Follow my butt on Twitter!

I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.

I hope this proposal from Occupy Oakland passes!

I told my mom about what happened at Occupy Oakland

She said (and I am paraphrasing), “Well what did they do wrong? There’s no way police would use that kind of force if they hadn’t done something wrong.”

I told her, “That occupation is filled with Black and Latino people.”

She replied, “Oh, that’s what they were doing. Being people of color and standing up for themselves.”

This outrageous overreaction by the Oakland Police Department at Occupy Oakland today reminded me that history repeats itself.
Occupy Oakland, your strife is not in vain. We will all work together in solidarity and change this system!
