The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover
My people getting it!
Sometimes it takes the voices of children to speak truth to power, especially when it comes to the evils of racism.
Without question, the widespread police brutality and abuse, both in Ferguson, Mo., and around the country, has elevated the consciousness of young people across America. But many others still are laboring on the illusion that we are living in a post-racial nation following the election of President Barack Obama.

On Lucas & Hunt right at W. Florissant….swat truck behind me, Highway Patrol pick up directly behind and three law enforcement vehicles ahead to my left. Driving down W. Florissant now hoping these vehicles aren’t indicative of tensions at Ground Zero. #Ferguson #HandsUp #DontShoot #MyStLouis (at Ferguson, MO)
