I become attached to people I shouldn’t. I distance myself from the people who matter. I am bad with people. I am good at being alone. But I hate being lonely.
Transitioning in my hometown, I am fortunate to not have to stare down the face of rejection from my estranged father with the open arms and love of a predominantly ‘straight’ and cisgender male and female support base. They not only welcome and encourage me to live as myself, but to thrive as what they see: a sensitive woman with a big heart.
I am Amanda: brazen, confident, independent, passionate & driven.
I AM #RedefiningRealness!
Spread this like a damn wildfire.
17 Year old Christopher Roupe was gunned down by a police officer while answering his front door while holding a Nintendo Wii remote.
"At around 7:30 PM, young Christopher took out his Nintendo Wii controller to put on a movie.
As he was sitting down, he suddenly heard knocking on the front door.
He asked, “Who is it?” but received no response.
At that point he got up from his chair and opened the door.
To his shock, the female cop already had her gun drawn and pointed at him, according to reports.
She immediately fired a bullet into the boy’s chest and killed him, according to Renee Vance, the boy’s aunt.
The police claim that “he had a handgun.”
It was actually the boy’s small Nintendo Wii controller, says the aunt.
The officer gave him “no warning” to drop the controller before taking his life, the aunt added.
The police claimed to be at his house regarding a “probation” matter. It turns out that it had nothing to do with Christopher.
His 13-yr-old little sister heard the gun shot and ran over to the door to find her brother bleeding and crying.
The little sister held her brother and tried to comfort him as he cried in pain, according to reports.
That’s when the female cop pointed her gun at the child and said “Shut up!” according to reports, forcing the girl away.
Moments later Christopher bled to death.
Both the female officer and the officer who was with her have received “paid administrative leave” as the investigation proceeds.”

Police are already trying cover up this incident with bullshit lies.
Don’t let this just get swept under the rug.
A Wii remote in no way resembles a handgun.
This is absolutely ridiculous and disgusting
OH MY GOD
Kesha Rogers, a LaRouche supporter who equates Obama to Hitler and calls for his impeachment, is leading the Dem Senate primary in TX.
Texas Dems Beware!
Don’t vote for Kesha Rogers! She isn’t a democrat she is a member of the LaRouche movement.
Go vote in the primary so she’s not our chance against Cornyn.
I’m reblogging myself here because its super important to raise awareness about her. Please, if the Dems have have any chance of ousting Cornyn she is not the answer.
Jayden and Amaya were just 12 and 11-Years-Old when they became the youngest certified food truck owners in Memphis, Tennessee by creating their own business called “Kool Kidz Sno Konez.” Their mom suggested that they try to make their ownmoney and they both began to brainstorm ideas and eventually came up with producing their own snow cones.
They started out with just a table and an extension cord out front their home, Jaden and Amaya got some of their friends to wave signs on corners to attract customers. Success came fast and over 2 summers they earned enough money that their Mom felt they could afford a food truck.
An ordinance in Memphis allows them to own and work out of the food truck. The food Truck met the Health Department standards and Jaden and Amaya are officially licensed business operators. They look forward to weather heating up as Spring approaches. Their goal is to have a franchise of Trucks and Shops so that when they get older they can work smart instead of having to work hard.

We would like to wish our revolutionary ancestor Huey P. Newton a Happy Birthday, who was born on February 17., 1942. He was a powerful warrior in the struggle against racism, capitalism, and imperialism during the 1960s and 1970s.
Without his leadership in creating and developing the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, many of us would not have the opportunities we have today, such as the Women Infant and Children (WIC) program, free school breakfast, Black Studies, and many more contributions for oppressed people to rise up and finally control our society for the advancement of our people and the world.
Watch this video of a huge rally of more than 5,000 people on his birthday, February 17, 1968, organized by Bobby Seale and the Black Panther Party for Self Defense to support the movement to Free Huey from prison.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUEY P. NEWTON!
ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
