Do you know how much I would know about what’s happening in Ferguson if it wasn’t for social media? Nothing. Zero. 

Ditto.

Jokes aside I feel like we all need to take a minute to thank the people on the streets literally risking their lives bringing us this information with their cell phone video cameras. Furgeson is on media lockdown right now and without the people braving tear gas to bring us this information we’d all be in the dark.

SOOOOO. I just called the Ferguson Police Department.

Before I could say ONE word, this lady says “You wannabe revolutionaries are wasting your fucking time”.

whats the number

314-522-3100

I asked them what they are doing to protect the lives of People of Color in the city. They told me they did not know and could not answer my question.

A POLICE DEPARTMENT DOESNT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO PROTECT PEOPLE OF COLOR IN THEIR CITY.

”The state is currently spending five times more for the education for a white child than it is fitting to educate a colored child. That means better textbooks for that child than for that child. I say that’s a shame, but my opponent says today is not the day for whites and coloreds to go to the same college. To share the same campus. To walk into the same classroom. Well, would you kindly tell me when that day is gonna come? Is it going to come tomorrow? Is it going to come next week? In a hundred years? Never? No, the time for justice, the time for freedom, and the time for equality is always, is always right now!”

White ppl (and quite a few black ppl) really outchea on social media saying this has absolutely nothing to do with race.

*stares around my room like I’m in the twilight zone*

Yes, politics and money come into play, but you seriously think race has no part?! You really…

White “allies”

yup.

But if it was “white power” she’d be racist and probably beat. But you know, it’s whatever.

Black power ≠ white power
Black power = Resistance. A response to the abuse and subjugation of white supremacy. Recognizing the humanity of Blackness. Black people uplifting themselves from the margins. A rallying cry of self-love, self-actualization and autonomy. Black power does not mean the subjugation and abuse or torment of white people. It has never meant this and it never will. Show me the examples of “Black power” chants stripping whites of anything.
white power = white supremacy, subjugation, abuse and torment of everyone not white. Anywhere chants of “white power” ring, hatred follows behind. Look no further than the people who scream “white power” and why they say it.
This stuff is not hard to understand or figure out.
The fact that a white woman is in that Ferguson crowd unharmed is proof positive that a chant of “Black power” is not about dehumanizing, abusing, torturing or subjugating white people. Black people are not even in the position to do that. 
On the other hand, ask yourself, what would happen to a lone Black person in a crowd of white supremacists chanting “white power”? Would that black person be safe?
The ignorant think “Black power” means enacting to white people what “white power” has enacted to Black people.

You are not truly an ally if you use your privilege to restrain the person you are trying to help.
