"Ratchet is a racialized term. So is ghetto. So is thug. So is welfare queen. Someone does not have to EXPLICITLY say the word “black” in order for something to be racist against black people. Speaking in flagrantly racist terms is one of the least sophisticated manifestations of racism today."

Anyways I think we should outlaw ironic acoustic covers of hip-hop songs

Seriously. The racism is so thinly veiled.

Guys, I have to hit you with some harsh news. Everything is in the description above. Another act of police brutality against a Black body. His name is Tyquan Henderson and he was pistol whipped and required brain surrey due to his injuries. News is that he was taken right out of ICU and put him into jail. Can we please get this known? Because, he is in no condition to protect himself or to even be out of a best where he should be resting!

what the fuck is happening in this country?????

BREAKING: Peaceful Protesters In Ferguson MO Get Pummeled By Police Officers After Their Chief Marched With Protesters

  • I think the PD is aggressively attacking protestors because they assume & no longer gives a damn
  • Chief Jackson did this. His officers did this. Women were attacked. He said he was marching with us. Lies..he set us up
  • And Chief Jackson didn’t do ANYTHING to stop the attacks and mayhem. DID NOTHING!
  • LOTS of cops out right now. A short clash with the police after arrests were made. Live Feed Here:

i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened. 

Well it will. It certainly will, but so what? Slavery, Jim Crow, Montgomery, The March on Washington, Watts, The L.A. Riots - all of this is important American history that kids learn about in school. But here we still are. Not again, but STILL. It’s easy to be on the right side of history when it *is* history. When injustices are happening in present day (as they always have), there will be media spin, oppressor excuses and justifications, cover-ups, and bans on discussions in class. Including any of these things in the history books is meaningless as a cultural lesson or cautionary tale if we simultaneously teach unflinching obedience to authority, the virtue of capitalism, and racist revisions. Media literacy and critical thinking are discouraged in the classroom. Until that changes, we will continue to learn about these events and gasp, bow our heads and tut tut about how savage and ignorant our predecessors were, while we don’t even raise an eyebrow at the assault and murder of people of colour down the street from us.

do people say “bad neighborhood” for cities next to all-white high schools where the boys are getting high every day and raping girls? do they even say “bad neighborhood” for cities with large kkk meetings? or is bad neighborhood a strictly anti-black code?
