This is EVERYTHING to me. Like…the joy that comes from someone recognizing her LONGEVITY and not just idolizing the years of her trial. Because she does work NOW you know; fights NOW. TODAY. And sometimes being a martyr is more respected than managing (or coincidentally, if not assassinated) to survive. Those who die fighting matter and those who survive and keep fighting matter.
“Right now, my biggest struggle is sending my son to college. We are short $17,000. I just found out yesterday. He actually did great—he came up with $35,000 in grants and scholarships. But the school is $52,000.”
“That’s a lot of money.”
“Of course, my choice would be a state school, but he wants to study sports medicine, and that happened to be a good program for him. And I’m happy that he came up with everything but the seventeen. He did great. It’s because he is a good kid.”
“Do you have other children?”
“He is in middle school, so I don’t have to worry about that for at least another six years. And he has something to look forward to. That’s his actual hero that he can touch and be around. His brother is his hero.”
CCTV catches pigs planting crack in NYC black man’s store
Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York. Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.
Andrews was arrested in April 2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.
*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*
The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.
FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says.
Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”.
Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.

Maestra: This brief and engaging documentary tells the story of 100,000 Cuban teenagers, most of them girls, who participated in Cuba’s 1961 literacy campaign.
Historical footage and current-day interviews bring the campaign to life. Most compelling to U.S. students will be the stories of the girls themselves, many of them middle school age, who left their families to take on major responsibilities far away.
Fifty years later, the brigadistas reminisce about the independence and self-confidence they gained from the great adventure and the trust the country placed in them—in one year, they taught more than 700,000 people to read and write!

Bernie Sanders What the U.S. Can Learn About Health Care from Other Countries: Other major countries offer better health care at less cost than the United States, according to witnesses who testified on Tuesday at a Senate hearing chaired by Sen. Bernie Sanders. “What this hearing is really about is two fundamental issues. First, the U.S., the wealthiest country on the planet, is the only major industrialized country in the world that does not guarantee health care as a right to its citizens. Should we consider joining the rest of the world? I’d argue we should,” Sanders said. “Second, the U.S. spends twice as much as other countries that have much better health outcomes. What can we learn from these countries?” asked Sanders, chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging.

In a truly free country, the masses would have a voice. But Citizens United, and the entire history of US government, created an oligarchy. OOPS. Everything you believe in about the US (if you grew up here) is false.
