So did anyone hear about the officer who placed a woman under arrest for breastfeeding in NYC? She went to get on her bus, he pulled her back by the collar of her shirt, and as a result she dropped her 3 month old baby. He still placed her under arrest while her baby was lying on the concrete with a cracked skull. Her daughter died at the hospital while she was at the police station. He’s on PAID leave.
You’re sick and tired, yet you are not the one who is dealing with racial oppression, or being tear gassed or maced or dragged out of your vehicle for being black. It’s easy to scroll past a post about brutality and racial oppression because it does not effect you. You have the privilege of being able to make the decision to ignore it because it does not effect you. And that decision is wrong. Just because the information being provided makes you feel uncomfortable or disappoints you, you are turning a blind eye and taking no part in supporting these people who are suffering greatly. If your family member or loved one was shot multiple times while running away from a cop, having done nothing whatsoever to deserve being stopped by a cop in the first place but for the fact that your skin is darker, you’d be disappointed and frustrated with the number of people so willing to not only ignore injustice, but to tell others it’s okay to ignore it too just because it makes you sick and tired. Imagine what you’d feel like if you were ACTUALLY being effected by the actions of oppressive people. Imagine how sick and tired you would be THEN.
I’m litteraly losing followers because of the Ferguson things I’m reblogging. Listen up,
Unfollow me right now if you don’t want to see anything about the Ferguson things. I don’t want anyone to follow me if they think racsism is dead and democracy and freedom still exists in America.
it fucking blows my mind how almost 200k if not more people will sign a petition to kick justin bieber out of this country because they feel ‘unsafe’ with him living here but not even 70k people will sign a petition that stops cops from killing innocent black people on the streets like wow
The pure fact that this doesn’t even need a title or a description or anything speaks volumes. I mean look at the number of notes this has. There are so few people who don’t recognize it. And the song itself just gives you chills. It’s so magical.
