Thats true yeah but i was talking specifically about the zimmerman case. His injuries were constistant with his own report of what happened for example

he was acquitted. as you can see from the graph, a lot of trigger-happy assholes who gun down black kids on the streets enjoy that privilege. it doesn’t make him any less a symbol of anti-black vigilante justice. it doesn’t make the widespread paranoia of riots upon hearing a not guilty verdict any less hysterical and racist. it doesn’t make the ongoing phenomenon of young black men being targeted for “self-defense” any less a national disgrace. that was the point of the thing i reblogged.

if george zimmerman doesn’t want to be the latest symbol of America’s anti-black violence problem, he is just gonna have to go back in time and not stalk a black teenager as he walks down the street. I’m sure the Martin family will be very relieved to have their son back.

Wasnt Zimmerman acquitted because the jury found that he was acting in self defese?

Wisdom! Let us attend



He “resisted arrest,” he didn’t do what he was told as quickly as he should have, he may have shoved someone, he smoked a joint, he flirted with a white girl, he broke the Sabbath and disturbed the peace. … Those are all the same thing.

That’ll preach.

That is some fine writing. And a good point.

finally met aud’s neighbor! she’s a really pretty middle-aged black lady from Chicago. we hung out while she tore down the morning glory infestation that was snuffing out her plot. she says she had a run-in with a creepy white dude in the building a few weeks ago and she casually mentioned that she has to be extra careful about people like that because if cops come they will go after her first. it’s always a trip becoming aware of the massive cracker-shaped gaps in my understanding of how modern American racism actually is.

she let me show her the Captain’s best tricks, then i went in because i was getting a sunburn. it’s fucking boiling out there.


white abled cishets complaining about the mean little disabled trans who just wants a safe space

Dear honky,

People Who Really Need To Be Seen As Less Bigoted

white people who think the best way to secure a favorable response is by stereotyping any group they disagree with to erase any participation by minorities

thanks for your help wonderbread

what would reality do without your little touch-ups

There's a post on tumblr that compares black basketball athletes to cotton picking slaves. Apparently it's the same as slavery because black athletes are paid by white people. God help me, I don't understand anything anymore.

i don’t wanna get into it too much without seeing the post but with the caveat that I am aware player exploitation exists and racism from team managers/owners is a legit problem:

it seems like it would take a pretty big pair of “let me tell you how you’re oppressed” SJW balls to erase the agency, devotion and pride of accomplishment of an entire pool of talented athletes who genuinely love sports because they are playing while black. i’m uncomfortable making or agreeing with any blanket judgments on their situation made from the outside since i’m neither black nor athletic and the people who are can speak for themselves.
