life hack: get a tattoo. if the people at the job interview notice it and look concerned, laugh a little and explain “it’s just temporary.”  months later if your boss asks why you lied and said it was a temporary tattoo, stare off into the distance and whisper with a tremulous voice the poor excuse for truth your subconscious has been fighting for its entire insignificant existence: “everything is temporary.”

Tulsa, Oklahoma near the original Black Wall Street.

Just sad

I guess that meme of DaQuan—the one y’all thought was funny—came true mhmmm 😒

These people

  • kicked their daughter out (left her at a homeless shelter)
  • found out she had left the shelter to live with a guy
  • tracked them down at 9 at night to yell at her
  • shot her unarmed boyfriend (killing him)
  • shot at her after she ran to hide in the bushes
  • shot at the bf’s 13 yr old brother (hitting him in the arm)
  • fled the scene 
  • were allowed to turn themselves in
  • were put on PAID suspension

Such bullshit

Attempted murder (and shooting at minors!)  only gets paid leave. The more one scratches the surface..

I like can’t even process the amount of racism and violence that has suddenly spiked. Not that it’s not like it was never happening but fucking hell I’m seeing a new story everyday about some child of color getting gunned down like an animal while white guys that shoot up schools and movie theaters get probation because “they where so mentally ill.” I hate the world

This happened earlier this month. Both parents are members of the Tulsa police force.

Both are held at the Tulsa jail, police chief Chuck Jordan said, but are confined in an area away from other inmates they may have come into contact with on the job.”

Yeah wow that’d be so scary for them.

The article also cites two of the killers’ neighbors who, naturally, call them “wonderful” and praise their parenting. Further down in the article, it says there “were no incident reports” for the victim at the homeless shelter, because that’s totally relevant information.

The lynching of Jesse Washington.

Washington was beaten with shovels and bricks,was castrated, and his ears were cut off. A tree supported the iron chain that lifted him above the fire. Jesse attempted to climb up the skillet hot chain. For this, the men cut off his fingers.

Jesse was 15.

1916.

This is only one of the many images I see when I think of racism.

White followers and white people in general: Take a long hard look at this picture. Take a long hard look at the spectators to this abhorrent crime. The people who were behind the gruesome death of this 15 year old boy.

This is why Black people cannot just ‘get over it’.

This is why we are ‘whining’ and ‘complaining’ so much.

This is why you, white people, cannot say the word, nigger.
