The hashtag #BlackLivesMatter has gone viral and is trending worldwide thanks to Twitter. As expected, jealous ass caucasians joined by caucasians who just don’t “get it” as usual want to hijack the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag with #AllLivesMatter. Bull shit. The moment caucasians start to get murdered for selling loose cigarettes, or shot 6 times for walking down the middle of a deserted street, or assaulted for not showing a cop ID, or shot dead for holding toy guns….when you caucasian folks get centuries of abuse, oppression and mistreatment…..THEN AND ONLY THEN CAN YOU CLAIM THAT YOUR LIFE MATTERS.

 

 

Until then, sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up. #BlackLivesMatter ain’t about YOU. It’s a rallying cry for injustice against Black Americans who are disgusted with Black Genocide from law enforcement.

 

For those uneducated caucasians who say I am racist….No person of color can ever be racist. Why? Racism is about Power, Control, Oppression & Wealth. What Black person do you know who has Power, Control,  has enough Wealth to Oppress anyone? Black people are the oppressed, and have been for centuries, so we can not be racist. What we can do is fight racism as best we can. And you are witnessing that fight right now.

 

 

Enough with all this garbage ass talk of #AllLivesMatter. When caucasians, who do the oppressing both mentally and physically, are the oppressed, then and only then will #AllLivesMatter. Until then, “Miss Me With That Bull Shit.”

Derrick Rose Opens Up About His ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Shirt.

Derrick Rose Opens Up About ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Shirt

 

CHICAGO — For once, the story around Derrick Rose has nothing to do with basketball or his health. It’s about something bigger.

Before the Chicago Bulls‘ Saturday night game against the Golden State Warriors, Rose came out of the tunnel for warm-ups wearing a shirt that read “I Can’t Breathe.” It was a reference to last week’s non-indictment of a New York City police officer in the choking death of Eric Garner.

 

The shirt was an unusually bold political statement from the normally soft-spoken Rose, speaking volumes without saying any words at all. He declined to address reporters after Saturday’s game, but spoke at length at the team’s practice facility on Monday about his decision to wear the shirt and why the Garner story resonated with him.

 

“I had the shirt made, my best friend Randall brought it to the game, and I decided to wear it,” Rose said. “It wasn’t any one [person’s] idea, I just thought I wanted to support something that happened. That’s what made me wear the shirt.”

If there’s anybody a story like Garner’s or the recent shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, would hit home with, it’s Rose, who grew up in the notoriously dangerous neighborhood of Englewood on the South Side of Chicago. For Rose, making a statement wasn’t just about Garner’s death. It was about something he knows all too well.

“I grew up and I saw it every day,” Rose said. “Not killing or anything like that, but I saw the violence every day. Just seeing what can happen. If anything, I’m just trying to change the kids’ minds across the nation and it starts here.”

One of those kids is Rose’s own two-year-old son. He talks often about how becoming a father has changed him, and his relationship with his son has informed his need to speak up on this issue.

“I’m a parent now,” Rose said. “I had a kid two years ago. It probably would have been different [before his son was born]. I probably wouldn’t have worn the shirt. But now that I’m a dad, it’s just changed my outlook on life, period.

“I don’t want my son growing up being scared of the police or having the thought that something like that could happen. I have a cousin, that easily could have been him, or that easily could have been one of our relatives. It’s sad that people lost their lives over that.”

Since Rose wore the shirt on Saturday, his message has reverberated around the league. On Sunday, LeBron James called Rose’s gesture “spectacular” and hinted that he might wear a similar shirt on Monday night when the Cleveland Cavaliers play the Brooklyn Nets.

“(James) is a huge figure,” Rose said. “And he grew up in a neighborhood like that. It means a lot for a star to come out and say something, especially a megastar, so I’m happy about that.”

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau didn’t know about the shirt beforehand, but for him, it was no surprise coming from the superstar who in September donated $1 million to After School Matters, a local charity focused on providing after-school activities for children in impoverished neighborhoods.

“I think it’s a great message,” Thibodeau said. “It’s about equality and justice for everybody. So I think you guys know the type of person Derrick is. I’m sure he’ll explain it further. Derrick’s a great person. I think you guys know what he did earlier with the after school program. He wants to stand for something and it’s important to him.”

Rose’s statement may have been out of character for him, but he isn’t the first NBA superstar to speak up on a social issue. Many players were outspoken about this spring’s Donald Sterling racism scandal, and in 2012, James’ Miami Heat teammates famously took a group photo wearing hoodies in honor of Trayvon Martin.

“Usually I’ll stay out of politics and stay out of police brutality,” Rose said. “I’m not saying all cops are bad or anything, I’m just saying what happened those days [in New York and Ferguson], it was uncalled for and I think that it hurt a lot of people. It hurt the nation.

“But my biggest concern is the kids. I know what they’re thinking right now. I was one of those kids. When you live in an area like that and you’ve got no hope, and police aren’t treating you any way, I’m not saying all police are treating kids bad, but when you live in an area like that, it gives you another reason to be bad. So my biggest concern is the kids and and making sure that my son grows up in a safe environment.”

