UPDATE (PLEASE REBLOG WITH UPDATE IF YOU SEE IT):
afterwards cnn got back to the conversation with the lawyer BUT THEY CHANGED THE TOPIC // I made a post with some more information from the lawyer // It’s important to look at that link. you’ll learn that mike brown WAS innocent and the police had nothing on him so they went to the shop, after mike was already dead and the investigation into his death had begun, and that was when they first saw the tapes and were able to say essentially “this guy looks sorta like Mike Brown we can just say he was responding to a robbery report”
The owners never filed a robbery report, either did any of the store’s workersALSO IVE GIVEN THIS SOME THOUGHT AND CAN Y’ALL NOT LOOK INTO THIS TOO DEEPLY CUZ IM NOT TRYNA GET ARRESTED OR TO DISAPPEAR #PLEASEANDTHANKYOU #GODBLESS
Once and for all: The 10 myths about feminism that simply aren’t true
We’ve said this before, but it’s worth saying it again: Feminism advocates for and empowers women, and, yes, also men.

So did anyone hear about the officer who placed a woman under arrest for breastfeeding in NYC? She went to get on her bus, he pulled her back by the collar of her shirt, and as a result she dropped her 3 month old baby. He still placed her under arrest while her baby was lying on the concrete with a cracked skull. Her daughter died at the hospital while she was at the police station. He’s on PAID leave.
Things like this piss me the fuck off
As many frustrated fans have pointed out online, much of the official Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise leaves out Gamora, one of the movie’s five titular Guardians, played by Zoe Saldana. Though Gamora has an equal amount of screen time as her male colleagues, and Saldana is second-billed after Chris Pratt, Gamora is mysteriously absent in some egregious ways.
"I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged."
