I am an eclectic mixture of everything. I love to travel, think, and laugh. This blog is a collage of everything I love, like or find interesting. Caribbean born girl raised out in Brooklyn. I love life and I love myself completely.

Marissa Alexander has been denied a new Stand Your Ground hearing. Yet again, Florida refuses to free this survivor of domestic violence, fails to support women’s right to self defense, and continues to support anti-black racism in the judicial system. Her new trial is still scheduled to begin Dec 8th.

Marissa needs your voices and support more than ever!
Standing Our Ground Week of Action is still on!
July 25-Aug 1: LET’S TAKE ACTION!

'No one ever said that the goal was full integration of these populations,' David Von Spreckelsen, senior vice president at Toll Brothers, another developer specializing in luxury residencies, told The Real Deal in 2013. ‘So now you have politicians talking about that, saying how horrible those back doors are. I think it’s unfair to expect very high-income homeowners who paid a fortune to live in their building to have to be in the same boat as low-income renters, who are very fortunate to live in a new building in a great neighborhood.’

^ Are you fucking kidding me?!

wow really? what the fuck do y’all think is gonna happen if you use the same door as my poor Black ass? you think you might be forced to pay a living wage?

This sounds like a sneaky segregation/ Jim Crow reboot. How many Black & Brown folk y’all think are gonna be using that rich door instead of the “poor” one. Fuck these crackers, man.

^^^This exactly what is is. Except it’s not even “sneaky” this shit is blatant.

Yvette Stevens at 16 years old after befriending activist and Chicago native Fred Hampton in 1967 joined the Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party. Her duties were to hit them streets and sell the Black Panther newspaper and she also helped start the free breakfast for children program in Chicago. She states “”I saw what they were doing and it seemed to me that they were making sense.” In 1969 she left the Black Panther Party,she states “”I acquired a gun at one time and right then I realised it was not really for me…” A Yoruba priest at the Afro-Arts Theatre she attended gave her a new, very long name: Chaka Adunne Aduffe Yemoja Hodarhi Karifi. Only the Chaka stuck and with a marriage to Hassan Khan she had become CHAKA KHAN.
