Written in the Bones. New comic, written by Christopher M. Jones & illustrated by Carey Pietsch.

I’m hoping to have printed copies of this at MOCCA, ABPCC, and TCAF this spring, and SPX in the fall! More info to come.

Me and Carey worked really hard on this comic; if you got something from it I’d love for you to reblog it, and maybe even buy a copy from Carey when she’s in town or even if she’s not. Thanks so much for reading. 

This reminded me of the runt of my dog Marley’s litter. Her name was Champy (champion, get it?) anyway, she was one of two girls born in a litter of 9 puppies.  She was born extremely tiny and frail, I had to bottle feed her because she was too weak to eat for herself. I would frequently catch my dog Marley taking her elsewhere to give her a chance to feed instead of having her bigger brothers and sister push her away.  Anyway,one afternoon before Champy passed away I caught Marley crying and whimpering under the bed with Champy. That night Champy gained enough strength and began to feed on her Marley’s milk for the very first time. I was so proud of our little baby girl Champy.  I cried so hard because Marley kept whimpering and crying, I knew why but I just sat there quietly watching. The next afternoon Champy had passed away peacefully in Marley’s arms.  We buried her in the backyard of our building next to my garden.  Marley frequently sniffs and sits there, when I take her home she lays in the same spot she gave birth to her pups and cries.  I know she misses Champy. If she ever hears a puppy whimpering on television she becomes inconsolable and will not calm down until we turn it off and hold her. She usually ends up playing with my boyfriends until she falls asleep in his arms.  It’s been two years since the death of Champy and she’s gotten better. Let me tell ya’ll something, animals feel emotion just like we do, they mourn their deceased just like we do.  I just thought I’d share my little two cents because it impacted my views on life. 

I want to get permission to use the script from this as lyrics for a song.  This is so heavy,  One of the best comics I’ve ever read.

All the feels 😢😥

Yesterday’s story of the elderly NYC man who was beaten bloody by police for jaywalking today gets a tragic companion from Philadelphia:

A 16-yr-old African American boy was sexually assaulted by a police officer during a “stop and frisk” pat-down. The assault was committed with such violence that the youth’s testicles were literally ruptured.
Now, Darrin Manning of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania may never be able to father children, according to the doctors who performed surgery on his virtually destroyed testicles.
Darrin was a star basketball player with no criminal history to speak of. He was a straight-A student who never got into any sort of trouble. He was with his teammates heading to a game right after school when he encountered an officer who decided he was “suspicious” and needed to be subjected to local “stop and frisk” procedures.

Though no official reason has been given for the stop and frisk, Darrin and the other (uniformed) members of the basketball team who were stopped suggest it was because they were wearing scarves over their faces to protect against the extreme cold Philadelphia, like much of the country, has suffered this winter.

Darrin was put in handcuffs. When the officer began “frisking” him, they grabbed hold of Darrin’s genitals so hard, pulled and twisted, that the teen’s genitals literally tore off.
“I felt the officer reach and grab my butt. Then the officer grabbed my testicles and squeezed again and pulled down. And that’s when I heard something pop, like I felt it POP,” Manning said.

The incident has left the 16-year-old with felony charges of assault and resisting arrest.
"I’m just grateful that they just didn’t kill him," said Darrin’s mother.

WHAT THE FUCK

Reading this further confirms what Francis Cress Welsing says about whites being afraid of genetic annihilation by way of the black mans genitalia on a subconscious level.

This officer probably has a tumblr account.

nigerianostalgia:

In the Yoruba culture, twins (Ibeji) are believed to bestow happiness,
health and prosperity upon their family. Their upbringing is therefore far more permissive than that of other children.

The first born twin, is always called Taiwo, meaning ‘having the first taste of the world’, whereas the second is named Kehinde, meaning ‘arriving after the other’. Although being born first Taiwo is considered as the younger twin. The senior Kehinde sends out Taiwo to see what the outside world looks like. As soon as Taiwo has given a signal by crying, Kehinde will follow.

Kehinde is believed to be more careful, more intelligent and more reflective, while Taiwo is believed to be more curious and adventurous.
