The less you eat, drink and buy books; the less you go to the theatre, the dance hall, the public house; the less you think, love, theorise, sing, paint, fence, etc., the more you save – the greater becomes your treasure which neither moths nor rust will devour – your capital. The less you are, the less you express your own life, the more you have, i.e., the greater is your alienated life, the greater is the store of your estranged being.

Reality is a bitch.

That isn’t Michael Brown. All I had to do was a quick Google search to find that one out. The guy in the foreground of the picture is Jodah Cain and the one in the back is his cousin Micus Ward, who are accused of killing Cain’s great-grandmother. They, unlike Michael Brown, are actual criminals, provided they’re guilty. Still not worthy of public execution, but they actually did do a horrible thing. Sit the fuck down, Tiffy.

How racist of a culture do we fucking live in that literally these fucks think they can take any black face and use it to say but look at how much of a thug he was? You do realize that not everyone thinks that all black people look alike? Like, how did you not expect this to be pointed out? Smh

When it has fooled as many people as it has id say it’s just truthful to say most black people look alike.

Yeah, no, you just didn’t bother to do your research. You were so ready for it to be Mike Brown that you found a Facebook post based on a lie (let me guess, you also think that Darren Wilson skull fracture x-ray was actually his, right?) and put it here. The media has done a great job of slandering Mike Brown’s character, despite the fact that he had a clean record, and racist assholes like you eat it up. If you want to take Wilson’s side, fine, but this kind of shit just shows that you have no idea what you’re talking about and that you’re just a racist, pure and simple.

Having a clean record doesn’t mean you aren’t a thug, it just means you’re a thug that hasn’t gotten arrested and charged yet. And considering we know he did drugs and other such things which are illegal and I’m convinced the clerk store video was him, since there isn’t much evidence to show it wasn’t him… Then yeah he’s a thug. A giant gross thug. :)

I love how you’re not even going to admit that you were wrong. You’re just going to keep going because you’re so desperate to justify Mike Brown’s murder. You fucking disgust me.

You’ve never heard of innocent until proven guilty? If all it takes is drug use to be considered a thug, then just about everyone I know is a thug.

Look at my face. I’ve done drugs and other illegal things. Would you call me a thug? Probably not. Though if I were black, all bets would be off.

Yes, the man in the convenience store video was Mike Brown. But he didn’t steal anything. The store clerks didn’t even call the police, because Brown paid for his cigars. The police came to them and released the video in an attempt to demonise Brown and justify Wilson’s actions. Even if Brown had stolen them, is stealing cigars a capital punishment worthy offence? No.

You’ve fallen for the police and media’s lies hook, line and sinker. You’re so desperate for the black man to have been a “bad guy” so that your racism is justified. I shoplifted as a teen. I’ve done drugs. I was not a good person in high school. I got in fights, defaced property, drank, didn’t look like I was going anywhere in life. If I’d been gunned down, do you really think I’d be painted as a thug by the media? I somehow doubt it.


thank you Victoria. really. thank you

I have these very deep feelings that white people who want to join black organizations are really just taking the escapist way to salve their consciences. By visibly hovering near us, they are “proving” that they are “with us.” But the hard truth is this isn’t helping to solve America’s racist problem. The Negroes aren’t the racists. Where the really sincere white people have got to do their “proving” of themselves is not among the black victims, but on the battle lines of where America’s racism really is - and that’s in their own home communities; America’s racism is among their own fellow whites. That’s where the sincere whites who really mean to accomplish something have got to work.

Let sincere whites go and teach non-violence to white people!
