1. Eric Garner executed on July 17th, 2014. Put in illegal choke hold and strangled by the NYPD

2. Pregnant lady gets put in an illegal chokehold by an NYPD officer for “illegally grilling” while her seven year old daughter watches July 27th, 2014

3. NYPD enters wrong house and drags a naked woman across the floor, then pepper sprays her four year old grandson August 2nd, 2014.

4. Man shot and killed by police for holding a toy gun in a Walmart, Dayton, Ohio - August 6th, 2014

5. Unarmed Black teen shot ten times by the Ferguson Police while walking home with his friend from the convenience store - August 9th, 2014

Since July 17th there has been five reported occurrences exemplifying the police and American justice system’s lack of reverence for Black life. These are the five stories that were able to attract at least minimal attention. Who knows what is going on out there covered up (like the Ferguson police is trying to do with Mike Brown’s murder), unrecorded, and unknown. In the past 23 days the police have perpetrated the humiliation, degradation, and murdering of Black dignity,souls, and people. Knowledge is power. Do not rely on mainstream media to give you the full/accurate story. They will always be complicit in the devaluing of Black life because Blackness has been criminalized in America. Please spread these stories and add any more that you know of under the hashtag #badges are the new hoods. We need to start documenting, and spreading information. They will try to silence us as they did to Ramsey Orta, and Alba Lekaj, the people who filmed the NYPD harasing and murdering Eric Garner. But united we can make a difference.  Knowledge is power. Stay woke Black America, Stay woke.

this happened in the past 23 days

because hiking on Saturdays is my thing.

And Great Falls is my all time favorite place to hike.

Rae came along, it was her first time.

She loves the outdoors just as much as me.

Which made this trip just as exciting. No complaints. Just the two of us!

5 Positive Things About Myself

I was tagged by my favorite poet/ person on tumblr @sheed-Emilio

1. My heart is pure. It’s capable of housing so many things/people/places.

2. The found freedom in loving myself, openly and unapologetically.

3. I was brave enough to declare my LOVE for Allah openly. Which meant losing the man I’ve loved for the past 7 years. Faith.

4. Accepting my nomadic self. I’m a wanderer, truly. And that is okay.

5. I’ve been the most transparent this year. And I feel absolutely liberated.
