White dude in St. Louis named Kevin Miner was wanted for burglary.He eluded police officers until they conducted a search of a resident’s home and found him.He attacked both officers, breaking one cop’s hand. The media even alludes to Miner being forced to “fight back” against the police because of how he was being apprehended!Miraculously, the cops managed not to punch him in the face repeatedly, put him in a chokehold, or shoot him six times including once in the face and once in the head.He, in fact, barely had a scratch on him.Imagine that.The next time someone says to you:"BUT IT’S NOT ABOUT RACE (Patent Pending)!"Throw your tea dead in their face Dominique Deveraux-style and pump on away from them like Naomi Campbell.

Miraculously, the cops managed not to punch him in the face repeatedly, put him in a chokehold, or shoot him six times including once in the face and once in the head.

He, in fact, barely had a scratch on him.

Imagine that.

The next time someone says to you:

"BUT IT’S NOT ABOUT RACE (Patent Pending)!"

Throw your tea dead in their face Dominique Deveraux-style and pump on away from them like Naomi Campbell.

"As the protesters marched through the streets, it began to storm. Every time the thunder crashed, the protesters would cheer louder and louder. It seemed as if mother nature herself were cheering them on."

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

Seriously, what the police are doing is not “bad”, it’s illegal.

There is a reason why people are raging mad at this situation, and it’s because it’s a blatant violation of basic human rights.

If you don’t understand that, then you are part of the problem.

Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement.

I don’t trust people who don’t have any sort of reaction to whatever is going in Ferguson/what has been happening in Palestine for the past couple of months/Pakistan/Afghanistan/etc. etc. like  there is one thing to be a political commentator and write articles etc. you need to know your stuff but it’s another thing to just simply show your sympathy/support.
