HOW THE CIA PUSHED DRUGS IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY - For the better part of a decade, a San Francisco Bay Area drug ring sold tons of cocaine to the Crips and Bloods street gangs of Los Angeles and funneled millions in drug profits to a Latin American guerrilla army run by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.

Please…don’t tell me you all did not know this? Why do you think cocaine lite was invented to be renamed CRACK? This was done to make sure the price point would garner the MARKET they wished to cull and destroy. All done to cull the inner city herd. It is sick. What is really sick are the sheep that went along with it on a self destructive path further enabling these bastards.

SG, sad that I still call you guys by that name? Well, shrugs, lol. Yeah, this is one of those #staywoke posts. #mostpeopleknowwhoaretherealdrugdealers!

They flooded the streets to annihilate the black community

Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

A cell phone video shows a January incident in St. Paul, Minnesota. Police officers rough up a black man who was apparently just sitting in a skyway before being approached. He had been waiting to pick up his kids.

John Iadarola: “That’s hard to watch.” 

Michael Shure: “It’s important to watch, though, because for any type of change to happen, you have to watch all of this. You have to see the dogs in 1963 in Kelly Ingram Park in Birmingham and be appalled by it. You have to see John Lewis getting struck over the head on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama and be appalled by it to see that there needs to be change someplace. You have to watch these videos and see that it is a reality.”

"Elmo is with his good friend, Lupita. They are talking about all the great things about their skin. For example, Elmo’s skin just happens to be very ticklish. Lupita’s skin happens to be a beautiful brown color. Skin can come in all different shades and colors. Isn’t skin just the best? However, ticklish or smooth or black or brown or white or tan, be sure to love the skin you are in." 

I love this. I LOVE THIS. I love this. Children need to see this. Adults need to see this.
