So remember when CNN suggested that police in Ferguson should use water cannons on protesters? It was just one of the more infuriating moments in the network’s coverage of the escalating violence that’s happened in the St. Louis suburbs since Michael Brown’s death on August 9.
On Monday night, at least 250 protesters showed up to the network’s headquarters in Atlanta to protest holding signs that read “How good must we look to be considered innocent?” The message was in response to CNN’s coverage late last week and over the weekend that focused on what Brown did to make himself a suspect.
So far, the network hasn’t reported anything about the protests happening on their front lawn. (x)

Rosemary Church should have just kept her mouth shut. It’s funny how CNN haven’t reported this yet.

Because why go outside (gasp!) and get involved when you can just like and reblog posts from the comfort of your home.

Because sometimes you’re young, and can’t leave your area, or parents won’t let You get involved. so the only thing you can do is spread the message so someone who can help will see it. 

"Aaaand made a comic to make people feel bad about themselves, when I’m not doing anything either. Gee that was good use of my time." 

why are people starting to make comics on what they cant really saybecause they’re scared…but says it anyways in a drawing,they’re still gonna get backfire and messages on these dumbass shit,this is the same as that dumbass shark drawing

Also, note: online activism, while not as “active” as demonstrations and protests (do you have reliable transportation? Can you take time off from work? Are you physically or mentally able to make the trip and participate? Do you have the finances to be able to do this? are there an protests in your area?), there is now a GENERATION of kids being exposed to these discussions and theories about race and religion and sexuality and gender and ableism, that they were not hearing about previously.

We now have young girls openly celebrating each other and representations of themselves in media, when they’d be tearing each other apart just 10 years ago (Anyone remember mid-2000 fandom culture towards women? Remember “not like other girls”? I do. Shit was terrifying). We have PoC and trans people getting their voices heard when talking about their firsthand experiences.

Using the Internet as a medium, a BUNCH of kids and adults have learned new things about sociology that they wouldn’t have been exposed to otherwise.

All I am saying is, if it wasn’t for this website, I’d still be just as racist and transphobic and misogynistic and classist as I was when I was 13. I’d be a LOT worse. Don’t tell me that online activism doesn’t do anything. It teaches people and is readily accessible to most people and it encourages discussion. There’s always more that can be done, but don’t mark off online activism as lazy or unimportant.

it’s truly amazing how some white women get so threatened when a black woman is shining. 

y’all say male egos are weak, but let’s try the ego of a white woman when a black woman is garnering a lot of positive attention. 

watch how suddenly they want the rules to change. gone is the solidarity that a woman’s body is her own, oh no, not for black women. now she needs to cover up and speak less.

Les Twins Freestyle NOXX Antwerp Club August 15

Baby, but your knees!!!

^^^^^ That looked like it hurt.

Young man to the left, you aren’t part of LT so please refrain from trying the twin telepathy. Thank you, bye.

LMAO Larry was mad when the dj changed the song talking about “next time check with me. I didn’t dance yet that was just warmup.” Why were you warming up so long Larry? I love that man.

Lau killed it and hurt my entire skeletal structure with that knee march shit.
