Glendale, Missouri police officer removed from duty for Ferguson comments.
This makes four officers that I know of who were removed from duty due to actions and comments. You think it isn’t about race? That these officers are fair, not overly violent, and police evenly? When you have criminal justice scholars, professors, textbooks, and research telling you that the system is racist, you won’t believe it. People like you are the problem. Facts do not mean anything, when it forces you to re-examine your own prejudices. Cognitive dissonance is a bitch.
Tell me about a time where a white child was killed and black people made a hashtag mocking their death, a Halloween costume mocking their death, or a celebration of their death in any way shape or from. NEVER!!
Black pride has never been about hating white people, but white supremacy has always been about hating black people.
I’m so glad to see the younger generation waking up to this hypocrisy.
The homeowner at 22 one is killing me.
This meme makes me so angry because it’s so on-target.
I am screaming
this isn’t even funny to me it just makes me want to find the nearest baby boomer and deck them in the mouth
I reblog this every time because it always re-ignites my anger.
I feel you sphynx-prince.
White people are ghouls
This bothered me all morning. The idea that I live near people like this has been hanging over me for weeks and has literally leeched the energy and spirit from me.
But when I went to Google to learn more about what happened, it turned out that the bar was not advertising this. Instead, a customer wrote it and he was then thrown out the bar and banned for life.
The bar owner went on to say that he had a half-black son.
And that they ”drove through Ferguson yesterday and [he] … would be the last person to joke about Michael Brown.”
This alone doesn’t fix things. Someone still wrote those awful things on that sign. But hearing the rest of this story does make me feel a little less terrible.
Because what I really need to see more of right now is proof that people aren’t as awful as I’m starting to believe they are.
Seems a good time to reblog this one.
"If you are more outraged at poor black folks in Missouri looting stores than rich whites on Wall Street looting your future, you have been duped."
