Samantha Medina: Queen of the Cockroaches

She never forgets a slight, real or imagined. She takes caution for cowardice and dissent for defiance. And she is greedy. Greedy for power, for honour, for love.

Stop saying this is a “police brutality” thing or “stop making this about race”

IT’S ABOUT RACE

IT’S ABOUT RACE

THIS COUNTRY HAS BEEN BUILT ON RACE, EVERYTHING IN OUR SOCIETY HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT RACE

THE FUCK?

YOU THOUGHT THIS SHIT WAS OVER WHEN THE FEDS KILLED MLK?

Preach!

Michael Brown Shooting: KKK Raising Reward Money for 'Hero' Officer

The Ku Klux Klan said it is raising funds to reward the police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager in Missouri.

Michael Brown, 18, was shot by a St Louis County officer in the town of Ferguson on 9 August. The officer, who has not been named over retaliation fears, clams he fired after Brown assaulted him.

Eyewitnesses claim the teenager was shot after placing his hands in the air but refusing the lie on the pavement.

The incident sparked days of unrest in the area, with heavily armed police firing tear gas and rubber bullets at demonstrators, many of whom were staging “hands up” protests against the killing.

St Louis County and the Justice Department are investigating the incident, which US PresidentBarack Obama described as “heartbreaking”.

The South Carolina-based New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) said its Missouri chapterplans to raise money for a reward for the “hero” officer who fired at Brown, according to Southern Poverty Law Center.

"We are setting up a reward/fund for the police officer who shot this thug," a spokesperson for the group said via email.

"He is a hero! We need more white cops who are anti-Zog and willing to put Jewish controlled black thugs in their place. Most cops are cowards and do nothing while 90% of interracial crime is black (and non-white) on white."

The KKK previously caused controversy in the predominantly black area of Missouri by leaving fliers informing residents it had set up a Neighbourhood Watch in the area.

"You can sleep at night knowing the Klan is awake," said the flier distributed around the town of Springfield.

Both stunts have been seen as attempts to raise the profile of the Klan, whose supporters are said to have dwindled to just a few thousand in recent years.

The unnamed officer who shot Brown has been placed on administrative leave while investigations continue. Obama called for calm in Ferguson, a town with a population of 21,000, two thirds of which are African American.

"I know the events of the past few days have prompted strong passions, but as details unfold, I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man through reflection and understanding," Obama said.

"We should comfort each other and talk with one another in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds."

oh interesting the KKK is raising money for other KKK members (the ones in blue instead of white) how about that

It’s Monday. I’m going home at 6pm and a middle aged man and a teenage boy are the only people left on the bus with me. I consider the fact that because the driver is also a man I am the only person left on the bus with the correct genetic makeup for boobs. I’m automatically scared, scared because of my own anatomy. I wonder how old I was when I realized that my own body was going to be the cause of the constant anxiety and fear I feel in situations like this. I get off at the last stop and the older man smiles at me while following me up the street. His smile drips, drips, drips and my heart is pounding, pounding, pounding. He turns off down another road, but I run the rest of the way home.

Not all men.

I’m at home on a Tuesday, beginning to plan the travels I want to go on next year. I dream of wandering the streets and meeting strangers. I just can’t wait to escape the city I’ve lived in for 17 long years. But… my mum is hesitant. She’s forever worried about the danger that being a young girl traveling alone can bring. I’ll be alone and she’s scared. Surely I’m invincible. I feel invincible. But I know, I know this danger is real and I can’t help but think to myself, if I feel unsafe in my own city, how am i going to feel in a strange place with strange men who don’t speak the same language as me? If I was my brother planning this, I would probably just be wondering if European girls are going to be hot.

Not all men.

Wednesday is a beautiful sunny day but I’ve always been told that I don’t have a “nice enough body” to wear a bikini on the beach. Ever since I was 6 years old I’ve thought that having tummy fat was ugly. That skin that doesn’t have a perfectly golden glow is undesirable. I amble to a clear patch of sand in my one piece and I can feel pairs of eyes latching onto me. Hairy men in speedos who I don’t look twice at eat into my body with their stares. I’m a piece of meat. I am a piece of meat? I am here for their amusement. Please don’t let me be eaten alive.

Not all men.

Thursday night two friends and I are walking to our god damn school dance when we hear “Jesus look at you! You sluts heading to a pole?” These words snarl out of the mouth of a respectably dressed man and we stop in horror. Shivers roll up my back in fear. It’s dark. We are alone. What. Do. We. Do??? One of us pulls the finger back. I can never be sure how quickly a sexist man can get angry so we walk quickly away. We’re angry, so so angry. But also so… deflated. I wonder if we deserve this shame.

Not all men.

Sitting on the internet, Friday night and scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed:

“Haha, good job at the game today bro. You RAPED them!”
“Damn with tits like that, you’re asking for it :P”

Another sexist comment…
Another sexist comment…
Another sexist comment…

I’m shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and I want to CRY because these boys don’t realize how small they make me feel with just pressing a few keys. I see these boys on the streets, I talk to these boys, I laugh with these boys. Dear GOD, dear GOD i hope these boys don’t think actions speak louder than words…

Not all men.

Three rules that have been drilled into me since I was young run through my mind at 1.30am on a Satur… Sunday Morning:

-Don’t ever talk to strange men
-Don’t ever be alone at night in a strange place
-Don’t ever get into a car with a stranger

I break all 3 of these laws as I pull open the taxi door. Making light conversation with the driver, he doesn’t see my sweaty hand clutching the small pocket knife I keep hidden on me at all times. He doesn’t even realize the fear I feel at his mere presence. He cannot comprehend it, he never will. How easy would this 15 minute car ride be if I was born a boy?

Not all men.

It comes to Sunday, another snoozy, sleepy, Sunday and someone has the AUDACITY to tell me not all men are rapists. I say nothing.

I’m a 17 year old girl.
When I am walking alone and it’s dark, it’s all men.
When I am in a car with a man I don’t know well, it’s all men.
When men drunkenly leer at me on the streets, it’s all men.
When a boy won’t leave me alone at a party, it’s all men.

Not all men are rapists. But for a young girl like me? Every one of them has the potential to be.

Not.
All.
Men.
