A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.

And the rest of us are not treated like human beings. Period.(x)

Aaron Hill is a disabled boy in Okeechobee who was lured out of his home by a girl claiming to want to go on a date. Once to the location she chose, he was ambushed by Andrew Wheeler and a gang of at least 8 other people. Andrew beat him senseless, held a knife to his throat, And told him he was going to shoot and kill him. This was filmed the whole time, but currently this is the only video I can get a hold of. The video was on Andrew’s facebook and he went around bragging about his crime. He was arrested, but only charged with minor assault and no charges or arrests are being made on the others involved. Some of the others involved have family in the Okeechobee police department and also DCF. One of the parents even destroyed evidence to protect their guilty little brat. So now the Okeechobee Police Department are trying to bury this story because some of the kids have ties to the department. We’re asking everyone to spread this around that we want justice for Aaron, that if anyone has a copy of the video please take it to the media. We need all media outlets to know this is a cover up and we will not accept it. Please download and spread this video. We’re using the hashtag JusticeForAaron.

PLEASE, if you have it, PLEASE make a copy and take it to all media, ALL MEDIA, not just Okeechobee I’m talking surrounding counties. This is extremely important. Aaron and his mother are getting death threats and they deserve justice. We need more people! Okeechobee is a little town run by the Good Ole Boys. Ferguson is allowing them to think this is okay. News channel 25 contact them at web@wpbf.com or 5616942525! We need this to blow up to make this stop. In the wake of Michael Brown and the others that have been hurt by police, we cannot let them bury this like a bunch of crime lords. Their job is to protect us, not protect the guilty from justice. And by the way there’s been ANOTHER unarmed black man killed by police. He was shot in the back and he was complying with police orders. He was also mentally handicapped. This. Needs. To. Stop.

Please, signal boost the HELL out of this. #JusticeForAaron

Omg

fucking heartless

Fuck them. His address is 602 SW 9th st, Okeechobee, FL, 34974. The girl’s phone number is (863) 801-0525.

Page 3 shows a picture of him along with an article about him being involved in a burglary.

Page 7 shows that he was arrested on October 1st, 2012.

I’m not going to watch the video I’ll cry. This is heart breaking.

Study finds: White children far more negative about interactions with different races than Black children.

Is anyone actually surprised though?

These are the children of the adults who were raised by the people who fought to keep Jim Crow alive. These children are being raised by the offspring of men and women who lynched black people for sitting on the wrong side of a restaurant; the very people who fought to keep segregation alive and killed Martin Luther King Jr.

So by all means, I doubt we needed a study to prove this fact true.

To add to the above argument:

Even if the child is raised in a household where race is NOT a topic of discussion the child will still pick up on Racial Micro Aggressions.

If you have never spoken ill of black men, yet you clutch your purse or lock your windows when one is around; your child will notice that and process “black men are dangerous”. If you discuss how you don’t like when people get tans and have darker skin your child will process “dark skin is ugly” and it doesn’t help that the mass media the child is watching also projects this notion that white is the standard of beauty and those who do not adhere are deemed ugly and unworthy. If you don’t associate with people of color or keep any relations short and brief?; your child will too.

Many parents fail to realize that their children are ALWAYS watching them, always. Just like baby ducks following their mama, a child follows it’s parents. It’s a survival tactic for a child to copy the adult and bring the caregivers characteristics into their own being.

You may think “oh he didn’t say anything” or “he’s playing he’s not listening to my conversation”; but he is. Which is why many people turn out like their parents or develop similar parenting styles.

Anonymous said: You do realize he deserved to be shot right. There's a picture of him while robbing the store holding the clerk by the throat..

Oh, my mistake.

Luke Woodham, 16, WHITE. Murdered two students at his school AND his own mother. Now in prison.

Kip Kinkel, 15, WHITE. Murdered two students at his school AND both of his parents. Now in prison.

Eric Hainstock, 15, WHITE. Murdered one student at his school. Now in prison.

TJ Lane, 17, WHITE. Murdered three students and told their parents that he masturbates to the memory at his trial. Now in prison.

James Holmes, 24, WHITE. Murdered twelve people at a premier of Batman. Now in prison.

Timothy McVeigh, 27, WHITE. Murdered 168 people and injured 600 more when he blew up a building in Oklahoma. Was executed in 2001, but only after a fair trial and appeals.

Not to mention all of the serial killers, school shooters and spree killers who are touted as being “misunderstood” and were given the basic liberty of a fair trial even though the majority of them committed crimes so abhorrent that I won’t write about them on this blog.

But you’re a right. A black, unarmed 18 year old boy who ALLEGEDLY held up a store deserved to be shot while he was on the ground. And he sure as fuck deserved to be laid in the middle of the street, uncovered for over 4 hours. And maybe because I’m a mother too but my mind automatically goes to his mother, she deserved to see her baby being treated like that right?

My mistake.

creaturefeatureandpiglets said: Before I say this, I agree that white people will probably never know what it's like to experience the type of racism that black people experience. Please know I agree that. But now I just want to say, when you said a dark skinned person can't be racist you said a black person can't judge someone for their skin color (unless I misunderstood what you said my brain's not wired right), which I know is a lie because I have seen black people hate not only whites but Asians and and Native Americans.

Black people can be racist… against other Black people when they use White Systemic rules. Any PoC can be racists to other PoC when they use White Systemic beliefs. 

Yes, when I said Black people can’t be racist, that’s not a full statement. Black people can’t be racist to WHITE people. But other races? Yes. Black people can only be prejudice because we don’t have a system in place that can be used as leverage. 

Understand?

P.S. - replace “Black people” with other PoCs and within the last paragraph and it’s still true.

No I don’t understand. 

The definition of racism:

image

Saying a black person can’t be racist against white is saying black people can’t hate white people because of skin color! Look all over tumblr and you see this. HELL LOOK AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FREEDOM WRITERS, THEY REFUSED TO LEARN BECAUSE THE TEACHER WAS WHITE.

STOP CHANGING THE DEFINITIONS OF WORDS. STOP TRYING TO REVERSE SOCIETY. STOP MAKING PoC LOOK BAD.

"Changing the definitions of words"…

hmmm… interesting.

So, you think by highlighting words and showing screenshots will help me? Fine.  I can play that game to. I like to present to you the definition of racism.

See the boxes?

Now, if you follow… the definition was hold up meaning this:

image

Still following? Okay… you’re saying I’m “racist”, which means:

image

See the word “doctrine”… hmmm… that means:

image

… the video still stands. PoC’s can’t be racist because we need a system of beliefs to uphold. White people have a system we must use already in place. Every other race? Nope.

The word you want to use is:

image

I hope that makes it even clearer. And if it doesn’t, well, I don’t know what else to tell you.

How bout this stop arguing over words. People are evil that’s what we need to fix. I don’t car if it was a blue dinosaur that shot the kid. Murder is murder. And I do understand that police brutality is more common with white cops attacking black people but there is not point in arguing about weather or not someone can be racist or whatever.

Ladies, Gentlemen and People who ID themselves one way or another, as I want to be all inclusive…

Repeat after me…

STOP simplifying it to “good” vs. “evil”, because one good is someone else’s evil and vice versa. 

And STOP telling me “it’s not about words”. I’m pretty sure if I was to call you something harsh for making such a simplified statement in a complex matter that is a result in centuries of a delaying human system that benefits a certain race, a certain class, a certain level of capitalistic greed and you glaze it over as some sorta “good vs evil” just because you can’t comprehend it, you’ll probably be offended.
