“If I see three or four young black men walking down the street, I have to stop them and check their names. I want them to be afraid every time they see the police that they might get arrested.”

Chief Russell Mills to the LA Times after shooting and killing black 89-year-old great grandfather Shawn Monroe at a barbecue unprovoked. Today, he walks free with no charges, despite numerous witnesses and his own admission that he enjoys terrorizing black people.

Tell me again why Black people should be okay with police when they have, since the history of our being kidnapped to this fucking country, have not EVER been about protecting us, but about terrorizing us?

Police are NOT for Black people’s safety. They are about torturing us, terrorizing us and killing us. Period. There is no safety with police. There is no peace keeping with police. They have ALWAYS been a terror to the Black community and I am tired of this fact being pushed to the wayside.

And Ray Kelly, when he was Commissioner in NYC said the same thing.
Arpaio has said the same thing.
This is a ROUTINE assertion that the point of the police is to be an agent of state terror. And that such terror should be all but exclusively focused on Black and Brown bodies.

“I think a lot of people don’t understand that when we talk about these issues—blackface, rape jokes, the appropriation of marginalized cultures, and so on—we are having an ethical conversation, not a legal one. There is no thought police. No one’s coming to your house and carting you off to Insensitivity Prison. But you, as a person living on this planet, get to make a choice whether you want to hurt people or help people. Whether you want to listen or shut people out. I can’t imagine why you’d choose ‘defensive shithead’ over ‘nice lady capable of empathy,’ but okey dokey.”

Brad Pitt in 1994

Holy fucking shit.

someone pick me up off the floor, jesus actual christ

Legends of the Fall was a good time for us in Brad’s life.

Imagine being a 14 year old girl in 1994. WHAT ARE THESE FEELINGS FOR BRAD AND KEANU I CAN’T DEAL

I literally had these photos torn from Rolling Stone folded up in a box for YEARS. I loved him then.

You like someone who can’t like you back because unrequited love can be survived in a way that once-requited love cannot.

People are mad that Coca-Cola had people sing America the Beautiful in different languages but not mad that Coca-Cola has death squads take out union members and their families in the countries where Coca-Cola is stealing the water, polluting, and exploiting the indigenous people of South America.
