I apologize as this comes off as disrespectful to Michael Brown or Trayvon Martin. Or their families. Or YOU, the reader. I’m not about that. That’s not why I drew this.

I am just really freaked out that 40% of Americans (and 47% of White Americans) do not think that the killings and violence in Ferguson ‘raise any racial issues.’ Fellow White Persons, this is our chance to learn. This is our chance to change.

When Trayvon Martin was murdered because Full Grown Men in America are frightened to violence by the presence black children, the dialogue turned very quickly into a conversation about gun control.

And gun control is an issue that deserves our attention.

But it won’t change the massive poverty in Black America. The arrest rate. The education statistics. The institutional, systemic, casual, or passive racism that plagues our country.

And it wouldn’t have saved Michael Brown.

Anyway. I’m sorry if this comes off as disrespectful or insincere or preachy. I’m sorry if my execution (or personality) gets in the way of what I’m trying to say. I am an imperfect artist, an imperfect person, and I am, undoubtedly, blinded to a million things by my own glaring whiteness. So this might be… Lord, this might be awful. I’m so sorry if it’s awful. Really.

But. I just keep thinking… Look, my wife is pregnant with our first child. A boy. We’re nervous, we’re excited, we’re SO ANXIOUS because what the hell do you do with babies? WE don’t know. But if we were a black family… in this country… we would be so terrified. Because we live in a nation that murders the children of black parents, puts it on the news WITH RIOTS AND TEAR GAS as decoration, and still half of us don’t even see it as a problem. Can you imagine that? Can you imagine bringing a child into that reality, to face the odds we lay out for black kids?

That would break me. I’ve never known anything like that. No one should ever know anything like that.

So let’s talk to our friends about race. Lets talk to our families. And when actual victims of racism try to tell us what’s going on in, say, a peaceful community protest as they are being gassed and shot at by cops WE SHOULD LISTEN TO AND BELIEVE THEM. Let’s talk to each other about this until we are all on the same page.

And then let’s turn the damn page.

Long ago, in ancient times, our ancestors spoke of a TV show called “Steven Universe”.  Though it disappeared from this world, they prophesied that, one day, it would return to Thursday nights on Cartoon Network.  Hark, the stars have aligned, and the loyal see that glorious time is upon us!  Steven has returned, as voiced in ancient song, to separate the faithful from the unbelievers and usher in a glorious new age of consistent, weekly new episodes at a reliable 6:30 pm timeslot!!

So new episodes start this Thursday, y’all should go watch.

COACH PROMO BY PAUL VILLECO!!! 

THIS THURSDAY! 6:30!!!!!! GARNET AND AMETHYST WILL FUSE! CAN YOU HANDLE IT?!?!? …CAN THEY?!?!?

Do not miss this one in HD cause the color in this jam is off the CHARTS!

Well, I think we also have to talk about the narrative, and making sure we’re starting at the beginning. You will find that the people doing the oppressing often want to start the narrative at a convenient point. They always want to start the story in the middle. Let’s start with a kid getting shot & killed…and left in the street for 4 hours. I’ve never seen a white body left in the street for 4 hours in the sweltering heat…the cop doesn’t call in the shooting…the body isn’t put in an ambulance, it’s shuttered away in some shady, unmarked SUV. There’s a lot of bizarre behavior going on, and THAT is the story. That is where we need journalism. That is where we need that element of our society to kick into gear, and not keep playing a loop of what a kid did apparently in a convenience store. We need journalism to kick in and start telling the story from the begiining, this is about finding justice for a kid that was shot, an 18 year old that was shot, period. And this idea that he stole a handful of cheap cigars, what’s that, $5 bucks from a convenience store? I’ve lived in white suburbs of this country for a long time. I’ve known plenty of white kids who steal stuff from a convenience store. This idea that every time a black person does something, they automatically become a thug worthy of their own death…we don’t own drug crimes. We’re not the only ones that sell and do drugs all the time, we’re not the only ones that steal, we’re not the only ones that talk crazy to cops. You know there’s a complete double standard, a completely different experience that a certain element of this country has a privilege of, of being treated like human beings…and the rest of us are not treated like human beings…Period. And that needs to be discussed. That is the story” - Jesse Williams

  • Question: I love how black people make mike brown the hero instead of the clerk he assaulted and robbed. That guy has to deal with ghetto uneducated thugs and welfare queens everyday and somehow hasn't snapped. I love white people like you who have no extent of the degradation and just blindly bitch about social justice. People like mike brown would kill you if they could, they don't respect the law or society, and think they have the right to do as they please (this applies to all races) - Anonymous

    *deep breathes* First things first, glad you stumbled onto my humble blog. Now strap yourself in, cause it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!

    Seems like the only “uneducated thug” here is your racist ass, since you didn’t bother to bring a single fact into your bullshit anonymous comment. It has been confirmed by multiple sources, INCLUDING the police chief of Ferguson himself, that Mike Brown WAS NOT stopped as suspect in the “robbery” of a pack of cigars from a convenience store. The corrupt pigs masquerading as law enforcement tried and failed to make that claim stick. They even went so far as to release a tape of the theft against the DOJ’s orders to corroborate the mountain of lies building to justify the murder of an unarmed teenager. However, even they recognized that it was time to let that story go.

    But let us not be deterred by facts or reality. I find it hilarious that you would talk about people with no respect for law or society in the same breath as Mike Brown. I don’t give a flying fuck if he WAS a thug who stole from that store. Does that somehow make him exempt from due process? Are his constitutional rights somehow voided? The individual who violated the law that day was Darren Wilson, the person sworn to uphold and protect it. You know who seems to be violating the law the most in the aftermath of this murder? Law enforcement, yet again! Conspiracy, violations of first amendment rights, inciting violence, abuse of power, use of excessive force— take your pick. But I’m sure you’re one of those lovely Klan folks that don’t believe “thugs and welfare queens” are even human beings, so why should they be afforded equal recognition under the law.

    And while I will settle for high yellow on a bad day, I have never been nor will I ever be white. have no extent of the degradation and just blindly following what exactly?! I’m a queer woman of color living in a homophobic, sexist, racist society. I worry every single day that the next news story I’ll see about a killer cop will feature a family member as a victim. My cousin got roughed up by the police a mile from his IVY LEAGUE school because they didn’t think he belonged in that neighborhood. Fuck, my mother had to be walked into her elementary school every single day for a year BY A US MARSHALL because she dared to go to a white school in a segregated southern town. What do you know about degradation, beyond the way you degrade others through some fucked up perspective you’ve ascribed to entire race/ethnicity of people? I have to deal with bigots like you everyday— it’s amazing that I haven’t snapped. A Black person has never tried to kill me, however I have had a gun pulled on me by a WHITE MAN while canvassing during a political campaign. The only people I’m worried are trying to kill me are people like you. 

    In closing:
