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.

Westboro Baptists to picket Michael Brown’s funeral — blame death on gay NFL player

Members of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church have announced that it plans to protest the funeral of Michael Brown on August 25, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri, the New Civil Rights Movement reports.

According to a flyer posted on the Topeka-based church’s official Twitter account, the reason for their protest has nothing to do with the tragic death of Michael Brown, because “[r]egardless of the details [of the shooting], the cause was from the Lord!”

“Missouri has made itself known worldwide for three things,” the flyer states, “Fags (e.g. Michael Sam); bestiality; and shredding the constitution in order to remove the Word of God from their streets.”

“Now you reap what you have so diligently sown, Missouri!” the flyer continues. “Your streets resemble a Middle Eastern warzone! Those same lawless citizens that you turned loose on WBC now riot and loot; those same oath-breaking cops gun down unarmed citizens in the streets, and then cower behind weapons of war…All evidence points to Michael [Brown] now being in Hell. It’s your fault, Missouri! His blood is on your hands!”

Last week, the church announced plans to picket the funeral of the late comedian Robin Williams, telling its followers “to remember, Robin Williams hung himself. That is cause for shame and mourning.”
