The Ink Well

A mish-mash of various things that often reflect the chaos in my head.

Unlike my thoughts, however, I don't own anything posted here. Credit where it's due.

And, to cover all that legal jazz, this page is 18+, and is NSFW.

& somehow cops managed without a tank & tear gas. #ferguson #mikebrown #policebrutality #racism

Even when we’re upset, and rightly so, we have to be upset in a way that doesn’t make euro-Americans too uncomfortable.  

Remember when all of Cliven Bundy’s ARMED friends showed up to protest the fact that the govt said Cliven couldn’t continue to steal govt property?  I do.  I also remember that no tear gas or military weaponry was aimed at those ARMED WHITE PROTESTORS!!

your sister,
your aunt, niece, or cousin,
I am my own person,
and I will not set fire to myself
to keep you warm.”

The New Jim Crow
1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 75% of those residents are Black
2. The Ferguson police department has around 530 cops —less than 5 of them are Black
3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson
4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime
5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color
6. Five examples: The Militarization of the police
7. It’s deeply Institutional: Police view Black Children As Less Innocent
8. So please - don’t get it twisted
