It's tough being poor anywhere in the world, but here in the hypocritically wealthiest and hypocritically most racist nation on earth it is particularly challenging. When those with so much more wealth flaunt it and those with white skin privilege pretend white privilege doesnt exist: that's when it gets especially challenging.

How to (Maybe) Survive and Encouter With Law Enforcement Even If You're Black Brown or Disabled!

October 2014

Since September 11, 2001, there have been numerous incidents involving law enforcement severely injuring or killing civilians. The vast majority of these victims have been black, brown or disabled.

Most recently the incident that has made national headlines regarding this sort of incident involved unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

Unfair Fare Evasion

On September 25, 2014, I was stopped by the San Francisco Police and given a ticket for fare evasion.

With the influx of Tech Boomers and rising housing costs, also came this new intolerance. No coincidence!

BB Guns

I heard a young girl crying hysterically outside of my home, which kicked my maternal instincts into overdrive as I rushed to her aid. "They shot me with them BB guns!"

This Story Is Not About Alex Nieto

April 21, 2014

On March 22, 2014 Alex Nieto was shot and killed by SFPD, citing claims that he appeared to have a firearm that he allegedly drew on officers. It was later disclosed to be a taser he used in his work as a security guard.

San Francisco County Jail Cookbook #6?

March 25, 2014

With the news of 6 SFPD Officers being indicted by federal prosecuters, the $50,000 question is: Are things back to normal in SF, or will more people than ever be arrested for alleged marijuana offenses, or have they had their fill?

I've been arrested more times than anyone since “Brownie Mary” in 20 years.
