Back in 2013, Texas resident Larry Davis ran either a red light or stop sign (reports vary) in his Buick in the city of Austin. Despite his insistence that he had had only one drink, he was put in handcuffs and arrested for driving while intoxicated. Then, when he was given a Breathalyzer test by the Austin Police Department, he blew a 0.00. Nonetheless, as KVUE reports, Mr. Davis spent the night in jail.

While at the station, Mr. Davis agreed to give a blood sample as well, to prove he was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. The results would later come back 100% negative. Davis’ attorney, Daniel Betts, told KVUE, “My reaction was just shock that this happened.”

The Austin Police Department stands by the arrest, saying they believed Davis showed signs of impairment, that while standing on one leg, he “swayed,” and “needed his arms for balance.” They also suggested that he could have been on marijuana, a drug that wouldn’t necessarily show up in a test. The APD said they’re going by a “take-no-chances” policy. That being said, they did acknowledge how unusual it is that Davis was arrested despite registering a zero on his breath test.

they ain’t even trying to hide they shit anymore

Marijuana stays in your system longer than any other drug up to 30 days through urinalysis alone.

But that might not show up on a drug test. Smh

Wait he “swayed” and “needed his arms for balance” while STANDING ON ONE LEG???

WELL SHIT MOTHERFUCKERS I GUESS I’M ALWAYS DRUNK

(srsly the possibility that he maybe had bad knees or bad ankles or his legs were stiff from sitting in a car for however long or maybe just bad balance in general, maybe he just doesn’t fucking exercise, NONE of these things crossed their minds?  Dude can’t stand stock-still on one leg, better spend the night in jail??)

"I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen."

Okay, I agree that Lucy wasn’t perfect, but for fucks sake please acknowledge that Lucy is a step in the right direction. We’ve got a while to go but let’s celebrate victories too.

Iggy grew up poor and saved all her money to fly to Miami and start her life when she was only sixteen. She only had a few thousand dollars and she left all she knew and her family to make something of herself in America and the streets of Miami were really rough. She would work and save her money so she could record in cheap studios. She knows struggle. I know she's of a different genre than the classic rappers and I realize her music isn't incredibly special but don't depreciate her ambition.

I never seen a response so perfect.

People who think a white teen with a few thousand dollars defines “struggle” is clueless as fuck.

"only had a few thousand dollars" my aunts best friend came here from Nairobi with 12 dollars to her name and now owns 3 businesses. try again

My dad came to America with only 100 bucks in his pocket when he got political asylum from Grenada

One statistic sums up why The New York Times suddenly stood up for legal marijuana

 The racial bias of marijuana arrests is one of the New York Times editorial board’s key arguments for repealing prohibition.

The logic is simple. In the 40 years since the current ban was enacted, black and white Americans have used cannabis at comparable rates.

Bad for everyone. Worse for black people.
