i imagine malec living together would mostly magnus be like “now that you live here alec i guess you’ve got the privilege to witness me air guitar in my underwear at 2am”
…How dare people preach and condescend to these people and tell them not to loot, not to riot? Yes, those are destructive forms of anger, but frankly I would rather these people take their anger out on property and products rather than on other people.
No, I don’t support looting. But I question a society that always sees the product of the provocation and never the provocation itself. I question a society that values property over black life. But I know that our particular system of law was conceived on the founding premise that black lives are white property…
Nothing makes white people more uncomfortable than black anger. But nothing is more threatening to black people on a systemic level than white anger. It won’t show up in mass killings. It will show up in overpolicing, mass incarceration, the gutting of the social safety net, and the occasional dead black kid. Of late, though, these killings have been far more than occasional. We should sit up and pay attention to where this trail of black bodies leads us….
Michael White is the name of the Ferguson police officer who extrajudicially executed Michael Brown.
That is not the name of the officer. They dude who made that tweet was making a play on words. The victim’s name was Michael Brown so he called the cop Michael White. Please spread this around so people know that this isn’t actually the officer’s name.
My heart goes out.
Not only to the citizens and people of Ferguson, but to any Veterans in the area that may be getting “triggered” off the kind of noise and atmosphere i’ve seen and heard in those videos. My heart goes out to you, brothers.
