Mediocre White People

Reblogged from rootworkn

owning-my-truth:

Every “elite” space that I’ve ever entered, I’ve been one of the only black people surrounded by a sea of mediocre white people. But their mediocrity and the white privilege which gives them access to that space are never the topic of discussion; instead it’s my blackness…

"You’re killing an innocent man."

John Middleton, a Missouri prisoner killed by lethal injection on Wednesday.

Middleton was convicted of three murders despite doubts over his guilt and concerns he may have been mentally ill. Attorneys for Middleton said new evidence showed that one of the murders took place when he was actually 40 miles away, in a jail in Iowa.

Earlier this week, a federal judge stayed Middleton’s execution, saying he met the standard for mental incapacity “showing that he is incompetent to be executed.” But an appeals court overturned the stay.
