"The overseer rode around the plantation
The officer is off patrolling all the nation
The overseer could stop you what you’re doing
The officer will pull you over just when he’s pursuing
The overseer had the right to get ill
And if you fought back, the overseer had the right to kill
The officer has the right to arrest
And if you fight back they put a hole in your chest!”
Do not go to the liquor store on 90th and MacArthur, around 10-14 Black men will be standing out there with vans and they will try to snatch you up, the Arab dudes who own the liquor store are in on it do not go there during the night, if it wasn’t for my boyfriend being with me last night they would have got me #staywoke

Keep reblogging this guys….
Fuck the cops the ops n the fuck gov.
This made tear up for real.
And we all know the answer…
Super important to think about.
We have been dragged through so much shit until that’s all they see.
Since July 17th there has been five reported occurrences exemplifying the police and American justice system’s lack of reverence for Black life. These are the five stories that were able to attract at least minimal attention. Who knows what is going on out there covered up (like the Ferguson police is trying to do with Mike Brown’s murder), unrecorded, and unknown. In the past 23 days the police have perpetrated the humiliation, degradation, and murdering of Black dignity,souls, and people. Knowledge is power. Do not rely on mainstream media to give you the full/accurate story. They will always be complicit in the devaluing of Black life because Blackness has been criminalized in America. Please spread these stories and add any more that you know of under the hashtag #badges are the new hoods. We need to start documenting, and spreading information. They will try to silence us as they did to Ramsey Orta, and Alba Lekaj, the people who filmed the NYPD harasing and murdering Eric Garner. But united we can make a difference. Knowledge is power. Stay woke Black America, Stay woke.
Im in NY and whats crazy is these stories get reported, and then literally a day later the police come up with some reason trying to validate it. Eric Garner selling cigarettes and the naked grandmother whooping her teen granddaughter even though they were supposed to be responding to a call on the next floor.
Do y’all understand the importance here?
Remember when people in the music industry used to like each other and make cameos in each other’s videos.
And when they righteously abused the fish-eye lens? Yes. The 90s was a good time for Black people.
