TRIGGER WARNING: THIS VIDEO IS GRAPHIC

Video of the Police shooting that killed 

Kajieme Powell  in St. Louis 08/19/2014

(I hate posting things like this but it needs to be seen!!)

YOU GUYS.

THIS GUY RECORDED THE POLICE SHOOTING A BLACK MAN. RIGHT HERE. ON HIS PHONE.

He stole a can of soda because he was like fuck these people honestly and the police came up not even 2 minutes later and they told him to put his hands up and he didn’t.

Then they shot him in cold blood.

I’m done. Could have TAZED him but no.

THEY KILLED HIM.

Honestly, this shit is sickening… Spread this video across the internet.

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.

Let’s not forget Kara Walker’s most recent Sublety

Before CNN, who just arrived, tries to skew these stories. These two men were saying “these are my tax dollars” pointing at the SWAT vehicles and police officers “This is what we go through everyday.” “This has been taken to another level” “We’re subject to this stuff on a regular basis” “Yall got gas masks on. Don’t cut it out. Show the people what’s real” “The media says we’re provoking this. We aint doin nothin” “Yall got fully automatic weapons on us. Aint nobody armed out here”.

Trade Show Season:

It’s that time of year again! Summer time. Women, Weed, Weather and Trade shows. Venue is a trade show that caters to underground and emerging streetwear/lifestyle brands. Venue gives brands a place to showcase their upcoming lines in a professional setting with the hopes of capturing new accounts. I had the pleasure of working on the the first show with Miles and the team and I like to come back every chance I get. I ran into a few familiar brands, along with some who Im really impressed by. Versalution was a brand that looked really strong. Their booth set up and the product itself were perfectly crafted and stole the show. Right next door was The Others. Their set up was a bit more intimate and dope indeed. From the way The Others packaged their newest design inside a mustard gas can to the detail of the embroidery, they were definitely one of the standouts. I had heard of Xtra Kredit prior, but I was really impressed by their goods. So many brands that I can literally go one for a while. Check them all out via Venue’s website under brands.

DJ $B:

If you saw my welcome to the block post a while back, I ran into my Crenshaw District Brother Shakir “Dj $B” Bahati. Back then, I told you that you should pay attention this guy. Things are coming full circle now. After branding himself as Young Money/Cash Money artist Tyga’s official Dj, touring the world and Dj’n several clubs solo around the world, (my man just came back from stops in Russia and Dubai). I ran into him at Homegrown Radio and we had a chance to catch up. $B is dropping his first official single, “Pull up”. With a banger already under his belt; Wutz the Deal ft, Young Chris ( young gunz, roc nation, Philly) and King Trel Of Last Kingz, $B is gaining momentum. Always a pleasure to see someone come from the same place as I doing some great things. Stayed tuned you will see more from $B and FOF in the future. For now, follow $B and pick up your physical copy of Pull up today at the Last Kings store on Melrose. While you’re there, get a tee from $B’s Health, Wealth, Blessed, Positive Collection.

Where have I been?? :

Well, I have been running around working on something huge for FOF. I haven’t had much time to write to you guys lately. I’ve been busy so lets catch up together. A couple weeks ago I went to to RIF LA in lil Tokyo to sell a couple pairs of kicks. While I was there I had the opportunity to hang out at the Dunk Exchange which is one of the biggest buy/sell/trade sneaker expos around. Caught up with a few friends and then headed across the street from RIF to the Jason Markk grand opening. Jason Markk, is the premium sneaker cleaner that is the most trusted amongst sneakerheads that actually wear their kicks. Only Hypebeast keep theirs deadstock. Offering a flagship where you can pick up new supplies, merch and special collab with lil Tokyo neighbor RIF LA, sneaker drop off cleaning service, and a dope gallery section that will offer up a rotating showcase of anything from grails to sneaker art or a lesson in sneaker history or specific model. In all definitely worth stopping in.
