Moral of the story, don’t burn your food in the dorms. (at Bailey Hall)
Two Cups of Tea - Star Fucking Hipsters
Two cups of tea
one for you and one for me
drown out the pan from polluted acid rain
and flaming gasoline, until we’re clean
two dead police
one for hope and one for peace
watching government lies
leak into your empty eyes
from the t.v. and winners history
three dead police
one for thanks and two for please
in every single town, every officer is down
all dead police, all dead police
Fuck. Respectability. Politics.
Seriously, if people don’t think white supremacy is a thing they need to w ake the fuck up. My blood has been boiling for so damn long.
I hope this sinks in your hearts.
This is fucking crazy and it makes me so sick
this is so important
Civil Rights Movement vs Ferguson Protests
CultureHISTORY: The Ferguson Protests - #NMOS14
In light of Mike Brown’s murder, and the police occupation of Ferguson, something extraordinary is happening. With the help of #BlackTwitter, social media, the spotlight of national attention and the impassioned citizens of Ferguson, a protest movement is taking shape and it is important to bear witness.
First there was the #IfTheyGunnedMeDown thread which was reported in the NY Times & LA Times, the #DontShoot thread of photos (some above), and tomorrow a National Moment of Silence across the country for the victims of police brutality.
Thursday, August 14th – #NMOS14 - 4:00P (PT) / 6:00P (CT) / 7:00P (ET). Check cities/location here.
The issue of police brutality against communities of color is a decades-old problem. But with new technology, everyone has access to more information and these cases are getting more attention. Plus, in the last four weeks, four unarmed black men have been killed by policemen across the country. Along with Mike Brown in St. Louis, Eric Garner in New York, John Crawford in Dayton, OH and Ezell Ford in L.A. Yes, it’s time for a movement.
