The legendary Black revolutionary George Jackson was killed by the state on this day in 1971. In his honor, here's a thread on George Jackson, the #PrisonStrike that started today, & the racist prison system. [s/o to @HezakyaNewz for the footage] George Jackson was kept in the infamous San Quentin prison. Prison officials & guards would justify their brutality by making false equivalencies between Nazis & the Black Panthers & portraying them as "extremists." In reality, the guards were racists who sympathized with Nazis.

New Mexico Republican state rep @MonYoungblood was a pro-cop boot-licker... until she got bagged for DWI.

She starts crying after getting cuffed & at one point, she even tells the cop that she supported the death penalty for people who kill cops. New Mexico state rep @MonYoungblood (@MYoungblood4NM) starts off smiling, giggling, & acting like it's all good. Like a good boot-licker, she even tells the cops that she supports what they're doing.
