"I don’t wanna tell you what to do, I want you to do what I want you to do but because you wanna do it"
She been basic,
Goes back to the strip and that usher episode too
Does Aldridge even use his size like he seems so soft to me
Not at all. I don’t care for his game but it’s pretty effective.
the militarization of America’s police force concerns me. I don’t think the police are impartial servicemen of the law who only want to see justice done. They’re a gang who have decided its going to be “us vs. them”, and they’ll do whatever’s necessary to get what they want, whether its legal or not.
If by “good cops”, you mean cops who won’t go out of their way to harm anyone or personally do anything fucked up? Yes, I think cops like that exist.
However, those kind of cops are guilty by inaction when they see their fellow brothers breaking the law, beating people or killing people and they refuse to speak up about it. The code of silence among policemen is rarely broken.
Any time theres a discussion on how fucked up cops are, someone always joins the conversation like “MY DAD/BROTHER/UNCLE IS A COP AND HE’S A GOOD GUY”. I’m sure he is, but I’d bet my left nut he’s seen his co-workers violating people countless amount of times and did nothing to stop it.
The blue wall/blue code of silence is very real and pretty sad
"Tupac died at 25. If Malcolm X died at 25 he would have been a street hustler named Detroit Red. If Martin Luther King died at 25 he would’ve been known as a local baptist preacher. And if I had died at 25 I would’ve been known as a struggling musician. Only a sliver of my life’s potential."
I have an interview in 7 minutes.
Mentally preparing to put on my enthusiastic, fake, agreeable non-threatening Black man persona.
At least you can prep. You ever get that impromptu phone call quasi interview? gotta turn it on in a second. It’s so unnatural.
