This was how the myth of Black criminality started, for the record. After the abolition of slavery, a lot of states made laws targeting Black people specifically, and then put them on chain gangs to get free labor from them.

Oh, and the US is still disproportionately incarcerating Black people and private prisons are making huge amounts off them.

This is one of those pieces of information I wish had like 200 million notes on tumblr.

Yeah, I believe that black people are twice as likely to be arrested and convicted for committing the same crimes as a white person. Draw your own conclusions.

Reblogging this because everytime in real life I’ve said Slavery didn’t really end I’ve been dismissed as crazy.

I’ll reblog this every time it comes up on my dash. People need to know!

So don’t tell me to get over slavery or say that was in the past when black and latinos are locked up…..in alarming numbers…..

honestly, i’ve been saving my thighs for other tattoos because i’m a very visual, particular person. i was originally going to get tattoos solely based on aesthetics and designs i thought would be pretty to show off. but something happened.

i’ve always been interested in intersectional feminism and deconstructing power systems based on race, gender, sexuality, class, etc. so i impulsively got this design (original illustration by alexander heir, who runs DEATH/TRAITORS). after weeks of being frustrated by reading about what’s going on in ferguson (the media’s focus on blaming michael brown and painting protestors as if their provocation by a militarized police force wasn’t a valid reason to be taking action), i decided to get this. it pushed me over the edge after consistently keeping up with the cases of trayvon martin, renisha mcbride, kimani gray, oscar grant, eric garner, jonathan farrell, aiyana jones (8 year old killed by a detroit SWAT team), john crawford, and so on. then i thought about that piece of shit kid ethan couch, who killed people in a drunk driving accident and got away with it because of affluenza. i read various articles about how the media portrayed white serial killers, mass murderers, and terrorists better than black victims of police brutality. i also recently started reading “the new jim crow” (better late than never) and that stirred even more fury in me, which i didn’t think was possible.

learning about social justice issues turns you into a very angry person, and rightly so. knowing more means understanding the cruel reality of the world we live in. all these events are not proof of a system that is broken. they are proof that the system is working exactly as it was designed. this country has a lot to learn about human rights, for all the pompous patriotism it boasts. we need to do better. we can do better. it requires an honest dialog about the intersections of oppression. it requires the will to learn, and an exercise in developing empathy. if you’re not angry, you’re part of the problem.

so that’s basically why i got this tattoo. because i WANT people to ask me about it. i WANT to talk about these things with people. i don’t care if they disagree, i want to challenge their ways of thinking and let them know they can unlearn those prejudices.

What are the chances that this photo will ever appear in the mainstream media?

Well I sure as shit will reblog it.

BREAKING: September 9th will be officially an entire month since the murder of Ferguson African-American unarmed teenage Michael Brown, at the hands of racist Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. In this entire month, Officer Darren Wilson hasn’t been heard from, he has literally disappeared. He still has not been arrested, charged, or indicted in the murder of Michael Brown.

chocohawlic:

Mike Brown was shot almost a full month ago and Darren Wilson is still a free man. This is despite 3 other Ferguson officers being fired. This is despite all “facts” of his injuries being proven false. This is despite the FBI and national organizations getting involved.

Stay woke

“from Ferguson to Gaza,
These days that we’re going through now are the days that define our movement world wide,
A year ago Maya Wind and I drove across the US and warned many of you in the United States that you are next in line, next in line to be under occupation, armored vehicles in your neighborhood, a curfew on your streets, today I ‘m here to tell you that the israeli army also used chemical weapons in Gaza, any of you willing to say that you will not be the next one they try
new weapons with chemical ingredients on?
These days, in the Winds blew from Ferguson Missouri to Gaza in Palestine,
It is essential to remember that we are all together in the same struggle under the same oppression all over the world, And if there is anything that scares the authorities everywhere more than a mob in the street it is an organized mob in the street that is aware of his power and of his rights, a mob with a history from Emmett Till to Michael Brown to Bassem abu rahmeh and Salem Shammaly,
an hungry mob that Unite together against oppression ,.
Despite what they are trying to sell to us in the mainstream media.
Our problem is not an angry mob on the street, our problem is that there is not enough
Masses taking to the streets, Our problem is that people still think they can win if they play by the rules and they do not realize that the game was never for us, we are just puppets in it.
this coming week I will write a detailed article on the use of chemical ingredients in Gaza, I will appear on democracy now, and at the beginning of next week i will appear on Breaking the Set with Abby Martin to discuss extensively about Gaza.
On September 24 I will appear as a witness in the special Russell Tribunal on Palestine Gaza session in Belgium.
Our desire for liberation from oppression can not be shut down by tear gas or rubber bullets. Yearning for freedom from oppression and demanding equality and dignity for all is necessary, and indeed it will come true.”

Dillon Taylor and Mike Brown both unarmed both shot by police.

You might or might not have heard about the white man who was shot and killed by police in Utah around the same time as Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. He was wearing headphones and could not hear commands by police. The…

In New York City, 123 people have been killed by law enforcement officials since Sean Bell was slain in 2006. 

These are just some of the lives that were stopped short due to police encounters. Look at their faces. Read their stories. Know their names. This is just the tip of the iceberg that is police brutality. Even though their lives were taken from us, do not allow them to be forgotten.
