- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
Seems a good time to reblog this one.
"If you are more outraged at poor black folks in Missouri looting stores than rich whites on Wall Street looting your future, you have been duped."
I passed through Afro Punk yesterday and I loved every minute of my short time there. The energy is uncanny and genuine. Beautiful ppl everywhere but more importantly there were stunning BLACK PEOPLE everywhere. The energy was electric. Wish I could’ve went again today but things happened. For all those that are there, enjoy it for the both of us. Thanks a million.
