Black Love.. THIS IS BEAUTIFUL!!! Cant wait to share all my love with her… ;)
I love people who are open-minded. People who just vibe with whatever you talk about. You can talk about anything and everything.
Once it was [Kanye] West’s turn to speak again, he said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”. West’s mic was silenced, and Myers turned, visibly shocked by the comment. […] George W. Bush would later call it “one of the most disgusting moments” of his presidency.

Yeah, not when he stole the Presidential election in 2000.
Not all the “rendition” and “interrogations”.
Not when they crafted a media campaign to get people to support another occupation.
Not when we littered Iraq with radioactive waste because we loved our DU shells.
Not when we used White phosphorus on Fallujah in a way that can only be described as a city-wide collective punishment.
Not when that war ate up the national guard and reserves so that the federal government just didn’t have the resources on hand for when Katrina broke the levees.
Not when the Bush administration continued to bungle the response to that, leaving thousands of mostly Black people dead or homeless.
No, Kanye’s the gross one, supposedly.
And Bush said that after he left office I’m pretty sure, so we’re talking about him also disregarding how he bailed out the irresponsible banks while home values tanked.
YES cause how could a black male DARE to call out the president on national television. (via dominicansupremacist)
The cheers of fellow cops for her unarmed son’s killer stung Constance Malcolm as cruelly as the bitter tears in her eyes.
“That’s how they work,” the heartbroken mom said Wednesday after Officer Richard Haste was sprung on $50,000 bail in the Feb. 2 shooting of Ramarley Graham. “You see it every day.”
Malcolm and her husband, Franclot Graham, sobbed throughout the Bronx Criminal Court hearing where Haste softly pleaded innocent on his 31st birthday. The weeping Graham faces Father’s Day without his son.
Yet the assembled cops still applauded their brother in blue, who faces up to 25 years in prison, in a salute that struck the Graham family like a slap in the face.
“It puts salt in the wounds.”
Courthouse protesters infuriated by the Bronx killing offered a vocal counterpoint to the clapping by taunting the four-year NYPD veteran.
“NYPD, KKK, how many kids did you kill today?” the demonstrators chanted at Haste, who appeared in court on crutches after a recent motorcycle accident.
Prosecutor Donald Levin, during the arraignment, said Haste’s decision to fire a single fatal shot into Graham was “neither reasonable or justifiable.”
In the most detailed description yet of the fatal encounter, Levin said Graham and Haste were just a few feet apart inside the cramped second-floor bathroom.
Haste “stood face to face with Ramarley Graham,” his weapon pointed directly at the teen, whose grandmother and 6-year-old brother were nearby, Levin said.
