I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.

If you are on Twitter, here’s a good roster of people to follow if you want to keep updated.

BUSTED! Gov. Running #Ferguson Twitter Psyop

GOD!

Thousands of bots on Twitter tweeting out the same racist, anti-Michael Brown tweets. This, at least, is detectable/provable. But rest assured, in addition to easily purchasable bots there are paid individuals representing both private and government interests who are paid to wear down your resolve, troll you, shift opinion, convolute conversations, etc. regarding private business interests, foreign interests like this Israel student union Facebook war room, but much more organized. 

Although I think engaging in meaningful conversations is important, I think being vigilant for your own mental health  is important. You should feel good/guiltless about blocking people, turning off the anonymous ask function, and ignoring trolls who will never try to actually have a meaningful dialogues because often their whole agenda is simply to ware you down. 

Holy fuck the fact that this is legit and not just conspiracy fear mongering is frightening.

this thing w ferguson is making me wonder how many of the historical riots that happened in the 20th century they teach you about in school were actually ‘riots’ ??

I’m scared that in 40 years, I’m gonna have to tell my child what really happened because their textbooks will be full of lies

TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

Colt 45 Molotov cocktail? What’s next, a watermelon incendiary bomb? A fried chicken pipe bomb? These jokers can’t even frame folks without their racism showing.

As an introvert, I don’t hate interacting with people. I love it.

In small and meaningful doses.

You imply that the way that extroverts interact with others isn’t meaningful.

That’s uncool. That’s hating on extroverts.

I’m an extrovert. Sometimes I want casual hanging out. Sometimes I want deep intimate conversation. They’re both necessary and needed for me, and therefore they’re both meaningful for me.

No, actually I didn’t imply anything. You seem intent on dispelling extrovert myths, but this post has nothing to do with extroversion at all. It’s actually dispelling the myth that introverts don’t like interacting with others. And I was simply speaking for myself, as an introvert. The fact that so many others were able to relate to it was pretty cool.

And also, I never defined what is and is not meaningful. Obviously people have different ideas on what makes a meaningful conversation, and will find meaning in different types of interactions, regardless of whether they are introverts or extroverts.

I mean, by my speaking about my experience as an introvert, it may be inferred that I like hating on extroverts. Sure, Okay.

— six word story (via 124)




If I see three or four young black men walking down the street, I have to stop them and check their names. I want them to be afraid every time they see the police that they might get arrested.

Chief Russell Mills to the LA Times after shooting and killing black 89-year-old great grandfather Shawn Monroe at a barbecue unprovoked. Today, he walks free with no charges, despite numerous witnesses and his own admission that he enjoys terrorizing black people.

Tell me again why Black people should be okay with police when they have, since the history of our being kidnapped to this fucking country, have not EVER been about protecting us, but about terrorizing us?

Police are NOT for Black people’s safety. They are about torturing us, terrorizing us and killing us. Period. There is no safety with police. There is no peace keeping with police. They have ALWAYS been a terror to the Black community and I am tired of this fact being pushed to the wayside.
