hmm….

Do you ever feel like you were building a life or a home or whatever and working up to something and then one day you start to feel like you don’t have any ground to stand on? Like all the sudden you’re not meshing with that life and you feel alienated from it. Yeah….starting to feel that way again.

Who is really using human shields? The IDF of course.

I think the most ironic thing about this whole “Hamas uses human shields” allegation, is that the IDF is notorious for using Palestinians as human shields.

This is far from unusual:

B’Tselem: IDF uses Palestinians as human shield.

B’Tselem: IDF used Palestinian girl as human shield in Nablus.

Two IDF soldiers charged with using 9 year old human shield in Gaza.

Video showing IDF using Palestinians as human shields in Gaza.

Israel has constantly used this allegation not only against civilians in Gaza, but also when it bombed civilian populations in Lebanon during the 2006 war. Witness accounts and international rights organizations have stated time and time again that no evidence to this has been found either in Lebanon or in Gaza.

But somehow, the word of Israel, a country that needs to hire people to spread its propaganda online, still has a shred of credibility.

Maybe because rap is so visible we treat it like it’s the end-all, be-all of the long history of the black arts movement

but think about what it says that people will open their mouths up with zero irony to say that songs on the radio have the power to destroy us as black people

slavery didn’t destroy black people but chief keef is our executioner?

the kind of fuckshit is that

In its report, the UN mission to Iraq says at least 5,576 civilians were killed and another 11,665 wounded from 1 January until the end of June. Another 1.2 million have been driven from their homes by the violence, it adds.

I am literally physically sick from seeing this. And I wish I knew why it was so difficult to find a master list of the names of the Iraqis.

I will never truly understand why coverage of Iraq is so sparse and why numbers of Iraqi human lives taken are always just numbers and not dignified by names…because they are actually humans.

I am aching for my people. And I am fucking angry at ISIS’s disgusting inhumanity. And  frustrated at the amount of apathy that the world has for Iraq.
