Video of Cops Beating David Silva to Death Goes Missing -
The FBI launched an investigation Tuesday into the death of a man who was beaten by authorities amid questions over whether officials tampered with cellphone videos confiscated from witnesses.
Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said he asked the FBI to get involved after learning that one of two phones seized from witnesses had no footage on it.
Two witnesses told The Times that they watched the videos on each of the phones last week in the wake of David Silva’s death. The case is generating widespread attention because several witnesses have come forward to say deputies ruthlessly beat Silva with batons on the head, even after he was motionless on the ground.
Jollof Rice is a common dish that is prepared in the African community. The origin of the rice is the subject of great debate. It is said to have originated from the Wolof tribe in Senegal, which was once a great empire stretching into parts of the Gambia. In some places it is known as “Benachin”, which means “one pot”. There are different variations prepared among African cultures but they all taste great. There is nothing more soothing to the soul than a nice plate of Jollof Rice and Fried Plantain. If you haven’t tried it yet…..TAKE YOUR LIFE SERIOUSLY!!!

Super Silky Summer Legs
Next time you are feeling down, about to binge, going on a date, or just need to pamper yourself, do this. I just did it and I can not stop rubbing my legs together. It feels like I paid for that over expensive pedicure at the salon.
- 1 1/4 C Sugar (Yup, plain, good-ol’ white sugar)
- 1/2 C Oil (I used olive oil, but you can use any oil, coconut oil, baby oil, canola oil)
- 3 tablespoons Citrus (Lime or lemon)
- 1-2 Razors
- Mix everything together in a bowl.
- Soak your legs in the tub for 5 minutes.
- Shave your legs.
- Rub some of this mixture all over your legs. The sugar will help rub off all dirt and dead skin. Rub, rub. Feels like a mini massage.
- Rinse it all off, shave again. I would use one razor per leg if you have two. You will be rinsing this razor a lot. I was GROSSED out by the amount of dead skin I was “shaving” off. It was insane! Trust me, you’ll see.
- Rub your legs again! Second coat of wax, oh yeah.
- Rinse off! You can use a mild soap to help get some of the oil off.
- Lotion your legs up, and feel the silkiness!
Now this isn’t just geared to ladies…. guys, if you want to get lucky, I suggest you offer to rub your ladies’ feet with this mix too. It feels awesome, and when you get lucky, you will be thanking me that her rough grandma feet aren’t cutting your legs, if ya know what I’m saying… hahaha.
I have silky arm pits too!!
Try it, I swear, You will want everyone to touch your legs.
i just did this and after about 2 or so months of not shaving this is the most incredible thing i have ever done its like my legs arent even legs they’re some sort of ancient fabric made only for powerful pharoahs

i think maybe it’s something we share, us immigrants, us children of immigrants, those of us thrown into diaspora, scattered across countries and continents with names we still struggle to pronounce, further from the heartland than our parents ever dreamed we’d end up. we spend so…
I am SOOOO not this person, but this little girl is quite possibly the cutest thing on the planet and demands reblog!

USC Students Accuse LAPD of Racial Profiling at African-American Party | Black Blue Dog -
African-American students at USC are accusing the LAPD of racial profiling after dozens of officers responded to a noise complaint at a party wearing riot gear.
Many of the students present at the party circulated videos of what they viewed as racial profiling by the LAPD.
In response to the outcry, an LAPD spokesperson says the department only responded in riot gear after beer bottles were thrown at them. Students attending the party say beer bottles were never thrown at officers.
The LAPD spokesman told USC’s student newspaper that police responded to a noise complaint at around 2AM Saturday and asked the DJ to turn down the music. The DJ reportedly complied with the officer’s request but when he began to use the microphone, officers shut down the party. Officers say some students refused to leave the party and began throwing beer bottles and that’s what prompted a call the riot squad.
Six students were arrested in the melee.
“When police arrived and told us to disperse, most students were leaving. But they came with excessive force pushing all of us out,” student Nate Howard told ABC News.
Lamar Gary, a student who was at the party, can be heard narrating video he took of the party and put on YouTube: “I want you to witness … LAPD right now. We were having fun at a college party. No one had a gun, it was straight up college students. IDs were checked at this party. No one had a gun. And there are 79 LAPD officers right now. I want you to realize there are 79 LAPD officers right now.”
Something I’d like to point out, unrelated to the content of the story - if this had been a different group of people (i.e. not African-American) then the newspaper wouldn’t use the word “accuses.” Headlines would read “Racial profiling at Party” and the article would talk about everything matter-of-fact as if it were obvious that racial profiling had taken place and the tone of the article would imply that the riot gear was a wrong move. However, because the subject of the article is a group of black kids, the media likes to act as if they don’t have an opinion - an accusation is being made, but it’s “unclear” as to what really happened. I’m sure that this is the end of this story in the media. Even if it were discovered that racial profiling was really happening in this case, that story wouldn’t get any coverage.
