or yelling at the police. NON-LETHAL FORCE COULD HAVE BEEN UTILIZED. There was so much time. So much distance. Negotiating could have been attempted, even. What do they do instead? They make a bullet filled body out of him, then handcuff him. Kill ‘em and cuff ‘em over shouting and shop lifting. Fucking. Police. Brutality.

His knife wasn’t out and his hands were at his side, but the cops are claiming he was within 3 or 4 feet with his knife raised to stab. If this gentleman had been WHITE, cops would have wrestled him down and those cuffs would have been slapped on LIVE wrists. White men with guns have been non-lethally subdued and arrested after lethally shooting multiple people. Let that sink in.

holy fucking shit

FYI, the shooting beings around 1:35, its pretty bad
