An American Horror Story — Open Letter from Ferguson Protestors and Allies
"Ours were the bodies, the strange fruit that swung from the poplar trees. Ours were the bodies, the motionless forms stretched out in the street for 4.5 hours. Ours were the bodies, left to be seen to rot as warnings against being too uppity, too confident, too bold, too free. Ours were the bodies, served up as notice to remain humbly and quietly in our place, never to awaken America’s fear of Blackness.”
If I see anybodyEveryone I see wearing a Darren Wilson/Michael Brown costume on Halloween (and you fucking know there will be those people because there always are), I promise I will take a picture of you and shame you on the internet because you’re a bad person. I will also yell at you and kick your balls and/or shins.
Please. Don’t do this. Don’t let your friends do this.
