The police will kill again if they don'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.

just saw some coverage on the story on our local News Channel. this is my first time hearing that they said he assaulted the cop.


So it does look likr they took this time to put together a story.

That rumor has been circulating for a few days now

The other rumor was that he (the cop) was called to the scene b/c apparently Mike was shoplifting


Looks like they are trying to go the George Zimmerman route and paint this young man as a 'thug' who had it out for authority... cuz, you know that would justify shooting him point blank in the head Ermm
