Don Lemon (The leader and president of the new black movement). Look at all the side eyes. They are wide awake and I love them for it. They want him to get the fuck out the paint.

THESE FACES OMGGGGGGGG

Yes ma’am at these classic side eyes!  I don’t know why people think that black people are stupid or unaware?!?!  We’ve never been much for tokens…  And let’s include TJ Holmes in this round up please!

Someone live-tweeted Mike Brown’s murder. Read Bottom-up.

TW: POLICE BRUTALITY

I know the Brown family asked to not have his image used, but because this was the stream of conscious/presence sense impression of someone who will undoubtedly be a witness in this case, I thought it was important to show the photo and his proximity to what happened.

Live tweet of the execution of #MikeBrown.

A mother lost her child. A father lost his son. A young man lost his life. #JusticeForMikeBrown

This is #MikeBrown.  Black folk are dynamic.  We are human damn it.

Self policing.  Much safer than the police state!  Black folk are dynamic; most of us are not the media stereotype. #WakeUp #SchoolDazeVoice

Stop making excuses for the president’s deafening silence on what’s happening in Ferguson.

#cosign.  Being a productive citizen means critiquing our politicians without blindly following based on political affiliation.

Yesterday I got a call from my sister Cheeraz Gormon in St. Louis who was standing with poet Elizabeth Vega. They wanted me to know that a few women had created, on lawns, in the streets, healing stations, a place where the youth could come and scream and cry and be held and heard in love. Mighty work.Dream Hampton

this made me cry.

💔

Yes!  Powerful stuff!
