“Emotional intelligence does not mean merely 'being nice'. At strategic moment it may demand not 'being nice', but rather, for example, bluntly confronting someone with an uncomfortable but consequential truth they've been avoiding.” ― Daniel Goleman, Working with Emotional Intelligence . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #poetry #writers #blackpoetry #gaypoetry #kanaloa #comingout  #literature #emotion #bigotry #relationships #love #breakingup #blackboyjoy #loveisabattlefield  #pride #nonconformity #freedom #freeverse #blackmagic #unicorn #dallas #books #newbooks #gay #romance #poem #poems #paperclip #octopus #seamonster 📷 @oohuongoo

🔊 #exactly — CNN host #DonLemon said Trump was not tweeting about the Waffle House shooting in #Tennessee earlier this week because the suspect is not Muslim. - "It would be nice if he tweeted about the four people who lost their lives in the Waffle House, the four black people who lost their lives, and the black hero from that, but not unless it's a #Muslim does he tweet about something like that," Lemon said on "CNN Tonight" on Monday. - Lemon's comments came hours after the suspected shooter Travis Reinking was taken into custody. - Reinking is accused of killing four people and injuring others at a Waffle House near #Nashville in the early hours of Sunday morning. - Authorities said Reinking drove into the Waffle House parking lot in Antioch, Tenn., at about 3:19 a.m. and sat in his car for up to four minutes before using a rifle to kill two people outside the restaurant. - Reinking allegedly killed two others and injured at least four more after entering the restaurant and opening fire. - #jamesshaw Jr. was able to wrestle the gun from Reinking in the midst of the shooting. - White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders praised Shaw's "heroic actions," and offered the president's condolences to the victims. - Reinking was previously arrested by the Secret Service last July in a restricted area near the White House. — #compassion #neveragain #dumptrump #vote #commonsense #atheist #takingaction #gunviolence #accountability #empathy #hypocrisy #nra #gunculture #cops #gunviolence #masshootings #schoolshootings #ignorance #racism #bigotry #hypocrisy #trump #civility #wafflehouse #cnn
🔊 #winning — Over the weekend, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was awarded Amnesty International‘s highest honour, the Ambassador of Conscience Award, for his protests against racial injustice. - The title “celebrates individuals and groups who speak out for justice” and stated Kaepernick “chooses to speak out and inspire others despite the professional and personal risks”. - Kaepernick first protested by sitting during the national anthem in August 2016, before opting to kneel instead. Soon more players followed suit which sparked criticism from President Donald Trump. - Amnesty International’s secretary general Salil Shetty described Kaepernick as “an athlete who is now widely recognised for his activism because of his refusal to ignore or accept racial discrimination. - Kaepernick’s commitment is all the more remarkable because of the alarming levels of vitriol it has attracted from those in power.” - During his acceptance speech, Kaepernick stated, “While taking a knee is a physical display that challenges the merits of who is excluded from the notion of freedom, liberty, and justice for all, the protest is also rooted in a convergence of my moralistic beliefs, and my love for the people.” - Kaepernick has been without a team since he opted out of his contract with San Francisco in March 2017. — #ticktock #dumptrump #impeachtrump #vote #commonsense #racism #bigotry #accountability #empathy #hypocrisy #blm #mueller #ignorance #useless #idiots #trump #minions #fucktrump #clueless #donaldtrump #resign #sinkingship #nfl #kapernick #colinkaepernick #football
#everyday #racism #ignorance — A Riverview High school student in #Florida is under investigation after posting a #racist #prom proposal , according to the Herald Tribune. - The photo was created by 18-year-old Noah Crowley, who posted the photo to Snapchat. - The sign read: “If I was black, I’d be picking cotton, but I’m white, so I’m picking u 4 prom.” - The photo quickly made it’s way to Twitter where several users bashed Crowley for being racially insensitive. - Riverview acting principal Kathy Wilks said: ″ [The post] was racial in nature and administration became aware of it last night. - Many who saw the post are understandably upset with its contents as well as the subsequent commentary to the post. Riverview High #School absolutely does not condone or support the message conveyed in this post.” - #Students at the #HighSchool are taking the issue seriously. Anton Kernohan, a student activist, said the sign brings attention to the long lasting problem of racism in his generation. - “But I think it is actually important that this issue occurred at some level,” Kernohan said. “It shows that racism is still alive and well in our #society , and it shows that racism is still alive in my generation and it is something that we as the youth will have to continue to fight against.” - President of the Sarasota chapter of the #NAACP , Trevor Harvey, said he is hoping for a district-wide response. - “When we see so many heightened race relations throughout our country, our district has to take a proactive standpoint to make sure that that stuff doesn’t spill off into our schools.” - On Monday the school district released a statement saying that they condemn the sign: “Although this message is one student’s opinion, we take the matter of racial relations and school safety seriously, and we look forward to working with our students and these outside groups have a meaningful and informative dialogue and expanded curriculum related to this important national topic.” — #wereallthesame #equality #empowerment #education #bias #hypocrisy #racism #bigotry #diversity #slavery #blm #dumptrump #fucktrump #accountability #educate #trump #racism #arrogance #donaldtrump #immigration

