Hello, Middle Class!

Watch: Black teen uses Vine to catch white people following him around stores 

These videos allegedly show a number of convenience store clerks nonchalantly following Polo to “make sure” he doesn’t steal anything.
They are not slick. Each time Polo catches them snooping, his accusatory outburst sends them scurrying down the aisles. 
It would be hilarious social commentary if it was so real.

This is a photo of 17 year old Elsemiek de Borst. She was aboard the ill-fated Malaysian flight MH17. Her father, Hans, wrote a letter to the people he believes to be responsible for the death of this daughter. This letter is heartbreaking. Lennart Peeters translated it to english. Here’s the facebook link.

Detroit activist slams reporter on air for misreporting reasons for water shutoff to thousands

OMG you all have to watch this.

She’s my HERO!

DAYUM! She shut that FOX-reporter-wannabe down. Not here for that mess at all!

Bloop

I’m tryna be her when I grow up

Shiiett

Shitted on ‘em

How dare we claim to be the greatest country on Earth and allow our own people to live in abject poverty. Detroit saved this country when it was about to break and this is how we repay it? This is the future of America, kids. Whether you want to admit it or not. We need to help our people.

Every male should have to watch this in every year of school from middle school until college graduation. This whole segment is genius. Jessica Williams does a fantastic job of using comedy to let women know what to do in every situation.

If people think this JMU thing is uncommon they’re fools. It’s happening everywhere.

This has been a long time coming. For those of you unfamiliar with the case of The Central Park Five I strongly suggest you watch the documentary with the same name on Netflix. Here’s a brief synapses of what happened. In 1989 a 28 year old white woman was jogging in Central Park when she was brutalized and raped. NYPD arrested 5 young black and latino men, forced them to admit to the crime and sentenced them to prison.

Years later, DNA evidence was found that the 14-16 year old kids had nothing to do with the crime, but they have already served 13 years in prison. in 2002 the verdicts were vacated and 12 years later they have finally been given a $40 million dollar settlement for their lives being ruined.

This was a case that shook the city to it’s core. For black people in America this case was something that was all too familiar. Many black people in this country do not feel like the justice system is ever working in their favor. Hopefully, after about another generation or two have died off and we can see that there are more important matters at hand than the color of a person’s skin, cases like this will no longer happen.
