The Southern Socialist

Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarassed millionaires. ~John Steinbeck Atlanta, GA Via Brooklyn, NY

  • 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

When Utah residents saw 22-year-old Darrien Hunt carrying a toy sword, they called police who shot and killed him. But when 22-year-old Joseph Kelley carried an assault rifle to a JC Penney store in Utah, he walked out without a scratch on his body. They were both the same age. Both in the same state. But only one was considered “suspicious.” And you still believe America is color blind?

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

Why doesn’t this have a million notes?!

i love how the “did you drug them” has a little pit stop at “you’re evil”

As well it should.

I’ve reblogged this before but Imma do it again because a)it’s awesome and b) I have a specific voice when I say “Do not do the sex”.

This needs to be on a billboard and posters all around the world. Maybe even on menus are restaurants

Needs to be in bars

Like I’ve stated countless times before: police brutality and violence is nothing new to the unarmed black american.
It’s been happening ever since the original American police force; the “slave patrol” was established to capture runaway slaves and keep the free black people from revolting. I don’t give a fuck about the “good cops” because they aren’t doing a damn thing to stop this terror, they’re benefiting from it.

More people are becoming aware of it now because of the use of social media. Without social media very few of us would be educated about what’s happening to black America.

We should NEVER get used to racist violent acts against black people. NEVER. I never want to wake up and see another one of my people was wrongfully attacked and go “well, I’m not surprised. This always happens”.
I REFUSE, Black lives have value. We are human; we deserve respect and the privilege to have opportunities as much as the next white person.

It’s even heartbreaking that I have to type this out. For all the black people out there who believe white people have the right to their “opinions” look at what their opinions are doing to all of us, yes.. I said ALL of us, you included. For all the black men who don’t see value in black women you are just perpetuating the exact same racist animosity they have towards you.

BLACK LIVES MATTER.

(via keepcalm-anddontpanic)

America was built on the preferential treatment of white people—395 years of it. Vaguely endorsing a cuddly, feel-good diversity does very little to redress this.

Police were strangely able to arrest her without gunning her down in the street. Weird.

Funny that.

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Even my nerds gotta watch their back. Pray or send good vibes to the family y’all. I wonder what the outcome will be since the mother is white? Maybe nothing different. We’ll see. Here’s the link.

  • White tumblr can understand that wearing a short skirt and high heels doesn't mean you were asking for it, but they can't understand that sagging your pants and saying nigga doesn't mean you deserved to be killed.
