I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.
If you are on Twitter, here’s a good roster of people to follow if you want to keep updated.
"As the protesters marched through the streets, it began to storm. Every time the thunder crashed, the protesters would cheer louder and louder. It seemed as if mother nature herself were cheering them on.."
looks straight outta the Civil Rights Era…we’re not done yet
So today in Feurgeson the cops said people could protest but they can’t congregate. They had to keep moving, like march. This is denying the right to assemble. Black people weren’t allowed to form crowds in this country. Literally Jim Crow. Not New Jim Crow, just Jim Crow. Shit never went away

my white protesters please remember that you’re rarely at the same risk we are when you stand up for what is right
I’m not gonna stop reblogging these reminders
As hard as it is for white people to take a stand, realize we have it so much easier than others.

Protesters upset about the smearing of Mike Brown converged at CNN headquarters.
To all the people wondering why and having concerns because black celebrities aren’t speaking up to help our community in these trying times, I understand. But remember a nigga with money is still a nigga. And what power they may have is miniscule.
Be concerned why our black politicians arent…

The beauty in this picture is overwhelming
can you say Thomas Jefferson and everyone of his co signers of the declaration of so called independence. yeah independence for who ?
Not so fun fact: those signers were so hounded by the fact that they kept slaves that many of them bent over backwards to justify keeping slaves, including pointing out cranial structures and cultural differences. They were claiming black people to be subhuman so that they could claim they wanted freedom while still keeping slaves.
Fetishizers and racists love to argue that if you find someone sexually attractive, aesthetically pleasing, or have lust for them; you “are not racist”.
Quite the contrary, lusting someone because of a fetish means that you do not see them as human; merely a play you for your sexual fantasies. It is dehumanizing. The object of lust can easily be replaced by anyone who looks similar and their happiness is not needed as long as yours it guaranteed.
Usually when people ask how a racist can have sex with someone of another race I use this very example of the slave/master complex.
