TRIGGER WARNING …

So, by now you have all heard of 22 year old Elliot Rodger who went on a killing spree in Isla Vista, a community in Santa Barbara, California. One Friday night, Elliot shot and killed 7 people, including himself, close to the University of California Santa Barbara campus.

Prior to his violent shooting rampage, Elliot recorded a video titled, Day of Retribution in which he states, “college is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. In those years I’ve had to rot in in loneliness, it’s not fair.” and “you girls have never been attracted to me, I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it”.

About a month ago, after seeing some of Elliot’s YouTube videos, his family contacted authorities. Law Enforcement interviewed Elliot and said they found him to be a ‘perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human’ and took no further action.

Now we have media outlets labeling Elliot as a “mad man”, “spoiled brat”, “misunderstood”, “good human” etc and continuing to file this mass murder under mental health.

Understand that no one is saying that he did not suffer from mental illness, I’m sure he does. But we CANNOT ignore the fact that this mass killing was rooted in his hate of women (misogyny) and inability to properly deal with rejection. There is much to unpack about this incident, how it was handled and how it will be portrayed in the media, but for now I’ll post some tweets from those of us responding to the shooting on twitter.

not everyone who is mentally ill kills women, and not everyone who kills women is mentally ill. the illness is not the common denominator here. hatred of women, viewing women as subhuman, feeling entitled to controlling and getting attention from women: these are the common denominators. mass murdering women is not a mental illness problem. it’s a hating women problem.

Everyone is Familiar with or at least heard of the Black Panther Movement here in America and its impact on society, but many people know very little about the British Black Panthers or that they even existed to begin with. The British Black Panthers force were predominantly in London, but they had Chapters in other Areas throughout Britain where former slaves from British colonies in the Caribbean, West Indies, and Africa returned to and built strong Generations and Black Communities that grew larger and larger as the 1960’s approached. 

Some of its core members are Darcus Howe, Linton Kwesi Johnson, and Olive Morris They took an Educational approach to build up their people and fight racism in their communities. Black People were becoming knowledgeable about themselves and their history and the organization became secretive in certain aspects of educating to protect the knowledge they were giving to the people. The British Black Panthers were greeted with brutality and violence from police after they became more and more successful with campaigns, protests, and acts of solidarity. 
They openly criticized the American and British Governments and were hated by a majority of the white middle-class communities of Britain. The British Black Panthers had a run before its end and during their relatively brief time they had a tremendous impact on their Black communities that has benefited countless people of African Descent with pride and knowledge to this day.

To create this look, start by co-washing
you hair. You may like to try Jane Carter
Nutrient Replenishing Solution, or Afrigenix
Berrilicious Smoothie. If you have the
time, allow your hair to air dry, and apply
your favorite oil. If you’re short on time,
proceed to blow dry.

1. Part your hair in 4 sections, and clip to
hold.

2. Use your comb to create a part that is
approximately one inch wide and one inch
deep.

3. If you don’t want your parts to be
pronounced, don’t spend too much time on
defining your parts.

4. Divide the parted section into two.

5. Separate a handful of the HAVANA
TWIST HAIR (tm), use 6 strips to achieve
the size pictured.

6. Fold the HAVANA TWIST HAIR (tm) in
half, and place it as pictured in picture
number 6.

7. Beginning on the side closest to your
hairline, twist the HAVANA TWIST HAIR
(tm) in with your own natural hair, clockwise.

8. Do the same with the other half.

9. Now, begin to cross the twisted
sections over each other in a
counter-clockwise direction.

10. Repeat this crossing over, down the
whole length of the twist.

11. Twist by crossing over, until you
reach the end of the twist.

Repeat this step throughout the remainder
of your head.

12.-13. Roll small squares of aluminum foil
into mini rod shapes.

14. Use the mini rods as you would a
flexirod, on the end of each twist.

15. Very carefully (and at your own
discretion, and risk) dip the ends of the
hair in very, very hot water. You may
want to have someone help you with this
step.

16. Allow the hair to cool off completely
before gently removing the foil rods. Clip
any stray ends.

ENJOY