Look up the hashtag #LivingWhileBlack and you might get a slight understanding of the racism, ignorance, bigotry and hatred that black people face on the daily. I’m lucky enough to only have a a handful of experiences where I was treated differently for being black, I can’t imagine what it must be like for darker skinned people and black people in less progressive areas than I’m in.
This makes a very good point. I’ve never thought about this until I saw it. • Image Description: Tumblr Text post that reads “use the right pronouns even when they can’t hear you” Someone adds, “Can I point out one exception? Don’t use pronouns when it could out the person. If a trans woman isn’t out to her parents and uses she/her pronouns, don’t use she/her in front of her parents. If you aren’t sure, ask the person. Don’t put trans people in danger.” To continue, someone says, “I think this is the only time I’ve ever seen someone giving an example of a time when you should not use correct pronouns for someone and agreed with it.” • #🏳️‍🌈 #LGBT #LGBTQ #LGBTpride #LGBTQpride #pride #trans #transgender #transpride #transgenderpride #transphobic #transphobia #bigotry #bigoted #bigot #oppressed #oppression • ~ 🌊 J. 🌊

I have to begin this by saying, I did not watch the video in question. I couldn't bring myself to do it as someone who will be attending Penn State this fall. This is a school known for it's networking with ceo' s, entrepreneurs, and politicians. Is it really possible that amongst that list of occupations, Penn State is creating and harboring those insensitive to the racial tensions that layer America? I hope doing a poll on this issue will shed some light on what the people think about this issue and what their reasoning is behind it. #racism #pennstate #whitepeople #racialslurs #bigotry #hiddenracism #discrimination #prejudice #Amerikkka #blackpanther #MargietheMillenial

#sameshitdifferentday — Starbucks is still catching heat for the incident in which a manager called the police on two black men waiting in a Philly store. Now a golf club in the same state is being accused of a similar fail. - According to the York Daily Record, five #black women accused the owners and staff of Grandview #Golf Club in York, #Pennsylvania , of discrimination. - The women claim they were told by staff they were taking too long on the course, and were asked to leave. A refund of the women's membership fees was allegedly offered, and the #police were called. - Pace of play — how quickly golfers proceed through a #golfcourse — According to Grandview's scorecard, an 18-hole round should be completed within four hours and fifteen minutes. - Regional #Police Chief Mark Bentzel confirmed early this week no charges were filed against any of the women. - "No result on our end, no action," said Bentzel. "We were called there for an issue. The issue did not warrant any charges. All parties left and we left as well." - The club's ownership has released an official statement, noting that the alleged incident “does not reflect our organization’s values or our commitment to delivering a welcoming environment for everyone. We are disappointed that this situation occurred and regret that our members were made to feel uncomfortable in any way.” - JJ Chronister, one of the co-owners of the golf club (along with Jordan Chronister), said she been in contact with all of the five women involved, and wants to meet with them to "understand their perception of what happened" so that something like this does not happen again. - Chronister also wants to implement sensitivity and #diversity training. “There needs to be something more substantial to understand they don’t treat people in this manner,” she said of her employees. - "We sincerely apologize to the women for making them feel uncomfortable here at Grandview, that is not our intention in any way," Chronister stated.” — #equality #everyday #empowerment #ignorance #education #bias #racism #bigotry #blm #dumptrump #fucktrump #accountability #cops #apologize #golfer thanks! @politics_with_g

