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.
ok im wide awake again
here’s a twitter list that updates frequently w different ppl and journalists tweets. it’s really handy because info circulates slower on tumblr (i saw day old news is just getting around today) especially if you dont have access to / dont trust mainstream media. i don’t believe you need an account to view it.
This is still going on, it’s not over. Remain skeptical of big shows of police being NiceGuys™ and keep supporting this cause.
The police in Ferguson are spraying tear gas and arresting peaceful protesters and reporters (2 reporters so far). Christina Coleman is an NBC Channel 5 news anchor from St. Louis…Son.

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.
2014 was one of those years that started out like “THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT!!!” and its halfway through and we have a war going on, a deadly disease has been spread, countless shootings have happened, racism is alive, more people have been leaving living things inside of hot cars, and robin williams is fucking dead
Genie, I wish he knew how much happiness he brought to people. I wish it didn’t end like this and I wish.. he will live on through the mark he left behind on all our lives.
