“About a third of our population is African American; African Americans have a higher incidence of maternal mortality. So, if you correct our population for race, we’re not as much of an outlier as it’d otherwise appear. Now, I say that not to minimize the issue but to focus the issue as to where it would be. For whatever reason, people of color have a higher incidence of maternal mortality.”
There is no clearer way to say they they believe Black Lives Don’t Matter. Bill Cassidy wants you to know he only cares about the white population.
And then there’s the “for whatever reason” people of color die more in childbirth. Just sweep that right under the rug. - The reason is they don’t have access to the care they need because you defund things like planned parenthood and make access impossible.

That's how much they care.
*mentioned in a different post but yes, just like in 2020, in 2021, the number one cause of death of active duty officers was covid. 444 deaths of this number Amy is throwing around were covid-related.

The family of Pacifique Niyokwizera is suing the City of Quebec and its police force for $180,000 after the young Black man was injured during a police intervention last fall.
On Nov. 27, Service de police de la ville de Québec (SPVQ) officers were filmed striking and kicking snow in the face of then 18-year-old Niyokwizara while he was being restrained on the ground outside the Dagobert night club.
His family alleges the officers held Niyokwizera down and "beat him until he suffered a concussion and significant swelling in the face, including a bloody and swollen eye," according to the statement of claim obtained by Radio-Canada.
Niyokwizera's mother and two sisters are claiming a total of $180,000 from Quebec City and the SPVQ for injuries, troubles, stress and inconveniences thar resulted from the arrest, according to the statement of claim.
The video of the altercation was shared widely on social media at the time, reigniting discussions of racial profiling and the use of force during police interventions.

Tw: genocide, white supremacy
I know this is sudden to say but black people and followers, even passerbys here on this blog, I just wanna say we need to be safe and rely on each other in this time of crisis. Recently there have been more reports of shooting and hate crimes by white supremacists and those who carry out their ideologies, especially on the basis of this "great replacement" or "white genocide" nonsense.
We can't just be "getting ours and leaving" or saying "sucks for you bye" we need to look out for each other! This is an active genocide on black people as a whole! So when they messing with one of us they're definitely going for all of us! I'm not saying throw yourselves into danger or become martyrs but if you can do something please find it in yourself to do so.
I'm always so angry at this country for everything it's done, everytime I hear the news it's like someone is trying to take us back to Jim Crow. It's set us up to fail and yet it preaches to us about hard work, we cannot let it do that. We can't ever let it break us.
Please please stay safe.

So my situation has gotten a bit harder. So ive been applying to jobs and am waiting to schedule interviews. I had to get groceries today so that I could have essentials to make meals and now I dont have any money to hold me over until I get hired. I had to reschedule an interview today which is going to push back how soon I’ll get hired. If anyone can share or spread this around for me that’d be great. I just need money to make sure I can eat until I get a steady form of income which should be soon.

Yes I deleted the rest of the pictures because I was sick of people thinking this post was some sort of Holy Grail
So since this post has drawn so much attention; yet the people who came to visit it never spent one moment looking at the blog that it was from; I honestly think almost 75,000 people being blocked is quite honestly enough.
So I am taking the ultimate enjoyment in reducing this piece of shit to zero fucks given
To each and every single one of you pos, 10 times that's right I said it
75,000 insensitive stupid ass mother fuckers who reblogged this God damn joke without getting the concept.. Really?
Yeah, now you go looking for somebody to talk to your ancestors cuz me and mine are sitting over here having tea

So Ryan Coogler (Black Panther director) was cuffed and escorted to a police car for trying to withdraw money from his own bank account. Whole body cam footage is on TMZ. Now, what pisses me off is how many of the comments I saw were “good thing he was calm” and “good on him for staying calm” like some sort of pat on his head for being a good boy and not escalating the situation while being humiliated. These people haven’t learned anything, have they? Stop blaming black people for lashing out at their dehumanization.

They’d flush $20,000 dollars down the drain, rather then have a shred of humanity.

Remember when Republicants screamed bloody murder about someone returning fire during BLM protests?
Tumblr media
Turns out police were driving around in unmarked vehicles randomly shooting people and Jaleel returned fire after being shot by them.
Imagine you’re standing on the side of the street or walking down the street and suddenly a minivan drives by with the side door pulled open and starts firing rounds at you.
No identification on the vehicle. No verbal identification by the police. Just racist cops being racist thugs and hurting/maiming/killing as many citizens as they can - then acting like snowflakes after a citizen responds with appropriate force to their murderous intent.
Details about the police involved here:

Since the news is covering this up... blow this shit up.
The United States has been found guilty of 5 cases of genocide by the UN as of October 23rd.
The UN International Tribunal of Human Rights Abuses Against Black, brown, and Indigenous Peoples had a 2 day hearing and found the United States guilty of 5 counts of genocide for Police Killings, Mass Incarceration, Prisoners of War, Environmental Racism, and Public Health Inequities.
After having heard the testimony of numerous victims of Police Racism, Mass Incarceration, Environmental Racism, Public Health Inequities and of Political Prisoners/Prisoners of War, together with the expert testimonies and graphic presentations, as well as the copious documentation submitted and admitted in the record, the Panel of Jurists find the U.S. and its subdivisions GUILTY of all five counts. We find grounds that Acts of Genocide have been committed.
Give acts of genocide against Black, Brown, and Indigenous peoples.

Today in Black Excellence: Dapper Dan—the underground fashion icon who made history as the first Black designer to receive CFDA’s lifetime achievement award.
“I don’t give a damn about failure. I was born part of failure. We are the phoenix—all of us here in America, every black man, woman, and child are part of the phoenix, still rising from those ashes. All my life is about getting knocked down and getting back up. I don’t care. It’s fun!”—Dapper Dan.
What’s Dapper Dan’s story?
Born Daniel Day on August 8, 1944, in Harlem, New York City, into a working-class family. By 13, he was making thousands a day after teaching himself gambling. By the 70s, Dan first sold items out of his car, and in 1982, the iconic Dapper Dan’s Boutique had its grand opening —open 24/7.
Dan is self-taught—from his fabrics and leather printing, to his creations of unique textiles featuring Louis Vuitton and Gucci logos. His designs became synonymous with 80s hip-hop—but Dan was neglected by the fashion world, and his illegal use of major label logos led to police raids. Local attention became Global; European luxury fashion companies like Fendi caught wind and promptly took legal action. Dapper Dan’s Boutique was shut down in 1992. Ever the hustler, he continued working underground.
How did he come to win the CFDA award?
Ironically, to say the least, and on his own terms in true Dapper Dan style. Fans were outraged when they noticed Gucci steal one of his classic designs for a major show. The coat was first made for Olympian Diane Dixon, and she posted on Instagram: “Give Dapper Dan his credit. He did it first in 1989!” Incredibly, Gucci accepted its wrongdoing and sparked his career into new life when it offered a partnership.
At age 77, he made history as the first Black fashion designer honored with the CFDA’s Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award. He is also the first designer to receive the honor without ever doing a solo fashion show. Truly the epitome of Black excellence.
Original portrait by Tumblr Creatr @patiencelekienart
There’s a quote by Faith Cummings that says, “We still struggle to garner a seat at the table. Even though we’ve oft built the table ourselves.” As a Black Creative, this is a reality many of us face. And Dapper Dan is a modern representation of just that—Black Excellence. He exemplifies how and why our contributions to culture often define culture. It was an honor dedicating this piece to him, as an extension of my gratitude and appreciation for the path he has paved for all Black Creatives. Thank you Dapper Dan.
