ASSATA SHAKUR KILLED SOMEBODY. WHY WOULD U PARDON HER?!? NELSON MANDELA WAS PEACEFUL, THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE OF SHAKUR.
Do you even know who Nelson Mandela is or why he was locked up in the first place? He co founded the militant group Umkhonto we Sizwe that acted as the armed wing of the ANC.
In his I am prepared to die speech he said.
"At the beginning of June 1961, after a long and anxious assessment of the South African situation, I, and some colleagues, came to the conclusion that as violence in this country was inevitable, it would be unrealistic and wrong for African leaders to continue preaching peace and non-violence at a time when the government met our peaceful demands with force.
This conclusion was not easily arrived at. It was only when all else had failed, when all channels of peaceful protest had been barred to us, that the decision was made to embark on violent forms of political struggle, and to form Umkhonto we Sizwe. We did so not because we desired such a course, but solely because the government had left us with no other choice. In the Manifesto of Umkhonto published on 16 December 1961, which is exhibit AD, we said:
So no, he was not Mother Teresa, he was a freedom fighter. One who the US declared a terrorist and was on the US watch list until removed in 2008.
I can’t with this news crap anymore. I can not. *changes channel*
They basically decided to give a middle finger to his memory and legacy and I can’t with all this talk about him like he was a cuddly teddybear. Like, how do you have a man who fought a VIOLENT institution, fought for his people, and the most you want to say about him is that he was ‘nice’ and then you mention his work in passing? This is just lazy reporting. They gave more information about frickin’ Amy Winehouse when she died than they are Mandela.
Can we not take this time to be elitist pricks and shame those who don’t know as much as others might about Madiba? All that isn’t necessary. Yes its a shame they don’t know. Take some time and gives the basics, rather than being an asshole about it. We all have to learn something sometime. Its not like they’ll tell you about him in schools…
“He is now resting. He is now at peace. Our nation hast lost its greatest son. Our people have lost its father.”—Nelson Mandela has died, South African President Jacob Zuma announces. (via think-progress)
The Beyhive wants to keep their resident Queen Beyoncé far from Kim Kardashian and crew. They were in an uproar on social media when the two were pictured together during Kanye and Jay Z’s “Watch The Throne” tour and now, they’ve created a petition to stop Beyoncé from attending Kim Kardashian’s wedding.
The petition reads:
"As you all know by now Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have sadly been in the news for their “engagement". Kim Kardashian and her disgusting family are known for their rise to fame for doing absolutely nothing… Now we must do all in our power to stop we must do all in our power to stop Beyoncé from attending that god forsaken wedding, since her husband Jay Z is BFF’s with Kanye he probably wants both of them to go. […] Do us a favor Bey and rain check that train wreck of wedding.
Here are a few ways to get out of going:
1. Extend The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour for as long as possible- Be on tour for their wedding. Tell them your busy and business always comes first.
2. Blue Ivy has the flu- You cant attend a wedding when your baby is sick.
3. You have something better to do- You are Beyoncé you always have something better to do than to attend a Kim Kardashian wedding.
4. Say that you have a meeting with the President and the First Lady- Who would say no to the president, especially when your other choice is to attend a Kim Kardashian wedding.
5. Simply say no- Tell the bitch no. Simple as that.
I really need to learn to be happy in the life that I’m living. I think once I do that things will begin to fall together. I don’t have all the things I want, but I have what I need and that’s good too. I focus on the negative a lot because joblessness is depressing but I have to do better.
I was at a party with all my friends graduation night, and one of the girls had a really big crush on one of my best friends. He had been avoiding her, and the subject all together, for a couple months because we were all friends and he wanted to keep it that way. Also, subsequently, she was manic depressive, and very, very, crazy. Him and I, my girlfriend, and one other friend had planned to camp in his van that night, and somehow, word caught on. She was so desperate for his attention that when she heard we were sleeping in the van, she got in it, got naked, and wouldn’t leave. We finally took pity on her and let her stay. My other friend opted out and decided to go home, and my girlfriend and I tried to sleep. She kept talking about how cool we all were, and how her life was perfect right now. Eventually, he finally gave in and had sex with her, right in front of my girlfriend and I. They tried to be discrete, but failed miserably. It turned out that the real reason he had been avoiding it was because he had a small penis, and was a premature ejaculator. It took her all the time it takes to say, “Is it in?” for him to awkwardly cum, and then look incredibly shameful. She spent the next several hours crying outside in the pitch-black darkness.
