Kill that pig.
Basically. White folks got some nerve talmbout “you guys can’t separate yourselves it only helps the problem”. Like they wasn’t the ones who invented the segregation tip.

Why is it that people are willing to spend $20 on a bowl of pasta with sauce that they might actually be able to replicate pretty faithfully at home, yet they balk at the notion of a white-table cloth Thai restaurant, or a tacos that cost more than $3 each? Even in a city as “cosmopolitan” as New York, restaurant openings like Tamarind Tribeca (Indian) and Lotus of Siam (Thai) always seem to elicit this knee-jerk reaction from some diners who have decided that certain countries produce food that belongs in the “cheap eats” category—and it’s not allowed out. (Side note: How often do magazine lists of “cheap eats” double as rundowns of outer-borough ethnic foods?)
Yelp, Chowhound, and other restaurant sites are littered with comments like, “$5 for dumplings?? I’ll go to Flushing, thanks!” or “When I was backpacking in India this dish cost like five cents, only an idiot would pay that much!” Yet you never see complaints about the prices at Western restaurants framed in these terms, because it’s ingrained in people’s heads that these foods are somehow “worth” more. If we’re talking foie gras or chateaubriand, fair enough. But be real: You know damn well that rigatoni sorrentino is no more expensive to produce than a plate of duck laab, so to decry a pricey version as a ripoff is disingenuous. This question of perceived value is becoming increasingly troublesome as more non-native (read: white) chefs take on “ethnic” cuisines, and suddenly it’s okay to charge $14 for shu mai because hey, the chef is ELEVATING the cuisine.”

That CNN Anchor who said police should turn “water cannons” on the protesters… yeah, her ass is gone! #staywoke #cackling
All I can say is…wow. Not a good feeling.
Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest.
I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.
SIGNAL BOOST THE HECK OUT OF THIS
So many more people have donated to Michael Brown’s memorial fund… but people who are committed to racial and social justice are also less likely to be rich, so.
(The average donation to MB memorial fund is $25 while the average donation to Darren Wilson is over $40.)
Edited to add: Darren Wilson fund is now up to $189k while Michael Brown’s memorial fund is at $146k.
i am quoting this a thousand times today.
RIP mike brown.
You WILL want to watch this.
Please reblog & signal boost so we can get this truth out!!

This statement derails and belittles the conversation so that you may shout your good ally status.
You are not a good ally.
Why are you feeling like you need to defend white people? I am being completely serious with that question. When a person of color talks about…
meanwhile the police fill the block with tear gas. who’s protecting and serving here
This is really important
imma be reblogging this every time I see it
Now that Missouri Highway Patrol are policing Ferguson, things are a lot different.
This is what happens when you remove racist, belligerent cops from a non-violent protest.
it is very good news that the citizens are no longer living under militarized attackbut please don’t forget that this sudden surge of friendliness is a deliberate tactic to placate unrest and maintain order, not to bring justice or to truly answer to the problem of police brutality
it is a move to shift the narrative to “a couple cops are bad apples, but look how good the rest of them are”
