If it were white people being attacked by police in Ferguson

The media would have headlines like “Brave protestors salvage milk from McDonald’s to wash out tear gas from eyes”.

But no, black folks just loot right? They never “salvage” or “find” or “scrounge for” like the ever flawless white person. Nope never.

CNN host: National Guard said ‘you never know’ what Ferguson ‘n*ggers’ are going to do

Aug. 20 2014

CNN host Don Lemon, who has spent recent days reporting from Ferguson, recalled on Tuesday that a member of the National Guard had called protesters the n-word.

During a CNN town hall event about the racial divide in the U.S., an African-American member of the audience asked what safeguards could be put in place to prevent officers from overreacting when dealing with black men.

The Black Sphere’s Kevin Jackson noted that putting body cameras on officers changed the dynamic in police stops.

“If there’s a camera, he knows he’s got to check himself,” Jackson explained. “And if you know an officer has a camera, you also have to check yourself.”

Lemon pointed out that body cameras could also make a certain “type of person” think twice before going into law enforcement in the first place.

“I’m just going to be honest with you,” Lemon recalled. “Last night, one of my producers said that they — I won’t say if it’s a he or a she because I don’t want to give anyone a way — said that they came in contact with one of the members of the National Guard. And that they said, ‘You want to get out of here because you’re white. Because these n-words, you know, you never know what they’re going to do.’”

“True story. I kid you not,” the CNN host lamented. “2014, a member of the National Guard, and my producer doesn’t lie.”

agentlesbian:

What’s sad about the pictures I keep seeing about Ferguson is that people are adding comments like “this will be in the history books!”

The thing is, no, it probably won’t be in history books. At least not in the right context.

They’ll write up all the wrong facts, use all the wrong pictures,…

The police raided a church because they believed that the church was offering hospitality. The police raided a church because giving people a place to rest is against the law. The police raided a church because caring for people goes against the aims of empire and must be stopped.
You cannot serve the United States and the Kingdom of God. You cannot honor a badge and the cross. You cannot love the state and your neighbor.
