It is safe to acknowledge that police disproportionately profile black people in this country on a daily basis but I really hope this doesn’t turn into a race issue.
At this point, it’s police vs the people. Police have made themselves the enemy of humanity, that should be the focus. Don’t let them divide us like they have in the past and don’t ever forget we have the numbers. Where there is unity, there is strength!

@getinvolvedyoulivehere- I need you to stop. Stop for a second and absorb what I am going to say. This isn’t a matter of perspective. This is about ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. Okay? Here we go.
It IS a race based issue. The friends of Mike Brown said verbatim that they were just walking back to their homes together and a police car chased them down the street, blocked the way out, and GRABBED MIKE BY HIS NECK and held him and shot him. Not once, not twice, or several times, but MUCH MORE THAN SEVERAL.
Then how did the police respond? THE POLICE LITERALLY BLOCKADED THE ENTIRE AREA AND THE GOVERNMENT DECLARED FERGUSON A ‘TERRORIST STATE’ AND SENT MILITIA INTO PEOPLE’S NEIGHBORHOODS. They actually fired the EXACT SAME tear gas cannisters the militia used IN GAZA AGAINST PALESTINIANS AGAINST THESE PEOPLE IN FERGUSON. THEY DECLARED FERGUSON A ‘NO FLY ZONE.’ Then you know what the media did? The media started painting Mike Brown as a THUG opposed to the super sweet boy he was that LITERALLY didn’t even want to join the football team because he didn’t want to ‘hurt other people.’
There was literally a live stream where a cop said, “You animals, BRING IT ON!” live on camera. A police offer also literally ASSAULTED and HELD DOWN a black man casually walking in Ferguson the other day. Then if you saw the stream last night, you literally heard and saw the police saying that they weren’t allowed to record. THEY BLACK LISTED THE FERGUSON HASH TAG ON TWITTER AND PREVENTED THE MEDIA FROM REPORTING WHAT WAS GOING ON.
You know what happened when people tried to call the Ferguson police department? THEY CALLED US MONKEYS. THEY LITERALLY CALLED US MONKEYS. You know what happened when some people looted some stores? IT FUELED THIS MASSIVE RACIAL STEREOTYPED THAT WASHED OVER THE MEDIA AND PAINTED US AS SOME ANGRY BLACK ANIMALS THAT AREN’T PRACTICING MLK’S SENTIMENTS.
This doesn’t happen with white protestors. Doesn’t happen with West Boro Baptist Church or at abortion clinics in super white dominated areas.
Stop it. It isn’t just about the US being a police state. THIS ISSUE IS ABOUT RACE THAT’S FUNNELED THROUGH A POLICE STATE SYSTEM.
IT IS about race. IT IS about race. IT IS about race.
I also have fucking receipts. For everything. GO THROUGH my Mike Brown and Ferguson tags. GO THROUGH my police and police brutality tags.
Don’t you DARE try to say that it’s about the police being against everyone. It is NOT. The entire SYSTEM is built on an institution of slavery and Mike Brown’s situation is reflected IN THE NUANCES AND BETWEEN THE LINES.
They LITERALLY LEFT HIS BODY DEAD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET AND A GIRL WAS JUST FUCKING KILLED YESTERDAY FOR POSTING ABOUT MIKE BROWN.
Open your fucking eyes. Please STOP being so willfully ignorant. Stop it.
WE CAN NOT HAVE UNITY WHEN THE SYSTEM ITSELF DIVIDES US.
Stop. Evaluate yourself. Read, read it again. Evaluate yourself again and learn and understand.
