i am filled with love and admiration and respect for my brothers and sisters in gaza, who celebrate in defiance of this racist settler colony whose goal is to crush them and their very will to live completely. this is a victory for gaza, this is a victory for the resistance that fought a military power in to submission. i am not in gaza but i too am celebrating life and resistance and ‘symbolic’ victories today.

Yesterday 50 Harris-Stowe State University (HBCU)  Black Male Scholars headed to Ferguson to welcome the elementary school students for their first day back to school.

The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says “State” instead of “Country” (the Framers knew the difference - see the 10th Amendment), was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the southern states, which was necessary to get Virginia’s vote. Founders Patrick Henry, George Mason, and James Madison were totally clear on that … and we all should be too.

Besides Michael Brown, Whom Else Does The New York Times Call “No Angel”?

zuky:

Here’s who comes up in Vanity Fair’s search of people the New York Times has called “no angel”:

  • Al Capone, white mobster
  • James “Whitey” Bulger, white convicted murderer
  • Donald Manuel Paradis, white motorcycle gangster on death row
  • Erwin Rommel, Nazi field marshal
  • Clayton Lockett, white convicted murderer and rapist
  • Larry Flint, white pornographer
  • Eric Harris, white Columbine serial killer

Who else does the Times label “no angel”?

  • Samuel Spencer, Black victim of murder by four white men
  • Magic Johnson, Black basketball player
  • Michael Jackson, Black musician

Yeah. You do the math.

CNN: FBI given audio recording of Darren Wilson allegedly firing 11 times at Michael Brown
Aug. 26 2014
The Federal Bureau of Investigations has obtained an audio recording that allegedly captures 18-year-old Michael Brown’s fatal shooting at the hands of Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson, CNN reported on Monday.
CNN mentioned that it has not independently verified the recording, which was given to the bureau by a Ferguson resident. In the audio, the unidentified man can be heard telling someone, “You’re so pretty” while 11 gunshots are heard in the distance — seven in one burst, then a pause, followed by four more shots.
“He was in his apartment, talking to a friend on a video chat,” the man’s attorney, Lopa Blumenthal, told CNN. “He heard loud noises and at the time, he didn’t ven realize the import of what he was hearing until afterwards, and it just happened to have captured 12 seconds of what transpired outside of his building.”
Wilson shot and killed Brown on Aug. 9, setting off a series of protests in the community and around the country criticizing police-involved shootings. A lawyer for Brown’s family said an autopsy revealed that Brown was shot six times during the encounter.
Several witnesses have come forward saying Wilson shot Brown after the younger man ran away from Wilson following an altercation during a traffic stop.
Ferguson police have argued that Brown tried to get into Wilson’s patrol vehicle. Wilson has yet to be arrested in connection with the shooting, which has angered demonstrators and critics of the department.
