It’s a great project idea; but it is also a heartbreaking and HIGHLY REVEALING project. Revealing racism towards not only adults, but children… It also, I hope, will bring attention to the problem we still have in America with this inhumane, cruel and unjust legal hate and racism.
I also wonder if they will the last (one of few) legal execution photos to be reveled? It’s an old photo, of a man who they electrocuted. It went very wrong and the photo shows this. After that photos of these executions no longer were allowed… Wonder why.
And my gods… this poor, beautiful child breaks my heart…. !!!!!
The mug shot of 14-year-old George Stinney (part of the M. Watt Espy Collection at UAlbany), the youngest person to be sentenced to death and executed in the United States following a racially-biased trial. For more than 40 years, Espy, an opponent of the death penalty, traced the often tragic history of legal executions in […]

For those curious about my thoughts on Thanksgiving and the current on-goings regarding the Native’s and the land the government greedily is trying to snatch back once they realized it wasn’t worthless… Growing up, I’ve always said that Thanksgiving was my “fuck the world” day and that every day otherwise I was grateful.
In this video below, my friend and big brother spells it out beautifully and far better than I ever could in the following. Listen and question what you believe… Question what society has taught…
And no, I still won’t be celebrating Thanksgiving.
Origins and reasons behinds founding anything, especially police officers as well as laws. Upcoming soon I’ll be posting an essay on police origins nut it’ll be so much deeper thsn simply that. So, as I was doing research, I was listening to the following video, and was angry as hell that the right to take away felons right to vote, obtain financial aid, obtain rightful access to resources for the purpose of empowerment & with hope of the ex-felon not returning to prison.
But that is truly an unattainable dream if you’ve got a felony on your record they apparently want you back in prison as it gives them more money. If they truly wanted the best for people out of prison, they would help anyone who participated and learned new trade(s). The various vocations many study in prison also would be handled better by helping felons put to use these newly learned skills.
But when was this law implemented, and why? For white supremacy and if anyone say this to be a lie, do some legal research. The below video gives a deeper explanation of what happened, who was the first person and state to put it to law, and for what purpose. Though the purpose is clear, the proof is documented as he shows.
This man’s channel is a great source of knowledge and you can interact with him during the live show. He actually impressed me; speaking out on America’s racist system and against racism in the police of America and knowledge of their origins (slavery).
Quoting the twisted & racism found in documents regarding denying felons the right to vote:
“This plan will eliminate the ‘darky‘ as a political factor…so there would be no concern “felt for the complete supremacy of the white race in government.”
I knew racism was the reason for prisons as they are; but I failed to learn of this until today. And so while you may not be surprised, I hope you are outraged and let the ‘secrets’ or America fuel a firey passion to unite us all; from my fellow Hispanic community, to the Black community; we need unity!!! We also need to stop fighting our own…
Never, ever forget this young man… Never forget what these grown white so called men did to him with no regret. He was just a kid; like so many today; and they were so afraid of him they tortured and horrendously slaughtered him.
And never forget his mothers strength; the strength it took to keep that casket open for the world to see what these soulless, proud killers did to him.
Read his story, written by his strong, beautiful mother. Click here for the book. I was so outraged and shocked when recently I was speaking of him to someone and they did not know who he was……. This is NOT someone we forget; this is not someone HISTORY forgets. Make sure we see to that. May his beautiful soul now be blessed…

If you are in the UK – especially London, be sure to check out the film selection regarding the heroic and inspiring Dr. Tiller. A man dedicated to what he believed in, only to be murdered by one of the insane anti-choice/”pro”-lifers. Check it out July 6th, London!!! (information follows below as does link, I must give a very, very quick rant first.
It’s simply astonishing how pro”lifers” support an unjust death penalty system here in the states, yet hate doctors whom perform safe and moral medical practices so much that these “pro-lifers” (aka anti-choicers) somehow think killing innocent adult for caring for his patients is somehow, moral!? Umm, what we do medically is no one’s business, anyway. These “people”‘disgust me.
As a woman who in fact does support 3rd term abortions, and does not consider it murder (because…well…it’s not, simply put), I wish so badly I was in the UK to attend… It seems I’m always in the wrong country or city when things like this happen >.< anyhow! So London & all you in the UK who can go; below are the details and the link for tickets & etc. Ohhh I wanna go!!!
