Today In Solidarity (10.4.14): Protesters in Washington, DC shutdown Georgetown for several hours, marching for justice for Mike Brown and an end to police brutality. So proud of the people still keep this going, around the country and world. #staywoke #farfromover (PT II)

The movement is growing. Are you a part of it?

Four years of Locs/Dreads meant, Four years of ridicule. Four years of stereotyping. Four years of being looked down upon. Four years or disgusted looks. But I saw it as, Four years of endurance. Four years of mental/spiritual growth. Four years of finding myself. And it stands as is. Natural Hair Is Everything. (EYN) Embrace Your Naps.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution it’s really scaryit’s really infuriatingit’s really exhausting

Her face makes me very very very very very sad. I wanna cry

Fuck all cops.

I don’t know why the husband believes they were targeted because they were an interracial couple… SHE was targeted because SHE was black… da fuk…

Right. He somehow had to make it about him when it was obvious that it was about her being black.

I think he’s saying interracial because it’s the fact that the cops can’t even fathom that a white man would be interacting with a black woman, by choice, unless it was through prostitution. Otherwise, why would he want to be seen with one?
