bundy in oregon

You have to read this article about the so called stand-off in Oregon with Bundy Jr. at the helm (Link Below).

I have so many questions like; how is land that was “acquired” in the 1800s rightfully theirs (We won’t even talk about the fact that technically it was the Natives’ land)?

The reason they (#Bundy and his #Terrorist Gang) THINK they have the right to it is because of a law during the 1800s that allowed people to live on land for at least 5 yrs then claim it as their own. That law was later changed in 1976.

This fact makes a great case about the existence of #WhitePrivilage and why #Blacks in #America are due #reparations. Because in the 1800s we were still slaves, we could not pick a piece of land and claim it as our own because we couldn’t own property, hell, we WERE the property or #Chattel.

This is just ONE way that some Whites have been able to build wealth and pass it on to their descendants. So when people who are still benefiting from unfair practices that happened way-back-when say we should get over #slavery, I say, give me my damn 40 acres and my freakin mule and then we’ll talk.

E-mails & Ferguson

Posted on Updated on

Don’t you just love the 21st Century? The advancement of technology and the continued push to defend free speech while fighting for transparency? We need more of if, don’t you think? Transparency that is.

These e-mails sent by Ferguson police and officials are pretty transparent. They were discovered during the investigation done by the Department of Justice. Almost unbelievable, but not quite.

Let’s see how people defend these actions, documented and sealed with a stamp from one of the greatest technological inventions of our times, e-mail.

Here are the seven emails the Justice Department uncovered, all of which come from current employees and were apparently sent during work hours:

  • A November 2008 email said President Barack Obama won’t be president for long because ‘what black man holds a steady job for four years.’
  • A March 2010 email mocked African Americans with horrible stereotypes about their families and how they speak. One line of the email read, ‘I be so glad that dis be my last child support payment! Month after month, year after year, all dose payments!’
  • An April 2011 email depicted President Obama as a chimpanzee.
  • A May 2011 email said, ‘An African-American woman in New Orleans was admitted into the hospital for a pregnancy termination. Two weeks later she received a check for $5,000. She phoned the hospital to ask who it was from. The hospital said, “Crimestoppers.”‘
  • A June 2011 email said a man wanted to obtain ‘welfare’ for his dogs because they are ‘mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have no frigging clue who their Daddies are.’
  • An October 2011 email had a photo of a bare-chested group of dancing women, apparently in Africa, with the caption, ‘Michelle Obama’s High School Reunion.’
  • A December 2011 email made jokes based off offensive stereotypes about Muslims.” ~ G. Lopez, vox.com
