I forgot I have this app…
So there’s this sign clear as day but we’re all the way back her…can you not read….I want to cough on everyone around me
Day 2…throwback. I was so tiny the only thing that fit me were cabbage patch doll diapers. The only reason I lived was the grace of God & the prayers of my family #youdontknowmystory #thereismorethanmeetstheeye #youdbesurprised #beyondthankful
I could literally pass out right now. I’m so not looking forward to having to be at work at 6:10am.
Tweet that allegedly went out on @dineshdsouza’s twitter account but has since been deleted.
The only thing I’m doing is challenging myself to be & do better. I don’t have time to watch other people. I’m too amazed by what God is doing with me.
There is no argument that can be made to justify the killing of Renisha McBride as Whites ride under the protection of the obliviousness created by White privilege and a justice system that exists to uphold White supremacy, not fairness and certainly not justice.
I have been accosted by drunk White men and recently had my privacy invaded at home by a random White woman, which I wrote about here: Unlike Renisha McBride, A White Woman Came To My Door (Not Even For Help) And Lived Another Day. I did not murder any of them. Whites have spit on my life since childhood and I have not taken a life and most certainly not for someone knocking on my door. Yet Whites I’ve seen who seem to cheer her death have the audacity to attempt righteous indignation about her toxicology report released to the media for mass use even as “54 year old homeowner” has replaced this man’s name? Whites are really trying to have righteous indignation regarding alcohol? Do they know what they are like when drunk? Do they know the chaos they cause? Do they know the hell of dealing with them in a corporate workspace, college campus, restaurant or neighborhood when drunk? The entitlement and White privilege plus lack of inhibition? The hell that causes people.
A murder victim is being treated as a criminal. Still no charges filed and she’s already been buried. Yet the smear campaign against her continues and the quasi-anonymity for the killer continues. In a White supremacist society, Black victims are treated like criminals and Black criminals are treated like animals.
And since a part of White supremacy includes the toddler-like nature that many Whites approach race with, all of your derailment and excuses are covered here so no need to add them to my post: I don’t care if “all” Whites are not like this; no I am not the “real” racist; no, Black people aren’t racist towards you; no, racism isn’t just insults; no, this incident is not isolated; no, this is not about drones or President Obama—mentioned as a way for you to erase what has happened here; no this is not about the White supremacist label “Black on Black” crime that you think Black people are “happy” about, when most crime is intraracial (including “White on White” crime) and Black people who harm Whites pay heavily when Whites who harm Black people do not; and no, this is not about some “generic” issue where “anyone” is capable of doing badly. Race cannot be erased from a history that used our blood as its ink for its story.
I am tired of even having to write a disclaimer on my posts because your White supremacist petulance includes a lack of critical thinking, lack of boundaries, repetition of easily refuted derailment and a lack of self-control. I am…tired. I cannot even have a conversation on something like this—which is so stressful already—without having to address bigots every step of the way. Fuck you for this.

All of my posts on this are tagged under her name: Renisha McBride
Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff
My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk.
My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2
My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits.
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
dont be embarrassed to reblog, this post could be life saving
Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s.
As a cancer patient myself, who found my own cancer through a supposed LARPing injury last year, i know how scary it is and how important it is to catch it early. Please spread this around!
