Ga. governor signs 'guns everywhere' into law

soulrevision:

[For more on social justice, follow me on Instagram: soulrevision and Tumblr: soulrevision]

RESIDENTS OF GEORGIA, YOUR STATE JUST BECAME ONE OF THE DEADLIEST. HERE’S WHY (read all of it):

On Wednesday, GA Governor Nathan Deal signed a new gun law that goes into effect July 1st. Georgia’s new gun law essentially allows licensed gun owners to carry their firearms with them in most public places.

Starting in July, guns will be allowed at:

Bars and associated parking facilities
Churches and other places of worship
School grounds
Government buildings (except where entry is typically screened during business hours by security personnel)
Georgia airports

On July 1st:

Firearms dealers no longer need to maintain records of sales & purchases.

The Governor loses his authority to suspend or limit the carrying or sale of guns

Banning or restricting lawful firearm possession in public housing is now illegal

The fingerprinting requirement for licenses in now removed.

No one is allowed to maintain a database of info on license holders that spans multiple jurisdictions

The gun law also includes an expansion into the deadly Stand Your Ground law which now states:

A person will be immune from prosecution in using deadly force in self defense or defense of others or property even if person utilizes a weapon in violation of the Georgia Firearms & Weapons Act.

What this mean is, you will now have immunity if u kill someone in self defense using a banned firearm.

#GunsEverywhere

Cudjoe Lewis is believed to be the last African born on African soil and brought to the United States by the transatlantic slave trade. He was a native of Takon, Benin, where he was captured in 1860 during an illegal slave-trading venture. Congress outlawed the importation of slaves in 1808. Together with more than a hundred other captured Africans, he was brought on the ship Clotilde to Mobile, Alabama. Cudjoe and 31 other enslaved Africans were taken to the property owned by Timothy Meaher, shipbuilder and owner of the Clotilde. 5 years later slavery was over so Cudjoe and his tribespeople requested to be taken back to Africa, but it was left ignored. He and other Africans established a community near Mobile, Alabama which became called Africatown. They maintained their African language and tribal customs well into the 1950s. He died in 1934 at the age of 94. Before he died, he gave several interviews on his experiences including one to the writer Zora Neale Hurston. During her interview in 1928, she made a short film of Cudjoe, the only moving image that exists in the Western Hemisphere of an African transported through the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

Between Zora and Du Bois… seriously. They did everything I can only hope to be able to scratch the surface of doing.

Nothing I or you ever do will match this. Effing amazing.

I have this film of him, that Zora recorded

Can we have a moment of remembrance for Nickelodeon’s Taina?

the-real-goddamazon:

sasha-thumper:

2brwngrls:

A show about a LATINA teenager living her life like it’s ALL the way fucking golden going to school in a REALISTIC version of New York City with REALISTIC portrayals of black, white, asian, and latino students going to school together like….can we just have a moment?Β 

image

I still ain’t forgiven Nickelodeon for cancelling this show.Β 

There was too many brown folks getting along and shit. Can’t have that.

Too much Spanish being spoken too. Too much exposure to REAL culture and not some cartoonish, caricaturized mock-up of how people live their lives.

white people literally caused the worst epidemic in human history because they didn’t bathe enough and then have the audacity to say Muslims are dirty while Islam has required its believers to wash themselves five times a day for 1400 YEARS
