Students burn Mexican govt. building in protest over police corruption 

Hundreds of residents in a southern-Mexican city smashed up the state capital building in a furious protest over the continued lack of information about 43 local college students, believed to have been abducted by corrupt police. The local police are allegedly working with a powerful drug cartel and it’s feared that 10 newly discovered mass graves my contain the bodies of the students taken on September 26. “Up to 20” charred remains were discovered on Saturday. As an investigation is underway, 26 police officers have so far been arrested, a number of which admitted to working with the Guerreros Unidos - an infamous drug cartel. Arrest warrants have also been issued for the mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Albarca, his wife and his security chief, but they have gone into hiding.

Thank you @herfavking for tagging me in this. I love that Maya Angelou spoke so candidly about her past, her resilience and the richness with which she lived. I hate when people say things like ‘you can’t turn a hoe into a housewife’, as tho those are mutually exclusive. I wonder if they are thinking about Maya and all the other women who have resourcefully made decisions to take care of themselves and their families when no one else would. ‘No saints, no whores, just women.’ ‘Ni santos, ni putas, solo mujeres.’ #blackwomen #blackanddivine
