bonding over pain that no parent should have to feel

Emmett was 50 years ago - this goes back generations. Mike Brown was not an isolated incident. Trayvon was not an isolated incident. Jordan Davis was not an isolated incident. Our families have got to stop suffering through this.

I think this photo best captures yesterday’s National Moment of Silence rally in Chicago. Anger, sadness, and most of all immobilizing pain over what has been done to the black community throughout history and how that legacy of violence and oppression continues today. Thank you to Black Youth Project 100 for organizing the event and sharing your songs, stories, and pain with the Chicago community.

If you don’t feel this…if it doesn’t stir something in you…if it doesn’t demand answers…

dion-thesocialist:

All it takes is one event to set a precedent. If Darren Wilson is arrested for, charged with, and convicted of the murder of Michael Brown, then that means ALL cops can be held accountable for their actions. It means the people can ALWAYS rise up and fight back against police brutality. 

That’s what the cops and National Guard in Ferguson is fighting against. They don’t want this standard to be set.
