i appreciate that one hadith by P. Muhammad where he reportedly said that if something u don’t believe is good is happening then oppose it physically/verbally/emotionally etc, if u can’t do that then do what u can—, if u can’t do anything then leave, if u can’t leave then oppose it in ur heart n God knows whats in ur heart.
Ur okay bb. Goddess knows.
am not here for ‘racism’ against white people arguments
eat it fuckers.
Reactions to Barack Obama’s statement on Ferguson
I was shaking my head throughout his presser. He made the argument that we need the program that funnels military equipment to local PDs because “some of them didn’t have radios.” This is not about radios. This is about the minuscule likelihood that a police department would need mine resistant armored personnel carriers and the incentive structure in place that turns ostensible “peacekeepers” into a paramilitary occupying force.
That last tweet is the most frightening. Observe the absolute denial: “Barack Obama is either very tired, doesn’t believe a word he’s saying re: Michael Brown, or both.” It leaves no option that Obama is actually every bit like his predecessors, does believe every word he’s saying, and is every bit the power-hungry tyrant libertarians have long called him out to be.
It’s not really about the person in power, it’s about the power they wield - and the voters who grant them this power are not absolved of culpability. And if they go into the next election hoping that the next guy (or gal) is going to be different, they are, in truth, simply offering their approval to the system itself.
baritonepats this is what i was talking about
let u stay zoning imma just scale back n let my silence inclinations take over
i speak in threads feel fabrics weave connections dream in patterns taste colors and veil our ticks in the unsaid
Los Angeles Police Department officers allegedly beat a man to death little more than a week before their fatal shooting of Ezell Ford, KTLA is reporting. An officer broke his hand during the incident, Cmdr. Andrew Smith, an LAPD spokesman, told the local TV station.
Roughly four blocks from where Ford was later shot and killed, Omar Abrego pulled over outside his home and was beaten, still wearing his Amtrak uniform, on Aug. 2. A preliminary coroner’s report suggested that Abrego, who had been driving erratically, was on cocaine.
According to a statement from the LAPD, the altercation occurred when Abrego “attempted to flee.” The statement continued, “The suspect sustained a laceration and a rescue ambulance was requested. The suspect was transported to a local hospital where he failed to respond to treatment and was pronounced dead around 5:10 a.m.”
The Los Angeles Times reported that Abrego “suffered a severe concussion and multiple facial and body contusions.”
The death is being investigated by the police department, which noted that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office would also conduct “a comprehensive review.”
Civil rights leaders met Thursday with LAPD officials over the killing of Ford, a mentally challenged, unarmed black man.
An eyewitness to Ford’s death told HuffPost that an officer shouted “shoot him” before three shots rang out.

Im putting all my resources together to have a pool of desi works cause Naino n I were talking bout UCI’s lack of them in the AsAm dept and our overall lack of access to works that aren’t about a homogenized ‘desi culture’ in a white/western/euro centric context— i mention the context cause the last few decades of mainstream urdu (punjabi/hindi heavy urdu) and hyderabadi urdu speaking cultures have developed a really strong presence of western/diasporic desi/white cultures.
We were talking about the origins of urdu and how it was actually created as a bridge. Urdu was an army language—it mixed hindi farsi arabic n some turkish. The word itself comes from a Turkish word (Ordu) —that means army. It was meant to be a communication bridge—-Not to instigate the erasure or amalgamation of the cultures that went into making it…
In Karachi, it was really frustrating to see and notice all the w/d/w influences on daily interactions—from the new restaurants/fashions/languages/manner in which they spoke to you—and with each other as well. Like… its a small thing to point out but i noticed soo many more people saying ‘sister’ instead of ‘behn, baji, appa, etc..’… and it didn’t matter the class or space we were in—everyone everywhere is using english more.
Also the non-urdu speaking populations alll freaking speak urdu and english (sometimes)—for the most part. And…urdu speaking ppl barely really mention the contribution of non-urdu/muslim speaking/culture folks in their daily lives. Allll of Nani jaan’s care takers were either Punjabi and Christian or Siraiki and Christian. And majority of in-home care takers are Christian—in Karachi at least. Pathaan n Hazaara people make up majority of the labor force. And they all have different cultures and clothing and food and language and I didn’t have to know abt any of that growing up cause Urdu/english speaking people got that shit easy.
The one class i took about south asian cultures hit all the bollywood stops without a single mention of Punjabi/Tamil/Urdu/Pashtuun/Nepali cinema art or literature. It also framed a lot of the diasporic works and ppl in the videos/movies in a very-again—white/western/euro centric context— like the people were well integrated into that context—the only diff being their features (for some) or the food they ate but that was as far reaching as some of their ‘hybridized predicaments’ went. Not to dismiss those at all but like ehhhh
And Appa’s working on serious shit about the Hazara and Pashtuun populations abroad and desi culture(s) variances in diff western/euro/white/diasporic contexts and i just… need and want more stories of Desi cultures that don’t involve white/euro/western presence or the ‘diasporic desi’—in a western context.
If any of ya’ll have resources—im talking art, poetry, theory, novels, ppl to look into/wanna just talk about desi kxd experiences—pleasee let this bache know or point me in a direction
So Sadaat Hassan Manto, Nehru and Ismat Chugtai are #1 rn
