    NEWSFLASH for Keke Palmer and Pharrell Williams and any other #newBlack celeb desperate to appease their White fan base: you do NOT get to invoke Martin Luther King Jr or “people are people" or humanism when you cannot even manage to utter simple words like “police brutality” or “racial profiling” or “structural racism” or even the word racism…and that is telling: they will speak vaguely or broadly on contemporary racial issues, but their solution is to ignore the root problem and berate anyone else who won’t join them in sticking their heads in the sand

    And ProTip: Dr. King’s dream came true? I bet his dream wasn’t for anyone to patronizingly talk down to Black people who are mourning and/or justifiably protesting a torrent of racially motivated executions of UNARMED Black people like Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Jonathan Ferrall, Eric Garner, Michael Brown , etc etc etc. MLK jr’s dream was for not only racial justice, but also economic justice and fairness in the criminal justice system, and so much more…does anyone seriously believe we’ve attained that?

    Any Black celeb with high visibility and a national platform, who’s solution to racial profiling is “we all bleed red” is failing down on the job and failing Michael Brown and shouldn’t even be allowed to say his name, let alone Martin Luther King’s

    I dare anyone to tell me how a “Kumbaya, be happy, we’re all just human, positive attitude” would have saved the lives of Trayvon Martin, Jonathan Ferrell, Renisha McBride, or Michael Brown—especially when they were racially profiled and confronted by ARMED white men simply for being Black

    Here’s a final quote that seems highly apropos:

    There are Negroes who will never fight for freedom. There are Negroes who will seek profit for themselves alone from the struggle. There are even some Negroes who will cooperate with their oppressors. These facts should distress no one. Every minority and every people has its share of opportunists, profiteers, free-loaders and escapists.

    As soon as I read that she said MLK dream came true I almost skipped past this post. Thankfully, there are people who have a head on their shoulders. It’s one thing not to want to disrespect a following you have, but it’s another to now down to them. WE WILL FIGHT FOR OUR DREAM.

    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

    1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson

    1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson

    1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson

    1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson

    1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]

Justice for Kendrick Johnson at The March on Washington 50th Anniversary - August 28th, 2013
Kendrick Johnson was a 17-year-old student at Lowndes County High School in Valdosta, Georgia, where he was last seen in his fourth-period class on the afternoon of Thursday, January 10, 2013.  After that, he never showed up to any of his other classes.
And he wasn’t on the school bus home, as he always was at the end of the day.
Worried like any parents would be, Kenneth and Jackie Johnson reported him missing to the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department.   Both in their mid-forties, Kenneth is a truck driver and Jackie, a school bus driver.  They spent a long night wondering if their child would come home safely.
Lowndes County High School is a complex of low lying buildings, built in a horseshoe shape around a large parking lot.  The old school gym is a small building, sandwiched between two larger ones.  There are surveillance cameras outside and inside the gym, where a student visited early the next morning following Kendrick’s disappearance.
Wrestling mats were rolled up and standing vertically, as they usually were, in the back of the gym.  Horsing around, the student noticed that one mat was different from the others.  Someone’s bare feet were sticking out of the top of one of the mats.  Was this some sort of practical joke?  But it wasn’t Halloween, so what was going on?
The student quickly left and called a teacher.  When adults came to the gym and unrolled the mat, inside was the body of a male African American.  It was impossible to identify him by sight; his face had been beaten beyond recognition.  Paramedics were summoned.
The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department arrived after, though the exact time which they showed up is unclear. Searching the body, police found a wallet in the pocket of his gym shorts.  Opening it, the identification said, “Kendrick Johnson.”  Inexplicably, County Coroner Bill Watson was not summoned until 3:45 PM, approximately five hours and forty five minutes later.
When Watson got there, it was chaos. The entire scene around the body was trampled by everyone from curious coaches and teachers, to the cops themselves.  To say the crime scene was contaminated is putting it mildly.  Little evidence was gathered; no one was questioned; and no crime scene photos were taken.  The body was eventually carted off to the Harrington Funeral Home, where an interested worker did snap the only photo extant of Kendrick’s face in death.

this fails to mention that Kendrick’s brain, heart, liver, and lungs were missing from his body—replaced by newspaper. 
we speak and remember his name.

i read the sheriff’s son had something to do with it

Wait, his organs were missing?!?!
