I’ve been following the situation in #Ferguson very closely. I’ve made a conscious effort to share as much information as possible. To be completely honest with you, I’m in shock. I’m not surprised, I’ve felt this coming for a long time, but I am shocked. I am afraid. A war has been waged on black and brown bodies and we have no protection. Our enemy is the judge, jury, and executioner. And in this system, we are never innocent. Even our children. Our young boys are seen as dangerous men and our girls as threats to society. When walking down the street becomes a violent crime punishable by death simply because you’re a PoC, it’s time to take a stand. When the number of Black mothers burying their children is catching up to the number of Black mothers sending their children to school, it’s time to take a stand. When you’re more afraid of the ones who swore to “Serve and Protect”, it’s time to take a stand. I stand in solidarity with the citizens of #Ferguson. #DontShoot #MediaBlackout #Racism #BlackUnity
