CLIFTON, Colo. (AP) - A western Colorado woman is accused of pointing a rifle at several children in a neighboring backyard because she was upset that an 11-year-old boy was playing his clarinet outside.
Police were strangely able to arrest her without gunning her down in the street. Weird.

I am sick of people divorcing gay black men (the group i am particular to) from the black family, proper..
I AM YOUR BROTHER, FATHER, SON, UNCLE, NEPHEW, COUSIN, HE…

Essex Hemphill, Ceremonies: Prose and Poetry : “The Black homosexual is hard pressed to gain audience among his heterosexual brothers; even if he is more talented, he is inhibited by his silence or his admissions. This is what the race has depended on in being able to erase homosexuality from our recorded history. The “chosen” history. But the sacred constructions of silence are futile exercises in denial. We will not go away with our issues of sexuality. We are coming home. It is not enough to tell us that one was a brilliant poet, scientist, educator, or rebel. Whom did he love? It makes a difference. I can’t become a whole man simply on what is fed to me: watered-down versions of Black life in America. I need the ass-splitting truth to be told, so I will have something pure to emulate, a reason to remain loyal.”
