We need more white people to understand this! @k_dirrty
#i love this I appreciate it a lot but it really bothers me that some white people and admittedly some self hating non black POC will only learn when a white ally voices what the oppressed people have been yelling for years and years. It feels a lot like when you’re a girl and a guy won’t stop hitting on you or harassing you unless they have proof you’re ‘taken’ by another man and you have to ask one of your guy friends to act like your boyfriend. Of course your friend will help you and you’ll thank them but WHY should you rely on someone else when you’re giving your honest ‘no’ and showing discomfort at their advances?. My point is…I really love what she’s doing and I hope she keeps doing it but it’s 2014 and if you gotta wait for someone who looks like you to educate you in order to be able to show some decency and empathy you’re probably not a decent person anyway
👆 the comment speaks louder than the actual post
I’m just gonna leave some of Charles Clymer’s tweet here, because that’s what white people should say
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."
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.’
Still holding on to summer. Men… Could you? Would you? Should you? #shoes #shoelover #menswear #mensfashion #fashion

It’s so upsetting that this is the norm. What’s even more disturbing is that they don’t try to hide it. Please, black men, watch your back. It’s about survival at this point.
I always tell my brother not to say shit when dealing with officers. Answer their questions promptly. Even if you know you’re not in the wrong don’t say shit about it. Don’t implicate yourself either but don’t try to speak up and say anything contrary to what the officer is accusing you of. Take your ticket/fine. Fight that battle in court and not with someone who has a glock ready to be emptied.
What the times of today are reducing to. Sad and scary
