Here’s a picture of cops watching the Mike Brown memorial burn.

Put this everywhere. Show everyone. The protest pictures capture the determination and strength of the people they abuse.

Even if they’re not literally punching a protestor here… THIS picture captures them.

"The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century."

Never forget that the Ferguson police left Mike Brown’s body out in the hot summer sun, uncovered for more than 5 hours. Sound familiar? #staywoke #farfromover

there’s literally no point in teaching girls to be body positive if you only use men’s opinions for validation like “boys like girls with curves” nah get that the fuck out of here

But let’s get something straight: a community pushing back against a murderous police force that is terrorizing them is not a “riot”. It’s an uprising. It’s a rebellion. It’s a community saying We can’t take this anymore. We won’t take it. It’s people who have been dehumanized to the point of rightful rage. And it happens all over the world. Uprisings and rebellions are necessary and inevitable, locally and globally. This is not to say that actual riots don’t happen. White folks riot at sporting events, for example. Riots happen. But people rising up in righteous anger and rage in the face of oppression should not be dismissed as simply a “riot”.

Don’t be distracted by terms like “rioting”. Whether you’re for or against uprising and rebellion (side-eye if you’re against it, though), it’s a tool, not the issue itself. The issue is yet another Black teenager murdered by police. His name was Mike Brown.

Stop calling ISIS the Islamic State.

You guys will go upon lengths and jump hoops to deny that the KKK are a Christian influenced group but won’t blink to say Muslim and terrorist in the same sentence.

The language you use matters.
