Maybe that would have filled this tiny little hole in my heart, but probably not. And sometimes I think I have felt everything I’m ever gonna feel, and from here on out I’m not gonna feel anything new, just lesser versions of what I’ve already felt.
We have a criminal justice system that treats you better if you’re rich and guilty than if you’re poor and innocent.
Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover

Perhaps the new documentary coming out in 2015, “Painted Down” couldn’t have done so at a more fitting time, considering the recent controversy that erupted last week on Fox Network’s new series “Gotham.”
In case you haven’t heard, the Warner Bros. Television produced show created an uproar when the show was caught red handed in the act of a “paint down” last week. In other words, a white stunt woman, doubling for a black actress on the show, had “dark makeup applied to the face, in a hair and makeup test, in advance of two days of filming in New York.”
However, the practice of “painting down” white stunt people to double for black actors has been going on for a long time, even to this day; though there are many black professional stuntmen and women available for such work.
