Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody.  Not shot and kill and left out on the road.  They were arrested and given due process.  They’re names aren’t leaked.  We’re not seeing invasions into their facebooks for impeding trials.  We’re not even seeing mug shots.  We don’t know if they’re anarchist, klan or anything at all.  We just know they left the scene of a armed chase alive.

This is the difference and the outrage.

they always show us the truth with their actions

HM AND THEYRE STILL ALIVE TO TELL THE TALE. Interesting.

Let’s just reiterate: “Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody.  Not shot and kill and left out on the road.  They were arrested and given due process.”

If you’re battling a mental illness and didn’t want to wake up this morning but did anyways, you’re a motherfucking badass. Because living with a mental illness is hard and I’m damn proud of you for still being here and fighting. You’re metal as hell and tough as nails. So keep on fighting, you kickass Viking warrior. You can win this.

Tired myself out sewing since 2pm. And my suspenders keep slipping off my right shoulder. What a hussy. Time for bed, I think.

Re-imagine: Black Women in Britain
Long before the Empire Windrush arrived on British shores in 1948 there were women of African descent in Britain. Black women were here to witness the construction of Hadrian’s Wall in Roman Britain and everyday life over the centuries, in the markets and music halls, homes and factories.
 Re-imagine gives us a glimpse of some of these women, the traces of their lives lying in vaults of archives, libraries and museums across the United Kingdom and brought together for the first time.
Side by side. Face to face. Courageous women who, throughout generations have been brave. We invite you to ‘re-imagine’ their lives, to create a tapestry of stories that paint a picture of the many and eclectic roles of Black women over time.24 July – 30 November 2014 FREE admission @bcaheritage #reimagine

If you are in London, or can get to London, please do yourself a favour and head on to Brixton to visit the Black Cultural Archives opening exhibition, Re-Imagine: Black Women in Britain.
I attended the opening of the Archives last week held and I have no words for it. There are no words to describe the significance of 3000 or so Black people gathering on Windrush Square, taking back Brixton from the growing wave of white middle class gentrifiers. It was moving, really and truly. The feeling continued later when seemingly everyone spilled into Brixton Village Market and again took back a space that has been stolen from Brixton’s black community. 
The exhibition itself acts to fill in silences around Britain’s Black women, tracing the history of Black women from the as early as pre-19th century and ending with Doreen Lawrence. The narrative of Black women in Britain is growingly characterised by glaring omission and invisibility but this space throws the narrative to the wind: Black women are not invisible, they are here for you to see. There is Olive Morris in one corner and her mother in another; Mary Seacole’s photograph is proudly displayed beside that of Jessica Huntley. 
Please, please go and see it. You will not regret it.
