HAPPENING NOW (9.24.14): The situation in Ferguson is escalating quickly. Protests continue, following this morning’s burning of a Mike Brown memorial, and another frustrating Ferguson City Council meeting.Looks like the same “antagonize over de-escalate” tactics are back online. Prayers to all those out in the street of Ferguson right now fighting for their right to exist. #staywoke #farfromover (PT IPT IIPT III)  

Bringing back the dogs, choppers, charging the crowd, attempting to bottleneck protesters into an area, AND live shots possible fired into the crowd… what the ever-living fuck is Ferguson PD trying to do?! We’re a month and a half into this saga, and they still don’t know how to de-escalate a situation. Pray y’all. That might be all we got right now.

oh my god

This makes me so sick to my stomach.

This is video footage of John Crawford being murdered by the police. He was inside a Walmart talking on his cell phone, carrying an air rifle that he picked up inside the store. 

The cops claimed they gave him multiple warnings to drop his weapon, but the video footage doesn’t support that. Strange how the release of the video was suppressed for such a long time.

Yes please, explain to me again how this has nothing to do with sexism.

[TRIGGER WARNING for EVERYTHING]

This clip of my friend Boots Riley describing his band The Coup as a “Punk, Funk/ Communist revolution band” to unsuspecting reporters on Fox 8 in Cleveland is amazing!! Reminds me of that time I was on Fox 5 in NYC.

After the show, the producer sent an angry email to festival organizers that said:

“FOX 8 was not the time or opportunity for Boots to go on his political rant. With his statements he not only hurt our station’s credibility, but also the festival’s. I was looking to do a fun interview and it turned into something entirely different. We will not be reaching out for any interviews in the future.”

This letter is very telling about the intended function of mainstream media outlets.

Their faces. LOL

I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.

If you are on Twitter, here’s a good roster of people to follow if you want to keep updated.
