Nas Talks Tupac, Biggie, Jay Z Beefs"Tupac was a little different. Pac was very vocal about his issues with Nas, but was willing to remove a diss from his Makaveli release after the two talked out their differences. The 25-year-old MC died before he had the chance to speak with Nas again. “He passed the day before my birthday,” recalled Nas. “I was gon’ meet him in Vegas and it rained in Vegas when he passed.

At least one cop has been disciplined for ordering the NYPD’s highest-ranking uniformed black officer out of his auto while the three-star chief was off-duty and parked in Queens, the Daily News has learned.
"How you can not know or recognize a chief in a department SUV with ID around his neck, I don’t know,” a police source said.
Chief Douglas Zeigler, 60, head of the Community Affairs Bureau, was in his NYPD-issued vehicle near a fire hydrant when two plainclothes cops approached on May 2, sources said.
One officer walked up on each side of the SUV at 57th Ave. and Xenia St. in Corona about 7 p.m. and told the driver to roll down the heavily tinted windows, sources said.

This just shows that no matter how you dress, how much you achieve in life, how educated you are, how much money you have, what your status is, some people will see you as just another black person that’s up to no good. 


To those who think we live a post-racial society…


I had to double check that this wasn’t from The Onion, The Daily Currant, The Freewood Post or other such satire site out there. Ugh.

Hey Brazilian Police, what did you expect would happen if you lob a tear gas grenade in a country that has some of the best soccer players in the world and where the Confed Cup is currently playing?
Even Beckham couldn’t do it any better….

YES! YES! GO BRAZIL, GO.

Bend it like a Brazilian rioter. 

I’d piss myself if somebody lobbed my teargas back at me with their foot. Holy crap.

"MODERN DAY LYNCHINGS"
Kody (Pretty Boy) Ingham (pictured above) was found hanging from a tree in front of his white girlfriends house on July 15, 2013 (the same night as the George Zimmerman verdict) in Athens, Texas. it was chalked up as a suicide and no investigation ensued, even though two hours prior he called his mother to pick him up from the site he died at. no newspaper article, just a four sentence obituary in the local papers and his family has been trying hard to make any mainstream news channel blow up the story to find the killers.
Roy Veal was found hanging in Woodville, Mississippi in 2004. he originally lived in Seattle and went to his mother’s home in Woodville to help her fight for the rights to their family land against a white man. Oil had been found underneath the land.
Roy’s head was covered with a pillow case and burned papers of the documented proof he had to prove his mothers’ ownership were found burned at his feet. He was later found hanging from a tree. His death was ruled a suicide.
His family is still trying to get attention for the case 
Reynard Johnson, 17, was found hanging from a tree on his front lawn on June 16, 2000 in Kokomo, Mississippi. His death was ruled a suicide even though the belt around his neck was not his. Authorities said since no hate group left a message by the body, there was nothing to investigate. Family members said the motive was his relationship with a white girl, he was constantly being harassed because of this.
