10 Photos from Ferguson that won’t make it to the mainstream media.

A community in unity.These photos are via Twitter from a Journalist named Ryan Schuessler (@RyanSchuessler1) who unlike some journalists/reporters, chooses to focus on the activities truly going on right now. He’s not focusing on how much of a “hell-hole” some of them are reporting it to supposedly be. But a community of people who are just seeking Justice For Michael BrownIf you can look at these photos and still buy into the mainsteam media’s game, or feel sorry for the police here in the slightest bit - you’re not paying attention.

The anger and actions of the people in Ferguson are justified. They’re citizens who are outraged by the corruption of the justice system and by the fact these police forces are allowed to gas them and shoot into crowds of innocent civilians, whenever they’re rallying in a peaceful protest that the media refuses to expose. They’ll try to turn it around on these people as often as possible.

For those of us who are, and have been paying attention to what’s going on - to the people of Ferguson, hat’s off to you for standing up. Know there are people who know the truth and aren’t listening to what news sources like CNN, FoxNews and NBC are distorting the information into.

DO NOT FALL INTO THE ILLUSIONS AND DISTORTIONS OF THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA ABOUT THE EVENTS IN FERGUSON. DO NOT FALL PREY TO THEIR GAME.

THESE PEOPLE ARE STANDING AGAINST A CORRUPT POLICE FORCE THAT GOT CAUGHT UP IN THEIR OWN LIES. DO NOT JUST FALL INTO THE STORIES OF TEAR GAS, RUBBER BULLETS, RIOTS, and LOOTERS. THERE ARE EVENTS GOING ON FROM PEACEFUL PROTESTERS WHO ARE STANDING FOR JUSTICE.

Supermodel Ataui Deng has been missing for 10 days, y’all. Had it not been for Roblé’s post, I wouldn’t have heard anything. 10 Days and NOTHING in the media?

*sigh

If you have seen her or know anything concerning her disappearance, email FindAtaui@gmail.com

Again, I feel this begs to be said again:

Black.
Lives.
Matter.

OMFG :(

owning-my-truth:

And this is exactly what I hate the most in report after report about the Mike Brown Case- that there must always be caveats on our humanity as black people. It can never be that in his black body he had just as much right to live as a white person, that his life and humanity mattered and must be respected. No, as black people we always have to try and justify our worth to the world, even after we’ve been murdered in cold blood. The fact that we are human is never enough for people to have sympathy for us in our loss, and it’s disgusting. Did you hear people talking about the white kids shot in Columbine as being “quiet,” “respectful” what have you in order for us to care? It shouldn’t matter that Mike Brown was “quiet,” it shouldn’t matter that he was “respectful” (such a loaded term in and of itself) for his public execution in front of his community to be both illegal and immoral. Black life should matter regardless and headlines like this CBS news article just work to perpetuate respectability politics, antiblackness and the denigration of black life in this country and across the world.
