I don’t understand how someone could hear about this and want to “hear both sides of the story” or think that “well, people get shot all the time” like how are you not fucking devastated that this happened and has been happening and will continue to happen how are you not ashamed and furious and confused and sad



idk if I’m just fed up with white people or if I’m PMSing or what but I’m straight up really upset bc people don’t understand the scope of this people don’t understand that it’s bigger than laws and that the scope of this is HUGE and there’s so much history there and that this is such a tragedy and people are ignoring it or refusing to think about it or missing the point and I can’t fucking believe it



do not ever go into the comments section of any video or article about Ferguson. just don’t do it.



socialjusticekoolaid:

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part IV)

And now for the side show… the STL County Council/police fail at being empathetic, and tone deaf white people are tone deaf (and white). #staywoke #farfromover



also I don’t care what someone says sending them death threats is never okay ever I literally DO NOT CARE YOU FUCKING TOOK IT TOO FAR.



it’s great that people on this website are so open to calling people out when they do or say shitty things but what we’ve really got to stop doing is refusing any kind of forgiveness to people who have REPEATEDLY shown they have the propensity to listen, correct themselves, and grow. when someone bows their head over and over again and concedes that they were wrong when they were wrong and makes fewer mistakes over time and you do nothing but berate them and refuse to acknowledge their growth, not only are you being an asshole and harping someone who’s done nothing but listen respectfully and adjust accordingly, but you’re fighting someone who doesn’t need to be fought when you literally have an entire army of ppl who don’t understand at all and aren’t ready to learn or grow at your back like TURN THE FUCK AROUND AND KEEP FIGHTING DON’T JUST SCREAM AT THIS ONE PERSON FOR ALL ETERNITY. CHRIST.

i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened.

THIS QUOTE IS SO IMPORTANT AND YET IT IS SO CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED. NOBODY TALKS ABOUT THIS QUOTE BUT EVERYBODY SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT IT.

THIS QUOTE BASICALLY ENCOMPASSES ONE OF THE MAIN MESSAGES OF THE ENTIRE BOOK, ONE OF THE CORE TENETS OF HAZEL AS A CHARACTER

SERIOUSLY I WILL NEVER SHUT UP ABOUT THIS QUOTE.
