Jon Stewart on Fox News & Ferguson

majiinboo:

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

"Black women have a narrative thrown onto them that tells the world that they are always horrible unfit mothers but when people from all over the world need someone to raise their children they seek Black women".
somebody on Tumblr H/T Omar Sankofa via Chad Goller-Sojourner
"I have a friend who we’ll call Mary. Though fair skinned, Mary has two black parents, and grew up in a very black area. One day Mary married a white, white guy (think Vikings) and together they made a mixed race kid, with blond hair, which means at least twice a day aka 730 times a year, Mary gets mistaken for the best dressed nanny in NYC, even when the kid is screaming mommy. Well you can imagine how frustrating this must be. Luckily for Mary, I’m a fixer and giver, which is why I once sent her 500 business card embossed with “Bitch, I’m not the help, I’m the momma.”
