Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man  and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York.    Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.

Andrews was arrested in April  2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.

*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*

The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.

FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says. 

Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”. 

Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.

Nice! Stick I too em.

Police planting crack to lock up Black people is no conspiracy theory. It’s American History (1980-present).

"Originally, in the 20s and 30s, the stereotype of someone who was schizophrenic was the housewife who was sad and withdrawn, and would not do her duties as a housewife; would not do the housework. This was the typical case of schizophrenia. And then, in the 60s, something shifted. The actual criteria for schizophrenia shifted. A lot of psychiatrists and hospitals and police were encountering young, angry black men who were part of the civil rights movement. Who were part of the riots — the uprisings — in the Black Power movement. Who were angry. Who were perceiving a conspiracy of power against them, that was called paranoia. They would see it is white privilege, but it was called paranoia. And so we actually see the diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia change. So now you have anger and paranoia and hostility being included as criteria, whereas 30 years before they hadn’t been. Because the stereotype has changed. So there’s a way in which the DSM and the perspectives of the psychiatrists and the doctors who were giving these diagnoses is thoroughly politically constructed, and thoroughly dependent on the culture and context that they’re within."

For anyone interested in reading more about how schizophrenia moved from being a diagnosis assigned to white, middle-class women to one used to pathologize and institutionalize noncompliant black men in the 1960s, Jonathan Metzl’s The Protest Psychosis: How Schizophrenia Became a Black Disease is a good place to start.

Just call them all nigger!’: School administrators used racial slurs in text messages on district-issued cell phones


Pennsylvania Superintendent Richard Como and Athletics Director Jim Donato had racist conversations on school-issued cell phonesIT technician found the conversations while upgrading the phones and reported themSchool board knew but ‘let the administrators stay in their jobs’Both men resigned in August after the report was leaked to the district attorney, who launched an investigation

Two Pennsylvania school administrators repeatedly referred to black students and teachers by the N-word in text messages they exchanged on cell phones issued by the school district, it has been revealed.

Coatesville Area School District Superintendent Richard Como and Director of Athletics and Activities Jim Donato, who are both white, are now the subject of a criminal investigation over their use of the racial epithets in text message conversations with each other.

Both administrators resigned from their positions at the end of August, though theChester County Daily Local reports that they were only forced out after the transcripts of the text messages were leaked to the district attorney, who launched a criminal investigation.

The newspaper reports that the school board was prepared to let both men stay in their jobs, even after an IT technician found the text messages and reported them to school officials.

According to a transcript obtained by the Daily Local, the racist exchanges began in June.

In one, Donato sent a message to Como that appears to say all black students should have the same last name.

He wrote: ‘All should just have whatever first names they want…then last name is Nigger!

'Leroy Nigger, Preacher Nigger, Night train niggee, clarence nigger, Latoya nigger, Thelma nigger and so on.'

The superintendent, who has led the district since 2005 and drew a salary of nearly $200,000 last year, responded: ‘Great idea! Joe nigger bill nigger snake nigger got a nice ring to it.’

He added: ‘Could have whole homerooms of nigger!’

The Donato, the athletics director, replied: ‘Hahahahaha! Will Nigger report to the office, pardon the interruption but will nigger report to nurses office. Nigger to lunch now!’

Later, when the superintendent Como was talking about 23 teachers he had to lay off, Donato asked: ‘How many nigger out of 23? Not enough!”

Como replied: ‘Don’t know but think it’s only 4-5. At most until last minute rush of firing by Goo of Phoenix and Kamara.’

'Good hangings there,' Donato responded.

AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.

My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”

This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!

The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.

This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.

This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!
