#Bob McCulloch is the Ferguson prosecutor in charge of the grand jury “investigating” 😒 his new bff Darren Wilson
#This is what institutional racism, White privilege and a police cover up (all rolled into one) looks like in 2k14

A fucking farse like I haven’t seen ever in real life. Damn.

A white civilian plowed his car through a group of peaceful protestors. When police responded they arrested a victim of the assault and not immediately the assaulter. Eventually the assaulter was arrested, but so were two other protestors. It took over 2 hours for the young boy to be transported to the hospital.

Wheres the justice?

Most of my future children tag is cute brown children being fabulous and clearly belonging to me in spirit, but I’m making an exception for this tweet because if I don’t raise my kids to give that exact same response, then I have failed as a parent.
Who is this woman and can I send her a thank-you gift basket and a Black Parenting Award?  This is why it is imperative that we teach our children real history outside of textbooks constructed by, written for, and approved by white men whose re-telling of history conveniently glosses over atrocities and minimizes suffering.
"bold new idea"
I want to go to that school and set fire to every history book in the building.

When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation.

But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him.

Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people.

True, anyone who’s been paying attention knows this. The only time you can get gun control passed in this country is when politicians start seeing POC walking around freely with guns.

I will be loud and vulgar and angry and me. So change your ways or shut your racist mouths. Use your liberal rationality to unlearn your contempt for me and my people, or shut your racist mouths.

I am going to eat you.

"This conservative fetish for “local government” has always stemmed from their desire to reclaim the “freedom” those southern towns used to have when they were allowed to handle their race “problems” as they saw fit. Any citizen who’s ever been exposed to local and state government knows very well that the idea it’s un-corrupted with greed and petty ambition is ludicrous. The fact that Ryan doesn’t understand that the mantra of “local control” in this situation is ridiculous is yet another sign that he’s so ideologically programmed he honestly doesn’t know how to think in any other way."
