Wow.  They stole supplies.  SMH.

The police are raiding St. Marks Church in #Ferguson and taking all of the supplies like water & more. This place is a beautiful safe haven.

IFWT_TI_Open_Letter

The death of Michael Brown continues to loom in the air and remind many Americans of the treatment received from law enforcement. Celebrities from J. Cole to Nelly have expressed their feelings on being a black man in this society. Now, T.I. pens his emotions on the ordeal.

“America has created a monster,” T.I. writes. “We were brought to this place, unaware of our own cultures, religion and traditions, therefore, we created our own,” he continues. Truth talk.

T.I. Writes:

Look at us … America has created a monster. The result of ignoring & mishandling an already fragile spirited, recently enslaved, presently oppressed race-generation of people. Look at us. We’re the monster that now refuses to be dismissed, overlooked and ignored. We were brought to this place, unaware of our own cultures, religion and traditions, therefore, we created our own. Now look at us.

For years we’ve been crying out for the nation to address the substandard education systems and disparaging treatment of our citizens in communities across America. Our people have had an increasing lack of opportunities for generations. There have been homes broken, lives shattered and futures lost on your watch … unanswered. Look at us. How long can u expect a nation/race/generation of people to be blatantly disrespected? Spoken to and treated with arrogant tones of insignificance. Our fathers, uncles, brothers and role models were killed and imprisoned more often than educated. Now look at us. Our friends and relatives murdered and cast aside without thought, as though your human life is more valuable than ours. How long can that go on without consequence? Now look at us.

How long can u continue to pass the buck and make excuses of why u can’t do today what should have been done yester-year? Although I DO NOT support the negative responses & actions of my people in light of this tragedy … I WILL NOT condone your lack of effort to show any urgency to improve the treatment of our people, nor the living conditions in our communities. Your refusal to address these life altering issues makes events such as these seem inevitable. Although I too am at fault to a degree and I admit that I may not have all da answers… I do have a fun fact for you. Insanity is … Going about things the same way, expecting a different result. U wanna different result? U must take different action. What else do u expect? Look at us!!!

Please educate yourself about the Black Panthers,  The Brown Berets, and Yellow Peril. Learn more than standardized state educational institutions will teach you. Open your mind.

We shouldn’t leave out the American Indian Movement though.

I'm not sure what he's going to do but these revealing stories about him over the past week have given me hope that this may be the catalyst that let's him off the leash. 

We'll see...


Hi Kfoxx,
 Believe me when I say that I understand being placed in a figurative straight jacket and told to perform at peak level. 
So I know the tightrope that both Obama and Holder have to walk.
And I know that when it comes down to it, blacks are the only ones NOT allowed to cater to their own.
That being said, I hold this against them: Speak to your people. We understand code. Tell us you are with us then do what you have to do.

Every single yt person at my firm knows that coon is nowhere in my DNA.
They're playing the music and I still gotta dance, but I step on their pasty azz toes as often as I can. And they all know it.

Patrick on Ferguson: ‘Sick of unarmed, black men being shot by police’

GREENFIELD — Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick today said he is “sick of unarmed, black men being shot by police” in his first comments since a black teenager was killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., spurring riots, looting and a heavily militarized response by police.

“I’m sick of it,” Patrick said with a heavy sigh. “I’m sick of unarmed, black men being shot by police. I’m sick of the lawlessness on the streets. I think everyone is just tired of when are we going to get through with this kind of thing.”

Patrick, who made history in 2006 when he was elected the state’s first black governor — at the time, only the second black governor nationwide — said the U.S. faces painful hurdles on race relations.

“ We have a great challenge in this country acknowledging the extraordinary progress we have made on race relations — much of it in my lifetime. And at the same time, acknowledging how much remains to be done,” the governor told reporters, speaking with emotion. “You hear people from time to time who are 100 percent in one or the other of those views, that everything’s been done and nothing remains, or everything remains to be done.

“In fact,” he said, “we’re a lot further along, but there are still issues. There are still sensitivities and there are still things that … benefit from heightened sensitivity and better training.”

Patrick said he has confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder, who traveled to Ferguson today to meet with FBI agents investigating the circumstances of the shooting of Michael Brown, 18, by Officer Darren Wilson.

“I’m hopeful with the attorney general of the United States going out that federal law enforcement will be fully engaged and, I hope, bring to a decision quickly,” he said. “But that’s a really tough mission he’s set out on and I know that from some experience.”

Patrick previously headed the civil rights division of the Department of Justice under President Clinton.

Asked how he would have handled Ferguson differently, the governor said: “Well, I’m glad I don’t have to.”

I am really disappointed...

Mike's fundraiser raised U$104k in 6 days
Meanwhile, the murderer's fundraiser raised U$78k in 2 days....

I see a replay of Trayvon Martin's case happening... the murderer's fundraiser will raise millions, he will walk free and black men will continue to be killed... until the next "we had enough" death that will make the police chill for a while with the killing.
