Parents of Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis Share Their Loss at the United Nations

Sitting in meetings in the United Nation’s ornate Wilson Palace by the shores of Lake Geneva in the shadow of the Alps seems an odd place to discuss racial discrimination in the United States.

But the problems of racial discrimination quickly hit home at an event earlier this week that hosted the parents of Travon Martin and Jordan Davis, two unarmed young black men killed by armed white men claiming to be acting in self-defense. Made all the more powerful as it came on the heels of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., their affecting and often harrowing testimony immediately erased the distance between Switzerland and the United States. It made the discrimination present and underscored the importance of the work being done here at the U.N.’s review of the U.S. record of racial discrimination.

THERE’S YOUR PROBLEM


By all means, let’s continue to ignore the successes of other developed countries.
Guns are simply not as available in the UK due to strict gun control. There are lower levels of gun violence, and therefore, police have less need to defend themselves. Latest current statistics show only 38 gun homicides in the UK, vs 11,101 in the United States.

The United States teen pregnancy rate is over four times that of the Netherlands, where they have societal openness and comfort in dealing with sexuality and pragmatic governmental policies.

You realize that everything the police are doing in Ferguson is carefully calculated, right? They’re purposely turning peaceful protests into riots. They’re purposely committing violence to incite violence. From saying ‘We won’t be answering 911 calls,’ which is a very clever way to set themselves up to be able to say, ‘We were afraid for our safety - any call could really be an ambush, our lives were in danger’ right down to the camouflage and the military tanks and wearing more body armor than a soldier in a war zone. Its exactly why they’re going for a media blackout - yet allowing certain photos through - they WANT you to see their tanks. They want you to see their riot gear. They WANT you to see a war-zone. They’re trying to sell the world the idea that this community is inherently and constantly a source of violence and turmoil - they want you to think that they [the police] are being attacked daily in a place so vicious they need full body armor. You know why? Because then, at the end of the day, you might just be able to believe the story they’re going to spin. They’re going to tell you that this (white) officer goes to work in this war zone every day - that he spends every working moment in constant fear for his life. They’re going to tell you that Michael Brown attacked this officer. And then they’re going to bring up everything that has happened in the aftermath and try to use it to convince you that he shot that little boy because he was afraid for his life. They’re setting up a defense. You mark my words, they’re trying to set up a defense.

My mom’s take on what’s going on in Ferguson (via actualbanshee)

Your mom isn’t wrong. That’s why it’s so important to keep the signal going. Too many are silenced with lies and fear and if they cannot speak then we have to do it for them.

she’s right. and then they gone pick the most out of touch stupidest people in the state to be on the jury.
always under the guise of “objective” “non-bias”. bullshit. why are you so focused on someone whose unbiased. truth has a liberal bias. if they’re putting people on the jury who aren’t familiar with the case… like who the fuck is this person? someone who doesn’t read the fucking newspaper or watch the news? someone who doesn’t use the internet? someone who don’t know what is going on. i don’t want them judging me. they let the cops go free!

The crystallization of human experience was shattered by the discovery of Uranus, which coincided with doomsday prophecies and volatile unrest amongst the astrological community. Uranus is the father of the Cyclops, the Titans who have the third eye, the single eye, the human pineal gland. The unique tilt of Uranus allows the planet’s inner sun to receive the Sun’s power most directly through it’s polar opening creating a force as powerful as the Sun. Uranus is the planet of raised awareness and the channel of Christ consciousness. The ‘all seeing eye’ of the solar system experiences frequent diamond showers that make for a blue ray of powerful esoteric frequencies. Buddha, Krishna and Christ await beyond the rings of Saturn and electrify the ignorance and fear of Saturn (human reflex) with Uranus revelation, collectiveness, oneness and creative potency.
This is a heavenly package from the higher realms which allows us to supersede our constraints or limitations through awakening, bursts of innovative intuition, overturning established order and magic.  The Uranus ruled age allows for ultra violet visual filters, frequent ‘ah ha’ moments and the outer illustration of hidden unconscious insights. The high voltage planet stimulates electrical currents through the nadis in the etheric body offers opportunity for transformation. There is no more important time in history to be active in meditation then now. Raise the energy to the single eye and flow in a cosmic harmony with this new energy coming down from the inflamed eye on fire, the cosmic Kundalini.

As Uranus Retrograde is here why not…this is beautifully written
