If you read, or are currently reading this news headline today and thinking, “Great!! I’m glad justice is served”, you have the wrong idea of what justice is. It’s time to re-think the way we see justice delivered to victims of oppression and abuse.  For the humiliation, pain, psychological and physical violence Marlene Pinnock endured, this settlement was rightfully owed to her. But this is what I call, “partial justice”.The provision in the $1.5 million settlement states that the officer will resign. This is where justice is lacking. He is not being terminated, he is choosing to resign. For justice to work, the officer involved should be terminated, and must be arrested and charged for the violent crime of assault. There has to be accountability within the CHP. CHP is responsible for sending a clear message to Marlene Pinnock and Californians throughout the state, that they will not tolerate police brutality and will bring charges on any and all officers who fail to comply, just as they would do to civilians.  There is a pattern that has been developing for years across the nation, police commit acts of extreme violence on civilians (including sexual assault and murder), and walk away without incident. A new precedent must be set, one that says law enforcement is not above the law. This is just the beginning, we have yet to scratch the surface of ‘justice’ with this story.

  4. HAPPENING NOW (9.26.14): And in an instance, mayhem. The police attacked protesters without warning or clear provocation, mind you, WHILE the police chief was out chatting/marching with them. More to come tonight. Stay woke. #farfromover (PT I)

    HAPPENING NOW (9.24.14): The situation in Ferguson is escalating quickly. Protests continue, following this morning’s burning of a Mike Brown memorial, and another frustrating Ferguson City Council meeting.Looks like the same “antagonize over de-escalate” tactics are back online. Prayers to all those out in the street of Ferguson right now fighting for their right to exist. #staywoke #farfromover (PT IPT IIPT III)  

    Bringing back the dogs, choppers, charging the crowd, attempting to bottleneck protesters into an area, AND live shots possible fired into the crowd… what the ever-living fuck is Ferguson PD trying to do?! We’re a month and a half into this saga, and they still don’t know how to de-escalate a situation. Pray y’all. That might be all we got right now.

  8. Anonymous said: I'm married and I'm messing with a married man. A few days ago he told me he has caught feelings. I did fall in love with him but I can't bring myself to tell him in fear that he may be playing with my emotions. We've been messing around for almost three years, is it possible he is telling the truth?

    It’s possible. But you shouldn’t get a divorce because you caught feelings for the person you’re cheating with. Here’s why:

    This analogy may seem weird at first, but humor me for a second. 

    You know how children always love their aunts and uncles? Aunts and uncles are fun because they buy you stuff, they’re always happy to see you. They’re not always on your case about shit like your parents. 

    Aunts and Uncles are fun because they only have to see you when they want to. They don’t have to deal with you 24hrs a day, feed you, clothe you, discipline you, make you do homework. They aren’t your parents so they don’t have the responsibility of the dirty work. That’s why they seem so great.

    This nigga you’re cheating with is an “uncle”. 

    He’s not tasked with the dirty work. Managing bills with you, running a home with you. Smelling your period farts when its that time of the month. Seeing you looking busted when you take that sew in out and don’t have any makeup on. 

    Your husband deals with that shit on the daily. Your husband represents real life and the not-so-fun things that come with it. That’s why the side nigga seems so great. Your side nigga is a vacation from the responsibilities in your real life. 

    I’m not telling you not to cheat. I’m just telling you not to throw away your marriage for greener pastures. Because if you do… your side nigga won’t be the “uncle” anymore… Things won’t be so great. And you might regret your decision. 

    BRUH….

    This nigga really broke it down

    While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.