#tragic — CHARLOTTE, N.C. (2016) The North Carolina Highway Patrol state trooper who shot and killed a deaf man in Charlotte last August will not face charges for the incident, the Mecklenburg County District Attorney said Monday. - In August, Trooper Jermaine Saunders chased Daniel Harris nearly 10 miles to the front door of his home in Charlotte's University City neighborhood after trying to stop him for speeding on Interstate 485. When Harris got out of his car, #NorthCarolina State Highway Patrol officials said he and Saunders had an altercation. - According to Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray, #Trooper Jermaine Saunders’ use of deadly force was not unlawful during the encounter due to Saunders’ belief that Daniel Harris posed an imminent threat. - Murray elaborated in documents filed Monday that the critical inquiry in the case is whether it reasonably appeared to Saunders that deadly force was necessary. - Saunders told SBI detectives that Harris exited his vehicle and sprinted directly toward him with a metal object in his right hand. When Harris got within 2-4 feet of Saunders, the trooper fired one shot, striking Harris in the chest. - Brother: Deaf man killed by #cop over misunderstanding “Trooper Saunders, who had taken a ‘felony stop’ position consisting of exiting his patrol vehicle and drawing his service gun, had only seconds to decide why Harris was running at him, what the metal object was in Harris’ hand and how to protect himself and prevent his gun from being compromised,” Murray said in a statement. - Following the incident, Harris' neighbors told WCNC-TV that Harris was likely trying to communicate with the trooper using #signlanguage . They contended that Saunders should have been trained to recognize that, and the officer needed to know how to de-escalate the situation. - "You're pulling someone over who is #deaf . They are #handicapped ," neighbor Mark Barringer, who witnessed the encounter, said in August. "To me, what happened is totally unacceptable." — #wereallthesame #equality #empowerment #ignorance #bias #hypocrisy #racism #bigotry #blm #empathy #dumptrump #accountability #police #disabled #cops @burning_wasteland

Regrann from @missfiliciaj - Do you ever consider this... consider how the media changes our perspective. How it colours the world around us...it is difficult to truly disconcern what is true what is false what is real and what is fantasy. But we need to try our best because most days we are being duped most days we are not seeing the truth it behooves us to seek information that can get us as close to the truth as we possibly can yes it takes more time then watching a five minute news story but I believe that the truth is worth it. #heartspeak #malcomx #malcomxquotes #missfiliciaj #livepositively #riseregardless #namaste - #regrann #repost #media #power 👻 #whitesupremacy #whiteprivilege #racism #racialinequality #inequity #slavery #bigotry #whitewashed #american #history #education #institutionalracism #systemicracism #amerikkka

I call for the immediate firing of both police officers & the ones who stood by & watched. This bad behavior & Blue wall of silence needs to stop & stop now! Change won't come until we demand the police are held accountable for their actions & put on blast for it! #PressPlay #WTFPostOfTheDay • In an episode very reminiscent of the recent Starbucks arrests, 25-year-old #ChikesiaClemons is seen here being threatened and pushed to the ground by #police officers in an #Alabama #WaffleHouse . After a minor alleged dispute with the cashier over being charged for plastic utensils, Clemons is seen seated by a window while an officer holds her arm. “ You’re not gonna grab on me like that, no,” she says, and in seconds, three officers are pinning her to the floor while her dress is pulled down, exposing her bare chest. “What are you doing?” she and her friend are heard saying, to which an officer replies, “I’m gonna break your arm.” Clemons’s mother tells AL.com that her daughter was arrested around 2:45 AM on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. She reportedly paid a $1,000 bond. AL reports that Clemons had simply asked to file a complaint with the manager after she was charged 50 cents for plastic utensils which she claimed she had not been charged for at the same location the previous night. The staff apparently called the police, who, without asking her to leave, put their hands on her: “They didn’t even ask her to leave, she was waiting for them to give her the district manager’s card so she could file a complaint on one of the waitresses,” Clemons-Howard said. “When they went to go get the card, that’s when the police showed up. The officer should’ve come in and said we need you to leave.” • #Saraland #Alabama #AwfulWaffle 🚫💰🚫🥞🥓 • #Racist #Racism #PoliceBrutality #WhiteSupremacy #WhiteSupremacist #WhiteSupremacists #WhiteSupremacistsStayOnCode #WhitePrivilege #Bigot #Bigotry #AmeriKKKA #AintShitChanged

