Enforcement Officials Beat & Kidnap a 12-yo Black Girl in Front of her Residence, Claiming She Was a Prostitute
"When her mother and father came outside after hearing her cries for help she was desperately holding a tree with one arm while plainclothes officers were beating her in the head, neck and throat.
Dymond Milburn, now 20-years-old, was an honor student attending advanced classes at Austin Middle School, when her life would be forever scarred by Galveston police.”
None of the enforcement officials who terrorized and beat Milburn were penalized.
But its only the men right?

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.
oh for fucks SAKE
Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…
He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.
and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…
Exactly! This is evil.
Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen
Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the end of the article.
This dude was cosplaying.
He was dressed up in a costume.
Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?
Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

“Logic - Under Pressure” - Album Cover illustration for Def Jam Recordings by Sam SprattI usually don’t like to give much context or explainer for anything I’m illustrating, but this is an exception. When Logic reached out to have me paint the cover art for his debut album under Def Jam (this is the first of 2 covers) he started by just telling me his story.He grew up in poverty in a very broken home filled with violence, abuse, drugs, his brother dealt crack to his own father, mother was stabbed, he was kicked out of school, out of the house, all by age 17, and when these systems failed him, he turned to his friend to stay in his basement — with a couple others close to him, he sat down and started to write — to make music. He showed me a few grainy low-res photos which was all he had from this basement — enough to look at and see how the room was laid out, but little else. There just wasn’t any sort of documentation of that specific moment/feeling he had there — which despite everything that had happened prior, was a positive and warm memory. So he explained to me this quiet scene in the basement of him reading his recently written lyrics off his phone while his two friends sat there, listened, and the sun started to go down and bleed through the window. He described some of the things that filled this basement like an old thrift store painting of a car, an ugly yellow moth-eaten sofa, perpetually twisted-up window blinds, a stolen street sign, the colors, the materials of the desk, stereo, and speakers, down to some of the stickers that were pasted over it. And then he asked me to recreate that.So this album cover was about a month worth of researching, sketching, and painting but not for a glitzy portrait like I assumed I’d be doing as rap album art — instead it was piecing together the mood, color, feeling, action, and setting of a very vivid, fairly unexceptional, yet important memory that a camera just never captured. I’ll have more to share in the near future as to how this was made in-depth, the back cover, and the other album artwork we worked on together, but I thought I’d share a bit about what went into this one. When you hear the album, it’ll make even more sense as it has this amazing narrative throughout the whole thing that we worked hard together to sync up on the art side. If you’ve never listened to Logic, here’s a small taste of what to expect on a couple awesome tracks: HERE and HERE with Childish Gambino.

Cards Against Humanity.
I’m a big fan. Well, I bought this.
It’s great. It hold all of my shit. But it holds something else too.
If you have it, open your box.
You see how I started to tear away at the top of the box there?
Do it carefully.
There’s something in there. What could that be?
There’s a card.
There is a card literally hidden in the top of the box.
But what card?
I fucking love these people.
Earlier today, someone asked the question:
Do you believe true power comes from the ability to control other people?
Which is what we see happening in the world today through wars, religion, politics, and corporations.
Here is my opinion about what true power is.
I see true power, not only in taking responsibility for your own destiny, but understanding also, the interdependence of all life. Nature itself, is a prime example. If it stops raining, we all die, if trees stopped growing, we all die, the sun stops shining, we all die… Even just one species going extinct, can cause another to go extinct, or to evolve. Nature has this very fine art of interdependence fine tuned to perfection. It is a perfect system, as close to perfection as we can ever get. The power, is dispersed among each system, and species, and as long as they respect their power, and the power of others, things will flow smoothly.
What we are seeing today, with human beings, is the attempt to control the other systems and species. From weather modification, to over fishing the oceans, pollution, and cutting down the amazon, and factory farming, the exploitation of resources, all for something called money. A piece of paper, that we put an imaginary number on, and tell ourselves has value. The idea that money has power, and plays any role at all in nature, is a human error.
Money is not a natural occurrence. It is man made. So while humanity has put all its bets into the monetary system, and can’t imagine life without money, nature will live on. True power resides in respecting nature, and living according to natural laws. Which means using technology in harmony with nature…. Solar power over fossil fuels and nuclear, permaculture over standard farming, natural healing over allopathic medicine, creating abundance of food, instead of scarcity of it, focus on the greater good of all rather than whats best for one. Be it a race, country, or religion. True power, is interdependence, and living in accordance to that understanding.
Can humanity grasp this way of life?
