Today’s Gender of the day is: Decline
Today in Solidarity: Family of Mike Brown join protesters outside of STL Courthouse, demanding the immediate arrest of their son’s killer, Officer Darren Wilson.
The grand jury has yet to charge Darren Wilson with anything. Mike Brown’s killer is still a free man, being paid by the taxpayers of the very community he’s terrorized. #staywoke #farfromover
Gonna head home next weekend and get my refund card and ur damn straight imma be buying some figurines as well as getting a piercing yeeeee

it was rly boring and had no emotional impact on me
like i thought all the characters were really flat and boring, and overall like…it didn’t really ADD anything to the story of rapunzel that everyone already knows, and i feel like thats a big part of making a story that is basically a retelling of a story known by everyone
but like tangled brought nothing to the table. like it isnt HORRIBLE its just really disappointing
its like eating a plate full of white bread. i mean, you can do it. you can eat that. but you could just eat something else.
benedict coochiecrunch is ugly and his family was directly involved in the slave trade
Just think. His great, great, great grandpappy might have raped your great, great, great grandmammy. Isn’t that a cute thought?
Out of everything you could have said to try and ‘defeat’ this statement with, you have to grasp for straws and make some rape joke to try and down play what they said
Like how much do you lack in common knowledge and basic human emotions to not know you aren’t doing anything but making a fool of yourself because youre stanning do hard for this ugly mayo stain like try harder
Ugh, fuck you white girl, did you arrive to this planet yesterday?
Cause from history white people really, really, vilified big lips,
that cartoon aired till 1968
Our lips are constantly made a joke, along with everything else, but I get it, if it’s on a white girl, regardless, it’s beautiful, if it’s on us, it’s ugly and unwanted. It’s better to paint white girl with black features and call her beautiful, then show a black girl in all her natural beauty and call her beautiful. You can’t just raise the black girl. fuck you
If you still support FCKH8 even after all the biphobia, fat phobia, sexism, transphobia and NOW trying to profit from Mike Brown’s death.
I got news for you: you’re a shitty activist

Ferguson protesters gather for highway shutdown.
The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover
My people getting it!
The city of Ferguson deserves this hornets nest. The last tweet is 100 percent true, they’ve lost the ability to govern, and the disrespect they’ve shown to the citizenry is obvious and beyond contempt.
Maybe, just maybe, the problem would be solved by more black people choosing a career in law enforcement than complaining about problems they are not willing to try and solve themselves.
Racist cops won’t stop being racist cops, but they can be replaced with a new generation, it’s not easy but damn it it’s the only democratic and logical way to move forward.
What is stopping these people taking up the call to protect civilians?
So basically because not everyone wants to be a cop it’s our fault that they’re a problem.
Like what the fuck is this logic, is complaining to want racist chills and black folks killed? You see they only had three black cops there-do you honestly think with such a large black population they were the only ones that wanted to be cops?
No, I’m saying it would be an almost instant solution to have a fair representation of society in the police force. Not everyone wants to become a cop, great, isn’t that the problem in the first place? Good law abiding people do not want to represent their communities and yet it is someone elses fault that that is happening?
The question that needs to be asked is why are there so few black cops? It’s pretty easy to become a cop in the UK, expected education achievements are pretty low. If the case is inherent racism in the testing system then the aptitude tests need to be made anonymous, but judging by the discussion it seems like it’s “because not everyone wants to be a cop”.
Well shit, if you see there’s a problem and you’re not going to be a cop, then who do you think is?
It’s that simple in t he UK, okay great stop comparing it to the USA as if they’re the same region and that the requirements are the same. People can be turned away for being black or any other race or than white unless they fill a certain racial quota. The question isn’t why aren’t more black people becoming cops but why are we trying so hard to tell them that do they can’t be with every turn. You really think it’s easy to want to become a cop when you’re a black youth who’s constantly misjudged at every turn by said police officers?
Yes it’s their fucking fault, how the hell is it our fault that cops don’t want to do their job to protect and serve? We can replace them but this wont guarantee that we get the requirements or people that we want. Like seriously, are you seriously going to tell me that the cops can’t be blamed and we’re begging to be abused by them-because that’s basically what you’re saying when claiming it’s our fault.
It’s great when the black community gets involved in things-but saying that’s an instant solution to our problems is delusional. It’s been a month since Mike Brown was murdered and despite all the protests-where’s Darren Wilson? Not in jail like he should be. Our efforts don’t always get results and insisting that it’s our fault because we try to achieve careers we have our hearts set on other than being political-and even those who do usually can’t get past the racial discrimination, and can’t find the actual people we need is really ridiculous.
Right, seeing as the head of the police department in the community I live in is of Asian Ethnicity due to the fact that there’s a huge Asian minority in the region and the police is very mixed and only armed with pepper spray and handcuffs, I see your problem. It all leads down to the fact that yankees don’t know how to live in a multicultural community without shooting each other.
Over here, respected members of the community go into the police force as a an honour to serve their community, I guess things over in ‘Murica are quite different because it’s always someone else’s fault that nobody is representing you. If you want representation, you stand up and represent yourself, and guess what, it works just fine over here.
