Having been on a date with me before I would 100% say that I would date me tbh

unhistorical:

Interviewer: But the question is more, how do you get there? Do you get there by confrontation, violence?

Davis: Oh, is that the question you were asking? Yeah see, that’s another thing. When you talk about a revolution, most people think violence, without realizing that the real content of any revolutionary thrust lies in the principles and the goals that you’re striving for, not in the way you reach them. On the other hand, because of the way this society’s organized, because of the violence that exists on the surface everywhere, you have to expect that there are going to be such explosions. You have to expect things like that as reactions. If you are a black person and live in the black community all your life and walk out on the street everyday seeing white policemen surrounding you… when I was living in Los Angeles, for instance, long before the situation in L.A ever occurred, I was constantly stopped. No, the police didn’t know who I was. But I was a black women and I had a natural and they, I suppose thought I might be “militant.”

And when you live under a situation like that constantly, and then you ask me, you know, whether I approve of violence. I mean, that just doesn’t make any sense at all. Whether I approve of guns.

I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. Some very, very good friends of mine were killed by bombs, bombs that were planted by racists. I remember, from the time I was very small, I remember the sounds of bombs exploding across the street. Our house shaking. I remember my father having to have guns at his disposal at all times, because of the fact that, at any moment, we might expect to be attacked. The man who was, at that time, in complete control of the city government, his name was Bull Connor, would often get on the radio and make statements like, “Niggers have moved into a white neighborhood. We better expect some bloodshed tonight.” And sure enough, there would be bloodshed. After the four young girls who lived, one of them lived next door to me…I was very good friends with the sister of another one. My sister was very good friends with all three of them. My mother taught one of them in her class. My mother—in fact, when the bombing occurred, one of the mothers of one of the young girls called my mother and said, “Can you take me down to the church to pick up Carol? We heard about the bombing and I don’t have my car.” And they went down and what did they find? They found limbs and heads strewn all over the place. And then, after that, in my neighborhood, all the men organized themselves into an armed patrol. They had to take their guns and patrol our community every night because they did not want that to happen again.

TRIGGER WARNING: THIS VIDEO IS GRAPHIC

Video of the Police shooting that killed 

Kajieme Powell  in St. Louis 08/19/2014

(I hate posting things like this but it needs to be seen!!)

*EDIT: THIS IS A VIDEO OF HIM BE SHOT AND KILLED

WARNING TO ALL!!!

Oh my god I’m literally crying.

My soul hurts

Bruh count how many fucking shots they unloaded, it wasn’t even that serious bruh

They killed him and they still putting him in cuffs

You can’t deny this evidence and I hope those cops lose their jobs, never to work as law enforcement again.

Cried. Hard. Plain disbelief.

The police story was the man was 2-4 feet away and had the knife raised in his hand. But clearly he was way farther than that and his hands were by his side. These cops are obviously pussy, did they both have to let off 9 rounds? The first shot would have made him drop the knife and him and his partner could have handled it from there. But no. Trigger happy police had to go overkill and even cuffed him after he was dead.

i’m crying i don’t want to be alive in this world i fucking hate these piece of shit trigger happy racists
