   The stench of  beaten human flesh can burn your eyes,  and the disgust of unjust blood shed can haunt you forever. An  unjust death robs a family of sleep and comprehension of their comfortable society. New Years 2009 , Oscar and some of his friends where boarding the Bay Area Transit System in San Francisco, California.  Oscar Grant, 22 years old suffered a humiliating and merciless beating without provocation. The passengers of Fruitvaile pleaded for the cops, “Stop, Leave Em‘ Alone.”

         You can hear Billy clubs, cursing smashing and tearing at him and his friends. All ears and eyes are witnessing a lynching in 2009 from the ones that are supposed to “Protect and Serve.” Oscar Grant lost his life by traveling on the transit system. In the video you can look at  him before walking and hear his voice. Oscar never walks out of Fruitvale. The entire station validated  the racist, and brutality police officers delivered in the BART station that night. The actions that occurred on New Years 2009, are now witnessed and relived in theatres so individuals can experience the moment that was ignored in the media. Oscar Grant  was murdered like it was Jim Crow South, in 1913. The police man screams, “You Bitch Ass Nig…”

               In South Carolina, my great-grandmother shared  stories of violence, suffering , lynching and raping of our women. You could only sit back and  watch in horror. She pointed out roads, and sheds that were used for hanging black men when she was a little girl. The black men would vanish, and later  be found beyond recognition.  Even, with the Murderer  staring right in their face, they were powerless!  No one wanted to meet their demise.  No one wanted to  end up hanging from a tree, so you bit your lip in silence, and sent other male family members to”find him” because they already knew he was  gone, forever.

              Now in 2013 we are reminded that we still have “Strange Fruit” in America. We  still has a lynching problem, now ropes are obsolete but bullets tear into the hearts of  minority men at a steady rate. Oscar  Grant’ obituary only exist because of the unfair stigma and hate that permeates are sensibilities of our urban stereotypes.

           Innocent bystanders knew that Johannes Mehserle and the other BART Lynching team members , were under no circumstances dealing with a man who was resisting arrest. The officer defiantly and criminally created more of a mental segregation of police and ethnic men in this society. 

           Thankfully for cellular phone footage; the  life of Oscar Grant and his legacy  will  be remain untarnished . Oscar  has a daughter that will one day watch this video, and realize that no one can flip  flop this story.  Her father is not to  blame, The  police mans’ defense,  was a travesty and no accident, and there is not a reason in hell, or any other justification for her daddy’s  death.  We need atonement  and  ACTION!

       Her father, Oscar Grant III died  innocently and in a racist  nature that reminds us just because we believe in unity, some of us will never embrace all races and backgrounds. Urban men and police have this fine line, and it will always get crossed. No matter the action,  the officer will get a slap on the wrist, while urban men are getting a casket door closed above their heads.

 He was tasered, handcuffed, forced to the ground while begging for his life before the fatal gun shot wound.

Oscar Grant  received a bullet in his body face down and  handcuffed.

NO EXCUSE!

The video explains the verdict, that rivals the infamous Trayvon Martin and Casey Anthony  case.

Justice seems to be in hibernation, and currently these verdicts are just insulting our intelligence.

south carolina’s zachary hammond, murdered by policeman***messymandella***


 
“Zachary Hammond was shot and killed by a police official during a sting operation. The official is unidentified and the department refuses to release his information. Hammond was going through the drive thru at Hardee’s and the police officer suspected him of illegal activity. The officer blocked the car, but evidence shows that the officer shot through the driver’s side window and his life was not in immediate danger. Ana Kasparian (The Point), Ben Mankiewicz (What the Flick!?), and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.
 
Why does it seem the mainstream media is largely ignoring this? Is there a racial double standard?
 
“Zachary Hammond — an unarmed white man — was fatally shot by a police officer in South Carolina in July. Social media users have raised awareness of his death with the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag, but his family is angry over the lack of greater outrage.

