    PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS.

    This Thursday, Scotland votes for its independence.

    The BBC is trying to report that Yes to Independence is losing. They’re using photos to imply our gatherings are tiny and insignificant instead of the many photos like those above. They’re reporting that an anti-independence march by the Orange Order (think the KKK with more British flags) was a peaceful pro-union family march. They have been caught editing clips to discredit our First Minister.

    There is a protest outside BBC headquarters right now. They are claiming there are a maximum of 350 protesters.

    Watch for yourself. There are far more people outside their offices right now and they are being ignored and misreported.

    We need to be seen. The only way we’ve been able to disseminate accurate information has been through social media. The media we rely on to spread unbiased information is lying to us, trying to suppress us.

    PLEASE SHARE. PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS. WE NEED OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD.

    The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.

    Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.

    According to the police statement, a “concerned citizen” called the cops because Watts and her (white) boyfriend were “engaging in indecent exposure” and by that I mean kissing each other, fully clothed, and nothing else.

    Watts was handcuffed after police asked her to show ID and she refused (which is LEGAL in California). So not only did some anonymous asshole think a white man kissing a black woman was grounds for calling the cops, but those cops ignored the legal rights of that black woman.

    • Do not forget Michael Brown
    • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
    • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
    • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
    • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
    • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
    • Do not forget Ferguson

    Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

    I had to reblog this again because it just reduced me to tears. 

    As most of you know, I am an attorney. And I am an attorney licensed in Minnesota. This is the state where I took an oath last year to uphold state and federal laws and to protect the rights of the citizens.

    It PAINS me to see this. To see these unjust cops who I for all intents & purposes, have to stand along side. When they are abusing EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of POWER. Minneapolis/St. Paul have BEEN a war zone. I’m ashamed. I’m embarrassed.

    Not all officers are bad. Please don’t let that be the take away. But police brutality is VERY FUCKING REAL. 

    Watch this. If this doesn’t move you, if this doesn’t make you cry out in agony and want to change the world, I don’t know what will.
