ITS NOT SEWING SUPPLIES!
A photo campaign explores the diverse experience that black students at Harvard have to face.
“We were all running because we heard the gunshots and then she stopped and she was like, ‘I think I got shot.’ And I was like, ‘Hadiya, please stop joking,’” Best friend Klyn Jones said. “She was like ‘No seriously, Klyn, I think I got shot’ and she just fell. And then time just like started moving in slow motion.”
Remember a couple weeks ago on Inauguration Day First Lady Michelle Obama, while viewing the parade from the presidential box, suddenly looked up and saw a group of beautiful, energetic Black girls from Chicago fast approaching? The First Lady began to “get down” along with her “homegirls” who were really strutting their stuff. Tomorrow, Michelle will travel home to Chicago to attend the funeral of one of those girls. Fifteen year old Hadiya Pendleton, a high school sophomore, honors student and drill team captain, was shot in the back on a rainy day while huddled under a canopy at a park with friends, just nine days after she’d proudly marched before the President and First Family. She told her family and friends being there was the happiest day in her entire life. Now, the entire city of Chicago is in mourning. There have been protests and marches and calls for an end to gun violence. Police say a gang member randomly fired into the huddled group of innocent kids.
Hadiya’s wake was Friday night.
The coward who murdered her has not been caught.

The African Holocaust has lasted for over 500 years totaling up too 800 million death’s up till now and increasing compared to the Jewish Holocaust which lasted about 12 years totaling only a few million death’s. African’s, men and woman have been tortured, raped, murdered and killed in the worst humanely way’s possible. What’s done to them and continue to be done to them is the worst tragedy throughout history.
How can people who have built the greatest civilization, be reduce to such rubbish in a matter off millenniums. The African people’s pain will be there greatest strength to rise back up again in the future and claim there God given right to live as they shall on this planet.
Europeans or white people have glorified themselves over the horrors the horrors that they have created for black people. They live off the wealth and systems that there grand parent’s and great grand parent’s have left of them to prolong there savagery.
It’s vital that the black man understand the conditions that people have created for them and that he continues to create for himself
This is so sad, but they never taught us this in school
