My mom’s take on what’s going on in Ferguson (via actualbanshee)
Your mom isn’t wrong. That’s why it’s so important to keep the signal going. Too many are silenced with lies and fear and if they cannot speak then we have to do it for them.

I get this joke.
If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)
Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.
Also vaccines are only like 90% effective, so people who get them aren’t all actually immune.
Also immunosuppressed due to steroids, also seriously pissed off at anyone who doesn’t vaccinate without a damn good medical reason. And “I’m scared of autism” doesn’t fucking count as a medical reason because I’m autistic too and even the worst of autism is better than what happens when people don’t vaccinate.
I am posting this to spread awareness to folks down here on the ground. A white anarchist punched me in the face as I was running from gun shots. Before he hit me he told me to ” sit the fuck down” . The KKK is out here. There are white man throwing bombs and giving them to youth . Spread the word because its about to be night fall here in #ferguson. Please stand in solidarity with us even if just from your homes and computer screens. We are doing this for us.
the fact that people have donated over $8000+ to a MURDERER who is already on PAID LEAVE fucking disgusts and terrifies me
Stop white people
"Support Officer Darren Wilson" = "I’m a racist asshole who wants to give a nice big bonus to the guy who killed an unarmed black kid because that’s what I secretly wish I could do".
Fuck literally every person who donated even a penny.
Reactions to racist media reports about Michael Brown having marijuana in his system at the time of his death.
White dude in St. Louis named Kevin Miner was wanted for burglary.
He eluded police officers until they conducted a search of a resident’s home and found him.
He attacked both officers, breaking one cop’s hand. The media even alludes to Miner being forced to “fight back” against the police because of how he was being apprehended!
Miraculously, the cops managed not to punch him in the face repeatedly, put him in a chokehold, or shoot him six times including once in the face and once in the head.
He, in fact, barely had a scratch on him.
The next time someone says to you:
"BUT IT’S NOT ABOUT RACE (Patent Pending)!"
Throw your tea dead in their face Dominique Deveraux-style and pump on away from them like Naomi Campbell.
No justice no peace.
Chaos in Ferguson. Sunday night, part 4
- no, this isn’t over;
- no, these aren’t from earlier in the week;
- no, everything isn’t alright now;
- no, the police haven’t stopped brutalizing peaceful protesters;
- no, police haven’t intervened to stop the looting;
- no, police haven’t responded to emergency 911 calls for people injured by rubber bullets or children hit by cars;
- no, michael brown’s shooter still has not faced any consequences for murdering an unarmed teenager 9 days ago
The camera angle they never show on TV
Oh, my mistake.
Luke Woodham, 16, WHITE. Murdered two students at his school AND his own mother. Now in prison.
Kip Kinkel, 15, WHITE. Murdered two students at his school AND both of his parents. Now in prison.
Eric Hainstock, 15, WHITE. Murdered one student at his school. Now in prison.
TJ Lane, 17, WHITE. Murdered three students and told their parents that he masturbates to the memory at his trial. Now in prison.
James Holmes, 24, WHITE. Murdered twelve people at a premier of Batman. Now in prison.
Timothy McVeigh, 27, WHITE. Murdered 168 people and injured 600 more when he blew up a building in Oklahoma. Was executed in 2001, but only after a fair trial and appeals.
Not to mention all of the serial killers, school shooters and spree killers who are touted as being “misunderstood” and were given the basic liberty of a fair trial even though the majority of them committed crimes so abhorrent that I won’t write about them on this blog.
But you’re a right. A black, unarmed 18 year old boy who ALLEGEDLY held up a store deserved to be shot while he was on the ground. And he sure as fuck deserved to be laid in the middle of the street, uncovered for over 4 hours. And maybe because I’m a mother too but my mind automatically goes to his mother, she deserved to see her baby being treated like that right?
speak on it!
This is quickly becoming my catch phrase: Fuck white people. We deserve to get shot over a cigar. Over mistaken identities. Over suspicions. They fucking kill busloads full of people. They get a fair trial. A white motherfucker could blow up a building full of orphans and he’ll at least make it to prison. Black dude? Nah. You’re leaving that scene in a body bag and your family is going to prison. Then the cops will shoot your damn dog. Fuck white people.
The owner called and said he didn’t steal anything.
The timestamp from the videos that white people are using as evidence? June. Two months before he was shot. Cops said the robbery happened on the same day as the shooting. Get the fuck out of here.
^^^^ OH DAMN!!!
LOOK AT THE LIES THE POLICE ARE PUTTING OUT 6 DAYS LATER!!!!!!
I’M SO OVER THIS BS!!!
Imma reiterate this:

A short-tailed form of the popular sail-backed repto-mammal Dimetrodon.
The soft tissue and integument on this depiction are divine. It really sells this strange creature as a far-flung relative of mammals rather than some big lizard with a sail.
This is the best gif of all time
