Most people tip their landscapers, this old white Karen decided she’d try a different approach. As these landscapers finished a job, they were verbally assaulted. Racial slurs, profane language and constant repetition. I mean practice makes perfect. At one point I thought she was gonna blow her hip out she dropped it so low while yelling. This Orlando lady is crazy.
Did these guys yell back? I’m sure they yelled back or were sarcastic. Nope they kept saying have a blessed day and headed towards their turck. Like real humane people. I don’t understand the need to attack people doing their job. Just watch the video. Absolutely crazy. The men had me laughing at the end of the video though 😂.
A Mistake Led to Kids and Mom In Handcuffs on the Ground
A girls trip should be fun. A girls trip shouldn’t turn into what this became! A car full of ladies had cops stop them and guns drawn. Most of these ladies were underage. Terrible tragedy, but not unexpected with everything coming to light. These ladies were all Black. Now it makes sense.
This stop was a mistake and was supposed to be a motorcycle. Instead of double checking before they rushed the vehicle full of ladies with guns. Ordering them to the ground and handcuffing them as they are crying and saying they were scared.
The stop was defended in a statement saying that stops like this are intense and have all people in suspected vehicle removed and lying prone on the ground. Now the only issue is there is no written code to handling these stops. Meaning they can easily handle a question of stolen vehicle differently. Especially if they can see that there is a 6 year old girl in the backseat.
People question why we a Black Americans don’t feel safe around cops. But if there’s no policy on how a stop of a vehicle that MIGHT have been stolen. Guns full drawn on a vehicle they KNEW full well were full of underage girls. One of the girls stated, “It’s like they don’t care. Who am I going to call when my life is in danger?” Exactly.
They tell us not to demonize the police, but the police do it to themselves! We can’t call them and feel safe. Black police can’t even drive in uniform without being harassed! We are not safe. That’s our issue. This is why we say Black Lives Matter.
This video speaks so many truths! This officer not only preaches why she’s Black Lives Matters before blue lives matter but she also explains why cops are not of great caliber. At least a lot of them anyway. The ones that end up shooting people like Michael Ramos, George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. She says that they don’t like being questioned and get angry. They lose the training the instant they get angry.
Near the end, which I strongly urge everyone to watch the full video, she explains why she knows she was profiled. The unit that stopped her, was a unit that looked for drugs and money. NOT speeding and traffic violations. Yet they gave a ticket that is only given if an officer doesn’t like you and a ticket for texting. She wasn’t even texting. Yall just watch the video and you’ll see that blue, all, and white lives matter is just a racist counter to Black Lives Matter. We are being targeted and attacked but people refuse to see it.
This footage was released late last night and shows the events LEADING UP TO the videos we’ve already seen. It shows how Floyd ended up under the polices knee and how they approached him.
One BLARING mistake on the police’s part that I noticed right away, is that the police never ONCE even mentioned WHY they approached Floyd, DESPITE him asking multiple times why he was being approached. Secondly WHY WAS THE COP’S GUN OUT IN SECONDS OF THE MEETING. Thirdly, there was a big argument of “Floyd was drugged out”, judging from this video, Floyd was TERRIFIED, NOT DRUGGED OUT.
One could quite literally see the TERROR in his eyes. He tells them he’s been shot before, he tells them he has mental issues/battles with anxiety and claustrophobia, he tells them they aren’t listening, IN FACT before he ever hits the ground, HE TELLS THEM THAT THEY WILL KILL HIM!
What’s even more disturbing is that he himself offers to go on the ground at the end of the video. He tells them the car makes him severely uncomfortable, and asks to go on the floor. The police had already deemed him to be not a threat, and he said he would lay down. He truly just wanted to speak with the police, PROBABLY TO FIND OUT WHY HE WAS BEING ARRESTED.
Whatever you think about Floyd, whatever you think about the new video, I hope that this video helps you form a fuller picture. Even if you agree or disagree with me. Personally though, I believe the police to be in the wrong. From the very beginning of the camera rolling.
CouplePointed a Shotgun and Threatened to Kill Partygoers Including Kids
February of 2017 saw a couple raid an 8 year old black kids party with Confederate flags and a shotgun. Why talk about this now? It’s been 3 years and they were given 35 years together, so why bring it up now? Because the confederate flag as a symbol is being misunderstood.
