Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke

An American Horror Story — Open Letter from Ferguson Protestors and Allies

cheetosjapalenos:

"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 you haven’t read this yet, you should.

So in New Hampshire, the annual Pumpkinfest was interrupted with bloody riots and…well…twitter answered the call. 


What a wonderful response to people who post that stupid ‘I stand by you Darren Wilson’ badge.

I wonder how Bill O’Reilly will defend this? This is what white privilege looks like. They’re taking down a fucking stop sign and get labeled rowdy, while protestors in Ferguson are rioters. I don’t want to hear another person tell me “well if you do what the police say, they won’t bother you.” Where is the tear gas? Where are the pointed guns? Why can’t Black Americans get the benefit of the  doubt? #rhetorical Someone said “if this was blacks.” This would never be Blacks, ever. A Black man couldn’t lean on a stop sign without police cars swarming! #amerikka #ferguson #whiteisright search pumpkin fest on Twitter for more commentary

If I see anybody  Everyone 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.

One box store, two standards of constitutional protections.

Context: 1.) Open Carry proponents enter WalMart with assault rifles and are provided their second amendment protections. 2.) Activists with HandsUpUnited are arrested at a WalMart after raising their hands symbolically above their heads in protest of the slaying of Ohio WalMart shopper John Crawford.

repeat after me:

there are white people suffering in the world

but the white people who are suffering are not suffering because they are white

Real Christians aren’t assholes

In High School I had a friend who was super religious, her whole family was. Despite this, she was pro-marriage equality, pro-choice, and never once tried to convert me or make me feel bad about my own religious decisions (I was and still am an agnostic). She was always kind, and treated everyone with respect, regardless of race, religion, or orientation. For her the heart and soul of being a Christian was to love others and treat others with dignity. She was a real Christian. 



REMINDER: DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE USE JESUS AS AN EXCUSE TO BE AN ASSHOLE EVER. NEVER.

I’m a Christian and this is how the fucking religion works. Love. Not hate.

Grew up religious, Lost religion in my 20’s. Atheist in my 30’s.
However, I believe Jesus was a real man. And, honestly, I love who he was.
He was a philosopher and a hippy. He chilled with the people everyone else thought were lesser than. Prostitutes, criminals, the poor. He basically just wandered around encouraging people to love others no matter what, to stop being so fucking obsessed with money and be charitable. He also spoke out against the corruption of the church.
And, like so many people that stand up for unpopular causes, the original hippy who spoke the most common of sense was destroyed for his message. Somehow all of this got lost and I’m pretty damn sure his heart would break to see what some Christians have used his name to justify. 
So, yeah, Jesus was the cat’s meow. 
On a related note, my family are decent, loving Christians. Religion just ain’t for me. 

^ SO MUCH YES TO ALL OF THIS <3

SO SO SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH YES TO ALL OF THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
