Anonymous said: Is it appropriate for white protestors to engage in "hands up, don't shoot" chants, make a "don't shoot" gesture as a pose for a photograph, raise their fists, etc.? It's clearly trivializing and appropriative when done on social media, but what about while attending protests that are hosted by a black community-- does participating still send the wrong message, or is it a useful gesture of solidarity? Thanks for your time.
Before I would have said no. But at this time I will say yes. White protestors are getting shot and tear gassed for peacefully protesting. This has transcended police brutality against Black Men, and challenging police brutality in general, regardless of the race or gender.
You need a multicultural united front to make changes. If we can’t get the solidarity of the people who represent the majority, we are just gonna continue to be slaughtered.

here’s a twitter list that updates frequently w different ppl and journalists tweets. it’s really handy because info circulates slower on tumblr (i saw day old news is just getting around today) especially if you dont have access to / dont trust mainstream media. i don’t believe you need an account to view it.

Yes, I know. I was there. Some brought their own, many were not prepared at all and did drastic things because of dire needs.
i love that mcdonald’s response was like “nah nothin’ happened to our shop”
"there was no looting"
