jamietheignorantamerican:

People are losing their fire and forgetting about Ferguson. That’s exactly what the police want, though: for all of this to just go away and for people to forget about it.

Don’t let that happen.

A group of people caught up in unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, after a white officer killed a black teenager, sued local officials on Thursday, alleging civil rights violations through arrests and police assaults with rubber bullets and tear gas.

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, says law enforcement met a broad public outcry over the Aug. 9 killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown with “militaristic displays of force and weaponry,” (and) engaged U.S. citizens “as if they were war combatants.”

The lawsuit seeks a total of $40 million on behalf of six plaintiffs, including a 17-year-old boy who was with his mother in a fast-food restaurant when they were arrested. Each of the plaintiffs was caught up in interactions with police over a period from Aug. 11 to 13, the suit allege.

Houston, Texas: March and rally in solidarity with the Ferguson uprising, August 20, 2014.

"Whose streets? Our streets! Took over the streets in Third Ward, marching in solidarity with Ferguson, from the HPD cop shop on West Grey and St. Emanuel and through the hood. We out-smarted the cops who were trying to block the streets and keep us on the sidewalks. HPD, out of our community!”

Moving day

Whenever I’ve had to carry one of my larger pieces a long distance for something I always think of this film. I always think how it sucks carrying my work and this piece of wood is cutting into my fingers and palm. I think about how heavy the wood is and why did I even decide to paint on it. I think about is this piece I’m bleeding for right now even good enough. Will it have life after me? I think about this film and I think it’ll be worth it even if I have to carry it 1000 miles.

trillaryclinton thehomiejazz
y’all hear about this?!?!?

What the fuck

Remember all the famous white girls that were caught shopliting and not shot and killed? Remember when white tumblr went and did life hacks for shopliftin because it was “sticking it to the man” in their upper middle class world where they read one post about Marxism and liked a picture of a sweatshop in china one time

This mother was killed without a second thought its not about shopliftit its about killing black people, its genocide on our people
