I finally found the perfect reference after three months of researching and only finding resources sorta kinda relating to my research. I’ve never known a happiness like this before.
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
Literally clapping right now
this is perfect they their governor NEEDS to see this.I think just yesterday also he called the national guard to help the maintain the “growing number of criminal acts and organized idividuals” how the fuck are peaceful protestors doing criminal acts?
& somehow cops managed without a tank & tear gas. #ferguson #mikebrown #policebrutality #racism
What the FUCK
White people riot all the damn time. UNC wins? Riot. UNC loses? Riot. Penn State fires a guy for covering for a pedophile for years? RIOT RIOT RIOT!
But too many black people gather, even peacefully, and here comes the tear gas and rubber(coated) bullets.
The thing is:
White people riot and destroy property when they lose games, or, strangely, when they win games, at sporting events.
They riot and destroy property when child rapists and people who are complicit in covering up child rape are penalized and punished.
But if black people riot and destroy property in response to systemic injustice and State-sanctioned violence against black people, then the country, the media, and American citizens regard us as unthinking savages.
Surely, the unmitigated fuckery present in this paradigm is self-evident….

Every white person who believes that because Michael Brown stole cigars from a corner store, he deserved to be shot, I want you to ask yourself this: do you ACTUALLY believe that petty theft warrants being shot 6 times, including twice in the head? I’ve shoplifted once before, when I was about 19, and if I had been caught, I wouldn’t have been shot. They wouldn’t have even drawn their gun. The worst that would have happened to me is getting a slap on the wrist and having to return the item I pilfered, and maybe a ban from returning to the store. My skin color has awarded me certain privileges that I don’t necessarily deserve, meanwhile black skin appears to come only with consequences. It is disgustingly unfair just how far we are from true equality for all races, and even more unfair that because of my skin color, I can choose to ignore systematic racism if I wanted to.
