Words of Emotion
"I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love."

— Kuba Wojewodzki, Polish journalist and comedian (via wordsthat-speak)

”The state is currently spending five times more for the education for a white child than it is fitting to educate a colored child. That means better textbooks for that child than for that child. I say that’s a shame, but my opponent says today is not the day for whites and coloreds to go to the same college. To share the same campus. To walk into the same classroom. Well, would you kindly tell me when that day is gonna come? Is it going to come tomorrow? Is it going to come next week? In a hundred years? Never? No, the time for justice, the time for freedom, and the time for equality is always, is always right now!”

"The Black Panthers have never viewed such paramilitary groups as the Ku Klux Klan or the Minutemen as particularly dangerous. The real danger comes from highly organized Establishment forces -the local police, the National Guard, and the United States military. They were the ones who devastated Watts and killed innocent people. In comparison to them the paramilitary groups are insignificant. In fact, these groups are hardly organized at all. It is the uniformed men who are dangerous and who come into our communities every day to commit violence against us, knowing that the laws will protect them.” - Huey P. Newton, Sacramento and the “Panther Bill”

#IfTheyGunnedMeDown Confronts How Minority Deaths Are Portrayed In Media

Following the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen on Saturday, and the ensuing media portrayal of his death, Twitter expressed outrage in the form of a hashtag: #IfTheyGunnedMeDown

The ones that hit me hardest are the ones of the service members because there have already been incidents—one of them being a friend of my brother’s—being gunned down in civilian gear for existing while Black, and only after is it revealed that they were in the Armed Forces.

So it isn’t just limited to civilians. No matter what we—as Black people—do, say, wear, act, speak, or accomplish, it doesn’t save us from the racist stereotypes forced on us that gets us killed.

This is why when white people complain about that Black kid that teased them one time we don’t take you seriously. Being clowned about drinking Starbuck doesn’t get you gunned down in the streets.

And I have had my own stint with racist police officers, one of whom held me at gunpoint while I was sitting on the fucking TOILET just because I happened to be in the dorm when a party was busted next door.
