your speech trumps my peace

i watch you squirm

outta the corner of my eye

your invalid truths

crumbling and floating

away

standing at your pulpit

condemning those others

who don’t do it

quite the way you can

the fags and the black

even worse black fags

good ol’ jim crow

kept the peace

in your southern town

now it’s food stamps

and welfare moms

but more

it’s ignorant fucks

preaching about things

they will never understand

whispering for violence

so subversive

with your hatred

screaming for rights

to justify being a dick

quoting king james verbatim

calling for freedom

of speech

of guns

your boots muffling

the sound of the ppl

you smash to get

to the top of american mountain

war-cry of the downtrodden…or my best poem EVER!!!!!

2 men experience one hour of the pain of contractions

i think this should just be required generalized sex ed, or at the very least expectant daddy’s should have to have a good round of simulated pain the mother of their kids go through! now, these strong healthy men endured what felt to them like contractions for an hour, and they look as though they have seen war. i can tell you as the mom of three kids, very rarely does labor last one hour! also, while contractions are painful, they are particularly difficult to deal with while your enter gal-hood is on display feet up in stirups while a baby is traveling through a tunnel about 8 times smaller than the baby, the pressure on the pelvis, and tearing and/or episiotomy (the cutting of the taint from hole to hole to make for a wider exit) all of which factor into the wonderful experience of childbirth. i do have to admit that even though it is a gut wrenching experience, that words do no justice, it is worth it in the end! that baby makes the world melt away and you fall in love for the first time!

Please Excuse Davontaye, He Suffers From Povertenza

calming calamities-allena calyn spangler:

Add your beautifully articulated! truth resounds in your words!
i read through a couple of the comments above, i have to admit not many, but the idea that race had no hand in this is absolutely outrageous. when white ppl deny institutionalized racism (the only ppl who buy into this theory are wealthy, white liberalesque) it allows our culture to stick it’s head in the sand continuing to allow it to happen and condoning it. also, classism plays a huge part in this whole deal! i appreciate your pointing out exposure to violence and the fight for daily survival those in poverty are exposed to. when we see a cop, he is there to remove someone, not protect someone. fighting for things like food, access to proper medical care and keeping the bills on engulfs our minds, consuming our thoughts, taking away our power to think about long-term solutions to our problems. it is necessary to be hyper-focused on basic needs-food, shelter, heat, transportation, child care, exhaustion, health, mental health-that it is impossible to put energy into anything else. our ghettos grow larger everyday. as public access to proper education decreases, poverty increases. and bc of institutionalized racism, patriarchy, sexism, etc. the ppl most affected by these issues are people of color, immigrants, and mothers. for anyone who denies that these things are real, that it is perpetrated upon us in a way that has been strategically planned out, i would suggest looking at the rate of incarceration of people of color for nonviolent offenses, the rate of literacy in comparison to rich white counterparts, the quality of education overall in low income areas. this has been put in place by those in power to ensure they stay in power by not allowing us the time to look around us and take care of the overall illness, we can only treat the symptoms which come down on us like torrential flood-waters.

Povertenza

Dear Judge,

I know that Davontaye’s actions caused the deaths of four people. But please don’t give him life in prison. He suffers from Povertenza. You may not know about this condition but Povertenza is an illness that people from impoverished socio-economic backgrounds have.

Due to the inability to access quality education and employment, Davontaye’s development has been stifled. This leads to poor decision making and I would further argue that since his neighborhood sees so much death and destruction, that he may even suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome in addition to Povertenza.

Judge, it is clear that Davontaye can not be held responsible for his actions. He needs rehabilitation, not prison. Prison would only worsen his mental condition. 

Sincerely,

J.A.M.

This defense obviously doesn’t work for black  and poor youth. Yet, news outlets are spiraling about 16 year-old  Ethan Couch who caused the deaths of 4 people by…

ron paul is a disgusting racist!!

“Many years ago Ron Paul received a $500 donation from the leader of Stormfront, a racist, white nationalist organization. Ron Paul publicly refused to return the money, and many people saw the fact that he kept it as proof positive that he is indeed a racist.

But is a donation from one person enough to indict him for racism? Honestly, no, probably not. That alone is not enough to indict him for racism. But if you pair that up with 10 quotes directly from Ron Paul that make him sound incredibly racist, it’s hard to believe otherwise. Read the quotes for yourself, and see if you believe Ron Paul is a racist.

1. ?”We don’t think a child of 13 should be held responsible as a man of 23. That’s true for most people, but black males age 13 who have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such.”

 

2. “What else do we need to know about the political establishment than that it refuses to discuss the crimes that terrify Americans on grounds that doing so is racist? Why isn’t that true of complex embezzling, which is 100 percent white and Asian?”

3. ”Six-hundred-thousand Americans died in the senseless Civil War. No, he should not have gone to war. He did this just to enhance and get rid of the original tenet of the Republic.” -Regarding the Civil War

4. ”Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal. These aren’t my figures, that is the assumption you can gather from” the report.”

5. “Contrary to the claims of the supporters of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the sponsors of H.Res. 676, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 did not improve race relations or enhance freedom. Instead, the forced integration dictated by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 increased racial tensions while diminishing individual liberty.” -On the 40th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act

6. “The Criminals who terrorize our cities – in riots and on every non-riot day – are not exclusively young black males, but they largely are.”

7. “I wouldn’t vote against getting rid of the Jim Crow laws.” -When asked if he would have voted for the Civil Rights Act.

8. “Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty and the end of welfare and affirmative action.”

9. “Immigrants can spread diseases for which we may have no immunity. There is also the question of crime and culture. Many immigrants come from countries with different legal structures and are not willing to behave in the way we expect American citizens to behave.”

10. “There is no such thing as a hate crime.” “

wow!

this is so overwhelmingly offensive!  i am not sure what world ron paul lives in…i can’t imagine it is earth, as it is today.  i don’t care the context in which he said these things, they are absolutely racist remarks, and the fact that they are said so flippantly proves he has no care that he is a big ol’ bigot!  this man should not be allowed to be in politics, at all, ever on any platform.  it is obvious that he will not take people of color into consideration when dealing with legislation, and if he does consider them it is in a slanted, hateful way!  his caricature of the big black man criminal, who is ignorant and just wants food stamps is not only ignorant but it is blatantly promoting hatred!  the idea of stopping immigration due to disease and values opposing those of the united states would be laughable if it wasn’t so offensive to what occurred throughout the history of the united states .  has he never been told what happened to the indigenous ppls when exposed to the european immigrants who invaded and went to war with sovereign nations that had been established for centuries?  his denial of hate crimes is, in this gal’s opinion, his consent to lynchings, racially motivated violence that is occurring daily throughout this country.
