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.

If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.

But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.

America.

But it’s rush week. So, y’all sleep.

I’m seriously considering doing some type of challenge to raise awareness. 90% of the people I know act like they can’t be bothered.

Seriously though. I’ve seen at least 30 ice bucket challenges on my news feed (all of which have been done incorrectly), but not a single person can be bothered to comment on what’s going on in Ferguson.You should definitely make a challenge! And part of it should be to have people sign the petitions going around (protect people from the police, requiring police to wear a camera, etc) and/or donate something to the people in Ferguson off the wishlist.

This is #JonathanFerrell. Last summer, he crashed his car in Charlotte. He climbed out of his car and started walking in search of help. Police arrived, surrounded the site of the crash and Ofc. Randall Kerrick shot Jonathan multiple times in the chest, killing him. #endpolicebrutality

WHAT?

let us not forget

White tumblr can understand that wearing a short skirt and high heels doesn't mean you were asking for it, but they can't understand that sagging your pants and saying nigga doesn't mean you deserved to be killed.

BGF Fly Girls :: This morning we feel inspired by the unnamed Fly Queens from Nashville who are down in MO, peacefully protesting. The images are akin to some photos of Vintage Fly Girls from the 1970s that we will share today. Mainstream media is void of images like this, so we are grateful for independent media outlets and individuals taking to social media to share what is happening on the ground in Missouri.
