Run the Jewels drop some major truth a year after Ferguson

“Riots work.” At least, that’s according to Run the Jewels. In a video exclusive to the BBC, Killer Mike discussed how the events that unfolded on the streets of Ferguson last year forever changed the city for the better. And Ferguson’s own law enforcement actually agrees.


Thousands Of New York Protesters Rally In Solidarity With Balitmore’s Freddie Gray

NEW YORK – A New York police officer was hurt and at least a dozen people were arrested Wednesday as thousands of protestors gathered in support of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old Baltimore black man who was fatally injured in police custody this month.

Demonstrators flooded open spaces around Union Square, chanting and holding signs protesting Gray’s death from spinal injuries. His funeral was Monday, the day mostly peaceful protests in Baltimore turned into mayhem, with 20 police officers hurt, more than 200 arrested and buildings and cars set ablaze. The NYPD officer’s injuries appeared minor. The Associated Press reported that police detained at least a dozen people.

Can we please talk about how one of the kids stomping the cop car was encouraged by his parents to turn himself in and now he is facing eight misdemeanor charges, life in prison, and a $500,000 bail?

Meanwhile the six cops that murdered Freddie Gray still haven’t been indicted.


This is what those “activists”, the self serving false martyrs, those who spread an ideology of perpetual victimhood don’t want you to see.

Don’t let yourself be fooled by the archaic childlike fantasy of “rebels” vs “the empire” because it just isn’t reality.

Remember when white people got mad over the Emancipation Proclamation, then looted and burned down an orphanage that housed at any given time between 600 and 800 Black children (some of whom are pictured in the photo above)?

“On the 13th July at 4 PM, an infuriated mob … surrounded the premises of the [Colored Orphan] Asylum and 500 of them entered the house … they deliberately set fire to it … simply because it was the home of unoffending colored orphan children.”

“Last night I saw things that sickened me, and made me incredibly proud of Cleveland. These two lines were on opposite sides of me. Not once did the men and women from the line in the top photo get violent. They didn’t even insult the police officers. They simply wanted justice. And I cannot blame them.

On the other side of me was like after line of police officers and state troopers all dressed in roit gear. Despite there being no riot. I saw these men surge out and snatch up and arrest innocent men and women. I saw them arrest journalists. I saw and felt them beat and batter innocent people.

Despite what we faced, and have faced, I have found the human spirit is alive. And we are not afraid. I am proud of Cleveland for standing up for what’s right. And I am proud of us for keeping things mostly peaceful. I hope that one day we will get our justice.”

I am absolutely disgusted at the lack of coverage about the London Riots right now. The British people do not deserve a tory government that people DID NOT VOTE FOR.

People who are saying that it is fair, you’re wrong. Is it fair that 1 million people voted Green to get 1 seat, yet 10 million tory votes get 300+ seats? Is it fair that people are getting injured, arrested, and victimised for protesting it? Is it fair that the BBC refuses to report on it, because the government controls them?

No. My heart goes out to the people in London. If I was near to there I would be with you in body, but unfortunately I can only be there in spirit.

“ Korean-Americans in Los Angeles refer to the event as Sa-I-Gu, meaning “four-two-nine” in Korean, in reference to April 29, 1992, which was the day the riots started. The riots prompted various responses from Korean-Americans, including the formation of activist organizations such as the Association of Korean-American Victims, and increased efforts to build collaborative links with other ethnic groups.” -Wikipedia

To be clear, there’s no “right response” to police disproportionately killing black people — other than for police to stop disproportionately killing black people. But if we’re going to talk about theft, we really need to talk about the theft that’s been plaguing Baltimore for years: the millions of dollars stolen from black home buyers by large financial institutions.
