BREAKING: Peaceful Protesters In Ferguson MO Get Pummeled By Police Officers After Their Chief Marched With Protesters

  • I think the PD is aggressively attacking protestors because they assume & no longer gives a damn
  • Chief Jackson did this. His officers did this. Women were attacked. He said he was marching with us. Lies..he set us up
  • And Chief Jackson didn’t do ANYTHING to stop the attacks and mayhem. DID NOTHING!
  • LOTS of cops out right now. A short clash with the police after arrests were made. Live Feed Here:

one of my fav scenes to be honest, cause lawd knws if they allowed black folks in the league maaaaaaan listen, alot of what ifs possiblities 

This film, “A League of Their Own” dedicates so many scenes to issues like sexism.

Yet, blink too fast and you’ll miss this short scene…the one that shows how Black women were barred from the league.

The Black woman is supposed to represent Mamie “Peanut” Johnson (who actually did try out for the league). She wasn’t allowed to play and went on to be one of the few women to play with men in the Negro League. 

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A FILM ABOUT JOHNSON AND THE OTHER WOMEN WHO PLAYED FOR THE NEGRO LEAGUE! But Hollywood …

Reblogging to include this really adorable picture of Mamie “Peanut” Johnson and Mo’Ne Davis:

An NYPD officer was caught on a disturbing video tackling a clearly pregnant woman and riding her to the ground early Saturday in Brooklyn.

The recording shows Sandra Amezquita, who is 5-foot-4 and five months pregnant, being grabbed by the arm and thrown to the pavement with the cop on her back in Sunset Park around 2:15 a.m.

The baby’s father, Ronel Lemos, said he watched in horror as his wife hit the ground belly-first.

“The first thing I thought was they killed my baby and they’re going to kill my wife,” Lemos, 50, told the Daily News on Tuesday.

Moments later, another unidentified woman was violently flung to the ground on Fifth Ave. and 41st St.

“You would think the police would respect a woman that is pregnant,” Amezquita, 43, said through an interpreter in an exclusive interview with The News.

“I was afraid something happened to my baby. I am still afraid that something is wrong,” she said, referring to the abdominal pain that persists.

FUCK THE POLICE!!!!!!!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

My female villains are all so different!! But they all wear black clothes, dark lipstick and up-dos. Why waste time in characterization when their looks can tell all you need to know? I mean you don’t want them being more than stereotypes, that would be so confusing to the audience! 

At first I thought those were all the same person

Sigh.

I never knew what an up-do was.

Worst-Case Ebola Prediction: 1.4 Million Cases in Four Months

Dire new estimates show that people who contract the deadly Ebola virus have a 70.8 percent chance of dying — and the disease is on course to spread even more rapidly than ever.

The death rate for those infected with the virus is only one among many grim facts revealed in reports released today in the New England Journal of Medicine and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as a separate assessment by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Read more

Someone set Mike Brown’s Memorial on fire in the middle of the Night

Residents are rebuilding another memorial.

FERGUSON • One of two Michael Brown memorials burned overnight, though it’s not clear how.

Memorial items near a post along the street burned. However, a larger memorial in the middle of Canfield Drive, marking the spot where Brown died, is several feet away and was not damaged by fire.

For weeks, burning candles have been part of the memorials near the shooting site on Canfield Drive, but it was unclear if the fire at the roadside memorial was set or an accident. One photo showed an empty, overturned votive candle next to the burn site.

Some residents of the area were upset, claiming the fire was set by someone in the pre-dawn hours early Tuesday and that they smelled gasoline in the aftermath.

Many on Tuesday morning had gathered on Canfield Drive, which police had closed. Some were rebuilding the memorial with a blanket and a new collection of teddy bears and other stuffed animals next to the soot-stained pole.

(Dont read the comments, please)

Actually, I’d say that if you’re white, and doubting that there is racism in this country, a glance at the comments should cure you of that. 

I’ll just be over here praying this was an accident.

The photos and information coming out of Ferguson, MO this evening are shocking.

SWAT teams clearing out fast food restaurants, journalists arrested, full-scale police-as-military response to non-violent protest.

And yet perhaps the most amazing thing is that there seem not to be any elected officials willing to tell this police force to stand down.

Many inmates became seriously ill and even died of treatable diseases. One patient who repeatedly complained of intense pain and disorientation was allegedly mocked for “faking” his symptoms. He eventually died of lung cancer, which was not diagnosed until a few days before his death. Another prisoner died of AIDS-related pneumonia after prison staff ignored his requests for an HIV test. Others waited months for vital surgeries or prescriptions.
One sick inmate said he fell and was left on the floor for three to five hours. “I would just like to feel safe and not fall. That’s all,” he told one of the visiting doctors.

Sometimes rape culture can be insidious, but this is one of the bluntest examples I’ve seen yet. 

JFC, NO. You don’t help your career by taking the knife someone else has shoved into your gut and then twisting it deeper.
