People love watching and reading about dystopias and rebellions, but when it happens in real life suddenly those people are demonizing the resistance and championing the oppressors as the protectors of society.
Ladies and gentlemen, Ferguson police.
Straight up white supremacists.
this is exactly how they’ve always talked to us, this is how cops in NY speak to little brown and black kids as young as 12 and 13 up to 18 and 19 and so on. this isn’t because there’s aggression from riots this is just how they speak about us and think of us.
It upsets me that people are always trying to say this is how cops talk to us (yes, I have had a cop point a gun in my face before) and nobody believes it until Anderson Cooper puts it on television.
white people bend over backwards to shout about their constitutional right to bear arms but when black people exercise their right to peaceful assembly they’re met with militarized police force
