maarnayeri:

There are really fewer things that sadden me more than black women who lose their children to police brutality and release statements about how their son or daughter had academic or career goals they wanted to complete.

Its almost innate to every comment released by the slain’s family, as if they know they have list qualities (that are wholly irrelevant and arbitrary in that particular context) to prove their child deserved life to garner support. As if empathy for murdered black people comes with a list of prerequisites about how they could’ve contributed to society in a capitalistic sense and not that they’re entitled to live without the perpetual danger of being gunned down for the crime of existing while undesired.

Its such an unfortunately dehumanizing and profoundly violent society we live in that victims become the topic of speculation and if they aren’t able to measure up to arbitrary standards, they don’t matter.

I pray to God everyday for the violence to stop . We need to stop killing our own . I am watching the news . A want to be rapper shot and pistol whip a man inside a liquor store . People continue to shop and step over the shaking man .

I feel like between the Police killing our people and black on black crime we are in serious trouble . I do my best to help when possible. I take teens fishing after a complete background check . I can't describe how happy some kids are to go fishing for the first time .

I understand many members are in school , married , children or working many hours , but please sign up for Big Brother /Sisters . 5 hours a month can change a teens life for the better . JMO .
You are so right!  Unfortunately there are not many Big Sis/Bro that sign up for this organization.  It is a wonderful safe haven if you've ever been.

I forget that Youtube gurus name (beatface?) her brother who passed away recently was one of the MOVE children.

Yep. 
Burned down 61 houses. 
And this was a black middle class area right?

I watched the documentary.
They were annoying and coo coo, but you don't just let kids burn like that.

A second man has been shot by police in the Missouri city where an unarmed black 18-year-old was shot dead last weekend, according to multiple reports.

Police officials told local reporters that the man was shot in Ferguson by a St Louis County officer after pointing a handgun at him soon after 1am on Wednesday, following fresh demonstrations over the death on Saturday of Michael Brown.

The officer was responding to reports of shots being fired and men wearing ski masks carrying shotguns. The man was in critical condition in hospital, a police spokesman told the St Louis Post-Dispatch, Fox 2 and KMOV, and his gun was recovered at the scene.

A woman was separately being treated in hospital after being shot in the head during a drive-by shooting in the city. The incidents followed the peaceful end earlier to a tense standoff between protesters and police, prompting hopes of avoiding a third night of violence
