Tonight was such a high night. Dr Cornel West is such a powerful speaker for every nationality not just African Americans. He spoke on many things but he emphasized on how we as young people need to have integrity, courage and not to be scared to tell the truth. The sole purpose of an EDUCATION is SEEKING THE TRUTH.





Ferguson -2014

I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.

Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.

Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening

This touches home especially after have the honor of hearing Dr Cornel West live at Skyline College tonight

Just Because

I always get weird looks about my major. My major is Applied Mathematics because I am soooo tired of seeing young people of color struggling from unequipped teachers who do not understand the struggle of children with urban lifestyles. You see I grew up in what most would call the hood but my mom refused to let me succumb to the lifestyle so she put me in a suburban school who had shit for teachers. When I mean shit for teachers I mean I literally slept thru each class and graduated with a 3.8. Math seems to be the main subject a lot of students of color have issues with and I heard it a lot that it was hard and all this and that. But when I got to college I met a professor who’s first words to my class was “I fuss and I cuss and if you have a problem with that there’s the door.” She was amazing. She made sure we LEARNED and not memorized. The environment she created within her class was like a family and one that kept growing with each semester. It is something I want to see duplicated in high schools all around. Idc about the money I just want to see young people of color succeed past the bullshit heading their way. Change the way these youngins are starting to think and look at things.

Baton Rouge cop resigns after he’s caught texting desire to ‘pull a Ferguson’ on ‘n*ggers’


A police officer in Baton Rouge resigned Thursday after a local news channel revealed that he sent text messages in which he wished that fellow officers “would pull a Ferguson” on a “bunch of monkeys,” The Advocate reports.

Fifteen-year-veteran Michael Elsbury resigned on Thursday after text messages he sent to a female friend were brought to the attention of his superiors. In one message, Officer Elsbury — whose patrol included the area around the historically black Southern University — wrote that blacks are “nothing but a bunch of monkeys,” and that the “only reason they have this job is the nigger, nigger in them.” It is unclear what “job” he is referring to.

In another text, he wrote that “I wish someone would pull a Ferguson on them and take them out. I hate looking at those African monkeys at work…I enjoy arresting those thugs with their saggy pants.”

Some people will say this is just an exception and that most cops are not like this.

They would be wrong.

Most cops are PRECISELY like this. The difference is that most of them have better sense than to put those feelings in a text message.
