I’m everything but broke.

I’m trying to make it home too. Cause I’m riding around in the same car that the police pulled me over in and drawed guns on me and my children on March 3, 2017. I need someone to trail me home now and make sure I make it from East Oakland to West Oakland safe while I left my children’s school.

The Murder they called a Suicide: 19 year old Christopher Kalonji

On January 28, 2016, 19 year old Black Loved One, Christopher Kalonji, was in a mental health crisis and needed help.  His PTSD was in a flare up, and he became so anxious and distraught that he called 911 himself, requesting medical assistance.  Instead of getting help, police arrived and separated his family and friends from him, escalating the situation, and even called in a SWAT team.  Instead of providing help, police killed Christopher in his own home, where he had lived with his parents for 15 years.

Profiled for Being a Good Sun in BART: BART and its anti-poor people harassment increases

“What is your name,” a mechanical voice shouted through the receiver of my phone. Before  I could answer this bizarre beginning to a call, he added, “ What is your address, Where do you work, Do you have any other phone numbers…?” The barrage of accusatory questions with no basis continued for several minutes with me barely able to get a word in edgewise, and then.., “Do you have a 13 year old son?”, with this sentence… my heart began to race, my eyes started to blur and the the room began to warp.

Wells Fargo Took My House the IRS is Taking Everything Else

Four years ago I met the love of my life. As a 62 year old male bachelor/Hippie Madman, I met the love of my life.  We got hitched, I’ll just say our life together is perfect as a saltnpepper low income senior. With senior and disability problems. I am not saying we don’t debate. We do that. Quite loudly sometimes. Outside of that we get along great. As I say, she has spiced up my life.

“A 90-day moratorium on use of force is actually the norm in certain places,” said Lisa Marie Alatorre, of the Coalition on Homelessness. “Even asking SFPD and the city to take this seriously is a way for us of asking everyone to take seriously a paradigm shift in [policing],” Lisa concluded.

My ovary???

“The fibroid shrunk one centimeter,” my gynecologist said. I stopped at Clinica de la Raza, because I had an appointment that day for a follow up on an ultrasound that was performed prior to my surgery. My gynecologist told me I had a cyst in my left ovary, we just don’t know where or what size.

I used to sell CD’s on the street and I was never killed. This goes out to all my fellow light-skinned POC's and poor white people

“$5-10.00 per Disc- Hip Hop , Salsa, You name it, we got it,” At the corner of Vine and Melrose, Hollywood and Vine and Pico and Wilshire in LA, I would scream out my best CD deal of the day. I was 11 years old when i started selling CD’s. My best location was in front of the 7-11 downtown, until the poLice came and arrested me for soliciting without a license. For years me and my mama sold CD’s, art and all kinds of other things considered “illegal” on the street. We never had a permit or license to vend, sell or solicit.