In February of 2017, a couple and 13 others drove trucks to the party and began harassing and threatening a party for an 8 year old boy. Waving Confederate flags and pointing a shotgun at the party. Yelling racial slurs and refusing to leave.
But like I said all of them got sentenced for a total of 35 years. Jose Ismael Torres and Kayla Rae Norton were the names of the couple who led the charge. Jose was given 13 years and Kayla was given 15. The others were found guilty and given shorter charges. They violated the street gang terrorism law.
I’m bringing this up now because I’ve heard people trying to protest the banning of the Confederate flag. The flag stood for their “home” or “family.” But this flag was first flown to fight America for the rights to have slaves. This flag has been used or mentioned so many times in crimes against Black people. Before the argument comes up that bad people can fly any flag and it wouldn’t make it the flag’s purpose. This flag was made because the South didn’t want to give up slavery. I’ll let the video below speak for itself.
This is what is stands for, the oppression and degradation of black folk as a people to something lower than white folk. It stands for white folk killing black folk, for white privileged, and for the ability to abuse the penal system. It stands for my grandparents nightmares, and now mine as well. This flag stands for so much negative that I can’t find any justifiable reason for it to fly. But maybe that’s just me?
1925 saw a game that NO ONE talks about. The KKK VS The Monrovians, an all Black team! The game happened on June 21st 1925 and it opened eyes! The game was peaceful from beginning to end, surprisingly. The KKK were peaceful for a game of Baseball! Insane to think about, but it happened. 🤷🏽♂️
The Monrovians played in the “Colored Western League” for one year and they DOMINATED that year. A crazy record of 52-8. The team was named for the capital of Liberia and they would hand L’s to ANYBODY who wanted it!
During 1925 the KKK was becoming a political issue and locals were trying to kick them out of Kansas. Hmmm, wonder why? Baseball was the game back then and could help paint the kkk in a good light (if they remained peaceful). So the challenge was issued and the two teams met on the field!
The flyer advertising the game asked no one to bring, “strangleholds, razors, horsewhips, or other violent implements”, what an interesting request. People listened and on arrival, during the game, and leaving people were peaceful. In fact the stadium wasn’t even segregated or anything, there were black and white families right next to each other!
The game was pretty close. First inning it was 1-1 and by the end of the game the score was 10-8, with the Monrovians winning!!! What’s more great is that the Monrovians players weren’t found hanging days later! After this game the KKK basically were done in Kansas and were outlawed. The Monrovians disbanded after the season and most of the team joined the Kansas City Monarchs. The Monarchs then became the longest-running franchise in the Negro Leagues.
A Phased Exit is to Begin for Federal Agents in Portland
They are gone! Kinda. The Trump admin and Oregon’s governor have agreed on the much needed exit of the federal agents. The Trump admin finally agreed to have the federal agents start to leave Portland. This is after Trump speaking praise of the agents and what they were doing. This decision has come way to late and after many violent nights between protesters and agents.
So with the Trump admin on board with having the agents exit stage right, there is still a hold up. Of course. The White house and the Department of Homeland Security have said that the agents will be called back when attacks on the courthouse cease to happen.
So, this will be a phased leaving. Kate Brown, Oregon’s governor, explains, “The local Oregon officers of the Oregon State Police will provide protection for free speech and the security of the exterior of the courthouse with the Federal Protective Service. A limited contingent of federal officials, who act as building security year-round, will remain and will stay focused on the interior of the U.S. Courthouse.”
A majority will be leaving, but some will stay to protect the courthouse. This is long overdue. These people were out there KIDNAPPING dudes and the White House turned the other cheek with Trump was cheering them on. They even tear gassed Portland’s mayor! Honestly, people have been calling out the federal agents in Portland because it seemed like this was to overshadow the goal of the protests in headlines.
Again this hasn’t happened yet and it won’t happen until they (the White House) can assure the safety of the courthouse. But the plan is there. I guess that’s good news? A plan is only good when in effect. President Orange spoke on Wednesday, basically backpedaling this whole phased leaving plan. He said Portland is “very well secured” and the agents are “not leaving until they’ve secured the city.”
Honestly I’m glad they have a plan. But I’m sure it won’t be happening in the next few weeks. It’s insane to me how the White House is condoning the suffering of its people and now threatening them more. In the video you hear Trump say what he plans to do. Superb plan I might add from the Orange one himself.
