ferguson rly teaches a lesson in the lengths police will go to protect each other and white supremacy. they’d rather do all this than arrest one man. 

because he is a cop, and he’s white.

they ‘have each other’s backs’ so doggedly and determinedly that they would sacrifice a town of black people for one white cop

A Democratic Missouri state senator representing parts of Ferguson who tweeted multiple times “fuck you,” at Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon defended her choice of words on Fox News Monday saying she did so because she was tear-gassed for three days.

“The reason why I used profane language is because he has allowed us to get tear-gassed for three days,” Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said. “I am one of his senators in his party and he was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting teargassed and shot at. And yes, anyone who’s going to get teargassed deserves to say a few ‘F’ bombs here and there.”

“I represent my constituents, not Gov. Nixon,” the senator said. “He has been absent from the minority community his entire career and only comes before us when it is politically expedient for him. Or when he’s running for office, and because he has been outside of this community…let me tell you this, and this is important for your audience to know. He has still yet to come to ground zero. Yet to come to ground zero. He’s been in Florissant, he’s been in Normandy, but he has not spoken to the victims of the crisis we are dealing with and that is why I have called him a coward.”

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?]

"Solidarity is an act, a series of acts, a lifetime of choices and self-education, a deeply felt human compassion, NOT a button on your goddamn denim vest. Or, even really a matter of identity, when it comes right down to it."

Black protesters telling off white agitators. (x)

LOL
I know who this guy is
He’s one of the bob avakian followers from the revolutionary communist bookstore I interned at. They’re all like…old white ppl who love agitating police in the name of communist revoltion. Fucking assholes obsessed with promoting their brand.

Why am I not surprised. What has everyone been saying about these garbage white “revolutionaries.” You’ve got anarchists and the RCP (and possibly the KKK) trying to weaponise protesters and incite an all-out confrontation on one end, and then the police who are just looking for an excuse and are already provocative enough on their own.

It all must be a game to them, or an exercise in abstraction. Because I know they must be aware at least subconsciously that they are in little danger of retaliation. If they are hurt, it would be circumstantial or accidental; the black citizens would be brutalised.

"They’re hurting our kids," the white man tells the Black man. No, they aren’t hurting white kids. White people need to have a seat.

white devils.
