She speaks three languages. Some muhfuckas can’t even speak one.
true. but also , she was “articulate” to me. that word is very loaded with racism, classism, ableism. i understood perfectly everything she was saying. smh.
UNDERSTOOD EVERYTHING SHE SAID. SHE SPEAKS THREE LANGUAGES. Get the fuck outta here with your racist buuuuuuullllllllsheeeeeiiit
Everybody who watched this and said she wasn’t articulate knew that wasn’t true. What they mean when they say she isn’t “articulate” is that she doesn’t speak like a white person. A shit ton of college professors aren’t ‘articulate’, but nobody shits on them for it. And have you SEEN CNN? And that’s saying nothing of CBS. It’s not that she isn’t “articulate” at all - America doesn’t care about articulation. It’s that she is a black woman who isn’t just bending to the will of a ‘well-respected’ white well-educated lawyer. And actually, it’s really just that she’s a black woman speaking. That’s what makes her “inarticulate”.
The best hood movies. If you haven’t seen one of these my niggas I suggest you check em out.
This past Memorial Day weekend, while walking home from work, twin brothers Aaron and Kristin were brutally attacked around 3 am Sunday in the LES by approximately 10-12 men. Despite eyewitnesses and surveillance video of the attack, the NYPD were quick to label the attack “gang related” and close the case without any investigation. When Aaron’s girlfriend, Cipriana followed up with police a day after the attack she was told that the twins said they did not want an investigation and would “handle it themselves”. Knowing this was untrue, Cipriana encouraged Aaron to contact the police and ask them to pursue the investigation.
When Aaron spoke with police and explained that they did in fact want an investigation he was told he could “face jail time for lying”. It wasn’t until Cipriana took to her blog, urbanbushbabes.com to write about the attack and the lack of police investigation that the press took note (NY Post & Fox 5) and the police suddenly changed their tune. Now the NYPD claims the case was never closed and has labeled it a hate crime.
