Ugh. FINE. Tumblr finally recommended a blog I couldn’t resist.
I. love. the. Anaconda. video. but the writeups I’ve been seeing keep referring to Drake as a co-star, which I think misses a big part of the point.
The reason this video rules is because Drake is an extra. Drake is a prop. Drake is a bro in the comfy-casual clothes that he rolled up to the set in, who has no lines or purpose other than the be ground upon, and whose face is obscured by shadows most of the time.
This is not a continuation of the Drake/Nicki/Rih media narrative. This is a dank-as-fuck feminist power play. This is, “Drake is whatever to me.” And this is a man who, if he isn’t at the top of his game, is close to it. A huge celebrity. And here is Nicki looking fucking amazing, tormenting him into a boner, then swatting his hand away and walking out of frame.
Your anaconda don’t want none unless she got buns, hun? Maybe she doesn’t want your anaconda. Maybe she’ll do whatever the fuck she wants with her buns, and it doesn’t matter what you think or feel.
and in that moment, i swear we were drake
No words. She was also with Talib who was told by police to keep his hands up or they’ll blow his brains out. And some resident protestors are exhausted with everything and saying that street medics told them they’re experiencing a subcategory of PTSD.
white people who talk revolution while letting Black people continue take the bullets can go straight to hell and burn.
Any of us white people who does not consider “no more black people dying to prop up my power and privilege” a core value - any of us who would not put ourselves between a cop’s gun and a Black person’s body so that not one more Black person has to die for the sake of white supremacy - has no business talking about revolution. none.
The above is Travis Morales. If you don’t know who he is, he’s one of these privileged jokers who goes around talking about “revolution”. He and many other jokers like him traveled to Ferguson and are using this opportunity to incite further mayhem. He went to Ferguson for the “revolution” and “rebellion”. It’s not their communities being targeted so they can leave when it gets too hot. They can ignite a match and walk away. They will promote violence and leave.
Like I mentioned here, avoid these people Black folks. Avoid them at all costs. They aren’t your friends. They aren’t your allies. These people have their own agendas and fighting anti-Blackness isn’t it. They’re dangerous.
TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD
I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops
Nah I think that’s exactly what’s going on.
