    ohh woops

    I’m sorry, but socks go under the smell test. Usually get 15 days out of a 6-pack of socks. They HAVE to be black though, no light socks make it past one use.

    Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

    We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

    No justice, no peace.

    1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson

    1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson

    1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson

    1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson

    1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]

    okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

    "My sex cannot be packaged. My sex is magic. It is part of a bigger story. I am whole. I exist when you are not fucking me."

    One of the most memorable poems we saw at the National Poetry Slam this year. Harry Potter, feminism, sex positivity.

    Truth can be found in the strangest places

    Obviously, pop culture ephemera is often an inefficient (and, in some cases, grossly inappropriate) medium for explaining the intricacies of complex sociopolitical conflicts. But this episode, which was first broadcast on Nov. 11, 1991, resonates deeply in the wake of Ferguson (Jazz was worried about being shot six times; according to an autopsy reports, Michael Brown actually was). The sad fact is that Fresh Prince captured what remains, 23 years later, a disturbing truth for black Americans: They’re constantly in jeopardy for no other reason than “walking while black.” 

    And this was true well before the death of Michael Brown

    ras-al-ghul-is-dead:

    A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

    Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

    I don’t know who any of these folks are.

    They were tourists I presume.

    But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

    "Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

    (Laughs.)

    There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

    The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

    One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

    There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

    "One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

    I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.

    Getting real fucking tired of you clumping all white people in the same pile. It’s irritating. Really fucking irritating. Not all of white people think the same and not all black people are pure as gold either. I’m not saying by any means that young man deserved to be shot. Cause there is a 99.9% chance he was an innocent victim and the officer needs to pay his dues. But there again… NOT ALL OFFICERS ARE BAD. You get let a few fucking bad eggs leave you to believe the whole god damn work force or race is the same. I hope that young man and his family see justice. But I also hope you stop with this shit about how bad “white” people are. No race is pure. We’ve all done bad things.

    Reblogging again for hella real statements
