#myNYPD

the OOP heard around the world

The part that made me chuckle was the NY chapter of the ACLU. Like, “These pictures are nifty and all nice and neatly put together in this handy tag. Can y’all tag us so we’re in the loop? This is great for a class case- I mean class collection of pictures to show at a later date. Possibly in court.”

The only good thing i know of that #myNYPD has done is the #myNYPD

by pairing skate lessons and boards with education initiatives, skateistan — a non profit organization that works with the support of local afghan communities — is using skateboarding as a tool of empowerment for more than four hundred afghan kids, many of whom live on the streets.  

more than 40 percent of skateistan’s students are female. though girls are banned from riding bikes in afghanistan, skateboarding is novel and remains permissible, and has now become the most popular sport for females in the country.

Yes sure love. And thank you for asking. As long as you give the authors and artists proper credit, feel free to do so.

It’s funny, the stereotypes we given. Lazy, as if we ain’t build an entire country on our backs. Thieves, as if we wasn’t stolen from our home. Hateful, as if we was the ones that murder for dark skin. Selfish, as if we took over another people’s country and claimed they land as our own. Funny, how them stereotypes so perfectly describe the ones who done doomed us all. — My grandmother, talking to my brother who was recently called, “nothing but a black thug” for daring to wear a hoodie in the rain.

in-finitesilence asked: I just came across your tumblr and I absolutely love your posts/ some of your poems/writings that i just went through. I believe, you're a strong independent woman and i like that a lot. I hope i can express myself without any hesitation like you do someday, i'm still learning. you inspire me in ways. Thank you for being you. x

Aww thank you for letting me know. I am always in need of  affirmations and loving from the community. I am a woman constantly trying to stay strong, but independent..i am not sure. I don’t necessarily believe in that. I am very much depended on my communities, and believe in dependency being a positive thing. But that is a different conversation .

:) Thank you for being you too.
