I’m not sure what reaction to Ferguson pisses me off more:
"The police are just doing their jobs! These blacks are just blowing this way out of proportion."
"The situation in Ferguson sucks. But it’s not about race! Just police brutality and government run amok. Race has nothing to do with it."
A mother lost her child. A father lost his son. A young man lost his life. #JusticeForMikeBrown
During national events in which race causes a country-wide divide, you always find out if the white folks you follow on social media are cool or not.
There have been a few people on Twitter (none on Tumblr) that have had me like:
"this is how you feel about black folk and ive been following you all year???"
