Guys, just because it’s out of the mainstream media doesn’t mean that the problems are gone. We gotta keep giving attention to these issues

For all you gross cop apologists + people who haven’t been keeping up:

  1. Autopsy showed no sign of struggle. Also, the autopsy showed the bullet wounds on the inside of his arm which means that his arms had to be up.
  2. The picture of the CT scan that’s being passed around to show that Wilson had an orbital blowout fracture is actually from 2008 from the University of Iowa.
  3. Video shows Brown paying at the store.
  4. The only eyewitness who supported the police’s story is fake.
  5. Actual eyewitness accounts of what happened.

Yeah. There was absolutely no reason to kill Michael Brown. What happened was murder, plain and simple.

A large crowd of protesters has descended upon a northeast neighborhood in Washington, D.C., taking over the streets, on Saturday night in a symbol of solidarity with their counterparts in Ferguson, Missouri, who called for justice for Mike Brown earlier during the day.

The Washington protesters chanted: “Whose streets? Mike’s Streets” and “We’re young, we’re strong, we’re marching all night long” as they walked down H Street northeast, at one point hitting the Bladensburg Road intersection, with police not far away.

"H Street shut it down, racist cops, shut it down," they sang while shaking tambourines, clapping and drumming.

The protest was being live-streamed on UStream.

Protesters also took to Twitter with the hashtag #DCFerguson.

The crowd, carrying signs that say “Am I Next?” and “Justice for Mike Brown,” has stopped traffic and some drivers are honking at the protesters. A man on the live-stream video said the march has halted two Greyhound buses from driving. The rally is a grassroots effort, said a man on a bullhorn who seemed to be leading the protest.

Brown, an unarmed teenager, was shot and killed by a police offer on August 9. His death sparked multiple protests in the St. Louis suburb of Missouri, some of which were met with tear gas and tanks. People in other U.S. cities have also marched in response, calling for justice for Brown as well as an end to racial inequality.

On Saturday morning, hundreds of protesters in Ferguson, led by Brown’s parents and family members, began their peaceful march on West Florissant Avenue, which has become the center of several demonstrations since Brown’s death.

"Be proud and letzten men cum on your hijab"

Personally, (yes, disclimer) I would always respect a woman/model/tumblr user if they did not want to be featured on my blog due to its perceived offensive content. That being said, I believe it is not only pointless, but it perpetuates the cycle of fetishism you are trying to destroy! You don’t know it, but you’re feeding the fetish. It’s brilliant.

Technically speaking…she consented by uploading it to social media (albeit for different reasons; she wants attention, not objectification)….now it’s basically free domain. So she has indirectly and unintentionally allowed us to sexualize her. It’s definitely hotter that way, but theres a big “ETHICS” angel on my right shoulder. Oh, the politics of religious appropriation

Lesson of the day: Let the men cum on your Hijab.

Report these fuckers!!

this is so disgusting. please report them

Um, I’m going to disagree with the “technically speaking” shit, but this literally just made me puke a little in my mouth omg, pls report them.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson 
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson’s name was not released for a week to give him a head start in “cleaning” up his social media and moving.

  • Do not forget the copious amount of evidence FPD faked.

  • Do not forget Hilary Clinton was asked about Ferguson at a book signing and she ignored the question and left the store.

  • Do not forget that RCP and outside agitators attended to aggravate the situation.

Guys it’s really important during this whole ferguson protest that we as social media DO NOT back down until punishment is dealt to those racists. If we let this movement die, then the oppressors win. I’ve seen stuff like this before and the majority of people stop posting about it within a week. We can’t let that happen, this is too important. so keep reblogging and keep posting until these darn racists are punished for their awful inhumane actions.

miltonsong:

The Ferguson police department was forced to release an incident report with the freedom of information act by the ACLU.  When the ACLU gets the report it only has Michael Brown’s date of death and nothing about the incident and it was filed two days ago.

So that means that the Darren Wilson never filed an incident report on killing a young man and his superiors covered that up by approving and making up an incident report.

But he’s only on administrative leave?

Right.  America.

just to be clear, we are looking at a scenario in which the very organization tasked with investigating an officer-involved-shooting… are behind the donation drive to support the officer involved in the shooting

I just phrased that in the most neutral terms possible and it’s still absolutely damning

$3.5M minimum the murderer will be receiving as an award for a lynching.

That’s pretty much the scope of it. 

ain’t that some shit
