I wrote earlier about Ferguson, both a layout of the proportionality of the response and also the racist aspect of the criticisms. Looking back at the hastily written piece, I’m still proud although I wish I’d spent a little more time editing.
All #BlackLivesMatter. This is Not a Moment, but a Movement (black lives matter)
I place myself in the long history of mulatto women who faced and stood against racist violence. By knowing our history, we can find ourselves.
Isn’t it more reasonable to think that a violent hate group with a history of setting fires is responsible for fires in Ferguson? Rather than blaming protesters who have explicitly called for peace?
I am sad to say that this reasonable expectation was fulfilled with a bombing attempt on a NAACP headquarters.
