Marissa Alexander denied 'stand your ground' hearing -
freemarissanow:A motion for a second “stand your ground” hearing for Marissa Alexander has been denied, in a ruling made Friday by Judge James Daniel.
Marissa Alexander has been denied a new Stand Your Ground hearing. Yet again, Florida refuses to free this survivor of domestic violence, fails to support women’s right to self defense, and continues to support anti-black racism in the judicial system. Her new trial is still scheduled to begin Dec 8th.
Marissa needs your voices and support more than ever!
Standing Our Ground Week of Action is still on!
July 25-Aug 1: LET’S TAKE ACTION!
This is so fucked up.
Black men your emotions matter
your mental health matters
your physical health matters
your livelihood matters

We should be fine as long as we do not reblog bread.
I’ve rebogged bread.
I have done nothing but reblog bread for the past three days.

First they’ll criticize our slang. Make us seem uneducated for using it, when the reality is they’re mad we can code switch. Then they’ll use our slang mockingly. Like they really don’t want to use it, but it’s so absurd they can’t help themselves. Then they’ll make money off our slang, t-shirts, cups, bracelets, etc. Then they’ll convince us it was never really ours. It’s been public domain forever.
Feel free to replace the word “Slang” with neighborhoods, and music too. — (via okaywork)

Watching MMFD with my best guy friend: Series 2 Commentary -
Our marathon of MMFD concluded last night. There were some laughs, a few tears, and (of course) some great comments by my best guy friend:
*laughs uncontrollably* “That’s amazing!” *continues laughing for another minute straight*
Why did you do this to him?
