What they won’t show you on CNN tonight: Ferguson residents line a parade of roses down W Florissant, leading to where Mike Brown was taken from this world. #staywoke #powerful #insolidarity 

I had such a beautiful conversation with another woman entrenched in radical politics about being viewed as the tough girl who doesn’t need help - but what when we do? When we talk about our personal struggles with abuse, disordered eating, relationship troubles, and depression, will we be seen as a dangerous liability? Will people view us as less strong - as less able to guide other women younger than us, our age, or even educate our elders about our experiences? Will people see our tears as a sign of weakness and dismiss our anger because we’re unable or unwilling to hide our sadness and the vulnerability we fight tooth and nail to overcome? Who really wants to see us thrive and who can’t wait to see us falter?

No words. She was also with Talib who was told by police to keep his hands up or they’ll blow his brains out. And some resident protestors are exhausted with everything and saying that street medics told them they’re experiencing a subcategory of PTSD.

So.

Yeah.

I’m weary.

laughing at how CNN went into one of the looted businesses in Ferguson and spoke to the owner. the reporter started asking all these leading questions that were clearly setting up answers that expressed anger that their businesses were broken into. 

The owner was like “actually I just want justice for Mike Brown im not worried about material things”

1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson

1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson

1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson

1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson

1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]

"Why don’t you criticize [men/straight people/straight men] more??" is not actually a response to "Could you please stop hurting bi women?”

You’re not a bad person for the ways you tried to kill your sadness.

Girl Maces Dude For Being Rude (by RuthlessTelevison)

"Signed, sealed, delivered! "

There’s probably a conversation to be had here about white men and their belief that their needs and wants are more important than everyone else’s (in this particular case Black women) and white men not taking the anger of Black women seriously.

yup. 

Thank god this is backt

"Signed, sealed, delivered" is the best part of this video…
