Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.

It is not a riot.

Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)

Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The prople of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.

Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.

Photo of Portland suspect mistaken for Michael Brown

socialjusticekoolaid:

Please boost the hell out of this! I keep seeing the aforementioned photo attached to Mike as “the most damning evidence against his character.” Don’t let racist assholes define his legacy. They’ve already taken his life. #staywoke

openlyawesome said: White people keep pretending it's about police brutality and not about race so they can distance themselves. If it's about police brutality, white people can criticize the police and then move on. But if it's about race, white people will have a responsibility to actually do something and make long-lasting changes that will remove some of the power they have. This would threaten ~stability~ and the status quo. And to maintain their privilege, an oppressor will always favor stability over justice

katblaque:

But where is the lie tho!!!!?!!

It’s exactly that. This is just what I feel when i read these posts. It drives me absolutely mad. Black people are only important to them when we’re examples of police brutality. They keep bringing up something that happened to one white man years ago not realizing that the same has happened to many black men in the space of 2 months. They don’t see that while yes this is a police brutality issue this is ALSO a race issue. Mike Brown got shot for supposedly stealing cigars… how many white thieves have you heard of that were murdered by police because of theft? Like come the fuck on. This IS a race issue. I’m not making this a race issue, it’s always been one. By ignoring the fact that it’s a race issue, it continues. they also don’t see the great problematic nature of BLACK PEOPLE, specifically black men who say that this is a race issue and them, as white people, saying that it’s not. i’m sorry but when have white oppressors become the judges of what is and isn’t oppressive. Of course it’s not a race issue to you that would require you to recognize that you’ve got privilege and no one likes to hear that they’ve been in a system that’s been supportive to them and because of that things aren’t equal. It’s all so maddening. I’m so tired of white people being more concerned with their comfort and not looking like a racist than actually combating racism and oppression.
