Can we all agree that the Chris Dorner manhunt was a top 5 moment of 2013?
I have never been so wildly entertained by something in my entire life.
"For 75 years I’ve roamed this world hailing my prophet five times a day.I cant stand being lectured to by some irate child.Our god isnt full of hate.He loves science and the arts.He’s never happier than when his children are at peace.It’s a pity he lets so many fools speak his name."
“His name is Kendrick Kj Johnson he was beaten to death at his High School here in Valdosta Ga the police is covering up his story by saying there was no foul play but clearly you can see its a lie. They have yet to give the Johnson/Tooley family any answers. Im only asking for a minute of your time to plz share his story we need all the support we can get. Please support the Kendrick Kj Johnson movement.”
To everyone following my blog, please share this information! Time has repeated itself and repeated the Emmett Till Case all over again. The Valdosta Police are trying to say that he climbed on top of an upright tumbling mat, fell into it upside down and died… He went missing during one of his classes and was found the next day like what you see above. The police would not let the family identify the body upon finding KJ’s body…. Now I don’t know about you but no one would be that bloated and disfigured after 24hrs stuck in a tumbling mat.
Below you will find a link to a compilation of News articles involving his death and a petition go get the federal government involved in solving his murder.
This Family deserves answers, prayers, and Justice! Please Share and get our communities involved!!!
Guys please read this and sign the petition. It’s going on in the city I live in and needs more recognition!!!
(229) 245-5270 this is the Valdosta police dept number how about all of us call and see what’s going on and demand justice! Also he is another article that raises some great questions. http://www.examiner.com/article/lowndes-coroner-admits-he-wasn-t-initially-notified-kendrick-johnson-s-death
“You don’t come back in here until you’ve apologized to every person in this room, Because you just exercised a freedom that none of these people of color have. When these people of color get tired of racism, they can’t just walk out, because there’s no place in this country where they aren’t going to be exposed to racism. They can’t even stay in their own homes and not be exposed to racism if they turn on their television. But you, as a white female, when you get tired of being judged and treated unfairly on the basis of your eye color, you can walk out that door, and you know it won’t happen out there. You exercised a freedom they don’t have. If you’re going to be in here you’re going to apologize to every person of color in this room. And do it now.”
“I’m sorry there’s racism in this country—
“BULLSHIT! No, you’re not going to say ‘I’m sorry there’s racism.’ You’re going to apologize for what YOU just did.”
“I will not apologize because it’s not a matter of race always—”
Jane Elliot is a champ.
I find it fascinating how much some of the white people in the room resisted the idea that racism could hurt POC just for existing & being of color.
Things you do to yourself: piercings, tattoos, hair dye, etc. DON’T FUCKING MATTER IN ANY WAY that is comparable to race. EVER.
“You don’t have the right to say to a person ‘I don’t see you as you are’”.
“You’re denying their reality.”
Taking away power is comparable to death to the white people in the room.
It took until the second half for what was going on here to really click.
Pretty much this.
Jane Elliot has been my fucking hero since I first learned about her in college. You know why?
Because in 1968, after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr, she conducted a little "experiment" with her class of kids in grade school. What she saw illuminated profoundly some of the mechanics of power and oppression, and gave those little white kids the tiniest, most tame taste of what it was like to be a person of color back then.
You can see her exercise in action again, with adults instead of kids, in the video. It’s worth watching.
Jane Elliot goes hard in the paint. She is living proof that whiteness/white culture is no excuse not to “get it”. She is living proof that “It was a different time” doesn’t mean a goddamned thing. She is living proof that there’s an example of what an ally SHOULD be and she is proof that it can be done without worrying about “all white people” or making it about oneself.
Fucking love this woman forever. Most of all because this isn’t a case of her taking credit for something a person of color did, either. She aint no Tim Wise.
Look here privileged people this is how you ally
The only thing I don’t like is that she says one of the students “can change her orientation.” She is still advantaged in that she can change how she presents herself, and hide her orientation if she chooses to, but changing orientation isn’t an option.
she said ornamentation btw
