I say this about once a month lol. To be fair, I also use several of Uncle Ruckus' quotes to describe some of the incorrigible folks I deal with on a daily basis.
Lmao!

Uncle Ruckus is a son of a biscuit, but got dammit he can be on point about some sh*t.
"Well, I'm black now. So the first thing I did was quit all my jobs. I dunno how I'm supposed to pay the bills... Probably have to start selling crack. Or rapping. Or rapping about selling crack."--Uncle Ruckus

and whhhhhy was he wearing a long white tee the whole episode? That is one of my all time fave eps.

how about I almost bought drake tour tickets.....


Step away from the multi-tab feature... Drake?...Drake??? Turtles...
I just randomly saw his tour dates and I said "I wonder if the place near me is sold out" it wasn't and then I said "well you only live once, or in the case of wheel chair jimmy, you only walk once". Then I exited out, because they wouldn't of been good seats anyway.

He's on tour with waka....like really..

Yep, agree. And I didn't remember the district being all black? Correct me if I'm wrong please, but I feel like I pictured that old man being shot as white? I'm fine with 12 being white...but in my head I thought 11 was more multicultural. I can't even fake though...that riot scene was badass...but it didn't make sense because if they rioted just because rue died then there would have been another uprising long ago, and the games were supposed to keep people in check no?

I actually pictured Rue's whole district as black. Something about them being sort of field workers, made me think the author was likening them to southern black plantation workers. Especially with them being dark brown and all -_-

I think Katniss being a rebel and even sending them signal could have been justification for them rioting at that time. I just can't remember if that was out of sequence or not... I feel like they were calm until the old man got shot.


eta: this is some random link that describes what I thought lol. http://thehungergames.wikia.com/wiki/District_11
Welp, fair enough. I really was picturing some white folks with them picking apples, but I have a few friends who do that. I shall accept the alternative analysis.

I just finished the hunger games and I think I'm crying. Tears. I feel like Katniss, with a mix of emotions that seem too painful to put together! I love reading! Even when it hurts....

In the movie it shows district 11 with mostly black people with some scattered "others" hanging around. In my head I pictured it very multicultural to offset the obvious paleness going on in district 12.

I've heard that before on other matters and I'm not really surprised by some AA's stance on this issue.

It's pretty interesting now about the details coming out that have some people singing a different tune. Apparently, Zimmerman says that Trayvon turned, punched him in the face, then jumped on top of him, knocking him to the ground, and started beating his head against the pavement. Witnesses back up his story including a black teenage boy that came forward the night of the incident and stated that is what occurred. That he actually saw Trayvon on top of Zimmerman beating him.

The media has delved into Trayvon's personal life and found out that he was actually visiting with his father because he got suspended from school for marijuana residue in his school bag. They also snooped on his Facebook page and found out that he attacked a bus driver. They are also pointing out that Trayvon isn't this cute little kid in the photos that the parents gave out to the media. He's a 6'3 approx 150lb big guy (basically a man in the eyes of the law) and Zimmerman is 5'9 and very overweight. They also have been showing a new picture of Trayvon with gold teeth in his mouth, a menancing sort of look on this face, and what appears to be what is referred to as a "wife-beater" t-shirt on. He looks older in the picture..than he does in the pics that have been circulating his family provided. Also the current spokesperson for Zimmerman's family is a black man that has stated Zimmerman is devastated about what happened and cried and cried for days about it. This man said he's a family friend that knows the Zimmermans well and when he heard..it just didn't seem possible because George Zimmerman is known as basically a great guy that would help you in any way he could. And that's he's not a racist..

People are now saying this is just like the Duke case. Where a black stripper/escort claimed that 3 white male Duke lacrosse players raped her..the media and many in the public got into a frenzy concerning racism only to learn that once all the evidence came out this woman couldn't possibly have been telling the truth. Thus the charges against the Duke lacrosse players were dropped. This woman has since been in trouble legally for attempted murder, assault, arson, identity theft, child abuse, and other things. She is currently incarcerated and about to go to trial for murder.

I personally don't even know what to think anymore..they have that law in place in Florida. And I just don't see if the evidence is what the police, Zimmerman, and the lawyers claim how Zimmerman could be charged with anything. He was lawfully carrying a firearm and he "stood his ground" under the law once he was attacked. I also read that it was stated that it was Trayvon who went for the gun initially..not Zimmerman. So IDK.

What I do know is that even if this did go down exactly like Zimmerman says it does speak volumes concerning how this case was handled by authorities though. And I do think that in of itself has something to do with racism.

IDK. Even if the media is now trying to say that Martin was something of a thug, it still doesn't mean that justice is being served here because as far as anyone knows, Martin was unarmed. And it still doesn't mean he deserved to die. The police didn't even bother to do a basic investigation, which speaks volumes. If they had done their damn job, they could have found some of that stuff out for themselves. Why is the media doing all the investigating for them?
