What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.
after they bury Michael Brown today
let us remember that the fight for justice is not over
please do not forget Ferguson
please keep Michael Brown on your mind, his family and friends in your hearts, and the city of Ferguson in your prayers
let us continue to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters fighting for justice & peace
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
Robin Williams’ passing is a reminder that those who make us laugh the most are usually fighting the biggest demons.