3rd Time DarrenWilson Has Gotten Away With It, His Last Victim, Michael Brown
Another blow to an open wound. The protests are aimed to hold cops accountable and get convictions for the wrongful deaths they have caused. But on Thursday, the opposite has happened. No justice was given for the passing of Michael Brown. For the third time Darren Wilson, a white cop, has been investigated and the prosecutors have decided not to charge him. This man has gotten away with it THREE times! That’s ridiculous.
Just as a refresher, Michael Brown died August 9th, 2014. Wilson claims that Brown attacked him while he was in his squad car for control over his gun. Protesters at the time made statements saying that Brown had his hands up and was asking Wilson not to shoot. Officers and Wilson denied that Brown did that, but Wilson messed up. Wilson contradicted himself when he stated that once Brown turned around with his hands up, he shot him.
All together Brown was shot 12 times. 12 times. Shot in the front 6 times and then once he was surrendering, 6 more. That is insane. For Brown to have surrendered after being shot and then turn around to be shot more. After surrendering!? How is Wilson not in jail? How are they asking us why are we protesting? We have seen white mass murderers treated with more respect. This needs to end. Keep speaking up. Keep spreading the message.
Gloria went missing on July 9th, supposedly the same day she died. She was found by her 19 year old roommate THREE days later. Police ruled her death a suicide and Gloria’s roommate has been cooperative according to police.
Police made a statement, “We typically do not comment on suicides, including naming the deceased, but due to the public nature of this case we feel the need to clarify some inaccuracies.” They really don’t speak on anything though. All they really say is, ” All evidence in the case so far leads investigators to believe it was suicide.” They go on to say the coroner’s death report is consistent with suicide and the investigation is ongoing.
So here are the questions people have been asking. How was she not found for three days, in Texas, in the SUMMER? With the heat and humidity, how did people not smell the body decomposing? How was she not found even though there were frequent repairs in the garage at the time she was missing? And my own personal question. How are we supposed to TRUST the police when the ones actually doing the right thing are getting fired? Speak Gloria’s name so they know we aren’t satisfied with filler. We want the truth and we want justice.
Eight Statues were gone on last Friday morning. All of which were Confederate statues. After recent news of statues being ripped from the ground by people, speaking about the “White Live Matter” anti protesters, you’d think it was civilians who did this. NOPE. Virginia ordered their removal and they got removed overnight.
These statues sat in Virginia’s Old House Chamber, in a place of honor. Virginia House of Delegates speaker, Eileen Filler-Corn thought that was bull and with that she made the order to remove them. Damn straight. These men that were removed are idolized as heroes. These men kept slaves and fought in a war because they didn’t want to do their own labor and/or want to pay for labor. NOT TO MENTION THEY WERE TRAITORS.
They were selfish people and morons fly that flag with pride and think we shouldn’t be offended. Eileen agrees, “Virginia has a story to tell that extends far beyond glorifying the Confederacy and its participants. The Confederacy’s primary objective in the Civil War was to preserve an ideology that maintained the enslavement of human beings. Now is the time to provide context to our Capitol to truly tell the Commonwealth’s whole history.”
Obviously there was disapproval but honestly the arguments against the removal is stupid. Republican Sen. Amanda Chase had tweeted this, “Under the cloak of darkness our spineless governor takes down Virginia’s historical landmarks within the people’s capital.” Can I make a few points? Good.
Historic landmark? So, Hitler is a piece of German history, yet there is no statue honoring him or his generals. He was on the wrong side of the war doing evil things, but if there was a statue of him people would be furious. Confederate soldiers were fighting to keep slavery around. I think we can agree that slavery is terrible, right? Okay. Same with flags. The Nazi flag is a huge part of Germany. Most people here Germany and they think Hitler. So, why isn’t there Nazi flags flying. “They represent where I come from” is not true. The confederate flag is representing the ideology that slavery should be intact.
Although there has been scrutiny, there has been a lot of praise as well. Another Delegate, Lamont Bagby said, “Generations of Virginians, Americans, and visitors from around the world have been greeted by these imposing symbols of treason and white supremacy for far too long. If we are going to continue building a more inclusive and just Commonwealth, we must acknowledge and denounce the darkest parts of our nation’s history, not celebrate them.” This is an awesome act and I’m glad the government (small areas granted) is doing something in our favor. It’s great but we need arrests, convictions, and court justice for cops still on the streets for the murders of innocent Black lives. Thank you Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn.
