"The virus of white privilege survives by convincing its host organism that it does not exist. That’s because the more clearly we see it the more likely we are to notice that its purported benefits have faded almost to nothing. Whites of the working and middle classes correctly perceive that their economic fortunes have deteriorated over the past half-century, even if the average white household is still 20 times wealthier than the average black household (an especially deleterious consequence of white privilege). An entire right-wing ideological empire remains devoted to convincing white people that benefit-sucking African-Americans and job-stealing Latino immigrants are somehow to blame for their downward trajectory. White privilege is the solvent used, throughout American history, to dissolve multiracial coalitions of working people, and the drug used to brainwash whites into making common cause with the class of CEOs, financiers and landlords. Kicking that drug habit is the only way white America can ever set itself free from the past."

White privilege is killing America. (via salon)

Dear Son, 
I don’t understand why you were chosen by God I know He knows what He is doing because God Almighty doesn’t make mistakes. So that’s why you were called home I think of you day and night just wish I was there to save you from harm. I always told you I will never let nothing happen to you. And that’s what hurt sooooooo much that I couldn’t protect you but we love you. I will never let you die in my heart, you will always live forever Your dad and best friend. Your old dude, that’s what you called me.

A sample of tweets on #Ferguson tonight, 8/13/14

Twitter has been incredibly useful throughout all of this. It seems like the mainstream press is just getting caught up. (And arrested and doused with tear gas at this point).

If none of these cops get charged (because being fired is far from good enough), I will be severely angry.
