This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious”

“If a female student got drunk and had her car stolen the university would call the police. If she got drunk and had her computer stolen, they would call the police. If she got drunk and had her phone stolen, they would call the police. The fact that she was drunk would not even be factored in when assessing if a crime had been committed. But if she gets drunk and has her body invaded and her humanity stolen, school administrations are perplexed about what to do.” — International Human Rights Activist Michael Simmons offered these words (via Facebook) in response to the May 3, 2014 New York Times’ “Fight Against Sex Assaults Holds Colleges to Account” article.  (via ranjhana)

that’s it that’s the winner


im soooo embarrassed

notice how at the bottom right of the magazine it says “how a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical islam and became a monster”, notice how not only he’s on THE COVER OF A MAGAZINE but he is also being DEFENDED for the crime he committed, a white kid can commit TERRORIST ATTACKS and still get excused for it, but hell to a black kid walking too slow or supposedly “stealing candy” that’s not worth more than $3, and people still have the audacity to say that “race doesn’t change anything” BECAUSE IT FUCKING DOES

  • White people: *reads/watches a book/movie about a Dystopian world* wow those poor people being oppressed by the government and authority.they have every right to fight back and should start a revolt.Nobody should be treated this way!
  • POC: *actually oppressed by government and police authority*
  •  *are prosecuted each and everyday*
  •  *gets killed and beaten by the police while being unarmed*
  •  *gets Fed up and start protesting against all this*
  • White people: ..
  •  ...
  •  ...
  •  Wow like I understand that racial minorities are angry but that doesn't give them the right to riot and say that you hate the police and white people.You don't fight fire with fire! This isn't about race unless you make it about race! #weallbleedred

This is a collection of Tweets from military veterans reacting to the police response in Ferguson.
