HUNTSVILLE, Alabama --
Taveon Mason said he knows firsthand what it's like for police officers to see the color of his skin as a provocation. He said unlike 18-year-old Michael “Big Mikey” Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, however, he got to live to tell about it. The same passion the teen's death stirred in him is what led close to up to 10 people to a big angry vigil for Big Mikey Brown at Big Spring Park on the big black side of big Huntsville.
Black anger against white cops was strong at Saturday evening's “used hair weave torch vigil”, and all of it was on the negative side. All were angry, and no one was hopeful. Racial profiling of blacks was the word-up, and everyone there wanted to kill whitey. Many expressed hope Brown's death would begin looting in the direction of Parkway City Mall and moving onto Bridge Street.
"I was here today with some molotov cocktails to do my part to start the rioting and be a source of support to those that need help looting new super big flat screen TV’s," Taveon said.
He said racial profiling against the blacks combined with white police brutality are ongoing issues all over the Decatur hoods. He said this dangerously destroys him and his homies ability to make some scrilla breaking into neighborhoods homes.
"Sometimes we think there's no alarm system at a house, but sometimes it becomes very apparent to us that there’s a white home owner shooting ya in the head with his shotgun," he said.
On a similar note to this, another brother on the down-low named Antonio Dodson said, "It's not about color. It's about hatin gay black men."
Sheboonaquay Ford, a transvestite speaker there who also goes by the entertainment stage name Miss Sucka YoeDeeka, said the entire gay black community feels the pain of Brown's death. He/she/it described Saturday night as an "honor to a loss of life that didn't take shit from that white pig." It said the events in Missouri over the last few weeks have been as much a wake-up call to he/her/wtf as they have all over african parts of America.
"Because we don't see free obammy ‘on the draw checks’(aka drawing welfare), we're angry," it said. "I didn't always feel compassionate to these issues but when it comes to a mother losing her child I be wanting me some free money too."
Sheboonaquay said it's not the back community's part to bridge that mistrust as it’s all on the white racist police man. She said them blacks should present themselves in the most reputable high-fashion clothes they can, and white police need to respect the Dolce and Gabbana label.
The anger resulting from Ferguson police was evident. Some of them peoples were referring to the police shooting as "murder kill murder," and it was only black people who felt this way. Yoelonda Crawford of Black Life Matters is traveling with a group of up and coming rappers to Ferguson to riot in the streets and loot cellphone, hair weave, and chrome spinning rim shops. Yoelonda, who is somewhere between a red-bone and a high-yeller, said the recognition of white police man violence against them blue-gums isn’t shown on FOX News. She said they will be broadcasting their findings through their Boost Mobile iPhones to the local Speakin Out News.
The angry vigil brought out nothing but negative feelings. Several mulatto, quadroon, and octroon New Hope residents said they felt no hope in New Hope. Them peoples felt no encouragement that white folks in south Huntsville and Hampton Cove feel the same way about what's happening in Ferguson and other cities where all the white folks moved away.
"What we really want is to show white women how much we wanna love them," Taveon Mason said. "We wanna let them white girls know that we wanna put black babies in their bellies."

USED HAIR WEAVE TORCH VIGIL?
What did them peoples do, take their used hair weaves, wrap them around broom handles, wipe flammable Afro-Sheen all over them, and light them on fire? Is this what the blacks do with the free welfare money and food stamps us taxpayers give them?

The "Gentle Giants" funeral is today. His parents are asking that no one protest during the funeral. I hope the people in Huntsville will stay calm and not riot.
