"It’s not about race!"
So I guess the Ku Klux Klan showed up for some fresh air, then?
HERE FOR THIS
young.black.educated.confident. i don’t see a thug here. at all.
"I’m better at life than you."
Bu of a white person said this we’d be shit all over and called racist??? Double standards blow my mind….
What you qualify as a double standard blows my fucking mind, dude. “If a white person said this,” a white person wouldn’t even be in the position Richard Sherman was in
He was pumped after a game of professional football, and instead of a few jokes about him being overzealous or seeming mad even though he won the game, he was labeled as a thug. A pro NFL player was labeled as a thug for being excited about a football game
Fucking try to tell me that would happen to a white guy
I agree with all that but he is a douche. He is a grade A douche, but not for the above reasons. If you actually watch a bunch of his interviews and how he plays, he’s a douche.
Does it make me a dick that I’m really tired of hearing about the “ALS I’ve bucket challenge?”
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
Ferguson Police conveniently forgot to publicly release this part of the footage.
It shows Michael Brown paying for the pack of cigars he supposedly stole.
The officer who murdered Michael did not know he was a ‘suspect of a robbery’, so the tape of him ‘stealing’ the cigars have no relation to the killing.
But this footage is important because it proves that the police are trying to justify Mike’s murder by slandering his character.
I’m sick to my stomach.
If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.
But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.
Notice something in common in these photos?
It’s not what you think
I gave it away in the third pic
That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…
"Why would you care if you don’t have anything to hide?"
- Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
- Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
- Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.
My mom’s take on what’s going on in Ferguson (via actualbanshee)
Your mom isn’t wrong. That’s why it’s so important to keep the signal going. Too many are silenced with lies and fear and if they cannot speak then we have to do it for them.
SING IT FOR THE CHILDREN!
