sorry white people but if you dont support mike brown & the people of fergusons’ protests in 2014 you probably wouldnt have supported abolition in the 1800s or civil rights movements in the 1960s & having the ability to recognize something as morally justified in hindsight something that has already been accepted by the mainstream as morally justified is nice for u but on all practical levels useless to everyone else

"Quick story. So, we live in New York City; a liberal bastion. Recently, we sent a correspondent and a producer to a building in this liberal bastion, where we were going to tape an interview. The producer, white, dressed in what can only be described as homeless elf attire and a pretty strong five-o’clock-from-the-previous-week shadow, strode confidently into the building, preceding our humble correspondent, a gentleman of color, dressed resplendently in a tailored suit. Who do you think was stopped? Let me give you a hint: the black guy. And that shit happens all the time. All of it. Race is there and it is a constant. You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it."
