The Truth Shall Set You Free

****

It’s curious how white society describes black people as thugs, welfare queens, violent criminals; yet somehow we’re required to find forgiveness when they visit horror upon us

****

****

****

****

This. He said he was there to kill black people, he massacred them, he hurled racial epithets at the survivor as he walked out. Yet you still have white pundits saying, “what was his motivation?” *Sigh*

****

****

Birds of a racist feather

****

****

Color us not shocked. Evidence enough for you, pundits?

****

****

Domestic violence does not cause you to become a racist murderer

****

****

BOOM. Spitting straight fire!

****

    “I am glad Jon Stewart speaks eloquently about tragedy, but I wish his audience would listen when black folks say the same thing first.”

    I could hug that tweet.

    Huge thanks Nerdy, these are just brilliant.

    Not sure if this has been brought up.
    Bill that was introduced to the South Carolina State Legislature:
    “SECOND AMENDMENT EDUCATION ACT OF 2015” – Highlights include-
    1. DESIGNATE DECEMBER FIFTEENTH OF EACH YEAR AS “SECOND AMENDMENT AWARENESS DAY” IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
    2. PROVIDE INSTRUCTION IN THE SECOND AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION FOR AT LEAST THREE CONSECUTIVE WEEKS IN ONE GRADING PERIOD IN EACH ACADEMIC YEAR.
    and lastly
    3.THE STATE SUPERINTENDENT OF EDUCATION SHALL ADOPT A CURRICULUM FOR TEACHING THE SECOND AMENDMENT THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED OR RECOMMENDED BY THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION.

    Here is the Bill-

      I wonder if they’ll “teach” the full scope of the 2nd Amendment, and explain why we have a military (for which we spend billions of tax dollars each year) when the 2nd Amendment was all about negating the need for a standing military… Those cowards who feel validated and stronger with their guns wouldn’t stand a day in the actual military fighting an actual war. They’re the same ones who need to strap their guns to their backs to go to Target and buy toilet paper…

        They will teach the NRA’s version of the Second Amendment, which is that everyone in the world is a threat to you, and every slight – real or imagined – should be settled with deadly gun force.

        History doesn’t matter. Facts don’t matter.

            Unfortunately, theo, it’s not just SC, however they are brazen enough to put their ignorance into their laws and admit in their official record that the NRA is their master. This b.s. is permeating this country – I hear it from my own friends and relatives. It is a national madness and if the murder of 20 first graders isn’t enough to wake this country up, I don’t know what it will take.

      corporate-owned government in a nutshell. nra, a branch of the gun manufacture and sales industry, writes laws that require children to be taught that buying guns is a citizen’s obligation. nra gets the laws passed by paying off elected officials. all neat and tidy, with a big red bow on top.

    Looking at some of the photos taken from Dylann Roof’s ‘manifesto’ ,

    I can guess that a number or republicans and racist hate-mongers, who have previously supported him and his right to carry the confederate flag, will now be offended by him stepping on and burning the American flag.

    to thee people the oppression of fellow human beings doesn’t matter but they have a revulsion to anyone who desecrates the flag

    So the dad of the SC Racist Terrorist is an abusive bat poop. So how come the News Media is not all over this?
    Now it makes sense why the son was writing in his manifesto that he didn’t learn racism from home……because abusive dad might not like it known publicly?
    Unfortunately, there again is another so called friend defending him as not being a Racist for he had “Black” friends.

        This kid learned this shit around his kitchen table. His father let him drop out of high school in the 9th grade, and bought a gun for him when he couldn’t even get past the one gun law in SC. I’d like to take the parenting of this kid and the parenting of a black kid, make a list, don’t tell the public which is black and which is white, and see how the public reacts. THAT should be illuminating.

      Why isn’t Jesse Jackson demanding that Hillary and Bill go to SC? PBO and FOTUS will probably go to the funeral if it’s not too disruptive due to needing SS and a host of snipers all around. Personally I would be happy if he brings the family to the WH for a one on one with them.

    have you folks seen this? an interview of marc maron, about maron’s interviewing the president.

    ‘ He’s a focused guy. The idea in the back of my mind is, is he disappointed, frustrated, ashamed of what he sees in the world? And really, he’s a guy that says, “If I can look at my day, look at my work, and know I’ve made the country even incrementally better, then I’m doing my job and there’s hope, and I’m optimistic.” You know, he doesn’t seem like a man that’s festering and angry. He has confidence in his ideas and wishes that things could be as collaborative as he’d like it to be — but knowing that’s not the way it’s gonna be, certainly in the situation he’s been in politically for the last eight years. He looks at any sort of progress as positive, and in the big picture, in the long term, as having an impact. ‘

    a ‘friend’ posted this from jeb’s page on facebook:

    ‘ My position on how to address the Confederate flag is clear. In Florida, we acted, moving the flag from the state grounds to a museum where it belonged. This is obviously a very sensitive time in South Carolina and our prayers are with the families, the AME church community and the entire state. Following a period of mourning, there will rightly be a discussion among leaders in the state about how South Carolina should move forward and I’m confident they will do the right thing. ‘

    i think it’s very odd that he uses the phrase ‘a museum, where it belongs’. like he’s co-opting pbo’s righteousness. however he is clearly lacking pbo’s brains and understanding of history, because it’s pretty dumb to have confidence in south carolina’s leadership.

    i see delray’s tweet about what the blk community is expected to say and do…how they …MSM…and others always call from calm…they call for calm because they know if the shoe was on the other foot…they be coming to the blk side of town and killing more blk people…

    then there is the Westboro folks coming the funeral of the deceased to try and desecrate the memories of the victims…but how is that any different than the bikers who showed up at the masjid some weeks ago..with guns and bible in hand….

    i was waiting for the bus the other day…it was not an isolated place…but there were not many people around…a group of white male college students stopped at the light ….one asked me if i was waiting at the bus stop….i did not answer…they drove off without further comment….but i felt afraid…i have never felt fear like that…this is what has happened to me…

    Like I said last night…It too much for some white folk to handle, that this killer has the same or close to the same attitude and views as they themselves have expressed or someone they love or “respect” has expressed. But hey, no way would their family do what this killer did…

    But hey, what about that grandson or nephew or young cousin who’s listening at pop-pop’s knee, or who’s playing with their toys on the floor as ole cousin Raymon’ spouts off about “heritage and the Confederacy”…
