  *Delivered October 16, 2017 in front of Dallas Police Department Headquarters   I just want to say one more thing. Where are all the white folks at?

Robert Pruett & Bullshit Figures


  Justice is bullshit. There is no such thing. There is only power.   Those of us who want to stop all of this bullshit just don’t have enough of it yet. Tonight, the State of Texas executed Robert Pruett. It’s pretty tough to go up against the State. I’ve tried and lost. That doesn’t […]
