In social issues class today our professor held up a black book and was like “this book is red” and we were all “no” and he said “yes it is” and we were just all “that’s not right” and he turned it around and the back cover was red and he said “Don’t tell somebody they’re wrong until you’ve seen things from their point of view”
that speaks to me
I want him to know he’s becoming the next Tumblr sensation
LITERALLY how can this petition possibly still be struggling to break 70k signatures?? are you against more measures to keep cops from killing black people in the streets? in their own homes? please signal boost this petition to all your social media sites.
you can sign from any country in the world btw it’s not USA exclusive. get on this please.
America has been consistent in it’s devaluation of black life. in it’s disgusting assumption of “inherent” black criminality and inhumanity. in it’s invalidation of black citizenship. in it’s use of excessive and racist police force to contain and tightly control black life. know this. what is happening in Ferguson,Missouri isn’t new but you should be angry and aware. this is unacceptable. we can’t bear any more of this. things have to change
White tumblr can understand that wearing a short skirt and high heels doesn't mean you were asking for it, but they can't understand that sagging your pants and saying nigga doesn't mean you deserved to be killed.
