I like straight up people. I want you to tell me how you feel when you feel it.

is this beautiful solidarity too much for you, anon?
(also, i feel bad for you.)
Being black affected one’s life span, insurance rates, blood pressure, lovers, children, every dangerous hour of every dangerous day. There was absolutely no way not to be black without ceasing to exist. But it frequently seemed that there was no way to be black, either, without ceasing to exist.

oh wow relevance
Niggas try to play him about that interview overlooking the fact that a woman was almost raped if it wasn’t for him
& somehow cops managed without a tank & tear gas. #ferguson #mikebrown #policebrutality #racism
What the FUCK
White people riot all the damn time. UNC wins? Riot. UNC loses? Riot. Penn State fires a guy for covering for a pedophile for years? RIOT RIOT RIOT!
But too many black people gather, even peacefully, and here comes the tear gas and rubber(coated) bullets.
Fucking kids care more about each other than we do
This is so… I… Can’t handle…!!!!
@tabithalou: This what they not showing you on the media. These young men cleaning up after the riot. #Ferguson
This also is hugely important. There’s a fixation in stories. A general pessimism about the human race. But I think there’s plenty of evidence for our giving nature. That bad, bad horrible things happen and there’s ALWAYS people willing to stand up and make things better. Across generations and cultures and nations. No matter how bad things get, there’s never not somebody looking out for their kids, their neighbors, their community. And that kind of solidarity pushes us through.
Even if it’s something as simple and seemingly small as picking up the trash after a major confrontation. That too is important.