All ages embracing the #nationsinourneighborhood . Defy #prejudice #racism #bigotry
#Repost @djtothestars • • • #PressPlay #WTFPostOfTheDay • In an episode very reminiscent of the recent Starbucks arrests, 25-year-old #ChikesiaClemons is seen here being threatened and pushed to the ground by #police officers in an #Alabama #WaffleHouse . After a minor alleged dispute with the cashier over being charged for plastic utensils, Clemons is seen seated by a window while an officer holds her arm. “ You’re not gonna grab on me like that, no,” she says, and in seconds, three officers are pinning her to the floor while her dress is pulled down, exposing her bare chest. “What are you doing?” she and her friend are heard saying, to which an officer replies, “I’m gonna break your arm.” Clemons’s mother tells AL.com that her daughter was arrested around 2:45 AM on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. She reportedly paid a $1,000 bond. AL reports that Clemons had simply asked to file a complaint with the manager after she was charged 50 cents for plastic utensils which she claimed she had not been charged for at the same location the previous night. The staff apparently called the police, who, without asking her to leave, put their hands on her: “They didn’t even ask her to leave, she was waiting for them to give her the district manager’s card so she could file a complaint on one of the waitresses,” Clemons-Howard said. “When they went to go get the card, that’s when the police showed up. The officer should’ve come in and said we need you to leave.” • #Saraland #Alabama #AwfulWaffle 🚫💰🚫🥞🥓 • #Racist #Racism #PoliceBrutality #WhiteSupremacy #WhiteSupremacist #WhiteSupremacists #WhiteSupremacistsStayOnCode #WhitePrivilege #Bigot #Bigotry #AmeriKKKA #AintShitChanged
#WTFPostOfTheDay from @ShaunKing • Many local residents are telling me that they believe the #WaffleHouse #gunman targeted #victims of color on purpose and that it was a hate crime. • The victims — #AkilahDasilva , #DeEbonyGroves , #JoePerez & #TaureanSanderlin — have not even been mentioned by Trump - much as he did when a white man bombed residents of color in Austin. • #SayTheirNames 🚫💰🚫🥞🥓 • #TravisReinking #Racist #Racism #WhiteTerrorist #WhiteTerrorism #WhiteSupremacy #WhiteSupremacist #WhiteSupremacists #WhiteSupremacistsStayOnCode #WhitePrivilege #Bigot #Bigotry #AmeriKKKA #AintShitChanged #Crime #MassShooter #Hero #JamesShaw #Antioch #Tennessee

