Hennyproud interviewer whats free to you @elvira

Interviewer: What’s “free” to you, Nina?
Nina Simone: What’s “free” to me?
Interviewer: Yeah
Nina Simone: Same thing it is to you. You tell me.
Interviewer: No, no, you tell me [laughs]
Nina Simone: [laughs] It’s just a feeling. It’s just a feeling. It’s like, “How do you tell somebody how it feels to be in love?” How are you going to tell anybody who has not been in love how it feels to be in love? You cannot do it to save your life. You can describe things but you can’t tell them, but you know it when it happens. That’s what I mean by “free”.

White Ohio officers slam black teens outside pool 

It happened again. Video has emerged of police aggressively responding to a disturbance at a local pool in Fairfield, Ohio, last week. One officer can be seen slamming a 12-year-old girl by the neck against a police car. The police also used pepper spray against another, who can be heard saying, “You just maced me in my mouth.” All because of a minor rule infraction at the pool.

“After reviewing the video, Fairfield Mayor Steve Miller ultimately came down on the side of the police. “This is an unfortunate situation and our officers had a tough situation there. But I think they did a good job in showing restraint,” he said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.”


I’m sorry, but in what world is a grown man breaking an innocent 12-year-old girl’s jaw and ribs “showing restraint”?!

somecompany:

I can’t wrap my head around this they will dig up any dirt regardless how irrelevant on victims of color but refuse to bring up the literal motive behind what we all know was a hate crime! Everyday people are finding this information why the fuck isn’t it on the news ????!!!!!!!!

For all the white people saying they’re “waiting for a motive” foh

SO HIDEOUS

Micdotcom as new details emerge about the @elvira

micdotcom:

As new details emerge about the suspect and his motives, we must also consider the historical significance attached to the scene of the crime — a broader frame that includes a city and state with deep and, in some cases, abiding ties to the most violent chapters in American history.

WHY DIDN’T THEY TEACH YOU ABOUT THIS IN HISTORY CLASS?

The Christian Movement for Life, aka, MOVE

  • a pro-green, vegan, anti-technology group
  • living in a house in West Philadelphia
  • BOMBED by the Philly PD, from the air, on May 13, 1985
  • YES, 1985!!!
  • the city killed 11 people (5 children), burned down 65 homes in a Black, middle-class, West Philly neighborhood, and caused $50,000,000.00 damage - all to “evict” the group and recover two shotguns
  • You know of Mumia Abu-Jamal (3rd photo from bottom) but did you know he was affiliated with MOVE?
  • Ramona Africa (2nd photo from bottom) and one child survived
  • MOVE leader John Africa was murdered that day

This was not the ONLY time an American city was bombed, btw. The first time, it was ALSO whites bombing Black people. And you want to talk about TERRORISM??? 

And what else don’t you know about your country and it’s treatment of Black people?

Get to Googling… AND Youtubing…

Ellen Page is an important actor and Hard Candy is an important film.

Hard Candy is a VERY heavy movie about a specific type of guy, but what Ellen page is saying here is relevant for all adults who argue “oh they were flirting / they initiated.”

This speech should be required daily viewing for judges that handle CSA cases.

Krxs10 cleveland police filed charges like @elvira

krxs10:

Cleveland Police Filed Charges like “Aggravated Menacing” & “Inducing Panic” On Tamir Rice To Justify Shooting Him

If you’re a cop and you’ve just shot a 12-year old kid dead without giving him a chance to follow your orders, what do you do? You file a report making it look like he was a criminal, that’s what.

According to recently obtained documents from the Cleveland Police Department, 12-year old Tamir Rice was going to be charged with the outrageous crimes of “aggravated menacing” and “inducing panic.”

Dear police: We give those crimes back to you. All across the United States, you have induced panic and served as aggravating menaces and have gotten away with these crimes for far too long.

How dare you ever consider charging this young brother with these crimes. He was no menace, but a sixth-grade boy, and the only reason you or anyone else panicked was because of his brown skin. Here are eight white people who pointed real guns at real people and lived to tell the story.

Here is the bogus criminal report for Tamir.

Notice the following three points.

  1. They list three victims of Tamir Rice:
    1. The State of Ohio 
    2. Officer Loehmann (who shot and killed Tamir) 
    3. Officer Garmback (who drove the vehicle) 
  2. This is essential. They are not claiming Tamir was a menace or induced panic to other people in the park, but to the officers. ABSURD. 
  3. At the end of the report, notice that they say this complaint was “abated by death.“ 
  4. Notice the officer who shot and killed Tamir claims to have had minor injuries.

yooo

So what’s it gone take for the “uppity” black people to realize this affects them too?

^^^^!!!!!

That was hard to read for me, and my visual issues are at a minimum so I’ma transcribe:

Large text:

“When people saw what happened to MY son, men stood up  who had NEVER stood up before.”- Mamie Till-Mobley

Smaller text, underneath picture of Mrs. Till-Mobley and husband (I’m assuming that last part, I actually don’t know for sure who he is):

“Two months ago I had a nice apartment in Chicago…. I had a good job. I had a son. When something happened to Negroes in the South, I said: ‘That’s their business, not mine.’… Now I know how wrong I was. The murder of my son has shown me what happens to any of us, anywhere in the world, had better be the business of us all.” - Mamie Till-Mobley

This is about Emmett Till BTW.

New device allows brain to bypass spinal cord, move paralyzed limbs

For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.
