KKK Petition ‘Purge’ Hoax: Ku Klux Klan ‘Purge of African Americans’ Fake; 2 Million Signatures Change.org Petition Doesn’t Exist
Summary It goes on to say, “Producers of the movie ‘The Purge’ deeply apologize for what their movie has caused and claim you will not find their signature anywhere on the petition, but a quick scan of the petition revealed at least five of their relatives agree with purging on African Americans.” Another disclaimer elaborates: “All reports and other information on this page may or may not be 100% accurate. It’s not news, it’s entertainment. All other comments are my personal opinion, but try not to take the [expletive] seriously and come at me … because I will and do sue. I’m just a young [expletive] tryna get rich. I do not take credit for any media featured on this site.

U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.
The U.S. funds genocide, plain & simple.

Less than a week ago Eric Garner was laid to rest after dying from being placed in an illegal chokehold by Staten Island police, and now it looks as if the NYPD has once again, broken the rules.
Their reasoning? Allegedly grilling illegally outside.
Captured on a cell phone video, 27-year-old Rosan Miller is noticeably pregnant, but that doesn’t stop the NYPD from placing the woman in what looks like a chokehold.
Photos released Monday by an East New York advocacy group show Rosan Miller, 27, struggling with a cop who appears to have his arm around her neck.
The NYPD prohibits the use of chokeholds.
Officers went to the home over the weekend because Miller was grilling on a public sidewalk in violation of local law, cops said. But a melee broke out that ended with her, her brother and husband all in handcuffs.
The brother, John Miller, was charged with harassment and obstruction of justice. Her husband, Moses Miller, 34, was charged with resisting arrest and obstruction. Rosan Miller got a summons for disorderly conduct.
Barron pointed out that the woman’s daughter can be seen in the photo watching her mother being choked and arrested.
This is the third incident of the NYPD using an illegal choke hold to make the news this month. On July 14th, NYC officers beat and choked a 22 year old black male for entering the subway through an exit gate.
Three days later, an officer choked Eric Garner to death after he broken up a fight. The officers claimed he was selling untaxed cigarettes but it was later revealed he had none in his possession.
an other gaza
in chaos one man collects
his daughter into a plastic bag
oh my god the bag is leaking
one kisses a cave was baby boy face just this
morning braids unplaiting phosphorous
wordless exhaust smoke shock
what is it that remains of us now
then what is recyclable in us
men’s beards carry their lineage
refracted memory drones
drummed ears echo frequency
children call for siblings reborn
skulls fracture eyes the color purple
here the steeliest doctors weep
the sea waves shelled boys
sirens post explosions
all is shrapnel and hunger
none is safe all are waiting
between wall and wait and sea
and wall there is no day
what are we
flares rain metal escalation
descent upon heads ladders of spine collapse
night eats sleep the people hold fasts
children of lightening no rain
sewage into water skin flamed to ash
the women’s faces track lifelines
grief upon grief astronomical
dust was people last night
tunnel is the people now
raising horizon in coffins
there is no recovery
she says they light the night with bombs
she says that’s not the sun at all
she says this is a crime against my heart
she says nothing
she says listen
we are shelter and target
we are stars exploded
the people run into themselves for refuge
they catch up to their ghosts
between devastate and displace
what is destroyed again is everything
what is created is a hole
i’ve been in post-move out of Boston, ramadan is over, recovery. trying to re-regulate my sleep schedule so i’m not hard wired to wake up at 3:30 to eat anymore.
the saturday i flew back from Boston I literally took the bus to whole foods so i could have some food for the week, ate it, and blacked out in my bed.
the most i have been doing outside of trying to make time for my friends is trying to build the habit of doing yoga twice a day. i have plantar fasciitis in my right foot so I’ve been doing my own DIY yoga routines that are meant to loosen my calf muscles while strengthening and toning at the same time. I’ve also been trying to work out the kinks in the part of my lower back affected by scoliosis. especially since it gave me the most trouble while fasting and moving this ramadan. to the point where i was immobile some days and a friend had to take care of me. i want to see if stretching multiple times a day will give me some sort of relief and pain management before i go talk to my doctor about it.
so yeah, i haven’t been writing that much on here because my body is in a state of recovery while holding fast to the transitory spirit that brought me from Boston to Chicago and will take me from my parents house in suburbia to my own house in the city.
i cant count the number of times i have viscerally wanted to attack deform n maim the language that i waz taught to hate myself in/ the language that perpetuates the notions that cause pain to every black child as he/ she learns to speak of the world & the “self.” yes/ being an afro-american writer is something to be self-conscious abt/ & yes/ in order to think n communicate the thoughts n feelings i want to think n communicate/ i haveta fix my tool to my needs/ i have to take it apart to the bone/ so that the malignancies/ fall away/ leaving us space to literally create our own image.