#Calcutta or #Kolkata . Not the West-denigrated #cityofjoy . It’s my beloved #city where people still write #poetry , make #music and #movies , and reject #hate and #bigotry .
**Violent bigotry as in committing hate crimes, being a part of domestic terrorist groups (the KKK), or openly disclosing their wish of violence on particular group In my personal opinion the key word here is violent. If the individual has been known to make sadistic or physically harmful comments against a particular group then we shouldn't give them the weapons to commit their crimes. However, if someone is just a part of a hate group, I don't believe this should hinder them from protecting themselves. #Gunviolence #domesticterrorism #righttobeararms #TravisReinking #KKK #2A #Bigotry #blacklivesmatter #lgbt #isis #MargietheMillenial
Living in diverse Los Angeles, you would think bigotry is the last thing I’d have to worry about in my daily life, but it’s not. That’s because I’m a Scientologist, and for most of my life, the press has been engaged in smearing my religion. www.standleague.org/blog/youre-not-as-tolerant-and-inclusive-as-you-think-and-heres-why.html #losangeles #bigotry #inclusion #religion #humanrights #intolerance #discrimination #german #press
🔊🤔 #nope — After taking to Twitter to announce his upcoming joint album with Kid Cudi, #KanyeWest let off a barrage of tweets professing his support for black conservative Candace Owens. - “I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” #yeezy tweeted on Saturday (Apr. 21) “Be fearless. Express what you feel not what you’ve been programmed to think.” He then encouraged his followers to “get passed the past,” writing, “The more people contribute to real-time global consciousness the faster we evolve.” - Owens, who is dubbed by many as the black version of Tomi Lahren, responded to Ye’s tweets by asking for a meeting and revealing that “everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music.” She also asked for his help to “ #wakeup the #black community.” - In the past, Owens made headlines for calling Colin #Kaepernick , Al Sharpton, and frequent #Kanye collaborator Jay-Z frauds for speaking out against mass incarceration. She also claims “white guilt” should stop, referring to #blacklivesmatter protestors as “whiny toddlers, - “#BLM protesters showed up to my @ UCLA event to protest,” she wrote on Twitter. “Here is a video clip of me smacking them down with the truth; they’re a bunch of whiny toddlers, pretending to be oppressed for attention.” - This isn’t the first time Kanye has voiced his support for conservatives. In 2016, he told the audience at his Saint Pablo tour that he would have voted for #DonaldTrump - “I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?” he said. “But if I would’ve #vote d, I would’ve voted for #Trump .” He also added, “We live in a #racist country. That is a fact. This world is racist, OK? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much.” — #wereallthesame #equality #empowerment #ignorance #educate #elites #hypocrisy #racism #bigotry #dumptrump #fucktrump #hiphop #accountability #impeachtrump #arrogance #mrwest #ohnobabywhatisyoudoing
READ THIS CAPTION CAREFULLY: this is real, it happens, they know what they’re doing when they do it. Stay safe fellas. 👀💅🏽#whodoyoulove #wholovesyou *************************************** Regrann from @rustillsleeping - Basically, Stay in your place #Nigger . . It was 2 a.m.; only the streetlights were on, but the guy was clearly done with his girlfriend (probably ex-girlfriend at this point) and was just trying to get inside the building. “You fucking asshole!” she screamed and ran after him, jumping onto his back for the angriest piggyback ride in history. Then when he kept walking to the apartment, cursing at her to leave him alone: “I’m gonna call the #cops ! I’ll tell them you hit me!” the woman screamed. “I’ll tell them you beat me up. They’ll get your ass.” The man stopped dead in his tracks, turned around and gave her a look of shock, anger and then unmitigated fear. He was black. She was white. He knew exactly what she was saying and so did I, and most horrendously, ↪so did she. When white people threaten to call the police on black people—out of anger, out of spite, out of pure #vindictiveness —they are effectively saying, “I’ll kill you!” They’re just using a legal extension of #whitesupremacy to do it. It’s high time we start considering these #bigots just as much a threat as the police they summon to do their bidding. #BlackAmerica added “sitting at #Starbucks waiting for a white friend” to the list of things that we cannot safely do without fear of #policeviolence . Previous entries included sitting in your car, sitting in someone else’s car, standing on your front porch, standing on your back porch, surviving a car accident, asking for directions to school and, of course, breathing. My anger is directed at the men and women making these outrageous and unwarranted calls to police, which result in the harassment, unfair prosecution and even death of #peopleofcolor . They need to be found, publicly shamed and #prosecuted to the full extent that the law allows. I’m talking about the hundreds of cases—that we know about—every year, where white #Americans actively and knowingly use the #police as an extension of their personal #bigotry
🔊 #amazing — It isn't always simple when America discovers you at 11 years old. Suddenly, it's not just homework that you're responsible for. Your name becomes a hashtag, and if you're lucky you might even get invited on Ellen. That happened to me at 11, and now it’s Naomi Wadler’s turn. - While some people become famous because of their parents or because of a scandal, Naomi came to the attention of the world because she chose to speak for the invisible. At the March for Our Lives last month, she stood and demanded that people see and appreciate the lives of black girls, especially those who experience gun violence and often go unnoticed. - She spoke not just to the crowd, but to people nationwide, and she insisted that black girls be included in the conversations we have when it comes to who needs protection and who is at risk of harm. At a walk out at her school a few weeks earlier, she'd taken an extra minute to commemorate Courtlin Arrington, a 17-year-old black girl who was shot and killed on March 7. Her murder did not receive much news attention. - For me, Naomi is a kindred soul. Though our lives are different, we share a commitment to a better and more equitable future. Most of all, we agree that ignorance feeds violence, and so we are determined to spread awareness instead. - After we each took a break from school and our responsibilities and went on vacation late last month, I called Naomi to find out how she became the activist she is now and what she hopes to do next. - While the world may have discovered Naomi on the March for Our Lives podium, it’s clear from our conversation that protest and demonstration aren't new to her. Which is good, because we need the most experienced 11-year-olds to lead the fight. — #winning #girlpower #wow #dumptrump #impeachtrump #neveragain #vote #commonsense #racism #bigotry #takingaction #kids #blm #accountability #empathy #hypocrisy #nra #gunculture #gunviolence #cops #masshootings #schoolshooting #ignorance #trump #clueless #civility #donaldtrump #florida #resign
