My Sweet Oubliette

This is a place where I put things to forget about them, but hopefully you remember them for me. I am a sensibly liberal intellectual rocker type who loves most forms of the arts, writing, and having a grand time gallavnting about with friends or sipping on green tea over a good book.... Or over a Gameboy game of Pokemon. I choose Bulbasaur.


Hmm?   Would you like to share that with the class?

CultureHISTORY: The Man from #Ferguson

On August 13th, when all hell broke loose in Ferguson, a local photographer captured this photo which has gone nationwide. It’s an image of a black man with dreads wearing an American flag shirt, throwing a tear gas canister back while holding a bag of chips. He later said that he was only trying to get the canister away from him and some kids standing nearby.

His name is Edward (all we know so far) and he has become sort of a folk hero. Once people found him on Twitter, the salutes have not stopped and his feed is full ‘thank yous’ and respect from around the U.S. and the world. An artist has already done a rendering as a painting. Something about this photo has captivated people beyond any other and it’s become an iconic image of the protests.
I suspect he’ll be hitting the media circuits soon. Now that he’s gone national, he was thinking of changing his handle but people convinced him to leave it as is.  Twitter: @eyeFLOODpanties.

The Howard alumni who was shot in the head made a speedy recovery and she was able to tell her side of the story. The police said that it was a drive by conducted by a group of black men and that it was fatal. They didn’t expect her to survive and talk.

Fuck the police

Yall…….Chris Hayes.. (not confirmed yet)

The police claimed there were only 3 people injured tonight hmmmm somethin don’t add up..

Oh hey, why are we believing everything we see online? I guarantee people are exaggerating stuff to get more emotional shit stirred up.

No one is looking at this with an open mind. Social justice blinders on everyone.

So we shouldn’t trust people who are actually experiencing this first hand?

Im assuming they have millions of dollars worth of equipment to fake all of the wooden and rubber pellet wounds, fake suffering from tear gas, having their own homes attacked, being falsely arrested but released after you yell cut, faking actual bullets wounds that have been perfected by make up and being threatened by trained police actors.

So would you like us to be more open minded towards the national news media that has been caught in lies after lies?

Or should we just assume those journalists that were threaten by the officers were just joking?

So are we supposed to be more open minded and say folks are faking their injuries?

So folks must being writing a whole script on police brutality.

Just shut the entire fuck up. People like you are so full of shit and I hope to goodness you are met with the same violence and threatens that these people have been forced to live with

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
