White Police of Forney Texas pull over innocent Black Mother and four Black children at gunpoint (because they are entitled and empowered to do “as” they please, “when” they please).

Listen to the blatant lie being told at the 1:31 mark of the video:

Michael Jackson’s medical records from January 1984 show that he had recently been diagnosed with discoid lupus.
Discoid lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body fights against itself, and Jackson’s expressed itself in hair loss, scalp infections, pleurisy in his lungs, skin rashes, skin lesions, joint pain and it would seem his vitiligo was also an expression of his lupus. Vitiligo is a common side autoimmune disease to many sufferers of lupus.
So when people tell you that Michael Jackson bleached himself into his vitiligo, ask them how he managed to get his medical records from 1984 to reflect that he had been suffering from a more severe form of autoimmune disease all along, and if he faked his vitiligo, did he also fake his lupus back then to the extent he had to take medication to ensure his pleurisy wouldn’t return, medication to stem the hair and skin issues, and also that he was already seeing a rhuematologist for joint issues all the way back then, during the height of his fame?
At some point people need to accept that they were very very wrong about him.

Michael Brown’s dad before the burial. 
The emotion and all of the sweat…. shit is hard to look at, even if its only a picture

I didn’t want to reblog this because it’s hard to look at, but people SHOULD see it.
We SHOULD see a father mourning his teenage son.
We SHOULD see how a killing like Mike’s can take a toll on not only a community, but a family.
It’s as easy for young black men to become martyrs as it is for them to become victims. They can never just be humans. 
We can never just be.

‘Hands Up, Don’t Ship!’ Minneapolis UPS Workers Protest Shipments to Missouri Police

A dozen part-time UPS workers in Minneapolis took protest action on the job August 22, after discovering ties between Missouri law enforcement and a company, Law Enforcement Targets, whose shipments we handle each day.

Some of us removed the company’s packages from trucks that would deliver them to law enforcement. Others, in solidarity, refused to ferry these packages to their intended trailers.

Others posed with a sign reading “#handsupdontship.” The phrase “hands up, don’t shoot” has come to symbolize protest over the police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.

We decided we could not be silent while our work was contributing to the militarized violence that police are directing at Ferguson residents in the aftermath of Brown’s death.

This is high-stakes activism. These workers are at risk losing their jobs for this. Well done, UPS folks, for sticking to your principles.

This is where unity works.  The powers use Racism to divide, we must see past the games and stand together.

yo if these people get fired can we start a fund for them?

Let’s keep an eye on them. If white people can fund murders we can help out each other
