I’m reminded of the speech Jesse Williams gave at the B.E.T. Awards: “We’ve been floating this country on credit for centuries, yo, and we’re done watching and waiting while this invention called whiteness uses and abuses us, burying black people out of sight and out of mind, while extracting our culture, our dollars, our entertainment like oil, black gold. Ghettoizing and demeaning our creations then stealing them, gentrifying our genius and then trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies like rinds of strange fruit.”
NEWS THAT ALREADY BROKE: America is racist. America loves Black culture, but hates Black people. Kylie Jenner, Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, and other “hip” white celebs are culture vultures. They copy us without giving us any credit, and then once they’re ready to be “respectable” white citizens, they discard our culture like spoiled food - but only AFTER they’ve gotten filthy rich off it.

Did Trump commit treason in front of Putin? Here is the moment everyone is talking about http://dlvr.it/QbrTPK
Four years ago, on July 17, 2014, brother Eric Garner was murdered by the NYPD in cold blood while he gasped “I can’t breathe,” in broad daylight, on a busy street in Staten Island.
Today Ramsey Orta, who filmed the murder, is in prison on trumped up charges as revenge for exposing the killer cops. Eric Garner’s daughter Erica is dead, at least in part because of the stress of fighting this injustice. Daniel Pantaleo, the cop who killed him with an illegal chokehold, and the other police who abetted the murder, are free.
We will not forget Eric, Erica and Ramsey, and all the other victims of this racist system. We won’t stop fighting because #BlackLivesMatter!

“Not use collective punishment as it is not fair on the many people who did nothing and under the 1949 Geneva Conventions it is a war crime.”
Wait it’s a fucking WAR CRIME?!?! I mean that might not be 100% accurate but now I gotta know
holy crap, collective punishment is a war crime.
and according to the exact legal phrasing-
No protected person may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited.
This technically counts, as students are civilians, and thus considered a “protected person”. So yes, collective classroom punishment breaks the fourth Geneva Convention, and she should be rewarded for standing up for human rights and doing her research.
Power-move: accuse your teacher of a war crime using knowledge they supplied you with
The United States apprehended nearly 49,000 family members at the U.S.-Mexico border between January and June of this year – more than twice as many as during the same time period last year.

Portland Occupy ICE begins hunger strike
By Roy St. Warren, Josh Allan and Lyn Neeley
#OccupyICEPDX continues to face off with federal agents after three weeks of developing a thriving, organized resistance with more than 50 tents, hundreds of protesters and tremendous community support. Occupiers shut down the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office here for two weeks and began a hunger strike on July 4.
Protesters are not intimidated by the cops’ use of arrests, tear gas and sharpshooters. They say they are here to stay until their demands are met: Abolish ICE, reunite immigrant families and stop incarcerating asylum seekers.
