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”.

“He probably won’t answer you. He has a speech delay. He talks plenty at home, but strangers have a hard time understanding him. So he’s learned that if he just smiles a lot, people will like him, and they won’t know that he has trouble speaking.”

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”?!
