    Let’s see if Theodore Wafer goes to prison for murdering Renisha McBride.

    Why isn’t this being publicised better??

    Because Renisha McBride was a Black woman.

  2. politwice asked:

    Oh no, I just wanted to thank you for the inspiration you gave me. I live in the south and here is called the Bible belt and being the only Jewish kid in a school can be just as hard as being a black kid. I was made fun of for fasting, and during

    WW2 lessons, the teacher said that Jews started the turmoil in Germany by banking and helping their Jewish friends with money. Haven’t you learned about how ww2 began? Black people have all the opportunity in the world because people fear being

    Called racist. I mean, look at Oprah, one of the most richest beings in the world but feels in some way oppressed because she’s black. And if a white person gets an advantage, it’s not always white privilege. Please don’t feel oppressed, embrace it.

    1. You win for the day’s worst most baseless message
    2. Oprah is one of the richest people ever but was still literally racially profiled because she’s Black
    3. "white people don’t have white privilege" "you ‘feel’ oppressed" "don’t feel oppressed"
    4. "Black people have all the opportunity in the world"

    Do we really?

    Stop with the fucking “Jewish People Have It Worse / just as bad” argument today it’s not a god damn competition, oppression isn’t fun. You also contradicted yourself. And stop invalidating Black people’s experiences with racism with literally baseless 5 year old arguments that make absolutely no sense..  What is today? Why is this happening today lol?

Chicago Police Raids Wrong House, Demands 11 Month Old Raise Hands At Gunpoint And Kills Dog
Chicago police terrorized six children in the wrong apartment, demanding at gunpoint that an 11-month-old show his hands, and telling one child, “This is what happens when your grandma sells crack,” the family claims in court.
Lead plaintiffs Charlene and Samuel Holly sued Chicago, police Officer Patrick Kinney and eight John Does in Federal Court, on their own behalves and for their children and children.
The six children were 11 months to 13 years old at the time. Plaintiffs Connie and Michelle Robinson are Charlene Holly’s daughters.
The complaint states: “On November 29, 2012 in the early evening hours Charlene Holly was in the first floor apartment at 10640 S. Prairie in the front room helping minor Child #1, Child #2, Child #4, and Child #5 rehearse songs for their church choir. Charlene was also caring for Child #3, who was 11 months old. Child #6 was in the upstairs apartment alone.
“Charlene and the children heard a loud boom outside and a voice cry out ‘Across the street!’
“Defendant Officers John Doe 1-8 burst through the door to the first floor apartment dressed in army fatigues and pointing guns at Charlene and the children. The officers yelled at Charlene and the children to ‘Get on the ground!’ The officers referred to Charlene and the children as ‘m—-f—-ers’ numerous times …
“Charlene continually asked what the purpose of the detention was,” the complaint states. “Finally, an officer produced a warrant and handed it to Charlene. The warrant was for an individual named ‘Sedgwick M. Reavers’ and the premises listed was ‘The second floor apartment located at 10640 S. Prairie Ave. A yellow brick two flat building with the numbers 10640 on the front of the building.’ In other words, the warrant clearly identified the proper location as the second floor apartment. Charlene, Samuel, and the children were in the first floor apartment …
The family claims that “the following day Charlene discovered the family dog, Samson, not in the basement where the family kept him, but in an upstairs laundry room. Samson could not have reached the laundry room without human assistance. On information and belief, defendant
Officers dragged and choked Samson from the basement with the dog pole and left him in the upstairs laundry room unattended, where he died.”
Samuel Holly also went to the police station the day after the warrantless search to complain, but “despite his numerous calls the night before, was told that he could not make a complaint and he ‘should have made a complaint last night,” the family says.

Im afraid to go anywhere near this city….

How does a child not walk away from an experience like this with a severe distrust of the police? Holy trauma conga line…
