The Trials of Socrates

Socrates was executed for corruption of youth and impiety. I aim to do him proud.

"Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box."

"All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity."

"I thank all Police, you are the ‘Thin Blue Line’ protecting normal Americans from aggressive and entitled primitive savages. America is surely at the tipping point."

Just a few quotes (in case it’s hard to read) from that collection of donation messages for Darren Wilson.

Does anyone else want to say it’s not about race?

This is why white people get side-eyed. Some of these people are your aunts and uncles.

I am so fucking disgusted by people right now.

This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious.

"The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality"

Never forget
When your classmates wrinkled their noses at the scent of your lunch still lingering on your clothes,
Even though their ancestors had conquered half the world in search of the spices you ate.

Never forget
How they jeered at your mother’s bindi, making crude jokes about how ridiculous it looked on her,
And after ten years, how they all wore the exact same ornament on their own foreheads to keep up with the current trends.

Never forget
When they repeatedly stumbled over the sharp letters which formed your name, forcing you to repeat yourself several times before giving up;
Only to have those very letters tattooed on their own flesh, in a language they do not comprehend.

Always remember
Your culture belongs to you,
Not to them.

me: I told you my thing I’m going to write a blog post about right
about how people who kill themselves shouldn’t be defined by it?
like people can fight the desire to kill themselves 1000 times
and then when they die it’s like
“oh, they LOST”
they didn’t lose, it’s 1000 to 1

This is exactly what I want to remind people of today re: Robin Williams

There are going to be people out there who are feeling like: ‘if he couldn’t do it, how can I?’

He did do it, though.  He won.  For 63 years he beat that shit.

When you live with mental illness, you can face suicidal ideation on a daily basis (I know I do).  And for 63 years he did.  He succeeded, he excelled, and (for his time) managed to do it with compassion, ethics, and empathy.

He is not, to me, someone who ‘failed to fight mental illness and addiction’.

He was victorious for 30 years longer than I have been.  For many years longer than many of us make it.  He is a winner and we can all be inspired by how long he survived and by the life he lived.  He makes me feel like I can make it another 30 at least.

Robin Williams: 63 years a winner.

Mike Brown was murdered and his body was left uncovered, lying on the ground for four hours. The police murder him, disrespect him after death, and then, to top it all off, destroy memorials made by his community.

Remember I posted this and people kept calling me a liar in my notes and in my inbox? They said I had no proof.

Seriously guys, please spread the word about this petition.

SIGN THIS because:

• cops think that Mike Brown’s life was worth less than the $3 candy bar he supposedly stole
• one white person can cry about a cop killing their dog and get a law passed requiring officers to undergo additional training to handle dogs
• but every 28 hours a black person is killed by police
• and yet at least one million dissenting voices will be required to be heard by the US government

At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.

remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record

I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.

If you are on Twitter, here’s a good roster of people to follow if you want to keep updated.
