I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     Look at this photo. This is the most beautiful thing I have seen online this month aside from Nick Jonas's butt.

     Stacey Dash on Black Democrats: They have a plantation mentality.

"They have a plantation mentality. As long as they give you this much money, you’ll stay right there. You don’t need to know too much because if you do, you might start thinking for yourself."


I keep tellin y’all white dick is the devil and it will have you acting crazy and coonin’ for Fox News bobbleheads.  Stacey wasn’t sayin all this when she was with Christopher Williams back in the day so I guess that little white child turned her out completely.

     Darren Wilson’s testimony is irrelevant.


Last month, Darren Wilson testified before the grand jury to justify shooting an unarmed man six times.  By law, he’s not required to testify and many cops in this situation choose not to, but someone in Wilson’s camp knew that even though his “version” of the scenario shouldn’t ultimately matter, it sets the stage for a jury to believe he felt his life was in danger.

Michael Brown’s death has three parts:
1) The initial stop by Wilson
2) The struggle in the cruiser
3) The actual murder

The only section of the timeline that should matter is the third part, but the defense in this case is using what allegedly happened in Wilson’s police cruiser to justify killing a man who was running away from him minutes after that.  If the jury is supposed to take the second scene in the series of events as an explanation to justify the third, then they should take the initial scene as well because Brown should have never been stopped in the first place.

     Today marks three months since Eric Garnder was choked to death by an NYPD officer.

Still, no charges have been filed.

The video shows police choking Eric Garner to death.  The medical examiner declared his death a homicide.  Chokeholds have been banned by the NYPD since 1993.  That looks like a straight-forward march to trial, but of course, the case is wrapped up in red tape and political posturing because no one wants to risk angering police or their constituents.  I’m already convinced there will be no justice, but I want everyone to be very aware of the reasons why.

     Gov. Nikki Haley defends Confederate flag on state house grounds because CEOs don’t care.

Well, that settles it then.  CEOs don’t mind the Confederate flag and that’s whose opinion reallymatters so nobody else should care either.  Plus, Nikki Haley is Indian-American and South Carolina elected her, so clearly, the entire history of the Confederate flag being used as a beacon for racism and injustice is wiped out now.


She basically did the “I have a colored friend” thing in reverse.  It doesn’t work one-on-one in interpersonal relationships, and it doesn’t work in the context of state politics either.

     "European American" and "African American" are not two sides of the same coin.





Nah though, she right. You don’t call white folks, “European American”.


I haven’t really had much to say about Raven’s little “we are the world” moment on Oprah because it’s not that important to me, but I’m really tired of seeing this passed around on tumblr as if we don’t all live in the real world where race is an actual thing that matters and how we refer to ourselves is some big controversy.

     Today in Random Acts of Racism: Elderly Black woman stabbed four times.


A 79-year-old Black woman was stabbed at a grocery store in Homewood, IL, a suburb of Chicago.  The assailant, 26-year-old Pol Danilov, attacked the woman with a five-inch steak knife, stabbing her four times and puncturing her lung in the process.  She’s expected to recover and he’s in jail for attempted murder with a hate crime charge because he picked his victim partly based on race.

     Black teens at 10 to 40 times more risk of being murdered by the police than whites.

Absorb that.  Our Black teens aren’t twice as likely to be killed by cops.  Not three times.  TEN to FORTY times more likely to be shot and killed by the police.

ProPublica calculated a statistical figure called a risk ratio by dividing the rate of black homicide victims by the rate of white victims. This ratio, commonly used in epidemiology, gives an estimate for how much more at risk black teenagers were to be killed by police officers.Risk ratios can have varying levels of precision, depending on a variety of mathematical factors. In this case, because such shootings are rare from a statistical perspective, a 95 percent confidence interval indicates that black teenagers are at between 10 and 40 times greater risk of being killed by a police officer. The calculation used 2010-2012 population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.


Let’s really break these down though because it gets worse.
