innocent children

Tyre King's grandma speaks out after her 13-yr-old grandson was killed by cops

My heart bleeds when I see parents of innocent children killed by the police! This woman saw the death of her own grandson! I think she has lost the meaning of life!

So much blood and hatred. We have to make a change.

He didn’t deserve to die… RIP, Tyre…


In popular media, amazon tribes typically abandon or kill their male babies. Which is not only horrific(yes lets make the all woman culture kill innocent children), it’s also transmisogynistic. After all, women can have penises too and my Amazons are not TERFS.

Of course, there’s only one person who can determine their gender (that person themselves). So as the child grows up in the culture, and if the culture is an open and understanding one, they probably have a good grasp on their gender by the time they ‘come of age’. This can be an arbitrary number but I’m thinking 12-14. And so the girls stay with the tribe, the boys leave (typically to a friendly village), and non-binary and multi-gender folks are welcome to stay or go, whichever they choose.

And if later in life, a brother returns as a sister? Well, she’s most certainly welcome.

Oh my god her post is the most over-exaggerated melodramatic thing I’ve ever read. Like I know you wanna be a victim so bad but no one’s planning to “beat” or “kill” you, or the lot of you. And when children and minors are a large group of the ones negatively impacted by your “”””lifestyle””” they have every right to speak up about it. No one’s being “intolerant” or “perpetuating intolerance” towards people differently from them, people “living peacefully” as you put it. They’re speaking out against something that harms others, speaking out against something that harms THEM, speaking out against something that sexualizes innocence and children and perpetuates this pedophiliac society we’re currently living in. You can’t play victim when you’re actively engaged in something that plays a huge part in creating victims and instead of listening to the people that are actually hurt by this, you instead take the defensive side and start preaching to them about why they shouldn’t be. You can’t play victim when you want to silence other victims. 

I’m doing research on child beauty pageants for an assessment and I’m reading an academic article from 1998 and it literally said innocence in children is only applied to white middle class girls. Whoever wrote this article was woke af 

“Black people your a fuckin joke!”

Hi, I’m Peggy Hubbard, by now, you guys already know what happened in St. Louis last night. Police officers looked at those – uh… pretty much what they did is they went to execute a warrant for an arrest for a very very bad guy. When they came to get him, instead of going peacefully, having his day in court, he decides to pull out another stolen gun, shoot at the police, police shot back, and he was killed. Within the same time frame news broke out about a nine year old girl in Ferguson died in the drive by shooting in her room, doing her homework. She dies by a stray bullet to the chest.

Last night, who do you think they protested for? The thug, the criminal, because they’re hollering police brutality, are you fucking kidding me? Police brutality? How about black brutality?

You black people, my black people, you are the fucking most violent motherfuckers I have ever seen in my life! A little girl is dead.

You say, Black Lives Matter? Her life matters, her dreams matter, her future mattered. Her promises mattered. It mattered.

Yet you trifling motherfuckers are out there tearing up the neighborhood I grew up in. I was born and raised there by a single mother with eight kids. This woman raised eight kids by herself, she lost one, one. Because that boy did not listen and died by the gun.

You want to be upset about black lives? You want to be upset about police brutality? There is real police brutality out there. I will give you that. But night, after night, after night on Channel 4, Channel 2, Channel 5, Channel 30, Channel 11 [and the] St. Louis Post-Dispatch: murder, murder, murder, murder. Black on black murder.

But yet you assholes are out there tearing up your own shit – it’s not your shit it’s other people’s (shit) for a criminal, for a thug. Bailing out criminals and thugs.

Let me tell you something. I got a kid locked up. Oh yeah, I put him there. I turned his ass in. Yes I did because you know what- I’m a strong black woman. I am a black mother. I told my children that if you (fuck) up, if you go to jail, I am not getting you out. You will stay there. You will do the time. I am not putting nothing on your books. I ain’t coming to visit you. I ain’t sending you magazines. I’m not doing shit for you because I did everything I could for you out here and yet you chose to go in there… fuck you!

I’m from the Madea school of hard knocks, fuck you.

If you don’t care about me and your father working and putting in time and effort to raise you and to be there for you. To go to every function, everything that you were interested in. We took note of – we nurtured, we encouraged and yet your stupid ass ends up in jail.

You belong exactly where you are. Don’t drop the soap. That is what I told my son. Don’t drop the soap.

You guys need to stop. You’re hollering this black lives matters (bullshit).

It don’t matter. You’re killing each other. What the fuck – White people don’t care. They don’t care. Save us some tax dollars. I need new parts for my Harley. If you want to die, die. Go ahead and knock yourself out.

Your life does not matter. If it doesn’t matter to you then it sure the fuck doesn’t matter to us. That is just – that is just the truth of the reality. If you don’t care; we don’t care. If you don’t give a damn about your life. Why the fuck should we care, why should be go out and protest for your ass?

You broke the law. You’re carrying another stolen gun.

You’re yelling “Fuck the police”. “Fuck you”.

You’re shooting at the police. Police drops your ass. Oh, Poor ‘so and so’ he died due to police brutality. 127 homicides later… Y’all want to holler ‘police brutality’?

Black people your a fuckin joke!

You’re tearing up communities over thugs and criminals. You’re putting plaques in the ground over somebody who that would not stop.

He had a chance to stop. How many times is someone going to tell you to stop doing that (shit) before they do something to you?

Do you think the police are out here for fun? Do you think they’re out here for games?

They’re not going to tuck you in.

They’re not going to give you a cookie and sing you a lullaby and tuck you in.

No, they’re going to pop a cap in your ass. You shoot at them and they’re going to shoot at you. That’s just the realism of it, if you try to kill them, their job is serve and protect, not serve and die.

They went to school and never came back…

Often we think of school as a safe place for our children, and our hearts are at ease that they’ll be ok there. But that was proven wrong again on Tuesday, December 16, 2014 with the horrific acts against the innocent children of Peshawar, Pakistan. 132 children were killed mercilessly by the Taliban during their school day. Many more children and teachers were injured and are still in critical condition. What was their crime? Children are the most innocent human beings. They are just learning the world and dreaming as they go on. So why were they killed? Their parents dropped them off at school and waved them good-bye. These children entered school just like any other day in their clean uniforms and cheery smiles. Little did they know that they would face the most horrific atrocities of the time that day.

Let’s not forget those who are in pain and those who lost their beloved ones. Pray for Peshawar
