my crazy, wonderful, beautiful life

I am getting ready for grad school. Psychology . I love to read anything I can get my hands on. I am a poet and womanist trapped in this crazy world of social constructions, trying to survive. Welcome to my world

I really think that if people worried more about themselves than others they wouldn’t have so many problems. I always wonder why people wonder about what I am doing with my life or how I spend my time. 

this weekend has been all about self-care

relaxing and buying things I need

Ive been reflecting all day about the journey that I start tomorrow. I am so extremely blessed and excited.

On the morning of George Zimmerman’s acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murder earlier this year, with the mainstream media raising the specter of riots, blogger Jay Smooth made a prediction: ‘The fundamental danger of an acquittal is not more riots, it is more George Zimmermans.’

There were no riots. There have been more George Zimmermans.

The Events in Ferguson will one day make a great movie for white people to feel guilty about and give an academy award to

and the story will revolve around a white journalist who ultimately realizes that wow, we’re all human

Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody. Not shot and kill and left out on the road. They were arrested and given due process. They’re names aren’t leaked. We’re not seeing invasions into their facebooks for impeding trials. We’re not even seeing mug shots. We don’t know if they’re anarchist, klan or anything at all. We just know they left the scene of an armed chase alive.
However an UNARMED black kid walking the streets of his neighborhood was shot 6 times by the police.
This is the difference, the racism and the outrage.
Post racial America my ass. #ferguson #racism

Egregious example of white supremacy:Police officers chase down and apprehend four white dudes with multiple weapons, no one is hurt. A disabled black man with a knife is shot down from 10 or more feet away because cops felt “threatened.”

The season finale of the divide was so ridiculously good. My jaw was on the floor the last 15 minutes.
