Even just googling “how not to be racist” will give you more resources than I think you’ll honestly ever have time to read.

So instead of being a whiny, passive aggressive jerk: just seriously type that into a search bar. Or copy paste it from this post. I have faith in you.

Stars

Just want to take a break from the usual stuff to talk about how amazing stars are. When we look at stars we get to look into the past. Due to the way and speed light travels(186,282 mps) in, we see stars as they once were. It takes light, from the closest star to us, to travel to Earth in about eight minutes. When Earth based telescopes look at the sun, they are seeing it as it was eight minutes ago. Using Earth based telescopes and advancing technology we can see stars that no longer exist.

There are stars out there that are more than thousands, millions or billions of of light years away. So, if a star is a million light years away and died a million years ago, we will see it die now.  If another star died four million years ago, but is a hundred million light years away, we’ll still be able to see it for another 96 million years.

Now, two brothers who spent 17 months in jail before Judge Joseph Claps in June cleared them of the attempted murder are suing the city and two detectives. And the judge’s stinging rebuke of the way police handled the case against Vernell and Antwyone Green is the centerpiece of their federal lawsuit. Vernell Green, 23, and his younger brother Antwyone, 22, were charged with the January 2013 attempted murder of Jryce Starling, 17, based entirely on Starling’s flawed hospital identification of them as the gunmen who shot him in the 8500 block of South Hoyne, the suit alleges. Detectives James Scannell and Lorenzo Sandoval took a week before talking to Starling at Christ Hospital. And when they did, they showed him only two photos — mugshots of the Green brothers. “The investigation in this case, pretty much, can only be described as pathetic,” Claps said as he cleared both men at the end of a bench trial on June 16.

Can you imagine spending almost two years in jail for something you didn’t do?

Being good to each other is so important, guys.

And everyone should keep in mind that shit like that is not a contest of who has it worse.

If you victim blame someone who has been raped, I will believe you have the mentality of a rapist. And that will make me extremely wary of you and probably never talk to you again.

Guys it’s really important during this whole ferguson protest that we as social media DO NOT back down until punishment is dealt to those racists. If we let this movement die, then the oppressors win. I’ve seen stuff like this before and the majority of people stop posting about it within a week. We can’t let that happen, this is too important. so keep reblogging and keep posting until these darn racists are punished for their awful inhumane actions.

  • 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 $200,000 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

Sleeve work from today. I’m learning to draw everything really small, then blowing it up on the photocopier and just using my rough sketch as a stencil. I love creating colourful tattoos using as few colours as possible. This took 6 hours to tattoo from start to finish.
Thankyou for looking
