Remember #BringBackOurGirls? This Is What Has Happened In The 5 Months Since
On the night of April 14, 2014, hundreds of schoolgirls at the Chibok boarding school in northeastern Nigeria awoke to the sound of gunfire. They saw men in camouflage approaching and thought soldiers were coming to save them from a militant attack, according to survivors’ accounts.

You have been praying to the wrong kind of color.

This is really fucking powerful.


Unlike the beautiful 6-year old Jonbenett Ramsey who received coverage all over the media - every tabloid, newspaper, news channel, talk show, 7-year old Aiyana Stanley was killed by a police officer during a raid while she was sleep and her murder received very little coverage.
Police, searching for a murder suspect, threw a flash grenade through the window of her family’s apartment around midnight. According to Aiyana’s father, it landed on the couch, setting Aiyana on fire. A police officer’s gun then went off, and shot Aiyana in the neck.
Aiyana was asleep on the living room sofa in her family’s apartment when Detroit police, searching for a homicide suspect, burst in and an officer’s gun went off, fatally striking the girl in the neck, family members said.
Her father, 25-year-old Charles Jones, told The Detroit News he had just gone to bed early Sunday after covering his daughter with her favorite blanket when he heard a flash grenade followed by a gunshot. When he rushed into the living room, he said, police forced him to lie on the ground, with his face in his daughter’s blood.
“I’ll never be the same. That’s my only daughter,” Jones told.
We haven’t forgotten about you baby. R.I.P.

If all the gangs in the world unified, we’d stand a chance against the military tonight…

I said we stand a chance against the military tonight.




It’s truly sad and disheartening when black women don’t even know if they want to have children for fear of them being prematurely slaughtered and dehumanized,and y’all say “it’s deeper than colour”


I just had a conversation with a couple of friends about this, how we felt that we would have to raise our sons to be mentally strong. We questioned wether it was enough, because we live in a society were the color creates the character of a man and that is dangerous.

I don’t mean to disturb your day but, today in Iraq children had their heads cut off because they were born to Christian parents. Actually, I take my apology back, I hope this does disturb you today, enough to drive you to pray for the Christians of Iraq.



this has been on my mind all day. 

Pray for all involved. Even ISIS. Pray for those persecuted and those persecuting. 

Father forgive ISIS for they know not what they do.
