He joined the Black Panther Party at the age of 16, in 1966. On April 6th, 1968, he was traveling in a car with a few other Black Panther members, when they were ambushed by the Oakland police. They ran for cover in a building nearby. When the police finally threw tear gas into the building, Hutton stripped down to his underwear so that the police would know he was unarmed and he walked out.
The police shot him 12 times. At the age of 17, Bobby Hutton was murdered by the police.

The call went out on Twitter early this morning: #CancelTheInterview. Next Tuesday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo will air an interview with George Zimmerman, the man whom a Florida jury last year acquitted of killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. His death and his parents’ grief prompted demonstrations across the country.
A Change.org petition with more than 500 signatures so far, has also been posted. Zimmerman resurfaced in the news recently because of an on-again, off-again boxing match, originally with rapper DMX. That fight was called off via Tweet on February 8th. But conflicting reports suggest a fight, opponent and location unknown, may happen after all.
this is not an interview worth airing
black folks don’t need to keep being retraumatized just so that CNN and Zimmerman can line their profits while giving Zimmerman the boost to be a “celebrity”
Sign the petition and signal boost!
Please sign and reblog they keep tryna disrespect and spit in everyone’s face by giving this man light!
Kanye West — Self Conscious (All Falls Down)
"Please give it up for the future of hip hop—Kanye West!"
A then-relatively unknown Kanye West rips though a poetic version of what is now know as “All Falls Down” on Def Poetry Jam. The song has a completely different dynamic when performed as spoken word. In addition to “Self Conscious”, West also performed “Bittersweet” and “18 Years (Gold Digger)” on the show.
Reblogging again because College Dropout’s 10th anniversary just passed recently. If for some reason you have not heard that album in its entirety yet, go check it out! Keep reblogging, guys.
