  • Re: Solange - A Seat at the Table (#1 Album in the U.S.)

    Dope album I liked it a lot. Was smooth all the way through. I didn't know this while I was listening, but I heard somebody say tweet had background vocals on a couple songs. Hopefully I catch it on the second listen.


    she's on f.u.b.u.

    I think mad and cranes as well

    2. Don't start shit you can't finish. Women can't expect that every man is on some "I'll never hit a woman" shit. Just like it was already said nobody would give 2 fucks if a 5'7 170lb dude got his ass whooped by a bigger man. You just accept that he shouldn't have been starting shit. Same goes here. I don't condone whooping a woman for no reason, but I also ain't going to jump out on the line of defense for a woman who started some shit then got hit back. Ain't like dude stomped her out or went next level on her. He took her down and got up and tried to leave.

    this. Idk how people preach for equality, but if a woman swings on a man, she shouldnt be checked for it?

    that dont sound too equal to me...

    I'm a feminist lol

    There's a lot hypocrisy surrounding the issue, but violence is never ok. Men and women should keep their hands to themselves. Otherwise both parties should expect to face some sort of consequences regardless of who intiated the contact

    Its best if someone swings or puts their hands on you, regardless of gender, you either retreat and/or call the authorities ....

    Or if necessary you try retaliate with equal force

    That said, I try to keep my hands to myself

    I know in the heat of the moment, it can be hard to maintain control and you may lose your cool

    So I've always been of the mindset that if I put hands on a man or woman expect to be hit back.

    What's funny is a lot of people have no idea what Hilary is proposing to do.

    She has actually taken the feasible parts of Bernie's policies and folded it into the Democratic platform.

    I care less about the candidate, personally; and more about the direction they are moving the country.


    - Developing national guidelines outlining the appropriate use of force by police officers. A clear set of rules has never existed, instead it has always been completely subjective and up to the officer's discretion as to what qualifies as "imminent danger"

    - Acknowledging Implicit Bias and Investing over $1 Billion in state-of-the-art law enforcement training at every level. Addressing issues such as alternatives to incarceration, community policing, use of force, de-escalation, crisis intervention etc.

    - Supporting federal, state and local legislation to combat racial profiling

    - Strengthening the U.S. Department of Justice’s pattern or practice unit—to better identify and investigate civil rights violations.

    - Doubling funding for the U.S. Department of Justice “Collaborative Reform” program. Helping the curation and mobilization of best practices and effective policing strategies.

    - Providing federal matching funds to make body cameras available to every police department in America.

    - Collecting and reporting national data to inform policing strategies and provide greater transparency and accountability when it comes to crime, officer-involved shootings, and deaths in custody.


    - Reforming mandatory minimum sentencing. Mitigate the excessively long sentencing of nonviolent drug offenders. Effectively fighting against racial inequality in our criminal justice system.

    - Cutting mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenses in half.

    • Allowing current nonviolent prisoners to seek fairer sentences

    Eliminating the sentencing disparity for crack and powder cocaine so that equal amounts of crack and powder cocaine carry equal sentences, and applying this change retroactively.

    Reforming the “strike” system, so that nonviolent drug offenses no longer count as a “strike,” reducing the mandatory penalty for second- and third-strike offenses.

    - Focusing federal enforcement resources on violent crime, not simple marijuana possession.

    - Prioritizing treatment and rehabilitation—rather than incarceration—for low-level, nonviolent drug offenders.

    - Dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline.

    Providing $2 billion in support to schools to reform overly punitive disciplinary policies, calling on states to reform school disturbance laws, and encouraging states to use federal education funding to implement social and emotional support interventions.

    - Ending the privatization of prisons. Removing private industry incentives to over-incarceration.

    - Promote successful re-entry by formerly incarcerated individuals

    Removing barriers and creating pathways to employment, housing, health care, education, and civic participation, including:

    •Taking executive action to “ban the box” for federal employers and contractors, so that applicants have an opportunity to demonstrate their qualifications before being asked about their criminal records.

    Investing $5 billion in re-entry job programs for formerly incarcerated individuals so that individuals can have a fair shot at getting back on their feet and becoming productive, contributing members of society.

    •Supporting legislation to restore voting rights to individuals who have served their sentences.

    - Keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, other violent criminals, and the severely mentally ill


    - Launch a national campaign to modernize and elevate the profession of teaching.

    - State and Shool District funding to provide every student in America an opportunity to learn computer science.

    - Rebuild America’s schools.

    Double subsidies for efforts to fix and modernize America’s classrooms

    - Affordable College Allowing families with income up to $125,000 will pay no tuition at in-state four-year public colleges and universities.

    •All community colleges will offer free tuition.

    A $25 billion fund will support historically black colleges and universities, Hispanic-serving institutions, and other minority-serving institutions in building new ladders of opportunity for students.

    Borrowers will be able to refinance loans at current rates, providing debt relief to an estimated 25 million people. They’ll never have to pay back more than 10 percent of their income, and all remaining college debt will be forgiven after 20 years.

    •Delinquent borrowers and those in default will get help to protect their credit and get back on their feet.

    Significantly cut interest rates to reduce the burden for future borrowers so the government never profits from college student loans.

    - Crack down on predatory schools, lenders, and bill collectors.

    -Executive action to offer a three-month moratorium on student loan payments to all federal loan borrowers.

    That will give every borrower a chance to consolidate their loans, sign up for income-based repayment plans, and take advantage of opportunities to reduce their monthly interest payments and fees.

    That's what makes this decision easier for me than most.

    I know her platform, agenda very well

    Most of the policies Bernie has been pushing for for decades

    She'll be a compatent president

    I just don't trust that she will put our best interest before her own, which I believe are not always one and the same

    And nothing Bernie or Hilary proposed is feasible unless they have a majority in Congress... Which is totally dependant on their supporters voting

    That said, the choice between Bernie and Hilary for me has always boiled down to...

    Who do you trust more?

    And do you want slow progress or someone who is going to disrupt the status quo

    A Bernie presidency being the later

  • Re: Did she just ask him to apologize for a rape he was acquitted for?

    Seen it last night

    Rape controversy aside, i wanted to support a Blk film and honor nat turners memory...

    Along with me and my bf, there were probably like 4 other blk couples and a older white couple in the theater

    Didn't know what to think about the random scene with blood coming from the corn

    But otherwise great film, especially for a first time director

    Had to turn away during the force feeding scene
