After being shot by police officers in Pittsburgh, Pa Leon is now paralyzed and wheelchair bound. He was stopped and wrongly identified as someone he was not. When he fought for his right to not exit his car an officer jumped into his car and shot him multiple times.

Leon could have died. If you are in the Pittsburgh area stop by for this rally on Friday. He stands as a living Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin and many more.

  • Dad:You don't know what happened, you weren't there. You cant tell me anything.
  • Me:I was watching live streams, I was contantly seeking out new information. I was keeping up to date and looking at mutliple sources for information. You got all your information from Fox News.
  • Dad:You're wrong. You are so wrong.
VERY FUCKING IMPORTANT.

As an atheist, latino, and pansexual, i have been looked down on by society a lot of my life. But i still know that these fucking supreme court people and kkk and white supremacists are horrible excuses for people. so let me ask you this. How does society consider me worse than a straight white man who can look at another human being they don’t know and think to themselves, “I should kill them.”?

ANTONIO MARTIN WAS NEVER GIVEN MEDICAL ATTENTION.
NOW, I WANT PEOPLE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO.
It is of US Marines firing on a bus of Taliban fighters. Before they started recording, the Marines had been taking fire from a place they couldn’t see when this bus sped up behind them. The bus-guys had guns and plenty of ammo (you can hear the rounds exploding as the bus burns) and drove up on the unit with the clear intent to kill them. The Marines acted accordingly and lit them tf up. They were justified. But that’s not what’s up for debate.
US MARINES, THE MOST LETHAL BRANCH OF FIGHTERS THE US HAS TO OFFER, GAVE TERRORISTS MEDICAL ATTENTION AFTER SHOOTING THEM THE FUCK UP.
AND EVEN DROVE THEM TO GET FURTHER TREATMENT.
SO WHY DO TERRORISTS, PEOPLE THAT KILL AMERICANS, REGARDLESS OF RACE, GET BETTER MEDICAL ATTENTION AFTER-THE-FACT THAN AN 18 YEAR OLD BLACK KID ON OUR OWN SOIL? FOR INTEL ON WHO’S SHOOTING THEM? SURE. BUT FOR A BLACK KID TO NOT BE ALLOWED TO LIVE? WHY?
ASK YOURSELF THAT.

Conversation with my girlfriend about all the shit going on, thought I'd share because this part seems really powerful.

My girlfriend (black): I’m just scared. Every time I see a police car I want to turn away or tighten my seat belt.

Me (white): I can’t even say I know how that feels, and I think that’s what upsets me the most.

Being Black

Lord, Lord,
Why did You make me Black?
Why did You make me someone
The world wants to hold back?

Black is the color of dirty clothes;
The color of grimy hands and feet.
Black is the color of darkness;
The color of tire-beaten streets.

Why did you give me thick lips,
A broad nose and kinky hair?
Why did You make me someone
Who receives the hatred stare?

Black is the color of a bruised eye
When somebody gets hurt.
Black is the color of darkness.
Black is the color of dirt.
How come my bone structure’s so thick;
my hips and cheeks are high?
How come my eyes are brown
and not the color of the daylight sky?

Why do people think I’m useless?
How come I feel so used?
Why do some people see my skin and think I should be abused?

Lord, I just don’t understand;
What is it about my skin?
Why do some people want to hate me
And not know the person within?

Black is what people are “listed”,
When others want to keep them away.
Black is the color of shadows cast.
Black is the end of the day.

Lord, You know, my own people mistreat me;
And I know this just isn’t right.
They don’t like my hair or the way I look
They say I’m too dark or too light.

Lord, Don’t You think it’s time
For You to make a change?
Why don’t You re-do creation
And make everyone the same?

(God answered:)

Why did I make you black?
Why did I make you black?

Get off your knees and look around.
Tell Me, what do you see?
I didn’t make you in the image of darkness.
I made you in the Likeness of ME!

I made you the color of coal
From which beautiful diamonds are formed.
I made you the color of oil,
The black-gold that keeps people warm.

I made you from the rich, dark earth
That can grow the food you need.
Your color’s the same as the panther’s
Known for (HER) beauty and speed.

Your color’s the same as the Black stallion,
A majestic animal is he.
I didn’t make you in the Image of darkness
I made you in the Likeness of Me!

All the colors of a Heavenly Rainbow
Can be found throughout every nation;
And when all those colors were blended well,
YOU BECAME MY GREATEST CREATION.

Your hair is the texture of lamb’s wool
Such a humble, little creature is he.
I am the Shepherd who watches them.
I am the One who will watch over thee.

You are the color of midnight-sky,
I put the stars’ glitter in your eyes.
There’s a smile hidden behind your pain
That’s the reason your cheeks are high.

You are the color of dark clouds formed
when I send My strongest weather.
I made your lips full so when you kiss
the one you love they will remember.

Your stature is strong; your bone structure, thick
to withstand the burdens of time.
The reflection you see in the mirror…
The Image looking back at you is MINE!
