So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….


Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!” 





The police officers then led the young woman away and began talking with her privately in low tones. When the paramedics FINALLY got there I was surprised at the hostility they showed towards the young man. One blonde female EMT (shown in the photo) suggested that he couldn’t be THAT hurt if he was able to walk from the place where he was struck to the sidewalk where he finally collapsed. White bystanders commented several times about “What that poor girl must be going through.” I was the only one who commented on what the young man must be going through, what, with his mangled leg and all. I am absolutely positive that in the end “that poor girl” will be absolved of all wrongdoing and be able to go on her merry way. After all, she just ran a red light and slammed her car into the body of some black kid on a bike, right?And people wonder why black people are so angry and want to break shit.
















friendly reminder that studies have shown that white people do not empathize with Black people and we (including medical personel) also think Black people feel less pain

"OH MY GOD! THE CAR IS DAMAGED! YOU POOR CAR!"

unequally yoked

My aunt got married on Sunday. She’s 13 years my senior. This is her first marriage.

In June, she told me to go and talk to my gynecologist about freezing my eggs, you know, just in case I find myself single at 39 and wanna birth some chirrens.

I take her advice to heart.

She called me today to thank me for holding her down on her wedding day.

"No doubt," was the sentiment of my response.

She then asked me how my relationship was going.

"Eh," was the sentiment of my response.

She told me that I need to pray about it. Fasting and prayer is what helped her gain clarity on her life, relationship, and now marriage.

I immediately decide to meditate more often and pray even more.

She said that I need to pray with my man. If we can’t pray together, it will never work.

My boyfriend is Hindu/Buddhist.

We have been together for over a year. Never have we prayed. Never have we meditated together, though I always bring it up. Whenever I say “God” or “Jesus” or anything not Vishnu, Ganesh, Lakshmi, or Siddartha, he reminds me that his gods are older. He’s joking, but still…

I take my aunt’s advice to heart.

to be continued…
