Random thoughts of a free Black mind, v. 259

Ferguson, Mo. – Black folks there can’t get it together. They could have started over by electing new city councilors; Black voters didn’t turn out. Recently, they attempted to dump the current mayor, James Knowles, who sat by as Black residents were traffic-ticketed and criminalized by its lily-White police force to balance the city’s budget.

Even the dogs get fed

I believe that all judges should be women, because women are the most judgmental creatures on earth! The greatest victims of female judgments are males.
