keep your little mouth shut
So when Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry bring black girls on stage, dance with them, acknowledge their figures- it’s offensive and appropriating. But, when Nicki Minaj makes an entire video focusing around black girl’s asses and asserts her power, reduces these women to objects and flaunts her authority it’s YAAASSSSS NICKI SERVE IT. Is that because she’s black? So it’s okay for people of the same race to dance with each other but someone who does not share the same levels of melanin enters the picture, they’re doing something wrong? …idgi
didn’t it JUST come out like a few hours ago LOL give it time
not an execution. Dr. Baden clearly states that the head wounds were “likely the last of the bullets to hit him.”
also the bullets may have been fired from a distance (no gunshot residue found on brown’s body. clothes are still uncertain, though).
there is no such thing as an execution where headshots are fired last, and the shots are fired from afar.
this suggests the officer shot wildly into mike brown’s direction, firing into his side and continuing as mike brown began to fall.
from what i was taught a long time ago (i could totally be wrong), officers are generally trained to strike the torso, namely the chest. they are taught to fire with intent to neutralize a target, and so the chest area is the most effective means of achieving this.
since it was practically everywhere but the chest, i think it can be reasonably assumed the officer was firing out of fear or panic. something psychologically removed him from his practice.
the positioning of the bullet that struck into his eye, exiting his jaw and into the collarbone, suggests mike brown may have been running forward. this is something the article suggests as well, but if it were the last of the bullets fired, i’m sure brown would’ve started to stagger.
so i imagine what happened was the officer, panicked because he’s an idiot, fired as many times as he could to make his panic go away. you only need to fire once into someone; either to neutralize or to get the point across.
6 suggests this man was irrationally terrified. it’s the kind of shooting you see people do in fucking zombie movies.
anyway the whole reason i say this is ‘cause i don’t think this was a truly malicious thing. i think this is just the embodiment of the disconnect between white america and the ‘hood. white people are privileged and well-connected; they can’t fathom the mindset required to survive in another social environment. and so they assume minorities are simply different, or somehow misguided.
to assume “this was an execution” creates an environment of war where there needs to be an environment of understanding.
i cannot, however, blame anyone for thinking that violence is a proper response to this. i’d feel the same way if i were watching dominicans getting killed by cops every 2 weeks, tbh.

my profile pictures are often things i want to eat.
about as mainstream as it gets. presents missouri articles with the same angle as tumblr has thus far blogged it, such as http://boingboing.net/2014/08/14/video-of-ferguson-police-gassi.html
in the link above, one of the first of the drudge report articles listed, the media is shown being targeted by police. a tear gas cannister is unmistakably fired upon film crew, landing feet away from them.
we are the mainstream media.
MAINSTREAM MEDIA WILL SAY THAT THE PROTESTERS STARTED THE VIOLENCE ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THIS IS NOT THE CASE AS PROVEN BY THE VIDEO ABOVE.
please watch this before its taken down
note: “open fire” does not mean live rounds of ammunition with lethal intent in the case of this video. however, rubber bullets and tear gas are being used. and it is worth watching to understand the current state of activism in the US, and what occurs when you do protest in this country.
also important: the mainstream media will not say this. we are the mainstream media. do not give power to illusions where you can give power to yourself.
