  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

OUR LIVES MATTER by Jellykah. amfranklin.com

Our Lives Matter. Don’t let them convince you otherwise. I do this for my brothers. my parents. my love. my sisters. I do this for all of you. We shouldn’t have to fear for our lives every time we leave our homes. Just because our skin is enriched with more melanin. We shouldn’t have to be afraid to ask for help because we’re not sure if we’ll be gunned down in the process. We shouldn’t be murdered in cold blood and have our bodies left out in the street for hours while they try to justify killing us. I do this for Emmett Till. That was only 59 years ago. How much has changed? I do this for Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant. I do this for Jordan Davis who was gunned down 5 mins from where I used to live. I do this for Michael Brown. For Ezell Ford and Dante Parker who were both unarmed and gunned down by police SINCE Michael Brown. I do this for Renisha McBride and the countless other women of color who are mistreated and killed all the time. This is real. Don’t let them continue to devalue us. OUR LIVES MATTER. Stand up. Fight Back. Grow. Learn. Listen. Teach. OUR LIVES MATTER.

Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.

During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.
Our loss, U.S.A….

If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.

um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues
aaaand she had a pet cheetah

You heard it right folks, the FBI considered free breakfasts for poor children to be the most dangerous internal threat to the country. Literally the kind of thing Jesus would do was the most dangerous threat to the country.

Yup.
