I want to thank everyone who has joined me on twitter in letting black lgbtq youth know they are valued, loved, wanted, defended, necessary, and not punchlines or punching bags. those of you who are quoted here, and others, know that this matters. special shoutout to "moonlight" writer and playwright tarell alvin mccraney, writer-activist blair imani, and writer george m. johnson for elevating this social media moment.
thousands of shots are exchanged during the ensuing five-hour gun battle. 3 officers and 6 black panthers are wounded. this time no one is killed.
the raid involved over 300 lapd and swat officers. during the battle, the panthers withstood the police attacks, including attacks from the roof of the building. frustrated, the police arrested #elmergeronimopratt , the panther's deputy minister of defense, on a fabricated robbery and m****r charge that was later dismissed.
in chicago, they were able to shoot hampton through a wall because they had a detailed map of the apartment provided by an fbi informant who had also made sure hampton would be on the other side of that wall by drugging his food the night before.
pratt, a decorated vietnam vet, had used his military training to successfully fortify the building. the 11 los angeles panthers inside the office kept up their resistance for five hours on that december night.
Folks betta get real! black queer, trans, latinx, indigenous, differently abled, jewish, muslim, xtian, yoruba, agnostic, at al, fill those d**n streets! to marginalize their experiences, is wrong!!!!! gender/ethnic/ablelist/religious oppression happens to black people!
we should be outraged at any system of oppression, which disproportionately impacts black bodies! we should pound our fist for victims of police violence (to include s****l violence), domestic violence, human trafficking, queerviolence, transhate, ableist violence, maternal mortality, child abuse, ethnic and religious violence, indigenous violence (including sexual), against black people.
in most metrics, black bodies disproportionately face more racial, sexual, ethnic, and queer/trans violence!
#contentcreatorchallenge#day8 home & economic school fridays is an option!!! pretty much these early release days on wednesdays are inconvenient to parents period. whether you work or don't work... adjusting your schedule for a pick up mid day and scrambling for daycare or out of school time activities is costly. i promise you i check in with the kiddies and ask "do you need a mental health friday"? and we find a way to supplement. hanging out at the public library is a free option. my hope is that in the next 10 year i will open a space actually a compound for knowledge & wisdom - home school for youth, a satellite business center for parents & young adults who are entreprenuers & continue education in economics... 🌍 education + economic development = empowerment 💟 #iamhere#letsgetonwithit#charonsalonservices#reclaimingmelanatedbeauty#reclaimingmelanatedbeautyworldwide#allblacklivesmatter

#contentcreatorchallenge#day7 📽️ #homeschoolfriday with tootie. this little somebody said "i wanna" !! i wanna make my mom some coffee, i wanna make some boiled eggs, i wanna make some quesadilla, i wanna make breakfast. my body said no ma'am to walking and riding the bus to school today. we just went with the flow. today is about home & economics for her. she's the best little assistant to have at the salon as well. she sweeps, she does laundry, she cleans the counters, and the shampoo bowls. she keeps the flow going. but she was asked not to (not by me) so my hope is that she finds a way to not be bored once she gets there. she is such a team player! she is such a contributor to the tribe! she represents the nation of indegenious black women wherever she goes !! people might say no, don't stop. but we know nothing beats a fail like a try! i wish i coupd home school her .. but she enjoys her friends and being a kid kid. i wouldn't take that away, never. she's a reflection of me, her father and her brother. we all put our hands on the clay to mold her by any means necessary 💯 #iamhere#letsgetonwithit#charonsalonservices#reclaimingmelanedbeautyworldwide#allblacklivesmatter this is an interconnected experience... ya understand??? (in my juvie the great voice)
