Enforcement Officials Beat & Kidnap a 12-yo Black Girl in Front of her Residence, Claiming She Was a Prostitute
"When her mother and father came outside after hearing her cries for help she was desperately holding a tree with one arm while plainclothes officers were beating her in the head, neck and throat.
Dymond Milburn, now 20-years-old, was an honor student attending advanced classes at Austin Middle School, when her life would be forever scarred by Galveston police.”
None of the enforcement officials who terrorized and beat Milburn were penalized.

Anonymous said: I see you believe HIV was created in a lab, sorry to burst your bubble, but back then we didn't have the knowledge of DNA so we couldn't have made the virus, without the education of DNA. By that time we barely learned that DNA was important.

ummmm, my bubble is still a shimmering orb of excellence.

Back when? How far is back then?

Polio vaccines were nearing completion in the early 1950’s.

DNA was beginning to be understood in the 1950’s.

It was during these times Africans served as guinea pigs for western scientist to use as test subjects for these vaccines.

This was ground zero for the adverse effects of these failed vaccines; where they studied how some experimental pseudo-medicinal cocktails could break down the human immune system.

Then decades later in the mid to late 70’s and early 80’s we see the emergence of HIV in the same African regions.

If Asian men are the vassals for white men’s domination fantasies, black men are the tools required for white male submissive fantasies. As Frantz Fanon explains, the black ‘man’ no longer exists in the white sexual imagination. Instead, ‘one is no longer aware of the negro, but only of a penis. The Negro is eclipsed. He is turned into a penis. He is a penis.’ Rather than existing as individuals, black men exist as sexual tools, ready to fulfill, or violate, white male sexual fetishes.

i was just talking about how when acknowledging Black Women’s existence, all they talk about is one of Black Women’s sexual organs. the only names we hear Black Women called in the media are sexually objectifying hoe, thot or one body part phat ass, bootilicious, ratchet pussy. that’s when centering us, when we are at the sidelines of the conversation it’s always talking about how ugly we are physically and the combination of being sexually fetishized and being called a hoe contributes to narrativess about evil seductresses and perpetuates victim blaming for black girls who are the most trafficked in the u.s. and how white people have this obsession with black women’s boobs (i can’t even go into the history of black women being used as breast-feeders to white children and how that may connect to white people’s entitlement to ask me all the time what color my nipples are.) then i thought about porn websites have sections called black women and bbc “big black cock”, and how that was the first time i’ve seen black women referred to as black women

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution it’s really scaryit’s really infuriatingit’s really exhausting

Her face makes me very very very very very sad. I wanna cry

Fuck all cops.

I don’t know why the husband believes they were targeted because they were an interracial couple… SHE was targeted because SHE was black… da fuk…

Right. He somehow had to make it about him when it was obvious that it was about her being black.

well part of the reason they stood out was because they were an interracial couple. let’s not pretend that isn’t still taboo.

Who’s cuffed though…..

We all know that african folk were the first folks on the planet.. but we still having studies about “where languages derive from”… “Where the entire population of the planet comes from”.. “Who did it first”… “Who were the originators”…. People literally can’t fathom being connected to black people in any way…

White Marijuana Millionaires.

curvesincolor:

Since Colorado voted to legalize marijuana for recreational use in January, that vote has created more then 20 white marijuana millionaires who the Government has allowed to store their millions in U.S. Banks. 

Keep in mind that there are more then 100,000 black and latino people who are in American prisons for the same simple possession and intend to sell marijuana. 

BUT THEY MAKING WHITE BOYS MILLIONAIRES FOR COMMITTING THE SAME ACT!

We have been able to theorize colonialism as a practice of subjection, exploitation, and dominance in the modern arsenal of European power, beyond its various particular instantiations in and by respective countries, because we have a term, even though it had to be reappropriated from imperial historiography critically and antagonistically. Slavery, by contrast, exists in the Western intellectual critical imaginary only as an isolated event, since our very language has axed it from our inner and outer worlds of critical thought. The ‘event’ can be described, and historiography, at this point, fills libraries, but does not translate into a cause for and lever of theorization, and that is not happenstance, but has method, and purpose. The humanist white subject has been supposed to remember, address, articulate, empathize with, rejoice in, question the brutality, and elicit other particularly emotional responses to the specific situation, to the imagined ‘event’ of being a slave in slavery. The image of slavery as traumatic occurence, situated often beyond the frame of human rational understanding, that limit event - in an act of perverse theft - has given metaphorical heft to modern and postmodern protest against white human suffering and bondage. The idea of slavery as ‘event,’ and of the slave as a generic, naturalized term for the being held in slavery, however, has never put the white subject’s practice of forcing Black being into

## an argument for using the term “Enslavism” over “Slavery”. The latter being reduced to an “isolated event” with a “limited temporal and spatial sequence” and the former possessing “structure-generative systemic practice, including theorizable geneological function”.

Tumblr is a real-time, continuous documentation of language evolution and race dynamics. Over the last three years I’ve seen the language used by the Black users I follow make its way into the lexicon of white and other nonblack people’s vernacular. It happens rapidly and the astonishing thing is that despite the indisputable and clearly identifiable origins of the words and phrases coined primarily by Black Americans, nonblacks lay immediate claim to the language and use it to trivialize African American culture and dehumanize and persecute its purveyors.

BOOM.

Interestingly, when cash welfare had first been created back in the 1930s (and when access had been restricted to white women), allowing mothers to stay home and raise kids, and not have to work in the labor force, had been articulated as the very purpose of the program. Only when women of color began to gain access to the same benefits did the nation suddenly decide that welfare was bad for you, made you lazy, and needed to be replaced with compulsory employment.

Black twitter/black tumblr is literally the modern version of barbershop/hair salon talk/kitchen table talk. These are the kinds of conversations that we’ve always had when a group a black people come together and discuss current events. Nothing new or innovative about it. It doesn’t take some damn study to understand that it’s very possible for black men and women to collectively have intelligent opinions about something. The fact that USC is fascinated with black twitter is problematic in itself. Comeplete bullshit.

USC is coming off as a racist, Victorian British professor caricature, who’s ~*fascinated*~ by the “primitives”.