When a police officer in South Carolina opened fire on 19-year-old Zachary Hammond in July, the official account was a familiar one: The officer feared he was about to be run over.” Young Turks

 

Update:Teen in McKinney Pool Party Incident Speaks On Police Brutality***messymandella***


We will be prisoners in this system. Innocent men and women of color are murdered and brutalized mentally deficient unarmed men are murdered, without an indictment.
The parents called for help from police. Now they will be in a morgue and blaming themselves for calling the police.  Children playing in  bathing suits are not dangerous  issues, and even after being asking leave by the other friends, the police ignored the victim’s terrified screams and pleas and still tackled a young scare girl,  front of them. Why does the marching, praying and exposing being ignored. I am starting to believe racist KKK members are masking themselves, just to legally torture minorities and get a salary to enjoy themselves, by humiliation of our people.
 
The longer the government does not step in and protect us, innocent people will continue to die. We are making sacrifices and going above and beyond, and the news outlets and government are in no position to offer any substantial reason this is happening? We are arguing and frustrated even on social media.
Who will help us to stay alive?  We will march, and a few days later they murder or become brutalized,again.
 
cop case
 
Who and when did law enforcement get free passes to beat us down to the ground?
 
The judicial system protects those that decide if it will be an indictment. We don’t learn anything about them until after the criminal cop has been saved from prison. Why are the police, pulling out their guns, when know one else is armed and a little girl will never be a threat?

mykki blanco reveals his hIV Status to the music industry. ***messymandella***

mykki-blanco1
      

       When the world is under the impression that frivolous and meaning less sexual encounters are not reckless, it takes a rapper with HIV to bring a reality check to the rest of the world.  Mykki Blanco has informed the world of her HIV status. He possesses a  confidence and  courage, but regret to inform the world of his HIV Status, sooner .
 The openly  infected  HIV positive person understands that their career and well-being are in danger, but their health is important but it has to be revealed after you have gained success, because record companies and the public are afraid to take a risk and the reputation of the artist determines their overall success. In the 1980’s when GRID now knows as AIDS destroyed  the Art World and only destroyed gay men and they would lose their lives, while wearing the purple Kaposi’s Sarcoma Spots that would indicate to anyone familiar with the disease their health . The purple spots foreshadowed the AIDS victims early demise.

 

“I’ve been HIV positive since 2011, my entire career. F— stigma and hiding in the dark, this is my real life,”  “I’m healthy. I’ve toured the world 3 times but I’ve been living in the dark, it’s time to actually be as punk as I say I am.”
             Now  AIDS and HIV are a part of the urban  scene  in  2015 and the disease itself is destroying families  and costing  millions, but reckless life is deemed more important.  
Maybe if we were aware of the men and women that died painful  deaths over 25 years ago, we would value our bodies more?

 

Maybe, if all possible we learn  that by searching for just sexual encounters is empty and sets the tone of self-devaluation?
                It is highly doubtful that AIDS will ever disappear but as a HIV negative person, it is still  a  fight that I will continue to speak on, due to the state of the world we are living in. Your business is your business, but your sexual behavior determines the lifestyle and legacy you leave behind.
We can’t assume that beauty doesn’t go hand in hand with criminal transmission.
 The negative stigma of AIDS is a problem in the African-American Culture.  As a little girl, I watched family members list every other disease but AIDS when we would lose a loved one. We don’t want to admit that we as a culture are in danger.
          Pretty lips are a weakness, not protecting yourself is simply weak  minded.  When you are asked to list sexual partners, will your  list of partners be presented in a brochure or  will have as many pages as a phone book?
            Don’t endanger your lives, and inform your partners on your AIDS status, it is not fair to the person,who has decided to play Russian Roulette with their life. Accidents happen, and condoms break , but no protection is insane and stupid.

However, Stupidity should still come with a social responsibility and we must end the spread in our communities.
