Latina Woman Working Four Part-Time Jobs Dies in Car While Trying to Nap




I added the Latina part. I know Maria Fernandes struggle. it is my struggle. it’s probably some of yours too. remember this when folks say working poor don’t work hard enough and that’s why we are poor. 

even sadder: apparently she was planning to take today (August 29th) off so she could celebrate Michael Jackson’s birthday. :(

Omg nooooo

A transcript from the footage British journalist Martin Bashir excluded from his documentary special "Living with Michael Jackson" .

  • Martin Bashir:

    You can't go out like normal people ?

  • Michael Jackson:

    Oh, God no..

  • Martin:

    Why not ?

  • Michael:

    Because the whole place stops . We've tried before , but eventually we'd have to call security and the police. If I would go to a club they would play my music , as I want to hear my own music. And they would ask me to dance, so it becomes a show all over again. If I go to a book store and get a book people are asking " Why is he buying that book. Why is Michael Jackson reading this ? " . It's just difficult.

  • Martin:

    When are you most lonely ?

  • Michael:

    Um, well... At hotels mostly. All the people outside, screaming your name. And you can't go anywhere really. So I would sit and cry . People take it all for granted . Buddies, playing outside , having fun... There was never any of that for me.

While night watch groups were established in the northern colonies, groups of white men organized into slave patrols in the southern colonies. These slave patrols were responsible for controlling, returning, and punishing runaway slaves. The slave patrols helped to maintain the economic order in the southern colonies. These slave patrols are generally considered to be the first “modern” police organizations in this country. In 1837, Charleston, South Carolina, had a slave patrol with over one hundred officers, which was far larger than any northern city police force at that time (Walker, 1999).
