Men Stop Threatening To Kill Your Daughters Boyfriends To Prove Your Masculinity and Show That Your Daughter Is Your Property 2k14

If they claim you as a dependent you’re their property. Be thankful someone loves you enough to put the fear of god into anyone that would even think about doing you harm.

Sarah Collins Rudolph is the fifth little girl who was injured in the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama that killed four little girls readying for Sunday school. Her sister was killed in the bombing. She lost an eye, suffered severe cuts throughout her body, and has endured years of surgery and medical problems as a result of the bombing —sometimes without health insurance- - and has lived in poverty for the past 50 years. She has been ignored and given no recognition of the many losses she has had to endure as a result of this horrendous hate crime. It is shameful that she has been cast aside.

Listen to ” Cutting Edge ” online with Mutabaruka. The man who doesn’t put sense into nonsense. Doesn’t talk about righteousness but CONSCIOUSNESS, the African consciousness before the invasion of Africa by religious people & mass murderers.

"I live in a neighborhood where my husband & I are 1 of the 3 Black families that live here.. Tonight the KKK knocked on our door!!! I was already looking out the window and seen them coming down my driveway. I screamed for my children to come upstairs in my room and into my master bath. . As I seen there faces in fear.. my mind flash back to Malcom X. My oldest understand but not the rest. My husband prides his self on teaching his wife & family self defense when he not home…. My heart was pounding! Palms sweating! Voice weak.. I look at my son.. And my mind drifted to Micheal Brown, Treyvon.Martin, Shawn Bell. WE legal over here.. everything registered! As the knocks kept coming .. I mustard up the voice strength to say just a minute! My body weak.. but my mind strong! I open the door.. Scope on! Beam on! Safety off!!! WHAT CAN I DO FOR YALL!!! Cause you at THE WRONG HOUSE! #FacesPriceless!! I will Protect. My Home, My Children, MY LEGACY!!!"

The UN is a tool of the Imperialist Powers, it only operates in the interest of the Security Council. 

All African, Caribbean, and other non-White Nations should abandon it immediately and form their own global peace organization that excludes the Western Empires and their client states.

Boost this, please!!! I don’t know Shayla but she was in my homeroom- I saw her almost every day. I just found out about her missing status and I’m shocked. Spread the word in any way you can, especially people in Queens and within Delaware County in Pennsylvania!

Fela Kuti on Thomas Sankara

Fela Kuti (15 October 1938 - 2 August 1997) & Thomas Sankara (December 21, 1949 – October 15, 1987)

Did you know that in 1987 – Fela was devastated by the murder of Captain Thomas Sankara – personal friend, fellow musician, revolutionary leader of Burkina Faso and one of the only heads of state at the time who publicly embraced Fela and his music.

In A interview on February 1988 Fela was asked?

Your friend Thomas Sankara has just been murdered. What did Sankara mean to you and how do you feel about his death?
(Long pause)… His departure is a terrible blow to the political life of Africans, because he was the only one talking about African unity, what Africans need, to progress. He was the only one talking. His loss is bad… (Long silence)… but my mind is cool because Sankara’s death must have a meaning for Africa. Now that Sankara has been killed, if the leader of Burkina Fasso, today, is not doing well, you will see it clearly. This means that in future, bad leaders would be very careful in killing good leaders.

Rip Thomas Sankara, happy birthday Fela Kuti.

Cops force man to rap for his freedom

It was rhyme and punishment.

A Brooklyn man says he was forced to rap for a crew of NYPD cops to get out of handcuffs — and warned that if his rhymes weren’t “hot’’ enough, they wouldn’t free him.

“I felt like they were humiliating me,” said Shingles, They were all Caucasian officers, and I’m a black man, and they had me performing for my freedom. I was really upset.”

Shingles are now suing the NYPD for illegal search and false imprisonment for an undisclosed sum.
