    my mother is a police officer and her entire purpose revolves around her service to the community and the hours and hours she spends counseling teenagers at the high school, teaching classes, getting kids on track… idk im not very articulate right now but basically my example of what police are…

    We’re not people really.  Our concerns are not America’s concerns.  We are just here for entertainment. We’re a convenient treasure trove of limitless creativity to be pillaged, watered down, and re-purposed for White audiences and the people getting rich from bastardized stereotypes and simplified caricatures of everything we bring to the table have nothing to say when shit gets really real.

    Ferguson from my TL- August 18th (1/3)

    TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

    I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

    Colt 45 Molotov cocktail? What’s next, a watermelon incendiary bomb? A fried chicken pipe bomb? These jokers can’t even frame folks without their racism showing.

    Here’s an article talking about the ban on glass 40s in St Louis and the surrounding areas, btw.


    The people coming into Ferguson provoking violence against local protesters, be they opportunist wannabe radicals treating it like a revolutionary fantasy camp or police-planted provocateurs, are horrid and very real.

    Never ever ever ever ever forget that the violence being directed at this community is being unilaterally instigated by police in an effort to enforce systematic white supremacy. Do not be distracted by the excuses authorities try to make for themselves.

    Reblogging for the link and commentary.

    okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazis supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

    You have to be quite heavily invested in someone to do them the honour of telling them you’re annoyed with them.

    Scared is what you’re feeling. Brave is what you’re doing.

    Went through some of the notes and no one added what the book is about… pretty sure this is when mom and jack are preparing for their escape.

    Novel’s about a mom raising a 5yr old in a shack/captivity because she was abducted and molested by a creepy old dude, their escape and adjusting to life after room.

    Amazing book. Nothing gross or disturbing in it. More a struggling mother/son book than a look how gross book.

    Everyone should read the book.it’s awesome.

    Famous Failures

    I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.

    "If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."

    I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.


    What this reminds me is that I’m not “too old” I haven’t missed my prime, and even if I had, there’s so much left
