Saint or Sinking Ship?

Ferguson

The FAMBLY is now in the middle of an internecine food fight over whether or not they should hustle the name of GENTILIVS GIANTIVS.

You might be quick to think that this is indicative of how the handsupdontshoot cause is on its death throes, that various FAMBLY members are catching while catch can.

But remember, this is a smaller scale of the same kind of FAMBLY feud that Martin Luther King’s relatives and descendants are famous for.  And you can’t say that St. MLK is a dying cause, at least not officially.





This Is the Dawning of the Age of Shitavious

Ferguson

That’s what I thought of when I heard about all these promises from the Fergaza Strip-based undertow that there will be “hell to pay” and “blood on the streets” if Darren Wilson isn’t offered up to their Black Jeebus as an altar sacrifice.





Uber

Once every handful of years around here, we’ll see in the news that a black cabbie for an MTC-approved company (Laclede, County, Yellow and a few others) picked up a fare and then murdered him or her or them. The MTC, of course, is fighting tooth and nail to stop Uber and Lyft from planting themselves in St. Louis.

Jackson, Mississippi

What do you get when you cross Patel and Bell Curve City in the Deep South?

It could be worse:  Someone could start a rumor that one of the quickie mart employees called the cops on one of the many gentle giants of the area.





It’s Hot Today

Chapel Hill, North Carolina

It’s like going to Death Valley on any given day in July and commenting about how hot it is today.

No kidding.

This mentions Mary Willingham.  While she “officially” resigned, she was really driven outAnd you know why.

And also, some of these “ten-page papers” were nowhere near one page, much less ten.

I would say here that maybe one of these days, we’ll quit lying to ourselves and everyone else.  Except sometimes the truth isn’t handier because it’s uncomfortable if not totally off limits.





Step By Step

Clayton

The slow letdown and deflation of the other side continues:

Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.

I hope for the sake of these people that this GJ testimony is never leaked.  For as we all know about the ghetto, snitches get stitches and throw in ditches.  All it took for the Fergaza Strip apartment farm undertow to burn down the QT was a rumor that its employees called the cops on GENTILIVUS GIANTIVS.





Affirmative Negative

California

Question for the California state legislature and other state legislatures that have passed affirmative consent mandates for their states’ college campi:

If affirmative consent is so great, then why don’t you hard wire it into the general criminal law dealing with rape and sexual assault in the general population?
