    Black protesters telling off white agitators. (x)

    LOL
    I know who this guy is
    He’s one of the bob avakian followers from the revolutionary communist bookstore I interned at. They’re all like…old white ppl who love agitating police in the name of communist revoltion. Fucking assholes obsessed with promoting their brand.

    Why am I not surprised. What has everyone been saying about these garbage white “revolutionaries.” You’ve got anarchists and the RCP (and possibly the KKK) trying to weaponise protesters and incite an all-out confrontation on one end, and then the police who are just looking for an excuse and are already provocative enough on their own.

    It all must be a game to them, or an exercise in abstraction. Because I know they must be aware at least subconsciously that they are in little danger of retaliation. If they are hurt, it would be circumstantial or accidental; the black citizens would be brutalised.

    "They’re hurting our kids," the white man tells the Black man. No, they aren’t hurting white kids. White people need to have a seat.

    JFC these old white dudes are also the same people funding Stop Patriarchy. White people. Fart noise.

  4. More than 300 women were stabbed, strangled, beaten, bludgeoned or burned to death over the past decade by men in South Carolina, dying at a rate of one every 12 days while the state does little to stem the carnage from domestic abuse. More than three times as many women have died here at the hands of current or former lovers than the number of Palmetto State soldiers killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined.

not sharing the link because FUCK that. but thought i’d show you what our esteemed local clickbait trolls have in wait for you today. 

I imagine the catcall stretches back to ancient construction times, when the Israelites were building the pyramids, with scores of single Jewish women hiking up their loincloths, hoping for a little attention.
Finally gave in and read it. I hate everyone.

    Ferguson Police: Kicks out media and limits protestors to a “First Amendment Area”image

    funny, i thought the WHOLE COUNTRY was a first amendment area. silly me. 

    This is a great image, but minor nitpick: its origin is the Bundy Ranch standoff, which is kinda funny seeing as we haven’t heard fuck-all from those folks about the current “tyranny” of the “police state.”

    Though the killing of Brown by Wilson seemingly fits a long historical script of the harassment of black people at the hands of white police officers, the reality is that overpolicing is an ideology that many police officers subscribe to regardless of color. That ideology is rooted in a kind of anti-blackness that sees black bodies as a perpetual and mortal threat. Anti-black rhetoric has shown up not only from the Ferguson police but also ironically in the reporting and advocacy of everyone from CNN reporter Don Lemon to rapper Nelly, in their continued focus on issues like “black-on-black crime” and the necessity of keeping law and order. “Don’t use your last option, first,” Nelly told folks on St. Louis radio. There is little recognition that it is Darren Wilson who used his last option – lethal force — first. Moreover, the whole point of using tear gas and military vehicles in this small community is to force the residents into a realization that they have run out of options. Sadly, anti-black ideology can emerge even from people who are black or who otherwise love black people.

    Maxine Brown “Wrong Number, Right Girl” (1965, Unreleased. From Spotlight On Maxine Brown/Greatest Hits, 2000)

    Happy 75th Birthday Maxine Brown.

    I shouldn’t play favorites with fire, but Maxine Brown is totally my favorite Leo Leading Lady of Sixties Soul. Her uniquely tart and flexible voice with commanding power and remarkable tenderness caressed a number of songs from the dawn of Sixties soul and beyond. Although not a consistent chart topper, she placed a number of efforts, a number of her earlier ones she penned herself.

    Along with her plethora of singles and smattering of LPs, she did manage to have a fair share of her efforts vaulted, especially during her run at Scepter Records from 1963 through 1967. This delightfully brazen romp has been a favorite of mine since it debuted nearly 15 years ago, and is a perfect celebration of this unheralded Queen of Soul.
