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.

stars-collected:

Michael Brown was an 18 year old that was killed by a Ferguson Police Officer on Saturday, August 9th.  His family is now seeking justice for Michael’s death.  Their pursuit for justice will be lengthy and hard but with the support of the community they will get justice.  If you are willing to support Michael’s family please donate to Michael Brown’s Memorial Fund.  These funds will assist his family with costs that they will acquire as they seek justice on Michael’s behalf.  All funds will be given to the Michael Brown family.  We appreciate your support.
Donate here.

clitriarchy:

If there was ever a time to NOT be using “poc” it’s now. Do not generalize. Do not say “what poc are going through!”. It’s black people. What BLACK PEOPLE are going through. It’s not generalized racism, it’s anti-black racism and this is a time to be direct and listen to /black/ people and talk about black people.
