A black man rides a bus restricted to whites only, in Durban. In an act of resistance to South Africa’s apartheid policies, 1986.

look at their faces. upset that this black man dared to exist in their space

It’s sad how terrified he looks.

the fear in his eyes man :/ 

not even “their space”. Europeans invaded South Africa, separated Black people from their own country and dared to be aghast at their want to considered humans. This was just 28 years ago, guys!! 

and it just “ended” in 1994. this wasn’t 1000 years ago.

This story is on my blog and Facebook, but it’s not as big as thee Mike Browns, Ferguson or Trayvon Martins type of news, but it’s tremendously huge to me and some. This young boy dealt with bullying which is a major silent killer of the society we live in. He grew weary and took a gun to school to take his own life in the boys bathroom. This story was reported two weeks ago. Shaq was the young boy nickname as a metaphor bc he actually was bullied bc he had growing challenges, he was very small to be 14yrs old, his bodied wasn’t found until 11pm later that night…which is a mystery bc all day no one didn’t notice he was missing or concern. What makes the story more said is his parents moved to Florida from New York to stop the bullies attacking their son which apparently still didn’t work. Also they just buried their 3week old baby and now they will bury their middle son Shaq. My heart is extremely heavy, and hits to close to home for me. Suicide and bullying are massive silent killers. I want everyone to speak out against bullying and suicide. #RIPSHAQ #LAMARHAWKINS #SUICIDE #BULLYING 💔

Rest easy baby.

Jesus, that poor child and his family. Lord cover them and keep them in this time.

Niggas ain’t shit…

At least my congressman, John Lewis, did the right thing with this one. So did Hank Johnson, and Barbara Lee from California.

This should serve as a friendly reminder to black people: not every black person will use their power to help you. I’m willing to bet that the majority of black people in the upper echelons of government and business aren’t here for you. They made it, so you are no longer their concern.

Stay woke.

thats fucked up
