As someone who struggled  when reading out loud as a child and still struggles from time to time, I find this situation disrespectful!! Why not help someone instead of poking fun at someone’s struggle.  #norespect (pic reposted from @naturallyfashionable)

These tweets (and one retweet) are from my friend Ryan, a journalist who has been on the ground in Ferguson for the past few days. (His Twitter account is here, and it’s a great source of updates on the situation there   [x]).

I just wanted to remind everybody that while spreading word about Michael Brown’s unjust murder and the horrifying events of the night of August 14, 2014, please do not oversimplify or ignore the complexities of the situation.

Some journalists in the town have been doing what journalists do: focusing on all the negative aspects about the community to try and make it look like a hell-hole in order to sell their own pictures and stories, and basically all many of them want to do is further their own careers. But focusing on all that negativity only paints the picture of one side of the story, ignoring a lot of other important things going on there.

Please do not fall prey to the media’s game. Anger at the actions of the police in Ferguson is totally justified, but in the midst of that we cannot allow the people who are living with the situation every day to be dehumanized. Despite all this tragedy and chaos going on around them, they’re still a community and in many ways they’re pulling through all of it together. They want peace. Anyone looting or burning things down is a very small portion of the community. The whole story is so much bigger.

A story doesn’t need tear gas to be interesting. We need to hear every side of this story, not just the horrific parts.

TL:DR: please don’t fall prey to media attempts to dehumanize and oversimplify the situation in ferguson!!

2006 Kathryn Johnston white Police Terrorism and Murder of a 92-Year Old Elder

On November 21, 2006, (3) white, apparently smallhat (aka white so-called jews named gary smith, gregg junnier, and arthur tesler) Atlanta police officers perjured themselves in a search warrant affidavit, violently broke into our 92-year old elder Johnston’s home (which they had mistaken for a drug dealer’s), murdered her in a barrage of 39 bullets, handcuffed her, and left her to bleed to death in her living room while they planted marijuana in her basement.  After realizing they were in the wrong house, they threatened an informant to lie about the whole thing so they could cover up their mistakes.  They were later convicted of their crimes and given light sentences.

Pics of the (3) smallhats police officers that murdered Sister Kathryn Johnston

I never imagined this for myself but I think I’m on the verge of taking my natural hair in a new direction. Yes I’m talking locs! As a kid my mom had locs and she always attempted to persuade me to get them too, but that just wasn’t my style at the time, so I refused. As someone who loves to…
