Am I the only one who feels this way?
Not at all
Then and now
But notice how this headline from the civil rights era is more sympathetic to the victims than most you’d see today.
^^^^ The ABOVE COMMENT.
This particular set doesn’t make the rounds on Tumblr much, probably because it’s a bit darker in tone - I think it drives the point home a lot better.
racism in 2014
what does the thrd one mean
It means white people have to be included in everything and its annoying
Whites riot over pumpkins in NH and Twitter turns it into epic lesson about Ferguson, aka The Best of #PumpkinFest, PT 1. #staywoke

Bitch you guessed it! Its no room for sensitive ppl in your line of business
damn she gets no love lol
Then if Iggy ended up killing herself would you still feel the same way? I mean really this is the reason.
Real. Hypocrisy at it’s finest.
Oh my god, you soft ass muthafuckas PLEASE
Listen, the reason why Snoop has been over (in the terms that I use as popular & shit like that) for 20+ years is because he understands the game & the culture. Hip-Hop is a full contact sport in ANY FORM of the culture, whether it be on the mic, on the dance floor, on the turntables, on vacant walls, in business, or in the public eye. So if rappers go at your head, it’s to see what you’re made of. Snoop “clowning” Iggy like that to me looks like a form of rookie hazing & she’s literally being the butt-hurt little summer camp kid that’s calling her mom on the phone going “mommy, can you pick me up, I hate it here!” Like Jesus Tapdancing Christ, if you’re gonna take something like that personally, pack up your shit & leave! Take your ball & go home, you clearly ain’t cut out for this shit. Sure, a lot of rappers have taken stuff like this personally, but y’know what they did? THEY WENT ON WAX & DISSED BACK! BECAUSE THAT’S THE CULTURE OF HIP-HOP! Plus, Snoop continuing to clown her is all on her. She had to get all sensitive & butt-hurt, & if you pay attention to the captions Snoop’s been using, he’s clearly saying “quit crying, you’re just making it worse for yourself now suck it up & be a real muthafucka about it & show us why you should be taken seriously as a rapper.” Because if you notice, nobody takes her seriously as a rapper, & by her basically being all sensitive over Snoop clowning her is just the icing on the cake.
& to the person who asked that hypothetical question of Iggy actually taking her life over Snoop clowning her…please spare us that shit & blow it out your ass because hey, I seem to recall a time when Ja Rule was the most HATED DUDE IN THE RAP WORLD! List of rappers that had beef with him:
50 Cent (clowned him the most)
Eminem & the rest of D12 (so that’s 12 guys right there including Em)
The list goes on. But did Ja tap out? Did Ja call up Hot 97 & cry on the radio goin’ “I don’t know why they’re clowning me, why would they do that?” Did he go on 106 & Park & plead for Fif to stop ridin’ his ass? Did he once say “seriously, if you muthafuckas don’t stop, I’m gonna kill myself.” NO! He did 2 things: he tried to avoid the beef & focus on his success & then he attacked EVERYBODY! THAT’S WHAT YOU DO: EITHER MOVE ON OR PICK UP A MIC! NO RAPPER IN THE HISTORY OF HIP-HOP EVER ONCE TOOK THEIR OWN LIFE BECAUSE THEY WERE GETTING DISSED & CLOWNED. NONE! So Iggy, with absolutely no due respect, pick up your ball & leave because you are clearly NOT made for this! & if anybody’s not down with that, I’ve got 2 SWEEEEEEEEEEEET words for ya:
"Rahm Emanuel is not caring about our schools; he is not caring about our safety. He only cares about his kids. He only care about what he needs. He do not care about nobody else but himself.
He let Barbara Byrd-Bennett, a woman that’s from Detroit who don’t even know the streets of Chicago where I’m from, come in and close these schools.” [x]
Look at the passion y’all!!!
Teach the babies that their words matter yess
and teach them to stand up for their education and well-being. teach them to love to learn and that learning is necessary for their progression. teach them knowledge is more important than video games and jordans. and let them know they’re doing the right thing when they yearn for knowledge, because i damn sure didn’t see things this way as a child.
Black Teen With White Parents Mistaken For Burglar, Assaulted By Cops In His Own Home
‘Put your hands on the door, I was like, ‘For what? This is my house.’ Police pointed at photos of white people hanging on the wall and told him that he was lying.
A North Carolina teen was recently assaulted and pepper sprayed by police in his own home, after he was mistaken for a burglar. 18-year-old DeShawn Currie has been living with foster parents Ricky and Stacy Tyler in Wake County, North Carolina for about a year.
The Tylers love DeShawn as their own son and they have taken him into their home, in hopes to provide him the safe and loving environment that he needs to thrive in the most important years of his life.
Unfortunately, some of the Tyler’s neighbors were not familiar with the family dynamics of the home, and decided to call the police to report a burglary when they saw the young man entering his home after school one day. DeShawn did not climb through a window or struggle to get inside, but simply walked through the unlocked door of the home. The only thing that actually made his neighbors suspicious, was the color of his skin.
When police arrived on the scene they treated DeShawn like a criminal without asking any questions.
“They was like, ‘Put your hands on the door, I was like, ‘For what? This is my house.’ I was like, ‘Why are y’all in here?” DeShawn said in an interview.
When DeShawn asked the officers why they were in his home, they pointed at photos of white people hanging on the wall and told him that he was lying.
“I’m feeling comfortable, I had moved into my room, and I’m feeling like I’m loved. And then when they come in and they just profile me and say that I’m not who I am. And that I do not stay here because there was white kids on the wall, that really made me mad,” DeShawn later told reporters.
During the entire altercation, police were shouting profanity at the young man, and pointing multiple guns at his face. When DeShawn stood firm and insisted that he was in fact in his own home, police attacked him with pepper spray.
When Stacy Tyler came home from work she saw her son DeShawn in the driveway being treated by paramedics for the injuries that police had inflicted.
“My 5-year-old last night, she looked at me and said, ‘Mama I don’t understand why they hated our brother, and they had to come in and hurt him,” Stay Tyler told reporters.
“Everything that we’ve worked so hard for in the past years was stripped away yesterday in just a matter of moments,” father Ricky Tyler added.
The police department has defended their actions, saying that that DeShawn did not obey the officer’s orders to the letter, despite the fact that they were intruders in his home and had no right to be there barking orders at him.
Now this is something to bring attention to.
I will never not reblog this gif set whenever it comes across my dash.
