I just gotta ask: exactly how cowardly ARE all of these racist, armed White men?
Literally, from "dehumanizing stares" from a 14yr old teen
to loud music, to seeking help after an accident, to walking towards someone or even just walking away from someone…racists and gun creeps™ (particularly in Florida) all seem to be trigger happy & afraid of their own damn shadows
I can almost guarantee you that the Black jurors are in a state of disbelief that they are having to fight tooth & nail to explain to the other jurors that, no, there really was no good reason for Michael Dunn’s drive by shooting and, no, loud music actually isn’t a life threatening situation. I really hope that they don’t tire out and give in like B-29 aka “Maddy” did
A hung jury will give the state a second shot at Dunn (although, twice now, in two Stand Your Ground cases, Angela Corey and her prosecution team have flatly refused to openly address what’s at the very heart of this case: abject racism. Dancing around Dunn’s proven hatred of Black people is beyond problematic. It’s infuriatingly frustrating, and it may cause a miscarriage of justice just as it did in the Zimmerman trial…but avoiding attacking Dunn as a racist is actually no different—at all—than how waayyy too many non-Black Americans tend to treat racism IRL: by not talking about it and pretending it isn’t at play. I’m no lawyer, but if Angela Corey and the state of Florida can prosecute & imprison Marissa Alexander for firing a warning shot into a wall without actually injuring anyone, then they also could have charged Michael Dunn with a hate crime)
Existing while Black should not be a legally sanctioned reason to be murdered in cold blood and this needs to stop
I hope Jordan Davis and his family get the justice they all deserve
Closing thought: don’t avoid jury duty
THE SHEEP THOUGH
the manatee though
The ostrich tho
Honestly who is even in charge over at DC/WB? Not comic book fans that’s for sure.
Let’s rock Veterans Day with a little Hendrix, as in paratrooper Jimi Hendrix of the 101st Airborne Division stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Hendrix is seen here with long-time friend and future sideman Billy Cox.
This will be last posting for tonight. …I beg and plead some of y’all don’t judge me or attack me on this….at this time and even past, present, and future I am walking on “Faith” I only told my brother this thought and no I am makin it public…as I read of Peter walking on water out to Jesus I did something that is rare against traditional teachings…I thought and asked questions….don’t get me wrong I have “Faith” but its different from what a lot you may think…when I read the story I thought “look at this man going against all knowledge of man…we can’t walk on water and during a storm! Dude is crazy!!!” But it lead me to think deeper….in life we are taught and told a lot and just accept it as fact without looking into ourselves and researching but as I read a look at this illustration I was lead to think, “peter went against all he knows, what he was told and his teachings to seek a greater truth and possibilities) adding those thoughts to my life I began to question and seek the truth myseld rather than just take what parents, family, teachers, religious leaders, so on tell me as “right” and not saying they are wrong or i am right but I took a step off the boat of institutional knowledge and began to walk on water during a storm…scared and unsure I walked a path no normal man has walked…walking to an out stretched hand saying ‘i have what you seek but you have to make the move and journey’” now I as I say and post this I am open to all comments and even being wrong in my interpretation because I also through all my readings and thoughts one thing I find common is “you have to let go of the fear of being wrong, how else can you be corrected or guided if you are belief in your mind that you are omnipotent? “….well goodnight folks and I will say one the saying I’m trying to coin…”that nigga said some THINK! He got me thinking” ;)
