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.

Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.
It is not a riot.
Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)
Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The prople of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.
Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.

Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani
Hassani, a product designer from Afganistan, build (by hand) a wind-powered device that trips land mines as it rolls across the ground. It is made using bamboo and biodegradable products.
Many of these mines are active and near populated areas in countries like Afganistan and are hard to remove. The UN says that one mine clearance specialist is killed, and two injured, for every 5,000 mines cleared.
Hassani’s cheap and easy to make method has been achieving great results.

In a world of overcomplicated solutions, we need more people who think “Wait, why don’t we just roll a giant freaking ball over it?”

this guy made a katamari for landmines

The Chief of Police justifies the use of a tazer on an 8 year old girl by saying they could have used their guns or batons, essentially. What restraint.

So very relevant to Ferguson, because I imagine the broader pattern of how police respond to people of color affected the outcome of this situation much like it did with Mike Brown.  Today, the police “just” used a tazer and caused some traumatization.  But … are there situations of police shooting and killing Native Americans in the U.S. (or First Nations people in Canada) that don’t hit the media because Native Americans are even more invisible than black people in the U.S.?

This…this commentary does not honor this little girl. And it does NOT address the nature of Native oppression in the US. Which is different from antiblack oppression.

Comparing an instance of violence against a nonblack person to an instance of violence against a Black person is…unhelpful. And it is a feature of antiblack oppression. Using Black bodies as yardsticks to judge all other forms of oppression is hurtful and harmful.

Native people are not more invisible than Black people because that comparison doesn’t even mean anything.

Hypervisibility is actually a key aspect of Black suffering. We are commodities. Our death is spectacle. It is never respected.

Anti-native oppression operates under different rules.

It would probably be more respectful to EVERYONE if people focused on the specific contexts of individual victims of state violence instead of comparing them to make sweeping ‘more/less’ statements about racialized groups.
