Draw Your (S)words

20 years old. Full of rage and love and fear.

“Don’t tell me I am too young to love. I’ve experienced both the fire of love and lived amongst the disparity of its ashes. This soul has burned in its flames for far too long for you to tell me I was not capable of it.”

—   these third degree burns asked not of age, but of will. (via gham-geen)

Probably the most insecure person on the planet. It’s disgusting.

That’s enough blogging for tonight

    We have to make the world see that the problem that we’re confronted with is a problem for humanity. It’s not a Negro problem, it’s not an American problem, you and I have to make it a world problem, make the world aware that there’ll be no peace on this earth as long as our human rights are being violated in America. Then the world will have to step in and try and see that our human rights are respected and recognized. We have to create a situation that will explode this world sky-high unless we are heard from when we ask for some kind of recognition and respect as human beings. This is all we want—to be a human being. If we can’t be recognized and respected as a human being, we have to create a situation where no human being will enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.    If you’re not for that, you’re not for freedom. It means you don’t even want to be a human being. You don’t want to pay the price that is necessary. And you shouldn’t even be allowed around us other humans if you don’t want to pay the price. You should be kept in the cotton patch where you’re not a human being. You’re an animal that belongs in the cotton patch like a horse and a cow, or a chicken, or a possum, if you’re not ready to pay the price that is necessary to be paid for recognition and respect as a human being.    Brothers, the price is death, really. The price to make others respect your human rights is death. You have to be ready to die or you have to be ready to take the lives of others. This is what old Patrick Henry meant when he said liberty or death. Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, or kill me. Treat me like a man, or kill me. This is what you have to say. Respect me, or put me to death. But when you start to put me to death, we’re both going to die together. You have to say that.— Malcolm X, July 5, 1964http://malcolmxfiles.blogspot.com/

i notice this guy primarily targets black men. 

obviously to get a negative response.

then comments under his videos scream

"its just a prank!!!"

"black people are so aggressive!!!"

*extreme side eye*

Black People are not props/characters in your skits.

I hope everyone remembers Hillary Clinton’s passionate defense of Israel’s war crimes and total silence on Ferguson when she’s running for president in two years.

Who is really using human shields? The IDF of course.

I think the most ironic thing about this whole “Hamas uses human shields” allegation, is that the IDF is notorious for using Palestinians as human shields.

This is far from unusual:

B’Tselem: IDF uses Palestinians as human shield.

B’Tselem: IDF used Palestinian girl as human shield in Nablus.

Two IDF soldiers charged with using 9 year old human shield in Gaza.

Video showing IDF using Palestinians as human shields in Gaza.

Israel has constantly used this allegation not only against civilians in Gaza, but also when it bombed civilian populations in Lebanon during the 2006 war. Witness accounts and international rights organizations have stated time and time again that no evidence to this has been found either in Lebanon or in Gaza.

But somehow, the word of Israel, a country that needs to hire people to spread its propaganda online, still has a shred of credibility.

The first example took place 2006, the second one in 2007, and the third one in 2008.

Are they doing this now in Operation Protective Edge?

These are only a few examples. Untold amounts of this happens and goes unreported.

You want something from “protective edge”?

Knock yourself out.

“Too often, Islam is portrayed as something like a religious country club - exclusive, like it’s a religion only for the “perfect” people. It’s not. Islam is for broken people. To mend hearts and heal souls.”
