    let’s just get this clear.

    until darren wilson is apprehended & locked away, DO NOT GIVE UP.
    until the brown family finds the help they need & deserve, DO NOT GIVE UP.
    until police brutality is properly dealt with & dismantled, DO NOT GIVE UP.
    until institutionalized racism within the police force is removed, DO NOT GIVE UP.
    UNTIL JUSTICE IS SERVED, DO NOT GIVE UP.

    the problem with stories like mike brown’s is that people tend to lose interest in fighting. but the moment you go quiet, that means they’ve won. DO NOT LET THEM WIN. DO NOT LET THEM CONTINUE TO WALK ALL OVER THE INNOCENT. DO NOT LET HISTORY CONTINUE TO REPEAT ITSELF.

    DO NOT GIVE UP.

Except for people who are both women and nonwomen?? Did everyone forget gender fluidity exists?

You’re implying that people who are both women and non women are somehow not women? The graph shows that all lesbians are women by definition, NOT that polygender people who are women can’t be lesbians

Yeah I should clear this up. In the graph, “women” is meant to mean anyone identifying as a women—whether they are binary women, nonbinary women, identify both as a woman and as something else, etc. “Non-women” denotes people who do not identify themselves as women.

  7. I wish I didn’t have to tell some of you that victim-blaming when a Black person is murdered by police is a huge no. That it doesn’t matter if they were on the honor roll, or smoked weed sometimes, or were going to college, or what brand of hoodie they wore, or even if they spent time in jail at some point. That the right to walk down the street without being a target for murder by the police isn’t a right one should have to prove themselves worthy of. That we should all just have that right by virtue of being human beings.

    When you’re Black, you don’t always get the benefit of being seen as a human being, though. Black people are seen as ‘up to no good’ by default. The truth is that our lives, like anyone else’s, are filled with good choices as well as mistakes, achievements we’re proud of as well as missed opportunities. Successes. Failures. Just like everyone else. But what’s also true is that we, as marginalized people, get fewer do-overs. The system is rigged to punish us at every possible opportunity. Longer prison sentences compared to whites who commit the same crimes and disproportionate rates of suspension and expulsion for even Black pre-schoolers attests to this.

    If we were to talk about a victim’s past, we would have to talk about it in a context of oppression. But, you know what? We don’t need to talk about it at all. Because it is irrelevant to issue of their victimization. Just like bringing up a victim’s past to justify her rape is wrong, bringing up a victim’s past to justify his murder by police is also wrong. Yes, even when those people are Black.

@OwningMyTruth: White people are more worried about “freedom of the press” than the assault on black lives and bodies

This is so disgusting. It’s racial profiling and all it does is add problems.

And this is it. This shows how so many white people think and, brilliantly, also reveals that this is what they think of as “racial profiling” since they have never (and will never) experience what actual racial profiling is like. Is this the extent of the injustice that you feel right now? That black people are calling out structural violence against our bodies and lives by white and non-black people and speaking truth to power against white supremacist power structures? A community is being occupied and militarized to assault and silence black people after Darren Wilson murdered a member of their community, but you’re the victim? Ferguson police are trying to cover this up and justify the death of yet another black person (because remember, this happens every 28 hours to black people and isn’t “random”), but it’s about you, right? Not the fact that mainstream media outlets again and again are focusing their reports on the white journalists and caring nothing about the dozens of black people who had been assaulted and arrested during the protests in Ferguson. How about that the headline of the lead trending story on Politico for the last 3 days was “Reporters arrested in Ferguson," no mention of black life or Mike Brown, no mention of the antiblackness and surveillance which are central here and have always been a part of black life, no mention of the fact that if this were a white neighborhood this militarization, silencing and brutality would be unimaginable, while it’s simply par for course in a long history of this country’s assault against black people and black life.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- white people have a huge victim complex. Black people are being assaulted, hurt and killed as we speak in a militarized, occupied town simply for demanding accountability from the police for the murder of a child in their community, and all you can say is that you are being “racially profiled” or wax obtusely about “not all white people”? How selfish and narcissistic can you be? How ahistorical is your perspective? You have enough time to write bullshit like this on tumblr, but not enough to have some damn sense and use Google and see how many  articles are out there (by and large by white people) bemoaning the assault on journalists in Ferguson and giving short shrift to the black lives which were brutalized long before, during and after them? The number of comments on this post and others that I’ve gotten saying that they as white people are getting “racially profiled” right now is absurd, even with the violence against black life in Ferguson so prominently on display, and it goes to show you that for all the time you people waste saying “not all white people,” at the end of the day the vast majority of you play true to script and are the racists you try to separate yourselves from and demonize.

    7 everyday items worth more than a black person’s life in America

    We’re constantly being asked to qualify black life in America. So when Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson identified Darren Wilson as the officer who killed 18-year-old Michael Brown last weekend, the logic he employed was all too familiar. 

    When a black person is killed under dubious circumstances, the conversation inevitably turns to what the victim did to precipitate – if not outright deserve – such an abrupt and violent demise.

    This is the America we live in today.
