“Some folks say, have always said: Lower your voice. Pull up your pants. Look respectable and you’ll get respect. Do those people not realize that our most eloquent, respectable leaders were all murdered in cold blood, all in their suits and ties? No, fuck what you think of our clothes or manner of speaking—we have a right to life.”
Larry Mizell Jr. on Ferguson.  Go read it.  (via seattlish)

“I’ve heard that exercise and a lean, healthy diet can make a big difference… I’ve always known this but I can’t help it - personally, I would rather read a book or watch Big Brother than go to a gym and jump about with a flushed face. Whenever I have passed a gym, and I’ve passed many, I look in through the steamed-up windows and see sights I would only ever imagine in the nine circles of hell. Puffing red people grimacing in pain, leaking buckets o’sweat.”
— Dawn French, Dear Fatty

is this beautiful solidarity too much for you, anon?

(also, i feel bad for you.)

Also keep in mind that Israel has trained St. Louis police forces and have proud advice on crowd supression

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.

Think how much creepier it would be to see them killing other kids when they look so squishy-cheeked and little.

“I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.”
