I always kind of get a little upset when people bring up slavery and say that all slave masters were horrible people. Some were, no doubt, but my great great great grandfather was not. 

He bought slaves in entire family units if he could and did his best to reunite families if they’d been separated, even going so far as to buy them from other slave owners. The slave quarters were MASSIVE and each family had their own suite and only singles had to share rooms. He and his sons and grandsons taught mothers and fathers skills like carpentry, gardening, animal husbandry, blacksmithing, and equipment repairs. His wife was a retired school teacher and taught them how to read, write, and do basic math if they were interested in learning. His daughter taught the mothers cooking, cleaning, and sewing. They learned etiquette and how to ‘speak proper’. Basically when they worked off their purchase cost plus profit and chose to leave as free humans, they were very well educated and rounded people. Most stayed with him though because he didn’t charge them rent and they didn’t have to pay for food as long as they worked for him, be it in the field or in his stores in town.  If they did choose to leave, he did what he could to help them find them a job. 

There’s even a record of him that he found out his neighbor, a fellow slave owner, was being really abusive to his slaves, so he bought that land from the owner and kicked him off the property. It almost broke him but his production quadrupled in a few years. In this part of rural Texas, there’s a heavy population of people who have my family’s name plus -son at the end because a lot of slaves took our name in appreciation for what he’d done for them. When he was asked why he did what he did, he said, “Well, they’re people kind of like us. I just always think, if me and my family was in shackles and [black people] held the chains, I’d want them to do the same for us.“ 

I’ve brought this up before and one of the people who I told about it said “But he owned slaves so he was a racist piece of shit” and “bet he was sexist too” and “probably raped and murdered slaves”. 

That bit upset me. The records we have kept track of deaths of slaves. Most of them were from illness or old age or childbirth. A few are from injuries. It doesn’t specify what injuries they were or what caused them so I’m not saying it’s impossible. But even if every one of those few “injuries” was caused by him raping or murdering his slaves, that doesn’t make him bad, does it? I could be biased because family. Either way I feel really bad being proud of him because yeah he owned slaves but he was not inherently evil?? “He was a good, kind, generous slave owner!” “Yeah but slave owner and slave owner = shitlord” is basically what I hear. 

Anti-sjs be like “not all slave masters!”

We literally turned Baltimore City into a police state because the alternative was holding police accountable for killing a man.
— @paulmgardner

Let that sink in. Instead of holding cops accountable for killing a man, they allowed it all to fester and get to the point where the National Guard is in the house. Tell me that justice. (via alwaysbewoke)

It’s Time to Talk About the Female Victims of Police Brutality

Last week, Dante Servin, a Chicago police officer, was acquitted of involuntary manslaughter for fatally shooting an unarmed black woman in the back of the head in 2012. Servin was off-duty when he encountered a young woman named Rekia Boyd hanging out with friends in an alley; he confronted the group for being too loud and an argument ensued. Servin alleges that he saw what he thought was a gun and fired several shots at the group, who, by that point, had their backs turned and were heading in the opposite direction. No gun was found at the scene and a witness to the fatal shooting said Servin was “constantly shooting” and “trying to kill all of us.”

Servin was the first off-duy Chicago cop to be charged with manslaughter in 20 years. The ruling acquitting him was paradoxical: In order to prove involuntary manslaughter, prosecutors had to show that Servin acted recklessly, but according to Illinois law, intentionally firing at someone on the street “is an act so dangerous it can’t be considered reckless,” Judge Dennis Porter wrote. “It is intentional and the crime, if any there be, is first-degree murder.” In his opinion, Judge Porter lamented the fact that Servin wasn’t charged with murder, but then acquitted Servin because the involuntary-manslaughter charge wasn’t strong enough.

A day later, Michigan news outlets reported that the cop who killed Aiyana Stanley-Jones had been restored to active duty. Like Boyd, Stanley-Jones was unarmed. In 2010, the 7-year-old was sleeping under a Hannah Montana blanket at her grandmother’s house when she was shot in the head in what Officer Joseph Weekley said was an accidental discharge during a midnight raid. (Detroit police were searching for a man who may have committed a recent murder; they were also being tailed by an A&E film crew for an episode of The First 48.)

Even though women account for 20 percent of unarmed people of color killed by the police between 1999 and 2014, their cases rarely garner the attention that the deaths of black men and boys do. Part of that has to do with the widespread assumptions about racial violence. “From lynching to police brutality, the presumed victim is a black male,” Dr. Treva B. Lindsey, an assistant professor of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies at Ohio State University, explained to Dame. “Therefore, black women and girls are viewed as exceptional victims as opposed to perpetual victims of anti-black racial violence.”
