I'm bad at summaries but this is what I got.  I'm sure someone will clean this up for me with bullet points.


Article speaks on how Mike, Oscar and Trayvon weren't perfect and we knew that but it seems that media is/was looking for a reason to drag them.  There stories started out Innocent boy got shot but over a coupla days they were turned into thugs by media. They failed us by not being perfect. Because they weren't perfect they deserved what they got and most of america is ready to believe these boys deserved to get killed because they may not have been perfect Angels.

Touches on how we believe some of us are "worth" more because we went to school or are in school or some sort of educated negro.   Quick story about a "friend" who when getting pulled over would put his college ID on top of his license so he could give it to the officer by accident there by showing the officer he's not one who deserves to get shot.  Feels guilty about it now. The author also used to do the same thing and it worked sometimes so they don't feel quite as guilty.

The #iftheygunnedmedown tag while criticizing media it was also a calculation of self worth on their terms.

We have to start making a #neverforget list. Should be easy though seeing as the number of public figures who've spoken out I could count on both hands...maybe a foot.

The organization for black struggle St. Louis chapter is raising funds to hire a full time police accountability organizer. I think that's a great idea that could trickle into other African-American based community groups around the nation.
