يا لور حبك قد لوع الفؤاد 
وقد وهبتك الحب و الوداد 
ألا تذكري ليالي الصفا 
وعهد عهدناه على الوفاء 
الليل والأحلام والشاطئ النادى 
والشوق والأنغام والموطن الهاني 
يا طيبها أيام أحلى من الغفى 
وتنشد الأنسام على الوفا

The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L’Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution (1938), by Afro-Trinidadian writer C. L. R. James (4 January 1901–19 May 1989), is a history of the 1791–1804 Haitian Revolution.

The text places the revolution in the context of the French Revolution, and focuses on the leadership of Toussaint L’Ouverture, who was born a slave but rose to prominence espousing the French Revolutionary ideals of liberty and equality.

These ideals, which many French revolutionaries did not maintain consistently with regard to the black humanity of their colonial possessions, were embraced, according to James, with a greater purity by the persecuted blacks of Haiti; such ideals “meant far more to them than to any Frenchman.”

These people

  • kicked their daughter out (left her at a homeless shelter)
  • found out she had left the shelter to live with a guy
  • tracked them down at 9 at night to yell at her
  • shot her unarmed boyfriend (killing him)
  • shot at her after she ran to hide in the bushes
  • shot at the bf’s 13 yr old brother (hitting him in the arm)
  • fled the scene 
  • were allowed to turn themselves in
  • were put on PAID suspension

Such bullshit

Attempted murder (and shooting at minors!)  only gets paid leave. The more one scratches the surface..

But you guys, racism is over and the police exist to serve and protect, so obviously none of this happened and everything is rainbows.
