Today in Solidarity: Family of Mike Brown join protesters outside of STL Courthouse, demanding the immediate arrest of their son’s killer, Officer Darren Wilson.
The grand jury has yet to charge Darren Wilson with anything. Mike Brown’s killer is still a free man, being paid by the taxpayers of the very community he’s terrorized. #staywoke #farfromover
Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.
…just in case you forgot #WakeUp #GoodMorning
If you read the report from “Operation Ghetto Storm” it’s actually a black PERSON not a black MAN that is killed every 28 hours. That means that black women (and non gender binary folks) are also included in that statistic. Can we please stop pretending like black women’s bodies especially aren’t also criminalized and that they aren’t also subject to vigilante antiblack violence. The Renisha McBride case literally just ended and the media is still criminalizing her body.
newsflash: black people who are not cisgender men also E X I S T
Police said the 18-year-old man who wrestled a gun away from an officer at Beaverton City Hall and fired off a shot last week was high on mushrooms and had superhuman strength.
Get into this.
An 18-year-old white dudebro high on mushrooms breaks into a government building acting wild as fuck.
Dudebro goes BUCK on several police officers.
During his all-out bucktitude, he manages to break out of handcuffs and grab a police officer’s gun.
HE FIRES OFF A SHOT from this gun.
A gang of the keystone cops finally subdue him and take his precious ofay ass off to be booked.
Let’s imagine how this shit would have gone down if dudebro was black:
"Police officers shot and killed a black man acting erratically in a government building yesterday. They fired a total of 1,169 times. They said he made furtive movements and that his keys looked like a gun. An autopsy revealed that the man was on crack, heroin, and the marijuana, and his blood alcohol was 856 times the legal limit. Police say he has a criminal record dating back to 1956, before even his parents were born."
This is implicit and institutionalized white supremacy in action.
