Black in the Empire
As a middle age dude that grew up in the projects in Queens and has 2 lifelong scars from the police, some of y'all couldn't imagine what they were doing to us before we had phones that could record
I always thought it would be illegal to wildly shoot at a robber where bystanders were at risk and kill a nine year old girl. In Texas it's not. A man who did this was nobilled by a grand jury.

"Once our nation ran on slave labor. But since the end of the Civil War, the country has run on fossil fuels. Every institution of the government has been constructed to exploit and safeguard that power source. It’s not merely that the government won’t confront the climate crisis, but that it is incapable of confronting the climate crisis. To confront it would require the government to go to war against itself. For all practical purposes, the government of the US is the fossil fuel industry."
Happy Birthday Barack Obama, who said of friend George Bush "We are surely a kinder and gentler nation because of you." Over 1 million dead Iraqis would disagree.

On June 25, 1876, a battalion of the 7th Cavalry, led by George Armstrong Custer, was wiped out by an overwhelming force of Lakota, Dakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho.
There are many stories that come from this most famous battle of the Indian Wars. However, the most overlooked account is of the women warriors who fought alongside their male counterparts.
Minnie Hollow Wood, Moving Robe Woman, Pretty Nose (pictured), One-Who-Walks-With-The-Stars, and Buffalo Calf Road Woman were among the more notable female fighters.
Pretty Nose fought with the Cheyenne/Arapaho detachment.
One-Who-Walks-With-The-Stars (Lakota) killed two soldiers trying to flee the fight.
Minnie Hollow Wood earned a Lakota war-bonnet for her participation, a rare honor.
Lakota Moving Robe Woman fought to avenge the death of her brother.
And Cheyenne Buffalo Calf Road Woman holds the distinction of being the warrior who knocked Custer off his horse, hastening the demise of the over-confident Lt. Colonel.
Word has it that Biden will propose granting student loan relief to anyone who enlists in the military. Will the dumbbell
eat it up?
