Anonymous I was wondering, what's the point of the riots? I know it's a call for justice, but what change will it actually cause? Is the hope that higher-ups in the government will do something?


They’re protests, not riots. 

Riot is a “code word” for a group of angry black people who are upset about things that white people would rather not take the time to learn about.

Information about the case has been coming out very slowly, and the officer who killed Michael Brown has still not been arrested or charged with murder. The protesters are hoping for more action to be taken.

falstafff just an fyi to people who are talking out of their ass about weed. if you are an avid toker, and do so almost if not every day, there are instances where even if you quit cold turkey one day, weed will stay in your system for upwards of 30 days. he could have just quit smoking two weeks ago and still had the weed in his system. regardless of that, just because you smoke weed doesn't mean you deserve to have your life taken from you. so that's that.


I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.

If you are on Twitter, here’s a good roster of people to follow if you want to keep updated.

Early evening in Ferguson. August 19th.


okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

Protesters upset about the smearing of Mike Brown converged at CNN headquarters.

“When it started raining and lightning and the crowd didn’t disperse, my energy level shot up,” said Kwame Thompson, an attorney in Atlanta and St. Louis. “It was a peaceful demonstration that was against police brutality and in support of Mike Brown and his family.”

This feels unprecedented.
