When MLK said “I they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" he was saying that ‘I hope one day that i can walk down the street without being stereotyped and killed’

Why would he be talking about white people.

In what world would be trying to fight for “white rights” or for white people to be treated ‘equally’ when they already had a majority of the power, what fucking sense does that make.

But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…

An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”

Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.

Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.

"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

fun fact: two years ago, I was living at my then-boyfriend’s parents house while he was away in the air force. his mother asked me one day if I needed deodorant, and if so, what kind. I knew I liked lady speed stick, so I went online to look at their scents. I asked for cherry blossom. 

well, when she went to the store, that exact scent only was on a huge sale for like, $0.50 each. so she bought like ten. 

I swear to god. it has been TWO FUCKING YEARS. and I only JUST ran out. finally. I’m so fucking sick of cherry blossOM LIKE DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I AM OVER THIS DEODORANT 

so I just got myself some dove cucumber and green tea deodorant and I’m telling you I feel smooth and fresh and peaceful and I keep catching the great scent and it’s awesome okay
