A client group was late to deposition today giving me a full three hours to myself.
In finishing an article from The New Republic, I saw yt folk being yt folk and couldn't help but chime in. Hope I ruined whole, entire days. I really wish we had our own planet.

Here's my message to some of the boards I belong to:

http://www.livefyre.com/profile/59927833/" rel="nofollow - @ Exactly. Why can't whites get a grip on their kids? Why are they so morally bankrupt as to continue to raise school shooters, theater shooters, child rapists, Wall Street crooks and polygamists with 10 year old brides. Just disgusting right?

BE&SL, NBTL, NCBL, AALF and even BHM: Do you see what we're dealing with?

They don't know how to reply. Internet trolls usually sit 24/7 in front of a pc, spewing their racist venom freely since they are sitting at the comfort of their trailer in the middle of Nowhere USA, and no one is looking.

I like the article at the New Republic. But the racists...oh my gosh. How do they do it? How do they live with themselves. I left the building and went to a coffee place so that I could use their Wifi.

Newsflash! Tomorrow in America: Black and brown police officers will begin firing on unarmed whites!! 

White parents, brothers, sisters, husbands and wives will be told to trust the process and sit down and be quiet.

Blacks and brown officers will grow even more emboldened, knowing that they are untouchable.

Officers will extend advanced thanks to the "thugs" they shoot for taking the blame for their own deaths.

Meanwhile, yt folk in these hallowed halls continue their lives as if nothing else is going on. They are so very blissfully, willfully ignorant and certain that Mike Brown deserved to die.

That's why we need to show them our power in another way:

@niecy, I know I was thinking about that. Blacks need to stick together, the Latinos did something similar a few years ago, when they wanted to prove how valuable they are to the US.

we need a list of what companies are black owned. You cant tell folk not to buy from whites if they arent given an alternative.

IA about creating a list of black owned businesses however I hope that will even make a difference. Seems like alot of black people are unfortunately all talk and no action when it comes down to actually doing something positive for our people.

Spread the word.  Sometimes we're so quick to put each other down and talk about what our community won't do..Be the change you want to see and lead.

I swear, once the elevator doors close, there is no such thing as #MikeBrown.

Dyck did try it however. He caught me in the lounge and said, "You look tired. Up all night?"

"Why yes I was Dyck. Glued to coverage about that upstate couple who kidnapped and raped the two Amish girls." He just stared at me then walked away.

Hate that fuc*er. (Please excuse me Ms. India. But you know how it is for me.)

I think the idea of a "Black Out Monday" to show our economic impact on the US economy is a great idea!  Money is the only language that people regardless of color can understand completely...

So true. So true.
I like this idea. But I'd like to see the pain be prolonged somehow.
I'll think on it.

I like the idea. I just wish there isn't so much spelling errors all on one poster. Ouch

I am going to make flyers of that and post up at my college, most of the students are black.

Perhaps we can work on lists of black owned businesses in our local areas then post for everyone to see, add to, etc.
