My friend is living with me as of 30min ago now, I already feel like this is not a good idea seeing how we had to lug his shit across Brooklyn and Manhattan and he has yet to grasp how much he is putting on me. Atleast this dude is getting a job Saturday cause I don’t do freeloaders :-/
I said Martin Luther King said
I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: ‘I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action’; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.’ Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection
— Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Lamentably, it is an historical fact that privileged groups seldom give up their privileges voluntarily. Individuals may see the moral light and voluntarily give up their unjust posture; but, as Reinhold Niebuhr has reminded us, groups tend to be more immoral than individuals.
We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
— Martin Luther King, Jr. Letter from a Birmingham Jail
and um he did so
Less than 3 miles from where Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, another young black man was gunned down by police this afternoon in North St. Louis.
That was supposed to be just a quick and simple mermaid drawing, but then I did a background. What’s gotten into me?!
More black mermaids, please. ^_^

JUGGS - The Place To Be
The following text and above picture from Trent Kelly’s Out In The Open:
Just Us Guys and Gals, or JUGGS for short, was the name of a East Coast social organization back in the 1930s. Membership was made up of Afro American men and women. By all outside appearances, JUGGS was the average nondescript social organization where professional men and women came to socialize, network, and throw the occasional fancy dress ball. These appearances were deceiving. This particular social club was made up of gays and lesbians. To onlookers from the street, straight couples were always seen entering and exiting the JUGGS premises as members mad every effort to “pass.” One sex used the other as a cover, often going so far as to wed each other to keep up the appearance of being a straight couple and keep questions from friends and family at bey. Behind the safety of its closed doors, freedom was found to live momentarily outside the closet and maybe find that special same gender romantic relationship in a secure environment absent from the fear of misreading the signs and mistaking a straight person as gay or lesbian.

I remember when they were reporting the looting during the London riots they managed to not show or focus on white looters
