I just wanna hug that baby smh… when we’re children we’re not children.
People have been asking for a dirtbike track in Baltimore for at least 10 years, they only ride in the streets because they’ve been banned from every other open area. So many kids get arrested/assaulted for this here!
It IS messed up that that billboard is stating a FACT. The fact that over one half of all African American pregnancies end in abortion. The fact that 80+% of abortion mills are in minority neighborhoods.
It IS messed up.
And yet WE are the racist ones.
yes, you are the racist ones. where are you after those brown babies are born? do you speak up when they’re hunted down and beaten by the police? do you speak up against a system that systematically works to oppress them, making the decision to have a child so much harder because having a child is so much more than giving birth? are you going to help pay for their healthcare? schooling? housing? food? Where are you when it comes to discussing why the fuck is the system made so that PoC have less access to a better education, financial aid, work etc. Don’t pretend to care about brown babies when they’re beaten and killed every day and you people are no where to be found. Racist piece of shit.

reblogging for that paragraph ^^
A few years ago, I read an article where the mother of this child was actually upset at how her daughter’s photo was used.
Reminder that the claim that 80% of abortion clinics are located in minority neighborhoods is a complete and utter lie propagated by anti-choicers. The real percentage of abortion clinics located in predominantly black neighborhoods is 9%.
63% are located near neighborhoods that are made up of mostly non-hispanic white people. [x]
But of course instead of maybe taking a look at the reason many PoC seek out abortions, anti-choicers would rather make up statistics and cry “I’m not racist! Pro-choicers are racist because they let PoC make their own decisions!”
(I also love that these kinds of statements come straight from people who will appropriate tragedies like slavery, genocide, or the murder of PoC and pretend they’re equivalent to abortion. So not racist.)
A video showing the arrest of a black St. Paul man for allegedly sitting in a public space and refusing to give up his name surfaced yesterday, Aug. 26 — only weeks after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Missouri re-sparked the national debate on race and police profiling. The video, shot by the man’s cellphone, shows his interaction with officers as he attempts to pick up his children from New Horizon Academy in downtown St. Paul. As the officers force the man to put his hands behind his back, he drops his phone and the video goes black, but the audio continues and we hear the man crying for help and proclaiming that his kids are watching. Both officers in the video are white. “Why do I have to let you know who I am?” the man tells the first female officer at the beginning of the video. “I don’t have to let you know who I am if I haven’t broken any laws.” From the following dialogue, it appears the police were called by a store clerk, who was upset over the man sitting in front of his store. The man in the video tells the officer he was sitting in front of the store for 10 minutes as he waited for his kids to get out of school, and that the area is public and he had a right to sit there. “The problem was —” the female officer begins. “The problem is I’m black,” the man fires back. “It really is, because I’m not sitting there with a group of people. I’m sitting there by myself. By myself, not causing a problem.” Eventually a second male officer approaches the man in the video and attempts to restrain him. “I’ve got to go get my kids,” the man tells the second officer, pulling his arm away. “Please don’t touch me.” “You’re going to go to jail then,” the second officer says. “I’m not doing anything wrong,” the man replies. At this point, both officers grab the man. “Come on brother,” the man says, “This is assault.” “I’m not your brother,” the second officer replies. “Put your hands behind your back otherwise it’s going to get ugly.” Eventually the officers start to cuff the man and he drops his cellphone and the video goes black. “I haven’t done anything wrong!” we hear the man yell. “Can somebody help me? That’s my kids, right there! My kids are right there!” “Put your hands behind your back!” the male officer screams. We hear the flicker of a Taser and the man screams out. As they move away from the cellphone, the man continues to plea to passersby to help him. In the distance the scene calms down and the man continues to explain to the officers that he still hasn’t broken any laws, that he stayed calm, didn’t curse and wasn’t attempting to flee — making cuffing him and tazing him unnecessary. “I didn’t do anything wrong. I’m a working man. I take care of my kids. And I get this?” we hear him say. “And you tase me. For what? I don’t have any weapons. You’re the ones with the weapons here.”
Why not? You shouldn’t even have to ask for equality and justice.
Because it’s all about preaching what u believe in!! If u want equality and justice then preach that..not the opposite
It’s a constitutional right. You wanna preach go to church or stand on a soap box. No matter what give we should be given what we all deserve
But that’s part of the issue here. What hip pop portrays now tarnishes the image of what we pursue to be. Yes we deserve equality it’s a constitutional right. It’s just about having morals and principle.
NO THE FUCK IT IS NOT.
Please, whoever told you that you need to be dignified and proper as a black person to exercise your rights needs to have their ass beat while you watch and then you need a sound beating yourself as they watch.
If a goddamn serial killer who is white can have equality and justice under the law, you will not sit your fucking ass up here and tell me that ANY black musician, regardless of whether they rapping about drugs, money, or whatever the fuck they wanna rap about, will not receive the same.
Fuck you and anyone that has a but to add to that.
Lecrae needs to shut the fuck up, honestly. What kind of new black shit is this? Just because you do Christian rap doesn’t give you the right to say shit like this like you are above everyone else in the industry.
New Black = Same Ol Bougie ass Boule Blacks
lol so when white people shoot up schools they deserve justice doe right ?’
new black coon shit “we can get shot by cops when they feel like it and suffer from the white established racism system just because of what we rap about” fuck outta here with that bullshit
Ferguson Cops Busted? New Video Seems To Show Brown Paying For Cigarillos
While it is difficult to be 100% certain, the video appears to show Brown purchasing some cigars, but lacking the money for the amount he wished to buy. Brown seems to purchase some cigarillos, pay for them, attempt to buy more, then replace the ones he could not afford.
The confrontation between Brown and the clerk may have been because Brown impatiently reached across the counter. Perhaps it was wrong for Brown to shove the employee (it is impossible to know what words were exchanged) but this footage seems to exonerate him. It is important to note that Brown only shoved the clerk after he put his hands on him.
In any case, neither the employee nor the store owner called law enforcement–something that would surely happen if Brown committed a “strong-arm robbery.”
