& somehow cops managed without a tank & tear gas. #ferguson #mikebrown #policebrutality #racism
What the FUCK
White people riot all the damn time. UNC wins? Riot. UNC loses? Riot. Penn State fires a guy for covering for a pedophile for years? RIOT RIOT RIOT!
But too many black people gather, even peacefully, and here comes the tear gas and rubber(coated) bullets.
The thing is:
White people riot and destroy property when they lose games, or, strangely, when they win games, at sporting events.
They riot and destroy property when child rapists and people who are complicit in covering up child rape are penalized and punished.
But if black people riot and destroy property in response to systemic injustice and State-sanctioned violence against black people, then the country, the media, and American citizens regard us as unthinking savages.
Surely, the unmitigated fuckery present in this paradigm is self-evident….
All of the truth here.
Anonymous said: do you think there has been enough focus on indigenous australians? because not going to lie, the only time i really see any focus upon them is when i actually come onto your blog and i do follow a lot of people who really fight for racial social justice. i just feel like it's such a big loss. it also seems like a lot of non-indigenous australians don't pay any attention either for the most part.
There’s not NEARLY enough focus on Indigenous Australian peoples. I’m not even talking about internationally and on the internet internationally, I’m talking about in Australia. Something non-Indigenous Australians love to do is get all worked up about injustices overseas, but completely ignore the injustices happening in Australia.
