This women is only 60 years old. 60. Now go ahead and bitch about “reverse racism” and affirmative action, and ask “why are people still using the ‘race card?’” And “why don’t black people just try harder? Slavery ended hundreds of years ago.” 

Here’s why you should shut your face: Because that little girl who had to be protected by police just so she could go to school is only 60 years old now. The people who threw shit at a 6 year old aren’t even dead yet!

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover 

My people getting it!

these people are the real heroes. not the military, not politicians, not the Hollywood actors. they risked their lives and livelihoods to challenge white supremacy and institutionalized racism.
