At this point Suey begins the #WhiteAllysh*t hashtag on twitter. Shortly after the #TimWiseBookClub hashtag is started. They are going in.

#TimWiseBookClub





#WhiteAllysh*t





Go on twitter and follow both hashtags to see more tweets.

Once things started snowballing Tim tried to make peace and say that life is too short for the "acrimony". But it's too late, the cat is long out of the bag.

The really ironic thing is that earlier today, Tim Wise told white people not to insert themselves into the #IfTheyGunnedMeDown hashtag, and to just read and learn. Yet, he did the exact opposite just a few hours later by trying to center himself and other whites in a discussion about Mike Brown's death.

Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) -- Hours after federal civil rights investigators and the FBI opened an inquiry into the death of a teenager shot by a police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, violence flared again in the St. Louis suburb.

Police Chief Thomas Jackson told CNN shots were fired Monday night in Ferguson, and police fired tear gas to disperse a crowd that had gathered in an area where looting occurred Sunday.

"Officers were brought in to quell the hostilities," he said. "Tear gas was deployed."

But Tim has a point. NOTHING will change in this country if white people don't at least admit they have a problem and take steps to see their privilege. I don't think it's so much making it about them as it is trying to include them in the narrative to hopefully make them understand why they ain't sh*t.

My friend in St. Louis said all the police had on their sirens earlier throughout the day and their presence was crazy

Not sure if he meant just the lights

trying to scare people into staying quiet

I'm not sure I like the way White so-called "allies" use the term "white privilege"

They're using it like...

ok you guys, we're great and all but let's tone it down a bit to let everyone else catch up because they've had such bad luck and  it's our job as the Great White Hope to fix that...

instead how they should be using it

by the mere virtue of being considered the same "race" as the colonists who wrecked havoc among this native land and the dark peoples of the world, we've inherited the same wealth and opportunities our group has consistently denied the very people who built this land and the people whose land they've built upon. And because the winners write the history, we've had the ability to down play the damage we've historically created without holding ourselves accountable; while, simultaneously, scapegoated the oppressed people for their current state

It's going to be real interesting after noon tomorrow when they release the murderer's name. People are going to have a more specific target then.

What do you say to a dead cop's wife?  Cops kill my people every day that's life. ~Talib Kweli

Every time there is some unjustice done to my people I make a simple statement like RIP Mike Brown #BareLifeProblems

I use that tag and my friends ask me what it means.  I explain it to them and they can do nothing but swallow hard.  

I had my kids (16, 9 and 7) watch Hidden Colors 3 today.  We had some great discussions as a family.  

The next civil rights movement won't be nearly as civil.  We're done.
