Snowcones with condensed milk=the essence of my childhood in Guyana

same here growing up in antigua

I was mad when I went to Guyana to try this and the man said he had no condense milk because he was closing off for the day although he had 3 unopened cans sitting in front of us. I really wanted to try the snow cone with condensed milk.

Damn that look good

My tía is coming back from Belize and best believe we are making snocones!!! With the sweet milk!!

Love them in barbados

The Audubon Ballroom, NYC, 21 February 1965

If you look closely at the middle photo you can’t help but notice that right beside Brother Malcolm’s bullet-riddled body, holding his head in fact, is an Asian American woman. Who was she and why was she there?

Google Yuri Kochiyama

Happy Black History YEAR!

P.S.: The brother in the top left photo of the middle panel… the one who appears to be giving a man who was just shot in the chest mouth-to-mouth resuscitation… FBI AGENT GENE ROBERTS.

Plain-Clothes Cops Shoot Hoodie-Wearing Pizza Man Who Thought He Was Being Robbed 

20-year old Philippe Holland was delivering pizzas on Tuesday night in Philly when he was approached by plain-clothes cops. These cops weren’t wearing uniforms. Philippe thought he was being robbed, so he ran to his car and started driving. 

These cops decided to start shooting at Philippe as he was driving. They shot the car 10 times. Philipe was shot at least three times: in the neck, a leg and head. Doctors said that he could be permanently blind after the shot to his head damaged his eyesight. 

Philippe works two jobs, and now his life will be completely changed. The cops are justifying this shooting: 

Police spokesperson Lt. John Stanford noted that the officers may have violated the department’s use-of-force guidelines, which states that officers “shall not discharge their firearms at or from a moving vehicle unless deadly physical force is being used against the police officer or another person present, by means other than the moving vehicle.”

“That is our policy, ‘Don’t shoot at moving vehicles’ – it’s clearly laid out that way,” Stanford remarked. “But I wasn’t there, so I can’t say whether these officers were right or wrong, what their process of thinking was, whether they were in fear for their lives or not.

I wasn’t there either, but I can tell you right now, THESE COPS WERE WRONG AND THEY MOST LIKELY JUST RUINED AN INNOCENT MAN’S LIFE. 

How will Philippe be able to continue working if he’s blind? He certainly won’t be able to deliver pizzas anymore. 

If you let somebody else say it “WP”.He deserve to be shot. Cause he is a hoodlum and a gangster.This shit is pissing me off.

Back when George W. Bush was president, liberals were regularly accused of being disloyal or anti-American if they disagreed with the policies the administration was undertaking. As Bush himself said, you were either with us or with the terrorists, and as far as many of his supporters were concerned, “us” meant the Bush administration and everything they wanted to do, including invading Iraq. You may have noticed that now that there’s a Democrat in the White House, conservatives no longer find disagreeing with the government’s policies to be anti-American; in fact, the truest patriotism is now supposedly found among those whose hatred of the president, and the government more generally, burns white-hot in the core of their souls.
Uncivil Disobedience and the Opposite of Patriotism (via smdxn)

I have been saying that since Obama has got into office. Such a double standard.