Recently, the St. Louis Police Department reprimanded some St. Louis Rams players for walking out on the field before a game making the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” sign as a show of support for the protesters in Ferguson.

So far, Rose hasn’t faced any of the same resistance or backlash, and he hopes it stays that way.

“I’m just happy that the league hasn’t said anything,” he said. “The franchise hasn’t said anything. I’m happy that everything has been positive.”

As an NBA superstar, Rose has a massive platform to be a voice for these issues. The Bulls’ last superstar, Michael Jordan, shied away from politics entirely during his playing career, famously remarking that “Republicans buy shoes, too.” Rose isn’t following in those footsteps—he has a voice, and he’s going to use it to speak out on the issues that matter to him.

“I’m just happy that people paid attention to it,” he said. “I think it touched a lot of people because I grew up in an impoverished area like that, and that stuff happens a lot of times. It touched a lot of people and I wanted to make sure I got my point across.”

Thank you , and bleacher report.

Post Racial AmeriKKKa: Mug Shots Bar In St. Joseph, Missouri Offers Michael Brown “6 Shot ” Drink Special.


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ame

Missouri bar offers Michael Brown shot special

Screenshot (2711) Screenshot (2713)

 

A Missouri bar owner is in hot water after advertising a Michael Brown “shot special” to customers Friday night.

 

The promoti0n was “not meant to cause any harm,” the bar’s co-owner told WDAF-TV.

 

An image of the special surfaced on social media, promising patrons six shots of tequila for $10. An autopsy showed Brown was shot “at least” six times by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

 

“I should have thought about it a little bit before I made the shot special,” the bar’s owner said.

 

Mug Shots is a bar located in St. Joseph, Missouri, some 300 miles east of Ferguson. The owner says he stole the idea of a Michael Brown shot special from other bars in the area.

 

The owner declined to be identified in order to protect him and his family. The Michael Brown special was replaced on Saturday with this:

The pub’s tagline is: “Where sarcasm is always free.” If you’d like to show Mug Shots Bar your displeasure, pay ‘em a FRIENDLY visit at 1720 St Joseph Ave, St. Joseph, MO, United States. Tell ‘em Mr MilitantNegro™ sent you and says Hello.

Missouri Bar Draws Criticism for Michael Brown Tequila Shot Special

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (CBS St. Louis) – Mug Shots Pub, a St. Joseph bar that touts itself as a spot “where sarcasm is always free,” has faced public scrutiny after offering a Michael Brown shot special over the weekend.

The “Michael Brown special” – six shots of Jose Cinge for $10 – faced criticism on both social media and from protesters after the Mug Shots bar offered the deal Friday, WDAF-TV reports. At least one of the bar owners apologized for the deal after a photo of the special’s ad surfaced on social media outlets.

 

“It’s not meant to cause any harm,” he told WDAF on Saturday. “I should have thought a little bit more about it before I made it a shot special.”

 

The co-owner, who declined to be identified to protect himself and his family, said he stole the idea from shot specials offered by other bars in the St. Joseph area. Jose Cinge is a cinnamon-flavored tequila.

 

“It looked like it was getting a good response so I just decided to use it here,” he said. “That’s what bar owners do if they find something works at another bar, they try to use it at their bar.”

 

The “shot deal” refers to details of the autopsy conducted by the St. Louis County chief medical examiner, which found that the 18-year-old Michael Brown had six gunshot wounds to the head and chest.

 

A few protesters chanted with signs outside the bar Saturday night. Brian Kline, part of St. Joseph’s “Anonymous” group, said he had planned to protest as well but “talked it out” with the bar owner instead.

 

The owner canceled the Michael Brown shot special and replaced it with another deal poking fun at himself.

 

The pub’s tagline is: “Where sarcasm is always free.” If you’d like to show Mug Shots Bar your displeasure, pay ‘em a FRIENDLY visit at 1720 St Joseph Ave, St. Joseph, MO, United States. Tell ‘em Mr MilitantNegro™ sent you and says Hello.

Shannon Watts, Everytown for Gun Safety: Bring The Fight To Kroger’s Door.

Kroger’s executives probably don’t love the massive ad campaign that Moms Demand Action just launched online and in newspapers around the country. But we have ZERO intention of backing down until Kroger finally stops letting customers openly carry loaded guns in their stores.

Our next move is to take over a giant billboard right outside of Kroger headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio. The billboard sits right above highway I-71, where Kroger’s senior executives will see it on their way to work — every single day.

They won’t be able to ignore our message, but we need your help to make this happen.

Pick the billboard you think we should run by clicking one of the ads below….

Even after 125,000 messages and thousands of phone calls, Kroger still hasn’t budged on their dangerous gun policy. But if we get these billboards right in front of the grocery chain’s executives, we’ll send a clear message they can’t ignore.

With your help, Moms Demand Action can keep the pressure on Kroger leadership until they do the right thing to keep their customers and employees safe by prohibiting the open carry of guns in their stores.

Thank you for taking this fight to Kroger’s front door!
