There’s been a lot of talk said recently because I was supposed to have said something about Negroes should buy rifles. White people have been buying rifles all their lives. No commotion.

I have an editorial here. It says that we’re supposed to be organizing some kind of Negroes to arm themselves with rifles and shotguns for self-defense. America is based upon the right of people to organize in self-defense. This is in the Constitution of the United States; you read it for yourself. The Second Amendment to the Constitution spells out the right of people under this particular governmental system to have arms to defend themselves.

It hurts so bad when you have to let go of white friends. Years later you wonder if you really had to let them go. Were you being uncompromising? Could you have been more patient? The answer, of course, is no. You had to let them go for your sanity, for your dignity, and because you deserve friends who will listen with an open heart to your very real pain and anguish. If they can’t do that, they were not your friends. 

Being white was not the definitive factor in determining whether they could be open minded.

Sgt. Thomas McVicar of the Jersey City Police Department shot 22 year old Kwadir Felton, leaving him blind, after Kwadir pulled a gun on him, he claims. Kwadir Felton denied the accusation, stating that he doesn’t even carry guns.

"I don’t understand!" Felton yelled at a police officer before his mother was removed from the courtroom. "You didn’t have to shoot me in the head for no reason! You trying to charge me with something I didn’t do!"

Sign the Change.org petition and get this story out there.

sign the petition! signal boost Justice for Kwedir Felton!

THIS IS THE SHIT WE’RE STILL DEALING WITH. I am sick to my stomach.

http://www.nj.com/jjournal-news/index.ssf/2013/11/kwadir_feltons_attorney_files.html

Sounds like the officer keeps changing his story about what he did with the gun after he shot a fucking human being in the god damn face. Sounds guilty as all fuck.

From what I could find on the .gov site, it looks like the drug charges could stick, it doesn’t mention if Felton was a known associate of those who were selling the drugs.

All the details on the gov site seem super broad strokes, it all smells off to me. http://www.nj.gov/oag/newsreleases11/pr20110519c.html

I know that putting this on a cosplay page is a weird thing. But, really, I hardly feel safe anywhere else. My personal blog is watched by my family, and I certainly wasn’t going to put in on my roleplay blogs.
Anyways, my mom and I got into a huge fight today. One that left me crying on the way to work, and blaring ‘God Help the Outcasts’ multiple times on my iPod (I cope with music…sorry not sorry.) Let me start off by saying this: My mother is the most amazing woman you could ever know. She’s very loving and caring. She supports me in cosplay one hundred percent and is just….she’s wonderful. Let me also give you some brief background on her. Her brother passed away from AIDS when I was just a baby. She tried seven years to have me and was told she could never have children - I am an IVF baby, one of the first thousand in America, and truly a miracle child. And she was raised incredibly, incredibly Catholic. 
Because of this, we butt heads a lot on something that is very important to me. THIS. Let me give you some background on ME now. Ever since sixth grade, I’d realized I was crushing on both boys AND girls. In seventh grade, I had my first girlfriend, but I kept it secret because I knew my mom wouldn’t approve. NOT BECAUSE SHE DOESNT LIKE HOMOSEXUALITY. No, my family is VERY gay rights. But anyways. Around the same time, I questioned myself as a person. I was never very open with it, but I knew something was up. I didn’t like pretty dresses or wearing make-up or shopping or doing my hair like ‘normal girls.’ In fact, I felt like things that ‘normal girls’ did were pretty dumb and boring. And I found myself often wishing that I had a penis. For a lot of reasons. I dreamed about it. I thought about it. And I started considering a sex change.
Then I realized that, yes, sometimes I like to wear a dress every now and then or doll myself up. Sometimes I like to be the Disney Princess. For a good chunk of my life, I’d considered myself transgender, but I didn’t tell anyone, because I thought….no, this must be a phase. I must be confused. Especially since there was the whole ‘If I was really a boy, would I honestly be okay with wearing skirts?’ thing. About a year ago, the term genderfluid was brought to my attention. And it hit me like a bullet - that’s me. That’s what I am.
I’ve never liked labels. I don’t consider myself all black or all white, just one big shade of grey. Sometimes I like to dress more manly. Sometimes I like to put on lots of make-up. I consider myself more male than female, but that is hardly the point. I’m on a spectrum. I see myself as whoever I am most comfortable seeing myself as. My mom, however, is not fond of this. My mom says things like, “Do you think you look like a boy? Because you don’t.” And things like, “I raised you, don’t you think I’d know if you were really the wrong gender?”
These things hurt. These things break me. I cut my hair to look more androgynous so I can swing ‘either way’ so to speak, and I love it. I love me. I’m more confident in me than I ever have been. But my mom is my best friend. My best friend, who comes from a religious background that frowns upon this stuff. From a generation that had never heard of anyone being ‘genderfluid’ or ‘genderqueer.’ I don’t blame her for her thoughts because I UNDERSTAND THEM. Nowadays it seems like being ‘gender fluid is the new trend.’ She thinks cosplaying triggered this. I’ve been thinking this way since before I cosplayed. And really, I just want her to accept me and love me fully for who I am. Isn’t that what any child wants?
So if you think that we should be loved for WHO WE ARE AS PEOPLE not the BODIES WE WERE GIVEN, reblog this. I want all transgender, genderqueer, genderfluid, bigender, well hell I want EVERYONE OUT THERE to know that they are perfect and loved and there is nothing wrong with being YOU. And then maybe my mom can see that there’s a lot more support for these sort of things than hate.


I don&#8217;t support people who try to rationalize homosexuality through biology. Men are the XY embryo women are the XX embryo there is no homosexual embryo, the gender doesn&#8217;t change or evolve. I do support certain freedoms, so I believe these men and women should not be ridiculed for how they express themselves, BUT don&#8217;t try to &#8220;prove&#8221; homosexuality is nothing more than just a decision. Being gay is a mentality issue not an inheritance trait.
