I apologize if 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, and 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.

It’s been more than a month since this happened, but please don’t forget Eric Gardner or his story. He can no longer tell it.

Moral of the story is actually don’t get in trouble with the law.

no

Yes

What did he do to get in trouble with the law?
He sold a pack of cigarettes. A pack of cigarettes, legal to sell if you own a business and pay up to the government for a piece of paper that states that you have someone else’s permission to sell something.
That’s what they killed him for.

 He died because he resisted arrest, no cop is going to go up and just put someone in a choke hold for selling cigarettes. They will do that if and ONLY if he doesn’t cooperate initially. Simple. Do what the cops tell you to do.

Is that what you saw? He repeatedly yelled "I CANNOT BREATHE" and was ignored. Placing him in a choke hold, then tackling him and piling on top of him (which you can see for yourself in the video, unless you are denying the actual events as they took place) in which he isn’t resisting arrest, they’ve clearly got him. They also clearly ignored his cries for help. He was not selling cigarettes at the time, he was explaining before they forcefully took him down that a fight had broken out on the street and he was simply trying to break it up. You can clearly hear the others on the street corroborate up his story. The police acted excessively, and now a man is dead over almost NOTHING. So show some damn respect, for if you were being choked to death on the street and yelled out for help, I think you’d want TO BREATHE too. What does "I cannot breathe, I cannot breathe" mean other than the obvious? Mr. Garner was an asthmatic man, and the excessive force to bring him down, placing him in a choke hold and literally crushing all the air out of him while he screamed for his life, that is fucking horrible. Unimaginable, except Mr. Garner’s family not only must imagine this, they must somehow come to terms with it. How does one exactly come to terms with something like this? I have ashtma, and I cannot even begin to imagine the horrible final moments Mr. Garner was experiencing. When you’re having an asthma attack, you need air, not force applied to your neck. Not pressure on your entire body, thus your lungs. Show some fucking respect. Don’t comment on my post and continue to excuse the unexcusable. I can’t think of a simpler way to put it than this: what the police did in this video is unforgivable. It is outrageous that a father in Staten Island could be suffocated to death, have his head slammed into the sidewalk, and left to lie there just dying. The moment those cops chose to approach him, Mr. Garner’s fate had already been decided. There’s no excuse for the unexcusable.
Update and important to note: the chokehold has been BANNED by police departments for years. “Chokeholds are dangerous. In Los Angeles alone, between 1977 and 1982, 16 people died in police custody after being placed in chokeholds. The LAPD banned the practice in 1983, and the NYPD followed suit 10 years later. Since then, however, many New York cops appear to have ignored that ban. From 2009 to 2013, the city’s Civilian Complaint Review Board received more than 1,000 complaints regarding NYPD chokeholds. The CCRB substantiated just nine of those complaints, and only one officer was disciplined — by being docked some vacation days.” (Source)

PLEASE WATCH THIS

Then read this and possibly sign this.

My tribe isn’t federally recognized, so we’re basically invisible to the government (you can read about that here). This dam raise is a super huge threat to our culture; stopping it from happening is really important.

IF YOU CAN’T SIGN THE PETITION, PLEASE AT LEAST REBLOG THIS POST. IT WOULD MEAN A LOT TO ME AND MY PEOPLE. LIKE, PLEASE.

ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME

IT’S WORKING

The tags just keep getting better. Keeping Erika’s tags below (because I can’t manage to cut and paste them like ones above). 

But yes, I will never believe that Loghain was glad about Cailan’s death. Never never never. YMMV, but my Loghain grieved and blamed himself, even though it was truly not his fault. Because when you get right down to it, it was the darkspawn that killed Cailan.
