“This is the most transparent administration in history,” Obama recently said. The backlog of unanswered Freedom of Information Act records requests at the end of the 2014 numbered more than 200,000 — up 55 percent from the previous year. It’s new record since Bush era.

I DON’T HATE WHITE PEOPLE.
I hate the system of white supremacy that gives them asymmetrical power & unmerited privilege. 

I DON’T HATE COPS.
I hate the pattern of police brutality that systematically harasses & kills black people & other people of color with impunity.

I DON’T HATE SOLDIERS.
I hate the horror of war that terrorizes the most politically and economically vulnerable among us.

I DON’T HATE RICH PEOPLE.
I hate the system of capitalism that creates an elite 1% at the expense of the rest of us.

It is precisely because of my love for humanity that I get enraged at system’s that prevent people from flourishing & being free.

It’s frustrating to see my righteous anger at unjust systems interpreted as hatred for individuals, but it’s more frustrating to see the oppressed suffer while those maladjusted to injustice remain silent.

I WON’T BE SILENT. SILENCE IS VIOLENCE.

Gabriella Calhoun - Wiley College Honors Student (2013)

Gabriella Calhoun was beaten severely by members of the Bloomington, IL police department after following a male friend who being detained by police without any reason. She was charged initially, but was later acquitted of all charges.

Concerning Natalia Kills

This will be the only comment I make about her, and then I will make no more.

Do not message her, comment on her Instagram, Facebook, twitter, to tell her how much she sucks. Do not hate on her publicly. This is attention. This gives her value. She’s getting MORE recognition now she’s not on the show than when she WAS.

If you want her career to end, then do NOTHING. Give her NOTHING. Do not buy her album. Do not comment on her social media posts. Do not talk about her ever again. If she has nothing, she is nothing.

That is the message bullies need to learn. Inappropriate behavior makes you insignificant, and people who are nothing GET nothing.

C: White ppl never cease to amaze me with their double standards. They think the Black Panthers, Brown Berets, and Yellow Peril are racist. These groups took care of their communities when the government wouldn’t. They stand up for our rights. They’re not dragging white folks from their beds and stringing them up in trees. They’re not burning crosses on their lawns. They’re not burning down CHURCHES.
