Welp, we are leaving to go on vacation in a couple of hours and I have no idea how the internet will be in Ghana. In case it doesn’t work so well - have a lovely week and a half, and I’ll see you all when we get back! : )

as a white person, i apologize.

i apologize for the special privileges i will receive. i apologize for the fact that innocent young poc are being killed in the streets while white murderers and rapists not only walk free, but are sympathized with. i apologize for the blatant racism in the world today and i apologize on behalf of the white people who turn a blind eye to it because they think its not their problem. as a white person i apologize.

And I will do whatever I can to make things better.

CAPTAIN JOHNSON NOW IN CHARGE OF FERGUSON SITUATION
"I’m going to march with you. There won’t be a police line."


Dang this sounds awesome. Any more sources for this? I’m too exhausted to fact check properly :/

Poked around a bit, multiple reports on CNN and elsewhere confirming at least the basics of, yes, that’s the guy.



Awesome, thank you for fact checking.

Since stuff tends to get reblogged forever:

It’s about 9:23 PM Central time (which I think Missouri is too).

@tabithalou: This what they not showing you on the media. These young men cleaning up after the riot. #Ferguson

This also is hugely important. There’s a fixation in stories. A general pessimism about the human race. But I think there’s plenty of evidence for our giving nature. That bad, bad horrible things happen and there’s ALWAYS people willing to stand up and make things better. Across generations and cultures and nations. No matter how bad things get, there’s never not somebody looking out for their kids, their neighbors, their community. And that kind of solidarity pushes us through.
Even if it’s something as simple and seemingly small as picking up the trash after a major confrontation. That too is important.

^^THANK YOU

""but that book character has blue/grey/light eyes so obviously they’re white!!"" ://///

Yes, goddamnit(Reminder that light eyes and blonde hair can be caused by conditions, such as Waardenburg Syndrome and albinism, but they are still real people that can (and should) be represented in media and such)And also I can add that I have news for y’all, people can be black and naturally blondeAnd literally people from ANY KIND can be a redheadand have freackles and suchSo please, stop pretending only white people can have those characteristics, jfc, it’s sofucking annoying.

Boom de yada

Just to add on - While race is a very, very, very significant issue, race as we know it is a social construct. When you acknowledge that all people on earth have veeeery little genetic variation in the scope of things, it’s much easier to break oneself from the training of “only white people have this, only black people have that, only asian people have this trait, etc”

This is a collection of Tweets from military veterans reacting to the police response in Ferguson. 

And if this shit doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will.
