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!
these people are the real heroes. not the military, not politicians, not the Hollywood actors. they risked their lives and livelihoods to challenge white supremacy and institutionalized racism.
Hey White People: A Kinda Awkward Note to America by #Ferguson Kids
Six black kids from #Ferguson, MO bluntly and sarcastically educate white America about the racist reality in 2014. Recruited from the very block where unarmed black teen Michael Brown was gunned down by a white police officer, these kids ranging in age from 6 to 13 years old, use sometimes uncomfortable humor to show white people the continued racism their generation faces. Armed ONLY with statistics (hands up, don’t shoot) these articulate and adorable kids are not having it while much of white America would rather pretend racism is over.
Sporting charity benefit T-shirts that read “Racism Is Not Over. But I’m
Over Racism.” these kids from #Ferguson are helping raise funds for five different anti-racism causes. For every tee or hoodie sold at

NO SERIOUSLY. IF YOU HAVE NO SEEN THIS TAKE…3 MINUTES.
Please. This is so great.
reblogging because the message is important and necessary but please to not support the fckh8 organization because even tho they claim to be all about “equality for all” that apparently doesnt apply to asexuals and pansexuals
reblogging for the above commentary
but also, as someone pointed out on my facebook, how come only $5 of the profits made from these t-shirt are going to charity? that doesn’t add up, especially when there have been teespring campaigns which donated all of the proceeds to Ferguson organizations.
it seems to me fckh8 is trying to profit off the appearance of being more actively anti-racist then they actually are and using Ferguson kids in the process.
That ^ is exactly what they’re doing.
Also they’re not actually a non-profit organization or charity. They’re a for-profit T-shirt company that scored an F by the BBB. They are absolutely trying to profit off of those children.
Just leaving this link here too. Fuck FCKH8.
reblogging for additional commentary!

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
50 Trippiest Drug Hallucinations in Films:
The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
Well I guess someone has to catapult the propaganda…
