Here’s a picture of cops watching the Mike Brown memorial burn.
Put this everywhere. Show everyone. The protest pictures capture the determination and strength of the people they abuse.
Even if they’re not literally punching a protestor here… THIS picture captures them.
Even though John Crawford III was only holding a BB gun he picked up—IN A STORE THAT SELLS BB GUNS.
Even though it was an open carry state.
Even though he was on the phone when police officers opened fire on him.
Even though he was shot in the back.
Even though the cops lied and were caught in a lie because of the subsequent video.
A grand jury who, when added together, obviously didn’t have half a gnat’s brain, declined to indict the officers.
The message here?
It has been, is, and always will be open season on black people for as long as white supremacy is the philosophie du jour.

Don’t even feel that surprised.
I am numb.
And that’s perhaps the worst part- that these kinds of injustices feel common and expected. Smh.
