Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People
I had to reblog this again because it just reduced me to tears.
As most of you know, I am an attorney. And I am an attorney licensed in Minnesota. This is the state where I took an oath last year to uphold state and federal laws and to protect the rights of the citizens.
It PAINS me to see this. To see these unjust cops who I for all intents & purposes, have to stand along side. When they are abusing EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of POWER. Minneapolis/St. Paul have BEEN a war zone. I’m ashamed. I’m embarrassed.
Not all officers are bad. Please don’t let that be the take away. But police brutality is VERY FUCKING REAL.
Watch this. If this doesn’t move you, if this doesn’t make you cry out in agony and want to change the world, I don’t know what will.
too distressing. the cries of my people 💔
Trigger warning for police brutality and antiblackness
Last year, 22-time Emmy award-winning reporter John Stofflet posted this news video he created for KING-TV in 2004, featuring Paul Smith and his artistic talents.
I… I would vote for Gonzo Huggingstuff.
If you do, his Presidency will be wonderful and he’ll eventually get namechecked on our Presidential playlist, where you’ll discover everything from Andrew Jackson’s invincibility to Lyndon Baines Johnson’s penis.
Oh and subscribing to Cracked on YouTube brings all things hilarious straight to your feed, saving you the trouble of looking for them. Kind of like how this sentence saying Cleveland’s 2nd VP was Adlai Stevenson I saves you the trouble of looking it up.
She was one of my idols growing up
Best scene in the Kill Bill movies, not gonna lie. I can temporarily ignore the rest of the Orientalist mess just for this right here.
Forever mad she didn’t slaughter Kiddo and change the path of the movie.
Can you imagine how much of a twist/how much fucking better that movie would have been?
What I loved about the Kill Bill movies was that Tarantino had so many opportunities to subvert so many tropes and just completely ignored them in favor of his Orientalism/Spaghetti Western fetish and his weird obsession with Uma Thurman.
If Oren had killed Kiddo, then what? They didn’t really give the other Deadly Vipers (with the exception of Elle Driver) enough personality, depth, and motivation to continue in a revenge-themed plot (and by this time Oren had literally everything she wanted). Elle could have killed Kiddo EASILY, as could Budd, but they didn’t.
Vernita was the one I was mad about, because she could have killed Kiddo too and changed the entire course of the film.
Like maybe Vernita or Oren should have been the protagonists.
But as it stands, there’s the loose end of Vernita’s daughter Nikki, who Tarantino said will be the star of the next Kill Bill film which as far as I know has been shelved.
