Who doesn't love the story of cold winter nights that drove away the Red coats! Them brits..
I'm thinking about a couple of kids down der in Ferguson, MisserAH (MO).
I'm pissed off that kids-African American boys and girls had to live in a gas filled area for a couple days in the past week. It saddens me that their summer is forever marked.
The PG commentary version:
IT MAKES me sad and unhappy for this Labor Day weekend.
(The REAL Version)
I'm fucking pissed of seeing black and brown baby lives devalued so much!
They are kids
I fucking repeat: they are kids!
Being from WI I've seen and heard and know of plenty of white DUDES get a small slap on the hand that others get years for. This kid walks across the street and get shot THEN his whole block, his neighborhood gets gassed on instead of loved on.
It fucking happens, but that's what happens cuando bailas con el Diablo. Or so we tell ourselves that if you get hurt you must have deserved it.
Imagine your neighbor and she has a six year old daughter.
Now, put her in the only area she knows to be home, and now her street, her front yard is foggy with chemical stuff making it hard to breath.
That neighbor that girl are real and if they were you and your kid--would you stay?
I don't know how long tear gas stays in the air but I DON"T WANT TO HAVE TO KNOW EITHER!
Now, remember they are American, and children, I put down the citizen part out because if equality is for everyone.
As a parent, I honestly don't think I would survive X of days living in a Hotel with my two kids...if I had to escape the tear gassing of my neighborhood because a cop killed my neighbor.
I am trying to put myself their reality-here in Madison a town that lets 'kids' drink and throw a small village of trees in products into the streets after a game. And then tear gas downtown or my street for 4 to 5 days straight.
I would have to move.
I have lived near pollution before after Hurricane Sandy water consumption some days was not permitted for weeks after the rains.
I don't know of many people who live in apartments would have monies to be staying at hotels until the air clears up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I think I explained fully why I would never put up with any type of tear gassing on my street.
What a betrayal of being American in America. They only feed the dragon...
In college, I remember seeing how there was a such thing as Environmental Racism or something close to that. Lead poisoning, toxic dumps sites, and other ailments are serious and real dangerous of living in a people of color neighborhood.
The likely hood of getting some diseases go up from as the area is more urban.
I am at a disbelief of what Micheal Brown's neighborhood has gone through, its fucking tragedy that the police made even worse.
The things we don't know about OUR Country is ABOUT as scary as getting gassed for 4-5 days.
I promise you that the people living in Madison, Penn, and Michigan Ave along with Mifflin Street--Have no problems during their summers.
CUS those Mutherafuckers don't stay home in the summers! They are on some island or where ever the fuck they go.
only the apartment kids typically get to stay around....
So Excuse and Fuck me if I was supposed to be happy for the end of the summer.
For a whole neighborhood, this summer was one of the worst ones of their entire lives.
Dare I say 100's nope 1000's! of kids because not only did it suck for these kids who lived there, but all of their kids because this becomes generational.
So my point is:
