Why people ask me shit like “how was work?” or “how is school?” like work is work, school is school, I would rather be on a yacht right now while gettin some dick but here I am
As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.
they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution
it’s really scary
it’s really infuriating
it’s really exhausting
Her face makes me very very very very very sad. I wanna cry
Fuck all cops.
I don’t know why the husband believes they were targeted because they were an interracial couple… SHE was targeted because SHE was black… da fuk…
Right. He somehow had to make it about him when it was obvious that it was about her being black.
well part of the reason they stood out was because they were an interracial couple. let’s not pretend that isn’t still taboo.Who’s cuffed though…..
“I believe that the things that happen to you as a child greatly shape the rest of your life. I once took a class with a professor who said, ‘Think about your favorite fairytale, the one that makes the greatest impression on you: that is the theme of your life.’ Those early stories are a lot deeper than they seem, and children are attracted to them because of certain interests.
“Similarly, I once heard someone from India say, ‘It doesn’t matter what you do. You are part of a pattern, and you repeat that pattern all your life—unless you’re strong enough to break it.’
“Lastly, I remember a politician being asked by a reporter how he wanted to be remembered at the end of his life. He answered, ‘I’d like to be remembered as someone who did the best he could with what he had.
“So I’ll tell you this about myself: I wasn’t given much in life, but I did the best with what I had.”

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss.
