The last words said by Black youth murdered by policemen.

America was built on two monumental crimes: the genocide of the Native American and the enslavement of the African American. The tendency of official America is to memorialize other peoples’ crimes and to forget its own - to seek a high moral ground as a pretext to ignore real issues.

"Well if they didnt look like thugs"
THE ONLY THUGS IVE SEEN DURRING THIS ARE THE ONES WITH BADGES

Bolded for emphasis.

If you’re a feminist against rape culture but you don’t see any problem with people telling black people to dress/act differently so as not to be attacked, then you’re one giant hypocrite. Clothing does not dictate anyone’s worth!

Tell us again how the Palestinians are supposed to act when they are, for all intents and purposes, being exterminated. Israel is doing to them exactly what America did to Native Americans. Bit by bit, parcel by parcel, village by village, they’re being exterminated and expunged.

My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means “The road is good.” Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, “Why?” I said, “Nobody can pronounce it.” Without missing a beat, she said, “If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.”

Perfect.

Don’t read the comments on the youtube video if you’re triggered by rape threats or anything like that. I spent about fifteen minutes yesterday flagging as many as I could as spam but there are doubtless more.
