When men talk of women and girls in terms of legal/not legal, what they’re really saying is “I already sexually objectify this child and would attempt to fuck her if there were no laws in the way.”

You can’t deny that is fucking scary.

Sometimes there are things that just sort of vaguely seem wrong, but you can’t put your finger on why…until it’s worded like this, and suddenly everything slides into place and you feel like someone punched you in the gut.

If whats happening in Ferguson was happening to an all white community, it would be called a dystopian novel

#and all actions against the police would be heroic and daring#and the plucky white protags would be encouraged to use violence to stop the injustice

The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same as the rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century.

"Never forget that freedom is not something that is voluntarily given by the oppressor. It is something that must be demanded by the oppressed."
Martin Luther King Jr.
"Every now and then I guess we all think realistically about that day when we will be victimized with what is life’s final common denominator–that something we call death. We all think about it and every now and then I think about my own death and I think about my own funeral. And I don’t think about it in a morbid sense. Every now and then I ask myself, “What is it that I would want said?” And I leave the word to you this morning.

I’d like somebody to mention that day, that Martin Luther King Jr., tried to give his life serving others.

I’d like for somebody to say that day, that Martin Luther King Jr., tried to love somebody."
Martin Luther King Jr., in his final sermon the day before he was assassinated. 
"In 1860, 99% of all black people worked for whites. Today, 98% of all black people work for whites. You are enjoying a social illusion because you go to someone else’s restaurant, but you don’t own a restaurant yourself."

"You’re not protecting the people and you’re not protecting property, so why are you there?" 

"Is it okay to use violence to get what you want, or not? Because a cop blew the head off of Michael Brown, shot a teenager six times, but Michael Brown is the savage because he pushed a guy in a convenience store? You don’t own us anymore. Either we all have the same unalienable rights, or we don’t.” - Jesse Williams, laying it down.
