Welcome to Passive, New York
As Andy Henriquez, a 19 year old from Washington Heights lay in his cell dying from a tear in his aorta, an artery that supplies blood to the heart, he asked a guard if he could call his mother just to say goodbye. For days he suffered in pain barely able to breathe as the blood made its way down to his groin. He request was denied. His fellow inmates knew something was wrong. They screamed and kicked doors in a failed bid to get Andy some help.  A doctor who visited him earlier that day prescribed him hand cream and wrote the prescription in the wrong name.
Hours later he was found dead on the floor of his cell.
This happened in April of last year, New Yorkers are just hearing about it today because a suit has been filed by the lawyer of Mr. Henriquez’s family.
In this last year I have been thinking about some things….
I have thought about the death of Eric Garner and the muted outrage that followed.
I have thought about all the black men who were set up by Detective Louis Scarcella from Brooklyn, who have languished in jail for years and are just now having their cases reviewed after it was discovered Scarcella was crooked and the silence that followed.
I have thought about how everyone just accepts that Stop and Frisk is a thing of the past and that the rights of black and brown men here in New York City are not still being violated.
I have thought about how slick it was for our Mayor to parade his black family in front of the cameras to get elected and how New Yorkers have yet to check him for basically being Bloomberg 2.0.
I have thought about those who live in the projects whose stewards, NYCHA, last year said they had a surplus of money to fix them and are now saying this year they have no money.
I have thought about how “affordable housing” here means you must make damn near 100k, yet no one seems to believe that this city hates its poor.
I have thought about the fact that this city has the highest rates of workplace discrimination lawsuits in the country, yet no one wants to address racism in the workplace.
I have thought about how gentrification of this city has made many neighborhoods I once loved and enjoyed unrecognizable and in my view turned its residents into the quietest, softest, most passive lot of New Yorkers I have ever experienced in my lifetime here.
Who the fuck are you people?
There will be very little outrage over Mr. Henriquez’s death. This lot of New Yorkers would be more outraged if you kicked a cat than if you choked a young black man to death or allowed one to internally bleed to death on the floor of a jail cell.

TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

Anonymous asked: What do you think of white people

safety-goth:

A program that will not debug itself. 

that’s a bit of a generalization. anglo-germanic people have been the central white oppressors throughout history. you can look at places like ireland and see that they never took part in institutionalized oppression outside of isolated individuals. as a matter of fact, many irish were enslaved.
lastly, many african and asian nations have a long running history of human trafficking and institutionalized racism. look at places like zimbabwe or india or somalia or bangladesh. do they also refuse to debug themselves?

gotta stay hip and cool in your cultural studies class though, i guess.

Error _1: Anonymous specifically inquired about white people. 

Error _2: Who is teaching your cultural studies class? From what books do you learn from? Who are the authors? I can assure you that it is highly probable that the information given is from a one-sided perspective.

Error_3: Please view map of European Expansion

Error_4: Think about how over the years european expansion has affected places such as Zimbabwe or India.  Many countries still suffer from the effects of colonization. 

Error_5: Regardless of a tumulus past, the Irish people are still in fact european and benefit from white privilege. Were the Irish people fighting alongside civil rights leaders for basic human rights? Please inform me, if Irish people have to take safety precautions to walk outside at night because of their “ethnicity”. 

Error_6: “that’s a bit of a generalization. anglo-germanic people have been the central white oppressors throughout history” This is equal to the statement, “not all white people”. Once again, shifting the subject to one selves at the expense of your own comfort and simultaneously pointing fingers at other peoples who have at one point in time been victims of European colonization.

KENDRICK JOHNSON: Black Market For BLACK ORGANS! WTF! DICK GREGORY EXPLAINS.

sapphrikah

There is another video on fb that continues to go into depth about the black market organ selling industry and how vital the black male organs are and after watching that and seeing how the police were putting Michael Brown’s body into their SUV there is no doubt in my mind that’s what was going on. Think about where his gunshot wounds were? Away from his heart etc… It’s deep stuff once you start processing it

Son. What. The entire. Fuck.

^^^^^^^^^^^

Oh my God.

It makes perfect sense now why his organs were missing.

OH MY GOD

Hmmm…

i saw a post that said they are no “good” cops cause if they were good they’d report the dirty cops. that’s a valid point, but you know what happens to the good cops that report dirty cops?
