I take no solace or joy in this man’s passing. We will not dance upon his grave, nor stand vigil at his funeral holding “God Hates Freds” signs, tempting as it may be.

He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end.

The late great Big Chief Allison “Tootie” Montana. New Orleans, Mardi Gras Indians. During slavery, Blacks and Native Americans protected each other from the oppressors. This is a way that Blacks pay tribute by combining their West Indies, African and the Native American cultures. It has been going on since the 1800’s in New Orleans, La.

I know little of American history it seems.

Shout out to everybody who has forgiven me after I’ve fucked up.

Forgiveness is a hard thing to come by.

Thank you.

I need an image for my white privilege synthesis essay, and I always use your blog to help me out (6 week project) could you shoot me a good picture that can be analyzed to represent white privilege. Or at least a form of it. Having a lot of trouble finding a good source to use. Thank you xoxo

Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man  and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York.    Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.

Andrews was arrested in April  2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.

*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*

The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.

FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says. 

Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”. 

Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.
